Asking About The Deadly Hide-and-seek Between Ghost Pets (2)


Because it had rained, it was still gloomy outside, and there was no movement outside until almost eight o'clock.

Zhou Yue was heard shouting in panic: "Everyone, come out quickly, something happened!"

I looked at Li Yue. She hadn't slept all night. She looked tired at the moment.

"You rest here and I'll go take a look." I said softly.

Li Yue shook her head, "I'm with you, I'm afraid of being alone."

Bang bang bang, Zhou Yue knocked on the door vigorously.

"Shen Ran, Li Yue, come out quickly!"

I frowned and replied: "Stop knocking, come right away."

Everyone was in the living room, which meant that nothing happened last night. So what did Zhou Yue mean when he said something happened?

Zhou Yue looked solemn. After seeing everyone gathered, he said: "The body… is gone."

I jumped up from the sofa and said in disbelief: "What?"

"It rained too much last night. I went to check the body this morning and found it was empty under the blanket."

Zhou Yue held his head and said in pain.

I remembered the counting sounds last night. It was impossible. Wang Li was indeed dead!

I was hesitating whether to mention this matter, but Li Yue on the side spoke first: "We heard Wang Li's voice last night!"

As soon as the words came out, everyone turned pale. Xu Wen retorted with a trembling voice: "It's impossible. Don't scare everyone on purpose."

"What I said is true, Shen Ran and I both heard it!" Li Yue said as she looked towards me, with pleading in her eyes.

I nodded helplessly, "Yes, I heard her. She was counting."

"Count? What to count?" Zhou Yue asked anxiously.

"It's… the hide-and-seek kind. It's the same as the scene when we played the game last night." I recounted it with difficulty. I didn't intend to say it because it would only make everyone more panic.

And judging from the situation this morning, no one else should have heard the sound last night, otherwise they would not have said anything.

Why were I the only one who heard it?

At this moment, everyone fell silent, not knowing what they were thinking.

After a while, Li Yue said: "Are we still calling 120?"

Zhou Yue immediately refused: "Why call 120 when the body is gone?"

"Then why don't you call the police?"

"Are you a fool?" Zhou Yue shouted, "Now that the body is not there, the police will only suspect that we killed Wang Li when they come."

Li Yue said nothing.

Zhou Yue was right.

"I want to go home…" Xu Wen whispered with a tearful voice.

"We can't go back now." I said with a sad look on my face, "We said we would play for three days, and the car won't come until three days later."

"We can walk down the mountain"

I sarcastically said, "Then we went back and Wang Li didn't go back. Isn't it strange?"

"Now what?"

"Find the body." I said solemnly.

Everyone suddenly became quiet again, Zhou Yue nodded, "Xiao Ran is right, only by finding the body can we prove our innocence."

"Zhou Yue, you were the first to discover that the body was missing. Could it be that you hid it?" Chen Wei asked, staring at Zhou Yue.

"What do you mean? Is there any evidence?"

"Okay, let's start looking separately, hurry up!"

I urged, are you still in the mood to quarrel now?


Wang Li's villa is surrounded by woods, and there is a lake in the woods. We originally agreed to have a barbecue by the lake the next day, but now we can't go.

When the task was assigned just now, I originally planned to go to the outside to look for him, but Xu Wen stepped forward and recommended herself, pulling Chen Wei and walking out. Zhou Yue went out feeling uneasy.

Now Li Yue and I were the only ones left in the house. We went directly to the second floor. Since arriving here, I have never been to the second floor.

There are four rooms on this floor. In addition to three bedrooms, there is also a locked room that seems to be a utility room.

"Li Yue, which room was the window sill you were hiding in?" I asked. Li Yue's words last night were still fresh in my mind. This was not a simple fall, but a murder.

Li Yue took me into a room. There was only one suitcase inside, which belonged to Zhou Yue.

"That's it." Li Yue pointed to the window sill.

The curtains were still drawn in front of the windowsill. They were light-colored and quite transparent. The sky outside had cleared up, and the lights were not turned on in the room, but it was quite bright. I walked over and opened the curtain. Li Yue was right, I could indeed see a corner of the large balcony of the master bedroom.

