"I'm talking about the nature of this small collective. They all believe in something that others think is very absurd. It's not an exaggeration to call it a cult!" Chen Shi said.
Xu Xiaodong said, "They should be called dream worshipers!"
"Okay, that's a good summary... By the way, Xiaodong, help me monitor an individual."
"Okay, let me know." Xu Xiaodong was very excited when he heard that there was a mission.
Chen Shi asked him to monitor Liu Tao and wrote down a copy of the address. He complimented, "Your energy is good. I’ll treat you to dinner later."
"Hehe, I like to perform tasks. I can do them without using my head."
"That’s nice and all, but if you keep this kind of thinking, you won’t become an outstanding police officer."
"Why do I have to be outstanding? I can just be a good support. The police are always about teamwork! Right, Dongxue?"
Lin Dongxue smiled and said, "You have so many sets of fallacies."
Early the next morning, Chen Shi and Lin Dongxue went to the bus station. To reach Yinxian, they had to pass some rugged mountain roads. It was more convenient to take a bus. Chen Shi hadn't taken these to travel for a long time.
Enjoying the scenery of the mountains along the way, the two arrived at the small town in the mountains at 10:00 in the morning. Lin Dongxue said, “It’s a warm and quaint town. If it weren’t for investigating this case, I would never have had a chance to come here in this life. I’ve never even heard of it."
"If you aren’t in a hurry, we can spend the night here and take the bus back tomorrow morning."
"Yueyue is at home alone though? Let’s forget it! We’ll spend a lot of time together in the future, but you won’t have that much time to spend with Yueyue."
"Haha, I’ll thank you for being such a considerate big sister for Yueyue."
The two inquired around and got to Yinxian No. 1 Middle School. Chen Shi told a teacher the names of the deceased. The teacher furrowed their brows and recalled, asking, "Which class were they in?"
"I don't know, but they were all born in 1979."
"Then they should have entered the school before the 90s. It’s been too long. The teachers of that class have already retired. I’ll check if there’s any information about them in the archives."
The archives room was actually on a hill behind the school. The teacher said as he walked, "It’s actually the old school site. Now, it’s used as a warehouse. It’s just a row of tiled houses. I went to school here when I was a child. This school has always been very poor and can't keep people. Later, a Hong Kong actor donated money to build the teaching building down there and expanded the enrollment capacity. The situation got a bit better as a result."
"What year did you go to junior high?" Chen Shi asked.
"Were there any rumors in the school, such as a student being bullied by the whole class?"
