When Annan said the first password, Benjamin’s pupils shrank slightly and remained calm. When Annan said the second word, Benjamin’s right hand shook slightly.
Annan felt a transparent barrier covering him.
Klaus’s hearing wasn’t that bad.
He naturally heard Annan’s words at such a close distance, but he didn’t quite understand the meaning.
But the moment he saw Benjamin’s reactions, he also reacted with hindsight.
—This may be the password Benjamin set for himself in the nightmare!
In other words…
I’m in a nightmare!
He became furious immediately and realized that he had been deceived.
But those are information that only the Venerated Skeleton’s believers can know.
Could it be that the Venerated Skeleton and Rotten Man officially went to war?
Klaus was a little confused.
But he didn’t hesitate anymore.
Klaus drew his sword, and the silver hilt of his long sword shone brightly.
He mustered his energy and then slashed at Annan with all his strength.
A sharp white wave of air whizzed and slashed towards Annan. It seemingly would cut Annan in half in the next second!
It even cut the table in half directly.
In the blink of an eye, Klaus’ attack reached Annan. At this moment, Annan didn’t even raise his hand or respond.
A layer of illusory white shield circulated Annan like smoke had already emerged, resolving the attack and blocking it.
Annan couldn’t even see what school of magic this was.
“…Ah.” Klaus also seemed to calm down a bit when he saw the results of this attack.
He seemed to know what spell it was, so he simply gave up his plan to continue to launch long-range attacks on Annan. Instead, he turned around and jumped back, stepped directly on the thin air, and began to speed up in the air.
“Can you stop him?” Benjamin asked suddenly.
Annan nodded in response, “Probably.”
“Then I will make it quicker…” Benjamin suddenly mumbled.
What happened in the dungeon nightmare this time was completely different from the past.
A pure white light began to shine at the ring on Benjamin’s right hand.
The old wizard sat on the table calmly, closing his eyes and chanting intently, “The sun is the all-father, the moon is the all-mother. The fertility wind, and the nurturing land—”
Annan also took Don Juan’s silver pocket watch out of his pocket.
The pocket watch case was engraved with a three-eyed bird pattern and inlaid with precious stones. There was no doubt that this item had great monetary value.
Seeing Annan’s actions, Klaus was suddenly stunned.
“Hahaha, the Silver Hand?!” Klaus laughed a little hoarsely. Then, he dashed forward against the oncoming wind, “It seems that my plan is still successful.”
Klaus’ goal was to break the defense.
He didn’t accelerate for too long.
In the exchange of a couple of words, Klaus galloped in with the wild wind!
Although Benjamin could easily stop Klaus’s quick attack, Annan immediately activated “Clanging Object” to be on the safe side.
A white light was shot from the pocket watch. It dashed at the speed of sound and collided with Klaus.
As a large amount of smoke burst out, sharp and high-frequency noises rang in all directions in the air. The sensation of distortion and shock visible to the naked eye spread violently around the contact surface.
The plates and bowls on the ship were instantly shattered. Annan felt an intense discomfort in the body’s heart, like a palpitation.
The power of this pocket watch was more potent than Annan thought!
Klaus collided with this blow but retreated in embarrassment. Except for his ugly complexion, he didn’t seem to be injured much.
When facing Klaus’s charge attack, Annan finally realized how powerful the swordsman who utilized the storm’s power had.
It wasn’t that Klaus was too weak, but Benjamin was far stronger than him.
As if realizing something, Don Juan quickly took off his silver jewelry and handed it to Annan along with a few silver coins.
At the same time, Don Juan also began to recite spells, “Freezing element—”
As he called for the elemental power, his bronze ring shone with a faint brilliance.
“—The frost is the wheel, Klaus is the path.”
Don Juan threw out an azure blue halo that rapidly expanded in the air. It turned into a one-person’s height frost wheel that homed toward Klaus.
Klaus realized that the Frost Wheel was chasing him, so he immediately gave up attacking Annan and the others and dashed in the air.
Although the Frost Wheel had been accelerating, it couldn’t catch up with Klaus moving swiftly in the air. In just two or three seconds, Don Juan’s face began to turn pale.
