15 minutes is just like a half-time rest. When the train stopped, the 2 teams got off the train and continued chatting. On the other hand, the screams from the newcomers also arrived as scheduled.

"What the hell is this place? Who are you? What do you want to do?"

"I want to call the police! I want to call the police!"


Familiar recipe, familiar taste.

However, Du Feng in Zhang Zhang's team specializes in giving explanations to the newcomers. Generally, after arriving in the mission world, as the intermediate team, she will give basic explanations to the newcomers. This action can be regarded as doing a good deed and accumulating some blessings for oneself, a prayer for a smooth return home. But teams like Black Scorpion are an exception. Du Feng explained quickly and briefly. Also this time, the newcomers may have better luck. There are 6 people in total, and all managed to go out with their flyers. They got out of the station and everyone looked dumbfounded when they saw the surrounding environment.

They are surrounded by lush greenery and lush vegetation. No matter which direction one goes, they can't see anything but green.

A continuous mountain.

"What the hell is this place?" The newcomers murmured in disbelief, turning back to look at the train, which had already disappeared. There are no tracks on the ground as if the old model train had never been there.

Among the newcomers, a man with ‘waxed hair and powdered face’[1] stood up. His hair is combed neatly to the back, and he is wearing cropped suit pants and a white-collar shirt like an elite. With that smile on his face, Lou Fan thinks the man should be the kind of very smooth/sleek guy.

"Everyone, where are we? I was on the high-speed train 10 minutes ago, so why did I get here all of a sudden..." The man couldn’t hold onto the smile on his face and he became very sad.

Another young man who looked like a college student has just recovered from the shock and asked, "Have we transmigrated somewhere? I often see this situation in novels!"

Zhang Zhang called Du Feng, and Du Feng greeted the newcomer, "You guys, come here with me. I will give you a brief introduction first."

After driving away the newcomer, Zhang Zhang looked around, looking a little different from the previous chatting mode. As expected of someone at Level 8, he quickly entered the state.

"Team leader Qin, let's take a rest on the spot and explore the surrounding situation, how about it?" Zhang Zhang said to Qin Tan in a negotiating tone.

Qin Tan has also observed the surrounding area at this moment, and said, "Find a dry flat ground to rest, and then spread out radially to explore."

Zhang Zhang agreed, "Okay." He said to his team members, "Heard what Team leader Qin said, find a place to camp, and don't go too far."

The remaining Level 8 members agreed and started looking for a resting place in a well-trained manner. Lou Fan and his team members also walked around to check the area. He could see that Zhang Zhang had already decided what to do, but he still discussed with Qin Tan symbolically. This attitude made people feel good.

After finding an open space, Du Feng on the other side has also finished explaining to the newcomers. Among them, the 2 men who spoke at the beginning were Han Yu, a real estate agent, and Jiang Yiran, a college student. There’s also Qi Shan, a taciturn girl. The 3 newcomers followed Du Feng to the resting spot. The other 3 newcomers still looked at the crowd with suspicion and sat down to rest a little further away.

Chen Shuyang and Du Feng stayed where they were, while the others divided into 4 groups to start exploring in four directions. They set a timing to return to the same place 2 hours later.

"Brother Lou, I'll go with you." Wen Lang smiled and ran to Lou Fan's side.

Lou Fan shook his head and ruthlessly expressed his disdain, "I want to team up with Qin Tan. You and Jiang Dong will team up. Didn’t you two cooperate well together last time?"

Wen Lang: "Who cooperated well with him?"

Jiang Dong: "I don't despise him."

Wen Lang: "..." Who the hell dislikes who!

"Come on," Lou Fan no longer chat with Wen Lang and said, "Pay attention to safety and be careful."

Wen Lang bowed his head and said yes. Then, like a little daughter-in-law, he followed behind Jiang Dong.

"Do you think Wen Lang looks like a little daughter-in-law?" Lou Fan said with a smile.

Qin Tan stared at Lou Fan deeply before saying, "En, I think it's quite similar."

Lou Fan: "..." Somehow, that sounded wrong.

Lou Fan and Qin Tan chose a random direction to go. Probably because the direction is not chosen properly, they encountered a cliff after walking forward for some time. So, they had no choice but to go back and wait for news from the other 3 teams.

Back at the resting place, Chen Shuyang and Jiang Yiran are talking while Qi Shan is watching them and listening carefully. Han Yu, on the other hand, squatted beside Du Feng and said something with a smile. Du Feng looked impatient as if she is about to get angry. Seeing someone coming back, Han Yu immediately stood up. When they got close, he asked eagerly, "Have you found anything? What's over there?"

With this tone and attitude, Lou Fan didn't even bother to look at Han Yu and sat directly next to Chen Shuyang. Qin Tan ignored Han Yu and took out the compass from his bag to check directions.

Being ignored, Han Yu felt like he is not given faces, and threw an unkind look at Qin Tan and Lou Fan. After a while, a smile appeared on the corner of his mouth. He walked into Chen Shuyang's side and sat down as if wanting to join the conversation.

"Hello, my name is Han Yu. What is your spirit weapon? Mine is a comb, and I don't know what it can be used for."

But Chen Shuyang and Jiang Yiran are chatting with each other while Qi Shan kept silent. Lou Fan unscrewed a bottle of water and drank it while listening to Chen Shuyang. Han Yu's face is comparable to a city wall. He turned directly to Lou Fan and asked, "This handsome guy, can you tell me about the spirit weapon?"

