My Children Swarm the Cosmos โ€“ Chapter 18

Aria died a little while ago. No sooner had she died than the Foundation was notified, and just as Haber had told me, the other secretaries probably informed their own subjects of the news.

And itโ€™s not hard to predict that an attack will come as soon as Ariaโ€™s death is confirmed. After all, a proper battle requires time to regroup.

Iโ€™m taking advantage of that time to walk the night streets.

I am currently wearing a piece of clothing with a hood covering my head. This piece of clothing is also made with cells, just like what I wear to go to work every day.

Humans call this type of clothing design a hoodie.

I had previously weaved my walking route to be complex, being mindful of the security cameras and parked vehicles whose locations I had thoroughly scouted out earlier. This was to make it difficult for humans to notice me easily.

Of course, it is possible that humans might find my actions suspicious and try to get in my way like last time, but judging from Haberโ€™s excellent handling of things, it seems that human intervention can be easily suppressed.

I have arrived at Damianโ€™s address, which I found from Ariaโ€™s memories.

Damianโ€™s residence is a mansion slightly smaller than my own, and it does not seem to have any separate security system for detecting intruders. This is thanks to the fact that the installation cost of a security system is very high.

There was a flat device attached to the entrance of the mansion to identify visitors.

ใ€ŒThis is the XProtect home security system, always ensuring high reliability and safety.ใ€

When you donโ€™t have a cell phone, it is very common to use your body for authentication.

I create Damianโ€™s fingerprints, Damianโ€™s face, and Damianโ€™s irises, then wait while placing my five fingers on the screen.

ใ€ŒIris pattern matching rate: 99.4%ใ€

ใ€ŒIf you cannot use your fingerprint, you can try cell phone authentication or password authentication.ใ€

It seems that there was a wrong fingerprint among the five fingerprints of Damian that I saw from afar.

I correct the fingerprint by recalling the visual memory.

ใ€ŒFacial pattern matching rate: 99.6%ใ€

The door opened automatically.

๐˜›๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ!

I quickly crossed the garden, which was made up of only grass, and reached the front door. If a text message was sent to Damian, he would be on alert for intruders by now.

Therefore, in order for an โ€˜ambushโ€™ to work here, I have to simultaneously recognize Damianโ€™s presence and kill him.

๐˜Š๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฉ!!!

I broke the window on the first floor and entered. The lights inside the mansion were all switched to night mode, emitting a faint light.

Damian specializes in legion control and strategic tactics.

This means that rather than personal combat abilities, he has developed more towards legion control and using his brain. Therefore, the more time I give him to think, the more disadvantageous it will be for me.

The space where I entered after breaking the window was a spacious shower room.

๐˜š๐˜ธ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ . . .

I equip my full body with black armor within 1.6 seconds. I maximize my sensory abilities in order to find Damianโ€™s presence as quickly as possible.

The sound of insects in the garden stepping on grass, the vibration of vehicles running on the road 60 meters away from the mansion, and . . . .

My eyes that brighten the darkness found Damian first.

This is an unexpected situation.

Just like it was unexpected for them, it was unexpected for me as well.

There is a dead body.

A dead body that has not moved an inch. I canโ€™t tell who it is because it has decomposed to such an extent, but the stench of blood is stronger than the smell of decay.

I approach the unidentified corpse.

Judging from how painfully it must have been before death, the fingernails are all exposed with the joints twisted here and there. The bloodstains on the bathroom floor are connected from the corpse to the large bathtub in the corner on the other side. It seems that it crawled desperately on the shower room floor from the bathtub to this location before dying.

The skin that has turned a dark color, the flesh that has been decayed and necrotized, the dark red entrails flowing out from the outside of the navel, and the distorted and swollen face.

The remaining opponents in this coming-of-age ceremony are only Autophagy Tosis and Bellum Damian.

The owner of this house is Damian,

and upon taking a closer look at the eyes of the corpse, they are Damianโ€™s eyes.

