I was an idiot for going to the meeting place with high hopes when he told me he had something important to talk about on Christmas Eve night.

Advertisements

We had been together for 4 years; I was 26 years old; I was at the right age to get married. He always said, “We’ll get married next year,”. He also mentioned that he was expecting a promotion at the beginning of the year, so how could I not be hopeful?

We would meet at the station, have dinner at a fancy restaurant, and finally he would surprise me with a proposal?

What an idiot I had been for imagining that!

I also hoped that afterwards we would stay in a slightly higher rated hotel? The next day is my day off, so I thought that we would spend the whole night together…Ah I’m really stupid for wearing such an expensive pair of underwear!

Advertisements

I had arrived an hour before our meeting time because I was so excited, but the person who appeared in front of me was a slender, well suited, beautiful woman.

Huh? Huh? Why are Shinjo-san and Fushimi-san together?

Oh, a coincidence? Maybe they ran into each other? …But why are the two of them locking arms with each other?

I think I looked at them with a blank stare. I must have looked pretty dumb.

“I’m sorry, Meiko. This is the way it is, so let’s break up.”

Advertisements

“I’m sorry Tanuki-senpai[1]. Even though I knew you were going out with Shinjou-san, I just couldn’t give up…”

That’s right. I had kept it a secret from the company, but I had told Fushimi-san that I was going out with Shinjo-san in secret… or rather, she found out. Normally, if you already knew, would you still take your senior’s boyfriend?

I mean, what about Shinjou-san?

Would you dump your girlfriend of the right age after 4 years of dating and switch to a younger girl in the same department?

Have you thought about whether you’d have trouble with your previous girlfriend or maybe jeopardize your job?

What a steel mental mentality.

The shock was so great that I was left stunned. All I could say was ‘Oh, yes’.

Advertisements

Maybe it’s because my answer was so simple, and the two of them had a kind of subtle look on their faces, but in the end, with a smug look on their faces, they just left, arm in arm, with only the useless information of ‘I have dinner reservations’.

As for me, I walked around the city in a daze, unable to recover from the shock. The whole city is filled with Christmas excitement. Every shop I walked into was full of happy couples.

I finally found a small tavern in a back alley that didn’t seem to be celebrating Christmas at all.

“Sweetheart, sweetheart, are you okay?”

He gently shook my shoulder and I opened my eyelids. Oh no, I must have fallen asleep.

“Ah! I am having a great time!”

“Are you sure you’re OK?”

I noticed that I was apparently the only one there and the restaurant seemed to be closed for business.

While I was still sober, I managed to pay the bill and walked out of the shop, waving to the landlady who was anxiously seeing me out of the shop.

I shouldn’t have worn high heeled, fashionable shoes.

But still, what time is it? Did I miss the last train?

Advertisements

According to my original plan, I was supposed to be making out with Shinjo-san at the hotel by now. Until a few hours ago, I had no intention of taking the last train home.

Right now, Shinjo-san and Fushimi-san must be flirting with each other~ Having a pillow talk? The thought of me sleeping in bed alone, laughing at myself, made me feel angry and the good feeling of being drunk disappeared.

I am definitely not going to spend tonight alone…. I’m going to do whatever it takes to have sex with a man!

I was originally going to get laid tonight. A random stranger on the street, I’ll definitely eat your dick!

Bold ideas that I normally wouldn’t think of come out of my mouth tonight. Being drunk is amazing.

Once I made up my mind, I had no choice but to find a partner.

I walked down the street, looking around with the eyes of a hunter.

All these guys are walking around with their arms around their partner, what is this! Was there a law that says you can’t walk alone tonight?

If you look around, there are couples all over the place, and if you see someone walking alone, it’s usually an uncle and you hesitate somehow.

I’m going to eat your dick! Although I was enthusiastic and said that but I didn’t mean that I could do it with anyone.

It was at that moment that I found a young man standing at the entrance of a dark building one street off the main road.

Advertisements

I stopped and stared at him.

From a distance, I could see that he was well built, well dressed and older than me. I guessed that he was in his mid-thirties at most…

It was too dark for a rendezvous. He was all alone with no sign of a woman.

Yes! Success!

Once I found my prey, I scolded my shaky legs and hurried down the narrow alleyway in a straight line toward the man.

The Case Of The 27 Knife Stabs: Chapter 5 – Part 3

TOC

Next Chapter

“27 sunflowers, 27 petals, this painting must have been painted by Liao Xiaoqing. He said he had never met Wang Rui and didn’t recognize Liao Xiaoqing, but he seemed to be familiar with the murder. If he didn’t know him, he wouldn’t have reacted this way. Also, he drank Da Hong Pao [1], the packaging of the tea jar is exactly the same as the one placed in Liao Xiaoqing’s house. He and the sisters, there must be a connection between them.”  

