The whole country was in an uproar the moment they heard the news.

This was not the first time someone had resolved a pollution source in China, so everyone had more or less heard this world broadcast several times.

But this was the first time everyone heard of the name “Coffee.”

In other words, a new star investigator had been born in China.

“Who is this ‘Coffee’? An investigator newly trained by the country?”

“I don’t know.
I’ve never heard this name before.”

“There is one less ghost talk involving supermarkets.
We won’t have to worry so much when we go shopping in the future.
How great!”

At the same time, China’s “Ghost Talk Investigation Bureau” also quickly launched a meeting.

The tablet computer was flashing lights, a video conference in progress.
On screen, a hale and hearty old man was saying something seriously.

“……It stands to reason that if multiple people helped in clearing the customs, then at least a few assistants would be attached to the broadcast.
This time, the broadcast only reported ‘Coffee.’ Either they participated in a single-person ghost talk, or the others have already been…… Qin Feng! Are you listening?” Noticing the man who was doing the bare minimum, the old man suddenly became angry.

“I’m listening, I’m listening.” Qin Feng’s charmingly beautiful phoenix eyes showed a regal temperament the moment he raised his face.
With good temperament, he yawned, “Yesterday’s ghost talk of “Happy Children” took longer than expected.”

As soon as he heard this, the old man’s expression eased a lot.
Although he knew Qin Feng was probably talking nonsense, it was an indisputable fact that he had just solved a ghost talk.

“Do you have any thoughts on ‘Coffee’?” He asked kindly.

Qin Feng casually rolled up the sleeves of his black shirt to reveal his strong, sturdy arms.
Resting his chin on one hand, he lazily said, “No idea.
They just solved a pollution source.”

For the director of the “Ghost Talk Investigation Bureau” who had solved countless pollution sources and was currently the number one investigator in the world, a mere pollution source was nothing.

“But you, old man.
Don’t tell me you convened a meeting just for this person.
I still want to go back and catch up on sleep.”

The others in the conference couldn’t restrain their laughter.
Everyone liked hearing of the boss’ shortcomings from the hands of their ace.

The old man choked, losing his temper instantly.
“I shouldn’t have asked you, you have nothing good to say.
And you guys, what are you laughing at!”

After reprimanding the others, he continued.
“We can’t find ‘Coffee,’ and it’s hard for those foreigners who are eyeing them to find them…… In short, it’s the same old story.
Send the media to convey our goodwill and strive to recruit them into our “Ghost Talk Investigation Bureau”.
Be sure to find this person before the other countries do!”

“Yes sir!”

He paused and finally got to the point.
“This meeting, in addition to ‘Coffee,’ the main matter is to discuss No.

As soon as “No.
0” was mentioned, the people who were still sluggish became more energized.
Qin Feng also sat up straight.
“Did that guy appear again?”

The old man nodded.
“Our investigator ‘Xie He,’ who was deeply involved in the “Thirteenth Middle School,” risked his life to send us this information with his ghost talk props.
0 came to the school today and met with the principal in his office.
He has no way of knowing what happened after that.”

“So it seems our former deduction was wrong.
0’ may have a higher status in the world of ghost talks than the rulers of the four major [Fixed Rules Ghost Talks], even though he appeared later than them.” Tang Ling’s beautiful face was filled with a serious expression.
She was one of the members of the “Ghost Talk Investigation Bureau.”

“We think so too.
The danger level of ‘No.
0’ has been raised to SSS.
Our next goal is to fully explore his identity.” After saying this, the old man sighed.
“Since the appearance of ‘No.
0’ two years ago, the difficulty of ghost talks has risen to a higher level.
We have to eliminate him at all costs, understand?”

“Yes sir!”

On another side, many foreign forces have also begun operating.

“Damn it.
Why isn’t this ‘Coffee’ one of our citizens? Isn’t ‘Coffee’ a standard match with our beautiful people?”

“Give all you have to find this person.
They are surely not an official investigator of China.
Find them, then recruit them or dispose of them!”

“Our country needs such talents.
China already has a lot of talents, so I’m sure they won’t mind sending one to us.”


In just ten minutes after the news was released, the whole world began searching for this famous investigator named ‘Coffee’.

‘Coffee’ herself was already on her way home.

After dying in a ghost talk, you would not die immediately.
Instead, your memory would be wiped and you would die randomly due to various reasons within a week.
No one has been able to prevent this random death so far, the situation comparable to a reaper’s call.

As the sole survivor, Su Rong wanted to take a last look at her former companions.
But during the time they had chatted casually, they had discovered everyone was taken from supermarkets across the country into the ghost talk, so Su Rong couldn’t find anyone at all.

But this also greatly protected her own privacy and safety.
Not counting Wang Jianguo, everyone else had lost their memories, and they would die within a week.
Naturally, it’d be hard to reveal her identity.

