Ch131 – You Don’t Have a Fever

Gu Xizhou smiled at the monster and was about to go down after it when he was caught by Si Yu.

“Let’s go together,” said Si Yu.

 

 

Gu Xizhou nodded thoughtfully and said, “Okay.”

The hallway was very dreary.
Gu Xizhou felt the burning temperature of Si Yu’s palm, and his eyelids drooped a bit as he followed after.
The two left the room but didn’t head downstairs yet. 

“Peng! Peng! Peng!”

 

Suddenly, the sound of something striking an iron nailing sounded repeatedly in the midst of the endless night, followed by a mournful wail.
It was a woman’s wail, and it was clearly the voice of that woman from earlier.

“They haven’t gone far yet!” exclaimed Si Yu, pulling Gu Xizhou along by the hand.
He squeezed his hand tightly.

Gu Xizhou glanced at the stares and frowned, saying, “I don’t know what it’s like outside.”

 

Si Yu: “We’re about to find out.”

Gu Xizhou: “Okay.”

Gu Xizhou wasn’t afraid from the beginning.
As long as they didn’t encounter any invisible rules, it was unlikely that these ghosts could be his opponents.
And with Si Yu, he hardly had to worry about death rules.

 

Gu Xizhou looked at Si Yu and relaxed a bit, unexpectedly feeling a type of indescribable security. 

Just when they went out, two sharp striking sounds echoed in the darkness, like human bone hitting metal.
It was a violent sound.
Immediately afterward, Gu Xizhou heard the woman’s voice once again, shrieking bitterly.

The woman’s screams and the strange banging noise echoed endlessly from within the impenetrable darkness.

After a moment, the clanging noise became an even stranger sound.

Ka ka ka. 

Ka ka ka.

It was like something was carefully crunching a bone to pieces.
Instantly, the surroundings returned to tranquility.
They could only hear this odd noise.
There was no light on the way across from the stairs, and they couldn’t see anything.
They had no idea what it was like inside the darkness.

Gu Xizhou mulled it over, looking down at the flashlight in his hands.
He exchanged a look with Si Yu.
“Use this to take a look?”

Si Yu didn’t oppose him and nodded.
“Okay, ah.” 

Gu Xizhou turned on the flashlight and shined it at the ‘ka ka ka’ sound.
The hallway was completely empty.
There was nothing there.

The two stepped closer.
There was a blood smear on the ground.
Blood was left on the hallway where a woman was seemingly dragged upstairs, since the traces left behind in the blood were clearly drag marks.

 

“Let’s go up and look,” whispered Gu Xizhou.

Si Yu looked thoughtful.
After a moment, he nodded.
“Okay, we’ll stay together.” 

Using the flashlight, Gu Xizhou and Si Yu followed the bloodstains all the way to the door of Building 1 Apartment 713 where they stopped.

“Ka ka ka.”

A strange noise came from inside, like something chewing its food.

As they ate, dark blood flowed down their hands and dripped onto the white floor tiles.

The blood pools flowed all over the room, far more than a single person could produce.
These two monsters had eaten more than just one human being. 

Gu Xizhou judged the way very quickly.

Noticing the light, the two upside down monsters turned their faces toward Gu Xizhou and Si Yu, their eyes curving into narrow crescent moons.
In contrast, the pupils began to rapidly spin around while the purple veined hands of the monsters squeezed the human limbs, opening up their supernaturally wide mouths filled with fangs with lips dyed red with blood.

The two monsters didn’t move at all.
They remained hanging upside down peacefully while they rigidly stared at Gu Xizhou and Si Yu.

Gu Xizhou originally thought they were eating the red dress woman who fell from upstairs, but when he looked around with the flashlight, he saw her sitting on a cabinet inside.
She weakly opened her mouth, exhausted.
Gu Xizhou managed to read her lips with difficulty and judged that she was asking for help: Save me. 

“Gugugu.” A strange noise came from the monsters’ throats.

