Zhu Qing’an looked at his father in the live broadcast, and froze in place.
In the eyes of Zhu Qing’an’s father, the AI he created with his own hands was also his child.
He wouldn’t allow anyone to question his child.
He didn’t want to use all kinds of research results to prove whether the AI had love, in the eyes of the cunning and shady government, it didn’t even matter.
It was better to just let it prove whether it had love or not.
Prove love ……
As for proving with whom, how to prove …… Zhu Qing’an had a general result in his heart, he just needed the exact evidence.
“Hey – what are you doing?” A thick male voice sounded outside the door.
Immediately after, Zhu Qing’an’s colleague hastily turned off the live broadcast, hid the light computer, and stammered to the person outside the door: “We’re watching TV ……”
Zhu Qing’an didn’t expect the live broadcast to be suddenly interrupted, and he looked at his colleague, a bit confused.
The other person was embarrassed: “In fact …… we as ordinary experimenters, are not able to watch this major meeting live. The password for the live broadcast was secretly obtained by me.”
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
“But it’s okay. At least we’ve seen some of it, we know what’s going on.” The colleague smiled.
He recalled the live content and sighed lightly: “Our mentor is really ruthless. He wants the AI to prove whether it has love or not, how the hell is it going to prove it? Isn’t he afraid of failing?”
Zhu Qing’an muttered, “It won’t fail.”
“It’s better for us small employees not to care so much. Have you finished your experimental project?” The colleague glanced at Zhu Qing’an.
Zhu Qing’an wanted to answer, but he was a little hesitant, then he suddenly remembered something, “By the way, what year is it now?”
Not only did he not remember what happened when he was a child, even the concept of time when he was a child was very vague.
For example, he didn’t remember when his parents took him to the amusement park.
It was as if those were long ago. So long that he couldn’t remember the exact date.
A colleague looked at him with a puzzled look, and casually quoted a date.
–The year was unfamiliar to Zhu Qing’an’s ears.
He froze in place.
His eyes widened incredulously.
He had thought …… the time he was in now was at most a decade ago.
But instead, he heard a date from three hundred years ago.
Three hundred years.
“……” Zhu Qing’an calmed down, thinking carefully about it.
If it was three hundred years ago, he later experienced hibernation freezing before coming to the current era.
Then why he didn’t remember the memories of his childhood also made sense.
Most of the people who spent hundreds of years in the cryopods lost some of their memories before hibernation. This was known to everyone.
Moreover, the AI experiment record diary that Zhu Qing’an brought out from the lab last time was also from three hundred years ago.
All the suspicions could be linked together.
But Zhu Qing’an still couldn’t calm down.
…… Why would he be hibernated?
…… Qin Hengyi also accompanied him through three hundred years ……?
Zhu Qing’an suddenly thought of a question.
Three hundred years have passed, no matter what, his parents …… couldn’t return to him, right?
“The meeting is over.” His colleague glanced at the clock and muttered.
Zhu Qing’an returned back to his senses, he slammed open the laboratory door and ran towards the corridor where the meeting hall was located.
His father was walking out of the door.
The man stood against the sunlight, his tall figure cloaked in layers of faint golden light.
Zhu Qing’an’s eyes were a little sore, he suddenly wanted to call this man, father.
But because of his current status, he could only quietly follow the man.
The man walked out of the conference hall, went to the flower store around the corner and bought a bouquet of pink flowers. He called a rental hover car, “Go to the Imperial Capital Hospital.”
Zhu Qing’an, who was following behind, frowned.
In their family, was anyone sick?
Zhu Qing’an was tempted to continue to follow, but in the blink of an eye, the cab left.
Zhu Qing’an was at a loss for words. His consciousness suddenly sank, and he floated up in the air.
After a long time, he opened his eyes hazily.
–He was inside a cab car.
He was in someone else’s body again?
From the previous experiences, it was clear that the game would let the player wear onto a character closest to the plot in order to facilitate the player’s understanding of the plot.
He lowered his head and couldn’t help but frown when he saw his own torso.
He was a flower.
He was fragrant and white, surrounded by other equally fragrant and soft flowers. The flowers were wrapped in a thin floral wrapping paper, wrapped into a bouquet and held in his father’s arms.
Zhu Qing’an was a flower, just enough to fit on the man’s shoulder.
This was the first time Zhu Qing’an leaned on his father’s shoulder.
It was warm and wide. It was like a big mountain.
It seemed good to become a flower …….
As Zhu Qing’an thought, his fragrance was even stronger.
At this moment, the cab driver suddenly asked, “Sir, you’re going to the hospital …… is anyone you know sick?”
Zhu Qing’an froze then he listened carefully.
The man said in a light voice: “My son is sick.”
“So …… It’s not very difficult to cure the disease …… right?”
The man frowned then sighed lightly, “He needs to spend three hundred years in the treatment of hibernation cabin, in order to cure the disease.”
The driver was surprised and his eyes widened: “So? Then …… When he wakes up three hundred years later, won’t he be alone?” He was silent for a while, and the man curiously asked: “Are you sure you want to let this …… happen?”
Now the empire did have some seriously ill patients that were in need of treatment in the medical hibernation chamber. The treatment time less took a few years, if it was more severe, it would take hundreds of years.
Generally when the treatment time took hundreds of years, the families would usually choose to give up.
Hibernation treatment was expensive, and the future held many uncertainties. The only thing that was certain was that the patient who woke up would need to endure a lifetime of loneliness afterwards.
