The intermittent sound of someone pressing a button sounded.
Though, rather than calling it sounded, it was him who made the sound.
A portable game console was in his hands, and a woman was looking at me through the screen.
“I-it’s not like I like you or anything!”
He removed the game cartridge with a sigh and tossed it.
“Ah! What are you doing!”
“What the fuck do you mean with that. What is that.”
“ What ‘what is that’, it’s a love simulation game!”
“And why are you forcing me to do it.”
“That is… you know?”
“What is ‘you know’ supposed to mean.”
“A captain should have some attention from girls too.”
This was the result of looking at the game she recommended since she had too much free time.
There had been no contact from headquarters, and the only information broadcasted by the TV station was the government’s emergency broadcast.
However, they had to stay here as long as they had this mission, and he had no intention of abandoning it until he realized that everything was completely collapsed.
They had brought a big table in front of the chair, which he had been sitting on since yesterday, and a parasol taken from a hardware store adjacent to them. The woman was sitting across the table.
He put in the game cartridge and the game started.
It was a game from the currently popular anime “Cheering Squad God Vine”.
By using various kinds of aircrafts, he defeated the enemy, though the middle part was quite interesting.
The scene where Glick, who was their friend, changed sides and became the enemy, and the protagonist, Jisa, defeated him, that he was playing right now was said to be the best in the game.
Fortunately, there was a battery charger that could be used, so he had brought a lot of batteries from the electric shop to use them.
There were tons of video games, so he thought that he wouldn’t be bored for some time, but…
“Captain! I. Have. Nothing. To. Do!”
This woman wouldn’t give him any time.
The barren exchange of the words “I’m bored” and “Who cares” had been continuing for a while now.
He paused the game with a sigh, looked at the woman, and threw the game console under the chair where he had thrown the other game cartridge earlier.
“If you’re that bored, play the game you wanted me to play.”
The words the woman said were completely different than what he had expected though.
“Captain. Since that game is for guys, have fun~ It’s not fun in the least for girls to play, you know? For a girl to play a game of falling in love with a girl… haha.”
The woman held back a laugh while saying “well well” and shaking her head.
Who the heck is this person?
He let go of the urge to shove the pistol in her mouth and shoot, but he was mature and kind, so he only pinch her cheek as hard as he could.
He stretched her cheeks until her face turned into a triangle before he let go with all his strength.
“Did. You. Not. Say. That you were bored!”
He was seriously doubting her mental age.
God does not give two gifts, but in exchange for her extraordinary talent for shooting, a stairway to adulthood wasn’t prepared for her.
There was nothing to do about it now but to lament.
At that time, the sensor gave off an intermittent beeping sound.
Leaning out from the rooftop, he saw that it was a car in the parking lot.
Since it didn’t give off any sound, it might be an electric car.
Zombies shouldn’t be driving cars, so it was probably humans.
The electric car stopped in the parking lot, and the driver, seemingly a man, climbed out of it.
“It’s a man…”
He gave off a lean and somewhat sickly impression.
Still, his face was that of a middle-aged man, and he would probably receive passionate gazes from women.
“Woah, Captain! Amazing! It’s a hot guy! A hot guy!”
He pushed the woman’s head and started talking to the man.
“Are you a civilian? The country is, unfortunately, using this place as its base. No Trespassing.”
The man looked in his direction, and waved with a grin on his face.
He couldn’t read his thoughts.
“...Can’t you hear me?”
After he asked again, the man raised his voice.
“Is it alright if I go in here?”
He became pretty frustrated.
Regardless of him saying “No Trespassing”, he asked, “is it alright if I go in here?” It was illogical.
On the other hand, however, he had a bad feeling about this.
It was an itching feeling of insects crawling all over his body.
Whenever an indescribable sensation hit you, it usually meant it was life-threatening.
Right, this sensation was fear.
“Hmm… With this much, the knife would roughly make one rotation, huh…”
The man stretched his hand in their direction as he muttered something.
“About 6-7 meters maybe?”
However, because warning bells rang throughout his body, he somehow knew that he was trying to kill them.
The woman also seemed to notice it because her expression hardened.
“Hey, kill him.”
The woman headed for the sniper rifle.
In that moment…
The man could see the upper body of the woman from the parking lot.
Since the distance to the shopping mall wasn’t that high, the height of the rooftop was about 6-7 meters.
The man made a strange sound as he threw “something”.
The “something” glistened in the sunlight.
The light was somehow divine, and it was because of that light that his judgment was delayed for a moment.
It was a knife.
At the same time he uttered those words, the man’s knife pierced the side of the woman’s torso.
Her knees buckled.
The blood scattered over the ground, and the woman tumbled down.
It all happened in an instant.
The noisy woman turned peaceful in front of him.
