I’m not a Regressor chapter 144
Star Forsaken Land (6)
The eyes of Yuji who spoke that name were gleaming with deep hatred as if on fire.
“You want me to kill Kurosaki Sosuke?”
“Yes! I’ll give him whatever help he needs!”
Yuji cried out in a desperate voice while kneeling.
“Gee, it was sent to the branch saying it’s useless now, but… Still, under him, we developed a device that makes ‘nutrition’ for over a year! There is so much I can tell you!”
Ha-eun frowned at the pathetic plea.
“How can you believe that I’m just saying I’m going to live here?”
“I am not saying I am going to live. Just listen to the information you need and you can kill me right here.”
There was no feeling of fear on his face as he quietly asked him to kill him.
Ha-eun sighed with a puzzled expression.
“Why do you even want to kill Kurosaki Sosuke? Are you kidnapping and forcibly exploiting you?”
Yuji continued, biting her lip as if she was about to burst into tears.
“younger sister… One sister… there is.”
The only hand that remained was trembling.
“Sosuke kidnapped my sister and gave her ‘sea horse poison’ to prevent me from using my stupid tricks.”
“Poison of the seahorse?”
“It is a poison that can lead to death if you do not drink the water Sosuke himself made once a week. He uses this poison on all his subordinates to make sure he never betrays him.”
“… Then you too?”
Yuji nodded her head with a stiff expression on her face.
“Yes. I drank it once 3 days ago… I will be dead in the next four days.”
His tone, speaking calmly of his own death, was still as dry as a parched land.
“I don’t mind . After all, even if it’s not four days later, I’m destined to die here today for all of you. But… .”
Kwok. He clenched his fists and spoke in a trembling voice.
“Like my little sister… Please save as much as my sister! Surely Kurosaki must have an antidote!”
He slammed the floor violently and shouted like a scream.
“My sister… Yoko is not guilty of anything! It’s all my fault!! I… If only I hadn’t submitted such a thesis to the conference… !”
“What thesis do you mean?”
Sakaki, who had been listening to the conversation with a stiff face, asked.
“In Japan… This is a thesis on how to artificially open the door to the sanctuary.”
Open the sanctuary artificially.
Rebuild the land abandoned by the stars.
Could there be a more seductive word for the Japanese, who had been ridiculed and despised by neighboring countries?
“Hey, is there such a way?”
Yuji nodded with a face covered in thick darkness.
“It is possible by obtaining an extra large amount of elixir and artificially creating dragon veins. Of course, the reaction of the society was not good, saying that the thesis was unrealistic because it was a large-scale procedure that required absurd materials and manpower… .”
“There appears to be a guy who actually wants to do that unrealistic thing.”
“Then this ‘nutrient’ is… .”
“It is a substitute for an elixir. It would be impossible for even the Seven Stars to obtain an elixir weighing several tons.”
As Yuji said.
The elixir that can be made using the kerosene is all sold at a high price, no matter how low the quality.
It is practically impossible to obtain an elixir weighing several tons.
Especially in Japan, where national power is running low along with the annihilation of ‘the land abandoned by the stars’, there must have been no way to airlift.
‘That’s why this device was made.’
Oh-jin narrowly opened her eyes as she looked at the round barrels installed all the way in the basement.
I felt the smell of fishy blood coming from a round tub filled with clear water.
“… crazy bastards.”
Ha-eun sharply sharpened her teeth and kicked the round barrel roughly.
“Anyway, does it make sense to put a whole person in this and melt it?!”
Seeing her bursting with anger, Oh Jin smiled bitterly.
In fact, does she know that what they do and what she does are not so different?
‘I’m sure you know because I told you.’
But she’s probably mistaken for a kind of hero who picks and kills only the bad guys and takes the stigma like loot.
‘It’s not like that.’
It doesn’t matter if it’s good or bad.
After all, the concept of good and evil is subjective.
The reason they are aiming for the Black Crusade is that the magic of the Black Star they possess is helpful in cultivating the Black Sky.
‘Well, if my sister misunderstood me like that.’
Trying to be a hero.
I thought it wouldn’t be that bad.
“So what information can you give us?”
