Wu Yan put on his clothes before he adjusted Kurumi’s blanket so she can sleep better. He covered her lustrous body with the blanket and he nodded in a satisfied manner.
He gave her a light peck on her forehead after brushing aside her bangs. It’s like Kurumi can feel this, she wrinkled her nose and she tilted her head a bit before she fell back into her peaceful sleep.
It’s hard to imagine that this cute sleeping girl can get crazy when you’re not being careful. He shook his head and he headed towards the door.
Fraxinus, control room…
The members in the control room are busy analyzing the data they got from the fight in the zoo. Any information they can gather will be put to use in their efforts to save more spirits. It’s not every day that you can get 4 spirits in one place and see them in action. They are going to be very busy watching and reviewing the footage they have of the fight.
The objective here is to find any and all information that can be utilized in the future. It would reduce the risk of harm for both side not to mention increase the chances of successfully pacifying a spirit.
Naturally, Kotori is present as the commander of Ratatoskr. She’s stable after Wu Yan sealed her powers. Although she still needed more rest, she’s here because she felt more at home helping spirits than resting in bed.
She can also raise the morale of the personnel working around the clock by just being here. It’s better than dying of boredom in bed.
“Oh, the commander is using her powerful gaze on me, I feel so invigorated!”
If you ignored his personality, this handsome man known as Kyouhei Kannazuki would have no problems scoring it with the ladies. However, he is running his mouth off like a hippotamus and dancing around the room like a monkey, needless to say, this destroyed his image and reputation as a handsome man.
He might be hyped to do some work but since he’s the second-in-command, he had relatively little to do when there are no spirits which would explain why he can be so lax as to dance around the office like a clown.
Kyouhei is starting to get on Kotori’s nerves. Her veins started bulging near her temple, it might be his voice or it might be Kyouhei’s dancing, either way, Kotori’s not happy right now.
She snapped, with a snap of the fingers, two burly men walked in and they grabbed Kyouhei.
Kannazuki Kyouhei pleaded for mercy.
“Commander, please, spare me since I have been working really hard!”
Kotori told him off with an emotionless face.
“Since you’re so energetic, why don’t you go dig a hole and then fill it back up again. I order you to do that for a day!”
Kyouhei couldn’t be happier, the burly men escorted him out while he cheered out loud.
Wu Yan made way for the two burly men since he didn’t know what that’s about nor did he want to know. He entered the room while his lip twitched. He knew better than to ask Kotori what happened but he still entered her crosshairs.
Kotori spotted him and she clicked her tongue.
“Don’t you have to tend to Kurumi?”
Wu Yan’s not sure whether she’s displeased with him or Kurumi. It’s probably something to do with both of them so Wu Yan shrugged.
“She’s awake and she appears fine. I put her back to bed and I came over here to check up on some stuff…”
“And she didn’t cause any trouble?”
If Kurumi wanted to, she could probably do extensive damage inside Fraxinus. Wu Yan fervently objected Kotori’s proposal to put cameras in and around her room. He did this without any ill intent and he’s thanking himself for being so thoughtful of Kurumi’s feeling. If he didn’t object, the surveillance team would probably have a lot to talk about when they went off duty. Worst-case scenario, their pants-off dance-off session might have been broadcasted in the control room.
Wu Yan awkwardly laughed and he continued.
“Kotori, I have sealed her powers with the sealing bracelet, I don’t think she can cause any more trouble for us.”
The control room turned silent.
“Kurumi put on the sealing bracelet?”
Kurumi is both gleeful and shocked.
Everyone stared at Wu Yan with widened eyes.
Wu Yan is not comfortable with the tense mood.
“What’s with those eyes? Is there something wrong?”
“How did you do it?”
Kotori asked the question on everyone’s mind. Everyone here is aware just how hard it is to communicate with Kurumi let alone pacify her. A person who can appease such a spirit appeared, of course, they wanted to know how he did it.
“Even if you ask me…”
Wu Yan smiled and he continued.
“I don’t know how to answer…”
Kotori stared at Wu Yan for a bit before she turned towards Reine.
“What does the spirit analyzer say?”
Reine looked at her screen.
“It’s true, Kurumi’s spirit signature is completely gone, the chances of sealing her powers are above 90%, he’s telling the truth.”
Everyone in the control room hurrayed. Kotori released a sigh of relief and she smiled.
Kurumi is a very vexing target for them. She’s not afraid to kill when provoked, she’s also mentally unstable, she has a kill count of at least 10,000, Ratatoskr has never been successful in their efforts to placate her until today.
Granted, it’s only reasonable that they are overjoyed when someone solved their biggest problem for them.
They are all looking at Wu Yan with eyes of admiration.
