Fierce Coffin - Chapter 3
There were three people in this room: me, my wife and daughter Jiajia. Suddenly my wife and I started to suspect that Jiajia took it, but no matter how we asked, Jiajia did not admit to taking her underwear. Was it a thief who came in at night? The house didn’t look like it lost anything. Did this thief have a special hobby?
I decided not to sleep that night to see how my wife’s underwear was lost.
In this way, I stayed awake till 1 a.m., but my eyes gave up on me. I tried twisting my head, but it didn’t work. I fell asleep without knowing it. I was awoken by my wife. My wife was very scared, but she didn’t call my name. The moment I woke up, I knew something was going on.
The bedroom was illuminated by moonlight, I saw the door slowly open. A woman’s figure came into the room dazzlingly. After entering, instead of walking upright, she lay on the ground, crawled towards the bed, and went straight to my wife’s side. At the bedside next to me, she trembled in fright. As soon as I reached out, I turned on the light,and used a curse to make me bold and shouted, “Tanima!”
(T/N: ‘Tanima’ is a chinese swear word which means f*** off)
To be honest, I was frightened. But when I saw the person who climbed in, I stumbled, and it turned out to be my daughter Jiajia. But just by the moonlight, I clearly saw a woman with a height of 1.65m. I know what I saw. I wasn’t wrong either.
At this time, Jiajia had opened the bedside table, clutching my wife’s underwear. What made me even more surprised was that Jiajia had thick makeup on and looked like an adult. I asked, “Jiajia, what are you doing?”
Jiajia looked at me and laughed at this moment, the laughter was soaked and very low.
My wife understood and said to me, “Jiajia is sleepwalking, don’t call out to her. It is said that the sleepwalking child will become demented when the child wakes up.”
Unexpectedly, Jiajia spoke at this time, and she gritted her teeth and said, “If you took me out, then shouldn’t you be responsible for me?”
This sentence surprised both my wife and me. The voice clearly came from the mouth of a woman, and it didn’t sound like a three-year-old’s. My wife opened her arms at this time and said gently to Jiajia, “Jiajia, wake up, it’s your mother! Are you having nightmares?”
Jiajia stood up while holding the bed at this time. She looked at her mother and smiled disdainfully. Sitting down slowly, she said, “My feet hurt!”
Then, she lifted her legs up…
This surprised me, and suddenly I remembered my dream on the train. All of a sudden I felt cold and sweaty. If you think about the shadow of the woman you just saw, I think this matter is more problematic.
Fortunately, Jiajia’s feet were still there, attached to her body, unlike the woman in the dream who had no feet.
My wife kept calling out Jiajia’s name. Jiajia ignored her, but got out of bed and crawled out of the house with her underwear and panties.
The moment Jiajia got out of the bedroom door, I found her standing up. From the crack of the door, I saw a woman’s shadow standing outside the door. After that, she looked back at me, and then reached out her hand slowly. Then she closed the door.
I mumbled, “Am I crazy?”
“What?” My wife asked me.
I said nothing, but my heart had begun to fall. I had to associate this woman’s shadow with that luxurious coffin, and I make up to the woman in the red wedding dress.
My wife was worried about Jiajia, and she said she would sleep with Jiajia. I originally wanted to oppose her, but she got out of bed without waiting for my response. The weirdness of this matter was completely different from the time when I harvested corpses to make a living. Even if there were some things before, it all depended on one’s beliefs. But this time, I think I definitely brought back something.
I took out my cell phone and called Lao Hu, but it went as a blank call. I know, Lao Hu disappeared with his money, and he didn’t want anyone to find him. I was worried about my wife’s safety, so I went to see her and Jiajia. My wife was holding Jiajia to coax her to sleep. Jiajia, who had already closed her eyes, suddenly opened her eyes and looked at me. It wasn’t the look of a daughter looking at her dad, but the look of a woman looking at a man. Yes, she seemed to be seducing me.
As soon as I was leaving, Jiajia suddenly spoke. She reached out and pointed at the ceiling, “Dead man, leave without shoes.”
My wife said to me, “You go, it’s okay, she is dream talking probably. Let’s go to the hospital tomorrow to see what might be the problem!.”
I said, “That would be hard for you.”
“I’m fine, Xiao Yunzi. Our family depends on you for support. I really want to do more for my family.”
My wife’s virtuousness moved me, but at this time, Jiajia glanced at me again. She smiled at me, with a corner of her mouth lifted up. The smile was so weird. I was shocked as I got some goosebumps. Surely, she was possessed.
I instantly remembered that bracelet. I reached out and grabbed Jiajia’s wrist. What was unexpected was that she grabbed my wrist. I felt as if my wrist was held by a pair of iron tongs, and it caused a cold sweat.
