Different from what the players imagined, the interior of the villa was quiet and normal, without any horror ambience.
The hall was tall and spacious. The carpet under their feet was thick and soft, sinking under their steps. Turkish-style tapestry was hung on the marble walls, the european-style antique sculptures looked solemn and dignified under the dazzling lights.
As soon as they walked in, a woman in a long dress greeted them.
A golden bun was coiled on top of her head, revealing a slender and elegant neck, and a pair of gray-blue eyes shone brightly under the light.
She jumped straight at one of the players.
The player was caught off guard, he stood there helplessly, holding the woman who rushed at him stiffly, not knowing where to place his hands for a moment.
But the other party didn’t care. Instead, she approached him passionately, kissed him on both cheeks and complained, “Darling, why did it take you so long to come back?”
The player was tongue-tied, he stared blankly at the beautiful lady, not knowing what to say for a while.
“The guests are here?”
She looked behind the player, a look of contempt flashed across her face: “Darling, how can you let our distinguished guests and servants come together? It’s simply disrespectful.”
The woman waved her hand behind her and a butler in an ironed suit stepped forward: “Ma’am, what is the problem?”
She pointed at the the players who were standing at loss by the door and said:
“Take them away, servants have a place where servants should stay, instead of appearing in my living room.”
The butler gave a bow: “Yes, ma’am.”
Taking advantage of the NPCs having a conversation, the players hurriedly lowered their heads to check the identity cards they had just drawn from the box at the door—there was only a simple icon on the card, including brooms, kitchen utensils, hoes, top hats, dresses, and so on, even without words, players could easily guess the identity they would play as this time.
They all looked at each other, and after discussing a few words in hushed whispers, they quickly reached a consensus— first follow the plot, wait until everything has settled, and then gather to discuss the current situation.
“How about meeting in the yard in half an hour?”
Everyone nodded and agreed to the proposal.
Only Ge Xiu stared at his own card and fell into deep thought.
The icon on his card was a ring.
Ge Xiu: “…”
Combined with the encounters in the previous two dungeons, he couldn’t help but have an ominous premonition.
The butler came over and led towards the side hall the players with tool patterns drawn on their cards. And when the hostess turned back from her disdainful face just now, she immediately put on a sweet and friendly smile: “The journey has been hard, everyone must be tired. The maids will lead you to your arranged rooms, everyone have a good rest tonight and tomorrow we will hold a grand banquet…”
She glanced at Ge Xiu who was standing behind the crowd, her expression was obviously slightly taken aback and then she shouted:
“Oh my god, sweetie, why are you here?”
“Why don’t you stay in your room, but come back from outside with the guests?” The hostess hurried forward and dragged Ge Xiu out of the crowd of players, with a dark and serious expression: “Your wedding is in three days and you are still wandering around like this, where is the face of our family? Don’t be self-willed, go upstairs and return to your room.”
Ge Xiu: “…”
Since entering this world, basically every dungeon has been inseparable from this element, and he was either the hero or the heroine— and Ge Xiu didn’t even need to think to know who was the culprit.
As he followed the maid upstairs, he angrily shook off the cold hand that was still holding onto his wrist.
As soon as he flung it away, the other party entangled him persistently again, wrapping Ge Xiu’s hand in his wide and slender palm, holding tight and unwilling to let go.
Ge Xiu pinched him with his backhand and said through gritted teeth:
“… It’s all your fault.”
The man: “?”
Entering the virtual world was not out of research institute’s volition, so the missing fragments of this incomplete world would naturally be filled in by the subconscious mind of the shaper.
What’s worse was that the other party’s personal cognition in the virtual world was not the same as his personal cognition outside the virtual world.
——In other words, he might still feel that he was super innocent now.
The more Ge Xiu thought about it, the more angry he became: “Let go!”
His voice was a little louder this time, and even the maid walking in front turned around and asked, “Is there something wrong? Miss?”
Ge Xiu: “…it’s alright.”
The maid didn’t question further, she just brought Ge Xiu to the door of a room on the second floor and curtsied slightly: “Miss, if you need anything, just call me.”
The door of the room closed behind him, isolating him from the dark corridor.
The footsteps of the maid gradually faded away.
There was a wave of fluctuations in the air in front of him and the man’s tall figure gradually revealed itself. His pale face and dark eyes both expressed his confusion about this matter: “It’s all my fault? Why?”
Ge Xiu was infuriated: “What are you always thinking about in your head?”
Ge Xiu approached a few steps, narrowing his eyes gloomily: “Do you have any misunderstanding about my gender?”
The man: “??”
The four eyes met, one pair was angry and the other pair looked oblivious.
