Forced to Date a Big Shot - Chapter 590
Xue Xi did not reply immediately and asked, “Why are you looking for them?”
Zheng Zhi replied strictly, “I want to recruit him into the special department.”
Xue Xi was a little confused. “…Mhm?”
Zheng Zhi said, “A talent like him must be specially recruited. The special department will welcome him. If everyone in the special department is as useless as you, won’t the entire special department be useless?”
The corners of Xue Xi’s lips twitched. Before she could speak, Zheng Zhi said, “Forget it. Send me X’s contact details. I’ll contact him personally. I’m afraid you won’t be able to get him in!”
Xue Xi: “…Oh.”
Zheng Zhi said, “Send it to me immediately. I’m hanging up.”
Before he hung up, Xue Xi said, “Wait a moment.”
Zheng Zhi was stunned. “What?”
Xue Xi replied calmly, “I’m not free tonight.”
After saying that, she hung up.
He wanted her to help the internet department tonight?
Wouldn’t reading books be a better thing to do if she had the time? She was not a masochist. She joined the special department only to suppress Gu Yunqing. Now that Gu Yunqing could no longer be a tyrant, why should she suffer?
She hated fighting and killing the most, and she did not like solving cases. It was more fun to read, study, and study hard.
If Zheng Zhi wanted her to withdraw from the special department, so be it.
As Xue Xi thought this, she sat down and opened her book. This time, the book she was reading was “Integrated Circuit.”
Special Police Department.
Zheng Zhi was in Jing Fei’s office. He had just snatched Xue Xi’s number from Jing Fei. When he heard the beeping sound on the phone, he was stunned.
He looked at Jing Fei in disbelief and said, “Sh-she actually dared to hang up on me?”
Jing Fei leaned on the chair. “Even Boss has to be careful when he calls her. What’s so strange about her hanging up on you?”
Zheng Zhi was furious. “I’m not the boss and I won’t spoil her! Moreover, she said that she’s not free tonight and won’t come to work. This person is simply lawless! No, such a person must be expelled from the special department! If you don’t dare to report, I’ll do it!”
After saying that, Zheng Zhi walked toward the door. Jing Fei hurriedly rushed over and put his arm around his shoulders. “Son, Sister Xi is busy at university. Our special department has always been flexible in our work. It’s understandable that Sister Xi is busy!”
Zheng Zhi sneered. “What’s there to be busy with when you’re a freshman? Tell me, is she really busy? Fine, I want to see what she’s busy with!”
In the dormitory.
After reading for a while, Xue Xi suddenly received a WeChat call from Director Liu. When she was in the office today, she had already added a few people on WeChat to make it easier for her to keep in contact.
When she picked up the call, Director Liu said, “Sister Xi, did you do something wrong? Why is the police looking for me? They’re asking me who X is.”
Xue Xi: “…Which police department?”
Director Liu: “The one at Xichenggen!”
What police department? It was clearly the special department.
Xue Xi silently sighed. Just as she was about to speak, Director Liu said, “Sister Xi, I already said that I don’t know. They asked me to find him. Erm, don’t worry. Even if they gave me the Ten Greatest Punishment of the Qing Dynasty, I won’t tell anyone.”
Xue Xi: “…No torture.”
“D*mn it all, I’ll show you my loyalty.”
Xue Xi paused and replied, “I’ll handle this matter. Thank you.”
Director Liu said, “It’s fine, it’s fine. You just need to know that my heart is always with you. If Old Feng or Old Chen were to encounter such a situation, they definitely won’t stand with you! You have to know that I treat you the best and cherish you the most!”
Xue Xi: “…”
After hanging up, Xue Xi thought about it and picked up her phone. She registered an email address and sent it to Zheng Zhi as X’s contact number.
Because she still had to invade the SSS-level files, she could not expose her identity for the time being.
However, if she did not give Zheng Zhi a way to contact X, he would probably come looking for trouble with Director Liu. Hence, he could just contact X like this.
Just as she sent the email, she received a reply from Zheng Zhi: “Ha, I thought you were busy and forgot about this matter!”
Unfortunately, Xue Xi, who had low EQ, could not sense his sarcastic tone. Thus, she slowly replied: “I forgot. I just remembered.”
Zheng Zhi: “How can you forget such a small matter? What a waste!”
After replying, Xue Xi was just about to read the book again when her mailbox rang.
Xue Xi took a look and realized that it was an email from Zheng Zhi.
“To Mr. X:
I have already figured out your secret. As an esper, I sincerely invite you to join our police department to eliminate evil and serve the people. Hoping to get a reply.
Your Supporter: Zheng Zhi.”
Xue Xi: “…”
She looked at his message to her and then at the email. She felt that it was ironic.
She replied: “Not interested.”
Just as she replied, the other party sent another email:
“Mr. X, I know that you haven’t joined any other organization and are doing things alone. Don’t you want a partner to work with you?”
Xue Xi: “Do you know anything about hacking?”
Zheng Zhi: “No.”
Xue Xi then looked at the message Zheng Zhi had sent her and replied: “Why should a useless person like you act with me?”
A prideful person like Zheng Zhi would definitely scold her and blacklist her when he saw this reply, right? He would probably not bother her in the future.
At this thought, Xue Xi started reading again.
After she’d read about two pages, there was another ding, indicating that she had a new email.
Xue Xi was stunned. When she opened it, she realized that Zheng Zhi had replied to her with a very long message:
“Mr. X, I don’t know much about hackers, but I know about politics. We all have our own strengths, and that’s why we can help China rise.
I think that everyone has a dream of being a hero and a patriot. Are you really willing to be a hidden and useless hacker?
If you have such abilities, why can’t you join us?
I want to build an esper inspection system. Through analyzing massive data, we can easily find espers hidden among ordinary people.
Do you know? In this world, there are thousands of espers. Although their numbers are small, their destructive power is strong. A few years ago, a series of murders were perpetrated by an esper. Up until now, this person has not been arrested. Esper-related crimes have been increasing in recent years.
You are also raised by your parents. Do you have the heart to see your wife and children taken from you?
Mr. X, I sincerely hope that you can join us and reduce the number of esper-related crimes.
Of course, for a genius like you, I can apply for a high-level position where you will not be controlled by others. How about it?”
Reduce esper-related crimes…
Xue Xi fell silent.
This Little Square was actually very annoying. She originally thought that he was useless, but from his words, she could tell that this person was at least patriotic.
Moreover, an esper like Yu Da who was wandering outside had been at a loss for what to do. If Little Square could find them in time and recruit them into the special department before they made a mistake, would there be fewer wrongdoings in this world?
Xue Xi was stunned when she saw these words. She replied: “What level?”
