The Laws of Love

CH 36

Suo Yang found that Shen Huiming, who was playing games with the students, had a childish cuteness to him. He was very curious how Shen Huiming’s staff would react if they saw their boss here asking for praise like a schoolboy who had won a certificate.

Six people entered through the gap under the table and went straight to the corridor, where they got another part of the torn diary.

The corridor was glowing with an eerie green light, and there was no end in sight.

On one side of the narrow corridor were six photographs of the students, each photo with a corresponding name underneath.

“So, this is us?” A boy pointed to the obviously old photo on the wall and said, “Then this is Zhang Xiaohui who wants to kill us! It’s a girl!”

Suo Yang and Shen Huiming walked last, looked up and followed the direction he pointed, and found Zhang Xiaohui’s photo was facing a room with a sign by the door一Principal’s Office.

There was a gap in the door of the principal’s office, and it was pitch black inside. Looking through the gap, one couldn’t see anything. The boy in front of me was about to push the door in, and before he did so, he said, “There’s no one in there, is there?”

Probably this student just opened his mouth to say whatever. As soon as he finished speaking, the door opened, and he saw a person sitting behind the principal’s desk.

There were screams one after another, and Shen Hui Ming, who was at the end, subconsciously protected Suo Yang in front of him.

Suo Yang was actually not frightened by the people inside, because he was blocked by the people in front of him, so he couldn’t see what was going on inside. However, he was completely frightened by the cries of those people.

Shen Huiming turned sideways directly, half-protecting Suo Yang in his arms, and turned to look inside, wanting to confirm what was going on.

When Shen Huiming turned his head to look at Suo Yang, he happened to lock eyes with him. The two were about the same height, and they were still close at this moment, with the tips of their noses almost touching each other.

The two looked at each other for a few seconds, and Suo Yang asked softly, “What’s wrong?”

At this time, they heard the girl say, “What are you shouting for? That is just a dummy!”

When they heard her words, Suo Yang and Shen Huiming were taken aback, and then both laughed.

“It didn’t scare you, did it?” Shen Huiming stepped aside and followed everyone inside, but still protected Suo Yang behind him.

“Their scream startled me.” Suo Yang looked at Shen Huiming’s back and secretly smiled behind him.

Actually, Suo Yang never told Shen Huiming about one thing—when he was in elementary school, he watched horror movies alone at home in the middle of the night, and he didn’t feel scared at all.

This kind of scene setting really didn’t scare Suo Yang. If there was a real NPC in it, Suo Yang could even chat with the other party and directly set out the way to clear the level.

All these virtual things, whether it was a movie or a game, did not scare him. He was a flight attendant who must remain rational and calm in the cabin to appease the passengers and guide everyone to help themselves when he was in a real crisis.

They entered the principal’s office, and Suo Yang still stood with Shen Huiming all the time. The two who had never played the escape room had roughly found the way to pass the previous level and passed the next three rooms very smoothly. The torn diary had also been pieced together, and the overall context of the story had been fully restored. Normally, they should be able to go out.

But the problem was that several people were trapped in the corridor, and there was no door to get out.

“So that means the last level should be the corridor.” One of the boys said, “But there’s nothing in the corridor!”

One of the boys got a bit anxious and just picked up the walkie-talkie to get help from the shop assistant.

Suo Yang and Shen Huiming, who were originally pulled to make up the numbers, couldn’t express any opinions, but the boy who asked for help was ‘cleaned up’ by his teammates while calling the shop assistant.

However, in the end, it was only because they asked for help that they found a way through the level.

In the last level, there was no password to be cracked, but six people need to go back to the six rooms where they came back and wait there alone for the bell to ring after class before going out.

Two boys muttered fear in their mouths, but it was impossible to do it without being separated.

Six people walked back along the corridor, to the door of one room, and said goodbye to one person.

The scariest part of the set was the principal’s office with dummies and the laboratory with human organs. These two rooms naturally fell on the two ‘big brothers’.

Shen Huiming remembered that Suo Yang had some kind of reaction to the organ soaked in the bottle, so he asked himself to go there.

At the door of the principal’s office, only Suo Yang, Shen Huiming and the only girl were left.

Before he entered the door, Suo Yang exchanged glances with Shen Huiming, and said softly, “See you later.”

After he finished speaking, Shen Huiming shook Suo Yang’s hand suddenly.

The light was dim, but they had already adapted to the environment and could see each other clearly.

Shen Huiming smiled and said softly, “I’m right next door to you.”

Suo Yang also laughed, originally wanting to explain that he was not afraid, but in the end, he only said, “Okay.”

Shen Huiming watched Suo Yang walk into the principal’s office, and then followed the girl.

The girl asked him in a low voice, “Big brother, what’s the relationship between you two?”

Shen Huiming smiled, “Why do you ask that?”

“I think you have an unusual relationship.” The girl smiled slyly at him, “Straight men don’t have fun that way.”

They had already reached the laboratory as they were talking. Shen Huiming stopped, smiled and said to the girl, “Go ahead, if you’re scared, call me through the wall to talk with you.”

The girl waved her hand, “I’m very brave.”

She went in through the small door from when she came and went back to the first room, then bent down again, poked her head through and said with a smile, “You two are so good together!”

These words won Shen Huiming’s heart, and although Suo Yang might frown if he knew it, the other party was not here after all. Shen Huiming’s vanity secretly made him say to the girl, “The little girl has good eyesight, we are indeed a good match.”

All six people were already in place, each guarding an eerie room.

