You Need To Wait for an Opportunity
This was the first time he had heard of this. Ye Wenxuan couldn’t help but sit up straight. His fingers twitched slightly on the armrest, but he didn’t speak.
“This site publishes some of the results from the SP Institute from time to time. Some of these are even priced and sold to site visitors after some heavy selection.” Adonis explained: “These are all products that can improve human qualities, and some of them are truly very effective, but at the same time, they have huge side effects.”
Like the super warrior reagent? Ye Wenxuan thought.
“The people who can browse the site are handpicked by the SP Institute.” Adonis looked at him: “I don’t know who they actually are, but the former colleague revealed that terrorist groups who have been creating chaos across the world recently are likely to be on the list.”
Ye Wenxuan muttered: “This is really some bad news.”
But then he changed the subject: “I remember you said at the beginning that when you had contacted a friend in the United States, you ended up being chased down. So, this colleague, is he reliable?”
Adonis paused for a moment, and finally sighed: “I don’t know…”
Ye Wenxuan added: “Does he know that you are in China?”
Adonis bowed his head: “He might…might know now…”
Ye Wenxuan: “What position does he have in the United States?”
Adonis did not keep it a secret, telling him a name.
This name was familiar. Ye Wenxuan had often seen this senior official on the news channel.
Ye Wenxuan: “Then when you were in England, who was the person you were in contact with?”
Adonis told him several more people and then said: “About these people, I have already confessed to your officials and there is a record of it. Ye, this matter, I was too impulsive.”
Ye Wenxuan looked straight at the person across from him: “Adonis, when you first found me, was it really because you had nowhere else to go?”
“I know what you’re suspicious of.” Adonis replied: “I am willing to accept your interrogation.”
Ye Wenxuan glanced at the monitoring bracelet on his wrist and faintly said: “I hope that you did not lie to me this time.”
He got up from the sofa and snuffed out the cigarette on the table: “Come, I’ll take you to ‘turn yourself in.’”
Adonis did not try to defend himself, giving a nod.
It was late at night but there were still plainclothes on duty next door. Ye Wenxuan and Adonis walked out into the corridor then stopped, and the surrounding police officers were immediately on alert.
With a click, a door next to them opened.
Ye Wenxuan did not wait for the other side to ask. He directly said: “Officer, I’m bringing him here for him to turn himself in.”
Officer: “…” What’s going on?
Watching Adonis get handcuffed, Ye Wenxuan stood silently on the side. When the military car quietly stopped downstairs, Adonis turned and said to him: “Help me take care of Kathy.”
Ye Wenxuan: “I will.”
Adonis: “Thank you very much.”
The black car slowly drove out of the neighborhood. Ye Wenxuan stood downstairs for a bit, while the police officer next to him looked depressed.
“What happened?” He casually asked.
Officer: “Nothing…just a little emotional, truly worthy of being a superhuman.”
Ye Wenxuan: “En?”
The young officer shook his head: “My comrades and I were just squatting next door and the surveillance on Adonis’s bracelet showed that he was always in the room.”
“The monitoring signal was only unusual for a couple seconds and went by in a blink of an eye. When I looked at it again, it was still in that position, like it hadn’t moved at all.”
Ye Wenxuan pondered: “Hm…perhaps when in a state of uncertainty, his supersonic speed could reach an even more extreme state?”
“Superhumans ah.” The officer muttered: “Having that kind of power, it’s really a little scary.”
Ye Wenxuan tightened his lips. That police officer came back to his senses and said awkwardly: “Mr. Ye, I wasn’t talking about you…”
Ye Wenxuan: “It’s all right.”
He waved his hand: “It’s late and Adonis has already left. You all can hurry back to rest.”
The police officer rubbed his head and said a little sheepishly: “We still have to go on duty, Mr. Ye why don’t you go back to rest.”
Ye Wenxuan wasn’t too wordy with them and went back into the apartment.
Kathy was sitting on the couch when he got back.
Kathy was not wearing her mask. Under the dim light, her scars showed a faint sense of horror.
The young man ignored this. He walked over and sat next to her, rubbing her head: “You saw?”
