Chapter 254 - Do I Want Him Dead Or Not?

As he cautiously moved around, Kouske couldn ’t reach the last room as easily as he could for the other two rooms. 

Liam was too close to the door. Even if his invisibility disappears for a fraction of a second, he might get noticed.

Also, the previous two rooms did not have any guardians or undeads roaming about inside them. The same probably wouldn ’t be true for this one.

If this was the main room where the quest item was located, there was most definitely something guarding it.

Kouske paused for a second without moving, running through the various possible scenarios in his mind. He then looked at the man who was still fighting with the death knights.

No matter how much he thought about it, there were two scenarios that could play out and both had high chances of being in his favor.

Now all he had to do was open the door and see if there was a mob inside or not. If there was, he knew what to do and if there wasn ’t, he also knew what to do.

Kouske took another look at Liam and then banged open the last room ’s door as well.

Meanwhile…

”Hu Hu Hu. ” Liam panted as he slashed his sword vertically, taking care of yet another death knight. 

Now only the last four were remaining and this fight looked like it was finally coming to an end. He was at the end of the tunnel as well and so close to getting his hands on the inheritance.

Perhaps this was the last time he needed to fight like this. 

Not that he minded fighting like a dog until he exhausted his last ounce of strength… but it was definitely better to have some minions to do the dirty job for you.

”Alright. Now that only we five are left… shall we kick this fight into high gear? ” Liam grinned and dashed towards the four indifferent death knights.

There was no fear or emotion in their eyes and they continued to do their master ’s bidding which was to protect the place from any intruders.

So not giving a damn about who they were attacking, the death knights swung their sharp serrated weapons.

”Nope. Maybe if you guys had better weapons… good luck next time. ” 

Liam twisted his body and backflipped to evade the attack and he then dashed forward to return back what he received.

He had already grasped the rhythm of the fight thoroughly so it didn ’t matter that he was so damn tired. 

He easily blocked and tackled the attacks and took away the opponent ’s health in bits and pieces by steadily sending out his.

Everything was progressing smoothly without any hitch and he was almost done with the last hurdle that stood in his path.

However, right at this time, Liam felt something strange and out of place. From the corner of his eyes, he noticed that something was off…

Something was moving in the background? But was it something or someone?

Maybe he had caught sight of someone moving?

But… how could that be possible? 

He was all alone in this tunnel. He had to be alone, because if there was someone else…

The tunnel was also pretty narrow. He had to search this zone for hours and uproot trees to find this spot. How could there be someone else?

But if there was someone else… It was impossible that another player stumbled onto this location before him!

But what about after? Could it be Kouske and his group?

No, Liam shook his head. He was not yet Level 50. Kouske and the other were also not yet Level 50. In fact, none of the players were Level 50 yet.

So it was not possible that they decided to come to this place so soon. That would just be a foolish move, literally asking for death.

Also, why would they choose today of all days to come to this quest ’s location? It just seemed too improbable.

Could it be some other player who was passing by this place and coincidentally noticed the huge gaping hole he had dug in the ground?

No, that was also not possible. Why would any low-level player come to this remote location? The chances of that happening were too less.

”Am I just imagining things? ” Liam was too tired and maybe for a second, his vision was blurry. He tried to rationalize the nagging thought in his brain.

If he had gotten a better look, he wouldn ’t be in this dilemma, but whatever he saw, it was just momentary and fleeting. So he was unable to put a finger on it and explain it.

And as he was mulling over this issue and continuing to fight the remaining four death knights, suddenly the entire tunnel trembled.

Without any warning, the huge door of the middle cave banged open and someone came out flying from inside. 

Liam instantly froze, and then spun around, moving out of the way of the debris. 

Fuck! He was indeed correct! There had been someone here all along! How the hell had he missed this!

However, right now, he did not have any time to pay attention to this person who came flying out like a flea.

Because in front of him, a humongous death knight stood, his eyes flaming blue in color and thick vapors of nether seeping out of him.

And on top of that, a string of unbelievable words lingered.

[Ding. Level 80 Rare Elite Bastion]

”Level 80? ” Liam ’s face changed, a grave look appearing. The consequence of something like this appearing out of nowhere had not escaped him.

Also, there was the other person…

His brain whirred, trying to desperately find a solution to this disaster but before he could think about anything, a loud dark voice boomed, echoing in the closed tunnel.

”Who dares to desecrate my Master ’s lab? ”

Liam was shocked. This one can even speak? 

As if the fight was already not tough enough just based on the level difference, the undead in front of him seemed to possess actual intelligence.

More importantly, its soulless terrifying eyes were fixated specifically on him.
