Chapter 79: Unexpected Discovery
After a round of questioning, Teach and Kraang basically got the information they wanted.
“Alright. I have more or less understood what I want to know. Thank you for your cooperation.”
As she said this, Teach gave Kraang a look.
Next, the two of them planned to go to the public restroom on the third floor to take a look.
That was most likely the place where Vina went missing.
“There’s nothing wrong with these people. They probably didn’t lie.”
“Yeah, there’s nothing unusual in the dormitory either.”
After leaving Room 306, Teach and Kraang discussed the questions they had just asked.
As they spoke, they quickly walked to the public restroom on the third floor.
“What did you find?”
Teach took out a device and carefully scanned every corner of the public restroom.
“What are you referring to?”
“You’ve already lit a cigarette, do you need me to tell you?”
Teach also had some understanding of Kraang’s magic.
Kraang had a certain reputation in the mage association, not because of his strength, but because of his methods.
The other party had a lot of strange magic, which covered a lot of areas.
This was also the reason why Kraang was able to survive that battle.
Although he had many tricks up his sleeves, none of his abilities could be considered outstanding.
He really only knew a little about every field.
However, one had to admit that the other party could sometimes bring a little surprise to others.
“I didn’t discover anything special. However, did you feel anything? You’re the expert in this aspect, aren’t you?”
Teach fiddled with the instrument and said, “Like you, I didn’t feel anything. That dormitory didn’t come into contact with anything strange.”
Teach frowned as she looked at the instrument in her hand. Then, she chanted a few incantations, and a faint red light spread out from her body.
“What did you find?”
“This shouldn’t be! Could it be that the missing person didn’t go missing here?”
Teach, who was unwilling to give up, took the instrument and scanned the entire public toilet again. She also changed to a detection spell, but she still did not find anything.
“Forget it. Let’s investigate the situation of the other missing person again.”
Kraang suggested from the side.
The lead they had was broken, but fortunately, there was not only one victim.
Before that, there was another missing person.
“Alright, that’s all we can do.”
Teach nodded in agreement to Kraang’s suggestion and helplessly put away the detection device.
However, she did not have much hope for the next investigation.
Because the last missing person had been gone for too long.
So long that even if it was an ordinary person who committed the crime, it was enough to destroy all the clues.
Not to mention that the other party was a strange creature.
Arriving at the first missing person’s dormitory, teach knocked on the door as usual.
The sound of the door opening rang out, but the door that was opened was not in front of Teach, but behind her.
Emil held a paintbrush in her hand and looked at the two people who disturbed her peace with some displeasure.
“Why are you looking for the people in this dormitory?”
“Hello, we are the police. We are here to investigate a missing person case.”
“Missing? is someone missing?”
“Don’t you know? Not long ago, a girl in this dormitory went missing. And just yesterday, another girl went missing in this dormitory building.”
“I really don’t know. I’ve been too busy recently.”
Emil’s attitude softened a lot. She looked at the two of them and kindly reminded them.
“There’s no one in that dormitory anymore. They all moved away some time ago. I was wondering why they all suddenly left. So it’s because someone went missing.”
“Aren’t you afraid?”
Emil seemed to have heard something funny and could not help but laugh out loud.
This reaction made Teach and Kraang somewhat puzzled. What was going on?
Did she say something wrong?
“I’m afraid. It’s just that someone went missing. It’s not worth being afraid of.”
As someone who had experienced the baptism of Flanders’s Fear, Emil’s courage was extraordinary.
Ordinary things would not cause her heart to have too many ups and downs.
At present, the only thing that could make her feel afraid was Flanders’s Fear and her own work.
“Alright, you guys should hurry back. There’s nothing much. Don’t disturb me.”
For some reason, Emil felt that she had used up all her inspiration recently. No matter how she drew, she could not satisfy herself.
Moreover, the number of nightmares was much less.
For this reason, Emil had been feeling anxious and irritable recently.
All of this was due to the fact that Flanders had been coming to Emil’s side less often recently.
After comparing the profit-benefit ratio between the exhibition and the novel, Flanders devoted more energy to creators like Warfarin.
For an artist like Emil, it was more or less like he had given up.
When would he remember? When would he pay her a visit and bring along another round of Fear.
This was also the reason why Emil had been irritated recently.
After saying that, Emil closed the door, leaving Teach and Kraang looking at each other.
“What should we do?”
“Should we look for this person to understand the situation?”
“There’s no need. I didn’t recognize her just now, but I took a look at the things in her bedroom. I know her identity.”
Teach’s words surprised Kraang. He did not expect that a random girl he met would have an extraordinary identity.
“Is she very famous?”
Kraang usually did not pay attention to art, so he had never heard of Emil’s reputation.
“Yes, she recently held an art exhibition and achieved quite a lot of success. She can be considered a famous and talented female painter.”
Once he heard that it was something like an art exhibition that had nothing to do with a layman like him, Kraang immediately lost interest.
Compared to these useless things in his eyes, he was more concerned about the strange creature that appeared here.
No matter how strange it was, as long as he could subdue it, it would be of great help to him.
“But what’s more interesting is that most of her works are mainly about scarecrows.”
Scarecrow. Kraang’s gaze sharpened as he turned to look at Teach.
Teach nodded at him, indicating that he was the scarecrow you were thinking of.
Kraang lit another cigarette. He took a deep breath and exhaled a large amount of smoke.
The smoke went through the crack in the door and into Emil’s room.
After waiting for a moment, Kraang said faintly, “… This should be a coincidence. Or rather, the other party might have seen that fellow’s figure.”
Just as the two of them were about to leave, a strange sound came from the room behind them that they were supposed to investigate.
Zi Zi Zi-
The sound was very soft, as if something had been placed in a pan and roasted.
