Rubik's Cube of Heavens - Chapter 91
In the crown of the tree, Coven slowed down his breathing and stuck his body firmly to a huge tree branch, completely covering his figure.
Then, he began to wait…
In less than five seconds, a tall and majestic figure quickly circled out from behind a tree.
The person who came was the guard of House’s field and the forbidden forest – Rubeus Hagrid.
Hagrid had just circled around from behind the giant tree when he saw the large illusion set up by Coven at a glance.
The illusion was very virtual, all composed of magic dust emitting dim yellow light.
At this time, the illusion showed the figure of an adult wearing a wizard’s robe and a hood over his head. He was pointing his wand at Hagrid.
Seeing such a figure, Hagrid instinctively stopped and shouted, “Who is it!”
However, after shouting, Hagrid also saw the situation clearly and found that the figure was just an illusion.
Although he slightly lowered his guard, Hagrid still carefully looked around to prevent himself from being attacked.
After being on guard for a while, Hagrid still did not find anyone lying in ambush around him. Just as he was wondering, a figure quickly rushed out from the right side of the forest. It was the Centaur Firenze.
When Firenze rushed out, he was holding a spear in his hand as if he was throwing it, but he quickly discovered the essence of the illusion.
He also looked around vigilantly, and Firenze asked in a low voice, “Hagrid, what’s going on?”
“I don’t know either. I was shocked by this illusion when I rushed over.” After seeing his companions, Hagrid relaxed a little and asked, “What about you?”
“We were fooled!” Firenze frowned and replied, “We all thought that someone used the light. But after I caught up with it, I found that it was just a dancing light. It was obviously used by the murderer to confuse us!”
As soon as Firenze finished speaking, the large illusion in the field suddenly began to distort. Not long after, the illusion completely dissipated, restoring the surrounding darkness.
“It seems that the murderer is very meticulous!” When Firenze saw this, he came to Hagrid’s side and said, “First, he used the dancing fluorescent light to separate us. Then, he left an illusion and successfully stopped you here…”
“Unfortunately…” Hearing this, Hagrid sighed, “It’s a pity that I didn’t get Fang to follow me today.”
“No.” Firenze shook his head, “I guess, with the murderer’s carefulness, he will definitely eliminate the clues of the smell.”
“Then how should we…” Hagrid suddenly paused and said urgently, “Footprints!”
After exchanging glances with the centaur Firenze, Hagrid quickly took out a small umbrella from his bosom.
Lifting the umbrella in his hand, Hagrid drew a circle with the umbrella while saying, “Super fluorescent flash!”
The ball of light appeared at the tip of the umbrella. The wide range of light dispelled the darkness around it.
Next, Hagrid and Firenze bent down slightly and carefully looked for the footprints on the ground.
A few minutes later, the two finally found three vague footprints behind a tree….
“They ran this way!” Because of the discovery, Hagrid couldn’t help but be spirited. He urged slightly eagerly, “Firenze! Let’s chase!”
“Wait!” Firenze quickly called out to Hagrid, who was about to rush out.
“Firenze?” Hagrid stopped in confusion and turned to look at his companion.
“There is something wrong with the footprints!” Firenze looked serious and explained calmly, “We have looked around. There are only footprints here!”
“Is there anything wrong with this?” Hagrid did not think too much about it, so he was very puzzled.
Firenze shook his head and continued to explain, “No, this is not right! Think about it. We did not come from this direction… Obviously, the murderer carefully removed the footprints before. Then the footprints here, I think the murderer deliberately left them behind to induce us again!”
“Then what should we do?” Hagrid was conflicted. “We don’t have any other clues.”
Firenze pondered for a moment and finally sighed helplessly. “Alright, we can only follow this direction.”
Hagrid nodded and didn’t say anything else. He turned around and chased after the footprints.
Firenze was one step behind, and after looking around, he could only follow…
In the crown of the tree, Coven only heaved a sigh of relief after he could not hear the footsteps of Hagrid and Firenze. He sat upon the tree branch.
He cast another ‘light body curse’ on himself and quickly jumped down from the ten-meter-tall crown.
In order to avoid overturning the car at the last moment, Coven continued to release Restoring Spell’and maintain it to eliminate his footprints.
Then, Coven chased after the twins outside the forbidden forest.
Because Hagrid and Firenze had been looking for clues for several minutes, they had also delayed Coven for several minutes.
By the time Coven successfully caught up with the twins, they were already close to the edge of the Forbidden Forest.
Coven called out to stop the twins. Only then did the twins stop breathing heavily, and then they both collapsed to the ground in exhaustion.
After gasping for a while, Fred reluctantly asked, “Coven… Have you gotten rid of the people chasing us?”
“I have,” Coven responded steadily. This little amount of exercise was nothing to him.
“That, that’s good…” Knowing the result, Fred breathed a sigh of relief and then concentrated on breathing in large mouthfuls, providing oxygen to his lungs.
George did not speak and weakly raised his hand to wave at Coven as a greeting.
Coven looked at the two of them in a sorry state and could not help but smile and shake his head. He suggested, “It’s time for you to exercise. You only ran for ten minutes.”
The twins had no strength to speak and could only roll their eyes at Coven.
Seeing that the twins still needed to recover for a while, Coven looked around and then raised his wand to point not far away. He controlled a few scattered branches to fly over, and then he used ‘Transform Conjuration’ to try to replace the five Acromantula who had not been dealt with in time.
In the next moment, five huge bodies of Acromantula suddenly replaced the position of the big branches and appeared in front of the three people.
“That’s great!” Seeing this, Coven couldn’t help but exclaim in excitement, “I guessed that they didn’t have time to clean up these corpses!”
Seeing this, the twins also revealed excited expressions. They reluctantly got up from the ground and came to Coven.
The three of them looked at each other in tacit understanding and then started working again.
They separated the spider legs, put on dragon skin gloves, picked up the poison sac and squeezed it, and used beakers to take the poison.
In less than three minutes, the three experienced workers finished looting all the valuable things on Acromantula.
No longer staying, the three of them left the forbidden forest and returned to the castle. Although there were twists and turns, it was still a full day of harvest…
