Chapter 56 – The little pig that is about to be eaten

Upon hearing the supervisor’s words, He Gu felt as if he had fallen into an ice cave, and a chill ran down his spine, causing his hair to stand on end.

What does it mean to push him in!?

The supervisor left immediately after saying this, without giving He Gu a chance to react.

He Gu stood alone at the door of Warehouse 44, feeling increasingly uneasy.

Something’s not right, the supervisor is acting very strange!

He Gu carefully pondered over the words. If he approached the loading dock… he could be pushed in…

Thinking back to his own experience last night, He Gu couldn’t help but feel even more panicked.

Did the supervisor say the same thing to 441 last night?

So, did 441 come looking for trouble last night, and then the supervisor stopped him, and then… 441 is missing today!

The more He Gu thought about it, the more unsettled he felt, deeply disturbed.

Outside, the sky had already turned completely dark, and He Gu sat at the door of the warehouse, feeling restless.

Time passed second by second.

For two consecutive hours, there was no activity inside or outside the warehouse.

The time came to 21:58.

At this moment, He Gu suddenly heard a “beep” in his ears.

Immediately after, dizziness, headache, nausea, and a series of uncomfortable feelings came one after another, just like last night.

Without needing to check the time, He Gu knew that it was almost ten o’clock!

Enduring the discomfort, He Gu immediately took out a small bottle from his pocket, unscrewed the cap, took out a pill, and quickly swallowed it.

A few seconds later, the uncomfortable feelings disappeared simultaneously.

Just like last night, the effect of the pill was immediate.

Feeling the miraculous “effect” of the pill, He Gu discreetly glanced at the security guard sitting across from the warehouse.

In the darkness, he could vaguely see a figure sitting in a rocking chair, a red light flickering, as if smoking.

After a brief glance, He Gu quietly withdrew his gaze, got up, and began to move around.

Stretching lazily, He Gu quietly walked to the back of the warehouse, behind a pile of boxes.

This was a blind spot, blocking the view from outside the door.

Then, He Gu leaned against the boxes, exhaled deeply, and looked down at the palm of his hand with a complex expression.

In the palm of He Gu’s right hand, a quiet white pill lay.

Just now, He Gu had pretended to take the pill, but he had actually hidden it in his hand!

And the most bizarre thing was that although He Gu hadn’t taken the pill, his discomfort disappeared after he pretended to take it!

With this simple test, He Gu obtained a lot of information!

The notebook left by 424 mentioned that one must never take the pill, but also must not let others discover that they haven’t taken it. It’s best to take it in front of others and then find an opportunity to spit it out.

And the notebook also mentioned that “it” could see itself where there are people, and most of the time it’s safe where there are no people.

Today, He Gu just happened to discover that there was a security guard sitting across from Warehouse 44…

And with this clever deception, He Gu successfully verified everything!

At this moment, He Gu felt both shocked and delighted, and the more he thought about it, the more terrified he felt.

Why did “it” want everyone in the factory to take the pill on time?

Even the supervisor repeatedly emphasized to He Gu that he must take the pill on time.

What would be the result of taking this pill?

He Gu had taken it once last night, and so far, there didn’t seem to be any direct consequences.

And since this pill needed to be taken at the same time every day, it meant that it didn’t have an immediate effect, but needed to be taken for a long time to be effective!

But what was the purpose of this pill?

He Gu furrowed his brow, lost in thought.

Just then, the wooden box that He Gu was leaning against suddenly made a loud “bang.”

He Gu was startled, jumped, and looked at the box warily.

A few seconds later, the box began to make banging noises, as if someone inside was frantically hitting it.

The box shook, just like last night.

As He Gu considered whether to use the walkie-talkie to call the supervisor over, a hoarse voice suddenly came from inside the box: “Let me out! Let me out!”

Hearing this voice, He Gu’s heart skipped a beat.

There was someone in the box!

At the same time, He Gu immediately thought of Rule 3, Article 3: If you hear someone in the box talking to you, absolutely do not answer!

This was a rule that meant certain death!

Thinking of this, He Gu dared not pay attention to the voice, and instead took a few steps back, sat back on the chair, and picked up the walkie-talkie.

At this moment, the hoarse voice from inside the box continued to shout: “Let me out!”

“Poor little pig outside, if you don’t want to die, let me out!”

…At this moment, another relatively deep voice suddenly emerged from another box: “Save your breath, he can’t hear you.”

“Expecting him to help, when that poor little pig can’t even save himself?”

Hearing this, He Gu’s heart tightened, and his eyes widened in shock.

There’s someone in the other box too!?

Wait, he said I can’t hear?

What does that mean?

Is it a trap to lure me into responding?

For a moment, He Gu’s mind raced with thoughts.

The hoarse voice suddenly burst into wild laughter: “Hahahaha…”

“Indeed, that poor little pig won’t last long before his supervisor devours him… he might even be eaten before me!”

“Poor thing, if he hadn’t taken those disgusting pills, I would have told him just how pitiful he is!”

The other deep voice sighed: “Save your energy, he’s just like the other piglets, taking his medicine on time every day. Whether you insult him or mock him, he hears none of it.”

“Last night, he even captured my face on his phone, but what of it? He still can’t see.”

The hoarse voice fell silent for a while, then suddenly started crying: “I can’t accept this, I just can’t…”

“Little pig, let me out, and I’ll get you a set of blue clothes that can save you from being eaten!”

“Are you listening?!”

“Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah… Why can’t you hear?!”

The hoarse voice began to go mad, screaming and pounding on the wooden box.

The box was being smashed so loudly that it “bang bang” resonated, the whole box shaking violently, even moving more than half a meter from its original position.

However, He Gu was already petrified, his mind completely occupied by the conversation he had just heard.

What on earth is in the box!?

They said I would be eaten… what does that mean!?
