“I can’t get out of this one either.
They need my skills.”

Gu Ji Ji listened to his parents and puffed out his cheeks.
His seething expression looked like a goldfish. 

Zhou Xinyue patted Gu Ji Ji’s shoulder.
“Sorry, Xiao Zhou, we can’t eat with you today, either.
Take this food back first, and I’ll tell your Aunt Kong you should eat at her house.”

The couple gave Gu Ji Ji a few warnings.
They wanted to say more, but their phones dinged and forced them to speed it up.
They left in a hurry.

Gu Ji Ji took the food and stood in the middle of the courtyard, looking a little lonely.

Gu Xizhou looked down at him and asked softly, “Are you alright?” 

“Ah, it’s nothing.
I’m used to it.”

Gu Ji Ji’s expression was still full of grief he was unable to hide.
“Actually, I don’t know why my mom had to be a police officer, too.
My dad is, and he’s poor!”

“Why do you say that?”

Gu Ji Ji glanced at Gu Xizhou and stuck out his tongue.
“I’m not telling you!” 

After saying that, Gu Ji Ji vanished upstairs, leaving the disappointed Gu Xizhou all alone.
Gu Xizhou was about to leave when he saw Wang Shu come down from upstairs, led by a young Kong Yue.

Wang Shu saw Gu Xizhou and yelled happily, “Uncle! You haven’t left yet!”

Gu Xizhou thought, then said, “En.
I don’t know the way.”

Kong Yue saw that Wang Shu knew this handsome young man and was confused.
She asked Wang Shu about what happened. 

“That’s the uncle who saved Gu Xizhou and me that I told you about!”

“Oh,” Kong Yue quickly expressed her thanks to Gu Xizhou.
“Thank you, little brother!”


Gu Xizhou felt a little awkward about this address.
“No problem,” he replied stiffly.

Because she just got Gu Qing’s phone call, there wasn’t enough food at home, so Kong Yue wanted to go out and get some groceries.
Her daughter was coming along.
After she bought them, she found that Gu Xizhou was unexpectedly still by the gate, and he hadn’t left yet.
Feeling a little odd, she gave him a strange look and said hesitantly, “Little brother, do you still need something?” 

“I’m fine.” Gu Xizhou was sweating, and he felt a little embarrassed.
I’m going, bye bye.”

After Gu Xizhou left, he rubbed his forehead.
He didn’t understand the present circumstances, but he asked someone about the date and ascertained that tomorrow was the day Tong Jia would jump off a building.
On Friday, Tong Jia would be teased by Gu Ji Ji, and after returning home, she would fall, jumping to her death.

Gu Xizhou’s heart sank.
Even if Gu Ji Ji said he didn’t care about Tong Jia’s cause of death, it seemed that he obviously took it to heart.

Not only should this memory be very intense, but the time he was placed in this world was very subtle.
Gu Xizhou couldn’t help but wonder, could it be that Ji Ji was the same as those other ghosts, and that his obsession with Tong Jia’s death had broken his chains? 

In the worlds he’d experienced, there were two kinds of ghosts.
One ghost made no sound whatsoever, but the ones who had the door were accompanied by the clanging sound of chains

Every time the ghosts connected to the door would take a step, the chains around their feet would slide and clack together.

When he woke up for work that morning, he mistakenly thought the rattling sound was his neighbor making a ruckus.
Now, thinking carefully, that sound was more like the rattling of chains, but this sound was different from any broken ghost chain he’d heard after going through a door!

The chains on those ghosts were broken after the accumulation of negative emotion. 

The chains on Ji Ji were clearly broken for a different reason than those pitiful ghosts.

The question is, if he saves Tong Jia tomorrow, will he grant Ji Ji’s wish?

If so… if he grants Ji Ji’s wish, will Gu Ji Ji disappear like the other ghosts?

Gu Xizhou clenched his fists, and his heart sank.
“Ji Ji, are you there? Come out! I need to ask you something!” 

“Ji Ji?”

Ji Ji clearly wasn’t there because Gu Xizhou didn’t hear anything.
There were no chain sounds anywhere in the surroundings.

There was no NPC, and there was no one to even talk to him.

Hold on… this world wouldn’t leave him homeless, right? 

Gu Xizhou pondered over this problem.

The world before this one made him cook for himself.
Don’t tell him that in this one he had to sleep on the streets?


At around ten o’clock, after Gu Xizhou confirmed that this world would really let him sleep on the streets, he toughened his scalp and walked to the police station.

An officer on duty in the station saw him and asked, “Are you here to report a crime?” 

Gu Xizhou shook his head.
“I have nowhere to live and no money to eat.”

The officer looked at him, “so what?” written across his whole face.

Gu Xizhou said earnestly, “When there’s a problem, look for a police officer!”

Officer: “???” 

Crooked: …I forgor