At this time, Klaus finally responded.
He knew what kind of tactic should he use—
Benjamin is chanting now. He can’t interrupt my actions!
Realizing that this was a nightmare, Klaus didn’t need to worry about the safety of his subordinates…or rather, he didn’t need to worry about the Book of Divine Transporter’s page fragment that Don Juan hid. Instead, he incited a storm on the ship with all his strength.
Accompanied by his extreme speed in the air, the storm blew the ship, making it sway fanatically on the sea.
He hoped this could interrupt Benjamin’s chanting. The best result would be having Don Juan’s forces fall into the sea.
Several of the guards who stood by the ship were caught off guard.
If it hadn’t been for Don Juan grabbing Annan’s hand quickly, he would have been thrown to the sea directly.
The scene was a storm without rain.
As the boat swayed wildly, many waves were blown by the hurricane and spread in all directions. Then, higher and higher waves were raised and slammed onto the deck.
Faced with this intense dizziness powerful enough to incite nausea and vomiting, “John,” being an ordinary person, was defenseless against it.
But Annan didn’t hesitate.
He just put on a weird posture facing forward sideways.
—That was the pose of the “David” statue!
The next moment, “John”‘s appearance suddenly changed.
He instantly became a kind middle-aged man with black hair, black eyes, and well-defined features!
That was “Ghirlandaio·David·Buonaro!”
This was exactly the effect of Annan’s curse, The Last Work “David”!
David was a Great Wizard at the peak of Silver Rank but completely unable to use Destruction spells. He possesses the spell casting abilities of the Prophet school and Idol school. When using the spells of these two schools, his level was temporarily regarded as Level 30.
At the same time, he could be regarded as a mighty machine-operated golem with divinity.
Although Annan still hadn’t obtained the Prophet and Idol spells, it didn’t stop him from transforming into Ghirlandaio.
On the one hand, that granted him a heavy weight.
Ghirlandaio was a marble statue, close to 1.8 meters; he weighed one-third of a ton!
He stepped on the ground hard, made a hole in the deck, and reached in with a foot to fix his body firmly. Then he lunged forward, reached out one hand, and pressed that hand on the ground so that he could stay firmly on the ground.
Since David had no internal organs, there was naturally no seasick issue. Its heavy body allowed Don Juan to grab him while he held Benjamin’s sleeve to prevent them from being thrown out to the sea!
As Don Juan’s wheels chased to the limit in the air, they collapsed.
Klaus looked at Annan and others again. The storm gradually subsided.
Annan didn’t continue altering all the silver products Don Juan handed over as cannonballs.
Instead, he stood up and turned one of the silver ornaments into a rapier. He then used all the remaining silver coins to strengthen it. He held the sword with the hand he had just supported himself on the ground.
Defending with such a fragile sword was a bit ridiculous in front of the Silver Rank swordsman.
But for the time being, it was better than nothing.
“Is this what you look like, David…” Klaus’s vague voice came along with the storm.
Like a tornado bending down in midair, he launched another Charge at Annan again!
Annan only had time to swing his strongest attack at Klaus.
—His Frost Sword!
But at this time, Benjamin’s spell had completed.
To be more accurate. Benjamin had already completed the spell, only to activate it in the most timely manner.
The plank of the entire ship had seemingly become alive.
The dense vine-like tentacles sprang up quickly, growing between Annan and Klaus, completely blocking the hurricane that was blowing at the group.
Realizing that the situation turned dire, Klaus braked immediately to flee upwards.
But those tentacles grew upward swiftly along with Klaus.
In the end, a massive wooden palm nearly fifty meters high protruded from the deck.
It quickly pinched Klaus as if he was a mosquito.
At this time, the ship had lost its original appearance.
It was now a wooden fist floating in the sea.
Just like the Riot’s company logo .
Annan, Don Juan, and Benjamin all stood on the thumbs that clasped inwardly.
“Don’t panic. None of them died…”
Benjamin gave Annan a rare smile and said slowly, “I keep them alive so that we can talk.”
Annan’s pupils shrank slightly.
…Is the power of the Alteration Wizard?
