A foreman came over and asked, "Who are you looking for?"
Lin Dongxue showed them her badge. "We are investigating a case and want to look around."
Then, they turned around and started looking for clues. Chen Shi occasionally picked up a little soil as samples. Lin Dongxue suddenly called out, "Old Chen, look at this."
She pulled out a shovel from a pile of sand. Because it had been used for a long time, the surface of the shovel was very smooth and the edges were sharp. Lin Dongxue inserted it into the ground and said, "This thing is sharper than I thought. You can probably even cut wood with it!"
"Sand is silica and whetstones are silica as well. If it’s used to shovel sand every day, it would sharpen naturally." Chen Shi picked it up in his hands. It wasn’t light. He said, "Go that way and don't turn back."
Lin Dongxue walked straight ahead but suddenly felt like someone was rushing towards her from behind. She immediately turned around and saw Chen Shi holding the shovel as if he was about to smack it into her. Lin Dongxue was startled and held her chest as she asked, "What are you doing?!"
"Simulating the killer's movements. The shovel is pretty heavy. I don't think that the killer can hold it while following the victim before murdering her."
"So, it's an acquaintance then?"
"Or it was a planned ambush?" Chen Shi looked around while thinking to himself.

"That's great! You should get off work early and have some rest."
"Are you guys still outside? Are you investigating the case? I’ll come as well!"
Hanging up the phone, Lin Dongxue said to Chen Shi, "Xiaodong was released. It seems like he’s come out of the threatening situation unharmed."
"I’ve already said that you don’t need to worry about it. They don't have enough evidence to do anything to him unless someone was deliberately trying to frame him.”
"Hmm? It's as if you’ve experienced it yourself."
"Haha, how could that be... Let’s look over there!"
The sky gradually darkened as the two of them walked around in the dirty construction site. Fearing that Lin Dongxue would fall, Chen Shi kept holding her hand. Thankfully, nobody was around to see them.
When passing by a building foundation pit, Chen Shi shouted, "Pattern!" before jumping down. Lin Dongxue reacted and realized he had said "soil sample" instead.
