Ji Shiting nodded and said, “Are you fine now?”
“No. Actually, that’s not the point of my trip,” Jiang Yu said. “Mr. Ji, you probably don’t know, but two of the victims I saved were connected after you. They were very lucky to have failed, so they didn’t suffer much and are still alive.”
Ji Shiting said, “Isn’t that good?”
“Not necessarily. Their families came to them and cried, but they acted very indifferent.” Jiang Yu looked at him and said word by word. “After the psychiatrists got involved, they all felt that they had different degrees of emotional stripping. To put it simply, they lost their ability to be in love, and they couldn’t love anyone. It was also difficult for them to feel emotions, so they didn’t understand why their families would hug them and cry.”
Ye Shengge looked at Ji Shiting when she heard that.
Her face paled, and she suddenly understood everything.
Ji Shiting was still calm. He paused and said, “Seems like the data was wrong after the instrument was tampered with, which led to this outcome. But it’s better than being successfully connected, isn’t it?”
Once the connection was successful, the victim would either become a puppet or die from pain.
It was just that they had lost the ability to be together, and this was the best outcome.
“That’s right.” Jiang Yu nodded and looked at Ye Shengge’s face. He had gotten what he wanted from Ye Shengge’s expression.
“You can leave if there’s nothing else,” Ji Shiting said.
“No,” Ye Shengge said. “Minister Jiang, I have something to ask you.”
Ji Shiting looked at her and frowned.
However, Ye Shengge was very insistent. She even asked Ji Shiting to return to the study first. She wanted to talk to Jiang Yu alone.
Ji Shiting looked at her for a while and nodded.
After Ji Shiting left, Ye Shengge looked at Jiang Yu and said, “Minister Jiang, as you can see, Shiting might be like the two victims…”
Jiang Yu sighed.
“Obviously, Mr. Ji realized that the involvement of public power might lead to a worse outcome, so he decided to destroy the instrument and the core data from the start. I reckon he showed interest in this technology, and he even gained Xu Wei’s admiration and recognition, which was why he got close to those machines. Xu Wei thought he couldn’t escape from his clutches. He not only showed him the instruments but also showed him the core data. That was how he got the chance.”
“That’s right.” Ye Shengge closed her eyes. She recalled how excited and passionate Xu Wei was when he talked about these technologies. If he wanted to share his results with others, Ji Shiting was the most suitable person because Xu Wei would soon forget everything.
Besides, he had knocked himself unconscious that night. He had talked to Xu Wei alone to lower Xu Wei’s guard.
However, he had to bear all the risks after tampering with the instrument.
Because… Xu Wei would definitely erase his memories and let him leave after confirming that he had successfully connected..
