This is a Miracle - Chapter 39
“The moon is obscured and the wind is mellow. It’s really good weather.”
at and asked the old man to slowly drive the boat towards the coast.
The number of small boats they had was sufficient. Lilith doesn’t need to use her spell to create a new one. The crowd boarded the five boats and soon reached the port.
It was a simple wooden port made by the pirates.
There are a large number of single-story wooden houses distributed on it, which could roughly accommodate 3,000 people. It can be considered a medium-sized fishing village.
“It’s a bit too close.”
The location of the houses is very close to the coast. Moreover, there are still some night-watch pirates patrolling around.
However, they didn’t see a single ship in the wooden harbor,
“The absence of ships means that another group of pirates aren’t here.”
“There are still people out?”
“It seems that we have to prepare for another battle after this one.”
The old man had previously judged that the number of pirates was likely to exceed 3,000.
However, after investigation, they found that there were only 1,284 people on the entire island. Moreover, there wasn’t a single ship on the island, hence they guessed that a large number of pirates were probably out plundering.
“There are only about 1,200 people here.”
With just a glance, the old man roughly judged the population of the fishing village. He asked,
“There are still 100 more people on the island?”
Bai Luo said,
“During my previous investigation, I found that they are living in the forest, which is a bit strange.”
“What are they doing in the forest?”
“I don’t know.”
Everyone was a little puzzled, why did the pirates run to the interior of the island, is there any treasure there?
“Could they be because of some hidden treasure?”
Little John made a big brain guess. This is indeed a possibility, Bai Luo said,
“100 pirates guarding a treasure. Hm… There is such a chance.”
“No matter what, let’s kill this group of people first.”
The moment Bai Luo ordered, everyone immediately took action,
Issafeiya, Inya, Jerah, Little John, and others, all people that had good archery moved at the same time.
They walked softly and silently on the muddy ground.
They were nimble and had a clear division of labor, drawing their bows and arrows and shooting at the enemies in one go.
Each arrow harvested a life, no need for a second one.
Due to the swiftness and abruptness of the attack, these patrolling pirates fell on the ground without even having a chance to speak.
The whole process hardly attracted the attention of other pirates.
Deep in the darkness, Lilith used a sound muffling fairy magic to ensure that everyone successfully infiltrates this small fishing village.
Everyone swiftly walked forward, shooting with great frequency, killing the pirates standing on the hanging bridges, fences, and towers of the houses one after the other.
“What’s that sound?”
The loud sound caused by the body of a pirate falling from the tower finally attracted the attention of the pirates.
“What’s going on?”
A pirate looked at the corpse at his feet in horror, then quickly gazed at the surrounding darkness, faintly seeing the outline of other corpses.
“An enemy has come ashore! It’s an enemy attack!!”
The alarm bells were rung, waking all pirates from their sweet dreams, including their temporary leader Mondo.
“Quick, all of you get your weapons! Damn, who is attacking us?!”
These pirates were dressed in rags, and because they hadn’t taken a bath for many years, they all reeked of sweat and fish.
“Everyone on night duty is dead!”
“How is it possible?!”
“They were killed with one blow, all of them!”
Mondo examined the bodies. It wouldn’t have mattered if he didn’t check, but upon checking, Mondo immediately broke out in cold sweat.
“Who the hell is attacking? Such terrifying archery.”
Almost none of the corpses were attacked twice. All of them died with just one arrow!
“Is everyone here?”
“They’re all up.”
“Where are the enemies, where the hell are they?”
A pirate village with thousands of people, with no reasonable command structure, was suddenly awakened from sleep. Naturally, discipline and organization wouldn’t be expected from them. Most of them didn’t even know what happened.
Looking at the chaos, Bai Luo raised his hand and said, “As planned, separate!”
There are too few Ardennes, just about 30.
Even if they barged into the pirates’ village, due to Lilith’s magic, they were not detected. Everyone swiftly acted, as if they had rehearsed countless times in their minds.
Screams continuously sounded, because they weren’t shot at the head, but at their belly, causing them to wail in pain.
“Where are they?”
“Who’s shooting arrows in the dark?”
“Light the torches, hurry up!”
“Over there! There seems to be a figure over there!”
Their arrows have been almost used, and Lilith’s magic needs to be used in too many places. Moreover, the Ardennes move too quickly. It isn’t a surprise that there was some omission in the end.
Sure enough, Bai Luo heard the cry of the pirates——they found the Ardennes.
“You can’t even see in front of you, are you blind?!”
Bai Luo ordered Shirley to release her miracle light, then decisively appeared in front of the pirates and started to attract their attention,
“What is that thing? The horse! The horse is glowing!”
The pirates had never seen such a thing. Most of them don’t know about the existence of miracles, even Mondo isn’t very clear.
“Shoot! Quick! Shoot it!”
Without organization or discipline, Mondo just ordered everyone to attack, but as soon as his voice sounded, screams of pain sounded from the rear.
The Ardennes in the forest attacked again, leaving Mondo at a loss.
He didn’t know how many Ardennes there were, and he was overwhelmed by Shirley’s white light. Finally, he completely abandoned reason and took the lead in charging with an axe,
“Follow me, let’s kill him first!!”
Bai Luo noticed the large number of arrows flying towards him, but he didn’t heed them.
There were 1,200 pirates, and the ones that died during the previous attack were no more than 50.
