There were a lot of statues in Yangfan City. Especially at crossroads, stone sculptures of the vulture-head desert god could be seen everywhere.
So after walking for about 200 meters away, Fang Linyan saw a stone sculpture of the desert god, but it seemed to have fallen into disrepair for a long time. Its facial features were indistinct, and there was no mark of the white candle being lit in front of it. It had been worshipped for a long time, and it did not emit red light on Fang Linyan’s retinas.
Fang Linyan sighed regretfully, then he continued to search for the other stone sculptures. After running for about 400 meters, he saw a faint red light flashing at the intersection ahead. He rushed over to take a look and suddenly realized that it was another desert god statue. This statue was emitting a thin red mist from it.
As he was about to put his palm down, his palm stopped in time before touching the surface of the statue. He looked down and noticed that there were only a few white candles burned in front of the god desert statue. Obviously, there were not many people worshipping it.
Thinking of this, he slowly retracted his palm. He thought in his mind,
“Could it be… like this? It doesn’t matter. I still have an hour anyway. I can still look for a while.”
10 minutes later, Fang Linyan stopped in front of another desert god statue. At this moment, 9 candles were lit in front of it. A dozen people were kneeling and praying in front of it. The red light of the statue was obviously much richer. The red mist emitted from it even reached half a meter above his head.
“Sure enough, the red light on this statue should represent the power of wish. The more people worship it, the stronger the power of wish is obtained… Although there is no clear description in the prompt, judging from the statue without red light is disqualified, the richer the red light, the better it is. Even if I misjudge, I only waste a bit of time. I still have more time.”
After making the following judgments, Fang Linyan’s eyes suddenly lost focus. If one looks closely at his eyes at this time, he would have an illusion as if a large number of data streams were flowing in his eyes. After just a few seconds, he immediately recovered from this calculation state,
“I see, the most optimal choice should be there… the central square!”
In just 15 minutes, Fang Linyan came to the central square again.
This was the place where he met Goat for the first time. It was also a temporary safe area for people who did not form a team. It was also a very popular place in Yangfan City, which was the core area of the business district.
There were many sculptures here. The most striking ones were the tall statues with black metallic luster spread around the 4 corners of the square. Below the statues, there were steel plates introducing the history of the characters. They were the core members of the Iron Fist Brotherhood. Fang Linyan’s goal was these statues. They were located in the core are of the business district, and they were built by the rulers to worship here every year. They must have collected a lot of wish power.
When Fang Linyan came to the periphery of the central square, he saw the red light on the statues rising to the sky from a distance. They were still gathering 10 meters above his head, then he knew he came to the right place.
But at this moment, he suddenly heard a loud explosion from the center of the central square, then black smoke rose from the west side of the square.
At this time, Fang Linyan was still about 60 meters away from the central square. He instinctively speeded up his pace and wanted to rush over to take a look, but after only a few steps, he stopped, turned into an alley and leaned against the wall.
Immediately afterward, after seeing no one was noticing him, Fang Linyan cast [Drone]!
In the noisy environment after the explosion at this time, [Drone]’s flying sound was almost completely concealed. Its small size and camouflage feature made it difficult to be spotted if people didn’t deliberately look at the sky.
Under this situation, Fang Linyan was able to observe all the movement in the square. He immediately discovered that the violent explosion was actually made by a man in black. It was Fang Linyan’s acquaintance, Givens, whom he met at the shooting range!
At that time, he thought Fang Linyan had potential, so he specially recruited him. But then Fang Linyan met Goat and joined another temporary team, he almost forgot.
At this time, Givens was laughing wildly,
“Hahahaha, Gai Qiushan, I know you are insatiable, but this time I planted a full 30 kilograms of explosives. You are dead for sure this time!”
Hearing the name Gai Qiushan, Fang Linyan’s heart suddenly moved. He immediately became more focused.
Seeing that the smoke after the explosion gradually dissipated, even revealing the big rocky pit below, Fang Linyan gave birth to a strange and inexplicable feeling… This Gai Qiushan, who had all the power and authority in this world and was escorted by the powerhouse Evil Zen, just died like this?
