Chapter 398: Spy?

Translator: _Min_  Editor: Caron_


What happened at the airport was only a small interruption .

When Jiang Chen got into the driver seat, he immediately forgot about the unlucky guy . He put the key in and started the engine .

Jiang Chen rolled down the window and turned on the air conditioning, allowing the cold breeze to blow away the heat in the car .

"Thanks . " Xia Shiyu put on her seatbelt .

"No problem, it was on my way anyway . "

"No… I'm talking about what happened at the airport . "

When she thought about Jiang Chen's expression when he stood in front of her, her heart somehow pumped a little faster .

"Oh, that - no worries . Remember to call me whenever you have any problems," Jiang Chen said nonchalantly as he maneuvered the steering wheel .

Xin's security wasn't the best, and since she was in a place she wasn't familiar with, he was worried about Xia Shiyu's safety .

[Maybe I should hire a bodyguard for her?] Jiang Chen deliberated in his mind .

When she heard Jiang Chen's words, her normally expressionless face turned red . Combined with the small droplets of sweat on her pale face and the pink foundation she used, she looked like a peach covered in the morning dew .

Because her mind went completely blank, Xia Shiyu didn't respond .

The atmosphere in the car went from silent to intimate . Jiang Chen didn't realize this until he peeked at Xia Shiyu because she was so quiet and he finally saw the conflicted emotions and redness on her face .

Because the windows were rolled up, the fresh scent of jasmine drifted into his nose . Because of the atmosphere, Jiang Chen's heart also started racing .

"Did you perm your hair?' Jiang Chen chose a random topic to break the silence .

But this unintentional question hit the mark . With women, you could have a differing opinion about changes in their looks, but you couldn't simply ignore the change in her hairstyle or clothing, even if it was just a new hair clip or keychain . In the event that you didn't comment on the change, women could keep a debate going for an entire night, just to get your attention .

By coincidence, Jiang Chen made just the right move in winning her heart . He didn't know it himself because he was in the middle of a turn and was focused on the road ahead .

Xia Shiyu's body visibly shook as she said reservedly:

"Does it look good?"

She immediately regretted the question .

[Did that sound too superficial? Should I have waited for him to compliment me himself for it to be more natural…?] Xia Shiyu turned her head and looked out the window as she was bombarded by her own thoughts .

Facepalmed men would not overthink .

Jiang Chen praised her: "Looks really good, really fresh, but why did you suddenly think of perming your hair?"

Xia Shiyu had always given him the impression of being authentic, serene, yet distant . But the perm gave her a "fresh" vibe that was normally found in students .

"My coworker… Mhmm, a friend told me that I'm too formal with how I dress, so she suggested I change things up . " [I was also probably too unfashionable] Xia Shiyu added in her mind .

"I see, but I still think your hair from before looked better . "

"Then I'll change it back," Xia Shiyu immediately said .

"Eh? No, I'm only stating my opinion; frequent perms are damaging to the hair . " Jiang Chen face-palmed .

"Okay . " Xia Shiyu nodded as she looked at her reflection in the window and secretively examined her hair .

"Oh, which friend was it?" Jiang Chen was surprised that Xia Shiyu had any friends .

He always thought her social circle was limited to her coworkers .

"Su Mengqi… The manager of the human resources department who moved with us from Wanghai to Xiangjiang," Xia Shiyu replied .

They chatted for a while until they arrived at the mansion located at the north end of Coro Island .

When he parked the car in the garage, Ayesha was already waiting for him .

Because she knew a guest was coming, her outfit was relatively "traditional . " A light T-shirt paired with short shorts - stunning and lively .

After opening the door, Ayesha took Xia Shiyu's luggage . Because she hadn't seen her for a few months, Xia Shiyu had mixed feelings towards the foreign girl .

Partially a feeling of competitiveness, but partially gratitude for a person who saved her life .

In response to Ayesha's directness, she felt somewhat uncomfortable . Although she wanted to stay at Jiang Chen's place, when she was actually in front of the door, she changed her mind .

Just as Jiang Chen led her to her room, she was secretively observing Ayesha's eyes .

But unfortunately, she didn't see any jealousy inside .

This made her a bit frustrated . [Do I not look like competition? I even put on some makeup on the plane…]

Two red swirls suddenly appeared on her face .

She realized just how childish her thoughts were .

"Where's the virtual reality helmet?" After putting down her luggage, Xia Shiyu asked right away in an attempt to use work to alleviate the awkwardness in her heart .

"There's no rush, you can take a look after lunch . Why don't you take a shower to relax? The bathroom is at the end of the second-floor hallway . " Jiang Chen smiled .

Xia Shiyu hesitated then nodded .

Because there was no direct flight, she had been in transit since last night . She was indeed a little tired .

Just then, Jiang Chen's phone suddenly rang .

"I'm going to take a call . If you need anything, just let Ayesha know . "

As he spoke, Jiang Chen took out his phone and walked to the sofa .

When he picked up, Ivan's grave voice came through .

"Boss, we found a spy in the company . "

"A spy?" Jiang Chen frowned . "Did you confirm their identity?"

It was hard for a spy to exist at the management level due to the electronic collars - they wouldn't escape if they were found, so no one was foolish enough to betray him . But at lower levels, it was hard to say - aside from the first 100 refugees who joined Celestial Trade, the loyalty of the newly recruited soldiers was uncertain .

"It's currently unclear, but a backdoor was installed on the computer at Coro division yesterday . It sent 7 megabytes of data to an IP in Iceland," Ivan said in a deep voice .

Iceland was probably only a jumping board; no one knew exactly where the data went .

"I see, don't alert anyone yet," Jiang Chen ordered .

"Understood . "

After he hung up, Jiang Chen fell into deep thought while holding his phone .

Too many people were interested in Celestial . Country F was the most suspicious, but UA, who always intervened everywhere, was also on the list . Even their potential ally, Hua, could potentially send spies .

Two arms tenderly hugged Jiang Chen from behind . Ayesha sensed that something was bothering him as she whispered .

"What happened?"

"… There is a spy in Celestial," Jiang Chen said in an undertone .

A hint of sharpness flashed in her eyes as she whispered in his ear .

"Do you need my help?"

"Do you know anything about computers?" Jiang Chen said helplessly .

Ayesha shook her head . Her sapphire eyes flashed brightly .

[But I could kill . ]

Jiang Chen understood the message in her eyes as he sighed .

"It's not a problem that can be solved by killing . The key is to find the people responsible . "

[But how?]

[Ask Yao Yao? That's not feasible . Not that Yao Yao didn't have the skills, but she might be unfamiliar with the structure of the internet and programs in the 21st century . For example, people good at League of Legends might not be the best Nintendo player .

Yao Yao's security measures could destroy any of the hackers in this world . Just like New Era, Future 1 . 0's code still remained uncracked to this day since the code she wrote couldn't be understood by anyone in this world, making it impossible for anyone to install a backdoor in the program .

Because Celestial Trade didn't possess any critical secrets, they used the Windows 7 operating system and programs in this world .

Although nothing critical was lost, the feeling of being monitored didn't feel good at all!

Jiang Chen began to think hard with a frown on his face .

Suddenly, his eyes lit up .

[Yes! I have a little hacker I forgot about . ]

He slapped his forehead as immediately remembered the guy with a "younger sister complex" as he dialed the number .
