C11 Strange grandpa chen

I knelt in front of my father's grave and thought about it. I imagined my future loneliness, and I felt like a child who couldn't find its mother. Tears silently streamed down my face, and sadness filled my heart.

Yi Yun wasn't in a hurry to get my answer. As usual, he calmly waited by my side.

After an unknown amount of time, Yi Yun finally said, "Let's go. A dead person cannot be revived. If your father saw you like this, he wouldn't be happy either."

At this moment, the sky had gradually turned dark and the sunset glow was like flames in the sky. I propped myself up from the ground. For a moment, I didn't know where I was heading to.

The village was already surrounded by smoke. It was a very lonely place.

It's a pity that my father is no longer here. There is no one in this village that I need to worry about anymore.

From afar, I could see Grandpa Chen pacing back and forth with a walking stick. His expression was a little bleak as he looked at me with his cloudy eyes. A bitter smile appeared on his withered tree-bark face.

"Fan Youzi, I heard from someone that you sent your father away, so I came to take a look." Grandpa Chen wasn't too surprised as he hoarsely said.

I lightly nodded my head. My heart was moved, but I really didn't want to say anything more.

Grandpa Chen looked back at Yi Yun and asked, "Is this a friend from your city?" It seems to me as if you guys have yet to have a drink this day. Why don't you go over to my place and have a meal first? "

Before I could say anything, Yi Yun nodded his head and said, "Then I'll be troubling you."

But just as we were talking, there was a loud noise from the next room, and suddenly a large crowd of people came rushing in. I looked around and saw the foolish son of the neighbor running out with a face full of blood, and with a strange smile on his face, he went out into the woods like a gust of wind and disappeared in the blink of an eye.

"Quick, stop him!" Several brave men shouted as they chased into the forest.

I was about to go take a look when Yi Yun stopped me. "Not for now, this is a little troublesome."

I was stunned. Looking at his signature faint smile, I didn't understand what he meant for a moment. Thus, I numbly nodded my head.

At the same time, Grandpa Chen also had a dejected face. He looked at me indifferently. There wasn't the slightest bit of surprise in his murky eyes. Instead, he lightly sighed and didn't say anything as he pulled me towards his house.

We had not gone far when we heard a heart-wrenching cry behind us. It was especially desolate, and we did not know what had happened.

Grandpa Chen is the Spirit Master of our village, he has no children and has always been a mysterious man. In the entire village, other than being on good terms with my grandfather, he rarely comes into contact with other people.

The moment I stepped into Grandpa Chen's house, I couldn't help but shiver. I felt that the atmosphere in his house was very gloomy, even colder than outside. It was as if he was in an icehouse.

Grandpa Chen looked at me and faintly smiled. He casually took out a jacket and put it on me before softly saying, "Fan Youzi, this is the second time in your life that you've come to my house."

I nodded with an embarrassed smile but didn't say anything.

I remember when I was young, my friends in the village said that Grandpa Chen was a monster that ate humans, especially when he liked the flesh of children. So, even now, I still have this shadow in my heart, how would I dare to come to his house.

Grandpa Chen's house was very simple and crude, with a faint musty smell. The dim yellow incandescent lamp was like his eyes, illuminating everything in his house until it was blurry, giving people a strange feeling.

In the narrow hallway, I glanced into the red light of the room to the side and saw a man in black sitting with his head down, eating. He didn't even look up as we passed.

I couldn't help but be curious as I was wondering why there was a guest at Grandpa Chen's house. Just as I wanted to take a look, I saw Yi Yun blocking my way, gently shaking his head.

"Fan Youzi, this place is open, let's eat here." Grandpa Chen chuckled and pointed to an old wooden table in the middle of the backyard.

I looked carefully and saw that there were a few side dishes on the table. Although it was light, it was still something that Grandpa Chen wanted. Unable to reject it, I nodded and sat down.

"This old man's coarse tea is not worthy of respect, please do not take offense, mister." Grandpa Chen's face was like the spring wind as he sized up Yi Yun and invited him to sit down with a smile.

"Not at all, this old mister is too polite." Yi Yun did not show any emotion on his face as he politely sat down.

Although my stomach did feel a little hungry, I lost my appetite as soon as I thought of my father. I sat at the table in a daze.

On the other hand, when Grandpa Chen and Yi Yun started talking to each other, they seemed to be chatting and laughing like friends that hadn't seen each other in years.

"Sir, you're a very capable person. Have you ever come to our Southern Mountains in the past few years?"

"I've been busy before, but I haven't been here yet."

"Sigh, this place can't be considered as a place with outstanding talents. The only one that could be more powerful is Fan Youzi's grandfather. It's a pity that Mister came too late, otherwise we might have been able to see him again."

"This old mister is too modest. In my opinion, this old mister is extremely capable." Yi Yun's eyes narrowed, as if there was a hidden meaning behind his words.

Grandpa Chen chuckled and glanced behind me. He waved his hand. "What kind of ability is this? I'm just bluffing."

I saw the two of them talking back and forth at the side, as if they were trying to solve a riddle. I couldn't help but forcefully raise my interest. I kept having the feeling that there was something more in their conversation.

At this moment, a gust of cold wind blew by, and I couldn't help but shiver. My eyes shifted, and I saw a black shadow suddenly pass by the table, disappearing behind Grandpa Chen before I could clearly see it.

I couldn't help but be taken aback. I focused my eyes and saw that there wasn't anything. It was as though there was some kind of illusion.

"What's wrong?" Yi Yun turned his head and looked at me.

"I'm fine." I shook my head and smiled faintly, thinking that I was probably too tired from the last few days.

"Come, let's go take a look." After dinner, Yi Yun bid farewell to Grandpa Chen and headed in the direction of my house.

"Grandpa Chen isn't going?" I looked back at Grandpa Chen, who was watching us leave with a faint look on his face.

"If Mr. Chen isn't going, he still has other things to do." Yi Yun didn't wait for Grandpa Chen's reply.

I felt even more baffled when I heard this. I kept having the feeling that something was amiss. However, for a moment, I couldn't find anything to say. I could only follow Yi Yun and leave expressionlessly.

From afar, I could see that the lights in the room next door were bright, gongs and drums shaking the sky, and the faint sound of heartbreaking wails and howls could be heard.

"Listen to my arrangements when you get there. Don't act without thinking." Yi Yun suddenly stood still and looked at me fixedly.

I nodded slightly.

"Meow." Suddenly, a mournful sound of a cat was heard. My scalp went numb as I focused my gaze. I saw a completely black cat squatting on the wall next door. It glared at us with its two green eyes.

My heart freezes. Isn't this the strange black cat that appeared in my father's mourning hall last night?

As if warning, the moment we got a few steps closer, the black cat immediately bared its fangs and bared its fur.

"This black cat is quite interesting!" Yi Yun gave me a faint smile before retracting his expression and glaring at the black cat.

Just from this glance alone, the black cat immediately let out a 'meow' and fled in panic with its tail between its legs.

"You dog, come back!" As soon as the black cat ran away, an old lady appeared at the next door. Her face was like that of a clay sculpture, and her eyes were dull.

"It's getting more and more interesting." Yi Yun looked at me with a smile that wasn't a smile, revealing an intriguing expression, which made me even more curious.

Even though I didn't have any good feelings towards the neighboring room, I didn't have any bad feelings about it. Moreover, it was obvious that something big must have happened in his house.

"Let's go in and see what's going on." Yi Yun ignored the old lady at the door and walked straight in.

However, just as he took a step forward, he was stopped.

"We don't welcome you here. Scram!" A burly man blocked the door with a furious expression on his face. It was as if he had a deep grudge with me.
