I Got Reincarnated And Mistaken As A Genius? - Chapter 76.2
To Anctartica [Part 2]
– Yurya’s POV –
(Chernobog member) Captain, do you really think we’ll have to deal with monsters like Arakawa says?
While I was getting my suit ready, one of my subordinates asked me that with a very serious expression.
(Yurya) You mean those zombies they mentioned? Hmm… Normally I would just laugh it off, but these people fought against these ghoul things in G-88. In any case, we should be ready for the worst.
(Chernobog member) I see. Still, will this plan really stop a highly contagious outbreak in a laboratory? This is a military base we’re talking about.
Instead of answering, I used Anton’s lighter to lit up a cigarette. I wonder if it will. The title sounds like a joke, but the plan is so refined that you wouldn’t improve it even if you rewrote it a hundred times. There are even clear instructions for completely unexpected situations.
(Yurya) This will be a tough fight.
(Chernobog member) So it seems. Maybe that’s why he had Colonel Claire on standby.
(Yurya) Who knows. In the worst case, the X-55 will be sent to the ice land with an amount of explosives surpassing the power of the Peacemaker. Although Arakawa doesn’t really want that. Apparently there’s something he wants to ask Professor Sandra.
(Chernobog member) I don’t think she’s gonna give out an answer so easily.
(Yurya) A way to go back to his original world… No, he probably figured out how to do that already. Must be something to do with his lover.
(Chernobog member) Alice Alford? That damned professor… If you’re gonna tinker with life you could at least do it with a soldier or an artificial intelligence.
(Yurya) Remember to not kill her by any means, at least until Arakawa has his answer. And if you’re going to do it, make sure Alice isn’t watching. That girl is way too kind.
When I met Alice at Hakone base she wasn’t scared of us. She wasn’t even surprised, unlike Arakawa. She simply bowed and said “Thank you for protecting Kouki-kun”.
She then walked her fingers through my metal reinforced face and said “Does it not hurt?”. I told her she didn’t have to worry about it. She even offered us painkillers, but those kinds of things don’t work on us.
(Chernobog member) I see. That girl is too kindhearted.
Joseph, who appeared out of nowhere, started laughing after hearing that. He’s probably remembering that same scene. I remember thinking Alice’s actions were beautiful. Most humans would hate it, but she was trying so hard to help us with a smile on her face. You would think someone like her would be scared in times of war, but she seemed so strong.
(Yurya) That’s right. That’s why we have to protect her. It is true that we’re fighting along with Arakawa, but Alice Alford is different. Don’t forget that.
(Chernobog member) Understood! Well then, word goes that Arakawa is here already.
The Type-0 suit walks in sight over by the gate. I stub out my cigarette with my feet before putting my full suit connecting with the datalink. I was wondering why I connected through an unusual line, but Joseph spoke out to me.
(Joseph) By the way, what happened to Anton?
(Yurya) Oh, I put him to sleep and tied him to the bed.
(Yurya) What? I gave him some sleeping pills and made sure he was tightly roped to his bed. He probably won’t wake up for the next 2 days or so.
Joseph acts as if he’s ignoring me and focuses on connecting to the datalink. Apparently Miki has given us the green light to go through the dimly lit gate. We all ready our guns and form a circle. Well, Sandra, here we go.
