Wiro Sableng Book 5 Chapter 11-1
The world keeps on spinning. Day turns to night, and in time it shall once again turn to day, and night and so on and on. Days change to weeks, weeks transformed to months. Alas, the twelfth day of the twelfth month slowly crept ever closer day by day.
The martial arts world was getting more and more tense by the emergence of Green Scorpion Goddess and her disciples that were adamant in their intent to establish the Skull Valley Sect. Wherever they appeared, murder would ensue! No less than six Martial Arts School had been destroyed by them, leaving nothing but their names and mere memories. Dozens of martial arts figures had met their demise in the hands of the ladies.
Frankly speaking, there would have been many more Martial Arts Schools and Figures that would have met their untimely end if only the crimes and murders done by Green Scorpion Goddess and her disciples were not getting some challenges and hindrances from numerous mighty martial arts figures. One of the most annoying and became a symbol of horror for Green Scorpion Goddess and her disciples was none other than the Deadly Fire Dragon Hatchet 212 Warrior, Wiro Sableng!
For many times, the 212 Warrior managed to foil the plans of Green Scorpion Goddess that was about to destroy several Martial Arts Schools. He also repeatedly saved several martial art figures, as without his timely aid, those martial artists would definitely have fallen from grace!
Hence why between the Green Scorpion Goddess and her disciples with the 212 Warrior there was an irrevocable enmity and vengeance. However, deep beyond the feelings of enmity, there was a dash of feeling hidden deeply in the heart of the Green Scorpion Goddess. And the Goddess didn’t even know that the feeling that she had was also present inside the heart of her own disciple, the White Scorpion!
Before her first encounter with the martial arts world, Green Scorpion Goddess had once fallen in love with a young man. That same young man then met his death in the hands of a robber group. When she first saw Wiro Sableng, Green Scorpion Goddess was startled as the 212 Warrior looked very similar to the young man that she once loved. The only physical difference was that Wiro Sableng had long black hair instead!
Having been reminded of her old flame in the form of Wiro, the Goddess had the feeling that her old lover once again came back to life. And the flame of love that was gone once again sparked in her! But since Wiro Sableng had always been a big hindrance in her plan to establish the Skull Valley Sect, the seed of love that had started to sprout was destroyed by the agony of enmity.
On one hand, Wiro could be the way out and the path to a future filled with happiness, but on the other hand, Wiro was his biggest nemesis, both to herself and for the sake of her grand plan!
In the meantime, the twelfth day of the twelfth month was creeping closer than ever. Green Scorpion Goddess and her disciples no longer had the time to wreak havoc upon the martial arts schools and the martial figures who dared challenged her, as she also had to prepare for everything in the Skull Valley for the official establishment of her Skull Valley Sect. Thus, Green Scorpion Goddess switched her strategy .
She sent an invitation to the whole martial arts world, all eight cardinal directions, to attend the ceremonial day of the establishment of the Skull Valley Sect. When, and if, the martial arts figures and the Heads of various martial arts schools both from the White Path and the Dark Path were there in attendance, her scheme would definitely run well. This is especially since she had already garnered a vast number of Sect members from numerous schools and figures that she had conquered!
Although deep inside her heart Green Scorpion Goddess had imagined that her Skull Valley Sect would be established grandly, but deep inside she was wary of grand figures such as the 212 Warrior Wiro Sableng! Even when he was not invited, it was not impossible for 212 Warrior to come to the Skull Valley, especially since at the battle in Fragrant Lake School last time, Green Scorpion Goddess had challenged him to come to Skull Valley, exactly on the twelfth day of the twelfth month!
While making all the preparations in the Skull Valley, Green Scorpion Goddess kept on finding ways and methods on how to best deal with the 212 Warrior best. That youngster was incredibly dangerous and indeed worthy of becoming her nemesis! However, despite the danger, her heart wished for death to avoid Wiro Sableng. This is one hell of a big ordeal for the Green Scorpion Goddess!
Indeed, no matter how evil and vile a person’s heart was, when the light of love and passion had crept inside one’s heart, he or she would definitely face doubt. Should she put love as priority, or her dream as one?
A week before the twelfth day of the twelfth month, Green Scorpion Goddess ordered her disciple, the White Scorpion and another one of the Sect members to find and capture the 212 Warrior alive. Green Scorpion Goddess firmly believed that when it was this close to the establishment of the Skull Valley Sect, the young Warrior would definitely have reached the vicinity of Mount Merapi’s base. The sect member that was assigned together with White Scorpion was a Dark path martial artist with the moniker of “Demon Net”. The strongest skill of Demon Net that made him given such title was due to his weapon, a net made from a rope which was indestructible that no weapon could slash and hack it up to this very moment!
Four days later, White Scorpion finally returned all by herself! Green Scorpion Goddess welcomed the return of her disciple with lingering questions in her heart. There was a change in White Scorpion’s countenance.
“Where’s Demon Net?” inquired Green Scorpion Goddess. White Scorpion bowed before her master but hesitated her reply with her head down.
“Did you find that young brat?” White Scorpion answered with a nod.
“And did Demon Net manage to capture him?” White Scorpion shook her head slowly.
Green Scorpion Goddess banged the table in front of her.
“White! Why are you acting so strangely! Quickly tell me everything!” she barked. “Where is Demon Net?” Green Scorpion Goddess repeated her question once again.
