507 Incomparable 14

 It was silent when Gu Nianzhi went into the water. She did not create any splashes, just like the best Olympic diver. She felt the electric currents the moment she entered the water. It felt as though countless needles were pricking every inch of her body. Tightening her jaw, she bore the pain and dove downwards.

Just like she thought, the moment she went through the pain on the surface of the water, there wasn't any more current once she was approximately two meters underwater.

Gu Nianzhi opened her eyes and looked at the world of brilliant blue in front of her. She thought of the things she saw and silently admired the people who set this place up. Pure still water would not carry electric current. However, water from the environment usually carried impurities, and thus would definitely conduct electricity. Seawater would definitely be a conductor as well.

However, the person who set this place up cleverly used the blue hole's surroundings and covered the entire area with an electric arc from top to bottom, using a material that couldn't be seen with the naked eye, separating the blue hole and the rest of the waters.

"This is too clever..." Gu Nianzhi praised in her heart repeatedly as she swam quickly towards the bottom of the blue hole.

...

Huo Shaoheng returned to the rock where he was hiding with Zhao Liangze. Seeing that he was still trying to fix the communicator, he smiled exasperatedly and tapped his shoulder.

Zhao Liangze raised his head. Seeing that Huo Shaoheng had returned, he screamed loudly and zoomed over to give him a hug. Patting him hard on the back, he created splashes, even underwater. The mask he wore cut off his voice. Huo Shaoheng couldn't hear anything, but he could tell that Zhao Liangze was extremely excited by the strength he patted him with.

Huo Shaoheng patted him back and hid behind the rocks again. They began signing what happened in the waters to each other. It was then that Zhao Liangze realized that the electrical fence could enclose even the water's surface! Zhao Liangze felt that his eyes would've popped out of their sockets in awe if not for the diving goggles.

He signed excitedly, "...We thought that this was a fairly advanced electrical fence, but judging from the looks of it, it's way more advanced than any electrical fences used by the military!"

Huo Shaoheng nodded but wasn't as excited as Zhao Liangze. He'd be over the moon if such an advanced technology belonged to them. However, this advanced technology was keeping them trapped under the water. How could he be happy about it? Such a dark advanced technology; it'd be scary to imagine if another country got hold of it...

The two of them leaned against each other, resting behind the reefs. They were using just one oxygen mask in order to ration their oxygen supply. Slowly, time passed. Their oxygen supply was dwindling and running out. They hadn't intended to spend much time there, so the oxygen tanks they'd brought with them were small and would definitely be used up.

In order for Huo Shaoheng to have a higher chance of survival, Zhao Liangze had been intentionally lowering his oxygen intake starting ten minutes ago. He felt that Huo Shaoheng was way more important than he was, and he was willing to give Huo Shaoheng the chance of living. He felt that it was worth it, even if he were to die, as Huo Shaoheng would definitely avenge him. By then, he'd get Huo Shaoheng to burn some computer programs for him, so that he could still be updated on the advancement of computers even when he was down there.

He also lowered his activity level in order to conserve more energy and tried his best to not get discovered by Huo Shaoheng. After only a short while, he felt that he was already beginning to hallucinate. It wasn't a sea of blue in front of him anymore. Instead, it was a beautiful villa with two gorgeous ladies in white tennis outfits holding onto tennis rackets on their way to the court for a game.

They were giggling between themselves as they walked, and the sun shone through the spaces in between the leaves. The taller lady's skin glowed a healthy shade of bronze, and her smile showed a perfect row of white teeth. Her plump lips were where Zhao Liangze wanted his lips to be. Yes, this taller lady was none other than Bai Yueran in his mind.

He looked at the scene in front of him weakly and tried to reach out to touch the lady's face, but the lady disappeared like bubbles. He had just begun to reach out, and she disappeared without a trace in front of him.

The sea of blue quietly returned to his area of focus without as much as a ripple. Zhao Liangze felt a wave of disappointment wash over him as his brain was suffering from a severe lack of oxygen. "Don't go... Yueran... Don't go..." He tried his best to reach out in front of him and catch the lady who disappeared. He lost control of himself for a minute and fell forward.

It was then that Huo Shaoheng realized there was something wrong with Zhao Liangze. He held him by the shoulders and hit his face with all his might. However, Zhao Liangze was unresponsive. He had already fallen into a coma.

Huo Shaoheng connected the oxygen supply to Zhao Liangze's mask to let him breathe. However, he was unable to take in oxygen. Huo Shaoheng wasn't sure if it was due to Zhao Liangze being in a coma, or if he was persistent in not taking in any oxygen even after blacking out so that he could save that last bottle for Huo Shaoheng.Find authorized novels in Webnovel,faster updates, better experience,Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.

Huo Shaoheng tightly hugged Zhao Liangze's almost lifeless body. His sadness was beyond words. They did not mind sacrificing, but such a pointless sacrifice was his fault! He couldn't allow Zhao Liangze to die here. He had to get him out!

Huo Shaoheng carried Zhao Liangze as he tightened his jaws. Kicking his legs straight, he shot upwards like an arrow. He used all his energy to swim upwards towards the surface of the water. This time, he was going to use his body as a shield to get Zhao Liangze out of there!

