Chapter 117 — Snow White in a Dark Fairy Tale (45)
After Elena entered the dark passage, she fumbled to find an oil lamp that was hang on the wall and lit it up.
The dim yellow flame flickered and light up the walls around, and at the same time, Elena’s vague reflection was illuminated, giving her cold and strange face an even more weird and treacherous feeling, making people tremble in fear.
Shen Mubai didn’t immediately follow her as Elena’s oil lamp would easily expose her position. It wasn’t until the other person walked a long distance away that she finally followed the dim light carefully.
Elena wasn’t just born with a gloomy face, her height was a little taller and stronger than other maids, and so her steps was reverberating heavily in this narrow and dark passage.
This was a good thing for Shen Mubai who was following her, because the sound that Elena made would cover hers.
Elena didn’t know that someone was following behind her secretly. After walking for a while, she arrived before a mahogany door with intricate patterns.
Elena stopped as she took out a key, and as she opened the door, Shen Mubai heard a crisp click sound that was especially clear inside this dark and gloomy passage.
Just like the key of the Bluebeard, no one would know what was hidden behind the door it opened. Shen Mubai couldn’t help but held her breath, feeling an uncontrollable loud beating of her own heart.
She had a hunch that there definitely was something unthinkable behind the door, just like a taboo that had been broken, her heart was telling her of something fearful as the hair on her body stood on end.
Perhaps she was convinced that there was no one that would come to this place, hence after she opened the door, Elena just let it open and went straight in with the oil lamp in her hand.
After a short while, the place inside seemed to be lit with oil lamps everywhere, and the dim, weird light faintly seeped out of the door.
The dim passage was very quiet. It seemed that Elena didn’t make any sound after entering the secret room.
Shen Mubai stared at the opened redwood door. The ancient vein lines and its blood-like colour made it seemed like decayed and gave her a discomforted feeling, just like when you found a strange wooden house deep inside a forest alone, she can’t help but felt a surge of chill in the air.
“System ah, is there any ghost in this world?” Shen Mubai shivered as she asked.
System said, “No.”
Taking a deep breath, Shen Mubai thought to herself that there’s nothing more terrifying than ghosts, luckily, System said that there’s no ghosts here.
Hence, she bravely hasten her pace to catch up with the creepy maid.
There was a staircase behind the door, and as Shen Mubai walked down, she found the figure of Elena. She squatted down behind the cabinet and tightly controlled her breathing.
From this corner, she could clearly see what Elena was doing.
When she finally could see her clearly, a cold chill crawled down her back.
In the distant, Elena was drooping her eyes, inside her hand was some kind of liquid. She smeared it around in a fluid manner, neither too fast nor too slow. Around her were the corpses of five or six girls, all were in their youth.
The one thing that made Shen Mubai shuddered the most was that the eyebrows of those girls were very similar to Snow White.
Now it’s going on a dark turn~ (゜Д゜*)
