The thin boats were only four to five meters long, and on each little boat, there were three to four pirates. These pirates had dark complexions, they were all shirtless, with different demon beast and skull tattoos engraved on them.
On the twelve thin boats, there were more than thirty pirates. These pirates were mostly in the Human and Nascent realms, and only three pirates were in the first sky of Disaster realm.
The pirates held utensils and sticks as weapons, and laughed strangely. They quickly surrounded Linda’s boat.
There were submerged reefs everywhere, and Linda’s boat was slightly big, so it was inconvenient for it to move.
But because these thin boats were elongated and narrow, they were quite agile. They moved in and out of the submerged reefs, like flexible snakes.
Not only were these submerged reefs unable to obstruct them, they were actually like a natural protective barrier for them.
The leading big man with a beard, was topless. His muscles were all popped up, and his body was filled with demonic and monstrous tattoos. He held a big black mace in his hand, and creepily laughed as he came.
On the thin boat of this big man, there stood a flag. There was a blood-dripping eyeball embroidered on the flag, and the flag flew in the sea wind. The blood-dripping eyeball looked like it was blinking, and seemed very ferocious and frightening.
Linda didn’t care in the beginning, however, when she glanced towards that flag, her pretty face suddenly changed. She shouted: “You are the ‘Blood Pupil’ from the Black Sea?”
“Hehe, pretty girl you sure know a lot. If you’ve heard of us the Blood Pupil, then things are a lot easier.” That man with the beard laughed out loud.
Once Carmon, Jett, and the rest heard that these pirates were actually the pirate force ‘Blood Pupil’ from the Black Sea, their faces also changed.
Carmon, who spoke arrogantly before, furrowed his brows deeply, he had a sullen expression.
The Blood Pupil was active in the Black Sea at first, and they never followed any rules. They even dared to loot the ships that dealt with the Heaven Lake Divine Land, the Magical Wonderland, and the Sacred Sect. The Blood Pupil had always acted savagely, and finally this resulted in the three forces of the Black Sea into exterminating them. Thus they could no longer stay in the Black Sea, and had to move to the other seas.
Once the Blood Pupil escaped to another sea, they still acted arrogantly. Once they caught any opportunity, they would rob the ships of the the fifteen forces, just like they always did in the past. Once they realized their situation was unfavorable, they would escape to another sea again, and like that they were always on the move.
In the Endless Sea, the Blood Pupil was the toughest of all the pirate forces. They were also the pirates that annoyed the fifteen forces the most.
Thus, once they heard these people came from the Blood Pupil, both Carmon and Linda, looked a little uneasy. They realized that the situation was not well.
“We are from the Three Gods Sect, we have never had any associations with the Blood Pupil. Unless you would dare to have ideas about us?” Huo Jie’s face was cold, “I don’t think our Three Gods Sect had tried to siege you, so you better not look for any trouble. I don’t think there’s a need to displease the Three Gods Sect just for some worthless resources?”
“Haha, as long as we kill all of you, how would the Three Gods Sect know we did it?” That man with the beard laughed wildly, he looked at Carmon in disdain: “Kid, didn’t you say that you’ll kill as many as they come?”
Carmon’s expression was grim, he snorted coldly.
“Exactly what do you want?” Linda stepped forward, her pretty brows were tightly knitted: “There are only a few rocks on the boat, are they really worth all this trouble?”
“Pretty girl, you have to come with us, our big brother moves with difficulty, and he wants to make a deal with you. If the deal is done, then we won’t do anything to you, maybe we would even gift you some things. How’s that?” That bearded man had a big smile on his face.
“Sister Linda, you can’t go.” Jett couldn’t help but exclaim, “The Blood Pupil has a horrible reputation, god knows what viscious ideas they’re having.”
“Hehe, pretty girl, what do you say? If the deal is done, we can let you leave unscathed. Or else… hehe!” The bearded man said.
“Alright, I’ll go take a look.” Linda pondered for a moment, and suddenly nodded in agreement.
“Linda, I’ll go with you.” Carmon’s face changed, at crucial moments he wasn’t stupid, he said: “If the two of us go together, at least, we can look after eachother.”
“Kid you can’t go.” That bearded man sneered, he shook his head, “A guy like you would only ruin things if you went. You should just calmly stay on the boat.”
“Linda, I’ll go with you.” Right at this moment, Shi Yan already walked out of the corner, and stood alongside Linda.
Carmon, Huo Jie, Jett and the rest were all shocked, they gazed at Shi Yan with a strange look.
“Kid, why are you causing trouble?” Carmon’s face immediately darkened, he sneered.
“Shi Yan, what are you going for?” Jett also exclaimed, “You won’t be of much help there anyway. What exactly are you trying to do?”
Shi Yan didn’t bother with them, he only looked at Linda, and smiled indifferently, “Can you bring me too?”
Linda’s beautiful eyes were filled with complex feelings, her expression kept shifting. Then after a while she finally nodded lightly, and looked towards that bearded man. She said: “I’m bringing someone, I hope you don’t mind?”
The bearded man frowned, he glanced at Shi Yan a few times, and nodded: “Okay.”
“Good.” Linda glanced at Shi Yan, “Follow me.”
“Come up on our boat. There are too many submerged reefs here, there would be too many obstacles if your boat were to move.” The bearded man shouted, a thin boat quickly came up, and another Disaster realm warrior on that boat sneered: “Come on the boat quickly, don’t waste my big brother’s time.”
