"As long as we continue to move with all four members, it shouldn't make sudden attacks. The moment it appeared was when Private Herald and I were alone, and just a moment ago when we got the door open. It fears us. The corpse it displayed on the second level was to set fear into our minds, this goes for that horrible laugh as well it's trying to confuse us and weaken our formation. The weaker they are the stronger the bluff will be."
The True Group members consisted of many different nations. Each fighter's motive and goals drastically differed. His own life did not matter in the face of God's mission.
Many of the children could be seen trembling. Up until today, the drill instructors of Ark had always been next to them. The drill instructors were to be feared, but at the same time they gave the children a sense of safety.
"Han, I really dislike you, but I'm glad to see you safe like this. As you've said, I don't have the strength to kill nor see someone be killed in front of me."
"Damn, there are inspectors wherever we go. There is an inspector at all the drill halls. I think I'll go crazy. It's not like I could beat them up either. What are you guys eating?"
Han quietly called out to Jose. The fire type psykers put their strength together to form their last fireball. As the fireball sparked, all the Elu hunters' positions became bright as day.
Ironically, the air became less stifled. The children were able to come together after finding a common enemy in the sergeant. Everyone became livid as they talked behind the sergeant's back with one another.
Everyone competed against one another for the sake of coexisting without ending up with the short end of the stick.
Han looked toward Laocha. Laocha's body was densely packed with mostly muscles. He was like the smelted blade of a knife.
The medic applied a splint onto Han's arm. The instructor blankly looked towards Han.
In his country, people would turn to thievery to find something to eat. There are so many things to be done to save these people, yet these people are already preparing for a war that has yet begun.
The True Group's attack killed many students of Ark. Nobody was allowed a day of grievance and was expected to swiftly return to work because they couldn't waste a second longer. It wouldn't be too late to pay tribute to the deceased after the end of the war.
Silence who sat next to him conveyed with his electric note. Squad Delta and Echo were annihilated. 8 dead. Amongst this group were first generation psykers and third years as well. The situation was so grave that even the third years could not be saved.
Han had been transferred based on the sergeants' letters of recommendation and the events related to Kuro, even though his psychic skills were subpar.
"It was a different kind of fear I had never experienced before. The only logical reason I would experience such fear in that situation is dragon fear. After the Elu mage was incapacitated, the fearful energy coming from the dimensional crack disappeared."
"I don't like to stand out. Everyone in Ark is trying to compete with each other. Anyone who chooses to compete for the top is bound to have rivals trying to step on you. Do you know class A's Simon Dell? He had transferred together with you guys. Everyone refers to him as a genius, but in turn everyone in class A sees him as nothing but a rival. Instead, by following the pace of the crowd, I can get promoted with ease and comfort. The key point is to make sure you're never at the top until the very last moment.
"I've never forgotten someone who died while under my care, and I will continue to do so in the future."
-It seems we won't meet for awhile longer. Do your best to transfer up into third year.
Han pushed down his opponents back. The opponent who fell out of the sparring zone looked down to the ground. His pride had been stepped on without mercy.
The winning squads are awarded special feasts. This special feast is one of the greatest motivations for the students to win. In this place, everyone's meals are strictly controlled, and so these special feasts are the few enjoyments that could be found in Ark. Usually, they can't enjoy greasy foods like this at all.
Korea had been one of the first countries to be hit in the first wave of aggression and thus had suffered the most casualties.
