The Imperial Tomb.
Statues … Inside, everything was filled with statues. All of them were made of stone, it seemed that their surface was as soft and smooth as girl’s skin.
And the most important thing is that all these statues were fragile and graceful statues of women. The poses and expressions of their faces differed: someone had a bowed head, someone was standing in a bow, someone was greeting you, someone was smiling. Passing by them, it feels like the emperor really left his beautiful wives to meet the guests coming here.
And to show that these women truly love the emperor, there were no clothes on the statues. This unprecedented beauty of their bodies drove crazy … It was hard to believe that they were just stone statues.
The faces of Liu Zhu and Su Xiao Luo turned red when they saw these statues, the faces of Mo Fang, Zhang Xiao Hou and Fang Gu were also written awkwardly. This emperor really had a passion for collecting, including statues of these women. Each of them had its own beauty and charm.
– Monkey, which one do you like? – Mo Fan poked Zhang Xiao Hou in the side, quietly asking.
– Mo Fan, my head is now completely different. I want to quickly get to the imperial throne. In the end, people are waiting for us … – Zhang Xiao Hou said seriously.
– And …? Which one do you like? – Mo Fan loved to joke in difficult times, because even at such a time it was impossible to stop primitive human fantasies.
– Well … – Zhang Xiao Hou’s face turned red, he said in a whisper: “I like that girl on the side”
Mo Fan glanced at Su Xiao Luo, and involuntarily smiled.
Again beautiful sculptures, again perfect appearance, incomparable facial features. But in the end, it’s all a mountain of inanimate sculptures. How beautiful these girls are able to touch human hearts!
– Here is not like in the gallery, what are you going, going and not beginning to be seen? – not holding back, asked Su Xiao Luo.
There were a lot of sculptures arranged in two rows. And each of them looked different. As if they had entered that endless gallery again …
– Oh, there is still a little bit. – Mo Fan pointed forward, making it clear that there are no more statues ahead.
Mages went on their way. Indeed, the sculpture was no longer visible. Mo Fan Fang and Zhang Xiao Hou were different moods. Zhang Xiao Hou quickly glanced at the sculptures and did not even dare to look at Liu Zhu who was walking beside him. But Mo Fan was not at all embarrassed. This is just an artistic goal. People at least in the tombs, even in other places can not stop striving for beauty. Otherwise, what would be the difference between people and salted fish?
– What is the black crap ahead? Zhang Xiao Hou, who was leading the way, suddenly asked.
– No road? – Phan Gu is dumbfounded.
The magicians continued on their way, discovering a gradually narrowing stone surface, with darkness on both sides. It seemed that they were gradually going to the edge of the abyss.
The black hurricane howled, circling nonstop on both sides of this abyss. It seemed to the magicians that as soon as they took a step forward, they would immediately fall into the deepest abyss.
Zhang Xiao Hou – magician with an element of wind. He wanted to go explore what was going on around them. But very quickly came back in a panic. An indescribable fear was read on his face: “This is a very strong wind created by an eminent emperor. He can really blow us away! ”
The black whirlwind made his way to the bones. It seemed as if countless knives were dancing in the air. If everything is really the same as Zhang Xiao Hou said, except for this steep cliff, where you can sit for a while, the rest of the black space is deadly dangerous territory!
– Ahead and the truth can not see anything …. Hey, as if there is a bridge! – Liu Zhu had good eyesight, she immediately happily told everyone that she had seen.
No road around the wild wind. If there was no bridge ahead, they would feel helpless. And now there is an arched bridge at the end of this cliff. It is not clear why they did not see this white bridge before!
This arched bridge was not the one under which the river passed, it was a majestic bridge soaring to the sky. The white-gray bridge was like a soaring water dragon, which flew into impenetrable darkness.
There were ten bridges in the shape of a water dragon; it was impossible to see where they began. Though Zhang Xiao Hou spoke about the deadly wind in which the knives danced. But this bridge seemed to be beyond the destructive force of the wind …
In short, if the magicians wanted to continue their journey, they needed to cross this bridge.
– Come on, there is no such wild wind on the bridge, it seems we can safely reach the imperial throne through it. Said Zhang Xiao Hou.
– Wait! – Su Xiao Luo grabbed Zhang Xiao Hou, who was about to leave. She was excited.
Phan Gu’s face also grayed out, he said softly: “These are the bridges of nine deaths and one life.”
“Bridges … bridges of nine deaths and one life?” – Liu Zhu got goose bumps from these words.
In total there were 10 bridges, the last of them led to the imperial throne, the other nine were the place of death!
Zhang Xiao Hou was very surprised and could not say anything. Oh, if Phan Gu and Su Xiao Luo could have found in ancient texts that the road to the imperial throne leads through these bridges!
– Nine death bridges, one life bridge. This was mentioned in ancient texts, but it is not known which bridge is the bridge of life. – said confidently Gu Gu.
– And what to do … Choose one out of ten. The probability of the right choice is very small … – Liu Zhu was very excited.
– It is not necessary to choose one out of ten. There are five of us here, if we want to make a choice, then our chances increase. – judged Mo Fan
– Fan Gu shook his head: “True, we will all choose different bridges, this will increase the chances of finding the right bridge. Just … do you really want to do that? ”
Fan Gu didn’t care. He had an excuse for redemption. Before he will have to go to the court where he will be sentenced, he can die without regret in the ancestor’s tomb. But Mo Fang, Liu Zhu, Zhang Xiao Hou and Su Xiao Luo have no reason to die. Not to mention the friendship of these guys.
These bridges … In the end, which one to choose?
If we go together, we will die together or we will stay alive. But then the probability that the city will see the dawn is one-tenth.
If you go separately, the probability of saving this city will increase by half.
Bridges of nine deaths and one life … This test was the most difficult among others. But the worst thing is that even if they separate, the probability of their death will still be equal to 50%!
“Choose for yourself,” said Fan Fang, heading for the first bridge. This choice was very hard.Translations by AxomiaHoiMoi Tranlations.
