Ch70 – Simple Request
Edited by: Dust Bunny
Gu Xizhou looked at its startled expression and arrogantly waved his fist, smashing its face.
“Want to scare me?”
“Just now, I really wanted to beat someone up.” Gu Xizhou raised his eyebrows.
“If it weren’t for Si Yu and the others watching, I would have already done it.”
After being beaten by a strong and sturdy fist, it hurt all over, it hurt so much.
The one in front of him seemed inhuman.
He squeezed its body like he wanted to crush it to pieces.
“You… you’re not human!”
A foot kicked the ghost’s body, and Gu Xizhou pointed at his face.
He said with great emphasis, “I am human.”
It: “……” Compared to you, I’m more like a human.
Because they had been chased by a ghost just now, on top of Xia Hang’s death, everyone’s mood was very depressed.
None of the group spoke.
Si Yu held the black umbrella and inspected it.
Cheng Yue asked, “Gu Ran still hasn’t come out? He didn’t have an accident, did he?”
“The one who has an accident won’t be him.”
Listening to Si Yu, Cheng Yue looked slightly confused.
“Is he really powerful?”
“It’s not that…” Si Yu smiled, recalling the scene in the second world of Gu Xizhou strangling the ghost.
Cheng Yue: “It seems like there was a punching noise inside the bathroom.
He probably hasn’t had an accident, right?”
“I’ll go in and take a look!” Fang Zhi said anxiously.
He was just about to go in when he heard Si Yu say abruptly, “Let’s go together.”
Fang Zhi nodded.
When the others heard the sound from the restroom, they all felt their hair stand on end.
The timid ones even screamed.
Among those were Xiao Yue and Bai Dongyang.
Ever since Bai Dongyang saw the ghost impersonating him, his mental state was terrible.
He looked like he could have a breakdown at any moment.
Don’t mention entering the toilet, he was even having trouble walking.
Pushing open the bathroom door, Si Yu, Fang Zhi, and Cheng Yue went in together.
Right away, they saw blood on the floor.
The blood directly spread over to their feet.
A strange sound rang out from a closed stall, like a desperate cry for help.
“Gu Ran is gone, and blood is flowing from the bathroom.
It seems like something’s inside?” said Cheng Yue with a gulp.
He pointed at the pool of blood on the ground and curled his hand into a tight fist.
Si Yu naturally noticed these things, but he didn’t answer Cheng Yue.
“I’ll open the door.
If something goes wrong, run away.”
“Gu Ge… Gu Ge!” Fang Zhi anxiously yelled Gu Xizhou’s name.
Gu Xizhou looked down at the miserable thing and raised his brows.
It: “……” I’m saved…
Si Yu had just walked over to the closed door and was about to open it when it was suddenly pushed open, and a person came out from inside.
Gu Xizhou shook his bloody hand as he came out.
With an expression of feigned innocence, he asked, “Why did you come in?”
Cheng Yue looked at the strange scene inside the bathroom and was obviously very afraid.
With a trembling voice, he asked, “Why is your hand covered in so much blood?”
Gu Xizhou took a step forward, and Cheng Yue immediately retreated back.
Gu Xizhou was forced to stay put.
He looked at Si Yu and Fang Zhi and asked, “Do you need me to recite society’s core values?”
We’re sorry for MTLers or people who like using reading mode, but our translations keep getting stolen by aggregators so we’re going to bring back the copy protection.
If you need to MTL please retype the gibberish parts.
Si Yu: “……” It’s the same thing every time.

Gu Xizhou heard him and looked at Fang Zhi affectionately.
He said, “Don’t worry, I didn’t take the path of death.
Even if I were facing a ghost alone, it wouldn’t be able to kill me.”
“Right, ba?” Gu Xizhou looked at Si Yu.
Si Yu: “En.”
The ghost who still hadn’t left: “……” Your appearance when you beat me up was even more ruthless than those people who stabbed me to pieces.
Gu Xizhou went to the sink and saw Cheng Yue, who looked like he wanted to investigate the stall.
He raised his eyebrows and said, “Just now, I heard a sound, and as soon as I entered both walls began to drip with blood.
It was very scary.
Be careful, or you won’t be able to sleep at night.”
“So it turns out… if it’s like this, then I’d better not look.”
Gu Xizhou continued, “It’s definitely that one ghost who wanted to scare me just now! It’s gone too far!”
