Cataclysm Card Emperor :- Chapter 22 The Incident at the Campsite after Passing Through S

Chapter 22 The Change of the Camp After Passing the S Level

The surroundings suddenly changed, and Ji Xun found himself out of the eerie secret room he was just in.

It was a magical experience, like a time-space teleportation, stepping through the twisted light gate led to another world.

Just as he was about to observe the environment, he found thick mist all around, with extremely low visibility.

The air was filled with a strong smell of sulfur.

While Ji Xun was trying to figure out where he was, he heard a familiar and urgent voice next to him saying, “Quick, follow me!”

The person was none other than Jiu Jiu, who had come out first from the dimensional space.

What Ji Xun didn’t know was that when he cleared the stage with an S rating, a drastic change occurred simultaneously outside the dimensional space.

For every dimensional space, it was like a treasure cave for treasure hunters.

The 【407 Detainment Center】 discovered in the Demon Cross Ruins was known for its high yield of treasures.

Naturally, there were explorers.

Not far from the dimensional space was a temporary camp, with a roaring campfire.

Dozens of members of the Blackwater Mercenary Corps were stationed here, along with one or two hundred treasure hunters preparing to enter the space again.

In a tent in the corner of the camp, the leader of the Blackwater Mercenary Corps was respectfully guarding a young man in a suit. And the bald team leader who came out alive was now reporting something to this fourth young master of the Cao family, Cao Yuhui.

After leaving the dimensional space, Cao Yuhui had not relaxed his frowning brows.

He had just obtained a B ranking upon clearing the level, which was far from his expectations.

He kept thinking about how he should have dealt with the last clown game in the space, there must have been a better solution.

Although he lost a loyal old servant, it was fortunate that it was not entirely in vain, as he obtained valuable information.

Now that he had confirmed that the “T-class Disaster Item” was in the space, no matter what means he had to use, he must obtain it!

The bald team leader was still eloquently recounting how he led two mercenary squads all the way from the first floor of the dungeon to the end: “Young Master, those monsters were too ferocious, if it weren’t for our sufficient firepower…”

This guy had no idea how Ji Xun and the other person managed to survive until the end.

It seemed like luck was on their side, rushing to kill the monsters each time, while those two stayed far away from the monsters’ attention.

In his view, without them attracting the monsters’ hatred, those two would never have survived until the end.

Of course, even though he had some vague suspicions, he couldn’t say anything right now.

He just embellished how brave their Blackwater Mercenary Corps was, encountering various terrifying disasters along the way. They made it to the end relying solely on his bald command and the bravery of his teammates.

At the end, the bald man added, “Ah, it’s a pity for the brothers.”

Cao Yuhui listened to the bald man’s experience of clearing the level, but instead of clearing his doubts, the look of confusion in his eyes intensified.

He had triggered the hidden mainline in the space himself, how could he not know the danger?

According to reason, except for the people who followed him, the rest couldn’t have possibly survived.

But unexpectedly, in this nearly impossible difficulty level, a few managed to survive.

The bald man detailed how they encountered the A-rank【Cursed Gambler】, the mysterious A-rank disaster on the fourth floor, and how many people died along the way. All of this was within his expectations.

But when he heard about the hole in the wall of the 2013 room, Cao Yuhui felt something was fishy.

The wall could be broken open?

Before that, he directly used the secret method recorded in the family heritage files to find the passage to the lab, then went directly into the central control room of the dungeon.

But there was a mention of breaking walls?

His thoughts suddenly opened up.

After listening, Cao Yuhui asked, “So you mean, when you entered, the wall of the 2013 room was already broken?”


The bald man still couldn’t understand why there was a hole in the wall of the 2013 room.

Clearly, everyone had tried it, and the walls were all unbreakable.

But that room had a hole in the wall.

He was very astute and didn’t talk about anything unrelated to his merits.

But the more Cao Yuhui thought about it, the more he felt something was wrong.

Since there was a hole in the wall in the 2013 room, it didn’t make sense for them not to encounter the【Fallen Witch】in the 2012 room.

He asked again, “Did you not encounter the【Fallen Witch】 on the second floor?”

This question also puzzled the bald man, “No, we didn’t.”

Could she have been killed?

A thought flashed in Cao Yuhui’s mind, but he immediately felt that he was overthinking it.

Since it wasn’t the mercenaries who killed her, how could those two loners have the ability to kill the Fallen Witch?

Most likely, they were just lucky not to encounter her.

After all, this dimensional space only allowed apprentice cardists to enter, and the strength of the【Fallen Witch】was something these Lower City hunters couldn’t handle.

The only reasonable explanation was that the two loners accidentally stumbled upon the hole in the wall and survived until the end.

But something felt off.

No matter which monster they encountered behind the wall in the lab, those two loners wouldn’t have been able to handle them.

Could it be that the bald man was right about their good luck, managing to evade danger each time?

Cao Yuhui felt that something was amiss.

In a flash, he thought of the moment when the two of them reached the end without using their guns, that kind of calmness was definitely not luck.

Or perhaps he had misjudged, and it was just a pair of hapless lovers?

Cao Yuhui couldn’t figure it out for a while, he looked at the bald man coldly and asked, “Is that all you have to say? Anything else?”

Looking at the expression of the young master, the bald man suddenly felt that something was wrong, but since he had said everything he could, he responded, “Nothing more.”

With a wave of his hand, Cao Yuhui didn’t even deign to look directly at him, muttering to himself, “Strange, where did it go wrong?”

The bald man was the only live person from the dimensional space besides himself, and he had to die. The secret of the epic source card must not be exposed.

Cao Yuhui had received information from the bald man, and he now had a comprehensive understanding of the layout of the entire dimensional space.

He also speculated that perhaps because he took a shortcut, he missed some crucial clues that would’ve led him to solve the puzzle at the end.

He thought about sending someone to explore the path from the 2013 room next time to see if they could find any key clues.

Near the exit of the 407 space, some mercenaries had been stationed to monitor it for a long time, along with a few cardist captains. Since no one had emerged for so long, he was certain those two individuals had died inside.

Cao Yuhui couldn’t think of any other possibilities.

What if…

No, there was no what if.

No matter what, they were just two apprentice cardists.

Thinking about this, he waited in the camp.

He waited for a few more hours for the dimensional space to restart, and the portal would once again materialize.

But he never expected that one of the loners in the space was not an ordinary person.

And because of this negligence, a major incident occurred!

As time passed, the mist outside the Devil’s Cross camp became denser and denser, with visibility reduced to just a few meters covered by the campfire.

Although the ruin had been enveloped in thick fog for years, today’s mist seemed thicker.

This made Cao Yuhui somewhat restless.

Whether it was the damp air and the pungent volcanic ash that made him uncomfortable, or for some other reason.

If it wasn’t for the T-class disaster item, he wouldn’t have come to this place where only Lower City talents would come.

However, just then, someone in the distance suddenly shouted.

“Captain, it’s not good! The portal to the 407 dimensional space has disappeared!”

“How is that possible! How could it disappear?”

In no time, the entire camp was in an uproar.

Upon hearing this news, the fourth young master’s face turned pale as he suddenly stood up, his expression turning ashen.

Although he couldn’t believe it, he also guessed what had happened: Those two people had cleared the dimensional space!

He shouted, “Find that person!”
