Chapter 1: If I come back alive, you will pay the price of being a traitor

The personal smart terminal made a few beeping sounds, showing off today’s to-do list.

Enforcement reminder with crazy vibration that couldn’t be turned off.

Ji Xingjue dizzily raised his head from the messy bedding, lifting his eyelids and glancing at it.
A few lines of shocking blood-red characters leaped in front of his eyes:

    Time: November 3rd, 6 o’clock in the evening.

    Location: The garden on the top of Tike Hotel.

    Event: Blind date.

His face was darkened by the blood-red light as he stared blankly at the last two words for a while, then turned off the screen.

Ji Xingjue was a person who liked to solve problems that didn’t need to be delayed all at once.

After spending a few days in the laboratory in the dark and at night without sleep, he finally solved the staged problems.

Since he started hosting this project, he had almost lived in the laboratory.

Glancing at today’s to-do list again, Ji Xingjue paused at his fingertips and murmured “Can’t I choose to die?”. Then He went into the bathroom and took a shower, putting on his most expensive and only formal shirt.
After making a cup of coffee, he strolled out of the small room gracefully and leisurely.
Leaning against the wall, he was smiling as he raised his cup to his colleagues: “Good morning, my friends, don’t today’s data look more beautiful?”

Then he found that the atmosphere at the scene was a bit deadly.

The eyes every researcher looked over at him were desperate.

The little fat guy on the left murmured, “It’s 4:30 in the late afternoon.”

Ji Xingjue felt the heavy atmosphere, and slightly closed the arc of the corner of his mouth: “I have solved the progress problem of C9―could it be that the data was stolen?”

The little fat man shook his head.

Ji Xingjue pondered: “The synchronous experiment on the experimental base failed?”

The little fat man sighed in pain.

Ji Xingjue looked out of the window in surprise: “The Alliance and Star Pirates joined forces to fight the Imperial Capital, and our empire is dead?”

The person who had always turned her back to him flung down her long, slightly curly hair with a fascinating manner, turned around and raised her red lips: “I’m afraid it’s even worse.”

Ji Xingjue took a sip of coffee numbly, wondering what else could happen? It was unlikely that people who supported their research in the military department would fall, otherwise the project funds would be cut off.

That would be really scary.

“You have been hiding in the laboratory recently and didn’t step out, not a single step.
Haven’t you watched the news?” Cecilie, who understood Ji Xingjue’s character, nodded in her understanding, and made a sweep with her slender fingers.

The personal terminal casted a holographic projection, which was a rebroadcast of the news in the afternoon on Empire platform.

The screen showed a host hosting various military and political events in the empire, and Ji Xingjue’s hand that was holding the coffee cup tightened, and there was a thud in his heart.

Impossible, is it bankruptcy?

The host in the projection had a professional smile on his face, like a bionic robot, and broadcasts the words roundly:

 “…A victory on the front line! The commander-in-chief defeated the Star Pirates and the Alliance Legion in succession, and returned to the imperial capital Ankara on November 3rd.
Ankara welcomed the heroes of the Empire with the first snow of this year! This morning, under his majesty’s honor, the commander Qi Qing became the youngest marshal in the history of the empire!”

Ji Xingjue didn’t even listen to the following words.

He only heard the first half, and the hand that was holding the coffee cup became unstable, and the cup smashed to pieces.

The coffee spilled all over the floor and stained his expensive and only shirt into a dark color.

The smart cleaning robot hung in the corner, scanned his shirt and found that the material could not be processed, so he decisively abandoned him.

The little fat man sighed again: “Now you understand the seriousness of the situation.”

Ji Xingjue: “……”

Cecilie propped her elbow and rested her chin on her hand, and said in a cold tone: “Qi Qing is the real leader of the military.
Our project is fully funded by the military, and the funds are needed to be approved to be handed down.
You are the main person in charge of the project and your name is in the report.
Eighteen hours later, you will go to his office with me to apply for the project funds for the next year.”

Ji Xingjue: “…………”

Cecilie: “Do you think that when you and Qi Qing are in the same space and breathing the same air, can the project funds for the next year be approved?”

The little fat man deeply agreed, and then he felt that he was not humane enough, and hurriedly increased the blow: “Oh, grandma, why are you only asking the question of money? The most important thing at the moment shouldn’t be―can Ji Ge still be able to live until next year?”

There was a newcomer who had just arrived in the laboratory.
He was a hard-working person who didn’t hear anything outside the window.
Looking at the atmosphere as if facing a big enemy, he doubted that they weren’t discussing the heroes of the empire, but a demon shrouding the empire and tremblingly, secretly poked Cecilie on the back: “Professor Cecilie, this, this is… what’s going on? What is the situation of Professor Ji and Marshal Qi? Isn’t Marshal Qi stayed on the front line for seven years without returning, and the professor…”

Cecilie smiled and turned her head back: “Oh? You don’t know.
I didn’t expect that in the whole empire, there’s still one who doesn’t know about this.”

The other person said, stammering, “I came to the Imperia
