Chapter 86 - Bunshinsaba&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The icy wind made Xiao Chen’s ankles feel a bit cold.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The crescent moon hung in the sky, there were no stars, and it was deserted. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The alleys are very long and there are no street lights. On this kind of cold night, it is even more frustrating, you can’t see the road ahead at all, and you will start shivering without even knowing where the wind is coming from.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen could even hear the barking of dogs not far away.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;He was not sure if it was an illusion, but he always felt that something was following him.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen stood still many times, looking back, holding the phone in his hand as a torchlight, he gulped, and a thin layer of cold sweat rolled down his temples. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Maybe I’m just overthinking.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;He comforted himself.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“Crack.” A sound.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen’s body trembled and was taken aback. He held the phone and pointed at the source of the sound, pretending to be strong and yelled, “Who? Who’s there?”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;No one answered.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen was cursing silently in his heart, knowing that he shouldn’t have taken this dark path just to take a shortcut.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;He took a deep breath, accelerated his pace, and began to walk forward as if he was hypnotised, swearing to never look back.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;However, as soon as he took two steps, he heard the sound of footsteps coming from behind him, which even blended perfectly with his own. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;There was also a strange sound coming from behind, something similar to the sound made by metal rubbing against the wall. He didn’t know if it’s because of watching too many horror movies, but he felt that this rubbing sound is like a knife scratching the wall.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;After Xiao Chen heard the sound, he paused subconsciously. What’s even weirder was that the moment he stopped, the sound of footsteps also stopped.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen started to stiffen instantly, and quickly walked away, immediately, the sound of footsteps behind him also continued.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen’s footsteps accelerated, and the sound of footsteps behind him was the same as his, adapting to the frequency of his walking, and speeding up together with his steps. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Cold sweat slid down from his forehead, he gulped, without thinking through his brain, completely out of physical instinct, he ran like crazy, as if he was running the 100-meter sprint. Just like there was a scourge behind him, and if he doesn’t run fast enough, he will be eaten.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;What’s more terrifying is that at this moment, Xiao Chen’s cell phone rang very unexpectedly. Suddenly the cell phone rang in the empty alley, with a mysterious feeling.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen wanted to curse even more. Before he could see which annoying person it was, he cut off the phone and rushed forward desperately.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The man behind also ran after him. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen could even hear the sound approaching step by step.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Fuck!&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Fuck!&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen, like a crazy person, thought he was going to see his ancestors because he was going to die. In just one minute, he even thought of the hot headlines in the local newspapers tomorrow. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“A college boy was murdered on his way back to school, and his body was thrown on the street.”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Thankfully the alley wasn’t too long, and Xiao Chen quickly ran to the exit without making a few turns.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Just as he stepped out of the alley, the footsteps behind him stopped too, followed by the sound of something cracking.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen didn’t dare to think too much, the only thought in his mind was to leave this scary place. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;And when he walked out of this alley and rushed into a crowded place, his first thought was to vow that he would never choose to go to this kind of ghostly place where there is not a single person in the middle of the night, just because he was in a hurry..&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen breathed slowly, making sure that there was no danger around, then picked up his phone and checked the call log.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Damn, which idiot was calling him.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Looking at the name on the screen, Xiao Chen couldn’t help but roll his eyes. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Sure enough, it was the idiot in his dormitory.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Darkness is boundless, and danger always lurks in the invisible depths.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;It felt like there was something terrible that was swallowing human blood, and then the air began to be filled with a strong smell of blood.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The black shadow released his hand, and the sturdy man fell directly to the ground with a bang along with the knife in his hand. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The black shadow didn’t care about the man on the ground, staring tightly in the direction of the exit.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;No one knew what he was thinking of, but then he sneered.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“Hey, did you hear that a corpse was found on the Liquan Road not far from our school this morning!”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“Ah? No! Don’t our school often have students walking that path back to school at night? Was it a student from our school!” &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“No, no! How could it be! A middle-aged man!”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“Ah! My goodness! That’s terrible!”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen pricked his ears and listened to the conversation of the person next to him. When he heard that he was on Liquan Road, his face instantly paled, and his eyes were a little hollow.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;His roommate Zheng Hui just bought a few bottles of water from the convenience store and walked back, and put it on Xiao Chen’s table, scared Xiao Chen suddenly stood up from the table, and the bang made the tables and chairs very loud. Everyone looked over with a dazed expression. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Zheng Hui was the most frightened. He didn’t expect Xiao Chen to have such a big reaction. He bounced and stood up, almost hitting his head, causing him to take a step back and sit down. At least he didn’t fell onto the ground.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“…”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“…”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen came back to his senses and sat back in his seat a little embarrassed, the surrounding people then went back to doing their own things. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;But despite this, Xiao Chen’s face was still very upset.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Zheng Hui could tell at a glance that he had something on his mind, so he poked his arm with an elbow, and moved his head close, “What’s wrong, big brother, why do you look so disoriented? Did you see a ghost? Hahaha.”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Zheng Hui didn’t mean anything else, he just wanted to tease Xiao Chen, so that he will be more relaxed. He didn’t expect that as soon as his voice fell, Xiao Chen looked even worse and Zheng Hui realized there was something wrong and frowned, “What’s the matter?”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Before Xiao Chen could answer, the group of gossip girls next to him had continued to trumpet the deadly incident. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“I heard it was a knife, and it was left at the scene?”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“No, I heard that he was sucked dry!”