Ghost King’s Sacrificial Little Bride (22)
There was a light at the bottom of his eyes, but he soon redirected them.
As soon as he turned to leave, a soft hand held him.
Ji Yongchuan’s footsteps paused, however he didn’t shake her off. After all, it was still necessary to pretend to be a gentle goodly Gege to deceive others.
People were coming and going along the street, and someone was burning paper money beside the road.
For Bai Weiwei, dating was watching movies then having coffee or getting something for dinner.
Anyway, this generalized set of processes was never wrong.
“Let’s go to the movies.” Bai Weiwei suggested.
Ji Yongchuan smiled and said, “Good. Look, there’s a movie theater, let’s buy tickets.”
Bai Weiwei looked up, she had a persistent feeling that this cinema next to the crosswalk, was somewhat dark and gray.
Even if it’s lobby was all lit up, its surface seemed ashen and dirty.
Ji Yongchuan pulled her to buy tickets, saw there were many people in line ahead of him, and he said: “You wait, I’ll go buy the tickets.”
Bai Weiwei’s smile began to stiffen, yet in order to maintain her silly white sweet character set, she pretended to not notice anything and watched him leave.
As soon as he left, Bai Weiwei asked the system with a pale complexion.
“Tongzi, why do I think these people are all wearing funeral makeup?”
System: “This cinema was bombed into debris in the war, those in the queue here are all those who died in the cinema at that time.”
Bai Weiwei thought she should stay calm.
“Where’s Ji Yongchuan?”
The system searched the area, “Oh, he seems to be encouraging those ghosts to eat you, then he’ll arrive as the hero that saves the beauty, and your favorability would steadily climb up.”
Bai Weiwei: “Ai, falling in love with a slag man, this really is mulberry hearted1.”
Suddenly a hoarse voice came from behind her, “Girl, you stepped on my stuff.”
Bai Weiwei looked back with a rigid neck, and saw a hideous, horrifying ghost with a pair of bloody black eye sockets standing behind her.
……Brain crashed, goosebumps rose.
Bai Weiwei found that she could still hold on to her calm character set, and tranquilly asked: “What have I stepped on of yours?”
Bai Weiwei had no expression, moved her feet with difficulty.
She saw a slick round eyeball appear at the soles of her feet.
Bai Weiwei: “……”
Ghost stooped down, and fumbled around with his hands, seeking his own eye.
Bai Weiwei wanted to run, but realized that her legs were too soft to run.
Seeing the ghost’s hand was going to touch her feet, she said with sore teeth, “Left, a point to the left.”
The ghost touched his eye, stuffed it back into his head, and showed a toothless smile.
“Girl, you are so kind. You see, I only have one eye, can you give me one?”
Bai Weiwei: “……”
She refused…… Refused numb, she should run.
Although Bai Weiwei knew very well in her mind that she had to stand in the same place and be subjected to a wave of ghost abuse.
To ensure that Ji Yongchuan’s plan succeeds.
But, she couldn’t endure it, she’d been afraid of these things since she was little.
That she could smile with Ji Yongchuan on the surface, her heart was mmp, already at the limit.
She turned to run, only to find her legs wouldn’t move.
The ghost jiejie2 laughed, then suddenly reached out to grip her neck with frightful strength.
It had a terrifying red eye, and it’s fetted fingers were slowly exerting force.
Bai Weiwei felt the pain of suffocation, her mouth was open, but she was deprived of breath.
The most agonizing torment wasn’t the physical pain, but the face in front of her…… How long hadn’t he washed it?
The blackened eye sockets, the dirty green gray skin, the rancid stink of rotted flesh.
No more, she was going to hurl.
One second before Bai Weiwei was strangled into directly rising to heaven, as her head was dizzy and her brain swelled, she suddenly thought of her childhood issues.
