Chapter 267 A Puppet

I quickly turned around and saw that the shadow on the wall was gone again.

I'm sure I didn't see it wrong just now. The so-called revered master of the pharaohs must have found us.

But I watched him carefully for a long time, and I didn't see him again. The pharaohs had already left.

This made me suspicious. Since it found us, why didn't it do it? Or to inform the pharaohs? Doesn't it want us to have a confrontation so early?

Of course, this possibility exists. After all, with my strength, the pharaohs are definitely not my opponents. I am afraid that only the reverend master that the pharaohs mentioned just now has the ability to truly fight me.

If it doesn't want to do it, then it makes sense.

I was thinking to myself when Little Fatty suddenly called me, "Hey! This way."

I turned around and saw that they were already inside, so I had to put my thoughts behind me for the time being.

The few of us reached the deepest part of the underground palace when black cloth people came out of a passageway on the left.

I quickly made a gesture to Little Fatty and the others, and they immediately understood. They hid on both sides of the passageway and waited quietly for black cloth people to come out.

As soon as he walked out of the tunnel, I covered his mouth with a hand, and Little Fatty pressed the dagger in his hand against his neck.

Then black cloth people stopped moving, quickly raised his hands and looked at us in horror.

I cleaned him up in silence, then removed the hand that was covering his mouth.

Black cloth people didn't yell, but looked at Little Fatty and me in horror.

"The pharaohs brought back a woman tonight. Where is she?" I asked, staring into his eyes.

Little Fatty also cooperated and pressed the knife in his hand against his neck.

"In... In the cell." Black cloth people was so frightened that his voice began to tremble.

"Take us there." Little Fatty took the dagger away and whispered as he grabbed black cloth people by the collar.

Of course, black cloth people didn't dare to resist. He led us in like a passageway.

It was more like a fortress, crisscrossed by corridors, with many houses and halls, but I had a bad feeling that I didn't see any black cloth people along the way.

"Wait." I yelled, then grabbed black cloth people's shoulder and said, "Don't you have any guards in here? Why can't you see anyone?"

"We never need guards here. Plus, it's late at night, and a lot of people are asleep." Black cloth people said of course.

"Then why were so many people gathered in the underground palace in front of them?" I asked with a frown.

"That was when the pharaohs summoned everyone. Many of them were actually awakened in a dream, and I was called out in a daze." Black cloth people complained.

"Why are you asking so much? Let's go! We'll leave after we save Zhang Wanru. This place is too evil to stay here for long." Little Fatty urged.

I nodded and let the man in black take us inside.

But I always felt something was wrong, but I just couldn't figure out what was wrong.

Soon the man in black led us to the door of a cell. The cell door was very strong. It was a thick iron fence that could be seen from the outside.

Naturally, the few of us saw Zhang Wanru locked up inside at a glance. She curled up and quietly squatted in a corner.

"Wanru, we're here to save you." As soon as Little Fatty saw Zhang Wanru, he shouted excitedly.

"Keep your voice down." I patted Little Fatty on the head, then looked at black cloth people and said, "Open the door."

"I don't have a key?" Black cloth people said helplessly.

I looked at the chain tied to the door, but it wasn't too thick, so it didn't take much effort, and I broke it.

As soon as the iron door opened, Little Fatty ran in. I looked around and saw that no one was there.

But Zhang Wanru, who was crouching in the corner, still didn't react and didn't know what was going on.

"Wanru, what's wrong with you?" Little Fatty shook Zhang Wanru and steadied himself anxiously, but Zhang Wanru did not speak.

Suddenly, she raised her head and smiled at us strangely.

I immediately felt something bad, but before I could react, I heard a "Bang" behind me. I turned around and saw that a new iron door had fallen from the prison door, trapping us inside.

I rushed over and grabbed the iron door with my hands in an attempt to lift it up. Dong Chenxuan was outside to help, but the iron door did not budge.

Suddenly, Dong Chenxuan snorted and sprawled on the iron door. I saw a sharp object coming out of his chest, like a blade.

Chen xuan reached in, grabbed my hand, and looked at me like that. He slid down the iron door bit by bit and finally collapsed under the door.

The knife was pulled out, and the person holding the knife was Wei standing behind Dong Chenxuan.

He might not even know who gave him the fatal blow until he died. Even if he thought of it, he wouldn't believe it!

Wei's eyes shone with a terrifying red light. At this moment, I realized that the demon blood had been in her body all the time. We were all deceived.

"Welcome to the bottomless cave, the center of the world, where miracles will be born." Wei's face was strangely twisted and his voice was demonic.

"A miracle? I've seen a lot." I stared at her and said coldly.

"Yiran, come and take a look." Little Fatty suddenly called out to me.

I turned around and saw that Zhang Wanru, who was huddled in a corner, began to twitch violently, even foaming at the mouth and rolling his eyes.

I had to run over and press Zhang Wanru to the ground with Little Fatty so that she wouldn't be able to move for a while.

Then Little Fatty took out several spells to try to break Zhang Wanru's spell, but none of them worked. In the end, I had no choice but to knock her out.

When I looked outside again, I found that Dong Chenxuan was gone. That black cloth people dragged his body away, leaving only Wei standing outside the cell door.

It seemed... That there was also a shadow that could not be seen, projected on the cold wall by the firelight of the wall lamp.

"Welcome back." The hoarse voice came over.

Wei turned to look at the tall figure on the projection wall and said softly, "Your mission has been accomplished."

With that, he reached out his left hand and gestured at the shadow on the wall. The tall figure instantly broke into a blur of light and disappeared into the brightly lit passageway.
