Chapter 507: Backstory Leading To Gustav's Decision
Officer Mag landed in front of Endric a few moments after Gustav left and took him away with her to get medical attention.
Gustav left along with the others amidst the stares of everyone in the vicinity.
There was even a large crowd of cadets waiting just outside the hall of doom.
The instant they spotted Gustav leaving, they assumed Endric was gone, but they were quite shocked to see injuries on his body and half his uniform gone.
They had heard the sounds of the vigorous battle from their positions and understood it must have been truly a crazy one. However, they never expected Gustav, who was currently number one on the ranking, would use so much effort to defeat Endric, who was ranked twelfth.
E.E opened up a vortex which five of them entered and disappeared from everyone's sight.
A few moments later, Officer Mag had Endric in her arms as she flew out of the hall of doom.
Chatter! Chatter! Chatter!
This caused another round of confusion since those who had not witnessed the battle were left wondering what had gone down within the hall of doom and why both brothers were still alive.
It would later spread across the camp that Gustav decided to spare Endric's life at the last moment, and both brothers decided to unanimously cancel the battle.
Minutes later, Gustav was within his room with Angy, E.E, Aildris, and the others.
"How did you get this Angy?" Gustav asked while raising the button-sized device in his hand.
"I got a call from one of the officers to follow her to a secluded place while you and Endric were battling.
She explained to me that there was a package from Miss Aimee... According to the package that came with this recording device, Miss Aimee mentioned that it was important I got this to you as soon as possible and stop the battle before any of you two died," Angy explained.
"I see... Looks like she made an investigation just like I asked," Gustav muttered in response, causing all of them to have a slightly confused look on their faces.
A week back, when Gustav had received the information package from Miss Aimee about research from the planet Humbad, she dropped a communication device. Through the device, Gustav would be able to send her a message one time.
Gustav initially didn't see any need to use it a first, but then he recalled Endric's strange changes in personality. So, he decided to ask Miss Aimee to investigate if anything was happening outside related to Endric.
This was because he knew Endric was like a pawn in someone else's hand after finding out about the function of the foreign element in his body. Gustav explained things that had happened within the MBO camp on the device and how Endric and the formerly unknown group were under the influence of someone on the outside.
He hadn't expected Miss Aimee to quickly get down to the bottom of the situation in a single week and figure out what was going on.
It was as if miss Aimee knew where to look into and, in a manner of days, uncovered the whole thing after linking Endric's communication with the outside world to Yung Jo.
She figured out the plot and managed to save Gustav's and Endric's parents, but she was still unable to pin this to Yung Jo because he had totally erased any form of evidence that would lead back to him.
The two minute-message Gustav listened to back in the hall of doom was from Miss Aimee breaking down the events to him and how Endric was threatened with his parents lives to accept the deathmatch,
Gustav didn't even care about his parents, neither did he really care if Endric lived or died, but the instant he found out Yung Jo was involved, his entire being trembled with rage.
He figured that there was truly a chance that Endric might have changed. Although this didn't mean his grudge had disappeared. He still wanted to hear everything from Endric's side because he understood the decision was made against his own free will.
Gustav explained part of the situation to Angy, E.E, Aildris, and the rest. He didn't give them the full breakdown, but he made them understand that Endric didn't accept to battle him of his own free will, and there was a chance that Endric might have truly turned a new leaf.
"I told you Gustav... He's still a kid. You should give him a chance," Angy stated.
"Doesn't change the fact that he holds enough power to burn an entire neighborhood to the ground... Just because he's a kid doesn't mean he shouldn't be held accountable for his actions, especially with the amount of power he holds," Gustav responded with a profound gaze.
"You're right," Angy couldn't refute his statement.
"I will hear what he has to say... And decide what to do next from there," Gustav added.
"I'm glad things turned out this way though... He has the potential to be a great ally in the future..." E.E voiced out from the side.
"That's still pending remember? He can be made to do things against his will... I don't know what's more dangerous, him getting controlled against his will or him pretending to have changed just to put some secretive plans in motion," Gustav stated.
Even though Miss Aimee had explained things to him, Gustav only gave Endric the benefit of the doubt. Trusting that he had completely changed was still impossible for Gustav at the moment.
Minutes later, all of them left the room, and Gustav was left alone once again.
He reminisced about today's events as he chanelled his bloodline. It was certainly a crazy day, and he would have been incinerated if not for the power of the Kilapisole.
This was the same alien form he took back then in the Caskia Ruins.
The Kilapisole could create a tough and solid material from its body called iro silk. This same iro silk stopped Gustav's Atomic Disintegration from cutting through back then.
