Giving Birth in a Supernatural Game - Chapter 12
Through the glass window, the NPC, House, was still in front of the wooden fence. He kept looking in the direction they left in and hadn’t left yet, as if waiting for something.
“Gege.” Yuan Jiuwan’s glutinous and childish voice was gloomy.
Chen Caixing retracted his gaze and saw his little brother’s apricot eyes, opened round. It was watery and pitiful, like an abandoned puppy and reluctant to part. It caused Chen Caixing who didn’t adore children to feel bitter. Especially when he guessed from the words of those few with Wang Xingping that this game couldn’t be said to be finished after one game. What could his little brother do without him in the future!
It broke the heart of big brother.
“Xiao Jiu, when the game is over, if there’s a prop to help bind teammates, I’ll buy it. Let’s enter together again?”
Although the little brother was young but was quite courageous. He really liked to help and not trouble him, such as switching on the flashlight at the last moment when John got closer and closer. Wang Xiaoxiao was so scared that she threw her mobile phone aside. Nevertheless, his little brother tried hard to save him in a desperate crisis in the darkness and supported him with the light. He didn’t hold him back and never screamed while crying. When they were out of danger, he could still sell meng.1
Chen Caixing who had an eight-hundred layered filter, the little brother looked great to him however he looked.
Yuan Jiuwan instantly changed from a pitiful abandoned puppy to joyfully wagging his tail, nodding his head as if pounding garlic. He obediently said, “Gege, it’s settled. Let’s pinky swear, ok?”
“Ok.” By no means did Chen Caixing believe it but he’ll take it as coaxing a child.
The two pinky fingers hooked together. The eyes of Wang Xiaoxiao looking from the side, turned red. She was envious and also wanted to hug Chen Caixing’s thigh. They were all newcomers so how could he be of such high quality!
The vehicle swayed as it drove to the entrance of the town.
The fog had already dissipated and the vast fields all around could be seen. It was dark in front of Chen Caixing and he sank into a type of pitch-dark surrounding alone. The other people in the vehicle also enshrouded. An electronic screen suddenly appeared in front of him out of nowhere.
Chen Caixing has completed the supernatural game, wax museum.
Grade A, rewarded fifty gold coins (can be exchanged for real money), 1 prop was dropped, the basic version of the mall has been opened.
Killing John accomplished.
Eliminating the evil spirits in the town accomplished.
Finding a high-value clue accomplished.
Hidden boss not accomplished.
The screen disappeared once it was settled and what appeared was Chen Caixing’s personal information. The requirements for the world had been cleared. Currently, he only had the wax museum, with the difficulty of an intermediate world stamped behind. There was a backpack-like icon at the corner which Chen Caixing tapped to open it. The backpack only had two empty slots with nothing in it.
The prop dropped was a mask symbol with a red unread notice on top of it.
Chen Caixing was still a little excited. He didn’t know what prop it was, after tapping on it——
Disguise prop. Detailed explanation: You can also have a hundred transformations in supernatural games.
It was quite useless.
Chen Caixing didn’t look twice and went to the mall. There were many categories in the mall, the general idea of life, home, outing, travel, murder, self-protection together with an integrated large-scale supermarket. However, he didn’t care much about it. Since it was a basic version, the things he could buy were just a handful. A lot of them were in the state of being locked with grey slots.
He skipped a few rows of snacks and finally found the prop to bind a teammate near the grey slots at the end.
Thirty-eight gold coins.
I have a poem I want to chant.
He had a total of fifty gold coins. The snacks in front were all one by one. Chen Caixing still felt the gold coins were quite a lot but looking at the price of the props now, he was really a little brother.
Fortunately, there was an unlimited use for the prop to bind teammates but it can only bind a quota of one teammate and the prop will become invalid after unbinding the teammate. It was tantamount to say it was one for one, it was a pipe dream to wish for no problems.2
Chen Caixing didn’t hesitate and brought the prop. He already made a pinky promise. As a big brother, he could not break his promise to his little brother.
He just finished and his head was dizzy. After three seconds, he was forcefully ejected from the wax museum world.
The sun was scorching as the grey enveloping the small town dissipated.
The wax museum raged with a large fire. House still stood in front of the wooden fence and didn’t leave. Until a figure approached from afar on the pathway. The figure was small and appeared to be a child at first sight.
House stood straighter with his head slightly lowered and made a welcoming gesture.
The figure walked very quickly as if teleporting and came before House in a blink of an eye.
“Mister.” House said respectfully.
If Chen Caixing was on site, he could recognise this person who was called mister by House, was the one he just made a pinky promise with, pitiful little brother Yuan Jiuwan who sold meng when everything was alright.
But now, the puppy Yuan Jiuwan who had watery apricot eyes had an icy small face with no expression.
“The wax museum world will temporarily be closed. There will be another NPC to take over.”
Yuan Jiuwan no longer lingered. With a clacking sound, the small body suddenly split into piece by piece, replaced by a silhouette intertwined with a black and red fog. After that, it transformed into a solid body.
A tall adult male.
House didn’t have the courage to look at the other party’s appearance, his head lowered even more and trembled as he paid his respect. He actually could not figure out the other’s identity but the other’s power was crushing him.
The black shadow quickly scattered.
The wristwatch which stopped moving, started to move in the peaceful car. Chen Caixing stared at his wristwatch. His down coat was filthy as if he had rolled somewhere. It even had bloodstains.
