Chapter 428 Old Tortoise, Giant Python!
“It’s so scary. Old Tortoise and the giant python are fighting!”
“Run away! Old Tortoise is about to die!”
“Sob sob sob, if Old Tortoise dies, what will happen to us!?”
“Let’s go help out Old Tortoise. We have to deliver more water over.”
The school of fish was chatting non-stop. Moreover, they were extremely anxious and short of breath. They were obviously nervous.
The bubbles coming from the water were the result of their chatter.
It was a popular saying that fish only had seven seconds of memory, which was incorrect. A fish’s memory was obviously not limited to seven seconds. For that, scientists had conducted research. Fish that were caught before had a significantly lower rate of getting caught again by bait. They would be more careful. In some cases, the fish would remember the owner after a long period of caring for it.
As for that saying, it was only a misunderstanding that came from some random writings. ‘Fish, according to legends, only has seven seconds of memory. Both past and current life were all in those seven seconds, impossible to add or subtract a second from it…’
It was a piece of beautiful writing. While it was memorable, it also caused the misunderstanding people had about fish.
If a fish only had seven seconds of memory, then without a doubt, that would be a fish with severe mental disability; probably with Alzheimer’s disease.
Ye Lingchen focused on collecting the information from their exchange.
‘Old Tortoise and giant python?’
Interactions between animals were extremely simple, therefore Ye Lingchen could easily capture the main points from their conversations. ‘Could the spiritual energy here be related to the so-called Old Tortoise and giant python?’
‘If it’s really caused by them, then those two are amazing. Could it be that they also know Qi Refinement?’
Within the whirlpool, fishes were still escaping from it. Furthermore, from their incessant conversations, Ye Lingchen learned more about Old Tortoise and the giant python.
The Old Tortoise was too big-sized and was most likely stuck in the bottom of the pool—it was similar to being stranded. Meanwhile, the giant python took advantage of that and tried to kill Old Tortoise while it was weakened.
It appears that the giant python had been lurking in the pool for many years, waiting for the Old Tortoise to exhaust its life energy and kill it. These fishes were naturally scared and hated the giant python.
Ye Lingchen had an odd expression on his face. Judging from the current situation, both Old Tortoise and the giant python were extraordinary. Both of them were able to fight with wits and strength. They were much more intelligent than the average animals.
‘Interesting. A place where spirit energy gathers can truly produce miracles.’
He looked at the heart of the pool as his eyes glistened with eagerness. He had the Water Spirit Constitution that was upgraded from his Swimming skill. Although he had yet to try it, it should be very powerful. He was confident of his ability to survive in water.
“OMG, we’re rich! So many fish!” Wei Daxun exclaimed excitedly.
Having said that, he was ready to rush over. However, he was pulled back by Huang Lei.
“You mustn’t go there!” Huang Lei’s voice was serious. “If I’m not mistaken, this pool is deep. Very deep!”
“That’s right. Judging by the color of the water at the heart of the pool and the whirlpool, it proves that this pool is not the same as your ordinary pools!” He Jia interjected. “Furthermore, look at the fish in the whirlpool. They all swam out from below. Don’t you think it’s weird that there’s so many fishes in one pool?”
Wei Daxun stopped moving forward. Taking another look, the whirlpool had seemingly transformed into the maw of a monster, getting ready to swallow someone whole.
“It does look abnormal. How can a whirlpool form in a pool like this?” Hu Yue’er pondered.
“Aiya, why are we thinking so much? We’re here for the fish, not to study the pool. It’s fine as long as we get some fish.” Zhao Liangying’s thoughts were simple. She was already joyfully approaching the poolside, standing on the edge of the pool barefooted.
Apart from the heart of the pool, the other areas had many fishes too. The fish in the pool were darting about everywhere.
‘That’s right. Why think so much? Let’s catch some fish!’
The others laughed, then rolled up their sleeves and got ready to get to work.
“Get away from the pool!”
However, right at that moment, Ye Lingchen suddenly bellowed. His voice carried a sense of worry and authority.
“God Ye, what’s wrong?” He Jia looked at Ye Lingchen, whose face looked extremely serious.
“Everyone, back off!” Ye Lingchen shouted, then stared at Zhao Liangying. “Baby Ying, get out of the water. Quick!”
“What’s going on?” Zhao Liangying was scared. That was the first time she had seen Ye Lingchen being that serious. Not understanding what had happened, she was stunned on the spot for a moment.
“Stop blanking out. Get out quickly!” Ye Lingchen’s face darkened. At the same time, he started to run toward Zhao Liangying!
It was because at that moment, the school of fish turned even more chaotic and Ye Lingchen heard that underwater, a python was coming upwards to hunt for food!
“What’s going on?” Zhao Liangying was baffled. When she glanced at the pool, her entire body froze, then followed by a scream.
Without them realizing, the fish in the pool had escaped to a corner. As for the part of the water that went empty, a black shadow was swimming around!
Zhao Liangying’s scream had attracted the snake’s attention. The shadowy figure snapped, splashing up waves of water and darting toward Zhao Liangying like a submarine!
In the next instant, a black colored anaconda burst out from the water. Its body casted a long shadow under the sunlight, stunning everyone at the scene.
The anaconda was about four meters long and had a thick body. Its mouth was wide open as its body slithered toward Zhao Liangying!
If Zhao Liangying were to be constricted by the anaconda, she would instantly be pulled underwater and suffocated, finally turning into the anaconda’s meal!
“F*ck! There are snakes here?!”
“Baby Ying, run away!”
Screams could be heard. Everyone’s faces were filled with terror.
Unfortunately, Zhao Liangying’s mind blanked out. She was scared witless and could only stare wide-eyed as the anaconda attacked her.[F*ck! F*ck! Baby Ying why are you still in a daze? Run!]
[Ahhh, Baby Ying please be safe! What kind of stupid place is that? Why does it have snakes!?]
[Such a big snake, and it’s in the water. Once constricted, death is unavoidable!]
[F*ck! Are the program crew all idiots? What are you doing there? Save her!]
In the next instant, the anaconda’s body had already wrapped itself around Zhao Liangying’s waist, dragging her into the water at high speed!
Zhao Liangying’s eyes were filled with dread. She had no time to scream for help as her entire body was dragged into the pool. By then, she could not even breathe, let alone speak…
