Three Marriages - Chapter 15.4
Long Er asked: “When you arrived, are there any lantern lights on the corridor? Was the room lighted up?”
“No, it was dark. But the door to the room was opened. I was out that late to search for someone, so I had a lantern on my hand and was able to see it when I reached there.”
Long Er nodded his head and asked him about the details of his negotiations with Zhu Fu in regards to the topic in regards to shops. Lu Si Xian answered all of it seriously. Then Long Er consoled him and have him wait for a little more, as the truth shall be revealed soon.
After Long Er visited Shopkeeper Lu, he then went to greet FuYin DaRen Qiu Ruo Ming. Qiu Ruo Ming headed out dealing with cases today, so he had only returned. When he heard Long Er had came to request to meet him, he then allowed his entrance.
When the both of them met, they slightly chatted a little before going straight to the case. Long Er told him of Ju Mu Er’s situation, saying that she was not able to meet him as her body is now burning up and felt wea, so she can only come after her body is healed.
Qiu Ruo Ming was also a good officer that investigates the case seriously. Although he knew about Long Er’s reputation and did not like his way of doing things, he still asked him what did that Miss Ju recalled. Accepting that question, Long Er told him all about the situations that Ju Mu Er told him.
After listening to it, Qiu Ruo Ming was shocked and was not able to believe in it. He had never thought that a blind girl was able to observe the surroundings calmly in such detail under such a dangerous situation. This for sure will be more than what normal people can remember.
Qiu Ruo Ming turned silent. He was considering if Long Er added in or reduced out information to help Lu Si Xian out.
Long Er understood what Qiu Ruo Ming had in his mind. If he had not fell for so many tricks by Ju Mu Er, he also will not believe that she can be this smart.
He had even guaranteed for Ju Mu Er: “DaRen, although Miss Ju is blind, she is indeed someone that’s very smart. This me had known her for quite a long time, so I dared to guarantee for it in regards to her words. If DaRen still had any questions, you can hold another listening when her body healed up.”
Qiu Ruo Ming thought it through and nodded. Long Er then said: “According to what Miss Ju said, the scent of sesame oil on Zhu Chen Shi is very similar to the one on the culprit. I had saw in the court last night. When Zhu Chen Shi came in and saw Zhu Fu’s corpse, she rushed up and wailed. But she did not rush to his body, but next to his body. If they are spouses who are intimate with one another, then that will appear to be odd. Although the way she acted was normal, but it will still let others find it to be odd.”
Qiu Ruo Ming can’t help but look at Long Er. Although the reputation of Second Master is not good at all, but he is still an observant person. What he said was indeed things that he found to be odd. So, he had gone to the house of Zhu Fu’s two companions and alter head to investigate Zhu Chen Shi. But even after he asked around, he still found nothing suspicious.
He had wanted to head back here to go through things in detail, but turns out Long Er came here with some clues.
The smell of sesame oil? In the Ping Yang Street where Zhu Residence was located, there was indeed one shop selling sesame oil. Seems like, he has a need to head there.
