Chapter 5: Insane Duel
Translated by: Chua
Edited by: I and Elkassar
Five metres, three metres, two metres! The Jamaican calculated the distance in his heart, his breathing was heavy and his eyes bloodshot. From the duel with Gates, he concluded that this person from the East had tremendous explosive powers, it he was able to dodge and thereby counterattack, then the chances of victory would greatly increase!
As expected, Sheyan really burst forward, raising his arms to cover his face, like a huge block smashing forward, there was completely no trace of restraint. In this moment, Waliwalika felt the rushing wind against him and felt suffocated!
That crucial moment, he must retreat, he could only retreat!
While retreating, Waliwalika had already decided on his counterattack move. Him boldly standing up to take revenge for his brother was not purely impulsiveness. In this short span, his 7 different counterattacking measures had already started forming up in his mind.
However, Sheyan did not commit any further actions as he charged forward stubbornly like a raging bull merely trying to finish off his enemy with a sheer forceful collision!
Waliwalika strangely croaked, with one move transferred the hatchet to his right hand, and swiftly chop down with it. Yet, Sheyan very composedly raised his left arm! The nearby pirates all gasped in astonishment. Waliwalika had the strongest arm strength amongst them, once during a battle, he even split open a british lieutenant’s helmet! In their eyes, Sheyan would end up with a dismembered left arm, following that as half of his body will be chopped into half.
A glimmer of radiance flashed in the air!
As the two were about to exchange blows, an explosive blinding light emitted from Sheyan’s left arm as a huge mysterious metallic arm emerged! This was the weapon obtained from the terminator world: Colbalt steel exoskeleton (Left arm)!
As the hatchet’s blade chopped on it, sparks emerged however there were no injuries. After deflecting the hatchet, Sheyan extended himself and charged forward to Waliwalika’s front, as he looked like he was about to deal a fatal blow with his mysterious weapon!
Waliwalika was blown slight backwards upon the impact, however, as he staggered a few steps back he realized he had already been forced to the side of the ship! He actually was unconsciously forced into the corner amidst the chaos of battle! If he wanted to escape his perilous situation, he must shift two steps away urgently. Currently, the gap between the two were not even 2 metres, with both Sheyan’s arms covering his face, he leaked out a vulnerable spot. Waliwalika’s gaze flickered as he took a step back with his left leg and whipped out his right leg in an upper kick manner.
Blood travels in the body at an average of 6894 km daily, at this time Waliwalika was breathing deeply and his blood was rushing 10 times faster than the average speed. Although his kick looked lacking, but actually contain a tremendous tearing strength. Once the enemy’s strange metallic arm strike, his kick would allow him to propel to the side and escape his disadvantageous situation!
A person’s rib area was considerably weak, once the rib splintered it would threaten the vital organs like the liver, lungs etc. That was where there’s such a thing as the rib cartilage. Waliwalika’s one kick would rescue him from the clutches of his opponent, and gave him a chance to escape. If he had not block and escape, he would suffer a huge risk of being closed in bombarded by the enemy.
“Peng!” Waliwalika’s eyes popped wide open! This person unexpedly took the full force of the kick directly to his weak rib cartilage! However, a frightening pain transmitted from his leg as though he had just stuck a piece of metal board! Did he really kick onto the opponent’s rib cartilage? Therefore, the projected recoil from the impact did not happen as he was unable to borrow the opposing force to escape, this was the only fatal flaw in his plan!
In this sort of intense duel, a flaw would mean death.
The blood lusted looking Sheyan utilized a mere 5 seconds to turn this Jamaican into a dead man. He used his strange metallic arm, in one swift blow he monstrously pulled out Waliwalika’s throat from his neck. The cringing sounds of the shattering bones echoed through the deck, as the pirates could only cower in horror.
Following that was Sheyan’s malicious knee, heavily smashing against Waliwalika’s crotch awfully destroying that part of Waliwalika.
Before Waliwalika’s heavy body had the time to collapse, Sheyan had already coiled around his back, gripping onto the ordinary dagger he got from Gates he slashed across his throat. Blood immediately spurted out, as this Jamaican’s tall figure tumbled and fell abroad into the sea. Disrupting the reflection of the sunset with a huge splash, as it slowly submerged into the sea with small bubbles foamed up from his throat and slowly dissipated.
