Chapter 12

Shen Yao died.

On the way to her home, she was found dead with her hands cut off and stuffed into her mouth in a gruesome manner.

Shen Fengyue had just returned after eating lunch when he received a text message from the police, he set down his phone and remained silent.

He still remembers how nervous and eager the girl looked like when she confessed to him, her inadvertent action of pinning her hair behind her ear. Such a flowery little girl was still alive yesterday, has become a cold corpse today.

He thought he should find something to do to divert his attention, so he started sorting out his books and then found a card inside his bag.

Shen Fengyue, “…” As if he didn’t see it, he closed his eyes and threw the card into a drawer.

Then continued his action of sorting out his books.

System, “I saw it all.”

Shen Fengyue continued to organize.

The system hesitated, “Could it be… you’re afraid?”

After organizing his books, he folded the book in his hand again and tapped it against the table.

The system knew it was right about this.

“There’s no use avoiding the matter. You should take it out and read it, maybe you’ll get some information.” It suggested.

Shen Fengyue understood this, but it was one thing to understand, while it was another to have enough courage to do it. He put the book down, and after taking a breath, his hand fumbled around in the drawer and he took out a rectangular object.

In turn, he and System both opened their eyes wide at the same time after reading the contents of the letter.

It read.

— [Meet me in the back playground after school today.]

The system blurted out, “Your mom, this is some hardcore shit!”

Shen Fengyue’s complexion was also not good, this is blatant provocation ah, and to go to the back playground at night to wait for him, only a fool will believe that it’s safe! He’s not an idiot!

After thinking it over again, he suggested, “System, I don’t think it’ll work. We might as well run away now.”

“Why?” The system disagreed and with leaping excitement in its tone, it strived to comfort, “What are you afraid of? When the time comes, you go and wait, I’ll give you a plug-in, and after that, we’ll easily counter-kill him, Won’t our mission be completed by then?”

“I’m the one going, not you! It’s easy to talk! Bah!”

The system grumbled, thinking that this man is no good. He’s wimpier than it thought. It’ll be hard to find a wife for him in the future.

The heart was not as good as his actions. Shen Fengyue’s hands-on ability has always been very fast. As long as he has made up his mind, he’ll certainly act quickly. He immediately pretended to be ill to ask for a leave from the head teacher, put on his school bag, and ran away. 

All the way from the classroom to the school gate, he was so proud of himself until he ran into an invisible wall.

Huh?

He tried to move forward again but was unable to go any further, as if blocked by a transparent and invisible wall.

Fuck, no good!

Shen Fengyue went back to look and found that the school that was still lively a moment ago was suddenly empty.

There were no students coming and going in the halls, and the security guards in the gatehouse were also absent, leaving only the loud class bell ringing in the empty school.

“Ding ding ding, class is in session, please return to your classrooms…” After a long string of bells, a mechanical female voice could be heard on the radio.

The female voice repeated three times before stopping, then steeply changed.

“Ding ding ding, class is in session, classmate Jian please return to school.”

Shen Fengyue thought that he was hallucinating.

“Announcement, class is in session, classmate Jian please return to school.”

This… this is…

“Ding ding ding, class is in session, classmate Jian please return to school.”

“Hee hee hee hee hee.”

“You’re not going to get away from this.” The female voice changed and turned into a strange male sound, laughing with a weird voice.

Shen Fengyue turned back again and found that the front had turned into a black mist and it was moving rapidly in his direction like it was trying to force him back into the school.

The black mist was moving extremely fast, and after he quickly retreated back to the school, he found that the black mist had indeed stopped at the entrance of the school, and it had condensed there without moving at all.

This was a wolf in the front and a tiger in the back!1The bad guys came one after another

Shen Fengyue, “Your mom, that pervert really is the bug, isn’t he!”

The system was also shocked, “Fuck.”

Shen Fengyue said, “That bug told me to go to the playground, I guess he’s waiting for me at the playground. System, can you do it?”

“…”

Shen Fengyue, “Speak!”

“Emmmmmmmm,” the system said, “That, I think the feasibility of this is unknown.”

Shen Fengyue understood, “If you can’t why couldn’t you say it earlier? Weren’t you quite capable earlier? Why can’t you do it anymore?”

