OIAA: Chapter 98

Yi Jiamu immediately called Yi Hang’s number to make an inquiry but Yi Hang said it wouldn’t be clear over the communicator. He asked them to go to the laboratory. Yi Jiamu suddenly felt a bit nervous and exchanged a look with Gu Yesheng.

On the contrary, Gu Yesheng just took his hand indifferently and walked out, as if the test results had nothing to do with him. Yi Jiamu followed behind him and saw Gu Yesheng’s tall and slender figure.

It was obviously very familiar but also strange. Gu Yesheng hadn’t said anything or expressed too much since coming back this time but Yi Jiamu could still feel that Gu Yesheng seemed to have become more silent than before. There was also a feeling that couldn’t be described. Maybe this was growth but it always left a confusing taste.

In the past few days, Yi Hang had directly requisitioned the largest examination room of the comprehensive hospital. He saw the two people coming in and waved at them to close the door. He didn’t say much and handed over a large stack of inspection reports. “Take a look.”

Yi Jiamu reached out and took it. His mouth twitched slightly and he didn’t choose to read them. “Dad, just directly say the results. We can’t understand these things.”

Yi Hang watched him steadily before glancing at Gu Yesheng, as if hesitant to speak. Such an attitude made Yi Jiamu even more nervous. “Why? Is there a problem?”

He might not trust the routine examinations of the hospital but this didn’t mean he wanted something to be wrong with Gu Yesheng.

Yi Hang was silent for a moment before finally opening his mouth. “In fact, this is the first time I’ve encountered such a situation. In Xiao Gu’s body, I’ve detected a gene that doesn’t belong to him. Now I need to make sure of the source of the gene.”

He looked at Gu Yesheng and asked, “Did those people do anything to you during the period when you were taken away?”

Gu Yesheng thought about the medicines injected into him and his eyes slightly shook. “If my guess is correct, it should be the gene chip used to extract my ability.”

“Gene chip? No wonder why I found traces of artificial synthesis in these genetic tissues.” Yi Hang stared deeply at Gu Yesheng and his expression was serious. “In this case, I’m afraid things will be a bit troublesome.”

The rapid development of science and technology meant genetic engineering research was also becoming more perfect. Many artificial gene derivatives were emerging endlessly.

Previously, Yi Hang thought that his recently discovered technology to transform human genes into plant tissue was already at the forefront of science and technology. Unexpectedly, the people of Arbiter had perfected it to use in ability weapons.

In any case, Yi Hang was an expert in medicine. He might not know the specifics of the transfer method but he already understood the biggest problem of this technology.

This type of foreign gene fragment was inside the body. If it couldn’t be perfectly integrated then it was an existence that would break the balance of the body’s functions. No side effects were found currently but if things continued like this, sooner or later, Gu Yesheng’s body would be completely ruined.

In addition to this problem, there was something else that made Yi Hang very concerned. No matter what field it was used in, all current gene chips had fully realized the space export technology. If Arbiter’s gene chip left in Gu Yesheng’s body completed the ingestion of the ability, it would increase the activity level of this microchip. At the same time, the ability would enter the container for it.

If there wasn’t an accident, it would become an ability weapon with a very high risk factor. If the allied government’s actions hadn’t completely wiped out Arbiter and remnants were still hiding in the vast universe then an unknown ability container was obviously like a time bomb that could threaten the security of the stars at any time.

Yi Hang thought of all the details in the blink of an eye and couldn’t help cursing. Then he dialed Yang Xingwen’s number without hesitation. Yang Xingwen was very busy recently but he came over the moment he heard there was a new situation.

By the time Yang Xingwen arrived, the Yemu couple had already stopped chatting and the laboratory was silent. Thanks to the new direction provided by Gu Yesheng, Yi Hang had done more targeted inspections and the conclusions reached further confirmed his judgment.

The moment Yang Xingwen pushed open the door, Yi Hang held up a checklist to show him. “I didn’t guess wrong. The gene chip is currently in an active state and is absorbing the ability from Xiao Gu’s body. Mr Yang, you better submit this report so the government’s military department can arrange a comprehensive search through the stars. If I haven’t guessed incorrectly, the people of Arbiter might’ve already installed destruction systems all throughout the stars to kill us.”

Yang Xingwen was stunned after hearing such words. Then he returned to his senses and hurriedly had Yi Hang tell him the ins and outs.

He finished listening and couldn’t help cursing. “F*k, these people are still lingering!”

He cursed but didn’t dare delay any longer. He immediately packed all the documents and left in a hurry. Everything that should be confessed was confessed. The stone in Yi Hang’s heart had fallen.

However, before he could take a breath, he turned around and saw Yi Jiamu’s straight gaze. This caused his entire body to freeze. Yi Jiamu had sat next to Gu Yesheng and stayed silent while Yi Hang talked about business. Now he stared at Yi Hang with a tense mouth. “So if this continues, what will be the result?”

He didn’t understand a lot of the academic content but Yi Hang had used simple words when talking to Yang Xingwen. Therefore, he could understand it clearly.

