296-268 Investigation of the incident (3)

"This is Sazius, Viscount of Nenus, Lord of the Guard.

 After completing the various preparations, we passed through the gate of the target house and stood in front of the door.
 Sagius knocked on the door and called out, but there was no response from inside.

 After knocking a few more times a little more roughly, we finally heard a weak "yes" from inside, and the door opened a little.

 What I saw was, as I had heard, a woman around 20 years old.
 She was quite beautiful, but her face was a little pale and unhealthy looking.

This is Sazius of the Territorial Guard. I'm currently investigating a crime. I'm going to search your house.
"I'm in trouble. ......

 The woman's confused, wandering gaze was of no concern to Sazius.

It doesn't matter. You have to help us.

 Very forceful.
 There was no pushing and shoving.

 Sagius put his hand on the door and pulled it open at once, restraining the woman who had stumbled out of the house.

 If the Japanese police did this, they'd be guilty for sure, but here it's OK.
 No problem.
 And it's convenient in a way.

Uh, Sazius, you take care of the guy.
"All right. Be careful.

 I don't know if she's the enemy or not, but it makes sense if we can hold one of them and get Sazius away from the scene.

 When we entered the house with Toya in the lead, it was quite dark inside.

 The curtains were drawn and there was no sunlight, even though it was the middle of the morning and afternoon.

 --This is a good thing.

The response is on the second floor of ....... Maybe three.

 I'm not sure what to make of this.

 First of all, the reaction of non-monsters is slow and difficult to sense.

 This is especially difficult for non-hostile people, and it is quite difficult in crowded cities.
 For example, a hive of bees.
 It's like asking how many bees are in a hive.

 If there are few people, like in the forest, or if you are very close to someone, you can get a good idea.

 Furthermore, if you are in a building with many obstructions, thick walls, or high airtightness, you will not be able to sense it as well.

 "It's easy to understand if you think of it like sound waves.
 So again, there is no way to know in advance how many people are in the building.

 Well, now it's easier to tell, because the hostility is pretty strong when you break in.

"The stairs are at ......!
Be careful, okay?

 We followed Toya's lead and ran.

 At the top of the stairs, Toya paused for a moment, but then his ears twitched and he quickly ran toward a room, opened the door, and charged with his shield at the ready.

 I'm not going to give you time to think about it, that's the plan.
 What we're concerned about is what happens when the other guy is a classmate.

 If that is the case, then they are just amateurs and will not have the ability to react instantly.

 And sure enough, when I ran into the room after Toya, he was upright on the bed, looking at me stunned.

 The room was rather large, about 20 tatami mats, dimly lit, with a table and a bed in one corner.

 On the bed was a man of about our age, sitting upright, and beside him sat two thinly clad women,......, or were they girls?

 The next moment, the room is illuminated by the light that Haruka has released.

 The girl's face was clearly visible,......, one of which was the girl in the portrait we were looking for.

 It seems that the sketch that Natsuki had shown us was quite good, and there was no mistaking the resemblance.

 The other girl was new to me, but a little younger.
 A little older than Mary?
 I believe there was a 12-year-old girl among the missing. Could it be her?

d*mn it! You can't break in without a warrant!

 The man who was stunned on the bed finally came to his senses at that point, and jumped off the bed, swearing like that.

 He is black.
 There's no way anyone in this world would have a warrant.

 I'm not sure.
 Yes, it's black. ...... Who is this guy?
 He's pale and unhealthy looking, probably because he's a vampire.

 I'm not sure what to make of this.

 Even if you take into account that it was a year ago and my memory is fading, there is no subtle target to hit .

 My facial recognition system isn't very good, so I can't say for sure, but my face must have changed when I became a vampire. I'm sure.

"Meekly surrender! I don't know who you are!

I don't know who you are, but you'd better give up. Or ......, or ......, or whatever!

It's Kaji! f*ck you! Even if you're a little inconspicuous, you should at least remember his name! Nagai! And you're Kamiya, aren't you?