Unless the opponents were going to use bombs to blow him into pieces, he was still going to protect his comrade!

...

Gu Nianzhi moved her arms and dove towards the bottom of the ocean just like a mermaid. The deeper she went, the less she could feel the electrical currents. The moment she was ten meters underwater, she couldn't feel any pain from the current anymore.

She increased her speed of diving and opened her eyes to the best of her ability in an attempt to look for Huo Shaoheng and Zhao Liangze. She only realized that she had been too rash when she was in the area of the blue hole. The blue hole's area is massive. How will I find Huo Shaoheng and Zhao Liangze like that?

However, an idea immediately popped into her mind. She had confirmed that their communication system didn't work because of the disruption of the electrical arcs. Since she was already in the blue hole, and the arc was on the surface of the blue hole to disrupt connections between people above the water and the people in the blue hole, it should be working there.

Gu Nianzhi took out a small communication device from her diving suit and pressed it repeatedly. She sent out Morse code repeatedly, which she had learned from Yin Shixiong. "I am Gu Nianzhi. Huo Shao, Brother Ze, where are you guys? I'm already within the area of the blue hole. I'm at..." She sent them the location indicated on her tracking device through the communication device.

...

Huo Shaoheng carried Zhao Liangze's body and swam upwards towards the surface of the water with all his might. All of a sudden, he felt the small communication device on his throat vibrate. He swam as he felt the vibrations from the device on his neck. It felt increasingly familiar, just like Morse code!

He took the device and placed it on his ear immediately. "Didi... Di... Didida..." A series of Morse code was sent repeatedly. It was repeating the same message: "I am Gu Nianzhi, Huo Shao and Brother Ze, where are you guys? I'm already within the area of the blue hole..."

Huo Shaoheng finally managed to decipher the entire message and stopped swimming in shock. He stopped for a couple of seconds carrying Zhao Liangze's body before speeding up in Gu Nianzhi's direction.

Gu Nianzhi's method worked like a dream. She received Huo Shaoheng's reply within a short time and was elated. She almost forgot that she was within a high danger zone of the blue hole and swam in circles in joy. Looking at the splashes, she felt extremely excited. When Huo Shaoheng arrived carrying Zhao Liangze's unconscious body, that was exactly what he saw.

Gu Nianzhi looked like a fairy in that black diving suit. Swimming in circles underwater, her perfect figure among the splashes she created, Huo Shaoheng could feel her joy even from a distance. It felt like an avalanche in his heart. Everything else was buried, and all he could see and feel was a happy figure dancing in the brilliant world of blue in front of him. He could feel the corners of his eyes turning wet. Huo Shaoheng raised his head quickly and took a deep breath to calm himself.

This silly kid...

He carried Zhao Liangze's unconscious body and swam over. Gu Nianzhi swam another circle and saw Huo Shaoheng swimming towards her when she turned her head. She swam towards him happily and wanted to swim right into his embrace when she saw him carrying the unconscious Zhao Liangze. She understood immediately and signed to Huo Shaoheng, "What happened to Brother Ze? Did you guys meet with danger?"

Huo Shaoheng shook his head and signed back, "Why did you come down? Where are the snipers up there?" The moment the violet electric arcs were turned on, he had no choice but to dive back down, so he wouldn't know what had happened up there.

Gu Nianzhi signed back to him,"...All died. Yamaguchi Youko died, too. Yes, the middle-aged woman who wanted to kill you. Long story. It's safe above the water now. I've destroyed the electrical arc's power supply. The electrical current above the water is weak now. Let's go up."

Huo Shaoheng was elated when he got the news and pulled Gu Nianzhi towards him by the waist, giving her a big hug. Gu Nianzhi melted into him and felt herself go weak all over. Huo Shaoheng's strong arms went around her waist. She was floating in the pure, brilliant blue water. Everything seemed so perfect, like she was in a dream. Even that electrical arc above the water felt just like a backdrop in that beautiful dream.

...

He Zhichu followed closely with a stern face behind Gu Nianzhi as she jumped into the water and swam quickly forward. However, the weakened electrical current within the area of the blue hole seemed to get a recharge the moment he swam to the edge of the area. The power of the purple electrical arc soared, and the sounds of electricity could be heard.

He Zhichu tried to enter the compound multiple times, but the electric shock was beyond him. On the tenth try, he blacked out due to electrocution. He would have been dead if his subordinates had not arrived in time to take him away...

...

Gu Nianzhi jumped off without a care and left Yin Shixiong alone on the damaged Millennium Ota. After contemplation, he finally got in touch with Barbados's governor's office and Cuba's embassy. He reported the incident and requested their best chopper immediately to save Huo Shaoheng.

The moment the people from the embassy heard that Huo Shaoheng had met with danger, they reported the incident to their governing office. Ten minutes later, the latest military chopper had already taken off from Cuba, moving in the direction of the blue hole.

...

Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng brought the unconscious Zhao Liangze near the blue hole's surface. Looking up and thankful for Huo Shaoheng's extreme observance, he pulled Gu Nianzhi who had almost swum her way up. When she realized why he had done that, she was taken aback as well. The weakened electrical arc had somehow managed to recharge itself and was raging like a ghostly blue fire, burning a field of death.
