Chapter 236: Let Him Go Back and Harm Yuning Instead
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
&x201C;Sister Yuning&x2026;I am really sorry,&x201D; Jin Mingchen apologized sincerely to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I promise that I will never abandon you again!&x201D;
&x201C;Only the ghosts would believe your words!&x201D; Xu Beishen snorted immediately. &x201C;Wow&x2026;run, run. The monsters are coming.&x201D;
&x201C;Beishen, don&x2019;t scare him anymore. Some people are just naturally timid and more easily scared compared to others. Mingchen, the monsters are attracted to us and targeting us because of your screams. I am not going to cover your mouth or restrain you after we step out of this building but if you do not take control of your own psychological fears, then we will just keep getting attacked by the monsters. Do you understand?&x201D;
Jin Mingchen nodded his head before he said, &x201C;I will make sure I do not open my mouth even if I am really afraid.&x201D;
&x201C;Do you believe him?&x201D;
&x201C;If we do not give him a chance, he will not learn and he will not grow up. If he does not learn how to overcome his own fears, then who knows if he might suddenly scream at the most critical moment and cause us to lose our chance at victory?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Xu Beishen.
&x201C;Alright then, let&x2019;s just give it a try. We can go over to the next building and start searching there instead.&x201D;
The four of them were more relaxed and relieved after finding out that the monsters would only be activated if they started screaming.
After picking up their backpacks, they started walking towards the next building.
This time, Jin Mingchen was surrounded by the other three members as they walked out of the building. When Jiang Yuning used her flashlight to look around their surroundings, Jin Mingchen saw a monster that was hidden behind the tall grass and making some mechanical noises. However, the monster remained dormant and did not attack them even though they were only a few feet away from the monster.
Although Jin Mingchen was still very scared, he kept pinching his own thigh to remind himself that he should not scream. He did not want to cause Jiang Yuning any more trouble than he already had.
This time, the four of them made it to the next building without encountering any difficulties at all.
Jin Mingchen could finally breathe and relaxed after they were safely inside the building.
&x201C;Are you not scared anymore?&x201D;
Jin Mingchen&x2019;s eyes were teary because he had always been a very timid person.
&x201C;Just think of the monsters as battery-operated machines that are controlled by a remote control. It is the same as the battery-operated toys that you can get from the toy shops. That way, you will not be so scared anymore.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning tried her best to comfort Jin Mingchen and calm him down a little.
&x201C;Wow&x2026;Sister Yuning, if I think of it that way, I really seem to be less fearful of the monsters now.&x201D;
&x201C;Yuning, we have already searched more than half of the buildings on this island. There seems to be no hints at all. The only things that we keep finding are pistols. Do you think it is time for us to change our strategy?&x201D; Xu Beishen asked Jiang Yuning as she sat down on the ground and started eating some of her food supplies.
Jiang Yuning nodded her head as she looked at the pistols in her backpack.
&x201C;I have a very bold idea.&x201D;
&x201C;I have a feeling that the clues or hints that we need are hidden on the monsters. Although we know how to stop the monsters from attacking us, we still have no idea how we can restrain them. I think that the production team must have given us all these pistols for this purpose. Therefore, I am certain that the production team has already hidden the important clues and hints on the monsters.&x201D;
&x201C;So, do you mean to say that we should take the initiative to approach those monsters, then?&x201D; Xu Beishen immediately understood what Jiang Yuning was trying to say. Although Jiang Yuning&x2019;s idea was really very bold, Xu Beishen felt that it might actually work.
&x201C;I would really like to test out my hypothesis but I will need to observe the monsters from a closer range to be able to see if there are any clues hidden on them. Tong Tong, Mingchen, will the both of you be cool with this idea?&x201D;
After explaining herself, Jiang Yuning turned around to look at her two male companions.
Tong Tong did not hesitate and he made an okay gesture at Jiang Yuning.
On the other hand, after a long mental struggle with himself, Jin Mingchen finally nodded his head and said, &x201C;I am just going to go with it!&x201D;
&x201C;So, what should we name ourselves? The Abandoners&x2019; Alliance?&x201D; Tong Tong joked as he laughed out loud.