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“Chey, whatever! Anyway, no one would dare to go to Liquan road in the future. ”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;As Zheng Hui listened to the conversation, he slowly then realised what was happening. He immediately widened his eyes, opened his mouth, and grabbed Xiao Chen’s arm with both hands, and said in horror, “Didn’t you tell me that you were walking through Liquan road yesterday? And I even laughed at you last night, for being such a scaredy-cat!” &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen grinned reluctantly, but this laugh looked more ugly than crying, and he replied sheepishly, “Yes, that’s right.”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Zheng Hui was silent for an instant, not daring to say another word.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;No wonder Xiao Chen was so scared just now, if it was him, he would also be scared to death.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Fortunately, nothing happened. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Zheng Hui pat Xiao Chen’s back with his hands, and comforted, “It’s okay, it’s all over, don’t think too much.”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;As soon as he finished saying the sentence, Zheng Hui felt chills, causing him to tremble all over, and his hands fell from Xiao Chen’s body and touched the back of his own neck.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The chill is like someone holding a knife against the back of his head.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Strangely, as soon as he put his hand down, the biting chill disappeared without a trace. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;However, Zheng Hui didn’t take this episode to heart.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“Hey, brothers, do you want to play the Bunshinsaba!”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“Ha”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“Haven’t you all heard of it, it is just asking ghosts to help you by answering your doubts?” &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“Haha, how can there be ghosts in this world? Anyways I’m bored so count me in.”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“Me too! Me too!”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;In just a moment, all the guys in room 404 were playing the game, except for Xiao Chen who was still lost in his own thoughts and Zheng Hui who accompanied him.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen sighed, glanced at the crowd, stood up, and climbed up on his bed with a heavy heart. His bed was on the upper bunk with a curtain. After pulling the curtain, he lay on the bed and continued to think about it. He was the only one who put the curtain on the bed, and people laughed at him for being so feminine when school first started. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Zheng Hui glanced at Xiao Chen who was already in bed, maybe out of boredom, he also joined the Bunshinsaba circle. He didn’t plan to play, he just wanted to see how they planned to do it.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The boys turned off the lights and placed the candles in a circle. They were sitting in the middle of the candles. A pen and a notebook were placed on the ground.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;It was Zhou Keyu who first suggested playing Bunshisaba, the eldest brother in the dormitory. He basically organized all the good activities, so this time is no exception.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;He seemed to have checked a lot of Bunshinsaba information, and looked very skilful, and quickly commanded, “Yes, right, right, let’s hold this pen at the same time, set it up, I will tell you the chant and we will repeat it together later. Got it?” &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Everyone said that they understood, Zhou Keyu nodded in satisfaction, and said, “The chant is Bunshinsaba, Bunshinsaba, I’m your previous life, you’re my past life. If you hear this call, draw a circle on the paper”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Maybe the atmosphere is a bit scary, but everyone’s face was half in the shade and half-lit up by the candlelight. It was so terrifying that the timidest Wang Jiahao in the dormitory wanted to stop playing.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Suddenly he spoke up in the extremely tense atmosphere, and said embarrassedly, “Well, I don’t want to play anymore, can I leave?”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Zhou Keyu was immediately upset, and yelled, “If you are such a coward, why did you even join in the first place? Since we already started, there’s no more backing out, are you even still a man?” &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;No one dared to speak anymore, even if there were still people who wanted not to play, they didn’t dare to speak.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;“Hu”&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Everyone took a deep breath.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Their heartbeats accelerated, and the surroundings were terribly silent. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen lay on the bed, opened his eyes, rolled over, unable to sleep.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;His whole brain was occupied by what the girls said in the day. The more he thought about it, the more frustrated he became.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;He didn’t know if it was because it being the beginning of autumn, he even felt a little cold on the soles of his feet.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The chill first hit the soles of his feet, then spread on his calves, and then slowly moved up… &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen shivered as if his body was being touched by something cold.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;He sat up, hurriedly covering his body with the quilt, and then lay back, but his movements were very light, and he did not disturb the group of people playing Bunshinsaba under the bed.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;He leaned sideways again, facing the wall and stared attentively.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The light from the streetlamp outside the window shone in, hit Xiao Chen’s bed, and reflected on the wall. On the wall, there was an outline of Xiao Chen’s shadow. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Xiao Chen stared at his shadow without blinking, and after a while, tiredness slowly climbed on top of his head, and he closed his eyes.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;He fell asleep.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;After he closed his eyes, Xiao Chen’s shadow on the wall moved without warning, and then he sat up.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Looking at it again, it turned out that Xiao Chen’s shadow was still quietly reflected on the wall, nothing unusual. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;But two shadows split out of thin air on the wall!!&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The split shadow was obviously bigger and stronger than Xiao Chen’s shadow, and even the silhouette of the side face reflected was somewhat different.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The shadow rolled his head, the corners of his mouth moved, as if he was smiling, he tilted his head again, and looked at where Xiao Chen was lying.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The outline of the corners of the mouth twitched even more exaggeratedly. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Hehe, it smells so good.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;No one knew how long it sat there and watched him. Finally, the shadow lay back quietly again, slowly…&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Melting into Xiao Chen’s shadow again.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;At the same time, the boys stared with excitement. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;All of them stared at the thin paper on the ground, and the four people held pens in their hands at the same time.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;For some reason, there was obviously no wind in the room, but the candlelight lit by the candle was swaying from side to side.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Under the shining of the candlelight, the figures of the four people, one by one, all hit the surface of the paper, and they were perfectly crossed together.&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Finally, under the eyes of the boys. &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;The pen!&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Moved!!&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;— &#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;&#lt;p&#gt;Translator’s note: New story arc!! Are y’all excited hehe&#lt;/p&#gt;&#lt;br&#gt;
