Ye Jia got up from the ground with a gloomy expression.
He looked around and saw that his entire apartment seemed to have been swept by a storm, from the bedroom, the living room, to the kitchen, all in a mess, only the bathroom escaped.
Basically…the possibility of relocating people is not big anymore.
Ye Jia sighed and rubbed his eyebrows with a headache.
He stepped over the pieces of furniture on the floor, walked to the hallway, reached out and opened the door—
A small figure fell in.
He obviously sat leaning against the door all the time, and as soon as the support behind his back disappeared, he lost his balance and fell into the door.
The young man lay on the ground, blinked his scarlet eyes, looking at the shocked face of the young man above his head, his voice was muted: “…good morning.”
Ye Jia: “…”
My head started to hurt again.
He took a deep breath: “How long have you been here?”
Ji Xuan got up from the ground. He shook his head. He looked very well-behaved and sensible, even a little pitiful:
“It didn’t take long.”
Ye Jia clenched the doorknob’s fingers tightly.
Pretend, just pretend to me.
He raised his eyes and fell on the ground beside Ji Xuan.
Two boxes of biscuits, an apple, two bottles of milk, and a large box of juice were neatly arranged on the ground.
Ye Jia was stunned:
“…Where did it come from?”
Ji Xuan followed Ye Jia’s gaze and looked over, “Oh, these.”
He thoughtfully: “The neighbor gave it.”
During the time he was sitting here, there were always people passing by, and then distressedly asked why he was sitting here alone.
The thin young man sat quietly in the corridor with his back leaning against the tightly closed door. His dark eyes were big and bright, his small face was clean and beautiful, and his voice was still childish and he looked sensible. Pitiful again: “My mother kicked me out, and I came to live with my brother.”
—In a sense, he didn’t lie.
“He won’t let you in?” The neighbor felt doubly distressed.
“It’s not like that,” the boy sighed a little disappointed, and shook his head: “It’s all my fault. I’m waiting for my brother to calm down.”
“Then you can’t shut out children! Especially in this world,” the neighbor was a little angry: “This adult is too irresponsible.”
He asked kindly: “Would you like to come into my house and wait?”
The boy pursed his lips and smiled: “No.”
When he found that the other party was determined, the neighbor had to give up, but forcibly stuffed him with a lot of snacks.
Every time a person passes by, such a conversation will always happen once.
So there are more and more snacks around him.
Ji Xuan said thoughtfully: “Humans are really passionate.”
Ye Jia: “…”
He seemed to have guessed what happened.
I now have a high probability of social death.
He gritted his teeth and said, “Are you pretending that the child is addicted?”
Ji Xuan took a step into the room.
Under the faint morning light and the dim light of the corridor, the small shadow on the ground instantly elongated.
The tall man lowered his eyes, and his deep and cold eyebrows were like sculptures under the intertwined light of light and dark. The scarlet and dark eyes were half-hidden under his long eyelashes, staring intently at the youth in front of him: “That…you Like me more?”
His voice was low, with a hoarse smile in his deep voice: “Brother?”
The distance between the two people instantly narrowed, and the compelling aura of the adult man spread out unreservedly, and the tips of their noses almost touched each other.
Ye Jia took a breath and took a step back abruptly, opening the distance between the two.
The light-colored eyes gleamed with cold and hostile light in the dark.
Looking at the young man who was immediately scared away, Ji Xuan sighed regretfully.
Obviously he knew that he was the only person in his adult and childhood state, and he kept saying that he would not be soft-hearted, but he was always unable to harden his heart on children.
My brother always looks like this… it’s so cute.
—In this case, we can’t blame him for taking advantage of this.
Ye Jia said coldly: “No matter what it looks like, it has nothing to do with me.”
Ji Xuan nodded with a smile, “I understand.”
Ye Jia looked at the man in front of him cautiously, took a step back again a little later, and after keeping a certain safe distance from him, asked slowly:
“What is the real reason for your cooperation with humans?”
