Cataclysm Card Emperor:Chapter 12: I also want to take a gamble


Just as the intelligence had stated, the bullets hitting the monster seemed to sink into asphalt, causing ripples before it restored itself.

There was no damage at all.

The dozen mercenaries all showed fear on their faces.

They had all heard of the terror of this calamity.

Anyone it targeted would not survive!

Even the girl with the mechanical arms had a drastic change in her expression as she urgently warned her companion Ji Xun, “This monster is of the curse type. Whoever it targets will die! I have no way to resist that kind of curse.”

As she spoke, she cursed under her breath, “Damn it, how did this calamity end up here.”

She had confidence in dealing with other monsters.

But curse-type monsters couldn’t be dealt with using conventional means.

It was either supernatural or nothing!

Avoiding it was the best option.

Ji Xun listened without any change in his expression. He actually thought that encountering this monster made the situation normal.

Before he could finish his sentence, the group of mercenaries revealed the correct posture to face this monster.

The captain with the bald head shouted, “Run!”

They had no intention of fighting, and the mercenaries chose to run as soon as possible.

The bad news was that whoever the monster targeted would die.

The good news was that it only targeted one person at a time.

At this moment, everyone was gambling.

They were gambling that the monster wouldn’t choose them.

However, since this calamity appeared, someone was bound to die.

Just as the group of mercenaries had run a short distance, they suddenly saw a black shadow flicker past. Upon closer inspection, the gambling dog, who was hundreds of meters away, appeared mysteriously in front of the group of mercenaries.

Ji Xun’s gaze slightly narrowed and he was slightly surprised. “Teleportation?”

Hearing about it was one thing, but seeing it with one’s own eyes was another.

The hired mercenary in front of the “gambling devil” also didn’t expect to be chosen. His face turned pale.

The bald captain and the other mercenaries looked at him with pity, but in their hearts, they were relieved that they were not chosen.

It’s good that it didn’t choose them.

The bald captain’s eyes flashed with a cold light, without any hesitation. “Just run, don’t worry about him!”

Everyone knew that if the monster chose you, there was no chance of survival.

There was no meaning in staying behind.

Just as the words fell, the group of people completely disregarded their companion and didn’t even look at the safe anymore.

The monster completely ignored the escaping mercenaries and raised two shining playing cards in front of it with one hand.

After showing them, one of the cards had the pattern of the ‘Ace of Spades’.

Flashing in rapid succession, the two playing cards exchanged positions countless times.

It was a simple two-choice gambling method, which seemed to be testing eyesight.

The monster’s throat emitted a low and devilish voice. “Place your bet, which card is the Ace of Spades on?”

The mercenary who was chosen stared with a deathly pale face. It seemed like he was being restricted by some mysterious force, standing there dumbfounded.

He tremblingly reached out his hand, not wanting to choose, but knowing that not choosing would definitely result in death. Choosing seemed to offer half a chance of survival. “I… choose this card.”

The dog-headed monster looked at the card he chose, and a mocking human smile appeared on its terrifying dog face as it hoarsely said, “Congratulations… you guessed wrong!”

The answer was revealed.

The chosen card was flipped over, revealing nothing.

While the other card, it was indeed the Ace of Spades.

The moment the words fell, the terrified expression on the mercenary’s face instantly froze, and the person lost all sign of life and died on the spot.

Not far away.

Ji Xun, who had just run a short distance, watched this scene and couldn’t help but sigh, “This is a curse, such a strange method of killing.”

Originally, he wanted to see how the monster killed. But after seeing it, he realized that it was a method that completely exceeded his understanding.

As the intelligence had stated, this kind of instant death curse couldn’t be exempted by conventional means.

The group of mercenaries also saw this scene, and each of them was frightened. Their speed of escape became even faster.

However, after killing one person, the dog-headed monster teleported away again.

The mercenaries hadn’t even reacted, and the dog-headed monster had already appeared in front of the group of mercenaries.

After all, there were more than ten people, and the probability of being targeted by the monster was much higher.

And this time, the one chosen by the monster was the “sixth man” who was good at picking locks.

Just like before, the other mercenaries decisively abandoned their comrade and ran away.

But obviously, the mercenaries also realized that with more people, they would be more likely to be targeted by the monster. Even during their escape, the bald captain’s eyes flashed with a ruthless light as he unexpectedly shot two playing cards towards Ji Xun and the girl with the mechanical arms.

The girl with the mechanical arms noticed it keenly and raised her gun like lightning, shooting and shattering the two playing cards several meters away.

However, unexpectedly, when the two cards burst open, they exploded into fluorescent powder all over the ground.

The girl with the mechanical arms saw this and her face changed. “Not good, these are ‘dirty bomb cards’! This powder is bait made by the venom gland of zombie worms. The smell attracts the majority of calamities… Take off your vest quickly, let’s get out of here!”

Ji Xun took a glance at the powder on his body. Although he didn’t know what kind of worms they were, he guessed the purpose of this substance.

He spoke in a nonchalant tone, “Those mercenaries didn’t take action earlier because of precisely this plan. In their eyes, the only value of us surviving is as ‘bait.’ But it doesn’t matter…”

The girl with the mechanical arms listened to his words and felt that something was off. She thought she misheard him, “???”

The words she didn’t say before were: Even if I wanted to save you if you were chosen by the monster, I wouldn’t be able to.

But… what does he mean now?

Listening to his tone, it seemed like he believed that he could survive in front of the ‘gambling dog’?

Where did he get the confidence from?

Before she could ask any further, Ji Xun explained his motive for saying those words just now, “Since those mercenaries can’t kill this ‘gambling gambler,’ then sooner or later we will have to face this monster or other monsters. The risks of exploring the unknown areas aren’t necessarily lower than facing this monster. Let those guys step on the landmines first. Moreover…”


The girl with the mechanical arms wanted to ask what he meant, but after thinking about it, she felt that he was right.

Since the ‘gambler’ from the third floor could chase after them, what about the even more terrifying mysterious calamity on the fourth floor?

Or others?

The exploration degree of this dimensional space was only a little over 30%, and there were dangers that couldn’t be seen, much more dangerous than this ‘gambling dog.’

In the end, not running would cause even more trouble.

The girl hesitated for a moment.

After a pause, Ji Xun’s eyes flickered with an imperceptible madness, and he said the last sentence, “Besides, I also want to take a gamble.”
