&x201C;Well, what do you know!&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she pushed the monsters that had already lost control out of the way as she made her way to her teammates. &x201C;I have been practicing my marksmanship for the last two weeks.&x201D;
&x201C;Did the production team inform you about this matter in advance?&x201D;
&x201C;Do you really think that the production team would be so kind? I learned how to shoot because I need this skill for my upcoming drama. I had never expected my shooting skills to come in handy like this,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she kept her pistol before she walked in front of the red monster.
The director sitting behind the cameras could not help but scratch his head! They tried so hard but it seemed as though they would not be able to stop her after all.
&x201C;Let&x2019;s check and see what&x2019;s so special about this monster.&x201D; Xu Beishen followed behind Jiang Yuning before she snorted. &x201C;Ew! The monster is really ugly and the texture of its skin feels so real. The production team really outdid themselves this time.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning squatted down in front of the red monster and started observing it from every different angle. After that, she opened the monster&x2019;s mouth to look instead and at this time, she saw a small paper bag hidden inside the monster&x2019;s body. Jiang Yuning placed her hand directly into the monster&x2019;s mouth to retrieve the paper bag. After investigating further, they discovered a small map of one portion of the private island inside the paper bag.
&x201C;Okay! We are going to have to repeat the same steps a few times to obtain the other five maps.&x201D;
&x201C;It&x2019;s almost dawn now. Why don&x2019;t we find a place to set camp and rest for the night? Now that we have already found out how we are able to obtain these maps, we can continue retrieving these maps from the monsters tomorrow. What do you think?&x201D; Xu Beishen suggested.
Unexpectedly, Jiang Yuning shook her head this time. &x201C;We cannot afford to rest right now because none of us can guarantee that the monsters will be in the same form and could still be defeated in the same manner tomorrow. Who knows if the production team still has some other sneaky tricks up their sleeves? We have to continue hunting the monsters tonight so that our effort so far would not be in vain.&x201D;
&x201C;Why don&x2019;t we do this? Beishen and Tong Tong can go and rest and replenish your strength first. Mingchen and I will try a few more times on our own.&x201D;
&x201C;Since we are a team, then let&x2019;s do everything together as a team. Let&x2019;s continue!&x201D;
The four of them continued repeating the same steps a couple more times to lure monsters from all the different directions towards them. At this time, the only sound that could be heard on the island was Jin Mingchen&x2019;s screams that were accompanied by echoes from time to time.
The people on Ling Fei&x2019;s team could hear Jin Mingchen&x2019;s terrifying and heart wrenching screams from time to time and they could only cling onto their coats tightly as they imagined how much Jiang Yuning&x2019;s group must be suffering at this time.
After a long struggle, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s group finally obtained four maps.
At this time, the fiery red sun had already slowly emerged from the sea of clouds.
When they looked at their surroundings&x2026;
At this time, Tong Tong could not help but wonder out loud, &x201C;I can&x2019;t help but feel that these monsters are all the same batch of monsters attacking us over and over again. Otherwise, how much resources and money would the production put into this issue? That would not be realistic. I think that they only switched the green flames out with a red flame every time we kill a red monster.&x201D;
&x201C;We have already hit all the red monsters that we see, but we are still short of two maps,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied after placing the four maps on the ground.
&x201C;Ling Fei has two maps on her hands,&x201D; Jin Mingchen suddenly recalled. &x201C;The production team is really very biased. They gave the god of luck two maps so easily, but we had to obtain these four maps after so much hard work and difficulties.&x201D;
&x201C;Moreover, the production team has already told us that we might clash with the opposing team because of the clues. No matter which group obtains the map in the first place, the victor would still be the people who find the key and unlock and step out of the iron gate,&x201D; Xu Beishen exclaimed as she suddenly recalled what the production crew had mentioned before they entered the island.
&x201C;Then, I guess I should really thank the four of you for trying so hard to obtain those four maps for us.&x201D; At this time, Ling Fei&x2019;s voice suddenly sounded behind them.
Jiang Yuning quickly put her maps away but at this time, Ling Fei and the four other men quickly stepped forward and tried to stop Jiang Yuning.
Ling Fei had four other men on her team and all of them had already replenished their energy after resting for the night, whereas Jiang Yuning and her teammates were all exhausted and completely deprived of their energy after fighting the monsters throughout the night.
It seemed as though Ling Fei intended to snatch their maps.
