A Massive Tragedy (2)

The officer on the receiving end of the news was not entirely convinced. “Their Lord? Is it the imposter that everyone has been blabbering about? How did you manage to capture her so easily?”
“It is true. That was how the mermaids addressed her. We noticed that she seemed to have mastered some modern aspects of Kung Fu. She is also good with guns.”
“Rotate the camera toward her. I need to see her through the screen.”
Seconds later, the big screen in the cabin displayed the three mermaids and Gu Xijiu.
The officer’s eyes lingered a little longer on Gu Xijiu’s face as if studying an object. A moment later, an evil grin appeared on his face. “I cannot tell how capable she is, but she is stunning! I am aroused. Send her here quickly! I need to take a better look at her. If I am happy with the girl, I will reward all of you!”
The soldiers all went back to their respective positions, and the pilots started to maneuver the ship.
From the outside, any passerby could easily notice the drastic change in the ship’s appearance. In just a few clicks, its entire exterior seemed to have transformed into something completely different than before. Soon, the ship rose into the air and flew swiftly towards the west.
As the ship was large and well-balanced, it did not take long for it to travel steadily. Once it did, the injured soldiers finally had the opportunity to treat their wounds. They could not stop cursing at the unpleasant experience. To make matters worse, all of their injuries were caused by their own guns.
Out of frustration, one of them lashed out, “The woman moves incredibly fast! How did she know how to use our guns so precisely? I have not been hurt in a while, especially from a woman!”
“Yes, if she had not seized our guns, there was no way that she could hurt us. All our uniforms have the ability to shield us against all sorts of spells and magic. It is only the high-beam from these guns that can penetrate through our protective clothing.”
“All right. All right. At least we have got her in our hands now. The wounds are part and parcel of the achievement. All of us will be rewarded at the end of the day.”
“Why did you think the officer was asking for her specifically? Is he going to send her away? The woman is the Lord that everyone has been talking about. We should actually send her to the admiral.”
“Our officer is always attracted to beautiful ladies. We have been here for around a year, and he has slept with a different girl every night. The girl is too beautiful for him to give away without sleeping with her first. Not everyone gets to sleep with a Lord, you know. Haha!”
Their conversation had taken a sharp, perverted turn. Meanwhile, agust of wind flurried by the side of one of the soldiers all of a sudden and caught his attention. It was almost as if he could smell the sea.The injured man trembled a little and looked at his fellow comrade, aghast.
“Is this place normally ventilated?”
“That’s impossible! The cabin is sealed. There is no room for any wind to enter.”
“I could clearly feel the air flowing by just a second ago. Could there be a ghost in our vessel?”
“A ghost? Nonsense. I am a firm believer in the laws of physics and science. I never take these mythical things into account.”
“It is hard to say. Many strange things exist in this world that is beyond explanation, just like their magic. I can somehow tell that their spells are as powerful as our guns even though they are rather odd.”
“How odd can they be when they are all enslaved? We have thoroughly beaten them.”
“Actually, those that we have encountered thus far are the ones with the weakest spiritual power. You know, their spiritual power is actually categorized into different levels. The highest is level nine, and yet all that we have found are only at level four. The stronger ones are all gathered at a specific place. The admiral has been trying to tear the place down, and it seems like the fight will have to take some more time. We have suffered a great loss, too. Many lives lost on our part.”
“I really do not know what the admiral is thinking. The whole war can be ended with an antimatter bomb. All of them will be gone in an instant. Why should we waste our lives and resources in this endless fight?”
