On November 2, 3020, Jiang Chengyan, who had insomnia, got up tired.
Last night, he saw two figures through the glass window.
The man called Yan Yu who taking good care of Ling Hua’an also the two of them have an unparalleled tacit understanding.
All kinds of pictures appeared in his mind over and over again, like a needle that stabbed him.
Making him face this strange kind of feeling.

Looking at himself in the mirror, he thought of the gentle smile on Ling Hua’an’s face when he was with Yan Yu yesterday and a sourness appears in his eyes.
He mumbled bitterly, “Could it be that Yao Min, that damn girl was right?”

He turned on the faucet and washed his face.
The chaos on his head cleared up and then he looked into the mirror again, when he remembered the way Yan Yu looked at him.
Although Yan Yu hides it well, he still feels there was a kind of hostility.
When two unfamiliar men meet for the first time, the only thing that can make each other hostile is only affection, so Yan Yu is definitely not a simple friend to Ling Hua’an.

“I didn’t expect that I would be jealous too.” Jiang Chengyan wiped his face and sighed, “”If so, I like to chase after him.
But he is a man.”

Looking at Yan Yu’s appearance, Jiang Chengyan could guess that he, himself would not be able to confess.
Jiang Chengyan knew what he was afraid of.
He was afraid that he would not even be able to make friends in the future.

Jiang Chengyan went out of the bathroom, looked at the clock on the wall then took out his mobile phone to send a message to Ling Hua’an, “Hua’an, have you gone back? I got up early today.
What do you want to eat, I’ll bring it to you.”

Jiang Chengyan looked at the phone and waited nervously.
After a while, the message alert sounded.
He quickly clicked on the voice message, “Don’t bother.
Yan Yu should be ready to get it for me.”

Jiang Chengyan was bubbling with sourness, but he pretended that he was fine, and replied, “ Well, then you go back and be careful.”

Ling Hua’an, who was on the bus, curled his lips slightly, and said, “Yan Yu said he would come to pick me up, and Captain

Jiang doesn’t need to worry.”

Hearing this, Jiang Chengyan felt even more uncomfortable, and he snapped, “Jiang Chengyan, Jiang Chengyan, you are also the captain of the criminal investigation team, why didn’t you think of picking him up.
That damn girl is right, you deserve to be single!”

“If there is Yan Yu to pick you up, then I can rest assured.
Let’s… see you tonight.”

Although he couldn’t see Jiang Chengyan’s expression, Ling Hua’an could still sense the emotion in his words from his tone.
The corners of Ling Hua’an’s mouth continued to rise, and he replied, “See you tonight.”

Actually, after Ling Hua’an sent the message yesterday, he didn’t know that Yan Yu was coming.
Even if he knew, Ling Hua’an didn’t really care.
After all, Yan Yu is one of his few friends and also his trusted person.
In his opinion, there is no need to hide anything from Yan Yu.

Jiang Chengyan took a deep breath to suppress

Beep

The door was opened, Ling Hua’an pushed it and walked in.
Yan Yu hurriedly turned off the fire and greeted him from the kitchen.
He took each thing from Ling Hua’an hands to its place.
“You came back late today, what happened?”

the sourness in his heart.
He picked up his jacket and went out.

Ling Hua’an was stunned, “There are more people taking the bus today, so I was a few minutes late.”

Yan Yu said lightly, “I’ll pick you up in the future.
It’s not safe to take a bus.”

“No need.
I’m blind.
It’s too late to avoid others who are rushing forward.”

“I’m coming over to cook anyway.
It’s just right to pick you up and drop you off on the way.”

Yan Yu was silent for a while, then said, “Hua’an, it’s been three years, taking care of you has been a part of my life.
Besides, I like this kind of life, it’s very peaceful and fulfilling.”

“But if you do this, it will make me feel I owe you.
” Ling Hua’an sighed.

“We are friends, don’t worry so much, and I don’t think you owe me.

“Yan Yu…””The porridge in the pot is almost done, I’ll go take a look.”

Ling Hua’an shook his head, turned around, and went to the bathroom.
After a simple wash, the two had breakfast together.

“Hua’an, after these two days of investigation, there are some clues.

