Chapter 33: Sleep Together? (1)
Hearing this, Ye Sui glanced around the bus in a daze. Each seat was full of “people”, jam-packed.
Haha! Indeed it was empty.
Ye Sui continuously felt a swishing cold at her back, but she did not dare to look behind. She was glad Chen Shu’s yang energy was sufficient as there were no “people” around them to sit.
Just as Chen Shu said this sentence, he noticed Ye Sui’s face turning white, and she looked very uneasy.
Chen Shu frowned: “Are you very uncomfortable?”
Ye Sui leaned against Chen Shu: “Chen Shu, don’t you think the bus is a little cold?”
Since Chen Shu was protected with his own yang energy, he didn’t know what it felt like being air-conditioned by the ghosts. He suddenly bent down and took out a thermos cup from the bag lying at the foot of Ye Sui.
Chen Shu handed it over to her. “Drink more hot water if you feel cold.”
Although Chen Shu was considerate, surrounded by ghosts in the bus, Ye Sui was still frightened.
The bus was very quiet, only the sound of wind coming from outside the window. This road was inherently remote, and few vehicles would travel here, not to mention people.
Ye Sui’s breathing was almost stagnated as she began to have devious thoughts.
Chen Shu was sitting next to her. She didn’t take advantage of him and only felt sorry for herself.
As soon as Ye Sui’s dishonest thoughts began to form, she immediately took action. She silently moved to Chen Shu’s side, pretending to inadvertently put her arm on his.
Hmmph! She forgot that it was autumn now, and this move might have such a great advantage to take.
Ye Sui secretly glanced at Chen Shu. Only his face and hands were exposed.
At this point, Chen Shu’s eyes were closed for a rest, seemingly very tired. But this just gave Ye Sui a chance.
Ye Sui quietly reached out her palm towards Chen Shu’s hand to touch it.
Just a little closer, but then Chen Shu suddenly put his hand down and put it into his pocket. Ye Sui’s hand was awkwardly suspended in mid-air.
She hastened to see Chen Shu’s expression, but his eyes were shut, and it seemed he did not mean to open them any time soon.
Ye Sui had to change her target towards Chen Shu’s face to poke. I will withdraw my hand as soon as I press lightly. Ye Sui’s fingertip and Chen Shu’s face were just 0.1 cm apart.
Without warning, the driver shouted out over there, causing Ye Sui to shrink her hand back guiltily.
“Who wants to get off at this stop?” The driver’s voice was so loud that it echoed in the whole bus.
The worked-up driver needed to know who was getting off the bus only by shouting at the top of his lungs. The next second, the vehicle stopped slowly.
“Oldman Hu! What’s wrong with you? We are all going to the terminal. Who wants to get off here?” An aunt ghost who was looking down shouted at the driver.
Ye Sui’s eyes drifted toward the bus route map. The last stop showed “The Emperor Cemetery”.
The driver, who had been scolded, said, “I’m just joking. It’s a long night, and we have to have some fun.”
Amid all the foul-mouthed noise, the bus continued to move forward, and Ye Sui did not dare to ask to get off.
“Oh, dear.” A sigh suddenly rang out from the quiet vehicle. The source of the sound was just in front of Ye Sui.
Ye Sui suddenly froze, bowed her head, and vowed to keep a firm eye on her toes.
Sigh. Another long groan.
“My son is the top scorer this year’s college entrance examination. Just because I… because I… can’t even visit the college.” The sobbing voice heard.
“It’s all my fault; it’s all my fault!”
The next second, there came a sound of slapping. Ye Sui imagined the scene at this time: the vexed ghost slapping his own face.
“Stop whining, you’re all dead. The children’s affairs can only be decided by fate.” From the front, the old aunt ghost heard the crying and exhorted him, who was crying.
Next, the whole bus began to talk. They seemed to be accustomed to this matter. Almost everyone had regrets but could only accept their fate.
Ye Sui glimpsed above from the corner of her eye. The ghost, who was still relentlessly slapping himself, was middle-aged, wearing semi-old clothes, and seemed to be used to live a harsh life.
Ye Sui suddenly looked at those ghosts. After peaking for a second, she turned to stare at Chen Shu and unexpectedly met Chen Shu’s eyes.
Chen Shu looked at Ye Sui’s eyes suddenly lit up, appearing as if she wanted something.
“What’s the matter?” Chen Shu asked.
Ye Sui hesitated for a long time but was too embarrassed to say anything. “Nothing.” Bear with it; there may be a few more stops until the terminal.
Ye Sui reluctantly turned her head away. She just wanted to hold hands. Fortunately, Chen Shu was nearby, so the spirits would not come near her. Even if she could see them, she could only endure.
“We’ve arrived at the terminal!” The driver yelled again.
The front and back doors of the bus were all opened, and the ghosts on the bus began to get off one after another. Ye Sui initially wanted to wait until the end.
But Chen Shu was indifferent. He picked up the bag that Ye Sui put at her feet and got off through the back door. Ye Sui quickly followed.
Seeing Chen Shu coming over, the ghosts quickly gave way to let him pass. They desperately retreated and were almost trampled.
“Thank you for riding on bus 318. See you again.” The driver smiled twice, with a meaningful tone.
