Cataclysm Card Emperor:Chapter 1: Naked Corpse

Ji Xun woke up in a completely unfamiliar room.

Two thoughts instantly popped into his mind.

First, lower back pain;
Second, jumping the immortal.

This is a sealed room, with walls of cement color all around, apart from a bed that looks like a toilet partition, there is no decoration. No windows, no furniture, it looks like a prison cell, an escape room, or some kind of special interest room.

But it’s definitely not a serious room.

Ji Xun was lying on the big bed himself, without clothes, and not in a good state of mind.

And there was a woman lying next to him, also without clothes.

After a few glances to confirm, yup, it’s all there.

This is a beautiful body, with delicate skin that intoxicates people, full breasts, and a delicate and slightly charming face.

“What… is going on?”

The suddenly intimate fortune made Ji Xun not feel romantic, but rather instinctively alert.

He tried hard to remember if he had a hangover, or if he had been hit on the head. But his memory is clear, he slept normally last night and woke up in this strange room.


Not a dream.

Ji Xun quickly confirmed this.

Although his waist was so sore that he could hardly straighten up, there was no wound and his lower back was obviously still there.

No group of heavily tattooed men rushed in to collect money either.

So it shouldn’t be the case of jumping the immortal, nor was it a lower back pain.

After taking another look at the beautiful woman beside him, Ji Xun reached out to touch her, wanting to wake her up and ask about the situation.

But just that touch, he immediately frowned.

A very abnormal touch.


Ji Xun’s expression instantly became serious, and he reached out to touch her skin again, so full and delicate, yet strangely cool to the touch.

This is not the body temperature that a living person should have.


A look of doubt flashed in Ji Xun’s eyes.

After a moment of contemplation, he reached out to explore the woman’s neck, and immediately seemed to detect something unusual, his expression becoming more and more grave.

Certainly no pulse was felt.

At this moment, he confirmed that this was a corpse.


Ji Xun looked at the corpse in front of him and the seriousness in his eyes gradually turned into puzzlement.

He’s not unfamiliar with a corpse, nor is he afraid of having slept with one.

What he finds strange is the “strangeness” of the corpse that he has never seen before.

Instead of the fleeting amazement, this more bizarre scene made him feel that something was really wrong.

Ji Xun thoroughly examined the body again, and found no noticeable wounds anywhere on her body.

Apart from the absence of heartbeat and breathing, her body temperature is almost the same as that of a normal person.

That’s the perplexing part.

Normally, the body temperature of a deceased person would gradually drop one degree per hour for about ten hours after death, and halve after ten hours, which means that it would take about a day for the body temperature to be the same as the ambient temperature.

Ji Xun had confirmed earlier, the body temperature of the woman in front of him was already close to room temperature.

By this estimate, her time of death is roughly twenty hours ago.

But here’s the problem.

A body begins to stiffen half an hour after death, and becomes completely stiff 9-12 hours later.

Yet this corpse has smooth skin, full and elastic, with no sign of joint stiffness.

This really makes people bewildered.

The environment is normal, the temperature is normal, so what’s wrong?

For the first time, Ji Xun began to doubt his judgment.

Could there be other factors affecting rigidity after death?

Or maybe…

This is not a person at all?

“A prank?”

As the thought emerged, Ji Xun carefully inspected the corpse again.

Pinching and examining every detail, he confirmed that she indeed has a normal skeletal and visceral structure, as well as body fluids in her mouth.

In other words, she is not a lifelike silicone doll for a prank, or some strange thing.

She is indeed a human corpse!

Ji Xun was really puzzled.

How could I have woken up here? How could there be such a strange corpse next to me?

Ji Xun’s eyes turned, and he pondered for a moment.

He didn’t look at the corpse again, but instead inspected the room’s environment.

This room is also very strange.

The rusty iron door is tightly closed, with no lock on the inside that could open it. It looks like a prison.

But judging from the thick, heavy, and complex structure of the lock, it looks more like a bank vault door.

Or… a laboratory for detaining high-risk entities?

From the rust, it looks like it has been abandoned for a long time.

However, as he was observing, as if in response to some mysterious force, an even more bizarre scene unfolded.

“You have touched the extraordinary and gained enlightenment.”

Ji Xun looked at the line that suddenly appeared, almost thinking his eyes were playing tricks on him.

He blinked and it was still there.

Then he looked at the bed and saw another line of text.

[Fallen Witch]

Detailed explanation: A first-level B-grade calamity; a spiritual contaminant, a distorted witch who manipulates desires, adept at mental attacks, feeds on human essence and soul to survive; if you cannot kill it, perhaps a pleasant encounter at the end of your life is also a good choice;


It really wasn’t a person!

Seeing this, Ji Xun narrowed his eyes slightly.

Although he didn’t know what this “enlightenment” was, he suddenly seemed to understand.

Since the current situation cannot be understood using normal thinking, then let’s try a different approach.

Many unusual situations seem to point in another direction.

At this moment, a bizarre thought popped into his mind: “For example… did I travel back in time?”

All the signs indicate that this is probably not the original world.

After a moment of shock, Ji Xun did not show much surprise on his face, instead, a thoughtful expression emerged in his eyes, repeatedly pondering whether this assumption was logical.


With the assumption of time travel, everything that was previously inexplicable suddenly became clear.

This explains why he ended up here, and why there is such a strange corpse in the bed.

Oh right.

Not a corpse!

What is this “B-grade,” “calamity,” “spiritual contaminant”?

Probably a monster?

Or a humanoid creature from another world?

Ji Xun re-evaluated everything with a different perspective.

He didn’t know what the mysterious force had enlightened him about, but it was clear that things were becoming increasingly strange.

He looked at the description of the corpse that would absorb human souls, and knew that it obviously wasn’t a good choice to stay with it right now.

Better to leave first.

Glancing at the clothes scattered under the bed, Ji Xun stood up to put them on and open the door to go out and look for other clues.

However, as soon as he got up, a sense of weakness suddenly hit him. His legs suddenly went weak and he fell heavily on the woman’s body next to him.


Heaving up and down, the touch was soft.

Ji Xun struggled to get up in that delicate touch, his eyes twitching, finally understanding why he had travelled back in time.

And with that, he actually saw his own body data.
