Somewhere in the Ninth Star Sea, Third Mo was running for his life . Behind him, a few cuttlefish were attacking him with their tentacles .
One of their tentacles tried to sneak attack him on the side, but he managed to dodge it before being captured in one of them .
“Let’s see how you escape this time!” The cuttlefish grabbed onto Third Mo, brandishing him in the water .
“Release!” Third Mo cried out as a long sword appeared, cutting the tentacle off .
That long sword was incomparably sharp, as it directly cut the tentacle off . Third Mo’s body shook as he escaped from the tentacle before grabbing on to the long sword .
“Arghhh-” The cuttlefish whose tentacle got cut off started thrashing in the water, other tentacles waving haphazardly about . It even hit some of the other cuttlefish nearby .
Third Mo continued to run up aimlessly along the shore . He would have more advantage if he managed to leave the waters . He was too vulnerable underwater .
“Stop fighting amongst yourselves . Quickly, chase after the human, don’t let him leave the water!” A cuttlefish cried out, causing all the others to stop fighting and continuing to chase after Third Mo .
Third Mo was slow enough underwater, and even more so now that he was injured . The cuttlefish caught up to him quickly .
They surrounded him, saying, “Brat, hand over that item, and we’ll give you a quick and easy death!”
“Since the item has fallen into my hands already, how could I hand it over to you?” Third Mo faced them with his sword in his hands, “You’ve already lost so many people, but you still dare to chase after me . You’re a bunch unafraid of death!”
A few cuttlefish really did shrink back when they thought of their fallen clansmen . When Third Mo had stolen the item from their clan, not only did he not fall within their clan, he had even killed a few cuttlefish and managed to escape alive .
He was even badly injured back then .
“Don’t let him scare you! He’s grievously injured and not a match for us!” A cuttlefish cried out .
“We should take him back quickly . This place isn’t too far from the violet water clan and the water dragon clan . It’ll be troublesome if we meet them . ” Another cuttlefish reminded them .
“Mm, if we work together, there’s no way we’ll fail!”
“That’s right! He’s at the end of his rope . Let’s attack together!”
Third Mo saw that they were not frightened by his threat, and released a wave to push them back before dashing up to shore . However, he had barely gone too metres before he was caught by a bad stench .
It was so smelly that he almost lost consciousness, but he also lost his strength and became weak . His movements because exponentially sluggish as a few cuttlefish surrounded him again . With their interlocked tentacles, they formed an inescapable net and surrounded him in the middle . Then, they spat out a kind of huge air bubble, stuffing him inside .
The moment Third Mo entered the bubble, a wave of smelly air assaulted him once again . It was even smellier than the one before him, and he almost vomited a few months worth of vomit .
He made himself stop breathing before he used all his strength to attack the bubble . However, no matter how he attacked it, the bubble would change shape but simply refused to pop .
The cuttlefish linked hands and surrounded him, laughing cockily .
“So what if you’ve killed a lot of our clansmen? Didn’t we still manage to capture you in the end? Ha ha ha, let’s go! To the punishment hall!”
“Since you refuse to hand the item over, we can only bring you back to torture you slowly . Who cares how powerful you used to be? Once we reach our clan, just wait to be cut up into tiny pieces . Ha ha ha . ”
Third Mo felt as if he was going to faint from the smelly air . The air was also poisonous, as he felt his thoughts become increasingly muddled .
An ice arrow was suddenly released as it popped the bubble . The bubble that he was completely unable to pop, was destroyed by that ice arrow .
The cuttlefish were stunned when they saw the ice arrow floating in the water .
“That’s the ice arrow of the young prince of the Violet Water Clan!”
“Ha ha ha, looks like you guys aren’t that stupid after all . You do recognise who it belongs to . ” Wu La Xiu swam over, holding a bow in his hand . On it, he notched three ice arrows . When he released it, the three ice arrows attacked the cuttlefish . ”
The three cuttlefish who were shot spat out mouthfuls of fresh blood before collapsing lifelessly on the ground .
“Prince, what do you mean by this?” A cuttlefish glared at Wu La Xiu when he saw his dead clansmen .
“I’m the one who wants to ask you that question . This area does not belong to you, Cuttlefish clan . ” Wu La Xiu created another arrow and notched it again .
“But this place isn’t the territory of the Violet Water Clan either . We came here to capture someone, isn’t your reach a little too wide?”
“Is it?” Wu La Xiu aimed the arrow at the cuttlefish who just spoke, “This place is at the borders of my Violet Water Clan, and it has always been . We haven’t been around to protect it recently, and you dared forget this . Did you really think that this area belongs to someone else?”
When Wu La Xiu finished speaking, he released his arrow as the cuttlefish scrambled to dodge it . However, it was like the ice arrow had eyes and as the cuttlefish was trying to dodge it, it hit him squarely through the heart .
The other cuttlefish were scared out of their wits . The prince was actually this powerful!
“Prince, we were wrong . We’ll leave this place now and never enter here again . ”
Wu La Xiu put his bow down and those cuttlefish clansmen secretly heaved a sigh of relief, thinking that he was planning to let them leave .
“Thank you, Prince, for your forgiveness . We will leave now . ” That cuttlefish was holding on to Third Mo, and didn’t even move yet before a water whip coiled itself around him . With a bit of force, the cuttlefish was crushed .
That water whip then released the cuttlefish before wrapping itself gently around Third Mo, lifting him up from where the cuttlefish were to put him behind them .
The cuttlefish slowly turned the heads over to see Wu La Er holding Third Mo in one hand and water whip in the other . Beside him stood Shui Qing Man .
“Didn’t you agree to let us go? What do you mean by doing this now?”
“When did I say that I would let you go?” Wu La Xiu looked coldly at him, “Since you’ve come to our territory, then you might as well stick around!”
Wu La Xiu and Wu La Er acted together and the entire trooped was disposed off in mere moments .
Third Mo was still giddy even after he left the bubble . However, even though he didn’t recognise them, he knew that they had come to save him . Especially when Wu La Er had lifted him gently over to where he was, he was even more certain of their intentions .
But why? He had never interacted with them before . Why would they help him?
When the cuttlefish had been completely exterminated, the two of them worked together to dispose of the corpses .
“Queen, Mother, they’ve all been disposed of!” Wu La Xiu beamed as he ran back .
Third Mo heard them refer to him as the prince just now, and now, she was the Queen Mother . He guessed that they were the royal clan that ruled over the clan just now . He tried to sift through his thoughts as Shui Qing Man greeted him . He was prepared to speak some words of gratitude when he heard Wu La Xiu ask, “You should be Third Mo, right?”
