Chapter 73: Picture with the Foreign Characters
When Gu Jun woke up from his illusions, he realized that the patients in the other room had already been cleared away, but Captain Wang Ke and the rest were standing next to him, studying him.

His hands gripped his heads as he was suddenly pulled into the illusion. First, there was a death-like silence. Then, his lips uttered intermittent incoherent words, and that lasted for about ten seconds…
