When Chen Rui arrived at Port Thor in a cloak, the disguised Lucio had obtained a small boat and opened up the guarding points at the port. They were ready to set sail at any time.
What surprised Chen Rui was that there was an unfamiliar woman on the ship. Although she changed her appearance, Chen Rui recognized at a glance that it was Ina.
When Chen Rui glanced at Lucio, Lucio lowered his head in shame.
“It’s not Lucio’s fault.” Ina said, “Before I met you with Samuel’s broken sword, I secretly left a secret tracking green fennel on Lucio. I also heard about that strange assassination. I initially wanted to come and have a look, but I ran into Lucio in disguise on the road. Even if he changed his outfit, he still couldn’t hide the smell of the green fennel. So I was able to follow him along all the way and use this incident to threaten him to tell me the destination. It turns out that Samuel actually went to Storm Island! Speaking of the Storm Sea area, I’m much more familiar than Lucio. I can shorten the voyage by at least a quarter. Don’t you need a guide?”
Chen Rui stared into Ina’s eyes, “Did you really think it through?”
Ina spread her hands. “My father was a merchant. He died of a serious illness. I was forced to become a mercenary to make ends meet. I have always regretted that I could not inherit his legacy. This is a good chance. I have given the commander position to Silva… Before changing careers, I can help a friend first.”
“Merchant?” Chen Rui stared at her for a moment, then he suddenly smiled, “Well, Ms. Merchant, if you have already decided… I think we can set sail. Also, Sir Lucio, if you still can’t obtain Ms. Ina’s favor after trying your best, I’m very sorry because you missed a very good woman.”
Ina’s face suddenly blushed while Lucio smiled embarrassedly a few times. He began to push the boat away from the shore. The spearman’s skills in handling the boat were very amateurish. The fishing ship staggered out of the harbor.
Ina had returned to normal. She frowned as she watched Lucio steer the boat with difficulty, “Although I’m not the most professional guide, you guys seem to be more amateur. We… are just going to sail this small fishing boat to the Storm Sea area? I’m not sure what you can do to rescue Samuel, but what’s certain is that as long as a wave hits, not just me, everything from this ‘big’ boat to this ‘sailor’, then to you sir ‘captain’, will be buried in the belly of the fish.”
Before Ina’s words were finished, a large ship suddenly appeared in front of the small boat. This was not a mockery of the female mercenary. It was really a large jet-black sail ship which was gorgeous and magnificent. It gave a strong visual impact like a black pearl in the blue sea.
Not only Ina, but even Lucio was also stunned. Where did this ship come from? It was taken out of space equipment? I have never heard of a space ring or bracelet that can store such a large ship! What is this method?
At this time, Chen Rui’s voice sounded from the enormous sail ship, “Welcome to my Devil’s Snare Ship, Ms. Guide and the amateur Sir Sailor.”
Ina and Lucio climbed the released rope onto the huge ship. They were surprised to see everything in front of them. They were also considered well-informed mercenaries, but many facilities on this ship were unheard of. Even the deck underneath seemed to be made of very rare materials.
“Master, such a huge ship, I…” Just as Lucio was about to say that he was a sailor who was more amateur than he imagined, he saw Chen Rui take out a yellow glowing stone which then scattered into countless blue sand on the deck.
The sand began to move quickly to form human shapes. After the glow dissipated, dozens of blue sandmen appeared in front of them.
The sandmen were exhausted to death in the battle with Corpse Necromancer King Glorios under the Dead Sea, but the Earth Elemental King once gave Chen Rui a piece of sandstone essence which could revive the sandmen 3 times. This was the first time.
The sandmen were naturally very familiar with Chen Rui. They bowed together. With Chen Rui’s order, they began to work on their respective tasks: raise the sails, steer the helm, and look out. The cooperation was very tacit.
Lucio and Ina stared at the scene in front of them dumbfoundedly, Lucio even bit his finger to check if he was dreaming. Ina was keenly aware that these ‘monsters’ not only possessed extremely sophisticated sailing skills, but they were also all experienced old sailors. None of them were inferior to her.
What is the origin of this Richard? He can actually control these powerful monsters that are unheard of.
“It seems that many damages from the previous battle cannot be repaired automatically, but it should be enough for the time being.” Chen Rui looked at the facilities of the Devil’s Snare Ship and turned his gaze to the stunned Ina, “Okay, Ms. Guide, it’s time for you to play a role. What we have to do now is to speed up and try to get to Storm Island as soon as possible.”
Ina seemed to be awake from a dream. She quickly took out the sea area map.
After 1 day and 1 night, the Devil’s Snare Ship finally sailed into the Storm Sea area.
