Chapter 55: Victory and Defeat Had Been Decided From the Very Beginning.
Brook finally saw what they were.
He recognized these crows. They were the crows that had flown out of Flanders’ body before the game started.
“How come there are so many of them?”
The crows covered the sky and wrapped the entire manor tightly, not letting out a single ray of light.
The situation in front of him was beyond Brook’s expectations and beyond his understanding.
“Let me out. I’ve won. The sun has risen outside. The game is over. We’ve won!”
Brook did not care about the crows or the crows. He only knew that it was already ten o’clock. The sun had risen. He had won.
He wanted to go home.
He was tired of this boring game. He was tired of playing hide-and-seek.
He could not stay here any longer.
“Quickly let me out. Are you going back on your word?
Even if you surround this place with crows, you cannot change the fact that the sun has risen outside.”
Brook shouted. After looking at the countless crows in the sky, Brook’s heart was filled with unease.
The situation that he received from the system notification was like this.
[Fear points + 50]
[Fear points + 40]
[Fear points + 30]
After being tortured for an entire night, Brook, who was somewhat numb, once again began to provide fear points for Flanders.
Without a doubt, Brook was panicking now. He was afraid.
He was afraid that Flanders would break the agreement and would not let him go.
No matter how arrogant he was here, the initiative was not in his hands.
Just then, a familiar voice came from behind him.
Brooke had been waiting for this voice for a long time, and he was eager to get the answer he wanted from Flanders.
But the truth was a little different than he had expected.
The voice was indeed Flanders’ voice, but it was not Flanders who made it.
Brook turned his head, and what was reflected in his pupils was not brook’s terrifying body.
It was a strange man whose face was covered by black hair and a cell phone.
The voice came from the cell phone.
Just now, black opened a video that he had saved before.
This was the first video. It was about what happened at the beginning of the game.
Under black’s control, the progress bar stretched and finally stopped at a certain point.
At this time, Flanders was about to announce the conditions for Brook and the others to win.
“When the sun rises, the light will once again appear in the manor, and I have yet to find you. That will be my victory.”
After all, the phone that had been running for the entire night was running out of battery, and its performance had decreased, causing Brook’s voice to be a little distorted.
However, this did not prevent others from listening to this sentence.
Although the voice was distorted, the words were still obvious.
Everyone could hear this sentence clearly.
Hearing this familiar sentence again, Brook made a discovery.
Previously, because they were too scared and nervous, they had neglected a lot of details.
At this time, listening to it again, Brook quickly caught the key to this sentence.
The rising of the sun was not the key at all. The real key was that the light in the middle appeared again in the manor.
“So that’s how it is. Is this the real reason why the crows appeared?”
Crows were not used to monitor from the beginning. Instead, crows were meant to block the sunlight from the beginning.
At this moment, brook completely understood Flanders’ intentions.
Sure enough, the other party had never thought of releasing them from the start.
What conditions for victory? Everything was giving them false hope.
“No, you can’t do this. You’re cheating!”
Brook went completely mad.
He became crazy and shouted, but the words he said were completely incomprehensible.
Suddenly, Flanders appeared and waved the scythe in his hand.
The sharp scythe cut brook in half.
Brook did not die immediately. He was still breathing after being cut in half.
“I’m a man of my word. I’ll let you go if I say so.”
Under Brook’s fearful gaze, Flanders’ face appeared in front of him.
“The so-called light is not limited to the sunlight. The gaze of the crows and the light of the phone screen can be counted.”
“Uh, uh, you…”
Brooke’s eyes widened, and there was some doubt on his face.
“Isn’t it strange that I still chose to attack you?”
“Although you did accidentally fulfill this condition, there’s still one more condition that you guys didn’t fulfill from the beginning.”
Hearing Flanders’ words, the condition of victory flashed through Brook’s mind again.
“When the sun rises, the light will appear in this manor once again, and I have yet to find you. That is my victory.”
I have yet to find you.
Brook immediately understood. This time, he completely understood.
The game they were playing was hide-and-seek. The game rule of hide-and-seek was that as long as you were discovered, you would lose.
In other words, from the beginning, whether it was Brook or the others, as long as they were caught by the black phone, they would have already lost.
From the moment the black phone was filmed, Brook’s ending was already destined.
So that was how it was…
Confused, Brook’s eyes widened, his pupils dilated, and he died with his eyes wide open.
After getting rid of one, Flanders looked at the obedient black.
Taking the phone from black, Flanders looked at the phone that was still working and said in surprise,
“As expected of a magician’s phone. The quality is really good!”
Flanders checked and confirmed that the remaining battery was enough to finish the final work. Then, he led black to the villa.
“If there’s a chance in the future, I’ll buy more goods from those magicians.”
Those mages from the Mage Association probably never dreamed that they would one day be targeted by others because of the equipment.
After a long time, when the last sound of participation dissipated in the villa, the crows surrounding the villa began to separate.
The sun once again fell on the body of the abandoned villa.
“The weather today is pretty good.”
Flanders walked out of the villa in a refreshed manner.
The next day, a brand new video with the familiar prefix appeared on youtube’s home page.
“Scarecrow: I want to play a game with you guys!”
The moment this video appeared, it immediately attracted the attention of a group of netizens.
The number of clicks and playback quickly soared.
At the same time, the frequency of the system notification on Flanders’ side instantly increased by a lot.
