Jun Hua sighed.
“It’s not that I don’t want to help, but it’s not up to me anymore.” He shook his head. “I received a call from the capital before Ji Shiting came. Even the higher-ups were alerted about this case.”
Ling Yutong’s eyes widened. “Is it that serious?”
“What do you think?” Jun Hua was confused. “However, this case is spreading too fast. I feel that things aren’t that simple…”
Ji Shiting drove back to the manor after leaving the government office. He had received a call from his grandpa before he met Jun Hua.
Xie Siqi was dead, and Ye Shengge was behind it.
Grandpa Ji found out both news at the same time, including the public sentiment on the Internet.
Thus, Grandpa Ji said, “It’s lucky you two have separated. Otherwise, you might’ve been the one on the news.”
Grandpa Ji was both relieved and sad. For Xie Siqi and for Ye Shengge.
“Shengge didn’t kill her. She’s innocent,” Ji Shiting loosened his tie and said. “She’s much better now. Her second personality isn’t as cruel and bloodthirsty as before. She didn’t kill Xie Siqi.”
Grandpa Ji was shocked. “How did you know?”
“Because I met Shengge this evening. I was there when the police came to arrest her.” He then added, “She told me herself. I believe her.”
“You…” Grandpa Ji’s expression changed.” Why are you still meeting her? ”
“That’s not the point. The point is, how can I get her out?” Ji Shiting swallowed hard and said. “She can’t stay in detention. That environment isn’t suitable for her body.”
“Shiting, you don’t know what you’re talking about! Why are you still meeting her? Have you been meeting her in private ever since she came back and hiding it from me?” Grandpa Ji got more and more scared. “How do you know that Siqi’s death has nothing to do with her? Of course, she refuses to admit what her second personality did, but that doesn’t mean she’s innocent! I think she should be treated in the mental facility so that she doesn’t hurt the innocent!”
“Grandpa.” Ji Shiting’s voice was still calm, but under that calmness was pain and repression. “If this was really done by the second personality, she won’t deny it. Just like how she would have left me so decisively. If she really could hurt the innocent, she would’ve locked herself up first.”
Grandpa Ji was dazed and speechless. He didn’t have the confidence to question Ye Shengge’s character anymore.
“Most importantly…” Ji Shiting’s voice became hoarse.” She’s pregnant. ”
Grandpa Ji pretended not to understand and asked, “What?!”
“Shengge is pregnant, and the child is mine,” Ji Shiting said. “It’s been a month and a half. I have a diagnosis here. Do you want to read it?”
Grandpa Ji felt as if he had been struck by lightning. After a while, he found his voice and said, “Really? Are… Are you lying to me?”
“I wouldn’t be in such a hurry otherwise.” Ji Shiting clenched his fists. “Her pregnancy reaction is very serious, and she’s very weak. Although the police don’t dare use any intense methods on her, if anything happens…”
