Both of them felt extremely relaxed.
As expected, it was better to lean against a big tree for shade. The two of them even asked for an extra sum of money, which was enough to cover their living expenses for the next period of time.
Yun Gang’s family’s problem of paying back the money had been temporarily solved, but Yun Shan’s family had encountered a new problem.
After Yun Shan’s family had installed the floor warmers, they had actually been haunted!
The reason was that Yun Yang had gone out to the bathroom in the middle of the night, but he had seen a faint glow in the kitchen.
Yun Yang curiously walked closer and discovered that there were a few hands in the corner of the kitchen grabbing onto a black object. Yun Yang was terrified.
He leaned against the kitchen window and looked inside. Amidst the faint glow, there was a blood-red face.
That face was smiling strangely at Yun Yang.
“Ah!” Yun Yang was scared out of his wits. He quickly ran back to his room.
When he returned to his bed, Yun Yang was still trembling with fear.
He lay on the bed and tossed and turned, unable to fall asleep.
He kept feeling like he was in a dream, but that strange smile kept appearing in his mind.
He decided to tell Chen Li and Yun Shan about this matter the next morning!
The next morning, Yun Yang went to look for Chen Li and Yun Shan early in the morning.
When Yun Yang entered the house, he saw Chen Li’s haggard face and a faint bruise under her eyes. She looked like she had not rested well. When Yun Yang saw this state, he guessed that something must have happened last night.
“Mom, did you not sleep well?” Yun Yang asked first, concerned.
“I just didn’t sleep well. I heard some strange noises outside last night, so I didn’t sleep well.”
When Yun Yang heard Chen Li’s words, he was even more certain that what he had seen last night was real and not a dream!
Yun Yang hurriedly recounted what he had seen last night.
“You mean to say that you found something in the kitchen when you went out yesterday?”
Yun Yang nodded. He looked at Chen Li’s expression and then at Yun Shan’s. He was a little afraid.
“It’s fine. Don’t be afraid. Let’s go to the kitchen and take a look,” Yun Shan suggested. After all, he was a man, so he was still a little braver.
Hearing the chattering outside, Yun Xi also woke up. After understanding what had happened, she walked into the kitchen with everyone.
There were not any other abnormalities in the kitchen, nor were there any valuable items missing. However, some vegetables had mysteriously disappeared. There were also some vegetables placed on the stove with strange bamboo sticks stuck on them.
“Could it be that the people that died from the infection of inferior bamboo came out to cause trouble?” Yun Yang’s imagination was extremely rich.
Chen Li and Yun Shan also nodded their heads.
Although this matter was a little mysterious, one had to think of the possibility of this matter.
People nowadays were still very ignorant. If there were any strange things, they would involuntarily think of ghosts and gods.
Yun Xi naturally did not believe in these things, so she prepared to bring her whole family to ‘catch ghosts’.
Originally, she had only planned to wait by the kitchen for an entire night.
However, Chen Li felt that there was something dirty in the house, so she insisted on getting some yellow paper and talisman paper.
Hence, with Yun Yang’s help, she set up an altar in the courtyard. Then, she took out some yellow paper, cinnabar, and peach wood swords and began to set up a formation in the courtyard to drive out the evil spirits.
After setting up all this, Yun Xi went to school. She waited around the kitchen at night to see what the hell was going on!
The three rooms and a group of people waited around the kitchen for more than an hour, but nothing happened.
“Mom, what do you think is going on?” Yun Yang felt very strange. Could it be that he had really seen wrongly?
Why did nothing unusual happen tonight? Although he was afraid, he was still looking forward to the family catching ghosts and fighting evil together.
“Maybe it’s because of this altar. Those demons and monsters were scared away. I told you that these things would be very useful,” Chen Li said proudly.
She believed that this was because of the altar. Otherwise, how could it be so coincidental?
However, Yun Xi shook her head. Since she did not gain anything tonight, she was going to hunt ghosts again tomorrow night!
The next day, before she could go home to hunt ghosts, Yun Xi had just walked into a small alley after school when she felt something hard against her waist.
