why should I apologize, we all know what the legend of the snowman is! She suddenly made a snowman, I was scared and opened her hand.
What’s wrong with that?” Tang Jiajia cried, feeling wronged.

“Don’t say anymore, Jiajia Jie doesn’t mean that.
I know Jiajia Jie helped me speak for her.
It’s my fault.” Fu Yiran clenched his teeth, his lips flushing slightly, his eyes red just like a little rabbit’s.

They were both crying, but Fu Yiran’s lethality was obviously much higher than Tang Jiajia’s 

“Let me apologize to you…”

Li Yan seemed to have something else to say, but Fang Zhi interrupted him directly, “Li Ge, Xiao Ran said it’s not Tang Jiajia’s fault, why are you still being so stubborn.
Inside the mission world we’re all in the same boat together, that’s the most important, don’t you understand?”

Due to Fang Zhi’s words, Li Yan didn’t continue to speak.
He glared at Fang Zhi, obviously blaming him for saying too much.
Tang Jiajia gave Fang Zhi a grateful look.
It was then that Tang Xiaoshi pointed at something and said, “Behind that tree… there’s something there.”

Following Tang Xiaoshi’s finger, Gu Xizhou caught sight of a vague outline of something, the heavy snowfall obstructing most of his view.
Everyone hurriedly walked through the knee high snow.
The thing behind the tree turned out to be a snowman. 

When Gu Xizhou caught sight of the snowman, his brow furrowed slightly.
This snowman’s head wasn’t really directed at them, but rather leaned to the side.
Gu Xizhou took a step forward, following the snowman’s line of sight.
The snowman’s line of sight was actually looking at where they were just looking for the picture a moment ago.

Had the snowman been hiding here watching them?


“Look at the snowman’s scarf! That’s his scarf!” Shen Bo turned pale in fright, the scarf on the snowman was exactly the same as the one on his missing teammate!

Si Yu nodded slightly, “It’s Liang Ke’s.
I remember the scarf he wore had this black and white plaid pattern.” 

Liang Ke was their missing teammate.

“I-Is it Liang Ke?” Tang Jiajia jumped, her voice trembling.

Li Yan thought about it for a moment, “It should be.”

“He turned into a snowman!” 

“The legend… the legend is real.”

Everyone’s complexion was poor.
Their missing teammate really had turned into a snowman.
At the moment the only thing they could be sure of was that it was related to the picture.

“We have to find the painting quickly, ba.
Once we find it we can go back to the hotel.
I’m scared,” Tang Jiajia said, frightened, no longer able to stay angry.

“Okay, ba.
Let’s find the picture.” 

Everyone continued to help Tang Jiajia and Tang Xiaoshi look for the painting, but it was snowing harder and harder and they had shoveled everything without finding the picture.

Finally with no other alternative Li Yan said abruptly, “Forget it.
We won’t find it.
There are still three rooms with paintings.
You can switch rooms at night, ba.
We have to look for clues, we can’t waste anymore time here.”

Just before everyone left, Gu Xizhou glanced down at the already waist deep snow and said to Li Yan, “You go back first, I’m gonna go see if that snowman is still there.”

Li Yan gave Gu Xizhou a strange look and warned, “Pay attention to safety.” 

Naturally Si Yu went with Gu Xizhou, and the two walked over to the tree.

The snowman hadn’t been completely covered by the heavy snow; it seemed to have moved up a little.
Gu Xizhou furrowed his brows.
He noticed the snowman’s face was staring straight ahead now and was no longer facing the direction they had just been.

Gu Xizhou also noticed that there were clear indications that one of the branches that formed its hands had been snapped off.
Observing the snowman closely, he set about opening up the snowman directly.

“There’s only snow inside, there’s no corpse,” Gu Xizhou told Si Yu in a low voice. 

Si Yu took everything in and reached for Gu Xizhou, motioning for him to take his hand, “Let’s go, ba.
It’s snowing harder and harder.”

Gu Xizhou nodded and said, “En, okay.”


After the two people left, the snowman suddenly moved.
It scooped snow up from the ground and formed it into balls, stuffing it in the place Gu Xizhou had just dug out.
It seemed a little wronged.

Si Yu and Gu Xizhou hurried to the restaurant and found that the tour guide was already there.
When the tour guide saw them, he looked surprised, saying, “Where did you go? How did you get to the restaurant, ah?” 

Their tour guide and all six of their teammates were seated at a table with a big steaming wok in front of them.
Gu Xizhou glanced at the pot, it should be Shuan Yang Rou.
It was the perfect thing for this weather.

“We were walking around outside and saw a snowman.
It was very interesting.
I don’t know who made it,” Gu Xizhou told the tour guide, his eyes narrowing.

“Oh, come eat, ba,” the tour guide said, wiping his mouth, “I’m already full.
You go on.”

After the tour guide left, Gu Xizhou suddenly felt a chill at his back.
It seemed someone was looking at him.
He turned his head subconsciously to see the tour guide talking with the waiter.
They weren’t looking at him. 

Just now Gu Xizhou had deliberately said that to test the seemingly normal NPC, but the tour guide’s facial expression didn’t change.

