Leiyin naturally didn’t agree to the proposal of marriage. However, to not hurt Jenny, he only fibbed and said he would think about it.
Leiyin’s ambitions were in the world, so how could he possibly indulge himself in a romantic relationship here?
Since the hero had said so, everyone naturally didn’t rush. Thus, Leiyin and Farmer returned home. As soon as they entered the courtyard, they heard the sound of sad sobbing.
Farmer and Leiyin peeked into Verdan’s room and saw Verdan lying on the bed, crying like a tearful person.
As she cried, she was talking to herself. Although her voice wasn’t that loud, Leiyin and Farmer outside the door heard her clearly.
“Now you’ve become the hero of the village, are you satisfied with that? Are you proud? And are you going to marry Jenny? Marry Jenny… Okay, let’s wish you two a hundred years together… I’m not going to marry you, you arrogant, smug, perverted idiot! I won’t even if you beg me! Absolutely not! Sob…”
She was a fifteen-year-old girl who was crying even sadder than a three-year-old child. It turned out that Verdan thought that Leiyin and Jenny’s marriage had been arranged in response to the urging of the people.
Now, even a fool could know what Verdan was thinking.
At this point, Leiyin just shook his head and was about to turn around. However, Farmer walked up to him, “Mr. Leiyin, you should know how Verdan feels when you see this. This… This girl, she’s already in love with you… I’m also very fond of you, and I want you to become my family.”
Farmer’s meaning had been made very clear. That was it; he wanted Leiyin to marry Verdan and become his son-in-law.
Leiyin scratched his head like a blockhead, “Mr. Farmer, please allow me to think about it…”
Farmer smiled at Leiyin, “Yes, I will wait for your decision.”
For a moment, Leiyin felt that he was going to collapse. There was Verdan on one side and Jenny on the other. No matter which one he chose, he would hurt the other.
Meanwhile, Leiyin genuinely thought that he didn’t want to choose either one.
Again, he was determined to be the strongest and freest man in the world, so how could he settle for anything less than the best?
He also understood that if he stayed here, he would be highly respected. Both Verdan and Jenny (especially Verdan) were some of the most beautiful women in the world. If he stayed here, he would be worshipped like a god, enjoy a world-wide reputation, and be accompanied by a sweet and tender home for the rest of his life.
For many men, this was an unattainable dream!
However, this wasn’t Leiyin’s dream. How could a sparrow and swallow know the ambitions of a great swan? How could a creature with thin scales be in the pond? When the wind blew, it would turn into a dragon!
The same night.
Not wanting to think so much about relationships, Leiyin turned on the system’s personal information, which was already very different from before.[ Leiyin.
Age: 16 years
Ninja rank: Genin (Advanced)
Kekkei Genkai or Human Strength: None
Ninjutsu: Lightning Release – Chidori Nagashi (A-rank), White Blade (D-rank, judged by the self-invented Jutsu system), Rasengan (A-rank), Big Ball Rasengan (A-rank)
Inventory (tools, weapons ): Scroll of Seals x 2, Kunai x 10
Contracted Beast: None
Sage Mode: Unenabled
Chakra Volume: 1200/1200 ]
While he was amazed at how fast his strength grew, he was also impressed by the system’s convenience. Since the system’s item bar could store tools and weapons freely, he didn’t even have to hold them in his hand. It was like a spatial ring. Furthermore, the items that were stored in the system could be used at any time.
He had already reached the rank of “Genin (Advanced),” which meant that he was only one step away from the rank of “Chunin” (Middle Ninja). Besides, when he reached the Chunin (Middle Ninja) level, he could start the system to draw Kekkei Genkai or Human Strength.
When he thought of this, Leiyin seemed impatient to see what kind of Kekkei Genkai he would have.
This wasn’t the only thing that made him feel good. He had killed the brothers, Andrin and Anderson, of the Bad Wolf Pirates and sealed their bodies in the scroll. It meant that he now had 15 million Belly.
If the 15 million were to extract Ninjutsu, it would be one B-rank Ninjutsu, plus five C-rank Ninjutsu. At that time, his chakra and combat power would increase by a large margin.
However, the key problem now was that the corpse would still be two useless corpses if it hadn’t been exchanged for bailey. So, Leiyin had to go to the marine first to exchange the bounty.
Although Leiyin was now very popular in the village, with a high sense of presence and recognition, his real ambition was to roam across the vast expanse of the sea, not to spend his days in this comfortable nest.
On the next day, he went to say goodbye to Farmer and the others.
Of course, Farmer and others were reluctant to let him go, but they couldn’t stop his determination. When they saw how determined Leiyin was, they no longer retained him.
Farmer gave Leiyin a map of the East Blue and Grand Line. He also gave him a [Log Pose] and taught him how to use it. In addition, since Leiyin’s previous ship had been bitten off by a sea king, he was given another ship.
At the time of departure, the island’s harbor was full of people. All of them had come to see Leiyin off, including two girls, who were crying like weepers.
These two girls were Jenny and Verdan.
The moment Leiyin sailed away, Verdan could no longer control her emotions and shouted in the direction of the ship, “Leiyin, you big idiot! I won’t let you go!”
“I know a little about your feelings, but I can only say I’m sorry, Verdan…” Leiyin muttered to himself.
He didn’t understand at all what Verdan meant by “I won’t let you go.” When he did understand, it was something that would happen later on.
When he was finally on the sea, the breeze was blowing in his face.
Leiyin’s heart couldn’t help but feel a surge of excitement. Suddenly, he saw a bird flying in the sea nearby. He immediately blew a whistle, when the bird heard the whistle, it flew over to him.
It was a seagull. It was relatively large, with a navy hat on its head and a backpack around its neck.
Oh, so this is the News Coo.
The News Coo’s backpack had a number “80” written in all caps, which meant that each newspaper cost eighty Belly.
“I thought it was fifty Belly. Has the price increased?” Leiyin, who was familiar with the anime, said.
The News Coo nodded its head adorably.
“Okay, eighty it is. Here you go, give me a copy.”
The News Coo got the money, took a newspaper out of its backpack, and flew away, flapping its wings.
Leiyin opened the newspaper, and the headline on it was, “MONKEY D. GARP, THE MARINE VICE ADMIRAL, IS COMING TO THE EAST BLUE TO INSPECT THE MARINE BRANCHES…”
