Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After ensuring that Jiang Yuning was okay, the three of them began to check and ensure that the building was safe before they gathered around and sat down in a circle to sort out their information and plan their strategy.
Jiang Yuning began by opening the backpack that the production crew had prepared in advance for them. After rummaging through the items in the backpack, they realized that there was nothing much in it except for a flashlight, a first aid kit, some canned food, and the smoke alarm.
&x201C;The production team can go to hell! They really scared me to death!&x201D; At this time, Jin Mingchen could no longer contain his anger, and he yelled out loud as he threw his backpack on the ground.
&x201C;Okay, at least we now know that there are monsters waiting for us on this island. What we are not quite sure about is the number of monsters and whether there are any other types of monsters lurking around.&x201D;
&x201C;Since we already know that our blood meter will drop when we get attacked by the monsters, we have to figure out a way to retrain the monsters.&x201D;
&x201C;Time is precious. We should not be hiding here the entire time, so we should start searching the building for anything that might be useful to us now, even if it is just a spatula.&x201D;
&x201C;This time, the production team did not even send any cameraman into the island with us. This shows how many cameras they have already installed on this island. If we include the cost for creating the monsters, the production team really did spend a lot to plan the mission this time,&x201D; Xu Beishen said as she laughed out loud.
&x201C;It is pointless to say anything now. We have to work together to come up with a solution. The three of you can go ahead and search the building for anything that we might be able to use. I will climb up to the top of the building to see which direction we can head to after leaving the building,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly instructed her teammates.
&x201C;Okay.&x201D; Xu Beishen patted Jiang Yuning gently on her shoulder before she said, &x201C;Make sure that you pay attention to your own safety.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning looked at the blood meter on her arm before she nodded her head and went on to climb up to the top of the building. She then used her flashlight to look at the area surrounding the building.
The only way for them to get out of the building and move forward was a small and narrow path at the back of the building.
The path would subsequently directly lead them to another building and at the moment, this was their safest bet.
A short while later, Xu Beishen brought Jin Mingchen and Tong Tong to the top of the building to look for Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;There is nothing that we can use in this building, but I found this.&x201D; Xu Beishen took a gun out from her backpack. &x201C;I don&x2019;t know if this is a real or fake pistol.&x201D;
&x201C;It is fake,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as soon as she looked at the pistol in Xu Beishen&x2019;s hand. Jiang Yuning could tell from a single glance that the weight and composition of this pistol were completely different from a real pistol&x2019;s. &x201C;We should keep it because we might be able to use it later.&x201D;
&x201C;But we do not know how to use it.&x201D;
&x201C;Give it to me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she took the pistol from Xu Beishen and placed it at her waist. &x201C;Can you guys see this little path at the back of this building? This is the only path leading directly to another building. We will use this path to escape from this building and after that, we need to look for a higher location so that we can observe everything that is happening on the island. In a short while, I will cover your backs as we escape but remember that we have to act fast!&x201D;
Although he knew that the monsters were not real, Jin Mingchen still felt very uncomfortable because it was too creepy and intimidating for him.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, I am really very scared&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Mingchen, you have to learn how to overcome your fears. Otherwise, do you really want to admit defeat now? Think about your fans who are cheering and rooting for you right now. Don&x2019;t you want to show your fans how strong and courageous you can be?&x201D;
As soon as Jiang Yuning mentioned his fans, Jin Mingchen was silent for a few seconds before he summoned his courage and said, &x201C;Yes, I can do it for them!&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then, I will open the door then,&x201D; Jiang Yuning walked towards the door and then made an okay gesture at the three of them before she opened the door swiftly. A squeaking sound could be heard as the door opened and when she saw that it was completely silent outside, Jiang Yuning quickly whispered, &x201C;Go now!&x201D;
The four of them escaped quickly, as though they were running for their lives and at this time, Jin Mingchen suddenly screamed again because he saw something moving behind the tall grass&x2026;
Jiang Yuning used her flashlight to look around them and at this time, she saw three of four monsters running towards them. They did not know where these monsters had come from. &x201C;Hurry up! We need to move faster.&x201D;
However, since Tong Tong was more fragile and physically weaker, he fell down after taking a few steps. Jiang Yuning quickly stopped in her tracks to lend Tong Tong a hand and at this time, the monster was already closing in on both of them. At this point, Jiang Yuning had no choice but to fire the pistol at the monster.
In an instant, there was the sound of the monster falling to the ground. Jiang Yuning and Xu Beishen quickly made use of this opportunity to pull Tong Tong up to his feet before the four of them ran towards the next building and sought refuge there.
The four of them continued holding their breath even after entering the building and they only relaxed and let out a huge sigh of relief after they were certain that the monsters had not followed them into the building.
