Chapter 94: Separated

And if they failed, all their previous effort would all go to waste.
The point was if they missed out on this opportunity, not only would they lose the perfect chance to challenge Chui Corps, they would also have unnecessarily exposed their entire plan to Chui Ming. It wouldn't bode well for them.
Their future hinged upon this Hacker Competition.
Xiao Mo understood that as well. He furrowed his brow and said anxiously, "Miss Xia, you must figure out a way to get out of this!"
She couldn't be absent for the Hacker Competition.
"Mr. Police Officer, my sister really didn't say anything libelous against them, couldn't we do this tomorrow?" Xia Zhi tried to persuade the policeman but was firmly rejected.
"No, Xia Xinghe must follow us to the precinct today to aid in the investigation or we'll detain her for obstruction of justice!"
"Zhi," Xinghe told him calmly, "Listen to me, enter the competition with Xiao Mo, and I'll go with these gentlemen."
Xia Zhi shook his head, saying, "No, Sis, you can't go"
"I have to. Trust me, I believe in the two of you," With that, Xinghe followed the police into the police car and off they went.
Xia Zhi watched the vehicle speed away and kicked his own car's tire angrily, "I will never forgive those bastards!"
Xiao Mo who was comparatively calmer, said after some consideration, "The lawsuit they filed against your sister isn't that serious, we can pay her bail."
"That's impossible. Wasn't it obvious whose side those police officers were on? Chui Ming must have pulled some strings over at the police station so my sister won't be getting out so easily," The more he thought about it, the more agitated he became, "What to do? What to do? Is this the end for us? They have won?"
Xiao Mo gripped his hands tightly, feeling mad at himself.
He felt so useless for his inability to rescue the person who practically saved his life.
"I've got it!" Xia Zhi suddenly shouted. He pulled open the car door and rushed into it, adding, "Get in, we have to get to the Hacker Competition now!"
Xiao Mo was confused but he too leaped into the car, asking, "What's your plan?"
Xia Zhi looked at him funnily. "If possible, I really don't want to see that person again but at this juncture, only he can help us now."
"Who is it?"
Xia Zhi's eyes darken as he revealed, "Xi Mubai."
Xiao Mo was flabbergasted when he heard the name.
Xi Mubai was the leading man in all of Hwa Xia's internet and computer industry. Everyone in the business knew of him.
Needless to say, he was invited to the Hacker Competition as well.
However, Xia Zhi was being too optimistic with his plan. It was impossible for them to personally see Mubai even after they reached the venue.
After all, Mubai was a VVIP. He wouldn't be seen in the crowd.
"I'll go set up our software and you try to locate Xi Mubai. I know we have to save Miss Xia but we can't forgo our actual duty," Xiao Mo said when they arrived.
Xia Zhi had no issue with that. He nodded and said, "Alright, then we shall part ways to focus on our separate tasks. Call me if anything comes up, Brother Xiao."
"Alright, good luck."
They had to try their best to save Xinghe because without her, they couldn't possibly win.
However, when Xiao Mo strode towards the testing venue, he stumbled into Chui Ming and his crew.
As the saying goes, it is easy for enemies to cross path. The testing hall was quite spacious but they just had to meet.
Xiao Mo wanted to turn around but it was already too late, Chui Ming had spotted him.
Both parties were equally shocked.
A few years ago, after Xiao Mo was pushed to the brink of hopelessness by Chui Ming, he fantasized about stabbing him to death the next time they meet.
