X-ray Is More Than I Thought Chapter 100 part1
100th chapter celebration: The day when Peccha-hina became Dere-hina
「Hey, Nanafushi! Did I not say to wait!」
Tamamushi yells while running.
She’s in the midst of her telepathic conversation with Nanafushi, however, it doesn’t seem like Nanafushi’s obeying her instructions.
「Mu? Muu, I see. Then there’s no other way」
Tamamushi who was enraged with Nanafushi listened to her reasoning and acknowledges it with reluctance.
「Suzuhara, Nanafushi has left the scene with Yuka under her wing. Though, Asahina is still there」
While running, Tamamushi delineates the situation.
Now that my ability has reactivated, I could peek inside Tamamushi’s mind. Therefore I would have known the situation even if I didn’t hear it from her.
It seems Nanafushi tailed Asahina into an abandoned factory and discovered that Yuka was there with her, but then there was a fight between humans, so she was quietly observing from aside.
Asahina is far from an ‘ordinary human’, is what Nanafushi thought, however, that was a miscalculation.
It’s Yuka’s existence.
Asahina said that she wouldn’t fight unless the opponent strikes first, but that was just an excuse for having to protect Yuka in the midst of the fight, which made it impossible for her to counterattack.
For that reason, Nanafushi slipped through the opponent’s gaps and went ahead to rescue Yuka.
Yuka couldn’t think about escaping and leaving Asahina behind.
Because Yuka had abandoned Asahina once before.
Even if Yuka knows that she is dead weight, she will never abandon Asahina again.
And that’s why she was screaming when Nanafushi was saving her.
Despite all the effort in slipping through the shadows, they were both exposed from Yuka’s screaming.
Troubled from her actions, Nanafushi decided that Asahina didn’t need to protect Yuka and knocked Yuka unconscious, leaving the scene.
She genuinely thought that Asahina would be fine but having to save both Yukan and Asahina at the same time would be an impossible task.
One of the reasons is Nanafushi’s physical traits.
Nanafushi is a loli girl who’s even more loli than the loli Tamamushi. No matter how much power she has in her, her body is still small.
Additionally, Asahina wouldn’t just obediently retreat, so she would have to neutralize her so that they could escape.
An unconscious Asahina and Yuka. Nanafushi’s body would be too small to handle both of them under such circumstances.
Carrying one body is an easy task, however, she could only drag the bodies if there were two. In addition, if she flies or jumps around, Asahina and Yuka might die as they’re bodies were not designed to withstand the impact.
Thus, the people who can get away was limited down to one.
There’s also another reason why she left Asahina by herself.
It would be an easy task for Nanafushi to knock them out, but there’s a reason why she couldn’t do it right now.
The reason is because she’s gotten too powerful.
Due to me cumming inside Tamamushi, her bug energy underwent a sudden power boost which also directs affects Nanafushi’s powers.
As a result, Nanafushi’s limiter was forcibly undone.
Nanafushi, who was designed to counter Kudan can continuously grow stronger as long as there is bug energy around her, which is very beneficial.
On the other hand, she cannot channel her own bug energy which puts her at a disadvantage.
In short, she’s good at simple things but not good at the nitty-gritty areas.
So, she generally prefers to avoid facing weak human beings.
Since she’s already bad at controlling her powers, after receiving such a powerful boost in power, it makes it even harder for her to adjust it.
If she miscalculates by even the sliver of hair when adjusting her powers, she could easily kill a person.
Since she was made to fight, Nanafushi wouldn’t even think much of it if she kills a person though. So that’s not what she’s concerned about.
It’s because she could potentially be sniffed out by the Nature Conservation Organisation or Kudan’s organization if she does end up killing someone. It would be very bad if that happens. That’s why Nanafushi chose to escape from battle.
Nanafushi’s way of thinking isn’t wrong. If I was in her position, I would do the same.
If the Nature Conservation Organisation or Kudan’s organization were to be involved in this case, then I thought we would have no choice but to fight them.
However, the other party was “just a human” and it was just a dispute between delinquents.
