CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, US.
Gu Kewen placed down the report in her hand, her lips formed a smile, “France? Hehehe, perfume beauty, you will definitely acquire results, but it might not be the results that you were expecting.”
The report she had just looked at was the latest information. The content of this information was that the Xia Lei was about to attend Paris’s international weapon gallery.
When she thought of Xia Lei, Gu Kewen did something weird. She reached her hand into her pants and touched the scar above the fullness. This scar was given to her by Xia Lei. It itched and she gnashed her teeth.
Knock, knock, knock came the sound of door knocks.
Gu Kewen’s hand came out of her pants, she looked at the office door and said, “Come in.”
An agent of Korean descent came in, “Boss, the director wants to see you.”
“I got it, I’ll be right there.” Gu Kewen put away the report on the table.
There was the exact same report on Williams table. There were also two other customers seated in his office. One of them was Sylvia’s boyfriend, Adolf Hillman. The other was the CIA’s supervisor of Europe, Sean.
The moment Gu Kewen came in the door, she saw the report on William’s desk, she said, “Mr. Williams, you guys already knew?”
Williams nodded his head, “Sit.”
Gu Kewen caught Sean’s eye and then moved her eyes to Adolf Hillman. He nodded slightly at Gu Kewen as a greeting.
“Xia Lei will be going to France to attend the international weapon gallery. This was the information that just came from France.” William’s went straight to the point.
Gu Kewen replied, “I also just got the report. The information came from China.”
Williams said, “I do not care where the information came from, what I want are the results. Last time with the fish fork plan failed, the higher ups are starting to doubt our abilities. We must catch Xia Lei this time no matter what. We must not fail.”
“I will do my best,” said Gu Kewen. For some reason, the scar on her butt started to itch but it was not not to scratch it in front of three men.
“What I want is not is do your best but the result.” Williams eyes were heartless, “This time you will work with Sean. Mr. Adolf Hillman will also participate in this action. This time you must catch Xia Lei in France without fail.”
Gu Kewen explained, “The information says that Xia Lei is attending as the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ vice principal and the Thunder Horse Military Factory’s Director. We…”
“Vice principal of the Academy of Sciences?” Williams laughed coldly, “This fake identity cannot protect him. Even if we catch him in France, the only thing that the Chinese government will be able to do is object. Have we not heard enough objections? One more makes no difference.”
The corner of Gu Kewen’s mouth showed a hint of a smile, “I got it. Paris will be Xia Lei’s final life destination.”
“Get prepared. One hour later, you and your me will board the plane to Paris.” Said Williams.
Gu Kewen left William’s office.
“Sean, how much of Xia Lei’s secrets do you think Gu Kewen knows?” Asked Williams suddenly.
“I am not sure.” Sean thought for a second, “But from but experience, I think she knows a little bit but not a lot. She does not have the information channel about this afterall.”
Adolf Hillman joined in, “The fewer people who know the better. This was also the reason why we have continued to protect this secret. Xia Lei’s secrets are too important to us, it could even start a human revolution. If I were to measure Xia Lei’s value, then he is immeasurable. For him, it is even necessary to start a war.”
This was the American government’s perspective. To get Xia Lei, they were even willing to go to war!
Since they were even willing to pay such a price, why would the people of the CIA care about the identity of the vice principal of the Academy of Sciences that Xia Lei used this time?
Williams looked at Sean, “Sean, do you know what to do?”
Sean nodded, “This time I will bring Xia Lei back to Langley at all costs.”
The corner of Williams’ mouth turned into a slight smile, “And there is Gu Kewen, keep an eye on her. Do not let her come in contact with any more of Xia Lei’s secrets. If there is the need to, it is not like she cannot be sacrificed.”
“I know what to do.” There was no expression on Sean’s face.
A few minutes later, Adolf Hillman knocked at Gu Kewen’s office door.
“Mr. Adolf Hillman, is there something you need?” Gu Kewen was not interested in the handsome blond man in front of her.
“It’s like this.” Adolf Hillman was very courteous, “You are the CIA’s supervisor of Asia, you have control over Asia’s information system so I want to ask you about someone.”
“Sylvia,” Said Adolf Hillman. “She is my girlfriend but she stayed in China to work for Xia Lei.”
Gu Kewen replied, “There is not much value behind the information about Sylvia. I’m sorry that I cannot help you. However, according to my knowledge of Xia Lei, I would advise you to find a new girlfriend.”
“What do you mean?” An unhappy expression appeared on Adolf Hillman’s face.
Gu Kewen shrugged, “Doesn’t the fact that your girlfriend is willing to stay in China to work for Xia Lei explain the problem? There are very few women that can resist Xia Lei’s charms. His strength to seduce a woman is all over his body. Do you understand now that I have said it this way?”
