Day 403

Day 403

Needs a TON of editing ~Miraclegrass

We gather information today as well today. 

I decided that I could not get the information I wanted from the Dining society, I decided to explore a deeper dark society.

I transformed using [Shape Transformation] as a temporary disguise, becoming an "Earth Dragon-newt - Earth Dragon nut" with a brown rock-like scale that exists in the desert. 

However you look at me, there is no way to recognize me, everyone else goes on a solitary trip while enjoying some sightseeing.

As it is, I had to go through high-valued information shops and some violently aggressive organizations. 

If the payment is good enough, there would be no trouble getting in there, but it seems that what they know is not all good. 

What did I think of that? I was left complaining after finishing the exchange for information. 

Apparently the organization was once scattered by a gang of the Earth Dragon people. Their response was to draw in and hide, only coming out depending on the deal available, he told me something I do not care about.

Meanwhile, in the hands of the members who followed me in from outside, a weapon was grasped, and there was murderous intent and hostility glaring from their eyes. 

They only number 18. Although they are all adult males, their ability is reasonable, but there should be no problem at all. 

I got the information I wanted there, but since it is unknown what is truth and falsehood, I will have to hold back for now.

There is no use, I had to deal with more misunderstandings and hostility. 

Since they even knew about every dangerous area, it would be troublesome to get around those places, while they were still arranging themselves to cover my blind sides, black-silver feathers were generated from my silver arms which were using [feather generation]. I shook my arms to pierce them with the feather arrows, all the while breathing steadily.

Since the pointed end of each [arrow feather] is harder, and sharper than steel when settled down, I pierced through their skull bone and stopped at the place where the brain was destroyed. 

It does not penetrate further with the momentum it has, since it keeps sticking where it pierced, so just a little extra blood flowed out. 

Just a snap and a breathless man fell down. 

Since it was quite a number of arrows, it became a proper sound, but not enough to make a resonating tone. Even if you listen for a while, there is no sign that someone was rushing over. 

[Early Search Operation Warning Network Phased Array Radar] had no response, so it is possible that nobody noticed them enough to destroy that part of the organization.

There may be other members, but I do not know about that. For the time being, if head and executive classes disappear, it will be the end of the organization. 

Anyway, afterwards I destroyed the evidence by eating corpse which had just become meat.

To be honest, because I had only eaten good things recently, I did not go into a blood bath or feel like eating the sweaty adult men.

Although I still ate them, they were not tasty, no, there was too much of a taste of saltiness, acidity and bitterness.

They each seem to be a bit of a damaged ingredient, well after the expiration date. 

Anyway, after the dead body treatment, I decided to collect everything we could sell, to a point. There is only one office in the underground organization and you get the results from the dark things left behind.

A mountain of money they must have taken from somewhere, a number of forbidden magic drugs strong enough to destroy a person, and armor and weapons that have a high-selling possibility. 

On that occasion, I also found books, etc. that describe the under-the-table deals for blackmailing, so it may be good to gather information using it this time. 

So let's immediately try to punish the civil servant that covered herself by taking a bribe under the cover of the tax.

If they are an official in the administrative agency, they may know something.

“四百三日目”

 今日も今日とて情報収集。


 表社会では欲しい情報が手に入らないと判断したので、より深い裏社会まで探っていく事にした。

 一応の変装として身体を【変身シェイプシフト】させ、砂漠に実在する茶色く岩のような鱗を持つ“地竜人アースドラゴニュート”となる。

   どこからどう見ても俺とは分からないだろうこの姿で、他の皆には楽しく観光してもらいながら、裏社会を単独で渡り歩く。

 それなりに評価の高い情報屋や、攻略者系暴力組織を幾つか巡る。

 金払いが良ければそこまでトラブルが発生する事は無かったのだが、それでも全てが全て聞き分けが良い訳ではないらしい。

 何を思ったのか、情報のやり取りを終えて外に出ようとしたら文句を言われた。

 どうやらその組織はかつて地竜人の一団に散々蹴散らされた事があるらしい。取引に応じたのもアジトに引き込む為だのうんぬん、とどうでもいい事を語られた。

 その間に外から入ってきた構成員の手にはそれぞれの得物が握られ、目にはギラギラとした殺意と敵意が宿っていた。

 数は十八。むさ苦しい成人男性ばかりだが実力はそこそこ程度で、全く問題ない。


 ここで欲しい情報は得たが、真偽不明になったのでそれは一端保留するとして。

 用が無くなり、勘違いにしろ敵対された以上は対処しなければならない。

 暴れられて周囲に騒動が知られても面倒なので、まだご託を並べる間に【羽毛生成】を使って擬態していた銀腕に黒銀の羽毛を生成し、腕を振って一息の間に一人残らずその額を放った【矢羽根】で穿つ。

 鋼鉄よりも硬く、鋭利な【矢羽根】の尖端は手加減したので頭蓋骨をアッサリ貫き、脳を破壊した所で止まった。

 勢いのまま貫通せず、突き刺さったままなので余分な血はほとんど流れない。

 ただドサリと息絶えたヒトが倒れた音が鳴った。

 数が数なのでそれなりの音にはなったが、響くほどでもない。一応耳を澄ましても誰かが駆けつけて来るような気配は無い。

 【早期索敵警戒網(フェーズドアレイレーダー)】にも反応は無いので、誰にも気付かれずに裏組織の一つを壊滅させた事になる。

 他の構成員もいるかもしれないが、そこまでは関知しない。とりあえず頭と幹部クラスが消えたのなら組織としては終わりだろう。


 ともあれ、その後はただの肉となった死体を喰らう事で証拠隠滅した。


 正直、最近は良い物しか喰っていなかったからか、風呂にも入らず汗臭い成人男性を喰うのは気が進まなかった。


 それでも喰ったが、不味くはないが美味くもない、いやちょっと塩っ気と酸味と苦みが強い。

 消費期限を過ぎて少し傷んだ食材みたいな感じだろうか。


 ともあれ、死体処理をした後は折角なので売れる物は全て回収する事にした。裏組織の事務所の一つなだけあって、後ろ暗い物事の成果が手に入る。

 何処からか奪ったような貨幣の山、ヒトを廃人にさせる禁制魔法薬の数々、高く売れそうな武具。

 その際、幾つか気になる相手との裏取引を記した帳簿なども見つかったので、今度はこれを使って情報を集めるのもいいかもしれない。


 と言う訳で、早速税金の一部を着服しているという文官を突いてみる事にしよう。

 行政機関の職員なら、何かしら知っているかもしれないしな。