“You said.” Pushing the empty bowl in the middle, Ling Hua’an looked in Yan Yu’s direction.

“Li Qiuran’s father’s name is Li Jian/Guo.
He is addicted to alcohol and has a history of domestic violence, which is the reason why his ex-wife divorced him.
I found that Li Qiuran had been treated in a psychotherapy clinic during college.
She had serious violent tendencies and had abused and killed small animals.”

“Violent tendencies? Ling Hua’an frowned slightly and said, “It should be influenced by his father.
But the people around her didn’t notice it, which is enough to show that Li Qiuran is good at disguising.
No.
It’s not that no one notices.
Jiang Xiaohan, who gets along with her day and night should have noticed it.”

“Li Qiuran had a boyfriend in college.
She met Jiang Changping in her senior year, and then she broke up with her previous boyfriend.
After graduating from college, she then married Jiang Changping.
I suspect that Li Qiuran and Jiang Changping meeting was planned by her a long time ago.”

“Why are you so suspicious?”

“Instinct.”

Ling Hua’an smiled, “you sound more and more like me.”

Yan Yu also curved the corners of his mouth, “Cinnabar makes you red.1”

“I think it’s more like ‘pitch makes you black’.1” Ling Hua’an shook his head, feeling amused before continuing, “What is the name of Li Qiuran’s boyfriend in college? How long they had been in love, and are they still in touch now?”

“Yao Jiang, they are classmates and have been in an ambiguous relationship since sophomore year, but Li Qiuran never admits her romantic relationship with him.
Since Li Qiuran and Jiang Changping were together, they have cut off contact with Yao Jiang.
Because they broke up, Yao Jiang took pills in a suicide attempt.
But then he disappeared after graduating.
Everyone said that he should have been returned to his hometown.”

Ling Hua’an pondered for a while, and said, “Yan Yu, if possible, check this Yao Jiang.
I always feel that this person disappeared too suddenly.”

“Okay.
Go to bed, it’s getting late.”

“You should also pay attention to rest, otherwise a weak Yang energy will attract dirty things.”

“I know.
Don’t worry.”

***

In the office of the criminal investigation team, Yao Min hurriedly approached Jiang Chengyan with a copy of information, “Captain, Jiang Xiaohan’s DNA result has come out.”

Jiang Chengyan took the information and read it, “Jiang Xiaohan is really not Jiang Changping’s son.”

Yao Min said with a complicated expression, “Then Li Qiuran’s suspicion is getting bigger again.”

“Before Liu Ran said that Li Qiuran had an ambiguous relationship with a male classmate during her college days, what was his name?”

“His name is Yao Jiang.
Because he has the same surname as me, so I remember it more clearly.”

“Bring me Yao Jiang’s information.”

“Yes, Captain.”

Liu Ran suddenly stood up, and looked at Jiang Changyan excitedly, “ Captain, I found something.”

Jiang Chengyan walked over quickly and asked, “What did you find?”

Liu Ran pointed his hand to the computer, “Captain, look, this is the chat record I found between a person named ‘Flying Fish’ and Jiang Changping at nine o’clock on the day of the incident.”

Flying fish: Husband, are you coming back tomorrow?

Jiang Changping: I’m in the car repair shop downstairs, and I’ll be back in a while.

Flying fish: Husband, I have something to tell you, I’ll go look for you.

Jiang Changpin: If you have something to say, wait for me to get back home.
Hanhan can’t be home alone.

Flying fish: Hanhan is asleep, don’t worry.
I will go downstairs.

“So this ‘flying fish’ is Li Qiuran.” Jiang Chengyan stood up and said, “Liu Ran, Wang Bin, you two go to Heping Community and find this repair shop.”

Liu Ran and Wang Bin looked at each other and responded, “Yes, Captain.”

As soon as Liu Ran and Wang Bin went out, Yao Min walked over with the information and said, “Captain, the information you want.”

Jiang Chengyan took it over and looked at it, frowned slightly, and said, “Why does this photo look familiar to me?”

Yao Min looked over and mumbled, “Captain, when you say that, I also feel a little familiar, as if I’ve seen it before.”

