Lin Dongxue put her ear to the door to listen. Her eyes suddenly enlarged and she beckoned them over. "Listen to what's going on inside."
When Chen Shi went to listen, there was a faint groan from a man in the room, which seemed to be one derived from pain.
"Could it be that someone had an accident at home?" Lin Dongxue guessed. She had heard of a middle-aged man who fell at home after getting drunk and died suddenly in the afternoon.
Chen Shi thought about it and said, "I'll open the lock."
"Isn’t that not so good?" Gu You asked.
"It's better to be reckless than to sit on the side-lines." As he said this, Chen Shi took out his tools and pried the lock open in the blink of an eye.
Accompanied by a creak, the old wooden door opened. The light in the room was dim and there was a musty smell, characteristic of old houses. When their eyes adjusted to the dimness, the three were surprised to find that the walls were covered with various strange symbols. It felt very eerie.
Gu You went pale and said, "These symbols are the same as those painted by Chen Fengde in the detention center."
"No way!" Lin Dongxue was shocked, "Is this red stuff blood?"
"Find the person first!" Chen Shi reminded them.
The sounds came from the bedroom. When the three of them walked in, they saw a big iron cage with a scrawny man squatting inside. His eyes were big. When he looked at the visitors, his eyes looked as though he was a dog being rescued by a dog lover while getting sent to the slaughterhouse.
This was a kidnapping case! Chen Shi thought immediately and stepped forward to open the cage, but found that the cage wasn’t locked at all. However, he didn’t know how to open it.
"Sir, who kept you here? I’m a police officer!" Lin Dongxue showed her badge.
The man raised his head and looked at Lin Dongxue. His thin neck made people worry that his head would just fall off. Then, he pointed to his mouth.
"He's hungry..." Chen Shi guessed. "I'll get some food."
With that said, Chen Shi went out to buy scallion pancakes and mineral water. The aromatic scallion pancakes were placed in the man's hands. He immediately took a bite as soon as he picked it up, but he only took a single bite. Suddenly, his expression changed and he vomited the food in his mouth. It was also thrown out of the cage.
"Don't like this?" Chen Shi was confused.
"He's on a hunger strike." A girl's voice came from behind them.
The three of them looked back and saw a little girl holding a doll with very clear eyes. She said, "He locked himself up. The cage can be opened from the inside. You don't need to be so nosy."
