My Doomsday Territory - Chapter 25
The four team members followed Wang Zhou to the villa area. As they were walking all the way to a relatively remote villa, they were full of doubts in their mind.
The corpses and messy clutter in the villa have all been cleared away, making the villa appear relatively empty. The walls, however, were still damaged in several places, giving people a sense of dilapidation and depression.
The four team members felt something was amiss. But before they had any time to react, they arrived at the villa. As soon as they walked in, they felt a strong pressure. It was as if this pressure was weighing heavily on their chests, leaving them completely breathless.
In addition to Wang Zhou, the person who led them to the villa, two others have also joined them.
One was a young man dressed in casual clothes.
The other is like a towering steel-like strong man with an open tank top that looked like a tight fit on him.
The strong man stood behind the young man with a horrifying bloody intent scattered around. They could feel the strong pressure coming from this towering steel-like strong man.
What the hell was going on?
They don’t understand. They are just refugee survivors who have come here in order to seek shelter!
Even if refugee survivors aren’t welcome in ordinary shelters, they won’t make a big scene out of them just visiting, right? Besides, there are two awakened ones among their group. No matter which shelters they arrive at, doors will always open up and welcome them inside.
But something wasn’t right.
The young man in casual clothes before them held his hands behind his back, glanced over and said to them: “Tell me, what’s your purpose in sneaking in here?”
Each pupil of the four team members slightly shrank. They didn’t know where exactly their flaw was exposed…
The eldest of the four team members gave a flattering expression and said: “Elder Brother, we were originally survivors from Nanling Mountains hiding in town. When we went outside, we happen to find a sign leading to your shelter. We just want to seek asylum. We have no other purpose.”
His heart felt a little uneasy. But he was also sure their missing team had something to do with this shelter…
Of course, this would, in turn, cause the shelter to be more vigilant towards foreign survivors.
Just like before, the boss didn’t feel like they revealed any flaws.
They are survivors who have travelled through the wilds. So, they disguised themselves as such and acted as such.
He felt that the shelter might actually not be suspicious of them but was only on guard and making a routine check. Through the oppression of this superior baleful Qi, their minds were quite shaken. If they were questioned again, it would be more than likely someone would carelessly reveal the truth.
The leader of the team was thankful the four of them had undergone some training, and all of them were still determined not to reveal any flaws.
In this way, they should definitely be safe.
So following this line of thought, the boss kept up his flattering appearances, only to find that the person opposite to him still had a deadpan expression.
It’s as if they didn’t care how they responded.
He listened to Tang Yu continue to say: “Of course, it doesn’t matter whether you want to say it or not. In fact, I know exactly who you are. What I want to know now is why Lin Wei had sent you over here?”
“Well, anyway, you have the right to remain silent and also remain silent to the grave.” Tang Yu spreads out his hands and continued: “After killing so many people, I don’t care about adding a few more bodies.”
The eldest brother is a tall and burly man. This already made it very difficult for him to pretend to give a flattering appearance. At this moment, his flattering smile became somewhat stiff.
Who is Lin Wei? Of course, they certainly know Lin Wei. This is the boss of their boss, the biggest boss behind the scenes.
However, in his mind, they still felt they could muddle through this ordeal by sheer luck. There was no evidence in the end. This was all just speculation and the two men probably wouldn’t start fighting because of just this, right…?
Though the boss wasn’t sure in his mind, he still insists on his act.
As for starting a fight or running away, this thought never crossed his mind. The pressure from the towering strong man opposite to them alone caused their movements to become stiff. If they were to start fighting, he’s afraid none of them would be able to make a single move before they were all killed.
This is a master far beyond anyone in their team can match.
At this time, a young man with glasses came out and gave a wry smile before saying: “I’ll tell you.”
“Third, you…” The boss has an expression of disbelief.
The bespectacled young man looked helplessly at his team members and said: “Eldest, Second and Fifth, is it still meaningful to insist on keeping up this act? The relationship between the boss and us is only an employer-employee relationship. They sent us to investigate this matter, and we did our best. We sacrificed two people for this task. We don’t owe them anything let alone giving up our lives.”
Third breathed out a sigh and said: “You guys don’t actually believe you can safely leave here without saying anything, right? Don’t forget, this is the doomsday. Human life is the least valuable during these times. Besides, if we’re dead, do you think we can keep the secret forever? No, even if we die. Other teams will still be sent here from the top, and today’s outcome will still be repeated.”
This man with the glasses named Third can clearly see the situation.
After saying this, he confessed the purpose of their team’s visit to the shelter. He hadn’t concealed any details regarding their task at all.
His other team members remained silent.
When it comes to their loyalty. In fact, they weren’t loyal at all.
In the beginning, their insistence was based on thinking this was all just a fluke. In their minds, they held onto the possibility through sheer luck for not being discovered.
Even though Tang Yu later spoke Lin Wei’s name out loud, they still thought he might just want to interrogate them.
If they responded, it’s equivalent to admitting one’s guilt after being caught sneaking into the shelter. Even if they don’t die, at least a layer of skin will be peeled off.
Without admitting guilt, it’s possible they can muddle through by insisting they are refugee survivors…
At least that’s what they think.
At first, the young man with glasses thought the same. But eventually, he knew better.
The words from the other party weren’t just a bluff. Even if there is no evidence, even if this was all based on just speculation. In an age when killing people was as simple as strangling chickens, there was no need to hesitate to kill them at all.
Only by frankly confessing can they gain a chance at survival.
However, there are still doubts within the mind of this young man with glasses. In the end, where exactly did they reveal a flaw?
The team trying to sneak into the shelter didn’t know much.
The understanding of Lin Wei and his force is even less than the information extracted from Han Jing and the other people from last time.
Tang Yu also understands this. Han Jing is Lin Wei’s confidant, and the team from just now may very well have been a small team under Lin Wei.
This team, of course, doesn’t know such confidential information as the source crystal mine. The task they have been assigned to is investigating the disappearance of Han Jing’s team.
However, this isn’t the only team that has been dispatched to perform this task.
According to information received from the young man with glasses. At least seven or eight such teams were sent to different locations to investigate, and their team was responsible for investigating this area.
“In this way, the disappearance of their team will inevitably attract the attention of Lin Wei. Anyway, my shelter will enter Lin Wei’s line of sight sooner or later.”
In fact, such a situation had already been expected.
The people from Han Jing’s team have already died in a variety of ways. But as long as Lin Wei pays enough attention to the source crystal mine. It’s only a matter of time before they discover the truth after continuously sending more people to investigate.
But for Tang Yu, time is of the essence.
Although Lin Wei is a senior member of Lindong Shelter, he is unable to master the army. But he has numerous awakened ones under the palm of his hand. At present, Lin Wei’s forces are definitely stronger than his territory. However, it’s extremely difficult to convey information during the doomsday. The speedy transfer of information isn’t a matter of prestige.
The previous team was caught by Tang Yu. When the news of that team’s disappearance was finally sent back to Lin Wei. The task was then assigned to investigators who were sent to investigate the…
The point is, it takes a lot of time to go back and forth and it will take a long time to reach a conclusion.
Taking advantage of this time, Tang Yu is confident he can raise the development of his territory to a higher level.
These team members shouldn’t be wasted either. They can be sent to work as miners. Awakened ones as labourers have a much higher labour efficiency than ordinary people.
Tang Yu felt heartache when thinking of Han Jing and his dead team members. Wouldn’t a third order awakened one labourer be so awesome?
However, he also understood it was still too dangerous to let Han Jing’s team work as miners. He is the Great Lord Tang and wanted to take the safest route, these unstable waves were too unbearable to endure.
