I, Became a Gravekeeper of the Pyramid of Giza - Chapter 39

Leena looked over.
The Devil Flower beside the coffin had already bloomed.
Leena’s eyes were glazed over as if she was intoxicated by the beauty of the blooming flower.
The petals of the Devil Flower swayed gently as if they were alive. The flower was in full bloom, and colorful pollen was flying in the air like snowflakes.
Leena slowly stood up. She took a step forward, and as if possessed, she walked straight toward the Devil Flower.
Even though she was well aware that the Devil Flower was deadly, she could not resist its enchanting beauty. No one could.
Wait, why did the Devil Flower suddenly bloom?
Could it be that the hallucination she had earlier was caused by the Devil Flower suddenly coming into blossom?
Meanwhile, the netizens who saw this scene also started commenting.
“D*mn, when did this Devil Flower bloom?”
“Did anyone notice when it bloomed?”
“I’ve been staring at the Devil Flower all this time because it’s really too beautiful. But I have no idea when it bloomed. It feels like it bloomed instantly, but it also looks like it’s been in full bloom the whole time.”
“But how can it explain what we saw? I saw Leena attacking Aaron, but in the next second, Wayne had a dagger in his chest. Do you think the effect of the Devil Flower can be transmitted through the screen?”
“No way. How can it be? Have we been affected too?”
“Didn’t they say that the illusions are only caused by its pollen? You must have seen it wrongly!”
“I agree. It can’t possibly happen from across the screen!”
At this moment, the netizens were split into two sides. One side believed that they had also experienced an illusion, while the other thought that they had seen wrongly.
Actually, Devil Flowers could only cause illusions through their pollen.
So it didn’t make sense that the netizens watching the live stream had also been affected.
Back to Leena.
Utter shock was written all over her face, and she was shivering uncontrollably. It seemed that she had already regained consciousness.
At this moment, she was filled with despair and she knew that her death was near.
However, she still did not know when she started having illusions.
Everything in the burial chamber didn’t make sense.
A thought suddenly flashed through her mind.
Perhaps all of them had begun hallucinating the moment they entered the room.
However, there was no point in thinking about that now. Although none of them could make it out alive today, she had to leave a message behind to warn the other members of the Scott family.
The bloodline curse on the Scott family had to be removed.
If she could leave some useful advice for the descendants of the Scott family, she would have no regrets dying today.
At this thought, she picked up the camera on the ground and shouted at it.
“Attention all Scott family members! Please pay attention to what I’m going to say!”
“We were poisoned right from the start, and I suspect that we’ve been having illusions the moment we entered the tomb passage because the Devil Flower has been in full bloom the entire time. Right now, the pollen has spread through the entire chamber, perhaps even through the passageway too!”
“Next time, if you enter again, you must take the Mind Purging Pill before entering the tomb passage!”
“You must be fully prepared before you enter the Pyramid of Giza!”
She shouted these words with all her might, knowing full well that the Scott family members must have heard her.
She had to leave behind the clues she had discovered. This would be an important piece of information for the other Scotts to conquer this pyramid.
With the information, it would be much easier for the others to enter again next time.
At this moment, Aaron had come behind Leena. No longer able to suppress its thirst for blood, it strode toward her.
In the next instant, it reached Leena. It grabbed her throat and was about to bite her.
It was only then that the netizens realized what had happened.
It turned out that the Devil Flower had been in full bloom since the very beginning. The exorcists had inhaled the pollen and started having illusions long ago.
Some netizens claimed that they had seen a Devil Flower that had not bloomed, but that only existed in their imagination.
They didn’t even know when they were tricked. The Devil Flower was indeed terrifying.
Meanwhile, in the Scott family’s ancient castle, everyone looked miserable.
“I didn’t expect that we were being toyed with the entire time.”
“We didn’t even notice that they’d been having illusions.”
“This is why Devil Flowers are so dangerous. Not only can they spread illusions through pollen, but they can also affect people who see them through other means via strong psychological suggestions. They can easily trick people into illusions without them knowing.”
“So that’s why. Otherwise, how did we fall into the same illusion?”
At this moment, every member of the Scott family was shocked by how terrifying the Devil Flower was.
They felt regretful.
They had underestimated the Pyramid of Giza, and the gravekeeper within.
At first, after the Scott siblings defeated the sacred scarabs and fire ladybugs, they were quite pleased with themselves.
They thought that the Pyramid of Giza was not so dangerous after all and that the Scott siblings would certainly return safely with the cure.
But they didn’t know that those bugs were just the tip of the iceberg of the pyramid.
The actual nightmare was High Priest Aaron in the burial chamber. His revived mummy was immune to all kinds of attacks.
Moreover, there was a Devil Flower that could trick people into killing themselves.
The Scott siblings were not strong enough to deal with either of them separately, much less two at the same time.
Actually, even the Scott family’s founding ancestors might not be able to leave the pyramid alive.
“Oh no, Leena is in danger!”
“Wait, there’s more!”
“Wh-What is going on?!”
Just as everyone had lost all hope, the situation in the tomb changed.
Leena watched as Aaron’s bloody mouth closed in around her throat. She was prepared to die.
At this critical moment, the stone door, which had been shut tightly, suddenly opened from the outside.
The netizens were all stunned by this sudden plot twist.
“How did the door open?!”
“Didn’t they say that the door can only be opened from the outside?”
“No way. Could it be that there are others who have entered the pyramid beside the three exorcists?”
“Wait… Isn’t this the gravekeeper from before?”
When the stone door was wide open, the netizens looked over and saw a figure walk in from outside.
It was Vincent.
He strolled into the room as if he was taking a walk in his own backyard. There was no trace of fear on his face when he saw Aaron’s terrifying mummy.
When Leena saw who it was, her face was filled with shock.
She was confused. Why did he suddenly come in at this critical moment?!
