At this time, Chen Zhao Zhong came up with two plates of dishes, one was the signature Cantonese style roast goose, and the other was also his specialty, the marinated platter.
He placed the dishes in front of Ye Chen and Gu Qiuyi and said in a low voice to them, “Young Master Ye and Miss Gu, there is a regular customer in the shop, that Chinese sleuth Li Yalin is also here, you two should not go down for the time being.”
Ye Chen was busy asking, “Uncle Zhong, Li Yalin didn’t recognise you, did he?”
“No.” Chen Zhao Zhong said, “My look that day was too different from my usual look, besides, I only met him once that day, so it might be hard for him to remember me, and I deliberately tested him just now, and he really didn’t recognise me, so it should be fine.”
“That’s good.” Ye Chen was slightly relieved, and then asked curiously, “Uncle Zhong, do you know the middle-aged man who came with Li Yalin?”
Chen Zhao Zhong said, “I’ve known him for a long time, he’s always been a regular customer of the shop, but I really don’t know his identity too well, he never talks about it, and I never ask too much.”
Saying that, he added, “But I guess his identity must be very distinguished, he should be a man of great background.”
Immediately afterwards, Chen Zhao Zhong asked Ye Chen, “Young Master Ye, do you know that man?”
Ye Chen hesitated a little in his heart, but decided not to tell Chen Zhao Zhong for the time being, after all, his elder uncle was downstairs, in case Chen Zhao Zhong was too shocked after hearing about it, he might reveal something.
So, he smiled and said to Chen Zhaozhong, “I don’t know him either, I just asked him casually.
Chen Zhaozhao Zhong waved his hand, “No way, I will bring you the other dishes when they are ready, you can eat first.”
By now, An Chongqiu and Li Yalin had already had their drinks.
Chen Zhaozhong had asked the man to serve them a few dishes in order to keep Li Yalin from remembering himself.
After the two of them exchanged gla*ses, An Chongqiu put down his chopsticks and asked Li Yalin, “How is your case going? Is there any progress?”
Li Yalin shook his head, then looked at his surroundings, and then at Chen Zhao Zhong and the restaurant staff who were busy inside, to make sure that they could not hear him, before he said in an annoyed voice: “I am not going to lie, the Fei family is really inferior to the next generation, when I went to the Fei family, I had already made it so clear, but they still kicked me out, I really have nothing to say. ”
An Chongqiu sighed: “This is probably what people often say about the authorities being confused.”
Li Yalin sighed, “Ai! I was hoping that the Fei family would cooperate with us after they noticed the crisis, but it turns out that I’ve made a fool of myself.
An Chongqiu then said, “It is true that people may not come back, but I think the case can still be solved, although it can’t be solved in three days or five days, playing three to five months, three to five years, there will always be a time to uncover the truth.”
Li Yalin said with a bitter smile, “I will retire soon, if this case really takes three to five years to be solved, then the person who solved this case is not me, by the time I retire with such an unresolved case, the little reputation I have built up in half of my life will be gone.”
An Chongqiu laughed, “I thought you, Li Yalin, were open-minded by nature and didn’t care about this so-called false reputation.”
