On the other hand, although the dimensional channel formed by the mini-launcher appeared to be pretty good, they immediately felt the difference once they entered it . It was undeniable that it was really more convenient for their souls to enter and that the dimensional world did not reject their physical bodies . The unique rules of the fifth dimension were compatible with almost all planes, but their experience was really unpleasant . Sister Hong and Reynolds were considered lucky to have passed out, whereas Wang Zhong and Gong Yi really…
Fortunately, this entire journey was very short . Due to it being a channel of a natural spatial coordinate, it was unlike those long-distance transmissions with designated fixed points in the 7th Regiment . Only three to five seconds passed before they reached the end of the channel .
As the four of them fell out of the dimensional channel, and their seemingly fragmented bodies began to re-assemble . Nausea, numbness, swelling, and various negative feelings instantly engulfed them, nearly causing them to pass out .
Wang Zhong and Gong Yi convulsed on the ground for a rather long time before they recovered . They looked up at the sky, feeling the hot sand behind them . This was Earth!
They were truly back on Earth!
The two were about to throw back their heads to laugh long and loud, but only a faint sound was produced . This period of repeated craziness really took a lot out of them, thus they could only stare at each other for a while . They smiled . This indeed was the definition of a silver lining behind every cloud .
After a while, they slowly regained their strength .
"Next time, I must raise the bet if I'm gambling with such high risks again," said Gong Yi with a bitter smile as he slowly stood up . He couldn't help but sigh when he saw that Wang Zhong's ability to move had been fully restored . Although he did not pick up girls, neither smoked nor drank alcohol, his body was really a far cry from Wang Zhong's .
Hidden from sight in ordinary times, the difference between each person's fundamentals would become more obvious in times of suffering . It was indeed undeniable that students from Heroic Soul Academies were extraordinary .
However, before they could start to immerse themselves in happiness, they noticed that they were surrounded by a scorching desert that appeared to stretch infinitely . Unfortunately, they had fallen into the desert of the Tutankhamun Empire . There were already many deserts here initially, but matters grew worse after the dark era . Although some turbulent oases existed, the area of desertification was much wider in comparison .
"In fact, we are already very lucky to have left that place alive, we can't help it if we actually die here," Gong Yi commented, laughing .
"Don't be pessimistic, there are bound to be oases in deserts . We even survived that place, let alone here!" said Wang Zhong . His voice was extremely firm and free of doubt .
Gong Yi froze and wasn't sure if he should laugh or cry . "I respect you, dude . Wang Zhong . If you don't amount to much in the future after surviving this, I will gladly chop off my head for you . Alright, I'll listen to you, let's look around!"
Gong Yi was an extremely smart gambler . He was not easily convinced, even when others were stronger, richer or held more power than him . But for this guy, Wang Zhong, he actually had more perseverance than a gambler, thus Gong Yi was truly convinced . The key was that his tone was full of hope and it began to rub off on Gong Yi .
He was strong, talented, calm, persistent, and meticulous . In fact, he could have killed Granny Fly, but he did not do so, showing that he had a good conscience . It was not weakness . He merely did not want to cross the line . Even though Granny Fly had been acting all along during their journey together, it was impossible that there wasn't a single speck of genuity for them!
His actions weren't for Granny Fly, but for himself .
A cold-hearted person could be very powerful, but he would still have his own limits . Bold and decisive, yet true to his heart, it was no surprise that he could defeat Mo Wen . All of a sudden, Gong Yi thought of a bigger gamble; of course, assuming they could leave this place alive .
This boundless desert of Tutankhamen was no doubt a place of death to anyone's eyes . It was not due to the presence of scary mutated beasts, but rather, the environment itself that held more danger . One would probably not leave this place alive if he lost his way .
They knew that it was probably evening on Earth, thus the sun would set in the west . After a short span of observation, they were able to tell the different directions . "Let's go north . Most of Tutankhamen's cities and oases are in the north of the desert . Let's try our luck . "
In such situations, the worst case was to go around in circles . As long as one kept walking, he could still try his luck, making it possible to run into people or oases .
"I'm guessing we'll have really bad luck . " With a bitter smile, Gong Yi opened his backpack, only to see that his originally huge backpack had been emptied out completely . There was a large opening at the bottom of the backpack, probably due to the previous battle . All the food and water stored in the bag were gone, together with the small bottle of Evil Demon Blood . "My Dharma Idol has a certain luck component, but he still successfully chose the Straight Flush and King Bomb one after another . It seems like our luck has run out . "
Other than Gong Yi, both Wang Zhong and Reynolds's backpacks were in similar states . Originally, there would have been enough food and water to last for a month, but now there was nothing left .
No one took any notice of the backpacks previously, before they left that place; this was probably due to the battle being too intense, as well as Little Xin's incident, making them only realize it now .
Fortunately, Sister Hong's backpack was safe and sound . There were still three bottles of water and three cans of food left . They were all that was left . If they were to be distributed to everyone, the four of them could probably only last five or six days .
Just then, Reynolds and Sister Hong also began to stir . Although they were injured, they both had solid foundations; thus, they regained consciousness not long after Gong Yi gave them some water .
Wang Zhong explained the situation to them while Gong Yi attempted to tell his version of the story . Although speaking made him thirsty, he was delighted to tell the story . He would be driven to his grave if Granny Fly managed to escape the cursed lands without them .
He wasn't afraid of death, but he was afraid to die with injustice unredressed .
"Take the food and water and go . " Sister Hong's voice was rather weak but surprisingly calm .
She could feel that her Soul Sea was bound to collapse . All hope would be lost for someone like her if her Soul Sea was to shatter . Without her power, she would neither be happy nor be free in seeking vengeance, as well as being unable to protect the group of sisters under her wing . To be honest, she was already free of regrets and ready to leave the world, as she had met this bunch of friends with whom she could speak freely on this journey .
As a top assassin, she had already come to an understanding with her own death since the day she chose this profession .
Also, in the cursed lands, everyone helped each other during battles because they needed each other . But now, why would these people need her now that she was a good-for-nothing?
Sister Hong felt like laughing . It made her think of the past .
Relationships, be it love or friendship, were never truly selfless . Humans live to be "needed" by others . All kinds of close relationships were merely mutual exploitation of each other .
Her ex-boyfriend was a perfect example . He could sell her out for money alone, let alone for matters regarding life and death .
Sister Hong could not bear to experience being chosen over again . She had built a strong relationship with these people over the past few days . She would rather be the one to initiate leaving herself behind, rather than being kicked away by others, so she could still retain a good memory of the world before her death . She was free of complaint because she knew that leaving the injured person behind was the best chance the others had .
"You guys can't leave if I'm there to drag you down . " She was straightforward and direct . "Don't waste time giving me that look, just dig a pit for me and bury me deeper . I don't want to be a snack for the desert monsters . "