It: “……” I was scared by you in the end, okay!
“Let’s go back.” Si Yu glanced at Gu Xizhou’s hands, already clean.
“In the future, do it faster.
Those two girls are faster than you.”
Gu Xizhou said, “A man must not be quick!”
Si Yu: “……” I now seriously doubt the quality of the nation’s police officers!
Fang Zhi’s face turned red, and he choked.
The group left together.
Outside, it was still raining, and it didn’t seem like it was going to stop any time soon.
Although the umbrella was quite big, it could only shelter a maximum of five people at any given time, and they now had eight people.
Si Yu said, “You two female students, Cheng Yue, and Bai Dongyang, go to the dining hall first.
I’ll go with you.”
“Holding up the umbrella?” Bai Dongyang said, somewhat hesitant.
“Is there anything wrong with this umbrella? Maybe it’s fine to use it, but what if we do and it causes an accident?”
All of those students are holding umbrellas,” explained Si Yu.
Then he said to Gu Xizhou, “You stay behind and look after those two, alright?”
Hearing Si Yu speak like this, Gu Xizhou spread his hands and said helplessly, “You’ve arranged it, of course I have no problem.”
Following the group setting off into the rain with his eyes, Gu Xizhou leaned against the wall with his hands in his pockets and sneezed.
The torrential rain had already passed, and now the pounding rain was gradually lessening with a “Xi Xi Li Li”
After about 7 or 8 minutes passed, Si Yu slowly returned with the umbrella to the three people who stayed behind.
Raindrops fell onto the surface of the black umbrella with sputtering drips.
Gu Xizhou saw Si Yu in the distance and waved him over.
Leaving the school building, Gu Xizhou’s group of four went straight to the dining hall for a meal.
After eating, their hunger didn’t wane and instead increased more and more.
Gu Xizhou lamented, “How can I find the door? I’m going to starve to death soon.”
Si Yu bowed his head to eat, looking at him out of the corner of his eye.
“You believe me?”
Si Yu seemed very satisfied with Gu Xizhou’s response, and he raised the corner of his mouth.
“Okay then, we can leave tomorrow.”
“You said it! Fortunately…” Gu Xizhou let out a long breath.
Fortunately, Si Yu and the others had come in quickly just now and interrupted his plans to interrogate that ghost via torture.
It shouldn’t be regarded as cheating like this!
Si Yu raised his eyes to look at him and said, “Fortunately what?”
“Fortunately, I’m following you.”
“……” Si Yu kneaded his forehead.
“Hurry up and eat something.”
“Okay okay okay! Eat! When we leave, treat us to a meal! Something expensive!” Gu Xizhou readily decided.
Si Yu looked at Gu Xizhou with an expression that said “how could there be such a rogue in the world”.
After dinner, they returned to the dormitory.
Because the dormitory only had three floors, then nothing was likely to happen as long as they kept the lights on.
Now, Gu Xizhou and the others returned to their room.
After a simple wash, Gu Xizhou lay down in bed.
There were no strange footsteps inside the room, and there was no weird laughter either.
If they shut off the light, they would see yesterday’s clever ghost sitting on the chair in their dorm, quiet as a chicken.
After a dreamless sleep, Gu Xizhou and the others ate breakfast and immediately went to the dorm supervisor to read today’s newspaper.
‘Young Woman Imprisoned in Dark Room Built Inside Man’s Home, Woman Died, Deceased’s Identity Undetermined.’
While the others remained in the dormitory, Gu Xizhou was directly dragged under the umbrella by Si Yu to go to the school building.
“What is this for?” Gu Xizhou asked.
“To look for that one NPC.”
“Look for her?”
SI Yu interrupted him, “The real Su Xiaomian’s request is very simple.”
Si Yu pointed at the newspaper and said, “She only wants her identity confirmed.”
“Her identity confirmed? How do we do that?” Gu Xizhou was confused.
Si Yu said, “So long as that one NPC admits in front of others that she isn’t Su Xiaomian, then it’s fine.”
“She’ll admit that she isn’t Su Xiaomian, then Su Xiaomian’s family… no, she shouldn’t have any family, only friends.
If it’s determined that the NPC isn’t Su Xiaomian, then a missing persons report is set up at the police station, then the identity of the deceased could definitely be ascertained.” Gu Xizhou realized what Si Yu’s plan was at once.
