Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In fact, all of them could already faintly guess who would pick the card representing the source of all evil. This was because the production team had already manipulated the game from the very beginning.
However, they could not stop themselves from feeling nervous in case they had picked that card.
After a short while, each of the participants had already drawn their own card.
&x201C;You can remove your blindfolds now.&x201D;
As everyone had already expected, the card representing the source of all evil really fell into Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hands.
On the other hand, the person who had drawn the god of luck card was none other than Ling Fei.
Did the production team really need to be this obvious?
Jin Mingchen could not take it any longer and he exploded immediately. &x201C;Aren&x2019;t you treating Sister Yuning too unfairly? How can you bring yourself to do this? Don&x2019;t you have a conscience?&x201D;
At this time the production team looked at Jin Mingchen with a cold expression on their faces as they replied, &x201C;Have we ever looked like good people to you? Now you will finally understand how amazing the balding producers are!&x201D;
&x201C;How could you say for sure that we are bullying her?&x201D; one of the production crew asked Jin Mingchen immediately.
&x201C;The card says &x2018;source of all evil&x2019;! One look at it and you already know that it is not anything good! This is too much!&x201D;
&x201C;That is not the main point now. Now that we have already determined the two team leaders for the opposing teams, it is time for the remaining eight of you to select which teams you want to be on,&x201D; the production crew quickly reminded them. &x201C;If you choose the source of all evils, you will be on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s team and if you choose the god of luck, you will be on Ling Fei&x2019;s team. Of course, each of you is given a ticket to change teams, should you decide that you want to switch teams halfway through the journey. You may choose the team you want to be in now. I am warning you that the circumstances after entering the island are not a joke. You should take everything into consideration before deciding on your team. Do not choose a team just because you want to do the righteous thing.&x201D;
Ling Fei took this opportunity to look at Jiang Yuning with a confident smile on her face before she said, &x201C;Yuning, don&x2019;t be angry. We can switch if you want to.&x201D;
&x201C;Thank you, but it&x2019;s okay. I want to see how evil the source of all evil really is.&x201D; Jiang Yuning declined immediately, with a smile on her face.
&x201C;I already have four years of experience participating on variety shows. I can definitely handle the situation better than you can, so you really do not need to force yourself.&x201D;
&x201C;That will not be necessary. I will just go along with the arrangements made by the production team.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning gave the other party another awkward but polite smile.
Ling Fei did not push any further when she saw that Jiang Yuning was not interested to accept her favor. However, the smugness in Ling Fei&x2019;s eyes and tone made everyone around her feel uncomfortable.
As the both of them were in the midst of their conversation, the other eight participants had already chosen their teams.
Xu Beishen and Tong Tong chose to stick with Jiang Yuning because of the friendship that they had developed during their journey in the desert. They did not care about the card that Jiang Yuning had chosen.
Jin Mingchen chose to be on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s team because he wanted justice. He could not stand the production team manipulating everything just so that they could suppress Jiang Yuning. Therefore, he decided that he wanted to be on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s team. On the other hand, the remaining five participants chose to be on Ling Fei&x2019;s team.
The current composition of the teams was four against six members.
&x201C;Okay, now that each of you have already made your decision, you can now hand in your cell phones to the production crew before you collect your battle gear and backpack. At the same time, I want to remind you that you are on a deserted island and the clues that you obtain will inevitably cause conflict between the two teams. The production team will only consider the people who make it out the iron gate in the end to be the victors. Do you understand?&x201D;
&x201C;We will gather in front of the iron gate at eight o&x2019;clock. You have twenty-four hours to complete your mission. I wish all of you the best of luck. Finally, as a parting gift, I will give all of you a final hint.&x201D;
&x201C;Do not get too happy after conquering a mountain, because it might turn out to be empty happiness; do not be too arrogant after attaining success, because there might be another mountain waiting for you.&x201D; 1
Everyone was puzzled and confused after listening to the hint.
