h and every one of the white circles they draw are the restorations of death scenes.
This is the reason someone would die if they stand in the circle.

At this time, Gu Xizhou had roughly determined that the task of the world was to find Ding Han.
He raised his eyebrows and asked, “So that’s it; The boy was gone?”

Teacher Zhao nodded.
“Yes, the school was very puzzled.
Because of this, that teacher resigned.
Later, rumors somehow circulated that our school was haunted.” 

As Gu Xizhou listened to Teacher Zhao speak, he glanced at his companions’ table from time to time.

“Oh, that’s right.
Why did you think to ask about this?” Teacher Zhao asked softly.

Gu Xizhou smiled at her.
“It doesn’t matter.
I was just curious why these children played nothing but hide and seek.”

Teacher Zhao suddenly realized, “Oh, so that’s it.
At first, when I had just taken over the class, every day they would yell and shout for HanHan to come back.
I lied and told them they would only be able to find the hidden HanHan if they played hide and seek.
So now, they play hide and seek every day to try to find HanHan.” 

“Teacher Zhao, do you remember the beautiful woman at the gate?” Gu Xizhou asked.

Teacher Zhao looked at Gu Xizhou with suspicion.


Gu Xizhou said, as if by accident, “She is HanHan’s mother.
She’s here to pick up the child.”

When Teacher Zhao heard this, her face suddenly turned white, and she said in a trembling voice, “So that’s it.
I thought she had a problem with her brain, ai.” 

Teacher Zhao felt somewhat guilty, and she bowed her head.
Gu Xizhou still wanted to ask a few more questions, but Teacher Zhao refused to answer anything further.

The children were also eating in the cafeteria, but they were quite well-behaved.
Clearly they’d been raised well.

Gu Xizhou went back to tell the others what he’d learned.
Si Yu rested his slender upper body on the table and pondered for a moment.
He said, “We can be certain that as long as we find the child, we can leave.”

The short-haired girl looked cheerful.
Today was Tuesday, and the deadline was still five days away.
Yesterday, they were at their wits’ end, but today they’d already found so many useful clues! 

“But we looked for so long today, and there was no body, ah,” the short-haired girl said to Si Yu.
“We looked in all the places you said!”

Si Yu was about to speak when he heard a somewhat uncertain voice.
“Actually, there’s still one place on the playground we haven’t searched…”

Fang Zhi scratched his head and stated: “Let’s go look inside the pool on the playground.”

Si Yu nodded, “Yes, we didn’t search that pool.” 

Upon hearing this, the three girls stared blankly.
They hesitated and said, “That pool is so big, and there are fish and plants inside.
Furthermore, a lot of leaves and foliage have fallen in.
Could the child really be inside?”

“And exactly because of this, Ding Han is likely to be inside.
Let’s have a try this afternoon.” Surprisingly, Gu Xizhou agreed with Si Yu.

After eating, Si Yu could barely keep his eyes open because of his illness.
Gu Xizhou looked at him and said, “You go rest for a while.
We’ll go drain the water first.
You can go have a rest, ba.”

Si Yu waved his hand and said, “No need.
I’ll wait for you.” 

At the end of the school day, Gu Xizhou looked up to check the time and said, “The last bus is still half an hour away.
The water has already been drained.
You all watch the time.
Regardless of whether we can find it in twenty minutes or not, we should take the bus.”

“Okay!” Fang Zhi immediately took the machete and entered the muddy water with Gu Xizhou, using his hands to cut apart the roots of the aquatic plants.

Beside them, the three girls also jumped down one by one to lend a hand cutting the grasses.

Before long, Gu Xizhou got rid of the weeds in front of him and saw a small blue and purple face.
His lips were pale white, without a trace of blood. 

“Uncle, are you here to find me?” Wearing yellow short sleeves and black shorts, the little boy suddenly opened his eyes and asked Gu Xizhou.

Si Yu stood up and yelled anxiously, “Gu Xizhou, be careful!”


Gu Xizhou looked back at him and waved a hand to indicate there was no need to worry.

The three girls and Fang Zhi were rigid, not daring to move. 

Gu Xizhou replied to the child, “Little friend, are you Ding Han?”

The little boy nodded.
“Yes, ah.
Uncle knows me?”

“Your mother is waiting for you at the school gate, and Uncle will go together with you to find her, all right?”

“Really?” When he spoke, Ding Han’s expression suddenly morphed into pleasant surprise, “Is Mama here now?” 

“En, she’s here.”

Gu Xizhou said, “Look, Uncle helped you get rid of all the water plants.
Uncle will carry you to go up, okay?”

“Thank you, Uncle.
It’s so cold here.
Finally, I can leave.” Ding Han smiled, but with his blue and purple skin, it looked somewhat frightening.

Gu Xizhou was certain Ding Han was a ghost and had already been dead for a very long time because when he picked up Ding Han, his body was ice-cold. 

As he brought Ding Han out of the pool, Gu Xizhou watched him closely as to avoid this little demon suddenly trying to injure someone, but up until they left the school, Ding Han made no move to hurt anyone.
As soon as he reached the exit, Ding Han immediately looked at the beautiful woman in front of the school gate.

Ding Han scampered over and grabbed the beautiful woman’s hand, acting spoiled as he called, “Mama, I waited until you finally came to pick me up!”

