It was night now.
In the 14th district, at the center of the West Street district.
This place was notorious in Tokyo, whenever night fell, ghouls would gather here.
The ghouls that gathered here were all thugs. Their purpose was very simple. They were killing and cannibalizing each other. For that, they stood out among many other ghouls.
The status between ghouls was measured with nothing but strength.
It was around 8:30 in the evening, shadows flashed from time to time on both sides of the street. Most of the ghouls had eagerly begun to gather.
A man and a woman were walking along the street. Unlike those sneaky ghouls, the two didn’t think about hiding.
“Byakuya, is this really not a problem?”
Mado Akira held her suitcase, she wearing a black uniform and glanced around nervously.
“Ha~.” Su Xiao yawned, “No problem, I will act by the ‘plan’.”
Unlike the nervous Mado Akira, Su Xiao looked relaxed.
“Byakuya, I have a question.”
“Where is your Quinque? We may have to fight with ghouls later…”
Su Xiao did not have a Quinque, he preferred to use [Dragon Flash].
“I don’t need a Quinque.”
When Mado Akira heard Su Xiao’s words, she stopped and looked at Su Xiao in confusion.
“You Don’t need a Quinque?”
The voice of Mado Akira was obviously higher, she even seemed to be doubting her life up to this point.
“Come on, Akira, you can just stand here.”
Su Xiao patted Mado Akira’s shoulder, then took a few steps forward and jumped on top of a one-story building, disappearing into the night.
The Quinque in Mado Akira’s hands almost fell to the ground, she vaguely guessed Su Xiao’s plan now.
She was the bait.
As a rank 2 Investigator, Mado Akira could at most kill stronger B rank ghouls. If she were to encounter A ranked ghouls, she may not be able to win.
She felt as if she had been stripped down and thrown into the ocean by Su Xiao.
When Mado Akira just wanted to turn around and run, several pairs of blood red eyes appeared in the darkness around her.
One, two, three… there were seven ghouls.
‘I’m gonna die. They’re going to kill me.’
Mado Akira pressed the button on the handle of the suitcase, and her Quinque appeared. It was a weapon that combined a whip and a dagger, called Amatsu.
“A CCG Investigator!”
“How can an Investigator appear here?”
“It’s okay, let’s just kill her. It’s not the time for mutual eating yet. I have never eaten an Investigator before.”
She didn’t know why there were no fights amongst these ghouls, it was surprising there was a certain time for them to start killing each other.
It seemed that the cannibalization in the West Street district was definitely not a spontaneous event.
There seemed to be a power that maintained the place. Otherwise, these ghouls would never wait until nine before killing each other.
This should be some sort of selection method. After standing out among the many ghouls, the victors could join a certain force.
“Come on, this woman isn’t strong, she won’t be dangerous.”
More and more ghouls gathered, there were more than a dozen ghouls now.
Mado Akira’s heart had already become cold, she had no chance to escape now.
“This seems to have worked well.”
Su Xiao’s voice echoed from the roof beside the street.
When Mado Akira heard Su Xiao’s voice, she was really relieved, but she was still unsure. Could one new CCG Investigator really handle this many ghouls? She heard he was strong but this…
“Who are you?”
“Are you an Investigator?”
The dozen ghouls surrounding Mado Akira watched Su Xiao vigilantly.
Su Xiao gave them a feeling different from Mado Akira, it was the feeling of facing your natural enemy.
Su Xiao had already drawn [Dragon Flash], jumped from a rooftop and landed smoothly.
“Fourteen ghouls. That won’t take five minutes.”
Su Xiao walked slowly toward the ghouls, his footsteps became faster and faster, until he turned into a blur.
Two of them were smart, they knew something was wrong immediately, turned around and ran. The remaining twelve ghouls were facing Su Xiao.
Ten Rinkaku and Bikaku were rushing at Su Xiao.
At this moment, Su Xiao was almost surrounded by Kagune.
