his eyelids and glanced sideways.
His delicate facial features were shrouded in a layer of hostile intent, mercilessly piercing the people who entered.

Zhao Yuan was stunned by Gu An’s face.
He had seen many beauties, yet he was still momentarily stunned.
He had even forgotten his own thoughts just now, so he was wary of the person inside.

Because Gu An was a flower demon, there was naturally a hint of seductive color between his eyes and eyebrows, but his expression was icy, and his full red lips were lightly pinched.

His pupils were clear and dark as night with slightly restrained double eyelids.
His eyelashes were long and curled, his nose was straight, and his chin was white.
The profile of his face was very clear.

Because his complexion was too fair, the fiery red rose mark between his eyebrows was like a sumptuous flame, attracting the attention of others.

He wore a finely made crimson shirt in a traditional style.
Zhao Yuan’s eyes were penetrating as he stared at his exposed snow-white neck.

Wen Feifei couldn’t help but feel jealous when she saw Zhao Yuan’s undisguised gaze.
She pinched him harshly, and her voice was unrestrained: “Zhao-ge, let’s go.
It’s so quiet here, there must be something wrong.”

Her intentions were transparent.
She wanted Zhao Yuan to lead the man in red before them to the evil spirits.

Zhao Yuan’s obsession was interrupted by Wen Feifei’s voice, and he looked guardedly toward Gu An: “Who are you? What are you trying to do to me?”

The reason for his enchantment just now was entirely attributed to Gu An.

Being enchanted by a man in front of his lover, Zhao Yuan felt embarrassed at the thought of it.
He wanted to find a hole to bury himself in.

Wen Feifei’s voice was feminine, but the words she spoke were ugly: “Aiya.
I don’t know if it’s a human or a ghost, but it has no sense of shame.
Is it possible that you have to turn into a dog when you see someone? Do you think that’s it, Zhao-ge?”

However, she didn’t wait for Zhao Yuan’s response, and when she turned her head to look, a black knife suddenly appeared on Zhao Yuan’s neck.

And the holder of the black knife was the man in red.

Gu An listened to the conversation between the pair and felt extremely impatient.
Because of his appearance, he had suffered in through a lot of criticism in the real world.
That’s why he hated people talking about his face the most.
He didn’t expect to be discussed when he entered the game world.

The two were not only discussing him, but discussing him right in front of him.
Not only that, but what the woman said made him very displeased.

Gu An was not an immortal master who could restrain his anger.
Usually, he would enact his revenge immediately.
If his strength was not enough, he would note it down in a journal and leave it to be dealt with later.

So by the time Zhao Yuan said those words, he was already holding the black knife.
He jumped toward the door, casually aiming the black knife, and paused an inch away from his flesh.

Zhao Yuan’s body was shaken by Gu An’s actions.
If Gu An’s hand shook even a little, the black knife on his neck would slice into him.
He was panicked, and sweat was forming on his forehead.

With a trembling voice, he pleaded: “Great hero, please spare my life.
It is me who fails to see, but you who sees all.
Please spare me.”

Wen Feifei gasped when she saw the black knife, but when she opened her mouth to say something, Gu An stopped her with a look.
She closed her mouth in shame, and quietly stepped away from Zhao Yuan to avoid any blood spray from touching her.

Gu An’s voice was cold as he questioned Zhao Yuan: “Why do you want to enter the house?”

When the two were conversing, Gu An learned that the two were not players, but NPCs of the game world.

Zhao Yuan immediately explained why they came to the house, but omitted the information his father had given him.
The treasure belonged to their Zhao family, and no one else could steal it from them.

“We’re supernatural fans.
We often go to haunted areas to explore together,” he said.
“This house has been haunted since my childhood.
I’ve always wanted to come here, but I never had the opportunity.
I couldn’t rush to go alone, so we took advantage of the holiday and scheduled a date to come and explore together.”

Gu An asked again: “What about the others?”

Zhao Yuan hesitated, but Gu An wasn’t saying empty threats.
He directly started moving the black knife closer to his throat.
Seeing that he was only a finger’s width away from his flesh, Zhao Yuan clenched his eyes and shouted: “No no no! I’ll tell! I’ll tell!”

“I don’t have the patience to chit chat with you.” Gu An spoke coldly.
“You’d better tell me all at once, otherwise……”

Zhao Yuan understood what Gu An was insinuating, and nodded quickly: “Of course, of course!”

He swallowed and told him: “There were originally five of us, but in the woods outside the house, Li Qun didn’t keep up because he had to pee urgently, and just now……”

As if recalling something horrifying, Zhao Yuan shuddered, and his voice was full of fear: “My distant cousin Yu Miao, just now seemed to be a different person.
She went crazy and leapt on our bodies and bit Wang Li.
The three of us ran away, and Feifei and I arrived here on accident……”

While Zhao Yuan spoke, something seemed to flash past the window.

Gu An keenly noticed something, but when he looked toward it, there was nothing.

He didn’t let his guard down.
He lowered his gaze, and kept staring at the window through the corner of his eyes.

After Zhao Yuan finished speaking, Gu An removed the black knife from his neck, and without saying anything more, went straight to the wooden chair and sat down.

Zhao Yuan and Wen Feifei shrank to the side.
They couldn’t figure out Gu An’s temperament, but after what had just occurred, they didn’t dare to act rashly.

