Mu Ningxue was able to dive quicker. She soon reached the twilight zone of the ocean where the water was relatively muddy. Following Lingling’s instruction, she soon located Bobby.
Her vision underwater was very limited. Mu Ningxue barely saw a human figure around five hundred meters away. It was most likely the Water Mage, Bobby.
(Ed. Note: Limited?! Five Hundred meters? At that depth? You can’t see that far in crystal water at the surface! Just roll with it…)
However, when she was moving closer, she discovered a shadowy figure. It had a long body, fully covered in sharp objects like swords. It seemed to be chasing after something rapidly.
The Drowning Curse Maggot was totally invisible in the water. Mu Ningxue could only tell that the Drowning Curse Maggot was being chased by the spiked sea monster judging from the movement of the water!
“Freeze!” Mu Ningxue chanted silently and fired a frostbolt at the Sharp-Sworded Sea Monster.
The temperature of the seawater started to drop, as a thick layer of ice quickly appeared, and surrounded the Sharp-Sworded Sea Monster.
The water turned into ice and hindered the Sharp-Sworded Sea Monster. It was obvious that the sea monster’s speed had reduced dramatically.
Mu Ningxue’s legs moved in a circular motion to keep her still in the water. She opened her arms and quickly summoned long ice chains around herself.
She pointed her finger at the Sharp-Sworded Sea Monster. The ice chains rapidly entangled it, as if it was being tied down in layers of heavy chains. The sea monster was having difficulty swimming!
“I’ll finish it off, how dare it try to kill our bait!” Mo Fan finally arrived.
Seeing that Mu Ningxue had restrained the Sharp-Sworded Sea Monster, Mo Fan drew the Star Pattern of the Space Element.
A rhomboid appeared around the Sharp-Sworded Sea Monster. The water inside it suddenly vanished.
The space started compressing, squeezing the Sharp-Sworded Sea Monster that was trapped within it. The swords poking out from its skin were snapped in half.
With a deep thud, the Sharp-Sworded Sea Monster died in an explosion as soon as its body reached its limit. Thick, fresh blood spread through the muddy seawater.
“Describe the appearance of the sea monster to me,” Lingling’s voice came from the communication device.
“This device is pretty good, we can stay in contact underwater!” Mo Fan used the Space Element to keep himself from the water and said, “It’s a long fish with spikes like swords all over its body. It wasn’t very strong, either…”
“It’s the Sword Quills Sea Monster,” Mu Ningxue told Lingling, rolling her eyes at Mo Fan after hearing his description.
Why couldn’t he work harder to equip himself with useful knowledge? These Sword Quills Sea Monsters were a very common species. Mu Ningxue immediately had a worried look. She should have stopped Mo Fan from killing the creature.
“Don’t the Sword Quills Sea Monsters usually stay in their colonies? Don’t tell me you’ve made a mess out of it?” Lingling said.
“A mess?” Mo Fan glanced at the blood that was diluting slowly in the seawater and chuckled, “It wasn’t too bad, wait, did you just say they usually stay in colonies…”
“Err, guys, please take a look around you,” Bobby said in a trembling voice.
The muddy water started to stir up as similar shadowy figures appeared in their surroundings. There were only a few circling the area hesitantly, but not long after, more shadowy figures suddenly showed up! There was soon a whole school of them!
“You idiot, the entire colony is going to gather once they pick up the scent of their kind. Come back to the boat, now!” Lingling yelled into the communication device.
Mo Fan had paid the price for not studying hard enough.
He didn’t dare argue with Lingling. He was about to tell Mu Ningxue and Bobby to leave when he realized the two were already heading for the surface.
The two were much better swimmers than Mo Fan. He quickly spread his limbs and dug his way up!
“Hey, wait for me, help me out!”
Mo Fan would be unruffled if he was still on land. However, his fighting capacity significantly weakened underwater. He immediately panicked when he saw the Sword Quills Sea Monsters rapidly gathering around him.
“Back off!” Mo Fan used his thoughts to keep the creatures away by pushing the water around him.
Five Sword Quills Sea Monsters that were approaching Mo Fan from different directions were knocked flying instantly, colliding into others that were gradually getting closer to him.
However, the number of Sword Quills Sea Monsters was quite shocking, and they were extremely quick when moving around in the water. Mo Fan only saw countless shadowy figures stabbing at him like swords. He had nowhere to run to.
The seawater around him was stirred up greatly. Mo Fan almost lost his balance. The only Element that would work effectively underwater was his Lightning. Mo Fan unleashed the lightning saved up in his body to paralyze the Sword Quills Sea Monster trying to get closer to him.
The Lightning was conducted imperiously through the water. Mo Fan gradually expanded the electric field of the Lightning Strike to a Lightning Disaster!