Linda didn’t hesitated for long, she leapt up, and steadily landed on that thin boat. Shi Yan’s face was calm, he also jumped after Linda, and stood alongside her.
“Brothers, half of you stay here and watch them.” The bearded man shouted loudly, and immediately said: “Kong, let’s go.”
That Disaster realm man on Shi Yan’s boat nodded. He urged the two pirates beside him to move the boat, and the thin boat made its way through the submerged reefs, going quickly towards the left side.
Soon, a forty meter long iron ship suddenly appeared in Shi Yan’s view.
The flag of the Blood Pupil was hung on that iron ship, and on the deck, a well mannered-looking middle-aged man, with a white complexion, squinted his long thin eyes. He had a smile on his lips, and he sat on a wheelchair. His legs were broken off from below the knee, so indeed he could not move very well.
This middle-aged man, with a white complexion, was in the third sky of the Disaster realm. The Profound Qi in his body was vigorous and pure. But his legs were cut off, so his power should’ve been greatly reduced.
Behind him, there were more than twenty Blood Pupil pirates mostly in the Human and Nascent realms. They all had sturdy bodies, and looked aggressive.
“You guys go up.” When the thin boat was about to lean towards that iron ship, the cold-looking pirate named Kong said to Shi Yan and Linda coldly.
Shi Yan and Linda both remained silent, they went up to the deck using the rope ladder that was lowered.
“I am Lin Xiaochang, it truly delights me that you two would come here to see me.” That crippled white-faced middle-aged pirate sat on the wheelchair and put his fists together. He said with a smile on his lips: “You are all outer disciples of the Three Gods Sect?”
“Yes.” Linda nodded, and frowned: “I wonder what deal are we going to discuss, now that you have gotten us here, sir?”
“You guys should be shipping the cargo on the boat to the Gu family’s island, is that right?” That Lin Xiaochang calmly took a sip of tea, and smiled: “We want to add some things onto your boat, I hope you can bring these things along, and give everything collectively to the Gu family. How’s that?”
“Add things?” Linda was surprised, “What things?”
“Do you have to know?” Lin Xiaochang frowned.
“Of course I have to know.”
“Alright then. We want to add boxes of explosives onto your boat.” Lin Xiaochang smiled, “What do you think of it?”
“You want to go against the Gu family?” Linda shouted.
“That’s right.” Lin Xiaochang nodded, his expression suddenly turned dark, “The Gu family had hit us quite hard, we need to teach them a lesson. As long as you do as we say, and send the explosives to the Gu family, then once you leave we will detonate the explosives. All the Gu family members present there be blown to death. Don’t worry, no one would know that it’s the problem with the resources that you guys sent out.”
“No.” Linda shook her head, “We have regulations in this field of work. Our Three Gods Sect and the Gu family are allies, I can’t hurt the Gu family. Secrets will not last forever, once this deal gets exposed, not only would we be executed by the Three Gods Sect, our families would also be doomed. I absolutely will not help you.”
“There is no more room for consideration?” Lin Xiaochang squinted his eyes, he lowered his head and took another sip of tea.
“This deal is absolutely impossible!” Linda said decisively.
“You don’t agree, doesn’t mean others won’t either.” Lin Xiaochang raised his head. But this time he didn’t look at Linda, instead he looked at Shi Yan, “little brother, if you agree to this, we can take care of this woman. Then we will make you the leader of the boat, as long as you ship the things to the Gu family for us, how’s that?”
“I would be glad to help you take care of the Gu family.” Sh Yan smiled indifferently.
LInda’s face changed, she looked at Shi Yan with hatred, and shouted: “You traitor!”
“Good good good!” Lin Xiaochang’s face was joyful, he nodded towards the bearded man and Kong, then said: “This girl is useless now. Seize her, and you guys can have your fun, after that just take care of her immediately.”
“Understood, big brother. Hehe, later I’ll have a taste of this girl first.” The bearded man laughed, he slowly approached Linda with Kong.
These two were like Linda, they were both in the Disaster realm. Now on the boat there were still dozens of Human and Nascent realm pirates, plus Lin Xiaochang was there too, so Linda had no way to escape.
“You think he can convince the others?” Linda sneered, and looked at Shi Yan with hatred, “He’s not even from the Three Gods Sect! If he were to take the lead, the Gu family would never recognize him. The crew members on the boat would also never accept his leadership, this is a waste of your efforts.”
Lin Xiaochang froze, he smilingly looked at Shi Yan, “Little brother, you can’t take care of those crew members?”
“I can’t take care of them alone, but, with all of you, it should be alright.” Shi Yan smiled, “Those who can recognize the facts of a situation are wise. I don’t want to die, I know what I should do.”
“Hmm, you have potential.” Lin Xiaochang leaned his back on the wheelchair, and stretched, he grinned and said: “Little brother, if you have some interest in this girl, you can also have a taste later. But you would need to wait for my two brothers to play with her first. Hmm, how about I let you be the third one to fuck her? Isn’t that generous enough for you?”
“Thank you very much.” Shi Yan lowered his head and put his fists together in gratitude. But the look in his eyes was chilled to the bone, a murderous flash fleeted across his eyes.
The reason why he wanted to follow Linda here, was because he planned to use these people’s lives to recover his own power. Although he also wanted to take care of the Gu family, but the most urgent priority right now was to recover the power in his body as soon as possible.
He quietly calculated for a moment, estimating that the mysterious strange powers formed from these people’s deaths, should’ve been enough to make him recover to his original state.