But for some reason I always felt a little strange, "Li Yue, did you turn off the lights when you hid?"

Li Yue stood by the bed without speaking. After hearing my question, she immediately replied: "Yes."

I raised my eyebrows and asked, "Aren't you afraid of the dark? I remember that in the dormitory, no one came back at night, and you would turn on the lamp to sleep when the lights were turned off."

After hearing this, her expression became slightly panicked, and she said incoherently: "I… I remembered wrongly. The room was not completely dark at the time. I… turned on the bedside lamp, but the light was very dim."

As she said that, she immediately ran to the bedside and turned on the light, "Look, this is it."

I took a quick look, and since it was daytime, the light was turned on as if it were not turned on, but this could also mean that the light was indeed very dark.

I smiled and said, "What are you doing? I didn't doubt you. I just said it casually. Don't take it to heart."

Li Yue's face was still a little unnatural, and she smiled weakly: "You looked too serious just now, which made me very nervous."

I walked over and patted her shoulder gently, comforting: "I'm sorry, let's go, let's go see other places."

"You go ahead, I want to go to the bathroom."

"Okay, then I'll go to the master bedroom and have a look. You can find me there later."

Looking at Li Yue coming downstairs, my smile gradually disappeared.

I do doubt Li Yue. The point of doubt is not about whether the lights can be turned on or not, but why she hides in that position.

Although the window sill is covered by a curtain, the curtain is very thin and transparent. As long as there is a little light, you can see someone hiding there.

What's the difference between this and directly telling the other person where to hide?

Unless her purpose is not to play games at all, but… look at that big balcony!

She probably knew something else, but chose to hide it.

When I walked into the master bedroom, I couldn't help but sigh. The layout inside was very… dreamy.

Pink wallpaper, princess bed, white plush carpet, and a display cabinet filled with Barbie dolls… This should be the dream room of most girls when they were young.

Wang Li is considered a rich girl, and she has a bit of a young lady temper, but it's not serious.

She, Li Yue and Xu Wen and I were all in the same dormitory. At first, everyone couldn't stand her character, especially Li Yue. However, the relationship gradually improved later on, and it was Wang Li who set up Xu Wen's boyfriend Chen Wei.

Anyway, after getting in touch with her, I quite like Wang Li's personality. Although she is a bit squeamish and sometimes not very good at talking, she has a simple temper, is reliable in her work, and is really good to her friends.

Maybe it was the influx of too many memories, but looking at this girl's heart-filled room, I felt sad.

There are some photos of her on the dressing table, including those of her childhood. There are several dolls on the bed, and one of them caught my attention.

That doll was half my height, the largest of the dolls in the room, so it looked very awkward.

I walked over and took a closer look at the doll. She was wearing a white princess dress, which looked a bit like a wedding dress at first glance. She was holding a bouquet of flowers in both hands, with a greeting card inserted in the flower.

It says: Happy birthday baby. Signature: Chen Wei.


Why would Chen Wei give this to Wang Li and call her baby?

The date on the card is from last year.

I remember Xu Wen and Chen Wei had been together for almost a year.

Could it be that Chen Wei had been with Wang Li before?

I feel like I have discovered some big secret. Does Xu Wen know?

At this time, there were footsteps outside the corridor, and I subconsciously took out the card and held it tightly in my hand.

I thought Li Yue was back, but after waiting for a long time, no one came in to ask about the ghost pet , and the footsteps disappeared.

You heard that right… No!

The footsteps just now were the sound of high heels, and Li Yue was wearing sneakers!

I felt a pair of eyes staring at me, and turned my head sharply, just to face the doll just now.

She looked at me with a smile on her face, her eyes were dark, and for some reason the more she looked at me, the more eye-catching she was.

I don’t know where I got the courage to reach out and touch the doll and rub her body.

The texture of the fabric was soft and there was no foreign matter inside. I breathed a sigh of relief and laughed at myself whether I had watched too many horror movies.

