But that was obviously impossible, because they’d now reached a bottleneck.
In any case, there should be a way for people to escape this ghost talk.
Otherwise, wouldn’t it be better to just kill them all in the beginning?

Suddenly, Su Rong’s brain flashed.
“Employee? I know!”

“What did you think of?” Wang Jianguo asked hurriedly, his spirit lifted.

Su Rong showed a rare smile and walked impatiently toward the front.
“The cash registers! On the chair where I found the first rules, there was an employee uniform!”

Wang Jianguo, who followed her, suddenly understood her intention.
“You mean, if we wear the employee uniform, we can enter the warehouse as employees?”

“That’s my guess.” Su Rong affirmed.
“Otherwise, there is no way.”

Although it didn’t sound that reliable, if nothing else the impossible had become possible.

When the two reached the checkout area, they saw the staff uniform on the chair.
It was an ordinary-looking red uniform.

Su Rong picked up the uniform and looked at it.
As if she suddenly thought of something, her eyes became dark.
“There is only one.
Who will wear it?”

“It’s okay.
Let’s go to the warehouse first.” Wang Jianguo said casually.
“We have to go through the clothing area first to reach the warehouse.
Do you remember the rules there?”

Su Rong recalled the incident after being reminded by him and quickly said, “There should be something wrong with the rules of the clothing area.”

“Why do you say that?”

“Do you remember Huang Tao? She became like that after she went to the clothing area.
With her timid character, she shouldn’t have violated any rules.
But something still went wrong.
From this, it can be concluded that the rules are wrong.”

Wang Jianguo nodded, convinced.
The reason Huang Tao had a problem was most likely because of the rule, [If you see a strange mannequin, you should close your eyes and pray for ten seconds.] There was an error in this rule.

But in case the situation arised again, what was the correct course of action?

After hesitating for a while, Wang Jianguo took the initiative to ask.
“Is it possible we need to do the direct opposite of the rules? That is, to run away as soon as we see the mannequin?”

The rule was misleading in itself, and some rules only needed to be followed in reverse.

Su Rong herself had no idea about this and nodded affirmatively after hearing the words.
“Maybe that’s the case.”

The two looked at each other and headed to the clothing area with the courage to lie down with death.

Neither of them had ever been to this place.
When they first saw the mannequins, they were almost taken aback.
They thought they encountered something strange as soon as they came here.
Wang Jianguo reacted first.
“The clothes on these models fit well, so there should be no problem.”

Su Rong breathed in relief, following him in and treading cautiously.
Walking between the tight rows of hangers, there was no noise except for the sound of footsteps.
Both of them were very fast, trying their best to make it through this area.

However, the strengthened “Him” couldn’t possibly grant them what they wished for.
In the blink of an eye, a mannequin with a very strange shape suddenly appeared at the end of the corridor.

It wore four pairs of short sleeves and black trousers with eight legs.  The eight legs formed a ring, as if tentacles would protrude from it at any moment.

It was clearly a pale, plastic dummy without facial features, but it gave the feeling of a real person standing there.

Seeing this mannequin, Su Rong’s eyes suddenly widened and she turned around, running away.
Wang Jianguo followed closely behind, the narrow corridor making it impossible to squeeze past the girl in front.

He only felt a warm breath coming from behind him inexplicably, as if something was following him.
Wang Jianguo began to wonder if their method was wrong, if they shouldn’t turn tail and run.
He wanted to stop and close his eyes in accordance with the rules, and he had an urge to see what was going on with the mannequin behind him.

Keenly aware that Wang Jianguo’s footsteps behind her began to slow down, Su Rong’s heart tightened and she spoke without turning her head.
“Brother Wang, are you okay?”

Wang Jianguo’s mind was pulled back by this sound, and he quickened his pace to catch up with her.
“I’m fine.
We’ll be out soon.”

The two ran wildly all the way and finally made it out of the clothing area.
Su Rong was out of breath and smiled wryly.
“The amount of exercise I’ve had today is more than the amount I’ve had in my entire summer vacation.”

“Then you should exercise more.” Wang Jianguo chided.
He didn’t look tired as he gazed at the closed iron warehouse doors in front of him.
“This is the warehouse.”

Su Rong slowly took out the employee uniform and handed it to Wang Jianguo.
She frowned, her eyes fixed on the uniform as she clenched her teeth, as if experiencing some sort of violent psychological struggle.

Wang Jianguo reached out to pick up the uniform.
At the same time, he asked with concern, “What’s wrong?”

When he was about to touch the clothes, Su Rong retracted her outstretched hands together with the uniform with a “swish,” and breathed a long sigh of relief.
“There’s something I need to tell you in advance.”


“……If you put on this uniform, there is a possibility that you may never be able to leave again.”
