The first trap that got in her way was laser beams. She carefully stepped over and under several of them until she accidently stepped into one. Instantly, the laser beams disappeared and a door-like part of the wall opened up to reveal 11 sharp long arrows aimed at Tigress. They shot straight at Tigress. From impact, Tigress fell back on the wall with her arms straight across the wall and her legs apart with her eyes closed, preparing for pain. Then she noticed a few moments later that's she's still alive. She slowly opened her eyes to see the 11 arrows missed her slightly. One over her head, two besides her neck, two below her arms, two over her arms, two besides her legs, and one between her legs right under the pant's split.
But, that's only 10 arrows.
She looked up in front of her and saw one jammed. Before she even thought more, the arrow shot straight to her. Shocked, Tigress crouched down on all fours just as the arrow cut off a bit of her head fur. Then it landed on the wall, right where her heart was a few seconds ago. Tigress stood up again and started the next trap, this time with caution.
Then she started with the next trap. There was nothing. Tigress figured it could be some sort of floor trap. She suspected it would be better to put it in a test. Tigress took off a piece of a rock from the rocky wall and simply tossed it on the ground. It rolled and it bounced until finally it pushed down a square part of the rock floor. Quickly, one part of the ceiling opened up and 3 sharp, spinning circular blades came down, blocking her path. Repeatingly, the blades went up and down in turns. Figuring she can't go around, she'll have to go under one at a time. Easily, when the first blade was up, she crouched down and took a step forward. Then stood up again before the blade went back down. She repeated that a few more times and she was out of the trap.
The next trap was again a clear area, but one thing for sure there's a trap. Again, Tigress took another rock and threw it gently forward. It landed and nothing happened. Tigress assumed it was okay to cross until the floor trap open and the rock fell in. Curious, she waited to hear the rock land, but never did. Though the trap is very deep, it had to be at least a few meters or so wide. It will be a challenge to get past it. Tigress had to either jump over or climb across the ceiling. The ceiling wasn't an option because the rocks beneath her paws could get loose and make her fall in. So the only other choice is to jump. She backed up and tried to take in as much space until the blades were touching her fur. She had only a yard or so of ground. She shifted to her four paws and crouched down very low.
Focus. Tigress repeated in her mind.
Because she doesn't have all her memory, she doesn't have much techniques, such as meditation. But that didn't stop her, she tried her best to focus. Then she ran forward quickly. She grabbed the edge with her front paws, then her hind paws, and pushed with all her might as she jumped off. She flew above the hole. But she didn't get the result she wanted. Instead, Tigress got hard hit to her chest and almost fell into the hole. But her instincts made her get a grip of the other edge. This scene was definitly familiar to her. Then she remembered. She was falling off a cliff when she didn't get a grip anymore. Then something saved her. It was Jeia. Shaking the thought away, Tigress climbed the edge carefully and laid on the ground, relieved. In a few more seconds, she stood up again and looked to the next trap. But there was no traps. Right in front of her, the weapons. Tigress went towards it.
Tigress quickly stopped and said, "Those traps were too easy. Something's not right."
But ignored it later. She went towards the two weapons and held it in her paws. But then she slammed them in the ground.
"They're decoys!" Tigress said angrily, looking down at the stick and metal ball.
"What, you don't want them?" A voice said from behind.
Tigress growled at the familiar voice and turned around.
OMG! 4 comments in 1 day! New record! Well, for me.
Thank you. I'm feeling better now. Oh yeah, the "Bon appetite" thing. Well, the whole Ch. 44 was from my sis. She wanted to do a part. Just a little bit too dramatic for my taste. (Don't tell her I said that). I hope she can't read this. Oh, sorry if I didn't get that clear. Delgado and the wolves are suppose to be on the look out (also doing their own regular jobs), while Tigress is doing the traps.
Aww, Thank you! An hour?! Either you're a fast reader or I'm a slow reader. I'm thinking both, hehe. Again, thank you.
Thanks! That is a wonderful comment. Oh! I didn't notice I was past 200! I never thought I would reach this!
Thanks. I'm felling better now. Cool, I do that too! I was thinking to put just a tiny bit more detail in the story.
So happy with all the comments, I'm posting tomorrow!
Hi! Sorry I haven't been commenting. I don't really know why I haven't been. And you've been sick? Well, I hope you're getting better.