As they went into the rain, Gu Xizhou followed after Si Yu as they quickly went to the front of the school building.
The two first determined that Su Xiaomian was working inside her office.
Then, Si Yu found two students, one male and one female, inside the school building.
Gu Xizhou saw the goods walking over gracefully with an especially infectious smile.
“Hello, there’s a Teacher Su inside the office who wants to ask for your help.
Can you take me to her office?”
The two students were starstruck for a moment, then they nodded.
Gu Xizhou noticed a man covered in blood in the distance looking at him.
His expression was very brilliant, fiercely glaring at Gu Xizhou.
Gu Xizhou turned around and stared back in an instant.
The bloodsoaked man fearfully moved his eyes away from Gu Xizhou’s face.
The two of them took the two students into the NPC’s office.
The two students were confused.
“Where’s the teacher you were talking about?”
Su Xiaomian heard these words and was struck dumb.
Looking at Gu Xizhou and Si Yu, she anxiously began to cry.
“They-they can’t see me?” The NPC pointed at the woman in the photo and wept.
“Is she… really replacing me?”
Si Yu took a step forward and picked up the photo.
He said, “If you actually switched with her, then tell them you aren’t Su Xiaomian.
Tell them your real name.”
“Wh-what are you talking about?” The woman looked frightened.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about!”
Si Yu grabbed the crazed woman and said coldly, “Do you enjoy pretending to be someone else? It makes you very happy?”
“Things obtained using another’s identity will always be stolen.”
“You don’t want to…”
Si Yu interrupted her, “You can still redeem yourself now.
If you don’t admit it, she can completely replace you.
Afterwards, not only will your students be unable to see you, but they won’t even know you exist.
Neither will your family, your parents, or your partner.”
“I…” The woman broke down.
She had already been driven mad by the experience of being replaced by someone else.
Along with the collapse of her mood, she suddenly started to cry bitterly.
“Yes, you’re right.
I’m not Su Xiaomian, I’m… Yu Xue.”
The words Yu Xue had just been spoken when Gu Xizhou noticed the rain outside coming to halt.
Underneath the school building, the short-haired woman waved to Gu Xizhou and Si Yu.
Then, her body gradually faded away, transforming into a door.
Unlike the previous door, this one was open.
“The door, it’s open?” Gu Xizhou raised an eyebrow.
Si Yu looked over, and he frowned.
His words had just fallen when Gu Xizhou heard the sound of chains sliding, and it was different from the first few times.
If one were to say the first few times he heard them, it was the sound of chains and shackles, this time the chains seemed to be dragging something, then the sliding sound faded away, and the door closed.
After Gu Xizhou and Si Yu told the other teammates the good news, Cheng Yue and the others quickly left.
Among them, Bai Dongyang headed for Si Yu and whispered, “Si Ge, you’re so powerful.”
Si Yu: “En.”
“Can you tell me your real name? I want to thank you.
I still have some money,” said Bai Dongyang.
This was very obviously planning to spend money to have a bigshot carry him.
Si Yu: “It’s unnecessary.”
Bai Dongyang said anxiously, “I can give you a lot of money… I’ll pay however much! One million first! How about it?”
Si Yu: “……”
Gu Xizhou saw Bai Dongyang’s appearance and felt a little sympathy for him.
He really wanted to tell him… President Si was the king among local tyrants.
Gu Xizhou called out to Si Yu.
“I’ll leave first.
See you outside.”
He entered the door.
After the familiar dizziness, Gu Xizhou heard a voice.
The other person was talking to him.
Well, to be accurate, they were talking to Su Xiaomian.
“Xiaomian is back!” A young man tenderly said to Su Xiaomian who had just entered the door.
“Just in time.
Quick, come eat, ba!”
“Thank you, Lin San.” Su Xiaomian was exhausted.
As the two people ate, Su Xiaomian mentioned that she felt like someone was following her tonight.
Lin San was silent for a moment before he said, “Then I’ll come with you to and from work, ba.”
“Okay, thank you, husband!” Su Xiaomian said smilingly, acting coquettish.
The scene changed to Lin San accompanying Su Xiaomian to and from work.
In the process, it could be seen that they were very much in love.
One day, Su Xiaomian got off work, but her boyfriend Lin San hadn’t shown up.
Unsurprisingly, Su Xiaomian was stalked and abducted.
The man who abducted her was the one Gu Xizhou and the others saw in the photo!
