The group of people in front are still discussing ace’s heroic deeds.
The topic quickly turned from “what ace might be doing now” to “how can he be abducted into the combat department”.
Ye Jia said he was very tired, and refused to continue listening.
He quietly left the central cave, and once again made a careful circle in the spider’s nest. After killing a few slippery fish that had been hidden before, he turned and left the empty insect nest.
Ami waited for him at the entrance of the cave: “How is it?”
Ye Jia: “It has been handled.”
“What about those humans?”
“I didn’t find anything.” Ye Jiamian said without changing his face: “It’s not enough to be afraid.”
Ami patted him on the shoulder and praised unreservedly: “It’s so beautiful, I will definitely talk to Wang nicely when I go back!”
Ye Jia hesitated for a while: “That…”
Ami: “Huh? Any questions?”
Although there is a barrier of smog like gunpowder smoke, but I don’t know why, Ami just saw a trace of shyness from the other party:
“Is there a salary in our business?”
“Of course!” Ami said proudly with a chested chest, “The king’s treatment here is the highest among all the lord of ghosts!”
“Ah, but…” Ye Jia coughed: “The job that the king gives me now is to enter the human institution and hide. For my life in the human society to be guaranteed, shouldn’t it…”
His tail is slightly elongated, as if to suggest something.
It thought for a while, and suddenly realized: “Oh! You are talking about human currency!”
Ye Jia got excited: “Yes, yes, yes!”
“No.” Ami answered decisively.
Ye Jia: “…”
“However, I will mention your request to Wang, maybe you can discount your salary.” As if aware of Ye Jia’s murderousness, Ami’s words changed: “You don’t have to worry about the treatment. ”
Hearing this, Ye Jia was very moved: “Thank you, good brother!”
Just when they were about to separate, A-mi seemed to feel something suddenly, and he moved for a while and took out the strangely-shaped compass before.
The surface that had become blank is transformed again
“Sun,” Ami cursed in a low voice: “There is one left.”
Ye Jia went over: “Huh?”
“It’s also a shadow ghost.” Ami said coldly: “It was estimated to have been hidden in the shadow before, and the compass did not find its location.”
Ye Jia asked: “Is it far?”
Ami put the compass away and said in a gloomy tone: “It’s nearby.”
Ye Jia sighed silently.
——It seems that I can’t get off work for the time being.
They left the abandoned construction site and ran towards the residential area on the side under the cover of night.
It is close to the suburbs and has a small population.
Just two blocks away from the construction site is an old-fashioned neighborhood.
The buildings are low and the planning is messy, like a corner abandoned by a fast-developing city.
Behind the community is a dead and desolate path, with aging street lights flickering irregularly, making a harsh electric noise.
Under the street lamp, a dim yellow light fell on the bumpy road, barely dispelling a little dark night.
Pedestrians walked forward in a hurry, flinching involuntarily as they passed by.
It was obviously summer night, but the cold wind just now seemed to blow into the bones.
The man tightened his collar subconsciously, and instinctively looked up into the darkness around him.
The night makes the road and surrounding buildings seem distant and blurred.
He instinctively stopped, and looked at the path that he had walked thousands of times in front of him in a panic.
For some reason, there was something in the dark surrounding him that made him unsure, as if… something was waiting for him.
A sense of fear that seemed to originate from instinct clamored wildly in his mind, making him afraid to take a step forward.
Is it an illusion?
Just as the man hesitated, suddenly! The shadow outside the street lamp expanded at a weird speed. In the next second, a few hands slammed out of the darkness and grabbed his ankle tightly.
“Ahhhhh!!!” The man let out a scream in horror, and he was dragged to the ground.
He struggled frantically, his fingernails made messy white scratches on the ground, but he couldn’t get rid of the fuzzy hand on his ankle: “Help!”
A second before the man was desperately dragged into the darkness–
Suddenly, there was a sound of a sharp blade breaking through the air.
It is very light, fleeting, almost suspected to be my own imagination.
However, in the next second, a terrifying scream came out from the darkness ahead, as sharp as a scratch on the glass with a blade, piercing the listener’s eardrum like an awl.
The fuzzy black hand clasped on the man’s ankle seemed to be painful, and it retreated backwards like a snake.
In extreme panic, the man raised his head and looked into the darkness in front of him.
In a place where the street light could not be illuminated, there seemed to be a tall figure standing silently in the shadow, like a black silhouette, silently staring in this direction.
The man’s hair straightened up instantly.
He dared not look any more, turned around with a pale face, and stumbled in the opposite direction.
in the dark.
Ye Jia retracted his gaze and turned to look at the shadow ghost in front of him.
