“Do you know what you’re talking about?”
The old detective’s eyebrows were locked, and his shocked gaze was fixed on Zhu Qing’an: “How do you know about that lab from three hundred years ago?”
That matter had been sealed off, no one should know ah?
“……” Zhu Qing’an felt that the other had misunderstood and hurriedly explained: “I don’t know. I’ve seen a lab in the news with the same name as this one now. So I wanted to ask if it was the same …… After all, if a laboratory can exist for three hundred years, it’s quite impressive.”
The old detective quickly waved his hand and shook his head: “Not the same one! It just bears the same name!”
His actions were too obvious, anyone could see that he wasn’t telling the truth.
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
A lab with a single word “Wing”, was he sure someone would easily bear the same name with it?
Zhu Qing’an felt he was hiding something.
He frowned, he usually wasn’t interested in these scientific news, but he was inexplicably curious about this laboratory.
He continued to ask: “Sir, that laboratory from three hundred years ago, is it still there? What happened?”
The old detective took a look at Zhu Qing’an, who seemed to be a student, honest and simple-looking. He couldn’t bear to keep him curious, so he pretended to be nonchalant: “I’ll tell you a little.”
The old detective called Zhu Qing’an to the car and made a cup of tea for him.
“Three hundred years ago. Human technology exploded, entering the interstellar era, an interstellar empire the size of a dome.”
The old detective’s voice was hoarse and old, he slowly revealed the secret that had been hidden for three hundred years.
“The interstellar empire’s territory is very large and difficult to control. With the power of technology, the empire wanted to create a thing that would help them manage the empire.”
“Likewise, that thing, would also have the power to control and destroy the entire empire.”
“Despite the opposition of countless people, ‘it’ was still created.”
Zhu Qing’an’s eyes widened in curiosity, he never thought that such a thing had appeared in the Empire before.
“What happened afterwards?”
The old man sipped his tea and his expression became grave.
“Later, ‘it’ had an accident, causing panic throughout humanity. The Empire never leaked anything about ‘it’ again.”
“We also don’t know what happened to ‘it’.”
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
Zhu Qing’an got straight to the point: “What exactly is it? What kind of accident did it have?”
Why would it cause humanity to panic?
The old man shrugged his shoulders and shook his head, “I don’t know. The Empire won’t let us know either.”
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
“Very few people know about these things now.” The old detective said: “I see you are young, knowing these things won’t be useful, that’s why I told you. But just think of it as a science fiction story.”
Zhu Qing’an stared at the old detective, remembering those authors who updated their novels then abandoned it in the most critical juncture –
He wanted to send razor blades.
Zhu Qing’an was silent, he felt that the old detective missed something. After a while, he asked: “You said this …… seems to have nothing to do with that laboratory three hundred years ago, ah?”
The old detective: “It is different from that laboratory.”
“What about the people in that …… lab? They made something so dangerous ……,” Zhu Qing’an was curious and couldn’t help but ask again.
The old detective froze and shook his head: “I don’t know. But three hundred years have passed, the experimenters who were present must be gone.”
Indeed, Zhu Qing’an nodded his head.
The old detective was about to say something when someone suddenly came in outside: “There is a situation at the crime scene, quickly come over and see–”
The old detective froze for half a second and hurriedly got up to go over.
The experimenters in this illegal lab were captured. The reason the interrogators also came over to the crime scene was mainly to clean up the instruments inside that would cause harm to humans, as well as to deal with the illegal artificial creatures that were created.
Zhu Qing’an looked at their backs as they left, and couldn’t help but follow them.
He came out to the tent, his eyes glanced at the door with the “wing” sign.
He remembered that his paper man’s name – also had a wing character.
It should be a coincidence.
He withdrew his eyes and reactively tried to take a step inside. But he was stopped by the yellow cordon rising outside the door.
The door inside the cordon was wide open, and inside was a spotless white glossy passageway that led all the way to the glass door of the lab at the end of the doorway.
Zhu Qing’an didn’t fully believe that the laboratory named Wings three hundred years ago didn’t have any connection with this laboratory.
–This lab, what exactly did it do? What purpose did it have in creating illegal artificial creatures ……?
Zhu Qing’an was wondering about the interior of the house that was blocked by the cordon when the cordon was suddenly pulled away by a small police officer.
The small police officer glanced at the curious Zhu Qing’an and reminded him, “The dangerous instruments in the laboratory on the first floor have been cleaned up, you can go in and take a look, but only on the first floor.”
“Thanks.” Zhu Qing’an nodded and stepped in without even thinking about it.
As soon as he entered, he smelled the strong smell of disinfectant water unique labs.
The walls on both sides of the corridor were so white that it was frightening, and the floor was like a mirror, clearly reflecting Zhu Qing’an’s figure.
Zhu Qing’an walked straight to the end and pushed open the only room on the first floor, which was the laboratory.
The laboratory was also very clean, only some complex instruments and a light brain, cabinets, tables were left. But there were no biological experimental apparatus such as culture bin, nutrient solution, etc. that Zhu Qing’an imagined, it was hard to imagine making a living artificial creature here.
There were quite a few police officers standing in the lab, and one of them waved to Zhu Qing’an: “You’re here? The artificial creatures you want to adopt, has been brought out.”
Zhu Qing’an frowned, the police officer only had a small instrument in his hand, and there were no creatures, not even anything that could belong to a creature.
