Lin Qiupu asked, "Why?"
Chen Shi responded, "I still have to buy New Year's goods. It’s New Year's Eve in three days. Can’t I have a nice and peaceful New Year?”
Lin Qiupu raised his eyebrows. "That’s your excuse?"
Lin Dongxue tried to mediate. "In fact, we don’t necessarily need you to do it. We’ve sent a few people to pretend to be Song Lang, but he saw right through them. We just want you to have a go at it.”
"How am I similar to Song Lang?"
"Your age is almost the same, your temperament..." Lin Qiupu was very reluctant to admit it, but continued, "It’s also a tiny bit similar."
Chen Shi shook his head. "You just said that he has informed the media. This case is bound to cause a huge sensation in the whole city. I don't want to put my face on such a high-profile situation, so I’m not going to accept the job. I think you’ll have to ask an expert for this. I’ll be taking my leave now.”
Chen Shi took Tao Yueyue and was about to leave when the conference door behind him was smashed open. Lu Qixing’s line of sight was locked on Chen Shi’s back. He said with excitement, “Officer Song! You’re Song Lang!”
Chen Shi sighed and turned his head around. "I’m not. You’ve mistaken me for someone else.”
However, when Lu Qixing saw his face straight-on, he got even more pumped up. He was so excited that he was shaking. He said, "This is your usual tone of voice and the typical words you say. You’re Officer Song! I can’t be wrong!”
Chen Shi was made speechless and responded as politely as possible. "Old man, you’re mistaken. I’m really not the person you’re looking for."
Chen Shi took Tao Yueyue and made a beeline for the entrance and took her to get some food. Then, they continued to buy New Year’s goods until they decided to go home at 4:00PM. When they got home, they saw Xu Xiaodong's car stopped at the door.
He sighed helplessly as he walked to his own door. Lin Dongxue and Xu Xiaodong were both there. Xu Xiaodong said with a smile, "Brother Chen, I didn’t know you lived here. How much is a square meter to live in the houses around here?”
"When I bought it, it was about 5,000 or so. It might be around 8,000 nowadays… Are you still looking for me regarding that case? Come in and sit down.”
When they got into the house, Chen Shi brought them drinks. As it was Xu Xiaodong’s first time there, he looked around curiously while Lin Dongxue talked. "The old man insisted that you’re Song Lang and that you have to be the one to pick up the case."
"I don't understand. When did the police become a private detective company? People can choose who they want to investigate the case? Why don’t you all just open the case and investigate like normal?”
"Although your words are correct, he’s not willing to cooperate. From his son’s time of death, it can be inferred that he was the last person to have seen his son. This clue is crucial."
