The tour guide looked at his watch and said urgently, “I have something to do.
I can’t chat with you.”
The tour guide turned around and left.
Gu Xizhou frowned, looking at the man pensively.
“I feel like he deliberately interrupted what that waiter was saying to us.”
Si Yu nodded: “I think so, too.
When that waiter saw him just now, he was clearly nervous, like…”
“Like he was caught messing around by his boss at work.” Gu Xizhou added, “It seems like we should find a way to talk to a few waiters about what’s going on.
The mountain climbing team wasn’t the first to go missing.
The owner was.”
Once more, Gu Xizhou and Si Yu found a waiter to question, but this waiter clearly didn’t know much.
He didn’t even know about the two previous owners.
“In fact, even if you ask the others, they probably won’t say anything.
The snowman legend really did happen, but my boss hates people talking about it.
If he knew I told visitors about the legend, he could fire me,” said a waitress with a bitter expression, her face turning pale.
The snowman legend revitalized the restaurant, but the boss hates the legend?
Seeing that there was nothing more to ask about that, Gu Xizhou changed the subject.
“Is it only tourists who go missing? Do those of you who work here disappear, too?”
The waitress shook her head and replied, “No.”
“What does your boss look like?” asked Gu Xizhou.
Maybe there was nothing to conceal, since the waitress very simply described the other person’s appearance.
After waiting for her to finish speaking, Gu Xizhou let her leave.
Sure enough, it was more or less what they already suspected.
Their tour guide was the new boss, and the waitress’ description fit him perfectly.
The other end…
Two people, a man and a woman, walked through the second floor hallway.
The woman was very beautiful.
Her hair was loosely curled, mature and sexy, and her crow feather eyelashes quivered faintly.
She observed her surroundings as she walked.
The man walking beside her looked pretty good, but he was nothing compared to her.
He whispered to the woman, “Xiao Ran, don’t walk too quickly.
Seeing Fu Yiran turn around and look at him, Li Yan’s heart skipped a beat.
This young woman was indeed outrageously beautiful.
She was even more attractive than star actresses on TV.
After looking at her from up close, he was even more convinced.
Fu Yiran was probably the legendary ‘beauty beyond compare’.
Fu Yiran turned and looked at him with a sweet smile and spoke with a voice like a yellow oriole.
“Thank you, Li Ge, don’t worry.
I know this isn’t an ordinary world.
I saw it this morning, and I believe you.
I’ll be careful.”
“End, that’s good then.” Li Yan sighed, feeling a bit disappointed.
He originally thought this girl would be afraid and clutch onto his clothes, but in the end he still thought… too gorgeous.
Fu Yiran smiled at Li Yan and said, “Li Ge, do you dislike me?”
Li Yan looked at the soft and pretty-looking woman and asked, somewhat flabbergasted, “Why would you ask that?”
“I think they all don’t like me.”
Hearing Fu Yiran’s small voice and seeing her pitiful appearance, Li Yan shook his head.
“Of course not.”
“We’ve looked around, and it seems like there’s nothing here.
Li Ge, let’s go down, ba,” Fu Yiran proposed after a few hours.
“Okay.” Li Yan closely examined this floor, and there was really nothing to see.
This layer was already the top floor.
There was nothing built upwards, and the stairs only went down.
“Li Ge, I’m a little tired.
Let’s take the elevator down, okay?”
Li Yan was a little embarrassed.
Thinking about taking an elevator in a supernatural world sent shivers down his spine.
Wasn’t that courting death?
Seeing that Li Yan was unwilling, Fu Yiran started to act coquettishly and said, “Nevermind, it’s just that I’ve seen a lot of guests taking the elevator.
Is it not okay? I really don’t want to walk!”
Li Yan looked down and felt something in his pocket.
Seeing nothing happen, he clenched his teeth and agreed to Fu Yiran’s request.
Last night there were nine people.
The others all paired off to sleep, and only Li Yan was alone.
The reason he had the guts to be alone was all because of the thing in his pocket.
Li Yan thought to himself that he was really lucky.
He received a prop in the mission world that went against the natural order.
Only, he didn’t dare to leak the existence of this prop to others.
It was really OP.
“That… Okay, ba.” Li Yan looked at the goddess in front of him and couldn’t refuse.
Fu Yiran: “Then let’s go wait for the elevator quickly!”
The two people talked as they walked to the elevator.
Waiting for almost a minute, the elevator finally arrived.
Fu Yiran walked in immediately, beckoning to Li Yan outside.
“Li Ge, hurry up and come in.”
Li Yan “en”ed and carefully observed the interior of the elevator.
Because it was the top floor, there was no one else in the elevator, and there was nothing odd inside.
