The Master of Metaphysics is The Movie Queen – Chapter 5

TMMTMQ – Chapter 5

 

Probably because the people outside was afraid that Gong Qingyao would not open the door, the people outside shouted, "Police, please open the door."
 
Gong Qingyao got dressed and opened the door, only to found Cheng Lei knocking on the door, holding his police card. Perhaps Cheng Lei didn't expect Gong Qingyao would be the one to open the door, so he hurriedly packed his ID, "It's you."
 
Gong Qingyao nodded.
 
"Have you heard any movement next door?" Cheng Lei asked.
 
Gong Qingyao calculated the time clearly in her mind, and then said, "There was no noise half an hour ago."
 
The implication was that the movement next door only started half an hour ago. Cheng Lei nodded. This was the time when the waiter discovered the victim. Cheng Lei stood there for a while, and saw Gong Qingyao not asking what happened here, and scratched his head. Normal people would come out to see if they heard this kind of movement. Actually, all the guests on this floor came out. But Gong Qingyao didn't even look at it, as if she wasn't interested in what happened.
 
Seeing that Cheng Lei had no other questions, Gong Qingyao said, "Is there anything else?"
 
Cheng Lei quickly said, "No, no."
 
Gong Qingyao returned to the house, before closing the door, Cheng Lei said more, "Pay attention to security."
 
On the next day, the hotel resumed its usual routine. What happened yesterday seemed to have not happened. Gong Qingyao returned from meditating on the mountain and finally found one difference. Today’s breakfast was two-thirds less than before. Gong Qingyao filled a bowl of porridge, plus some fruits and vegetables on the plate, and just found a stool to sit down. Then she received a call from Cheng Lei.
 
"To tell you good news, Zhou He and Liu Mei have been sentenced to life," said Cheng Lei on the phone.
 
It turned out to be only life sentence, Gong Qingyao let out a faint mutter.
 
Hearing that Gong Qingyao was not as happy as expected, Cheng Lei on the other end of the phone touched his nose, "Actually, it's pretty good to be judged indefinitely."
 
Gong Qingyao didn't respond, and ate the porridge slowly. Cheng Lei on the phone finished talking about Zhou He and Liu Mei, and then said, "By the way, the case last night was a wicked one. The good-hearted person staying in the room next to you was gone. We are finding no clues, no trace of homicide in the room, but no trace of suicide either. The victim seemed to just die suddenly, and the forensic team didn’t find anything abnormal."
 
Gong Qingyao frowned, but did not speak. Cheng Lei on the other end of the phone said a lot of things but suddenly realized what he has done, "Look at me, what am I doing talking so much? I still have a job. I’ll hang up first."
 
"Okay." Gong Qingyao swallowed her last mouthful of porridge, got up and left the restaurant.
 
Gong Qingyao stayed on the fifth floor, the restaurant was on the second floor, and it took only ten seconds for the elevator to go up. However, after waiting inside the elevator for a full minute today, it still stayed on the fourth floor. The moment Gong Qingyao raised her head, the lights in the elevator flickered. It turned on and off, and the numbers in the elevator jumped up from the fourth floor, rushing to one hundred in a short while. The Holiday Hotel only has twelve floors.
 
Gong Qingyao stood quietly in the center of the elevator. After reaching 100, the number of the elevator began to drop again, and soon stopped at the negative eighteenth floor, "Is it enough?"
 
The last word fell, and then the sound "ding" could be heard. With this sound, the elevator door opened, and the originally bright corridor was dark like the night. People could hear the cry of female voices from a distance.
 
Gong Qingyao stretched out her hand to take out a yellow talisman, and the female voice suddenly screamed, "Ah, ah, master, please spare my life."
 
"You still have a life?" Gong Qingyao asked.
 
The female ghost choked, and after a while, a light flashed in her eyes, "You can see me? Can you hear me?"

 
Gong Qingyao said, "I see that you haven't hurt any human yet, so go and reincarnate."
 
The female ghost floated to Gong Qingyao and knelt down, "Master, please help me, I don't want to go to reincarnation."
 
Gong Qingyao noticed that there was a heavy resentment on the female ghost, no wonder even though she was a new ghost she could already control the elevator. If an ordinary person saw that scene, they would be scared out of their mind. And then this female ghost would have received a trace of bad karma.
 
Seeing that Gong Qingyao hadn’t spoken, the female ghost hurriedly said, "Yesterday, I made an appointment with my fans to broadcast live. I packed my luggage and got ready to take a shower. The broadcast turned out so well, then I just fell asleep and when I opened my eyes again I found myself floating in the air. My body lied on the ground, I couldn't come back in, and then I heard people say I am dead. I am in good health, and I never stay up late. It must not be a natural death."
 
This female ghost was the person who stayed next door to Gong Qingyao yesterday. Gong Qingyao stared at the female ghost. She remembered what Cheng Lei had just said. There were no signs of suicide and homicide in the room, and there was no abnormality in the forensic report. It seemed that someone directly hooked her soul out. Gong Qingyao said, "Come with me."
 
The female ghost hurriedly followed Gong Qingyao and floated behind her, and the dark corridor immediately lit up after the ghost left.
 
Walking into Gong Qingyao's room, the female ghost was surprised again, "So you stay next to me, were you not afraid of the big movement yesterday?"
 
