Versatile Mage - Chapter 1567: We Are Used to Courting Death
Edited by Aelryinth
When Mo Fan was tearing the young Medusa apart with brute force, the proud creature burst into tears in fear and pain. Mo Fan used her Tears to get rid of the Curse on himself and the others.
Heidi took pity on Zoey, Sofia, and the others. She ended up sharing the Tears with them so they could get rid of the Curse, too.
Mo Fan gave the rest of the tears to Anna, handing them in for the quest’s reward pool.
Mo Fan could not have cared less about the reward pool for now. He waited a few days for the undead of the Pyramid of Khafre to finish their first wave of attacks before departing for Gisele.
Gisele had three Pyramids; the most powerful among them was the Great Pyramid of Giza.
As a matter of fact, it was normal for the Great Pyramid of Giza to dispatch their undead when the deathlight was around to attack Cairo together with Khafre’s army. However, the Great Pyramid of Giza had suffered great losses during the battle at Beijiang in China. Khufu had surprisingly behaved himself this time. He did not send even a single undead to attack Cairo.
Cairo should have thanked China for sharing the burden of fending off the terrifying undead army on their behalf. Unfortunately, it was unlikely the people would ever learn about it. Not many people in China knew about the battle, let alone the people in Egypt!
Mo Fan was a lot more at ease after taking care of the Curse. However, when he saw Apas sleeping in the ward, he realized that he was about to be placed under enormous pressure.
Since when was it so difficult to protect an innocent little girl? Sometimes, he wished that humans would just go extinct when he realized how twisted mankind’s beliefs and mindsets could be.
Mo Fan shook his head with a wry smile upon having the thought. Why would he think the same way as the Black Vatican?
Both the Black Vatican and the corrupt authorities deserved to go to Hell. If the whole world was so disgusting, he would walk the right path alone!
He did not need anyone’s worship or respect, nor did he care if most people despised or hated him. He just needed to listen to his own heart as it was cleansed by his own tears!
“Big brother…” a soft voice spoke up.
Her voice immediately dragged Mo Fan out of his thoughts. He put on a smile and patted Apas on the head.
Apas was now bald. Her dark blue hair was eaten away, but it did not necessarily take away her beauty. It actually made her more adorable, together with her delicate and vulnerable look.
“You are going to be fine soon.” Mo Fan was relieved after seeing that the little girl had recovered so swiftly. His beliefs remained firm, too.
Despite being swallowed alive, tortured by the gastric juice, and overwhelmed by fear and helplessness while waiting for her death, Apas’ eyes did not lose their usual glitter when she woke up. Even Mo Fan could not imagine how much of a torture she had gone through, yet she was still living in hope and great anticipation for the world.
Mo Fan felt like everything was worth it when he saw the little girl’s bright eyes.
“Rest here, no one is going to hurt you again,” Mo Fan told her.
“Am I very ugly now?” Apas asked.
Mo Fan chuckled. Were all girls the same? Was that seriously the first thing that crossed their minds after escaping death?
“You’ll be the same again after a week,” Mo Fan promised her.
“Can you visit me before then? I can take care of myself, I’ll eat more food so I can recover as soon as possible…” Apas pleaded like a little kitten.
“I’m leaving the day after tomorrow,” Mo Fan said.
“Where are you going!?” Apas tried to move around in her bed. She was scared that Mo Fan was going to leave her.
“I’m not leaving Egypt; I have something important to do,” Mo Fan told her calmly.
It was going to decide whether a girl like Apas had the right to live in this world. He had to go!
“Mm, I’ll wait for you to come back. You promised me you would teach me magic…” Apas nodded sensibly.
“Sure, from today on, you are my disciple. Not everyone is worthy to be my disciple. First, you must be as good-looking as I am. Second, you must be as tenacious as a cockroach. Last, you must be good at stirring up trouble…” Mo Fan informed her loftily.
Apas giggled after hearing the requirements. Her laughter lasted for a long time…
Fenna was standing outside the room when Mo Fan came out of it, as were Zhao Manyan, Mu Bai, and Heidi.
Heidi was staring into Mo Fan’s eyes, making him feel uneasy. He had no idea when he had stepped on the woman’s tail again.
“Zhao Manyan accidentally told her about the Gate of the Underworld,” Mu Bai answered Mo Fan’s doubtful face.
“What do you mean I accidentally told her? I was having a serious conversation with you, yet you kept raising your brows at me instead of telling me she was behind us. I thought you were interested in my handsome face!” Zhao Manyan protested.
Mo Fan was left speechless.
He did not mind bringing Heidi along when they went to get the Tears of Medusa. They were all pretty good at running away, so their lives were not necessarily in danger.
As for opening the Gate of the Underworld…
They were planning to invade the Great Pyramid of Giza! They were going into the Pyramid!
They had no clue what it was like inside the Pyramid. It was not exaggerating to say they only had a ten percent chance of survival!
“Heidi, you are still young,you’ve haven’t tasted a man before. It’s really not worth it for you to follow us to a place crawling with the dead,” Mo Fan advised her.
“What are you talking about!? What does it have anything to do with you filthy men!?” Heidi blurted out scornfully.
“What I meant was, life is so precious and valuable, you don’t have to court death with us. We are already used to it, so it’s easier for us to turn misfortunes into blessings. However, it’s more likely for a rookie like you to die. You wouldn’t want to turn into a female mummy either, right? It would be bad if you become a problem for Fenna and her army… after all, a woman with an alluring figure wrapped in bandages is seriously going to be a distraction for the men,” Mo Fan rambled on.
“I don’t care what you say, I’ve made up my mind!” Heidi declared.
“How about this? I’ll give Miss Brianca a call and ask her to take you back to school. Aren’t you strange? You kept saying that you didn’t like following us around in the beginning, but you’re the one that doesn’t want to let go now!” Mo Fan challenged her.
“Don’t you dare! I’ll tell Miss Brianca everything. She will most likely go with you all, since she’s going to be so worried!” Heidi shot back.
“Excuse me… I don’t think there’s a need to argue any further, since we do need someone with the Chaos Element inside the Pyramid,” Fenna interrupted them.
“Ah? Is that so? Mu Bai, isn’t your third Element the Chaos Element?” Mo Fan asked absently.
Mu Bai looked at Mo Fan like he was an idiot.
“Give me a day, I’ll see if I can break through to the Super Level. I have been thinking of Awakening the Chaos Element, too,” Mo Fan went on shamelessly.
“You!” Heidi stomped the ground angrily.