As she slowly let go of me, I noticed that I had bruises on my wrists. But I was afraid to tell my wife.
My wife said at this time: “Xiao Yunzi, go back, I’m fine here.”
I didn’t sleep very much that evening, always ready for anything unexpected. When it was dawning, my wife came back to our bedroom. Opening the window as soon as she came back, complaining that I should not smoke so much. She went to bed and said, “Jiajia doesn’t seem to be fine. Did you hear her, she doesn’t speak right.”
I said, “What do you mean?”
“Is it possible that she is possessed?”
I said, “Wife, you are a top student in engineering. How could you believe in all this! Take her to the hospital after dawn!”
“It’s better to believe what we’re seeing than to not think anything at all!. Xiao Yunzi, according to my woman’s instinct, Jiajia is most likely possessed.”
As soon as I heard it, I felt numb and chilled. I said, “Wifey, what are you talking about?”
“Maybe it’s because I’m nervous. I will sleep for sometime.” She got under the quilt and said no more after that.
After dawn, we planned to go to the hospital to get Jiajia checked. As soon as we left the elevator, we saw a middle-aged man upstairs pushing a wheelchair of his old father. The old father’s face was covered with a yellow cloth and he was wearing a shroud. The middle-aged man stood with his family on both sides, and saw us and said, “Move aside, please!”
I immediately understood that the old man upstairs had died, and now the old man’s body was in a wheelchair. Immediately I remembered what Jiajia was pointing at and what she had said last night. I looked down, and the old man did not wear shoes, but was wearing a pair of socks.
The elevator door closed, my wife said, “Xiao Yunzi, do you remember Jiajia’s words last night?”
After speaking, the two of us looked at Jiajia, who was standing on the ground. The child stared silently at the elevator door, staring at the numbers written on it.
That’s right, Jiajia said last night that he was dead upstairs and left without shoes. Thinking about it for a while, I suddenly felt cold all over, like a ghost lying on my back making me feel the creeps.
The elevator came up again quickly. When we got downstairs, we saw the car in the crematorium parked at the entrance of the unit building, and the family was loading the body of the old man. We quickly passed by, and took a taxi to the hospital in front of the community.
At the hospital, we told the doctor that the child was sleepwalking at night, and I focused on the child’s foot pain. The doctor said to take a CT scan, so we took Jiajia for one.
During the test, the guy who was doing the scan said, “Go and see the doctor! There are indeed problems with her feet.”
I held Jiajia and quickly rushed to the doctor’s office and showed the reports to the doctor. He looked fine initially, but when he saw the feet in the reports, the doctor started scratching his head. I asked, “Doctor, what’s wrong with her feet?”
The doctor said, “This is not a disease, but there is a problem with bone density. You can see for yourself the bone density of the feet is much worse than the other places. It’s like being pressed by a pair of other people’s feet, this foot and the body location are completely different. “
The doctor pointed to the ankle position in the report and showed us, “You see, it’s obviously different. You don’t need me to say it. It can be seen by you too. It’s like a knife, even more like a pair of feet!”
My wife hurriedly said, “Yes, this child has complained about foot pain recently! What can I do? Is it because of a lack of calcium?”
The doctor said, “Don’t worry, the problem is not serious.”
Then he asked me to take off Jiajia’s shoes, and started to pinch Jiajia’s feet with hands, and then pinched Jiajia’s legs. In the end, he said, “This child’s foot bone density is much worse than in other places. It can be clearly seen in the reports, but this is not a problem.”
My wife said, “Doctor, what do you mean by that?”
“I suspect that the problem is not with the feet, because the bone density of the feet is appropriate, and the bone density in other places is too high. This is the first time I have encountered something like this. If you don’t mind, I will report this to the research team. Let them know what the problem is with your daughter. “
“Do you mean that the feet are normal, and the bone density in other places is too high, too big?”
The doctor nodded and said, “It’s outrageous and unbelievably large, but it will take a small piece of bone density to get an accurate conclusion. If you agree, we will thoroughly find out the reason.”
My wife became quiet as soon as she heard it, and said that when my daughter was a little mouse, she did pick her up and leave. When we came out of the hospital, my wife was very angry and said, “I came to the hospital to get my daughter cured. Not to let them experiment on our daughter. No way!”
Jiajia looked at me at this time and said, “My feet hurt!”
“Let me carry you.” I squatted on the ground as I said.
I carried my daughter on my back, and she even stretched out her small mouth and kissed me on the face. Some children do act like adults but she wasn’t one in fact. She even reached inside my mouth with that little tongue, and I suddenly felt like I was carrying a ghost, which made me worry a lot.
