“Is that a lie?”
These were the words Alisa muttered unconsciously.
One can imagine the shock in Alisa’s heart.
Houri, although not as much as Alisa, was also deprived of the ability to speak by the scene before him.
At this moment, the scene shown in front of Houri is like hell that it’s really hard to imagine.
The ground had collapsed.
Everywhere in sight, all of them were turned into ruins.
The mountain next to it was cut off by a small half.
The river was wrung out like a rag.
Underground water burst out of the ground like a geyser, erupting along the numerous cracks in the ground that had been completely shattered, as if heavy rain was falling here, drenching every corner of the place.
There is Aragami flesh and blood everywhere. There is a pothole like a meteorite hit the ground, causing the scene to have a lot of holes.
Such a scene is like a battlefield ravaged by countless artillery fires, and like a slaughterhouse that has just undergone a brutal massacre so that the air has completely changed.
Faced with this scene, even Houri did not know what to express his feelings.
Only Alisa, with a voice that only Houri could hear, squeezed out this sentence with difficulty.
“Is this really the result of an Aragami?”
If that’s the case, then it’s too terrible, right?
If just one Aragami turned the surrounding area into this, then how in the world did the human survive?
After all, the same species of Aragami exists all over the world.
For example, Amaterasu, Tsukuyomi and Susano in the Far East.
For example, Zeus, Hera and Ouroboros in Europe.
These are the Deusphage species mentioned by Amemiya Rindo as being on par with Aphrodite.
If any one of these Deusphage species can cause such destruction, then it is only a matter of time before the whole earth is ravaged, right?
And under such a ravage, is there a place for humans to survive?
The answer is definitely the cruelest.
There is no doubt that people have been looking forward to the day when Aragami is completely defeated.
But the scene before them is enough to shatter this expectation in the heart of any human being, leaving nothing left.
So, this is hell.
A hell that makes humans realize the cruel truth and despair for the future.
“Fuh…” Houri exhaled a long breath, as if he wanted to exhale the depression in his heart, and regained his composure.
Then, Houri looked around the whole scene, which was unbearable, and finally, turned his eyes to one of the directions.
There, there was a very obvious trace on the ground.
It was as if something had plowed over the traces.
Moreover, the marks were also very large, telling people that the size of the existence passing by here was definitely not to be underestimated.
Seeing this, Houri was sure at once.
“Aphrodite should have gone over there.” Houri’s gaze looked into the distance and murmured. “That direction seems to be the direction of the Russian branch, right?”
At this moment, even Houri began to doubt.
“What’s in the Russian branch?” Houri said to Alisa. “Why would an Aragami of this caliber come all the way from the sea where it lives?”
Hearing Houri, Alisa’s expression became a bit cloudy.
In the end, Alisa still said.
“I don’t know what’s in the Russian branch, after all, I’ve only just joined the Russian branch, and I haven’t dealt with anyone.” Alisa looked over at Houri and said. “But after confirming the news of the Aphrodite attack, I remembered the lieutenant had said this before.”
Alisa recalled the events of that time and repeated the words of the lieutenant.
“Why Aphrodite again?”
That’s what the lieutenant said at the time.
“Again?” Houri couldn’t help but be stunned, followed by pondering.
Could it be that Aphrodite had already had some kind of relationship with the Russian branch?
“What’s the lieutenant up to?”
Houri swore that after this incident, he would make sure to find out more about this matter.
It was not only for the sake of his Side Mission but also for the revenge of the lieutenant’s plot.
“No matter what, let’s get going.” Houri suppressed the thoughts in his mind and said. “We’re already here, there is no reason not to continue to pursue.”
Alisa neither nodded nor shook her head, but apparently shared Houri’s thoughts.
But before that, a voice suddenly sounded, so Houri and Alisa both stopped in their spot.
“What are you doing here?”
With the sound of such a voice, Houri and Alisa saw it.
In a corner not far away, a figure unknowingly appeared, slowly approaching in the direction of Houri and Alisa.
It was a dark-skinned, hooded jacket, with white hair and a carrying jagged sword on his shoulder.
“Soma?” Houri startled.
The visitor was one of the members of the first unit of the Far East branch – Soma.
However, Soma did not see the joy or even the kindness of his acquaintance, but just stared at Houri and Alisa and said with annoyance.
“This is not a place where people like you can just come.” Soma as if even the expression brought a hint of darkness, said without mercy. Do you really think your life is too long?”
Hearing Soma’s unkind words, Alisa’s face could not help but sink slightly.
Houri, on the other hand, was used to it, or rather in the face of someone else’s through tone, and asked Soma himself. “Are you alone, Captain Amemiya and Miss Sakuya?”
Soma did not answer, just silent for a moment, then turned around and said coldly. “If you want to know, then come here yourself.”
After that, Soma walked away as if he didn’t want to wait for Houri and Alisa.
It must be said that Soma had smoothly pulled up Alisa’s hatred.
Therefore, Alisa said to Houri with no expression. “Is this how all the God Eaters in your Far East branch look like?”
“Quite a character, isn’t it?” Houri pursed his lips and then said.
“Although I think the God Eater in the Russian branch has a lot of personalities too, especially some of the newcomers.”
Houri left Alisa directly behind and followed Soma.
Alisa’s eyes flashed with a trace of anger, but said nothing and also followed.
