The figure turns their head and looks inside the cargo, then lowers the gun.

 

 

 

“……?”

 

 

 

 

 Abigail, standing there, stiffens, readying herself for a fight.

 

 

 

 Then, a helmet flew into her hand.

 

 

 

“……Hops on! Quick!”

 

 

 

 At the sound of their voice, Abigail immediately put on a helmet and jumped out of the container.

 

 

 

 As she stepped outside, she saw another one waiting nearby.
They were both riding off-road bikes, and the person on the other bike was also wearing a helmet that hid their face.

 

 

 

 

 Just as Abigail mounted the back of the motorcycle, she saw a number of armed figures coming out of the surrounding alleyways.

 

 

 

“Hold on tight!!!”

 

 

 

 

 When told, she hugged the person riding in front of her.
She could felt the tight muscles against her arms.

 

 

 

 The bike with Abigail on it accelerated, with the rear wheel skidding.
The other motorcycle followed.

 

 

 

 Abigail looked at the side mirror and saw several figures running toward them, shouting something, before disappearing back into the alley.

 

 

 

 Shortly after, the bike drove down to the underground ring road.
The biting cold wind that had been assaulting Abigail's body instantly turned lukewarm.
She felt the tension drain from her entire body.

 

 

 

 With a whoosh and a roar of an engine, the motorcycle slipped between cars, changing paths and entering a dimly lit road.
dashed past the no trespassing sign and continued on its way through the darkness.

 

 

 

 Fifteen minutes of riding later, The biker abruptly hit the brakes, decelerating before entering the exit route.
The other motorcycle caught up with us a little later.

 

 

 

 The two lined up and stopped their engines.

 

 

 Abigail got off the bike at the urging of the driver, who also got off their bike.

 

 

 

 Both Abigail and the figure took off the helmets at the same time.

 

 

 

The figure has their Hair pulled back in a chignon.
and a pair of bored-looking sanpaku eye.

 

 

 

 She grinned wryly and then opened her mouth.

 

 

 

“Hi! I'm InoRyder.
You saw me at that time, right? Abby-chan!”

 

 

 

“Fox…..”

 

 

 The other person who climbed off the bike was a white-haired girl.

“That's Vani, also Fox”

 

 

 Verni responded to Abigail's gaze with a thumbs up.
Her expression didn't change at all.

 

 

 

 

“Well, we'll talk later.
For now, We're gonna go check Abby's room.
Leave the bike here and put the helmet on the handlebars.”

 

 

 

 Accompanied by InoRyder and Vani, Abigail walked.

 

 

 

 She did not even ask her for directions, just walked, leading the way through the city at a rapid pace.

 

 

 

 In the monorail, Abigail broke the awkward silence.

 

 

 

“….That was an amazing aim,  I can't believe you shot both of them in the head on a speeding car.”

 

 

“Hmm?” InoRyder turned around and said, “Nah, that wasn't us.”

 

 

 

“Then …….”

 

 

 

“There were other people nearby that not us.
They probably did the shooting though, and they were pretty good at it.”

 

 

 

 She shrugs and continues.

 

 

 

“To shoot a car at that speed from the side and hit the driver with pinpoint accuracy, It requires a lot of calculation from the moment you pull the trigger to the speed at which the firing pin falls off.
I think only Whisley can pull off a trick like that, at least in the Fox.
I didn't know there were other people in 88 who were that good.
I'm quite surprised.”

 

 

 After saying this, InoRyder laughed.

 

 

 

“Hehehe ……
Abby, how many enemies do you have? Vani said that the driver of that car is connected to the military, the back of the car is a gangster and the people who were posted around stinks of spy.
They even had a couple of hotshot assassins with them.”

 

 

“Driver's pistol belongs to the military,”  Vani added.  “the one you saw in the container was an amateur.
And for those around the cars, their guns were not officially registered by the 88. Probably those from central.
And the one that shot the driver sounded like a shotgun.”

 

 

 

“–There are too many people stalking you, huh? Are you some kind of super-hot young idol or something? ……
Well, I guess I can see why.”

 

 

 

 Looking into Abigail's face, InoRyder narrowed her eyes and smiled.

 

 

 

 The three arrived at the front door of Abigail's room.

 

 

 When Abigail unlocked the door, Vani slid her body through the doorway and went in first, alone.

 

 

 After waiting outside for a while, an inarticulate voice sounds from inside “all clear.”

 

 

 

 After hearing this, they entered as well.
Just before closing the door, InoRyder wrote the words “Beware of rabid dog”(mad dog)  on a small piece of the wood board she had pulled out from somewhere and hung it on the knob on the outside.

 

 

 

“–Well, let's clean the place, shall we? Wanna play, Vani?”

 

 

 

“I won't lose.”

 

 

 

 After saying this, they both scattered, looking around the room.

 Abigail sat back in her chair and finally breathed a sigh of relief.

 

 

 

 She sat still for a moment with her head on the table in a state of resignation, and after sometimes they came back.

 

 

 

“–How many?”

 

 

 

“Three.”

 

 

 

“….Ku, I lose.”

 

 

 InoRyder's shoulders slumped in disappointment, and Varni looking slightly smug.

 

 

 

 Each of them held a small camera or something similar in their hands.
InoRyder had two and Vani had three.

