Global Game: AFK In The Zombie Apocalypse Game - Chapter 1452
1452 Going Deep
Three hours later, in the underground shady line, Fang Heng met up with the backup team led by Gano and returned to the shady line with the large soul crystal. After entering the shady line, they came to the rock wall they had encountered before.
It took them another three hours.
This was on the basis that the passage below the shady line had already been cleared once. Otherwise, the team would have to spend even more time.
“They are behind the cave.”
Gano carefully glanced at Fang Heng, who was wearing a human skin mask and pointed to the right side of the rock wall in front of him. He explained to Fang Heng in a low voice, “There’s a mark at the entrance. Only a special runestone can open the passage.”
Fang Heng had already changed into the attire of a normal necromancer. He wore a hood and disguised himself as an expert invited by Gano.
Gano was the only one on the team who knew Fang Heng’s true identity.
“Hmm, where’s the runestone? Open the door.”
Gano shrunk his neck and waved his hand.
Behind them, a white-haired middle-aged man walked out of the team and carefully walked to the side of the rock wall, embedding a runestone into the wall.
“Ka ka ka…”
The rock wall made a slight sound and moved to the right, revealing a long passage behind it.
The depths of the passage were pitch black, and one could not see the end with the naked eye.
Fang Heng narrowed his eyes.
The moment the passage entrance opened, a holy aura leaked out from behind.
Strange, why was there a holy aura?
Moreover, the strength of this holy power was much stronger than that of the holy weapon.
While Fang Heng was still thinking, the team had already begun to move forward.
Gano saw the hesitant Fang Heng standing at the side and walked to the side, whispering, “Fang Heng, we can go now.”
“Yes.” Fang Heng hummed softly and asked, “Can you feel it?”
“Oh, you mean that.”
Gano quickly reacted.
The holy aura that seeped out from the depths of the passage was very strong. Even those who practiced necromancy could sense it, but it was not as strong as Fang Heng’s perception.
“The holy aura is coming from the end of the passage. I suspect that it might be related to the source of the shady line. It was there when we first came in. As for the deepest part, we haven’t gone in yet, so we don’t know the exact situation inside.”
Gano explained in a low voice, “The Chamber of Commerce’s team has already entered the front. They should still be blocked in front of the elite giant creatures. We’ll go and meet them now.”
Fang Heng agreed and suppressed the doubts in his heart. He continued to move forward with the team.
The dark blue soul fire illuminated the path ahead.
At first, the passage was wide, but it became narrower and narrower at the back. It was obvious that it was man-made.
“When we first came here, the passage had already completely collapsed. It took us less than half a year to open the passage.”
Due to the influence of the shady line aura, the rocks on both sides of the rock wall were extremely solid. It would take quite some time to dig such a long passage.
After walking for more than 20 minutes, the exit finally appeared in front of the passage.
There was a group of people gathered outside the exit, discussing something in low voices.
Fang Heng signaled Gano with his eyes, then secretly retreated and blended into the crowd.
Gano took a deep breath and pretended that nothing had happened. He signaled for the team behind him to follow.
“Gano, why are you so slow?”
Outside the passage passageway, the Culodi Trading Company and many other Chamber of Commerce teams had been waiting for a long time.
The few people in charge of the trading firm were dissatisfied. Seeing Gano arrive late, their tone became more accusatory.
Gano felt even angrier when he heard this, and he unconsciously clenched his fists.
Who was the one who told him that Fang Heng had been staying in the depths of Frost Hell?
If it wasn’t for the fact that the information given by this group of idiots was wrong, how could he have been so miserably tricked by Fang Heng?
Now, even his life was in the hands of others!
Just as he was about to argue, he saw Yatsek standing in the crowd. The anger in Gano’s heart immediately dissipated and turned into worry and uneasiness.
Yacek was a powerful figure in the Culodi Trading Company and had great prestige in the Chamber of Commerce.
Just like before, he was in charge of leading the shady line this time.
Gano walked forward uneasily, his expression somewhat unnatural. With a fawning smile, he explained, “Elder, the people from the Ed Chamber of Commerce are not easy to deal with. We also encountered Fang Heng bringing people over to support us, which took a lot of time.”
Gano glared at the people from the Chamber of Commerce behind Yatsek and seized the opportunity to complain, “It’s you! The information you gave me is a problem! He was not in the depths of the Frost Hell! He even came to rescue the Rand Chamber of Commerce! He could even control a batch of Ice Bones. I almost died there!”
The people from the Chamber of Commerce were naturally not convinced.
From the moment they entered Frost Hell, they had sent people to keep an eye on Fang Heng from afar. They were very sure that Fang Heng was in the depths of the Frost Hell.
He had come to rescue the Rand Chamber of Commerce?
Could it be that Fang Heng had the ability to clone himself?
“Are you sure it was Fang Heng?”
“Impossible. Our people have been watching him. It’s impossible for him to bring people over to support them.”
The people from the Chamber of Commerce began to mock him in a few words, “Could it be that you’re deliberately finding an excuse to push the blame on us?”
Gano’s eyes widened as he tried to defend himself, “I saw Fang Heng with my own eyes. How could there be…”
“Alright! Shut up!”
When Yatsek heard the noise, his expression turned cold. He looked at Gano coldly and asked, “So you failed?”
“Not really. Fortunately, our reinforcements arrived in time and we managed to obtain the soul crystals. However, the Rand Chamber of Commerce people took advantage of the situation to create havoc, and we lost more than half of our men.”
Gano gestured with his hand.
The dozen or so members of the team slowly pushed up the huge box containing the soul crystals and displayed it in front of everyone.
“Well done. The life and death of the Rand Chamber of Commerce is not important. As long as you get the soul crystal, your mission will be completed. As for why Fang Heng appeared there, we’ll talk about it when we get back.”
Yatsek waved his hand and his tone softened a little. He walked forward and signaled the guard to open the box to check.
The people from the various Chambers of Commerce also gathered around.
The box opened, revealing a huge green stone inside.
Seeing the appearance of the soul crystal, the members of the Chambers of Commerce revealed a satisfied expression.
“Let’s begin, Mr. Ambay. This soul stone should be enough, right?”
Yatsek turned his head and looked behind him.
An old man walked forward and first observed the crystal before nodding, “Perfect. With the soul stone, we can create an even stronger barrier to avoid the high-level undead creatures along the way. Give me some time and I’ll be able to complete it very quickly. I still need to borrow everyone’s mental strength.”
