The tunnel was dim and misty. Barely anything could be seen. Everything had to be perceived through other senses.
However, the Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp had made a lot of noises during the digging, so Han Fei and Yang Ruoyun must’ve been exposed.
Han Fei said, “What do we do if anyone ambushes us in this place?”
Yang Ruoyun replied quickly, “We kill them! Whoever sets up an ambush here can’t be weak. We cannot show mercy on them.”
She stopped and asked, “Have we been ambushed?”
Han Fei nodded, “Yes, but only by two people.”
Yang Ruoyun’s face slightly changed in the target. “Let’s change our way.”
Han Fei asked, “Why?”.
Yang Ruoyun quickly explained, “If it were you, would you dare to set up an ambush with only one person here in the Seaborne Prairie?”
Han Fei said, “I think I would!”
Yang Ruoyun: “…
Han Fei suddenly said, “Wait, don’t be stupid! If the ambushers are as good as me, they must have a lot of good stuff.”
Yang Ruoyun paused and asked, “What are you getting at?”
She had a bad feeling. Han Fei was very strong, and not entirely decent though he was not a villain. At this point, the man must be planning to rob the other people…
As he expected, Han Fei said in the next moment, “You keep walking.” Yang Ruoyun asked, “What about you?” Han Fei said, “Don’t worry. I’ll catch up with you later.”
Han Fei dug a tunnel downwards with a ring of Blue Sea Wandering Dragon Daggers like a drill and disappeared from Yang Ruoyun’s senses in the blink of an eye.
“What a jerk. He’s using me as bait.”
Yang Ruoyun gnashed her teeth. How did I run into such a jerk? Wasn’t he here for treasure hunting? Why is he suddenly interested in robbery?
Han Fei didn’t know what Yang Ruoyun was thinking, but his senses covered everything within three hundred meters. He entered the tunnel that the ambushers had dug and was several hundred meters away from them.
Han Fei drew a Stealth Array with his spiritual energy quickly.
At this point, Han Fei wished that he were a hunter, in which case he would be able to approach the ambushers without a sound.
Han Fei raised the Blue Sea Wandering Dragon Bow and gathered 1,600 points of spiritual energy into an arrow.
Not far away, two peak-level Dangling Fishers were listening attentively.
Suddenly, one of them said, “Huh, do you feel that the spiritual energy here is intensifying?”
The other frowned and replied, “Seems so. Is the spirit gatherer in the team up above gathering spiritual energy?”
Their faces both changed drastically in the middle of their discussion. They turned around at the same time, initiating the spiritual energy protective cover and fusing with their spiritual beasts.
Up above, Yang Ruoyun’s face changed. She gnashed her teeth and disappeared, “What a
Down below, Han Fei’s attack succeeded. The two peak-level Dangling Fishers didn’t realize it until their life was under threat. At this point, one of them had been blown away, and the other had lost one of his daggers. His hand was shivering too.
Strength was what mattered most in a head-on clash. The tunnel was not very wide, and Han Fei had blocked it with the Water Dividing Seal, which defended himself while he launched the attack.
“Electric Soul Attack…”
“Ultimate Shadow Stab…”
Tremendous flashing blue electric arcs popped up in the water, and Han Fei trembled under the electric shock.
But to their surprise, Han Fei resisted the attack without being defeated.
They were blown away again. The weight of the Water Dividing Seal, plus Han Fei’s enormous force, had crushed them even though they were peak-level Dangling Fishers.
At this point, the Blue Sea Wandering Dragon Daggers were launched, and Yang Ruoyun pressed her daggers at them too.
However, the peak-level Dangling Fishers wouldn’t be taken down so easily even though they had been heavily wounded. After a dozen attacks and counterattacks, Yang Ruoyun had to retreat when she was cut three times.
Han Fei spoke to her telepathically, Why are you here? Those two are mine. Don’t steal them.
Yang Ruoyun was infuriated as she was here to help, not to steal. That man was truly ungrateful.
She was quite shocked too, as Han Fei seemed to be horrifyingly strong! Two peak-level Dangling Fishers had been heavily wounded by him the moment they engaged? How strong must he be?
Actually, Han Fei felt no pressure at all. The Million Knife Art under the control of the Saber Manipulation Art was the best of the saber arts for Dangling Fishers.