&x201C;What the hell does that mean?&x201D;
At this time, Xu Beishen leaned against Xu Beishen&x2019;s arms before she whispered, &x201C;Do you have any clue or inspiration?&x201D;
&x201C;I have my own speculation but I need to verify it. Also, do you know what the source of all evil is?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Xu Beishen as both of them went to collect their supplies.
&x201C;That&x2026;to be honest, I have no clue at all.&x201D;
&x201C;The source of all evil is quoted in the Bible. There is an allusion behind its original intended meaning,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied briefly.
Xu Beishen could only smile because she knew that Jiang Yuning had already done all she could.
The production team had an evil smile on their faces as they watched the participants preparing to enter the island.
They could not help but wonder which one of the participants would be the first to scream or surrender.
The real twist and surprise would only come later.
After both teams were done getting ready, the production team opened up the iron gate and sent both of the teams through the iron gate before they locked it up.
The good show was about to start.
&x201C;Yuning, why don&x2019;t you bring your team over there while I lead my team in the opposite direction?&x201D; Ling Fei asked Jiang Yuning as soon as they entered the island. &x201C;If we run into any clues later, we can reduce the chances of both of our teams having any conflicts or disagreements.&x201D;
&x201C;Mingchen, are you sure that you don&x2019;t want to come over to this group? It looks like you are going to have a tough time over there,&x201D; Brother Zhuang could not help but ask Jin Mingchen before they went on their separate ways. This was because Jiang Yuning&x2019;s group consisted of two women and also Tong Tong who was weak physically.
&x201C;I&x2026;I want to follow Sister Yuning.&x201D; After that, Jin Mingchen quickly ran after Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Let&x2019;s go now.&x201D; Jiang Yuning did not want to waste any time arguing with people who did not matter and so, she headed straight in the opposite direction.
In the beginning, the path was still clearly visible. However, after walking a short distance, there was tall grass all around them.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, the grass in this area is so tall and the moonlight here is so faint. We can barely see anything,&x201D; Jin Mingchen started complaining.
They continued walking forward and at this time, Jiang Yuning was following right behind them as she rummaged through her backpack to look for a flashlight.
As soon as she turned on the flashlight, she could hear Jin Mingchen screaming for his life.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, there is something over here. What on earth is that?&x201D;
Four of them were extremely nervous and at this time, Jiang Yuning quickly pointed her flashlight in the direction that Jin Mingchen was pointing at. They were all horrified when they saw a strange and ugly monster lying down and eating something off the ground. There was a strong bloody smell lingering in the air.
No one knew what happened or whether it was because the flashlight was directed at it, the monster suddenly stood up and started chasing after them.
&x201C;Ah! Ah! Ah!&x201D;
&x201C;Monster! There&x2019;s a monster.&x201D;
&x201C;Retreat! Retreat!&x201D; Jiang Yuning yelled as she pushed them towards the right. &x201C;Head towards the building on your right!&x201D;
The four of them quickly started running to the building on their right. At this time, Jiang Yuning was right at the back and in a state of panic, the monster managed to grab her arm.
After the four of them entered the building, Tong Tong closed the door immediately. After making sure that the monster did not make its way into the building after them, the four of them collapsed on the ground immediately.
&x201C;Oh my god! What kind of monster is that? That really scared me to death! Sobs. Sobs.&x201D; Jin Mingchen was so frightened that he started blabbering in shock.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, are you hurt?&x201D; Tong Tong asked as he crouched in front of Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning shook her head immediately. However, she quickly opened the pocket on the right side of her battle gear because she could hear a mild beeping sound coming from inside the pocket.
&x201C;What is this?&x201D;
&x201C;I think&x2026;I have just been attacked by the monster and the device is beeping to remind me that I have already lost two percent of blood! Hurry! Check if you guys have the same device on you,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly asked her three companions.
The three of them quickly looked into the pocket on the left arm of their battle gear and at this time, they realized that each of them had the same device on them.
This should be the legendary blood meter!
&x201C;If this is how it is, then I am absolutely certain that the monsters out there are not real.&x201D;
How did the production team manage to find monsters that&x2019;s looked like zombies with a crocodile head? That was utterly disgusting! The production team really outdid themselves this time.
