Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World - Chapter 654
Chapter 654 - Voiceless Soundbird
The Dwarf Race's boat wasn't big, so Zhao Hai always found himself sitting together with Billy . Naturally, he had no chance to return to the Space, therefore, he can just stay in the ship and chat with Billy .
To be honest, he was quite bored these past five days . However, even if the boat was small, there was still space for him to lie down, so Zhao Hai was able to fully rest in these five days .
Five days came by quite fast, the boat was now stopped at a pier . Billy led Zhao Hai down to the pier and walked out from the big mountain . When Zhao Hai and the others came out of the mountain, they had discovered that they were already in the forest .
Zhao Hai couldn't help but marvel at the scenery outside the mountain . The scene in front of him was just so beautiful .
The thing in front of him was a rainforest, one with lush trees everywhere . There were shrubs under the trees as well as some plants that Zhao Hai was unable to recognize . Most importantly, the place was so primitive, he can't find a single artificial intervention here . It seems like it was a kingdom for plants, it was very attractive .
At this time, a sound suddenly came from the forest . Zhao Hai stopped, then he turned his head only to find a small magic beast . This small beast looked like a small monkey, but it was really small . It looked very cute, it had fluffy fur, two round ears, bright eyes and a look that would seem like it was just a toy,
This small monkey was also curiously looking at Zhao Hai and the others . There was no fear that was found in its face . Zhao Hai came to like this creature more and more as time passed by . He turned his hand and took out an apple before throwing it to the direction of the small monkey .
The beast was startled, it immediately whizzed towards the opposite tree . It lashed its tongue and showed its teeth towards Zhao Hai . However, Zhao Hai didn't move, he only looked at the small monkey and laughed . This left the monkey with a confused expression . Then when it found the red apple on the ground, he immediately disregarded Zhao Hai and the others as it slowly jumped down from the tree . It ran towards the apple and smelled it . It expressed excitement on its face before taking a nib out of the apple, and before long the whole fruit went into its belly .
Then the small monkey turned its head to Zhao Hai, zhi zhi, it sounded, it seems like it wanted more . Zhao Hai smiled faintly before throwing another apple towards the monkey . After eating a few more apples, the small monkey made a face towards Zhao Hai before it went up the tree and squatted on a large branch, then it just slept there .
Upon seeing the small monkey's action, Zhao Hai couldn't help but laugh . This little thing was too lovable . Billy and the others who were right by his side were also smiling . They saw how the monkey gave Zhao Hai a grin before going to the tree and then went to sleep, not caring about Zhao Hai anymore . This made everyone laugh .
At this time, a shadow suddenly flashed from the forest . Zhao Hai stared for a moment before he became alert . Then a green figure appeared in front of them .
Zhao Hai stared, but he didn't make any moves . He noticed that the green figure in front of him was a person, a blonde man wearing a green robe .
This person was very handsome, he had a face that would make even women jealous . He had golden blonde hair that was draped freely behind him, tied by a grass rope . In his hand was a harp, and most importantly, Zhao Hai noticed that the person's ears were longer than that of the humans . It looks quite sharp, but it didn't hinder the man's beauty .
On the other hand, this effeminate man looked at Zhao Hai's group with a stern expression . Zhao Hai knew that this person was an Elf . But he didn't speak, he knew that the first contact was Billy's task .
Billy knew about this, therefore he immediately took a step step forward and the bowed to the Elf, ’’Elf friend, hello . I am the Dwarf Race's Patriarch Billy, we came here to visit the Elf Queen . ’’
The Elf returned the bow, and then looked at Billy and said, ’’I have seen Patriarch Billy, come with me, the Queen is already waiting for you . ’’ After that, he turned his head to Zhao Hai .
Zhao Hai didn't delay, he also bowed to the Elf and said, ’’Hello, friend . I am the Buda Clan's Patriarch, Zhao Hai . I came here to pay a visit to the Elf Queen . ’’
Zhao Hai was aware that this harp bearing man had a unique occupation . The harp in the Elf's hand wasn't only for decoration . The strings of this harp were made of special Elven material . This not only allowed the harp to play beautiful music, it also made it possible for the user to make magical arrows from it .
Most importantly, the Elves can cast a specific magic that can give additional reinforcement to their arrows, increasing their lethality . This was something that made Elves famous in the continent .
