After Su Xiao paid 800 paradise coins, there was one more skill in his skill section.
The new skill was a visual skill. Unlike his other skills, the new skill was written in light gray, probably because it’s a temporary one.
Basic detection (temporary).
Skill level: Lv.2.
Conditions of use: 10 points of Mana.
Skill effect: When observing any biological creature, you can see their data. Accuracy depending on the difference in strength between the creature and the user.
Tip: Data accuracy increases by 5% for each level.
Tip: Skill cooldown: 10 minutes.
From the introduction, [basic detection] was not bad at all, but it was not clear just what information would be detected.
Suzuya Juzo walked into the alley and looked in confusion at Su Xiao.
Seeing Suzuya Juzo, Su Xiao frowned and used [basic detection].
[10 points of Mana have been consumed. Basic detection is activated.]
Name: Suzuya Juzo.
Rank 3 Investigator.
Skill 1: Masochist (passive): Becomes very excited after suffering pain, able to ignore large amounts of pain.
Skill 2, Sadist (passive): When showing his crazy side, enemy may be deterred. Damage increases by 8%.
All the information about Suzuya Juzo was displayed in front of Su Xiao. As Suzuya Juzo was weaker than him, the information was pretty comprehensive.
[Basic detection] appeared to be quite a good ability, but unfortunately, it was only a temporary skill, and as such would disappear after leaving the current world.
Su Xiao had decided that once he returned to the Reincarnation Paradise, he absolutely had to get a piece of equipment or skill to detect the abilities of others.
“Mr. Byakuya, where are we going?”
Suzuya Juzo walked around Su Xiao, as if he was not willing to stand still even for a single moment.
Su Xiao stood in place and was thinking. The appearance of this little hamster meant that other contractors had begun taking action.
This confused him somewhat. He thought that his progress in completing the main task was already pretty fast. Were those contractors in the ghoul’s factions faster than him?
But that should be unlikely. If the contractors in the ghoul’s camp are really that strong, the balance mechanism of the Reincarnation Paradise shouldn’t have activated.
The reason why Su Xiao wasn’t fully alert of the hamster at the beginning was because of this reason too. So maybe the person who monitored him was not a contractor on the ghoul’s side in the first place?
The Reincarnation Paradise was full of dangers.
Since the contractor who monitored him did not show up, and the thing monitoring him was also killed, he should be able to relax a bit.
But even so, the enemy was still hidden, and since he was already close to completing the main task (2), the enemy would not stay idle forever.
“Suzuya Juzo, let’s go back to the office.”
Su Xiao decided to return to the CCG branch for now. Suzuya Juzo was different from Mado Akira. This white-haired kid had some strength.
If hostile contractors were to appear, Suzuya Juzo could at least delay them for a while. If the contractors were not very strong, Suzuya Juzo could maybe even kill one or two of them.
The main task could not be paused, so he could not stop completing the task just because there was a contractor monitoring him.
If there was danger, he would to whatever necessary to get rid of it, but never escape. This was Su Xiao’s style.
In the lobby of the CCG branch, two rows of Investigators wearing black suits stood in front of Su Xiao, who was just about to conclude the briefing.
“…Things are roughly like this. At nine o’clock tonight, we will gather here.”
Concluding the briefing, Si Xiao went to the logistics department.
Once Su Xiao left, the investigators in the lobby started talking.
Those CCG Investigators did not know the specifics of the plan, Su Xiao only told them the route they needed to block.
No one knew for sure that no one in this CCG branch was spying for the ghouls, so it was better to be careful.
After scheduling the plan for that night, Su Xiao returned to his assigned bedroom on the upper level of the building.
He was confident that the plan to clear the ghouls at the auction house would go smoothly.
It was only a few hours till the operation would start, so he had to rest a bit.
At nine o’clock that night, the CCG branch was still brightly lit and many CCG vehicles and personnel were gathered at the gate of the branch. The CCG members were all fully armed and ready to depart.
Su Xiao walked out of the building and Mado Akira got up and greeted him.
“Byakuya, the staff is assembled and ready to go.”
Mado Akira was slightly nervous, as this was her first time participating in this type of mission.
Su Xiao prompted all personnel to enter the cars and before entering one himself, the sound of doors being shut echoed one after another, until, with a dull engine sound, Su Xiao led the team of nearly 100 people to begin the operation.
Just with the authority of a Rank 1 Investigator, it was impossible to mobilize this many people. This was only possible due to the special approval of Shinohara Yukinori.
As for why Shinohara Yukinori allowed this, it was allowed only because he was strong.
Moreover, clearing out the ghouls in the entire 14th district held no small temptation to Shinohara Yukinori.
The team arrived near the auction house after a 20 minutes long drive. CCG members quickly got off the cars and before the drivers hid the vehicles quickly, then they gradually surrounded the auction house.
These people were experienced in killing ghouls, they were completely silent in the dark night.
Out of the Bluetooth headset on Su Xiao’s ear came Suzuya Juzo’s voice.
“What is it?”
“I have arrived at the location. There are no abnormalities for the time being. Are we going to rush in?”
Suzuya Juzo’s strange laughter came from the earphones.
Su Xiao switched channels and contacted Mado Akira.
“No abnormalities, we are well concealed.”
Su Xiao continued to contact other squad leaders, all three exits of the auction house were monitored.
It was 9:30 in the evening, more than an hour before the auction was supposed to start. It was not yet the time to take action.
“Byakuya, here is the mask you wanted.”
A member of the CCG wearing a black battle suit handed him a mask.
When CCG was executing tasks on a large scale, it’s members all dressed like this. The heavy battle suits were proven to reduce the rates of death and injury.
After taking the mask, Su Xiao put it on and went to ahead to enter the auction house.
The main entrance of the auction house was locked, only the back door entrance was opened.
It was impossible for ghouls to hold an auction in the open. Especially so, since this was the 14th district.
Arriving at the back door of the auction, Su Xiao took out a small spray can and sprayed his clothes.
This was a kind of spray that masked his scent, so that the ghouls could not detect his human identity.
Most of the ghouls were sensitive to smell, if Su Xiao were to enter the auction without that, he would be discovered immediately.
His plan to clear the auction house was simple. First, he alone would enter the auction house. Once the auction starts, he would give the order to block the exits, followed a killing spree.
Su Xiao just entered via the back door of the auction house, as a big ghoul stopped him.
“Human blood T3.ST.”
After Su Xiao said this weird code phrase, the big ghoul released him.
“Don’t cause trouble, or I will kill you.”
Su Xiao did not care about the threat of the big man. He was here to kill ghouls today.
Walking into the auction house, he noticed it was different from during the daytime, the appearance of the auction had changed greatly.
Before the auction of the ghouls even began, rock music was played on the auction floor, and at the corner of the ceiling, a red light was installed.
It was a dim environment with glaring lights and deafening music.
These ghouls were really daring, were they not afraid to be discovered? Well, they had been found out before the auction even began.
Under the colorful lights and the heavy music, some women were overexcited, they even took off their shirts while shaking their naked upper bodies.
Crazy, hysterical, this is how these ghouls felt to Su Xiao.
These ghouls were living to the fullest, as if they didn’t know whether they would live to see the next day.