I did not kill Damian. I tried to kill him.

In that case, the only one who could have killed Damian in such a gruesome manner is Tosis.

๐˜š๐˜ฒ๐˜ถ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ฉ . . . .

I happened to step on a bloodstain, and the blood had not hardened.

This is strange.

The corpse has decomposed to this extent, but the blood has not hardened. There are no maggots, no flies, and the stench of blood is stronger than the smell of decay.

I understand.

Tosis killed Damian while he was still alive and let him decompose.

Up until I left my mansion, Haber did not bring me the news of Damianโ€™s death.

This means that Damian entered this shower room and was attacked by Tosis. Tosis used some kind of ability to decompose him while he was still alive, and as a result, Damian just died. And I arrived right after that, before the blood could even harden.

Since he just died, I might be able to obtain some meaningful information from Damianโ€™s corpse.

I reach out with tentacles from my fingertips and access Damianโ€™s brain. I forcibly send electrical signals into the dead body and concentrate my consciousness on the neural cells that make up the brain.

There is a lot of information loss due to decomposition and necrosis inside the skull as well.

However, what Damian experienced right before he died was the most recent information stored the strongest, and fortunately, I was able to catch a glimpse of those damaged memories, albeit in fragments.

Former 4th batch experimental subject 374.

Bellum Damian is a case that barely passed the preliminary selection with excellent legion control and strategy. He judged that he would be lacking in strength and preparation time compared to the 1st batch, 2nd batch, and 3rd batch experiment subjects who had passed the preliminary selection before him, so he took a strategic approach to the coming-of-age ceremony.

This was the conversation Damian had with the 3rd batch Subject 240, Aria.

Damian reused the cards he obtained through promises in promises with other opponents.

In that way, Damian, who had cleverly escaped from the โ€˜priority of attack of competitorsโ€™, decided to quietly watch the situation to decide which side to take and who to use.

Anyway, since the experiment subjects except for him would kill each other and only one would survive in the end, he could at least increase his chances of winning the coming-of-age ceremony with a 1 on 1 battle.

The 5th batch Experimental Subject 412, Kreion, who came out of the facility the latest, did not seem to have any strengths to utilize in the coming-of-age ceremony.

He didnโ€™t even seem to realize his disadvantage, and after the coming-of-age ceremony began, it seemed like he had no experience negotiating with other experiment subjects until Damian approached him first.

Nevertheless, Damian did not rule out Kreion as a variable and approached him. Thatโ€™s how he was able to secure a safe position and a promise of strength to utilize in the future.

Not long after, he heard from Aria that Bythos was dead. Kreion killed Bythos.

However, he did not believe her words. It was unimaginable that Kreion, who had a strong emphasis on strategic aspects similar to himself, would defeat Bythos in an engagement.

However, for some reason, the police were moving to restrain Kreion at that time.

So for the time being, he pretended to agree with her words and helped her restrain Kreion. From Damianโ€™s point of view, the first person he should join hands with was Aria, not Kreion.

Every single action was cautious and passive, as if walking on a slippery ice rink. First, the easiest Kreion, and after Kreion dies, the next easiest Bythos.

Thatโ€™s how he planned it.

He intended to continue doing that.

But things went seriously wrong.

He thought Bythosโ€™ death on the first day was just a minor incident, but on the second day, Aria suddenly died.

Two people died in just two days.

โ€˜๐˜ž๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ?!โ€™

Did Aria kill Bythos and then Kreion killed Aria?

Did Kreion kill Bythos and Tosis kill Aria?

Did Tosis kill Bythos and Aria from the beginning?

Or did Kreion kill both Bythos and Aria?

There are many scenarios that come to mind, but none of them can be confirmed.

He doesnโ€™t know who killed who.

While Damian was trying his best to calm his mind, something was approaching from the basement.

It broke through the bathroom floor and popped out.ย
