More Than Meets The Eye

Chapter Text

The whisperings of the name Wei Wuxian in the room was audible like any other day. The achievements that he got were no alien to anybody because everybody knows that Wei Wuxian is the best agent there ever is.

“Hey did you hear? I heard that he solved another mysterious case yesterday.”

“The one that was deemed unsolvable just a few days ago? How??”

“I have no idea but I heard it didn’t even take him three minutes to figure out everything. Can you believe it? He’s a genius I tell you.”

The man sighed. “I will never be able to compete against him.”

Wei Wuxian’s intelligence and wits have always been the best assets to the FBI association, using everything in his power to solve impossible cases that one may take years if someone tried to solve on their own.

Though his way of questioning and attitude during work is highly questionable, many of the bosses and employees around him like to turn blind eyes to that since his intellectual capacity is higher than most of them anyways. He is unquestioningly the best agent in the world.

As the workers were whispering amongst themselves, suddenly the door slammed wide open. Wei Wuxian walked hurriedly amidst the sea of people walking to and fro in the room. With a face that screams ‘stress’ and dark circles under his eyes, the coffee in his hands aren’t making anything better at all. His untidy and unruly hair is beginning to annoy his partner.

“Can’t you look a bit decent this morning?” asked Jiang Cheng. His eyes took a fast glance Wei Wuxian next to him and the look of utter disgust flashed across his eyes.

Wei Wuxian narrowed his eyes at him. “Well, it’s not like I’ve got any sleep to begin with. Besides, Jin Zixun’s incompetency this time was the one that make me struggle hard this time around. It’s not even my case to begin with.”

The case was first given to Jin Zixun as he was the one in the department who is always trying so hard to prove to everyone that he is ‘better’ so they let him be. But as time passed by, they realize that it was much a bigger case and they don’t think Jin Zixun could handle it. So they gave Wei Wuxian the job instead. Wei Wuxian was so happy that he could see Jin Zixun’s fuming face when they decided to give him the case instead but the amount of work he has to do now seem almost as if it was not worth it.

Almost.

They walked to their table and the mess that is on his table greeted him. He sighed.

“I just wish I got a few extra times to myself you know?” He burrowed his eyebrows. Jiang Cheng gave him a look. “Dude if you could do that I would have done that a long time ago.”

Like everyone in this room, he himself is busy with his own case; this time a serial killer is on the loose, leaving motifs of sun drawn in blood behind. The murders happening is slowly starting to get more worrying as the number started to increase daily. There are so many questions that are left unanswered. Is there only a single murderer or do they have an accomplice? Were the murders made by an association or was it copycats from around the town? Will Wei Wuxian ever get a day off or not?

With the rate he’s going on, the answer is most likely never.

Wei Wuxian laid his head on the table and sighs for the umpteenth time.

“Oi, if you got the time to sleep you better bring this to Lan Wangji.” Jiang Cheng shoved the newly acquired piece of evidence they just got today from one of the recent crime scenes.

Upon hearing this, Wei Wuxian instantly brightens up and took the evidence in his hands, hopping off towards the lab.

Jiang Cheng looks behind Wei Wuxian’s disappearing figure muttering, “Sometimes I don’t know what that guy is thinking.”
