Chapter 14: Test of courage
(I'm not scared... <3)
(A test of courage as a pair with Kyouko... This should be a chance!?)
Don't tell me...
He left me behind and ran away....!?
Are you the culprit behind the mind-controlling?
Y- // You have no chance!
Even if you try to control me, I can shake it off with electric waves!
(Though I don't exactly know why)
Hee. he can even do that.
Huh? Did I just run my mouth!?
Well, I don't plan to control you anyway.
You're getting deceived by Tatsumi Raito.
Stop clinging to me every single time!
I... // I'm sorry..
(Wah, I said don't cling to me!)
Hey Tokui, // don't you think we strayed off the route after all?
(I hear some voices from really far away)
We are not! // This is north and the top of the map is north too, so...
(Test of Courage Route Map)
Where is north again?
Why isn't the top north!? (I don't get it!)
Wah, what are you doing, stupid girl!?
Who are you calling... // !!
(God, what's this...)
Could this be...
what the teacher talked about...
Just where did he go.
It's not like I'm all that resistant against scary stuff....
Oh, Takane Kyouko. What are you doing?
Hah... Haha... (Just Tatsumi-kun...)
Mh? Where's Tanaka Yuu?
W- Well, we suddenly got separated...
Huh? Separated? (What's that guy doing...)
I think he got scared and turned back... (You haven't seen him?)
(No, we haven't.)
A- Asuka!? (What's up!?)
Map... Our map...
(AH!) That aside, listen! // We found something incredible!!
Before that, have you seen Yuu?
Why? What's up with him?
----Don't tell me
something happened to him....?
---Raito is deceiving me?
Think about it.
What good does it do you to cooperate with him?
Well... // But mankind's future is...
Mankind won't be wiped out by the virus pandemic, you know?
Actually, the virus // gives mankind a new evolution.
Do you know of "natural selection"?
It's about how the giraffe, who adapted to her environmental change by growing a large neck // has a higher survival rate than a giraffe, who didn't adapted.
You know, the rebels
couldn't adapt to the environmental change called the A-Virus. // They are the short-necked giraffe.
They, who should have been selected out, // go against the natural flow and try to change the past, so that they can survive---
Can you say that this is right?
What's more // They ignore your opinion and force you into a marriage with a selected girl.
I... I want to marry Kyouko-chan myself too...
You also want to be killed when you can't married her?
Besides, for now it might be so, but your feelings could change.
It's not all that uncommon. // It's only natural being drawn to a girl that pays attention to you instead of one that doesn't.
---But Raito won't forgive that. // But we could protect you... // What's more...
You could have children with various girls from all over the world, you know?
Wh- What am I imagining it for!?
Haha. // Well, give it a thought.
who really is your ally....
Tatsumi Raito or us---
Looks like Yuu still isn't back...
(Tch,) he's always causing trouble...
I'm glad. // Where did you go?
What were you thinking leaving a girl all by herself!?
Eh? // Ah, no...
Calm down, Asuka... // It's not like he did it out of spite...
Geez. // You're too easy on him.
Hey, Tanaka Yuu.
I specially gave you some time alone with her. What were you doing?
...Looks like he did well, // that "Marionetter".
Ev- Everything is going as planned.
We can't have it any other way.
I mean, we too specially // came all the way here!
[Side] It got awkward between Yuu and Raito---The assassins shake up their relationship. What will they do next!? Don't miss the next chapter!!
