The dreamer stepped back abruptly, his eyes staring at the person who suddenly appeared behind Ye Jia, and his graceful face became hideous: “Ji Xuan…”
Ye Jia turned to look, only to see Ji Xuan slowly coming forward.
His eyebrows are very deep, and he looks particularly oppressive when he is expressionless, and there is a cold and intimidating oozing from his bones.
A pair of scarlet eyes squinted carelessly, looking at each other condescendingly, their pupils slightly dilated, and the look at the bottom of the eyes seemed indifferent and contemptuous.
But only Ye Jia knows… this is because Ji Xuan is still in a period of weakness!
He felt tight.
Although even in the period of weakness, Ji Xuan’s strength would not be too weak. But as a veteran player who has dealt with ghosts for many years, Ye Jia knows very well that the laws in Li ghosts are very similar to those in the natural world.
Normally, Li ghosts will not do anything if they are frightened by the pressure of the ghost king, but once they find that their leader is weak, they will inevitably be distracted, and even attack them—especially when Ji Xuan is now clearly in opposition to his mother. Under the circumstances, many ghosts are actually watching in the dark.
The reason why there hasn’t been too much trouble in the world now, I have to say that a large part of the reason is that the ghosts are scrupulous about this ambiguous king.
Ye Jia refused to let Ji Xuan come to F City, it is precisely because of this.
Once this advantage is lost, the chain reaction that may follow is uncontrollable.
Not far away, the dreamer quickly adjusted his somewhat out-of-control facial expression and restored his calm and composed appearance.
He straightened his sleeves, patted off the dust that did not exist on the high-end fabrics, looked at Ye Jia, and smiled: “It seems that you really want to hit the scene.”
“However, I am not completely unprepared.” The dreamer pulled the chair away and sat down slowly: “Look, my mother has warned us a long time ago. After the puppeteer is caught by you, we will meet sooner or later. ”
He raised his hand and touched the button on the desktop.
In the next second, projection screens slowly floated on the entire wall on the side, and the other three players who entered with Ye Jia—Chen Qingye, Wei Yuechu, and Blast—were projected on them.
The scenes behind the three of them are different, but they are all the same closely watched by something in the dark.
Ye Jia narrowed his eyes and stared at him blankly.
The dreamer said, “All three of them are in my building, right?”
Ye Jia’s expression was slightly sinking, and he stared at the other party steadily.
“Of course… I believe your companions are not weak, and I don’t have the confidence to kill them all at once.” The dream maker held his chin thoughtfully, and said slowly: “So… just in case, I also prepared this.”
He touched the screen again.
The projection on the wall not far away changed instantly, turning into small squares the size of tofu blocks. Each square was a person’s face. Ye Jia recognized the one he had seen downstairs. A few employees, but with more faces are extremely strange.
The smile on the dreamer’s face deepened: “There are more than two hundred employees in my company, and there are thousands of ordinary people who have done normal transactions with me. Each of them has signed a contract with me—labor contract, investment contract. ,wait wait wait…”
He rubbed his cheek with his fingertips: “Of course, they didn’t pledge their souls, but as long as it is a contract, they can definitely be hands and feet, right?”
The dreamer smiled: “If something happens to me, not only your companions will be attacked, all of these, just ordinary people who want to live well… will have to die.”
There was a cunning expression on his face: “I am a ghost, I have never so-called bottom line and humanity, but the question is, do you have it? Can you let these innocent people die?”
The dreamer leaned forward and squinted his eyes triumphantly: “You never thought you were an indifferent person, didn’t you?”
Ye Jia’s face did not change, and she looked back at him coldly.
“No, no…” The dreamer leaned back on the back of the chair, reached out his hand to take the pen on the table, and turned it casually: “I had a deal with you, and I was even one step away from touching yours. Soul, my brothers and sisters have prepared a lot for your arrival, but only I know that these are not needed.”
“Businessmen must understand the weaknesses of human beings if they want to make money. Only in this way can we be safe in the market.” His eyes flashed with sinister light, and the smile on his face remained the same: “As long as there are weaknesses, even if there are weaknesses Strong, I am as weak as an ant.”
The dreamer said contemptuously, “Even you, ace.”
Ji Xuan’s eyebrows darkened slightly, as if he wanted to step forward.
But Ye Jia raised his hand and grabbed his wrist.
Ji Xuan lowered his eyes, glanced over Ye Jia’s body, and stopped obediently.
The dreamer played with the pen tip in his hand and said, “Since there is nothing else to do with me… please leave?”
He has a gentle face and a smile: “I believe you don’t need me to call a security guard?”
Ye Jia’s mind moved slightly.
