Awakening - Chapter 116
At meal time in the Hotel restaurant, Kazumi suddenly smiled and said: “Brother, do you feel some itchiness in the vicinity of your neck?”
“My skin is thicker, so I do not feel it.” Lei Yin turned a blind eye toward those strange vision at the restaurant.
Kazumi watched him with a smile, “It seems like brother has become the object of resentment by other people.”
“I am used to it.” Lei Yin said while wiping off the cream from Amy’s mouth.
“Kazumi’s brother is amazing, that was the first time I saw someone spoke French in real life, moreover, it was from the person that I knew.” Take Asasei’s whole face looked at him adoringly.
Lei Yin did not want to continue discussing this topic and asked Kazumi: “Where are we going today?”
“I heard that because we have too many participants, the cruise ship cannot hold us all, so we have been divided into two groups. One group will go to Amami and the other group will go to Yakushima. Where do you want to go?”
“Either way is fine, in any case, I have not gone to either place.”
“Then how about we go to Yakushima, I’ve seen the pictures on the brochures, the scenery there seems quite beautiful.” Kazumi thought and then said.
Lei Yin nodded his head.
But in the afternoon when they were about to board the ship, they were told that the ship to Yakushima was nearly full. There were only three positions left.
Seeing this, Lei Yin had to change his destination and boarded the ship to Amami.
Kazumi wanted to go with him but was advised by him to go back.
“Takeda, take care of them along the way.”
“Don’t worry, I know what to do.” Takeda madly hit his own chest.
“Brother, see you at the hotel tonight.” Kazumi reluctantly parted way.
“Alright.” After saying goodbye to them, Lei Yin walked to the ship carrying Amy.
The number of students and tourists were too much. Moreover, the ships were medium-sized ferries usually used by tourists, so even to Amami they needed two ships, and Lei Yin and Amy were on the second ship.
Truly ‘enemies often cross each other’s path.’ After boarding the ship and saw Narimura Haruko sitting in the ship hold, that phrase immediately appeared in Lei Yin’s mind.
There were several familiar faces milling around Narimura Haruko, but Yoshikawa, who never left this school new beauty, was not one of them.
The reason for Yoshikawa’s absence was known to Lei Yin. That guy would get seasick, moreover, it was the worst kind of seasick. If he forced himself to sit for ten minutes, he may have survived. But the trip to Amami or Yakushima will take, at least, more than an hour boat ride; midway through the journey, he would certainly throw up unconscious. That image-conscious guy will choose death rather than showing that scene in front of Narimura Haruko.
Lei Yin did not want to see their faces so he chose the position near the ship room.
“I never thought that guy would also come.” A male student sitting next to Narimura Haruko sneered.
“He won’t be coming with us right?”
“Who knows what that weirdo is thinking about.”
“What happens?” After looking back at the man in the back, Narimura Haruko turned to the male student next to her.
“Let’s go sing karaoke after dinner, yesterday I found a place with a pretty good design.”
“Let’s talk about it later.”
Seeing that she was not very interested in that suggestion, that male student looked disappointed. While the other two boys showed a gloating expression.
At this time, Lei Yin, who sat on the stern, said to Amy: “Kid, did you enjoy these two days?”
The little girl nodded, and then tilted her head to think for a moment and said: “You said you wanted to teach me how to swim, but why didn’t you teach me when we soaked in the Onsen?
“Little fool, you were in the women’s bath area, if I go there they will call me a pervert.” Lei Yin smiled and pinched her face.
“What’s a pervert?” The little girl showed a puzzled expression.
Lei Yin did not know how to explain that term to her, and had to say: “Pervert is a very, very bad people.”
The little girl nodded her head, seemingly not really understand.
“If you want to learn how to swim, when we get back, I will take you to the beach and teach you.”
Looking at her smiling face, Lei Yin’s mood became much better. Unwilling to watch the TV in the cabin, he picked her up and went outside to see the sea.
Seeing every now and then, from the side of the hull, there were fast swimming fishes, the little girl very excitedly called up.
The little girl’s crisp laughter coupled with her lovely countenance attracted the attention of a pair of elderly foreign couple. That elderly couple came over, wherein the tall foreign woman could not help but hold and kiss Amy’s face, while her mouth constantly called “little angle.”
