Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 1041
The Battle Is Drawn
After standing in line for what seemed like an eternity, the young group of friends had finally arrived at the front doors of the massive building before them, called PAGES!
Adrenaline surged vigorously through their veins as their hearts funded louder and louder with every passing second.
They didn’t know if it was an illusion or not.
But at the moment, they felt like the building before they were almighty.
At this moment, it felt like it was a gigantic mysterious building that was sky-high and heavenly.
They swallowed big gulps and steadied themselves to enter the world of books on the other side.
They so badly wanted to bury their heads into the freshly opened pages within the mighty store.
No wonder they named it PAGES.
The name of the bookstore indeed matched their d.e.s.i.r.es right now.
The group of youngsters felt their legs wobble as they slowly walked in, taking their baby steps for the day, into the store.
It wasn’t until they reached the new ‘Manga section, did they realize the urgency of the matter.
How could they forget that they were here to battle?
Their eyes shone with a ruthless light as they quickly separated into groups just as planned.
Some would focus on grabbing the 2nd Chapter of Inuyasha, while others will grab the 2nd Chapter of Hunter x Hunter instead.
Of course, they had to be careful about what they were grabbing because they didn’t want to accidentally collect the first chapters again.
They already had the 1st chapters from both Mangas.
So in the heat of the moment, they still had to make sure that they read the cover properly.
Well, provided they picked the ones that said Chapter 2 on it, then that was all that mattered.
Again, another team would focus on picking the 1st chapter of some new Manga, called ‘Kuroko no basuke.’
Today, they were here to collect as many as they could.
“Natsu, your team will handle the new manga.
Linda, you guys will get the 2nd Chapter of Inuyasha, and the reader of us will get the 2nd Chapter of Hunter x Hunter.
Look! More people are coming in.
We don’t have much time!!”
With that, the groups separated and quickly began one of their numerous battles.
In every Baymardians life, they had bought bravely within the stores.
It had become common, so much so that kneepads and other protective gear were always worn when new merchandise came out.
That was just the way it was.
And now, the legacy continues.
Very quickly, little Momo ran ahead and hastily moved within the crowd like a slippery snake.
To this day, as a royal, he still received training.
Soon, someone noticed his actions and quickly tried to grab his clothes.
“You kid! Get to the back!
There’s no way I’m allowing you to grab a copy before me!!”
The person fitted his mouth and stretched his hands out towards Momo, but Momo quickly ducked and forced himself through someone else’s legs, crawling away speedily.
One would think that he would be safe now, but that was far from the truth.
The person he passed underneath all flared up when he saw someone trying to sneak ahead of him.
“Brat! Don’t even think of getting a copy before me!”
Momo, who was still all 4’s on the floor, was on high alert as he quickly tapped the back legs of the person in front of him, making him weak.
Like Dominos, this move caused a chain reaction, making those behind fall on each other.
“Dammit! Of all times, you choose to fall now?”
“No! If I don’t get a copy now, it’ll soon be out of stock. Just look at how empty the shelves are looking?”
“No! No! No! You all get off me!
I have to know what happens next! I have to know if Kagome is fine or not!”
Seeing that his plan had worked, Momo smirked, and once again, stealthily moved through the crowd, moving through any gaps he spotted.
Of course, many also tried slowing him down, but he quickly counterattacked until he finally got to the front.
But even till this moment, there were still people grabbing his clothes and refusing to let him take any of the books before him.
He quickly grabbed the available copies and began his journey of fighting his way out again, while protecting the books.
Because if someone took them, then it would be game over.
Feeling the sweat trickling down his face, Momo had to admit that the battle was indeed a fierce one.
Fortunately, there were no casualties of war.
And by that, he meant he hadn’t lost any books.
Soon, a few others in his team came back with the same books.
At this moment, they felt unstoppable!
We did it! We got the 2nd chapter of Hunter x Hunter!”
“Awesome! I feel so alive!!”
“Lying trough. Why do I feel like we just saved an entire empire?”
“Yes. I feel the same way. Finally, we can know the truth about Gon’s exams.”
“Hmhm. Now we can… Ahh… Momo, you have a scar above your eyebrows. Oh! There’s blood coming out of it!!”
“Eh? So I have a battle scar?
Hahaha… It was worth it! Truly worth it!
This is proof that we won the war!”
“Yes! This is proof!
“Awesome scar, bro.
We finally won the war.
