Now that the map had been offered to him, how could Han Fei let it go?
Immediately, Han Fei picked up the map, only to discover that it marked a treasure trove near the Seaborne Prairie that he had never explored.
Han Fei cross-checked it with Old Bai’s map. He did not find any mark, but there was an underwater mountain on this map. Looking at the quality of the fish skin, Han Fei was more or less convinced.
But he still asked grimly, “How do I know that this map is real? And even if it’s real, do you think I’ll let go of you?”
Yang Ruoyun looked at the big starfish by Han Fei’s side and thought that it was Han Fei’s contractual spiritual beast. Though she was surprised that Han Fei had three contractual spiritual beasts, it was not unprecedented. So she did not consider it a big deal.
Yang Ruoyun said casually, “Our first encounter was an accident. In our second encounter, I directed the people from the ghost boat to kill you, so I owe you one. In our third encounter on the Seaborne Prairie, you helped me, and I owe you another one. As for the wall of seaweed, that’s not my fault. I had to save myself at the critical moment. Also, I gave you two flash stones. You owe me one for that.”
Han Fei was so angry that he laughed. “That’s bulls*it. Who cleared the way for you? How could you have escaped from the two hunters without me? I don’t owe you a damn thing.”
Yang Ruoyun replied casually, “Whatever you think, I never set up any trap against you, and I am not to blame for what happened to
Slightly choked, Han Fei said, “No.You knew the wall of seaweed and the pit of the Dry Leaf Worms earlier, so you prepared a lot of flash stones for yourself and fooled me into treasure hunting with you.”
Yang Ruoyun stared at Han Fei and said, “Let’s make things clear. Firstly, I didn’t fool you into treasure hunting with me; you volunteered to join me.”
Han Fei narrowed his eyes and said, “Would I have followed you if you had told me the truth?”
Yang Ruoyun nodded. “You would have.”
Han Fei was choked again, wondering why he had asked such a stupid question.
Yang Ruoyun smiled and said, “Just now, an enormous explosion took place, and I sensed the blast even from here. I don’t see why you would make such an explosion unless your enemies have caught up to you. Therefore, you entered the Seaborne Prairie probably because you were chased after, and you had to press on even if the journey ahead was dangerous.”
Han Fei’s fury was paused. He was surprised that the woman had guessed so many things.
If Han Fei was an unreasonable person, he might have killed Yang Ruoyun. After all, in a world full of cultivators, one did not need a reason to kill someone else.
But not everybody was like that. Most people had their principles. Han Fei, for one, could not kill anyone without a good reason…
However, he would not be bent so easily, either. He said coldly, “Even so, you still owe me two favors, and you should return them with your life.”
Raising her head and staring at Han Fei, Yang Ruoyun said, “The fish skin map in your hand was drawn by my father in person nine years ago. You can check the texture of the fish skin to confirm. Does it count as one?”
Han Fei reluctantly nodded his head. The treasure trove definitely counted as one favor.
Yang Ruoyun said again, “You were asking about the Abyssal Chasm earlier, and I know a thing or two about that.”
As she spoke, Yang Ruoyun tossed half a book to Han Fei, and Han Fei found that its title was “Records on the Exploration of the Abyssal Chasm”.
Having no time to read it, Han Fei asked, “Why is it only half a book?”
Yang Ruoyun said calmly, “The other half is in my hand. I’ll give it to you after we get out of here safely.”
Han Fei asked further, “Why do you have something that nobody else does?”
Yang Ruoyun replied casually, “Do you have any idea how many people die in this fishery every day? To be honest, this book is not valuable at all, but just because something is cheap doesn’t mean it’s always available. At least, you might not be able to find a copy of this book at all on the dragon boats…”
Han Fei frowned. Who is this woman exactly?
As if knowing what was on Han Fei’s mind, Yang Ruoyun said, “We weren’t supposed to be related, but we embarked on the same journey coincidentally. You must’ve realized that the level-three fishery is not as simple as it seems, and the world we know is only one tiny proportion of it.”
Han Fei waved his hand and said, “I can get the other half of the book after I kill you, but it doesn’t matter if you don’t want to give it to me. We can just go separate ways. Bye bye.”
Hardly had Han Fei jumped to the Hexagon Starfish’s back when Yang Ruoyun said, “I’m of no threat to you, but your pursuers are outrageously strong. If you take me, I can help you get rid of them.”
Han Fei immediately hit the brakes and looked back at Yang Ruoyun.
Yang Ruoyun stared at Han Fei. “If I can’t do it, you can kill me.”
After a long silence, Han Fei finally said, “Damn it.”
Han Fei knew that Yang Ruoyun was not a good person, but she seemed to be very smart, and he could not overlook her declaration to help him get rid of his pursuers.
If he were an ordinary person, he probably would’ve been killed after following Yang Ruoyun into the Seaborne Prairie. Since he had been trapped by her, the guys of the Sun Family definitely could be too.