Ji Xuan frowned injured:
“Brother, can you actually not believe me? Everything I said in the game was the truth.”
Ye Jia narrowed his eyes slightly, looked at him carefully, and did not answer.
But all his body language was answering Ji Xuan’s questions—yes, he did not believe him at all.
“Okay.” Ji Xuan reduced the playful look on his face, and got serious: “I know I can’t make you believe me now, but our purpose is at least the same at this stage.”
He curled his lips carelessly, and a gloomy coldness passed through the depths of his scarlet eyes:
“After all, with her here, what the king of me does is not stable.”
An unshakable authority is pressing on his head, and he is always instigating other S-level ghosts to challenge his rule. After a long time, it is indeed greasy.
This reason seemed to convince Ye Jia.
After staring at Ji Xuan for a few seconds, he finally let go: “…okay.”
“But I need to see your sincerity in cooperation.” Ye Jia said: “My reward is still on the hatred list…”
Before he finished speaking, Ji Xuan immediately expressed his attitude: “I will remove it now.”
—At least the goal tonight has been achieved.
Ye Jia wanted to close the door.
But he found that he didn’t know when, the other party had already stepped into the threshold of his own home and entered the hallway.
Ye Jia: “…”
Made a mistake.
Ji Xuan took a step inside slowly again: “Then…Brother, should you show some sincerity from time to time?”
Ye Jia’s muscles suddenly tightened.
His voice seemed to be squeezed from between his teeth: “What do you want?”
Ji Xuan smiled briefly: “Don’t be so nervous.”
There was a scarlet gap in the space around him, and a piece of paper fell lightly on his palm.
He handed the paper to Ye Jia:
“I just want you to be my designated matchmaker in the game.”
Ye Jia glanced at the content on it.
He just glanced at it in a hurried manner last night and did not have time to see clearly-this was indeed a direct order issued by the top management of the administration, and it was not faked.
“Today your superior should inform you of this.” Ji Xuan looked down at Ye Jia and said in a low voice, “I just want to share this news with you in advance…Brother.”
Ye Jia glanced at him coldly, obviously not eating his set:
“Yes, what else?”
Ji Xuan sighed silently in his heart.
—Sure enough, this trick works well when pretending to be a child.
He didn’t change his face and said, “From today on, I should contact you in the state of my previous juvenile body.”
Ye Jia frowned: “Why?”
“Humans don’t know what I am now, but the ghosts and monsters are different.” Ji Xuan said lightly, “…you don’t want your current identity to be exposed, do you?”
He knew that, in a sense, Ye Jia was a very predictable person.
Although the current series of events have brought him back into the center of the vortex, he still longs to return to a peaceful and stable real life after everything is over. He doesn’t want to be the savior that has attracted much attention. On the contrary, he prefers the logistics. The identity of ordinary members of the Ministry.
Therefore, even if he walked in front of people as ace and participated in the war, he still hid his existence as “Ye Jia” deeply.
Ji Xuan liked this feeling very much.
In this world, he alone can occupy the two worlds of his brother.
This idea made him feel extremely satisfied.
—So, Ji Xuan was sure that he would not reject his proposal.
He added a fire again: “Moreover, starting from today, you are my only docking person, so I will never appear in front of your colleagues in the Administration Bureau again, and they will never know my existence. ”
Sure enough, Ye Jia fell into deep thought.
After a long time, he nodded: “…Okay.”
The smile on Ji Xuan’s lips deepened.
He stretched out his hand: “Happy cooperation.”
Ye Jia glanced at him coldly, stretched out his hand and shook the opponent’s dangling palm, the accent fell on the first two words: “For the time being, happy cooperation.”
Before he had time to withdraw his hand, he felt that the palm of his hand was rapidly getting smaller.
Ye Jia was taken aback, and for a while forgot to let go of his hand.
The young man in front of him stretched out his other hand, squinted his eyes and smiled. He held his wrist in an inch, and shook it gently:
“—It’s not bad for a long time.”
Ye Jia broke free from his hand as if being scalded, frowning tightly.
