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,

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

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

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

"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."

"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."

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

"Wait, Are you Alpha Prime?"

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

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

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

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

"And where were you?"

"Uhmmm! I!" he said very anxiously.

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

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

"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."

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,

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

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

I turned my head to my Father,

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

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

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

"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."

Kaika "Quite a gentleman, huh?"

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

Then he turned to my Father and said,

"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."

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

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

"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."

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

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

Jiro said, "Actually,-"

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

"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."

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

He then turned to Chief and said,

"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."

Kyoshiro then moved into the middle of them and said,

"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."

The Chief gave a look at them and said,

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

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

Kyoshiro looked at Alpha Prime and said,

"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."

"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."

He stood up and said,

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

"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."

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

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

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

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

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

Jiro said, "Huh?"

"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."

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

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

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

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

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

"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."

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,

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

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

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

"I love you."

"I love you too."

Hiroshi-San looked at me and said,

"And what happened after that?"

"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.

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