The sky was still gloomy outside, so I walked towards the large balcony. There were a lot of meats placed on the balcony. I carefully propped myself up on the outside and looked down. The center of the balcony was where Wang Li fell.

The blanket from last night was still there, but half of it had been lifted, and the body inside was no longer there.

This balcony is semi-curved. Looking from the middle position to both sides, you can clearly see the windows of other rooms.

The second room from the right was where Li Yue was hiding. The light-colored curtain on the window sill could still be seen at this time.

I recalled what Li Yue said again in my mind. She said she saw a pair of hands pushing Wang Li down…

I stood at the position where Wang Li fell and looked towards the window sill, and gradually felt a chill.

She lied again!

If it was true, how could she not see who pushed it?

Unless the murderer's hands are two meters long…

We must ask Li Yue why she lied.


The door was pushed open and I looked back, almost screaming at the sight.

A girl in a white dress stood at the door, her hair disheveled, half of her face obscured by the door, her eyes were very white, and she was staring at me.

I froze in place, my heart beating fast.

"Xiao Ran, did you find anything?"

Suddenly someone called me down below, and I turned my head mechanically. It was Zhou Yue.

But I was in no mood to respond to him now. I looked at the door again, and the girl in white disappeared!

"Hey, what's wrong?" Zhou Yue shouted again.

I calmed my breathing and looked at him, "Nothing."

"Let's gather in the living room first, it's going to rain again." Zhou Yue said.

I nodded.

I was scared just now, but now that I think about it, the girl in white actually gave me a familiar feeling.

I walked out and when I passed by the bed, I suddenly stopped and turned to look at the big baby on the bed.

I finally know what that familiar feeling is…

The girl just now was wearing the same clothes as this doll.


Ever since the incident, this house has been filled with weirdness.

I walked quickly to the living room, only to see Zhou Yue and Li Yue.

"Where are Xu Wen and the others?" I asked.

"I don't know, they didn't want me to follow them, so I went to the lake." Zhou Yue complained.

I looked at Li Yue again, and she always looked nervous.

"Li Yue, didn't you say you were going to the bathroom? Why haven't you come back yet?" My voice was a little cold. Since I knew she was lying to me, I feel strange looking at her now.

"Ah. Me. I felt a little uncomfortable, so I went back and lay down for a while." Her eyes were wandering and her words were stumbling.

I'm not going to question her now, Zhou Yue is still here.

It started to thunder again outside. We sat on the sofa and were speechless for a while. There was still no signal on the mobile phone. About half an hour later, Xu Wen and the others still hadn't come back.

"Will they escape?" Zhou Yue said solemnly, "Don't you think Xu Wen and the others are acting strange today? Their bags are so stuffed."

I actually had a premonition that Xu Wen insisted on searching the outside with Chen Wei in the morning, and she was the first to suggest going home last night.

From this point of view, they are almost inseparable.

"What should we do? Should we continue to stay here?" Li Yue asked quickly.

Zhou Yue and I were silent and didn't speak. After a long time, I raised my head and asked Zhou Yue, "Did you find anything outside?"

Zhou Yue shook his head, "I searched in the nearby woods and found nothing. I also checked the soil and found nothing strange."

"Can you tell me how you discovered the body was missing this morning?"

Zhou Yue recalled it for a while and said with a troubled expression: "I couldn't sleep at night. There was a lot of rain outside. I thought that Wang Li was alone there, so I wanted to go see her, but I found that she was not there."

"Do you remember what time it was?"

"It's about six o'clock. I looked at the time when I got up."

"Has that blanket been turned over when you went there?"

I felt like a policeman interrogating me. Li Yue glanced at me from time to time, while Zhou Yue was immersed in memories. He said, "Well, just like now, after I saw that the body was gone, I didn't dare to touch anything else. I just looked around."

The counting sounds at night and the disappearing bodies are easy to connect, but this thing is too bizarre.

And the girl in white just now…who is she?

I feel like my mind is in a mess right now.

