Gu Nianzhi was engrossed in browsing the internet on her phone when she suddenly heard this sentence. She realized that someone had entered.
She put down her phone and blinked at the man in front of her who had suddenly changed his expression. “A bug?”
The KGB’s Ace of the Far East, Peter aka Huo Shaoheng, came to her mind.
The only people who had been to this room were her, Lu Jin, Lu Yuan, He Zhichu, Secretary Lin, and the Ace of the Far East.
She was familiar with and trusted everyone else except for Secretary Lin and the Ace of the Far East.
Secretary Lin was Lu Yuan’s senior secretary, so he must have trusted her. The only person who wasn’t familiar with anyone was the Ace of the Far East.
Gu Nianzhi also remembered that the Ace of the Far East had been sitting next to her bed at that time.
Lu Yuan walked over, and the detector in his hand beeped even louder.
He turned on the signal-blocking system and checked Gu Nianzhi’s pillow.
“There’s something under your pillow,” Lu Yuan said while motioning for Gu Nianzhi to move aside.
Gu Nianzhi didn’t have the strength to lift herself up, so she said with a wry smile, “I’ll try.”
She reached out and dug under her pillow for a while. She touched something the size of a small button.
She pulled it out and handed it to Lu Yuan. “Take a look. Is this it?”
Lu Yuan could tell at a glance that it was a miniature bug. Judging by its design, it seemed to be quite functional.
He took it and pinched it with his hand. The bug was crushed into a pile of scrap metal.
Gu Nianzhi: “…”
But the detector in Lu Yuan’s hand was still beeping.
“Is there more than one bug?” Lu Yuan frowned. “Who’s so crazy?”
Gu Nianzhi was embarrassed. She only saw Lu Yuan dangle the detector above her body and then say,”… It seems to be on your clothes.”
Gu Nianzhi blushed. “You go out first, I’ll look for it.”
Lu Yuan turned on the detector’s shielding and placed it in her room. He turned around and walked out, even closing the door for her with great care.
Once Lu Yuan left, Gu Nianzhi crawled under the blanket and covered herself so tightly that no light could get in.
She then used her hands to feel her clothes.
Her clothes were probably the hospital hospital gown that the nurse had changed her into during the surgery.
It was very large and wide.
She wasn’t feeling well and couldn’t move freely, but she could still move her arms around in a small range.
She used her hands to touch the gown, and finally found a button on the corner of the gown that was also flat and round.
The button, like a piece of metal, was very light and thin. Its color also had a certain color-changing function, and it could blend into the environment, so it was very difficult to be noticed.
Gu Nianzhi only found this bug on her body. She couldn’t find anything else, so she called Lu Yuan to come in.
Lu Yuan’s phone number was already saved in her phone when Gu Nianzhi and her law firm became the legal partners of the Lu Corporation.
The phone she was playing on now was given to her by Lu Jin. She had restored her cloud system, so she hadn’t lost anything from before.
Lu Yuan pushed the door open and entered after receiving the call.
Gu Nianzhi raised the bug. “Look at this. I found it on the corner of my shirt.”
Lu Yuan walked over, took the bug, and crumpled it into a pile of scrap metal again.
He then used a detector to test it before the detector quieted down.
This proved that there were no other bugs.
Gu Nianzhi breathed a sigh of relief and smiled. “If there are more, I really can’t help it.”
She then looked at Lu Yuan thoughtfully and asked curiously, “Director Lu, why did you think of using a detector to detect the eavesdropping device?”
Lu Yuan’s face turned green.
This girl was just like her father; her brain was going in a different direction than the average person’s.
In a situation like this, the first thing a normal person would think of was who had installed the eavesdropping device?
However, the girl asked him why he had thought of using a detector to detect the eavesdropping device..
Fortunately, Lu Yuan had a lot of experience dealing with Lu Jin’s sudden questions, so he was very experienced. Very quickly, he was able to come up with a plausible answer. He said casually, “This is a routine operation. It’s to guard against commercial spies. Our Lu Corporation is a big company, and we do cyber security. We are up against all kinds of hackers and commercial spies at any time. If we’re not careful, we can lose hundreds of thousands, millions, or even tens of millions. We have to learn from our mistakes. No matter how slow we are, we have to learn from our mistakes.”
Gu Nianzhi: “@@@”.
She kept feeling like she was being duped.
But she could also tell that Lu Yuan was deliberately hiding something. This was someone else’s privacy, so she didn’t have to get to the bottom of it.
She laughed. “President Lu is indeed the CEO of a big company. He’s really vigilant.”
Lu Yuan also smiled at her. He changed the topic. “Lawyer Gu, you must know the culprit. Otherwise, why would you not care about who planted the bug?”
Gu Nianzhi :”…”
Talking to smart people was really… laborious.
Gu Nianzhi felt so tired.
“There were only a few people who came here. Even your clothes were bugged, so it shouldn’t have anything to do with Secretary Lin. She didn’t touch you.” Lu Yuan looked at the two metal balls in his hands, and he eliminated them one by one. “These are two bugs made of the same material. They should have been planted by the same person.”
Gu Nianzhi’s eyes darted around. She didn’t dare look Lu Yuan in the eye.
She didn’t know if she should reveal Peter’s true identity.
