Xiao Liang had not appeared for over 10 days. As soon as he appeared, he invited everyone to take a look at the sea. Everyone was curious. They followed Xiao Liang to the small platform on the submarine and saw many people in the submarine piloting small boats that floated on the surface of the water. They drove the small boats to the tail of the submarine and pulled a few huge nets out of the sea. There were all sorts of fish in these nets. These nets were magical items. No matter how ferocious the fish were, they were all caught.
The fishermen dragged the fish out of the sea and dragged themselves back to the submarine after killing them. They entered through an underwater entrance and expelled the water.
Wei Huo asked Xiao Liang, “Did you ask us to come to see how they catch fish?”
Xiao Liang shook his head. “What’s so impressive about catching ordinary fish? Let me extend invitations to all of you to see how one can catch a sea unicorn!”
As soon as Xiao Liang said that, an unknown creature floated up from the bottom of the sea. Only a portion of the unknown creature stayed above the water surface. After it floated up, it spat out a water jet hundreds of meters tall. At the same time, an extremely sharp horn extended from the sea.
The creature had only revealed its back, but Wei Huo could already see its information.
“Narwhal, Epic-ranked, male.”
Xiao Liang explained, “I call this creature the sea unicorn. It is so huge that it is larger than my ship. It’s also very fierce and aggressive. The moment we discovered it, it attacked us. However, the submarine’s magic array repelled it. It was unwilling to give up, so it stayed vigilant around us. It should continue attacking, but I don’t plan on giving it a chance.”
Wei Huo asked, “Are you going to do this yourself?”
Xiao Liang smiled. “It’s just an Epic-ranked creature. Why would I attack it personally? Please watch.”
Xiao Liang kept them in suspense. At that moment, a few pitch-black boats floated up. After they floated up, they immediately charged toward the Epic-ranked Narwhal.
Wei Huo’s golden eyes saw through everything. The boat was completely sealed, and it seemed like it had the ability to move underwater. The propeller of the boat kept spinning, and the momentum carried the boat forward. Soon, it cornered the Epic-ranked Narwhal.
Wei Huo also saw that the people controlling the small boats were only Rare-ranked. However, the small boats were made of materials that could isolate mental strength. That was why the imposing aura of the Narwhal could not do anything to them.
After the small boats surrounded the Narwhal, they immediately launched an attack. They seemed to be very familiar with this. They did not panic at all when they surrounded the single-Narwhal.
The small boats quickly cornered it and shot out harpoons. Those harpoons were not ordinary, as they were engraved with runes. Once they were shot out, they were augmented by the power of the runes. Their destructive power was extremely huge, so they pierced the skin of the Narwhal.
The Single-Narwhal roared in pain and sank into the water. As it sank, countless small boats were brought down by it. However, at that moment, endless lightning sparks bloomed on the countless small boats. The electricity flowed through the harpoon chains and entered the Single-Narwhal’s body.
A moment later, a violent explosion sound came from the Narwhal’s body. Countless electric currents had penetrated its body and caused tremendous damage.
However, that was not enough to kill the Narwhal. The Narwhal was furious. It suddenly turned around and charged toward the submarine. It aimed its horn at Xiao Liang’s submarine as if it wanted to smash it.
At that moment, several magic arrays appeared on the submarine. The magic arrays were flowing with all sorts of energy. The moment the Narwhal rushed over, the magic arrays immediately launched the most terrifying attack. This attack broke the Narwhal’s horn.
Xiao Liang pursed his lips and said, “It’s a pity that the sea unicorn’s horn broke. However, it doesn’t matter. A sea unicorn like this can sustain people for a long time.”
The submarine was still moving forward. The Narwhal no longer posed any danger. A few small boats had surrounded it and started the final battle. Before Xiao Liang could get everyone to return to the submarine, the submarine moved toward a small island.
Xiao Liang said, “Actually, the main reason I invited you here is to let you take a look at this island.”
The submarine, which was too big, stopped hundreds of meters away from the island. At that moment, Xiao Liang took a step and crossed the sea. Moments later, he arrived on the island. Wei Huo took a step and arrived on the island as well. The other Legendary creatures flew over and landed on the island.
When they arrived, Wei Huo asked, “What’s so special about this island? Why did you invite us here?”
Xiao Liang led everyone forward and said, “Come with me. There’s a delicacy on this island that none of you could expect.”
Xiao Liang kept leading everyone forward. Soon, they arrived in front of a forest. The trees there looked like coconut trees, but the fruits were not coconuts.
Wei Huo was a little surprised when he saw the fruit trees, as they looked familiar.
Xiao Liang said, “I call these fruit trees Instant Noodle Fruit Trees. The fruits of these trees are too similar to instant noodles. You guys could never imagine the taste!”
Everyone was confused. What were instant noodles?
Xiao Liang smiled and did not say anything. Wei Huo did not explain much either. This was food that only people from their era knew. People from this era could no longer enjoy such delicacies.
Wei Huo looked at the Instant Noodle Fruit Trees. These trees were similar to coconut trees, and there were fist-sized fruits on them. However, a few of the fruits had cracked because they were ripe. Noodle-like fruit flesh fell from the cracked fruits. Their appearance and color were exactly the same as those of instant noodles.
Xiao Liang personally plucked some fruits and built a fire on the ground. He then took an iron pot and poured water in it.
Lu Qiqi, who was very good at cooking, asked in confusion, “Do you need to cook this fruit?”
Xiao Liang nodded. “Yes, you can also boil it in hot water. It will be edible in three minutes, but it will be better if it’s cooked thoroughly.”
Lu Qiqi immediately understood and said, “I see. No wonder it’s called Instant Noodle Fruit. It’s really convenient.”
Wei Huo was speechless.
It was indeed convenient. In the past, instant noodles had to be manufactured. Now, there was no need to manufacture them anymore. One could just pluck them from a tree.
Xiao Liang cut open a fruit and the instant noodles inside fell into the iron pot. Then, Xiao Liang sprinkled them with a lot of spices. Soon, a fragrance entered everyone’s noses.
Wei Huo plucked a few Instant Noodle Fruits and stored them in his inventory. He had started collecting plant seeds that he had never seen before.