At this time, the door was suddenly pushed open with great force, and Chen Wei and Xu Wen rushed in from the outside in a state of embarrassment, both of them looking very bad.

"What's going on?" I asked immediately.

Chen Wei quickly closed the door and locked it. He was panting and repeated with dull eyes: "There is a ghost… there is a ghost!"

"What the hell?" Zhou Yue frowned and said, "Don't scare people."

Xu Wen's face turned pale, she sat weakly on the ground and said:

"We walked down the mountain, but before we went far, we saw a woman hanging from a tree!"

"Are you sure you read that correctly?" I doubted. After all, the sky outside was gloomy and the light in the woods must be even dimmer.

This time it was Chen Wei who spoke: "She was scared, so I stepped forward to take a look, but who knew that the woman suddenly opened her eyes, and I immediately pulled Xu Wen and ran away."

Open your eyes? This is too evil…

"What are the characteristics of that woman?" I asked again.

Chen Wei composed himself and said quietly: "Long black hair, wearing a white skirt."


The sound of rain became louder and louder, and except for the living room, the rest of the house was dark.

Everyone was sitting on the sofa in silence, the same scene as in the morning, except that their faces were worse than in the morning.

I had a headache, closed my eyes and meditated, white skirt…

Chen Wei's description was similar to the girl in white seen on the second floor, I even thought it was her.

I briefly looked at the girl. Although I only saw half of her face, I felt that she was about the same age as us, and my intuition told me that she was a real person.

But how to explain what Chen Wei saw?

I held my forehead. I didn't expect that a simple birthday party would turn out like this. Wang Li originally wanted to get together at home. If Xu Wen hadn't suggested coming here, how could these troubles have happened.

Wait, Xu Wen suggested?

I opened my eyes suddenly. How did Xu Wen know that Wang Li's family also had a mountain villa?

It is a public fact that Wang Li's family is rich, but she never told us the specific situation of her family in the dormitory, including her parents' jobs. We only knew that her family was engaged in economics and trade, and I walked with her in the dormitory. Recently, I didn’t even know, but Xu Wen actually knew?

I recalled carefully that the six of us had a dinner together the day before the holiday to discuss Wang Li’s birthday arrangements.

Wang Li said at that time that when she came to her home, her parents often traveled on business and there was a nanny at home to take care of her.

But Xu Wen suddenly said that she wanted to go out and spend the night, and somehow she mentioned this mountain villa. At that time, everyone thought it was good, and then we started to discuss it excitedly. I also followed suit and ignored this doubt.

Only now did I realize it, and I looked at Xu Wen with somewhat complicated eyes. She had not yet recovered from the shock, and was staring at the coffee table with dull eyes.

I glanced at Chen Wei again. He and Xu Wen were sitting with a distance between them, frowning in deep thought.

By the way, Chen Wei! That doll!

The doll that Chen Wei gave to Wang Li was placed in this villa. We were not that close on Wang Li's birthday last year, so we didn't get together. Did Wang Li bring Chen Wei here alone that time?

After all, if such a big doll was given somewhere else, Wang Li probably wouldn't go out of her way to move it here.

Thinking about it this way, besides Xu Wen, there are also Chen Wei, or… just Chen Wei?

At this time, Li Yue said softly: "Should we eat something first?"

I looked at the time and it was already two o'clock in the afternoon. I had consumed too much energy last night and hadn't eaten anything in the morning. When Li Yue mentioned it, I felt hungry too.

"I have no appetite." Xu Wen said.

"There are leftover cakes from yesterday in the refrigerator in the kitchen," Zhou Yue slowly stood up, "I'll get them over. Let's all have something to eat."

"I'll come with you." Li Yue also stood up and walked to the kitchen.

After a while, I only heard: "Ah ah ah!" It was Li Yue's cry.

I immediately stood up and went over, "What's wrong?"

Li Yue shrank on the ground, and Zhou Yue looked ugly. Both of them were looking at the refrigerator. I looked over…

This is a double-door refrigerator with a lot of space, but it's a bit miserable inside at this time.

