Tales Of The World Devouring Serpent - Chapter 277
1/5 chapter, enjoy.
They rowed the sailing boat to the two islands ahead. Due to the lack of wind, their sailing boat finally reached the two islands after half an hour.
“Brother, these two islands are quite big.”
Du Qiu looked at the two islands in front of them with a smile on his face. Large islands usually have a stable ecosystem, they have more living creatures and more fruits, which basically means more resources for them to hoard.
Zhao Cheng also smiled, his eyes swept the two islands in front of them. These two islands are very close together. He guessed that these two islands might in fact be just one, they should be connected underwater.
According to his observations, one of two islands is very long, slightly curling at the tip, making a shape very close to the Arabic Numeral, 1.
The other island is oval, but not completely a circle, it’s more similar to the shape of an egg, making it look like the Arabic Numeral, 0.
These two islands put next to each other makes them look like 10 if seen from above.
Of course, Zhao Cheng doesn’t know about Arabic numerals, he just felt that these two islands look like the number 10 when put together.
“Dock! Dock the boat!”
Zhao Cheng quickly snapped out of his thoughts, then started shouting. By this time, they have already reached the island. They got off the boat, then connected the rope to a rock on the shore.
“Du Qiu, Arlong, let’s go.”
Zhao Cheng said to his companions, then jumped off the boat and walked towards the island.
There are many plants on the island, but most of them are bushes and algae. There are some tall trees, but their number is relatively few.
On the shore, Zhao Cheng glanced roughly at this island, then walked to the are with a lot of trees, his companions following behind them.
This mountain road is not very easy to walk on. It’s very rocky and there are many bushes along the way.
However, after walking for a certain distance, Zhao Cheng started to feel that something is wrong.
The soil here is a bit strange.
He kicked a bunch of weeds away, revealing the soil underneath, then ground the soil below with the sole of his shoes, his brows furrowed.
“Brother, Is there something wrong?”
Seeing him like this, Du Qiu and the rest of their companions looked at each other, then looked back at Zhao Cheng with a puzzled look.
“Du Qiu, something is amiss, didn’t you notice that there is a lot of fish scales inside the soil?”
Zhao Cheng pointed to the soil that he messed up and said to Da Qiu.
Hearing this, Du Qiu also noticed that something wrong. He crouched down and started to carefully check the soil under their feet.
He grabbed a small handful of dirt from the place that Zhao Cheng cleared with his feet, then he started to twirl the soil in his fingers.
Inside the gray-brown soil, there are bright and shiny things that look like fish scales.
Du Qiu and Zhao Cheng looked at each other. Usually, fish scales and carapaces appearing on an island isn’t that strange, but this is too much. It’s as if countless fish and shrimp died on this island in the past.
“The soil isn’t hard enough. I suspect that the soil was piled up here after the fish decayed.”
Zhao Cheng said to the rest of his companions, then waved his hand and said.
“Forget it, we don’t have to care about this problem, let’s go around and search for wild fruits.”
Du Qiu and the others responded, then spread out.
Zhao Cheng was left alone. He looked around, then walked towards the top of the mountain. After a while, he reached the highest ground on this island, then started to survey its terrain.
This island is oval, with a huge bludge in the middle of the island. It looks very similar to that of the carapace of a huge turtle.
When this thought flashed in his mind, Zhao Cheng’s eyes widened. He ran down the mountain at his fastest speed, quickly reached the place where their boat is docked. He took out a shovel from the boat, then ran back to the island.
He ran back to the place where they stopped before, then started digging down with the shovel. The soil here is particularly brittle, and due to his athlete-level physical fitness, he quickly dug down a big pit.
“Brother Cheng, what are you doing?”
At this time, Du Qiu walked over with joy on his face. On this island, they found a lot of wild fruits, which will guarantee their consumption for a long time.
Du Qiu was preparing to inform Zhao Cheng of the good news, but he saw that Zhao Cheng was digging on the ground with a shovel?
What is he doing?
Zhao Cheng, who was digging the pit excitedly, ignored Du Qiu. He continued to strike the soil with a shovel, digging down even further. After half an hour, Zhao Cheng’s eyes suddenly lit up, then he started laughing madly.
“Rich! We are going to get rich.”
He turned to Du Qiu and said with a bright look on his face, his eyes almost turning into the money symbol.
“Du Qiu, we are about to get rich!”
“Brother, what did you find?”
Du Qiu looked at the madly laughing Zhao Cheng with a stunned look. In fact, all of the rest of their companions are the same,
They looked at each other with a puzzled look, then walked towards Zhao Cheng.
Zhao Cheng stood in that big pit with a smile, his eyes flashing with greed, and a hint of drool on his face.
Du Qiu and the rest walked towards the big pit in unison, then looked at what is inside the pit. After that look, their faces changed simultaneously.
Du Qiu was so shocked that he couldn’t even speak. At the bottom of the big pit, they didn’t find the usual soil, but a rock-like thing at the bottom, it color id greenish-cyan, and it does look more like a carapace or something
“Dang! Dang! Dang!”
Zhao Cheng smashed the carapace-like object with the shovel in his hands, making the sound of metal collisions.
“Did you see? This is no mud or even rock.”
He smiled, then expanded the size of pit a bit, revealing the hard “Rock” even more clearly.
“Let’s do this together.”
Du Qiu saw that there was something amiss at a glance, he quickly walked towards the boat, picked up a shovel, then ran back to help Zhao Cheng. The rest of their companions also quickly joined them, helping them remove the soil.
In just an hour, due to a variety of factors such as the soft soil, the super-physical fitness that the seven have, and the fact that soil isn’t very thick, they managed to dig a big pit with a diameter of more than 40 meters.
As expected, below the soil is that blue-greenish rock-like substance. It’s also extremely hard, far beyond the hardness of rocks, even if they swung their shovel at maximum power, they weren’t able to leave even a scratch on it.
The wider the area they dugout, the more they felt that this rock-like substance is similar to a carapace of a fish scales.
“Brother Cheng. Is this one of the “Kaiju” that destroyed the original human civilization?”
Du Qiu licked his lips and asked the excited Zhao Cheng next to him.
“It’s hard to say..”
Zhao Cheng’s face was filled with a grin.
“It’s probably is, but if this entire island is a giant beast or “kaiju” then the other island not far away is one as well.”
His eyes turned to the long island not far away, causing his heart to beat even more vigorously.
It has been a long time since the adventure rush began. Due to the fact that no other monster body was found after the giant octopus, many people started doubting whether any other complete monster body remains in the ocean.
Apart from the reward people will receive after giving information about monster bodies to the governement. There are many people who want to buy information and even complete bodies of giant monsters. Their bodies can be sold at sky-high prices!
Unfortunately, up to this point, only false information about giant monsters was circulating, and no one has ever bought or sold a giant monster body before.
Right now, Zhao Cheng feels that perhaps everyone’s perception of giant monsters and kaiju’s body is going to change because of them.
