If Time Could Be Turned Back (2)
Lin Yanming felt like he had lost the ability to think.
Shi An came closer, and waved his hand in front of Lin Yanming’s eyes.
——What’s wrong What do you think is wrong!
Looking at the innocent expression of the other party, Lin Yanming felt that he urgently needed a CPR professional.
He couldn't even speak normally: "You...you...the east! I said go to the east side of the forest zone, not, not this—"
"Huh" Shi An had a blank expression on his face.
"But I thought we were on the way"
So you **ing planned to come here from the start!
——On the way you big bastard!
Lin Yanming almost broke down.
After a long silence…
"...Then let's go over it again," Lin Yanming said slowly and stiffly.
"The current situation is that I don't know what went wrong in the simulated combat, and now I can't contact the outside world at all.
I can't even use the positioning function.
So…..where I want to go right now is to the emergency exit in the center of the forest zone.
You, you understand now"
Shi An blinked and said in a quiet voice: "Understood."
His voice was even quieter: "But, I don't know how to get to the forest zone."
Lin Yanming felt that he was approaching the brink of falling apart again.
Only he heard the other party continue, "Speaking of which, is there an emergency exit in every zone"
Lin Yanming: "......Every zone probably has one."
Shi An: "Then what about going to the emergency exit in this zone"
Lin Yanming was taken aback.
This...also seemed like a plan
Hesitating, he looked at the adolescent in front of him, wondering if he should board the other party's pirate ship again.
Before, when Shi An claimed to be lucky, they had not only encountered a lion-headed beast, but were also robbed by other students.
And the time he claimed to have a good sense of direction, they came to the most dangerous scorched earth zone.
However, Lin Yanming thought about it.
His self claims were awful, but in fact he was laying low—perhaps he really had a trick up his sleeve
And most importantly, he seemed to have no other choice now.
Holding onto the last glimmer of hope, Lin Yanming seemed to have made up his mind.
He raised his hand and wiped his face.
Then, he said as if looking death in the face,: "……Alright."
Shi An squinted his eyes and smiled happily: "Yay~"
Suddenly, he seemed to have thought of something, and continued: "Oh, by the way, further ahead is an area with poisonous gas, so you'd better wrap yourself up with magic power first.
Otherwise you might die of poisoning before making it out."
Lin Yanming fell silent again.
Is it too late for me to regret it now
Inside the laboratory of the Bureau of Administration:
Zhuo Fu lowered his head and carefully handled the small sample of monster tissue in front of him.
He already knew about the matter of the academy.
Confirming the location of the abyss crack was, of course, a good thing, but it being inside the school, meant that after the abyss spreads, it would cause a lot of collateral damage.
But these were not the issues that Zhuo Fu had to worry about.
As the head of the laboratory, what he needed to do was to figure out why the abyss cracks had appeared so frequently recently, and why its power was far stronger than usual.
Although the spread of the crack in the academy was inseparable from the high-level magic fluctuations in the academy, it could not be denied that this was the first time in hundreds of years that the crack in the abyss could develop to this level.
This made Zhuo Fu feel a sense of crisis.
Suddenly, without warning, the high-precision magic power monitor on the table beeped.
Zhuo Fu was startled and turned to look.
In order to minimize outside interference, the laboratory was strictly protected and shielded.
Why did the monitoring meter still respond like this
He reached out and picked up the monitor.
He stood up, looking for the leak in magic power.
The dial on the meter swayed erratically, and finally reached its peak at a certain moment.
Zhuo Fu lifted his head—
Behind the protective layer of the glass in front of him, a long sword tightly wrapped by a cloth strip quietly sat in the darkness.
A sort of invisible hum spread out, as if it were whispering in some ancient, unknown language.
Zhuo Fu was stunned: "......."
He almost dropped his jaw in shock.
He was frozen in disbelief, as if he couldn't believe his eyes.
What Mu Heng said was actually true.
In the main control room of the academy:
“Beep beep beep beep——” Wen Yao's cell phone rang.
She answered the phone, and Zhuo Fu's noisy voice immediately came from the other side of the phone: "Where's your superior I can't get through to Mu Heng's phone! Go find him for me quickly—"
Wen Yao silently held the microphone away from her ear: "Is there an urgent matter"
"Bull**!" Zhuo Fu said, burning with impatience.
Wen Yao replied, "Chief has entered the quarantine zone."
"..." The voice on the other end of the phone paused for half a second: "What"
Wen Yao raised her head and looked at the emergency access door not far away that had just been closed a few seconds ago.
She said, "Just about...
a minute before you called."
