Mental-image battle - I swear I am super fine.
Wow! Incredible! Truly incredible. I am sure Mother Elena was the one who did this. But I wonder how she did it.
This also confirmed my guess that something came up yesterday. My eyes squinted. I need to hurry to find her.
With all these precautions she prepared, I am more determined now to find her.
As I was changing my clothes, I noticed something hanging on my neck.
Thats right. There was a makeshift necklace on me. I guess it was Mother Elena who put it on me.
When did she put it on me though? Maybe when I was asleep yesterday. I just noticed it. I touched the pendant and gawked at what I found out.
”Its a 1 dollar coin! ”
I spaced out and looked into the distance.
Clenching it in my hand, I said to myself, ”…the more I need to find her. ”
I wrapped my body in a brown cloth and pulled down the hood deeply to cover half of my face like a mysterious traveler. Well, so that whoever I encountered would not directly think that I was a wandering baby.
Also, if by chance I encounter Mother Elena somewhere, I can act as though I am someone else or something. Well, anything as long as she can figure out that it was me.
I hid a knife under my clothes. Its for self-defense purposes. I also strapped a pouch on my back. In it was a bottle of milk and water in case I became hungry on the way.
I can carry meat or any hard foods because I can chew them yet. Moreover, I don think my stomach could handle those types of foods at this age. I admit Im not sure about it, but prevention is better than cure, they said.
Looking that everything was ready, I didn waste any more time and started my search.
But, where should I start looking for her? I looked around and think.
Hm, for starters, lets check for clues around here, I said in my mind while facing the forest that was located a few steps away to the right of our house.
I can directly go to the farther areas because there was a high possibility of me getting lost. I need to familiarize myself in this area first before trying my luck somewhere.
Walking under the shade of trees, I glanced around me. I saw the suns rays, like diagonal beams, passing through the gaps in the leaves that serve as the roofs and sending warmth to me every time they touched my skin.
As I continued moving forward,
I unintentionally stepped on something. When I looked at the ground, all I could see were grasses, dry leaves, and small dry branches that fell from the trees around. Nothing worth noting to serve as clues.
I continued walking while memorizing the path I was taking, so I wouldn forget it later.
From time to time, I took a rest and drank water.
Even if I wanted to continue, my body couldn handle walking for a long time. So every few minutes, I have to rest for a while before continuing my search again.
A babys body simply could not handle this type of activity.
Glug, glug, glug, aaahh!
After drinking some water, I continued my search again.
I suddenly heard some noises ahead of me when I arrived near a swamp.
If I wasn wrong, the sound seemed like the roar of some wild animal.
I carried the knife and slowed down my pace as I carefully advanced toward the bushes a few steps ahead of me. There was where I heard the noise coming from.
After carefully pushing away the bushes to unblock my field of view, I peeked and looked over.
Nothing was there ahead of me. It was just an empty green field. ”Hm… ” But the sound came from there, Im sure of it.
I suddenly heard again the growling sound. Now I am more certain that it was truly coming from there.
I came out of the bushes and followed it. And then to my surprise, the plain field I thought was a moment ago was actually a cliff. I carefully moved closer to peek down.
I saw that this cliff was quite high. I believe its thirty-plus feet deep.
At this height, I would be dead if I fell so I have to be careful. I crawled to the ground to make sure I didn fall if I lost my balance by accident. I have to take every precaution to ensure my safety.
My eyes widened slightly when I looked below.
Wait! That is…
I saw something familiar to me. I quickly searched in my mind where I saw it. Fortunately, it didn take a while for me to remember it.
…one of the ferocious-looking creatures I saw in the book! I exclaimed inwardly when I remembered it.
Since I could not read what was written there, so I don know how the book describes it. But seeing it right now personally, I can tell that it was scary and that I should avoid it no matter what.
That one is big bad news for me.
Although I did not understand what was written there, if I base it on the drawing itself, it is like an illustration of ferocious creatures in order. Well, Im not sure but thats my suspicion and understanding from the drawings I saw in the book.
And if my suspicions are correct, that one is at a higher level compared to the other creatures out there.
This one… you cannot say is a kind of animal or beast. Maybe monster is more appropriate to call this one.
I mean… its form is not far from a giant worm. It is scary and looks fierce. There are sharp, seemingly lateral, sharp bones sticking out from its head to its tail.
Its skin is gray and black and it can also be seen that it seems to be the size of a bear.
The giant worm lifted its head and looked in the direction where I was spectating.
