Before he went up stairs, Gu Xizhou kept his eyes trained on Si Yu’s classy Maybach.

Seeing Gu Xizhou looking at his car, Si Yu walked over to him and lowered his voice to ask, “What, is there something wrong with my car?”



Gu Xizhou, “No.
Why didn’t you drive the blue Lamborghini? Don’t you like that one a lot?”

Without thinking, Si Yu said, “The blue one is okay, but I don’t like it a lot.
It wasn’t suitable for the meeting at the subsidiary company today.” 

Gu Xizhou muttered to himself, thinking it was better not to talk to Si Yu.


The car the local tyrant drove when going out depended on the situation.
Gu Xizhou couldn’t understand it.
Afterall, he drove a Land Rover, and if he crashed it… he would have to take a taxi to work.

Any pity he had for Si Yu before was gone.

The local tyrant didn’t need pity.


“After finding out that someone was killed, we immediately asked our staff to bring up the surveillance footage.
The man in black, yes, it’s him, he’s the killer!”

Gu Xizhou pinched his brows as he stared at the screen watching as the man in black followed the deceased’s car into the shopping mall.

The suspect wore a black coat, black hat, face mask, and black gloves.
His clothes didn’t have any logos or any other defining features.
He could only see that he was between 1.7 and 1.75 meters tall and that he was in good shape.


The suspect entered the parking lot and quickly unlocked the car before waiting for the deceased to return. 

When the victim had finished their errand and returned, the suspect killed them in the car in under a minute and threw away the murder weapon, leaving like nothing had happened.

The suspect was very calm and collected throughout the whole thing.
No panic, no signs of distress.
On the contrary, the whole thing seemed to be very premeditated.

Putting all the clues together, it was clear that the suspect was the killer.
It was likely that this man was hired to kill!

“Big boss, I don’t know why this guy chose to kill someone here,” Yu Yang wiped the cold sweat from his brow, “I…”

Yu Yang touched a hand to the cold sweat on his forehead.
Without trying to deny anything, he took the blame onto himself, “President Si, I didn’t handle this affair well, I am the one who is responsible.”

“Please give me another chance, I will resolve this affair quickly!” 

Si Yu ignored him, instead searching for a cigarette.
After he found one, he touched his finger to it for a long time as if it was a lighter.
Yu Yang hastily dug out a lighter and offered it to Si Yu, but Si Yu didn’t take it.

Being rejected by Si Yu threw Yu Yang’s heart into disarray.
He feared he really was going to be laid-off in middle age just like the last one!


Si Yu lit the cigarette and sucked in a deep breath, his eyes drooping slightly.
Seeing Yu Yang’s anxious expression, Si Yu waved his hand and said, “This matter doesn’t concern you.
People are inevitably going to die and you can’t stop it forever.
Go get busy.”

Yu Yang heard Si Yu and stood there as if struck by lightning.

Si Yu finished smoking and snuffed the cigarette butt out.
With a moody and indecipherable expression, he turned to look at Gu Xizhou standing in the surveillance room frowning.

He smiled.
Someone died and Gu Xizhou was more anxious than him.
Si Yu put his hands in his pockets, and they bulged as if he was holding something.

Inside the surveillance room——

Fang Zhi, “Gu Ge, this person followed the deceased into the shopping mall.
He was targeting the deceased from the beginning.” 

“I know.
The suspect didn’t leave behind any fingerprints, DNA, or show any distinguishing characteristics.” Gu Xizhou bowed his head, continuing to watch the replay on the monitor as he secretly let out a sigh of relief.
A hired hitman was different from a fugitive.
So long as the identity of the deceased and their relationships were investigated it was still possible to solve a case involving a hitman.
The deceased’s identity would play a crucial role in solving the case.

While Gu Xizhou was thinking, his cell phone rang, and he turned to find Si Yu’s pitch black eyes staring at him, his gaze especially pensive.

Gu Xizhou mistakenly thought that Si Yu was concerned about the murder and patted him on the shoulder as he left to answer the phone, saying, “Don’t worry, we will find the murderer soon.
We won’t be in your way for long.”

“I’m not worried.” 

Gu Xizhou noticed that there wasn’t much tension in the other person’s eyes.
Apparently he really wasn’t very concerned.

Gu Xizhou shook his head and didn’t think much of it as he answered the phone.

After a period of time he returned and Fang Zhi turned to look at him expectantly.
Gu Xizhou nodded and Fang Zhi immeditadly let out  a breath.

