Chapter 701: The Teacher Will Not Get Married (19)
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
The police worked hard and could only conclude that Gao Tong killed herself.
At that time, Gao Tong and Yi Hai’s relationship was found out so she was perplexed. There was also the stress from school so there was a high possibility of her committing suicide.
However, Yi Hai didn’t believe this and her family didn’t, either.
They forced the police to investigate.
But no matter how they investigated the case, no one was suspicious at all.
Yi Hai was kidnapped by Ming Shu on that day so these three people who were the most suspect could be witnesses for each other.
Also, Ming Shu and Bei Tang had no motive to kill a student they didn’t know.
Most importantly, the results from the forensic expert showed that she died from drowning. There were no signs of struggle on her body and it seemed as though she fell down herself.
Gao Tong’s parents made a commotion at the school gate and then went to create trouble in the police station. The police spent a lot of effort to persuade them to leave.
A few days pa.s.sed and the hype dwindled. The pool was opened again after some time.
However, not many people dared to come to the pool.
Ming Shu stood along the railings beside the pool and looked at the calm waters.
Ming Shu looked sideways. A man in a black trenchcoat with a cigarette on his ear was standing a few steps away from her. His hair was really short and his eyes were sharp. He held onto the railing with one hand and looked at her as if he was sizing her up.
Ming Shu turned her body and faced the man in the trenchcoat. “Police uncle, what’s the matter?”
The man was stunned for a moment before he looked at himself. He didn’t find anything that would give his ident.i.ty away and asked curiously, “How do you know that I am a policeman?”
“I know now.” Ming Shu smiled.
“The people from the police station said that you are difficult to deal with. I think I know why now.” The man in the trenchcoat paused. “How did you figure it out?”
“I guessed.” Qingyun was not a place that just anyone could enter so if a strange man appeared at the crime scene, it could either be a policeman or the victim’s family.
However, she had an impression of Gao Tong’s family when they made a commotion outside their school.
There was only one possibility left.
“Why are you still here?” the man asked.
“There is no sign that says ‘Do not enter.’ I am a student of Qingyun. Why can’t I be here?”
The man choked again. “What is your opinion of Gao Tong’s death?”
“I am a suspect to you all. Isn’t it inappropriate for you to ask me this question?”
The man smiled. “With his background, there is no need for Mister Bei Tang to kill someone using such a clumsy method.”
Ming Shu glanced at him.
The police managed to investigate Bei Tang’s background? Or did he reveal it himself?
“So you suspect that Gao Tong didn’t commit suicide?” Ming Shu retracted her gaze.
“Yes.” The man in trenchcoat nodded and said to himself, “According to Yi Hai’s statement, they were planning to run away from home. Why would Gao Tong kill herself?”
According to her cla.s.smate’s description, Gao Tong was an optimistic girl and her results were really good. Even if her early relationship got found out, with her personality, she would not choose to commit suicide.
“Nan Zhi, wait.” When the man regained his thoughts, the girl that was beside him had walked away. He caught up with her hurriedly.
“Police uncle, I know nothing. I can’t help you to solve the case.” I am very busy.
The man knew about what happened during her investigation. This girl was not simple.
“I heard that you think that there are some hidden things in Qingyun High.”
The man saw Ming Shu slowing down and said, “Why would you think this? Did someone tell you something or did you find out about something?”

Ming Shu raised her eyebrows. “What can you tell me?”
The boss looked down and searched his counter. He found his phone and saw a new message the moment he opened it.
The boss scolded.
He called the number and before the other person could say anything, he shouted angrily, “Why did you tell a little girl like her? Do you feel that not enough people died?”
The other person said something and the boss started to calm down. However, the next second, he slammed the phone on the counter.
He pointed at the door of Demon Immortal Supermarket and said furiously, “Close the door.”
“Me?” Ming Shu pointed at herself.
“… It’s better if I do it myself.” The boss gave up on getting Ming Shu to close the door and went to close it himself.
Once the door was closed, the entire s.p.a.ce was sealed.
The boss took out a cigarette and inhaled a few times. Ming Shu hugged her snacks and waited obediently to listen to the story.
“You’re very smart. However, these things have nothing to do with you. You can still leave now and pretend that nothing happened.”
“I’m already here anyway.”
The boss: “…” What do you mean by you are already here!
“Are you sure?” the boss asked again. “This might cost you your life.”
Ming Shu said slowly, “Everyone will die. They either die as an important person or as an unknown person… I just want to die.”
“…” What do you wanting to die to have anything to do with the things you said first!
The boss had finished his cigarette. The air was filled with smoke and it was a little suffocating.
The cat lay on the floor and meowed.
The boss grabbed the cat and held its two paws. He seemed to be contemplating where he should start from.
“Six years ago…” He slowly opened his mouth.
