684 I Don’t Believe It, Anyway

 When Reinitz arrived at the small bar, Gu Nianzhi had just fallen asleep and didn't want to get up. She rolled around in bed tangled with the blankets and was calculating how long it would take for Professor He to see her private message and find a way to avenge her. She believed that with He Zhichu's authority and ability, he would be more suitable to deal with German government agencies than Brother Xiong or Huo Shao. Gu Nianzhi didn't want her incident to cause a diplomatic dispute between Germany and the Hua Xia Empire, so it was the best for an unidentified foreigner like He Zhichu to help her out.

In the deepest recesses of her heart, she believed she may not be able to leave this place alive... She had turned the German Federal Intelligence Service upside down. Would the group of people succeeding the previous Gestapo let her go? It didn't take a genius to figure that out. Also, she didn't have time to make proper preparations, and in the end, she had put herself in a vulnerable position in order to maximize the benefits. She didn't use the last precious bit of time to erase all traces of logging in but instead chose to "devour" all the emails.

The clever use of the grain and chessboard theory allowed her to forward exponentially 64 times in the last few seconds it took for power to be cut, resulting in the enemy not being able to track all the emails for tens of billions of years. The emails needed to be tracked individually, and time was linear. However, she had forwarded a myriad of emails at the same time with the parallel usage of time. These were essentially two different concepts. Even if the Germans one day learned that the files had fallen into the hands of the Hua Xia Empire, it would only be their own conjecture because they would never have any concrete evidence to prove this. Espionage activity between countries was all just tacit plays, wasn't it?

Gu Nianzhi closed her eyes and lay on the bed as she tried to stop herself from thinking about the consequences of being found out. She kept using the illusion that she would go home in order to numb herself. In her mind, she kept imagining being picked up by He Zhichu and returning home with him. It was a beautiful future of having a huge meal with Ma Qiqi.

After bypassing the blocked keywords these past few days, she had already seen the results of the Li Haiqing case. Due to Seth's sudden death, the Li Haiqing case had already concluded. The other female charged, Niya, was sentenced to 50 years without parole for assisting murder and assisting in sexual assault. Under He Zhichu's incredible pressure, the German courts had already appointed another judge to conduct the trials for the civil case. The Roslau local government and police, as well as Seth's mother, Ramona, faced the astronomical compensation of one billion Euros. They of course didn't accept it and were in the process of appealing. Gu Nianzhi didn't care about what happened afterwards. She was confident that Professor He would take good care of this case.

Also, Huo Shao was in Cuba but hadn't called her all this time! Hmph! She would never speak to him again, and he would know how angry she was. No matter how he tried to appease her, she would ignore him and refuse to see him... If he came back and found out he would never see her again, would he be very angry or very sad? Unfortunately, she would have no way of knowing. Lost in her delusions, Gu Nianzhi was so touched by her imagination, she almost cried. Suddenly, someone knocked on the door, and the mood was dispelled. How annoying. Gu Nianzhi pouted unhappily and closed her eyes to pretend to be quietly asleep. She refused to answer.

Reinitz knocked on the door some more and heard only silence as if no one was inside. He panicked and took out a special key to insert into the lock. It clicked open.

Gu Nianzhi was speechless. What the hell?! She had deadbolted the lock. How did it get opened from the outside?! Where was the trust between people?! Gu Nianzhi turned away angrily and was about to accuse the bar owner of blatantly violating her privacy when Reinitz's sculpturally beautiful face looked down at her haughtily. She was familiar with how he looked, like he was no longer interested in life and that all the world's pleasures had nothing to do with him. Gu Nianzhi's heart sank and her palms grew sweaty. Crap, how it could it be Reinitz?! He came too fast...

