Chapter 216 - Great Plate Octopus



Chapter 216 Great Plate Octopus

Han Fei didn’t know if there were rainforests in this world, but the woods like the Deep-Sea Jungle were the main source of oxygen here.

When there was more oxygen, the body size of creatures tended to go bigger. Han Fei had found that the creatures here were multiple times bigger and stronger than their counterparts in other places.

At this point, the situation was obvious. Tremendous amounts of seaweeds were floating along the current like a green undersea carpet, but the carpet was a dangerous one. Apart from anything else, the hundreds of sea urchins on the carpet were terrifying enough.

An explosion burst out a thousand meters away. Everybody saw a ball being shot at them by something. It turned out to be a Dragon-Head Fish a couple of meters long, and it was chasing the ball with its sharp teeth.

Zhang Xuanyu asked in amazement, “Isn’t this place very dangerous? Why is this Dragon-Head Fish playing with a ball?”

However, Han Fei saw the data of the ball, which was not a real ball.

<Name> Great Plate Octopus

<Introduction> This is a rare squid in the undersea jungles. It’s highly intelligent, and it’s eyes can help with the training of Pupil Spells.

<Collectible> Squid Eyes

<Absorbable>

When it was closer, everybody noticed that the ball was actually made of a bunch of shells, and that outside of the shells were plenty of sucking discs.

Zhang Xuanyu’s face slightly changed. “An octopus?”

The other people’s faces slightly changed too, but Han Fei was quite excited, as he had never seen an octopus before.

Luo Xiaobai pulled Han Fei back and said, “Don’t get close! The octopus will claim to have much more strength than squids. They’re rare in level-one and level-two fisheries. Because they are too strong, an operation is conducted to hunt them every hundred years.”

Han Fei was surprised. “They’re hunted regularly?”

As Han Fei recalled, the octopus was a smart but timid creature. Had it also become a strong creature in this place?

As they talked, Han Fei saw that the Dragon-Head Fish bit one corner of the ball and spun it hard, which was a regular way of hunting to tear apart their prey.

However, the prey of the Dragon-Head Fish was in a ball this time, and it could also spin. While the ball was spinning, two tentacles suddenly stretched out and stabbed into the Dragon-Head Fish’s gills, before they pressed into its head.

Everybody was chilled by what they saw.

Wenren Yu said casually, “The octopus was only hunting with itself as the bait. It may seem small, but it can easily tear this Dragon-Head Fish into halves.” Hardly had Wenren Yu finished when the ball was opened and all the shells dispersed, revealing the real appearance of the octopus that was almost four meters long. While escaping with the Dragon-Head Fish, it peeped at Han Fei.

The Great Plate Octopus seemed to have sensed danger. During its escape, its body color changed from red to green while it disappeared into the seaweed with the Dragon-Head Fish.

Xia Xiaochan remarked, “This octopus seems smart!”

Le Renkuang nodded. “It noticed us a long time ago and has been observing them. If a lot of them are gathered, they can be much trickier than squid and cuttlefish.” Luo Xiaobai said, “Let’s go! This is just a common place in the jungle. We should press on.”

Everybody agreed with her, and Wenren Yu slightly shook her head. Those kids are as bold as her and her friends back in the day. She and her friends also explored many dangerous lands, until…

The seaweeds floated with the rhythm of the current, and Han Fei swam forward dozens of meters above them. Occasionally, the sea urchins would shoot their thorns at the intruders, but they all reacted fast enough and avoided the thorns easily.


Very soon, everybody saw bamboo wood.

Yes, it was bamboo wood at the bottom of the ocean. From the bamboo poles almost a hundred meters tall, leaves were falling now and then.

Zhang Xuanyu’s eyes bulged. “Is that… Bamboo? So much bamboo?”

He Xiaoyu was rather shocked too, as they were the bamboo rods that He Xiaoyu used at the beginning. He had thought that bamboo was rare in the ocean, but there was too much to be counted here.

Luo Xiaobai unleashed her vines to the bamboo, but then many long insects that were melded with the bamboo attacked the vines.

