Story Of Legends Chapter 25In the Hariken kingdom, everyone was getting ready for tomorrow in their room at nightfall.
At the time was Riku looking at the stars in the sky alone from the balcony of the Palace in the kingdom.
Dearer approached Riku slowly and says "After all those fights, you are awake."
Riku replied "I am just thinking."
Dearer said "what are you thinking about?"
Riku "I think about what awaits us in the future."
Dearer "The future is always full of surprises,we never know what will happen,so always think of the present in your life for the future."
Riku "What if we fail?"
Dearer "Failure is a choice,but we choose choices."
Riku "I want to ask you something else."
Dearer "What is it?"
Riku "What was my father like?"
Dearer smiled "Your father was just like you, always thinking about the good of everyone, or always thinking about the future. When your brother was born,he was thrilled,but one day a fire started in the clan, an eternal fire, your father sacrificed himself to save your mother and you."
Riku "I am going to do my part too."
Dearer "Vengeance will not bring your father back, and The Sun God's present power is almost equal to Zaldra's."
Riku leaves slowly, saying, "I don't like revenge, but it's customary to get even."
Dearer smiles and looks at the stars and says "He looks just like his father."
In the morning, Riku and the others prepare to leave in front of the palace. again, two groups were established.The first group will go after the God of death,while the second group will seek an ancient wizard to break Kelcie and Sugu's curse.
In the first group there were Lara, Gorou,Cuno,Zen, Kiroy. In the second group there were Riku,Kelcie,Sugu and Wendy. Dearer stayed in the kingdom to protect there.
Arito cathed up to them and said.
Arito said in pain "I'd like to come with you as soon as I get better."
Lara said "You're gonna stay here.you're not fully recovered yet."
Arito said "I'm fine.I'm fine."
Dearer said holding his shoulder "You will guard the castle here with me, kid, if you leave now, you will only waste your power."
Arito said "Be careful." looking at Lara.
Lara approves with her head.
Dearer said "Hey kid ,do you like this girl?"
Arito blushes in a moment "What! What made you think this, no such thing sir!" as the shame of saying he looks at the floor.
Dearer says smilinfg "If you say so."
Riku looks at his group and says
"Zen, have you made the devices I asked for?"
Zen "Yes, Boss, here they are."
"You will keep the tracker Riku and We'll get the Beacon. When I press the device button,the signal will come to you, then you can kill Hecta, don't kill him until I give the signal. If you do that, Kelcie and Sugu will die with Hecta."
Everyone jumps on their horses.
Kiroy "My little brother, try not to die." "If I die, I'm sure we'll come back sooner than you do." Kiroy "You're funny, little brother, but keep dreaming ' cause that's not gonna happen."
Riku smiles and says
"Then, May the first one win."
Kiroy "We have a deal and one more thing. take care of your woman."
Riku said angirily "Dont talk nonsense."
Then Zen yelled "What are you guys doing a wedding next week?"
Then Wendy replied "Whaaaat? you already married and four kids?"
Riku throws ice at Zen's head and says "It was a mistake."
Sugu silences everyone by saying "Stop fooling around and focus on work."
When they arrive at the exit of the kingdom.
Riku says before the two groups leave "Be careful". then when it was time to leave One group drove fast towards the west.The other group beginned to drive towards the east.
As he goes on horseback, Zen asks Kiroy "Why you dont use your dragon?"
Kiroy replied "I can't call him every time, and I miss riding."
"so by your calculations, when will we be there?"
Zen "If we follow the my path, we'll be there in 5 days."
"Why does the road always have to be so long?"
"Patience is the most precious thing a warrior has,my friend,I'm sure we'll arrive soon."
Gorou "if you say so."
Lara "Remember, we'll wait until the signal arrives."
Zen "by the time we arrive, they'll be done.
Kiroy,"Let's hope so."
Riku's group was moving fast.
Wendy "It's been a long time since I rode with Kelci, and the last time we were 14, I hit my dad hard."
Kelcie laughed "Yeah, good times."
Wendy "Do you think the ancient wizard could be our relative?"
Kelcie "I don't think that's gonna happen."
Wendy "Why? he is also has a blood of a wizard."
Kelcie "Yes, but there were no ancient wizards in our clan."
Wendy "makes more sense when you said it,so I hope she or he is a good person."
At that time,Riku saw Sugu in a quiet and contemplative manner.
He Asks her how she is.
Sugu "I'm fine. why?"
Riku "You seem a little distracted."
Sugu "I was thinking like you, in case we don't make it."
Riku "It won't happen."
Sugu "If we fail,don't hesitate to stop Hecta, finish him off, forget about us."
Riku "Dont let your brain get filled with dumb questions or visions."
Sugu "You don't understand,if he gets his strength back, he'll be invincible this time, just do as I say, please, for everyone's sake."
Riku "I couldn't save you the first time, but it's not gonna happen this time."
Sugu says "You havent changed since that day."
Riku "And you are still stubborn like you were before."
They both smile while looking each other.
Ath the time, In the kingdom of Hariken, Arito and Dearer were walking around the palace together,talking.
Arito "If it's Okay, tell me about your battle with The Sun God."
Deaerer "Why do you want to know?"
Arito "I'm just curious, and they tell your story a lot back home."
"The evil ruler of ice, Deaerer."
Deaerer "They don't call me that anymore, that was a long time ago."
Arito "So what they call you now sir."
Deaerer "Just says Deaerer."
Arito "How did the war happen?"
Dearer "Alright then, I tell you, one day the fire clan attacked us as usual, it was easy to defeat them but impossible to defeat their master. The last time they came, they had the sun god with them.
it was like a fire that wouldn't go out. He could burn his body out whenever he wanted.He could shoot fire from anywhere and he could shape fire. He was almost zaldra's height,black eyes,red hair. I couldn't control my anger because of my son's death and I fought him to the death.
by the end of the war,half my body had been burned, I had lost my grandchildren.Very few of my clan were alive.I've been fighting since that day."
Arito "I'm sorry for your loss, Actually I never knew my parents, but I have a lot of brothers."
Dearer "Do they have powers?"
Arito "No, just me, gorou and my sister."
Deaerer "What power does your sister have?"
Arito "relives the life of the person he touches, and on rare occasions their future, but we haven't told anyone that she has power, only you and gorou know and I do."
Deaerer "I understand."
Jiiku had reached the river of death. The river of death was a green river with spirits in it. The spirits were caught in the stream, moving in an orderly fashion to the end of the river.Jiiku's job was to protect the river. Since there were more than one creature that wants the river to disappear, the river had to be protected.
Therefore, there must be a Death Guard, the God of death. The river also had a curse that if any mortal other than God of death enters, they can become a creature or die suddenly. Jiiku hasn't left the mountain of gods since he came there. but one day he was summoned by the Council of Gods.
When Jiiku entered there, Zaldra beginned to speak.
"The God of death will grant you a duty that many gods have tried to do,but none have succeeded. There's a creature in the eastern seas called Miyanon, a creature that can't be killed.The creature is 25 feet tall, pointy-toothed and immortal."
Jiiku said "Why didn't you kill it?"
Zaldra "The Beast has a curse,I or anyone on the council can't kill but you can,if you do, I'll do something you want as a reward, What do you say, God of death."
"I accept your offer." ~Jiiku
