Ghost Crossing - Chapter 6
Rong Hongqian recalled it carefully and finally shook his head: “Because of my identity, I was afraid of being rejected. I deliberately avoided the crowd, so I am sure that there was no one nearby!”
Professor Qi also nodded at Fu Xiaowan and confirmed Rong Hongqian’s words.
Fu Xiaowan put her thumb on her lips. After carefully listening to Rong Hongqian’s words, her eyebrows puckered slightly and asked a question: “According to what you said, no one knows that you two became a couple. Am I right?”
“Yes!” Rong Hongqian nodded for sure, and so did Professor Qi beside her. She died before telling anyone.
It seems, we’re at a dead end again, wait!
Fu Xiaowan swirled her eyes and stared at Rong Hongqian, asking, “Wait, you just said that you were encouraged to confess by a good friend.”
“Yes, he is my best friend. We grew up together. ” Rong Hongqian began to respond casually, but soon reacted. Fu Xiaowan doubted his friend, and hurriedly added, “He is a boy, and right now he is my roommate. Besides, he has a girlfriend who’s been in a good relationship for years.”
“Ahem!” Fu Xiaowan coughed awkwardly, well, she did think, it was a girl. Maybe she had been secretly in love with Rong Hongqian. But it was a guy… he can also be secretly in love.
“In short, it seems that there is a third person who knows what you wanted to confess. Can you be sure that your best friend wouldn’t tell others about this?” Fu Xiaowan still thought that this matter should be related to Rong Hongqian.
Rong Hongqian’s face turned stiff, and he said, “This boy doesn’t hide anything from his girlfriend, and his girlfriend has a big mouth!”
Fu Xiaowan’s lips quivered. Now it looked like the scope had increased quite a bit and the trail could finally continue.
She glanced at Professor Qi secretly, saw the light of hope in her eyes, smiled comforting at her, and immediately said to Rong Hongqian, “Looks like we should go find your best friend.”
Yet, Rong Hongqian’s face suddenly looked ugly. Was it because of him that Qi Yan was killed? His heart became heavy for a moment.
However, it was more important to find out the murderer. Rong Hongqian took a deep breath and took a deep look at the direction of the human figure, whispering: “Yan’er, wait for me!”
Professor Qi on the side, naturally heard these words. In an instant, her tears almost flooded again.
After calling to ask where his best friend was, Rong Hongqian and Fu Xiaowan started to move.
Rong Hongqian was right. His best friend and his girlfriend had a good relationship, but they were bored with each other at the moment. After receiving the phone call, he immediately took his girlfriend along for the meeting.
Rong Hongqian’s best friend was Wang Li, and his girlfriend was Qin Lan. When they came over, they were very surprised to see Rong Hongqian and Fu Xiaowan walking together.
Because Wang Li and Qin Lan didn’t have classes today, they had been playing outside the school, so they didn’t hear the news of Qi Yan’s death. When they saw Rong Hongqian with a heavy face and the notorious Fu Xiaowan, they couldn’t help but look at each other. They even had a tacit understanding. Did Rong Hongqian get turned down, and even got entangled with such a thing as Fu Xiaowan when he was sad?
After all, Wang Li was Rong Hongqian’s best friend, and dared to say anything to him. He rushes forward quickly, grabbed Rong Hongqian and drags him aside. From time to time, he looked at Fu Xiaowan, disappointed and asks, “How did you get mixed up with a woman like Fu Xiaowan? Didn’t you go confess? Were you rejected?”
Hearing the confession, Rong Hongqian’s face darkened even more as he vented in a somber tone, “Qi Yan, she… she’s dead!”
“What?!!” Wang Li was shocked! His voice also increased, drawing sideways glances from those nearby people. He quickly lowered his voice and said incredulously, “How?”
Obviously, Qi Yan’s death was so sudden. How could she die so suddenly!?
Thinking that he encouraged his friend Rong Hongqian to confess yesterday, Wang Li patted Rong Hongqian on the shoulder with comfort and said with regret, “Qian, don’t feel bad, buddy. Buy you a drink tonight and get drunk!”
Rong Hongqian gave a wry smile. In fact, he isn’t sad at all now, because he already had a plan. He looked at his friend Wang Li with extremely serious eyes, and asked very seriously, “Wang Li, I asked you, who did you tell about my confession?”
Wang Li was shocked and immediately scratched his head awkwardly: “Well, I told Qin Lan! Really, I only told her alone!” However, he also remembered his girlfriend’s big mouth, smiled twice and asked weakly, “What’s wrong?”
Wang Li wasn’t stupid. Rong Hongqian said what he wanted to confess, but Qi Yan died, and he came to ask this matter specially. This shows that Qi Yan’s death was very likely to involve himself, and the only thing he has done was tell his girlfriend that his friend wanted to confess. His girlfriend must have told others, and his heart suddenly sank.
If that’s the reason, he’d like to smack himself in the mouth!
While they were talking, Qin Lan also met Fu Xiaowan, but Qin Lan’s attitude and expression were quite bad. She spoke to Fu Xiaowan with disgust, and the first sentence started sarcastically, “Fu Xiaowan, don’t you dare pester Hongqian, you are not worthy of him!”
Fu Xiaowan touched her nose bitterly. Well, she does have a bad reputation at school, but it’s not as if she has anything to do with Rong Hongqian. So why would she open her mouth to hurt someone so brazenly?
It doesn’t matter if the whole school insults Fu Xiaowan sarcastically, because it was said behind her back, and no one insulted her in person. If someone insults in person, Fu Xiaowan would expressed that she wasn’t a nice person to talk to.
Therefore, at the moment, Qin Lan’s words and attitude made Fu Xiaowan dissatisfied. Yes, she was only dissatisfied, but she couldn’t get angry. Therefore, she only gently picked her eyebrows and said in a cool tone: “You’re Rong Hongqian’s best friend’s girlfriend, aren’t you being very bitchy about Rong Hongqian wanting to confess his love to Qi Yan!?”
B*tch! Those two words irritated Qin Lan and Qin Lan cursed in annoyance, “You b*tch, what right do you have to ask me about my business? I said it’s none of your business!”
“Heh~” Fu Xiaowan laughed contemptuously and said in a dark, cheeky tone, “What if it’s because you’re a nosy bitch that got Qi Yan killed!”
“What?! What?!” Qin Lan suddenly surprised, “Qi Yan is dead? How is that possible? Your lying to me!”
Fu Xiaowan stared at Qin Lan with cold eyes and said word for word, “Dead! This morning, after Rong Hongqian confessed, Qi Yan fell from the top of the teacher’s building.”
Qin Lan’s head instantly started to turn in thinking. How could she fall to her death? Why? Even if she didn’t accept Rong Hongqian’s confession, she didn’t have to die… Is it because Rong Hongqian was angered by the rejection?
