Chapter 46

       Chen Yuncheng’s mind went blank for a short while until his lips were forcefully opened, and the shallow kiss turned into a deep one.

       This was an experience he had never experienced before. While his heart was beating violently, he reached out to push Ning Junyan.

       Because of his resistance, Ning Junyan pressed himself even tighter against him, pressing his entire body against the wall of the corridor, and at the same time his hand pressed on the back of Chen Yuncheng’s neck slightly harder.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t know that the back of his neck would feel so tense, as a numb tingling sensation ran along his back, and he was forced to tilt his head higher, while his legs involuntarily bent up.

       He had always known Ning Junyan was very strong, but he had rarely experienced the other party’s strength. This was the first time Chen Yuncheng had so clearly felt Ning Junyan’s strong control, that he couldn’t he couldn’t move under the cover of the other party’s body.

       Chen Yuncheng almost wanted to give up resisting. From the start, his refusal was not so firm. Not only he agreed to this kiss, but he was also the one who instigated it first.

       But Ning Junyan clearly planned to push forward, he continued the kiss for a long time, as if he had no intention of stopping, and the hand that was wrapped around Chen Yuncheng’s back waist began to slowly slide downwards.

       Chen Yuncheng became frightened and used a lot of strength to push Ning Junyan away from him.

       The two stood facing each other in the corridor, and the sensor light went on and off again.

       Chen Yuncheng was slightly out of breath. He couldn’t continue to stare at Ning Junyan, so he lowered his head and bent down, propping his hands on his knees.

       Ning Junyan was still looking at him and said, “It’s my first time kissing someone, I wonder if you like it or not?”

       Chen Yuncheng instantly felt his face burn. He quickly glanced at Ning Junyan, then lowered his eyes again, unwilling to answer this question.

       Ning Junyan said, “It might feel better with more experience.”

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t stand it anymore, he slid against the wall and sat on the ground, raised his hands to cover his face, and said, “Stop making trouble.”

       Ning Jun took a step forward, squatted in front of him, and extended a hand towards him.

       Chen Yuncheng saw it between the gaps between his fingers, and his hands were slightly lowered, only a pair of eyes were exposed. 

       Ning Junyan asked him, “Let’s go home?”

       Chen Yuncheng was silent for a while, then stretched out a hand to Ning Junyan.

       Ning Junyan pulled him to stand up, and then looked for the key with one hand, and opened the door with the other. He didn’t let go until he entered the door, and said to Chen Yuncheng, “Good night.”

       Chen Yuncheng replied softly, “Good night.”

       After going through too many things in one night, Chen Yuncheng was physically exhausted to the extreme, but his spirit was still high. He felt that all this was like a dream, whether it was the reunion with Zhou Yan from his murder to him surrendering, or his reunion with Ning Junyan to tonight’s kiss, it always felt unreal.

       The bed beneath him was also unreal, it was so soft that it felt like one was constantly sinking when they lie on it and one couldn’t get up even after waking up; it was far less real than the narrow, hard bed Chen Yuncheng had in the kiosk.

       It was late at night when Chen Yuncheng finally really fell asleep. He had many bizarre dreams until he was woken up by the ringing of the phone.

       It was already dawn when he woke up, but the curtains in the room were very effective in blocking light, so the light was still dim. He fumbled to find the mobile phone under the pillow and picked it up without seeing who was calling.

       Long Zhanyu’s voice came from the other side of the phone, saying to him, “The three people who smashed your kiosk have been caught, you have time this afternoon to identify them.”

       “They got caught?” Chen Yuncheng’s mind went blank for a moment, “That efficient, Officer?”

       Long Zhanyu said, “If we don’t arrest those people, we’re afraid they’ll get away.”

       Chen Yuncheng remembered something, “Where’s Zhang Wenyong?”

       Long Zhanyu said, “Zhou Yan testified that Zhang Wenyong was the main culprit of their car theft gang. He has been brought back and is still being interrogated.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Okay.”

       When he hung up the phone, he glanced at the time, it was past ten o’clock in the morning. After he put on his clothes and left the room, Chen Yuncheng heard the silence outside, he opened the door of Ning Junyan’s room and saw that it was indeed empty.

