Tales Of The World Devouring Serpent - Chapter 54
Wu Hai rowed the boat toward the shore, inserting the paddle in his hand in the water. He gently waved back, keeping the boat steadily going forward.
As before, he raised the paddle from the water, before inserting it back, then slowly waving back. His body slightly leaning forward, making rowing the boat easier.
Unexpectedly, the paddle he inserted in the water seemed to have touched something. Wu Hai, surprised, wanted to quickly recover the paddle.
But at this moment. The things touched by the paddle fiercely struggled, striking the paddle with a surprisingly big force. This strike yanked the paddle out of Wu Hai hand and made him almost fall into the water.
The accident caused by Wu Hai made the boat violently tremble. The three girls, feeling the boat shaking, screamed in fear.
They were holding the boat’s side in horror. As if the boat was going to be overturned.
Even Luo Yong next to them was holding the boat side in horror, but he still managed to hold on to his last manly pride by not screaming.
The three girls asked with a shaky voice, subconsciously looking towards the water next to them.
After that glance, their eyes widened in surprise.
They saw that in the water next to their boat, water was surging and while bubbles were everywhere. More importantly, a large shadow was looming underwater.
”Was I discovered?”
Swimming underwater, Fang Yun nervously thought.
When he was swimming under their boat, daydreaming about stuff, the paddle suddenly touched his body.
Completely unprepared, he unconsciously slapped the paddle with his tail and touched the boat by the way.
Fang Yun was speechless, he really wanted to swear. This day was honestly going great and he was truly in a good mood. Did an accident really have to happen?
Now that he was discovered, does he have to leave this place?
”Was that a Big fish?”
On the boat, the three girls looked at the shadow that disappeared underwater with mouths wide open. Xiao Lan snapped back first, then said with amazement.
But then, the look on her face immediately changed to excitement.
“So the shadow that I saw in the morning was not an illusion!”
In the morning, she suspected that shadow she saw might be a fish, but she was not sure. After lunch, she requested Wu Hai to take them on a tour in the reservoir.
The purpose is to try her luck and see if she can meet the “big fish” she saw in the morning.
However, even though the sun is almost setting, she didn’t find anything.
Finally giving up, just as they were leaving. The big fish actually appeared.
Not only did they encounter the big fish, but their boat was almost overturned.
Xiao Lan snorted in annoyance, feeling that this “Big Fish” is really naughty.
Once Xiao Lan and the other girls screamed in fear, it attracted the attention of other people in the reservoir. Quite a few people noticed that the shadow owner seemed to have grey scales.
All of a sudden, everyone reached the same conclusion as Xiao Lan.
There is a very big fish in this reservoir.
The fishing enthusiasts on the shore were all excited. If the fish can make such a big movement, there its size surely isn’t small.
It’s probably a big fish, at least one meter long, maybe even 2 to 3 meters.
As people whose hobby is fishing, nothing is more exciting than discovering a big fish in the reservoir. Everyone is dreaming of flexing on others after catching this big fish.
So each one of them is gearing up, thinking about showing their talents by catching this fish.
Of course, that would be tomorrow. It’s already sunset now. But that’s better, as that would allow them to prepare the necessary equipment for catching a fish that big.
On the small boat, Wu Hai, who is now stably standing on the stern, is hesitantly looking at the place where his boat was almost overturned.
He also saw the shadow swimming underwater and concluded as well that it’s a big fish.
However, he is doubting whether it’s this big fish that has been causing him trouble previously.
The previous shadow, although not clear. He is sure that the fish is at least 1.5 meters long, probably even bigger.
If this is really a carnivore fish then according to its size, hunting that often is not surprising.
However, such a large carnivore fish appeared in his own reservoir, and it’s only now that he discovers it. This can only be explained by his dereliction of duty.
“I’m really getting older.” Wu Hai lamented.
Fang Yun was listening to these people conversation. After hearing what these people were talking about, he finally relaxed.
These people misunderstood him as a big fish.
“Holy crap! that was really close.” Fang Yun let out a sigh of relief.
Hearing those people bragging about catching him, some even began gambling on who is going to catch him first, he felt very amused. If they really managed to catch him, then they probably wouldn’t be able to continue smiling.
After confirming that these people did not see his true appearance, Fang Yun completely relaxed, continuing to happily swim around the reservoir.
As the sky was constantly darkening, these people completely disappeared.
After Wu Hai picked up all the rubbish and trash from the shore, he took a final glance at the reservoir before returning home.
It’s almost midnight.
At this time, a villager passed by next to the reservoir.
Suddenly hearing a splashing sound, the villager subconsciously looked at the reservoir.
However, he only saw some ripples on the water surface and nothing else.
Finding nothing, the villager turned around and left.
Not long after he left, the sound of water splashes continued resounding in the reservoir until it’s almost dawn.
Deep underwater, Fang Yun didn’t rest as usual. Instead, he started wildly hunting in the reservoir.
His bio-energy points were rapidly growing.
In the next few days, more and more people were coming to Wu Hai reservoir to fish, all with the same goal in mind, that is catching the rumored big fish.
Originally Wu Hai was also preparing to catch the thieving big fish, but he stopped his actions after seeing the increasing number of tourists.
This big fish seems to be a free advertisement for his reservoir, becoming the goal for many fishing enthusiasts and self-proclaimed fishing experts to catch.
If this fish wasn’t in his reservoir, he wouldn’t get as much visitors as he gets now.
So in the end, Wu Hai decided to let this fish go.
But he is also very curious, what is the type of this big fish that bought fame to his reservoir?
These people who came to catch the “big fish” did not affect Fang Yun in the slightest. He continued to eat and sleep as usual. Sometimes, he will prank some people on the boat to fulfill his bad taste.
Originally, he still had some guilt, after all, he was eating the fruits of this old man labor.
However, after seeing more and more people in the reservoir, his guilt gradually dissipated.
He knew that many of those fishing enthusiasts came for him.
The money that the old man earned for all these tourists and fishing enthusiasts is probably enough to cover the loss he caused to him.
Fang Yun’s bio-energy was steadily accumulating, until the fifth day. He finally accumulated enough bio-energy to evolve.
He reached the required amount this morning.
But because there were a lot of people on the shore, he waited until the middle of the night before crawling to the edge of the forest, then undergoing his evolution.
After this evolution, his level has been successfully upgraded to 11!.
