C15 Purple moon

I looked at him and my heart was about to burst out of my chest. That person was actually a dead bayonet.

I subconsciously dodged to the side to take a deep breath to calm my emotions. After that, I carefully peeked my head out to take a look. I was certain that the figure was a thorn in my side.

However, the thorn that stood there was different. His face was as pale as a corpse, and his eyes were empty.

Suddenly, as if he sensed something, he turned and looked in my direction. When he grinned at me, I saw his sharp teeth.

If I'm not wrong, Stabbing Head is now a zombie. I suspect that he might even bite someone to suck their blood.

Thinking of this, goosebumps rose up all over my body. Seeing his figure getting closer, I recalled that Zhong Kui's secret magic seemed to have a method to deal with zombies.

I chanted those two incantations in my heart a few times before taking out the remaining charms from my body. I ran towards the stinger and quickly placed the charms on his forehead.

When I saw this, my legs relaxed and I fell to the ground. This kind of unorthodox situation was truly frightening.

I wiped the cold sweat from my forehead and looked at the unmoving thorn in front of me. I felt that I couldn't just leave it there like this, but I didn't have the guts to take it home with me alone for the time being.

After weighing the pros and cons, I dragged him to the most remote corner of the alley and covered him with garbage bags. I planned to go home and find Fatty to deal with this matter together with him.

After doing all this, I hurried home. The moment I pushed open the door and entered, I saw the fatty sitting unharmed in my living room. I heaved a sigh of relief and asked him what was going on.

The fatty gave me a puzzled look and said that he hadn't seen me since he woke up. Although he felt that the yin energy in the hospital was very dense, he didn't pay much attention to it. After all, the hospital is a place where people die everyday. Then I thought I was going home first, so I came back to find me.

After I heard it, I also quickly told Fatty about what happened to me. When Fatty heard that, he frowned and just said that it was really troublesome. First Fatty and I moved the barbed head to his house and locked it up, then we went back to my house together.

I happened to glance into my mother's room and wanted to go in, but when I opened the door and saw that her room was empty, it occurred to me that she might have gone out to work again.

I called for the fat man to sleep in my room, and I made a bed in the living room. I was afraid that my mother would suddenly come back in the middle of the night and turn on the lights.

About three in the morning, when I was in a deep sleep, a phone call woke me up completely.

It was the hospital. They were in a critical situation and didn't tell me why. I woke Fatty up in a hurry and we rushed to the hospital together.

As soon as I arrived at the hospital, I saw my mother lying on the bed with her face dark and sweating, and the doctor next to her had not yet been able to diagnose the problem.

I was so angry I almost beat the doctor up, and now, for me, my mother was my life.

It was the fatty who stopped me, then chased the doctor out to see that no one was around. Only then did he say that my mother was not suffering from an ordinary illness, but from the Miao Jiang venom.

When I heard this, I became extremely anxious. My mother was poisoned by Miao Jiang's venom at this time. Everything happened so suddenly, so I was unable to properly digest it.

When the doctor saw my expression, he pulled me out of the room and said to me and the fatty, "Since the situation has already developed to this point, there's nothing more to say. If you still want to save your mother, then quickly find an antidote. At least we don't have a cure for this poison in our hospital."

The doctor sighed and shook his head, as if in sympathy with me.

When I saw that the doctor looked even more upset than I was, I asked, "Where are we going to find the antidote?"

"To its birthplace, of course."

The doctor then sighed, "Young man, I can see that you are a filial son, but don't blame me for my words. Miao Jiang is a very dangerous place, and not only does it belong to a remote area, but its folk customs are also very strange.

The doctor looked at me and the fat man with a self-satisfied expression.

I turned my head and saw the look of certainty in the fat man's eyes. "Then let's go!"

I had to go, because my mother was the one who brought me up, and now that I'm so young and have nothing to do, it wasn't easy for me to come back, and my mother was poisoned by Miao Jiang's parasite, so no matter how difficult the journey is, I have to go.

After temporarily settling Mother in the hospital and controlling her, we set off for Miao Jiang.

That day, Fatty and I packed our luggage and set off for Miao Jiang.

In the past, I only heard rumors that Miao Jiang was very remote and had many unclean things. If it was in the past, I would never have come here, but now, it is different.

It was already late at night. The mountain road was rugged and difficult to traverse, but there was only this one road to Miao Jiang. Even if he didn't want to go, he still had to!

I could still hear birds chirping as I walked. The birds were already full, so they came out to make a ruckus. However, my companion, Fatty, thought that this was not a good omen. I'm too lazy to ask him for a reason.

On the way, I felt tired because I hadn't eaten all the way, so we had a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant.

While we were eating, a pair of gentle hands lightly patted my shoulder.

I turned around and saw that I hated people who interrupted me while they were eating!

However, when I looked back, I was stunned!

The girl who patted my shoulder is Lingling?

Eh? Didn't she already …

Ah!" I shouted loudly. The fatty looked over and was also stunned!

"Are you a human or a ghost?"

However, the girl in front of me looked at me with pure eyes, which made me a little embarrassed. Isn't she Lingling? Was there anyone in the world who looked so similar?

I took a deep breath. I turned around and worked hard to keep myself from getting into trouble, but the girl was sitting across the table from me.

"My name is Zi Yue, I'm very happy to meet you!"

He spoke to me in the same polite tone.

But I feel strange. We've never seen each other, have we? I'm not happy to meet you!

"It's so late and you're still at Miao Jiang. There must be something urgent?" She smiled, but it was a bright smile.

However, Fatty was not as reserved as me. After he asked around, we found out that this woman who looked exactly like Lingling was actually called Zi Yue, and she was a local Miao.
