God of Fishing - Chapter 645
Chapter 645: Colluded with A Sea Monster?
The slovenly uncle called Zhang Teng was a Hidden Fisher and was originally a six-star killer.
Because he was fighting alone on the ocean for a long time, over time, he gradually started doing business with sea monsters.
In Han Fei’s view, this was simply ridiculous. Your job was to kill sea monsters but they still traded with you?
However, they did. And it was found out by the management of the Scattered Stars Island.
So he was immediately thrown into the Scattered Stars Prison and was locked up here ever since.
There was no one else here, so the two of them just chatted.
Han Fei wanted to get some information about the Scattered Stars Island from Zhang Teng’s mouth. After all, a strong Hidden Fisher must know more than him.
They chatted and chatted…
The two actually started to play cards.
Zhang Teng sighed, “These are interesting!”
Han Fei grinned and said, “Of course, I invented it.”
Han Fei chuckled. “Yes… But I don’t want to play anymore… We’ve been playing cards for so long, but why didn’t anyone show up?”
Zhang Teng laughed. “No one will come.”
Han Fei was speechless. “Why? Don’t they need to interrogate me?”
“You colluded with a sea monster. Why do they need to interrogate you?”
Han Fei was helpless. “Who the hell colluded with sea monsters? I killed two red monsters!”
Zhang Teng suddenly asked, “When you were carried in, you were full of demonic breath. At that moment, I thought you were a sea monster… Did you transform from a sea monster?”
Han Fei was surprised. “How could it be? Do I look like a sea monster? Oh… You mean I’m locked up here because they thought I was a sea monster?”
Zhang Teng chuckled and said, “Yes! When you were carried in, even I thought that you were a sea monster and that even if you were not, you must be related to sea monsters. However, after such a long time, the demonic breath in you seemed to dissipate, which seems to be absorbed by your body… If I were them, I would have caught you too.”
Han Fei narrowed his eyes, “Huh? Did I absorb the demonic breath? Why didn’t I know? Is it because of my healing technique?”
Han Fei thought to himself, The demonic breath was absorbed by me indeed, which seemed to do me great good.
When the mermaid made its final blow, it almost stuffed all its remaining demonic energy into his body.
Originally, it was intended to destroy the vitality in his body and let him die with it.
However, it didn’t know that Han Fei had such a strong physique, nor did it expect that Han Fei had a seed in his body that could absorb demonic breath.
For the first time, Han Fei looked at this seed squarely.
He remembered Luo Xiaobai also got a seed before.
Old Bai once mentioned that he would have to find his own way, which reminded Han Fei of the road he walked out unconsciously in Ren Tianfei’s cave, thinking that the seed was the road.
Now, Han Fei was not sure. Why could this thing absorb demonic breath?
Zhang Teng smacked his mouth and waved his hand. “Healing techniques can heal wounds but can’t get rid of demonic breath. Although demonic breath will escape, there will always be residuals, and it won’t escape so quickly…”
As he said this, Zhang Teng squinted at Han Fei. “So, you still have something to do with sea monsters, right?”
Han Fei said angrily, “Bullsh*t, I have an innocent background. I killed Red Demons and the second son of the Cao Family in the Thousand Star City can testify for me. I used the blow sealed in an ancient jade piece to kill the Red Demons. Who the f*ck has anything to do with sea monsters?”
Zhang Teng grinned. “Not necessarily! Maybe someone is a sea monster, but he doesn’t know it. But you really don’t look like a sea monster.”
Han Fei looked sideways at him. “What do you mean?”
Zhang Teng stretched lazily. “You look too human.”
Han Fei: “…”
Han Fei was helpless. “Are you scolding me? I was originally a person. What do you mean by I ‘look’ human?”
Zhang Teng laughed. “If you are a sea monster, then you must be very high-leveled. You’ll need a level-7 demonic heritage to perfectly transform into a human… Well, no, perhaps even higher.”
Han Fei was about to say, I don’t have a level-7 spiritual heritage yet, and how can I have a level-7 demonic heritage?
But then he suddenly paused and felt a chill down his spine.
As a peak-level Dangling Fisher who came to Scattered Stars Island for the first time, how could he know what demonic heritage was? Why was he not surprised at all when he heard about demonic heritage?
Han Fei didn’t even dare to move his eyeballs. He looked a little dazed but in his heart, he knew instantly… This guy was definitely not a prisoner who had been imprisoned for three years!
This Zhang Teng was definitely a fake prisoner. He seemed to be friendly to him just because he wanted to trick the truth from his mouth when he was not paying attention.
If he answered this question in the wrong way, he would be immediately convicted of colluding with sea monsters.
Han Fei gave a confused look. “Huh? Wait a minute… What is a demonic heritage?”
