Arc 4: Shocking Orphanage
Chapter 67: Accident
It was now the evening and the sky was dark outside.
Su Min didn’t sense any danger from the young girl. He didn’t know if it was because she liked him.
Su Min asked: “What’s your name?”
The young girl replied tenderly: “Ming Chen.”
Although it sounded a little strange, Su Min felt that it was okay. At the very least, it didn’t give a gloomy feeling like the name Ming Ming.
Su Min asked again, “What dress did you lose?”
There were dozens of rooms just on this side of the building and there would be even more than that if you included the rooms on the other end.
Ming Chen described: “Pink…..with flower petals…….and lots of pretty lace, and a lot of…….”
She couldn’t describe it well and could only say these words.
Su Min took note of these characteristics and took her back to the first floor.
They checked each of the rooms only to see that they couldn’t be opened and once again went back upstairs.
This time, some changes had happened upstairs.
A beautiful dress floated outside the window at the end of the corridor.
There clearly wasn’t anything there before but it had suddenly appeared, so it clearly wasn’t anything normal.
But Ming Chen didn’t find it strange at all. She pointed over and said happily: “That’s my dress.”
Su Min internally found it very strange. He was originally afraid that he wouldn’t be able to find the dress and would end up getting killed by the young girl in a fit of anger.
He said: “You wait here. I’ll bring it over.”
Ming Chen however had already walked over. Before he could react, she climbed up the window and her small, frail body swayed on the edge of the windowsill.
Su Min quickly walked over: “Hurry and get down.”
Although he didn’t know if the girl was a human or a ghost, the feeling she gave him was that she was good-natured, so he wasn’t worried about her at all.
The young girl stood at the edge of the window and she reached out for her dress.
Su Min shouted: “Get down. Ming Chen, be good.”
Before he could finish saying the last word, the young girl had fallen.
Su Min’s heart stopped. He ran over to the window and looked down. There wasn’t anything on the ground. It was empty.
It was as if she had never appeared. She disappeared just like that.
Su Min calmed himself down and walked away from the window.
Chen Su stood next to him.
Su Min turned over and asked, “Do you have a way to save her?”
Chen Su said in a low voice, “I can’t interfere.”
Su Min nodded and said: “If you say that then does it mean that she was destined to die and was only here for the sake of giving me a hint?”
In total, there were only seven children and one was now dead. It was also the one that was friendliest to him.
Of the remaining six children, he had seen three of them. From the beginning to end, he still had not seen the other three.
As he thought this, Yan Jing Cai and Xu Yixiang suddenly appeared by the stairs.
Yan Jing Cai asked: “Su Min, what are you doing there?”
Su Min hesitated for a moment and decided to tell the truth, “A child just fell down and disappeared.”
Xu Yixiang was shocked, “Disappeared?”

Yan Jing Cai said: “I say we should leave this place as soon as possible. We have already seen the old director so there’s no need to stay here any longer.”
He pulled out his phone and contacted a pickup service.
Su Min also waited to see if his call could connect.
“Fortunately, I have kept the driver’s phone number with me.” Yan Jing Cai found the name in contacts and dialled it over, “Now it finally comes in handy.”
Su Min reminded him: “Hurry up.”
Yan Jing Cai: “Don’t rush me.”
He placed the phone to his ear and listened to the ringing. It was then followed by an English notification indicating that the call couldn’t connect.
Xu Yixiang asked: “How was it?”
Yan Jing Cai couldn’t accept this reality and called again.
It was the same reminder.
Su Min had already expected this, “Didn’t get through?”
Yan Jing Cai’s eyes reddened. He wanted to try it again, “There’s no signal here. I’ll changes places and try.”
He turned around with his phone and left. Xu Yixiang followed behind him, “We will be back soon.”
Su Min really wanted to let them face reality, but he decided to just leave it.
He once again returned to the window and stared at the empty ground below. He suddenly thought of a possibility.
Back in “University Thriller”, the deaths were replayed at the end and Su Ya fell off the building again.
Was this a similar case?
Ten minutes later Yan Jing Cai and Xi Yixiang returned with panic, “We’ve tried everywhere………No good.”
“Can’t call out…….”
Yan Jing Cai paced back and forth. He said: “No, we must leave this place right now. This place isn’t right.”
As he said that, he returned to the room and got ready to grab his luggage and leave.
This situation was too strange. It was as if they were trapped and isolated from the rest of the world.
Su Min asked: “Are you sure you want to leave?”
Xu Yixiang nodded: “Of course. Accidents can happen here.”
Su Min watched the two of them fly out and drag their suitcase down the stairs.
He said exasperatedly: “They’re too naïve.”
Su Min only sat down in his room for a few minutes when Yan Jing Cai returned. His expression this time was even worse.
He asked: “Can’t get out?”
Yan Jing Cai angrily kicked the bed, “Can’t get out.”
And he even ran into the old director who wouldn’t let them leave no matter what and wouldn’t open the door. Even if they wanted to climb over the wall, they couldn’t because it was too high.
Yan Jing Cai subconsciously concealed the strange things that he had encountered and didn’t mention it to the old director. The old director brought them back.
Yan Jing Cai choked up: “I don’t want to die.”
Seeing this, Su Min comforted him: “You might not necessarily die. Aren’t we all safe now?”
