Chapter 258: Are You? (Part One)
Fei switched to Paladin Mode, and the golden aura covered his surroundings.
This aura contained holy power, and it was the best counter for this kind of gloomy energy. All the chilling energy disappeared like snow in the hot summer day as it touched the aura. Fei used the skill [Prayer], and the golden light around his body intensified. The entire underground hall was lit up; it was even brighter than the gold mountains. Under the cleansing of this power, the atmosphere of the hall turned peaceful and calm.
After all of this, Fei switched back to Sorceress Mode.
Then, Fei sensed an even stronger call; he sensed a familiar and intimate feeling as if his loved one was calling for him. This calling came from the white bones in the deep pit.
Fei didn’t hesitate and jumped into the pit of bones.
This scene wasn’t really too much for Fei. In Diablo World, he had been through a lot of bloody and terrifying places. Compared to those living hells, the chilling white bones were way cuter.
Fei broke numerous bones as he landed on them.
These bones seemed to have been around for about ten years. From the way the bones corroded, Fei could tell that they weren’t high-level warriors when they were alive. The bones were really fragile, and they were only able to keep their original shape because there was no wind in this space.
As soon as Fei broke the bones, white bone dust shoot into the air.
“Huh? There are some tools?”
Fei found some unexpected items with the help of the light from the fire.
Under the bones, there were complete sets of building tools like shovels and spades. There were also some metal buttons that looked like they were on some clothes.
Fei immediately knew who these bones belonged to – the slaves and craftsmen who participated in the building of this underground project. After this hall was completed, they were all killed off to keep the secret.
A bunch of poor souls.
After Fei reached the bottom of the pit, the calling he was sensing grew even stronger. He realized that this calling was behind one of the sidewalls of the pit.
When he wanted to get close to that sidewall and take a better look, his eyes froze. About half a meter away from that sidewall, there was a pair of perfect footprints on the bones.
The footprints were about 30 centimeters long, and they were really clean compared with the messy bones and bone fragments around them. Fei squatted down to take a better look, and he was sure that the footprints were facing towards the wall; they were formed from someone stepping here for numerous times.
“How could it be? What kind of person would appear here and step at the same location?”
Fei thought as he stood up and stepped into the footprint.
Tink! …… Crack!
It was a really light metal spring sounding noise. A series of gears gliding noises followed after. Fei felt a light shake under his feet, and the stone wall in front of him had five silver dots appeared on it. Those five silver dots quickly danced on the wall and drew some pretty curvatures. Those curvatures soon formed a magic array that looked like a stone gate.
Before Fei could react, the magic array started to operate on its own.
A sensation that Fei was really familiar with appeared as a light buzz sounded. A sky-blue oval shaped teleport portal that was two meters tall appeared in front of Fei.
Fei was stunned.
He was too familiar with this scene.
It was a portal.
It was the portal that [Town Teleport Scroll] would create in Diablo World.
Same magic surge, same magic color, same oval shape, same strange appeal…… Fei was completely sure that this was a teleport portal, but he didn’t know where this portal led to.
Fei found that the situation was getting more and more interesting.
He thought that he was taking revenge for his loyal subjects who were suppressed and killed by Blood-Edge, but things went on a tangent.