Receiving this sudden ‘attack,’ Amy instinctively withdrew into Lei Yin’s bosom. Seeing that the couple has no malicious intention, Lei Yin whispered the girl to comfort her. After a while, Amy finally poked her little head out of his bosom and smiled to the couple. Seeing her lovely smile, that American woman could not help but send several fierce motherly kisses to her.
Hearing Lei Yin was, unexpectedly, quite fluent in English, the gray-haired man was very pleased and patted him on the shoulder and then started to ask incessantly.
Regarding this enthusiastic elderly couple, Lei Yin, without any better option, has to spend words chatting with them.
Seeing him speaking fluent English with a foreign couple, many students aboard the ship showed jealousy and envy from their eyes. As for those female students, they were unblinkingly staring at the “human weapon,” as if this was the first time they saw him.
“Humph, what’s the big deal, it’s just some foreign language, but still using it non-stop here.” The guy sitting next to Narimura Haruko could not help but sneer.
At this time, Narimura Haruko suddenly said dryly: “If you are fluent in two foreign languages, you are also eligible to do so.”
“Haruko, you….” That guy never thought she would say such words. The other two guys also showed a surprised expression.
Aware of her gaffe, Narimura Haruko immediately added: “I just don’t want to discuss that person again. By the way, how long does it take to Amami?”
Hearing her words, those few guys immediately felt relieved.
They were now going to Amami archipelago which consisted of Amami Oshima, Kikaijima, Tokunoshima, Okinoerabujima, Yoronjima, and other islands. These islands have hibiscus, bougainvillea, and other subtropical plants. There were also rare animals such as black rabbit. In the vicinity of the islands there was also a rare colored coral. In the seaside resorts in the Amami archipelago, one can do sailing, yachting, scuba diving, and other various water sports.
The ship has been sailing for about an hour or so, and in the cabin, many people have started to feel drowsy.
Lei Yin said to Amy: “Kid, you go get some sleep, wait until I wake you up.”
Having been sleeping quite late these few days, the little girl was a little sleepy, so she nodded and laid her legs on a chair while using his leg as a pillow.
Bored, Lei Yin had to look up at the slightly boring TV show.
After about half an hour, when Lei Yin almost fell asleep, he suddenly found the light that was coming through the windows from the outside began to darken. When he raised his head to look at the outside of the ship, he saw large parts of the sky outside has turned dark.
Seeing this, his heart suddenly had a bad premonition.
At the same time, the Captain of the ship also stone-facedly looked at the birds in the sky. He remembered very clearly that the maritime authority did not inform him if there were going to be any special changes in tonight’s weather; but how could he explain this?
Ten minutes later, the clouds in the sky became thicker. Not only that, the sea waves also gradually grew up; the sea gradually lost its original calm.
Chapter 178 Wind Part 2
The increasing fluctuation of the ship made the people in the cabin lost their drowsiness. The students strangely looked outside at those thick black clouds.
“Is it going to rain?”
“I think so.”
“This is really a bad luck, why would it suddenly rain when we travel?”
Compared to those students who moaned about their situation, Lei Yin’s face was much more serious. He was not afraid of the rain, he just worried that this rain was not going to be so simple.
After another five minutes, the waves on the surface of the sea became even larger. A faint trace of rain floated into the cabin mixed with the sea breeze.
“Hateful, it’s really raining. Hey, you quickly close the window.”
“How could a nice weather suddenly change and begin to rain?”
“Hey, what’s going on with you? Your face does not look good.”
“I, I want to throw up.”
“Don’t vomit here, quickly go to the washroom.”
Because the ship was rocking harder, several students in the cabin began to feel dizzy.
“Lei, what’s going on?” Being awoken by the shaking of the ship, Amy rubbed her eyes and asked.
“It’s okay, it’s nothing but rain.” Lei Yin took her in his arms and comforted her.
At this time, in the bridge, the 50-something years old Captain’s face nervously added the speed of the ship to its max.
He has been able to affirm that this was definitely a seasonal storm, and it was a big storm.
The seasonal storm was the ship second most feared weather phenomena after Typhoon. Because, compared to the observable large-scale Typhoon, they were created by the sudden fluctuation in sea temperature differences, but they usually happened most often in the months of Spring and Summer.
After years spending his life on the sea, the Captain was well aware of how terrible this storm was. If it was a large or super large ship, this storm will only cause the hull of the ship to swing, and there won’t be any danger. But this ship was only a small-medium passenger ship, if it encountered big waves, then it cannot be taken as a joke. So now, the only solution was to take the fastest speed to rush to the shelter on the nearby Island.
