Chapter 1211: My House of Horrors
Translator: Lonelytree Editor: Millman97
The red dress flowed like blood, it was decorated with the black patterns that radiated power. Resentment and despair coagulated into actual materials to act as decoration. Zhang Ya stepped out of Chen Ge’s shadow, stomping on the wailing of dead souls. The horror that surpa.s.sed Red Spectres stunned everyone. Who would have thought beauty could be so mesmerizing and captivating. Chen Xiao and Xu Meng stood dumbly on the steps, both of them had been shocked out of their mind.
“A Demon G.o.d? The girl that you speak of is a Demon G.o.d?!” Due to how overly agitated he was, Chen Ge’s father found his words stammering. He could guess that Chen Ge would find spectres to work for him and he would have known that the Haunted House would continue to flourish under Chen Ge’s management but it never even crossed his mind that his son would one day bring back a Demon G.o.d to meet them.
“Yes, her name is Zhang Ya.” Chen Ge very naturally reached out to hold Zhang Ya’s hand. This caused Xu Meng and Chen Xiao’s eyes to twitch. They were worried that Zhang Ya might suddenly reach out to snap Chen Ge’s neck due to anger. The two of them had just awakened from their coma. When they returned to the Haunted House, they had been introduced to a non-stop series of trauma. In fact, the two of them had started to suspect whether they had fallen back into the hospital director’s illusion? But once they gave it some thought, they realized that could not be true because even the cursed hospital would not make up something like this.
“Other than his good personality, what other positive traits that you see in him?” Xu Meng turned to ask Zhang Ya. She watched Chen Ge grow up under her nose, she knew that her son was incredibly wonderful but that was only in comparison to other people. Facing Chen Ge’s mother’s question, Zhang Ya was as silent as before. She even nudged even closer to hide behind Chen Ge. Those with eyes could see that this Demon G.o.d had a very heavy reliance on Chen Ge.
“We have gone through so much together. How about we take a tour of the Haunted House for now and then we can find a time to sit down and chat over it?”
“We can tour the Haunted House any time, I think we should focus on Zhang Ya for now.” Chen Xiao and Xu Meng said at the same time. Their own son was in a romantic relations.h.i.+p in a Demon G.o.d, the tour of the Haunted House could wait indefinitely until they got to the bottom of this.
“Aren’t you guys tired? It is almost midnight already.” Chen Ge said with a bitter smile on his face. He was not expecting his father and mother to have such a big reaction to this development.
“We have been asleep for a whole year already, we cannot be more refreshed even if we try.”
“Okay then, I will go find us a restaurant and we can have get a gathering there.” Chen Ge summoned all of his employees. He switched on his phone and selected a high cla.s.s restaurant at Jiujiang which had a ballroom to rent. There were currently too many employees at the Haunted House that they could not all fit into Yan Danian’s manga anymore. Therefore, many baleful spectres and lingering spirits had no choice but to masquerade as Chen Ge’s shadow. Carrying the backpack, once Chen Ge departed from the theme park, the whole street was submerged under an oppressive atmosphere. The parade of a hundred ghost was not enough to describe that horror and terror.
There was no taxi on the road. Chen Ge had Tang Jun drive the last bus of route 104. He was to ferry Chen Ge, his parents as well as his other colleagues to the restaurant that was lucky enough to be selected by Chen Ge. It was already midnight, so naturally the restaurant was already close for business. Chen Ge first had Zhang Yi come out to edit the security’s memory and then he had Qiumei and Tong Tong sneak into the surveillance centre to temporarily shut down all the cameras.
After all of that were done, he flipped through the manga and one after another employees walked out. The employees who were good at cooking voluntarily walked into the kitchen, the lingering spirits of the students were very excited, as they chattered among themselves. There was nothing they loved more than this kind of ‘outing’. Seeing how the employees cooperate among themselves as they set up the restaurant, the whole scene felt so surreal to Chen Xiao and Xu Meng. The reason behind spectres’ existence was their resentment, they were creatures of pure resentment and hatred so they would never expect that the spectres would be able to coexist to harmoniously with Chen Ge.
“We will be booking the whole place tonight. After the sun comes up, I will pay of course.” Chen Ge showed off the money in his bank account through his phone. “I am not that interested in money, this number is just a bonus from the expansion of the Haunted House.” Before Chen Ge could continue, he was knocked lightly on his head by his father. “If you are not interested in that, feel free to donate some to me. Ever since my wedding, I have not seen that much money in my life anymore.” The family of three walked into the restaurant chatting and joking among themselves. They came to the VIP lounge that was situated at the top floor. At this place, they were given the perfect view of the entire Jiujiang at night.
The employees started to serve the food and Chen Ge summoned out Zhang Ya. Initially Chen Ge’s parents were worried about Chen Ge and Zhang Ya, they kept asking them about their plan for the future, they wanted to know how they were going to spend their lives together. But once Chen Ge brought up Zhang Ya’s past and the things that they had gone through together, the att.i.tude Chen Ge’s parents had towards them had a complete 180. This was especially true for Xu Meng. She moved her chair to sit right next to Zhang Ya, like Zhang Ya was already her own daughter. She held Zhang Ya’s hands out of empathy and she whispered something to Zhang Ya.
