The news of Night Banquet being sealed had been reported by the media three days ago. As long as one wanted to investigate such an entertainment venue, the reason was there. Some netizens who had been paying attention to the news only clicked their tongues, but they didn’t know that the sealing of Night Banquet was just a pretense. The real thing that had been destroyed was the illegal research institute under Night Banquet.
Ye Shengge and Ji Shiting had gotten the first-hand news from Jing Tong. Hua Cheng and her subordinates had been arrested, and the victims had been sent to the hospital, including Yuan Junkun. He had only been locked up for a few days, but although he hadn’t been hurt, he had been shocked. He had stayed in the hospital for two days before being picked up by Old Yuan.
Besides, Xu Wei escaped in the end, but he didn’t take anything with him before he left, so he couldn’t do anything. Their virtual account was destroyed, and the money in the account was returned to Ji Shiting’s private account according to the transfer records.
Generally speaking, this operation was very successful, and Jiang Yu had made another contribution. Logically speaking, he should be dealing with the aftermath of this matter. Why had he suddenly come to Yang City? And from the sound of it, the matter was rather serious.
“Did something happen again?” Ye Shengge couldn’t help asking.
Ji Shiting was calm. He put away his phone and carried her off the desk. “I asked him to go to Qianfan Villa directly. We’ll wait for him at home.”
An hour later, they met Jiang Yu in the living room of Qianfan Villa.
He still looked solemn. He nodded and said, “There’s something you might not know. I planned to destroy the instruments and equipment on the spot, but the president asked someone to bring them back intact. I had to do it.”
Ye Shengge immediately realized something and inhaled sharply. “Thenâ€¦”
“Don’t worry.” Ji Shiting grabbed her hand and looked at Jiang Yu calmly. “And then?”
“And then, a few hours ago, I received reliable news. After those instruments were sent to the president’s manor, the president invited a few scientists to study them, but all the instruments were burnt when they were opened, and they couldn’t be restored at all. And the core data in the computer disappeared.” Jiang Yu paused. “It can’t be Xu Wei. It took only a few minutes from the time Hua Cheng sent the news to our arrival. He couldn’t have made it in time.”
Ye Shengge couldn’t help heaving a sigh of relief. It didn’t matter who did it as long as the instrument was destroyed.
Jiang Yu then looked at Ji Shiting and said, “I remember you left that morning. You were the first user of those instruments.”
Ji Shiting said, “What are you implying?”
“Did you do it?” Jiang Yu looked at him and said with a pressurizing gaze.
Ji Shiting smiled and said, “It doesn’t matter who did it. What matters is that the instruments are destroyed. As long as we capture Xu Wei, this immature technology can disappear from this world forever. Did you come here to question me because you also want this technology?”
Jiang Yu looked at him for a while and nodded. “You’re right. I’m grateful to him no matter who did it. If those devices landed in the hands of an ambitious person with power, the outcome might be worse..”