Jiang Chengyan looked at the photo and tried to recall when he saw him.
After thinking for a while, he finally remembered.
He hurriedly walked to the office and took a document from the drawer to compare it.
Followed by Yao Min who came in, she said in surprise, “It’s actually him! Captain, I get it.
The reason why he faked his identity is to sneak into the Bolang Bar and spy on Jiang Changping and Kong Fang.”

“It seems that Yao Jiang has always been in contact with Li Qiuran.
Yao Min, go get in touch with the Ancheng Criminal Investigation Team and ask them to assist us in investigating Yao Jiang.”

    “Yes, Captain.”

***

At midnight, the bell at the door of the grocery store rang, but the door didn’t move.
Wang Lei walked in through the door, came to Ling Hua’an and greeted, “Laoban, I’m back.”

Ling Hua’an asked bluntly, “How is it, did you find anything?

Wang Lei said in excitement, “ Yes.
Today, someone named Jiang Cheng came to Li Qiuran, and Jiang Cheng said he knew what Li Qiuran had done.
He threatened Li Qiuran to give him all the paintings in the gallery, otherwise, he would go to the police.
Li Qiuran didn’t believe it at first, so Jiang Cheng showed him a photo of Li Qiuran and a man.
She handed something to the man.
Li Qiuran’s expression changed when he saw the photo.
But she quickly covered it up, and then kicked Jiang Cheng out of the house.”

Ling Hua’an asked, “what did Li Qiuran give to that man?”

“The photo passed so quickly, I didn’t see it clearly.
But it must be a very important thing, otherwise, it’s impossible to make Li Qiuran change her facial expression.”

“What happened later? What did Li Qiuran do?”

“Since Jiang Cheng went there, Li Qiuran seemed a little absent-minded, and even burned her hand while cooking.  After putting Jiang Xiaohan to bed, she took out a phone card from a book on the bookshelf and made a phone call.
She cried and said that Jiang Cheng found out what she did, threatened her and she don’t know what to do.
After talking for around five minutes, she hung up the phone, wiped his tears as if nothing had happened, and looked exactly like usual.”

Ling Hua’an was stunned for a while and said, “It seems that Li Qiuran has an accomplice.”

“I think so too, and this person must have a deep relationship with her.
Laoban, you didn’t listen to her pitiful tone at the time, even a man can’t stand it…”

The ill wind suddenly disappeared, followed by a roar of Jiang Changping from inside the bell.
He said in pain,  “Why, why did you lie to me? Why lie to me ……”

Linghua’an responds calmly, “It’s a cause and effect.
You will reap what you sow.
Deception is still a deception after all.”

The cries of “woo woo woo” echoed in the store.
Ling Hua’an, who had listened to it a lot, did not have the slightest fear, but looked very calm.
Every grievous soul has a heartbreaking story.
After listening and seeing it, even if it was nothing to do with him the sadness will always follow him.
In order not to shorten his lifespan, Ling Hua’an must train himself to face it calmly.

***

On November 3, 3020, in the interrogation room of the Criminal Investigation Team.
Li Qiuran sitting in a chair with eyes downcast and hands slightly clasped, looking calm.

In the monitoring room next door, Jiang Chengyan was carefully observing Li Qiuran’s every move.
Yao Min beside her said impatiently, “it’s been drying her for an hour.
But she does not even look a little agitated, this Li Qiuran is really not simple.”

Jiang Chengyan smiled, “ right, let’s go to meet her.”

The door in the investigation room was pushed open, Jiang Chengyan and Yao Min entered one after another and took their seats.
“I’m really sorry, the team was a little busy and delayed a little bit.”

Li Qiuran also smiled and said thoughtfully, “It’s okay.
You also handle my husband’s case.  I can’t thank you enough, so why should I care about this?”

“I came to Ms.
Li today just to learn more about the situation, and I hope you can answer truthfully.

“If Captain Jiang has anything to ask, I will fully cooperate as long as I can help you solve the case.”

Jiang Chengyan pondered for a while before asking, “Ms.
Li, do you think Jiang Changping has the possibility of cheating?”

The same question was asked by Jiang Chengyan before, and Li Qiuran denied it almost instinctively at the time, but today a struggling look appeared on her face.
After a long silence, she sighed and said, “Captain Jiang, before answering this question,  I hope you can promise me that you will not reveal what I am going to say next, otherwise I will not say it.”

