At night, in a residential area.
Hu Haoying returned home happily, carrying a gray bag on his back that did not match his suit and leather shoes.
His wife Wang Jie approached curiously: “What’s the matter? So happy today?”
Hu Haoying winked her eyes mysteriously, lowered her voice and said, “I got my baby.”
He is a curiosity collector of antiques, and his favorite thing to do is to go to the antique market after get off work to see if he can find some rare antique treasures.
Because of his rich experience, he knows a lot in this respect, and sometimes he can really find something good.
But it’s really rare to be so excited.
Wang Jie became interested: “What does it look like? Show me?”
Hu Haoying carefully put the gray bag he was carrying on the table, and took out the thing inside.
It is a very complete image of Guanyin for sending children. The white jade looks warm and delicate under the light.
The only strange thing is that most of the Guanyin statues have half-downcast eyes, looking down compassionately on sentient beings, but this statue’s eyes are raised.
Those eyes were extremely vivid, and the two impurities in the jade were cleverly carved into pupils. The dark eyes looked like they were alive and looked straight towards them.
For some reason, those eyes made Wang Jie feel a little uncomfortable.
She moved her gaze away from the Guanyin statue, and smiled reluctantly: “What is this?”
“Send the child Guanyin statue.” Hu Haoying said without knowing it. He bent down and carefully wiped the dust off the Guanyin statue with a dry rag, and looked at it with some complacency:
“I bought it at the second-hand market. Look at this material. The workmanship is amazing! It only cost me 800 yuan. This time I really found a treasure!”
Wang Jie hurriedly glanced at the jade statue.
The creepy feeling just now appeared again.
She shivered, but seeing her husband so excited, in the end she didn’t tell her true thoughts.
Hu Haoying happily placed the Guanyin statue in his room.
At night, after turning off the lights, Wang Jie tossed and turned.
In the dark room, one could vaguely see the vague outline of the white jade image at the foot of the bed in the distance. Although the face was completely invisible, the dark eyes were still very clear.
Wang Jie hurriedly closed her eyes, rolled her body, and forced the thought that entangled her to be expelled from her mind.
As the night darkened, her consciousness became blurred, and she finally fell asleep gradually.
The next day, Wang Jie was awakened by the trembling voice of her husband:
Wang Jie opened her eyes in a daze, she shrank somewhat coldly, and asked sleepily, “What’s the matter?”
Hu Haoying clutched the quilt tightly with one hand, her face was as pale as paper, her forehead was covered with cold sweat, her pupils tightened, and she stared at Wang Jie’s stomach firmly: “You…your stomach…”
Wang Jie followed Hu Haoying’s gaze and looked over.
I saw my belly bulging high as if I was pregnant in October, and my pajamas were lifted up, revealing the blue-purple belly underneath.
The blood vessels on the belly were violent and looked terrifying, the skin was almost transparent, and something underneath was squirming and undulating, like some kind of terrible living thing.
At that moment, sleepiness was lost.
Wang Jie was born screaming in horror: “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!”
In the almost inhuman screaming, the white jade Guanyin statue sitting quietly at the end of the room, the white jade carved lips curled up like a smile, and a pair of dark eyes quietly looked forward. It was as if he was admiring the sight in front of him.
Standing on the table, the white jade statue looked peaceful and harmless.
“Brother Wu, what do you think?”
Ke Zheng, a dispatched member of the Combat Division, turned around the table and turned to look at Wu Su who was standing aside.
“It should be a cursed item.” Wu Su grabbed his beard and shook his head cautiously: “But I’m not sure if it came from there.”
After all, the game is really too big, there are too many monsters and ghosts in it, and he can’t know them all.
Wu Su turned to look at the logistics department member aside: “What about the victim?”
The member of the logistics department seemed to be in a trance, turning his head halfway, his eyes on the white jade Guanyin statue, as if thinking about something.
“Hey,” Wu Su yelled a little impatiently, “The victim’s situation!”
The member of the logistics department seemed to have reacted and slowly turned his head to look in Wu Su’s direction.
His hair is light brown, his pupils are as glaze as glazed, and his skin is a little sickly white, and he looks lazy: “Oh, the victim’s state has stabilized, and the ghost baby has disappeared.”
Wu Su seemed more entangled.
He tugged at his beard and stuffed a cigarette into his mouth, but when he thought of smoking ban here, he took it down again: “Do you know the reason for the disappearance of ghost tires?”
I dealt with it last night.
Ye Jia yawned and shook his head: “I don’t know.”
It has been almost a week since the ghost spider incident, and life has once again returned to its previous calm state.
Zhao Dong has been discharged from the hospital and has resumed to bear most of the workload of the entire department conscientiously.
Nothing happened on Ji Xuan’s side, even A-mi was quiet as if she had never existed.
Coupled with the extra money he earned from his “part-time job”, everything seems to be moving in a good direction.
Wu Su fiddled with the cigarette in his hand, thinking hard, but in the end he didn’t think of anything. He was a little frustrated, but he gave up and continued to struggle on this: “Forget it, anyway, anyway, this cursed The item is very dangerous, Xiao Ke, wait for you to install it with the special isolation layer made by the bureau and seal it in the treasury. Remember to mark it as “high risk”, so don’t let anyone touch it.”
