more like a living body built of reinforced concrete than a certain inorganic dead object. It breathes, pumps, never gets tired, and exists vigorously all the time.
And under the busy and calm surface, there is a turbulent undercurrent.
Suddenly, in that dark corner where even the sun can’t shine, whispers unfolded without warning.
That whisper spread in the darkness like a dark tide, quickly spreading to every dark corner of the city.
——Some extremely powerful dark creature descended here.
Its existence cannot be ignored, just like a sudden change in the gravitational field, forcing the entire city to be affected and reshaped by it.
At the same time, the highest reward on the hatred list doubled again.
Something agitated in the shadow.
“Boom boom boom!” The
knock on the door was rapid and heavy, breaking the silence abruptly.
The lights in the room were completely extinguished, and there was no light at all, blending with the dark night outside the window.
No one answered the door.
“Boom boom boom!” The
knock on the door became even more anxious.
The dust on the door panel was shaken off in a shock, and it fell sternly on the dirty and wet ground.
Behind the swaying door panel, Wang Shize and his wife hugged each other tightly, and shuddered in a corner of the wall.
The dim light from the corridor spilled in through the crack of the door, illuminating the pale faces of the two and the shiny tears on them.
“Boom boom boom!”
They shook again, covering their mouths tightly, their eyes panicked, and they stared at the gap under the door.
Two fuzzy shadows moved.
It seemed that someone was standing behind the door, waiting for them to open it.
Across the door panel, a regular sound of water droplets could be heard vaguely.
The two tremblingly hugged each other, closing their eyes and plugging their ears, as if this could keep everything out of their home.
I don’t know how long it will take.
The shadow disappeared, and the dragging footsteps drifted away, disappearing at the end of the corridor.
But the two people in the room did not relax, but broke down and wept bitterly:
“Please… let us go…” The
next day, in the evening.
After get off work, Wang Shize walked alone on his way home.
The setting sun in the distance sank little by little, stretching his shadow in the alley.
The winding alleys were empty, and small advertisements were randomly posted on the mottled walls. The handwriting had faded and was almost unrecognizable.
The walls are sprayed with messy graffiti and handwriting.
As night fell little by little, the half-bright and half-dark gray sky was gradually swallowed by darkness, and his vision became dim.
Wang Shize’s complexion was very bad, with heavy bluish-black bags under his eyes, it seemed that he hadn’t slept for many days.
He walked and stumbled, as long as there is any wind and grass, it will make him look up nervously and wince, searching for anomalies.
Sneezes !” Suddenly, Wang Shize sneezed. He rubbed his itchy nose. For some reason, it seemed that the further he went, the lower the temperature.
As if suddenly being immersed in ice water, the biting cold penetrated the texture like steel needles, making him shiver instinctively.
Wang Shize looked forward.
The lane ahead looked narrow and long, extending into the darkness.
The further you go, the darker the light.
His heart jumped suddenly.
How long has he… been away?
Generally speaking, as long as you walk through this alley and turn a corner, you will be home.
But today… he felt as if he had walked for more than half an hour, but he still didn’t see the end of the alley.
Wang Shize shivered suddenly, and a chill climbed up his spine.
In the dead and gloomy alley, the only thing I could hear was the sound of my footsteps becoming more and more rushing and messy.
At the end of the alley, there was a faint sound of water droplets.
Suddenly, Wang Shize stopped his footsteps. He seemed to realize something, suddenly his complexion changed drastically, and he looked at the alley ahead distorted and horrified. It was as if what awaited him there was the abyss of hell.
He threw down his briefcase tremblingly, turned his head and ran.
In his ears were the howling wind and his own wheezing gasps, he could only perceive that his physical strength was losing rapidly.
I don’t know how long it took.
Without warning, Wang Shize suddenly stopped.
His face became ugly in extreme panic, his pale face was stained with a sudden red from the high-intensity running, his eyeballs were slightly protruding, and his teeth rattled.
Because…in the process of running just now, he noticed one thing.
