KTCSG – CH72

Chapter 72: Ghost’s Bride (8)

Mr. Mu was the coin’s previous master?

Cheng Zhi Chu was shocked. He didn’t even need to think to know that Mr. Mu was definitely not a simple guy. He founded the game forum for “Infinite Escape” and was probably one of the earliest players of the game.

He had once read the introduction in the forum which mentioned that “Infinite Escape” appeared about six or seven years ago. At that time, Mr. Mu was probably a player already and for some reason attacked Bai Yi.

Elder Li was the internal agent for Mr. Mu. In exchange for Bai Yi, Mr. Mu helped Elder Li change his family’s fate.

If it really is something that they had done……..

Cheng Zhi Chu revealed a look of anger. He glared at the old man in front of him. That originally kindly looking face now looked extremely detestable.

Being interrogated by Bai Xi Xing, Elder Li’s expression changed drastically. His forehead was covered in cold sweat but even if that was the case he still refused to admit it. He continued to insist through gritted teeth: “I don’t know what you are talking about. Who’s Mr. Mu? I don’t know anyone surnamed Mu.”

Bai Xi Xing sneered. Just when he was about to speak, Cheng Zhi Chu suddenly felt that the air around him wasn’t right. It had suddenly become dark and chilly. His heart clenched and he turned around only to see that the groom had strode straight over to Elder Li.

“Thud——–”

Elder Li only felt his throat suddenly tightening. The sharp pain travelled through him and he suddenly became unable to breathe. On his neck, a greenish-blue handprint was visible to the naked eye. His entire body was pushed down and, because the strength was so great, the entire sofa also fell back.

“Coff…….coff!”

Elder Li’s face turned bright red and purple. He could only produce faint coughs from his throat, and he couldn’t say a word.

He felt as if someone was choking him but there was nothing in front. This made him feel particularly horrified. The veins on his forehead bulged and he desperately tried to claw at his own neck only to suddenly feel himself coming in contact with a cold patch of skin.

A pale hand slowly appeared in front of him. This was then followed by the body of a man in a black suit and then the severed neck that was still dripping with fresh blood.

Ghost! A ghost——-!

Seeing the headless man in front of him, Elder Li was petrified. His eyes rolled back revealing the whites of his eyes and he fainted on the spot with white foam spewing out from his mouth. The groom saw this and released his hold of his neck, allowing him to breathe again while in a comatose state.

Bai Xi Xing who stood next to the groom also had his expression change. He took a small step back.

However, at this moment his gaze just happened move aside and fall onto Cheng Zhi Chu who was still looking particularly lovely in the white wedding dress. He couldn’t help but be surprised and he even forgot about the shock from earlier. He stared at Cheng Zhi Chu for a few seconds before belatedly calling out:

“……….Junior Cheng?”

What?

Cheng Zhi Chu stalled for a moment. He looked dumbfoundedly at Bai Xi Xing. Seeing that the other party was also looking at him, and also associated it with Elder Li’s horrified expression before he fainted, he slowly realised that the groom had released his power resulting in the others becoming able to see him!

Oh no! His reputation is ruined now. An acquaintance just witnessed him wearing women’s clothing!

Cheng Zhi Chu’s face instantly flushed red. Even his pale neck was pink. He waved his hand in a panic and said: “Senior, no…..Let me explain……….”

After the initial shock, Bai Xi Xing calmed back down. He glanced over at the headless man standing next to Elder Li and, seeing that the man wasn’t moving, he said calmly: “I understand. You must have a reason for dressing up like this. So, did you come here again this time because of a ghost?”

Having said this, his gaze once again moved over to the groom.

Cheng Zhi Chi recalled that, in the last instance, the system had created some strange memory changes to Bai Xi Xing and the others, causing them to think that he could exorcise ghosts. Bai Xi Xing was probably thinking that he was here to exorcise another ghost.

“Thank you for your understanding, Senior.” Cheng Zhi Chu was relieved. “That’s right, I came here because it is related to a ghost. Also, I heard about Bai Yi’s situation just then. That is…..?”

“It’s a long story.” Bai Xi Xing looked at the passed out old man, and said, “Is he okay? He holds the clues so he can’t die just yet.”

“He’s not dead.”

Seeing Cheng Zhi Chu’s look of inquiry, the groom replied: “Only by letting him feel enough horror, he will speak the truth.”

“Yes, that’s true. No matter how I asked him earlier, he wouldn’t say anything. I almost got physical with him.”

Bai Xi Xing nodded his head: “Just that you probably scared him too much.” He didn’t feel pity for the old man. To even dare plot against his cousin, the Li family won’t be let off easily. He was just afraid of scaring the old man to death and losing their only source of information.

While Elder Li is out cold, Bai Xi Xing and Cheng Zhi Chu sat down and chatted about Mr. Mu.

“Over the past few years I have hired people to investigate about my cousin’s situation but, until now, I didn’t get any information. It was only recently that I got a hold of this icon. It is said that this icon is a symbol for a secret organisation. That organisation is very ruthless. As long as you have money, they are wiling to do anything that you want them to.”

Bai Xi Xing showed Cheng Zhi Chu the icon and frowned while speaking.

“Six years ago, the Li family was on the verge of bankruptcy. They went to find someone from this organisation to help them change their fate, and that person was ‘Mr. Mu’.”

