Release that Witch - Chapter 731: The First Contact
After the instrument had been activated, it would activate a light curtain thousands of kilometers away. Unfortunately, such an ability was way beyond the power of the witches. This was directly endowed by God.
Pasha looked back and found that all of the blobs were hanging down and touching the ground. The God’s Punishment Witches stood abreast the mounds with serious looks on their faces. The dead hybrid demonic beasts were deliberately placed on opposite sides and under the purple light, their light blue blood reflected fluorescent spots, it looked gloomy and terrifying.
If a group of common people witnessed this, they would have been frightened by such a hellish scene.
Pasha did not want things to turn out like this either. After the start of decomposition, the demonic beasts’ remains were going to become sticky and disgusting, and difficult to clean up. Even though the God’s Punishment Witches would be unable to smell it, she would sense it with her tentacles. Over 400 years, the hall had come to be their home and no one wanted to mess it up, but she had to prepare for the worst.
That was to say, Phyllis ran into danger and the ring had been broken by someone else.
If such a disaster really happened, it would be necessary to create the most horrific atmosphere to intimidate or even threaten those who might pose threats to her.
The western region of Graycastle was near the entrance of the Fertile Plains, so each year many lost demonic beasts would attack it. Whoever put Phyllis in danger, whether it was witches or common people, would conclude from the stockpiled dead demonic beasts that they were very difficult to deal with.
Only by making the other side clearly realize that the survivors of Taquila possessed great power, would they be able to bide time for a rescue.
“Activate the instrument,” Celine said, “we need to figure out Phyllis’ situation.”
Pasha touched her main tentacles and gave an order to the instrument.
Everyone immediately noticed the purple light dim as a huge purple curtain made of light enveloped the whole hall and an illusion of a scene appeared on the other side of the phantom instrument and in it the Five-Colored Stone had been broken into pieces.
Pasha was stunned and puzzled.
The place in the scene was not a murky dungeon, nor a remote wilderness, but an open and spacious hall.
The hall was very bright and clear and a long wooden table stood in the center of it, topped by a white tablecloth that held flowers and teacups. There were no signs of fighting, so it looked like the place had been deliberately chosen to just destroy the Magic Stone.
Phyllis was currently standing by a window as she chatted with another witch. She noticed the light curtain and turned around with a very surprised face as she asked, “What happened? Was the hall attacked?”
“Uh…” Pasha didn’t know how to respond at the moment. Phyllis’ situation did not match her assumptions. Phyllis had not been attacked or tortured, and she wasn’t even in danger. In fact, she was in higher spirits now than when she had departed. Looking carefully, Phyllis wasn’t wearing that cheap and vulgar maid suit. Instead, she was wearing a fine fluffy cloak and against the gorgeous clothes, naturally, she had a good complexion.
Everyone was as shocked as Pasha. They glanced around at one another, but no one opened their mouth to speak. Luckily, they became expressionless after they became blobs, otherwise, it would have been very embarrassing.
“Recently, the demonic beasts launched an attack, but the magic core and the relics of gods are safe and sound. We’re also all alive, so don’t worry.” As the most seasoned, Pasha was the first to regain her senses. She then added, “But, the bodies are many and we haven’t had enough time to clear them out.”
“Really?” Phyllis doubted.
“Of course, ahem…” Pasha waved her tentacles towards the God’s Punishment Witches behind her for emphasis. “Well, you continue to clean up the remains and remove them from the labyrinth before their fluids dry to the ground.”
The witches, who stood abreast with their serious looks, appeared to be extremely disappointed.
“How can we throw away so many bodies?”
“It takes us the whole day to pile them up.”
“I don’t want to touch those sticky and disgusting bodies.”
“You’re right. Although we can’t smell it, they look incredibly disgusting.”
“Stop complaining. Are you really willing to sleep with those bodies?”
“Can we throw them into the lava? At most, it’ll only smoke like a fire.”
“I can’t believe you! Do you want to turn the entire ruin into a chimney?”
“Pfft…” The blue-haired witch standing beside Phyllis couldn’t keep from laughing. “My guess is, they thought that you were in danger, so they arranged this scene to intimidate us.”
Pasha found her voice somewhat familiar and when she looked at her carefully, her name suddenly came to her mind.
“Are you Agatha?”
“What?” Celine questioned in surprise. “The youngest Senior Witch in history?”
“That’s impossible. She fell with Taquila, didn’t she?”
“Even if she managed to escape from the Holy City, how could she still have the same appearance as she did over 400 years ago?”
Both of the promoted people temporarily living in the meat lumps and the God’s Punishment Witches made sounds of perplexity.
“She’s indeed that senior witch,” Phyllis stated. “After she had been attacked by the demons in the research tower of the Misty Forest, she used the multi-layered frozen coffin to completely freeze herself and it killed all of her pursuers at the same time. When the Witch Union discovered the stone tower ruins, she was rescued.”
And, that was what had happened.
As she heard this, Pasha felt instantly excited and an encouraging idea aroused from her deep heart. Phyllis had not fallen with Taquila and she quickly revealed her identity to the witches of Graycastle. Besides, she also encountered a promoted person from Taquila, so Phyllis must have a clear purpose to contact the maze. Perhaps, this Senior Witch would be the Chosen One they had been looking for.
Upon hearing this, Phyllis gave them a look of embarrassment and she hesitated.
She first glanced at Agatha before saying in a low voice, “Could you give us a moment? It won’t take long.”
Agatha nodded. “When you’re done, I’ll inform His Majesty.” Having finished, she turned around and left the hall.
Then Phyllis took a deep breath and looked at Pasha again. “I’ve indeed found the Chosen One claimed by the Magic Stone, but he’s different from the people in our plan.”
“Wait a moment, he?” Pasha was stunned. Before she could ask further about it, Phyllis began to tell her about her absurd experience.
About how the witches could closely collaborate with common people.
About the powerful army that defeated the church.
About the powerful gunpowder weapons.
And, the most incredible thing… The Chosen One was one of the common people.
