CW: Attempted Sexual Assault
Gu Xizhou didn’t think that investigating would yield such results after Ji Ji disappeared. Si Yu’s reasoning was very clear. The supernatural world was beyond comprehension, but if heaven was introduced it would all connect.
Now the question was——Who did heaven want to use him to kill?
Gu Xizhou unconsciously glanced at Si Yu.
Noticing Gu Xizhou’s gaze, Si Yu’s lips quirked upward, and he asked, “Are you okay?”
Gu Xizhou was surprised and asked, “You don’t think it’s strange? The supernatural world is connected to reality.”
“Not really.” Maybe feeling that his response was a little lackluster, Si Yu explained, “I had a faint feeling it might be like this based on my experiences in the mission worlds, like after finishing some, I felt they were similar. I also heard you talk about the ‘chains’ after speculating about this.”
Gu Xizhou understood that Si Yu had already thought of this possibility but didn’t have the means to confirm that the supernatural world was connected to reality until Gu Xizhou told him about Gu Qing, Zhou Xinyue, and Tong Jia’s resurrection. Then, Si Yu could completely verify his conjecture.
“The chains represent fate, that our fates are under its control. It can entirely control our destiny to have us complete something.” Gu Xizhou’s face showed a worried expression for the first time. Everyone’s life or death was under its control.
Si Yu lowered his gaze and didn’t answer Gu Xizhou’s question. He took a step forward and put his chin on Gu Xizhou’s shoulder, embracing him, and said softly, “Are you afraid?”
Gu Xizhou pondered seriously, then answered, “Probably. When I think that my fate is under someone else’s control, and I can’t decide my own life or death, anyone would be afraid.”
Si Yu held him and didn’t speak.
They returned to Ningqing smoothly and had just left the airport when the sky abruptly turned dark.
“I have to go home. Yesterday I left suddenly, and they might be worried about me,” said Gu Xizhou after some thought.
A low laugh entered his ears. Si Yu’s dark eyes stared deeply at Gu Xizhou for a moment, then he said, “Okay, rest well. Call me if anything happens. I’ll be there any time. I’ll send you back.”
Gu Xizhou nodded earnestly at Si Yu. For the first time, he suddenly felt that being resurrected by ‘it’ wasn’t all terrible. At least he met Si Yu.
Gu Xizhou sat in the passenger seat and grabbed the side of Si Yu’s collar. He leaned up and kissed him. They both began to breathe heavier, and Si Yu returned the kiss, deepening it with his hands on Gu Xizhou’s jaw.
His breath was scorching hot, and the deeper their kiss went, the heavier it got. They craned their necks, pressing their lips together and exchanging sweet breaths in the narrow space inside the car. Gu Xizhou felt his body burning hot and wanted to do something when he suddenly caught sight of his reflection in the mirror.
He suddenly pushed Si Yu. After getting pushed, Si Yu knocked right into the car roof. With a blank, guileless expression, he said, “Again, what’s wrong?”
Gu Xizhou: Did this guy like Ji Ji’s shell or him!
“Nothing…” Gu Xizhou stiffly moved his line of sight and said, “Hurry up and drive.”
Si Yu kneaded his forehead. Gu Xizhou was simply going to anger him to death. “Okay okay okay, I’ll take you back first.”
The car drove slowly, and Si Yu parked downstairs at Gu Xizhou’s home.
Gu Xizhou hesitated and said, “I’ll go up first.”
Si Yu ‘en’ed. “Okay.”
Once he got home, the retired Zhou Xinyue saw Gu Xizhou and greeted him with a few words. Then, she finally said the words she’d been holding back. “You child, if Wang Ao hadn’t called me, I still wouldn’t know you handled a murder case two days ago. Son, aren’t you under too much pressure recently? If you don’t want to do it, resign quickly. Your mother can support you!”
“You want me to live?” Gu Xizhou came back to hear Zhou Xinyue say this and immediately laughed.

