It should be the world that killed them!

Of course, he could exploit the rules to kill the others, but after Gu Ran died they would know there was something off about room 8002.
As long as more than two people died, he would know the issue as soon as he received the phone call from his future self.
But the problem was, when he received the phone call, ‘he’ clearly told him that everyone was dead.
This implied that the day after Gu Ran died, they directly experienced a TPK.

Anyone who experienced many mission worlds would know that the cruelest mission worlds also leave you a ray of hope.
For example, the veteran he knew from reality who entered the certain-death world.
Even in that world, under the protection of the rules, a person could still leave alive. 

What circumstances could lead to everyone dying together?

Unfortunately, he couldn’t get the answer now.
Even if he received another phone call from tomorrow, the contents would only follow the future after today’s changes.

Li Yan shook his head.
There were too many doubts in his heart, but now wasn’t the time to think about these things.
The most important thing was to leave this mission world as soon as possible.
He was nervous that Gu Ran would have another emergency.
If he died, they’d all be buried next to him.

He said, “We should go confirm your analysis.
Let’s have two… no, one is good, one person go in, and the other people will close the door.” 

“Of course, we’ll immediately open the door again after shutting it!” Li Yan decided.

Aside from Si Yu and Gu Xizhou, everyone else turned a little pale, and their eyes held a glimmer of fear.
They saw Gu Xizhou’s appearance after being saved, and to let them personally experience it, this…


Shen Bo said hesitantly, “This, isn’t this too risky?”

Li Yan shook his head.
“We have to verify it.
There’s definitely something wrong with this room.
We should split into two groups: one group will stealthily ask about what happened in that room in the past, and the other group will go upstairs and check out the situation!” 

Gu Xizhou felt that Li Yan’s plan was very reasonable.
Even though this person was a pervert, his basic nature wasn’t bad, and he was also clear-headed at crucial moments.

Li Yan pondered, “Let’s do this, ba.
Gu Ran, you rest for the time being.
Si Yaoxing, you take Xiao Tang and Xiao Ran to ask about the room.
Fang Yuan, Shen Bo, and I will go upstairs to investigate the room.”

Li Yan’s main purpose was to look after the two girls, so he arranged it this way, but Shen Bo disagreed.
His body shook and his face was pale as he said, “Li Yan, I know you want to take care of the two girls, b-but I’m really scared.
I can’t…”

“And who’s going to go in, huh? Is it you?” asked Shen Bo. 

Li Yan was stunned by his words and said, “Of course it’s you or Fang Yuan who will go in.
If I go in and die immediately, then there won’t be any phone call, and we won’t be able to change the future!”

Shen Bo wanted to refute this, but Si Yu intervened and said to him, “We’ll swap.
You take those two.”

Shen Bo was overjoyed and kept saying, “Good, ah! Thank you!”

Off to the side, Tang Xiaoshi despaired a bit, and Fu Yiran heaved a sigh of relief. 

After arranging their missions… Everyone split up into two groups.
Gu Xizhou looked at Si Yu and Fang Zhi, both of which were going with Li Yan.
That meant one of them would have to enter the room alone.
He couldn’t help but frown and say to them, “Close the door for three seconds at most, then immediately open it.
There’s a fixed time it takes to freeze to death, but I predict that it isn’t very long.”

Li Yan said, “Right.
The time between when I received a phone call to go up stairs and when Gu Ran went in isn’t very clear.
I predict that this time was…”

“What time did you receive the phone call?” asked Si Yu, raising his eyebrows slightly.

Li Yan fished out his PHS phone and opened the call record.
The call time was 12:11:24-12:11:27.
It was only a brief three seconds.
Si Yu glanced at Li Yan with a raised eyebrow and said, “It seems that today’s you was in a big hurry to make that phone call.” 

“En… After all, a teammate was in peril.
Isn’t it normal to be in a hurry?” For some reason, the expression in Si Yu’s eyes spooked him, and his explanation was very quiet.

Fang Zhi looked at Li Yan meaningfully and didn’t say much.
Li Yan’s lie was so clumsy that even he could catch it.

According to Li Yan’s words, when he made the phone call, Gu Ge was dead, but so was Tang Jiajia.
Why would Li Yan risk his life to save Gu Ge and not choose to rescue Tang Jiajia? There was definitely something they didn’t know about, but it seemed like Li Yan didn’t want to speak up.

Si Yu didn’t say anything more about it.
He just glanced at Li Yan and said, “Go on, let’s go upstairs.” 

Shen Bo took a deep breath.
He was so unlucky.
The first day, Liang Ke, who he shared a room with, had an accident.
The next day, that female ghost came to find him.
He didn’t know what kind of terrible fortune he had.
The worst thing was that there was a gorgeous young lady on their team, but every time she watched him lose face!

“Xiao Ran, aren’t you afraid to walk in the back?” asked Shen Bo, watching the woman with dew-bright eyes.


Fu Yiran nodded faintly and grabbed the hem of the jacket with red eyes without speaking.

