Ⅱ Strange Doctor
In the far west of the county seat, there is a three-story building. But as residents left one by one, only five families remained.
A very special family lives on the first floor. In fact, there is only one person in this household, a single girl, Xiao Yufei. She is a doctor. She comes from a big city, but after graduating from university, she came here voluntarily and worked as a doctor in the only small hospital in the town. Now in his early thirties.
Her face is very white, the kind of pale color that only the dead have, without a trace of blood, but it cannot be denied that she has a convincing temperament that ordinary women do not have. Although the years pass by inadvertently, but It didn't leave any mark on her face at all, but instead gave her the beauty of a mature woman. Everyone who has shaken her hand knows that it is a pair of cold hands that chills people's hearts! But to be honest, she is indeed beautiful, with a kind of ecstatic beauty. But she is very withdrawn and very eccentric. She always wears a white coat, no matter what time of day. What's even more strange is that she rarely leaves here after coming here, as if she suddenly appeared from underneath! Doesn’t she have a home? Where are her parents? People are always secretly speculating. Xiao Yufei almost never talks to her neighbors, and rarely smiles, because no one has seen her smile, and maybe she doesn't smile when she is dreaming.
Whenever she is mentioned, people will shake their heads helplessly, with a bit of fear. She killed the most people in that small hospital! Maybe her medical skills are poor, but she is a talented student in a famous medical school!
The strange thing is that no matter how serious a patient is in her hands, they will get better for a while after her treatment. The original disease completely disappears. The patient is like a normal person, but soon he will surely die. People don't dare to let her get medical treatment now.
Therefore, whenever Xiao Yufei is on duty, the hospital is extremely quiet!
Ⅲ Zi Chou
"Zichou, when will you finish that "Spiritual Void"? We will just say that your novel is outstanding, so you have to hurry up!" The fat editor Ma was urging Ding Zichou again.
"Well, okay, um, come on, come on, I'll finish it in a week!" Zichou dealt with it.
Ding Zichou was a poor scholar who had no talent and was admitted to the city from the countryside. His father passed away early, and it was his mother who worked hard to raise a son and a daughter. Zi Chou was able to live up to his expectations and was admitted to the city. Now alone, my mother and sister live peacefully in the countryside. Because I didn’t have many connections and I wasn’t very flexible, I couldn’t find a satisfactory job after graduating from college. He studied Chinese in college because he liked writing since he was a child. So I found a job in a small magazine and became an editor! That's where he works now.
This small magazine is struggling half-deadly, and the situation is getting worse. In fact, this place is only supported by Zichou. Fortunately, Zichou is not a picky person. He doesn't want to leave here. Their theme is: horror stories.
Zichou has quite a few friends, one of them is Xiao Yufei!
Meeting Xiao Yufei seems to be God's will, because they have the same hobby: collecting coins.
Xiao Yufei's only hobby is this. She collects all kinds of coins, even ghost coins, as if she has her own world among those colorful coins!
Yufei met Zichou at a collectibles market in Fengdu, and it was the only place she was willing to patronize when she went out. Zichou's hobby was not his own, but his father's. The biggest hobby of Zichou's old father was this. The old man's biggest wish before his death was that his collection would not be lost, so the filial Zi Chou began to cultivate his feelings for these things.
The two hit it off immediately and became very interested in collecting when they talked about it. Everyone felt that it was too late to meet each other. To be honest, another factor is also because of Xiao Yufei's beauty and temperament. When Zichou saw Yu Fei for the first time, he told himself that she is the one you want to wait for.
Unknowingly, they have known each other for three years, and Zi Chou felt that except when talking about collections, Xiao Gui would be very interested, and the rest of the time she would say very little. Regarding her life experience, Zichou knew very little, almost nothing. Zi Chou asked her out several times, but without success. All he knew about her was that she came from that mysterious small county, which was as mysterious as her people.
Surprisingly, that day, he received a call from Yu Fei.
"Zi Chou" Actually, Yu Fei's voice was as cold as hers, but it gave off a more pure and pure feeling.
"You know, tomorrow is my birthday, can you… come?"
In fact, Zichou wanted to visit Yu Fei's house for a long time. One reason was to know more about Yu Fei, and the other reason was to learn more about that supposedly mysterious little place, so that he could also increase his own creations. inspiration. There just haven't been any good opportunities.
