- Chapter 16 - As a torture for a priest who served in the army, it's still a very nice one, like me.
We left the barricade in the examination room unchanged and went around from the doctor’s waiting room to the outside.
The two unconscious men had been left alone, which meant that if the enemy came to their aid, they would be able to gain some time.
“What is it, John?”
We headed for the main hall, alert to our surroundings.
The only goal is to neutralize the magician Marlo and make him cancel the firing.
“You’re good at torture, aren’t you, doctor?”
“As a torture for a priest who served in the army, it’s still a very nice one, like me.”
…doctor Chloe’s torture from earlier was a nice one? I can’t believe it.
“The most important thing to remember is that priests can heal or kill.
If you served in the military, it was not uncommon to torture people.”
“You’ve served in the military? You are still young.”
“It was right after I became an adult. The war ended soon after, and I wasn’t on the battlefield for a year.”
I see. So that would make you about 18 years old, Dr. Chloe.
Adult at the age of 15, one year left until the end of the war. It’s now two years since the end of the war.
“I never thought the day would come when I would get to live that experience again….”
Watching her sigh like that, I feel the weight of 18 years.
It’s about 1/28th of Sylphy’s, but life is still heavy.
And I have no memory of it.
“Anyway, is there any problem getting dressed?”
“Yes, I’m only wearing my top, so they’ll know if I get too close, but not until I do.”
In the face of the anti-imperial faction, our strategy is like this:
First, we would cover ourselves by borrowing the doctor’s personal clothing.
Both the priest’s uniform and the battle uniform were functional, so it wasn’t a disguise that completely took off.
So if you get close enough, you’ll be spotted.
But by that time, the distance is already reduced, so it’s enough.
I thought of doing a scouting mission first if possible, but we would have run out of time.
They have declared that if we are not in the large hall in 10 minutes, they will kill us without mercy.
Well, it is doubtful that those uncoordinated people will adhere to that rule, but if they are anti-imperialists, they will not use pistols. Even if they try to kill us on a caprice, it would make no difference to them that we would be at a distance by then.
“Five, four, three!”
The Great Hall is a place that serves more as a church than a hospital.
In the center stands a giant statue of “God” and the people who are present in the hospital are gathered here. Patients, doctors, and nurses alike.
“What’s with the “anti-imperialists”?
“…this is not good.”
They’ve got guns.
And that show-stopping countdown.
It’s a declaration that whoever is about to enter this great hall will be killed by them if they don’t make it in time.
… If it’s just us, it’s still just us, but worst of all, they’re right in front of us…three of them…and they’re going to kill us if we don’t make it in time.
A boy with a limp is trying desperately to walk. His mother and a nurse accompany him.
The “anti-imperialists” point their guns at them.
The “anti-imperialists” point a gun, created by the machine empire, at a citizen of a human country.
I knew. It was different from the plan.
It would be dangerous for us to take action before closing the distance with the enemy.
And even more so since the enemy had a gun.
“Humph, I knew I’d get a guy like you?”
The anti-imperialist group turns the guns that were aimed at the limping boy toward us.
But before that, he unleashes his integrity.
Then he activated accelerated thinking.
Accelerated thinking, reality stops time.
The guy I shot through said he was going to get someone like me.
In other words, it was a trap to shoot an innocent boy.
In anticipation of a man like me coming out.
So he understood that there was a threat inside this church hospital because his friends were not coming back, and he dared to act like a villain in order to lure them out. And I fell for it.
… It’s a bad situation. The enemy detected us before we could close the distance.
Moreover, the enemy’s weapon, which we thought was a bow, was a pistol.
The moment you release accelerated thinking, you will be shot at.
So, the first step is to determine who is already holding the gun barrel.
There are three of them. The rest is not in posture yet.
However, there are seven people who are ready to shoot anytime.
You’ll be shot while canceling accelerated thinking and knocking down three people.
“What’s wrong with that!”
He shoots three of them and again activates accelerated thinking.
He assesses the muzzle of the seven who have finished setting up their guns and identifies only those who can be fatally wounded.
He then shoots them again and activates accelerated thinking.
“I’m gonna kill this guy, soldier!”
The activation was delayed. The terrorists had taken another child hostage.
It was so outlandish and unthinking that it caught me by surprise.
They thought I was a soldier and that taking hostages would be effective… What to do?
“Hey, Dr. Chloe?!!”
“Ask for covering fire….!!!!”
Dr. Chloe takes off her disguise and starts running at full speed.
What a stupid thing to do ….!
I thought so, but it was a lot easier now that the enemy’s aim had shifted from me to the doctor.
While activating accelerated thinking, he shoots down the muzzle of a gun aimed at the doctor.
But that’s not all.
I can’t shoot the guy at the end of the teacher’s body. It’s a matter of positioning.
Where she is heading to, she will not be able to get there in time to shoot the scumbag who is using the boy as a shield!
“That won’t be necessary….!
The doctor catches the bullet aimed at his chest with both arms and heals it as it were.
Then, with the same momentum, she kicks the man who used the boy as a shield.
“I’ll only praise you for not shooting this boy. You lowlife.”
The guys with swords move forward as if aiming at the doctor who saved the boy.
While shooting them with integrity, she closes the distance.
Then, she cut down the last one. This one was faster than the one we shot through.
“You’re being reckless, Dr. Chloe.”
“… No, I just trusted your skill.”
That doesn’t mean I’m prepared to go in there and get shot through.
No matter how much of a priest you are, you’re too prepared.
“I’m gonna… I’m gonna kill you!!!!”
We beat all of them who were dressed like anti-imperialists.
So I was caught off guard. I forgot to mention that they were among the hostages.
The ambush soldiers had caught us completely off guard.
He pushes Dr. Chloe away and activates accelerated thinking.
A direct hit from the dagger, a counterattack from this posture, which she pushed away as quickly as possible, will not be in time.
I understand only such a reality. Will he have to receive it in the stomach?
If you can avoid a fatal wound, will Dr. Chloe do something about it….?
But faster than that, a cane comes flying out from a blind spot.
A blow that pushes the disguised anti-imperialist out of the way.
“Quite a quintessence, doctor.”
The man that Chloe called teacher.
It is a man of mature age with a prosthetic right leg.
“You seem to be as reckless as ever, Chloe.”
