Chapter 211: Kindred Spirit
Translator: Lonelytree Editor: Millman97
At the mention of 'Project Galaxy', Xinghe's eyes widened in shock.
She narrowed her eyes at Ee Chen, trying to read his expression.
Ee Chen was doing the same to her.
"Who are you?" Xinghe questioned coldly.
"I am, of course, Ee Chen; I guess we are kindred spirits of sorts."
"Looks like my suspicion is founded, you have heard of this before. Well, your name is too much of a give-away after all."
"What is Project Galaxy?" Xia Zhi piped up beside her.
No one answered him.
"Come to me if you need any help, but I'm sure I'm going to need your help in the future. People like us should look out for each other," Ee Chen added cryptically before switching off the camera feed.
However, Xinghe still had many unanswered questions.
"Sis, what is this Project Galaxy? And what has it got to do with you?" Xia Zhi pursued his enquiry.
Xinghe looked him in the eyes and said, "I too have no idea what it is. Xia Zhi, promise me you will stop asking or even mentioning this thing to me or any others, act like you heard nothing."
Xia Zhi saw the persistence in her eyes so he relented, "Fine, I promise you"
Xinghe nodded. She stood up and said, "Come, let's go down for dinner. I have a job for you to do after that."
"Okay!" Xia Zhi accepted happily, however he still desperately wanted to know what this Project Galaxy is!
The next day, Xinghe had Ee Chen help with the artificial limb design.
To Xia Zhi's disappointment, they didn't mention a word about Project Galaxy.
From the looks of things, like how they kept alluding to things Xia Zhi couldn't understand, they'd continued their previous conversation after yesterday's dinner.
Xia Zhi knew better than to come out and address the elephant in the room. Instead, he focused on the job his sister assigned him, to help Xiao Mo run the company.
In any case, he had no reason to stay when Xinghe and Ee Chen worked on the designs. They were too proficient for him to be able to contribute anything.
Ee Chen's computer skills were as good as he promised.
Thankfully, Xia Zhi had gotten used to crazy computer whizzes from constant exposure to his sister or else he might've started to feel sorry for himself.
Ee Chen's ability was not as good as Xinghe but it was still miles ahead of Xia Zhi.
Xia Zhi who initially intended to further his knowledge and skill in computers finally recognized his own limits.
He could spend his whole life studying IT skills and he still wouldn't be able to rival his sister; he decided to give up on that path.
He made the decision to switch to another lane in life. The majority of his focus shifted to help Xiao Mo manage the company.
Surprisingly, he found that he had an affinity for business management.
With regards to Xinghe's skills, even Ee Chen was impressed and humbled by them.
"You are truly the best computer expert I have had the fortune of meeting. I can't believe you manage to construct something so intricate which requires such extreme expertise," Ee Chen gasped in astonishment as he examined the almost-finished design on Xinghe's computer screen.
If not for his collaboration with Xinghe over the past few days, he'd have no idea she was so crazy good at her job.
He felt amused thinking back to Ruobing's plan to test Xinghe on her mathematics and computer technique.
It was akin to a presumptuous kid testing a college professor on their knowledge.
Xinghe's expansive knowledge aside, she also had a brain that was as efficient as a high-speed computer.
