The Immortal Player Book 2 Chapter 120
Earlier that day, Pedro held a meeting with everyone in the CBCR. He told them his plan to annihilate all the monsters in the areas near the Naga Kingdom.
Of course, some raised their objection. But Pedro was firm in his decision and would proceed with his plan no matter what. Hence, everyone could only agree and follow in response.
He assigned Paul Solares and Beatrice to remain on the ship and lead the Naval Team. That way, the safety of the ship won't be jeopardized no matter what happens. At the same time, he ordered them to find the nearest area where the three sh.i.p.s could dock directly to the land.
Next, everyone in his group, except Sabrina, needed to farm their levels. So, he assigned Yojiro and Yuson to assist them and farm near the shore. At the same time, they were the ones tasked to guard their boat and were called the Support Team; ready to aid Pedro and his Attack Team in case he needed them.
Lastly, Pedro and his Attack Team would head to the Naga Kingdom and meet with the King. Although time was not on his side, He decided to head over to the Naga Kingdom for two main reasons.
First, He needed to tell the King not to send soldiers to the forest in order to avoid 'friendly fire'. He is afraid that those NPCs that would succ.u.mb to the power of his Demonic Eyes, in case they got into its range.
Second, He wanted to check 'some' hidden gems and treasures that may be hidding in the Naga Kingdom. Though he only had around ten golds left, that amount of money is still decent in any kingdoms in the Aquari Continent.
The Attack Team is composed of Pedro, Faunia, Mathew, Talia, and Sabrina. They compose the strongest team amongst the three.
Soon, the Attack Team and the Support Team arrived at the shore after separating ways with the Naval Team. Before Pedro and his Attack team depart, he gave everyone a few reminders.
"I'll leave everyone's safety in your hands, Yojiro, Yuson." He said, "Failure is not an option! Unlike your fight with Beatrice, losing would cost everyone's lives!"
"Yes, Contra Almirante!" Yojiro and Yuson shouted in salute.
Pedro nodded in satisfaction as he shifted his gaze towards Aldo. "Bro Aldo, I'll leave the girls in your care."
"You can count on me!" Aldo said confidently.
Without wasting another second, Pedro simply nodded in response and departed with his team.
~~~~The Captain's Team POV~~~~
As they ran towards the Naga Kingdom, Pedro's pen-knife went ahead together with Faunia.
The pen-knife danced magnificently with Faunia as if they were playing tag with the monsters that they stood in their way. Faunia tapped the monsters strong enough for Pedro's Pen-Knife to deliver the killing blow. And as his Pen-Knife went past through them, it sucked the blood out of the dead bodies of the monsters until it is dry.
Sabrina, Mathew, and Talia could only watch them in amazement from behind. That said, Pedro didn't pay much attention to them and was busy collecting the dried bodies of the dead monsters.
A few minutes later, several hundreds of meters away from the Naga Kingdom's gates, Faunia abruptly halted on her tracks. Her eyes widened in astonishment and her body trembled out of fear.
"Faunia, Why did you stop?" Pedro asked in confusion. Unfortunately, Faunia didn't respond to him.
This made Pedro frown in response and muttered, "I have a bad feeling about this..."
Soon, he caught up to Faunia. And at that moment, he felt a murderous aura that is strong enough to make him shiver out of fear. Reactively, his whole body was covered with black scales and was one step away from transforming into his dragon form.
Mathew, Talia, and Sabrina are astounded about what happened. At the same time, curiosity runs into their minds as to why Pedro and Faunia halted in their advance.
After a few seconds, they were able to catch up to Pedro and Faunia. At that moment, they felt a strong 'force' making their bodies feel weak and exhausted.
This made Sabrina activate her Demonic Eyes instantly whilst taking her pen-knives out. On the other hand, Mathew took a step back and grasped his [GeKnight Sword] while Talia hid behind him with also a sword in her hand.
"Is this a Special Field?" Mathew asked.
Special Fields are places inside a VR game that had 'extraordinary' cases like increased gravity and other debuffs. If Pedro didn't know any information about gods, goddesses, and demons from the world of Bearth Online, he would have thought the same thing with Mathew.
But because of the information that he learned from Faunia and his experience when he first met her, He had a hunch that the source of that murderous aura might be a god, goddess, or a demon. An NPC entity that is way scarier than the environment of Bearth Online, itself.
"No!" Pedro said, "But something way scarier than a Special Field... A divine entity!"
"Divine entity?" Talia asked out of astonishment.
"Yes!" Pedro said and explained, "Either a god, a goddess... or a demon!"
"A-A-A god?" Mathew asked in a trembling voice. His face went pale as he took another step backward, out of fear. "I-Isn't it too early for a god to appear in the game?"
Pedro burst into laughter after hearing Mathew's question. Then, he smirked to them and asked, "Too early? You've been traveling with one of them for days and you say that it is still too early for them to appear?"
Pedro's words confused the three even further, thus, rendering them speechless. On the other hand, Faunia simply stole a glance towards them as her skin changed into dark green scales.
"Stop arguing!" Faunia scolded in a cold manner and said, "Let's meet Elder Brother Death and his companion. I doubt that Elder Brother would go out of his way to this realm just for vacation!"
