Chapter 29 – Handprints in the bathroom

If a ghost appears in the house, even the strongest person cannot continue to stay at home.

But in order to get that red newspaper again, Yang Jian had to take risks. This was an opportunity for him to overcome the revival of the fierce ghost.

“Wait here for that thing and see if it will come back here.” Yang Jian hesitated for a long time, but in the end, he chose not to leave and waited for the ghost to come back home.

Knowing that there was a ghost, he dared to wait for it here.

This requires great courage.

Of course, Yang Jian paid a great deal of courage. He stayed with the determination to die.

If he continued to live like this, it would just be slow suicide.

Once the eye in his body grew to an uncontrollable level…

He was waiting for the ghost at home.

In another high-end community in Dachang City.

This is Wang Shanshan’s home.

Since the haunted incident at school the day before yesterday, she has not stepped out of her house. She has been hiding at home for the past two days because she found that something was wrong with her house.

Inside the bathroom.

Water rushed down, flowing over her fair and delicate body.

But Wang Shanshan’s eyes were full of fear and a hint of madness. She held a toilet brush and frantically scrubbed a spot next to her neck in the mirror.

The delicate skin of the girl turned red from too much force.

Normally, a normal person would not be able to bear this kind of pain.

But Wang Shanshan seemed to have no feeling at all. Instead, she increased the strength of her scrubbing, and her expression became more and more frightened.

Soon, a piece of skin beside her neck cracked, and bright red blood spurted out.

The blood flowed down with the warm water of the bathroom, staining the floor red.

However, no matter how she scrubbed or how the blood flowed, two small black and blue handprints on the bloodstained skin were still clearly visible, as if they had grown together with the surrounding flesh and blood, a birthmark brought out from the womb that could not be washed away.

At this moment.

Wang Shanshan’s mother, Wang Haiyan, sat on the sofa in the living room, looking at the time on her watch, with a worried expression on her face.

“Daughter has been in the bathroom for more than two hours, and she took a shower in the morning… She won’t get sick or feel uncomfortable anywhere in her body.”

Wang Shanshan’s father, Wang Bin, also showed a worried look. “She has been acting strange since yesterday morning when she came back from school. She hardly eats and stays in her room all day… She turns on all the lights in the house during the day and is very afraid of the dark. If she continues like this, we should go see a doctor tomorrow.”

“Honey, did you find out what happened at school the night before yesterday? I’ve been trying to call the teacher, but I can’t get through.” Wang Haiyan said.

“I went to the school yesterday. Something did happen there, and it has been sealed off. All students are on vacation until further notice… When I went, I met many parents of the students.”Wang Bin frowned deeply as he smoked, his expression becoming serious.

“The parents of other students all say that their children have been missing since the night before last after self-study, and they can’t be reached by phone or found. And there are quite a few missing people.”

Wang Haiyan exclaimed, “How could this happen?”

“Something must have happened at the school, but we just don’t know yet. I was going to ask Shanshan, but I don’t want to put pressure on her in her current state,” Wang Bin said, extinguishing his cigarette.

“Shanshan must have experienced something, she looks like she’s been scared,” Wang Bin said seriously.

Wang Haiyan guessed, “Husband, do you think Shanshan met some bad people and was bullied? I saw a news story before about a girl who was dragged into a bathroom and bullied by a group of thugs. When she came back, she was mentally unstable and kept thinking she was dirty, and she kept taking showers… and eventually committed suicide.”

“Absolutely impossible. This is a large-scale student disappearance incident, and the school is covering it up. Oh, right, wasn’t Shanshan brought back by her classmate Yang Jian yesterday morning?” Wang Bin said.

“Yes, I’ve seen that classmate before,” Wang Haiyan said.

“He must know what happened to Shanshan. We should call him and ask,” Wang Bin said.

“I thought about it, but I don’t know his phone number,” Wang Haiyan said.

But at that moment…


They heard Wang Shanshan’s hysterical scream from the bathroom.

Wang Bin and his wife immediately changed their expressions and rushed to the bathroom door, but the door was locked and couldn’t be opened.

“Daughter, open the door, what happened? Mom is outside,” Wang Haiyan anxiously asked.

But Wang Shanshan’s screams continued to come from the bathroom.

Wang Bin felt that the situation might be very serious. His face changed, and he didn’t bother knocking on the door. He just forcefully broke open the bathroom door.


The door was smashed open.

Wang Haiyan, as a mother, rushed in first. She saw that the floor of the bathroom was covered in blood, and her face turned pale with fright. Then she saw her daughter curled up naked in the corner of the bathroom, her neck covered in blood, and her whole body stained with it. She was burying her head in fear, as if she had been greatly frightened.

“Daughter, what happened to you?” Wang Haiyan was heartbroken and almost cried. She covered her daughter with a towel.

“That thing came, it came, it’s outside the window, it’s outside the window… it came for me,” Wang Shanshan said in extreme fear. “Don’t come near me, don’t come near me.”

“What thing? There’s nothing outside the window, Shanshan, don’t scare yourself,” Wang Haiyan looked at the bathroom window and didn’t find anything.

“No, it’s outside the window, it’s watching me.”Wang Shanshan grabbed her mother’s arm in panic and said, “Yang Jian, I want Yang Jian. I want to go to Yang Jian’s house. I don’t want to stay here. Mom, I don’t want to die. I don’t want to die… Everyone is dead. They’re all dead. Su Lei, Zhao Yan, Liu Jiayi… They’re all dead.”

“Sob… I don’t want to die.”

As she spoke, Wang Shanshan buried herself in Wang Haiyan’s arms and cried bitterly.

“It’s okay, Shanshan. You’ll be fine. Mom is here with you,” Wang Haiyan comforted her while shedding tears.

“That thing found me. It’s outside the window, right outside the window. I’m going to die soon… Sob…” Wang Shanshan said.

Wang Haiyan glanced at the window and said, “There’s really nothing outside the window. We live on the sixteenth floor, and there’s nothing outside. Look for yourself if you don’t believe me.”

“Mom, it’s really here. I want to stay at Yang Jian’s house. I don’t want to die,” Wang Shanshan continued to sob, trembling all over.

At this time, Wang Bin, who was standing aside, fell silent for a moment and said, “Take Shanshan back to her room first and change into some clothes. Then, go to the clinic downstairs to bandage her wounds. Tomorrow, I’ll try to find Yang Jian and ask about the situation.”

Wang Haiyan nodded and helped Wang Shanshan out of the bathroom.

After the mother and daughter left, Wang Bin turned off the hot water in the bathroom and washed away the bloodstains on the floor.

As he was about to leave, he suddenly glanced at the bathroom window.

The window was closed.

Wang Bin leaned his head out and looked outside to see if there was really anything there.

They lived on the sixteenth floor, so how could there be anything outside?

Sure enough, Wang Bin didn’t see anything.

However, just as he was about to close the window, he suddenly froze.

The window was covered with a layer of water vapor, and a clear handprint was imprinted on it.

The handprint looked small, not that of an adult, but rather like that of a four or five-year-old child.

And the handprint extended from outside the window into the bathroom.

It was all over the steamy bathroom walls.

Even on the ceiling, there were handprints that Shanshan couldn’t reach.

The small handprints were densely packed and clearly visible.

Wang Bin’s heart trembled, feeling that something was very wrong.

Tonight, Wang Shanshan’s family didn’t sleep a wink.

Zhang Wei was also awake.

He had just returned home from the police station.

His father, Zhang Xiangu, thought he had done something bad and beat him up, not allowing him to go back to his room to sleep.

Zhang Wei stood on the balcony and looked outside, frowning and thinking all night.

Who… framed him?
