He couldn’t explain the situation between him and Si Yu clearly in a short amount of time.
Gu Xizhou’s head couldn’t help but hurt.
His feelings towards Si Yu were complicated.
On the one hand he really needed Si Yu to take him into the mission world with him to avoid the death rules, but on the other he knew Si Yu was also special to him.
Gu Xizhou couldn’t help but remember waking up in the snowman world.
Si Yu’s flushed face was filled with exhaustion and worry.
Who could bear to see someone look at them with such an expression, ah!
The reason he asked Gu Ji Ji about ‘marriage’ and ‘love’ was because he knew that he was also interested.
Off to the side Xiang Yuan shook his head grabbing Gu Xizhou’s wrist as he changed the topic of conversation, “Come, come, come, drink with me.
I want to find you a partner soon.
I already have two children and you’re still a single dog.
“Don’t you want to experience the feeling of coming home to a meal everyday?”
Xiang Yuan was in a nagging mood and started going on and on.
There were twenty-five beer cups arranged on the table in five by five rows to form a square, and each one was filled with wine.
Xiang Yuan hiccuped and pointed to the table with the wine explaining, “Lao Gu, let’s roll the dice and compare our numbers!”
Xiang Yuan slapped Gu Xizhou on the shoulder with his bear paws.
“If you lose, you drink.
If you win, you don’t drink.
How about it?”
Gu Xizhou glanced at Xiang Yuan, standing with his hands shoved into his pockets, lips pursed into a thin line.
Now he really wanted to put this drunkard into a detention room and let Xiang Yuan sober up.
“You don’t dare, ba?” Xiang Yuan said with a smile.
“There’s no point.”
Xiang Yuan took out two dice.
He gave one to Gu Xizhou and kept one of them for himself.
“Come on, ba!”
The drunkard Xiang Yuan shook the dice.
When he lifted the cup and saw the numbers ‘3’ and ‘2’ he was greatly disappointed.
What if Team Leader Gu throws two ones?” Someone from the crowd said.
Gu Xizhou: “Pei, I have more points than Xiang Yuan.”
As he spoke, Gu Xizhou shook the dice.
After he revealed the dice he lifted his chin.
“How about ‘6’ and ‘6’? I’m not a black devil like Xiang Yuan!”
Xiang Yuan downed his wine cup and said, “go on!”
“‘5’ and ‘6’, I should definitely win this time, right? I don’t believe you can get another double ‘6’.” Xiang Yuan smiled in satisfaction when he lifted the cup and saw the numbers.
However when Gu Xizhou rolled the dice, everyone was stunned.
“Damn, Team Leader Gu has double sixes.
Xiang Ge, your luck is really bad, ah.”
“Hahahaha, Team Leader Gu is formidable!”
Even Gu Xizhou was stunned and hesitated.
Gu Xizhou closed his eyes slightly, and picked up the two dice on the table, throwing them out at random.
Gu Xizhou thought, watching the dice fall onto the table, double ‘6’!
Xiang Yuan stared at Gu Xizhou, utter confusion written across his face, and said, “Lao Gu, you’ve learned a skill.
You roll double sixes every time.
You really want to kill me today, don’t you?”
“Gu Xizhou: “…Aren’t you the one who pulled me to drink?”
“Forget it, forget it.
I won’t play with you.”
Xiang Yuan was making trouble, but it was boring.
Originally he just wanted to pull Gu Xizhou to drink, but it would be boring if he didn’t lose.
It was just like playing Mahjong.
If there are wins and loses, then everyone can play.
But if there’s one person who always wins and never loses, who would want to play with them?
Abandoned by everyone else, Gu Xizhou took a pair of dice over to a nearby table.
His brow knit slightly as he stared at the dice in a trance thinking: Was he thinking too much? The note Fu Yiran gave him said ‘6’ means life and ‘1’ means death.
It couldn’t be related to the dice, right?
Gu Xizhou rolled the dice.
