“It’s so weird to see ghouls dressed like this.”
Yuna whispered, it seemed like she had never seen these ghouls before.
“Are ghouls like this considered rare in the 24th district?”
Su Xiao asked.
“They should be. I explored the 24th district for a half year, and this is the first time I see this kind of dress sense.”
Yuna was quite surprised to see these ghouls.
“Special Class Investigator Arima, you’ve been exploring the 24th district for longer than that. Have you seen this kind of ghoul before?”
Arima Kisho did not answer Yuna’s question, but just walked out from the corner.
Vaguely, Su Xiao could feel that Arima Kisho probably knew something.
When he first met Arima Kisho, Su Xiao had a strange feeling that this person seemed unhuman. Only ghouls could possess such a powerful body.
However, this was only Su Xiao’s guess. He had seen with his own eyes that Arima Kisho ate normal food and then stayed with him for a long time without noticing any abnormalities.
Judging from his behavior, Arima Kisho could not be a ghoul.
His body had the strength of a ghoul, but his behavior wasn’t like one at all.
While Su Xiao was lost in thought, Arima Kisho had already stepped out from behind the corner and drawn his Quinque ‘Narukami’.
‘Narukami’ was an S+ rated Quinque with three forms.
The first form was cannon shaped and provided ranged attacks.
The second form was a pincer-type that could launch a remote-controlled radio ball.
The third form was a sword which was very strong and suitable for close ranged fighting.
Right now, Arima Kisho was using the sword type.
“Take one ghoul each, we must resolve this as soon as possible.”
Arima Kisho looked at Su Xiao, his meaning was obvious.
Arima Kisho’s current actions confused Su Xiao. The two ghouls were not too strong, so he should be able to kill them by himself with ease.
Did Arima Kisho want to try to test his strength? That was not likely, the strength of these ghouls could not meet the standards where fighting them would be suitable as a test.
After entering the 24th district, Su Xiao had many questions. There should be some secrets waiting to be found down here, and Arima Kisho probably knew about some.
But he and Arima Kisho were not familiar with each other, so he would need to explore them by himself.
Su Xiao drew Dragon Flash and stood on Arima Kisho’s side.
The two of them were behind the two ghouls, who were rushing to eat and did not notice the Investigators.
Arima Kisho extended three fingers and started counting down.
After Arima Kisho took the last finger down, the two rushed to the two ghouls at the same time.
On the way to the assault, Su Xiao found that Arima Kisho was very fast, almost as fast as him.
This caused Su Xiao to be even more skeptical about Arima Kisho being a human. His agility was at 13 points, how could an average human of this world reach 13 points of agility?
After rushing over, Su Xiao and Arima Kisho arrived behind their respective targets at the same time.
By now, the two ghouls had noticed them.
A bright light along with the cry of a sword being swung and the ghoul’s head flew away.
Fast and accurate, with just one strike Su Xiao killed his target.
Looking up, there was a headless body in front of Arima Kisho.
In the distance, Yuna was staring at the two people, stunned. She already knew about the strength of Arima Kisho, but she didn’t think that Su Xiao was also this strong.
“Oh, how come I’m the weakest now?”
Yuna was not very happy, but she couldn’t do anything about it.
After Su Xiao killed the ghoul, the Reincarnation Paradises gave a notification.
[You killed a resident of ‘Diakman’.]
[CCG contribution increased by 46 points. ‘Diakman tribe’ reputation value decreased by -92 points. Since ‘Diakman tribe’ reputation exceeds -50, members of the ‘Diakman tribe’ will actively attack you.]
After receiving the notification of the Reincarnation Paradise, Su Xiao was even more confused.
What was this ‘Diakman tribe’, there was no such thing in the story.
Arima Kisho cut open the ghoul’s back and took out it’s Kakuhou.
“Their Kakuhou are very precious. If you want status, you can turn them over to the information department in 24th district.”
Arima Kisho opened his bag and took out a bottle of water, washed the blood off of the Kakuhou and stowed it in his backpack.
Su Xiao took this to heart and took the Kakuhou of the ghoul he killed. After touching the Kakuhou, another notification of the Reincarnation Paradise appeared.
[You got Kakuhou (type 1). Can be used to exchange for 40 CCG contribution points.]
Whether it was killing the primitive ghouls or taking out the their Kakuhou, he could get a lot of CCG contribution points from them.
The contribution points obtained by killing these 0primitive ghouls was ten times higher than killing regular ghouls.
The reason for this was still unclear to Su Xiao. Questions appeared one after another, and the 24th district became even more mysterious.
Just as the three Investigators continued to move deeper, a pair of red eyes stared at the three from the distance with hatred, it was a ghoul standing about 100 meters away, at the end of their current passage.
Arima Kisho showed a rare expression, he actually seemed to be worried.
The ghoul in the distance also looked like a primitive person. After seeing the bodies of the two ghouls at lying besides them, he made two strange sounds.
The sound of the primitive ghoul was short and sharp, and should reach pretty far.
Arima Kisho changed the form of Narukami into a different one.
A golden ball of electricity was shot and almost instantly hit the ghoul.
After being hit by the electric ball, the ghoul twitched and fell to the ground, a smell of scorched flesh spreading. The ghoul had died.
Arima Kisho narrowed his eyes, wearing an ugly expression on his face.
“Prepare to fight. Yuna, come behind me.”
Arima Kisho pressed on the suitcase he carried with him and his other Quinque appeared.
The Quinque ‘IXA’, also S+ rated and could also be changed into a variety of forms. It was a weapon usable for both attack and defense.
“Where is the enemy coming from?”
Su Xiao looked serious. Although he did not perceive the enemy yet, Arima Kisho’s weird actions alerted him.
Arima Kisho had not even finished before Su Xiao felt a slight vibration of the ground.
It felt like there were thousands of horses running wildly from both sides of the tunnel, and dust was shaken off of the roof.
“Woo, woo, woo.”
That strange sound rang again.
Ghouls rushed at them from both directions, the ways out were blocked.
These ghouls were all dressed like the previous primitive ghouls, a grass skirt and a teeth necklace were almost standard apparel for them, while some of the ghouls had weird tattoos on their faces.
Once he looked carefully, he noticed that the pattern looked like a bloated fish.
Their bare feet stomped on the ground, raising the dust in their wake, as the primitive ghouls rushed forward.
Su Xiao snorted, he estimated there to be at least three hundred primitive ghouls surrounding them.
“Although we haven’t fought together before, we’ll have to cooperate. Otherwise, we will all die here.”
Su Xiao looked at Arima Kisho, and Arima Kisho seriously nodded to Su Xiao.
“Let’s cooperate. You are responsible for the left side, I will take care of the right side. Don’t let yourself get surrounded.”
In battle, it was easy to form close friendships, especially when fighting for one’s life.
“Then, then what should I do?”
Yuna helplessly asked, her tone bitter.
“Support us whenever possible.”
Su Xiao held Dragon Flash tightly as he prepared himself to face off against the enemy.
“Believe in me.”
Although Su Xiao was only a First Class Investigator, one level lower than Yuna, positions didn’t always indicate strength, which was the most important.
A primitive ghoul, that looked like he might be the leader, gave a short scream. It picked up a long tree root which had a few bird feathers stuck on its end.
After this strange scream, those ghouls rushed Su Xiao like crazy beasts.
