After a month since Crown Prince Yoochun’s death, there were still no solid evidences to be found. I thought that wouldn’t bother me but it has been frustrating me more than it should. I’ve been waiting too long for any news and I do not think it will come anytime soon. Is the Police Bureau poor in doing cases such as this? Wouldn’t they have at least found some kind of evidence by now?
Despite the lacking evidence, what really bothered me the most was that Junsu, Yoochun’s brother, was helping solve this case. Prince Junsu’s specialties were weaponry and battle strategies as expected from a general-prince. So what exactly does he know about mysteries?
Since I am just an ordinary Soron (political official), son-of-a-concubine prince, I have no access in the Police Department. Good thing I have Officer Young-woon’s son, Jonghyun, as my close friend. He was nice enough to allow me to come with him to the police bureau.
As Jonghyun led me to the interrogation yard, he said, “Just to inform you in advance, we have found a few evidences in the crime scene and the King knows about it. Junsu-gun is just keeping it a secret from everyone in the palace since he wants to make sure his suspicions are true.”
“That’s a relief. Have they caught anyone yet?” I asked.
Before Jonghyun could answer, a man who was flailing about from two policemen’s grip was being dragged just a few feet away from us. “What are you going to do to me? I didn’t do anything wrong!” the man shouted constantly. The ragged clothed man suddenly got off from the police men’s grip and ran to me. He threw his hands heavily on my shoulders, startling me and Jonghyun.
With the man clutching my purple hanbok, he pleaded, “Hey you, you’re a noble with a father in the high positions in the government, right? Please help me,” he begged. “I didn’t do anything wrong!”
