Live At The Murder Scene - Chapter 15
Translated by Nyx
Don’t mention the netizens, even He Jueyun was also shocked.
He Jueyun: The time period of the two incidents were very close, are you sure your conjecture is correct?
Qiong Cang: I’m certain of it. According to the science teaching progress, as well as the inferred language recitation date and English dictated annotations. It is impossible that all three are wrong.
He Jueyun: Is this not very important information? Why was it just mentioned incidentally?
Qiong Cang: Since there is no further evidence at the moment, no valid conclusion can be inferred. There are no clues that I can understand, it’s all just casually done. Is there a problem?
Qiong Cang: Wasn’t I the one to lead you through the challenges? As long as I know, it will be ok.
He Jueyun was lost for words.
He Jueyun: No problem. I just want to ask, are there still any unimportant clues that can be mentioned right now?
Qiong Cang: Actually there is nothing more, right?
Qiong Cang: I received a pack of orange-flavored fruit hard candies today.
He Jueyun quickly replied. However, his point was also so different.
He Jueyun: Candy, do we send it to the forensic section?
Qiong Cang: It’s not necessary.
He Jueyun: Why?
Qiong Cang: I ate it.
He Jueyun: You’re fine?
Qiong Cang: .
He Jueyun: “….”
“Hey! Is typing really short sentences the trend these days? Is it that difficult to type?”
“Can’t stand them….”
“What can you lose by typing one more word?”
“I really like watching them talk. There is always someone who switches channels off guard. Why can they complete the cross-platform communication so quickly?”
While Qiong Cang talked nonsense with He Jueyun for quite some time, there happened to be a noise of people chatting outside the dormitory room. The students who had finished their evening self-study came back one after another.
Their room was located on the first floor of the dormitory, which always tends to be noisy.
Wang Dongyan’s three roommates appeared shortly afterwards, they opened the door wearily and walked in.
Qiong Cang sorted out the things on the table, changed into pajamas, and sat down on the bed halfway.
If there was no plot related to the case, this period of night would pass by quickly.
Her roommates dropped the books on their beds and sat to rest for a while. They just kept silent and relaxed for a while and grew lively again. They joked with each other, lined up in the restroom to wash and prepared to go to bed.
The relationship between the three could be seen to be very good. They were all roommates, but no one came to talk to Qiong Cang. They might not want it to be obvious but their evasive behavior was deliberately hard to ignore in the eyes of Qiong Cang.
Such a small space, and yet they would not even glance in her direction.
However, during the period before Wang Dongyan’s suicide, she did behave strangely. It’s no surprise that she didn’t get well with her friends.
In situations like this, an ordinary player would discreetly inquire for some news from their roommates, trying to mend the relationship. Qiong Cang had no such plan.
She covered herself with the quilt and laid down to rest.
After a short while, the lights in the dormitory were turned off.
Qiong Cang hadn’t slept much in the past two days. Under the influence of the environment, she really started to feel sleepy. Just as she closed her eyes, her consciousness began to dwindle, making her unable to perceive the passage of time correctly.
Not knowing how long time had passed. Unusual sounds suddenly reverberated in the calm night.
The sound was finely distributed. At first, it was indistinct then gradually became clear.
The sleepiness that Qiong Cang had just accumulated was successfully dispelled by the irregular but increasing unusual noise.
She concentrated and heard that the sound came from a position close to the foot of her bed.
It might be under the bed, might be at her feet or some other nearby area. Realizing this suddenly made her stop breathing.
It was a sound similar to the gnashing of teeth, and it was impossible to distinguish what kind of material was rubbing against each other. Under the cover of the night, everything in the surrounding was magnified and was being clearly conveyed into Qiong Cang’s five senses.
Any faint sound gave her a kind of tension that something dangerous was drawing near.
Qiong Cang slowly opened her eyes.
The dormitory was very dim as the lights in the corridor had been turned off, but there was still light coming through the windows.
It was a faint yellow light, which was emitted by some light source, passed through the glass, and casted the image on the security door.
From where Qiong Cang laid, when she opened her eyes, she could directly see the dappling of light and the shadow in the figure of a human.
Qiong Cang was frightened and felt the breath that she held in her chest now hurts.
The girl on the upper bunk by the window suddenly asked in a small voice, “Are you asleep? Who is gnashing their teeth?”
Someone replied: “I am not asleep.”
“It’s not me either.”
Qiong Cang was silent.
After a while, someone took the initiative to ask: “Hello? Dongyan, are you awake?”
Qiong Cang: “Awake.”
After she finished speaking, there was an unnatural pause of the sound in the corner. The speed of the gnashing sound grew faster and there were more crunching noises. It was all but certain that this place was haunted.
The familiar sound was like a fuse, igniting a bomb that hadn’t been detonated for many years. Qiong Cang felt her adrenaline shot up instantly. Her heartbeat accelerated and her blood pressure elevated. She had goosebumps, raising the hair across her body. Her body fell into a state of intense fear.
