The blond boy appeared in all the screens of the Empire that were activated.
He was dressed in the Empire’s black uniform, tall and slender, his azure eyes curved into a pair of crescent moons, his features too perfect to be human.
The Imperials had already received the news, and at 12 noon, the World Administrator AI came online. The imperial army, government, and even public administration facilities, all began to be controlled by this AI at that time.
Zhu Qing’an stood on a high windowsill, hanging his head down, and saw the street market outside the window with a lot of traffic.
The huge advertising screens hovering in the mid-air of the city reflected the boy’s face. People were cheering and jumping for joy.
Zhu Qing’an had never seen such Qin Hengyi.
The teenager was young, gentle, smile full of life, like a vigorous upward growth of a tree.
And not like the look he saw when he first opened the game. The cold, gloomy, dark red eyes with a hint of cool air, gaze like a cold knife, radiating a do-not-enter aura.
Zhu Qing’an wagged his tail and gave a gentle meow to his lover in the distant screen.
If he could, Zhu Qing’an would rather keep his lover like this forever, smiling, full of hope for the world, without gloom and distress.
Even if he needed to pay a high price during this period.
Zhu Qing’an jumped off the window sill and returned to the balcony. His soft pink claws step on the floor. It didn’t hurt.
After the world administrator came online.
There was a change in Zhu Qing’an’s home.
His parents allowed Qin Hengyi to replace the family’s housekeeper AI.
The small house, which wasn’t very big, but seemed very cozy, suddenly lit up automatically.
The porridge machine in the kitchen automatically ran, the millet stored in it was steamed to soft and delicious, a faint aroma floated all over the kitchen.
The washing machine automatically washed the unclean clothes. The floor sweeper obediently cleaned up the garbage on the floor.
Zhu Qing’an twitched his cat ears and looked at all this.
He walked to the door of his childhood room and pushed it open with his paws.
The table, which was empty, was set up with a cup of hot milk. The sweet smell of milk spilled out with the hot air.
The rag doll, which had accidentally fallen to the floor, was put back on the bed.
The little boy’s favorite storybook was spread to the page he was reading before.
Zhu Qing’an jumped on the desktop and glanced at the blank book, at this point there was suddenly an extra line of writing.
–[Little friend, you are very cute.]
–【Whatever you want, I will give it to you.]
These words weren’t superfluous distractions, just simple compliments and promises.
In the eyes of the little boy, Qin Hengyi may be like a meteor that should be available, bright enough to illuminate the heart of a child.
Zhu Qing’an’s heart inexplicably softened.
Qin Hengyi lost all memory later, but he also didn’t forget this warm promise, as if the promise had long been deeply rooted in his inner heart.
In the beginning, he didn’t question his identity as Zhu Qing’an’s lover. It was because in his heart, there had long been a place for Zhu Qing’an.
In his eyes, Zhu Qing’an was a little friend, very cute. He would give him anything he wanted.
Zhu Qing’an gently meowed, and his heart pounded wildly.
He was also puzzled.
Why didn’t he remember these fond memories?
The door suddenly opened.
Zhu Qing’an froze, jumped off the table and went to greet the family.
This was what a kitty cat should do.
The little boy had just returned from the amusement park, happy as can be. His cheeks were slightly red from playing, and his mouth was still covered with a bit of syrup. He held up an uneaten strawberry-flavored marshmallow in his hand, and the soft pink doughnut was like a small pink cloud that followed the boy around.
His eyes were smiling, clutching the corner of his mother’s coat and talking endlessly about the events at the amusement park.
The woman smiled and coaxed the little boy.
The man, meanwhile, strode into the den to check on the world keeper coming online.
Everything went smoothly and perfectly.
Qin took over the administration of the empire without a hitch.
Their home …… was also particularly cleaned by him, especially Zhu Qing’an’s bedroom.
It was evident that Qin really liked their son.
The man passed by a clean white wall in the living room and suddenly remembered something, he gently knocked on the wall, “Qin.”
The wall with the holographic screen embedded began to flicker and the blond teenager was reflected in the wall.
“Daddy, who is this ……?”
The little boy also noticed the teenager in the screen. He had never seen the other, but he felt inexplicably familiar.
The man smiled lightly, “Your good friend from now on. Qin Hengyi.”
The little boy blinked, stood on tiptoe, lifted his head, and shyly stammered, “Mr. Qin, Hello.”
The child’s voice was soft and tender, and it made his heart sink.
Zhu Qing’an tucked his paws.
He suddenly remembered an afternoon many days ago. He was lying on the sofa covered with sunlight and opened the game.
The first time he saw the cold, unfamiliar man, he subconsciously called out, “Mr. Qin.”
The shout was smooth and intimate, without any hesitation. As if he had used this name countless times years ago.
The blond boy in the screen half squatted down, palm pressed against the screen separating the two, eyes slightly narrowed, lips picked up, the boy’s voice was particularly moving: “Good boy.”
“My name is Zhu Qing’an, blessing of Zhu, peace of mind ……” “The little boy smiled:” Mr. Qin …… ”
Tucked aside, Zhu Qing’an looked at the two people who knew each other, and it was as if something inside had therefore melted away.
