Awakening - Chapter 119
Chapter 181 In The Middle Of The Crowd
In Kagoshima City, just South of the port there was a five-story building, the total area of the whole floor of the building was 500 hectares. This was building was the Japan Maritime Safety Administration Office in Kagoshima.
At this time, in an office on the third floor, several men were watching a detailed annotation of Kagoshima map and the surrounding waters as they discussed.
Suddenly, a knocking sound came from the door, then the person who knocked opened the door and came in. That person was a 30-something-year-old man, behind him, there was a middle-aged man in a gray suit.
“Hello, Deputy Head Yama.” A man, who recognized him as the Deputy Director of Tokyo Maritime Safety Administration Yama Akirajiro, immediately bowed toward him. The other two men also followed suit.
“I came over as soon as I received the news, what is the current situation, Department Head Eguchi?” After his young secretary closed the door, the Deputy Director of Maritime Safety Administration immediately asked.
The one called Department Head Eguchi immediately replied: “Because of the seasonal storms, there are a total of three ferries that went missing. A total of 124 tourists, including 98 Teikyo University students. The rest are common tourists. After days of continuous search and rescue operation, we have found two ferries, and a total of 83 people. Besides the more than ten people who have complications because of lack of food, the other conditions are not life-threatening. And now, all of them are in the hospital for treatment and recuperation. As for the other ferry, we are stepping up our search and rescue effort, and we should be able to find them soon.”
Hearing his reports, the Deputy Director frowned, “How could there be such a serious situation? There is actually more than ten tourists who have complications because of lack of food.”
“It’s like this. From the three missing ferries, one went to Yakushima Island, and the other two went to Amami Archipelago. Those students who have complications were in the boat to Amami. The reason for this to happen was because the distant to Amami is twice as far as the distant to Yakushima. Since the distant is far, the search and rescue area is too large, and it took us almost three days to find that missing ferry. Moreover, strictly speaking, we found that ship near the International waters.”
“What? The storm actually took them near the International waters?”
“Yes, the intensity, as well as the duration of the storm is very rare, second only to the one happened a decade ago. We also have a headache due to the oversized search and rescue area.”
“No matter what, you must find the last boat as soon as possible. We absolutely cannot let any visitors to have any accident. The top is very concerned about this thing, so they especially send me to understand the situation. I will immediately notify the Administration. I will ask them to send additional search and rescue helicopters over here. In addition, before you find that last ferry, try not to let the journalists know about it.”
Unexpectedly the situation is so severe, the Deputy Director’s eyelids could not help jump a bit.
Kagoshima and Okinawa are Japan’s well-known seaside tourists attraction. Although every year there will be multiple small Maritime Issues, they were generally not too serious. But this time, unexpectedly, many students and tourists were missing, moreover, they still cannot find some of them. If there were students who died in accidents because of this, the impact would be very large. He almost can see the scene where those reporters, who always took things out of context, standing in front of the Maritime Safety Administration Office to question why they did not notify the individual shipowners about the storm before it happened.
After walking to the Hotel room, Take Asasei failed to find Kazumi.
Where is she? Take Asasei made a call to her phone. But she found out that her phone was next to the headboard.
Did she go there? Thinking of this, Take Asasei immediately went out of the room.
Arriving at the beach on the Eastern front of the Hotel, sure enough, she saw the familiar figure of her friend quietly sitting on the beach.
She did not know if it was because of a mood swing, but she felt that the back of her friend showed some kind of ‘wrecked with guilt’ sign.
After quietly went behind her, Take Asasei suddenly covered her friend’s eyes with her hands.
“Guess who I am?”
She first thought that her friend would scold her for doing such a childish action as usual, but after a while, the girl whose eyes were covered by her hands was still motionless.
When she was surprised by this, suddenly, she felt her palms were wet.
Take Asasei did not dare to look at her tears stained palms and immediately went to the front to see her friend’s face, and then said something silly: “Are you crying?”
“No, I was careless and the sand went into my eyes.” Kazumi lowered her head and whispered a sentence.
Hearing her voice which was very different than usual, Take Asasei did not dare to ask anymore. This was the first time she saw her usually calm and rational friend behave like this.
Gently sitting next to her, Take Asasei did not know anything good to say to her.
After a while, she managed to say some words, “Kazumi, rest assured, your brother will come back safely.”
Kazumi stayed silent, just resting her face above her knees.
Take Asasei thought that the atmosphere was a bit too depressing, but she did not know how to comfort her friend other than to sit there with her.
After what seemed like a long time, Kazumi suddenly whispered a sentence, “I really regretted it now.”
She seemed to be talking to herself, so Take Asasei was not even sure if that sentence was directed at her or not. But she still asked, “What do you regret about?”
Kazumi slowly raised her head, “If at the time I insisted on being together, maybe I can still be with my brother, and we can face everything that happened together. Unlike now, where I can only wait for his news.”
“Kazumi, don’t think too much, your brother will be fine.” Take Asasei saw that her friend’s face was still stained with tears.
“Two days ago, I thought so too. But now, it’s already the fifth day. I’ve been telling myself that my brother will come back, but as time past, I could not help indulge myself in flights of fancy.”
