Chapter 215: A Glimmer of Hope

Lin Dongxue called and said, “Old Chen, Chen Guang and Yin Wen’s information couldn’t be found in the census information at all. I even searched the names of those with similar pronunciations. However, they didn’t meet the requirements. They might not be people from this city at all.”

“Not from this city? Shouldn't there be a temporary residence permit or something?”

“We’ll have to go to the local police station in the district to check. It would have been filed thirteen years ago though, so I don't know if they would still have it.”

Chen Shi turned his attention to Xu Xiaodong. Xu Xiaodong immediately understood and said, “Okay, Brother Chen. Let me go and check!”

Chen Shi continued talking on the phone. “What else have you found?”

“Captain Peng seems to have a major discovery. He wants you to make a trip back.”

“Then, I’ll go back!”

Chen Shi and Xu Xiaodong parted ways temporarily. When Chen Shi was driving, he saw the young monk walking slowly on the road. Chen Shi followed along, slowed down, rolled down the window, and said, “Little Master, get in the car. There are new discoveries back at the bureau.”

The little monk seemed to still be holding a grudge. He got into the car without a word. He sat in the back seat and clasped his hands together. “Donor, I was wrong just then.”

“Recognized your mistakes? Not bad! Not bad!”

“No, monks should not get angry like that. I will fast to redeem myself tonight.”

“Haii!” Chen Shi sighed. “I’ve lived longer than you and I’ve encountered this situation countless times. Two parties won’t stop quarrelling about their memory of something. One said that it’s round, the other said it’s square. People’s memories change, but everyone is willing to believe their own memories the most. Jump out and think about it from a third person’s point of view. Do you think your statement is correct, or do you think my speculation is correct?”

“The donor, yourself, admits that it’s speculation and not fact. How is that persuasive?”

“How is your memory?”

“Very good. I can recite the Buddhist scriptures just by reading it three times.”

“Okay, okay, let’s put the controversy on hold for now.”

When they got to the bureau, Lin Dongxue came forward and said, “Captain Peng is waiting for you!”

“No rush. Is the portrait expert on the team today?”

“He is. What do you need him for?”

“Follow me!” Chen Shi said to the young monk.

After finding a portrait expert, Chen Shi asked for a face to be drawn out. The little monk shook his head and said, “It’s been so many years. I can't remember the appearance of the bad person.”

“I didn't ask you to recall the face of the bad guy. I’m asking you to recall the face of Captain Peng, whom you met the other day when we went to eat. It’s only been three days.”

“Do you think my memory is bad?”

“Memory is divided into many types. For example, text, logical and visual memory.”
