Several people immediately ran to the door.



    If they hurried over, maybe they could save the fat man.


    It’s still a human life, after all.


    Only the thin monkey was still standing there, murmuring: “I- I am too…”


    As soon as the players ran to the door, they met the village elder brother who was dragging the black dog just now.


    Chen Tian asked, “Where’s the black dog?”


    The village elder brother said, “It’s already brought to the slaughterhouse.


    The village elder brother stretched out his arms to stop them.
“What are you doing? The wedding is about to begin.”


    Chen Tian and Chen Qing were more eager to save people than the black robe and the others, but they didn’t know what to say, saying that the black dog was the fat man.
Would the NPC villagers believe it?




    Chen Tian said: “We don’t want to eat dog meat, and we don’t want that black dog to die.”


    The elder brother smiled, “Didn’t you say that the black dog ate someone? Isn’t it good for the black dog to die?”


    The villager elder brother’s smile was a normal puzzled smile, but his words made several people feel chills in their hearts.


    Yes, it was they who wrongly accused the black dog of eating people, so the villagers beat the black dog, who might be the fat man, and sent him to the slaughterhouse.


    To a certain extent, they were the ones who harmed the fat man.
Thinking of the way the black dog looked at them in the end, they all felt very unhappy.




    Especially Chen Tian.
His face turned pale when he heard what the villagers said.


    He was the first to guess that the black dog ate the fat man.


    People in this village have always been warm and hospitable, with a smile on their faces.
At this time, the elder brother’s smile disappeared and said earnestly: “Someone in our village is getting married.
Instead of blessing the couple, you want to see an animal?”


    Players who entered the game had been systematically educated on the bus to abide by the rules of the game.
Villagers are game NPCs.
Players knew that resisting NPCs would lead to no good end, so it caught them in a dilemma.




    At this moment, Ning Su walked up to the elder brother, tearing away the false appearance, and said bluntly: “You can’t eat human flesh.
Human flesh is poisonous.”





    The elder brother said to him gently: “Of course, we don’t eat human flesh.”     


   He turned to the players and said, “I promise you, we won’t kill that black dog.
Get in the car and go to the wedding.”



    The players felt relieved and did not take the risk of defying an NPC.     


    Players boarded the car one after another.     


  When the black robe was about to get into the car, his assistant, a player from the Yinhua Club, pulled him and pointed to the thin monkey, who was still muttering in the yard with a dazed expression.     



    “Trash!” The black robe sneered.
“Someone call him, and if he doesn’t obey, don’t bother with him anymore.”     


    They sat in the last car, and there was no one else in the car when they boarded.
The assistant frowned and said: “After one night, there are few useful clues.
The second-level decryption is really not that simple.”


    “It’s really not that simple.
I found an interesting thing though.
The day we moved into the villa, the time displayed on the monitoring screen was five years ago.”     


    The assistant was taken aback.
“Five years ago? Is this dungeon set to happen five years ago, or was it five years ago when we entered the game and settled in Huaiyang Village?”     


    The black robe smiled and glanced at him meaningfully.
“What do you think?”     




    Chen Tian and Chen Qing sat in the first car.
Chen Qing said: “Brother, don’t take it to heart, you are not to blame for this matter.”     


    Chen Tian pressed his tired forehead and said “Mmm”.     



    Chen Qing frowned and said, “Now the direction is even more uncertain.”


   Chen Tian said: “Now the clues are getting more and more confusing.
Let’s go back to the original question and start by investigating why this village has money. Yes, as well as the background of the groom’s family.”


    Chen Qing: “Okay!”






    Ning Su, Zhu Shuangshuang and Su Xiangsheng sat in the middle car, and as soon as they got in the car, Su Xiangsheng told Zhu Shuangshuang what happened last night.
Zhu Shuangshuang was also in a trance after hearing it.


    Her eyes slowly moved to Ning Su’s pocket.
She didn’t know if it was her illusion.
She seemed to see the eyeball in the pocket move.




    She rubbed her eyes and indeed saw it moving.


    Ning Su slapped his pocket with a “pop”.


    Zhu Shuangshuang: “…”


    Her eyes suddenly hurt.
“Take it easy.
Don’t destroy it.
Is that really that kid’s eyeball?”


    Ning Su said: “I’ll find out once we passed by the slaughterhouse.
I guess the kid in the bathroom last night is the kid I saw in the slaughterhouse yesterday.”




    They were the same.
They were all children of walking age, but they crawled on the ground, just like an animal.


    The convoy drove to the groom’s house and passed the slaughterhouse again.
This time, it wasn’t just the three and the others who were paying attention, but all the players were closely watching the slaughterhouse.


    Other players want to see if the black dog was there, and what the slaughterhouse was like.




    And when the car was about to pass by the slaughterhouse, Ning Su’s eyes fell precisely on the dark room in the corner.


    The child crawled over again, and there was only a small cluster of light left on his face, which was still a very faint.


    The corners of Ning Su’s mouth turned up slightly, and he patted the eye in his pocket.


    The car stopped outside the groom’s house.


    The bride and groom were standing at the door when they got out of the car.


    The couple changed into a Chinese-style wedding dress, and the phoenix crown made of pure gold on the bride’s head shone in the sun.


    When the two looked at each other inadvertently, the smiles on their faces were sweet and happy, as bright as the morning sun.


    The groom saw the bride’s skirt getting a little dust, and knelt on the ground to pat her clean, then looked at the bride’s feet, raised his head and asked her, “Are you tired? Shall I get flat shoes for you?”




    The bride pursed her lips and smiled.
“No, I will wear beautiful high-heeled shoes at the wedding.”


    The groom smiled dotingly.


    He looked at the bride with gentle eyes, and said to the bride frankly: “Our place is a bit feudal, and the wedding ceremony is cumbersome and elaborate.
Thank you for your hard work today.”


    “What are you talking about? This is our wedding.” The bride grabbed the groom’s arm and smiled coquettishly, “Haven’t you heard of the saying ‘the more you pay attention, the more you care’? How can I not work so hard?”



    The groom and the bride looked at each other laughing, the bride’s face tinted with a thin layer of red.



    The bridesmaid smiled and said: “Really, you two are throwing dog food again.
I can’t take it anymore.
Come in quickly, so we can start.” (*1)



    They decorated the wedding hall magnificently.
Everywhere was full of festive colors, deep red peonies were in full bloom.
The candlesticks had golden engravings that symbolized wealth and auspiciousness.
There were many people standing in the big wedding hall.


    Soon they found out what the groom said about the cumbersome feudal ways and why he told the bride that she worked hard today.
