Chapter 125: Dividing Into Two Groups
Zhong Chengshuo froze on the spot.
Before he had time to put away the long needles around him, the transparent barrier between the red strings flickered. The huge “fish tank” divided the small space into two floors. The outside was the smelly, chaotic corpse cavity, but the inside was quiet.
In the chaotic shadows, the touch on the lips was extremely vivid. Yin Ren’s hot and humid breath rushed towards his face, immediately covering the rancid smell around him.
Should he attack? Stay away? Or…
Zhong Chengshuo felt as if countless small fireworks had exploded in his brain. It was like the light flick of a goldfish’s tail. The feeling wasn’t intense, but it lasted forever.
It was just lips meeting. In the past, Zhong Chengshuo didn’t understand this intimate way of “feeding organs sticking together*”. Now the burning heat of swallowing each other made him dizzy.
*It’s a euphemism for kissing. Feeding organs is referring to your mouth.
Seeing the two of them being sticky, the hazy black shadow on the phone made a weak grunt. Zhong Chengshuo naturally couldn’t see the changes on the phone, but he could hear the complaining “Woof woof”.
Zhong Chengshuo instantly recovered a bit of clarity.
“Mr. Lu… Just now… Um—”
No, the two strikes he made just now definitely weren’t enough to remove the negative effects. Yin Ren had just changed from an “irrational approach” to a “relatively restrained approach”.
Thus, Zhong Chengshuo tried to continue, “Tell me, Yin Ren. He just… Huh?!”
Yin Ren didn’t give him a chance to speak.
He didn’t close his eyes, so the pair of red pupils shimmered. He pressed his soft lips further, accompanied by slightly sharp teeth, giving Zhong Chengshuo a strange sensation. The tips of the teeth gently moved with just the right amount of pressure, bringing a slight sourness and softness. Strands of hair carefully surrounded Zhong Chengshuo as they swayed gently.
Yin Ren kissed awkwardly but firmly. His hands tightly hooked the nylon strap on Zhong Chengshuo’s chest.
The two maintained a seemingly uncomfortable distance, but Zhong Chengshuo no longer struggled. He raised his hand and slowly lowered it, then tentatively raised it again.
His fingertips pressed on Yin Ren’s shoulder, touching the fabric soaked in body heat, then they slid down to Yin Ren’s arm, probing back.
They slowly tightened and finally turned into an embrace.
Zhong Chengshuo tried to concentrate with his remaining rationality. He firmly gripped Dog Thing and continued the “attack” just now. This time, however, the “blade” slid against Yin Ren’s back.
It was like he was teasing but also dissecting.
In the world that was invisible to Zhong Chengshuo, the dark shadow on the phone tentatively squirmed, peeling off the “white monsters” on Yin Ren’s body little by little. Their fragments were as light as willow flakes, swaying and falling around the two of them.
The remaining little monsters may have noticed the existence of Dog Thing and retreated like the tide, beginning to crawl away from Yin Ren’s body.
The brilliance in Yin Ren’s eyes was returning, but his kiss didn’t become lighter but instead got heavier. Zhong Chengshuo’s lips felt some pain. His teeth were pried open, and the other party’s breath was pierced directly into him with a sweet, bloody aura.
A warm and lingering strange touch.
That weird alert reappeared, but he wanted to continue this hair-raising contact. Zhong Chengshuo took a compromising approach—he exerted force from his waist and legs, his arms twisted, and he pressed the Yin Ren to the ground, so that he could free himself at any time.
Under the light impact, the two of them knocked their teeth slightly, and the bloody aura became a bit stronger.
Amidst the faint blood, they kissed each other quietly and jerkily.
Zhong Chengshuo had never felt this way before. He even forgot the nature of the “ground” under him. His heart was beating wildly because of the tension, and his spirit was frozen on the feelings of his lips.
When Yin Ren pushed back, the sky spun around, and the two of them flipped. Zhong Chengshuo had his back on the ground, and he reflexively tried to get up, but black hair had wrapped around his ankles.
