Afternoon .   In a Hong Kong style tea restaurant .

Hong Kong is known for being crowded .   So little space, so many people .   The tiny restaurant is packed with diners .   It took a while before Ouyang Lin finds an empty table .   He can’t be bothered waiting for the waiters to come to get their orders .   He and Anam walk up to the counter .


Jian Yao is sitting next to Bo Jinyan .   She asks him quietly: “What have you discovered?”

Bo Jinyan smiles: “I still need to verify a few things . ” 


Jian Yao nods .


After a while, the two men return .   Ouyang Lin puts 2 plates of rice in front of them: “There’s no grilled eel today .   I ordered a barbecue roast pork and roast goose with rice for you .   It’s their most popular dish here . ”


Jian Yao looks down .   Everyone is having the same food - roast pork and roast goose with rice .


Anam takes a pair of chopsticks and starts to eat .   Ouyang Lin is hungry too .   He starts before Jian Yao and Bo Jinyan .  


Bo Jinyan frowns .   Then he starts eating, but obviously, pushing the pork to one side .   He is only eating the goose .    


“Wait . ” said Jian Yao .   She transfers the roast pork from his plate to hers, and gives him all her roast goose .  


Bo Jinyan smiles at her: “Thanks . ”

During the whole exchange process, they never talked, as if they instinctively knew what’s on each other’s mind .   Both Anam and Ouyang Lin are amazed .  


Jian Yao explains to them: “Oh, he doesn’t take roast pork . ”  But of course, she didn’t elaborate on the reason .  


Ouyang Lin smiles .   Anam continues with his meal .  


Jian Yao’s phone rings .   It’s her mother .   She walks outside to take the call .


The three men are left at the table . Ouyang Lin thought he should start a topic of conversation since he is the host . He smiles to Bo Jinyan: “Professor, you areso lucky to have such a gentle and considerate girlfriend . ”


This is a new experience for Bo Jinyan .   People usually speak to him out of respect .   Even if it’s out of envy, it’s because of his high IQ .   It’s the first time it’s on his success on finding the right woman .


Ha ha… . that’s inevitable that other men are jealous of him .  


He smiles, and then he looks at Ouyang Lin and says: “Thank you . ”


Ouyang Lin smiles back .   Bo Jinyan looks at Anam, who kept quiet all these time .   Anam doesn't think that it concerns him at all .   But since, Bo Jinyan is looking at him, he pauses, then replies: “Top 15% - 30% .   Not bad indeed . ”


They have been working together for some time now .   They are getting more familiar with each other .   Bo Jinyan just smiles: “Ah, a rookie that has never been in love . ”

Anam is puzzled: “What do you mean?”


Bo Jinyan has no patience to teach juniors .   He just laughs in his heart .


What a stupid kid .   He fails to understand one simple truth .


There’s no ranking when it comes to love .   She is his one and only -  No . 1 .




The third person they are visiting is the male victim Yang Yu Zhe's apartment .


This young architect lived alone in a well-designed and classy apartment .   His brother is there to meet them .  


“Why did the pervert choose Yu Zhe?” The brother speaks with reddened eyes . He is aggrieved: “He gets on with everyone .   He has a bright future in front of him…”

Jian Yao takes a look at the apartment .   Like his brother said, he is an outstanding person .   He’s an award winning architect, working in a one of the best firms in town .   The novel he wrote in his spare time has won many awards and is a best seller .   Like Zhou Lin Po, his house is full of trophies and awards .  


Bo Jinyan picks up his latest trophy .   It has the words ‘Winner of 2013 Hong KongGalaxy Writing Competition engraved on it .   His brother explains: “This is the highest achievement he has obtained so far .   He was one of two people who got this award .   It is very special .   He was planning to give up his architectural career to become a full-time writer . ”


Bo Jinyan picks up a pile of letters .   These are fan mails .   Looks like his novel is very popular .   His audience covers a large age group .   Bo Jinyan looks at Ouyang Lim .   Ouyang Lim nods and says: “We’ve checked out his fans .   There’s no one that is suspicious . ”

Jian Yao asks the brother: “Does he has a girlfriend?”

The brother shakes his head: “My brother spent all his time on work and his writing .   Now that he’s giving up his day job, he would have had more time to find a girl, and settle down .   He was looking at buying his own apartment .   But now…”


Everyone is silent .  


The overall impression they got from Yang Yu Zhe’s family and friends is that he is a high achiever with pleasant personality .   He is not from a wealthy family .   His parents died a few years ago from illness .   But he and his brother have had a comfortable and good life… . until a few days ago .  



The last place to visit is their youngest victim - Li Kaixuan’s house .  


Well, to be correct, his uncle and auntie’s house .     His parents died in a car accident last year .


The child’s death brought pain and grief to the family, but in a different way to the previous families . When Jian Yao and the others arrive, his uncle (father’s elder brother) is manning his grocery shop .   He looks tired .   His aunt is looking after their two children .  


“We feel sorry for Kaixuan . ” The auntie cries as she speaks: “But our work is busy and the shop opens for long hours .   We are always exhausted .   We know that he missed his parents, but he never said anything to us .   He usually hid in the room when he came back from school .   He was an obedient boy, and he did well at school .   If his parents were still around, perhaps he wouldn’t have met the killer, and he’ll be alright…”


She is so overcome with emotions she can’t continue .   Jian Yao consoles her for a while, then she asks: “Can we have a look at his room please?”


“Yes, I’ll show you where it is . ”


The Lee family house is not big .   There is no extra room for Kaixuan, and the cousins didn’t want to live in the same room with him .   so Kaixuan stays in the small loft .  


Li Kaixuan is a mature boy for his age .   The loft is neat and tidy .   All the books are classified into genres and stacked neatly .   He has lots of superhero comics like Superman & Spiderman .   There are a lot of awards displayed on the wall:  2nd place in class, winner of writing competition, history knowledge contest winner etc etc 


To everyone’s surprise, Bo Jinyan only took one look at the room .   Then he walks to the entrance: “We can go now . ”


The other three people are a little shocked .   Jian Yao rushes up to him: “Why?”


Bo Jinyan looks at her: “I’ve seen what I needed to see .   I have all the clues now . ”


Jian Yao asks unbelievably: “You have worked out what his fantasy is?”


Bo Jinyan gives a confident smile .   The others wait for him for an answer .


“Oh, I know everything . ” He says: “His fantasy, his desires, and his next target…”



The others are amazed .   He continues: “…and how we can find out his name, identity and what he looks like . ”
