Cage of Eden Chapter 168
(They're heading for the last tower, the "building. Awaits them hope or despair?)
(Latest Volume 18 is selling well!)
Aw, my legs are so tired.
We have been walking for 4 days after leaving the pyramid.
Are we there soon?
But we can't see the "building" yet..
Chapter 168: The last tower
H- How is my wound,
Mhm, the wound didn't open up again. It looks good. // The swelling is gone too, so there's no fear for an infection either.
Seems like you still have a bit of a fever though. Does it hurt anywhere?
I would say it's looking good.
But we can't certain yet. // Please don't overdo it.
it's going to scar after all...?
Don't worry. Plastic surgery works wonders these days. // When we're back in Japan, it can be covered up.
What does it matter, Sensei...
I'm not bothered by a scar at all.
Then I'll excuse myself.
H- Hey, // stop making remarks that will be misunderstood!
What you mean misunderstood?
Okay, time we go on!
Is everyone ready?
A bit late too ask, // but did we really need to go with everyone?
Couldn't we have left the half at the pyramid? // Such a big group is slowing us down...
It's better as a group.
Sure, we don't need everyone to investigate the "building"...
But I have something else in mind for them.
I'll have them build a boat!
While we wait for Sensei's wound to heal, we decided that
it would be good to build a big boat.
But a boat for 80 people will be impossible. // So we need to build a few boats.
And since that will take quite a while, we came up with the idea to start building them while we investigate the building.
Mhm. I see. // Then we can head to Japan immediately after the investigation is done.
Though it's still not clear how to handle Nishikiori's info...
But what happened to him....
He's strangely obedient now...
*gulp* // *gulp*
Fuah. // That's enough.
Don't take your eyes off "her".
The key I talked about to turn the tables...
It seems she's has it...
Shouldn't it come into view about now? We already walked so much...
Yeah, according to the map, we should reach it by noon...
Okay, the last push!
Finally we're getting there...!!
A lot happened..
But we made it so far with the help of everyone. // Because everyone was there...
We overcame all obstacles so far because we kept together.
Just a bit more...
until the last tower...
The reason why this island isn't on any maps...
The reason why extinct animals were created...
The reason why no one's here...
And what it is that we got dragged into...
We might find
an answer to that all.
Hehe. Now I'm fired up!
Let's find the "building" alr--
A bottomless swamp!!
You can stand here.
A river you say!?
What's up, Mariya?
Wait a sec..
I knew it!
Look at the map...
There's a river besides the tower...!!
Yeah. The river drawn here..
might be this one.
W- We're close!!
This river is shallow! You can walk in it!
B- Be careful.
I- Is that it?
It's right in front of us!!
We found it!!
What kind of tower is it---
We're finally here...
This is the last tower---
Wh- What a strange tower...
About four floors? Surprisingly low...
Seems it are a couple of buildings.
First time I see something like this.
Is it build like a complex?
Well, if it IS a residential area...
And there's a "wall" around the tower...
Is it against the animals...?
Look there... Looks like a gate.
Okay! We might get in there...
I stepped on something...?
Wh- What's this...!
Th- There's around 100!!
B- Be careful!
This isn't... normal!!
(A silent warning from the bones!! The "truth" waiting for them there isn't necessarily "hope"!)
