Chapter 62 – Two freaks

“No… this is impossible!” Li Yifei looked down at the gunshot wound on his chest, shaking his head repeatedly. “I couldn’t have killed anyone, let alone be a monster…”

“Li Yifei…” Lin Qiye grabbed Li Yifei’s collar, pulling his head towards his own, staring into his terrified eyes.

“Look into my eyes!”


Two golden flames ignited in Lin Qiye’s eyes, and the divine might of the seraph poured into Li Yifei’s spiritual world, rushing in madly.

In just a moment, Li Yifei’s eyes rolled back, and he fainted cleanly.

But the next moment, a strong hand suddenly grabbed Lin Qiye’s wrist, and Li Yifei’s eyes suddenly opened!

Those were a pair of eerie vertical pupils, calm and profound.

“Interesting… How did you find out?” Li Yifei’s voice was deep and calm. “With your ‘lantern’ realm perception, you shouldn’t have been able to see through my disguise.”

“I indeed didn’t see through it, otherwise, you would have been exposed in the underground of the office.” The flames in Lin Qiye’s eyes still hadn’t extinguished. “Since entering the school, everything that has happened seems reasonable, but it also reveals a sense of strangeness everywhere.”

“Are you saying… you deduced it?”

“Sort of. There were just too many flaws you left behind.”

“Oh?” Li Yifei’s eyes narrowed slightly. “Tell me.”

“The first doubt lies in your sick leave note.” Lin Qiye calmly spoke, “When you entered the classroom this morning, you brought the sick leave note with you.”

“So what?”

“According to your statement, you discovered that you forgot to bring your homework book after school yesterday, and you witnessed Liu Xiaoyan eating people after returning to the school. After that, you hurriedly left the school and found us, the Night Watchman…

So… when did you get the sick leave note?”

Lin Qiye sneered twice. “Don’t tell me that after witnessing the cannibalism last night, you guessed that you would be acting with us today, so you specially went to the administrative office to get a sick leave note. You should know that the administrative office had already closed by then.

Therefore, there are only two possibilities.

The first possibility is that you had already prepared the sick leave note and planned to skip school and play today, but coincidentally encountered the cannibalism scene last night.

The second possibility… is that you actually knew we would come, and even prepared to come in with us.”

Li Yifei fell silent for a moment. “Continue.”

“The second doubt lies in the pieces of human skin on the balcony of the girls’ dormitory.

Logically speaking, the Nandu Snake Demon is a very cautious creature. Since it has been hiding in human society for so long, it would never blatantly hang human skin on the balcony, as the risk of exposure would be too high!

But it did exactly that… At first, I didn’t understand the meaning behind it, but later I realized that it was deliberately hinting to us that it is here, in this dormitory building.

It wants us to find it!”

Lin Qiye looked into Li Yifei’s eyes. “And then, you appeared. You appeared inexplicably, as if you wanted to lead Hong Ying away and trigger a riot in the entire school!

Then, Li Yifei stood up like a savior, leading a group of students to successfully resist the attacks of the snake demon offspring, just like a textbook survival template!”

“Actually, at that time, I didn’t suspect you. What really made me suspicious of you was An Qingyu.” Lin Qiye’s gaze fell on An Qingyu behind him.

Li Yifei’s neck twisted unnaturally to the back, observing the thin and weak boy wearing glasses.

An Qingyu pushed his glasses and spoke, “The number of snake demon offspring besieging us has always been strange.

When those snake demon offspring first appeared, everyone was rushing upstairs, but only our classroom blocked the doors and windows with desks and chairs, defending inside the classroom.

At that time, most of the snake demons either went to the fourth floor, breaking through your hallway, or stayed on the first floor, cutting off everyone’s escape route. The only ones that truly stayed on the third floor and attempted to attack our classroom were only two.

Generally, when a group of hunters have two types of prey in their field of vision, one being stronger and difficult to overcome, while the other being weaker and easily obtainable, they usually besiege the weaker one, which is us.

At first, I thought it was due to a lack of information, and the other snake demon offspring were attracted by you to go upstairs, unaware of our existence on the third floor. But later, I discovered that these snake demons’ field of vision is connected.”

An Qingyu paused and continued, “In other words, they knew that there was a piece of fat right under their feet, but they still remained indifferent, as if…

They intentionally left us alone.”

“Afterwards, Li Yifei appeared with a group of people, and the six snake demon offspring downstairs were provoked to attack. This number was also very delicate, bringing us great pressure but not directly rendering us defenseless!

Even if one more of them came up, we wouldn’t have been able to withstand it at that time, but it just didn’t happen.””Just as Lin Qiye was about to arrive, the six serpent demon offspring suddenly exerted their strength, pushing us to the brink… All of this is too coincidental, too eerie!”

“So, just because of these, you suspect me?” Li Yifei’s eyebrows furrowed tightly.

“No, what really made me suspect you was the act of the serpent demon offspring cutting your thick rope.” An Qingyu shook his head, “When you were rappelling down, the two serpent demons didn’t see this scene. They should not have known about the existence of this rope.

Yet, the subsequent six serpent demon offspring precisely cut the thick rope as soon as they arrived, as if they knew very clearly that this was your escape route.

The serpent demon offspring cut something they shouldn’t have seen, which can only explain one problem…

Among us, there is another existence that shares their field of vision!”

An Qingyu spread his hands, “Of course, I didn’t understand the serpent demon at that time. The subsequent conclusion was inferred after I exchanged information with Lin Qiye.”

Li Yifei’s vertical pupils stared at An Qingyu, and he sneered twice, “If I had known you were so smart, I should have killed you from the start.”

“Also, every time the serpent demon appears, you are not present.” Lin Qiye continued, “The first time we encountered the serpent demon was in the girls’ dormitory. I ask you, after you confessed to Wu Shujie, where did you go before you returned to the second-year classroom?”

“When Lin Qiye and the others were fighting with the serpent demon just now, you also left to search for other surviving students, which further confirmed my judgment.” An Qingyu continued.

Li Yifei looked at An Qingyu, then turned his head to look at Lin Qiye,

He laughed at himself twice,

“How did I end up with you two freaks?”
