Compared with a certain inorganic dead object, the city is more like a living body built of reinforced concrete. It breathes, pumps, never 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 kind of 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, shuddering 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 faintly heard.
The two huddled together, closing their eyes and plugging their ears, as if this would be able to keep everything out of their homes.
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 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 were 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.
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 been walking for more than half an hour, but he still didn’t see the end of the alley.
Wang Shize shivered abruptly, climbing up his spine with a chill.
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.
There was a faint sound of water droplets at the end of the alley,
Suddenly, Wang Shize stopped his steps suddenly, as if he realized something, his face changed suddenly, and he looked at the alley in front of him distorted and horrified, as if the abyss of **** was waiting for him there.
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 shrouded in darkness, submerged him silently, and only the rushing heartbeat and his messy gasping sound could be heard in his ears.
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.
The screams cut through 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.
There was still peace in the surrounding streets, and no one seemed 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 addicted to his mobile phone and couldn’t get out of it.
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 get into 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 floating 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 couldn’t help speeding up.
A **** figure suddenly turned out from the entrance of the alley in front of me, stumbled forward and screamed: “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ——”
Wang Shize stepped on vain steps, staring at a pair of horrified eyeballs, and firmly grasped the first person he saw:
“Help me! Help me!!”
Ye Jia was caught off guard and was rushed.
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.
At this moment, a high pitched octave suddenly sounded behind him: “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ye Jia: “…”
Damn, it’s better to catch up early than 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 in a sad voice:
After asking the basic information, the police looked up:
“Let’s talk about it, what did it look like?”
Ye Jiayin went to the point that he was aware of the abnormal yin qi fluctuations, and then explained his own experience just now.
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, eighty-nine points were still there.
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 after filling it out.”
While filling in, Ye Jia glanced at the police officer opposite: “What’s wrong? Did something happen?”
“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, the wound on his head was caused by his own fall.”
He took the form from Ye Jia, put it aside, and exclaimed 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 over and picked up the two shopping bags under his feet and walked outside the police station.
The lights outside are already on, and the bright traffic and the bustling crowd are intertwined, but this group of lively scenes cannot dispel the haze between Ye Jia’s eyebrows.
In the alley just now, he clearly felt the existence of Li Gui.
And the man who grabbed him tightly, although the police said that he had nothing serious, 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. ?
For some reason, the smell of the ghost gave him a strange sense of familiarity inexplicably.
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 have a sense of familiarity.
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.
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’s this layer?”
“Yes, it must be true.”
“This, this one?”
These two voices sounded so familiar, and Ye Jia suddenly froze in the doorway.
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 were dark, as if he saw the vacation flapping his wings away from him: “…”