His lips moved, as if he wanted to say something, but remembering what he had just agreed to, he swallowed the words abruptly.
Ji Xuan seemed to have not found it.
He looked around the room in front of him that had almost been rotten to pieces, and raised his eyebrows in surprise:
“What happened to your room?”
Ye Jia followed his gaze and looked over.
He seemed to remember this thing in his room, his expression instantly gloomy, and gritted his teeth and said, “…the good thing about your fish.”
Oh? Is there such a good thing?
Ji Xuan’s eyes lit up.
He concealed his joy without leaking, with a look of guilt and regret on his face: “I’m sorry, it’s my fault.”
Ye Jia frowned and looked at him warily.
Ji Xuan said: “I have a few properties under my name, you can see where you want to live…”
Before he finished speaking, Ye Jia interrupted him without hesitation:
“No, just lose money.”
Ji Xuan nodded, “Of course, the money must be compensated.”
He changed the conversation: “But you have to find a place to live before your room is closed, right?”
Ye Jia: “…I live in a hotel.”
“If you don’t want me to disturb you, I won’t take a half step.” A smile flashed in Ji Xuan’s eyes: “What is the difference between staying in a hotel and staying with me?”
The difference is huge.
Ye Jia didn’t want to have any involvement in his personal life. Naturally, the farther away from him, the better-living in any real estate under Ji Xuan’s name would run counter to his original intention.
He shook his head resolutely: “No, thank you.”
Ji Xuan followed good advice: “You can watch me up close.”
Ye Jia smiled, but his eyes didn’t mean much happily: “If this kind of place still needs me to monitor, I don’t think this cooperation will continue to exist.”
Although it was still a pity, Ji Xuan stopped persuasively.
He has achieved his original goal tonight, and if he pushes too close, it may be too late.
“Okay.” Ji Xuan looked around at the apartment that seemed to have been destroyed by the wind, and said: “I will be responsible for finding someone to repair your room-after all, this is my fault. You shouldn’t refuse this. Bar?”
Ye Jia thought for a while, and replied reluctantly: “…Yes.”
It can be regarded as each stepping back and reaching a consensus.
He threw the key to Ji Xuan: “As soon as possible.”
The corners of Ji Xuan’s lips smiled deeper: “Of course.”
Ye Jia packed up some of his personal belongings and moved into a hotel not far away.
Sure enough, the next day, relevant instructions were issued from above, letting him become the designated docking person of “a certain high-level ghost who is willing to cooperate”. This matter is highly confidential. In other words, in the entire M city branch, only Wu Su The two of him knew that there was still a high-level ghost who was willing to cooperate, and only Ye Jia had the authority to contact each other.
In the box is a new phone again.
Ye Jia took it in his hand and played with it.
Even if he doesn’t know much about modern technology, he can tell that this mobile phone is much more advanced and more confidential than the one Liu Zhaocheng gave him before.
But Ye Jia still felt a little ridiculous-using a mobile phone to contact Li Gui, this kind of thing was impossible for him to imagine ten years ago.
There is only one contact person in the phone.
The other person’s portrait is a q version of the **** of death holding a sickle, which looks very cute.
Ye Jia squinted his eyes, suspecting that the other party meant something.
While he was staring at the phone, the other party’s message jumped out:
It was a little emoticon that was jumping around and happily.
Ye Jia: “…”
His hands are itchy.
My fingertips stayed on the black button for a few seconds, and finally got the upper hand with dedication—for work, forget it.
He turned off the phone screen and left it aside.
The other side.
Ji Xuan looked down at the illuminated mobile phone screen in his hand, and the upward arc of the corner of his mouth couldn’t be suppressed.
Although there was no response from the other party’s dialog from beginning to end, he was sure that the other party saw his message.
Ji Xuan glanced at the book he regarded as rubbish.
One of them came into view-“to get the contact information of the other party”.
Not only that, but he will also be the only contact in the other party’s phone.
This satisfies a certain deeply suppressed desire for exclusivity in his heart.
