Chapter 728 - Wanted For Mass Murder
He pulled the electronic gloves beeping with blue light off his hands and turned around to face Gustav.
"Do you remember what you did?" He asked again while walking forward.
He sat on a chair in front of the stretcher-like bed Gustav was seated on.
He didn't even need to wait for Gustav's answer. The look on his face said it all, but Sir ZiL could still see confusion mixed in amongst the myriad of expressions on Gustav's face.
He clapped his hand twice, causing a holographic screen to appear in mid-air, right in front of Gustav.
From above, the image of a part of the city was displayed on the holographic screen. This displayed a massive crater that spanned for over a hundred miles.
Different authorities could be seen on the scene inspecting the phenomenon.
The image changed every five seconds, displaying different places within the city that were destroyed by Gustav.
"Yes, you're responsible for all that," Sir ZiL stated after the last image was shown.
"You went on a rampage after Danzo was killed, I presume. Sorry for your loss. His corpse was found in the first place that destroyed," Sir ZiL added with a sigh.
Gustav's face turned darker and hardened even more as he heard that.
"How did you find me?" He asked.
"I found you passed out a few miles away from the last location. Almost thought you were dead," Sir ZiL answered.
"There was no heartbeat on you till yesterday. But I knew you were alive because you would occasionally breathe in and out every one hour," Sir ZiL explained with a look of astonishment.
He was still intrigued about how Gustav was alive for three days without a single heartbeat. He would only take in oxygen and send out carbon dioxide after an hour.
"Also, your skin was really dark like you were burnt... But that changed after a single day, and your original skin tone returned," Sir ZiL didn't miss any detail as he voiced out.
He still wanted to know how Gustav was able to pull off everything he did. Especially since he knew Gustav wasn't that powerful originally.
Gustav also wanted the answer to this same question since the only thing he knew was the hidden rage ability was activated. He didn't expect it to be as powerful as that.
"I see," Gustav answered as he slid off the bed and stood to his feet.
"Thanks for the hospitality, Scientist ZiL. I will be taking my leave now," Gustav voiced out as he staggered across the place due to weak knees.
'I haven't felt this weak in a long time...' Gustav thought as he nearly fell to the side.
Sir ZiL grabbed hold of him from the side and supported weight.
"I don't think leaving here would be a wise choice right now," Sir ZiL stated as he tried to help Gustav back to the bed.
"I can't keep imposing on you. I'll be fine by myself," Gustav responded with a tone of disagreement.
"You need to recuperate, and believe me, you shouldn't be seen out in the open right now," Sir ZiL said as he helped Gustav turn back around and led him to the bed area.
The way Sir ZiL worded that made Gustav feel suspicious, so he decided to ask.
"What do you mean by, I shouldn't be seen out in the open right now?" Gustav asked as he sat down back on the bed.
"Hafeus bring up today's news," Sir ZiL voiced out in response.
A holographic projection appeared in mid-air once again.
Unlike the last one, which displayed images, this one displayed today's breaking news on one of the media outlets.
BREAKING NEWS! THE MAIN SUSPECT SAID TO BE INVOLVED IN THE DESTRUCTION OF WG DISTRICT AND OTHER LOCATIONS IN THE CITY HAS BEEN REVEALED TO BE MBO OFFICER/TRAINEE "GUSTAV CRIMSON!"
BREAKING NEWS! SURVIVORS OF THE DESTRUCTION INCIDENT HAVE CLAIMED THERE WAS AN INVOLVEMENT OF AN MBO OFFICER "GUSTAV CRIMSON"
BREAKING NEWS! WITNESSES REPORT FROM SURVIVORS HAVE IDENTIFIED THE CULPRIT TO BE "GUSTAV CRIMSON," AN MBO OFFICER/CADET. HE WAS ALSO SAID TO HAVE SAVED THE LIVES OF SOME SURVIVORS WHILE CLASHING WITH UNKNOWN ASSAILANTS.
Gustav watched as different media outlets showcased different versions of Breaking News, all with a similar connection, 'Gustav Crimson is now wanted worldwide,'
According to some of them, the survivors said outrightly that he caused the destruction after transforming into a monster which was identified to be the form Gustav took when Decimation was activated.
Some of the survivors he saved from the hotel building said it wasn't to blame since he was battling with three other powerful entities that wanted to murder everyone.
So far, they had figured out that the whole chaotic incident was linked to him, and now they wanted to get him to know the full story.
Gustav was now wanted all across the world for being the main suspect in the mass murder and destruction of properties worth hundreds of millions.
In other words, he was now a fugitive.
At this moment, the world was in awe since a lot of people still recognized Gustav to be the golden star of the MBO Candidates just a year ago.
Different kinds of questions ran through everyone's minds as they saw the news circulating across the globe.
'Shouldn't he be in training? It has only been a year. How did he become powerful enough to cause city-wide destruction?'
Many questions were related to this, which was why people felt a lot of things didn't add up with the news.
Every single authoritative force in the world was out to get Gustav at the moment while he was in Sir ZiL's personal lab.
"So now I'm wanted..." Gustav mumbled with a slightly tired tone.
"Well, over two thousand seven hundred people died, so this is to be expected," Sir ZiL responded candidly.
"I..." Gustav didn't really know what to say to this.
Thinking about the whole scenario now, Gustav realised that when the DECIMATION skill activated, all he could think about was rage and destruction.