Sheyan then coughed modestly, licking off the blood from his middle finger, raising his brows he purposely made a weird pose as if emulating a mysterious eastern martial artist. After these, he then looked towards the audience, coldly continuing to say:
The entire place fell into a deathly silence, Sheyan knew that his viciousness had achieved great effects. Taking a few much needed breaths he casually observed the notification from his nightmare imprint he got after killing Waliwalika:
“Your throat slash dealt a total of 33 points of damage to Waliwalika, opponent falls into a state of near death…. You have killed the opponent.”
“The voodoo curse (Black serpent’s bite lvl1) has been dispelled. Your basic attribute: Spirit has been recovered to normal.”
“You have acquired a black pin (Grey).”
“Black pin (Grey): This is a key classification item, normally used in various witchcraft/ magic to weaken the enemy. After using, you have 50% chance of attaining a lowest grade black magic/ witchcraft scroll, and a 50% chance of acquiring a random item. Do you want to activate this item. Yes / No?”
Sheyan understood that if this newly acquired “Black pin” produced a scroll, it would most likely contain the curse that Waliwalika used: Black Serpent’s Bite. He looked at his mere 5 points of spirit and then without deliberating selected ‘No’.
Presently, Sheyan had already accepted two duels – two victories, two dead opponents! Duels normally concluded within a minute, in that short time frame, his fearsome battle capabilities/ vicious nature/ Eastern mysteries had carved a deep impression on all the present pirates. Logically speaking, there should still be a third round of test, however, the atmosphere was frozen. Of course, this did not mean that no one onboard was incapable of contesting against Sheyan, they just felt like it was not worth the effort or risk.
To these pirates, killing Sheyan would only merit them with 2-3 Pounds, such low valuation was not enough to invoke their interest in dealing with this mysterious and cruel Easterner.
A clear and distinct applause broke the awkward frozen atmosphere, and this applause came from above. Along with it was a steady and cold laughter. This laughter was precise, stubborn yet steady just like an alarm.
“The third test is hereby cancelled! Welcome the mysterious Easterner Seaman Yan onboard the Bell and Mug!.”
Sheyan turned his head around, immediately he could see a male walking out of the captain’s room, that was the future pirate lord Ammand! He had high cheekbones and a crooked nose giving one a first impression: A fierce tyrant with keen vision! Very naturally, Ammand had noticed that the commotion brought about by his chief official had caused much harm to the morale of the ship, therefore, he personally made an appearance to put an end to this unhealthy deathly atmosphere.
As Ammand was speaking, Sheyan had already received the relevant notifications:
“Main mission: The Busy Man completed.”
“You acquired 100 utility points”
“You received a new main mission: Gain Prominence.”
“Mission summary: Promote your reputation across the Caribbean pirates.”
“Mission description: The pirates of the Caribbeans are bunch of reverential people. No matter how you do it, whether by good or evil methods if you can leave a deep impression in them, this will increase their respect for you.”
“Mission pointers: After accepting this mission, your reputation score will be activated in this Pirates of the Caribbean setting, current score of 24/1000.”
“Mission pointers: Pirates are all impatient bastards, you have a week to establish yourself.”
“Mission pointer: The higher your reputation in the pirate world, the better your rewards will be.”
You have succeeded in becoming a Bell and Mug crew member.”
“Bell and Mug is classified as a large pirate warship.”
“You triggered a side mission: Get close to a legend.”
“Mission summary: Ascend into the (Black Pearl/ Flying Dutchman/ Queen Anne’s Revenge/ HMS Victory) any random deck, and become their crew member.”
“Mission pointer: Although these few legendary pirate ships/ marine ships are currently lacking in manpower, they would rather have nothing than weaklings, thus, they would not easily accept people without a solid reputation. Please increase your reputation in the pirate world first.”
“Mission pointer: After the rum festival, these 4 ships would temporarily not set sail, however, they will only anchor for a period of one week.”
(Note: HMS Victory is the only ship that can catch up to the Black Pearl, it has a fast speed, pointed tip and flat tail, it belongs to the Royal Navy of the English empire. The captain is James Norrington, the first marriage candidate to Elizabeth. In the second series, he ingeniously captured the heart of Davy Jones. The ship’s firepower is extremely terrifying.