In the beginning, there was no sound, and then, the faint female voice sounded again and recounted the whole story. Finally, the female voice said sadly, “Class is over, and one person must stay with me after the bell.”

After she finished speaking, the ear-piercing bell rang, which was really uncomfortable to hear in a somewhat terrifying environment.

A full thirty seconds, Suo Yang had to admit, these thirty seconds were more difficult than the previous two hours.

By the time the bell ended, a door opened in the room where each person was.

Everyone went out separately, five of the six returned to the bright hall, but Suo Yang was the only one missing.

Shen Huiming frowned, remembering the female voice at the end saying that there would be only one person left.

The other people were a little panicked and asked if they wanted to go back and find someone.

Shen Huiming thought for a while and said, “He should be able to handle it.”

After finishing speaking, Shen Huiming walked around the outside and found a door that hadn’t been opened yet.

He stood there waiting, believing that Suo Yang would come out soon.

At this moment, Suo Yang entered another room, which was dark and had the appearance of a student dormitory.

He understood that he was the one who had been ‘left behind’.

He glanced at the time and thought that Shen Huiming should have gone out, and he was a little afraid that the other party would worry about him.

But they had handed over their mobile phones before they came in, so there was no way to contact them, so they had to get through the level as soon as possible and meet up with each other.

The last hurdle was left to Suo Yang alone.

Shen Huiming waited outside the door a little anxiously but he was too embarrassed to show too much anxiety. He glanced at the time and found that he had only waited for less than three minutes.

Those students had already taken their mobile phones and brought Shen Huiming and Suo Yang’s as well.

Shen Huiming stood there, clutching their mobile phones in their hands. Now the sky was bright outside, and the sunlight outside the window was even a bit dazzling, but he knew it was dark in the chamber. He really wanted to ask if Suo Yang would be scared inside alone.

Just as he was in a hurry, the door in front of him opened unexpectedly.

A boy next to him said, “So fast?”

Shen Huiming hurried forward, and before reaching the door, he saw Suo Yang poking his head out from inside.

At that time, Suo Yang was really cute, like a gopher who just came out of a hole in the ground, dazzled by the sun.

Suo Yang narrowed his eyes to look at the person in front of him, then smiled and said, “It’s over?”

“It’s over.” Shen Huiming stretched out his hand to pull him out, and found that Suo Yang was actually holding a small banner in his hand, “What is this?”

“Souvenir.” Suo Yang said with a helpless smile, “After I cracked the password it showed that this was a souvenir of passing the level, so I took it out.”

Shen Huiming watched him open the banner, which read: You are such a smart little one!

‘Smart little one’, Suo Yang and Shen Huiming looked at the banner together and laughed, Suo Yang said, “You can have this, take it back and hang it in your office.”

Although the original solo date turned into a multiplayer game because of these students, they spent more than two hours happily, just like the wedding in Berlin, it was an unexpected gain.

After saying goodbye to a few students, Suo Yang and Shen Huiming went downstairs and left.

It was past six o’clock when they got back to the car, and their date had entered the tenth hour.

During these ten hours, they began to see each other in a more realistic light, and the distance was finally slowly drawn closer.

It was late September, and autumn had already arrived. The sky was not yet dark at this time, but the sun had already gone to work in the other hemisphere.

Suo Yang looked out the window, and suddenly heard Shen Huiming ask: “Do you feel anxious?”


“Didn’t you say before that one would feel anxious if one was outside in the evening?”

Suo Yang didn’t expect that he still remembered.

A little bit, actually, this time of day made it impossible for Suo Yang to quiet his mind.

“Let’s take you to a fun place.” Shen Huiming started the car, “Half an hour, and then we’ll go have dinner.”

Suo Yang didn’t ask where he was going, he just followed Shen Huiming quietly.

Before dark, Shen Huiming brought Suo Yang to their destination.

This was a small square with few people, and some people were flying kites.

After the two parked the car, Shen Huiming found two coins from the car and handed one to Suo Yang.


“Well, it will be useful later, take it.”

They got out of the car, and Suo Yang followed Shen Huiming to the depths of the square.

There was a small fountain in the middle of the small square, and several children were playing around the fountain.

When they walked to the fountain, Suo Yang realized that the bottom of the fountain was full of coins.

“This fountain has been around for a long time,” Shen Huiming said. “I don’t know when it started. Some people say that this fountain is more effective than the Trevi Fountain.”

The Trevi Fountain, the most famous Trevi Fountain in Rome, legend had it that couples throw coins into the pool together, and their love would last forever.

“I don’t mean anything else,” Shen Huiming said, “I just want to bring you here, so you can make a wish yourself.”

Suo Yang smiled, and gently rubbed his fingers against the coin Shen Huiming gave him.

He looked at the water gushing out and the coins in the pool, and for a long time he didn’t think that he could make any wish.

“I don’t seem to have a wish.”

Shen Huiming looked at him in surprise.

“You still have to rely on yourself for the goals you want to achieve, don’t you?”

Suo Yang’s words made Shen Huiming feel that he didn’t know whether to admire his transparency or feel sorry for his transparency, but Shen Huiming reckoned that Suo Yang didn’t need his distress.

“Then make a wish that you can’t achieve on your own.” Shen Huiming looked away, looked at the fountain, and threw the coin into the water while talking, “I wish you will be in a good mood tomorrow.”

The coin fell into the water and made a splash.

Suo Yang was silent for a few seconds, then tossed a coin as well.

Suo Yang said, “I wish that tomorrow you are also in a good mood.”
