Chapter 95: Listen to me, hide!
There was a night wind outside the community, and it was very cool.
There were no people outside the apartment building.
Some buildings’ lights could be seen outside the community, but only the street lights were lit on the road.
Li Mei followed behind Chen Zhen, staring at his back.
When they got to where the car was parked, she couldn’t help but ask, “The doll you gave to Qiu Ling is so big.
It must have cost a lot of money.”
“…It was only a few thousand dollars.” Chen Zhen replied.
Li Mei felt bitterness in her mouth when he said it so lightly.
The two of them worked for the same company and were four-year college classmates.
Wouldn’t she know his family background and salary
Chen Zhen’s family background was average.
Except for the first few weeks of the first semester after entering university, his book fees and accommodation were all paid for by himself by working part-time.
She knew all of these things.

In college, Qiu Ling and the two of them were not in the same class, but they were in the same association.
They got to know each other because of the numerous activities, and they later became good friends.
Qiu Ling was beautiful and had a cheerful personality.
It was natural that Chen Zhen would be attracted to her.
But they didn’t know that Li Mei had fallen in love with him since the first year of being a freshman, but she had never confessed it.
Later, when Qiu Ling came along, it became even more difficult for her to say it.
Until now, it had already been seven or eight years.
Li Mei took the initiative to open up the topic and said casually, “I saw that the doll you just held was a little heavy.”
Chen Zhen paused.
He didn’t answer the question, and opened the car door, “Get in the car.
I don’t know when it will be when we get back.”
Li Mei entered the back seat.
She could still see Chen Zhen’s face in the rear-view mirror from behind.
It made her feel addicted as always, but when she thought of his feelings for Qiu Ling, her heart felt panicked.
He was rejected by Qiu Ling in college, but he still liked her so much.
The two of them didn’t speak on the way.
They didn’t look like college classmates at all.
It was more than half an hour later when Chen Zhen parked the car on the side of the road and said, “We’re here.”
Li Mei’s house was on the way.
She opened the car door.
When she was about to close the door, she suddenly remembered something: “By the way, Qiu Ling seems to be dating Lu Jian.”
Chen Zhen, who was in the driver’s seat, was startled.
“How did you know”
“Liu Huanxin told me just now that Qian Yun guessed it.” Li Mei glanced at his face, and found that there was no anger in it.
“Aren’t you sad”
Chen Zhen replied, “What am I sad about”
Li Mei said, “Qiu Ling has never liked you.
Why do you still like her so much”
“This is my own business.” Chen Zhen glanced at her, “Li Mei, you don’t need to worry about me and her.
It’s getting late.
When you go back, pay attention to safety.”
How could he not know that Li Mei likes him
Li Mei sadly responded, “I’m going home first; you pay attention to safety too.”
She turned away.
Chen Zhen pressed down the car window button and watched the person disappear at the end of the road.
He then snorted coldly, turned the steering wheel, and quickly drove away.
After he left, Li Mei appeared at the intersection again.
Shen Yuanye looked around downstairs in the apartment and found the car.
Lu Yue had already arrived, and the parking position was similar to what she had said before.
Shen Yuanye got into the car and said, “Wait a while before leaving.”
The murderer definitely wouldn’t recognize her car, and it was at night.
In the dark night, only the street lights were still on.
It was covered by the leaves, and the shadows fell on the ground, which made it look a little blurry.
Ten minutes later, Lu Yue suddenly asked, “Miss Shen, what are you waiting for”
Shen Yuanye said, “I’m seeing if anyone shows up.”
In fact, the person may not necessarily appear here because there was surveillance here.
Although there were dead ends, they should still be able to be photographed.
Unless something went wrong with the monitoring.
After thinking about it, Shen Yuanye looked between the trees, but she couldn’t see much.She simply asked Lu Yue, “Can you see if that surveillance camera is running”
Lu Yue pressed down on the car window, staring, and after a while, she answered, “No, it’s not running.”
Shen Yuanye froze.
How could the surveillance of an apartment complex so easily stop running Usually, it was man-made, and she had encountered it many times before.
The murderer was ready.
More than half an hour had passed, but there wasn’t even a ghost.
Shen Yuanye’s eyes were tired.
She rubbed the corners of her eyes and whispered: “Lu Yue, if there is anyone, call me.”
Two people were better than one.
“Miss Shen, is that the person you’re waiting for”
Lu Yue’s voice woke up the sleepy Shen Yuanye.
She hurriedly looked out the window, but because she didn’t roll down the window, it wasn’t very clear.
A man walked towards the apartment building.
Shen Yuanye assumed that he might be a resident of the apartment building.
However, this idea was shattered the next second because the man paused by the flower bed and squatted for a minute.
Soon, the man got up, opened the door, and entered the apartment building.
