Li Yan frowned and asked, “Are you sure nothing will go wrong?”
I left like that, and Gu Ran just… did that, and nothing went wrong,” confirmed tomorrow’s Li Yan on the phone.
Li Yan suddenly jumped: “Why did you hesitate?”
“You know what kind of person I am because we are one and the same.
I won’t risk my life.
As for the reason… you’ll know then.
Just don’t run when you see a female ghost.”
Li Yan: “Ah?”
Sitting in the hallway, the man scratched his head and glanced toward the room.
He happened to see Si Yu and Gu Xizhou come out from the bathroom.
Since he didn’t know who had the number plate, he motioned for Gu Xizhou to come over alone.
Gu Xizhou looked at Si Yu beside him and, seeing him nod, walked over to the doorway.
He looked at Li Yan.
“What do you want to say?”
After Gu Xizhou came over, Li Yan said in a low voice, “I just received tomorrow’s phone call.”
“Oh?” asked Gu Xizhou, eyeing Li Yan with interest.
“What did tomorrow’s you say?”
“He said you directly threw that tour guide into room 8002, and then the mission world door opened.” After Li Yan spoke, he watched Gu Xizhou’s expression.
Gu Xizhou was a little surprised.
En… that actually was his style when he went berserk.
But what happened before that to make him so violent?
Li Yan looked at Gu Xizhou and spoke in a voice that only he could hear.
“He also said that the 8th floor sign was on the 7th floor, so we couldn’t take the elevator up.”
Gu Xizhou said, “I know.”
“You know?” asked Li Yan, staring blankly.
“En… Si Yaoxing already has a theory about the floor number signs,” said Gu Xizhou.
In his heart, he said: Even before Si Yu analyzed it, he had already conveniently beaten it out of the ghost.
Poor President Si, he shouldn’t have been too desperate waiting to get out.
In any case, there had already been a lot of point deductions, so getting a little violent with an NPC wasn’t too bad.
Li Yan nodded.
It seemed that tomorrow’s him knew after listening to Si Yaoxing’s analysis.
We’re sorry for MTLers or people who like using reading mode, but our translations keep getting stolen by aggregators so we’re going to bring back the copy protection.
If you need to MTL please retype the gibberish parts.
The two called their teammates over.
When they heard that Li Yan knew how to leave, everyone was immediately filled with vigor.
Li Yan was smiling on the outside, but he saw everyone’s inner complaints.

Shen Bo frowned, saying skeptically, “This ghost can move the building?”
Li Yan’s mouth twitched.
“It’s not that the building moved, but someone took the 8th floor number sign and switched it with the 7th floor.”
“The floor number sign? What floor number sign?” Tang Xiaoshi looked at Li Yan in shock, not understanding what he meant.
Li Yan simply explained how the floor signs were switched.
His eyes swept over each and everyone present.
He lowered his voice a bit and said, “The 8th floor’s sign was taken by one of us.
I don’t know who, but I think they definitely have a secret purpose, like killing someone in our team.”
In response, Shen Bo’s eyelids suddenly jumped, and he gulped, hastily waving his arms as he said, “That’s none of my business! I don’t have the guts!”
“This doesn’t have anything to do with me, either.
If I learn anything, I’ll definitely tell you,” Tang Xiaoshi said immediately.
She was anxious that her teammates would misunderstand her.
Fang Zhi shook his head and said calmly, “I didn’t do it.”
Si Yu maintained his cold and detached manner, saying, “Didn’t.”
Gu Xizhou shook his head wordlessly.
Fu Yiran saw Li Yan and the others look over and spoke with a soft voice after biting the bottom lip, “I didn’t.” Fu Yiran’s head shook no.
Seeing that no one admitted it, Li Yan frowned, and his sight involuntarily fell on Gu Xizhou, wanting to ask about what to do next.
Gu Xizhou took a step forward, looking at Fu Yiran with a thin smile, and asked, “Did you take the number sign because you want to kill me?”
Fu Yiran looked like an injured little deer after hearing Gu Xizhou’s accusation.
Fu Yiran’s eyes reddened.
“Gu Ge, I don’t know what you’re saying…”
After saying that, the guy more beautiful than a woman burst into tears in front of him, crying pitifully with a face full of grievances.
“I know it was you.
Don’t pretend,” said Gu Xizhou, pressing his hand over Fu Yiran’s shoulder against the wall.
Fu Yiran sobbed in a low voice, apparently full of grievance, “Gu Ge, I know you don’t find me pleasing to the eye, but I really didn’t do it.
P-please don’t target me!”
Si Yu raised his eyebrows and said, “Put away your pitiful work.
I believe Gu Ran.”
“I believe Gu Ge!” Fang Zhi stood behind Gu Xizhou, making his position clear.
“I know Gu Ge, so I believe him.”
Shen Bo saw Fu Yiran crying so brokenly, and he looked at Gu Xizhou’s trio, calling their names.
“Gu Ran, everyone is under suspicion, and you’re speaking so unpleasantly.
Li Yan is also suspicious.
