Han Le was so flustered that his whole face was breaking out in cold sweat. “You’re speaking nonsense! The incident clearly happened at night and I have an alibi for that… What does three in the afternoon have anything to do with me?”
Chen Shi responded, “This trickery you used was learned through one of the novels you read, right? You even carefully wiped off the dust on the electric box. However, you forgot about the freezer. When the power was cut, the items in the freezer melted and lost their form. Besides that, there’s also an eyewitness.”
Lin Dongxue added, “According to Karl’s Exchange Principle, the criminal will leave material evidence at a crime scene, but they will also take things away in the process. We’ve already found residue of the items you tried to burn at your house and are currently in the process of testing them.”
Chen Shi whispered to correct her, “It’s Locard’s Exchange Principle.” Lin Dongxue, who had failed in showing off, laughed a little like an idiot.

Han Le’s mouth kept opening and shutting as he hesitated whether he should talk or not. His hesitation finally disappeared from his face. “I left the note and a funeral shroud for her.”
“Why did you do that?”
“I… I was in love with her for ten years. TEN years! I was already trying to pursue her in university. I would take walks with her, treat her to meals, drop everything and be the first one to comfort her when she was down, console her, give her advice, but she never liked me back.
