Chapter 648: Eve of Departure
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Flames blazed under the pitch-black night sky . Bloody corpses laid flat in the dark, narrow corridor . Rhode lifted his head and gazed in satisfaction at the endless black field . He snapped his fingers .
The gloomy scenery distorted and vanished like a painting tainted with flowing water . The boundless white space reemerged and slowly disappeared in golden rays . Shortly after, the chilly night breeze and shining, clean moonlight dispersed the shadows above everyone . No one who stood before Rhode could hold on any longer . Carefree people like Joey flopped down on the snowfield and panted for air desperately .
“Well done . ”
Rhode nodded in fulfillment at the sight of the exhausted group . After experiencing high intensity training sessions, they finally figured out the way of coordination . However, the training sessions were indeed a heavy burden for the natives . Not only Joey, but even the mature and steady Randolf, Marfa, and Sol were also drenched in sweat . The mercenaries and Half-Demons behind them discussed the successes and failures in the simulated battle . A delightful glint flashed in Rhode’s eyes because this was what he wished to see . In fact, it was necessary for him to raise the difficulty of the training sessions and allow the mercenaries and Half-Demons to know one another better . After all, people in the same plight would empathize with others in the same predicament and grow closer . No matter the veteran mercenaries or the newly joined Half-Demons, they were all drilled miserably in his special training . As a team that required trust, the tight bonds with one another was extremely crucial .
“That’s all for the training today . You guys can head back for a rest . Tomorrow, we will head to the Ice Field and get rid of the annoying Orcs . It will also be a great chance to test our combat capability . Dismiss . ”
Joey raised his arms and cheered loudly . Then, he jumped up to his feet and revealed a charming smile at a young lady clad in a Ranger attire .
“Miss Betty, do you have time today? Can I treat you to a drink? Just one…”
“Hey, Joey, who says you can approach my girl?”
Randolf chided in a playful tone while Joey shrugged and grimaced . “Randolf, when did Betty become yours? You two aren’t married yet . Heh…”
The fatigue mercenaries burst into laughter at their comical bickering . As Rhode turned around and intended to leave, Lize’s voice held him back .
“Ah, Mr . Rhode, please wait for a moment…”
“Is anything the matter, Lize?”
Rhode came to a halt and turned back to find Lize scuttling toward him . Although Lize’s Cleric team didn’t carry as much responsibility as the others in this tactic, they had also put in a lot of strength . Her face blushed and sweat beads filled her forehead . She stalled abruptly and rubbed the hems of her robe nervously . After a few moments, she sucked in a deep breath and looked at Rhode in his eyes .
“I-It’s like this, Mr . Rhode… Are… you… free tonight? I… I want to treat you to some tea…”
Rhode was astonished, but he quickly understood the meaning behind those words . He nodded without hesitation .
“Of course, Lize . ”
The sky darkened .
The bustling Land of Atonement had quietened drastically, where only the clamor of the mercenaries could be heard from the pubs in the vicinity . Rhode strode along the corridor of the fortress and sensed the tranquil atmosphere before him with a smile . They would be heading into the Ice Field the next day and most of the mercenaries had returned for their rest . At the moment, the Ocean Elves were cleaning up the hall and corridor . Under the radiance of the candle flames, the fortress appeared seemingly serene and peaceful .
Rhode came to a halt and tidied the creases on his clothes before knocking on the door . Shortly after, Lize’s voice responded .
“P-Please come in . ”
Rhode pushed the room door open . Then, he spotted the young lady seated by the table .
Lize looked very different . She was no longer clad in the usual plain robe and had put on a white, silky muslin dress instead . Her fair, delicate skin revealed a faint layer of blush under the candle flames .
“Ah, Mr . Rhode…”
She stood to her feet and lowered her head shyly . She shrunk back a little and gazed at the teapot and teacups as though avoiding his gaze . Rhode entered the room slowly . His eyes had locked on to the young lady before him . Lize’s expression blushed even more and appeared exceptionally adorable .
How amusing .
Rhode smiled inwardly and lifted Lize’s chin to force her to look into his eyes . She instinctively tried to turn away to avoid his stare, but he didn’t grant her wish . Lize felt increasingly uneasy . Her eyes wandered and her chest pumped up as she breathed heavily . However, Rhode seemed to have become rather slow in his reactions as though he didn’t notice her nervousness .
“Where’s the tea?”
Lize was taken aback as though she couldn’t figure out what Rhode was talking about .
“Didn’t you want to treat me to some tea?”
“Ah, right, yes… Yes…”
Lize appeared as though she had just woken up from her dream . She nodded and lifted the teapot to pour a cup of tea with shivering hands .
“Mr . Rhode… P-Please enjoy . This is a first-rate black tea . I’m sure you’ll like it…”
Rhode maintained his poker face . He looked into Lize’s eyes and savored the fragrant tea .
“Yes, it tastes great, Lize . Your temaking skills have improved again . ”
“Thanks for your compliment, Mr . Rhode…”
“But… It’s boring to just drink tea . I do want to taste some dessert . ”
Lize looked dazedly . But before she reacted, Rhode’s face leaned in to hers abruptly—he kissed her lips .
