Shen Dongqing blinked his eyes and found that he was floating in a river. He could float on the water without moving at first, but now as soon as he moved a little, he fell down.

He couldn’t swim, so he fluttered his arms wildly, but this made him sink faster. He simply gave up the struggle and let himself float in the water.

Halfway through, when he was about to float to the shore, something suddenly wrapped around his calf and started pulling him down.

Shen Dongqing was caught off guard, most of his body fell into the water, he struggled for a while but couldn’t break free, so he simply kicked it.

Vaguely, he heard the sound of someone spitting blood, and the thing that was holding him loosened, and then became tighter again.

Shen Dongqing choked on the water, feeling a little upset, so he got out of the water and took a deep breath before diving into the water.

The water of this river was clear, and you could see the dancing aquatic plants below and a pale face flashing past among them. No, those were not aquatic plants, but human hair, one strand happened to be wrapped around Shen Dongqing’s leg, and the others rushed over, trying to pull him deeper into the water.

Bubbles popped out one by one, making a gurgling sound.

Shen Dongqing was about to surface from the water to take a breath, when he caught a glimpse of a pale face rushing towards him out of the corner of her eyes, the two of them almost made close contact.

Shen Dongqing stopped his movements and looked at the woman’s face.

Water Ghost:?

According to the common routine, shouldn’t this person be startled by it, then struggle wildly, and thus be dragged into the water by it as a stand-in? Why did something seem wrong now?

Before the water ghost could figure it out, he kicked her head on.

The water ghost spun and flew out, leaving a series of bubbles on the bottom of the water. Its face was distorted, and it seemed that this kick almost killed it again.

Shen Dongqing tore away the hair wrapped around his legs, taught himself how to swim, floated to the surface of the water, and slowly swam towards the shore.

It was just that he swam too slowly, and after swimming for a long time, there was still such a little difference in the distance to the shore.


A human head floated faintly out of the water.

This river was very remote, and it usually took a long time to wait for an unlucky person. The water ghost did not want to give up this opportunity, and silently watched this person, waiting for the opportunity to pull him into the water.

Waiting and waiting, Shen Dongqing turned around abruptly.

The water ghost was startled and withdrew half of its head back into the water, leaving only seaweed-like black hair floating on it.

Shen Dongqing patted the surface of the water: “Come and help.”

Water Ghost:?

Shen Dongqing: “Don’t you see that I can’t swim?”

The water ghost was confused.

Was this a normal reaction to seeing a ghost? It had only been a ghost for a short time, don’t lie to it…

Shen Dongqing said impatiently: “Not coming here yet?”

The water ghost remembered the kick just now, and with a jerk, it moved over with a swipe of its arms, as commanded by Shen Dongqing, and after a while, the two joined forces and Shen Dongqing finally landed on the shore.

“Bah!” Shen Dongqing spat out a mouthful of river water and collapsed on the bank.

The water ghost looked at him with deep doubts.

Wait… wasn’t it going to grab a stand-in? How did he send people ashore?

The water ghost suddenly reacted, and quietly stretched out its hand to drag Shen Dongqing back into the river, but it was discovered when it stretched out its hands, and it suddenly froze in place, not daring to move.

Shen Dongqing saw that the water ghost stretched out his hand, so he made a gesture, then he went to hold his hand and shook it: “Thank you.”

The water ghost was at a loss again, it withdrew its hand that still had the warmth of a living person, and floated on the water, watching this strange person go about his business.

Shen Dongqing brushed his wet hair and saw some odds and ends on the shore. He picked them up and looked at it. There was a mobile phone, a suicide note, a car key and two bank cards.

He first opened the suicide note, which should have been written by this body’s original owner, and after a random glance, his reason for committing suicide was probably because his family and career was not going well, and even the person he liked was just playing with his feelings, so he couldn’t think of anything but jumping into the river and committing suicide for a while.

“Humans are really complicated.” Shen Dongqing muttered, put away everything, turned his head and saw that water ghost was still staring at him, as if observing humans.

Shen Dongqing tilted his head: “What else do you want to do?”

The water ghost spit out two bubbles.

Shen Dongqing guessed: “You want to reincarnate?”

The water ghost nodded and shook his head, ripples appearing on the surface of the water.

This water ghost was the first person Shen Dongqing met after leaving the game. Oh no, ghost, she even helped him get ashore.

So Shen Dongqing squatted down: “Come here, I will save you.”

The water ghost took a step back silently, it seemed that it was not about to be saved, but about to be dissipated.

Shen Dongqing waited for a while, and seeing that the water ghost was hesitating, he simply stood up: “Forget it.”

Seeing that the person was about to leave, the water ghost swam to the shore again, and stretched out his hands towards Shen Dongqing, Shen Dongqing saved the ghost on the spot.

After the procedure was over, the surface of the river boiled for a while, and then a fresh, plump and beautiful crucian carp popped out.

Shen Dongqing:?

Was this a gift for him?

He looked down at the crucian carp that was still bouncing around, and fell into deep doubts—how should he bring it back?

It may be that the water ghost guessed what he was thinking, and another plastic bag was spit out from the river, just big enough to hold the crucian carp.

