Chapter 465: Nightmare (2)
Both Muqing and Xiaoxiao heaved a sigh. It was true that the Yun family had a special status.
“Then we’ll be waiting for your decision. When you’re done, ask that Mu guy to inform us,” said Xiaoxiao casually. She didn’t even remember Mu Yinghua’s name. After saying that, they turned around and left. Yun Feng smiled helplessly. They had come straight to her instead of the captain. That was truly…
“Guys!” said Yun Feng. All the explorers of the Fengyun Empire looked at her. Even though Mu Yinghua was the captain, Yun Feng was a thousand times more influential than him. She caught everybody’s attention with a simple word.
“The Ovey Empire and the Shengyao Empire’s teams have a proposal. Of course, the Fengyun Empire’s team is different. You have the right to object.” Yun Feng glanced at them and then continued, “It remains unknown whether or not this black hole is the entrance to the gods’ relics. We might all be annihilated if we go in together, so they plan to send a few scouts to investigate.”
After she said that, all the other people of the Fengyun Empire fell silent. The people of the De family and the Shang family seemed gloomy, and Mu Yinghua and his lackeys became pale. “I don’t think we should agree with that proposal. We should all go in together, so that we can look out for each other! I think the other teams are only trying to split us up. They might have struck an alliance in secret!” declared Mu Yinghua with indignity.
“Humph! Freaking coward! If you want to go in, be my guest, but don’t drag us into this!” Naturally, the people of the De family and the Shang family snapped.
Mu Yinghua awkwardly looked at Yun Feng, who smiled and said, “I’m fine either way. I support the majority’s decision.”
“Have you reached a decision?” asked Ovey’s and Shengyao’s teams. The people of the De family and the Shang family looked at Mu Yinghua and his lackeys. “We’re on board. What about you, Yun Feng?”
Yun Feng smiled. “As I said, I’m fine either way.” She had essentially abstained.
Mu Yinghua anxiously looked at Yun Feng for help, but Yun Feng simply turned a blind eye on him. The people of the De family and the Shang family laughed. “Okay, it’s decided!”
Muqing and Xiaoxiao approached. “If you agree with our proposal, send a squad in.” They then left. A squad of three had been picked on Ovey and Shengyao’s side. In the Fengyun Empire’s team, everybody looked at each other, knowing that the first to go in would likely die first.
“I think we should just send the three weakest in,” said the people of the De family and the Shang family. Mu Yinghua and his lackeys objected. “No! Why should the weakest be sent in? The strongest should go in! They have a better chance of winning!”
“Bulls*it! How can the weakest contribute to the team? What can you do? You’ll only hold us back! Mu Yinghua, you’d better know yourself better! Do you really think the Mu family was qualified to come here? You three are just losers! It’s time for you to play your part!” The people of the De family and the Shang family spoke mockingly, and Mu Yinghua was unable to refute it at all. Yun Feng simply watched the drama in silence.
“The minority should follow the majority!” Mu Yinghua cried out. The people of the De family and the Shang family all sneered. Mu Yinghua glanced at Yun Feng. “Yun Feng, do you agree?” asked Mu Yinghua confidently. Yun Feng had been quite nice to him. Would she watch him get killed?
However, Mu Yinghua was mistaken. He was just an excuse for her to visit the Mu family. She wouldn’t mind even if he died now that he had invited her. She smiled charmingly, “I’m fine either way.”
Mu Yinghua’s eyes contracted. He and his lackeys all turned pale. “Please… don’t…” Mu Yinghua looked at Yun Feng, as if she was a lifesaving straw. Yun Feng said with a smile, “Who do you think should be sent in if not you?”
Mu Yinghua looked at the people of the De family and the Shang family. He certainly didn’t dare to ask them to go in. He looked back at Yun Feng. “You, of course! You’re too strong to encounter any danger! You’re a summoner! You have your Magic Beasts! You aren’t afraid of anything, are you? I’ll surely get killed in there! You don’t want me to die, do you?”
Yun Feng put on an even more brilliant smile. “I’m very uncomfortable with your reasoning, but I forgive you for a certain someone’s sake. Are you going in voluntarily, or do you want me to send you in?”
Mu Yinghua became pale, and so did his lackeys, who regretted following him. Although they had received some gifts, their lives were at risk! “It’s decided then. You can go there now,” said the people of the De family and the Shang family mockingly. “Mu Yinghua, as the captain, you should lead the charge. You’ve fulfilled your duty as the captain.”
Mu Yinghua and his lackeys stepped up grimly. They had thought of resisting, but the result would’ve been the same even if they had. Ovey’s and Shengyao’s scouts walked out too. They were all part of the royal family’s team, and didn’t complain at all. The Fengyun Empire’s team, on the other hand, needed to vote for every decision.
All the nine explorers stood in front of the black hole. Mu Yinghua suddenly shouted, “Wait a moment! One scout from each team should be enough! Why three?”
Both Muqing and Xiaoxiao sneered. “Are the odds of survival higher when you have two teammates, or when you’re alone?”
Mu Yinghua instantly fell quiet. The nine scouts, in three rows, walked into the dark entrance in turns. Mu Yinghua was the last. He hoped that Yun Feng would change her mind. However, Yun Feng had been staring at him coldly, until he entered the entrance and disappeared into the darkness.
“Let’s just wait for a while. If we receive any information from them, we’ll go in,” said Xiaoxiao. All the others agreed. The ten people of the Fengyun Empire each had their own Sound Transmission Jades for easier communication. Ovey’s and Shengyao’s teams must’ve carried the same tools.
