As I described my relationship with Edward, of course, I left our real identity out. There was a jolt of numbing cold in my back. I did not cry in pain, but Edward darted to my side, pulling me under a tree. As he turned his eyes searching for the culprit, a cloaked man barely visible in the light since he was hiding in the shadows, jumped forward followed by other clocked men. They had daggers, and one of them had a wand.
The one with the one was pointing his hand towards me and holding the wand with the other. I understood immediately who they were, assassins. They came out when we sent our three companions. Even Alisha was not with us since she stayed behind studying the werewolf silver pack condition members.
Xavier unsheathed his sword and charged towards the cloaked man with a wand. The first thing you had to do in a battle was to eliminate the healers, supporters and offensive magicians. As I slumped back against the ground, pushing Edward forward, t
I was thinking for a while now. Wouldn't it be fine if we left something for ourselves for the future? Something to prove that one day we walked by here and contributed to a great cause. If we were to fix everything, the results would be attributed to our respective roles, not our true selves. This idea kept ringing in my head for a while now. I could not accept that our success would be given to someone else.I mean, since the future we know of is a fine one. We live in a society where we do not know even about these dark times. That means we will succeed; it is just that we have to make our decisions according to our judgements following the great cause. It means that Grande was only following history since if she did not send us, the future we know of would not exist.My head started to hurt. It isn't obvious. How did she know we were in this time? Does it mean we are already sharing the same body, and I am the one dominating it? It is really confusing.
"Good morning, Guardian deity Grazar; I hope that I did not disturb you," I looked around me and caught a glimpse of Edward and Davina sleeping, "I did not want to create a disturbance. However, I need your assistance.""You are a Grande, yet you need help from a guardian like me. I do not find anything to help you with."I looked at my bare hands then clenched them. There was something that had to be done. I stared at him with confidence. It was better to keep this a secret from the others. "I do not want to fake anything. I am not Adelia. I do not know what I need to do to fix all this mess, even if it was not my fault or hers to begin with. What I intend to do will be good for us as well as for you.""You got my interest. What can I do to help a worrisome soul like you? I already knew who you were. Words travel with the wind, and my friend told me about it. In fact, the future Adelia must have connected the two eras. That is why you ended up here.""Sh
We travelled as soon as we finished Bonine's ideas. She got depressed when her castle was not complete. However, great concepts must take time to flourish. There were approximately twenty members in Xavier's pack without counting children since they stayed back in the mountain. We were going for a war. Therefore, taking weak people with us is considered a hindrance.Westineof is a little far from here. We had to walk a great distance before arriving at a weird village. It was crowded with pacifist people, and a peaceful atmosphere crowned the air wherever you went on that land. The first option we had is to relax in a hot spring that was available in the village. It was surprising that it still existed and was not infected by the disease's virus. It was a blessing for us since we did not relax for a long time. Bonine rejoiced with the idea and disappeared immediately, searching for the items that we will use.Our whole gang threw himself into the spring, splashin
After a good bath, I met Bonine sitting on a bench right outside in the street torturing the bird."I was wondering for a while but, aren't you an odd fellow? You have the intelligence of a regular person. Who is that master of yours?""He is the mighty Diego. How about you become my master's bride instead of staying with that good for nothing? My master is a good man. He will give you the life you dream of. I feel like you desire a normal rich life where you have everything you want, with many servants and girls... I mean boys, handsome ones..." I flinched. I wonder what she will answer?She grimaced. "You deserve another beating. Do you know who he is? The one you are badmouthing.""Whatever he is, my master is better. It is not like he is a king.""He is a king."The bird screamed and flew away. "Excuse me. I do not want my feathers taken away. I guess there is no future for you and my mater. Goodbye! I hope you will have all the ha
"I was wondering for a while, young man. Why can't I read your thoughts?"It was a question that made me panic. I did not want to say who I was exactly, and at the same time, I admired the man in front of me. He was sitting elegantly, showing signs of wisdom and a lifelong experience. I never imagined that I would be meeting the ancestor that everyone admired."He is your great-grandson or great-great-grandson, I do not know exactly," Bonine held my hand and smiled at me. Thinking it was fine to tell him."That is surprising," Zadimus laughed, and his laugh was contagious. I laughed at my turn. I did not expect him to believe us. I truly wanted the wisdom of such a great man, "from the way the young man looks at me, I guess I must be someone you really look up to. You see, young man. I am no great man. I wander these lands keeping the door in the dungeon under us in control. I do not know exactly how to seal it. How is it, the life in the future?"
"We also have a legend about your deeds... more like it was about the portal. No one knew it existed beside a few nobles and the Rayginaz family," I explained."This is strange! I do not dare show off. The portal indeed exists, and I am keeping it at bay. However, it was a matter that I had to do in exchange for debt. We do not dare to blend with people, and also, we do not dare to take a human bride. It is already odd for me that you exist. From your words, that means I took a human as a friend and another human as a bride. It will shorten our lives if we do so.""In every generation of the Carmander royal family, there was a human bride. As to strengthen the bond between humans and vampires.""Then that means you are dhampirs. Vampires have a long lifespan, we like living in isolation, and we cannot stand humans. I am already doing my best to coexist with them.""As I thought. I found it already strange that the royals do not live as normal vampires," s
"Now, I want you to get out of here, and I hope I would never see your faces again," Barbara pointed at the back door and urged us to go. I stopped right in front of the door after Edward left, waiting for me outside."Is it really alright to go like that? I can help. I know I can do it.""You were the only one who was called traveller, you know. You may not know who you are, neither I do. However, you must be someone who had already seen enough and chose to experience the same thing all over again. Please stay out of it. This is our battle. Zadimus must have already knocked your friend. Take him and go. We will take care of these things. Since you exist, our battle will be successful."She pushed me outside and closed the door behind us. I did not know what to do. Suddenly, an idea came to my mind. We can help them kill the demons that will emerge from the portal using Xavier and his pack. I looked at Edward briefly and ran to the hot spring. I was confident I