The wax museum world was real.
It wasn’t a dream.
The red light turned to a green light.
What Chen Caixing drove was the second-hand vehicle he bought. In front of him was a small bus. He stayed in the wax museum world for six days but now in the real world, it appeared as if he had never left.
The time discrepancy caused Chen Caixing to not come to. He subconsciously touched his stomach. His beer belly was gone!
For two seconds, Chen Caixing was in high spirits for his abs which were lost and then regained. It’s too great. The abs lost when he had gone to the other world had recognised its owner and came back at last. I don’t resent you for running about, as long as you come back!
The vehicle behind started honking and the driver poked his head out to curse, urging him to start driving.
Chen Caixing did not care about it at all and happily pushed the lever to do his best to start driving. The small bus in front already drove to the middle of the crossroad. His car had just crossed the zebra crossing as a big truck rushed out with a whistle, no more than a few meters away from his car.
The sound was loud. The big truck sent the small bus flying.
Chen Caixing slammed on the brakes, looking through the windshield, it could be seen that it was a tragic situation ahead.
The smile on his face froze. If he was driving as usual, as one can well imagine.
“There’s, there’s a car accident!”
Chen Caixing pulled over his car and got out to help. A man also got out from the car behind. He glanced at Chen Caixing and said with a pale face, “I’m sorry brother. Fortunately, you stopped for a few seconds more. I originally wanted to overtake you. In short, thank you. ”
“Help first.” Chen Caixing just brushed past death so his mind was still in quite a state of disorder.
“Right, right, right, to help. How did this truck driver drive? Failing to stop at a red traffic light, damn.”
In the late winter night, there were few pedestrians at the crossing, the majority that helped were the drivers of vehicles passing by.
The truck was too fast and sent a small bus flying. It leaped up and crashed into the green belt.3 The whole vehicle was overthrown. The bus was even more miserable, the front was dented and it spun around. The glass shattered all over the ground. Under the illumination of the street lamps in the dark, a person even laid a few metres away from the bus. The passengers were thrown out during the collision.
“Did anyone make a call?”
“I’ve called, they said they’ll arrive soon.”
“It’s also fortunate there are not many people on the bus in the middle of the night.”
There were indeed not many people in the bus, approximately seven to eight people. The driver died on the spot. The passenger thrown out on the ground which had been stained by a patch of blood. Everyone didn’t dare to take action, fearing something bad would happen.
Everyone could only surround the vehicle, smash the glass window and wait for the ambulance to come.
The ambulance arrived soon. The doctors, nurses and passers-by rescued the passengers trapped in the vehicle.
Chen Caixing stood at the edge and didn’t block their way. His mind was blank and he was thinking of the brief encounter with death. If he didn’t die in the game, would this car accident end his life?
“Doctor, doctor, there’s a child inside.”
“There’s still another one?”
“At the back of the bus, so pitiful, it looks like a woman holding a child in her arms.”
“A pity, it should be a mother. She died on the spot but the child is unexpectedly unharmed. Only that, he’s staring blankly, did not respond to anyone and is in shock.”
“As a mother, why did she take a child out at night? Alas, this happened.”
“What else? The boy looks fair, only that he’s very thin. Every family has its own problems.”
The passers-by were discussing.
On the stretcher, the little boy laid flay and he received the doctor’s examination. When pushed onto the ambulance, Chen Caixing at the side, saw the clothes on the little boy on the stretcher and was stunned. At the same time. He made heavy eye contact with the little boy.
Chen Caixing stepped forward quickly. It was really his little brother Yuan Jiuwan laying on the stretcher. At the moment, the child’s face was pale and he was covered in blood all over. He still wore the same clothes in the game. It was filthy. A pair of apricot eyes damp with tears and small hands tightly gripping Chen Caixing’s sleeve.
“Gege.” The child’s tender voice was soft.
Each word weeping with sorrow.4
Chen Caixing thought of the traffic accident moments ago. There was even a passer-by who said——the woman hugged the child in her arms and died on the spot.
His heart couldn’t help but ache, Xiao Jiu’s mother was gone.
“Don’t be afraid, gege is here.” Chen Caixing touched the soft hair of his little brother.
Yuan Jiuwan sat up and buried his head into Chen Caixing’s abdomen. Chen Caixing’s heart felt unwell as he hugged the small body of his little brother, gently consoling him, “Gege is here, Xiao Jiu, don’t be afraid.”
Doctor: “Are you the child’s brother? In that case, good. Let’s go to the hospital together.”
Hospital Emergency Room.
Chen Caixing accompanied Yuan Jiuwan to perform a series of checkups. Other than a few minor bruises on his arm from being scratched by glass, everything else was fine. However, to be on the safe side, the doctor recommended him to stay in the hospital for observation for two days.
Xiao Jiu appeared to be in shock and didn’t want anyone. His small face was pale as his eyes gazed at him. Even when he paid for the bill, he wasn’t willing to let go. In the end, the nurse couldn’t endure looking at them and said he could wait for the child to sleep before paying the bills.
Chen Caixing originally wanted to ask his little brother whether there was anyone else in his family; for example, his father. After such a big incident, family members should be contacted. However, when he asked, the little brother buried his head into his embrace and wouldn’t say anything at all.
It couldn’t be helped.
The two of them were brought together by fate. Chen Caixing touched his little brother’s soft hair and postponed this matter.
