Believe It Or Not, I Already Caught You - Chapter 68
“Why are you annoyed?” Lou Ming suddenly spoke out and asked, “You can completely pretend that you have never encountered this matter. When his family asks for your help, you can also choose not to intervene.”
“But I’ve seen it, ah. There’s no way I can pretend that I haven’t seen it, ah,” Chen Yu replied, depressed.
Lou Ming couldn’t help but smile. He reached out and tugged Chen Yu, who covered herself with her pillow. “Get up, don’t smother yourself.”
Chen Yu continued to cover herself and did not move.
“Do you know why you are annoyed?” Lou Ming asked.
“I don’t know.” Chen Yu sullenly responded.
“Because you are kind,” Lou Ming suddenly quipped.
Chen Yu moved the pillow away from her face, looked at Lou Ming and said, “I’m not kind. When I catch a ghost, no matter how pathetic that ghost is, I will still take him away.”
“That’s because you know that sending them to reincarnation is the best ending for them.” Lou Ming said, “But this matter is different. This person you’re talking about is desperately trying to save another person, and deep down you actually don’t want him to die, do you?”
“…” Chen Yu froze and sat up hugging the pillow. “I don’t know.”
“If there was a way to have the best of both worlds, would you go for it?” Lou Ming asked.
“But there is no best of both worlds.” Chen Yu said, “The Life Exchange Technique can only be used on people who are going to die, so one of them must die.”
“Since you can’t leave this matter alone, why don’t you just go and try to understand the matter at hand better?” Lou Ming said, “When you know more, maybe you will naturally know what needs to be done next.”
“What if I still don’t know what to do?” Chen Yu asked.
Lou Ming pondered over it and said, “Or you can just think of it as for me. I’m curious. What kind of relationship is it that allows that person to trade his life for the other person’s life.”
“Hmm…” Chen Yu hesitated for a moment: “But my master’s rule is that I must charge when undertaking a task.”
Lou Ming snickered and said, “Then I’ll pay you a dollar to hire you to investigate this matter, okay?”
“A dollar? So cheap, ah. Forget it. For the sake of our acquaintance, I’ll give you a discount.” Chen Yu threw the pillow, took the apple on the coffee table and began to nibble.
Lou Ming could not help but smile again when he saw that Chen Yu had finally recovered her spirit.
For a money-mad person to give him a discount and accept only a dollar, it was also considered that Chen Yu had attached utmost importance to him.
Although Chen Yu wanted to figure out what happened to Zhang Ziyang, all of this was predicated on the premise that Zhang Wenwen and the others would seek her out again.
But Chen Yu didn’t know what happened. Since she left the hospital two days ago, Zhang Wenwen didn’t look for her again, and neither did Qin Yi and Shao Hui. Chen Yu found it strange at first, but then thought that she was innocently implicated in this matter from the outset. She originally thought that since she saw it and couldn’t resolutely leave them in the lurch, she might as well try it and see if there was a better solution.
However, two days had now passed without any sudden movement from the other party. Chen Yu didn’t have the character of a eunuch, dying of anxiety when the Emperor wasn’t, so she wasn’t bothered by it. She also thought that they might have found a more powerful Celestial Master, but not necessarily so.
Hence, according to Chen Yu’s previous plan, she happily ran on the road of receiving tasks from the metaphysics network and upgrading as soon as possible.
After lunch that day, Master Mao appeared in the Lous’ courtyard again with a bronze sword. Lou Ming was surprised to see Master Mao personally deliver the bronze sword: “Master Mao, why did you come in person?”