Lu Yuan only knew that Peter was the deputy consul of the Soviet Union in C City. He didn’t know that he was from the KGB.
But He Zhichu knew.
Once He Zhichu found out about the bug, he would quickly connect it to Peter.
Gu Nianzhi was hesitating when she suddenly remembered that when she had talked to Lu Jin about her childhood yesterday. Did that person had heard everything?
And her special constitution!
She had been experimented on when she was young…
Gu Nianzhi broke out in a cold sweat at the thought.
She didn’t want to attract the KGB’s attention..
Or had the KGB already noticed her?
The timing of the Ace of the Far East’s appearance had been too strange.
At that moment, she even remembered being chased by someone in the Alps in the other world. She had coincidentally been “rescued” by Reinitz.
At that time, she thought she was lucky. Later, she found out that there weren’t so many “coincidences”. In fact, it was all deliberate.
Reinitz’s target was her.
The KGB was also targeting her?
Gu Nianzhi’s expression instantly turned ugly.
“Lawyer Gu, you seem to know.”Lu Yuan looked at her thoughtfully, and he started to analyze. “Young Master He probably doesn’t need to eavesdrop on you. He’s completely devoted to you and doesn’t hold anything back. He wouldn’t use such methods. The only one left is the deputy consul of the Soviet Union.”
“The KGB sent him here, right?”
Gu Nianzhi: “! ! !”
Amazing, President Lu!
He could even guess that!
Lu Yuan smiled when he saw Gu Nianzhi looking at him with her big, expression eyes. “Looks like it’s this deputy consul Peter. There’s no time to lose. We have to do crisis remedy.”
Gu Nianzhi pursed her lips. “President Lu, you really don’t show your true colors. You’re so observant. It’s such a waste of your talent to be a businessman. You should be a judge to uphold justice or be a spy. I guarantee that no one is better than you.”
“Ha ha ha ha, lawyer Gu, you flatter me. I’m just deducing from common sense, plus I’m more attentive than the average person.”Lu Yuan smiled happily. “Don’t worry, leave it to me. I’ll go meet this vice consul Peter.”
How could Gu Nianzhi not be worried?
She hesitated for a moment and said, “No matter what, I still saved his life, yet he repaid me in this way. Let me first ask him why he did it.”
Lu Yuan thought for a moment and nodded. “That’s fine. Do you know how to contact him?”
Gu Nianzhi said, “I can look up the number of the Soviet consulate general online and leave a message for him.”
“That’s the only way. I hope he doesn’t go too far on account of you saving his life.” Lu Yuan found a box and placed two small metal balls inside, then he placed it on Gu Nianzhi’s bed. “This box can block the signal, you can keep it for now.”
After leaving Gu Nianzhi’s room, Lu Yuan went to the kitchen to start cooking.
Lu Jin had already washed and cut all the vegetables and meat. He was preparing onions, ginger, garlic, and other condiments.
Seeing him enter, Lu Jin asked, “What’s wrong? You look like you have something on your mind.”
“I do. You didn’t even know that Nianzhi’s room was bugged?” Lu Yuan blurted out suddenly.
Lu Jin was stunned and became nervous. “Bugged? ! Who did it? !”
He had said a lot of secrets about Nianzhi yesterday. If anyone heard him, the consequences would be unimaginable.
“No, I have to get Nianzhi out of here right now.”Lu Jin wasn’t prepared. He pulled off his apron. “I have to get her out of the country right now!”
“Calm down.” Lu Yuan spoke up to stop him. He walked over to turn on the stove and started to heat up the pot with olive oil. He said, “What’s the point of going abroad? If you hadn’t panicked when Nianzhi was brought over by He Chengjian and fought an energy war with them, we wouldn’t have lost all our energy.”
Lu Jin fidgeted with his hair. “I didn’t want Nianzhi to fall into He Chengjian’s hands. Who knew they wouldn’t let go and fight me for Nianzhi’s coordinates. In the end, both sides suffered heavy losses.”
This was also the reason why Gu Nianzhi hadn’t appeared at the imperial capital in the first place. Instead, she had landed on Snake Island in the Caribbean Sea.
“Yes, our energy is gone now, but their losses are even greater.” Lu Yuan recalled the soul-stirring battle for the magnetic field coordinates when Gu Nianzhi had arrived, and a long-lost sense of pride lit up in his heart. “We can be considered to be taking small losses to win big, one against ten. It’s worth it!”
“You don’t have to praise me. I know what I’m capable of.” Lu Jin walked around the kitchen and said in distress, “But I told Nianzhi about what happened when she was young yesterday, so someone must have heard. What should we do?”
“Don’t worry for now, I think Nianzhi knows what she’s doing.” Lu Yuan put the onions, ginger, and garlic into the pot and started to boil. He also turned on the smoking machine. “You can go out. I’m going to cook.”
Lu Jin left the kitchen worriedly and went to Gu Nianzhi’s room. He said, “Nianzhi, we were careless yesterday.”
Gu Nianzhi snapped, “Those spies are everywhere. What’s the point of being careful?”
“You mean spies?” Lu Jin frowned. “Who? Could it be Peter? I heard that the KGB is everywhere, but why would he do that?”
Although she was reluctant, she still nodded. “I want to ask him to come over and ask him. After all, I saved his life. If he wants to repay kindness with enmity, well, I might as well kill him.”
