Chapter 14… The Bloody Apartment (Final)
The surrounding walls were scarlet, like coagulated blood.
The bald man came to Room 444 in the West Building, full of nervousness, he pushed open the hidden door, found that there was no danger behind the door, and then dared to enter.
He took an axe from the black book and gestured against the blood-red wall around it.
“This male owner’s occupation is related to the construction site. He arranged and renovated the entire apartment. He would definitely hide the female ghost’s corpse secretly during the decoration process. The easiest way is to put it in the wall.”
He muttered. It seems like self-comfort: “If the body is hidden in someone else’s house, it is impossible to guarantee that it will not be discovered. Only by laying it in his own home can his plan be foolproof! Even if there is something abnormal, his family will not expose it…” The more he says it, the more he feels justified. The bald man gradually gained courage and slashed at the wall in front of him with an axe.
In a daze, he seemed to hear someone screamed in pain.
After he stopped, the sound disappeared again and the room was quiet, as if nothing happened.
So he relaxed again, waved his arm, and slashed fiercely with one axe after another. The axe blessed by the skill was very sharp and he quickly smashed the cement wall into a notch.
“It hurts…it hurts…” Amidst the slashing sound of “dongdongdongdong”, a trace of the woman’s painful cry was drowned out by the noise.
The bald man was still struggling to raise the axe in his hand, but he didn’t notice that the whole room was changing. The bloody red on the wall gradually condensed, and the blood thread leaked out little by little.
He just felt that his axe was getting heavier and heavier, and getting thicker and thicker. The blade of the axe seems to be wrapped in blood and it takes a lot of effort to lift it up.
Until the bald man heard someone gently asked him in his ear: “Why are you cutting me?” It was a woman’s voice!
The bald man who was immersed in excitement suddenly awoke. He stared at the notch he had cut out with a dumbfounded look. The place was no longer a wall, but a lump of squirming flesh and blood.
He backed away in horror but slammed his head into the layers of blood threads behind him, like a small bug stuck in a spider web.
The whole room has softened, and the blood-red walls have become throbbing flesh and blood, asking over and over again: “Why did you cut my body, why did you cut my body, why did you…” The bald man was terrified by the sight in front of his eyes and wanted to scream, but countless blood threads came up, dragging him abruptly into the notch that was just cut out, filling the gap in the notch.
The bald man was squirming, struggling and screaming silently under the bloodstained package.
But in the end, he remained silent.
The room calmed down again. Everything returned to its original state, the walls were smooth and flat and there were no gaps or marks except for a darker spot.
It was calm as if nothing had happened.
“Are you sure this is the key?”
The three of them stood on the top floor of the West Building again, trying to use the key to open the mezzanine on the ceiling.
“These three keys represent three people and the meaning behind the three people is different.”
Shen Yu replied: “Zhang Lili’s daughter is dead and she has no chance of being born. And Wu Jianyi plus the son of his lover can grow up healthily, play mischievously, and run around randomly in the corridor.”
“So of course, she hates this situation and the anger has evolved into a key.” He picked out the key with the name “Wu Xiaobao” engraved on it. Then he passed it to Anonymous.
Anonymous gently turned the key around in the keyhole, only to hear a “click” and the mezzanine was opened.
It’s just that in the mezzanine, there is no corpse as they imagined. The space inside is so small and narrow that there is no way to hide the corpse of an adult.
Anonymous swept the inside with his hands, only to hear a sound of “bam bam bam bam “, and a pile of bottles and cans fell off.
There was a pile of black plastic bottles with some pale, yellow powder inside which seems to be some kind of chemical reagent with a label attached to the outside of the bottle.
Shen Yu picked up a bottle and saw the name of the reagent written on the label.
“What the hell is this?”
He was hesitating when he saw Cuihua exclaimed excitedly: “I know!”
“This is luminol. We used to find evidence at crime scenes before. I understand what Zhang Lili meant. I know where her body is!”
