In the dimly lit private theater, the movie continued to be played.

After the first restless night, after dawn, the people on the island finally found out about the disappearance of the second generation student, and began looking for him.

However, they searched every corner of the island that they could see until the sun set, and there was no trace of the rich second generation.
Therefore, everyone turned their attention to the forbidden maze called out by the tour guide.

At this time, the elusive tour guide came online again1, reminding everyone not to approach it.
They also pointed out that if the rich second generation really disappeared in the maze, there is no need to look for them.

“There is something wrong with this tour guide, he knows about the maze.” Xu Xinghe said with a forceful calm while holding the hot cocoa Ling Changfeng had handed over.

Twenty minutes had passed since the last horror scene, and the main plot finally began.
Xu Xinghe seemed to have recovered a little, his face was much better than earlier, and began chatting with Ling Changfeng again.
“It seems that there’s really a devil deep in the maze.
You say, is this a natural disaster or a man-made disaster?”

“Man-made disaster.” Ling Chang replied calmly.
“Ghosts are not the key, the key is someone knows there are ghosts here, but still attracted the group of classmates here.”

After that, he turned his head to look at Xu Xinghe again: “Are you not afraid anymore?”

“…” Xu Xinghe took a sip of hot cocoa, raised his chin and said bravely, “I wasn’t afraid to begin with.”

In the process of looking for the rich second generation, they split into two groups.
Through the conversations with each other, some past events from the last 13 years gradually surfaced.

On campus, they had a high-achieving female classmate named Emily who committed suicide.

When it came to her death, some people had heavy expressions, and some people were secretive.


“Emily is the girl who jumped from the teaching building at the beginning of the film, right? The heroine said she committed suicide, but the blond man and the black-haired woman said she was killed.” Xu Xinghe stared at the screen and commented.

Ling Changfeng found out that his little spouse was really watching the movie seriously, so he could only follow his words: “She did commit suicide by jumping off the building.
Saying that she was the one who was killed, the focus should be on the cause of her death.
Some of them should know the inside story of that year.”

As Marshal Ling calmly analyzed, he silently adjusted position so they were closer.

Xu Xinghe suddenly turned his head to look at Ling Changfeng.

Marshal Ling’s black box operation stopped.

He heard Xu Xinghe ask: “You don’t watch movies often?”

Ling Changfeng turned his eyes back to the big screen as if nothing had happened, and shook his head gently.
“Not often.”

“Then you know a lot.” Xu Xinghe said.
“Generally, people who know the inside story and have a good relationship with the deceased are more likely to have a motive for committing crimes – to avenge the deceased.”


Ling Changfeng didn’t know if this was a compliment.
He was actually not very interested in the truth.
He was more interested in when the male and female leads, who were assigned to the same group to search for someone, would be able to hold hands.

He felt that the red-haired male lead in the film was not very good.
He talked a lot so far, but he didn’t explain clearly the fact that the female protagonist misunderstood him for cheating.
As a result, the two have no emotional progress so far, let alone hugs or other intimate actions.

At the thought, he moved the two of them closer.

In order to ensure the viewing comfort of each customer, cinema seats are generally spaced apart.

But most of the people who come to watch movies in such private theaters are couples, so in order to ensure couples can have fun watching movies together, the theater made some improvements to the seats.

The fully automatic mechanical seats can transform into various forms, such as, reclining chairs, massage chairs and other modes.
The armrests on both sides can also fold down, so that the two seats can be seamlessly spliced ​​together to form a double sofa or even a complete and comfortable bed.

Just now Ling Changfeng moved the two seats together very quietly, but the armrest in the middle had not been put down.

Xu Xinghe stared at the big screen intently, as if he didn’t notice that the distance between the two was shortening bit by bit.

In the movie, the plot continued.

The sun sets, and night falls again.


On screen, a man and woman were blaming each other for what happened back then.

The man kept saying that he just wanted to play a joke on Emily, and the woman said he did it on purpose.
Based on the woman’s rhetoric, she insisted that it was a man who maliciously spread rumors, which ignited the fuse that caused everything.

In order to prevent the conversation from being heard, the two ran to a place far away from the villa.
After a fierce quarrel broke out, they left angrily, and they both strayed into the maze.

“This is too ridiculous, why do these two have to chat on the edge of the maze?” Xu Xinghe whispered while his body tensed again at the sound of the strange music, unconsciously leaning in Ling Changfeng’s direction.
After a while, “They’re going to give away a head again… ah ah ah!”

He and the man in the film screamed together.

As soon as the screen changed, behind the black vine, a creepy, blood-red eye suddenly appeared.

The man screamed and wanted to escape, but was entangled by the twisting vines, dragging him little by little into the depthsl.

Two bloodstains were left out on the ground with both hands in vain…

Ling Changfeng was not frightened by the sound in the movie, but was almost frightened by Xu Xinghe’s cry.

He was about to speak, but the next moment, he suddenly felt a fragrant and soft breath coming towards him.

Xu Xinghe was like a frightened little animal, so frightened that he shrank up and leaned in the direction of someone subconsciously.

It was just like that, across the armrest, tightly attached to Ling Changfeng’s right arm.

Marshal Ling silently closed his mouth, lowered his head and pressed the button to lower the armrest separating the two of them.

Then, his body also leaned a little to the right.

Xu Xinghe didn’t realize the handrail disappeared.

Because the horror scene in the movie continued.

At the other end of the maze, the wounded and bleeding woman shrank in a corner, clasping her arms tightly with both hands, trembling, and bursting into tears amid the man’s screams.

In a short while, the surrounding noises suddenly disappeared, and the maze was dead silent.

