333 The Trap of Alanic Foundation 3

 "Can't you even manage this small thing by yourself, Master?"

Celestina, who appeared out of nowhere, proudly lifted her chin and complained. She then noticed Edward's gaze fall on her and she immediately frowned.

"Lowly creature! Who allows you to look up!"



Along with crisp slapping sound, Edward screamed fiercely. He shook his head and looked down. There was a trace of a long, bloody, whip wound on his face. A whip suddenly appeared in Celestina's hand out of nowhere.

"But doesn't it seems like you are more skilled in doing this kind of thing?"

Rhode crossed his arms as he coldly watched this scene. Celestina only snorted in disdain.

"Even so, there's no need to bother this noble lady just to handle this low-class b*stard. It will only dirty my hand. But... since it's Master's order, I can't help but agree to it. I hope next time you can consider the situation first before summoning me, Master."

Hearing Celestina's answer, a glimpse of a sharp glare flashed through Rhode's eyes. However, Rhode decided not to dwell on this boring topic in the end. That's why he only pretended as if he didn't hear any complaint from her and once again looked at Edward.

"Now, I hope you can consider your current situation, Mr. Edward. I know what you are thinking, but don't forget, you're just a disposable dog of the Alanic Foundation. You and I clearly know the Senia family's position in the Munn Kingdom. Just for you alone, do you think that it is possible for the Alanic family to have the strength and guts to challenge the Senia family? I remember..." Rhode lowered his head as he quickly recalled the current powerful authorities in the Country of Light, then he continued. "If I remember correctly, the Hurdbat and Yamia Foundation have been waiting for this kind of opportunity. For a half-human, half-orc descent like you, is the Alanic Foundation willing to take this risk? I believe you also know that your life and death are not their concerns. Then why are you being loyal to them?"


When he heard Rhode's words, Edward lowered his head and snorted. But this time, he was finally being more obedient and didn't lift his head. It was just that his attitude was still very tough.

"Indeed, just as you said, this gentleman, I'm just a dog of the Alanic family, but so what? If I tell you guys, will you even spare me? Since both outcomes bear death, why should I satisfy your wish? Not to mention, I still haven't repaid the gift that you gave me."

Hearing this, Rhode shrugged his shoulders and exchanged a strange glance with Marlene. Rhode was a little bit surprised, not because Edward was aware of his current situation, but it was because of his reaction. It was no wonder, taking into account that he had destroyed his happiness as a man smoothly. It was not surprising that Edward was not being informative. This was his 'revenge'.

However, it was as he had expected.

"Celestina, I'll leave the rest to you."

Rhode nodded towards Celestina and walked to the side.


Hearing Rhode's words, Celestina snorted with dissatisfaction. Then, she stretched out and threw out some spiky thorns to pin Edward's body. After that, she swung her hand and whipped him hard.


Followed by the screaming sounds, a bloody wound immediately emerged on Edward's body. Celestina's whip was also decorated with small, spiky thorns. This whip was an extreme torment to anyone. However, Edward was already used to similar torture. That's why he only screamed. Then he turned around to look at Celestina and revealed a smile.

"Hey, missy, try to use more power, I'm a hard nut. This level of torture is nothing to me..."

"How dare you!!"

Hearing these words, her expression suddenly sank. An invisible chill and murderous intent emanated from her body. Then the whip once again heavily fell on Edwards's body. Now there was a shocking scar left on his fragile body.

At this moment, Marlene couldn't help but to turn around and look at to the side. However, Rhode remained unchanged. He knew what Edward was relying on. Not only did he inherit his father's strength in 'that area', but he also inherited the orc's strong vitality. He might look weak and fragile, but in fact, his body was pretty strong. Of course, compared to Rhode's legendary bizarre vitality, he was still lacking a lot. But there was no problem for him to resist those ordinary whippings.

Rhode didn't stop Celestina's actions, only quietly watching this scene from the sidelines. Edward didn't know that Celestina's whip wasn't an ordinary whip. As a high-level demon, Celestina's thorny whip was made of the agony vines that grew in the depths of hell. When these agony vines touched one's skin, the pain would be doubled. This was also the most commonly used item when a demon was torturing the enemy. Players who had been beaten by this thorny whip in the game would get an 'extra double damage' debuff. In the beginning, the damage of this attack was not high, but this debuff would stay. After ten or twenty hits.... It was enough for the player to consider escaping from this attack.

