casually asked a few more questions, and they said that the deceased and his wife, Yan Li, were pretty much an exemplary couple in their hearts, and everyone was particularly envious of the feelings between them.”


“But I remember Hong Yong saying the deceased’s relationship with his wife was never harmonious…” Fang Zhi said as he wiped the sweat on his face.



Gu Xizhou froze for a moment, recalling the expressions of Hong Yong and Liu Xue when they answered questions.
It didn’t seem like they were lying.


“Gu Ge, I’ll go to Yan Li’s company and ask about her situation!”

Gu Xizhou told Fang Zhi the results of the autopsy report, worried that Fang Zhi would be going over for nothing.
However, Fang Zhi said: “It’s okay if I go over for nothing, I’m not afraid of trouble.
I’m just afraid that this case won’t be thoroughly investigated, and the grievous wrong done to the deceased will be wiped clean.”


Hearing Fang Zhi’s words, Gu Xizhou could only shake his head and let him go. 


Gu Xizhou, who didn’t know how to investigate, stared at the autopsy report for a while more.
Thinking of Fang Zhi’s words, he turned back to ask someone to investigate the recent phone conversations between Yan Li and Yang Zhi.


“Leader Gu, the two of them didn’t contact each other on the day itself.
There were only three calls in the last week, and this is the call record.”


Gu Xizhou took the call record from the female police officer and looked at it for a while.
He pointed at a few numbers that had been called quite a few times, and said, “Help me to investigate who owns these phone numbers, what their names are, what their occupations are, and how they’re related to the deceased and his wife.”


“Okay, I’ll inform the technical department immediately.”


In less than half an hour, Gu Xizhou had the details of the owners of those numbers in front of him.
Most of the people who had contacted the deceased were business customers, while the people who contacted Yan Li were more interesting.
The number she had contacted the most was a doctor at an orthopedic hospital. 


“Contact this Doctor Lin, and ask them about the situation.”



Gu Xizhou sat at the side, listening to his subordinate call Doctor Lin. 


Doctor Lin: “Hello, what’s the matter?”


“Hello, this is the Jinluo Police Bureau, we would like to ask you a few questions.
Is it convenient to ask now?”


The person on the other side joked, “Is this a real or fake policeman? I’m 27 years old, no sons or daughters, so don’t tell me my son got into an accident or some silly story like that.”


“En… if you’re not assured, you can come directly to the Jinluo Police Bureau,” the policeman who called explained to him.


“Oh, I’m just kidding.
Lately, people have always been doing these sort of scam calls, wouldn’t you say, Comrade Police?”


“Do you know a Ms Yan, Yan Li? We investigated and found that the two of you often communicate over the phone.”


The woman on the other side of the phone raised her voice by about eight levels: “I know, I know! Did she finally stop resisting and called the police? I can testify! Her beast of a husband keeps beating her, and we often call each other because of this.
Because of that man’s domestic violence, she often comes to our hospital to get medicine or something, and that’s how I got to know her.”


“I’m telling you, you must catch him.
I have Yan Li’s medical records for the past two years to use as evidence, okay?! Yesterday, she even came to the hospital to find me!”


Gu Xizhou froze.
“Domestic violence? But I just saw her, and she didn’t seem hurt.”



Hearing Gu Xizhou’s voice, Doctor Lin said passionately: “Aiya, that shameless man who should be hacked to pieces! When he hits her, he only hits on the parts of the body that won’t be exposed! I’ve never seen this kind of guy before, I keep advising Yan Li to divorce him, but she just refuses to do so, and I seriously can’t understand what’s wrong with her! She can even tolerate this kind of man! Just thinking of it makes me angry!”

“Don’t get so excited first…”


The policeman who was calling wrote out a transcript.
Gu Xizhou listened for a while, and furrowed his brows.
When the call ended, Fang Zhi on the other side called him again.


“Gu Ge, I asked around at Yan Li’s company, and Yan Li doesn’t have any enemies.
They also said the same thing as the deceased’s colleagues, that the two of them had a very good relationship… On Valentine’s day, flowers would be sent to the hospital, something that’s rarely seen at their age, so everyone envied them.”


“Interesting.” Gu Xizhou shook his head, and glanced at the time.
“Let’s end it here today.
You don’t have to report to the police station, just go straight home.”



When Gu Xizhou returned home, he threw the case materials on the sofa, went into his room, and took out the photo album that he had placed there yesterday.


After opening the album, Gu Xizhou froze.
The photo actually wasn’t in the album.
Upon proving that the photo in his hand really was the one from yesterday, Gu Xizhou subconsciously looked around, but he didn’t find anything.


Or maybe he wasn’t able to see anything?


In the middle of the night, Gu Xizhou pretended to sleep for a long time, but he still didn’t see even a single shadow!



After a night where nothing happened, Gu Xizhou dragged his dark eyebags to the police bureau.
Right as the car stopped outside the police bureau, he encountered Fang Zhi, who had just walked in.


From these past two days, Gu Xizhou learnt that Fang Zhi’s family circumstances weren’t too good.
It was a single-parent family, and they sold their only house to pay for their mother’s treatment, but Fang Zhi’s mother still wasn’t able to escape the palm of Death, leaving Fang Zhi and a little sister studying in university.  Other than renting a house, Fang Zhi’s salary was sent to his sister every month, for her to use as living expenses. 


Gu Xizhou waved his hand and put it on Fang Zhi’s shoulder.
“Let’s go and eat breakfast together!”


The two people found somewhere to casually eat a meal.
As they ate, Fang Zhi suddenly took out his phone, and after knocking around on it, suddenly shouted in shock.
“Gu Ge, the deceased was actually the neighbour of the deceased in the burglary case 819!


Gu Xizhou paused, looking at him, a face full of confusion.


This was what and what?


Fang Zhi pointed at the materials that Gu Xizhou set aside.
The outermost page of the material was folded in, revealing just a corner, and on that corner were the words  “House Robbery Case 819?” written in pencil.
Gu Xizhou opened it to take a look.
The materials that were just blank yesterday had suddenly a lot of comments written on it, with a deep analysis written on everyone’s words.


Fang Zhi looked at Gu Xizhou with a face full of admiration: “Gu Ge, the deceased just showed his face in this piece of news, but you actually thought of the connection between them! You’re seriously too great!”


Gu Xizhou: “???”


… I don’t know if this is related or not, but there must be some ghostly things in my house!

soya: (i read as i tl, so i don’t know what happens in the future!!) somehow i think the actual policeman Gu Xizhou is still alive… but this useless demonic cultivator turned policeman Gu Xizhou can’t sense him…
