Miss Forensics – Chapter 84.2

An incident occured

During lunchtime, Lin Yan didn’t go to the cafeteria. Song Yuhang was afraid that she would be hungry, so she packed a meal for her to take over. Little did she know, Lin Yan had already started eating.

As usual, it was an exquisite dish made by a gourmet chef, and even the utensils sent over were ceramic.

Song Yuhang looked at her own plastic lunch box and felt a bit embarrassed, hesitating to step back.

Lin Yan sat in the chair and didn’t eat much before she put down her chopsticks and said, “I’m not eating anymore, just pour it out.”

Song Yuhang quickly ran over and said, “Don’t, what a waste.”

Lin Yan turned her face away and said, “I’m already full. If you haven’t eaten, you can have it.”

Still showing some awkward concern.

Song Yuhang smiled, dragged a chair over from the side, sat down, and without any hesitation, picked up Lin Yan’s chopsticks, “How do you know I haven’t eaten?”

Lin Yan sneered, “The cafeteria opens at 12 o’clock. It’s unlikely that you could finish eating and run over here within five minutes, unless you’re a deity.”

Most likely, she went to line up early, got her meal, and came straight over.

Looking at the dishes on the table, all of which were her favorite, Song Yuhang squinted and smiled, knowing that she specifically ordered them for her. She picked up a piece of braised pork and put it in her bowl.

“Try it, the dish today is really good.”

“Oh, I don’t want to eat.” Lin Yan continued to show her disdain, but she was still fed a few more bites.

Seeing her eat a little more, Song Yuhang became happier.

The technical detectives had gone to have their lunch, and there weren’t many people around. Song Yuhang became a little bolder and moved closer to her.

“When are you going to Lin family’s home tonight? Have you bought the birthday gift?”

Lin Yan peeled the steamed purple sweet potato skin that she brought with her, “I’ll go right after work. You don’t need to tell me. Mind your own business.”

“Look, we’re leaving for the provincial capital tomorrow. Can I stay at your place tonight so that we don’t have to rush in the morning?” Song Yuhang cautiously bit her chopsticks and looked at her.

Lin Yan smirked, “Sure, but you’ll sleep on the couch.”

“Lin Yan.” Song Yuhang emphasized her name, “You know what I’m talking about.”

The corners of the fox spirit’s lips curled up with a playful smile, the familiar expression of coquettishness, knowingly asking a question.

“What are you talking about? I don’t understand.”

Song Yuhang took a deep breath, held her shoulder, and looked into her eyes, getting closer to her lips.

Their eyes met, staring at each other for three seconds. Thinking about the intimate moments they had shared, Lin Yan’s face became flushed, and she quickly averted her gaze.

Song Yuhang chuckled, swallowed, looked around to see no one was around, and gently lifted her chin. “Your words don’t match your heart. You’re thinking about it too.”

“I…”

Before she could retort, Song Yuhang slightly closed her eyes and leaned in.

“Ai ma! I walked into the wrong set!” Duan Cheng, holding a lunch box, just stepped inside the door but quickly retracted, covering his eyes and stepping back, accidentally stepping on several technicians.

All eyes turned towards them.

Lin Yan blushed and pushed away from Song Yuhang, leaving behind the words “I’m full!” and rushed into the laboratory.

Song Yuhang felt like crying without tears. It was so close, ah!

Her inner turmoil was roaring, but her face remained calm.

“What did you see?”

Several people shook their heads together. “We didn’t see anything.”

Song Yuhang smiled, got up, and said, “There’s still Dongpo pork, braised pork, grilled wings. Lin Yan hasn’t touched them. You guys have them. I’ll go back to the forensic department.”

Finally, she added, “Remember to knock when you come in next time!”

Duan Cheng, with a mouthful of braised pork, felt like crying without tears. He had never heard someone knock on his own office door

But there was nothing he could do. It was all for the sake of the boss’s happiness.


In the afternoon, she temporarily attended a guidance meeting at a local police station.

When she came out of the police station, the sun was already setting. Song Yuhang said to the accompanying people, “You all can go back. I’ll wander around by myself.”

