Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 2 Book of Xun – Chapter 48 Devils Night (2) Translator: PandaWu Editor: DPalmz QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 48 Devils Night (2) I wasn’t sure if it was a placebo or not, but after Wen Jiubo kissed me, the suppression I felt in my chest released and I could breathe normally again. But before I had the chance to feel relief, we came across a scene that stunned me. I didn’t know when so many horrible and freaky demons appeared out of the fog. They strolled in different directions but weirdly, they moved at the same measured pace. Some demons walked, some crawled, and others flew. Meanwhile, the air was filled with a strong, rotten smell. It stank of rotten eggs and brined meat, mixed with a large can of Surströmming. I covered my nose in an attempt to not throw up. On the other hand, Wen Jiubo seemed to be quite familiar with them all. He kept hold of my hand and whispered into my ear, “Let’s move.” “Wait…” Before I could finish my sentence, Wen Jiubo pulled me close and led me through the demons. “No matter what you see or hear, don’t make a sound. Just act as naturally as you can,” Wen Jiubo whispered. That’s easier said than done! The cloying stink became stronger as more and...Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 2 Book of Xun – Chapter 47 Devil’s Night (1) Translator: PandaWu Editor: DPalmz QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 47 Devil’s Night (1) “Earthbound spirits?” I was curious. “Do you mean there are many demons here?” “Correct. If I’m right, what happened at school is related to it.” Wen Jiubo stood up and put the coffin lid back. He dusted off his hands and said, “Let’s go back, it’s already past midnight, it’s dangerous to stay here.” I nodded, then grabbed onto a big tree nearby and climbed out of the pit. However, the minute I was out, I was struck dumb by what I saw. “What’s wrong?” Bai came near, but he was also baffled when he saw what had happened. I didn’t know when a thick fog rose in this place. It was so dense that you could cut it with a knife. I could barely see my hand in front of my face. “This…what’s happening?” I muttered, “There’s not supposed to be fog was here this season.” “No, something is wrong.” Bai arched his body and all his hair stood on end, “This is no ordinary fog.” As I was about to turn around, I suddenly saw something that almost scared me to death. A giant demon, more than two meters tall, was strolling out of the thick fog....Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 2 Book of Xun – Chapter 46 Demon’s Grave Translator: PandaWu Editor: DPalmz QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 46 Demon’s Grave My jaw dropped, but Wen Jiubo continued, “Do you remember the pattern of the floor tiles?” My mind went blank momentarily, I couldn’t recall. Human memory was strange, the floor was something I saw every day, but I couldn’t remember the pattern on it when he suddenly asked. “It’s like this.” Wen Jiubo grasped my hand and drew a circle in my palm, then finished with an arch inside the circle. “It’s a bagua.” (TL note: The Bagua is eight symbols arranged in an octagon. It is used in Taoist cosmology to represent the fundamental principles of reality.) I quickly recalled the pattern and nodded, “You’re right, it is a bagua.” Wen Jiubo grinned, letting go my hand. “But it’s interesting. It’s very interesting, isn’t it, Gu Yu?” “What’s interesting?” “You.” Wen Jiubo looked at me and crossed his arms. The corners of his mouth curved up. “It seems that all these things are about you; all these weird things can be traced back to you. Don’t you think that’s interesting?” Before I could reply, Bai interrupted us. “Mr. Wen!” Bai scampered out of the grove with his four short but agile limbs. “What did you find?” Wen Jiubo looked at...Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 2 Book of Xun – Chapter 45 Graveyard On Campus Translator: PandaWu Editor: DPalmz QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 45 Graveyard On Campus I felt a little depressed. Wen Jiubo was correct, it was an old case and nobody wanted to redress it. The difficulty of reopening the case would be enormous. “I’m suffocating to death here!” Bai, who was hiding beneath my clothes, suddenly popped out. He complained, “Boring! Who is this girl who died years ago? What is this dream? I don’t understand what you’re talking about at all. I wouldn’t have come with you if I knew.” I glanced at the ferret. “Of course, if I knew in advance, I wouldn’t bring you with me. You can’t help me at all!” Wen Jiubo started to talk before Bai could quarrel with me. “But, thanks to the teacher, I think I know what’s happening at the university now,” announced Wen Jiubo with a meaningful smile on his face. “Really?” I was surprised. “As I said before, there is a simple law of cause and effect. Now, if we can recognize this ‘effect,’ it will lead us to the cause.” Wen Jiubo’s confidence didn’t seem fake, on the contrary, I was familiar with this look, which only appeared when he was a hundred percent sure. “So, what should we do now?”...Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 2 Book of Xun – Chapter 44 Searching For The Truth Translator: PandaWu Editor: DPalmz QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 44 Searching For The Truth I didn’t know what to say to make her feel better, “I’m sorry for your loss” was the only thing I could think of. “I heard someone in the Humanities department died like this, but I never thought it would happen to Xuetao!” Jiang Ping shouted, her voice thick with emotion. “She’s such a good girl, why did this happen to her?” I patted her back, trying to calm her down. I waited patiently until she stopped sniffling. “Do you live in the same dorm with Li Xuetao?” Jiang Ping nodded, wiping her tears with a tissue. “Can you tell me, when did your girlfriend encounter the ghost?” I asked. Unexpectedly, Jiang Ping paused for a second before asking, “Encounter the ghost? What ghost?” I was confused. “You don’t know? The ghost haunting the Humanities department, it’s said that someone hears knocking at midnight and when they open the door, they see a horrible ghost. After they wake up, however, their roommates say they never heard any knocking. You don’t know?” Jiang Ping shook her head, confused. “No, I don’t know. Xuetao never mentioned it to us.” “She never mentioned it to you?” I frowned. “That means,...Read More