Lize resisted instinctively and his tongue slithered in and pried open her mouth to tangle with her tongue before she could even speak . Lize widened her eyes . Her eyes wandered in a blur and she softly fell into his embrace .
After a few moments, they separated slowly and the silver thread of saliva between their lips dripped, which went to show how strong their passion was . Rhode extended his hand and stroked her soft cheek, leaving her trembling as though she was electrocuted . Out of a sudden, an aromatic scent assailed Rhode’s nostrils and he felt two soft presences pushing against his back . Shortly after, Marlene’s voice filled the room .
“Lize, didn’t I say you couldn’t escape?”
“Marlene? Why are you here?”
Rhode turned back and spotted Marlene’s grin .
“Because this was decided by Lize and I, Rhode . ”
Marlene revealed a witty smile .
“Since you’ve bedded both Lize and I… we would like to know if you favor one and discriminate against the other . This is our challenge for you . Rhode, I’ve been worried that you would treat the other coldly after you’ve satisfied one . ”
Rhode narrowed his eyes and took a few steps back to gaze at Marlene who had gone to Lize’s side .
“A challenge for me?”
“That’s right, Rhode . Do you accept it?”
A man wouldn’t reject it, of course .
The candle flames had been extinguished, leaving only the bright moonlight spilling through the windows and illuminating a hazy illusion in the room that enveloped the trio on bed .
Lize sat by the bed, pressed her hands on her cheeks and looked through the gap between her fingers with widened eyes . Marlene had leaned over to between Rhode’s legs and served his needs attentively . This was just a simple foreplay, but Lize had never felt this stimulated . Although she had also given her entirety to Rhode, she had never done this to him before . It could also be said that she didn’t know this could be done between a man and a woman . Not to mention, it was her close friend who was doing it .
Marlene actually put that huge thing into her mouth…
Lize stared in disbelief . Is it… delicious? It seems as though Marlene is savoring on a delicacy . But… Isn’t it filthy? Besides… Mr . Rhode seems really comfortable…
Lize lost her usual calmness on her beautiful face . On the contrary, Rhode shut his eyes and enjoyed the sensation along with Marlene’s actions . He gasped for breath slowly and Lize didn’t know why her body was burning .
She placed her right hand between her legs while her left hand caressed her chest uncontrollably . Her mind was crumbling and her hand movements were getting quicker .
Marlene’s actions stopped abruptly while Rhode let out a deep moan . At the same time, Lize felt as though something had broken through her constraints and the burning sensation spread throughout her limbs, leaving her mind in a complete blank .
Lize’s own stimulation had broken her final line of defense .
“Huhuhu, it seems that Lize has already prepared herself . ”
Marlene looked at Lize who had collapsed to the bed and let out a chuckle . Lize opened her eyes in bewilderment as though she was lost in a trance .
“Seems like this is too stimulating for Lize…”
Marlene said softly before lowering her head . Then, four light-pink, fleshy lips pressed against one another .
Lize shuddered abruptly . She opened her eyes wide and her throat moved up and down as though she was swallowing something . After a few moments, their lips separated and Marlene maintained her usual graceful attitude as she arranged her long hair .
“How was it, Lize? Was it good?”
Lize gazed blankly at her close friend who had a white, muddy liquid dripping down the corner of her mouth . Lize had as though lost her consciousness and was only answering instinctively . Marlene couldn’t help but display a smile before turning to Rhode .
“Alright then . Since I’ve enjoyed your first shot… I’ll leave Lize to you, Rhode . It seems that she’s prepared for you . I hope you won’t strain your waist again, okay?”
“Don’t worry, that was just an accident . ”
Rhode twitched his brows as he didn’t expect Lize to reveal the ugly truth to Marlene… Although there was a saying of ‘He that touches a pitch shall be defiled’, that was just an unlucky accident, after all . It seemed that he had to give Lize a little punishment .
Rhode lifted Lize’s legs as she lay paralyzed on the bed . She instinctively shook her head as though to resist and yet, she seemed anticipative . Rhode didn’t let her wait for too long . Almost in an instant, he struck from between her legs and began his violent thrusts .
Lize yelled out innately . She clutched the bedsheets and her dainty body twisted, but no one knew if she was escaping from his brutal penetrations or welcoming his advances . However, Rhode disregarded her defenseless resistance because a child who shot their mouth should be punished . He increased his thrusting speed and infiltrated her like a violent storm that swept her into endless crashing waves that shattered all rationality in her mind . In the end, the young lady screamed and struggled to wave her hands in the air . Then, she collapsed powerlessly on the bed as a burning gush of liquid blasted into her body and engulfed everything .
Marlene observed everything from the side and her breathing hastened . Although she had more intimate experiences with Rhode, this was the first time she had admired everything as a bystander . The gentle and adorable Lize had become this wild, hungry animal . There was an instant when Lize had totally forgotten about Marlene’s presence and innately craved for the arrival of pleasure from Rhode . Marlene had never thought of seeing Lize’s pure, innocent face becoming so seductive and womanly .
Could it be that… I look this way too?
Marlene felt her heart pounding hard and filled with nervousness and some anticipation…
Rhode heaved a sigh of relief and suddenly, he felt a fervent body rubbing and hugging him from the side .
“It’s my turn now, Rhode…”
