Chapter 121: What happened in the past (1)
For a moment, Chen Jing’s attention was successfully diverted.
She looked at the report in front of her, and the expression on her face changed greatly.
After a long while, she said in a low voice, “”There’s too little information. It doesn’t prove anything.”
Professor Bai nodded and said, ” it’s been too long. Some things seem to have been deliberately covered up. It’s difficult to find any strong evidence. We’re only guessing at the possibilities for now. However, if the orphanage is really related to the lab that escaped, then there should be at least one person who knows the truth.”
“Zeng Xiaolu?” Chen Jing suddenly raised her head and asked.
Professor Bai nodded and said,”so, if you really have to deal with work now, I suggest you do this.”
regarding how the aptitude users from outside the city smuggled in the weapons, and how they found ways to get information about the Xu family’s father and daughter, old Shen is better at handling it than you, and he’s also more ruthless than you, so you don’t have to worry about this, just leave it to him.
as for the orphanage, it has to be handled by you. If it were anyone else, I
wouldn’t be able to feel at ease.
Chen Jing listened to professor Bails words and was silent for a moment. Then she said, “What’s your principle or bottom line?”
Professor Bai also seemed to have thought about it seriously for a while before she smiled and said, when you start to consider setting a bottom line for your principles, it often shows that you are already panicking and you will not be able to do things comprehensively. So, I don’t intend to set a bottom line for you.
“Just do what you should do!”
“This is the principle or bottom line you should abide by!”
Chen Jing listened carefully and pondered for a moment before she nodded. “I understand.”
Because of the sudden chaos, everyone in satellite city No. 2 was more or less affected.
However, the orphanage that was closer to the guard Station avoided the disaster very well. When Chen Jing’s car stopped below the orphanage, she could even faintly hear the sound of children reading from above.
Chen Jing got out of the car and nodded to the soldiers on duty next to the orphanage. She went straight up the narrow stairs.
It had only been a few days, but there were already many children’s doodles on the walls.
However, the graffiti seemed to have been modified by someone else. It was originally crooked, but now it had become a lovely painting.
Chen Jing was also good at sketching, so she naturally had a certain eye.
It could be seen that this person who had changed the graffiti should be a very gentle person.
she was very curious about the Dean of the orphanage, who had a very important position in Shan Bing’s file.
At the same time, she was glad that she had ordered the orphanage to move here for protection.
at that time, she had only thought that Shan Bing would not have to worry about anything and could cooperate with satellite town’s investigation of hidden sources of pollution. However, after linking everything together, she realized that her decision had helped him a lot.
If they had not moved the orphanage over, there might have been an accident.
After all, professor Bails words proved that the Knights from outside the city knew about the existence of the orphanage.
When they came to the third floor, they saw an old man in a light blue security uniform sitting on a stool at the corner of the stairs. He was reading a newspaper in his hand. When he saw Chen Jing coming over, he looked at her through his presbyopic glasses.
Chen Jing was dressed in casual clothes, but she was tall and slender. Her casual suit was well-fitted, and she had short hair, with a sharp temperament.
It was obvious that she was not supposed to be here.
“I’m from the security Department, I’m here to see director Zeng.”
Chen Jing knew that this man was the security guard of the orphanage. When the orphanage moved here, he also followed. However, although this place was better than Red Moon primary school, he did not have a security booth. He could only watch from the corner of the stairs.
The old security guard only glanced at Chen Jing and said, “”The class hasn’t ended yet, wait a moment.”
Chen Jing also glanced at the old man and said, ‘”‘Alright,” he said.
After that, neither of them spoke. One of them continued to read the newspaper while the other waited quietly at the stairs.
After waiting for more than ten minutes, he heard the sound of children suddenly becoming playful.
Chen Jing ascended the stairs and arrived at the fourth floor. She saw a girl with a stack of textbooks on her knees. She was slowly sliding out of the wheelchair surrounded by children. She looked about the same age as Lu Xin. She had a ponytail and looked very pure. She was the kind of girl who made people think that she was very quiet and trustworthy. She was even cuter than in the photo.
With a smile on her face, Chen Jing gently greeted, “”Hello, I’m Chen Jing, Lu
Teacher Lu was a little surprised. She looked up at the woman who was about 1.75 meters tall and was wearing high heels. She was stunned for a moment before she blurted out, “You’re the one who gave him that much money?”
Chen Jing did not expect her focus to be here. She chuckled and said, ‘”‘The work he’s doing is worthy of this reward.”
Teacher Lu nodded her head and said nervously, “”Alright, what are you here to ask this time?”
“There are some things from the past that I would like to find you to understand,” Chen Jing said frankly.
Teacher Xiaolu was silent for a moment. She pointed to the office diagonally across and said, ‘”‘Then can you wait for me for a moment?”
“I have to put down my book.”
“It’s fine. I’m not in a hurry.”
Chen Jing agreed softly and went straight to the office diagonally opposite.
