Chapter 54 Attorney Huang’s Unusual Interest
Luo Hao, dressed in a blue police uniform, was holding a foaming mug of tea in one hand while combing his flattop hair with the other. He appeared extremely capable.
He walked into the room, closed the door, and put his mug on the table. Then he dragged a chair and sat down in front of Qin Chao.
“Well, you ought to have clearly thought about this. Tell me everything. Your proceeding will depend on your approach to this confession. If you honestly confess, you will be treated with leniency. But if you try to deny, harsh treatment will be waiting for you. Now, confess!”
“Fine, I will tell you everything.” Guessing that this is just a trap, Qin Chao merely lazily leaned against the heater and said, “My name is Qin Chao, 23 years old, male, unmarried, and single. Currently working in Guangyuan School for International Economics as a security guard, with 4000 yuan monthly salary. Still cannot afford a house. There was an expert in the eighties that said our generation’s woman will marry 40 years old men. Doesn’t that mean we’re going to let 40 years old men to marry 20 years old women? I think that expert was really fucked up.”
“Qin Chao!” Luo Hao’s eyes are bulging, the more he listened, the more outrageous Qin Chaos words became. He slapped his chair, stood up, and furiously pointed at Qin Chao’s nose, “I’m telling you, your name has been mentioned directly by this city leadership. Don’t try to act as if someone will come and help you. You’re alone and friendless in this Suzhou city. I’d like to see who can get an arrogant man like you, out of here!”
Luo Hao put a piece of paper in front of Qin Chao, and said, “You deliberately tried to murder Miss Zhang Cuilan. The witness’s testimony and material evidence have been clearly investigated by us; your excuses are useless. Also, I ask you, do you have a connection with this ten-one-three case? We have investigated that you had an argument with Fang Hua, and once, you even beat him in the school! Confess, you’re the perpetrator of this case aren’t you?”
“Dude, do you smoke?” Qin Chao slightly wrinkles his brow, but he cleverly hides it with his hand. His other hand makes a smoking signal toward Luo Hao.
Qin Chao’s mind began to run in a circle. Luo Hao unexpectedly suspects that he had a connection with the ten-one-three case. Did he recognize me (Luo Hao is the police that shot Qin Chao’s shoulder)? But looking at his manner, that did not seem likely. Maybe this police is just trying to cheat me by throwing yellow mud on my pants; that’s all.
After figuring this, Qin Chao concealed his expression and calmly watched Luo Hao.
“If you do not confess, not only you’re not allowed to smoke, you’re even not allowed to drink water.”
“This is a police abuse.”
“There’s no need to treat a murderer like you with such human consideration.” Luo Hao sits down again. He pulls out a light Chunghua cigarette and fiercely puffs it.
“Then you wouldn’t be bothered by this then.” In front of Luo Hao’s stupefied look, Qin Chao pulled his hand. With a ‘crash’ sound, the handcuffs that were connected to the heater were now unexpectedly dangling from Qin Chao’s wrist. Surprisingly, they were forcibly ripped off!
Qin Chao’s hand pulled out his package of five yuan red river cigarettes. While leaning against the heater, his other hand pulled out a lighter, and he proceeded to light one.
“You….how did you do that….?” Luo Hao was stunned for a moment, his Chunghwa cigarette fell out of his hand and burned a hole through his police uniform.
“Ah!” Feeling the burn, he shouts, jumps from his chair, then brushes that cigarette butt.
“Do you have any connections with this?” Qin Chao is leisurely leaning on the heater. It seems like he’s not the one who’s being interrogated like a criminal, but Luo Hao is.
“What arrogance!” Luo Hao gnashed his teeth, then shouted, “You’re just a murder suspect. Even if your strength is big, can you escape the bullet of justice?”
“Whom did I kill?” Qin Chao spits out his cigarette, sneers, and then asks, “Do your police always do a crappy investigation like this? The witnesses and evidence that you said, where are they? Why haven’t I seen them?”
After that, Qin Chao took out his cell phone, looked at it, then said, “It been almost four hours since you’ve arrested me. You can hold me for another 20 hours, and it doesn’t matter to me. I can continue to accompany you and waste time here.
Qin Chao thought that, at the worst, he will just be absent for today’s work. Moreover, Su Ji will certainly ask for a leave on behalf of him. Although they would probably deduct his wage….forget it, after all, how much money could they deduct from his salary with just one absence? He can manage it.
“Your slyness could not save you.” Luo Hao sneers, points at the paper on the floor, and said, “Think carefully. When you finished thinking, you can sign on this document. I’m telling you, the longer you drag this out, the more you will suffer.”
After that, he picked up his mug off the table, and then without going back to reattach Qin Chao’s handcuffs, he left the interrogation room.
Of course, Qin Chao also knows that he can’t just walk out of here because this police station is full of Luo Hao’s men. Under their gaze, even taking advantages of 100 legs, he still cannot run away.
If he really wants to escape, he can stealthily escape. But once he escapes, he will not be able to show himself again in public for a lifetime.
So, he simply doesn’t escape. He is ready to throw caution to the wind, by waiting 24 hours, to see what kind of tricks these cops will play.
Let see who will be the first to blink.
After several hours, Qin Chao already finished his pack of cigarettes, but no police came to see him again. He just put the chair close to the table, sit there, then put both of his feet on the table, leaning there like a big boss.
