Thank you Golden Fish again for the coffee! Bonus chapter as promised~

Chapter 67: Ghost’s Bride (3)

Cheng Zhi Chu stared dumbfoundedly at the headless groom for a while. Perhaps because the expression on his face was too obviously stunned, the man raised his hand and touched his severed neck staining his hands with blood in the process. In an alluring voice that also carried a hint of sadness, he said:

“Sorry, did I scare you? I didn’t mean to.”

“………….” Cheng Zhi Chu returned to his senses. He couldn’t help but assess the man before him with a complicated look.

He naturally was scared but to him what was even more scary was “Winter Branch”. After all, the unknown will always be more terrifying.

And more than feeling afraid, more of him was puzzled. Where is the grooms voice coming from? He couldn’t seem to tell……….

“You……….” Cheng Zhi Chu picked up the veil and looked at the man, “You said that you lost your own head?”

“Yes.”

The groom responded. The uneven incision on his neck moved as he said his next words: “I lost of for a while now. Don’t know where it went.”

He hesitated for a few seconds and then added another sentence to make a small excuse for himself.

“As you can see, I don’t have a head now so it is inevitable that my memory will be a little poor. But I have never forgotten about my feelings towards you Zhi Chu, I really do like you……..”

Enough. He doesn’t need those feelings……….

Cheng Zhi Chu’s expression was subtle. He quickly stopped the man’s words and asked: “You can’t tell where your head is?”

“Can’t tell.”

The man spoke while feeling a little wronged: “If you really don’t like me like this, I can take off someone else’s head. Do you have a face in particular that you like?”

“Don’t, don’t.”

Cheng Zhi Chu’s scalp went numb and he quickly waved his hand. Seeing how easily he could say something so gruesome, he deeply understood at this point that the groom was indeed an evil spirit.

【You have encountered a problem.】

【Your groom has lost his head. How will you be able to get his kiss at the wedding ceremony like this?】

【So, before the wedding begins, you have to help him get his head back.】

【Triggered side task: Search for an item.】

【Task content: Find the grooms real head.】

【Task reward: ?】

Hearing that he had triggered a side task, Cheng Zhi Chu couldn’t help but feel relieved. With this task, he could at least be certain that the grooms head still exists, can be found and also has relevant clues hidden in the instance.

The only problem was that he seriously doubted that the groom can still remember the things that had happened before his death. After all, he had even forgotten about where he had left his head so it wouldn’t be surprising if he forgot about the other things.

Of course, even with such concerns Cheng Zhi Chu still had to follow the task instructions and find the head. Thinking this, he said to the groom:

“I have an idea……….Before the wedding starts, I want to help you find your head.”

He hesitated and then added: “Because I still think that I don’t know you well enough…….I don’t even know your name. Also, did we meet before? Why do you like me?”

“You’re willing to help me find my head and would even like to know more about me?”

The groom’s hands that was busy rearranging his clothes stopped and his tone carried a hint of surprise. The bloody stains on his body gradually faded and his suit returned back to its original neat and tidy appearance. It was not known whether the blood had returned back to his body.

“Everything that you want to know, I’ll tell you all about it ——– But on the premise that I still remember it.”

“If I remember correctly, we have met once before but you have no recollection of it so you don’t know about me and I only know you one-sidedly.”

“As for my name and my reason for liking you, I don’t remember it anymore. But all my memories were filled with my feelings for you.”

“Every minute and every second of my time was filled with torment. I was reluctant to die like this and really wanted to see you again, make you return to my side and become my bride.”

“Finally, you put on this ring and even wore a wedding dress for me to reawaken me. I felt it and immediately climbed out of my grave to find you———”

“Wait a minute. Grave?” Cheng Zhi Chu sharply grasped onto this clue, “Do you still remember where your grave is? Maybe you just left your head in the grave.”

Groom: “………….”

Groom: “I don’t seem to remember where my grave is……”

His shoulders trembled slightly, and he turned his body away. He seemingly appeared to be embarrassed to be looked at by Cheng Zhi Chu: “Sorry………”

Cheng Zhi Chu: “…………”

If it wasn’t for his special circumstance, he would have wanted to just curse at the man for having no brains —– But he couldn’t do it. After all, this guy really doesn’t have brains…….

At this moment, the small bear suddenly climbed out from Cheng Zhi Chu’s backpack and fell to the ground. It then climbed up Cheng Zhi Chu’s wedding dress and sat in his arms.

“Pinecone?” Cheng Zhi Chu saw the bear climbing out and couldn’t help but feel a little surprised, “Why did you come out on your own?”

“Mummy, I can help you.”

The bear answered in a very childish voice. Its pair of round beady eyes glanced over at the headless man and revealed a hint of fear, but it endured and said in a small voice:

“I can find his scent and follow his traces back to his grave.”