Because I planned to have a barbecue the next day, I brought a lot of fresh meat with me and kept it in the refrigerator. At this time, the bags containing the meat were dilapidated and the meat was cut into small pieces and scattered everywhere in the refrigerator. Some of it is mixed with blood, and the overall scene is very eye-catching.

I was also shocked, and my body seemed to be frozen, frozen in place.

Chen Wei also walked in. Xu Wen stood at the door and did not dare to come over.

"This…can't be…" Li Yue's fingers pointed inwards tremblingly, with a horrified look on her face. The last few words lingered on her lips and she couldn't say them out.

I knew what she wanted to say.

"No." I objected with a firm tone, "This is just ordinary pork, don't think too much about it."

Li Yue took back her hand and her mood calmed down a bit.

"What's going on? Why does the meat become like this?" Chen Wei said behind me.

I took a deep breath and planned to get closer to observe. Zhou Yue suddenly pulled my sleeve and said, "I'll do it."

I nodded. Although I knew it was pork, I still felt scared when I looked at it.

Zhou Yue rolled up his sleeves, looked closer, and then pulled out one of the broken plastic bags. The remaining blood inside dripped onto the ground. I subconsciously stood further away.

Zhou Yue put it on the counter, looked at it carefully and said, "This bag seems to have been torn by brute force."

Chen Wei and I also stepped forward to take a look. The bags we put meat in were all knotted. At this time, the knot was still intact. Looking at other breaks, the edges were irregular. This look reminded me of home. My cat sometimes eats things in the bag, and the bite marks are very similar to this one.

Who arranged this?

I feel that we have been following a carefully arranged plan since we planned to come to this villa.


In the end, everyone managed to survive with the remaining snacks.

"The car will arrive tomorrow afternoon, what should we do now?" Li Yue asked.

"Tell the truth." Zhou Yue smiled sarcastically, "I didn't do it anyway."

As soon as the words came out, the atmosphere was a little tense. Everyone looked at each other, but no one refuted this time.

Since the corpse disappeared, and various strange things happened, everyone has already assumed that Wang Li's death was not an accident. Although they did not clarify it clearly, they also became suspicious of each other.

"Do you have cell phone signal?" I asked.

They took out their phones, looked at them, and shook their heads.

"Not even outside during the day?" I asked again.

When I searched during the day, I tried several times, but nothing happened. I feel this is not caused by the weather but by humans.

There should be a signal jammer in this house, although none have been found yet.

"I forgot to try. I was focused on finding the body." Zhou Yue said apologetically.

I looked at Xu Wen and the others. They were originally planning to escape, so they must be looking at the navigation on their mobile phones.

Xu Wen was a little embarrassed for a moment. She looked at Chen Wei aside and hesitated to speak.

Chen Wei didn't look at her and said directly: "We also forgot, we were anxious to find a way out."

I stared into his eyes, and he looked directly at me, unabashedly.

After a few seconds, I smiled and looked at the others, "That means there is a signal outside. I suggest we go out and call the police now."

"It's so late now, and the rain is so heavy…" Li Yue muttered quietly.

"It's okay." I said coldly, "Don't you want to call the police?"

Li Yue smiled awkwardly, shook his head and said, "Of course not, but. But how can we explain it?"

I glanced at them one by one and said in a deep voice: "We all fell into a misunderstanding before. We were afraid of being suspected because the body was missing. But if you think about it carefully, it would be the stupidest thing not to call the police. What happened today must have been caused by someone." It was done on purpose, we cannot passively let him do it.”

The atmosphere fell silent again. After a while, Zhou Yue said, "I agree. I will go out with you to make phone calls."

I smiled at him and nodded, then looked at the others.

Xu Wen and Li Yue looked at each other and nodded in agreement, while Chen Wei kept an expression on his face and played with the corners of his clothes with his fingers, not knowing what to think about.

Xu Wen was still worried about going out during the day and didn't dare to go out. Li Yue didn't want to go out either, so it was only Zhou Yue and I who had no choice but to go.