“Don’t worry, we can get out safe and sound!” Fu Yiran looked really miserable and quite pitiable.
Delicate weakness always aroused people’s desire to protect, and Tang Xiaoshi’s heart also couldn’t help but shake.
She remembered her own fright last night and patted Fu Yiran’s shoulder, speaking quiet words of comfort. 

“En.” Fu Yiran’s head drooped, hiding any emotion.

They found people to ask one after another, but they didn’t discover anything useful.
Shen Bo and Tang Xiaoshi were a little dejected.
This mission was a lot simpler than verifying the room’s rule, and they’d feel guilty if they returned without achieving anything.

When it was time for lunch, Gu Xizhou finally saw the six people return.

“It’s confirmed.
After the door closes in that room, the things you talked about happen, but the time it takes someone to freeze to death can’t be verified.” said Si Yu. 

Hearing that Si Yu’s side had already made progress, Shen Bo spoke with a little embarrassment.
“We found many people, but none of them knew anything about what happened in room 8002.”

“Ai, I knew it would be like this.
Our guess should be that someone froze to death in that room, but who? And what do they want?” sighed Li Yan.
He was asking himself just as much as anyone else.
If they didn’t know the other person’s identity, then they couldn’t grant their wish.

“The person in the room might be the first owner of the hotel, an old man,” said Gu Xizhou thoughtfully.
“I remember that day there was a waiter who told Si Yu and me that the old man died accidentally.
He might have frozen to death.”

“Accidentally?” Li Yan repeated.
He said, “I’m afraid that it wasn’t an accident, but it’s best to confirm it first.
Do you still remember what that waiter looks like?” 

Gu Xizhou remembered, “Short hair, square face, very small eyes, approximately 1.7 to 1.72 meters, wearing size 42 to 43 shoes.
Oh, he was wearing leather shoes.”

Li Yan’s eyes widened, and he looked at Gu Xizhou in shock.
Why did he think this description was a little strange? Even if you could guess a person’s height, how could you know a person’s shoe size?

After their meal, everyone decided to try to find the waiter who might know the inside story before tonight.
They split into three groups: Gu Xizhou and Si Yu; Fang Zhi and Shen Bo; and Li Yan, Tang Xiaoshi, and Fu Yiran.

Everyone split up, and after two hours—— 

Li Yan took out a cigarette helplessly.
They couldn’t find that waiter at all.
It was just like he vanished off the face of the earth!

Even though he said that, at the very least they learned one thing.
The tour guide killed his wife, and the tour group that went missing before that should have also been his handiwork.
After they killed this tour guide, who could say whether or not they’d be able to leave this world directly?

They all knew it wasn’t a requirement to find the root cause! Only, how could they kill the tour guide?

Li Yan ignited his lighter, sighing deeply.
He’d really never killed an NPC, but couldn’t he always just take a knife and give the tour guide a stab? 

While he was letting his thoughts run wild, he heard a voice, melodious as a skylark, soft and light, speak, “Why don’t we split up to look for people to ask? It’s not very efficient if we stick together.”

Tang Xiaoshi was a little surprised, and her face showed her internal struggle, but soon she said, “I agree.
Anyway, as long as it’s daytime when we go up to the 8th floor, it won’t be too dangerous.
Splitting up is also fine.”


Li Yan hesitated for a moment, scowling.
“Can you two do it?”

Seeing that the two girls had both decided to split up, Li Yan didn’t prevent them.
Since he hadn’t received a phone call, this plan shouldn’t cause any problems.
Li Yan nodded and said, “Ok, be careful.” 

After half an hour, they’d completely turned over floors 1-7, but they hadn’t found any trace of the waiter.
Li Yan frowned, watching as the elevator doors opened and a man exited.
Then, he was shocked.
If he wasn’t on the first seven floors, could the waiter be on the 8th floor?

As if demons and gods were at work, Li Yan entered the elevator and pressed the button for the 8th floor.


This is wrong.
He pressed the button for the 8th floor, so why is the elevator stopped motionless at the 4th floor? 

Li Yan pressed the close door button and once again pressed the button for the 8th floor.
The elevator doors closed and then immediately opened again.

“Fuck, what’s going on?” Just when he was getting irritable, he suddenly noticed a lone figure in the hallway.
He was surprised.
“Yi, Xiao Ran, what a coincidence.
You’re also on the 4th floor.”

“I was just about to take the elevator back to the third floor.
I just found that waiter you were talking about!”

Li Yan was pleasantly surprised.
“What? You found him? Where is he?” 

“He just left…” Fu Yiran said helplessly.
“But he told me room 8002 was where the hotel’s first owner had an accident.
That day, after it snowed, the hotel short-circuited.
There was no heat in the room, and I heard that the window, which was old and in need of repair, was blown in by the snow.
The snow chilled the room and paralzyed the old man’s body.
No one discovered anything wrong, and he was slowly frozen to death while he was still alive.”

The author has something to say:

Fang Zhi: I feel like Gu Ge and Si Ge are hiding something from me… I’m a little anxious.
They won’t abandon me, right?
