He had confidence and determination. He fully believed that only he could give Xinghe the greatest happiness and no one could love her more than him. She seemed to have sensed his thoughts and returned him a smile.
Then she averted her eyes and said, "Enough chit chat. We need to get back to work, I will hack into their system now."
"Alright," Mubai smiled and also turned back to work.
After Xinghe hacked into IV Syndicate's system and studied their surveillance. They finally knew how great this organization was. For one, the base was built underground. For another, the base was so huge that it was akin to an underground kingdom.
It was fitted with the best equipment and had airtight defense. There was a test at every door because the doors were only openable via facial recognition.
Even for Xinghe, searching through the server was a cautious business. One careless mistake and she would be found out.
Mubai seemed to have spotted something. He stared at the screen unblinkingly.
"How can this base be so big?" he queried. Xinghe had checked through many surveillance videos but she seemed to have only gone through the tip of an iceberg. It would probably take days to go through the entire base.
"This is IV Syndicate's main base?" Suddenly Philip walked in. He too was shocked by what he saw.
"That's right," Xinghe answered. "This is the IV Syndicate's heart."
Looking at the high-tech devices, bustling researchers, large amount of munitions and guards, Philip's face darkened. He announced, "This base must be destroyed, its continued existence will definitely cause harm to this country!"
"I will steal all their information now, but the time needed will probably be over our supposed limit," Xinghe added softly.
Initially, she thought that after she located the base, she could have everything she needed from them. However, the size of the group was something she didn't predict. Therefore, it was only logical that their information storage would be humongous as well.
With her alone, it would take some time before she could finish copying all the necessary information. However, there was no other candidate. If someone else did this, they would have been found out.
"How much time do you need?" Philip asked.
Xinghe shook her head. "Not sure, maybe one or two days, but even so, I don't think I have enough time to copy everything."
"We don't need everything. But first, you have to help me find my wife."
"Naturally." Their first mission was to save Philip's wife. Only with her safe and sound that the other operation could begin. Xinghe started combing through the surveillance to look for Kelly.
Philip was going to leave his house after he assigned his men to deal with this base but now he needed to stay.
He stared at the screen nervously, hoping to spot his wife soon.
However, the base's defense system was indeed powerful. Xinghe needed to re-hack into the system whenever she ventured into a new area. This ate into their time
Right then, Philip's phone rang. It was Aliyah.
Philip answered his phone with a drawn face. Before he could say anything, Aliyah's voice came from the other end.
"Philip, have you come to a decision? The election list will be announced tomorrow. If you don't register now, then there will be no chance in the future. Of course, you have to make the right choice before you make that decision or else I can't guarantee what will happen to Kelly."
"Was that the whole reason of your call?" Philip asked coldly.