The dark red messy spray paint on the wall seemed…every time he walked forward, it would become brighter. By now, it has become completely unignorable, and it is burned on the edge of the horizon like a blood-red scar.
Wang Shize turned his head with difficulty, and moved his gaze to the wall little by little…The
alley was completely covered by darkness, silently submerging him, and he could only hear the rapid drumbeat of his heart and his messy breathing.
a smiling face.
It has no white eyes, one pair of eyes are occupied by pure black, the blood-red mouth below it is slightly split, and a huge and strange arc is bent, it seems to be still pulling upwards a little bit, silently fixedly staring at him.
“Ah ah ah ah – !!”
shrill screams pierced the night sky.
On the bustling street, Ye Jia carried a large and small shopping bag in one hand, and a cup of pearl boba milk tea in the other, and walked forward slowly.
Suddenly, he paused and turned his head thoughtfully to look beside him.
The surrounding streets are still peaceful, and no one seems to notice the slightest strangeness.
Ye Jia frowned.
Today is the fourth day of his holiday, and this time he went to the supermarket to buy some daily necessities.
Because of the close distance, Xiao Heishou was not forced to come out with him as usual. Recently, this ghost was obsessed with his mobile phone and couldn’t get out of it. He stayed in the room every day, holding his mobile phone and motionless.
Otherwise, with its sensitivity to Yin Qi, it should be able to figure out the source of the strangeness just now.
Ye Jia hesitated, and finally changed his pace and walked in that direction.
After all, this place is too close to my home, too indulgent and easy to cause trouble.
But Ye Jia really didn’t want to move again.
He followed the wave of fluctuations towards the alley.
The farther you go, the fewer people flow.
Under the shroud of night, there was a faint smell of rust in the air, sweet and cold, gradually becoming richer as the distance shortened.
Ye Jia’s eyes shimmered slightly, and the pace under her feet could not help speeding up.
Suddenly a bloody figure appeared from the entrance of the alley in front of me. He stumbled forward and screamed: “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ——”
Wang Shize stepped on vain steps, staring at a pair of horrified eyeballs, and firmly grasped the first person he saw:
“Save me! Save me!!”
Ye Jia was caught off guard. Right now.
The milk tea in his hand slammed down and dripped to the ground.
Ye Jia: “!”
My milk tea!
He did not have time to regret it. In the peripheral light of his sight, a pale figure was faintly hidden in the depths of the alley in front of him.
Ye Jia was slightly startled and squinted his eyes.
This taste ……
Just then, suddenly sounded behind a whirlwind treble octave: “ah ah ah ah ah !! !!! Pathwalker to kill it !!!!!”
leaf Buddha: “……”
by, It’s better to catch up early than to catch up by coincidence.
Forty minutes later.
“Name?” The policeman lowered his head and wrote something.
Ye Jia had no expression on his face and replied sadly:
After asking the basic information, the police raised his head:
“Let’s talk about it, what did the matter go through?”
Ye Jiayin went to the point that he was aware of the abnormal fluctuation of Yin Qi, and then compared his own experience just now. Said it.
While listening, the police watched the suspect sitting across from him.
The young man in front of him looked young, his complexion was fair, his amber eyes looked clear and clean, and his speech was clear.
Coupled with the two huge shopping bags at their feet, although the police did not believe them ten points, they did have points.
At this moment, the phone beside him rang.
The policeman answered the phone and said a few words before opening his brows.
He hung up the phone, and then pushed the form in hand to Ye Jia:
“Fill it out, and you can leave .”
Ye Jia filled it out and scanned the policeman opposite: “What’s wrong? What happened? Is it?”
“Hurt, it’s nothing, it’s the news from the hospital.” The police shook his head: “Checked, there is nothing serious about the person, I guess he was a little frightened, and the wound on his head was caused by his own fall.”
He learned from Ye Jia He took the form in his hand, put it aside, and said routinely:
“Don’t leave the city during this time. We will find you if we have any questions.”
“Okay.” Ye Jia nodded: “Thank you Comrade Police “
He bent down, picked up the two shopping bags under his feet, and walked outside the police station.
