Chapter 344 – Fright on board (3)

Beichen Ying expressed that he clearly understood her words, and very kindheartedly thoroughly explained it once for her: “The body of an Amethyst Thorned fish contains rich spirit power . The spirit power from one Amethyst Thorned fish has the same amount of spirit power as one piece of green-colored crystal stone . As a result, everyone on the continent wants to catch an Amethyst Thorned fish . ”

Beichen Ying paused for a moment, then continued to explain: “However, the Amethyst Thorned fish is very clever and rarely can be seen normally . Only on the night of July 15th would they gather around the periphery of the Amethyst Thorned Island on the East Sea . Thus, if you want to capture an Amethyst Thorned fish, this opportunity only comes once a year . ”

No wonder initially, when she and Nangong Liuyun had arrived, Anye Ming had said that sentence in complaint . So as it turned out, today’s mission was to capture some Amethyst Thorned fishes .

“Why would it only happen on the day of July 15th?” Su Luo clearly did not understand . Was July 15th a very special day?

“Nobody knows the answer to this mystery . If people know, then very likely no one needs to wait for this day every year . ” Beichen Ying told it as it is .

“Will there be a lot of people going?” Su Luo curiously asked .

One Amethyst Thorned fish was equivalent to the spirit power in a green-colored crystal stone .

A green-colored crystal stone on the continent was quite rare . The market price was five thousand gold coins . Then, this once a year gathering to catch fish ought to be very lively and bustling with excitement, right?

“No, the number of people would unlikely be many . ” Beichen Ying explained, “It’s because not just everyone can travel across the areas of water filled with waterspouts to reach the Amethyst Thorned Island . There are only a few luxurious yachts in the entire Eastern Ling empire that can cross the waterspouts . ”

Waterspouts? Su Luo was just about to ask, but saw Nangong Liuyun suddenly open his phoenix eyes . A cold ray of light flashed through his eyes . Suddenly, he reached out his hand and with one swoop, he immediately scooped Su Luo into his embrace .

“You——” Su Luo hadn’t finished speaking when she felt a severe jolt come from the hull of the ship .

Su Luo was unable to stand stably, all of a sudden, she bumped into Nangong Liuyun’s extremely strong chest . Her nose was extremely sore from knocking into him, that blood almost flowed from her nose .

Su Luo was still considered to be one of the lucky ones . On the side, those oriole- and swallow-like women who were brought onboard by Beichen Ying, they were originally sitting on the chairs chatting, now, they were sent flying into mid-air by the violent hit on the boat .

When the yacht dropped with the force, they were all mercilessly thrown onto the deck . This fall nearly shattered all the bones in their bodies into pieces . They moaned unceasingly for a very long time; they weren’t able to crawl up .

However, it was still unfinished .

The yacht dropped down and very quickly, was lifted high up to float above, almost flying into mid-air . And once again, it heavily dropped onto the water’s surface, and it continuously looped in this cycle of motion . The deck was shaking so violently such that simply nobody could stand on it .

Those few oriole- and swallow-like women, whose bodies still hadn’t crawled up, were once again ruthlessly thrown up high and again fell to the deck . They just resembled some playthings that nature was toying with in the palm of its hand .

Between these powerful shakes, the yacht again become stable .

A heavy and imposing expression flashed through both Anye Ming and Lan Xuan’s face at this time . Both of them, with very quick steps, walked towards the front of the deck . Beichen Ying also followed after them . He walked a few steps and again turned sideways to look at Nangong Liuyun: “Is second older brother not coming?”

Nangong Liuyun calmly and composedly played with Su Luo’s hair, and leisurely said: “The two of them are more than sufficient . ”

Beichen Ying forced a smile and rubbed his nose . He made a wry face towards Su Luo and happily took off towards the two people with a bounce .

It seemed to Su Luo, this president of the Mercenary Union was practically the big boy next door that never grew up .

Seeing that Beichen Ying had left, Su Luo turned her head around to ask curiously: “Is this here the areas of water with waterspouts?”

Nangong Liuyun was calm and unruffled in the midst of chaos as he tidied up her slightly disarrayed hair for her . There was a touch of a tenderness on his face, as he shallowly smiled and said: “This is merely the beginning and nothing more . Are you afraid?”