Advertisements

Han Zecheng and Mo Yun went to the Street Garden on Hengyang Road.

It was a lively place, full of people who are on a date, exercising, strolling and taking a break from shopping.

There are no security cameras on this street. Li Hai chose such a place to trade face to face, which is really smart.

Li Hong[2] called to say that he has found a new clue; someone had been looking for Wang Rui on the Internet to investigate a case about an affair.

The two men made contact via the forum first and then started exchanging private emails later on.

 Because the message in the forum mentioned a celebrity, only a reliable and experienced private investigator would dare to take such a job.

Li Hong traced it down and found that the person that the client asked Wang Rui to check is none other than Li Hai.  

Advertisements

Now things can be linked together.

Let’s assume that Wang Rui was commissioned to investigate Li Hai’s cheating, but then used the affair to blackmail Li Hai.

Although Li Hai paid the money, he still couldn’t get rid of Wang Rui, so he decided to set up a trap to kill him. 

But there is one thing that still doesn’t make sense in this scenario: why make Liao Xiaoqing do it?  

Li Hong replied: “Maybe he thinks that since Liao Xiaoqing is sick, she won’t be sentenced too harshly even if she gets caught and she’ll probably get an acquittal if she’s lucky.” 

“That’s still too much trouble, finding a professional killer would have been more efficient and neat. Wang Rui didn’t run or struggle, he just lay there to be slashed, it’s likely that he was already put down, so why bother with Liao Xiaoqing and make her stab him with a knife?!” Mo Yun also tried to make sense of the situation. 

Advertisements

At this time, Xia Fan who had been out running the whole day came back, she seemed very excited because she had brought back some good news:

” I found out that Li Hai is Liao Xiaoyu’s Gold Master. The house where the sisters live in was originally Li Hai’s, it was transferred to Liao Xiaoyu’s name three years ago and he still transfers money to Liao Xiaoyu’s account every month.”

The Raccoon Ate The Dragon: Part 2

♡♡♡ The Raccoon and the Dragon meeting ♡♡♡♡

“Meiko Tanuki, a raccoon, 26, was dumped on Christmas Eve by my boyfriend, who was two years older than me and who I was planning to marry ! Yay!”

Advertisements

“All you ungodly people who are turning a holy night into a sexual night, all of you must perish!”

I say that out loud as I raise my beer mug, and by the way by then I couldn’t remember how many I’ve had so far, and chug it down.

With a resounding laugh, the people around me say: “Good! ‘Yes! Yes! Perish!” and other warm cheers were sent to me.

I put my mug down on the counter and called out to the bar lady in the back: “One more mug, please!

“Oh, little girl, you better stop now.”

“That’s nice. You got a craving for a drink too, young lady. Come on, I’ll buy you a nice piece of chicken. Eat up, eat up.”

“Kyaaah! Thanks, Uncle!”

Advertisements

I ate the yakitori given to me by the old man who was sitting next to me with a mug in one hand that the bar lady served me.

Oh, it was delicious.

This small restaurant was occupied by men in their 50s and 60s on average who were very kind to women who are drinking alone and desperate on Christmas Eve.

Not only the man sitting next to me, but also the group of guys at the table, the guys who had to leave after a couple of drinks had bought me beers and a few knick-knacks.

And most importantly, the bar lady at the counter!

She gently listened to me as I cried woozily after taking a drink as soon as I entered the restaurant.

I had a boyfriend who was two years older than me. He was my senior at work and my mentor when I was a rookie.

He confessed his love to me when my first year as a rookie was about to end, and it was my first relationship.

Advertisements

We have been together for four years.

His name was Shinjo Shinjo.

He was handsome, tall, good at his job, and was called the best young man in the world… Honestly, when he confessed his love to me, I wondered if he was dared to do it as some punishment game.

I had my doubts.

See, I have never been popular.

My nickname since my childhood days has been “Tanuki-chan”, which is a combination of my habitual natural perm, chubby, childish face, droopy eyes, and my last name.

Advertisements

I tried to apply makeup, dress myself up and lose weight with the aim of making my debut in college, but I don’t know if it’s my constitution or my weak will, but I ended up with a chubby body that’s far from slender and it’s still growing.

He told me that I had a cute round face with droopy eyes, that my chubby body was comfortable to hold, that it was soothing and that my particularly large breasts were Shinjou-san’s favorite.

He then did this and that to me…and taught me a lot.

Yes, after I gave my virginity to him, he developed my body a lot!

Advertisements

I had been sweet-talking him about getting married next year, but that bastard, of all things, switched to a new girl in the same department, and one that I was in charge of supervising.

Fushimi Reiko was a beauty in her own right.

