Chapter 201: Making the richest man by air
After hearing Chu Tian’s words, Xia Mo locked her gaze and was stunned for five to six seconds. It wasn’t until the waiter brought two glasses of juice that she came back to her senses.
Confused, Xia Mo looked at Chu Tian and said, “I suddenly feel that it might have been better if you hadn’t told me. Now I’m even more curious. So, Chu Tian, can’t you tell me? I’m genuinely intrigued now. The curiosity is almost unbearable.”
“Actually, it’s not that I can’t say it.” Chu Tian smiled and said, “Sis, if you really want to know, I can tell you, but you must keep it a secret.”
“What else?” Xia Mo asked, “Will I be killed too?”
“Of course not.” Chu Tian said, “You are my Sis Xia. They will definitely not touch you, but they will take measures against me.”
“Take measures against you?”
“Yes.” Chu Tian said, “The only reason I can still be in Haicheng is that no one knows my other identity. So, if my other identity is exposed, or if more people know, then I guess they will take two measures against me.”
“First, I will be taken away from Haicheng. From now on, I will probably stay in the capital.”
“Second, I may continue to stay in Haicheng, but in the future, I will be surrounded by people who will be full of them and live under close surveillance.”
Xia Mo furrowed her brows and pondered for a moment before suddenly breaking into a smile. “Well then, can I keep the secret?”
Seeing that Xia Mo still wanted to know, Chu Tian chuckled and replied, “Alright, since you’re still curious, I’ll tell you so you don’t have to wonder too much.”
“In fact, I have another identity, and that is, I am a very powerful hacker.”
“Well, a hacker?” Xia Mo momentarily appeared innocent before questioning, “Is that all? Just a hacker?”
“Yes,” Chu Tian responded, “But it’s not what you imagine, Sister Xia. I’m a hacker, and my skills are terrifying. In the world, I’d say I rank second, and no one dares to claim the top spot.”
“As long as there’s a network in this world, there’s nothing I can’t hack into. In fact, if you give me one night, I could completely cripple the systems of the four major banks. Not only that, I could wipe out all the money in those banks. Whether it’s the wealthiest person globally or in our country, they are all inconsequential in my eyes.”
“Give me a computer, and I can drain their wealth every minute, regardless of bank accounts, stock portfolios, or investment funds. I can make them vanish into thin air.”
“So, if I want someone to be the richest person, they’ll be the richest person. I have no desire to be the wealthiest; they simply cannot surpass me.”
“Just like Sister Nian, if I want you to become the richest person, you wouldn’t need to do anything. Within an hour, I could ensure your account has billions in assets.”
Within an hour, you could become a billionaire?
Xia Mo stared at Chu Tian in disbelief, completely shocked.
This ability was still labeled as a hacker.
“Of course, that’s just one aspect of what I can do,” Chu Tian continued. “With my level of hacking expertise, Sister Xia, you can imagine and extend it to other domains. For instance, the world’s classified databases, confidential research projects, nuclear weapon launches, or even the satellites in the sky. Any network-connected system is under my control.”
Xia Mo looked at Chu Tian in a daze, unsure of what to say.
They had known each other for so long, and only now did Xia Mo realize how terrifying Chu Tian truly was.
After a moment, Xia Mo regained her composure and uttered, “Well, if that’s the case, you truly are a dangerous person.”
Chu Tian nodded his head and said, “A man is guilty of nothing. In fact, I am not dangerous, but my ability is too great, so… the country must keep an eye on me, you know.”
Xia Mo nodded and said, “This is inevitable. Since you’re already like this, the country definitely can’t ignore you, so… the power behind you is actually the country, right?”
“That’s right…” Chu Tian said, “To put it bluntly, my background is the country’s machinery. Now, the person that directly contacted me is the National Security Bureau.”
Xia Mo seemed to have thought of something and said, “So, the person who killed Zhou Jiancheng was an agent of the National Security Bureau?”
After all, she was working in the public security system, so when Chu Tian mentioned the National Security Bureau, Xia Mo immediately thought of it.
The only ones who could act without obeying the law were the NSA agents.
They were not like the police but also needed to talk about evidence and so on. The police were law enforcement officers on the surface, the work must be decent, and people couldn’t pick fault.
Agents, on the other hand, were law enforcement officers who lurked in the dark.
They didn’t need evidence. They just measured what a person could do to a country and then took direct action.
Just like what happened to Li Niannian this time, Xia Mo knew that what Li Niannian said must be true. She must have been forced by Zhou Kang, so she accidentally stabbed him to death in her struggle. After all, she had known Li Niannian for so long.
However, she believed that if it didn’t work, she had to have evidence to prove it.
So, even though she knew that Li Niannian was wronged, she could do nothing about it.
However, there was no need for an agent to deal with it. As long as Li Niannian was certain that what she said was true, she would immediately release her. As for the evidence, who would care about that?
“That’s right.” Chu Tian said, “Sister Xia, the murderer you mentioned, is staying at my door right now. He just moved there last night, but don’t look for her. It’s useless. You can’t touch her. This is definitely an order from the higher-ups. To put it bluntly, this is a case where the country wants to kill Zhou Jiancheng, and you can’t do anything. This is bound to be an open case.”
Xia Mo nodded in understanding, smiled, and said, “What? Don’t you think your sister looks like a brainless person? It’s already like this, and I’m still looking for her. Have I gone crazy?”
“That’s right.” Xia Mo continued, “Who else knows about this?”
“It’s gone.” Chu Tian said, “Sister Xia is the only one who knows, but Sister Sisi also knows a bit. She can feel that I have a background, but she doesn’t know the specifics.”
