Giving Birth in a Supernatural Game - Chapter 11
Chen Caixing held the rusty knife, met the eyes of enlarged eyes of the little brother and recited a poem forcefully.
“The green hue of the grass from afar can no longer be seen up close.1 Have you learned this before?”
Yuan Jiuwan’s enlarged eyes were completely at a loss towards this knowledge. Chen Caixing patted the little brother’s head, “You should strengthen your knowledge of literary works in the future。“
”Ok, gege.” Yuan Jiuwan obediently nodded his head.
After changing the subject with two sentences, the atmosphere seemed to be a little more relaxed. Chen Caixing sighed inwardly. He chose to look at the treetop, held the knife and walked towards the sheltered shade of the tree. As soon as he went over, the branches of the tree swayed wildly. The two corpses and the specially mutilated body parts were thrown in front of him.
Luckily the corpses were hung for a long time and the blood was all dried long ago. Apart from mentally attacking people, no blood splashed on him. In order to develop abs, Chen Caixing often ran to the gym when he wasn’t working overtime. After half a year’s training, it came in handy at this time.
Dodging the falling body parts, he aimed at the drooping branches. Chen Caixing grasped the branches in one go and chopped it in.
The knife was rusty so it was difficult to cut but fortunately, when the knife ran into the tree branch, the corpse hanging on the branch stopped its attack on him.
Sure enough, Joanna was truly afraid of this knife.
His actions sped up and the bark was chopped apart, revealing a dark red core, looking as if it was fully filled with blood.
“Wang ge, this brat snatched it first, what do we do?” Jin Hai was unwilling to give up, he came with Wang Xingping to pan for gold but didn’t want to drift along till the end and get nothing but a D.
D meant five gold coins. Can’t do shit with it.
Wang Xingping just got slapped in the face by Chen Caixing’s criticism, he was now maliciously looking under the tree. He said, “Wait for tonight. It’ll be a great chance when that brat kills John. What are we afraid of when we have props in our possession? Take advantage of the chaos to let John end him. Once he dies, we’ll take over.”
“Hehe, it’s still Wang ge who can think of a way.” Jin Hai flattered and couldn’t wait for tonight. Now, what could that trash brew again? Isn’t it just paving a road for them?
The sky dusked.
Ka—— The tree branch broke.
Chen Caixing carried the branch under his armpit. He didn’t stop and gripped a branch by the side to continue chopping. He didn’t have any experience just now. The second branch was chopped at a much faster rate.
“Chen Caixing——” Wang Xiaoxiao suddenly shouted, staring behind Chen Caixing in horror.
He felt a chill behind him. Chen Caixing subconsciously dodged while holding the branch. Something coldly rubbed against his ear. When he perceived it, it was the deceased Lin Qianqian.
At that moment, Lin Qianqian opened her eyes. Her pupils were extremely small, the white of her eyes completely filled her eyeballs. She stared at him like this, showing a smile, very happily smiling.
Chen Caixing did not feel happy at all and only felt his own hair stand on ends.
The corpse started attacking.
The knife was useful in restraining Joanna but it couldn’t restrict all the time.
Chen Caixing realised this point and saw the branches that were about to be cut off in his hand. He clenched his teeth and didn’t let go, sped up the task at hand. He could hear Wang Xiaoxiao’s exclamation with his ears. He did two things at once, chopping the tree branches while dodging the attacks of the branches but the speed of the corpses on the tree was getting quicker and quicker——
“Gege, be careful!”
Xiao Jiu’s voice.
Chen Caixing used strength to cut the branches. At the same time, the palm of the deceased uncle who died on the first day came head-on like the wind. Chen Caixing rolled on the ground to avoid the attack but the build of the middle-aged uncle was as tough as nails. Otherwise, the game won’t be so hard on the first day. Not waiting for him to evade again, the other party attacked.
But this time, Yuan Jiuwan ran into his arms. Chen Caixing’ expression changed drastically. He looked at the attacking corpse of the uncle. Unexpectedly, the corpse stopped attacking to his surprise.
The whole tree stopped.
“Gege, I’m scared. Are you alright?” Yuan Jiuwan’s soft voice choked with emotion as his hands encircled Chen Caixing’s neck.
“Let’s get out of here first.” They were still under the tree.
Yuan Jiuwan helped to drag a branch of his own accord. Wang Xiaoxiao carried on from the edge, “This child almost scared me to death, he ran out all of a sudden and I couldn’t stop him. Fortunately, you’re all fine.”
