Chapter 85: Find The Target, The Ghost-Type Strange Creature!
After seeing the sphere made of corpses, Teach and Kraang were finally able to confirm.
The connection point between the real world and the Domain was this water tank!
Everything that had happened before could be explained.
This strange creature used the water in this water tank as a medium, allowing it to shuttle between the two worlds.
The water used as a medium flowed through the pipes to the entire dormitory building.
At this time, anyone who touched the water flowing out of the water tank would become the strange creature’s target, causing the strange creature to appear, and then be pulled into its Domain!
The fate of ordinary people who were pulled into the strange creature’s Domain was certain. They would definitely die miserably.
Moreover, those who died in the Domain would become nutrients for the strange creature’s growth, increasing its strength.
And after midnight every day, it was time for the strange creature to act.
When the sun was about to appear, the strange creature’s actions would end.
“So it’s a ghost-type strange creature. No wonder the timing of its movement time is so regular.”
“Yeah, I should have thought of it long ago. So, it seems that the first missing girl who seemed to be unrelated was the real murderer of the follow-up incidents.
She died for some reason and became a strange creature. As the dead, she began to take revenge on the living.”
After seeing the strange creature, all the doubts from before were explained.
Looking behind the strange creature’s body, Teach and Kraang seemed to see another world.
It was a world full of pain and fear.
With just a glance, Teach and Kraang seemed to be attracted to this Domain.
The three girls’ wails kept ringing in their ears.
A trace of fear flashed in Teach’s eyes. This was the first time she had seen such a scene.
After roughly understanding the strange creature’s movement pattern, Kraang immediately dialed the school administrator.
He asked them to issue a notice telling the students in the dormitory building not to touch the water in the toilet after midnight, and that they can only touch the water after the sun rose.
It was best to lie on the bed and not go anywhere.
Why was it limited to the water in the toilet?
This was also due to the trouble of the dormitory building. The main water tank in the entire dormitory building was responsible for two place’s water supply.
One was the public toilet on each floor, and the other was the public bathhouse.
There was only one public bathhouse, but there was a time limit to its use.
After 10:30 p.m. every night, the bathhouse would stop supplying water, and the use of the bathhouse would be prohibited.
It was also thanks to this rule that the number of victims did not continue to increase.
If the students in this dormitory building were to learn this rule, which had been complained about and loathed, actually turned out to save their lives, what would they think then.
After watching Kraang hang up the phone, Teach asked him, “now that we have figured out this strange creature’s movement pattern, what should we do next? Are you still planning to subdue it?”
The man lit a cigarette for himself silently and took a deep puff.
This puff directly smoked the entire cigarette.
Slowly exhaling, the smoke covered Kraang’s face, making it difficult to see his thoughts.
Hiding in the smoke, Kraang’s eyes were filled with struggle.
He looked through the smoke, looking at the three female corpses in the water tank, remaining silent for a long time.
Teach also knew how much pain the other party was feeling right now. The opportunity to change their fate was right in front of him.
But if he acted rashly, the probability of failure was higher.
He could lose his life at any time because of his greed at this moment.
Moreover, ghost-type strange creatures, compared to the normal physical types, were more troublesome to deal with.
The strange creature was born after dying once before. It was naturally difficult to destroy it again and kill it.
“Report to the higher-ups. After killing two people, it is no longer something that mages of our level can touch.
I’ll have the roof locked down and set up a barrier.
Then, we’ll wait for them to send experts to deal with it.”
It was not easy to meet a strange creature who had such potential and still not fully grown, yet he was giving up now.
Not to mention Kraang, Teach was also feeling very upset.
It was such a rare situation for a newborn strange creature to have a Domain.
What a pity…
But compared to Kraang, Teach felt a little better.
After knowing Kraang’s ambition, she knew that no matter what kind of strange creature it was, it basically had nothing to do with her.
After a pause, she nodded and raised her hand to close the lid of the water tank.
But at that moment, something unexpected happened.
The head in the middle of the corpse ball suddenly opened its eyes and spat out a column of water at her.
Knowing that it was a strange creature, Kraang and Teach were always on alert.
Although it was a sudden action, it was not out of expectation.
As soon as the column of water spurted out, Kraang immediately reacted!
The smoke that had been set up in the surroundings quickly condensed, and Kraang quickly chanted a spell.
The smoke immediately condensed into a shield in front of Teach.
He thought that it would be foolproof, but in the end, something unexpected happened.
Facing Kraang’s barrier, the water column that the female ghost strange creature eerily spurted passed through and directly doused Teach’s body.
It was as if the barrier did not exist at all.
Kraang’s expression instantly changed. At this moment, the other two heads on the female ghost eerily opened their mouths at the same time.
Two water pillars shot straight at Kraang.
Without any surprise, Kraang was also successfully hit.
After being hit, Kraang cursed in a low voice. His expression was a little nervous.
But after waiting for a few seconds, he did not feel anything strange.
The water that the strange creature spat out was just like ordinary water. It did not cause any discomfort when it fell on his body.
There was not even a strange smell.
“Corpses… the corpses in the water tank are gone!”
At this moment, Kraang heard Teach’s shout.
He raised his head and glanced at the water tank.
Sure enough, the corpses in the water tank were gone!
This made Kraang’s expression turn a little ugly.
The strange creature’s disappearance from the water tank was not a good thing!
This meant that the two of them were no longer in the real world.
They were in the Domain!
“Be careful, we’ve been caught by the strange creature!”
Kraang took a deep breath, and his expression was extremely serious.
“What? We’ve been dragged into its Domain? When did this happen?”
Teach had a surprised look on her face.
She did not feel any discomfort after being caught in the water column.
She looked up at the surrounding environment, and it was no different from the real world.
“This strange creature’s growth is faster than I thought. Don’t forget that the strange creature uses water as a medium to travel between two worlds.
In other words, as long as the strange creature wishes it, this water can be used as a ticket to travel between two worlds.
However, this ticket is a one-way ticket. We have no way to go back.
We can’t stop this power. We can’t even sense it.
We’re already in the strange creature’s world, let’s hope we can still get out alive.”
Kraang said with a complicated expression.
