Arc 6: Ghost Ship
Chapter 111: Capsize
Because the boat wasn’t like a yacht that could reach its destination quickly, it could only speed along slowly whilst being controlled by the middle-aged man hired by Qin Mu Yin.
After half an hour, the shore in the distance was just a faint shadow.
Su Min held some psychological trauma towards the idea of drifting at sea. It was probably because he couldn’t see land and couldn’t find a sense of security.
Su Ying asked, “Brother, what should we do if we really do end up dying and getting eaten up by fish?”
“Then we can only go home.” Su Min said: “Things like this all depends on luck. If you survive you can continue.”
Su Ying sighed.
The family of two both died by getting eaten up by fish. Just the sound of it was terrible.
Xia He Yin came over behind them and handed over two oranges. She gave one of them to Su Ying, “Do you want one? I brought some over.”
Su Min received it, “Thank you.”
Xia He Yin asked: “Were you all called over by Qin Mu Yin?”
Su Min said: “Yeah.”
In all honestly, Xia He Yin knew about this. She held a good impression of Qin Mu Yin, but they had not yet reached the girlfriend/boyfriend stage. Since she was invited, she decided to come.
Because it was difficult for it to just be the two of them, she invited her best friend Song Nan Nan. She later found out that Qin Mu Yin had also called some friends over.
This way, it could be livelier too.
Su Ying knew that it was better not to say too much and just stood next to Su Min. When nothing important was happening, she pretended to be mute and didn’t speak if she didn’t need to.
Xia He Yin and Su Min exchanged a few more words.
A total of six people came this time. The number that eventually boarded that ship was unknown. Since it was known that he and Su Ying would die in the sea, the remaining four would likely successfully board the ship.
Because like this, the cannon fodders could die instead of the protagonists and the protagonists would have more time to uncover the secret of the ghost ship.
In the character script, Su Min, Qin Mu Yin and Tang Yishu were quite close but he had only met Xia He Yin and Song Nan Nan a few times and they had not spoken before.
Seeing Xia He Yin and Su Min talking, Qin Mu Yin took the opportunity to take him away and gave him a warning.
When it was a little past three in the afternoon, the boat stopped.
The old sailor came out from the front and said, “It’s here. You just need to wait until the evening to see it, it can’t be seen in the afternoon. If you’re lucky you may see it at dusk too.”
He spoke with confidence. It was obvious this wasn’t his first time doing this.

Su Min asked: “Will the weather undergo any changes today? For example, a storm or—–”
He was interrupted before he could finish asking.
The old sailor waved his hand, “No, the weather is fine today. It will definitely appear. Trust me, it won’t be a problem.”
Su Min naturally didn’t trust him.
If there weren’t any problems, then he would have to die at sea.
In the evening, the sun began to set.
Looking out, the scene was extremely beautiful. The weather was both breezy and sunny. No one would expect a storm to suddenly hit them later.
Although it couldn’t be taken out of the movie, Su Min couldn’t help but take a few photos.
They were near a small island. The island was uninhabited and the vegetation there were disorderly. The nearby reefs were constantly battered by the waves.
They randomly ate some things for lunch and naturally wanted to have something nice for dinner.
Qin Mu Yin had planned ahead. He had brought along a small pot and made spicy hot pot on the deck.
The strong aroma however would be blown away by the sea breeze.
Su Ying held her bowl, “The last proper meal.”
She had seen several movies before this. After getting onto that ghost ship, she didn’t know what the food would be like. It was likely that there may be some issues with them.
Su Min: “………You should speak less.”
With the constant reminders, he had lost his appetite.
Su Ying stuck out her tongue and quickly gulped down her food.
After eating, the sky outside had already turned dark and the sun had disappeared in the horizon. The surface of the sea began to glow a sapphire blue.
Xia He Yin and Song Nan Nan rushed over to the side to take pictures.
The glowing sea was gorgeous. It glittered a faint blue and looked like the starry sky in the middle of the night. It was both romantic and beautiful.
Song Nan Nan threw something small down and soon a new spark appeared, “Wow, look at this guys.”
They all looked ahead. Su Ming was standing a little behind them and he could hear the cries and exclamations coming one after another from them.
Su Min knew the theory behind this glowing sea.
Su Ying moved over and asked something she suddenly thought of: “Do you think Chen Su would turn into a mermaid and suddenly appear from there………”
Su Min knocked her head, “Stop your useless imaginations.”
“Humph.” Su Ying pouted, “He must be waiting for you on the ship. Don’t worry, the boat is waiting for you to board it.”
Su Min ignored her.
After appreciating the scene for about ten minutes, he was no longer interested. He went over to where the old sailor stood and asked: “Is it possible to change to the other side?”
If he was right, this was where the boat capsized. If they went somewhere else, perhaps they would be a little safer.
The old sailor looked around a little and agreed with him. He decided to sail over to the other side despite the view being no different.
You could sleep on this boat, but the conditions weren’t great.
As usual, half way through the night Su Min was awakened by the nauseous sensation of the boat floating up and down. Everyone else in the cabin was asleep.
He held on the railing and supported himself out only to find that the wind outside was terrible.
Many things that were originally on the deck had been blown away and the boat was also swaying. From a small drizzle, it soon turned into pouring rain.
