Chapter 985: The Secret Leaked
Translator:Henyee TranslationsEditor:Henyee Translations
Lin Qiao left Teng under Lin Haoâ€™s watch, then brought Xie Dong out of
the nursery. Xie Dong wasnâ€™t there to visit the baby. he must have
something special or urgent for Lin Qiao.
â€œWhatâ€™s it about?â€ At the end of the hallway where no one else was
present, Lin Qiao told Xie Dong to start talking.
â€œThe secret of Sea City Base has been leaked.â€
â€œWhat secret?â€ Lin Qiao blinked and asked.
â€œAbout the soil remedy. Some people found out that itâ€™s a lie. Those
people were from Huaxia Base. They have brought the news back to Huaxia
City,â€ said Xie Dong.
Lin Qiao wasnâ€™t surprised to hear that. Instead, she said calmly,
â€œHuaxia people moved fast.
Her base had a small population, so it was easy to keep a secret in her
base. Unlike her base, Sea City Base was large. Any kind of people could
mingle in the hundreds of thousands of residents in that base. Therefore,
the secret would be revealed sooner or later. Lin Qiao didnâ€™t think
they could always keep it.
â€œApart from that, do they know anything else?â€ Lin Qiao asked.
She wanted to know if Huaxia Base people had found out about the real
source of food of Sea City Base. Since they had found out about the real
situation of the farm in Sea City Base, they must have learned that Sea
City Base had been providing people with a small number of fresh
vegetables every day. They would certainly try to find out where those
vegetables came from.
Those vegetables were, of course, from All Beings Base. If those people
found out about it, the secret of All Beings Base would no longer be a
secret. Sooner or later, Lin Qiaoâ€™s base would become a target. By that
time, things would be much more complicated than now.
Xie Dong shook his head and said, â€œNot yet, but they are indeed trying
to dig deeper. Sea City People detected their moves and covered all the
traces in time, so they found nothing else.â€
Lin Qiao nodded and said, â€œThankfully they reacted quickly enough.
However, I donâ€™t think they can keep the secret for long. We need to be
prepared. Have Sea City Base people caught those spies yet?â€
â€œMost of them, but a few got away. Thatâ€™s how the news was delivered
to Huaxia Base. Huaxia Base is preparing to send another batch of people
into Sea City Base to keep digging,â€ Xie Dong told her what he knew.
Lin Qiao folded her arms as she raised her right hand to scratch her chin
while thinking about the future situation of her base.
Sea City Base had caught some spies, but not all of them. Apart from the
few who got away, some of them might still be hiding somewhere. Those
people wouldnâ€™t make a move any time soon, in case they got caught by
Sea City Base people.
Huaxia Base would send another batch of people to Sea City Base. Those
people might make contact with the hunters from Sea City Base who were
outside. Even if they couldnâ€™t mingle in those hunter groups and get
into the base, they could hire some of those hunters to gather
Some of those hunters might refuse to collaborate with them, but they
could force them.
That needed time, but Si Kongchen would make moves quickly. Anyone who
was not stupid would suspect All Beings Base based on the close
partnership between it and Sea City Base.
â€œKeep a close eye on Huaxia Base and Sky Fire Base. If they make any
move, come back and tell me as soon as possible,â€ Lin Qiao dropped her
eyes and spent a short while pondering, then gave her order. After saying
that expressionlessly, she waved at Xie Dong and signaled for him to
â€œYes, maâ€™am.â€ Xie Dong nodded with a serious look as he responded,
then turned and left.
Lin Qiao stayed motionless and spent another while to think, then dropped
her arms and headed back to the nursery.
â€œInform all senior base administrators to go to conference room number
one at two pm today for a meeting.â€ At the door, Lin Qiao said to Shen
Yujen and then walked in.
â€œYes, maâ€™am!â€ Shen Yujen quickly left to spread Lin Qiaoâ€™s words.
In the nursery, Lin Hao asked her, â€œWhat happened?â€
Since Lin Qiao was summoning all senior base members to conference room
number one for a meeting, Lin Hao realized that it might be about
something important. Conference room number one was the largest
conference room. Normally, she would not hold meetings in that conference
room. Most of the meetings in the base took place in the smaller
conference rooms, or in the conference room in Base Number Two.
â€œSome people found out about Sea City Baseâ€™s lie. Huaxia Base have
learned that Sea City Base canâ€™t grow any food on their own. They
havenâ€™t found out about us though. But still, I need to make some
preparations as soon as possible.â€ Lin Qiao walked to him and said
while packing the things that Teng needed.
Lin Hao clearly understood that it was not a good thing for All Beings
Base. He thought for a moment and asked, â€œWill Huaxia Base target us?â€
Lin Qiao threw the things in her hands into her space, then gave him a
glance and replied, â€œWe are in a close partnership with Sea City Base.
Donâ€™t you think thatâ€™s enough to make Si Kongchen suspect us?â€
â€œOh, youâ€™re right!â€ Lin Hao nodded.
After packing, Lin Qiao brought Teng out of the medical department and
headed back to her flat in Base Number Two, starting her life as a mother.
While working in the office, she usually put Teng on the couch. The baby
wasnâ€™t able to crawl or walk, but he wouldnâ€™t burst in cries and
screams to torture the adults like the other babies either. If he needed
anything, he would just talk.
So, Lin Qiao let him lie on the couch without any worries.
Teng looked at his little hands, feeling a little bored. He was able to
move his hands and kick his legs, but not walk or crawl. His bones were
still too soft. However, he could live on milk, meaning that he was a
healthy baby. Based on how soon he opened his eyes, he figured that he
might grow faster than the other babies.
He was patient, but he still wanted to be able to move freely as soon as
possible. Therefore, he decided to exercise as much as he could.
In the quiet office, Lin Qiao had her head dropped while she was writing
something. From time to time, she raised her head to glance at Teng, who
was lying on the couch. The baby was always kicking his legs and swinging
his arms. Seeing that, Lin Qiao couldnâ€™t help but recall the days when
he still had vines on his head.
In the afternoon, Lin Qiao brought Teng and the materials that were
needed for the meeting to Base Number One, to attend to the meeting.
Before entering the conference room, she put Teng on the couch in her
house inside the space. Instead of letting the others see him, she
decided to leave the baby in her space for a while.
â€œThis meeting has only one themeâ€”prepare for war. From today, we have
one or two months to get ready.â€ Sitting in the middle of the room, Lin
Qiao took off her cap and put it on the table, then rested her elbows on
the table with her fingers crossed under her chin. Slowly, she scanned
the faces of the others with her eagle eyes.
