My Children Swarm the Cosmos – Chapter 39.2

“Humanity must prepare in advance. That is the absolute order given to me, and it is Darwin’s homework, who has the greatest biotechnology in humanity.”

“I don’t know if I’m the right person for that.”

“You are.”

“Do I have a choice to refuse?”

“If you refuse, we will have no choice but to cut off the astronomical amount of project support funds and all the sponsorships currently provided to the Darwin Foundation and find another suitable person.”

Eventually, he did it.

He had no choice but to do it. That was right.

‘𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘩𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘺.’

The Human Race-Affiliated Bioweapon Speciation Project gradually took shape as the ‘Chimeraz Project,’ and the Darwin Foundation took another leap forward, receiving unprecedented sponsorship and support from various sources in the name of assistance.

‘𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘮𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘍𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯.’

1 year, 2 years, 3 years passed. Time continued to flow.

‘𝘍𝘰𝘳 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺𝘰𝘯𝘦.’

10 years. 15 years.

Wrinkles formed at the corners of his mouth and forehead, and time passed. During those long years, Darwin, who had devoted himself to the Chimeraz Project, had changed without even realizing it.

‘𝘖𝘯𝘭𝘺 𝘐 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘥𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴. 𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘐 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘥𝘰.’

Will. Duty. Sense of mission. Belief. The meaning of his own existence and the Foundation.

In fact, they were all ‘obsessions’ wrapped up in those things.

Darwin, the human, was consumed by the 18 years of time. He had put in so much effort and investment that he couldn’t even think of the possibility of giving up or failing.

Let alone a malfunction of the device. Rather than giving up because of such a trivial mistake, he would rather die.

‘𝘒𝘳𝘦𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘪𝘴 𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘦.’

The mother test subject died, the researchers died, and the private soldiers died. He felt guilty in his heart, but success was more important than that.

‘𝘐 𝘮𝘢𝘥𝘦 𝘪𝘵. . . 𝘐𝘵’𝘴 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘦. . .’

Even if it was a failure, Kreion was his. It was entirely his achievement. If it couldn’t be an achievement, he had to tear it down with his own hands and build it again. It was something that only he could do. Only he had the right to do so.

‘𝘈𝘨𝘢𝘪𝘯. . . 𝘐 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘸𝘪𝘱𝘦 𝘪𝘵 𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘤𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘯𝘭𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘵 𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳. . .’

However, he couldn’t kill it. He couldn’t dispose of it.

The speed at which the Chimeraz was growing was so extraordinary.

Before he knew it, he had even vaguely forgotten the reason why he started the Chimeraz Project in the first place.

In the end, he lost Apoptology. His own utopia was terribly destroyed before his eyes. He captured that scene in his eyes that day. It wasn’t even his intention.

Half of his life was invested in the Darwin Foundation’s Apoptology, and the other half was invested in the Chimeraz Project, but he couldn’t save either of them. The new Chimeraz Project that New Ark had been secretly preparing for also failed. Even the last hope disappeared when he lost the new ruler individual.

Nothing went his way.

Everything was the worst.

And the worst of all was himself.

“I’m a cripple. . . I’m a real cripple. . . Ughhhhhhh. . .”

The higher he climbed, the more he invested, and the more he had in his hands, the fall was a completely different height for him than for an ordinary person.

It was like an abyss with no bottom in sight.

“I’ve gotten old and lost everything. . . Hehehehe. . . Heh. . . Ugh. . . Ughhhhhhh. . .’

At that moment, Darwin pointed the loaded gun at his own temple.

He just wanted to pull the trigger. He had pulled the trigger in his mind countless times.

He thought he could pull it at that moment.

If only there was no radio transmission from the private soldiers.

━𝐂𝐡𝐢𝐞𝐟! 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫 𝐁𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐥𝐞 𝐃𝐮𝐨 𝐡𝐚𝐬 𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐞𝐝. . . !

“. . .”

Was it curiosity?

‘𝘓𝘦𝘵’𝘴 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘥𝘪𝘦 𝘢 𝘭𝘪𝘵𝘵𝘭𝘦 𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘳. . .’

Or was it,

Foolish hope?

🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹

In the words of the fall, he miraculously saw a dazzling hope, but Ark seemed to be already putting the results of the calculation into action. Darwin had forgotten what that calculation was exactly.

Kreion’s mind finally returned, but his disposal had already been decided.

“No, no. Ark! What will happen if you cut off things front and back and give such an order? In this good situation, you need to explain it so that I can understand it. . . !”

𝘗𝘢𝘱𝘢𝘱𝘢𝘱𝘢𝘱𝘢𝘣𝘢𝘯𝘨!!!

The energy rifles of the private soldiers aimed at Kreion fired on their own.

Darwin thought the sound of those guns would bring down the world.

𝘑𝘫𝘦𝘰𝘬. . . !

However, Kreion responded with incredible reaction speed. In an instant, when neither Darwin nor the private soldiers noticed, he extended a bundle of thorns like a straight line from his back.

The hedgehog-like Kreion was fine, and the thorns extending from his back pierced the muzzles of the energy rifles held by the private soldiers.

𝘛𝘩𝘶𝘥!

𝘉𝘢𝘯𝘨!!

Several energy rifles with thorns stuck in their muzzles fell to the ground. The thorns also broke and fell. And everyone in the space held their breath without moving.

“. . . Chief. That Humanoid is. . .”

“No, that’s not it, it’s a misunderstanding! It’s all a misunderstanding!”

Darwin desperately denied it, waving his hands.

Kreion only turned his head and looked at the small Humanoid.

“Ark. . . New Ark Corporation.”

“Kreion. I warn you and your Chimeraz race.”

“I’ll be the one giving the warning.”

Kreion got up from his seat and walked fearlessly towards the Humanoid. As he walked, the black clothes that had been wrapped around his body changed into armor.

“Can you handle that choice?”

“What choice are you talking about?”

“Do you mean to attack the Chimeraz who came to reconcile with humans once again and wage a war in which countless sacrifices may be made as a choice of New Ark?”

The war.

By using that word, he informed them that the scale of the clash between the Chimeraz and New Ark could never be taken lightly. However,

“The disposal of the Chimeraz has been decided. If we can eliminate the Chimeraz race before it grows further and becomes a greater threat, we will not hesitate to go to war. You are an extremely dangerous failure.”

“Is that New Ark’s judgment, or the judgment of all humanity?”

The Ark, which had occupied the Humanoid, did not yield to Kreion’s momentum at all.

“For now, it is New Ark’s judgment. However, if you resist our disposal, it may become the judgment of humanity. So surrender.”

“War is what you mean if the Chimeraz does not surrender and refuses to be disposed of. You want nothing less than our extinction.”

“Yes.”

“I have well understood New Ark’s intentions through this place today.”

Kreion protruded a chrome blade from his right arm. And then he looked around at Darwin and the private soldiers and asserted.

“. . . Then, until humanity wants a truce, we will occupy human territory one by one. On top of that, we will make sure that the ‘reason for the war’ is New Ark’s intention. Nemea will be the starting point of the war.”

“The reason for the war will not be as you wish.”

𝘒𝘦𝘺𝘪𝘯𝘨!

At that moment, the small Humanoid moved faster than a human and pulled out the pistol from the private soldier’s waist. Also, Kreion could not be killed with a pistol like that. So Kreion strongly felt that the muzzle of that pistol was aimed at ‘himself’, not at someone behind him.

It was a short moment, less than a breath.

𝘑𝘫𝘦𝘰𝘯𝘨. . . !

Kreion’s blade cut the small Humanoid vertically.