Jiang Chengyan and Yao Min looked at each other and said seriously, “Don’t worry, we have regulations and will not disclose any information about the case outside.”

After another burst of silence, Li Qiuran started to open her mouth.
“Actually, I knew about Changping early on.
At

“So Jiang Xiaohan is Jiang Changping’s son, right?”

Li Qiuran’s eyes flickered, then he lowered her gaze.
After a moment of silence, she said, “Actually, Xiao Han is not Changping’s biological son.”

At the beginning of our acquaintance, he told me the truth, that he…he is gay and doesn’t like women, but because of his family, he has to get married.
As for me, I have suffered from domestic violence since I was a child, and I wanted to escape from that house every day.
He said that he could provide me with a safe haven, on the condition that I do not ask him about it.  I agreed without even thinking of anything.
After graduating from college, we got married and the two of us lived very peacefully.”

Jiang Chengyan was stunned, and then asked, “Then Jiang Xiaohan ……”

“Changping’s parents have been urging us to have children since we got married.
So we had sex to have Hanhan.”

Jiang Chengyan was stunned again and couldn’t help but smile bitterly in his heart, this Li Qiuran was completely out of line.
A very difficult character to deal with.

“Ms.
Li, what you said seems inconsistent.”

“This kind of thing is really hard to reveal.
Any woman with a sense of shame will not take the initiative to speak about this, so Captain Jiang I also hope that you can understand.”

Jiang Chengyan threw the pen in his hand on the table, leaned back, and asked, “Then tell me what’s going on here? Who is Jiang Xiaohan’s biological father?”

Li Qiuran was silent for a while, and said, “Changping is gay, he is not good at women but his parent forced him so hard.
So we came up with the artificial insemination method.”

“Artificial insemination? As far as I know, artificial insemination can use the sperm of a spouse, why is it useless?”

Li Qiuran lowered his head, stretched out his hand to smooth out her scattered hair, and said calmly, “The survival rate of Changping sperm is low, and it doesn’t work after a few tries and there is no way but to use someone else’s.”

“Then who is Jiang Xiaohan’s father, do you know?”

Li Qiuran shook his head, “The hospital has regulations not to disclose information from both parties.”

“Which hospital did you perform artificial insemination at?”

Li Qiuran clenched his fist slightly and said, “Huacheng People’s Hospital.”

“On 22nd October, between 10-11 pm, where are you?”

Li Qiuran clenched her hands again, “We go to bed on time every night at nine o’clock, and the 22nd is no exception.”

“Are you sure?”

Li Qiuran nodded without hesitation and said, “I’m sure.”

“Li Qiuran, you should understand our system. ‘’Leniency to those who confess, severity to those who resist’.  I hope you can tell us the truth and fight for a chance of leniency.”

Li Qiuran looked up at Jiang Chengyan and said, “Captain Jiang, are you suspecting that I am the murderer?”

“You do have a motive for murder, don’t you?”

“Motive for the murder? I don’t understand what Captain Jiang meant.
Changping is my umbrella2.
Without him, I will return to that house again and bear the violent treatment of that man.
Why should I do it?”

“Because you became attached to Jiang Changping and couldn’t stand the fact that he had another person outside.
Out of jealousy, you have the intention to kill.
This is your motive for the killing.”

“Captain Jiang, don’t you think such a motive for murder is somewhat untenable?” Li Qiuran sneered, “Also, how can you people who live in greenhouses3 understand the feelings of being subjected to domestic violence every day like me? It is impossible for me to let myself go back to that home again because of anything.”

“You don’t need to go back, because you have already found someone to replace Jiang Changping.” Jiang Chengyan paused and said, “No, Jiang Changping was destined to be replaced from the beginning.
It should be more appropriate to say like that.”

“I don’t understand what Captain Jiang means.” Li Qiuran looked straight at Jiang Chengyan.

“It doesn’t matter if you don’t understand now, it will all make sense later.” Jiang Chengyan opened his laptop, pulled up the surveillance video of Building 10 of Heping Community.
He stood up then walked over to Li Qiuran, saying “Li Qiuran, this person is you.”

