Ch 73: A crowd of evil spirit lines up to confess to me (1/4)
Chapter 73: 6th instance: They were already aware of Qi Yunxiu being a gay guy, okay! (part 1 of 4)
The instant the other party grabbed Gu Wuji’s hand, the attention of those surrounding skeleton seemed to have instantly been shifted. They no longer continued to stare at Gu Wuji, and just continued moving onward with vacant expressions.
Gu Wuji went against the flow to follow the bridal attired female ghost, with a lot of doubts in his mind, and as a person who would never bury the doubts in his heart, he immediately asked: “Who are you really?”
The other part shook her head.
Gu Wuji spoke once more: “Thank you very much for saving me.”
The other party was silent this time and still didn’t she turn around, but merely whispered: “You should leave this place.”
“Something bad will happen if you stay here. That ceremony is far more terrifying than you guys think, ordinary people will never be able to stop it. If you want to survive, then you should leave this place before the ceremony is held.” The bridal attired female ghost said, “I know the way to get out from this village quietly, so leave with the others tomorrow.”
Gu Wuji said: “But I don’t have any way to leave, and I also don’t want to leave. Since I’m already here, then I must find out the actual facts of everything. I know that since you saved me, then you definitely hope that I can do something.”
The other party had visibly stiffened, and had apparently not expected Gu Wuji to actually say such a thing. She sighed somewhat helplessly, before finally turning around to face him.
“Since you’ve thought of this, then that might really be the case. Maybe…… I really am looking forward to what you can do.”
The female ghost who appeared before Gu Wuji still had her face covered with mist. Although there wasn’t much visibility, but he could vaguely make out the other party’s expression.
“As expected, you’re this kind of person. After all, only a person like you can also let this village truly change…… It’s unfortunate, that everything is already too late.” The female ghost faintly said, “The only thing I can tell you is, once that ceremony finally begins……”
Gu Wuji looked at the other party with a bit of surprise. The other party still seemed to be saying something, but he could no longer hear the following words.
Just like the time they first met in the dream.
He wanted to ask again, but felt a sense of heaviness, that even his consciousness started to blur. As for the female ghost in front, her figure had already been obscured by the mist.
Upon waking up, Gu Wuji realized that it was already very bright outside.
Qi Yunxiu, who was sitting next to him, was looking at him fixedly, the ghosts on the side immediately showed a relieved expression upon seeing Gu Wuji wake up.
That Gu Wuji couldn’t help but ask: “What happened?”
“You suddenly fell asleep, and wouldn’t wake up no matter what.” Qi Yunxiu breathed a sigh of relief, “I thought something had happened to you. These ghosts must have also been worried about you.”
In fact, having initially thought that these ghosts had done something underhanded, Qi Yunxiu stated that if Gu Wuji doesn’t wake up, then they would all be buried with him.
These group of ghosts simply felt extremely wronged deep down. Where would they have the guts to do something underhanded to these two fiends at this time? That’s just like rushing to their deaths, alright!
After experiencing such a frightening and feeling on the edge in the middle of the night, Gu Wuji woke up at long last, which finally made these ghosts see the hope of living, and made them cherish their lives even more.
Gu Wuji didn’t know any of this, so he turned to this ghosts with a very touched expression, “Although we’ve only met for one night, but I never expected you to be this worried about me. It’s just a pity that we might never have a chance to see each other again.”
This group of ghosts simply couldn’t be any happier upon hearing Gu Wuji’s words. They really didn’t want to see Gu Wuji again, okay!
But before they could show their happiness, they immediately noticed Qi Yunxiu’s ice-cold gaze, so they immediately changed their words: “We’re also really regretful of this. But hey, the time is too hasty.”
“When you come again next time, we’ll certainly entertain you properly.”
One of the ghost had even shed tears, then hurriedly said: “I really don’t want to be separated from you, this night was the happiest time I ever had after my death.”
Upon hearing this, Gu Wuji became even more touched, feeling that even in such a village, the ghosts in the murder house were actually very amiable.
After those two persons had left, the door of this house were immediately sealed shut.
The ghosts here probably wouldn’t dare to provoke any living outsiders for a few years.
The day was already very bright, as Gu Wuji was still entangling whether to still proceed to the village chief’s house, an aunt came over to talk to him.
“Sun Shi, ah. Why are you still here? I saw the village chief heading to your place for something. Could you have already finished your business?”
“What?” Gu Wuji immediately looked at the other, “What’s the village chief going in our place for?”
The other party was somewhat startled, “Oh, were you still unaware? The ceremony is about to be held after all. The village chief said that since it’s rare for outsiders to come, and would naturally want you guys to participate in it. That’s what he’s going over to discuss about now.”
“Oh, oh that’s right. We went out for a walk early in the morning, so we must have missed it.” Gu Wuji quickly thought of a way to end the topic, then turned to Qi Yunxiu beside him, and whispered: “It seems like the village chief is finally going to start doing something. After all, Xiao Meng is the bride they chose, so something will certainly happen to her today.”
Being also aware of this point, Qi Yunxiu knitted his brows, “Then should we quickly head back?”
Truth be told, he really doesn’t care about the lives of the other players aside from Gu Wuji. In any case, as a player taking part in this instances, they will die sooner or later. So, what’s there to be concerned about? But since this might be related to the mainline task and Gu Wuji’s safety, so he had to think about it.
“No, you head back first.” Gu Wuji said: “I still want to take a look at the village chief’s house. I also don’t think it’s possible for the village chief to take action in such a short while. You can help keep an eye over the things there for me, while I go investigate some things.”
Although Qi Yunxiu was slightly against this, but Gu Wuji was very adamant in his thoughts. Besides, if the village chief goes back ahead of time, then Gu Wuji would be placed in danger, thus, Qi Yunxiu immediately parted ways with Gu Wuji, and hurried back to their place.