“At that time, the Li family was almost broke. He gave Mr. Mu every last bit of money that they had. In addition to that, Mr. Mu also had another condition. It was for the Li family to help him with something.”

“The investigations didn’t reveal what it was, but I suspect that it is related to my cousin’s disappearance. Later, I received new evidence. On the day my cousin disappeared, this old thing appeared nearby and appeared to be in a hurry. It was very suspicious.”

“I suspect the Li family probably did something, kidnapped my cousin and handed him to Mr. Mu.”

Bai Xi Xing’s expression was dull. His voice was cold like ice.

“The size of this organisation isn’t small. Their methods of doing things are also very ruthless and clean. They seemed to have a special means of erasing all traces of their actions, and their employers are all very tight lipped. It is very difficult finding a breakthrough.”

“My people also took great risks in order to find out about the organisation.”

“We were able to get this information firstly because Mr. Mu seemed to have only just started doing it six years ago, so he was still very new and didn’t manage to clean things up after him well enough.”

“And secondly, because Mr. Mu’s whereabouts have been unclear for the past year or two, internal conflict arose within the organisation. This allowed my people to have the opportunity to investigate. But even if there was conflict, the organisation was still very secretive. It was difficult to investigate any deeper.”

“So, I went to find him.”

The handsome young man crossed his arms and looked down at the old man on the ground coldly.

Cheng Zhi Chu heard this and was shocked. He could acutely tell that this organisation, or at least Mr. Mu, must be a player in the game. They had brought out the cursed items and items from inside the game and were using them in reality, allowing them to make huge profits and even kill humans indiscriminately.

Apart from the dangerous cursed items and weapons, “Infinite Escape” doesn’t limit a player’s ability to use game items in reality. They only emphasized that that others shouldn’t know of the existence of the game.

However, most players would choose not to use the items. The items were mainly used to fight ghosts and they would not be of use in reality. Not to mention, they are very expensive. If they wanted to use them to preserve their lives in the game, they naturally wouldn’t waste it in reality.

After the establishment of “Ultimate Alliance”, president Shen Zhou —–That is, Gu Zhen, ——established a few rules including the fact that players should not use the items in reality. Those who are members of the alliance or those who wish to be members of the alliance were required to strictly follow those rules.

The influence of the alliance was significant. Many players became reluctant to use items in reality, especially since they can potentially put others’ lives in danger and likely be hunted down by members of the alliance.

Cheng Zhi Chu did not hear of Mr. Mu in the forum. But, in retrospect, it really was the case. Although various forums have mentioned the founding time of the forum, they didn’t specifically mention the name of the founder. It was probably because Mr. Mu had deliberately hidden it.

Mr. Mu would hide himself probably because he had done some things in reality that could potentially be linked to his game’s identity. Even his purpose of founding the forum was suspicious. A large part of the members in his organisation were probably roped in through the forum.

But why would Mr. Mu target Bai Yi? If Bai Yi’s disappearance was really related to him and the condition that he had originally proposed to the Li family was to help him take Bai Yi away, what was his purpose of doing that?

Recalling the fact that the silver coin in his backpack was something that Mr. Mu used to own, Cheng Zhi Chu took it out and held it in his hand. He stared at it and asked:

[How much do you know about Mr. Mu? What kind of person is he? What has he done?]

[He is the opposite of you, a very lucky person.]

The coin said.

[For example, if you threw me ten times, the devil’s face will appear ten times to bring you bad luck. For him, he could throw the coin ten times and get the joker side all ten times.]

[Even if I deliberately try to violate his will and try to flip to the devil’s side, accidents would occur like a wind blowing or me bumping into a table that appeared out of nowhere………In short, I would always end up flipping onto the good luck side.]

[It was because of this, although he is very good to me, that I still had to leave him. I don’t like people who are so lucky. In his hands, I am only a slave.]

[So later, I saw you. You are the unluckiest person I have ever seen. I was certain that you would need me, rely on me, but…..]

Having said that, there was strong grievances in the silver coin’s voice.

[I’m in your hands but I’m not even qualified to be a slave…….You don’t even use me!!]

“……….” Cheng Zhi Chu could only respond with silence.

[However, Mr. Mu’s luck wasn’t great initially. His luck was all stolen from others because he has the ability to steal luck and even life.]

[And the way he steals it……..]

[Is to cut off the other person’s head and bury it under his own residence.]

Six years ago, Mr. Mu was not my master. I don’t know whose head he had cut off at that time, but I think your friend probably had excellent luck so Mr. Mu targeted him and cut his head off……..

“Thud———”

Cheng Zhi Chu’s hand trembled violently, and the silver coin fell to the ground.

Bai Yi’s Diary (Part 72)

Two years ago, I met a man in the game.

I don’t know his name, but I was certain that he was the man who had killed me in reality six years ago.

But the result of my second encounter with him was my soul completely shattering.

    Thanks for the chapter! I suspect Bai Yi’s soul shattering might mean that his luck was so great that it messed up Mu’s plans and left BY with a way to return. But this getting interesting…

    At first, my thought about Mr. Mu is “Holy shit! Is he the real protagonist instead of Cheng Zhi Chu? So lucky that he could draw joker 10 times out of 10 times…” But then there he was, cutting someone head just to steal the luck of another person…

    You know earlier I had started to thinK that the reason that no one has cleared the game is because once you get powerful enough you don’t want to leave. So you just keep spending survival points so you don’t have a million. I think I might be right…