Ke Zheng nodded and started to work.
Wu Su sighed and rubbed his eyebrows tiredly: “I don’t know what’s going on. Why are there so many cursed things recently?”
As he turned and walked outside, he heard a clear voice behind him: “Team Five.”
Wu Su was taken aback, turned his head and looked behind.
I saw the member of the logistics department looking up at him. After putting away his absent-minded expression, his light-colored eyes looked sincere and clear in the light: “What did you just say?”
“Huh?” Wu Su didn’t react for a while.
“Have a lot of cursed items appear recently?”
“Oh, yes.” Wu Su nodded: “It has only been a few days, and there have been three attacks, and the items are different. The worst thing is that the curses above are more dangerous than the other.”
He rubbed his aching forehead: “The one who was pregnant with the ghost baby yesterday was not bad, at least the symptoms disappeared after staying away from the cursed item, but the other few were not so lucky. They are still on the top of the hospital. Being guarded.”
Ye Jia narrowed his eyes thoughtfully.
He asked: “Where did the victims say they got the cursed items?”
Wu Su shook his head: “No.”
He suddenly remembered something: “Oh, yes, I remember that the husband of the victim of the ghost baby said that he had bought it at an antique market near the city, but when our people got there, they had already looked for it. Not at that booth anymore.”
Wu Su shook his head, seeming very sorry.
Ye Jia lowered his eyes, and his long eyelashes blocked the thoughts that flashed under his eyes.
When he raised his eyes again, all his true emotions had been concealed by him.
“That’s right,” Ye Jia suggested: “I remember that there seems to be a library for cursing cursed items in the bureau. Have you looked for it?”
Wu Su was taken aback: “Do you still have this?”
“Yes, I remember it was built two years ago.” Ye Jia bent his eyes: “Only M City has it.”
And absolutely accurate.
——After all, most of the entries in it were previously anonymously contributed by him.
Wu Su’s face brightened: “Thank you little brother!”
Ye Jia smiled: “It’s nothing, if you ask other people, they will tell you too.”
After speaking, he bowed his head and packed up the papers on the desktop, then turned and walked out.
After leaving the room, the smile on Ye Jia’s lips gradually faded.
Wu Su himself and his team should be able to handle the follow-up of the curse.
Now, he had to find the culprit.
——Coincidentally, Ye Jia knew very well where the other party would be.
The rental room was small and cramped, and it was filled with all kinds of weird things, not letting in any light.
The temperature in the room was extremely low, there was dust everywhere, and there was a disgusting smell of decay, as if something had died here.
Countless bottles and jars are stacked from the wall to the ground, with dirty liquids and twisted limbs floating in them. The shrunken human head covered with black grease is only the size of a fist, quietly staring at the dark world outside the bottle. In addition, there are squashed boxes stacked randomly in the corners, and weird items inside can be seen from the openings of the unsealed boxes-old fans, dolls with a sly smile, and copper coins covered with dust. Etc., etc.
In the center of the room is a table with shiny black hair soaked in oil stains, and a thick pile of renminbi is dazzlingly spread on it.
“How did you make this time?”
A short fat man sitting behind the desk asked.
He was knocking on Erlang’s leg and was picking a yellow tooth with a toothpick.
“Not bad,” a lanky man stood on the other side of the table, nodding and bowing: “There are already four or five regular customers who continue to order goods.”
“Where’s that stealer? Did you find it?”
The lanky man’s face collapsed and he said bitterly, “Not yet… and… and I’m a little worried…”
Humpty Dumpty stopped picking his teeth and narrowed his eyes: “What are you worried about?”
“Let’s, let’s…” Gao Shou said with a sad face: “Aren’t we going to be okay?”
“Cut,” Humpty Dumpty sneered, “What can be the matter? We are all mid-to-high-end customers, promoted among acquaintances, and only a few stolen items were accidentally circulated on the market.”
“Even we can’t find the person who stole the thing. How could the investigation bureau chase these things back to us?”
Humpty Dumpty laughed triumphantly: “The one who can catch me…”
“——Not yet born.”
A soft and smiling voice suddenly sounded in the darkness of the room, and naturally took his words: “Right?”
At that moment, Humpty Dumpty’s face changed.
He stared sharply at the place where the sound came from, his face turned pale with fear, cold sweat leaked from his forehead, his mouth was wide open, but he couldn’t make a sound, as if Seeing a ghost.
A figure appeared silently.
The pitch-black hood casts deep shadows, covering his facial features tightly, revealing only his pale, sharp chin and thin lips with graceful contours.
There was a slight smile on the corners of his lips:
“Dwarf melon, remember what I said?”
The short winter melon was covered in cold sweat, and subconsciously shrank back: “No, no, you…you are not…”
The other party turned a deaf ear, but said gently in a gentle and lazy tone:
“—If you do this business again, I’ll cut off your legs, cut off your fingers, and throw you into the ghost spider’s nest.”
