HIAHM – CH118

Arc 6: Ghost Ship
Chapter 118: Disappear

In any case, he still reached out and touched it.

When Su Min touched it, he was met with a familiar sensation. There was just a slight difference – This one was rougher.

He didn’t know if it was because of the original owner or because of some other reason.

Su Min withdrew his hand and cautioned the others: “Don’t touch it.”

Hearing him say that, Qin Mu Yin felt that something wasn’t right. He approached it and looked carefully before asking: “What is it?”

Su Min said: “Human skin.”

He pointed at a place on it. Because it was an entire set, it wasn’t difficult making out the original owner’s features.

The most distinctive facial features however were gone. Probably because the director was worried that it would be too gruesome, it was mosaiced out. This made the man’s skin look a little funny.

But the moment he said that, the other people around him felt a chill run through them.

Qin Mu Yin froze for a moment. He had originally thought it was something strange but when he heard Su Min’s words, he immediately started to sweat.

He asked with a dry voice: “Are you sure? Is it really……..that? Have you seen them before?”

Su Min said: “You haven’t watched movies before?”

Qin Mu Yin didn’t know what to say. He also didn’t dare touch it. The coat hanger looked as if it was holding up the skin like a t-shirt.

It even looked like it was stuck there and difficult to separate.

Xia He Yin backed away from the bed, “This………..is Tang Yishu’s skin? Since he isn’t here, something may have happened to him.”

She naturally preferred thinking a little more positively. Perhaps Tang Yishu went out for some fresh air. But with the situation as it is, it didn’t seem likely.

Who would go out in the middle of the night for some fresh air? Even if you ignored that factor, why would someone put a skin like this in the bedroom. It wasn’t normal.

Song Nan Nan swallowed and hugged onto Xia He Yin’s arm, “Don’t you think you are all just thinking too much? This might be just someone playing a prank on us. How can a human be skinned so easily?”

She had never seen it before and was unwilling to believe it.

Su Min rolled the blanket up all the way to the end of the bed revealing the entire human skin spread out across the bed.

All the arms and legs were visible.

Paired with the brown hanger, it looked even more shocking.

Xia He Yin couldn’t stand looking at it anymore. She turned away, “Although I don’t believe it, I think it’s a good idea to call the police and let them verify the truth.”

She patted her chest to stop her urge to throw up.

Qin Mu Yin asked: “We’re on a boat. How can we call the police?”

Su Min said: “You won’t be able to call the police. We have to return to shore and wait. This ship isn’t fast.”

And they naturally couldn’t be returned to the shore.

The target of this ghost ship was them. If they were able to return to shore safely, then the movie wouldn’t be able to film anything interesting.

Su Ying said: “Think positive.”

Qin Mu Yin smiled bitterly, “Do you think we can think positive in a situation like this?”

Su Ying said: “Why not? It’s a good thing if the accidents that are happening aren’t happening to you. Tang Yishu’s situation here reminded us to be careful.”

Qin Mu Yin didn’t expect to be lectured by a nine-year-old child. He was completely unaware of the fact that Su Ying was actually in middle school and was about 15 to 16 years old.

Song Nan Nan said: “Let’s go and find the captain.”

Su Min thought about it and agreed with her suggestion. This was something that had happened on the ship so it must have something to do with the people on board.

The captain was problematic earlier so he could use this chance to test him out again to find out what exactly was wrong with him.

“Would he get mad at us again if we find him?” Qin Mu Yin still remembered the incident earlier, “He might really get angry.”

Su Min said: “Then you’re going to act like nothing happened?”

Qin Mu Yin: “Let’s go find the captain then.”

It was only to be scolded. It could just enter from one ear and leave from the other, but it was impossible for them to act as if nothing had happened. Tang Yishu was his best friend.

He stared at the skin on the coat hanger and still couldn’t believe his own eyes. Qin Mu Yin decided to check first to see whether Tang Yishu really went out for some fresh air.

The thought of human skin was too shocking.

Because it was still night, there wasn’t anyone around upstairs. They made their entire way down the empty and dark corridors.

There was no one on the deck.

It was as if Tang Yishu had disappeared without a trace.

The more he searched; the more Qin Mu Yin’s heart sank. He became more and more convinced that the human skin hanging from the hanger probably had something to do with him.

The wind of the deck was strong. It made their ears hurt.

Su Min pulled Su Ying along, “Okay, let’s go back.”

He knew that this was a movie, so he already could tell who the skin belonged to. The others however are the protagonists of the movie, so they naturally didn’t know the situation.

Qin Mu Yin turned around and looked away from the dark sea, “Let’s go and tell the captain and see how he handles it.”

They went inside together.

Unexpectedly, as soon as they turned around, they saw the captain standing at the door. Against the dark background, he stood there. They didn’t know how long he had been standing there for.

Like a ghost, he watched on silently.

Eventually Song Nan Nan made a sound of exclamation. She quickly covered her mouth and took a few steps back. She was startled by him.

Su Min was also a little startled.

Su Ying who had entered the movie for the first time was taken aback. She hid behind him and secretly watched the captain through a gap in his arm.

The captain’s hat sat steadily on his head. He asked: “What are you all doing?”

Qin Mu Yin took the lead and said, “One of our companions disappeared so we’re looking for him. Have you seen him around?”

The captain said: “No.”

He stepped out and moved closer to them: “It’s windy here at night. It wouldn’t be good if you end up catching a cold. Hurry and go back to rest.”

