“Hello, I am the room manager; are you Mr. Qin?”
“Is Madam Yun Shishi a friend of yours from work?”
Hearing this, he opened the door anxiously.
The room manager stood by the door with an urgent and guilty expression.
“Did something happen to her?” asked Qin Zhou.
“It’s like this… The madam is currently a suspect in a homicide case. She’s already been brought away by the police for investigation.”
He stiffened in shock.
“Homicide?” He laughed all of a sudden. “What kind of joke are you pulling?”
The room manager smiled back politely. “I am not joking with you.”
With that, she passed a name card to him with both hands. He took it and saw that it was indeed the name card of the uniformed personnel from the public security bureau. On it was the police department’s address and contact number.
Qin Zhou’s expression froze in an instant. With his eyebrows creased, he raised his head and inquired, “When was she taken away?”
“About fifteen minutes ago.”
“Homicide… Since it’s a homicide case, who is the victim?”
“A young woman. Her identity is currently unknown, and it is beyond our authority to know more than this.” The room manager nodded her head. “I’ve already relayed the situation to you; do you have any other questions?”
She turned around and left.
He held the name card tightly in his hand and dashed back into his room. After changing into a set of casual wear, he rushed anxiously to the address of the police department stated in the name card.
When he walked to the hotel’s entrance and was preparing to take a cab, he saw the flashing lights of the ambulance.
He cast a sidelong glance over, only to see that the body had been taken care of and was being sent to the morgue.
However, despite it being late in the night and the lights being dim, the scarlet and coagulated blood on the ground remained extremely striking.
The weather was cold; thus, the blood had solidified.
Qin Zhou frowned. As he watched the ambulance leave, an indescribable chilliness surfaced in his heart.
In the police department, the incandescent light was bright and painful to the eyes.
Yun Shishi had a cup in her hands, but she did not feel thirsty at all. She was only using it for warmth as her hands were too cold.
A few policemen sat opposite her, with pens in their hands as they questioned her while taking down notes.
It was silent in the interrogation room aside from the voices of the police officers echoing incessantly in her ears.
Were the voices of all uniformed men made to sound like bells in order to intimidate criminals?
After an hour of transcription and endless inquiry, she was exhausted.
It would be more appropriate to call it an interrogation, instead.
Only the heavens knew why she wanted to end this interrogation urgently.
Hua Jin was still in the hospital, and his condition was unknown.
She could not calm her heart down for even a moment, yet she had no choice but to be trapped here right now and endure this dull and torturous interrogation.
No matter how much she tried to explain herself, the police officers continued to question her like a criminal. Perhaps it was a method of interrogation, but she truly did not kill anyone.
She did not kill anyone!
Yun Shishi lethargically continued to defend herself against the police officers’ interrogation. “Police comrades, you don’t have to use such an unyielding attitude toward me. I really, really didn’t kill anyone! When are you all going to release me?”
“It isn’t up to your words whether you did kill someone or not! We must go through a thorough investigation before getting the results! Right now, this is just a prior suspicion. We have yet to make any conclusion. You don’t have to keep explaining yourself. In fact, it makes it more suspicious that you are doing so. You seem to have something to hide!”
