“Really?” Ye Shengge’s eyes lit up. “Have they caught him?”
“No, his DNA isn’t in the database.” Ji Shiting looked solemn. “But it can at least prove your innocence.”
Ye Shengge smiled gleefully.
After dinner, Ji Shiting went to the study to work as usual. Ye Shengge had been sleeping a lot lately, so she went back to the bedroom to take a shower.
She lay on the bed and clicked on Weibo.
The news about her had lost a lot of its popularity, but it didn’t mean that the netizens had forgotten. She searched and realized that most of the netizens were still lamenting, but they all felt that she shouldn’t take on any more roles in films and dramas because she was responsible for the other staff.
Ye Shengge bit her lips and felt solemn.
Although there was progress in the case, she wouldn’t be able to clear her name if the police couldn’t catch the real culprit.
She thought for a bit and called Producer Chu.
The filming of ‘Meeting Cupid’ was scheduled to start next month, but she didn’t know if anything had happened.
Producer Chu soon picked up the phone.
“Shengge, Um… Ahem, you’re out?” Chu Dongyang was surprised to receive the phone call.
“That’s right, but it’s a secret,” Ye Shengge said jokingly.
When Ye Shengge left the detention center yesterday, Jiang Yu was very careful not to alert any media personnel. He knew how much attention this case was receiving, and the police would definitely be questioned if the news leaked.
Thus, Ye Shengge didn’t contact anyone except her close friends.
She had to call Chu Dongyang for work so she had to remind him to keep it a secret.
However, Chu Dongyang knew what was good for him. He said, “Of course, of course. I won’t spout nonsense.”
“That’s good.” Ye Shengge smiled. “Don’t worry. I’m not the murderer, and my mental state is normal. You don’t have to worry about your safety at all.”
“Um… Of course I’m not worried.” Chu Dongyang’s tone of voice suddenly became deeper. “Let me tell you this, Shengge. Ever since you got into trouble, all the crew members asked me to replace you as the lead actress, otherwise they would quit… I’ve never dared mention this to Mr. Ji…”
Ye Shengge’s heart sank.
What she had been most afraid of had happened.
“I see.” She pursed her lips. “Is that everyone’s attitude?”
“More than 80% of them think so.” Chu Dongyang sighed. “Everyone would rather believe it than not. After all…”
Chu Dongyang didn’t say anything, but Ye Shengge understood what he meant.
After all, no one dared to take the risk.
“I understand. I won’t make things difficult for you.” Ye Shengge smiled.
After the phone call, Ye Shengge turned around and lay on the bed. She covered her belly with her hands and looked rather ill at ease.
Ji Shiting walked in and raised an eyebrow when he saw the woman spacing out.
He walked to the bed and grabbed her hand. “What happened?”
The woman came back to reality and looked at him for a while. She suddenly smiled and said, “Shiting, I think you’re right. It’s indeed not suitable for me tp work in my current situation. I won’t be acting in ‘Meeting Cupid’.”
The man’s pupils dilated. “Aren’t you looking forward to the start of the show?”
