Get To Know Your Ex-Girlfriend - Chapter 14
The Escape 14
Shen Shuiyan’s heart immediately boosted up, she felt that this game would scare people to death even if the ghosts didn’t kill them.
In contrast, she still felt that the previous game was a little more friendly to them, at least there weren’t a bunch of ghosts running out to kill people.
“Go up.” Xin Lan instantly made a judgement, following her instincts, how that door did not look like an exit, and seeing that Wang Wen, who had jumped to his death, was about to climb in, Xin Lan decided it was better to head back.
The two of them went up the stairs again, this time without delay, straight to the third floor.
The lights in the third floor corridor were on, and there stood a figure.
“What took you guys so long to get here, I’ve been waiting for you here for ages.” The teenager’s voice was a little impatient as he turned around to be none other than Teng Lin.
“Waiting for us for what?”
“I have found the exit, we are all at least human, that’s why I am waiting for you here, come on, do you want to go out or not?” Teng Lin urged, waving towards Xin Lan and the girls.
“Don’t go over there, something’s not right.” Shen Shuiyan whispered, holding onto Xin Lan’s hand.
Xin Lan tapped the back of Shen Shuiyan’s hand with her finger and approached little by little.
“Where’s the exit?”
“It’s in here.” Teng Lin pointed to the classroom in front of him.
Xin Lan swept a glance at the classroom, which was locked.
“Come here quickly, what are you guys delaying for?” Seeing that Xin Lan and Shen Shuiyan were still a great distance away, Teng Lin couldn’t help but urge.
Xin Lan stood still and looked coldly at the youngster who was beckoning.
“Come over, why don’t you come over? I’m leaving.”
Xin Lan and Shen Shuiyan still ignored them, and Teng Lin’s expression twisted up.
“I said come over here!”
“Why can’t you walk over here?”
Teng Lin smiled and his expression was a little odd.
He laughed a few times, but the sound of that laugh made people’s heads tingle.
Shen Shuiyan gazed at his feet, which were brightly illuminated by the light.
He had no shadow.
The three people they saw when they came in were all dead, and perhaps there was still a possibility that from the beginning to the end this was not a game for five people, but just for the two of them.
Teng Lin took a step forward, but suddenly fell to the ground.
He stuck to the ground, his body flattening as if it had melted, seemingly just a layer of human skin, softly clinging to the handing, but the features on that layer of skin were still there, eyes rolling, and a weird smile at the corners of his mouth.
To Xin Lan’s eyes, it was as if something that had been three-dimensional had suddenly become flat.
Shen Shuiyan’s other hand was covering her mouth as her stomach gave a twitch.
This scene is really disgusting a little too much, Xin Lan also felt the spicy eyes watching, and a physiological discomfort.
Zero Nine was shivering with the little yellow chicken in his arms, wanting to cry and silently reciting the core socialist values in his heart to protect himself.
“I’m coming over.” The layer of human skin said with a playful smile, moving a little towards Xin Lan and Shen Shuiyan’s direction.
Xin Lan was a little reluctant to do anything for fear of getting her hands dirty.
Shen Shuiyan, on the other hand, was a little dumbfounded by that visual effect, and after calming down, her brain ran fast.
“If it’s really a game that wants people to die, then why is this punishment game set to have a nondescript exit, in order to give hope and then despair?”
From the beginning of the game until now, Shen Shuiyan had projected various possibilities, and she sometimes thought that everything was just an abominable joke, that even if they had all the clues, they might not be able to escape from the horrible campus.
Just like what they were experiencing now.
The human skin on the ground heard Shen Shuiyan’s words and gave another odd smile.
Xin Lan wasn’t afraid, but she was annoyed.
Xin Lan had originally had some Post-War Stress, and after becoming a villain, her personality became more and more ruthless and indifferent. Although she had done a fading of her memories after going out from the mission world, she couldn’t help but become more and more agitated, and sometimes her personality would present two extremes.
Xin Lan felt that the mood she had relieved after beating up Zou Yun Fei was getting irritated again because of this succession of ghosts and monsters.
Teng Lin, who only had a layer of human skin, was getting closer and closer, almost reaching the bottom of Xin Lan’s feet.
Shen Shuiyan took a step back, but did not move Xin Lan.
Xin Lan continued to stand in place, her head slightly bowed.
Her face was expressionless as she locked eyes with the human skin on the ground, her fingers moving unconsciously.
“Tell us the exit, or I’ll stomp on your face.” Xin Lan’s tone was flat, but her look was very serious.
The gliding human skin stiffened, not expecting this reaction from her.
He darted and wrapped himself around Xin Lan’s foot, who shrugged it off and back-stepped at the same time.
She pushed Shen Shuiyan away and her hand darted to grab the human skin on the ground.
The touch in her hand was slippery and had an indescribably disgusting feeling.
The human skin was very flexible and tried to wrap itself around Xin Lan’s body after being grabbed.
How could Xin Lan give him such an opportunity, the bottom of her foot stepped on the part of the human skin face, the other foot stepped on the stomach there, one hand clenched the grasped part tightly, and stretched the human skin apart like a piece of cloth.
The scene of tearing the ghost with his bare hands was too shocking, Shen Shuiyan pressed her temples, tonight was really a bit too exciting.
