Chapter 40: The Four Who Separated
After half an hour of hard work by the three of them, the stone wall was still intact. The plan of the three of them meeting up had failed.
Panting heavily, Davis threw the broken longsword on the ground. “Damn it! What the hell is this place?”
Then he raised the flashlight and began to look at the dark ahead. After a few steps, he found that they were in a bottomless tunnel.
He immediately shouted, “Rayen! Do you see a road ahead? I found a tunnel here!”
At the same time, Rayen finished observing the terrain and immediately replied, “Yes! I have one here too!” Then he raised his voice again, “Let’s go on both sides! See you at the end of the tunnel!”
It was not because they were so brave and quick to judge, but because there was no way out at the moment, and they had no choice but to continue forward.
After the agreement was made, Davis and Powell raised their automatic rifles and turned on the lights on them, heading toward the tunnel.
Rayen’s side was obviously more troublesome because Britney was still crying.
It was obvious that the other party was terrified!
Moreover, it was their own country’s fighter planes that attacked her. Anyone would be so confused.
“No, no! Why would the kingdom’s fighter planes attack me?! This is impossible…” Britney said to herself, like a mental patient.
Rayen did not pay attention to her immediately. Instead, he began to check his equipment and ammunition.
After the bombardment just now, they had lost a large number of weapons and supplies. Now, Rayen only had a loaded pistol, a K-40 automatic rifle, and 80 bullets, as well as a bag of disgusting beef jerky and an engineer shovel.
He was not sure whether such equipment would be able to deal with the following unknown.
But now, he could only move forward and shovel the engineer at his waist, he went up to Britney, who was still in grief, and said, “Enough! Now is not the time for you to be willful! If you don’t want to be chased, quickly leave with me. If the people chasing you block the end of the tunnel ahead of time, it will be bad! We have to hurry!”
Under his pull, Britney stood up in a daze, and her body swayed slightly as she followed behind him.
Di… Di… Di…
With the help of the light from the rifle, the four people who had been on the two roads had unknowingly traveled for half an hour.
The tunnel was very quiet as if there were no living things.
The water droplets on the top kept dripping on the surface of Rayen’s military boots.

When he saw a small pool, Rayen stopped.
But when he turned his head to look at the light, he did not see Davis and Powell.
“You didn’t find the pool?” Rayen suspected that it was too dark for Davis and the others to see.
Davis immediately replied, “Pool? Damn it! We didn’t see it! I’m dying of thirst!”
Hearing this, Rayen found out in despair that the two tunnels did not lead to a single place!
“Damn it!” He threw his helmet on the ground in annoyance, and the vibration sent echoes back into the cave.
On the other side, Davis also realized the problem, he forced a smile and shouted, “It’s okay, buddy! I’ve been to countless underground tunnels with an expedition team! Believe me, although the middle is different, the end will still be the same exit!”
Rayen, who heard it clearly, smiled bitterly and said, “What job in the world have you not done? Are you always so optimistic? Are you really so sure that there will be a unified exit at the end?”
“Hahaha…” Davis laughed again, “Of course! I swear on the ancient gods! Let’s go separately! I will take good care of Powell! See you later!”
After Davis’ optimistic voice fell, Rayen could clearly hear the sound of the other party trotting away. It was obvious that they had already set off.
He sighed and said in a low voice, “Good luck, buddy…”
Since things had come to this, he no longer thought about it. He got up and went to the side of the pool, putting the kettle on his waist inside.
Then, he guzzled.
After wiping the water, he walked to the dazed Britney, handed her a refilled kettle, and said, “Drink some. The water is very sweet.”
But Britney, who was sitting on the ground and hugging her legs, looked at him with tears in her eyes, with an unspeakable grievance in her eyes.
Rayen naturally knew why the other party was like this. After all, no one would have thought that their allies would attack their own people!
Moreover, it was their own country’s princess!
All of this was really too unbelievable.
Rayen patted the dust on his body and said, “There must be something wrong here, but it doesn’t matter. I will guarantee your safety. When you go back, you can ask again.” After all, the other party was his captive in exchange for a bright future, he did not want anything to happen to this woman.
But Britney was still crying, and it was a little difficult for her to walk.
She raised her head and said with a pitiful look, “You, can you carry me? My foot is hurt….”