There weren’t many strands of hair, so he could tear them off by force, and there was an opening in the left side, so he could easily escape with some force.
However, Zhong Chengshuo didn’t move.
Every nerve of his was tense. Instinct prompted him to avoid. Curiosity forced him to continue. Attraction and vigilance, safety and danger, survival and death; the junction between them was so blurred and was twisted into a weird and strong excitement.
Yin Ren’s kiss gradually changed flavor.
The kiss slowly moved; first to his slightly cool lips, then to his chin.
At a certain moment, the heat on his cheeks suddenly disappeared. The evil tilted its head slightly; its warm breath flowing down his skin, and quickly stopped at Zhong Chengshuo’s throat.
Yin Ren’s sharp teeth gently pressed against the skin, making him feel a little itchy. The itching in his throat ignited his nerves and penetrated all the way into his bones.
Zhong Chengshuo’s mouth was finally free. He knew what he should say, but his vocal cords didn’t listen. All he could do was move his right hand and squeeze the back of Yin Ren’s neck, not too lightly nor heavily, with a bit of warning force.
As if awakened, Yin Ren’s biting abruptly stopped.
The tip of Yin Ren’s nose rubbed against Zhong Chengshuo’s Adam’s apple. His breathing completely stopped, but his heartbeat was too fast to be normal. In his dim vision, Zhong Chengshuo could only see Yin Ren’s black hair scattered all over the ground. Yin Ren’s grasp on him loosened, and there was a vague sound in his throat as if he were struggling.
Zhong Chengshuo pursed his lips instinctively and tasted the warm and slightly salty liquid.
There were no wounds on his lips. This was Yin Ren’s blood.
It was a pity that before he had time to continue, an excited voice exploded in his ears.
“Hey, hey, hey?” Lu Xiaohe cried happily. “Can you hear me? Can you hear me?”
Zhong Chengshuo sighed, continuing to let Yin Ren stick to his body. He just laid on the ground like this and replied solemnly, “I can.”
“Where’s Yin Ren?”
Yin Ren shook his head. He felt a little dizzy as he silently propped up his body.
He tied up his scattered hair, took Dog Thing from Zhong Chengshuo’s hand, and pinched Yellow Millet from the gap between the nylon straps—while the two had kissed passionately, this thing shrank itself into the size of a peanut, pretending to be air as it clung to the nylon belt buckle.
Lord Ghost King maintained the posture of sitting on Zhong Chengshuo’s waist and abdomen while holding his phone as he looked around.
“Ahhh… Don’t want to die… Ahhh…” The little monsters hugged the fragments of their bodies and huddled together on the edge of Zhong Chengshuo’s seal, tremblingly.
It seemed that it no longer had a desire to fight.
Yin Ren lowered his head and looked at Dog Thing again. The blurred black shadow on the phone had disappeared, and only [Evil Force, Evil Force, Evil Force] was frantically swiping on the screen.
He absent-mindedly replied, “Wait until we get home.”
“I rebuilt the contact line, hehe.” In the headset, Lu Xiaohe was completely unaware of the situation. Her joy was palpable. “When you’re active again, I can calculate the space map!”
“Okay.” Yin Ren coughed twice.
Zhong Chengshuo had been staring at the wound on his lower lip. Yin Ren hurriedly withdrew the blood and healed the wound.
Lu Xiaohe continued enthusiastically, “…The two of your reactions are too cold. Can’t you be happier? Speaking of Xiao Zhong, you should be able to guess the winning condition of this competition.”
Zhong Chengshuo finally looked away and glanced at the dark corpse cavity not far away. “Yes.”
In fact, Yin Ren also had a rough guess in his heart.
Shian threw them here by surprise without giving any background information or hints, which was typical of a skirmish arrangement.
There was only one way out of this “skirmish”, and that was to survive. Considering that Shian wouldn’t really kill them, as long as they could escape, the competition could end.
…But that was just the “end of the competition”.