Kathy nodded, and then rubbed her head slightly on his palm.
Ye Wenxuan whispered: “We took your brother away, do you hate me?”
The little girl looked up at him, her eyes bright and clear.
She said quietly: “No.”
Kathy was now able to finish a whole sentence smoothly. Even though her voice was hoarse, communication was no longer a problem.
“The brothers are not bad people.” Kathy smiled and said earnestly: “Brother Adonis will be alright.”
Ye Wenxuan sighed: “You saw it again.”
He leaned over and picked up the little girl, bringing her all the way back to the bedroom and gently placing her on the bed: “Little princess, it’s already dark. If you don’t sleep you’ll get up late tomorrow and be scolded by the teacher oh.”
Kathy obediently lay back in bed and pulled on his sleeve: “Brother Ye.”
Ye Wenxuan: “Hm?”
Kathy: “Don’t be mad at brother Adonis.”
She said quietly: “He’s a good man.”
Ye Wenxuan raised his hand and rubbed her hair: “Sleep. Good night.”
Returning to his room, the tablet was still on. Ye Wenxuan flipped up the screen, seeing an extremely handsome sleeping face.
The other person should have been lying in bed waiting for him and then accidentally fell asleep.
Ye Wenxuan looked at the faint green bags under his eyes, giving off a feeling of tiredness. Thinking that Xing Yuan during this time had been working overtime desperately, he seemed to have really tired himself out.
In fact…he didn’t need to work so desperately.
His finger tapped on the screen, rubbing over the brows as if he could smooth out the creases there.
Ye Wenxuan watched the screen for a while, all the way until the tablet was running out of power. Then he turned off the video and got into bed to sleep.
The irritation and anger from Adonis’s sudden action was calmed slightly by Xing Yuan’s sleeping face.
At least he didn’t have a sleepless night.
Over the next few days, life was normal and did not have the great upheavals that Ye Wenxuan had imagined.
For the B city bombing case, the next day the Special Affairs Department and Ministry of Public Security had investigated that this time the perpetrators were several foreigners. After some verification, they confirmed that they were members of a certain terrorist organization.
Ye Wenxuan noted that it was indeed a sunny day. After the end of the case, there were over ten days without any information of terrorist activities.
Some of the previous guesses of the counterterrorism operations group may not be wrong.
By late April, three more terrorist attacks had occurred in Europe and Southeast Asia. Following that, the number of countries participating in the international counterterrorism team increased by three members.
The rise in terrorist activity had enshrouded much of the world. Fears were heightened, and many countries who had not been attacked were worried, beginning to apply to join the international counterterrorism team.
During this period, the ministry of public security arrested dozens of foreigners in China. They were not terrorists but were deported on suspicion of espionage.
Ye Wenxuan didn’t know whether or not these were related to Adonis’s information, but he kept on feeling a sort of uneasiness, as if there were an invisible sword of Damocles hanging above his head, reminding him that the danger was not over.
Adonis had not come back in over a month. Ye Wenxuan had asked Zheng Xingguo and learned that Adonis was being held by the ministry in a certain confinement room.
“We reevaluated his risk and decided that he was no longer fit to live with ordinary people. We’re going to confine him for a bit, and then the rest depends on his performance.” Zheng Xingguo told him over the phone: “The information he gave us about the SP Institute may be true.”
Ye Wenxuan’s heart jumped: “Why do you say this?”
Zheng Xingguo: “A few hackers on our side have found that website.”
“You’re a superhuman, and probably one of the targets that the SP institute wants to capture, so you have a certain right to know. However, this is confidential after all, so I am not in a position to disclose too much information.” He lowered his voice: “We haven’t been able to get the code yet, and the hackers have not made too much progress. This matter has already been suppressed by Minister Luo. At this time, the logistics of all aspects of the international counterterrorism team are not perfect, and the hearts of the people are scattered. It is not suitable for us to talk openly about matters dealing with the SP Institute.”
Ye Wenxuan: “Deputy captain, can I not join this international counterterrorism team?”
Zheng Xingguo: “Wait for an opportunity.”
