g time, but the ghost didn’t move to hurt them.
Wu You swallowed slowly, inadvertently catching sight of a piece of paper on the ground!

He looked at the paper before pointing it out to the other two, dartiting forward to pick it up off the ground before retreating as quickly as if he’d been bitten by a snake.
After a moment, he bowed his head to look at the contents of the paper. 

The note read: Hello, you guys are also mission takers, right? We are mission takers living on the 6th floor in apartment 11… My teammate said it was best not to call, because we didn’t know what situation might emerge.
We just wanted to remind you.

“What does it say?” Wang Mu asked urgently.

Wu You said in a low voice,  “It seems as though the thing knocking on the door is not a ghost, but a person.”

After speaking, Wu You handed the slip of paper to the other two.
After they read it, Wang Mu hesitated for a moment before speaking, “Is it really a mission taker? It’s not some ghosts trying to call us on purpose, right?” 

The little yellow card was deliberately taken from Gu Xizhou and Si Yu’s room by Wang Mu.

Wang Mu thought for a moment and said, “Wu You, go find a pen and ask them how they know we are mission takers! Let’s see how they reply and discuss it again.

Wu You hastily took out a pen and wrote on the note handed to him by Gu Xizhou: How do you know we are mission takers?

Seeing the extra words on the note, Gu Xizhou thought for a moment before writing: Like you, we went into the brightly lit apartments.
Inside the apartment there were unwashed rice bowls, so we guessed that there must be other mission takers in this mission world. 

Wu You: How can I trust you?

Gu Xizhou was about to reply when the corners of Si Yu’s mouth turned up.
He took Gu Xizhou’s pen and wrote: Believe it or don’t.

 

“What are you doing? You just gave everyone a scare and now you want to say that,” Gu Xizhou said helplessly.
“What if they originally weren’t going to make the call but do so because you embarrassed them! Won’t you feel bad?”

Si Yu suddenly lowered his voice, extremely serious, and said to Gu Xizhou, “No matter what they do, it’s their own choice.
Taking the small card was also their own decision.
In a way, every decision is the product of their own judgment.” 

Gu Xizhou was ambivalent of Si Yu’s words, “En.”

“So after getting the small card, whether or not they call it is also their own choice.
Now that we’ve come to them, whether or not they believe it is also their own choice.”

“Everything you say makes sense!” Gu Xizhou was frustrated, this guy’s logic got full marks.
Gu Xizhou was really no match for him!

“En, it makes sense.” The corners of Si Yu’s mouth turned up as he smiled at Gu Xizhou. 

Everyone saw the change in the handwriting and realized that it had been written by another person.

Wu You hesitated for a moment before coming to a decision, writing: “I believe! Can we exchange information?”

Si Yu saw these three characters and lowered his gaze slightly.
It seemed as though the other party’s reaction wasn’t what he expected.
He picked up a pen and wrote down a line: What room numbers were lit up last night?

Wu You: Your building only has two…

After exchanging information, they discovered that altogether there were nine rooms with lights on.
Other than their floor, room 306 was also lit up.

Wu You: We went into room 306 and didn’t find anything useful, did you find anything?

Si Yu: Not yet.

Wu You: Oh, okay… If we find anything we’ll let you know.
Please keep us informed! 

Si Yu: Okay, keep in touch.

Wu You: Okay

Si Yu: We’ll go back first.

Wu You: Okay. 

After resolving that matter, Gu Xizhou glanced at the sky outside.
By now it was only noon.
Gu Xizhou looked at Si Yu and walked over, saying, “Should we go take a look at room 306 later?”

“Okay,” Si Yu nodded willingly.

 

When Gu Xizhou and Si Yu returned, they stopped by 306 on the way.
There was no one inside the house.
They guessed that they were scared away by Wu You and were now hiding somewhere.
Gu Xizhou and Si Yu went in and looked around.
The room was a single room like theirs, and the number of people shouldn’t be a lot, only 1-2.

Gu Xizhou left a note for the other party before returning to their apartment with Si Yu. 

Because of the previous communication, Gu Xizhou knew the other party’s name and that the person they wrote to was Wu You.
As for the other two people, they didn’t ask.

The information Wu You gave them was also somewhat useful.
He was now sure that there were either 8 or 9 groups of people participating in the mission, and that there was possibly a ghost in one of the rooms.
They couldn’t be certain yet.

After the two people ate lunch, nothing new happened.
Extremely bored, Gu Xizhou wrote six notes and dragged a very unwilling Si Yu to a room with an open door.
If the door wouldn’t open he would just get Si Yu to pick the lock.

After all of that Gu Xizhou discovered that no one believed him at all! 

Apparently not many people went out to look for clues right away like they did.
Most people were waiting at home for the NPC.
Not only that, but not everyone had a monster like Si Yu on their team!

The corners of Si Yu’s mouth turned up, and he said with a smile, “I told you you were going to expend all the effort only for them not to believe you.”

Gu Xizhou shrugged his shoulders and said indifferently, “Well, I tried my best, and I think what you said before makes a lot of sense.”

Si Yu raised his eyebrows, “What did I say?” 

“I just gave them an opportunity in advance.
Whether or not they believe me is their business,” Gu Xizhou said, lowering his voice.
“In the mission world, life and death is ruled by fate.”

“I still feel like you want to save them,” Si Yu said with a light laugh.

