“Yes, well, a deep well to the ground. These ‘primitive ghouls’ came from there. What we have to do is expel these ‘primitive ghouls’ back to the well.”
After listening to the description of Arima Kisho, the expression on Su Xiao’s face seemed to say, ‘Are you kidding me? ’
There were at least thousands of ‘primitive ghouls’ in the underground city. Don’t talk about fighting with these ghouls. Now, as long as their position was exposed, the two will absolutely die.
“Arima Kisho, I wish you success.”
Su Xiao put on Arima Kisho’s shoulder and turned to leave. The decisive attitude made Arima Kisho somewhat shocked.
“Do you want to defy the orders of the general directorate?”
Arima Kisho talked slowly with no threat as if he was testing something.
“I am an Investigator, but I will not execute the mission which may cause me to die.”
Su Xiao’s answer made Arima Kisho eyes close, some different brilliance appeared in his eyes.
“You will be dismissed if you defy the order made by the general directorate, but the situation is different now. If we do not complete this mission, we will die when we return to the ground.”
Su Xiao’s footsteps stopped and looked at Arima Kisho. Arima Kisho was somewhat abnormal today, but he did not detect where was the difference. It was just an intuition.
“What do you mean?”
“Do you think the ghouls here were normal? Most Investigators will never see the primitive ghouls.
If I’m right, your mission is to reinforce me. The general directorate will arrange one or two special Investigators for you. Is it Kuroiwa Iwao? Anura Kiyoko? Or maybe Marude Itsuki, others were not possible.”
Arima Kisho was in the deep area of the 24th district for a long period. He had a few calls with Su Xiao. Later, because there was no signal underground, he lost contact with the outside. He surprisingly guessed the special Investigator sent by the general directorate to the 24th district. Su Xiao never believed it.
“What do you want to say?”
“Complete this mission, you have to, it has to be completed. If you can return to the ground alive, pretend that nothing has happened. Remember, even if you are unwilling, you must obey falsely.”
Su Xiao stared at Arima Kisho, who was thinking about whether Arima Kisho was credible.
In the original novel, Arima Kisho kept listening to everything that Washuu Matsuri said, it seemed that Arima Kisho was like a puppet.
But now it seemed that Arima Kisho will never be the ‘gun’ in others’ hands. He should know a lot about the secrets of CCG. If he is not obedient, he will be killed.
“Answer me a question, if I return to the ground now, who will be sent by Washuu Matsuri to kill me?”
Arima Kisho breathed deeply, he was judging Su Xiao previously.
The simple two words revealed too much information.
“What if we two defy him together?”
Su Xiao did not know whether Arima Kisho was credible or not. He was testing.
“If we cooperate, there is hope for us to survive, but after that, we must face the overwhelming pursuit. Those enemies that you will be unexpected.”
Silence, a long silence.
In addition to the occasional low-roaring by ‘primitive ghouls’, there was dead silence.
“It’s courting death that expelling these ghouls by only us, we have to look for other methods.”
The attitude that Arima Kisho just showed was almost a kind of concealed entanglement. After Su Xiao said, ‘If we cooperate’, then Arima Kisho did not show anger or loyalty to CCG. Instead, he clearly answered Su Xiao’s question.
Neither of them knew whether each other was credible, they could only test each other inadvertently.
There was a point that Arima Kisho just mentioned. Su Xiao believed that it was still more credible, that was, if he does not complete the order by the general directorate, he will be in danger if he returns to the ground.
Su Xiao knew more and more about CCG, and his strength was outstanding. CCG may want to train him into a second ‘Arima Kisho’, an ‘obedient gun’.
Arima Kisho’s attitude towards CCG was false compliance, this guy may be planning something.
Su Xiao sighed, he only watched the two seasons of Tokyo Ghoul, he did not read the subsequent Manga, most of the information he understood of the world was from some sentences in the forum.
This made him secretly decide that after he returned to the real world, he must make up for it.
It was not for entertainment, but for intelligence.
Arima Kisho took the Quinque box, he rarely smiled, seemed to figure out something.
“We need a plan, and my idea is like this….”
Arima Kisho described his plan in detail. It was very simple, that was to use fresh flesh and blood as a bait to attract the primitive ghouls around.
The crisis of trust was temporarily ended, new problems arose, where could they find fresh flesh and blood.
“Anyways, we can leave here first, we can’t do anything here.”
Su Xiao looked at primitive ghouls around, only a few, as long as they are cautious, they will not be discovered.
“What have you been doing here before?”
Su Xiao found that Arima Kisho was lying on the roof.
“Cough, dehydration and hunger, I am a little exhausted, temporarily resting here.
let’s leave this first, let’s look for the ‘bait’. ”
Arima Kisho was a bit embarrassed, after all, it was a shame to starve to death.
Cautiously avoiding the primitive ghouls, both of them were extraordinary. If it comes to the ability of hiding, Su Xiao was better than Arima Kisho.
Jumping on the roof of the steel building, Su Xiao arrived at the entrance of the underground city shortly after.
Su Xiao was making a gesture to ask Juzo Suzuya and Mado Akira standby, after that Su Xiao and Arima Kisho entered the channel.
As a bait by fresh, it had to look for in the underground passage.
After entering the channel, Su Xiao was relieved. It seemed to turn on the silent mode, they had to whisper previously softly.
“Arima Kisho, are you familiar with the route? Won’t we get lost?”
Arima Kisho shook his head.
“No, this kind of great change happened in the central city, the ghouls in the main control room have all escaped, and the primitive ghouls will not manipulate the machinery in the main control room.”
It seemed that Arima Kisho knew a lot about the underground city in the 24th district.
Understanding Su Xiao’s doubts, Arima Kisho continued to say.
“The central city is this underground city. It is the largest gathering place of ghouls in Tokyo. Most of the ghouls live here, just like humans live on the ground.
The main control room is somewhat complicated to explain. In short, the main control room is one of the most important buildings in the central city. It can control the meat wall of the 24th district and let the meat walls change constantly. Because of this, we will get lost in the underground passage.”
Arima Kisho revealed a secret which was the 24th district in Tokyo was a city where ghouls live.
Human lived on the ground in Tokyo, and they lived in the underground of Tokyo. It seemed that a certain balance had been reached. Only CCG could maintain this order.
In Su Xiao’s view, this order was somewhat distorted. Human and ghouls were deadly enemies and could not coexist. CCG surprisingly allowed the two sides to coexist together. Why?
Su Xiao could now confirm one thing, that was, CCG’s existence was not to protect human, or the facts were far more terrible than imaginations.
