Country A was purposely provoking them that day, but they could not take out any evidence. The other party did not launch the missiles into their territorial waters and this matter can only be left alone just like that.
“They’re intending to forget it just like that?”
Zi Yi furrowed her eyebrows with displeasure. “Don’t tell me Father and Third Uncle can swallow this anger?”
“They can’t make rash movements at this time.”
Country A was doing a military exercise and the firepower they displayed was the most advanced, technologically, worldwide. If they moved on their end, Country A would have an excuse to counterattack.
The consequences were unimaginable and the country had many things to take into consideration.
Zi Yi snorted and did not say anything else. After they returned, both of them accompanied Mrs. Lu for dinner. After dinner, Zi Yi went out to have a walk with Mrs. Lu in the backyard.
Mrs. Lu was a little out of sorts these two days. A while after she started strolling with Zi Yi, she did not manage to hold back her thoughts and asked Zi Yi, “I wonder what’s the situation at your Father’s side? I saw that the situation between the two countries is a little tense lately. Will there be a fight?”
“It won’t happen.” Zi Yi analyzed the situation for her. “Even though our Country’s comprehensive strength is weaker than Country A, we can’t be underestimated in terms of our nuclear weapons. At most, they would do some dirty actions to disgust us but they would not dare to really take any action.”
After Mrs. Lu heard Zi Yi’s analysis, she was finally a little at ease. However, she still said, “I can still get to know about the situation on your Father’s side through the news, but there isn’t any news on Yunxiao’s end since the very moment he left.”
Zi Yi held Mrs. Lu’s arm and said, “Mom, don’t worry. Yunxiao does keep in contact with Ah Jing and I can also get into contact with the invisible robots that are protecting him. He’s currently hiding and he’ll be fine.”
“I’m glad that he’s not in danger.”
Zi Yi knew that just one or two words from her could not possibly remove all of Mrs. Lu’s worries and so, she changed the topic and talked about interesting things that happened in the lab.
When Mrs. Lu heard that Zi Yi taught the engineers a lesson, she laughed out loud.
After they finished their stroll, Mrs. Lu got Zi Yi to go back and take a rest. “You’ve been busy for this period of time, you should go to bed early tonight.”
Zi Yi had some things to do and after she said good night to Mrs. Lu, she went up to the second floor. At the same time, she had pulled Lu Jingye to follow her.
“Let’s go and check up on what Father and Third Uncle are doing.”
After walking into the study room, Zi Yi took out the virtual screen and quickly connected to the control room of the warship Second Master Lu and Third Master Lu were on.
At this moment, Third Master Lu was currently stomping his feet. “You won’t let me do this or that, if this continues, we’ll become soft persimmons and be easily kneaded like dough by them!”
Several of the subordinates seated around him wisely chose to be invisible.
Second Master Lu was seated on a chair and he asked with a stern expression, “How do you plan to retaliate? Fight with them openly? Or do you want to intercept their missiles?”
Country A’s military exercise was the focus worldwide and as long as they did not launch missiles into their territory, it would only be a military exercise. Whoever takes an action would be regarded as purposely sabotaging their display.
Third Master Lu was so angry that he kicked the table in the conference room, causing the heavy table to shift half a meter to the side. The teacup rocked left and right, looking as though it was about to tip over when Second Master Lu quickly grabbed it.
Second Master Lu lectured him. “You better keep hold of your temper!”
“The f*ck should I…”
“Father, Third Uncle, good evening~”
The sudden greeting caused everyone to subconsciously look at the screen.
When he saw Zi Yi and Lu Jingye reflected on the screen, Third Master Lu’s eyes brightened up and he asked without a second thought, “Little Zi, do you have any way to help us vent this anger? I can’t take it anymore!”
Second Master Lu did not expect Third Master Lu to ask this question in front of everyone and he hastily warned him in a serious tone. “Third Brother, stop with the nonsense.”
Third Master Lu also finally reacted and realized that it was not suitable to ask this question in front of everyone and he tried laughing it off. “Aren’t I just turning to any doctor in a desperate situation?”
Following that, he tried asking Lu Jingye, “Jingye, do you have any ideas for us to extinguish Country A’s arrogance?”
Second Master Lu said sternly, “Third Brother. That’s enough. We’ll take care of this matter ourselves.”
Following that, he said to the rest, “Go down and get ready. As long as Country A doesn’t enter our territorial waters, no one is allowed to do anything else.”
The group of people stood up and left the room.
The moment they closed the door, Zi Yi looked at the two men’s ugly expressions and said, “Father, Third Uncle. Actually, it’s easy to vent this anger without anyone knowing.”
Third Master Lu was excited after hearing that. “Really? What should we do?”
However, Second Master Lu furrowed his eyebrows. “Little Zi, you don’t have to intervene in this matter.”
Third Master Lu looked at Second Master Lu and wanted to say something. However, he was stopped by Second Master Lu’s sharp gaze.
Third Master Lu could only sit down while fuming in anger. “Alright, alright. We’ll just continue enduring this. After all, it’s not the first or second time we have submitted to such humiliation.”
Second Master Lu’s frown tightened and his expression looked even more stern.
He clenched his fists and said, “Our country is developing at a rapid pace and there will be a day when we surpass Country A, and have everyone respect us.”
Third Master Lu sneered. “Second Brother, do you believe in what you just said? When we are desperately developing our missiles, perhaps Country A might have already built spaceships and headed to another planet to develop civilization there. At that time, they can simply blow up Earth whenever they feel like it.”
“What nonsense are you talking about?!”
“Isn’t that the truth?”
Seeing that the two brothers were about to get into an argument, Zi Yi tugged Lu Jingye’s sleeve.
Lu Jingye called out to the two men, “Father, Third Uncle.”
He successfully stopped the impending quarrel.
“I feel that we can let Little Zi have a try.”
He had faith that his wife was able to do it.
Second Master Lu furrowed his eyebrows. “The whole world is paying attention to Country A’s military exercise. If the other party were to discover anything, it would be very troublesome for Little Zi.”
“They won’t discover anything.” Zi Yi said, “I’ll use other identities to take action. Father and Third Uncle only have to act as though you don’t know anything.”
“No.” Second Master Lu was still worried. “The news of you helping Third Brother to deal with the pirates got out and if you were to take action again this time, even if you used other identities, they would definitely be suspicious. We can’t take the risk.”
“What Father said is reasonable.”
Lu Jingye held Zi Yi’s hand and stopped her from talking. “Since that’s the case, we’ll go and rest up first.”
Having said that, he motioned for Zi Yi to turn off the virtual screen.
Zi Yi looked at him with a frown. “Are we really not going to help Father and Third Uncle? Country A is so arrogant and even in my opinion, they’re so infuriating.”
“Who says we won’t be helping?” Lu Jingye squeezed her hand and released it. “Country A’s military exercise lasts for three days and there are still five hours before it ends. Their secret weapon will definitely be displayed at the very last minute. It’s not too late for us to do anything at that time… Right now, you can go and sleep for four hours first.”
Following that, he held her hand and they headed downstairs.
“What about you?”
“I’ll wake you up later.”
