Zheng Wei returned to the white space.

“Welcome back, Mr.
Zheng,” a voice immediately sounded in the space.
It was the system called little eleven that he had encountered before.

As soon as he entered the space, all the pain and fatigue on Zheng Wei’s body disappeared.
He finally had the time and energy to confront the system.

He walked back and forth in the empty space, trembling all over.

“Who can tell me what the hell is going on?” Zheng Wei questioned the empty space with an excited and hoarse voice.

The mental state of a person who has survived a disaster is usually not very stable, and Zheng Wei is already considered restrained.

“I’m very sorry.” System Eleven seemed very ashamed and quickly apologized.
“We put you in such a dangerous situation due to our work errors.
I’m really sorry.”

“What’s the use of apologizing, what’s the use?!” Zheng Wei took a deep breath.
He found that he couldn’t calm down at all.
He walked back and forth in this vast system space, unable to control himself.

Anyone who has experienced all of this would not be able to remain calm.
The feeling of impending death is so real.
Although Zheng Wei is physically unharmed now, his psyche has suffered great damage.

Zheng Wei also felt that his current emotional state was not right, but he couldn’t stop himself.
His mood now was like a boiling pot of oil, with various mixed thoughts that made him want to tear down this ghostly place.

As if sensing his restlessness, the space changed.
The bright white turned into a dreamy soft blue.
A beam of light shone down on Zheng Wei’s head, enveloping him.

This light seemed to have magical power.
Zheng Wei bathed in it and felt as if his mind and body had been washed.
His mind gradually regained clarity, and his restless mood began to calm down.

After staying in the blue light for a while, Zheng Wei took a deep breath, as if he had also exhaled all his negative emotions.
His face became more relaxed.

“Do you feel better now?” After a while, System Eleven asked cautiously.

“Ah…” Zheng Wei let out a long sigh.
The blue light had made him feel much better, and now he was finally calm enough to discuss the situation calmly.

He stretched out his hands and covered his face, finding a place to sit down casually.
He was too tired, not physically exhausted, but mentally exhausted.

“I’m really sorry, Mr.
Zheng.” Seeing Zheng Wei like this, System Eleven also panicked.
His mechanical voice was mixed with some noises that sounded like crying.

“It’s all my fault, please forgive me.”

“Tsk.” Zheng Wei lifted his head.
“Are you crying?”

“That sounds terrible.” Now that he had recovered, he felt like teasing the system.

The system didn’t say anything, but the sharp static noise told Zheng Wei that the strange system was indeed crying.

“I’m sorry for losing my temper just now.” Zheng Wei couldn’t stand someone crying, so he wiped his face and apologized to System eleven.

“It’s okay, it’s okay.” Surprised that Zheng Wei would apologize, System eleven quickly said, “It’s all my fault, I should be the one apologizing to you.”

“Okay, I accept your apology.” Zheng Wei also smiled.
“Stop apologizing and let’s move on to other questions.
I have many more questions for you.”

“Sure, go ahead.” System eleven answered carefully.
“Firstly, why couldn’t Julian be killed?”

“Julian is not human.” System eleven thought for a moment before explaining, “As the mission background stated, Julian Cole was a sacrifice intended for the evil god by his parents.”

“But the sacrifice failed, right?” Zheng Wei was puzzled.
Didn’t all the people who participated in the gathering get killed? He recalled the background information he had read and thought that Julian had escaped unscathed.

“Not exactly.
The sacrifice had already begun long before Julian Cole was born,” System eleven explained.
“Strictly speaking, Julian’s parents did not offer him to the evil god but offered themselves to the evil god.
They willingly sacrificed their wombs to become the bearers of the evil god, using the birth of the evil god to bring its arrival into the human world.”

“So you’re saying Julian is a god?” Zheng Wei furrowed his brow.
No wonder he was so shocked.
If he had known Julian was a god, he wouldn’t have dared to provoke him.

“No,” System eleven denied Zheng Wei’s conjecture.

“The sacrifice failed, and the evil god did not fully descend into that world.
Julian is a failed product, not entirely human, but not a god either.
He is a tainted soul, an evil spirit that walks among humans.”

