Chapter 45:

The War

Wolf Bloodline

Thousands of people began to attack at the same time. And this war would determine the fate of the first Kingdom. So we fought as hard as we could. I was trying to get as many men as I could. But the task assigned to me and my friends was not to take down ordinary soldiers. We had to take down the Elite Soldiers.Bookmark here

When I was fighting, I was looking for them. A little ahead, Hiroshi-san was fighting, I yelled at him,Bookmark here

"Hiroshi-san, Can you see the Elite Soldiers?"Bookmark here

"I'm a little busy right now Kid, give me some time."Bookmark here

At that time, in the middle of the war, something unexpected happened on the enemy side. Huge catapults appeared behind the enemy army. It left our whole army in disarray. The catapults were quite solid and large.Bookmark here

One of the soldiers of the enemy army shouted,Bookmark here

"Ready! Launch!"Bookmark here

They were throwing huge burning rocks at us. Everyone started running away from incoming rocks. But they were falling too fast. Some couldn't get away.Bookmark here

At that time I took two soldiers on my back and saved them from the incoming rocks at the last moment. As the catapults finished firing, I left the soldiers on my back in a safe place and returned to help the others.Bookmark here

Hiroshi activated his traps by shooting at them. He managed to trap a few dozen men. But the traps soon ran out, and several were destroyed by the creatures. After his traps running out, the soldiers, camouflaged in the Forest, began to attack.Bookmark here

They managed to defeat many creatures and many soldiers, until the catapults aimed at them.Bookmark here

This time, the catapults aimed at the soldiers who were hiding in the near forest and fired without caring about their own soldiers.Bookmark here

Our ambushed soldiers and our traps were all gone. We had nothing left to turn the war to our advantage, and even the elite soldiers hadn't attacked yet.Bookmark here

The army of the First Epic, and itself, was really that strong.Bookmark here

I thought about what we could do, what I could do.Bookmark here

Just then I decided to do something. I ran to the catapults, and I was thinking about smashing them.Bookmark here

I was taking down the soldiers in front of me and continued to run.Bookmark here

When I got to the catapults, I jumped as high as I could. Just as I was about to hit one of the catapults, A hawk appeared in the air.Bookmark here

It grabbed me by the arms with his claws and carried me away from the catapults. When we got away from the catapults, it started to rise, it started to lift me up quite high, apparently with the intention of killing me.Bookmark here

I turned around and kicked it in the stomach. Then it dropped me midair. I landed somewhere in a robust way.Bookmark here

And I also became the target of creatures and soldiers right when I landed. Looked like nothing was going to be easy.Bookmark here

I grabbed one of the soldiers and threw him at the creature. And then I kicked them both and knocked them down. Then I punched the other creature in the stomach and knocked him to the ground. And the soldiers behind him remained under the monster.Bookmark here

After defeating a few creatures and soldiers, a Panther appeared a little in front of me. It was running towards me very quickly. It just approached me in a second and jumped at me. It was going to bite my head off, but then I put my arm in front of me and made the Panther bit my arm. He bit my arm very strongly and wouldn't let go.Bookmark here

I was waving my arm around and hitting him from the ground to the ground. I was trying to get him to let go of my arm. But he was pretty strong and he was resisting. I grabbed his head with my other arm and managed to open his mouth and took my other arm out of the Panther's mouth.Bookmark here

Then I kicked the Panther in the head and threw him back a lot. I got back a little bit to check my arm. It wasn't hurt much and I could have kept fighting.Bookmark here

Then I noticed that Hiroshi, Babu, and Lezlie were approaching me. They were fighting and coming to help me at the same time.Bookmark here

Babu said,Bookmark here

"How's your arm, Ryuu-Kun?"Bookmark here

"I'm fine, I'm only slightly injured."Bookmark here

Babu took the bandage out of his bag, and he started wrapping it in my arm,Bookmark here

"This will keep the wound on your arm closed. Try not to do too much damage to your arm."Bookmark here

"Thank You! Babu."Bookmark here

Lezlie looked at us,Bookmark here

"They are quite outnumbered than us, and the catapults seem to restrict our escapes. We've lost too many lives. What are we supposed to do, Ryuu-san?"Bookmark here

"Of course we will continue to fight. In a place like this, we're not going to squeeze our tails and run away!"Bookmark here

Babu said, "Ryuu-Kun is right, but Ryuu-Kun, we need another plan. You know that too."Bookmark here

"Don't worry, I have a plan in mind for him."Bookmark here

I stood up slowly, holding the wound on my arm. "Can you handle the catapults?"Bookmark here

Babu said, "We can do that, but it's going to be really hard for us to get to the other side."Bookmark here

Hiroshi looked at the catapults and said,Bookmark here

"Don't be ridiculous! Kid, the plan you're thinking about doesn't make any sense. Even if they get there, the first and second elite soldiers won't let them attack the catapults. And besides, the creatures there will eat you without mercy."Bookmark here

"Creatures of the first elite soldier... Did you see the second elite soldier?"Bookmark here

Hiroshi pointed with his finger,Bookmark here

"Over there, the second elite soldier is behind the fourth catapult, and the first is just to his left."Bookmark here

"Hiroshi-san, Lezlie-Chan, Babu-san, We will all go to the catapults together. And when we get to the catapults, Hiroshi-san and I will take care of the Elite Soldiers. Lezlie-Chan and Babu-San, at that time, you will take down the catapults."Bookmark here

Hiroshi sighed and said, "No matter what I say, we'll follow this plan, right?"Bookmark here

Without turning around, I said, "There's nothing we can do, Hiroshi-san. It's the only chance we have."Bookmark here

"So what do we do if that "First Epic" notices us?"Bookmark here

"I don't think he can do anything right now. The King and the leader are fighting him pretty hard."Bookmark here

Hiroshi looked at me and smiled, "Kid, a ton of crazy things go through your mind, but even if you are like this, you still succeed."Bookmark here

He approached me and stood on my right side. He lighted his cigar and said,Bookmark here

"We're counting on you, Kid."Bookmark here

When we were about to leave, he said,Bookmark here

"Can you take down the first one?"Bookmark here

I smiled and said, "Come on Hiroshi-san, you know I can do this!"Bookmark here

"Well, then I'll take the second one."Bookmark here

"Should we go?"Bookmark here

"They don't look like they can wait too."Bookmark here