Gu Xizhou shook his head, “No one can save anyone, and besides, I’m not that great.

“Do you know why I kissed you that day?” 

Si Yu thought for a moment before lowering his voice.
“You were drunk.”

“No, I wasn’t drunk.”

Si Yu tilted his head towards Gu Xizhou, resting his chin on his shoulder as he whispered hoarsely in Gu Xizhou’s ear, “Why then?”

Gu Xizhou’s eyes curved slightly as he smiled, “I like you, ah.
Before I die, I can…” 

Gu Xizhou abruptly stopped talking.
Si Yu pressed up against him and asked in a low voice, “Sleep with me first?”

Gu Xizhou glanced at him.
How could this person read minds? Gu Xizhou gritted his teeth, lowering his voice to say, “Yes, ah.”

 

A pair of dark eyes fell on Gu Xizhou’s body.
Si Yu stared at Gu Xizhou intently, his voice heavy, “You could have.”

“Then why did you interrupt me? En?” 

Si Yu lowered his voice.
His provocative voice brushed the tip of Gu Xizhou’s ear, revealing some long suppressed emotions.

Gu Xizhou moved his gaze away, clearly not wishing to have an in depth discussion with Si Yu on this topic.
Afterall he still didn’t know how to explain the Ji Ji thing to Si Yu…

“I’ll go cook dinner,” Gu Xizhou said, changing the subject, “I’ll wait for you to wash the dishes.
We have to wash dishes or we won’t have any bowls to eat out of!”

Si Yu stared at Gu Xizhou’s face for a moment before agreeing helplessly, “Okay.” 

After dinner, Gu Xizhou walked into the room, his line of sight falling on the neighborhood outside.
At the moment there was no sound from outside or anywhere else.
Apparently, he would have to wait until midnight.

After washing up, Si Yu pushed back a corner of the quilt and sat on the bed, patting the spot next to him for Gu Xizhou as he suggested, “Let’s go to sleep first, ba.
The noise will definitely wake us up during the night.”

Gu Xizhou thought that there was some sense to his words.
After washing his face simply, he laid back down in bed.

During the night, Gu Xizhou felt feverish.
Between intermittent periods of semi-consciousness, he finally opened his eyes. 

The handsome man holding him in his arms laughed hoarsely and asked in a low voice, “Awake?”

“En.” Gu Xizhou rubbed the sleep from his eyes and looked at Si Yu.
“You didn’t sleep?”

Si Yu said unexpectedly, “No.
I wanted to look at you more.
After all, you only come to find me when you need something.
As soon as you don’t need anything, you let me go.”

Gu Xizhou curled his hand into a fist and pressed it lighty to his lips, trying to explain, “I just… En… When I’m working on a case I don’t have freetime, you can understand… En?” 

Si Yu grinned, pressing one slender finger to Gu Xizhou’s lips.

Gu Xizhou: Is this telling me not to explain? En…

Si Yu’s thumb brushed the gap of Gu Xizhou’s lips, before suddenly kissing him as if trying to take the next step.
Gu Xizhou blanked out for a moment before pressing down on Si Yu’s hand, “Don’t mess around, ah.
Don’t be coquettish in the mission world!”

“Okay,” Si Yu said, the corners of his mouth curving into a smile.
He looked down at Gu Xizhou and asked quietly, “That day that female ghost groped you, you thought it was me, didn’t you?” 

Gu Xizhou sighed, “Yes! …Can we please not talk about this again?”

“Okay,” Si Yu mumbled, “How do you always attract those things?”

 

Gu Xizhou was just about to retort when a loud ‘Bang, bang, bang,’ noise suddenly came from the silent neighborhood.
Gu Xizhou didn’t say anything more and jumped off the bed.
There was no light coming from the 7th floor opposite them; it was black as night.
Gu Xizhou could vaguely make out the silhouette of a person hitting the metal railing.

Si Yu got up from the bed and went over to the window, resting his chin on Gu Xizhou’s shoulder as he whispered in his ear, “What’s the situation?” 

“There’s something on the seventh floor,” Gu Xizhou said.

When the two had stood there for a long time, Gu Xizhou estimated that it was almost time!

“Kuang Dang!”

Gu Xizhou saw a blurry shadow falling from the seventh floor along with the protective railing.
Watching from the window, he could see everything clearly.
What fell was a woman wearing a red slip dress. 

The woman’s body along with the railing smashed into the silver van parked in the neighborhood.

With wire wrapped around and around her hands, her eyes covered with paper, and her head wrapped with tape she was quite a pitiful sight.

“Should we go down and take a look?!” Gu Xizhou asked, knitting his brows.

Si Yu blocked him, shaking his head, “Wait.” 

Gu Xizhou hesitated before ultimately listening to Si Yu.

Five minutes later, two monsters suddenly emerged from the dark.

Their bodies were enormous, strange veins covering their limbs.
They landed on all fours, backs to the ground, faces upturned.
Their heads could rotate 360 degrees any way they chose.
The two monsters stealthily stole the red clothed woman like thieves from the silver van and went upstairs.

Just then, one of the heads capable of rotating 360 degrees looked towards Gu Xizhou and Si Yu’s window, revealing a gloomy and bizarre smile, as if to say: ‘I can see you.’ 

Gu Xizhou: I can see you too ^_^

Failing to catch sight of the terrified expression it had imagined, that monster tilted its head, somewhat puzzled, before it disappeared into the darkness.
