As the sun set over the mountains, the surroundings were enveloped in darkness in an instant.
Snow fell again from the sky.
I needed a place to escape the cold.
I spread out the map on a flat rock.
Map symbols were in alphabetical units.
The rock in front of me is marked with an A.
The huge boulder to the right of the crevasse B.
I blinked and adapted to the darkness.
I glanced around.
My prediction came true.
Both A and B were huge stones.
A sign is a rock, B is a bigger cliff rock, and C is probably if I’m right…
Wouldn’t it be a big rock that can hide my body?
I groped my darkened eyes and found the rock marked on C.
To get to C, I had to climb a narrow mountain road.
Fortunately, it was located not too far away.
I took a deep breath and put my foot on the sloping hill.
One step, one step.
I stepped carefully.
My arms trembled.
It was a really weak body.
If I go back, I will eat more and train my body first.
When I put my fourth foot up, something caught on the bottom of my shoe.
A different sensation than when stepping on other parts.
It was moss.
I lost my balance as soon as I said it.
In an instant, my feet slipped straight.
I stretched out my arms to keep from rolling down the hill.
With a thud, I fell awkwardly forward.
While struggling, her arm was scratched on the edge of a stone.
The sleeves of her coat were ripped in tatters.
When I rolled up my clothes, I saw that the wounds I had gotten from fighting with the head maid in the dining room had reopened.
The wounds were more vivid as the cold winter wind touched them.
I closed my eyes and bit my lip.
At that time, I was just hungry.
I suddenly felt sad at the thought that I was now cold and left alone in the dark.
But there is no time to shed tears.
I untied the waist strap and tied it to my arm to stop the bleeding.
There are no flashlights or candles now.
Before the sun went down, I had to take a thorough look around.
As I cleared the wound, a cold wind wrapped around my arm.
The cold chill tightens the pain of the wound
Climbing up the mountain, I managed to find the rock shown on the map.
It was a small cave.
It was a better harvest than I expected.
I can block the snow for now.
I need to make a fire.’
Upon entering the cave, extreme cold and hunger swept through.
Blowing on my frozen hands, I picked up a dry twig.
I cut branches that had not accumulated snow and piled up firewood.
I put a branch on a wooden board and rubbed it with my palm.
The fire seemed to burn out, but then it went quiet again.
I rubbed it for a few more minutes, but there was only faint smoke rising from the tree.
There is only soot on the wooden floor
It must have been because many branches were not dry due to the constant snowfall.
It was just that my stamina was exhausted.
I finally gave up and hid my frozen hands under my collar.
My whole body trembled, and my teeth clashed fiercely.
It was really terribly cold.
Far from running away, I would seem to freeze to death in the North.
Being imprisoned and withering to death, being disposed of according to the schedule in the original work, or starving to death while completely consuming food and drink in the room.
But the verb was nowhere to be found.
It was a death I hadn’t even imagined.
The wind in the mountains was so cold that it could not be compared to the dungeon.
I buried my head in my lap and bowed down.
I felt like I could endure the cold if I crouched down a little.
Just as I was enduring the drowsiness that came over me little by little, I felt a shadow linger at the entrance to the cave.
The shadow inflated its body as it grew smaller and larger according to the moonlight.
Did reinforcements come already?’
I raised my head.
I always wanted to get away from him, and run away, but in this situation, I felt like I wanted to run to him in one step because I was glad to see him.
I carefully straightened my back.
And when my eyes met with the shadow, I felt strange.
a sense of being incompatible with people
From a slightly lower place, it emits a snort that is hotter than a person’s.
‘It’s not reinforcement.’
It’s not the refreshing blue eyes I’ve always met face to face.
At the entrance, yellow eyes fluttered.
The black shape that seemed backlit became more and more clear.
The wind blew with a shyaaa sound.
The leaves of the pine trees that were blocking the moonlight bent in one direction.
Thanks to that, the moonlight brightly illuminated the entrance to the cave.
A wolf stood at the entrance.
I had goosebumps all over my body.
The moment our eyes met, it felt like my breathing stopped.
In front of the cave, a large white wolf was quietly staring at me.
I couldn’t breathe and froze in place.
I was terrified.
Wolves run in packs.
The fact that a male wolf came here means that there is a high probability that there is a pack not far away.
Maybe it was wandering around looking for food and ended up in a cave.
There might be another group behind you.
I picked up the long twigs I had piled up in front of me.
And swung it into the air.
“Go, a…way! Shoo.”
However, contrary to the desperate wind, the wolf shook his head once and came closer.
Was it a provocation?
I was the one who dealt with the Duke that was said to be like a beast.
Indeed, I was helpless in front of a single beast.
The large beast came closer, backed away, and then came back in again.
It seemed to mock my frightened appearance.
A wolf’s long shadow stretched across the entrance.
Every time the wolf’s shadow reached my side, I was startled and backed away.
It looked like it would jump into the cave at any moment and swallow me.
Sweat formed on my forehead.
I didn’t notice it because I was fighting with the wolf, but my head was burning.
The bruises on my arms came belatedly.
Sweat trickling down from the heat quickly froze in the cold, then froze again.
My body got colder.
My whole body was trembling.
