Friday 10/16/20 22:42.
After all the preparations were done, the four of them were positioned on top of the middle building, looking intently at their surroundings.
-Do you think this will work? (Marie)
-We don't have more time, if this will work or not, we'll find out now. (Akemi)
-I know... but was that really necessary? (Marie)
-We can not do anything. Ryu said that this way he would be more attracted to falling into the trap. (Souta)
Around Ryusaki was scattered a pile of meat on tables with large signs written "free food".
-Hehehehe... he really doesn't seem to be afraid of this situation. (Marie)
-Well for now let's review the plan. First of all, I called the police closest to that town and explained the situation. As they couldn't ignore the request because I made them, they said they would be here in less than 2 and a half hours. (Akemi)
-And to think that they never came even though I called so many times... (Marie)
-Akemi is really a very important person in the legal world, there was no way they could ignore her. (Souta)
-Well, back to the subject, I called around 9 am, so the estimate is that they will arrive soon. Now for our part, Ryu is waiting downstairs while we're up here. As the building has only two floors it is easy for us to hit the target as we are not too far from it, however I only brought a long range and precision weapon with me, this weapon is the one in my hands right now, a Rifle b12 pcp custom, for Ryu's safety I loaded her with tranquilizer darts that take down even lions, a human would easily take down. (Akemi)
-What do we do if Ryu is attacked? (Kevin)
-I left to explain this part, because here it would be easier for you to understand. (Akemi)
In fact, I avoided talking to them right away, so that there was no risk of our plan being ruined, unfortunately, you can't be too careful when the enemy is close to you. (Akemi)
-That was something I also brought with me. (Akemi)
Akemi lifts the blanket that was hiding something underneath so as not to be seen and underneath was a black net with weight at the ends.
-You really have everything you need... (Marie)
-Unlike some, she really takes her job seriously. (Souta)
-This net is made with a very strong and heavy wire, so one person won't be enough to throw it on top of the monster. When he appears Ryu will run to the alley beside our building, as he passes you will throw the net down, if the monster keeps following Ryu he will be captured without much difficulty. (Akemi)
-I see, so we can't fail. Ryu's life is in danger. (Marie)
-Besides, in case something happens to him, I warned him to run to that house. (Akemi)
-I remember you asked about an abandoned house, but I didn't understand why you asked for it. (Marie)
-It's a security point, in it Ryu will be safe from the monster. (Akemi)
-Even if you say that, the monster was not able to destroy an entire closet as if it was Styrofoam? (Marie)
-Hmm! Don't worry about it, that place will definitely take down our enemy if he dares to enter. (Akemi)
-Hey Akemi! Ryu is asking something with his hands. (Souta)
-What is he asking? (Akemi)
Ryu starts making weird gestures.
-What the hell was this supposed to be? It's not like anyone here would understand. (Souta)
-"Some... something... of... abnormal?" I think he's asking how things are going up here. (Marie)
-SHE UNDERSTOOD!! (Souta)
Souta sighs and starts waving his arm indicating that nothing has happened. Ryusaki nods with a thumbs up showing that he understood what Souta said.
-Frankly, when will this monster appear? (Souta)
-This is even a little strange... (Akemi)
-What are you talking about? (Kevin)
-Because the monster only attacks tourists, if it were to be effective even the natives who are inside the revolution should be attacked. (Akemi)
-You say that, but the girl in my mansion who died was a native. (Akemi)
-But I didn't think the monster was planning to attack. I mean you know, he never attacked anybody all these years. (Akemi)
Kevin looks with a scared look at Akemi who for him was delirious.
-And if, in fact, the monster is not a rational person, but a real monster, who was taught early on who he should protect and who he should attack... (Akemi)
Behind them, a black figure was facing them. He had climbed into the building while Akemi was talking, without them noticing.
-Damn it! (Akemi)
-Why is he here? (Souta)
The monster advances and Akemi doesn't waste time she carries the weapon and fires her first dart, the monster notices the attack and dodges it.
-What was this? Did something happen up there? (Ryusaki)
From the building he was looking at, where the four were, the black creature jumps out with something in his hands.
-RYU!!! RUN!!! HE CATCHES MARIE'S FATHER! (Souta)
The person the creature had taken was the old man, Marie's father.
