I, Lezlie-Chan, and the crew managed to land at the end of the third day. As soon as our rafts touched the beach, we first looked for a place to eat. Because a lot of us were starving, and we hadn't had a bite in our mouth in days.Bookmark here

After walking a short distance, we came across a restaurant, and we immediately went in and ordered something to eat. Captain, Lezlie, and I were sitting at the same table. The captain was looking at the ground with a rather sad expression. I turned my head to the captain and said,Bookmark here

"Captain, are you okay?"Bookmark here

"Don't worry about me, I'm just a little distracted, that's all."Bookmark here

"Are you sure, that you are okay?"Bookmark here

"I lost my ship and two passengers, being a captain is a difficult job and I couldn't perform this task. So I regret that."Bookmark here

"Oh, Come on, Captain, you can trust them! Because they promised to come back, and they always keep their promises. And don't worry about the ship, you saved your crew, didn't you?"Bookmark here

"You're right, I'm sorry for bothering you two."Bookmark here

"It's all right, captain, Ryuu-Kun and Hiroshi-San will be here soon."Bookmark here

Lezlie turned her head to me and said,Bookmark here

"Do you think Ryuu-San and Hiroshi-San will find their way here, Babu-San? We don't know for sure how many ports this place has or what kind of shores it has."Bookmark here

Captain looked at us,Bookmark here

"Don't worry, young lady, I've heard a few things about the sea of the second Kingdom. For some reason, whatever the sea is, wherever it is, whether it is a ship or a boat, the sea always attracts the things it to ports, always. If your friends succeed, the port will attract them here."Bookmark here

I said, "So they're definitely coming to the port?"Bookmark here

He said, "Yes, but which port?"Bookmark here

"What do you mean?"Bookmark here

"The second Kingdom has two ports. This and the other port in the west of the kingdom."Bookmark here

Lezlie said, "How far are we from the second port, Captain?"Bookmark here

"It's not much, it's two days away."Bookmark here

As we spoke, the food came, and I couldn't help it because it smelled pretty good,Bookmark here

I turned to Captain, and said, "I'm sorry, but I think we'll have to leave the conversation later, captain."Bookmark here

I immediately started eating. After we were done eating we went out, we were tired so we started looking for a place to rest. The captain pointed with his hand,Bookmark here

"There was a hotel there, you can go there to relax."Bookmark here

Lezlie said, "What about you, Captain?"Bookmark here

"I and my crew, unfortunately, have to part ways with you here, we have fulfilled our duty, we have brought you to the second Kingdom."Bookmark here

I said, "I see, Will you return to the first Kingdom?"Bookmark here

"There's a ship Merchant in the eastern part. I'll go there and see if I can buy another ship, and we'll see how it goes."Bookmark here

I hugged the captain tight,Bookmark here

"Captain! Take good care of yourself! I hope you and your crew can make it back!"Bookmark here

The captain smiled and said,Bookmark here

"Come on, it hurts."Bookmark here

I let him go. He sighed and said,Bookmark here

"It was a pleasure to meet you all."Bookmark here

Lezlie said, "It was a great honor for us to meet you too, Captain."Bookmark here

After separating our ways with the captain, Lezlie-Chan and I went to the hotel. I bought us a room for one night with the last gold left in my pocket. We went to our rooms.Bookmark here

I lay down on the bed and closed my eyes and went to sleep. In the morning, Lezlie-Chan was waiting for me at the entrance to the hotel. I went to her, and when she saw me, she shouted at me,Bookmark here

"It would be better for us to not waste any more time here, Babu-San! We need to get to the other port as soon as possible."Bookmark here

"Wait for a second, Lezlie-Chan! But what if they come here?"Bookmark here

"Maybe I can't observe events like Ryuu-San, but according to my observations over the last few days, we've been at sea for days and we've been here for almost a day, I'm sure Hiroshi-San and Ryuu-San should have caught up by now."Bookmark here

"You may be right, Lezlie-Chan. But I'm not sure about this."Bookmark here

I then thought about it. If they were coming right behind us, as we thought, it made more sense for them to get here later. But if something happened, as the captain said, they could have gotten here before us. I guess we had to try what Lezlie-Chan said. Because If we started searching for them it would be better for the four of us.Bookmark here

I sighed, "Okay, we will do that. but you know we need a car or a horse, so we can complete the road faster."Bookmark here

"I understand, but where will we find such a vehicle, Babu-San?"Bookmark here

"Last night I saw a poster in front of a place, a job poster, I couldn't read much, but it said something about transport work related to the second port."Bookmark here

"Then our only chance is to go there and look, Am I right?"Bookmark here

When we got to the front of the place, we saw the job poster for the second port, but the poster didn't say the exact address. We decided to go in and ask the bartender. When we asked the bartender, the bartender looked at us and said,Bookmark here

"Unfortunately, I don't know anything, posters can usually be incomplete or they can be there for a long time."Bookmark here

I said, "All right, we understand. Thank you anyway."Bookmark here

Just as we were leaving the place, we saw a table to our left. At the table, a woman in a black cape, her face was completely invisible, surrounded by three to four men. At first, we didn't mind, but then we noticed that the guys were talking to the lady in a harsh manner. One of the men yelled at her and said,Bookmark here

"I guess you didn't learn that your kind isn't welcomed here. You and your kind make me sick."Bookmark here

The woman continued to sit down without telling them anything. He got even angrier at her silence and said,Bookmark here

"Let's see if you still be so quiet when you get hurt."Bookmark here

That's when Lezlie shot the guy using her spell,Bookmark here

"Please leave that lady alone and leave here without making a scene."Bookmark here

When the other people looked at us I took the tray on the table and threw it at the other guy, and when the other guy was going to hit me, I held the tray in front of me, and I blocked his fist, and I banged the guy in the jaw with the tray. When Lezlie struck the man in front of him with her spell, it made the man get closer to me. So I hit him on the head with a tray and knocked him down.Bookmark here

We managed to knock them all down in no time. The lady quickly passed us and said in a quiet tone,Bookmark here

"Meet me in the alley in behind this shop."Bookmark here

She said that and went out. We went out doing what the lady said and met her in the alley, behind the shop. The lady looked around, saw that there was no one there, took her cape off her head, and said,Bookmark here

"Thank you, what you did mean a lot, but I didn't invite you here to thank you alone, I know it happened very quickly, but I need your help with one more thing."Bookmark here