Zhou Yue held a big umbrella behind me, and I turned on my phone to look for a signal.

"Can the police come tonight?" he asked.

"As long as there are no problems on the mountain roads, it will definitely happen."

We walked out of the big iron gate outside the villa. In front of us were the dark woods, with strong winds blowing and whining from time to time.

"Hey! There's a signal!" I said excitedly when I saw two bars of signal suddenly popping up on my phone.

"I'm sorry." Zhou Yue's cold voice came from behind me.

I suddenly felt a sense of danger, followed by a strong pain in the back of my head.

Before losing consciousness, I covered my head and turned my head with difficulty. Zhou Yue held up a wooden stick and looked at me indifferently.


When I woke up again, I was still dizzy. I didn't expect that I was not dead.

"She's awake!" a girl suddenly shouted loudly.

I gradually became more conscious, and the voice just now was Li Yue.

What's going on? Where is Zhou Yue? I moved and found myself tied to the bed in the room.

Just as I was thinking about it, I saw Zhou Yue walking in, along with others, who looked at me with complicated expressions.

"Shen Ran, I didn't expect it to be you!" Xu Wen pointed at me and scolded.

I looked confused, "What?"

"Stop pretending, we already know. Where did you hide Wang Li's body?"

"What do you mean?" I glared at her, then turned to Zhou Yue, "What did you say?"

Zhou Yue looked innocent, "I'm sorry, I can't hide it anymore, even if you are my friend."

"Zhou Yue said he found your earrings in the grass where Wang Li was lying." Xu Wen said angrily.

"I found it in the morning, but I didn't know who it was at the time, so I didn't say anything. Later I met Li Yue and said it was yours. I still couldn't believe it. Plus, you said you called the police just now, so I thought you might have made a mistake. , I misunderstood you, but I didn’t expect you to bring a knife and want to kill me. Fortunately, I reacted quickly.”

After Zhou Yue spoke, his tone became excited, just like the real thing.

I couldn't help but laugh and said, "It's really a pity that you don't act. It was obviously you who beat me."

"I'm sorry, I was defending myself, and my hand was scratched by you." He raised his right arm and put a piece of gauze there.

Looking at Zhou Yue's calm expression, I knew that it would be useless for me to say anything on this matter. He had already made up a perfect set of words.

I turned to Li Yue, "We haven't slept since we heard the counting sound last night. You know best when I go out."

Li Yue's eyes were a little evasive, "I don't know, I fell asleep in the middle of the night."

I looked at her puzzled, why did Li Yue lie too?

I sighed in admiration: "Why should I hide the body? I didn't push the body."

"That's not necessarily true," Xu Wen sneered, "Think about it this way, everyone was hiding on the second floor, and you were alone on the first floor. Isn't that weird?"

I laughed out loud, "Sister, Wang Li fell from upstairs. I heard your shout just after she fell. You also saw me coming up from downstairs with your own eyes. Can I fly?"

Xu Wen was speechless for a moment and said hesitantly, "Who. Who knows how you did it."

"Okay, it's too late now. Let's go back first. She is tied up and can't run away. We will call the police until tomorrow morning." Zhou Yue appealed.

They walked out one after another. Chen Wei had been silent just now. When he left now, he looked back at me. I don't know if it was an illusion, but I seemed to see pity in his eyes.

Zhou Yue walked out last and locked the door.

The environment suddenly became quiet.

Nothing I say now will help, no one will believe me. After all, of those four people, two colluded to lie, one followed suit, and the other had an unknown attitude.

He could only wait for the police to come, but did he really call the police?


I calmed down. Zhou Yue would definitely not hand me over to the police, otherwise the flaw would be discovered during the investigation.

But he didn't kill me, so what was the purpose of leaving me here?

And why did Li Yue help him lie? Have they always been together?

I don't think it's over yet…

I looked around and saw that there was no tool that could be used. The rope was tied quite tightly.

It's completely dark outside, my phone isn't there, and I don't know what time it is.

I squinted my eyes and leaned against the bedside. I don't know how long it had passed before I heard a faint sound coming from outside.

