After ordering the dishes, Chen Shi opened two bottles of soda."Judging by your lack of energy, I’m guessing you have come across a complex case again?”
"Haii, progress is not smooth-sailing."
"Why don’t you tell me about it?"
Lin Dongxue told him about the case and their progress with the investigation. Chen Shi nodded as he listened. Lin Dongxue asked, "What is the opinion of master detective Chen?"
"Since I didn't see it with my own eyes and am only basing it on what I’ve heard from you, I’m afraid my view of the case will be biased and skewed.”
"Hmph! You’re just stumped as well!"
Chen Shi smiled. "The skewers are coming."
The boss put the skewers down and Lin Dongxue looked at the food in front of her. There was roast lamb, grilled cartilage, grilled fish tofu, roasted eggplant, and another thing that she’d never eaten before. She picked it up curiously. "This is..."
"Grilled silkworms. This is the best place to eat this in all of Long’an City. Why don’t you try one?”
"Insects?" Lin Dongxue shuddered.
Chen Shi grabbed one and put it in his mouth. "The outside is crisp and the inside is tender. When you bite into it, the juices inside burst out! Try it!”
Lin Dongxue could not even think about stomaching it and set it back down.
She commented, "Don't you think Jiang Mei's parents are too much?"
"Are you also such a traditional type of person?"
"A marriage with a large difference in social class can't attain real happiness. Love seems to be a sacred and noble thing, but it also has a material foundation. The material foundation is not everything. However, if there is no material foundation at all, it would definitely be impossible. The initial intention of the parents is to make their daughter happy in the long run. If it were your parents, they would feel the same way.”
"I don't have parents..." Lin Dongxue said faintly.
"No worries... But I think that people can’t be happy if they marry someone they don’t actually like.”
"Yeah, I feel that a truly visionary parent will look at the development potential of the person. That is, their self-motivation and ambition, as compared to the existing standards of material foundation. But these things are intangible, unlike material foundation which people can see and touch. So most parents only see feelings as something that can be cultivated, but they don’t understand that material possessions can change overnight."
Chen Shi reached for the last skewer of grilled silkworms but was intercepted by Lin Dongxue. She frowned and bit into it. Although the texture was weird, it was not difficult to swallow under the blessings of condiments and the grill.
She waved her little skewer stick around. "
