“The CCG that you’re loyal to is not a human organization. Aogiri tree fights for freedom and breaks the distorted rules of this world.”
Takatsuki Sen’s eyes were full of anger. It seemed that she held a deep hatred towards CCG. She stared at Su Xiao, wanting to witness his expression as the things he believed in showed themselves to be lies.
Takatsuki Sen was disappointed though, as Su Xiao accepted these facts calmly.
“I was wondering why CCG executives always issued these moronic orders, there were always more casualties among Investigators than there needed to be.”
Su Xiao had already understood the general situation of CCG. In general, CCG was not fighting for mankind. It was an organization controlled by ghouls, the highest rank a human could reach in CCG was Special Class Investigator, it was impossible for them to go further.
Of course, there had been the occasional Investigators who discovered these secrets, but they were all ‘killed in action’.
CCG was controlling the number of Investigators and ghouls in the following way.
The Investigators were responsible for controlling the number of ghouls and used Quinque to kill ghouls in small amounts at a time.
The ghouls that were hidden among humans automatically controlled the numbers of humans, they only needed to eat as normal.
Under the interference of CCG, the two had reached a balance, ghouls had enough food to eat, and humans would not go extinct.
After Aogiri tree formed and messed up the situation, the balance was destroyed, so CCG’s executives ordered the destruction of the Aogiri tree.
The lie that hot weapons were ineffective against ghouls had already been ingrained into the people, but because of this, CCG could only send Investigators to deal with Aogiri tree.
“I have a question. Do any other forces except CCG fights against you?”
Su Xiao was asking Takatsuki Sen.
“Of course, Investigators are the easiest to deal with. I am not afraid of Investigators. What really threatens us are those people who are well trained in the use of hot weapons.”
Takatsuki Sen opened a bandage at her lower abdomen. On her flat, white belly, several coin-sized scars could be seen. The scars were already very faded, and could only be discovered by careful observation.
“This was from a pretty dangerous situation. I was surrounded by several human snipers, if I did not get support from Noroi in time, I would have died.”
Takatsuki Sen pressed her hands on her lower abdomen.
CCG had formed their current power after being led by the Washuu family for several generations.
Ghouls lived in the darkness, while humans lived in the sunlight, but the humans were actually raised as cattle by the CCG higher ups.
The Washuu clan was a family of ghouls, they were also members of the organization ‘V’ which Arima Kisho told him about. This organization was extremely powerful.
“Remember the ‘Owl’ you fought with before? That was my father, and he is just a street sweeper of V, a killer who gets rid of dissidents.”
When Takatsuki Sen mentioned that her father was Yoshimura Kuzen, her tone full of resentment.
“I understand. You told me a lot, but what does it have to do with you cooperating?”
Su Xiao looked at the two. Even if CCG is not pro-human, Arima Kisho was a human, there was no way he would cooperate with Takatsuki Sen, unless…
“Of course it matters, because I am not human.”
Arima Kisho left Su Xiao speechless, the most powerful Investigator of CCG admitted that he was not a human, just like that.
“What do you mean?”
“I’m half-human and half-ghoul.”
“You are… a One-Eyed?”
Su Xiao had never seen Arima Kisho using Kagune, and his eyes also had their normal colors.
“I’m not one-eyed, I am a semi-human. There are two kinds of half-human half-ghouls.
The more common ones are semi-humans, like me. As for the One-Eyed, they are called semi-ghouls, which are very rare. At present, as far as I know0 only Takatsuki Sen is one.”
Su Xiao looked at Takatsuki Sen.
“I didn’t know that you are such a rare creature.”
Takatsuki Sen’s expression became grim, she clearly got mad.
“The so-called semi-humans, although semi-humans have strong physical qualities, they also have great defects, their lives are very short.
As for me, when I was twenty years old, my hair began to turn white. Even if I am lucky, I can only survive for another three to four years.”
Su Xiao finally understood how Arima Kisho’s physical abilities surpassed ordinary people.
“And because of that, your right eye…”
“Glaucoma, my eyesight is already blurry. It’s better if I’m wearing glasses, but compared with my right eye, the physical exhaustion is more serious.”
There were basically no holes or obvious lies in Arima Kisho’s and Takatsuki Sen’s story, but Su Xiao still hadn’t understood one thing. If this matter was not cleared up, he would immediately retreat.
“Arima. Since you are a ghoul, how do you pass the Rc cells detection devices? Even if you are a semi-human, the Rc cells concentration in your body should not be low.”
Not only Arima Kisho, if all the members of the Washuu clan were ghouls, how could they pass the Rc cells detection devices?
Takatsuki Sen said:
“There is a backdoor in those scanners. The ghouls in V will not be detected by them. Not only Arima, I, too, won’t be detected by them.”
Su Xiao suddenly remembered that Takatsuki Sen, disguised as a writer, had visited a CCG branch to interview Shinohara Yukinori and Juzo Suzuya in the original plot.
So the Washuu family may have done something to the Rc cells detectors. After all, it had been invented by CCG.
“I have cooperated with Takatsuki Sen for the past 13 years, and now, I am going to do something. But this can’t be done with only the two of us. That’s why I want to invite you to join us.”
There was a clue in the original work, hinting at a cooperation between Arima Kisho and Takatsuki Sen. The two had fought against each other, and although the battle was fierce, there were no signs that they were seriously trying to kill each other.
After Takatsuki Sen ate her father and successfully escaped, she said something, ‘that guy is really cruel.’
The meaning of this sentence was obvious, the two were acting.
However, while Arima Kisho was acting, he cut off the arm of Takatsuki Sen’s Kakuja shell, and Takatsuki Sen was so angry that she smashed Arima Kisho’s S+ rank Quinque, ‘IXA’.
Many signs indicated that the two had cooperated with each other, the strongest Investigator of CCG and the ‘king’ of all ghouls.
“I can’t find any loopholes in what you said, but why did you start cooperating 13 years ago?”
The words of Arima Kisho and Takatsuki Sen were only from their perspectives. Although those words were clear, seemed reasonable and there were no loopholes, he wasn’t convinced of how they just started to cooperate 13 years ago.
“Because, I was the king before Takatsuki Sen. I was the ‘king’ in the previous generation.”
Arima Kisho revealed big news again.
“I have the strength of a ‘king’, but I am not a ghoul. Takatsuki Sen is a ghoul, but she does not have the strength of a ‘king’. Neither of us is complete enough, so we cooperated to find and cultivate the next generation, a complete king of ghouls.”
Things got interesting now.
“A complete king? Interesting… If I’m right, the king you cultivated is dead.”
“Yes, you killed him.”
Takatsuki Sen glared at Su Xiao, she was very angry.
“Why do we ask him to cooperate with us, he destroyed our plan.”
“Because he is strong enough, and he’s not a member of V, nor a member of the clowns, nor even a ghoul.”
Arima Kisho looked directly at Su Xiao.
“I have told you everything. Will you cooperate with us?”
Su Xiao pondered for a while. He had just heard too many secrets. Now, if he didn’t agree to cooperate with these two, they would definitely kill him.
Takatsuki Sen was already harmed, but Arima Kisho would be very difficult to deal with. This guy was very strong at any distance, and he had his Quinque ‘IXA’ to defend.
“I am interested, tell me what you are planning to do.”
