“You’re Falling Dust? I’m Fei Yan, introduced here by Wind Whisper.”
“I’m a level 10 Assassin and have yet to complete a specialized mission.”
After listening to all the self-introductions, Chu Qi added her to the team. After sharing the mission, he began to investigate.
The two of them arrived outside the mayor’s house. Chu Qi told Fei Yan to stop.
“Stay here and keep watch. If anyone comes, send me a message.”
Fei Yan’s eyes revealed confusion, and she hurriedly pulled Chu Qi, who was about to enter.
“You’re a Summoner. How are you going to find out about this? I’m an Assassin. I have the ability to silence my steps, let me go.”
Chu Qi didn’t explain too much. He only shared the effects of Vanishing Step with her.
Then, he turned and entered the mayor’s house.
Only Fei Yan was left behind in shock.
Half an hour ago, the mayor, who was in the living room, had disappeared. The place was empty, and only the lights were lit.
When Chu Qi was guarding outside, he didn’t see him go out, so there must be a secret room or a secret passage to the outside in the mayor’s house.
Chu Qi moved slowly, trying his best not to make any sound.
The mayor’s house was not very big. There were only two or three rooms.
Chu Qi came to the study room. The words on the wall attracted his attention.
There was a red circle drawn around the words’ Window ‘.
Chu Qi came to the window. Through the window, he was facing the teleportation formation.
Suddenly, a strange sound came from under the table. Chu Qi hurriedly held his breath and went to a corner.
At this moment, the effects of Chu Qi’s Vanishing Step had already ended. The cooldown was still 20 seconds.
The table in the study moved outwards, revealing the secret door below.
The secret door opened and a pair of dry hands stretched out. Then, the entire body came into the study.
Chu Qi saw that the cooldown time for Vanishing Step was up, so he used it again.
Chu Qi slowly moved to the door of the study. The face of that withered person was the mayor’s!
Chu Qi checked the mayor’s attributes.
[Andoine Weasley (Soul-sucking Ghost)]
There was a difference of levels between them as high as ten levels, so Chu Qi could only see his name and his current state.
Andoine seemed to sense Chu Qi’s investigation and looked over.
The empty place made him look around in confusion. Chu Qi also left the study.
Ding! [Investigation] Stage one completed, reward: 5000 experience points.
“Ding! Stage two mission: [Eliminate evil for the people] has been unlocked.”
[Eliminate evil for the people]
Mission Description: Destroy or save the Soul-sucking Ghost.
To the current Chu Qi, even if his attributes crushed players at the same level, it was still too difficult for enemies 10 levels higher than him.
Chu Qi saw that the chance of winning was very slim, so he directly retreated. The moment he went out, the effect of the [Vanishing Step] disappeared.
Outside the door, Fei Yan saw Chu Qi and hurriedly asked, “How is it? Did you get anything?”
The bird also received the notification for the second phase of the mission and hurriedly asked about the situation.
Chu Qi wiped the sweat on his forehead and said what he saw.
“Soul-sucking Ghost? What kind of creature is that? It’s actually a level 20 one. No wonder we only needed to investigate.”
Seeing that there was no other way, Chu Qi went to the hotel and got two rooms.
“I’ll go to the cathedral tomorrow to understand the news. It’s already so late today, and I can’t find any clues.”
Lying on the bed in the inn, Chu Qi began to recall the memories of his previous life.
In his memory, there was a thread that specialized in talking about Soul-sucking Ghosts.
Monster Description: Typically, it’s a monster near the Door to Hell. It can transform creatures weaker than itself into Soul-sucking Ghosts.
In the dark, they could use their full strength, but they would also reveal their true colors.
During the day, the Soul-sucking Ghost only had 50% of its original attributes and could transform into a human.
Thinking back to everything, Chu Qi felt glad for his choice.
If he had just made a move, he would probably have been destroyed until not even scraps were left.
He would only have the strength to fight when he had the chance in the daytime.
After having a plan in his heart, Chu Qi began to sleep.
In the morning, when the first ray of sunlight hit the roof, Chu Qi woke up.
He called Fei Yan and went to the church.
Even though most of the shops were not open yet, the streets were still empty.
However, there were already many people gathered in the church.
“Honorable Father, I encountered a Soul-sucking Ghost. My strength is not enough to defeat him. I hope to receive help.”
After finding the priest in the crowd, Chu Qi asked a question.
When the priest heard Chu Qi’s words, his originally sincere face suddenly became serious.
After chasing away the surrounding people, Chu Qi and Fei Yan arrived at a small room.
“Soul-sucking Ghost? This demon will bring about a huge disaster if he stays in this town. Where did you guys encounter him?”
“At the mayor’s house.”
“This is impossible! The mayor is the strongest person in the town. How could he have become a Soul-sucking Ghost?!”
Chu Qi’s words had just been said when he was strongly disagreed by the priest.
“What if it really did happen?”
Chu Qi’s following words made the priest lose his composure.
“This… This… If the mayor is a Soul-sucking Ghost, how can the three of us defeat him?”
The priest had already shown signs of fear. Chu Qi knew that he wouldn’t help him face the Soul-sucking Ghost.
“My teammates and I are enough. I just want you to tell us where the mayor will often appear in the daytime.”
The priest hesitated for a while before finally telling Chu Qi about the three locations. Then, he took out a cross from a nearby cabinet.
“This cross was left behind by a missionary. When he says there are demons he can’t deal with, this cross will help you.”
With that, the priest walked out and led the believers to leave after praying.
Chu Qi looked at the cross, and his attributes appeared in front of his eyes.
Item Description: When the devil is weak, insert it into its body and it can directly seal the devil.
With the cross in hand, Chu Qi came to the training ground in the forest. As expected, the mayor was here.
Without saying a word, Chu Qi summoned the skeleton warriors and the skeleton archers.
A dark mark hit the defenseless mayor.
The mayor was awakened by the attack and looked at the person.
“It’s you again! Looks like you already know. Then die here!”
Andoine picked up the huge sword, stamped his feet, and jumped towards Chu Qi at an extremely fast speed.