Unless they annoyed him and brought suffering upon themselves.

Gu An looked out the window while absentmindedly chatting with 521.

521 told him earlier that he could speak to it without opening his mouth.
He just needed to speak internally.

521 had been constantly making noise since earlier, making Gu An want to ignore it.

“What’s wrong with you?” Gu An asked 521.

521 was a little scared.
It had already shrunk its voice, but Gu An could still hear it as it said: “An An, I am useless.”

“I’m even afraid of ghosts.
I’m not a good system, wu wu wu wu……”

Gu An replied: “You’re not completely useless.
At least you gave me a knife that can save my life.”

He looked at the exchange shop with his bracelet.
He only had enough survival points to purchase a kitchen knife used for cutting vegetable.
Anything in the shop that could be used to deal with ghosts was priced sky high.

So he didn’t think that 521 was useless.

Hearing Gu An praise it, 521 selectively ignored the previous words and spun around cheerfully.

Gu An didn’t say anything more.
He continued propping up his chin and looked out the window.

Outside the window, the moon that hung high in the sky had changed color at some point.
It was no longer white, but an ominous scarlet.

The bedroom, which wasn’t far from the well in the yard, could be reached with a two minute walk.

The red hued moonlight fell onto the well.
The illumination revealed the brown well water inside.

“Tatata–“

He heard the sound of staggering footsteps.
Under the moonlight’s illumination, a pair of white skeletons walked around the entire house.
Because they had no flesh or blood as support, they relied only on the yin qi to pull their bones, and it was easy to destabilize.

Walking, walking, the yin qi in the skeletons gradually changed their appearances, turning them into ‘people’ glowing with black qi.

They had no consciousness and could only walk without interruption.
Their footsteps were slow and loud, like a staggering and weak old man.

Gu An also heard the sound.
He narrowed his eyes and wanted to go outside to take a look.

He strolled straight past Zhao Yuan and Wen Feifei on his way out.
The pair looked at each other; they also heard the noise.

Between following Gu An or hiding in the house, the two chose to do the latter.
They pulled the quilt off the bed, rolled up inside of it, and hid under the bed.

~ The House Path ~

Gu An jumped over the wall and stopped beside the branch of a tall tree near the main house.
He looked at the groups of white skeletons dragging themselves toward the main house.

Seeing that scene, 521 shivered with fear.
It shut its eyes and didn’t dare to open them again.

Gu An watched the white skeletons come closer.
As they approached, he could make out the voices of some ghosts.

“They actually returned! Brothers, let’s go and feast!”

“Come on, ah! I’m starving to death! Just in time for a wave of yin qi!”

“Hahahaha! Such strong yin qi! Laozi wants to eat all of you!”

Gu An focused on the white skeletons and ghosts with all his attention, so he ignored the abnormalities.

The surging ghosts were like starving wolves.
They pounced fiercely on the white skeletons, sucking the yin qi from them with all of their strength.

The white skeletons resisted harshly, but the evil ghosts were extremely vicious.
The white skeletons weren’t worthy opponents of the ghosts at all.
They could only passively be drained of the yin qi in their bones.

The yin qi was sucked out of their bones, and the bones were scattered on the ground in front of the main house as if there was nothing sticking them together.

Under the light from the scarlet moon, it appeared too strange.

Gu An watched that scene from the branch, recalling the information provided by the bracelet.

The bones that appeared inside the house……

He looked at the silent fight beneath him.
Could it be those bones on the ground?

But why did those white bones go to the main house, and why do the ghosts absorb the yin qi from the white skeletons? And where did the bones come from? Why were they in the house……

Anything and everything was a mystery, and he couldn’t figure it out.

After the ghosts drained the yin qi from the white skeletons, they floated away.

Gu An followed behind them, maintaining a short distance.
The ghosts seemed to know where they were going, and strands of black yin qi drifted in one direction.

Gu An, who followed behind them, stood on the wall and watched the ghosts drift somewhere.

— The dilapidated courtyard.

By the time he reached the courtyard, the ghosts had long since disappeared.
Only the weeds the height of his knees remained, dancing in the wind, lengthening under the moonlight.
From a distance, they looked like frivolously dancing ghosts.

Gu An walked through the courtyard.
When he first awakened, he didn’t pay any attention to the courtyard.
As he looked at it now, he found a wooden door in the corner, broken down by wind and rain.

He walked over and looked through the wooden door to see what’s behind it.

–It was a rose.
The petals were as bright as blood, and it was larger than ordinary roses.
If he looked closely, there were threads of black yin qi on each rose petal.

~ At This Time On the Other Side ~

The originally quiet well suddenly let out an abnormal noise.
The harsh sound of nails scraping against the wall emerged, as if something inside the well was struggling to escape, but kept falling into the water again and again, causing bursts of splashing sounds.

After a while, the entity seemed to settle, no longer trying to climb out.

Yet there was a cloud yin qi coming from the well, and it floated in the air for a while.

It drifted toward the unconscious Yu Miao.

After being possessed, Yu Miao opened her scarlet eyes, stood up, opened the door, and walked out to face the red moonlight outside.

TL Notes: Here’s chapter 2! Chapters 3 and 4 are completely translated already.
I may post them early because I get excited and impatient, but I’ll be trying to build a stockpile (∩^o^)⊃━☆