The shadow ghost who was injured by Ye Jia on the opposite side made a hissing sound of resentment, and thick Yin Qi gushed out of its wound. The vague facial features changed in the dark, and the hungry and malicious gaze stuck tightly. In Ye Jia, he seemed to be examining the strength of his opponent.
“I know what you are thinking,” Ye Jia chuckled, “but I’m sorry.”
He stepped back sideways, his voice soft and lazy: “…Your opponent is not me this time.”
Behind Ye Jia, Ami’s figure slowly consolidated.
The figure of the shadow ghost on the opposite side became stiff: “…is it you?”
It seemed to finally realize what the ghost in front of him was doing, and quickly turned around to flee in the direction it came, as if it wanted to escape.
——Unfortunately, it is too late.
The distorted black shadow swelled in Ami’s body, splitting into a terrifying and distorted huge body, and rushed towards the escaped shadow ghost, pulling it out of the shadow where he was trying to hide.
The shadow ghost had to turn around to fight.
They quickly entangled everything fiercely.
The strong yin air rushed frantically around, and almost the entire block was enveloped in a cold and evil atmosphere. The darkness spread, the already dim street lamp was flooded like fluorescent light, and the sad and angry screams were mixed in. The scalp is numb.
In just a few minutes, the victory or defeat is already divided.
The darkness retreated to the spot a little bit, and the street lamp flickered twice and lit up again.
The shadow ghost was pulled under the street lamp by A-mi. It had lost its obvious human form, and was tightly clinging to the ground like some kind of wet mollusk. It squirmed its body and drew back with difficulty.
“I, I won’t betray the king…” The shadow ghost’s voice trembled and feared: “You, you have to believe me, I’m just confused for a while…”
“Of course I believe you.” Ami slowly approached the opponent and said coldly:
“However, a momentary betrayal is also a betrayal, and it also requires a price.”
Its body shape spread out like a plane, like a huge mouth, silently biting down at the opponent!
“Wait! Wait!” The voice of the shadow ghost opposite became sharp and high-pitched: “I can exchange! I have information here, the information you want! Exchange my life!”
“What can you know?” Ami’s predator stopped, and laughed unscrupulously: “Can you know what power is hidden behind the insect mother from your position?”
“You don’t have the information we want at all,” Ami sneered.
“Hehe, hehehehe…” The shadow ghost’s body was close to the ground, flowing slowly like a fluid, and let out a miserable laugh: “No, I have, I have, and it’s your king. Most wanted……”
It lifted its blurred head and said slowly:
“—I know where ace is.”
This time, A-mi really stopped and narrowed his eyes: “What?”
“I saw him…” The Shadow Ghost hissed, “He’s in M City.”
“That iconic sickle, yes…”
Its figure slowly solidified, and its deliberately lowered voice was like a devil’s murmur: “I saw it when I was looking for food…that school…”
Without warning, a ray of bright cold light flickered on Ye Jia’s fingertips for a moment, and then was quickly engulfed by the thick and dark forest cold ghost air.
The shadow ghost did not even have time to make a sound, its body collapsed and softened like a leaking balloon.
“Hey!” Ami was anxious: “What are you doing!”
Ye Jia’s voice didn’t have any unnecessary mood swings: “Look at its feet.”
Ami looked at the place pointed out by Ye Jia, and saw that the shadow ghost’s incompletely melted foot had quietly plunged into the darkness on the side, and could use that shadow to slip away in the next second. .
“It’s delaying time.” Ye Jia said.
A-mi was a little upset: “I’m sorry, because Wang really attaches great importance to this aspect, so I relax my guard when it mentions it.”
It bent down and reclaimed the dead body of the shadow ghost into its body.
Ye Jia calmly breathed a sigh of relief.
After Ami recovered its body, he walked forward with Ye Jia.
It sighed a little regretfully: “Oh, but you are still too quick to start. Shadow ghosts are all races that don’t know how to lie. Although it is indeed expected to take the opportunity to slip away, it may really know something. Woolen cloth.”
Based on the key words that it has just revealed, it is estimated that it knows better than all the other ghosts.
Ye Jia looked away silently.
“However, I can understand.” Ami patted Ye Jia on the shoulder empathetically: “After all, you admire the king so much, you definitely don’t want him to find an ace.”
Ye Jia: “…”
Ami continued without noticing: “But I assure you that few of those rumors are true now. How can Wang be so wise and magical, how could he be influenced by a human? The reason why he needs to find that human is so much. For other reasons.”
Ye Jia’s curiosity was aroused: “What’s the reason?”
A-mi seemed hesitant.
Ye Jia took a deep breath, then gritted his teeth and said with some difficulty: “After all, after all, the king is my…I admire the object, so I want to know more about him——”
“Then why don’t you come and ask me in person?”
A low voice sounded from behind, abrupt and clear in the deadly dark night.
