Chapter 1894: Nightmarish Memories
Two extreme personalities—one dark, devilish and the other pure, angelic—resided in the boy.
It was why he had become this ruthless and vicious, harboring evil thoughts a mere seven-year-old should not have, whenever his dark side came out after his dissociation.
However, once his host personality—the angelic one—returned, he would hold no memories of the things he had done as his other personality.
Naturally so, he had no impression of the things he had done to Li Qin and Yun Na.
Mu Yichen became somewhat restless and anxious at the sight of his younger brother’s deep, troubled frown.
“Lil’ bro, you don’t look okay. What did daddy say?”
“He said that they have an issue to settle, so they may reach home slightly late. He wants us to wait for them patiently.”
It got him worried.
Sensing his twin’s unease, the younger boy faintly assured him. “Don’t be too worried, fool. Our parents are fine. It’s just that grandpa received a call, asking him to help with identifying a corpse, from the police earlier in the day.”
His older brother was shocked to hear that. “A corpse?!”
“The deceased is a woman named Li Qin. She was grandpa’s decades-long wife and our mommy’s foster mother.” The boy’s lips curled into a cold smirk at his mention of that elderly woman, and with a look of indifference, he breezily added. “In fact, going by seniority, I should be addressing her as ‘grandma’! I was reluctant to call her that, though. She was a mean person who often bullied mommy when she was still alive.”
He continued speaking after a beat. “She, along with her daughter, vanished without a trace some time ago, but a cadaver, which was fished out from the sea by a fisherman a month ago, is suspected of being that old hag’s as it matched the descriptions of her, so the police wanted grandpa to identify it. Mommy is with him right now; I suppose they’re still giving statements at the precinct!”
His older brother fell silent at the absurdity of the news before airing his sentiments with a frown. “Why would she go missing out of the blue and end up being recovered from the sea? That’s no suicide attempt. Rather, it appears premeditated.”
“Why do you say that?”
“It’s my instincts telling me so,” replied Little Yichen with a laugh.
Case investigation, being one of the important subjects taught to him during his training at a boot camp, had honed his awareness and intuition to become particularly acute.
The stunned younger twin then saw him clasping his hands behind his back before slowly smiling. “Of course, it’s not only that. Just calmly analyze it. You can see that there’s no need for a suicidal person to go all the way to the sea to kill themselves. Think about it; the capital’s prime, coastal area is where the Long Ping River meets the Eastern Sea. Supposing that she did commit suicide, she would have to take a boat ride to the Eastern Sea first. The thing is, though, only a handful of harbors are situated in the capital, and all are heavily barricaded. It’s why I suspect that she was murdered.”
‘I suspect that she was murdered.’
Those few words sent Youyou’s mind into turmoil at once.
He appeared to have been injected with fragmented memories. The pleading cries of women, along with ferocious waves of thoughts, came crashing down into his chaotic mind in just moments!
The boy fell back onto the sofa in a daze and gripped his pounding forehead. He was currently in a state of inexplicable shock and uneasiness.
A few images of a certain event came flashing across his mind.
‘Not only are you an orphaned wretch, your son is also a freaking b*st*rd! You two are scourges and the banes of my life!’
