890 You Do Not Want Me to Let You Go

 Gu Nianzhi stopped in her tracks at the door, looking at Huo Shaoheng with sparkling eyes. Huo Shaoheng pointed towards the breakfast on the coffee table with his chin and said, "Nianzhi left without having breakfast this morning. I sent this here specially for her."

Chen Lie looked at Huo Shaoheng before looking at Gu Nianzhi and smiling. "Nianzhi, you did not come from school?"

In front of Huo Shaoheng, Gu Nianzhi did not dare to lie so she tried to be as calm as possible and answered, "Nope." She stopped there.

Huo Shaoheng did not expose her and shifted to the side of the sofa. "Come here."

Gu Nianzhi braced herself and walked over and sat beside him. Although she felt uneasy, she could not contain her hunger anymore. Looking at all the food in front of her, she dug in happily.

"Eat slowly. No one is going to snatch the food from you," Huo Shaoheng said as he stood up and turned towards Chen Lie. "Are you free for a short chat?"

Chen Lie nodded and replied, "I happen to have some things to talk to you about as well."

The two men entered Chen Lie's office, and Huo Shaoheng closed the door behind him. "Shoot. What does Mr. Huo want to talk to me about?" Chen Lie sat down on his office chair behind his desk.

Huo Shaoheng asked with a focused expression, "You have done the checks for her?"

"Yeeeessssss..." Chen Lie dragged out his reply lazily. "Neither of you listen to me, anyway... Sigh, she was purely worried that she would be like Gu Tian after she gave birth wasn't she? The minds of little girls..."

Huo Shaoheng was extremely surprised. "What did you say?! What was she worried about?!" It wasn't her health she was worried about?

Chen Lie looked at Huo Shaoheng suspiciously. "You do not even know about that? Then what did you think it was? You were still telling me confidently that she would definitely want to get checked..."

Huo Shaoheng pursed his lips and did not feel like talking to Chen Lie anymore. Chen Lie finally got an opportunity to tease Huo Shaoheng, and therefore, he went on relentlessly. "It has already been so long. How can you still not manage to get Nianzhi to forgive you? She is a good girl; she is soft hearted and easy to please. Just stop being so egoistic and please her more for a bit, will you? Moreover, who would say anything if you were to just put aside your pride and ego for your own wife?" Although Chen Lie had not been in a relationship before, he could reason well when it came to romantic relationships.

Huo Shaoheng glanced at Chen Lie from the corner of his eye. "Where did you learn all that from? Did you listen in on the lessons at the Special Forces Headquarters?"

"Do I even have to do that? I am born smart. Therefore, girls between 16 and 60, I know them well-their needs and wants." Chen Lie stuck his hands out and gestured before saying proudly, "I am all prepared. Now, I'm just short of a girl to prove all my theories!"

Huo Shaoheng shook his head, speechless. He knew that Chen Lie was unreliable when it came to that sort of thing. "Forget it. Let's talk about something serious. Gu Yanran's mother, Gu Jing, was the granddaughter of the head of Japanese army's medical department, Kasahara Shiro." Huo Shaoheng furrowed his brows and looked extremely solemn. "The case of the Gu family has escalated from a simple case of splitting an inheritance to an international political and war crime incident."

When Chen Lie heard the mention of Kasahara Shiro, he fell silent for a moment. "Are you kidding me?! Gu Yanran's maternal great grandfather was Kasahara Shiro?! Gu Yanran is Japanese?!" Chen Lie's naturally round eyes became even more round.

He had not watched the live streaming of Gu Nianzhi's trial. Moreover, since this case had used the reason of requiring "privacy" before and had been held as a private hearing, the media could not manage to get any information. On top of that, Chen Lie had been busy with surgery for the past few days at the army headquarters. He had not had any time to ask around for information yet, and thus did not know about this piece of information from the lawsuit.

Huo Shaoheng nodded. "Our overseas special forces soldiers have already gotten confirmation."

Chen Lie's face fell. It was rare that he looked solemn. He lowered his voice. "Which means that this was related to that biological team in Japan? The one that was notorious during those years?"