The identity of the deceased had already been confirmed. 

“Liao Shuang, 46, Deceased.
Married and divorced.
Graduated university to help manage the finances for his family’s business.
Now he is the director of this business’s financial affairs.
Native to Ningqing,” Gu Xizhou said, lowering his voice to relay the information about the deceased’s identity to Fang Zhi.

After verifying the deceased’s identity, the police immediately notified their family.

Two people with grizzled hair immediately rushed over.
“Is it really my son?”

“This is your son’s license plate, ba? We looked at the photograph, it really is him…”

They didn’t dare let the olderly couple look at the body.
Even after simply looking at the photo they collapsed to the floor, their bodies wracked with sobs.

Several women came over and comforted them for about half an hour before they finally calmed down.
The father of the deceased felt for his phone and made a call.
“Son, when are you coming home? When are you coming over, ah….
Your Didi… Your Didi is dead…”


“I- I’ll come right away.
Dad, mom, don’t cry, don’t panic, I’m coming over right now!” The person on the other end of the phone massaged his forehead, his palms breaking out in a cold sweat.

Everyone left the monitoring room and went to the underground parking lot just in time to see the two old people weeping miserably.
Gu Xizhou didn’t go over to ask questions for the time being. 

“Lao Gu, what’s the situation?” Xiang Yuan asked, peeling off his gloves as he approached Gu Xizhou.

Gu Xizhou, “You were right.
The killer’s techniques were very skilled.
He is probably a professional hit man.”

“This is very troublesome,” Xiang Yuan shook his head.
Taking note of Si Yu standing on the other side of Gu Xizhou, he frowned and said, “Hey, who are you, ah?”

Si Yu reached out a hand: “Hello, I’m Si Yu.
This shopping mall is mine.” 

When Xiang Yuan heard this name, he was stunned and asked with uncertainty, “You said… You’re Si Yu? Do you and Lao Gu already know each other?”

“Yes, ah.
Why?” Si Yu asked, turning towards him, “Is that a problem?”

“What the fuck! Not only is there a problem there is a big problem!” Xiang Yuan turned his head subconsciously towards Gu Xizhou, dragging him into a corner while talking, “Is he the one you were talking with on WeChat yesterday?”

Gu Xizhou: “Yes.” 

“What the fuck! So that’s it, ah! I thought you really wanted to be a single dog for the rest of your life!” Xiang Yuan turned to Gu Xizhou clutching his chest as he asked, “Lao Gu, speak honestly, have you ever thought about my handsome white coat?”

Gu Xizhou knew where Xiang Yuan was going and glared at him, “Aren’t you thinking too much, ba? Also please look in the mirror!”

“I looked this morning,” Xiang Yuan said winking at Gu Xizhou, “I look just like I used to.
I can’t tell that I’m the father of a three year-old child and not a fresh faced university graduate.”

Gu Xizhou: “……” 

“You really gave him your first kiss! Yesterday I thought Si Yu was a girl’s name.” Xiang Yuan took in a deep breath with a calm expression on his face but thousands of mud horses had already galloped past his heart.

Gu Xizhou glanced at him and said, “It’s not what you think! There’s a reason!”

“I know, I know!”

Xiang Yuan nodded like a chick pecking grain with an expression of understanding.
Gu Xizhou glanced at him and shook his head, not in the mood to explain. 

Xiang Yuan’s expression changed when he looked at Si Yu, silently shaking off Gu Xizhou as he made a beeline for Si Yu.
He gripped Si Yu’s hand and introduced himself, “I’m a good friend of Lao Gu’s.
My name is Xiang Yuan.
Here is my contact information.”

Confronted by the suddenly enthusiastic Xiang Yuan, Si Yu was at a loss, but he still exchanged phone numbers with the other person.


“By the way, I know the answer to the question you asked Lao Gu yesterday!” Xiang Yuan nudged Si Yu’s arm with his shoulder, his face full of gossip.

Si Yu looked confused, “Ah?” 

Xiang Yuan: “I saw your messages yesterday, and I can guarantee that that was definitely his first kiss!”

Si Yu heard this and looked distracted.

At this moment Gu Xizhou walked over to see the evil smile on Xiang Yuan’s face and raised an eyebrow, “What are you two talking about?”

Xiang Yuan shook his head, “Nothing!” 

Gu Xizhou turned to Si Yu, Si Yu’s dark eyes lowered slightly as he smiled at Gu Xizhou and shook his head.
