Everyone's heart was about to jump out from their mouth when they saw the magic of those godly fingers. She was practically insane with her typing speed as her fingers were running at the speed of light. And the work this lady was doing was not a child's play but something that involves a high level of expertise.
For any computer expert, this was the true heaven and they don't want to miss the opportunity to learn something new. Holding their breath they stood silently, afraid of being kicked outside if they dare to disturb them.
Above that, their boss was equally good. They never got the opportunity to see their boss' working right in front of their eyes and undoubtedly he was keeping up with lady's work. He was practically multitasking just like that lady.
When others didn't find Jianyu and Mei anywhere, they came to check in the computer room reflexively. Jianyu heard the heavy footsteps and understood everyone is coming in this direction. Feng Jin was about to say something the moment he enters inside but Jianyu raised his hand to stop him from disturbing Xiu Mei.
Feng Jianyu got up from his seat with a stack of pictures and some documents and passed them to Feng Jin. "These are the details of the base and pictures taken by satellite. It will help you in understanding the base' structure and formulating the combat plan. Whereas, she is still trying to get the data from Zeus' laptop. Do not disturb! I want pin drop silence near this room" He glared at everyone and stated.
Everyone left with the documents to discuss the combat plan. Lu Xion left with everyone when he saw Xiu Mei in her work mode. Disturbing her in work mode is the most dangerous thing; he won't risk poking her at this time.
During lunch, Rong Xiang carried a tray of food for his boss and lady boss. Feng Jianyu took the tray from his hand and sighed looking at Xiu Mei who was busy working on the computer for the last 9 hours with only a glass of milk and a bowl of porridge in the name of food.
He was worried about her. This much stress is not good for her, especially when she's wounded and taking lots of antibiotics. He went up to her, pulled the chair closer and brought the piece of chicken near her mouth.
"Tsk…. Mmm!! No! Go away" Sticking her gaze on to the screen she pushed his hand away. Feng Jianyu didn't force her either and pushed the tray aside and before returning back to his assigned work. How can he feel any appetite when she is not eating anything?
Instead of disturbing her he decided to contribute in her work to finish it in the least possible time.
Night fell and both of them didn't touched a morsel of food except some light breakfast in the morning.
"Voila!" Xiu Mei shouted in excitement, "Finally it's done. I've recovered the entire data"
"Show!" Feng Jianyu leaned in and took the mouse cursor to see the files she has recovered and checked the information it contains. Undoubtedly there was information that would contribute significantly to this mission. "Amazing! You finally did it in a single day"
"Yes…. Now the only thing left is to process the information" She smiled in satisfaction and took off her eye protection glasses that Dr. Choy gave her to put on while working on a computer.
Seeing Xiu Mei rubbing her eyes, Feng Jianyu got annoyed and pulled her hands away from her eyes, biting her fingers as if punishing her, "Dare rub your eyes? I'll bite your fingers"
"Sorry!" She pouted her lips feeling guilty before looking at the screen again, ready to finish the in hand task.
Feng Jianyu pinched her cheeks between forefingers and thumb and forcefully turned her face back to him, "No more work! You will eat something first, then take medicines and finally take off for the rest of the day. It's my order" He used a stern tone that leaves no room for objection.
"But Jianyu… Umphhh"
He shushed her with a forceful but short kiss…
"I think you forgot my yesterday's revenge kiss. Want that once more?" He threatened her.
Xiu Mei shook her head like a rattle drum with eyes as big as saucers, "No… No… Painful! You bite them"
She was persuaded…. No! She was threatened easily with a kiss and followed the monster husband's set up. Anyway, they have progressed significantly today, so a little rest is must for the body to begin fresh tomorrow.
"That's like my intelligent wife" He smiled and carefully picked her up in his arms. Xiu Mei obediently wrapped her hand around Jianyu's neck as he carried her back to the room. The building from which they were working right now is Qingzhou's ancestral property. A little old but well maintained.
He set her on the mattress, "Wait here! I'll go and get food from the kitchen" Feng Jianyu had already preinformed kitchen staff to put food for them in refrigerator. How can he let Xiu Mei sleep without eating anything?
"I'm warning you chipmunk. Don't let me see you anywhere other than this bed"
"Ok fine! Now go. I'm hungry"….. 'Monster headache' she mumbled under breath.
"I heard that!" Xiu Mei heard his voice before leaving and bites her tongue.
After Jianyu left her eyes caught sight of fresh clothes and towel. She checked her hands and feet and felt rather sticky everywhere. Although Jianyu gave her sponge bath in the morning, that's not enough to let go of the dirty feeling.
'I should take a bath. Don't know how Jianyu managed to sleep with me last night. Damn, it's so dirty everywhere. Mei but you better hurry up before the monster comes back'
From the rack she peeled open the waterproof gauze to cover her wounds with it as she is not allowed to let water touch her stitches.
