Chapter 707: Ghost postman (3)

Even though the roads in the town were paved with stones and sand, they were mostly flat. For brother Jue, who was wearing sports shoes, it did not take him much effort to walk on these roads.

However, the distance was an objective existence, and brother Jue’s prediction of ‘reducing stamina points based on the character’s senses’ was not wrong. Therefore, he still had to allocate his stamina points reasonably to avoid unnecessary waste.

“Hmm … The actual distance is further than I thought …” Feng bujue walked for almost twenty minutes, but he still had not reached the town square. This forced him to pick up his pace.”Furthermore, there is not a single person along the way, and the shops along the street are all closed …” He could not help but think, this … Could not be a ghost town, right?”

嗞嗞嗞嗞嗞嗞……

Just as brother Jue was deep in thought, a rhythmic rustling came from the fog ahead.

And that sound was getting closer and closer, approaching at a rather fast speed.

“What’s this?” When brother Jue heard that, he stopped in alert. Without thinking, he reached into his pocket and grabbed his phone, ready to face the monster.

The sound was getting closer and closer, but there was still no one in sight.

Ding Ling Ling Ling

Suddenly, the crisp sound of bells entered brother Jue’s ears, and the direction of the sound was the same as the “Ping Ping” sound.

“Eh?” At that moment, Feng bujue seemed to have realized something.

He looked down at the ground, and two seconds later, he narrowed his eyes and said,””What the … It’s really a bicycle …”

Ding Ling Ling Ling

Before he finished speaking, the bell rang again. This time, the sound was even closer, almost in front of him.

Brother Jue’s reaction was timely. He immediately dodged to the side and jumped a few steps away.

Then, he saw a trail left by a bicycle tire “passing” by where he had just been standing.

“What the hell …” Feng bujue turned to look into the air and said in a low voice,”invisible?”

Out of his detective instincts (well, I know he’s a detective author), he immediately took a few steps forward, squatted down, and checked the tire marks. He muttered to himself,””The pattern on the tire marks has been smoothed out, which means it has been used for a long time … Judging from the depth of the tire marks and the sound of the bike, it should be an old metal bicycle with chains, and a heavier person … Hmm … Or a ghost …” He touched his lower lip and said,”the sound of the chain rolling sounds very smooth, and the other parts of the body are not making any sound. This means that … Although the bike is often used, it is well maintained.”

“Ah!” As he thought about it, Feng bujue suddenly slapped his forehead.”I’m getting addicted to this game …” He raised his wrist to look at his watch.”Tsk … If I don’t hurry, I won’t be able to make it.”

According to the voice of the self-proclaimed post office chief in the opening CG, the players had to reach “his” office before “nineo’ clock in the morning”. It was already 8:52 pm, but brother Jue had not even seen the post office yet.

“So I still have to run …” He quickly stood up and ran. Anyway, there was no one on the street, and there were no vehicles either. Other than the “invisible bicycle” he had just encountered, he was not afraid of bumping into anything.

Speaking of which … The current main mission [obtain the recognition of the ghost postman and become the new postman of the town of aotaku]… Doesn’t have a ‘time’ requirement.” As Feng bujue ran, he thought to himself, the chief of post office told me to arrive before nine … In other words, even if I arrive after nine, the main mission might not fail. However … The progression of the plot and the difficulty of the scenario might change because of this. ”

The more he thought about it, the more he felt that … It was best not to be late.

…………

After four minutes …

“We’re finally here …” After running for a long distance, a circular square appeared before Feng bujue.

The roads of the aotaku square were paved with cement, and only a few areas were paved with stone bricks. There was a simple fountain in the center of the square, but the water in the fountain had dried up. The buildings around the square were relatively tall, and most of them were public facilities, such as police stations, fire stations, hospitals, and so on.

Brother Jue ran North without stopping (he could still find North), and soon he saw the post office sign.

