Holistic Fantasy - Chapter 153[Updated at: 2021-04-03 23:00:52]
In the plaza of Fairy Tail, Noah stood with Enju, Kayo, and tina by his side, he was addressing the people here .
Near them was a pile of packages with timer or tightly wrapped packages with suspicious contents . There were at least 600 or so packages stacked there .
Noah who is quite adept at controlling his own emotion, Kayo who is known for being level-headed, Tina who is usually easy-going, and Tina who is usually laidback, without an exception, they were all frowning hard .
Soon, more arrived with packages and they stacked the packages on the designated pile with looks of disgust and fury .
"Guild master, we found 20 more of these!"
Tina gasped .
"In total, there\'s a754 of these that were placed?"
Enju winced in fear .
"If these all went off, Fairy Tail, Fairy Tail will be . . . "
"Fairy Tail will be blown to high heavens . . . "
Kayo said with a rarely-seen angry tone .
"We found 754 bombs!"
Yeah, that\'s right, they were busy finding and defusing bombs .
These things packed a punch if they went off .
Fairy Tail members worked together to locate these bombs which were buried around Fairy Tail\'s exterior area .
Kayo\'s hypothesis isn\'t too far from the truth . If all these bombs went off, Fairy Tail would have to be rebuilt from the rubbles .
"Those bastards! I didn\'t think they would do something like this!"
The members denounce the actions of the vile perpetrators who sought Fairy Tail\'s fiery end . Even Enju, Kayo, and Tina felt outraged by the actions others have brought upon them .
Noah clenched his fists hard as his eyes went as cold as the arctic pole .
There\'s no shortage of lunatics in this world .
With a threat that can wipe out the entire Tokyo Region, the rationality holding the lunatics from going mad were broken by their fear of the unknown and the fear of death . This is their way of dealing with reality .
With the chance of entering the bunkers "taken away" by the cursed children, this was the result .
That wasn\'t the scariest part .
It\'s what these lunatics could do when they are completely unbounded by sense and reason .
They would do anything to increase the chance of survival .
For instance, they wanted to reduce the number of people alive who are eligible to enter the bunker .
By killing others, they wanted to increase their chances of being chosen as one of the 30% population that gets to hide in the bunkers .
There were also murders, robberies, and rampant gambling that were targeted at the plane tickets leaving the Tokyo Area .
This happened only half a day since a reporter broke the news of the crumbling Monolith 32 .
In just a few minutes, all the tickets leaving Tokyo Area were bought up .
To buy the ticket, people did crazy things .
It\'s not hard to imagine getting knocked out while on the streets just so the robbers can frisk you for airplane tickets .
Without a doubt, crazy people buried these bombs in the hopes that a poor cursed child will step on it or get caught in the explosion .
Noah saw this coming .
Noah trusted his premonitions . He knew people were going to do desperate and unthinkable things just to get in the bunkers . The discrimination from the Robbed Generation would not stop at a less-than peaceful resolution .
Noah\'s gut feeling turned out to be correct .
He was right 754 times .
The unsightly residents of Tokyo Area actually went so far as to lay down mines and bombs for Cursed Children .
Noah inhaled deeply, trying his hardest to pacify the storm within his heart . All traces of mercy and emotions were gone as he looked in a certain direction .
"Unhand me! Do you know who I am?!"
A snake-looking glasses guy with a lanky figure struggled there .
Noah knew the guy much to his disapproval .
"I am the captain in charge of security at the Holy Residence!"
The guy roared .
"You dirty civil officers, how dare you handle me like this! You\'re all dead, ya hear?! Dead!"
Yasuwaki Takuto, that\'s his name .
He got tied up and he was placed in front of the explosive stack . Behind him, there were 30+ individuals who were acting as his conspirators .
The prisoners were stared at by the Fairy Tail members . Their eyes were either cold or hot with disgust and anger . Takuto\'s ego couldn\'t handle this demeaning treatment and he continued shrieking .
Noah slowly stepped towards Takuto .
Takuto stopped shouting and he looked at Noah with terrified eyes .
"Wh-what are you doing?!"
Noah said nothing as he made his way over . Takuto remembered how Noah taught him a physical lesson last time, he squirmed in fear .
"Wait! Wait! Stay away! Don\'t come over here!"
Noah landed a kick on Takuto\'s chest .
Takuto barfed up blood as he flew like a soccer ball, bouncing against the ground as he crashed .
Then, he followed up with another kick to his chest .
Takuto yelped in anguish .
Nobody felt a shred of pity for Takuto\'s treatment . They watched with cold indifference .
Noah interrogated Yasuwaki, with his foot firmly placed on his chest .
"Who ordered you to install the bombs here!"
Cursed Children made up around 5% of the 30% chosen to enter the bunkers .
To hog the 5%, unscrupulous individuals tried to kill the cursed children here to clear up the quota for themselves .
Although Yasuwaki Takuto got fired, he should have been able to obtain a plane ticket out of Tokyo Area with relative ease .
His appearance here is either personal vendetta or somebody ordered him to do this .
How would a civilian be able to get his hands on 754 military-grade explosives?
"G-gargh . . . "
Takuto wanted to say something but the pain coursing through him prevented him from doing so .
Takuto got kicked back to his cohorts . Noah left them and he headed for the exit .
"We are heading to the Holy Residence!"
