Even the Lame Got Tricked by Me Into Standing Up

Chapter 58 Black Cat (ETL) Part 2

Chapter 58 Dead and alive again Part 2

The furry ball whose species could no longer be distinguished ran around Gu Ye. They rubbed against his leg gratefully and smelled his scent before quickly jumping into the building.

Next, Gu Ye followed the aura of resentment and found the dried-out river. The killing aura must be removed from the corpse. If the bodies are eaten by wild animals, they will be infected by evil spirits and become vicious.

When Gu Ye was about to get close to the target, a bright light suddenly shone over him, and someone asked warily, "Who?!"

Gu Ye raised his hand to block the dazzling light and felt that the voice sounded familiar.

The other party then asked in surprise, "Is it Gu Ye?"

Gu Ye frowned and said coldly, "Take your flashlight away!"

"Aiya! I'm sorry! Hahahaha~" The other party didn't care for his face at all and quickly apologized before running over with a smile. It turned out to be Xie Cheng, "It's late at night, why are you not in school and wandered here instead?"

Gu Ye helplessly replied, "I can't help it. I saved a cat and discovered hundreds of resentful spirits. I don't feel at ease if I don't come and take a look. Why are you here too?"

"I sensed a very chaotic aura of resentment. I was afraid something might happen, so I came over to take a look."

The two of them walked to the pit. Gu Ye turned on the flashlight on his mobile phone and looked inside. Then, he wanted to curse out as well. There were 2 sacks inside, probably containing animal carcasses. Fortunately, the weather is cool now and there are no flies, otherwise, it would stink here. He raised his head and looked around. It was too dark to see clearly, but he still felt the same resentment in several places nearby that had been buried with soil. This was obviously a dumping ground, and Liang Jianxin often came here.

Xie Cheng scolded, "There must be at least hundreds of little lives in this place. How many stray cats and dogs can there be? This cannot happen overnight! What bastard old beast did this?"

Gu Ye got rid of the killing aura and sneered, "It's not just stray cats and dogs. Some people abandon pets in pet hospitals. The hospitals can't keep them, so they give them away if someone wants them. This bastard hasn’t been idle in the past few years."

"No way, I have to find a way to teach him a lesson!" Xie Cheng pulled out a motorcycle from the grass and said to Gu Ye, "Come on, I'll take you back to school first, and then I'll investigate the case."

Gu Ye looked at the motorcycle and took two steps back defensively, "No need, the resentful spirits already gone to look for him."

Xie Cheng moved closer to Gu Ye, "They did? Have you seen them? Forget it, since God allowed them to appear, there is a reason. Everything in the world is caused by cause and effect. Let's not disobey God's will, otherwise, It's going to be a punishment of thunders."

Xie Cheng started his motorcycle, took out a helmet from the basket on the front, and gave it to Gu Ye, "Let's go, I'll take you back."

Gu Ye looked at the steep slope from here to the main road and shook his head in refusal. He planned to walk up it instead.

"Oh, you!" Xie Cheng had no choice but to follow Gu Ye for a few steps. When he was about to go uphill, he suddenly hit the accelerator. The motorcycle buzzed, swoosh, and flew up the slope!

Gu Ye: "..."

Xie Cheng happily waited for Gu Ye on top, laughing and saying, "My second senior brother's bike is very strong. Come on, the bike is durable!"

Gu Ye waved his hand awkwardly, "I can take a taxi back."

"It's not easy to take a taxi here. Also, I want to see your Kuman Thong who can write. Don't be like a girl and come up here!"

Using the flashlight from his phone, Gu Ye read Xie Cheng's facial features and couldn’t find any sign of a bloody disaster[1]. Only then did he accept the helmet and get on the bike.

Upon arriving home, Xie Cheng was shocked by Gu Ye's ‘richness’ and exclaimed, "Your house is so big! It also has a second floor! I want to rent it!"

Gu Ye waved his hand, "Wake up my friend, you can't afford the rent."

Xie Cheng clutched his chest, feeling like he had received a fatal blow!