Now that the opponent has had a showdown with him, those thousands of hostages are indeed not something he can completely ignore. In addition, Ji Xuan is not in a heyday. Under such circumstances, it is harmful and unprofitable to start a war. It is better to leave temporarily, etc. After thinking of the way to deal with it, make plans.
He smiled calmly at the dreamer: “Naturally don’t need…”
Ye Jia’s fingers held the man’s slender and cold wrists and pulled him around and walked out.
However, before taking a few steps, the lazy voice of the dream maker came from behind: “Unexpectedly, I didn’t expect that the dignified ghost king became a dog called by ordinary humans. It’s really shameful, isn’t it? ?”
As soon as Ye Jia’s steps were closed, his eyebrows cooled down a bit with the words of the other party.
He turned his head and looked behind.
The smile on the dreamer’s face was a bit malicious: “I don’t know if my mother will feel sad when she sees her direct descendants begging for mercy to humans.”
Ye Jia’s voice was still calm and calm, with a slight indifference: “I also want to know that she saw her offspring being cut off by ordinary humans, and even now she has not healed, so that she only dared to play tricks. Don’t dare to face that weak human being-how is she feeling?”
The face of the dream maker changed insignificantly.
Ye Jia’s lips were slightly raised, but there was no smile in the depths of those light-colored eyes, and that kind of extremely oppressive aura spread out without hesitation: “I believe she will not feel sad. …After all, how can ordinary ghosts and direct descendants compare?”
The jealous mockery of the dream maker was returned as it was.
His face was uncontrollable and gloomy, his twisted face was covered with insidious expressions, he stood up, his scarlet tongue writhed in his mouth, and his long nails dig deep into the hard wooden tabletop. , Made a squeaky, squeaky, squeaky sound, as if he would rush over and twist his throat in the next second.
Ye Jia stared at him calmly.
And in his hand, a huge phantom of the sickle suddenly appeared, the cold light gleaming in the sun, and the sharp blade made the entire office seem cramped.
The dream maker’s movements are paused.
His gaze fell on the sickle in Ye Jia’s hand, his expression was slightly stiff, as if he thought of some unpleasant memories.
“Unfortunately, my blade has forgotten what you taste like…”
Ye Jia squinted his eyes and brushed the blade with his pale fingertips. He said unhurriedly, “But don’t worry, it will remember it sooner or later.”
The dreamer stared at the young man in front of him with eyes that seemed to be able to chew him up, but the other party smiled casually at him, and then dragged the tall man on the side and walked out.
The door closed heavily behind him, reverberating dullly in the long corridor.
Ye Jia had a calm face, pulled Ji Xuan’s arm, and pulled him to walk forward quickly.
Ji Xuan didn’t say anything, just lowered his eyes, his gaze fell on the fingers that the other party was holding on his wrist, and the expression on his face was a little happy.
Halfway through, Ye Jia stopped abruptly and turned to look at the man behind.
Ji Xuan hurriedly stopped and looked at him innocently.
Ye Jia took a deep breath: “Next time, don’t follow.”
He sounded gritted his teeth.
Ji Xuan also knew that there was a mistake, and nodded obediently.
Ye Jia released his hand: “Go back…”
Ji Xuan took a pity at the position on his wrist where the other party had just held it. The temperature of the young man’s fingertips seemed to still remain on it, but he didn’t really want to anger Ye Jia, who was on the verge of an explosion, so he was very aware of current affairs. Nodded and said: “Okay…”
His voice fell.
But… Ye Jia still saw the other person standing in front of him, looking back at him innocently.
Ye Jia: “What’s wrong?”
Ji Xuan paused and said in a very small voice: “I can’t get out…”
Ye Jia: “…”
He asked: “Why?”
Ji Xuan: “You can’t pull the ghosts away here.”
He paused and explained: “I can follow up because I left a mark on you.”
So that’s why the dream makers are so surprised when they see Ji Xuan.
Ye Jia took a long and deep breath, raised his hand tiredly, and squeezed his eyebrows.
In that case, Ji Xuan wanted to leave, so he could only go out with him.
Ye Jia thought of the three people who were still waiting for him, and couldn’t help but start to have a headache.
Ji Xuan said, “If you need it, I can become a kid?”
Before Ye Jia could answer, I saw the tall man in front of him shrinking rapidly, and in the blink of an eye, he became a little boy reaching the height of Ye Jia’s waist.
Ji Xuan raised a delicate face, and his scarlet eyes had turned to pitch black sometime. He grabbed Ye Jia’s palm on his side and yelled softly in a childish voice: “Brother… ”
Ye Jia: “…”
Although the facial features of Ji Xuan’s childhood and adult state are similar, because of the completely different aura and the change of pupil color, even Ye Jia, who has been with him day and night, can hardly recognize him immediately. , Not to mention other players who have just met several sides.
It is also difficult for ordinary people to imagine that the ghost king Ji Xuan would appear in the ghost company run by the dream maker in his childhood.
