Holistic Fantasy - Chapter 132[Updated at: 2021-01-13 15:54:10]
Tina ran out of the ruinous building . Her eyes were shaking with uncertainty .
Tina’s emotion manifested as intense confusion .
Tina wished that this was only a cruel joke laid on her by heaven .
The familiar voice calling out to her brought her back into reality .
Noah closed the distance between them in seconds .
“Did you think you can run away just like this? Tina!”
Tina continued running while biting her own lips .
It’s only a matter of time before he catches up to her .
Tina tossed three orbs .
Buzz buzz buzz
The orbs had an eye-like structure embedded in them as they flew away .
He recognized the distinct humming sound
She deployed these things during the sniping incident back then and just now .
These scouting devices appeared to be very technologically advanced, they flew on an automated basis without any apparent input from Tina . She must be controlling them somehow . These objects are probably the reason behind her insane sniping skills .
Noah is very convinced that these objects allowed her to snipe with deadly precision over a kilometer .
“So she used these objects to achieve that level of accuracy, huh?”
Noah’s question will go unanswered for now .
The three scout orbs flew towards Noah at neck-breaking speed .
Noah lifted his pistol, he wanted to gun them down when he saw timer on the orbs . With a few more ticks, the orbs exploded .
Flames and smoke shrouded Noah . The ensuing wind blew the surrounding rubble and stones away .
Tina’s haste slowed down but she charged forward nonetheless .
The game of cat-and-mouse is already over .
Like a meteor streaking across the sky, a figure clad in smoke and flames leaped over Tina .
Her vision blurred and Noah who was a bit charred from the detonation appeared in her vision .
Noah stood there with a firm look .
His look was all it took to inform Tina that she had some explaining to do and no one is going to leave until she fesses up .
Tina who is already trying hard to escape reality hysterically yelled at him .
“Get out of my way!”
Tina took out a knife as she charged at Noah .
He stood there without taking any action .
Tina frantically stabbed at Noah with her knife .
Even when the knife is coming for his head, he continued watching like it’s nothing .
In that instant, the distance between the two closed .
A knife twirled through the air as it landed somewhere in the ruins .
Tina’s hand felt numb after having the knife slapped away from her grip . It was like she tried to attack a rock, she staggered backward .
Before Tina can react, a gun was already pointed at her glabella .
Tina froze up .
With less than 5 centimeters between the barrel of the gun and her head, she was in no position to continue attacking .
Not even a cursed child can dodge a bullet fired at such a close range . This applied to conventional firearms .
Moreover, Noah was holding a modified gun that was custom-made to deal the maximum amount of damage .
This is the end of the line for her .
She slumped down after seeing a gun pointed at her, she lost all her strength . She smiled faintly with a ghastly-white expression .
“As expected, Onii-san is incredible . ”
Her sentence brought out the question in his mind . He sighed and he looked into her eyes .
“Why did you try to kill Seitenshi?”
This is the true question that would determine the relationship between them, the other questions can be left for another time .
Tina gave up, her smile was as bitter as they can get .
“Because it was my master’s order . ”
“Your master’s order?”
Noah tightened on the stock of his gun, he looked at Tina who was limp in front of him .
“Right, I never truly introduced myself to Onii-san . ”
Like a nocturnal hunter, her expression was sharp in contrast with her attitude during the day .
“I am an Owl-type initiator, a mechanized fighter, my IP ranking is 98, Tina Sprout . ”
Her introduction carried a wealth of information within .
An owl-type initiator, a hybrid mechanized soldier, IP ranking of 98 .
These told tales about her past .
Noah reckoned that this fell within estimates for someone who stood in the inhuman top 100 of the ranking .
He is not too sure about what Hybrid meant but he is very aware of the existence of mechanized soldiers, the result of cruel procedures that jammed Varanium into the human body, a gross body modification project envisioned to create soldiers that can fight against Gastrea . Kagetani is an infamous mechanical soldier .
She possessed mechanical soldier ability in addition to her powers as a cursed child .
No wonder she can attain a spot in the top 100 of the IP ranking .
This also told Noah that he might not be able to get the answer he wants .
“Onii-san looks like he understands what I am talking about . I tried to kill Seitenshi because my master told me to do it . I can’t divulge who told my master to do this because I am not aware of the material facts . I am only a tool in this affair . ”
Tina lowered her head and she continued with a hollow voice .
“Please, Onii-san, kill me . ”
The scene became silent .
Speechless, he pulled the trigger after seeing Tina’s vacant look .
The gunshot echoed throughout the sky .
