“Tomorrow” however, was too early for Lillin. She laid in bed for two days before finally regaining consciousness. The three adventurers prepared to set out once Lillin had fully recovered. They thanked the kind woman for letting them stay and bid her and her children farewell.
“So, we’re heading to another village?” asked Leo.
“Yes,” Grunt answered. “We will continue on protecting villages while searching for the other destined children.”
Leo thought about it for a while then blurted out, “What if you are the fourth destined child? We’ve been journeying together and Lillin turned out to be one of the destined children too!”
“What do you mean?” Lillin interrupted.
“Don’t you remember anything?” asked Leo.
Lillin shook her head. “None at all. All I remember was that we were fighting a huge force of undead.”
“You killed most of them in a single attack,” Grunt said.
Lillin was surprised. “Really? I don’t understand. What happened?”
“Do you remember charging up your rifle for one final attack?” Grunt explained. “Instead of your usual electric cannon, a gust of green cloud was released by your rifle. It seemed to be a very strong poison that killed a majority of the undead.”
Lillin remained silent.
“Grunt said you may be one of the destined children. And I think you are!” Leo said smiling.
“I am not yet sure about it but it seems that what triggered your hidden ability was the same as Chris and Leo,” Grunt speculated. “The elements that the three of you were able to control are different. If you are indeed a destined child, then the last one should be the one controlling the element of fire.”
“I’m still not sure about me being a destined child, but if one of the destined children controls fire, how are we supposed to distinguish him from all other pyromancers?” asked Lillin. “Among the four elements, fire was successfully passed on up to our time.”
“I don’t know,” Grunt said. “Let’s just hope that he stands out from the crowd.”
After two hours of walking, they saw sparkles and flashes of white and red in a distant field.
“What is that? It looks awesome!” Leo said with excitement.
“Come on! Let’s see what’s happening there,” said Grunt.
