I Took Home a Mummy - 14
“Who are you guys?”
Looking at the two people outside, Mo Huai’s brows frowned unconsciously. Intuition told him that he did not like the two people in front of him, especially the tall one.
“So it was a couple living together.” Fang Yang muttered softly to himself.
Qiao Ziyan spoke: We are the police of the ninth detachment of the Fucheng District. We came to ask Ning Mitang to go back with us for investigation.”
When Mo Huai heard that they came for Ning Mitang, his large tall body immediately blocked the door. The cold air surrounding his body emitted freely along with a forceful aura, the black hair in front of his forehead moved, “I don’t understand what you’re saying.”
Looking at the tall man who was even taller than the Captain in front of him, Fang Yang was surprised by his strong aura. He did not know who he was and he trembled. He glanced subconsciously at his Captain and secretly sighed. As expected of the Captain. He was looking at the other party as motionless as a mountain.
“Please do not hinder us from performing our duties.” Qiao Ziyan’s voice seemed like it had been electronically processed, with a mechanical coldness.
Mo Huai’s brows knotted, and his thin lip uttered word by word, “You guys can’t go in.”
The two were deadlocked, and the surrounding air seemed to have frozen. Just when Fang Yang thought they were going to fight; a clear and pleasant voice came.
Ning Mitang heard the voices outside and walked out. She did not expect Mo Huai to be blocking the door and two strangers standing outside.
Hearing the voice, and then looking at the girl who came out, it was no wonder the voice was so pleasing to the ear. Her appearance and voice were completely compatible. Fang Yang sighed, what a beautiful girl.
Mo Huai turned his head and the coldness on his face instantly faded, he complained, “These two people are bad guys. I won’t let them in.”
Fang Yang, who was blocked by the door, was dumbfounded. He had never seen a face change so quickly before. Besides, how did they become bad guys? They were the justest law enforcement officers.
Ning Mitang came to the doorway. She was surprised, “May I ask who you are?”
“We are the police of the ninth detachment of the Fucheng District. This is my ID.” Qiao Ziyan asked, “Are you Ning Mitang?”
“Yes, I am. Did something happen?” After looking at the ID, Ning Mitang confirmed that the other party was a policeman. She remembered him, she seemed to have seen him as the scene this noon.
“Regarding the case of Liang Yanting’s death, someone witnessed a conflict between you and the deceased two days ago. We ask that you come back to the police station with us to assist the investigation.”
Ning Mitang frowned, “Liang Yanting?” She remembered the corpse she saw in school today and instantly understood.
“Okay, I’ll go with you.”
“No.” Mo Huai grabbed Ning Mitang’s hand and stopped her, “I can’t let them take you away so casually,” he said, staring at the two people outside.
“They’re the police. There was an accident at school today. I need to assist in the investigation. It’s going to be fine.” Ning Mitang explained.
“I’m worried about you.” Mo Huai held her hand tightly, the cold temperature of his palm made Ning Mitang uncomfortable.
“Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon. Wait here for me.” Ning Mitang comforted him.
There was a long silence.
Mo Huai knew that he couldn’t stop her, so he could only listen to Ning Mitang’s words. He said slowly, “Then, come back soon. If you take too long, I will go look for you.” He said to Ning Mitang. But his eyes were looking at Qiao Ziyan and Fang Yang outside with cold light.
Ning Mitang did not know whether to laugh or cry. Although hard to deal with, it was the first time she did not feel annoyed by him.
“Okay.” She nodded, “Then you can let go?” Ning Mitang’s eyes motioned that his hand was still holding her.
Mo Huai gently rubbed the soft skin of her palm with his cold fingertips, and after a while, reluctantly released his hand.
After watching Ning Mitang turn to leave with the two strangers, Mo Huai said to her again: “Tangtang, I will wait for you to come back.”
Ning Mitang paused at her feet, Tangtang?
Somehow, she felt that this mummy was kind of…cute?
In front, Fang Yang could not help but tremble. Do all couples nowadays spread dog food like this? He glanced at his captain’s profile, his tough profile was tight and his expression was the same. En, as expected of the captain, he was really strong against pressure.
In the interrogation room of the police station, the atmosphere was rigorous and solemn.
Facing the interrogating policeman, Ning Mitang was not nervous at all. She recounted what happened that day, “I walked too fast at the time and knocked her down because I couldn’t hold back my footsteps. Then I apologized.”
“But the witness saw the deceased arguing with you.” Fang Yang took notes.
“That’s right, I refuted her, and then she left.”
Qiao Ziyan’s face was composed, but that did not affect his handsomeness, “Did you find anything wrong with the deceased at the time?” According to the forensic doctor, the deceased’s death time was about noon two days ago, after the conflict with Ning Mitang.
Ning Mitang’s jet-black eyes were bright like a black colored glaze. She looked at Qiao Ziyan, thought for a moment, and then said: “I remember that she seemed as if she had cried at the time, her eyes were red and other than her anger for me, she seemed very sad…”
Qiao Ziyan’s finger that was tapping the table paused. He clenched his hand, “Are you sure?”
“Yes, I saw it very clearly.”
After Ning Mitang left, Fang Yang sorted out his records. He speculated: “The deceased had cried and was sad before her death. These all indicate the possibility of suicide.” The black gel pen spun quickly in his flexible fingers, “Daluo went to check and found that nothing special happened to the deceased recently. It was neither a family problem nor academically, then it’s…”
“Love!” Qiao Ziyan stood up with sharp eyes, “Immediately bring the deceased’s roommate Liao Qiqi back to the interrogation again.”
