After mopping up the remaining enemies, CCG personnel gradually withdrew from Aogiri Tree’s stronghold.
Su Xiao was sitting in an ambulance, his wounds being bandaged. Although the wound in his lower abdomen was bleeding a lot, his internal organs were not hurt.
With his tenacity, this kind of injury would heal with bandages and a proper rest.
“Well, no organs were injured, just remember to take your medicine on time.”
After the nurse finished bandaging Su Xiao’s wounds, she gave him a few pill boxes.
“Being a ghoul Investigator is such a dangerous occupation. You were injured two times in less than half a month.”
The nurse looked at Su Xiao with a smile.
“Who are you?”
While she was bandaging his wounds, Su Xiao’s face gradually grew full of cold sweat. As the nurse’s delicate face felt more and more familiar, he gradually recalled some bad memories.
He had had that battle with Takatsuki Sen when he first entered this world, and after that, this nurse had bandaged his wounds.
When he thought of the strong pain back then, Su Xiao’s cheeks twitched.
Su Xiao, who had fought with Takatsuki Sen, was very reluctant to see this nurse again.
Under her sweet smile she hid a completely black heart, she was like a devil.
The way she dressed his wounds was so cruel that Su Xiao remembered it deeply.
“It seems that you remember me. Well, my patients usually don’t forget me.”
Su Xiao nodded and left the car in silence.
“Remember to take the medicine, you mustn’t stop taking it.”
Su Xiao stood stock-still, after a long moment, he quietly murmured: “Got it.”
The sound of sirens was heard, and a faint smell of blood spread in the air.
“My arm, where is my arm?”
“Hurry, this patient lost a lot of blood, prepare a blood transfusion!”
The mourning of the wounded people was endless. Although CCG won, they had still paid a hefty price.
“Doctor, can I stand up again? Answer me!”
A ghoul Investigator, whose spine was cut through, was grabbing the doctor’s arm in panic, as he couldn’t feel his lower body.
The doctor turned his head and asked the other medical staff to carry the wounded person to the car.
The ghoul Investigator was desperate, lying on the stretcher and looking up at the starry sky.
Compared to the wounded among CCG, the ghouls of Aogiri Tree were obviously much quieter, as they were all packed in body bags.
CCG’s fleet of cars brought back an endless stream of injured personnel. Su Xiao himself only returned to the division in 20th district at about one o’clock, in the middle of the night.
He had fought a lot over the night, and losing a lot of blood didn’t help against feeling tired either.
After arriving at the room Marude Itsuki had arranged for him, Su Xiao immediately went to sleep.
When he woke up, the sky was already bright.
He took a look the alarm near the bed, it was already 10 Am.
After washing himself, Su Xiao went to Marude Itsuki’s office.
“How about resting some more? I noticed you were seriously injured yesterday.”
Marude Itsuki put down the document he was reading, he already guessed Su Xiao’s intention for coming here.
After the war with Aogiri Tree ended, Su Xiao would want to return to the 24th district. He was a member of the squad zero after all.
“The wounds have been treated, and I will be fully recovered in about three days.”
Su Xiao had eaten the last [salted rice ball] last night, before fighting Kaneki Ken, so the recovery speed of his injuries was accelerated quite a lot.
Normally, his injuries would take at least half a month to recover.
“That’s good, do you want to go right now?”
“Yes, I want to go now.”
“I will arrange a car for you.”
Marude Itsuki took a phone, called someone and said a few words. A few minutes later, a young lady wearing a suit opened the door.
“Byakuya-sama, a car has been arranged for you.”
After saying goodbye to Marude Itsuki, Su Xiao took the vehicle back to the 24th district.
Soon, the car arrived in the temporary division of the 24th district, and Su Xiao got off the car and entered the building.
The temporary division still looked the same, some members of the staff were working.
Su Xiao went straight to the logistics department of the temporary division, the thin old man with small round sunglasses was lazily lying behind the window.
Su Xiao knocked on the glass of the window, and the old man who was about to fall asleep looked up.
“Huh, who…? Oh, Byakuya, is there anything you need?”
“I want to exchange something.”
The thin old man immediately became focused.
“Let me check, you are an Associate Special Class Investigator in the records. Please select the items you need.”
While the thin old man was talking, the list of redeemable items appeared in front of Su Xiao.
[Human gene strengthen liquid]
Conditions: 15000 CCG contribution points. Requirements: Associate Special Class Investigator.
[Crushing Elf (Boutique)]
Redemption conditions: 13000 CCG contribution points. Requirements: Associate Special Class Investigator.
Su Xiao chose the [human gene strengthening liquid]. After selecting it, his CCG contribution points began to drop rapidly, until finally, there was only [Associate Special Class Investigator: contribution points 4823/130000.]
The promotion to a Special Class Investigator required a whole 130,000 CCG contribution points. Su Xiao did not need the position as a Special Class Investigator, so he had chosen to just use the contribution points, to improve his combat strength as soon as possible.
Spending CCG contribution points would not cause him to get demoted. He had previously asked the Reincarnation Paradise about this, just in case.
After receiving the drug, Su Xiao held the test tube with green fluid in his hand. He noticed that the outer layer of the glass tube was inlaid with fine metal wires for reinforcement.
Su Xiao couldn’t help but smile as he was holding the [human gene strengthen liquid]. He went deep into the 24th district and even participated in the battle in the 11th district for this wonder drug.
But it was all worth it. After drinking this, his strength would improve a lot.
He stowed the strengthening fluid and quickly walked to his room.
A staff member just wanted to call for Su Xiao, but he was too late.
The staff member hesitated for a moment, but eventually decided not to bother Su Xiao.
In his room, Su Xiao locked the door and pulled the curtains shut. Although these actions might seem paranoid, the [human gene strengthening liquid] did not indicate anything about the immediate effects of consumption.
The only thing described was that it had no side-effects and would improve his attributes, as to what would happen after use, nothing was said.
Ever cautious, Su Xiao stashed Dragon Flash nearby.
Unplugging the seal of the [human gene strengthening liquid], Su Xiao sniffed carefully, noticing the fresh scent of plants.
Taking a deep breath, Su Xiao drank all the [human gene strengthening liquid] in one go.
The liquid tasted horrible, causing him to frown.
“What a disgusting taste.”
Su Xiao sat in bed, waiting for a change, but after a long time, he had yet to feel anything.
Checking his attributes, there were indeed no enhancements.
Could this item have been fake?!
As Su Xiao was pondering, a sense of warmth spread all over his body.
This warmth felt very calm as it spread. In the end, he felt as if his whole body was soaking in warm water.
His blood flow increased, and the muscles around his body began to twitch slightly.
Su Xiao clearly felt his body getting stronger, his heartbeats grow more powerful, his breathing getting smoother and smoother, and his mind seemed to clear.
The injuries he got during the battle in the 11th district were healing at a speed visible to the naked eye.
It was no wonder that the [human gene strengthening liquid] was a blue-quality medical item. The enhancements were really good, and taking it felt very pleasant too.
