A Mistaken Marriage Match 4; The Pirate’s Daughter
Volume I Chapter 4 Cruel Pirates
The violent storm clouds engulfed the sky, dark clouds swallowed everything over head and the remaining sun rays was shrouded by the clouds, sky muddled the earth's color, only this short quarter of an hour, two black ships already pursued them surrounding the small fishing boat in between. The black ships were twice bigger than the fishing boat, with the towering giant black sails, fluttering in the wind, hunting, ready to swallow the fishing boat like prey, the black sails have an image printed on it, a red blood wolf with sharp fangs and vicious narrow eyes, revealing a strong aura of hostility.
Su Su was used to see all kinds of hideous animal emblems, she naturally did not fear any of them. Her heart was startled simply because the two ships turned up to be warships!
More than 30 meters long boat with six forts on each side perhaps aimed at the small fishing vessel, she discovered however that forts were covered and not ready for engagement. Su Su was not mistaken that these were real warships, more surprising was the so called pirates already has such combat power? Or was it possible they were not ordinary robbing pirates? They robbed such a small fishing boats, for what reason?
Su Su has many questions in her mind, suppositions were running through her head with flashing speed when a group of shadows suddenly leaped from more than 3 meters away on the ship, and heavily fell on top of the deck.
It was a sturdy man, with a broadsword in his hand, he was a huzi* , in addition to a pair of ominous light in his eyes, one can barely see his appearance because his face was fully covered with beard, behind him were seven or eight men carrying single edge swords who jumped also on the deck. The bewildered crew panicked even more, running and hiding, the deck turned to chaos again.
*Huzi – Chinese colloquial term for bearded bandit. Let’s call him that until we figure out his real name. ***Lao-tze was a Chinese Founder of Taoism or called the Father of Taoism, who have written the sacred book of Daoism , however in this case it was an arrogant way of calling himself father.
"Mother f*@%#r do not run, your Lao-tze's** eyes are getting dizzy! Count yourself lucky if Lao-tze do not kill people today. Behave yourself, if you do not want to be hit by my sword!" My goodness, his madness and voice was full of energy! Accompanied by his shouting was speeding cold light as he was brandishing his sword and the frightening effect was extremely remarkable, the crews finally did not dare to run all over the place again, all obediently squats down and did not even dare to breathe.
Hearing this man clamoring not to kill people, Su Su’s heart that was full of apprehension has been relieved a little, also obediently squat, shrinking inside the group of men, she calmly observed.
The crews were placed to bow position, the huzi have swept a glance to a dozen people bitterly cursed," Mother f*@%#r ,we pursued most of the day, only few people?"
At this time, from the other pirate ship also jumped several more people, the huzi yelled, "Search for Lao-tze."Several sturdy men with swords in their hands crashed into the cabin immediately.
Afterwards, several more men jumped down the fishing boat, Su Su found a man dressed in dark blue, he looks older but very tall, holding in his hand an eight-foot silver gun, standing quietly on the bow. His posture was upright, he has long breathing which means his martial arts skill was certainly strong. Sensing that he stood not far from her place, Su Su bowed slightly and shrunk back, thin body was almost completely hidden behind Yu Si.
Less than a quarter of an hour time, several men who crashed in the cabin a moment ago marched out with seven to eight crews, bearded bandit grunted, kicked a crew nearest his leg, cursed loudly, " hiding, how do you hide, you thought could hide from Lao-tze’s 'paper mulberry eye'."*
* yan chu -after searching the meaning of mulberry eye how could there be such a thing but after googling viola! this what came out it could mean an evil eye, radiating eyes or sweeping eyes.
"Just this, all you have? The huzi was still very dissatisfied.
"Can’t it be."
Heard nearby was someone taking a long relaxing breath resembling a sigh, Su Su’s eyelids flickered swiftly and looked up and found Yu Si face showed delighted look. Su Su frowned and in anxious whisper, "Yu Si put your head down."
"Search again. Every corner of the cabin should be turned over." Just right when she spoke, a callous male voice gave the command.
It was the man with a silver gun?! Su Su knew, this time things might turn for the worst, her heart was apprehensive but kept her head bowed constantly.
"Yes." Several people behind the man with the silver gun dashed into the cabin the second time, from the cabin a noisy sound can be heard, this time it was longer than previous search.