He stood up and quietly walked past the two men’s backs and returned to the boy’s bedroom.
The curtains of the bedroom were blown up by the breeze, and the sunlight streamed down with the fragrance of flowers outside the window. The milk that Qin Hengyi prepared for the little boy wasn’t yet cold and was steaming outward with white hot breath.
He shook his tail, licked his paws and returned to the soft kitten nest.
He tucked in the nest, inexplicably a little sleepy, so he closed his eyes and curled up to fall asleep.
This sleep, he woke up and returned to the white space he was in before entering the plot.
There were two doors in the space.
One door read “My past and Yours.” A heart-shaped lock hung on the door, which couldn’t be opened again.
That was the hidden plot that Zhu Qing’an just experienced.
Zhu Qing’an turned around and saw another door that wasn’t opened.
On the door was written “My love and yours.”
It seemed that …… this new hidden door, was the main event.
Zhu Qing’an took a step and pushed open the new door.
Awareness sank. A warm glow wrapped around his torso and took him to another place.
Zhu Qing’an opened his eyes and was greeted by a laboratory.
He lowered his head and saw that he was wearing an experimental white lab coat.
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
Last time he was dressed as a cat, this time he might be a small experimenter. Probably one of the members of the production “Qin”.
He rubbed his head and sat up from the couch. The lab was decorated with instruments he couldn’t understand, so he didn’t pay much attention to them, but instead focused on the light computer he was holding.
The light computer hadn’t been turned off yet, and he unintentionally bumped into the page that was open in the light computer.
It stopped at a trending topic.
#Does AI possess love? #
Zhu Qing’an: “……?”
He was a little puzzled and clicked in.
The point in time he crossed was shortly after Qin Hengyi was born.
Qin Hengyi had made a great career as a world administrator. Everything within the empire had become well organized under his management.
But the only thing that was lacking was that Qin Hengyi didn’t seem to have any emotions related to humans, such as love. At least he didn’t express it.
It was a terrible thing to have an AI who controlled supreme power but didn’t understand love. It was easy to ignore the human suffering and warmth due to the cold rules, and it might do some things that harm human life, and even “Ai mutiny” that appeared in film and television works.
Zhu Qing’an looked at these and frowned.
Qin Hengyi couldn’t be without love.
He was his lover and knew this best.
If there was no love, their story wouldn’t have happened.
Zhu Qing’an was just about to see what the netizens had to say when he was suddenly tapped on the shoulder. An unfamiliar voice sounded near his ear: “Xiao Chen, what are you looking at. I got the live broadcast of the meeting, want to see it together?”
The person who asked him was obviously a colleague of this body.
Zhu Qing’an gave a start and subconsciously asked, “What meeting?”
The colleague was stunned, slapped his head and laughed: “Have your experiments turned you silly? Today, several elders of the laboratory, will discuss with the government whether Qin should stay ……”
Zhu Qing’an’s pupils suddenly shrank, he stammered, “Sh, what …… discussion?”
The colleague spread his hands helplessly: “Many people suspect that the AI, who serves as the world administrator, has no love. AI without love, not only can’t it serve as the world administrator, we also have to destroy it.”
Zhu Qing’an’s hands trembled slightly –
What he feared most, still happened.
The journal he had brought out of the lab had mentioned that the AI named Qin, was destroyed.
“Do they have proof that it doesn’t have love?!” Zhu Qing’an impulsively yelled.
“Hey ……” the colleague was obviously frightened by Zhu Qing’an, he hurriedly spoke, “We also understand this. But the government …… just wants to use the excuse of ‘AI has no love’ to destroy the world administrator, the government feels that its right to rule …… is violated by the AI.
That government …… doesn’t care if the AI has real love or not.”
He was also helpless.
Zhu Qing’an frowned, “Let’s go to the meeting first.”
The colleague nodded and opened his light computer.
The meeting about Qin Hengyi was held in a large assembly hall.
But there were only a few people sitting sparsely in the assembly hall, and the person at the head of the meeting was Zhu Qing’an’s father.
The man was much older, but his figure was still upright. He had his head down, holding a document in his hand.
The camera zoomed in.
Zhu Qing’an saw the words in the document, it was like a bucket of cold water was thrown on him.
[AI Awareness Destruction Notice]
[Agree, please sign]
The man clutched the document tightly, his eyes were filled with inexhaustible anger. He didn’t sign, but chose to put down the pen and sighed heavily.
Zhu Qing’an looked at this scene.
— He came here, a step too late.
Even though this was history that had already happened, he still couldn’t help but try to undo it.
“Sir, please sign.” The government cadre sitting in the center of the meeting hall tapped the table, “We will not allow an AI who does not possess love, have the right to rule the empire.
The right to rule should belong to us.”
The man was silent and abruptly stood up.
His upright figure met the bright sunlight, inexplicably like a mountain. He looked at the sunlight and thought of Zhu Qing’an and the blond boy.
Amidst the consternation of the crowd, he said in a deep voice.
“We have negotiated so much.”
“It would be better to let it prove to us whether it has love.”
“In front of the whole world.”