When Shen Dongqing finished loading the lively crucian carp, the phone rang suddenly. He took it out and saw the words “Brother Lu” written on the screen.

He connected the phone with the crucian carp in one hand and the phone in the other.

An anxious voice came from the other end of the phone.

“Shen Dongqing, what are you doing? Why are you not here for the recording of the show? Do you want to die!”

After listening to the series of questions, Shen Dongqing only replied: “I don’t want to.”

It may be that his attitude was too indifferent, so Brother Lu on the other end of the phone couldn’t say anything more, so he just said: “Come here quickly, I’m waiting for you!” Shen Dongqing didn’t know where to go, so he sent over a location.

Shen Dongqing thought about it for a moment and felt that this should be the work of the original owner. He occupied the body of the original owner. Naturally, his karma also fell on him, and he couldn’t ignore it. He decided to go to the place that brother Lu said first to have a look.

He swiped his phone and stared blankly at the location that popped up.

How to use this thing?

Fortunately, as a young man in the new era, Shen Dongqing could use all kinds of high technology, so he immediately figured out how to use this navigation. When he saw the destination, it was 11.2 kilometers away from where he was, and he needed to walk for 3 hours. He was dumbfounded.

He didn’t know what bad feng shui place the original owner found. There was not a single car passing by here, and the only car was the car driven by the original owner. The problem was that Shen Dongqing couldn’t drive.

But it didn’t bother Shen Dongqing, he walked around the main road and found the victim in no time, oh no, helpful person.

The appearance of this ghost was a bit scary, his head was bloody, and his brains were stuck to his hair like tofu brains, but none of these could conceal his simple and honest smile.

He squatted in the middle of the road, waiting for a car to pass by, so that it could go up and grab the double.

Shen Dongqing went straight to the dead ghost and handed over the car keys: “Help me drive.”

The dead ghost raised his head, not quite understanding why anyone could see it, but it caught the car key in a daze, and without knowing why, he followed this man away.

Shen Dongqing was not polite at all, he just opened the gate of the passenger seat and sat in it, turned on the navigation to show the dead ghost, and ordered: “I’m going here.”

The dead ghost turned the steering wheel in a daze and started to act as the driver.

Outside the venue where the program was being recorded.

Brother Lu was running around in circles, very anxious. This opportunity was won by him with great difficulty. He did not expect that the artist under his command was so unreliable. He disappeared as soon as he said he was missing. There was no sign at all. Finally, he got in touch. But now he disappeared again.

He stretched his neck to look around, and finally saw the little BMW at the end of the road, and immediately heaved a sigh of relief, and went up to meet it.

“Where did you go…” Brother Lu said as he was about to pull the door of the driver side.

Da – the door of the passenger side was indeed opened, and Shen Dongqing walked out from inside.

Brother Lu was stunned stupid.

Why did he come out of the passenger side? When he lowered his head, he saw only the empty seat.

Where was the driver? Was this driverless?

Shen Dongqing rushed to the dead ghost and waved: “Thank you.”

The dead ghost nodded honestly.

Brother Lu was confused: “No, what are you doing?”

Shen Dongqing: “Thanking the driver.”

“You hired a replacement driver.” Brother Lu naturally helped him fill in the unscientific parts, turned his head and muttered to Shen Dongqing, “How did you get your clothes wet?”

Coming here at this point, the clothes on Shen Dongqing’s body were still wet, and there were various special products from the river hanging on it.

“I fell into the river.” Shen Dongqing said calmly.

Brother Lu: “Why are you so careless? Where did your fish come from?”

Shen Dongqing: “Filled in the river.”

Brother Lu:?

This logic sounded fine, but it always felt like something was wrong.

Seeing that the recording of the program was about to start, Brother Lu didn’t have time to check out these small details, so he quickly pushed the person in, and said: “Go to the dressing room, take a shower and change, hurry up.”

Shen Dongqing finished taking a shower and after he finished changing the clothes, he looked like a clean and fresh young man again.

Brother Lu waited at the door of the dressing room, and greeted people as soon as they came out, and frowned halfway: “Why are you still carrying this fish?”

Shen Dongqing: “Ready to eat.”

The fish was thrown away as Brother Lu said, “Do you think this is a vegetable market? When the show is over, I can buy you a hundred catties of fish.”

“This is not an ordinary fish.” Shen Dongqing said seriously. Brother Lu hesitantly glanced at the crucian carp in the bag, and speculated: “Could it be that eating it can strengthen your body and prolong your life?”

“Fish full of gratitude are different from those ordinary fish.”

Brother Lu: I really believe your evil.

“Okay, okay, I’ll carry it for you, you go in quickly!”

Shen Dongqing said “Oh”, obediently, and was urged to come to the show. He looked at the busy people and asked curiously: “What am I doing?”

Brother Lu: “Have you lost your mind? You don’t even remember this?”

Shen Dongqing weighed whether it was better to tell the truth or not to tell the truth. So, he finally chose to say, “I fell into the river.”

So wasn’t it normal to forget things in the water?

Brother Lu suddenly felt powerless.

Today’s Shen Dongqing didn’t act like a monster, didn’t play tricks, just talked so obediently, but…why did it feel more tiring than when he was being a monster before?
