Chapter 46 – Campus Murder

Before setting off, Chen Muye and the others specifically instructed Lin Qiye to be careful in using his abilities.

Since it was impossible to identify the humans infected by these mythical creatures from their appearance, they had to find other ways to distinguish them. As the only one among them who possessed psychic power to sense the Forbidden Ruin, Lin Qiye was naturally very important.

Just as Lin Qiye had thought, his Seraphic Eyes could identify the infected individuals.

At this moment, in his spiritual perception field, Liu Xiaoyan appeared to be a flesh monster wearing human skin, skillfully manipulating that body and whispering to her desk mate as if it were natural.

In addition to Liu Xiaoyan, there was another infected individual in this classroom.

She was also a girl, and Lin Qiye didn’t have a deep impression of her. She belonged to the type of girl who was inconspicuous in the class. Her name was Han Ruoruo.

At this moment, she was quietly writing something and then turned around to pass a small note to the boy behind her.

Lin Qiye also knew the boy behind her, and they were quite familiar…

Liu Yuan.

Liu Yuan, who had pushed him when facing the ghost-faced person, was someone he would never forget.

“How many are there?” Chen Muye’s voice came through the earpiece.

“There are two in my classroom, and when I just arrived, I specifically checked all the classrooms on this floor. There are about six on this floor alone.”

“Can they be saved?”

“No.” Lin Qiye said firmly, “Their internal organs have already disappeared, and what’s inside them is a mass of bizarre flesh and blood. Even if those things are killed, they won’t survive. They died the moment they were eaten.”

Just on this floor, there were already six victims. If you looked at the entire school… how many people would die?

When a school has so many deaths at the same time, the school is basically done for.

And the social impact caused by this incident is even more terrifying!

Chen Muye remained silent for a long time on the other end of the earpiece before speaking slowly, “I understand… continue to observe, don’t alert the enemy.”


Lin Qiye took out pen and paper, attentively listening to the teacher’s lecture, just like an ordinary student.

After the teacher had been speaking for more than ten minutes, Li Yifei rushed to the door, panting, and knocked on it.


“Li Yifei? You’re late.” The teacher didn’t have a good expression for someone like Li Yifei who was always up to no good.

“Teacher, I had a sick leave. I have a note!” Li Yifei waved the note in his book.

The teacher glared at him, “Quickly go back to your seat. If you don’t do well on this test again, I will call your parents.”

Li Yifei hurriedly sat back next to Lin Qiye, lowered his head to take out his book, and asked Lin Qiye in a low voice, “How is it going?”

“I know a little, but not the whole picture.” Lin Qiye glanced outside the window, “I need an opportunity, an opportunity to sense all the teachers and students in the school.”

Li Yifei was taken aback, “You mean…”

“After this class, there will be a flag-raising ceremony. By then… I will be able to get a preliminary understanding of the situation.”

Lin Qiye’s eyes narrowed slightly.

Office building.

“403, 403… Found it.”

Hong Ying and Si Xiaonan walked to the door of the head teacher’s office and stopped at the same time. They exchanged a glance and quickly took their positions.

Si Xiaonan stood at the door with a black box on her back, while Hong Ying hid in the blind spot behind the door, ready to rush in at any moment.

Si Xiaonan cleared her throat and knocked on the door.

Knock, knock, knock!

After three knocks, the two of them held their breath and waited for a few seconds, but it was still quiet inside the room.

Hong Ying furrowed her eyebrows and gave Si Xiaonan a look.

Si Xiaonan knocked a few more times, but there was still no response.

Hong Ying gestured for Si Xiaonan to step back a few steps, and she herself walked to the front of the door. She took out a thin wire from her pocket and gently turned it in the lock.


With a soft sound, the door slowly opened.

Behind the door was an empty office.

Hong Ying cautiously walked into the room, searching around before finally letting out a sigh of relief after confirming that there was really no one.

“Sister Hong Ying, someone must have just left here. The cup is still hot.” Si Xiaonan reached out and touched the cup on the table, speaking up.

“They should have gone to a meeting. If they were just going to the bathroom, they wouldn’t have locked the door.” Hong Ying nodded slightly, “In any case, let’s search this place and see if there are any clues.”

Si Xiaonan nodded, “I’ll keep watch.”

She closed the door and hid by the window, taking out a delicate mirror from her pocket to carefully observe the surroundings through reflection.

Hong Ying quickly searched through the office, the desk, drawers, filing cabinets, flower pots… she searched everywhere she could, but apart from a pile of useless documents, she didn’t find anything valuable.

Suddenly, she stopped and sniffed carefully.

“Xiaonan, have you smelled anything?” Hong Ying’s eyebrows furrowed.

“Huh? I don’t think so.” Si Xiaonan sniffed carefully and answered in confusion.

Hong Ying’s eyebrows furrowed even tighter. She squatted down and followed that faint smell, and finally, her gaze fell on a piece of tile under the chair.

This tile looked clean and seemed to have been pried open.

She took out a small knife and forcefully pried the edge of the tile, revealing a small corner. A sour smell rushed out!Hong Ying, enduring the stench, gently pried out the object beneath the tile with the tip of her knife. It was a whole piece of yellowish-brown soft membrane…

As she spread out the membrane, Hong Ying’s pupils suddenly contracted!

“Skin… This is human skin!” Hong Ying abruptly looked up at Si Xiaonan, “Do these infected shed their skin?”

Si Xiaonan frowned, “Snakes?”

“Possibly. Report this information to Wu Xiangnan, we might be able to find information on this mythical creature.” Hong Ying quickly stuffed the skin back under the tile and covered it up.

Just as Hong Ying had concealed all traces of her presence, a sudden melody from outside the window startled her!

Recognizing the familiar tune, Hong Ying walked to the window, overlooking the increasing number of students emerging from the building, murmuring to herself:

“The flag-raising ceremony? Is the music for the flag-raising ceremony the same throughout The Great Xia…”

At this moment, Lin Qiye and Li Yifei were in the hallway, slowly moving down with the noisy crowd of students.

Li Yifei carefully looked around, then leaned in towards Lin Qiye’s ear,

“Qiye, does your joining them mean you also have that special ability?”


“Damn, I’m so envious… What’s your ability?”

“Using mental perception to sense nearby things, something like that.” Lin Qiye gave a vague answer.

“So, can you distinguish between monsters and humans?”


“Then… tell me the truth, how many are there in our class?”

“Two, Liu Xiaoyan and Han Ruoruo.”

Hearing these two names, Li Yifei seemed to breathe a sigh of relief, “Thank goodness, thank goodness Wu Shujie isn’t one. I’ve had a crush on her for so many years, if she turned into a monster, I probably wouldn’t date for the rest of my life.”

Lin Qiye: …

“So, how many are around me now?” Li Yifei asked worriedly.

“The fifth person in front of you, that girl, is also one.”

“Her?” Li Yifei recalled for a moment, “The one from the next class, I think her name is… Tian Li, she’s also turned into a monster… That’s not too surprising.”

Lin Qiye was taken aback, “Why?”

Li Yifei raised an eyebrow, “Didn’t you notice? Oh right, you’ve only just transferred here a few days ago, you wouldn’t know.”

“Notice what?”

“Liu Xiaoyan, Han Ruoruo, and Tian Li… They’re all in the same dormitory!”
