Chapter 17:

Fluffy Doctor

Wolf Bloodline

After leaving the wise, the Wise said that he would soon announce our plan to all the people here. But before that, we had to prepare for the escape plan. Hiroshi needed more gunpowder.Bookmark here

The Wise said where we could find the gunpowder, so we made our way there in no time. As I was driving there, I wasn't looking ahead, and that's when I hit something fluffy. It didn't hurt, it was just that my map fell out of my bag due to the impact.Bookmark here

When I picked up my map, the map showed that the black dot was right in front of me. That meant the person I was looking for was right in front of me. When I put the map in my bag and looked in front of me, I saw something very interesting. The person in front of me was a panda. Yeah, a fluffy one, a panda with clothes on, and a fisherman's hat on his head.Bookmark here

He stood in front of us and raised his hat slightly. He had a really cute face. He smiled and said,Bookmark here

"I'm sorry, I didn't see you passing, Are you all right?"Bookmark here

"No, no, I'm fine, thanks for asking."Bookmark here

"As a paramedic, my priority is always the health of other people."Bookmark here

He then looked us surprised,Bookmark here

"Wait a minute! I've never seen you here before! Are you the people they're talking about from above?"Bookmark here

"I guess. We got here one day ago. To be honest, we're looking for a way out."Bookmark here

"I don't want you to get me wrong, but I'd like to ask you something. In the entire kingdom, How did you manage to fall into a hole surrounded by huge rocks?"Bookmark here

"It's a long story, and actually our goal wasn't to get in here. We were here to look for someone."Bookmark here

"So what kind of person are you looking for?"Bookmark here

"We are looking for a person who will fight us fearlessly against the Epics."Bookmark here

Panda laughed,Bookmark here

"I'm sorry, I'm sorry, but I don't think you'll find anyone like that here. People here are not very interested in war."Bookmark here

"But it points to you on the map."Bookmark here

"I'm the one standing in front of you, yes, but I'm a healer, not a fighter."Bookmark here

I took my map out of my bag and showed it to him.Bookmark here

"According to the map, you're the one we're looking for. I've already asked if the map is likely to be wrong, but I've heard that such a thing is not possible."Bookmark here

He took the map and said,Bookmark here

"I know this map, it's a very rare piece. They say the map shows you where you want to go, or a person that you need. Where you found this?"Bookmark here

"My uncle gave it to me for my birthday."Bookmark here

"I understand, but what I don't understand is that thanks to this map, you can become rich and do many things, but instead you come to a forgotten place and ask my help to fight the epics. Well, can you tell me why?"Bookmark here

"There are many reasons, but the most important thing for me is to save lives just like you. I want to help people and all lineages. I want to show that there's still hope in the world, but I can't do it alone, so I need your help."Bookmark here

"Come in, let's talk before the wise give his speech."Bookmark here

We went to where he lived. Compared to his body structure, the house was quite narrow. After we all sat down somewhere, the panda looked at us,Bookmark here

"I don't want to waste your time, but I would like to tell you a few things about myself."Bookmark here

"A long time ago, when I was a child, I had no one. I wasn't from a lineage, I didn't know who my family was or where I came from."Bookmark here

Hiroshi-san looked at him surprised,Bookmark here

"I thought you were a Halfet."Bookmark here

Haflet's are the lineage that has half-humans and half-animal people in it.Bookmark here

"I thought so, too, but I'm not."Bookmark here

He then smiled and said, "I'm just a fluffy panda talking. I don't have human symptoms."Bookmark here

Lezlie said,Bookmark here

"Well, what happened to you then Panda-san?"Bookmark here

"People have ostracized me. I was sure I was going to die of starvation or something, I always fought to survive. I was like a murderous creature. But then a person came along. And he took me in. He was a kind-hearted healer known to everyone, but he was also very talented in combat. He fed me, taught me all his knowledge about healing and many things about surviving. Whenever I asked him why he did this, he always laughed and said,"Bookmark here

"Every living being has the right to live. This applies even to an insect or plant. No matter what, they must also taste the beauty of life."Bookmark here

"After that word, I wanted to help people like him, all other living things with my healing knowledge. And then I came back here. when I first arrived, there was no trouble, it was a fairly quiet place, whenever people were injured during the excavation, I helped them with the information that my master showed me. But it didn't stay the same forever, from a place they were digging, an unknown dark and cold pit came appeared. This pit was really deep. They entered the pit anyways, but they had no idea what they were facing.Bookmark here

The creatures attacked them, I tried to save the people here as much as I could, but they were too crowded, and they were pretty fast. So we retreated here. After that, unknown people covered the hole. No one knows we're alive or dead. And no one came to save us. At this rate, we'll die of food shortages or the mine collapsing on us."Bookmark here

I said, "So Panda-san, how long have you been here?"Bookmark here

"Two years."Bookmark here

Hiroshi-san said, "Two years is quite a long time. And does your master know that you are here?"Bookmark here

"I sent him letters, but I haven't received a return from anyone in a long time. We tried to get out of here many times, but unfortunately, we couldn't succeed."Bookmark here

I got up from where I was sitting,Bookmark here

"We have an idea to get out of here, but we need your help and the people here."Bookmark here

"Help? What can you ask me for?"Bookmark here

"While we distract the creatures, these people need protection."Bookmark here

His eyes shined with happiness,Bookmark here

"I understand now! Well, then what's your plan?"Bookmark here

"My friends and I will distract them, buy you time to dig the tunnel at the entrance to the door. You'll get out of there easily. But someone has to protect people, and if you do, we'll be very grateful."Bookmark here

"You can trust me on this, but how will you get out of here?"Bookmark here

"By using the holes, of course."Bookmark here

"The holes are almost ten meters high, how are you going to reach there?"Bookmark here

"If Hiroshi-san can get as much gunpowder as he needs, we can do it with a little power."Bookmark here

"Even if we do these things, the creatures can come out, which would be very dangerous for us."Bookmark here

Hiroshi said, "That's why we're not going to use gunpowder just to escape. We're also going to blow this place up, that's the only way we're going to get out."Bookmark here

"I understand that. Of course, I can help you in this situation, but I have a request for you."Bookmark here

Hiroshi-san sighed, "What's it?"Bookmark here

"For this time, I want to give you the task of protecting people to you. What I want to do is come with you and help distracting those monsters."Bookmark here

Lezlie-san said, "If you want, I can fulfill Panda-San's request."Bookmark here

Hiroshi glanced at the panda from head to toe with his eyes and said,Bookmark here

"A piece of land that will throw us into the air may be a little weak for your weight, but with a little more gunpowder, it can be done."Bookmark here

I then remembered and said,Bookmark here

"Oh, I'm sorry I forgot to introduce us."Bookmark here

"I'm Ryuu, This is Hiroshi-san and This is Lezlie-san."Bookmark here

He said with a cute tone and a soft tone, "Nice to meet you, I'm Babu."Bookmark here

"So Babu-san I want to ask again, would you like to come with us it would be so good to have a healer like you."Bookmark here

"I would consider that, and also I have to revisit my master."Bookmark here