However, the area of the fishing village is too large in comparison to the 30 Ardennes. They wandered through the narrow gaps of the houses and attacked the pirates passing by.
The several Ardennes teams literally fragmented the disorganized pirates even further.
Although they said that 1 would fight 100 at the beginning, they are actually facing no more than 100 people at the same time.
In just 5 minutes, the Ardennes killed more than 100 people in this chaos.
A pirate fell to the ground, and before he could react, a sharp dagger slashed his neck.
Sheila is only 13 years old, but at this time, relying on her petite stature, she used her extreme flexibility to locate and kill pirates in one crisp shot.
Several severed heads flew around, but not a drop of blood fell on Sheila’s body.
Five or six pirates noticed a little girl, and they immediately realized that the other party was the enemy,
Sheila glanced at them coldly, then pounced forward without any hesitation.
Diana clenched her fist and slammed it into the heart of the nearest pirate.
The tremendous force not only shattered the pirate’s heart and dented his chest, but also sent him flying towards the four or five people behind him, pushing them collectively on the ground.
Drawing her spear, Diana stabbed backward, skewing two pirates that tried to sneak on her from behind.
“Dong! Dong! Dong!”
Several arrows were blocked by a shield, followed by a burst of painful wailing.
Diana looked at the roof to the side, where Jerah was standing, and next to her were the archers that tried to shoot her, dead.
“On the roof!”
Several pirates climbed up, but Jerah’s speed was faster, she leaped down, somersaulted, and stretched her hand to catch the head of one of the pirates. The moment she landed on the ground, she used the inertia to twist the pirate’s head and throw his body away.
Dropping her longbow to the ground, she pulled out two machetes that emitted a cold glow.
The pirates beside Jerah only felt a trace of shill on their neck. The next moment, blood spurted out like a river,
“Heh, this is what an Ardennes is all about.”
Jerah ignored those pirates struggling at the door of death. She was very excited at this time. Her blood was boiling.
“Hahaha, come again, come again!”
Noel was the same as her.
The young man was holding a long spear and skillfully waving it around. He not only stabbed the pirates to death but also picked up their bodies with his spear and used them as projectiles.
Every time he waved his spear, the sound of bones crunching and the wailing of pirates could be heard.
Pirates didn’t wear armor. In the face of the Ardennes that were born with superhuman strength, it was like the difference between a small sheep and a giant bear.
Blue electric arcs bloomed in the air, gushing out from Shirley’s wings, turning into lightning. Along with the earth-shaking sound of thunder, the pirates were struck by giant lightning bolts, instantly turning into charred bodies. Even more shocking were the giant craters left by the lightning bolts.
“Monster, run, run!”
The miracle power shown by Shirley made these pirates who had never seen the world think that god wrath had descended. They immediately lost all courage and fled for their lives.
Bai Luo was also very curious. He couldn’t help but ask Shirley.
“Since when could you release lightning?”
“After breaking through the previous storm, Shirley felt like she had acquired new abilities. I can also do this.”
The moment Shirley finished speaking, she raised her forelimbs in the air,
“Get out of my way!”
Along her neighing, the originally calm air began to flow, becoming faster and more intense at a rapid speed.
A tornado swept the surrounding pirates, along with their houses, into the sky.
Shirley actually acquired an AOE skill, Bai Luo was very surprised,
“How many times can you release it?”
“As many as you want, master!”
The energy of miracle creatures is infinite, and they can fight endlessly without any side effects, just like a perpetual motion machine.
The only difference lies in their output limits.
Just like Shirley before, she could only release wind blades. Although it could be released indefinitely, its attack range is too small.
And now, perhaps because of breaking through that terrifying storm, Shirley’s miracle power has evolved, reaching a new level.
She gained the power to control storms and lightning, greatly increasing Shirley’s destructive power.
Sure enough, as the black book said, riding her, Bai Luo would be invincible on the battlefield.
“What are you waiting for!”
Bai Luo patted Shirley’s fluffy crystal-like mane and said with a smile,
“Kill them all!”
Bai Luo originally thought that they might need the power of two miracles to flawlessly settle this battle, but he now found that there’s no need for Lilith to act, they are more than enough.
“As you command!”
As a result, a terrifying storm along with the endless sound of thunder enveloped this part of the island.
Such frequent attacks, endless storms, and thunder aggravated the panic in the hearts of the pirates.
It wasn’t just the pirates, even the Ardennes were stunned.
Using powerful spells to sweep mobs, this kind of happiness can only be enjoyed by mages, it’s incomprehensible to warriors.
At this moment, Bai Luo, in the eyes of the pirates, was no different from a demon.
He rode the majestic Pegasus, released thunder, controlled storms, and took the lives of a large number of pirates with ease.
“All gather, all gather!!”
“Shield, hold up your shield!”
“Retreat into the forest, all retreat into the forest!”
When Bai Luo heard this order, he followed the sound source and immediately found Mondo. This guy is still alive.
Bai Luo stopped Shirley who was going to kill Mundo with lightning. He took off the spear hanging on her side and said,
“As the leader, it’s shameful that I have no kill under my record, so I’ll take care of this.”
“Block it, block it all!”
Mundo didn’t know that he was targeted. Although he was frightened, he still made the best judgment at this critical juncture.
However, in the next moment, a spear pierced through Mondo who was running, nailing him to the ground, leaving his body swaying in the air.
The funny thing is that he didn’t know who their enemy was until his death…
