[TN: Anyone agree that the slayers are scary because they seem almost human….?]

-[Pails?]

Kyoko radioed in a few times but there was no response from Cha Jun Sung. The radio function on the PDA is delivered through the helmet, so there is no need to worry that it leaks out.

He needs to speak in order to respond, but he could be detected by the male. He can hear it. It is just a situation where he cannot respond.

“There’s no response.”

“It’s okay. He won’t be able to respond because the Slayer is nearby.”

If they had started battling in the mountains, they would have heard noise. This quiet atmosphere would not have lasted. It seems they are hiding.

The sisters and the Lifers assigned each person a direction to create a lookout for where the Slayers might come from. They are prone to surprise attacks. They need to stay alert.

Their view is clear, so they can prepare for any approaching danger.

They will be strengthened if they combine with Cha Jun Sung, but they do not have the nerve to enter. Nature is an unfriendly environment for people who are used to civilization.

A massive body weighing hundreds of kg is stepping on the ground. The heavy footsteps make noise. The Lifers all looked to one direction.

Their mouths go dry. They could see the male clearly. They are about 60 to 70m apart, and it does not come any closer.

The male drew a circle around the Lifers. It seems to be calculating something in its head.

“It’s measuring the distance.”

“Distance?”

“Since it followed the force, it’ll have seen a lot of guns and know what it’s like!”

The Slayer’s intellect is that of an elementary school student’s. A bullet goes through trees, rocks, and the ground. It makes anything in its radius a mess.

It understands that it cannot get hit. It cannot see the bullet, but it has the ability to detect the direction of the muzzle.

Slayer is more about the body, so it is the type that wins with speed rather than strength.

The male was going around in circles and stopped moving with its back to the prison.

“Our place to retreat is blocked.”

“The Slayer in the front, mountains in the back? Is it trying to stifle us?”

The prison is blocked. If they are pushed back in battle, the only place they can go is the mountains. The moment they go in, it is the male’s world. It had thrown them far out.

Another change happened. It is an unwelcome change for the Lifers.

The female walks out of the prison, covered in blood. On its blade is a Lifer from the prison.

“Save….. Me.”

The Lifer struggled to put his hand out. Unfortunately, they cannot take the hand.

Chills ran down the spine of Lifers who followed Koharu. It is a terrible situation as it is, but they would have already been dead if they had remained in the facility.

The blade came out. The Lifer’s eyes rolled back as he went lifeless.

The female recovered its ability to fight after eating meat and regaining the nutrients it had lost. It had gone back to its original state.

The only weapons they can trust are their guns. The male went farther away in order to avoid the bullets. It is a distance at which they can guard themselves from the Lifers.

It is impossible to take on both adults between 5 people. They cannot expect to live. Even Kyoko and Koharu who had gone through the 2nd stage of body modifications cannot last more than a few minutes.

The sisters’ physical ability is half that of Cha Jun Sung. Aspects like their muscles, bone structure, height, and weight are significantly inferior to that of men. It is a woman’s limit.

Their abilities were proportionately converted in the virtual version, so men and women were equal. But this is reality. There is a difference.

There is no need to think of it being unfair. Just as mutants and humans are different, men and women are different. Women cannot catch up to men in regards to their bodies.

The female speaks to the male. The male looks from the Lifers to the mountains. Then it protected its vital spots with both of its blades.

An object came flying from a distance to go through the large child, and broke the female’s blade. They relayed this to each other in their own language.

The baby that was hiding in the trees, could not endure the frustration and came down. The young ones never listen to their parents.

“Shoot that one first!”

A Lifer looking in the direction of the baby, held his gun. They cannot avoid battle. Then they will have to kill the baby and reduce their numbers.

When the Lifer was about to shoot the baby, the male ran towards it as though flying, while the female went at the Lifers.

The male covered the front of the baby and raised its blades diagonally.

The bullets bounced off the blade and started flinging out. It is an awkward angle to shoot at, so they only left a few scrapes. They were just letting the powerful attack flow past.

The baby listened to the male and ran away to the prison. The male blocked its back so it would not be attacked. The baby needs to go away so they can properly fight.

The female’s blade scratches the surface. Their skin rips and scars form if they are hit. Koharu, Kyoko, and the shooting Lifers rolled on the floor.

It is not an attack that they can easily avoid. They cannot even see the swinging blade. If they feel like it is coming, they need to throw their bodies out of the way.

It is trying to rip them apart. The purpose is to reduce their fire power.

If it focuses on 1 person, he or she would be easy to kill. But that means that the other Lifers would have room to act, making it possible to be attacked.

Mutants do not lay out a great scheme to fight. They are born with an instinct to fight that humans do not have.

Koharu avoided the blade and cut through the female’s thigh with her twin daggers.

A slight trace – weapons like daggers cannot leave much of a wound because of its thick flesh and muscles.

The female paid more attention to the powerful Koharu than it did to the other Lifers.

It is sleek and tricky. The blades aim for her neck. As they grew close, she put her head down to avoid them. A piece of her hair was cut and fell to the floor.

The male escaped the shower of bullets and went to help the female. Since they have scattered the prey, they just have to go and catch them.

Papat!

Pew pew!

The male ran away before reaching the Lifers when it received a signal of danger. A bullet came from the direction it was going to move in.