"It seems like it, but we do not have enough primary evidence." Huo Shaoheng's attitude was calm and mature. "However, whatever we have seems to point in that direction."

"Those bastards!" Chen Lie slammed his chubby hand onto his desk, and his voice became cold. "And those American scientists who were so damn unethical! They could be so heartless and not pursue war criminals just because they had wanted some data from experiments!"

Those figures and data were obtained from torturing and killing citizens of the Hua Xia Empire... In the opinions of those bastards, citizens of the Hua Xia Empire were not humans; they were planks of wood, bricks, and not even comparable to plants or animals, or even living beings who could think and feel. They saw citizens of the Hua Xia Empire as only slabs of meat on their experimentation tables.

They would torture the poor Hua Xia Empire citizens in any way they wanted, and the crimes they had committed were way worse than those of the soldiers who carried out orders to invade the lands of other countries... However, such horrendous crimes were covered up so easily.

"...Haha. These people are still living to a ripe old age, and some of them are even professors, lecturing in universities." Chen Lie laughed sarcastically. "I wonder if their students know how their 'knowledgeable' professors got their knowledge!"

Huo Shaoheng looked at Chen Lie and replied coldly, "With me around, the people who brought mishaps to our citizens will never have a chance to live to a ripe old age."

"You are the best, brother!" Chen Lie gave a thumbs up. "But for now... Can you give me Gu Yanran to experiment on?"

"Is she still worth anything?" Huo Shaoheng took a set of medical records that Chen Lie had placed on the desk. "It would help you to understand Gu Tian's illness?"

"Of course. It would be best if we can get our hands on her mother's blood samples." Chen Lie rubbed the back of his head emotionally. "Did you manage to find her?"

"Shizuko Kasahara passed away many years ago." Huo Shaoheng looked through Gu Tian's medical records calmly. "Our soldiers who were based in Japan were sent to confirm the information personally in Chiba Ken."

"Chiba Ken?" Chen Lie chuckled. "The main people from that notorious biological team in Japan all originated from Chiba Ken. Kasahara Shiro was merely one of them."

Huo Shaoheng nodded. "I know. Moreover, all the rest of the people who lived in Chiba Ken knew about it." He remembered the old lady the soldiers he sent there had met. She bowed such a low bow to them before she left and said, "I am truly sorry for doing those things to your country. It is really unforgivable."

This old lady must have been one of them as well, hadn't she? She had apologized to them because of that, hadn't she?

To a certain extent, Chiba Ken was the headquarters of that notorious biological team!

"...But Gu Yanran cannot be given to you to experiment on just yet." Huo Shaoheng shook his head. "I still have a feeling that she has not told us everything she knows. Moreover, the person or people behind her will most definitely not want her to continue living. We will use her as bait, and once we manage to find the people or person behind all this, I can give her to you to experiment on."

"Alright, then." Chen Lie pouted. "Then you will have to remember your promise."

Huo Shaoheng stood up. "When have I ever gone back on my word?"

Upon coming out from Chen Lie's office, he saw that Gu Nianzhi had finished all the breakfast, and the bowls were stacked neatly on the coffee table. Huo Shaoheng asked one of the soldiers to clear everything away and looked at Gu Nianzhi happily. "Adult, come back with me."

Gu Nianzhi glared at Huo Shaoheng. "Huo Shao, aren't you mean?" How long does he want to call her "adult" for?!

"Fine, Nianzhi, come back with me." Huo Shaoheng brushed everything away and stopped teasing her.

However, Gu Nianzhi got nervous. She peeked in the direction of the entrance and stammered, "I need to go back to school. I still have my thesis to complete."

Huo Shaoheng smiled and did not make things difficult for her. "Let's go. I will take you back."

"Really?!" Gu Nianzhi became suspicious. "You would be so nice..." to let me go?

Huo Shaoheng bent down and stopped about five millimeters from Gu Nianzhi's face. His eyes looked so deep. "You do not want me to let you go?"
