Chapter 206 Escape
InoRyder shouted on top of Abigail as she pushed her down.
She quickly yanked Abigail along and moved closer to the wall near the hangar entrance.
Taking cover, she quickly scanned her surroundings.
From the angle, the sniper was positioned somewhere off the runway.
“Vani, can you see!?”
“I can't see!”
“At least a kilometer away!”
Vani and Rudra replied in turn.
Vani was standing next to Abigail with Yakumo in her arms, and Rudra was crouched against the opposite wall, protecting Natsuki.
“One kilo …..tch!!”
InoRyder clenched her teeth.
Shortly after, there was a thud, and the metallic clang echoed in the hangar.
It was the sound of Wakefield's body falling face down, and the knife in his hand sliding across the floor.
Abigail pointed quickly.
That knife is an important piece of evidence.
She must retrieve it.
Just as Abigail was about to make a move.
”Ah!” Abigail's clothes are pulled back and she loses her balance.
Abigail's head jerked forward as she almost fell.
Her long hair flowed in front of her eyes.
Then, a big hole appeared in the curtain of her blonde hair that was suspended in mid-air.
Goosebumps rose on her neck as she felt like a bullet just flew past her eyelashes.
“That's dangerous!!! Don't get out from behind the concrete!! They're targeting us!! What the hell are you thinking?”
Abigail has her head cooled after being warned sternly by InoRyder.
When she turned around, she saw Yakumo grabbing her clothes.
It was Yakumo who had pulled her earlier.
Abigail crushed him to her chest, distracting herself from the fear that threatened her earlier.
InoRyder growled angrily.
“A shot from a kilometer away! Who the hell are they? And How can they see Abby's movement behind the wall?”
Rudra's voice rang out.
He pointed to the front window of the helicopter in the hangar.
“I saw a flash there.
One of the buildings.
They are watching us with those.”
“Fucking hell ……
They can see every move we're making!”
The helicopter's window was curved, acting like a curved mirror.
Most of the interior of the hangar was visible with it.
“Can you break the glass on that helicopter?”
Abigail said, and InoRyder shook her head.
“No, I can't.
It's called a slow tortoise, Its glass is hard enough to withstand some of the aliens' anti-aircraft magic.
A revolver won't break it.”
“The signal is dead,” said Vani, waving the terminal.
“I was caught off guard! Never thought someone would dare to open fire at 88, and in the middle of a military facility too!!”
“If we just sit tight here, maybe they'll give up?”
if it's so well planned like this, nine times out of ten, They're jamming us for sure.
If we don't move soon —- tsk.
Speak of the devil.”
InoRyder's revolver barrel burst with fire.
The bullet landed on a door at the back of the hangar.
There is a glimpse of several people snuggling in.
“What are we going to do now, InoRyder?”
“The sniper is the main issue.
It's impossible to get outside.
Rudra or Vani will take the bait and force their way through the back door, during that time.
I will stay and……”
She glanced at Natsuki and Yakumo.
“–This is not good.”
Bang! Bang! She laughed bitterly as she fired her revolver.
Probably she thought it would be difficult to break through with Natsuki and Yakumo in her arms.
–Should I use Niblo?
(I don't want to reveal Niblo's power too much, but ……)
Just then, Abigail wondered whether or not to instruct Niblo to use
“–What's wrong, Yakumo?”
Suddenly, she noticed that Yakumo was pointing outside the hangar.
Followed his gaze and looked outside, there was a roar and a gust of wind.
Masses of snow are blown onto the platform by the wind.
The wind quickly gained momentum and became a whirlwind, creating a small blizzard.
The surroundings turned completely white.
like a smokescreen had been set up.
Everything happened in the blink of an eye.
Abigail looks on in wonder at the mysterious phenomenon.
“Go through!!” InoRyder's furious shout sounded at her back.
Without hesitation, Rudra pulls Natsuki's hand and Vani pulls Yakumo's hand, and they run out onto the runway, which is now enveloped in a cloud of snow.
“Abby, you too!”
InoRyder winched Abigail as she reached out to pick up the knife.
the floor near the knife exploded and the sound of a gunshot followed.
Abigail's face scrunched up in frustration.
“–It's the common practice of snipers to focus a bait like that! If you try to pick it up, you'll get shot! Come on, this way!”
