Delicious Wind Goose didn’t have any fear when he saw the hanging frames with weird chuckles.
While walking slowly, he explained at the same time,
“I watched your live broadcast last night.
“I noticed that some of you also want to go to the fourth level nightmare. But why can’t you make it? The reason is simple. While you are moving forward, you will not know where to go when you are halfway down the path. The sledgehammer who appeared suddenly caught up with you like a teleport.
“There seems to be only one way, which is to enter Elle’s dungeon. Don’t you think so?”
Delicious Wind Goose said and walked to the opened window.
He took the letter outside the window.
But he didn’t read it right away, nor looked back.
Instead, he closed the window immediately and put the lock up carefully.
As he turned his head, the lightning fell at the same time.
The hanging picture frames had also become corpses hanging from the beams!
But Delicious Wind Goose did not look up.
He did not look out the window, nor did he look at the corpse. Instead, just holding the letter and remaining on the spot, he said in a low volume, “I watched all the third level nightmare videos, and now I fully understand the mechanism of this level.
“This level has a timer mechanism.
“Brother Sledgehammer is relatively slow. He is not a ghost, and he can’t go through walls.
“From the time the wind blows and opens the window, Brother Sledgehammer will appear behind you in forty-three seconds. I watched all the videos three times with a stopwatch in my hand. So I won’t be mistaken even for a second.
“At this time, there is a small chance that you will be able to run through as long as you continue to run at full speed. But this will worsen the injury. You will enter the next floor at minimal health because the corridor on this floor has been lengthened. Forty-three seconds are not enough for you to reach the next level. That’s how you died.”
“Child God was hammered to death by the window because he read the letter on the spot. Worse still, he kept turning back and forth, which wasted too much time.”
As soon as Delicious Wind Goose finished his sentence, his shadow elongated.
So Delicious Wind Goose stopped hesitating, jumped forward, and started jogging.
Brother Sledgehammer was behind Delicious Wind Goose and smashed the window with a hammer.
But since Delicious Wind Goose jumped forward, this hammer could not directly crush his head.
With the wall as obstacles, Brother Sledgehammer couldn’t catch up with Delicious Wind Goose like he was indoors.
Brother Sledgehammer could only be silent, hammering the glass and the wall to pieces. But, he struggled to turn over and jump indoors.
Seeing this, Annan had already understood Brother Sledgehammer’s train of thoughts.
Since Brother Sledgehammer would always spawn behind him, Delicious Wind Goose targeted a place where “there was light behind him” and “the opponent could attack him even across obstacles” while he stuck close to the wall.
In this way, Brother Sledgehammer would get stuck outside the house.
Delicious Wind Goose, relying on the abrupt light of the lightning outside the house, dodged away when the hammer fell. Some players did escape the first hammer strike. But their bodies were injured, and they couldn’t run fast enough. Brother Sledgehammer could easily catch up and deliver another hammer strike.
But “Brother Sledgehammer” couldn’t go through walls.
He was just an ordinary Edict Wizard without the ability to strengthen physical fitness. He only had a mighty curse vessel sledgehammer.
This meant that it was difficult for him to get in from the window.
Whether he walked around from the front door or parkoured in through the window, it would give Delicious Wind Goose time.
With that, Delicious Wind Goose didn’t have to bear the pain and run wildly.
Using the time that Brother Sledgehammer was delayed, he could instead jog forward at a slower speed with a smaller price to pay. At the end, when Delicious Wind Goose entered the next level, his health would inevitably be higher compared to other dungeon challengers running at full speed.
“This middle-aged player may be a genius.”
Annan’s eyes lit up a little, and he murmured.
It had almost been a week since the closed beta started.
The players had not yet embarked on the Transcended path.
However, several of the forty players Annan initially selected had already begun to show their prominence.
Everything went according to Delicious Wind Goose’s plan.
He ran to the corner smoothly. Brother Sledgehammer was still some distance away from him.
Just in case, he didn’t investigate anything. Instead, he just jogged forward. After all, he could investigate when he watched his video recording later.
The players and Annan, who were watching the live broadcast, saw what was there.
There was another diary on the display cabinet where the tomato was placed.
Annan could tell at a glance that it was Elle’s diary in the nightmare!
So, that’s the case. Annan suddenly realized.
If Delicious Wind Goose was greedy, he could grab the diary and run.
In this case, even if he didn’t enter the third-floor nightmare, he could still learn the most critical information from the diary.
But Delicious Wind Goose still played safe.
In other words, he subconsciously chose a more cautious and safe approach to tackle the nightmare.
This was different from the other three front-line players who pioneer their path in the nightmare.
As Delicious Wind Goose opened the door and rushed over, he entered the fourth nightmare.
He was the first to successfully entered the fourth level of the nightmare, even after considering Annan.
At this place, there was a sudden change.
“—Wait? Isn’t this place?”
“—Wait, Uncle Goose, don’t go forward in a hurry!”
“—Fuck, is this dual-slot mode ?!”
“—Dual-slot mode. Such fatality.”
The bullet text had such a big reaction because many of them had watched Jiu Er’s live broadcast.
After Delicious Wind Goose pushed open the door on the third floor, it was no longer the previous hall that appeared in front of him.
It was a deep passage.
—It was the T-shaped passage that Jiu Er just smashed!
Both sides of the passage were dark red, and the ceiling and floor were light browns. But there was still a heavy red carpet on the ground. This place seemed to have only read at first glance.
Two lights next to Delicious Wind Goose went lit, illuminating the small area around him.
Other than that, there was nothing else…or rather, nothing could be seen.
Delicious Wind Goose also realized that something was wrong, “Why did you all overreact?”
“—Fermented Rice Ball also entered this map in the nightmare on the second floor!”
“—This is all fake, an illusion! Mutter ‘this is fake’ in your heart, and try to see if you can push the wall away?”
“—No! The illusion should be the second level that happened in history. This is a nightmare. Maybe it’s real…”
“—Old Goose, you are in a T-shaped corridor. When you get to the innermost side, there are two forks on the road. Once you reach an end, there may be dangers once you turn around. Blood will rush out through the door’s cracks.”
The bullet text frantically advised Delicious Wind Goose.
The strategies flooded Delicious Wind Goose.
Annan also sent a bullet text over and maneuvered Goose as if he was the controller for the Goose Claw Machine:
“Old Goose, take a look at the content of the letter. Is there any difference from what Child God saw?”