The action of squatting and looking for something was so redundant that Shen Yuanye had to wonder whether this person was a resident or a murderer.
She turned her head and asked, “Lu Yue, do you think you can bring that person down”
Lu Yue answered, “Yes.”
Shen Yuanye still felt that she couldn’t take the risk.
She took out her phone and called Qiu Ling.
It took half a minute to connect.
“What’s the matter” The voice sounded vague.
“Qiu Ling, are you sleeping” Shen Yuanye asked.
Qiu Ling responded, “Well… I just fell asleep not long ago.
I was woken up by the ringing of my phone.
What’s the matter Did you forget to get something I’ll bring it to you.”
Shen Yuanye knew what this meant.
She subconsciously looked at the time on her phone, and it was already 11:40.
Today was the date of Qiu Ling’s death.
That is, in the next twenty minutes, she would be killed by the murderer.
There was an 80% probability that Shen Yuanye could be sure that the person who had just picked up something by the flower bed was the murderer!
She couldn’t care about anything and said directly: “Get up now.
Go to the kitchen and get a kitchen knife! Then hide inside and don’t come out!”
Qiu Ling was confused by her words, “Ah, what”
She had just woken up, and she was still disoriented.
What did this sudden action mean She couldn’t react at all.
Shen Yuanye was starting to get anxious.
That person might have gotten up from the elevator by now.
“Listen to me.
Go to the kitchen now, get a knife!”
Qiu Ling subconsciously listened to her words and got up from the bed stubbornly.
She hadn’t cleaned up her living room yet, so she ran over the mess and got a kitchen knife.
Then she replied, “I got one…”
She was standing in the kitchen with a kitchen knife and wearing pajamas.
If she was seen by others, they would have thought that she was sleepwalking.
Qiu Ling looked at herself, not knowing whether to laugh or cry.
She felt bewildered by Shen Yuanye’s words and faintly felt that something was wrong.
Shen Yuanye asked, “Can you trust me”
Qiu Ling nodded, “Of course.”
Having experienced that incident before, she knew that Shen Yuanye didn’t have bad intentions.
Shen Yuanye had a brighter future than her, and she helped her.
Although the request was rather strange now, it was not something that was hurting the world.
Shen Yuanye glanced at Luyue in the driver’s seat and lowered her voice: “Close the kitchen door.
Don’t go out when you hear any noise, and pretend that there is no one at home.
Hearing this, Qiu Ling seemed to realize something, and her face quickly turned pale,”… I didn’t turn off the light…”
The lights in the bedroom, the lights in the living room, they were all on…
But she still quickly turned off the light in the kitchen while holding a kitchen knife.
Her heart was pounding, and she pricked her ears to listen to the movement outside.
Don’t make a sound.” Shen Yuanye comforted.
Qiu Ling was about to answer when a small creak suddenly came from outside.
This apartment was not very high-end, and it was not big.
So no matter how carefully someone opened the door, she would still hear a little sound while it was being opened.
Qiu Ling’s heart was raised on tenterhooks and she couldn’t help but whisper, “…Someone, someone opened the door!”
Only she had the key to her apartment, and no outsiders had it.
It was self-evident who would open the door.
Soon, the door was opened and closed again.
Because it was so quiet, Qiu Ling could hear it clearly.
In the whole space, only her heartbeat was like a drum.
Then there were the footsteps outside the living room, to the bedroom… coming out of the bedroom… It was clearly audible.
Of course, there would be no one in the bedroom.
Shen Yuanye’s voice came from the phone: “If the other party is near the kitchen, don’t move.”
Qiu Ling didn’t dare answer at all.
There was no sound on the opposite end, but there was the sound of heavy breathing.
Shen Yuanye also realized that someone had already entered.
Shen Yuanye was below, watching someone go up.
She thought about Lu Yue’s skills again and took out the pepper spray she prepared earlier from her bag, “Let’s go up and have a look.”
She also asked Lu Yue to put an iron rod in the car before, just for this matter.
When the elevator went up, she was still quietly comforting Qiu Ling.
Qiu Ling, who was hiding in the kitchen, watched the shadow cast by the lamp fall on the kitchen door without blinking.
Half of the kitchen door was made of glass, so when she squatted on the ground and huddled to the side, she couldn’t see the person above her when she looked up.
The footsteps went next door.
Next door was the bathroom.
She didn’t lock the door.
As soon as the murderer opened it, they would see if there was anyone inside.
Qiu Ling had already guessed the following scene.
The other party saw that there was no one in the bedroom and bathroom, and the kitchen door was closed.
He must’ve figured out that she was in the kitchen, and he would inevitably find her.
Then suddenly, Shen Yuanye’s voice came from the phone: “I’m here.”
