On October 31, 3020, as soon as Ling Hua’an arrived home, he heard noises from the kitchen.
He put the walking stick on the hook by the door and walked over fumbling.

“Yan Yu, why did you come so early?”

Yan Yu turned off the gas stove and walked to Ling Hua’an.
He looked at his injured right hand, “Lu Hao called me yesterday.”

Ling Hua’an frowned slightly and said helplessly, “He likes making a fuss, it’s not like you don’t know about it.”

Yan Yu responded softly, he walked past Ling Hua’an to the living room and took out the ointment and cotton swabs from the drawer.
After that, he approached Ling Hua’an, took his injured hand, and applied the medicine on it without saying a word.

“Isn’t it just a little burn? I’m used to it.
Don’t make such a fuss.
” Ling Hua’an understands Yan Yu’s temperament, the eight horses couldn’t pull it back to avoid trouble1.
Knowing it,  Lin Hua’an didn’t struggle and let Yan Yu do it.

“You have eight burn scars on your hand.” Although Yan Yu’s tone was light, Ling Hua’an still heard the dissatisfaction in his words.

“Big man doesn’t care about this.”

“I care!” Yan Yu interrupted Ling Hua’an.

Ling Hua’an was startled, and then asked, “Yanyu, what do you mean?”

Yan Yu’s cold eyes flashed slightly, “besides grandpa, you are the person I care about the most,  my best friend.”

Ling Hua’an breathed a sigh of relief and said with a smile, “I see.
I promise to pay attention next time and never get hurt again, it’s that okay?”

“No matter how busy I am in the future, I will come over to cook for you on time.
Even if I really can’t get out, I will order takeout for you.
Hua’an, don’t go into the kitchen again.”

“Yan Yu, when you take care of me like this, I almost think I’m an ignorant baby.
Don’t be too exaggerated, haven’t I had a good time in the past ten years?”

Yan Yu was silent for a while, “Hua’an, if it’s convenient, I want to move here.”

“It’s inconvenient.” Ling Hua’an refused decisively.
He said dumbfoundedly, “ Yan Yu, others didn’t know, but did you also forget? My place is often haunted by ghosts, and the Yin energy here is heavy.
It’s not good for ordinary people here for a long time.”

“What about you? Will it affect your body?”

“I’m fine.
When have you seen me feel sick all these years? Well, this is the end of this matter.
If the breakfast is not done, I’ll be hungry.”

Although he knew that Ling Hua’an was changing the subject, Yanyu didn’t bother anymore.
He understood that Ling Hua’an was different from ordinary people.
He couldn’t help with some things, but at least he could do a good job without delaying, “You go to wash first, the breakfast will be ready soon.”

Ling Hua’an nodded and went to the bathroom.
After washing, his arm was held as soon as he came out of the bathroom door.
Ling Hua’an was not hypocritical either and followed Yan Yu forward.
When he came to the dining table, Yan Yu pulled the chair closer and then helped Ling Hua’an to sit down.

The breakfast is millet porridge, youtiao, tea egg, and a small plate of pickles.
After he peeled the egg, he put it on the Ling Hua’an plate along with the youtiao.
Yan Yu also took his hand to point at the position of the bowl and chopsticks.
As Lu Hao said, Yan Yu really took care of Ling Hua’an in every way.

The two had a quiet breakfast, and Ling Hua’an stopped Yanyu who got up to clean up the dishes, “I’ll take care of these things, you can do whatever you want.”

“I’m not busy.
There’s Zhang Min in the company, so I don’t need to be there.” While cleaning up the tableware, Yan Yu said, “Go to sleep, and I’ll leave after cleaning up.”

Ling Hua’an knew that he couldn’t stop him, so he said helplessly, “Okay, then I’ll go to sleep.”

Yan Yu responded before he helped Ling Hua’an go to his bedroom.
Pushed the door open and then waited for him to enter.
After that, he walked back to the dining room to clean up the dishes.

***

On November 1, 3020, in the meeting room of the Criminal Investigation Team, Jiang Chengyan was organizing a case analysis meeting.
There was a sudden knock on the door of the meeting room.
Qi An pushed the door open and walked in.

“Captain Jiang, there is a new discovery.” Qin An handed Jiang Chengyan the information in his hand.

Jiang Chengyan took the information and asked curiously, “What makes you so happy?

Qi An smiled, “ When we checked the vehicle and we found a large amount of skin tissue of the deceased on the seat belt of the driver’s seat, mixed with a little blood.
We have reason to believe that this seat belt is the murder weapon that killed the deceased.”

“So the murder weapon was found? What else was found on the seat belt?”

Qin An answered truthfully, “In addition to the skin tissue of the deceased, we also found the skin tissue of Li Qiuran.”
Yao Min frowned and asked, “Li Qiuran? So Li Qiuran is really the murderer?”

Jiang Chengyan pondered for a while, then shook his head, “This can’t be direct evidence.
After all, that car is their family’s car which Li Qiuran usually drove as well.
It makes sense to leave skin tissue behind, so we can’t presume that Li Qiuran is the murderer.”

Yao Min said bitterly, “Then isn’t the clue broken as soon as it was found?

“The murder weapon is in the car, it proves that the car of the deceased is the first crime scene, and the person who can kill the deceased in the car must be an acquaintance.” Jiang Chengyang paused, and continued, “According to the clues we have now, Li Qiuran herself is the most suspected.
If she wants to get in the car, she must contact Jiang Changping.
We have investigated Jiang Changping’s phone calls before his death, and there is no record of contacting Li Qiuran.
There are only two possibilities for this situation.
First, Li Qiuran did not use her own mobile phone to get in touch with Jiang Changping, and secondly, Li Qiuran did not get in touch with Jiang Changping by phone but in another way.”

