It's annyoing I want to eat people - Chapter 12
Han Chi inoculated the supernatant for further observation and purification, and then sat in the laboratory thinking about what to do in the next experiment.
He was absorbed in his thoughts when an unexpected visitor came to the laboratory.
Eh, how did the master think of coming to his laboratory? Han Chi looked at Ji Zhaoyan’s smiling face and had to pull out a fake smile to respond to him, “Professor Ji, what can I do for you?”
Ji Zhaoyan looked at him with a smile, making Han Chi get goose bumps all over his body, “There’s nothing important. I just came to check on you.”
Han Chi didn’t want to wrangle with him, stopped smiling, and said coldly, “Professor Ji has been very idle these days. If you have time, it’s better to do experiments than coming here to check on me.”
Han Chi’s words were like thorns, and Ji Zhaoyan was naturally uncomfortable to listen to them, but he couldn’t help it. He wanted to inquire about something from Han Chi. It was hard to fight with him for the time being.
At the dinner table the previous night, he tentatively asked his father about the zombie Han Chi mentioned.
Ji Hong took a bite of the meal, chewed it unhurriedly, swallowed it, and said, “Why did you suddenly think of it? Didn’t you all object at the meeting that day?”
For the time being, Ji Zhaoyan didn’t want to tell his father about meeting Yan Han that morning, so he just perfunctorily said, “when I read the paper today, I suddenly thought of it again, and then the idea took root in my mind, so I was very concerned.” Ji Zhaoyan thought for a moment, and continued, “Dad, do you think it’s possible for one or two zombies to mutate?”
Ji Hong didn’t take it to heart, and replied while eating, “It’s not impossible. Look at the living environment of the zombies. If the living environment of the zombies has factors that cause them to mutate, it is not impossible to find one or two mutated zombies.”
“For example: radiation area,” Ji Zhaoyan answered.
Ji Hong nodded, swallowed the last bite of rice, and said, “Physical factors, chemical factors, biological factors, there are many factors that cause mutations.”
Ji Zhaoyan stared at the rice in the bowl, showing a look of surprise. If that was the case, then Yan Han was very likely to become a breakthrough in their vaccine research.
No, it was his breakthrough.
He must independently develop a vaccine, so that his father would look at him with admiration and be proud of him.
But how would he catch this mutant?
Ji Zhaoyan couldn’t think of a way, so he came to Han Chi’s laboratory the next day.
Ji Zhaoyan said, “I’ve been busy experimenting lately, so I didn’t have free time. Hey, by the way, how is your experiment progressing recently?”
Ji Zhaoyan was obviously waiting for him to talk, but Han Chi was too lazy to talk to him. He didn’t answer as he was busy looking down at the report.
Ji Zhaoyan glared at him fiercely and held back his anger.
“Hey, Professor Han, the female zombie you mentioned in the meeting last time…” Ji Zhaoyan said halfway, stopped again, and looked at Han Chi with a smile.
Han Chi raised his head and asked, “What’s the matter?”
“Where did you meet the female zombie in Yunjing City?”
“Didn’t you take the lead in opposing the idea at the last meeting? Why are you interested in it now?” Then he bowed his head and turned over the paper.
“At that time, I was very hot-headed and didn’t think too much. Later, I thought about your PPT at the meeting. I always felt something was strange, but I couldn’t understand what was strange. This morning, I suddenly figured out that the female zombie in your PPT looks a little familiar. She seems to be… our colleague from Yunjing University, do you remember her?”
Han Chi raised his head, looked at him expressionless, shook his head and didn’t speak.
“What’s the name? I remembered it this morning, and now I forgot it,” Ji Zhaoyan pretended to try to remember while tapping the table with his index finger. Suddenly, he knocked on the table and said in a high voice, “Yan…Yan… Hmm, why did I forget it again?” He said with a distressed look, but kept looking at Han Chi’s expressions.
“Yan Han,” Han Chi looked at him and answered. He almost forgot that Ji Zhaoyan was also a teacher at the Institute of Virology at Yunjing University. Yan Han had always been in the limelight in their university, and her academic research ability was too strong to say. The teachers at the Institute of Virology should have been impressed with her, and it was not uncommon for Ji Zhaoyan to recognize her.
“Right, right, right.” Ji Zhaoyan quickly realized, “It seems that you also remember her, did you know that the female zombie you met in Yunjing City is Yan Han?”
“I didn’t pay attention before, but now that you mentioned it, I remembered it now,” Han Chi continued to reply blankly, without any changes on his face.
Ji Zhaoyan let out an”Oh” and said, “Later, I thought about it. It’s possible for zombies to mutate. For example, the environment in which it used to be, there are factors that cause it to mutate, such as the radiation area and chemical industry area. So I came to ask you where you met Yan Han in Yunjing city. I was considering whether to draw up a detailed arrest plan and submit it to the superior.”
For a moment, Han Chi didn’t understand what medicine Ji Zhaoyan was taking.
“I don’t know the specific location. I met her at night. The power in Yunjing city stopped early. At night, the whole city is dark, so I can’t tell the direction.”
“I see,” Ji Zhaoyan revealed disappointment in his tone. “Oh, by the way, some of the things you said at the last meeting were not very clear, and I didn’t understand it. You said that Yan Han was able to control her behavior well and retained human consciousness. What behaviors do you infer from it? Can you tell me specifically?”
Han Chi looked at Ji Zhaoyan sitting on the experimental table and wondered: Why did he suddenly pay so much attention to this matter?
He was thinking about how to answer him for a moment. Suddenly, the stopwatch hanging on the experimental table rang..
He breathed a sigh of relief at the bottom of his heart and thought that he would finally stop talking to him. He could tell that Ji Zhaoyan was trying to confuse him, but he couldn’t figure out what his purpose was. He was only thinking about how to find a breakthrough in Yan Han’s cells, and he didn’t bother to guess Ji Zhaoyan’s purpose.
“Sorry, it’s time for my experiment. I’m going to do the experiment in the next lab. I’ll answer your question another day.”
With that, Han Chi left without looking back, leaving Ji Zhaoyan looking at his back quietly.
Ji Zhaoyan saw that Han Chi was wary, so it was a bit difficult to get things out of his mouth. He stood in Han Chi’s laboratory for a while, and then left angrily.
