Gong Jie looked up at the familiar sound of hurried footsteps. Alice walked up to him briskly and as she approached, she noticed the few of them sitting at the door of the ward. She peered through the window and was stunned to see Yun Shishi lying on the bed.
Gong Jie and Mu Yazhe exchanged a glance, each assuming that the other had summoned her.
“Did you call her?” was Mu Yazhe’s first reaction.
Gong Jie looked stunned. He had thought that Mu Yazhe summoned her.
“Stop guessing, all of you.” Alice explained, “When I noticed that Hua Jin and you weren’t home and had left Natalia alone for so long, I guessed that something must have gone wrong. That’s why I called to ask. As expected… So what’s going on?”
Gong Jie and Mu Yazhe exchanged a glance. Obviously, with Gong Fan sitting there, it was a little awkward.
Alice was a shrewd woman. Seeing that everyone was silent, she guessed that this matter had something to do with Gong Fan. She initially did not pursue the questioning, but finally it was Gong Fan who said calmly, “I recall that there are surveillance cameras in the room. How about retrieving the footage?”
There were no surveillance cameras in most wards. But the VIP suite was monitored closely with the exception of the bathroom. Two monitors were also installed directly opposite the bed.
Generally, when patients needed to be dressed or were in a situation where their bodies would be exposed, there was a privacy curtain around the bed that could be drawn.
Gong Fan’s suggestion to look at the surveillance footage caught everyone off guard. It hadn’t even occurred to Gong Jie to check the surveillance footage.In fact, most people did not notice the surveillance cameras in the ward. However, Gong Fan noticed them.
It was not difficult to obtain access to the surveillance video. With just a phone call from Mu Yazhe, the hospital sent someone to usher them into the surveillance center.
Little Yichen was still in an agitated state. Hence, Mu Yazhe instructed him to watch over Yun Shishi while the rest of them went to the surveillance center. They retrieved the video records, zoomed into the time frame, and started watching the footage.
The incident took place in the afternoon. At the time of the incident, Yun Shishi was sitting by the bed paring an apple. Halfway through, she realized that Gong Fan had woken up. She immediately placed the half-pared apple and fruit knife aside and leaned towards the boy.
The video only provided a visual element and there was no audio recording. Hence it was unknown what Yun Shishi had said to Gong Fan at that time. In the captured image, half of Gong Fan’s face was obscured by Yun Shishi’s body. However, from this angle, it was observable that the boy’s expression was turning colder.
He suddenly looked at the apple on the nightstand.
She caught his gaze, too, and immediately smiled, her mouth moving. It didn’t take a genius to figure out that she must have thought Gong Fan wanted some of the apple, so she probably said she’d cut it for him.
Gong Fan did not respond but sat stiffly on the bed.
Yun Shishi picked up the apple and continued to pare it. When she was done, Gong Fan suddenly reached out, not to take the fruit, but to snatch the fruit knife from her.
Yun Shishi’s expression changed. She didn’t even have time to get onto her feet before Gong Fan made a move. He raised the fruit knife once, and plunged it forcefully into her abdomen.
The attack was so sudden that Alice couldn’t help taking a deep breath. Beside her, Gong Fan’s expression darkened and he started to tremble.
