Holistic Fantasy - Chapter 118[Updated at: 2021-01-13 15:54:04]
The following hour, Noah stayed in the holy palace as they poured over the security detail for that conference . They planned routes, vehicles, extraction, bounties, and time limits, as well as ironing out other minor details, Seitenshi presided over the discussion .
Originally, security detail should have been left to Yasuwaki . The reward should also have been under the secretary’s jurisdiction .
But, Seitenshi said Noah is her own personnel and since he’s hired as a professional bodyguard, she left the security detail to him while personally negotiating with Noah in regards to pay .
Noah didn’t particularly mind who he talked with .
It’s good that he didn’t have to talk with some annoying bodyguard team of the holy palace or negotiate with some number-crunching secretary under Seitenshi . He’s happy because this made his schedule rather vacant .
He finished up on the security arrangement for the conference and he handed his proposal to Seitenshi . He then left her room only to sigh outside .
He walked along the corridor while scratching his cheek . He continued sighing .
“Saitake Sougen, huh?”
He’s tired just thinking about the two phone calls he had with the man . He slightly regretted taking this job .
His impression of Saitake is very poor, almost as poor as his assessment of Kikunojou .
Noah absolutely hated the man, he personified the traits Noah didn’t want to see in anyone .
Saitake’s decade long rivalry with Kikunojou meant that he would be going up against someone as sly and underhanded as the old man . Naturally, Noah is very annoyed by this .
“Should I quit?”
Noah stopped and his eyes gleamed when he detected someone nearby .
“Yeah, you should, I agree with that very much . ”
The intruder didn’t notice that Noah stopped before he actually appeared . The guy stuck a hard object against the back of Noah’s head .
“Noah Dreyar, I think it’s best if you turn this job down, for your own good . ”
A bunch of other individuals appeared to surround Noah when the guy announced that ultimatum .
They are all in formal white suits . They had guns that were already unholstered . They branched out and covered Noah with their sights .
It’s the same security team that Seitenshi introduced to Noah .
He glanced around and he revealed a look of disdain . He shrugged like those are just peashooters in their hands .
“What are you doing? Are you thinking of threatening Captain Yasuwaki?”
The one pointing his gun at the back of his head was, without a doubt, Yasuwaki Takuto .
Although Noah couldn’t see his face, he could guess that this glasses guy had a very sadistic look on his face, like a lizard that is about to devour its target, gleefully grinning like a smug villain .
“Shut your mouth!”
He pressed the barrel of the gun against Noah’s head in a harder manner, emphasizing himself with a low growl .
“I am the glorious captain of Seitenshi-sama’s bodyguard team . You’re just the leader who adopted a bunch of little monsters . Don’t talk to me like we are on the same level!”
The other guards giggled and sneered at him . If only they sensed that Noah’s eyes had already turned frosty .
“The hero who defeated Scorpio?”
Yasuwaki looked like he had been holding it in, he kept teasing him like he has already won .
“If I have the bullet that can bring Scorpio down, I would also be able to obtain the title of Scorpio slayer . You’re just someone who got lucky, how unsightly . ”
Yasuwaki started going off like he can’t deal with his own hatred .
“Lord Tendo assigned Seitenshi to me, I should be the only one who needs to stand by Seitenshi-sama’s side . Why are you getting all this special treatment from Seitenshi-sama? Why did she allow you entrance into her chambers?”
Noah parroted .
“So that was her room?”
“It’s ‘Seitenshi-sama’ to you, scum!”
Yasuwaki yelled at him .
“Don’t call her so intimately, that beautiful premier of a country is mine . Only I can obtain her and become the ruler of the Tokyo Area!”
Noah said in an unconcerned manner .
“I more or less saw this coming but you truly had an ax to grind with me, over something this?”
Noah’s cool as a cucumber attitude rubbed him the wrong way and he started trembling from anger .
“Stop pretending like you’re calm, why don’t you?!”
He raised the gun and he whipped the gun at Noah’s head, he didn’t hold back at all .
“You should be shivering in fear!”
He swung his gun only to hit air .
Noah disappeared from sight, no, he traveled so fast he looked like he teleported behind Yasuwaki .
He stuck his leg out and between Yasuwaki’s feet, tripping him easily with a simple move .
Yasuwaki fell because he didn’t see this coming at all . He fell face-first and judging by the dull thud, his nose probably suffered enormous damage, enough to make him moan in pain anyway .
The other guards didn’t think Noah would strike back . When they reacted, they only managed to adjust their aims . In the next instant, looks of shock appeared on their faces .
Their guns are gone! How? When?!
“Hey . ”
Noah continued .
“Looking for these?”
He stretched his arms out and their confiscated guns fell to the floor in a cacophony of deafening metallic sounds .
The guards all retreated in panic .
“When did you?”
Holding his inflamed nose, Yasuwaki stood up, or at least he tried to stand up when Noah stomped down on him .
Being pounded right back onto the floor, that tremendous force coming from his back forced all the air in his lung to come out through his mouth . It’s like somebody dropped a heavy boulder on him and agony filled his mind .
The guards knew they needed to cover Yasuwaki but a cold look from Noah was all it took to shut them down .
The other guards all froze up, they forgot how to move for a second there .
“Hmph . ”
Noah laughed at them . he looked down at Yasuwaki who is struggling under his foot .
He reminded her .
“What’s this? The future ruler of the Tokyo Area actually got stomped down by a lucky bastard? Should I be touched that you offered your broad strong back for me to stand on?”