After Chen Caixing was safe from working under the tree with hanging corpses and experiencing a life or death situation, he was quite exhausted. He said, “Let’s go back to the house first.”
Seeing that Chen Caixing hadn’t suffered any injuries and returned in good condition, Jin Hai was not happy but when he thought that they would take over the task tonight, he didn’t swear as a result.
Fragrance wafted from their dinner.
The tired Chen Caixing who only wanted to sleep, smelled the fragrance and his stomach rumbled, seemingly protesting with him. Chen Caixing thought of that beer belly of his and was angered. He muttered, “You still want to eat when you’re already so fat!” However, he sat down at the dining table and ate heartily. There was still a war to fight tonight.
“Xiao Jiu, Gege will tell you, in future, don’t charge when it’s dangerous.” He wasn’t hungry anymore. Chen Caixing thought of educating the little brother.
Yuan Jiuwan felt wronged and said pitifully, ”But Gege was in danger. I want to protect Gege too.”
The little brother’s pair of apricot eyes were holding back tears, watery and stubbornly not falling. He was pitiful and lovable. The old father, Chen Caixing’s heart crumbled as he looked and he couldn’t continue his teachings, “Gege didn’t say anything. Xiao Jiu is the most obedient.”
Dinner ended. The three of them returned to their bedrooms on the second floor. Zhao Ru trembled with fear as she followed along. However, Wang Xiaoxiao thought that Zhao Ru had been talked into speaking by those three people in the afternoon and immediately prevented Zhao Ru from entering the room.
“Xiao Jiu, the wad of black skin.”
“Xiaoxiao, give me the knife.”
The room was dimly lit. Chen Caixing started making a wooden peg according to the drawing on the wad of black skin. The wooden peg was very simple but the knife in his hand was not functioning well so his curving speed was not fast. After almost more than ten minutes, a wooden peg was finally done. There was still one more.
Was John’s heart on the left or the right?
He didn’t know.
The more the game reached the critical point, the more careful he had to be as the pits given were not few.
Don’t let him stab it into John’s chest for his own heart to be taken out by John, the other party laughing at him. Never thought laozi’s heart was next door.
Chen Caixing’s mind was supplemented with plots while being reduced to a blockhead. After he was done, the lights went out with a pop.
It was after midnight.
“Don’t go back, stay here to make do with this bad situation. If it goes well, it won’t take the whole night.” Chen Caixing said to Wang Xiaoxiao while he touched Yuan Jiuwan’s head. It was fluffy. The little brother’s hair was soft and fluffy. His apricot eyes were bright and pitifully looked at him.
Forget it. Chen Caixing didn’t tell Yuan Jiuwan to hide.
If he died tonight, Wang Xingping, those three people, were unlikely to let Xiao Jiu off.
Dong, dong, dong——
They went to the basement in the afternoon and came across the wooden barrel then John got angry. As expected, he showed up in the night. It was even the wooden barrel itself coming upstairs. The thumping sound got closer and closer, resembling a rhythmic knocking on everyone’s chest on the second floor.
The entire second floor was quite silent.
The wooden barrel reached the second floor.
It halted for a few seconds. The other party seemed to be searching for something. Chen Caixing knew John was searching for him. His hand touched the wooden barrel before in the afternoon, leaving behind his scent. Sure enough, the thumping sound of the wooden barrel started after a few seconds, getting closer and closer. One step, two steps……
Chen Caixing, who heard the sound of the wooden barrel, was a little nervous but when the thumping sound got closer and closer, his heart calmed down.
Holding the wooden peg in his hand, Chen Caixing could even hear Wang Xiaoxiao the sound of her restraining her ragged breathing. John got out from the wooden barrel.
“Make a wax figure——”
Chen Caixing opened the door abruptly. The dark corridor was permeated with serene cold light. John, who was outside, met him face-to-face. Their eyes meet each other. He was a tall man covered in viscous blood from head to toe. His features could not be seen clearly and his hair was continuously dripping with blood.
“I want to make your ass.” The wooden peg in Chen Caixing’s hand stabbed into the left side of John’s chest.
Chen Caixing executed this all too quickly. Decisive and neatly.
The wooden peg seemed to be stuck into a rotten fruit. It was extremely easy to stab it in. Subsequently, a fishy smell drifted out. John was motionless and maintained his posture when he was stabbed by the wooden peg in the barrel, merely having blood dripping away.