Also, great story! Haha, I loved how Po thought 'Bon appetit' was Spanish instead of French. Anyway, I can't wait to see how Tigress and Delgado get through the weapons and traps!
Tigress squatted down and hid behind the railing of the stairs. There was a hole in the rocky railing and she looked in from there. She searched for a familiar wolf and found him making weapons nearby. She took her eyes from the railing and sat down against it. She will need to get Delgado's attention without any other wolf noticing her. But how? After some thinking, she remembers that Delgado has sensitive ears than other wolves have. So, Tigress turned around, peeked through the hole and whistled quietly, but enough for only Delgado to hear. As she thought, the second she whistled, Delgado heard.
Delgado tensed up and froze, ears pointed up and moving slowly in different directions. He wondered what that strange noise was. Is Jeia using the flute? He gasped at that. No, it sounded different. Delgado turned around to Tigress' direction, still listening to the sound. It's coming from this way. He thought as he eyed the direction suspiciously.
When Tigress knew it was safe to show herself, she was about to put her head out from behind the railing so he can see her. But the nightmare, what if it's true? Could Delgado betray me? No, he wouldn't... would he? She thought, keeping her from showing herself.
"Hi." said a smiling figure beside her.
Tigress, shocked out of her thoughts, quickly kick the animal to the jaw. A loud bark of pain came from it as he stumbled backwards. She took a better look at the figure and realized, it's Delgado! Tigress quickly came out of her hiding spot and went towards Delgado, who was covering his snout with his paws, and his eyes tightly shut, to hold out the pain.
"Delgado, I am so-" Tigress began, but then had a feeling of eyes watching them. She turned her head to the right to see the many wolves with weapons looking at her, barely blinking. Well, this is a scene. She thought. "... sorry."
After an awkward silence, the wolves then turned aggresive as they viciously snarled at her with their knife-like teeth baring and their pointed-ears flatened. They all started to run towards the feline, ready to attack. Now, it was too late to go back. Tigress got into her fighting stance, baring her teeth and growling as well.
After the pain dialed down, Delgado opened his eyes in time to see what was going to happen. He had to stop this. He went in front of Tigress, facing the running wolves. "Heal! It's Tigress! The one I told you about! She's just in disguise!"
The wolves stopped as their leader blocked their path to battle. But after what he said, they went from fierce to friendly. They all smiled at the two and went back to work, making even louder noise then before. They made sure they made enough noise so Jeia could not hear them talking.
Tigress got out of her position as Delgado faced her. "Thanks."
"No problem. What's the plan? This is gonna be awesome!" Delgado said.
Tigress was about to tell him about the plan, but his enthusiasm caught her off guard. It was a lot like Po's. Oh no! Po! He must be awake by now! I have to hurry. Tigress thought. Then the sound of snapping got her back to reality.
Delgado stopped snapping his fingers when he knew Tigress was back. "Hello? Earth to Tigress. What happened?"
"Sorry. Just thinking about one of my friends. He has enthusiasm like yours. Actually, a lot more." Tigress responded.
"He, huh?" Delgado said with a smirk.
"Yeah, he." Tigress said with confusion. "Why-" Then it hit her. Just what I needed. She thought sarcastically. Tigress gave him a serious look and said, "We don't have time for that! We need to continue!"
"Fine. But I'm bringing this back later." Delgado said as Tigress rolled her eyes.
Tigress continued. "I just need you wolves to distract Jeia if she's heading to the weapon's room. From what you said, there's traps in there so I will need some time. I'm going to take the stone and flute and escape, so I can take them back to camp. Once I get to camp, I explain everything to my friends and hopefully they would understand. They would protect the weapons at camp while I go back to fight Jeia with you and the other wolves. Got it?"
Delgado simply nodded and led Tigress to the weapon's room. Delgado kept a look out as Tigress slowly opened the door, full alert for any traps. She stepped inside. Nothing happened. After being sure it's secure, she closed the door. Then, turned around to see the 2 weapons on the other side of the room, about several yards away, protected by traps.
Oh yeah, I totally understand. That's what was keeping me from posting the next chapter. But I will now!
Oh yeah. I have to be a kung fu master to do that. I forgot, LOL. I agree, maybe it's because they're busy or sick or something. Next chapter is posted today(finally)!
Wow. I wasn't expecting a new fan! That's great! Gee, I wonder how long it took you to read to the whole thing. The compliment on this story better than some other books you read really got me. Thank you so much.
