I’m Actually a Cultivation Bigshot - Chapter 799 - Little Fox: My Game Is More Fun
Chapter 799 Little Fox: My Game Is More Fun
“Hahaha, make a bet with your life if you want the treasure!” came a voice accompanied by a burst of giggles.
A short person suddenly appeared on top of the giant dice. He was only half the height of an ordinary person. He had a big mouth and small eyes, looking like a miniature toy man. With a strange smile on his face, he looked at everyone giggling. However, although he was laughing, what he said made everyone’s blood run cold. ‘Bet with my life to get the treasures? Unless absolutely necessary, who would be willing to take a gamble on a treasure with their own life?’
Immediately, everyone went silent.
On a high mountain in the distance, Master Wind, Master Fire, and the Left Messenger were watching from the sidelines.
“Hahaha, there he is! The Deadly Gambler of the Origins Pond of Holy Dimension. No one has ever won a gamble with him. They’re all dead-men now!” said Master Wind with a laugh.
“Although we can’t get all the treasures here, we’re still making full use of this Origins Pond of Holy Dimension by using it to wipe out a few strong enemies!” gloated Master Fire. “It’s definitely over for them. Let’s go and witness the moment of their deaths!” said Master Wind.
“Let’s,” said Master Fire with a nod.
Left Messenger trembled with fright and said in disbelief, “My Lords, surely you’re not seriously going over there?”
“Yes, it’d be a shame if we don’t take this opportunity to mock them. Don’t you think so?” said Master Wind matter-of-factly. He was looking forward to mocking them from a closer distance so that they could witness their despair and demise. What a perfect day it would be for him!
“My Lords, it’s still early in the game. There are too many variables. It’d be hasty of us to go there now,” said Left Messenger in a bid to dissuade them. She had been slowly retreating, trying to put some distance between herself and both of the masters. ‘Oh, sh*t. Looks like the same thing’s going to happen again! Going there to mock the others is the same as walking to their own deaths. There’s no doubt about it!’ Master Fire shook his head nonchalantly and said, “Hahaha, there’s such a thing as being too overcautious. I don’t blame you though, since you don’t know just how terrifying the Origins Pond of Holy Dimension is.”
Left Messenger almost laughed, thinking, ‘And you don’t know just how terrifying that group of people are!’ Master Wind waved his hand dismissively and said, “Okay, you don’t have to go if you don’t want to. We won’t force you. We’ll just go by ourselves.”
Then, he and Master Fire flew over while Left Messenger stayed where she was, sending them off with her eyes.
On the other side.
A lone cultivator finally asked, “What should we bet on?”
“Good question.” The toy man was still giggling. “You’ll be the first to bet with me!”
He pointed at the lone cultivator and a dice appeared above his head.
“It’s very simple. You can choose any treasure you like as long as you can roll a number bigger than mine.”
The game was indeed simple, but that actually made it even more worrying. The simpler the game, the more dangerous it was since it was less about strategizing and more about luck. More importantly…was this really just a simple game of luck? The toy man was obviously both a contestant and a referee!
The lone cultivator suddenly felt a mountain of pressure weighing down on him and asked anxiously, “What if my number’s smaller than yours?”
The toy man erupted in a burst of loud laughter and said one word only, “Death!” The lone cultivator immediately took two steps back, shook his head, and said, “Then I don’t want to play anymore.”
“Hahaha, you’ll die nonetheless if you don’t play,” came a cold voice. Master Wind and Master Fire walked over and stopped not too far away. Both of them were smirking, as if waiting to see a good show.
The deputy master of the Shinto Pavilion suddenly narrowed his eyes and said, “It’s you guys, isn’t it? The one who set us up?” “Bingo!” admitted Master Wind graciously.
“You have no choice but to gamble with the Deadly Gambler now that you’ve entered the dice’s range. If you don’t, you’ll die. If you gamble, there’s still a chance of life, but we might as well tell you the result in advance. You’ll definitely lose!” said Master Fire.
“In other words, your death is guaranteed from the moment you enter the dice’s range!” said Master Wind with a smirk. After a pause, he smiled again and said, “Friendly reminder, don’t even think about escaping. You’ll die an instant death once you step out of the dice’s range!” Master Wind and Master Fire’s moods were instantly uplifted when they saw everyone’s faces getting more and more dismayed, making the smiles on their faces smugger and smugger. They had made the right decision to show their faces. After all, it was only fun when one got to share the genius of the plan with their victims.
“The game begins!” The toy man began to giggle while the dice above its head began to spin rapidly.
There were already fine beads of sweat on the lone cultivator’s forehead. He had no choice but to grit his teeth and pour his mana into the dice above his head, making it spin rapidly as well.
Soon, the two dice stopped one after another.
The toy man rolled a five while the lone cultivator rolled a three.
The toy man’s smile became wider. “You lose. Your life belongs to me now. Hahaha—”
The lone cultivator was full of despair and panic. He was just about to run away, only to find that his physical body had disappeared. The next to go was his Origins of Life, and lastly, his consciousness. In a blink of an eye, a second-step Wisdom Elite was annihilated in front of everyone’s eyes. “What…what…what kind of power is this?” “I didn’t feel any energy fluctuations at all, so what exactly killed that lone cultivator?”
“This is the power of the rules of this Origins Pond of Holy Dimension. You lose, you die. There’s no reason or logic at all.”
“This is bad, really bad! So does that mean we’re all going to die here?”
They all started to panic. There was nothing they could do in the face of this power.
The toy man scanned everyone excitedly, looking for his next target.
“What a boring game,” said a contemptuous voice suddenly.
The toy man turned his head sharply to face Little Fox. His usually giggling face was replaced by an angry one. “What did you say? You can insult anything, but you mustn’t insult my game!” he shouted loudly.
Little Fox curled her lips and said contemptuously, “This game is an insult of itself. I’m afraid it’ll be difficult to find a game that’s more boring than this. I pity you, you probably haven’t seen all the games the world has to offer.”
“You’re talking nonsense! What other game can be more interesting than mine, absolutely impossible! You must be lying, I’m going to kill you!” roared the toy man with disbelief.
Little Fox silently took out a chessboard, smiled bewitchingly, and said, “Why don’t you try an exciting game of airplane chess!”
