Holistic Fantasy Chapter 125: A showdown over 1 km away



The sniping caused the car to drift out of control as the car screeched from the sudden braking. The noise echoed throughout the dark rain.

 

“Ah—!”

 

The driver wasn’t prepared for this sudden attack. He used all his skills to keep the car from hitting obstacles as he turned the steering wheel. He was also crying and yelling in panic.

 

Seitenshi buried her head in Noah’s chest. She couldn’t handle this as evidenced by her anguished look.

 

Noah was the only one who had a leveled head under this desperate situation. He hugged Seitenshi with one arm and he grabbed the driver with his other arm.

 

Noah got into a stance and he kicked the limousine’s roof.

 

Bam

 

The roof immediately gave away as he made a huge hole in the limousine.

 

Fwip

 

A figure dashed out from within the car.

 

The limousine hit a hard wall and the front of the limousine immediately became a lost cause, parts and metal scraps scattered everywhere.

 

Boom

 

The limousine then exploded into a molten mess of chemical fire and metal shrapnel.

 

Screech

 

The other escort cars stopped and Yasuwaki Takuto’s bodyguard corps rushed towards the explosion scene while screaming like unprofessional bodyguards.

 

Noah landed with both Seitenshi and the fainted driver in his arms. He landed gracefully although he is already drenched from the heavy rain.

 

Noah looked at the building that had a red flash just a short while ago.

 

Combining the sniping attack and the weird red flash just a brief moment before the attack actually landed, it was highly probable that someone sniped at them from that building.

 

The assassin that tried to snipe Seitenshi is probably still in that building!

 

He saw another flash of light as his superhuman senses kicked up.

 

Swish

 

He took out his gun and he fired without hesitation, he acquired his target in no time at all and he fired when he saw the shot.

 

Bang

 

His black bullet flew at supersonic speed as it charged straight for the building.

 

En route, the trajectory of the bullet met with the sniper rifle bullet coming from the tall building.

 

The two bullets collided in the air.

 

Tang

 

Statistically, this impossible shot is so unlikely it should have been impossible given the circumstances. Yet, Noah did just that as the two bullets deflected each other away.

 


 

“You’ve got to be kidding me.”

 

With an Anti-tank sniper rifle gun in her hands, the young cursed child’s burning red eyes shook with shock.

 

She was well over 1 km away from them.

 

Her sniping skill is obviously very polished as she can confidently hit a target over 1 km away.

 

This is why her handler treated her with such importance.

 

The young lady assumed that she was the only one in this world who can pull off something like this.

 

However, the scene she saw caused her to revise her assumptions.

 

Moreover, from what she saw, her opponent outclassed her.

 

He spotted her from a kilometer away, with little preparations available, he fired a shot that targeted not her, but the bullet she fired. He thwarted her attack with apparent ease.

 

This isn’t on the level of 100% accuracy, this is just an inhuman level of skill.

 

Bang

 

While she was temporarily stunned, her enhanced visual and auditory senses picked up on the tell-tale signs of a gunshot. Normally, a human would have been shot just like that.

 

A gunfire!

 

An alarm went off inside her, feeling a threat to her life, she moved her head away without hesitation.

 

The shot obliterated her sniper scope, her eye would have been done in the same way if she didn’t move in time just now.

 

The sniper scope exploded into fragments of plastic, metal, and alloy.

 

The ensuing force also blew the sniper rifle away from her hands. It was a shot that rivaled her sniper fire in firepower.

 

She had proper control over her sniper control as well. In the end, she got sent into a tumble because of this attack.

 

“Ugh…”

 

Groaning, she used her trembling hands to grab her sniper rifle and she charged straight for the exit. She took the stairs.

 

Bang Bang Bang Bang

 

Four more devastating bullets landed behind her, blowing four impressive holes in the wall near her.

 

Had she delayed her escape, the four bullets would have perforated her.

 

“Hah… Hah… Hah…”

 

Wheezing from the pressure and stress, she tried to steady her breathing. Her back was already drenched from sweat, it didn’t help that her panic and sense of crisis gripped her when she was running for the stairs.

 

Her red eyes are still shaking with shell shock. She trembled while hugging the sniper rifle in her arms. She looked at the four holes that narrowly missed her and she hugged her rifle tighter.

 

“What a scary person…”

 


 

At the same time, Noah who used his exceptional senses to first block, then disarm, and then pursue the assassin, emptied all 6 bullets in his gun before he stopped.

 

He slowly opened his eyes and he squinted his eyes at the tall building in a distance.

 

“That aura, that was definitely a cursed child.”

 

Because he was too far away, he didn’t immediately identify the assassin as a cursed child.

 

After he picked up on the fluctuations in the environment caused by a cursed child using her Gastrea power, he finally identified the assailant as a cursed child.

 

No doubt it, that was a cursed child!

 

“Seitenshi-sama—!”

 

Yasuwaki Takuto and his retinue finally arrived near Noah.

 

Seitenshi is still shaking from fear, she grabbed Noah’s shirt with a pale face.

 

Noah patted her back and he placed his remaining hand on her smooth glistening shoulder. He removed her from his chest and he looked into her eyes.

 

“It’s okay now, don’t be afraid.”

 

“N-n…”

 

Seitenshi nodded but her mind is still out of it.

 

She exhausted her mental energy with the attack just now.

 

“Noah Dreyar!”

 

Yasuwaki cried out in shock when he saw Noah holding a weakened Seitenshi in his embrace.

 

“Unhand Seitenshi-sama at once!”

 

Noah ignored Yasuwaki. He continued patting Seitenshi until she calmed down.

 

Yasuwaki Takuto was yelling and screeching in jealousy and rage for quite some time after this.