Until three o’clock in the afternoon, the door to the interrogation room finally pushed open again.
A man in a black suit, holding a briefcase, came in. When he pushed the gold-rimmed glasses on his nose and saw Qin Chao, he was stupefied. He stepped back two steps to looked again, and sure enough, he is sure that this is the interrogation room.
“I strongly protest!” That gold-rimmed glasses man, who looks like a very reserved man, immediately shouted, “You’ve made my client crazy, you see, he is not like a normal person!”
“He is normal.” Luo Hao came with a deadpan reply, “We merely detained him according to the law. We have not abused him in the slightest. If you don’t believe, you can take him to a physician to test if he has any injury.”
“Hello, my name is Huang Tianliang. Miss Su Ji hired me specifically to represent you in this case.” That gold-rimmed glasses man strode over, shook Qin Chao’s hand, and introduced himself, “You are now free to leave. But if they have treated you with any kind excessive means, you can tell me.”
“It’s nothing; they just won’t let me eat or drink.” Qin Chao tells him while beckoning with his hand.
“Excellent.” Huang Tianliang nodded. Then he turned around and immediately began to protest very sternly, “I protest, you have abused my client. I will sue you!”
“Go ahead!” Luo Hao ignored this lawyer, turned around and left the interrogation room.
“Actually, I just try to scare them. This kind of complaint probably is a commonplace here.” Huang Tianliang shows a smiling face to Qin Chao, “Su Ji and I are old classmates. When I heard that her friend is in trouble, I hurriedly rushed over. What’s the matter, I heard that you are a murderer?”
“Um, yeah, apparently I killed an Aunty, who was going to do grocery shopping.” Qin Chao shrugged his shoulders. Under the gaze of a group of police officers, he and Huang Tianliang openly left the police station.
“What is the motive?”
“How could I know? You’ll have to ask them for that.” Qin Chao pointed to the police station behind them. As if he already aware, Huang Tianliang nodded.
“It seems you provoked the people that shouldn’t be provoked.” This attorney Huang whispered in Qin Chao’s ear.
“How would I know….” Although he clearly knew who was behind this, he did not say it.
Outside the police station, Su Ji, accompanied by Qin Chao’s lucky old bike, was waiting for Qin Chao. Seeing Qin Chao come out, unexpectedly this chick’s eyes become red, and she immediately rushed to hugged Qin Chao’s waist.
“Oh Heaven, you finally came out! Almost scared me to death!” This chick’s hands is quite strong, making Qin Chao slightly unable to breathe.
“Did they hit you?” Su Ji looked up and staring at Qin Chao’s face. It seems like she wants to see if there are any signs of contusion.
“No, they did not have this ability.” Qin Chao proudly said. He is now an immortal cultivator. He doesn’t afraid of such a thing as a fight.
“That’s good then, that’s good….”
“Cough cough…” The nearby Huang Tianliang pretended to cough twice.
Realizing that there was also a man who stood nearby, Su Ji’s face immediately become slightly blush. She released Qin Chao’s waist and took a step backward.
“Beauty, no wonder you always rejects the many people that pursue you all these years. It turns out you already dated somebody else!” Huang Tianliang said while exaggeratingly rub his chest, “Oh, it breaks my China’s (the porcelain) heart!”
“You go to hell! Less indecent talk in front of me!” Su Ji rolled her eyes, then secretly says in Qin Chao’s ear, “Don’t believe what he said, he’s gay.”
“Su Ji, what are you whispering about?” Huang Tianliang became curious, could not help but move closer and ask.
“It’s nothing!” Su Ji waves her hand. Qin Chao was little afraid and moves back a bit, thinking, ‘Holy crap! This man’s taste is actually similar to Chen Yingyang. Perhaps I could play a matchmaker for the two of them.’
“Enough chit-chat, I’ll leave the two of you alone.” This attorney Huang looked at his branded watch, and said, “I have a case that I need to handle soon. Next time if you have time, I’ll invite both of you to dinner, hehe!”
Then he walked over to the parking lot and drove away with his gorgeous Porsche 911.
“Wow, Porsche….” Qin Chao looked at the other people’s car and then at his lucky old bike, “the gap is too big.”
“This schoolmate of mine, although his sexual orientation is quite peculiar, his litigation skill level is quite excellent. Earning one million for a litigation case is a pocket change for him.” Su Ji patted the back of the bicycle seat, and said, “Don’t envy him. Today this sister helps you get over your shock. Sit, I’ll give you a ride. I’ll make persimmon scrambled eggs for you to eat, once we arrive home.”
“Good, a hearty dish.” Qin Chao doesn’t mince words, he directly sat on the bike’s rear seat and shed crocodile tears on Su Ji’s shoulder.
“Hold tight, I’ll ride this bike faster!” Su Ji turned her head and quickly rolled her eyes at this hypocrite.
Qin Chao coughed twice, then put his hands down and rested them on Su Ji’s soft back. Flexible and boneless. These are the result of Qin Chao’s appraisal.
“You, stop fumbling!” Su Ji twists her waist a little and unnaturally said, “I’m ticklish!”
“Ok! Ok! I know…” Qin Chao chuckled twice then grabbed Su Ji’s waist “ready, go!”
“Ok, today you’ll see my driving skill, we don’t compete with Cayenne anymore. You see that Lamborghini? I’m going to play with it!”
“You better kill me…”
“Hmph-hmph, stop complaining, off we go!”