As it was already the usual time to leave work, several colleagues dispersed. Song Yuhang arrived at the bank entrance, withdrew some money, and took a taxi to the largest shopping mall in the city.

The last time she and Lin Yan came here to buy clothes, Lin Yan’s eyes briefly lingered on the diamond rings in the shop window, but then she quickly pulled Song Yuhang away.

Song Yuhang arrived at the familiar counter.

“Hello, I’d like to see this model.”

The saleswoman brought it out for her and sweetly said, “Miss, you have great taste. This model is the latest this year, made of white 18K gold, with a marquise-shaped cut diamond weighing a total of 4.59 carats. Do you see how the edges and corners resemble a butterfly spreading its wings? It has a beautiful meaning! Many couples buy this pair for engagement! And recently, there’s been a significant discount for the autumn-winter season. The original price was 450,000 yuan per pair, but now you can have it for only 390,000 yuan!”

The saleswoman continued to talk nonstop, “Miss, you came with your boyfriend, right? I wish you a happy and fulfilling marriage in advance…”

Song Yuhang slipped the ring onto her finger and hooked it slightly, a hint of pleasure in her smile. “No, I’m buying it to give to my girlfriend.”

That way, Lin Yan wouldn’t always complain that she only knew how to say cheesy romantic words without any sense of ceremony.

The saleswoman’s smile froze on her face, like a frozen TV screen. “Hehehe, you have a great sense of humor.”

Song Yuhang took out her wallet from the jacket pocket and handed over her bank card. “The size doesn’t quite fit. Can it be customized?”

The saleswoman widened her eyes in surprise and took a moment to regain her composure. Her smile became more sincere and professional. “Of course, of course. Please leave your name and phone number, fill out this form, and pay a 50% deposit. The remaining balance can be paid when you come to collect the ring and try it on after two weeks.”

Song Yuhang nodded eagerly and wrote detailed size information on the paper that was handed to her. Lin Yan’s size was something she had already measured while Lin Yan was asleep.

The thought of being able to wear the ring on her finger soon, officially declaring Lin Yan as her fiancée, made Song Yuhang’s face overflow with uncontrollable excitement. However, when she looked at the receipt handed to her by the saleswoman, a faint sense of helplessness emerged.

The nearly 400,000 yuan ring had almost emptied more than half of her savings, including the inheritance and pension left by her father.

If only she had worked harder and climbed up the ranks in the past two years, she wouldn’t be so financially strained when trying to get married.

Song Yuhang tightly held the receipt handed to her by the saleswoman and carefully put it into her wallet, which she then placed in her jacket pocket. She then pushed open the doors of the store.


After finishing work, Lin Yan looked back as usual, but no one followed her.

The driver urged, “Miss, we can’t park here. We should leave.”

Lin Yan snapped out of her daze and got into the car. The driver closed the door for her.

“Do we have all the gifts I prepared?”

The driver turned around respectfully and said, “They are all in the trunk, Miss.”

Lin Yan nodded, and the journey was silent. Soon, they arrived at the Lin family estate.

Lin Ge stood at the entrance of the estate, welcoming today’s guests. When he saw her car, his eyes lit up. He handed the wine he was holding to a servant and went forward to greet her.

“You’re here.”

Lin Yan nodded and took off her sunglasses, revealing her beautiful face. A faint smile appeared at the corner of her lips as she watched the driver hand the gifts to the butler standing nearby to take inside.

“Where’s auntie? I’ll go see her.”

The Lin family estate was much larger than her own villa, consisting of several buildings. It had amenities such as a golf course, a bowling alley, an outdoor swimming pool, and more. There was also a fruit orchard behind the estate, where she used to get lost often in her youth.

To the east was Lin Youyuan’s residence, an independent villa with carved fences surrounding it. The lights were off, and it was quiet.

To the west was Lin Ge’s family residence. At this moment, it was brightly lit, with a red carpet laid out at the entrance, adorned with balloons, ribbons, and congratulatory flower baskets sent by business partners.