Zhu Qing’an: “Where are the cubs?”
The officer smiled: “Bring your light computer over.”
Zhu Qing’an was puzzled but obediently took out his light computer.
Only to see the officer holding the instrument, he gently places it against his light computer as if he was transmitting something.
Then, the light computer made a soft and sticky sound, like the cry of a small animal.
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
He opened the light computer.
He put all kinds of software icons on the desktop, yet suddenly there was an additional icon ……
Similar to an online pet, but much more realistic than a online pet.
A finger-sized, soft, fluffy little white cat, laid down on the edge of the light screen inside, like a pile of cotton ball.
The little white cat has a small box shaking above its head: [Who moved me so roughly! QAQ]
It seemed that the ouch sound just now, was from this cat.
Zhu Qing’an was a bit shocked: “…… this is the creature I was meant to adopt? ”
The police officer said helplessly, “Yes. We didn’t expect it to be this kind of thing either. But it’s not an online pet, it’s a real life, with its own personality, hobbies, and consciousness. Only in the form of data AI.”
The officer touched Zhu Qing’an’s light computer with the instrument again.
Immediately after that, Zhu Qing’an saw the top of the screen again, and a small white rabbit abruptly dropped down ……
The white rabbit was dropped to the bottom of the screen, then there was a box with a confusing little question mark on top of its head.
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
He poked the rabbit, and the rabbit shook its head.
[Ouch …… who poked me! QWQ b*stard!]
Zhu Qing’an light laughed, these two little things were quite cute.
He had all kinds of cubs in his base, but he had never had such special cubs yet.
The officer was relieved to see that Zhu Qing’an liked them. He pointed to the sofa next to him: “You can rest next to it. We have some business to attend to.”
Zhu Qing’an was completely drawn away by these two little things, so he held the light computer and concentrated on teasing them.
The bunny and the kitten didn’t seem to live together before.
Today was the first time they met.
The kitten was a solitary creature and didn’t like the arrival of the rabbit very much. The cat grinned at the rabbit with a cute fierce look.
The rabbit, on the other hand, was terrified and ran around the screen, hiding behind a software icon every now and then as a defensive shield. On top of it a box emerged.
It was being bullied by the kitten and was very aggravated.
Zhu Qing’an gently lifted the back of the kitten’s neck skin. The kitten was frightened and raised its pink paw paws haphazardly and let out a meowing cry. The cat instantly turned from a small tiger into a cute kitten.
“In the future, you can not bully the little rabbit. You guys are going to live together in the future.”
Zhu Qing’an no longer bothered them so that they could get along quietly.
Zhu Qing’an obediently sat on the sofa, the air was a bit cool, causing him to uncontrollably hug his arms and shrink towards the corner of the sofa.
When his arm touched a sofa position, a small box fell down. He frowned and turned his head to see that there was a concealed compartment on the sofa, which was perhaps too worn and loose because of its age.
His eyes were drawn to the small box that had fallen from the concealed compartment.
Zhu Qing’an picked up the small box, the iron lock was rusted, so the box lid easily opened.
Presented in front of Zhu Qing’an, was a palm-sized, yellowish, old diary.
Zhu Qing’an didn’t dare easily move the things in the crime scene, and wanted to call the police officers to check.
But the air conditioning temperature suddenly lowered, a cold wind blew, the diary was blown open.
A string of handsome and neat handwriting appeared.
[March 3. We created a blond child at the order of the empire. It was born in spring, the day when all the birds returned to fly. We named it “Qin”. It is a metaphor for wings, hoping that it will soar in its own blue sky like a bird. It should be happy.]
Wing, was the same name as the laboratory.
What made Zhu Qing’an more puzzled was …..
A child, why did they need to use such strange words as “create”? Why use a non-human name like “it” to refer to a child?
Moreover, the diary was dated exactly three hundred years ago. Three hundred years ago, there was also a laboratory called Wing.
Zhu Qing’an was sure that this laboratory wasn’t simple.
Instead of creating real physical life, why create a small AI life?
Zhu Qing’an was tempted to turn the page to see what would happen later.
–This child, did it grow up in the end? Was it …… happy?
What happened to the parents …… who created it?
But Zhu Qing’an didn’t dare to turn the book, he was afraid to touch it, it had existed for three hundred years, if he touched it, it might instantly turn into a puddle of ash.
Zhu Qing’an could only call the officers to come.
But hadn’t called out, when a group of panicked people rushed down from the second floor, they raised their voices and shouted: “The second floor laboratory is on fire! It’s on fire! Run!!!”
Zhu Qing’an froze, and his first reaction was to run outside with his diary in his arms.
But when he took the first step, the fire had already burned through the second floor – the heavy, hard second floor’s floor, with all the furniture on the second floor, rapidly fell down! The position of Zhu Qing’an’s head happened to be the place where the whole floor sank the fastest, because there was a huge hard metal lab cabinet on the second floor’s floor! It was filled with glass instruments with hot raging flames!
If hit by this cabinet and the floor, no one would even be able to find any bone scraps.
However, the cabinet had already penetrated the floor, which was red with fire, and was about to hit Zhu Qing’an.
Zhu Qing’an didn’t notice that he was in danger.
But when his hand touched the screen of the light computer, it unexpectedly lit up.
The light screen showed the game interface of “False Love”.
[Welcome back to False Love!]
