e said quietly.
Gu Xizhou raised the corners of his mouth.
With a glance at him, he laughed.
“How about you call the phone number?”
“Okay,” Si Yu replied.
Gu Xizhou: “? ? ?”
Seeing Si Yu pull out his phone, Gu Xizhou’s expression was now really shocked, shocked stupid!
“You really called?” Gu Xizhou rolled his eyes.
He’d just spoken when he heard the phone in his pocket suddenly ring.
Gu Xizhou: “……” What kind of devil is this?”
Gu Xizhou cursed darkly: Fuck, be careful your flirty ‘leg’ doesn’t get broken!
“Hurry, answer the phone,” said Si Yu mildly.
Gu Xizhou almost died of anger.
He pulled out his phone and smashed the decline button, saying, “Screw off, you can’t use your phone casually in the mission world.
Weren’t you the one who told me that? Or did you forget so quickly? Don’t you know there’s a time and place for coquetry?
“Then when can I be coquettish?” Si Yu smiled without smiling, asking further, “In the evening, can I?”
Gu Xizhou was a little annoyed.
“Can’t! Can you not make fun of me? I’m having a serious conversation with you!”
Si Yu snorted and said, “Relax, as long as we don’t dial this phone number, nothing will happen.”
Gu Xizhou stared coldly at him.
“You know that?”
As he finished saying this, Gu Xizhou didn’t feel like waiting for Si Yu’s explanation and turned around to go to the kitchen.
Having no NPCs to cook for him didn’t mean he would eat breakfast.
He went in to search for food.
Si Yu saw Gu Xizhou ignoring him and helplessly dropped his eyes to look at the little yellow card.
With a twitch of his mouth, he threw the little card onto the living room table.
Gu Xizhou casually fried up two eggs, and the two ate a passable breakfast.
Setting down the bowl and chopsticks, Gu Xizhou said to Si Yu, “Should we go out now?”
“En, the night is over, and we can verify that this world has no NPCs,” said Si Yu.
“Wait for me to finish eating and we’ll leave together.”
After breakfast, the two took the house key and went out.
The hallway seemed to radiate malice.
Si Yu held out a hand to Gu Xizhou.
Gu Xizhou stared blankly.
“What do you want to do?” he asked in confusion.
Si Yu looked at Gu Xizhou calmly and said, “I’m scared.”
Gu Xizhou suddenly sank into self doubt: After getting drunk that day, did he kiss Si Yu too hard and addle his brains?
“Let’s go, ba.” Si Yu held Gu Xizhou’s hand and pulled him downstairs.
The two people went down side by side.
Gu Xizhou stared at their interlocked hands.
He didn’t know whether… they were still joining mission worlds because they didn’t want to die or because they wanted to date.
After they went downstairs, there was nothing unusual happening.
Gu Xizhou followed Si Yu over to the stairs opposite theirs and walked up to the third floor.
Si Yu paused, then he pulled Gu Xizhou over to the fifth door and knocked.
“Knock knock knock.”
“Knock knock knock.”
After a while, suddenly, Gu Xizhou heard a clicking sound.
He subconsciously tightened his grip on Si Yu’s hand and stared closely at the opening door, wanting to know if the one that opened it was someone or something.
The door opened with a creak, but there was no one on the other side.
Gu Xizhou frowned.
Apartment 305 was actually one of the 7 apartments he saw lit up last night.
He glanced inside the room.
It looked very ordinary, but Gu Xizhou didn’t go in.
In the previous snowman world, entering a strange room almost made him go cold.
After that, he couldn’t guarantee whether there was something strange set up in this apartment.
“Don’t want to go in?” asked Si Yu, tilting his head at Gu Xizhou.
Gu Xizhou was forced to admit his own anxiety.
“I’m afraid that if we both go in, the door will shut.”
Si Yu said thoughtfully, “Then I’ll go in and look for clues.
You guard the door and keep it open.”
“En… We can switch,” Gu Xizhou said quietly.
Si Yu spoke mildly: “No need, I can go in.”
Seeing Si Yu walk in, Gu Xizhou used his hand to stop the door.
Suddenly, a force acted on the door, like there was an invisible hand trying to shut it.
Gu Xizhou mentally cursed, ‘fuck!’.
Luckily they didn’t go in together!
Luckily, the ghost wasn’t very strong.
It tried to close the door, but it couldn’t.
After about ten seconds, the ghost gave up.
Gu Xizhou looked all around the room and the hallway, but he couldn’t see anything.
He anxiously called Si Yu’s name.
Si Yu came out from exploring the apartment’s bedroom and asked, “What is it?”
“Something tried to close the door,” said Gu Xizhou, “but it didn’t seem very strong.
