Might contain some disturbing scenes
A month had passed since Tejas and Vidur got their weapons,
Just around this time, many rumors began spreading around the villages on the eastern side of the kingdom of Gorakh.
People claimed to have seen a giant human-like rakshasa (T/N: Demon). Apparently, It was a lower-class rakshasa.
Generally, Rakshasas' are divided into 4 types.
They have brown or black colored gigantic human-like bodies with razor-sharp teeth. Two of their largest teeth stick out like fangs. They have 2 large horns and are the most intelligent Rakshasa. They have monstrous durability and stamina, And also use a Gada (T/N: Mace) as their main weapon.
Their body is similar to High-Class Rakshasa with their only distinct features being their red skin color, pointy ears, hideous face, and lack of horns. They eat anything from a fruit to a human being. They also use a Gada (Mace) as their main weapon.
They are Rakshasa with a similar body structure to all sorts of animals. They share various genetic traits with their animal counterpart.
These Rakshasas are rare as they are the product of the breeding of different species.
"Do you know about the Rakshasa in the forest?"
A few villagers began to talk about the lower-class Rakshasa from the rumors.
"Yes Yes, I heard it is obsessed with human flesh."
A bunch of kids also began to listen in on this conversation.
"Yes, If you enter its territory. Consider yourself dead."
"Plus, That Rakshasa is apparently a fanatic of eating children."
"I know right, I heard that It is a Rakshasa that lived around other villages and ate the children of those villages."
"I heard they call it 'Gurumapa'. It has terrorized many villages." (T/N: Notes at the end)
As the villagers continued to gossip about the Rakshasa named Gurumapa, all the kids that heard this story were terrified. But, Among them, 5 kids didn't seem to believe it a bit.
The group of 5 kids, consisting of a girl and 4 boys decided to be the "heroes" and prove that this was just a story the adults made up to scare them.
The 5 kids decided to head towards the forest to play hide and seek.
And, So they did. One of the kids started counting as the other 4 hurriedly went to hide inside the forest. Coincidentally, Gurumapa was feeling hungry then.
It smelled the entire territory and was surprised to find the presence of some delicious treats waiting for it.
The boy also finished with his counting and began to search for his friends. Meanwhile, on the other side, one of the kids hiding behind a rock giggled to himself as he looked at the seeker kid who couldn't find anyone.
Just as his small giggling stopped, A giant shadow covered him. The kid turned around just to be frozen still in fear. The hideous face of Gurumapa, Its large red body was something enough to seriously traumatize any child.
And this kid was no exception, He tried to cry but met an unfortunate end. (p.s He was eaten)
This time Gurumapa giggled creepily before it began to eat one after another kid. Finally, The only two kids left were the girl, who was atop a tree, and the seeker boy.
Gurumapa slowly made its way towards the tree. At the same time, oblivious to the Rakshasa approaching, the girl atop the tree was annoyed.
Why? Because the seeker boy hadn't found anyone since the game began. She had been sitting on the top of a tree for god's sake.
The girl became impatient and called the seeker boy. The pair agreed to go home as the girl began climbing down the tree and the seeker boy started to call his friends to come out of hiding.
Unfortunately, His friends had been hidden in a place where it wasn't possible for them to respond.
As she was climbing down, Gurumapa came running caught her in its big hand. The girl immediately shouted in pain but became quiet due to sheer terror when she saw Gurumapa's hideous face.
Tears stained her soft cheeks as Gurumapa snickered. The seeker boy was also horrified. He tried to move but the more he saw the large body of Gurumapa, The more despair he fell in.
Gurumapa started to play with the terrified girl taking his sweet time.
The girl was even more terrified and start asking help from the seeker boy."
please help me friend I don't want to die please save me.!!
Too bad for her, The seeker boy had already started running away. The girl broke down completely as her last strand of hope was broken.
All she could do was cry in pain while regretting her decisions as Gurumapa crushed her limbs. Not caring about the amount of blood she was coughing, Gurumapa threw her in the air and swallowed her with a single gulp.
It smiled before running in the direction of the seeker boy, who was running as fast as he could. Tears fell from his eyes like a river and snot was all over his nose, Yet the boy ran without caring.
All he wanted to do was to run as fast as he could, as far away as he could reach, He kept running.
Of course, Running that fast in the middle of the jungle wasn't easy. He tripped on some mud and fell headfirst onto some animal feces.
The seeker boy gave up on running and crawled under some bushes not bothering to wipe the feces on his face. There was a small hole there where he immediately inserted his small body. The boy closed his mouth and began to calm his rough breathing.
Soon, Gurumapa arrived with an annoyed face. It felt like running so much for a single kid was too much work. Still, it had no intentions of letting the boy go.
It soon reached the place where the boy was hiding. It looked around but couldn't see anybody. So, It closed its eyes and began to smell everything in the area.
Gurumapa didn't find the scent of the boy but It did smell a large number of feces around. It quickly left the area to search somewhere else.
In the small hole, the seeker boy was silently crying. Fortunately, the smell of shit on his face was what saved his life just now.
After a few minutes, he got out and began running towards the village. Lucky for him, Gurumapa had given up on him and returned to its cave.
The boy successfully reached his village but the incident left a huge shadow in his heart. Traumatizing him for eternity.
After hearing about this incident, The villagers became frustrated. This wasn't even the first time Gurumapa ate their children. They tried to kill it but only suffered utter defeat.
after hearing about the children's death the mothers and the father's of the children's who got eaten by Gurumapa , start crying because they can't even find there children's body to finish ritual for there soul to rest in peace.
some mothers and fathers become crazy as they become hopeless family.
The villagers were falling into despair when one of the elders suggested asking for help from the hunters of Goraha village so other children's and women's don't become victim.
The village chief talked with others and decided to put his last hope on the warriors of Goraha. The same day, 3 people including the village chief head out for Goraha village.
the council members of 2 village gather in the Goraha main chamber room.
Elders, chief, hunter leader, head Brahmin, head of Vaidya's every one talking about Gurumapa.
They explained the situation and asked Ram for help, which Ram agreed to after consulting with his trusted people.
The next day, Ram called for a meeting between the hunters in the village. He knew that this hunt would be considerably harder than when he and Raj hunted the scarred tiger.
As they were discussing, suddenly one of the guards entered the meeting room and shouted.
"Ch-chief, please come outside. Soldiers from the capital have come!"
"Capital? You mean from Gorakh?"
