Hiroshi-san, Lezlie-san, and I were ready to go. When we got to the entrance of the village of witches, everyone in the village gathered there to say goodbye to us. We rode our horses slowly through them. The chief came with my map in his hand,
"I have broken the seal of the map, and now it will take you to the person or place you want, as you want."
"Thank you again, Chief-san, your people and you have been very helpful to us."
"The same applies to us, you have helped a lot. My last request is that you take good care of Lezlie."
"I promise we'll take care of her, and I hope you find a new place to live in no time."
"Today we will evacuate and I am sure we will see each other again, but until then goodbye, Wolf-descendant Ryuu."
After the chief's words, we rode our horses out of there. I was happy to meet people like them. Lezlie turned around and smiled sincerely looked at her village, then looked at us.
"Ahh, Ryuu-san, I wonder where are we heading to?"
I was going to open my map and see where we should go, but I was surprised by what I saw. I've never seen a map like this before. I saw that we appeared on the map as a red dot, and the dot was moving as we were moving.
Then a black dot appeared. I knew the black dot was where I wanted to go. Because the black dot didn't move as we did, and the map drew a route to the black dot. I looked at them,
"The map shows a certain route at the moment, it would be better for us to follow that route for now."
We turned our horses East and kept riding,
-(At that time) The Castle Of The First Epic-
One of the soldiers entered the epic's room,
"Sir, your elite soldier number three, Jixus, has returned."
First Epic, sat on the throne,
"All right, I want him here, right now."
Jixus, wounded and exhausted, enters the epic's room,
"Sir, I'm sorry to say this but I couldn't take her, and also Nozu has died."
The First Epic was really angry at this situation, he quickly got up from his throne,
"Incompetents! You couldn't kidnap a woman from a witch's village without any power!"
"Sir, it wasn't the witches."
"SO WHAT WAS THE PROBLEM?"
"In an instant, two people appeared in the middle of the war, they had an unstoppable power. Especially the young one, he was fighting as if he was living for fighting. And I heard that these two people were the ones who defeated our fifth elite soldier."
Epic looked at Jixus with furious eyes,
"I don't care who they are! put high rewards on their heads and make this reward heard everywhere in the first Kingdom, And also I want you to leave the young one alive."
"Why, Sir. He's not as weak as he looks, catching him is not as easy as he looks!"
"If he's as strong as you say, he could be the one Miron's looking for. Inform the first and second elite soldiers. Let them go looking for them."
"Sir, are we going to take the situation this far, these two are monsters."
"They're just trying to intimidate us. Find them, now!"
(Jixus leaves there to fulfill the first epic's duties. Epic, sitting on the throne again,)
"I hope he's the child Miron is looking for, or he'll destroy the entire kingdom."
-24 Hours Later-
-An Unknown Place In The East Of The First Kingdom-
After a long way on the horses, we slowed down a little. Lezlie looked at me,
"Ummm, Ryuu-san, When I was in the village, watching you fight, you were fighting with powers that normal people can't have, maybe it's not appropriate for me to ask, but do you come from a lineage?"
"Yes, I'm a wolf descendant. But I just discovered it, just like you did. That's why I can't use much of my power."
"Also, Hiroshi-san, you were quite strong there too, do you also come from a lineage?"
Hiroshi-san lit the cigar in his mouth,
"I'm not a descendant, I'm a Ruiet."
Ruiet? I was hearing that word for the first time,
"What does that means Hiroshi-san?"
"It means normal humans like me."
As we spoke, we saw something in front of our path, many trees and stones blocking our way. We could have entered comfortably, but it was impossible for horses to enter, Hiroshi-san looked at his right and left,
"I think we can go around it."
"Hiroshi-san, we can't do this, the map says we have to continue from here."
Lezlie looked at the horses,
"Then we must leave the horses. Otherwise, we can't get through here."
We got off our horses and moved on. The path we entered was quite narrow, so we walked slowly, in a single row. Hiroshi was in front. I was in the middle, and Lezlie was behind me.
After walking briefly, Hiroshi made the wait sign by raising his hand in the air. Lezlie and I stood after Hiroshi's sign. After Hiroshi looked at the ground, he immediately turned his head to us,
"It's not safe here....."
After Hiroshi said that, the floor broke below us, and suddenly we fell down. After the floor broke, we were sliding down with something like a tube. We couldn't stop ourselves or hold on to anything. The slide suddenly split to the right and left.
Me and Lezlie entered to the left of the slide, but Hiroshi entered to the right of the slide. When the slide was over, we were in the air and about to crash, so I hugged Lezlie and took her on top of me so she wouldn't get hurt. When we hit the ground, there was dust and smoke everywhere.
When Lezlie saw me hugging her, she blushed and got up.
"Th- Thank you... Ryuu-san."
"No problem. But we landed very fast."
I slowly got up and looked around.
"Where... are..... we?"
