Chapter 164 The Color-Changing Tree

The originally black tree turned snow-white in an instant . Everyone was shocked and retreated warily .

However, other than turning snow-white, the tree did not undergo any other changes, nor was there any danger .

After a while, the white tree gradually turned black again, as if nothing had happened .

“This tree is a little strange . It’s clearly a black tree, so why did it suddenly turn white?” Li Xuan was extremely curious as he held a wooden stick and stabbed it a few times .

However, the black tree remained black without any changes from before .

Zhou Wen aimed his mysterious phone at the black tree and the camera function immediately locked onto it . Clearly, it was the tree that had caused the mysterious phone to vibrate .

He pressed the shutter button and the phone immediately entered the picture-taking interface .

Quite a number of people were using their cell phones to illuminate the area as well as taking pictures of the black tree . Zhou Wen’s actions didn’t seem too out of the ordinary .

As there was no danger, someone boldly shook the black tree . In the next second, the black tree had turned into a ruby-like color . It was like a gem in the shape of a tree, shimmering with a dazzling glow of riches .

The person shaking the tree was a girl . This scene gave her a shock and she hurriedly retreated .

Just like before, nothing dangerous happened . The red gem tree gradually lost its luster and soon returned to its dark appearance .

“This is really strange . ” Li Xuan seemed to have thought of something as he carefully shook the black tree with his hand . Indeed, the black tree had changed color again . However, it was different from the previous few colors . This time, the black tree had turned golden .

“It seems like the color will be different depending on the person,” Li Xuan said .

“Let me give it a try . ” Everyone was curious as they attempted to shake the black tree .

Indeed, just as Li Xuan said, when different people touched the black tree, it would transform into another color . Even if it changed to red, the red itself was a different shade .

“Old Zhou, try it too,” Li Xuan said to Zhou Wen .

“There’s no need . I don’t like to take risks . It’s best you don’t touch it . ” Zhou Wen shook his head . Before figuring out what the black tree was, he was unwilling to touch it .

The phone was still in the middle of downloading, and the download speed seemed much slower than before .

After the crowd had their fun, they realized that the black tree didn’t have any other function other than changing colors . Soon, they were bored with it .

As there was nothing else here, everyone left Death City and continued exploring Restriction City .

The mysterious phone was still in the middle of downloading . It didn’t finish even when the club activity ended and everyone left together .

With the screen constantly downloading, Zhou Wen had no way of gaming . After returning to his dorm, he had a good nap-a rather rare opportunity .

Ever since he had advanced to the Legendary stage, the feeling of having sleep paralysis hadn’t happened again . Zhou Wen had a good nap and ended up waking the next morning . After washing up and eating, he realized that the download had been completed when he unlocked the mysterious phone . There was a tree-shaped icon on the home screen .

However, the cartoon-styled icon looked different from the black tree . There were three words “Dead Man Tree” written below .

Zhou Wen was somewhat curious as to why a tree had an instance dungeon . He immediately tapped on the tree’s icon .

After launching the app, the scene turned black . In the dark space, there was a tree-a black one . However, in the dark cavern, one could clearly see the tree’s appearance .

Apart from its cartoon-styled appearance, it was the black tree they had encountered in Death City .

The blood-colored avatar stood in front of it, but apart from the black tree, there was nothing around it . Zhou Wen was momentarily at a loss as to what the instance dungeon was for .

He summoned the Silver-Winged Flying Ant and let it fly towards the black tree . He then attacked the black tree with Magical Needle which stabbed into it but failed to penetrate it . He wasn’t able to damage the black tree at all either .

The tree didn’t react and remained standing quietly in the darkness .

Zhou Wen hesitated for a moment before deciding to let the blood-colored avatar personally touch the tree to see if there would be any abnormal changes .

However, Zhou Wen found it strange that after the blood-colored avatar touched it, the color of the black tree did not change . It was still black, completely the same as before .

Strange, why didn’t the color change? Zhou Wen remembered that in Death City, the black tree had undergone a change in color when people touched it . Nothing like what had happened to him was experienced in game .

Is it me or is it a problem with the game? Zhou Wen was momentarily unsure of what the tree was for, nor did he understand the use of the instance dungeon . All he could do was ignore it for the time being . After quitting the game, he logged into other dungeons to hunt monsters .

Now, Zhou Wen only grinded two types of monsters . One was mutated Legendary monsters since only they could drop stats crystals above 18 points which were of use to him .

Another was Epic creatures that could drop stats crystals that exceeded 20 points . They were similarly useful to Zhou Wen .

However, Epic creatures were too powerful . He was no match for the few Epic creatures Zhou Wen encountered in-game, so all he could do was search for the mutated Legendary creatures .

In a room at the An family’s residence in Luoyang, An Tianzuo had recently returned home .

“Tianzuo, has the situation around Luoyang been very bad recently?” Ouyang Lan asked worriedly .

“It’s not that bad . Apart from the problematic matters at the Qihe River, there aren’t too many problems in other places,” said An Tianzuo with a smile . “Mom, don’t worry . As long as I’m in Luoyang, I won’t let those dimensional creatures invade Luoyang . ”

Ouyang Lan nodded slightly and sighed before saying, “The Holy Land qualification competition is just around the corner . If Zhou Wen goes alone, I won’t be at ease . Let Ah Sheng accompany him, right?”

“Mom, are you really letting Zhou Wen go? Aren’t you going to reconsider?” An Tianzuo frowned .

Ouyang Lan shook her head and said, “I know what you’re thinking . However, Xiaojing has a congenital illness . It would be terrifying if something were to happen to her during her acceptance of the special physique . I don’t want Little Jing to take any risks . Do you understand?”

“Understood . ” An Tianzuo added, “But I believe that Little Jing can do it . ”

“There’s no need to elaborate on this matter . I’ve already made up my mind . Furthermore, the nomination has been changed to Zhou Wen . There’s no way to change it . ” Ouyang Lan stopped An Tianzuo from continuing .

An Tianzuo remained silent . Although he didn’t agree with Ouyang Lan’s decision, he would not go against her wishes . He had always been a filial son .

Ouyang Lan sighed lightly . “Besides, Zhou Wen might not be willing to go . He has no blood relationship with the two of you, but his temper is extraordinarily similar . He’s always so stubborn . ”

“It’s different . He’s stubborn while we are confident,” said An Tianzuo proudly .

Ouyang Lan only looked at An Tianzuo and smiled without saying another word .