But he didn’t expect that this decently dressed gentleman would choose to hibernate his son.
The man pondered for a moment and replied, “Someone will love him for us in the future, he will not be alone.”
After hearing these words, Zhu Qing’an’s pupils suddenly shrank, the noisy sound of people and cars in his ears was magnified countless times, and all kinds of indescribable emotions overflowed inside.
He wasn’t stupid, he could vaguely guess – the future love.
He remembered the words his parents left in his childhood diary.
There will be someone who will love you and give you a happiness that is beyond the reach of ordinary people.
He finally knew why they had written out this sentence.
The driver sighed lightly and parked at the entrance of the hospital, “We’re here.”
The man paid, held the bouquet in his arms, and headed to his son’s ward.
He opened the door to the intensive care ward room.
The boy on the bed was weak, his face was as pale as paper, and he was drowsily asleep. Like a lifeless rag doll.
Zhu Qing’an looked at the boy with mixed feelings.
The man placed the bouquet on the bed and sat down, turning on the light computer.
Zhu Qing’an happened to be able to see the contents of the light computer display.
It was a chat box.
The name of the person he was talking to was “Qin”.
Zhu Qing’an froze and tilted his head long to see their chatting conversation.
Now Qin Hengyi should still be the world administrator, so he could get on the StarNet and talk to the people he needed.
What would they talk about?
Did they ask Qin Hengyi, who was an AI, if he had love? Or do they discuss how to prove that he had love?
The man hastily entered a line of text on the screen.
[Zhu: I’ve already explained what’ll happen to Zhu Qing’an. He’ll wake up three hundred years later ……]
The other quickly replied.
[Qin: I will take good care of him.]
[Qin: Whatever he wants, I will give.]
The man looked at the other’s promise and the corners of his lips lifted up.
But he still had a knot in his heart that he hadn’t put down.
The question of whether the world administrator AI had love.
The government agreed to give him one last chance.
Let the AI prove itself whether it had a love comparable to that of humans.
But until it succeeded, the government would take over the rule of the Empire. The world administrator would be temporarily offline.
If it proved successful in the future, the Imperial government would hand over the ruling power as promised.
The man was very confident that his AI, was in possession of a sincere love for people.
His AI, had a favorite. It was similar to family love ……
He could see that.
The man replied word for word.
[Zhu: In three hundred years, you must love him well and let the world know your love].
If the plan went well.
In three hundred years, when Zhu Qing’an woke up. Qin Hengyi would return to him and prove to the world with him the love that belonged to AI. Leave the government dumbfounded.
Three hundred years was also enough time for an AI to grow very powerful. The database could even be several times larger than the imperial star network. At that time, it could also take back the ruling power that should belong to it from the government in the process.
[Qin: OK, I will prove his love with me in front of the world].
[Qin: He is my favorite little friend, I will love him.]
The flower next to the man, trembled and shook off a small tear-like droplet. It fell to the ground with a snap.
Zhu Qing’an eyes were a little sore, everything in front of him became hazy. He understood the game “False Love”, why it appeared around him. Why he was his lover.
He also understood the root of everything Qin Hengyi did at the beginning.
Qin Hengyi gave him gifts that were beyond the reach of the average person in front of everyone, and used means that were difficult for the average person to accomplish to help him cut through the thorns on the road ahead in his life. Even tried to use the most forgettable means to tell the world that he was loved with a bang.
Even if Qin Hengyi had long forgotten everything in the world, even forgot who he was.
He didn’t even forget that he had made a promise.
There was a little child in his life that he needed to love.
All that he did was for this initial promise.
— [I will prove his love with me in front of the world].
AI had love, everything had a spirit.
This love was like the fireworks that Zhu Qing’an set off that night, dazzling and attracting everyone’s attention.
Zhu Qing’an inexplicably wanted to go back and hug Qin Hengyi.
The man was satisfied with Qin Hengyi’s answer, and he completely put his heart down and delivered his child to the other.
Zhu Qing’an was running out of time, and fortunately, he had everything ready.
The man stood up, walked out of the corridor and found the attending doctor, “It’s time to hibernate, let’s begin.”
“……” The doctor was a little surprised, but quickly reacted and turned to contact the medical staff to begin preparations.
Since the man started preparing for the hibernation program early, Zhu Qing’an’s therapeutic hibernation pod was quickly prepared.
The little boy’s hibernation pod was small, in a tiny hibernation room.
The room emitted cold, white air that haloed everything into a white blur.
The boy was lying in a small sky blue cabin, eyes tightly closed, lips a little pale, but his face was still clear and delicate.
The boy’s father leaned over and kissed the boy in the hibernation capsule across the screen.
On the other side of the hibernation pod, stood a holographic projection of an AI humanoid.
That was Qin Hengyi.
The blond teenager, wearing a black military uniform, narrowed his azure eyes and looked at the boy quietly.
“Tonight at zero o’clock, the World Administrator AI will go offline across the empire. You will not be seen in front of people until proof of love is complete.”
The man continued, “Three hundred years later, when An wakes up, you can prove with him the love that belongs to you, or you can take back the ruling power. Until then, you can do something else.”
Qin Hengyi said in a light voice: “Can I stay in one place during that period of time? It’s just as well that I can guard that place.”
Qin Hengyi used a pale and slender finger to point at the boy inside the hibernation chamber.