He really was the destroyer of dreams. Gu Nianzhi immediately recalled what Reinitz had told her. She remembered him saying he was a rather successful software engineer and had started a few small companies that were later acquired... Now it looked like it those were just Reinitz's humble excuses. His software programming abilities were probably not just "rather successful." There was only one reason why Reinitz suddenly appeared after all these days. Gu Nianzhi wasn't narcissistic enough to believe she was a Mary Sue with a halo bright enough to illuminate the world and conquer successful men one after another... Reinitz had probably come to see her because her incident had come to light. What the hell!? This was exposed all too quickly... Gu Nianzhi wiped the sweat on her palms against the sheets then replied calmly, "Reintiz, can you go out for a second? I need to get up and change. I'll wash up, too."

Reinitz didn't move and stood there before her bed with his arms crossed. His dazzling blue eyes stared at her unblinkingly and seemed to want to peer into her true feelings behind the calm expression. Gu Nianzhi was uncomfortable with his staring and forced herself to repeat, "Reinitz, please go outside. I need to get up and change."

Reinitz finally grunted but didn't turn around. He sat on a single seater sofa against the wall across from her bed and crossed his legs. Lighting a cigarette in his hand, he replied calmly, "Change, then."

Gu Nianzhi was speechless. Shameless! She was stone faced as she crawled out of bed wrapped in a thin blanket. Taking the clothes from the side of the bed, she headed to the bathroom. Purposely taking a long time inside, she waited for herself to calm down before opening the door and coming out. "Tell me, what are you going to do with me?"

Reinitz looked at her uneasily and finally spoke, "When did you discover it?" He was asking her when she discovered the bar's owner and bartender were Als' personnel.

Gu Nianzhi laughed quietly. "You want to know? Actually, I first discovered there was something wrong with you, then naturally came to the conclusion about the bar owner and bartender."

The answer took Reinitz by surprise once again. He squinted at Gu Nianzhi's face. So, beautiful men fell for her at first sight. Although she appeared somewhat haggard, she looked even more delicately beautiful. This was even more irresistible than the lively beauty he saw when he first met her. "There was something wrong with me? What?" Renitz questioned her back calmly, his right hand gently folded on his left wrist. Only he would know how fast his heart was beating.

"It's very simple." Gu Nianzhi cocked her head. "In the beginning, you always ate my food first to ease my concerns and allow me to eat." That was back at Mother Hanna's cabin. Reintiz stiffened. That early? But she hadn't shown any signs of noticing it and had even fooled him...

"...This type of habit is not typical for normal people. It can't be considered as thoughtful. This is clearly a habit of foreign spies." Gu Nianzhi stated calmly and gestured, "Someone who knows about this habit and uses it to dispel another's concern can only be a spy."

"Then what about you? How did you find out? Could you be a spy, too?" Reintiz calmed down and began questioning Gu Nianzhi.

She shrugged and replied nonchalantly, "I want to be one, but they're not hiring... But I don't believe that you people didn't know about my identity or who I was raised by." Since there was already a mole within the Special Operations Forces, these were certainly no longer considered secrets.

Reinitz glanced at her quietly and softly said, "That's it? You may be too rash."

"Of course it wasn't just that." Gu Nianzhi counted on her fingers as she spoke. "Also, you said you were a software engineer, but your marksmanship was too sharp that night you helped us escape. I've seen too many talented marksman in this world, but within all those incredible shooters there is only one person better than you. How could someone like that be merely a software engineer? You believe it? I don't believe it, anyway."

Reinitz stared at her calmly, and his blue eyes gradually grew addicted to the sight. After some time, he finally nodded. "So that's the case. Looks like you already planned this long before."

"I can say the same about you." Gu Nianzhi smiled politely. "Haven't you been plotting this all along? Tell me, how long has this long fishing pole been set up for? How many big fish have you caught?"

Watching Gu Nianzhi refuse to admit defeat even now and not missing a beat with her banter, Reinitz suddenly felt a deep envy towards Huo Shaoheng. Why did he deserve to receive the devoted love and support of this genius girl... Why?!
