The Lycan King

Chapter 91. Home


"Are you sure you want to keep going ahead?" Ava asked wearily.

After the... incident earlier, we decided it was the best for us to stay together and walk carefully instead of running or jogging.

"Very." I replied, gripping her soft hand tighter.

"Whatever is up there, it doesn't want us there." Her sides brushed mine. I'm enjoying keeping her on this short leash.

"Well too bad because that is my land." I replied. "And if whatever is up there doesn't want us there, that means there is something important there that needs protection." I looked straight ahead and kept a steady pace, determined to go to the top. "And I intend to find out what that is."

"But what if we are better off keeping things the way they are? I'm not sure if I like this Nikolai. This place is giving me weird vibes." She stepped closer to me.

"My instincts tell me that I need to go up. They have been telling me that for a while." I told her the truth. "If you are not comfortable, I can drop you back." But I really want her to be with me.

"No. I'll come." She sighed softly.

"Thank you." I squeezed her hand and we continued walking forward.

After a couple of miles, we reached the bank of a river. We have to cross it to move ahead but the current is too fast to swim or walk through it.

It's not safe.

Also, the odd this I noticed about the river was that there was not a single fish inside it.

There can only be one reason for it but I need to be absolutely sure.

I flicked out my claw and made a cut in the middle of the palm and squeezed a couple of blood drops in the river.

"What are you doing?" Ava asked me.

"Checking something." I replied and just as I had thought, a couple of seconds later, a lot of fishes appeared near the bank?? piranhas.

"They will eat us if we fall in the water, won't they?" Ava asked.

I gave her a sharp nod.

"How will we go ahead?" She asked.

"Let me think." I replied and observed the area.

"Can you throw me to the other side, then exchange our places and then flick me to that side again?" That way, she will be out of danger.

"It's too dangerous, Nikolai. I don't want to do it. One mistake and you are dead." She shook her head firmly. "And this river is too wide for me to experiment with your life."

I knew she would not agree but I hoped.

"Can you make us fly in the air?" I asked her softly.

"I don't know. Let me try." She closed her eyes and then slowly but steadily we rose in the air and then moved in a circle above the land itself.

Ava is magic.

We slowly landed again and Ava opened her eyes. "I think I can do it." She nodded.
