At the end of the mission, Rhodes and the other two naturally didn’t stay outside and returned to Baltigo by boat.
After more than ten days of sailing, the sailboat returned to the Baltigo without any further problems.
Looking at the familiar white soil in the distance, all three let out a sigh of relief.
After all, this is the new world. Strong people are everywhere, the sea is treacherous, and the weather is unpredictable. Even with the strength of the three, they are startling every step of the way, with constant twists and turns.
At this time, when they saw their familiar island, they could finally feel relieved.
Although Baltigo’s landscape is not good, and it is a little desolate, for them, it is the safest place in the New World.
The three of them landed on the shore, reported back to the revolutionary army at the coastal base, and then walked directly to the headquarters castle.
It is always faster to go home than to leave.
For most of the day, the quaint vicissitudes of the headquarters castle were already in sight. The three of them looked at each other and accelerated their speed tacitly, and soon came to the bottom of the castle.
“You guys go to rest first, I’ll hand in the task,” Sabo said.
Koala stretched his waist and said a little lazily: “Speaking of this, it seems that you will soon become a senior cadre.”
“I don’t know about that.”
Sabo waved his hand and walked to the top floor of the castle.
Rhodes and Koala also said goodbye to each other and went back to their respective homes.
The headquarters castle is still quiet and empty, with quaint stone pillars standing root by root.
Rhodes sighed with emotion. He still remembered that when he first became a reserve last year, he felt a little shock and a sense of insignificance in this place.
But at this moment, looking at this place again, there is only a kind of indifference and calmness.
Because this castle, no matter how splendid and magnificent it is built, he can destroy with one sword.
“Well, this desire to destroy is not good.”
Rhodes shook his head slightly, but his feet kept going, and he walked quickly to the outside of the familiar training hall.
“Hey, Rhodes is back!”
When someone saw Rhodes, they were slightly startled, revealing a strange look.
Nia took a few steps, and quickly came to Rhodes and said:
“Why did you take so long! Shanoa, Crow, and the others came back several months ago.”
Speaking of which, she leaned over her and said with a sigh of relief, “You didn’t fail in your mission, right?”
Rhodes was slightly stunned and immediately reacted.
For normal cadre assessment tasks, the results will be available in at most a month.
But because of his apprenticeship with Gion, it took him more than four months. Naturally, after such a long time, some people would start doubting.
Some people even thought that Rhodes have died outside. After all, it is the new world, and this kind of thing had happened before.
Figuring out the joints, Rhodes shook his head amusingly and said:
“How could it fail?”
“It was just delayed by some things.”
“This is good, this is good.”
Nia breathed a sigh of relief when she heard the words, and said with a smile: “I didn’t believe it either. How could a monster like you fall in the cadre assessment.”
“I heard that guy, Crow, has developed his Kenbunshoku and is waiting to challenge you.”
“He is very confident. Many people are optimistic about him.”
When Crow lost to Rhodes, it was largely due to the suppression of Haki. After all, Crowe’s speed and strength in the half-beast transformation surpassed Rhodes’.
Rhodes shook his head lightly and did not speak, but Nia could feel absolute confidence from him, and a strange look flashed in her eyes.
The two walked casually and chatted.
Speaking of which, Nia at this time has also become an official agent in the revolutionary army, but it has not been assigned yet.
At this moment, Rhodes was startled when he saw two familiar figures approaching.
One is Crow, and the other is the one-armed swordsman who triggered his talent for swordsmanship when he first came to this world!
“That’s Crow’s teacher, the swordsman Ryuji, who is very powerful and a high-ranked cadre.”
Nia followed her gaze and introduced Rhodes in a low voice.
Rhodes blinked, and suddenly remembered the legendary dragon-killer, Ryoma because Ryuji’s attire was very much like a traditional samurai of Wano.
I don’t know if there is any relationship between the two.
Even if he is not a descendant of the great swordsman Ryoma, it is estimated that he’s from Wano.
Wano is a mysterious island in the New World. There are many brilliant swordsmanship schools proliferating in it. The most famous of them is the legendary swordsman Ryoma who killed a dragon.
At this time, Crow also noticed Rhodes, his eyes suddenly lit up, and he walked over.
He was ready to challenge him, but then Ryuji suddenly opened his mouth and said:
“Come back, you are not his opponent.”
Crow’s expression froze when he heard the words, his face was blue and white.
But Crow was very aware of how powerful his teacher was and how sharp his vision is. He didn’t dare to disobey at all and retreated obediently.
It’s just that there is still a strong sense of unwillingness and suspicion in his eyes.
In order to defeat Rhodes, it can be said that he racked his brains and worked hard, and finally developed his Haki. Just when he was about to defeat Rhodes and regain his glory, he was denied by the most respected man in his life.
Even if he trusts his teacher, he can’t help but raise a little doubt. Could it be that his teacher is wrong?
A few months ago, he was still in an inextricable battle with Rhodes. If it weren’t for his lack of control over Haki, he would have definitely won.
At this time, Ryuji stared at Rhodes with deep eyes, as if he had noticed something, and said with great interest:
“If there’s a chance hope we can learn from each other.”
Rhodes was surprised by this man’s sharpness, but he didn’t feel any fear and responded calmly.
Hearing this, both Crow and Nia took a deep breath, showing disbelief.
Ryuji is a senior cadre of the Revolutionary Army. He was a top swordsman at his peak. Even if he lost one of his arms, his strength is still terrifying, and he is definitely stronger than a rear admiral.
“I’m glad to see that we have a strong man like you with us.”
Ryuji seems to be a serious man, even if he is complimenting, his expression is still very solemn, and he looks rather old-fashioned.
He took a deep look at Rhodes, then took Crow around and left.
“He’s a very strong swordsman.” Rhodes narrowed his eyes and said.
“Of course! Ryuji-san suddenly appeared in the new world, making a name for himself, and became popular for a while. Later, he was recruited by the leader and became a senior cadre.”
“Many people were unconvinced at that time, but Ryuji defeated more than ten senior cadres in a row with one sword, and this established his reputation in one fell swoop.”
Nia finished speaking, and then showed a strange look, “Such a man, that is pretty famous in the world of swordsmanship, why would he ask you to learn from each other?”
“Could it be that he wants to take you as a disciple?”
“That’s right, you are the most talented swordsman in our revolutionary army, maybe he wants to accept you as a disciple.”
“Hurry up and apprentice, Rhodes, this is a real swordsman expert, and he is only steps away from being a great swordsman.”
She was excited and kept talking as if she wanted to be a disciple.
“He doesn’t have the qualifications to be my teacher.”
Rhodes shook his head lightly.
An injured top swordsman; his strength is at best six or four. If they really fight to the death. With the power of thunder, Rhodes has a great chance of winning.
In this case, if Rhodes asks him, Ryuji would probably be embarrassed to accept!
Hearing this, Nia’s excitement froze on her face, and she was a little overwhelmed.
After not seeing each other for a few months, has Rhodes reached the point where even senior cadres can’t reach him?
Looking at Rhodes’ very calm and handsome face, Nia couldn’t doubt it; if this man said it, he would definitely be able to do it!
Of course, Rhodes is confident, because tonight, he will begin the first tempering of the internal organs!
According to previous experience, the effect of the first tempering session is often the most significant.