Li Qiuran’s pupils shrank, and then she said calmly, “Indeed, she resembles me.
But unfortunately, she is not me.”

Jiang Chengyan smiled, “Do you think that with a mask and hat, we were unable to notice it was you?”

“It’s not me.
Do you want to accuse me wrongly with such a video?”

Jiang Chengyan looked at Yao Min.
She understood and said aloud, “Although this dress does not look conspicuous, it is a new product of XNE this year, and it has only been on the shelves for a month.
The XNE brand store is only available in Huacheng Department Store.
As long as you go there to check the sales records, and then compare the surveillance video, you will know whether you have bought it or not.
It shouldn’t be so coincidental that someone who lives in Heping Community has bought this brand of clothes, and looks a lot like you.”

Li Qiuran smiled and said, “Officer Yao, haven’t you heard the phrase ‘There is no story without coincidences’? Not to mention the similar body shape, even the people who look very similar are not absent.
I do have this dress, but this dress didn’t sold to me alone.
Is it too imprecise for you to assume that it is me based on this?”

“You…” Yao Min looked at Li Qiuran in annoyance.

Jiang Chengyan patted Yao Min to calm her down, “you’re right.
There’s no uniqueness.
It’s really not accurate enough.”

Li Qiuran didn’t speak, she looked at Jiang Chengyan and smiled.

Jiang Chengyan once again pulled out another video, showed it to Li Qiuran, and asked, “Then look at this person, is that you?”

The angle of the video just caught Li Qiuran’s face.
Although she was wearing a mask and hat, still clear enough to see her eyes and eyebrows.

“Captain Jiang, I have already said that after 9 pm on the 22nd, I have already gone to bed.
I don’t know why you are wasting my time with these specious photos.” Li Qiuran’s calmness successfully wavered.

Jiang Chengyan zoomed in on the position of the woman’s wrist in the video, “This tattoo on the wrist should look familiar to you.”

Li Qiuran shrank his hands subconsciously and remained silent.

Jiang Chengyan put the computer on the small table in front of Li Qiuran and turned around to take out a photo from his notebook, “Although the tattoo in the video is a bit blurry, now that the technology is developed.
We have successfully restored it.
Do you recognize the pattern?”

A blue butterfly jumped out of the paper, very beautiful.

Seeing Li Qiuran’s silence, Jiang Chengyan continued, “This kind of butterfly is very beautiful and special.
It is called the Goddess of Light.
A kind of butterfly living in ML is also one of the ten most beautiful butterflies in the world.
Am I right?”

Li Qiuran remained silent, but her clenched hands revealed her nervousness.

“The body part of this butterfly is slightly raised.
It should be because of a scar that makes this tattoo unique.
Li Qiuran, these coincidences that come together… is not really a coincidence.”

“Yes, I did go out on the night of the 22nd, but I didn’t kill anyone.” Li Qiuran saw that he couldn’t get away with it and finally confessed.

Jiang Chengyan took the laptop back to his place and said, “Then tell me, where did you go and why did you lie?”

Li Qiuran was silent for a while, and said, “That day □□4 went to get money from me again.
I was in a bad mood, so I couldn’t help but send a message to Changping and ask if he would be back tomorrow.  He said he was in the car repair store downstairs, and then I went to find him.”

“Why didn’t you go out from the 1st floor of building 5 instead of walking out from the 1st floor to building 10 and choose to take the stairs?”

“I also wanted to take the elevator, but the elevator stopped on the 30th floor for a long time and did not come down.
I was in a bad mood and got impatient, so I took the stairs.
I remember it was raining and I didn’t bring an umbrella.
So I walked from 1st floor to building 10 which is the unit building closest to the parking lot.”

The explanation made sense and Jiang Chengyan had to admire Li Qiuran’s wit, he then asked, “Then why did you lie before?”

“Because I’m afraid you suspect that I’m the murderer.
Changping is dead, and I’m the only one left in the family.
Hanhan is still young and can’t do anything without me.” Li Qiuran said with guilt.
“I’m sorry, Captain Jiang, for causing you trouble.”

A wry smile evoked in the corner of his lips.
If he didn’t know who is the murderer, he would have believed her.
“Then did you see Jiang Changping? And what did you do after you met him?”

