The secret passage of the Specter was like a sewer system: dark, narrow, and badly-conditioned. There was no telling where it led to.
The faceless woman said, “Just go down the passage. Every door that has the engraving of a madman is an exit. However, please try to contain the saber vibe in you. It’s too intense.”
Han Fei was briefly stunned. Another person had pointed out the saber aura in him. But why couldn’t he feel anything?
He did not consider it a big deal. Even if he did, he would not know how to hide it at all either.
What Han Fei could do was try to make himself as peaceful as an ordinary person.
He did not completely trust the faceless woman either. Who knew what was inside the passage? So, he specifically spoke to Hexagon Starfish telepathically, Mr. Hexagon Starfish, are there barriers here? Can I get out with a Flash Stone?
The Hexagon Starfish, who had been pretending to be a weakling, replied, I don’t smell any barriers! If we run into any, I can break them.
Hearing what the Hexagon Starfish said, Han Fei nodded and went into the narrow and long passage.
After about five kilometers, Han Fei finally saw the first door that had the engraving of a madman.
But the hideousness of the engraving rendered him speechless. The so-called madman was actually a bearded, half-naked, brawny man with ferocious eyes. He was holding giant axes in his hands, as if he were ready to cut any visitor apart.
“This is so ugly.”
Han Fei did not choose the first exit. According to the faceless woman, there seemed to be a lot of doors with madman engravings. He decided to be more random about it.
In the meantime, Han Fei spoke to the Hexagon Starfish, Mr. Hexagon Starfish, give me a Six Gate Array.
The Hexagon Starfish replied, It’s safe here.
Han Fei said, But it might not be safe after we get out. I spent too much money today. Someone may be tailing me.
Something wriggled on his shoulder, and an invisible array was cast on Han Fei.
Han Fei couldn’t help but remark, Mr. Hexagon Starfish, your array is so much better than mine. How long have you studied it?
The Hexagon Starfish said, I never studied it; I’m naturally capable of it!
Han Fei: “…”
Han Fei was too angry to talk. Was this the benefit of heritages? He had read the Spirit Gathering Scripture for a year, but he hadn’t quite figured out arrays yet. The Hexagon Starfish, on the other hand, was capable of it without any learning. He didn’t know what to say.
About half an hour later, when Han Fei reached the ninth door with the madman engraving, he finally walked out.
There was not an aisle behind the door. He found himself at a corner in a cabin after he exited the passage. Nobody was around.
Han Fei secretly took a breath of relief. He looked back and mumbled at the door, “It’s really ugly.”
After several hundred meters, Han Fei said to the Hexagon Starfish, “Mr. Hexagon Starfish, let me tell you, forget about the shiny garbage. Take me to more treasure troves when you’re free. If we work together, we can explore any place in the level-three fishery, can’t we?”
Hexagon Starfish are all cowards. Is there any point in saying that to it?
While Han Fei was trying to fool the Hexagon Starfish, someone chuckled hoarsely and casually from a corner.
Instantly, Han Fei was having goosebumps. Had he been approached?
Subconsciously, Han Fei took out the Blood Drinking Knife in a defensive posture. The guy was so close to him without alarming him, which indicated that the guy was very strong
Han Fei looked at the source of the sound and did find a faceless man in a corner.
To Han Fei’s surprise, the corner was not the one where he came out just now. It was not dark. He should’ve seen it even without his mental senses. However, he had neglected the corner just now.
Han Fei asked warily, “Who are you?”
In a low voice, the man chuckled and said, “I’m a faceless man!”
Frowning, Han Fei said, “I’m sorry, but I’m in a rush. I don’t have time for chitchat.”
But the man simply laughed and said, “What are you rushing for? Are you worried that I’ll eat you? You have the smell of the Big Red Trunk! Well, I haven’t smelled it since a long time ago.”
Paused, Han Fei couldn’t have looked more awful. “What do you want?”
Seats were nonexistent on the Specter, and it was damp everywhere. However, none of the guests cared. They had formed the habit of sitting on the ground.
