Known to be one of the dangerous forests on the planet Zulus, Dusk Forest was feared by everyone. No one knew what's in the depth of the forest as anyone who went in those woods beyond the outer area never returned. The forest was divided into two regions. Inner and Outer.
Outer region covers a distance of roughly 5km from the edge of the forest and after that comes the inner region which remains unexplored till today.
Even the outer region is very dangerous if someone ventures without proper equipment and training because of various dangerous monsters and poisonous bugs/plants.
Somewhere at the Eastern entrance of the forest there were silhouette of 4 black clothed shadows entering the forest under the moonlight. They were running so fast that in just few seconds they disappeared in the forest.
After travelling for a few minutes they stopped near a small pond and one of them dropped a small bundle and said in a cold voice "Hey Boss, how about we leave this little guy here? It's not like they will know where we left him. And even if this place is not that far from the entrance I don't think he will be able to live by tomorrow morning."
"Boss, is there nothing we can do about him? His mother was very kind to us. Can't we just drop him to an orphanage?" said a voice also belonging to one of the four black cloth humans.
*sigh*..."If it would have been possible I would have long ago sent this poor child away from all this shit but alas the new Clan Matriarch is keeping her eyes on our every move thus we can't do anything suspicious or we might lose our life. Anyways leaving him here is good too. Untie him and feed him that pill given by Matriarch" Said one of the black clothed figure in a old voice with some sadness.
Hearing him one of them crouched and opened the bundle revealing a small boy of around 3 years. He seemed to be sleeping or from the condition he is in might be passed out. He has black hair and a cute white face which will make anyone want to pinch his cheeks. He was wearing a black shirt and pants with a black casual shoes. His hands were tied by some kind of rope.
After untying the little boy the black clothed man took out a small glass containing a black pill. He took out the pill and quietly switched it with some other pill while no one noticed it and made the boy swallow it. After checking everything was fine he stood up and bowed towards one of the black figures.
"hm. It seems we're done here. Let's leave"
just as he said that all four of them vanished from that place leaving that child in the forest.
around 5 mins later after those figures left from the place there was another man running through the woods from the same area at a speed which would have put the previous men to shame. Though he had aged face with his head full of grey hairs his body seems to emit terrifying energy. He was wearing a white shirt and red pants with red boots. while passing through the pool area he frowned and stopped on the branch of a tree while looking towards the pool.
After a few seconds he started walking towards the lake muttering "Interesting, if I wouldn't have been using my life aura detection skill I would have missed this child. But who would leave such a small child in this dangerous forest."
After coming to the lake he came to where those 4 black clothed men left the child and crouched down and when he saw his face he exclaimed under his breath "Whoa! it's him. The young master of Sykea clan. Though Those face loving arrogant bastard would have gotten rid of him sooner or later but leaving him here at this age is still too much. Well whatever it seems I got someone to continue my legacy hehe"
While talking to himself he picked up the child now identified as the Young Master of the Sykea Clan and vanished from that spot.
Just after a few minutes he vanished from that place many figures wearing black cloth just like those four men came at the same spot and started searching. After a few minutes they all gathered at the place where the boy and the old man vanished.
After all of them vanished one of them shouted in an angry voice" Where the hell is that bastard?"
Hearing his angry voice one of the black clothed men shuddered and kneeled down and said in a fearful voice "B..oss t..th..those 3 traitors left him here and af..after that I don't know what happened to him. M...maybe some monster took him as dinner?"
"I don't care if some monster took him or whatever. Listen Ted those 3 are dead and only you are alive from their group. Although Matriarch said that you will become one of the clan guard after finishing this mission but if we don't find that bastard by the sunrise don't expect to leave this forest alive. Everyone search around."
After few hours they all gathered to the same place but their numbered seemed to have been decreased.
"Boss we were unable to find him and we even lost 6 of your brothers I think we should leave this forest. He might really heave been taken away by some monster in the forest or this lake." said TED nervously
"Hm.. Okay, we will leave and when asked all of you will say that he was devoured by Neo Panther and you guys saw with your own eyes. Clear?"
"yes Boss". all of them said and vanished from there.
After few minutes of travel they reached at the entrance of the forest where there were 3 armored vehicles were parked. Near those vehicles there were 3 dead bodies of black cloth men who left that child near that lake.
After coming out of forest all of them started moving towards the vehicles and left from there leaving behind the dead bodies.
