HxH in One Piece World - Chapter 17
Chapter 17 Hatred
The harvest tonight has satisfied Maude.
About fifteen times the physique of an ordinary person, as well as the original physical skills that were practiced, plus a highly lethal smooth-bore flintlock within 50 meters.
With such capital, it should be no problem to go to the streets.
But if there is a conflict with people, this self-protection ability is still not enough.
In such thoughts, Maude fell into a deep sleep.
From the beginning to the end, he didn’t know that Saul and Sonny saw the hunt tonight.
The next day.
As dawn broke, the two corpses in the tunnel had been moved, leaving only a pool of dried blood.
The nearby residents came and went in the lanes, but turned a blind eye to the blood stains in front of the wall.
Although this is a residential area, the residents living here are basically pirates and people from the underground world, and they are accustomed to this kind of attack.
Therefore, even if the two corpses were still there, they would at most just glance at them when they passed by, and then they would not take it seriously.
After the weapon shop opened, Maude took a few steps to watch the “homicide” scene from a distance.
Although it is not clear who took the corpse, Maude didn’t care too much.
Regarding the actions last night, he is confident that he will not be discovered.
Furthermore, the pirate group that Reid is in will go to sea after noon.
And Reid is just a combatant in the pirate regiment, and if he dies, he will die. As long as the funds are sufficient, the pirate regiment can recruit a group of replacements in Mad Hatter Town at any time.
Therefore, Maude did not think that the Pirate Group would temporarily change its itinerary because of Reid’s death.
Unless the other unidentified person will be more important than Reid, important enough for the captain of the pirate regiment to take it seriously.
This possibility should be very low.
He glanced at the passers-by in the laneway, his eyes seemed to be staring at pieces of walking pork.
Withdrawing his aggressive gaze without a trace, Maude returned to the weapon shop and began a routine exercise.
He had noticed that Sonny was wrong, and looked as if he was in a dull mood.
I think there are always so many days every month for women…
Maude didn’t want to get rid of the bad, squatting in the corner of the store, doing a group of exercises.
“There are still seven days before the auction begins…”
Soon, Maude’s thoughts drifted to the next prey.
In the information provided by Sonny, there are quite a few suitable prey.
However, you have to wait for two days before doing it.
After all, it is necessary to lower the hunting frequency to reduce the risk of being discovered.
Port of Mad Hatter Town.
Pirate boats of various sizes are anchored in the huge open “U”-shaped bay.
The Point Bull Pirate Ship that Reid is on is also among them, a brig that is not too small in scale.
When it was time to set sail, the members of the Jianniu Pirate Group had completed the assembly early and were fully prepared to set sail.
On the deck of the pirate ship, several pirates walked slowly back and forth, seeming to be responsible for guard work.
In the cabin, the rest of the pirates, including the captain, are all here.
They formed a circle. There was a table in the center on which lay two cold and stiff corpses.
Captain Katzt, wearing a double-horned helmet and a bushy beard, stood by the table.
He stared down at the corpse, looking like a volcano about to erupt.
The wide-open eyes were full of bloodshot eyes, and the breath exhaling from his mouth and nose seemed to be infected with a layer of killing intent.
Under the influence of Katzt, there was an atmosphere of killing in the cabin.
Under the influence of the atmosphere, most of the crew looked solemn, while some crew members were just pretending to match the atmosphere in the cabin.
After a while, as the cabin door was pushed open, the atmosphere in the cabin became frozen.
Katzt looked at the hatch, and the crowd voluntarily let out a gap.
A cadre with a long knife at his waist pushed in, strode through the gap in the crowd, and came to Katzt.
Katzt stared at him closely, and asked in a cold voice, “How?”
The cadre named Raglan shook his head and said, “Nothing was found.”
“Huh? Not even a clue?”
Raglan’s face was calm.
A gloomy color flashed in Katzt’s eyes.
Something happened at the juncture, which made him extremely unhappy.
Seeing his captain’s anger, Raglan reminded him in good time: “Captain, we have to come back before the auction. There is not much time left to delay.”
“You don’t need to remind me.”
Katzt said with anger in his eyes, “Raglan, I want you to stay and solve this.”
Raglan takes the lead.
A few minutes later, the Jianniu Pirate Ship slowly left the port.
On the eve of the auction, most of the foreign pirate ships sailed into the port to anchor, and rare pirate ships chose to sail at this time.
Many pirates in the harbor couldn’t help but glance at the Pointy Bull Pirate Ship.
Raglan, who was ordered to stay, watched the pirate ship go away until the pirate ship turned into a small black spot, with a bag of money on his waist, he turned and walked towards the town.
Among the two crew members killed last night, one was a navigator who had been trained in the Pirate Group for two years.
If only one combatant was killed, it wouldn’t be enough to work hard on this kind of knotty eyes.
But the navigator is different, it is one of the important capital to go to the great waterway.
So, even if there was a more experienced navigator on board, Kazte couldn’t swallow this breath anyway.
Raglan can understand the captain’s mood, which is one of the reasons why he is willing to stay and do this.
Of course, he is actually more inclined to set sail, after all, the goal of this set sail is a big prey that can’t be missed from time to time and will never come again.
A big prey like that will surely have a pretty wonderful plundering experience.
Raglan thought regretfully.
Half an hour later, he came to Pub Street.
Instead of looking at the large pubs on both sides of the street, he looked in the direction of the alley.
Go through the flow of people and walk into a certain laneway between the house and the house.
After walking through the lane for more than ten minutes, Raglan stopped in front of a bar.
He looked at the oil lamp made of skulls hanging on the wall, then pushed open the door of the bar and walked in.
Inside the bar, a bartender who was wiping a glass glanced at Raglan who walked in, but did not say hello.
Raglan glanced at the dimly lit bar, and there weren’t even half the guests.
He retracted his gaze, turned to the bartender in the bar, and asked, “Is the wolf rat out?”
The bartender glanced at Raglan silently, and put the wiped glass on the hanger by himself.
Raglan frowned, and when he was about to speak, a cold voice suddenly came from behind him.
“I’ve always been there.”
Hearing the sudden voice, Raglan’s face changed drastically.
Apart from the emotional shock, Raglan took a few steps forward, then quickly turned to look at the sound source.
At the same time, his right hand was already climbing the hilt of the knife, making a pose that he could attack at any time.
When he saw that the speaker was a thin man with sharp eyebrows and sharp mouth, he couldn’t help but stunned.
“You are… a wolf rat?”