Two floors, about three hundred square meters … Feng bujue thought to himself as he rushed to the door of the post office. The worst scenario is … There is no floor plan, and there is no one for me to ask for directions … I have to find the director’s office by myself within three minutes.

With this in mind, he pushed open the thick glass door in front of him.

“Very good …” Brother Jue said the moment he entered the room. This was because he realized that … The first floor of the post office was a lobby. Other than the service desk on the right side of the entrance, there was only a row of Windows for various business.

“Is it there …” His eyes quickly swept around and instantly stopped at the stairway to the second floor. There was a sign next to the stairs that said “office area, no unauthorized entry”. This was a more obvious hint.

When he ran up the stairs, Feng bujue took the time to check the time.

[ 8:58]

“Break room, security room, accounting room, toilet …” Feng bujue ran as fast as he could up to the second floor. Finally, at 8:59:40, he arrived at the last room at the end of the corridor.”The director’s office …” He mumbled to himself as he looked at the sign on the door. Then he lowered his head to look at his watch.”Phew … There are still ten seconds left … That was close.”

“Dong Dong Dong!”

As he looked at his watch, his left hand was already knocking on the door.

“Please come in.” The voice from inside the door was the same as the voice-over in the opening cinematic.

When Feng bujue heard that, he took a deep breath and wiped his sweat. Then, he grabbed the doorknob and pushed the door open.

The furnishings in the room were very ordinary. In addition to the office table and chair, there were a few filing cabinets, a glass cabinet, two bonsai plants, and two flags. Brother Jue could recognize that the one with the star stripes was the United States flag, but he did not know what the other side was … However, normally speaking, it should be the flag of the town or the state where it was located.

“I have to say … You’ve left me with a very bad impression from the beginning, Mr. Dave,” Before brother Jue could say anything, the man sitting behind the desk said something that was not good.

It was an old man in a checkered suit and black-framed round eyes. He looked to be over 60 years old, but his eyes were still bright and his back was straight.

“Do you have any opinions on my clothes or hairstyle? Mister. ” Naturally, Feng bujue was not the kind of person who would be at a loss when faced with an unexpected situation. After hearing the strange criticism, he raised a question calmly and closed the door behind him.

“No, I’m very tolerant of my employees ‘appearance.” The director replied,”I only have one request … And that is to be ‘punctual’.” When he said the last two words, he especially emphasized them.

“The moment I knocked on your door, it was 8:59: 45.” Feng bujue met the man’s gaze fearlessly and replied,”this did not exceed the time you specified, did it?”

“I see …” As the chief spoke, he raised his hand and showed his watch to brother Jue.”Your watch is three minutes late.”

“Ha?” Feng bujue’s expression changed.”No way …” He then took out the phone from his pocket and pressed it. “That’s right … The time on my watch and phone is the same, both …”

“We’re all three minutes late. ” The chief interrupted brother Jue.

“Er …” Feng bujue narrowed his eyes and looked at the old man before him.”Is it possible that it’s your cousin …”

“Impossible.” Before brother Jue said ‘three minutes faster’, the director had already rejected his hypothesis.

“Alright,” he said. Two seconds later, Feng bujue adjusted his expression.”I was wrong.”

Brother Jue was a reasonable man. He knew that under certain circumstances, the truth was not important, but the attitude was.

A leader is a leader. Even if he doesn’t know what’s good for him, you should try your best not to correct him or contradict him. Otherwise … You’ll be asking for a snub. Of course, there are also good leaders who promote you because you embarrass them … If you think you’re lucky enough to meet one, you might as well give it a try. Don’t blame me if you die …

“No, you’re not wrong.”

He never expected that the director’s attitude would take a 180-degree turn the next second.

“Ah?” This time, Feng bujue was truly stunned.

“My watch is indeed three minutes faster, and I’m aware of that,” The director continued,”the reason why I’m accusing you is that I want to see … In the face of pressure, will you compromise to power or will you stick to the truth.”

