Youâ€™re the Only One in My Heart
Yang Chen sighed before he tapped Cai Yan on the head. â€œYou little
idiot. Those are vampire bites! They call themselves the blood race. Back
then, I told you that there are multiple incredibly strong, hidden powers
in the world. And among them are the two divisions of the blood race.
Iâ€™ve actually met them back in the day.â€
Cai Yan squirmed where she stood. â€œDonâ€™t vampires suck blood from
necks? Why would they biteâ€¦ such revolting areasâ€¦?â€
Yang Chen proceeded to explain with a sinister grin. â€œThat was just a
rumor spread by the blood race to conceal their identities and habits.
Blood tastes different when extracted from different parts of the body.
While the neck generally is the most common spot, it is also too obvious
to the naked eye.
â€œBut the arteries in the insides of the thigh, however, are where the
blood is the sweetest and most sumptuous! The blood race are already
well-akin with perversion and sensuality, so for them to snuggle below a
womanâ€™s skirt where the arteries pump fresh blood, was an intriguing
and convenient region to feed on. Not to mention the robust aroma of
â€œUgh, disgusting!â€ Cai Yan had chills through her spine at the
thought of such revolting actions!
Yang Chen had his moment annoying his lover. He thereafter panned out the
plastic wrap over the corpse, before accompanying Cai Yan out of the
forensic room and back to her office.
Lin Ruoxi was waiting for their return as she hurriedly brought herself
to enquire about any crucial findings.
Yang Chen quickly asked, â€œWhereâ€™s Hongyan?â€
â€œSheâ€™s with Lawyer Zhang handling the bailout procedures. He said
that she should be allowed to leave here without a hitch since the
evidence was inconclusive.
â€œIâ€™ve paid Lu Yaoâ€™s family five million yuan in emotional distress
severance. They should leave us alone, and as long as we keep them at
bay, her company would not try to pick a bone with us,â€ Lin Ruoxi
â€œFive million?! A court settlement would have been much much cheaper!
Not to mention the fact that you ainâ€™t even related to this!â€ Cai Yan
exclaimed. â€œRuoxi, why did you pay so much? Lu Yao is a big star. Her
insurance companies are going to pay them a big sum of money. This is the
worst kind of extortion!â€
Lin Ruoxi bitterly explained, â€œShe died at our event, thereâ€™s no
debating that. Plus, five million isnâ€™t much for peace of mind.
Naturally, if they were to further spread false rumors about us, we would
halt the funding instantly.â€
Cai Yan came to understand her reasoning. â€œYâ€™know sometimes I feel
like youâ€™re too soft. Did Wang Gang and his men give you a hard time?â€œ
Lin Ruoxi pouted at Yang Chen before she added, â€œThose thugs seemed to
be genuinely terrified by this brat over here. After you left, they gave
some spiel about investigating the crime scene and left immediately.â€™
â€How was I a brat? That was a heroic act I did there,â€ Yang Chen
Cai Yan, however, clapped enthusiastically as she exclaimed, â€œOh my,
what a surprise! Those people are the most incompetent detectives Iâ€™ve
ever seen. It seriously baffles me how they managed to shit talk their
way through the field all these years! If it werenâ€™t for the federal
bureau in their defense, I wouldâ€™ve kicked their hinds and sent them
scurrying a long time ago!â€
Lin Ruoxi giggled. â€œAlright Yanyan, why donâ€™t we talk about what you
found out in the forensics room? My only wish, for now, is for this to be
settled and dusted as soon as possible. Ous US stocks are declining
because of the incident.
â€œBesides our own associated media coverage, there have only been rumors
all over. â€کYu Lei has been undermining their competitorsâ€™,
â€کPresident Lin masterminded the execution of a rival superstarâ€™.
These were but some of the headlining titles that were spread.â€
Yang Chen was somewhat dispirited as he blabbered, â€œThis case might be
easier investigated than to conclude I reckonâ€¦â€
Eyeing Lin Ruoxiâ€™s confused gaze, Yang Chen summarized their findings
from the beginning.
Upon the revelation that the murderer might be a vampire, Lin Ruoxi felt
like her head was about to explode!
Yang Chen then said, â€œRuoxi, you remember how I acted all hostile to Lu
Yao even though weâ€™ve just met?â€
Lin Ruoxi nodded as she perplexed, â€œYouâ€™re saying you knew she was
tied to the blood race at that moment? Oh right, you mentioned something
about her â€کfather figureâ€™ and her expression instantly changed. Does
her relationship with her father figure have anything to do with the
â€œIt isnâ€™t a normal relationship,â€ Yang Chen explained. â€œI could
sense the presence of the blood race encompassing her. It wasnâ€™t too
overbearing per se, but she sure was in line to become one of them.
â€œAnd in the process of being a member of the blood race, more commonly
known as â€کinitial embraceâ€™, which putting it simply is the process of
letting a man of the blood race consume a large amount of a mortalâ€™s
blood, regurgitate, then inject the fused blood back into the body of the
mortal theyâ€™ve been feeding on.
But due to the difference between our physiques with Caucasians, the
blood does not fuse uniformly. A brash attempt in an â€کinitial
embraceâ€™ would result in the failure of complete blood circulation
through her heart.
That said, she most likely was still in the first stage. A lowly flesh
slave, a sacrificial lamb devoting her blood to her vampire overlord.
