The Almighty Dragon General Chapter 2657–‘That’s my own problem, and it has nothing to do with you.” The Blademaster of Mount Grinch looked at James resentfully.
James tried to placate him. “I’m sure you’ve heard rumors that a fated one will appear in Sangria and lift the curse. I happen to be the fated one from the legends. I can lift the curse and undo the Cursed Seal on this planet. After I succeed, the curse on this planet will be gone, and there won’t be a limit on the lifespan of living beings here. You’ll be able to continue living.”
The Blademaster of Mount Grinch looked at James and asked, “So what’s the reason you came to see me?”
James said earnestly, ‘The Crepe Myrtle Sword Pavilion plays an important part in lifting these curses. The key to unraveling the secrets within the Crepe Myrtle Sword Pavilion is the Crepe Myrtle Divine Sword which was lost long ago. I obtained a clue about its location being related to the Seafolk. I must travel to see the Seafolk so that I can acquire the sword to lift the curse on this world.”
‘You’re asking me to lead you to the Seafolk just for the Crepe Myrtle Divine Sword?”
The Blademaster of Mount Grinch looked at James, and his expression became solemn.
James nodded and said, ‘Yes. Of course, you can also refuse to help me. However, I won’t be able to lift the curses, and it won’t be long before you die if you choose to not help me.”
The Blademaster of Grinch fell silent, contemplating whether to help James.
James was not in a rush and waited patiently for an answer. He was convinced the
Blademaster of Mount Grinch would eventually agree to help.
After all, everyone was afraid of death. James believed it was the same for the Bldemaster of Mount Grinch.
After a while, the Blademaster of Mount Grinch looked at James.
With a troubled face, he said, “It’s not that I don’t want to bring you there, but when I left the Seafolk’s territory, I gave them my word not to disclose their home to others. If I break my promise, they will hunt me down. The Seafolk’s strength is far greater than you can ever imagine.”
After hearing his concerns, James reassured him, ‘You just need to lead us to their approximate vicinity. They won’t know you were the one who lead us there.”
James’ words tempted the Blademaster of Mount Grinch.
The Blademaster of Mount Grinch stared at James. After a few seconds, he took a deep breath and said, “Alright. I’ll lead you to them.”
It was pointless for him to keep his word since he was already approaching the end of his life.
To survive, he had no choice but to break his promise.
After the Blademaster of Mount Grinch agreed to help, James was relieved.
The Blademaster of Mount Grinch asked, “When are you planning to go?”
James said, “We can’t delay this matter and must depart immediately.”
“Alright. Let me just settle a few things here.”
The Blademaster of Mount Grinch walked toward his four apprentices and said, “I’ll be leaving for some time. You four head back to Mount Grinch.”
The four identical women replied in unison, “Understood.”
The Blademaster of Mount Grinch returned to James and said, “Let’s go.” Walganus and Yanina observed James from a distance. Seeing that James had successfully persuaded the Blademaster of Mount Grinch, the two eventually met up with them .
James briefly introduced his companions to the Blademaster of Mount Grinch.
The Blademaster of Mount Grinch was not interested in Walganus and Yanina. He nodded indifferently and replied apathetically in acknowledgment.
Right after that, the group departed from the mountain.
Like Earth, most of Galileo’s surface was composed of large bodies of water with small swaths of land.
Only 0.0001% of the area was solid land, while the rest was the ocean. The vast oceans were mysterious and full of dangers. Even a powerhouse at the Sage Rank could not fully explore their oceans.
A few days later, the group reached a beach.
The Blademaster of Mount Grinch said, ‘The oceans are full of danger, and death is only a small mistake away. At our current level, it will take about three months to reach the Seafolk if we travel at full speed. I also have a warship that can take us to sea but it will take us longer; probably somewhere close to six months.”