“According to my guess, this is a free scoring competition. ‘Getting out’ is only considered a pass. There are other performance factors to consider, including—escape time, escape method, physical and mental condition, and any important performance.”
Just in case, Lu Xiaohe enthusiastically explained.
“The fewer the rules, the more things you need to judge for yourself. It’s best not to wander around like a headless fly. Even if there’s no monitoring here, basic location tracking and evil qi detection are indispensable.”
Making sure that those little monsters had no intention of approaching, Yin Ren put Dog Thing away. “We know.”
Zhong Chengshuo looked at him intently, to which Yin Ren tried to avoid his gaze for the first time.
It wasn’t like it was a big deal to sit on his lover’s stomach, since he did it all the time, but when Yin Ren tried to stand up, Zhong Chengshuo grabbed his wrist.
Zhong Chengshuo looked at Yin Ren persistently as he responded smoothly, “Lu Jie, give me your location. Let’s meet up.”
“No,” Lu Xiaohe answered crisply.
“As the rear commander, I have to give priority to collecting intelligence and directing combat forces to escape. If I run around, the efficiency will be seriously reduced… My guess is that if I escape first, my points will be deducted.”
“Understood.” Zhong Chengshuo replied perfunctorily.
Yin Ren hummed approvingly. Lu Xiaohe’s judgment was correct. She had no combat ability, and “prioritizing self-protection” and “supporting the combatants” should indeed be her priorities.
Just like now, “stand up from Zhong Chengshuo” was what he should be doing. Yin Ren shook the wrist that was grabbed by Zhong Chengshuo, but the man still held it tightly and insisted on using it as a cushion.
Zhong Chengshuo said, “Explore the surrounding situation first and contact us later.”
“Hey, hey. Wait a minute. We can still chat casually for a while—” Comrade Lu Xiaohe understood, but in this hellish place, it was good to have a living person to chat with.
“We need a ‘two-person world’,” Zhong Chengshuo replied solemnly.
“Xiao Zhong, do you know that Shian can also hear our communication?”
“Then Yin Ren and I have some personal issues that need to be dealt with.”
“…Okay, you guys deal with it first.” Lu Xiaohe squeezed out a response between her teeth.
She knew those two little rabbits… Those big brats were unreliable. Lu Xiaohe turned grief and anger into strength and began to search for Ge Tingting and Huang Jin, who were farther away.
And the two big brats were facing each other in a not-so-graceful posture.
“I should have picked a clean place to kiss you. I was wrong. I’m sorry,” Yin Ren said uncomfortably. “There’s also good news. Dog Thing is quite good, so those things won’t approach again.”
As for Zhong Chengshuo, Yin Ren suspected that even if this person was covered in layers of paste, his emotions probably wouldn’t be affected.
“The problem isn’t the kissing. I like your kiss very much.”
Zhong Chengshuo pointed to his throat, and there was still a light red mark on his skin.
“I just want to know, why did you bite me just now? Your state isn’t right.”
Yin Ren inwardly twisted.
If this was switched to someone else, he might be able to get away with this problem without getting caught. Unfortunately, Comrade Xiao Zhong didn’t know what euphemism was. After they started dating, instead of making progress, this person became even more candid, which was a bit scary.
“I just had the urge to ‘swallow you’.”
Yin Ren forced himself to withdraw his gaze and looked directly into Zhong Chengshuo’s eyes.
“Swallow you down and combine us into one so we’ll never have to separate again… It’s just a thought similar to a person being under the influence and ‘wanting to beat his boss’. I just took a bite, and I definitely don’t have any intention of putting it into practice!”
Lord Ghost King showed all his sincerity as he spoke at his fastest speed to explain.
However, it was similar to what he thought. In face of such a shocking statement, Zhong Chengshuo simply let out a sigh.
“Then why didn’t you bite all the way?” Zhong Chengshuo continued to ask with interest.
Yin Ren looked at this person in shock. “Don’t you think such a thought is too perverted? I definitely don’t really want to hurt you.”
