Even Innates who survived the huge water war thousands of years of ago could not help but shiver from Yue Yang’s display of power.
How could such a young human being be so powerful?
This was unbelievable.
“Maybe we can discuss this?” Octopus Man Boss finally made a decision. There was no point in even obtaining Mother Earth Potion anymore. Even if they did turn back to human form, this youngster would kill everyone. Rather than go through a struggle between life and death, it would be best to work together with him.
“We wish to be free. “ Whale Zhang opened his mouth and hummed: “If you can break the seal and take us away from here, Mother Earth Potion is yours. “
“Where is the seal?” Yue Yang asked without hesitation.
“At the bottom of the sea. “ Swordfish man Blast was first to dive into the water to guide the way for Yue Yang and Hornless Dragon Jiang Ying.
Once Hornless Dragon Jiang Ying entered the water, she immediately displayed her extremely elegant form, not losing to beasts like Stone Element Medusa, Storm Mermaid and the other beasts who were matchless in water battles. In the water, she was even more powerful, like a fish who has just returned to the waters. She looked even more at home than even the Hybrid Fishmen. The Hybrid Fishmen were stunned. They realised they had made the extremely right decision earlier. When it came to water war, the ability of these two was not beneath them at all. If they had really started fighting, the consequences would have been devastating.
In the deep sea, countless sunken ships and sunken islands appeared before Yue Yang’s eyes.
Such a scene displays the horror and scale of that horrible war back in the day.
In even deeper waters, there were countless rune circles that had congregated into a single whole. Some were blood red, some were golden, some dark green, some silver. The rune circles were all different. Some were big while others were small, they were all in strange shapes. However, the rune circles were all linked up together and kept absorbing the energy of the sea.
At the same time, it radiated a special ripple.
While this ripple had no effect on Yue Yang and Hornless Dragon Jiang Ying, it was extremely effective in binding the Hybrid Fishmen.
It seemed like an invisible lock that imprisoned all of the Hybrid Fishmen in this collapsed space.
Even though they could move freely in this vast sea, there was no way they could leave this ‘Graveyard of the Sea’. They were prisoners imprisoned here forever, with their freedom deprived as long as the rune circles were not unsealed. Yue Yang could even sense another seal within the bodies of the Hybrid Fishmen. This seal that was created by an Innate of an unknown level of skill prevented them from leaving water for their entire lives. Even if they did leave the water, it would only be temporary and not in any way similar to a normal human who could stay on land for a long time.
Mother Earth Potion might be able to turn these Hybrid Fishmen back into their original human bodies.
However, it would only be a ridiculous dream for them to ever leave the water.
Unless they unlocked the seal within them….. Yue Yang used Heaven Eyes Divine Vision and realised that the seal was very tightly intertwined with their Hybrid body. It would be difficult to return to their human form, but it would be even harder to release the seal.
It could be said that the Innate who placed this seal on their bodies had almost blocked any way for them to return to land in their human bodies.
“There are so many runes circles here and they cover the whole seabed. Is there anyway to unlock them?” Octopus Man Boss was actually not very optimistic. Even with the knowledge and power of more than thirty Innates, and after thousands of years of investigating they had still not found a way to unlock these runes. Was it really reasonable to depend on this young human who was only about twenty years of age?”
“Don’t worry, let him take a look first. “ When Hornless Dragon Jiang Ying saw the commotion among the Hybrid Fishmen, she immediately started comforting them to calm them down.
“……” While the Hybrid Fishmen were hoping for Yue Yang to be able to unlock the seal, they were also afraid that the higher their expectations, the more disappointed they would be. They were very anxious.
“Can you even do anything?! Do you want us to die from anxiousness by just looking and not saying anything?” Mudskipper Man could not stand it any longer.
“Shut up!” Swordfish Man Blast roared. Mudskipper Man was terrified and shut up immediately.
Only after staring for a long while did Yue Yang open his mouth casually: “This underwater seal is not complicated, it is just tedious and would take a long time to unlock. Rather it is the seal within your bodies that would be very troublesome. Even if you all got out, it is very likely that you will all have to live underwater for the rest of your lives. Even if you all returned to your human forms, you will have to live underwater. “
Actually all the Hybrid Fishmen were well aware of the latter outcome.
