October 11, 2062, 9:00 AM The coming-of-age ceremony for the chimeraz project begins in Nemea.

I get in my car in the morning and drive to work, sit down at my desk in the bioengineering team, and focus all my senses outside as the office clock strikes 9:00 AM.

Common sense dictates that there will be no raids in a place and time where humans gather. If they do, it will be a public display of the fact that they are not human. There is also the crime.

Darwin Foundation workers will find and dispose of anyone who breaks the rules, ignoring them.

โ€œYesterday, the production team noticed the parts designed by Mr. Kreion. If you can make a perfect design drawing like yesterday, it will be easier for our team and the production team.โ€

I heard that the bioengineering team and the production team were not on good terms.

The bioengineering team made something and sent it to the production team, but the production team said it was no good, and the bioengineering team said that if it wasnโ€™t made that way, it wouldnโ€™t sell, creating a conflict of interest.

I donโ€™t care if I get a good or bad review here, but for now, the subjects of the coming-of-age ceremony will all be doing their best to get good results in the work they are assigned to do in order to blend into human society. They move according to their own schedules and tasks in the same city.

Therefore, the place where the real raid will start is expected to be outside the company, and the time of the raid is expected to be at least after 6:00 PM.

But thatโ€™s only for raids that harm each other.

There is plenty of room to explore the opponent even in this place.

The proof is now that I have come out to the office hallway for a moment to get some water.

โ€œ. . . .โ€

โ€œ. . . .โ€

A familiar face is looking up at me in front of the water dispenser.

I stand there staring at him without saying anything, and a co-worker who is walking behind him talks to him.

โ€œOh, are you the one who met with the vice president earlier? Do you have anyone youโ€™re looking for in the bioengineering team?โ€

โ€œI found him.โ€

Meeting with the vice president.

That was the reason why that guy came to this company.

โ€œKreion.โ€

โ€œ. . .?โ€

That guy pointed at me.

It looks like he has something up his sleeve. However, I have no idea what it is at the moment.

Anyway, this place is full of humans. There are eyes watching around, so they wonโ€™t attack me first.

โ€œIf you are Mr. Kreion. . . .โ€

โ€œWeโ€™re friends. I didnโ€™t know he was here.โ€

Experimental body No. 374 of the 4th generation.

Bellum Damian.

He is a male experimental body with blond hair that is one head taller than mine. He had items such as Legion Mastery and Strategy/Tactics Specialization.

And before I could say anything, he spoke first.

โ€œKreion. Come out here for a second.โ€

โ€œWhere?โ€

โ€œRooftop. Itโ€™s kind of awkward to go outside the company, right?โ€

I followed Damian up to the spacious rooftop. Even at this moment, there are company employees who come out to smoke a cigarette or take a break with coffee on the 95th-floor rooftop.

โ€œIt seems that you have been recognized in society to some extent that you are able to meet with Vice President Coelacanth at the age of 18.โ€

I take a peek at him,

โ€œIโ€™ve heard a lot about you before you came out into society. They said you were so good that you overwhelmed the others.โ€

He lowered his voice so that only I could hear him and hid his information.

โ€œBefore I came out into society?โ€

โ€œYeah.โ€

The only people who can tell such stories are the people involved in the foundation.

โ€œDid your secretary provide that information?โ€

โ€œA subordinateโ€™s intelligence ability is also part of his ability.โ€

This is where the disadvantage of the 5th generation experimental body is revealed. I was the last to leave the foundation, so I am being pushed by the intelligence capabilities of the competitors who have been established before me.

โ€œSo why did you come here so openly? You wonโ€™t be able to do anything here right now.โ€

โ€œWe each have something we want. What do you think?โ€

โ€œIโ€™ll listen.โ€

Damian, who specializes in strategy and tactics, must have something that I canโ€™t ignore.

โ€œLend me your ability. Then Iโ€™ll give you information about the other guys.โ€

Information about competitors.

He nailed down what I wanted.

