Doomsday Jigsaw Game - Chapter 2
At the end of the road, a jet of water spouted from the fire hydrant on the side of the road. There are two things that make Bai Wu feel very strange.
“In a place where no one lived for 700 years, there is still working equipment available. In theory, it only takes more than ten years before these things should be scrapped. It seems that this city is not without people…or without living creatures.”
“The water is cool in the weather of sixty-four degrees. The water comes from the ground, but why is the temperature so low? In such a high-temperature environment, even the groundwater should be warm.
No this kind of thinking is wrong, the remarks by the strange dialogue box is indicating that the temperature rises at a rate of 0.2 degrees per minute, which means that the initial temperature may be very low and cold, and due to the rapid change in environment. The water underneath the ground hasn’t had time to warm up. ”
Bai Wu became more and more curious about this world. This should be a world with a huge temperature difference between day and night.
The previous remarks suggested that no one has lived for 700 years, and this environment is indeed not suitable for human survival, so where do humans live?
“Forget it, I have to survive first. After five minutes of sun exposure, I will be dizzy due to dehydration.”
He already has an idea.
Since the underground water is very cold, at least in the sewers, the temperature will not be so abnormally hot.
Near the fire hydrant, Bai wu quickly found an entrance to the underground at the edge of the road.
The manhole cover has already been pried open by him.
“This place has already been explored before.”
Bai Wu didn’t think much about it, his body was almost reaching its limit, and he needed a place where the temperature was not so hot to take a rest.
After entering the sewer pipe, he could barely smell a foul smell.
The light became dim, and Bai Wu tried to focus his gaze in the immense darkness:
[Oh my old buddy, if you can’t see clearly, I can’t analyze anything. For the sake of God, can you please evolve the talent sequence 929: strengthened vision? If you can’t, you have to walk slowly in this environment, otherwise, I will kick your ass with my boots, and I swear I will do it. 】
It seems that the content of the remarks could only be seen when I can clearly see the object. In absolute darkness, It looks this ability of mine can’t help me.
What is a talent sequence?
Bai Wu did not slow down, because after being completely enveloped in darkness, the handcuffs glowed.
This is not surprising, he has already guessed that he is probably some kind of performer, and there should be a so-called nobleman watching him right now.
In that case, the handcuffs naturally have been embodied with the ability to shine at night.
The remarks were indeed correct, it is indeed best not to destroy these handcuffs prematurely.
With light, Bai Mist can see the situation in the sewer pipe more clearly.
An unknown plant thats roots are intertwined is covering all the surrounding walls. If you look closely, you can see the purple liquid flowing in the roots of the plants.
And there are the bones of some unknown creatures on the ground. Looking at the skeleton, it is a hexapod that has never been seen before.
In the middle of the aisle, there is a water source. The surface of the water is very still, and the water quality is completely different from the water quality of the sewer that he knows. It is unexpectedly clear.
The temperature of the sewer is far less hot than the outside because of the cold water. Looking around, Bai Wu believed that he was temporarily out of danger, and focused his gaze on the surface of the water.
Because of the light of the handcuffs, his face appeared on the surface of the water.
[A little beggar at the bottom of the high tower actually has a face worth nine points. I admit that your face makes me feel very jealous. If I were also a human being, you would be the enemy of my life. 】
The information is very limited, just like the things I saw before, I can understand some remarks, but the content is not very detailed.
High tower, ground floor.
“The tower…the humans live in the tower…the tower outside is dangerous and people cannot survive in that place.”
The memory of the original owner is like an empty toothpaste, in which nothing can be squeezed out any longer. Bai Wu can only rely on the knowledge he obtained from the dialogue box and his observation to solve the puzzle.
His brain quickly combined various pieces of information and quickly came to a conclusion that was close to the truth.
“The remarks mentioned the fourth-floor nobles and the beggars at the bottom. In the tower, there are different levels of floors, and the higher the level, the more noble the status.”
“And I became a toy for these nobles. This handcuff is obviously recording how I survived. Perhaps this is a gamble about my survival time? Sure enough, I still don’t like gambling and drugs.”
“The remarks mentioned the Evil Depravity. This should be some kind of monster outside the tower… It is more likely to be the real inhabitants of this abandoned city.”
“No matter how lucky I am, it is impossible to survive here for too long, at least in my current situation I cannot survive for too long. The real way to break the game is to find a way back to the tower. Only when I go back can I understand more about this world and learn basic knowledge.”
These are all speculations and cannot be verified. The top priority is to find a way back to the tower.
Looking at the bracelet, Bai Wu had a bold idea.
“The remarks did not mention whether the bracelet has the ability to transmit sound, and I do not know which language the people in this world use.”
Without the memory of the original owner, naturally, it is impossible to master the original owner’s language.
