A man in his twenties handed me two cans of beer, and I gave him money and casually asked, "Hey, brother, let me ask you something."

"What is it?" Member asked
I thought about how to ask, and finally I thought it was better to see the mountain from the door, so I asked directly, "Dude, has anyone died in your hotel?"
When the man heard this, he looked at me in surprise and became a little stuttering and said, "You, who are you?" Are you a policeman? "
"Well, what’s wrong with me? Where’s the policeman? Have you ever seen a policeman look like me?" I patted him on the back and said calmly, "I’m just asking around."
"I don’t know about this. If you want to inquire, ask someone else." Then the member got up and left.
I quickly stopped him, dragged him to a corner of the hotel and gave him fifty dollars, saying, "Dude, what’s your hurry? I just asked first. I’ve been curious since I was a child. If you don’t tell me, I’ll have to fight insomnia in the second half of my life."
The clerk took fifty dollars and thought about it, then stuffed it back to me and said, "I don’t know. I really don’t know. You’d better ask someone else."
Listen to his words silly can be white, he must know what happened, but it is obvious that he has some taboos about it. It seems that he is afraid of being told by others. I am even more determined to let him say it, so I took out another hundred dollars and stuffed it with fifty dollars just now and said, "Dude doesn’t trust me, does he?" Afraid I’ll leak? Don’t worry, I will never say that you told me the truth and told you that my home is in Northeast Yunnan and I will go back in a few days. "
This time, the clerk took the money and moved his heart. When he heard that I was from the northeast and would not stay in Yunnan again, he was even more relieved. So he led me to the hotel and suddenly lowered his voice and said to me, "I’m afraid to tell you the truth. Maybe I’ll lose my head."
I handed him a cigarette and asked, "What do you mean?"
He looked around and found that there was no one else to continue. "Listen to me and tell you slowly that our hotel did die, and it was not long, just over three months ago. The dead person was a Miao girl."
"Miao girl?" I was surprised at the thought of Long Bujin.
"Yeah, people die in the bathtub. It’s a coincidence that you ask. I’m a witness."
"How did the Miao girl die?" I asked
The officer took a puff at his cigarette and seemed to be concerned. "If I don’t want that thing to happen, it’s because of that girl’s death. I mean, the girl’s death is so strange and the real cause of death is even more horrible."
"oh? Let’s hear it "
"When we found the girl, she was probably dead for several days. She was lying in the bathtub. First, a woman found out that later, he and I arrived at the girl’s death. It was real …"
I was worried to death when I heard his story. I said to myself, why are you such a big old man? But look at his little face, it seems that he has indeed recalled a very bad horrible thing, so I dare not bother more. I just waited patiently while smoking a cigarette.
After a while, the clerk asked me for a cigarette, and then continued, "When the girl first came, we all saw her because her dress was really eye-catching. After that, she was dressed in a standard Miao costume with silverware jingling. She was very good and thin, but when we found her lying in the bathtub, we were all shocked because the girl in the bathtub was nothing like her. At first glance, she looked like a big fat, but then again, it was definitely not a good thing because her body was swollen and showed blue."
"No scars from him?" I interrupted him.
The clerk shook his head and said, "There was no blood in the bathtub. Later, the police came to the hotel to investigate the body and found that the body could not be killed. There was no ligature mark on the neck of the wound. But when the police wanted to carry the body away, the belly of the body suddenly rose. We didn’t care much. When the police moved the body, they got two policemen, one carrying their shoulders and the other carrying their feet. Just look at the girl’s head and the other.
Chapter VI True and False
The next day, I woke up early and was in a bad mood. I stayed up almost all night and didn’t sleep for a while until three or four o’clock in the morning.
I had some breakfast with Bujin Hotel and left for breakfast. I tentatively asked Bujin about last night, but she didn’t say a word. Since last night, she always seemed to be wary of me after seeing me rummaging through her cloth bag. The cloth bag was never put into the suitcase, but finally held in her arms. When I looked at the cloth bag, I was always worried that centipedes and spiders would crawl out. Of course, the box of crawling red larvae last night scared me the most.
I followed my father’s instructions to find his former colleague Wang Chengbao. He dialed the number he gave me last night, and there was a beep and an old voice said, "Hello?"
I replied, "Hello, are you Mr. Wang Chengbao?"
"Who are you?"
"I’m Fan Jiyun. I’m Kun now. My father asked me to come to you."
The person over there thought for a while and said, "Oh, you must be Pei Xi."
So I exchanged a few simple pleasantries with that Wang Chengbao, and he told me to wait for him at a tea house in Kunming first. I hung up and called a taxi and told the driver that he was going to a place. The driver was surprised and said, "How did you two young people go to that place?"
I was a little surprised and asked, "Why is that teahouse different?"
"That’s not true," the driver explained, "but it’s a very ordinary small teahouse. Many people don’t even know that there is such a place, and there are usually some retired old men gathering there. Young people will feel particularly chatty when they go there."
"Oh, I’m looking for someone."
"Look for a person? Do you still have acquaintances there? "
"It’s my father’s former colleague."
