A ghost that was eaten by another ghost would completely disappear. It would never reincarnate and it would not even have the chance to turn back into a ghost.
Yun Qin’s goal was to feed on these types of ghosts to increase her lifespan as much as possible.
However, the further she walked, the wider the river became. There were fewer and fewer sections along the riverbank that Yun Qin could walk on. After walking for half an hour, Yun Qin looked at the muddy road in front of her and was dumbfounded.
She tried to probe the ground with her feet, but there was no place solid enough for her to place her weight on the muddy surface.
Yun Qin used her flashlight to shine on the road ahead. She was only a few dozen meters away from a rock formation in the corner that seemed like she could stand on.
“How do I get there?”
Yun Qin felt helpless. Did she have to paddle across on a boat?
At this moment, the black-furred hidden ghost said, “Swim.”
Was it asking her to swim over? Yun Qin was speechless.
However, at this moment, she had no other choice. It seemed that the only way was to swim over.
Yun Qin did not want to choose such a bad option. She knew how to swim, but…
Seeing that Yun Qin was unwilling and even wanted to turn back, the hidden ghost once again urged, “You swim!”
“You little brat, is it because you’re not human that you don’t understand human pain?”
Yun Qin scolded angrily. She would definitely get sick if she took a lap in such cold water. The low temperature in the cave didn’t help either.
However, the hidden ghost ignored Yun Qin’s criticism and jumped into the water, slowly floating over.
When the greedy ghost saw this, it also jumped out of Yun Qin’s arms and climbed forward along the rock wall as if it was in a race with the hidden ghost.
As for Yun Qin, she could only silent stare at the zombie worm family that turned into small stones.
After sighing heavily, Yun Qin quietly packed her things and stuffed them into her backpack.
Fortunately, she bought one of the most expensive hiking bags so it was made with waterproof materials. Even the flashlight worked in water.
Yun Qin warmed up, tidied up her clothes and hair, took a deep breath, and jumped into the dark river.
As soon as she entered the water, the bone-chilling water shook her entire body. Suddenly, an idea flashed in her mind. She summoned her evil energy to cover her body, and she was immediately relieved from the cold a bit.
However, the effect of her evil energy was limited, so Yun Qin still felt uncomfortable and exhausted at the moment.
Her feet could not touch the bottom so Yun Qin had to tread water to stay afloat while swimming forward.
Meanwhile, the hidden ghost and the greedy ghost already reached the other end. The greedy ghost was even chirping strangely as if it was cheering for her.
Yun Qin saw that there was a place to go ashore in front of her. She felt slightly relieved and swam with even more effort.
However, Yun Qin’s body temperature still dropped rapidly in such an environment. She felt a wave of dizziness and shortness of breath.
At this moment, she was only a few meters away from the shore, but Yun Qin was already under severe hypothermia.
When Hades gave her the task to absorb the evil energy of ghosts, he did not say that she had to suffer such physical pain.
No wonder Hades was willing to give her rewards and assistance. This job meant she had to go through dangerous and austere environments. Without some serious skills, she would not survive this task.
When a person was on the verge of shock, their thoughts would run wild. A moment of distraction and Yun Qin plunged into the water. The flashlight that she held in her mouth also fell into the water.
With a sudden jolt, Yun Qin flopped up again. She used the last of her strength and swam towards the shore. Just before Yun Qin lost her strength, she finally came ashore.
Yun Qin immediately felt that she couldn’t even move. She laid on the big rock to recover her strength.
The greedy ghost seemed worried about her but didn’t know what to do. It jumped onto Yun Qin’s chest and wanted to imitate a human and give her a Heimlich.
Ignoring the greedy ghost’s nonsense, Yun Qin had to lay on the ground for almost ten minutes before she regained enough strength to get up. Her body was drenched, and her hair was dripping with water. She felt as miserable as she looked.
Yun Qin suddenly felt that compared to the hidden ghost and greedy ghost, she was the one more like a ghost.
Having lost her flashlight, she could not see clearly. However, the flashlight that sunk earlier was still stubbornly glowing in the water. Yun Qin depended on the weak light at the bottom of the water and saw the hidden ghost silently walking forward.
Fortunately, she prepared a spare flashlight in her bag. Yun Qin was about to take it out of her bag when she suddenly saw that the flashlight at the bottom of the water was shining on something strange.
Yun Qin rubbed her eyes and looked again in disbelief. This time, she saw it clearly..
