The police officers rushed to subdue Zhang Min who looked as if he was going to punch the other boys next as well as help up the now bleeding manager.The man tried to threaten Zhang Min but his bleeding mouth and broken teeth prevented that.The officer looked at the captain who signalled that Zhang Min be dragged into another room.The officer immediately pushed at Zhang Min but he removed immovable.He realized his mistake the moment he punched the manager but the man's foul words had angered him no end.He tried pleading with the officer,"Sir.Please.My sister came here only for a karaoke night and not for all this.She doesn't even eat chocolates with a bit of alcohol then she cannot possibly take drugs.Someone is framing my sister.She is standing there with a knife pointed at the others.Please Sir.Please believe me."
Zhang Min's passionate speech was interrupted by a man's shout,"No..Miss please put down the knife and come here."Shi Ai had turned the knife towards her own neck when the officer had tried to approach her to take the knife.Like a wild animal who had been backed into a corner,she was vulnerable as well as wild.Shi Ai,in an adrenaline rush and under the effect of the drug knew only one thing-nobody should come near her.If they tried she would stab either them or herself.She was not going to let anyone rap* her.
Captain Doug had seen all sorts of things in his long career and was not some green officer.He understood the situation at a glance and instructed his officers to detain the five boys in this room itself and to call a female officer.The situation seemed to be pretty clear.They had drugged the girl but were obstructed because of the sudden arrival of the police.The girl's defensive stance was enough to testify who was lying.But they could not gather proof and the girl was in no state to testify.Also if she had any alcohol before that or had consumed any drugs in the past,then her testimony would not be valid at all.But before,Captain Doug could decide on a course of action,another problem stood before her.
Shi Ai was bleeding from the nose.And it was no small nose bleed,but more as if a she had popped a blood vessel.The captain and Zhang Min were both shocked at this while Shi Ai had no idea of this.Zhang Min tried to rush to Shi Ai but listening to his sudden footsteps,Shi Ai turned towards him and threatened,"Don't come near me."
Zhang Min was now worried beyond measure as he stood frozen in place.Shi Ai did not even sound like herself and he could see from the blankness of her eyes that she recognized no one.
Captain Doug used his two way radio and said in a grave tone,"Call an ambulance.Urgently."
He then turned to his officers and commanded, "Take these boys and make them tell you what they have given her.Also ask the others if she has been drinking or anything else?"
At this Zhang Min turned to the captain and said,"Sir.Please call my father.He can help.He is a doctor.Look I have told you that my sister does not drink but you won't believe me.You will have to believe once he is here."
Captain Doug looked at the young man who was scared for his sister but unable to do anything. Many siblings of addicts were always shocked when the truth came forward and found it hard to believe.He could see the girl mat not be an addict but what the boys were saying could also be true since she was the one who was high.
Just then,an officer came forward and showed him an empty injection in his gloved hands."Sir.We found this near the place where the girl is standing."
Captain Doug glanced down at the injection and said,"Check it."
He then turned to Zhang Minand asked,"What is your sister's name?Try to coax her to come here and drop the weapon.If she is an innocent victim,we do not wish to hurt her more than necessary.
By now,Shi Ai's white skirt was almost soaking red and her strength was depleting.But shenwas still leaning against the wall,even as she panted for breath.
Zhang Min hardened his heart and tried to softly approach Shi Ai who was staring at him as if he was a killer .Just then the Captain's two way radio cackled and a voice muttered,"Sir,the ambulance is here.And there is a Dr Zhang Shu who is insisting on coming inside."
Zhang Min heard this and rushed to the captain,"Sir,Pleas elder him come.He is my father."
Looking at the situation, Captain Doug agreed to let him up even though it was against protocol.