Adolf Hillman’s face darkened.
To a man, there was nothing more humiliating than having their woman stolen by another man.
“Mr. Adolf Hillman, is there anything else you need?”
“No more, thank you.” Adolf Hillman left Gu Kewen’s office.
Gu Kewen smiled coldly, “Quietly wear your cuckold. Who knows how many times Sylvia has been done by Xia Lei. One hat each time, you can even start a hat store, cuckold king.”
At the same time at China’s international airport.
“Kiddo, do you really not want my people to protect you?” Shi Boren asked Xia Lei next to a Boeing 747. This was the fifth time he had asked.
Xia Lei smiled, “Boss Shi, I know that you are worried about me, I thank you. I have already thought it through, I will not make any more changes.”
“You are sure one stubborn kiddo. Have you thought about the consequence of doing it this way?”
“I have but this is the correct way to do it. Do not worry, I have a strong g life, I will not die.”
Shi Boren rolled his eyes at him, “You think you are a cat with nine lives? How about you take my stepdaughter with you? Yuyan is careful and knows how to take care of people.”
Xia Lei was speechless.
“*Sigh*I do not know what the higher ups are thinking. You are literally our national treasure, if something happens to you that would be a great loss. It cannot even made up for.”
Xia Lei laughed as he said, “I am not a panda. I can actually understand the higher ups’ decision. No matter how good our country’s military products are and no matter how cheap we sell it, it still does not open a market. Why is that? Because there are international bias and even discrimination towards us. This is very bad for the development of our military industry. France’s weapon gallery is a chance, a chance for our military industry to make a name for ourselves, a chance to give back to the Western world’s arrogance and prejudice. If our country’s military industry wants to go out there to open the door to the international market, this step is a must. If I want to change our current situation, this risk is nothing.”
This was one of the reasons, the other reason was naturally “Mona Lisa”, and Italy’s Bobbio town. Privately or publicly, this trip to France was an inevitable.
Shi Boren hugged Xia Lei, “Nevermind, I will stop persuading you. I just have one sentence, be careful. I will not forgive you if you came back from France with even a single less strand of hair.”
“Go now, there are still people waiting to say goodbye. I do not want their resentment.” Shi Boren pushed Xia Lei away.
Xia Lei smiled bitterly and then walked toward the air stairs. At the air stair entrance stood three women. The three section chiefs of Bureau 101, Long Bing, Tang Yuyan, and Liang Siyao. For some reason, since the lunch they had together 2 days ago, he started feeling uncomfortable by the three female section chiefs appearing together. He kept feeling like there would be in some trouble.
“Come back alive.” Tang Yuyan was the first to open her mouth, “Remember, there are still people here waiting for your return.”
This sentence was the same as a confession.
Xia Lei nodded his head and answered with a light “Yeah.”
“Do not be stubborn and do not leave the team,” Liang Siyao warned.
Xia Lei nodded again and answer with a light “Yeah.”
Long Bing said nothing. She walked in front of Xia Lei and reached out to help him fix the collar of his shirt.
She was still the same as always, if she could do it, then she would not say it. But it was just this simple move that warmed Xia Lei’s heart.
But Long Bing’s caring act provoked Tang Yuyan and Liang Siyao. Both women’s lips curled.
Xia Lei said, “You should all go back. When I return, I will bring you all France’s native products.”
“What native products does France have?” It was not easy to coax Tang Yuyan.
Xia Lei thought for a moment, “Uh, arent perfume and cosmetics France’s native products? I buy you guys authentic French perfumes and authentic French cosmetics.”
“Then I want two sets.” The corner of Tang Yuyan’s mouth finally showed a smile.
“I want three sets,” said Liang Siyao.
Long Bing only stared at Xia Lei without a word.
Xia Lei asked, “You do not want it? I will still buy it for you even if you do not want it.”
A smile appeared on Long Bing’s face.
They talked a little longer before Xia Lei finally boarded the plane. When he boarded he saw that Mu Jian-Feng and Ye Kun were also on the plane. The two only looked at him without even bothering to greet him.
It was not a surprise to Xia Lei that the two were on the plane since Mu Jian-Feng and Ye Kun were the old Directors of the country’s military industry. France’s weapon gallery was kind of like a grand event for all the military industries in the world, they would not miss it. However these two people were always coming up with some trouble, so what would they hatch out this time?
Somehow Xia Lei felt worried.
The plane quickly took flight. Xia Lei’s eyes looked through the plane body and onto the track behind it. He saw the three section chiefs of Bureau 101 still standing there watching the plane fly away.
Xia Lei tested his chin on his hand because his brain somehow felt heavier.
