Chapter 166: Time to Call the Police
In just a little while, the living room became filled with people. Even Master and Madame Xiao had been woken up.
Madame Xiao looked at Ning Shu with displeasure written on her face. “What are you doing in the middle of the night? Are you trying to disturb the entire family?”
Ning Shu swept a cold glance at Madame Xiao, then kicked the woman on the ground. “This person tried to kill me. I’ve called the police.”
Ning Shu recognized this woman. She was the Xiao family’s cook.
When Master Xiao heard that Ning Shu had already called the police, he immediately said sternly, “What are you blowing up the matter for? And you even went as far as to call the police over such a small matter? Don’t you feel ashamed for letting the world know about your private matters? And aren’t you completely fine right now? Humph, you’re completely raising a fuss over nothing.”
Ning Shu: …
The heck was with that? If it weren’t for the fact that she had quick reflexes, she would have already been dead right now. These people were unbelievable.
Ning Shu discovered that this world was seriously twisted. There didn’t appear to be any awareness of the law at all. It was as if the male lead was all powerful and could deal with everything, and that something like the police didn’t exist. It seemed as if it was fine even if the male lead killed someone, people would just feel that the male lead was very cool.
Not long later, the sound of police sirens could be heard and the police soon arrived. The person leading asked, “Who was the one that called the police?”
Before Ning Shu could even speak, Master Xiao grumbled with disdain, “Bothering the citizens in the middle of the night!”
That sternness, that aloof manner ah. He acted as if he was so impressive. Ning Shu was speechless. No matter how amazing this Xiao family was, in the end they were nothing but businessmen. However, they still dared to act like they were the boss in front of the government? It was seriously unbelievable.
She finally understood where Xiao Yan’s idiotic personality came from. So it turned out to be an inheritance ah.
The police captain was taken aback by Master Xiao’s attitude for a moment, however, he was someone of the government so there was no way he would act humble towards others. He was already tired due to being called out of bed in the middle of the night, so now that Master Xiao treated him with this attitude, his expression became very displeased.
Ning Shu said, “I was the one that called the police. This person on the ground tried to murder me. This is the weapon she used.”
She then made a scared expression as she said to the captain, “I don’t know why she wanted to kill me.”
The captain didn’t question why the murderer in question seemed half-dead while the victim was completely fine and just said to his team members, “Cuff her.”
Two officers dragged the woman up from the ground and left. Their attitude irked Master Xiao. He gave a cold humph, then complained, “What kind of police are you? There’s no regulations in the way you handle things at all.”
In Master Xiao’s opinion, for better or for worse, the cook belonged to the Xiao family. The way these police were acting was showing a completely lack of respect for the Xiao family.
The captain paid no attention to Master Xiao and just said to Ning Shu, “You have to come with us as well to give a written statement.”
Ning Shu very cooperatively went with them to the police station to give a statement. Before she left, she hinted to the police that a cook wouldn’t have such guts and that there was definitely something behind it.
A lot more little things had to be taken care of, so it was already dawn by the time Ning Shu got out.
She turned back to glance at the police station.
Just like how fish were bound by their ponds, the nations were stronger than the citizens. All nations had some strong tools that they kept hidden from the world. In front of the nation, the Xiao family was just fart.
When Ning Shu got back to the Xiao family home, she was welcomed by Master Xiao’s disgust-filled look. He always acted so aloof and arrogant as if he held control over everyone’s fates.
For some reason, the Xiao family members always felt that they were a level better than everyone else. Who knew where this feeling of superiority came from? Could it be just due to the fact that Xiao Yan was the main character of this world?
Right after Ning Shu got back, Xiao Yan came back with the two little kids. There was a relaxed smile on Xiao Yan’s face.
Even the two little kids were smiling sweetly.
