His roar was loud and terrifying. Ram, who was just drawing his bow from the top of the tree suddenly lost his footing and fell down.
Gurumapa saw Ram falling and immediately rushed towards Ram. It kicked Ram before Ram could even hit the ground. Of course, Ram also put his hands to guard against the kick,
But was sadly sent flying to a faraway tree.
Ram also started to cough blood as he felt that the sheer pain would kill him. Of course, Despite the serious injury, Ram wouldn't go down that easily.
He hurriedly stood up with blood still flowing out of his mouth. He weakly threw a rock at Gurumapa before shouting at the top of his probably ruptured lungs,
"You son of a bit*h! Come at me if you can you Bastard!!"
Ram was aiming to buy more time for the other hunters. And Gurumapa luckily took the bait. This was a bit surprising since Gurumapa had acted pretty smartly before, For it to be provoked so easily, Ram could attribute it to the fact that Gurumapa was probably so frustrated and angry that all of its rationality had disappeared.
Well, Not like it mattered much since this was what Ram wanted. He drew his bow again and shot an arrow at Gurumapa before starting to run.
The arrow was caught by Gurumapa who crushed it before shouting.
"What happened you bastard human? Didn't you call me to fight? Why are you running?"
Ram didn't respond and kept running to a certain position. After reaching there, He immediately turned around and faced the approaching Gurumapa.
He drew his bow and weakly smiled before saying,
"Yes! Now come and I will kill you."
Ram's actions were weird. It was obvious that he was planning to trap it, but Gurumapa didn't care. It rushed madly at Ram while maniacally laughing.
Just as Gurumapa was close enough, Ram shot an arrow towards Gurumapa. But surprisingly, The arrow wasn't aimed at Gurumapa. It was aimed at something behind Gurumapa.
A rope. The same rope connecting the logs.
Before Gurumapa could process it, A huge log suddenly came and smashed it right at its face. Gurumapa lost its balance and fell to the ground.
Ram took that opportunity and aimed the heaviest and the sharpest arrow he had at Gurumapa's injury. But before Ram could shoot suddenly his whole body began to ache.
Ram had yet to give up, But His body seemed to have finally given up. Not only was he exhausted but so injured that it was a miracle he managed to lift a bow.
Ram's body fell to the ground weakly as Gurumapa's body rose from the ground. Gurumapa was angry but smiled when It saw that Ram had already hit his limits.
"Kekekek, This is why you can't kill me you human."
Gurumapa smiled menacingly as it closed the distance between It and its prey.
Suddenly, It heard the voice of a young boy in the distance.
"Get away from my Father, You ugly bastard!"
Along with it, An arrow hit its shoulder. Although it did no damage, It successfully managed to annoy Gurumapa who was already annoyed enough at the fact that It was getting injured by weak humans again and again.
Gurumapa turned towards the source of the voice to see Vidur holding his bow towards it.
Tejas also came out behind Vidur and shot an arrow at Gurumapa though it only managed to slightly graze Gurumapa's shoulders.
Ram identified his son's voice and looked at Tejas and Vidur before speaking weakly.
"You..You boys get away from here fast..."
But before Ram could finish his sentence properly, Gurumapa stomped on him and broke his right leg.
Ram screamed in agony which only prompted Gurumapa to kick him. Now, Ram was nearest to death he had ever been in his life.
"I said get away from him!"
Vidur shouted while shooting another arrow which Gurumapa caught while salivating. Although Tejas and Vidur were 15, That was well under the age that Gurumapa liked.
It quickly ran towards Tejas and Vidur who ran in opposite directions after throwing their bows away. Each of them had their Khukuri entrusted to them by their fathers.
Gurumapa first chased Vidur, who was running as fast as he could. Of course, There was no way that Gurumapa could be outran by Vidur.
Gurumapa threw its club away and swung its hand to catch Vidur but suddenly tripped before falling headfirst into the ground.
Of course, His claws managed to scar Vidur's back. Vidur wanted to scream in pain but endured it somehow.
Meanwhile. Raj woke up slowly and saw that he was being patched up by other hunters using some Ayurveda. He grunted in pain before asking where Ram and the other hunters were?
