TRTN Chapter 28

Hide and seek (5)

Chapter 28… Hide and seek (5)

 

 

 

The dance party at night is still held as scheduled.

 

Chrissy, the dance partner tonight, was more enthusiastic than last night. When dancing, she almost sticked to Shen Yu’s body.

 

Shen Yu frowned slightly and moved away carefully.

 

“Dear gentleman, do you like me? Do you want to be with me?”

 

Chrissy leaned forward reluctantly, blushing, and asked the curse-like question, “You…do you want to join us?”

 

Shen Yu’s brows suddenly frowned.

 

He remembered the tragic situation of the couple during the day. He did not refuse at the moment, but he did not respond directly. Instead, he raised a smile at the corner of his mouth, “Chrissy, thank you for your invitation.”

 

“Being able to ride “White Angel” is my honor!This journey is so extravagant beautiful, wonderful, like the blonde in front of your forehead, like sparkling. ” ” Chris, you are so dazzling, is simply the center of the dance! ”

 

The girl  didn’t hear the answer she wanted.

 

But after listening to this inconsequential flattery, Chrissy, who was already blushing, was even more moved at this time, and her eyes were almost full of excited tears: “Mr. Gentleman, you are always so considerate.”

 

Shen Yu stood stiff with a smirk: “…”

 

Never imagined that he still had the potential to be a scumbag!

 

Maybe it was too comfortable, Chrissy took light dance steps, accompanied by the music melody at the prom, could not help but hum lightly: “…My name is Chrissy, I want to play a game with you.”

 

“I can’t see you, but I can smell your breath.”

 

“I can’t hear you, but I feel your breath.”

 

“Hide and seek with me! Be careful not to let me catch you.”

 

” Be with me. Let’s go together! Start from this moment.”

 

“Don’t move, don’t breathe, hide your shadow.”

 

“Hush! I’m looking for you…”

 

Along with the dancing steps, she kept humming this small tune until the end of the ball.

 

After finally going through the difficult dance party, after everyone returned to his room, Shen Yu quietly opened the black book.

 

The cover of this book has been hot after hearing Chrissy’s little song just now.

 

This usually means that he has encountered new clues.

 

[A group of travelers take a cruise and embark on a wonderful journey.]

 

[Will they find the purpose? ]

 

[Still fell into the abyss of the sea?]

 

[Hide and seek game, which side do you want to join?]

 

[Be careful, you will die if you choose the wrong one!]

 

Looking at the development of the plot of the book, Shen Yu brow slightly raised.

 

Everyone who stepped into the cruise ship put on bracelets of different colors at the beginning, and they had clearly distinguished their ranks.

 

But according to the tips given in the book, they still need to choose a different camp?

 

He held his breath and thought carefully, as if he wanted to find the link between the different clues.

 

But as the night outside the window grew deeper and deeper, an unstoppable feeling of sleepiness came to his heart again.

 

His eyes are blurred again…

 

No, that’s not right!

 

Shen Yu suddenly woke up, took out a small and sharp scalpel, and held it tightly in his hand.

 

The sharp blade cuts through the palm, blood oozes out, and the sharp pain rises, finally driving away the sleepiness entrenched in his mind.

 

He breathed out gently, slowly spread his palms, and looked at the blood-stained blade in his hands with complicated eyes.

 

This scalpel was given to him by Yue Ze when he first entered the story.

 

He closed his eyes fiercely, then opened them again, his eyes gradually firming up.

 

Now, it’s time to go out.

 

 

The night is still deep, Shen Yu carefully locked the doors and windows behind him, and headed to the destination alone.

 

From a distance, Starscream stood bored at the agreed place, wearing a fiery red dress, looming in the vague night.

 

But at this time, her face was not so pretty.

 

Because beside her, there are two men who keep spinning around her.

 

A teenager who looked no more than fourteen or fifteen years old, with slightly dark skin, showing a healthy bronze color, and the broken hair on his forehead was messy, lively and full of curiosity.

 

There was also a man who looked slightly older, about twenty-seven or eighteen years old, with a handsome face, and he was extremely attentive behind Starscream’s back, and he should be an avid suitor.

 

Starscream’s face was cold, and she waited for Shen Yu to appear before she eased slightly.

 

“These two are…” Shen Yu stopped and asked vigilantly.

 

Starscream’s face sank, “The two stubborn followers have been paying attention to my every move. Seeing that I was out at night, they took the initiative to stick to me, wanting to take the opportunity to get some clues for customs clearance.”

 

She wanted to use violence directly. The two rolled away, but the night on the cruise ship was too quiet. As long as the slightest movement is made, it would attract something else and defeat their purpose.

 

Otherwise she would have done it a long time ago!

 

But after hearing her words, the older suitor was not very happy, “Goddess, you waited for a long time, are you waiting for this kid?”

 

He scornfully introduced himself to Shen Yu with contemptuous eyes, “My pen name is Ao Long, the 67th on the white tower stone tablet, may I ask your pen name, and the ranking on the stone tablet?”

 

Shen Yu looked complacent, “The pen name Mint, a newcomer who has just started. I’m just a nobody.” Novelist Ao Long sneered, “It really is a dragging waste!”