The next moment, the woman’s pupils shrank sharply, opened her mouth, but made no sound.

In the darkness of the night, black claws slowly climbed up on her shoulders, and the blood-red vertical pupils reappeared behind her…

With the lack of sound in the film, the private cinema also became quiet.

Xu Xinghe hugged his knees and shrank in the seat without making a sound.

A pair of arms tightly wrapped around his body, and the veins on his hands were about to burst out…

Ling Changfeng turned his head and looked down at the little hedgehog leaning beside him.
The sides of his nose moved slightly.

His pheromones began scurrying in the room because of fright.

When the blood-stained eye suddenly enlarged on the screen, Xu Xinghe was almost shocked to tears.

A wave of panic and anxiety came over him, as if he was a kitten with exploded fur, and the person beside him couldn’t help but want to comfort him.

Ling Changfeng suddenly regretted it a little.

How can he let his little spouse be frightened like this under his nose?

Under the dim light of the theater, Ling Changfeng stretched out his hand, covered the back of Xu Xinghe’s hand with his slightly calloused left hand.
He even went further, clasping his entire small hand into the palm of his hand.

He finally didn’t have to wait for a hand-holding scene in the movie.

As an alpha, he seems to have a natural understanding of what to do at times like this.

He showed rare tenderness and patience, and said softly, “It’s okay, everything in the movie is fake… Let’s watch another one?”

When Xu Xinghe felt his hand being held, he shivered at first.

The next moment, a familiar smell came, which made him feel inexplicably at ease.

He stiffened for a moment, and then he reacted-

Ling Changfeng held his hand.

Xu Xinghe blinked, but didn’t dodge, just asked, “What did you just say?”

“I said, let’s watch another movie?”


“I know you’re not afraid.” Ling Changfeng sighed inaudibly.
“I’m afraid.”

Xu Xinghe: “…”

His mood suddenly improved after hearing Ling Changfeng’s serious nonsense about being afraid, but the voice was still muffled when he replied: “Oh, let’s watch another one then.”

Immediately realizing a problem, he straightened up, raised his flickering big eyes and asked, “Then what… weren’t the seats separate before?” When did they sit together??

As he straightened up, the little hand Ling Changfeng held in his palm also slipped away naturally.

Marshal Ling’s eyes moved slightly, but held back and said calmly: “You remembered it wrong, the seats were originally connected.”

Xu Xinghe: “?”

He looked at Ling Changfeng suspiciously, and started to wonder if he had hallucinated out of fear.

Marshal Ling calmly began to change the subject: “What do you want to watch next?”

In the end, in order to dilute the horror just now and adjust the atmosphere of the theater, Xu Xinghe chose a song and dance film with a youthful and funny theme about a group of young college students and their school life.

The whole film is full of a youthful atmosphere.
Under the happy interpretation of the characters, Xu Xinghe seemed to have recovered from the shock just now, and even began to comment on their singing and dancing.

By the time the movie ended and the two returned to the Marshal’s mansion, it was nearly midnight.

They went back to their bedrooms as usual after saying “good night” to each other.

Before parting, Ling Changfeng also specifically asked, “Can you be alone tonight?”

Xu Xinghe pretended to be stupid with a “what are you talking about” expression.
“What are you asking? I always sleep alone at night.”

After returning to the room, Xu Xinghe quickly took a shower, then lay down on the bed, intending to fall asleep quickly.

With all the tossing today, he thought he’d be able to fall asleep soon.

Unexpectedly, in the dead of night, as soon as he closed his eyes, he saw a maze surrounded by black vines, blood-red vertical pupils hidden in the depths, and screams and crying…

Lingering in his mind, hauntingly.

Xu Xinghe: “…”

A little scared.

He tossed and turned on the bed, unable to sleep.

A small light was clearly left, but even under the soft light, he still felt that the night was extraordinarily dark.

He tried playing some upbeat love songs, or soothing lullabies, but they didn’t work very well.

He also tried putting Xiaoqi on the bed to sleep with him, but it didn’t help.

After tossing and turning until after two in the morning, Xu Xinghe turned on the smartphone on his wrist and tried to find someone to chat with.

He first sent a message to the crowd of four at Capital University: “Is anyone awake?”

Ten minutes passed, but no one responded.

Then he turned to ask Ryan which movie they watched in the end, waited for a while, but no one responded.

Xu Xinghe stared at the electronic screen for a while, then suddenly reached out and opened his mailbox, and sent an email to a certain recipient: [Are you asleep?]

In almost two seconds, he received a reply from Ling Changfeng: [Not yet]

Xu Xinghe was stunned: [It’s so late, why haven’t you slept yet?]

Ling Changfeng: [Can’t sleep, how about you?]

Xu Xinghe: [I can’t sleep either, I want to chat with someone for a while]

Once this email was sent, there was no reply for a long time.

Xu Xinghe waited for a while, and finally locked the screen.

Not to mention loss, being alone and insomniac, he felt a little bit of fear and some loneliness.

Ling Changfeng may still be working, or he may have fallen asleep.
In the end, he doesn’t have time to chat with him anyway.

Xu Xinghe decided to prepare some sleep aids by his side in case of emergencies in the future.

He knew that there were probably sleeping pills in the Marshal’s mansion, but he was embarrassed to ask a servant to help him grab some in the middle of the night.

Unexpectedly, as soon as he closed his eyes, the terminal on his wrist vibrated again—

Ling Changfeng: [I’m here]

Xu Xinghe stared at the email for a few seconds, and then asked a question mark slowly: [? Where are you]

Ling Changfeng: [outside your door]