Liu Ran frowned and said, “But we checked Jiang Changping’s social account and didn’t find any records of their chatting that day.”

“Don’t forget, they are husband and wife, and it is not impossible to know each other’s social account passwords.
What if she deletes the communication records before we investigate?”

Liu Ran’s eyes lit up and said, “I’ll find someone to restore the chat logs after the meeting.”

“Jiang Changping’s last phone call was to Jiang Cheng.
According to him, he had a quarrel with Jiang Changping because of a money issue and only talked for five minutes.
Is it possible for the two of them to agree to meet and talk about it at a certain time within these five minutes?

Liu Ran opened her mouth, “Captain, we checked Jiang Cheng’s alibi again.
After dinner in the evening, he went to the chess and card room downstairs in the community.
It was around 8:30 pm and he did not leave until the next morning.
He only goes to the toilet three times in between, and it’s no more than five minutes.
So Jiang Cheng’s  suspicion can basically be ruled out.”

“Then have you found out who spread the information about Jiang Changping’s death?”

“It’s not easy to check.
After all, it’s hard finding a social account that posts the news on the Internet, where it will soon be known to everyone with the current speed of information dissemination.”

“Yes, many stars have been killed now.
Although Jiang Changping’s influence is not large, he is still well-known in Huacheng and there are many people who pay attention to him.
Besides, as soon as our criminal investigation team stepped in, nine out of ten were murder cases.
And anyone who is interviewed will know that Jiang Changping has an accident.”

Jiang Chengyan nodded, “Okay.
Let’s check the chat records of Jiang Changpin and Li Qiuran to make sure those two had no contact.
Not only Li Qiuran

Liu Ran nodded, “Yes, Captain.”

“How about the surveillance video that I asked to check before?”

but any of his recent contacts who had chatted on that day should be investigated.”

“Captain, the community where Li Qiuran is located has 30 high-rise buildings, with two units each.
The workload is indeed a bit heavy.
We have only seen half of it now.”

“Okay, then continue.
If there are no other new discoveries, that’s all for today’s meeting.
” Jiang Chengyan looked at the crowd, “the meeting dismissed.”

Everyone got up and left one after another, Jiang Chengyan thought for a while and said, “Yao Min, wait a minute.

Yao Min halted and asked, “Captain, what are you looking for from me?”

“Go to Jiang Changping’s house later and take the opportunity to find some of Jiang Xiaohan’s hair.

“Jiang Xiaohan? Captain, do you suspect that Jiang Xiaohan is not Jiang Changping’s son?” After working as a criminal police officer for several years, Yao Min understood Jiang Chengyan’s intention almost instantly.

“Well, there are doubts about this.” Jiang Chengyan obviously took Ling Hua’an’s words to heart.

Yao Min asked strangely, “Is there any basis?”

“No, just doubt.
Don’t worry, if something goes wrong, I will take responsibility.

Yao Min responded angrily, “It’s not what a captain should say! Listen to what you’re saying! Am I the kind of person who is afraid of taking responsibility? No wonder you are still a single dog at the age of 30, you deserve it!”

Yao Min sticks out her tongue after finishing speaking, then she runs to leave the conference room.

Jiang Chengyan looked at Qin An, and asked innocently,” Section Qin, did I say something wrong? No, what does this have to do with whether I’m single or not?”

Qin An smiled and teased, “Jiang team, you should review why you are still single at thirty years old?”

Looking at Qin An’s back, Jiang Chengyan couldn’t help but mutter, “What’s wrong with being single in your thirty.
A man is a flower at thirty, a man has thirty-one flowers, doesn’t mean you will have a daughter-in-law, really2.”

“Captain Jiang, it’s 8 o’clock, have you eaten yet?”

The corners of Jiang Chengyan’s mouth couldn’t help but rise, and he couldn’t hold back, and replied, “Not yet, I’ll go down right now.”

Jiang Chengyan packed up the documents on the table, picked up his jacket, and left the office.
Then he happened to bump into Yao Min who was returning from dinner.

Seeing this, Yao Min looked at the time and walked to Jiang Chengyan’s side, and whispered, “Captain, you are so right in time.
Ling Dage just went to work.”

Jiang Chengyan felt a little guilty when he heard her words, “Little girl, what are you thinking about all day? Read less of those messy novels in the future.” he scolded.

Yao Min pouted in dissatisfaction, “ Captain, you can scold me, you can’t talk about my novels, those are my spiritual food.
My Spiritual food! Do you understand?”

“Fine, fine, fine.
A spiritual food, spiritual food.
But please don’t use the people around you into it can you?”

Yao Min looked at Jiang Chengyan strangely and asked, “Captain, you haven’t figured out your own feel yet, have you?”

“What do you want to understand? Damn girl, finish your food and do your work.
Don’t think about many things all day long.”

Looking at Jiang Chengyan’s back, Yao Minsimply hated the iron for not becoming steel, and couldn’t help muttering, “This person is usually very smart, why does his head turn into an elm lump when he encounters a relationship problem? This little expression of impatience is appropriate for stupidity in love.
Tsk, it’s true that being single is not without reason.”

Jiang Chengyan excitedly came to the door of the police station but stopped when he saw the figure in front of the glass window.