-AH AHHH OUUHHH! HELP! (Kevin)
Damn the monster is coming towards me. (Ryusaki)
-I won't allow it! (Akemi)
Akemi shoots with the python (pistol) in the direction of the monster, he easily dodges and jumps on top of Ryusaki, however the shot took the monster out of its favorable trajectory a little and made Ryusaki manage to escape from his hands. He then runs towards the alley.
-Get the net! (Akemi)
Souta, Marie and Akemi raise the net and get into position. Ryusaki enters the tunnel being followed by the monster, however before entering the monster stops following him and changes its direction.
-Which? Why did he stop just in time? (Marie)
-Looks like the time has finally come. (Souta)
-Yes. The plan was successful. (Akemi)
-Huh? You... what are you talking about? (Marie)
Souta and Akemi look at Marie with cold eyes.
-Ahhh. Ahhh. Little to go, just a little more. (Ryusaki)
Ryusaki manages to make it to the house, as soon as he enters he locks the door and sits on the floor in fatigue.
-I achieved. Huuff. Huuff. Thank God. (Ryusaki)
Ryusaki makes the sign of the cross and kisses his hand (a gesture that indicates he was thanking God).
-Why did I do this? I am atheist. (Ryusaki)
A noise of footsteps begins to echo over the room Ryusaki was in, someone was approaching him. Through the door of the room, from behind the darkness, the figure of a person appears.
-Looks like you finally revealed yourself. (Ryusaki)
-Yoooo. Stupid child. (Kevin)
-I see you always dreamed of being an actor. (Ryusaki)
-Hahahaahahaha. Do you think I would have done well in this business? (Kevin)
-Seeing you up close I see why this didn't work. (Ryusaki)
-You really have a very sharp tongue, let's see how long this goes on. (Kevin)
From behind Kevin comes the figure of the beast, she was drooling nonstop, wanting to roll up Ryusaki's flesh until there was nothing left.
-It's a beautiful companion that you have there, but it's better to be careful, even he seems small in a room as big as that. (Ryusaki)
-This room space is really quite spacious, but it won't be a problem, you won't be able to run away from it forever. But tell me something young, different from the others, it seems you just found out I was behind it, tell me how did you find out? (Kevin)
-It was bad, I don't really like to reveal my tricks to the enemy, especially before the gong rings. (Ryusaki)
-Is this really necessary? In a moment you'll be dead, while I won't even recognize the parts of your body that are strewn across the floor, you know, he really has no manners. (Kevin)
-I was dying to know this, but looking closely and the way you said it, it seems that this really isn't a disguise. (Ryusaki)
-Yaaaaa. This little one here is really like that, but don't call him a monster, I don't like people talking like that with my brother. (Kevin)
Ryusaki was in shock at that moment, the black beast he saw in front of him was Kevin's sister.
-Yes, a great brother who agreed to sacrifice his human form for the good of our village. (Kevin)
-Sacrificed?... you couldn't be saying... (Ryusaki)
-Yaaaa. We modified your body, using drugs, to evolve into this form. (Kevin)
-You're sick. Do this with your own brother. (Ryusakio)
-Hahahahahaahah, don't worry about it, he knows it was necessary for a greater good. (Kevin)
-This story of "we"... who was the other person. (Ryusaki)
-When I was a teenager I discovered the existence of a young scientist, who wanted something never seen before, I ended up meeting him and I was presented with his dream, he was really crazy you know, but thanks to him I could get the power needed to expel all these s***** that entered my city. I offered my newborn brother as a guinea pig for his experiments, the dear doctor injected him with high doses of drug and this made him have an accelerated growth that even his body was not able to follow, causing his limbs to atrophy and his melanin deregulated. He told me the experiment was a complete failure. Failure!? FAILURE!! WHERE DID HE SEE IT WAS A COMPLETE FAILURE!? WATCH! THE EXPERIMENT WAS A SUCCESS. LOOK AT MY BROTHER, HE IS SO POWERFUL AND STRONG. WITH HIM BY MY SIDE NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO STOP ME. HHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHHA!! (Kevin)
-You're sick. (Ryusaki)
-So you never wanted peace between the natives with the tourists. (Ryusaki)
-Hehehe. Yes, that was just a whim I did. Throughout the time I was in power, I observed the population's secret discounting of the system I installed. I couldn't stand there at the top anymore, I needed to get out and put another one in my place. (Kevin)
-So you indicated someone of extreme trust of yours, who you knew would never upset you. (Ryusaki)
-Exactly. This was one of my disciples, a little dog who followed everything I said. This puppy of mine would rule the people over the light, while I controlled the people in the dark. I founded the revolutionary group and it attracts all the people discontented with the government to it, so I could watch and control these people very closely, without anyone noticing. (Kevin)
-So you were really behind everything. (Ryusaki)
-Hahahahaahaahhaha. Yaaaaaaa. You took too long to act and now your end has come. (Kevin)
The monster rushes at Ryusaki with the intention of killing him.
