My Children Swarm the Cosmos – Chapter 40.1

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟒𝟎: 𝐎𝐮𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐑𝐚𝐭 𝐇𝐨𝐥𝐞 (5)

In the red dwarf star system where the main settlement of the chimeraz is located, Anima, Gnox, Ludwig, Gats, and Berne remain.

Anima is the insurance for becoming the next ruler of the chimeraz in case the worst happens to the main force that left with the Nemea star.

Gnox is studying chimeraz in a safe settlement before he takes on the role of managing the evolution of chimeraz in the future.

Ludwig is conducting the command that occurs due to Kreion’s absence along with Anima.

Gats remained to escort Anima, Gnox, and Ludwig, and Berne continues to increase the number of his pack with his overwhelming legion dominance.

“Nazar left to observe human movements more closely and command a large number of Lemegeton. And Phlegeth also left with him since he is the most suitable leader for the invasion.”

Gnox nodded at Gats’ explanation, who had visited the evolution room.

“There’s a reason why some went and some didn’t.”

“Yes. There are proper reasons for all of Agele-nim’s decisions.”

“But Gats.”

“Yes.”

“Why do you call Agele-nim instead of master like the other leaders?”

“I am not a leader, but a captain of the guard. I am an extra-hierarchical entity, and the moment I reveal myself before the enemies is assumed to be when master is under threat.”

“Huh?”

“It is to differentiate my role from allies and enemies, both internally and externally.”

“I don’t know what you mean. Did Kreion-nim tell you to call him that way?”

“I requested it. I’m not a leader, so I thought it would be problematic to call him master like the other leaders.”

“Then why not Kreion-nim, why Agele-nim?”

“Agele means pack or herd. Unlike the leaders, Anima-nim, or Gnox-nim, I do not perceive him as a ruler or master.”

Gnox tilts his head.

“From my point of view, he is the chimeraz itself. That’s why I call him Agele-nim.”

“Hmm. . . Yeah.”

Gats continues to talk while knowing and not knowing. Gnox nodded again as if he understood roughly and then refocused on what he was doing.

Inside the translucent and large egg, something like a crustacean’s claw is connected to the tentacles and is touching the living being inside the egg.

Gnox inserts both of his hands into the two holes at the bottom of the egg, at the living tissue, and operates this organ. He is learning and modifying the structure of the new living being.

However, as he concentrates on his work, he becomes concerned about Gats’ gaze behind him.

“Don’t you have to go back to Anima-nim?”

“Anima-nim is building a Lemegeton’s nest outside with Ludwig-nim.”

“. . .”

It’s a bit awkward to keep your mouth shut because you have nothing to say when you are alone with someone. Gats may not be aware of such awkwardness, but Gnox, who has received human experiences as a human resource of the Darwin Foundation, is different.

“. . . Didn’t Kreion-nim change his mind because Anima-nim spoke to him before? Saying that it’s not right to kill humans indiscriminately. It’s reckless to make unnecessary sacrifices.”

“Yes. Agele-nim went to talk to them in order to establish the condition of peace between the chimeraz and humans.”

“They were going to use force if the conversation didn’t work out.”

“Yes.”

“Assuming they used force, who would the opponent be?”

“New Ark.”

“They are the group that creates and manages dimensional passageways all over the galaxy. They don’t have their own military since they’re a public force.”

“That’s what the known information says.”

“Then if Kreion-nim, who left for Nemea, fights something. . . It seems like it will become Nemea’s regular army right away.”

“That’s possible.”

All countries belong to the UNF. It is to prevent wars between countries today, and to pursue harmony and protection both inside and outside of humanity by uniting under the name of humanity.

In other words, the UNF is the sum of the military power that humanity possesses.

The Nemea stellar nation is of course a member of the UNF.

“It seems like things will get too big if they clash with the Nemea regular army. . .”

“If force is used in Nemea, the chimeraz will ask questions.”

“To whom?”

“Darwin Foundation, New Ark Corporation, Nemea government, UNF, and all of humanity, we will ask them various questions. And they will make a choice regarding the chimeraz.”

“We’re not a race that looks pretty by human standards. I don’t think New Ark or humanity will listen to our voice. Honestly, I don’t expect a beautiful result.”

“If it continues like this, that is also their choice.”

In order for the question they ask to humans when the situation arises where they have to use force to gain power, they will have to prove that their power is by no means easy.
