Assassinations, assassin and love doesn't mingle with each other... - Chapter 1
*Opens his eyes
Am I alive… Instead, where is this? Seems like a hospital?
I do remember I died, I didn’t?
I need to check my vitals and body.
I close my eyes and go through my body from within.
Strange… The length seems inappropriate. Breadth is … not toned, hearing … not sharp, skin sensations … below average, eyes … somehow good.
What is this body? It’s not mine.
What is going on?
I opened my eyes again and found a call button linked to the bed. I pressed the button, and a nurse arrived.
“Where am I?”
[*Nurse is scared]
“Hmm? What’s wrong?”
“Nyo, nyoho–thing. Ehm! But you are a boy, aren’t you? Then why do your eyes look so–“
“My apologies; I am not well aware of my situation. Give me today’s newspaper or anything, give me a record for what ha–. Hey, why is your face getting flushed red? Also, why are you holdin— never mind, call the doctor.”
And the nurse runs out of the room.
“Ugh, did she pee herself? Although the smell seems a bit fruity… don’t tell me, did she… I need to be careful with my sight and attitude. Not many could withstand it.
But now that I see…, this is definitely a boy’s body… I guess I should change my piercing gaze to a normal one.”
*Closes his ‘assassin’ eyes.
I need to assess my situation asap. If it is what I think, this might be a once-in-a-million chance to know.
*Opens into a typical ikemen gaze.
Know that emotion that managed to bring my, an assassin’s end.
Let’s see what I can do.
*Nurse arrives with the doctor
“I hear you have gained consciousness, but can you remember yourself?”
“…No doctor, somehow I am… I don’t recall anything.”
“Hmm, well, this was expected because of that accident.”
*Gives a medicine to smell.
It normalizes my nerves.
Strange, I don’t think any of these medicines had come for regular usage. It was still in the development stages, if I remember correctly.
“Do you feel good?”
“Yes, doctor. But those memories feel somehow blank… Somehow red… When I try to recall them.”
“I see. Don’t worry about it. Also, don’t strain yourself. Let it flow as you remember it slowly.”
“But doctor!” The nurse exclaimed.
“That must have been just some coincidence, nurse. Let it go.”
“But, that gaze wh–“
“Nurse! Let the patient rest.”
“Yes, doctor… (…And here I thought I found my fated one).”
“Ugh, an upturned bishounen eyes… It’s also good as it is… I shall leave you at this. (I need to control myself… once he is good, I can… ehehehe).”
*Exit nurse and doctor.
Scary …scary, what is that nurse. It felt as if I was on a hunting ground. What has this world developed into?
Ah … She didn’t bring a calendar.
Let’s call her again.
I rang the button one more time.
After a few minutes…
“Yes, ~ Kinguin Eita-san~ what do you need.”
“Can I get something to read nee-chan?”
“A~ng wai–wait for a second. We–will a newspaper do?”
“Brig–bright! For a residence of the nightlife such as –“
“Is this what is called an ikemen zone!”
What is this nurse talking about… are all girls like this? For what did I sacrifice my whole life…
“Thank you, neechan~.”
“If you need me for ANYthing, call me~ okay ~.”
“So, here’s my number~.”
“Ah, sorry, sorry, by mistake.”
“So, then Eita~kun~ talk to you later~.”
…. So this is the recent newspaper. I see, so it’s been 18 years from then, huh. Also, I am called Kinguin Eita… A Japanese, huh. Kind of reminds me of those two stupid disciples who taught me some Japanese words as they learned under me.
I never thought I would be Japanese. Nevertheless, I will learn this so-called love phenomenon this time before I die.
I stare at the window.
“When I woke up, it seemed noon, but now, it is completely dark. Probably nearing 8 at night if I consider the latitude and longitude of Nihon.”
As I try to get up from my bed. The siren rings out.
Suddenly a gas comes out of the air vents in the room.
“This world has progressed way too much to fool even an assassin like me. Or probably, it is this body which needs to learn discipline.”
I say it under my breath as I lose consciousness.
As I regain consciousness, I stay put and take notice of my surroundings with my eyes closed.
“He had enough strength to default the safety sensor attached to his hands. He is perfectly fine.”
“But he just woke up yesterday!”
“Ma’am, in this time, there is no need to worry about those things. We have advanced a lot from the past two decades.”
“That is true, but–“
I open my eyes.
As if I will lose this opportunity to escape this overpowered hospital!
Somehow, my speech is not like my usual self; is it the influence of this body’s mind on me?
“It seems you have awake.”
The lady comes towards me.
“How do you feel, Eita? I have decided to take you into my care for now.”
“What about my family?”
I have way less information at present. I have to be careful.
“I am sorry, but even with the medical advancements, we still can’t bring back a dead body to life. Even you were in a critical condition. If it was not for this madam, you would have died.”
Madam, so she is from a distinguished family.
“I am Yosora Kinguin. Let’s get along well. I have completed the paper works for your adoption. I saw your past… No, I was following your past achievements closely. The developer of the ‘un-supported chair.'”
“‘un-supported? ch— uhrrrrnnnngggg”
Suddenly something starts recollecting in the brain.
I managed to let out a scream.
“Stop it ma’am! He is still not good with his memory!”
“It’s okay. I won’t let Eita die. He is someone who has the power to bring about the next great revolution. Yes, just like at that time. 18 years ago on November 20th.”
A month after my death?
