Inside the aircraft, everyone gathered together in the strategy room.
"I'll go over the plan once more," Liddy said.
In the middle of the room, there was a table with a screen that showed a hologram map.
"This is a map of the mountains near Tian Quan City in the Empire of Qin," Liddy said.
Then a big yellow circle with a lot of red circles inside appeared on the map.
"We estimate that there are around 50 Savages in this area," Liddy said.
'50, huh?' Haru thought that this number was too small since he had only slain four Savages.
"Our base camp is in Tian Quan City. That's where Xuemei (the one that Haru has saved before) was born. If there's something that you don't understand, ask her. She's our guide," Erica said.
"P - Please take care of me!!" Xuemei answered nervously. Btw, she had also given Haru her gift after he had won the duel before, but that wasn't important now.
"And there's a chance those three will appear during this mission." Claire looked at Haru and said, "Haru, can you tell us about three of them again?"
Haru explained about the three of them. He wasn't exaggerating, but he knew that the power of three Hunters was more powerful than the majority of Selections in this place.
The strategy meeting was over, and the aircraft landed in Tian Quan City.
Haru felt that he was the third wheel when he was together with Emile and Hayato. He felt it was quite troublesome to stay with them and decided to stay with Liddy since this girl was quite free.
Claire went to visit the UN's joint operations task force.
Erica also joined Claire when she was her secretary.
Haru didn't know what had happened between Erica and Claire, but it seemed that their relationship seemed very special.
"Let's go to the city later," Liddy said.
"Sure, I'm also curious about the cuisine in this area," Haru said.
"Wait, don't go first, we'll go together," Claire said.
They nodded and waited for Claire to finish her meeting.
Haru took bubblegum that he had bought in Toriko's world. "Do you want some?"
Liddy nodded and said, "Thank you."
"Erica, you too," Haru said.
Erica looked at Haru for a while but nodded. She looked at him and asked, "What do you think of Claire-sama?"
"Prez? Good girl?" Haru said.
Erica sighed in relief when she heard it and patted Haru's shoulder. "Yes, Claire-sama is a good girl."
Liddy didn't think much, but she was wondering where Haru had bought the bubblegum since its taste was very unique.
Spending time at Tian Quan City, they went out at night together and in the early morning, before they went for the mission, they gathered in the meeting room to talk about the mission once again.
"Let's go over the mission one last time."
"In 1300 hours, each squad will take helicopters to their designated place mountain-entry points. They will then spend a night wiping any Savages they encounter and return to base at 1700 hours tomorrow."
Haru had joined Claire's team together with Hayato, Emile, Claire, Erica, and a female soldier from the Gudenburg Empire who was also self-proclaimed Emile's childhood friend, Claudia Lowetti.
Emile complained that Claudia Lowetti had joined the group, but there was nothing that she could do.
"Isn't it good, Emile? You have a lovely childhood friend who follows you to this place," Haru said with a smile.
"Haru...." Emile twitched his lips.
Claude was happy, but then her expression turned serious when she looked at Haru. Different from Hayato who was very normal, she didn't have an attraction to him, but on Haru it was different. "E - Emile-sama, who is he?" She whispered in a low voice and seemed quite shy.
Emile frowned and looked at Haru with an annoyed expression. She was a bit afraid that this guy was going to seduce Claudia. "Don't get close to him, he is a playboy. You'll regret it."
"H - Huh!?" Claude was surprised by Emile's words, but she was more curious rather than afraid.
They continued to talk about the strategy and Liddy was in a different team together with Reitia and Fritz.
Claire who looked at Haru frowned when she noticed that Haru had never called her by her name. She saw that Liddy and Erica were quite close to Haru, but for her, she felt that there was some distance between the two of them.
Claire frowned when she heard him call her "prez".
Haru felt strange and wondered whether he had done something wrong. "Can I go by myself later?"
"Huh? You want to go by yourself?"
They were surprised.
Haru nodded and said, "I'll go for an hour or so, then come back to the team again. You can use this chance to train everyone since it'll be their first time to fight against Savage."
"Then, what are you going to do?" Emile asked.
"I'm also hunting Savage and also searching for the Hunters since I'm the only one who has seen them," Haru said. His drawing skill was quite weird since he could only draw a cubism style.
Claire frowned and said, "That's too dangerous."
"My survival skill is very high, you don't need to worry," Haru said.
Haru could see that Claire was very hesitant and said, "I'll inform you from time to time, and I'll only go for an hour or two at best."
"I'll give you two hours and you need to come back immediately after that's over," Claire said.
"Thank you," Haru said.
Claudia was quite surprised and whispered, "Emil-sama, is it alright for him to do that?"
"Well, he has the strength." Emile became serious and said, "From what I can see, he is going to become the strongest Slayers in Warslan."
Claudia was shocked.
After the meeting, Haru entered the helicopter then went by himself to hunt down Savage.
A dagger appeared on his right hand, Haru was moving very fast and ran on the air.
It was possible for Slayers to stand on the air by creating an energy on the soles of their feet, but it was very rare for them to do it since it would take a lot of their energy, however, it didn't really matter for Haru since energy was the only thing that he didn't lack in this world.
Releasing energy on the soles of his feet, he ran around the on the air right on the top of the forest to see his surroundings better. It didn't take him long before he met Savage.
Haru didn't say anything and put his energy into his Hundred making it turned into a long whip.
Swinging it down, he cut down Savage in half.
Stopped, he took Savage's core and then continued with his hunt.
There are only 50 Savages in this area, and he would take at least half of them.
