Jian Zhi—

The angel’s lower half had already turned into a lump of mud, and its upper body was slowly sinking into the mud. The angel struggled to use both hands to grab onto the tragic Jian Zhi but was unable to touch anything, screams resounding endlessly.

Lu Yang had Slay hover horizontally before him, but he hesitated a bit about what to do. He felt that this guardian spirit was about to wink out of existence even without his interference. This wasn’t strange; there were plenty of cases where a guardian spirit would vanish along with the target that they guarded when the target passed away. It was just that this situation was particularly devastating.

Under the assault of the shrieking, Jiang Ziya asked with difficulty, “Lu Yang, c-can you stop the angel?”

“What do you mean by stop?” Lu Yang asked in confusion, “The angel isn’t attacking at all and will probably disappear once completely submerged.”

“Can you help the angel transcend?” Jiang Ziya really couldn’t bear to watch the angel get torn apart by Slay.

“You want me to help an angel transcend?” Lu Yang nearly choked. “Don’t you feel that these are two different religious notions? Besides, the angel is about to sink. I won’t make it in time no matter what I do!”

Jiang Ziya braced himself and said, “Would you make it in time to slay the angel? As long as you can make it so that the angel won’t continue to scream like this.”

Immortal Lady He: Was the stupid brat angry?

Liu Yishi looked at his cell phone quite helplessly. His wife was always so audacious. Their son had been called a stupid brat since he was a kid. He’ll turn rebellious like that! Fortunately, he always called him sweetheart or darling and used love to spoil their son so that he could grow up properly.

Detective Exorcist: He was only angry for a little while. See how nice he is to you?

Immortal Lady He: I bet he just doesn’t care where his dad and mom are.

Liu Yishi was so agitated that he almost coughed blood on the screen of his cell phone.

Detective Exorcist: Our son loooves us a ton!

Immortal Lady He: You obviously have that son complex thing.

Detective Exorcist: …

Immortal Lady He: Fine, I’m not going to squabble over this with you. You’re worried about that destiny thing Dad brought up? They were destined in the first place. They’re brothers!

Detective Exorcist: Brothers? Wifey, don’t tell me that you and Jiang Shang… Sob sob sob!

Immortal Lady He: Cut the tears. If you want to die, just say so! Don’t you remember when I said that they’d become sworn siblings if they were the same sex, and they’d get married if they were the opposite sex? Of course Jiang Ziya is our Ah Yang’s brother!

Detective Exorcist: But, dearest, our daughter-in-law has already married another.

Immortal Lady He: What?

Detective Exorcist: Jiang Ziya has a twin sister.

Immortal Lady He: … Damn, we were too slow.

Liu Yishi snickered. Dearest, you’re always so adorable!

Footsteps sounded. Liu Yishi lifted his head and saw Hu Lican and Fang Da walk out.

Detective Exorcist: It’s about time. I’m off to deal with the case.

Immortal Lady He: Okay, make sure to look for Jiang Shang. I remembered he was a strange guy. He shouldn’t have kicked the bucket so easily.

Liu Yishi pondered over it but still typed a final sentence.

Detective Exorcist: So it’s easy for Yang Jiayin to kick the bucket?

Liu Yishi calmly waited outside the abandoned campus, drawing the attention of the policemen coming and going. Fortunately, this situation did not continue for long before the person he was waiting for arrived.

“You are Lu Yang’s father?”

Before Liu Yishi could give a greeting, he heard a young policeman mutter, “How come it’s a westerner? I don’t know English!”

Liu Yishi smiled and used fluent and proper Mandarin to say, “Since my son is half, as the dad, I can only be a foreigner.”

Hu Lican immediately whacked his partner on the back, the force so great that Fang Da’s heart was nearly ejected from his ribcage.

As he picked up the feathers, Jiang Ziya found that he had strangely returned to the location of the first school wonder. Did the angel disappear so early on?

A sudden flash of light made Jiang Ziya lift his head to look up at the rooftop of the department building, only for him to discover a figure standing beside the fence of the roof.

“Hey! Careful!”

Jiang Ziya shouted a few times, but the other person didn’t react at all. The only thing Jiang Ziya could do was begin to dash toward the roof. As expected, all the doors were open on the way there, as if someone had gone ahead of him.

He rushed straight to the rooftop, gasping for air. It felt like he had done a whole month’s worth of running today.

He tried pushing the metal door to the rooftop, and it swung open just like he thought it would. The moment he walked in, Jiang Ziya’s gaze was drawn by the most eye-catching thing there—the angel.

“Why did you say those words?” Lu Yang demanded, “Don’t you know what the legend says?”

Jian Zhi asked in confusion, “If I don’t say it, how would we disprove the legend? We agreed from the start that I would say these words.”

“When did we decide something like that?” someone asked, puzzled.

“Huh? Didn’t we say I would handle this legend?” Jian Zhi looked like he was confused, too.

“No way…”

Lu Yang was practically about to explode. At first, he had thought the club to be somewhat proper, given that they had prayed and made offerings before setting off, so nothing serious should happen. Yet they had actually deliberately assigned someone to test the legend out?

“Don’t continue any further!” Lu Yang snapped, “If I knew the club activity would be so absurd, we wouldn’t have participated at all. Lin Zhixiang, I’m leaving with Jiang Ziya. Are you coming with us?”
