Chapter 1887: 1887

“That’s impossible, right?” The more she thought about it, the more bewildered she became . Shaking her head, she voiced her thoughts . “They’ve been gone for months . If something had happened to them, their bodies should’ve long decayed…”

“I had the same thinking, too, but the police told me that they couldn’t confirm the time of death yet . The body was found tied to heavy rocks when it was recovered from the sea . It’s also badly mangled due to strong water pressure . From their preliminary assessment, they believed that the body had sunk to the seafloor as deep as a few thousand meters . Few creatures could survive at that depth, and the corpse would take at least a year to disintegrate fully . The ropes broke apart after a long time of impact from the sea, and that was how the body slowly floated up . One-third of it had been eaten by fishes by the time they recovered the corpse . It was a revolting sight . ”

His daughter had a sudden urge to throw up when she heard that .

“Do we need to check on the body later?”

Her father nodded gravely to her question .

With a heavy sigh, she took a seat beside him .

Seeing the pale and frightened look on Yun Yecheng’s face, her husband poured a glass of lukewarm water for him .

“Please have some water . You look terrible now . ”

The old man returned a few quick thanks for his kind gesture .

The young man sat down beside his father-in-law . Gently patting the latter’s shoulder, he comforted the fretful old man . “Uncle, calm down and don’t make wild guesses . ”

The latter shook his head in resignation . “I’m in such a daze now . The only question in my head is: Who can this person be?”

Can that be Li Qin or Yun Na?

His heart wrangled painfully the moment he thought of that possibility .

As a saying went, a tiger would not attack their cubs no matter how fierce it was .

Her daughter was such a disgrace, but she was still his flesh and blood .

No matter how angry he was with her, the possibility of her passing before him was an unbearable thought .

With his hands clenched into fists, he looked withdrawn while sitting on the bench . Inwardly, though, he was fighting tumultuous emotions .

Images of Yun Na’s young and adorable self flashed across his mind . He had held her tightly in his arms when she was just delivered . At that time, he had looked at her with such pride and love…

In his heart, he could only pray that the body belonged to neither his wife nor his daughter .

The two might have committed many foolish acts, but he still did not wish it to be either of them .

Likewise, Yun Shishi did not have it better .

She reckoned that the mother-daughter pair had left of their will without a word .

In the end, bizarre deaths might have accounted for their disappearance .

The body was recovered from the sea, then?

Her father looked up abruptly and probed, “Shishi, do you wish… that the body is…”

“No, I don’t . ”

She knew what he was trying to find out and her answer was ‘no’ .

He nodded at her reply with relief .

“I thought you hate her . ”

“Yes, dad; I hate her, but I’m not that heartless to want her dead . ”

Mu Yazhe looked at his watch . One hour had passed since they arrived with no sight of any police officer .

Their tardiness displeased him; hence, he went to a corner to make a call .

Before long, the police chief was seen hurrying over .

Yun Yecheng stood up nervously when he saw the chief approaching, but the latter did not even spare him a glance as he tramped toward the young man .
