Yu and said: “…To make an example, I think we should regard each stone marble as a square lattice.
If one marble block has only one Buddha statue, then there is only one directly adjacent block with faces below it.
If there are Buddha statues in one marble block, then there are three directly adjacent blocks with faces below it.”


“There are a lot of Buddha statues on the ground, and the circles formed between them can help us determine the position of the marble blocks that have faces on them!”


“…” Si Yu glanced at him.

Gu Xizhou heard this and froze for a moment.
Yesterday, he and the female ghost had played charades for a long time to understand the purpose of the Buddha statues.
He had used all his energy to understand the rules, and took about two hours to guess, but Si Yu figured it out in one word. 



Gu Xizhou carefully thought about his previous communication with the female ghost.
Si Yu wasn’t wrong in using the word ‘minesweeper’ to describe the current circumstance–if he changed his way of explaining it, it would really just be a simple minesweeper game.


The Buddha statue was like a digital prompt in the minesweeping game.
The face buried in the ground would be a mind in the game.
The only difference was that if you step on a mine, it wouldn’t be a GAME OVER, but the people who stepped on the mine would die.
All they had to do was dig the mine out. 


Si Yu glanced at the ring of black marble, and found the spot where the teammate had disappeared from yesterday.
Judging from the position of the surrounding Buddha statues, the marble block seemed to adhere to the minesweeper rules, and there really was a ‘mine’ below. 


“It is indeed possible,” Si Yu said softly after a while.


Seeing that Si Yu was a little hesitant, Gu Xizhou said: “I’ll do it, you can just remember where the positions are, and I’ll act when you tell me to.”


There seemed to be hundreds or thousands of women crying at the same time in the ancestral hall.
Their tears kept flowing, and Gu Xizhou looked at Si Yu.
“Relax! We’ll definitely go back.”


Si Yu stared at him for a while, then looked at the sky outside, and finally nodded reluctantly.
His eyes fell on the Buddha statue and marble for a moment, then he said to Gu Xizhou: “I’ll remember, start from here then.”


Si Yu pointed to a piece of marble not far from him, and told Gu Xizhou to stand on it.


Gu Xizhou smashed the first marble, but nothing happened… Si Yu’s gaze was always on him.
Then, Gu Xizhou pried open and smashed the second marble.
Si Yu kept staring at Gu Xizhou’s soles, and after confirming that nothing happened to him after he smashed the second large block of marble, he breathed a sigh of relief. 


After Gu Xizhou shattered the third and fourth blocks, Si Yu visibly became calmer, losing his previous tension.
He leaned against the wall that leaked out crying sounds and directed him quietly, but his gaze never left Gu Xizhou. 



When Gu Xizhou shattered all the blocks that had mines below, the cries from the wall came to an abrupt end. 


Gu Xizhou raised his head and saw that the surrounding walls were slowly infested with blood, and a blood-colored human figure appeared.
It was like that day when Liu Kai sat on the Buddha statue, but this time, the girls didn’t cry or laugh. 


The faceless women left the walls and shuttled amongst the four of them, until they walked to the marble blocks that Gu Xizhou had smashed open.
One woman took a face on the ground, and passed it around.
This continued until one of the faceless women took the face and paused.
It pressed the face on her hands, and then lifted it to cover its face. 


An ordinary-looking woman showed a satisfied smile, and then its body began to collapse and wither like weathered stones in the sun.

Eventually, the last faceless woman came to Gu Xizhou hesitantly with a face in her hand.
She seemed a little afraid.
Gu Xizhou glanced at her and immediately recognised that this was one who had been beaten by him last night!


It stuck the face it had just obtained on its own face, and Gu Xizhou saw a beautiful and gentle woman stand before him.
She had a unique aura around her, and her eyes hid a smile.
Her mouth moved slightly, and although there was no sound, Gu Xizhou could guess what she was trying to say. 


She was thanking him.


As the last ‘thing’ disappeared, the entire ancestral hall suddenly turned silent. 


Fu Yiran, who was standing outside, grabbed the plaque on the ground and hung it up with the help of another companion.
Fu Yiran jumped off the ladder and said: “It’s done!”


“The people in this village are really sick.
They put the faces of those women on the ground and let it be stepped on by tens of thousands of people,” Fu Yiran sighed. 



Someone else frowned and said: “Why would they do this?”


“Open the door, and you’ll know when you go in,” Fu Yiran sneered.
“It’s just a messy history.”


Then, Fu Yiran took one step closer to Gu Xizhou and smiled at him.
“See you next time.”


Gu Xizhou: “…” Who wants to see you?!


After he heard those words, the man agreed, and didn’t hesitate.
He had already wanted to leave from the very beginning, and after thanking a few of them, he pushed the door open and went through.
Fu Yiran spoke with Gu Xizhou, then, without speaking to Si Yu, he smiled as he walked through the door.


Gu Xizhou and Si Yu had to go back to find Liu Kai who had been left in the house, so they didn’t immediately push the door open.
They went back to pick up Liu Kai.


“Don’t worry, after you leave the mission world, your eyes should be fine.” Si Yu interrupted Liu Kai’s thanks, and after Gu Xizhou forced Liu Kai through the door, Si Yu made an inviting gesture to Gu Xizhou.
“You first.”


“En,” Gu Xizhou said, nodding.
“See you outside.”


Gu Xizhou opened the wooden door, and as before, his consciousness soon fell into blur–