Ji Xuan laughed happily and put the phone away.
At the door, the shadow ghost who sneaked in with the probe was so scared that he took a breath of air-conditioning, panicked, and hurriedly backed out.
Several other high-ranking ghosts surrounded it, lowered their voices, and asked cautiously: “How?”
The shadow ghost shook his head in a daze, “…the situation is terrible.”
After the king killed the opponent’s leader, the rest of the monsters turned into dust, and the war was over.
But Wang became strange.
Not only has the reward for ace removed, but actually… actually…
Ami said with a heavy face, slowly:
“I… I just saw that Wang was smiling at the phone screen.”
The other ghosts gasped in shock: “Wh, what?!”
“I suspect the king might be cursed…”
Before Ami had finished speaking, she felt a chill behind her back.
It turned its head slowly.
The door behind them was open, and the blood gu fish appeared behind them, watching the group of ghosts in front of them with a pair of dark eye sockets.
In the distance, Ji Xuan sat on the throne, slightly narrowed his **** eyes, and asked slowly:
All the ghosts trembled: “…King!”
Ji Xuan hooked her lips: “Then I will find something for you to do.”
As a result, after being forced to play a game with the blood gu fish for an hour, all the ghosts wanted to cry without tears, especially Ami, who was taken care of, was even more tired and paralyzed on the ground, panting like a cow.
They are too naive.
Sure enough, the king is still that moody and terrible ghost king… It is impossible to curse or something!
After the first batch of recruitment brochures were issued, the Supernatural Administration soon added a lot of fresh blood. Although it was said that the follow-up work left by Hyakki Yexing had not been processed, it also greatly shared the pressure of the original staff.
Even before the incident was exposed, their workload was reduced a bit.
The old employees of the logistics department basically have new tasks now. Ye Jia is now working in the department of new recruit training, Zhao Dong stays in the logistics department to handle the remaining tasks, and Cheng Cezhi is assigned to interview the new recruits in the human resources department.
Although the outside world was turbulent, Ye Jia’s life was particularly fulfilling and peaceful for the next week. He went to work from the hotel to the bureau every day, and sometimes brought some new employees to go out to work.
During this period of time, although Ye Jia had never returned any news from Ji Xuan, the other party still enjoyed it and harassed him online every day. Fortunately, this kind of harassment only remained online. The impact is also great. After directly defying the mother’s order, it is estimated that he will be busy for a while.
Until M City issued the second batch of recruitment brochures.
—The content is no different from the last time, except that a very shallow pattern is printed on the back. If you don’t look carefully, you can hardly see it.
The rose branches are intertwined into a weird and beautiful pattern, which outlines the three letter variants of ace.
On the day it was sent out, everything was calm, and nothing seemed to have changed.
However, where no one could see, the dark tide began to surge, and uneasy whispers spread underground.
And at the center of that whirlpool, is a small city—M City.
When the dark night fell, the distant sky was enveloped by a thick darkness, and the stars and moonlight were slowly swallowed.
Ye Jia walked on the way from get off work and suddenly stopped.
He raised his head and looked to the sky thoughtfully.
At this moment, the phone in his pocket suddenly buzzed twice, and Ye Jia took out the phone, only to see that the above message came from Cheng Cezhi.
That is a string of addresses, nothing else.
Ye Jia frowned.
He knew this place, it was near the wilderness, almost deserted at night, and few people would go—what did Cheng Cezhifa address for him?
An abandoned factory in m city.
The strong yin air flows in the dark night sky. Compared to other places, the temperature here is much lower. From the black hole door frame and window frame, there is a faint ominous meaning, which makes people instinctively fear and panic. .
The originally empty factory was filled with dark hair at this moment, and it was slowly flowing and wriggling like an ocean.
Cheng Cezhi was struggling with thick black hair as deep as his waist, but he felt like he was trapped in the mud. It was difficult to move a bit no matter what. The hair seemed to be alive, tightly entwining his hands and feet, making him unable to move. Wriggling like a bug.
