We have reached the entrance of the valley an hour before the evening and started to find a spot for camp.
This time we were extra careful when looking at the spot, we are very close to the valley and probably of some corporal level monster coming here is very high.
Sometime later we did find a good spot to set up camp, just when I about to press the b.u.t.ton on my camp gear we found two people coming toward us.
We became vigilant seeing them coming toward us, as they come closer, I got the good look at them. This pair is quite peculiar, one tall and thin while the other is short and chubby.
The tall one is peak level Specialist grade evolver while short one mid-level Specialist grade evolver.
"h.e.l.lo, are you setting a camp here?" Asked the tall boy, he is not good looking but he had a face which gave a familiar and harmless feeling.
"Yes, we are. Is there any problem?" Rhea asked, her behavior is very cautious. it is very hard to trust others, especially those who in the same condition as us.
I had also been very careful when I followed the signs of rhea in the cave, I only relaxed when I found her familiar.
Our interaction with Shawn and control was completely different, they had no interest in whatever measly things we were carrying but two people in front of us are completely different.
They are the same us and came from the same place as us and will be very interested in whatever we have.
"No, no problem, we just came here to invite you," he said, we looked at him questioningly at his invitation.
''You guys are also trying to pa.s.s valley right? We did that yesterday but we come across the corporal level monsters, so we decided to wait for a few people before going into the valley." Explained the chubby youth, Andrew.
I nodded in understanding, we also thought we might come across some Corporal level monsters but had not thought there will be many Corporal level monsters in such a small valley.
''We were just about to cook food, you are welcome to join and it will be very safe if we put the camp in one place to defend against unforeseen circ.u.mstances." Said Neil.
''Ok." Rhea and I said in unison after thinking through, it will be very hard to defend against Corporal level monster if attack us night as even two us won't able to beat it but it is completely different for two people.
"follow us! Our camp is not far from here," said Neil and walked with Andrew, rhea and I followed behind them.
"Why do want to cross the valley?" I asked.
We want to cross it because we have a map, after crossing the valley we will come across the lake which will likely be gathering spot for many people.
From their talking, I can conclude that they have a specific place to go which is only possible if they have a map or someone had told them.
''Aren't you going scind forest?" He asked, scind forest one of two forests of this realm, the one we are currently in know as Conrad forest.
"Scind first?" we both asked in unison, why are they going to the Scind forest.
He removed the square paper from his pocket but soon it tuned in to foot length paper on which map is drawn, it looked identical to ours but it has some extra markings on it.
"four days ago, we saw a rider flying through the sky, throwing these maps from above, it says that they had found an exit of this realm and asked everyone to reached there within two weeks," Neil replied.
We were quite shocked hearing this news, we thought we know if someone knows anything when we reached the small lake but looks like westblood had already sent the rescue.
"Can you show us the map?" asked Rhea, I also want to see the map if what he said is true then our way home is already found and we just have to reach there.
"Sure!" he said and gave us the map, as we looked at the map, what he said true. on the front of the paper is printed map and back of it has information that Neil had just told us.
There is even seal of government on the map which can be forged easily. "Thank you!" Rhea said while holding back the map.
Scind forest is another part of the realm, to reach the Scind forest from Conrad forest, we have to travel through Westland.
Four days had been already and only ten days had remained, if we cross the valley in two days, we will have eight days to reach the Westland and seeing the distance, I am confident we can reach it in six days if any unforeseen circ.u.mstances didn't occur.
even if they occur, we have an extra two days, I don't think we will come across any major problem in the wasteland as long we pa.s.s the valley safely.
Soon we reached Neil and Andrews camp, They found a better place than us and is quite defensive if any monster ever attacks.
Another thing is their camp, It is true Grade 1 camp not like mine which s barely reached the Grade 1, It can even hold against Corporal level monsters as long as one has enough Corporal level core crystal.
It is black in color and ten people can easily sleep inside it comfortably.
"You don't have to put your camp, you can sleep in ours?" Neil offered to see me putting on our own camp, "It's okay! we don't want to impose." I said firmly. seeing me declining, he didn't ask again.
We don't know them enough to sleep in their tent, Rhea and I had already discussed this when we were coming here.
As rhea about to prepare for the food, this type Neil again invited us to eat, this time we didn't decline.
Chubby Andrew started to cook front, he seemed quite an expert in cooking food.
Soon the food is ready and everybody started to say but just like always, the first to eat food is little glutton Ashlyn, she gave everyone a good laugh by her antics.
Neil had an angry looking Iron Hog monster, it is higher rank species of Searing hog. It is a cla.s.s 9 strain monster which known for its extreme anger.
''Andrew where is your monster?" I asked, seeing Andrew had called his monster.
"It is resting! It got fatally injured yesterday," he said.
After dinner, we made plans for tomorrow, as both of them had ventured into the valley.
We left for our camp after an hour of discussion. We decided one will keep watch for two hours to guard against unforeseen circ.u.mstances.
Rhea offered to keep the first watch, I nodded and slept, she will wake me after four hours after hers and her ministers watch is over.
