Chapter 2009: Are you sure it was her?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
It was not until 2:50 AM that the plane took off.
When the man turned on his phone, he received a lengthy message from Qin Zhou, which was a summary of what had happened to the actress.
He phoned the manager at once, and the call only connected after ringing for a while. The other’s surprised voice was heard from the other end.
The agent sounded so shocked it was as though he had bumped into a ghost.
Never did he think that his boss would fly over to Sea City overnight. In fact, he thought that he would not come at all!
“Why are you here, boss?”
“Where is she?”
“Uh… at the hospital.”
The man was about to hang up the call after receiving the hospital address from him when he blurted out, “Boss, is it convenient for you to make a trip down to the police station where I’m currently at?”
“What is it?”
“You don’t have to worry about Shishi for now. She’s only suffering from slight abrasions, and I’ve already sent my men to protect her. There’s a slight problem on my end, though, so I hope that you can come over to deal with it.”
“Deal with it by yourself!”
“I wish I could do that, sir. If I had such authority, I wouldn’t trouble you.”
A frown settled on Mu Yazhe’s face, his expression turning grave.
“What is it?”
Half an hour later, the man arrived at the public security bureau.
Qin Zhou got so worked up when he saw the man that he promptly rose to his feet and rushed over to greet him.
“Boss, you’re here!”
Signs of fatigue could be seen on the man’s face, for he hardly slept a wink due to this overnight schedule. In fact, the average person would have already collapsed at that point. Even with his amazing stamina, he was feeling slightly tired right now. His exhausted look called for pity.
He had never revealed such a haggard look.
Upon noticing this, the star agent told him out of concern, “Boss, you look burned out. Do you want to get some rest first?”
“Spill it. What’s the matter?”
He waved the other’s concern and just went straight to the point.
The agent cast a complicated look at the assistant, who appeared equally worried for their boss, and sipped his lips in resignation. “Mu Wanrou is dead.”
His superior appeared a bit shocked by the news.
“How did she die?”
He then gave him an overview of the events that had happened that night.
“The police are now suspecting that Shishi murdered that woman. All evidence is working against her favor, and every clue taken from the scene can’t prove her innocence at all. I bailed Shishi out earlier, but based on the current situation, the police will likely summon her for another round of questioning soon.”
“Why would Mu Wanrou appear in Sea City?!” Min Yu raised a doubt. “Wasn’t she locked up in the asylum?”
“I have no idea, either.”
A baffled look crossed the manager’s face.
The man’s eyes were gleaming as he asked askance, “Are you sure it’s her?”
“The corpse has been placed in the morgue. Although… she fell from a high building, and her body has been badly deformed, she’s still recognizable.”
He then ordered his assistant. “Send someone to find out what happened at the asylum.”
“Boss, do you mean—”
His countenance grew cold and dark. “How could a lunatic escape from the asylum on her own? It’s impossible without external help!”
If that was the case, then this matter would become much more complicated.
From how crazy that woman had become, how could she possibly sneak out of the asylum, which was heavily guarded twenty-four seven, with that unclear head of hers?