But I need to explore a little more. After all, in the end, they are in a relationship to kill each other. If itโ€™s Damian, even this could be a trap.

โ€œHow do I trust your information?โ€

Then Damianโ€™s voice flowed into my head. He used the wave.

๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿ”ธ

I got off work for now. The sun, which had been slowly setting since yesterday, disappeared below the horizon and it became midnight at 6:30 PM.

Human civilization shines even when the light of the stars disappears. The black sky, where the stars are supposed to be, is filled with all kinds of orbital structures and ships, and below them are spaceships, drones, and skyscrapers.

When I look up at the city from my mansion, which is located on a slightly elevated mountainous terrain, it seems that the lights of countless buildings are heating up the sky.

โ€œIโ€™ll be going now. Young Master.โ€

โ€œWhen will the things I told you come?โ€

โ€œIf youโ€™re talking about that list of chemicals, it will be delivered to your home by a humanoid courier by tomorrow. I told them to leave it at the front door.โ€

โ€œGot it.โ€

There are really various substances in this world. I ordered a list of necessary items as if I was exploring knowledge in the virtual marketplace called the Internet.

This is because there is a huge difference between learning the structure of a substance theoretically and actually interpreting the design.

โ€œYou worked hard today too. Haber.โ€

โ€œYes. Young Master. Be careful even at night, and congratulations again on your companyโ€™s performance this time.โ€

Haber looks tired.

โ€œItโ€™s a dangerous time. Go inside quickly.โ€

I sent Haber off to work and used the computer in the empty room on the first floor to spread the hologram map on the bed.

๐˜ก๐˜ช๐˜ช๐˜ช๐˜ช๐˜ช๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ. . . .

ใ€ŒReference coordinates: Nemea Stellar Stateใ€

ใ€ŒPlanet: Nemeaใ€

ใ€ŒCity: Argosใ€

ใ€ŒRegion: Argosใ€

The Coelacanth Company building is located in the outskirts of the city, and there is an area where the mansions of the wealthy are concentrated in the mountainous terrain further south from the company building. My mansion is located in that wealthy area.

And according to the information I received from Damian this morning, Autophagy Tosis and Zeul Pin Bythos are living in the same wealthy mansion area as me.

Maybe everyone, including me, is in this mansion area.

The Darwin Foundation deliberately chose this location. A location away from the city center to prevent a major commotion, a low population density, and a location where even the original mansion owners are wealthy people with frequent social activities, so they have a lot of time to leave their homes.

Also, if you think about a similar possibility, the Darwin Foundation may be controlling all the mansions in this mansion area.

It is possible that even reports to the police in this area are controlled. Drone cams, security cameras, vehicle black boxes, and even satellites that take this area from the Nemea orbit.

Could they let non-humans fight without such safety devices?

. . . Looks like the right safety device. Including me, three people are living in this mansion area. And Haber guided me to this mansion area. If the foundation had decided on this location selection, other secretaries could do the same.

The foundation may have built a stage that we cannot see.

They have prepared a battlefield for us to fight here.

That seems to be the case. The other guys must be living somewhere among the neighboring mansions.

๐˜›๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฌ.

Suddenly, there was the sound of a power outage.

๐˜›๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฌ, ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฌ, ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฌ, ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฌ!

The hologram spread out on the bed turns off and the computer turns off. The lights on the ceiling went out and the short lights that illuminated the garden outside the window also went out. But the city in the distance is still shining brightly without any change.

Only this mansion has a power outage.

Itโ€™s an ambush.

๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿ”ธ

The mansion was plunged into darkness.

Kreion stares at the tightly closed door.

There is absolutely no suspicious movement or sound since the power outage.

In the meantime, he has mutated his photoreceptor cells and pupils, so his pupils have turned completely black, as if they had been bitten by a ghost, without any white. And although it is not visible from the outside, his ears have also greatly enhanced his hearing, concentrating his nerves on external stimuli.

๐˜Š๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฌ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ. . . .