As the rain continued to strengthen, as well as the increasing amplitude of the hull swing, the Teikyo University students with several other tourists clearly felt that this was not going to be a simple drop of rain.
Looking out at the black environment as well as the constantly turning up large waves, a lot of people started to show panic look in their eyes.
Before taking part in this trip, most of them were just ordinary young people living in the metropolis of Tokyo, when would they ever saw the power of nature.
Just as the Captain predicted, this was a big storm. Later, most of the people on the ship have to hold on something, or they simply cannot stand on the cabin. Strong winds howled outside the window, creating loud noises. The hull constantly swung up and down just like the Pirate Ship ride in the Amusement Park, except, no one felt fun in this one.
Most people lost interest in talking, all of them turned pale as they clutched the armrests to keep their body fixed in place. Some female students could not help holding the handrail side crying out loud together. They just came here to travel and have fun, who would have thought that they will encounter this unlucky thing.
On the outside, dark clouds wrapped the whole sky, looking like it was 7 or 8 in the evening. Watching the environment outside, the Captain decisively turned off the engine. To continue the journey in such a low visibility was a very stupid act. Because it was possible for the ship to unknowingly bump into some dark reef. Now the only thing one can do was to wait for the storm to past. Assuming, of course, the ship has not been overturned.
“Lei, I am afraid.” This was the first time the little girl encountered such a situation and could not help but be scared.
“Don’t worry, it will be alright.” Lei Yin softly comforted her.
“Em.” The little girl replied with a sound and then quietly shrunk to his arms.
Suddenly remembered something, he stood up and, with one hand holding the little girl while the other hand holding on the window frame, slowly walked to the cabin’s front door.
Many students sitting on the chairs looked at him strangely, they did not understand what he wanted to do.
Lei Yin went to the ship front locker, knelt down and opened the cupboard and, sure enough, saw that it was filled with red-orange life jackets. He immediately took one out and put it on Amy, and then he put one on himself.
Because the cabin constantly shook, it took him nearly five minutes to put on the life jackets on the little girl’s body, as well as his body. After they put that on, he walked back to his original seat while holding on the window frame. He then said to the other students: “There are life jackets here, if you want to put them on, you can put it yourself.”
Hearing his words, several students immediately came over and took the life jackets.
After arriving at their seats, Lei Yin pulled out two life jackets and threw them toward the elderly US couple. That elderly couple very gratefully thanked him and immediately put on the life jackets.
“Lei, this dress is so beautiful.” Amy liked the bright color of the life jacket very much.
Hearing this, Lei Yin could not help but burst out laughing. Apparently, she was not afraid anymore.
At this time, the hull was badly shaking, it felt like it was about to turn over. This time, not only the girls, even the boys could not help but cry. These young people who usually posed as elite students, for the first time, felt the threat of death and consequently, lose their head.
At the same time, from the front came the sound of a heavy crash, and then there was a pitiful yell of a middle-aged man. But after that, there was no longer any sound.
Hearing the scream, everyone did not know what was going on in the front, but no one wanted to see. When everyone’s lives were at stake, how could they have the time for others?
Seeing how almost everyone in the cabin shrieked and howled loudly, and then looked at the little girl who tightly shrunk herself in his arms like a kitten, he can only helplessly wait for the storm to past. Fortunately, the fluorescent light inside the cabin shone as normal, or there would be more panic.
After an unknown amount of time, the feeling of violently shaking forever finally stopped slowly. This also meant that the storm has passed.
After passing this calamity, everyone slowly stood up. In determining that the storm was really over, everyone excitedly cheered.
Lei Yin took Amy to the bridge in the front and saw a fifty-something years old man lying on the floor, blood constantly oozed out of his forehead. The ground was flooded with rainwater from the cabin door that was blown open.
Just as Lei Yin previously speculated, the previous scream came from the Captain.
After squatting down to check on his injury, Lei Yin found that his head was violently hit by an object, causing him to have a concussion which led to him being unconscious.
After helping him made a simple wrap around his injury, Lei Yin looked out of the bridge window, and all he saw was an endless sea.
He immediately tried the radio that was equipped on the ship, but there was no reaction at all, perhaps because it was soaked in the rain.
This is bad, he simply did not know where the ship was located.
Lei Yin wryly smiled, maybe this educational trip will turn into a modern version of The Life And Strange Surprising Adventures Of Robinson Crusoe.
