When she reached the door of the cellar, Huo Mian hesitated .
Suddenly, she didn’t dare to open that small square door .
The door was on the ground and she had to grab the handle and pull the door up .
Then she must climb down the black ladder .
Even during the daytime, climbing down the cellar was a scary thing, especially when it was a cellar on an inhabited island .
Inhaling deeply, Huo Mian mustered her courage and pulled up the cellar door abruptly .
Gloomy cold air poured onto her face, making her shiver .
Cautiously, she gripped the flashlight she had taken from her room and climbed down little by little on the ladder .
When she got to the bottom, she was surprised to see that the cellar was very big .
It wasn’t like the small and damp cellars she had seen in the mountainous village .
It was surprisingly dry . With green stones as walls, the cellar couldn’t be called a cellar since it was more luxurious than the basement of a luxurious house .
No wonder Huo Siqian liked to stay here; it was quite cool here .
Huo Mian saw lots of groceries and daily objects which were piled neatly in the basement .
From large boxes of whiskey, Lafite, and champagne to toilet paper and laundry detergent, there was everything in here .
The variety could almost match a small grocery store .
There were lots of unperishable food such as canned ham, fish, and bottled pickles; there were five to six boxes of each .
Huo Mian was a bit surprised .
No wonder Huo Siqian could cook different dishes each day; after all, he had stored so many groceries here .
Huo Mian walked deeper with the flashlight until she saw a small door at the end of the room .
The wall was built with green rocks, but this door was dark red and rusty, looking creepy .
The door wasn’t locked; Huo Mian was curious about what was behind the door .
Shining the door with her flashlight, she pushed open the door abruptly .
She saw another storage room behind the door . Read more chapters at Listnovel . com
She thought Huo Siqian must have bought this place long ago, because he couldn’t have built such a cellar in a couple of months .
As she thought, she walked deeper .
Then, a faint cough came .
Huo Mian felt her scalp tingle .
“Who?! Who’s there?” Huo Mian followed the sound and shone the flashlight in that direction .
She saw a figure curling up in the corner of the room .
“Huo Mian, I knew you’d come… Hehe . . ”
The man stood up slowly .
When she shone the light on the man’s face, she felt her hair stand on end .
It was so creepy .
This man was actually Huo Siqian, the man whom she thought had already left the island .
Why did he lock himself in here?
Instantly, lots of questions arose in her mind .
“Why… why are you here?” Huo Mian asked him, trying hard to stay calm .
“Why are you here?” he asked .
“I thought you left the island . So, I came down to find food as there’s no food up in the cottage,” said Huo Mian .
“Oh, I see…” He nodded and didn’t look surprised .
As Huo Mian remained silent, Huo Siqian beckoned at her and smiled . “Huo Mian, come here . ”
“Why?” Huo Mian looked at him warily; instead of walking forward, she took two steps back instinctively .
“I sprained my ankle and can’t walk . Can you help me?” he said with a smile .