Kreionโ€™s whole body is covered in black armor. The cellโ€™s clothes he was wearing become one with his skin. Living tissue wriggles to form an exoskeleton, covering his head and face, protecting his entire body without fail.

And from under the elbow of his right arm, a chrome-colored blade protrudes out like Kabanaโ€™s claws.

โ€œWho is it?โ€

He sends voice and waves into the mansion, but all that comes back is a dead silence.

He takes a step toward the closed door silently.

โ€˜๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฌ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ฎ๐˜บ ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ฉ๐˜ต. ๐˜๐˜ง ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ถ๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ด ๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ท๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜บ ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ, ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ท๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฌ.โ€™

He very slowly grabs the door handle with his left hand. At the same time, he assumes a posture that allows him to swing the sword in his right arm at any time.

โ€˜๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜บ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ง๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ถ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ด. ๐˜ˆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜จ๐˜ถ๐˜บ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฃ๐˜บ ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜จ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฉ๐˜ถ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ช๐˜ด. . .โ€™

๐˜’๐˜ธ๐˜ข-๐˜ซ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜จ-๐˜ค๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜จ!!!

Suddenly, the window shattered and the shadow of a short man entered the room.

Even though his face is not visible right away, Kreion reveals his identity.

โ€œ. . . Zeul.โ€

โ€œWhen you call me, call me Bythos.โ€

Experimental subject 2nd generation 166th.

Molecular synthesis, networking specialization.

Itโ€™s Zeul Pin Bythos.

โ€œI didnโ€™t know youโ€™d come so soon. How did you find out that I was in this mansion?โ€

โ€œYou ordered a lot of stuff.โ€

โ€œIs it your secretaryโ€™s ability?โ€

At that, Bythos snickered.

โ€œA secretary? Why are you talking about that now?โ€

โ€œBecause the ability of a subordinate is the ability of a master.โ€

โ€œAre you a ruler who relies on the ability of a lowly human?โ€

โ€œAre humans inferior?โ€

โ€œIโ€™d like to kill my useless secretary right now. I donโ€™t rely on such things. I solve everything with my own abilities. Unlike you and the others.โ€

โ€˜๐˜š๐˜ฐ ๐˜‰๐˜บ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ดโ€™ ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜บ ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฌ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ. . . .โ€™

Bythos reaches behind him.

๐˜ก๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ฌ!

The yellow viscous substance from his palm stuck to the broken window and hardened like a wall. What is the intention? Is it some kind of advance work?

โ€œThe name of the person who ordered it is Haber Heydrich. . . . Itโ€™s careless for an individual who survived the preliminary selection. To leak information about your sleeping quarters so easily.โ€

โ€œDid you already know my secretaryโ€™s name?โ€

Kreion attacks before Bythos knows what heโ€™s trying to do.

๐˜›๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ต!

The distance between Bythos and the door of the room was only 12 meters. It took Kreion only 0.5 seconds to run 12 meters.

The moment Kreionโ€™s blade was about to hit Bythosโ€™ neck,

๐˜’๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ข. . .!

Bythos opened his jaw more than 120 degrees and exhaled a smoky gas. Kreion twisted his body momentarily to avoid the gas, but it had already hit his face.

โ€œCreurrrrr. . . .โ€

๐˜’๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ข!!!

Bythos continues to emit a suspicious gas. At this, Kreion jumps back, widening the distance between them.

He seem to have drunk some of the gas.

โ€ . . .!โ€

Kreionโ€™s body staggers.

โ”๐“๐ก๐ž ๐ฏ๐ข๐ซ๐ฎ๐ฌ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐ญ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ง ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐›๐จ๐๐ฒ ๐ข๐ง๐ญ๐จ ๐š ๐ฆ๐š๐ฅ๐ข๐ ๐ง๐š๐ง๐ญ ๐ญ๐ฎ๐ฆ๐จ๐ซ.

๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ!

Kreionโ€™s knees collapsed.

