Chapter 94: Become a God From Today On (6)
The exhibition was at the public museum in the city.
By the time Xu Shenxing went there, it was already crowded with people.
“Is it really okay for you to come so late?” While being squeezed around in the crowd, Xu Shenxing asked Keikain Haruka beside him, “I think things are most likely to be stolen in this kind of chaos, right?”
Perhaps for ordinary people ‘large crowds’ ‘in plain sight’ means no connection with theft, but Xu Shenxing has long known after experiencing so many supernatural events firsthand, for the supernatural, common sense of ordinary people does not work.
Just Xu Shenxing himself has at least three ways to take the exhibits inside in front of everyone.
“With shikigami around, it’s okay.”
Keikain Haruka puffed out her cheeks expressionlessly and muttered in a voice that was hard to hear clearly from the crowd.
In fact, she had long planned to take advantage of the confusion to get rid of Xu Shenxing, but for some reason even if she escaped by burrowing through the crowd and using others to block Xu Shenxing’s view, after a while Xu Shenxing would be squeezed by the crowd to her side again …
After several consecutive failed attempts to escape, she gave up and was squeezed around by the crowd with Xu Shenxing.
The two of them (along with six spirit ghosts) were able to buy their tickets and successfully enter the museum after waiting in line for a while.
“By the way, you are the security guard of the exhibition, don’t you have a work permit to let us in directly?”
The people inside the museum finally looked a little less than outside. Xu Shenxing wiped the sweat off his head and asked.
“No.” The young girl replied dryly.
After all, the Bureau of Onmyō is not an organization that can be put on the stage. In the mortal world, this scale of exhibition naturally has special security companies to protect. If the Bureau of Onmyō sent a few teams, they can disguise themselves as ordinary security personnel. But Keikain Haruka is obviously underage, so she couldn’t pretend to be security personnel.
This is one of the reasons why Haruka felt that there was something fishy about this mission before.
“Ohhh, there’s actually a Kappa Kawataro’s body! Is this real?”
It didn’t take long for Xu Shenxing to start wandering around, excitedly visiting the exhibits.
“It’s a Kappa Kawataro mummy Ryuji Temple in Osaka. It’s the real thing.”
As an insider, Keikain Haruka naturally has knowledge of strange and unusual things.
But that’s precisely why she found it more and more strange.
The monks at Ryuji Temple actually allow to put this mummy on display, it is so unusual.
Not only that. In this hall alone, she recognized eight supernatural objects. In addition to the mummy and the dried mermaid corpse, there is also the Onimaru Kunitsuna that was supposed to be hidden in Fuso’s Miyauchi Hall.
This is really anomalous for an exhibition.
Even in large museums, often there are only one or two pieces in a hall that would be related to supernatural beings or forces.
Suddenly, Xu Shenxing wrapped his arms around Keikain Haruka as affectionately as a couple, startling the girl who was still lost in her own thoughts.
Just as the girl was about to struggle to get up, Xu Shenxing whispered in her ear, “Right behind, there’s a strange guy stalking.”
Haruka was startled and quietly connected to the shikigami vision she had left in the exhibition hall, and sure enough, she saw a strange person in the direction Xu Shenxing had pointed out.
He should be a male.
It was summer, but the man was wearing long sleeves and knee-high jeans, with a duck-tongue hat on top of his head. His face was more like a human skin mask with no expression on it rather than expressionless.
His hands are hanging low, and the few exposed skins have a strange bulge.
As if sensing that he had been discovered, the man lowered his duck-top hat and limped away.
Xu Shenxing and Keikain hurriedly followed him.
There are too many people in the museum, even if Xu Shenxing doesn’t want to start a battle here.
As for why they have to start a battle, the reason is simple.
Xu Shenxing likes to use his hands more than to use his brain. In his words, as long as he used the “physical method”, he was able to solve most of the situation. And he has been using his own behavior to illustrate this statement.
Keikain Haruka is in a sense the same kind of person as Xu Shenxing. Although she always quietly reads books in school, in reality, she also prefers direct action.
However, when the two chased out of the museum, they found that the people outside obstructed their view.
Even with the power of the spirit ghosts and shikigami, they still lost sight of the man.
It was almost as if the man had suddenly disappeared.
“What do you think?” Xu Shenxing walked to the side of the road, looked next to him, and asked with a frown.
Keikain Haruka replied succinctly.
That guy is as obvious as a bug in human skin. He keeps emitting the aura of ‘Come and check me out, I’m actually not human~’.
“No, I’m asking you how about eating this for dinner.” Xu Shenxing pointed to the long stick-like object in front of him that was covered with small bumps and emitted a strange smell.
“I refuse.” Haruka replied without hesitation, “Also please don’t look at the bitter melon with ulterior motives, thank you.”
“I’m telling you, only people with dirt in their heads will look at everything and think it’s dirty … wait, I’m kidding, don’t go, I don’t know the way, don’t leave me …”