The old sailor ran out from the side, “A storm is coming.”
Su Min didn’t bother arguing with him and went straight inside to wake everyone up. He then warned them: “A storm is coming. Be careful.”
The cabin suddenly became rowdy.
Su Min held Su Ying in his arms, “You should stay by my side and don’t run off. Call me if anything happens okay?”
Su Ying was still half asleep: “Okay, okay.”
A storm at sea wasn’t just scary. In no time, water began to seep into the cabin from outside.
The old sailor’s attempts outside were futile.
Su Min felt that things weren’t looking good for them.
They were all sheltered city kids and had never encountered a typhoon let alone a storm at sea.
As the group trembled in fear, the old sailor outside screamed. The entire boat then lost control and no more noises were heard after that.
Su Min’s heart fell.
Before he could shout out a warning, the entire boat swayed. It then suddenly plunged into the water. Everyone fell into the sea.
It wasn’t his first-time entering sea.
Without any preparations, it was a very terrifying and difficult situation. This was especially the case if you weren’t mentally prepared.
As soon as he opened his eyes, it wasn’t just sea water before him. It was dark blue and he couldn’t see anything at all.
When Su Min ascertained that Su Ying was still next to him, he breathed a sigh of relief.
Su Ying was holding her breath. She was beckoning him in the water. When she tried to speak, a string of bubbles came out from her mouth.
Su Min: “………..”
The boat had already capsized. Not only that, it was also broken. Numerous wreckages floated in the sea.

He grabbed onto a wreckage and used it to float to the surface.
His mouth was filled with salty water. It was a bit unbearable.
Su Min pushed Su Ying onto a piece of wreckage.
She was small so she wouldn’t fall off it. He himself hung onto the wreckage to support himself so that he wouldn’t sink back into the water. He could only endure this until the ghost ship appears.
Su Ying gasped for air and spat out a mouthful of water, “My god, can’t we just get onto the ship the normal way? Why does it have to be a storm? What was the director thinking? Trash movie.”
In one breath, she complained about both the director and the movie.
The storm that appeared suddenly also left quickly.
If it hadn’t been for the storm, he would have thought that everything was just an illusion.
Not far from them, blood was floating on the surface of the water.
Remnants of the old sailors’ clothes were scatted across the wreckage, but his body was gone. He probably could no longer be saved.
The moonlight in the sky was obscured by dark clouds.
With such a big commotion, Su Min was afraid that the shark nearby would smell the blood and swim over. If they came, they were doomed.
The sea was calm but littered with debris.
Qin Mu Yin suddenly appeared from within the water. He wiped away the water from his face and shouted: “Xia He Yin! Xia He Yin! Where are you?”
Ahead of them, there was a figure floating in the water.
He quickly swam over and used the boat wreckages to support her up. Together, they floated amidst the waves.
In any case, this was a movie. If it was reality, they would have already died in the sea. Something like floating in the sea while relying on wreckages to stay afloat was not possible.
Xia He Yin finally regained consciousness after some attempts at resuscitation by Qin Mu Yin.
They were all a short distance away from one another.
Tang Yishu also managed to survive. He said: “What do we do now? We’re in the middle of the sea and we don’t have a boat. The old sailor is also dead. How are we going to get back?”
They naturally couldn’t swim all the way back.
Song Nan Nan laboriously climbed onto a floating board and swayed with the waves, “I shouldn’t have come along. I’m still so young and I haven’t even dated. I’m going to die here…..”
She started to sob.
Qin Mu Yin felt guilty. He decided to set off today because the weather was good, but he didn’t expect there to be a sudden storm. Even the old sailor had died.
He said: “Let’s go to that island over there first and see if we can find anyone or find help.”
It was definitely not possible in the sea.
Because of the storm, they were now quite far from the island. It wasn’t like earlier when they were looking at the glowing sea where the island was just around the corner.
Just that distance alone would take up all their energy.
Su Min didn’t move. He looked around. A minute late, he finally found his target in the distance.
The ghost ship was coming.
Song Nan Nan also saw it. She shouted for how: “Look everyone, there’s a boat! We can be saved! We can just get them to save us!”
Instantly, everyone looked over.
That ship was very large. In one glance, you could see that it had several floors. Each floor was lit up with lights from inside. It slowly sailed over in their direction.
Against the dark background, it looked very bright.
Once it got closer, they could make out its true appearance. The sound of music travelled down from above. People inside were clearly having an enjoyable moment.
Qin Mu Yin couldn’t help but read, “Victoria.”
That word was printed in large letters on the side of the cruise ship. There were several people standing on the deck looking down.
Following that, several ropes were thrown down.
It was evident that the people on the cruise ship saw them in the water and had moved over to rescue them.
Su Ying was lying in front of Su Min. She stared at the ship and whispered: “It’s a bit like scooping out noodles. They’re scooping us up and then they would throw us in the pot, boil us and eat us up.”
Although Su Min felt that her description was quite accurate, he didn’t want her to jinx them, “Can’t you say something proper?”
Su Ying blinked a few times, “The boat show is good.”
Qin Mu Yin and Xia He Yin ahead of them had already tied themselves onto the ropes. He then called over to them.
In front of the cruise ship, they appeared particularly small.