“She’s inside. Let me take you in,” Lin Ge said as he led her towards the house. He chuckled when he noticed her continuously glancing towards the east.

“Don’t look there. Uncle Lin is not here today. Jingtai had an accident and hasn’t come back recently.”

Lin Yan subtly breathed a sigh of relief, but she couldn’t understand why she felt a slight twinge of concern.

Jingtai collapsed. Shouldn’t she be happy about it?

With these conflicting thoughts, she finally saw her aunt whom she hadn’t seen for many days.

Mother Lin was sitting on the sofa, chatting and laughing with a few older sisters. She wore a warm woolen hat on her head, and the room was heated, making it quite hot. Lin Yan took off her coat as soon as she entered, but her mother still wore thick clothes, probably because of her delicate health.

Lin Yan looked at her from a distance, feeling a pang of heartache. She walked over quickly and called out, “Auntie.”

Mother Lin snapped out of her thoughts upon hearing her voice among the older sisters. When she saw it was Lin Yan, her eyes instantly welled up, and tears streamed down her face.

“Yanyan, Yanyan, you’re back… Please sit, please sit.”

She greeted her with the same warmth as when she was a child.

However, when she stood up, her body swayed slightly. Lin Ge quickly rushed over and supported her, saying, “Mom, don’t get too excited. Sit down and talk.”

(If you're not reading on littlepandatranslations.com, it means this has been stolen)

Mother Lin glanced at her son and then at Lin Yan. She immediately calmed down, wiped away her tears, and sat down with his assistance. She held Lin Yan’s hand and engaged in the usual small talk.

“How is your health? You were seriously injured last time, and I wanted to visit you. But Lin Ge stopped me, saying that I’m not in good health either and shouldn’t go.”

Lin Ge chuckled from the side. “Mom, have some tea.”

“I should be the one asking you that. I never came to visit you…” Lin Yan’s heart was filled with mixed emotions as she held her aunt’s hand, which was rough and covered in age spots.

“It was my negligence.”

She didn’t want to make Mother Lin too sad, after all, the patient’s mood was the most important. So, she forced a smile and deliberately spoke in a cheerful and lively tone.

“You see, this time I brought you so many good things. Ginseng, lingzhi, donkey-hide gelatin—excellent for nourishing and beautifying.”

“And here’s a scarf, made of pure cashmere, the latest design. I bought it but couldn’t bear to wear it, so I brought it for you.”

“This jade bracelet has exceptionally good quality. When I saw it, I immediately thought it would suit you perfectly.”

Lin Yan’s kindness towards someone depended on whether she was willing or not. If she was willing, she would give her heart and soul, even exerting ten times the effort to repay those who had shown her kindness.

Mother Lin shook her head, holding her hand while tears welled up in her eyes. “Auntie is so happy that you came to see me. You’re alone out there, so don’t spend too much money. After all, you’re a young girl, and having some money on hand will prevent others from taking advantage of you.”

Lin Yan nodded. “Yes, you don’t know yet, but I really don’t lack money—”

Her own businesses were enough to support herself and then some.

Mother Lin tried to say something, but Lin Ge gently took the teacup from her hand and helped her up.

“Mom, it’s time for you to go back to your room, take your medicine, and rest for a while. Your personal doctor is already waiting for you.”

Mother Lin turned to look at Lin Yan, a hint of reluctance in her eyes. “Yanyan…”

Lin Yan stood up and watched her aunt leave with the support of Lin Ge and the personal doctor. “It’s alright, Auntie, go ahead. Take your medicine, and I’ll come up to see you later.”

Tears welled up in Mother Lin’s eyes, accompanied by a fleeting sorrow.

Lin Yan was momentarily taken aback, but by the time she tried to get a clear view, Lin Ge had already helped her leave.

She took a sip of red wine, suppressing the faint uneasiness in her heart.

At that moment, she thought Mother Lin’s gaze meant she couldn’t bear to part with her. But later, she came to understand that the meaning behind that gaze was simply a plea for help.


LP: Oh no! F***! So Lin Ge is really…. ahhhhhhhh!!!