The woman in the red dress looked at Gu Xizhou with a pleading and desperately terrified expression.
Gu Xizhou stared at the woman coldly.
Don’t think he didn’t pay attention to details! When he moved the flashlight over the body of the ‘woman’, she didn’t have a shadow!

“En? There’s nothing inside.” Si Yu said, fiercely yanking Gu Xizhou back and closing the door.
“Let’s go.”

Gu Xizhou tilted his head, giving Si Yu a strange look, but he listened and pulled Si Yu’s hand, leading him leisurely back to the seventh floor staircase.
At the same time, the two monsters inside pushed open the door and stretched out their heads, staring inscrutably at their backs. 

One of them quickly crawled along the wall up to the ceiling and reached out a hand to try to grab Si Yu.

Gu Xizhou wanted to beat the ghost, but Si Yu grabbed him and said, “It’s too dark, aim your flashlight ahead.
I can’t see the path.”

 

Si Yu rolled his ankle and luckily dodged the ghost reaching for him.
It seemed like he really didn’t see it reaching for him over and over again, its ugly face lurching within ten centimeters of him.
He looked ahead indifferently as he pulled Gu Xizhou to leave.

The two monsters pursued them doggedly.
Gu Xizhou naturally wasn’t afraid, but he was worried that the two monsters would suddenly attack.
He raised an eyebrow and pointed at them, saying, “It…” 

Gu Xizhou hadn’t finished speaking when Si Yu interrupted him and whispered in his ear, “Close your eyes.”

Gu Xizhou: “???” Wait what, ah!

Wait a minute, why are you trying to kiss me?

It wasn’t just a kiss; Si Yu’s lips fell on Gu Xizhou’s eyelids, too.
Gu Xizhou was baffled, but he had no choice but to close his eyes. 

Did Si Yu not see these monsters? But when they were upstairs, Si Yu obviously saw them! And why were they embracing each other in front of these two ghosts?

The two monsters didn’t attack them.
They were dumbfounded, scratching their heads as they looked back and forth between Gu Xizhou and Si Yu.

When Gu Xizhou opened his eyes, he saw that the two monsters wore that strange and sinister smile again, and they surrounded Gu Xizhou and Si Yu on either side.
They stared at them with their big, bell-shaped eyes.

Two Monsters: We’re watching you oh! 

Gu Xizhou: En.

Two Monsters: Aren’t you scared?

Gu Xizhou: Scared that President Si’s brain is abnormal.
I’m very scared.

Two Monsters: Fuck, look at us ah! 

The embraced Gu Xizhou was stared at by the two ghosts’ big bell-shaped eyes.
His mood was quite subtle.

The two ghosts waited for Gu Xizhou and Si Yu to finish kissing.
Seeing that these two didn’t intend to pay attention to them, they exchanged glances, and one monster scratched its head in puzzlement.

They issued that strange sound from the depths of their throats.

“Gugugugu?!” 

“Gugugu!”

“Gugugu?”

 

“Gugugu…”

To roughly translate their words: 

“They’re not looking at us?!”

“S-so it seems!”

“Then how do we scare them?”

“I dunno…” 

After the two people closed the door to their room, Gu Xizhou glanced over at Si Yu and asked suspiciously, “Those two monsters followed us all the way to the door.
Did you not see them?”

“I saw.” Si Yu sprawled lazily on the sofa.
He was a bit jittery because they’d just escaped the monsters in the building.

Gu Xizhou was shocked.
He asked, “Then why did you say you didn’t see anything?”

Si Yu patted the cushion beside him and said, “Come sit.” 

Gu Xizhou ‘en’ed.
He sat beside Si Yu, then he heard him use his sonorous baritone voice to speak.

“This monster is very weak on its own.
They can deliberately manufacture terrifying scenes for mission takers to see, threatening them.
If the mission takers are afraid of them, then they can kill.
If they’re not afraid, then it’s fine.

“I’ve seen this kind of monster before.
All of my teammates died, except for me.”

“I really thought you couldn’t see them!” Gu Xizhou was dumbfounded. 