Seeing Xie Cheng like this, Gu Ye said sympathetically, "Let's do this way then. During the New Year's Day holiday, I will take you to do feng shui calculations for others. After you finish the calculation, you rent a house immediately and pay 3 years' rent at once. You can't save the money but it’s alright to pay everything in advance."

Hearing that, Xie Cheng asked in shock, "What kind of Feng Shui are you looking to be able to get the amount of 3 years' rent?"

Gu Ye sighed. This silly kid was really cheated by the Xuanshu Association before and didn’t even know the market price. "I'm going to find a rich man, and it costs almost 1 million to change their feng shui. Then, we will donate 500,000 yuan from the fee, and each of us will get 250,000 yuan. With that money, you can pay your rent for 3 years."

Xie Cheng imagined getting the amount and was so moved that he almost knelt down to Gu Ye, "You are my parent after reborn!"

Gu Ye nodded and said seriously, "Okay, okay, you are not the only one calling me Father. You also have a little big brother surnamed Zhao."

Xie Cheng didn't care that Gu Ye teased him, and said excitedly, "I can just rent an ordinary house because I have to save some money to buy a gift for my master. His birthday is coming soon. Do the calculation for me, how long can I keep this money? I really can't save any money, I'm so desperate!"

Gu Ye looked at Xie Cheng and said sympathetically, "The days when you have money in your hand will not exceed a week at most, so spend it as soon as possible. Otherwise, you will lose money in various ways."

Xie Cheng: "If I die earlier than you, remember to burn more paper money for me."

Gu Ye: "Okay."

After Liang Jianxin finished disposing of the bodies in the basement, he returned home with a cold face. His wife had already fallen asleep and had no intention of waiting for him. He was also used to this kind of relationship with his wife, so he changed out of his bloody clothes and took a bath.

Liang Jianxin lay in bed unable to sleep. He couldn't figure out how the strange phenomenon that happened in the basement tonight happened. Was there really a ghost? The older generation said that black cats are spiritual. How did the black cat disappear when he already nailed it to the wall? The more he thought about it, the more unnatural he felt. Liang Jianxin pulled the quilt and wrapped himself tightly. He felt inexplicably chilly and his heart was tingling.

His wife noticed that he was back and scolded him with her eyes closed, "Worthless thing! You always return soon every time you leave. If you have the guts not to come back, I can still look up to you!"

Liang Jianxin glared at his wife's back hatefully. He gritted his teeth with a livid face but still did not dare to say a word. Turning over to another side, he soon fell asleep.

That night, he had a nightmare. He dreamed that he was being chased by a furry monster. The monster seemed to hate him and could find him no matter where he was hiding. The monster would bite him if it pounced on him! Also, it would tear him apart if it managed to catch him!

Liang Jianxin hid everywhere in fear. Whenever he ran slowly, he’d get scratched on his back by sharp claws. In the dream, he was covered in blood and was in severe pain. There was not a single unmarred skin on his body. Liang Jianxin knew that he was in a nightmare, but he couldn't wake up no matter how anxious he was. It wasn't until dawn that he woke up from his dream. He touched his body in horror and found that it was still intact, and then he breathed a huge sigh of relief.

In the past, after he tortured and killed the animals, he would sleep well as he had relieved his anger. This time, he had such a nightmare. Liang Jianxin was frightened and worried, thinking that he was really being targeted by ghosts. He was covered in sweat. After his wife woke up, she might wanted to scold him for being dirty and smelly. Liang Jianxin looked at his wife with disgust but still did not dare to resist her, so he had to get up and go take a shower.

It didn't matter how many times he washed it, Liang Jianxin kept feeling an itchy spot on his back. He subconsciously scratched it twice, but something didn't feel right. Why did it feel furry? Liang Jianxin looked in the mirror in confusion and saw what was on his back. He was so frightened that he almost fainted. There was animal hair growing on his back! The color of this fur is very mixed, there are all kinds of colors!

Liang Jianxin grabbed a handful of the fur in horror, making sure he was not hallucinating. He rushed out like crazy, found the scissors, and wanted to cut them off. Unexpectedly, when he started cutting, it hurt as much as cutting his own flesh!

