Chapter 2305: Meng Wan’er makes her move (5)
Meng Wan’er self-assumed that her explanation was sufficient and was enough to clear her suspicions.
However, Li Moying’s gaze remained icy cold, as he kept silent without saying a word.
Meng Wan’er’s heart was drumming and her voice slowly turned soft and eventually, she shut her mouth.
Huang Yueli opened her mouth and asked, “In this way, Young Miss Meng really doesn’t know what place this is?”
Meng Wan’er naturally shook her head furiously, “I really… really don’t know!”
Huang Yueli spoke again, “Then you also don’t know how to leave this secret room?”
Meng Wan’er still shook her head, “I… I’m not an Armament Master, how would I know where the mechanism in this secret room is located?”
When Huang Yueli heard that, she couldn’t help but gave a cold laugh, “Hur hur, Young Miss Meng is really incredible, have you opened your heavenly eye? You’ve never even been to take a look everywhere, how would you know that this is a secret room? You’re also not an Armament Master, how do you know that there’s a mechanism in this room?”
Meng Wan’er was instantly stunned as her face flushed red and she felt extremely vexed to the max!
This wretched lass was simply too sinister, actually unknowingly dug a pit for her and with a few sentences, made her turn inside it!
Meng Wan’er’s reaction was considered fast as she immediately found an excuse for herself, “This… Young Miss Bai, all these you’re saying… what do these mean? Although I don’t know where this place is, but from the surrounding situation, I’d also know that this should be an early historical remains near Long Sky Summit. In this kind of remains, there originally should be some mechanisms set up so I’m just… casually guessing!”
As she was speaking, her tone became firmer and firmer.
Anyway, she had already followed everything according to the ghost masked man’s plot to lure Huang Yueli to this underground palace and following this, she would soon be able to see this little slut die!
Now, all she needed to do was to clench on the fact that she didn’t know anything at all, anyway Huang Yueli didn’t have any evidence.
Meng Wan’er believed that she had already gotten away and she wasn’t feeling very terrified anymore so she took a deep breath and said, “Young Miss Bai, this matter is all my fault. My curiosity got the better of me hence causing you all to fall into this place. But if you insist to say that I did it on purpose, then you’re really thinking too much! Moreover speaking, even if you kill me now it’s also useless, it’s best to think of a way to get out first?”
Huang Yueli’s gaze turned profound when she heard that and spoke out with a smile that wasn’t quite like a smile, “What you say, does sound logical…”
Meng Wan’er heaved a sigh of relief, “That’s right, I was just saying, it’s important to know what’s slight or important, urgent or non-urgent so let’s hurry and leave this place. Later on I’ll apologize to you all after we leave here!”
Huang Yueli seemed as though she was convinced as she nodded and got up, “How about this, everyone rest for a while now and I’ll go take a look at what situation this secret room is in!”
Saying that, she turned around and was about to leave.
Li Moying immediately got up and followed behind her, “Li’er, I’ll accompany you.”
Huang Yueli took a look at him and didn’t reject.
Huang Yueli used the True Phoenix Fire to illuminate the room and brought Li Moying along as they walked one round along the surrounding walls of the storage room.
There was no light source in the secret room and everywhere was pitch dark but every few meters, there would be a candle holder which was used for illumination purposes. As Huang Yueli was walking round, she also lit the candleholders on the way.
She finished one round and the entire room was as bright as day time.
She finished one round but didn’t stop and took another round.
This time, she walked extremely slowly and after passing by one of the sculpted pillars in the southeast direction, she suddenly stopped.