"Really… I've known him for so long and I didn't know… That… I… will definitely go…" He was so excited that the talkative young man stuttered a bit.
"Okay, I'll pick you up at the station tomorrow…that's it!"
Her words were always so concise and to the point.
Zichou thought silently, with a faint smile on his face.
Ⅳ First meeting
August 17th, tomorrow, is Xiao Yufei’s birthday.
Zichou silently recorded this date in his heart. Very casually, I marked August 17th on the desk calendar.
The two words "Ghost Festival" appeared in front of Zichou.
"Why are you so depressed?" I wondered secretly, and looked at the desk calendar carefully. It was July 15th of the lunar calendar. Yes, that day was the Ghost Festival.
This is it, hey, I should burn paper for my father, I thought to myself.
Zichou slowly leaned back on the comfortable swivel chair.
The shuttle bus to Yinzhaguan runs twice a day. Zichou chose the later train. After hurriedly processing the manuscript during the day, he hurried to the station.
Weather changes are always unexpected. In the evening, the originally sunny sky gave people a surprise, and heavy raindrops fell in a hurry.
There were not many people in the car, most of them were people from Yinzhaguan.
Zi Chou took a seat near the window. The rain has no intention of stopping, and the rain has become much lighter.
Looking at the blurry shadows outside the window, he felt sad for some reason. "It's all caused by the weather." Zi Chou comforted himself, because a date is a wonderful thing, and it shouldn't affect his mood for anything. .
Most of the other passengers in the car had their heads lowered, and even the baby in the arms of the middle-aged woman sitting next to him was quiet and surprisingly honest. But he stared at Zichou in fear, as if he had seen a ghost. That look doesn't look like it comes from an infant! His mother lowered her head, wondering what she was thinking.
Zichou couldn't help but shudder and wrapped himself tightly in his raincoat.
The bumpy car finally stopped. Zichou felt it was so sudden, no, I should say he didn't feel it, as if it was a sudden death.
"Hey, we've arrived at the station, it's time to get off, you!" The driver's hoarse and deep voice cut Zichou's ears like a rusty knife.
Zichou finally broke free from his chaotic thoughts.
"Huh~~~~~~~" Zichou took a deep breath. So he picked up the umbrella, and when he got up to leave, he found that the passengers in the car had disappeared without a trace, without making any sound, and disappeared like ghosts.
Zichou shuddered, shook his head helplessly, and quickly got out of the car.
As soon as Zichou got out of the car, the door was closed and he left with a roar. Holding the umbrella in his hand, it felt like he was thrown into another world.
"You're here!" A familiar, cold voice came from the front.
"Oh, yes, I just got off the bus." Zichou answered the person's words like a conditioned reflex. He knew who the person was. Who else besides her would come to the station at this night and in this weather?
Zichou struggled to focus his vision, but the rain curtain interfered with his vision. It turned out that not far away, there was a white wall. Xiao Yufei was still wearing her white coat, and she was holding a white umbrella!
No wonder Zichou didn't notice her.
"How long have I been waiting? Really, in such horrible weather, I still ask you to pick me up…"
"It doesn't matter, you are my guest, aren't you?"
"Haha, this is a gift for you, happy birthday!" Zichou couldn't wait to push a small box wrapped in colorful wrapping paper to Yufei.
"Thank you, really." Yu Fei's tone was still cold, gentle, and colorless. Although it was a thank you, it was still the same.
"Okay, is your home far away?" Zichou asked.
"It's not far," Yufei said, "but we're not going home now."
"What, not going to your house?" Zichou was very surprised. Is there any special program?
"Go to the hospital." It was still a colorless answer.
"Hospital?" Ding Zichou became even more confused. He found that he had no idea what this woman was thinking. Her way of thinking might be very special.
"It's like this. The hospital gave me a short notice today and asked me to work the night shift. I have no choice but to celebrate my birthday in the hospital. Do you agree?"
"You are on duty alone? How can a hospital do this? How can a female doctor be allowed to work night shift?"
