" Pei Hu! "

Chen Ge was fixing the heads onto the mannequins in the sealed classroom when he suddenly heard a man's scream coming down from the far end of corridor . The scream was a mixture of complicated emotions .

That doesn't sound like the scream of fear . It is mixed with surprise, anger, and terror . Chen Ge fixed the last mannequin and exited the classroom . This batch of visitors sure is energetic .

Pei Hu, who had rushed into Room 303, had his back against the door, and his forehead was covered in cold sweat .

"Damn, Wenlong is still inside the well!" Pei Hu's palms were slick with sweat, and he looked at Wenlong's phone in his grasp . "I've even taken his phone away . The well is so dark, and there seems to be mannequins buried underneath . "

Pei Hu did not dare continue that thought . He looked around the room . Room 303 had retained its original look; there was a bunch of dirty laundry sitting in the middle of the room, but the stench was missing .

"Why would they leave a pile of clothes in the middle of the room? This place gives me the creeps . To be safe, I'll just stand by the door," he mumbled to himself when someone knocked on the door behind him . However, curiously enough, the source of knocking came from the spot that was around his feet .

"People normally wouldn't knock at that spot, so this definitely isn't Wenlong . " The only thing that could walk outside the corridor… other than Wang Wenlong, there was only one other option left . Pei Hu's face fell, and he stared at bottom of the door, which was creating the knocking sound . "It's the head! The mannequin head is knocking on the door!"

The thought caused Pei Hu's legs to go weak . He wanted to lock the door and realized with horror that the lock was merely a decoration . A slight push, and the door would be opened .

"There should be a window inside this room, right? But what if the mannequin head enters the room after I leave the door?" Pei Hu scratched his chin in thought, but it would not work if he just stood there, blocking the door throughout the night either . The knocking continued, and each knock resounded in Pei Hu's head . "I need to figure out a way to get out of here . "

Pei Hu started to look around the room and then walked over the pile of dirty laundry . After an examination of the room, he came up with nothing . "It's a thick cement wall outside the window; there's no exit . Will I have to stay here until the game ends?" Pei Hu stood in the middle of the room . "How did a visit to the Haunted House turn into something like this? The winking mannequin, buried bodies in the well, and a detached head that chases people around . Is the boss a magician? How did he manage all this?"

Before Pei Hu could get an answer, there was a loud bang on the door .

"The force has suddenly increased? Is it the mannequin? Has she found her head?" The thought of it chilled Pei Hu . He looked around, and in the urgency of the moment, he hid inside the bedroom .

"Why doesn't this bedroom even have a door‽" He regretted it after entering the room, but everything was already too late . The only hiding place inside the bedroom was under the bed . He shone the phone underneath the bed, and after seeing that there was not anything weird, he crawled into it .

Please just leave me be! He snuck under the bed, pocketed the phone, and focused his pair of eyes at the room door . The darkened room was very quiet, and the smallest sound was amplified . A few seconds later, the living room door was pushed open . After a tense silence, a very light sound reverberated through the living room .

Sounds like something is rolling on the floor… The thought flashed through Pei Hu's mind, and one second later, his legs froze, and a chill travelled from the balls of his feet to the top of his head . I seemed to have forgotten one thing!

The rolling sound neared, and when Pei Hu turned his head toward the door, a detached mannequin head that was smiling rolled to a stop at the bedroom door!

Two pairs of eyes looked at each other, and time seemed to stop .

Wang Hailong led Xia Meili and Dou Menglu to the female dormitory . Even though Brother Long had cried earlier, before his girlfriend, he had to act tough and calm . He walked ahead of the girls . They looked into the bedrooms before stopping at the one with the Pen Spirit .

"This room looks different . " A few chairs were placed in the middle of the room, and there was a piece of white paper that had something written on it . Brother Long picked up the piece of paper and read it out loud . "The Pen Spirit knows the location of three nametags . "

"No wonder this feels so familiar; it's the Pen Spirit game . " Dou Menglu wandered closer out of curiosity . "I've seen this in the movies many times, but I didn't expect to run into one in real life . "

"It's all fake, just a gimmick . " Wang Hailong tossed the paper back onto the chair . "But we mustn't miss out on three nametags . Do either of you know the rules?"

"I do . " Dou Menglu sat on one of the chairs and had Wang Hailong sit beside her . "Just follow my lead . "

"Could you two be a bit more careful? Playing a game like this inside a Haunted House might attract some unwanted spirit . " Xia Meili stood at the door . Looking at the banter between Dou Menglu and Wang Hailong, she was feeling rather uncomfortable .

"If a Pen Spirit really appears, that would be awesome . I want to ask whether I'll be Brother Long's future wife . " Dou Menglu grinned as she picked up the pen that was glued together with clear tape and held it in the middle .

"Ask away . " Wang Hailong did not seem to mind . Ignoring the fact that Xia Meili was there, he grabbed Dou Menglu's hand directly . Xia Meili pouted, and she turned to walk away . "You two have fun; I'll go take a look around . "

"Don't wander too far, Meili . "

"She knows how to take care of herself . Now, listen to me, Brother Long, there are several taboos to the Pen Spirit game . One, you mustn't ask about death; two, you cannot stop the game abruptly…"

When Xia Meili exited the room, even the air felt fresher . That room stinks of sour sweetness; I hope the Pen Spirit teaches them a lesson .

She walked to the end of the corridor, and the place became even creepier . Xia Meili was about to turn back when she heard Wang Wenlong's scream coming from the other end of the corridor .

What happened? Based on the scream, Wenlong doesn't sound scared but more like he's angry . Xia Meili retraced her steps, but this time, she entered the other corridor .

Where are they? There's another split in the road? Which way should I go? Xia Meili stopped at the junction between the old well and the few rooms from Hai Ming Apartments . She hesitated . Pei Hu has lost his phone, so I should call Wenlong to ask for an explanation .

The phone's ringtone came out from one of Hai Ming Apartments' rooms, but no one answered it .

They're inside one of these rooms? The ringtone sounded weirdly creepy in the Haunted House . Xia Meili ended the call and walked toward the three doors .