 

He looked at Starscream, his expression changed suddenly, and his attitude changed as if he changed his face, “Goddess, you are carrying this kind of oil bottle. What to do? My strength is stronger than him, and my use value is greater than him!”

 

“If you want to accept a follower, I am willing to be used by you!”

 

He confided in it as if affectionately, his tone even had a sense of tragic sacrifice for love, and looking at the expression on Starscream’s face… she seemed to be vomiting!

 

Ao Long, the suitor, is still entangled with his face. On the other side, the bronze-skinned teenager, now with bright eyes, came up, “I seem to have seen you before!”

 

“You were on the first day. You discovered the rules of hiding in the ballroom on the top floor and knocked down several novelists in one breath. What to call you?”

 

“Mint!” Shen Yu had to repeat it.

 

“Brother Mint!” The boy rushed up, with little stars in his eyes with excitement, “You are amazing too! Can I follow you?”

 

“Don’t worry, I’m also a novelist and won’t be slow. My pen name isvcalled good night, which is the good night of Good Night in English!” The boy who said he was familiar with the introduction. [E/N: isvcalled what? If you know, don’t be shy and comment cute.jpg*]

 

Shen Yu: “…”

 

He finally understood Starscream’s mood a bit.

 

These are some messy people!

 

Ao Long on the other side was still chattering endlessly trying to belittle Shen Yu and sell himself to the goddess.

 

A slender steel wire suddenly strangled, like real spider silk, sticking to his tongue.

 

Starscream, finally snapped and said coldly, “If you dare to talk more nonsense, I will make you speechless in this life.”

 

Ao Long felt the cold killing intent on the tip of his tongue, and his face suddenly turned pale. Sweating coldly, nodding like a chicken.

 

Seeing him, goodnight quietly leaned into Shen Yu’s ear and whispered, “Actually, I don’t know him, but we both want to hold the thigh of Goddess Starscream, and we happen to meet each other.”

 

“Brother Mint, don’t get me wrong, this guy and I are not in the same group!”

 

Shen Yu: “…”

 

No, your wonderful work is not more concessionary than him!

 

At this moment, there was a sudden noise in the distance.

 

A few people suddenly became quiet, and swiftly hid in the corner of the cabin.

 

A white male with a beard came slowly, wearing a white uniform, and looking back constantly as he walked.

 

Shen Yu recognized that this person was the first officer Jack who had been abbot of the ball.

 

On this ship, even the chief officer has to patrol at night?

 

As if no trace of a few people were found at all, Mr. Jack just kept looking around, turning on the boat lights along the corridor along the way.

 

The light was piercing and bright, dispelling the surrounding night, and almost exposed the hiding place of a few people.

 

A few people suddenly concentrated and held their breath.

 

But after this was done, Chief Jack seemed to be observing nothing, and went straight to the next cabin.

 

Just before leaving, he seemed to inadvertently glanced in the direction where several people were hiding.

 

“What is this old white man doing?”

 

Ao Long breathed a sigh of relief when the other party walked away and whispered in a low voice.

 

“Hush!”

 

Shen Yu’s expression suddenly stunned, and he covered the other’s mouth, “Something came here again!”

 

A faint sound of water dripping came from the distance of the cabin.

 

It seemed to be the movement of amphibians when they were crawling, mixed with the patter of sticky water, something was panting, dragging a heavy body, moving it bit by bit.

 

Under the guidance of the bright boat lights, a slow-moving behemoth slowly appeared in front of everyone.

 

There was pale, looking almost bloodless sticky skin, resembling a human body, with twisted and slender limbs. Some translucent webs growing between fingers and toes, and there was no eyes or ears, only a pale and swollen face.

 

Shen Yu’s face changed slightly.

 

This monster is the water ghost in his previous dream!

 

At this time, the water ghost was crawling on the ground, slowly moving his limbs, sniffing his nose like a dog, as if sniffing something.

 

[I can’t see you, but I can smell your breath.]

 

[I can’t hear you, but I can feel your breathing.]

 

[Hide and seek with me! Be careful not to let me catch you…]

 

Inadvertently, Shen Yu suddenly remembered the song Chrissy sang at the ball before.

 

This water ghost seems to be looking for a target according to the sense of smell.

 

At this time, the water ghost is getting closer and closer to their hiding place, slamming its nostrils, and rushing straight towards them.

 

Suddenly, there was a soft noise in his ears.

 

Looking up, Starscream had used her steel wire to wind around the upper cabin fence, and she climbed to the top cabin almost silently, passing by the water ghost who was about to find her.

 

And the boy named Goodnight also used his skills to open a dark barrier on his side.

 

“Brother Mint, my skill can temporarily shield the senses of all the monsters in the story. It can hold two people, and you can come in and hide.”

 

Although it was only the first time they met, the boy seemed to have an extraordinary favourable feeling for Shen Yu, and directly invited him in to avoid danger in a low voice.

 

But before Shen Yu could answer, the Ao Long on the side gave a stern face, and suddenly pushed him away, squeezing into the barrier of goodnight.

 

“Fuck!”

 

Goodnight exclaimed.

 

What was even more unfortunate was that because of Ao Long’s fierce push, Shen Yu was immediately pushed out of the hiding place, directly exposed to the dazzling boat lights.

 

As for the sticky water ghost, he moved his nose, leaning close to Shen Yu in front of him, and sniffing lightly.
