Alomitsu - Chapter 14
Chapter 14: The Prisoner (9)
The ship was sailing on the black ink sea, and the shining balls of light were swimming under the water. The moonlight was always shining on Kild’s pirate army. As if it had abandoned us, it never shined on us or even the sea.
The remaining oil lamps were shaking in the storm. I was standing on the bow of the boat, my body was wet from the rainstorm, shaking like an old man.
The blue lightning cut through the dark sea like a demon’s roar. At this moment, I saw! Under the water, there was a big oval mouth with sharp yellow teeth. It was so big in fact, it could swallow a ship 3 times our size.
Under the deep sea, there was a fear that people never knew existed, and now, It was at the bottom of our ship, following us closely.
Small, fragile, and powerless were just a few words that could describe us now. I turned my head to look at the pirate bone army that was gradually being left far behind by us. They didn’t step into this black sea. Is it because this black sea made them feel fear?
I saw the white-robed Assassin’s arms trembling slightly, and his fingers kept hitting the wood at the helm. Even though his expression was still cold, his body could not calmly face the current unknown fear.
Our boat began to shake violently and began to sway to the right. I grabbed the guardrail to prevent myself from falling, but the children on the deck were thrown into the dark sea.
I didn’t even hear the horrified cry of the children, but I clearly saw that the moment a child fell to the surface of the sea, the balls of light swimming around immediately rushed over, and then dived under the surface of the sea.
The child never appeared on the surface of the sea again, and we could not even see the struggling splashes. Everyone was panicking about it. In a short period of resistance, we experienced too much sadness and fear, each of our nerves were tightened to the limit.
We were begging for the non-existent God, begging for us to survive this bad luck, and I even wanted to call it a dream, because it was a terrible dream.
The surface of the sea began to turn, and something mixed with waves fell on the deck. I saw a black viscous liquid with a white ball and waves falling on the deck.
These spheres were extremely dim, and they were not the same as the shining spheres underwater, but I felt fear from them. For some reason, the instinct given to humans by nature told me that these things must never be touched.
There was a violent collision sound from the bottom of the boat, and I heard the screams of those who pulled the oars at the bottom of the boat. The next moment, our boat was sinking.
“Completely over.” My face was gray, Rui, who was on the deck, held the feather on his head and placed it in his palm in prayer.
“I can die, but I have to send this news to the Pope.” The white-robed Assassin let go of the helm. At this moment, the man who looked like steel in my mind also gave up.
He and I looked at each other holding the board.
“What the hell is this?” I first asked the white robed Assassin. He shook his head, indicating that he also didn’t know what they were.
“Then, you are so desperately trying to kill the pirates, what does it have to do with the archbishop,” I asked again.
At the very least, I wanted to know what I was killed by. The archbishop and the pirate Kild had a relationship, then this white robed Assassin knew at least what that was, giving me a clear reason for my death.
“I don’t know, but I beg you for one thing. As an assassin, I have never asked anyone, but the situation is extremely special now, and I must convey this news.”
I looked at the Roman’s sincere eyes and nodded. During this battle, I now find that I admire the Roman very much. I’m not sure if I can live, but If I really live, of course I would do anything. What I said was that if I survived, I would help him convey the news. Maybe I could get the reason why I came to this strange ocean from it.
“If you survive, go to the Rhine River in the Holy Roman Empire. You go east along the Rhine River. The first village is a village named Ryder Village. There is a church there and the pastor is the person I contacted.”
The white robed Assassin took out an extremely precious pure gold cross from his arms. This cross was equivalent to representing the Pope. He handed it to me, such a precious thing turned out to be given to a person who was not familiar with me.
I was so touched by his trust in me, and I was deeply impressed by this white robed Assassin’s determination.
“I haven’t asked your name yet?” When I took the heavy precious cross, I asked this white robed Assassin.
The ship shook violently again, and a vortex began to form under the sea. The Assassin and I clung to the bow of the ship that was leaning forward, or being swallowed.
A slave was thrown into the whirlpool, and I felt that I was almost able to catch him. The whirlpool swirling on the sea surface had a strange suction force, and it formed a strong air current.
“Mr. Dante, catch it.” Just as I was clutching the plank tightly, a hemp rope flew towards me. It was Rui, the young man firmly tied himself to the mast. Then he threw the other end of the rope towards me. Looking at the hemp rope twisted into a loop beforehand, I really wanted to kiss this thoughtful boy excitedly.
The boat plank began to shatter, and the white robed Assassin next to me quickly appeared on the boat plank, “If there is a chance to meet again, I will tell you my name.” The white robed Assassin told me.
After saying this, the next moment, he was in my sight, and the broken plank of the ship flew towards the extremely dark vortex.
“Damn it!” I immediately grabbed the hemp rope with one hand. At this moment, my position broke apart. I now relied solely on Rui to tie me with the hemp rope, and my hair was in an inverted posture.
Ruiy roared in pain. I saw that due to the hemp rope being pulled too hard, Rui’s belly appeared blood-blue, and the hands I was holding began to drip blood. The blood dripped immediately, all swallowed by this whirlpool.
The boat quickly moved towards the bottom of the sea to be silent, Rui pulled the rope to the center of the boat, even if a trace of blood dripped from his abdomen.
Now there were not many people left on the ship, all the others disappeared. There was a big hole in the middle of the ship. The big hole was not the kind that was smashed, but it was like it was melted, with pieces of green mucus stuck on it.
In order to survive, Rui and I were struggling desperately for as long as we could. At this moment, the whirlpool suddenly stopped, the surrounding water surged, and a powerful storm rushed from the sea.
Thunder and lightning, lightning and thunder.
I saw a series of black storm water jets rising to the sky spinning around me. These water jets seemed to be connected to the sky, like the power of sea beasts and the anger of Poseidon.
The surface of the water I was in was also surging with huge stormy waves, like a spinning column of water in an underground church palace, but this time the difference was that Rui and I were tied with twine. The storm tore the masts, the two of us were in the eye spinning rapidly.
This huge violent current made me unable to breathe, and I was so suffocated with pain, that the rapid rotation made the blood flow in my head constantly surge up. In this tornado-like storm, my stinging eyes saw a huge black shadow. It was spinning in the storm, but I couldn’t see what it was.
In this extreme environment, my eyes went dark as they did last time, and I lost consciousness.
Thinking about it now, if I knew the future at that time, I would definitely choose not to grab Rui’s hemp rope, but to die, because as the puzzle was revealed, I stepped into more terrifying forbidden land.