While pressing the elevator button, Fu Yiran hesitated with a frown and leaned onto Li Yan to whisper to him.
“Li Ge, look at the elevator.”
“What is it?” asked Li Yan, frowning.
“Look, there’s a number 8 here, that is, 8 floors.
But we were just on the top floor and the hallways had a sign hung up that said 7th floor.” Fu Yiran pointed at the button.

Li Yan said thoughtfully, “Maybe the elevator just has one more floor.”
“No, didn’t you say this is a supernatural world?” Fu Yiran smirked and winked at Li Yan.
Li Yan was surprised.
He took a deep breath and said, “You’re saying there’s another floor?”
Fu Yiran’s head shook no.
“Maybe, maybe not.
We can only experiment to find out.”
“This…” Li Yan reached out and wanted to grab the beautiful girl’s hand, but the other moved too quickly, directly pressing the number 8 button.
The elevator suddenly sank, then moved upward again.
“You’re hurting me.”
Hearing the sweet voice, Li Yan reacted.
He felt shivers down his back and didn’t know where this elevator trip would take them.
He subconsciously grabbed the thing in his pocket.
“The elevator’s going up.” The elevator audio sounded.
After a moment, the elevator doors opened with a ding.
Li Yan took a deep breath and looked out at the 8th floor.
The lights flickered in the hall, and it looked no different from the ones below.
Each room was also the same as the others.
The only difference was that there was no sound whatsoever here.
Usually, many tourists were coming and going.
“There really is another floor.
No wonder we couldn’t find any useful clues yesterday.”
Hearing that birdsong voice, Li Yan turned to look at the pleasantly surprised beauty, and he nodded slightly.
This floor was hidden, so it should be the crux of the mission world.
Li Yan sighed.
They stepped in and began to look for clues just like before.
The two people found——
“Listen, I hear something.” Fu Yiran’s eyes narrowed, stopping in place as if to carefully listen.
After hearing Fu Yiran, Li Yan also pricked his ears.
Li Yan heard an ear-piercing noise, like someone dragging their nails down a chalkboard.
It came from a room right in front of him.
Out of fear of the supernatural world, Li Yan wanted to go back no matter what to consult their teammates before continuing to explore.
He turned to look at the pale girl beside him and suggested, “Let’s go back first and come back with the rest! It’s too dangerous with just the two of us.”
Hearing Fu Yiran’s voice as tiny as a mosquito, Li Yan said in his heart: She must be too scared.
Just right, we’ll go back now and call the others to come up.
After Li Yan decided, he didn’t delay and took Fu Yiran downstairs to look for their teammates.
“You said you discovered this building has another floor?” Gu Xizhou looked at Li Yan, astonished.
He’d actually looked down on that lovestruck pervert… He didn’t expect him to still have some IQ.
Li Yan scratched his head and said, “We discovered it by chance when we were in the elevator.”
“You aren’t afraid of accidents…” Tang Jiajia looked shocked.
In these circumstances they rarely took elevators because ghosts could be waiting for you inside.
“Didn’t it all turn out fine in the end?” Li Yan said, smiling.
Shen Bo also thought it was strange and asked, “You went up using the stairs, so why did you come down in the elevator?”
Li Yan was forced to explain: “Xiao Ran said she was a little tired, so we took the elevator.
She noticed a button for the eighth floor which is how we discovered that floor.”
Tang Jiajia grinned and said, “Oh, so it was our sweet Xiao Ran Meimei who couldn’t walk anymore and discovered it.
You’re really lucky.”
Li Yan scowled.
“Tang Jiajia, can’t you speak properly? Everyone is working hard.
Is it necessary to speak so passive aggressively?”
Tang Jiajia swept her gaze at him, looking clueless.
“I was passive aggressive? I didn’t say anything.
Is it wrong to say you were lucky?”
Li Yan looked at Tang Jiajia with dark eyes.
Beside him, Fu Yiran’s lips pursed.
Fu Yiran looked very wronged and on the verge of tears.
Just when Gu Xizhou thought Tang Jiajia was going to spray Fu Yiran again, she unexpectedly walked over and placed her hand on Fu Yiran’s shoulder, saying softly, “Xiao Ran, don’t misunderstand.
I didn’t mean that.
It’s Li Yan who thought blindly.”
Fu Yiran who’d been about to weep, stifled the tears that had just fallen.
Li Yan was speechless.
Gu Xizhou was surprised.
This is probably a woman thing?
What kind of miracle medicine is Tang Jiajia taking? Her IQ suddenly shot right up.
Look, Fu Yiran was originally squeezing out tears and had to stiffly return them and could only show a smiling face.
