Christina and I rushed to the corridor in panic, only to find people covered in blood.
Their faces were bloodlessly pale, as if they had been dead for a long time.
I realized they were zombies.
“Close the door!”
I grabbed Christina’s hand and quickly ran back to the room, slamming the door shut.
Now we’re safe – fortunately, zombies can’t open the door.
“Fu fu fu”, I had been thinking about countermeasures in the previous world for this kind of epidemic, so I’m familiar with this situation..
“Help me! Move the furniture over to block the doorway.”
“Ehhh, zombies can’t open the door——”
Gacha. (sfx: door unlocking)
I looked back after hearing the sound of the lock and saw a zombie’s face through the crack between the door and its frame.
I gave the zombie a roundhouse kick to send its face flying. Then I quickly closed the door and grabbed the doorknob hard.
“Quick! Get the furniture!”
How could zombies open the door? !
Christina moved the furniture in the room to form a barrier before the door.
The doorknob was also hard blocked by the furniture. I can rest assured… Crack!
I can’t believe it.
A zombie stretched its hand through the crack between the door and its frame.
“Oh no, it appears that the furniture won’t hold for long.”
Destroying doors is against the zombies’ rules!
“No no no, why, how could it be?” (Sid)※
“You shouldn’t be surprised. They are stronger and faster than normal humans. They also retain some fragments of their memory from when they were still alive.” (Christina)
I finally noticed that.
They were not regular zombies, but super zombies.
Let me explain what super zombies are.
Mob zombies were undead, but they were slow and mentally retarded, so they were just small fries.
But if they were just that, Americans would have wiped them out with machine guns and rocket launchers.
Just like the Samurai Warriors series.※
So super zombies, the enhanced version of zombies, appeared.
They are both agile and powerful, and can even attack the US military as groups with the help of their own bits and pieces of human intelligence.
As a result, the US military, even with their machine guns and rocket launchers, encountered much trouble with these super zombies.
Eventually, even the American soldiers evolved and got some new abilities.
“Wh, why…” (Sid)
“The Doem Faction is to be blamed for this. They gave candies to the citizens claiming they are “pray for victory” candies. People who ate the candy became like this the next day.”
“Have you eaten any?”
“I only eat candies produced by the Mitsugoshi Company. ‘Special Beauty Drop DX which shows inside glamour of women in battles’, 10,000 Zeny per.”
“I see. Special Beauty.”
The original price is only 10 Zeny.
“Those super zombies are very strong. Once caught by them, even elite magic-swordsmen can’t escape. If they surround us, we will be finished.”
As we were talking, the pounding against the door got louder, and the crack got larger.
There were at least 30 zombies outside.
What could a mob characters do under this situation? Shouting “No, help me, ahhhhhhhhhhh” while running away by himself? …There must be something else I could do before running away?
Anyway, if we stayed here, we would die like mob characters.
“We’d better escape quickly.” (Sid)
“Exactly… Then our destination is the Oriana branch of Mitsugoshi Company.” (Christina)
“Mitsugoshi Company? Why?”
“It is said that Mitsugoshi Company are protecting urban residents, but I’m not sure whether it’s true. Maybe the residents have all been killed.”
“But we have no other choice.”
Mitsugoshi Company should be fine.
But depending on the situation, once the anti-Doem Faction broke into the capital, death would be unavoidable.
It was obvious that people would get infected once bitten by the zombies.
“The number of Zombies outside the window seems to be decreasing. Let’s jump out.”
Christina looked back at me and asked as she stepped on the windowsill.
“Sid-kun is currently in the Royal Capital Bushin Style Group 7th class?”
“I’m in the 6th class.”
“6th class… but your kicking techniques are excellent, so you will definitely move up a class soon.”
Christina’s face darkened at first, but she instantly gave me a smile while trying to gloss over it.
Well, the Royal Capital Bushin Style Group 6th class is still at the bottom of the bunch, so it’s unavoidable that she was feeling pessimistic.
“I’m in 2nd class, so let me carve a way.”
It took her only a year to get to the 2nd class – she’s awesome. She didn’t look like a mob character.
Following Christina, I jumped out the window.