“Where is ace?” A thin, insidious voice came from the hair that covered the sky, and asked softly.
Cheng Cezhi almost cried: “I really don’t know the ace you said ah ah ah ah!!!”
He left a little bit late today, so he took a shortcut, but he didn’t expect to be kidnapped in the middle of the road.
This is a B-level ghost. As a logistics member, he has no power to fight back.
As a result, not only was he tied to this dark and gloomy place, but he was also constantly being asked where a person he didn’t know was…
To whom and who does not collapse!
“You lied!!!” The voice suddenly became louder, and the insidious meaning became deeper and stronger: “I saw it, and that is his signature. There can be no mistake… It is from you, you know where is he…”
“It’s okay, if you know him…he will come…hehehehe…”
Outside the warehouse.
Four or five people looked at each other.
Zhao Dong broke the silence: “You also received this address?”
Wu Su nodded and turned the phone’s screen to Zhao Dong. The address displayed on it was the address here.
He is now in charge of the recruitment department, and Cheng Cezhi is his subordinate.
He said: “I contacted his family and said he was not home tonight.”
In fact, the reason why he appeared is not only for this reason. After all, Wu Su is also working in the combat department, which is the busiest. An employee suddenly sent him an inexplicable address. It is difficult to trouble him to run. One trip.
However, after the announcement, everything was different.
Because the recruiting department will definitely become the first department targeted.
Therefore, from that time on, Wu Su began to pay more attention to the movement of all employees in the new office, and assigned them more props that could protect themselves.
But it is clear that the accident is unstoppable.
“Don’t worry,” Wu Su tugged at his beard, and said anxiously: “I have already contacted other members of the Combat Division when I set out, and the team should be here soon.”
Ye Jia stood in the dark and did not show up directly.
He raised his head, looked at the factory aside, and sniffed the night breeze—he was very familiar with the smell from inside.
Coincidentally, that ghost… is the boss in the copy he and Ji Xuan met.
Although the level is not high, it is a bit difficult.
Ye Jia couldn’t be sure that the members of the Combat Division could handle it.
He was hesitating whether to find an excuse to leave and go in and save others by himself.
But at this moment, he was slightly startled.
The smell in the factory… has changed.
Ten minutes later, the fully armed members of the Combat Section arrived at the scene, but before they began to deploy the combat plan, the gate of the factory was slowly opened from the inside.
Cheng Cezhi grinned and limped out.
A young girl helped him and walked out.
Wu Su was taken aback: “You…”
The girl grinned at him: “The ghost inside has run away. You can chase it, but I doubt you can catch it.”
Wu Su’s eyes widened: “You are…!”
The girl nodded generously: “Hello, I am maid.”
Ranked 15th in the standings, maid.
She frowned with some annoyance, turned to look at Cheng Cezhi who was standing beside her, and complained: “I wanted to tie him too, but it was obvious that the ghost got on the ground first…”
Cheng Cezhi: “???”
Why? ? ? ?
As if seeing through his breakdown, the girl smiled and said, “Because you are the weakest in the entire department.”
Cheng Cezhi: “…”
It’s okay, it’s annoying to talk more.
Zhao Dong and the medical staff waiting in the back helped Cheng Cezhi to leave.
The girl’s gaze fell on Wu Su, and she smiled slightly: “Since you have recognized me, then I don’t have to hide my purpose-where is the ace?”
Wu Su was already prepared.
He took a deep breath and slowly asked, “What is your purpose for looking for him?”
There was a shy expression on the girl’s face, she touched the ground with her toes and said:
Ye Jia in the distance: “…”
—Since Cheng Cezhi is safe now, he is not needed here for the time being.
He turned around, ready to leave.
Suddenly, Ye Jia felt a familiar breath appear beside him.
An icy smell of blood diffused from the torn ghost mythical creature.
Ye Jia’s back suddenly stiffened.
The boy’s soft and hoarse voice broke the silence, and asked peacefully:
“Brother, who is she?”
