When a Snail Falls in Love Chapter 56.2

Ohhh geesh. The suspense continues to build… The case is pretty graphic, so there is definitely some PG-13 content in this one!

Chapter 56.2

While Ji Bai and Xu Xu were driving down the City road, in a distant room, another young lady was being ushered into the most horrifying period in her life.

The woman had been dressed in a light blue dress, and her whole body was radiant and clean. Her wrists and ankles were shackled to the bed, and there was no way for her to get it off.

The door squeaked open, and a man strode in. The woman’s entire body trembled, and she shrank into the bed as far as she could. However, she was only able to watch him coming closer.

The man smiled at her. He first removed his own clothes, exposing his bare, strong body, then pulled her into his embrace and took off her clothes, one piece at a time. When she was lying like a lamb before his eyes, he did not immediately move to conquer her. Instead, he lowered his head to her skin and sniffed his way down her body, inch by inch.

“You smell really nice,” he muttered.

The woman forced a smile, but goose bumps surfaced on her skin. The man saw them, but was not angry. He brought over a cup of water from the table and handed it to her. A mournful expression appeared on the woman’s face, but she could do nothing but drink the water he handed her.

The reaction was swift. Her pale body flushed red, and she could hear the groans which she was unable to repress. The man stayed at the bedside, quietly observing her contorted body, his Adam’s apple slowly bobbing.

After a while, he took out a camera, and the flash went off constantly. Her misty eyes, damp private parts, were all clearly recorded. Then he threw the camera to one side, took hold of her waist firmly, bent his head to look at his hand as he grasp his erect, red organ, and fiercely thrust his way inside.

In the empty silence of the room, the sound of bodies pounding resounded continuously, a scene of desolation and depravity, seemingly lasting forever, without end.

“Do you like that I want you?”

“I like it . . . like it . . .” the woman sounded as if she was sobbing with joy.

“Call me.”

“Husband . . . husband . . .”

“Anything else?”

“I love you . . . I love you . . .”

Ji Bai and Xu Xu drove directly to the provincial hall to find Xu Xu’s senior, Sun Qinglin, in his office.

When Sun Qinglin saw them he was a little surprised. After a slight hesitation, he asked: “Ji Bai, Xu Xu, what’s the matter?”

Xu Xu handed the murder scene photos to him: “Senior Brother, do you recall this scene?”

Sun Qinglin took a look and his face suddenly changed.

During her time at the police academy, Xu Xu mainly assisted the professor with the studies of US-based cases. The cases from Asia were generally handled by Sun Qinglin. Although Xu Xu had a vague impression of where she had seen a similar picture, she was not as sure as Sun Qinglin. He quickly took out a box of information from the filing cabinet and put it in front of the two.

It was a picture as beautiful as a painting. A beautiful young woman was lying on the ground, curled to one side. She was lying on the grass. The landscape, the forest, the stream next to her…..even the style of the clothing was all similar to the deceased Bai AnAn. They were of warm colours, and looked fresh and soft.

Sun Qinglin sat down and said: “This happened three years ago and is from Hong Kong’s ‘Angel Killer’ case. To our knowledge, there were eight victims, but there may have be more unknown victims. The victims were all 22-25 year old white-collar workers and had been missing for some time. This case was a sensation in Hong Kong at that time.”

Ji Bai and Xu Xu nodded. They had heard of this case, but had no in-depth knowledge.

Sun Qinglin picked up the the murder scene photo: “During the police hunt, the murderer fell into the sea and was presumed dead. Some people say that he died, while others say that he fled abroad. However, after seeing this photo, I’m quite sure that this is either the murderer himself, or his fanatical imitator.”

Ji Bai and Xu Xu were silent. Xu Xu asked: “Senior Brother, since you’ve studied this case, do you have his criminal psychological profile?”

Sun Qinglin replied: “I not only have his psychological profile, I have all his information and photos.” His tone grew more and more solemn as he continued, “He is from Lin City.”

He quickly located a file, and gave it to them.

The man in the photo was very young, wearing a simple white shirt, trousers and a tie. His head was flat, he had an angular face with handsome features, thin lips, and a slight smile.

Carrying on, Sun Qinglin said: “Feng Ye was 22 years old at that time. He’s 25 years old this year. Due to his outstanding achievements, he was admitted to the University of Hong Kong with a full scholarship. He was part of the Department of Architecture and after graduation, he joined a listed company to obtain Hong Kong resident status. He was later a wanted criminal in Hong Kong, and disappeared.”

He sighed, “ If he did not die, he must be back in Lin City……”

Ji Bai asked: “Do you have his Lin City address?”

