Seeing several male teammates running over to him, Fang Zhi immediately realized that they were targeting him because of the outrageously beautiful woman he was holding in his arms.
He subsciously stepped away, trying to stay out of the pretty girl’s reach, but she stuck to his body like a band-aid.
Next to him, Li Yan said earnestly, “Xiao Ran, you must be careful when it comes to certain people.
One might know a person’s face and never know their heart.”
Fang Zhi heard what he had to say and knew that his words carried a hidden meaning.
Fang Zhi furrowed his brows.
This person spoke too clearly, by pointing at the mulberry tree and cursing the locust tree Li Yan said that he was not a good person.
Who said he’s not a good person? Surely not the guy who’s going around ogling other families’ pretty young ladies… right?
If you replaced this girl with a different one, would you still be like this?
Gu Xizhou and Si Yu came over, Gu Xizhou raising his eyebrows and glancing at Fu Yiran before introducing himself.
Fang Zhi subconsciously ran over to Gu Xizhou’s side.
Gu Xizhou raised his eyes slightly, watching Fu Yiran grab on to the corner of Fang Zhi’s clothes forlornly and refusing to let go.
He was a pitiful sight to behold.
Gu Xizhou examined Fu Yiran closely without bothering to hide his gaze.
He immediately antagonized the three male teammates by saying flippantly, “Don’t you think it’s rude to stare at a girl like this?”
“Look, you’ve almost frightened Xiao Ran to tears,” Li Yan added.
When he finished speaking, the three men looked at Fu Yiran gently and began to console him quietly.
“If he takes off his pants and whips it out, it might be bigger than yours.
You must be bewitched,” Gu Xizhou said bluntly.

“I-impossible, ba…ai?” Li Yan said in a daze, staring at Fu Yiran’s little face for a long moment.
How did he have such a pretty face!

Fang Zhi pulled his hand from Fu Yiran’s grasp, but Fu Yiran was clearly unwilling to let go and grabbed his hand one more time.
The cross-dressing Dalao’s eyes began to fill with tears and turned into a spring of water, weeping in a way that evoked pity in the minds of the evil minded guys.
Gu Xizhou saw Fu Yiran crying and felt that this person was no good.
In fact, this person really was unbearable.
In the end he ignored Fu Yiran and counted the number of people gathered.
There were 9 people total: 7 males and 2 females.
Naturally, he counted Fu Yiran with the men.
Gu Xizhou didn’t talk to anyone else.
He turned to Si Yu and asked, “Are there any clues?”
“I was with the last group of people to come in,” Gu Xizhou added, wanting to clarify that he was the last person to arrive.
As he spoke he looked at Si Yu while unzipping his coat.
When he’d first arrived in the snow he thought it was a bit cold, but after standing inside for a while he instead began to feel rather warm.
Si Yu smiled faintly and said, “At present we know that this is a hotel and that we were tourists who were traveling nearby when suddenly the mountain was closed off by a snowstorm, and we were forced to seek shelter here.”
Gu Xizhou heard him and ‘en’ed.
Next to him Fang Zhi immediately relayed his experience, “As soon as I opened my eyes, I was here.”
Fu Yiran lowered his voice and said, “As soon as I woke up, I found myself here, alone.”
The other’s explained their situations as well which were more or less the same.
They all opened their eyes and found themselves already in the hotel and additionally they were all alone.
Hearing this, Gu Xizhou raised his eyebrows slightly.
When he opened his eyes, he was outside.
Gu Xizhou wanted to continue talking with the others but the NPC who had called to him outside called to them unexpectedly, “Ai, I’ve been searching for you for half a day.
You should hurry to the restaurant quickly.
There’s too many people today and there might not be enough food.”
“Okay,” Gu Xizhou nodded.
He left with the person, and his teammates caught up to his footsteps, heading straight for the restaurant.
That NPC smiled and said, “There’s nothing to be done.
The snow has sealed the mountain and we can only climb it in a few days.”
After they entered the restaurant, they discovered through conversation why they appeared on this snowy mountain.
As it turned out, Gu Xizhou wasn’t separated from the others.
On the contrary, the nine individuals were touring the snow capped mountain, and this man was their guide.
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.”
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.
