Lu Ying stood in place, too scared to speak.
“Cisco isnt stupid for being able to get this far!” Lin Yi said.
“Even though our operation is more refined, it wont be long before they fix the bug in the program.
Who will the market believe then”
Both of them stood still, realizing the gravity of the situation at the same time.
“Director Sun, youve been here for so many years, how come you dont even have the awareness to guard against this! Dont you know to apply for a patent first when we first came up with a new product Dont you know to guard against others when it comes to a confidential project like this Do you know what any of this means!” Lin Yi berated.
“Now that the technical data has been stolen, all our previous efforts have been in vain! Im so disappointed in you!”
Sun Fuyu did not say a word.
It was his fault, and it was only natural for him to be scolded.
It was just that over the years, there hadnt been any substantial progress in the project, which caused Sun Fuyus awareness to drop.
He had not thought about this at all.
It was already too late by the time he wanted to do it.
“This Liu Chu is too hateful.
How could he do such a thing!” Lu Ying said, her hatred for him growing deeper.

“You still have the nerve to say that” Lin Yi said.
“Its your fault for not being on guard.
Why are you blaming others Do you really think this is a harmonious society Youre taking business competition too lightly.”
“Director, theres still a chance for us to redeem ourselves,” Lu Ying said nervously.
“Although Cisco stole the results of our project, the industry hasnt released the news yet.
Their research must be in the final stage of testing.
As long as we release the results now, well still be considered the leader of the industry.”
“They didnt announce it What can you think of that they have not considered” Lin Yi asked.
“I can tell you for sure that theyve already registered a patent.
The reason they didnt announce it is because theyre waiting for you.”
Sun Fuyu and Lu Ying did not understand what he meant.
“You think that the initiative is still in your hands, but in reality, Cisco is the one taking the initiative.
When you announce the program of the control unit, theyll take out the patent and bite you back.
By then, Longxin will become the laughingstock of the entire industry, and youll never be able to raise your heads again!” Lin Yi said.
Lin Yis words made Sun Fuyu and Lu Ying realize the seriousness of the problem.
No matter how they tried to explain it, it would be useless by then.
The patent was in Ciscos hands, and there was nothing they could do to defend themselves.
Sun Fuyu, on the one hand, was fine.
Hed been working for so many years, so he could still take the pressure.
It was just that Lu Ying was having a breakdown.
It was not because Lin Yi had scolded her, it was that she had poured her heart and soul into this project.
She had gotten the directors help during the most difficult time and solved the final problem, but something like this had happened just as he was about to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
She could not accept it.
“Go cry outside if you want to.
Dont cry here, its annoying.” Lin Yi said.
“Director, Im not crying, youre seeing things,” Lu Ying said as she held back her tears.
Sun Fuyu felt bad, and he bowed to Lin Yi.
Lin, this is my mistake.
You can do whatever you want to me.
I wont complain at all.”
“Whats the use of firing you Can we recover our losses that way” Lin Yi asked
“Thatll make me feel better,” Sun Fuyu said as he blamed himself.
“Ever since the source code was written, Little Lu has basically been living in the office.
She wanted to get this project done as soon as possible, so this has nothing to do with her.
It was my mistake that caused this to happen.
Im willing to take full responsibility.”
Lin Yi waved his hand impatiently.
“Everyone, stop crying.
Youre making me look like a capitalist.
Im also responsible for this.
I didnt warn you beforehand.”
Lin, please dont say that.
Its because we were too careless that your efforts were wasted,” Sun Fuyu said.
Lin Yi stood up and patted Sun Fuyu and Lu Ying on the shoulder.
“I trust your character and your skills.
Its not a problem, but you have to learn to be vigilant in times of danger.
This is a lesson.”
“Alright, stop standing here and work with me,” Lin Yi said.
Both of them did not understand what Lin Yi was referring to.
“Cisco stole our technology, but that was only the most basic 1.0 program.
Its only ahead of the domestic chip market, and its still far from reaching the global standard,” Lin Yi said slowly.
“My original idea was to first establish a foothold in the domestic chip field before joining the international market.
But after something like this happened, we can only skip this step and go right to the international market.
Thats what I really wanted Longxin to do.”
Lin Yis words made both of them excited.
The feeling of going from Hell to Heaven made them feel illusory and unreal.
Lin, well do our best to help you!” The two said in unison.
Lin Yi took out a few hundred-dollar bills from his pocket and handed them to Lu Ying:
“We cant sleep tonight.
Go buy me a few boxes of cigarettes and coffee, or youll die of exhaustion.”
“No need, chief.
I have them here,” Lu Ying said honestly.
“Im still the boss here.
Whats the point of spending your own money for these things”
Seeing that she could not refuse, Lu Ying said, “But theres too much money here.
We wont be able to spend it all.”
“The rest of the money is for you to buy some face masks.
Im about to turn into a foul-mouthed sailor.”
Lu Ying laughed out loud.
Although she had been scolded, the chief was still very nice.
Soon, Lu Ying bought the cigarettes and coffee and used them to refresh herself.
In front of the computer, Lin Yi used all the knowledge he had on microchips and semiconductors.
Both of them were amazed by the code Lin Yi had written earlier.
They were amazed this time as well, but not for the same reason.
The main difference was that they could understand it for the first time, but they could not understand it this time.
They had reached a blind spot in their knowledge.
Sun Fuyu was not as useful as Lu Ying at the moment.
Lu Ying could not understand it either, but she could at least fan him.
Lin, if youre hot, take off your clothes,” Sun Fuyu said with a smile.
He was a little hot as well, but he was too embarrassed to say it.
“Shes still here, so I dont think thats a good idea.” Lin Yi said
“Little Lu isnt such a pretentious person.
Were all like that sometimes when we work overtime,” Sun Fuyu said with a smile.
“I happen to be a little hot as well.”
Lin Yi did not think too much about it.
If it wasnt for Lu Ying, he would not have even wanted to wear his shirt.
It was too stuffy in Zhong Hai at night.
He took off his shirt and threw it aside.
He lit a cigarette and went back to work.
“Didnt you want to take it off too Why did you stop” Lin Yi asked.
“I saw your eight-pack and stopped in that instant.”
