Chapter 40: Demon

Because Chi Yan was scared out of his mind, he didn't think of anything and wore the pajamas set that Ye Yingzhi had pa.s.sed to him. Now he felt embarra.s.sed. Currently, he only had three choices: first was to put on the wet one he wore before; the other is to go to the wardrobe in the next room to pick up clothes that thing might have touched; and the third was to not wear anything.

Ye Yingzhi saw him standing on the floor in distress. He closed the “Theory of Justice” and asked him what was wrong. Then he put forward the fourth solution solemnly, “You can wear mine, I don't mind.”

He thought about it and added, “But I don't seem to have a new set of underwear for you to wear. But what you're wearing clean… you wouldn't mind, would you?”

Then he smiled and said soothingly, “Actually, I don't mind if you just wear a clean set of my underwear.”

In fact, after washing, it could be dried quickly with a hair dryer, not to mention, he even had a clothes dryer at home. Ye Yingzhi silently put “Theory of Justice” on the bedside, pretending that he had forgotten about all the modern electrical appliances in his home.

The next day, the first thing Chi Yan did after waking up was to send a message to Old Yuan and ask him about the matters regarding his junior high school friend. These kinds of days were too stimulating and horrifying, and he could not always cling onto Ye Yingzhi, what should he do if he was alone?

He waited anxiously for news, only when he thought of how Old Yuan normally would not get up so early on Sunday could he barely held on to some more patience.

Unexpectedly, Old Yuan got up very early this time. After seeing his message, he called back directly.

“Ruler, are you alone now?” Old Yuan asked over the phone.

Chi Yan took a glance at Ye Yingzhi, who was busy making breakfast in the kitchen, and said, “No, I'm with my roommate.”

Old Yuan's voice came through the electric wave, “Okay, I'll tell you something, you shouldn't be afraid. You'd better stand close to people.”

“You talk.”

“I remembered what you told me yesterday, afterwards I got a message saying that the police found two more bodies in the rental houses near our school, one without legs was hidden under the bed, and the other was skinned… hidden in the cupboard.”

“… The legless man is said to have been dead for almost a week. Doesn't that match the one you said you saw? The skinless one just died yesterday, so I'm just saying if these incidents are related to your seeing ghost or something like that…”

Old Yuan's voice were still echoing from the phone. Chi Yan was so scared that he couldn't keep hold of it properly and the phone dropped on the dining table.

Ye Yingzhi heard the noise and turned to look at him. “What's wrong? What did your cla.s.smate say to you?"

“No, it's all right… I'll talk to you later." Chi Yan was trembling as he told Ye Yingzhi, even though he was saying that he's all right, his eyes were clearly showing how scared he was. 

Ye Yingzhi turned off the stove and sat beside him with two fried eggs, comforting him silently.

Chi Yan then gathered up the courage to pick up the phone again, hearing Old Yuan inquiring at the other end, “h.e.l.lo, Ruler? What's up? What happened just now?”

“Nothing, I was scared all of a sudden and dropped the phone.” Chi Yan tried to reply him as calmly as possible.

Old Yuan comforted him with a few words before saying again, “I asked my junior high school friend and simply told him about your situation. He had a trouble with something and said that he felt your situation was more complicated. He might not be able to solve it. However, he said that his Senior Sister has came to A City two days ago due to some matters. His Senior Sister was a specialist in this sort of situation and is much more skillful than him. I had asked him to make an appointment with her. You should be able to see her soon. Persevere for another two more days."

After thanking Old Yuan and his friend, he hung up and looked at Ye Yingzhi, informing him the news he had just received from Old Yuan. He poked at the fried eggs on the plate, not feeling any appet.i.te at all.

By now, he was certain that he had been hit by something evil, but he didn't know who he had provoked at all.

It suddenly occurred to him that the murderer might have something to do with himself.
