Chapter 430 – A new lease on life (2)
Very quickly, on the sea surface, lightning and thunder mixed together and a huge gale erupted . It was like a ferocious beast producing thunderous roars, making the people who heard it tremble with fear .
The originally drowsy Su Luo was immediately startled awake .
Just at this moment, lightning streaked past, following right after was a scorched smell then the thunder overhead directly smashed down!
However, the peal of thunder left no time for her to prepare nor cover her ears .
With an imposing and majestic manner, it directly struck on the ice sculpture of Su Luo .
Fortunately, she was concealed away within a very thick layer of ice, otherwise, a person would swiftly be hacked into a charred mess .
But even so, it still scared Su Luo enough .
One could only hear the surface layer of her ice sculpture issuing sizzling sounds of ‘sss’ that lingered on .
Yet, this was merely the beginning . In this pitch-black night, Su Luo, who was floating on the sea surface, really, truly experienced what was called a hair-raising, violent tempest .
She, who was frozen within the ice sculpture, could see through the layer of ice, the flashing lightning and rolling thunder with torrents of rain .
She saw the lightning dancing in the horizon like a dragon serpent, bellowing and snarling .
She saw the torrential rain pouring down in buckets and beating upon the sea surface, each and every one of them forming a deep hole .
And her ice block was like a small skiff, slapped by the waves, rocking about and swaying, sliding to the east then falling to the west .
When the huge wave swept her up, it was the same as being on a roller coaster . She was rolled up and lifted up high, nearly several tens of meters above the sea surface .
When the huge wave rolled down, she was again heavily thrown down without the least bit of sympathy .
Despite being hidden in the ice layer, Su Luo was still thrown about until she was dizzy and confused while being light-headed .
Su Luo felt that she had been forced to suffer extreme bitterness .
At this moment, she was being slapped around and rammed until she simply didn’t know her own orientation . She could only hope that she didn’t get swept into the waterspout region, otherwise, if she was sucked into the waterspout, then she really would be done for .
This night, Su Luo could only helplessly allow the huge waves and the gale to ravage her . But she had no other alternative, so she could only try to find joy in the sorrow and think that this was a free-of-charge roller coaster in the ancient times .
Fortunately though, she was now frozen in a layer of ice, her entire body was protected . The force of impact from the waves did not injury her, if not, this night would seriously be extremely difficult .
Gradually, Su Luo started to feel the meaning of being trapped .
The tide with the howling winds and torrential rain gradually settled down . Her psyche unwittingly relaxed, and her eyes started to close as she fell asleep .
The she that had fallen asleep, was completely unaware that a person was calling for her throughout this journey .
When she opened her eyes once more, it was because she had been woken up by the burning sun .
Su Luo opened her eyes to glance at the environment in her surroundings, immediately, excitement flashed through her eyes .
She actually caught sight of a black dot up ahead, since she was separated from it by a large distance, she couldn’t see it clearly .
But to be able to see a black dot on the ocean’s surface, it was either a vessel or an island . It was still much better when compared to just drifting aimlessly on the ocean .
Su Luo used her two fingers and stroked forward with all her strength .
Last night was filled with high wind and pressing waves, her two fingers could not be used, but now, the waves on the sea surface were not that big .
Su Luo continued to row ah, row forward with all her effort…
With great difficulty, she rowed about ten meters forward . Then, a wave came at her in a head-on collision .
The pitiful Su Luo was immediately rolled backwards by about twenty meters by the wave .
Su Luo’s heart silently flowed with two noodle-like, broad strips of tears . But very quickly, she pulled herself together and spared no effort to move forward by row ah, row…
Afterwards, another wave hit her head-on and pushed her back even further .
Su Luo simply wanted to look up to the sky and hiss for a long time!
What kind of toying with her was taking shape! Even using a swing, was not played with this kind of method!
Was it because before, she had overdrawn her good luck, so now she needed to use misfortune to settle the debt . It was simply… . too much! Su Luo angrily stuck up her middle finger at the Heavens .
