The Female Lead Is a Black Lotus Chapter 12 – Death

Luo Mei looked angrily at Liang Jing, when she handed it over to the other party last night, she had clearly instructed not to make any mistakes, and as the result!

Liang Jing didn’t dare to look directly at the other party, fearing that the other party might mistakenly think that she would have swallowed something, so she decided to transfer all the responsibility to Zhang Hua, but she couldn’t see the person even when she looked left or right.

“Where’s Zhang Hua, class time has been over for so long, why hasn’t Zhang Hua come yet?”

Zhu Guangtou glanced at the time, and most of the time was indeed delayed by this matter.

“Has anyone seen fellow student Zhang Hua, or has anyone taken a leave of absence for her, or I’ll mark Zhang Hua late.”

“It’s not good, it’s not good, it’s not good!” A panting voice came from Auxiliary Class 3’s well-known informant, Cheng Hou.

Zhu Guangtou, “What’s the point of yelling loudly during class time!”

Cheng Hou didn’t think that Zhu Guangtou was inside, so he shrank his head and said, “Zhang… Zhang Hua she… She”

“What’s wrong with her, say it quickly!” Liang Jing was worried about not finding Zhang Hua and urgently asked immediately.

“Zhang Hua, she’s dead!”

Everyone flinched dumbly at the words, including Luo Mei and Liang Jing.

“Ring-ring-ring.”

Zhu Guangtou’s cell phone suddenly rang, he picked it up, and his face changed dramatically.

After leaving a sentence of “self-study in this class”, he hurried out.

Cheng Hou followed closely after him and slipped away.

The classroom was instantly boisterous.

“Zhang Hua is dead, did I hear that right?”

“That can’t be, wasn’t she fine yesterday?”

“Didn’t you guys see Zhu Guangtou’s face change just now, I think it is probably true.”

“Right Nanzi, aren’t you in the same dorm as Zhang Hua, do you know anything about this?”

Nanzi’s face was full of incredulity, and she was a little overwhelmed by the others’ questions, saying, “I… I don’t know, she didn’t come back all night last night and calling her phone didn’t work.”

The words fell into Lin Siyi’s ears, astonished, “Wasn’t she in the dorm last night?”

Seeing Lin Siyi’s surprised appearance, Nanzi got angry out of nowhere and blurted out, “I still want to ask you what happened to the money you put on Zhang Hua’s table last night!”

“Tell me honestly, did you blackmail Zhang Hua so that she didn’t even dare to go back to her dormitory, and that’s why something happened!”

As soon as this was said, the surrounding people’s discussion was directed towards Lin Siyi.

Lin Siyi remembered the sound of footsteps last night, and there was a hidden answer calling out in her heart, “Are you sure that Zhang Hua never returned to the dormitory last night, including when I went there?”

Nanzi’s eyes were red with anger, “Nonsense, if she had come back yesterday she might not have been in trouble!”

At this time Chen Xing came over, she pushed the frame on the bridge of her nose and purposely kept her distance from Lin Siyi, “Yesterday I saw you take Zhang Hua’s money.”

Nanzi and the crowd instantly looked at her.

Chen Xing, “At that time, Zhang Hua’s expression was on the verge of tears.”

Nanzi shouted, “Then why didn’t you stop her, it was clearly written in the school rules that no malicious extortion of classmates was allowed!”

Chen Xing, “I… I was watching,”

Someone else said, “Chen Xing, you’re in the same dorm as Lin Siyi, it’s not like you’re an accomplice, right?”

Chen Xing shouted, “Don’t talk nonsense, how can I be like her!”

After saying that, they sneaked a glance at Lin Siyi in front of them.

It turned out that the other party wasn’t listening to them at all.

Lin Siyi leaned in front of Nan Xueqing and whispered, “Xueqing, I know who last night’s footsteps were.”

Nan Xueqing’s eyes were on her.

“Just now Nanzi said that Zhang Hua didn’t return to the dormitory last night, but at the time I had truly seen her!”

“You also said that it should be someone who just died, so I guess that sound of footsteps should be Zhang Hua’s.”

Nan Xue replied back lightly, “Do you know why everyone in the other courtyards think that the people in C Courtyard are haunted?”

“Why?”

“Because they have eyes that can see ghosts, and we don’t.”

Lin Siyi was stunned, “You mean me.”

Nan Xueqing looked at her, “Just contact Director Qiu if you want to transfer to the hospital.”

Lin Siyi’s head instantly shook like a rattle when she remembered that Director Qiu who had trained her in the teacher’s office when she first arrived.

“No, no, no, I think it’s just a coincidence. I’m just a little healer who loves to support, living as a member of this class and dying as a member of this class.”

Lin Siyi looked at the female lead, her eyes were sincere and determined.

She didn’t want to leave the female lead, knowing that up until now she didn’t know exactly who had killed the original owner, so so far it was only safe to be by the female lead’s side!

After the class ended, Lin Siyi followed closely behind the female lead.

Nan Xueqing stopped and turned around, “What else do you want?”

Lin Siyi smiled, “I’ll go to the medical room with you, to see Xiao Rui.”

“I don’t have to go today.”

“Ah?”

Lin Siyi was a bit torn, if the female lead didn’t go, she would miss the chance to brush up her goodwill.

But Xiao Rui also had to be seen, it couldn’t be delayed any longer.

Nan Xueqing looked at her, with some confusion in her eyes, “Zhang Hua is dead, are you not sad?”

“Huh?”

For Lin Siyi, at least so far, she didn’t feel like any of this was particularly real, let alone the people inside.

Just like a fake npc, each has their own lives and has nothing to do with her, like a passerby.

So why the sadness?

“And yes, you’re not supposed to be sad.”

Lin Siyi was a bit confused1.

Nan Xueqing said again, “Let’s go.”

“Go where?”

“Aren’t you going to see Xiao Rui? I’ll accompany you.”

Accompany… Accompany?

The female lead said she would accompany her?

Lin Siyi’s face was immediately filled with a smile, it was not bad for the woman she had slept with for two nights!


1 Me too.


Translator: This chapter was pretty short compared ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ and Institute and Courtyard are the same thing when it says “C Institute/Courtyard”. Sometimes the Courtyard sounds better than Institute and vice versa (don’t make me change it please), anyways, feel free to support this novel on Ko-fi if you enjoyed it and want more chapters.

    1. You’re welcome and no. I’m sure she died back in beginning of chapter 9 and became a ghost, so Mc was talking to the ghost of Zhang Hua because she “physically” never returned

  1. I’m a bit disappointed with this chapter. Seems like the author went ten steps in a circle to indirectly use the “female character sees ghosts” trope by inventing a bunch of magical powers. Maybe this gives the story more range later?

    1. Not going to spoil it but in a few more chapters it’ll briefly mention the MC’s eyes. Unfortunately, it doesn’t go more in the details but hopefully we’ll find out more soon.
