It meant that Ji Shiting might die.
“I won’t let you get close to him!” Ye Shengge was furious. “You lunatic! You lunatic! Why aren’t you dead yet?”
“Shengge.” Ji Shiting hugged her tightly and pressed his lips against her forehead. “Don’t be afraid. It’s alright.”
Ye Shengge fell into his embrace and couldn’t help shaking. “Shiting, don’t cooperate with him. Don’t! I’d rather die than let him operate on you!”
Ji Shiting might die if the operation failed, but even if it succeeded, he would become another person. That Xu had given her a cruel and bloodthirsty personality. Who knew what he would do to Ji Shiting?
Professor Xu looked at the two of them with great interest. He seemed to be very happy to see them furious and breaking down.
However, Ye Shengge was indeed furious, but Ji Shiting was too calm as if he didn’t know his current situation.
Professor Xu couldn’t help squinting. After a while, he suddenly smiled and said, “Ms. Ye, I can help you set up a new personality. If you can’t get the original chip, you can implant another one.”
“Dream on!” Ye Shengge was furious. If it weren’t for Ji Shiting holding her back, she might’ve beaten Professor Xu up.
However, she suddenly felt a sharp pain on her neck, then her vision went dark and she fell into Ji Shiting’s arms.
Ji Shiting retracted his hands and saw how quiet she was. He put her on the sofa and looked at Professor Xu.
Professor Xu raised an eyebrow and said, “What do you mean?”
“Women can’t help being emotional and idealistic.” Ji Shiting curled his lips. “Let her be quiet for a bit so we can continue talking.”
Professor Xu was shocked, then he smiled and said, “Mr. Ji, I wasn’t wrong about you.”
“That’s why I didn’t argue with you just now. It’s just that women who are in love always like to think that their man is perfect.” Ji Shiting sounded sarcastic, and he relaxed. “You’re right. If I had this technology, I would be excited too.”
Professor Xu raised an eyebrow and didn’t say anything.
“Jing Zhiyuan is in prison, and you’ve lost your source of funding, so your research has been progressing slowly these past few years. Other than me, no one else you call ‘superior’ has become your test subject. It’s just that your success rate is too low. You’re just afraid that the accidental deaths of those high-ranking officials will cause unnecessary trouble,” Ji Shiting said.
Professor Xu snorted and didn’t say anything.
“You attacked me because I attracted the attention of many people. Even if I went missing or died, others would think that it was Jing Zhiyuan’s doing, or someone else who treats me as an enemy. No one would investigate it.” Ji Shiting smiled. “You’re targeting me now, and you want to replace me with the personality you set. At the end of the day, it’s all for money. You need me to provide you with funds unconditionally. Am I right?”
