Chapter 26:

What Needs To Be Done

Wolf Bloodline

Babu looked at the King,Bookmark here

"Why do you not save them when you know where they are?"Bookmark here

"Unfortunately, it's not that easy. And many times before, I tried to get my people out of this disgusting dump. But I couldn't. I couldn't save my people. They have a lot of power, and they protect almost everywhere. It's not hard to get in from the outside, but it's almost impossible to get out again with so many people. But the worst part is that they're being watched by a creature with a guard."Bookmark here

"The First Epic put a very powerful guard there and a creature that enjoyed smashing it to make it impossible for people there to escape. The guard's name is Izzar, almost as strong as the first elite soldier. He uses a large scythe as a weapon. And he also has his own special power. He can make hundreds of copies of himself."Bookmark here

Hiroshi scratched his head and said,Bookmark here

"And how long can he use these clones?"Bookmark here

"He can hold fifty copies for an hour. Maybe more than I think."Bookmark here

"What about the creature you're talking about?"Bookmark here

"It's like a big dog, but It has more pointed teeth and It's a more aggressive creature than any other. He can easily smell blood from ten kilometers away."Bookmark here

I said, "Are there other difficult enemies besides them?"Bookmark here

"No, there are only ordinary soldiers, but that's not all the problems. There's a warning system there. If we attack there directly, reinforcements will arrive as soon as we attack. If we make a fuss we might have to face an Elite soldier or even an Epic. If they arrive, we can't do anything."Bookmark here

An idea suddenly came to my mind,Bookmark here

"What happens if we try to sneak in?"Bookmark here

"And how do you plan to do this?"Bookmark here

"One of us who will volunteer can camouflage by wearing prisoner's clothes."Bookmark here

"We can't do that, Kid. Even if you go in there and don't get noticed by security, the prisoners will recognize you. We cant do this plan."Bookmark here

He was right we had to make another plan. I thought I wasn't going to find any ideas but then I remembered something,Bookmark here

"What if Babu-san enters there?"Bookmark here

Babu looked at me confused,Bookmark here

"Me, why?"Bookmark here

"Because my fluffy friend, they don't know you're with us, and you're not wanted. I'm sure no one will suspect you."Bookmark here

"Well, What do I do when I go in?"Bookmark here

"If you can disarm the alarm from the inside, no help will arrive, there will be no support, and that means we can easily attack."Bookmark here

Leader looked at us,Bookmark here

"He can't do it alone from the inside, the alarm system is where the guard is staying, and at the entrance to where he's staying, that creature is standing."Bookmark here

"Yes, the leader is absolutely right, I can't do this alone. I don't know what exactly I should do."Bookmark here

After some thinking, the leader looked at Babu,Bookmark here

"But you can help."Bookmark here

Babu looked confused once more,Bookmark here

"What do you mean?"Bookmark here

"There are pipes under the mines. Ryuu and the others can get from outside to inside using these pipes. If you open the entrance to the pipes from the inside. They can easily enter."Bookmark here

"But, what are we supposed to do after that?"Bookmark here

"After that, you definitely need to do two things. Turn off the alarm and free my people from the chains. When my people are free from the chains, they will regain their power."Bookmark here

This time Lezlie got confused and asked the leader,Bookmark here

"Your powers, arent your people normal humans, Leader?"Bookmark here

"No, we're not, young lady. We are a bloodline with the power to change our skin. For warmth in the cold, for cooling in the heat, and for many different reasons, we can change our skin. We can also make sure that our skin doesn't show up to other people, even for a short time. As you call this being "invisible". "Bookmark here

Lezlie said,Bookmark here

"Like a chameleon."Bookmark here

"Yeah, you could say that too. My people are bound by magic chains, so they can't use their power. If you can release them, their power will return. I am sure."Bookmark here

"So all we have to do is secretly turn off the alarm when we go in, free the people of your bloodline from the magical handcuffs, and try to escape as easily as possible."Bookmark here

"Are capable of doing that for me?"Bookmark here

Hiroshi lit his cigar, slowly took one sip, and said,Bookmark here

"We are going to try."Bookmark here

"As I said, If you try to attack, you will risk your life. Try to be as discreet as possible."Bookmark here

Lezlie said,Bookmark here

"Maybe if you use the Three Kings system, The King of the first Kingdom will help you."Bookmark here

"It used to be like that, no one cares about the Three Kings system anymore. Even the kings."Bookmark here

I said, "What is the Three Kings system?"Bookmark here

"According to my mother, it used to be called the system of two kings, but this was before the epics came. King Einar made a deal with the people at the head of the lineages to bring peace to all the five kingdoms. According to the agreement, whatever the problems of the lineage, King Einar will help solve the problems. And did it that way. In return, they put an end to the lineage wars by doing what the King wanted. Thanks to this Constitution, peace, and happiness continued in the five kingdoms.Bookmark here

This continued until the King died and the epics came. The epics changed the Constitution, using their power to perpetuate their chaos. They considered themselves kings, calling themselves "The Three Kings." And changed the system's name to The Three King system. No one knows where the epics came from, or who they took orders from."Bookmark here

"What you say is true, but we are no longer considered kings. We are known only as "leaders" who govern our lineage."Bookmark here

I said, "Can't Kings really do anything?"Bookmark here

The Leader looked at me,Bookmark here

"No, even Kings don't know what epics can do. That's why they're afraid of them. If chaos takes over as before, this time every lineage, every human being is going to die."Bookmark here

Hiroshi said, "Then there's no point in wasting time, is there?"Bookmark here

Leader said, "I trust all of you on this. Be careful on your mission."Bookmark here

Babu said, "Also how far is the mine from here?"Bookmark here

"Not much, I can order my men to take you there. But I can't go with you, I have to keep my people safe."Bookmark here

"Thank you again for your help."Bookmark here

"No need to thank me. Just bring my people back. Our revenge depends on you."Bookmark here
