Chapter 11 Justice Never Absent
After ‘God's dear son’ left, Gu Ye took out his small bottle and released the ghostly soul of the young lady and her ferocious big-headed son.
"Tsk, it's so cute." Gu Ye couldn't help but rub the kid's head.
After staying by Gu Ye's side for nearly a month, Wang Qianqian and her ghost son have lesser evil aura. They can stay sane now, especially the little one. He seemed to have gained a bit of human consciousness, and won’t bite anyone he sees. Being led by his mother, he seems to be quite obedient. Gu Ye put Wang Qianqian's ghost in through the window and the kid grinned happily, revealing a row of small fangs. Gu Ye rubbed him on the head again, so cute! If you don't eat people, you are a good boy!
In order to protect the mother and son from being harmed by living people’s yang energy, Gu Ye wanted to give both ghosts a talisman for free, but the young lady rejected Gu Ye's kindness. Leading her big-headed son, they bowed deeply to Gu Ye and then disappeared in the blink of an eye.
Gu Ye sighed, "This sister is a ruthless person."
Hearing that, Gu Yang became curious. After hearing about the tragedies that happened to the female ghost, he doesn’t dare to look at the female ghost again. So he is covering his eyes and squinting through the gaps. Gu Ye’s words caused him to curiously asked, "What do you mean?"
"It means that she wants to reunite with Li Rui as a family of 3, and she doesn't want to be reincarnated." Gu Ye smiled lightly and pulled Gu Yang up, "Justice may be late, but it will never be absent. You have to remember, ‘no zuo no die’. The heavens have never closed its eyes."
Gu Yang listened obediently, at this moment he suddenly felt that his brother is exuding some aura of an immortal! Especially when his brother said something he didn't understand, so awesome!
The concert has been going on for an hour now, Li Rui went to the bathroom during the time to change clothes. When he came out to wash his hands, he looked at his glamorous self in the mirror with heavy makeup. However, upon closer examination, the makeup still can't cover the thick dark circles in his eyes. He couldn't help pinching his forehead to let himself relax as soon as possible, adjusting his condition.
At this moment, a black shadow flashed past behind Li Rui. He frowned and looked back. In his heart, he thought to himself which paparazzi or obsessive fan is so unethical to take pictures even when he is in the toilet? Seeing no one, Li Rui cursed in his heart and turned his head with a sullen face. Seeing the scene in the mirror, his pupils shrank in fright, and he took two steps back in horror. On his own shoulder, there is a small black figure. It looked like a little person, and the figure is grinning at him. Li Rui looked at his shoulder in horror, but there is nothing there. However, when he looked in the mirror again, the little person is still there. Li Rui gasped and ran to the door in fright. There is a ghost!
It's a pity that before he ran out, he tripped under his feet and fell to the ground so hard that Li Rui's painful facial features are almost deformed. Man, that hurts! At this moment, Li Rui suddenly felt his ear bitten by something. He touched his ear, but there is nothing there. However, the pain became more and more painful, as if his ear is going to be ripped off. Li Rui is so in pain that his face turned pale. Thinking of that black ghostly figure sitting on his shoulder, he got so frightened that his body turned cold. Covering his ears in horror, Li Rui looked into the mirror again. Sure enough, the black shadow is gnawing at his ears.
Li Rui's voice trembled, and his voice changed due to fright, "Little ancestor, we have no grievances in the past and no hatred in the present, why are you pestering me? Tell me whatever things that you want, and I'll burn it to you!"
"No grievances in the past and no hatred in the present?" A long-haired ghost quietly appeared in the mirror, with a strong irony in the cold voice, "Li Rui, don't you recognize us mother and child?"
Hearing the familiar voice, Li Rui stared stiffly at this corroded face whose facial features could not be distinguished. This face appeared in his dreams countless times and woke him up in the middle of the night.
"Qianqian, are you...Qianqian?" Li Rui came to his senses and rushed to the door screaming in fright, "There is a ghost! There is a ghost!!!"
A gust of sinister wind blows over and the toilet door slams shut. The agent and assistant who followed over worriedly are almost slapped on the face by the closed door.
"Brother Rui, does he have diarrhea? Why does he take so long to go to the toilet? The guest singer has finished singing a song."
"Li Rui, open the door, why did you lock the door when you went to the bathroom?"
Li Rui heard voices outside and desperately banging on the door. However, the people outside seemed not to hear his cry at all. The more he slapped at the door, the colder his heart felt. When he turned around, he saw that the black figure has revealed himself. Baring his teeth at him, the little ghost giggled and leaned over to hug him, "Daddy, give me a hug."
Li Rui looked at his big mouth and held his head in fright, "Don't come here! Don't come here! Qianqian! I'm sorry! I didn't mean to kill you! Forgive me!" Li Rui is so frightened that his mental state almost collapsed. He blabbered incoherently, "I also felt regret these years, please forgive me! It's not easy for me to get to where I am today, it's really not easy! I did burn paper offerings and a lot of things for you every year, you should have received it. You know that I love you, right? I love you! Since you love me so much, you will definitely let me go, right?"
Wang Qianqian looked at the man she loved so much when she was alive with disgust. The fact that he kept saying the word ‘love’ at this point, she couldn't help but sneered, "What you love is just your fame. Don't worry, us mother and child will always be with you, even after you lose your reputation and fall into the abyss of despair."
Li Rui's manager realized that it had been 10 minutes, but Li Rui still hadn't come out of the toilet and didn't respond to his calls either. Fearing that something might happen to him, the manager had no choice but to get the security to break open the door. At this moment, Li Rui is lying on the floor, motionless. The manager hurried over and checked for Li Rui's breath. After that, he breathed a sigh of relief, "He only fainted."