The welcome lady was standing outside the elevator with a sweet smile on her face, obviously waiting there from the beginning.
She turned her head and looked at Ye Jia: “You are now preparing…”
Miss Yingbin said, she was taken aback when she saw Ji Xuan. Obviously, she didn’t expect that a strange child would appear on the top floor, which was strictly controlled up and down.
Ye Jia: “He is with me.”
Miss Yingbin seemed to be at a loss: “But…”
Ye Jia twitched his lips: “Don’t worry, your boss knows.”
“Okay…” After receiving an explanation, the smile on Miss Yingbin’s face rose again: “Excuse me, sir, please come in.”
The elevator descended slowly.
When it fell to the ground floor, the elevator made a ding sound, and the metal door of the elevator slowly opened in front of the three of them.
The door just opened, Wei Yuechu, Chen Qingye, Blast seemed to have been waiting there.
They hurriedly gathered around: “How is it?”
Almost at the same time, everyone’s eyes fell on the strange little boy next to Ye Jia. All three of them were taken aback. It seemed that they did not expect that one more person would suddenly appear in the elevator: “This is…?”
Miss Yingbin said with a smile: “This kid is with this gentleman.”
Ye Jia: “…”
He should have put a barrier on Ji Xuan from the beginning to hide the opponent.
It’s all because the dream maker divided his gods, otherwise he wouldn’t be led astray by Ji Xuan’s idea of getting smaller in the corridor.
Moreover, he acted with the other three as ace this time, so…it would be very dangerous!
Ye Jia grinned reluctantly at the three-faced player in front of him: “It’s a long story…”
Soon, the four of them left the building.
After confirming that they should have left the surveillance area of the dream maker, everyone turned their heads to look at Ye Jia, as if waiting for his explanation.
Ye Jia: “…”
He took a deep breath, rubbed his eyebrows, and said, “This…”
Ji Xuan also raised his head, with a pair of dark and deep big eyes fixedly looking at each other, seeming to be waiting too.
“It’s my former companion.” Ye Jia paused, and reluctantly introduced.
Wei Yuechu blinked, as if suddenly remembering something: “Oh! I’ve heard that you have no teammates in the game, but you have been with a child all the time. Is that him?”
Ye Jia: “Yes…”
Chen Qingye and Blast both showed a daze.
Although ace is acting alone in the dungeon, most of the players he has encountered outside the dungeon know that he has always protected a little boy. No one knows why such a strong player would be kind, so In the cruel game, there is also an oil bottle for himself-after all, this little boy does not seem to be given a title by the game, people do not know his name, and the list at the front of the scoreboard does not match this feature. The player of, then, he can live so long only because of the protection of the boss.
This matter has always made many people envy and hate.
What a great experience to be led by the No. 1 God on the list to win.
Chen Qingye, Wei Yuechu, and Blast also knew about the existence of this child, but after Ye Jia left the game, the child seemed to have disappeared and never appeared again.
Therefore, almost all players thought that after the ace clearance, the kid had no asylum, so he died in this cruel game.
Some people sighed, some sighed, some gloated.
After the game collapsed, although the three Chen Qingye encountered ace in real life, they all wisely did not mention the existence of this child.
—After all, they must have a deep relationship after getting along for so long. Knowing that their friend died in the game after he left, it must be very sad for ace.
But what I didn’t expect was… they could actually see this legendary character today.
Blast’s eyes widened in surprise: “So you actually survived…”
Chen Qingye kicked him expressionlessly.
Blast yelled, and then closed his mouth abruptly.
However, he was in charge of blast, and he couldn’t control the same outspoken Wei Yuechu.
Wei Yuechu asked: “If he didn’t die, why didn’t he show up next to ace?”
Ye Jia: “…”
This question is really difficult to answer.
He can’t say that this is actually not a player, but Ji Xuan who is the king of ghosts.
I saw Ji Xuan raise his eyes and said in a childlike voice: “Because I made my brother angry.”
Wei Yuechu’s heart melted: “This way, I believe your brother has forgiven you, right?”
Ye Jia: “…”
This question is also difficult to answer.
Ji Xuan said, “No…”
He squinted his eyes and laughed: “But I will work hard.”
Wei Yuechu: “!”
sky! so cute!
Ye Jia cut off the increasingly dangerous topic in front of him, and said, “Okay, let’s talk about what you found now.”
First of all, he simply retelled the conversation he had with the dream maker at the top level-of course, the version that removed Ji Xuan’s existence.
After listening to Ye Jia’s narration, everyone fell silent.
This amount of information… is really a bit big.
Chen Qingye: “So, you once fought against the dream maker and cut off his head?”
Ye Jia: “It looks like this now.”