“Yes, Captain Qiao.” Fang Yang put down his pen. He also realized that the other party might have given a false statement.
On a small road in Big B, the lamppost on the road stood upright on the side of the road, and the dim light fell faintly on the ground. The night was dark and it was quiet all around.
“Didn’t I tell you not to contact me for the time being? What did you call me here for?”
A male voice rang.
Liao Qiqi calmed him, “Xiao Hao, don’t worry, I didn’t mention you during the police interrogation.”
Xiao Hao’s handsome face was a little annoyed, “Did you think the police wouldn’t find out if you don’t say it? Now that Liang Yanting is dead, I don’t know if we will be implicated.”
In the dark night, Liao Qiqi’s voice was particularly gentle, with a slight smile on her white face, “Don’t worry, only I know that you are Liang Yanting’s boyfriend. You have never made it public before, no one else will know.”
Perhaps the other party’s words played a soothing effect, and Xiao Hao’s irritability was reduced a bit, “That’s good, let’s not contact each other for the time being. We’ll see when things pass.”
Liao Qiqi looked at him with tearful eyes, “Then what should I do if I miss you?”
It was very useful to act cute in front of Xiao Hao, “In the past, we had to hide it from Liang Yanting so we couldn’t be together. You stood through it. Be good, just bear it for the time being.”
Liao Qiqi bit her lip. There was nothing she could do, so she responded softly, “Okay.” She didn’t expect that even Liang Yanting’s absence would hinder her.
She did not foresee that after parting with Xiao Hao, she was stopped by Fang Yang, who was waiting there and taken back to the police station as soon as she returned to the dormitory.
After the interrogation, Ning Mitang came out of the police station and took a taxi back to the apartment. Since she had promised Mo Huai to report back safely, she naturally had to keep her word, otherwise, she reckoned that he would go to the girls’ dormitory to look for her.
Lvwan Court was a high-end apartment. Back then, Ning Mitang not only rented it for its high security and good privacy measures, but also its green design.
The moonlight tonight is faint, and the silver moonlight is scattered on the ground. It was a bit cold.
Ning Mitang strolled toward the apartment, thinking about Liang Yanting. Today she smelled a pungent smell on the corpse. Logically speaking, the smell from every dead person she smelled was the same, there was no difference, but today there was another smell. What could be the reason?
There were many green trees along the road, under the moonlight, the trees cast shadows on the ground. Soon, Ning Mitang came to the rented apartment. Before she approached, she saw a black figure sitting motionless on the steps in front of the apartment.
The surrounding light was not bright enough, and the figure had his back toward the light, making it difficult to see his appearance.
Ning Mitang held her suspicion. The surroundings were too quiet, there was only the sound of chirping insects. She felt a little flustered suddenly seeing a black figure sitting there strangely.
Taking out the key and holding it tightly, Ning Mitang walked over quickly without stopping. When she was about to pass by the dark figure, the other party suddenly raised his head.
Mo Huai’s dark starry eyes were bright in the dim night.
“It was you?” Ning Mitang breathed a sigh of relief and released the hand that was holding the key tightly. She realized that she had held it too hard and her palm had been imprinted.
Her accelerated heartbeat slowed down, “Why are you sitting here?” Ning Mitang asked in astonishment.
Mo Huai quickly stood up. His slightly hoarse voice was full of joy, “I am waiting for you here, you can see me the moment you come back.”
Ning Mitang was taken aback, and the apex of her heart seemed to be scratched by the soft hairs, which was a bit numb and itchy. Facing Mo Huai’s eager black eyes, for a while, she was so moved that she felt as though she was about to suffocate.
Since losing her parents, she had not been cared for like this for a long time.
She spoke, her voice softer than ever before, “How long have you been waiting?”
Mo Huai’s thin eyelids drooped, his half-closed eyelashes curled up, as if a little embarrassed, his voice was low, “After you left not too long, I followed you down.” His thin lips are a bit dry, “Don’t scold me, I have listened to you waiting in the apartment, this place is also a part of the apartment.”
He asked people who passed by and confirmed that this area belonged to the apartment. He followed her instructions.
In the dim light, Ning Mitang was silent for a while before she said: “I won’t scold you, let’s go up.”
Hearing this, Mo Huai’s eyebrows smoothed out, with an indescribable sense of beauty, “Okay.”
He walked beside Ning Mitang, and after a while, he said sincerely: “Tangtang, I want to hold your hand.”
“Didn’t you just suck blood this evening?”
“I’m not sucking blood; I just want to hold it.” Mo Huai looked at the little white hand hanging on one side, he coveted, “Just one finger is fine.” He yielded.
Ning Mitang looked at him for a long time, her pink lips curled in a small arc, “Here, hold it.”
Mo Huai stretched out his big cold hand and tightly wrapped Ning Mitang’s index finger. Feeling the little warmth in his palm, he was satisfied: “Let’s go up.”
The author has something to say:
Ning Mitang: “En.”
Ning Mitang: “Huh?”
Ning Mitang: “What’s wrong?”
The mummy lowered his head halfway, a little shy: “I… I want a kiss.”
Ning Mitang: “Okay.” (づ￣3￣)づ╭
