27 Ambush again
Kael waked up and then he pushed-ups hundred times. He exercised to build his strength while he's still young. Kael washed then changed clothes for his new day. He went outside and then closed the door of his room. He met his other adventurer friends while he walks downstairs.
"Hey, good morning!", said the mage.
"Good morning too! How's your sleep?", Kael asked.
"It's good!", he replied.
"The others?", Kael asked.
"They were waiting in the carriage. Let's catch up with them. Don't worry, we have launched at the carriage on hand.", the mage said to him.
They traveled to the carriage and then met with the others.
"Have you eaten yet? We have freshly baked bread here. Let's eat while we're on our way.", said Fred.
"Okay, so let's go!", said Kael.
They went inside the carriage and then they ate their food.
Kael was silent on the rest of the way. He was pondering why the war broke out and why the human king was greedy of ruling all the races.
They passed through the bricks road of the barbarians, the laborers were not present this time and they all were relaxed. The road was again bumpy and their relaxed mood ends there. The construction was still unfinished. Kael was sitting at the back while whistling a happy song. They all enjoyed their ride and the party's morale went up.
"What did you observed at the barbarians Kael? They are prideful but peace-loving people aren't they?", Fred asked him.
"Yep they were rather a peaceful kind of people but be careful not to offend them. They were a bunch of battle maniacs.", their priest said to Kael.
"Really?", Kael replied.
"Yep, don't make them angry", their mage said.
"Okay!", Kael replied.
Kael engraved it on his mind and remembered it. It was better to remember their advice because they will be a great help in the future.
They were traveling and they saw a carriage that was blocking the way. It was full of arrows and holes and was severely damaged.
"Halt!", said the driver as he stopped the horse.
"Check for survivors! But be careful of another ambush", Fred said to them.
Kael went outside together with their paladin and their leader. Their ranger was watching the cliffs and was ready to alarm them anytime. Their mage was also ready to fire a spell anytime.
The knight and paladin raised their shields and approached step by step. They scanned the surroundings and saw that the horse was not there.
"They were ambushed for sure.", said their leader.
"Probably bandits, barbarian bandits. Look at the carriage, it has marks left by axes.", said the paladin.
The approached the door and then on Fred's signal, they kicked the door. They looked at the inside and saw nothing. Only bloodstains that littered the floor were left for them.
"Well that was anti-climatic!", said Kael.
After Kael said it, their ranger shouted.
"Arrows!", he screamed.
Kael and the others take cover and their ranger fires at them.
He initiated a skill that fires rapidly for three seconds. He killed four after the skill expires. He then takes cover after they rained their arrows at him.
The barbarian bandits then ambushed them. They were hiding at the bushes, some were at the broken trees. Some jumped at the cliff.
They all screamed while holding their axes.
"Regroup!", shouted Fred
Kael and the others went back their carriage to regroup.
"We're surrounded! Again!", Kael screamed.
He draws his sword then defended their selves. The enemies were numbered twenty plus and they were only six.
They used their skills to kill the enemies.
It killed five of the enemies that were hit by a fireball and rapid shot. Their enemies were blinded by the light so they have time to attack them. They killed another five before the blinding flash wears off. Ten were left that were unscathed.
The enemies also initiated their skills.
They rapidly slammed their axes to them and they were at pinch. Kael rapidly slashes together with them.
Sounded their weapons and shields.
Kael coped up with their slashes but was slowly tired out due to their heavy strikes and it was fast. He successfully wounded one but he was injured too by three slashes of axes on his hands.
"Axe slam!", said the barbarian who made his skill; Slashing it vertically.
Kael defended them and his sword almost broke due to the impact. He managed to defend it but his strength was almost used up.
"Skills were really troublesome.", he exclaimed in his mind.
Fred slammed his shield then slashed his enemy. Killing it with a deep wound.
Johansenn fires his arrow to the enemy but he blocked it with his axe. Andre fires his fireball and it struck the one who Kael was dueling. Kael ducked at the right time and struck the other one.
The priest healed Kael with the "minor heal" and his wounds on his hands have disappeared. Kael didn't waste time then immediately attacked.
Estes, the paladin slams his hammer to his enemy.
He landed his strike to his enemy and then slammed his shield. The enemy was thrown to the impact.
"Seven left!", shouted Fred
"Kill them all!", shouted the barbarian leader.
They again attacked and were fiercer than before.
"You wanna die! then die!", shouted Fred
They attacked and then the knight and paladin who were positioned in the front, held their shields with greater strength. They attacked and Kael was protecting the priest and mage.
The fight continued. Their knight and paladin blocked their attacks and then Kael was behind them.
Bang! bang! bang!
Kael held his sword and then attacked it together with them. He jumped and then slashed one of them vertically. He killed one and then retreated in the opposite direction. They occupied two and Kael occupied another two.
"Come here scumbags!", he exclaimed.
The barbarian bandits attacked him. Kael approached them while holding his sword. He turned and slashed one then another. They are wounded and then blood gushed out from their body. Kael then approached one from behind and pierced him from the back.
"Damn you!", the other barbarian blurted out in anger.
Kael then went behind him and knocked him out with his hands from his nape.
