SEG Chapter 2.14 — The Ninth Nightmare (14)
Night, endless danger.
The three people who temporarily formed an alliance gathered in Su Wan’s living room and were not in the least sleepy.
Time still passed really slowly. Soon, it will be 3 am.
Qi Mu had already changed into a white shirt and black suit. Although he looked like an elite wearing it, his expression was still sloppy. But after finishing this sentence, he suddenly puckered up his brows.
The clock stopped at 3 am and Qi Mu’s phone rang right at this moment.
Looking at the familiar name on the screen, Qi Mu’s face turned a bit gloomy.
“It’s Chen Yu Feng?”
Yi Zi Xuan kept paying attention to Qi Mu’s every move. Seeing his eyes change, he couldn’t help but take the initiative to ask a question.
Qi Mu lightly hummed. He then immediately gave Yi Zi Xuan a profound look and kept curling up to Su Wan who sat on the other corner of the sofa: “This dream space has very strict rules. For example, we will remember the truth after midnight, and those dead ghosts would be have a killing time set for them. For instance, 3 am in the wee hours of morning!”
Midnight, 3rd of the 5 watch periods (2300 – 0100 hrs).
When Su Wan saw the clock hand on the wall stop at 3, bone chilling cold rose from the bottom of her heart.
Once it was 3 am, Chen Yu Feng immediately gave Qi Mu a call. This, what does this mean?
Thinking to here, Su Wan immediately nervously looked at Qi Mu. Qi Mu lazily leaned on the sofa again. He picked up the phone as if nothing happened: “Ah Feng, is something the matter?”
“Qi Mu, where are you? I had a nightmare and I thought of finding you to discuss it with you.”
From the phone call, the sounds of Chen Yu Feng gulping and gasping made it very clear that he still wasn’t back from the dream.
“I’m out right now, you go to my villa in the western suburbs and wait for me. I’ll go back right away.”
As he spoke, without waiting for Chen Yu Feng to respond, Qi Mu already hung up his phone.
He played around with his phone. Qi Mu patted his suit and slowly got up: “Let’s go ba. Go and beat him up.”
“You got something up your sleeve?”
Seeing Qi Mu so calm and collected, Yi Zi Xuan couldn’t help but ask.
“Is there anything I can’t do?”
Speaking till this point, Qi Mu turned around and looked at Su Wan even more deeply: “If Fang Tian Tian is also not a person, Xiao Wan, you must remember to not be softhearted.”
Fang Tian Tian…..
Su Wan’s heart moved. Thinking of her best friend, that girl with tiny courage, she also wouldn’t have any matters now ba?
Why hasn’t that coward contacted her from 12:30 till now?
Su Wan was a little flustered. According to Fang Tian Tian’s nature, once she knew that she was in a strange and dangerous dreamworld, shouldn’t she immediately look for other people for help?
Don’t tell me she truly already was…..
Su Wan didn’t dare to continue with that thought. She could only follow along under Yi Zi Xuan and Qi Mu’s protection. Three people went down the stairs together. Qi Mu’s car still stopped downstairs but the one of the doors on the side was already caved in.
Seeing that car that was damaged, Qi Mu simply helplessly shrugged his shoulders: “I was too anxious when I was coming over and there was a little accident. But you guys can rest assured. My driving skills are absolutely awesome.”
It’s so awesome that you got into a car accident…..
Su Wan kept silent. Actually, she also knew that the car crash wasn’t Qi Mu’s fault. Is it that they were too unlucky?
Not only did he get into a car accident, he was also inexplicably pulled into this nightmare world.
The three people still got onto the car and Qi Mu drove the car, thinking about his villa in the western suburb the whole journey.
At this time, in a high-end residential area in the city centre, Fang Tian Tian wrapped the black windbreaker around her body and blindly followed the person in front of her. The two people took advantage of the night scene to leave the neighborhood. That figure suddenly stopped. Behind him, Fang Tian Tian didn’t expect it and accidentally bumped into him. His body was very cold.
Fang Tian Tian’s face reddened: “Are you alright?”
Qin Lu’s voice was low, the cold air got even colder.
“Your body’s really cold. How about I return the windbreaker to you?”
Fang Tian Tian nervously and shyly wanted to take down the windbreaker draped over her shoulders, but was stopped by Qin Lu: “I’m not cold. You should wear it since your health isn’t good. Let’s take a taxi and go look for Su Wan.”
At the mention of Su Wan, Fang Tian Tian’s eyes brightened. Actually, when she woke up from the nightmare, she had thought of contacting Su Wan, but coincidentally, when she was dialing on her phone, she directly connected the call with Qin Lu.
Perhaps, only in these moments of crisis, you can truly understand your heart….
In the early hours of the morning, the streets were particularly empty. Just when Fang Tian Tian thought they would not get a taxi, a black taxi stopped in front of the two people.
What a strange taxi.
Fang Tian Tian confusedly blinked. Seeing Qin Lu get into the taxi without a word, Fang Tian Tian also followed closely. Once they got onto the taxi, Fang Tian Tian immediately told Su Wan’s address. The black taxi quickly kicked up dust and left……
BLU: What a mysterious taxi. Tbh, I gave up guessing what’s gonna happen. I got lazy~ But what bothers me the most is Su Wan. She’s not her normal self at all. Maybe she’s currently like this because she blocked her memories so that her memories won’t influence the dreamworld or smth? How puzzling.
