Believe It Or Not, I Already Caught You - Chapter 55
“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.”
“Secretly harm you?” Chen Yang looked at Chen Yu nervously.
“I’m fine, but I may not score well in the exam, and I don’t know if I can pass Advanced Maths, which is so difficult.” Chen Yu took the opportunity to shake off the pot of possible failure in Advanced Maths.
“Big Brother, you may not know, but in our metaphysical realm, using magic and spells to harm people is a big taboo, just like…It’s the same as ordinary people breaking the law. It’s just that you can’t find evidence if Celestial Masters use magic tricks to shoot someone in the back.”
In your metaphysical realm? We really aren’t from the same world!!!
“I was furious at that time. I was taking an exam, but he actually plotted against me. I even promised you to do well in the exam, so I got enraged and ran after him to take revenge.” Speaking of this, Chen Yu looked at her elder brother with a guilty conscience and said, “When I was you and Officer Qiu that day, I was just looking for him to settle the score. I didn’t mean not to tell you, but it’s just that ordinary people won’t believe it when I tell them.”
“Am I just…am I just an ordinary person in your eyes?” Reason told Chen Yang that his younger sister was right; that he was indeed an ordinary person, but psychologically, he was still very uncomfortable.
“I…I don’t mean that,” Chen Yu clarified, “After all, you all can not see ghosts, ah. Moreover, the country does not advocate feudal superstition.”
“If I hadn’t chased after you last night and found out about it, would you still have kept it from me?” When Chen Yang said this, he suddenly remembered that he once met Chen Yu in the middle of the night: “When I met you that night, you actually didn’t go to an Internet cafe, nor are addicted to games; you went to deal with your so-called metaphysical business, that is, to catch ghosts, right?”
“Yes.” Chen Yu nodded honestly.
“Over the past few months, without our knowledge, you dealt with…How many times did you go out to catch ghosts?” Chen Yang asked.
“I c-can’t remember.”
“You can’t remember? Has it been so many times that you can no longer count?” The more Chen Yang asked, the angrier he became: “Did you go of your own accord, or are there already so many ghosts and ghouls in the capital that you can run into them at any time?”
“I took the initiative,” Chen Yu answered sheepishly.
“Why on earth are you doing these things? Did the state also give you Celestial Masters assignments?” Chen Yang roared.
“I-I want to build a road.” Chen Yu did not understand why her elder brother was so angry.
“What?” Chen Yang was somewhat lost.
“I want to build a road. I promised my grandfather and the Village Chief when I left Damu Village that I would build a mountain road leading to the city for the village.” Chen Yu looked at Chen Yang aggrievedly. “I’ve told you guys about it before, ah.”
Chen Yang was rendered speechless for a moment. Chen Yu was right. She did tell them about it. She had mentioned it a long time ago. She also asked them how much it would cost to construct a winding mountain highway. Their father also promised his sister to ask a friend from Qingmu Province about road construction there, but he merely never got the exact information
“Are you doing it to earn money?” Chen Yang understood.
“En.” Chen Yu nodded.
“Do you know how much it costs to build a winding mountain road? Do you think you can earn it alone?” Chen Yang, who came to understand, still had a fire in his belly, toward Chen Yu for overestimating her capabilities.