Yan Jing Cai asked: “Didn’t that young girl die from falling off the building?”
Su Min said: “She’s a special case.”
Yan Jing Cai asked: “What special case?”
“She disappeared after falling off.” Su Min surmised: “So I think she probably wasn’t human originally and that it was just a replay of her previous death. That’s why she disappeared. She was not alive in the first place.”
Hearing this explanation, both of them felt goosebumps forming.
Xu Yixiang murmured: “……We had lunch with ghosts?”
Su Min said: “She wasn’t malicious towards us so don’t worry about that. Just get along normally and we can leave when the time comes.”
Yan Jing Cai was restless, “There are seven children in the orphanage. Don’t tell me none of them are human? That’s too scary.”
He quickly said those words and he suddenly thought of something causing his face to turn pale.
Yan Jing Cai asked: “Then is the director human?”
Su Min: “Not sure.”
The old director’s attitude was strange. It was hard to tell since he acted more normally than the social worker Xiao Chen, but he still gave them a strange feeling.
Xu Yixiang asked: “You’re not scared?”
Su Min calmly answered: “At most it’s just dying.”
Xu Yixiang: “………”
Although that’s true, but isn’t death already terrifying enough?
Chen Su had already left. Su Min could tell that it probably wasn’t dangerous now. He asked: “Is Han Qinqin in her room?”
Xu Yixiang said: “Yes, she was sleeping when I was packing my luggage. She’s probably awake now.”
Yan Jing Cai finally said: “Let’s go and see.”

The more people there are the better. Despite a short stay at the orphanage, he no longer wished to stay here anymore.
Han Qinqin’s room was also Xu Yixiang’s room. It was diagonally opposite their room.
Xu Yixiang opened the door and checked to make sure she wasn’t changing.
Han Qinqin really had woken up.
Yan Jing Cai sat on Xu Yixiang’s bed, “Did you see anything strange?”
Han Qinqin shook her head and said, “I haven’t seen any. I have always been in my room and nothing strange has happened.”
She wasn’t very used to having such an attentive audience.
Yan Jing Cai finally told her what happened, “So I think there’s something strange going on here. Be careful.”
Han Qinqin was doubtful, “Are you sure?”
That’s sounds like a horror movie. How can there be something as strange as that?”
Su Min said: “Not sure. That’s why we’re here to warn you.”
Han Qinqin couldn’t get angry and could only feel miffed inside. She nodded and said: “Okay, I know. I’ll pay attention.”
Su Min could guess what she was thinking just by looking at her expression.
He didn’t care much about Han Qinqin’s attitude. Because she didn’t’ see anything the whole time, she would naturally be doubtful.
Yan Jing Cai said: “Should we go and warn Shi Nansheng?”
“Don’t want to go.” Xu Yixiang didn’t like Shi Nansheng because of what happened at noon, “He’s not a good person.”
But dislike was just dislike. In the end, she still went along.
It was now seven o’clock. It was dark outside. The lights in the corridor were dim and there were several bowls placed on the dining table.
They went directly to Shi Nansheng’s room.
Before they could knock on the door, they heard a scream coming from inside. It was both harsh and sharp, and it startled the people outside.
After that, the voice started to turn muffled. They didn’t know what he was shouting, and it was just sobs.
It was Shi Nansheng’s voice.
Su Min said: “Go in.”
The room wasn’t soundproofed so the sound of screams along with the creaking of bones that entered their ears sounded particularly horrifying.
Su Min pushed open the door only to find that it was locked from the inside.
Yan Jing Cai was anxious: “This damned door. Let’s break it open.”
The voice inside gradually weakened. The two men rammed against the door and, after about ten times, the door finally fell to the ground.
Su Min also almost fell due to inertia.
Yan Jing Cai didn’t control his strength well and immediately collapsed onto the ground with a painful cry.
Xu Yixiang quickly supported him up and asked: “What is this smell?”
Han Qinqin frowned: “The smell of paint is too bloody. Is Shi Nansheng up to something?”
When they saw the scene by the ped, they were all shocked.
Shi Nansheng had fallen to the ground with his two legs spread out in a twisted posture while his upper body was sprawled over the bed.
The sheets below his body were soaked with fresh blood. With the window still open, the strong stench of blood drifted over.
As soon as Su Min saw it, he knew that he was dead.
Xu Yixiang screamed in fright before covering her mouth and grabbing onto Yan Jing Cai’s arm in fear. She didn’t dare continue looking at that scene.
Although Han Qin Qin was a little calmer, her expression was also filled with horror.
Su Min carefully assessed Shi Nansheng’s posture and noticed that something wasn’t right. He had both his hands pressed under his head.
Yan Jing Cai stuttered: “Wh-what now?”
Su Min said: “I’ll check and see if he’s still alive.”
If Shi Nansheng was extremely lucky, he may have been able to survive.
Su Min took a deep breath and walked over. He stepped over his left leg, approached the bed and bent over to look.
With this check, he also came to know of the cause of Shi Nansheng’s death.
Shi Nansheng’s face was buried in the bed. Because of the issue with angles, you could only see a little from the side. He had both his hands stuffed inside his mouth causing his lips to rip apart and blood to splatter out.
There were still residual bone fragments left on the bloodied sheets.
