Chapter 694: The Underground Palace

Han Fei simply sat on the ground and took out his giant pot.

Seeing that, Tang Ge and Ye Xiangxiang sat in the snow too.

Ye Xiangxiang even said, “There’s no need to rush.
We haven’t recovered from our exhaustion yet.”

Tang Ge grinned and said, “The sea demons that came in have mostly been destroyed.
There’s time to take a break.
Since we haven’t found the treasure after such a long time, it won’t be easy to find it anytime soon.”

Of the four of them, Su Hongye was the only one who was puzzled.
“What are you doing?”

In the next moment, Han Fei took out a Gold Spear Fish.
Then he poured oil and different seasonings into the pot.

Su Hongye would be stupid if she still didn’t know what Han Fei was doing.
She said, “We’re in the middle of a treasure trove, and you’re in the mood for food?”

Tang Ge said casually, “There’s no need to rush.
We’ve all been tired and we need replenishment.”

Ye Xiangxiang nodded quickly.
“It won’t be easy to locate the treasures.
Let’s wait a moment.
Meng Guiyi and the others could be here any moment.
We may have to fight great battles later.”

Han Fei smiled casually, “It’s time to show you how it’s done!”

Gold Spear Fish were very rare here.
They were not exotic creatures, but they couldn’t be readily fished from the seashore.

Han Fei had bought this Gold Spear Fish from the market.

Blades were flying among Han Fei’s fingers, but none was a kitchen knife.
He put crab and lobster meat in the pot, which smelled tempting.
Then, Han Fei took out fresh lobster and crab meat, covered them in oil, and put dough balls into the pot.
When the dough was hardened, Han Fei hurriedly picked them up and enveloped the fried ingredients in it.
He then squeezed strawberry sauce on the food…

After that, Han Fei waved his hand and said, “Have a taste of the Invincible Gold Spear Fish Roll…”

Tang Ge and Ye Xiangxiang accepted the food and bit it without hesitation.

Ye Xiangxiang enjoyed it so much that she was stomping nonstop.
“Wow! How did you cook this? Why is it so delicious?”

Tang Ge didn’t say anything.
He had long known that Han Fei was a great cook and was ready to eat anything he made.

Su Hongye suspiciously took a bite of the food, then she gasped so hard that she couldn’t even think straight.

“W-What is this food?”

Han Fei snorted.
“Don’t bother with what it is.
Alright, finish the food and let’s be on our way.”

All of a sudden, Ye Xiangxiang asked in a stun, “Wait, why do I feel that something isn’t right?”

As she spoke, Ye Xiangxiang suddenly leaped out and remarked in surprise, “I’m twenty percent faster.

Han Fei’s lips curled, and he said with a smile, “Because I’ve used high-level ingredients.”

In fact, Han Fei saw other information in his heart.

Gold Spear Fish Roll

This is a food made of the essence of many ingredients.
It tastes smooth and delicious and contains the original feature of the food.



896 points

It can fill your stomach and temporarily increase your speed for two hours when eaten.

Han Fei had long known that the food he made gave advantages back in the level-three fishery.
However, the advantages were not always obvious.

Han Fei didn’t even know how Ye Xiangxiang discovered that she was faster.
By common sense, she couldn’t have noticed such a tiny difference without a battle.

All of them had food fast.
Han Fei had cooked mostly because he needed the increase and the replenishment of spiritual energy.

Having spiritual fruits and Candle Dragon Blood all the time wouldn’t do.
He had almost been killed in the first treasure trove he explored on the Scattered Stars Island.

Also, none of his companions were in their best shape, and they needed a full recovery.

Ye Xiangxiang climbed to the top of the tree and then jumped off.
“There’s nothing up here except some broken pieces of ice.
What happened?”

Han Fei blatantly lied.
“We only fought Xu Mo because we thought something was up there.
We didn’t notice anything else either.”

Tang Ge feigned ignorance too.
“It puzzles me why there is such a big tree here.
What’s it for?”

Su Hongye heaved a sigh.
“Too bad we can’t spread out our senses in this treasure trove, or we wouldn’t have to be so passive…”

Han Fei shook his head.
On our way here, I found a lot of Half-Mermaid souls at the bottom of the sea.
That can’t be a coincidence.
There’s bound to be secrets we haven’t unearthed yet.”

Immediately, everybody looked at the tree at the same time.

Ye Xiangxiang asked, “Are you implying that it’s in the tree?”

Han Fei nodded.
“First, we need to think why there are so many Half-Mermaid souls and what they are trying to protect.
Since this island is so tiny and there’s nothing on it except the tree, our target can only be inside the tree or beneath it.”

