Chapter 73 - The Race
"Hmm, I wanted to give you a chance but since you said you're leaving then alright, bye," Gustav said and turned around.
"Eh? When did I say that?" Angy said with a frantic look as she reached out to grab him.
"I thought you were leaving?" Gustav turned around with a look of confusion.
"No, I'm not leaving, please give me a chance," Angy said with a pleading look.
Gustav chuckled internally after seeing her reaction.
"Alright then," Gustav said with a solemn look.
"Your Bloodline grants you speed right?" Gustav asked.
Angy nodded in affirmation.
"If you can beat me in a race, I'll let you join me during the night patrols," Gustav proposed.
Angy eyes slightly widened, "Beat you in a race?" she questioned with a doubt.
"Yes, if you cannot do this then I'm afraid you can't work with me," Gustav crossed his arms and leaned his back against his door while waiting for her response.

Angy complied and followed Gustav.
Some minutes later, Gustav and Angy had arrived at the sparse forest area behind the neighborhood.
They stood in a particular spot where small trees could be seen scattered around.
Gustav finally stopped walking when he arrived in between two trees that were spaced apart by fifty feet.
"We will be racing to that tree over there!" Gustav pointed at a particular tree ahead that was more than fifteen meters tall.
It was one of the tallest trees around here so even though it was a bit far, it could still be seen clearly.
Their current distance from here to there was over two thousand meters.
"The first to touch that tree wins!" Gustav exclaimed.
"Alright," Angy answered and got into a running stance.
Gustav had remembered that Angy
