Abe the Wizard - Chapter 27

Published at 8th of February 2020 11:28:03 AM

Chapter 27

30 minutes had passed… The two were well on their way now going back to the castle . During the journey, Abel and Master Bentham were exchanging knowledge in their forging experiences with one another . But for most parts, Master Bentham was mainly teaching and mentoring Abel . Although Abel was a quick learner and had already become a blacksmith master, he was nowhere near as experienced as Master Bentham .

While they were chatting away, Abel suddenly felt that the carriage had come to a stop . So, He then lifted the curtain of the horse carriage and asked the driver, “What’s wrong?”

The cart driver was in shocked as he spoke with a sense of astonishment, “Something seems odd with the village ahead . Maybe something had happened . ”

Abel then spoke directly to Master Bentham, “Master, you stay in the carriage while I go take a look at what’s going on . ”

Master Bentham laughed and said . “I’m a level five fighter myself . You don’t need to worry about me . ”

For someone who was only a level five fighter like Master Bentham, Abel was extremely skeptical about his capacity to fight . Even The Knight of Marshall himself had to keep training every single day to maintain his fighting ability . As for Master Bentham, Abel had never seen him practicing his fighting skills a single time, ever since the day they met .

But Abel did not insist on Master Bentham staying . As the two got out of the carriage, they immediately saw the distant village rising in clouds of black smoke .

“I’ll go ahead and take a look . ” As Abel pulled out the great ice magical sword that had been forged during the blacksmith union evaluation, from the trunk of the carriage . The sword was not yet decorated, so it looked ugly, but it certainly would not affect its defensive capabilities and functions .

“Be careful,” Master Bentham warned .

Abel waved his hand, signaling that he understood Bentham’s goodwill, and promptly walked towards the village .

The closer he got to the village, the more Abel sensed that something was wrong . It wasn’t just a small fire, it was the entire village and its’ houses being burnt down .

When Abel arrived at the village, he was in shock from what he had just witnessed . The ground of the village was littered with dead bodies of the innocent villagers . Not only that, but some of the dead bodies were mutilated . It seemed as though as they have been bitten by an animal of some sort .

The most disturbing thing to Abel was the sight of the multiple corpses of children . These bodies were scattered in almost all parts of the village . It was obvious that what happened here was an unjust slaughter . Only a group that had absolute power could have planned a massacre like this . In Abel’s knowledge of this world’s history, it would be extremely rare to see the slaughtering of innocent civilians even if it’s an invasion of another country .

As Abel walked around the village, there was not a single survivor . It seemed that the killers were highly trained and experienced . They might even possess special abilities . The places where the people hid had been completely abolished, and those who had hidden were killed without mercy .

Abel had never felt such so anxious, it was almost indescribable to him . Even though this area was not a part of his family’s territory . As a human being, he couldn’t help but felt a sense of sympathetic sadness and sorrowfulness for the victims of this massacre .

When Abel came to this world, he thought he saw a peaceful image . Even though he had been attacked by people before . he thought that no world could be perfect, there would always be criminals out there . However, what he had witnessed today was the first time something has shocked him to his soul . Maybe this world was not as peaceful as he had imagined . People were being slaughtered in their own home! What would’ve happened if that was his own family? What if it was the Bennett family?

As Abel didn’t return for a long period of time, Bentham was starting to get worried . he quickly hurried to the village, when he saw the scene of the massacre and the bodies, he was also in a great deal of shock . “God, what happened?”

Master Bentham quickly went over to the bodies of the victims and examined it carefully . “Orcs,” he said grimly, “It was the orcs . ”

Master Bentham then pointed towards the wounds of the corpses and said . “These were the bite marks of wolves . No wonder there were recent reports of Wolfriders being seen around here . ”

The Wolfriders were the dominant unit of the Orc empire’s military, which were mostly trained by the werewolves and worgens . The Wolfrider troops were extremely strong when it came to their speed, agility, flexibility and their stance of direction . All these characteristics made the Wolf cavalry one of the strongest armies here in Mainland . Not only were they strong, but they were also extremely adaptable to even the toughest environment . During long battles, they feed off from the slain enemies allowing them for maximum efficiencies in continuing their battles .