"Oh, that's it. There are so few people in the hospital that we can't queue them up. The security here is very good, and the night shift is because of the emergency. There was an old man who worked the night shift, named Sun Zhong…" There was a strong wind and rain. Interrupting Zichou's hearing "… He has worked in this hospital for more than ten years. He is responsible for calling the doctor for patients at night. However, the day before yesterday, he had a heart attack and died on duty at the hospital. In the room…"
"Oh…" Zichou agreed in a long voice, feeling uncomfortable all over.
The two people walked in tandem. The street lights on the road couldn't keep up their energy at all under the impact of the rain, and they flickered on and off. For some reason, Zichou had a lot to say in his heart, but when he saw Yu Fei and heard her words, he couldn't say anything.
The hospital was small, a two-story building, but it was a new building. "This building was newly built last year." Yufei introduced.
After entering the small building, I saw a long and narrow corridor with only a few dim lights, which was very incongruous with such a new building and felt very awkward.
"The place where I am on duty is on the first floor, which is the emergency room." Yu Fei said: "The yard behind is the old building of the hospital, and it is now a morgue!" Zichou felt a little uncomfortable. When they passed the duty room, Zichou saw an old glass on the table in the duty room. The walls of the cup were covered with rust. He vaguely saw that there was still half a cup of tea! "Maybe this is where the watchman lives?" Zichou thought in his mind.
At this time, Yufei stopped. "We're here, here it is." "Is this the duty room here?" Zichou's heartbeat was a little fast, "Is this the room of Lao Wang who died yesterday?" "Oh, no, it's next door." Yu Fei Pointing to another house number "Emergency Room", "Oh, what, are you scared?" Yu Fei looked at Zichou, "No, no, I just asked casually, let's go in." In fact, when she thought of going in, Spending the night next door to a recently deceased person made Zichou feel uncomfortable. No one will feel comfortable.
After opening the emergency room door, Yufei turned on the light. The walls were white, the incandescent lights, and Yu Fei's pale face made everything look so dazzling. Perhaps because he had just come out of the darkness, his eyes still couldn't adapt, so Zichou closed his eyes.
"What's wrong with you?" Yufei asked as she put away her umbrella.
"Oh, it's okay. My eyes can't adapt to it. It's okay." This time, Zichou saw clearly what the emergency room looked like. Like most emergency rooms he had seen, there was nothing new, but Zichou noticed a box of cakes and two bottles of wine on the table!
"Sit down and have a rest!" Yu Fei took Zichou's umbrella.
Zichou sat down and looked at Yu Fei. A few strands of rain-wet hair spread across her forehead, making Yu Fei look even more charming.
Yufei sat down at the table. "No one has celebrated my birthday for a long time. Really, sometimes I feel very lonely." Yu Fei looked at Zichou and said leisurely, "I will spend it with you every year from now on." "Thank you!" Zichou seemed drunk before he drank anything. Yufei and Zichou chatted and drank slowly.
There were only two empty wine bottles left on the table.
Ⅴ Ye Yu
I don’t know how long it took, but the sound of footsteps gradually receding woke Zichou up. He opened his eyes forcefully and found that Yufei was gone!
Zichou looked at the clock on the wall, it was two o'clock. Feeling a little anxious, he got up and went to find the toilet by himself, but when he was about to go out, he found that Yufei's umbrella was missing! She, where did she go? On such a rainy night! Feelings of surprise and fear came over him at the same time, making him feel a little more awake. So curiosity led Zichou to walk out of the emergency room.
The corridor was still dim, empty, and cold. A gust of wind blew from the other side of the corridor, and Zichou couldn't help but shiver. The sound of thunder and rain came from the corridor very clearly. He looked towards the end of the walk, and it seemed that the door was open. It was the door leading to the backyard! Did Yufei go to the backyard? There's a morgue there! What was she doing there? Maybe it was blown away by the wind, but Zichou was still shocked. He picked up his umbrella and walked towards the door. When passing by the duty room, Zichou felt a pair of eyes staring at him, staring at him!
He couldn't help but turn his head, yes, those were indeed a pair of eyes! Yellow eyes.
To be honest, Zichou is an out-and-out atheist, although he is an author of horror novels. But when encountering such a thing, no one can avoid being shocked, accompanied by a feeling of horror.