InoRyder pulls Abigail's hand and runs.
Rudra led the way through a blizzard that obscured their vision.
They fled the depot site and ran for a while through the city's buildings, quickly slipping into a narrow alley to hide.
“I think we've out from their line of sight.”
Rudra said and stopped.
Natsuki breathed ……
and hugged Yakumo, which was handed to her.
“It's not safe to go back to Abby's room now.
We can try to go to one of Fox's places.
InoRyder looked at Yakumo, who was being held by Natsuki
” ⎯That's not really your doing right? shorty? Don't tell me you can see that sniper, or you can actually create that wind?”
Natsuki hurriedly defended Yakumo from InoRyder's curious gaze.
“Don't look at children like that!”
“Heh heh heh…….
Well, let's see.
Which one are we going to visit? ……With this many people, the only place we can all go is Johann's house.
This guy would have no problem getting involved…”
“Then follow me.”
“Do you have somewhere to stay?”
“It's one of the top secured places in 88, They shouldn't be able to break in.”
Abigail led them to a building not too far from there.
InoRyder looked up and nodded admiringly.
It's the R&D center of the November team.
“November is the Lieutenant General's lap.
No matter how much they want to, they can't just storm in here.
This attack wasn't from the lieutenant general.
If it was him, he would have just detained us directly.”
“However, You and the ordinary citizens, including Natsuki, are not allowed to go inside…”
While Abigail and her friends were standing in front of the entrance, with security staring at them suspiciously, they happened to see a familiar face coming out of the entrance.
Abigail raised her voice.
When his eyes meet Abigail's, he says, “Oh” and scurries over to her.
Dragging his oversize lab coat along.
Good evening! Do you work the night shift this day? Oh, You are really the true Researcher! Grandpa Benedict once said that the lack of sleep is the love letter to the innovation!”
“Sheridan, I need a favor.
Would you please give us a cover?”
Sheridan tilted his head.
“They're going to kill me.”
The angle of his tilted neck increased even more.
InoRyder grabbed his head with an iron grip.
“Daah! Anyway, I need you to let us in right now! We could get shot at any moment! If you don't do something soon, I'm going to take you hostage you little shit!”
“I-I-I-It's hurts!! You're damaging my brain!!”
“Hey, hey! You there!”
A security guard rushes in to stop her.
“Everybody be quiet!!”
Abigail shouted loudly, pulling InoRyder away and placing a hand on the teary-eyed Sheridan's shoulder.
“I'll explain the situation later.
Sheridan, issue me a visitor's ID.”
Thompson, I can vouch for these people's identities, so please issue these people IDs.”
“A-Are you sure, Major Sheridan?”
If it's for visitors, I can issue it at my discretion.
It is urgent.
Also, please raise the security level.
We don't want any intruders in here.”
The guards were puzzled, but nodded at Sheridan's words and issued ID cards for everyone.
The group was then taken by Sheridan to a conference room.
That was really helpful.”
“What on earth happened?”
Sheridan asked as he handed out cans of juice to everyone there, They were all slumped in their chairs and looked disheartened.
“I was meeting someone at the aircraft depot, and all of a sudden they sniped us.
And I think there were other attackers too.”
“……Police won't do much with something like that ……
We should contact Alpha directly.”
Abigail held up her hand to stop Sheridan, who swiftly pulled a terminal from the pocket of his lab coat.
“Can you give me a minute? I'd like to think about it a bit first.”
“Y-Yeah ……umm, okay?”
Leaving him in a state of confusion, InoRyder and Abigail turned to each other.
“If it's not a lieutenant general, then was that AASPINT?”
“I don't know.
The first bullet aimed at Wake, not me, so maybe not.”
“If they want to silence Wakefield …….then I guess it was an attempt to sabotage the 89 defense investigation.
Do they know about our meeting with Rutherford and the others?”
“I don't think so, because even if they didn't, they would have known I've been snooping around for a while.
I don't know where they came from, but it's safe to assume that there's someone out there who doesn't want people digging up the 89 defense.
And it's a force that can use some pretty extreme measures.”
“What's up with the 89 defense thing?”
Sheridan asked curiously.
“…..Well that's ……..
All of them just realized that Sheridan was an outsider.
