Ji Shiting hung up the phone and met her eyes.
He smiled and asked, “What happened?”
“Who were you talking to?” Ye Shengge asked. “It sounded like a girl.”
“Yes, it’s a girl.” He nodded.
Ye Shengge glared at him.
Ji Shiting chuckled and said, “Jiang Yu allowed me to bail you out because of her.”
Ye Shengge blinked and said, “Didn’t you say she’s my fan?”
“That’s right. That’s what she said.” Ji Shiting wrapped his arms around her shoulders. “But she made a condition, and I agreed.”
Ye Shengge’s eyelashes fluttered, and she clenched her fists.
She hadn’t dared to think about how great of a price he had paid for it, but now that he had admitted it, she suddenly felt suffocated, and she didn’t even dare ask what the girl’s conditions were.
Ji Shiting curled his lips and said, “What are you thinking?”
She grabbed his waist and buried her face in his chest. “Nothing… Shiting, actually, I’m fine with staying in the detention center. After all, the evidence isn’t enough to convict me.”
The only trouble was that Jiang Yu had already determined that she had dissociative identity disorder, but even so, it didn’t mean she was necessarily a murderer. The second personality wasn’t dangerous anymore, and they had no reason to lock her in a mental hospital.
“What nonsense are you spouting?” Ji Shiting cupped her face. “How could I let you stay in a place like that?”
“Don’t worry. Her condition is simple.” Ji Shiting smiled. “I didn’t sacrifice anything. I just need to spend some money. To me, anything that can be solved with money isn’t a problem.”
Ye Shengge was dazed. “Really? You’re not lying to me, are you?”
“Do you believe I’ll ask her to come here and clarify with you?” Ji Shiting raised an eyebrow.
“No need.” Ye Shengge was a bit embarrassed. “I trust you.”
He smiled and kissed her forehead. “Don’t be afraid.”
“How’s the case going?” Ye Shengge couldn’t help but ask. “When are they going to file a lawsuit?”
She had been immersed in the joy of reuniting with him the past couple of days, and had deliberately ignored the fact that she was still a suspect. However, she knew that escaping wasn’t an option. If Officer Liu and the others couldn’t find the real culprit, she would be the one being prosecuted.
“When they catch the real culprit.” Ji Shiting’s eyes dimmed. “They won’t dare to sue if they can’t.”
In a luxurious manor in Yang City, Jing Tong threw her phone on the sofa, feeling cheated.
She wasn’t a stranger to Yang City, and her friends and family were here, but she didn’t tell anyone. Instead, she lived on her own property.
After all, her goal this time was to regain her pride. If people knew that she was in Yang City, they would definitely think she had followed Jiang Yu again. That would be so embarrassing.
She had stopped Ji Shiting that day to cooperate with him, and she had foolishly believed Ji Shiting when he had suggested that he had a better way to let her get what she wanted. However, now that Ye Shengge had successfully left the detention center, Ji Shiting still hadn’t done anything yet.
She called him to rush him, but he didn’t give her any confirmation.
She wanted to scold him.
