The next morning, in the park next to the 20th branch office, in the shade of a tree.
Su Xiao did a one-arm hand-stand and gradually lowered himself.
“…,543, 544, 545…”
Su Xiao was doing one-handed inverted push-ups to exercise his upper body strength.
Sweat dripped down his cheeks into a small puddle of water that had appeared on the ground beneath him.
Although the Reincarnation Paradise could increase the value of his attributes, Su Xiao never slacked off with his own exercise.
When perceiving the feeling of getting stronger, most people got addicted to it.
Imagine being able to feel yourself getting noticeably stronger every day, how pleasant that would be.
“First Class Investigator Byakuya, someone is looking for you.”
A male Investigator walked up to Su Xiao.
Su Xiao put power into his arm and stretched it to heighten his body.
“Special Class Investigator Arima!”
When he said the name Arima, the Investigator showed a look of admiration.
“Arima? I understand, where is he?”
After getting the location of Arima Kisho, Su Xiao picked up his top and left the park.
Unexpectedly, Arima Kisho himself was waiting for him.
In the restaurant of the CCG’s branch office, Su Xiao was currently eating his breakfast.
In the seat opposite of Su Xiao sat a handsome man with white hair and glasses.
That was Arima Kisho, the strongest Investigator of CCG.
“So, are you my boss now?”
Su Xiao ate the last bite of his breakfast and then looked up to observe Arima Kisho.
“Yes. You are temporarily transferred to the squad zero. We are responsible for the investigation of the 24th district.”
Arima Kisho spoke with a gentle tone, looking like a god with no expression on his face at all.
Su Xiao thought for a while.
He had 12 days of free time left, although the 24th district was dangerous, it was also a good place.
Since he wanted to become stronger quickly, he needed to take risks after all, only then would he get rewarded. This was the iron law of the Reincarnation Paradise.
“When will we go?”
The first impression others had of Su Xiao was always ‘murderousness’, as implied from his having only three points of charm.
And Arima Kisho was completely expressionless, so the interactions between the two of them were very simple and clear.
Arima Kisho did not ask to test Su Xiao’s strength, he showed his power by cleaning out the 14th district.
Su Xiao followed Arima Kisho out of the CCG branch office of the 20th district, together they drove to the 24th district.
The 24th district was located at the edge of Tokyo and belonged to the suburbs.
To be exact, the 24th district was just wilderness, and the real 24th district was underground.
In the meeting room of the 20th branch office, Marude Itsuki stood at the window, looked at the car which was heading away, and sighed.
“He still left… If the Black Death could join…”
Marude Itsuki looked somewhat disappointed.
“Marude, it doesn’t matter, I may have a way.”
Shinohara Yukinori patted Marude Itsuki’s shoulder, who only looked at the vehicle that was quite far away by now.
“A way? Tell me.”
Marude Itsuki looked at Shinohara Yukinori in surprise.
Shinohara Yukinori mysteriously smiled and put his head near Marude Itsuki’s ear, and murmured something in a low voice.
“Yes, that’s it. Who’d have thought that you could think of something like this.”
Shinohara Yukinori’s face was black as he looked at Marude Itsuki, speechless.
24th district, a bulletproof CCG car was parked on wild grass.
Arima Kisho took the lead to get off the car, Su Xiao followed him.
A hole with a diameter of more than ten meters appeared in front of Su Xiao.
This was an entrance to the underground. The entrance was dark, and a vague whining sound could be heard, if a ghost was crying.
It was the sound of the wind, which indicated that there was a lot of space underground.
“Yuna, introduce the situation in the 24th district to First Class Investigator Byakuya.”
From the driver’s seat of the car, a beauty who was at the age of a typical student got out.
This beauty was named Yuna, she was about 18 or 19 years old, had a long black hair and wore a white sailor suit. Her chest was only slightly raised, and in her left and right hands she was carrying Quinque boxes.
Yuna glanced at Su Xiao and cleared her throat.
She could guess just from a glance that this was also a cold guy.
“The 24th district, we call it the underground maze. So far, we have been unable to fully explore the 24th district.
In the 24thdistrict, there are a lot of meat walls… “
Su Xiao was curious. He had only heard bits and pieces about the meat walls in the underground of the 24th district, as such he did not know their specific appearance and only knew a bit about them.
“Yes, meat walls. They are formed by Kakuhou, similar to how Quinque are made.
It is because of these meat walls that the difficulty of exploring the 24th district has risen greatly … “
Yuna began to explain the exact situation in the 24th district.
Usually, there would be more Investigators besides Arima Kisho, Su Xiao, and Yuna exploring the 24th district.
As for the other members of the squad zero, because of Su Xiao, they were all transferred away by the headquarters.
The original words of the headquarter were that they wanted to decentralize the combat power because the situation in various regions was growing unstable.
Although Yuna seemed a bit weak, she was an Associate Special Class Investigator.
“That was the general information about the 24th district. This time we’re just passing by, so I’ll give you a general introduction. We will take action this afternoon.”
The three people silently stood without moving, Su Xiao could not help but wonder, would they stand around until afternoon?
In the end, Yuna spoke up first.
“You two, are you just going to stand here?”
Arima Kisho did not speak, but directly went to the car.
Su Xiao was looking at Yuna, while Yuna was also looking at Su Xiao. The two just looked at each other.
“Let’s, head, back, to, the, temporary, branch.”
Yuna said this sentence word by word with a strange intonation.
Through their short period of contact, Su Xiao found that his initial judgment of Yuna was wrong.
This beautiful Investigator was not very cold, she was just slightly nervous and moody.
Five minutes later, the three people drove to the temporary branch office, which was a three-story villa.
This was the place where the Investigators would rest in the 24th district, though usually there were very few Investigators in the 24th district. Right now, there were only three people.
Entering the villa, Su Xiao saw some busy staff.
Except for these staff members, there were no other Investigators in the branch, which made this temporary divisions look somewhat sloppy.
“Don’t look like that. Except for the staff, there are only three Investigators, that’s us.”
Yuna changed from her previous cold attitude and became passionate.
“What’s the specific time when we’ll go explore the 24th district?”
Su Xiao looked around. The structure was very simple, the important departments were only the logistics department, and the information department.
The logistics department should provide all kinds of materials, and the information department recorded the situation in the 24th district.
“We will go at one o’clock in the afternoon. There is a restaurant inside, and over there is your residence.”
After that, Yuna’s white face suddenly came close to Su Xiao’s, and her pretty nose shook slightly.
“I smell blood, I like your smell.”
Su Xiao’s mouth twitched. This woman was a complete replica of Suzuya Juzo, no, she was even more neurotic than Suzuya Juzo.
No longer paying attention to this strange girl, Su Xiao walked over to the logistics department, then he received a notification of the Reincarnation Paradise.
[Hint: You have entered a special area, temporary division of the 24th district.]
[Hint: The temporary division of the 24th district is a hidden area. In the logistics department of the temporary branch, the CCG contribution points can be used to exchange items.]
Su Xiao was curious about what items could be exchanged.
“First Class Investigator Byakuya, welcome to the logistics department. Our items are inexpensive and useful, but not quite for free.”
A thin old man with small round sunglasses looked at Su Xiao with a smile.
Su Xiao was a bit stunned, is this really the logistics department of the CCG branch? It seemed like he entered a store.
While the thin old man talked, a list of items appeared in front of Su Xiao.
After seeing the first item on the list, Su Xiao eyes seemed to have flames burning in them.
This glorious blue light that he saw now, he saw it for the first time.
At this moment, Su Xiao felt fortunate to be able to come to the 24th district.
