Chapter 52:

Lezlie's Past

Wolf Bloodline

Hiroshi-San turned to me as he looked at the stars and said,Bookmark here

"I heard once that Alpha Prime saved you. Are the rumors true?"Bookmark here

"Actually, I wasn't in the world at the time of the incident, I wasn't born yet, my mother told me about the events."Bookmark here

"It all happened eighteen years ago."Bookmark here

18 years ago, before the continents separated, PelenaBookmark here

A month before I gave birth, the enemy lineages had gradually increased their attacks.Bookmark here

My father, one of the three chefs, came to see me at that time.Bookmark here

He came to my house. When my father entered the house, he approached me with a happy expression,Bookmark here

"Pelena, how are you, are you and the little one okay?"Bookmark here

"Dad, we're fine, it's just a little hard to walk, but we're still fine. What about the kingdom, will they send help?"Bookmark here

"Unfortunately, the King cannot help us because of the distress he has experienced with the bloodline of destruction."Bookmark here

"But he said he would help every bloodline!"Bookmark here

"Girl, we all know the King promised, but the problems he deals with is enough for him, he's dealing with all three lineages. We need to give him a break."Bookmark here

"Then I need to talk to him."Bookmark here

"No, you're not going anywhere with this situation. There's enough trouble out there."Bookmark here

"But our people need help!"Bookmark here

"I understand how they feel, but we've come up with a plan for it."Bookmark here

"Huh?"Bookmark here

"We're thinking of moving some of the group to East. In this way, most people can be more comfortable and safe."Bookmark here

"Dad, don't be ridiculous, separating our people only makes us weak. And for generations, we haven't left our land. It would be a great shame for our land, to our ancestors!"Bookmark here

"Pelena, we're not leaving our land, we just need to send some of us to safety until help comes. We have to do this to keep our bloodline alive. Just like our ancestors wanted us to."Bookmark here

"But, Dad, this is really ridiculous. We shouldn't send anyone... Wait a minute, you never talked to me about our village issues after I got pregnant, and now all of a sudden you're talking to me about village issues."Bookmark here

"Uhhh, I, uhhhh..."Bookmark here

"Don't tell me you want me to go with them."Bookmark here

"Pelena, please I am asking you not as a chef, but as a father....."Bookmark here

"I don't want to leave our home!"Bookmark here

As my father was about to say something to me, suddenly one of the villagers entered through the door,Bookmark here

"Chief, our village is under attack!"Bookmark here

"What, the Caparros bloodline again?"Bookmark here

"Yes, but there are more of them this time."Bookmark here

My father quickly made his way to the door,Bookmark here

"Call the other two chiefs. Get the children and women to safety."Bookmark here

"Dad, let me come too."Bookmark here

"No, you're not coming, you'll stay here, you are still pregnant, out there is too dangerous for you."Bookmark here

"But I have to help, I want to help."Bookmark here

"Pelena, No means No."Bookmark here

My father used his magic to carry me into the room and locked my door,Bookmark here

"You'll stay here until we get this under control."Bookmark here

Even though I knocked on the door many times, my father ignored me and left the house. Because my father's powers were so strong, it was impossible for me to open the door. I looked around for another way out, but there was no way out. I was so mad at my dad, so I started punching around.Bookmark here

"Aaaaah! Dammit!"Bookmark here

After a short time, I fell asleep.Bookmark here

When I opened my eyes, the door was open. I didn't know how many hours I slept, all I knew was that I wanted to go out and help people.Bookmark here

It was night when I went out. It was pretty dark. There was no one around, which was pretty weird. Even in places that were normally full of sounds, there was no sound. When I turned to my left, I saw a little girl lying on the floor.Bookmark here

I ran right up to her. I took her in my arms and turned her face towards me to understand her condition. I stopped in shock. Her face looked just like me, but different. As I tried to figure out what had happened, a burning horse-drawn carriage was coming at me without a horse. Somehow I couldn't move. When the car approached, I covered and tried to protect her.Bookmark here

As the carriage approached, I closed my eyes and waited for it to hit. At that moment, someone jumped in front of me and used his arrow to shoot at the wheel of the carriage. After the wheel broke, the carriage changed direction, and we survived. In our village, there was only one person who used arrows, my husband. I said to him,Bookmark here

"Honey, this child is injured, I need your help."Bookmark here

"Seinch, Hey! Didn't you hear me?"Bookmark here

After I couldn't hear from my husband, I turned my head to him and saw that he was covered in blood. All of a sudden, he fell to the ground, right next to me. My hands and feet began to tremble with fear,Bookmark here

"Hey! Are you ok? Come on! Please talk with me!"Bookmark here

He looked at me and smiled,Bookmark here

"Pelana, Pelana."Bookmark here

And suddenly I opened my eyes, sweating so bad. My husband was in a corner of the bed, shaking me to wake up.Bookmark here

"Oh, thank God. It was just a dream."Bookmark here

"Hey, are you okay?"Bookmark here

"I had a terrible nightmare."Bookmark here

By handing me a glass full of water he said,Bookmark here

"Here, drink some water."Bookmark here

After I finished my water, I put the glass on the table and turned to him,Bookmark here

"They were attacking the village this morning, What happened?"Bookmark here

"We managed to repel the incoming enemies, but we have several wounded people. And we're sure they'll come back. But don't think about it for now, please."Bookmark here

"I'm fine, I'm just a little confused."Bookmark here

"Did your father told you about his opinion?"Bookmark here

"Yes, he did. But it seems ridiculous to me."Bookmark here

"I know how ridiculous it sounds. But in this case, there's nothing we can do. I understand that you want to stay here, but if we don't get people out of here who might get hurt, the situation will be difficult for both of us.Bookmark here

In addition, there will be soldiers to protect them alongside women and children. You don't have to worry, we just have to protect what is ours just for now."Bookmark here

"I really can't belie-"Bookmark here

"Are you okay?"Bookmark here

"I think it's coming."Bookmark here

"What's, what's coming?"Bookmark here

"What do you think it could be? The child!"Bookmark here