Akemi and Souta throw the heavy net over the monster that was running too fast to change direction and dodge.
-WHICH?! Why are you here?! (Kevin)
-It seems that not everything went as you planned. (Souta)
-It makes no sense. Hey brother get out of there and kill them! (Kevin)
The monster thrashed, but he couldn't get away from the net, on the contrary, every time he moved more he got trapped.
-It's like I told you Kevin. (Akemi)
“-Hmm! Don't worry about it, that place will definitely take down our enemy if he dares to enter. (Akemi)"
-You were talking about me? This is impossible, as you found out, I thought only the idiot boy had found out. (Kevin)
-Yes... he discovered it himself. That's why he made this plan. (Souta)
-What? Impossible! This plan was made by the girl and that was before he found out. (Kevin)
-Looks like you got something wrong. I didn't find that out when I walked into the house or when the monster captured you instead of someone else, I knew it was you from the moment I saw you. (Ryusaki)
When Akemi stayed inside the room watching Kevin and Marie, while Souta and Ryusaki talked.
“-Hey Ryu! Tell me, do you know who's the culprit behind all this? (Souta)
-It's... it's clearer than ever. (Ryusaki)
-So, it was really Marie. (Souta)
-Not really. (Ryuskai)
-What, then who was it? (Ryusaki)
-Her father. That's dangerous to say, so let's pretend we don't distrust him at all. Don't worry, the plan will go without a hitch, I'll make a small modification, I'll lure him into a closed house, where he'll think the only people inside will be me and him, but meanwhile you and Akemi will be of readiness if the situation tightens for me. I'm going to make him admit what he's done and then we can arrest him. (Ryusaki)"
-All according to what Ryusaki had said. You fell into the trap like a mouse in a mousetrap. (Souta)
-How... where did I go wrong... why did you distrust me? (Kevin)
-Actually I still had some doubts at the beginning that were not answered, I was suspicious of Marie, after all she prepared a place and we were attacked by the monster in it, even in the mansion it was like this, the monster did not attack Akemi because she is holding the light source, he attacked it because it matched the description that someone gave, however when the light went out he couldn't see very well and killed a similar girl who was wearing the same dress instead of having killed Akemi. Soon only one person could have provided all this information to the monster and that person was Marie. (Ryusaki)
-Then why did you distrust me? (Kevin)
-But one thing wasn't hitting, when we went to investigate the area of the old murder there were people cleaning up all the traces left, that didn't make sense, she didn't seem to be aware of the situation, of course she could just be pretending not to know, but why would she bring us to that place knowing we could see it and distrust her. So there had to be someone else, someone else who knew everything, who had to be 100% integrated with all the information that Marie had. It was then... that you showed up and I knew right away it was you. Marie told you everything, since you were her leader and her father, so you had all the information. Also in the attack on the mansion she said that after telling you that we were there, you ordered her to take care of some business in the library, that was a lie, you just needed a distraction to be able to call your brother and describe the target he wanted. should attack. Probably she must have mentioned that Akemi looked wonderful in the black dress she prepared for her, that's why the monster went after her. (Ryusaki)
-Ryu... do you think I looked wonderful in that dress? (Akemi)
-Hi!! Do not start. (Souta)
Kevin was completely shocked by what he heard, he was read like a book.
-That's why I stopped distrusting her and knew then that it was you... Well, but it's not over yet. (Ryusaki)
-No... finished? (Kevin)
-Ehhhh! It's true that I did it so I could arrest you, but I also did it so I could free someone. (Ryusaki)
-Free a... person? (Kevin)
Kevin hears steps towards the living room, that's when his daughter appeared with tears on her face.
-Papa... tell me it's a lie. Tell them what they're talking about is a lie, because I'll trust you. JUST TELL ME THAT THEY ARE LYING TO ME AND YOU ARE TELLING THE TRUTH!! (Marie)
Kevin is silent for a moment not knowing what to say, until he starts laughing at the situation.
