C3 Who Is Telling the Truth

It wasn't until one of my legs was completely sunk in the ground that it stopped.

My heart was in my throat and I tried to pull my legs out. But the suction of the earth was very strong, and I had to put in a lot of effort to pull it out.

Just when I felt the grip in the dirt wasn't as strong as it was before, my ankle suddenly tightened, as if something had grabbed it.

I immediately thought of the dead man buried in the grave. I cried out in fear and then desperately climbed up the stairs.

But it didn't help. The thing I was holding on to dragged half my body into the dirt.

When I saw that I was about to be pulled into the grave, my entire body crumbled. I felt my vision go dark and I died suddenly.

When I felt it again, it was a cold hand that woke me up.

I remembered the hand that had grabbed me before I passed out. I cried out and jumped.

Following which, I heard a woman's soft moan. When I came back to my senses, I saw Soo Soo staring at me.

She must have been shocked by my actions and her eyes went blank.

The moment I saw Soo Soo, I realized that she was fine and a stone fell from my heart.

But Soo Soo's attitude towards me was extremely cold. She felt that the distance between us had widened significantly.

I found it strange. I asked if anything had happened to her and Soo Soo said that she was fine.

At this moment, I noticed that I was in a dark room. The room was enclosed, and the low ceilings were perhaps a little taller than I was, which made the room even more cramped and depressing.

There was no electric light in the room, only a single white candle that was flickering with a faint light.

This place was unfamiliar to me. At the same time, it had a very humid smell. I asked Soo Soo what kind of place this was.

Soo Soo told me that this place is still close to the Zhao Family's cemetery. However, this little house is rather hidden, so most people can't find this place.

I asked her where she'd been all day and whether my father had betrayed her again.

Soo Soo did not say anything. After a moment of silence, she told me, "Wu Lei, the two of us aren't related to each other in any way. Why are you helping me like this? You should ignore my matters."

She stepped back, obviously distancing herself from me.

I felt as if I had been struck by a heavy hammer, and my head was buzzing.

I had been helping her all these days on a whim, but it had never occurred to me that neither of us was a relative nor a lover, and why should I work so hard for her.

But after a moment, I understood. I did it not for her, but for myself.

I've grown up and done nothing, and sometimes I feel like a piece of trash.

But the matter regarding Soo Soo made me feel that I am still worth something. I am not trash after all.

Therefore, instead of saying that I'm helping Soo Soo, it's more about proving myself, proving that I'm still of value in this world.

After hearing my explanation, Soo Soo's attitude changed. She was no longer as cold to me as she was before.

She asked me if I really wanted to risk it for someone as unrelated as her.

As the two of us spoke, my attention shifted to the roof.

I suddenly noticed that the layout of the room looked extremely strange. It felt as if the two sides of the house were one wide and one narrow, completely out of sync.

At the same time, I had a very familiar feeling that I should know where I was, but I just couldn't remember.

As my mind raced, I replied, Really.

Soo Soo said, "I want to know if your heart is red!"

I said yes.

As I spoke, I saw Soo Soo's eyes suddenly become very sharp. The look in her eyes, like a knife, made me shiver.

I jumped and instinctively tried to sit up. But she didn't expect to be held down by her.

Following which, I saw Soo Soo's long fingers were like sharp knives that stabbed into my flesh.

I cried out in pain, telling her to stop. But Soo Soo did not care about my screams. Her five fingers had already pierced into my chest.

I could even feel the sharp pain in my heart where her fingernails had pierced me.

My screams reverberated through the narrow space. However, Soo Soo did not seem to care at all. Her fingers moved and grabbed onto my heart. I was in so much pain that I died.

I was jolted awake by a jolt, and then I felt a thick set of shoulders.

After a moment of shock, I realized that I was on a person's back.

I was carried home in a daze, and when I was put to bed, I saw my father's anxious face.

After a few dazed hours, when I was fully awake, I saw a dark, eerie face.

It was a woman's face. It was old and wrinkled, but what was even more frightening was that under the nose and mouth, there was no skin at all. All of Yin Hong's gums were exposed, making me crawl out of bed in fright.

Then I heard a voice as hoarse as a knife scraping glass: Wake up.

Looking at that terrible face, my heart was pounding, and I asked her if she was a human or a ghost.

Then he heard my father's reproachful voice: Don't talk nonsense.

The Grand Matriarch meant that she was an elder. In our world, any old woman can call her the Great Matriarch.

However, this is the first time I've seen such a shockingly beautiful grandma.

I composed myself and asked my father what was going on.

My father told me that he had been following me ever since I left, and had somehow lost him. When I was found again, I was lying in the grave, cold, and I almost thought I was out of breath.

He talked for a long time, but didn't mention the Grand Matriarch at all. He didn't know if it was intentionally or because he was too concerned about me, so he neglected it.

However, at this moment, I no longer had the mood to think about this. I gradually recalled what happened before I fainted. Soo Soo said that I would wait to see if my heart was red. After that, I fainted.

I suddenly remembered the time when she had reached out to dig my heart, and my body felt like it had been electrocuted.

I asked my father if he had chased Soo Soo away again.

When my father heard the words' Soo Soo ', his entire body shuddered. He told me to stop thinking about Soo Soo and that she was already dead.

I was furious when I heard this. I warned my father not to say anything about Soo Soo dying.

My dad gave an exasperated sigh and threw the pipe on the ground. He said coldly to me, "Don't you want to find Soo Soo? Come, I'll take you there!"

I was stunned when I heard this. Did he know where Soo Soo was!?

I was ecstatic to follow my father out the door, but it didn't take me long to recognize that we were going to the Zhaojiaji cemetery.

Half an hour later, when we got there, I saw that Zhao Quan'er's grave had a huge hole in it.

That's where I was last night, but now that I look at the size of the hole, it's a lot bigger than when I stepped in yesterday.

When my dad saw that grave, he was also shocked. Obviously, he had never seen it before.

However, he quickly recovered his composure. He pointed to Zhao Quan'er's grave and told me: 'Soo Soo is inside. She has already been buried.

I smiled bitterly and told my father to stop lying to me. I had just seen Soo Soo last night. How could she have died?

Before I could finish my sentence, my father gave me a solid slap on the ear and shouted at me, 'That girl is dead! I watched her die!' Hanging from the beam in Zhao Quan'er's room, dead beyond dead. She won't come back. Son, wake up!

After he finished speaking, he squatted down on the ground, tears streaming down his face.

I was momentarily stunned. Looking at my father's current attitude, it didn't seem like he was lying to me.

However, he said that Soo Soo is dead. How is that possible? I have clearly seen her these past few days. That kind of feeling definitely couldn't be fake.

I struggled with myself for a moment, then decided to trust my own feelings. Thus, I gritted my teeth and told him to stop talking. I would not believe him and I wanted to find Soo Soo to send her out.
