Chapter 54:

Lezlie's Past: Part 3

Wolf Bloodline

My father asked us to bring the strangers with us, so we took them and went to meet him, together. As soon as my father saw me, he ran and hugged me,Bookmark here

"Oh, dear girl, nothing happened to you, did it?"Bookmark here

"All right, calm down, I'm fine, the strangers saved me."Bookmark here

My father turned to them, and began to shake their hands,Bookmark here

"I'm really grateful to you. Please join today's celebration. Even if it's not much, I'd like to thank you. Oh, and I would like to know your names."Bookmark here

"My name is Kaika, and this is my brother Jiro Okami." He put his hand on his brother's shoulder and said, "They usually call him Alpha Prime."Bookmark here

"Do we have to do this everywhere we go?"Bookmark here

"Wait, Are you Alpha Prime?"Bookmark here

Kaika. I didn't know they would be brothers. And why my father got so surprised?Bookmark here

"Yes, I am, but why did you ask?"Bookmark here

"I will talk about this when we get to my room. And I'm Kyoshiro, I'm honored to meet you both."Bookmark here

Then he turned to Seinch with a very angry expression and said,Bookmark here

"And where were you?"Bookmark here

"Uhmmm! I!" he said very anxiously.Bookmark here

"He was helping other people, too, Dad. There was nothing he could do."Bookmark here

"Yes sir, I was trying to save other people that were in need of help too. If I could I would have defended her."Bookmark here

"Anyway, we have guests today, and you're fine, so I'm not going to drag this out. For now, I'd like to welcome you to my room until the celebration begins."Bookmark here

My father was too sensitive about my pregnancy, so was Seinch. I knew they were afraid of something bad happening to me but I had things I had to do too. After getting to the room we started talking again,Bookmark here

"I didn't know you were here, rumors said you were in the castle."Bookmark here

"For some reason, I have to go east, so I left the kingdom with my brother."Bookmark here

I turned my head to my Father,Bookmark here

"Dad, you look like you are very much surprised to see him, do you know who he is?"Bookmark here

"This man is the most powerful man of his own bloodline and of all bloodlines, this man is Alpha Prime."Bookmark here

Kaika said, "Looks like your popularity is getting bigger."Bookmark here

"Thank you for your praise, but I'm not that strong or mighty as they say. This is just what they call me and what they see me."Bookmark here

Kaika "Quite a gentleman, huh?"Bookmark here

Jiro turned to Kaika and said, "Can you cut that out?"Bookmark here

Then he turned to my Father and said,Bookmark here

"Look, we don't want to cause any discomfort, and we're in a bit of a hurry. As a reward for your kindness, a piece or two of food will suffice for the road."Bookmark here

Right at that time, two other chefs entered the room,Bookmark here

"What's going on here, Kyoshiro, who are these strangers?"Bookmark here

"Alpha prime and his brother Kaika, they saved my daughter and our people in our village. So I invited them to the celebration, to show my gratitude."Bookmark here

Then the eldest of the Chiefs turned to Alpha Prime and said,Bookmark here

"I'm really surprised you're here. Your reputation is spreading everywhere, and they say you do good things."Bookmark here

Jiro said, "Actually,-"Bookmark here

"But will it bring back what you and your family destroyed? It's your decision to live with such a dream, of course."Bookmark here

"As long as you don't have any information about the Wolf Bloodline, it's not logical to say that, Chief. The absurd information that you get from where you sit, the information that is only in your head, the actual events, of course, are more painful. The real reason Jiro killed our father was that he had to. You must know how dangerous that man is."Bookmark here

Jiro said, "Brother! That's enough!"Bookmark here

He then turned to Chief and said,Bookmark here

"You're right, there were past events that damaged so our past that we can not erase, maybe we can't erase that from people's minds and that may have caused chaos, but we can change our future. I know I can do that and I know I can show everyone that the Wolf bloodline is not as bad as how it seems from the outside."Bookmark here

Kyoshiro then moved into the middle of them and said,Bookmark here

"That's enough. Even if we are the chief of this village, we have no right to do so to the people who do us good. So I'm asking you to stop."Bookmark here

The Chief gave a look at them and said,Bookmark here

"They can stay until the celebration, but I don't want them here in the war."Bookmark here

After the chief said these words, he left the room with the other chief next to him.Bookmark here

Kyoshiro looked at Alpha Prime and said,Bookmark here

"I'm sorry for what happened, he lost his family a long time ago. And the person who killed his family, was your father. he has held a grudge against you for years. Because of this, he never liked The Wolf bloodline, he didn't do anything to you because you saved people today, but in a normal situation, he wouldn't have mercy on anyone in the Wolf bloodline. Regardless of who they are."Bookmark here

"I understand that. A lot of people's lives have been ruined because of my father, and it's irreversible. That's why we're trying to help people and make sure these things don't happen again."Bookmark here

He stood up and said,Bookmark here

"Thank you for your help, but we have to get going."Bookmark here

"Our bloodline has a tradition here. A good deed is met only with a good deed. So it would be better if you two stayed a little more."Bookmark here

Kaika said "Aww, come on, opportunities are coming right and left today. That is a sign Jiro!"Bookmark here

Jiro "Okay, okay, I am giving up. But we will leave as soon as this ends."Bookmark here

Then Kyoshiro said, "I'd like to ask one more question. You said You were planning on going somewhere. Where are you going?"Bookmark here

"We will go east. We have to meet our alliances and return to the kingdom."Bookmark here

"I know I'm asking a lot, but I need one last favor."Bookmark here

Jiro said, "Huh?"Bookmark here

"Our village is going through very difficult times, and we want to migrate a small part of our people to the east to expand our land, increase our food, and keep our people away from war. So I ask you to accompany my people and ensure their safety."Bookmark here

"We will gladly help your people. I'll escort them to the east."Bookmark here

"I don't know how to thank you two. Your help will be remembered."Bookmark here

Kaika said, "We'll be back on the road in two days. We have plenty of time until then."Bookmark here

"Then let's get out of here and celebrate until then."Bookmark here

"In times of attack, the celebration doesn't seem to make much sense. Aren't you putting people's lives in danger?"Bookmark here

"Even though I know it sounds ridiculous, there's nothing I can do. My people are very committed to their traditions and perform this festival no matter what. But don't worry, it's our job to ensure their safety."Bookmark here

Then we made our way to the village square. And we attended the celebration. Everyone was laughing, having fun, and eating. Shortly after the break, Seinch appeared in front of me again. He reached out his hand to me and said,Bookmark here

"May I have the pleasure of this dance. Miss Pelena"Bookmark here

"You don't have to do romantic moves like that, you know?"Bookmark here

"Even so, I can't be happy unless you're happy. So it's my job to make you happy."Bookmark here

"I love you."Bookmark here

"I love you too."Bookmark here

Hiroshi-San looked at me and said,Bookmark here

"And what happened after that?"Bookmark here

"Soon after, the Caparros attacked again with a crowded Army. My mother was giving birth to me when they attacked me. After the day she gave birth, a Caparros hiding approached my father from behind and killed my father in front of me and my mother, who was carrying me. Alpha prime and Kaika-San saved us again when mom and I were attacked.Bookmark here

After that, my mother got very upset, and she agreed to go east with Alpha Prime."Bookmark here
