The White Blade and the old man simultaneously looked upward and saw that strange distortions and cracks had appeared on the entire ceiling. The cracks spread in all directions and suddenly together with the chandelier above collapsed and fell down.
“What’s going on?”
Everyone present froze but White Blade reacted very quickly. Raising his sword, he split the ceiling that was falling down into two halves.
The ceiling fell down about two meters away, and the sunlight shone in from the hole above, making the somewhat dark room brighter.
“Interesting, Kingdom of Smale and pirates have made a deal, but regrettably, your deal most likely won’t get to finish.”
Ross’s voice spread throughout the room from the hole.
Everyone saw a figure wearing a fur hat, one hand pressing down on the fur hat on his head, jumped down from the hole, and fell lightly above the ruins.
“Audacious, who are you?”
The crowd present was startled. They showed a vigilant and fierce expression while staring at Ross, who had suddenly entered.
The first thought of the old man wearing the ceremonial hat was that Capone Mafia has found their secret deal and suddenly sneaked in, but when he saw Ross’ appearance, his pupil immediately shrank.
“You are… Ghost Hand Ross!”
In addition to the White Blade pirates, they also tried to contact the Ghost Hand pirates in private, but because they could not find any contact information, they finally gave up on them.
He had contacted White Blade pirates with great difficulty. He didn’t expect for the Ghost Hand Pirates’ Captain Ghost Hand Ross to suddenly rush in uninvited.
“Ghost hand, Ross.”
White Blade pirate’s Captain White Blade, looked at Ross standing on the ruins, his brow slightly wrinkled and gradually revealed a dangerous look.
The name Ghost Hand Ross has spread throughout the West Blue region in recent months. Whether it is a pirate or criminal organization or Marines, he has annihilated all of them. He is a terrifying person who comes after powerful people purely for hunting.
“Are you here for me?”
White Blade’s fingers gripped the hilt of his sword and asked Ross in a sinking voice.
Ghost Hand Ross suddenly appeared here, he does not think that Ross came here to play. By Ross’s behavior, it appears that he is here for him.
Ross nodded and calmly answered White Blade’s question and slowly came down from the destroyed ceiling ruins and then headed towards him.
White Blade’s subordinates were completely subdued by the imposing manner that Ghost Hand Ross, this given name brings. As for the members of the criminal organization of the Kingdom of Smale, they were also shaking.
Looking at Ross approaching, White Blade’s face gradually turned gloomy. Besides solemn expression in his eyes, they also had a hint of killing intent and anger.
He is a big pirate with a bounty of 35 million Berries. He has been sailing in the sea for several years, but Ross name had just become famous in the past two months. For Ross to daring to look for him, he will show him who is the prey!
“Flowing blade, behead evil!”
White Blade held the hilt of his sword and fiercely shouted. He suddenly unsheathed the sword in his hand, stepped forward, and chopped sideways towards Ross, cleaving Ross from the left abdomen to the right shoulder.
The sword seems to have cleaved Ross into two halves, but at the moment he chopped out, White Blade inwardly shouted. Not good! Because he clearly felt that his sword hit nothing!
Sure enough, in the next moment, from a position very close to him, a fist came towards him.
At this moment of life and death, he desperately turned around and defend with his sword. When the fist wind attacked over, he blocked it with the point of the sword.
After the fist wind fiercely fell down, the sword in his hand produced a ‘kāchā’ sound, and suddenly distorted and broke. Together with the sword his arms, his arm also distorted into broken bones and flesh.
White Blade screamed and covered his badly mangled arm. He stepped hard on the floor, retreating at full speed without the slightest bit of hesitation, trying to escape by knocking and breaking wall at his back.
But before he could hit the wall, Ross’s figure flashed like a phantom and swept the delicate blade clenched in his hand towards him.
White Blade’s head accompanied by blood soared in the sky. His face had disbelief written on his face. He didn’t dare believe that he could only make two moves before he was defeated and killed by Ross.