Zichou just opened his mouth slightly and took a deep breath involuntarily. But he firmly believed that was an illusion.
Zichou rubbed his eyes. He let out a long breath. It's that teacup! The tea cup reflected the two dim lights in the corridor. If you look at it casually, it looks like two eyes. Zichou unconsciously wiped the sweat from his head with his hands.
"What's wrong with me, am I so suspicious?" He shook his head, obviously dissatisfied with his needless nervousness.
He stepped up and walked towards the open door at the end of the corridor.
When we arrived at the door, a lot of raindrops were blown in, and Zichou opened his umbrella. When he focused his gaze and looked into the rain curtain, his pupils dilated several times in an instant, and he saw the light! There is only a morgue in the backyard. Could this light come from the morgue? "Who is in there?" Zichou asked himself, but he also knew that besides Yu Fei and him, was there anyone else here?
Suddenly, a bright bolt of lightning illuminated the entire night sky, hitting Zichou's frightened heart like a hammer. An overgrown path appeared in front of me leading to the morgue. Zichou felt that it was a road of death, a road to a foreign land!
But Yufei might be in there, I have to go and see. A special mentality made Zi Chou think this way. Curiosity, concern, or love, Zi Chou couldn't tell clearly. Maybe it was mixed with the temptation of exploring horror.
"Boom~`Boom~`" A few muffled thunders came from the Rakshasa ghost image from the rain curtain. The thunder brought a terrifying atmosphere, which made people suffocate. That's the sound from hell.
Zichou found a dilapidated ambulance in the yard, so he ran all the way and hid there. It was closer to the morgue. He never had enough courage to rush to the morgue full of horror.
Suddenly, a cold wind blew out of the morgue! Zichou felt that every bone was numb and he could no longer feel the breath of this world.
My body trembled involuntarily! Zichou wrapped himself tightly in his raincoat, but it seemed to be of no avail.
Because that kind of cold can penetrate all outer clothing and reach your heart!
Zichou had shrunk into a ball. He tried to move his body to a corner of the car where the two windows were intact.
The rain showed no intention of giving in, and the morgue returned to darkness, as silent as death…
A clear sound of "crack" broke the silence in his ears, and Zichou felt that his body seemed to be less cold. He opened his eyes, the white world! Surrounded by white walls, with the white lamp still above her head, Yu Fei, wearing a white coat, fell asleep on the table, with a few broken glass on the ground.
Zichou looked at the clock on the wall. It was already half past three.
"Why did she go to the morgue in the middle of the night last night?" Zichou thought.
"How did I come back?" My mind was full of questions.
He tried to wake Yu Fei up, but Yu Fei seemed to have drunk too much!
Forget it, it's almost dawn anyway, let's ask her again in the morning. Zichou helped Yu Fei to bed and fell asleep on the sofa.
With a very light movement, something was draped on his body, and Zichou opened his eyes. It was Yu Fei, her eyes were red, which was extremely inconsistent with her pale and beautiful face.
"Oh, you're awake? I drank a lot yesterday, and I haven't been this happy for a long time!"
"Oh, really. I really drank a little too much last night." Zichou nodded, stood up, and stretched his arms.
"Yufei, last night…" As the words came to his lips, Zi Chou carefully thought about last night's events. The feeling of fear weighed heavily on him. He really couldn't think of any reasonable reason to explain that a female doctor had died in the middle of the night. Why go to the morgue? Because of this, his strong curiosity prompted him to ask for more information.
"I'm really happy to spend this birthday with you." Yu Fei looked at Zichou.
"Oh, yes, that's good, I'm very happy too. But, there is a problem, last night…"
"Oh, what happened? Was there a patient last night?" Yufei felt a little regretful.
"No…no…there were no patients last night, it was just you…"
"Me? What's wrong with me?" Yu Fei looked at Zichou curiously.
Zichou seemed to feel the biting cold again!
"What did you do in the backyard last night?" Zichou's question seemed weak and weak, and he obviously lacked confidence and could not believe that what he saw was true.
"Last night? Where did I go last night? Weren't we together last night?" Yu Fei frowned!
"Last night you…" Zichou felt a lot guilty when he asked him this, but he still believed in everything he saw!
"What did you do in the backyard last night?" The voice rose a little.
