The weird instant noodles were cooked very quickly. Lu Qiqi and the others were surprised. They had never seen such food before. This kind of food was too convenient. If it could be grown widely, wouldn’t it solve many people’s sustenance problems?
Xiao Liang filled a bowl of instant noodles for each of them. Wei Huo tasted it and suddenly recalled the taste of instant noodles before the time halt. He even suspected that the island had once been an instant noodle factory. However, various changes had occurred later, and the fruit trees had grown instant noodles.
The noodles also emitted a fragrance. This fragrance was something that had never been part of instant noodles before. Compared to the past instant noodles, these were chewier.
Wei Huo and Xiao Liang looked like they were enjoying the aftertaste. The others were just enjoying the food, while Lu Qiqi was looking at Wei Huo strangely.
Xiao Liang said, “It would not be an exaggeration to say that if these noodles were put up for auction, many old people would fight over them. A long time ago, I met someone selling spicy gluten snacks in the Northern Continent. I bought all his spicy gluten snacks immediately. These are all foods with a historical meaning behind them. Once they are eaten, they’ll be gone.”
Upon hearing Xiao Liang’s words, Wei Huo thought of the guy who had sold spicy gluten snacks in the Soaring Cloud City. It seemed like as long as one persevered, people who could appreciate their stuff would always come.
Everyone was eating noodles when Xiao Liang said, “This is a small island I found when I returned from Atlantis. I installed a beacon on the island so that I could return here.”
Wei Huo looked at him. “Did you find Atlantis? Have you been there?”
Xiao Liang shook his head. “No, I only took a quick glance and returned. The situation there is very special. It must be difficult to enter. That’s why I was looking for a divine weapon like the Sea God’s Trident. I’ve brought the divine weapon this time. I can now try to explore Atlantis.”
The others were confused. They did not know what the two of them were talking about. Lu Qiqi asked Wei Huo, “Where is Atlantis?”
Wei Huo explained, “Atlantis was a continent that sank to the bottom of the sea 10,000 years ago. Legend has it that the people of Atlantis were God’s people, but no one knows what happened after that. This continent sank, and no one has found any traces of it. It’s said that the civilization in that continent is highly developed and the people there have mastered advanced science and technology and are even proficient in magic and divine spells. The people in Atlantis can fly freely and never age. It’s a legendary country.”
The golden armor suddenly said, “Are you talking about the Great Western Continent? I remember that during the era of the Yellow Emperor, the people of this place went to the Central Continent. The leader of the Central Continent even met them.”
Everyone looked at the golden armor. This guy’s background was mysterious. It seemed to be one of the old monsters who had survived from the ancient era, as it knew many secrets of the ancient era.
Xiao Liang said, “Atlantis is the Great Western Continent. It’s a very mysterious place. I’m not sure if the place I found last time was Atlantis. That’s why I have to explore it this time. I wonder if everyone is willing to travel with me?”
No one said no. At their level, where would they not dare go?
Xiao Liang said, “There must be a weapon comparable to a Mythical creature hidden there. Otherwise, that place wouldn’t have looked like that. Without a Mythical weapon to carve a path, it would be difficult for us to enter with our Legendary strength. Brother Wu Huo, if you don’t want to go, I’m begging you to lend me the trident. Let me take a risk in Atlantis. I’ll at least fulfill my wish.”
Wei Huo was speechless.
Even a Legendary creature could not get his name right?
The group returned to the submarine. By then, the Narwhal had been captured by the fishermen. As soon as they returned to the submarine, they had a feast made of whale meat. It was delicious.
However, the pitiful golden armor could only watch. It made up its mind to become a Mythical creature and create its own body.
Wei Huo’s participation made Xiao Liang very happy. He drank a few more glasses and told the golden armor, “Brother, although Legendary weapons have intelligence, you’re the only special Legendary weapon I’ve come across. My Backstab Dagger has been here for over 100 years, but I’ve never heard it speak.”
The golden armor said, “Not all Legendary equipment can communicate with humans, and not all Mythical weapons can take human form. The Legendary weapons in your hands have been Legendary from the moment they were created. They’re not like me. I grew up as the most ordinary armor. I don’t even know how long it has been. If I hadn’t accumulated enough time, the equipment would at most have given birth to a spirit but not to intelligence. Do you understand?”
Wei Huo said, “I see. I thought you had a soul attached to you after you died. I often heard that an old man would possess a ring, a broken sword, a stone, or even a tree that had been struck half to death by lightning. His goal would be to find the fated one that would help him grow. In the end, he would make the fated one help him rebuild his body.”
The golden armor was shocked. “Who told you this? Can this be done?”
Xiao Liang said with a strange expression, “I heard this often when I was young.”
The golden armor fell into deep thought and mumbled to itself, “Can this be done? Can this be done? Should I find a fated person with potential?”
The golden armor never talked about its secrets. Even if others asked, it would change the topic. That was why no one knew anything about its background.
The submarine that Wei Huo and the others were riding started moving again. They all kept moving west. This time, their destination was the sunken continent of Atlantis!
This underwater trip took a long time. After about three years, the submarine suddenly stopped. Xiao Liang came to inform them personally. “Atlantis is under our feet. We will set off when we are ready!”
In the past three years, they had viewed a lot of underwater scenery. It was a scenery that ordinary people would never get the chance to see in their lives. This kind of scenery was unforgettable. There were underwater forests, seashells, and all sorts of underwater creatures.
At the same time, they had learned how Xiao Liang made money. Many ships that had sunk in the sea were filled with golden and silver treasures. No one had been able to pick them up, so they had ended up in Xiao Liang’s hands. At the same time, there were many gold mines at the bottom of the sea. These gold mines did not even need to be mined. One could pick the gold up directly. This gold had also been taken by Xiao Liang.