Shen Yu: “Crime scene? Looking for evidence?”
Okay! It seems that Cuihua was definitely related to government departments in real life.
Anonymous raised his hand to stop the excited Cuihua: “Go on.”
Cuihua: “Even the blood stains at the crime scene have been cleaned, but as long as the luminol solution is sprayed, the iron molecules remaining in the blood will catalyze the effect of luminol. The luminous reaction is especially obvious in the dark.” (random lesson: this is true but even bleach, rust and coffee stains etc can cause positive results..so it’s not 100% reliable lol)
Shen Yu’s eyes also lit up slightly: “That is to say, we only need to…”
“Every corner in the apartment, don’t miss one.” Anonymous settled the words, “Let everyone who survived in the apartment come here to help.” Sprinkling the solution all over the corners of the apartment was a big project.
After everyone was busy, the sky had gradually dimmed.
In everyone’s surprised eyes, the blood-red walls of the West Building gradually exuded a faint blue gleam.
All the walls.
They don’t know when, the doors of the apartment rooms also opened one by one. All the residents living in the west building stood at the door at this time, looking desperately at the blue-emitting wall without making a sound.
A heavy atmosphere began to permeate the apartment.
“Luminol reacts with blood stains, and it emits blue light.” Cuihua couldn’t help muttering as she stared at the foreground.
When Shen Yu heard this, his heart couldn’t help but feel tense.
He knew where Zhang Lili’s body was!
Ordinary people only think that Wu Jianyi put Zhang Lili’s body on the wall or ceiling, but this method was actually not safe.
The corpse will always smell and rot, and it will also attract the attention of the police.
The best way was to make the body “non-existent.”
Wu Jianyi had a construction site of his own and there must be various tools on the site, so it was very convenient to dispose the corpse.
As a result, Zhang Lili’s body was chopped up, stirred into mashed meat, mixed with cement, and smoothed out in every part of the apartment during the renovation.
As a result, the body disappeared.
The pink apartment was born.
“This is the end, this is the end of the apartment…”
At this time, the apartment manager also came tremblingly, looking at the shining wall of the west building, muttering like on the verse of collapse.
Shen Yu suddenly noticed something wrong, and hurriedly pulled the others: “Let’s go to the East Building.” The newcomers were still ignorant, but Anonymous and Cuihua also reacted in time and hurriedly pulled all the newcomers away quietly.
But the administrator found them.
“They have the keys! The keys to leave the apartment! Catch them!!” The administrator roared hoarsely and pointed at them with trembling fingers like chicken claws.
No need to urge any more, everyone ran away, trying their best to stay away from the West building.
“Bang! Bang! Bang!”
Behind them, countless doors of houses were smashed open. A group of residents looked like crazy dogs, showing sharp yellow teeth, biting behind them tightly, running already. Unlike humans.
“Wait for us…”
“Give us back, give us the keys!”
“Stay, you stay too!”
The crazy whispers and wailing behind them got closer and closer. There were countless doors bursting open in front and the hideous and strange households were flooding like a tide.
Almost everyone will be surrounded!
But at this moment, the real blood wave came.
The red blood strands peeled off the wall, like sheets of sticky cobwebs, and like turbulent waves of blood, surging in the direction of the residents, sweeping everyone inside.
“I’m here, I’ve been here, I’ve always been by your side… How can you get rid of me!” The woman’s resentful voice was heard clearly in the ears of all residents.
The residents seemed to be ants tumbling in the boiling water, struggling and screaming, but in the end they could only sink gradually.
But the sea of blood bypassed Shen Yu and others.
Seizing this unique moment, Shen Yu, Anonymous, and Cuihua grabbed the frightened newcomers and escaped from the West Building in one breath.
Occasionally, a few households who were lucky enough not to be swallowed up by a sea of blood followed them like bereaved dogs.
“Where are we going now?” Cuihua asked.
“East Building No. 444, hurry up!”
