Chapter 148: Secret

Chen Shi and Lin Dongxue stood on the balcony between the flights of stairs for a while. He sent a text message to Xu Xiaodong asking him to see what Xue Chengyi was doing.

Xu Xiaodong replied, "He’s in the room."

"Go!"

The two returned and Chen Shi rushed past the cordon as he shouted, "Who’s inside?!"

Xue Chengyi, who was mopping the floor with the mop, turned his head and smiled sheepishly. "I saw that the ground was dirty so I came in and mopped."

Chen Shi said with a cold face, "I have said that there are important clues in the room and that no one is allowed in. Doesn’t that include you? Are you destroying the evidence for the murderer?”

"I... I’m not!"

Lin Dongxue remarked, "Obstruction of justice. Sorry, you have to make a trip with us.”

Xue Chengyi was crying and pleaded. "Don't... Don't give me such a big sin. I didn’t do anything, really!"

"Come out!"

Xue Chengyi put down the mop in misery and pleaded with Chen Shi. "Office Chen, you know me the best. I couldn’t be the murderer. My father died that night and I was so busy with everything. Why would I randomly kill a little nurse?”

"Let's talk back at the bureau!"

"You can’t treat me like this. If it wasn't for me, your daughter would have been ruined by those hooligans. You can't frame me like this."

"What? We’ll notify her!”

Chen Shi took Xue Chengyi's mobile phone and handed it to Xu Xiaodong. He told him to go to Xue Chengyi's house before calling Tang Hui to let her know that her husband was at the bureau. This was to make sure she didn’t flee.

Xue Chengyi knew that he was doomed. The light dimmed from his eyes.

When they got to the bureau, Chen Shi did not cuff Xue Chengyi and even gave him a glass of water. Chen Shi said, "We’ve seen each other so many times, so let’s not talk in circles. The time of the incident was 4:00. What were you doing at the time?”

"How many times have I said that my wife and I went out to eat supper... Officer Chen, what are you playing at?"

"Let me show you a photo."

Chen Shi took out photos that showed both sides of the pillow and let Xue Chengyi see it. Xue Chengyi was covered in cold sweat. He said with a smile still on his face, "I don't know what this is."

Chen Shi put on his gloves and picked up the cup that Xue Chengyi touched. “Your fingerprints are on this. We’ll know once we compare it.”

Xue Chengyi began to sweat raindrops but he still refused to speak.

Chen Shi used the internal phone and called for the forensic analysts to come in and take the cup away. Xue Chengyi was so scared th
