The lengthy case involving Zheng Guohao's murder was finally over. Lin Qiupu and the chief proposed to publicize the case in a newspaper. In a sense, the root of this case was the inadequate protection of minors. Lin Qiupu hoped that the case would foster some positive results. On the other hand, it could also slightly deter shameless adults who intended to sexually assault minors.
On the evening of June 4th, Chen Shi was lying on the sofa at Lin Dongxue's house. He flipped through the newspaper and said, "Look at this article making Yi Qing out to be an innocent and pitiful weak female. She’s clearly the real murderer!"
"This way of writing is popular with the public! But the police seem to have become the wicked people who killed Yi Qing." Lin Dongxue, wearing an apron, brought out a plate of sweet and sour pork ribs from the kitchen and went to Chen Shi. She tilted her head and smiled, "Congratulations on your success in quitting smoking. This is a reward for you."
"I'll try it!" Chen Shi picked up his chopsticks and tasted a piece. Lin Dongxue, who was making this dish for the first time, could only be said to have made a normal dish.
Lin Dongxue asked expectantly, "Is it delicious?"
"It’s really delicious!"
"Haha, I was worried that the seasoning was too light. If you like it, that’s great."
"If I quit smoking again, will you reward me again?"
"What wishful thinking. If I find you smoking again, haha, you just wait and see."
Chen Shi's cell phone rang. After he answered, he said to Lin Dongxue, "Can you help me pick up a package? It’s just downstairs."
After Lin Dongxue went out, Chen Shi hurriedly took the plate of sweet and sour pork ribs to the kitchen. He threw the ribs back into the pan for re-seasoning, thickened things with corn starch, used a high temperature to concentrate the sauce a little, then drizzled a layer of oil over everything, before plating the ribs and putting them back onto the living room table.
Lin Dongxue came back happily with a large box in her hands, "What is this? What is this? Is it for me?"
When she opened it, she could see a bunch of red roses with a note that read "I'm glad to have met you."
Holding the roses, Lin Dongxue's cheeks seemed to be as red as the roses. Chen Shi produced a small box, took out a platinum ring from within and put it on Lin Dongxue's middle finger, saying, "This is my official confession."
"You need to say it properly!" Lin Dongxue buried her face in the roses with embarrassment and her flushed face was camouflaged amidst them.
"Lin Dongxue, will you be my girlfriend?"
"Okay! For how long?"
"Till you meet a better person."
"That is forever then!" Lin Dongxue smiled happily.
The two looked at each other and smiled. It was a long time before Lin Dongxue said, "Let's eat. The dishes will be cold."