Although he did feel that this impulse came a bit weird.
As a sunny and sound evil, Yin Ren had never had such thoughts before. When thinking about the difference in lifespan, he only thought about how to keep this person “scientifically”. Even if he was affected by deep “attachment”, he controlled it very well, turning the emotion that was magnified thousands of times into a kiss.
But not long ago, the moment he kissed Zhong Chengshuo, this aggressive thought came down from the sky and rolled around in Yin Ren’s mind.
“In other words, this is the first time you have the idea of ‘obviously like it but want to hurt me’.” Zhong Chengshuo objectively summarized, as if it wasn’t himself who was almost nibbled on.
“That being said…”
Yin Ren was a little confused. He didn’t understand what Zhong Chengshuo wanted to express. It seemed that his person didn’t plan to make trouble with him at this point, right?
“If such an idea appears in the future, can you tell me directly? Just treat it as an evil thing to observe.” Zhong Chengshuo loosened his grip on Yin Ren’s wrist.
Then he took out a hard-cover book and, in front of Yin Ren, wrote down several lines.
Yin Ren: “……”
Got it. So you created a special journal for observing biology, right?
But as the one who acted first, he couldn’t say a word of refusal.
After he finished writing, Zhong Chengshuo seemed to be aware of something and turned his gaze to Yin Ren again. “It’s okay. I really don’t mind… I’m going to release the spirit weapons. Are you sure you won’t get caught again?”
“Sure.” Yin Ren covered the surface of his body with a layer of evil qi that was almost solid, which could be considered an anti-monster cream.
With a bang, Zhong Chengshuo’s “sealed fish tank” shattered.
The white monsters saw that there was nothing to gain. Sobbing, they burrowed back into the carrion and ran away. Yin Ren scratched his head vigorously to calm down from his trance.
“Sorry, it seems like I need to be more serious.” He stretched his muscles.
It seemed that this game couldn’t be easily handled. Fu Xingchuan had thrown these weird techniques and unknown monsters in front of him, so he had to show a serious attitude. They would have to mix in with Shian in the future, so they obviously couldn’t be too lazy.
Zhong Chengshuo nodded solemnly. His lips were slightly red and swollen. Coupled with that handsome and wistful face, there was a subtle attraction.
Yin Ren couldn’t help but take out Dog Thing again and took preventive measures by patting the dead corners of his T-shirt.
Just when the two of them had sorted out their clothes and were ready to leave—
“…Xiao Yin…” A dry and shocked voice floated out of the dark cavity. “You two… Why are you two…”
Yin Ren and Zhong Chengshuo: “……”
Oh right, Fierce Ghost Grandpa Lu was still there.
Lord Ghost King silently raised his hand and slowly covered his face.
It was rare that Wei Huaqian wasn’t in the dim underground headquarters of Sunken Society.
He was staying on the top floor of a luxury hotel in Haigu. The rooms here were famous for their excellent views. Looking out from the huge floor-to-ceiling windows, the central park in Haigu was lush and green, and the city was surrounded by mountains with gently undulating peaks. The Shian building stood not far away, like a nail that couldn’t be pounded in, which was a bit unsightly.
Wei Huaqian picked up a piece of stewed and soft fish lips and chewed absentmindedly.
His phone was on speaker and was placed on the edge of the table.
“…What I just said is exactly what Mr. Qiu meant.”
A gentle female voice echoed in the empty room, as standard as the customer service voice of a listed company.
Wei Huaqian didn’t answer immediately. He took out a napkin and wiped his mouth slowly, then swallowed a sip of wine. As soon as his Adam’s apple bobbed, it took a full half a minute before he spoke.
“What does Mr. Qiu mean?”
Wei Huaqian turned the glass of wine with his fingers.
“Shooting the Charon I want to cultivate is Mr. Qiu’s intention. It was Ms. Qi’s intention to destroy our research in Gengsheng Town. Twice—twice in a row—as ‘collaborators’, you have caused us extremely heavy losses.”
