Being a Koi in a Survival Game - Chapter 35
Chapter 35: Nautical Carnival Extra (End)
On the third day of the voyage on the “Homeward Journey” cargo ship, a person walked out of the noisy room. He wore a gloomy expression.
“Xiao Li, you’re out so early. Did you lose money again?” The sailor he passed by started making fun of him.
During the long sea voyage, gambling was their most popular form of entertainment.
Obviously, it wasn’t a good time for this joke. Li Hai glanced at the sailor with annoyance and said, “Bad Luck.”
After speaking, he took the elevator to the top deck without looking back.
Today’s gambling cost him all the money he brought for this voyage. It was equivalent to doing nothing for the next one or two months.
Li Hai took a deep breath. He could only think about how to make money in other ways.
If he couldn’t bring back any money, he would definitely be scolded to death by his wife at home. That materialistic woman!
What could make him earn money at sea?
Other than gambling, it could only be the cargo on the ship.
This wasn’t the first time Li Hai had entertained such ideas.
Li Hai moved skillfully between the containers. He greedily scanned each of them. The ship’s lights kept rotating, casting intermittent shadows on the deck.
Suddenly, he heard a noise coming from a nearby container. It was even accompanied by faint growls.
There were people inside!
When doing something wrong, what one fear the most was being discovered.
If someone caught him in the act, he could only forget about working on ships in the future.
Li Hai became very nervous. He held a wrench tightly in his hand and circled the container, but there was no more sound from inside.
Apart from him, there was no one else on the deck.
“Just scared myself.”
Li Hai muttered to himself, then spat into his palm. He took out a pair of pliers.
His movements were as stealthy as a thieving mouse. Soon, he opened a small gap in the container. The foul smell that wafted out made him feel nauseous. He had no idea what was inside this container, but it hella stank so bad.
As Li Hai prepared to close the container, a stiff arm reached out and grabbed him. The next moment, his wrist was bitten.
His screams sounded on the top deck.
At the same time, a violent commotion erupted from inside the container. It was as if multiple footsteps were charging towards Li Hai.
Feeling an inexplicable sense of crisis, Li Hai quickly closed the container door. He fled towards the ship’s cabin in a panic.
The head chef happened to come across Li Hai coming down. Upon seeing his flustered state, the chef was taken aback, “Xiao Li, what’s wrong with you?”
“N-nothing.” Li Hai didn’t dare tell anyone he had opened a shipping container. He clenched his injured wrist and forced out a smile. “I’m going to change my clothes.”
His incoherent words made the Head Chef feel inexplicable.
Suddenly, he noticed the dark blood dripping from Li Hai’s hand.
“What happened to your hand?” The Head Chef asked.
“I accidentally scraped it just now.” Li Hai said with a pale face, “It’s a minor issue. I’ll take care of it right away.”
The Head Chef looked at him, then said with slightly furrowed eyebrows, “Forget it, I’ll give you half a day off today. Go and see Dr. Song to bandage it for you.”
After two months and twenty-seven days…
The cargo ship “Homeward Journey” sailed back to the port. The vast expanse of the sea was no calm as the cargo ship silently drifted.
The bodies and containers that had fallen around earlier had already drifted away with the waves, scattered in different directions.
However, this state-of-the-art cargo ship was equipped with the most advanced navigation system. It could follow a pre-set course and return to the harbor even without human operation.
In the Federal State of Texas.
As the mist rose over the tranquil harbor, the drifting cargo ship finally arrived at its destination. It docked at the port without making a sound, while the people asleep were unaware of what this ship had brought them……
“Mama, that big ship is so dirty!” A child’s voice unexpectedly rang out in the early morning.
