After Transmigration, The Male Lead and I had a HE - Chapter 131
The escape room had a terrifying school setting and the number of people in Han Ming’s group was just enough to participate in one round, so this session was equivalent to being taken over by them as there were no other guests.
In order to increase the fun of the game, the boss even added a mysterious reward. He straightforwardly said that he hid a small golden crown somewhere on site and whoever finds it and successfully escapes with it will get a mysterious gift.
After they got in line and were properly arranged by the staff, their blindfolds were removed and everyone discovered that they were locked up in a school’s equipment room. There was a message posted on a frame inside and it said that only after finding five badges can they find the final password to escape.
The whole group rummaged through the entirety of the equipment room and found one badge. Then, from a garbled message on the wall, they were able to figure out the code for the door of the equipment room.
After exiting the equipment room, they entered the corridor of the school. The lights in the corridor were very dimmed, making it appear eerie and strange. There were even bloody handprints scattered messily on the wall. Everyone held their breath and when they reached the end of the hallway, “Left or right?”
Just when everyone was wondering where to go, the sound of heavy footsteps came from the corridor behind them.
They turned their head in doubt and just in time, they saw a terrifyingly-dressed teacher walking rapidly in their direction. It even held a bloody ax in its hand.
It looked especially horrifying in the gloomy environment.
All at once, everyone immediately scattered and fled in different directions, some even ran upstairs.
Su Qiuge was exactly that unique individual that decided to run upstairs.
Earlier, when she was walking in the corridor full of bloody handprints and spider webs, her brain had already started to short-circuit. Later, when she saw the unknown creature holding an ax and twitching, she felt as if she was going to directly ascend to the heavens (ie die). Although she knew it was fake, she still became the first one to rush out.
When she ran upstairs, she finally realized that there was no one else behind her. But at this time, it was too late for her to go back downstairs. If she were to turn around and encounter the unknown creature with the ax, then it would all be over.
Therefore, she quietly pondered for a moment, looked at the second floor’s gloomy corridor, took a deep breath, and found a classroom to hide in.
She thought in her heart that the person with the ax probably wouldn’t come up so soon. They might be busy chasing Han Ming and the others right now, so as long as there were no strange creatures on the second floor, then the floor should be considered safe at the moment.
She looked around the classroom for clues while deep in thought, and successfully found a badge within a small mechanism under the podium.
After finding the badge, she felt somewhat terrified in her heart because she couldn’t guarantee that there wouldn’t be staff on the second floor.
Although she kept telling herself that it was just a game, she still felt nervous and afraid due to being stuck in an eerie classroom all by herself.
She also couldn’t help but feel somewhat vexed, why was her brain circuit so different from others?
Everyone was on the first floor, so why did she decide to run up?
As long as there were multiple people with her, she wouldn’t have felt so panicked.
Her mind drifted off as she squatted in the classroom. Then her ears faintly moved and she heard a series of steady footsteps coming from the flight of stairs leading to the second floor.
It was unknown what material the corridor was made of, but it amplified the sound and the slow footsteps seemed to be stepping on the tip of her heart. It was as if the hunter had long known where the prey escaped to, so it sauntered over in a calm and composed manner.
And the prey had nowhere to escape to. It was trapped in a corner, shivering and trembling.
Su Qiuge’s breathing tensed and she glanced around the classroom.
She noticed that the classroom she entered had a huge floor-to-ceiling curtain, and as a result, she hesitated for a moment before she ran over and hid in it.
She heard the sound of the doors of the classrooms before hers being opened one by one. It was as if death was advancing towards her and it gave the same tortuous effect as what people would go through in horror movies as their sanity was pushed to the limit little by little.
Su Qiuge closed her eyes and thought in her heart that she might as well finish herself off.
Immediately afterward, that series of footsteps seemed to know what she was thinking as it walked towards her classroom.
Su Qiuge hid behind the floor-to-ceiling curtain, heart in a panic as she hugged herself tightly, meditating, “Prosperity, democracy, civilization, harmony.”
The classroom door was opened and the sound of footsteps got closer and closer.
At this moment, the highly nervous Su Qiuge felt an itch in her nose and couldn’t help but cover her mouth and sneezed.
The air suddenly became quiet and Su Qiuge noticed the footsteps paused faintly. It seemed to wander a bit before turning towards one direction.
She wondered if she had been discovered and even prepared herself to open the curtain and run without looking back in the next second. However, there were no more movements in the next moment, the person seemed to have already left.
But right when Su Qiuge let out a sigh of relief and her heart finally relaxed, a deep laugh sounded next to her ear.
The fine hairs on Su Qiuge’s body stood up and goosebumps immediately appeared all over her body. At the same time, somebody opened the curtain and made their way in.
Su Qiuge let out a scream in her heart and was prepared to see the bloody and mutilated face of the man with an ax, but after seeing who it really was, her originally pale complexion gradually became ashen.
