Chapter 59 Poisoning

I threw Ping Lian’s head into the coffin liquid and breathed a sigh of relief. Ping Lian’s eyes slowly returned to normal as his head sank to the bottom of the coffin liquid.

My hands and armpits were covered in mucus, and a pure black blood was gushing out from Ping Lian’s wound. It was giving off an indescribable stench as it dyed the coffin liquid a strange black color.

I sighed. There was no place on my body that was clean now that everything was stained with these disgusting things.

At this time, however, I found that Ping Lian’s blood was too smelly. It was so smelly, in fact, that I couldn’t even open my eyes. The whole space was filled with an extremely strong ammonia-like smell, so I tried to take smaller breaths. But I found that the smell made the air become almost like a tangible thing. As it was sucked into my lungs, I could feel my nose hairs being corroded.

I found a corner and squatted down. I wanted to continue holding out for as long as I could, but I found that my eyes were starting to blur. Not good, I said to myself. This smell is probably poisonous.

There wasn’t enough time to waste checking on the situation outside, so I tilted my head, pushed my shoulders against the coffin lid, and tried lifting it up.

The lid was very heavy—in fact, it was difficult for a single person to open it—but I had done special training and knew the secret to uniting the strength in your waist and legs so that you could exert more force.

Face turning red with the effort, I pushed hard on the coffin lid until a gap was revealed bit by bit. I immediately put my nose to it and took a deep breath of the air outside. But the coffin was so smelly that my skin started to itch. I immediately exerted my strength and lifted the coffin lid until I could get out. Then, I quickly used one hand to raise my flashlight to my cheek and looked around.

Fatty, Poker-Face, and the giant corpse were gone. It was quiet all around.

I couldn’t think too much about what was going on and just focused on getting out of the coffin first. Then, I immediately pushed the lid back on the coffin again.

The smell faded and the irritating sensation on my body immediately began to ease. As expected, there was a problem with the smell.

I sniffed myself. Although I didn’t feel itchy anymore, I still smelled terrible. I figured I was probably covered in a mixture of about seven or eight kinds of disgusting things.

I gripped the knife at my back as I stuck close to the edge of the coffin and listened to my surroundings. They might have taken the fight somewhere else but I couldn’t hear any sounds, nor could I see anything even after sweeping my flashlight around the area.

Fuck me, what am I supposed to do now? I asked myself. At this time, I saw a huge mark on the coffin platform where we had all been standing before that giant corpse showed up.

That thing wasn’t here before and I didn’t know what it was, but the mark it left in the dust was almost like a snake had moved through the messy pile of footprints.

Not only was the mark about as thick as an oil drum, but it was so huge that I wondered if that was why Poker-Face had ordered me to hide in the coffin.

My whole body suddenly broke out in a cold sweat. This thing was more than four times bigger than the giant corpse, and it had crawled here. What could it be?

Well, whatever it was, I was certain that something big had happened outside just now. But just as I was starting to worry, I suddenly saw a mark on the ground next to the “snake” mark.

It was Poker-Face’s symbol, which meant: hide yourself and follow slowly.

There was also another mark on the side, which was a nose with an X drawn on it. Fatty was the one who drew this mark.

I breathed a sigh of relief and then examined Fatty’s mark again. I immediately understood that it was referring to smell and that Fatty wanted me to cover up my own scent.

I sniffed myself again. No ghosts can smell me now. I was originally looking for something to wipe all this gunk off, but now I had no choice but to keep it on.

It seemed that Poker-Face didn’t lock me in to protect me, but because my scent would cause him trouble.

I thought about it, opened the coffin lid again, and then fished out some of the dog blood-infused coffin liquid from inside. After smearing a little on my knees and shoulders, I couldn’t keep my eyes open because of the terrible smell.

Once I was done with that, I closed the coffin lid again, pointed my flashlight at the darkest area, and secretly looked at the huge “snake” mark.

I had seen countless snake marks before, so when I saw what direction that thing was moving in, I knew it wasn’t a snake at all. It was something very similar to a snake, but its movements were different. I didn’t know what it was, but it was useless to guess now. Poker-Face and Fatty’s footprints seemed to be following this thing, which meant that they were probably tracking it.

I quietly followed the mark and soon saw that it led to the front of the mural with the dark spot on it.

The mark disappeared in front of the mural.

I stared blankly for a moment and then looked down at Poker-Face and Fatty’s footprints. Sure enough, their footprints also disappeared.

Fuck me.

Well, I guess it’s kind of interesting, I said to myself. Did they go into the wall? Is this not a dark spot but a black hole?

I touched it with my hand and found that it was absolutely impossible to get in. Then I looked at it with my peripheral vision and found that I couldn’t see anything at all. This time, there was nothing in the dark spot.

The underground palace was very quiet. I looked back and saw that there were a lot of figurines, but I couldn’t see everything clearly. Without Fatty talking, the surrounding coldness seemed to rush right at me.

Then my eyes started to hurt and I found that things became blurred. I also noticed a coppery taste in my mouth. When I wiped at it, I found that I had a nosebleed.

I kept wiping it with my hands but the bleeding wouldn’t stop. Then I saw that my nails had turned black. I touched them and found that they seemed to be falling off.


I cursed in my heart as I immediately returned to the coffin. It’s corpse poisoning. I took off my clothes as I walked, returning to the edge of the coffin completely naked. I dropped to the ground, immediately gathered all the dust around me, and then started rubbing it on my body.

Yep, there it is. One named Wu Xie simply cannot go into a tomb without getting naked (sucks he’s poisoned, though)
