“Oh, Pedro. I think you’re staying at Natsuki’s house today…….”
I barged into the gang’s office wearing the skin of a half-naked guy.
I had Natsuki and the others wait in a deserted cafe nearby, and put Diamond on lookout, then went straight for the gang’s main base.
The office was located in one of the Haven buildings. Apparently, the entire floor of the building was occupied by one of the Sludge Club’s offices.
The key was to make it look like a gang fight as much as possible.
I stabbed the first person to death with a knife I had bought on the way, using the gun on my hip. I shot and killed the two men in the room near the entrance. It’s been a long time since I used an automatic gun.
The office erupted with the sound of this gunshot.
I quickly grabbed a submachine gun that was in the room and rushed into the large room.
“Pedro! What the hell was —“
*Brrrrrrr* I fired the machine gun, spreading it horizontal line and killed him.
“You betrayed us!”
Then came the returning fire.
There were only six people left in the office as far as I can see. There were also signs of people in the back, so there were probably at least ten people in total.
In fact, I wanted to show my professional soldier skills such as using obstacles for cover, checking, and closing the distance as the opponent reloads, but I don’t have time for that right now, so I’ll just use the butcher’s cheat move to get through.
“Why is the gun not working–“
The bullet from the handgun was nothing more than a light hit from the children for me.
I ignored the angry, murderous shouts and gunfire and walked deeper into the room. As I walked, I shot and killed one member hiding behind the desk, and then another.
When I run out of ammo, I pick up the next gun and shoot, pick up the next gun and shoot.
The cleaning process is complete. I went straight into the back room.
“Wait, wait!! Why are you doing this?”
*bang*, a shot to the forehead.
After inspecting all the rooms, I eventually hit a dead end in the corridor.
There was a man slamming the door and trying to escape.
Too bad. That door was sealed with a Diamond’s thread and won’t open.
“Pedro …… you’ve switched sides…..”
He’s a well-dressed man. I think he’s in charge here.
“If you don’t happy with Natsuki’s situation then…”
The man was about to say something interesting, but I already pulled the trigger.
It seemed like He was going to reveal some important information about Natsuki and Pedro…….
Oh well. The dead cannot speak. Forget it.
I dropped the gun there and retreated. I’ve killed everything with a human weapon. Speaking of which, what about my fingerprints?
When I returned to the large room, I created a scene of deadly combat by cutting up the corpse with a proper blade, making more holes in the corpse, smashing up the desk, and leaving unnecessary bullet holes all over the room. It’s a very clever move indeed, for me at least.
–Now, the safe.
It was located in a luxurious room in the back.
The lock was an electronic lock, but it wasn’t a very strong safe. I inserted my fingernail into the crack in the door and used the
When I opened the door, I found a large amount of drugs inside.
This is the only way to trade and can’t be traced. The only problem is that it can only be used in Haven. The only currency available in the Fort is credits.
I stuffed the drugs into a large bag. I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot at the casino.
This bag was originally from the Santa costume that Natsuki had bought me.
The bag of dreams swelled to the brim with unholy cravings.
I carried it and went outside. Fifteen minutes total, cleared.
I tried to blend in as much as possible with the surroundings and returned to Natsuki and the others with a red cone hat on my head and a large sack on my shoulder like a cheerful Santa.
The two were called by me through the glass and came out of the cafe after paying the bill.
Diamond stood proudly in Yakumo’s arms.
When Yakumo holds Diamond in his arms, he looks like a little nutty kid who just got his favorite tarantula figure as a Christmas present.
What was surprising was that Yakumo was really playing with the impervious Diamond in his arms, stroking it, playing with his hair, grabbing his legs and pulling on them. Aren’t you afraid?
We entered the alley.
I borrowed another notebook from Yakumo. *scribble*
I put down the sack with a thud, and the snow that had been piling up on the street shot up. A devilish Christmas present.
“Can I open it ……?”
It sounded less like a question to me and more like a question to herself. Once she opened the bag, there was no turning back. She seemed to have such a feeling .
『With that, I will buy Natsuki and your brother. The amount should be enough. If you sell it carefully, you’ll never have to worry about money ever again.』
Natsuki still did not open the bag.
“What about that office? What happened to it?”
『destroyed. no survivors. It’s probably settled as a war between two gangs.』
“All by yourself? less than thirty minutes? Are aliens really that strong ……?””
I’m not sure if she’s ever actually even seen an alien before, let alone a Butcher.
Haha …..so that’s why you’re not that afraid of communicating with me? It’s like a small child who has no psychological barrier against insects. She doesn’t have any unnecessary preconceptions.
In her mind, I’m a cannibalistic demon that she can talk to ……some thing like that?
I waited in silence for her answer. Natsuki, on the other hand, stood there with one hand tightly gripping Yakumo’s hand.
She opened her mouth after a few moments, enough time for a light dusting of snow to fall on the large bag.
“—- promise me.”
“You can violate my body, but please don’t destroy it. No serious injuries or permanent damage. I won’t be able to take care of Yakumo.”
“and don’t touch him”
“and I don’t want that money.”
I just get it for you…….
“Instead, when this is all over, I want you to give us a ………… future.”
I couldn’t believe my ears and nodded my head.
She stared at me and said.
“If I sell these things, I’ll be killed someday. Instead, I want a more meaningful future, one that offers me a decent living, one that offers me a home outside the Fort …… for example, in the inner city. I just want to live quietly with Yakumo in a safe place. I don’t care if we are poor. I’m ready for that kind of life.”
Geez, that’s a lot.
I am the Butcher, and when I return home, I will have a kingdom of insects, and Titania will be there. She is in a tense situation with both aliens and humans.
There is no way I can give her the decent future she wants.
“Gevaudan has taken away all our place, our future in 88. And if you want to fuck me on top all of that, you’re going to have to come up with some sort of compensation …… You’re a professional, aren’t you?”
Nuh-uh, she’s right.
I think about it silently.
Thinking is exhausting. Only a human can arrange a place for a human.
All right, Abigail.
It’s Abigail turn now. She’s the only person I know on the human side.
I made a decision to put all the trouble on her. I nodded vigorously.
『All right. I will prepare a new future for Natsuki and Yakumo.』
Natsuki quickly held out her hand to me.
“And of course, you have to take care of our living, right? Food, clothing, shelter, and no living on the streets. Also, you must provide Yakumo with painting tools. I’ll write a contract for you. I studied a bit and know a few things about that. I’ll need to prepare the document properly. Put your thumbprint on it. And–“
…… Hah. Well, that was a really expensive purchase.
I reached out and took her hand in mine as she suddenly began to make her demands in a very bold and shameless manner.
Natsuki and I stared at each other in silence.
A lover contract has been completed. I hope it was a good deal.
Suddenly, Yakumo walked up to me and placed the Diamond on top of my handshake with Natsuki. He looked up and gave a small huff, looking somewhat proud of himself.
I don’t know what the real meaning of the act is, and Diamond was glancing around in confusion.
Only Natsuki was gently patting Yakumo’s head as if she understood.
Butcher, tarantula, match girl and a mute boy in a dimly lit, snowy alley. There was some chaotic harmony.
Next, I need to find a place to lie low.
