Chapter 1885: Identifying the Body
She went silent, poking an index finger to the other out of embarrassment.
The man caressed her head while looking at her crestfallen face and huffed. “What insolence! I’ll ban her tomorrow.”
She was tickled by his indulgence. Stifling a chuckle, she broke into a ‘hooray!’”Power to my Hubby the Great!”
“Look at you!”
Her palms balled up into fists. “Let’s not wait for tomorrow; do it tonight, instead! I didn’t wanna bother with that b*tch, but she dared seduce my hubby right under my nose! I can’t wait for tomorrow to mete out punishment!”
Mu Yazhe: “…”
He tittered out of the blue. “Alright! She’ll be banned tonight.”
Even the man could see how doting he was toward his woman.
“My hubby is the best!”
“Don’t sulk anymore. Let’s have dinner.”
“Alright!” She nodded eagerly, still giddy with revelry.
Her phone rang right at this moment.
She picked it up and glanced at the screen; the call was from her father.
His uneasy voice could be heard once the line got through. “Shishi, where are you? Are you busy now?”
“No, dad; I just got off work and am on my way to dinner.”
“Can you come over to the police station on Shifang Road?” His father’s voice was strangely hoarse.
Normally, he would check on her once she got off work. No matter how important his matter at hand was, he would wait for her to have dinner first before discussing anything further.
Today, however, he sounded unusually anxious and fearful.
She was taken aback by his request. “Police station? Dad, what happened?”
“I’m unsure, either! I just got here after receiving a call from the police. Can you come over now?”
The man could detect something amiss as she hung up the call and asked quizzically, “What is it?”
“Dad asked me to go to the police station now for something important.”
“Police station?” He knitted his brows in surprise. “Which one?”
“On Shifang Road.”
He signaled a change in direction with the car indicator, made a turn, and sped toward their new destination.
When they arrived at the police post, they immediately saw Yun Yecheng sitting on a long bench. Looking lost and apprehensive, he was anxiously rubbing his palms.
She walked over and placed her hand gently on his shoulder, asking concernedly, “Dad, what happened?”
The old man looked up and was about to say something when he spotted his son-in-law walking in after parking the car.
“Uncle, how are you doing?” greeted Mu Yazhe politely.
He nodded hastily and tried to force a smile. Nevertheless, it could not shield the look of distress on his face.
“Daughter, I received a call from the police. They said that they had recovered a body and wanted me to assist in identifying it. I was so shocked, thinking that something might have happened to you. When I got here, I was told that the person found has been dead for some time. I don’t know what’s going on…”
Yun Shishi was stunned.
“Yes!” Her father nodded and continued after swallowing a gulp. “The body was recovered by a fisherman when he was out fishing in the sea. The body has badly decomposed by then, so the face is beyond recognition.”
“When did this happen?” she asked hesitatingly.
He replied after a pause. “The body was discovered about half a month ago.”
