Marcus broke the arm with a blade and then throw the thug to the side. Looking at the other thug, his body was also modified a lot, so he made his way over to him and destroyed all of the weaponized parts. And after checking that the surrounding is safe, he made his way to the girl.
She was now sitting on the ground. Seeing her and shoulders shaking and small sobbing coming from behind her hands that concert her face, Marcus wasn't sure what to say. Either way, he couldn't say anything yet as his neck was still healing.
So he put his hand on top of her head and patted her. His part was done, so he started to make his way out of the alley.
When Anna realized that the man who saved her was leaving she got up and run after him. They are in trouble! Both of them are! These people are after her because of her father, but now that this person saved her and beaten up two of them, they will go after him as well!
She grabbed him by the back of his shirt. He then turned around and looked at her. She could see herself in his sunglasses, and as she looked down, she saw blood. His neck was slashed, but blood wasn't flowing anymore. She froze, what is she supposed to do now? Call the ambulance?
Seeing the girl frozen in place, Marcus moved the Everlasting Soma to the limit, this way the wound will heal in a few seconds but more reserve will be consumed. He didn't want to do it, it was a waste, and he needs to save up as much as he can for when he gets back to his world.
"Ahem… what is it?" After clearing his throat, Marcus asked as if nothing had happened.
"How? How are you? Is your neck alright?" Clearly panicked she started to check his neck where the cut used to be but founding that there was only some blood but no actual wound, she was shocked. He was definitely cut!
"Look. I happen to help you, but this is it…"
[Host, a new mission called 'Damsel in distress' had been added. Check the mission tab for more details.]
Well… this is new. Let's see what will happen.
Damsel in distress. – A complete accident, a meeting that was not planned, but it happened, and now a lady needs help. Help the lady in need and be a hero! But first, find out what the problem is.
Reward: 50 SC
Hmm… this is good. Let's do this quest, the reward is too good to pass on it. But this is going to be troublesome. Maybe I should call Mei over? She is good at handling people. No… if he calls her over, she will bring Alexa as well, and if Rick finds out, it will be even more trouble.
"Hey... why did those two attack you?" He asked this was the only questions that came to his mind. But it will be able to let him know the situation. But it didn't work as he thought, his question was completely ignored, and he was dragged to the girl's house. She gave him clothes to change and let him take a shower.
"Who are you?" She finally asked, while dragging him here Anna wanted just get home, away from where the thugs were. She knew that reinforcements can come at any time. These people were not ones to joke around with.
"I'm Marcus, and you are?"
"My name is Anna. I need to apologize to you, because of me you are in danger now. I really sorry, you saved me, but I will only bring trouble to you." Tears gathered in the corners of her eyes and breathing became irregular.
"Stop, don't cry. You should answer my question from before instead." This isn't good, I can't deal with crying people. You can do it, Anna! Don't cry.
She doesn't remember? It was barely twenty minutes ago. At least he kept her mind occupied, and she won't cry now.
An hour later Marcus had a good idea of what was going on. The father of Anna was in financial problems, and he did the most stupid thing a person can do, which is borrowing money from a gang. The Modifiers. An underground organization that specializes in making illegal body modifications, like the blade and the cannon of the thug from before.
So, her father borrowed money from them, and the thing didn't work out as he planned. So he took the leftover money and skipped the town. Left alone and with no money, she found a job and somehow managed until the Modifiers came to collect the debt. Today was their third time coming here, but this time they were more… urging. Then he, Marcus, showed up and saved the day.
Now that he attacked them, he will be a target for them as well. Which didn't matter much to him, but to resolve the problem of Anna and get the reward from the mission, he will have to resolve her problem with the gang. He could just pay them off, but that will be troublesome if someone asks why he is sending money to gangs. Not to mention that if he gives money to them once chances are that they will come back for more.
At this moment someone started to knock on the door to her apartment. Opening his eyes, he saw that it was people of the gang, this time there was five of them, all of them fully modified, with barely any human parts left.
"Go hide, I will take care of them," Marcus said to Anna, on his face a small smile started emerging and blood started to boil in his veins. He missed this. Fighting. A challenge.
And when Anna closed herself in her bedroom, Marcus cracked his neck and made his way to the door and unlooked them with a cruel smile on his face.
