Chapter 18:

Liberation Speech

Wolf Bloodline

After we finished talking to Babu, we split into two groups. While Me and Hiroshi went to get the gunpowder, Lezlie and Babu returned to inform the wise. When Hiroshi and I went to buy some gunpowder, Hiroshi looked at me and said,Bookmark here

"Hey kid, are you sure that we can trust him?"Bookmark here

"Are you talking about him being a fluffy panda?"Bookmark here

"No, I've never seen a species like this before. He only has animal qualities, but he can also talk and move like a normal human."Bookmark here

"Pretty interesting, isn't it? But the important thing is that he came here and helped people, and that's a pretty good way of behaving."Bookmark here

He laughed and said, "Yes, quite interesting. I wonder how he fights that belly."Bookmark here

I then laughed too and said, "Actually I don't want to lie I want to see that too."Bookmark here

We then both bursted into laughter.Bookmark here

I said confidently, "Don't worry, Hiroshi-san, The people here are really kind. I'm sure he's as kind as they are."Bookmark here

After a short walk, we arrived at the gunpowder shop. The shop was quite small.Bookmark here

Before I entered the store, Hiroshi-san looked at me. He then looked at the cigar in his mouth he immediately threw his cigar out of his mouth. We then entered the shop,Bookmark here

"Welcome to Teren's Gunpowder shop! How can I help you?"Bookmark here

Hiroshi looked at him and said,Bookmark here

"Give your best shot partner, we are not here to lose time."Bookmark here

The store then said,Bookmark here

"Then follow me and I will show you the best ones."Bookmark here

Teren opened the barrel in front of him with his crowbar,Bookmark here

"This gunpowder is from the second kingdom, It's called the "Red Bomb", you can easily detonate many things, but it is not strong enough against Iron."Bookmark here

Hiroshi took the gunpowder in his hand, examined the Gunpowder, then he turned his head to Teren again,Bookmark here

"What else you got?"Bookmark here

Teren opened another barrel,Bookmark here

"And this from the third kingdom, It's called "Black Death," it can blow up a lot of things, including iron."Bookmark here

"How much damage it can do?"Bookmark here

"in two-pound, it can reach eight or ten meters."Bookmark here

"We can use it to escape, but it's still not enough to shut this place down completely. Give us the heaviest thing you've got."Bookmark here

Teren opened the final barrel,Bookmark here

"Then this is what you are looking for, this Gunpowder is something from the fourth kingdom, it's called "Disaster." Even a kilo can completely blow up this big cave."Bookmark here

"Then we are taking this."Bookmark here

"So, is that all you want?"Bookmark here

"I'm taking it all."Bookmark here

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Bookmark here

When Ryuu-san and Hiroshi-san went to get the Gunpowder we needed, Babu-san and I arrived at the wise. And everyone living in the cave had gathered in the square for the wise's speech.Bookmark here

Babu-san and I decided to wait until the sage's speech was over. After a short wait, The Wise appeared before his people. People here were respecting the wise a lot, when they saw him, they immediately began to applaud.Bookmark here

As the applause ended, Wise began to speak,Bookmark here

"As you know, three people recently fell here in our cave and said they would help us get out of here. But the important thing is to cooperate with them as much as you can while they help us. If we cooperate with them. We can get out of here."Bookmark here

then someone from the public shouted,Bookmark here

"It's too dangerous out there, and if we get out, the shadow bloodline will kill us first!"Bookmark here

Another person shouted in the middle of the public,Bookmark here

"Yes, he's right, if we leave they will kill us without mercy! just like our brothers who died!"Bookmark here

All of a sudden, everyone started talking about how dangerous it was out there, and running away was a bad idea. Wise made a signal with his hand to his people to be quiet,Bookmark here

"Listen, if we don't do this, we're going to starve here very soon, or the cave could collapse on us at any moment. I know it's dangerous, but we have no choice but to do it.Bookmark here

"Listen, we've been suffering from food shortages for a very long time, and also this cave is on the verge of collapse. I know it's dangerous, but we have no choice but to do it.Bookmark here

A member of the public suddenly came forward,Bookmark here

"Do you promise that if we do this, we will survive, we will succeed, Wise-san?"Bookmark here

Wise was in a very difficult situation. I knew I had to help, I approached him and started talking,Bookmark here

"Will you please listen to me?"Bookmark here

Everyone stopped talking and looked at me,Bookmark here

"I know everyone is worried and scared about something. I can understand how difficult your situation is, but this time give the wise's opinion a chance. Of course, I can't promise you, but if you believe us, it will be very helpful for us. And if you can help as much as you can, that will be enough for us."Bookmark here

Then Babu approached and talked with a very slow and soft tone,Bookmark here

Everyone everyone, calm down. I know it's hard to take it all in. But it is what it is. We have to trust them for this once. They are not untrustable people like you think. They are kind and trustable people. I want all of you to trust me and them. Also, I need all of you to work with us.Bookmark here

At the time, someone from the public came forward,Bookmark here

"Babu saved my son, and if Babu believes in them, I believe in them."Bookmark here

After these words, people came forward one after another, without stopping,Bookmark here

"Babu saved my mother."Bookmark here

"Babu saved my Brother"Bookmark here

"Babu saved my father."Bookmark here

"Babu saved my family."Bookmark here

"If Babu trusts you, so do we!"Bookmark here

People applauded and shouted, the wise looked at me and smiled,Bookmark here

"You solved the problem just like your mother, and I'm sure she'd be proud of you if she was here now."Bookmark here

"Thank you, Wise-san."Bookmark here

"No, thank you, you have given my people hope again."Bookmark here