“I did.
We talked for a while until the car was repaired.
He said something happened, and drove away in a hurry then I went home.

“What time when you get back home? He didn’t say anything?”

Li Qiuran said with a bitter smile, “It’s almost eleven when I get home.
He didn’t say anything.
But seeing that he is in a bad mood, I think he had a quarrel with his boyfriend.”

Jiang Chengyan looked at Li Qiuran with a playful look, “”Did you get in the car at that time?”

“En.
We chatted for a while in the car.”

“Where are you sitting when you get in the car? ”

“Passenger seat.”

“According to the owner of the car repair shop, after you got in the car, the car drove away.
The direction was not to return to the community, and you didn’t get out of the car on the way.
Can you explain it?”

“It must be that he remembered it wrong.
The car did drive a certain distance, but I got out of the car at the intersection.
It was cloudy that day, there was no moon and there were no street lights at that location, so it was normal to not see clearly.”

“What happened to your hand? Injured?”
Li Qiuran shrank his hands subconsciously and said, “I accidentally burned myself while cooking yesterday.”

“Do you know who is Jiang Changping’s gay lover?”

“I don’t know.
I promised not to ask him about it.”

“Aren’t you curious?”

“I’m not curious.
I wasn’t curious before because I just wanted to live my life well.
Now I’m not curious because I don’t want to make myself uncomfortable.”

“I heard that you had a boyfriend named Yao Jiang in college?”

Li Qiuran was stunned and immediately said, “he and I are just ordinary friends, not lovers.”

“Are you still in touch now?”

“Since I went out with Jiang Changping, we have cut off contact.”
“That means you haven’t seen each other since then, right?”

 Li Qiuran hesitated for a moment before nodding quickly.

Jiang Chengyan took out a document, stood up and came to Li Qiuran, and said, ”This is a DNA report, it clearly states that the DNA similarity between Jiang Xiaohan and Yao Jiang is 99.89%, it is definitely a father-son relationship.
How do you explain this?”

“Impossible!” Li Qiuran snapped and immediately responded, “I was artificially inseminated in the hospital, how could it be such a coincidence? It can’t be such a coincidence!”

Jiang Chengyan smiled, “Li Qiuran, you’re really smart.
From the time we came in, you see our moves.
The answer is not only flawless but also can be well-rounded.
You knew that we wanted to convict you.
So, there will be no breakthrough that can be found.
But the net of law is wide open, I believe that even if the crime is well thought out, it will definitely leave traces.”

“Although there is a confidentiality agreement in the hospital, as long as we check, we will know who is the owner of the sperm that artificially inseminated you.
I don’t believe there is such a coincidence in this world, where Yao Jiang donated sperm and it happened to be used by you.”

Li Qiuran changed her facial expression, after a short consideration she changed her tone as well, “Captain Jiang, I admit that I had sex with Yao Jiang.
It was also to conceive a child also to help Changping get rid of his parents’ entanglement.
But, afterward, I broke off contact with him.
I know nothing about his current situation.”

Jiang Chengyan looked at Li Qiuran in silence.
After a while, he closed his notebook and stood up, “Li Qiuran, I am willing to waste time with you here, because Jiang Xiaohan is still young.
I want to give you a chance to surrender.
I hope you can grasp it.”

Seeing Jiang Chengyan go out, Li Qiuran said in a loud voice, “Captain Jiang, I didn’t kill anyone.
You have let me out.
Hanhan is about to leave school, I have to pick him up.”

“We will arrange it for Jiang Xiaohan, don’t worry.
” Jiang Chengyan who walked to the door and suddenly stopped, “Li Qiuran, I forgot to tell you that we found Jiang Changping’s partner.
And what he said is the exact opposite of you.”

“Is he the one who framed me?” Li Qiuran, who had been calm, suddenly became excited and said, “Did he frame me?”

Jiang Chengyan said nothing, pushed open the door, and walked out.
Meanwhile, Yao Min glanced at Li Qiuran before following to walk out.

After closing the investigation’s door, Yao Min groaned, “Captain, why don’t you interrogate her? As soon as I saw that smug look on her face, I got angry.
I thought she was innocent before, I should have poked my eyes out.”

