“Can you see? Is it working?”
Doctor Chan Wu excitedly rubbed his hands and leaned his face closer to Bin, more than necessary, in fact. His twinkling eyes were stared fixedly at the youth’s face, or more precisely, his new artificial eye. Unlike the silver prosthetic arm, Bin’s new eye looked identical to the real one but it functioned a bit differently.
“There’s a lot of stuff going on.”
“Of course there are! Hahaha” Chan Wu was beaming with joy and jumping on his chair like a little kid. Emilia too, was faintly smiling, she was relieved that the process of implanting the eye- which is none too easy- was smooth-sailing and utterly void of any complication.
“Once we’re done with this… unnecessary introduction, I’ll take you to him.” Bert swept his eyes across the six of them, falling lastly on Cecile.“But I’ll take only you.”“The whole team must be close to the target.” Coldly said Iris, snorting and crossing her arms.“I don’t care. I know what happened in the desert and I’m not taking potential enemies to him. Let’s just say I’m afraid for their lives…”“What’d you say?!” Cecile burst out in anger, her hands balled into tight fists and her Mana fluctuating in the air.“Mister Bert
“Che! Why didn’t you let me pay?”Jasmine, just like earlier, stubbornly insisted on paying for all the clothes but she was ignored. Bin handed the black credit card Paul provided him and paid for everything. In the end, he bought some of the clothes he liked and, though reluctantly, did the same for everything Jasmine picked. As much as he didn’t like to admit it, the girl had a good and fashionable sense and everything she picked for him was suitable and good-looking.He was also to get rid of the ugly headband, replacing it with a normal black hat that did a good job in covering the hole in his forehead. Technically, there was no longer a hole as Emilia and Chan Wu filled the two sides with a solidified substance that slightly resembled his skin color, nonetheless, it remained awfully conspicuous and
“You look… different.”It took Elise a minute or so to calm down and thoroughly scrutinize her brother. Though she didn’t notice that one of his eyes was actually artificial, it was a different case for the silver prosthetic arm, which only the hand portion of it was visible.“You do too.” Bin chuckled and leaned his head closer.Elise’s hair had grown taller and she looked more mature and beautiful. Although they were twins and definitely had similar eyes and noses, Bin couldn’t help but sigh. Yes, he wasn’t ugly, but he wasn’t handsome either. His sister, on the other hand, looked prettier every day and though she refuses to admit it, it was clear that she started to take care of her appearance. He even spotted s
And So, Elise started living in Bin’s apartment, along with Bert, Akane and Iris. Fortunately, she didn’t have to live with the rest of her teammates… in fact, each member can live wherever he or she wants but only as long as they are relatively close to each other so they can respond quickly if there is an emergency.Bin returned to school but he didn’t apologize to Hyeon, who he had beaten half-dead and secretly stole his inborn ability.Ever since his ‘discharge’ from the clinic, it could be said that Bin’s relationship with Melissa, Rika, and Jasmine became much better. He no longer shunned them but he also didn’t go out of his way to greet them. Basically, it was either Jasmine or Rika who would walk up to him and start a conversation, though it was mostly regarding boring and time-wastin
Jack, just like Elise, has recently joined the Omega Team of Abyss, but it was entirely his choice. He had to choose between confinement or working so he chose the latter, clearly. Though young, he’s one of the handful of people who survived after battling Queen, going as far as inflicting one or two wounds to her before he was defeated.Essentially, he is a scientist before a magic-user so even though his ability is particularly strong, he’s not a good fighter. Nevertheless, he managed to survive near-fatal hits and was later captured by Abyss, questioned months before he was finally released.Finally, he had time to pay a visit to Emilia, who was his ex-boss and a close friend of his. It was none other than she who saved him twelve years ago and offered him a job in the Immortal Facility. Of course, he was forced to commit unim
The boy and girl soon reached the classroom and got seated at the back row, as usual. Melissa shamelessly stuck close to Bin but her expression remained the same; it was unusually cold and utterly void of the kind smile she commonly displays.Eventually, Bin couldn’t hold back his curiosity and ended up asking her.“Is he an enemy of yours or what? You look scary.” He ended the sentence with a content chuckle, slightly happy to see the girl in a bad mood.“As a close friend of mine always says… it’s none of your business.”“Oh?”Bin grinned and jerked his head forward, his eyes practically glued to her
“That’s it?”Bin thought it was something more serious than just an unrequited love, which is why he offered to help Melissa. While he doesn’t like her constant fake act, he doesn’t hate her as much as before. She didn’t help him and showed genuine commitment in aiding Jasmine and Rika… it was clear that she really cared about her friends.Surprisingly, however, Melissa wasn’t troubled by family-related affairs but was actually annoyed by Anwar’s persistence.“If she doesn’t like him then why doesn’t she reject him?”“Yes yes, that would be the best move, would it not?” Emilia was busy looking at samples of Bin’s crystallized blood when she heard the door slide open, though she didn’t deign to check who it was. After all, except for her, only her colleague Chan Wu would come.Seconds passed yet there was no greeting from her friend so, finally, Emilia jerked her head backward and glanced to the side. The first thing she saw was a girl with raven-black long hair and a dress of the same color; She was standing a couple of paces away and looking at Emilia was an unreadable expression.The ex-Head Scientist didn’t even speak… in fact, she didn’t realize what she’s doing, her body simply moved on its own and hugged the girl.“Elise! My daughter! You’re back. You’re finally back.”
