Mo Fan sent the Swift Star Wolf back to his dimension.
If he brought a wolf beast with dark blue fur almost long enough to sweep the floor around, he was simply announcing to the Black Vatican that he had come here to serve justice, just like the Golden Battle Hunters!
Mo Fan regrouped with Mu Ningxue and the others after the Swift Star Wolf roughly pointed a direction out to him.
“How do you know he went this way?” asked Rong Sheng in confusion.
“Why are you asking so many questions? Do you want to find Wang Xuxu or not?” replied Mo Fan impatiently.
Rong Sheng did not dare to ask further. He followed Mo Fan as they headed toward the structure behind the main building.
Compared to the luxurious main building, the structure behind it was a lot dimmer. It was unlikely to be used by guests. They did not recall seeing any workers going in and out of the building, either.
After moving through a few dim corridors and taking a few flights of stairs, the Swift Star Wolf told Mo Fan that they were approaching the place.
The corridor was in the shape of a circle. It took them a while to reach the corners. The rug was dark red, with locked rooms on both sides of the hall. There were rooms with a single door, double doors, and even bulky, heavy double doors with ring handles like those leading to a huge hall…
The Swift Star Wolf told Mo Fan that the scent had come from the room with the heavy double doors. Mo Fan took a closer look around and saw a faint red mark on a white wall nearby. It was the size of a mouth print. It was easy to overlook it if one was not taking a close look at it…
Mo Fan nudged Mu Ningxue and said to her in a low voice, “It’s Wang Xuxu’s blood, I think it was left here by accident. It seems to be from a wound or bruise. There isn’t much blood on the wall. Judging from the height, it should be from her arm, close to her shoulder…”
Mo Fan remembered that Wang Xuxu was around Mu Ningxue’s height. Using Mu Ningxue as a reference, he easily speculated where the wound was.
The mark was thin and long, and the scent was the same as that left on the whip. It implied that Wang Xuxu had been here.
“Xuxu! Xuxu, are you here? I am Rong…” Rong Sheng began to yell.
Mo Fan immediately covered the guy’s mouth and snapped, “Stop yelling, she might be kidnapped! You are only going to make it harder for us to rescue her!”
Rong Sheng’s eyes bulged. He finally nodded after a while.
Mo Fan tried to push the door, and realized it was unlocked. The heavy door opened up. The sound echoed through the corridor beyond.
There was no light inside. Mo Fan could barely see some ancient decorations. There was a furnace, a deer head hanging on the wall, a huge table, and curtains tightly covering a window…
“There’s no one here, but I think I smell something,” Mo Fan said with a frown.
The scent of Dark Beast Monsters and Cursed Beasts was unforgettable to most people. Mo Fan had encountered the Black Vatican several times. He could still recognize the scent no matter how weak it was.
“This place has been enclosed for too long. It stinks,” said Guo Wenyi.
“Yeah, why do I feel like the smell is getting stronger,” Rong Sheng was already covering his nose.
Mu Ningxue look to the door and said, “The smell is coming from outside.”
Mo Fan felt the pungent smell slowly growing stronger. After they opened the door, the air flowing in from the corridor was also filled with the same stench.
“Something is out there!” Mo Fan immediately realized something. He hurriedly went to the doors and cautiously closed them.
The doors made some noise when they were closed. The sound of something sprinting through the corridor was heard immediately, and it was getting closer!
“What is it?” Guo Wenyi and Rong Sheng heard the sound too. Their expressions stiffened instantly.
“Shh, keep quiet, we might have come to the right place,” Mo Fan replied in an extremely soft voice.
Mo Fan asked the others to stick close to him. He was planning to use the darkness to conceal their presence.
Not long after, a clear sound was heard from the corridor. They could hear something moving outside the heavy doors…
Guo Wenyi was standing right by the door. She could barely see the corridor through the tiny gap. A skinny, eerie creature slowly crawled past her line of vision on all fours. It had pitch-black skin, and a savage appearance, like a demonic monkey!
Guo Wenyi felt her scalp turning numb. Wasn’t this the same thing she saw eating a horse when she was walking home alone that night!?
It was the same, exactly the same!
Guo Wenyi was able to overcome her fear just recently with Mo Fan’s help, yet she never thought she would see the real creature again today. Even with a door between them, Guo Wenyi still felt her hair standing on end, as if she had turned into the horse that was pounced on by the creature, its stomach torn open, and going to be eaten alive at any second.
“Dark Beast Monsters,” Mo Fan told Mu Ningxue.
Around a minute later, the noise outside the door gradually disappeared.
Rong Sheng and Guo Wenyi backed off to the table in disbelief, especially Guo Wenyi, who was totally overwhelmed by fear.
“What…what was that?” asked Rong Sheng.
“Nothing too serious, don’t worry.” Mo Fan did not bother explaining further.
The Dark Beast Monsters were no longer able to pose any threat to Mo Fan, yet he could not afford to be careless. If a Dark Beast Monster was patrolling here, it meant they were already inside the Black Vatican’s territory. Killing a Dark Beast Monster would simply alert every member of the Black Vatican. If that happened, things would no longer be as easy as handling a few Dark Beast Monsters on patrol, but a bunch of Dark Beast Monsters and Cursed Beasts surging at them like a black tide!
Even so, Mo Fan was not scared of them. Mo Fan was never afraid to start a fight. However, what he worried the most about was the poison. If the Black Vatican was able to target a specific person and trigger the poison, once he was exposed, he would soon be lying on the ground vomiting black blood.
He had come to the right place. Zhao Pinlin was indeed a member of the Black Vatican. Mo Fan could not help but raise his thumb to Mu Ningxue.
A woman’s instincts were strong enough to tear down the Black Vatican’s disguise, let alone finding out their man was having an affair…
“You all should stay here, don’t make too much noise, and don’t leave before I’m back,” said Mo Fan.
Even though Mu Ningxue’s secondary element was Wind, she was still no match for Mo Fan in terms of moving stealthily and sneaking around. It was best for Mo Fan to move on his own.
“Be careful,” said Mu Ningxue.
“Remember, even if anything happens, try your best to hide your identity. The poison is the real threat to us,” Mo Fan specifically reminded Mu Ningxue.