If that was not the case, they would also not have chosen to become Fishmen monsters and hibernate under the sea for thousand of years.
The only thing they desired was to leave the Graveyard of the Sea.
Freedom, was more important than anything else.
When they heard that Yue Yang knew how to unlock the underwater seal, these Hybrid Fishmen were disbelieving at first. When they saw Yue Yang’s serious expression, they realised he did not looked like he was lying and were beyond excited. After hibernating for thousand of years, they had lived in indescribable loneliness and pain even though they have survived that terrible war. They did not even dare dream of leaving the Graveyard of the Sea because of the seal on them. They had only been able to hibernate and await an opportunity.
Since both sides have a foundation for cooperation, things have become much easier.
Octopus Man Boss introduced himself to Yue Yang and Jiang Ying and told them he called himself “Pan Chan”. Yue Yang almost wanted to tell him that it would actually be much cooler if he called himself ‘Paul’.
Other than the strongest being Octopus Man Boss, the second strongest had to be Swordfish Man Blast, followed by Whale Zhang.
The three of them decided to accompany Yue Yang and Jiang Ying to enter the underwater whirlpool and head to Crystal Canyon.
Mudskipper Man also looked like he wanted to go.
He kept murmuring to himself.
He wanted to go, yet he was too embarrassed to request to go.
A Level Five Innate, he was actually one of the weakest among the Hybrid Fishmen. Since Yue Yang had just ignored him, he was going crazy!
After entering the underwater whirlpool, they have landed in Crystal Canyon.
Yue Yang realised that this place was very strange. It was extremely similar to the Canyon of Despair, but there was no water here. All of the seawater were floating high in the sky, forming a weird dome underwater. In front of his eyes, there were giant formations of crystal sparkling. All of the surfaces, stone mountains, anything that the eye could see were made of crystal. Tiny crystals covered the ground, while large crystals formed hills and there were countless crystal pillars, forming all sorts of impressive sights.
(Last: atlantis anyone?)
The middle of the canyon was sunken in, forming a path that was scattered with countless crystals.
This place not only brimmed with the power from the crystals, there was also a rule of restriction. There could only be five people here at the same time, once the maximum was reached, not even beasts could be summoned.
The Crystal Canyon was huge, and most likely at least a few kilometers long from the start to the end.
Crystals covered everything as far as the eye could see.
Even though Yue Yang had seen countless rare treasures, he could not help but sigh at the sight of the Crystal Canyon.
If one had time to cultivate here and absorb the power of the crystals, the power from the crystals would most likely make the whole process a lot smoother and much easier. Sickly Beauty would most likely benefit the most, she was born compatible with crystals. If he brought her here to cultivate, she would most likely progress rapidly and breakthrough again and again. Just when Yue Yang was thinking, Swordfish Man Blast suddenly hinted: “There, that is the Ancient Guard.”
When Yue Yang raised his head to take a look, he saw a Crystal man that was a Platinum Level 10.
The Crystal man climed the walls of the canyon as if they were flying. He was so fast and agile as an ape. It looked like it was walking on ground instead of climbing the walls.
This ‘Crystal Man’ had a body that was transparent like crystal, similar to Battle Dolls like Rock Golem, but it definitely had a life and was not a machine. Yue Yang stared in blankly at it. It was somewhat similar to a human, but on its back were crystal-shaped barb. It had no hair, but instead on its head was crystal-shaped sharp squarish beams that were arranged in a very unique manner. Its facial features were not significantly different from a human although made of crystal. It had a tall nose and deep set eyes, but there was nothing where his mouth was meant to be, making it clear that it did not have to eat like ordinary living things.
“What would happen if I killed it?” Yue Yang did not really want to kill it, but wanted to capture one to study it.
“It is impossible to kill it. Once it dies, it will be resurrected immediately here. Since it is made of crystal, unless the whole Crystal Canyon is destroyed, it can not die.” Octopus Man Boss Pan Chan explained.
