Live At The Murder Scene - Chapter 22
Translated by Nyx
Qiong Cang thought of this name carefully and a strange emotion arose in her chest.
The unusual feeling was certainly not because of the false name, but the person behind the character.
The story line of [Murder Scene Analysis] was adapted from a real case many years ago. All the characters were using aliases, their appearance has been greatly adjusted. Also, some backgrounds have also been blurred but it is still easy to infer the time period and location of it. After all, every region had different college entrance examination sites and different popularly discussed political issues.
This should be the virtual world more than 30 years ago
Xiang Qingxi’s age and circumstances, even if Sanyao blocked Qiong Cang’s memory for the fairness of the game, she could still easily infer her character profile.
Qiong Cang subconsciously did not want this beautiful girl to be found out of any unbearable past and yet, at the same time, felt that this kind of notion was too naive so as to influence her thinking and render her incapable of being clearheaded. After all, she herself didn’t fully understand this girl, one could even say that she was a stranger to her. So she shouldn’t make assumptions.
It was rare for Qiong Cang to have such contradictory and useless thoughts. Although she just came to know the other person for a short period of time, it left a deep impression of her. Just like how a shadow tails a person, this impression lived with her entire slow and long life. To the extent that it became a constant way of thinking that took root into her thoughts.
No matter how smart she was, she still had fundamental shortcomings, as any human should.
So even when Qiong Cang first saw Xiang Qingxi, she already had an intuition that the other person would be a key NPC, but she avoided her subconsciously.
Therefore, when Qiong Cang happened to encounter this girl who kept flashing in her mind at the door of the dormitory, a shred of discomfort flashed across her mind too.
Xiang Qingxi also saw her, quickly walked over and asked, “Dongyan, are you okay?”
Qiong Cang heard her voice in the game for the first time. Clear and soft, it fits her image very well. There was anxiousness in her tone when she asked her which made people clearly feel her concern.
She looked like a gentle person.
Qiong Cang froze, and shook her head.
Xiang Qingxi stared at her for a while, then asked: “Why didn’t you go to class today?”
Qiong Cang said: “I don’t want to go to class.”
Xiang Qingxi: “Did something happen last night? I heard loud noises coming from next door.”
Qiong Cang: “It’s nothing.”
Xiang Qingxi hesitated, and then said, “Are your roommates alright? You didn’t go to class today. When I went over to ask them, their reactions were weird”
Qiong Cang still shook her head.
Xiang Qingxi frowned slightly, her face was sad: “Are you really all right?”
Qiong Cang looked over the girl’s shoulder at the cute poster stuck on the anti-theft door behind her and asked, “Is there anyone in your dormitory today?”
Xiang Qingxi: “There’s no one.”
Qiong Cang: “In that case, can I sleep in your dormitory for a while?”
“Yes you can…” Xiang Qingxi asked in a low voice, “Are you also not going to class at noon?”
Qiong Cang said: “I’m tired.”
Xiang Qingxi’s worried expression didn’t seem to be fake. Her lips were opened, as if she was about to say something but then closed it with some hesitation. In the end, as if she suddenly thought of something, she fumbled in her pocket and found a small handful of orange-flavored hard candies.
She grabbed Qiong Cang’s hand and placed it on her palm.
Xiang Qingxi was completely different from the person in Qiong Cang’s memory. She didn’t know if Sanyao made too many adjustments to this role, or if her mother was like that at that time.
Even so, she found it difficult not to connect the two. This person also liked to use this method to console and reward others, which she felt was both perfunctory and childish.
Qiong Cang looked down at the orange candy in her palm and asked, “Do you like this candy very much?”
“Yes.” Xiang Qingxi smiled, “Don’t you think this kind of candy is delicious? Eating it can make people feel good, and you can buy it in school for a cheap price.”
Qiong Cang clenched her hand, put it in her pocket, and said, “Thank you.”
Xiang Qingxi said, “I’m going to class now, so take a good rest. If you don’t want to go back, you can stay at night.”
She left the key to Qiong Cang, waved her hand and said: “I’m leaving now, the Yanzi is still waiting for me outside.”
Xiang Qingxi ran away all the way, and because of her appearance, the live broadcast room kept popping with different pink bubbles.
What little angel is this? It doesn’t look like a bad person. “
“As long as I go in the opposite direction of netizens, I’ll be right. She is the murderer!”
“This character modeling is so biased. Were the other people not worthy? Even Sanyao staff can only get a character that looks like a weird middle-aged uncle with no artistic detail.”
“It is certain that she is the key person, given that most of them know it. Though it is not certain whether she is the murderer, or whether she is a good person.”