“We better go back immediately! The Knight of Marshall needs to know about this” Suddenly, something occurred to Master Bentham . He realized that there must be still some werewolves nearby, and with the speed of these werewolves . All the villages and castles nearby around here would be in great danger .

Abel and master Bentham quickly returned to their carriage and hurried back towards Harry’s Castle with the driver driving as fast as he can .

Simon was a Worgen . Or, rather, a wolf rider in the Wolf cavalry . His wife was a female wolf, named Black Wind

Simon’s home was in a barren plain that had experienced a great deal of poverty . His home had around two hundred acres of land and he had nine brothers and sisters . As Simon was the second child of the family, their two hundred acres of land not providing enough source of food for their entire family’s need . So, his parents decided to use up the majority of their resources on Simon, as he had the potential of becoming a member of the wolf riders . But by doing so, this meant that all his brothers and sisters would starve .

In order to gain more land for his family, Simon made up his mind . He would participate in the trial of death . In the past, every participant who could survive the trial of death would be rewarded with a piece of land . Besides that, most of them could often be brought back a large number of gold coins and gems, which were more than enough to buy a whole lot of land .

Simon tried his best not thinking about the consequences of the annual trial death . He tried not to remind himself of a large number of people who would not make it back alive . He only wished to be one of the survivors .

Simon felt that he was out of luck the other night when he was passing through the Budapest mountains . He allocated his wife, Black Wind, to rest a shed within the barracks . There were a lot of other male wolves in the shed . One of them had sexual interaction with his wife .

After riding the flying beast through the Budapest mountains, the small group of cavalry troops, which consisted of ten members set off and began their journey . Everything was going smoothly as they progressed forward . They avoided towns and only attacked small villages, although the rewards from raiding these small villages weren’t massive, these successive raids on the small villages allowed Simon to gain a significant amount of confidence throughout his journey .

But one day, Simon found out that his wife was pregnant . Wolves were extremely loyal creatures . Their loyalty to their master was unprecedented among all animals . When a baby wolf was born, the first creature it sees would ultimately become its master .

Normally, the pregnancy of a wolve was a very happy event and deserved to be celebrated . Whether if it was to give his brother the right to claim his title as the master, or to give up the privilege of being a master in exchange for a large number of resources, it was just a beautiful thing within the wolves culture .

But since this was a world where humans lived, Simon would have to fight here with the current situation on hand . A pregnant wolf meant that it would greatly affect Simon’s ability to use his power during the trial . Even though the villagers in the previous siege did not resist their attack, but the gore and excessive violence of their attacks, it gave Black Wind a lot of damage during her pregnancy .

This meant that she was unable to keep up with the squad, and the other Wolf cavalry team members weren’t willing to put themselves at risk for Simon’s problems . The only reason that the wolves are able to launch multiple attacks in different villages was because of their speed . The speed of the wolf cavalry determined their fate during the trial of death .

Simon stayed behind while the others left . He was the only one that stayed with his wife . He didn’t dare to enter towards the open, the only thing he could’ve done was to hide in the forest and wait for Black Wind to give birth .

Every day Simon was hunting in the jungle, and every time he went out and hunt, there was just enough food for him and his partner to eat and survive . He often thought to himself, when would he be able to own land like these, to have more food than he could ever eat . The wealth of humans in this world often attracted countless Orcs like Simon himself . They all have one common goal – grab it and occupy it .

Every day, Simon carved a line on a tree to count off the days . All he wanted now was to spend his remaining two months safely in this jungle . Then, he could travel back to meet up zone to return home, to his Orc empire .
