Chapter 317 I Will Help You
As soon as he finished speaking, the door of the central control room opened. The director’s sharp and stern voice sounded again, “What are you waiting for! Check what kind of flaw it is and fix it as soon as possible!” Gatlin turned around and looked at the central control room. More than a dozen computers in the room gave out alarm sounds at the same time, and screens constantly flashed red light, indicating an error. Everyone lowered their heads and quickly typed with a serious look on their faces. The sound of typing came one after another. From time to time, some people rushed into the central control room, and some rushed out in a hurry. Looking at the buzz there, Gatlin frowned. He pursed his lips and took a step towards the central control room subconsciously. But before he could go on walking, he felt someone pulling him. Following the direction of the force, he looked down and saw a small hand grabbing the corner of his clothes.
“Kid?” Gatlin asked Joey in confusion. Joey took a look at his hand holding the corner of Gatlin’s clothes and then withdrew it calmly. He raised his head slightly, looked up at Gatlin and asked, “Do you want to help them?” Before he could answer, Joey added, “You even don’t know how to recover data. Now the hacker invaded the system, and even they can’t solve it. What can you do to help them? To make trouble for them?” “……” Being teased ruthlessly by a three-year-old child, Gatlin twitched his lips slightly but could not find a reason to refute him.
After all, Joey was right. He even couldn’t beat a three-year-old child. “But everyone is busy. It’s not appropriate for me just to stand here. Even if I bring them some water or documents, it will be better…” “But the director you mentioned just now said you were useless and was going to fire you.” Joey said clearly and mercilessly. Hearing this, Gatlin pursed his lips into a straight line, frowned and began to hesitate. With the hand in the pocket, Joey turned his head to look at the computer screen nearest to him. The messy code was still flicking, and the warning sound was accompanied by the sound of the keyboard,
constantly entering his ears. Now the hacker only attacked their outer security system, but if they didn’t fix the flaw as soon as possible, the firewall of the system in the lab would be broken in five minutes at most. At that time, the hacker could easily take anything he wanted from the lab’s database. “One minute has passed. What’s going on here?” The director looked at the second hand on his watch, which kept running, but found that the situation did not ease at all, so he snapped. “Sir, it is too covert. We can’t track it.”. “Oh no, sir. The hacker has broken through our second defense line.” “Sir, it’s a call from Mr. Salazar.”
Beads of sweat began to form on the staff’s forehead, and their hands didn’t stop for a moment. However, no matter how hard they tried to repair the flaw, the hacker hiding in the dark could always break through it at the last moment, as if he was provoking them.
The director answered the phone from James, walked aside and kept explaining. In just a minute, his face changed for several times. “Yes, yes, Mr. Salazar. Don’t worry. We will handle it well. It’s not a big deal. We can’t solve it soon.” James was not here, but the director always held the phone, nodded and bowed to him who was on the
other end of the phone. “I still need to go in and help them.” Gatlin looked at the messy central control room and said.
“Are you sure?”
“Yes.” Gatlin nodded seriously, he said, “Yes, you are right. The director doesn’t like me very much. He thinks that I can work here just because of nepotism and always wants to fire me. But now, the lab is attacked by a hacker. If I don’t try my best to help, in case that the hacker finally steals all the important data in the database, all the efforts we have made every day and night in the past two years will be in vain.” “……” Joey listened quietly without interrupting him. The corners of Gatlin’s mouth twitched, showing a little embarrassment. “Although I know that I may not be able to help them even if I go in. But it’s better than just watching here. If the important data is stolen in the end, at least I have do something with them and won’t feel guilty.” “Since you have decided that, I won’t stop you.”
With a smile, he walked to the central control room without hesitation. But after two steps, he suddenly
stopped and turned to look at Joey. “Kid, can you…” “No, I can’t.” Before he could finish his words, Joey interrupted him and refused. Hearing that, Gatlin was stunned for a while. “I haven’t finished my words -“.
“I know what you want to say. You want to ask me if I can help you.”
Gatlin couldn’t help but sigh at the kid’s intelligence. He nodded and wanted to say something more. But Joey added, “I won’t help you. It’s none of my business. Besides, there are so many competent people here. It’s unreasonable for a three-year-old child like me to help you.” “…… You are right. ” Gatlin kept silent for a moment, knowing what Joey said was reasonable. He really had no reason to ask Joey to help them. With a faint smile on his face, Gatlin said, “The lab may be in a mess later. I have to go in to help them, so I can’t take you out. You have to go out by yourself. You can go out from this direction, turn left and go straight all the way to the elevator. Take this work card.”
Again, the work card was handed over from Gatlin to Joey.
Then he walked towards the central control room. “Wait a minute.” Joey stepped forward and stopped him. “?” Looking at the work card in his hand, Joey sighed in his heart and decided to help him to the end! Besides, he hadn’t seen an arrogant hacker who kept provoking others for a long time. He was a little eager to compete with him. Joey handed the work card to Gatlin, looked up at him and said, “Although I won’t go in because it has nothing to do with me, I will help you.”
