“What is this place?” Gu Bailu didn’t need to raise her head to know that it was Feng Qingtian who had grabbed her.
“On a boat, in the middle of a storm.”
Gu Bailu’s stomach rolled with all the food she had for lunch.
Why was she so unlucky?
She was caught in a storm. She might be buried at sea before she saved Ah Luo.
The boat technology in this age wasn’t trustworthy at all!
“Human girl, why are you here? Are you alright?” Miyasi asked in concern from where he was controlling the helm.
Gu Bailu shook her head. “I’m fine, but what about the storm? Are we going to die?”
“This is the first time I’ve seen such a huge storm, too. We can only wait and see.” Miyasi seemed calm.
“Feng Qingtian, can we not teleport back?”
“Runes can’t be used here.”
Unconvinced, Gu Bailu took out her runes, and realized that they didn’t work at all.
What kind of s*ithole was this?
Gu Bailu looked out the cabin window, only to discover that the sail was still up.
Her face became pale.
“Lower the sail! Why is the sail still up?” she shouted and ran out.
They didn’t even know that the sail should be lowered in a storm. How did they have the courage to come out on the ocean?
She was stopped by both men at the door of the cabin.
Miyasi said, “Let me.”
Feng Qingtian didn’t say anything and simply went out.
Gu Bailu watched him worriedly and prayed for him. She was counting on him to send her back to Cloud Mirror Academy.
Feng Qingtian’s robe and hair fluttered in the wind like ribbons.
His every step was steady despite the hurricane.
The storm didn’t seem to affect him at all.
“How should I lower it?” Feng Qingtian asked next to the sail.
Miyasi knew that Feng Qingtian didn’t know how to do it, and he ran out as well. The two of them were busy for a while and finally lowered the sail.
Gu Bailu clutched the windowsill, feeling even more nauseated.
She hadn’t expected the runes to be ineffective here. Even if Gu Bailu were to sell her body, Feng Qingtian couldn’t send her to Cloud Mirror Academy.
Three men came in together. Qin Shou had been utterly ravaged by the wind.
“Let’s drop anchor and wait out the storm,” Gu Bailu said softly.
Feng Qingtian looked at her. “What are you doing here? Couldn’t you just stay behind?”
Gu Bailu saw that he was utterly steady on the boat, as if he had melded with it.
“I have urgent business. Is there any way you can get me back to Cloud Mirror Academy?”
Feng Qingtian was cold. “You’re in such a hurry to return to Cloud Mirror Academy?”
“Feng Qingtian, you must have a way. I have to go back, or Ah Luo will die. I must save her.”
“What happened?” Feng Qingtian frowned.
He knew that Gu Bailu cared for the maid.
“People of the Nether Land caught Ah Luo in order to catch me.”
Feng Qingtian looked surprised. “How did you piss off the Nether Land?”
The woman was truly a troublemaker. All the most powerful people on this continent probably knew who she was now.
That certainly wasn’t the best way to become famous.
“I think it’s unbelievable, too. I saved a woman who turned out to be a traitor of the Nether Land.” Gu Bailu was furious.