Oh-jin burst into anger and asked Ha-eun, who was kicking her with the momentum to break the round barrel.
Yuji, who had been kneeling on the floor, slowly got up.
“Come this way.”
With that said, he entered the control room.
As if reminiscent of a boiler room, twelve monitors were shining in the room full of huge and complex machinery.
“This is the king of seahorses, Kurosaki Sosuke.”
A picture of a man appeared on one screen.
A middle-aged man with long slit snake eyes and prominent cheekbones.
A goatee on the back of his face was making a fire point for his mean appearance.
“Kurosaki Sosuke… .”
It was the moment when Kurosaki Sosuke, who had never been seen in a veil until now, was revealed for the first time.
Sakaki, who was staring intently at the picture, clenched his fists as if he was barely suppressing the person who was coming up.
A thick tendon grew on the back of one hand, the size of the lid of the pot.
“Oh my gosh. Isn’t that person that person? that… Someone who used to be a member of the National Assembly.”
“Well? Come to think of it… .”
Sakaki, who had been embarrassed by the face he knew, opened his eyes wide.
Yuji nodded his head.
“Yes. Yes. Kurosaki Sosuke has a history of working as a far-right politician in the past.”
“That’s why you turned your attention to making sanctuaries in Japan like that.”
Sakaki looked at Sosuke’s picture with pitiful eyes.
Fools drunk on the faded old glory.
To them, the annihilation of ‘the land abandoned by the stars’ must have been an unbearable shame.
“Sigh. You showed me how pathetic this is, but yes.”
Sakaki sighed deeply and shook his head.
“So, where is he hiding now?”
“I don’t know about that. They move from place to place every time.”
“Then, is one picture the end of information about him?”
There was no way to catch Kurosaki Sosuke with just a photo of her daughter.
Eugene calmly shook his head and continued speaking.
“I don’t know where he is, but I know how to summon him.”
“How to call?”
“As I said, Sosuke has created facilities called ‘fire chambers’ all over the city to open a sanctuary in Japan and kidnaps the Awakened.”
Eugene’s explanation continued.
“I don’t know the exact progress, but… You probably haven’t gotten enough ‘nutrition’ to open the sanctuary yet. If the fire extinguisher installed in that state is broken… .”
“I have no choice but to show up, right?”
“But how are you going to find the location of the fire room?”
It took more than several months to find one branch.
In a situation where other organizations and guilds were afraid of the Black Crusade and did not even support them, it was almost impossible to destroy enough fire extinguishers to stop Sosuke’s plan.
“I know the location of the fire room.”
“Yes. I was the one who developed this machine in the first place. We have secretly placed a cord on each machine so that we can locate the fire extinguisher.”
“… It’s like you’ve been waiting for this day to come.”
Yuji nodded her head, brightening her eyes fiercely.
He grabbed the section of his severed left arm and quietly burst into condensed anger.
“Since I was captured by that devil child… I was waiting for this day to come.”
Sakaki swallowed his saliva at the emotion of anger that was so vivid that his skin pierced.
“This is where the fire room is. We can’t move this huge piece of machinery in a short time, so moving right away will be enough to find and destroy the fire chamber before they hide.”
On the map that Yuji pulled out, the location where the fire room was located was clearly marked.
There are five locations marked on the map.
Two of them corresponded exactly to the location of the branch of the Hippocampus faction that Cheon Do-yoon had heard of.
Eugene, who handed Sakaki the map, shrugged his shoulders, smiling softly as if he had fulfilled his mission.
“Now, as promised, please kill me.”
“… … .”
“… … .”
A suffocating silence descended.
Eugene gave a self-assured smile and extended his neck toward Sakaki.
“There is no need to hesitate. No matter how intimidated you are… I was the one who built these terrible machines.”
Eugene clenched his fists and sobbed.
“Every time I see the Awoken killed here… I thought. I think that those people must have a family they want to protect like me.”
She lowers her head and sheds tears.
“Jeon… It’s garbage that doesn’t deserve to live. Please. I… Please kill me.”
“… Do you have any regrets about that choice?”
“Yes. Oh, one last thing I want to ask you… .”