However, Givens did not notice that in the bushes behind him, a black, thin, and short man had quietly appeared!
The man’s appearance was very ordinary. His entire body was wrapped in a gray-yellow windbreaker as if he was recovering from a serious illness. He held 2 daggers in his hands, 1 long and 1 short. The surface of one dagger was dull and lackluster, and the shape of the other dagger was like the teeth of a beast; there was a layer of fiery red lava smeared on it. It looked extraordinary at a glance.
The black and thin man leaned down and came to the back of Givens easily. His movements were very unique just like cheetahs and cats on the hunt. He didn’t make any sound at all. More importantly, the movement speed was not slow at all.
Then, he made a move suddenly; it was as fast as lightning!
The first move was the ruthless heart stabbing!
The second move was cutting his throat resolutely!
The third move was piercing into his ribs and stirred viciously before pulling fiercely.
Givens didn’t react at all; he just collapsed to the ground and entered a dying state!!
He struggled hard on the ground, turned sideways for after about 10 seconds, turned his head, looked at the thin black man and gasped in disbelief,
“No… impossible! Gai Qiushan, I saw you fall into my trap with my own eyes!”
Gai Qiushan raised his left hand expressionlessly, where there was a ring shining with a strange light,
“It’s just a ring of illusion.”
Givens was shocked,
“You… have you completed the… main mission?”
Gai Qiushan snorted indifferently, then he blew a whistle.
Soon, a man with gold-framed glasses and a pair of white gloves walked over from the side. His eyes looking at Givens were a little strange; it was madness mixed with joy.
Gai Qiushan said concisely,
“Doctor, cripple him, but don’t let him die.”
Having said that, he paused and said,
“Givens, if you tell me everything I want, I’ll let you die.”
The bloody scenes that happened next made Fang Linyan utterly shocked!
Doctor seemed to be psychopathic in reality, and he had a very powerful surgical ability. Gai Qiushan also provided him with the treatment drugs used inside the Iron Fist Brotherhood. In this case, Givens was dismembered alive for 10 minutes before being killed. His screams were stern like they came from hell. The bloody and brutality of the scene was indescribable.
In the face of such torture, Givens could only beg for a quick death. He told everything while vomiting blood, asking Gai Qiushan to keep his promise and kill him.
However, after Gai Qiushan pulled off the dog tag on Givens’ neck, he turned away indifferently, leaving the psychopathic Doctor to continue torturing him. What this Doctor did next was not treating Givens as a human; even Doctor didn’t treat himself as a human…
When Givens died, he was no longer like a person but more like a rabbit that had just been skinned!
This scene had an unprecedented impact on Fang Linyan.
He had never thought of something worse than death in this world! He never thought that a person could be so cold and perverted!!
In fact, he couldn’t take it halfway through and wanted to cut off [Drone]’s signal directly, but in the end, he gritted his teeth and forced himself to finish watching.
Because Fang Linyan wanted to keep this scene in his mind more deeply, telling himself not to be fooled by the hypocritical appearance in this adventure world. There were huge benefits here, but the risks were also huge. This place seemed to be heaven, but it was actually hell! Even more, he had to be prepared to face evils like Gai Qiushan and Doctor who could eat people without spitting out bones at any time. Givens would be a good example!
After seeing Givens died in relief, Fang Linyan cut off [Drone]’s signal directly, stumbled a few steps and vomited violently. His tears and nasal mucus were filled with vomiting. Then, he covered his face and sat down weakly against the wall.
Vomiting was a protective vent, and tears and nasal mucus were also a fierce vent!
Fang Linyan, who closed his eyes, tried his best to calm his breathing while filtering out everything in his mind as much as possible, keeping it blank.
If it was hard to keep it blank, then he would think about delicious food or sexy female body, trying to concentrate on the details of these beautiful things. Such as the maroon red pork skin of the roasted pig hand, the stripes of black stockings on the stunning snow-white long legs………
This was the method in the army training manual that he had read. It could quickly rebuild one’s mind when encountering major changes and stimuli, because if one couldn’t keep calm to participate in the battle, then he would likely be dead!
TL: Can he still go and touch the statue now?