 

 

 

“Where did you find them?”

 

 

 

 

 Abigail asked, disgusted.

 

 

 

“I'm in the bathroom and kitchen.”

 

 

 

“The foyer, the living room.
And the bedroom.”

 

 

 

“Dammit, Vani! You can check it because you came in first! That's not fair!”

 

 

 

“It was your choice.”

 

 

 

 Wiretapping was, of course, something Abigail had expected and had already spotted them all.
The cameras were installed approximately the same day she met with Lieutenant General Penrose.
Niblo was supposed to have moved and turned it so that it was always in a blind spot.
However, she was also unsure if that was really all of it.

 

 

 

 

  The results gave her a perfect score.
All the tension left her body.

 

 

Abigail sighed deeply.

 

 

 

 InoRyder sat opposite her.
Vani was lying on the sofa, fiddling with the terminal.

 

 

 

“We had been summoned to the captain's office and we were suddenly told to take a long vacation”

 

 

 

 

 InoRyder began to speak suddenly.

 

 

 

“I plan to get rid of all my accumulated paychecks and I was playing with Vani on the bike, thinking I would enjoy the winding roads while drifting on the snowy roads.
It was so slippery and we have so much fun.”

 

 

 

 

 She looks into Abigail's eyes as she continues.

 

 

 

 

 

“So, I was just randomly drifting around town, and then……..Oh snap! It just so happens that I saw when Abby-chan was about to get kidnapped!”

 InoRyder raised her hands and made an exaggeratedly surprised face.

 

 

“Oh no! Oh no! We have to help! So we chased after the car, and all of a sudden we heard gunshots and the car flipped over.
I rushed to the rescue, and here we are.
Well, since it's a long vacation, I thought I might as well continue to hang out with the rumored war maiden, Abby-chan”

 

 

 

“Fu~”

 

 

 Abigail couldn't hold it in and blew out a little.

 

 

“So I guess I don't have to hire an escort anymore?”

 

 

 InoRyder shrug. 

 

 

 

“Why did you suddenly feel like hanging out with me even when your captain refused?” 

 

 

 

InoRyder closed her eyes, folded her arms and groaned, “Hmmm.”

 

 

 

“We do escort missions……sometimes, but we also do a lot more than that, like some shady stuff.”

 

 

 

 She nodded and continued.

 

 

 

“So, Like, when we're on duty, all of a sudden we get these weird orders.”

 

 

 

“……”

 

 

“We are professionals, and in our position, we give priority to orders that come down from a higher place.
Unfortunately, Abby's request for an escort was given a lower priority.
Besides, if they ask us anything, we have to answer their questions because we are obliged to report what we are doing on duty.
That's what the captain was concerned about.”

 

 

 

 

“……So that's why.”

 

 

 

 In other words, when you are in the chain of command, orders from higher up in the military take priority.
If they tell them to restrain Abigail, they have to restrain her.
if they tell them to kill her, they have to kill her.

 

 

 

“But on the other hand, we are professionals and we never work while we're on vacation! That's our way! The higher-ups are also very aware of this.
So, well, …… “

 

 

 InoRyder broke off and then let her gaze wander.

 

 

 

“It's like being in a soap opera.
Abby and I met by chance, we hooked up, and now we're fooling around together.
That's all.”

 

 

“So I need to thank Captain Whisley's generosity for forcing you girls to take a vacation.”

 

 

 When Abigail thought of that Whisley guy with a Buddha's face, she felt an inexpressible sense of reassurance.

 

 

 

“That Whisley got really serious …” 

 

 

 

 InoRyder stood up abruptly, pulled out her chair, and moved next to Abigail.

 

 

 

 She sat in the chair facing backward, resting her cheekbones on the backrest.

 

 

 

“—-and Isn't there something else you want to ask?” 

 

 

 

 Her face is drawn closer to Abigail.

“About grim reaper ……..about my senior” (Sempai)

 

 

 

 Vani seemed a little interested in what Inno Rider was saying, and while she was facing another way and fiddled with the terminal, she was listening.

 

 

 

 

“I want you to tell me about the Golden GrimReaper, Especially his name.”

 

 

 

“I can't just hand over information about my friends to some stranger that easily.” 

 

 

 

 InoRyder folded her hands behind her head in a coquettish manner.

 

 

 

(You're the one who started the conversation, What's wrong with you……)

 

 

 

 After complaining in her chest, she let out a sigh.

 

 

 

“What do you want?”

 

 

 

“Body.”

 

 

 

“?”

 

 

 

Abigail frowned.
InoRyder then pointed her index finger at her and…

 

 

“Fuck.”

 

 

she said.

 

 

 

 Abigail stared at the tip of her finger, speechless.

 

 

“Hah …….” She could hear Vani's tiresome sigh.

 

 

 

“……I'll ask you just in case, you're a woman, right?”

 

 

 

 

“That's quite complicated.”

 

 

 

 

“Are you a lesbian?”

 

 

 

 

“Well, I'm not particularly picky about it.
I don't care if it's a man or a woman.
As long as I like them.
And you're such a beautiful woman.”

 

 

 

 

 InoRyder stroked Abigail's cheek with her fingertip.

 

 

 

 

“Gotta give it a shot, right? hehehehe.”

 

 

 

 

 Abigail looked at InoRyder's grinning face.