So Bai Wu raised his middle finger towards the handcuffs, and his expression completely changed. He no longer had a calm expression on his face but a look of contempt which probably meant.
‘Is this it’
The fourth floor of the tower. There was a sudden uproar.
“What an arrogant slave… surely he is not a talented individual?”
“Actor, He is definitely an actor! This bet is fake!”
“I want to see him die, where is the evil depravity? I want to see him die, die!”
“Hehe, it’s surprisingly interesting. I didn’t expect to participate in a bet like this and still lose. This kid actually lived for so long.”
The gamblers are in a state of fury.
The bet that most of them are betting is that the slave will die within an hour, and they all look forward to seeing the slave struggling before death, and looking at the ferocious depravity tearing the slave into pieces.
Until now, Bai wu has not been able to see these nobles but he could guess their thought process.
These nobles who thought they were superior were probably provoked by him, they probably thought how can a low-level untouchable insult a noble like them.
Bai Wu made no mistake in guessing. Hand gestures are still useable even in another world and the middle finger can be promoted to a cosmic-level gesture.
In the VIP stand, the lady in red wearing a half-bronze mask picked up the phone, apparently reprimanding her subordinates for not carefully checking the supply.
But on the other side of the phone, the person in charge of the gambling game was also very frightened, and constantly emphasized to the lady that the goods this time were indeed beggars from the bottom.
After hanging up, the lady reduced the anger on her face.
She gradually showed an expression of astonishment.
Outside the tower, people will instinctively feel fear, and even produce all kinds of negative emotions, and any negative emotions will attract evil depravity.
They are the scariest hunters outside the tower, able to smell emotions.
But the young man was calm from beginning to end, which is why he has not been attacked by any evil depravity for so long.
This kind of thing is unheard of… It’s like facing the world outside the tower without experiencing any kind of emotion.
What should I do if I am being bullied?
Bai wu’s style is making the bully feel uncomfortable in any kind of way. At the same time, seize every opportunity to fight back and hurt the bully.
He didn’t feel the slightest bit of anger in his heart, but he just didn’t want to accept death as the final outcome.
There is no right answer in the script called life, and everyone has a different way to play a role in the circle of life which is most suitable for them.
Bai wu caused ripples to appear on the surface of the water again, Bai Mist stared closely and attentively at the surface of the water.
【The quality of this water is so rubbish that it will make your stomach feel uncomfortable, but you don’t have to worry about dying due to its high pollution level. You don’t need to worry about excretion and vomiting after drinking water of bad quality, this water could at least be considered drinkable, so what are you waiting for… 】
The water could be drunk, which surprised Bai Wu. He ignored the pain, his festering hands kept holding up the water and he drank water till he was half full.
After experiencing high-temperature exposure, and suddenly drinking water, he felt like he has come back to life from death.
Next, Bai Wu began to explore the terrain.
“In the current hypothesis, gambling is the most reasonable answer. Since it is gambling, the dealer must be controlling the game.”
There is no casino in the world that really allows guests to gamble on luck, if it allows gambling on luck then its no different from a charity.
“The dealer will probably try to disturb me and put a stop to my survival time. After experiencing those provocations by me just now, they will probably find a way to kill me.”
Without any panic, Bai Wu even showed a weird smile.
The dealer’s methods he might not be able to deal with at all. But staying here in a place like this he will freeze to death.
When a person is in a life-or-death situation it greatly increases adrenaline secretion in the body.
Such a state of excitement fascinated Bai Wu. He began to scan his surroundings seriously.
“I can’t handle the dealer’s methods, but I am not the only one in this place.”
After walking in the sewer for a while, he kept focusing on every diretion and he finally fixed his gaze:
【A twenty-year elite-level depravity, only 300 meters away from you, within this range, if you have a little negative emotion, it will bring it to you. Why don’t you simply sing the song “Good Luck” now? 】
The content in the dialogue box made Bai Wu feel that he was lucky. The time and place is right and the people he wants are probably coming right now. He now perfectly occupies the right place and the right people for his survival.
He didn’t panic at all in this dangerous situation, and he even started to sing the song “Good Luck” in his mind.
“It is difficult to survive outside the tower. The environment is one aspect, but because of these terrifying monsters, human technology is not able to overcome these problems.
The architecture of 700 years ago mentioned in the remarks is similar to the architectural style of my last life. The existence of slaves means that the social system may be regressed, but technology should not be backward. ”
“Negative emotions can attract evil depravity, and negative emotions just not only contain fear so these creatures have a huge variety of emotions they could use to track you. I haven’t encountered a depravity so far… I am really a boy filled with positive energy.”
Bai Wu encountered the first problem in his plans.
Sadness, fear, anger… and other negative emotions, to him, are all extremely uncommon things.
In other words…the evil depravity couldn’t feel him.
“Pretending to be afraid, isn’t it equal to being afraid?”
