Chapter 13 – He ran away

Cangnan City, a tall building.


The door slowly opened, and Zhao Kongcheng walked in, looking dejected and sighing from time to time.

“Old Zhao, what’s wrong with you?”

The five people sitting in the room were somewhat surprised to see Zhao Kongcheng in such a state and asked.

“Did you get injured last night?”

“Judging from your expression, it’s more likely that you’re heartbroken…”

“Oh my god, Old Zhao, is it possible that your wife wants a divorce?”

“Stop talking nonsense.”

The five people speculated one after another, and after a while, the silent Zhao Kongcheng sighed softly.

“Am I really… so unattractive?”


The five people rolled their eyes at the same time, pretending not to have heard this sentence, and continued to busy themselves with their own tasks, some sharpening knives, some cleaning guns, some playing with their phones, and some taking a nap…

“No, I’m serious when I ask you!” Zhao Kongcheng became anxious when no one paid attention to him.

Seeing that no one was paying attention to Zhao Kongcheng, Hong Ying, who was cleaning her gun, sighed, “Are you feeling down?”

“Sort of.” Zhao Kongcheng paused, “I met the owner of the Golden Forbidden Ruin last night.”

Upon hearing this, everyone suddenly looked up, stopped what they were doing, and their eyes began to shine.

“The guy who seems to be the agent of the Seraph?”


“Is he strong? Who is he?”

“You guys are overthinking.” Zhao Kongcheng shook his head, “He’s just an ordinary high school student. The power fluctuations of the ‘Klein’ level should only be the residual power left by the Seraph on him. He is still a newcomer who has just entered the ‘Zhan’ realm.”

Upon hearing this, a hint of disappointment appeared in the eyes of several people.

“I thought a ‘Klein’ level powerhouse had come to Cangnan City…”

“But it’s also true. If that extremely dangerous god really chose an agent and grew to the ‘Klein’ level, the higher-ups couldn’t possibly not know.”

The man sitting on the sofa narrowed his eyes slightly, “Anyway, the Seraph choosing an agent and bestowing the Divine Ruin is a big deal. We need to report to the higher-ups as soon as possible.”

“Right, Old Zhao, since you met him, didn’t you bring him back? Such an important person, didn’t you bring him back?”

“He ran away…” Zhao Kongcheng sighed softly, “He told me to get his backpack, and then he ran away while I was distracted.”

“…” Everyone was speechless.

Just as everyone was preparing to mock him, the door of the room was opened again.

A man wearing a dark red cloak walked in, with blood stains still on his face, and his footsteps were heavy as if he had been filled with lead.

Seeing this man, including Zhao Kongcheng, everyone stood up immediately.


“Captain, are you okay?”

The captain waved his hand, took off the blood-stained cloak, and sat down on the small stool near the door. There was an indescribable exhaustion between his eyebrows.

“I’m fine, but… the Ghost-Faced King escaped.”

The faces of several people instantly became serious.

The captain continued, “I chased the Ghost-Faced King all the way to the outskirts of the northern city last night and fought it. It was seriously injured, but it resorted to self-harm to escape.”

“So, the Ghost-Faced King may have already escaped from Cangnan City?”

“No, not necessarily.” The man sitting on the sofa suddenly spoke.

Everyone looked at him, and the captain’s eyebrows slightly raised, “Tell us, Xiangnan.”

Wu Xiangnan stood up slowly, took out a map of the surrounding area of Cangnan City from under the sofa, and spread it out on the ground.

“Cangnan City is located in a relatively remote area and is far from the nearby cities. The captain fought with the Ghost-Faced King in the outskirts of the northern city last night. Apart from Cangnan City, the nearest city is dozens of kilometers away.” Wu Xiangnan drew a circle on the map.

“So what?” Hong Ying looked puzzled.

At this moment, the captain’s eyes gradually lit up, “Go on, Xiangnan.”

Wu Xiangnan continued with the captain’s words, “If the Ghost-Faced King wants to regain its strength, it can only feed on humans, which means…”

“It must still return to Cangnan City?”


Zhao Kongcheng frowned slightly, “But Cangnan City is so big, we have no idea where it will appear.”

“Sewers.” Wu Xiangnan pushed his glasses and used a red pen to draw a curve on the map, “The Ghost-Faced people like to go into the sewers, and the Ghost-Faced King escaped through the sewers before. There is only one sewer connecting the northern city outskirts, which means that the place where the Ghost-Faced King appears is very likely to be somewhere along this sewer.”

“Send people to search along this sewer immediately. This time, we must not let it escape!” The captain’s eyes flashed with coldness as he gave the order.

“Understood!””By the way, there’s one more thing.” Wu Xiangnan turned to Zhao Kongcheng, “We must bring back the Seraph’s agent. His potential is too great, we absolutely can’t let him fall into the hands of the Ancient God Church! In a sense, this matter has a higher priority than eliminating the Ghost Face King!”

Zhao Kongcheng immediately puffed up his chest: “Leave this to me, I will personally bring this kid back!”

“Didn’t he run away? Can you still find him?” Hong Ying muttered quietly.

“He’s wearing the uniform of the Second Middle School, I’ll stake out at the school gate today, I don’t believe I can’t catch him!”

A confident smile appeared at the corner of Zhao Kongcheng’s mouth.


“Bro, why aren’t you going to school today?”

Yang Jin looked at Lin Qiye, who was not wearing a school uniform or carrying a school bag, and asked curiously.

“I have something to do today, so I won’t go.” Lin Qiye put on his shoes and opened the door, “Is Aunt still sleeping?”

“She just got back an hour ago.”

“I see, go to school early, don’t follow my example.”


Lin Qiye closed the door and quietly took off the black satin from his glasses and put it in his pocket.

His eyes had recovered, but he hadn’t told his aunt or Yang Jin yet. One reason was that his aunt had been working the night shift last night, and they hadn’t seen each other.

As for the second point, Lin Qiye had just acquired these eyes and was still unable to control the power in them well. The golden light would sometimes suddenly emerge from the bottom of his eyes. Although it wasn’t very obvious, if his aunt saw it, she would definitely force him to get his eyes checked again, which would be a waste of money.

He decided to wait until he could fully control his eyes before announcing this.

However, since he had left the house, there was no need for Lin Qiye to wear the black satin anymore, as it was too conspicuous.

Lin Qiye took out the sunglasses that Yang Jin had bought for him from his pocket, put them on, and strode towards the bus stop.

After more than an hour of jolting, Lin Qiye finally arrived at his destination.

Sunshine Mental Hospital.

The last time Lin Qiye came here was ten years ago.

In these ten years, Lin Qiye had changed a lot, and this mental hospital had also changed a lot.

All the old walls had been renovated, the gate was twice as wide as before, two modern high-rise buildings had replaced the original three-story building, and even the six big characters “Sunshine Mental Hospital” had become gilded hot stamping!

Standing at the gate, Lin Qiye could no longer associate the modern hospital in front of him with the small building in his memory.

The only thing that hadn’t changed, perhaps, was the old man at the gate.

Only his figure had become much more hunched, and his hair much whiter.

The old man seemed to have noticed Lin Qiye, squinted his eyes, and raised his right hand to point at Lin Qiye…

Just as Lin Qiye thought the old man still remembered him and was about to greet him,

The old man shouted:

“Hey, you silly boy over there! You’re blocking the cars behind you!”