As they talked, more Ancient Guards appeared.
They should not be intelligent.
But even with only their instinct, they were already very outstanding.
The first Crystal Man who realised the presence of intruders did not attack immediately, but instead, waited a short distance away for its companions.
If Mother Earth Potion were to be born now, Yue Yang would not be so courteous and showed off his skills to attack all these Ancient Guards. But for now, there were still two more days until the Mother Earth Potion will be born. Yue Yang did not wish to create unnecessary trouble at this time. After he used Heaven Eyes Divine Vision to observe the canyon to confirm the possible places the Mother Earth Potion will be born, he immediately waved his hand and said: “Let us go back for now. We will come back when it is the right time.”
Jiang Ying looked at Yue Yang. She really wanted to ask him whether he found the place where Mother Earth Potion would be born.
He knew at a glance?
He did not have to look carefully?
Since it was Yue Yang, she still chose to believe him.
Even she herself could not explain why she trusted Yue Yang, maybe it was the feeling that he gave others, that he was absolutely trustworthy.
Octopus Man Boss Pan Chan, Swordfish Man Blast and Whale Zhang were all confused, they were just going back like this? If it was so simple, why did the three of them even come?
They had thought that there was going to be a bitter war.
They had not even imagined that they did not even have to do anything and could go back just after one look.
“We will come back in two days, as long as we get Mother Earth Potion, I will unlock the seal for all if you to leave Graveyard of the Sea! If anyone comes here before us, you have to stop them at any cost. If you cannot beat the enemy, just let five people block them from entering by positioning themselves here in Crystal Canyon. The Mother Earth Potion must not fall into the hands of other people. This is the first condition of our alliance. If I successfully obtain the Mother Earth Potion, I will then consider thinking of ways to help you all turn back into human form. “ Yue Yang offered more than sufficient bait by offering to solve all of their problems.
“No problem, we have decided to choose freedom and our human bodies.” Representing all Hybrid Fishmen, Octopus Man Boss made the final call.
Fire Island, Starfish Hotel.
Hai Yingwu saw a drenched man walking through the entrance.
Stunned for a moment, she then realised that this guy was the drowned scum.
Princess Ying’s extremely perverted housekeeper!
This man was said been drinking at Eternal Morning till he was dead drunk and in the end fell into the ocean to become fish food. He actually did not die and survived like a tenacious cockroach. Thinking again, Hai Yingwu felt that this was actually normal, even though this man was so perverted, he must have a certain level of ability since, he did not meet any Underwater Beasts and normal fish and shrimp would never eat him.
Seeing him stagger like he would fall any time, Hai Yingwu had to force herself to go forward to help him with a charming smile.
Who would have thought that this guy would suddenly vomit. A mouth of liquid that was a mixture of seawater and alcoholic acid sprayed all over Hai Yingwu’s majestic breasts. Hai Yingwu hated the vomit that was all over the body, and was so close to strangling him to death on the spot.
“You should drink less, this is not good for your health.” Hai Yingwu used all of her patience to maintain her smile and elegant tone.
“Leave me alone! I, I am not drunk! Puke!” The drunk Yue Yang was going to puke on Hai Yingwu’s chest again. This time, she could not stand it anymore. Seeing that there was no one around, she threw him into the storeroom in disgust. She even kicked him twice ruthlessly before rushing off to take a shower. She no longer bothered to care about this kind of scum.
“……” After she left, the drunk Yue Yang immediately sobbered up. He laughed silently, his eyes full of mockery.
Back in the room, he let Jiang Ying out from the Grimoire World.
Jiang Ying laughed secretly, even though she had not seen the process of Yue Yang teasing Hai Yingwu, she could imagine it. That was why she could not help but laugh, and could not even stop.
Outside, there was a sudden knock on the door.
Yue Yang and Jiang Ying’s faces turned pale at the knock. Neither of them had sensed that someone had come……
Who was it really, that had such terrifying stealth ability to conceal himself from Yue Yang and Jiang Ying’s perception? Could it be that it was Ocean Emperor?
