One Child Two Treasures: The Billionaire Chief’s Good Wife - Chapter 2807
Chapter 2807: Haunting
“I wouldn’t be able to say champion for sure, but if the competition had proceeded normally, a placing in the top three wouldn’t have been a problem.”
“Yes. Because there was an accident — this mountain road is very steep. I recall during the finals, an American driver lost control when drifting and shot off the cliff. The competition ended then.”
Yun Shishi was dumbfounded.
Mu Yazhe continued, “This mountain road has been evaluated to be too steep and dangerous. If there’s a storm, it could easily collapse. Hence, the racing association had closed this route.”
After a pause, he suddenly thought of something and inched closer towards her with a sinister expression. He whispered into her ear, “I heard that this mountain road is haunted! There was one time some underground drag racing gang members had organized a secret drift race on the mountain road. In the end, when one of them came to the accident point, the brakes mysteriously stopped working. At that very spot where the accident had taken place before, the racer and the car shot off the cliff and crashed, also at the spot where the American racer died.”
She was shocked. “Haunted?!”
Mu Yazhe deliberately lowered his voice and continued, “Why do you think I insist on picking you up after filming every day? It’s all because I’m worried about you. This is a place where yin energy gathers. More than ten years ago, before the road through Mount Pan was constructed, many exploration teams came here to climb mountains and countless fell to their deaths. I still remember that when the rescue team went down the mountain to rescue the victims, they found many skeleton remains…”
Yun Shishi sucked in a deep and icy breath.
Suddenly, someone patted her shoulder lightly, causing her, who was now completely engrossed in these bizarre tales, to scream in fright.
Stunned, Hua Jin, who was behind her, retracted his hand.
Seeing that it was Hua Jin, Yun Shishi patted her chest and cried, “Hua Jin, why did you scare me on purpose?!”
“I… I’m innocent!”
‘I was only trying to talk to you,’ he said with wide-eyed innocence. “So I just patted your shoulder. Who would’ve expected you to freak out like this?’
Still in a state of shock, she glanced at Mu Yazhe and mysteriously pulled Hua Jin to the side. Her face pale with fear, she asked, “Hua Jin, did you know that Wuling Mountain is haunted?”
Hua Jin’s expression darkened.
Why hadn’t he heard about this before?
Yun Shishi’s scalp went numb. Thinking of what Mu Yazhe had told her just now, she still felt the lingering fear. Hence, she recounted this lame ghost story to him. Suddenly, she looked like she was about to burst into tears. “It’s so scary, isn’t it? If I had known that this place was haunted and cursed, I wouldn’t have accepted this script!”
Hua Jin was speechless for a moment before he retorted, “I’ve heard countless versions of this kind of ghost story when I was young, okay? It’s obvious that you’re just making it up! What haunting? It’s like a story you’d tell kids to scare them. You actually believed it.”
Yun Shishi fell silent.
“The details here can’t even withstand scrutiny! It can’t even be considered fabrication. At most, it’s just a casual tale to scare people! Shishi, to think that you’re educated and actually believe a fake ghost story! Wuling Mountain is not an exceptional mountain. Which expedition team would come here to climb it? It’s not challenging at all. Moreover, this mountain road was constructed two years ago. If there had been an accident, it would have been sensational news. However, I’ve never heard of any drifting races being held on Wuling Mountain. I’m also very into racing!”
