It was dead quiet in the night with the dimming of the neon lights.
Outside the police station, Yun Shishi was politely escorted to an extended Lincoln by the chief police officer himself. He even braved the rain to hold an umbrella for her.
She could hardly believe that this man with a smiling face was the same person who had treated her apathetically before.
Dressed in a smart office attire, Min Yu elegantly stood in front of the car with a smile on his face and an umbrella overhead.
However, he could no longer smile when he saw her miserable and haggard appearance.
"Miss Yun, are you all right?" the man's assistant asked out of concern. "Did you suffer in the police station?"
"How could that be?! Oh, my. How could we let Miss Yun suffer?"
The chief police officer smiled awkwardly as he tried to dig his way out of this thorny situation.
The secretary merely moved to open the back door for her as he said, "Chief Qian, I'll have to trouble you with this matter!"
Filled with fear and trepidation, the elderly police whispered, "Oh, it's not an issue at all! I'm the one troubling you all! I should be expressing my gratitude, instead, for receiving Chairman Mu's care all this time!"
The latter smiled before frowning slightly. "As for Mr. Li Dongliang's side…"
"Don't worry; I'll handle this properly! No matter what, Mr. Li, he he…" The elderly chief police officer laughed flatteringly and deliberately lowered his voice. "He still has to show obeisance to Master Mu, hasn't he?"
He was absolutely not wrong in this matter.
Even though that old director was an impressive figure in the capital, he was nothing as compared to Mu Yazhe!
The secretary nodded smilingly. "That's good."
The elderly chief police officer glanced at the woman, feeling great unease when he recalled locking her up in the detention cell for hours. Turning his head, he apologized humbly, "Miss Yun, please forgive me for my ignorance! Please don't hold any grudges for any unintentional offense!"
She furrowed her brows in indifference and boarded the car without replying.
The driver started the car's engine started and they drove away under the watch of the chief police officer.
The car interior was a little chilly. Afraid that she would catch a cold when he saw her shuddering, the secretary ordered the driver to turn on the heater.
She stared fixedly at him sans any expression. Her eyes, though, were somewhat wary and guarded.
"Who are you?"
The woman apparently did not recognize him as she had no strong impression of him.
He did not know whether to laugh or cry at her guarded and suspicious look. Immediately, he explained, "I'm the CEO's assistant. We met in Chairman Mu's office once!"
He smiled kindly at her upon seeing her wariness. "Don't you remember? You were in my boss's office a few days ago…"
His sincere smile gave her great relief.
Judging that she had not gotten over her scare from her heavy breathing, he patted her shoulder reassuringly. "Don't be scared! It's all over now; you're all right! I'm Chairman Mu's employee, not a bad person!"
Her voice trembled in agitation when she suddenly recalled him. "Was it… Mu Yazhe who bailed me out?"
