A blood-curdling screech resonated across the massive room…
The ambulance and the police car were parked neatly beside each other at the front gate. The blaring siren attracted the attention of people.
Yun Shishi sat motionlessly on the living room's sofa as she blankly looked at her bloodied hands; her body was trembling all over.
A strong wave of guilt engulfed her when she looked at the bright red blood on her hands; she found them filthy.
Hence, she took the towel the manager previously handed to her and wiped her hands hard with it.
Getting the gist of the situation from questioning the maids in the villa, a group of uniformed policemen walked up to her.
"Excuse me. Are you Yun Shishi?"
Raising her head dazedly, she found several uniformed policemen coldly sizing her up.
She nodded numbly with a frown.
"You're suspected of intentional assault; you'll have to come with us!"
She placed down the towel and slowly stood up with pursed lips and droopy eyes.
It was late into the night. The initial drizzle soon turned into a downpour, and fat raindrops hit the window with pitter-patter .
When she alighted from the police car, she was entirely drenched from the rain. Her face hurt from the raindrops splashing on it.
She slowly raised her face, allowing cold raindrops to drip into her aching eyes. The wound on her lips hurt when the rainwater seeped in.
Her footsteps came to a halt when she saw the nearing police station logo. Her heart, along with her despair, started sinking bit by bit in the cold rain.
There was a moment when she felt especially tired, be it physically or mentally.
Seeing her standing emotionlessly in the heavy rain, the police reached out to push her, and this caused her to stumble and fall to the ground.
Her eyes drooped vacuously as she belatedly held up her arms.
The policeman could not help feeling irritated as he walked over and helped her up while sighing audibly. "I've seen people with weak bodies, but I've never seen anyone so delicate like you! How could you fall with just a push? Can't you stand properly? If you want to be drenched by the rain, then don't implicate us, okay? Stop wasting time and hurry inside the station!"
With that, the man urged her forward by pushing on her shoulder.
She weakly replied, "I did nothing wrong. I didn't do it on purpose, too…"
"We must investigate the case before we can know whether you did something wrong or not! It's not on your word alone! Get in!"
"Let me make a call! Make a call!"
"What call?! Who are you calling when you haven't even been interrogated yet?! Get in!"
He then forcefully dragged her into the police station.
In the police station, the woman sat quietly on the sofa with her arms hugging her shoulders as she curled up in fear. She was so numbed that she looked like a lifeless puppet.
Holding a pen and a booklet in hand, Mo Chengan placed a cup of hot tea before her and turned to take a seat in front of the table. He was the captain of the police force and also the one in charge of her case.
She took a glance at him.
The man in uniform had a big build. His angular facial structure gave him prominent features, and coupled with a pair of sharp and narrow eagle eyes, guilty criminals tended to feel nervous with one look from him.
