The Robomechanic Wanderer

Chapter 9 – Overworld enemies

Collin woke up and felt the rough and hard wood below him. As he looked up he was able to see the sky through where a roof was supposed to be. Or well whatever was still left from the roof, but most of it was laying around him in a rubble.

As Collin was laying down he slowly felt raindrops falling on his face which was the sign for Collin to sit up and look at his surroundings. Most of the walls still stood strong it just contained some holes here and there. The most damage obviously was made on the roof. As more raindrops fell Collin stood up to look for a way outside. To see or any houses still have a roof left to shelter in.

He managed to crawl through the small bit that was left open, from where the door once was and managed to get outside. He looked around and was surprised, that there were still quite some houses left even though some houses were rumbles of bricks and steel.

One big house was still left with a wall around it and a gate which allowed him to enter. But before he went in, he decided to look around for Sophie and Ronald. As Collin walked around to find his friends, there was one thing that surprised him more then how many houses were left. A big portal was flying above the woods that surrounded the village, with a large pair of stairs going down to the ground.

Collin already made a quick sketch so that he can find his way around, and he already marked the house as a possible base of operations. He also marked where the portal was located. Even though with the size you can probably see it anywhere in the village.

The rain did slow down so it was easier to walk around the village. It didn take long before he managed to find Sophie who was near the town-hall as they greeted Collin. He asked or Sophie has seen Ronald.

”Well he told me that he wishes to inspect the portal. I told him that might not be the best idea cause we didn find you yet. But he laughed and said, that Collin wouldn just disappear in a situation like this and he left. Shall we go to the portal then? ”

Collin sighed ”Well doesn seem like we have a choice do we. ” Just like that the two of them left to make way to the portal.

As they walked through the forest they took the time to enjoy the smell of nature and the birds chirping. Which made Collin confused, as he turned to Sophie while they were strolling along the dirt path. ”Isn it weird that the birds are still around while the humans mostly left. Aren they afraid of giant robots? ”

Sophie shrugged it off ”No clue, maybe birds just have more courage then humans. ” Collin looked at the tree, as if trying to see the birds in it

As he continued talking with Sophie. ”Have you found any other living souls in the village? ” Sophie shaked her head ”Nah everything is abandoned most houses are also left behind. I saw a table served for breakfast. It is quite eerie if you walk there. Beside that just some bodies from unfortunate souls who didn make it. Mostly at the edge of the village. ” She casually said while playing with a large leaf she found on the ground.

Collin shaked his head. ”I have no clue or thats good thing or a bad thing ” ”It is good for us, but not so good for the confirmation of what the state of the world is right now ” she replied to Collin.

After a while they arrived near the stairs and until their relieve Ronald was inspecting the portal and waved them welcome.

”Ahh our sleeping beauty woke up. ” Ronald laughed while pointing at the portal. ”The portal seems to be deactivated at the current moment. Maybe it gets activated in the future.. ”

The trio froze for a moment when they thought they heard something. ”Uhh maybe it is time to g- ” before Ronald could finish his sentence a loud rumbling that sounds like a bunch of empty cans flying in a breeze. On top of the bunch of large trees in front, a head of a snake was seen hissing while staring directly at the trio.

”RUN! ” Ronald yelled, and as he yelled the trio sprinted as quickly as they could. Going along the path that lead them to the portal on their way, they saw a bunch of birds flying away. Sophie calmly replied ”well looks like the birds are also scared of giant robots ” she said while shrugging.

After running for a good 5 minutes it was once again quiet while the group leaned against the trees while taking in some heavy breaths. And Collin shaked his head ”I think we will wait a bit longer before trying to enter that portal.. ” afterwards Collin lead the way to the big house he found earlier.
