* Huff * * Huff * * Thump * * Thump *
A youth with white hair and pale skin kept his eyes half closed as he looked at his enemy with great determination, it was a bear at least 6 feet tall which roared with fury at seeing a "little ant" challenge him ... I am the king of this forest, insolent! ... His look was full of contempt and his red eyes indicated the high degree of his anger. The teenager in front of him did not flinch, he did not feel fear in his heart, but his body did not seem to think the same, he was trembling slightly asymmetrically; his hands were unconsciously shaking as they held a cracked wooden sword, which constantly had to be rearranged as it slid due to a large amount of sweat that ran through every corner of his body. His breathing accelerated every second, and his chest seemed to be about to explode, an hour ago the battle had begun and neither of them gave his arm to twist.
I'm very exhausted, * Huff * * Huff *, but I still do not see any openings in his defense, uh... it seems I recently hit him on his left leg ... Chris was surprised to see his opponent slowly lifting up his left leg, although there was no blood, the delicacy with which he made his movement was the perfect evidence of a sprain... he is wounded, he will not attack me for a while, so I will be able to check and treat my wounds superficially... he took out of his "blanket" some leaves moistened with medicinal and craft liquids while looking at his rival with ferocity in the eyes, and distributed them around his body quickly while screaming in his heart...
This is very painful! ... he was surprised to see a large number of scratches that were on his body, but the deepest wound was in his left leg, which he received a while ago in the only exchange of blows that hurt the bear ... This will not be enough !, I need to keep my speed, that's my only advantage! ... he convinced his hands to move and pressed his "medicinal leaves" against his leg until they penetrated the wound, the pain was unbearable but the rewards for victory were immeasurable ... I can not lose! ... he clenched his teeth and screamed loudly, the whole forest heard his roar, it was the sign that someone had challenged the king of the beasts. All the animals that were in the vicinity fled in terror, and a silent atmosphere adorned the battle that was about to continue.
* Roar * * Roar * * Roar *
The bear could not stand the haughtiness of his opponent, so he decided to end his life immediately; He ran to Chris as he roared and prepared to tear off his head with a single bite ... Very fast! ... Chris did not have much time to be surprised, slid under the body of the bear and hit with all his strength the right front leg of your enemy The bear emitted an almost imperceptible moan, his pride was superb, but his body could not pretend, he shook violently and he decided to flee, without his front legs there would be no way to win.
* Sigh * * Sigh *
I want to chase him, but I should not do it, even a rabbit when he sees his life in danger of death will be a fearsome opponent ... Chris argued as he fell to the ground, he was very pleased with the results of the battle ...
"Nothing impressive, but still, you acted calmly and treated your wounds when you had the chance, well done" A great dragon appeared in front of his "son" and spoke with contrasting tones, on the one hand he wanted as every mother to congratulate Chris for his work, but she knew that he should know that he is never strong enough, to survive on the continent glass water you need the determination to dominate the world, or if you will not be devoured by the storm.
"..." Chris smiled as he stood up, complained a few times about his body and prepared to leave with his mother, today's training was over.
They both walked for a while, no soul could be seen in the vicinity, no one except Chris dared to approach the true "King of the Forest", an imposing female dragon over 340 feet tall, long and sharp claws, and a look ominous Upon arriving home, Chris sat cross-legged while absorbing martial energy using a method his mother had taught him; She, meanwhile, was preparing lunch, a small portion of Bear meat for him and a few full-body crocodiles for her.
"Mother look!" Chris started to shine and a golden light surrounded him completely, he was scared and excited at the same time.
"That's ..." Her mother put on a look of terror, she had seen that glow before. Memories of a battle that nearly exterminated his clan began to flood his mind. She was only a child at the time and the traumas of childhood can almost never be overcome, but ... the past is in the past, and her present is with her "son". She spoke inside her heart while trying to hide all traces of sadness.
"Chris, it's been five years since that promise, I think it's the time you know the truth ..." She spoke with a sad tone and paused to then continue, the departure of her son was approaching.
"Fifteen years ago, I was already living in this forest, I spent my days sitting on top of a mountain, it was very boring and suffocating, I saw the unreachable skies and I asked myself: why am I so big and so small? I felt there was no place for me; on earth I was huge and everyone was moving away from me, but the heavens were very vast and although I tried it countless times, I could not cross them. "Another pause came and his gaze became melancholy.
"But in a rainy niche, a miracle happened in my life, I was looking at the authority of heaven over life with envy, and suddenly heard a deafening crying, I went to its source and saw a blanket wrapped around something, I felt a lot of curiosity and I took it carefully, then I saw you, a very beautiful human child, your big red eyes stopped crying when they saw me and my heart was moved; I thought you would be scared, but you smiled in your place, I found a reason to live there and ... I was very happy ... "She could not hold back the tears and many tears began to water the earth.
"After taking you to my house, I realized that there was a sword on your back, it was very bright and mysterious, and next to it was a necklace with a jade dragon, keep it in a safe place because those are the only memories What did you have of your origin? "She slowly pulled out the two objects in question.
"Origin ..." Chris spoke unconsciously, he felt that his heart was constrained by an unknown entity, it was the unbreakable family ties echoing.
"My son, it seems that you are ready, do not forget me and remember that this will always be your home ..." She gave him away from her family memories and dismissed him with great sadness.
"Mother, I will become a great man and I promise that no matter what I find out there, you will always be my mother" he hugged her and started to cross the "bordering tree", he was a little nervous and felt he was walking towards the forbidden land. He turned his face and smiled, this was the best farewell, he began to run and the sadness of before vanished as he swore to make his mother proud and to know the new and vast world that appeared before his eyes.