That would explain her lack of abilities but strong scent.â€
â€œWhat youâ€™re implying is thatâ€¦ Lu Yao wanted to be a vampire? But
why?â€ Cai Yan was dumbfounded by the concept of vampires in her head.
Yang Chen shook his hands in denial. â€œYou gotta understand that the
greatest trait of the blood race is their immortality and their inability
to age. Those alone are exceptionally appealing to the likes of young,
gorgeous women with no intention of losing their beauty and allure.
â€œBesides, the blood race is hardly as obscene as what humans picture
them to be. Other than a few who have grown tired of their everlasting
vigor and wanted to mess around, the rest of them pretty much keep to
â€œWhat I am most curious about is why one blood race member has murdered
Lu Yao. Was he the one she had succumbed to? If he was, then what would
his motives be? If otherwise, then thereâ€™s proof that there is a
significant presence within our vicinity.â€
Lin Ruoxi analytically contemplated, before she proclaimed, â€œAnd how
does any of that prove that her murderer was indeed a vampire? If it was,
he wouldnâ€™t need a fruit knife to do it, would he?â€
Yang Chen snapped his fingers. â€œGood question, Ruoxi. And it was
because of that fruit knife that I can confirm someone from the blood
race is responsible for her death. Think about it, where was the wound of
the fruit knife?â€
After a moment of contemplation, Lin Ruoxiâ€™s eyes glowed from
enlightenment. â€œI got it! He used the fruit knife to hide the wound
lying close to the artery, which in turn kept the bite wounds shielded by
a grotesque demolishing of the scar!â€
â€œExactly. Usually, with makeup applied over the neck, a concealed wound
could easily be identified by the forensics team. But this time the
culprit utilized a trick of pure genius, and wouldâ€™ve gotten away with
it until their overconfidence took over because they left the hidden scar
between her thighs.â€ Yang Chen let out an accomplished smirk.
â€œIf thatâ€™s the case, then why were Hongyanâ€™s fingerprints on the
fruit knife?â€ Cai Yan enquired.
Yang Chen replied, â€œThe blood race has been effortlessly preying on
humans due to their pre-existing ability to induce hallucinations.
â€œHongyan must have been mind-controlled the moment she barged into the
dressing room and did as she was instructed to. She picked up the fruit
knife, threw it on the couch, and only came back to her senses once the
man was gone.
â€œAs such, Hongyan has effectively become the scapegoat, and all crimes
have been transferred into the hands of Yu Lei International.â€
Lin Ruoxi and Cai Yan took a glance at one another, seemingly grasping
the situation through each other.
â€œYouâ€™re horrible! If you knew all this while that thereâ€™s something
off about Lu Yao, why didnâ€™t you tell me upfront?! If you paid slightly
more attention then she couldâ€™ve made it through tonight!â€ Lin Ruoxi
vented her frustration on her husband as she smacked him on the back.
Yang Chen smiled bitterly. â€œI meanâ€¦ Dear, people everywhere have
dreamed about becoming a member, even if they were a lowly flesh slave.
There really wasnâ€™t anything extremely obnoxious about her presence,
besides her self-centered personality. Wasnâ€™t that why you were furious
in the first place? Not like you care if sheâ€™s still aliveâ€¦
â€œBesides, youâ€™re the only one in my heart, there isnâ€™t any space
left for other womenâ€¦â€
â€œPfft, that has to be the most blatant lie Iâ€™ve ever heard!â€ Lin
Ruoxi aggravatedly rolled her eyes on him. Nonetheless, to hear that
remark right next to Cai Yan left her feeling rather accomplished.
As for Cai Yan, listening to Yang Chen blabbering nonsense by her side,
she couldnâ€™t help but give him a tight pinch on the waist. Knowing full
well of her position as the third wheel, that was the furthest she could
go to vent her anger.
Yang Chen simultaneously cackled at Lin Ruoxiâ€™s coy reaction, while
comforting Cai Yan on the back of her hand, trying his best to curb the
ambers on both ends.If only dealing with relationships was as easy as
dueling monsters and beastsâ€¦he thought.
The causation and evidence might have been concluded, but those were just
the beginning of their problems.
â€œWho can this man be, to first murder Lu Yao, then frame our
company?â€ Lin Ruoxi frustratedly asked.
Yang Chen gave it a thought. â€œThatâ€™s the part where we have to find
the culprit, then everything will fall into place.â€
â€œYang Chen, Iâ€™m sure you have a plan like you always do, donâ€™t
you?â€ Cai Yan enquired with anticipation.
Yang Chen awkwardly replied, â€œI wouldâ€™ve already done it if I could.
At my best, I would definitely be able to track their scent. But the
problem is that I donâ€™t know where to start. The blood race are able to
dash from place to place quicker than the human eye can see. Finding him
is like finding a needle in a haystack. Even if Iâ€™m a deity, I
wouldnâ€™t know where to start!â€
Lin Ruoxi was rather dispirited as she proclaimed, â€œIf even the likes
of you have exhausted all ideas, there is no chance for us to find the
murderer. We canâ€™t just start a press conference and tell everyone that
the killer was a vampire, but we canâ€™t track him, can we?â€
Yang Chen blinked, before he cracked a devilish smile. â€œRest assured, I
might be out of ideas, but that doesnâ€™t mean weâ€™re helpless. You
gotta know that the blood race have six restrictions. This individual
from the blood race has obviously broken the â€کseclusionâ€™ rule, so the
blood race will have to deal with that themselves. Wouldnâ€™t that make
things so much easier for us?â€
