Chapter 83: Exciting Future
In theory, if one had the strength of a 100-story tower climber and could control ones speed well in a speed trap, one could escape.
One should not rush.
It was not difficult to run several kilometers.
However, one would have a problem if one rushed through it.
Running at a steady pace and sprinting at full speed required different types of physical strength.
Wang Wen had learned from his mistakes, so he had been jogging at a steady pace.
Yao Shi, the young man who had never experienced that before, rushed through it.
He had been sprinting at full throttle.
After running the speed shifting mechanism for the third time, he almost spat out feces.
Zhu Xingguo stood at the finish line, worriedly looking at Yao Shi, who was foaming at the mouth.
He then dragged Yao Shis collar into the entrance.
The twenty-fifth floor.
The mechanism for changing speeds
“I can not run anymore,” Yao Shi stretched and waved his hands at the others.
“I have exited the Tower!”
He silently applied to leave the tower and began counting the seconds as soon as he said that.
“Why were you giving up now” Zhu Xingguo asked.
The safest part was the speed-shifting mechanism.
You will be at a disadvantage if you quit now!”
“Protect my a$$!” Yao Shi cursed, pointing to the wound on his back, “I will be gone if I make another run!” How unlucky can you be to fall into such a trap Run at your own pace.
I am not going to entertain you!
When Wang Wen heard that, he turned to face him and said, “I wont force you to stay if you want to back out.
Just dont regret your decision later.”
“Regret Ha!” Yao Shis heart was racing.
“I will not regret it even if you guys go up to the 300th floor this time,” he said.
Then, he vanished from the tower with a flash of white light.
When he saw Yao Shi leave without hesitation, he remembered the last sentence he had said.
Zhu Xingguo appeared embarrassed.
“Captain, dont take it personally.”
Wang Wen shook his head and smiled without saying anything.
Ren Rourou pouted angrily and said, “I didnt expect that of him.
Fortunately, we dont know him too well.
We only met on the 20th floor.”
Wang Wen smiled and said, “Dont say that.
Someone dropped out of my team.
I should have just kept my mouth shut.”
Zhu Xingguo shook his head and laughed along with Ren Ruoruo.
The sound of the killing mechanism was behind them.
“Come, Ill take back my things,” Wang Wen said to Zhu Xingguo, stretching out his hand.
Zhu Xingguo wished to be courteous.
“Stop thinking about it,” Wang Wen said.
“From now on, we will have to rely on our own abilities.
I cant help you, and I dont wish to burden you.”
Zhu Xingguo felt suffocated.
He grabbed Wang Wens backpack solemnly, not knowing what to say.
He pondered for a while.
He abruptly turned around like a bull and dashed toward the finish line.
He did not overthink anything.
He might as well not say anything if he had nothing to say.
He had no choice!
Wang Wen was taken aback.
After two lifetimes, it was the first time he had encountered such a situation.
When he showed that he was serious about something, most people would either shirk their responsibilities or return the favor.
Or they would express their loyalty in a determined tone, making him feel helpless and accept it.
How could such a person not say anything
Wang Wen extended his hand to Zhu Xingguos back and said, “Hey.”
The man increased his speed and rushed forward without looking back.
He appeared to be terrified of being apprehended and robbed.
Wang Wen was taken aback and speechless.
Ren Ruoruo always saw Wang Wen as confident and unfazed.
She had never seen him caught off guard before.
She could not stop herself from laughing.
In her heart, she sighed.
So it was good rather than evil that could breach the team leaders defense.
She suddenly felt an inexplicable sense of excitement for the team.
There was a cute bull, as well as a cute team leader.
Was the future not exciting
The killing mechanism was triggered.
They began to run with their own thoughts.
It was unclear whether that was because they were one fewer person or because they were in a good mood.
After completing the one-kilometer run, they thought it was not a difficult task to finish.
It was as if their bodies potential had been realized.
Their stamina increased rather than decreased as they jogged at a constant pace, recovering bit by bit.
Ren Ruoruo, who was near the finish line, noticed Wang Wen and Zhu Xingguo squabbling over the backpacks.
She smiled, knowing she could run a few more kilometers.
‘So, come on, people!
‘Bring it on, speed mechanism!
‘Take me to the 30th floor!
They rubbed their fists together and took a confident step onto the next floor.
Zhu Xingguo, who was taking advantage of the opportunity to stretch his legs and regain strength, was taken aback when he discovered the scene on the 26th floor.
The scene had shifted.
It felt like the speed mechanism was already second nature to them.
However, they saw a completely enclosed space.
It was a time-limited secret room.
Maybe losing one team member meant they triggered an arbitrary rule.
They no longer had the speed mechanism.
Instead, they had a time-limited secret room that required scientific decryption.
That was fantastic news!
Zhu Xingguo and Ren Ruoruo excitedly clapped their hands.
They could see a sense of relief in each others eyes after the tension.
After the two had finished celebrating, they turned around and realized they could no longer understand the captains expression.
What was the significance of that
Why were his brows furrowed
Could there be a problem with that time-limited secret room
When they saw Wang Wens furrowed brows, they felt their hearts sink again.
Zhu Xingguo bore the same solemn expression on Ren Ruoruos face.
When they first met on the 20th floor, he knew that Mi Lailai was more interested in spiritual power, while Ren Ruoruo was more interested in scientific decryption.
At that point, she would be stronger than him.
Even the captain, who had always been unfazed, frowned.
Only Ren Ruoruo could help him.
She was not a brute, so she would never touch it carelessly.
Ren Ruoruo nodded as she met Zhu Xingguos gaze.
She was confident in her skills in scientific decryption.
That skill was the only thing that could possibly help the captain.
Her gaze moved across the secret room.
She did not act hastily due to the captains frown.
What was so strange about that level
How could she not detect anything weird about it
Those were the regular text messages.
What was the issue
Ren Ruoruos brow was dripping with sweat.
Every detail in the secret room was carefully remembered and analyzed by her.
She was almost certain that with her powerful scientific decryption ability and years of experience in that field, she could decipher the entire time-limited secret room in her mind.
However, she could not figure out what was wrong.
She could not think of anything that would make such a powerful captain frown.
She was very worried.
Her mind was on fire.
The sweat on her brow was building, but she did not dare wipe it away with her hands for fear of becoming distracted.
Zhu Xingguo was so terrified when he saw her stance that he did not dare to breathe loudly.
Unconsciously, his hands and feet began to tremble.
‘It is over, it is over, he moaned in his heart.
A captain who appeared to be immortal and a 100th-floor expert in scientific decryption.
Both looked worried.
‘I could die here today!
After half a minute, Wang Wen shifted.
He crouched in the corner, silently reading and deciphering the text messages.
Ren Ruoruos head was filled with smoke.
Her entire body shook, and her eyes seemed to shine brightly.
She flipped through all of the details of the secret room, inch by inch.
A fishy odor rose from her throat as she grunted.
A smear of blood escaped from the corner of her mouth.
Ren Ruoruo, who had stumbled backward, became pale with fear and reached out to help Zhu Xingguo.
However, he was unaware that his legs had also become soft.
They fell to the ground together.
“I just exceeded my strength and entered the Broken Might level for a split second,” Ren Ruoruo said weakly.
“I opened the entire secret room blindly, but I discovered nothing unusual.
I am worthless.
Im afraid I cant assist you, Captain.
The rest is entirely up to you.”
Zhu Xingguo turned to face the scowling captain, then Ren Ruoruo.
He felt as if his heart had been ripped open.