It came from the mountains. Park Jin Hyuk’s fire support. The Slayers were wary of the mountains. They will not fall to the same trap twice.

Pew!

Papat!

A few more shots fired, but the male put more distance between the mountain and itself to identify the direction of the bullets. It only needs 0.1 seconds to react.

“It’s a scam. How does it get out of the way?”

“It’s not looking to avoid the shots. It knows that it’s the target, so it’s moving its body to avoid the flow. It’s like a reflex.”

That is also why it is putting more distance. If it is close, it cannot react. It gets hit before it can. It needs to maintain the minimum distance in order to respond.

“Keep shooting?”

“It can’t attack the Lifers because you’re supporting them. If we weren’t here, I’m sure they would have been ripped apart already.”

It is difficult to detect the Slayer’s movement with the inferior senses of humans. People would die without knowing where the attack was coming from.

Cha Jun Sung put the Wolf Kill to his hand. Park Jin Hyuk is enough for the diversion. With the greatest amount of power, he must go out and work his body.

“Let’s just make them go back.”

It is important to show that they are not easy prey. Even if they cannot kill the Slayers, they could quit the mission.

    1. The plot right now is to save the sisters so they can get a bigger & better party.

      The plot overall is a race to be the first to reach the new levels, become even better, better equipped etc.

  1. As I see it, very unlikely that they’ll finish the rest of the mission, without fighting atleast one of the slayers seriously.

  2. As long as they can Reach the Goal of getting there New Team Members out of there i think that he would consider the mission a win.

  3. I dont see how the slayers can avoid the sniping. Most all modern sniper rifles fire rounds that are faster than the speed of sound, so they would not be able to hear of feel it until it is too late. They only thing is if they have line of sight on the shooter at all times. Even then if they could dodge in that time, why don’t they just keep dodging until they reach the enemy and just kill them? It seems unfeasible for them to dodge and block purely on instinct.

    1. I think what there doing is more of an Instinct to avoid danger that there feeling from the direction of the sniper. All snipers even the best might leak some amount of blood-lust (or killing intent). Which is what i think the Slayers are picking up on just in time to avoid the bullet enough to not be injured too much. Though that is just a guess and what you say Counts more often then not.

    2. Maybe sound travels faster in this universe, it’s not too farfetched to think that this is earth B, so to speak.
      Realistically speaking, given the bounds of our universe, you’re correct, avoiding a projectile that’ll hit you before you can hear the sound indicating it’s release is impossible.. unless you can somehow see it, but the female was said to have heard the bullet and blocked it on reaction.. Maybe this sniper rifle’s shots are slower than what you predicted, or sound travels more quickly, either or.

      1. sound travels faster through a solid object. this means the ground can transmit faster than the air. the problem with that is the slayer is move fast so no solid grounding to pick up a faint vibration and work out (vectoring) the target or even work out it was a weapon fired some distance away through all the other gunfire and movements.

        Also bloodlust isn’t something a sniper has, part of the breathing is to isolate yourself from emotions and unneeded movements. moving object is target, fire.

  4. “woman’s limit” !? I get that physically women will be weaker than men if v compare them at max fitness level, but this chapter makes me feel like the author’s sexist in real life

    1. its not being sexist, its just mentioning reality of the difference between a male and female physical composition…

      1. honestly, what’s the big deal in saying that women are physically weaker than men? it’s a well known fact and yet people get all prissy about it. women have their advantages — more flexible — and men are physically stronger.

    2. this is quite obvious if you have served in the military, or physically demanding positions such as the fire brigade etc.

      A long time ago I served in a military force, women had far lighter physical requirement such as the exercise requirements and tasks asked of their bodies in terms of endurance marching and pack weights. They also had specially designed packs which lessened the impact over general issue packs.

      Medical discharge due to knee or back injury were still, despite these major differences, many times more than their male counterparts. Still just as good at putting a ‘3rd eye’ on a target though.

  5. ‘The male ran away before reaching the Lifers when it received a signal of danger. A bullet came from the direction it was going to move in.

    It came from the mountains. Park Jin Hyuk’s fire support. The Slayers were wary of the mountains. They will not fall to the same trap twice.’

    ummmm nope. precognition in an elementary school brain. If a primary shot hasn’t been fired there is no chance to dodge without some bs failure of an explanation. they are not using explosive rounds and is out of the vision arc so speed and spotting are not an issue…. but the slower than explosive shell sword will save the day…. meh

      1. Maybe? For all we know, this is a plot point, and the whole thing is about uplifting humans and giving them psychic powers.

  6. thank you for the chapter..
    But I don’t know if this also happened with anyone but I can’t log in using my username and password, because reCAPTCHA doesn’t appear, so i have to make an account in wordpress.. i know the option is an improvement but in my case, it’s certainly not good… i prefer the log in before..

      1. Same thing.. Can’t log in using username and password.. reCAPTCHA is incorrect, it said but there’s no where to input any.. i can only log in using wordpress..

          1. oh, thanks that actually helped.. sorry ’bout the extra work.. but i decided to use my wordpress for different matter so i don’t want to use it in LNC if possible.. many thanks

  7. Thanks a lot for this chapter and for translating this awesome novel!!!! Your work is very much appreciated!!!! Baba bless you!!!
