Thinking of this, Zhou Zhen glanced secretly at Zhou Jianqiang. Zhou Jianqiang looked calm but his eyes flickered slightly, indicating that he was also very nervous.
Zhou Zhen immediately understood that the father of this body might know something!
He took a deep breath and immediately replied, “Yes!”
Lu’s team did not speak again. He raised his arm wearing thick leather gloves. The seemingly soft leather turned into strong metal in an instant. With a series of slight movements, a gigantic mechanical hand several times larger than a normal person’s palm opened up and pressed directly on Zhou Zhen’s chest.
Then, Lu’s team looked towards the smart bracelet on his other wrist.
A few seconds later, the smart bracelet flashed a soft green light.
Lu’s team nodded slightly and looked at Zhou Jianqiang, calmly saying, “There are no signs of infection, it seems they are indeed the same person.”
Old Zhou, routine check, don’t think too much about it.”
Zhou Jianqiang visibly let out a sigh of relief, then smiled and said, “I understand, Lu Team is also concerned about the safety of our Binhai City.”
“If there’s nothing else, can I take this kid back now?”
He said while opening the car door, forcing Zhou Zhen into the passenger seat, and quickly went to the driver’s seat himself.
Soon, the car started, flew into the air, and left the place behind.
Lu’s team stood there, watching the departing vehicle before slowly retracting his gaze.
“Huala la… Huala la…”
His phone rang, Lu’s team answered the call, “Hello?”
“Is it clear?”
Soon, he frowned slightly, “What! The name on the data isn’t Zhou Zhen?”
“Alright, I got it.”
“I’ll be right there!”
Lu’s team hung up the phone, then slightly bent his knees and exerted force in his legs. Boom!
A violent sonic boom echoed through the sky, and the shockwave spread out in all directions. The entire small forest shook violently, and a group of birds screamed and flew in all directions.
As the leaves and dust fell slowly, Lu’s team had already disappeared.
The high-rise buildings were like towering mountains, retreating rapidly from the car window.
The interior of the white flying car also appeared somewhat outdated. However, in Zhou Zhen’s eyes, it still exuded an indescribable sense of technology.
Zhou Jianqiang leaned back on the seat, opened a bottle of water, and drank it silently. The unmanned steering wheel skillfully adjusted its angle, dodging a crowded off-road vehicle and brushing against the side of a several hundred-storey building, heading towards the front.
“You have entered the range of Jufu Building. The owner’s facial recognition has not been verified. Visitors please proceed to the 99th floor property office to register…”
An unexpected electronic sound suddenly sounded, along with the flying car moving away from the building at the same time.
Zhou Zhen looked out the window and the high-rise building seemed like an ancient dense forest, with flying cars shuttling like busy birds and beasts.
Occasionally, huge lakes appeared. The lakes were surrounded by lush vegetation and served as the city’s green lungs.
The streets were neat and clean, the buildings were shiny and new, and the three-dimensional transportation was orderly… Occasionally, passing by scenic spots and historical sites would awaken Zhou Zhen’s memories.
For some reason, he felt that this city seemed to be missing something…
Zhou Zhen withdrew his gaze and looked at Zhou Jianqiang, wanting to ask something, but didn’t know how to start.
After hesitating for a moment, he still tentatively asked, “Dad…”
“We’ll talk at home!” Zhou Jianqiang put down the water and sternly interrupted him.
Zhou Zhen immediately realized what was happening and didn’t say another word.
The flying car passed through several buildings and like finally leaving a mountain range, the buildings in front suddenly became shorter.
A number of buildings with only tens or dozens of floors appeared. They were obviously more densely packed than the taller buildings, and there were few large green lungs. The exteriors were dim and there were signs of damage and cracks in many places, indicating a lack of maintenance.
For Zhou Zhen, this area was more familiar.
He even saw a few buildings that seemed familiar.
The flying car continued to race forward, and the two of them remained silent.
After half an hour, the flying car began to descend and after a complex intersection, it smoothly entered an extremely outdated neighborhood.
For Zhou Zhen, this neighborhood did not differ much from the neighborhoods of a hundred years ago. When the flying car approached, it didn’t even prompt for visitor registration, only calmly announced, “Official announcement, three digital infected individuals are on the run, residents please be cautious…”
Soon, the flying car entered the neighborhood and stopped under one of the buildings.
Zhou Jianqiang unfastened his seatbelt and got out of the car quickly.
Seeing this, Zhou Zhen hurriedly followed.
After both of them got out of the car, the white flying car restarted and headed towards a nearby parking space.
At this time, no one else was coming and going. They quickly reached the elevator and went to the 28th floor.
The elevator door opened, revealing a long and narrow hallway. The wall next to the fire hydrant had a half-open window, which provided insufficient light but was enough to see the entire hallway and the three entrances of this unit. One was the side of the elevator, one was the front, and at the end of the hallway were three households.
Adjacent to the elevator, there was also a slightly ajar light yellow door with a green “Emergency Exit” sign on it, which was the fire exit.
Zhou Jianqiang walked out and stood in front of the black door on the side of the elevator. He looked up above the door frame, and a faint light flashed in the seemingly empty space. The next moment, the overhead light turned on and a soft electronic voice sounded, “Master, welcome home!”
“Today’s weather is sunny, the outside temperature is 39°C, humidity is 12%, UV rays are strong, and the AQI index is 35. The indoor temperature is 24°C, humidity is 45%, and the AQI index is 0… If you need adjustment, please call the intelligent home system Xiaoz.”
“Xiaoz is always ready to serve you!”
With the voice broadcast, the large door opened silently, and the lights behind the door turned on in turn, illuminating a simply furnished living room.
Zhou Jianqiang immediately walked in and sat on the sofa in the living room. The opposite white wall immediately displayed a scene of the universe, and in the center was a huge time display, seemingly waiting for the owner to wake up, ready to play videos at any time.
Not paying attention to the considerate smart home system, Zhou Jianqiang took out a cigarette from under the coffee table and lit it skillfully.
At this time, Zhou Zhen observed the whole house discreetly. He was very unfamiliar with this place and didn’t even know where his own room was…
After a brief silence, Zhou Jianqiang took a puff of his cigarette, exhaled a series of smoke circles, and then firmly pressed the unsmoked half into the ashtray, saying very seriously, “Don’t ask so many questions!”
“I’ll handle things from now on.”
“You go rest in your room!”
Hearing this, Zhou Zhen immediately felt a bit embarrassed. Go back to his room… which one was it?
Just as he was thinking about it, a buzzing sound rang out.
Zhou Jianqiang took out his phone from his pocket. After seeing the caller ID, his brows furrowed, but he quickly answered the call, “Hello…”
“Oh, I see…”
“Don’t worry! I’ll quickly gather the money…”
“Alright! Alright! That’s all for now…”
He hung up the phone, immediately got up, and looked at Zhou Zhen, saying, “I’m going out.”
“You stay at home properly, don’t go anywhere!”
After saying that, Zhou Jianqiang didn’t wait for Zhou Zhen’s reply and hurriedly put on his jacket, leaving in a hurry.
