"… The contract has been set. We’ll achieve what customer asks for in the future and collect the transaction fee at the end of your life. Is that OK?"

"Yeah… That will be OK. I can accept it… I can make it up…"

Finally, the big fire in the banquet hall had been put out with the firemen’s effort.

"Sir! You cannot enter!"

Outside the fire, a man was kept at bay by the fireman. However, the man pushed them away forcefully, "My sister is inside the hall, you guys… get lost!"

He burst through the fireman, rus.h.i.+ng into the scene with haste.

There was a pungent smell of burning plastic, with substances mixed with ash and water stains. However, the man didn’t take notice of those, taking the route based on his memory.

There was no time for the firemen putting out the fire to stop him now. However, not long after, the man das.h.i.+ng into the hall halted his footsteps.

He saw Guo Yushuo and his sister as well.

He witnessed him hugging his sister, sitting down on the ground quietly. He looked down as if peering at something. The surroundings were clean… and tranquil.

The fire just now did not seem to have the heart to spread out, giving s.p.a.ce for the embrace of the bitter pair. The man was lost in thought for a second, walking ahead to get close.

One step followed another pace, he went to them, looking down at his sister held in Guo Yushuo’s arms.

What was incredible was, he had seen a … decayed dead body a while back. A body which would have also scared her relatives. Yet, at present, she looked so beautiful.

Like she was still alive, just falling into deep sleep.

Her hands were placed on her chest in a cross. Eyes closed but with a faint smile.

"You…" A hoa.r.s.e voice from his throat was released.

Guo Yushuo’s shoulder flickered slightly, raising his head slowly, "Can I wait for one more second? I know the policeman is outside now… I’ll turn myself in. But, can I wait for another minute, please? I just, want to have another look at her."

"You… Your eyes." The man took two steps back unconsciously.

He had lost his eyes. A pitch-black empty cavity occupied the s.p.a.ce of Guo Yushuo’s eyes, looking like he had lost them since he was born.

"I can see, I could always see everything…" Guo Yushuo laughed followed by gently saying, "I’m afraid I may forget, so I turned it into the last thing I will ever see and imprint it in my mind forever."

The man… Wenwen’s brother watched his sister with that peaceful smile. He wasn’t aware of the meaning behind the smile.

Her brother would rather think it was because his sister lying in Guo Yushuo’s arms felt relieved of this man’s guilt and shame.

Wenwen’s brother took a deep breath, watching them quietly.

Soon, the police came in. Guo Yushuo brought up directly the matter, saying that he murdered his girlfriend because he couldn’t sustain the pressure and escaped from reality, without resistance.

But he never breathed a word about why the dead body was so well kept, nor the judgment about the time of death and so forth.

Wenwen’s brother took two days to deal with the aftermath and deal with the dead body. After working until he felt exhausted, he suddenly received a call from some stranger.

"Hi, is that Mr. w.a.n.g Guoliang?"

"Yeah… Who’s calling?"

"Yeah. Hi, Mr. w.a.n.g. I just want to confirm, are you w.a.n.g Jingwen’s biological elder brother, her direct relative, right?"

"Who are you?"

"Well, I’m with the Comfort Insurance Company. Ms. w.a.n.g Jingwen has covered accident insurances for her mother, father and you… They are large quant.i.ty insurances, so we have to ask for the doc.u.ments such as ident.i.ty cards of you and your parents…"

w.a.n.g Guoliang was shocked by the phone call and the amount of the so-called insurance proceeds.

That might be a wealth that he will never be able to earn even if he had an