Wei Yuechu showed a suddenly enlightened expression: “So, this is why he suddenly disappeared… It turned out that he was seriously injured and went to recuperate.”
Blast couldn’t hold back it, and asked, “That…do you really remember it?”
Ye Jia spread his hands: “Yes…”
Chen Qingye held his chin thoughtfully, and said, “Since you said you two had a deal, then your memory loss may be related.”
Wei Yuechu sighed: “Unfortunately, if you remember the specific content, then we know exactly what we are dealing with. If we know his weakness, then we might be able to hurt those thousands. In the case of hostage life, kill the dream maker. And now…”
She didn’t finish her words, but other people knew her voice-over very well.
Now, the lives of thousands of people are tied to the dreamer, and once he dies, more innocent people will also die—
The dream maker is right at least one thing.
He can have no bottom line and humanity.
However, they can’t just sit back and watch this kind of thing.
Blast kicked the pebble angrily: “Then we have nothing to do now?”
Ye Jia narrowed his eyes slightly.
He gently rubbed the shallow scar on his wrist with his fingertips.
After leaving the top floor, the embossment and redness of the scar disappeared, and it returned to the color close to the skin, and the pale wrist was smooth.
Ye Jia said slowly: “Not necessarily…”
In that instant, everyone looked at Ye Jia.
“Did you… remember anything?” Blast asked in a daze.
Ye Jia shook his head.
He put down his wrist and continued: “I once signed a contract with the dream maker, and all the other players who traded with him died, but I survived and also severely damaged the dream maker.”
Ye Jia smiled briefly: “This shows that there must be a loophole in his contract.”
Chen Qingye’s eyes lit up: “Yes…”
Ye Jia narrowed his eyes slightly, and said slowly: “I can find the first time, and I can find the second time.”
There are not many ups and downs in his voice when he speaks. Although his face cannot be seen clearly, it is uncontrollable and convincing from the bottom of his heart.
Ji Xuan raised his head and fixedly looked at the youth’s face hidden in the shadows, his eyes flickering.
The other three people also cheered up.
Wei Yuechu asked: “Then what shall we do next? What are we going to do?”
“Still according to the original plan.” Ye Jia said: “First go and inform the Administration to see if this place can be monitored first, and then according to the previous method, look for transactions with dream makers in those death cases. Victims of death, see if they can find a breakthrough from their bodies.”
“Okay…” The three nodded one after another.
At this moment, the door of the building behind them was pushed open, and a man floating under his feet slowly walked out.
He looked sluggish, a face that had suffered from vicissitudes of life was engraved with deep exhaustion, and there was a thick blue-black under him, and it seemed that he hadn’t slept for a long time.
However, there was a hint of joy in his brows and eyes.
Ye Jia’s heart moved slightly.
He remembers this man.
When the elevator stopped for the first time, it was this person who was sitting outside the door.
Ye Jia’s heart changed with his thoughts, he walked forward quickly, raised his voice and shouted: “Sir!”
The man was in a daze, as if only then realized that the other party was calling himself: “What’s the matter?”
Ye Jia went straight to the subject: “Have you reached a deal with the devil?”
The man looked at him suspiciously, his eyes wandering, and he said dodgingly: “You, what are you talking about, I don’t know.”
Ye Jia said: “I actually came here to make a deal with them, but when I saw the bet, I regretted it and bet my soul… it’s really not worth it, what do you think?”
The man’s face showed a furious look: “You, what do you know?!”
He clenched his fists and roared: “My daughter is lying on the hospital bed, life or death uncertain! What would you do if you were replaced by you?”
“No matter what the price, I can’t let her die!” The man stared at Ye Jia fiercely, choked in his angry voice: “As for you people who stand and talk and don’t have a backache, let me go to hell! What I’m willing to sell is my business, you don’t need to worry about it!”
Ye Jia was taken aback for a moment.
The man’s face was sullen, and he had obviously made up his mind. He turned and got into the car parked aside. Then, the engine rang and the car left.
Ye Jia fixedly looked at the shrinking vehicle in the distance, with a thoughtful expression on his face.
Things proceeded step by step according to what Ye Jia said.
With the addition of administrative staff, the efficiency of screening became much faster—soon, the cases they had piled up on their hands went from fifteen to seventy, and then to two hundred.
After Ye Jia returned to the hotel, he began to read the documents non-stop, looking for any useful clues.
Time passed quickly, and night gradually fell.
In the boundless ocean of information, finding a breakthrough becomes extremely difficult.
Ye Jia felt a heavy weight on the side of the bed. He raised his head and saw Ji Xuan sitting at the end of the bed. A pair of radiant scarlet pupils were looking at him unblinkingly: “Brother, do you need help?”
He pursed his lips and smiled, and said softly: “Just a goodnight kiss is fine.”
