;s a perfect opportunity for me to explore outside.

Gu Yi left the bedroom and had breakfast with his family.

His mother held her bowl and chopsticks, calmly looking at her children.

“Do you have any plans for today?”

His sister looked up.
“I'm going to a classmate's house to play.”

“Have you finished your homework?”

“Yes, it's done.”

Mother nodded and turned to Gu Yi.
“And what about you?”

“I'm going to hang out with friends.”

“Hang out? Forget it, you better stay at home and review your schoolwork.
The college entrance exam is coming up.”

Gu Yi cursed inwardly, but unexpectedly, his father spoke up.

“Too much studying every day will make our son dull.
It's okay to relax for a day.
Don't be so strict.”

Mother frowned and thought for a moment.
“Well, where are you going to hang out?”

“Just in town, not far.”


“Well, that's good.
Just make sure you don't leave the town, okay?”

“I know.”

Gu Yi quickly finished his breakfast, grabbed his bag, and ran out of the house.

[4 days, 23 hours, 18 minutes]

There's no class today, and his parents didn't assign any extra tasks.
The next twenty-four hours are completely free for him to do as he pleases.

At this point, the time in the small town has finally synchronized with the countdown.

However, the residents of the small town still had blank, lifeless eyes.
If they were too far away from him, they would turn into pixelated blocks.

Gu Yi walked to the neighboring house and knocked on the door of his deskmate, Chen Dong.

After some negotiation, Gu Yi successfully borrowed a bicycle.

He rode the bicycle around the small town.

The town was not large in size, and it only took about two hours to circle around its perimeter.

So far, Gu Yi had explored the high school, the elementary school, and the clinic.

There was nothing worth exploring in high school and elementary school.

The clinic, like the old house, was a special place that could directly connect to the surface world under certain circumstances.

Gu Yi thought that if there was only one exit in the town, it would either be the clinic or the old house.

So, Gu Yi rode his bicycle to the clinic.

Suddenly, something crossed Gu Yi's mind.

His mother had always been taking medication for cancer treatment.
Could it be prescribed from this clinic?


Gu Yi walked into the pharmacy of clinic.

This was a small town, and the residents almost all knew each other.
As soon as Gu Yi appeared, the doctor at the pharmacy immediately recognized him.

“Oh? Aren't you the eldest in the Gu family?”

Gu Yi glanced at the doctor's name badge and smiled.
“Hello, Dr.
Li.”

“Why did you come to the clinic? Are you feeling unwell?”

“No, I just came to help my mom get her prescription.”

“Didn't your mom come to get her medication just last week? Why does she need another prescription?”

“Oh, really?” Gu Yi smiled innocently.
“Maybe my mom made a mistake.
She hasn't been looking quite well lately.”

“It's alright.
As long as your mom rests well, the condition can be controlled.
She's still young and will recover quickly.”

“My mom…
when did she get sick?”

“Don't you know?”

“They've been refusing to tell me all along.
It was only a few days ago that she couldn't hide it from me anymore, and she told me.”

“Parents' hearts are full of concern…
They're probably worried about it affecting your college entrance exam, right?” Dr.
Li sighed.
“Actually, I'm not quite sure when she got sick.
Probably last year?”

“Last year?”

“Well…
maybe even earlier?”

“Can you give me a specific date?”

“How can I give you a specific date?”

“Don't you have medication records or medical reports here? Can't you help me check?”
