Chapter 28:

The Entrance At The Pipes

Wolf Bloodline

Together with the prisoner who helped me, we were looking for a way to open the doors to their pipes.Bookmark here

Together we went deep into the mine. After running for a while, we reached the depths of the mine. It was darker and wetter than the other areas we were in. The prisoner told me that the soldiers were not on guard in this area because there was only one entrance here,Bookmark here

In short, only the entrance area was on guard. In addition, many of the soldiers inside were distracted by the commotion caused by the prisoner.Bookmark here

That made our job pretty easy. But the prisoner was still very cautious and slow, he led the way but he was still checking out if there was someone.Bookmark here

I said to him quietly,Bookmark here

"When do the soldiers come back here?"Bookmark here

"In half an hour, but if we do this quickly, we can do what we want before they get here."Bookmark here

"Alright, but let me ask you something if you know where these pipes are, why didn't you run away?"Bookmark here

"If you can't escape these pipes with so many people, we'll be caught very quickly. But that's not the only problem, the problem is the guard, no matter who gets out of the prisoners. Somehow he knows. I guess it is because of a spell in the chains, I'm not sure, but as soon as we get out, we suffer the punishments of the keeper."Bookmark here

"No one escaped from here?"Bookmark here

"Only one person was able to escape, but he was not of our bloodline. It was too fast for the keeper to catch. People here called him Trev. The wrath of the loop, Trev."Bookmark here

"Oooh, I see, he's got a really impressive story."Bookmark here

"Anyway, Do you really think your friends will come?"Bookmark here

"I am pretty sure they will. We just have to wait patiently."Bookmark here

"How can you be so sure?"Bookmark here

"Let's call it instinct."Bookmark here

As we were running, he suddenly stopped,Bookmark here

"Here we are, The Pipes."Bookmark here

"Okay, but how do we open the doors?"Bookmark here

"Get in the right corner, lower the lever when I give the signal."Bookmark here

As he said, I got in the right corner and started to wait in front of the lever. He turned his head to me and said,Bookmark here

"The levers need to be pulled at the same time, so when I say three, we open them."Bookmark here

"Got it."Bookmark here

"One, two, three!"Bookmark here

As he said three, we pulled the levers at the same time, and the entrance to the pipes opened slowly. Three people appeared from the dark side of the pipes. Ryuu and the others arrived just in time.Bookmark here

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

When we got to Babu, he had a prisoner with him. It was as if he was working with the prisoner. Babu looked at us and said,Bookmark here

"Ryuu-Kun, The Soldiers will be here any minute, so we have to be fast."Bookmark here

"We have to go to the guard's room to open the handcuffs. Did you find out where it was?"Bookmark here

The prisoner approached us and said,Bookmark here

"You don't need to know that, I know where the room is."Bookmark here

Lezlie said,Bookmark here

"Is there any chance you can take us there?"Bookmark here

"Yes, but we have to be careful, even if the guard is not in the room, the creature usually wanders around the room."Bookmark here

Hiroshi said, "It's ok. Let's start moving, we don't have time to lose."Bookmark here

When we finished talking, we started following the prisoner. As we ran, we heard a few soldiers approaching us. After that, everyone hid somewhere.Bookmark here

So I quickly jumped up to the ceiling. I hung by holding the stones in the ceiling. The soldiers slowly went by walking under me. I let myself go when they turned their back. I quickly knocked them out.Bookmark here

Hiroshi looked at me and said,Bookmark here

"You could have waited for them to pass."Bookmark here

I said smiling,Bookmark here

"You're right, but it's more fun this way."Bookmark here

We managed to get to the room after walking quietly for a short time. But we had a big problem. The predatory creature, which looked like a giant dog, was laying in front of the door.Bookmark here

Hiroshi said what to do with hand signals without making a sound.Bookmark here

He told Lezlie and the prisoner to stay here. And he asked me and Babu to follow him.Bookmark here

We did what he said and followed him. As we were passing the creature, we were also incredibly close to it. I was able to smell the creature's breath.Bookmark here

Hiroshi told Babu to lift the creature with him, so we could get through the door.Bookmark here

Babu at first was kinda scared and it was pretty dangerous, But he knew if Hiroshi told him to do it, he definitely knew he had something on his mind.Bookmark here

Babu and Hiroshi managed to lift the creature a little. Right after that, Hiroshi signaled me to go under it with his head. I then jumped under the creature and began to crawl towards the door of the room.Bookmark here

For a moment, when the creature growled, I thought it was up. but fortunately, the creature didn't wake up. I crawled to the door and went in. There was only one seat inside.Bookmark here

There was also a bed, except for the chair. I couldn't tell if it was the right room because it was like a holding room. I was looking around for a totem to break the spell so I could free the prisoners from the chain.Bookmark here

And I knew If the chains of all the prisoners in this mine were magical, the spells were probably written on a totem too.Bookmark here

Because totems are generally an item to used to keep spells intact. If you put the seal symbol on any object, after you cast the spell, spells can't be broken until the seal is broken.Bookmark here

Because of this, I thought there was probably a totem. At that moment, I saw a written totem on the floor, Just as I expected. As I made my way to the totem, a sound came from the shadows of the room.Bookmark here

"You shouldn't be here."Bookmark here

I got scared and jumped back,Bookmark here

"Who's there! Who are you?"Bookmark here

He slowly got closer to the light, revealing himself,Bookmark here

"I'm not an important person, I'm just a keeper here."Bookmark here

I said, "So you're the dangerous person they're talking about."Bookmark here

"For me, danger tests power. It shows how strong a person is. Now tell me, are you strong enough?"Bookmark here

"I don't know, It's time to learn that."Bookmark here