Sorry for the long wait! Busy and sick at the same time. ugh. Not a good combination. Anyway, enjoy!
if was a kung fu master i would,but since i don't know much i wouldn't. ha ha,yeah,i wonder too why no one is posting even though your story is popular.maybe some people are silent readers or something.i haven't been on here much to keep up with your story but you didn't do chapter 45.so i don't have to catch up.
Po woke up, yawning and stretching. He decided to check up on Tigress. He rolled over to see her and only saw a big long lump under the blanket. He assumed she was sleeping, so he decided to not disturb her. She needed her rest. Po came out of the tent and saw the others already awake. But what surprised him was that he saw Viper squeezing the breath out of Monkey and Mantis. Crane beside Viper also seemed to shocked.
"Viper, I think you should-" Po said but was cut off.
"They deserved it after what they done to Tigress." Viper said and threw them to the bamboo trees, making them half unconscious and fall to the ground. After giving them a glare, Viper turned to Po and asked, "Where's Tigress?"
"She's still sleeping. She must've had a long day." Po said.
"Yes. Maybe because you two were making out yesterday." Viper said, smirking.
"We did not! Tigress accidently fell on me, that's all!" Po said.
"Sure it was." Viper said, sarcastically and before she could continue, Crane interrupted.
"Hey, Po, can you make breakfast?" Crane asked, changing the subject.
"Sure, buddy." Po said, going to the food bag.
Po took out the ingredients for dumplings. He knew they all like that. The smell of Po's cooking woke Monkey and Mantis up and they went over, dazed. Viper hissed at the two and they immediately went to the other side of the fire, not wanting her around them. After Po finished cooking, he passed out the plates with the dumplings. He saved some for Tigress, knowing she'll wake up soon.
"Bon appeite! That's 'enjoy' in spanish." Po said.
The other looked at each other, knowing it was french, but didn't care after eating the dumplings. They were super good. After about an hour of talking and eating with each other, they finally thought of Tigress.
"Uh, Po? Don't you think Tigress should be up by now?" Viper asked.
After a moment of thinking, he said, "I guess I can wake her up."
He then got up and headed for the tent. Po got full, which was surprising to the others, and left some leftovers. While Po was walking away, Mantis walked over to it and dragged the plate slowly to his place. They were too good to ignore. Po got in and went over to Tigress.
He shoved her gently, smiled, and said, "Wakey wakey, tiger baby."
After no success, he gently pull the blanket off. The others heard a scream in the tent and quickly went over to him.
Viper opened the flaps and asked, "What's wrong?!"
Po responded, "Tigress is gone!"
"What?!" They responded.
"Look, I found a note!" Po said, showing the letter to them.
Viper grabbed it and read aloud,
Do not worry, I am fine. I have decided to defeat Jeia on my own. I have it under control. I'm sorry for not assuring you before, but this is my fight. I will explain everything later. Please don't come for me. You all will get hurt and captured if you do. I don't want that to happen. Again, do not come. I'll come back soon.
"Who's Jeia?" Monkey asked.
"Didn't she mention before in this village saying 'Jeia' instead of 'Zira' by mistake?" Crane asked.
"Maybe it wasn't a mistake." Mantis said.
"'This is my fight'?" Viper repeated, confused.
Po can't stand not letting the others know and blurted, "TIGRESS IS HIDING SOMETHING, OK?! FROM THE VERY BEGINNING!"
The others looked at him wide-eyed.
"But that doesn't matter now! We need to find her! She can get seriously hurt!" Po yelled.
"But it says-" Crane began but was cut off.
"I DONT CARE WHAT IT SAYS! I'M GOING TO FIND HER WITH OR WITHOUT YOU GUYS!" Po shouted and turned to leave.
The others stared in utter shock. Po never outbursts like that. They looked at each other and then to Po. They all went over side by side with him. Po looked at them. Then with a smile.
"No one left behind, Po." Viper said and the others agreed.
Po sighed and said, "Good. And sorry for yelling. Now, does any of you know where 'Zira' went after she took you all down a few days ago?" Po asked.
"She went towards the mountains." Viper stated.
"Then that's where Tigress would be too. Let's go!" Po said as he and the others ran off.
Thank you! I was wondering. Did you ever make a story? If so, I haven't seen it. You should make one. Maybe one with your characters so I can know more about them! Anyway, you are amazing! Next chap now!
