Liu Cheng’s brows wrinkled, but he did not dare to pressure him. He knew very well the capabilities of this coroner. And to say it briefly, the life of Feng Er is dependent on this Sir’s hands; hence, he naturally did not dare to offend him.
“What kind of evidence does Sir still need? Maybe the Prime Minister manor can offer some help?”
That is new. The honourable Prime Minister of the state is actually talking in such a gentle and soft way.
Liu Wei wanted to laugh — she wanted to mock at this wily old fox from the inside and out; but, she still endured it and only nodded her head profoundly, looking upright and aloof, “I am grateful to the Prime Minister for willing to help. However, this case still needs long-term planning. I believe that after I return to the yamen and look through all the related records of this case, I would have some additional ideas.”
Does he still want to look through the records? The child has already been missing for a few hours and you still want to go back and read the records?
That is how a human is — initially, they have already given up because they felt that the child would no longer be alive; but now, someone gave them hope and they naturally did not want to delay even a single second.
Liu Cheng still wanted to say something but Rong Leng had already cut him off.
“It is already late too. Since we have already investigated the crime scene, I will take my leave too.”
Now, Liu Cheng was really anxious, “Lord General, my son’s life……”
“Do not worry, Prime Minister. I understand.” He said but denied giving a positive answer. While the Prime Minister was extremely unsettled, he was as steady as a mountain — calm and composed.
At that moment, Liu Wei was already famished. They all came before having dinner, which meant that she was busily working overtime without having any dinner.
Liu Wei is a person who cannot stand being starved. She was getting impatient long ago; but since the priority was to investigate the case, she endured it. And now that they are done observing the crime scene, she would be letting herself down if she did not reward herself with some scrumptious meal, especially since she used so much brain cells.
Liu Wei walked out of the room. When she saw the crowd of servants kneeling on the ground, she thought for a while and raised her head, “Heaven appreciates people with morals and virtues. Vice Minister, since we have confirmed the culprit, shouldn’t we release these people too?”
The crowd below quickly kowtowed with a thud.
At that point in time, Liu Yu did not dare to offend the simple white-robed gentleman. He respectfully nodded, “Sir is right, I will release them afterwards.”
“And the one that was having fever just now……”
“I thank the Lord for the trouble.” Liu Wei said. She walked along the corridor together with Rong Leng and left the courtyard.
Liu Cheng and Liu Yu were sending them off behind. Right then, the honourable Prime Minister could not even let out a single bit of his arrogance; although with General Rong around, sending them off personally does not dishonour him.
At the outer courtyard, Liu Xiao Li had already made records of the corpse. Under the protective eyes of the capital patrol guards and the magistrate, he dusted his hands, crossed his legs and sat beside the corpse. He then reached out for the corpse’s hands and gently gave the corpse a massage.
The crowd who saw the scene had their hair standing. In the end, it was the Capital Magistrate who carefully asked, “Young child, what are you doing?”
Liu Xiao Li did not even raise his head. He answered naturally, “Giving her a massage — she died too miserably, so I am relaxing her muscles.”
The Capital Magistrate broke out in cold sweat, “Giving, giving the corpse a massage? A corpse has muscles too?”
Liu Xiao Li was baffled, “A corpse is also once a human. Since humans have muscles, why wouldn’t corpses have too?”
“I mean, can she still feel it?” As the Magistrate said, he felt a chill run down his spine.
“She cannot feel it in her heart, but her body feels it.” Liu Xiao Li explained in an experienced tone, “The corpse also has its own muscle tissues; whatever you did to them, they know it very well.”
