accidentally press the exit button.
This is all re-typed by this landlord.

When I raised my head and looked up, there was actually nothing wrong at first glance.
There were basically no lights on from other units after three in the morning, so every room was dark except for the lights through the windows of this landlord’s place.

Yes, this landlord consciously left the lights on when she went out, because I am afraid I would be greeted with a cloud of darkness whenever I return and open the door, so whenever I go out, I would rather waste electricity and leave the lights on.

Since there is no fourth floor, looking in from the outside, the actual location of this landlord’s window should be on the fifth floor.

However, when I counted down one by one, I saw five windows under the lit up windows from my place!

In other words, there was an extra floor beneath the top floor.
The fourth floor that did not exist had appeared! 】

This continuation from the original poster managed to dig up all the readers who previously lurked without commenting, all of them analysing with careful consideration.

Ye Zun blinked and gulped slightly, then shrank farther into his blanket.
With only a pair of eyes exposed, he laid on his side while tightly wrapped in the blanket, letting the phone rest against the pillow to relieve his sore arms.

And then, he continued to scroll down.

This time, the sliding motion of his finger was a little slow, and he glanced at the other replies in the post.

One of them wrote, “Is it convenient for the landlord to disclose in which city? If it is V City then it isn’t difficult to understand, because the old communities in V City generally don’t have a fourth floor, but there will be an extra floor between the first floor and the exit.
Some of these extra floors have viewing windows, some basements have skylights.
From the outside, if you don’t look carefully it appears like an extra layer of windows.”

“This is probably the real situation behind counting the wrong floors.”

“Line up*.”


[T/N: may be referring to people who agree, they will line up with “+1” etc.
after the explanation]

“+1.”

This person’s explanation greatly eased the horror atmosphere in the post.
Many people brought this floor down* and reminded the host to take a look at this explanation.

[T/N: reposting (?) so it can pop up in the latest comments.
Remember, a floor is a new comment]

After more than a dozen floors, the landlord reappeared.

【 The internet connection is very bad and this landlord is very scared.
I’m afraid that once it breaks, I will not have the courage to finish writing.

Actually, this landlord didn’t just see the extra set of windows, the window on the fourth floor also had light coming through.
My curtains are an earthy yellow and I have ordinary warm lighting, but the window on the fourth floor was red.
Yes, like the chilling penetrative red in a ghost film.
Moreover, the most important thing was that there was a tall and thin figure behind the red curtain.
It stood by the window, looking at me.

Realising what I just saw, I was stunned for a moment, and my whole body turned cold as if I had fallen into an ice cellar.
I couldn’t react at all, I just felt terrified.
My mind was full of that thing looking straight at me.
It found me.

I was so frightened that tears came out.
My legs and feet were shaking, but I did not dare to run.

I didn’t know why, even though I was so scared I did not dare to run.
Back in my mind, I felt that if I ran, something terrible would happen.

But any normal person knows that when you are in danger, you should run away.
I tried to keep myself sane and gathered the courage to run to the community’s gates where people were, but then my phone suddenly rang.

I was startled at first, but immediately realised that the call was from my co-renting xiao-jiemei.

In a terrifying situation, receiving a call from an acquaintance really feels like you’ve been saved.
The chill on my body all dissipated, and I even suddenly thought that the person behind the window was just a weird person, that it was my brain overreacting.

Thinking this, I didn’t delay answering the call from the xiao-jiemei.

“Where are you? When are you coming back? I came out to pick you up,” I said, light-hearted and as if nothing had happened. 

The little sister on the other end of the phone did not immediately reply to me.

“Wei, talk ah, where are you?” I could hear my own voice trembling.
The other end of the phone was very quiet, with a slight undecipherable noise.

[T/N: 喂/wei: greeting when you pick up the phone]

At that time, I inexplicably became nervous, but then the xiao-jiemei’s voice immediately came through.
Because she was tired from working overtime, her voice sounded weak.
“Did you go downstairs ah? I’ve already returned.
I didn’t bring my keys, but you’re not opening the door even though I’ve knocked so many times.” 

I was surprised at first, and then confused.
“You already came back? When?”

“Just now.
I just came upstairs.
Didn’t I say I couldn’t find the key to open the door?”

I was perplexed.
“But, I also just went downstairs.
I’m at the bottom, but I didn’t see you ah.” 


The little sister’s voice was normal, the same as before, but slightly tired, and there was a moodiness that she was clearly trying her best to suppress.
“Maybe we happened to miss each other ba, forget it, when are you coming up? What are you doing out in the middle of the night?”

“I’m a little scared, so I wanted to come out to buy some snacks and wait for you to come back along the way.”

At that time, I subconsciously glanced up at the fourth floor.
After the lights went out, the window on the fourth floor looked normal, and with the little sister’s murmuring complaints, I felt a little wronged.
This feeling of being wronged diverted my attention, and that bit of fear evaporated.

Xiao-jiemei probably heard the grievances in my voice.
Her voice became much more gentle and patient.
“You should quickly come up ba, I’ve already brought some snacks back.
Don’t go out next time, you can wait for me at home.
You know how dangerous it is to go out at night ah.”

By then, I was not scared at all and started walking back.
I even wanted to tell the little sister about my embarrassing suspicions while going downstairs.

After swiping the card to enter the unit door, the sound of the iron door automatically closing and locking echoed in the corridor.
The emptiness was a little chilling.

I’ve mentioned before that the cornered path from the stairs to the first floor to the unit entrance was really dark and cold.

I don’t know if it was because of this atmosphere, but as soon as I walked in, I suddenly felt the inexplicable panic I experienced when walking downstairs.

The xiao-jiemei on the other end of the phone said, “Lin Lin, come up quickly ah, I’ve been waiting for you for a long time.” 】

The author has something to say:

As for the heads up, I won’t put any indicators, so if you’re easily scared, check the titles on jjwxc for the more ‘scary’ chapters.

3 (one point ‘little scary’, refer to the level of this chapter) (two points ‘little scary’) (three points ‘little scary’) and the highest (really scary ah, recommended you to read during the day).

4 Chapters that are not marked as above are usually emotional dramas.
The little angels can choose when to read or skip chapters according to their own preferences.

5 But really, it’s not too scary.
For the more bold little angels, it may be just so-so. 

In the story, Ye Zun starts pretending to be the Boss after experiencing the first instance of the Demon Lord’s Amusement Park.