Seeing this scene, Mado Akira was shocked, she brandished her Quinque rushed at an A ranked ghoul.
This was already the best Mado Akira could do. Even if it was only one A ranked ghoul, she might not be able to cope with it.
Dark red Kagune surrounded Su Xiao, then a bright sword-slash flashed in the night.
Su Xiao activated [Azure Steel Shadow], 2 Mana points were consumed per minute.
The ten Kagune were instantly cut apart, turned into red mist and dissipated into thin air.
The ghouls that had their Kagune sliced off screamed, some looked at Su Xiao with fear.
Su Xiao quickly rushed towards an A ranked ghoul, his [Dragon Flash] left a light blueish line in the air.
A head flew through the sky.
He faced the ghoul head-on, but in seconds it fell to Su Xiao’s sword, it was a crisp and clean kill.
Su Xiao’s rapid steps did not stop, he rushed to the next closest ghoul.
Perhaps because the first ghoul died too quick, this ghoul was actually stunned and didn’t move.
After a second, the ghoul turned to run.
Su Xiao’s black eyes seemed to be shining.
It was undoubtedly the most stupid behavior to try to escape a fight by turning your back at the enemy, it was no different from just giving away your life.
[Dragon Flash] cut through the heart of the running ghoul. Su Xiao grasped the handle with one hand and the ghoul with the other. His strength attribute of 13 points made it easy for him to pick up the ghoul and throw it at another runner.
With a wet splat the next ghoul was hit by the thrown body.
When the ghoul wanted to get up, he saw the glint of a sleek sword.
First, he heard a humming sound, then he fell.
The last memory of this ghoul was being hit by a headless body that was still squirting blood, and seeing a man standing in the moonlight with a sharp sword, like a god of death.
Of the twelve ghouls, except for the one who was fighting by Mado Akira, there were still eight remaining.
In less than 20 seconds from the start of the fight, only eight of the eleven ghouls facing him were left.
The remaining eight ghouls were now only thinking about escaping, they needed to get away from this god of death.
“This is impossible, how can such a strong human appear in this area, why didn’t the organization do anything?”
After muttering this, the ghoul turned around and ran.
Su Xiao’s agility attribute was at 13 points, the same as his strength attribute. In this world, with its relatively low-level inhabitants, he was considered quite strong.
Su Xiao was not strong because of his attributes, which were higher than ordinary people, but because of his Sword and fighting skills.
Of course, the abilities of The Shadow of the Law could not be ignored either.
There was only one combat skill in The Shadow of the Law at this time, as he had only received the inheritance a short time ago. The power of this profession had not been completely unveiled yet.
Su Xiao ran on the street and killed one ghoul after another.
Painful screams and cries if pleading echoed around the streets.
The ghouls were not stupid, they all ran in different directions.
In the end, from the eight remaining ghouls, Su Xiao managed to kill six, two lucky ghouls escaped.
At this time, Mado Akira was still struggling with the A-class ghoul. The A ranked ghoul was close to tears, while he was not afraid of Mado Akira, he was afraid of the man that seemed to be a god of death.
Mado Akira was fully focused on the fight, as the A-level ghoul gave her a lot of pressure. She didn’t have time to check her surroundings.
She was still too unexperienced, checking the surroundings was absolutely necessary in any battle. Otherwise, it was very likely to be attacked from behind.
“Please, let me go.”
Suddenly, ghoul started begging for mercy, which stunned Mado Akira. The ghoul had the upper hand, why did he start begging for mercy?
Only now did Mado Akira notice the situation around.
Su Xiao was sitting on the stacked bodies of a few ghouls, smoking a cigarette. The sword in his hand was still dripping with blood.
The pretty eyes of Mado Akira were wide open with shock. She had not managed to kill this single ghoul, yet this guy already killed the remaining ghouls.
“You, ghoul, if you dare run, I will gut you like a fish.”
Su Xiao looked at the last remaining ghoul. This was good, he had gotten new bait. After all, it was not really good practice to use his own subordinate as bait.
