ave to talk about the investigation situation, and we can leave, right?”

“I don’t think it’s that simple.” Gu Xizhou pinched his brows and said, “Isn’t it too simple like this?”

Xiao Nan waved his hand and said, “Where is this simple? We already had a death! Is it bad to end like this? Moreover, this is one of the first few words, right? I don’t think it should be too difficult.” 

“Maybe, ba.” Gu Xizhou pondered and said, “First, let’s go tell that old man what Xu San’er told us.”

“Like this…” Yu Yizhou unexpectedly felt disappointed.
“I still haven’t properly experienced the feeling of being able to walk and jump like this yet…”

“You don’t need to worry about that.” Si Yu casually replied to Yu Yizhou.
“As long as you can pass the first and subsequent mission worlds, your cause of death can also change.
I’ve met a few people like you who were sent to the hospital after falling ill.
They all experienced a spontaneous recovery.
Then, like most of us, their cause of death becomes a fatal accident.”

Yu Yizhou’s attention was seized by Si Yu, and he immediately asked with agitation, “Really? It’s like this? Then after I go out, I can eat something? I could eat something?” 

“I don’t know.
I can only tell you exactly that your illness can recover,” Si Yu said mildly.

The group walked the whole way back to Old Man Mo’s door.
Gu Xizhou swept his eyes over the forbiddingly closed door and knocked on it.

After waiting for the old man to come out, Si Yu directly got to the point and told the old man the outcome of their investigation.
The old man smiled strangely, the corners of his mouth splitting open in a bizarre arc.
It looked very frightening.
He said darkly, “Thank you.”

Xiao Nan instantly became excited when he heard the old man.
He thought the old man would transform into the door, but instead the man just slammed the door. 

“W-why didn’t he take the door out?” Xiao Nan asked, feeling unwell.

Gu Xizhou swept a look at him.
“I said it wasn’t that simple.”

Xiao Nan was like a dejected rooster.

The night was uneventful. 

They had yet to go downstairs when they heard a ruckus outside.
All of Citrine Village’s residents came out.

The group all heard the noisy racket outside and got out of bed.
After washing up simply, Gu Xizhou left the room with the others.
Before leaving, he intended to check the number of people.
Good, all five were here without lacking an arm nor a leg.


Wang Chunjiao stood in the middle of the crowd and blocked her eyes, peeking out from a crack between her fingers at the dead body on the ground.

“Heavens, ah.
Who is that, ah? Isn’t it too dreadful, ba?” 

“Who could be so deranged, ah?”

Gu Xizhou and the rest parted the crowd and eventually clearly saw the state of the corpse on the ground.
A human head was placed on the floor and beside it was a dead pig without a head.

Blood covered the floor completely.
Gu Xizhou found Xu Hao standing in the center of the onlookers.
Xu Hao was trembling with fear as he looked at the head on the ground.
Suddenly, he turned around and ran away with a shriek!

Gu Xizhou and the others wanted to give chase when they unexpectedly heard the sound of a stomach growling, gulu gulu.  

Gu Xizhou subconsciously turned his head and saw that the head on the ground had suddenly opened its eyes, rigidly staring in the direction of Xu Hao’s departure with malevolence and a strange smile on its bloody face.

“Ahhh——” This was Yu Yizhou’s first time coming in contact with the supernatural.
His complexion was painted white, and his hand tightly grabbed Gu Xizhou’s clothes beside him.
He trembled as he said, “H-he’s smiling.”

“I’m not blind.
I see it.”

Yu Yizhou avoided the head’s line of sight.
He asked Gu Xizhou in a low voice, “A-aren’t you scared?” 

“Still okay, ba.
Seen it several times,” said Gu Xizhou casually, raising his eyebrows.

Si Yu’s expression was also very flat.
The only people who could have a common topic with Yu Yizhou were Xiao Nan and Fang Zhi.

“The butcher died.
Apparently he really did have something to do with Old Lady He’s disappearance.” Gu Xizhou frowned and said, “but the door didn’t show up.”

“What do we do now?” 

Gu Xizhou watched Si Yu.
The two people made eye contact.
Si Yu’s lips curled and he said, “Don’t know.
Let’s go find that old man first.”

“Okay, I’ll listen to you,” said Gu Xizhou.

The group went straight to the old man’s house.
When they knocked on the door, it opened with a creak.

The old man didn’t seem to be at home.
Gu Xizhou and Si Yu looked at each other and made a plan.
“Let’s go in and take a look!” 

“Would… would there be an accident, ah?” Xiao Nan said hesitantly.

“If you can’t part with the child, you can’t catch the wolf. The door still hasn’t appeared, so there’s definitely a problem we didn’t expect,” said Gu Xizhou, raising an eyebrow.
“Go in and have a look.
Maybe there are some clues.”


Xiao Nan was still hesitant when Yu Yizhou raised his hand and said weakly, “I think Gu Ge is right…”

Xiao Nan looked silently at the big foolish husky in front of him.
It was obvious Gu Ran’s group of three were together at first sight.
Isn’t this guy quite obedient? 

Xiao Nan helplessly followed Gu Xizhou and the others into the room.

As soon as they entered the courtyard, everyone automatically furrowed their brows.
Somewhere in the house, something with a foul odor assailed their noses from a distance.

Gu Xizhou and Fang Zhi exchanged glances.
They were very familiar with this smell——This was the smell of a corpse’s stench.