“Phantom image… Is this his ability? Damn, his movements should have made a sound, why didn’t I discover it earlier…”
White Blade sunk into darkness and completely lost consciousness.
At the same time, a familiar system’s sound resounded beside his ear.
“35 million Berries bounty, Pirate Captain White Blade has been hunted.
Reward obtained, 60 Talent Proficiency points, and 1 Free Talent Point.”
Listening to the sound coming beside his ear, Ross calmly looked at White Blade’s body that had fallen down in a pool of blood, and slowly straightened.
With his current strength, even if White Blade can detect that he has distorted the light and created an illusory image similar to reflection in water, he will still not be his opponent.
He used Light Distortion ability just so that he can quickly finish the fight.
Because the speed of this battle is too fast, only one move decided the winner, two moves have decided the life and death, that most of the people present weren’t even able to react.
“Lie, its a lie, right? How can boss lose in one move…”
White Blade pirates looked at the corpse of the fallen White Blade, and revealed incredulous look in their eyes. Their eyes also contained shock and fear.
The black ceremonial hat wearing old man from the criminal organization of the Kingdom of Smale was also a bit shocked. He didn’t expect Ross’s strength to be more fierce than the rumors. The 35 million Berries White Blade was defeated so quickly!
To their horror.
Ross raised his head up and calmly looked at White Blade’s subordinates. He didn’t want to let these people go. His body flashed and then he waved his sword to get rid of them.
Sha! Sha! Sha!
The pirates wanted to escape, but Ross was using Soru, there is no chance for them to escape. They were all killed.
Killing the last pirate, Ross stopped. With the Blade Happy Spring in his hand which was dripping with blood, he turned to the criminal organization members of the Kingdom of Smale.
The black ceremonial hat wearing old man has cold sweat dripping down on his forehead and he barely maintained his calm as he said, “The strength of Captain Ross is stronger than rumors. It is a great honor to be able to see it with my own eyes.”
The scene was quiet.
Seeing that Ross still stood there and did not move, but he also did not attack them so the old man paused and carefully continued:
“I don’t know if Captain Ross would like to make a deal with us. We just need you to destroy Capone Mafia’s Underground power in our Kingdom of Smale. We are willing to pay 50 million Berries.”
Ross stood there, watching the black ceremonial hat wearing old man calmly, letting the blood on the sword’s tip drop on the exquisite woolen blanket on the ground.
He didn’t spoke, so no one present dared to speak. There were only a few faintly discernible sounds around them, extremely low, but the unsteady breathing sound echoed in the surrounding.
Starting with the Flo pirates. So far, not counting the White Blade pirates, Ross had already annihilated five pirate groups. These five pirate groups have some treasures, all of which add up to around 20 million Berries.
White Blade pirates ship should also have some. If I can add 50 million Berries on top, there will be about 80 million Berries.
Flo pirates ship is transportation means for only the initial stages to him. He still needs a more powerful and faster ship. The 50 million Berries should be enough for him to find a boatman to build a new ship.
There is some conflict between Capone Mafia and him that cannot be resolved.
Ross was pondering in his heart. Just as he was about to make a decision, Robin suddenly came in from outside and interrupted his thoughts.
“The situation has changed. We are surrounded by people from Capone Mafia!”
Robin’s tone was a little grave as she said to Ross.
Ross was a little surprised. He glanced at the black ceremonial hat wearing old man and found that he was astonished. It seemed that he did not expect Capone Mafia to surround him.
Ross walked to the window and raised the corner of the curtain. He glanced outside and saw that the street outside was completely blocked. There were hundreds of Capone Mafia members who had surrounded this place completely.
The weapons held in the hands of the members of the Capone Mafia were not only the guns, but they also carried a lot of massive portable artillery!
A war-like scene.
Ross’s gaze changed slightly. His eyes swept through the members of Capone Mafia, and soon fell on a young figure holding a cigar in his mouth who was standing in front of the crowd.
“That man is… Capone Bege?”
