罪恶有痕 4

 

“一号嫌疑人比较靠谱, 二号嫌疑人没有一号画得成功. 因为目击者的印象不够清晰, 所以只能尽力而为了.”

刘明天和另几个刑警来看画像时, 老曾特意做了说明.

“我看二号画得也不错嘛, 好象看起来还有点眼熟呢.” 同事们七嘴八舌地调侃起来.

刘明天问老曾, “这两幅画像能不能公布?” 老曾又认真看了看自己的作品, 说, “我看可以, 公布吧, 一号这张把目击证人自己都给吓到了, 她说太像了. 但愿她的记忆是准确的.”

当晚的电视新闻中, 老曾的嫌疑人画像, 在千家万户的屏幕上被反复播放.

 

“妈妈, 那个画上的人好象哥哥啊!”

正在厨房里洗碗的中年女子, 用袖子抹了抹脸上的汗, 歪着头瞟了一眼客厅里的电视, 又转头对女儿无奈地笑笑,”佳佳, 快做你的作业! 你哥咋能象那个人呢? 那是抢劫犯, 是大坏蛋! 不懂不要瞎说.”

她麻利地把手在围裙上擦干, 走过来关了电视. 慈爱地抚摸着女儿的小脑袋. “是不是想哥哥了?”

“嗯.” 女儿委屈地撅起小嘴.

“那过两天妈叫哥过来吃饭?”

“好啊, 好啊!” 女孩仰视母亲的小脸, 立时笑成了一朵花.

[English translation]

Traces of Sin  4

 

“Portrait of suspect one is quite good. The one for suspect two is not as good since the impression left with the witness was not clear enough. That’s the best we could do.”

Mr. Zeng explained specifically when Liu Mingtian and other detectives came to see the portraits.

“In my humble opinion, the portrait for suspect two is not bad, it looks actually a bit familiar.” His colleagues started chit-chat about the drawings.

Liu Mingtian asked Mr. Zeng,”Do you feel OK to release these two portraits?” Mr. Zeng had a careful look at his own drawings once again and said,”Yes, let’s release them. The one for suspect one even scared the witness herself. She said that it resembled the man a lot, I hope her memory is good.”

That night, via the evening TV news, Mr. Zeng’s suspects’ portraits appeared on the screens of million of families.

 

“Mom, the man in the picture looks just like my brother!”

The middle aged woman who was washing dishes in the kitchen wiped her sweat off with her sleeve, and then turned her head around to have a peek on the TV screen in the living room. She then turned back to her daughter, smiling, “Jiajia, mind your own homework please. How could your brother look like that guy? He’s a robber, a scoundrel! For things you don’t understand, please think before you talk.”

She wiped her hands on her apron in an agile manner and walked over to turn off the TV. Then she stroked her daughter’s head affectionately and asked, “Do you miss your brother?”

“Yes.” Her daughter felt upset and put up a pouting face.

“What about I invite your brother to have dinner with us in a few days?”

“Yes, yes!” The girl’s little face looked up at her Mom, blossomed into a flower instantly.