The innocent and confused look on his face just added fuel to the fire for Ge Xiu.
The experience of being forced to dress as a woman in the last world was brought back again, new and old grudges mixed, making Ge Xiu’s anger even more intense.
He pressed forward step by step, with dangerous intentions flashing in his deep and dark eyes, forcing the opponent back step by step until the man’s knee hit the edge of the bed behind him and he sat down on the bed subconsciously.
The man looked both bewildered and at a loss.
The young man stared at the other party condescendingly,and smiled instead of anger: “Do you need me to prove it?”
The man was stunned for a moment and then his eyes lit up slightly:
Ge Xiu: “…”
The curve of the man’s lips deepened, he promptly put his hand on the opponent’s waist and said in a low and slow voice,
Ge Xiu: “…”
I don’t know why, they are standing and sitting one by one, but However, he had an inexplicable feeling that he was suddenly a head short.
His face was expressionless:
“Bring it on.”
The anger accumulated just now slackened like a punctured balloon. Ge Xiu raised his hand and pinched the bridge of his nose, letting out a deep breath— the person in front of him always had the great ability to easily provoke his emotions.
But before he could calm down his emotions, he felt that the other party’s hand that was only lightly put on his waist suddenly tightened.
What followed was a whirlwind.
Ge Xiu fell down unexpectedly and felt the soft touch of the bed on his back. Then, a shadow covered his body and the other’s cold hands tightly grasped his wrists, pressing him into the mattress.
The man grinned, with white and sharp teeth showing between his thin lips, like a predatory beast that smelled blood:
“Then I will.”
Ge Xiu’s eyes widened: “Wha—”
The rest of the word swallowed by the other party.
Familiar breath enveloped him.
At that moment, Ge Xiu fell into a short daze.
The other party cunningly seized the opportunity to deepen the kiss.
As the pressing cold lips deepened, the teeth were biting persistently and viciously, the long-lasting and extended deep kiss could almost squeezed out all the air that was the chest cavity bit by bit. The extreme sense of aggression and possessiveness was so sharp that it seemed to drown with its weight, like a raging icy sea, unscrupulously declaring that it would swallow everything up.
Ge Xiu tried to struggle, but he had already missed the best opportunity.
Everything was going up and down in the chaos, it gradually became difficult to focus his sight, as if everything around him was disappearing, escaping and turning into bubbles.
In illusory visions, the only entity that existed in reality was the body pressed against one’s own chest.
And the heavy emotions that surged and almost drowned him completely—hotness, greed, longing, wickedness and desire.
At this moment, the door of the room was suddenly pushed open.
“Hey! Are you okay?” A player appeared at the door: “Although your room is also on the second floor, it’s really hard to find…”
His voice gradually became smaller until it disappeared.
The player standing at the door stared at the scene in front of him dumbfounded, the words he hadn’t spoken were stuck in his throat, he even forgot what he wanted to say for a moment.
The man pulled the distance between the two of them regretfully, then he turned his head slightly, his gaze casually swept across the shocked player standing there, an extremely dangerous coldness flashed in the depths of his dark eyes, as he spoke in low and hoarse voice:
“We’ll be right there.”
The moment the other party glanced over, the player subconsciously felt a chill behind his back, as if he was being targeted by some dangerous creature at the top of the food chain. The instantly creeping coldness made him wake up suddenly, he hurriedly took a few steps back, closed the door subconsciously and stammered,
“No, no hurry, no hurry.”
With a “bang”, the door closed.
When there only the closed door stood in front of him, the player finally felt as if his sanity was being restored. He glanced at the door with some lingering fear and the scene he saw just now seemed to have been burned on his retina, unable to dissipate.
The player had a mixed feeling in his hearts.
He stood alone in the corridor, recalling the scene just now and he couldn’t help shaking his head in amazement.
Do you dare to play like this even in a dungeon? Awesome…
At this moment, another player climbed up from downstairs, poked his head in the corridor and asked impatiently:
“Did you find anyone?”
The player was taken aback, and hurriedly responded, “Oh, yes, they said they’ll come right away.”
“Then don’t stand there in a daze, come down quickly, everyone else is waiting.” The man took back his head, turned and walked downstairs.
The player turned his head and glanced at the closed door, determined that it would be better to leave here first—the man’s eyes just now were too terrifying, he even had the illusion that he might die on the spot.
As he walked away, he belatedly began to recall.
Speaking of which, when they were outside, was there such a person among the players?
The player frowned in confusion, raised his hand and scratched his hair, feeling a little uncertain for a moment.
——It stood to reason that these two people were so superior in appearance, he shouldn’t only have an impression of one of them.
