Live At The Murder Scene - Chapter 1
‘Hello. Doctor Fang Qi.”
Fang Qi, “It’s me.”
He Jueyun, “Hello, I’m calling from Sanyao headquarters. I’m the person in charge of [Murder Scene Analysis].”
As if he had been waiting for the call, Fang Qi said with a calm tone, “You’re late. The live broadcast of the trailer was supposed to be at 9:30 a.m; it’s now 9:45. I don’t think it’s reasonable to have Qiong Cang’s mental assessment last for almost half an hour.”
“We received some new opinions just now and are working hard to investigate it. As you know, [Murder Scene Analysis] is a special, ultra-realistic simulation game with great influence and high standards. Something uncontrollable happening in the scene is the last thing we want.” He Jueyun clicked open the file related to Qiong Cang and adjusted the size of the window.
“You are her psychologist. Right now, I need to reconfirm some information with you and get an update on Qiong Cang’s condition.”
Letting out an inaudible sigh, Fang Qi took a breath and said, “Alright.”
He Jueyun’s line of sight lingered around the person’s photo on the top right corner, then tapped with his index finger to enlarge the photo.
The person in the photo was very beautiful, however, no one would take notice of her facial features at first glance. To put it better, her indifferent attitude that keeps strangers from getting close makes others easily ignore her appearance.
Her skin appeared somewhat sickly pale. So much so that the light blue veins around her eyes were even noticeable through the high-quality picture. Even though her partially closed eyes gave her a listless look, she gave off an unignorable and unexplainable air of danger.
Of course, it may just be his own psychological reaction.
This was a person who had no surname and had a strange name.
The column ‘Former names’ wrote “Qi Wu”, which did not sound any better.
“Qiong Cang, female, 26 years old.” He Jueyun read aloud according to the information, “Unemployed.”
Fang Qi added, “Was teaching at a university a month ago and had just resigned.”
He Jueyun then continued, “She doesn’t have a criminal record, but the evaluation given by the police is that she should be observed.”
“An unreasonable and groundless evaluation. Looking at her now, she’s just a very smart person and has no antisocial tendencies.”
Fang Qi continued, “According to the big data, psychopathy has nothing to do with a person’s IQ. They also should not infer Qiong Cang’s personality and conduct from the people around her. They never tried to understand her.”
“She was evaluated by three psychiatrists. Two of them said that even though she had passed the tests, they were not sure about the validity of the results. Only you…” Raising his eyelids and looking up, He Jueyun made his raised eyebrows seem even more fierce.
“The evaluation you gave: Tests passed, normal health. Able to participate in the game.”
“What’s the issue?” Fang Qi asked. “She completed the tests in full accordance with Sanyao’s requirements. They came up with the questions, but at the same time determined that they were useless. Don’t you think that’s too much? Adding additional remarks even though she had complied with the rules you have created, makes everything pointless. I’m not that kind of person.”
He Jueyun then asked, “In the process of testing, did she show anything out of the ordinary?”
Fang Qi hesitated a little, then answered truthfully, “She’s extremely calm.”
“She is overly calm, showing little psychological alteration no matter what topic I bring up. She exchanges opinions by exploring all possible angles, with little subjective emotions.”
Fang Qi added, “Even when she’s talking about her private matters.”
He Jueyun asked, “So, can you guarantee the accuracy of your evaluation?”