Liang Jianxin broke out in a cold sweat and his face turned pale. He had no idea what was wrong with him. Then, the hairy area began to itch again. It was unbearable. Liang Jianxin scratched it twice, but it didn't work. The scratching force became more and more intense. It's so big that the more he scratches it, the more it itches. The skin on his back has started bleeding but the itching still can't stop.

Liang Jianxin rolled around and screamed in the bathroom because of itching. His wife was woken up by the noises and went over to take a look. She was so frightened that she screamed, "What the hell?! Why are there furs growing on you?"

"Hurry, I need to go to the hospital. I need to go to the hospital now. I can't stand it anymore. It's so itchy!" Liang Jianxin scratched and ran out, wishing he could run to the hospital right away.

His wife suppressed her temper and rushed him to the hospital. When they arrived at the hospital, they found that the hair on his back had doubled in size. The doctor had never seen such a condition before. After examining it for a long time, he asked suspiciously, "Why does this hair look like cat hair or dog hair? You really didn't put it on yourself to make fun of me, did you?"

Liang Jianxin knelt down in front of the doctor in pain, "Doctor, please check again. I'm already bleeding from scratches on my back! I'm itching! The itching is so uncomfortable! Please help me!"

The doctor quickly pulled Liang Jianxin up and said, "Stop kneeling. If cutting doesn't work, the skin can only be cut off. You guys can start registering for the hospitalization procedures first."

Liang Jianxin also didn't expect that this tuft of hair on his back was just the beginning.

The students at the school found that the new cook had stopped working after just one day, and many were dissatisfied, "Is the new cook so unprofessional? I still want to eat the meat he cooked."

"The meat dish at other windows is not delicious, do we have to eat grass now?"

"Ahhh, give me back my fat aunt! Give me back the chef uncle! I want to eat meat! Meat, meat, meat!"

Gu Ye heard these wails but he passed by while holding a tray of steamed buns expressionlessly, thinking that the chef’s return might be far away.

After school, Gu Ye asked the doctor at the pet hospital on the way home, "How is Dahei* today? Has it eaten?"

*Directly translate as Big Blacky, a super generic name for pets

"It's awake but it doesn't eat or drink. It looked guardedly at everyone's eyes. Why don't you come over and take a look at it?"

Gu Ye looked at the time and said, "Okay, I'll take a taxi there in a moment."

Not long after Gu Ye put down the phone, the pet hospital called again. As soon as Gu Ye answered the call, the other party said anxiously, "Mr. Gu, your cat is dead! It was looking normal just now, and all indicators were much better than last night, but suddenly it just stopped breathing! Even its heart stopped beating!"

Gu Ye was stunned for a moment and asked anxiously, "How can you say that it suddenly stopped breathing? Did you watch the surveillance camera? What happened just now?"

"Nothing happened, it just fell asleep… Huh? No, why is it alive again? It's breathing! It's breathing again!"

Gu Ye breathed out tiredly, he was scared to death!

The person on the other side began to apologize hurriedly, "I'm really sorry, Mr. Gu. I'm sorry for scaring you."

"Okay, it'll be fine." Gu Ye patted his chest, "I'll take a taxi there now. I'll be there in 20 minutes."

Not long after he put down the phone, Gu Ye received another call from the hospital. This time it was from a female nurse. The little girl cried when she came up, "I'm sorry Mr. Gu, your Dahei died again."

Gu Ye was a little annoyed, "...are you kidding me?"

"No, it's really dead. Because of the sudden situation just now, Dr. Wang was afraid that something would happen again, so he did a check-up. Who knew that halfway through the check-up, it was fine one second, and then suddenly it had no heartbeat the next second. No breathing, nothing. Just now, its pupils were dilated too."

Gu Ye couldn't say a word, and his heart was already cold. Even after binding the contract, the cat can only be kept alive for 1 more day. Maybe they don’t have fate together.

10 minutes later, Gu Ye arrived at the hospital. As soon as he got out of the car, the nurse ran out of the door and said excitedly, "Mr. Gu, your, your cat is alive again!"

Gu Ye: "..."
