Inescapable Consequence Series
I woke up around 08:30 in the morning. It was a sunny day. However, it was kind of humid and thick air, which made it difficult to breathe.
While I was stretching my legs, I saw Number Four was sleeping in King Kuma’s arms. However, Number Three was not around the campfire.
Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep…
That alert sounds were coming from King Kuma. So, I went over and took a closer of it. Meanwhile, Number Four had wake up and looked at me.
“Good morning, Aoi.”
“Oh, good morning. Number Four.”
“Oh, it is King Kuma’s alarm clock.”
Number Four was reading my mind again.
“Oh, I see. By the way, I haven’t see Number Three around here. Do you know where he goes?”
Number Four stood up and then had a look.
“Probably, he went over there.”
“Yes, he is having a dump behind those bushes. As you know, he got too much poop in his tiny body. Hehe…”
Abruptly, Number Three’s voice was coming out from those bushes.
“Number Four, I heard that… Just a minute, I almost finished.”
A moment later, Number Three came out from those bushes.
“Good morning, Aoi.”
“Good morning, Number Three.”
Number Four starred at Number Three and said.
“Did you wash your hands?”
“Could you please be more reasonable? Like I could find a hand sink in here…”
“Ugh… You are gross… Did you use your hands to… Ugh… Gross!”
“No! You think too much… Here are my hands… Go… Smell them…”
“Away from me… Argh!”
Number Three started chasing after Number Four in return.
While I was looking at them chasing each other. Then, I unexpectedly realized there were five bear cubs, which were also running towards them. Number Three stopped the playing instantly, while Number Four was talking to those bear cubs.
Later on, Number Four looked at me and said.
“My five Koguma had reported that Crazy Seventy-Eight and its army will be here shorty. You shall leave at once.”
“Aoi, yes. Bring my five Koguma with you. They will protect you from dangers.”
Number Three nodded in agreement.
“We are running out of time. Aoi, please go now.”
“What about you two?”
“Number Three and I will stay and fight.”
“Aoi, find its entrance for us.”
“But I don’t know where is it.”
Suddenly, Number Three was holding my right hand and said.
“Aoi, believe in yourself. You can sense its presence.”
Number Three looked at me for a while and then he kissed on my right hand.
“Lady Aoi… Remember, you are always one of us.”
Then Number Three left the camp site. He was going ahead of Number Four into the battlefield.
I spaced out for a little bit. Then, I turned to Number Four.
“Huh? Number Four, what did he say?”
Number Four answered with a smile.
“Aoi, Number Three had told you the truth. You are a hybrid ET too. Hehe…”
“Your daddy is one of my brothers. That means you are my niece. Hehe…”
“Of course. But I have to go now. Number Three isn’t that reliable. He always needs my help. Hehe…”
“Will we meet again?”
Number Four opened her arms and gave me a hug.
“My lovely niece, don’t worry… Very soon, we will meet again.”