“Senior brother ALeng , we found two!"Pirate’s excited sound resounds, Su Su’s heart froze. She slightly lifted her eye to examine the scene, the Qin siblings were hiding in the narrow small box for long period of time, this moment they have pale dispirited look, sluggish and were being towed by two pirates as they were walking, particularly Qin Yin, he was very close to passing out.
Su Su’s rapidly swept the pirates periphery with one eye , she saw their eyes were lit up, the next moment she heard the bearded bandit made a shouted with a very loud voice, "The day to kill is on this fishing boat, unexpectedly you have a young married woman!" The bearded bandit dreadful sound was clamoring, grabbing a pliable Qin Qian recklessly devoid of conscience.
"Release me!" She never received such humiliation before and Qin Qian's pale face instantaneously flushed, regardless of her status both hands were tightly held, she struggles horribly as if she doesn't fear death.
“What are you doing, let her go!” Yu Si loved Qin Qian for so many years, seeing her treated with scorn, he wished to stand and dart over to the bearded bandit.
“Seeking your death!” He just finished talking then saw the hand of the huzi with a broadsword fell, a head rolled down and the blood poured out and scattered all over the deck, the tall body of Yu Si fell heavily smashing the ground. His head was rolling and eyes wide open in the middle of the deck, heavy scent of blood instantly engulfed the whole boat.
Crews on the scene were shocked and even forgot to breathe for a time. There was a death-like silence on the deck; the only sound that one can be heard was the howling of the wind with the bloody whiff mingled with the blood hitting the face and the hissing sound from the blood spurting out, the scene was gripping the mind and fear spreads all over the chest making breathing difficult.
Someone finally cannot bear the terrifying horror, the shout and the roar, awakened the crowd but also let that fear sank deeper into the heart. Many crew members were not even squatting but lying directly on the ground.
Su Su's eyes glanced with sinister look, from her infancy to maturity she followed her parent's side; she has already seen blood, broken body bleeding or even death. There was nothing she has not seen but just in front of this incident, she remained profoundly shocked and in disbelief that just by the waved of the hand, according to their wish simply claimed human’s life. She came to know with deep awareness that people doesn’t value human life the same, human life to these bandits were no different from a sea grass.
"Everyone close your mouth before Lao-tze or again without exception you will be chopped." As he was talking, the huzi carried Qin Yan like a chicken and flings him conveniently. Qin Yan thin and small body fell rapidly among the crews.
Su Su has already anticipated what the bearded bandit wanted to do with Qin Yan, after flinging him during his landing she threw herself to catch the falling Qin Yan with her own body, with her hand supporting his neck and another on the waist and rolled together to the side until they stopped. For Su Su this kind of movement had used up a lot of her strength now it appeared that the two people that fell look miserable, but actually they were not injured at all.
"Eldest brother Yu ….Qin Yan!" just a moment ago she saw Yu Si was decapitated, the next quarter then she saw her own younger brother also being thrown like sandbag now losing her restraint, Qin Qian losing her insanity maliciously bite the hand that was stroking under her cheeks hand, with hate and fear, she bit him until she was exhausted and has tasted the blood . Afterwards, the scene was pitiful, she struck him with all her strength but the bearded bandit just scowled in exchanged. The next quarter he then laughed like crazy and arrogantly gotten up, "Bite me? Lao-tze like a woman who has flavor of fierceness." He was saying this unexpectedly in front of many people, he pushed Qin Qian to the ground then pressed his big body afterwards.
“Sister … …” from Yu Si’s tragic death, he returned to his senses, Qin Yan, seeing his sister being humiliated, he struggle to stand up.
"Do not move." Su Su's hand presses in the Qin Yan’s acupuncture points on the shoulder and another hand quickly pressed his neck, touching the mute point,.
Qin Yan refused to listen, still desperately wants to help Qin Qian but regardless how much he struggled, his body cannot move, and not only that in his throat as if something was blocked, a sound does not come out.
How Su Su feel right now was not much better than him, she couldn’t wait for a sword to slay this bearded bandit, but now, she cannot act rashly because of the crew's life must be preserved, but Qin Qian … … would she like to see her humiliated?
No way!Hmm, I think I did not write anything … ….Investigate something, well, actually the problem was how to finally cross over to the pirate's lair. How to manage …