He can feel dangerous changes happening inside his body. The virus that entered through the respiratory tract is causing acute mutations in the alveoli. It is an infection that changes the normal cells in the body, like cancer cells. His breathing becomes more and more labored.

The infected cells do not stop infecting the lungs, but flow through the blood vessels and spread throughout the body in an instant.

โ€œKeuk. . .!โ€

Crimson blood spurts from Kreionโ€™s trachea. A gill-like hole appears in the black armor covering the face, and blood drips through the gap.

Meanwhile, Bythos changed his jaw, which had been open, back to its original state.

โ€œYouโ€™re an individual who specializes in legion domination and cell control.โ€

โ€œKeuk. . . . Heuk. . . . Heuk. . . .โ€

Bythos pulls out a dagger he had brought in advance. It was a plasma cutter with extremely enhanced cutting power. The blue line flowing from the blade illuminates the surrounding darkness coldly.

โ€œThat Damian guy is exactly like that. A weak ruler type who just rolls his head and sends his subordinates or mobs. Just like you.โ€

โ€œKeuk. . . . Heuk. . . .โ€

โ€œYour personal combat power is nothing to see.โ€

Bythos takes a quick step. He pushes the cutter toward Kreion, who is lying on the floor and spewing blood.

โ€œIโ€™ll end your suffering.โ€

โ€œEuuuuuaaah!!!โ€

Kreion kicks the floor with all his might. He rushes toward Bythos, who is close enough to his nose, and swings the chrome-colored blade.

๐˜’๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜จ!

Bythos cut the flying blade with the cutter he was holding.

Kreionโ€™s blade, which he had been working on for 18 years, and the blade he had made to cut through hard materials and even armor, was cut like that.

It is impossible to deal with the plasma cutter made by humans with his own weapon. The technological gap between humans and chimeraz is staggering.

โ€œEven with a dying body, you fight desperately.โ€

Kreion protrudes one bone spike loaded in his left arm from the palm of his hand.

๐˜—๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜จ!

His left arm could not withstand the explosive chemical reaction and shattered, and at the same time, the bone spike shot out and flew into Bythosโ€™ chest at a speed similar to that of a bullet.

๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ถ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ!

Bythos grabbed the bone spike with one hand. It is a reflex nerve at least equal to or better than Kreion.

And he makes a puzzled expression.

โ€œWhy donโ€™t you die? Still.โ€

โ€œHeuk. . . . Heuk. . . .โ€

โ€œDid you interpret my virus by any chance?โ€

โ€œKeuk!โ€

Kreion deconstructs his black armor, absorbs it into his body, and shoots out black tentacles from both shoulders using the resources.

Zuuuuuuuk!!!

The tentacles wrap around Bythosโ€™ limbs. The tentacles wrap around Bythosโ€™ limbs so tightly that his skin is torn. However, strangely enough, the bones do not break.

โ€œYou interpreted my virus in the meantime, you were a more dangerous guy than I thought.โ€

Bythosโ€™ movements stopped right away, but the situation still looks disadvantageous. Thatโ€™s right,

๐˜ก๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ถ๐˜ฌ. . .!

Bythos began to tear off the tentacles wrapped around his body with all his might. Physically, it is impossible to understand how he can exert such power with that amount of muscle mass.

Immediately afterwards, Bythos presses Kreion with a wave voice.

๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ, ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ, ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ!

Bythos finally tore off the tentacles. And he trampled on the weak tentacles that were lying on the floor.

๐˜’๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜จ!!!

Just the series of actions to step on and burst the tentacles created cracks in the floor.

At that moment, Kreion and Bythosโ€™ crimson blood trembles.

๐˜Š๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ. . .!

The floor oxidizes. Itโ€™s because of the blood Kreion vomited a while ago. It smokes up a nasty smoke and melts the cracked floor.

Bythos recalls the information he knows.

