Chapter 235: Almost Annihilated
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
&x201C;Let&x2019;s conduct the second round of our analysis now. Ling Fei&x2019;s group has also been on the island for more than an hour but they have not encountered any of the monsters yet. This is very strange. Let&x2019;s check and see if there are any special devices or anything on us that is attracting the monsters to us.&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning, the three of them started looking for any hidden objects or sensors on their bodies, including their battle gears and also in their backpacks. However, they realized that there was nothing abnormal about it from the surface.
&x201C;We can now be certain that the monsters are not specifically targeted at us. So, we have to continue analyzing to determine what attracts the monsters to us. I was using a flashlight earlier, and so was Ling Fei, but they did not encounter the monsters. So, we can rule out the flashlight as a trigger for the monsters. Now, I can only think of one last possibility.&x201D;
&x201C;What?&x201D; Xu Beishen asked as she stood up. She was excited because she felt as though they were about to solve the mystery.
&x201C;Mingchen&x2019;s screams! We were attacked twice after Mingchen started screaming!&x201D;
Xu Beishen thought for a short while after listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s theory. &x201C;Yes, I believe that your theory might be very possible.&x201D;
&x201C;It is very easy for us to verify if it is true or otherwise. After searching through this building, we can head out of the building and try to stay quiet and not make any noise at all.&x201D;
After watching the analysis done by Jiang Yuning&x2019;s group, the production team started scratching their heads again.
The director and producers would only have a few strands of hair left soon!
Jiang Yuning, do you really want to see us go bald so badly?
On the other hand, Ling Fei&x2019;s team was still looking for clues on the island in a very relaxed and casual manner.
&x201C;Feifei, you are really amazing. This could easily be the easiest issue I have recorded so far!&x201D;
&x201C;You are really the goddess of luck! Where are the monsters that they were just talking about?&x201D;
&x201C;I really sympathize with Yuning&x2019;s group now. There are just two girls and one young child. This time, Yuning is going to fall down the rankings for sure!&x201D;
Ling Fei&x2019;s members continued praising her and putting her on a pedestal.
When Ling Fei thought about how desperate Jiang Yuning&x2019;s group must be feeling at the moment, she could not help but feel even more arrogant and proud of herself. No one could ever be luckier or smarter than her in any variety shows. Twenty-four hours? At this rate, they would not even need twelve hours to complete the mission.
At this time, Jin Mingchen, who was walking right at the back, constantly felt as though there was something behind him. He kept turning back to take a look every now and then.
When a gush of chilly wind suddenly blew passed him, he started screaming before he threw his flashlight away.
The six of them could not help but laughed at him. &x201C;Don&x2019;t worry, we are the lucky team. You will not encounter any monsters when you are with us.&x201D;
&x201C;Look at how scared he is. He must have felt so miserable just now.&x201D;
Just as everyone was making fun of Jin Mingchen, a faint sound was suddenly heard before monsters started coming from all directions to attack the seven of them.
&x201C;Monsters! There are&x2026;monsters here!&x201D;
Jiang Yuning and her companions were standing on top of another building at this time when they suddenly heard the screams coming from a short distance away, accompanied by the lights from the flashlights flashing all over the place.
&x201C;Alas, the thing that triggered the monsters&x2019; attack was really Jin Mingchen&x2019;s scream.&x201D;
&x201C;Good job!&x201D; Xu Beishen said as she showed a thumbs up to Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, you are really awesome!&x201D; Tong Tong said as he laughed.
&x201C;We are almost done packing so we can leave soon. Since there might be a lot of things hidden within the buildings, we should continue searching carefully. Who knows if we might be able to discover some of the hidden clues?&x201D;
It was a pistol earlier, and now they found another pistol. Although she did not know what the production team were trying to imply, Jiang Yuning felt that the production team would definitely be disappointed this time because her marksmanship was actually pretty decent.
&x201C;Alright, let&x2019;s just do as you say.&x201D;
After losing Jin Mingchen to the other team, the three of them had a much easier time. This was because they could officially verify that the root cause of the monster attack was indeed Jin Mingchen&x2019;s screams.
The three of them continued moving forward in a much more relaxed manner as they continued searching one building after another.
At this time, Ling Fei&x2019;s group was in a terrible state. If Ling Fei did not have those men in her group, her blood meter would have been emptied right on the spot.
The blood meters of all seven of them were already damaged to a varying degree, with the person taking the most severe damage recording a blood meter of fifty seven percent remaining.
Although they managed to scamper into a building nearby to hide from the monsters, everyone was in a state of shock right now.
