Chapter 94: Murderer.
Shen Yuanye forgot about the embarrassing incident of watching Jiang Pan at the mall and being discovered in the blink of an eye.
Before Qiu Ling’s birthday, she watched the death video several more times and experimented on her bed.
However, she still couldn’t determine the murderer’s height.
There was only one piece of information at present.
The murderer and Qiu Ling had a very good relationship because the murderer had the keys to the apartment.
Qiu Ling was sleeping, which meant that this person either didn’t leave or opened the door by themselves.
Obviously, the possibility of the latter was more likely.
Since Qiu Ling could give her apartment key to them, that meant that she and the murderer had a good relationship.
Qiu Ling’s birthday party was at her apartment.
Although the place was not big, it was good enough for just a dozen people.
Plus, the party wouldn’t take long.
It would take just a few hours.

“You still brought a gift” Qiu Ling had already said that she didn’t need to bring one, but how could Shen Yuanye bring nothing when Qiu Ling was the birthday girl
Everyone was already here.
Qiu Ling introduced them one by one.
Shen Yuanye also took advantage of the situation to look at all ten people, trying to see if she could figure out something from them.
As for Shen Yuanye, several boys were surprised when they saw her.
But as soon as they noticed her height, they backed away.
She was about 1.8 meters tall.
She was taller than them, even if they wore high heels.
(TLN: 1.8 meters is about 5’9″ feet)
Shen Yuanye could see the thoughts in their eyes and didn’t speak.
She chose a corner position and conversed with Qiu Ling for a few minutes.
Then, she acted as a transparent person, observing other people.
In a few words, the relationship between these people was also revealed.
Qian Yun and Liu Huanxin were Qiu Ling’s high school classmates, and the other six were college classmates.
The remaining two men were actors from the company, one named Lu Jian and the other named Su Zhengyu.
They all knew each other because of Qiu Ling’s introduction.
Although some of them were not very familiar with each other, they could talk to each other.
So it became a group of people who came to celebrate her birthday.
Except for Qiu Ling, who was a model and entered the entertainment industry, the other six college classmates had different occupations, basically involving several industries.
Only Chen Zhen and Li Mei were in the same company.
Lu Jian and Su Zhengyu were very handsome, and their popularity was quite good compared to the people around them.
At half-past eight, Qian Yun received a call.
It was too noisy outside in the living room, so she simply entered Qiu Ling’s room and shut the door.
Shen Yuanye’s attention was immediately attracted to her.
In less than two minutes, Qian Yun came out and directly said, “Oh no, Qiu Ling, my dad is now home.
I have to go back before ten o’clock.
Why don’t you guys continue I’ll leave first.”
Shen Yuanye still remembered that she had opened the door to Qiu Ling’s room herself.
If she truly left this early and the reason she gave was also true, then her suspicion level would be lowered.
It wasn’t that she didn’t have any suspicion; it was just that compared to other people, it was less.
Qiu Ling thought for a while, “Since uncle is back, it would be bad if you didn’t go back home, so go ahead.
It’s just a day anyway, so it doesn’t make any difference.”
Qian Yun’s father was notoriously strict with his daughter.
When they had gone to school together, he had always set a time for when she had to be home.
Once, they had overplayed, and Qian Yun was punished at home the next day and did not go to school.
A group of people nodded, “I don’t mind.”
“I don’t mind either.”
“Earlier is good too; go back early and don’t stay up late, or you’ll be dozing off at work tomorrow.”
Several people chatted and laughed, and casually mentioned the interesting things that happened during school.
It made Shen Yuanye, who was sitting on the side, feel that their relationship was very good.
She was a little more familiar with these ten people now.
Qian Yun volunteered to go to the kitchen with Qiu Ling because everyone hadn’t eaten dinner, and they had to eat something before the cake.
In the kitchen, Qian Yun was preparing something to drink, while Qiu Ling was cutting fruit beside her.
The laughter from outside came in, and Qian Yun could still see some things happening through the glass window.
She turned her head and asked, “Qiu Ling, does Lu Jian have a girlfriend I asked him and he said no.
Is it true You are in the same company as him, so you must know.
The last time I asked you, you didn’t say anything.”
“Hiss.” Qiu Ling sucked in a breath of cold air.
Qian Yun hurried to see, “What’s wrong”
“I accidentally cut the side of it.” Qiu Ling put her finger in her mouth and sucked it, bowing her head and saying, “You have to ask him about this kind of thing…”
Qian Yun stared at her and directly asked, “Would I ask you if he would answer when I asked It’s not like you don’t know that I have liked him since a year ago.”
Qiu Ling listened to her words, “The fruit is ready; I’m going out.”
She left the kitchen with the fruit bowl, leaving Qian Yun there.
Qian Yun gritted her teeth and took out her phone.
She glanced at it, typed a word, and finally followed her out with the cups.
Everyone unceremoniously reached for the food.
Liu Huanxin leaned over to Qian Yun’s side and asked in a low voice, “How is it Did you get an answer”
Qian Yun’s expression was not good.
“I didn’t get an answer.
