In a snappy manner, Yves took the bag of money and ran for the door. The dwarf was after him but he tripped and fell. “Run!” He said to Xavier with a smirk on his face and they had vanished. The day had finally turned into night. It was quite a long road before they had reached an auberge. They had a feast and rested like never before.
They had gotten back to the weird place because that is where Yves saw that thief of a bird had landed. To they surprise, the door of the fort was left open. “Wait for me here while I go in. If I do not come back in ten minutes, come looking for me. Understood?” Said Yves. “Yes, I will count until six hundred and if you are not back by then, I will come with all what I have got of strength.” Replied Xavier. As Yves had firmly and slowly made his entrance, he had noticed the bird standing in a distance and the bag of money was laying next to it. Though, something was odd about...
This bag of money is quite heavy. Could it be that he gave us more than we deserve? It does not matter anyway now that we have left that weird place.” Said Yves to Xavier. “Let us go to one of those restaurants and have us a decent dinner, shall we?” Suggested Xavier. “Sure, why not?” As they were slowly walking, they could hear some hissing and other noises coming from animals hiding on both sides of the road. Suddenly and out of nowhere, a big bird had snatched the bag of money out of the hands of Xavier and flew away high. In shock, Yves quickly reached into his...
It was not that heavy so the task seemed easy to Yves. As they moved forward, the weather had become less hotter because the sunset was close. Finally, the village had become in sight. They continued marching. The old man gave them the directions and they have reached their destination. It was a fort that had a huge door. “Bang on the door.” Said the old man. They did and approximately two minutes later, the door opened, a dwarf came out, took the monitor inside, and came back a while later with the reward money.
Xavier and Yves stood close to the object and the old man started enunciating his command to them. “I need you to carry me, I mean carry this monitor to a spot in the village and for that I will reward you with money. How about one hundred Francs for each and every step?” Asked the old man. “You have got yourself a deal.” As Yves held the monitor in his arms he felt the supportable hotness of it.
Xavier and Yves looked at each other confused. “Should we trust him? What if he could suck us inside that box of his and keep us trapped?” Questioned Xavier. “That is unlikely to happen. Don’t you think he would have already done that if he could?” Replied Yves and confidently approached the box. To that, Xavier had no choice but to agree. The box was nothing like they had seen before. It was screaming sophistication and very futuristic.
As they continued walking, a box shaped object with a screen had become noticeable in front of them. It was as if somebody had intentionally put it there. As they came close to it and all of a sudden, the screen had come on and a face had appeared. It was of an old man, he had wrinkles and short white hair. “Come close, don’t be afraid.” He said in an authoritative manner.
A ruthless eagle was piercing the vast blue sky which had no uniquely shaped cloud. Down on the ground and in a distance, Xavier and Yves were slowly walking. Xavier looked a little tired whereas Yves seemed more ruthless and determined than the eagle.
Nothing was in the horizon. On the side of the road there was cactus trees which bared green and not yet ripe prickly pears. Temperature was high. “Stay strong, Xavier, I have a strong feeling that soon enough, we are going to reach our destination.” Said Yves with an optimistic tone and gave Xavier a pat on the back.
