yone on the bus alighted was stunned and continued questioning Lu Yi Bei, “Why did you still stay on the bus? Didn’t I tell everyone to get off the bus earlier? We can’t go further than this today!”

Lu Yi Bei was puzzled, “Can’t go further? Why? Did the bus break down?”

The bus driver impatiently pouted his lips and pointed to the direction of the windshield, “There was a car crash ahead, multiple cars crashed into one another and a part of the viaduct even collapsed, tell me how do I continue driving? I advise you alight from the bus and think of a way to get back! It’s starting to get dark!”

Lu Yi Bei looked at the electronic clock on the bus’s dashboard and frowned.

Time, 17:08 

He’s right, it’s going to be dark soon, I must get back home quickly!

……

Lu Yi Bei alighted from the bus, after looking around to confirm where he was and went straight in the direction of where he lived.

The time was just past 5 pm, the sky had already begun to darken and the sun was beginning to set, casting a thin blood coloured shadow quitely draping over the streets.

The bustling street seemed a little congested but was awfully quiet. 

The passersby were all quiet looking down at the street not saying a single word, even if their gazes occasionally met, most of the expression in their eyes were filled with vigilance.

For this strange situation, Lu Yi Bei did not think it was strange, ever since five years ago when the sun entered a state of “shortening” where day time got shortened and night times became longer.

All kinds of ghost stories were like weeds that got nourished by the rain, growing wildly under the long night.

In this situation, learning to be alone became a necessary skill for everyone to learn.

It is in this situation where it seems as if an invisible barrier was built between everyone in this kind of quiet environment, that an old song that started playing in his ears was rather abrupt and rather out of place.

“Looking at flowers through fog, staring at the moon by the water’s reflection, can you tell apart this unpredictable world?~♪

……♫

Lend me lend me a pair of eyes~♪

Let me see this turmoil clearly~♪

……♫”[1]

Lu Yi Bei, like most passerbys walked in silence however the soothing and ethereal melody drifted into his ears, he was stunned for a moment and proceeded to look in the direction from which the singing came from.

In front of a slightly far away cafe next to an alleyway stood “Mr Rabbit”

Wearing rather comical looking rabbit costume, portable speakers playing music and shoving flyers in front of people. 

The standard poster boy wearing 3 things.

The poster boy was wearing a big western style black suit, wearing exaggerated red leather boots and wore a gigantic rabbit mask.

The workmanship of the white rabbit mask is quite exquisite, and every hair looked lifelike, it was as if they magnified a rabbit’s head many times and used it as the mask.

Mr Rabbit enthusiastically handed out flyers to the passersby.

Faced with the flyers getting shoved in front of them, most people walked past him indifferently as if they hadn’t seen Mr Rabbit, completely ignoring him.

Even when someone did take the advertisement, it would be crumpled up and thrown into the trash the next moment.

Lu Yi Bei looked at the empty and lifeless eyes of the white rabbit’s mask, which smiled deliberately and stiffly. 

Suddenly, there was a sense of discomfort in his eyes, which made his eyes feel dry and itchy.

Just when Lu Yi Bei was about to look away and leave, Mr Rabbit seemed to have sensed the  gaze looking at him and waved at him enthusiastically.

“Me?” Lu Yi Bei pointed at his own nose.

After receiving a response from Lu Yi Bei, Mr Rabbit seemed to be very excited.

Continuing to desperately wave at him while shaking his head vigorously, nodding with such force that it made people worry that his “head” would fall off any time.

Mr.
Rabbit’s white gloved hand seemed to sway in a way as if doing some kind of pattern, releasing a special kind of aura making Lu Yi Bei get attracted to come closer.

Lu Yi Bei felt light headed and his vision seemed to get blurry.

Maybe he saw it wrongly, but the smile on Mr Rabbit’s face seemed to be even brighter.

Lu Yi Bei numbly went in front of Mr Rabbit, just as he was about to take the flyer Mr rabbit gave him there was a sudden burning pain feeling in his eyes, it was as if something was burning in his eyes.

The intense discomfort in his eyes made Lu Yi Bei instantly snap out of the trance.

Standing about a meter away from Mr Rabbit, he stared blankly at Mr Rabbit for a second or two, before suddenly making a sharp 90 degrees turn and strode away with big steps.

I don’t care, I’m not interested, I’m leaving now!