The lights outside are already on, the bright traffic and the bustling people are weaving, but this lively scene can’t dispel the haze between Ye Jia’s eyebrows.
In the alley just now, he clearly sensed the existence of Li Gui.
And the man who grabbed him tightly, although the police said he had nothing serious, but his face was wrapped in a heavy death spirit, it was obvious that his energy was exhausted and his life was at stake.
Ye Jia thinks that he is by no means a saint, and he is not prepared to intervene in every haunted case.
There are thousands of dead souls. After so many years of playing in the game, Ye Jia has already been familiar with it. Even his own hands are not so clean. Why bother to pretend to be such a noble appearance to play the savior. ?
don’t know why, the smell of the ghost inexplicably gave him a strange sense of familiarity.
It’s a pity that the time is too short, and he hasn’t had time to figure out where the familiarity comes from, and the other party disappears.
Maybe we should check it out?
Ye Jia thought for a while.
…No, forget it.
He has seen thousands of ghosts in the game, and it is not strange to feel familiar.
In addition, he still has that strange hatred list on his head. There is no need to sacrifice his hard-won holiday for such a vague familiarity with such a big risk of catching a cold.
Ye Jia looked down at his half-dry sleeves and sighed.
Alas, it’s a pity that he has milk tea.
the next day.
Ye Jia slept comfortably until she woke up naturally, then bathed in the morning light, went to the kitchen and made a cup of tea for herself.
Before he turned around and walked back, he just heard the vague voice of conversation outside the door:
“…Are you sure it is this floor?”
“Yes, it must be correct.”
“This, this house?”
” Yes, yes ?” “
These two voices sounded so familiar, and Ye Jia suddenly froze in the door.
The footsteps approached.
“Boom, boom, boom.” A
polite knock on the door sounded:
“Hello, we are the special affairs investigation department, can I borrow your two minutes?”
Ye Jia’s eyes went dark, as if he saw the vacation pat his wings far away. Go: “…”
Ye Jia opened the door blankly.
Not surprisingly, two familiar faces appeared at the door.
Zhao Guangcheng and…Cheng Cezhi.
The former looked surprised, the latter evasive, apparently he hadn’t recovered from the shock a few days ago.
Seeing Ye Jia, Zhao Guangcheng quickly looked down at the form in his hand, and raised his head in surprise: “Ah! It turns out that it’s you! I said why I looked so familiar with this name just now…”
Cheng Cezhi smiled reluctantly: “Ye Brother, early, good morning.”
The little black hand who rushed to hear the sound leaned out from behind Ye Jia and waved to him enthusiastically: “Hi!!!”
“…” Cheng Cezhi looked like he was going to faint again. .
“So,” Ye Jia asked: “Why are the two of you this time?”
Zhao Guangcheng smirked and scratched his head: “Isn’t there not enough staff in this game…”
Okay, I understand, no more explanation is needed. Up.
After a few brief chats, Ye Jia probably understood the current investigation progress of the Administration.
The person he met yesterday was called Wang Shize, who lived two blocks away from here. The two had already been to the hospital once and briefly talked with the person involved.
“It’s not like being lived in by nightmare.” Cheng Cezhi said.
“Yes, it’s too deliberate and too targeted.” Zhao Guangcheng nodded and concluded: “It’s more like a ghost.”
Being a nightmare is generally random, but a ghost is completely different. They are life-deaths. The ghosts will only look for people who are related to their own deaths.
Cheng Cezhi agreed: “I also feel that this Wang Shize, I always feel as if he is hiding something.”
They quickly decided on the division of labor.
Cheng Cezhi said: “I will go to the police station to look through the files to see if this Wang Shize is linked to any murder or disappearance.”
“Okay.” Zhao Guangcheng nodded, “Then I and Ye Jia will go to his house. Can you pry out some clues from his family.”
Ye Jia who was cueed inexplicably: “…”
Damn you, why.
Zhao Guangcheng looked at Ye Jia, and said with some embarrassment: “Hey…The main reason is that the efficiency of split operations will be much higher, but there must be someone who can operate the instrument to go to the scene—”
He looked at Ye Jia with a cold face. He patted his chest and promised: “And today, I would like to eat! Wrap milk tea on the road! What do you want to order!”
