Season 4

Episode 42

(Gu Yusheng, I’m Qin Zhi’ai (2)

Going back to the same road they had been less than ten minutes before, Gu Yusheng arrived at the door of the 24-hour shop where he and his friend loved to go.

Gu Yusheng got out of the car and went to the store where Qin Zhi’ai had spent the money.

It had probably been a long time since any guests had visited. Through the glass door, Gu Yusheng saw the cashier getting drowsy at the checkout counter.

He pushed the door open. A rag doll hanging at the door with a crisp voice said, “welcome,” and the cashier was instantly woken up. She raised her head and looked at Gu Yusheng. After seeing the man’s appearance, her eyes were obviously bright. She wiped the saliva off her lips and stood up to say politely, “Welcome.”

Gu Yusheng took a step without much expression and walked to the checkout counter.

The cashier thought that he would ask her if they carried a product, so she said in a clear and loud voice, “Sir, what can I do for you?”

Gu Yusheng still had no reaction, just like before. He took his wallet out from his pocket, took out a stack of money, put it on the checkout counter, and then asked, “Is the money you received during your shift tonight all here?”

The cashier hurriedly nodded.

“Can I trouble you…” As Gu Yusheng spoke, he pushed the money toward the cashier, and then in the fear that the cashier would think it was fraudulent, he picked up the money and placed it on the side of the money detector. After a while, with the clattering sound of the money in the background, Gu Yusheng continued to say, “To let me look at the 100 Yuan bill you received tonight that has writing on it?”

After that, Gu Yusheng pointed at the money on the money detector with his chin and added, “That’s your reward.”

The cashier’s eyes became brighter. Without any hesitation, she opened the small drawer of the cash register and took out all the 100 Yuan bills she had received that night to look through them one by one.

The cashier had about twenty 100 Yuan bills in her hand. She turned over and looked at them carefully several times. In the end, she only handed Gu Yusheng two.

The first one had a printed advertisement on it.

The second one had three words on it, written in red ballpoint pen, that seemed like a person’s name.

The two pens I bought were black… Gu Yusheng looked at both of the two bills again, then raised his head and asked, “No more?”

“No.” The cashier shook her head and glanced at the “30” displayed on the money detector. Thinking that the 100 Yuan bills she had received that night was less than the amount the man had given her, she handed all the money she had received to Gu Yusheng. “If you don’t believe me, you can check yourself.”

Gu Yusheng didn’t refuse. He took the money and looked at the front and back of each red notes. Each one was the same as the cashier had said, clean and with no traces of writing.

It’s impossible. I obviously saw little troublemaker going into the convenience store and handing them a red 100 Yuan bill at checkout… How could there be no money with her writing on it?

Did she write a word on the bill at all? Or she has not spent the money yet?

Seeing as Gu Yusheng was holding the money and staring at an empty space without moving, the cashier couldn’t help asking, “Sir? Is there a problem?”

Gu Yusheng pulled himself back to reality. He handed the money to the cashier and said “Thank you.” He turned around and walked to the door of the convenience store. When he was about to open the door, Gu Yusheng turned back and asked, “Are all the 100 Yuan bills still here?”
