Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After moving further and approaching the final cell door, Mo Fan, Lingling, and Ozawa heard a voice that sounded like a foghorn.
Mo Fan and Lingling panicked.
They had arrived at the final cell door. Even if their presence were discovered by others after entering through the cell door, they would have, at the very least, assessed the situation inside and figured out what happened to the East Guardian Towers,
But if they were stopped here, they could not do anything.
“Officer Ozawa, you seemed to have forgotten the rules. Those who enter the East Guardian Towers have to report to the Chief beforehand, especially if it is a new person.” The leader of the Guard Regiment raised his hand to remind the guard at the final cell door to keep watch.
Mo Fan made the decision to storm the towers after noticing that things did not appear to be going well.
They had come to this point. If they dragged on any longer, the Red Demon would ascend and take action!
“Sir, are you doubting me?” Ozawa shot a glance at Mo Fan, telling him covertly to not do anything yet.
“Why will I doubt you, Ozawa? It’s just that we must follow the rules. The girl can naturally enter to deliver and pick up the food after three months.” The head of the Guard Regiment smiled.
Lingling had disguised herself. It was obvious that the head of the Guard Regiment did not recognize her.
“Sir, I don’t get what you were trying to say. I handed over the report to the Chief three months ago. I wonder if your mind is somewhere else, or if I fail to follow the rules. Please find it out from the Chief. Additionally, sir, you should correct the young guards stationed at the third cell door. It’s disrespectful for the guards to whistle at a female cook like delinquent boys, even though the kitchen is tiny and unnoticeable.” Officer Ozawa asserted.
“Did something like that happen?” The head of the Guard Regiment asked one of the elderly captains next to him.
“O-Officer Ozawa, my subordinates were just joking around. After all, standing watch at night was incredibly dull. Please accept my apology,” said the elderly captain.
“Sir, I still have other important matters to handle. Please open the door now,” said Ozawa.
“You mentioned that you’ve handed the report over to the Chief, but I haven’t received it.”
“That is your issue. If I fail to hand the report over to the Chief, I’ll bear the consequences. However, if you failed to read it or misplaced the document, you must formally apologize to the Chief,” said Officer Ozawa.
The Guard Regiment’s commander paused. Finally, he motioned with his hand for the guard at the final cell door to let them in.
Mo Fan and Lingling breathed a sigh of relief after entering through the East Guardian Towers’ prison corridor. They gave Ozawa a thumbs up.
Ozawa was thankfully assertive enough. Otherwise, they probably wouldn’t be able to go into the towers. Even though Mo Fan was unlikely to be trapped inside the East Guardian Towers, he certainly could not see the things he was looking for.
“This way. I remembered the chief used to say that he heard some strange sound in the ninth prison corridor,” said Ozawa.
Mo Fan and Lingling followed Ozawa to the ninth prison corridor. Mo Fan trapped the guards who pursued them in the Chaos Compartment. They followed the usual path.
When they reached the ninth prison corridor, Mo Fan pushed the food cart and heard a loud “clanking” sound from the large iron door. It sounded as if someone was knocking on the iron door frantically.
Mo Fan froze for a second in shock. He stood on his tiptoes to see the situation inside the prison.
There was only a small window inside the prison, and it was sealed off with iron wires. When Mo Fan looked inside, a face appeared in front of the window suddenly. He stared at Mo Fan begrudgingly!
The face was full of dirty beard. He had a large nose and thick lips. The prisoner looked like a middle-aged homeless man. He did not look anything special at a single glance, but Mo Fan stared at him for a very long time.
Officer Ozawa first gave the prisoner little thought. But he was so astonished that his mouth dropped when he focused on the prisoner’s filthy face!
The prisoner was none other than the middle-aged chef!
For more than ten years, the middle-aged chef had been preparing meals for the guards at the East Guardian Towers. In addition, it was the same person Mo Fan had been impersonating when he used the Eye of Deception!
‘What was going on?!’
Mo Fan could not regain his composure even after a while.
He had taken a group photo with “himself” not long ago. This time, he discovered another “him” within the prison after disguising himself as a middle-aged chef!
If this was the middle-aged chef, who had Mo Fan attacked in the West Guardian Towers? There were now three middle-aged chefs at the present!
“Go, go, go! Let’s continue forward.” Lingling urged them.
The prison’s middle-aged chef went into a frenzy that made him want to charge outside and rip Mo Fan apart. However, the middle-aged chef was just an ordinary man. He was trapped inside the jail, so he could not possibly escape. But it was obvious that he was quite pissed off at Mo Fan!
Mo Fan and his group continued to walk forward. They soon arrived at the “soul-sucking” prison. The prison consumed the Mages’ magic and soul power, turning them into common people so that they could not use magic to break free despite being trapped in just a simple sort of prison.
As they moved forward at Lingling’s urging, they were astounded by what they saw!
It was the four chiefs—Katana Mochizuki, Tegami Fujikata, and the Chief Shigekyo…
Aside from the military general Takuichi, the three chiefs of the East Guardian Towers were being held inside the prison.
Then who were the three people in the emergency meeting just a few hours ago?
“Ozawa, is that you?” Chief Shigekyo got up from the prison and lunged at the door with delight.
However, the next moment, Chief Shigekyo seemed to have realized something. He appeared distressed and sat down gloomily.
“Chief, you…” Ozawa felt as if his head was about to explode.
‘What exactly is going on?!’
“Ozawa, I believed that you were the only one who wouldn’t be affected by the Evil Gang even if everyone in the Twin Guardian Towers were. But I didn’t expect you to join them anyway. I’ve a poor sense of judgment.” Chief Shigekyo exhaled deeply. His face was partially hidden by his long, unruly hair.
Even so, Ozawa clearly recognized the prisoner. The prisoner was indeed Chief Shikeyon!
He recently spoke with Chief Shigekyo. He warned Ozawa that there was a serious threat to the Twin Guardian Towers. But why was Chief Shigekyo suddenly locked up here? His disorganized appearance made it obvious that he had been a prisoner for quite some time.
“Chief, what’s going on? What the hell is happening?” When Ozawa clutched the cell door, the potent forbidden system nearly electrocuted him.
“Aren’t you aware of it?” Chief Shigekyo walked up to Ozawa and gave him a bewildered look. Chief Shigekyo then glanced at Mo Fan and Lingling.
It took some time before Mo Fan and Lingling returned to their senses. They removed their disguises and revealed their true identity.
At that moment, Tegami Fujikata and Katana Mochizuki stood up. They recognized Mo Fan.
“Mo Fan! Mo Fan!”
“It’s really you! Oh, thank goodness!” Tegami Fujikata and Katana Mochizuki cried out in excitement.
