TQBCS Chapter 87 – I

The Accounts Book was Lost!

“What? The criminal police are looking for me?”

Su Lin was stunned as he heard Lin Qinguxe’s words. Why would the criminal police be looking for him?

‘Could it be to investigate the day before yesterday’s matter? Don’t tell me they found out I stole the College Entrance Examination question papers, right?’

‘It must be about the day before yesterday’s matter! The matter of me stealing the College Entrance Examination only happened a while ago, and I am sure nobody noticed it when I replaced the question papers in Peng Shenda’s possession. Ah, right! Even if that matter’s been revealed, they should be looking for Peng Shenda and his cronies, not me!’

Calming down, Su Lin looked towards Lin Qingxue’s face and felt a rush of warmth in his heart as he saw her worried expression.

“Teacher Lin, relax! The criminal police must be looking for me to investigate some matter, in search of evidence. That 1 Million from me definitely doesn’t have any issue, so you don’t need to be worried about me. Where are they? I will go see them together with you.”

It was naturally impossible for Su Lin to confess the truth before Lin Qingxue, so this was the only way he could comfort Lin Qingxue and make her not worry.

“Oh! Su Lin, the two criminal policemen are waiting for you in the Student Council office. Moreover, the one in-charge is a vice squad leader. Ah, I also have a class to attend, so I won’t be able to accompany you there. You… You be careful!”

The way Lin Qingxue currently looked towards Su Lin didn’t resemble a teacher looking towards their student, at all. Instead, it seemed as if she were looking at her beloved.

“Teacher Lin, I will go ahead then…”

Su Lin brightly smiled and then turned towards the direction of the Student Council Office. But just after walking two steps, he turned his head and earnestly said to Lin Qingxue, “Teacher Lin, thank you! You look really beautiful today.”

Without waiting for Lin Qingxue’s reply, Su Lin hurriedly ran off, leaving behind Lin Qingxue whose face unknowingly bloomed with a happy and satisfied smile.

‘Hmm… the one in-charge of the criminal policemen is the vice squad leader? Wouldn’t that mean Yan Longyang himself came over to see me? I am pretty sure I haven’t violated any law or committed any crimes… Ah! I hope it’s about the day before yesterday’s matter!’

As he arrived before the Student Council Office, although Su Lin knew he hadn’t done anything wrong, he still felt a little worried in his heart.

……

At this time, the most satisfied person would have to be Li Jianhua who was inside the Student Council Office. He had long hated Su Lin, and even his plan of slapping Su Lin with three major offences to get him kicked out of the school had failed. What’s more, Su Lin even got to show off and gain clout by giving that speech a few days ago.

And when he realized that he won’t be able to get his revenge or make any trouble for Su Lin after tomorrow’s College Entrance Examinations, he felt even more unwilling and sour in his heart.

However, just when the day had crossed noon time today, a police car arrived at the school out of nowhere. The vice squad leader, officer Yan Longyong personally arrived at the Student Council Office and asked to see Su Lin by mentioning his name.

Since the criminal police had come knocking, there definitely couldn’t be any good news.

Li Jianhua heartily laughed in his heart thinking that the little bastard, Su Lin, must have violated some law outside, otherwise, why would the criminal police come looking for him.

In his 56 years of being in service, Li Jianhua had come across many instances of policemen coming over to the school for some student, or some student getting caught by the police in Internet Cafes and other entertainment establishments.

But this was the first time he had seen officers from the criminal police investigation unit looking for a student, moreover, the vice squad leader, Yan Longyong, had personally arrived. Only when wanted criminals were involved would the criminal police squad get involved in the matter.

‘Hehe, it seems the crime that little bastard, Su Lin, committed isn’t some small matter! Let alone anything else, just getting arrested and taken to the police station like this will be pretty bad. There’s no way he will be getting to sit in the College Entrance Examinations tomorrow!’

Li Jianhua thought as he politely made tea for the two officers in the Student Council Office. At the same time, he asked with a smiling face, “That… Chief Yan, may I take the liberty to ask what the matter is? Has our school’s student, Su Lin, violated some law?”

“Pardon me, Principal Li! This is our bureau’s internal secret, so I am unable to disclose anything to you. All you need to do is to coordinate with us and make student Su Lin get here as soon as possible.”

Yan Longyong serious and stoic expression of “Shut up and do what you are told!” immediately embarrassed Li Jianhua as he said, “Naturally, our school will fully cooperate with the police’s investigation. I have already telephoned Su Lin’s class in-charge, Teacher Lin Qingxue, and asked her to inform Su Lin. I believe Su Lin will arrive at the Student Council Office very soon.”

Just when Li Jianhua finished his words, Su Lin knocked on the door and made his presence known before entering the Student Council Office.

“Chief Yan? You… What might you be looking for me for?”

Entering the office, Su Lin completely disregarded Li Jianhua and directly asked his question to the criminal police’s vice squad leader.

“That’s right! Su Lin, there’s an important matter we need you to explain to us.”

Yan Longyong nodded and then turned towards Li Jianhua and said, “Pardon me, Principal Li, but we will need you to temporarily leave the office.”

“Want me to leave the office?”

Here was supposed to be Li Jianhua’s domain, yet he was now being asked to get out of his own office? But well, the matter seemed to involve secrets of the criminal police bureau, and their vice squad leader, Yan Longyong, had already said it clearly, so he could do nothing but leave the office even if unwilling.

“Little Zhang, you go and stand outside the door. Make sure nobody can enter the office without my permission!”

Yan Longyong seriously said to the policeman he had brought along with him. It was of utmost importance to make sure any outsider didn’t hear what the two of them (Yan Longyong and Su Lin) were going to talk about. After that, he said to Su Lin with a stern expression, “Student Su Lin, we are well aware that you will be sitting in the College Entrance Examination tomorrow, and hence, it’s not right for us to bother you at this time lest it affect your College Entrance Examination results, but the matter at hand is extremely urgent and we need your help to resolve it. Therefore, I will first apologize to you on behalf of my entire criminal police bureau!”