He said he received the phone call and that’s what was said, but who knows whether it’s true or not? What if the floor sign would have moved on its own?”
Fu Yiran looked at Shen Bo gratefully, immediately encouraging him.
He continued, “Everything needs to have evidence, right? If you doubt this little girl, that’s no problem, but shouldn’t you take out some evidence?”
Gu Xizhou was furious.
Evidence, it wasn’t like he could drag out the female ghost to let him see for himself, right?
Tang Xiaoshi saw Fu Yiran, who was also a ‘schoolgirl’, sobbing and hesitated before she spoke up, too.
“Gu Ran, Shen Bo is right.
We’re all under suspicion, but we can’t confirm a young girl like her did it.
A heavy thing like a conviction needs human and material evidence.
Anything that immediately convicts someone like that can’t be considered lawful.”
Fu Yiran wiped away tears sadly and thanked Tang Xiaoshi.
Then Fu Yiran said to Gu Xizhou, “Gu Ge, you arbitrarily accused me.
If you can take out evidence, it doesn’t matter, and I can confess, but if there’s no evidence, you must apologize to me.”
“Right, apologize!” Shen Bo looked like a belligerent rooster, puffing out his chest as he spoke.
“Apologize? Do you deserve it?” Gu Xizhou looked at Fu Yiran with a raised eyebrow.
Now Fu Yiran seemed determined to fight this battle to the bitter end.
Fu Yiran burst into tears, then said, wiping them with a bitter expression like a victim of fierce bullying, “H-how am I undeserving? If there is no evidence, then please apologize!”
“Evidence?” Gu Xizhou looked at him with a raised eyebrow.
“Good, I don’t have any evidence.
After all, you put the floor sign on the 7th floor.
But I have a witness.
You all wait here for a moment, wait and don’t scream and run away!”
At last, Gu Xizhou was angered by Fu Yiran.
You need evidence, ba? Okay, let the ghost come stand witness.
Even if it was a little strange, it wasn’t impossible.
Seeing him go inside the room, a few of them couldn’t help but follow Gu Xizhou.
“Gu Ran, where are you going to find a witness? It’s the middle of the night, and the NPCs are all asleep.”
“I don’t know, ah… who actually was it? It’s already so easy for something bad to happen in the mission worlds, and someone is still in here acting like a demon! Really!”
After Gu Xizhou entered the room, he pushed open the window and looked down at the crying female lust ghost.
He noticed that a snowman was beside it and frowned.
He yelled, “Hey! Lust ghost, you come over here.
I’m looking for you.”
“Why are you looking for me?” The female ghost’s cheeks bulged like a little goldfish, but it was a scary little goldfish with bloody tear tracks flowing from its eyes.
It felt very aggrieved.
Just now, it was in the same room with the man it liked, but before it stayed long, they were discovered, and it had no choice but to flee like a mistress caught in the act and secretly disappear outside.
Even its confession was interrupted!
So angry, oh! Really hateful, why couldn’t he pick another time to come in!
“Be a witness for me,” said Gu Xizhou.
The female lust ghost tilted its head and spoke in a silly manner, “But I’m not a person, I’m a ghost!”
Gu Xizhou held his forehead and said, “Then be a ghost witness for me!”
The female lust ghost smiled craftily.
“I can, but I have a condition!”
“En?” Gu Xizhou raised an eyebrow, and his anger had yet to dissipate.
The naive little lecher ghost floated over to Gu Xizhou outside the window and winked at him shyly, saying, “If you kiss me, I’ll be a ghost witness for you!”
The corners of Gu Xizhou’s mouth twitched.
Sure enough, its lecherous heart wasn’t dead.
Gu Xizhou pinched its neck and hissed from behind his clenched teeth, “You.
The little snowman outside saw Gu Xizhou pinching the female lust ghost’s neck and hurriedly chucked a snowball at him.
The little snowman was anxious and glared at Gu Xizhou!
The ghost whose throat was grabbed: qaq
Gu Xizhou looked down at the snowman disdainfully.
This snowman was a weak chicken that couldn’t even enter the hotel.
He asked the female lust ghost, “Do you still want me to kiss you?”
The fierce ghost shook its head: Dont, don’t dare.
After waiting for Gu Xizhou to let go——
It: “Wuwuwu, you invite this one to be a ghost witness, but when this one has a teeny little request, you refuse.”
Gu Xizhou: “You’ve still got so much nonsense? Need to be put in your place?”
It: “This one loves you!”
Gu Xizhou: “…Shut up!”
It: “I won’t!”
Gu Xizhou: “Lust ghost.”
It winked at Gu Xizhou: “This one only lusts for you!”
Gu Xizhou: “……” It’s a desperate pickup line.
Surrendering to Gu Xizhou’s violence, the female lust ghost seethingly entered Gu Xizhou’s room.
When it floated in, the people at the doorway looked at it in stupefaction.
They just heard, they heard, this female lust ghost say… this one loves you!
The female lust ghost brushed its hair behind its ear and looked just like an average young woman.
It wore what it believed to be a benevolent expression and waved to them.