&x201C;No way! We should be called the Winners&x2019; Union.&x201D; Xu Beishen hit Tong Tong on his head before she continued, &x201C;Besides this child over here, none of us were abandoned&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Yuning, I have a proposal&x2026;&x201D; Tong Tong suddenly spoke up. &x201C;Since we would like to observe the monsters without provoking them or allowing them to attack us, then&x2026;why don&x2019;t we keep up with the other group and follow behind them secretly? What do you think? I would also like to see how lucky the goddess of luck is.&x201D;
&x201C;Tong Tong, you have become naughtier&x2026;but I think that your idea is feasible,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she laughed.
&x201C;Agree!&x201D; Xu Beishen said as she raised her hand.
&x201C;I agree too!&x201D; Jin Mingchen replied as he stood up excitedly.
That group of people did not show him any mercy when they chose to abandon him. Ling Fei had even asked him to surrender and eliminate himself from the game.
Jin Mingchen felt annoyed just thinking about it. He was also very curious to find out if Ling Fei&x2019;s group ran into any other monsters after abandoning him.
&x201C;Alright then, let&x2019;s find a good and high position to set camp. Once we determine their exact location, we can quietly follow behind them&x2026;&x201D;
After abandoning Jin Mingchen, Ling Fei&x2019;s group felt as though they had already gotten rid of their bad luck charm. So far, the monsters had not attacked them yet.
Everyone felt relieved when they thought about it. &x201C;It must be because Jin Mingchen was with Jiang Yuning at the very beginning. That is why he must have been infected by the evil atmosphere and when he switched groups, he brought us bad luck!&x201D;
&x201C;Brother Zhuang, fortunately you gave your ticket, which gives you the right to switch teams, to Mingchen. Let him go back and harm Yuning instead.&x201D;
&x201C;But I have to say that I really admire Yuning. She is still so patient and tolerant, and she even willingly took Mingchen back into her group even though he deserted her group and left with us in front of everyone.&x201D;
&x201C;That is probably because they need more people in their group?&x201D; Ling Fei was very upset when she heard her own team members praising Jiang Yuning.
She was the lucky star. How could these people be so ungrateful and boast about someone else when she was the one who was bringing them all the good luck?
The production team did in fact give a lot of benefits and clues to the person who obtained the god of luck card. So far, they had already collected two maps. Once they collected all six maps, they would be able to determine the exact location of the hidden key. However, they had never once questioned why they were able to proceed with their mission so easily.
Ling Fei was sulking and feeling extremely upset when she suddenly saw something bloody under her feet.
She screamed immediately before she ran over to the group of men following behind her.
&x201C;There are dead people over there&x2026;&x201D;
The few men walked ahead to take a look but they were all speechless as soon as they saw what Ling Fei was referring to. &x201C;It&x2019;s just a dead rat. It is not surprising for us to run into a few dead rats on a deserted island.&x201D;
&x201C;Really?&x201D; Ling Fei pretended to be calm and she only walked ahead of the team again after taking a short moment to regain her composure.
At this time, a swarm of monsters suddenly surrounded them from all directions.
All of them started screaming for their lives and after much difficulty, they finally made it inside the building. At this time, the group was already scattered as they ran for their lives. After entering the building, Qi Mo realized that there should have been six of them, but two of their members were nowhere to be seen.
&x201C;I am going to look for them&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;No, don&x2019;t go!&x201D; Ling Fei quickly stopped Qi Mo. &x201C;We will definitely be attacked by the monsters if we go out now. We should just wait it out here.&x201D;
&x201C;You can just wait here. I will go out and look for them.&x201D; After he was done speaking, Qi Mo pushed Ling Fei&x2019;s hand away and walked out of the building immediately.
At this time, Brother Zhuang and the muscular young boy had already made their way to another building when they were trying to escape the monsters. The blood meters on their arms were already making loud beeping sounds.
Their blood meters were now below thirty percent.
Jiang Yuning and her teammates were hiding behind a pile of rubber and they did not say anything as they watched what was happening to the other group from afar. After watching the entire incident unfold before their eyes, the four of them quietly backed into the building.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, did you find out anything?&x201D;
&x201C;We will now conduct our third analysis for the day.&x201D; Jiang Yuning sat down before she started her conclusion.