Gu Xizhou: So it turns out Ji Ji’s Land Rover was bought with stock dividends; that swindler Ji Ji fooled me.
The next day.
Gu Xizhou lay in bed in a daze. The bedroom door suddenly opened.
Gu Xizhou’s brows furrowed and he automatically said, “Ji Ji, I want a drink of water.”
Gu Xizhou had just finished speaking when he turned over and saw Zhou Xinyue standing in the doorway, frowning at him. Then, she left to fill a cup of water and returned, handing it to Gu Xizhou.
Gu Xizhou took the cup and scratched his head a little foolishly. “Thank you,” he said.
Zhou Xinyue felt Gu Xizhou’s forehead. “Silly child, still being polite with your mom. Come and eat.”
“En!” Gu Xizhou nodded.
After Zhou Xinyue left the room, Gu Xizhou looked around the empty room, checking one more time to see if Ji Ji had completely faded away.
Gu Xizhou should be resting at home, but today was Lao Guo’s 49th birthday at the station, so a few days ago he said he’d ask everyone to have a meal together after work, even if his birthday had passed.
Gu Xizhou looked at the time and quickly drove to work after calling out a greeting to Zhou Xinyue.
Sitting in the car, Gu Xizhou waited for a moment and saw a few coworkers leave the station. Everyone clearly recognized Gu Xizhou’s car. Xiang Yuan walked over and knocked on Gu Xizhou’s window.
Gu Xizhou unlocked the doors, and Xiang Yuan immediately pulled open the door and took the passenger seat and stretched, not forgetting to tease Gu Xizhou. “Lao Gu, what’s going on with you these days? You actually asked for leave; it’s not like you. You’re a workaholic.”
“I’m a little tired, and there are no cases, so I wanted to rest. What’s wrong?” said Gu Xizhou, glancing at Xiang Yuan.
Xiang Yuan shook his head. “It’s just unusual.”
“Quick, follow Lao Guo’s car. Don’t lose them,” said Xiang Yuan. Then, he took out his phone and showed it to Gu Xizhou. “Look at my daughter wearing a little skirt! Isn’t she adorable?”
“En.” Gu Xizhou continued to drive with a blank face. Fang Zhi, in the back seat, put his fist to his mouth and let out a cough.
“Ke ke ke.” Fang Zhi said, “Xiang Ge, if you’re going to show all of us one by one, it’s better to just send it out on your Moments.”
Hearing Fang Zhi’s words, several coworkers covered their mouths and laughed. Today, Xiang Yuan showed his daughter’s photo to all of them in the police station one by one. Who would’ve thought this silly person was actually a forensic investigator, the kind that touched corpses every day?
Xiang Yuan had a disdainful expression. “That’s stupid!”
Waiting for them to drive to where they were eating, Gu Xizhou pulled out his phone and chatted with Si Yu. He flipped to his Moments and saw that Xiang Yuan had posted something. It was a picture of his daughter. He couldn’t help the twitching of his lips. Stupid indeed.
Police officers rarely had time for this kind of leisurely meal. There would inevitably be a few busy cases. It took great effort to have time today for so many people to get together, aside from Wang Ao, who was at a meeting in the city. Even Ma Qi came.
Ma Qi sat beside Gu Xizhou and saw everyone eating passionately. He said, “Did you get the information? Did you discover anything?”
Gu Xizhou glanced at him and simply said that he’d found something but didn’t mention Gu Qing’s resurrection. Then, he brought up Si Yu’s speculation.
“It-it could be like that.” Ma Qi very easily accepted Gu Xizhou saying ‘heaven’ actually existed. He looked around and whispered, “I actually don’t think it’s that strange.”
“En…” Gu Xizhou narrowed his eyes.
“Ke ke…” Fang Zhi was also listening beside him and coughed lightly. This wouldn’t be considered spreading feudal superstition, right…
After they ate, everyone got noisy and wanted to go to a bar for drinks. In fact, everyone had gone before, but they were there to enforce the law. They chose a bar with a relatively good environment and began to drink.