The hunters replied by saying that Ram and the others were fighting with Gurumapa. But the close combatants got injured and Ram's team members started helping the close combat members to retreat successfully.
After that, They sent some hunters to scout the situation But since the Scouters have yet to return, They don't know what happened to the chief and the rakshasa.
After hearing the whole situation, Raj slowly stood up before picking his Khukuris. He started searching for Ram but spotted Vidur running away from Gurumapa with a scar on his back.
Raj's eyes flared up with anger and he clenched on his 2 Khukuris before roaring. He ran towards Gurumapa and jumped. With all of his strength on this attack, Raj used cross attack skill and managed to cut deep on Gurumapa's back forming a cross scar.
Somehow, its back was cut deep which managed to hurt it again.
Gurumapa roared in pain used its hands to reach its back and caught Raj. It threw him in the trees. But, This time Raj maneuvered himself in such a way that He didn't get hurt.
So, Raj came back and attacked again. He went for the leg this time. And, he successfully managed to hurt Gurumapa's leg and got it down on its knees.
Raj then went for the head but Gurumapa suddenly pulled out a trap card, As if it had intentionally let it happen,
Raj easily jumped to attack Gurumapa's head but Gurumapa used its claws to half-blind Raj. And It also left his half body with a deep scar.
But despite the injury, Ram managed to attack Gurumapa's forehead. the attack was not deep enough Raj try to pull the Khukuri but it got stuck on his forehead. Of course, Gurumapa caught Raj and threw him to the ground.
raj whole body was injured, blood's coming out from his eye and mouth, he can't move his body because of Gurumapa attack.
Gurumapa pull out khukuri blade that stuck on his forehead after that part slowly getting heal.
From a far distance, Tejas saw his father getting thrown around. As rage immediately filled his heart, He slapped himself.
Tejas wiped the tears in his eyes and helped Vidur get up. After he bandaged Vidur's scar, He noticed that Gurumapa had been gravely injured by his father.
Tejas decided not to waste this opportunity as He and Vidur rushed towards Gurumapa with their Khukuris.
Of course, They had a few plans. Tejas and Vidur opened their bags and threw a big net at Gurumapa.
Right after that, Tejas and Vidur began tying the ropes of the net on the ground and trees to restrain Gurumapa before attacking.
They jumped on its head and used their Khukuri to attack its head but they lacked the power to cut through its skin like their fathers could.
Gurumapa easily broke out of the net and Tejas and Vidur fell to the ground. Gurumapa extended its hand to catch Vidur again.
But, Tejas pushed Vidur from his place and instead got a scar on his front torso. It was painful but Tejas endured it.
Gurumapa became increasingly frustrated and caught Tejas. Just as it was about to eat Tejas, An arrow came and pierced Gurumapa's back.
Soon, another arrow followed and then one more arrow pierced Gurumapa's back. But this time, Not only did the arrows pierce through the skin of Gurumapa, they completely went through its body.
Gurumapa felt pain rush through its body as blood gushed out. It let go of Tejas and turned around to see Ram, who had once again fallen unconscious after shooting three arrows at Gurumapa.
But Gurumapa wasn't greatly affected by those three holes because It was in a rage mode. At this point, For Gurumapa pain meant nothing.
Tejas thanked Ram inside his heart before retreating a few steps and taking a fighting stance.
Seeing the determined face of Tejas, Gurumapa wanted to fill it with despair. Gurumapa then gave an obvious opening to the boys.
Seeing that opportunity, both boys used their khukuri and attacked its head as hard and as fast as they could.
But, Instead of cutting through its skin, The khukuris just kept getting bounced off of Gurumapa face. Finally, both of the boys aimed their khukuris at Its mouth.
Gurumapa suddenly caught the Khukuris with its teeth and,
The Khukuris broke in half.
Tejas and Vidur became completely helpless. Gurumapa saw fear welling up the face of two boys and snickered menacingly.
Both Tejas and Vidur fell on their knees after losing all hope. Gurumapa loved the despair in their eyes and caught both of the boys in its hands.
Suddenly, the Guardian Beast of the forest; the Golden deer arrived before Gurumapa. The golden deer looked at the situation and could immediately figure out what was happening.
That's when soldiers and the warrior also arrived at the scene.
