Chapter 64 – Quell


The doors of the auditorium opened again, and Lin Qiye walked out slowly, carrying a black box.

Hong Ying, who was sitting on the stairs nearby, saw Lin Qiye coming out and waved her hand with a smile. “Is it done?”


“That’s good.” Hong Ying nodded, hesitated for a moment, and couldn’t help but ask, “By the way… why didn’t you let me take action?”

“He’s my classmate. Killing him with my own hands can be considered as giving him an explanation.” Lin Qiye said calmly.

Hong Ying was stunned. “Killing him with your own hands… can be considered as an explanation? What kind of theory is this?”

Si Xiaonan glanced at him and whispered, “Pervert…”

Of course, Lin Qiye was just making it up. He was afraid that if Hong Ying took action, she would kill the snake demon directly with a shot, and then he wouldn’t be able to take revenge, and Li Yifei wouldn’t be able to be reborn in the Divine Hospital.

“But thanks to you this time, otherwise we would have been deceived by that thing. I’ll give you first-class credit when we go back!” Hong Ying raised her thumb and said with a smile.

“What about these students inside?” Lin Qiye pointed to the auditorium behind him.

“Let them stay inside for now. Someone will come to use the ‘Dream Whisper’ later to erase all memories of the snake demon and you, and create a dream for them.”

“What about the dead students?” Lin Qiye couldn’t help but ask, “And you also blasted a building.”

“That’s not our problem to worry about. There will be a special department to handle everything and explain it reasonably, such as a laboratory explosion, a large-scale fire, terrorist bombing of the school, alien invasion, and so on…”

“…Are you sure the last one is reasonable?”

“It’s more reasonable than the arrival of mythology.”

“That’s true.”

Hong Ying pursed her lips and lowered her head slightly. “But… too many students have sacrificed, it’s all my fault…”

“Hong Ying, how can you blame yourself for this? Most of the students died because they were already infected with the snake seed… If it weren’t for you, there would have been even more casualties.” Si Xiaonan comforted from the side, then glanced at Lin Qiye and whispered, “And you, although I don’t want to admit it, you are indeed very powerful…”

Lin Qiye:…

“By the way, I met a very clever guy this time, and he seems to be very interested in mythical creatures. Can I recruit him into the Night Watchman?” Lin Qiye seemed to remember something and turned to Hong Ying.

This was the request made by An Qingyu to him in the auditorium just now.

Hong Ying hesitated for a moment, pondered, and said, “Qi Ye, the Night Watchman… is not something that can be joined just by being clever. This profession is very dangerous… Do you understand what I mean?”

Lin Qiye nodded slightly and didn’t persuade her anymore.

Helping An Qingyu make this request was already the limit he could do. After all, he himself was only a temporary member of the Night Watchman and had not officially joined. Since he was rejected, it was not good to continue to pester.

“Let’s go, it’s time to regroup.” Hong Ying stood up from the stairs, put the black box with the long spear on her back, and walked towards the door.

Lin Qiye glanced back at the auditorium and followed.

Inside the auditorium.

An Qingyu, who had been standing behind the door, looked downcast.

At this moment, his gaze fell on the body of the Nandu Snake Demon not far away.

After frowning and thinking for a long time, as if he had made up his mind, a gleam of light flashed in his eyes again!

Outside the school gate.

Two men were leaning against the door of a black van, silently watching the quiet campus.

The earphones of one of them rang, and Chen Muye’s eyebrows raised slightly.

“It’s over, they’re coming out.”

Wu Xiangnan’s face turned dark. “Why did she only tell you and not me?”

“I’m the team leader.”

“I’m still the deputy team leader!”

“Who told you to always oppose Hong Ying.”

“I’m just following the regulations.”

“You’re too rigid.” Chen Muye shook his head and smiled slightly, “So, Hong Ying is closer to me.”

“…It’s not like comparing whether a child is closer to their father or mother. Why does your tone sound strange?” Wu Xiangnan rolled his eyes.

“It’s pretty much the same.”

The two fell silent for a moment, and Chen Muye spoke again.

“I heard that Lin Qiye performed exceptionally well this time.”


“Do you think… we should show some appreciation since it’s his first mission?”

“Like what?”

“Like hanging a banner or something, and making him a cake when we go back.”

“… ” Wu Xiangnan sighed.

“What’s wrong?”

“I feel like you’re the parent waiting for the child who is about to finish first in the grade to come home from school. You’re practically writing ‘proud’ on your face…”

“Is that so? I feel pretty good.”

Just then, Wen Qimo, who was sitting in the driver’s seat, couldn’t help but roll down the car window and complain, “I’m telling you two, you’ve had enough fun. After completing a mission and picking them up, how can you be so playful…”

“What about Leng Xuan?”

“I don’t know, he always disappears.”


While they were bickering, three figures slowly walked out of the school gate. Hong Ying saw the two men next to the car from a distance and jumped up, waving at them with a smile.Si Xiaonan thought for a moment, secretly wiped some of Lin Qiye’s blood onto her face, making herself look like a painted cat. She held her head high and puffed out her chest, her face seemingly saying, “I didn’t slack off!”

Lin Qiye, with a black box on his back and his school uniform soaked in blood, was almost unrecognizable. He squinted slightly at the scene ahead, a hint of a smile playing at the corner of his mouth.

“Are you hurt?” Chen Muye asked as Lin Qiye approached him.

“No,” Lin Qiye shook his head.

“How do you feel?”

“Feel…” Lin Qiye pondered, “Simpler than I imagined.”

Chen Muye chuckled and nodded slightly, “Alright, get in the car. It’s time to go back.”

“Captain! Why don’t you ask me!” Hong Ying pouted, hands on her hips.

“You?” Wu Xiangnan glanced at her, “You didn’t demolish the school, that’s good enough. Why should I ask you?”

Hong Ying glared at Wu Xiangnan, grinding her teeth in anger, “Did I ask you? You’re not the captain!”

“I am the captain, albeit the vice one.”

“The vice doesn’t count!”

“Of course it does.”

“It doesn’t!!”



The crisp sound of a shutter echoed, a photo slid out from the bottom of the telescope, carefully picked up by a hand.

On a high-rise building not far away, Leng Xuan sat on the edge of the rooftop, gently swaying the photo in his hand, the image on it becoming increasingly clear.

A breeze brushed through his bangs, he looked down at the photo in his hand, a faint smile appearing on his lips.

“This one… is not bad either.”

He treasured the photo, carefully placing it into a box and storing it close to his body. Then, he leisurely stood up from the edge of the rooftop,

Hoisting the sniper rifle onto his shoulder, he disappeared into the night.
