Hence, Black Serpent led the Sea Serpent Clan and rushed in the direction of Lei Xiu!
Along the way, Black Serpent and the Sea Serpent Clan discovered that they were not the only ones rushing towards the source of the fragrance. A few other groups of underwater creatures were also swimming at high speed.
“Big Brother! Judging from this, it must be a treasure! Otherwise, why would so many underwater creatures suddenly make their way there!” Black Serpent shouted in joy.
“Hahahaha, good! Now it seems that it’s indeed true! When I go back, I’ll explain your contributions to the Great Elder!” the Serpent called Big Brother said.
“Thank you, Big Brother!” Black Serpent said sincerely.
Then, he focused on leading the way.
“Yo! Isn’t this the Sea Serpent Clan’s Mighty Serpent! Where are you going in such a hurry?”
Just as Black Serpent was focused on leading the way, a group of squid-like creatures blocked the path of the serpents. One of the squid-like creatures laughed and spoke.
The creature who spoke was a member of the Snitch Clan, which was also one of the four overlord clans of this sea region like the Sea Serpent Clan! The creatures of the Snitch Clan were extremely tenacious, and they were capable of releasing a type of dense mist that snitched one’s vision from them. Not only that, it was poisonous as well. This was the origin of their name ‘Snitch’.
However, if the mist could not be absorbed in a limited amount of time after it was spewed out, the creature who released it would die. Therefore, the mist would only be released when they were fighting for their lives.
“Dark Mount! Why are you here? Don’t stop me!” Mighty Serpent stopped moving and said coldly.
‘Why is Dark Mount here? Damn it! ‘Mighty Serpent thought.
Mighty Serpent was extremely anxious because this creature’s strength was on par with him, and he was his sworn enemy. Moreover, if he really wanted to fight with his life on the line, then he would be fearful.
Besides, they belonged to one of the four overlord tribes in the sea. When Dark Mount blocked his path, Mighty Serpent had no choice but to suppress his anger.
“Look! Isn’t that the Mighty Serpent of the Sea Serpent Clan and Dark Mount of the Snitch Clan? They are arch-enemies, and now they are actually together!” At this moment, there was a group of various undersea creatures watching from the bottom of the sea not far from here. One of them clearly recognized Mighty Serpent and Dark Mount on the field and said loudly.
“What?! You’re saying that it’s Dark Mount and Mighty Serpent? They’re all members of one of the four great clans of the sea region! And they’re the best of each species! Why would they come to a remote place like ours?” Another creature that looked like a crab replied.
“Why would I lie to you? I’ve seen Dark Mount and Mighty Serpent with my own eyes before. I remember their faces clearly. It’s them! They even fought once before. It’s said that they fought for half a day, but we don’t know who won or lost,” the creature who spoke before continued.
“It’s true! I’ve seen them too! It’s really them! I didn’t expect them to come here!” A few other creatures said.
“Do you guys think their arrival has something to do with the strange fragrance?” A voice rang out among the creatures.
“That’s possible! Otherwise, there’s no reason for them to come to such a remote place like ours. I didn’t expect that the fragrance would attract even Dark Mount and Mighty Serpent.,” yet another voice rang out.
“Do you think they will fight when they meet each other?” At that moment, a voice rang out, drawing everyone’s thoughts. They also wanted to know if Dark Mount and Mighty Serpent would fight.
Hence, they fell silent and stared at the two creatures.
These words were naturally not heard by either Dark Mount and Mighty Serpent. They were too far away, and even if they heard it, they would not take it seriously, because in their eyes, these other creatures were of no importance to them.
“Why? Why can’t I be here? Aren’t you here as well?” Dark Mount acted as if he did not hear anything and did not have any intention to make way.
As a matter of fact, when Dark Mount was touring the area, he saw that the sea serpents had also took notice of the strange fragrance. However, the fragrance disappeared after a while. At that time, he guessed that there must be some treasure. Then, he saw one of the serpents not far away with an excited look on its face, about to head back in the direction of its habitat..