“It’s like Jason in the horror movie ‘Black Friday the 13th’ in your world,” System eleven felt that language alone was not enough to describe it, so it gave an example to Zheng Wei.

“Mm, I understand.
But speaking of which, Julian looks much better if he looked like Jason, maybe I could have taken action earlier,” Zheng Wei joked with System eleven, now that his emotions had calmed down.

However, he suddenly realized that if it were Jason, the small surgical knife he was carrying wouldn’t be of much use.
Thinking about this, he remembered the unexpected kiss and his expression became somewhat awkward.

System eleven didn’t know what Zheng Wei had done in that world.
If he knew, he would probably short-circuit immediately.

“Okay, next question,” Zheng Wei shook his head and shook off those random thoughts.
“Will every task I encounter in the future be like Julian, an evil spirit?”

“Not necessarily, there are all kinds of things in horror stories, evil spirits, ghosts, monsters, and even humans are possible,” System eleven thought for a moment and said.

“I’ll remember to remind you in every world from now on.
This time was my mistake, I’m sorry,” he apologized to Zheng Wei again sincerely.

Now Zheng Wei understood.
He nodded and compared the movie’s masked killer, Jason, to Julian.

“No, there won’t be a next time,” interrupted Zheng Wei.
“Even if you didn’t make a mistake, I wouldn’t have succeeded.”

System eleven was confused and didn’t understand what he meant.

“I’ve been wanting to ask you,” Zheng Wei’s expression turned serious.
“Why did the system choose me?”

“I’m not smart, not strong, and don’t have any special abilities.
Even if you put me in that world with a system, I wouldn’t be able to become a hero and save the world.”

“You’re supposed to protect cannon fodder, right? Then why did you choose me? I can’t even protect myself, let alone them.”

Zheng Wei became somewhat emotional.
He had thought things were so simple, but the fact proved otherwise. 

He was still the ordinary Zheng Wei, and just because he had been sent to another world with a system didn’t mean he could become a hero, protect the world, and slaughter enemies.

“I can’t protect them, so sending me to that world was useless.
It just gave the devil’s son one more head to collect.
What’s the point of that?”

The blue light soothed Zheng Wei’s emotions, but couldn’t heal the scars in his heart.
Everything he had experienced at St.
Philip’s Hospital had filled him with fear and self-blame.
He had lost the courage to undertake the next mission.

“Choose someone stronger, I cannot complete the mission nor save them,” Zheng Wei said, his throat tight as he buried his head in his knees.

“We have already signed a contract.
If you give up now, you will die,” System Eleven said to Zheng Wei after a moment of silence.

“I don’t care,” Zheng Wei said, trying to sound nonchalant.
“I was already dead in the real world anyway, wasn’t I?” He remembered the System telling him that his body had died in a car accident.

System Eleven fell silent, and the space grew quiet for a while.

“We didn’t choose you,” System Eleven spoke up again after a long pause.

“The world you are assigned to execute the mission in chose you, not us.
We are merely executors and do not have the right to choose the mission’s performer.”

“What do you mean?” Zheng Wei furrowed his brows.

“The mission worlds have their own protective mechanisms.
Anything that does not belong to their world will be rejected.”

“Only souls that match with these worlds can travel through them to perform the mission.
But such souls are very rare.
For example, in the Horror world sector where you are, we searched for a long time in all the worlds before finally finding you as a suitable candidate.”

“If we had the authority to select taskers, we would certainly want to choose someone who can solve all of this, rather than an ordinary person like you.”

“Wait a minute.” Zheng Wei suddenly remembered something: “You told me before that I could switch to a different section? If soul compatibility is necessary, then how does switching sections work?”

“Oh, that.” System Eleven hesitated for a moment, and then began to speak evasively, “That was just a lie~”

“If you request to switch sections, we’ll change the name of the horror section to something you can accept, but in the end, you still have to go into these horror worlds to perform the tasks.”

Zheng Wei was shocked by the shamelessness of the system and forgot to criticize it.