“Thank you, Pinecone.” Cheng Zhi Chu’s eyes lit up. “If you can help me find his head then you’ll be great help.”

“Why is it calling you ‘mummy’?”

However, unlike Cheng Zhi Chu, the man’s tone became extremely dangerous. As if a storm was brewing, a cold hand gripped strongly onto Cheng Zhi Chu’s wrist. The strength was so great, it felt like his wrist was about to snap.

“Zhi Chu, did you find another man behind my back?”

Cheng Zhi Chu’s expression instantly became pale. He still remembered the message from the instance introduction; not to kiss “Winter Branch” in front of the groom otherwise the groom would go crazy. Just those words alone revealed how possessive the groom is.

He didn’t expect the bears inadvertent words to actually trigger the groom but, once the groom realises that he has another person that he likes, he will be done for. The groom would definitely tear him into pieces!

“N-no…..” He desperately shook his head and said with a stutter, “It’s just……..”

“Just?”

The grooms voice was extremely cold. Despite clearly not having a head and not being able to reveal an angry expression, the bear seemed to feel his dark gaze directed at it. Its entire body trembled, and it wailed:

“Daddy, please don’t get angry at me and mummy……..”

“………..”

The groom was stunned. The hand holding onto Cheng Zhi Chu also loosened significantly.

“Daddy~”

The bear bravely climbed up the grooms arm and pulled at his sleeve. In a spoiled voice, it said: “Mummy and I like you very much. Please don’t be angry…….”

Cheng Zhi Chu: “……………”

“You’re a good child.”

The groom rubbed the bears head. The cold air around him had completely dissipated and he spoke with a voice that carried a hint of a smile: “Good child. Regardless of who your previous father is, from today onwards, I will be your daddy. I’ll take good care of you and Zhi Chu.”

Cheng Zhi Chu: “…………..”

For a moment he had completely forgotten about the fear inside him. His line of sight moved down slightly, and he looked incredulously at the bear who was rolling around in the man’s arms ———- Why are you going around calling everyone daddy?!?

[Do you see its fawning look?]

The silver coin quietly sounded next to his ear. It perhaps still held a grudge towards the bear from back when the bear had stepped onto it.

[It is a teddy bear without life. A low-levelled cursed item. Anyone can become its owner.]

[But I am different. I am very loyal. As long as you use me, I can swear that from now on, I will only have you as my master, and I will never hurt you.]

In fact, it wasn’t like he didn’t understand Pinecone. It is very clever. Seeing that the groom was on the verge of madness, in order to protect itself, it called the groom daddy. It was just a strategic move, yup.

Cheng Zhi Chu turned a deaf ear to the silver coin, and he continued with his thoughts. In fact, when he thought about it now, he is actually a little happy with the bear making him and Bai Yi a pair. But it would have been better if it swapped its way of calling him and Bai Yi.

[…………….]

The silver coin didn’t speak up again. Cheng Zhi Chu saw that the groom was no longer angry and quietly let out a sigh of relief. But at this moment, he received two new notifications from “Winter Branch” on his phone.

[I am almost at your dormitory.]

[Which room number are you in? I can’t confirm your specific location. Please send me another message.]

“Winter Branch” is also coming.

Seeing the contents of the message, Cheng Zhi Chu felt his heart tremble. He didn’t know what the consequence of “Winter Branch” and the groom encountering each other would be but he knew that it wouldn’t be something good.

If they fought here, a good outcome would naturally be when they both become injured but if one party manages to kill the other, everything will be over since he can’t kiss the groom now, and he can’t kiss “Winter Branch” in front of the groom……….and moreover the two of them wouldn’t necessarily kill each other. Only he would be unlucky……….

Cheng Zhi Chu shivered. He naturally didn’t have any intentions to respond to “Winter Branch”. He turned around and said to the groom: “Let’s go out and find you your head.”

“Okay. Thank you, Zhi Chu.”

The groom gently responded and returned the bear to Cheng Zhi Chu. He held his hand and led him to the corridor. With a tone of apology, he said:

“Sorry for going overboard earlier. I don’t want to hurt you but the moment I thought that you have another man and even have given birth to their child, I———”

Cheng Zhi Chu: “…………”

Cheng Zhi Chu: “……..Wait a minute, what are you talking about?”

Cheng Zhi Chu: “What giving birth? Me giving birth?”

The groom stalled. He then raised his hand and pointed at the bear: “………It’s not something you gave birth to?”

Are you crazy??? How can a man have a baby? And who the hell would give birth to a teddy bear?!

Cheng Zhi Chu’s expression was like he was just shocked by lightning. The groom saw this reaction of his and realised that he seemed to have misunderstood something. His shoulders shrank and he said in a small voice:

“Turns out it’s not something you gave birth to. I had thought that it was just a child that looks like its father……..”