       Ning Junyan’s bed was neatly made and the curtains were open. He should have gone to work at the hospital first thing in the morning.

       Later, he saw a message from Ning Junyan on the dining room table, saying that the breakfast was still warm in the rice cooker. He walked into the kitchen and saw that there were buns and eggs inside, so it must be the breakfast that Ning Junyan had gone out to buy early in the morning.

       He was sitting alone in the dining room eating breakfast, and for some reason, he remembered Ning Junyan getting up early in the morning and going out to buy breakfast. It was too warm, and it didn’t match Ning Junyan’s cold temperament at all, so Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help smiling as he took a sip of milk and swallowed the last piece of bun crust.

       In the afternoon, Chen Yuncheng went to the police station.

       As soon as he entered the hall, he saw Long Zhanyu with a pair of dark circles under his eyes explaining something to a middle-aged woman.

       Long Zhanyu seemed to have not slept since the night shift last night, and Chen Yuncheng felt that there was a smoke coming out of his head.

       When he saw Chen Yuncheng approaching, Long Zhanyu dragged a colleague to continue dealing with the middle-aged woman and beckoned Chen Yuncheng to follow him in to make identification statements.

       Chen Yuncheng looked at the photos and identified all three suspects who had smashed his kiosk.

       With a cigarette in his mouth, Long Zhanyu said, “Okay, you can go now.”

       Chen Yuncheng felt the smoke filling the whole room and he asked Long Zhan Yu, “Can’t get off work yet?”

       Long Zhanyu sat on the chair, looked up at him, and said, “f/ck, isn’t it cause of your affairs?”

       Chen Yuncheng was actually more concerned about Zhou Yan than his own affairs, and he asked Long Zhanyu, “How is Zhou Yan?”

       Long Zhanyu didn’t say anything for a while, then stood up and said to Chen Yuncheng, “Let’s go out and talk.”

       The two of them walked to the parking lot yard in front of the police station. The air here was much better than inside.

       Long Zhanyu said, “On the night when we first arrested Zhang Wenyong, Zhou Yan went to see Zhang Wenyong. It was you who gave him the slip at that time, right?”

       Chen Yuncheng admitted, “At that time, he told me about Zhang Wenyong asking him to sell stolen cars. I told him that the police were already investigating Zhang Wenyong, he seemed quite nervous.”

       “Then I guess he wanted to tip off Zhang Wenyong,” Long Zhanyu said, “but he came at a bad time that day, he was looking for Zhang Wenyong just when he ran into our operation to arrest people, he saw the officer and ran away alone. He said he didn’t know where to go at that time, so he thought he probably wouldn’t get away either, and wanted to get some money together before he was caught, so he went back home and tried to borrow money from his mother.”

       Long Zhanyu didn’t say anything about this. Chen Yuncheng already knew the following things; when Zhou Yan went back to his hometown, his mother happened to be away for those two days. He must have borrowed money from his stepfather, was humiliated, and killed him on the spur of the moment.

       Chen Yuncheng lowered his head and didn’t speak for a long time.

       That night, he borrowed money from Ning Junyan to perform surgery on Zhou Yan’s son. He called Zhou Yan after returning home, but Zhou Yan’s cell phone was turned off. At that time, Zhou Yan should have been running away from the chase, afraid that he would be located, and had not used his own phone after that.

       If he had not left with Ning Junyan that day, or if he had told Zhou Yan that he had a way to borrow money, perhaps Zhou Yan would not have run away, let alone killed someone.

       Chen Yuncheng felt an indescribable discomfort in his heart. He stood quietly for a while, and asked Long Zhanyu, “Can you give me a cigarette?”

       Long Zhanyu handed him a cigarette and lit it for him, “What? Do you suddenly want to smoke?”

       Chen Yuncheng shook his head and said nothing.

       At this time, a taxi pulled up in front of the police station. Chen Yuncheng saw Guan Anlin get off the car, and when Guan Anlin looked up, he saw Chen Yuncheng. Neither of them spoke.

       Long Zhanyu patted Chen Yuncheng on the shoulder and said, “Your brother is here to testify for you. He can prove that Zhang Wenyong asked those three people to smash your kiosk.” After he said that, Long Zhan Yu walked over towards Guan Anlin.