 The man pointing at us, stomping his feet... or Kaji.
 I see, Kaji.
 Now that you mention it, it sure sounds like it.
 But if you'll remember, you should stop wearing your hair that long.
 There's a lot going on, and I've got a lot of magic and stuff to learn.
 You can't help but push out the less important information, right?

I don't care about that. Can you just surrender? I'm holding you for kidnapping. ...... No, I'm holding you for kidnapping.

East, Shito, Furumiya! Shit, you guys are still in the rear here!

I'm sure you've had your way with Kaji-kun too, haven't you?

 I'm sure you're not the only one," he said, glancing at the girl still sitting on the bed and giving Kaji a look of disgust.

 I'm not saying that I don't understand the feeling, because I'm a man myself, and I'm sure I'd be tempted if I had the power of fascination, but actually doing it would be a bad idea.

 I'm not saying I don't understand the feeling at all.
 It's not clear that they were actually doing that. ...... No, it's not clear that they were actually doing that.

Well, that's a crime, so let's just pay for it.

 In fact, we don't know how much of the crime was committed by Kaji, which makes it a little difficult to deal with, but the kidnapping seems to be the only thing that is certain.

 If all the suspicious deaths are the result of this guy, it would be a good idea to kill him quickly. .......

 In the event that you have any kind of questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.

It's a little tricky. It's a little tricky to be found out, but I guess I should be grateful that you brought Azuma and the others with you. --Come on, Azuma! Kill Kamiya!

 Kaji's words made us tense, and we turned our attention to Haruka.

What do you think, Haruka?
"...... Yeah. No problem, it seems.

 I'm not sure what to do.


 We knew it would probably be fine, but we breathed a sigh of relief when we found out there was actually no problem.

 In the event that Haruka becomes enchanted, Yuki and Natsuki were going to restrain Haruka while Toya and I were going to kill Kaji without question, but that situation seems to have been avoided for the time being.

What? Why? Shidou! Furumiya!

 I'm not sure what to make of this, but I think it's a good idea.

I'm not a fan. I'm not sure I want to charm a man, but I can't help it! Hey, Kamiya! Hold Azuma!

 I thought I saw a glint in his eyes as he looked at me, but that was it.
 It's not like I'm resisting anything or anything.

Why? Why doesn't the charm work?

 Well, we're using some defensive magic that might work, and if the charm works so easily on us after a year of hard work, it's too powerful an ability for Adversus to give us.

 In this respect, we trust Advaistris.

 Unless you've been working hard to improve your abilities, but you don't seem like the type, and that's why you wouldn't abuse the charm.

"Because we're classmates? No, that's not possible. I had no problem with Takamatsu.

 In the event that you've got any questions regarding where and the best way to get in touch with me, you'll be able to contact me at the web site.

"Takamatsu is from the Order of Satomi Saints?

"Oh? Yeah, you know it. I charmed him a little and pushed him back, and he danced very well, Takamatsu. I had a lot of fun with that, didn't I?

 Kaji, who had been smirking and sneering at my question, suddenly deepened his smile, as if he had thought of something.

"Oh, yes! I'm sure you've heard of it. You know how nasty religious groups can be, don't you?

 That's right. You're right. Religious groups are troublesome.
 You never know what they'll do, especially if they're fanatical, and they might even commit terrorist acts.
 But... .......

I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but the Order of the Saints has already been shut down.
...... What?

 I'm not sure what to make of it.
 I'm sure he's been holed up in his house indulging in debauchery or something like that.

 In a way, it seems that he's been living a righteous life of self-degradation, which we, the opponents, are grateful for...

d*mn it! Well, that's okay. I guess I'll just have to deal with him myself.
"Wow, that's a very small-fry boss line, isn't it?

 I'm not sure what to say, but I'm sure you'll understand.

 But I agree with you.
 The bosses who talk like that are actually small fry.
 They don't even have weapons to begin with, so what are they talking about?

 It would be magic to be careful. .......