“Jiajia Jie… I didn’t misunderstand.”
Tang Jiajia “en”ed, seeming to let out a sigh.
She said, “That’s good.”
Everyone was silent for a while.
On the way to the 8th floor, Gu Xizhou exchanged glances with Si Yu.
They seemed to understand the other’s meaning——
Gu Xizhou: It turns out this Fu Yiran can do more than just cry cry cry and wasn’t completely useless.
Si Yu: Useless… and can still pass through over ten worlds?
Gu Xizhou: You’re right.
Si Yu: Let’s go take a look first.
Everyone took the elevator straight to the 8th floor.
They had just gotten upstairs when they heard that sharp “Ci La” “Ci La” noise.
Hearing such a noise made everyone’s scalps go numb.
Gu Xizhou also felt his hair stand on end.
This strange kind of sound is torture for everyone’s spirits.
After walking for a while, they finally reached that room.
Gu Xizhou looked up at the room number, 8002.
The sound was coming from this room.
The sound of fingernails scraping came over and over.
Everyone looked at each other.
There would definitely be clues inside this room, but who would go in and what dangers they might face was a serious issue.
“The sound is coming from inside this room.” Shen Bo was a little frightened, and his voice shook.
His body was also faintly trembling.
Tang Jiajia looked at him and said, “Yeah yeah, we can all hear it.”
“Let’s look for clues in the other rooms first.
If we don’t find anything, we can gather again here.
Then we’ll all go in together!” proposed Li Yan.
This room looks very strange.
We shouldn’t just go in.
First let’s investigate the other rooms on this floor,” Shen Bo approved.
“Okay.” Everyone exchanged glances, clearly agreeing with Li Yan.
Gu Xizhou really wanted to just push open the door and see what ghost or demon was lurking, but when he thought of the many people around, he resisted.
They separated into four groups and split up, searching the rest of the rooms in under an hour.
“Did you find any clues?”
“No, those rooms are all empty.
There are no traces of any tourists living in them.”
Li Yan’s line of sight fell on Gu Xizhou and Si Yu.
Gu Xizhou shook his head and replied, “No.”
“Then we can only enter 8002…” Li Yan’s voice sank.
“We’ll go together.
Are you okay with that?”
Shen Bo spoke hesitantly, “The rooms on this floor aren’t very big.
We have so many people; it would be too crowded.”
Tang Xiaoshi, who hadn’t spoken much, looked sideways at Shen Bo.
“I think you’re scared.
Don’t want to go in?”
“I didn’t mean that!” Shen Bo explained guiltily.
He really was scared.
Yesterday, none of the other rooms had an accident, but his room did… His teammate Liang Ke disappeared.
Shen Bo’s forehead shone with sweat.
He wiped it off, then discovered that even in this weather, his back was soaked with cold sweat.
If we go inside, we go together.
If there’s really something inside, then it’s all up to fate!” Li Yan said.
Tang Xiaoshi nodded and said, “I think so too.
It’s best to go in together.
Your life is your life, not anyone else’s, right? If someone else doesn’t go in, I won’t go in!
Tang Jiajia: “I agree, too.
If we go inside, we go together!”
“Shen Bo, follow us inside, ba.
Those two girls both spoke up, so if you don’t agree, it won’t be good,” said Li Yan, patting Shen Bo’s shoulder.
“Okay… Let’s go.”
Being watched by everyone, Shen Bo didn’t want to refuse again, so he gritted his teeth and looked like he threw caution to the wind.
The group opened the door and entered at the same time.
The strange noise inside the room disappeared immediately.
“Look on the bed,” said Si Yu, pointing at the bed inside.
These hands… were really good looking, and the person was also good-looking.
Why is there water on the bed?”
When someone cried out right by her ear, Tang Xiaoshi finally tore her eyes away from Si Yu and looked at the bed in the room.
A bed covered in water caught her eyes.
To speak accurately, it wasn’t water, but water marks, half wet and half dry.
It completely passed through the upper edge of the pillow, but it didn’t spread outward.
Tang Xiaoshi spoke hesitantly, “Why do I feel like this is a person’s head?”
Tang Xiaoshi had just spoken when she saw their teammate Si Yaoxing step forward and directly open the bedsheets.
The sheet was also wet, and put together with the round shape on the pillow, it looked exactly like someone laying down.
But if someone was laying down on the bed, how would it get wet?
Gu Xizhou raised an eyebrow.
By this figure, it wasn’t hard to judge that the person laying here was about 1.5 or 1.6 meters tall.
They should be a man because their hair left water traces behind.
That meant the person inside was definitely not the female ghost that came to find him last night.