Qin Mu Yin shook his head, “We won’t be able to sleep unless we find our companion. Captain, you should come with us to check his room.”

Upon hearing his words, the captain revealed a disapproving look.

In a dark environment like this, Su Min still saw it. He saw that his stomach was still moving. It was massive as usual.

The captain said: “Then I will go and take a look with you. Come, it’s too cold out here. We shouldn’t stay here too long.”

They went back to their rooms together with the captain.

After descending down the narrow staircase, they reached the room. Tang Yishu’s room light was still on. The captain took the lead and entered.

He turned around and asked: “What do you want me to see? You don’t like the conditions here? Want a better room?”

Xia He Yin quickly denied it: “No, no. We’re very happy with the rooms. We wouldn’t dare ask for something like that after being saved by you.”

Qin Mu Yin added: “It’s just that the hanger on the bed is…….”

Before he could finish, his eyes widened.

The human skin on the bed was gone.

All that was left was the brown hanger in the centre. The blanket was still rolled up at the end of the bed.

Su Ying’s eyes widened. She tugged at Su Min’s clothes.

Seeing that the human skin had disappeared, Su Min frowned. Despite this, it was something he had expected. Afterall, it was a common practice in horror movies.

The captain asked: “Is there something?”

“This, here. This.” Qin Mu Yin reached out to touch the clothes hanger, “There was human skin on it.”

The captain still had the same tone. He looked at him with dissatisfaction, “What rubbish are you on about? How could there be human skin? Don’t speak nonsense.”

Qin Mu Yin hesitated, “Really………”

Seeing Su Min standing behind the captain shaking his head, he finally realised that something wasn’t right.

He cleared his throat, “Maybe I was still half-asleep, and I saw wrong. Sorry for delaying you captain.”

The captain was very satisfied to hear this answer.

He patted Qin Mu Yin’s shoulder and smiled: “Don’t think too much about it and sleep well. Young people have to take care of their bodies.”

Qin Mi Yun was scared by his smile. He didn’t dare say anything and could only nod his head obediently.

Soon the captain left. His chubby figure disappeared outside.

Su Min closed the door and isolated them from the outside world.

After a long period of silence, Song Nan Nan couldn’t hold it in anymore. She said: “What’s going on? We clearly saw it with our own eyes. How could it have been fake? It’s not possible.”

She even almost touched it.

Xia He Yin gasped and said: “It’s like that bug incident. It disappeared without a trace.”

She still clearly remembered it, yet it was gone.

If something like this happened once, you could say that you may have saw wrongly and that it was just an illusion but now that it had happened twice, that explanation was no longer acceptable.

Su Min nodded, “Looks like it. If we stayed here and watched it, we might have been able to find out something, but we all went out.”

As for where the human skin went, only this ship knew.

Song Nan Nan was timid. She started to cry, “What do we do now? I want to go home. I don’t want to stay here anymore. It’s all your fault……..”

It was originally Qin Mu Yin’s idea so he felt very regretful, “I’ll look for a phone tomorrow and see if we can get a boat to come and pick us up.”

Xia He Yin comforted them, “It should be fine.”

Hearing their conversation, Su Min didn’t speak. He himself didn’t hold any hopeful thoughts regarding that but he also didn’t want to scare them. It would only make the situation worse.

As for what happened to Tang Yishu, they would probably only find out much later.

………….

After experiencing this incident, their sleepiness was all driven away. It was not possible for them all to stay in Tang Yishu’s room, so they all returned to their respective rooms.

Xia He Ying and Song Nan Nan shared the same room. Only Qin Mu Yin stayed alone but he was also the male protagonist so he should be safe for the time being.

Su Ming and Su Ying went back to their room. They sat on the bed chatting.

“He definitely was eaten up by the coat hanger.” Su Ying’s curiosity was very strong, “And all that was left was his skin. Maybe that’s why it was hanging from the coat hanger.”

Su Min said: “It could also be left out intentionally for us.”

Su Ying thought for a moment, “That is also possible, but it would be scary if that was the case. I don’t want to be turned into human skin. Brother, we have to work together.”

Su Min: “……..You’ve watched too many dramas.”

Su Ying snorted. She pulled the blanket and covered herself as she laid down next to him, “Please be understanding if I end up kicking you when I’m asleep.”

Su Min was shocked, “You even have a habit like this?”

Why didn’t he hear about this from his family? It wasn’t a very good habit kicking others in the middle of the night. He himself slept quite calmly.

Su Ying blushed when she heard his question, “It’s just poor sleeping posture. I won’t do anything to you. No need to be afraid of a nine-year-old child.

She rolled over and showed her back to Su Min.

Su Min sighed.

He leaned against the wall and fell into thought. He then started to hear soft purring sounds from Su Ying. It was very cute.

Su Min smiled. He got ready to turn off the lights and sleep.

It was also at this moment when a knock could be heard on his door.

Su Min’s actions stopped. He frowned. He then went over to the door. After hesitating for a while, he spoke up: “Who?”

Something creaked outside: “Creak.”

Su Min almost tore the door handle off. He opened the door.

Outside, Chen Su had again changed his clothes. Probably because he was too good-looking, even if he was no longer cross dressing, he looked good in anything.

Su Min asked: “Are you still playing the dress up game?”

How many times have you changed in one night?

Have you decided to just let yourself loose after becoming human?

    He knew that this was a movie, so he already believed that the skin was Qin Mu Yin.

    I think It should be Tang Yishu here and not Qin Mu Yin.
