Chapter 108: Call (2)
Ye Xi could tell something bad was up. The last time they talked, Zhazha told her about some traffickers here with guns, but god knows what worse news she’ll tell her this time?
“Shang Guanxi and Bing Yiyi are dead.”
“What?” Ye Xi froze for a moment. The news was overwhelming.
Shang Guanxi is dead?
Bing Yiyi as well?
One was part of the F4 while the other was the big villain. How did they die so fast?
What’s more, isn’t the theme of the story about campus life? Nobody should be dying!
Also, even if they did bad things in the past, that didn’t mean they should die!
“Yeah, but you don’t have to feel sad for them. They reached the riverbank and were planning to abandon all of you. Then, they never expected they’d find the traffickers and died.”
Ye Xi was speechless and even felt a little nauseated.
She couldn’t understand why these people could die so easily, and so quickly.
And what confused her even more was why the traffickers didn’t hide when they saw them, and instead chose to kill them.
They were traffickers and even murderers now, wouldn’t that make their sentence even heavier?
The more she thought about it, the more disgusted Ye Xi felt. She couldn’t help but bend down and retch.
Zhazha’s side turned silent.
After vomiting for a while, Ye Xi was just about to stand up when her legs went soft and she fell to the side. However, she fell into a wide embrace.
Ye Xi raised her head and saw that it was Wei Shenglan.
“Why did you come over?” Ye Xi asked subconsciously.
Wei Shenglan just about figured out Zhazha’s role. Not only can Zhazha call Ye Xi in the middle of a forest without any signal, she could even see things in a godlike perspective and find out everything that happens to them.
In that case, he didn’t have to conceal his ability any longer. Zhazha definitely knows, and will most likely tell Ye Xi.
So, he might as well fess up himself.
“Shang Guanxi and Bing Yiyi is dead?” Wei Shenglan asked.
Ye Xi, “How did you know?”
Wei Shenglan’s face was slightly tense, both from the shock of their death and also the fact that Ye Xi may not know about his ability at this moment.
How many could accept the fact that someone else could hear their thoughts?
Wei Shenglan did not know, but he had never even spoken of this to his family. Only Nan Gonghai and himself knew.
Nan Gonghai had always cared about whether something was interesting to him or not, otherwise, he didn’t care about his ability.
But what about Ye Xi?
Would she distance herself from him?
He had many worries, but he still said, “I have an ability that lets me hear what people are thinking.”
Ye Xi’s mind went blank. Her mind was completely incapable of processing this information.
Wei Shenglan waited quietly for her to digest what he told her, as if waiting for his death penalty to arrive.
After a long time, Ye Xi finally regained her senses. After some thought, she asked, “Then, what is the range of it? Can you control the ability?”
Wei Shenglan was stunned. He never expected her to ask him that. He felt a little lucky in his heart. Maybe Ye Xi didn’t care?
He responded, “I can control it. The range is about ten meters, but I might lost control of it for a few days each year. I have no way of controlling it during that period.”
Ye Xi broke free from his arms and rubbed her chin, saying, “Then let me just come out with you straight. Shang Guanxi and Bing Yiyi have been killed by traffickers, and, if we meet the traffickers, there’s a high chance we’ll die as well. So, you have to expand the full force of your ability now. If you can hear them, we’ll head a different direction. They have guns, it’ll only be trouble for us to bump into them. As for Nan Gonghai and the rest…Let’s not tell them about this. We’ll just make up some excuses later.”
Ye Xi felt that now was not the time to care about abilities and secrets or whatnot. Shang Guanxi and Bing Yiyi are dead, and they are also in danger. So, it’s better to think about how they’re going to survive right now.
Wei Shenglan agreed with her thoughts and nodded.
Seeing that he was in agreement, Ye Xi felt a little more at ease. Then, she asked, “Have you done it?”
Wei Shenglan nodded.
Ye Xi asked again, “Really? That easy? You don’t need to do anything or chant whatever?”
Wei Shenglan shook his head helplessly.
Ye Xi felt a little let down for some strange reason. She thought that an ability like this should at least be a little more fantasy-like or cooler.
Zhazha’s voice came out from the receiver of the phone that had been forgotten by Ye Xi.
Ye Xi looked at her phone and said, “If you could hear my thoughts this whole time, that also explains your strange behavior, so I’m not going to ask anymore. You must know as well that you’re actually the character of a novel, and now, so am I. The person talking to be is the creator of this world. The author, so to say, and she’s also human scum.”
Wei Shenglan had been caught up in that matter for quite a while now, so he could accept it quite easily when he heard it from her.
Ye Xi raised her phone and said, “Hey, you can continue talking.”
“The most important thing you have to remember is the fact that the traffickers have already found your tracks, and they’re now looking for you…”
Suddenly, Zhazha turned silent.
Ye Xi asked anxiously, “And?”
“My god!” Zhazha almost sounded like she was going to cry. She said, “It’s over, the novel is over, and you clearly haven’t done anything yet! If it ends, I don’t know if I can still—Beep, beep, beep—”
The call was forcibly disconnected.