As its name suggested, the Storm Sea area’s entire sky was gray and hazy with no sunlight all year round. From time to time, one could see the wonders of sea tornadoes like ‘dragons sucking water’. For the nearby ship, this spectacular sight was like a nightmare of Death God.
“Wait a minute, captain, slow down first!” Ina yelled. Chen Rui’s ability to command and sail made her admire him sincerely. Although she noticed the ‘master’ title that Lucio accidentally revealed, she was a smart mercenary. She still pretended not to hear and directly referred to Chen Rui as captain.
“Storm Island is not far from the Garden City, but few people can enter it. In addition to the powerful terrifying creatures on the island, the tornado in the Storm Sea area is also one of the important reasons. The tornado here is very terrifying and it could swirl a large sea ship hundreds of meters in the air. The tornadoes will never disappear due to some mysterious power. Fortunately, there are strong and weak tornadoes, but it must be noted that even if we pass through the weakest tornado, there is also the danger of subversion at any time. Generally speaking, it is possible to pass if we have a wind element or water element magician who can use the power of the corresponding elements to properly offset the effect and reduce the risks…”
Chen Rui took a close look at the sea area map for a while, then he looked at the tornadoes circling in front of him. He gave an order to the sandmen, and the Devil’s Snare Ship sailed toward it quickly.
“Captain!” Ina was taken aback. She didn’t expect that her previous painstaking explanations were all in vain. This sailing direction might be a quick route to Storm Island, but it was also the most stormy area.
With the terrifying tornado ahead, the sea was violently surging while the wind was whistling in their ears. This was only the edge area. The Devil’s Snare Ship had activated the magic thruster and was breaking through the waves. Lucio nervously grabbed the handle on the ship’s side. The sweat on his face was blown dry by the whistling wind as soon as it came out. The sandmen did not hesitate as they faithfully executed Chen Rui’s orders.
When Ina was about to yell stop, she saw Chen Rui’s figure slowly floating up——’Richard’ is not only a beast tamer? He is also a wind element magician? However, even a high level wind element magician can’t control these raging wind elements, let alone deal with the strongest tornado head-on.
A deafening sound overwhelmed the whirring wind for a while. The figure flew straight toward the tornado like a meteor while feeling the increasingly turbulent and raging air current rushing toward his face. Starlights glimmered in his black eyes, and the power of the whole body boiled like flames.
In the next second, Ina and Lucio saw an unforgettable scene at the same time – A hazy figure faced the terrifying tornado at lightning speed, then he punched out.
The entire line of sight seemed to shake violently. The huge tornado connecting the sky and the sea suddenly split into halves. Due to this terrifying power, the sea below was split into 2 and rolled backward like a cracked canyon.
“Go!” Chen Rui’s voice sounded, completely overshadowing the whistling wind. The Devil’s Snare Ship immediately turned on the magic thruster at full speed. The arc of the sails reached its limit, and the ship thrust forward toward the ‘canyon’ like a sharp arrow.
Ina and Lucio stared at the water walls tens of meters high on both sides of the ship. The water could not fall under the action of that powerful force field. Only after the Devil’s Snare Ship drove through the Stormy Sea area, the water returned into its original state, but the huge hurricane turned into 2 small tornadoes that were greatly reduced in power. They moved slowly to the sides under the aftereffect of that punch.
Chen Rui’s figure had returned to the ship as if he had just done a trivial thing. He continued to look at the sea area map.
It took a long time for Ina to react: A simple punch can tear such a terrifying tornado in half? Is this… a wind element magician? Or is this a beast tamer?
The strength demonstrated by this punch alone far surpassed Samuel’s power.
A real Saint?
The female mercenary finally understood why when Samuel and Tecklin went into conflict at the Black Rock Mountain, a word of ‘Richard’ caused the deputy commander who had always been persistent to immediately cool down. It seems that my previous guesses were all wrong. This relationship between ‘Richard’ and Samuel is perhaps…
By the way, the reasons for passing the Thick Soil Castle smoothly…
“Ms. Ina, can you come over and confirm this. Sailing south in this direction should be the quickest route, right? Are there any hidden reef areas or other obstacles on the way?”
Chen Rui’s voice awakened the female mercenary from her imagination. She quickly stepped forward to confirm it carefully.
During the next voyage, Chen Rui crushed several storms in succession. Coupled with the Devil’s Snare Ship’s powerful mobility and balance device, the whole journey was smooth and unobstructed. It was as if this was not the most dangerous Storm Sea area, but just a lake with a breeze.
Ina and Lucio were already a little numb to this. They were in a mesmerized state while witnessing the miracle. They stood on the head of the ship and leisurely ‘watched’ the spectacular view of the tornado being dissected until an island appeared in their line of sight.
TL: This is just the tip of an iceberg😏 when they see his full strength, they will pray him like a God😆
