Chapter 103: The 100th Floor of Evil
Ren Ruoruo ran to the far side of the pile of rubble to deal with a personal problem.
Wang Wen looked around and narrowed his eyes.
For some reason, he did not like that place.
There was a feeling in the pit of his stomach that told him to leave the tower.
That feeling would only appear in his previous life when he reached the super-high levels above the 500th floor.
He called it a bad omen!
He had assumed that only he would be able to have such an experience.
He stood for a long time in the same spot, looking lonely and narcissistic.
He was surprised when Mo Ran approached him unexpectedly.
His eyes were as sharp as an eagles as he scrutinized his surroundings.
“This level is not right!” he said quietly to him.
“It is downright depressing and insecure!”
Wang Wen glanced at him.
“Were climbing a tower, not having a spring outing.
Its only reasonable that you dont feel safe!”
“This is not right!” Mo Ran shook his head repeatedly.
“I didnt have this feeling even when I rushed to the 400th floor! Theres something wrong here; its strange!”
Wang Wen raised his eyebrows.
From how he spoke, it sounded like he wanted to leave, which made him sad.
He asked, “Do you mean youre planning to leave”
“Leave” Mo Ran turned his head to look at him in surprise as if he were a coward.
“If you want to leave, you can! Such an exciting level was rarely seen in a hundred years; how can I not spend three days and three nights here”
Wang Wen was taken aback by the response, and he realized he had misinterpreted the other partys meaning.
“Three days and three nights is too long, isnt it” He turned his head awkwardly.
The World Tower is about to be reset.
“Anyway, Im not going to pass thislevel quickly, so Im going to study whats so strange about it.” Mo Ran thought for a moment and said, “Dont rush the progress, or else well break up!”
Wang Wen did not want to argue on that issue at all.
He shrugged indifferently to express his attitude.
At that time, Zhu Xingguo, who was nearby, came over with a solemn expression and said, “Captain, dont you think that Xiao Ren has been gone for a little too long”
Wang Wen had a nagging feeling of foreboding in his heart.
He tried to move his ears, possibly because he was too far away to hear her.
He said calmly, “Shes a woman.
She will always be slower.
Zhu Xingguo nodded and took two steps forward.
He shouted, “Xiao Ren! Ren Ruoruo, are you okay”
There was only silence.
Zhu Xingguo shouted again, “Ren Ruoruo, answer me!”
Before he could finish his sentence, Mo Ran rushed forward like a bolt of lightning.
They quickly followed him and ran to the high pile of rubble where Ren Ruoruo had gone.
They jumped over from the side as soon as they realized Mo Ran was skilled.
“Whats the situation” Wang Wen saw that he was frowning and did not say anything, so he asked, “Where is she”
Mo Ran shook his head.
“Theres no one there.
Theres only a hole.”
Wang Wen and Zhu Xingguo exchanged glances before slowly climbing over the pile of rubble.
They noticed a large hole more than half a meter wide and bottomless behind the pile of rubble.
Zhu Xingguo carefully poked his head out of the hole to inspect the darkness.
“What should we do, Captain” he asked as he turned around.
Wang Wen frowned and seemed troubled.
He and Mo Ran both agreed that there was something strange about that checkpoint.
The danger was apparent when a hundred-story tower climber vanished without a sound.
The caves situation was unknown.
They might be in danger if they took the risk and went down the cave, regardless of whether they would survive.
If they did not go down the cave and let their teammates go missing, it would have an unnoticeable impact on the teams cohesion.
Peoples hearts would waver, and they would no longer be firm.
That was not an easy decision to make.
The quiet young man became uneasy when he saw the silent and frozen atmosphere.
“Dont worry,” he said, gathering his strength.
“Its possible she had left the tower.”
On the other side, Mo Ran snickered and did not say anything.
He took out a metal rod and explored the path beside the cave.
Zhu Xingguo shook his head and said, “She would have called out to us.”
Wang Wen furrowed his brows and thought for a while.
His extensive experience provided him with a spark of inspiration.
He called out to the drone.
“Request a temporary change in the reward distribution mode to split it evenly.
Confirm it with all of the participants!”
Zhu Xingguo and the youth were stunned and had yet to react.
They did not understand why the distribution mode had suddenly changed.
Only Mo Rans eyes were lit up as he tested the caves edge.
He praised Wang Wen, saying, “Thats a good method.”
Wang Wen shook his head.
“Thats the only chance we have in this round.
Theres no other way.
Well just have to do it the hard way.”
The clumsy drone began to scan everyone, from close to far, to see if they agreed to change the reward distribution to equal shares.
It flew above Zhu Xingguos head for a brief moment.
The next moment, it flew above the youths head.
After Mo Ran confirmed it as well, the drone froze on the spot.
It turned around and went into the hole!
She did not leave the tower! For the time being, she was even alive!
Wang Wen clenched his teeth and declared that he was going down the hole!
Who was going to accompany him
Mo Ran was very excited.
He took the lead and rolled down the holes wall without saying anything.
Wang Wen was the second.
Zhu Xingguo was the third.
The youth hesitated until the end.
He looked around at the ghostly, desolate landscape.
He thought for a while.
He chose to remain on the ground in order to feel safer.
He found a spot with the best view and happily sat down, dropping his backpack.
He took a sip of water from his bottle.
He pulled out a pack of cigarettes and a tobacco stick, smoking while no one was at ease.
He inhaled a few puffs.
He was in a mood.
He pulled a handheld game console from his backpack and powered it up.
More than half of the batteries were still available.
He clenched his fists and fiddled with the cigarette in his mouth.
After winning a game, he celebrated with a puff of smoke.
After losing a game, he let out a puff of smoke to express his rage.
The cigarette in his mouth was gone after a while.
He focused his attention on the game console and played with it intently.
He was not satisfied, so he reached for the cigarette.
He intended to have another.
After touching it a few times, he did not find the cigarette case.
He looked away in annoyance.
The strange thing was that there was no trace of the cigarette case.
He sat up in confusion and pressed the pause button on the game console.
He lifted his legs and buttocks.
He even thought it had fallen into a crack in the stone and purposefully opened some broken stone slabs to look for it.
He searched for a long time but could not find it.
He cursed his bad luck and reached for the water bottle in his backpack to drink.
He caught nothing.
When he turned around, he was astounded to discover that the backpack resting on his back had vanished!
He was the only one sitting by himself on a vast gravel beach.
He finally panicked at that point.
He stood up and took a nervous look around.
There was silence all around him.
He spat some saliva and debated whether he should leave the tower.
After all, he was someone who had reached the 150th floor.
That week had only just begun.
If he died on the 100th floor and escaped, he would not only be humiliated but also not earn much money.
The 80th to 99th floors went by far too quickly.
The two gods demonstrated their abilities.
He had no choice but to make a move.
Even if he wanted to, he could not obtain any funds.
If he were to leave the tower, would his girlfriend, who was counting on him to bring points back home and have a good meal of sashimi on the weekend, scold him to death
He could not leave!
He could not leave even if he died!
The youth made his decision.
He silently summoned the drone and resolved to fight with the items he had in the drone.
The drone that entered the cave had not returned yet, so another drone entered the checkpoint and flew to his side.
When he saw the drone, which was barely a living thing, he realized he was not alone.
He relaxed a little.
He retrieved the item that he had stored from the scanner of the drone.
He had just taken it.
He felt a slight ache in his ankle and his body froze.
The gravel beneath his feet then flowed like quicksand, slowly lowering his body, and vanished.
Only a half-meter vast, bottomless, dark hole was on the ground.