The beautiful woman picked up Ding Han and lightly swatted his bottom as she started to cry.
“You child, why did you come out so late! You scared Mama to death!”

Ding Han used his tiny hands to wipe the tears from the woman’s cheek and said, “Mama, you and Father give me a baby brother, ba!” 

“Didn’t you say you wanted a younger sister before?” asked the beautiful woman.

Ding Han waved his hands.
“No, no! It must be a little brother! That way he can protect you in my place!”

Ding Han lightly touched the tear stains on the beautiful woman’s face.
He hugged her and said with a fragile voice, “Mama, you know I’m already dead.
My death had nothing to do with you coming late.
It’s not your fault.
It was due to my own carelessness that I fell in the pond! You should go back quickly, ba! In the future, you must not come to pick me up every day because this time, I’m really going!”

Ding Han’s body slowly started to disappear, and he whispered to the woman, “Mama, I love you.” 

The beautiful woman heard Ding Han’s words and began to sob.
She covered her mouth and crouched at the curb to cry.

In the wake of Ding Han’s disappearance, a wooden doorway appeared at the school gate——


Gu Xizhou glanced at the woman on the curb before gently opening the wooden door.
He turned and beckoned to the three girls.
They looked at the crying woman and could hardly bear to leave her, but they still swiftly entered the wooden door.

Gu Xizhou and the other three entered the wooden door one after another.
Before entering the door, Gu Xizhou looked back at Si Yu, who was walking behind him.
Then after a burst of dizziness—— 

“HanHan! HanHan, you’re being naughty again.
Don’t pull my hair, okay?” The pretty little girl puffed out her cheeks and slapped Ding Han’s wandering hand.

Ding Han made a face, “Fine, ba.”

At the podium was an unfamiliar teacher.
As they were talking, Gu Xizhou felt the scene before him move rapidly.
Gu Xizhou heard the sound of water.

Then Gu Xizhou felt the water drowning him.
The plants underwater brushed his body, and his consciousness gradually turned fuzzy. 

Ding Han wanted to shake off the plants tangling around him, but the more he struggled, the more the plants twined around his limbs.
Because he was drowning and struggling with all his might, Ding Han gradually lost strength, and he could no longer splash around.

Gu Xizhou noticed Ding Han slowly sink underwater, and the plants surrounded him and covered his body.

Soon, Ding Han stopped struggling and completely lost his life.

An unknown time later, he heard a voice. 

“HanHan! HanHan, where are you!”

Ding Han! Ding Han, don’t hide! Come out, or Teacher will get angry!”

Just as Teacher Zhao said, many people came to look, but they couldn’t find Ding Han.
Some people jumped into the pond to search for him, but his body had sunk to the bottom and was completely covered in plants.
They couldn’t see him at all.

“HanHan! HanHan, come out quickly! Mama is here to get you!” 

Gu Xizhou noticed it was the beautiful woman, Ding Han’s mother.

In the following week, Gu Xizhou saw Ding Han’s mother every day.
She was looking for her child like crazy and came every day.

Ding Han was long dead, but after he heard the woman’s voice, he suddenly opened his eyes.
He badly wanted to go out and tell his Mama he was here, but those plants were coiled around his body, and he couldn’t move.

“Mama! Mama, I’m here!” 

After a long time, Ding Han, who had been underwater, saw the familiar face of a child.

The beautiful little girl was ‘it’.
She said to the water, “HanHan, are you in there?”


“HanHan, will you answer me?!”

“Seems like you’re not here.
Then, I’ll leave!” The little girl was discouraged and left the edge of the pond. 

When Ding Han saw his classmate, he seemed to cry.
Gu Xizhou didn’t know if ghosts could shed tears, but he could feel Ding Han’s grief.

Outside, the sunlight was dazzling, but Ding Han felt very cold in the water.

It was quite odd.
He knew he was already dead and wanted to leave, but he remembered he told his mother he would go home today.

Soon, Ding Han seemed to transform into a kind of spirit.
His spirit could leave the water, but no one could see him.
Every day, he followed his mother to take the bus to the school and pick him up.
However, as the beautiful woman continued to fail to retrieve Ding Han, her eyes grew more and more lifeless. 

Mama’s very sad! She wasn’t like this before!

Was it because he was naughty and didn’t listen to Mama?

Ding Han thought.

He seemed to become a shadow, always following the woman.
Every day, he watched his mother hold a photograph and weep. 

“It’s all Mother’s fault.
Mother was late, so this kind of thing happened.
It’s all Mother’s fault…”

The tiny Ding Han was flustered as he looked at his mother and shouted, “Mama got hit by a car after being harassed by a pervert! Mama wasn’t late! It’s not Mama’s fault! I fell into the water myself!”

The ghost tried to wipe the tears stains on the woman’ face, but his hand went right through the woman’s cheek.

“Mama! Mama! Why can’t you see me!” Ding Han cried urgently. 

From then on, the woman went to school every day to bring Ding Han home, and Ding Han followed at her heels all day long, hoping his mother would see him.

The woman never knew that her child was always by her side.

After a long time, Ding Han didn’t want to see his mother continue to blame herself.
His soul returned to the pond, and he watched the sun rise and set every day, awaiting the day someone would find his body.

Then, Gu Xizhou returned to the brightly lit and luxurious villa.
Before he recovered, he suddenly heard a loud bang outside the villa!
