412 The Flower“s Powers"Seven steps. If you take another seven steps, you will die. If you don't believe me, you can continue walking," the flower's voice sounded again.
A cold sweat broke out on Zhou Wen's forehead as he stood there, unsure if he should continue walking.
Logically speaking, Truth Listener was able to nullify any evil powers, but there was no invincible power in this world. Zhou Wen still hadn't figured out what kind of evil powers Truth Listener could nullify.
If the flower was just making an empty threat, Zhou Wen would be fine with leaving, but what if it was speaking the truth? Zhou Wen didn't dare gamble with his life.
However, Zhou Wen wasn't willing to be frightened by the flower. Gritting his teeth, he continued retreating. One step, two steps, three steps. As he retreated, he looked at the flower on the mountain wall.
The flower didn't make another sound. This only made Zhou Wen feel uneasy.
Four steps, five steps, six steps. Zhou Wen continued walking, but there was no reaction from the Truth Listener earring. Zhou Wen's heart drummed. Could it really be a hoax? Why isn't there any reaction at all?
Despite having this in mind, he didn't dare to take the final step.
That's right. Zhou Wen was indeed afraid of death, and there didn't seem to be a need for him to risk his life.
"Why aren't you walking? You have one more step to go." The flower finally spoke, but its tone was filled with mockery.
"We don't have any feud. Why are you making things difficult for me? If you lack fertilizer, I'll help you find it. If you lack water, I'll water you. How about that?" Zhou Wen stood there and shouted at the flower on the mountain wall.
"Why would I want your water and fertilizer?" The flower said coldly. "From now on, answer the questions I ask you. If you satisfy me, I'll spare your life. Otherwise, I'll make you beg for death. Even if you die, I'll turn you into a candle."
"I can't stand being threatened by others. I'm leaving. What can you do about it?" Zhou Wen said as he raised his foot.
However, just as he raised his foot, he felt a wave of dizziness and almost fell to the ground. Alarmed, he stopped in his tracks, not daring to lift his foot to take the step.
Damn it, how did this happen? Zhou Wen was appalled. He knew that the flower was speaking the truth.
"Why aren't you leaving? Continue walking. Where did your temper go?" the flower teased.
Zhou Wen thought to himself, There's no need to lose my life over a quarrel with a flower. Even Truth Listener's Evil Nullification Life Soul is useless. I wonder what origins this flower has.
"You seem to be the only flower growing on the mountain wall. You must be very lonely and sad. I hate seeing others sad and suffer, so I'll chat with you. However, since it's a chat, it can't just be you asking questions. I should be able to ask you some questions too. Don't you agree?" Zhou Wen bargained.
The flower didn't refute him. Instead, it asked, "What's your name?"
Zhou Wen's heart skipped a beat. He remembered that in myths, there was a power capable of imprisoning people with the mere calling out of a name. He was momentarily unsure if he should answer.
"Why are you so wishy-washy? Just die," the flower said impatiently.
"My name is Zhou Wen. What's your name?" Zhou Wen knew that it was useless even if he used a fake name. This was because the name was actually just a representation. From his mouth, no matter if it was real or fake, it represented himself. If the other party really had that ability, it would be effective even on a fake name.
"Call me The Thearch." The flower paused before asking, "Why are you here?"
"Will you believe me if I say that I'm here as a tourist?" Although Zhou Wen said that, he thought to himself, To think a flower wants to be called a thearch? Is it crazy?
The flower chuckled. "I believe you. Why not? Since you're here to travel, I'll do a good deed. I'll take you to Chess Mountain for a tour."
