Live At The Murder Scene - Chapter 16
Translated by Nyx
The night became so serene and pitch black in her view that it felt like it was an endless abyss which swallowed everything around her, leaving no hint of light.
All sorts of weird ideas flooded her mind, clouding her sense of vision and hearing.
The feeling she hated the most, the feeling of losing control, had reappeared.
In the darkness, Qiong Cang licked her lips, suppressed her emotions and waited for the illusion of stiffness on her body to pass without showing any abnormal behavior.
“Oh my, what the hell is that sound?” The girl on the bed shouted, “Dongyan, it’s the place you are at. Climb over and take a look.”
“Isn’t it a ghost?”
“I think it might be a mouse.”

Someone laughed with a deep voice: “What ghost can there be in our dorm? If there were, it could only be Nansong. Everyone is family, why would she come out to scare people. Right Dongyan?”
The conversations of her roommates made Qiong Cang come back to her senses and she blinked her eyes vigorously.
“From a scientific point of view,” she said in a cool tone, “as long as you leave it alone, it won’t come to you.”
Everyone was stunned: “Huh?”
A girl asked: “What kind of science is this?”
“Pseudo-science.” Qiong Cang’s voice became more and more gentle, “It’s like someone believes that there are ghosts in this world.”
They were choked by her words and stopped for a while.
At this time, the light outside the window suddenly changed color. From the original yellowish light to red light. After flashing several times, it disappeared completely.
After the horrifying change, several girls took a deep breath and wanted to scream. However, because Qiong Cang on the other side was too quiet and did not show any response, their act could not continue naturally. In the end, only a few insincere syllables were abruptly pronounced.
An awkward atmosphere filled the air and the sound of pointless arguing shattered the frightening scene just now.
Qiong Cang found her roommate’s actions annoying as well as laughable at the same time.
She perceived from the corner of her eye and finally noticed the suicide progress on the character panel, which had surged from 87% to 92% in a short period of time. The highest value reached 95%, then quickly dropped and now it was constantly fluctuating.
Okay. Now she knew why Wang Dongyan bought that guy’s spirit-cleansing talisman.
The girl on the other bed was not at ease for a while and then shouted: “Hey, Dongyan, Dongyan! Listen to me!”
Qiong Cang turned sideways.
The other party suddenly turned on the flashlight, shining upwards on her disheveled face.
The girl raised her head, her face interlaced with light and shadow. She said: “How about we play a *Black and White game with our hands? Whoever loses will go out to have a look, how about it?”
The other two responded quickly.
“Dongyan, since you said you are not afraid of ghosts, do you agree?”
Qiong Cang motionlessly stared at the girl.
Qiong Cang did not deliberately create a frightening ambience. However, at the moment, she had a pale complexion and her expression was very haggard. Her lips were almost bloodless. Under her gloomy eyes, the other girl immediately got terrified and gave in under.
Qiong Can opened the quilt and sat up. Some of them were surprised at her boldness and thought that she was really going out.
But Qiong Cang didn’t get up as expected. She put her hands on her knees and assumed a sitting posture. She adjusted her tone and said calmly: “Should you choose someone? The Black and White game is not fair. If you have already colluded in advance, then the probability of picking me out is 100%.”
The girl raised her voice: “What do you mean?”
“It means that I don’t trust you, can’t you understand it? Who are you trying to fool?” Qiong Cang sneered, “If you really want to choose someone, split into groups and take turns. Two pairs facing each other each time, one play each. Winner gets points, the loser loses points, no points for a tie. How about it? You can discuss how to cheat, so that I have a greater possibility of getting low points. This is the simplicity of the third year of high school—knowledge—isn’t it difficult? I can suffer a little, and it will be counted as compensation for your IQ. But if anyone goes out, see if I will still let you in tonight.”
They couldn’t tell in Qiong Cang’s tone that she was angry, but no one doubted the threat inside.
She was absolutely serious.
No one spoke up. The three of them seemed to be stunned by her sudden outburst.
Qiong Cang asked patiently: “I don’t want to go, do you?”
Qiong Cang: “If no one wants to go, then rest a bit and don’t pretend to be fools.”
She walked to the end of the bed, fumbled for a while under the mattress and pulled out a small tape recorder. When she got the device, the switch was remotely pressed to stop.
The dormitory finally returned to silence and only a few were breathing nervously.
There seemed to be a cool breeze blowing in from the gap in the window making everyone’s skin feel cold.
Qiong Cang squeezed the device with her fingers, raised her arm, and smashed it directly towards the opposite bed.
Something hit the wall with a loud noise, and it broke into pieces due to the impact. It’s parts rebounded in all directions and then scattered on the ground.
There was a scream. The girl in the bed opposite freaked out and panicked, then quickly realized that the lights had been turned off all along and quickly swallowed the rest of the sound. She covered her mouth with the bedding and gasped in embarrassment shortly.
Qiong Cang brushed the unwarranted dust on her hands: “If anyone dares next time, for whatever reason, I must let her smell the toilet drain at close range. Isn’t this more interesting? How’s that?”
The choked voice was a little louder but no one dared to speak again.
How nice was it to be able to sleep early? When it’s time to go to bed, you should sleep well. What Huanquan Road are you looking for in the dark?
Qiong Cang pulled up the quilt and laid down again.
