Chapter 25.2: 

There is suddenly a high octave sound in the headphones that woke Lan Ning up. She took off her headphones and looked at the time on the phone.

It has only been over an hour. She thought that it is almost dawn.

Her mobile phone battery is showing red, signaling that it is low. She connect it into the powerbank to charge and then slowly try to go back to sleep.

With no music in the ears, the surrounding is particularly quiet. The shadow of trees outside the window lengthened the moon into the interior of the wall. It looks like the claws of the monsters.

Lan Ning is really not very afraid of the darkness. But in this deep mountain forest that is also experiencing power failure, it is not completely said that she is not a little afraid.

What makes the matter worst is that she is now feeling hungry.

Earlier, because she was upset with Yan Ru Yu, she did not eat dinner. She only had half a bread to line her stomach. Now the stomach is empty. She is so hungry to the extend she could not sleep.

She got up and searched her travel bag and found that the snacks are all gone.

Thinking about the snacks, her thoughts went back to the pudding that Yan Ru Yu ate. If it not because of him, she would not be so miserable now!

Downstairs in the refrigerator, there must be something to eat. Should she hold till dawn or discredit everything and make her way down in the dark?

Lan Ning hesitated for a long time. She finally could not withstand the empty stomach. She picked up the phone and head out.

This house is too bad. It does not only make you feel lonely, it also makes you feel that there are movement everywhere in the house.

La Ning now had this feeling that there is always someone behind, in the corridor, round the corner, the stairs, the sofa…….. everywhere.

She swallowed hard and did not dare to turn back. She held onto the phone like a life saving devise. She turn on the flashlight functionality. Just now in order to save the power, she only had the screen lighted up. Now she felt better with the flashlight.

Passing the door to the room of Yan Ru Yu, she hesitated for a second deciding if she should wake him up and get him to accompany her. But just thinking of the earlier hand on her chest, she decisively gave up the idea.

She walked down the stairs step by step. She even did not dare to open her eyes much. There seems to be a gush of wind outside and then came the burst of rustling sound.

“Do not be afraid. You are highly educated. You do not believe these strange things!” She comforted herself in her heart. Lan Ning lifted her feet towards the kitchen. Her toes have not landed when she heard footsteps behind her.

Pita…. Pita….

Lan Ning: “………………”

Okay, okay. May be too nervous hence hearing things.

She stood still holding her breath. The footsteps behind her did not disappear. It seems to be getting closer.

Her mobile phone power chooses this moment to be exhausted. It shook a little and the automatically shut down.

Lan Ning: “………………..”

After the flashlight suddenly disappeared, the room is much darker in comparing with earlier.

Fortunately, there are two large floor windows in the living room, so the room does not seems to be in complete darkness.

It could be the dark wood outside the window that deepen the fear in her heart.

She is still hesitating to go back or not. The footsteps seems to be getting closer and closer to her. She clenched her hand in silence. She felt something standing behind her when she started screaming and shaking…… “Ya ah…..!”

  1. Oh no, the screaming. It always makes me jump.
    The power’s out; she’s making the horror movie in her mind. When the power goes out, I get uncomfortable from lack of air conditioning, and all worried about he state of my refrigerated and frozen foods. Some of us don’t have time to be scared of the dark – not when my milk is getting warm, and my popsicles are melting.
