Chapter 77: The Consequences of Being Isolated
Hearing Belina’s fawning, Kanasan’s expression was cold and indifferent, and she was unwilling to pay attention to her. She coldly said, “Don’t listen to me. If you had listened to me, your hands would be the same as mine now. Look at how good you are now. You’re not injured at all. You’re all white and tender. How good-looking!”
As she spoke, she raised her rotten left hand. There didn’t seem to be much flesh left, and it carried a stench.
Belina was startled. She couldn’t help but wrinkle her nose when she smelled the stench on her hand, but she still pretended to be calm and said, “Kanasan, you’re too strong. Let me bandage you up.”
Kanasan scoffed. “You looked at my hand and think it’s disgusting, so you’re asking me to bandage it up!” Kanasan glared fiercely at Belina. “Don’t follow me. I think you’re disgusting too!”
Belina froze on the spot. The first ally she tried to reel in had rejected her. Then, she looked at Ajay, Madeline, Weston, and Gardner. Just when she was looking for the next target, Madeleine suddenly shouted, “Gardner! I found a medical box.”
She saw Madeleine standing in the corner, holding a white box with a red cross in his hand. However, the box was dirty, as if it had not been used for a long time.
“Bring it over for me to see,” Gardner said.
Six people surrounded him. Gardner opened the box and saw that there were surgical instruments inside: scalpels, surgical scissors, vascular pliers, right-angle pliers, triangular needles, abdominal retractors, and even some surgical instruments for craniotomy. There were also some simple antibiotics.
“Gardner, what are these things for?” Ajay looked at Gardner.
Gardner revealed a crazy and twisted smile and said, “At this time, I know what the Death Inquisitor wants to do. If we want to open the lock, we have to take something out of our bodies.”
“Ah? What do you mean?”
“It won’t be like the last live broadcast, where she was forced to dissect herself, right?” Madeleine widened her eyes and asked in horror.
“That’s not the case. No one will die in this round. What we need are things that won’t kill us, such as eyes, ears, nose, gallbladder, appendix, nipples, teeth, and so on,” Gardner said. He looked at Belina.
Belina lowered her head in fear.
Weston asked, “Gardner, is what you said true or false? Will no one die in this round?”
“Why would I lie to you? You can go over and take a look yourself. That is a human body password lock. After placing the various organs of the human body into the corresponding shape, the lock can be opened. I have seen this thing in a magazine before. I did not expect it to really exist. Now, it is used on us.”
Gardner had a twisted smile on his face. As he spoke, he kept shaking the retractor in his hand.
A few people immediately surrounded him. At this time, the camera in the live broadcast room gave a clear close-up. Sure enough, on that lock, there were really many grooves of different shapes. Some were like a nose, some were like teeth, and some were like eyes. Under the grooves were various mechanisms. Only by putting in the matching parts could one unlock the human body lock and finally open the door.
“The judge can always find something new that we don’t know about!”
“This prop is so cool. It looks like something out of a sci-fi novel!”
“Why do I feel like Belina is going to die?”
“Hahaha! I have the same thought as you. Belina is dead for sure!”
“Belina is dead for sure + 1!”
“The judge’s design is too amazing. Either the hand is disabled, or he is waiting to be hated by others!”
“What if they don’t knock down the glassware? What then?”
“Even if no one can get their hands on the glassware, after they push away the iron rod, they will have to move the glassware away if they want to sit down. When all their hands are corroded, they will realize that they don’t need to cripple their hands at all. Do you think their spirits will collapse?”
“That’s right. The design of the judge is completely flawless unless they can find that the glassware can be moved away from the beginning. Unfortunately, no one can do it! They can’t compete with the judge’s strategy of psychological misdirection!”
“The Death Inquisitor is definitely a top-notch master of psychology!”
While the audience in the live broadcast room were discussing how powerful Jack was, they had already begun to predict the next situation.
In the office of the New York Police Department, Task Force Zero…
Ross and the others had the same opinion as the audience in the live broadcast room.
“Belina found the loophole of the Death Inquisitor in the first round. I don’t know whether it’s good or bad, but she’s now isolated and hostile. She’s even more dangerous than the others. I’m afraid she’s really going to die!”
“If she’s really dead, then I guess the others will all die in the third level!” Monica said.
“You mean the third level will be a large-scale team-cooperation game?” Ross asked.
“Yes, it must be. Don’t you think the game in the second level is like a trap? Even if the game in the second level has no loophole, it’s not that difficult. At most, one person can sacrifice a little to get through it. But do you think they will share equally with such a group of people? This is the real trap that the Death Judge designed in this round of the game! They would definitely focus their attacks on one person, and now that Belina is isolated, they would want to attack Belina. Belina is dead for sure!”
Ross sighed and said, “Then we can only hope that they are not too selfish. Otherwise, there will be no survivors this time!”
They looked back at the big screen.
At this time, the six people in the live broadcast room understood the rules of the game.
Gardner said, “On whom should we start?”
They looked at each other, and their eyes quickly focused on Belina.
“Belina, right now, you’re the only one who isn’t injured. Your condition is better than ours. Why don’t we start with you?” Kanasan said.
Seeing the five people staring at her, Belina felt like she was a piece of meat waiting to be butchered, but she didn’t dare to refuse.
“Okay. A human body lock requires a total of seven items. There are six of us. You guys choose five items first, and I’ll do the remaining two. Is that okay?” Belina suggested.
Kanasan smiled and said, “You’re really great. You’re so selfless. Why don’t you donate all seven items?”
All of them laughed. Their laughter was very dark and very strange. They sounded very sinister and sarcastic.
Belina was so scared that she took a step back. The expression on her face became stiff and scared. Their eyes and their laughter made her feel very uneasy and scared. She felt like she was being stared at by a group of hyenas.