I pressed against the door, and it gave up.”
Si Yu came over and shook his head at Gu Xizhou.
“There’s nothing inside.
Since it’s like this, let’s go upstairs first.
There were two other rooms lit up in this building.”
“Okay.” Gu Xizhou naturally agreed.
He wasn’t afraid of a ghost suddenly appearing, he was only afraid that it would use the rules against him, which would render him truly helpless.
At apartment 510’s door, Si Yu knocked on the door just like before, but this time there was no ‘ghost’ to open the door.
Si Yu efficiently pulled out a hair clip from his pocket and, with practiced movements and a couple of clicks, the anti-theft door… opened.
Gu Xizhou had the urge to take Si Yu into the detention center.
Who knew what Si Yu’s subordinates would look like if they saw their boss skillfully opening an anti-theft door.
Gu Xizhou thought about this casually in his mind, but he soon derailed this train of thought.
Si Yu didn’t find anything useful in apartment 510 either, so they went to the top floor to see apartment 713…
Last night, they saw seven bright lights lit up in different apartments all night.
Gu Xizhou raised an eyebrow.
As a result, they looked for half a day and out of seven apartments they met six ghosts who either wanted to close or push the door.
Every time, after Si Yu went in, a powerful force would suddenly appear, and Si Yu would grab his hand and run away wildly.
Gu Xizhou wanted to beat up the ghosts, but the problem was that these ghosts were all cowards.
They won’t show up at all, so how can he beat them!
After running out from the final apartment——
“No clues…” Gu Xizhou said, a little twitchy.
“We’ve looked at all 7 apartments that were lit up.”
“There’s still a room we haven’t gone to.” Si Yu wasn’t worried at all.
He pointed at the building that he and Gu Xizhou lived in.
Gu Xizhou looked at their building with a frown and said, “If we want to look at the lights in this building, we’d have to go outside and look every night.”
Si Yu smiled at Gu Xizhou.
It really doesn’t matter whether we look.”
Gu Xizhou: “En? What doesn’t matter?”
Si Yu laughed.
“Let’s go back first.
I still need to confirm it.
“Oh.” Gu Xizhou nodded and followed Si Yu without asking anything further.
They lived on the sixth floor, room 611.
Gu Xizhou had just stepped into the sixth floor hallway when he couldn’t help but frown.
When they went out, he remembered they closed the door, but now their door was wide open.
Gu Xizhou and Si Yu exchanged glances.
Gu Xizhou took a step forward.
The inside of the room was in chaos, as if it was just ransacked by someone.
Fuck, this ghost actually took advantage of their absence to pillage their room!
“What was this ghost looking for?” Gu Xizhou scowled.
Last night, he and Si Yu had already searched the apartment from top to bottom and scoured it inch by inch, but there was nothing there!
“I don’t know, but the little yellow card we put on the desk is gone.” Si Yu spread his hands and pointed helplessly to the dining table from the door.
“Maybe the ghost was lonely.”
Gu Xizhou clenched his fist and lightly thumbed Si Yu’s chest.
“You’re still in the mood to joke around.”
“Yes, I lied to you.” Si Yu grabbed Gu Xizhou’s hand and said, “Actually, nothing we encountered earlier was a ghost.”
Gu Xizhou: “En?”
Si Yu said indifferently, “What we actually ran into were all people.
It should be the mission takers from Building 2 Apartment 510 who ran over and rummaged through our room.
Wait for them to go back and find they’re the same as us.”
Gu Xizhou: “Hold on, why do I feel a little lost, ah.”
Si Yu thought a bit and said, “Simply speaking, this world’s mission takers can’t see each other.
Only when they enter a fixed room and make a sound by moving things can they know the others exist.
“But because the mission takers are invisible, they can’t touch each other, so they automatically make the false assumption that the other apartments are haunted and think there are no other teammates in this world but themselves.”
“Wait, we’ve been together the whole time… how do you know this?” Gu Xizhou asked hesitantly.
Si Yu said, “I just went into the kitchen of each apartment.”
Gu Xizhou: “? ? ?”
Si Yu: “They’re just like us… Eating a meal without washing the dishes.”
Gu Xizhou: “Is that it?”
Si Yu winked at him.
“After all, when ghosts ‘eat’ they don’t need bowls.”
Gu Xizhou really wanted to take a look at what kind of monster was in Si Yu’s head! You figured it out just looking at the two bowls in the sink?!
Speaking up to this point, Si Yu suddenly lowered his voice.
“But now there seems to be a small problem.
The mission takers in Building 2 Apartment 510 took that little yellow card away as a clue.
I hope they didn’t call it.”
Gu Xizhou: “You think you can just change the subject and I’ll forget that you led me along and held my hand to run away five times?”
