There doesn't seem to be anybody suspicious among the guests. Discuss the next steps with NXX members.
You: I couldn't get anything of value.
Luke: ...Me neither.
Marius: Me too.
Vyn: Maybe we have to find another way to get information.
At this moment, everyone in the villa wears the same frightened and wary look on their face.
It is uncomfortable to remain in what was originally a simple and elegant estate, which has now turned into a dangerous cage.
With the situation unclear, it is dangerous to share any information...
Better to be safe than sorry.
???: I have the clues you want, but what will I get in return for telling you?
You: You are... Tony?
The man approaching you is the same man who greeted all of you shortly after arriving at the villa.
Tony: How about a deal?
Tony: I'll tell you what I know and you tell me what you've found. Give me the chance to make the headlines.
Luke: What do you know?
Luke narrows his eyes and stares at Tony.
You: We can't...
You want to signal Luke, but he responds with a reassuring gesture.
You: (What is Luke trying to do?)
Tony: I know you're looking for someone who needs insulin injections...
Tony: I also know who among the guests has insulin injections. How's that for information?
You: You were the one who was eavesdropping on us!?
Tony: Miss [Player], it sounds bad when you put it that way. It wasn't eavesdropping... I was simply walking by and overheard something.
Vyn: If you wanted to make a deal, why not enter the room back then?
Vyn: Why wait until we are in the living room to negotiate a deal?
Tony: I was nervous! There are so many of you and only one of me... I was afraid I'd get overwhelmed.
It seems Tony has no idea of the moral integrity of the NXX team. He's afraid of being threatened to give up this information.
But in the living room, he's relatively safe with other people watching.
Tony: I thought about it, and it wouldn't be a bad thing even if we are trapped here unable to find the killer.
Tony: Besides, if you are willing to share information, the headline story will be mine when I get out of here.
He laughs as if imagining his headline story exploding on the Internet.
Marius: Tell us what you know first.
Tony: Sam Zhang is a diabetic, and he has insulin injections.
Tony: Yes! I'm sure he has insulin injections. I saw him sticking needles in his stomach yesterday in the lounge!
Tony: Besides, Mevis Zeng died after Sam Zhang left the study.
Tony: I don't believe for a moment that he's not a suspect! Well? A great clue, right?
Tony: Now, it's your turn to give me something in return, yes?
He smiles calmly as if certain that you will all honor your end of the deal.
Marius: Hmm? When did we acknowledge that a deal was made? You kinda gave us that information by yourself, no?
Tony: You... You're breaking the contract!
Marius: What contract? I merely asked what you knew and you told us everything.
Marius: I didn't know you would be so honest.
Tony: Damn, you tricked me!
Marius: Don't get worked up. I would advise you to keep your bad intentions at bay.
Marius: Who knows? Maybe the killer will think you know too much, and...
Marius lowers his voice deliberately to create a terrifying effect.
Tony's face goes white. It is clear that Marius' words are effective.
You: (Honestly, Marius is...)
Tony leaves without saying anything else, probably too pissed off.
But the clues he offered has opened up a new path of investigation.
Marius: Everyone, do you think the reporter is reliable?
Luke: I think so. He was far too anxious to build a relationship with us to trick us with false information.
Artem: I have my reservations.
Artem: His information may be true, but he had ulterior motives for approaching us.
Vyn: [Player], what do you think?
You: I believe Tony's information is true. He had no reason to lie to us.
Vyn: I agree. There are still many questions surrounding Sam Zhang...
Vyn: We can use the information Tony gave us to investigate Sam Zhang.
You: I don't believe in Tony... Just like Mr. Wing said, his motives are not pure.
You: So, I also have my reservations about whether we should use this information to investigate Sam Zhang.
Vyn: Yes, a man with ulterior motives must be taken with a grain of salt.
Vyn: And there are still many questions surrounding Sam Zhang...
Vyn: I would still like to investigate him.
Marius: In that case, let's do that.
Marius: If you ask me... Why don't we just go talk to Sam Zhang and see how he reacts?
You: Yeah... That works too!
You: We might be able to ascertain something from his attitude.
