Chapter 106 – There were skyscrapers!?
What appeared before our eyes, was a hollowed out chamber that was so huge it was hard to believe that we were underground.
When I looked up, there was an endless darkness, as if I was gazing at the night sky.
Though, there must have been a ceiling, as we were underground. But it was a convincing illusion.
But what surprised me even further, was the number of gigantic buildings.
The royal capital that I was raised in was considered to be the biggest city on the continent.
There were many bell towers that seemed to be competing over which was the tallest. The main street was lined with incredible mansions. Those who visited the capital were constantly moving their eyes from one thing to another.
However, even the royal capital was nothing compared to this place.
We were standing on a hill, and right below us, a huge city spread out into the distance.
There were tall spires that were as high as the World Tree, and structures that appeared to be temples. These had great mountain-like domes in them. And there were many such buildings.
Fule usually had a cool reaction to everything, but even she was stunned.
Aries watched us and then said,
“Is this really so shocking…?”
“Perhaps it’s not shocking to you, but we’ve never seen anything like this before.”
Fule said, and I nodded.
“Yes. I think just about anyone from the surface would be shocked by this.”
Well, at least anyone who knew what a city was would find it hard to believe their own eyes.
But as we were enraptured by this sight we had never seen before, what sounded like the howling of beasts suddenly entered our ears.
The howling gradually turned more vicious, and some were like screams.