When Chen Caixing cautiously took out the second wooden peg from his pocket, a strong harsh light suddenly burst out from the corridor.
Monkey was holding a flashlight with intense light. This was the prop he bought. He made sure John’s chest had something and loudly shouted, “Wang ge, the wooden peg is in John’s chest. John’s not moving anymore.”
“Jin Hai, go pull out the wooden peg.”
“Settled.” Jin Hai wasn’t afraid as he had a backing. The prop to resist the attack of the ghost was his. The talisman in Wang Xingping’s hands was to cover up one’s body scent and obtain a few seconds to flee for one’s life. There were so many rooms on the second floor. When that moment comes, it was fine to just find a room at random.
The three of them planned this a long time ago so all of this happened very quickly.
Monkey hid at the nearest room to shine the light, Jin Hai pulled out the peg in John’s chest and then Wang Xingping threw something on Chen Caixing’s room door.
There was a ‘kada’ sound.
When Chen Caixing reacted to close the door, the door was already broken and couldn’t be closed. The most dreadful thing was that Jin Hai pulled out the wooden peg in John’s chest.
Ka ka ka.
The wax figures downstairs were coming up.
He had the intention to hack Jin Hai, those three, into pieces.
The wooden barrel was blocking the door so he couldn’t get out. Chen Caixing held the other peg and fell back into the room. There must not be any mishap this time. Inserting a peg could temporarily make John immobile and gain more time. It was fine so long as he found the peg in Jin Hai’s possession.
“Xiaoxiao, flashlight.” Chen Caixing shouted.
Wang Xiaoxiao was so startled by the sudden unforeseen event that her hands were ice-cold. She tremblingly took out her mobile phone but saw John who jumped out of the wooden barrel at the door and shouted as she lost her head out of fear, “Chen Caixing, he, he came out.”
The room was too dark. Chen Caixing feared he stabbed the wrong place especially when John was still moving in complete darkness.
The sound coming from outside became louder.
That group wax figure came up.
Jin Hai, those three, hid in the room next door. Monkey excitedly shook as he held the flashlight in his hand. Wang ge said that as long as they subdue the boss, they can get a B at the very least for this round, which was twenty-five thousand yuan ah!
“Wait for them to die before we take action.”
”Wang ge is awesome.”
“Trash still dares to challenge me, serves him right.” Jin Hai spat.
The wax figures came upstairs. Jin Hai, those three, were fervent for the game rewards. Even the always timid Monkey, was not afraid of the wax figures outside. The door was closed so the wax figures could not come in.
Peng peng peng!
“Old Wang, want to make a wax figure?”
“Did the three of you forget about me?”
“Get fucking lost Zhao Jun, laozi isn’t afraid of you. If you have the capability then come in——” Jin Hai clamoured but before he finished his words, the door opened with a bang. Zhao Jun stiffly moved his neck outside and swept his gaze to the three of them, revealing a mouth full of white teeth, “Three wax figures, beautiful wax figures……”
The sound of blood-curling screeches fell incessantly on the ear.
The room next door.
At a corner, Yuan Jiuwan was holding a mobile phone in his hand as a pure white light illuminating the entire room. John stopped at a distance of half a step away from Chen Caixing, so close that Chen Caixing’s nose was full of John’s fishy stench. Right now, John’s chest was stabbed with a wooden peg. It was too dangerous just now. Chen Caixing made a desperate attempt to stab so hard that it caused the whole wooden peg to be stabbed into John’s chest, with the wooden peg nowhere in sight.
But John who was nailed in place was still moving to one’s surprise.
Too many people died at night. John’s ability was strengthened.
Chen Caixing thought of the miserable shrieks next door and made a prompt decision, “Hand me the phone. I’ll go next door to find the peg. Xiaoxiao, take Xiao Jiu to another room.”
“Gege, I’ll go with you.” Yuan Jiuwan didn’t let Wang Xiaoxiao touch him and took the flashlight to follow along with a pitter-patter.
The wax figures outside were all stiff in place. It should have to do with John being stabbed by the wooden peg. Chen Caixing did not dare to delay and opened the door to the room next door. Under the flashlight, Monkey died tragically on the floor.with the floor full of blood. Wang Xingping was lying behind Monkey. It should be that he pulled Hou Zi to take the bullet but was not able to avoid it.
On the contrary, Jin Hai was still alive but his whole body was stiff, glistening under the light as if he had been dipped in wax oil from head to toe.
