“That fast?” Officer Liu frowned. “Have the appropriate procedures been completed?”
Deep down, he didn’t want Ye Shengge to meet the lawyer. After all, he hadn’t gotten any evidence that the woman had a split personality disorder.
His subordinate nodded and said, “I’ve checked everything. There’s no problem with the procedures.”
Officer Liu frowned and said, “Okay, let him in.”
The defense lawyer requested to meet the person involved while the suspect was in custody. As long as the procedures were complete, Officer Liu had no reason to reject him.
Ye Shengge knew that Ji Shiting must’ve found her a lawyer.
Officer Liu asked the policewoman to untie Ye Shengge and send away the two psychiatrists, but he didn’t leave the interrogation room.
Before long, a tall man walked over.
Officer Liu was dazed for a bit, then he cried out, “Mr. Ji? Why is it you? Sorry, family members can’t meet the suspect!”
Ji Shiting raised an eyebrow and said, “I’m Ms. Ye’s lawyer now.”
“How is that possible? You…”
“Your subordinates have checked all the documents. Perhaps you need to see my bar certification again?” Ji Shiting curled his lips, but his eyes were cold.
Officer Liu was rendered speechless. He glanced at his subordinate, and his subordinate nodded. He could only swallow his anger and say, “No need, Mr. Ji. Please.”
“My conversation with the person involved has the right to not be watched,” Ji Shiting said. “Officer Liu, please leave with your subordinates.”
Officer Liu was upset. With Ji Shiting’s ability, it wasn’t difficult for him to get a bar certification easily, but this man wasn’t unfamiliar with the legal rules.
He could only do as Mr. Ji said.
Ji Shiting entered the interrogation room.
The woman covered her chest with one hand and covered her mouth with the other. She was frowning, and her face was pale. She looked uncomfortable.
Ji Shiting’s heart sank. He walked over and hugged her tightly.
Although they had been separated for less than 24 hours, every second was painful for Ji Shiting.
Ye Shengge was shocked when the man hugged her, but the familiar smell made her eyes burn.
“Shiting?” She couldn’t help mumbling. “Why is it you?”
“I’m your lawyer now.” He smiled and picked her up, letting her sit on his lap. “Are you surprised?”
Ye Shengge wrapped her arms around his neck. She felt a lump in her throat seeing the heartache and worry in the man’s eyes.
“Yes,” she said. “Sorry, Shiting.”
She always dragged him down, and she always made him worry and feel sorry for her.
“What nonsense are you spouting?” The man held her face. “If it weren’t for me, Xie Siqi wouldn’t have come to you. I’m the one who caused you trouble.”
Ye Shengge couldn’t help tearing up and smiling. She said, “Don’t worry. I’m fine. They’re very polite to me. I sleep very well too. Although I don’t eat well, I don’t eat well at home either.”
“Mm.” Ji Shiting swallowed hard and stroked her chin, staring at her face.
The woman didn’t look too good, but there was no fear or panic in her eyes.