Xu Meng and Chen Xiao were particularly kind individuals. A long time they had adopted the soul of Luo Ruoyu, at the time, Chen Ge had the feeling that they treated the adopted Luo Ruoyu much better than they did him. Now this incident appeared to be repeating itself. Xu Meng stopped asking about Zhang Ya’s past, instead she turned her attention onto Chen Ge. She hoped that Chen Ge understood a relations.h.i.+p was a completely different thing from a promise to spend a lifetime together. She wanted Chen Ge to think very clearly about this and take every single preparation that he could. She did not wish for anyone of the two to get hurt from this.
The party lasted for a long time. The employees technically were unable to consume alcohol but they appeared to be on quite a buzz. They talked and laughed among themselves, a simple bliss was buried deep inside their heart. Before this, they were tortured and entrapped by the memory from their past but because of their encounter with Chen Ge, they could now openly discuss their future with others.
The night was eventually coming to an end. Just as the sun was about to come up, the employees worked together to replace everything back to its place. Comparing the items that they had exhausted, Chen Ge drew some money out from the bank and placed them on the counter. He also left behind a note, of course, the note was written by one of the employees as well.
Walking out from the restaurant, Chen Ge’s parents carried Chen Ge’s backpack and told him they were going to head back home first. They wanted to give Chen Ge and Zhang Ya some alone time. Both of them had walked this path before. They knew that Chen Ge and Zhang Ya probably had plenty of things to talk about after the meeting with the boy’s parents so they did not want to stand in the way and disturb them.
The black hair fluttered in the mind, Chen Ge and Zhang Ya strode down the deserted street. This whole scene felt like a déjà vu, they appeared to have been through something similar in a dream before. The various memories from the past rose in their heart. The two of them sidled close to each other. They walked through the night to welcome the arrival of a new day.
“Tomorrow, we shall go to the registry office to make some enquiry, it is about time we put down the past and try to start a new chapter in our life.”
The sun rose up like normal and the sunlight chased away the darkness. New Century Park opened for business at 9 am. A very long queue had already lined up in front of the Haunted House.
“Senior, you are still recovering from your injury, how about we skip the tour today?” He San was trying his best to leave but unfortunately he was under great scrutiny from Zuo Han.
“There is going to be a new scenario opening to the public today, even if we are not going to visit it, it is fun coming here to watch other people make the attempt.” Zuo Han swept the group from Jiujiang Medical University behind him. His brows were screwed together. “Where is Gao Ruxue? She still refused to come?”
“yes, senior said she is not feeling so well.”

“In that case, we shall go visit her together one day.” Zuo Han still had something else he wanted to say but his words were cut off by the hubbub that came from the crowd.
“The employees have prepared something for me?” Chen Ge put the down the pencil he was holding. He walked out of the staff breakroom. The Haunted House appeared to be incredibly quiet that night, like all the ghosts had gone mission.
“Are they outside?” Pulling back the thick curtains, the blinking fairy lights glittered like a dreamscape, they were as brilliant as the stars in the night sky. New Century Park was usually so quiet at night but that day, it was as bright as day, the employees had prepared so many things to transform this place into a scenery that looked as if it had been pulled right out of a fairy tale.
“What is all these? What are you guys up to…” Before Chen Ge could finish, Ol’ Zhou walked towards him. He handed a small box that was expensive and exquisite over to Chen Ge. “All of us have combined our money to purchase this, this is as far as we can help you.”
Walking out from the Haunted House, Chen Ge was led by his employees to the ferris wheel, this was the centre of the theme park. Holding the small box, Chen Ge was rather fl.u.s.tered. He looked around him, his parents and his employees were looking at him with eyes of antic.i.p.ation and encouragement. The ferris wheel behind him started to move slowly. The lights chased away the darkness and the cold. Chen Ge sucked in a deep breath. He held up the small box with one hand. He uttered softly, “Zhang Ya.”
The captivating beauty floated up behind Chen Ge. Like usual, she had been guarding at Chen Ge’s side. Turning around, Chen Ge looked at Zhang Ya. With everyone watching him, Chen Ge knelt on one knee as he opened the small box. “For our lives together, we shall stay like each other’s shadow, that is the promise that I have given you.” He lifted the wedding ring out from the box and slid in on Zhang Ya’s finger. Chen Ge asked the question in the gentlest voice, “Will you marry me?”
Zhang Ya did not expect Chen Ge to pose the question. The blood in her eyes faded away. The heart of the Demon G.o.d started to race with excitement. After a long time, Zhang Ya leaned on Chen Ge, she looked into Chen Ge’s eyes and her lips moved slightly. “I will.”
Pulling himself up, Chen Ge pulled Zhang Ya into a warm hug. “I will stay by your side forever so that you will never be alone and sad again.”
In the brightly-lit theme park, under the slowly turning ferris wheel, Chen Ge and Zhang Ya embraced each other, it appeared like they were embracing the goodness of the world at the same time. The employees who did not even dare to breathe too loudly all exploded into cheers when they saw this. They were feeling actual joy from the bottom of their hearts.
That night New Century Park lit up like Fourth of July, the employees parties into the night. Many citizens that lived near the theme park and the cars that pa.s.sed the place all witnessed then. From that night onwards, another scary urban legend appeared at Jiujiang.
After midnight, some of the attractions at a theme park at Western Jiujiang would move on their own and even though the place was supposed to be close already, you could see hear the laughter and cheers of the visitors. According to some trusted insider information, the reason behind this ghost story probably had to do with a Haunted House situated inside the theme park.
Some people said that place was heaven on earth, others called it the 19th floor of h.e.l.l. Some even claimed that the place connected nightmare and reality, it was the presentation of deepest despair and also permanent salvation.