The ghost let out a harsh howl, but the force in Xin Lan’s hand was getting stronger and stronger.
She hadn’t used her full strength before, and she didn’t dare to use her full strength, in case people died, it would be bad, but it was okay for the ghost, it was a dead existence.
In respect of force value, Xin Lan felt that the human skin ghost was not as good as the female ghost on the first floor.
As Xin Lan’s pulling motion became greater and greater, the human skin ghost’s stepped on features became even more distorted.
The whole piece of human skin was extremely resilient and could not normally be torn apart with bare hands. With her other hand, Xin Lan took out a small pair of scissors from her pocket and the cold tip of the knife slid across the human skin.
“Tell me where the exit is, or I’ll cut this skin off of you and turn it into pieces and see how else you can put yourself back together.”
“Uh-uh-uh!” Teng Lin’s mouth was stomped on and he couldn’t speak.
You are actually the Ghost, aren’t you! Psychopath ah ah ah ah ah!
Shen Shuiyan was already a little insensitive from the stimulation, it was good, this was good, it was much better than waiting to die.
“If you don’t say anything, I’ll cut it off.”
Sister you’ve stepped on my mouth! How am I supposed to talk! Boing boing boing boing boing!
“Xin Lan, your foot, it’s stepping on his mouth.” Shen Shuiyan clasped her arms in warning, her eyes complicated.
Xin Lan understood and loosened one foot.
“The exit, the exit is in the door, I’m not lying.”
Xin Lan looked towards the locked door, let go and lifted her foot.
Immediately the human skin slid against the wall, still a little disgusting to look at.
Xin Lan did not know how to pick locks, and apparently neither did Shen Shuiyan.
Xin Lan lifted her long legs and kicked open the door.
Behind the door was not a classroom, but something like a vortex.
Xin Lan looked steadily at the human skin stuck to the wall, which did not understand its meaning and gave an ugly and frightening smile.
“Bye …… bye?” The Human Skin Ghost didn’t know what else Xin Lan wanted, and just now Xin Lan had really cut a bit of his skin when she threatened him.
Xin Lan withdrew his eyes and angled his chin at Shen Shuiyan.
The two stepped into the vortex one after the other, and in the next instant changed to appear on the path outside the boys’ dormitory.
“Coming out.” Shen Shuiyan breathed a sigh of relief when she saw the familiar sight.
“Don’t you think I’m strange?”
Xin Lan looked at Shen Shuiyan, she had clearly broken her character to the point of complete collapse.
When doing a mission, maintaining a character was actually basic, but it wasn’t a very hard requirement, it also divided people into worlds in nature.
For example, in the world she entered now, the original owner was a romantic character, but her emotional intelligence was not high and her personality was a bit high-minded. In the original plot, she was also afraid of shrinking and kept following the original squad, with her ex-boyfriend in mind.
To have Xin Lan maintaining that weepy, scared character is definitely making Xin Lan suffer sh*t.
She can be beautiful, she can be cool, she can be vicious, she can be dark, but she can’t cry, it’s against the will of a soldier.
Better to shed blood than tears.
“You’re different from the Xin Lan I’ve seen and heard before, you’re strong, I do apologize for my previous perception.” Shen Shuiyan did not care if the soul of the person in front of her was still the same as the one before, after experiencing such a bizarre game, it seemed that such a thing as a soul switch did not feel strange.
To her, such a situation was even more beneficial.
If it was the previous one, Shen Shuiyan might not have been willing to team up with her.
But this one, Shen Shuiyan knew that it was she who had ‘climbed higher’.
According to Xin Lan’s strength, she could have gone out on her own.
“I really do prefer to talk to smart people.” Xin Lan chuckled.
A cold breeze brushed her face and soothed all the restlessness in Xin Lan’s heart.
Xin Lan thought that she might have to rest for a few days after this mission, how she could always hold her temper and would have to cultivate her body.
Perhaps it was still the effect of too many previous missions, after all, being a villain was something where you didn’t have to rein in your temper.
But now that she’s changed departments, it’s time to change, she can’t just go up and hit people, she has to at least be reasonable before she hits them.
“Do you have any other clothes?” Xin Lan looked at Shen Shuiyan’s scratched feather jacket and asked with some amusement.
The two times Shen Shuiyan had been with her, Shen Shuiyan’s jacket had suffered a very unfortunate fate.
“I didn’t bring a lot with me, I washed the dirty part of the last one, and I guess that piece didn’t dry in this weather.” Xin Lan looked at her down jacket that was going to be without fabric on both arms and was helpless, she hadn’t brought a lot of clothes as she hadn’t expected such a thing.
“Then wear mine, I still have it in my wardrobe.”
They were both similar in size, so it shouldn’t matter.
Shen Shuiyan glanced at her phone, 22:37 hours.
The hunt was still going on.
“You and I should live in the same dormitory, you’re alone and too far away from me to be safe.”
Naturally happy with this, Shen Shuiyan nodded her head.
When Xin Lan was almost at the dormitory, she remembered one thing and pulled Shen Shuiyan back.
She took out a small card from her pocket and used it silently.
The card disappeared in the air, and at the same time, two pieces of clues fell into her palm.
‘climbed higher’. 高攀 (gāopān): social climbing / to claim connections with people in higher social class
