take things step by step…

He reached out and patted Ajia’s head: “Go, go back to the room and pack up, let’s go climb the Nanga Snow Mountain.”

At eight o’clock in the morning, the sun in the extreme north had not yet risen, and snow swirled around the city.

The sky was a dim, foggy gray-blue, and everyone from the Science and Technology Department got on the hotel shuttle bus and set off for the foot of the mountain

The reason why Nanga City is named “Nanga” is also because of the Nanga Snow Mountain in the south.

Whenever the sun rises and sets, the gilded sunlight passes through the clouds, and shines on the top of the snow-capped mountains.

This is the scene of the local famous “sunlight golden mountain”.

Everyone came to the foot of the mountain, carrying their own big backpacks, talking and laughing up the mountain.

In the first half of the road, everyone climbed on foot.
When they reached the middle of the mountain, finally some people could not continue and chose to take the cable car up.

Xu Xinghe originally wanted to be lazy, but when he saw the caring eyes of his colleagues, he joined the team on foot to the top without looking back.

On one hand, because he was busy working overtime, he lacked exercise during this time.
On the other hand, he had to bite the bullet and continue.

Fortunately, the scenery along the way did not disappoint everyone’s hard work.

The sun rose in the east, and the rays of the sun gleamed down.

A group of people walked through the beautiful scenery.

Time passed by in such a fast way that everyone felt like they were swimming in the mountains and water for three days.

The fourth day is a free day.

Xu Xinghe slept in the hotel and woke up naturally.
When he woke up, he moved his limbs and found that his muscles were still aching.

He decided to go back and have a good workout with Ling Changfeng.
As for today, let’s have a good rest in the hotel.

Just thinking about it, the smartphone on his wrist suddenly rang.

Xu Xinghe glanced at Ryan’s call and clicked to answer.

“Team leader, what are your plans for today?”

“No plans.” Although Team Leader Xu was awake, he was not in a hurry to get out of bed.
He got up and leaned on the bedside, and skillfully ordered room service.”

“Do you want to play an escape room?” Ryan said excitedly., “James came to me just now and said that he wanted to play the horror room.
Eight-person room, moderate horror, and we’re still missing three people.”

A horror room?

Xu Xinghe moved his aching limbs and refused: “I will agree if it’s a secret reasoning room.”

“What’s the matter, team leader?” The voice on the other end of the phone paused and asked in a low voice, “Are you afraid?”

Xu Xinghe: “…”

He pretended to be relaxed and said: “Of course not afraid, but why do you want to come to Nanga to do an escape room? Wouldn’t it be better to go back to Nebula City to play?”

“It’s different, that room is said to have a good reputation.
It’s a large-scale real-life escape room.
There are few places like Nebula City where there is such a big room, and the price is cheap!”


“Come on, it’s the last day, we will return to Nebula City tomorrow.
Let’s play together, we can’t waste our vacation!”

“Okay.” Xu Xinghe thought about it, and he didn’t refuse.
“I’m going to wash and change clothes, what time is the appointment?”

When the group of eight gathered in the hall, Xu Xinghe realized that Gu Nai was actually here.

Ryan leaned over, lowered his voice and said in his ear: “I’m sorry, team leader, I didn’t know he would come too.”

After the forum turmoil, he could feel that the two were avoiding suspicion, intentionally or not.
When they went to climb the mountain the day before yesterday, Gu Nai excused himself that he was not feeling well, and didn’t go with them.

As a result, they didn’t communicate about the escape room and things ended up like this.

“It’s alright.” Xu Xinghe himself was very calm, and shook his head.
“We’re all colleagues and we can’t not see each other.
You can’t just stay away from each other just because of a few rumors.”

“Well, it’s fine if you’re not embarrassed.” Ryan breathed a sigh of relief, and his tone revived: “This room is said to be very scary and exciting! There will be many NPCs pretending to be ghosts to chase you!”

Xu Xinghe: “???”

He looked at Ryan with a haunted expression: “Didn’t you say it’s ‘moderate’ horror level?”

“Huh?” Ryan blinked and said innocently.
“Team leader, I said on the phone It’s ‘severe’.”

Xu Xinghe: “…”

Sh*t! Is it too late for him to quit now??

Just as he was struggling, another colleague came towards him.
When he saw Xu Xinghe, he was stunned: “Why did you call Team Leader Xu here?”

Ryan asked back, “What’s the matter? Our team leader can’t come? “

“It’s not impossible, it’s inappropriate… Didn’t you say that the secret room is scary? Team Leader Xu needs to rest well!”

Xu Xinghe: “…”

He looked at his colleague who wanted to help him directly back to the room.
Smiling stiffly, he said, “Thank you for your concern, I’m in good health and I don’t need to rest.
I can go to the secret room myself.”

Ryan looked at Xu Xinghe’s expression, approached him and asked in a low voice, “Team leader, you’re not really afraid of ghosts, right?”

Xu Xinghe was speechless.
He refused to admit that he was afraid of ghosts in front of Ling Changfeng, let alone in front of his team members.

“How is that possible?” Team Leader Xu tried his best to make his voice look contemptuous.
“Ghosts are the ones afraid of me!”

As soon as he finished speaking, Gu Nai, who was chatting with a colleague nearby, suddenly turned his head to look at him and smiled lightly.

Xu Xinghe: “…” This person is so annoying!


If last chapter was short, this one is looong.

Chapter is titled “Escape room”, but the room is more like a secret with some role playing involved.