“There’s no need to go this far …” Feng bujue stared at the man with his dead fish eyes.”Just treat it as me respecting the elderly … Can you please let me go?”

“Do you think I’m old?” The director followed brother Jue’s lead and threw him another difficult question.

“Yes,” Feng bujue replied directly. Since the man wanted to hear the truth, he would tell him the truth. Whether or not it sounded bad was another matter.”I feel that if I were to argue with you seriously, you might die from a blood vessel rupture, so I admitted my mistake.”

“Very good!” The director slammed the table and stood up.

This action … Made Feng bujue take half a step back instinctively. For a moment, brother Jue felt like the old man was going to flip the table and beat him up.

“Let’s get to know each other officially. ” The director straightened his back and extended his right hand.”I’m the director of the post office in the town of otaku, Norman. Narson. ”

“Hmm…Hello, Mr. Nelson.” Feng bujue hesitated for half a second before he reached out.

“Call me Norman, thank you.” At this moment, narson had an amiable smile on his face.

“It’s a pleasure to meet you, Norman,” Feng bujue replied with a smile.

Even though he looked friendly on the surface, brother Jue did not stop his observation and analysis of the NPC. “He’s a man who’s very good at using words and expressions. He’s very bold when he’s serious, and he’s very infectious when he’s friendly. He’s even stronger than me when he’s shaking my hand … Well … All of these are typical traits of a politician.” His gaze moved over the man’s body.”His collar, sleeves, and hands all show that he had a military background.” The longer he looked at it, the more detailed he knew.”His hair is meticulous and his beard is trimmed very well. This shows that he still cares about his appearance. The third button of his shirt had been sewn, and there were also signs that he had done so on his elbow, indicating that he was a thrifty person. There were traces of a ring on her left ring finger, but it was gone now … Was she going to divorce? Or a widower?”

A series of thoughts flashed through his mind in just a few seconds.

After the two shook hands, narson continued,””Mr. Dave, as you can see, I like straightforward people.” As he spoke, he sat back down and raised his hand to signal for brother Jue to sit on the chair on the other side of the desk.”With me, you don’t have to be afraid of offending people with your words, and you don’t have to worry about your appearance …” He paused.”You just have to remember two words … One, punctuality, and two, determination.”

“It sounds like … I’ve already passed the interview?” Feng bujue asked.

“Ha … Pass? “Hahaha …” Narson laughed.”Far from it, Mr. Dave.” As he spoke, he opened the drawer in front of him and took out a stack of envelopes.”The philosophy of our Bureau is to put our employees into practice. It’s the only standard to test them.”

“That sounds familiar …” Feng bujue mumbled.

Narson ignored him and continued,””Whether you can be officially hired by my Bureau will depend on your performance today.” He pushed the envelope to brother Jue and said,”this is your mission for today.”

[Side quest triggered.] As soon as narson finished speaking, the system’s voice message sounded.

Feng bujue immediately opened the game menu. He glanced at the mission panel and saw the new mission.”Send all the letters before midnight. Current progress: 0/13.”

Since it’s a side quest, it means I don’t have to do it … Brother Jue thought to himself. To put it simply, if I finish the quest before midnight, I’ll get an extra reward. If I don’t finish it … I won’t fail the scenario.

“This is the map of the town of aotaku.” A few seconds later, narson pulled out a 20* 40-cm mini-map from his drawer and placed it on the table.”And … A work manual.” He then took out a small booklet.”And … Your bicycle key.” This should be the last item, because he closed the drawer after taking it out.”Go out from the back door and you’ll reach the shed. The satchel with the envelope is in the bicycle pocket. As you are not yet an official employee of my Bureau, so…You can only wear casual clothes to deliver the letter today. ” He paused for two seconds and looked at brother Jue’s face.”Any more questions? Mr. Dave. ” (To be continued.)