System, “Alright, let’s run! Is this the time for internal strife?!”

Shen Fengyue ran back to the school building, planning to clean the system up later.

As soon as he stepped into the building, all the lights started flashing incessantly, and after a few flashes, they went out with a poof. Suddenly the surroundings plunged into darkness, and it was abnormally dark. Usually at night, even after a power outage, one could see clearly through the faint moonlight but here it was different, it was so dark that a person can’t even see his fingers in front of his face, not to mention knowing where he is.

Shen Fengyue was glad that he didn’t have a phobia of the dark, otherwise, he would’ve gone crazy.

“Jian.”

“Jian.”

“Jian Yan.”

There was a voice coming from over the stairs, the person called his name with his weird voice, the sound of his feet on the stairs was amplified a thousand times in the darkness of this empty school as if it was echoing in his ears.

“Ta.”

“Ta.”

“Ta.”

He was going downstairs.

Shen Fengyue didn’t care anymore and rushed forward, He was now in a state of complete blindness. He tripped over something in the process and fell to his knees on the ground with a thud.

The sound of him falling down was also amplified and heard by that person.

“Oh~” The man spoke in a relaxed tone, “So that’s where you are.”

Because his knee hit the ground directly, it was painful, but he didn’t dare to cry out in pain, the sound of the fall just now had already given that bug a report of his location. He was afraid that if the person heard his cry, he would come to find his location. Shen Fengyue couldn’t care less about the pain, he quickly climbed up as he stumbled and continued to run. He also paid attention to lighten his footsteps to soften the sound, so he was running on his tiptoe the whole time.

“What are you doing system? Where should I go?” Shen Fengyue asked the system.

The system gave him a command, “There’s a bathroom a hundred meters ahead. You can go there and hide.”

Shen Fengyue estimated the distance in his mind, and when he reached that place he started to hesitate, “Is the men’s toilet on the left or the right side?”

“Male left, female right.”

The system guessed his hesitation and gave him an idea after some thought, “You hide in the ladies’ room. Don’t worry, I don’t think he would ever guess that you would hide in the bathroom. And even if he did guess, he would never know that you would actually go to the ladies’ room!”

When people are nervous to the extreme, their IQ would often drop or even become zero. Shen Fengyue’s brain wasn’t working, so he believed in the system’s bullshit to enter the women’s bathroom, and then he fumbled into the last one.

After unlocking, he held onto the toilet partition, his breath disordered.

Every boy has a dream during their youth, and that is to one day enter the women’s bathroom to see what it’s like. Shen Fengyue had lived for more than twenty years and had never been in a ladies’ room, but now that he was in the place he had dreamed of, he couldn’t muster any interest.

Compared to the obscene interest of looking at the women’s restroom, saving his little life at the moment was the most important.

“Ta.”

“Ta.”

“Ta.”

The man’s footsteps sounded, when he reached the floor, he stepped on the ground, seeming to hesitate.

“Hey, where are you?”

“Are you in the classrooms?”

Then there was the sound of the classroom door being opened, which seems to be broken, creating an unpleasant creaking sound as it opens.

All of these sounds were as if they were right next to his ears, all of them tormenting Shen Fengyue.

After the man swept around and found no one there, he slammed the door shut and went to the next classroom.

There were more than a dozen classes in a grade, and he had to check out every single one of them, which meant that that sound of the door opening and closing would continue to occur a dozen times.

It was a long, torturous ordeal, during which Shen Fengyue was frightened auditorily, his heart was frightened as well. When the man finally checked all of the classrooms, the atmosphere suddenly fell into silence, and Shen Fengyue sweated profusely.

“Ooh, oh.” The man sighed, “Why is there nothing?”

He moved down the hallway, calling as he did so, “Jian, come out.”

“Jian.”

“Jian.”

“Where are you?”

“I’ll find you.”

“Jian Yan.”

The tone of each “Jian” was extremely gentle, but that gentleness was creepy in itself.

Jian Yan, Jian Yan, Jian Yan, Jian Yan, Jian Yan!!! With his ears full of “Jian Yan”, Shen Fengyue squatted in the toilet cubicle as his legs became weak.

He asked, “Do you think we can kill him back now?”