Then the best option is to rescue both Yuka and Asahina without increasing the commotion and withdrawing from there.
However, due to Nanafushi’s physical limitations, Asahina ended up being left at the scene.
So I guess we should rescue her.
Is what the current situation’s like.
「Do you know where Asahina is?」
「The bug that’s monitoring Asahina is still intact. So it’s not a problem」
「Where’s Nanafushi’s current position?」
「If it’s me then I know」
Asahina and Yuka are separated from each other, but the only one who can spot them is Tamamushi.
We shouldn’t have to worry about Yuka since she’s under Nanafushi’s protection, but I still want to send reinforcements just in case.
「Are you able to use your bugs to fly to Nanafushi?」
「That’s not a problem」
Tamamushi nods without hesitation.
「Alright. Then fly towards Nanafushi」
「Follow Tamamushi to group up with Nanafushi. Once you’ve done that, take refuge in Tamamushi’s house for the time being and be ready to take down Tamamushi’s house as soon as I return」
Rikka nods to my instructions.
I then saw Tamamushi running while raising her right index finger. A scarab like bug was riding on the tip of her finger.
Following Tamamushi’s signaling, the bug spreads its wings and flew up into the sky.
I called out to Rikka as soon as she tried to jump and follow the bug.
「Rikka, “your will is my will”. Relay what I’ve just said to Nanafushi」
Hearing me say that to her, Rikka’s eyes started to water, wearing a face like she was about to cry, but she immediately tightens her expression.
She replied with an energetic tone and like a bullet, Rikka dashed away in an instant.
Tamamushi who was staring at Rikka gave a snort in displeasure and turns her head away.
――Suzuhara Rikka. It’s frustrating, but that girl was the only one who’s received the Suzuhara surname from the man himself. I can’t match her. In the first place, for a tainted creature like me to be recognized and be called Suzuhara’s “family” would not even be funny even if it was a joke.
Tamamushi looking rather depressed seems like she’s accepted defeat in her heart.
Seeing Tamamushi all jealous and depressed is quite “arousing”, but it won’t be good for the morale when we’re about to enter enemy territory.
「Our opponent this time is “just ordinary humans”」
I muttered while running, grabbing Tamamushi’s attention, causing her to glance at me.
「Rikka has a good balance between both her offense and defense, however her base stats are too high. And her powers aren’t able to be controlled. So she might just end up accidentally killing her opponents if she’s against “ordinary people”. On the other hand, your physical capabilities are close with hers, but you can also utilize bug to search or attack at a medium to long-ranged distance without the aid of those abilities. In other words, you’re an all-rounder」
To my words, Tamamushi looked up at me with hopeful eyes and her cheeks dyed red.
Rikka tends to prefer straightforward attacks and is easily swayed by her emotions.
I utilized this information to use it against her and that’s why she lost to me.
If someone were to make fun of me, she would have killed that person without a second thought from rage.
Although different, she’s basically the current Nanafushi who’s unable to control her powers.
On the other hand, Tamamushi is not only good at close quarter combat but also proficient at searching and attacking enemies from a range through the use of her bugs.
Although her physical abilities are not lower than Rikka’s, she’s incredibly good as an all-rounder.
Though it does take time for her to move large insects around and the number of insects that can be manipulated at the same time is limited, it can be compensated by her “friends”.
And opposite to the hot-blooded Rikka, she puts up a front but is actually quite the scaredy-cat. In addition, her adorable appearance accompanied by her silver ponytail hair, green eyes and her growing breasts, it wouldn’t be too soon for her body to develop into a lewd one. On top of that, her pussy feels amazing.
She’s convenient in various means.
「You’re far more competent than you think you are. Your only drawback is that you’re not aware of that I guess」
「I-I am competent? ……Mufuhn♡」
Hearing me say that she’s competent has now made her grin from ear to ear while breathing out from her nose.
Like as is if her little depression phase was all a lie, the Tamamushi now has a flower blooming from her heart.
Tamamushi, because you are like this, scums like me can use you as much as they want. Be a little bit more wary about it please.
Her appearance is that of a loli, but she’s actually almost thirty.
