“Sure, sure!” The old man agreed without hesitation .
When they reached the interrogation room, the police officer got the father-daughter pair to go in first . After he retrieved the necessary documents, he sat across the table from them .
Upon seeing him, Yun Yecheng hastily raised a question . “I’d like to find out—”
“We need to complete the standard procedure first before I can answer any questions from you . ”
Still looking dazed, the old man could only nod in acquiescence .
“Did your wife go by the name ‘Li Qin’ and was she forty-nine years old?”
He nodded . “Yes . She would have passed her 50th birthday if she were still alive . ”
“Did you know if she had any grudges with anyone while she was still alive?”
“I don’t think so! Although she had a bad temperament and often got into arguments with others, she didn’t have grave enemies—at least, not any that I’ve heard of . ”
“How about her relationship with the neighbors?”
The old man thought about it for a while before answering . “It wasn’t good, I suppose! She had a vicious mouth and often got into arguments with our neighbors . Her relationship with them wasn’t considered peaceful . ”
The police officer pressed on . “Was there anything out of the ordinary before she disappeared?”
He shook his head .
“Alright, then . Pardon me for asking this…” The police continued his probing after a slight pause . “How’s your relationship with her?”
He gave an honest reply after a sigh . “Our relationship wasn’t that good . I often quarreled with her, too . She was demanding and unreasonable . Her difficult personality might’ve been aggravated by her menopausal… so even small, insignificant affairs could lead to arguments between us . ”
“Were there incidences of domestic violence?”
The old man returned a forlorn smile . “Yes . She would hit me when she was agitated . I never raised my hand against her, though . ”
The policeman made a note in his files and quickly threw in the next question . “Can I take it that you weren’t on good terms with her?”
“Yes, you could say so . ”
“When was the last time you saw her—where and when?”
The other party replied, “I can’t remember the exact date and time, but the last time I saw her was at the hospital with my daughter . ”
“Yes! My daughter was hospitalized, then . At that time, she got into some trouble and was disfigured . My wife wanted me to come up with the money for her reconstructive surgery, but I didn’t have any money! We had a huge fight over this, and I threatened to divorce her . When I returned to the hospital the next day, though, they were gone . ”
“Both of them?”
A glint flashed across the young man’s eyes .
“Yes . Yun Na, my daughter, was gone, too . ”
“You mean to say that your daughter and your wife disappeared at the same time?”
The old man retorted in a fluster, “This was what I wanted to check with you! My daughter is missing, too, and I don’t know what has happened to her, or where she is now!”
He was worried that she had also met the same mishap .
Since the police had picked up his wife’s body, he was most concerned with his daughter’s safety . There was no news of her even now .
“You said that they had disappeared for some time; why didn’t you make a police report immediately?” The police questioned him with a sharp abruptness .
The question stumped the old man .
The young police did not let up in his interrogation . “Logically speaking, one will be worried when his wife and daughter go missing . ”
“Honestly… I didn’t read much into their disappearance . ”Please download our sponsor's game to support us!