“Now there’s no shadow of the next Charon ability user and the research materials in Gengsheng Town are also cognitively polluted. We can’t make another imitation—isn’t this funny? As the leader of thousands of years of research, no one ever knows the name of the ‘Imitation’.”
The only good thing may be that this cognitive pollution applies equally to all beings. Sunken Society may not be able to read it, but that same applies to Shian as well… Mr. Qiu’s gang could provide a large number of sources of Evil Force, so it wasn’t surprising to have such special ability.
Unfortunately, Wei Huaqian wanted to be more cautious, but these guys went too far. Taking such a big loss and not saying a word wasn’t the style of Sunken Society.
After listening to what he said, there was no sound on the other side of the line. He couldn’t even hear the sound of breathing.
Wei Huaqian took another sip of wine, then spoke with a little more coldness in his voice.
“You provide stable Evil Force corruption, and we share the human data of those corrupted to you. This was supposed to be a fair trade, but now it seems that you have interfered too much.”
“…So this time, we came to greet you in advance.”
Ten seconds later, the woman on the other line spoke as if nothing had happened; her voice was still gentle like before.
“Mr. Qiu decided to test those two little people, and they happen to be the object of your attention. The fact that we informed you in advance is also a kind of sincerity on our side, don’t you think?”
We Huaqian looked at the sunny city outside the floor-to-ceiling window and snorted.
“You want to start with Zhong Chengshuo and Yin Ren…”
Now he could be sure that those two boys were definitely not so simple.
Those two had received a lot of “attention”, so Shian must be aware of this. The Haigu branch suddenly participated in a joint exercise competition, and the venue was at the Fu residence. Not to mention, the C-level investigation team didn’t even leave the yard of the Fu family.
That old weasel Fu Xingchuan most likely used the Corpse Cage inherited from the Fu family.
In this regard, Sunken Society had no choice but to quietly wait for the next opportunity.
This was almost a public statement—”Sunken Society has continued to keep an eye on those two, and it’s not just a momentary impulse. The purpose of the attention isn’t so urgent that we will take risks.” Even Fu Xingchuan should know these two points.
Wei Huaqian stared at the delicious soup in the exquisite porcelain bowl as the spoon stirred out sticky bubbles.
After they popped one by one, Wei Huaqian hummed.
“Your Mr. Qiu wants to play, and I can’t stop him, nor do I want to. We only have one request—when he’s ‘playing’, it’s best to show his name in disguise so as to save Shian the trouble of looking for us.”
It would be best if Shian could also catch these guys with some small clues. Wei Huaqian thought this maliciously despite being collaborators.
He had been curious about these strange “suppliers” for a long time.
“We will.” There was a hint of laughter in the gentle female voice. “This was originally our unilateral action.”
“I’m still a little curious, and I hope you can answer,” Wei Huaqian said.
“How do you plan to break through the ‘Corpse Cage’? Given Shian’s personality, the Corpse Cage will definitely be placed in a closed underground room, with several experts guarding it. Not to mention the Fu family itself has various protection techniques that have been passed down for thousands of years, including the immortal old man Fu Wuya sitting in command.”
For generations, the Fu family had sat on the top levels of Huajisi, and their status in the metaphysical world wasn’t low. The Fu residence could be considered the alternate headquarters. For thousands of years, Sunken Society had used countless means but failed to penetrate it. In modern times, Sunken Society gave up on this hard-to-chew bone.
To break through the defense of the Fu family, one would need a Charon ability user who could shuttle through space, which the mysterious “supplier” might possess. Together with those unknown sources of Evil Force pollution, the opportunity was quite tempting.
If these people were restrained by Shian and revealed their true colors, there was no telling how much Sunken Society would be able to swallow up…
“Hehe, trade secrets.”
The gentle female voice responded; the smile in her tone was obvious this time.
“Like you said, this is a fair deal. Please don’t interfere too much, Mr. Wei.”
The call hung up.