Shen Yu opened the road ahead and took out another key from his pocket.
No. 444 was originally Zhang Lili’s home, but as a third party, Zhao Axiang occupied it grandiosely, but turned the original hostess out of the house, so the key engraved with the name “Zhao Axiang”…should be for the 444 that couldn’t be opened before. Fortunately, the door of room No. 444 was near. Shen Yu pierced the key into the keyhole and turned it as fast as possible.
“Wow!” The door opened.
Anonymous and Cuihua stuffed the panting newcomers behind them all into the room, then closed the door heavily and blocked it.
The residents behind were shut outside, and they all lay on the door, beating and roaring frantically.
The apartment manager was among them. At this time, he was desperately digging through the door, screaming in a hoarse voice: “Open the door, I can give you a generous reward… You can do anything you want, let me go in! The door of the room was smashed and rattled.
The newcomers in the room were in a mess. Cuihua held down these panicked people, turned her head and asked quickly: “We still have a key and the last door.”
If they open the last “door”, they can escape from this horror story.
Anonymous pressed the door of the house, Cuihua held the newcomers. There was chaos inside and outside the house and the final exit was still unknown!
Shen Yu took a deep breath, poured the last mint out of the sugar box and threw it into his mouth, letting the cold sweetness spread on the tip of his tongue.
He opened his black book again.
[Thirteen brave cleaners stepped into the pink apartment. 】
【The deceased stayed in the apartment and there were six living.】
【They cleaned the apartment, now it’s time to leave. 】
【But be careful, she wants to leave here too! 】
She wants to leave here too…Who is “she”?
Are the administrators and residents outside the door?
No, the book says “she”, not “they” or “them”.
Then who else wants to leave?
While thinking quickly, Shen Yu scanned the room.
When he glanced over the closet in the room, he paused.
There was a heavy solid wood wardrobe. It looked very sturdy, big enough to hold a person, and it was made of tight workmanship, leaving almost no gap to breathe.
This is the closet that suffocated Zhang Lili?
The meaning behind the three keys is different. Wu Xiaobao’s key opened the mezzanine and Zhao Axiang’s key opened the door.
And what does Wu Jianyi, who killed Zhang Lili, beat her and deprived her of freedom, symbolize?
He took out the last key and opened the closet with a “click”.
The closet was empty, but the wooden boards were covered with blood-stained scratches.
Before dying, Zhang Lili left these scratches in despair in a burst of suffocation.
There was a black hole at the bottom of the closet and it was impossible to see where it can lead.
Anonymous who was blocking the door glanced back, then whispered: “The exit is open, you go first!”
Cuihua did not refuse and pushed the newcomers who were still hesitating to the closet, then she kicked those who dared not jump.
After the newcomers fell into the closet, they all disappeared.
Cuihua also jumped in afterwards.
At this moment, the residents who were still smashing their doors outside suddenly screamed again and again.
The blood threads have swallowed the entire West Building, and now chased it to the East Building and once again swallowed a few caught fish.
However, after the settlement of all the residents, the blood did not leave. Instead, it wandered outside Gate 444, tentatively drilling into the gap between the entrances.
Anonymous turned his head and looked at Shen Yu: “Not leaving yet?”
Shen Yu: “Where are you?”
Anonymous holding a blade, cut off the blood threads from the entrance hole one by one: “Zhang Lili wants revenge, we have already avenged her. But she still wants to get out of here through the exit.” In the pink apartment, not only the residents in the apartment are trapped, but Zhang Lili is also trapped in it.
She is the apartment, and the apartment is her.
“The other side of the exit is our world, I can’t let her invade our world, you go first.” Anonymous said again.
As he was talking, more blood threads penetrated in, and the thin door of the house was crumbling.
Shen Yu murmured, but didn’t ask any more, just took a deep look at him, then turned and jumped into the closet.
A second before falling into the endless darkness, he heard the sound of the door cracking.