Chapter 345 – Fright on board (4)

Su Luo’s beautiful pupils roamed, while she lifted an eyebrow and smiled: “What’s to be afraid of? My swimming technique is pretty good, want to have a race with me?”

Nangong Liuyun’s intoxicating, fluid glance could move heartstrings . He spoilingly and indulgently rubbed her head: “Little crow’s beak (1), I hope what you said will not hit the mark . ”

Could the implication be that this huge luxurious yacht could still sink?

Su Luo stuck out her tongue and poked her head out of Nangong Liuyun’s embrace to explore . She looked towards where Beichen Ying and them were, and somewhat curiously asked: “What are they doing?”

“Suppressing the waterspouts . ” Nangong Liuyun led Su Luo along by the hand, his mood was extremely relaxed: “Do you want to go and have a look? These few guys normally live like princes, it’s rare for them to use their strength . We ought to have a good look, there are not many opportunities of this kind . ”

The always terse, laconic and ‘silence is golden’ Nangong Liuyun would only say long sentences in front of Su Luo . Also, only she was worth him spending a lot of patience to come over to entice and coax her .

Since this was a rare opportunity, naturally, she would not miss it . Su Luo hurriedly nodded her head . She cast Nangong Liuyun’s hand aside and ran towards the place where Beichen Ying and them were located .

That place was at the bow of the ship, it could let her clearly see the situation on the sea surface up ahead .

Nangong Liuyun pampering and spoilingly followed behind her, at any time, he was prepared to protect her well . Yet, he completely disregarded the pile of women lying on the ground with almost all the bones in their bodies shattered into pieces .

Su Luo could clearly see, that ahead, for as far as the eye could see, there were huge whirlpools that appeared on the sea surface . They looked like the wide open, bloody maw of a beast of prey showing off their strength by casting sidelong glances at them .

In the distance, Su Luo saw a ship that was dodging left and right, but finally, it was still swept up by the waterspout . It disappeared completely in a flash, not leaving behind even a bit of a trace .

That ship was about fifty meters long . Although it wasn’t comparable to their current yacht, it also wasn’t considered that much smaller . However, with just the effort of the blink of an eye, it was engulfed completely . This made Su Luo unable to help but to start to be more serious and prudent .

“Afraid?” Nangong Liuyun calmly stood by her side, he reached out his hand to encircle her waist and fastened her to his chest .

Threads of silken hair which were black as ink and were like ribbons, poured down in torrents . A light breeze brushed past, bringing a burst of a good scent that was the sweet scent of jasper flowers . He looked at her deeply and enticingly, unblinkingly watching her . It appeared as if he was looking at the most precious treasure .

Su Luo looked at him, then turned her head again to look at the waterspouts that reached the sky .

The rolled-up waves on the sea surface were like hundreds of flowers, forcing the huge yacht to lean east, then almost fall to the west . The huge waves that hit the hull caused an earth-shattering water screen, sending out bursts of booms and rumbling sounds . They were surrounded by perils which almost couldn’t be avoided or fled from .

Those black waterspouts seemed to be terrifyingly sinister and murderous-looking .

In front of nature’s anger, at the time where the large waves covered the sky, mankind just seemed so insignificant .

Su Luo looked ahead, and indifferently said: “Not that frightening . ” Because with him here, he wouldn’t let her have an accident .

Just at this moment, the originally steady hull of the yacht, all of a sudden, shuddered violently . Huge waves, one after another, again rushed over to attack . Those huge waves that covered the sky swirled the yacht up high and once again threw it down heavily .

With Nangong Liuyun acting as her shield, Su Luo nestled into his side, her body actually didn’t even move a little bit .

While those few women brought by Beichen Ying and them had long ago taken the rope the sailors tossed to them .

One end of the rope was tied to the hull of the yacht, while the other was tied around their waist . Thus, even though it would be extremely painful to be thrown up high and fell down, but at least, they wouldn’t be thrown off the ship . They could still save their life .

In this perilous situation, Su Luo’s gaze landed upon Anye Ming and Lan Xuan’s body .

1) crow’s beak: A person who made an inauspicious remark .