Hearing that there was a possibility, Ye Wenxuan became excited. He held the phone tightly and said seriously: “I understand.”
Because Adonis had gotten himself into a solitary confinement room and Kathy’s ability was not destructive, Ye Wenxuan did not have to stay in that apartment every day. He finally had some free time of his own.
He would sometimes run to Xing Yuan’s company. This company did not have the grandeur of the original Xing group. The office location was in a well-known commercial building in the third ring, occupying two floors of space in the building. The decoration was comfortable and open, which was quite nice.
Some of the employees in Xing Yuan’s company were old faces. These were all elites of the former Xing group, some of whom had provided a lot of information for the police. They could be considered some of the many pieces Xing Yuan had buried in the Xing home.
Now that the Xing group had fallen, some people have rejoined Xing Yuan’s efforts and taken over new roles.
Ye Wenxuan saw Ruan Yushan who he had met in England. This lady was still in the assistant position. There was no expression on her face but when she saw him she gave him a slight smile. Evidently her impression of Ye Wenxuan was quite good.
In addition, there were two bodyguards who had been through the attack on Westminster University. Ye Wenxuan could actually remember these two, one was Li Fei, the other Liang Haoying.
Right now the two were still Xing Yuan’s bodyguards. But it was no longer as dangerous as a few years ago, so Xing Yuan did not always let them follow him around.
“They are all men that I got avoiding Xing Jianming’s eyes. Now that the family’s case is over, of course these people are still going to follow me.” Xing Yuan later explained to him.
When he said this, Ye Wenxuan pointed at the lady who had just walked past outside: “Why do I feel like that person is very familiar. Is that not the sister who escaped with us back in England?” He looked at Xing Yuan suspiciously: “At that time you even said that she was a scorpion, what’s her name, something xue?”
“Zhang Qingxue.” Xing Yuan said: “Commercial spy. Previously she was working with my brother and wanted to bring me down, but when she saw that it was going bad she pulled out and finally turned around and bit him.”
Ye Wenxuan: “…”
Xing Yuan: “Earlier I found someone to contact her to deal with Xing Jianming.”
Ye Wenxuan wiped his face: “Has the most basic trust between people been eaten by dogs?”
Xing Yuan smiled: “Today you aren’t going back to that apartment?”
Ye Wenxuan closed the office door and slowly strolled over to his side. He leaned over to kiss him on the lips: “Not inviting me to go see your luxury villa?”
“The door of the villa is always open for you, and so is the master bedroom.” Xing Yuan held the back of his neck with one hand, not letting him stand back up: “But it’s not ‘my luxury villa’. It’s ‘our home.’”
Ye Wenxuan’s forehead leaned against his and he smiled: “En, our home.”
The atmosphere was perfect but there was a knock on the door outside. The two men helplessly separated and Ye Wenxuan gently coughed, straightening up to open the door.
Outside was a staff member who had seen in S city before. The man greeted him: “Hello sister in law! Wishing sister in law good fortune!” Then he rushed into the office: “Boss! This project can’t be done ah, it’s a big trap…”
Ye Wenxuan was still standing at the door: “…” Sister in law???
So were all of the people at Xing Yuan’s company already aware of their relationship?
He thought of this problem all afternoon.
Since then, Ye Wenxuan officially bid farewell to the small apartment the Special Affairs Department provided to him and moved into a villa in the suburbs of B city, beginning a shameless life with Xing Yuan.
## hello sister in law wishing sister in law good fortune ##
Employee A [bows]: “Hello sister in law! Wishing sister in law good fortune! Has sister in law eaten yet!”
Ye Wenxuan: “???”
Xing Yuan nodded: “Good awareness, today’s wages are doubled.”
Since then, every time Ye Wenxuan went to visit Xing Yuan, there would be a group of elite white-collar workers following behind him and bowing with a “hello sister in law wishing sister in law good fortune”.
Onlookers: “Did you hear? That XX company in our building is involved in the underworld. When their boss enters the door, everyone has to bow to greet him.”
The crowd eating melons: “I heard it’s a debt collection company…”
Ye Wenxuan: “…”