Xiang Yuan shouted about having Gu Xizhou roll dice to drink, and Gu Xizhou cast a sidelong glance at him.
“Heh.” He brought out a pair of dice with a ‘you’re courting death again’ expression. He cast them on the table, and they were actually a ‘double 6’.
“Lao Gu, how’d you get so lucky all of a sudden? You’re getting better and better.” Xiang Yuan drank a little too much. He grabbed Gu Xizhou’s hands. “You have golden hands; they’re too awesome.”
Gu Xizhou slapped away Xiang Yuan’s fondling hands and said, “Yi, you’re making me sick. You don’t like me, do you?”
Xiang Yuan rolled his eyes high to heaven. “Blegh, Lao Gu, what did Si Yu do to you to turn you into this? I’m a steel straight man! Straight man!”
Gu Xizhou slapped Xiang Yuan’s forehead. It obviously hurt him, and Xiang Yuan instinctively reached up to cradle his forehead.
Xiang Yuan rubbed his forehead. “Why?”
“People say that one pregnancy makes you stupid for three years. Now I suspect that it wasn’t your wife who birthed your daughter, but it was you. Is your brain full of holes? I was joking, and you’re taking it too seriously.”
Xiang Yuan’s expression went stern, and he said, “Shut up, I still really want to help my wife give birth!”
Gu Xizhou lost his composure at Xiang Yuan’s response.
The other officers gradually got drunk one after another, and no one noticed Gu Xizhou, Fang Zhi, and Ma Qi slowly vanish into a corner. After chatting for a bit, Gu Xizhou took out a slip of paper for Ma Qi with a frown.
“What is this?” Ma Qi took the paper and squinted at it.
“I met someone in a mission world before. I want you to help me investigate him, but don’t contact him. Here’s the phone number he gave me; his surname should be Li.”
Ma Qi didn’t see Gu Xizhou’s hesitation. He nodded and said grimly, “Okay, I’ll have them check it out.”
“Be careful, he has a very unusual prop. I don’t know whether it can be used in the outside world.”
Gu Xizhou painstakingly warned him again and again. Even if he believed in Ma Qi’s morals, he didn’t directly tell him about Li Yan’s prop’s function. Li Yan’s prop was too special.
“Okay, no problem.” Ma Qi saw that Gu Xizhou didn’t talk about it in detail and nodded in response.
After waiting a moment, Ma Qi looked at the time and told everyone to go home. They looked at the time. It was about ten o’clock, so they should go back. Who knew how many people would have to go back to kneel on a washboard.
Gu Xizhou’s car was parked outside. He decided to call a substitute driver. After waiting a while, he saw the substitute was a young man.
Sitting in the passenger seat, Gu Xizhou closed his eyes. He was dizzy.
“Ge, give me your address and I’ll drive there,” said the young Xiao Ge.
“Oh…” Gu Xizhou weakly recited his address.
“Ge, is anyone home?”
Gu Xizhou scrutinized him. Maybe because his expression was too fierce, the driver raised his hands and explained, “I saw you’ve been drinking. If no one’s home, I can help you upstairs.”
“There is. No need to trouble you. I can get upstairs on my own,” Gu Xizhou said indifferently.
Gu Xizhou didn’t notice the other person’s slightly disappointed tone. He leaned against the window and let his eyes droop for a while.
“Ge, wake up. Drink some water if you’re not feeling well.”
Gu Xizhou stared blankly with half closed eyes, wondering where the water would come from. The driver seemed to read his mind and elaborated, “I just bought some. I noticed you looked unwell.”
Gu Xizhou said, “Oh, thank you.”
After Gu Xizhou twisted open the water and drank a few mouthfuls, he put down the water and turned to brace his chin on his hand, watching the scenery outside the window.
For some reason, Gu Xizhou’s body felt a little hot. Even opening the window and letting in the cool night air didn’t help. He pulled at the collar of his shirt.
“Ge, are you alright?”