Gong Qingyao glanced at the female ghost and the female ghost calmed down. The person in front of her was different from normal people. Even if there was a ghost standing in front of this little girl now, she didn’t even blink her eyes.
 
"Tell me about your situation." Gong Qingyao said.
 
The female ghost was stunned for a moment, and then began to introduce herself, "I am Lu Qianqian, an internet celebrity..." she talked without stopping for an hour, "The reason why I did a prank today is because I feel that I have died unjustly. Maybe there is a problem with this hotel, so I want to scare away the people who stay here."
 
Although she couldn’t listen to too many nonsense, but Gong Qingyao could distinguish some truth from what the ghost said. It was just that from what Lu Qianqian said just now, she had never been involved in anything related to metaphysics in her life, but the cause of her death was clearly related to metaphysics. Gong Qingyao tapped her fingers on the table a few times, and then said, "You follow me first."
 
"Really? Will that be alright? Thank you, Master?" Lu Qianqian said happily. After all, Lu Qianqian was nothing more than a young girl.
 
"What is your wish?" Gong Qingyao asked.
 
Lu Qianqian said, "My parents don't even know that something happened to me. Can you help me tell my parents? Tell them that once I reincarnated I will repay their kindness." Lu Qianqian said that she originally came to S City to travel, but when she arrived, she died abruptly.
 
"Okay." Gong Qingyao called Cheng Lei and asked him to inform Lu Qianqian's parents to come to S city.
 
Cheng Lei said, "I notified them last night. The old couple was crying at the police station now." After speaking, Cheng Lei remembered one thing, "How do you know that the deceased is called Lu Qianqian?"
 
Gong Qingyao didn't answer Cheng Lei's question, but just said, "Bring them here."
 
Lu Qianqian was so sad when she heard that her parents had already arrived in S City. If she was still a human, Lu Qianqian was probably crying rain by now. Gong Qingyao silently walked to the bathroom, wanting to gave Lu Qianqian a bit alone time.
 
After a while, there was a knock on the door. Cheng Lei brought the two elders over. Father Lu and Mother Lu had never seen Gong Qingyao before. After seeing the little girl, Father Lu was first stunned and then a little puzzled.

 
Cheng Lei looked at Gong Qingyao. He knew that if Gong Qingyao did not give a reasonable explanation today, he would probably be skinned by the two elders.
 
Gong Qingyao asked Cheng Lei to close the door, and then took out two talismans she had made prior, "You only have one minute." After speaking, she pasted each talisman on the forehead of Father Lu and Mother Lu.


Cheng Lei asked, "Don't I need it?" He clearly saw the magic of this talisman yesterday, so he wanted to try it today.
 
Gong Qingyao looked at Cheng Lei with a certain look, while Cheng Lei stood up straight, "Please."
 
Gong Qingyao raised her hand and also gave Cheng Lei one.
 
Father Lu and Mother Lu were so surprised by Gong Qingyao, but then they found their daughter standing in front of them. Mother Lu couldn't help but call out, "Qianqian?"
 
Lu Qianqian knelt down, "Parents, please forgive your daughter that is not filial, I will still be your child in the next life."
 
Father Lu calmed a bit from his shock, "Qianqian, tell your father, who hurt you?"
 
Lu Qianqian shook her head, "I don't know. It was so sudden. I only remember feeling dizzy, and when I wake up I find myself dead."
 
Father Lu and Mother Lu wanted to say something, but the one minute has ended. When the parents saw their daughter's figure fade away, Mother Lu couldn't help but finally feeling pained again.
 
Cheng Lei on the side looked at everything in front of him in horror. Just now, he seemed to see a ghost? No, no. Years of education made him did not believe everything in front of him. Cheng Lei silently thought in his heart, this must be fake, fake.
 
"Let's all go." Gong Qingyao said.
 
Father Lu looked at Gong Qingyao, knowing that she was not an ordinary person, "You are..."
 
It took a long time for Cheng Lei to perceive the doubts of Father Lu and Mother Lu, and then he said, "Gong Qingyao."
 
Mother Lu on the side said, "Miss Gong, can we see Qianqian again?"
 
Gong Qingyao refused, they could not do this thing for too long. Even the previous one minute would have a slight impact on the two elders’ body.
 
Father Lu continued, "Master Gong, we will remember your kindness, and we will come to thank you in the future." He started to take Mother Lu away. They would do their best to investigate the truth about their daughter.
 
Cheng Lei originally had a lot of questions to ask, but he could only turn it into one sentence, "Then I will also go." Since he met Gong Qingyao, he has always seen such unthinkable things. If he thought about it, the first one was Zhou He and Liu Mei, the second was when Gong Qingyao drew talismans in the coffee shop, and the third was today. He actually saw a ghost in broad daylight!
 
No one believed these things. The most important thing was that even if he saw the ghost, it was of no use, because the case still could not be solved.
 
After everyone left, Gong Qingyao also began to pack up.
 
Lu Qianqian asked from the side, "Master, are you leaving?"
 
"Yeah." The reality show recording would start tomorrow, and Gong Qingyao had to rush to City R.
 
Lu Qianqian was a little flustered, "Master, can you take me with you?" She vaguely felt that the person in front of her could help solve the mystery of her death.
 
"Okay." Even if Lu Qianqian didn't say anything, Gong Qingyao already planned to leave with Lu Qianqian. After all, Gong Qingyao wanted to know who would dare to use metaphysics to harm people.