The Lightning Disaster was like a giant, glowing web in the water, and the Sword Quills Sea Monsters immediately ended up as fish caught in a net. They were struggling fiercely as their bodies were scorched by the lightning!
Mo Fan was about to assert control over the situation when he discovered an enormous shadow approaching him from below.
Mo Fan lowered his gaze and saw a huge, black hole appearing in the cloudy seawater. It sprang up at a shocking pace and devoured Mo Fan.
While Mo Fan was taken by surprise, he suddenly saw a white ice chain appearing in front of him.
It was Mo Fan’s life-saving rope. He grabbed onto the ice chain firmly. Mu Ningxue had already reached the surface. She pulled and dragged Mo Fan out of the water.
Mo Fan was around a few hundred meters from the surface. The black shadow was chasing right behind him, knocking the Sword Quills Sea Monsters away.
Back aboard the boat, Lingling was standing on the deck.
Bobby and Mu Ningxue were already on the boat. Mu Ningxue was holding an ice chain, pulling it out of the water like a fishing line.
The ice chain kept on rising, and with a great splash, a drenched guy was pulled out of the water.
Right after the splash, the water in the area suddenly rumbled. It was so huge that it almost turned into a whirlpool big enough to devour the boat.
A deep, black mouth sprang out from the exact same spot that Mo Fan came out from and jumped for Mo Fan in the air.
Mo Fan was as tiny as an earthworm on a fishing line compared to the sea monster that had only revealed half of its head above the water. It was a shocking sight, and even the boat was like a toy in front of it!
“Mo Fan!” Lingling screamed when she saw the giant mouth swallowing Mo Fan with the ice chain.
Water from the splash started pouring down like a rain, and amid it, the black sea monster flipped backward with half its body in the air and fell back into the ocean.
“Stop it, don’t let it reach the deep sea!” Lingling said.
Mu Ningxue reacted fairly quickly. She was already drawing the Ice Constellation as Mo Fan was eaten by the creature.
As soon as the huge black Sword Quills Sea Monster fell to the surface of the ocean, an icy Icebound Coffin with a strong presence of death landed heavily on it , freezing it along the surface of the water!
The Icebound Coffin was incredibly powerful. The water within three hundred meters instantly turned into a layer of ice. The thick layer of ice connected with the mountain of Icebound Coffin, a spectacular sight!
“Lightning Arm: Death Bolt!”
With a loud roar, a black bolt of lightning burst out from the enormous sea monster’s mouth. It even penetrated Mu Ningxue’s ice and soared into the sky.
Mo Fan jumped out from the hole he blasted open with the death bolt.
He immediately manipulated the broken pieces of ice and constructed a flight of stairs in the air. After descending to a certain height, he did a front flip and landed impressively in front of Mu Ningxue.
He raised his brows confidently at Mu Ningxue to further highlight how cool and handsome he was. He was pretty sure that it would make a lot of young girls scream.
“What a retard,” Mu Ningxue’s response was blatant as usual. She did not give Mo Fan any room for imagination.
It was not like Mu Ningxue had a bad temper, but she could not help but feel disgusted when this guy who was drenched in a monster’s saliva was pulling off such a shameless act. She could even feel her goosebumps rising!
“I’ll slay that son of a bitch, how dare it try to eat me? I will turn it into a Sichuan grilled fish in minutes!”
Mo Fan could not help but feel utterly helpless underwater!
His Fire Element was not available, and his Space Element was greatly hindered too. His Summoning Element was non-existent. The only Elements available were Shadow and Lightning!
Otherwise, how could these Sword Quills Sea Monster have had a chance to hurt their Grandpa Mo Fan? No chance at all!
“Enough, the maggot is already far away. We have to shake these creatures off, we can’t afford to lose the maggot!” Lingling said unpleasantly.
“That was so scary, infuriating so many Sword Quills Sea Monsters at the same time! There’s no way we can kill them all!” Bobby said.
He was only an Intermediate Mage, so he did not have much experience facing so many demon creatures at once.
The engine was fired up. The boat immediately sprang forward, leaving a white wave line along its trail as it moved further away into the ocean.
Meanwhile, the water along the trail behind the boat was stirring up as if it was boiling. The spiked sea monsters kept chasing after the boat relentlessly…
“Can you please make sure what the creatures are before killing them? We are not on land, the demon creatures in the ocean are trickier to deal in terms of both their numbers and strength. Besides, you should try to stay low-key if you’re so weak underwater,” Lingling warned Mo Fan.
“I didn’t expect it to come to this,” Mo Fan turned around and swallowed a few times when he saw the crazy sight behind him.
Fine, it seemed he could not really afford to offend the demon creatures in the ocean!
