Chapter 69:

The Skirt Of The Mountain

Wolf Bloodline

After a day's journey, we managed to reach the skirt of the mountain. When we got there, Mila looked at the mountain and said,Bookmark here

"Here we are the "Rowdown" mountain."Bookmark here

Lezlie tried to look over the mountain and said,Bookmark here

"The mountain looks quite high. It's not even visible because of the clouds."Bookmark here

"Yes, it is, this mountain is bigger than the mountains in other kingdoms, even the largest mountain among the kingdoms."Bookmark here

Babu smiled and said,Bookmark here

"Imagine founding the other person we were looking for here, wouldn't it be nice, Ryuu-Kun?"Bookmark here

"I don't think we're that lucky, but let's look at the map anyway."Bookmark here

I opened the map and checked it just in case Babu said it, and I came across a problem I hadn't encountered before on the map, it was a pretty strange problem, Hiroshi saw that I was looking at the map in a strange way and said,Bookmark here

"Hey, Kid! You look like you are frozen, is something wrong?"Bookmark here

"Very strange. It says the other person is in this kingdom, but the person's location is unclear."Bookmark here

Lezlie looked at the map and said,Bookmark here

"But Ryuu-San, It's impossible. No matter what condition the map is under or who it is, it must directly inform the location."Bookmark here

Mila turned to us and said,Bookmark here

"Maybe it's a person-related problem. After all, we don't know what powers do they have."Bookmark here

Babu scratched his head and said,Bookmark here

"Mila-san may be right, perhaps the person is using a spell that does not show itself and protects him from getting caught to maps like these."Bookmark here

Lezlie said,Bookmark here

"Again, I regret to say this, however, that no spell can disrupt the indicator status of this map."Bookmark here

I folded the map and put it back in my pocket,Bookmark here

"Anyway, let's not think about it right now, we have more important things to do."Bookmark here

"The Kid is right. Also have a problem. The road becomes steep after a short distance, so we can't go any further by horse-drawn carriage, we'll have to walk the rest of the way.Bookmark here

Babu looked at the top of the mountain and then swallowed and said,Bookmark here

"As a panda, I will definitely die of breathlessness at the top of the mountain. I'm sure of it."Bookmark here

After the conversation, we took a few pieces of food from the supply box in the carriage and two long ropes tied to the hooks. After we got what we needed, Hiroshi released the horses in the carriage and we started walking towards the mountain. Since the skirt of the mountain was not too steep, we could walk. But after an hour of progress, the mountain was too steep to walk. In addition, Hiroshi and I decided to take out the long ropes and throw the ropes on the slope that we saw on the mountain, but the shot was not going to be easy, since part of the slope was above the clouds. Hiroshi looked at me and said,Bookmark here

"It can be difficult for us to swing such a rope in this wind."Bookmark here

"So what's on your mind, Hiroshi-San?"Bookmark here

"If Babu and I support you, you can climb to a certain height so that you can comfortably secure the ropes to the top."Bookmark here

"All right then, let's go for it."Bookmark here

I took the ropes in my hands and waited for Hiroshi and Babu to join hands. When they joined their arms, they looked at me and gave me a ready sign with their heads. I quickly ran towards them on the mark and jumped on their arms.Bookmark here

Hiroshi and Babu raised their arms in the air and supported me with all their strength to jump. But I didn't get as high as I wanted. At the time I was going to fall, Lezlie backed me up with a bit of a push spell. And Mila supported me with the power of water. As I started to rise again, I turned around myself and threw the hook ropes to the top of the mountain, and fell down again, but I managed to get the hooks fixed on the slope above the mountain. I stopped my fall using the ropes and safely went back down.Bookmark here

Hiroshi was pulling the ropes towards himself, trying to understand that the ropes were safe and sound. He then stopped pulling the rope and said,Bookmark here

"The ropes will carry us up, but if we leave regularly. Panda and Kid, you'll use a rope. And you two, you'll use the same rope as me. So we can get to the top without any problems."Bookmark here

Lezlie looked at the top of the mountain and said,Bookmark here

"But Hiroshi-san, the end of the rope is quite high, and we are also climbing the rope with three people at the same time. And if our hand slides or we get tired, it will be a big problem for us."Bookmark here

"Don't worry, I'll be under you, I won't let that happen."Bookmark here

Mila turned to Lezlie, patted her back, and said,Bookmark here

"Don't worry! Don't worry! After all, I'll be behind you too. And we have no choice but to climb the mountain, do we?"Bookmark here

When they started climbing, Babu looked at me and said,Bookmark here

"Oh! I think we need to start climbing too, Ryuu-Kun. After you, please."Bookmark here

"Thank you, you're really generous."Bookmark here

He smiled and said, "After all, I'm a panda."Bookmark here

After our conversation, we started climbing. By the middle of our climb, an incredible wind and rain began. The rain and wind were pretty strong, it was like we were officially pulling down. Babu shouted towards me,Bookmark here

"How much longer we have to go?!"Bookmark here

"There's more!"Bookmark here

Mila looked up and said,Bookmark here

"The rain is getting stronger, we need to speed up!Bookmark here

When I looked back at Lezlie, I could see her hand shaking from the cold. I shouted towards her,Bookmark here

"Lezlie-San, Are you Okay!? Can you hold on!?Bookmark here

"Yes! Don't worry about me please!"Bookmark here

At that moment, I heard a noise over the mountain. It sounded like a powerful creature. I lifted my head up and said,Bookmark here

"There's a noise coming from above! I think something's coming!"Bookmark here

Mila looked at me and said,Bookmark here

"That's impossible! Unless......"Bookmark here

Just after Mila said that a gigantic bird opened its claws and began to approach us.Bookmark here