Ye Zheng was about to decline: “Still…”
At this moment, the boring little black hand came to him and excitedly followed him. Show off: “Right, do you know that Xiaojindou can be recharged? I just bought a lot of golden beans…”
The phone on the desktop shook slightly.
A text message popped up.
Ye Jia looked down at the balance: “…” It’s
hard, his fist is hard.
He counted his budget for dinner tonight in his heart, took a deep breath, looked up at Zhao Guangcheng, who was watching him shiningly, and pulled away a reluctant smile:
“…a word is for sure.”
Twenty minutes later.
Ye Jia and Zhao Guangcheng came under an honest residential building.
The faded wall is mottled, clothes of various colors are hanging in the anti-theft iron windows, and the green plants that have not been trimmed in time come out of the window, which looks very lifelike.
Ye Jia looked up at the building in front of him, frowned slightly, as if thinking about something.
Soon, he withdrew his sight.
The two walked in one after another.
There is no elevator in the residential building. Even though it is still daytime, the light in the corridor is still very dim, and the messy clutter is piled up in the narrow corridor, making it more difficult to walk.
Zhao Guangcheng stopped in front of one of the doors.
He knocked on the door: “Hello, is it Mr. Wang Shize’s house?”
A woman’s neurotic voice came from the door, and it sounded high and sharp in the narrow corridor: “We don’t buy things!”
“We are special “Investigation Department,” Zhao Guangcheng said patiently, “Can I borrow your time for two minutes?”
The sound of footsteps approaching came from inside the door.
“Kara” and “Kara”.
The sound of metal collision sounded in the corridor when the door latch was pulled, followed by the sound of the iron chain, and finally the locked door handle.
It took more than a minute back and forth.
Zhao Guangcheng and Ye Jia looked at each other unexpectedly.
Finally, the door opened.
A woman’s pale and panicked face appeared from the crack of the door, and
she looked out: “What are you looking for my husband for?” Zhao Guangcheng showed her his credentials, and then continued:
“It’s just a routine investigation. May I ask you recently? Is there anything strange happening at home?”
There was a tremor of horror on the woman’s face. She shuddered, and then shook her head vigorously: “No, no.”
She wanted to close the door, but Zhao Guangcheng’s eyes quickly blocked it with his feet: “Wait, I I think you already know what happened to your husband yesterday, right?” The
woman’s shiver became more obvious:
“Madam, I hope you don’t take these improperly,” Zhao Guangcheng frowned anxiously. The attitude became serious: “Do you know that if this continues, you and your husband will probably be alive soon…”
A faltering expression flashed across the woman’s eyes.
During the stalemate between the two, Zhao Guangcheng’s cell phone rang suddenly.
After speaking briefly with the person on the phone, his expression changed slightly.
Hanging up the phone, he slowly asked: “Your sister Zhao
Xiake, she stumbled and drowned in the reservoir five years ago, right?” “Wha…!” The woman’s face changed suddenly, and she stared at her. With bloodshot eyes, his face slightly distorted by fear and anger, and a pale face, it looks very hideous: “Go! You guys get out of here! Who gave you the power to say these and these at the door of my house? Nonsense! This is my house, get out of here!”
She wanted to close the door, and Zhao Guangcheng refused to let her close the door.
The two were in a stalemate, and the situation became tense for a while.
Ye Jia suddenly spoke and interjected: “Your current situation, I believe you should know it yourself.”
His voice was very calm, and there was a little indifferent alienation in his cold voice, which shocked people’s heart:
“No one will believe what you say, no one can understand your experience,” Ye Jia took a step forward, raised his hand and gently pulled Zhao Guangcheng back from the door, preventing him from blocking the door: “And we are the only ones now. Someone who can help you.”
He lowered his eyelashes and stared at the neurotic woman in front of him. A pair of light amber pupils gleamed in dim light, and his voice was still calm:
“So, are you sure you want to shut us out?”