The room was about 20 square meters in size. Although it was called an office, there was only a desk and an office chair. In the corner, there were some toys, footballs, and the like. It was more like a lounge. She was not in a hurry. She sat down in the office and casually picked up a child’s homework to read. She saw that the writing was childish, but the writing was very serious.
when I grew up, I became a scientist. I invented a kind of chicken with ten legs and let people eat chicken legs every day …
I’m going to build a spaceship in the future, fly into the sky, and blow up the moon …
“I want to marry teacher Lu in the future …” (There was a comment at the end:
the teacher did not agree!)
After looking at it for a while, Chen Jing’s mouth could not help but curve into a smile, ‘
“Are the children here all so ambitious?”
“I’m sorry to have kept you waiting,”
Teacher Lu pushed the door open and the wheelchair came in slowly. She smiled apologetically at Chen Jing.”Do you want some tea?”
“There’s no need to trouble yourself,”
Chen Jing put down her homework and leaned against the desk. She smiled and said, “”l’m just here to have a casual chat with you.”
Teacher Xiaolu closed the door and nodded. Her face was solemn as she said, ‘”‘1 wonder what you want to ask?”
“It’s about Lu Xin.”
“You two must have grown up in the same orphanage, right?” Chen Jing said frankly.
Teacher Lu nodded. yes, he left when he was thirteen. But he often comes back to help me.
After thinking for. while, she smiled and said, ” this person is so silly. He always gives me his salary. Sometimes, I see that he can’t even bear to wear thick clothes in winter. Instead. he gives me his saved salary and asks me to buy clothes for the children and carbon … But to be honest, if it wasn’t for him, this orphanage might not have been able to continue running. We … Or perhaps he’s already starved to death .
“He is indeed a very good person.”
“But this time, I’m here to find out more about what happened in the orphanage,” Chen Jing said with a smile.
Teacher Xiaolu lowered her voice. After a while, she said, back in the orphanage, he was also a very good child …
After a slight pause, she raised her head slightly and looked at Chen Jing,
“”What’s there to ask?”
Chen Jing quietly looked at her and whispered, “”Something happened to the orphanage back then, right?”
Teacher Xiaolu fell silent.
After a long time, she suddenly said softly, “”What do you want to ask?”
“I just want to know what happened in the orphanage that year …” Chen Jing slowed down her speech and said.
“For example, what was Lu Xin like at the time.” also, at the time of the explosion, who were you and Lu Xin .
Suddenly, Chen Jing’s eyes narrowed and she did not continue.
Because she saw that teacher Lu had suddenly taken out a gun from the clothes that she had rolled up.
She pointed the gun at her chin and looked up at Chen Jing, tears slowly welling up in her eyes.
Chen Jing was shocked, but she did not rush to speak. She only showed a questioning look.
“I don’t know what you’re asking. I don’t know anything about what happened back then.”
Teacher Xiaolu’s voice trembled and tears welled up in her eyes. However, her attitude was surprisingly firm.
“But I know I can’t let you hurt Lu Xin!” our lives now are very good .
he’s such a good person. He deserves this peace …
so, don’t even think about cheating me of anything. I won’t allow you to hurt him!
Then, she gritted her teeth and held the gun tightly. I know you have a lot of strange ways to make me speak …
“But if you force me, I’d rather … Beat yourself to death!”
Chen Jing looked at teacher Lu quietly.
Her hands were trembling, but her slender fingers were firmly on the trigger.
Guns were banned in the entire satellite town. Where did this orphanage teacher in a wheelchair get a gun from?
Looking at the rust, it was already very old.
It turned out that when she said she was going to put down the book, she was actually going to get this gun.
After a long while, Chen Jing slowly shook her head and said, ‘”‘This gun has not been maintained, so it can’t be fired.’
Then, she slowly got up and wrote down a number on the exercise book beside her. I don’t know what’s making you so wary of everything, but I want to tell you that not everyone in this world is like that. You cherish this peaceful life and hope that he can continue to live this peaceful life. What I want to do is to protect this peaceful life.
“I’ve already achieved my goal today.”
She tore off the page and turned to look at teacher Lu, ” my main purpose was to ensure Lu Xin’s safety. Only then would I be able to trust him more. You, on the other hand, have at least used this method to tell me that he is a trustworthy person …
. At the very least, he’s someone you can trust with your life.”
As he spoke, he placed the number on the table, ‘”‘This is my number. You can call me directly if you need anything in the future.”
Teacher Lu listened to Chen Jing’s words and was a little stunned. She did not say anything for a while.
Chen Jing passed by her directly and walked to the door.
Just as she was about to leave, she suddenly turned around and smiled. also, I saw the bill posted downstairs. It’s time to pay for the water and electricity bill
for Lu Xin’s sake, I can help you cover up the fact that you’re hiding a gun. but you still have to pay for the water, electricity, and rent on your own ….
