Chapter 42

The original work is a danmei horror mystery novel, it has a high popularity on the website. It was a great honor to be able to find himself making the illustration for this novel.

It’s because of the high heat of the original work that Fu Zhen feels great pressure, what kind of style should he use? Most of the horror novel color insert has dark corridors, bloody sheets or pale faced characters, such color inserts are really difficult to paint. He just want to paint different style, and hope it can give people a strange feeling and wanted that the picture would not be too bloody.

Fu Zhen pressed his forehead to think for a while and type the words Guernica on the keyboard. Guernica is the background of Picasso’s bombing– killing of innocent people, in small town of Northern Spain. A huge oil painting was created, this painting is combination of Cubism, Realism and Surrealism, giving people a strong sense of tension and horror.

He doesn’t have the level of Picasso, he just wants to try to imitate this style to draw a color insert for the author, but he has to ask the author’s opinion before painting it. After all this style does not seem to be very acceptable.

The author is a very happy person, after knowing Fu Zhen’s thoughts, he immediately responded and let Fu Zhen draw freely.

Based on the spoilers he searched on the internet, the personal setting that the original author sent him, and the key points extracted from each case, Fu Zhen quickly figured out the composition and after his thinking became clear, Fu Zhen picked up quickly. When he finally finished editing the sketch he looked up and found that it was almost one o’clock in the morning.

He packed up his things and went to bed to rest.

January is approaching quietly, in the New Year nothing seems to have changed but it was quiet the opposite.

In the morning Fu Zhen took his computer to a computer repair shop, the technician shook his head and sighed,

“Your computer… I can repair this now but there will be definitely problems in two days. The computer has been used for several years, why not replace it.”

Fu Zhen hummed in responses at the technician’s words,

“I’ll just used it for a while.”

After the technician did some operations, the computer could be used normally. Fu Zhen gave the technician the fee and returned to the rental house with the computer in his arms, and continued with the unfinished color insert last night.

Today is New Year’s Day. Most of the tenants in the rental house went out to play, it wasn’t until two or three o’clock in the afternoon that they came back, they bought with them small and large bags. The original quiet room gradually became noisy and people talked about new things they had encountered in the past two days.

Fu Zhen stayed quietly drawing pictures in the room, when it was getting dark outside and when it was time to turn on the lights in the room, he raised his head and glanced at the lower right corner of the computer screen, it was five o’clock.

It was estimated that Jiang Hengshu was about to return from work. Fu Zhen turned off the computer and walked out of the room, he sat on the sofa in the living room, not far away several tenants were playing cards, laughter and cursing continued, the kitchen smelled of food—someone was preparing a great dinner.

Hearing the sound of the creaking door Fu Zhen raised his head and looked at the door, the person who walked in was not Jiang Hengshu, Fu Zhen dropped his head and slid his fingers back and forth on the phone screen.

In the next twenty minutes several people walked in and out but none of them were Jiang Hengshu, Fu Zhen held the phone tightly. Why wasn’t Jiang Hengshu not back yet? Did he forget that he had an appointment with him tonight for dinner?

There was the another sound of the creaking door, this time Fu Zhen didn’t look up, the footsteps got closer and closer and finally stopped not far from him.

Fu Zhen put down his phone and raised his head, he saw Jiang Hengshu standing not too far and looking at him, his blue eyes were as clear and calm as lake.

“You’re back?” Fu Zhen stood up and ask him

Jiang Hengshu nodded and said to him,

“I’ll change my clothes and wait for me.”

“Yeah.” Fu Zhen turned around and watched Jiang Hengshu return to his room.

Soon after, Jiang Hengshu walk out of the room wearing a black trench coat, he came to Fu Zhen side and said,

“Let’s go.”

Fu Zhen and Jiang Hengshu walked out of the crowded building like a honeycomb. As soon as they walked out of the building the cold wind swept over with icy snow particles Fu Zhen shrank his neck, turned his head to look at Jiang Hengshu and said to him,

“I didn’t ask you yesterday, what do you want to eat?”

“Anything.”

“Are there any allergies?”

“None.”

Fu Zhen thought about several restaurants but he felt that there is no need to ask the next question,

“Then shall we go it barbeque?”

“Ok.”

Anything, no, um, every response was very short to the extreme, Fu Zhen sighed lightly, walked along the road and called a taxi, got in the car with Jiang Hengshu.

The air condition was turned on in the car and it was a little stuffy. Fu Zhen looked out the window, the street lights along the road were already on, embellishing some shabby city edges with completely different scenery during the day.