However, not all Elves can have a harp as a weapon . Those who do were their most formidable warriors .
In addition to music and arrows, the harp also had another function, and that was to produce a barrage of agic beads .
This barrage of beads was a special attack of the Elves . It wasn't like the arrow that contains penetrative force, the beads were things that can store up magic and exhibit various effects like explosion or other magics .
Using this function was very unusual . The elves would place their harps to the ground, and then the fingers on their both hands would alternate in stroking the instrument . With each string that was plucked, a raindrop sized bead would eject from the harp that would cause a lethal blow towards the enemy .
When the Elves waged war with the Humans, these magic beads had become a nightmare to the Human army . Ten harp-bearers working together could decimate a thousand man army almost instantaneously .
But when Zhao Hai heard this, the only thing he could think about was a machine gun, a machine gun that had explosive ammunition explosive ammunition .
The harp-bearing Elf returned Zhao Hai's bow and said, ’’We welcome the arrival of Patriarch Zhao Hai . Her Majesty is already waiting for all of you . Please come with me . ’’ Then he turned around and led Zhao Hai's group through the forest .
During the journey, Zhao Hai was fully convinced that the Elves were invincible in this forest, they were indeed formidable . Animals in the forest, even the most efficient predators, would still produce a sound every time they make a move . On the other hand, the Elves were completely silent . It seems like they had melded themselves to the forest, it was very astonishing .
The group ran along with the Elf as they progressed through the forest . Then all of a sudden, the Elf stopped, he played a gentle note on his harp which transformed into an beautiful melody . Then the group suddenly heard a cheerful cry from atop the tree . While Zhao Hai was still in a daze, several shadows suddenly fell down in front of them .
Zhao Hai and the others fixed their vision towards the shadows and what they saw were a group of big birds . These birds looked like cranes, but their claws were something that should belong to a hawk . Zhao Hai hadn't seen a magic beast like this before . Moreover, these birds also have big builds, it wouldn't be a problem for them to have a person sitting in their back .
After playing his harp, the Elf turned to Zhao Hai and the others and said, ’’Patriarch Billy, Patriarch Zhao Hai, please ride these Voiceless Soundbirds . Our Tree of Life is quite far from here . ’’
Then the Elf rode on the back of a Voiceless Soundbird . After seeing the Elf, Zhao Hai and the others didn't delay and also rode on the backs of the other birds . Then the harp-bearer played another tune before the birds whipped their wings and flew off into the sky .
Zhao Hai already has experience with flying due to his Blood Hawk, so he didn't feel anything in this ride . On the other hand, Billy and the others were still inexperienced in air travel . This made each and every one of their one of their faces quite pale .
While the Elf lead the group of Voiceless Soundbirds across the forest, Zhao Hai examined the birds as he sat on the back of one of them . These birds had a mouth that was longer than the average bird's, but not longer than a crane . Their claws were similar to those of the hawks . The Birds were two meters high and they had wings of five meters each . Moreover, even if they were carrying a person on their backs, their flight was still quite smooth, it was clear that these birds were also quite strong .
Most importantly, the cries of these birds were very clear, it was very serene and was like a melody in itself, very interesting to listen to . It might be possible that the name of Voiceless Songbird came from this .
But what made Zhao Hai feel strange was the fact that he hasn't heard of a Voiceless Songbird in the continent before . Why was this?
One must say that the Elves had waged multiple wars with the Humans . If these birds were used by the Elves at those times, then they should've already been written in Human records . And even if the Radiant Church had modified the history, they wouldn't have an incentive to eliminate the mention of these birds . Were these birds a recently tamed beast by the Elves?
In truth, Zhao Hai had guessed right . These Voiceless Soundbirds were indeed recent additions to the Elven Race . These Voiceless Soundbirds were extremely rare in the past, and they were also quite vigilant . Only Elves with affinity to these birds were able to tame them, otherwise they wouldn't come in contact with an Elf . Also, the Voiceless Songbirds weren't as big as they were now .
However, just more than 300 years ago, a nest of Voiceless Soundbirds suddenly fell down from the Tree of Life . This nest of eggs soon hatched and bore large Voiceless Soundbirds, two meters in height . Most importantly, these Voiceless Soundbirds weren't vigilant towards the Elves and were even the ones to go and come in contact with them . And slowly, as time went by, these Voiceless Soundbirds had become the mounts of the Elves .
