Night came and it was very peaceful and quiet. The villagers who stayed behind went down to their small compartments to hide and sleep. Grunt, Lillin, and Leo waited near the village gate and prepared themselves for the arrival of the undead.
“Do you think they will come back?” asked Lillin.
Grunt shrugged his shoulders. “I am not sure but it’s better to stay here for at least one night. We might also find some clues.”
The three waited for several more hours. At around twelve midnight, silhouettes rose from a nearby field. Leo immediately prepared his widgets and scattered them outside the gate covering a large area.
“Judging from their figure, it looks like they are indeed, the undead,” Grunt said.
Lillin and Grunt hid behind the village walls while Leo remained visible from outside. The undead saw him and rushed towards him. Their numbers are overwhelming and their faces are terrifying. Among them are the Skeleton Knights, Zombies, and Shadow Bats. When the front was almost near the gate, Leo activated his widgets. A tremendous electric current ran through each of the small widgets, releasing a devastating electrical attack. The raiding undead were electrocuted and couldn’t move, but only the shadow bats died from the attack.
“Grunt! Lillin! Help!” cried Leo.
Lillin and Grunt immediately went outside and saw what happened.
“Since when did the undead become immune to lightning attacks?” Lillin asked in confusion.
“I don’t know but we have no time to waste!” Grunt said. “Kill as many of them as possible while they still can’t move.”
Almost immediately after Grunt said this, the undead started to move.
“Leo, can you activate the widgets again?” asked Grunt.
“I’ve only used it once at the most, but I’ll try it again,” Leo said.
The widgets then released another strong electric current.
“Lillin, continuously fire at them with or without the electric current!” Grunt ordered. “They are electrified for ten seconds at the most. I will kill as many as I can near the gate and return inside before they can move again. Leo, activate it once they start running again!”
All three followed Grunt’s strategy and were able to kill a quarter of the enemy force. However, when Leo activated the widgets for the fourth time, the widgets shattered into pieces. The undead rushed towards the gate with frenzy.