-Huhuhuhuha. GWAAAHAHAHAHAAHAAAHAHAHA! YAAAAAAAA. IT'S TRUE MARIE, I'VE BEEN FOOLING YOU ALL THIS TIME. ALL THIS TIME I'VE BEEN KILLING THE TOURISTS UNDER THE CLOTH, AFTER ALL I HATE THEM, I HATE THEIR WAY OF WALK, I HATE THE WAY THEY LAUGH, HATE TO HEAR THEM TALKING, HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE I HATE! I REALLY HATE THEM ALL! AHH, AHHHH, AHHHH. HUHUHU. Marie, why are you like this? You look so scared, you're not scared of your own pope, are you? (Kevin)
-But... how can you hate these people so much? MAMA WAS NOT A TOURIST ALSO! (Marie)
-Oh yeah. She really was a tourist. (Kevin)
-You told me you truly fell in love with her too, didn't you? (Marie)
-Yes... your mother was a tourist and I fell in love with her. HIS MOTHER WAS A TOURIST'S F****!! AND EVEN SO ME!! THE MAYOR OF THE TOWN!! THE ONE WHO CHARGED ALL THE PRIDE OF THE CITY!! FALL IN LOVE WITH THAT BITCH. JUST BECAUSE SHE WAS ATTRACTIVE!! I NEVER FELT SUCH ASHAMED IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!! (Kevin)
-Uffff. Wowff. That's why the pope had to make a difficult decision after you were born. Gwaaahahahahah. (Kevin)
-Ahhhhhhhhh, I still remember the face she made. (Kevin)
-Please stop!! (Marie)
-DON'T I TELL YOU THAT? THAT ON THE DAY HER MOTHER DIED THE FACE SHE MADE WAS EXTREMELY CHARMING!! (Kevin)
-Noooooo!! Shut up!! (Marie)
-I DIDN'T ASK ANYONE FOR HELP!! I MADE IT WITH MY OWN HANDS!! GWEAAAHAAHAHAHAH!! ALL THE SHAME AND ALL THAT DISGUSSION I FELT!! I KILLED HER!! WITH MY OWN HANDS!! GWEAAHAHAHAHAAH!!! (Kevin)
Marie was curled up crying at what she heard.
“-It seems that the time has finally come. (Souta)
-Yes. The plan was successful. (Akemi)
-Huh? You... what are you talking about? (Marie)
Souta and Akemi look at Marie with cold eyes.
-What are you talking about? Was the plan successful? But didn't we just fail? (Marie)
-Marie, we need to act fast, so we don't waste time, I want you to listen to me without saying anything at all. (Akemi)
-Who is behind this is your father. (Akemi)
-We know it's hard to believe, but it's most likely to be. Also, that's why the monster didn't fall for the trap, his father must have warned him and so he changed direction. (Souta)
Marie was completely shocked by the whole situation, not knowing whether to believe it or not.
-I KNOW IT'S HARD!! BUT IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH ENTER THAT HOUSE WITH US!! (Akemi)
-But isn't that the house that Ryu was going to hide... that would bring down the enemy? (Marie)
-Yes... that house is where the enemy will fall, so follow us... and see for yourself the enemy succumbing. (Akemi)"
-So... it was all true. What they were saying was true. (Marie)
Some memories run through Maria's head, memories of her child playing alongside her father. Memories where only smiles were seen.
-But my service is not over Marie. (Kevin)
-I've been avoiding this for all this time, even though you being a tourist's daughter still had native blood, so I forgive you and ignored that fact for all this time. But you didn't stop sending letters to outsiders, even though I threw them all in the trash and hoping you got the message, you didn't stop looking for outside help! I CAN NO LONGER LET THIS ERROR PASS. BECAUSE OF YOU I WAS DISCOVERED AND MY BROTHER CAPTURED, I CAN NO LONGER ALLOW YOU TO CONTINUE IN THIS WORLD. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! (Kevin)
Kevin advances towards Marie.
-STOP PAPA!! (Marie)
Kevin was getting close to Marie when he was hit in the head by a tranquilizer die, making him fall hard to the ground at the same time.
