Though without enchanting Shaoyao, Garden of Flower Chant is beautiful and lively as usual.
Orange mallows are conceiving buds, waiting to bloom and make the garden fascinating in may.
Guided by Majordomo Hou, Chen has come to the garden house in the garden, where Madam Foster is supervising some staff arranging bowl flowers, completely unaware of Chen who has been watching aside for a long time.
"Pardon my sudden visit," says Chen when he has made Majordomo Hou leave and waited until Madam Foster seems to be relatively less busy.
"Mr. Chen, my apology for being unable to greet you," says Madam Foster while bowing gently.
"Never mind, Madam Foster."
"I suspect Mr. Chen doesn't just come to appreciate flowers, so what do you want?"
"You brilliantly caught me. My purpose is merely to ask you something."
"Please bring it up."
"Let's find a convenient place." Chen ushers Madam Foster to a stone table set in the garden. After they sit down, he continues,"when we met last time, you said the former landlord of this house was a key to solve the case. Am I right?"
"Have you ever thought that you will become the major suspect if the landlord never shows up?"
