Believe It Or Not, I Already Caught You - Chapter 54
Chen Yu left behind her mobile phone in her room. Considering her forehead injury, it would be difficult to explain if she was seen by Mother Chen, so Chen Yu planned to sneak in through the window, take her mobile phone and head back to school. By the time winter break was over, her forehead wound would have healed…
With this thought in mind, Chen Yu climbed the parasol tree behind the house with ease. She lifted her foot and was about to step on the windowsill when she looked up and met her elder brother’s strange gaze.
“Big…Big Brother?” Chen Yu silently retracted her right foot that was about to step on the windowsill. She somewhat awkwardly clung on the tree trunk and did not move.
“…” Chen Yang glanced at his sister’s forehead injury, and then at the tree trunk that was not much thicker than his arm and put down the ruler in his hand. He reached out and pushed the window open: “Come inside first. “
Chen Yu did not expect to be caught on the spot. She was filled with embarrassment, but still moved skillfully when she jumped in.
Seeing his sister’s skilled and lithe movements, Chen Yang suddenly felt that he might have discovered how his sister had hitched a ride with Third Young Master Lou under his nose.
“Big Brother, you…why are you in my room?” Chen Yu was a little surprised. Is it for last night’s matter?
“The glass of your room window suddenly broke, so I’m measuring the size and let someone fix it later,” Chen Yang explained.
“Oh…oh.” With her elder brother’s reminder, Chen Yu then found that her room’s window really had shattered to pieces. She thought for a moment and said, “It must have been broken when the compass flew out of the window yesterday.”
The compass flew out of the window? Is she not going to hide anymore?
Chen Yang took a look at his empty-handed sister and asked, “Where is the compass?”
The compass helped a lot when dealing with that thing last night. But today, Chen Yu surprisingly did not bring the compass back, so Chen Yang could not help but ask with some curiosity.
“I left it at Third Brother’s home,” Chen Yu replied.
“Third Brother?” Chen Yang was momentarily stunned, “Third Young Master Lou?”
“Huh? En!” Chen Yu nodded.
Are they addressing each other intimately now? Chen Yang continued to ask while measuring the size of the window, “Why didn’t you bring it back? And even…leave it at Third Young Master’s house?”
“Last night, the compass’s spirit Qi was depleted. Spirit Qi is denser in Third Brother’s home, so I left it there, so that the compass can absorb spirit qi,” Chen Yu explained.
“Spirit Qi…” Chen Yang never imagined that these terms that were only read in novels really existed.
“En, Third Brother’s house has the densest spirit qi concentration in the entire capital,” Chen Yu said.
“So…you also only got acquainted with Third Young Master Lou because of spirit qi? “Chen Yang guessed.
“Uh? Yeah.” Since Chen Yang had already discovered what happened last night, Chen Yu did not intend to hide it anymore.
Chen Yang took a deep breath, put down the ruler in his hand and took another look at the room’s door that he closed tightly by himself before he asked out loud, “What exactly was that thing last night?”
“It’s a Ghost King, and it was Qi Changming who let him out,” Chen Yu answered.
“Ghost King? Qi Changming?” The moment Chen Yang heard Qi Changming’s name, he immediately inferred the cause and effect of last night’s events: “Qi Changming wants to harm you because of the incident in Fuqing Road that day?”
Fuqing Road was the spot where Chen Yu and Qi Changming fought that day.
“En,” Chen Yu explained further, “I happened to be taking an exam on that day, and halfway through the exam, I suddenly discovered that someone was trying to secretly harm me through a spell.”
