I meets Little Debiru~! - Chapter 1
──The candle in that split up head lit up.
“Simplified sanctuary deployment complete.
In addition, in order to sanctify the bullets and evacuation for the target’s accompanier
A certain amount of time will be deployed before the process begins.
However, if the accompanier does not evacuate on time, they will be considered as collaborators of the target and will be included in the target for elimination from now onwards.”
With the wording that I do not know why it sounded so robotic, the lid of the face of the thing that was like an old man closes. At the same time, a sound like something that was being loaded echoed from his right hand, as a black tube stretched out of his palm then cracked in two. Wow, he looks like a proper Transformer robot.
“…… Hey… What the h**l is that…?”
In front of such a surreal development taking place, I was standing there just watching it with a dumbfounded expression plastered on my face. In place of the hands of that old man, which had dissected right in front of me, I could see – a cylindrical-like object that looked incredibly heavy.
There was a small cut at the tip of it, and a thread-like groove was engraved on the inside.
“No matter how you look at it, it’s definitely a gun or a rifle, isn’t it…? Yes, without a doubt, or rather, this is not the time to ask myself such questions!”
Without knowing I actually understood and confirmed that thing with my conscience, but the fact, the reality that I, we are going to be attacked by that ‘thing’ remained as the unchanging truth, even though this development seemed incredibly unrealistic. The sense of crisis creeping up on my back is real. After some thoughtful thinking, I looked back at the junior who is yet to utter a single word till now.
“Yoimachi-san, for the time being we are fleeing this spot!” “Shimono-sempai, run away from here! I will take care of this situation!”
The two voices overlapped each other perfectly. For a moment, the air flowing on the top of the river bank hardened, and I curled my eyes involuntarily.
…..Now, here’s a million-dollar problem. What is this girl talking about in this situation?!
With me involuntarily stunned right up to my a*s, the girl with the stature of an elementary school student took one step forward and looked up at that thing that was disguised as an old man. She seemed to have been trying to maintain a calm attitude, but an opponent with a gun embodied within his right hand would definitely be very scary. Her petite body was shuddering lightly when looked at closely. Even so, Yoimachi-san came in front of me with her small back facing towards me, as if to say ‘leave everything to me’ since I don’t look that dependable.
“Am I an idiot to do that!? Also, what the heck are you thinking! Let’s leave ASAP…!”
“But that person’s aim is… kyaa!”
Yoimachi-san, who was trying to refute me by looking back towards me, was carried up on my right shoulder without me acknowledging any of her questions. I then grabbed her bag with my left hand. In the middle of the action, my own bag fell off my shoulders, but there was no time to pick it back up. There’s only a textbook and a cell phone in it anyways. Well, I’ll just collect it later. Let’s do this! Judging in a moment, I turned right, kicked the ground and started running.
“We are getting the h**l out of here! Hold on tight!”
“Huh? But Shimotsuke-senpai! That’s aiming just for m…”
“You’ll bite your tongue if you speak, so shut it!”
While screaming at the top of my lungs, I desperately ran down the river bank. As expected from the body of the elementary school student, the weight was much lighter than I had expected. I could hear a gory sound coming from behind me, but I could not afford to look back at it at all.
I just hope that it’s not a gun, I sure hope it’s not a gun, even if it is a gun, I hope he doesn’t shoot that gun!
The next moment, whilst I continued my chants within my head, a loud sound echoed from behind.
“The perception of the accompanying person is now reevaluated as a target,
Target of concern has now been increased to two.
After the warning shot,
proceeding to exorcise.”
“Geh. That guy really shot at us!”
“As I am telling you! Please let me down already! …Ah, and also after that… Umm…”
“…… Please don’t hold my a*s… so roughly.”
“Ah… sorry! but you need not worry! I will not get excited over a little girl like Yoimachi-san! So rest assured, you’ll be fine!”
“Gyaaa, RATHER THAT JUST MAKES ME EVEN MORE CONSCIOUS ABOUT IT! For the time being, put me down!”
“Absolutely NOT! But well, even if we continue running straight ahead, I can’t see any other place to hide. —— Alright! Let’s get down to that river!”