Yu Fei shook her head, but suddenly stretched out her hand towards Zichou!
Zichou Leng was startled by Yu Fei's unprepared actions, and his heart beat wildly, as if his beating heart was blocking his throat. Without even moving, he felt a cold hand on his forehead.
"You don't have a fever, right?" Yu Fei said while touching Zi Chou's forehead.
"Well, it's not very hot."
Last night, Zichou thought about it and suddenly realized that this seemed to be related to some secret. Maybe it was from the hospital, maybe it was Yufei's own. Don't ruin the relationship between the two because of a trivial matter. Besides, I wasn't following you secretly, and they were kind enough to carry you back.
forget it. Zichou said in his heart that even if Yu Fei avoids this matter and doesn't want to be peeped by him, he should just go down the steps.
"Oh, I drank too much last night, and my dream was a mess. Look at me." Zichou covered his eyes unnaturally.
"Oh, it turned out to be a dream!" Yu Fei smiled naturally.
When the two of them walked out of the duty room, doctors were already coming to work one after another. No one greeted Yu Fei, as if they didn't recognize her. It was as if they didn't notice their existence.
Zichou also knew that Yufei was usually reticent and seldom interacted with others, which might be related to Yufei's personality. Zichou gave himself such an explanation. In fact, at this time, Zichou's mind was still groggy. The drink last night was one of the reasons, but the more important reason was the strange thing last night!
Therefore, when he passed by the duty room, he didn't notice that there was an old man with a sallow face and a lean face sitting in front of the desk in the duty room. Holding the teacup covered with tea rust, she stared at him with cold eyes! It's like staring at a dead person!
After leaving the hospital and walking on the dusty road, the sky seemed to be overcast and about to fall. As he walked, Zichou suddenly felt as if a thick iron pestle had pierced his brain. He remembered something!
The female doctor I saw just now also had a pale complexion. Her hair was disheveled. She must have not been moved for a long time. Her joints seemed rusty, her walk was obviously mechanical, and her eyes were glazed over.
No! All the men and women in the hospital are like this, like zombies!
"Yufei…" He was about to ask Yufei who was walking beside him. When his eyes moved to Yufei, Zichou felt that his scalp had completely exploded!
Yu Fei is walking just like that doctor!
I was so groggy just now that I didn't notice anything.
Zichou didn't say anything, his open mouth just froze. He was still walking, and his limbs didn't seem to work well.
In fact, Zichou felt that he was walking like Yu Fei.
Zichou's mind went blank.
Am I in a dream? What I saw, I don’t know.
All I see in front of me is a sky covered with dark clouds, and a road – a dirt road with potholes and ditches on both sides, filled with weeds, like the doctor's hair just now!
At this time, an ambulance roared past Zichou, almost grazing the corner of Zichou's clothes, and a burst of dust flew into the sky. He couldn't help but look towards the car.
It was an old ambulance.
Ah, that old ambulance was the one I took shelter from the rain last night. It was a scrapped one! The windows are almost gone, and one of the wheels is missing. Only the two windows in the rear corners are intact. Zichou's scalp felt numb.
Zichou thought his eyes were dazzled. He raised his eyes and looked, but the car was indeed the one from last night! The only two remaining glass windows are like two ghost eyes looking at Zi Chou!
No, Zichou really saw those two pairs of ghost eyes looking at him. There were two doctors sitting in the car, looking back at Zichou. Their eyes seemed to devour Zichou.
The car drove away, and Zichou was almost collapsed by what happened one after another. He still walked step by step.
The dust raised behind the car blocked Zichou's view.
"Dust!" Didn't it just rain heavily last night? It should be muddy here. Where did the dust come from?
Zichou has some normal thinking and is no longer so panicked.
He looked down at the road under his feet. It was indeed a very dry dirt road, and the potholes in the road were equally dry. It looked like it hadn't rained in a few days.
He couldn't help but look at the drainage ditches on both sides. The weeds were messy, just like the doctor's hair that he saw just now, but just now his mind was very messy and he was not paying attention. This time he noticed that there were a lot of weeds that were about to wither.
Zichou couldn't help but stop. He really couldn't figure it out. Because this is something that cannot be explained by normal thinking.
"Yufei, did it rain last night?"
