Chapter 149


The smell of disinfectant filled the air, stinging the noses of anyone smelling it .


Noah and Rentaro sat on the bench with their eyes on one of the doors along this hallway .


That\'s the door to a surgery room in this hospital .


The red light with characters "Surgery ongoing" on it lit up, telling everyone that door is meant to stayed shut .


Rentaro and Noah sat there without talking . Naturally, it\'s not because Noah avoided conversations . Rather, it\'s because Rentaro\'s current state made conversations very hard to carry on .


Noah helplessly shook his head when he saw Rentaro who is sweating profusely from nervousness .


"Rentaro, calm down, alright?"


"Nn . "


Rentaro nodded but his distant look and sweating forehead suggested otherwise .


"I know that . "


Rentaro said, however, he clasped his hands together tightly which looked like he was just giving Noah lip service .


"No matter how anxious you are, it will not help her situation . "


Noah advised .


"The doctor also said the current medical service of Tokyo Area is so high level this operation cannot possibly fail, the risk is negligible so can you stop being a nervous Nelly?"


"Yeah, you\'re right . "


Rentaro sighed .


"I just can\'t help it . "


"I guess you have a point . "


Noah nodded with a troubled look .


"Right, how about you find a topic to talk about?"


"Yeah?"


Rentaro said .


"Thank you . "


"Hmm?"


Noah didn\'t know where this came from .


"What\'s with you?"


"Kisara-san would have never gone through with this if you didn\'t interrupt . "


Rentaro\'s eyes flashed with thoughts, he voiced the ideas in his head .


"Actually, I am starting to think her kidney problem goes beyond affecting her physical health, to some extent, I think it\'s affecting her mental health . "


"Mental disturbance?"


Noah urged him to go on .


"What is going on with you?"


Rentaro stopped for a second, he started explaining after this brief pause .


"Didn\'t you notice it? Whenever she talks about the Tendo Clan, isn\'t her reaction too extreme?"


"You mean that\'s abnormal?"


Noah tried to recall Kisara\'s reaction .


"Sure, but isn\'t that because she\'s so obsessed with ending the Tendo Clan?"


"It would have been fine if that was the case . "


Rentaro bitterly laughed .


"A friend of mine told me that isn\'t normal . For one, her entire mood changes completely . She thinks that Kisara\'s hatred got enhanced by the suffering she got from her kidney problems . It\'s like she can see her parents telling her to avenge them at all cost . "


Noah also felt a bit confused when Rentaro placed it like this .


He can sense her going off the rails whenever she goes on and on about how she wanted to destroy the Tendo clan .


Like a vengeful spirit returning from hell, Noah frowned whenever he saw her acting like that .


Indeed, Rentaro might be right to call this a mental affliction .


"Kisara-san probably recognizes this so she didn\'t want to do the transplant procedure, right?"


Rentaro sighed repeatedly .


"Without those hallucinations, she\'s afraid she will forget her desire for revenge . She is probably relying on this health problem to continuously remember her vengeance through pain and hallucinations . "


Noah nodded and he loosened his expression .


"If so, you must be really happy now, right?"


"That\'s why I said thank you . "


Rentaro laughed .


"Honestly, I don\'t want to see her dirtying her hands with revenge or curse her own clan like that . It makes me very uncomfortable whenever she\'s like that . "


Noah shared this sentiment .


Noah, however, is neutral in regards to her vengeance .


If it\'s Noah, once somebody harms his family, he will definitely want revenge .


Now, he might differ in the method through which he executes his own revenge .


At least, Noah doesn\'t think he\'s someone who would stop at nothing to get payback .


Kisara exhibits a rather dangerous trait of reckless abandon when it comes to revenge .


Noah is uncomfortable with her revenge not because of her motivation but because of her attitude .


If this transplant can solve that, then all the better .


Beep


The [Ongoing Surgery] light dimmed down as the doors opened .


A few doctors in scrubs came out . They can\'t see their faces but they can see the surgery went fine judging by their relaxed eyes .


Rentaro sighed in relief .


Kisara\'s operation went without a hitch .


"Doctor!"


Rentaro caught one of the doctors and he asked him .


"How did it go?"


"Relax, the operation was successful . "


The leading surgeon told him .


"Since she\'s still under anasthetic, I recommend coming back after tonight . She will also be placed under medical care so we can make sure she\'s healthy for discharge . "


"I understand . "


Noah and the surgeon shook hands .


"Thank you, doctor . "


The doctor bade them farewell and they exited the hallway .


Rentaro and Noah exchanged smiles before they entered the surgical room .


Tokyo Area 1, Holy Residence . . .


The base for national defense opened up .


Seitenshi entered the room with Kikunojou greeting her followed by other high-ranking officials .


Seitenshi gestured for everyone to sit down . Then, she looked at Kikunojou with a grim expression .


"What happened?"


"Yes . "


Kikunojou nodded .


"At 2130 today, Monolith no . 32 experienced a Gastrea infestation as the troops stationed there were attacked by an unknown number of Gastrea monsters . "


Seitenshi balled her hands into fists .


Gastreas appearing near the Monolith?


That should have been impossible .


Excluding Stage 5 Gastrea, weaker monsters should have stayed clear of the obelisk .


Kikunojou said nothing . He displayed the screen behind him .


"This was the last photo sent to us by a soldier there before he expired . "


Seitenshi looked at the screen .


On it, she can see a blurry photo taken in low-light setting .


Darker than the night itself, he saw a long-necked Gastrea attaching itself to that Monolith .


Seitenshi recalled something ominous .


"This Gastrea, I think I have seen it somewhere before . . . "


Seitenshi obtained her memories from her mental files as she immediately gasped in shock, covering her mouth, she voiced her disbelief .


"Stage 4 Gastrea, Aldebaran?!"


The room immediately went into a turmoil .


"Aldebaran?"


"The Gastrea that can produce varanium-corrupting fluid?"


Seitenshi\'s hair stood on ends as she rubbed her cold hands together .


Why did Aldebaran appear here?


Why did it attack Monolith 32?


Seitenshi couldn\'t find an answer for her questions .


However, she can confirm one thing . Tokyo Area is in big trouble .
