In the white tent there was an insulating body, in which, on the bunks placed in a row, the infected ones lay. The bodies affected by the epidemic were thickly covered with ulcers, and the organisms themselves were extremely dehydrated. No matter how much water the patients drank, the situation did not improve, quite the contrary – this led to the fact that there was more and more pus in their boils.

The insulating body was filled with painful shouts and groans. The epidemic did not spare anyone: here one could meet old men, women, children, and adults. The patients’ eyes were filled with horror in the face of this plague, and only the magicians of the healing element from time to time made a detour, hoping to somehow improve their condition. However, the efforts of even such powerful healers did not give effect. Only the children ran between the beds, completely unaware of what awaits them ahead.

Next to the epidemiological isolator was another temporary tent, which was used by the magicians of the healing element for meetings and discussion. Never before have mages been so powerless before the disease: they could not offer the infected to effective treatment, and the time left to the sick became less and less.

“Mr. Lou, there are only three days left until the moment when the first flood of the infected will turn into a mountain of corpses, similar to what we saw at that time. The total number … “- the voice of a middle-aged man in a white uniform was heard.

Mr. Lou made it clear that he did not want to hear a further report. He knew better than anyone how many people make up the first flood of those infected. He was even more worried that there were even more infected in the second and third streams, and their number continued to grow rapidly. Their approximate number was already difficult to calculate, but one thing was definitely – the epidemic had already reached all parts of the city of Hangzhou.

“Mr. Lou, if we find out the causative agent of the disease, we can develop a cure for the epidemic. And since everyone already knows that the beginning of the plague is connected with the appearance in the public place of that huge snake, isn’t it easier to start research already? ”Said a man in a white uniform.

At that moment, when the man finished speaking, the chairman of the magical court, Tang Zhong, entered the meeting tent. Mr. Lou said nothing, as he also knew that the giant serpent is the guardian spirit of the city.

Together with Tang Zhong, assessor Zhu Meng also entered the marquee, whose view was very concentrated. In his view, it was clear that he had come here to oppose Tang Jun.

“Tang Jun! Do you really want to turn the whole of Hangzhou into a mountain of corpses ?! You just have to sit and do nothing, and then your expectations will come true! You are the enemy of every inhabitant of Hangzhou! I don’t care about anything except solving this epidemic! ”Said Zhu Meng.

Tang Zhong didn’t look relaxed either. All this time he, too, was alarmed only by this plague, hoping to find a way to stop it as soon as possible, therefore his gut was also on the limit.

At that moment, when assessor Zhu Meng was about to say something again, one of the palace bodyguards quickly went inside and said something in his ear.

The assessor’s face changed dramatically, he asked: “Did you get the totem pearl?”

The guard replied quietly: “The subordinates failed the task, you must punish them.”

Zhu Maine’s face was blocked by rage … So many interns were sent to this case, couldn’t they all manage to cope with two people ?!

Li Jin waited until Zhu Meng calmed down a bit, and continued to say: “Mo Fan and Tang Yue have already returned, what will you do?”

“Bring them here, immediately !!!”

After some time, Mo Fan and Tang Yue were brought into the tent. While they were being led there, Mo Fan and Tang Yue went and did not believe their eyes. They could not believe that in just a few days the epidemic would reach such proportions.

Zhu Meng measured the guys with his angry gaze and said in a cold voice: “And you are both good! If I could, I would deal with you right now! Should I take you to the quarantine isolator so that you can see for yourself what consequences this all led ??? ”.

Mo Fan did not answer.

Tang Yue was biting her lip. Everything was happening too fast. In a hurry, they took the totem serpent out of the city, and when they returned, the whole city was already under the influence of the epidemic, not leaving a single resident indifferent. Never in her life had she met a similar phenomenon that could turn a once calm and prosperous city into a place of horror.

Tang Yue pulled out a bottle filled with blood and handed it to Zhu Maen: “It is the blood of the totem, if the reason is in it, then it will help find the antidote.”

Zhu Meng signaled to pass it on to Mr. Lu, who was still waiting for the serpent’s blood to arrive at their laboratory. They had only three days to research.

“Grab and arrest these two,” Zhu Meng gave the decree.

Li Jin approached to lead them away. At that moment, a man in commander’s uniform approached Zhu Meng, saluting him, he whispered something in his ear.

Zhu Meng exclaimed, “What are you talking about?”

Hearing this exclamation of Zhu Maine, everyone else turned sharply to find out what hit the assessor so much.

“We just received this information from the fortress. The situation is emergency there, so we ask the assessor to convene a meeting to assist, ”said the commander.

“Good. I will immediately give the order, ”said Zhu Meng, shaking his head.

At Ping Jing from the palace guard, when he saw that the assessor’s face had changed dramatically, he asked: “The senior assessor, did something happen?”.

“Misfortune never comes alone! That’s for sure – trouble never comes alone !!! ”- answered Zhu Meng with a confused look.

The commander, seeing that the chairman of the magical court and a number of other high-ranking officials are still here, said: “A flock of white magic eagles appeared in the area of the western fortress around Hangzhou. They are mad with hunger and do not react to our attacks in any way, without even thinking about returning to their nesting sites. They rushed to fly to the city … “.

At that moment, Tang Zhong’s face was terrified! He had heard about the eagles living in the western ranges. They were considered very humble animals that meekly live in their lands, and do not show a vivacity similar to other magical animals.

Tang Zhong did not understand what pushed these white eagles to head towards Hangzhou. Sudden attacks by swarms of magical animals are far from common in a well-guarded place like Hangzhou.

“It looks like we stuck it …” said Zhu Meng, confused.

Tang Zhong also frowned, shook his head. This epidemic has turned everything upside down, and now this invasion is just like snow on my head …