Han Fei’s critical weakness had been pointed out. He had plenty of the Big Red Trunk left, but he had sold the spiritual stones without revealing the Big Red Trunk. Yet, this guy pointed it out casually. How could Han Fei not be shocked?
After a pause, Han Fei sat down on the faceless man’s opposite side. “What now?”
The faceless man smirked. “You want to kill me? Don’t worry. I’m not interested in the Big Red Trunk, not as much as in you. You’re even sturdier than a peak-level Dangling Fisher. How did you manage it?”
Han Fei snorted. “By luck.”
The man laughed. “Thousands of people are looking for luck, but none of them are as sturdy as you… Fine. I’m too lazy to interrogate you. You said something was ugly just now. What’s ugly?”.
Naturally, Han Fei couldn’t speak the truth. So he simply said, “I was talking about the mask.”
But the man shrugged and said, “You were saying that the madman engraving is ugly, weren’t you?”
Han Fei was stunned again. “You came from the secret passage too?”
The man grimaced. “Of course… And I agree with you. You may find it hard to believe, but I tried to modify that engraving by creating a better replacement. I sold it to the Specter, but they didn’t take it.”
Han Fei was lost for words. Are you a psycho? Who do you think you are? Do you expect them to just take everything you sell?
However, Han Fei’s face did not betray himself. He said casually, “Then why don’t you keep creating? Maybe you can meet the requirements of the Specter someday.”
The man said, “Why don’t you draw me one? I can try selling it for you.”
Han Fei said coldly, “Do I look like I have nothing better to do?”
The man was rather choked. “I don’t know about you, but I have nothing to do! I’m too lazy to go to the sea. I’m nothing better than a salty fish now.”
Han Fei: “…”
Han Fei said, “Why don’t you keep being a salty fish, while I take my leave first?”
The man scoffed. “Draw it, my friend… I’ve calculated it, boy. You have disaster coming to you.”
As he spoke, the man took out a brush and a fish skin.
Speechlessly, Han Fei stared at the man, wondering what kind of freak he had possibly run into.
However, freakish as the man was, Han Fei didn’t think that he was an ordinary person. Actually, he found that few guests on the Specter were ordinary. They were mostly great experts.
Perhaps, the great experts thought differently from ordinary people. It’s like the geniuses always did things that other people couldn’t understand.
Accepting the brush, Han Fei doodled, and after no more than a hundred seconds, a one-eyed skull with a red ribbon above and two pirate swords below appeared on the fish skin.
Yes, Han Fei had copied the standard symbol of pirates. But it didn’t matter. Since it was just a painting, he didn’t consider it a big deal.
The faceless man exclaimed and said, “Interesting! Boy, you’re suitable for ghost boats.”
Han Fei smiled in disdain. “I don’t have time for ghost boats…”
The man chuckled. “Forget it. You’re too paranoid. Let me see… You have trouble with women.”
Han Fei almost slashed his knife at the faceless man’s head. I thought you were someone awesome, but you’re telling me that I have trouble with women?
Lost for words, Han Fei rose. “I’ve just calculated something about you too.” “Oh?”
Tilting his head, Han Fei said, “According to my calculation, you are a salty fish without dreams. You have trouble with salty fish.”
The faceless man shook his head. “… Naughty.”
When Han Fei turned around, something was suddenly thrown to him. Han Fei subconsciously picked it up, only to find that it was a scroll of fish skin.
The faceless man laughed and said, “If you’re in trouble someday, open this scroll, and it may save your life.”
Han Fei thought to himself, Is he a psycho?
He was about to throw the scroll away, but it seemed inappropriate to drop it in front of the man. So, he put the scroll into Forge the Universe and said, “Thank you. I hope you can keep enjoying your salty fish life.”
He turned around and did not want to stay. Though surprised at the man’s strength, he was also scared of the man’s unpredictability. Who could tell what was on the man’s mind?
Han Fei did not stay on the Specter much longer. Though there might still be plenty of opportunities, he was absolutely penniless at this point, without even a single mid-quality pearl.
Behind Han Fei, the faceless man secretly smiled and closed the fish skin on the ground. Then he mumbled, “What a monster!”
