罪恶有痕 23

 

然而, 她的话并没有得到足够的重视。警察不动声色地继续他们的问题。

“我怎么知道他现在在哪儿? 他该在哪儿, 还在哪儿啊。你们去他上班的地方找过吗? 他住的地方呢?”

“他刚把租的房子退掉, 也辞了职。没人知道他去哪儿了。你是他母亲, 他跟你讲过要离开的打算吗?” 警察仍然心平气和地提问, 可文素云的心里却象烧起了一把火.

“这不可能!我儿子这个周末才来我这儿吃过饭呢,怎么可能说走就走呢?”

文素云的近乎叫喊的反问并没有引起两个警察的反感,正相反,她在他们的眼中, 似乎觉察到了同情的成分。这种同情让她心生恐惧。难道,立群是真的出事了?

然而, 她的話並沒有得到足夠的重視。警察不動聲色地繼續他們的問題。

“我怎麼知道他現在在哪兒? 他該在哪兒, 還在哪兒啊。你們去他上班的地方找過嗎? 他住的地方呢?”

“他剛把租的房子退掉, 也辭了職。沒人知道他去哪兒了。你是他母親, 他跟你講過要離開的打算嗎?” 警察仍然心平氣和地提問, 可文素雲的心裏卻象燒起了一把火.

“這不可能!我兒子這個週末才來我這兒吃過飯呢,怎麼可能說走就走呢?”

文素雲的近乎叫喊的反問並沒有引起兩個警察的反感,正相反,她在他們的眼中, 似乎覺察到了同情的成分。這種同情讓她心生恐懼。難道,立群是真的出事了?

Traces of Sin  23

However, her comment didn’t attract enough attention. The police still went on with their questions calmly.

“How could I know where he is now? He should be where he should be. Have you visited his work place? Also the place he lives?”

“He just signed out from his renting lease and quit his job. Nobody knows where he has gone to. You are his Mom. Did he tell you about his plan to leave?” The police asked kindly. However, the question lit up fire in Wen’s heart.

“That’s not possible! My son just had dinner at my home this past weekend. How could he leave just like that?”

Wen’s almost-yelling pitch didn’t bring any disturbance at all to the police. On the contrary, she sensed sympathy in their eyes. That brought her even more fear. Could that be true that Liqun did commit to something illegal?
