Xiu Mei went to the room where Feng Dingxiong had prepared a makeshift lab for her with all the necessary equipment she requested. She focused herself to create a plan for Liu Ning's treatment.
But before that, she needs help from a senior neurosurgeon to understand the complexities of the brain. She immediately dialed Dr. Wang Shi's number.
Dr. Wang: "What happened Mei? Is everything okay?"
Mei: "Yes, I'm fine. I need your help in Mrs.Feng's case. I can make machines but who will tell me the functioning of the brain? Help me!"
Dr. Wang sighed: "I can help you but in Aunty Ning's case is complicated. If you'll allow me, I want to involve Mr. Qiao in this case."
Xiu Mei: "Mr. Qiao? The old man we met in Country B, whose grandson Qiao Ting helped us with the video?"
Dr. Wang: "Yes, the very same. Before venturing into a pharma business he was one of the best Neurosurgeons in the world whose methods are still preferred by medical students."
Xiu Mei: "Great! I don't mind. In fact, I want you to create a panel of doctors who'll conduct the surgery as soon as I come up with the solution."
Dr. Wang: "Copy that. I'll revert back after talking to Mr. Qiao."
Xiu Mei hung up.
She settled down in front of the supercomputer, absolutely focused on her work. After a few hours, she received the call from Mr. Qiao himself who instantly agreed to help her in the case.
She promised him a collaboration deal but he politely declined, stating the reason that he doesn't want to sign a deal as a favor in return. If R-Tech really feels his company worthy to work with, only then they'll talk at the round table.
She spends the entire day at the lab, understanding the functioning of the brain and what points she should remember. After talking to Mr. Qiao, she once again returned back to work and realized that the moon was high in the sky when Mr. Feng pinged.
[Xiao Mei, you skipped lunch today. Be good! Eat dinner and take rest. Love Uncle Ding.]
Xiu Mei's lips pressed into a thin line. She felt something weird in her heart…. Don't know what it was but the feeling made her uncomfortable.
She turned off the computer and went back to the Chen house to eat dinner. Maybe the servants at Feng Manor were paid really well or who knows what, but the food served to her was organic, healthy, highest quality and just by taking a look she could tell that they were all sourced fresh.
The meat was juicy and tender, cognee cooked up to perfection, stuffed buns with correct filling and lots of pastries keeping in mind her sweet tooth. The taste was so delicious that she ended up eating more than usual.
She shrugged her shoulders. "Aunty Chen, food is amazing. Thank you for the delicious meal. I'll head back to work and will sleep in the lab only. Good night."
Aunty Chen: "But I didn't..."
Xiu Mei was already headed out of the door.
Aunty Chen: "It's the old master who got this food prepared for you." She mumbled to herself.
Days passed by and Xiu Mei's maximum time was spent in the laboratory. However, she made sure to take out an hour from her busy schedule and meet Liu Ning to give him updates on the estate. With her fake updates, she was helping Feng Dingxiong to prepare a high-class operation theatre on the estate for Liu Ning's complicated surgery.
Xiu Mei looked at the past one week data of the signal generated by the device. It was a weird pattern, within every twenty four hours the device shuts down for fifteen minutes. However, if the device was shut down at 2:15 in the middle of the night on day 1 then it will shut down at 2:00 on day 2, 1:45 at day 3 and so on.
Although the data was limited to just one week, she knows that it was the correct pattern that cannot be disturbed. A device as powerful as this has to be shut down for some time in order to not damage the recipient's brain. Liu Ning was an important pawn; she was the money milking cow so Yang Mi wouldn't take any risk of killing the cow.
"Hufff…..finally the fourth air shield cannon is ready." She wiped the sweat with the shoulder sleeves and took a minute to admire another of her marvelous creation.
To prevent Yang Mi from entering into Liu Ning's brain she reversed engineered the technology and created her own version of jammer and name it shield cannon. She'll install the four pillars at four different co-ordinates and activate them simultaneously to create an arc or shield around the estate, preventing Yang Mi to transmit the orders to the device in Liu Ning's brain.
As long as Liu Ning is within the shield, Yang Mi won't be able to control her brain. However, this does not mean that the doctors can take the device out. It would still be inside the brain, actively ticking like a bomb.
She had studied the remains of the man that exploded inside the MRI machine. She came to the conclusion that the device cannot be touched no matter what. She had a long discussion on this matter with Mr. Qiao and they finally reached a conclusion.
She looked at another half-completed device, and smirked…..
In the middle of the night, she was standing far away from the main mansion at a secluded area, digging a hole in the ground to securely place the last cannon.
With a big smile tugged on her lips she picked the phone, "I love you."
Feng Jianyu: "I love you."
Both said it simultaneously and then laughed silly.
"I miss you"
"I miss you"
Xiu Mei's heart skipped a beat when he gave a sounding kiss to her.
Feng Jianyu: "Always remember, I love you more and I'm missing you more-est"
Xiu Mei smiled, "More-est? Is that a word?"
Feng Jianyu: "Of course it is. I made it just now."
She sat down on the soil, knees folded. "What happened? Your voice sounds different. Is everything okay? You better not hide anything, otherwise I'll..."
"Yang Sheng's business in Country Z is spread beyond imagination. Along with illegal business that he runs under the name Black Panther there are many legal businesses too. And not so surprisingly under the cover of legal business, he is doing illegal activities." Feng Jianyu said, he deliberately paused for a few seconds before adding, "I searched many of his properties but your father....."
His incomplete sentence made her heart sink into the stomach. Her hand went to caress the metal body of the cannon, counting the number of buttons it has. "Don't look for my father."
Feng Jianyu's voice came: "Mei?"
"Yang Sheng is not stupid who'll keep him in any of his properties just like a normal person." She reasoned, "Either we have to trick them bring my father out or plant one of our men in his team. And both these things are easier said than done."
Feng Jianyu: "Right! Now check a video that I've sent you. I'm holding." He said seriously and Xiu Mei instantly checked her phone for the video. She was surprised to see a huge stock of radium inside a highly secure unit.
