The Ground Rhino pulled the black monster car to the entrance of Union Government in less than 10 minutes. Lin Huang got off the car first and as he held the door open, he extended his hand. Qin Wei hesitated before she decided to let Lin Huang hold her.
"Thanks." Qin Wei said softly after she got off the car.
Liang Yin who was rushing to work saw what happened and smirked as she asked, "Is this your girlfriend?"
"No, shes a friend." Lin Huang knew Liang Yin would not let him off so easily so he attempted to distract her.
"Have you just arrived at work? Have you had breakfast?"
"Is she really not your girlfriend?" Liang Yin knew what kind of trick Lin Huang was trying to pull on her so she asked again.
"Shes really isnt." Lin Huang nodded as he knew there was nothing that he could do about her quirk.
"This is no fun at all" Liang Yin was unsatisfied.
"Are you here for me?" She asked.
"No, the Brain Eater has been killed. Were here to submit the mission." Lin Huang said.
"I really must thank you for helping me this time." Lin Huang added.
"If you really want to thank me, how about you give me the carcass after youve submitted your mission? I have never dissected a Brain Eater" Liang Yin was excited.
"I dont think I can give it to you because it belongs to Qin Wei." Lin Huang said.
"Her partner who was on the mission with her was killed by the Brain Eater. She must bring the body back."
Liang Yin then looked at Wei Qin but decided to let it go.
"Nevermind then, treat me to a good meal when youre free. I wont bother you anymore, Im leaving for my office."
Liang Yin left, waving her hand to Lin Huang who was standing behind her.
"Your friend is interesting." Qin Wei commented as Liang Yin left.
"The food that she eats is even more interesting" Hearing that comment, Lin Huang could not help but laugh.
"What does she eat?" Qin Wei did not understand what Lin Huang meant.
"Nothing." Lin Huang did not think that it was a topic that he should continue.
"Lets get down to business."
The submission of the mission was simple. All he had to do was to show the carcass and describe how he managed to accomplish the mission. In less than 10 minutes, Lin Huang had submitted the mission and received the reward of 3,000 Life Crystals. Later on, he passed the body to Qin Wei and they left the Union Government office together.
"Let me get you a drink, we can talk about the Brain Eater as well." Qin Wei took the initiative to invite Lin Huang out.
"Sure." Lin Huang did not reject her.
"I know a nice cafe here. A friend recommended it, Ive been there a couple of times in the past few days." Qin Wei suggested.
"Its not far from here, just five to six minutes away."
"Lets go there then, I havent had coffee for a while." Lin Huang nodded.
Luoxi City was not a developed foothold. However, it was crowded on the streets when it was nine in the morning. Many were looking at them as they walked on the streets as Lin Huang was handsome while Qin Wei was pretty. They looked like an old couple when they walked together.
After five to six minutes of walking, they found a cafe in an alley. It was not really big but it looked rather exquisite. The entire building was made of bamboo, including the floor and furniture.
The owner of the cafe was a middle-aged man with a mustache. He was almost 1.8 or 1.9 meters tall. Her footsteps were loud when he walked on the bamboo floor. Although he did not look friendly, he was passionate.
"You brought a friend today?" The cafe owner smiled while looking at Lin Huang as he greeted Qin Wei.
"Yes. Same old same old." Qin Wei said.
"Which flavor would you like? He could get you anything here." Qin Wei asked Lin Huang.
"I would like a black coffee please." Lin Huang decided without even thinking.
"Black coffee is bitter, are you sure you want that?" Qin Wei did not understand Lin Huangs odd preference.
"Would you like milk and sugar?" The cafe owner was calm.
"No, just a regular black coffee will do." Lin Huang shook his head.
"Please take a seat and wait a moment." The cafe owner gestured them to sit.
Qin Wei brought Lin Huang to the rooftop balcony on the third floor like it was her second home. They then got themselves a table.
"It seems like youve been here many times." Lin Huang laughed.
"I come here almost every day in the past few days." Qin Wei nodded and smiled.
"When you taste their coffee later, youll understand why I come here every day."
"Youve got me excited now." Lin Huang smiled.
"Ive quite a few questions to ask you regarding the mission. Before I slept last night, I came up with a list." Qin Wei said while she projected the list.
Lin Huang took a quick glance and saw 20 to 30 items on the list.
"Ill start with the question that Ive been dying to ask." Qin Wei moved the projection to the table in front of her. After some browsing, she looked up at Lin Huang.
"First question, how did you know Wu Hao was meeting the Brain Eater? Also, why were they together?"
"Would you like the truth or a lie? Wu Hao was your partner, if theres something that you dont want to know about, I can make up a story. If youre just writing a report to your management, theres no need for them to know the truth." Lin Huang did not answer Qin Wei directly as he looked at her in all seriousness.
Qin Wei hesitated and said, "Id like to know the truth."
"Alright then. The truth is, Wu Hao coincidentally asked the host of the Brain Eater out when he was using the application Chilly Night. Thats how they met, you know what happened next I know about this as the application was created by a friend of mine. He had the authorization to look at their conversation." Lin Huang told the truth.
Qin Wei was silent when she heard what Lin Huang said. A while later, she asked, "How about a lie? How would you come up with a lie?"
"Wu Hao figured out who the Brain Eaters host was but he was killed while he was hunting it down. I happened to pass by and saw what happened, thats how I know he was the Brain Eater." Lin Huang spoke the story that he made up.
"Alright then, second question" Qin Wei went silent after that and asked her second question.
