Chapter 25:

Among The Mountains

Wolf Bloodline

We crossed multiple Plains and mountains on a horse-drawn carriage. It was quite an intense and arduous journey. Because of the bad storm and the troubled roads, we almost lost the car many times but eventually crossing the difficult roads, we reached the nest of the Cronus Bloodline.Bookmark here

I was excited, so I went in front of the carriage to see what it was like where we got there. I was so surprised by what I saw. Their home was a big castle in the mountains. And the most beautiful thing was the waterfall that went down from the top of the mountain next to the castle. The water was so clear and beautiful.Bookmark here

The castle was surrounded by trees planted later. It seemed like the perfect place to live. Babu and Lezlie were quite surprised when they saw this place, but Hiroshi, wasn't impressed, as usual.Bookmark here

When the carriage arrived at the front of the castle, the driver shouted,Bookmark here

"Open the door! I brought supplies from the city."Bookmark here

After the men above the castle noticed us, one of them told the driver with a harsh tone,Bookmark here

"No strangers can be brought here. Take them back now."Bookmark here

"They want to talk with the leader, about The Epic and The Elite Soldiers."Bookmark here

"If our leader Suramu doesn't like this idea, you and your friends will suffer the consequences. And don't forget, I'm not doing this because I trust them, but because I'm looking for hope in our war."Bookmark here

Then he shouted,Bookmark here

"OPEN THE DOOR!"Bookmark here

The gate of the huge castle began to open slowly. We slowly entered there. After a short time, the driver stopped the carriage,Bookmark here

"Here we are, the one and indestructible Kingdom of the Bloodline of Cronus."Bookmark here

"Thank you for putting your life on the line so we could get in there, and for protecting us. We won't make you regret it."Bookmark here

The driver shook his head. He approved of me. After that conversation, we got out of the horse-drawn carriage and followed the driver into the castle. Before entering the castle, at the entrance to the gate, they searched all of us. We had to leave our weapons and dangerous items at the entrance.Bookmark here

Hiroshi stared angrily at the person which he left his gun with,Bookmark here

"If anything happens to this gun, you can be sure I will remember you."Bookmark here

Finally, we entered the castle, the inside of the castle was larger than the outside. It was pretty bright and clean. There were expensive works of art around. The man that let us in guided us to the Leader's room. We slowly moved towards the leader's room. It was the first time I'd ever seen a leader of a Bloodline. I wonder if he was as strong as an epic or even a real king. I was very curious about getting the answer to that.Bookmark here

As I thought about it, we arrived at the leader's door. The man opened the door,Bookmark here

"Come in, the leader is waiting for you."Bookmark here

When we entered, the leader's room, the leader was in front of us. He was sitting on his throne, and he had a table in front of him. When he saw us, he stood up and said,Bookmark here

"Welcome, I am Sumaru, the fourth leader of the Cronus Bloodline. One of my people told me about you. He said you wanted to talk to me about something about the epics. I brought you here to hear it from you. So what do you people want."Bookmark here

"We've been on the road for a long time and we're looking for a group of people. We're looking for people who will fight us and stand by us without fear. It can sound beyond nonsense, but we need help from people like you."Bookmark here

"Well then, what kind of help do you want from me?"Bookmark here

"The army of the First Epic is quite crowded. Too much, even for the four of us. So join our war with the people of your lineage and help us put an end to The First Epic's evil plans."Bookmark here

The leader then made a sign to us to sit down with,Bookmark here

"Sit down, let's talk a little bit."Bookmark here

After we sat down he started to talk,Bookmark here

"First, as much as I want to put an end to the bad ruling of the First Epic, I can not do that. Secondly, even if we fight with you, it's obvious that we can't win if with an army. And thirdly, I don't even know who you are or what you're capable of. "Bookmark here

"I can understand that if you don't trust us, but I can't ask anyone else for help."Bookmark here

I looked at him, In way of needing help.Bookmark here

"Well then, what bloodline do you come from?"Bookmark here

"I'm sorry, but I can't share it with everyone."Bookmark here

"You come here and ask for help from a leader you don't know, but you don't trust him enough to say your bloodline. How can I fight beside you like this?"Bookmark here

I took a breath,Bookmark here

"I'm a descendent of the Wolf."Bookmark here

The leader's expression turned into a much serious and surprised one,Bookmark here

A man beside The man who opened the door, looked at me as if I was crazy,Bookmark here

"These lunatics are trying to trick you. The Wolf bloodline is extinct, and there's no way they're alive. That's all."Bookmark here

After his words, I turned around and took his sword, and held it to his throat. It was in the blink of an eye. Hiroshi stood up from his seat,Bookmark here

"Hey, kid, it's not worth it, let's go."Bookmark here

Leaving the man and the sword, we made our way to the exit without saying anything. As we were about to left the room, the leader shouted,Bookmark here

"I'll listen to your offer. But there are things I want you to explain to me."Bookmark here

We turned around and sat back,Bookmark here

"You two, leave us alone for a bit." The leader said,Bookmark here

The men who guarded the door left the room, then we started to talk,Bookmark here

"I believe you are a wolf descendant. As for your offer, having a wolf descendant could change the course of the war. Given that your friends are strong, there's still hope to win the war. But that may not be enough."Bookmark here

Hiroshi lit his cigar and said,Bookmark here

"Then what's on your mind?Bookmark here

"A long time ago, the First Epic, due to the increase in population in my kingdom, was afraid of losing the war. Because of this, he destroyed my previous Kingdom and captured many of my warriors. I've lost dozens, hundreds of my comrades. He forces many of my people, whom he has taken prisoners, to find valuable items such as diamonds, rubies or gold, and to work them in the mines.Bookmark here

But he does it just for fun. He's afraid of losing in Battle, of losing his rule. If we save the people of my bloodline from there, we will be very strong in battle."Bookmark here
