It was only 8:00 at the time. There weren’t many people on the street. The two arrived opposite the kiosk and saw that the auntie was sitting with her back to the door, laughing and knitting as she watched a TV series.
The streetlights were spaced far apart, and the section that the store was in was completely dark.
When the two walked to the front of the kiok, the auntie still hadn’t noticed. Chen Shi said, "Excuse me!"
"What do you wish to buy?" The auntie stood up.
"We are the police and want to verify your testimony."
"Oh, you’re asking about the Japanese that were killed! I really didn’t see Lu Baoqiang going out that day."
"Auntie, we just stood opposite the kiosk for five minutes. You didn't look back and see us at all. You said that you were facing this street all night. We can't believe this kind of testimony."
The auntie looked embarrassed, "I didn't watch TV that day."
Chen Shi glanced at the paused screen on the TV, "Really? Could you show us the broadcast record on the set-top box?"
"Okay, I admit that I was watching TV that day, but when I said that Lu Baoqiang didn't go out, I have proof. It’s because he often buys things here, and he’d say hello every time he passes by."
"Auntie, can you please have some common sense? If he went to kill someone that day, would he greet you?"
"How could he kill someone! The kid is only twenty-five this year and had struggled really hard to move up to becoming a featured extra from an extra. He’s very ambitious. He even wrote a poem. Ah, let me think about it. Something like “One ‘Wang’, one ‘Lu’, both are called ‘Baoqiang’. One day, ‘Lu’ will certainly surpass ‘Wang’”. How can such a good child kill people? And to kill Japanese people?”
Chen Shi shook his head. "I know that you want to help him, but such a subjective testimony won’t be accepted in court."
"He... He wouldn’t kill people!"
Seeing the tiny hesitation in the auntie's expression, Chen Shi asked, "Are you hiding something?”
"It’s illegal to cover up for him."
Frightened by this, the auntie admitted, "Okay, okay, I saw him that day... But he had just come back from going online and he bought a drink from me. He was just at the Internet cafe diagonally opposite me! You can go and check."
"What time was it?"
"It was about 11:00 at night!"
"Why didn't you say so before?"
The auntie said with shame, "I mainly thought that this kid isn’t bad and I didn't want him to get drawn into these affairs. The two who died were Japanese, so no matter who killed them, I think they rid the people of evil... I shouldn’t be saying this, but I thought that you police would just go through the motions and not investigate seriously."
"Whether they’re Japanese or aliens, they’re still human lives. Thank you for being honest today!"