Lou Fan is about to speak when Qin Tan walked behind him and said coldly, "We've already told you the basic information. If you're willing to help out, go scout the area. Don't just hang around here."

Qin Tan is tall and has a body with tight muscles. Facing his cold eyes, Han Yu stared at him blankly, not daring to speak anymore. He got up and walked to the other side to sit. However, seeing Qin Tan squatting down and talking to Lou Fan with gentle eyes, unlike the vicious look he had just now, Han Yu tsk-ed, "Pei, damn ghey bastard."

2 hours later, the other 3 groups all came back. Only Wen Lang’s group said their path to the north is heading to the mountain, while the other 2 groups couldn’t proceed forward like Lou Fan’s case. After a discussion, everyone packed up and decided to head north.

"If anyone wants to stay, we will leave some food and water, and we will return to the train in 10 days. If you want to go with us, you must be obedient along the way. If you don't follow the rules, don't blame us for being rude." Zhang Zhang said to the 6 newcomers with a serious expression.

Zhang Zhang’s figure is tall and strong, and he looked very intimidating when serious. The newcomers looked at each other, and in the end, they all decided to go with the crowd. Unexpectedly, no one chose to stay.

The vegetation on Mount Gui is not tall, and the tallest tree is only 5 or 6 meters, which is a little different from how Lou Fan imagined the trees in the heavenly ground should be, which is tens of meters high. This mountain is considered to be quite flat, which one couldn’t feel that they are climbing. Instead, it feels like walking up a small dirt slope.

Lou Fan carried a bow on his back and a large quiver around his waist, which contained nearly 30 phoenix feather arrows. Because this time the mission is in the wild, he prepared some more arrows. There are two daggers on his body and a hidden arrow on his wrist. Lou Fan didn't carry the whip with him but wore the fish scale suit. He also brought a few radish flowers and the talisman that he had just gotten, plus the food in his backpack. His points are almost fully exchanged, and all his belongings are being carried by him right now.

It is only 3.00 pm and the sky is bright. However, both teams walked very cautiously. Han Yu whispered disdainfully, "Tsk, making such a nervous look trying to scare someone? This is a deserted wilderness without a single ghost around, do they need to be so exaggerated?"

Qi Shan glanced at Han Yu sideways, then turned around and continued to follow. With her long bangs down, no one could see her expression at all.

"Chen Shuyang, is spirit weapon really that powerful?" Jiang Yiran discussed with Chen Shuyang excitedly, holding an umbrella in his hand, the spirit weapon he brought. "How do I use this umbrella? Poke someone with it?"

Chen Shuyang didn't know whether to laugh or cry. It is sure annoying to meet a chatterbox this time, "You can try poking with it first, and then go back to Lazuli to study the rest. I believe that you can definitely be amazing."

Jiang Yiran took it for granted and said, "That is necessary. Since I am the selected child, there must be a time to use my strength."

Chen Shuyang looked helpless. This silly boy, really not sure whether to call him stupid or naive.

Even if the slope is flat, after climbing for 3 hours, everyone still feels the loss of physical strength.

"Lou Fan, save your energy and slow down your breathing as much as possible." Qin Tan sensed something is wrong, although it was subtle.

Lou Fan also noticed something, "Is there something wrong with gravity? I'm feeling pretty tired."

Qin Tan nodded and repeated the caution to the rest of his team members. They gathered together, and he said, "Compared with the normal world, walking here is a little more strenuous as the gravity is heavier. Remember to conserve your strength and slow down your movements."

All five of them felt tired. Not mentioning the Level 8 team, the 6 newcomers are so tired that they sat on the ground and couldn't get up. But Zhang Zhang and his team members are also very tired. He walked over and said, "Team leader Qin, it looks like it's going to get dark. How about we set up camp?"

Qin Tan has the same thought and said, "Yes, find a place to camp. It's hard to move around in the dark, so let’s be careful on the first day."

Though Zhang Zhang said ‘camp’, the Level 8 team only go to a resting spot, picked up dry wood, and raised a campfire. While Lou Fan and the others took out 3 tents and set them up, which could still be connected, and built a ‘mansion’.

Zhang Zhang is stunned for a moment, "Brother, aren’t you guys enjoying this a bit too much? Are you here on a mission or vacation? ‘Comparing oneself to another is sure infuriating’!"

Hearing that, Qin Tan had a smile on his face. This thing is what Lou Fan is determined to bring, and the rest of the team didn't care. But at this moment, being so envied by others makes him feel nice inside.

"Team leader Zhang!" Lou Fan patted Zhang Zhang's shoulder and sighed, "Task needs to be done for sure but rest is also very important. You see, in this wilderness, if there is no tent, there is no sense of security, right? Let me tell you, there is another tent in the exchange machine that is very good, and I strongly recommend it to you."

As if Zhang Zhang had stumbled to a large-scale promotion event, he looked at Lou Fan in confusion. What is this kind of behavior? Say it, is Lazuli going to give you a commission?

Qin Tan pulled Lou Fan back with a doting face, "Team leader Zhang, Lou Fan pays more attention to the quality of life, please forgive him."

Zhang Zhang suddenly slapped his own thigh, "Alright, Brother Lou, when we returned, please recommend a good set for me. I also wanted to enjoy life."

Lou Fan smiled and said, "No problem, count on me. I’ll make sure you are satisfied."

Crowd: ...