“Then………will you give birth to our child?”

“I. Can’t. Give. Birth! Can’t!”

Cheng Zhi Chu’s expression distorted, and he almost yelled this out, but he quickly restrained himself. He was afraid of his attitude triggering the groom again and so he endured and said through gritted teeth:

“Perhaps you have forgotten this common sense, but men can’t have children.”

“………..”

The groom didn’t make a sound, but his shoulders slumped down slightly. He seemed to be a little disappointed. This made Cheng Zhi Chu angry to the point that he felt like he was about to go crazy because of this idiot here.

“It doesn’t matter if we don’t have children. Just having Pinecone is enough.”

The man patted Cheng Zhi Chu’s shoulder and said this in a small voice. Cheng Zhi Chu almost vomited blood. He then quickly remembered that “Winter Branch” was on his way so he quickly led the groom down the stairs.

He wore a wedding dress and walked through the male dormitory building. Along the way, he ran into a lot of people. When he initially ran into someone, he couldn’t help but feel awkward. Rather than feeling worried about losing face because of wearing women’s attire, he was more worried about the headless ghost with him possibly causing panic.

Surprisingly, however, the boys didn’t seem to be able to see them. They passed by as if they were just air.

Despite the people coming and going from the dormitory building and the noise that travelled over to his ears from time to time, it seemed like it was another world, and Cheng Zhi Chu and the groom are separated from it.

“They can’t see us because I don’t want us to be disturbed.”

Seemingly noticing Cheng Zhi Chu’s doubts, the groom explained with a smile in his voice: “You can just take it as us being in another space, a world that belongs to ghosts that just happens to overlap with the world of the living.”

“The living can’t see us. The only ones that can see us are ghosts.” He continued, “I have invited some special guests. They are waiting for the wedding to be held and would witness our marriage……….”

Only ghosts can see them?

Hearing his explanation, Cheng Zhi Chu felt his heart jump. For some reason, he felt a little nervous and his eyes swept across his surroundings.

The only thing that would react to him are ghosts and, that is to say, if a “human” was to walk towards him, it would mean that this “human” must be “Winter Branch”.

He observed the boys that came and went, but everyone turned a blind eye to them and didn’t have any unusual reactions. Even until they walked out of the dormitory, he didn’t find anyone that could possibly be “Winter Branch”.

Could “Winter Branch” not have arrived yet?

Cheng Zhi Chu held onto the phone and he felt a little uneasy. However, just as he walked out of the dormitory, his phone started to vibrate non-stop. One after another, messages were received.

[Who is that man next to you?]

[Who is he?]

[Who?]

[Why are you wearing a wedding dress and walking out with him? What is your relationship?]

[Are you marrying him? Do you like him?]

[Were you planning on meeting me like this?]

[Letting me watch you marry another man?]

[Zhi Chu, you can’t do this to me.]

[You can’t do this to me.]

[You can’t, you can’t, you can’t—–]

“Winter Branch” is here and he’s currently watching him!

Seeing the crazed and twisted array of numbers and characters on his phone, Cheng Zhi Chu felt his whole body grow cold. He quickly looked up but the people around him still appeared to be immersed to their own worlds and didn’t react to him.

He couldn’t find “Winter Branch” at all.

A bloodless hand suddenly covered the back of Cheng Zhi Chu’s hand and it took away the phone.

The groom held the phone and used his other hand to gently brush across Cheng Zhi Chu’s cheek before lifting his jaw. He spoke with a voice that was soft and calm, but it also emanated a terrifying aura.

“Zhi Chu, who is sending you messages?”

“Can I have a look too?”

Bai Yi’s Diary (Part 67)

How could I have had a dream like this……..

Zhi Chu would definitely not fall in love with someone else, and he also won’t marr………

(No longer wants to recall the dream anymore)

    Oh shit! Oh shit! I wanna feel sorry for Zhi Chu here but I’m so excited to see the two bosses fight for him XD He got a fright when Pinecone called him Mummy, then Winter Branch sees him in the wedding dress walking beside the groom (the crazed series of texts was absolutely delicious) and now the groom want to see who is texting Zhi Chu like crazy?

    Again, we will pray for your safety and success, Zhi Chu XD

    Holy Sh*t, tbh if ever i’m CZC I probably would have died already. Also, I feel bad for the joker’s coin maybe he really does have good intention and just want a master who it can serve but at the same time, I also wouldn’t use him ever. My luck is also sh*tty and maybe he really has malicious intentions.

    Running through a corridor in a bloodied wedding dress, hand in hand with your groom who has no head while running from your other love affair is awfully romantic to me. Or maybe I just romanticize everything.
