Alomitsu - Chapter 41
Chapter 41: Nightmare (9)
“What is it that makes the ground vibrate?”
The broken ice and snow on the frozen tree fell on the ground, and a pair of blood-red eyes emerged in the dark dense forest. We wanted to retreat back, but there was a cliff behind us, and we had no way to escape.
The darkness hidden behind the dense forest gradually revealed its body in our sight. I swallowed my saliva. The indescribable fear instantly frightened me. The man-eating monster that had appeared in ancient myths actually appeared in front of me.
It has white fluff as thick as a hemp rope. It had no neck. Its short, thick head was tightly attached to its body. Its head aws also covered with white fluff. The fluff covered its whole body.
Its belly is like that of a female in the seventh and eighth months of pregnancy. It had no legs, only two feet similar to a goose. Its arms were thicker than a ten-year-old tree. Its palm structure was the same as that of a gorilla. It had grayish-yellow skin, the eyes hidden under the fluff reveal the coldness of snake eyes.
It grabbed the big tree next to it and swayed continuously, and the tree made a wailing sound. Within a few breaths, the big tree was shaken lifted by it, just like a person lifting a stick.
“God, I never thought there would be such a terrible monster.” Tadek raised his head and looked at the raised tree, the fat on his chin kept shaking.
He bent down and roared at us with a mouth full of sharp teeth. The foul-smelling wind spewed from its mouth, and the snow on the ground splashed. Our clothes flew back with its roar. Sticky yellow saliva dripped from its mouth.
As long as the tree hit us, we would be sludged!
Ayatos did not expect such a terrible creature. It was like the snow giant described in Norse mythology. We jumped separately.
When the tree hit on the ground, the sound was deafening. The wind screamed, my eardrum was almost broken, and a golden thread appeared in my sight. This was what people call gold stars!
It lifted the big tree and prepared to attack again. I quickly climbed up the snow. My calf was still weakened by fear. It was another attack, but it was not towards me, but at Ayatos.
A sound that was louder than a cannonball sounded, and a piece of snow rolled towards me like a sea wave. I was directly knocked by the snow. When I stood up nervously from the snow, I found Ayatos and the Tadek running down, and the vicious snow monster picked up the tree and attacked me.
I was so scared that I grabbed the tree next to me and climbed up like crazy. The tree that came interrupted the trees I was climbing, and the tree I was holding was blown away.
I held half of the tree in the air and screamed. The tree rotated and fell in the ice. The tree I was holding was inserted diagonally under the snow, and I was thrown onto the snow.
“Young man, run.” Ayatos roared at me, and he waved at me to signal that there was a good way out.
My figure was not stable yet, and I couldn’t control so much. I shook a few strides and ran towards Ayatos and the others.
Bang bang bang~
The snow giant stomped on the spot, just like a Japanese sumo wrestler preparing to make some kind of attack.
From the corner of my eye, I saw it throw away the big tree and bend down. It held it with both hands and tilted one of its shoulders close to the ground. It was about to sprint!
“Catch this, ink guy!!” Tadek did not know when to pull a vine towards me, and I jumped up and grabbed the vine.
The two were pulling me. They wanted me to run faster, but I had used all my strength.
However, the speed of the Snow Giant was too fast. It was like a meteor that glided in an instant. The gravel and mud on the ground were lifted up, just like the water surface where the bow of the ship was sailing.
“Can I really hide from it?”
At this moment, my brain was blank, I just ran, avoiding its frontal impact. The mud that was lifted up lifted me up. My body fell heavily on the snow, and I couldn’t breathe, as if a knife stuck into my chest.
“Stand up! Young man!” When my brain was full of dizziness and pain, I heard Ayatos’ voice.
Bang bang bang~
The Snow Giant, who stopped two or three hundred meters away from me, found that it had not hit the prey and sprinted again. The second wave was about to come.
