Han Fei had thought that Yang Ruoyun was talking nonsense. Petrifying sponges? It didn’t make any sense! Han Fei knew that sponges were used as tablecloths and bath balls in the Mediterranean area. How could those things kill people?
But Han Fei’s face had changed at this point. This was a new species that was as swift as a fish…
In his eyes, data popped up.
<Name> Star Chasing Sponge
<Introduction> This is a mutated sponge that has a brain thanks to the nurturing of spiritual energy. It will chase prey alongside the unusual water currents and will detonate itself when it runs into an enemy.
<Spiritual Energy> 1,096 Points
Han Fei shook the fishing pole quickly and got out of the attack range of the Star Chasing Sponge, before he shouted to Yang Ruoyun, “Run!”
Yang Ruoyun didn’t know what was happening, but seeing that Han Fei was fleeing in panic, she started running too.
As it turned out, when they were only a hundred meters away, an ear splitting explosion burst out behind them and blew them away.
Before they could swim aside, one Star Chasing Sponge came to them after another, as if they were attracted by the explosion.
Han Fei felt that his blood was freezing. What did I do? Nothing more than fishing for a Yellow Blood Sea Cucumber! Why should I deserve this? Yang Ruoyun’s face changed. “Not good. Why are the sponges following us?”
Han Fei said helplessly, “They can sense the flow of water. I’m afraid that they’ll keep following us until we stop swimming.”
To be honest, Han Fei had never met such a shameless creature that was like a haunting ghost, except that ghosts wouldn’t explode, but those sponges detonated themselves like torpedoes without being attacked whatsoever.
Bam! Bam! Bam!
A moment later…
Han Fei rushed out of the area of sponges. They couldn’t have looked more miserable.
Yang Ruoyun was bleeding all over her body, her hair unkempt. Her face, her skin, and her clothes were covered by the disgusting yellowish fluids.
Han Fei wasn’t any better… However, since his body was sturdier, he wasn’t really hurt even though his clothes were ragged.
Of course, Han Fei was drenched with yellowish fluids too. It was sticky and couldn’t be washed off by seawater. He tried three times before he finally shook the fluids off from him with spiritual energy.
Yang Ruoyun’s eyes were burning with fury, and Han Fei smiled in embarrassment and cast the Divine Healing Technique on her.
Han Fei said, “Don’t blame me! I’m here for treasures! Who could’ve known that the sponges could be so disgusting?” Yang Ruoyun scolded, “Can you not take risks for petty returns? It’s just a Yellow Blood Sea Cucumber. Next time you’re on a dragon boat, you can buy whatever you want in the market, and you can eat the Yellow Blood Sea Cucumber every day.”
Han Fei raised his head and looked at the sky? Next time he was on a dragon boat? He was probably wanted on all the dragon boats in the level-three fishery. If his guess was correct, there might be someone from the Sun Family on every dragon boat too.
Han Fei said, “This is all meant to increase our experience. Now that we’ve met those wretched sponges, they can do nothing to us next time. This minor setback has improved our odds of survival in the ocean…”
“Just keep telling yourself that!”
Passing the area of sponges, they came to a place full of seaweed.
A lot of sea urchins in different shapes and colors were here. Occasionally, eels would be crawling out of the seaweeds, but they returned to the seaweed upon seeing Han Fei and Yang Ruoyun.
Han Fei even saw a green squid that was pretending to be a piece of seaweed.
But Han Fei didn’t take action this time. He would’ve picked a regular squid even if he wanted to eat one. This one looked suspicious and might be poisonous.
Half an hour later, they came to the 1,500 kilometer border. Han Fei was completely shocked.
Blocking Han Fei’s way was a curtain of seaweed. It was as though a wall of seaweed had been established before his eyes. It stretched out infinitely on both sides.
He looked up, only to see that the seaweed seemed to have covered the whole area between the surface and the bottom of the ocean. It was most splendid.
On the seaweed, Han Fei saw tremendous amounts of barnacles and sea sunflowers. Well, they weren’t the only creatures. There were also green spiders and long worms wriggling on the seaweed, as well as colorful sea urchins.
On a closer look, one would discover a lot of amazing creatures, and at distance, the wall looked like a green curtain dotted with colorful stars.
Han Fei looked at it in awe. “How are we going to get past this?”
Yang Ruoyun was as shocked as Han Fei was. At this point, she was also gazing at the undersea wonder with curiosity.
Yang Ruoyun said, “I thought that the wall of seaweed was just a rumor and that there should be a passage. I didn’t know that it would be a dead end.”
Han Fei almost vomited blood. “So you didn’t really know what’s out there?”
Yang Ruoyun shook her head. “The books I read said that the wall of seaweed in the Seaborne Prairie could resist fish tides and give birth to all creatures, that it was as high as the sky and as thick as the shell of divine turtles… I always thought that it was an exaggeration.”
Han Fei swallowed. “That’s really a neat description…”
Yang Ruoyun: “…”
The two of them stared at the wall for a while, not knowing what to do. Eventually, Han Fei proposed, “Why don’t we swim up?”
Yang Ruoyun nodded.
They swam straightly to the surface of the ocean for almost a thousand meters. When the plants on the surface of the ocean were almost dangling on their faces, Han Fei finally admitted that the gap was really flawless.
They returned to the bottom of the ocean. Looking at the wall, Han Fei said casually, “If this wall is as high and sturdy as it is described, there is no way that we can break through it by force…”
Yang Ruoyun agreed with him. “Of course we can’t. We need to circumvent it from below.”
Han Fei knew that it was necessary to go from below too. Though it was ungraceful to dig tunnels, it was still better than crawling through the seaweed.
Otherwise, if certain strange poisonous trees popped up among the seaweed, it might not be possible for him to cut through them.
Han Fei immediately summoned the Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp.
Kicking the Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp in the butt, Han Fei declared, “Start digging. Your master needs to get past this.”
Then, Han Fei looked at Yang Ruoyun and said, “There’s no way up here, so we have to go underground. In that case, are the ambushes you mentioned underground too?”
Yang Ruoyun nodded. “If my intelligence is correct, that must be the case.”
The Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp dug the tunnel diligently, complaining that its master summoned it for digging and fighting every time. Why was it never summoned because there was a girlfriend for it?
Following the Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp, Han Fei and Yang Ruoyun saw that it dug the soil with its nine tails and pushed the mud away with its limbs.
Yang Ruoyun exclaimed in shock, “Is this contractual spiritual beast of yours really an exotic creature?”
Han Fei nodded. “It’s not like I can get a legendary one, can I?”
Yang Ruoyun was amazed. “It’s really good! I don’t know anything that can dig so fast…” Han Fei said in amusement, “You’re joking… Crabs are great diggers too. If you catch an exotic crab, it can also dig a tunnel quickly. So can a lobster, for that matter.”
Yang Ruoyun was uninterested in that, but she felt lucky that she cooperated with Han Fei. The trip so far had been safe and sound except for the random explosions in the area of sponges…
There was no telling how far the Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp had dug, but a lot of roots emerged in the tunnel and tried to tie up the intruders…
Han Fei and Yang Ruoyun were immediately occupied. Both of them cut the roots nonstop with daggers in both hands.
Han Fei had been perceiving the environment. When he found that the Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp was slower and slower, he kicked its butt and said, “Dig down.”
Yang Ruoyun was lost for words. Is that how you treat your contractual spiritual beast? I feel sorry for this creature that has met such a master…
A moment later, Han Fei grew excited. He had detected several hollow spots nearby. Someone was indeed lurking under the soil…