Everyone sat around the table, chopsticks in hand, wolfing down food.
This could be because they skipped breakfast in favor of searching for the picture this morning.
Everyone’s stomachs growled with hunger making everyone immediately feel that the food was delicious.

“This is so good,” Li Yan said with a sigh as he wiped his mouth regretfully when he was done.

After dinner, everyone went around in groups of two asking questions about the situation in the hotel. 

“Xiao Ran, we’ll be in a group together, ba!” Li Yan said to Fu Yiran gently.

Gu Xizhou thought that Fu Yiran would continue relying on Fang Zhi like before, so he was surprised when he unexpectedly agreed to his offer.
“Thanks Li Ge, I’ll team up with you.
Please don’t hate me for being stupid.”

Li Yan said quickly, “How could I? Of course I won’t hate you!”

Li Yan’s heart was filled with joy thinking that he’d finally managed to curry favor with her and catch the goddess’s attention. 

Ultimately Fang Zhi and Shen Bo paired up with Tang Jiajia and Tang Xiaoshi respectively and Gu Xizhou formed a group with Si Yu.

After the other two left, Gu Xizhou asked Fang Zhi, “You brought the mirror, right?”

Fang Zhi lowered his voice so that Tang Jiajia wouldn’t overhear, “I have it!”

“Okay, pay attention to safety.
Don’t explore by yourself if you find anything.
Wait for everyone to discuss it first before going in,” Gu Xizhou reminded him. 

“I know,” Fang Zhi said, nodding.

Tang Xiaoshi and Fang Zhi were leaving when they were suddenly stopped by someone.
“Wait a second.”


Si Yu took a step forward with his long legs.
Being called by him, Tang Xiaoshi turned around in confusion.
She didn’t know why this handsome guy who didn’t talk much was calling to her.
“What’s up?”

“There’s something in your hat,” Si Yu said, pulling something from Tang Xiaoshi’s hat. 

Gu Xizhou was able to see clearly what was in Si Yu’s hand.
It was a piece of a twig no longer than a pinkie finger.
Gu Xizhou glanced at the marks on the broken twig.

Tang Xiaoshi felt her hat in surprise and said, “I don’t know how that got in there.”

“Maybe it fell in on accident, ba,” Gu Xizhou said casually.
After Tang Xiaoshi left, he continued talking to Si Yu, “It’s from the branch on that snowman.
It was what pushed Tang Xiaoshi, It wasn’t just her misconception.”

Clearly Si Yu had also discovered this problem and nodded.
After that the two prepared to leave to look for clues.
Just as Gu Xizhou was about to leave he suddenly caught sight of a familiar face. 

“Hold on, let’s ask the waiter.
I saw him chatting with the tour guide just now.” Gu Xizhou grabbed Si Yu, who was just about to leave, by the wrist, walking right over to the waiter.

Si Yu looked at his hand with an unreadable expression in his dark eyes as he followed Gu Xizhou, his thoughts inscrutable.

“Hello, I’m a tourist here.
I wanted to ask a few questions,” Gu Xizhou asked, finding the waiter.

The waiter smiled and said politely, “What do you want to know?” 

“Have you heard of the legend of the snowman?”

The waiter smiled weakly and said, “Of course, many tourists come to our hotel just to confirm this legend.”

“How long have you worked here, is the legend true?” Gu Xizhou asked.

“This…” the waiter glanced around and said quietly, “It really is.
Since the first tour group went missing, someone has gone missing from our hotel every year.
Not only that, but everytime someone goes missing a snowman will appear near the hotel.” 

“What happened before that tour group disappeared? Did something similar happen?” Gu Xizhou asked.

“If you look carefully, there was another time before the first tour group went missing…”

“The previous owner of this hotel was an old man.
When he died unexpectedly, it was inherited by his granddaughter.
Not long after his granddaughter inherited the hotel she went missing.
Someone said that they saw a snowman outside the hotel at that time… We don’t know if that’s true or false… Anyway, she went missing.”

Hearing this, Gu Xizhou raised his eyebrows slightly and asked, “Who owns the hotel now?” 

The old man was dead and his granddaughter was missing, but the hotel was still open so there must be a new owner.

Just as the waiter was about to answer, the three of them suddenly heard a cough from behind them.
Gu Xizhou turned around and saw the tour guide standing behind them.
Looking at them with a smile, he asked, “What are you talking about?”


“Nothing…I have work to do.
I’ll get back to work!”

After being interrupted by the tour guide, the waiter spoke in a panic and hurried off. 

Gu Xizhou watched the retreating waiter strangely and turned his head to look at the tour guide.
The waiter looked at the tour guide with the suspicion of a mouse seeing a cat.

“It’s been snowing heavily for a good several days now.
It seems you’ve paid your travel expenses in vain,” The tour guide said with a look of regret like he wasn’t worthy of Gu Xizhou and the others.

Si Yu said lightly, “It doesn’t matter if we can’t climb the mountain.
We are more interested in the legend of the snowman than climbing the mountain.”

The tour guide said disdainfully, “That legend is bogus.
Snowmen can’t eat people.
Those things can’t even move.” 

As they chatted, Gu Xizhou could tell from the tour guide’s words that he looked on the legend of the snowman with contempt.
He clearly didn’t believe that it was true.

But, just to disclose a little bit, everything Fu Yiran does is self-care