Wei Huaqian sneered and flipped his phone over. He pulled out the laptop that was placed on the table and clicked into a certain folder. Inside were photos of Zhong Chengshuo and Yin Ren, tightly packed.
He looked at them for a moment and narrowed his eyes.
On the screen was a photo of Zhong Chengshuo and Yin Ren. When they were photographed, the two of them were shopping and eating at the night market. Yin Ren was stuffing a spoonful of coconut jelly into Zhong Chengshuo’s mouth while half a spoon was in his mouth.
The surveillance was too far away, so the picture was blurry, but it couldn’t cover the intimacy between the two of them.
Wei Huaqian’s wrinkled fingers tapped on the screen and scratched around the two men’s brows.
“Is this a ‘romantic relationship’? That’s a pleasant surprise… I hope Mr. Qiu can drive them crazy. The crazier, the better.”
“I’m really going crazy,” Yin Ren said.
It was past 1 p.m. and he hadn’t eaten lunch yet.
Even a Ghost King had no habit of eating human carrion. After wiping his hand thoroughly with alcohol, Zhong Chengshuo chewed on a compressed biscuit as if nothing had happened, with the aura of eating a regular diet even at the end of the world.
But Yin Ren didn’t want to eat that kind of dry stuff. He held his beloved chocolate chip package and didn’t know whether to open it or not.
He also didn’t want his previous memories to be tarnished by the rancid smell.
Especially after they had passed the fifth hurdles of beetle and the six general of maggots, Yin Ren decided to keep his mouth shut and maintain the noble character that a ferocious evil should have–the Resentment Basket could be eaten, and bad tributes as well, but not bugs; absolutely not.
“Is the map still not ready?” Yin Ren asked Lu Xiaohe pitifully.
“You two are done with your own world” Lu Xiaohe dragged her tone.
Yin Ren: “It’s still not finished. It’s going to take years.”
Lu Xiaohe: “……”
Mental abuse on teammates was prohibited.
She coughed frantically. “I was dropped in the lungs, and you guys are near the heart. As long as you move in a general direction, you should be able to enter the esophagus smoothly.”
There was another clacking of keyboard sound in the headset.
“I just confirmed the location of Huang Jin and Ge Tingting. The two of them ran near the kidney, and there are other Shian signals around them. They’re probably acting with people from other branches and want to escape from here. Theoretically, it’s faster going through the intestines…”
Yin Ren sympathized with the two in his heart for a few seconds.
“The specific situation is sent to your phone,” Lu Xiaohe said. “I’m going to enjoy my one-person world. Bye bye.”
She hung up the call aggressively.
Yin Ren laughed. In such a weird and terrifying environment, Lu Xiaohe could still maintain a relaxed conversation state. It had to be said that this young girl had astounding potential as the rear commander.
Not far away, there was another low whimper.
Again? Yin Ren added several layers of thick evil qi to his body.
This time, Zhong Chengshuo also stopped.
“Someone is crying,” he said firmly, with a hint of excitement on his face.
The corner of Yin Ren’s mouth twitched.
“Someone crying in the wilderness” and “Someone crying inside a carrion” were completely strange in two orders of magnitude. Seeing Zhong Chengshuo’s subconscious reaction, this person really didn’t feel any fear at all.
The faint crying continued, and there were more little white monsters nearby. Yin Ren had already sent Lu Tanfei away, so he used a levitation spell and moved together with Zhong Chengshuo.
“Wuwu… I want to go home. I miss my parents…” A somewhat hoarse female voice sobbed. “Luoluo, can we stop comparing? I’m so homesick…”
“Come on, have another bite! Mmm. It’s very good!” Another energetic female voice encouraged. “When we run out, you can ask for leave to go home to see your parents and I’ll go with you—”
“Mm… I want to go home… I really want to go home…”
Yin Ren made a gesture to Zhong Chengshuo and floated around the corner like a ghost.