“Those wet areas look exactly like someone laying down flat, but what does it mean?” Even after thinking it over, Tang Jiajia remained baffled.
There was nothing dangerous after they came in, and her heart had also fallen back into her chest.
While everyone pondered over this issue, they suddenly heard a clatter.
Shen Bo jumped and turned around to prepare to run.
Then, he heard a voice say, very quietly, “I just accidentally stumbled.”
It was Fu Yiran who spoke, sounding very vexed.
He was holding the window for support over by the bed.
Seeing everyone looking at him, he smiled at Li Yan.
No need to say it… it looked good.
Gu Xizhou watched Li Yan return the smile with a blush.
He really wanted to remove Fu Yiran’s pants in front of him to let him take a look at the so-called “Fish Out A Bigger Pair Than You” and face reality.
He looked at Si Yu.
Very good, Si Yu didn’t even look at Fu Yiran.
He looked at Fang Zhi.
Not bad, the upright young man was completely immune to her charm.
Gu Xizhou was very satisfied with the attitudes of his two teammates.
After leaving the room, they still deliberated over this problem until they went to eat dinner.
“There’s definitely something off with that room.
Maybe we can’t see it during the day, and it has to be night?” Li Yan mulled it over for a long time before speaking over dinner.
“Wait until tonight to investigate.
We can’t continue being so passive,” said Si Yu quietly, raising his eyebrows.
Gu Xizhou sat on the bed and didn’t go to sleep.
Since their room had a broken bed, no more people joined them for the night.
Shen Bo and Li Yan had a room, and the two girls directly chose Fang Zhi’s room.
Fang Zhi looked very upright to most people, unlike those two perverts Shen Bo and Li Yan.
The two girls didn’t even have to think about it before choosing to room with Fang Zhi.
In the other room——
“Thank you, Fang Yuan.
If not for you, we wouldn’t know where to sleep tonight.” Tang Xiaoshi said sincerely.
Fang Zhi felt a little awkward.
Actually, he really didn’t want to share his room with the girls.
He always felt it was odd.
Tang Jiajia: “Fang Yuan, you’re blushing!”
“Wh-what?” Fang Zhi felt his face, stupefied.
“Ai, it’s too bad the bed in Si Ge and Gu Ge’s room broke.
Otherwise we could share with them,” sighed Tang Xiaoshi.
“You want to sleep in Gu Ge’s room?”
Tang Xiaoshi’s face reddened, and she nodded.
At that time, Fu Yiran, who was washing up in the bathroom, glanced over the situation in the room and looked at the time.
Fu Yiran tidied up, entered the room, and directly lay down on a bed to go to sleep.
“You’re going to sleep at this time? Didn’t we talk about going up to that room tonight at dinner?” asked Tang Xiaoshi.
Fu Yiran glanced at her and said, “I’ll sleep for a bit first and wait for you to call me when we go.
Today was too tiring, and I’m a little uncomfortable.”
“Oh.” The corners of Tang Xiaoshi’s lips twitched, but she didn’t say much.
The lights were dim, and there were only two people in the room looking at each other.
Gu Xizhou looked at Si Yu a little uneasily and asked, “Why are you staring at me?”
“If you’re not looking at me, how do you know I’m looking at you?” countered Si Yu.
His eyes bent as he stifled a smile, the corners of his mouth slightly raised.
Gu Xizhou: “Nonsense.
Oh, right, did you think of anything in the room on the eighth floor today?”
“Nothing for now,” Si Yu replied.
Then, something knocked on the window of their room.
Gu Xizhou and Si Yu simultaneously looked over at the drawn window curtains, hesitating over whether to pull them open.
The window was knocked on again.
“Dong dong dong.”
“Dong dong dong.”
Si Yu went over and grabbed the window curtains, protecting Gu Xizhou behind him.
Gu Xizhou who was blocked: ???
Their roles suddenly changed; he wasn’t used to it!
Swish, Si Yu directly opened the curtains.
To their surprise, the window was slammed with snowballs, one after another.
The sound just now was the snowballs hitting the glass.
The two men both stared.
Outside the window, the snowman with “Liang Ke’s” scarf, making snowballs and chucking them at their window.
The snowman was chubby, and its movements were still a little clumsy.
It looked like a naughty little brat in the snow with a scarf.
The snow dumplings pounded the glass one after another…
The corners of Gu Xizhou’s lips rose.
The ghosts of this world were really unconventional.
First, the female ghost groped him… after that, there was a snowman using snowballs to smash their window.
This world’s ghosts were really one of a kind.
It seems like there’s some light,” said Si Yu, frowning as he pointed outside where the snowman was standing.
