At the sudden appearance of these people, Su Xiao stopped his movements. He had looked for a long time in Rize’s body, but did not find the Kagune.
He pulled his left hand out of Rize’s belly, her body was shaking, it seemed she was feeling massive pain.
If Rize was lucky enough to escape, Su Xiao will become her shadow.
[E/N: I think as in mental shadow, like from a trauma.]
A few people had suddenly appeared.
According to Su Xiao’s memory, the little girl with the bandages was the leader of the Aogiri Tree, the one-eyed king, Yoshimura Eto.
Yoshimura Eto’s human identity was called Takatsuki Sen, disguised as a novelist in the human society.
Takatsuki Sen’s strength was unquestionable, although she was not the strongest of the SSS ranked ghouls, she was not one to be underestimated.
The few people around Takatsuki Sen were Tatara and Noroi, both SS-rank, and Kirishima Ayato, an S-rank.
Tatara was wearing a red mask and a white trench coat, the mask covered the lower half of his face to hide his appearance.
Noroi kept his body even more hidden, except for his hands no other part of his body was exposed.
Kirishima Ayato was also wearing a mask and was staring at Su Xiao with insightful eyes.
The goal of these four was very obvious, taking Kamishiro Rize, the same goal as Gecko.
“Set her free, or die.”
Tatara’s tone was dull. While it wasn’t vocalized like a threat, his Kagune had already appeared on his back.
The headless body of Gecko lay on the side. Although these people did not scare Su Xiao, he didn’t underestimate them.
He could defeat two S-class ghouls, his strength was proven, but there were a few ghouls here thought different. They thought that after Gecko and Kamishiro Rize fought and injuries each other, Su Xiao was took advantages of the situation to merely finish them off.
“It seems that it’s my lucky day.”
Su Xiao wiped his bloodied left hand on the Rize’s clothes and did not pay attention to her anymore.
Before he took the Kagune from Rize’s body, she mustn’t die. Otherwise, the plot may not continue and Su Xiao did not want to take this kind of risk.
This was something that was insisted upon by the reincarnation paradise.
One SSS ghoul and two SS-class ghouls, Su Xiao felt the pressure now.
As for the S-class ghoul, Kirishima Ayato, Su Xiao just ignored him.
Su Xiao was sure that he could beat the S-class ghoul. As for the SS ranked ghouls, they should be no problem either. But the strongest SSS-ranked ghoul, he wasn’t sure about fighting.
Could he kill these people in front of him? He felt he should give it a try.
Even if he could not win against them, Su Xiao could still escape.
[Dragon Flash] slanted to the ground, Su Xiao slowly walked toward the Aogiri Tree’s members.
A thought flashed in the minds of the other contractors which is Su Xiao was crazy.
While facing one of the strongest ghouls in this world, Takatsuki Sen, this guy actually wanted to fight head on? While other ghouls are present?
Many contractors no longer hesitated and started running, they didn’t dare to stay here any longer. If Su Xiao were to be defeated, they might die, and even if Su Xiao escaped, they might be in danger too.
Several ghouls from the Aogiri Tree noticed the fleeing contractors, but they just glanced at them and decided to ignore them.
“Ayato, kill him.”
Tatara had a high status in the Aogiri Tree, so he decided to order Kirishima Ayato to kill Su Xiao.
Kirishima Ayato was a rebellious teenager, although he did not refute the order, he still snorted and felt somewhat unhappy.
“Human, I am in a good mood today, so run before I change my mind.”
Although several ghouls had speculated that Su Xiao’s strength was quite high, they did not care too much about him.
The main reason for that was because Su Xiao did not have a Quinque in his hand, but only a ‘normal’ long sword.
Quinque were the main weapon of the CCG against ghouls, manufactured by CCG’s R&D-center, the raw material they were made from was the Kagune of ghouls.
Su Xiao did not speak and steadily walked toward them. He did not care about his enemy’s contempt. This was also an advantage.
“Shit, since you are looking for death, then I will finish you off myself.”
The rebellious Kirishima Ayato’s Kagune appeared, he had an irregularly shaped wing on his left back. This wing was his Kagune, an Ukaku.
The specialty of Ukaku Kagune was speed. Most of them had the ability of long-range attacks, but there were also big defects to them, that being their lack of durability.
If they couldn’t incapacitate their opponents quickly in the early stages of battle, ghouls using Ukaku would usually lose.
Although Kirishima Ayato was a bit arrogant, he was not stupid. Su Xiao was a close-ranged fighter so Kirishima Ayato wouldn’t close in on Su Xiao.
The Kagune on Kirishima Ayato’s back extended, dense, diamond-shaped blood red crystals flew toward Su Xiao.
“Swoosh, swoosh, swoosh.”
The diamond-shaped crystals produced a loud sound as they flew, proving their speed and attack power.
Su Xiao stopped moving, his dark eyes stared at the blood red crystals that were quickly nearing him.
As he focused, those fast blood-red crystals gradually slowed down. Because of his agility improvement, his dynamic vision was much better.
The long sword in his hand slashed continuously, leaving several white lines in the air.
“Ding, ding, ding.”
The crystals closing in on him were all smashed away.
Kirishima Ayato was a bit shocked, he did not expect Su Xiao to block his attack this easily.
Just at this moment, while Kirishima Ayato was stunned, Su Xiao suddenly accelerated. In just three steps he arrived in front of Kirishima Ayato.
Kirishima Ayato’s eyes shrunk, he wanted to step back subconsciously. He was already thinking about jumping back, but his feet didn’t leave the ground yet.
Was it easy to escape with Su Xiao this close? Of course not.
Su Xiao took a step forward and kicked Ayato’s calf, although it was a harder bone, he didn’t care.
The miserable sound of bones shattering was heard, and Kirishima Ayato’s calf was forcefully bent inwards, forming a V shape. The bones penetrated his flesh and muscles.
Kirishima Ayato screamed miserably, his leg was broken. He fell down backward pitifully.
Su Xiao smiled and showed his mercy by cutting Kirishima Ayato’s throat.
This was Su Xiao’s fighting style, he doesn’t fight, he kills.
[Dragon Flash] had yet to hit his throat, but Kirishima Ayato already felt the pain in his throat.
If he was going to be cut, he would definitely die.
Kirishima Ayato was full of regret, he was too savage, he did not hold any vigilance towards the unknown enemy.
Just when Kirishima Ayato was about to be executed, a thick Kagune appeared in front of Su Xiao’s sword.
The Kagune was extraordinarily strong, and had a strange mouth. This was the Kagune of Noroi.
Su Xiao’s [Dragon Flash] was not easy to block, and the Kagune of Noroi was directly carved open.
Su Xiao continued to put strength in his swing, but he felt as if he was hitting a rubber tire, he wasn’t doing much damage.
He activated Azure Steel Shadow and light blue energy entered the wound of Noroi’s Kagune. Noroi snorted and immediately put away his Kagune.
Su Xiao knew some of the details about Noroi. This guy was very strong, his body was the same as a Kagune, which made him hard to kill.
Kirishima Ayato, who had barely escaped the fate of being killed, was gasping heavily. When Su Xiao swung his sword, he had felt his imminent death.
From this moment onwards, the ghouls didn’t dare underestimate Su Xiao anymore. Tatara and the others stepped forward.