&x201C;It turns out that the monsters really did exist!&x201D;
&x201C;There were so many of them just now. They were just rushing at us.&x201D;
&x201C;But we did not see any monsters when we were on our way earlier. What is going on now?&x201D;
The seven of them gathered together as they discussed the situation and at this time, everyone suddenly turned to look at Jin Mingchen. &x201C;Before you joined our group, we did not encounter any monsters at all. The monsters only started chasing and attacking us after you joined us!&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t be so quick to push the blame to him. Maybe we were just lucky that we did not meet the monsters earlier,&x201D; Ling Fei defended Jin Mingchen immediately. &x201C;We need to stay united at times like this.&x201D;
&x201C;It was really horrifying earlier. Team leader, may I suggest that we leave Jin Mingchen behind? Anyway, he is also scared of everything and will not be of any help to us.&x201D;
&x201C;You guys cannot just leave me behind&x2026;don&x2019;t leave me behind,&x201D; Jin Mingchen started crying as he turned pale.
When Ling Fei saw Jin Mingchen&x2019;s reaction, she quickly said, &x201C;It is too cruel to just leave someone behind like this. Mingchen, maybe you can just give up and eliminate yourself from the game.&x201D;
Jin Mingchen could not believe his own ears. He took a few steps back before he contacted the production team: &x201C;I want to switch back to Sister Yuning&x2019;s group.&x201D;
The production team was in a dilemma at this time. &x201C;Mingchen, do you understand the rules of this game?&x201D;
&x201C;But they want to leave me behind. I do not dare to stay here on my own.&x201D;
&x201C;Team leader, I think it is better for us to bring Mingchen along with us. I will look after him.&x201D; At this time, Brother Zhuang could not help but stand up for the poor child.
&x201C;Alright then&x2026;&x201D; Ling Fei replied as she glanced at Jin Mingchen. She initially thought that stealing one of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s member away from her would be the biggest humiliation for Jiang Yuning.
However, it seemed as though she had only brought disaster upon herself this time.
&x201C;But if this happens one more time, then we will have to consider the situation of the entire team, okay?&x201D;
&x201C;If that is the case, I would like to use this opportunity to request that the production team allow me to let Mingchen use my ticket to switch back to Yuning&x2019;s group. Production team, can we do that?&x201D; Brother Zhuang suddenly spoke up after putting much thoughts into his request. In fact, he was also afraid that his blood meter would be depleted completely if they were attacked once again.
At this time, all of them could only regard Jin Mingchen as the unlucky star.
&x201C;Okay but we have to ask Yuning&x2019;s group for their permission.&x201D; The production team hesitated at first but after thinking about it, they finally agreed to compromise. A short while later, they received a reply from Jiang Yuning&x2019;s group. &x201C;Yuning and her teammates have agreed to take Jin Mingchen back into their group.&x201D;
&x201C;Yay!! Sister Yuning is the best.&x201D; Jin Mingchen immediately regretted his actions of betraying his own teammates earlier. &x201C;All of you are really too heartless!&x201D;
&x201C;Mingchen, now is not the time to cry. Just wait here for a moment. One of the production crew members will come over and bring you to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s group in a short while.&x201D;
Jin Mingchen wiped away his tears as he sat down and waited for the production crew to make the necessary arrangements for him.
The production crew then blindfolded him before they started to guide him towards Jiang Yuning&x2019;s group.
Ling Fei felt extremely relieved after Jin Mingchen&x2019;s departure.
&x201C;It is really fortunate for us that he&x2019;s gone now. We were almost annihilated!&x201D;
However, Ling Fei&x2019;s team had not yet discovered the true reason why the monsters appeared and started attacking them.
This was also the reason why Jiang Yuning&x2019;s team was willing to take Jin Mingchen in.
Because they knew the reason!
No matter what it was, the production team understood Jiang Yuning&x2019;s personality very well. They knew that she would definitely take Jin Mingchen in, unlike the person whom they had invited over from the other variety show!
When Jin Mingchen finally returned to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s side about twenty minutes later, he felt so guilty that he almost knelt down in front of her. &x201C;Sobs. Sobs. Sister Yuning, you are really so good to me. Sorry, I know I was wrong. Please forgive me.&x201D;
&x201C;I will not ask you for anything else, but I really need you to stop screaming. Can you promise me that?&x201D;
&x201C;That other group&x2026;they wanted to abandon me and leave me behind all by myself. They are really too much!&x201D;
&x201C;Is that so? Alright then, we will let them enjoy their punishment for abandoning you!&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she patted Jin Mingchen&x2019;s shoulder to comfort him.
