Ch 53: A crowd of evil spirit lines up to confess to me (3/4)
Chapter 53: This person is the real monster! (part 3 of 4)
As the group were walking up from the third floor to the fourth floor, the chilling feeling around them grew stronger. Various bloodstains appeared on both sides of the wall, striking fear inside people’s heart with just a glance.
The director’s office was right there. But just as Gu Wuji pushed the door open, a dark shadow suddenly rushed in.
The monster behind Gu Wuji immediately roared and rushed in.
“It’s that malicious spirit from before!” Gu Wuji was the one who instantly realized this.
“Hold up! Since he showed up again, will there be any traps ahead?” Hong ge worriedly asked, “He obviously couldn’t match-, couldn’t match up to Goldie a while ago. Yet he shows no fear now?”
“We can’t do anything even if there’s a trap.” Gu Wuji took out the rope, “You guys keep an eye on the situation outside…… I’ll head in first.”
Gu Wuji, who went in the director’s office, discovered that the male ghost, which had already been forced into a corner, looked at the monster like facing an enemy.
Having seen this situation, Gu Wuji held out the rope, as he made his way over, “I really don’t want to do anything to you. I just want to ask some questions. It would be great if you could answer them honestly.”
Needless to say, this rope was just prepared to ensure that the two of them will have a harmonious conversation, and was definitely not something like a mean to implement violence.
The male ghost didn’t say anything, and only kept his head down. When the distance between Gu Wuji and him drew close, he suddenly raised his head, and coldly looked over with a malicious gaze in his eyes. In the next moment, he extended his only intact arm, and abruptly grabbed a hold of Gu Wuji.
At this moment, Gu Wuji only felt his surrounding abruptly darkened, and heard the monster’s angry roar and the startled cry of Hong ge and xiao Liu. But those voices quickly faded away, as if it came from another dimension.
In this dark space, he seems to be inside some kind of room.
There were blooming spring flowers outside. In front of the window is a young man dressed in a white shirt. He stood in front of an easel. The atmosphere of this scene can be said to be completely opposite from the instance.
Gu Wuji could only see his back, as well as the fine slender hand holding the paintbrush. The other person’s very attractive temperament can already be seen from just these areas alone.
Nonetheless, this scene which should have obviously been filled with peace, strangely exudes a somewhat dangerous feeling.
The moment Gu Wuji uttered this words, the other person seemed to turn his head, but it was at this moment when the surrounding’s scene instantly became blurry, and quickly faded away like soap bubbles.
By the time his vision had cleared, he found himself inside a pure white space, facing that male malicious spirit.
Gu Wuji already had a faint guess who that man, he saw in the illusion a moment ago really was……
In this world, the male malicious spirit was impeccably dressed, and seemed to look like some successful person. Apart from having a somewhat pale face, and one arm missing. There were no other differences at all. He was just like a real living person.
“It’s you.” Gu Wuji could tell at a glance, that this person was the one who came out when he searched through his mobile phone before. That person, who after sending his friend to a psychiatric hospital, had actually won success and recognition as a painter, was called Wei An.
“It seems like you recognized me.” Wei An’s ghost reached out and straightened his necktie, with an arrogant expression, “I was a well-known painter after all. So, it’s quite normal for an ordinary person like you to recognize me. Had it not been for my untimely death, I would have certainly been more famous than now.”
“Is this world inside the painting?” Gu Wuji examined his surroundings, then thought back to the things he saw when he entered the door to the director’s office before. There really was a blank painting on the wall, which seemed to be waiting for a certain person to fill it.
It seems that he still acted too impulsively. But being able to interact with this ghost alone wasn’t a bad deal as well. In any case, the end result was still the same.
“That’s right, this place is my home field.” Wei An sneered as he looked at Gu Wuji, “You can’t control that monster outside from this place. Now, you are nothing more than an ordinary human, who can only be slaughtered by me.”
This was also the reason why he dared to rampantly appear in front of Gu Wuji and the others. As long as he kills this person in front of him, that monster would definitely leave after losing it’s master. Afterwards, killing those two living people would naturally be a breeze.
Thinking back to himself sourly suffering from defeat after defeat a while ago because of that monster outside, then looking back at Gu Wuji, who didn’t have a bit of force value, made Wei An expose an elated gaze.
“.…..but don’t worry. Since you have such a good appearance, I will set up a better method of death for you. That would surely be a beautiful painting, and may become the best masterpiece in my life.”
Having heard his words, Gu Wuji suddenly realized something, “Were you the one who made all the portraits in the ward downstairs?”
“That’s right.” Wei An said with a sneer, “Not bad right? In becoming a part of my painting, you guys will still be able to earn money even after death.”
Due to the absence of the monster’s threat, he had already regarded Gu Wuji, who was in front of him as a corpse. So, he’d naturally have a carefree mood in chatting with the other person in this place.
“Is that so? No wonder it looks so mediocre……” Gu Wuji frowned.
But it really was true. Those portraits on the third floor and the painting on the walls of the first floor, really didn’t have the signature of that artist under the bed, and seem to have not been created by the same person. So that’s why he felt something off before.
“It also gives a different feeling from those paintings I looked up before.” Gu Wuji looked at Wei An, and said with a pensive look, “So that’s it. All those paintings of yours, had surely been stolen from your friend, right?”
Wei An’s expression darkened. Due to intense fury, his entire being also turned terrifying from the appearance of an ordinary young man just a moment ago, “Do all of you only know how to pay attention to him? I’m clearly more outstanding! Yet none of you knows how to appreciate it at all…… I originally thought that you would be different from those people. But it seems that you’re also one of those tasteless people. But no matter, you will shut your mouth soon!”
As his voice fell, the ground next to his feet was already stained bright red with blood, which constantly spread towards Gu Wuji’s side. Wei An unhurriedly walked towards him, with a sneer on his face, as he reached out to grab Gu Wuji’s neck.
