Chapter 765: The Smug Father And Daughter Of The Ni Family Before Their Embarrassment
The Ni family had also encountered ‘going around in circles’ on the other side of the tomb. However, they could deal with it easily without much hassle as they had the Chinese talismans with them. Besides, most of them were experienced exorcists.
However, they did not discover it as early as Helian Wei Wei did.
Ni Feng started to notice the odd situation only after their third lap around the place.
The others marveled at what Ni Feng said, complimenting how brilliant she was.
Ni Biao grinned from ear to ear after hearing all those compliments for his daughter.
These people would continue to trust and support the Ni family as long as his daughter was around.
If so, both the Sarira and the world were destined to be his.
While Ni Biao was still immersed in his thoughts, a person approached him and said with a deep voice, “Everything has been settled, Master. I took away their Chinese talismans, now they might still be stuck in place and couldn’t find their way out from there.”
“Well done!” Ni Biao finally felt relieved after being annoyed for one whole day. His eyes exhibited a brutal glance. In the tomb, losing one’s Chinese talismans connoted one’s death. Ignoring the other situations, just that going around in circles was troublesome enough. They would be forced to walk relentlessly on the same road until they died of exhaustion. They would never reach the exit. Perhaps, the creatures in the tomb would stretch out their hands from the ground and drag them into hell directly before they were fatigue!
Ni Biao could not suppress a smirk on his face as he thought about how they would be done for. One side of his mouth was lifted while the other side was stiff as a corpse, creating a creepy expression. He was unable to see his own expression but the person who was standing opposite of him was frightened, “Master! You just!”
Following the shrieks of the exorcist, everyone fixed their eyes toward them for they were taken aback.
Ni Biao frowned, “Don’t make a fuss, you better hurry up.”
The exorcists were in a daze. They shook their heads as they saw their master who showed no distinction as before. Was I wrong?
“Dad, what’s the matter?” Ni Feng paced toward Ni Biao. Her face was hidden vaguely under the veil, in addition to the swaying shadows from the torch, no one could see her appearance. To them, she seemed like a weak and soft person.
She was full of spiritual aura, so every exorcist could feel a sense of serenity when she walked by.
Ni Biao had always been patient to his beloved daughter, so he just beat around the bush, “Nothing happened, just the underlings are being ignorant and like creating nuisances. Feng, since you are not feeling well, you shall not be worried about me too much. You need to know your limits for the sake of us so we are able to reach the main coffin as soon as possible. Do you understand?”
What Ni Biao said was not meant for Ni Feng, but the other exorcists.
He wanted to let them know that what they had achieved so far were all thanks to his beloved daughter.
Ni Feng coughed a few times and shook her hand upon hearing what her father said, “I’m alright, father. It is dangerous to stay in the tomb, we should reach the main coffin as soon as possible,” She sounded gentle yet sluggish.
“Sigh, you are way too concerned with the living things in the world,” Ni Biao looked benevolently at Ni Feng, his eyes were filled with sympathy.
As she spoke, she was even panting, “This is my duty as the Phoenix Girl.”
The others adored and worshipped the Ni family, even more, when they saw this, even the doubts they had just now were eliminated. They constantly praised Ni Feng for her kindness.
Nobody noticed that her lips were moving as if she was chewing something while her head was bent down.
As for Ni Biao, he seemed to be tired at the moment. He shook his head due to the sudden drowsiness.
“Master?” The exorcist tasked with stealing the Chinese talismans from Helian Wei Wei was still looking at him. He asked worriedly upon seeing Ni Biao’s dilated pupils, “Are you alright?”
Ni Biao came to his senses, feeling more conscious as he replied, “It’s nothing. By the way, why did you shout just now? Was there anything on my face?”
The exorcist hesitated for a moment and shook his head. “No, it doesn’t matter, I must have seen wrongly.” I cannot tell Master that he seems to be haunted directly, can I? This is impossible, master’s exorcism is the most powerful in Exorcist City. There are probably no spirits that can approach him.
The exorcist thought that he must be hallucinating as it was likely to be unable to think straight after going around in circles.
But no matter how he comforted himself, there was always a voice in his heart, asking, Was it really just an illusion even though it looked so real?
“We’ve reached the exit!”
Someone shouted upon looking at the faint light ahead.
Old Li looked at him, indicating him to lower his voice. After that, Old Li took the lead to exit the tunnel of the cave. He raised his torch to light up all the oil lamps on the ground.
Just then, a loud bang resonated in the air!
The whole tomb was lit up and the enormous mural came into sight at once.
It appeared like entering a magnificent palace with gold and jewelry encased everywhere on the stone wall. Everything was just too majestic to describe with words.
The exorcists could not help wanting to take a step forward the moment they saw all those shiny jewelry, perhaps because of humans’ natural desire for wealth.
“Don’t move,” Old Li shouted suddenly to stop them from moving. He pointed upward and said, “Look, what are those?”
The exorcists looked up at where Old Li pointed. A chill ran down their spines when they saw it.
In place of ornaments and decorates, corpses were hung all over the ceiling.
The most terrifying thing was that Guo Zi and Xiao Zi who died at the entrance while entering the tomb with them were hung up there too!
Everyone was scared and fearful when they saw the corpses.
Why are they here?
How did they come in?
Are they moving corpses?
However, which moving corpse will hang itself on the beamed ceiling?
Besides, their postures were particularly strange, just like puppets being controlled by a puppeteer. Their limbs and joints sagged unnaturally, moving back and forth. They were glancing at the people below with spooky smiles as if they would wake up any time and charge toward the people below!
The scariest part was that all the exorcists were wondering how on earth did these two go up there?
They did not see both of them along the way. Where were their dead bodies before this?
They must have been really quick, at least more flexible than dead bodies.
Everyone knew that moving corpses that were just deceased would walk very slow even if they could stand up. So, they should have straggled far behind.
But now, these two people were actually in front of them!
