“Yeah, this is also the reason why we, the police, still haven’t made a move on them! Although they are only an outer organization of the Situ family, their behind-the-scenes relationships are too complicated! A single move will affect a lot of thing. There are people of the Situ family’s faction in both the political world and the business world. Once they are put on the list to be targeted, I think that the Situ family will definitely not sit there and ignore it. When that happens, the pressure for us, the police, might be…” Zhong Yang sighed and said.
“Then you’re just going to let them continue down like this?” Although I had the powerful Three Rock Gang behind my back, I couldn’t help but feel disgusted by the Daxing Gang’s actions. That was because although the Three Rock Gang that Guo Qing led was a group of mobs in name, they never did anything like forcing prostitution, selling drugs, robbery or anything that harmed the civilians.
“Right now, we’re just waiting for a chance. On one hand, we’re gathering a lot of criminal evidence on the Daxing Gang, on the other hand, we’re waiting for the Situ family’s side. If the Situ family gains a competitor, we can use the time when the Situ family is busy with their opponent to take the Daxing Gang down in one go!” said Zhong Yang.
I nodded, I also understood that he was troubled. However, this chance wasn’t nonexistent; even if it was, it could still be created! It seems like the fellow who stuck a foot in when I was getting nostalgic with my first love was called something like Situ Liang, and seems to be someone from the Situ family. Fighting over a woman with me, see if I play you to death. If you’re going to blame someone, blame your family’s dog, the Daxing Gang that pissed me off!
Seeing me smile evilly, Zhong Yang asked, “Say, Liu Lei, you can’t be thinking of dealing with the Situ family, right?”

(Show us your support by paying Re:Library a visit!)
“I have that intention!” I nodded.
“Xiao Liu, I also understand some of your circumstances. Since we’re friends now, I won’t hide anything and will just be blunt! Xiao Liu, I know you have some money, but as an older brother, I want to tell you that your money is just a tiny amount compared to the Situ family’s! The Situ family’s financial ability is beyond your imagination! You know the Hurun Billionaire list, right! The richest man in China on there is just on the surface, our Huaxia has such a long history, and there are plenty of ancient families whose true wealth is unimaginable!” Zhong Yang advised.
I didn’t say anything after hearing that, perhaps their Situ family was truly that rich, but so what! No matter how much they had, it was a like a droplet in comparison to the ocean that is the profits of the Shuguang Corporation in a year, it can’t be compared at all!
However, I’ll pay them back after I deal with Chen Zelong.
As we chatted, we dragged the topic onto the army. Zhong Yang said, “Oh yeah, Old Wu, did you manage to decipher the signal you intercepted a few days ago?”
“Quite a few professionals from national security and elites from the army looked at it, but they couldn’t manage to figure it out. They suspect it’s a telegraph from enemy countries, but right now, there isn’t such a combination in the world. I think it’s either some sort of signal interference. Otherwise, it’s from aliens!” Fatty Wu’s imagination was truly great.
My interest immediately arose with the mention of aliens! That was because, in my previous life, the company I was in had helped the American government crack a lot of unknown coded telegraphs from space, contributing immensely to USA’s military, scientific, and technological development. Since I was coincidentally one of the main people in charge of this project, I did have a lot of knowledge about cracking telegraphs from space. Thus, I pretended to answer casually, “What telegraph, can I take a look?”
“Oh yeah, I completely forgot, boss, you’re a computing genius! I’ll let you have a look!” With that, he took out a printed piece of paper from his briefcase.
“I fear that isn’t too good, right? These are military secrets…” I said.
“Hai! What military secrets, those professional already finished looking at it. They said that there is no possibility of cracking it, that’s why it has no militaristic value. This is just a piece of scrap paper. I am just curious and want to see if it’s something from aliens. That’s why I didn’t throw it away!” Fatty Wu explained.
Hearing Fatty Wu’s explanation, I let out a sigh of relief. Otherwise, if it was truly some sort of national secret, not only would I have to be taken to national security, I would cause trouble for Fatty Wu as well. Fatty Wu’s words must have meant that this was identified as something useless, and thus it is out of militaristic protection.
Upon receiving the piece of paper to have a look, my expression couldn’t help but change! Fatty Wu actually guessed it right, this was an encoded signal from aliens looking for help! This sort of code was impossible to decipher with the current technology! In my original era, this sort of code was already rather widely known in a certain group of scientific workers; it was a type of very frequently used code in the universe, just like our Morse Code!
I took a deep breath and calmed down, then continued reading. On the telegraph, it claimed that they were two organisms from a planet in the Animas Galaxy. While exploring the universe, they failed their spatial jump and accidentally entered into another dimension of the universe. When they came out, they arrived on Earth. Since the fuel of the spaceship had already been used up, they were unable to go on their return voyage. There wasn’t much remaining food left either, it was only enough to last the two of them one more month. That’s why they used the barely remaining energy from the spaceship to send out a few signals requesting help, in hopes that someone on the planet would see it. I looked at the coordinates on the telegraph. ****, it’s actually the South Pole! No wonder nobody found them…
“How is it, Xiao Liu, can you understand what’s written on it?” Seeing that I was so focused on the paper, Fatty Wu quickly asked in curiosity.
“No. I just feel like these look like the sigils that daoists have drawn in the past…” Since it was a huge issue, I didn’t speak the truth. That was because with the current scientific knowledge, if the public knew about aliens coming to earth, it might cause widespread terror. More importantly, those western militaristic countries might capture the two aliens for research! This would threaten those two aliens a lot!
I memorized the coordinates on it, then returned the paper to Fatty Wu. Fatty Wu didn’t treat it as much and threw it back into his bag. From the looks of it, he didn’t have any hope of deciphering the code on it!
I continued to smile during the rest of the meal, but I started worrying about the two alien lifeforms. My response to Fatty Wu and co. become perfunctory. During the meal, I used an excuse to go to the bathroom. The journey to Hong Kong was not pressing, but the two aliens’ issue could not be dragged on!