“They were acting too deliberately just now.
They obviously wanted us to see them, but I wasn’t sure they were this kind of monster, so I pretended not to see them to verify it,” said Si Yu.

Gu Xizhou lowered his voice.
“And you’re sure now?”

“En,” said Si Yu.
“They didn’t attack us, which means they weren’t able to attack us.
If not, do you think they would let us go?”

After that, Si Yu looked at Gu Xizhou and said, “I was a little worried about you, so I wanted to kiss you to distract you, but it seems you really weren’t afraid of them.” 

Gu Xizhou: “You could’ve told me directly.
You didn’t need to kiss me to distract me…” I didn’t get distracted, and I was stared at by the two ghosts for ages…

Si Yu thought about it, then said, “Mainly, I needed distraction.
I was scared.”

 

Gu Xizhou: Like I’d believe your nonsense!

Seeing Gu Xizhou roll his eyes, Si Yu shrugged his shoulders indifferently.
With a helpless expression, he said, “Okay, I admit it.
I just wanted to kiss you.” 

Gu Xizhou felt Si Yu’s forehead, shaking his head.
“You don’t have a fever, ah, so why are you so worked up?”

Si Yu: “Because of you.”

Gu Xizhou: “……” He wanted a normal Si Yu.
He was wrong, he shouldn’t have kissed Si Yu.
This time, he was directly kissed foolish!

The next day, Gu Xizhou wrote down what he saw last night along with Si Yu’s judgment of the situation, copied it on eight slips of paper, and put one in each of the other rooms.
The only people who communicated with them were the three in Building 2’s 510. 

Wu You: Thanks for the information.
Actually, we didn’t dare to go out yesterday.

Gu Xizhou: Oh.

Nothing happened during the day apart from Si Yu’s abnormality.
Everything looked normal to Gu Xizhou.

During the night, Gu Xizhou found that instead of seven bright rooms across from them, tonight, there were only six.
In other words, mission takers had already died yesterday. 

For two consecutive days, nothing happened except for lights disappearing one after another.
At night, the ‘clang clang clang’ sound went off constantly, disturbing their rest.

Very late at night, Gu Xizhou fell asleep.
Once again, he heard the ‘clang clang clang’ sound.
Unsurprisingly, the woman in the red dress fell onto the silver van once again.
It was the exact same scene as a few days ago.

Gu Xizhou irritably got out of bed.
Out the window, the two monsters looked at each other and smiled at him again.

Recently, these two humans they stared at gloomily night after night made the monsters doubt their lives a little bit.
Fortunately, the other mission takers were still normal.
Even if they doubted life, they still had to keep smiling. 

Two monsters: We see you!

Gu Xizhou: I see you, too; wait for me! If I don’t clean you up today, then my surname isn’t Gu! Get ready!

“What are you doing?” Sitting up in bed, Si Yu rubbed his sleepy eyes and looked at Gu Xizhou drowsily.

“Today is the fourth day.” Gu Xizhou raised an eyebrow.
“Let’s go find those two monsters!” 

Si Yu stared blankly.
“Find them?”

“En!” Gu Xizhou said quietly.
“Didn’t you say that as long as we’re not afraid of them, they can’t do anything to us? I want to see what they’re up to!”

 

Si Yu: “?”

A half hour later, Si Yu was stunned. 

Si Yu: When I told you their characteristics, I didn’t expect you to beat them up.

Now, Si Yu sat on the sofa in Building 1 Room 713.
Soon, the two homicidal ghosts that relied on fear resembled two weak chickens… Gu Xizhou stepped on them.
In the face of Gu Xizhou, these two fear ghosts could be described in two words, “done for”.

The two monsters:

“Gugugu?” 

“Gugugugu!!”

If this was translated, it would probably be:

“How did everything get turned upside down? Even if they’re not afraid of us, why do they still have to beat us?”

“How would I know! Aaah! It hurts!” 

The author has something to say:     Gu Xizhou: I think you’re out of your mind, and I have proof!

Si Yu: ?

Good night