"16, 15, 14. "

I opened my eyes suddenly, and it was the counting sound from last night again!

"10, 9, 8…"

I struggled and fell to the ground, trudging towards the door.

"3, 2, 1. Are you hiding? I'm coming to find you!"

When I reached the door, the sound disappeared and there were footsteps coming towards me.

I calmed my breathing and leaned against the door to listen.

The footsteps stopped at the door.

"Are you hiding? I'm coming to find you!"

The voice was just across the door from me, as if it was speaking directly to my ears.

I subconsciously stepped back, my heart beating faster.

In fact, I really want to open the door and see who is causing trouble again, but now my body is restrained.

After a while, the sound of footsteps was heard again, but going somewhere else.

I accidentally knocked my head when I got out of bed, and the wound started to hurt again. I leaned weakly against the door.

It was quiet outside until:


A scream resounded throughout the room, and it was unclear whether it was Li Yue or Xu Wen.

"Don't come over, don't come over!"

It was Xu Wen. She ran downstairs in despair.


She kept shouting, desperation in her voice.

It's strange, why is there no movement from the others?

"Qingqing, I was wrong! Please, please let me go, I was wrong!"


Who is this?

I heard Xu Wen seem to open the door, and then the sound disappeared.



I muttered the name silently, and kept searching for information about this person in my mind, but found nothing.

Just when I was at my wits' end, footsteps came from outside the door again.

"Who?" I asked directly.

The man didn't answer, but stuffed something through the gap under the door.

After groping for a while, I discovered that it was a blade with a layer of paper wrapped on it.

Are you asking me to untie you?

Although I didn't know what this person meant, I decided to untie the rope first. After all, it was really uncomfortable to tie this thing for a long time.

After a lot of fussing, I finally cut it open.

I quickly stood up and shook off the rope, then immediately walked to the door and pressed the door handle.

As expected, the door remained locked.

This person gave me the knife, but he didn't give me the key. Isn't this a contradiction?

I looked at the closed window. This window could only be opened halfway, and there was a security bar outside the window, making it impossible to get out.

At this time, I suddenly glanced at the piece of paper wrapped with the blade on the ground, and picked it up based on intuition.

There is indeed writing on it!

I quickly turned on the light, but unexpectedly there was a power outage.

The power outage happened just in time…

In desperation, I had to take out my mobile phone, which had low battery. Against the light of the screen, the words on the paper appeared clearly.

Above is a line of shocking red letters.

[Find the key and get out of here! ]

Is this letting me escape?

Things are getting weirder.

Where has Xu Wen gone?

There was such a loud movement just now, why didn't you hear other people's voices?

Who gave me this paper?

Does he know I was wronged?

Or is this also a game?

Too many questions popped up in my mind. After thinking for a while, I decided to leave the room first.

According to the clues on the paper, the key is in the room.

I looked around. I haven't opened any cabinets here since I moved in. After all, this is someone else's house.

The room was all arranged by Wang Li. I remembered that when she opened the door to this room, she sighed and said "I miss you so much". I don't know what she was missing.

I started searching around. The closet was full of empty hangers, nothing special.

Next is the bedside table.

Is this…a picture frame?

I picked it up gently and wiped away the dust on it.

The photo shows three little girls, and the location seems to be at the gate of an amusement park.

There is a date written on the lower right corner of the photo. After all, it was taken on Children's Day twelve years ago.

I looked carefully and saw that the little girl in the middle was wearing a pink princess dress and had a bright smile. I could tell at a glance that she was Wang Li.

The one on the right wearing a yellow skirt looked familiar, but I couldn’t remember who it was.

Wang Li and I only met in college, and I didn’t know anything about her past, including her other friends.

I keep staring at the girl on the right. Who is she?

Wait, this can't be…Xu Wen, right?

I couldn't believe it, so I took a closer look and found that her features did indeed look like Xu Wen's, but if they had known each other so long, why did they pretend to be strangers.

I opened the back of the frame to see if there were any clues.

As expected, there was a sentence written behind the photo:
