As he was worried about Xuxu’s body condition, Qiao Jian drove very slowly.
Sitting at the front passenger seat, Xuxu rested her head on the headrest. She closed her eyes to take a rest, in a bid to look better so that Yan Rusheng would not feel worried for her when he saw her later.
“Regarding the matter that I’ve entrusted you to do, how’s it coming along?” she asked Qiao Jian with her eyes closed.
Qiao Jian replied, “Before President Yan was taken to the police station, he had already instructed me to look into them. So, don’t worry, Lady Boss, President Yan will be fine.”
Xuxu wasn’t at all surprised when she heard this.
If she could think of it, Yan Rusheng would be able to as well.
Qiao Jian had already made the necessary arrangements before they left for the coastal county’s police station. The moment his car stopped at the courtyard, someone approached them, wearing a police uniform.
“Young Madam Yan.”
Qiao Jian pointed to the middle-aged man standing in front of them and made an introduction to Xuxu. “Young madam, he is Chief Ma of the Coastal County Police Station.
Xuxu smiled and acknowledged him. “Hello, Chief Ma.”
After briefly exchanging pleasantries, Chief Ma took Xuxu to visit Yan Rusheng.
Yan Rusheng had personally requested to wait in the interrogation room for the findings of the investigation.
In that tiny cramped space, he sat on a plastic chair, lazily leaning against it. He was smartly dressed in his suit, as usual, looking poised and exuding a sense of elegance.
“President Yan, Young Madam is here.” Chief Ma opened the door to the interrogation room for Xuxu and smiled at Yan Rusheng as he informed him.
Yan Rusheng immediately sat up straight. Excitement and anticipation could be seen from his deep-set eyes.
A day apart seemed like three years. He had not seen her for three days and three nights.
Seeing Xuxu’s petite figure and exquisite-looking face, Yan Rusheng concealed his emotions and reprimanded her, “Dumb woman, why didn’t you listen to me? Who allowed you to come?”
When Xuxu saw him, her eyes instantly sparkled and she couldn’t help but hastened her steps. She knitted her eyebrows. “So how? Was it comfortable here?”
She walked over and sat facing Yan Rusheng. With both hands rested on the table, she fixed her gaze on his gorgeous face.
She wondered if the problem lies with her. Somehow, she felt that he had become skinnier—her heart ached.
“It’s my first experience, and it feels quite good, actually.” Yan Rusheng lazily leaned back again and beamed brightly at her.
Xuxu glared at him. “In that case, I’ll speak to them later to let you stay put for a few more days”
Yan Rusheng laughed. “I don’t think they have the guts to do so.”
Noticing the smile on Yan Rusheng’s face, which resembled a blooming flower, the look in Xuxu’s eyes deepened. She whispered, “Does he also have a part to play in this matter?”
Yan Rusheng shook his head and calmly replied, “No.”
It baffled Xuxu. “Why are you so sure?”
Although she disliked Second brother, she still asked, “How do you explain the accident that took place?”
Yan Rusheng looked at Xuxu with all seriousness in his eyes. “You’ve got to believe my judgment. It won’t be wrong.”
As he said that, a streak of coldness flashed past his eyes. “Whoever is using this opportunity to attack me, the answer will come to light very soon.”
“I believe you.” Xuxu nodded and looked intently at him again. “You… you intend to cover up for him?”
Yan Rusheng raised his eyebrows and asked, “What about you? Do you want me to do it?”
Xuxu looked down and started twiddling her thumbs.
Yes, indeed. But did she want him to do it? Was he capable of doing it?
All of a sudden, Yan Rusheng stretched out his hand and held Xuxu’s hands. “Xuxu, let’s give him some time.”
He spoke in a consultative manner.
