Chapter 33 – Nine o’clock arrived

The fat chef is dead!

Watching the fat chef being carried into the black van, He Gu felt a little heavy-hearted.

First, it was the dormitory manager, and now it’s the fat chef…

Everyone who helped He Gu is dead.

He Gu understood that “it” was getting anxious.

The more “it” panicked, the closer He Gu was to the checkpoint.

He Gu took a deep breath and tried to stay calm.

After the fat chef was carried into the car, several workers in red uniforms quickly walked out of the canteen and hung a sign at the door that read “Closed.”

The canteen was closed.

Through the closed glass door of the canteen, He Gu saw his own injured face, with sunken eye sockets and cheeks, and a bluish complexion.

With the canteen closed, He Gu couldn’t eat meat, and his zombie-like body couldn’t be healed.

He Gu knew that he didn’t have much time left.

Either he had to leave here as soon as possible, or he would die here before long.

This made He Gu feel a little anxious.

Seeing that he couldn’t eat in the canteen, He Gu turned and went back to the dormitory.

In the dormitory, Little Yin sat on the bed playing with her phone, occasionally glancing at He Gu.

On He Gu’s bedside, the parrot that had completely “reddened” stood quietly in its cage, tilting its head to look at He Gu, with a strange light in its pitch-black eyes.

But He Gu ignored all of this and sat on the bed holding his phone in a daze.

Time passed second by second, and the sky outside had completely darkened.

It was at this moment that He Gu’s phone suddenly vibrated.

It was a call from an unfamiliar number.

He answered the phone, and immediately heard the voice of a strange man on the other end: “Hello, is this He Gu?”

He Gu replied, “Yes, it’s me.”

The other party said, “I’m Zhou Ming from the freight department of Kant Medicine Factory. The HR department asked us to deliver the goods and take you back. You should have received the notice, right?”

“We’re almost done here, please wait for us at the school gate at nine o’clock…”

Before the other party could finish speaking, He Gu hung up the phone directly.

At this time, He Gu looked at the time and found that it was already eight o’clock in the evening.

He Gu immediately jumped off the bed and walked out of the dormitory.

Arriving at the door of the neighboring Room 303, He Gu knocked heavily on the door a few times.

There was dead silence inside, with no response at all. Was Wang Tao not there?

He Gu knocked on the door a few more times, still no response.

Helpless, He Gu quickly went downstairs and searched the playground, but still couldn’t find Wang Tao.

Did Wang Tao not come back after sleepwalking during the day?

He Gu felt a little anxious, but couldn’t think too much about it, and walked in the direction of the store.

Perhaps because he had been cast in shadow by the black cat during the day, this time He Gu deliberately took a longer route and avoided the small grove.

Soon, He Gu arrived at the entrance of the store.

Just like before, He Gu carefully checked to see if there were any parrot feathers on him, then glanced inside the store and saw a cashier standing behind the counter in a white uniform, before walking in with confidence.


The cashier still didn’t look up and just called out.

He Gu walked straight into the store, but saw a store clerk in an orange uniform in the corner, tidying up the goods on the shelves.

The clerk glanced at He Gu, suddenly stopped what he was doing, and just stared at He Gu.

He Gu took a deep breath, ignored the clerk, and walked straight to the shelf with the “Delicious Jerky” label that he remembered.

This time, the shelf was finally not empty.

He Gu saw a palm-sized bag of jerky on the shelf, just one bag.

And just as He Gu took the bag of jerky off the shelf, the clerk in the orange uniform suddenly put down what he was holding and quickly walked towards He Gu.

He Gu’s heart tightened and he hurriedly turned and walked towards the cashier.

The clerk in the orange uniform also quickly followed, standing next to He Gu, staring straight at him with his eyes.

The first rule of the store is: there is no “Delicious Jerky” for sale in the store. If you see it on the shelf, please hand it over to the clerk in the orange uniform.

Obviously, the clerk in the orange uniform wanted He Gu to give him the bag of “Delicious Jerky.”

Of course, He Gu had already confirmed that this rule was wrong, so he naturally wouldn’t give the jerky to him.

Despite the clerk standing next to him, staring at He Gu with bulging eyes, He Gu still put the bag of “Delicious Jerky” on the counter and paid for it.

After paying, He Gu couldn’t help but ask, “Do you have any more packs of Haomaiduo beef jerky? My roommate asked me to get him one.”The clerk behind the cash register, without lifting her head, said in a harsh tone, “Each person is limited to one purchase of this item. You’ve already bought it and cannot buy it for someone else.”

He Gu, left with no choice, turned and left.

Perhaps the afternoon’s experience had cast a shadow over He Gu.

After leaving the store, He Gu didn’t stop for a moment and immediately started running back.

Just like on his way there, He Gu took a longer route to avoid passing through the small grove.

A dozen minutes later, He Gu returned to his dormitory.

By this time, it was already 20:37.

As soon as he got back to the dormitory, He Gu sensed that something was off.

Little Yin had reverted to her disheveled appearance, with half of her face covered by her hair, exuding a sinister vibe.

And the parrot in the cage, upon seeing He Gu, suddenly flapped its wings and let out a hoarse “heh heh heh…” laugh.

Both Little Yin’s appearance and the parrot’s seemingly mocking laughter made He Gu’s scalp tingle.

He Gu decided to move the parrot outside the door ahead of time, then climbed into bed to wait quietly.

Time ticked by, second by second, drawing closer to nine o’clock.

Blue Star.

At this moment, the ghost story live streams of China, Russia, and Australia were bustling with activity.

Since only the players from these three countries were still alive in this instance, and it seemed to have reached a critical moment, almost the entire global audience was focused on the situation in these three live streams.

“According to the information obtained by the Chinese player, the person coming to pick them up tonight is an impostor. However, the players from Russia and Australia are unaware of this. It looks like soon only the Chinese player will be left in this instance.”

“Damn it! What is the National Paranormal Incident Response Office doing? Send a tip to Ivanov now!”

“The chance to send tips has already been used up. Ivanov is already waiting at the school gate. It looks like our Russia is about to be invaded by the supernatural…”

“Oh God, Klaus has also headed to the school gate. Are we really just going to watch him walk to his doom?”

At this time, among the three countries with surviving players, only the Chinese audience remained relatively calm.

The people from Russia and Australia were almost frantic.

Everyone had learned from the Chinese live stream that the person coming to pick up the players tonight was a fake.

But their players were completely unaware, and they hadn’t even discovered the “correct use of the parrot.”

Amidst the wails and cries in the live stream’s barrage of comments, nine o’clock arrived…