Tang Ge nodded.
“You’re right.
I’ll see if I can cut the tree apart.”

Tang Ge was quite a doer.
He simply began chopping the tree.

Han Fei had experience in logging.
He was the one who chopped down the Big Red Trunk.

At this moment, he thought of something and summoned the Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp with a snap of his fingers.

Han Fei then kicked it.
“Dig down from the bottom of the tree.”

Ye Xiangxiang exclaimed, “Huh? Your Mantis Shrimp looks quite unique!”

“I know that it is much more awesome than the rest of its kind.”

Ye Xiangxiang scoffed.
“…I was saying that it seems quite strong.”

Su Hongye added, “I wonder what’s going on outside.
Have Zhao Jiayi and the others come in?”

Han Fei smiled casually.
“Don’t worry.
That guy is very smart.
I don’t think anything would happen to him.
Besides, we have the advantage in numbers.”

Clang! Clang! Clang!

Tang Ge’s strikes cut more than one meter into the trunk, and there was nothing but stones inside.

Han Fei remarked, “They’re spiritual stones… But the spiritual energy in them are all gone.”

Ye Xiangxiang was surprised.
“Why are there so many spiritual stones inside the trunk? What a shame.
Why are they all empty?”

“What you should be asking is why so many spiritual stones have been drained.
By logic, they could’ve been preserved for a long time if nobody used them, right?”

Tang Ge suggested, “I’ll just cut deeper.”

Han Fei shook his head.
“That’s unnecessary.”

Su Hongye asked in confusion, “Why are you so certain?”

Han Fei chuckled.
“Why don’t you take a guess?”

Naturally, Han Fei didn’t confess that he had gained experience from digging the Big Red Trunk.

As he expected, about half an hour later, the Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp crawled out of the soil and rolled on the ground.


The Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp informed Han Fei that there was a flower down below, but it failed to hold itself back and swallowed the flower.

Han Fei burst into rage and kicked it hard.
“What a dumb shrimp.
Did I allow you to eat it?”

Ye Xiangxiang asked curiously, “What happened?”

Everyone: “???”

Han Fei turned his head.
There seems to be a flower down below, but it’s already been eaten by my stupid beast.”


Ye Xiangxiang asked in surprise, “Your contractual spiritual beast can eat things without your permission?”

Han Fei said unhurriedly, “Isn’t that normal? The contractual spiritual beasts are living creatures too.
Of course they’ll eat things they can’t refuse!”

That being said, Han Fei was rather curious too, as the Nine-Tailed Mantis Shrimp wasn’t a glutton and the thing that it swallowed couldn’t have been ordinary.

Han Fei thought for a moment.
“Let’s go down.
Something is down there.”

They slid down through the tunnel, and Ye Xiangxiang remarked in amazement, “It’s really great to have a contractual spiritual beast that can dig.”

Han Fei was lost for words.
“Go capture one for yourself…”

Ye Xiangxiang retorted, “That’s not a fair deal.
Such contractual spiritual beasts aren’t suitable for hunters.”

Su Hongye felt that she was like an outsider.
She couldn’t help but ask, “Do you know each other well?”

Ye Xiangxiang quickly said, “Not really!”

At this moment, Tang Ge interrupted them and said, “There’s an array here.”

Han Fei glanced at it.
“Huh? Isn’t it a Spirit Gathering Array?”

After he examined it carefully, he created a Spirit Gathering Array of his own, but it looked very different from the one before his eyes.

Immediately, Han Fei shook his head.
“No, it’s not just a Spirit Gathering Array, but a combination of multiple arrays.”

After Han Fei stepped on the array, he was entirely absorbed into it.

When he opened his eyes again, he found that he was in the status of zero gravity.
He looked around, only to find that he was floating in midair.

This was an enormous underground space, with stone tablets floating above and rows of warrior statues on the ground.
In the far front, there seemed to be an altar.

Above the altar, the illusion of a woman more than thirty meters tall was floating with an ice scepter in her hand.

Shua… Shua… Shua…

In the next second, Tang Ge, Ye Xiangxiang and Su Hongye showed up too.

Su Hongye asked in surprise, “What is this place?”

Tang Ge was surprised too.
“So many soldiers? Are they real or sculpted?”

Ye Xiangxiang exclaimed, “Is this how it feels to fly? I’m flying! Do we need to go there with fishing hooks?”

They could barely keep themselves balanced while floating.

Han Fei was observing the army down below and glimpsing at the floating illusion of the woman now and then.

“Is she the master of the Snow God’s Temple?”