The Hexagon Starfish, which had been silent, rolled its six big eyes and said, I don’t think you can beat her in a debate.
Han Fei said angrily, I can’t beat her? I’m just being a gentleman, or I could’ve slapped her to death easily.
Yang Ruoyun’s eyes widened. “This starfish… Can communicate?”
Han Fei suddenly realized that the Hexagon Starfish, just like the Stone Spirit Turtle, spoke with mental waves, and he was not the only one who could hear it. He couldn’t help but remark, “Why do you care if it can talk? Come here, but if you show the slightest anomaly, I’ll kill you immediately.”
Yang Ruoyun ignored what Han Fei said but simply looked at the Hexagon Starfish in shock. A sea creature that could talk? She had met two of them in only one day.
While following Han Fei, Yang Ruoyun stared at the Hexagon Starfish and asked, “Is this the thing in the wall of seaweeds?”
Han Fei shook his head. “Of course not. How can Mr. Hexagon Starfish be the same as that goddamn seaweed monster? I’m going back to it sooner or later.”
The Hexagon Starfish said again, You can’t defeat it.
Han Fei said gloomily, Mr. Hexagon Starfish, shut up! I still have you if I can’t defeat it, don’t I?
The Hexagon Starfish constricted its eyes and said, I can’t defeat it either. Besides, the starfish don’t fight.
On the back of the starfish, Yang Ruoyun was rather curious. Was this big starfish really a contractual spiritual beast? She never knew a contractual spiritual beast that could talk… She couldn’t help but wonder who Han Fei was exactly.
Han Fei, on the other hand, couldn’t feel greater now that he didn’t have to swim. Besides, the Hexagon Starfish was faster than he expected. When it was on full speed, he couldn’t have kept up with it without attaching Little Gold to himself. On the way, Han Fei stared at Yang Ruoyun solemnly and stressed again, “We’re cooperating for now, but it doesn’t mean you can flee again. Trust me, you won’t have another chance to squeeze the flash stones. I’ll attack you the moment you show any anomaly.”
Yang Ruoyun said expressionlessly, “Our destination is the same. We’re both going to the center of the Seaborne Prairie. In such a case, why would I run?”
Han Fei did not trust Yang Ruoyun at all at this point. He simply asked, “What’s in the center? I’m not completely ignorant of it, so think carefully before you answer.”
Yang Ruoyun considered for a moment and said, “It is said that there is a huge wood of Big Red Trunk at the center of the Seaborne Prairie that has grown for eons.”
Yang Ruoyun looked at Han Fei and asked, “Have you ever heard about the Millennium Snapper before?”
Han Fei tilted his head and said, “What if I have, and what if I haven’t?”.
With sorrow in her eyes, Yang Ruoyun said, “The Millennium Snapper is an alluring fish that can control spiritual plants. It’s said that their sounds are the most marvelous music in the ocean.”
Of course, Han Fei knew it. He also knew that the Millennium Snapper was almost undying in areas that had abundant spiritual plants.
Seeing that Han Fei was tranquil, Yang Ruoyun was rather surprised. “You knew this?”
Han Fei’s lips curled. “Are you surprised? How is the Big Red Trunk related to the Millennium Snapper? Why are you going there if it’s so dangerous?”
Yang Ruoyun shook her head. “That’s none of your business. My purpose here is different from yours. You’re all here to look for treasures and grow stronger, but I’m here to seek an answer. Thirty-two members of the Yang family have died here. I’m the last living person in my family now. But I have to come here too.”
Han Fei rolled his eyes. “You think I’m an idiot? Why would you come here to kill yourself if all your family have died here?”
Yang Ruoyun said, “Heavenly Talents like you would never understand. Who would ever dare to come to the level-three fishery without the exploration of the generations of pioneers?”
Han Fei mocked Yang Ruoyun’s explanation and did not believe it at all. He didn’t think that her family were full of scientists that explored the mysteries of the ocean.
Yang Ruoyun was not bothered by Han Fei’s attitude. Staring at the front, she said slowly, “The dragon boats sent a lot of people to places that are too dangerous to visit for other people every year. The places with the most victims are naturally the most dangerous places, and the central area at the Seaborne Prairie is one of them.”
Han Fei asked in confusion, “A lot of people are sent each year?” Yang Ruoyun nodded. “Explorers are sent every time the boats drop by. You might not see a lot of people on your way, but that’s just because they entered this area from other routes.”
Han Fei was surprised. “Even if they might be killed here?”
Yang Ruoyun nodded again. “Yes!”
Suddenly, Han Fei thought of something else. “What about the experts on the dragon boats? The Hidden Fishers and the Hanging Fishers?”
Yang Ruoyun said, “Maybe they know it, and maybe they don’t. There was a Hidden Fisher who died here. Since then, no experts came here anymore.”
Han Fei sneered. “Then why do they keep sending Dangling Fishers here?”. Yang Ruoyun said casually, “You don’t understand the darkness of this world. Certain secrets are more important than lives.”