Take Asasei had never seen this kind of expression from Kazumi. Her eyes were red as she tightly hugged her, and then said aloud: “It’s gonna be alright! Kazumi’s brother will come back safely. He is so fierce, so nothing will happen to him.”
Kazumi silently sobbed.
Chapter 181 In The Middle Of The Crowd (Part 2)
Someone has studied that, other than muscle ratio, women’s visceral function, and autonomic nerves were actually much better than men.
This was not just empty talk. When the Titanic sank in 1912, it was the world’s greatest tragedy. At the time, apart from those women lucky enough to board the lifeboats, there were other women who were forced to float on the ice-cold sea along with the men because the lifeboats were already full. In this same harsh condition, the total female survivors were actually much higher than men.
And in the face of a hopeless situation, although they will generally scream or faint, very few women would go crazy on the spot.
The food frenzy continued. But only to those who were eligible to participate in the competition. Namely, the male students who have considerable strength. Those female students could not even get close. At this time, with their splendid autonomic nerves and visceral function, these female students realized that what these boys were doing were utter madness and pure nonsense. But they did not have any way to prevent it. Or it should be said, they simply did not have the strength to stop them.
At this time, many of the female students saw the little girl and the foreign couple were trapped within the crowd.
The old couple has been pushed to the ground and was trying to get up. But the little girl was in danger of being trampled at any time.
Although a few girls wanted to take her out of there, the boys’ insane acts made them completely lose their courage to take a step.
They can almost imagine the horrible situation when the lovable little girl was trampled to the ground. Regarding this unpreventable tragedy, many of the girls have shut their eyes, too afraid to take a look.
Just then, suddenly a figure from outside rushed into the crowd at an incredible speed.
Soon, this new addition quickly disappeared within the crowd.
But a second later, the chaotic scene dramatically changed.
No one knew what happened. The girls outside can only see a student flew out from a crowd.
But that boy flew out instead of jumped out. These two words have absolutely different meaning. The biggest difference was the difference in height. Because when a person suddenly rose to almost three meters high from the ground and then fell down, it would be inappropriate to use the word jump.
Before that boy fell, another person flew out from the crowd the same way as him. And then the third one, the fourth one.
In addition to the one who flew up, there were also boys who were thrown out of the crowd at a horizontal angle. And some of them were thrown down to the ground like dominoes.
As the number of people in the crowd continued to decrease, the female students can clearly see the original source of this dramatic change. At this time, the students who were still skeptical about the content of their college magazine suddenly realized that the term “Human Weapon” was not a bit too outlandish.
At this moment, in the middle of the crowd, Lei Yin met no resistance. As long as there were people who stood in front of him, he kept throwing them out or knocking them down, without exception. This was the first time he used his internal force against ordinary people since he rebirthed in this body. If not for his heart who can always maintain a calm mind and somewhat reserved his action, all those people he encountered would absolutely meet a certain death.
Although he did not severely injure them, whenever he went, there will always be a loud scream followed by the sound of something fell on the ground.
After throwing out the last student away, he immediately hugged the crying little girl in his bosom.
After walking away from the crowd, he immediately checked the little girl’s body, to see if there were any trace of being stepped on.
“Kid, do you feel any pain?” After a brief second check, Lei Yin nervously looked at her.
“Lei!” The little girl threw herself into his arms, crying out loud.
Hearing nothing abnormal in her voice, he somewhat confirmed that she was ok. So to make even more sure, he immediately sent his true qi to unceasingly move in her body to check for her breath and pulse. After discovering that there was no blocked artery, he finally felt relieved.
Looking at those students who fell on the ground struggling to stand up, and their pair of frightened eyes, he felt a strong and intense desire to commit murder. He did not dare to imagine what would Amy’s young body turn into if she was trampled by those boys. If something really happens to this kid, not one of you can escape here alive.
When he walked to the front of those students while hugging the little girl, those students immediately took a step back involuntarily.
Lei Yin coldly looked at them, and then sneered, “Truly a touching scene.”
“Why did you do that?” A student loosened his cringe and said.
“This is a very good question.” Lei Yin said and walked toward him.
“What, what do you want?” That student immediately took a step back. But he soon began to regret not to immediately run, because as soon as Lei Yin arrived in front of him, he immediately kicked his crotch.
That boy immediately screamed and bent over, kneeling on the ground. Although his posture appeared as if he was kowtowing toward Lei Yin, his hands’ position was not quite right.
“What exactly do you want?” The lead student loudly shouted.
“I truly regretted it now, I shouldn’t have saved so many trashes like you.”
“You….” That student flew into a rage, but when he thought about how scary this guy was, he did not dare to rush forward.
At this time, the face of Akira Hiroshi came in front of Lei Yin and said, “Student Gennai, please stop this quarrel. Previously, they were just too hungry, so they became like this. Please stop arguing with them, okay?”
After coldly looking at those students one more time, Lei Yin and Amy went back to that elderly foreign couple.
If not for Amy who continued to cling to him, Lei Yin really wanted to flatten all of them.
Seeing the danger went away, other people slowly relaxed, but no one dared to pick up those scattered oysters and scallops on the ground.