Not far away, in the empty meat cavity, Luo Wanxiang and Sang Jie were waiting. Several mechanical rods surrounded a tight laser net, and the two girls were eating lunch inside.
To be precise, it was Lu Wanxiang who was feeding Sang Jie. Although the latter was full of tears, she didn’t stop waving the bone staff in her hand. Behind the two girls, about six fierce ghosts were brutally attacking the Yandu group without mercy.
There were also many white monsters lying on Sang Jie’s traditional outfit. She probably took some remedial measures, as there weren’t too many monsters that gathered on her body.
However, the price wasn’t small. Their faces were covered in grime, and they looked quite tired. Judging by the number of insect corpses nearby, they should have been trapped here for a while.
Yin Ren shrank his head—it seemed that everyone’s performance of being crushed by “attachment” was different. Sang Jie’s performance was “extremely negative”. In comparison, his reaction of “gnawing on Zhong Chengshuo” seemed quite alright.
For now, “not being favored by the white monsters” wasn’t entirely due to Zhong Chengshuo’s physical condition. The impact on the science post was indeed smaller.
“Hey, there’s a Shian signal response near you. They are probably people from the other branches.”
Lu Xiaohe’s vague voice suddenly came out. She had taken advantage of carrying a large luggage and was able to bring many things. It sounded like she was chewing on some delicious meat products.
“I don’t know the specific situation. It’s up to you to judge whether you want to act together or not.”
Yin Ren turned his head knowingly. “Zhong…”
Zhong Chengshuo was floating crossed-legged, folding the empty compressed biscuit bag into small pieces. He ignored the fact that he was inside a corpse and took out a small bag with “trash” printed on it, carefully packing the trash and putting it back into his backpack. His posture was so upright that he looked like a primary school student on a spring outing.
Yin Ren cleared his throat amusingly. “Do you want to act together?”
“What do you think?” Zhong Chengshuo asked a little jerkily.
They were in an advantageous situation, and acting together wasn’t much different from “rescuing your opponent”. Logically speaking, this may score them points, and they may lose points for “not actively cooperating”.
There were pros and cons, so it was difficult to choose. Out of confidentiality considerations, Zhong Chengshuo would mercilessly choose to act alone, but…
“Let’s go together,” Yin Ren whispered. “If it’s really a skirmish, it’s never wrong to unite all fighting forces.”
“And they all have very strong combat capabilities. If I put in more effort, you can use this to conserve your strength.”
Seeing Zhong Chengshuo’s surprised expression, Yin Ren was also shocked. “You haven’t thought you can be lazy, have you?”
“Nn.” King Yama, who was used to acting alone, hesitated for a while and slowly turned his head.
Yin Ren’s expression twisted for a bit before settling on a “disappointed” look.
While the two of them were fooling around, there was a very light sound in the shadows.
Yin Ren grabbed Zhong Chengshuo and flew up abruptly. A cobweb-like white net exploded nearby, and a small mechanical ball spun rapidly, with a small red light flashing in the darkness.
“Which branch’s friend? Eavesdropping isn’t good behavior. Warning! Warning!”
A rigid mechanical sound came from the small ball.
Despite their efforts to suppress their aura, they were still discovered? Yin Ren cleared his throat, intending to speak up…
“Meow meow meow!!!” There was a sharp cat cry full of displeasure that came from the net. “What the hell. My fur is all dirty—!”
Yin Ren slowly shifted his gaze and spotted Dr. Cat struggling frantically within the net. The cat was making human-like sounds and clawing at the net with all its might. To be honest, Machinist Luo Wanxiang didn’t use too much force when setting up the net, so it wasn’t really a threat to humans. However, for a cat, the difficulty was on another level.
Luo Wanxiang obviously realized this too, so she hurriedly got up to make amends.
Before her hand could touch Dr. Cat, the black cat was picked up by the nape of its neck and held in his hand.
“Miss Luo, Miss Sang Jie, and Mr. Meiqiu.”
Yin Ren smiled and removed the net from the black cat.
“Do you want to act together?”
