270 Anything Can Be Solved with a Swing of the Hammer
Seeing Chen Ge in the doctor's outfit, Gu Feiyu took an involuntary step back. He recovered seconds later and quickly replied, "Yes, the three students all gave the Haunted House five stars in front of me. They said that they had a great time and hope you won't make it too difficult for that Haunted House actor."
"They had a great time?" Chen Ge nodded. "Well, as long as they had fun."
"Brother Chen, what is it with those two visitors? They've both fainted; is it really alright?" Gu Feiyu added one last question after some hesitation. "Also, what did the students mean by the Haunted House employee?"
"It's nothing important, Xiao Gu. If you want to work here, then you need to be familiar with these things. By the way, I need you to learn some first-aid skills in the future." Chen Ge had Gu Feiyu carry Wei Wu and Kong Xiangming. "Now, we lock them in the dressing room first."
"First-aid skill? Lock them in the dressing room?" Gu Feiyu's head was covered in cold sweat. For some reason, he felt like he had entered a trap.
"They're not visitors." Chen Ge knew that Xiao Gu had misunderstood him, so he explained roughly, "The New Century Park is bouncing back, and that is tied to this huge promotion the Haunted House is having. Some people are not happy that we're coming back and so sent their men to come sabotage us."
"Oh, is that so?" Xiao Gu nodded seriously. "Life in the big city sure is complicated."
Xiao Gu carried Wei Wu, and Chen Ge dragged Kong Xiangming. The two stopped at the entrance to the Sealed Classroom. "There are still two more visitors in the Haunted House. They should be in the scenario on the right. Stay here and wait for me. I'll be back in a minute."
Chen Ge left Kong Xiangming behind and ran into the female dorm. Gu Feiyu stood outside the classroom, and for some reason, he felt like someone was looking at him from inside the classroom.
"Brother Chen, wait for me! I'm going with you!" They had just entered the corridor on the right when they heard the sound of argument. The visitor by the name of Na Na was still at the height of her temper. She was adamant about breaking up with the man. Her fury had completely nulled her sense of fear.
What are these two doing? Fighting inside a Haunted House?
The two visitors stood in the middle of the corridor, and there were no other scare points around them. They were locked in a deep argument and did not seem like they were going to stop anytime soon.
"Brother Chen, please slow down." Gu Feiyu half-tow and half-dragged the two members from the ghost stories society with him.
"Why did you follow me?"
"I'm worried about you, so I came to help." Gu Feiyu looked ahead and changed the topic. "The two are in a serious argument. Shall we go help?"
"Do you know them personally? How do you expect us to help?" Chen Ge swung the hammer. He felt dealing with them was easier. At least things could be solved with a swing of the hammer.
"But they're arguing so vehemently, will this be good for us? After all, we're inside the Haunted House. If people hear of this, it might influence our reputation." Gu Feiyu stood behind Chen Ge. Eavesdropping on a couple's argument inside a Haunted House still did not seem that moral to him.
"If these two really want to break up, they wouldn't have let this drag on for half an hour already." Chen Ge retrieved the skin mask, put it on, picked up the hammer, and headed for the couple.
Before he got close, he saw the girl shove the man back and snuck into the bedroom where Pen Spirit resided alone. Then she locked the door. The man slammed on the door repeatedly. The woman cried inside the room, but she did not open the door.
"Yan Na Na!" The woman locked the door and windows. The man called her name outside the window, but the woman seemed insistent on ending this relationship.
"Chen Ziming, we met each other inside a Haunted House, so we'll end it here today, okay? Two years, six months, and one day, thank you for everything that you've given me."
"I really don't understand why you're breaking up with me! Am I not good to you?"
"You're very good; it's all my fault. Are you satisfied?"
The argument kept going, and it grated on Chen Ge's ears. He dragged the hammer across the floor and picked up his pace. The footsteps echoed down the corridor. The man outside the door saw Chen Ge. Honestly, he was a little afraid, but his anger had overwhelmed that fear completely. In fact, when he saw Chen Ge get close, he intended to turn his fury onto Chen Ge, who dared to disturb them.
With his finger pointing at Chen Ge, the man's lips were already opening, but before he could make any sound, Chen Ge suddenly charged forward and picked up the hammer to swing at the door's lock!
The wooden door broke into splinters, and the lock flew into the wall, creating a crisp sound.
The pair was completely stunned, especially the man, who was about to say something. When the hammer swung through the air, he could hear the air being sliced through clearly. His lips could not close. The man looked at Chen Ge's skin mask, and his eyes twitched. His body would not listen to his brain's commands.
The woman stopped crying and started to scream.
The man tried to enter the bedroom, but his legs were not moving. His ears hummed, and after he staggered a step back, his body leaned weakly forward.
"Ziming!" The woman ran to grab the man's shoulders. This time, she stood before the man to shield him from Chen Ge.
Chen Ge pulled the hammer out from the hole in the door, and he was feeling rather embarrassed. He had been using the hammer so much recently that he had forgotten how to gauge his strength.
He coughed awkwardly before removing the skin mask. Looking at the two shocked visitors, before the two recovered and their fury returned, he said, "When danger appeared, your partner's first thought wasn't to run but to enter the room to look for you. This shows how much he cares about you."
Chen Ge then turned to tell the male visitor who tripped, "When you fell to the ground, your partner let go of everything to come help you and shield you. If you miss a woman as good as her, you'll regret it for the rest of your life."
His bloodied shirt fluttering in the wind, Chen Ge helped the two get up with a smile.
"You two love each other. No matter what happens, as long as you have that, it's enough." Chen Ge placed the hammer aside. "If you don't believe me, we can play a little game to test it out."
The two visitors were picked up from the floor and arranged by Chen Ge to sit on both side of the chair. They had their fingers intertwined and a ballpoint pen wrapped in cellophane tape within their grasp.
"This Haunted House has been open for years already, so some of the things have gained their own spirit. This ballpoint pen is one of them. You can ask it the question that you wish to be answered inside your heart, and it will give you the answer."
The couple had just woken up from the shock that Chen Ge delivered. They looked into each other's eyes and felt the warmth that came from the other's palm. After a long time, they finally started the Pen Spirit game. "Pen Spirit, Pen Spirit, you are my spirit from my previous life, and I am your spirit in this life. Can you tell me if they love me the most in this world?"
Looking away from the couple, Chen Ge rolled his eyes. He kept giving hints to the Pen Spirit; he needed to send this couple out as soon as possible. Several seconds later, the ballpoint pen started to move, and both visitors captured the surprise in their partner's eyes.
The pen started to move on the paper to write a word. "Yes."
After sending the Pen Spirit away, the game officially ended, but the two visitors had let their hands go.
"Ziming…" The woman apologized softly, and the man went over to pull her into a hug.
"I'll make more time to accompany you in the future!"
"I should have been more understanding."
"It's okay, honey."
"Are you two done?" Chen Ge's hands that gripped the hammer were bursting with veins. He felt like he was going to lose control soon.
"Boss, we're so sorry for creating all this trouble for you." The two visitors finally parted. They apologized and thanked Chen Ge profusely.
"If not for the fact that you two met inside my Haunted House, I wouldn't have cared." Chen Ge put the hammer away. "Good luck in your future. Don't leave any regrets."
After sending the two visitors away, Xiao Gu was shocked. When he saw Chen Ge knock down the door, he had been ready with his phone to call the police. He was surprised by this ending.
"Brother Chen, you're amazing."
"Stop dawdling. Go upstairs and help me get the toolbox, we need to fix this door."