“Young man, watching you lying there motionless, are you planning to stay there like a scarecrow? Have you forgotten what you said before?”
Ayatos was very impatient. I also wanted to run right away, but my brain was really dizzy. I couldn’t stand up.
Damn, damn, damn, why can’t you stand up if you haven’t received any substantial injury.
“Tadek, you go and run with the young man with your back. I will cover you.” Ayatos took out the oiled sheepskin from his bag.
“Ayatos, are you crazy? Do you really sacrifice your life to save him?” Taddek screamed.
“Stop talking nonsense. I I need to explain at this critical moment, none of us can escape,” Ayatos yelled at Tadek.
“God, this damn bitch always drags us so much.” Taddek desperately ran to my side and lifted me up.
“Eat this, you bastard.” Ayatos ignited the oil bag and threw it towards the Snow Giant. The sudden rising flame made the snow giant step back in fear.
“Why? Ayatos,” I asked the old man feebly. Why did he do this for me? Is it really the reason he said?
“Don’t be crooked, I just saved you. I used to be a father, and now I am also a father who takes care of a stupid son. I have done the same thing for him. And, like you, I had the same thing when I was young. With blood and courage, I didn’t have much time left. Now, I don’t want to quibble, at least let me go ahead of my son and die before him.”
“Leave quickly.” Ayatos drew out his dagger and angered Tadek who was carrying me. The panting Tadek only heard the old man’s roar and ran down with me on his back.
Under the cold white moonlight, Tadek ran down. Above, I heard a rumbling explosion.
“You bitch, why did you appear in our lives,” Tadek roared resentfully at me.
“I’m not a bitch. I’m Dante.”
“I don’t care what your name is, you are a bastard. You disturbed our lives!” Tadek still cursed at me. I wanted to hit him back, but a gentle drop of water flowed down Tadek’s face in the moonlight. Dripping, this gave me a look of consternation. In my impression, stingy, timid, and wimpy people would shed tears. I had already been wiped out by alcohol for his feelings.
“You don’t understand anything. You don’t understand anything!
“Always, all the time. I understand everything. Even if I am a miserable person, as long as I am with my family, at least I will survive.
“Do you think you know everything? You don’t know anything! You are always like a protagonist, thinking you are calling others to pay for you. Why do we have to listen to you?
“Bold words, good things are better than anyone else. Even if we are small characters that you look down on, we also have our own past and life,” Tadek roared angrily.
At this moment, Tadek turned his head to look at me, tears criss crossing his face. He gritted his teeth and said to me.
“You ruin my only one, and I will ruin your entirety!” At this moment, I understood why the names of Ayatos and Tadek were so weird, they knew each other’s identities but none of them revealed them.
The corners of my mouth were cocked. That’s how it was. I hit Tadek in the neck with a punch, and Tadek fell to the ground with his eyes wide open. I knocked him out.
“Tadek, I owe you and Ayatos a lot of favor.” I covered Tadek’s body with snow, leaving only a nostril and mouth for Tadek to breathe. My purpose was to prevent Tadek from being discovered by priest beasts, so I covered him with snow.
I picked up the oil bag and flint on my waist and took out half of the knight’s sword from the Tadek’s bag. I didn’t expect Tadek to have such a thing. When I was ready, I raised my head and looked at the silver moon in the sky.
“Tadek, no one is a supporting role. No one is born to serve others. Each of us is unique. Now, you are great and very outstanding.
“Here, you are the protagonist, and I am the supporting role. How can the supporting role let the protagonist die? I will definitely bring your father back safely.”
I turned my head and glanced at Tadek, and the fiery emotion burning in my chest made me rush in the direction of Ayatos.
“Although I am not from a famous family nor a family of knights, I am not a timid, selfish and reckless person.”
My head was not as dizzy as before. I ran as fast as I could with a half of the knight’s sword. Under the cold moonlight, I stepped on a rock and jumped.
“Ayatos, you must hold on!!”
