Figuring my way out of the forest, I don't really know how long it will take to reach the Palace, my body barely can keep up with me.
_ With the severe injuries I have, I don't really know how am I still alive till now, but I'm feeling my skin healing a little by little , maybe it's one of the magical powers they have here.
I'm going on with the fear of the thought of being cought by the knights now, I'm pretty sure that they won't let a dark power user escape from them that easily..
It's been three days now, and I'm getting closer to my destination, I think it will take a few more days to reach it, but I'm really hungry and exhausted.
Well, my body is somehow fully recovered, but my powers are still weak, as a result of that I couldn't really search for food, but I think I can now, maybe catching a fish will be easy.
Standing be the creek, I'm trying to locate a fish for catching it, my power is failing me now but I'm sure I can at least put the fish in air bubble out of the water.
_"come on, air bubbles are so easy I know this can succeed "
_" Oh! "
It's two, I have cought two!
And while moving them slowly toward me, a sudden noise of wild animals fighting started getting very close to me from behind, I got very startled and the fish fell down the water, as the air bubble popped up.
In a brief moment, turning my back to see a huge ferocious wolf with a bleeding neck in front of me, it looks like it ran away from the fight or it just won over the others.
Baring its fangs, the wolf is looking at me with a terrific eyes, and I really don't know what to do in this moment.
_ Should I run? Or should I just stay still? Should I act dead or show that I'm stronger?!
The wolf is taking steps toward me.
_there is no space to take steps back, I'm on the edge already.
The wolf is getting closer and closer, until its just one step away from me.
_"Okay fine! You want to kill me? Eat me? Go ahead and do that! I'm already fed up with everything! See this?! Do you see this blood on my cloths?! Do you want me to tell you how I got it?! "
I feel like my legs can't carry me on, and fell down my knees.
_"If death this time will give me peace, then just go ahead and kill me".
But what I got and a response was a lick on my cheek.
The wolf sat down in front of me, looking at me straight in the eyes, I can understand that it doesn't really intend to harm me.
_" You are not planning to kill aren't you? "
_"Um well, Why are you alone? Wolfs usually stay in packs? "
His ears dropped as if it understand my words.
_" You.. Had a fight with them, is that why you are here? "
A nod as response, I now get that the fight back then was with his pack members not outsider, guess he is a troublemaker.
_" So... Where are you gonna stay now, if not with your pack"
He really doesn't know.
_" Whatever, are you hurt anywhere? "
Pointing at the neck, It looks badly injured, I think I can heal it with my current power.
_" I will try to help you, so stay still okay ".
_" Heh, you are really obedient, I don't really know how much my power can do, as I need food for energy"
_" You know, the fish that you made me drop "
Looking closely, it's white fur looks and feels so nice, also with deep blue shining eyes, what a pretty animal!.
I doubt its just an animal by the ability of understanding me, maybe it's a shape-shifter?
I didn't really meet one before but they have their place in this world.
Lucky I could completely heal his neck, but now I'm really lacking energy.
_" You are fine now, and I need to find food really quick "
I tried to make some air bubbles, but I couldn't anymore, the wolf was watching me and suddenly jumped into the water.
_" What the?! "
And in a few seconds it came out with some fish in it's mouth to put it in front of me.
_" That.. Is for me? "
_" Heh, guess that was pretty easy for you "
After a few days, here I'm standing in front of the Abandoned Palace, its night about midnight and there is nothing beside moonlight to illuminate the place .
_" Ah, it's really a dead place".
It looks like those hunted houses in horror movies, luckily I have Kera with me, that makes it less scary than it is.
Oh, Kera is the wolf that I met few days ago, somehow she decided to follow me around, and I came to know her name.
Well, it's nice to have a companion even in a gloomy journey.
Anyways, I'm here now, and I hope this will be the start for my plan.
