Chapter 1000 Timely Rescue
For a long while, nobody spoke.
After the meals were served, the three of them started to eat separately.
Yves looked at the two people beside him, something strange flashed across his eyes.
’Speaking of which, about the mastermind behind the last fire, I think we may need Young Master Xander’s help.”
Hearing this, Rosalie and Xander were both stunned.
Xander even stopped mid-mouthful and raised his eyebrows to look at
Yves. “Oh. why do you say so?”
Yves said, “The employee that was bribed had something happen at home. This was an internal matter that is only known within the research institute. However, that person was able to pinpoint that employee precisely, and targeted his weakness, which shows that the mastermind has thoroughly investigated our research institute.”
His statement was much more rigorous than the last. “Or, this person had investigated every employee in the institute, and finally selected that person to do the deed.”
This was the first time Rosalie heard this statement from him, and she could not help but feel a chill in her heart.
‘The medicinal materials had been transported into the storage room the day before, and a fire broke out the next day.’
‘If that person had really investigated everyone in the institute, then…’
‘How powerful would that person be to lock down on Old Abe in such a short period of time?’
The previous speculations appeared in Rosalie’s mind again, making her a little dazed.
Xander seemed to find it a little interesting. “What do you mean, Dr. Graham?”
Yves said firmly. * To be able to do this, the mastermind behind this must be quite formidable. I suspect that with the size of our research institute, it is impossible to find out who that person is. So, if possible, perhaps we could ask for your help, Young Master Xander.’
Hearing this, Xander stared at him meaningfully for a few seconds.
Just when Yves thought he had succeeded in his instigation, Xander suddenly asked, “Is it possible that this is an inside job, so that’s why they are so efficient?”
Yves’s expression froze imperceptibly.
‘Xander’s words… He truly doesn’t know the truth?’
On the side, Rosalie’s voice sounded in time, “Not possible.”
Rosalie looked at Xander firmly. “This kind of harmful action, if there is no unavoidable reason, the people in our research institute will not do this.”
Hearing her say that, Xander took his eyes off Yves.
“I’m just guessing as well. Since Miss Jacobs said so, I’ll take back what I said, and help you check it out.”
Rosalie pursed her lips and thanked him. “Then I’ll have to trouble you, Young Master Xander.1’
Xander simply nodded.
In just a few minutes, Yves had already drenched in sweat.
Fortunately, Rosalie made a timely rescue.
Otherwise, he was about to shoot himself in the foot.
Thinking of Xander’s words and deeds just now, Yves closed his eyes, his eyes full of confusion.
‘Could it be that Xander really noticed something and was testing me just now?’
He forcibly calmed down and wanted to take another look.
However, until the meal was over, Xander never mentioned the fire again.
Rosalie also seemed to be very worried and did not take the initiative to speak again.
When they came out of the restaurant, the three of them had different thoughts.
Rosalie thought that Xander would leave, but he unexpectedly stayed in the research institute until evening.
All afternoon, they discussed the usage of that batch of medicinal materials.
Fortunately, when it was time to get off work, they got a mutually satisfying answer.
After work, the three came out of the institute side by side.
Rosalie said goodbye to the two and turned to get in the car.
Just as she tried to start the engine, the ignition would not kick in.
