til we enter the mission world?” 

“En…” Si Yu mumbled.
After a while he lowered his clear bright voice to whisper in Gu Xizhou’s ear, “There’s still half an hour.”

Gu Xizhou: !!!

“Why did you ask me to hold hands with you so early?” Gu Xizhou raised his eyebrows at him.

Si Yu: “Because I wanted to hold your hand.” 

Gu Xizhou: “…” Forget it, forget it.
I can’t stand it.
I’ll shut up, ba.
If President Si wanted to act coquettish it was none of his business.

Finally, after holding hands for half an hour, Gu Xizhou felt the familiar sensation of dizziness.
When he opened his eyes again he was sitting in a room on a sofa with Si Yu.


Gu Xizhou was certain that he had entered the task world because this was definitely not Si Yu’s mansion.
The decoration in the house was warm, but it was definitely not luxurious.
Gu Xizhou extracted his sweaty hand from Si Yu’s grip.

He got up to look around the room.
It was an apartment complex.
There wasn’t anyone in the bedroom and it was only Si Yu and him in the living room.
He stood by the living room window and looked out at the neighborhood.
The neighborhood outside was enveloped in thick black fog.
The neighborhood outside of the bedroom window however was bright as day.
It was clearly dusk, the hour of wolves and dogs. 

The entrances on all sides of the neighborhood were blocked by gates and three of the sides had buildings.
These buildings shielded a large area from sunlight making the interior of the community appear somewhat sinister.
The downstairs contained several crude awnings which at first glance appeared to violate building code.
In the middle of the community there was a bullet gray car, a black pedicab, as well as an electric car.

But there wasn’t a single person in the courtyard.

Gu Xizhou furrowed his brow, where were their other task world teammates?

Gu Xizhou went out into the dark corridor to have a look.
The upper right hand corner of the corridor was soaked with rain, growing yellow fuzz and black mold.
The dim lighting occasionally flickered.
If you wanted to play a horror game, this corridor would receive full marks.

“Where are the others?” Gu Xizhou’s brows creased slightly.

Si Yu grabbed Gu Xizhou by the arm, preventing him from going out, warning him, “Let’s try to find clues in the apartment first.
Don’t go out for the time being.
We still don’t know the situation.
You listen to me.”

Hearing Si Yu’s words, Gu Xizhou nodded.
He had to admit that while in the task world it was better to listen to Si Yu obediently.
He followed Si Yu to try and find anything.

Si Yu picked up two train tickets from the coffee table and handed them to Gu Xizhou.
He whispered, “It’s a ticket for March 5th at 3 in the afternoon.
We should be playing the role of two people who are moving away on the 5th of March.” 

“What’s today?” Gu Xizhou raised his eyebrows and asked.

“There’s a calendar hanging behind the door.
Today should be February the 24th.
All of the other pages in front of it have been torn out,” Si Yu took the calendar from the wall and put it on the table.

Sitting on the table was an old-fashioned calendar.
It was very thick and it was the kind of calendar where each day was torn out.
You wouldn’t be able to find this kind of calendar in the city and could only be bought in rural areas.

“The time limit is from now until March 5th at 3 pm,” Si Yu said. 

Gu Xizhou nodded lightly, “It’s the 24th, that’s almost 10 days.
The time limit is really long.”

“It is really long,” Si Yu’s brow furrowed slightly as he lowered his voice to say, “I have never encountered such a long time limit before.”

“En, let’s look again and see if there are any other clues,” Gu Xizhou said unconcerned.
The two of them searched through the room, not even underneath the bed went unsearched.
But there wasn’t anything strange under the bed, the wardrobe, the cupboard, the TV stand, or anywhere else.
They found nothing.

Finally, Gu Xizhou walked into the kitchen.
The inside of the kitchen was tidy and neat, and then he opened the refrigerator. 

Oh, no head, no broken hands or feet.
Nothing fun.

Gu Xizhou looked coldly at the fresh food on the shelves.
There wasn’t anything in it whatsoever.


Gu Xizhou couldn’t help but frown.
Two hours had gone by quickly and their teammates had yet to appear.
Why didn’t even the NPC show up?

“There’s no one, how about we go out and take a look?” Gu Xizhou asked Si Yu, massaging the space between his eyebrows. 