The system was also frightened and cried, “It’s useless for you to ask me, I’m just an assistant plus nurse!”

Shen Fengyue choked at the system’s words, and only after a long time did he say, “Who gave you the courage to say you wanted to counter-kill in the first place, Liang Jingru?!2famous Chinese singer

The system oohed and ahhed, It couldn’t help it, who knew this bug battle would be so scary.

The man shouted and suddenly snapped his fingers, his tone lightened up, “Could it be… are you hiding in the toilet?”

Shen Fengyue froze at the sound of it, even the system that was crying in his head was stunned.

“Hehehe.”

The man laughed happily, his footsteps suddenly quickened as he reached the door of the toilet in no time.

He went into the men’s room first and opened each stall door to find no one there, then he went to the women’s room.

The light in the women’s washroom was switched on with a snap. The sudden light dispersed the endless darkness, but Shen Fengyue only felt frightened, His heart was beating wildly from the beginning, and now it was beating even more violently as his breathing became rapid, he felt it hard to breathe.

He inhaled more and exhaled less.

“Jian Yan.”

“Ah, Jian.” The man called gently as he opened the cubicle doors one by one.

“Creak.”

“Creak.”

“Creak.”

“Little rabbit, be good, open the door and come out.” The man suddenly hummed a song.

The footsteps sounded slow, along with the sound of opening and closing of the doors.

Hearing the song, the footsteps, and the sound of the door opening and closing, Shen Fengyue and System’s tears were about to fall.

Fuck your little rabbit! Is that how you use this song?!

….

“Creak,”

There was only one cubicle left, and the atmosphere was suddenly quiet.

…He had been found.

Footsteps stopped at the door of the last cubicle as a soft laugh sounded, “I found you.”

Shen Fengyue did not make a sound, holding his breath in fright. The atmosphere was quiet and terrifying, leaving only the sound of his thumping heartbeat. When he couldn’t hold his breath anymore, he quietly changed his breath and had the audacity to look through the doorway.

All he saw was blackness.

He saw another glimmer of light coming through the bottom seam of the door panel.

There was only one possibility in this situation.

–That same person is looking at you from the slit.

Shen Fengyue sobbed at this speculation.

The man moved away from the crack in the door and suddenly sang, “Little rabbit, open the door. I want to come in.”

Shen Fengyue’s brain snapped and he tearfully replied, “No, no, no, no! You can’t come in! As long as you try to come in, I won’t open it even if I die!”

There was a moment of silence behind the door, the man didn’t seem to expect Shen Fengyue to reply to him. He was stunned for a moment before continuing to sing, “The little rabbit was not good enough to open the door and wouldn’t let me in.”

After singing the song, the man began to tug at the door from the outside, vainly trying to yank it and open it with brute force. The door was constantly yanked with brute force from the outside, and Shen Fengyue rushed to pull it, trying to resist him.

But he still underestimated the bug, that person’s strength was obviously much stronger than his, his effort to pull the door back was nothing.

The door was eventually ripped open, and Shen Fengyue was pulled into the arms of a man with a scream and held tightly. The person hugged him contentedly and finished whispering the last line in his ear, “The little rabbit is so good. The door has been opened, now he’s into my arms.”

Shen Fengyue never knew that a nursery rhyme could be as terrifying as it was, and he struggled in that person’s arms, facing the person wearing the mask of a strange smile painted on it.

His heart faltered in fear and then his eyes went dark as he fainted in fright.

“I’ve got you.”

“Hehehehehehehehe.”

Shen Fengyue still had a system left after he fainted from fright. It looked at Shen Fengyue and said in shock, “Shen Fengyue! Shen Fengyue! Don’t leave me, a bunch of data, to face all this cruelty!”

Shen Fengyue fainted and slid straight down as if he had no bones, and the man picked him up and walked across the room, his head buried in the nape of his neck, laughing incessantly.

This scene was too terrifying.

“Aaahh, Mom, this is too scary, I’m strategically going offline as well.”

  1. Well this escalated quickly lmao. But I think the best way to survive in this cat and mouse game is you have to keep moving, for example like when the villain was checking the male toilet or the classroom, just take out your shoes and run quietly with your socks to another floor lol

    Anyway thank you for the translation!