He looked up at Sakaki with a self-assured smile.
“that… I want you to kill me at once without pain. Haha, I’m well aware that someone like me doesn’t deserve to die in peace, but… But the thought of dying is a bit scary.”
I could see her trembling shoulders.
Eugene slowly closed his eyes as if he was ready to die.
“… … .”
Sakaki looked down at Eugene with her mouth firmly shut and her eyes closed.
An intangible wave rises in the hand holding the sword.
No matter how gritty the story was, he was a member of those who kidnapped and killed his family.
I know better than anyone that I should never forgive.
“Whoa. Koshiro, bring Yumehanashi.”
“Yes! Oh yabung!”
Koshiro rushed outside and brought a white string about the thickness of a finger.
On the white stripes were engraved intricate patterns of tactics.
“Tie it up.”
Koshiro tied the brought white cord to Eugene’s forehead.
“Do not resist the flowing magic, just accept it.”
Eugene swallowed dry saliva and nodded.
Soon, a blue light flashed from the white stripe around his head, and Eugene’s eyes gradually turned hazy.
The effect of Yumehanashi was activated, and he forcibly entered a hypnotic state.
Confirming that Eugene was completely hypnotized, Sakaki hurriedly opened his mouth.
Yumehanashi’s effect lasts only 10 seconds.
Since the target once caught has resistance and cannot be used again, it was necessary to confirm the truth with this one time.
“Are there any lies in what I have said so far?”
“Yes. all… In fact, yes, everything.”
As if Ojin used his dominion over the owls, Eugene stuttered in response to Sakaki’s question.
Sakaki let out a deep sigh and scratched his short hair.
I’d rather be lying.
There was never a time when emotions that had been so overwhelming were weighing down on my heart.
“… Nothing in the world is so easy.”
Sakaki motioned for Koshiro to untie the Yumehanashi wrapped around Yujin’s forehead.
Just before Yumehanashi was released.
A woman’s name came out of Eugene’s lips.
It was the name of his younger sister who was captured by the Black Star.
“Sorry… I’m sorry, Yoko… .”
“… … .”
When Yumehanashi was released, Eugene collapsed on the seat as if fainting.
Sakaki hugged Eugene who had fallen without a word.
“Oh Ya-bung, that person… .”
“Take it at once.”
Koshiro bowed his head and accepted Eugene from Sakaki.
“I’ll tie you up in the annex.”
Koshiro went out.
“Aren’t you going to kill me?”
“… I am worried.”
Ohjin nodded slightly, looking at Sakaki, who was engulfed in deep anguish.
“I will leave the choice to Sakaki-san.”
“Thank you. Oh, they can run away, so I’m planning to raid the branch right away this evening, is that okay?”
“Sure. I haven’t done much this time.”
“haha. Thank you, Ojin.”
Sakaki smiled weakly and patted Oh Jin on the shoulder.
His hand, which had been pounding so hard that it hurt his shoulder, had lost a lot of strength.
After going out to Sakaki like that.
“… Oh Ji-na, was it Jang Seok-ho or that person? already.”
Ha-eun had sad eyes and blurted the end of her words.
“I do not know yet.”
Grinding his teeth, he stared at the picture of Sosuke Kurosaki that appeared on the monitor.
“Even looking at those owl cubs, I thought they were bastards, but these guys are a bit more upbeat.”
“Because there are crazy people everywhere.”
“Let’s just wipe them all out this time.”
Ha-eun burned with fighting spirit, pulled out a cigarette and put it in her mouth.
“Oh, but Oh Jin-ah, don’t you do that? What do you mean by reversing what you said?”
“I don’t need to do that this time.”
“but. Because you wrote something like Yumehana.”
Ha-eun took a deep breath on the lit cigarette.
“Then let’s go break down this dog-like fire extinguisher.”
The finished butts were thrown into a round bucket filled with water.
A fire broke out, and the fire chamber that would have taken the lives of many Awoken was engulfed in flames.
“… … .”
Oh-jin looked at the fire extinguisher engulfed in flames without saying a word, and then slowly turned around.
There was a bitter expression on his face that could not be hidden.
