After leaving the office, Chen Shi went to the forensic department to find Peng Sijue. Lin Dongxue followed behind and asked, “There’s no corpse. Why are we finding Captain Peng?”
“Don't think so rigidly. We may have found a corpse somewhere else during this decade that would have just been unidentified. If you use the DNA of the young monk to compare it, you may find the corpse to be his father’s.”
“You’re right! Why didn't I think of that?!”
However, Peng Sijue actually had a day off today. Still, Chen Shi was not discouraged and said to the person on duty, “Can I get a kit that draws blood?”
“Brother Chen, just take it as you please.”
After taking the tools, Chen Shi called Peng Sijue and asked him to come out to eat. Peng Sijue’s voice was eight times higher on the phone. “You’re asking me out for dinner? Who else is going?”
“What are we eating?”
“I know you don't like to eat hot things. I know there is a vegan restaurant in Gongzhou Road which is very good. I wanted to try it long ago.”
“Lin Dongxue is treating!” Chen Shi said. Lin Dongxue glared at him.
“I’ll arrive at 5:00. If you guys are ten minutes late, I will leave.”
After Chen Shi hung up the phone, Lin Dongxue asked, “Why did you say I’m treating?”
“Didn’t you just lose the bet where the loser needs to invite the other to a meal?”
Lin Dongxue made a helpless expression. “I am willing to accept my loss.”
“I’ll call the little monk over as well.”
Chen Shi texted the young monk and told him the address. The young monk returned a prayer emoji, making Chen Shi smile. “He is indeed a monk.”
At 5:00, Chen Shi and Lin Dongxue rushed to the restaurant on Gongzhou Road and saw Peng Sijue talking to the young monk. Chen Shi was wondering how they had already familiarized themselves with each other when they hadn’t even been introduced yet.
Upon listening, it was found that they were actually saying—
“The scriptures mention that the thousands of worlds are constituted by the karma of sentient beings. There are also worlds outside this world. There are as many worlds as there are stars. The scriptures are not as idealistic as you’ve made it seem.”
“Science has proven that the world is made from atoms. Your old ways of thinking are simply untenable.”
“But sir, you cannot deny its materialism and speculation. Buddhism is not a religion, but a philosophy and way of life. It is a way to understand everything!”
“Fuck, you're ‘standing’ while bluffing?!” Chen Shi said.
Peng Sijue looked embarrassed and said, “This little monk is too eloquent. The monks are advancing with the times.”
“Okay, okay. Let's just eat!”
Peng Sijue found that the young monk was following them and cast a doubtful look at Chen Shi. Chen Shi said, “We’re together.”
The young monk clasped his palms together in ritual
