Chapter 93: Limelight
Light and shadow flashed.
Four figures appeared at the 70th floors entrance.
As soon as they appeared, they randomly tore apart the various cloth strips covering their faces and gasped for air.
On the 70th floor, there was already a person waiting.
That person smiled as he saw the four in such a state.
“Looks like you guys just encountered a gas chamber,” he said as he walked forward.
“Not too shabby.
It was not difficult to pass through the gas chamber.
My teammate needed to get something done and left the tower.
It is an exciting time for all of you.
I agree to allow you to join my team.”
His tone, expression, and even how he walked all conveyed a message.
It was a man who exuded a kind of brainless pride.
It was unfortunate that such an arrogant individual was ignored after he finished speaking.
There was no mockery or sarcasm.
Zhu Xingguo began to howl after removing the mask and taking a few deep breaths.
He howled loudly.
He beat his chest and stamped his feet as he howled.
When the proud man saw that scene, he frowned subtly.
Another shout came from the other side just as he was about to say something.
Zhang Lanlan removed her mask and began jumping.
At the same time, she danced and shouted, “Two points, two points, two points!”
Her appearance suggested that she could not express the excitement in her heart without jumping with all her might.
She jumped with all her might, her hands turning into claws, and she desperately wanted to scratch something.
After looking around, she leaned against the wall and scratched it.
Ren Ruoruo, who stood beside Wang Wen, was the only rational member of the team.
She looked at Wang Wen and stuttered, “W-why was the last mechanism so fast”
Wang Wen looked at the proud man standing before him, whose face was getting darker and darker, and smiled.
He said, “Because of the three-arrow trap.
That set of steps shifted the simplest three arrows to the last.
So, as long as we solve the second-to-last trap, its equivalent to solving all the traps.
We dont have to wait long.”
Ren Ruoruo suddenly realized it.
“No wonder! ”
Zhu Xingguo yelled, “F*ck! F*ck! F*ck!”
Zhang Lanlan continued to scratch the wall.
The proud man could not take it anymore and shouted, “Hey!”
“Argh!” Zhang Lanlan, who had been scratching the wall, seemed to have regained her senses from the pain.
She ran in front of Wang Wen, her hands covered in blood as she grabbed his sleeve and said, “Captain, my boyfriend left the tower just now.
I apologize on his behalf!”
She bowed to Wang Wen.
After thinking for a moment, she bowed to the other two teammates and said apologetically, “Everyone, Im sorry.”
“Its okay.” Wang Wen shook his head and casually asked, “What are your plans next Do you want to continue with us or look for him ”
Zhang Lanlan said guiltily, “Im sorry, Captain.
I want to look for him.
Can I take down your contact information”
She took out a marker pen, opened her palm, and said, “I want to invite you and everyone to have a meal to express my apology.
I also feel that my boyfriend was too rude, and I feel very apologetic.”
“Theres no need to apologize.” Wang Wen picked up the pen and wrote his number on her hand.
He smiled and said, “We can go for a meal.
When the time comes, I will order the most expensive dishes.
You two be careful with your wallets.”
Zhang Lanlan did not know why her eyes were red.
She used the back of her other hand to wipe the corner of her eyes and smiled happily.
“Thank you, Captain.”
She turned to the others, pursed her lips, and nodded.
“Thank you, everyone.”
In the end, she grabbed Ren Ruoruos hand and said, “Thank you.”
Ren Ruoruo patted the back of her hand and asked helplessly, “Im curious.
Why are you so emotional What have we done foryou”
Zhang Lanlan burst out laughing, sobbing, and rubbing her eyes.
“I dont know either.
I just want to cry.
Ive never met such a good team before.
I keep feeling that after this farewell, we wont have the chance to meet again in the future.
Ren Ruoruo smiled and took some time to look at Wang Wen.
She said to Zhang Lanlan, “Silly woman, lets meet outside the tower.”
Zhang Lanlan nodded, covered her mouth, and waved to everyone.
The countdown time was up.
A white light lit up and disappeared.
The drone was about to fly over to announce the time, but when it saw that there were only a few people, it flew back.
The proud man was ignored again and again.
He was furious.
He pointed at the spot where the white light disappeared and shouted, “What was that What was that ”
Wang Wen looked at him and smiled.
“That means that we have to wait for another person.”
The man was furious.
He pointed at himself and roared, “You want me to wait Do you know who I am ”
Wang Wen could not help but laugh when he heard that.
He looked at him strangely.
“I dont know who you are, but I know that no matter who you are, you will have to wait now.”
Zhu Xingguo did not curse anymore.
He walked to Wang Wens side with a solemn expression.
“Okay!” The proud man looked at the two people beside Wang Wen.
He nodded and stepped back.
“Okay! Wait That makes sense.”
In fact, the drone would not be so kind as to give them too much time for rest.
In just a few seconds, a new figure entered the entrance.
The newcomer rubbed his eyes and saw the situation clearly before he said, in a loud voice, “Well, just waiting for me Hello, everyone.”
He nodded and smiled at everyone.
“Let me introduce myself.
My surname is Liu.
Im permanently stationed on the 320th floor.
Its a pleasure to meet all of you.”
The other partys attitude was good, and Wang Wen became very amiable.
He replied, “My name is Mr.
A, and those two are my teammates, Ah Yan and Sha Zhouleng.”
The newcomer was stunned for a moment, then nodded and smiled.
“What a good name!”
The proud man not far away curled his lips in disdain.
“The 320th floor Pfft”
The newcomer and Wang Wens ears moved at the same time.
The newcomer asked, “May I have your name On which floor are you permanently stationed”
The proud man curled his lips in disdain.
“Would you believe me if I said I am on the 400th floor If you dont believe me, then pretend I didnt say anything.”
“A world-class boss” The rookies expression changed, and he solemnly cupped his hands.
“I am Liu, and I have been rude to you.
I did not expect to meet an expert from the 400th floor on the field team.
Sorry for my rudeness.”
The proud man looked at him in surprise.
“You believe me”
“Climbing a tower is not like picking up girls.
Passing the level depends on hard strength.
“Theres no point in lying,” the newcomer calmly said.
The proud mans expression became much better after hearing that.
Soon, he started chatting with the newcomer.
Ren Ruoruo moved to Wang Wens side and smiled.
“Captain, it seems like someone stole your limelight.”
When Wang Wen, who was checking his backpack, heard that, he looked up and smiled as well.
Liu is right.
Climbing the tower depends on strength.
Limelight is meaningless.
“Hey!” As he spoke, the proud man shouted, “How are the rewards distributed”
Wang Wen waved his hand.
“Its up to you.”
The proud man shouted, “Then its up to me.
Dont say that Im bullying you guys.”
Wang Wen waved his hand.
The drone descended.
It announced the start of the level after confirming the distribution mode.
“The 70th floor, begins.”
The surrounding fog dispersed.
A square, flat stone field stood in front of them.
Each corner had a gleaming teleportation door that spit out strange-looking creatures.
Everyones eyes instantly narrowed in unison.
It had appeared!
The world-famous money-farming holy Land.
It was the Square Formation!
