My Children Swarm the Cosmos – Chapter 39.3

“Hey, Kreion. . . This is. . .”

Darwin was sweating profusely. His appearance was so miserable.

“Oh, I, really didn’t think New Ark would turn out like that. . . I didn’t set a trap to kill you or anything. I-I know I did wrong to you, so I would never do anything like that. . .”

“I know.”

Kreion’s attitude seemed to have changed from before.

“I know that the Chief came because he thought I was Commander Brinicle Duo. Neither the Chief nor New Ark would have had prior information about setting a trap. If I had set a trap, I would have prepared a more powerful weapon than that energy rifle.”

“T-That’s right. . . ! You’re right!”

“And I don’t think it was the Foundation’s intention that my mother starved to death before this incident happened today.”

The biggest mistake of the Darwin Foundation and Darwin’s biggest failure, that incident back then. The incident that became the root of all tragedies, when Kreion killed countless people and escaped from the Foundation and came back to destroy Apoptology.

Kreion, who had been so angry and rampaging, was now analyzing the incident coldly.

“The Foundation’s response wasn’t without problems, but the decisive factor was the malfunction of the device. I don’t think that was a coincidence.”

“That. . . That’s, that’s right. . . It was a little suspicious that the malfunction happened twice. You’re right.”

In front of the current Kreion, Darwin no longer needed to clarify anything further.

“Chief. I’m going to start the invasion now. New Ark just declared war on me.”

“You’re going to invade humanity. . . ?”

“If it doesn’t work with persuasion, it’s the only way to prove the force that the other side can’t help but respond to in peace. In the end, New Ark gave me an excuse to prove my force.”

“That’s true. . . Besides, New Ark must already be intervening in some way with Nemea’s military or police or high-ranking officials in order to kill you.”

“Yes. It can’t be helped. I can’t die here like this, and I hate the future even more where my race will die unnecessarily after I die.”

And there was no room to fight by selectively looking at the target of force.

“It was not supposed to be like this. . . I see. I guess I have to run away from you.”

Darwin wouldn’t have known. That he had just unintentionally revealed his desire to live.

“If you have connections to Nemea’s high-ranking officials, let them know as well. If possible, tell them to escape with as many civilians as possible. I will not touch civilian ships that are evacuating, humans who have no intention of fighting, and civilians hiding in underground shelters on the planet.”

Darwin and the private soldiers doubted their own ears at his intentions.

“You’re going to save people like that? You wouldn’t. . .”

“It’s not that. I just need hostages.”

“. . .I see.”

The Chimeraz was a Chimeraz.

“How much time do you have until your invasion?”

“About 10 minutes.”

“Oh my god. . .”

He said that he had been preparing since before he even entered the planet Nemea in the first place.

“Anyway, without the Darwin Foundation, I wouldn’t even exist in this world.”

This time, Kreion readily held out his right hand to Darwin.

Darwin hesitated for a few moments, swallowing his words, and then took Kreion’s right hand.

“I’m ashamed of myself. I was quite a lacking person. I’m still lacking.”

“Me too.”

Kreion and Darwin’s handshake ended one immature past and opened a new chapter.

“Thank you for everything, Chief.”

“. . . I will endure it. So you must endure it too. A good day will come someday.”

Kreion and Darwin decided to leave hope for each other.


November 28, 2620. The contents to be recorded in the annals of humanity’s major events finally revealed their form.

Kreion, who had already entered the Nemea planet’s spaceport and the Darwin Foundation building, confirmed through the window that the Foundation officials were leaving far away.

The private soldiers escorting Darwin are almost at the level of an army. With that many numbers, they should be safe in many ways.

The Darwin Foundation’s work was settled.

New Ark’s intention was also confirmed.

Now the opponent to face is humanity.

‘𝘈 𝘣𝘰𝘮𝘣 𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘧𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘰𝘯 𝘮𝘺 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘥. 𝘔𝘪𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘭𝘦𝘴 𝘰𝘳 𝘴𝘯𝘪𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘢𝘵𝘵𝘢𝘤𝘬 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘪𝘥𝘦.’

He assumes all situations. And act.