Those two hunters had been cut dozens of times without being able to put up any resistance.
Han Fei secretly chuckled. This might’ve been tricky for him if he hadn’t made the breakthrough…
But right now, he was essentially one step away from a peak-level Dangling Fisher, and he was much stronger than them in terms of comprehensive abilities. If he couldn’t defeat them, he would feel sorry for his divine-level arts and techniques as well as his Indestructible Body.
“Bro, let’s talk nicely! Don’t kill us!”
The Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp charged in and tied them up with its chains, waving its limbs threateningly, ready to crumble their heads if they intended to run.
Seeing that the Mantis Shrimp’s hammer-like limbs had almost reached their face, both of them looked horrified.
With a dagger in each hand, Han Fei stood before them and said, “When you ambush other people, be ready to be ambushed. Submit your Sea Swallowing Seashells.”
Those two had no choices except to submit them, or he could’ve taken the Sea Swallowing Shells all the same after killing them.
Immediately, two Sea Swallowing Seashells floated in the water.
Han Fei picked them up and frowned, as there was nothing but one spiritual fruit inside the two Sea Swallowing Seashells. Those two were really poor! Apart from the spiritual fruit, there were a few spiritual weapons, magic weapons, and some materials and mid-quality pearls.
“What a pauper.”
Han Fei squinted and said, “I can spare you, but I have my terms.”
“Just tell us! As long as you spare us, we’re willing to do anything for you…” Han Fei’s lips curled. “You will lead the vanguard as we explore the depths of the Seaborne Prairie.”
Yang Ruoyun looked at Han Fei, surprised that Han Fei was not going to kill the two ambushers.
Then, she immediately realized that nobody served as scouts better than two peak-level Dangling Fishers in the rest of the journey which would be even more dangerous. Those two were immediately chilled after seeing that. One of them said, “Bro, you really shouldn’t press on any further…”
Han Fei turned cold. “Why not?”
One of them said in fright, “We had four teammates at the beginning. One died at the edge, and one died in the deeper parts where terrible gigantic worms live.”
Han Fei looked at Yang Ruoyun, and she shook her head. “I’ve never read or heard that before.”
Han Fei sneered at them and said, “This is not a discussion. You will go whether you want to or not. If you do, you still have a chance to live; if you don’t, I’ll kill you here and now.”
Those two paused a moment and accepted the demand. Like Han Fei said, they might live if they went with him, but they would be dead for sure if they refused to.
If they passed the nests of worms, it was possible that they could get rid of Han Fei…
They secretly communicated with each other and decided to take the risk.
In the meantime, Han Fei received Yang Ruoyun’s secret message. Don’t believe them, and kill them instantly if they do anything unusual, or there may be great problems.
Han Fei grinned and said, “Rest assured. I know what I’m doing.”
A moment later, led by those two people, Han Fei and Yang Ruoyun pressed on in a tunnel that had been dug earlier.
About half an hour later, the two people up ahead suddenly turned around and said, “It’s a dead end here. We sealed the tunnel after we fled back.”
Han Fei asked, “Why didn’t you go around it?”
One of them smiled bitterly, “How could we? Worm nests are everywhere. The only opening is up in the water. But if we go there, the seaweeds that are much denser than reeds would tie us up in no time.”
Han Fei speculated that those gigantic worms might be creatures similar to the enormous sandworms. If those two had escaped, there was no reason why he couldn’t.
“Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp, dig into the worm nests.”
Seeing that, Yang Ruoyun pulled Han Fei and asked, “Have you lost your mind? You’re still digging?”
Han Fei shook her hand off and said solemnly, “If all the paths in front of you are dangerous, you will have to choose the least dangerous one of them. Since those two escaped, it means that the worm nests are not really perilous. Maybe, that’s the only way out here.”
Yang Ruoyun was briefly stunned, feeling that he had a point. But she wondered why Han Fei was risking so much to explore the Seaborne Prairie. Was it really for treasure hunting?
Yang Ruoyun said, “With your capabilities, you could’ve explored countless other treasure troves in the level-three fishery. Why the Seaborne Prairie?”
Han Fei grinned and, remembering the guys from the Sun Family, remarked, “Because this place makes a great graveyard.”