The assistant hurriedly carried Li Rui out and let the doctor treat him. The concert is barely halfway through and something like this happened. The manager is feeling a headache coming. Looking at the unconscious Li Rui, he is thinking about what to do next. At this moment, Li Rui suddenly opened his eyes and sat up straight, startling everyone around him.
"Are you all right, are you too tired?" The agent asked in concern, "Can you still hold on? You just hold on for another 2 hours, and I will give you a day off tomorrow so you can rest well."
Li Rui stared blankly at the manager, then nodded mechanically.
The manager frowned. Although he is still worried, there are too many fans outside and they couldn't all hang out here. He patted Li Rui on the shoulder encouragingly and asked him to change his clothes and go on stage. "If you can't bear it, just tell me. I'll find a way.”
After Li Rui returned to the stage, everything seemed to return to normal. Li Rui sang another song, rousing the enthusiasm of the fans and the screams could blow off the roof of the stadium. The manager quietly breathed a sigh of relief. Just as he sat down to take a breath, Li Rui suddenly knelt on the stage. The manager's heart skipped a beat, and he stood up nervously. The audience fell silent, not understanding why Li Rui suddenly knelt down. Even if to thank the fans, he shouldn’t kneel like this.
"I'm guilty," Li Rui said firmly in his magnetic voice, "I killed my fiancée and my son. I surrender myself."
All the fans: "..."
The manager cursed sharply and directed the dumbfounded assistant to rush forward, "Drag him down! Has he gone crazy?!!"
The whole audience stayed silent. After the fans recovered from the shock, they cried and scream like crazy, "Impossible!" They wanted to rush to the stage, wishing they could hold Li Rui by the neck and make him stand up. Don't make such jokes.
The situation was chaotic for a while, and the security guards couldn't stop it. The reporter hiding among the fans also reacted and swiftly cut the video clip from just now, excitedly posting on the Internet: Big news! King of Songs Li Rui admitted that he is a murderer at the concert!!
All of a sudden, similar news spread all on the headlines online. Within a few minutes, the entire network burst into commotion, and the Weibo server crashed. One must know that Li Rui has done a lot of good things in the past few years. Every year, he will donate to welfare institutions, and he is kind and nice to his fans. He is an absolute gentleman and a warm-hearted man. How can such a person kill someone?
Many fans on the Internet don't believe it. Even after seeing the video, they still don't believe it's true. Brainless fans even think that this is photoshopped by someone, or that it's some kind of game. Even if Li Rui really killed someone, that person must have deserved to die. Brother Rui is such a good person, he absolutely did nothing wrong!
After Gu Ye and Gu Yang returned home, Mrs. Gu twisted their ears and scolded them. Then, the two brothers got ordered to sit at the small dining table, and to reflect on their mistakes while eating! The two brothers proceed to eat the 4 dishes and 1 soup left by their mother. After closing the door, they started browsing Weibo happily.
Gu Yang couldn't understand the behavior of some fans, "Are these fans crazy? Saying that those who were killed deserved it and Li Rui is not at fault at all."
Gu Ye sneered, "The more this happens, the angrier Wang Qianqian will be, and Li Rui will be the one who suffers. Moreover, he even admitted that he killed someone so the police will not ignore this."
Sure enough, early the next morning, it was reported on Weibo that Li Rui had been arrested. Since he confessed to a murder in front of so many people, he had to be interrogated according to the law. However, things didn't go as smoothly as expected.
Li Rui suddenly acted uncharacteristically and said that he was talking nonsense (during the concert), and he didn't kill anyone at all. His manager is also helping him clean up, saying that Li Rui has been too tired recently, and he still suffers from severe depression. Other than that, Li Rui would often have delusions when under great pressure. He would be so in a trance that he doesn’t know what he has done. They even have certification of his depression. Coupled with his entertainment company manipulating speech online, the police who arrested Li Rui per the law became the target of attack and netizens are shouting for him to be released.
Gu Ye looked at these comments on the Internet and became angry. He took out the scissors from the drawer and a piece of talisman paper. Next, he cut out the shape of a small person with a few strokes.
That night, the police received an unusual call. Someone reported that there is a dead woman in Wu Zhong School. It was the wife and child that Li Rui killed 7 years ago. Even the process of the incident can be explained in detail. How could a stranger know so clearly? The police immediately found the phone booth where the report was made, but unfortunately only found a small paper man with a red dot on its forehead on the ground.
"Let me show you something." Captain Li showed the little paper man to a friend who studies metaphysics, "Why do I feel like someone from your industry did it? Can you find out who this person is? He is crucial to this case.”
There are always some things that cannot be investigated by their manpower, so there is an underground department that the country does not recognize publicly——Xuanshu Association. There are strict regulations in this association, which they will help people to solve some supernatural events. Sometimes they will help to investigate cases and provide some evidence that cannot be found with high-tech means. Because they don't do bad things, relevant departments also acquiesce in their existence. Captain Li's friend is from the Xuanshu Association.
The friend took the paper man and studied it carefully, "This technique is very similar to a person’s style, and he is the only one who can manipulate the talisman paper to such an extent."
"Who is it?"
The middle-aged man said regretfully, "A genius spell master. He became famous at a young age, but unfortunately, he was too capricious. As long as he thinks it is right, he dares to do anything, even using forbidden spells. He has become a taboo in the circle at a young age.”
Captain Li pointed to the little paper man, "So he did this?"
The middle-aged man shook his head, "It's impossible. That man is already dead, and he died young."
Hearing that, Captain Li is puzzled. "A taboo but died young? Is this praise or criticism? What did he do?"