Zhang Teng’s eyes blinked faintly, and he said calmly, “Oh! Sea monsters are actually a race similar to human beings. But we live on the Floating Islands, while they live in the sea. We are born enemies. Their demonic heritage is equivalent to our spiritual heritage.”
Han Fei looked astonished. “You mean, the sea monsters, like us, cultivate with spiritual heritages?”
Zhang Teng shrugged. “We call it demonic heritage. However, someone said he once saw the king of sea monsters, who looked almost the same as humans.”
Han Fei pretended to be ignorant. “Really?”
Zhang Teng smacked his tongue. “It’s similar to a human! Both in speech and behavior and the cultivation methods.”
Han Fei couldn’t help but ask, “Then can it still be called a sea monster? Shouldn’t sea monsters be full of demonic breath?”
Zhang Teng lazily said, “Alas! Maybe their demonic heritage is just like our high-quality spiritual heritage. Do you know how it feels having a level-9 spiritual heritage?”
Han Fei said weakly, “You mean, if their demonic heritage is high enough, they won’t have any demonic breath in them?”
Zhang Teng swung his dirty hair. “It’s possible. I’m afraid it will only be exposed under some special circumstances. For example, when they’re seriously injured…”
While talking, Zhang Teng looked at Han Fei with a smile.
Han Fei pointed to himself and sneered. “Me? What the f*ck are you talking about? If what you guess is true, that kind of a figure must be very precious for sea monsters! How would sea monsters let it risk its life to come to the human world?”
Zhang Teng smiled. “That’s true. So I said you didn’t look like a sea monster.”
With that said, Zhang Teng took out a pot of wine and took himself two sips.
Han Fei was surprised. “Where did you get the wine?”
Zhang Teng blinked at Han Fei and said. “Just a small trick. I secretly hid a Sea Swallowing Seashell. But it has been three years, and the wine in it is almost finished. Want a sip?”
Han Fei disdainfully said, “Let me smell it.”
“Heh! Are you afraid that I will put poison in the wine?”
Han Fei curled his lips. “I’m afraid the quality of your wine is too poor.”
Zhang Teng was surprised. “Come on, this is treasure here! I’d rather save it for myself. Besides, do you think you still have a chance to get out?”
Han Fei snorted. “I’m definitely able to get out. I’m not a sea monster. If they keep locking me up here, believe it or not, my teacher will come and smash this Scattered Stars Prison!”
“Oh? Your teacher is so strong?”
Han Fei said proudly, “Of course! He is a Hidden Fisher! It’ll simply be a breeze for him to kill them all.”
Zhang Teng felt silent. What a braggart! What makes you think Hidden Fishers are capable of that?
Han Fei was more certain that this man was not a prisoner. If the Scattered Stars Prison was really as powerful as he described, how could they allow him to keep a Sea Swallowing Seashell?
Han Fei asked, “Hey, how do you think sea monsters cultivate? Why do the Inferior Man-Fish and Red Demons look different?”
Zhang Teng cast a surprised look at him. “Huh? You don’t know why?”
Han Fei was helpless. “I am not a sea monster. How would I know?”
Zhang Teng snorted. “Well, sea monsters are actually not much different from humans. In fact, there are different levels of sea monsters. Some creatures become monsters after producing wisdom. We call this realm Spirit Awakening…”
“The lowest-level sea monsters have three realms: Spirit Awakening, Worldliness Transcending, and Spirit Guarding. In theory, they respectively correspond to the three realms of fisher, fishing master, and great fishing master.”
Han Fei was amused. “Can they be called sea monsters?”
“Listen to me. After the Spirit Guarding stage, a sea monster can awaken and thus formally cultivate. In theory, it’s at the same level as a Dangling Fisher then. Of course, sea monsters may awaken at any stage, so it’s just a theoretical correspondence.”
Han Fei prodded, “And then?”
“And then? After awakening, it’ll enter the Demonization stage, at which it will continue to grow and evolve. Only in this way it can truly become a sea monster… Therefore, at the Demonization stage, it is equivalent to a Hanging Fisher… And above this level, it will become a true sea monster and be as intelligent as humans. If it continues to pursue its cultivation, it’ll become a Sea Spirit, which is the highest level for sea monsters.”
Han Fei’s eyes flickered.
Spirit Awakening, Worldliness Transcending, Spirit Guarding, Awakening, Demonization, Sea Monster, and Sea Spirit…
So sea monsters actually followed such a cultivation route. Under normal circumstances, a sea spirit was already equivalent to a Law Enforcer.
But he was still a bit confused. Yang Ruoyun was only at the Demonization stage back then, wasn’t she? But why was she as intelligent as human beings?