&x201C;Ling Fei, don&x2019;t you think that it would be very unethical of you to do this? How can you bully us just because you have more people on your team?&x201D;
&x201C;I already mentioned when we stepped into this island that I hope no one will be offended if we have any confrontations because of a conflict of interest. We all need the same maps and there is only one copy of it,&x201D; Ling Fei replied with a smug look on her face. &x201C;I advise you to hand the maps over to us now instead of waiting for us to grab it away from you.&x201D;
&x201C;Dream on! We worked so hard to obtain these maps. Why would we give the maps to you just like that?&x201D; Jin Mingchen said as he stepped up and stood in front of Jiang Yuning in a defensive manner. However, at this time, the muscular young boy stepped forward and pushed Jin Mingchen aside with just one hand.
&x201C;Yuning, if you refuse to handover the other four maps to us, I will destroy the two maps that I have with me. This way, none of us would be able to figure out the location of the hidden key and we can all fail the mission together,&x201D; Ling Fei said as she took the two maps out of her pocket, as though she was prepared to tear it into pieces.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, don&x2019;t give her the maps!&x201D; Jin Mingchen yelled in frustration. He was really annoyed at Ling Fei and he did not even feel this frustrated with Xu Beishen during the first issue of
After hesitating for a moment, Jiang Yuning finally took the maps out and handed them over to Ling Fei.
Xu Beishen and Tong Tong, who were sitting on the ground at this time, could only watch helplessly as Jiang Yuning handed the maps over to Ling Fei because they no longer had the energy or strength to fight back.
&x201C;Sorry, but we are setting off to find the hidden key now. This is the good luck that the goddess of luck has!&x201D;
&x201C;#!*%#!!&x2026;&x201D; At this time, Jin Mingchen cursed at Ling Fei because he could not hold back his anger anymore.
However, Jiang Yuning reached out her hand and stopped Jin Mingchen immediately. &x201C;Don&x2019;t get so agitated.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Yuning, they took all of our maps from us! This is daylight robbery!&x201D;
After gathering the six maps, Ling Fei walked away in an arrogant manner before her team members followed after her. At this time, Jiang Yuning quickly reminded her own teammates, &x201C;Do you guys remember the final hint that the production team gave us before we entered the island? The riddle that said &x2018;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.&x2019;&x201D;
&x201C;Why? Sister Yuning, do you know the meaning behind this riddle?&x201D; Jin Mingchen asked as he looked at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;The meaning behind this riddle is that we should not be blinded by the temporary goodness or luck in front of us, thinking that the worst of times are already behind us. In fact, we should be cautious and continue trying hard to attain victory. If you decipher this riddle, then I believe that Ling Fei is both the god of luck and the source of all evil. Do you guys agree with me?&x201D;
This was because Jiang Yuning did not believe that Ling Fei&x2019;s team would be able to attain victory so easily just because they had gotten all of the maps in their hands. Moreover, they were already exhausted after a long night of battling with the monsters.
&x201C;So, what should we do now?&x201D;
&x201C;What should we do now? We have to follow closely behind Ling Fei&x2019;s group!&x201D;
At this time, Ling Fei and her teammates were already in a joyous and celebratory mood because they believed that they were about to emerge as the victors of this race. This was because they had already pinpointed the exact location of the hidden key after combining the six maps.
They rushed towards the jungle marked on the map as the location of the hidden key, thinking that they would finally be able to wash up and rest after getting out of this island in a short while. As soon as they stepped into the jungle, they encountered countless traps that the production team had prepared in advance.
&x201C;Snakes&x2026;there are snakes!&x201D;
Ling Fei was extremely frightened at this point. Did she really expect the production team to allow them to retrieve the key so easily?
A swarm of snakes suddenly appeared out of no where and started attacking the group of men. The blood meters of the four remaining men in Ling Fei&x2019;s team were completely depleted and dropped to zero at this point.
The participants were automatically forfeited from the mission as soon as their blood meter got zeroed.
This must be God&x2019;s punishing them for trying to steal the fruits of someone else&x2019;s labour, and for stepping into the forbidden area with such pride and complacency.
At this time, Ling Fei ran out of the jungle in a hurry but it was already too late because her blood meter had also been completely zeroed.
Jiang Yuning and her teammates saw everything that had happened to Ling Fei&x2019;s group because they had been tailing them all along.
Hehehe. Are you still arrogant? Still feeling lucky now?
&x201C;Ling Fei&x2019;s group has been completely annihilated&x2026;is this their retribution?&x201D; Jin Mingchen could not help but laughed out loud.
&x201C;You have no rights to laugh at us. You will go through the same fate as us when you enter the jungle later!&x201D; Ling Fei yelled at Jin Mingchen because she was extremely dissatisfied.
Same fate as them? Not a chance in the world.
At this time, Jiang Yuning and her teammates quickly reached into their backpacks and brought out all the pistols that they had collected throughout the way.
She was going into the jungle to retrieve the key so that she could go home and see her second young master Lu!
