"Okay, don’t wander around too much during this time."
"Will Zhou Xiao be okay?"
"He’ll be okay, don't worry." Chen Shi promised. After all, The Silent Man was originally going after the director. What Zhou Xiao did couldn’t be considered as aiding and abetting. It only constituted as sheltering and assisting a criminal. Furthermore, he had a mental illness, so it shouldn’t lead to jail time.
When he came back, Lin Dongxue sighed. "I really had my eyes opened today. I didn't think such a dark place existed in the world."
"What did you talk to her about when you went back?"
"I'll tell you later."
When they went downstairs, they actually ran into Zhou Xiao. With a cigarette in his hand, Zhou Xiao smiled and said, "You’re here to investigate the case again? How diligent."
Chen Shi glanced at the cigarette in his hand and asked, "Are you here to find Wang Ying?"
"No, I worked for a whole day, so I’m just here to relax and have a meal. Do you want to eat together?"
Chen Shi deliberately said, "Let’s go and eat at the Jiugongge we ate at last time, okay?"
"Jiugongge? When did we eat Jiugongge?" Zhou Xiao looked confused.
Chen Shi was testing him because he noticed that Zhou Xiao’s cigarette was different from the ones he had seen on his desk before. Smokers generally wouldn’t change their brands so casually. He suspected that Zhou Xiao’s personality at the moment was that of the other one.

This time, Zhou Xiao invited them to go to a nearby shop selling hot plated beef rice and talked about the mental hospital. Zhou Xiao said, "I just took medicine all day long. I refused at first. Later, they threatened me. I didn’t dare to resist anymore and took the medicine obediently."
It was completely different from what Wang Ying said. Chen Shi asked, "Your personality split started from back then. When you were there, your other personality took the lead."
Zhou Xiao bit his finger. "Probably! I’ve suffered periodic memory loss since then. Sometimes when something unreasonable happened in the hospital, I’d get very agitated and lose consciousness. In the next moment, I’d find myself laying on the bed. Sometimes, I’d have injuries on my body, and sometimes I would find myself in a dark and narrow confinement room. I tried to recall things, but after trying to remember, I couldn’t actually make sense of it all. Actually, I thought about the matter of a dual personality, but I was afraid to talk about it. I was worried I’d never get out of there if I did.”
"Don't your family come to see you?"
"See me?" Zhou Xiao smiled bitterly. "Every time I call, th
