y were stretched all the way to her neck, this meant that she probably died of suffocation.

Seeing that the aunt hadn’t recovered from her fright, and there were no other NPCs around to stop her, Chi Yiyin immediately investigated the cause of Madam Ma’s death.

Was it an accident, disease, or murder?

This would determine whether the mother was among the objects of the female ghost’s hatred, and perhaps based on this clue, he could find out what happened that year.

After confirming that Ma’s mansion was the haunted mansion he had gone to, Chi Yiyin began to doubt the clearance conditions of the instance.

If the story he heard in reality was real, judging from the fact that the eldest daughter was forced to marry, it would be difficult for the Ma family to reconcile—not to mention, he had seen everyone except the master of Ma family dead.

The eldest miss of the Ma family had turned into the female ghost, the bones of the three younger siblings were under the table in the banquet hall, and the madam of the Ma family died in her room and turned into a mummy…

Harmony? Hah.

Chi Yiyin touched a foreign object in the mouth of the mummy, and after wrapping it in a handkerchief, he took it out.
When he saw the object clearly, he instantly understood the cause of Madam Ma’s death.


He stood up straight, and just when he was about to call the aunt to ask, he heard a sudden “bang!” from behind him, as if something had fallen.

The aunt’s screams and maddened murmurs also stopped abruptly.

Chi Yiyin remembered there was still the female ghost behind him, so instead of turning his head hastily, he lowered his eyes to look at the ground.

A ball slowly rolled over.

It was like the ball in the youngest brother’s hand.
It stopped as it touched Chi Yiyin’s shoes.

The first thing he saw was a dark mass, the ball thumped on the floor twice, and finally stopped to a still.

Then, the black ball dissipated, revealing a wide-open eye, looking up at Chi Yiyin.

[Wahhh!!!! Go away! Don’t touch me!!!]

[Mom, mom, there’s a ghost!!]

[What’s going on with this instance? What about the family reunion? Why is it so scary!]

And Chi Yiyin realized at this time that this was not a ball at all, it was clearly the aunt’s head!

While he was inspecting the mummy, a certain existence forcibly sliced off the aunt’s head.

That black color was the loose hair of the aunt, and she didn’t know even how she died until the end.
Fear was evident in her eyes.

In the dim room, only the light from the big red lanterns outside shone in, reflecting on the floor like blood on the ground.

The room was dead silent.

The surrounding precious wood furniture did not add a bit of richness to the room at this moment, but instead brought a heavy sense of oppression, making it hard to breathe.

A shadow suddenly flashed out of the window.

Chi Yiyin immediately looked up when he saw the shadow on the ground, but only caught sight of a red corner of the clothes outside the window.

His long legs stepped forward decisively and chased it out, but crashed into a sea of ​​red lanterns.

… The entire mansion was hung with red lanterns everywhere, but there was no joy at all, the red gave a strange and gloomy feeling.

No matter which direction Chi Yiyin looked at, he could only see red lanterns.
The black and white Hui style mansion seemed to have become a blood soaked hell.
When the lanterns shook, the lights and shadows swayed and overlapped, like countless ghostly shadows.

As if there were ghosts wandering everywhere in the whole mansion.
They lingered in this place dully, unable to leave and do not know their way back.

They were faintly visible under the red light, their pale faces carried the gloomy feeling of the dead, and whimpering wind passed through the corridor, like a group of ghosts crying at night tirelessly.

But Chi Yiyin just paused outside the door, and then strode towards the direction where the figure flashed past.

He pushed aside the red lanterns one after another, as if he was struggling to walk through the crowd of ghosts.
The lanterns, which were supposed to be light, were extremely heavy, as if every one of them was as heavy as an adult man.

A bamboo lantern made of red paper, with the big red letter “囍” stuck on it, the candlelight danced and licked by a tongue of fire, as if a ghost wanted to burn him to death here.

T/N: 囍 (double happiness) = symbol of man and woman at a wedding

But Chi Yiyin still passed through the overwhelming red, and vaguely saw a figure standing in red like blood.

The woman was wearing an old Chinese-style wedding dress, her long skirt dragging through the ground, a golden crown on her head, swaying gracefully, standing with her back to Chi Yiyin, so he couldn’t see her face clearly.

But Chi Yiyin didn’t even hesitate, and immediately called out to the woman: “Miss Ma—!”

“Ma Yuze.”

Chi Yiyin’s eyes were calm, and he lowered his voice and asked the woman in wedding dress, “You don’t want to marry, don’t you? What you want is not family harmony at all, you just want your own freedom in life.”

What is the most taboo thing for ghosts?

Memories during life, names after death, causes of death.

 Chi Yiyin, who had been visiting haunted places all year round to find inspiration knew this very well, but he still did not hesitate to call out the identity of the woman in the wedding dress and speak out about her life.

As soon as Chi Yiyin spoke, the temperature in the entire mansion dropped sharply, as cold as an ice cave.

He even saw white mist that he blew out when he spoke and breath out.

The graceful ghost turned slowly but gracefully and looked at Chi Yiyin with empty dark eye sockets.

Chi Yiyin stood tall, like an ancient well without waves, quietly waiting for the answer from the woman in wedding dress.

At the same time, his palm silently held the notebook in his pocket.

Amidst the thick white mist, the woman in wedding dress slowly turned around and looked in Chi Yiyin’s direction.

At that moment, hundreds of red lanterns all broke from midair and fell to the ground.

The entire blood-red mansion fell into darkness.

In the next second, flames ignited the lanterns, and the red color spread all over the ground in an instant like winding blood, and the sea of blood was boundless.

The woman in the wedding dress crossed her hands in front of her chest, her red nails were as sharp as knives, she stood in the sea of blood.

She was covered with a blood-red veil, and her face could not be seen clearly.
The wind blew up and lifted a corner of her veil, revealing only her pale and bloodless chin.

But Chi Yiyin seemed to be able to feel that her gaze was looking straight at himself through the red veil.

The mansion was covered in blood, and a group of ghosts roared and rushed towards Chi Yiyin from all directions—!
