Ch55 – Are You Taking Me as a Fool?
After they heard the loud boom, Gu Xizhou and Fang Zhi hastily rose and ran up the stairs to the small open garden on the second floor of Si Yu’s home.
Si Yu’s home was on the outskirts of Ningqing, where there were several gates.
Among these was the Scenic District 5A entrance gate.
Si Yu’s villa was built, with many other villas, in Scenic District 5A, which was much more expensive than other areas in Ningqing.
Because it was such a high-grade villa, the driveway wasn’t narrow.
Cars could be parked in the villa’s yard as well as the garage in front of the villa.
Gu Xizhou looked downstairs into Si Yu’s yard and saw a land rover and a red maserati that had collided.
The red maserati parked steadily, and a beautiful woman exited the vehicle with precise movements.
The woman didn’t pay any mind to the damage suffered by the car.
She didn’t even look at her maserati.
She walked directly to the door, knocked, and yelled, “Excuse me, is someone home? I hit your car! I have to trouble you to come out!”
“This woman is a street killer! The road is so wide, and my car was parked in your yard, yet she still managed to hit it! It’s unbelievable!” Gu Xizhou returned to the studio on the second floor and said, “I’ll go down and open the door for her.”
Si Yu sat on the sofa wearing a coat.
He leaned against the sofa with a muddled brain and nodded, agreeing thoughtlessly.
Gu Xizhou went downstairs and opened the door.
The woman at the door looked surprised to see him.
She looked up at the villa’s address as if wanting to confirm something.
A moment later, she opened her mouth to speak.
“Hello, I just hit the owner’s car.
Could I trouble you to call out the master of the house?”
Gu Xizhou heard her words and grinned, asking, “How do you know I’m not the owner?”
“Ah, I’ve seen him before,” the woman explained, with a tone as pleasant as a black-naped oriole.
“Can I trouble you to call him?”
Gu Xizhou glanced back at the stairs and said indifferently, “He’s not feeling well.
He’s still upstairs.”
“Really?” The woman poked her head inside to look at the stairs.
She was a little disappointed.
Then, she said to Gu Xizhou, “Then how about I call someone to take the car to a repair shop and send it back to him afterwards? Could I trouble you to give me the owner’s contact details?”
“Oh,” After he heard her, Gu Xizhou fished his phone out from his pocket and asked the woman, “What’s your phone number?”
The woman stared blankly for a moment before reciting a string of numbers.
Gu Xizhou tapped in the digits then pressed the dial key to call the woman.
Then he hung up and put his phone back in his pocket, saying, “Okay.”
After seeing Gu Xizhou’s actions, the woman was stunned.
She seemed to summon her courage as she asked, “I wanted the vehicle owner’s number…”
“I’m the owner,” Gu Xizhou said, leaning against the doorframe.
Gu Xizhou watched the woman’s expression turn rigid.
For a moment, the woman timidly lowered her head.
She cleared her throat and said, “I’m sorry, I wasn’t careful while driving and hit your car just now.
It wasn’t on purpose.
Um… I, I… I have another matter.
I gave you my contact details.
How much will it cost to repair? Tell me and I’ll transfer it to you directly!”
Gu Xizhou watched as she hastily retreated in her high-heeled shoes, running back to her car.
He looked down at the number in his cellphone thoughtfully.
Gu Xizhou went upstairs.
Si Yu, still on the sofa, quietly asked about what happened outside.

“I figured it out.” One side of Gu Xizhou’s mouth slanted upward.
“She’s not a street killer.
She wants a certain someone’s contact details.”
Si Yu: “…I don’t know her.”
“You don’t have to explain.
Your face brings calamity.” Gu Xizhou showed an understanding expression.
Si Yu: “……”
Gu Xizhou spoke again.
“Say, if she’s a rich second generation, how could she fail to recognize the car?! You’re a big local tyrant! How could you drive my little beaten up car?”
Si Yu said very naturally, “I don’t drive cars in that price range.”
Gu Xizhou: Local tyrant, your disdainful appearance is so dignified, oh! Let me applaud you, clap clap clap clap!
Si Yu saw that his attack had won, and he recalled when Gu Xizhou made him speechless in the mission world.
The corners of his mouth quirked up.
However, he was still a little tired.
Gu Xizhou noticed his pale face and red cheeks and asked, “Do you have any medicine at home?”
“No.” Si Yu leaned back on the sofa with exhaustion, and his eyes drooped.
His whole body was out of sorts, and his speech was feeble.
Gu Xizhou used his hand to feel Si Yu’s forehead and said, “Your body temperature is still very high.
How about I take you to the hospital, ba.”
“No need… I’ll just sit for a while.” Si Yu waved his hand.
“You did a good job in this mission world.”
Gu Xizhou smiled widely.
“This was Fang Zhi’s second mission world, so it was quite simple.
That child had been trapped in the water the whole time.
Despite believing that those trapped in the chalk outline would die and those who were ‘it’ would die, he never wanted to kill anyone.”
Si Yu sighed, “Yes, he slipped and fell into the pool, and he was only a child.
He didn’t want to harm anyone.
Because of his mother, he couldn’t leave, so he became a ghost.”
He remembered seeing Ding Han before his death, sitting in the classroom and talking to the pretty little girl.
