That night, the two people were interrogated.

After Zheng Yuan was arrested, they found the chat records between the two on his phone.
Furthermore, there was a witness to the crime.
He Yunyun immediately confessed, and the case could be considered closed.



Gu Xizhou wondered whether to tell Liao Shuang why his Gege asked to switch with him that day.
In the end, he chose to keep silent.
The man was already dead.
There was no need to bring up more issues.

However, Gu Xizhou thought, without that pig teammate Zheng Yuan, He Yunyun might have really escaped her legal punishment and paid the money after three years. 

Gu Xizhou believed that with this woman’s IQ, she would absolutely never use 30,000 yuan at once.
Rather, she would use every means to slowly accumulate 30,000, so even they wouldn’t be able to verify it.


In this case, the most lamentable thing was this pair of brothers.
In order to escape death, the Gege asked to switch places, and the Didi impersonated him for his assets.
The Gege was selfish with no regard for others, and the Didi was no better.

After the case was solved, Gu Xizhou had just left the interrogation room when he saw Lao Guo from his squad smile at him and say, “Leader Gu, want to have a drink together tonight?”

“Okay, ah, the case is finally closed! We haven’t had a meal together in quite a while.
We might as well get one tonight.”


“Okay, this calls for some beer and barbecue.
It’s delicious.”

For the last few days, the squad members’ nerves had been stretched taut, but now they all wore smiles.
Their discussion was lively, with everyone talking at once about what they should eat.

Gu Xizhou subconsciously took out his phone and looked at the time.
It was already two in the morning.
Gu Xizhou rubbed his temples.
He was in a pretty good mood right now.
After all, the case was finally closed before he entered the next world.
Seeing everyone so happy, he found it hard to refuse and said, “Okay, the past few days have been tough.
It’s my treat.”


Originally, Gu Xizhou wanted to invite Jiji’s coworkers to their home, but looking at the time, Gu Xizhou chose to give up.
This time, eat outside and go back, ba. 

Not many restaurants were open at two in the morning.
Gu Xizhou followed his colleagues to walk to the nearest little night barbecue.

After he finished eating, Gu Xizhou sent home several of his colleagues who’d been drinking.
When Gu Xizhou returned, it was already four o’clock.
He didn’t drink, but he felt a little tired.

He stopped his car downstairs.
In the distance, he could see his living room, lit up.
He leisurely went upstairs and opened the door.

His family’s ghost should have been sitting by the door, because as soon as Gu Xizhou opened it, there was a chair directly facing him.
Gu Xizhou looked down at the chair.
There was nothing left to do for the case.
He simply shook the file in his hands and placed it on the cabinet by the door.
After that, he changed his shoes, said good night to Gu Ji Ji, dragged his weary body to wash up and go to sleep. 

That night, Gu Xizhou slept very well, waking up at dawn the next day.

After he woke up, he saw a photo album placed on his bedside.
Gu Xizhou frowned.
Ji Ji snuck into the room to peek at photos last night?

After eating breakfast, Gu Xizhou lay down at home.
Then, his phone rang.
Gu Xizhou’s heart was unsteady.
It wouldn’t be another dead body, right?

He picked up his phone and relaxed when he saw that it was a WeChat notification.
If there was a new case, the police department wouldn’t contact him via WeChat; they would call him directly.

Repair Shifu Qiu: Mr.
Gu, your car has been repaired.
You can come retrieve it at any time.

Gu Xizhou thanked him.

Gu Xizhou didn’t delay.
Taking advantage of his free time, today, he immediately took a taxi to pick up his car.
After he returned with it, Gu Xizhou wanted to return Si Yu’s car to him.
He pulled out his phone and sent a text to Si Yu: My car was repaired.
I’ll return your car to you in a few days. 

After a while, Gu Xizhou received a reply from Si Yu: Ok

Gu Xizhou: Thanks.

Relaxing at home with his eyes closed, Si Yu replied lazily: It’s nothing.
Just an old car, that’s all.

Gu Xizhou smiled when he said it like this, raising the corner of his mouth.
He replied: En, still, thank you.
I’ll take the car to you next time. 

Si Yu: Ok ^_^

Their chat finally stopped on Si Yu’s “ok”.
Gu Xizhou rubbed his forehead, mocking him in his heart: As it turns out, in President Si’s eyes a car less than a week old can only be classified as old.

On the first day he got the car, Gu Xizhou noticed there was a faint hint of cologne in the car.
However, he recalled that Si Yu didn’t use cologne, so when he took the car he conveniently asked the shop assistant.
On the same day his car was hit, someone bought the same model with the highest level of specifications.
This person truly possessed remarkable abilities.
They could get the vehicle registration on the same day they bought the car.

Gu Xizhou didn’t continue to pursue this line of thinking thoroughly.
Despite the fact that he’d already been keenly aware of the change earlier, in the end, there was still Ji Ji.
Dating and whatnot… it was better not to think about it for the time being. 

Two days later——

“Here, thanks,” Gu Xizhou said to Si Yu, putting the car keys on the table.

