House Keeper knocked on the door and patiently waited for the other person to open it.

Soon after, Jiang Yu pulled open the door and smiled warmly. “Did you need to borrow something?”

As she spoke, she looked curiously at the person behind House Keeper. It was actually a foreigner. Even though House Keeper’s eyes were dark green, making him look like someone of mixed descent, the one behind him was blond-haired and blue-eyed. He was completely a foreigner.

“No.” House Keeper took a step back and introduced the person behind him. “This is my younger brother, Hold Keeper. He recently moved in with us, so I brought him over to greet you.”

They’re brothers? Jiang Yu was momentarily stunned. She had really never seen brothers who looked so unalike. Their only similarity was their handsomeness, but what little brother would come to stay at his older brother’s girlfriend’s home?

House Keeper took the initiative to explain, “We are brothers with the same father but different mothers, so we are not very alike. Many people find it difficult to believe that we are brothers.”

A laugh escaped from Jiang Yu, and she said, “Can’t blame them. You two really are very different. Is your brother here to visit?”

The moment he walked into the ward, Lu Yang raised an eyebrow and pointed his right hand at the corner with two of his fingers held together. Slay, which was drifting beside him, abruptly shot out, piercing straight at the bloodstained shadow in the corner. A single strike was all it took to sever the shadow’s head. A head wrapped in messy hair fell to the ground, immediately turning into drifting ashes together with the body that had been kneeling there. Just like that, the shadow disappeared without a trace.

Jiang Ziya was stumped and asked in confusion, “Why did you wipe him out so suddenly?”

Lu Yang shrugged as he said, “That was an illusory familiar of the lowest caliber. It doesn’t have much awareness and is around the same as a cockroach. I normally don’t do anything about them because there are just too many. But you’re staying in this ward. I bet it’s uncomfortable looking at that kind of thing, right?”

Cockroach… Jiang Ziya was a little speechless. If the average person saw that kind of thing, it would at least warrant an entire ghost story. Yet, to my friend, it’s no different than a cockroach?

Lu Yang sat on the bed. His two hands had been rewrapped. Although he couldn’t avoid being nagged by the nurses, smiling in response couldn’t hurt.

“Remember to write my essay for me.” Taking his shoes off, Lu Yang lazily lay down on the bed.

The neighbors…

Jiang Ziya remembered how Yu Shu had told him to burn Xiao Xue, and his heart sank. He had indeed promised Yu Shu earlier, and had even assured Lu Yang that he would coax Xiao Xue out. However, as things stood, there was absolutely no way he could just sit around and watch Xiao Xue get burned to death!

Jiang Ziya patted Xiao Xue’s back and reassured her, “Don’t be scared. I’ll protect you. No one will be able to get to you.”

Xiao Xue abruptly raised her head, staring at Jiang Ziya in a daze.

“It’s just that I need to go to school in the daytime, so I won’t be able to take care of you then, and I can’t bring you to school either.” Jiang Ziya felt a little distressed. Though Jiang Yu was at home, it was hard to guarantee that Yu Shu wouldn’t pull a trick of some kind. For example, she could distract Jiang Yu herself, and have House Keeper sneak in and kill Xiao Xue.

Both of Xiao Xue’s eyes sparkled as she answered, “I can do that. I can go to school with Gēge.”

Huh? Jiang Ziya felt perplexed as he asked, “Then, what do we do when Sis can’t find you?”

“I can make a fake substitute and leave it at home.” Xiao Xue seemed extremely happy as she said, “With Jiang Jiang around, there won’t be any problems!”

That doesn’t sound too bad… Like hell!

Huff…Puff…

He kept running, panting until he was out of breath. However, he was ultimately unable to shake off the thing that was hot on his heels.

He was completely in the dark over how he had managed to attract the attention of such a thing, since all that he’d done was to head home from school like usual. The only difference would be that today, he was not with his classmate.

His classmate had said that he was visiting someone in the hospital, so his father had picked him up earlier.

On such a rare occasion in which he was left behind on his own, he could only head home by himself. However, it was too boring, so he had simply decided to take a shortcut.

This shortcut merely cut through an alley, saving him the trouble of walking around a huge bend. Moreover, the alley couldn’t be considered isolated, for when he walked through, he could still hear the sounds of chatter coming from other people’s homes. In the past, he’d walked along this path with his classmate several times, but his classmate disliked walking through this area a lot. Therefore, they rarely took the shortcut.

The moment he stepped into the alley this time, a strange feeling arose inside of him. However, a quick glance to the right and left proved that there was nothing unusual. The sky was still bright, and the alleyway was not dark. There simply didn’t seem like there was anything wrong…

After a moment’s hesitation, he walked further in.

In the beginning, he could still idly think about whether he should ask his mom if he could go over to his classmate’s home tomorrow. However, upon walking for several minutes blankly, he finally realized that something was wrong.

“From now on, you will be known as Hold Keeper and will be House Keeper’s little brother. You got that?”

Anyways, I was lying with my eyes open.

The golden-haired man standing in front of me obviously had blue eyes, while House Keeper was black-haired with green eyes. No matter how you looked at them, be it horizontally or vertically, these two looked like the least similar brothers in history! The only point they had in common was probably the fact that they both wore strangely formal clothing.

House Keeper was decked out in a dress shirt, bow tie, and vest.

As for the golden-haired fellow, he had fussed over his choices when selecting clothes to buy and had insisted on buying these gorgeous white, priest robes. Although the clothes were transformed from doll clothes, they were still so pricey that it made my heart hurt!

Nowadays, even dolls had it better than humans.