Chen Caixing found the wooden peg by Jin Hai’s foot and quickly picked it up. He found that Zhao Jun’s arm was moving again——not good, John was about to break free. Chen Caixing rushed into the room next door with the wooden peg. John’s head forcefully turned a hundred and eighty degrees to face Chen Caixing.
“I’ll make your father.” The wooden peg in Chen Caixing’s hand pierces John’s chest accurately.
The lights in the room switched on.
As though they returned to the human world from hell.
Wang Xiaoxiao cried bitterly. She also didn’t know what she was crying for. After completing everything, Chen Caixing was extremely exhausted but could not sleep. He hugged Yuan Jiuwan and touched the little brother’s soft hair. The three of them found a clean bedroom and kept watch until it was dawn.
No one mentioned Jin Hai was still alive but his face was soaked in wax oil. They didn’t know if he could carry on until the end of the game.
“It’s dawn. Chen Caixing, the sun’s come out.” Wang Xiaoxiao rubbed her eyes and said inconceivably.
The gloomy sky originally filled with dense fog, had turned into a different appearance. The orange sun passed through the mist and penetrated the windows to spill on the bedroom floor. Chen Caixing didn’t know when he muddle-headedly fell asleep. He woke up to see the sunshine and felt relieved.
“Our car parts should have arrived today.” Chen Caixing recalled their identity given by the game.
Wang Xiaoxiao smiled while crying, “Thank you, thank you Chen Caixing. If it weren’t for you, I would not be alive today. Thank you.”
There were still wax figures standing in strange postures in the corridor.
When they went out, they ran into Zhao Ru. The other party had a deathly pale face with thick eye bags. She was absent-minded and didn’t greet them when she met them, appearing to have something wrong with her mind.
In the living room.
There was no breakfast on the dining table.
Mr. House stood in place and looked at the few of them, “Good morning children. I’ll tell you the good news. The car parts arrived early. I have already helped you to fix the car. In the afternoon, you can continue on your graduation trip. Congratulations.”
“Thank you.” From the NPC’s words, Chen Caixing was certain they had gotten through the ordeal and felt relieved. He said with a smile, “So benevolent Mr. House, what about our breakfast?”
Wang Xiaoxiao noticed the corner of Mr. House’s mouth went stiff.
Probably wanted to curse at them.
Soon, they had their breakfast
Their last meal for breakfast was done quite half-heartedly but everyone’s appetite was very good. Zhao Ru ate porridge. She seemed to realise the game had ended so she could go home. She bawled with tears and snot flowing down her face, crying out for her father and mother.
There was still some time until the car was fixed in the afternoon.
Chen Caixing went to the backyard. The tree still had a corpse hanging on it. He took out a necklace from his pocket, it was exactly the one Yuan Jiuwan found in the dresser drawer on the third floor. Last night, he was attacked by the corpse when he was cutting off the second tree branch but it stopped in the end.
It should be this necklace that saved his life.
Chen Caixing hung the necklace on the tip of the tree.
The sun was very bright. Before leaving, there was still something he had to do.
Joanna wanted revenge but the players’ blood was used for revenge. She was no better than John. Chen Caixing didn’t have any favourable impression for the ghost NPC in the game. Returning to the second floor, it was unknown when Jin Hai had died, his entire body was dripping with blood mixed with wax oil. His expression was distorted. He should have died painfully while he was alive.
Chen Caixing looked at the statue-like wax figure on the second floor.
John had died. These wax figures were trapped in place, their souls could not wait to be free.
Since the game was cleared, I’ll send you on your way.
Chen Caixing set the second floor on fire.
The fragrance of the wax oil was burned very merrily with a crackle. Soon, there was the foul odour of corpses. The fire ignited on the second floor rapidly spread to the first floor.
The flame was fierce and licked the last layer of fog clean. The sun was very bright and shined on them until it made one feel hot.
Chen Caixing was so hot that he unzipped the zipper of his down coat. After he saw his beer belly, he angrily pulled the zipper up again.
He would rather be burning hot!
After the minibus was repaired, a driver popped out of nowhere and slowly drove these few senior high school students out of the small town.

Early Spring Drizzles by Han Yu (768－842)
Now, all the palace streets are moistened by the smooth-cream-wine drizzles;
The green hue of the grass from afar can no longer be seen up close.
This is by far the best season of all: Early Spring of the year —
Better than when willows and mists embrace the whole Capital here.