He could run, jump, and walk.
He spoke with a childish tone that was especially cute.
After a short silence, Gu Xizhou nodded.
Beside them, Fang Zhi listened to the two speak.
He thought of Ding Han’s last words to his mother and recalled his own mother lost to illness.
He thought he’d finished grieving his mother a long time ago, but unexpectedly the scene evoked his memories of the past.
For a little while, his chest was stuffy, and his heart ached.
“Are you all right, ba?” Gu Xizhou said.
Fang Zhi shook his head.
His eyes were red, and he couldn’t speak.
A moment later–
“Actually, there was another setting in that world.” Si Yu mentioned drily.
“On the first day, when we took the bus, you drove away that pervert.
Therefore, the woman didn’t have to get off the bus because of him.
In the next few days, she showed up at the gate as usual.”
Gu Xizhou reached out and picked up the coffee on the table.
He was silent for a moment before asking, “If that’s the case, what would have happened if we hadn’t interfered?”
Si Yu said indifferently, “Then she might not have appeared at the school gate at all.”
Fang Zhi gulped and asked, “Then, once we found that child… he would have…”
Si Yu raised his eyebrows, speaking carelessly: “He probably would have gone berserk, ba.”
Fang Zhi: Sudden fear.
Gu Xizhou: “……” Fortunately, he helped the woman.
Otherwise, he would have had to viciously beat the pitiful little ghost in the middle of the street.
After Gu Xizhou confirmed Si Yu was alright, he ate lunch and sat down for a while.
Then, Gu Xizhou drove Fang Zhi straight home.
When the car was about to reach Fang Zhi’s house, he pointed at a corner outside and said to Gu Xizhou, “Gu Ge, you can drop me off there.
I want to walk.”
“Oh, okay.” Gu Xizhou acquiesced with a nod, staying silent.
Afterward, he drove his damaged Land Rover to the repair shop.
As he drove into the shop, Gu Xizhou felt the employees’ eyes were shining as they watched his car.
“Sir, this car will cost tens of thousands to repair!”
Gu Xizhou raised an eyebrow.
“Tens of thousands? It’s so expensive?”
The worker laughed, hehe, “Sir, what’s the price? The top configuration of this Land Rover you drive is almost three million.
Isn’t it normal to cost tens of thousands for repair?”
“Wait, this car costs three million?” Gu Xizhou asked anxiously, raising his eyebrows and grabbing onto the shop worker in front of him.
The mechanic nodded firmly at Gu Xizhou and said, “I’m sure.
All the cars we repair here are high-end models.
I’ve repaired a lot of cars like yours.
I’m sure I wouldn’t make a mistake!”
“Sir, does this car belong to someone at home? You don’t even know the price?”
Gu Xizhou nodded helplessly, bewildered.
He looked down and fished out his cellphone to search.
Gu Xizhou’s finger streaked across the cell phone screen.
He compared his damaged car with the full Land Rover specs for a moment.
They were exactly the same.
Gu Xizhou: …….
Then, the rich second generation who failed to recognize the car’s value– was him… He’s the one who failed to admit his mistake!
Originally, he thought Gu Ji Ji’s car would cost a maximum of thirty or forty thousand.
He absolutely didn’t expect the car to actually cost three million!
He recalled Si Yu’s previous words. “I don’t drive cars in that price range.” Gu Xizhou suddenly wanted to kill the local tyrant.
This was a three million dollar car, and he was unwilling to drive it! Alright, you can drive a plane! A one hundred million one, go out and be all flashy.
Gu Xizhou left the 4S store and went straight home.
He shoved open the door forcefully, and it banged against the wall.
Gu Xizhou closed the door behind him and locked it.
He marched inside and sat on the sofa.
Although he couldn’t see anyone, he guessed that Gu Ji Ji was now sitting beside him.
“Gu Ji Ji… It’s said that ordinary renters have a monthly income of 10,000 in dead wages on average.
Why do you drive a car worth three million?!”
The pen on the desk hesitated for a moment and wrote– what car worth three million?
“Don’t play dumb! Today, the car got hit, and I took it to a repair shop.
The shop mechanics have seen so many cars, they definitely won’t be mistaken.
Don’t think you can deceive me!”
Gu Ji Ji: En… That car is what I sold my house to buy.”
Gu Xizhou: “Are you taking me as a fool…”
Gu Ji Ji: I am.
Gu Xizhou: “……”
Gu Xizhou: “I don’t believe you.
You’re definitely a local tyrant, Ji Ji!”
Gu Ji Ji: Hehe, believe it or don’t.
After a short silence, Gu Xizhou saw that Gu Ji Ji was ignoring him.
Gu Xizhou looked around and saw nothing.
Finally, weary and tired to death, he sat on his bed, disheartened.
As Gu Xizhou was sitting on the bed and feeling down, his head was suddenly rubbed by someone.
Gu Xizhou was silent for a moment, then he asked the owner of the hand: “Did you really buy the car after selling your house?”
Gu Ji Ji: Yes.
Gu Xizhou: “……”
There was a note put into the palm of his hand, and written on it was– Go to work steadily, behave with diligence and integrity, and don’t have such an active imagination.
The author has something to say: Gu Ji Ji: That’s right, yo, I fooled you ╭(╯^╰)╮