To put it simply, a ‘time bomb’ had been inserted into Gu Yesheng’s body and could absorb his ability at any time. This ability was likely to be transferred to high-risk weapons hidden somewhere. Once the energy of these weapons were filled, they were likely to cause a devastating blow to the world.

It was indeed a major event related to the life and death of all humanity but at this moment, Yi Jiamu was more concerned about what would happen to Gu Yesheng once the weapons were remotely activated.

Yi Hang knew his son well and already knew what Yi Jiamu was thinking. His eyes flickered with a guilty conscience and he didn’t speak for a long time. However, Yi Jiamu obviously wasn’t going to let him go and continued to ask, “Is there a solution?”

Yi Hang was silent.

Yi Jiamu insisted. “Dad, tell me. Is there a solution?”

Yi Hang was hesitant to speak. Then under the persistent inquiry, he could only sigh helplessly. “I’m not sure but… there is a way we can try.”

His research was originally about genes. He might not be able to crack the genetic code of this chip in a short time but it wasn’t impossible if he wanted to simply and bluntly destroy the chip.

Yi Hang had previously extracted Yi Jiamu’s genes for research. His ability attribute would undoubtedly be the key to cracking this gene chip. The most troublesome thing was that the gene chip had been completely integrated into Gu Yesheng’s body. To completely resolve this problem, it was necessary for Yi Jiamu’s genes to undergo a thorough ‘fusion’ with it.

The pheromones blending between an alpha and omega was the best opportunity to do so. In this way, he had to be thankful that the two of them had already become ‘partners’. As for why Yi Hang felt reluctant, the key was that this process was more profound than a lifetime mark.

They needed to fully elicit all the pheromones in Gu Yesheng’s bodies and then introduce Yi Jiamu’s pheromones at the highest point of the whole body sensory adjustment. The repeated collisions and washings of pheromones between the two people would allow every cell in the body to be thoroughly cleaned.

It was unknown if it could be completed to 100% but there was no doubt that during this process, both Gu Yesheng and Yi Jiamu would experience unprecedented suffering. This was the reason why Yi Hang wasn’t willing to tell Yi Jiamu about this method. He really couldn’t bear to see his own child suffering like this.

Moreover, this situation wasn’t like a complete mark. A person with a complete mark could clean out the genital cavity afterwards. Meanwhile, this deep fusion at the genetic level was completely irreversible. It was good if it succeeded but if it failed and Gu Yesheng died, Yi Jiamu would lose the ability to have another alpha partner and it would be too late to regret it.

Still, not surprisingly, Yi Jiamu nodded without hesitation the moment Yi Hang finished speaking. “I will do it!”

Gu Yesheng had been staying silent the whole time. Now his eyelashes trembled and he blurted out, “No!”

Yi Jiamu didn’t seem to hear him and kept talking to Yi Hang. “Dad, list what is needed in advance so we can be ready.”

Yi Hang knew Yi Jiamu’s temperament and his expression was complicated. He glanced at Yi Jiamu and let out a low sigh. “You just need to bring yourselves. I will take care of the rest.”

Yi Jiamu nodded. “Thank you, Dad.”

Gu Yesheng finally couldn’t sit still. He stood up and grabbed Yi Jiamu’s hand. “Come out with me.”

Yi Jiamu’s eyes slightly lowered and he obediently allowed himself to be pulled outside. The corridor outside was silent and there weren’t any other people. Gu Yesheng pressed Yi Jiamu against a wall and stared at him. “Do you know what you are doing?”

Yi Jiamu didn’t shy away from this gaze. “I know.”

Gu Yesheng’s chest shook and his voice became increasingly low and hoarse. “No, you don’t know. You don’t understand what such an irreversible operation means.”

There was sudden silence around them. Yi Jiamu suddenly gently took Gu Yesheng’s hand and rubbed it carefully. He could feel the layers where the wounds on the palm had become scabs. Gu Yesheng’s fingers trembled slightly at the moment of contact and then slowly relaxed.

Yi Jiamu stroked it bit by bit and then squeezed the little finger. “I just want to be with you all my life, okay?”

Such words were full of overly cautious temptation.

Gu Yesheng’s eyes flickered slightly. His Adam’s apple moved and he opened his mouth to say something, but he was completely choked up.

Yi Jiamu didn’t pay attention to Gu Yesheng’s expression. He slowly opened his arms and hugged Gu Yesheng’s waist. “Actually, you can cry. You still have me.”

‘It isn’t that no one wants you. You still have me…’

The heart he thought had become numb suddenly beat quickly. For so many days, there was an illusion of tranquility like nothing had happened. Now that a crack appeared in the suppressed emotions of his heart, he completely collapsed.

Gu Yesheng’s body trembled uncontrollably. He lowered his head and gently pressed his forehead against Yi Jiamu’s shoulder, letting the moisture come out from his dry eyes. The mask of forbearance and indifference was torn apart instantly and two slender figures hugged each other while crying.
