Versatile Mage - Chapter 1594: Infinity Space
Edited by Aelryinth
The empty third chamber had been a great surprise to the group. It meant there was only one chamber left: the chamber with the symbol of an eagle!
They took the right door and headed for the last chamber without taking a rest.
“We shouldn’t be far from the Day and Dusk Compass after this one, right?” Zhao Manyan asked.
“Yes, our job is done once we turn the pointer on the Compass,” Mo Fan said.
“That’s good to know; we can finally leave this place after we’re done with the last chamber!” Zhao Manyan let out a relieved sigh.
“What did I tell you? When the boat reaches the mountain, it will go straight with the current!” Mo Fan proclaimed.
“Indeed!” Zhao Manyan nodded.
Mu Bai rolled his eyes while listening to their conversation. How was the boat supposed to go straight with the current if there was a mountain in front of it!?
As the new chamber was about to show up, everyone prayed that the chamber was empty, just like the one before. It would mark a happy end to their adventure!
However, was the Great Pyramid of Giza really that easy to overcome? Either way, it was still the most dangerous golden tomb in the world. The group was shocked by how spacious the last chamber was as soon as they set foot inside it!
It was no chamber; it was the whole sky!
The chamber did not have a ceiling. There was no wall apart from the passage they had come from. If the floor had not been built with bricks like the previous chambers, they might even think they had left the Pyramid and arrived in a valley outside!
“Do any of you see a sarcophagus?” Meos asked.
“I don’t even see a door, let alone a sarcophagus!” Zhao Manyan answered cautiously.
The chamber was oddly huge. It was difficult to tell to what extent the space had been compressed. Only a Space Mage close to reaching the Forbidden Level could construct such a space!
“What do we do now? Do we go inside or turn back?” Shreev struggled to decide.
“This chamber… forget it, if this place is a chamber, we are living in funerary urns instead… I believe the space might be empty too…” Mo Fan ventured.
There was nothing but golden-brown bricks along the floor within their field of view. The spacious area seemed to be empty. There was no sign of the guardian that was supposed to be related to an eagle.
“How about this? The two of you with the Space Element take a look around. The rest of us will wait here. If anything happens, it’s easier for you to escape with your Space Element,” Shreev suggested.
The others immediately looked at Mo Fan and Heidi. The two exchanged glances with one another.
It was the only viable option under the circumstances. The two of them would scout the area first. If the chamber was empty, they could just look for the door and proceed to their destination. If there was any danger, they would make their way back to the passage.
Mo Fan bravely took a few steps forward. He reached his hand out to signal Heidi to grab his hand so they could move together. Heidi ignored his gesture and boldly traveled a few dozen meters ahead. Mo Fan had no choice but to stick his hand into his pocket and follow her.
“Look out, it might be an infinity space!” Heidi soon noticed that something was not right.
“What’s an infinity space?” Mo Fan asked naturally.
“If you place a mirror in front of you and another mirror behind you, you will discover a series of reflections in the mirror that appear to recede to infinity. The chamber isn’t as spacious as we think. It only feels that way because of the endless reflections,” Heidi explained.
“I sort of get it…” Mo Fan nodded. He did not really try to understand it. The principles of the Space Element were the most complicated ones to understand!
“Take a look behind you,” Heidi said.
Mo Fan looked behind him and noticed how far Zhao Manyan, Mu Bai, and the others were from him. They were like a few tiny dots in his eyes.
Mo Fan was quite surprised. He and Heidi had only traveled around five hundred meters away, yet the others looked like they were a few kilometers away!
“That’s the effects of an infinity space. If you are in a confined space surrounded by mirrors, you will feel like the space has enlarged significantly. This place is made up of several infinity spaces. We might only be looking at a distance of a hundred meters, but because of the continuous reflections, the distance feels like a thousand meters to us,” Heidi said.
“Oh, oh, I think I understand now,” Mo Fan nodded.
Mo Fan was about to keep going when he noticed Heidi stopping abruptly. She was staring into the sky.
Mo Fan followed the direction she was looking into and saw a golden dot. It was as tiny as a sand particle. He might not have seen it if he was not born with good eyesight.
“I think it’s time for us to leave!” Heidi said with a weird expression.
“We’re leaving? Can you already see what it is? Why are we in a rush to leave?” Mo Fan said.
“Feel free to stay until you can see it clearly,” Heidi did not waste any time further. She turned around and ran back towards Zhao Manyan and the others.
Mo Fan was utterly confused. When he looked up again, he noticed that the tiny dot had grown to the size of a thumb.
Mo Fan subconsciously thought the tiny dot was at least a few dozen kilometers away at first glance. He believed it was not too late to leave until he could get a closer look at it. To his surprise, it was suddenly a lot closer within an instant!
Mo Fan was still wondering what the golden dot was when he noticed the thing enlarging significantly. It was now as big as a bird. He could see it beating its wings, lifting its gold claws, turning its head, and its sharp gaze!
Mo Fan still had some brains, and realized it was better for him to start running. Heidi had no reason to lie to him!
He started running, but he had only taken a few steps when a strong gust swept at him from behind. When he looked back again, he was shocked to see an enormous golden eagle around eight kilometers away stirring up a huge storm as it flew across the sky. It had completely blocked off his entire field of view. The whole place had darkened as if a disastrous storm was about to happen!
“Holy crap, how is it so quick!?” Mo Fan yelled.
“You don’t understand how the infinity mirrors work, do you!?” Heidi scolded him.
“It…it’s actually very close to us, right?”
“Just shut up and run! It’s a very strong creature!” Heidi shouted.