When the driver heard this, he opened his eyes wide and looked at me. It seemed that I had a new understanding and said, "Then your father must have been a big shot in Kunming before."
I was surprised and asked, "Why do you say that?"
The driver ha ha a smile and said, "Because the old men in the tea house were all senior government officials when they were young, now they are retired. I want to say that there is nothing good about that place. It’s just a group of retired veteran cadres who are leaning on the old and selling the old, that is, talking about politics. How bad the government is now."
I explained, "No, no, my father is just a university teacher."
Speaking, we have come to the Qing Teahouse, which is really remote as the driver said. Most of the buildings next to it are old cadres’ family buildings. Although there seems to be no one here, the decoration is not bad. The door is a wooden plaque with dark green cursive characters "Qing Ming", and there are also some small tables and rattan chairs. At the moment, more than a dozen 60-and 70-year-olds are sitting in Weiqi, reading newspapers and three or four are sitting around a small table chatting.
As soon as Bujin and I entered the gauze curtain, the original noise suddenly came to an abrupt end, and the expressions of more than a dozen masters all looked at us in unison, which seemed a little surprised. It seems that this teahouse has not been visited by young people all the year round, and it is not surprising that two new people have occasionally come because of these retired cadres’ regular customers, and they are all young people in their twenties.
My shop has been looking around for a week, and I don’t know which one is Wang Chengbao. Maybe he hasn’t come yet. Maybe at this time, those gentlemen have returned to normal and continued to go their separate ways. Bu Jin and I found a remote corner and made it. A middle-aged man in his forties who was missing a front tooth immediately came to ask us what to drink.
I haven’t drunk tea several times since I was a child, and there is no research on tea. No matter how good the tea is, I can’t tell what special fragrance is in my mouth. So I simply said to the man, "You can give me whatever tea those old men drink."
The middle-aged man nodded his head and left after a while, and two cups of warm herbal tea were served. I chatted and tried to talk to Bu Jin, but she ignored me. I guess she was still angry with me last night. After all, she was a girl, and she would be angry, which made her feel a little human.
I sat idle in my mind searching whether I had seen this Wang Chengbao before. Of course, I did hear this name when my father chatted at ordinary times, but he also casually said that he had worked happily with Wang Chengbao before and said some archaeological experiences with Wang Chengbao. But I don’t remember seeing this person Wang Chengbao. Just now, the taxi driver said that most people in this teahouse were retired cadres. I wonder if this Wang Chengbao was really a government official in Kunming?
I was just thinking that a white-haired old man suddenly walked into the door. It seems that he is over 70 years old, but seeing that he is neatly dressed, he should walk with his back straight and look handsome when he was young.
When the old man entered the door, he looked around for a week. Finally, his eyes fell on the position where Bujin and I were, and then he came over with a kind smile and said, "It’s my nephew Pei Xi."
As soon as I heard that, I got up and shook hands with the old man. "Yes, it is the younger generation. Are you Uncle Wang?"
The old man nodded and smiled and said to me, "You’ve grown so big."
I nodded and smiled, and I didn’t know what to say. Most elders usually say this when they meet younger generations, which is to say that time flies.
Wang Chengbao added, "You certainly don’t know me because you were still a baby when I first met you."
"Really!" My emotional intelligence has always been very high, and I quickly attached the peace road.
Wang Chengbao laughed exaggeratedly and said, "Of course, I went to drink your full moon wine. Your father and I are too far away from each other in Yunnan and Northeast China. It’s hard to meet several times on weekdays. It’s been more than 20 years since you met at the full moon banquet. How old are you this year?"
"Twenty-six" I replied.
Then Wang Chengbao asked the owner of the store to make a pot of tea and ask, "Is your father in good health?"
"Fortunately, fortunately, I am not as tough as you."
Wang Chengbao smiled again and said, "The young man is quite good at talking."
I nodded and didn’t say much. I’ve long been annoyed by these no greetings, because I’ve already exchanged greetings for a long time when I called him earlier. I really don’t want to go to the waves again. I hope he can tell me something. My father wants me to stay in Yunnan for the time being these days, and he also specifically told me not to be afraid of any strange things, but to stay here and find this Wang Chengbao in front of me. So now that I’ve found this person, what should I do? It’s not just that they are idle at home.
I thought for a moment and said, "Uncle Wang, I heard from my father that he wanted me to stay in Yunnan for the time being and asked me to come to you and say that you could find me a place to stay. This is really troublesome for you."
"Big nephew, what are you talking about? Your father and I have been friends for decades. Now I haven’t seen his son come to ask me for something for many years. Will I refuse?"
I nodded. "Thank you for taking care of Wang Shu, but I have one thing that is not too white."
"Why doesn’t your father let you leave Yunnan and go back to your hometown?" That Wang Chengbao is really amazing. Before I asked him, he had already seen through what I was thinking. As the saying goes, a man is old and refined, but he has lived for a long time and experienced many things.
Chapter VII Turning the corner
"What did you say?" I screamed almost immediately, so I quickly covered my mouth and looked around. Fortunately, no one noticed me, but after listening to Liu Zhen’s words, I felt a cool breeze coming from my back and suddenly felt that I had fallen into a huge conspiracy.
