Chapter 30 Secrets

My hands trembled and I looked back into the darkness.

Between Grandpa Si’s broken nasal bone and his eyes, I never knew whether he was blind or not. But he showed almost no signs of being blind when he was alive, which I never understood.

He must’ve had a lot of secrets.

Chen Pi Ah Si wasn’t like other people. He wasn’t burdened by morals, killed people without batting an eye, and didn’t care much about other people’s life or death. My family was often more than a hundred percent cautious when it came to the overall situation, which led to messages being too cryptic and not circulating smoothly. But Chen Pi Ah Si wouldn’t do that. The message he left made me curious in a way I hadn’t been for a long time.

But I really didn’t know how to remove his nasal bone in this kind of situation. I thought it would be good for me if he didn’t take mine instead.

I took a deep breath and slowly walked into the darkness. When I came up behind Chen Pi Ah Si, I smelled a faint aroma, which I knew was the so-called “forbidden woman scent”.

I covered my nose and slowly approached, trying to make some noise.

I didn’t know why, but it didn’t respond. I pulled my shorts up and kept trying to get closer.

The figure in front of me slowly appeared in the extremely dim light, and I was covered in a cold sweat as I went around to face it.

I saw a skinny face dripping with water that was full of wrinkles and spots. The eyes were bulging, but they were all white without any hint of a pupil. The nails of both hands were caught in my meteor hammer.

The corpse had a terrible scar that went across the eyes and bridge of its nose. The nasal bone should be right under the scar, but how to take it?

I held my breath and said to myself, do you want me to put my fingers in your nostrils? That’s just fucking awesome.

I knew that a lot of nose operations required lifting the upper lip, cutting the junction between the upper lip and gums, and lifting up the skin to expose the whole nasal bone. It was difficult to reach the upper end of the nose using other ways. Of course, smashing its face in directly would also do the trick.

After thinking about it, I squatted down and retreated, deciding to take the stupidest risk.

I grabbed the oxygen light, moved around to gather some stones, and then started building a wall next to Grandpa Si.

I didn’t have time to feel around blindly in the dark, and I didn’t know how long it took, but it must have been a long time considering I was sore all over. When I was done, I had built up a tower around Grandpa Si’s corpse, trapping him inside.

This was really messing around, and my grandpa and Uncle Three would be furious if they knew I was doing something on the level of child’s play. But I had nothing else besides these stones.

I knew this thing was really powerful, so I specially built several layers using stones the size of a human head. Since I had studied architecture, I knew all the mechanical structure tricks. As I placed each stone on top of the other and the base got higher and higher, the tower became stronger. Grandpa Si was surrounded by stones until only his head was exposed, just like eating monkey brains (1).

I then climbed up the tower, held up a sharp rock, pointed it at Grandpa Si’s face, and smashed it down.

Grandpa Si only moved once, and that was to bump into the stone encirclement. The stones quickly loosened, but I had designed it so that all the collapsed stones would fall on the corpse and completely suppress it.

I smashed my rock down again and its entire face collapsed. The stones stirred as it tried to climb out and I shouted: “Excuse me!”

I smashed down with all my strength and its face split open.

The face was still moving even though both eyes had been smashed out.

I didn’t dare reach in directly. There was nothing nearby I could use, so I had to take off my underwear, wrap it around my hands, reach into its nose, and break its face.

I felt a ring.

There seemed to be a copper wire leading into its nasal cavity.

TN Notes:

(1) So this is really fucked up and gross (in my opinion), but monkey brains are served directly in the skull of a monkey that is still alive or where the cook has just killed it prior to serving.

One thought on “Chapter 30 Secrets

  1. 🤮 but cool at the same time, I guess. I mean, that was some quick thinking under not the best circumstances with very few resources for Wu Xie. I definitely couldn’t do it. -.-
