They only got here today because the car couldn’t fit so many people, so Gu Xizhou took the tour guide’s car and arrived a little later than the others.

“What are they here for?” Gu Xizhou asked in a low voice, pointing to the people with photography equipment.

The tour guide smiled and said, “Some tourists who’ve heard of the legend of the snowman, and they have come to photograph it.” 

Gu Xizhou and Si Yu looked at each other.
It was clear that they grasped the key point of the tour guide’s words.
“What’s the legend of the snowman?” Gu Xizhou asked off-handedly.

“Oh, it’s just a local legend.
If a snowman appears at the door of the hotel, a corresponding person from inside the hotel will go missing.
It’s said that these people are all eaten by the snowmen,” the tour guide explained casually, “Actually, the locals tell this old story to trick children.
Some children like to run out in the snow which makes it easy to have an accident, so the locals came up with this kind of story to fix it.”

“Is it just a legend?” Gu Xizhou questioned him closely.

The tour guide said mockingly, “Okay, ba.
It’s not just a legend.
I believe you’ve heard there was a small team traveling here before, and everyone disappeared.
When they did, several snowmen appeared at the door of the hotel.” 

“Several snowmen? Do you know the exact number?”  Si Yu asked, lowering his eyes.
It was unclear what he was thinking.

“I don’t know.
In fact, I suspect that the owner is playing tricks.
That small team probably just climbed the mountain and got caught in an avalanche or something, and after they disappeared, the owner made the snowmen deliberately in order to drum up business for the hotel and said that it was the legend of the snow-capped mountain,” the tour guide said with a smile, eyes curving slightly.


Gu Xizhou raised his eyebrows.
It was the first time he’d seen an NPC who wasn’t gloomy, and who spoke like an ordinary person.

After they finished lunch, they naturally had to arrange accommodations.
Without a word, the tour guide handed them room cards.
There were five in total.
Each room had two beds, and it was obvious that they had prepared a bed for each of them. 

After dismissing them, the man reminded them, “I have a room rented in the hotel long term; room 2001.
You can come to me if you need anything.”

“Unfortunately, the past few days the snow has been too deep to go out, but the hotel does have a hot spring.
You could go take a dip.
It’s not bad,” the man said before departing.

“Why is this NPC so surprisingly talkative?” Not only did Gu Xizhou think it was strange, but Li Yan did as well.
All the NPCs they had met before were all very aloof.
Even if they couldn’t kill you, they’d look at you like you were already dead.
He wasn’t used to meeting such a chatty NPC.

They went straight to their hotel rooms.
Gu Xizhou chose a room and used the room card to go in.
He took note of a picture hanging in the room.
Looking at it closely he could see that the picture had nine snowmen in it.
Each snowman had a different scarf and a few wore hats. 

“Nine?” Li Yan frowned.
The picture had nine snowmen, and their group had nine people.
This picture immediately made them feel uneasy.

“The clothes these snowmen are wearing match our outfits…” a female voice said, shuddering.

Hearing this, everyone looked more closely at the painting and found that each of the nine snowmen wore scarves and hats that were exactly the same as their own.

The remaining people went into the other four rooms and found that they all had similar pictures.
Li Yan furrowed his brows and went to take down the picture, considering whether he should leave it alone or throw it away. 

People argued for a while about whether to get rid of the picture or leave it.
People inevitably formed teams based on whether or not they could leave the painting alone.

Naturally, Gu Xizhou and the other three wouldn’t separate over the painting.
Fi Yiran was apparently determined to hold on to Fang Zhi, obviously wanting to stay in Fang Zhi’s room.
His look of “I’m so soft ah! I’m going to faint! Hold me!” filled Fang Zhi with hatred.

The four others chose rooms, and Gu Xizhou raised his eyebrows at Fu Yiran and said, “Why are you still pretending?”

Fu Yiran released his hold on Fang Zhi, looking embarrassed, “Gu Ge, I didn’t do anything.
I don’t know what you’re talking about.” 

Gu Xizhou no longer paid him any attention and turned to look at the picture on the wall.
He turned to Si Yu and said, “Should we leave the picture up or take it down?”

Si Yu glanced at him, but just as he was about to open his mouth to speak, he was interrupted by someone, “Leave it!”

The speaker was Fu Yiran still using his fake voice.

Gu Xizhou frowned at him and asked, “Why?” 

“These snowmen are wearing clothes like ours.
In other words, maybe they are us.
Could we be hurting ourselves?” Fu Yiran explained in a low voice.

Gu Xizhou furrowed his brow.
There was a different explanation.
They could be eaten by those snowmen.
Subconsciously, he looked to Si Yu for the answer.


Si Yu nodded to him, “Leave it up.”

“Are you sure?” Gu Xizhou felt a little conflicted since Fu Yiran had provoked him earlier.
It was obvious that he was a troublemaker. 

Si Yu nodded, “Trust me.”

“Okay, ba.”

Gu Xizhou nodded.
Actually he wasn’t worried about meeting any trouble.
If the snowmen really were eating people, he should be able to subdue them with force.
