I Livestream Divination to the World - Chapter 22 Part 1 — Not Your Daughter
Changjiu Real Estate Company in Nancheng.
The team from the Special Cases Management Bureau have been here for three days, but they were still confused as to the location of the cache. This incident has affected hundreds of employees throughout the company and has spread countless rumors on the Internet. In order not to cause panic, the superiors have asked them to resolve the situation as soon as possible.
The burden was extremely heavy and put a lot of pressure on their shoulders.
Li Wenzhong, distractedly holding a cigarette in one hand, turned to look at Su Lai, “Still can’t invite them?”
Su Lai has just finished reciting the spell to invite immortals. But he lowered his head and his face was dark as deep water, “It didn’t respond to me.”
Su Lai’s mood was not much better than Li Wenzhong’s, his heart filled with deep anxiety. This was the first time that the Fox Immortal failed to appear at his invitation.
In the yin and yang industry, almost everyone has a kind of ‘magic’ up their sleeves. If you wanted to use metaphysical methods, you needed to rely on other beings. For example, when Daoist priests drew talismans, they actually ask deities to lend their energy; some people enslave ghosts and strange creatures; and some people—like the Su family—borrow power from the ‘Five Immortals’.
The Five Immortals do not refer to real immortals, but to five kinds of spiritual animals: Whiskers, Yellow, White, Willow, and Ash—Fox, Weasel, Hedgehog, Snake, and Mouse.
Su Lai hailed from the Su family in Dongcheng, and the Su family worshiped the Fox Immortal. According to their family lore, their ancestor rescued a fox in the mountains while hunting. The fox had already cultivated its essence and become an Immortal. In order to balance karma, he came to repay the kindness shown to him. When invited, the fox spirit would possess a person’s body, and the possessed person would then have the ability to diagnose and cure other people’s illnesses.
As long as they brought offerings and recited the proper spell to invite the Fox Immortal, the Fox Immortal would possess them.
But this time, no matter how much he chanted the spell, the Fox Immortal refused to possess him.
For the past three days, Su Lai has been looking for the cache in and around the company, and he has been so busy that his feet didn’t even touch the ground. At the same time, being sensitive to these matters, he could faintly feel that his body was being affected by the aura in the place and he was gradually becoming weak.
Su Lai remembered that when he went back to his hometown during the Chinese New Year, he put tribute on the altar, and he heard a strange voice whisper in his ear: ‘You will face a calamity this year, but with the help of a noble personage, matters will end well.’
The sound was like bellows being pushed slowly that somehow got stuck from time to time, with a sense of stagnation—all in all, it was terribly disturbing. Although it tried its best to imitate human speech, whatever he heard was definitely not human.
Su Lai shook his head and retracted his thoughts. He was worried. “Captain Li, the Fox Immortal is not willing to come, there is a high probability that there is something here that’s scaring them. And I feel that something is sucking away the yang energy in me and my body is getting weaker and weaker. This art of Loathing Victory seems to be getting stronger and stronger as time goes by…”
“Hah,” Li Wenzhong sighed, then looked at Lin Weiyu and the others. “Have you found any clues as to the cache?”
Lin Weiyu, who was born from a feng shui family, held the compass in her hand and shook her head in frustration. “I searched for several excellent places to bury the cache, but I couldn’t find it.”
In addition to these two, other team members also used various methods to turn the entire building upside down—even knocking on the walls with magic weapons!—but all failed.
More than a dozen people in black uniforms fell silent. At the same time, they all remembered what the woman said before.
If there was no cache above ground, then it seemed that it could only be underground.
At this time, Li Wenzhong’s phone suddenly rang. After he answered the call, he hummed acknowledgement into the phone a few times, then hung up the call and turned to look at his team. “The excavation plan for the Changjiu Company building has been approved by the authorities, and proper arrangements have been made. They are coming soon.”
When the excavation team was finally in place, there was a rumbling sound from Changjiu Company building.
The neighboring residents have heard the news about the haunting of Changjiu Real Estate from their relatives and friends or from the Internet. Seeing such big movements coming from the building, they came over to watch the excitement.
But Changjiu Real Estate was now sealed, and as long as you approach, someone will stop you from going any further.
These residents could only pull out their mobile phones to take pictures from a distance.
The excavation team worked day and night; the moon and stars were sparse in the sky, and the ground grew covered with a thick layer of dust.
While Li Wenzhong and others were waiting anxiously, someone suddenly shouted in surprise “Found it!”
“Captain Li, we found the cache!”
A thought crossed everyone’s mind: Miss An was really capable ah!
The excavation team didn’t dare to touch the object inside the cache easily. They only cleared up the soil next to it, and everyone gathered around it with anticipation.
However, the scene that caught their eyes made everyone freeze in place, unable to move.
In the middle, buried in the deep pit, was a huge, elongated, black object. One end was wider than the other, forming a trapezoidal shape. The thing looked somewhat like timber that’s been cut lengthwise in half.
Most Chinese people would not be unfamiliar with this item, even if they have not seen it before with their own eyes, they would have seen its appearance and known its name from other media—it was a coffin.
It seemed to have been soaked in ink for a long time, and its entire length was solid black. The light they shone down on it was completely engulfed by its strong ominous aura.