Jiang Chengyan responded in amusement, “You haven’t been a criminal police officer for a day or two.
What kind of criminal you haven’t seen before, why are you still so restless?”

Yao Min complained, “The suspect I have seen before is not so difficult, but she can round up any clues we have.
If this continues, we won’t be able to convict her.”

Jiang Chengyan sighed, “Who told you that we don’t have any direct evidence yet? Now, all we have to do is find Yao Jiang.
He should be the breakthrough for us to solve the case.”

“What about Li Qiuran? We don’t have enough evidence now.
Even if we keep her, we can only do that for 48 hours at most.  We must release her after 48 hours.”

“Are you not familiar with the regulation of the police forces? What else do you want to ask? If you don’t want her to walk out of the police station, move and try to find Yao Jiang or direct evidence before the time comes.
Otherwise, you can only watch her get out of the police station.”

find someone hiding within 48 hours? Isn’t this looking for a needle in a haystack?”

“Even if you are looking for a needle in a haystack, you have to find it.” Seeing Yao Min’s brows wrinkled, Jiang Chengyan couldn’t help but smile, “can’t you move your little head to think that Yao Jiang kept his name incognito for Li Qiuran’s sake.
Over the years, it can be seen how deep his feelings for Li Qiuran are, plus Jiang Xiaohan is his son, do you think he will be far away from them?”

“That’s right.” Yao Min’s eyes lit up, and then she lowered her face and said, “Even so, it’s still looking for a needle in a haystack.”

“Go to Jiang Xiao Han’s kindergarten and check the surveillance camera.
Maybe you can get something.”

“Okay.
I’m going.”

As soon as Yao Min walked to the door of the office, she bumped into Ling Hua’an.
She said in surprise, “Ling Dage, why did you come here?”

Ling Hua’an replied with a smile, “I’m here to find Captain Jiang.”

The sound of ‘Ling Dage’ made Jiang Chengyan prick up his ears.
He walked to the door in three or two steps, looked at Ling Hua’an, and said happily, “Hua’an, why are you here?”

“Hua’an? Hey, Captain, how come you are familiar with Ling Dage?” Yao Min bumped Jiang Chengyan’s shoulder with an ambiguous smile.

Jiang Chengyan*’s face became hot, he retorted saying, “Damn girl, do your job.”

“Okay, okay, okay, I promise not to be a light bulb.” Yao Min whispered in Jiang Chengyan’s ear and said hello to Ling Hua’an before leaving quickly.

Ling Hua’an couldn’t see, but his hearing was relatively good.
Although Yao Min had deliberately lowered her voice, he could still hear the conversation between the two.
A smile flashed in Ling Hua’an’s eyes, and he said warmly, “Captain Jiang, I have something to do with you, is it convenient for you to chat alone?”

“Convenient, convenient.”Jiang Chengyan hesitated before walking over to Ling Hua’an and reaching out to support his arm, “Hua’an, I’ll help you to my office.”

Ling Hua’an did not refuse, and let Jiang Chengyan lead him to his office.

“Ling Dage is here.”Everyone greeted each other, Ling Hua’an nodded politely and smiled.

Jiang Chengyan pushed open the door of the office and helped Ling Hua’an in.
Waited for him to sit down then went to close the door.
“Hua’an, wait a moment, I’ll pour you a glass of water.

“Huh, where’s the tea?” Jiang Chengyan rummaged through the cupboard looking for tea, but he couldn’t find it for a quite long time.

Ling Hua’an said aloud, “Captain Jiang, I’m not thirsty.  Sit down, I have something to tell you.”

Jiang Chengyan felt embarrassed, he sat quietly across Ling Hua’an, “Well, I’ve been a little busy with work recently, so I put my things at random.
I can’t find a lot of things.”

Ling Hua’an smiled and asked bluntly, “Captain Jiang, how far has Jiang Changping’s case progressed?”

Jiang Chengyan was stunned for a moment, and said with some difficulty, “Hua’an, we have a rule that we cannot disclose the facts of the case until the case is conclusive.”