&x201C;Tong Tong, are you okay?&x201D;
&x201C;I am fine.&x201D; Tong Tong shook his head immediately. &x201C;But Sister Yuning, how are we going to move forward? I feel as though we have already encountered so many difficulties and obstacles, but it seems as though there is nothing happening to the other group at all. Do you think it is really because Ling Fei&x2019;s card is the god of luck card?&x201D;
After listening to Tong Tong&x2019;s question, Jin Mingchen immediately remembered that the card that Jiang Yuning drew was the source of all evil.
Could Jiang Yuning really be the reason why they were encountering these monsters?
All these thoughts and speculations started running through their minds.
After resting for about ten minutes, the four of them suddenly heard a faint sound coming their way. The four of them were on alert immediately but the finally calmed down when they saw Brother Zhuang pushing the door open.
&x201C;It is really you guys.&x201D;
A short while later, Ling Fei walked in and shone her flashlight at them. &x201C;We heard some screams and gunshots earlier. Did something happen to you?&x201D;
&x201C;You guys&x2026;have not met with anything unusual yet?&x201D; Jin Mingchen asked as he stared at the other group with doubt in his eyes.
&x201C;What did you guys meet?&x201D; Qi Mo asked as he stared at the four of them curiously. &x201C;You guys look as though you were just running for your lives. What happened?&x201D;
&x201C;Yuning, we found some clues. That is why we decided to come over and take a look.&x201D;
Jin Mingchen spent a little time explaining everything that they had encountered to Ling Fei&x2019;s group but they looked skeptical and suspicious of his story.
&x201C;Is that really possible? We have been very safe and we have not met any monsters at all. Do you think&x2026;that the reason why you saw all those monsters is because Jiang Yuning&x2019;s card is the source of all evil?&x201D; Ling Fei asked, as though she had just discovered something phenomenal. &x201C;Yuning, the production team is really too much. How could they make things so difficult for your group?&x201D;
&x201C;Leader, I think we had better leave now just in case. Otherwise&x2026;&x201D; Ling Fei&x2019;s team member was afraid that some monsters would appear out of nowhere and attack them because they believed Jiang Yuning to be the one attracting these monsters.
&x201C;Yes, let&x2019;s go now. I don&x2019;t want to run into any monsters. I think it is better for us to stay away from Yuning.&x201D;
&x201C;Mingchen, don&x2019;t you have a chance to use your ticket to change groups? Why don&x2019;t you come over to our group now?&x201D; Brother Zhuang asked as he looked at Jin Mingchen.
Jin Mingchen felt very tempted after listening to Brother Zhuang&x2019;s offer but he did not want to betray Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;It&x2019;s okay, you can go,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly said. &x201C;Tong Tong, you can go too.&x201D;
&x201C;I am not switching groups,&x201D; Tong Tong refused immediately.
&x201C;Sister Yuning&x2026;I am really very sorry but I am really too scared right now.&x201D; In the end, Jin Mingchen could not resist temptation and he quickly accepted Brother Zhuang&x2019;s offer because he really did not want to feel so scared anymore.
Jiang Yuning shrugged, signaling that she did not mind at all. After that, the production team made an announcement stating that Jin Mingchen had chosen to switch over to Ling Fei&x2019;s group. The composition of the teams was now seven to three.
&x201C;Yuning, we are sorry but we have to leave now.&x201D;
Ling Fei&x2019;s group then quickly exited the building.
Jiang Yuning remained calm even after Ling Fei&x2019;s group left with Jin Mingchen but at this time, Xu Beishen suddenly cursed out loud. &x201C;Although I know that I should be more understanding since he is still a child, I cannot help feeling so frustrated right now.&x201D;
&x201C;I understand why Jin Mingchen made that choice and I don&x2019;t blame him for it anyway.&x201D; After that, Jiang Yuning looked at Xu Beishen before she asked, &x201C;What about you? Why didn&x2019;t you switch over to Ling Fei&x2019;s group?&x201D;
&x201C;Do I really look like the kind of person who cares about the odds? Whether we are winning or losing, I am following you.&x201D;
&x201C;Me too!&x201D; Tong Tong chimed in immediately.
&x201C;Then&x2026;I will explain the origin of the source of all evil to both of you now. The Bible states that the supreme archangel betrayed God because of his pride and he was eventually driven out of heaven, bringing sin into the world. Therefore, I have a feeling that the source of all evil is pride&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;And no matter what Ling Fei says, we should not believe or be affected by anything she says. Instead, we should just trust ourselves.&x201D;
As soon as the production team heard Jiang Yuning&x2019;s explanation, they were stunned. Would they really be able to stop Jiang Yuning this time?
