Chapter 43:

Ready For War

Wolf Bloodline


After the King had finished his speech, we scattered in our rooms to rest. But as I was about to leave the room, King Aoin looked at me and said,

"Ryuu-Kun, I want to talk to you about one or two things."

I nodded,

"Let's go to my room first, they can't bother us there."

We went there and started talking,

"I called you here because there's something I want to know."

"The wound you've received recently was too much for a person to handle, we both know that. To meet such a power, you only have to come from a powerful lineage and harbor a huge power."

"It's not right to just say things like that to everyone, but the reason I was able to handle the explosion there was because I'm a Wolf Descendant."

"Don't worry, your secret is safe with me, but do your friends know?"

"They know. It would never be right to keep secrets from people who would fight with me."

"I understand, you trust each other, which is good, but you have to be careful. Because it would be very dangerous for you to say that you are of this bloodline, out there or anywhere."

"If you mean for Miron....."

"No, it's not for him, it's dangerous in Miron, but it's not the only reason. A long time ago, before Alpha Prime, The Wolf lineage was a very dangerous lineage. And that's because of the man at the head of The Wolf line. The man who created the Wolf Bloodline. He was ruthless, even my eldest brother Yores couldn't fight him."

"So what happened?"

"The leader of the Wolf line wanted to create a world where there was no weak, only the strong. Because of this, other people and lineages began to fear him and all other people of the Wolf line. There was nothing to do, that man couldn't be stopped by anyone. Until my father, the first king, and Alpha prime stopped him. It is said that they started to call Alpha Prime, "Alpha Prime" after this battle. Alpha prime has taken over the lineage and brought peace by making a deal with the King."

"Is that why the Wolf breed is despised?"

"According to some, yes, but according to some, no, after the epics came, your bloodline was completely excluded, now your bloodline seems to be just a dream. This lineage is the wildest and strongest of all lineages, and if you can't control it, you'll kill everyone who gets in front of you, even your friends, without thinking. So try to stay as calm as possible and don't hold a grudge."

"I'll do my best. I will prove that my bloodline is innocent again, and no matter how long it takes, my bloodline will live in peace again."

"If you do what people want, if you become someone like Alpha Prime, I assure you, your bloodline will find peace again."

"Anyway, rest before it's too late, we will leave in two days."

After our conversation, I went to my room and rested for a while.

At The Time, In The Castle Of The First Epic,

The second elite soldier quickly approached the First Epic,

"Sir, as you requested, we have gathered our men everywhere, and we are ready to go to war."

"Great, victory will soon be ours."

"Sir, forgive me, but is it possible that we can take this war while the King has sided with them?"

"I understand your concern, but I assure you, this war will be on our side. All I ask is that you kill that boy and his friends."

"What about the King and the Leader, Sir?"

"Leave them to me, and I will take care of them myself."

"As you wish, Sir."

"By the way, one last thing, don't let me down, Understand?"

Two Days Later, The First Kingdom

Finally, after two days, I was awake again and ready for battle. Thanks to the doctors and the endurance that the Wolf power in me gave me, I recovered quite quickly. All the preparations were complete. Hundreds of soldiers stood on horses waiting for news of the King's move.

We rode our horses to the front line of the soldiers. The King walked in front of us on a white horse,

"My brothers and friends, this is the day. Today is the day when we end the war and reclaim our freedom. I can't make amends for the mistakes I've made in the past, but let me be your king once again today and guide you. Let's come back here again with the victory in our hands!"

After the King gave his speech, he began to ride his horse. Then all the soldiers shouted,

"Long live our king, Aoin!"

They said, and they began to ride their horses, following the King. There was a strong crowd of voices around. I almost rode among the King's hundreds of soldiers. Everyone was moving forward enthusiastic and ready for battle. Just as the people of Cronus trusted their Leader, the more the soldiers here trusted their King.

At this rate, we'd be there in the morning sun tomorrow. I was sure of that. Babu approached me with his horse,

"Hey, Ryuu-Kun, how are you?"

"I'm good how are you?"

"I'm fine. I was just thinking if the Cronus lineage got there before us."

"Most likely, they have arrived. Why did you ask?"

"Any unexpected attack can start a war, so I'm afraid about that."

"Don't worry, I'm sure we'll make it in time."

"I don't like to rush work, but this is different from the others. Let's do our best, Ryuu-Kun."

"You bet."

Babu said that because of my injuries, but I was better than before, and I didn't want anyone to waste time on me right now.

When I looked at the king, he was moving confidently, and now he wanted to end this war, and he wanted to ensure peace. I should have put an end to this war no matter what. Because a lot of our future depended on it.