So now, Rhode was only watching and waiting for the other party to give in. In Rhode's opinion, it would be just a few minutes.

Things were going according to Rhode's plan.


Edward's body shuddered.

His body felt really uncomfortable now. In the beginning, Edward thought it was just an ordinary whipping. However, following Celestina's actions that were speeding up, he felt that it was getting more and more painful. He couldn't believe it because according to his vitality, being hit by a whip should be nothing to him. But he could feel that things seemed a bit strange.

Logically speaking, after being tortured this much, his nerves should have gradually become numb and used to the pain. To the contrary, it was getting more and more painful for him. Even when the tip of whip only lightly swept by him and didn't even leave a scar on his face, he still felt an indescribable pain of being pierced by thousands of sharp blades, mercilessly tearing and crushing his body.

Although the pain quickly went away, he still broke out in cold sweat. He had never felt such pain before. This time, Edward finally realized that something was wrong. But even so, he still bit his lip, resisted stubbornly. Not only that, he looked towards Celestina in disdain.

"Only this much, b*tch?"

"Hmph! You're looking for death!"

Hearing that Edward still had the energy to offend her, Celestina's eyes turned cold as she kept whipping him.

"Let's see how long you can endure!"

Followed by her angry shouts, the thorny vines on her whip changed its shape. They formed into a barbed spike and began to wander around Edward's body. The sharp part pointed straight to Edward's buttocks and Celestina snapped her finger.


Along with the snapping sound, the thorny vines that originally wrapped around Edward's body swiftly retreated. After that, he fell down and sat on the barbed spikes.


Edward's piercing scream split the air.

The barbed spike was the size of a small fist and half of it had entered Edward's buttocks. Even an ordinary person couldn't afford to suffer such a blow; moreover, currently, he was on an 'extra double damage' debuff. His eyes widened, and two of his eyeballs were poking out. His screaming sound filled the entire prison. At the same time, blood kept flowing out of his buttocks, followed by the barbed spike that fell to the ground.

Gillian couldn't help but blow a whistle as she watched the scene before her. Rhode frowned his brows and said nothing. As for Marlene, she couldn't bear watching such a terrifying scene and lowered her head.

"Ara? You can't endure anymore? Where's your energy from before, lowly creature?"

Right now, Celestina finally revealed her evil side as a demon. Edward kept screaming and trembling as he 'sat' on the barbed spike. Celestina stepped forward and proudly stretched out the whip in her hand and lifted up Edward's chin to look at his expression. He was no longer calm, and his body shuddered and tears flowed down from his eyes mixed with his saliva. His originally handsome face had become distorted and ugly at this moment.

But Celestina didn't stop until then. Looking at Edward, she chuckled and stepped back. The thorny whip began to transform once again, softening and turning into small snakes. They swam all the way in from Edward's intestines and traveled around his body.

"Ahhhhh... Uuu..."

His screams had turned into a bizarre sound. Everyone could see several slender objects were walking around his skin. Edward suddenly lifted his head up, and five or six black snakes spat out from his mouth. They looked at Edward's face and hissed.


Marlene could no longer watch and vomited in the corner. However, Gillian and Rhode's expressions seemed indifferent. Although the current scene was indeed disgusting, but this scene could only be considered as boring B-level horror movies that were still within his range of acceptance. It was a lot better than to see something indescribable coming out from his stomach... right?


At this moment, Edward finally felt extremely frightened. The pain that Celestina gave him was both physical and psychological pain. He felt as if his buttocks were pierced by a sharp blade. The snakes that were swarming in his intestines made him feel nauseous. Originally, Edward thought that there was nothing more terrifying than living a life that was not his own. But now, he finally understood that he was completely wrong.

For a moment, he even felt deep hatred towards his strong orc lineage. If he was just an ordinary human, then he would have died a long time ago and there would be no need for him to endure such nightmarish pain. He couldn't even commit suicide.

On verge of despair, a voice echoed in his ear as if it had come down from heaven.

"How is it? Are you willing to confess now?"