As he watched them fall onto the tabletop, he was deeply shaken.
It was a double six again.
Gu Xizhou rolled the dice several times in quick succession before he suddenly stood up abruptly and said in a low voice, “I’m gonna go get some fresh air.”
Xiang Yuan waved his hand absentmindedly and teased, “Go, ba.
Just don’t leave.”
Ma Qi didn’t drink much and his companions didn’t dare to persuade him.
Ma Qi observed Gu Xizhou’s odd behavior and looked over at the table he’d been throwing the dice.
Both of the numbers facing up on the dice were sixes.
His lips curled and he got up to follow him out.
Leaving the noisy private box and walking down the hallway Gu Xizhou’s heart beat rapidly.
He had just sat off to the side by himself and rolled the dice several times and each time he’d rolled two sixes.
His adam’s apple bobbed and there was an indescribable sense of impatience and irritability in his heart.
Dice were numbered 1-6.
On a die there was a ‘6’ and a ‘1’.
Did “6 means life 1 means death” refer to the dice?
Gu Xizhou’s brain was full of questions.
For him…the good news was he’d rolled a ‘6’ not a ‘1’, and ‘life’ instead of ‘death’.
Gu Xizhou massaged his temples.
Usually he didn’t gamble.
He hardly ever touched dice.
If Xiang Yuan hadn’t pulled him along today, he would have gone home…
Dice, the note is about numbers on a die.
Rolling a ‘6’ meant life and rolling a ‘1’ meant death.
After following him out, Ma Qi saw Gu Xizhou hiding in the smoking area with his brows tightly knit.
He walked over unhurried, taking out a cigarette and lighting it as he did so.
He leaned against the wall and asked quietly, “I feel like somethings wrong with you, what’s going on?”
Gu Xizhou pinched his brows and hesitated before shaking his head and saying mildly, “It’s too stuffy inside, I came out to get some air.”
“Oh, that’s good.
I thought maybe you’d received some news that something had happened to one of your friends.” Ma Qi gave Gu Xizhou a small nod and put away his worried expression, saying, “It’s okay then.”
Ma Qi was about to walk away when Gu Xuzhou called out to him, “Ma Ge, wait a minute.
I want to ask for your help.”
“What?” Ma Qi asked, his footsteps coming to a halt as he cocked his head slightly, looking at Gu Xizhou.
“You used to be a narcotics officer and know a lot of powerful people.
I want to find someone.
There are several cases…” Gu Xizhou explained his theory to Ma Qi in detail.
Ma Qi shook his head, “You said you wanted to try and find someone, and I could help you, but people in the mission world can change their appearance and we also don’t know if this ‘Fu Yiran’ uses a real name or a fake one.
I’m not very optimistic.”
“As for whether or not the worlds correspond to real events, I can answer you directly.”
Gu Xizhou looked at Ma Qi a little perplexed, and asked, “You already researched it?”
Ma Qi nodded and ‘en’-ed, “I had the same idea you do, so I researched it.
The number of cases wasn’t significant.”
Hearing what Ma Qi said, Gu Xizhou felt a little disappointed and he nodded faintly.
He thanked him and took a deep breath before going back to the private room, however his brain was full of dice.
After drinking some wine, Gu Xizhou separated from the crowd and took a taxi home.
His cell phone buzzed.
Gu Xizhou dug it out and saw that he had six consecutive WeChat messages from Si Yu.
His heart was thrown into so much turmoil over the dice that he totally forgot to check his phone.
For a split second Gu Xizhou felt guilty.
He opened his phone.
These messages where clearly sent intermittently and not all at once——
Si Yu: I’ll treat you to dinner.
Su Yu: En?
Si Yu: Do you really only think of me when you have to enter the mission world????
One hour later——
Si Yu: ……
Si Yu: I take back what I said just now.
Don’t be angry.
Si Yu: Get back to me when you see this.
Waiting for you.