-Be quiet worm, you're too noisy. (Akemi)
So... so... cool!!! (Souta)
Akemi looks at Ryusaki and sees him staring at Marie, he looked like he was looking sorry for her, so she puts her hand on his shoulder and speaks to him.
-I think it's better to let her rest a little alone. She needs to get everything she's feeling out first. (Akemi)
-Hey Ryu!! From what Kevin had said, this guy here really is a monster. What are we going to do with it. (Souta)
-Let it. (Ryusaki)
-Ahnnnn?? You are crazy?? If we let him loose around here, more tourists will be killed by him. (Souta)
-It seems he had no interest in attacking anyone, the only people he attacked were the ones Kevin ordered. Besides... he doesn't have much time to live anymore. (Ryusaki)
-What are you talking about? (Akemi)
-Kevin told us no? How he ended up that way. Through drugs. I'm sure they're going to make him die early and judging by his breathing he doesn't have much time left. He can barely breathe properly, the drugs really affected him. (Ryusaki)
Souta and Akemi, upon hearing what Ryusaki said, began to feel a little empathy for that beast.
-This is very sad, to have been a guinea pig for an experiment, to live as a slave to your own brother and even more to die so soon despite this. (Souta)
-Yes... it's really very sad. (Ryusaki)
-I'll take care of him!! (Marie)
-Please I ask you not to arrest him. I want to take care of him and make him enjoy it, even for a little while... I want him to enjoy the rest of his life in peace, not being anyone's puppet and not being hunted by anyone!! (Marie)
-You seem quite confident, why do you want to take care of him so much? (Souta)
-We are the same, we both suffered without noticing in my father's hand, however I met incredible people, who took me out of all this suffering. I want to be to him what you were to me!! (Marie)
-Heheh!! I don't think you need have asked!! Of course we'll leave!! (Souta)
-I have nothing against it, as long as he doesn't come after me I'm in agreement. (Ryusaki)
-Hahahahaahah! Maybe we'll send him chasing you just to remember old times. (Souta)
-Do not do it, please. (Ryusaki)
-Marie, could you get my bag, I'll put the handcuffs on them to prevent them from escaping. (Akemi)
-OK!! I will get them. (Marie)
-But this is amazing, we finally managed to finish everything we came to do. (Souta)
-Yeah... no more playing ghost hunting for me. I will spend a long time not wanting to know these things. (Ryusaki)
The calm and comforting atmosphere that was in the place was suddenly broken by the sound of a bullet breaking the window glass.
Akemi ends up pushing Ryu and takes the shot in his place.
-The... Akemi... (Ryusaki)
-WHAT'S HAPPENING!! (Marie)
-Damn it!! (Ryusaki)
Ryusaki runs over to Akemi's body and realizes the shot has caught him in the shoulder.
-Souta, see me a piece of cloth so I can roll it up and stop the bleeding. (Ryusaki)
Ryusaki squeezed as hard as he could the shot site, to prevent Akemi from bleeding to death.
-Ryu... the person, must be the guy that Souta and I found spying on. (Akemi)
-Don't say anything else, for now just relax lying down, the police are almost here, they must have a doctor with them. So rest until they arrive. (Ryusaki)
The monster seeing that scene, where everyone was focused on Akemi, decides to take the opportunity. He lets go of the net and advances towards Akemi who was seriously injured. Marie notices the monster advancing on top of Ryusaki and Akemi.
-Ryuuuuu!! CAUTION!! (Marie)
The monster was getting close, when Ryusaki turns his vision to the beast. When she sees his eyes, she stops immediately. The dark eyes that Ryusaki looked at her penetrated her mind and caused more and more fear in the beast, she then lowered herself as far as she could in an act of submission and gradually moved away from Ryusaki.
-Ryuu. What will we do. We have to catch this bastard who shot him. (Souta)
-You can go, I'll be taking care of her in the meantime. (Marie)
-But what about the monster? (Souta)
-Don't worry, it looks like he won't advance on anyone here anymore. (Ryusaki)
-OK. Let's go then! (Souta)
Souta comes out ahead, Ryusaki looks at Akemi, she was looking at him, so he approaches her.
-Akemi lend me your gun I'll do the job with it. (Ryusaki)
Akemi pulls out her weapon and hands it to Ryusaki, but before he goes she gives a warning.
-You must be careful. Once you pull the trigger, you won't be able to go back anymore. (Akemi)
Upon hearing this, Ryusaki starts running looking for the sniper.
