2) The tournament !
« hey guys look over there! » Exclaims octavis pointing out a giant mechanism, the room was strange, some unknown metal things surrounding the walls, those were pushing each other making everything move!
« What the hell is this ? » asks Diane staring at the giant mechanism
« ahem.. I called this.. a train! » answers Einar coming out of no where then continues : « it’s a way for us to move without needing a horse..it’s also way faster! You see all these iron things on the wall? Those are gears ! It was thought by me and my superior brain..I created something that moves without any action applied on it! » He Exclaims and chuckles
Meanwhile bjorn and Hisao are having a conversation
« tell me...do you know something I don’t? » asks bjorn
« no, not really, unless you haven’t heard of the Troop. » answers Hisao
« i did hear about it, everyone talks about it all day. »
« no, not this Troop..im talking about the Wraith Troop ! » continues Hisao
« oh..no I don’t » Replies bjorn
« every year the king gathers specific people to make them join the Troop and send them outside of Cimmeria into some places for special jobs...I don’t know more. » explains hisao
«ah...i understand...what happened to the other Troop members? » asks bjorn
Hisao scratches his moustache and says:
« probably dead. »
« Mrithun...i think I’m gonna leave.. » Says Ama gazing at Mrithun
« Wait..what?what do you mean?? » asks Mrithun confused
« I got really important stuff to do...I can’t go with you in this adventure..” she says saddened
“no need...I’ll come with you!” Replies Mrithun
Ama blushes...she gets her face closer to Mrithun..
”hey hey hey you’re coming with us big boy” Exclaims genesis and grabs Mrithun by the back of his shirt
”no no I can’t I need to..” Says Mrithun as he turns around, he sees Ama leaving and waving him.
Mrithun drops on his knees
”WHHYYYY!!” he yells
Octavis holds his laugh
Genesis puts his hand on Mrithun shoulder
”it’s okay Mirthun, you at least have your best friends!” He says with a enormous smile
”it’s Mrithun dumbass..”
”everyone! Get ready for the tournament!” Exclaims a guard leading the fighters into an underground using some type of mechanism, he called it “elevator”
The underground is absolutely giant, you couldn’t see the end of it, it seemed like an isle, surrounded by water.. all of this was under the castle!
The fighters faces were amazed
Bjorn advances to the king “ what is this tournament exactly?” He asks the king his arms crossed
“look, you see this isle? That’s where it is going to happen!” Replies the king
”how are we going to get there?” Asks bjorn
”oh don’t even worry. Everyone listens! I’m going to list the duo’s! If you hear your name. Come closer and pick a two badges in this box! Every badge has a number, one is yours and you will wear it on your chest, the other badge will show you the number of someone...if you see someone with the same number as your second badge...once we reach the island on this marvelous boat you’re all stepping on...kill him.” Explains the king..everyone is stressed they don’t want to hunt their friends!
”first duo ! Kir and kirtsune! Please come closer and grab your badges”
”shit.. we’re not together..” complains Vkar
“say that to yourself...” answers Kir looking at kitsune, it was the beautiful girl he noticed hours ago!
”fuck you kir!” Says Vkar annoyed
Kir steps closer and grab two badges, his shows 2 and he hides the other one in his pocket
”what if we have to hunt out duo partner?” Asks kir
”in that case, you won and you won’t have to kill your duo.
Everyones goal is to reach the temple in the middle of the isle, but only 10 people will be accepted in ! The rest will die, in other way if you realize only ten people remain, no need to kill your target. Just head in the temple.
”second duo..nobunaga and takeda!”
Hisao suddenly looks at them, he seems to know them then pulls down his hat to hide his face.
“Third duo...Bjorn and Diane!”
“Oh lucky lucky” Says Diane and they both grab badges
”fourth group Mrithun and octavis”
”something seems off here...” Says Bjorn questioning
”don’t say that! We’re lucky!” Replies Diane
The king kept listening other random people names..
”eleventh duo Vkar and a clone of himself...”
Vkar laughs “alright I’ve been exposed I can do that, he pulls out a pencil from his back and draws a stick man on the sky, the stick man’s eyes became green and he is alive!
”how did you know?” Asks Vkar looking at the king
”I know everything.” He says with a mysterious voice
”twelfth duo...Hisao and Genesis”
”ah shit sorry mirthun im with the ninja guy!” Says genesis
”thirteenth duo, yellow kimono and Vulcan”
The guy named Vulcan stepped closer he is really tall and muscular has a pretty nice black beard, he is bald and is wearing a blacksmith dress and has a huge hammer on his back
He skin is pretty tanned and has a scar on his left eye.
”hey hey volcano guy!” Says mily and waves him!
”oh hey little girl!” He greets her with a handshake and scratches the back of his head, he looks tough but he is really smily!
”fourteenth duo/group whatever and the last...octavis and the..huh..can..master?” The king says confused
A man with an can costume and a black bag covering his head steps closer.
”oh well hello..” Says octavis but gets ignored..
Octavis picks a number but none of his friends are the targets..!
“Those badges aren’t random..notice how all of us aren’t targeting each other..” whispers Bjorn to Diane
“yes... it’s weird we blindly picked those from that box though...” she replies
“the king is hiding something and I will find what.” Says bjorn
”don’t do anything stupid Bjorn.”
Meanwhile Hisao walks towards takeda and nobunaga with his scarf covering his face,
” hey guys how is it going !” Says Hisao and puts his hands on their shoulders.
”who the fuck are you?” Asks nobunaga
”oh sorry wrong person.” He says and walks away.
The boat arrived to the isle. The kings steps on the isle first with his guards and says:
”you all can go! Oh and one thing watch out....wyverns.”