She had long, straight black hair and a slender, single-layered face as neat as a doll’s. Her breasts and hips were shaped like a model with long arms and legs. If she stands next to me, stocky and stubby, even though we are both women, the difference is obvious.

In other words, she’s the opposite of me.

If I was a raccoon, Fushimi-san was a fox…or rather; she was too godlike to be a fox.

The Case Of The 27 Knife Stabs: Chapter 5 – Part 2

Han Zecheng asked Xia Fan to find Pan Li and check what other clues Wang Rui had left behind while he was going to take Mo Yun to meet Li Hai.

Little Li Zi will stay at the police station and keep an eye on the IT division to see what else can be uncovered.

Advertisements

Li Hai’s company is called Xinyang International; it is a well-known company and a big taxpayer.

Both Li Hai and his wife, Yang Shufang, are successful entrepreneurs who have made many appearances in the economic sections of various media outlets.

The meeting with Li Hai didn’t amount to much.

He admitted to having received a blackmail letter, but he didn’t admit to having an appointment to meet the other person.

He even said he didn’t know the other person was Wang Rui.

Li Hai claimed that he didn’t take the email seriously because he hadn’t received any delivery at all and he thought it was just a prank email.

Advertisements

Han Zecheng took the printed copy of the email and placed it in front of Li Hai.

Li Hai looked at it for a moment looking a bit stunned but still shook his head and said he hadn’t replied to that email, he hadn’t seen the other party, and he didn’t know what the other party was planning to use to blackmail him.

Han Zecheng also asked Li Hai if he recognized the murderer Liao Xiaoqing, but Li Hai still said no.

When asked where he was on May 17, he only said he was somewhere outdoors.

Han Zecheng also asked if there is anyone who can testify to his whereabouts, but Li Hai shook his head and said there was no one.

He called his lawyer and told Han Zecheng: “Officer Han, what I have said is the truth. If you ever find any evidence linking me to the murder, please come back with an arrest warrant. I am afraid I still have some business to do so if there’s anything else you want to know, please talk to my lawyer.”

Advertisements

Han Zecheng nodded, but did not leave, leisurely seemingly admiring Li Hai’s office.

He stood in front of a painting of sunflowers, took a closer look at it and asked: “Mr. Li, this painting is really nice, I wonder which master’s hand it is from?”

“It’s from a friend. It is not a famous painting. Officer Han, I’m really busy, so please go back” Li Hai clearly gave the eviction order this time.

Han Zecheng smiled and took Mo Yun with him.

Advertisements

He left the building and called Xia Fan: “It’s me; I know who Liao Xiaoqing’s boyfriend is. You go check now if Liao Xiaoyu’s house and bank account transactions are related to Li Hai.”

Mo Yun curiously asked: “Brother Cheng, is Liao Xiaoqing’s boyfriend Li Hai? How do you know that?”

The Case Of The 27 Knife Stabs: Chapter 5 – Part 1

That night, Xia Fan had a sleepless night.

That mysterious boyfriend and the strange number 27 kept spinning in her head.

Advertisements

The next day she returned to the police station early but she found Han Zecheng and The Dragon-Mouse Brothers[1] were already there.

Xia Fan asked: “Is there any new development?”

“Yesterday you reminded me that a lot of black market private detectives are taking jobs online. So we went to Wang Rui’s house last night, got his computer back, and found out that he once sent a blackmail letter to a guy named Li Hai.”

“Li Hai? The CEO of Xinyang International?”

Advertisements

“Yes, according to the email address and the IP of the received email, it should be him.”

“In the email Wang Rui just told Li Hai that if he had already received the delivery and didn’t want things to be posted online, he would have to do what he says.”

It turns out Wang Rui was blackmailing Li Hai for 1 million.

The email included information about the account where the money would be transferred.

But what could make Li Hai gave such a great amount of money?

The reason was not disclosed in the email. They just talked about that delivery.

In the email Li Hai wrote back, he said that direct transfer of money was risky and asked for a cash transaction.

Advertisements

He told Wang Rui to bring the delivery with him and then do an exchange:

Give the money with one hand and get the delivery with the other hand.

They agreed to meet up at the Pavilion in the street garden on Hengyang Road at 2 p.m. on the 10th of April.

After that, the two emailed contact discontinued.

Judging by this email Wang Rui was not that smart.

He thought he would be safe if he gets the money sent to a personal account.

But Li Hai’s side was much shrewder.

This happened a month before Wang Rui’s death.

Advertisements

Is it possible that the results of that deal didn’t satisfy Wang Rui?

He was too greedy and that’s what finally got him killed?

But what does this have to do with Liao Xiaoqing?

Why would they let Liao Xiaoqing kill him though?
