The whole exploration team started dancing in excitement, myself included. Only Ezart was extraordinarily calm, keeping his cool as he surveyed the area for danger as per usual.

I asked him in disbelief, “Don’t you think that everything in front of your eyes is absolutely incredible? We went into an ancient tomb, yet we are seeing technology that far surpasses the current age!”

“Hah? Of course it’s unbelievable! But I’ve seen plenty more unbelievable things. If you want to continue being awed by it, then first you got to stay alive!”

In that moment, I felt great respect for the man. As expected, I had also fallen into the trap of stereotyping someone, and had subconsciously regarded him as a coarse person with great fighting skills. I had truly been too foolish. Really, no one at Ri Xiang Ye’s side could be a simple person.

“What exactly do you want? There’s too many things here, and the journey back is very treacherous. If you don’t have a death wish, then you shouldn’t carry anything too heavy, so we can’t bring much with us.” As he spoke, he gave a vicious glare at the rest of the team, stopping them from clearing out the whole place.

I looked at the whole laboratory—my sole wish was to spend a year or so here. “How much time do I have to look around?”

Ezart frowned as he answered, “I’ll give you three hours, and then we’re scramming!”

Take a deep breath… deep breath, at least I’m still alive!

As for experimental subjects, there are bound to be plenty in this place!

I put my arm around Ezart’s shoulders, which was quite difficult to achieve. After all, he was a lot taller than the average human.

“Ezart, next time remember to leave at least two for me to observe, got it?” I emphasized the two words “got it.”

The other scratched his head as he muttered, “If it weren’t for the fact that An Te Qi doesn’t know the art of disguise, I would have thought you were that guy… Besides, why two? Even for An Te Qi, one is enough. You’re even more troublesome than him!”

“I didn’t even ask you for two males and two females! I’m an anthropologist, specializing in researching behavior patterns. If there is only one left, I would not be able to research their interactions with each other.” I was a little curious and asked, “But who exactly is this An Te Qi that you speak of?”

“He’s a weirdo doctor, and the kind who likes to dissect stuff for research.”

“I don’t really enjoy cutting up stuff.” At most, I just like stabbing.

“Both of you love ‘research.’ It’s just that he likes to play with the dead ones and you like the live ones.”

“Guess we’re going to die, right?”

Ezart lazily raised a lamp, saying, “That is, if I’d forgotten to bring a UV lamp. This thing is seriously heavy as hell, so I really didn’t want to bring it, but lots of stuff living in caves are frightened by it. It’s even more useful than a cannon!”

You’re really quite something. The money spent to hire you was really not wasted!

Ezart raised his ultra-violet lamp with a fierce expression. That gave me a very bad feeling…

“At least leave one for me to experiment on!” I immediately seized the moment to shout out.


With a flash of the light, the rapidly approaching night race instantly turned to ash, even those that were only partially shone on.

It was truly the most perfect failure.

Not even a single one was left.

This night race is too strong!

I felt myself losing heart. I still wanted to properly research the habits of these creatures. In this book, there were so many interesting creatures listed, and many of which could be matched with a corresponding non-human race. There must be a link between them!

But this link was one I could possibly never find in this lifetime.

What a waste of the opportunity of finding this book. If Charles were to know that this book caused my death, he would probably think that it was worth it, too?

Oh, that’s not right. If I died, then most likely Ezart would go down with me. That butler who values his young master so much would probably rather I continue to live on as long as I don’t drag Ezart to his death.

“Even at this point, you’re molesting the book?” Ezart looked at me in shock.

Book? Oh, you mean the one in my hand?

Book… Wait! If the ones in front of us truly are the night race!

This race is claimed to be the failure closest to perfection. The night race were absolutely strong and they had eternal life, but what came with it was a lack of reproductive abilities and a strong weakness to sunlight, in which even the slightest bit of exposure would turn them to ashes…

“Sunlight! We need sunlight!”

“… We’re underground.”

“Retreat!” Ezart roared loudly, “Everyone, go back!”

I had already expected that it would be a treacherous journey, so despite having to keep it confidential, I had still gathered twenty people for the exploration team. On top of that, they were equipped with heavy firepower, enough to attack a small city. However, it appeared that I was still too naive.

Originally, I had thought that even if this place were to still exist, any defenses that they had must have long since perished over the years. However, I’d forgotten that there must have been a major reason why this laboratory would have been destroyed in the first place.

Was it due to the night race in front of us?

Or perhaps, something even stronger?

I want to see—I want to see it all!
