Chapter 39 Peeping

PreviousBack to directoryNext
Looking at the footprints left on the ground, I swallowed nervously. Sister Hong and Chen Jiansheng also looked ugly.

We are being spied on.

What's even more frightening is that I don't know if this thing is a human or a ghost.

In other words, there may not only be the three of us here now. There may be something else.

Fear comes from the unknown. The more we think about it, the more afraid we become, and Chen Jiansheng no longer dares to say anything.

"Chen...Chen Tugong, is it possible that he is in your gang? Are there any dwarf-type disabled people in your gang?" I tried to ask her.

"No," Chen Jiansheng frowned and said, "Except for me and Chen Zhiguo, all the other brothers had accidents before. Besides, there are no such disabled people in our team."

Such a thing happened suddenly, and we didn't dare to rush on our way. The three of us discussed it and agreed to rest where we were for a night to regain our strength.

When we went to bed at night, several of us took turns to keep vigil, but none of us dared to sleep. When it was my turn, my vigil time was from one to three in the morning.

The fire was built by Chen Jiansheng, using fire sticks. There are many things that can be burned here. We collected some rotten and dried branches and wood.

Our temporary resting place was right next to the small mound, because there were relatively few plants in this area.

Watching the fire, about two o'clock in the middle of the night, my eyelids were so sleepy, but now it was my turn to watch the night. I kept telling myself that I couldn't sleep, and I couldn't stand it anymore, so I pinched my thigh hard a few times.


Sister Hong and Chen Jiansheng are asleep now.

After adding two sticks of dry firewood, I still held on, bit by bit.

"Pah," suddenly, the back of my head hurt. I don't know who hit me with a small clod of earth.

Looking at the small clods of soil rolling down under my feet, my sleepiness disappeared without a trace in an instant.

A layer of cold sweat broke out on my back, because I was scared.

In the firelight, I turned my head back little by little to look.

I saw a dwarf standing on the ground thirty meters away from me in front of me.

He was wearing a huge tuck-brimmed hat and a layer of tattered black clothes. The black clothes were covered with dirt and were tattered and old, as if they had been ripped off from a dead person...


"I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming, I must be dreaming," I pinched the tiger's mouth hard, and a burst of pain came.

"Pa," the dwarf threw a clod of soil at me again, but this time he didn't hit me because of his poor accuracy.

I backed away in fear. Little by little, I retreated to Chen Jiansheng's side.

Not daring to speak, I touched Chen Jiansheng, trying to wake him up.

He didn't respond at first, so I felt anxious and pinched him.

"What are you doing, kid? You are sick." I pinched him awake.

I looked at him with a pale face and pointed behind me quietly.

With sleepy eyes, Chen Jiansheng glanced behind me.

Soon, he rubbed his eyes vigorously.

We were face to face and I could see clearly.

His face suddenly turned pale.

Chen Jiansheng lowered his head and said with trembling lips: "Don't say anything, go to sleep, and pretend you didn't see anything." After saying that, he lay down directly on the ground and closed his eyes.

A night of silence.

the next morning.

"You didn't have any rest last night? Why do you look so ugly?" Sister Hong asked.

My face is pale now, and so is Chen Jiansheng's, because we both saw that thing last night.

I have been hesitant and dare not tell Sister Hong about this.

This matter was said by Chen Jiansheng.

After hearing what he said about what happened last night, Sister Hong turned to look at me, frowned and asked, "Yunfeng, is it true?"

I clenched my fists and nodded.

Chen Jiansheng looked around for a moment with a solemn expression. He lowered his voice and said, "I just thought it was strange. The ax I buried before couldn't have grown legs and run away on its own. It must have been something troublesome."

"Have you seen the front face?" Sister Hong asked with a frown.

"No, I didn't see it."

"This thing was wearing a big fold-brimmed hat, and he was also covered in clothes that I didn't know where to get. It was covered so tightly that nothing could be seen." I recalled the scene last night carefully.

Make sure you haven't missed anything.

Afterwards, the three of us conspired for a while and made a secret plan.

I was very scared at first, so I told Sister Hong that we should leave quickly and forget about what this thing was.

Sister Hong shook her head and said that there were many mysteries here, and her intuition told her that she should not just leave like this, but should follow this line to catch on.

During the day, we all tried not to look around, kept our heads down when walking and talking, and did not dare to eat anything else. We only ate the same kind of fruit to satisfy our hunger.

At night, as usual, we lit a fire and no one kept watch. The three of us lay on the ground around the fire and closed our eyes.

However, the difference between this time and last night is that none of us fell asleep. We were all pretending to sleep.

Sister Hong was holding a small dagger, with her palm facing down, covering it with the sleeves of her clothes. What Chen Jiansheng and I hid in our hands was a small piece of sharpened wood, which we pressed with our arms. Nothing could be seen from the outside, but

You can see the three of us sleeping.

Time passed by, and in the second half of the night, because there was no more wood, the fire was already burning very small.

"Papa," something threw a small clod of soil towards us to test.

We pretended to sleep, closed our eyes, and no one moved.

I tightened my grip on the stick hidden under my arm, feeling so scared that I was dying.

A few minutes passed.

"Papa," another small clod of soil was thrown over.

We still slept motionless, no one paid any attention to us.

After about an hour, there were very slight footsteps.

I squinted my eyes, lay on the ground, and peeked carefully.

I saw the dwarf who appeared last night, holding a small stone in his hand, walking towards the fire step by step, twisting left and right.

The way this thing walks is very weird, twisting and turning, like a little old woman.

He walked very slowly and carefully, approaching us little by little.

Afraid of being discovered by this thing, I quickly closed my eyes and stopped looking.

The footsteps are getting closer and closer.

I feel like this thing has come to me.

"Do it!"

Chen Jiansheng jumped up from the ground violently. He shouted loudly, took out a sharpened stick, and raised his hand to stab!

Sister Hong also suddenly stood up, pointed at the dwarf, and stabbed him with a dagger.

"Squeak!" The thing squeaked like a mouse, turned around and tried to run away.

We spent the whole night lying in wait, waiting for now, where would he let him run away. I was the closest, and grabbed the thing's calf, and held on tightly and wouldn't let go.

"Quick! Quick! I caught it!" I shouted desperately.

I grabbed this thing by the leg, and its hair suddenly exploded. It jumped up and down desperately, with so much force that I almost couldn't catch it.

"Pfft," Sister Hong's dagger pierced the dwarf's stomach, and the dagger penetrated completely.

This thing bled a lot, and the blood was red and black.

This thing hurt. He dodged Chen Jiansheng's blow in a dashing way. I felt like my wrist was about to dislocate.

Very quickly, less than a minute.

There was a pop.

The dwarf fell to the ground, with Sister Hong's dagger stuck in his stomach. He was still twitching, and blood was flowing all over the floor.

Seeing this, the three of us looked at each other with pale faces.

We are communicating with our eyes, which probably means...

Someone take off this thing's hat.

See if he is dead.