𝘒𝘶𝘥𝘥𝘦𝘶𝘥𝘦𝘶𝘥𝘦𝘶𝘥𝘦𝘶𝘵. . . !

From the palm of his hand, a tentacle that looks like a flexible hose stretches out and drills the floor like a drill. The tentacle, which went down through the ceiling and floor about 20 floors below, was embedded all the way to the basement.

The small planet Nemea was covered with several layers of artificial outer shells during the terraforming process to have proper gravity and magnetic field.

Therefore, as you go down from the surface to the bottom, the pressure and temperature rise tremendously, and that pressure and temperature are all emitted by the artificial outer shells that receive energy from the inner core.

As he went down hundreds of meters through the thick concrete, the heat was definitely felt.

And heat becomes the most basic energy source.

𝘒𝘶𝘨𝘶𝘨𝘶𝘨𝘶𝘨𝘶𝘨𝘶𝘯𝘨. . . !

In the shallow underground, tentacles spread like roots in all directions absorb the necessary resources. In this way, it forms the heart of the colony at an appropriate location underground, and grows a strange exoskeleton to protect the colony that has grown above and below the ground.

The exoskeleton of the colony grows around the 22-story building, breaking the concrete. At the same time, the life tissue that stretches out like a thread is woven together in a dizzying manner and expands in the shape of a dome.

People at the spaceport soon saw it.

“What’s growing there?”

“What is that?!”

“What a strange. . . Is it alive?”

“I-It keeps getting bigger. . . !”

People realized that the colony was an unknown life form that had grown rapidly. Soon, the entire spaceport became abuzz, and each formed a crowd to escape, while heavily armed police forces and special forces for biological disasters approached.

In the solid colony, in the darkness where the sound of the heart beats, Kreion sends a wave.

‘𝘕𝘢𝘻𝘢𝘳, 𝘗𝘩𝘭𝘦𝘨𝘦𝘵𝘩, 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘯 𝘰𝘧 𝘮𝘺 𝘱𝘢𝘤𝘬.’

‘𝘚𝘩𝘰𝘸 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘰𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘶𝘴 𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘨𝘵𝘩, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘭𝘦𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘨𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘶𝘱 𝘰𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘶𝘴 𝘳𝘶𝘯 𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘺.’

‘𝘛𝘰𝘥𝘢𝘺, 𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘴𝘩𝘦𝘥 𝘣𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘸𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘦 𝘧𝘳𝘦𝘦𝘥𝘰𝘮. 𝘞𝘦 𝘤𝘩𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘪𝘯𝘷𝘢𝘥𝘦 𝘣𝘦𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘸𝘦 𝘸𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘪𝘯𝘷𝘢𝘥𝘦𝘥.’

‘𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘪𝘵𝘶𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘸𝘢𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘤𝘦𝘥. 𝘕𝘰𝘸, 𝘪𝘧 𝘸𝘦 𝘥𝘰𝘯’𝘵 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘨𝘵𝘩, 𝘸𝘦 𝘸𝘰𝘯’𝘵 𝘣𝘦 𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘢𝘺 𝘢 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘥.’

At the same moment, a huge shadow and black figures surrounding it in a ring formation appeared 3.4 billion kilometers away from the Opeltes cloud.

Like a nightmare from the abyss.

They approach with a fearsome momentum.

Then, Phlegeth, who was inside a huge creature, shouted.

“Devour that insignificant planet!”

Nazar, who was in a creature somewhere else, ordered.

“Invade Nemea. It is a world that will perish.”

The colony that grew heterogeneously at the spaceport stopped growing.

This is because the resources used for the growth of the colony are being used elsewhere.

‘𝘐 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘧𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘩𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘴 𝘢𝘭𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘣𝘦𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘥𝘦𝘱𝘭𝘰𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘭𝘰𝘯𝘺. 𝘐𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘮𝘦𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦, 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘴𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘥 𝘌𝘶𝘳𝘺𝘢𝘭𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘬 𝘵𝘩𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘭𝘦𝘦𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘥𝘳𝘰𝘱 𝘋𝘳𝘰𝘱 𝘊𝘺𝘴𝘵 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘨𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥 𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦.’

Finally, the planetary invasion began.