She didn’t say anything.
The reaction was exactly the same as last time.”
“Why wouldn’t she answer it It’s not like it’s something bad.
If there is one, then there is one.
If not, then no.” Liu Huanxin pouted, and suddenly approached her again, “Tell me, will this…”
She didn’t finish her words, but Qian Yun understood the meaning.
Qian Yun took a piece of orange and lowered her head.
Her eyes were covered with bangs, and she said, “Forget it, let’s not talk about this.
It’s her birthday today; let’s talk about something cheerful.”
Qiu Ling put the fruit plate on the table.
When she looked up, she saw Li Mei on the far left of the sofa, looking down and playing with her phone.
She walked over and took Li Mei’s phone, “Playing on your phone here”
“Don’t move!” Li Mei immediately stood up and shouted.
No one took it seriously.
Qiu Ling saw her nervous appearance and reached out to her, “Who are you sending a secret message to Looking at you like this, I will definitely smear your face with cake later.”
Li Mei put away her phone and breathed a sigh of relief.
She glanced at her and said with a smile, “Come on! Let’s see who smears it on whom.
They started laughing and chatting again.
After half an hour, the cake was taken out.
Maybe because Shen Yuanye was an outsider, except for Qiu Ling, who gave her a plate of cake, no one else smeared cake on her face.
There was still cream falling on the floor in the living room, and Qiu Ling even got it in her hair, which looked terrible.
It wasn’t until nine o’clock that the cake was finally eaten.
Qian Yun also left early at this time.
Before leaving, she went to the bathroom to wash the cream off.
She accidentally tripped over Li Mei, and said with a smile, “I’m sorry, I didn’t see you.
My eyes were covered with cake.”
Li Mei waved her hand.
Qian Yun’s departure led the way, and soon the group of people said goodbye and left.
In the end, she, Li Mei, and Chen Zhen were left.
Shen Yuanye saw that Qiu Ling had no intention of going to sleep.
Li Mei suddenly said, “Chen Zhen, give me a ride please It’s on the way.”
Chen Zhen, who was talking to Qiu Ling, turned his head and said, “Okay, wait a minute.
My gift is still in the car.
I’ll go get it to give to Qiu Ling.”
He said this and went downstairs.
Qiu Ling smiled, “Before Chen Zhen entered the door empty-handed, I thought he was here to steal the cake, but I didn’t expect the gift to be given now.”
Li Mei sat opposite her.
Her eyes flashed slightly, and she laughed, “Qiu Ling, you have to see what he has prepared.
If it isn’t good, it doesn’t count.”
Just as they were talking, Chen Zhen came up with a big box, half the height of a person.
Qiu Ling opened it, and there was a beautiful figure inside.
It could be seen that it was custom-made, and the hair, eyes, and skin were very real.
Immediately, she exclaimed, “How much is this Is it very expensive It must have been a huge expense.
Seeing her happy, Chen Zhen smiled, “As long as you like it.”
It was getting late, and he didn’t say much.
After chatting for a while, he was about to leave.
Li Mei followed behind him, “Qiu Ling, we will leave first.”
The two left at the same time.
In the end, only Shen Yuanye remained in the apartment.
She saw that it was almost time, got up, and said, “I’m going to leave too.”
Shen Yuanye had been sitting in the corner before, observing the behaviour of ten people.
So far, almost none of them made her feel suspicious.
Qiu Ling came over, “So early”
“It’s ten o’clock.” Shen Yuanye looked at the time.
At this time, she had to go back to wash and sleep, otherwise, she would have dark circles under her eyes.
Qiu Ling nodded, “Okay, then I’ll give you a ride.”
Shen Yuanye refused: “Someone came to pick me up; you still have to clean up yourself.”
She waved her phone, and when she came to the door, she suddenly said, “Qiu Ling, is it just you that has the keys to your apartment My agent had asked for a copy of mine.”
Qiu Ling was surprised by her question, but she still replied: “My agent asked, but I didn’t give her one because she always scolds me.
I’m afraid she would come in randomly to scold me, so I’m the only one that has it.
Speaking of which, today was so chaotic, I don’t even know where I put the key.”
She turned to look for it.
Shen Yuanye’s eyes flashed, “Look for it.”
Qiu Ling’s voice came out of the room, “I found it.”
Shen Yuanye now knew that no one had stolen the key, and no one else had a copy of the key, so the murderer had come in by improper means.
But she didn’t know who it was.
“I’ll go first.”
When Qiu Ling heard this, she quickly ran out of the room, “Be careful on the road!”
When she got to the elevator, Shen Yuanye couldn’t help but turn her head.
Qiu Ling was sticking her head out the door, and she waved her hand with a smile when she saw Shen Yuanye looking back.
Shen Yuanye entered the elevator, and at the last second, she saw that Qiu Ling was the one that closed the door.
All ten people left, and Qiu Ling hadn’t gone to bed during the party, but she was almost certain to die today.
This meant that she went to sleep after all the people left.
Shen Yuanye couldn’t figure it out for a while.
Was this murderer among the ten people, or outside of the ten people
