ITDO - Chapter 5 - Elf Queen
The Pentagon Building located in Washington, District of Columbia, is the headquarters of the United States of America's highest military command authority, the Department of Defense.
The Pentagon remained in a state of perpetual activity. This edifice collected all the world’s information while hiding the world’s ultimate security secret.
“Secretary Johnson, this is the report from the Fermi National Laboratory. Please read it!”
After receiving approval, a civil servant opened the doors and walked in. He respectfully executed a salute and placed the documents on the table before excusing himself.
The current United States Secretary of Defense, Johnson was a retired 4-star general of the Marine Corps. He had accepted the president’s invitation and now assumed the post of Secretary of Defense.
When the civil servant left, the Secretary of Defense picked up the documents and saw the label denoting classified information on the document before quickly opening it.
“Fermi National Laboratory? Aren’t they researching physics? Why would they send the Defense Department this kind of document?”
Filled with suspicion, the Secretary of Defense looked at the information. After scanning the contents, he threw the documents away, “...... Come on, are you guys kidding me? There’s actually a ‘high-energy’ reaction in the Amazon? And you really expect me to believe that it might be a wormhole?? Why not just say that there are aliens on the moon plotting an invasion!”
The Secretary of Defense shook his head. He did not believe in the so-called wormhole one bit. Especially when the document stated that it had only appeared for an instant. This made it even more unbelievable.
From his point of view, this might be a move the research lab played because it lacked funding. Thus they used this pretense to slyly ask for more. That said, even if they needed funds, they should have thought of a more reasonable explanation. Saying that they found a worm-hole reaction on Earth would be the same as saying that the world would end tomorrow.
The Secretary of Defense was prepared to ignore this matter and take his leave when he suddenly thought about something and turned on the computer. He logged in with his privileges and searched for a report that he had just received.
“This is the report sent by Princeton University’s physics research laboratory. They actually noticed something suspected to be a worm-hole reaction?”
Gradually, the Secretary of Defense’s expression turned serious.
If it was just one laboratory that said it, he would feel that it was just to swindle some funds. But if two laboratories said it - especially when both were the top-notch laboratories in the United States of America - then as the Secretary of Defense, he could not brush them aside.
“Because the reaction only happened for an instant, the survey scope was not detailed. They could only pinpoint that it was somewhere in the Amazon jungle.”
The Secretary of Defense stood up and walked to the map hung on the wall behind him. He used the pencil in his hands to draw a big circle on the Amazon jungle.
After a long time, he finally returned to his own office and pushed on a button on the phone on the desk.
“We should have a troop in South America’s Amazon jungle, right? Send them close to west longitude XXX, south latitude XXX. I will send the details of the mission a little bit later.”
After relaying his orders, the Secretary of Defense pressed the topmost button on the phone, “...... Schedule me some time, I want to meet with His Excellency the President.”
After putting down the phone, the Secretary of Defense let out a long sigh as his heart was filled with worry.
“God bless the United States of America! I hope there will be some good news……”
The Secretary of Defense stood up and wore his coat as he prepared to set out for the White House. Sensitive information like this needed to be communicated to the President in person.
“I hope His Excellency the President won’t tweet out this information in excitement……”
Thinking about the current President’s character, the Secretary of Defense felt his brain hurt. Why did he even accept the President’s invitation to become the Secretary of Defense? Every day he had to wipe the president’s ass due to his big mouth. It was truly tiring.
World of San Soliel
The Forest of the Moon was located south of the main continent. This place was an endless forest where the race spoken in Earth’s legends - the elves - could be found.
The Forest of the Moon was the largest gathering place for the elven race. It was also the only place recognized as an elven kingdom. Other than elves, there were also large amounts of magic beasts and normal animals that lived there. There were treants, dryads, and other creatures that lived close to nature.
The elves had always been known for their elegant and delicate faces that surpassed the ordinary person. In the eyes of humans and many other races, elves were beautiful creatures that could charm anyone.
Unlike humans, elves had long lifespans, but their population was low. In the black market, elven slaves were essentially priceless. Every single human nobleman dreamt of possessing one.
Many human nobles took care to hide their dark perversions. Elves, whether male or female, had beautiful appearances, and thus they had become objects of desire for some nobles. With their long lifespans, some of them were even turned into family heirlooms. After one generation finished using them, the next generation would use them, and so on. There was no problem in repeatedly passing them on to posterity.
However, even if wealthy personages and nobles sought after them, elven slaves were too rare. This was because they lived in the elven kingdom inside the Forest of the Moon.
The Silver Moon Kingdom was the only recognized country for the elves, and it was located in the middle of the Forest of the Moon. The elves were not like humans who would construct walls to barricade themselves. For elves, the forest was the best method of protection. It was also the place where they could most easily display their abilities in battle. Only the garrisoned soldiers and the few elven urbanites lived in the elven capital. The majority of the elves lived in a tribal manner, scattered throughout the forest.
Although the elven kingdom was not as strong as the human empires, they were not weak either. This was because they were more united internally. If an elf was kidnapped and enslaved, all elves would retaliate collectively. Thus, nobles who held great power would never let the news that they had elven slaves spread.
In the deepest part of the Forest of the Moon, there was a tree that towered to the skies. This was the elves’ sacred tree, the Ancient Tree of Life. According to legend, it was personally planted by the god that the elves worshipped. The god went by names of the God of Nature, the Silver Moon Goddess, and many other titles.
The legend said that the longevity of the elves was tied to this tree. If it died, then the elves would lose their long lifespans.
Under a branch of this ancient tree was a gorgeous and magnificent palace located at the center of a lake. The palace seemed to be a work of art, displaying the elven race’s heritage and elegance. It was a testament to the naturalistic beauty of elven arts as opposed to the vulgarities of the humans’.
At the center of the palace, a lady stood with her head held high.
If the elves were the most beautiful race on the continent, then this elf was the most beautiful woman among them. She was the founder of the Silver Moon Kingdom. She stood above all elves and possessed the titles of ‘Moon of Moons’, ‘Light of the Light’, ‘the Forest Fairy’, and many other titles. She was the queen of the elves.
