Believe It Or Not, I Already Caught You - Chapter 52
Just then, He Qi, who heard Chen Yu’s voice, arrived with a beige down jacket and handed it to Chen Yu, saying, “Miss Chen Yu, you don’t have to worry too much. Young Master Chen came by last night and said he would notify Mayor Chen and Mrs. Chen that you had an emergency last night and went back to school.”
“My brother?” Chen Yu remembered. She seemed to have dropped her down jacket in front of her elder brother last night: “Did my brother say anything else?”
“No,” He Qi shook his head.
Seeing Chen Yu holding her down jacket in a daze, Lou Ming walked to her and said, “Since Chen Yang has explained it for you, you don’t need to hurry home. Let’s have breakfast first.”
“I’m in!” Chen Yu gave it a thought and felt that what Third Brother said made sense. Hence, she greeted Master Mao and sat down on the sofa in the living room.
“Go and prepare breakfast, and bring the medical kit by the way,” Lou Ming instructed He Qi.
“Roger.” In a short while, He Qi brought the medical kit back.
Lou Ming took the medical kit and walked over to Chen Yu, who raised her head in confusion.
“The wound on your forehead needs to be treated,” Lou Ming said.
Chen Yu couldn’t help but lift her hand and touch her forehead, causing her to gasp in pain. Her reaction made Lou Ming frown: “Don’t touch it.”
“Oh.” Chen Yu immediately sat down obediently.
Lou Ming carefully disinfected Chen Yu with iodophor, and then put on the gauze.
Master Mao, who was sitting aside and drinking tea, silently watched the scene. The more he watched, the more serious his expression became.
Not long after the wound was bandaged, Chen Yu smiled sweetly at Lou Ming: “Thank you, Third Brother.”
“Be careful in the future,” Lou Ming couldn’t help but admonish.
“En.” Chen Yu nodded obediently, and then took the big apple on the coffee table and began taking bites on it. While nibbling, she also asked Master Mao nearby, “Master Mao, why does Third Brother’s evil spirit lie dormant around the winter solstice?”
Master Mao shook his head and answered, “I don’t know the exact reason why. I just grasped the pattern through observation.”
“Winter solstice? The winter solstice indicates that winter is coming. The weather will become colder, and animals will hibernate…” Chen Yu frowned, “But none of this seems to have anything to do with evil spirits.”
“I have studied this for a long time, but still can not find the answer. However,…” Master Mao looked at Chen Yu and asked, “Once Lou Ming hibernates, he will fall completely asleep and will sleep until the next beginning of spring. I’m curious. Little Friend Chen, through what method did you wake up Lou Ming last night?”
“Cough!” Lou Ming, who was listening to the two in silence, couldn’t help but to cough awkwardly. When the two looked at him in surprise, Lou Ming calmly interjected, “Breakfast is ready. Let’s go eat first.”
“Mm-hmm.” The moment Chen Yu heard that there was food, she jumped up happily and ran away.
Master Mao glanced at Lou Ming, and the corners of his mouth curled up in a smile. He also followed and walked to the dining room.
Lou Ming awkwardly touched his nose, slowly trailing behind.
After eating breakfast, Master Mao asked again, “I heard Lou Ming say that last night, Little Friend Chen met a tough and powerful malevolent ghost?”
“It’s not a powerful malevolent ghost; it’s a Ghost King,” Chen Yu shook her head and said.
“Ghost King?” Master Mao’s expression changed: “Someone invited the Ghost King of the underworld?”
“It’s not the Underworld’s Ghost King,” Chen Yu explained, “That Ghost King last night was artificially refined.”
“There is a Celestial Master refining a Ghost King?” Master Mao cried incredulously.
