Reincarnated With the Book of Knowledge - RWBK Chapter 36 Retreat When The Mission Is Complete
On the street, the lightning was raging, the bright light was blazing, and the terrifying electric heat ignited all the combustible things around it, the flames were raging, and the ground was scorched black.
At this time, the strength of the power of lightning can be said to have completely surpassed the power of Rhodes’ swordsmanship itself.
Squard is worthy of being one of the captains of the Whitebeard Pirates. He is physically strong and has an extremely powerful Busoshoku Haki. With his whole body hardened, he took this violent lightning head-on!
Under his Kenbunshoku Haki, the moment Rhodes take this move, Squard reacted, and the horizontal sword blocked Rhodes’ energy sword.
“Little devil, you’re still a long way off!”
At this time, Squard’s body was as black as ink, like an evil spirit who came out of hell. His tone was cold and his murderous intent was out of control as if he didn’t rate Rhodes at all.
Bathed in lightning Rhodes was very calm, and didn’t respond at all.
When his strike was blocked, he immediately took advantage of the situation to retreat. Amidst the lightning field, he seemed to be playing on the home court, and his speed and reaction were extremely fast.
With a cold look in Squard’s eyes, he chased after him without hesitation.
But at this moment, the surrounding lightning suddenly trembled, and one after another turned into lightning swords, then countless of them swept over like a storm.
ding ding ding ding…
The lightning swords bombarded Squard one after another. Although this attack was unable to break through the hardened protection of the Busoshoku Haki, it effectively limited Squard’s movement.
“His defense is a bit high!”
Rhodes’ expression remained unchanged because this was what he expected.
As a famous pirate, Squard’s physique may have already been honed to the peak, and the strength of his Busoshoku Haki was naturally extremely amazing. It is normal that the power of lightning alone cannot break his defense.
There is nothing to be discouraged about. After all, Rhodes’ practice time was less than a year.
“I’m afraid that I won’t be able to cause him some damaged unless I get the chance to cut him directly with my sword.”
Inside the thunderous roars of lightning, Rhodes calmly analyzed the gap between the two sides.
He has to admit that in the face of these long-established powerhouses, he is still a little immature.
Whether it is Haki or physical strength, they are not comparable. He can only contain him by the power of lightning, and it would be a bit challenging to create a chance to kill him.
At this moment, a figure broke into the lightning, Rhodes’ expression changed, and then he quickly calmed down, because the person who came was the revolutionary army agent he met before.
“You have to go, the Whitebeard Pirates are here.” He said quickly.
Rhodes narrowed his eyes slightly. Through the lightning, he looked at the sturdy figures that were approaching quickly. Among them, there were many, who were stronger than the silver fox. If they surround him, it would be difficult to even run.
He sighed softly and said, “You go first, I’ll set them off with some fireworks.”
The revolutionary army agent was puzzled but didn’t say much, and immediately walked away. Rhodes’ strength was recognized by him, and he no longer regarded him as a junior, but as a powerhouse at the same level.
Seeing this, Rhodes let out a sigh of relief.
A terrifying aura suddenly rose from him.
Like a thousand birds chirping.
The astonishing power of lightning suddenly poured out, but it did not spread in all directions, but all gathered on Rhodes’ open palms.
Endless lightning gathered, creating a large Thunderball that gradually changed from light blue to dark blue, and the color continued to deepen. Finally, it seemed to break through a certain critical point, and a silver light appeared unexpectedly.
A drop of sweat dripped from Rhodes’ forehead, but it quickly evaporated.
Obviously, this move is also a great burden on Rhodes’ body.
As if lifting a mountain, Rhodes slowly pushed the Thunderball out.
As soon as the Thunderball left his hand, Rhodes turned around without hesitation and left quickly.
With just two flashes, he disappeared from the street.
Squard, who has just broken through the Lightning’s siege at this time, rushed out head-on to find the Thunderball closing on him.
The Thunderball was dark blue, mixed with a hint of silver light, which looked extremely gorgeous and dazzling.
Before he could react, the large Thunderball suddenly stagnated and then exploded.
It sounded like a thousand shells exploding at the same time.
The lightning flashed like a flame, the violent force destroyed everything, and the earth was instantly blasted into a five-meter-deep black hole.
After taking a direct hit, Squard was blasted out in an instant, spewing a mouthful of blood in the air, and rolled over a dozen meters on the ground before he stopped in front of his comrades.
“What’s going on?”
“The captain was beaten like this?”
“What kind of enemy did you meet, is it someone from the Beast Pirates?”
The members of his crew were left stunned and hurriedly stepped forward to help Squard. Looking at the place that almost turned into ruins in the distance, and the nearby fragmented buildings, they couldn’t help showing awe, and for a while, they didn’t dare to make a move.
After Squard got up, his face was flushed, he was both humiliated, and shocked. Fortunately, he wasn’t severely injured because he was covered in the Busoshoku Haki, but his vision was still a bit blurry.
“Block the port for me and catch that kid!”
His tone was full of anger and irritation.
Squard got mad, and his heart was full of hatred after he got humiliated by a young man in front of his companions.
“Yes!” The pirates responded in succession.
The whole island fell into chaos at that moment.
And this time.
Rhodes had already arrived at the port and boarded the ship where Sabo and Koala were waiting.
Koala seemed to have received the news long ago. As soon as Rhodes boarded the ship, she ordered the sailor to set sail.
The oncoming sea breeze mixed with a little salty smell, made Rhodes finally relax.
Looking at the island that was gradually receding, Rhodes couldn’t help but laugh.
“You’ve made a lot of noises.” On the side, Koala shook her head helplessly.
He’s actually bold to dare to fight against the Whitebeard Pirates inside their territory!
Fortunately, he managed to escape.
Sabo patted Rhodes on the shoulder with a smile, feeling that his approach was very appetizing, and it was a pity he didn’t go all way out, otherwise, he would have had a great fight with Squard.
“Enough is enough!” Koala got angry.
Seeing this scene, Koala covered her forehead, feeling a little bad.
When Sabo was on a mission, he was very thickheaded and often messed up. She was responsible for cleaning up his mess every time. I thought Rhodes would be better, but she didn’t expect that this guy was more messed up than Sabo!
Enough is enough, why don’t you stay at the headquarters and manage the reserves.
“Is my mission completed?” Rhodes said.
Sabo nodded lightly, took out a Den Den Mushi, and handed it to Rhodes: “The specific appointment will be made at the headquarters, but for now, this is for you.”
Rhodes was stunned for a moment, a phone call?
