Chapter 584 – Wait there for me
Someone is destroying Mount Supreme’s seals.
This piece of news was like a bomb for everyone. However, plenty of people were actually excited about it.
Including… Qiu Yuan.
He was forcefully brought over by Ma Teng. All he wanted was…
To not be forced to cultivate!
There was also Mu Chengtian…
He didn’t even know how he managed to get out of the Hell Trials. He was sick of the rules of the game. He didn’t want to stay in a place where people were just going to die randomly.
He was the junior family head of a top family of the area outside of the Immortal Region, it was much better for him to just go back to inherit the family head position, then go out and play with girls.
However, they were not the only ones. Ye Zichen’s entire gang seemed to want to leave as well. Of course, there were people who didn’t. These people still wanted to risk it and see if they could manage to get a divine artifact, since if they did manage it, then their time will finally have come.
“I don’t care what you all think, but the game must continue!” Duan Hai said firmly, and looked towards Ye Zichen meaningfully. “Of course, if anyone is dissatisfied with me, then you can fight me here and now.”
Everyone else looked towards Ye Zichen’s group. They knew that the gang had some kind of conflict with Duan Hai.
Even the new black-robed people looked over, and one of them had even fixed his gaze on Ye Zichen for quite a while.
“We don’t have any issues with you. Let’s begin!” Ye Zichen smiled.
Ruan Qingtian and Bai Hai had suggested that Duan Hai might be limited by the gaming rules.
Since that’s the case, I have no need to clash with him. All I have to do was wait for my chance.
“Ha, since that’s the case, then before the game starts, let’s form the teams once more!”
With that, a table with a box on top of it appeared in front of everyone.
“There are twenty-six balls inside. The ones who gets 1 to 3 will form a team, 4 to 6 will form another, and so on. As for the people who received 25 and 26. Sorry, but you were unlucky, so you’ll be eliminated. Now… Let’s begin!”
Everyone immediately went up to the table one by one. However, they what they cared about when they picked up the balls were not who they were teamed up with. Rather, it was whether they would be able to form a team in the first place.
“6!” Ye Zichen raised his eyebrows when he got his. He had thought that Duan Hai would give him a 25 or 26.
“Impossible, I can’t possibly be 25…” Suddenly, a person shouted maniacally. Then, after him, another person also revealed a dead expression, and the number on the ball in his hand was… 26!
“Mhmm, sorry. You’ve been eliminated!” Duan Hai, who sat on the throne, smiled. The two people who got the balls of death immediately ran towards the exit of the hall as fast as they could.
The two players fell limply onto the floor.
Everyone else in the room revealed looks of shock.
Although elimination meant death, it was the first time it had actually happened in front of them.
“The way this game works is simple. I’ll send you all to a secret location later. There are treasures, opportunities and danger everywhere in the secret location. If more than one of you want to get a treasure, then it is very simple, grab their jade pendant and crush it. That’s will be the end of his journey. However, if you find grabbing the jade pendant too troublesome, and just want to kill the other person, then I’m sorry. You will die after you killed him as well! Alright, I’ll give you half an hour to find your teammates. Let’s begin!”
With that, Duan Hai disappeared once again, while the people in the hall begun to shout…
“I’m Number 17!”
“I’m Number 21!”
“I’m Number 14!”
Ye Zichen’s group also got together and looked at each other’s numbers.
“It seems like I’m going to have to team up with outsiders,” Ye Zichen scratched his head with a wry smile. None of the group had a number that grouped up with his.
Approximately several minutes later, everyone in the hall stood together in threes. Only Ye Zichen and two people in long black robes didn’t.
“You guys are in the group for 4 to 6, right? I’m Number 6!” Ye Zichen walked in front one of them.
That person nodded, then showed Ye Zichen his ball.
The remaining person also walked over and held up the Number 4 ball.
“Then please take care of me during the mission,” Ye Zichen smiled.
The two people nodded, but neither of them spoke.
Two strange people.
And they don’t seem like they know each other.
As time ticked away, all of the other groups were in intense discussion as they got to know each other better. Yet, Ye Zichen’s team was...
“Times up! Mission start!” Duan Hai suddenly appeared in the room, and clapped lightly. Everyone in the room disappeared in their groups.
When all of the players left, he squinted his eyes and snorted, “You want to ruin my plans? You’re just seeking death!”
“Uhm… What should I call the two of you?” After teleporting to the secret location, Ye Zichen scratched his head, and glanced at the two black robed people beside him.
“One!” The slightly smaller person replied.
“Then call me Two,” said the other one.
These two are so weird.
Ye Zichen couldn’t help but retort silently. But who cares about their real names. At least it is easier to have a conversation now that we have a way of addressing each other.
“One, Two, where should we go?”
This time, the two black-robed people spoke up together.
Ye Zichen rubbed his forehead…
It really is tiring to team up with people like this.
Since it was a secret location, it was not marked on the map, so Ye Zichen could only let out a soft sigh, then signal the two to wait a moment before walking over to the side to take out his phone and call the system.
“Hey, I’m at the third stage now. Where should I go?”
Meanwhile, outside Mount Supreme.
The man who had appeared to break the formation stood outside the mountain with a solemn frown. As expected of something left behind by a Sky Sovereign, it really is hard to break through it using only the formation skills of these realms.
At that moment, he paused for a moment, then walked to the side with a shake of his head, and took out his phone to type out a reply.
“Wait at the teleportation point.”
System Notification: Wait at the teleportation point.
What does the system want? Does he want me to give up on the treasure hunt? I don’t really care, since I’ve gotten enough from this place, but my teammates might not agree.
“I’m in a team!” Ye Zichen frowned.
Not long later…
System Notification: There are no treasures in the secret location. On the other hand, it’s actually filled with traps. Your luck isn’t that great, so you’ll end up triggering a lot of traps if you move around. The location of the teleportation point is a safe zone. Staying in the room is your best choice.
System Notification: As for the teammates you’ve mentioned, they won’t refuse.
Ye Zichen raised his eyebrows. The system sounds so sure. I don’t know these two people, why would they listen to me?
However, before he could retort, the system sent another message.
System Notification: Wait there for me!
