Chapter 396

And then it happened . In that split second after Jegyll’s attack, Karman fired his Giga Buster, immediately evaporating the lower half of Jegyll’s body .

As she lay there in shock, Karman thrust out his fist like the jaw of a dragon . He was going to deal the final blow—he was right in front of her now .

……… .

…… .

The fist was in front of her eyes . Jegyll saw her own defeat—no, her own death .

(Why…why am I here? Fighting like this?)

It wasn’t fear that she felt, but bewilderment .

The ‘brain’ that was in the Bionoid had become active, and she was awakening to the free will that had been their originally .

Karman’s merciless attacks had caused much of the special cells of her Bionoid body to be lost . Many of her functions were shut off as the preservation of life became the main priority . The result was that the restrictions on Jegyll were weakening .

And so she now had doubts about her current situation .

As far as she knew, she had been in a meeting just a moment ago .

And yet, here she was, fighting with Karman—this was most confusing .

It was like she was in a dream . Jegyll desperately resisted the cloud that was muddling her mind .

And then—

—Jegyll? Is that you? Don’t give up . Regain your heart!!—

—As Jegyll’s consciousness resurfaced from the depths, Michelle’s prayer reached her .

Upon hearing those words, Jegyll’s consciousness returned completely .

(Yes . Yes . I was with Prime Minister Fudora and…)

The memories came back as if she were waking from a dream .

And then she remembered the things she had done when she wasn’t herself . She was able to read and understand the memories that were saved .

(Ahh… No, no one will believe me no matter what I say . I’m sorry, Michelle… I was not able to be of use to you…)

As the fist of death approached, the memories flashed in her mind .

She felt waves of regret and despair .

Prime Minister Fudora had used her . Then she had betrayed Michelle, which resulted in the current predicament .

But at the same time, there was a small hope .

She saw it while looking at Karman . He had defeated her . While she wasn’t at the same level as the Machinery Four, she was one of the strongest soldiers .

With such power, perhaps they could go and rescue Michelle .

With both regret and hope in her heart, Jegyll accepted her death…

“Damn it! I am not going to give up on the goal we strived towards for so many years! Not here!!”

…No, she could not accept it .

Now that she had awakened, she wouldn’t give up . And she didn’t need Michelle’s encouragement to reach that decision .

Jegyll used her Bionoid abilities to parry Karman’s Buster Knuckle . By sacrificing even more of her cells, she was able to protect the vital organs .

And so she did not die, but now her combat abilities were practically nonexistent .

The battle was over .

Now, she just needed to negotiate .

“That was supposed to be the finishing blow . Miss Jegyll, you are a tough one . ”

“Hmph . I could not allow myself to be killed . I remembered something . My old dreams and ideals . ”

“You really don’t want to die, then? And what is this about ideals all of a sudden? You tricked us and tried to kill us…”

“I wish I could explain everything to you . But there is no time . Would you please let me go until we rescue General Michelle?”

“Rescue? You betrayed us and now you’re trying to make excuses?”

Even Michelle understood how convenient it all sounded .

Still, she had to persuade Karman now, or she would not be able to help Michelle .

She had to get Karman to understand her position .

“You may not believe it, but I was being controlled . I want to rescue Michelle now, so will you not let me go?”

“Let you go? You would like that, wouldn’t you? As if we would believe such a story!”

Jegyll could not blame him .

Besides, Karman had a fierce personality and was known to be merciless towards his enemies .

And so she understood that there was no way that he would let her go now .

However, she had to try .

But then, something most unexpected happened .

As she opened her mouth in order to continue the desperate attempt, Karman suddenly looked up at the sky and froze .


She heard him mutter, and then she looked up and saw that a black shadow seemed to be spreading in the sky .

No, according to the analysis of her telescope feature, it was a universal strategic reconnaissance aircraft .

“That must be first lieutenant Hiragi…”

“Yeah . I know because I partnered with Hiragi many times . But why here…?”

Jegyll and Karman both seemed to forget the fight as they looked up at the reconnaissance aircraft .

Jegyll was thinking of taking advantage of the moment .

Karman wondered if it was going to interfere .

However, both of their expectations were blown away in the next instant .

‘Can you hear me? Jegyll! And Karman!’

Hiragi’s voice boomed so loud that the air seemed to shake .

Jegyll and Karman looked at each other .

Then Karman’s men and Reiz and his men stopped fighting .

‘I need you to stop and listen to me! That is what General Michelle wants!’

And like this, an unexpected visitor put an end to Jegyll and Karman’s battle .


Karman was with first lieutenant Hiragi once again .

“Ah, Mister Hiragi . So you were safe?”

“Yes . After telling General Michelle about your defeat, I received a different order from Jegyll by a secret line . It said to wait for the right time and then rescue you guys . But things changed once General Michelle started moving . I was told to follow you and gather information while offering support from the shadows . ”

Hiragi said as he glanced towards Jegyll . He added that there had been no need to offer support after all .
