43 Final destination
Shidara Ougen was being flustered.
Rather than that, he was confused.
It’s not because his Talent User high school lost to the lowest class high school, and it’s not because the Level 4 ace that he acquired was useless. One of the reasons is because several people of some kind of organization entered…this Garden which supposed to not let any outsiders in.
However, what surprised him the most is that the man who he picked up after he lost his place from the imperial army’s research facility a few years ago and continued to show brilliant results after that, Shidara’s most trusted subordinate, the head of the Talent Development Laboratory, 「Kiryuu Yousuke」 disappeared suddenly, and at the same time, he took away all the accumulated important research results which Shidara invested enormously.
What on earth happened?
Kiryuu-kun, why did he disappear suddenly?
Why the research results we completed together disappeared entirely?
Just like that, Shidara Ougen finally realized it.
That he was fooled.
I was completely used by him.
From the start, he approached me in order to use me.
When thinking so, the hatred from his heart wells up, and he immediately drinks the water on the table.
He drank up the water all at once, and after regaining his composure……
Then, he realized that a familiar large man wearing a suit standing in front of him.
「……I told you to stop, didn’t I……」
Upon hearing the voice filled with anger and killing intent, Shidara Ougen’s body curled up in tension, and a large amount of sweats came out from all over his body.
This large man in front of him was……the incarnation of nightmare who destroyed his important lab.
And the perpetrator who beat him up into this body which requires a cane to walk.
No matter how much he investigate, he knows nothing of this man other than his name and title.
Teihen High School Principal, Kurono Kagenobu.
For Shidara, he is the symbol of fear and despair.
Since then, he has been afraid of him, and made this place where no monster can enter by improving the security. And resurrected the project which no one knows lead by the ideal person called Kiryuu. It should be. He planned that.
No, the countermeasure was supposed to be perfect. Therefore, this man couldn’t enter this place until now.
「Y-You’re……impossible……no one should be able to enter this place」
Saying that, he recalled that there are already several intruders in this floor.
He was confused to the extent that he can’t recover.
In his head, and in this situation of the facility.
He felt that everything that he built with his life, is starting to fall apart. But it hasn’t end yet. He hasn’t lose yet. That’s right, be calm. They should still be here.
By the means of Kiryuu’s technique and Shidara’s money, the 3 「Level 4」 guards are here even though they created many failures.
This Garden has very excellent combatants. The combat ability capable of even crushing this third-rated high school principal easily. I possess such power. I doesn’t know how many Talents he has, but he can’t win against them. I have no need to be afraid. He thought of that.
Despite being confused, he felt something was strange.
Why is this man here? Why is he standing here calmly?
What are those guards doing…
Thinking that, when I look at the place where the guards were…
There are the figures of the three guards fainted with foams coming out of their mouths and their limbs were cruelly bent.
A strange sound leaked from his throat.
Just like that, he reaches out the cane. That’s right. Finally, the time to use this. Now is the time. While thinking that I wouldn’t never use it, I created it and installed it. The small-sized hydrogen bombs in this underground facility and the detonator. Now is the time to use it.
I never expect my demise will be like this. It’s too regrettable. It’s too frustrating.
But……people of the army have already enter here.
I thought of changing this country……there are a lot of evidences in this facility of overturning the country’s structure.
It’s a matter of time for them to reach there. No, they might have found it already.
Escaping is also hopeless.
There’s no way of defeating this man in front of me anymore.
The last ray of hope has been cut off.
Just like that, Shidara Ougen takes the cane, and places his thumb on the hidden switch.
If I press this, everything will be over. I will wipe out my life by myself.
What a gallant end when compared to being captured and tortured by the Talent Police.
I will end my own life with my own hand. That is my, Shidara Ougen’s way of living. I will die magnificently that no one can ever do it.
In that case, it may be my win.
Thinking that, I glared at the man in front of me……and pressed the switch on the cane while smiling stiffly.
However, the switch that was supposed to sink, received my thumb without resistance.
No, as if the thing that should be there, is not there. I feel that my finger touched the air.
Did I mess up due to the tension? Thinking that, I look at my hand…
The thing that should be there, is not there.
The cane, the important cane is not in my hand.
When I see properly, the man in front of me is holding the cane.
Just like that, the man throws the cane away.
Such voice came out again.
I can’t think of anything anymore. I’m losing strength from all of my body.
I can hear several footsteps from somewhere.
Several men and women wearing the special military suits, ran towards here.
And at the middle of the Garden……
They stopped at Shidara Ougen’s favorite place.
The woman with long black hair tied behind, walks slowly towards me.
The woman, from the bundle of papers in her hand……
took out a research document with the word 「Secret」 written on it, and said this.
「Shidara Ougen. I am arresting you without warrant on suspicion of country treason. Take him away」
Just like that, the master of this facility, Shidara Ougen is restricted with handcuffs by the military people, and injected drugs into his neck.
His consciousness fell into the darkness.