“Yes.” He flipped through the data and extracted the information for them.

Half an hour later, Ji Bai parked his car in an area of the city, where the living quarters of old state-owned enterprises, were located. At the same time, the criminal investigation team was mobilised and were keeping an alert eye on their surroundings.

According to the information on Feng Ye, which the two passed on to the team, a search for a similar person was ordered in the city. Concurrently, the Hong Kong police were also contacted for more information. Everyone heard the news and were both excited and solemn.

As Ji Bai walked in the narrow lanes of the old city area that led inside, he asked: “Do you want to wait in the car?”

Xu Xu glanced at him: “No need.”

Ji Bai no longer persuaded her; he only told the other members of the team to be more careful.

As the murderer of this case was in a psychologically volatile state, Xu Xu’s work would play a very significant role. He, as Captain of the team, could not exclude her.

He could only protect her better.

Feng Ye’s home was on the sixth floor and the person who opened the door was his uncle. He was a thin man who was more than 40 years old, a factory technician.

“Does Feng Ye have any close relatives?” Xu Xu asked.

He said: “No, his parents died early.” After some hesitation, he asked: “Police comrades, what do you want to investigate? The Hong Kong case……it has already been more than a few years. Feng Ye has already died after falling into the sea.”

They did not answer. “We would like to see Feng Ye’s personal belongings,” Ji Bai said.

Uncle nodded and led them to the balcony, pointing to the debris at the corner balcony: “Many things have already been thrown away, the remainder are here. You can have a look.” Maybe he didn’t want to talk anymore, and so he turned around ready to leave.

Ji Bai asked: “Did anyone drop by recently to ask about Feng Ye?”

Uncle was a bit surprised: “No, of course not.”

“Did anything unusual happen at home recently?”

Uncle looked at him with surprise: “How did you know? Last month, there was an intruder. It was in the middle of the night. I heard some movement and went to the balcony. The thief had left everything in a mess but nothing was missing.”

Ji Bai and Xu Xu felt a chill in their heart – this thief, could it be related to Feng Ye?

After Feng Ye’s uncle answered their questions, he went to the living room. Ji Bai and Xu Xu picked up Feng Ye’s things, and looked carefully through it. About half an hour later, Ji Bai was suddenly surprised, and handed a picture to Xu Xu.

It was Feng Ye’s high school graduation photo. He stood in the middle of the back row and looked a bit more juvenile and handsome than in Sun Qinglin’s photo. Xu Xu did not see anything strange as her eyes quickly swept over the photo. On closer inspection of the girls in the front row, her heart skipped a beat: “Yao Meng?”

Ji Bai nodded: “They were classmates.”

In the photo, Yao Meng had long hair and she was wearing a uniform. She looked delicate and charming.

Xu Xu: ”I will tell the police station to contact her and see if she knows anything about Feng Ye’s situation.”

They continued to look through photos, but these were Feng Ye’s childhood photos and did not yield any valuable clues. Ji Bai then picked up a pile of books to start looking through them, when suddenly he was stunned. He took out a photo and handed it to Xu Xu.

Xu Xu looked and was also shocked.

It was a single photo of Yao Meng. She was wearing the uniform of the police academy, sitting under a sun shade, and reading with her head bent down. There was a silhouette of a pedestrian beside her which she seemed unaware of.

It looked like the photo was taken a few years ago.

    1. I just started watching this drama on youtube. I like the lead playing Ji Bai and XuXu. Not quite according to the novel but interesting adaptation. No english sub there but thanks to your translation, I am able to follow the dialogue there. 🙂


  2. Please don’t tell me that girl in the beginning is Yao Meng! Her boyfriend seemed sane enough, but then again, not all crazies look crazy!
    I like that Ji Bai is not being pushy with Xu Xu… He is respecting her opinion and knows his priorities! Way to go Ji Bai! I just hope Xu Xu doesn’t end up getting kidnapped again!
    Thanks for the update 🙂


  3. So the killer is someone from Yao Men life! Did she refused him in the past and that’s why he keeps on doing these killings? He needs women to experience pleasure or at least needs to feel that he’s giving them pleasure so I wonder if he failed with Yao Meng in that chapter! As always Ji Bai is so protective of her.. But so low key doing so 😍


  4. Thank you for the awsome translation work on this novel. I watched the drama and enjoyed it very much and love how the novel actually develops the professional and personal relationship between the two leads in more depth. For someone who has just entered the C Novel world you work is very much appreciated. Looking forward to the next chapter 🙂