Yufei couldn't help but stop and looked back at Zichou. A very mysterious expression.
"Are you kidding? It hasn't rained here in a month."
"No, it was raining when I came here yesterday. Have you forgotten? You came to pick me up with an umbrella!" Zichou replied firmly, because he still remembered the scene at the station very clearly last night.
"Look at me, I specially wore a raincoat and boots…" At this point, Zichou stopped talking, as if something was stuck in his throat, because he found that he was wearing his own gray jacket, and Those black leather shoes.
"What's wrong with you? Or are you possessed by some evil spirit? You're just talking nonsense. When I woke up in the morning, I noticed that something was not right with you. You drank too much last night and you haven't sobered up yet?" Yu Fei's pale face It's even more weird and a bit sarcastic.
Zichou was completely confused, and he could no longer give himself an answer. He could find nothing to explain what had happened last night. Yufei's determined expression made him lose the courage to uncover the mystery.
What kind of world is this, I'm dead! This understanding is the most reasonable.
Zichou pinched himself hard. pain! There is still feeling!
"Let's go!" Zi Chou looked downcast.
When Yu Fei looked at Zichou, a strange smile appeared on her face…
No one could be seen on the road, and it became increasingly desolate as we walked. Yesterday, because it was night and rainy, I didn’t care about everything on the road.
The weather became gloomier, and graves gradually came into view. Zichou had forgotten his fear and became more curious.
"Why are there so many graves here?"
"They are already there, isn't it strange?" Yu Fei had a strange smile on her face and looked at Zichou.
Zichou suddenly remembered that today is the day to hand in the manuscript.
Open the phone, there are a lot of text messages inside. It's all gibberish and weird symbols. Zichou deleted them one by one.
He pressed the editor-in-chief's number.
"Beep…beep…" The phone was connected.
"Ka 丶嶶叏氇耄…" A strange man's voice, not the voice of the fat editor-in-chief, said strange words.
"Hey, are you Editor-in-Chief Ma? I am, I am Xiao Ding…"
"Acridine 醵戾薹, 鼼黫…"
"Please, please, are you, editor-in-chief Ma?"
"Qi Chai Yi is a coward, and I am still dying…" I still couldn't understand the words.
However, this time Zichou seemed to understand two words: die!
"Editor Ma, it's me, what are you talking about?"
"You…are…already…dead!" A cold voice.
This time Zichou clearly heard the five words, each word came out so clearly and entered Zichou's ears.
The cell phone fell to the ground silently, and creepy laughter came from time to time. Zichou completely lost control of his legs, so he sat on the ground.
His eyes moved and fell on Yu Fei.
She was still wearing the white dress.
White clothes! That's not a white coat! But wearing filial piety!
Yu Fei looked at Zichou, with strange water rolling in her eyes.
Zichou seemed to understand Yu Fei's silent language.
"Zichou, I'm sorry."
"It's nothing, but there are a lot of things I can't figure out…"
"Let me tell you!" Yu Fei calmed down.
"Actually, I come from another world. This world has always existed. It exists just like your world. It exists in two spaces at the same time. I am dead. What you see is…an illusion! I understand. What?"
"Am I the same as you now?" Zichou asked instead of answering Yu Fei's words.
"Yes, you died too and came to my world. Do you blame me?"
"No. You know, I actually like you very much. This is fine, we can be together forever!" Zichou felt that he was relieved and got rid of all the troubles.
The gloomy dark clouds dispersed, and a bright white light shone on the two people.
Zichou hugged Yu Fei tightly, his face full of happiness…
Ghost House August 22, 2023 [Long Ghost Story] Font:
Introduction Ⅰ It was a dark night in the small town that even the blind could find terrifying. People went to bed early. Perhaps only sleep can make people forget their fear. This small place is called Yinzhaguan. It is a small place that cannot be found on the map. It is located in Sichuan Province and is under the jurisdiction of Fengdu City. It has a small population and is sparsely located in small counties. There is nothing special here, just like thousands of small counties in China.I heard from the old people that there were many families here in the early days.
When someone knocked open Zi Chou's door, it was already August 21, four days later.
Zichou was lying peacefully on the bed. His body was in a strange posture, as if he was holding something, with a strange smile on his face.