Tigress ran on all fours out of the bamboo forest and into the fields, the dark night shining. She needs to do this plan before sunrise. Tigress can tell that the night was going to end soon. She was determined to do this quickly and quietly. Finally she stopped in front of it. Dozens of meters away was Zira's hideout. Before going on, she digged a hole, placed her bag in it and covered it up again. She brought it with her because she can't risk the others finding it. After hiding it, she slowly creeped low to the ground towards the mountain, all senses on high alert. She needs to be careful, there are wolves nearby. She winced every time the grass made crunching sounds as she walked through it.
"Great." Tigress whispered, frustrated.
She feared the wolves would hear her as she came closer. Fortunately, she made it to the mountain without being spotted. She stood up in her hind legs again and held her paws out. Her claws outstretched as far as they could. Then, Tigress started getting a grip to the mountain and started climbing. She focused on being quiet, but it was hard since little rocks and snow keep falling.
"Please don't start an avalanche." Tigress whispered, practically begging the mountain.
A little came down, but nothing serious happened to attract attention. But the grip on her feet fell. She tried to get her feet back up, but the snow was slipping her off. Now her claws were her only chance. She reached for another spot to climb on but her claws in the mountain started to slip too. Worried, Tigress went to her orginal spot and held still. It wasn't working. Her claws were still dragging down the mountain, leaving a long claw mark on the mountain. She kept clawing on other spots of the mountain, trying to get another grip. No use. She was dragging down so quickly, she could fall at any moment. The rocks under her grip were loose. She needs a spot with rocks sticking together, hard enough for it not to separate when she climbs it. Then she found an opportunity of survival. She saw a branch sticking out of the mounatin nearby under her. It wasn't thick enough to support her weight, but she had no choice. She waited until she slipped next to it. When she was close enough, she gathered up her strength and jumped sideways to the right towards the branch. She grabbed it, making it break slightly, and pulled herself up. She gave a huge sigh. She was tired. But not done. The branch was breaking within every second of staying on it. She felt the right side of the mountain with her free paw and saw that this part of the mountain was good for climbing. Quickly, Tigress jumped off the branch as it broke and gripped the mountain with her claws. She didn't slip. Relieved, Tigress continued climbing, being extra careful now. Finally, she got to the top, lied down, and sighed with relief.
"This is why I didn't want you to come." Tigress said, looking back at the far away camp.
After a few seconds, she stood up and started her next phase, finding the entrance. She kneeled down and felt for the secret entrance door. Finally in some time, she found it. She wiped all the snow covering it and revealed a big wooden square door with a rope handle on the side. She opened it up and peeked her head in. It seemed dark and the only light was the moonlight shining through the secret entrance. There was no telling what will happen or what's inside since Delgado said nobody but Jeia went in there. But it's the only way Tigress can get in.
'Judgeing by the blueprint of the mountain,' Tigress remembered, 'it was around a dozen feet or so deep.'
It doesn't seem that bad. Tigress took her head out and put her legs through the hole. Then she held on the edge and slid her whole body through. She grabbed the door's rope handle with one paw and before closing it, she let go of the edge. The door closed with a thunk and the room was now completely dark. Tigress kept hanging on for a few seconds and then let go. In a few moments, she landed hard on the ground. She stood up and looked around for the door. Immediately, she saw it with faint lights shining through the edges. She went to it and opened it up slightly to peek out of it, but only saw the wall with torches hanging. Remembering the blueprint, to her left, was the stairs, leading to the main room for wolves. And to her right was a door leading into Jeia's room. Silently, Tigress closed the door and took the left. She went down and then scanned the room, careful not to be spotted. She knows that Jeia wasn't around, but the main room was filled with wolves. She will need another plan if she was gonna go to the weapons room without getting caught. That is the main part of the plan, to get the powerful weapons so Jeia can't hurt her friends. But what Tigress didn't know is that the most deadliest weapon was just in the secret room.
Thanks! I hope Tigress will be ok, too. Even though I already know what's going to happen to her. That's one advantage of being an Author, LOL.
Me: Delgado, you better help her!
Delgado: Why wouldn't I?
Enjoy next chappie!
Hmmm, very good assumptions! Let's just see if you're right in later chapters. Yeah, ummm, how can I say this? The next fanfic is probably gonna be a few months after this fanfic is done, which still has a long way to go. If I'm lucky, I would finish the story in less than a month, but I do want to keep it long. Summer is coming up though. Well, let's just see in the future, shall we? Enjoy next chap!