Si Yu nodded faintly, accepting the key.
The three of them spoke for a while, and then with the usual short dizziness, they entered the mission world.

Gu Xizhou held his breath.
In the next moment, a field of heavy snow appeared before his eyes.
The wind screamed loudly in his ears, piercing into the front of his clothes and bringing an icy chill. 

He knew that he’d entered the mission world, but Gu Xizhou never thought there could be a blizzard like this inside.
Importantly, in present-day Ningqing, it was hot enough to make people sweat.
The frigid cold abruptly replaced the heat and made Gu Xizhou shiver.

He was now in the midst of the ice and snow.
Fortunately, the mission world was still a little humane.
He wasn’t wearing short sleeves, but a thick knee-length down jacket.


After waiting a bit, Gu Xizhou adapted to the weather.
He stood outside, and several people behind him were removing things from a car.
One of them said to Gu Xizhou, “Hurry up, go into the hotel.
Don’t dilly-dally.
The snow is piling up more and more.”

“Okay.” Gu Xizhou looked at the man carefully.
This man clearly wasn’t Si Yu, and he also wasn’t Fang Zhi.
He was probably an NPC from this mission world. 

The biting cold from outside was dispelled in an instant once they entered the hotel.
Gu Xizhou had time now to size up the people who came in with him.
There were no less than one hundred people.
Gu Xizhou couldn’t help but be surprised.
There shouldn’t be so many people here.
Fang Zhi’s mission world couldn’t be that difficult.

He fell into thought as he looked around.
Then, he noticed a group of people gathered together who were obviously different from those carrying camera equipment.
These should be his teammates, and the ones with equipment ought to be NPCs.

Gu Xizhou had just taken a step when he suddenly caught sight of a beautiful face, the type whose beauty is nearly overwhelming.
Furthermore, her dark eyes seemed as if they could squeeze out water at any moment.
Combined with her lovely face, it simply forced people to feel distressed.

“I’m so scared…” 

“Where is this, ah?”

Then, Gu Xizhou watched the young woman lean against Fang Zhi, who was too slow to dodge.
He was directly bumped into by the other, and he simultaneously garnered the hatred of the other men.

Fang Zhi’s ears immediately turned red.
He hastily lowered his voice and explained to the trembling and frightened woman, “This is the mission world.
Don’t be afraid.
Look, is there a line of numbers that says 00:00:01 in your line of sight? This represents your life countdown.
All the people who enter the mission world are on the verge of an unexpected death…”

The young woman couldn’t stop crying.
She recalled, “I-I just heard the sound of a car horn.
Don’t tell me I, I’ll be run over by a car?” 

Fang Zhi nodded and said, “Don’t be afraid.
As long as you can successfully leave here, you won’t die.
Every time you complete a mission there is a corresponding time reward.”

The young woman wiped her tears, leaned against Fang Zhi’s chest, and sobbed, “Thank you for telling me this.
I’m so scared.”

“What are you looking at?”

A sonorous and familiar voice asked from behind him. 

Gu Xizhou turned around and saw Si Yu.
Si Yu smiled at him and turned his head to look at Fang Zhi.

When Si Yu saw that young woman clearly, he couldn’t help but raise his eyebrows.

Although her succubus-like face wasn’t similar to the fourth world, this woman bore a remarkable resemblance to Fu Yiran.

Gu Xizhou remembered that previously Fu Yiran had always urged him to tear away the newspaper and took a look at this young woman’s resemblance to Fu Yiran.
He felt a little uneasy. 

Gu Xizhou still remembered the note Fu Yiran gave him: ‘6 means life, 1 means death’.
Up until now, he still hadn’t used the note, and he’d always been curious about what it meant.
Of course, Fu Yiran could’ve just been messing with him.

Let alone that… Gu Xizhou really thought this womenswear addict could do such a thing just to tease him.


“I’m Li Yan,” said a confident man, reaching out his hand to Fang Zhi and the weeping young woman.

Fang Zhi shook hands with him and replied quietly, “Hello, I’m Fang Yuan.” 

Li Yan seemed very interested in the weeping woman, and this man’s appearance could be considered handsome.
He lowered his voice and reached out again.
“Hello, what’s your name?”

The young woman’s eyes were red, and she looked like a startled little rabbit.
She shrunk her head back and whispered, “I’m Fu Yiran.”

“Then I’ll call you Xiao Ran.
You’re a newbie so remember to look for reliable people to team up with.” Li Yan’s implication was self-evident.
“I’ve experienced eight mission worlds.
If you need help, you can ask me.” 

There were also several more men looking over, making it clear that they could carry Fu Yiran.

But Fu Yiran tenaciously held Fang Zhi’s sleeve, unwilling to let go, and shrank into his chest.
“Fang Ge, I’m scared.”

Fang Zhi looked around and found himself pinned by gazes that held obvious hatred in their eyes.
What a pain in the ass.
“…….” I’m also very scared.

However, when Gu Xizhou saw this scene, he couldn’t help but raise the corners of his mouth, silently rolling his eyes. 

Fu Yiran. Fu Yiran.

There was no need to think about it.
It was definitely him.