And Wang Jianguo……

Su Rong pursed her lips and couldn’t help sighing.
She didn’t know what happened to Wang Jianguo.
According to the previous broadcast, she had successfully destroyed the ghost talk.
But Wang Jianguo had already become a staff member at that time.
It could be even said he was integrated into that ghost talk.

The story was destroyed, could he really survive?

Arriving at her door, she put her hand in her pocket to grab her house key.

“Huh? What’s this?”

She frowned and took out a key and a black wallet from her pocket.

The key was the key to her house, but where did this wallet come from?

As a qualified modern person, Su Rong was proficient in using various functions such as mobile pay, so naturally she didn’t carry a wallet on her.
What’s more, this was clearly a man’s wallet.

Was it stuffed in at the supermarket? Su Rong frowned, quickly opening the door and getting inside before opening the wallet.

Surprisingly, there was nothing inside except for two banknotes.

And these two 100 yuan bills turned out to be the banknotes used to clear the customs in the “Anle Supermarket” ghost talk!

Su Rong’s eyes were wide, quite puzzled.
“How did I bring this out?”

After a few seconds of surprise, her brain began to analyze automatically.

First of all, these two bills could not be used in reality, but only in the world of ghost talks.
If that was the case, then perhaps this was a reward for eliminating the source of pollution.

But what concerned her more was the wallet.

She was sure that the black wallet had another purpose.
After all, if this wallet was simply for holding bills, why not just put the money in her pocket, rather than giving her another purse?

She needed more knowledge to answer these questions.
Her original body’s knowledge about ghost talks was too shallow, not enough to answer her queries.

But before that……

Su Rong rubbed the center of her eyebrows tiredly, took a quick shower, then collapsed on the bed.
After just two days and one night, the drawbacks of ghost talks finally showed up.
Now she only felt mentally weak and drowsy.

In the ghost talk, her spirits were always highly tense, and she had to face various textual and psychological traps.
She had even witnessed various corpses.
Even for Su Rong, a detective who often assisted in police investigations, it was overwhelming.

Sleeping until the moon reached the treetops, Su Rong woke up leisurely.
She lay in a daze for a while, then jumped up from bed and went to the computer desk to search for news about ghost talks.

As soon as she clicked into the search engine, her eyes were attracted to the link at the top of the webpage— “Investigator ‘Coffee’, please click here.”

After a moment of hesitation, Su Rong chose to click it.

She was not afraid of revealing her identity.
After all, this link was visible to everyone, and there must’ve been a good number of curious folks who clicked on it too.
No one could track her down from the visitor data.

The only ones who could put this link at the top of the official browser was obviously the government.
The government chose to look for her at this time, simply to solicit and disclose some information.

She currently didn’t have any ideas about the other party’s solicitation, but she was very interested in the information she lacked.

Su Rong’s speculation was right.

“Dear Investigator ‘Coffee,’

The ‘Ghost Talk Investigation Bureau’ sincerely invites you to join us.
With us, you will get more information and better training.
If you have any concerns, please read the following content carefully.
It contains some basic information that investigators who have eliminated pollution sources need to know.”

After eliminating the source of pollution, you will get a reward item.
That is, a “ghost talk prop.”
The usage of these items must be explored by yourself. Please do not use these props in the real world.
Otherwise, you will be contaminated by “Him.” The frequency of re-entering the world of ghost talks is much higher for investigators who have eliminated pollution sources, rather than investigators who have cleared customs normally. The face, clothing, body, and voice of investigators who have eliminated pollution sources will be distorted by space, so there is no need to worry about being identified.

The four messages were short, but fully showed the government’s sincerity.
All four of these points were useful.

The first point’s purpose was to clear up what the black wallet was.
Presumably, it was the so-called reward item.
The second was to warn her.
After all, although the money couldn’t be used, she could’ve used the wallet.
The black wallet itself was also a gift from the ghost talk.
If she did use it, there was no guarantee she wouldn’t be contaminated by “Him.”

These damned ghost talks really dug pitfalls for investigators everywhere.

The third message was telling Su Rong that she would definitely enter the world of ghost talks again, and it wouldn’t take long.
In Anle Supermarket, Wang Jianguo told her that investigators would enter the world of ghost talks for a second time, but it was clear the government was deliberately concealing this information.

As for the last bullet point, it gave Su Rong some privacy and security so she didn’t have to worry about her identity being revealed, and so she wouldn’t have to rush to make a decision.

These messages were so sincere, they surprised her a little.
At least, if she were the one in power and wanted to take her into the organization, she wouldn’t have revealed this information.

If she didn’t know this information, she would definitely worry about the potential security risks caused by the leakage of her real face.
Knowing that many forces were looking for her, she must choose a side to protect herself.
The official organization, the “Ghost Talk Investigation Bureau,” was the best choice.

Facing such a sincere invitation, Su Rong couldn’t help but feel unsure.
Should she join the “Ghost Talk Investigation Bureau”?
