“Mr. Ji, what’s the problem that troubles you the most as the executive of a big corporation?” In the lounge, Professor Xu sat on the sofa with his legs crossed. “Are your subordinates disobedient? Do your subordinates always like to disobey you? Are all your competitors against you?”
Ji Shiting raised an eyebrow in puzzlement.
“The longer you stay in power, the stronger your desire to control. You always want everything to be done according to your will.” Professor Xu chuckled. “You’ll feel very uncomfortable once something leaves your control, right?”
Hearing this, Ye Shengge subconsciously glanced at the man beside her.
At first, Ji Shiting was indeed a controlling person as Professor Xu had said.
However, Ji Shiting still didn’t say anything and instead pressed his thin lips together.
“You don’t have to deny it, Mr. Ji. I know you’re that kind of person, so I used to have high hopes for you. I think you’re the most likely person to succeed.” He smiled. “Because people who have a strong desire for control and power are often very stubborn and conceited. They trust their own will and views without hesitation.”
Ji Shiting frowned and said, “Did you choose me because you think I’m controlling and arrogant?”
“Partly. It’s basically because of your social status, Mr. Ji.” Professor Xu chuckled and took a sip. “Before talking about my research, I want to talk about Ms. Ye.”
Ye Shengge sat up straight.
Finally, it was happening.
Ji Shiting grabbed her hand and looked at her. He then looked at Professor Xu and said, “Shengge’s second personality is related to you.”
Ye Shengge was shocked. She had been guessing what Professor Xu was going to say to her. After all, she had nothing to do with their research.
However, before her second personality came out, she had been in a state of amnesia for a long time, and so was Shiting now.
Her eyes widened.
“That’s right. It looks like you’ve guessed what my research is about, Mr. Ji.” Professor Xu chuckled. “Strictly speaking, Ms. Ye is my first test subject.”
A test subject.
Ye Shengge bit her lips and said, “Have I seen you before?”
“Oh, you have but you might not remember.” Professor Xu smiled. “If I’m not mistaken, your second personality should’ve disappeared by now, right?”
Ye Shengge looked at her warily and didn’t say anything.
“Haven’t you ever suspected? There’s something fishy about the appearance of your second personality.” Professor Xu smiled. “You might have found many explanations for yourself, and your psychiatrist might have found many explanations for you, but in fact, those aren’t the reasons. The root cause is that your second personality can be said to have been put into your brain by me.”
Ye Shengge took a deep breath.
Putting another personality into her brain… She couldn’t help shivering.
Ji Shiting stroked her back to comfort her and then looked at Professor Xu. “How did you do it?”
“Most of what you remember is true, Ms. Ye.” Professor Xu smiled. “You were kidnapped by human traffickers before, and you were indeed frightened but you didn’t kill anyone. Actually, it wasn’t you who killed someone, but a boy several years older than you. You didn’t have the stamina back then.”
