Opening a Shop in the Nightmare World - 149
Translated by rabbitrisu
Su Zimo warned Su Yi. She probably didn’t do anything ridiculously bad in the first part of her life, but after she got the lipstick, her greed built up and completely broke away because of the ominous ghost tool.
Su Zimo could do nothing about the terrible consequences the ghost tool caused, and he had never stopped a backlashing ghost tool.
Wu Qing was killed by his own ghost weapon. Even if he had enough nightmare points, he would eventually disappear from the world due to the ghost tool’s backlash.
The power of backlash was terrible.
It was just for the holder; it didn’t endanger others.
When the backlash ended, the vitality in Su Yi’s body was almost exhausted. Her status was so bad that she couldn’t show herself to anyone. She crawled and hid in the darkness of the dining room, so Su Zimo could only ask the maid, Miss Ye Ning, to help her as much as possible.
Then, Su Zimo and Ghost Umbrella began focusing on Su Zixiang.
“Zimo.” At that moment, Second Uncle Su Duan suddenly rose and left the meeting. “I remember that there are still things to be done at the company. It just so happened that Zixiang returned and I was going to take him to get acquainted. Anyway, today’s family dinner has been attended, so we’ll go ahead.”
Su Zimo looked at the clock on the wall; it was nearly nine in the evening. He didn’t ask Su Duan about his excuse.
Although Su Zixiang felt that leaving the family dinner was equivalent to falling to the wind again and that the ghost umbrella standing behind Su Zimo would one day want to devour him, when Su Duan gave him a way out, Su Zixiang subconsciously followed him away.
The black ghost gave Su Zixiang a very bad feeling.
“Cousin, take care of yourself.” When Su Zixiang left, he spoke to Su Zimo while still looking at the ghost umbrella, as if he was waiting for a good show.
“Many thanks.” Su Zimo responded with a smile.
After learning what happened to Su Yi, Su Hewen, who didn’t show up to the family dinner like usual, took over Su Yi’s troublesome matter from Ye Ning. Su Zimo was relieved to wave his hands and ignore it.
When Su Hewen told Su Yi to go to the hospital, he arranged a paternity test for her and Su Gan. Although he didn’t know if Su Yi cared about the matter just then, Su Gan still cared about it.
Considering Su Gan’s identity as her godfather who had little contact with Su Yi, coupled with the necessary procedures for paternity tests, Su Gan and Su Hewen left with Su Yi.
Before Su Gan left, he secretly ran back upstairs and grabbed a stack of journals, then handed them to Su Zimo.
They weren’t fine leather journals, but a stack of thin books that looked like student exercise books. Many of them were bound together with thread to make it rather thick.
When Su Zimo first entered An Yu Yi Yu, he had found exactly the same journal at the bottom of the shelf.
Su Gan said that it was something left behind by Su Zimo’s mother, so he must have waited for a suitable opportunity to give it to him.
Su Gan walked hurriedly and didn’t have an appropriate opportunity to explain what was happening. He just said that there wasn’t a single word in the journal, but when Su Zimo’s mother gave it to him, she said it was very important and that it would fix many of Su Zimo’s doubts.
When Su Zimo opened the thick journal, the ghost umbrella beside him also muttered–
[It’s really a completely blank journal?]
But what was strange was… the journal his mother left wasn’t blank to Su Zimo’s eyes!
Su Zimo could clearly see the words written in the journal. The handwriting was beautiful and neat, and every stroke was very clear!
He subconsciously adjusted his glasses and stilled for a moment. He tried taking the glasses off the bridge of his nose, and found that the thick journal suddenly became blank!
It’s the glasses!
It was the glasses on the bridge of his nose that let him see the words in the journal.
If so, then he may be the only person who could see the words in this journal.
But the journal was left by his mother… the glasses were in An Yu Yi Yu…
Su Zimo put the glasses back on again, then took the journal back to his study and read each word carefully.