He could not ask the sea snake directly, so he had been keeping an eye on Mighty Serpent’s movements. From the moment that Mighty Serpent left the tribe, Dark Mount had been secretly following him.
“I said get out of the way! Didn’t you hear me?” Mighty Serpent coldly repeated, the threat in his eyes undisguised.
“What if I say no?” Dark Mount smiled frivolously.
“Dark Mount! Are you looking for death?” Mighty Serpent said angrily.
“Hmph! Do you think you can scare me? Others might be afraid of you, but I’m not!” Dark Mount did not want to be outdone. He closed in on Mighty Serpent and put away his smile as he said coldly.
“You never get up early without benefits. I’m guessing that you’re in such a hurry to go there because something is attracting you.” After looking at each other for a while, Dark Mount retracted his gaze and said with a smile. On the surface, he was looking around, but in reality, he was staring into Mighty Serpent’s eyes.
“Hmph! There are some quest targets from the internal sects up ahead.” Hearing Dark Mount’s guess, Mighty Serpent’s heart skipped a beat. Luckily, he reacted quickly and said immediately.
“Is that so…” Although Mighty Serpent’s panic was well hidden, Dark Mount still noticed it.
“Alright, move aside quickly! I still have things to do!” Mighty Serpent said indifferently. Obviously, he knew that he couldn’t be in such a hurry, otherwise, he would be seen through.
“Alright! Move aside and let the sea snakes go over!” Dark Mount shouted loudly before staring at Mighty Serpent.
Upon receiving the order, the Snitch Clan opened up a path, allowing Mighty Serpent and the other serpents to swim over.
‘Is he really that kind-hearted? Did he guess something? Forget it… The treasure is more important now!’ Mighty Serpent felt himself go numb from being glared at by Dark Mount. He thought to himself and shook his head before swimming forward quickly.
Dark Mount watched Mighty Serpent and the other serpents grew farther and farther away until they disappeared from his sight…
“Young Master! Let’s go! I think Mighty Serpent wouldn’t dare to lie to you. The Clan Head is still waiting for us to go back.” The Snitch beside him said softly.
Dark Mount pondered for a moment before he said firmly, “No! He might have hidden it very well, but I can clearly sense that he’s hiding something from me!”
“Then what should we do?” the Snitch continued.
“Follow me. I want to see what important things he’s hiding from me!” Dark Mount said while staring at the spot where the might of the serpent disappeared.
“Then what about the Clan Head—” said the Snitch carefully, afraid he might upset his young lord.
“When the time comes, I will explain to him. Just follow me!” Dark Mount ordered.
“Yes, Young Master!” They had no choice. Dark Mount was the Young Master after all. They could only listen to his orders.
Therefore, Dark Mount led the Snitches towards the direction where Mighty Serpent and the others disappeared. Because of the special structure of their bodies, their speed was also faster than the sea serpents. It would not take long for them to catch up.
After Dark Mount and the rest of the Snitches left, the undersea creatures nearby swam over and came to the place where the two overload species had been earlier.
“It’s such a pity that the two of them didn’t fight!” The creature who spoke at the start said regretfully.
“Yeah, yeah! It’s such a pity! We didn’t get to see a big battle!” Many other creatures agreed.
Just as everyone was about to leave, one of them said, “No! I think they will definitely fight. Did you notice that Dark Mount was swimming in the same direction as Mighty Serpent?”
“That makes sense! I plan to follow and take a look. It would be a pity if I can’t witness such a huge battle with my own eyes,” another creature said.
“If that’s the case, let’s go!” Once he finished speaking, he also headed in the direction where Dark Mount disappeared.
The rest of the creatures followed suit. It was obvious that they really wanted to see the battle between Might Serpent and Dark Mount.
Seeing so many creatures heading in one direction, other underwater creatures joined the group out of curiosity.
Thus, a huge group of undersea creatures split into several waves and rapidly approached the location of Lei Xiu!
