Chapter 71:

Stranded On The Mountain

Wolf Bloodline

When they entered the mountain they approached us. Hiroshi stretched out his hand said,Bookmark here

"Are you alright Kid?"Bookmark here

"Yeah, I'm fine. But it was a hard land, I must admit."Bookmark here

I turned to Mila and said,Bookmark here

"Mila-San, why didn't you informed us about the monster, before we started climbing here?"Bookmark here

"I didn't know the creature was real. I thought it was a false myth, usually used to keep people out of the water."Bookmark here

Lezlie looked around and said,Bookmark here

"I thought my eyes had misled me, but this doesn't really look like the inside of a normal mountain."Bookmark here

Mila turned to Lezlie and said,Bookmark here

"A long time ago, a few of my people were assigned to protect this place. They built a cellar here to protect this place. It's a strong bunker, but this protection mission didn't last long. It is said that one of them mixed the water with something other than tears and drank the water. Because of this, he lost his mind and attacked his other friends. The reason we don't want to use the water is that it's very dangerous."Bookmark here

Hiroshi lit his cigar, looked at the monster, and said,Bookmark here

"And what is this giant bird doing here?"Bookmark here

"No one knows, one day it suddenly appeared and began to live on the top of the mountain and started to protect the mountain. That's all I know. But according to some, the bird is a creature that the people who died here called, before they died."Bookmark here

Babu said,Bookmark here

"If there's a cellar here, why did we climb all the way? Didn't it have an entrance?"Bookmark here

"Yes, it has an entrance down there, but it's filled with poison gases for some uncertain reason. So we had to climb."Bookmark here

"Is the water there?"Bookmark here

"No, the water we're looking for is just below where we are, but the toxic gases remain even lower than the water. So that puts us in a safe situation."Bookmark here

After that, Mila took some unburned torch from the wall and approached Hiroshi, Bookmark here

"Hey cowboy, I need some light here."Bookmark here

Hiroshi looked at her, then pulled out his lighter and lighted the torch,Bookmark here

Mila smiled and said,Bookmark here

"Thank you!"Bookmark here

Babu said,Bookmark here

"It's pretty dusty around here, I think we're the first to come here. Oh! And that means we can block the water and get out of here without fighting! Right?"Bookmark here

"Yeah, sure, but we also have to figure out how to block the water."Bookmark here

"If we can find the end of the current, I can stop the flow of water by my own power."Bookmark here

Hiroshi said,Bookmark here

"That will work. Come on let's go."Bookmark here

We began to walk into the mountain,Bookmark here

We kept walking slowly, the road was quite dark and dusty. After half an hour of progress, we saw a glowing entrance in front of us. It was glowing like we were going out again, but when we got in there, we couldn't believe our eyes. All around us was covered with ice that shone like rubies, and the layer below us was completely frozen.Bookmark here

The place we were in was a much colder place than any other place. Because of the ice, the area was quite transparent, and we could even see our own reflections on the ice. After a short look at where we were, Mila pointed and said,Bookmark here

"Here's it is, the "Kairi" water."Bookmark here

"All right, let's blo-"Bookmark here

Suddenly, from an unknown place, we began to hear strong applause. He was applauding and laughing. Then the mysterious person started talking and said,Bookmark here

"Bravo! Bravo! You've done an excellent job. I'm really impressed that you were able to beat that bird. Thanks to you, it was much easier for us to get here."Bookmark here

Hiroshi pulled out his gun, And I shouted,Bookmark here

"Who is talking! Show yourself!"Bookmark here

Two people appeared right in front of us. One had four arms and a fairly well-built body, and the other looked like a spark was coming out of his feet and looked quite young. Babu pointed with his hand,Bookmark here

"Hey, it's him! He was the elite soldier who was after us at the port!"Bookmark here

I said,Bookmark here

"Him?"Bookmark here

Mila said,Bookmark here

"Yeah, and he is pretty fast for a normal person, so be careful."Bookmark here

The muscular guy said turned to the fast guy and said,Bookmark here

"These pitiful human beings know you well, don't they?"Bookmark here

"What can I say? I am quite popular."Bookmark here

Then he said,Bookmark here

"Ah! That's true! They don't know you yet! All right, everybody, this big boy you see is "Hurk. He's the fourth elite soldier of the second Kingdom. Unlike his appearance, he is actually a good guy."Bookmark here

Hurk looked at him with anger,Bookmark here

He then said,Bookmark here

"I am kidding! I am kidding! Ok, back to the point. What I was saying? Oh yeah! We are grateful to you all, because of you we managed to get out of the other side of the mountain easily while you kept the bird busy. But unfortunately, we can't let you take the water here."Bookmark here

"Don't be stupid! We outnumber you. You guys are the ones who should retreat."Bookmark here

He then said,Bookmark here

"Do you want to count again?"Bookmark here

After his words, he whistled, and almost dozens of people appeared around him. Bookmark here

"It's a shame you didn't accept my offer. But everything has an end, doesn't it?"Bookmark here

He then looked at us and said,Bookmark here

"Attack."Bookmark here

I then shouted at my group and said,Bookmark here

"Form a circle!"Bookmark here

We formed a circle with our backs against each other. Thanks to the circle, we easily repelled all the normal soldiers who came at us. Lezlie and Mila managed to stop the arrows and the bullets coming towards us in the air with their magic and water powers. I and Babu took down the soldiers who were coming to the close attack, while Hiroshi took care of the enemies in the Far Range. Bookmark here

While we were fighting, the four-armed guy jumped and started to fall towards us,Bookmark here

Hiroshi then shouted,Bookmark here

"Move to different places!"Bookmark here

We managed to escape the attack, but because we left, we were in a more difficult situation.Bookmark here