<Name> Walkingsticks

<Introduction> They live with bamboo and feed on fish. When they’re dead, they will become bamboo seeds.

<Level> 22

<Quality> Regular

<Spiritual Energy> 404 Points

<Effect> Can be refined into pills and enhance the body. <Collectible> None

<Absorbable>

Everybody came to a stop, and Luo Xiaobai said, “There are too many bugs here. We need to figure something out!” Han Fei said, “Wait a minute.”

Everybody looked at him, and Han Fei simply took out his fishing pole, cast the hook, and pulled back one of the bamboo shoots.

Everyone: “???”

Han Fei continued casting the hook. “What are you waiting for? Natural sea bamboo shoots are a delicious food that you can’t get on the floating island.”

Everyone: “…”

Le Renkuang immediately cast his hook and said, “Han Fei, you’re my idol. Why can you think of food when you see anything when I can’t?”

Han Fei snorted. “Do you know what’s most important for ocean creatures?”

Le Renkuang shook his head.

“Eating!”

Han Fei put on a smile. “All ocean creatures are busy getting food every day, so most of them are edible except the poisonous ones, although you should carefully consider how to eat them.”

Xia Xiaochan remarked, “Han Fei, you definitely should be a fatty.”

Zhang Xuanyu agreed with her. “That’s right. You’re much better at this than Le Renkuang. I don’t know why you’re getting slimmer.”

Han Fei grumbled. “Nobody should refuse delicious food. I only appreciate delicious foods, but I’m not a glutton. Of course I won’t grow fat.”

Considering that they counted on Han Fei for their food in the following month, everybody began to fish for the sea bamboo shoots and didn’t stop until they obtained a thousand kilograms.

Passing through the bamboo woods, Han Fei’s team had to cross a place of rocks that were covered by seaweed. They were about to go through, when an enormous whip slapped them.

Luo Xiaobai’s face changed. “We’ve been ambushed.”

Her vines slapped the whip quickly. Then, everybody finally saw that it was a huge tentacle more than ten meters long.

At the same time, tentacles were whipping them from all directions.

Luo Xiaobai said, “It’s an octopus.”

Without Luo Xiaobai saying it, everybody had seen an octopus dozens of meters long right next to a rock in the same color as the rock.

Han Fei said excitedly, “Fatty, go easy on it and don’t break it. We can cook it later after you kill it.”

Le Renkuang was lost for words after he released his weapons. This octopus was truly unlucky to have run into Han Fei, and its only ending would be in a pot.

However, the tentacles of the octopus were filled with spiritual energy and slapped away Le Renkuang’s blades.

Luo Xiaobai said, “It’s above level thirty. Let’s work together. Blue…”

Dozens of vines erupted from the bottom of the ocean and blocked the tentacles, but the tentacles were much swifter than the vines. They simply bypassed the vines and attacked Han Fei with the creepy sucking discs.

It was Han Fei’s turn to take action. He cut the tentacles with multiple Blue Sea Wandering Dragon Daggers, freezing the tentacles. Then, Xia Xiaochan flashed and appeared next to the octopus’s head, giving it quite a shock. She stabbed her dagger into its head before it realized what was going on. However, the octopus was not to be killed so easily, because it had three hearts and nine brains. For that, it was even suspected to be an alien creature.


Immediately, many tentacles tried to strangle Xia Xiaochan, but Xia Xiaochan simply flashed away and left her Red Fire Tricky Lobster behind.

It was the only fire-natured contractual spiritual beast. After it crawled into the head of the Great Plate Octopus, everybody saw that the head of the octopus was reddening. Its brains had probably been burnt up.

Han Fei said in a hurry, “Hey! Wait! How can we eat it if you burn it up?”

Xia Xiaochan: “…”

Wenren Yu had been observing them in silence. This Great Plate Octopus was truly unfortunate to run into those guys. It could’ve killed a regular great fishing master if it hadn’t run into Han Fei’s team.

Han Fei suddenly looked at Wenren Yu. “Master, is there still room in your Sea Swallowing Seashell?”