“It’s hot.” Gu Xizou’s mouth twitched. “I don’t know what’s going on.”
“Ge.” The substitute driver suddenly stopped the car. He turned to look at Gu Xizhou and said, “Let me help you.”
Gu Xizhou was dazed. “What?”
“Like this,” the man said, reaching over and putting his hand on Gu Xizhou’s crotch and stroking lightly. “Ge, aren’t you hot. How about I help you handle it?”
The other person smirked, and his smile was almost brilliant. His conceited expression couldn’t be hidden. Even though Gu Xizhou was surprised, he finally realized what was happening: he, a man, was drugged by his substitute driver!
Gu Xizhou couldn’t help but swear. “I’ll. Fuck. Your. Mom!”
But who knew the other man would just look at him brazenly, like he was in a very good mood, and wink at him, saying, “Ge, your way of swearing is really attractive!”
“Fuck!” This guy was shameless. Gu Xizhou endured his body’s desire and wanted to open the car door and get out, but the driver locked the doors in the next second.
Gu Xizhou glared coldly as the horny substitute driver hurriedly shed his clothes, peeling his leather pants from his skin. When he turned around and reached over to touch him, Gu Xizhou flipped his hand over and took out his handcuffs, slapping them onto the slutty driver’s wrists. In a low voice, he said, “Awesome, ah, drugging a police officer?”
“P-police officer?” The man looked dumbfounded.
Gu Xizhou scolded him with a ‘stupid cunt’ and then used his phone to dial 110.
They weren’t far from the nearest station and the police arrived quickly. After hearing Gu Xizhou’s description, the officers choked back laughter. Finally, they weren’t able to restrain themselves and laughed out loud.
“Leader Gu, hahaha… Aiya, that… that stup-… Team leader Gu, you were drugged, is it a problem? How about we call 120 for you?”
“I can’t… laughing to death…”
Gu Xizhou was originally good looking. Plus, he was very young for a police captain. Every year he attended the Arbor Day meeting, and many police officers knew him. As luck would have it, all of the officers on night duty tonight knew who he was.
Gu Xizhou: ……
“No need, someone’s coming to pick me up,” said Gu Xizhou. The corners of his mouth rose. “Oh, he’s here.”
Si Yu rushed over and saw Gu Xizhou, sitting in the station with a flushed face. Gu Xizhou followed Si Yu to leave. They sat in Gu Xizhou’s off-road vehicle and drove for a while until they reached a deserted place. Si Yu coughed lightly and asked, “Are you okay now?”
“‘Okay’ my ass…”
Si Yu was silent for a moment. Then, he suddenly drew close. His breath swept across Gu Xizhou’s ears as he spoke. “So you called me to extinguish the flames.”
Gu Xizhou: “……”
Si Yu parked the car and moved in front of Gu Xizhou, kissing him lightly at first, then slowly deeper. The slight sound of gasping breaths filled the air, and his black eyes reflected Gu Xizhou’s calm appearance.
“Gu Xizhou, I won’t be polite.” Si Yu held his breath and whispered in Gu Xizhou’s ear. “Don’t regret it.”
“Regret?” Gu Xizhou raised an eyebrow and glanced at him. He said, “Regret what? Actually, Si Yu, I really like you, but I don’t know whether you like me or…”
“It’s you, your soul,” Si Yu brushed over the shell of Gu Xizhou’s ear and whispered to him, like he knew exactly what Gu Xizhou was thinking.
Si Yu gently stroked Gu Xizhou’s soft hair, his expression earnest as he said, hoarsely, “You gave me my life. Now I place it in your hands once more.”
“Isn’t that a little exaggerated?” Gu Xizhou asked with not quite a smile, hand intertwined with Si Yu’s.
His deep, husky voice was indescribably heavy, and his eyes reflected Gu Xizhou’s image.
“I’ll cherish it,” Gu Xizhou said earnestly.
The author has something to say: I… the key point? ? ? ——You gave me my life. Now I place it in your hands once more
