Wang Guo walked towards the small alley. From the outside, it looked quite deep and kind of scary. There was a set of stairs at the end which led up into the mountain. Since the buildings had been constructed on the mountain, this town could be regarded as a mountain town.
He could see doors set at random intervals further along the alley walls. Once he entered the small alley, he found that it actually wasn’t as deep as it first appeared to be. There were many kinds of flowers and plants that the elderly had planted, along with the families’ fuse boxes hidden all along the walls.
As Wang Guo walked further into the alley, he looked around aimlessly.
He strained his ears to see if he could hear that noise the middle-aged woman had mentioned but he couldn’t hear anything.
After walking for more than a hundred meters, he reached the end of the alley and saw a doorway.
It seemed to belong to an impoverished elderly person. There were many such people left behind here.
He turned and walked back towards the entrance of the alley, not knowing what he was looking for—cigarette butts, maybe, or possibly even footprints.
He wanted to find something unusual.
As he got closer to the entrance, he suddenly stopped—there was a woman in a dark green raincoat with headphones around her neck squatting in the alley. She seemed to be looking for something.
He didn’t remember seeing her when he walked by just now.
He walked towards her but she didn’t seem surprised at all, as if she had been aware of his presence for a long time now.
When Wang Guo opened his mouth to ask her a question, the other person said, “I’m a man.”
The other party turned around and Wang Guo found that, sure enough, the person was a man with long hair.
Wang Guo wanted to ask another question but the other party interrupted him, “It has nothing to do with you.”
Wang Guo paused. Indeed, what he wanted to ask was, “What are you doing here?”
It was like the other person was able to read minds. As soon as Wang Guo started to activate his vocal chords, the other person would immediately answer him.
Wang Guo thought for a moment. This time, he wanted to ask something but the other party spoke before he could even think about it, “Your heartbeat is too loud. Go away.”
Wang Guo was feeling a little upset so he took out his police badge and held it up in front of the other party.
As the other party looked at his badge, Wang Guo said, “I’m investigating a case. This is the crime scene. What are you doing here?”
“Is that the case that happened on the day between rainstorms?” The other party asked.
When Wang Guo leveled him with a cold look, the other person said, “There’s something wrong with your heart. You’d better go to the hospital for an exam. Hearing the sounds of your heartbeat is making me uncomfortable.”
Wang Meng and Kan Jian sat on the steps of Wushanju.
Kan Jian listened to Wang Meng’s story and checked the account again and again.
The two were silent for a while before Wang Meng asked, “Why aren’t you saying anything?”
“As a smart person, I don’t know whether to believe this or not,” Kan Jian said.
“Normal people wouldn’t.” As Wang Meng spoke, he lit a cigarette, took a puff, and promptly choked.
“Do you want to inform the boss?” Kan Jian asked.
“I can’t reach them now.” As he spoke, he dialed their number but only got a lot of white noise in response.
There was a very faint tapping sound that could be heard in the midst of that white noise but he didn’t know where it was coming from.
“After they set off and got to a certain place, this is the only sound that comes through. It almost seems like someone is knocking on a rock.”
Kan Jian sighed. He seemed very sullen.
When he first met Wu Xie, Kan Jian had asked him a personal question, “How can I get others to accept me as quickly as possible?”
Wu Xie told him that he could make himself appear less intelligent.
He did as Wu Xie said, and it actually worked quite well.
He no longer knew whether he was really smart or not after pretending for so long but now the boss was telling him that he could be smarter.
Because change could be more impressive.
But the first thing he encountered after deciding to become smarter was really tricky. He thought he could start off simple before trying to tackle something difficult but that didn’t look like it was going to happen.
Wang Meng hit his head against the door frame and groaned in pain, “What do I do? What do I do?!”
Kan Jian held him down and then said with a very clever expression on his face, “There’s only one way, but it’s a bit risky. Are you willing to try it?”
Wang Meng nodded, “My dad has been encased in bricks. I’m willing to try anything.”
In front of Wang Meng’s computer, Kan Jian uploaded Wang Meng’s photo to the online store.
The name of the product was marked: Wang Meng.
The price column was still empty, and he looked at Wang Meng questioningly, “How much is appropriate?”
“He just bought one. He won’t want it at the same price. What do you want me to do?”
“Then how much would you say?”
“Three yuan and twenty cents?”
“So little? My dad has Alzheimer’s and he’s worth 99,999,999 yuan yet I’m not even as good as a bottle of mineral water?” Wang Meng asked.
Kan Jian thought for a while before typing in 100,000 and clicking submit.
The new product was uploaded and appeared in the online store in an instant.
Then, Kan Jian handed Wang Meng a knife and a slingshot.
“You go sit in the same chair your father was sitting in when he disappeared. I’ll keep watch.” As Kan Jian spoke, he pointed to a nearby pillar. “If someone comes to pick up the goods, I’ll shoot them in the head with my slingshot. Don’t worry. No one except for Teacher Zhang can escape from this distance.”
