Chapter 96 Surprising Meeting, Speculations And Zombie Part 1
We were hurling insults at one another even as we were getting back into town. After we got to Eldolato Aramis and Break went back to Rabbitz, but for some reason Emul stayed behind.
「Believe me, you might regret it dearly if you don’t present Emul to this Animalia chick anytime soon.」
「Yeah, or else what? She’ll cause a server-wide zombie apocalypse? …… By the way, Katsu? You’ve been strangely quiet for a while now. And you’re spacing out. What’s wrong?」
Wait a second, why do I get a feeling that something seriously wrong is about to happen!?
「I’ve sent all the mails to everyone that’s interested. They should be here soon……」
I don’t like this. I don’t like this in the slightest. I just want to go home. I don’t want to be dragged to the Pencilgton’s most favorite shop and just want to log out and sleep!
Getting chills from Katsu’s absentminded gaze I start to look around. And lo and behold, I could see some avatars quickly approaching us like a hoard of angry zombies.
「Alright, let’s go Mister Scapegoat.」
「Drop dead, you Unique Bastard…… Ha, hahaha, what’s with this strange sense of déjà vu that I’m feeling right now?
They were getting closer and closer just like a mindless horde…… Wait just a moment, weren’t there a little bit too many players moving towards us in the same fashion!?
Scary, too scary! The fuck is this! A real in-game zombie outbreak!? Is this what they mean by biohazard danger!?
And there was also Animalia-san whose eyes were dead set onto me. No, it’s not that…… She was staring right at Emul who, sensing the incoming danger turned into a scarf and was pretending to be just that around my neck.
「Emul, my friend, let’s show these chumps what it means to carry a Vorpal Soul inside of you!」
「Trying to get away from here right now would be nothing more than suicide, not a display of Vorpal Soul……!」
Finally, Animalia stood right in front of me. It’s really amazing how the game engine could even reproduce the bloodshot eyes. Fuck this, where is my trusty boom-stick when I need it the most!?
「YOU’VE GOT A FRIEND REQUEST FROM ANIMALIA. “Let’s cooperate for now and shake hands.”」
SUB: GIVE ME EMUL AND NO ONE HAS TO GET HURT.
I could feel Emul staring at me with his eyes full of despair and hopelessness.
「I’m sorry, Emul. Please do try to forgive me and bear with it for a while!」
The moment Animalia got her hands on Emul, all of the players that were following her got around her and began to study Emul with utmost care.
It’s alright. They won’t hurt him. They are an animal-loving guild, after all. It should be fine…… Right?
「It’s like throwing a lump of fresh meat right into the crowd of angry zombies.」
「See? Told you that would happen. You know, Sanraku-kun, sometimes you should really take to heart the advice that others give you out of the kindness of their hearts.」
But didn’t you tell me that when it was basically already too late? While I was thinking that, there was already a large crowd of people starting to form around us.
「That was a very sudden call, Pencilgton.」
「Nice to see you, Momo-chan. You know that surprises are my forte.」
「So full of yourself!」
And there was Saiga-0, wearing her usual heavy armor, but this time around it was not emitting its malevolent aura and color. Also, her full armor was so heavy that the ground was shaking with every single step she was taking.
Next to her was another female player who had a sword hanging on her back, looking oddly similar to the one that Pencilgton was carrying around. She was also wearing a long coat with armor plating hanging all over it for protection. Her long red hair was all let loose onto her back and shoulders.
Apparently she must have known Pencilgton, for their conversation was entirely different than with any other player.
Looking at Saiga-0 and exchanging a small nod with her, I felt that the meter showing my urge to run the hell away from here was rapidly increasing.
「…… He-hello there.」
「Ah, hello there.」
Whenever I was talking with this person I felt as though I was starring in an American western. Just like a quickdraw, whoever would come with the initiative would emerge victorious.
「Gee, what are you doing, fidgeting around like that for……? Nice to meet you. I’m Saiga-100, the current leader of the “Black Wolves” guild.」
「Ah, the pleasure is all mine.」
「I’ve heard so much about you. I always wanted to talk to the person who managed to receive not one, but two curse marks from the Night Prowler Luukan.」
Yeah, thanks a lot for making my life become defined as “half-naked” Luukan you asshole.
Shaking my hands with Saiga-100, I felt as though the meter to get the fuck away from here managed to get even higher than before.
「Hmm, does that mean that I’m the last?」
Oh hey, won’t you look at that, it’s the pink-haired magical girl-wannabe. She just walked right up to us and sat comfortably on a chair that she pulled out for herself without asking anyone. Even though she looked like a magical girl, her voice was actually that of an old man. What a contradiction.
「Oh, hey, if it isn’t Saiga-100-kun! How are you doing? Everything alright?」
「…… We manage somehow. And how is Massive Dynamite-san doing? Still busy with the New World Exploration Team?」
From the flow of the conversation I could only assume that this Massive Dynamite-san was this magical girl’s partner? I mean, really? Massive Dynamite? What was that, a Pro Wrestler’s name or something?
While I was thinking that to myself, I could feel that this girl…… This magical girl-wannabe was staring right at me.
「Well, well, who would have thought that we would end up meeting in a place such as this so quickly after becoming friends?
「We also came here completely by accident.」
What a fat lie, I know that you were all summoned here by Pencilgton.
But still, I see that many great and important people gathered here today. Black Wolves top players, Animalia the animal freak and that magical girl wannabe was from Library, correct? Yup, only some real kingpins here.