“Captain Jiang, because the matter is urgent, I will not hide it.” Ling Hua’an pondered for a while before continuing, “Actually, before Jiang Changping died, he had a hunch that something would happen to him.
He said that if something happened to him, he asked me to make sure to help him find out the truth.
Unfortunately, I am blind, so I can only ask Yan Yu to investigate.
Yanyu found out that the murderer of Jiang Changping was probably Li Qiuran, and Li Qiuran’s ex-boyfriend Yao Jiang was his accomplice.”

Jiang Chengyan frowned, “The criminal case should be handed over to our criminal investigation team.
It’s easy for you to deviate from your private investigation.”

Ling Hua’an was stunned for a moment, then frowned and said, “Captain Jiang, although we are not members of the police force, we still have basic legal knowledge.”

Seeing Ling Hua’an frowning, Jiang Chengyan suddenly came back to his senses, and quickly explained, “Hua’an, I didn’t mean that.
I meant that the criminals facing the criminal case are very dangerous, and I’m worried about your safety.”

Jiang Chengyan’s explanation was obviously very far-fetched.
Although Ling Hua’an loosened his brows, his tone was much colder, “Captain Jiang, I am also entrusted by others.
139****1212, that’s the number is Yao Jiang’s cell phone number.
That’s all I have to say, I’ll go first.”

Seeing Ling Hua’an standing up and about to leave, Jiang Chengyan hurriedly grabbed his wrist,  “Hua’an I… I’m sorry.
It’s just my professional habit.
I didn’t mean to doubt you.
Don’t be angry, okay?”

“Captain Jiang, I’m not angry, you did the right thing.” Ling Hua’an struggled, but couldn’t break free, and reminded, “Captain Jiang, what you need to do now is not to tangle with me, but to find Yao Jiang as soon as possible.”

Jiang Chengyan was startled but didn’t let go of Ling Hua’an’s hand, “I know, I will send you out and then arrange the task.

“No need.
I’m blind, but my legs are still pretty good.” Ling Hua’an tries to break free again, “Captain Jiang, you can let go.
I’m sure you don’t want your team members to see us pulling and tugging.”

Jiang Chengyan’s stubbornness also emerged.
He tightly clenched Ling Hua’an’s wrist and said, “So what if they see it? You’re mad at me, do you think I care about them?”

“Captain Jiang, don’t you think you’re no different from a rascal?”

“As long as you’re angry.
Let a rascal be a rascal then.” Jiang Chengyan said like a broken jar.

“Yesterday, Jiang Cheng went to see Li Qiuran.
The two talked for ten minutes.
After that, Jiang Cheng cursed and left.
I think there should be some connection between the two of them or Jiang Cheng has something important about Li Qiuran in his hand.
With Li Qiuran temperament, if the latter possibility is true, it is most likely Jiang Chen will be in danger.
So, Captain Jiang… Instead of dwelling on whether I’m angry or not, it’s better to protect Jiang Cheng.
Who knows there will be unexpected gains.”

Jiang Chengyan was taken aback, and then asked, “How do you know this?”

“Captain Jiang, how do I know, it doesn’t matter.
The important thing is that Jiang Cheng’s situation is likely in danger.
So what will you do? I believe Captain Jiang can make a correct judgment.”

“Are you going back to the store or going home? “

Ling Hua’an was stunned by the question before answering, “ Going back to the store.”

Jiang Chengyan letting Ling Hua’an’s hands go, walked to the door and called out, “Liu Ran, take Hua’an back to the store.”

Liu Ran got up and went to the office, smiled, and said, “Ling Dage, I’ll take you back.”

Ling Hua’an didn’t say anything more, and let Liu Ran help him out from the criminal investigation team and returned to the store.

Jiang Chengyan stood at the window and watched Ling Hua’an return to the store, then he turned around, “Li Tong, Zhang Liang, you guys keep an eye on Jiang Cheng.
He might have evidence of Li Qiuran’s crime on him.
As long as we keep an eye on him, maybe we can not only get the evidence but also catch Yao Jiang who has been hiding in the dark.”

Everyone’s eyes lit up, and Li Tong said aloud, “So Captain means, is it possible that Yao Jiang might kill Jiang to silence him?”

“I can only say there is a possibility, but whether Yao Jiang will act or not, we must ensure Jiang’s safety, understand?”

“Understand.”
