Chen Hanyu looked unwilling.
The fourth princess, Liu Tiantian, was also filled with anger. If this matter continued to be a deadlock, everyone would just be waiting here for them.
One of the male members of the seven-person team suddenly spoke up. “Captain, how about I stay behind. You all first head to the closest city.”
When the elder heard this, he quickly concurred. “That is good, that is good.”
However, Su Hao hesitated. “Will there be a problem if you travel alone?”
The male team member shook his head with a smile. “What problem can there be? Captain, don’t worry. I will just join up with you one day later in Julu City.”
The male team member thought that it wasn’t easy for their captain to mediate between the princess, prince consort, and Lady Chen.
Su Hao patted the male team member’s shoulder and left him a small sack of spirit currency. “Then you be careful. We will wait for you tomorrow at the city gate.”
The elder quickly showed Su Hao and the others their seats. When he descended from the terrestrial whale, he instructed everyone, “Just sit tight. Don’t get up to look around randomly later. Otherwise you might get tossed off the terrestrial whale.”
After saying this, he got off the terrestrial whale.
It was the first time for most of them to be riding such a large creature. It couldn’t be helped that they were a bit curious and excited.
Suddenly, the terrestrial whale shook.
Everyone yelped and quickly reached for their armrests.
They saw their line of vision slowly broadening. The terrestrial whale started ambling out of the boarding gate’s long corridor and rapidly galloped toward the Thunder Plains ahead.
Qiao Mu probed her petite head left and right.
She saw a wide expanse of plains in front of her eyes, and she simply couldn’t see its end.
“This terrestrial whale is running a bit too steadily, no?” Bai Xia remarked with a smile, “It’s not bumpy in the slightest.”
“I heard that the Thunder Plains stretches on for more than 50 kilometers, yet no flying beasts exist in its skies.”
“But of course. You’ll understand once we get to the center region of the Thunder Plains. The criss-crossing thunderbolts there would definitely strike any flying beasts flying recklessly into chunks of coal.”
There was no end in sight to the Thunder Plains. Looking further, the people could only see the faint shape of the red sun setting on the horizon.
It was already dusk. At their speed, they would definitely make it to Julu City before dark.
“We will be entering the thunderbolt area ahead. Everyone take caution.” A worker sitting cross-legged on the terrestrial whale’s head calmly warned everyone.
Sure enough, everyone soon heard a deafening boom.
As expected, the sound of loud thunder, accompanied by reddish-purple lightning, descended on the Thunder Plains.
Everyone sensed that that lightning bolt was only a hair’s breadth from hitting the terrestrial whale’s head. They were all immensely fearful.
Yet it seemed as if the terrestrial whale was self-equipped with a lightning rod as it pounced forward and weaved between the thunderbolts. Even if a portion of the thunderbolts landed on it, its thick and tough skin shielded it from the effects.
Bai Xia broke out in a cold sweat. After seeing that the terrestrial whale was still fine after running for a while, her heart finally settled back in place. She turned to the expressionless little stoic and commented, “This terrestrial whale should be an old hand at running across the Thunder Plains. There shouldn’t be much of a problem.”
Qiao Mu nodded as her pair of large eyes peered around curiously. She watched as those thunderbolts struck the earth with astonishing power.
“Why are there so many thunderbolts here?”
“Hey, take a look.. Is that a person out in front!”
