Live At The Murder Scene - Chapter 20
Translated by Nyx
“I don’t know! If I saw anything, I would have reported the police immediately!” The owner leaned forward and looked into his eyes sincerely and asked, “Comrade, do you have anything else you would like to ask?”
What an enthusiastic audience.
He Jueyun smiled lightly then asked, “Are there any other students that give you a strong impression?”
“There is, that girl who just went out.” The boss lowered his voice, looked out through the glass door and pointed at Qiong Cang’s location then said, “That’s the girl. She would come to me to buy some weird things. Something like a prank toy. There was one time when I saw her arguing with… the second long-haired girl who committed suicide. The two argued until their faces fumed and ears steamed. They were about to go physical. Luckily, a beautiful girl stopped them. Ahhh, that girl really was beautiful and her voice was also soft and gentle.”
He Jueyun: “Then did you hear what they were arguing about?”
“It’s between girls, what can they argue about ?” Putting his fingers on his neck, the boss imitated them vividly and said, “You’re shameless. No, you’re the shameless one. No, you’re even more shameless! You are the most shameless! Why do you want to be like this? Why should you care?”
He Jueyun was amused by him.
After he finished mimicking, the boss’ lively expression immediately reverted into normal and sighed: “It’s all hard, all hard. I see the girl outside hasn’t been very energetic recently either. Some words in school are pretty unpleasant and targeted towards her. It would be good if everything is cleared up. Yi Zhong should increase the education of students about mental health, don’t let any more incidents happen to anyone.”
He Jueyun sighed after listening: “I hope.”
The boss said: “You stay here and help me look after the store, I will go in and get the files for you.”
“Alright.” He Jueyun waved, “Thank you brother.”
Five minutes later, the boss walked out with a hard disk drive. He suddenly slowed down midway, raised his head and glanced at He Jueyun. He pursed his lower lip, his expression seemed a little hesitant.
He Jueyun smiled and said, “Say it, just say whatever you thought of, it’s okay. Maybe there are clues in it.”
The boss then said: “That girl I just mentioned, that very beautiful girl with long hair and was soft-spoken, the one who is really beautiful. Every time she comes over, there will be boys peeking around, so I am left with a very deep impression. Come to think of it, she has a good relationship with many people. You can ask her, she definitely knows more than me.”
He Jueyun: “With whom?”
“That one at the door and the two who jumped off the building.” The boss said, “Both of them used to hang out a lot before the incident. But I heard that they were originally in the same class, so it seems normal for them to hang out?”
He Jueyun raised his eyebrows, he had a faint feeling of catching the crucial point and said seriously: “Does that girl have any distinctive traits?”
“School flower,” the boss said, “It is publicly known, just ask around and you’ll find out.”
“Okay…” He Jueyun said with a smile, “Thank you, brother, it’s very helpful.”
Boss: “I’m glad I could help.”
The netizens in the Sanyao live broadcast room were very confused.
“The boss is quite straightforward. Now it seems that Wang Dongyan is a prankster and Zhou Nansong went over the limit, which led to Zhou Nansong’s mental breakdown and chose to commit suicide. She is a perpetrator of school violence and became the victim in the end. Alas.
“If everyone guessed it, it must be wrong. [🐶]”
“The player’s request is to escape the death ending. In this case, how to eliminate Wang Dongyan’s guilt is the most difficult, right? Go find the victim’s family to kneel down and apologize?”
“…Don’t, I beg you. That’s how the last player did it, and in the end it made me feel uncomfortable. What kind of headline is this? Dogs who are plotting something come out and die!”
“Do you think that big boss who knows how to behave like a dog can do something like kneel down and apologize? I think it has reached that point where she would rather just jump off the building.”
“The current evidence is too obvious, i can’t think of a second answer. However, based on my years of live broadcast experience, I don’t think it is that simple.”
A while later, He Jueyun walked out of the store. When he went outside, he saw Qiong Cang sitting on the ground staring blankly at the little flowers and grass in front of her. The clothes rack behind her is facing upwards vertically, like an searching for a signal.
He Jueyun waved his hand in front of her: “Hey.” Which channel?
Qiong Cang blinked and asked while remaining in the same position, “How’s it going?”
He Jueyun said: “I got the surveillance video.”
Qiong Cang finally reacted, raising her head in surprise and said: “There is still a surveillance video?”
From this perspective, He Jueyun’s figure looked particularly tall. He raised the hard drive in his hand and said: “The boss seems to be a fan of suspense dramas, and he is very careful. He has kept all the monitoring of the week. Sanyao will upload this data. There might be critical evidence in it.”
Qiong Cang nodded, and then fell into the same numb state as before.
He Jueyun walked half a circle around her, pondered for a moment, and said: “Oh yeah, Wang Dongyan may not be a perfect victim. Maybe she is the one who pretends to be a ghost.”
Qiong Cang calmly took the topic: “To be precise, it was the last person who pretended to be a ghost. More accurately, there is still a certain gap between being tricky and pretending to be a ghost.”
“Yes. Her roommate may… have very well surpassed her in this regard?” He Jueyun said, “The shopkeeper once saw Wang Dongyan and Zhou Nansong having a quarrel. There were related rumors against her in the school. People are also speaking about Zhou Nansong’s death. The context of the matter is still quite clear.”
The corner of He Jueyun’s mouth twitched, revealing a slightly ironic smile:”No matter how you think about it, it’s a bad debt.”
Qiong Cang did not respond.
