Chapter 1997: Exhausted

Yun Shishi sneered. “Is this a method of yours to get evidence during investigation? You’re clearly trying to exert pressure on me intentionally.”
“If you didn’t do anything wrong, why would you feel pressured? Only guilty people will feel psychological stress.”
Feeling as if she would never be able to explain herself, the actress let her head hang low as she no longer had the strength to refute.
“Didn’t you say that someone invited you out on the rooftop?”
She nodded her head, feeling the last of her patience ebbing away until she could only numbly answer their questions.
In an interrogation, the way the police officers spoke showed that they were extremely punctilious about minutiae of wording. They were strict, their every word chosen carefully, not allowing for any form of carelessness.
The actress was exhausted from answering them.
“Yes. I received a message from my friend.”
“What’s the name of your manager?”
“What were the contents of the message? Where’s your phone?”
“It’s not with me. I might’ve dropped it on the rooftop…”
A police officer stood up instantly and gave a call to their colleague, who oversaw the examination of the crime scene, requesting them to search the rooftop for evidence.
“Why did your friend invite you there?”
“I don’t know, either.”
“You did not know, yet you went to the rooftop; that doesn’t seem like a logical thing to do.”
“You said that your friend had invited you there, yet you mentioned that your friend did not show up when you encountered the victim. Isn’t that even more illogical?!”
Who knew what was going on?!
She really did receive her agent’s message and did not think too much about it. Even though it was odd, Qin Zhou would sometimes do unplanned things. Previously, he had invited her in the middle of the night to the riverbank to enjoy the cold wind.
Therefore, Yun Shishi did not suspect much when she received the message.
However, recalling everything that had happened now, there were indeed too many loopholes.
For example, even to the present, she still could not figure out why her calls did not go through.
And Mu Wanrou…
She could not comprehend why she would suddenly appear on the rooftop, either.
What was more horrifying was how she saw that woman appearing on her camera when she was preparing to take a photo with her phone… That terrifying scene still lingered in her heart, unwilling to go away.
It felt as if she were in a suspense film.
She was in no mood to accept any form of questioning at all. Her heart was filled with worry as Hua Jin was still in the hospital and she did not know how his injuries were.
Was he fine?
Did his condition worsen?
Previously, at the hotel entrance, she overheard the discussion of the bystanders. Someone said that if he sustained injuries in his stomach or if a vital organ was hit, the doctors would be unable to save him.
Especially under the circumstances of extreme blood loss, she thought of the actor’s wan expression before he was carried away by the ambulance. Her heart began to beat faster again.
“My friend is still in the hospital. Can I visit him? He is hurt; is it very serious?”
The police officer rejected her request sternly. “You’re not allowed to go anywhere until we are done with the transcription!”
Yun Shishi slumped in her chair in defeat. She raised her head and stared at the ceiling light, her gaze vacant in an instant.
When Qin Zhou arrived at the police department, he did a simple registration before walking over. The actress was sitting in the interrogation room; the third round of interrogation had just ended. Still, she was not allowed to leave, and she sat there by herself, feeling helpless.
The door to the interrogation room had been locked from the inside out, with a glass window separating them. He could see his charge frowning, looking clearly exhausted.
He knocked on the window.
The woman was shocked by the sound. The moment she saw him, she instantly lunged for him and seemed to be yelling something at him.
