Soon, we began our journey deeper inside the cave in searching for my father's coffin where I was to see him for the last before death parted us apart. The last time word really upset me that made me hardly able to smile that I couldn't be at ease as my heart was praying for me to be able to see him and probably might be able to hear his voice for the last time. Hans who was searching for the faint presence led the way all throughout the damp cave. The further we went, the colder the atmosphere been as if it was trying to prevent us from getting much further.
Beyond my expectation, Hans took off his coat and wrapped it all around me with that expresionless look on his face. I was staring at him unbelievably and let out a thought of, “He can be generous at times.”
“Don’t think of wierd thing. Since you are a useless vampire, the probavility for you to catch a cold is high. I don’t want to end up taking care of my own food-supply while there’re tons of vampire that I need to annihilate,” He explained.
“Oh, I just can’t tolerate with your vulgar words!” I shouted while sobbing.
“You’ll get used to it. Besides, I think we’re almost there,” His sapphire eyes gleamed beautifully inside the dark cave as his grey hair fell from his head covering his forehead. He gently shifted it away from his forehead. Since that we hadn’t been able to have our proper rest, we had been in a bit fatigue due to the long journey and I could see that from Hans himself. Well, of course he would since he had been fighting with Cyano just a while ago.
“Inside this canal is where you are to find your father, the one on the left,” He gestured towards a dark passage that was divided into two.
I quickly rushed inside the passage and found nothing inside it. I turned backwards and stared towards him with an angry stare that I thought that he might be making fun of me but instead, he held my hand and dragged me towards a hole somewhere nearby where we stood. He pulled out something out of it while saying, “If it comes to a serious matter, I will not dare occupied myself in being irresponsible. Keep that in mind.”
I nodded for a ‘yes’.
There it was, my father’s coffin. I quickly opened the lid of the coffin and found myself a half-wilted vampire who was lying still inside it.
“Dad, dad... can you hear me? Are you still alive?” I asked without any hesitation.
The vampire shifted his eye-lashes and was now staring at me with a frown on his face, “Could it be?” He gently laid his hand on my face. He let out a warm smile and said, “Long time no see, my daughter. Have you meet Cyano just now?”
The sudden question led to a complete silence thoughout the atmosphere. Hans paced back away from my father, maybe feeling a bit guilty of his act. None of us dare to say a word or even to tell the whole thing that happened just now. Even Bat too was too sad to give out any expression. He just stared at him without a word.
To be continued.
