(Kaito's View)

Still looking at the weapon that Kyosei has given to me, I remembered the time I was an assassin, a hired killer. If I have known this weapon in the past, I would have many successful kills just by blending in. Now, I don't have much use of my skills except for killing the undead. I shook my head in fatigue. Lately, I am not able to sleep due to the fear of this behemoth. After seeing it up close, I never expected that it can make me fear just by looking at it. Although I am an assassin, I just decided to partake in the scavenging team.

Earlier, I saw Kyosei ride to the truck with soldiers and volunteer to the main attack force earlier which means he signed up to the dangerous mission. Although it should be one of my duties to be on the assault line, I didn't have the courage to do so. I might have stood a fighting chance against humans but against this beast? No, that is just impossible to do. Just thinking about how I had to deal with a blob lifeform without any certainty that it could be killed grips me.

But I still want to help so I decided to just sign up for the scavenging team. Although I won't be fighting against the blobs, we would be the main source of supply that will be delivered to the soldiers. I know it's not my main job in the past but I can handle it as long as I don't have to fight against the behemoth. Call me a coward or anything but I only wanted to live and not to die fighting.

Souichi already prepared all of the necessary items that we will be needing to use. Most of them are for siphoning gas. The acting leader of the squad is a soldier that is an expert in survival and he knows most of the ins and outs of the scavenging part.

"Remember. Abandon the task if you feel threatened by enemies nearby. If possible, do not work alone. We have the priority of not letting any personnel die in this mission. I know it's not an easy task but always have someone to watch your back. Do not stray too far but grab anything that would be useful, food, medicines, supplies, and even weapons if you ever get one. Do you all hear me?"

"YES, SIR!"

"Good,  now let the operation commence."

Day 9: 12:15 P.M

(Souichi's View)

The truck is moving a bit fast into our destination which would be on the wreckage of cars. With all the cars abandoned by their previous owners, it is impossible to have no gas left on them. After a few minutes sitting side by side with Kaito, Shu and the others, the truck finally stopped and the soldiers were the very first people to go down the car. Then, the radio that the soldiers have given to all volunteers goes static before the voice of the acting leader was heard, giving out a direct command.

"ALL TEAMS! CLEAR OUT THE INFECTED ON THE STREETS BEFORE THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE MISSION! RETREAT IF THE SITUATION IS DIRE!"

Hearing the command, I raise my M4 Carbine out and head to the direction the soldiers are heading. There are many moving figures just by looking from afar.  And I am quite sure that the figures moving are not human but the undead. They were notorious for being a dangerous flock of monsters that tend to just gather and form a destructive horde. I bet they will attack any humans in the vicinity.

And I was right, as soon as the soldiers' boots rang out the tap sound, all of the undead in the surroundings simultaneously turn their heads. I was taken aback by their reactions. I may be a bit experienced in facing them at Night Rage but I still get freaked out from them. They are so sh*try rotten to the core.

"AIM AND FIRE!"

Guns released a barrage of bullets to the horde of undead. With the barrage, either the dead won't stand anymore or their brains are turned into mush. I gulp my saliva already. Looking at the others killing the undead, I still find it surreal for me. Izayoi easily managed to adapt to his new life. Maybe I should have followed his example of becoming a gamer so that I can easily kill enemies like they were just from a game. Find authorized novels in Webnovel,faster updates, better experience,Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.

The rifles continue to fire for quite a while and if you are not a fan of noise, then this place is something you don't want to be with. And due to the barrage of bullets, it didn't take too long for the soldiers to secure the place and destroy the undead infesting the area.

The leader stood up, still aiming his gun as he scans for other stragglers. After a few while, he stood up and nodded before he goes to face us.

"Good job guys. Let's wrap this up before more undead comes in for the feast. We can't keep on staying here in the long term."

Everyone quickly moves on around without thinking twice. It's something amazing that a soldier with a vague command can still perform efficiently. Because I have no idea about this one, I am one of the people who are keeping on guard in case an attack would be coming in.

Just as we are preventing the next death, another cold sound of a growling noise is currently trying to get into my ears. I am quite sensitive when it comes to sound. And I am quite sure I hear something.

"Grrrrrrr..."

The SIG P210 (now manufactured as the SIG Sauer P210 in the United States) is a licensed copy of the French Model 1935 which is the Petter Browning design. Petter had removed the loose fitting barrel bushing and the tilting link of the John Browning M1907 design, but retained the grooves on the top of the barrel which engaged similar grooves in the interior of the slide. SIG licensed this design in 1947The USP (Universelle Selbstladepistole or "universal self-loading pistol") is a semi-automatic pistol developed in Germany by Heckler & Koch GmbH (H&K) of Oberndorf am Neckar as a replacement for the P7 series of handguns.
