Chapter 2785: New Way Out (3)

Elder Mei shook his head. “Not going to happen.”

Elder Wu said, “What’s that supposed to mean?”

Elder Mei said, “Do you know how many tunnels there are? 80,000.

“They don’t stay the same. They’re constantly changing!

Elder Mei pointed at a board in front of him. “I’ve only figured out several hundred of them so far. They’re already deep inside. How are we going to find them?

“Even I can’t find them,” Elder Mei said sternly. “I want to help you, but I can’t.”

Elder Wu had been through many crises, but he really began to panic now.

Feng Wu was the most talented kid he had ever taught!

He had only looked away for two seconds, and that kid went missing!

Elder Wu said, “If you won’t help me, I’ll do it myself!”

He marched off after that.

Elder Mei shook his head and went back to his work.

The team members looked at one another but didn’t know what to do.

Zuo Qingluan suddenly said, “I’ll take you to them.”

Everybody turned in her direction.

Zuo Qingluan said, “I’m the vice chief; helping them is my responsibility. Moreover, I’ve learned a thing or two from Elder Mei. Follow me if you trust me.”

She began to walk away.

Sun Yu and the others exchanged looks before following her.

Feng Wu had no idea that the others were searching for them.

If she had known this would happen, she would have told Elder Wu beforehand.

Even the wisest person couldn’t foresee everything.

Chen Ziyun no longer hesitated.

He had followed Feng Wu all the way here, and it was impossible to go back. He had no choice but to follow her.

He could only hope she was telling the truth.

As they approached their destination, Chen Ziyun sniffed. “Why is there a funny smell?”

Feng Wu didn’t answer because she was talking to Little Phoenix.

She had a far sharper nose and had picked up the scent before Chen Ziyun did.

Given how clever she was, she had some idea of what it was.

“You didn’t bury it under…” Her tone was quite strange. “Did you?”

Little Phoenix cleared its throat.

Feng Wu’s eyes widened. “Seriously?”

Little Phoenix cleared its throat.

Feng Wu asked, “What’s the matter with you?!”

Little Phoenix said matter-of-factly, “The spirit liquid can only turn into spirit wine if it’s buried there! I’m telling the truth!”

Feng Wu didn’t want to speak to the bird.

She said, “I’m not drinking it…”

Little Phoenix said, “Well, we’ll talk about that later…”

The closer they got, the stronger the smell was.

Chen Ziyun looked at Feng Wu. “Are we going in there?”

Feng Wu nodded in resignation.

Chen Ziyun said, “Has your nose stopped working? Can’t you smell it? It stinks!”

Feng Wu said, “Of course I can.”

Chen Ziyun said, “Then why are we going there?”

Feng Wu said, “We have to.”

Chen Ziyun didn’t want to talk to her anymore. “I’m not going.”

Feng Wu said, “Don’t you want to become a Spiritual King?”

Chen Ziyun stared at her.