Si Yu shook his head, patting the spot on the sofa next to him as he leaned back lazily, eyes slightly closed, “The situation is still unclear.
Let’s not go out for now.
How about… you sit with me while we watch TV?”

Gu Xizhou glanced at him speechless and said, “You’re certainly calm.”

The corners of Si Yu’s mouth curved up slightly, and he winked at Gu Xizhou, saying bitterly, “Can I help it?”

“Okay, ba,” Gu Xizhou didn’t have any other ideas at the moment.
Si Yu’s task worlds never used common sense.
The amusement park was like this too.
Who would have thought that the carousel horses would eat people? The corner of Gu Xizhou’s lip twitched, and he sat down next to Si Yu peacefully. 

When the two of them arrived, it was already 5 pm.
After searching the room for a little bit and talking things over before they knew it, it was already 7:30 pm.
Sitting on the sofa watching TV with Si Yu, Gu Xizhou leaned against his shoulder in a daze and fell asleep.
When he woke up, it was already 8:00.

“The NPC still isn’t here?” Gu Xizhou leaned into the sofa, finally opening his eyes only to be met with the tragic news that the NPC hadn’t appeared and there was no trace of their teammates.

Si Yu’s handsome face appeared in front of Gu Xizhou and shook his head very seriously, “They haven’t.”

“Why are your task worlds always so bizarre?” Gu Xizhou said in frustration.
He’d had breakfast at Si Yu’s, but when he entered the task world, time had changed according to the settings in the task world.
His stomach felt hollow and he was a little hungry. 

“En…it’s a little odd,” Si Yu nodded helplessly, having to admit to Gu Xizhou’s words.

Gu Xizhou put a hand on his stomach and looked up silently.
Before, whether they were good task worlds or bad ones, there was still an NPC to take care of food.
There was no one to make food in this task world.
Were they expected to make it themselves, ba?

Si Yu looked at Gu Xizhou, the corners of his mouth slightly drawn.

“Not very.” 

As soon as Gu Xizhou spoke, his stomach unexpectedly growled as if it had something against him.

“I’ll make it, ba,” Si Yu said lightly.

Gu Xizhou looked surprised, “You can?”

Si Yu, “I haven’t done it before, but it can’t be too hard, ba.” 

Gu Xizhou: “Okay, ba.
There should be some eggs in the fridge.
Just make some egg fried rice for me, I’ll sit here.”

Gu Xizhou massaged his eyes.
He walked into the bedroom and looked out.
It was dark out.
Clearly every family should be home by now.
But only seven families in the two buildings opposite to them had their lights on.


In all of the seven apartments with the lights on, he couldn’t see even one figure.
Don’t you know what that means?

Gu Xizhou waited and frowned when suddenly he smelled burning protein.
Gu Xizhou quickly left the room and went into the kitchen, rushing inside. 

When he saw Si Yu’s appearance, Gu Xizhou laughed, “How can you lose your eyebrows cooking fried rice?”

“I almost lost the hair on my head,” Si Yu held down the burnt hair, eyebrows slightly raised.
Only now, Si Yu didn’t have any.
Gu Xizhou looked and really wanted to laugh.

Gu Xizhou coughed into his fist, reaching out to ruffle Si Yu’s burnt hair.

Si Yu fixed his gaze on Gu Xizhou’s cheek.
There wasn’t much distance between the two of them.
Gu Xizhou could even hear Si Yu’s breathing.
He couldn’t help but say a few teasing words, “I thought you were an iron man.
I’ve only heard of people who are unable to cook anything edible, but you’re the first time I’ve actually seen it.” 

“Do you see now?” Si Yu raised his eyes to be met with Gu Xizhou’s growing smile, but he wasn’t angry.
He was completely defeated by Gu Xizhou and said, “You can laugh, ba.”



Gu Xizhou heard him and couldn’t endure, starting to laugh. 

In the face of his wild laughter, the corner of Si Yu’s mouth turned up a little bit.
He wasn’t angry at all.

Laughing, Gu Xizhou suddenly discovered a handsome face in front of him and a kiss fell on the corner of his mouth.

What’s with this sudden kiss?!

Gu Xizhou was a little stunned, and took a step back. 

A gentle voice explained with restraint.

I suddenly wanted to kiss you.”

Crooked: We went with using the accents to differentiate FZ and his sister, but I’m very susceptible to peer pressure if you hate it
