Chapter 78: Investigation
“Where are you going now?”
Teach looked at Kraang, who was walking towards the dormitory building, and quickly followed him.
“I’ll go to the missing person’s dormitory first and ask her roommate about the situation.”
Kraang was not in the mood to hunt at this time. His expression was unusually serious.
“If it’s really as you said, two or even more strange creatures, then this matter is definitely beyond our abilities.”
A strange creature that was able to use Doman was not something that even c-rank mages like them could handle.
Not to mention, the number of strange creatures was still unknown. The potential danger was not small at all.
“I’m just guessing. After all, this place was just visited by the scarecrow.”
Teach was not so pessimistic.
She tried hard to recall the information she had gathered a while ago.
“You have to know that there’s a long-haired strange creature hidden here, and it seems to have been subdued by the scarecrow.”
As for the long-haired strange creature, Teach still received a hint from Flanders’s video.
From it, she could determine that the other strange creature culprit who had once caused trouble in this school should be the long-haired strange creature.
“A strange creature subduing another strange creature? With the power and wisdom that the scarecrow displayed, it does seem like it could have done something like that.”
Kraang recalled the great battle back then. Flanders, the scarecrow strange creature, had caused quite a psychological trauma in his heart.
From the beginning to the end, the other party showed no signs of panic at all. Everything was under the other party’s control.
And whether it was him or the Sword King, they were just toys in the other party’s hands.
Toys that were played with by the other party, to the other party’s pleasure.
“In other words, there were strange creatures here before. If that’s the case, then the possibility of a third and fourth strange creature here isn’t small either.”
However, Kraang did not understand Teach’s meaning, and his tone was a little doubtful.
“No, it’s the exact opposite. Before the scarecrow came, there should only be one strange creature with long hair.”
When Teach said this, his tone was very certain.
“When I was investigating this university, I specifically investigated all kinds of matters with strange creatures that happened in this university over the years.
Among them, the injuries and deaths caused by the strange creatures were all the same on the victims’ bodies.
Moreover, the students who went missing before were all found later. All of them died with the same injuries.”
Hearing Teach’s certainty, the enthusiasm that had been dampened by Kraang was once again ignited.
“In that case, the strange creature here is very likely to be a newborn or one that just arrived, like the scarecrow.”
“Yes, I’m more inclined towards the newborn.”
Teach agreed with Kraang’s point of view. Her eyes were also shining with the same light as Kraang’s.
It was very obvious that she and Kraang wanted to increase their own strength by subduing the strange creature.
However, one of them wanted to show this intention proudly on the surface, while the other was too weak to show it.
“The newborn can avoid detection from the detector, and the victims are all missing. The situation is not good either.”
As if he thought of something, Kraang restrained his excitement and analyzed it seriously.
Hearing Kraang’s words, Teach immediately understood what he meant.
“… it seems so. Do I need to ask for help from the higher-ups?”
Under normal circumstances, a newborn strange creature would not be able to control his power well.
Even if the other party had some hidden tricks up his sleeve, he would not be able to control it well since he was just born.
Although the other party had exposed him when he attacked, he didn’t leave any clues behind.
If it was really a newborn, then this strange creature was very likely to have its own Domain.
Every strange creature with a Domain, whether it was a newborn or not, was quite dangerous for a mage.
However, Kraang was willing to take a gamble.
“Not for the time being. If it’s really a newborn, we’ll try it out first. It’s not too late to inform if it really doesn’t work.”
Teach didn’t say anything. She followed behind Kraang, and the two of them soon arrived at the entrance of a dormitory.
The dormitory door was pushed open very quickly, and inside were the few other members who were packing their luggage.
Now that the entire dormitory building had been in continuous trouble, even if the higher-ups didn’t arrange it, the students who lived here weren’t willing to continue staying.
Seeing these two people, Becky, who opened the door, asked them first.
“Hello, we are the Special Task Force. We are here to investigate this missing case. The three of you are the roommates of the latest missing person, Vina, right?”
Teach looked around the entire dormitory and asked the three of them.
If it wasn’t necessary, Teach would not easily reveal her identity.
Anyway, in front of these ordinary people, the identity of a policeman was more useful than their real identity.
As for the documents, there was no need to worry. Every commissioner of the Mage Association had a complete set of procedures on hand.
Even if they really investigated, they would have a record in the police station’s system.
Kraang leaned against the wall, lit a cigarette, and muttered a weird sound.
However, because the sound was very weak, and everyone’s attention was attracted by Teach, so no one noticed him.
Kraang was smoking, and the room was filled with smoke.
The weird thing was that the smoke he spat out didn’t have any smell. It was almost the same as the air.
After touching it, there was a cold feeling, a bit cold.
“Yes, we are all Vina’s roommates. You can ask us anything you want to know. We will tell you everything we know,” Becky said calmly.
“Yes, yes, yes, we will tell you everything. Please, you must find Guoguo!”
At the side, Allen said with a sobbing tone.
It was naturally the best if those who knew the truth were willing to cooperate.
After confirming the identity, the interrogation officially began.
Teach asked, “Can you tell us what the missing person did before he went missing? Where exactly did she go missing? What was the time of her disappearance?”
These were very common questions. After the others heard it, they were all immersed in their memories.
The first person to answer was Allen.
“At that time, we were all sleeping. But when Vina got up and went out, I was woken up and looked at the time.
“At that time, the phone showed that it was 1:30.”
Teach nodded and continued to ask, “Does the missing person have the habit of waking up at night? And when did you discover that she was missing?”
Hearing this question, Becky raised her hand and said,
“Vina’s kidney is not good, so she would get up and go to the toilet every night. And when I woke up in the morning, I found that she was gone. At that time, I saw that there was no one in her bed, so I thought that she had gone to the toilet. But when everyone was ready for class, we still didn’t see Vina.”
“When she disappeared, did you hear any sounds or strange movements?”
Allen and Becky said, “no.”
