“Hu Lican didn’t pick up either.”

Jiang Ziya hung up, almost unable to bear seeing how terrible Lu Yang’s expression might be.

Lu Yang made a shushing motion at him. His call had gotten though, which was a relief.

“Gramps, Dad and I made arrangements to meet by the school gates. He said he would come pick me up, but still hasn’t yet. Can you come ov—”

He was interrupted before he finished speaking. “I have nothin’ much to say. You have to solve this big matter by yourselves.”

Lu Yang frowned. It would be understandable for Gramps to lend a hand in a case as big as this one, yet Gramps wanted Lu Yang and his dad to solve it on their own. Could Lao Jun have given some sort of directive?

“Xiao Yang!”

As Lu Yang pondered over the reason, the person on the other side of the line switched. This was his grandma’s voice.

“Lao Jun stressed several times. Somethin’ impossible is impossible. Don’t you go believin’ in it.”

“That damn son of mine is going to be the death of me!”

Liu Yishi ended the call and once again regretted leaving his son behind for his parents-in-law to raise, leading him to growing up with an attitude as ridiculous as the Pacific Ocean was vast. He had only just been hit by a car, resulting in an arm fracture, and gotten held at gunpoint by Xu Xikai, yet he had the audacity to leave the hospital.

Hearing that Lu Yang had come over, Hu Lican was greatly taken aback. “Didn’t he just get hit by a car? Were his injuries that light?”

“He got a fracture! He was only just wheeled out from the operating room this afternoon!”

That left Hu Lican speechless. Since Lu Yang had helped him a lot, Hu Lican could only speak up on his behalf, “Youngsters can recover quickly…”

He was only able to get part of his words out before he could not continue any further. Hu Lican really couldn’t lie straight to Liu Yishi’s face. No matter how quickly Lu Yang was able to recover, it couldn’t have been that quickly. Hu Lican had seen with his own eyes the video of the collision sending Lu Yang flying into the air. Even if a regular person didn’t die from that, they would still be at death’s door, yet Lu Yang had immediately run about recklessly. Hu Lican really had to suspect if Lu Yang was actually like what Jiang Ziya always claimed—he couldn’t be considered human!

Liu Yishi tried his utmost to squash the unease he felt and said, “I’ll go get Lu Yang. All of you, stay here and keep watch. Before I return, don’t take any impulsive actions. Even if you have a lot of people, it still won’t necessarily be safe.”

Hu Lican nodded.

“Resurrection?”

Jiang Ziya was shocked. Although he had already heard of the key word “resurrection” from Yu Shu, he had not thought there would be a book of it. If something like that really does exist, does that mean no one has to die anymore?

He looked at the photograph on the floor. It was of a black book lined with gold, resembling some sort of magic tome. But even then, it was a big stretch to claim that this book was a resurrection spell.

Xu Xikai glanced at the photograph and discovered that it hadn’t changed. This situation displeased him.

“You don’t believe in it?”

Jiang Ziya nervously stared at the dark muzzle of the gun. He blurted, “How could there possibly be something like resurrection?”

Xu Xikai laughed. “Why not? Didn’t Li Yao get brought back to life? It was a pity that the people of this world could not accept her. She had to die again.”

Lu Yang opened his mouth to retort, “Stop spreading lies over there! That wasn’t Li Yao!”

Jiang Ziya nodded imperceptibly. Even Fu Taiyi had said that it was a spirit. It definitely was not Li Yao. If it was, then his boss’s action of hiding the spirit would instead mean that he had kidnapped a female university student! If he had done something like that, Fu Jun would kill him.

Lin Zhixiang anxiously rushed to the guys’ dormitory. Along the way, plenty of boys gave her dubious looks, but she couldn’t pay them any mind. The moment she grabbed someone, she pressed, “Do you know where Jian Zhi is?” She grabbed several guys in succession for answers. When she learned the correct location of his room, she immediately headed over and pounded on his door thunderously.

“Jian Zhi? Jian Zhi!”

The door opened. A guy stared in bewilderment at Lin Zhixiang, confused over why this woman was crazed to this degree.

Lin Zhixiang pushed the guy aside and ran into the room. It was empty. She immediately spun around, grabbed the guy’s collar, and demanded, “Where is Jian Zhi? Where is he?”

The guy frantically said, “Jian Zhi went to participate in a club activity. He isn’t back yet. He should be back soon. You can just wait for him. Aren’t you overreacting?”

Lin Zhixiang ignored him. She took out her phone and called Jiang Ziya, only for no one to pick up after three consecutive tries. She paled but remembered that she also had Lu Yang’s number. She quickly called Lu Yang and told him everything, including how Jiang Ziya wanted her to find Jian Zhi, but she couldn’t find him. Now, even Jiang Ziya’s number was not connecting.

Lu Yang told her he would search for Jiang Ziya and hung up on her. He did not instruct her on what to do next.

“Lad, be more careful. Look closely.”

Hearing a familiar voice warn him, Lu Yang immediately opened his eyes. He didn’t even have any confusion from just waking up. Two fingers on his right hand closed together as he planned to summon Slay.

Jiang Ziya originally had his head lowered as he peeled an apple. When he noticed the movement, he lifted his head to look at Lu Yang. He asked in confusion, “Why is your right hand raised?”

Lu Yang frowned. There was absolutely no sign of Slay appearing.

“Where is my Slay?”

Jiang Ziya was completely confused as he asked, “What Slay? Did you get a concussion? The doctor clearly said you only injured your hand.”

Lu Yang jolted and growled, “Stop fooling around. Do you think I’d get trapped by a mere barrier dimension? You actually believe that a hallucination can prevent me from summoning Slay? The bond between me and Slay can’t be stopped by any barrier!”
