"The chapter of Geek"

Congratulations, you have been chosen

as Twinko...

Do you think I believe this is real?

Who's that?


I still have hope.

Luckily, it's just a dream.

I'm so hungry, what is the time now?

If you wake up and

found a dead body beside you,

what will you do?

This is the end of my boring life

and the begin of my battle!

Who am I?

I am Zhang Jian He, a comic artist.

I started to draw comic after my high school,

and I like to be alone

And I'm a geek.

I love to draw comic.

I rented an unit at industry area

Because it's cheap, spacious, away from city,

and enable me to get more inspiration.

I hope to become

a successful comic artist one day,

publishing my own comic.

Your comics look as bad as this.

You think everyone is Eric Cheng?

You are Zhang Jian He

You have the same given name,

but you're not him.

Take these back, don't waste my time!

Leave now!

Everyday, I'll chat with someone online

After chatting, I will use the

delete function to remove the messages.

You haven't sleep yet?

I usually sleep after dawn

when I have completed my job!

What is your job?

I'm a comic artist! You?

Seeking for job...

I use my savings

to buy my favourite Twinko's collectible

And looking at them daily.

This is how my life was supposed to be.

I'm just

an ordinary person.

But now...

Firstly, I need to calm down

I need to recall what had happened.

I remembered already

He is Cheng Jun!

- Bro

- Huh?

Could you lend me some money?

I don't have any money to borrow you.

Please, just once more!

Please, just once more!

Please, this will be the last!

I really don't have any money to borrow you.

- Stop drawing!

- Hey!

Stop drawing anymore!

But you haven't return back my money!

What now?

You think I can't pay you back?

Hey! How dare your threw

my drawing away!

So what?

So what? Are you looking down at me?

You think I can't pay you back?

Are you OK?

- I didn't mean it!

- Go away!

I just want to borrow money from you,

why did you hurt me?

Do you know what is brotherhood?

Why is it so complicated for you?

Let me go!

I remembered how it happened.

He felt down and land onto my drawing board

And my sharp drawing pen

Stabbed through his neck.

That was the truth, I'm not lying.

Life is just that dramatic.

Anyway, that's how it happened.

Are you OK?



I help you to call an ambulance.

Darn you!

That's how I killed him.

What should I do?

Should I surrender myself?

If I am lucky, I would be charged

as involuntary manslaughter.

Even if I behave well,

I will still be imprisonment for 8 to 10 years.

I will lost my greatest years of youth.

And the worst is...

Hey bro!


Let me get out of here!

They will hurt me badly.

My gerbera "daisy"

will turn into a "sunflower".

No! I don't want to become a prisoner!

I have to find a solution,

it's not even my fault.

This is an industrial area with full

of offices.

No one...

will notice Cheng Jun.

Hey bro!

I knew you will be at home anytime I come.

Further, no one knows he came

and look for me.

So, no one will know he died here.

All I need is to make his dead body disappear

Then, I will be free from this case.

How to manage a dead body? Enter.

Dismember, bloodletting or eat the dead body?

That's impossible, I can't do that.

Zhang Jian He, if you are so scared of blood

How can you become a doctor?

You should give up


Hey! Zhang Jian He!

That's the reason why I choose

to become a comic artist.

Asking me to bloodletting and dismember

I can't!

Who can help me?

I have killed someone, what should I do?

Haha really?

Me too!

I'm not kidding!

I'm going offline'

need to finish my work!

Looks like I have to find my own solution.

It's been more than 7 hours

since Cheng Jun came this morning

I have to get rid of it before it smells.

I can't dismember, bloodletting

or eat it.

How can I dispose it? It is so heavy.

According to netizen,

human body is mostly made up of water.

Once the moisture has gone,

it will be easier to handle.

How can I remove the moisture

within a short period?

Human will be dehydrated

after excessive exercise.

Yes! Excessive exercise! Dehydration!

I just have to make him dehydrated.

It's better to clean up the place first.

From now, I have to fight for my life!

Let's clean up the evidence now!

I can't burn it, but I can dry it up.

Based on Cheng Jun's height and weight

with the current heat level

Probably 4 to 5 days can be done.

Fortunately, my house has high ceiling

and it won't trigger the fire alarm.

Further, there are exhaust fans here.

Looks like the luck is still on my side.

Ya Shi?

Hello, Ya Shi.

Sorry, I'm not free this week,

I have work to do at home.

I'm really not free, I have to finish my work.

I'm sorry, Ya Shi.

Ya Shi, I miss you so much.

Ya Shi, I'm sorry.

For the sake of you, I must not be charged!

My life battle is starting soon,

and now is the time.

If I were to make a mistake,

I will ruin my life.

I need to be focus!

Now that I found a solution,

I can calm myself down.


Was it true that you have

killed someone?

Of course not!

It was just my comic's conceptual idea.

Will she believe when I reply like this?

If you don't mind,

I can brainstorm the idea with you!

This girl is so adorable!

Sure! I always have sucks idea!