โ€˜๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ช๐˜ด. . . . ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ง๐˜ญ๐˜ถ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ง๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜—๐˜ถ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ. . . โ€˜

๐˜Ž๐˜ถ๐˜จ๐˜ถ๐˜จ๐˜ถ๐˜จ๐˜ถ๐˜ฏ๐˜จ!!!

Thatโ€™s how Bythos and Kreion fell into the basement at the same time.

Even though the mansion had a power outage, the basement was even more pitch black, with only a dim light coming from the collapsed ceiling.

Bythos, who had already escaped from the tentaclesโ€™ restraint, jumps up from the concrete dust.

โ€œ. . .!โ€

Kreion is buried in the concrete debris over there, groaning in pain.

โ€œHa. . . . This b*stard is making a fuss like a loser. . . . Did you think I was going to die from a fall or something?โ€

Bythos fixes the cutter that he hadnโ€™t missed even while falling. He goes to Kreion like that.

He was going. He was going to go to Kreion.

โ€œYou have a tasty brain. . . .โ€

The moment Bythos looked back at the voice behind him.

๐˜’๐˜ฆ๐˜ถ๐˜ฌ!!!

A hard spit was stuck in his forehead.

โ€ . . .!โ€

It feels like his brain will be sucked out if he moves even a little.

โ€œW-What is this?! This is foul play!โ€

Kreion responds with waves.

โ€œStop talking nonsense, you despicable b*stard!โ€

There was an abyss waiting in the darkness of the basement.

An alien life form is speaking human language with red eyes glowing.

โ€œMaster. . . . What should I do with this guy?โ€

At that moment, a weak voice flowed out of the concrete debris.

โ€œ. . .Donโ€™t kill him. Itโ€™s a violation of the coming-of-age ceremony rules.โ€

And the real order is transmitted in waves.

๐˜š๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ!!!

Bythos felt his nerves, senses, consciousness, and soul all seep out through his forehead and disappear forever to a place he couldnโ€™t return to.

โ€œEeee. . . .! Eeee. . . .!!!โ€ Eee. . .?โ€

๐˜š๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ! ๐˜š๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ!!!

There was no scream next time.

Because the sense of moving to somewhere came before the sense of death.

๐˜š๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ. . . .

There was pain, but no fear, and not even last words, he couldnโ€™t understand the cause and just groaned.

โ€œEek. . . . . . .โ€

๐˜—๐˜ถ๐˜ค๐˜ฌ!

He collapsed as a corpse with empty bones.

๐˜š๐˜ธ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ. . . . ๐˜š๐˜ธ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ. . . .

Ludwig slithered his snake-like body in an S-shape and came to his masterโ€™s front.

โ€œMaster. . . . Are you okay. . .?โ€

The master, who always looked strong, seemed to have collapsed to the point of death.

โ€œIโ€™ve used up half of my insides. . . .โ€

โ€œWould you like to eat the flesh of that corpse. . .?โ€

โ€œNo. . . .โ€

๐˜—๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ!

Kreion grabbed Ludwigโ€™s spit and injected it into his arm like a syringe.

โ€œMaster. . .? If you hold it there. . . .โ€

โ€œThe nerve cells you ate. Inject them into me.โ€

โ€œAh. . . . I will do that. . . .โ€

Ludwig injects the brain cells he has just eaten into Kreionโ€™s blood vessels.

โ€œYou have to share what you like. . . .โ€

Even though they are fresh, they are already decomposed brain cells, so the loss of information is very large.

Kreion, who was trying to fit the puzzle of the information in Bythosโ€™ head as much as possible, suddenly became curious.

โ€œBut Ludwig.โ€

โ€œYes. . . .โ€

โ€œI didnโ€™t give you a taste bud, so how do you know itโ€™s delicious?โ€

โ€œIf I eat a brain, I feel my head full. . . .โ€

โ€œFeeling?โ€

โ€œMy body likes that ingredient and information. . . . Thatโ€™s why fresh brains whet my appetite. Thatโ€™s why it tastes good when you eat it. . . .โ€

What you like and what you hate.

It seems that Ludwigโ€™s individuality has become clear.
