C20: The Goblin Treasure (6)
A second goblin general appeared from the depths of the settlement. The adventurers froze as they witnessed this desperate scene. However, the despair did not end there.
Lime murmured in a trembling voice. Just as she had said, a third goblin general appeared from inside a ribbed house in the village.
“Oh, my God, are you kidding me?”
Mertina said in a stunned voice. The goblin general is a rare monster that appears only once every few years. Never have three of them appeared at the same time.
“We’re retreating! You guys get out of here now!”
The black-armored adventurer’s decision was swift. He immediately rushed over to the fallen leader and opened the scroll. Seeing that the other two had gathered, he activated the return scroll.
The magic written on the scroll is activated. It’s a spell that instantly transfers the user to a pre-registered location, and is often used by adventurers. The figures of the adventurers from the Golden Sword party disappear from the village.
“We’ve gotta get out of here! Everyone, come with me!”
“I don’t have a choice.”
As expected, Lime didn’t try to fight in this situation, but approached Mertina who opened the [Return] scroll just like the black-armored adventurer.
A goblin appeared from the depths of the village. It was smaller than the goblin general and about the same size as an adult male. Perhaps it was a mutation, but its skin was red instead of the typical green of goblins.
“Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh…”
The sight of the red-colored goblins brought back childhood memories in Lime’s mind. A village attacked by goblins. A burning house. Her mother and father confronted the goblins to help her and her sister escape. She and her sister flee hand in hand. However, they were soon caught, and my sister became a victim of the goblins…
“My sister’s revenge!”
Lime starts running towards the red goblin. Mertina and Katie reach out to their friend who is running out of scroll range.
However, a goblin general stands in front of them.
Mertina was forced to make a decision. Should she go after Lime and fight the Goblin General, or abandon her and leave this place?
“Gah, gah, gah, gah!”
The other goblins gather around. She had to fight the two goblin generals while dealing with the other goblins. It was impossible, no matter how she thought about it.
“I’m…I’m sorry Lime.”
Mertina made a ruthless decision. Regardless of Katie’s screams, she activated the scroll and teleported away. The last thing they saw before the transition was Lime on the ground, pinned down by the goblin general.
