It had been 19 days that Haru had stayed at the Kuromochi Research Center to develop his personal IS.
All energy on the research site was being used for the development of this IS since if it was successfully created then they would become the first research organization that was able to develop the first 4th Generation IS in the world.
Everyone was very excited and no one would think that the first 4th Generation IS in the world would be developed by the 2nd IS male pilot which made them surprised and startled, but no one denied his ability, especially when he was also a genius mechanic.
Of course, this matter had been told to the government and it was put under the top-secret since if this project was successful then their country would own the first 4th Generation IS.
They were thinking to strengthen the security of the research facility, but Haru told them to stop it since he thought that if they caused too much reaction some spies on the country might notice it and it was better to stay low-key without causing too much attention.
Hearing Haru's advice, everyone agreed since they thought if they reacted too much there might be a group of a spy who heard about this matter, but of course, they also kept strengthening the security around the research facility, however, this time it was more low-key.
The government had to admit that it was a very wise decision to accept him to let him enter the research facility, especially when he had also given them a method to develop 4th Generation IS, even though it hadn't reached the level of mass-produced, but it would help their country's research to a great leap.
They also loved him since Haru was very obedient at them and never fought them back which made him perfect for the representative pilot of their country, especially when they had tested his pilot ability using mass-produced IS before and knew that his ability was very powerful.
They supported him fully and wouldn't hesitate to give him anything. They also thought to make him more obedient with a woman since they knew that a young man in their teen was full of libido, but it seemed that wasn't a wise decision since when a woman had entered Haru's claws they would become his prey and become his rather then being controlled by the government.
Haru was a bit tired of working to develop his own IS, and he thought about taking a break from fishing on the nearby river. He had done this a lot and felt that it was quite refreshing, though, he was wondering whether he could meet Shinonono Tabane since he really wanted to invite her to the Group Chat.
It was quite a peaceful day, but suddenly when he was fishing, as usual, he saw something strange on the river.
'What the heck is that?'
Haru saw something similar to a carrot, but it was made from metal. He took it out and suddenly could hear a voice from the carrot.
"Hello! Hello! Hello! Is this Haru-kun?"
"No, you've mistaken someone."
"Eh? Really? Then who are you?"
"My name is Tanaka. I'm Suzuka-san's neighbor? Are you the grandchildren of Tanuma-san who lives near a mountain?"
"Mooo! Don't tease, Tabane-chan, Haru-kun!"
Haru raised his eyebrow and asked, "Tabane-chan?"
"Yes! Yes! I'm the genius scientist, Shinonono Tabane-chan!"
"What's with that response? Don't you feel surprised? Don't you feel happy to hear my voice? Don't you want to see me?"
Haru was a bit surprised inside since he didn't expect Shinonono Tabane to be such a childish person, but when he thought about Hikaruno who he had spent a time together for 19 days. He felt that all of the scientists had a weird quirk or two.
"How am I going to believe that it is you?"
However, he wouldn't believe this person immediately, but he knew that the possibility of the person who had communicated with him was Shinono Tabane right now was very high.
"Mooo! You're too wary of me! Then... how about this! You can ask me any questions so that it'll make you believe that I'm Shinonono Tabane."
"Hmm..." Haru thought for a while and asked, "How old are you?"
"Mooo! How rude! How can you ask for a lady's age! I'm angry! Pun! Pun!"
Haru wasn't sure what to say for a moment and said, "So you can't answer it?"
"Shinonono Tabane is forever 17 years old!"
Haru thought for a while and asked, "What is your gender?"
"It's a girl! How can you not know about such a common thing! Moo! Haru-kun! Can you ask me other questions? You can ask me anything besides my age!"
Haru closed his eyes and thought for a while. "Then, if you can answer this last question, I'll believe that the one who communicates with me right now is Shinonono Tabane."
"Good! Ask away!"
"What are your three sizes?"
"It's 88-59-88! Moo! Haru-kun, you're such a pervert!"
'You're the one who's telling me....' Haru was speechless, but he didn't say anything, only noted that information on his head.
"But it is understandable since you've been "snu snu" together with Hikaruno, right?"
Haru raised his eyebrow and asked, "How did you know?"
"It's very hard to hack inside the research facility. I guess you're not only a skilled mechanic but also a hacker, right?"
"But you're in the presence of Great Tabane!"
Haru could see how confident this woman was and asked, "Oh, Great Tabane, can you tell me how did you know about my matter with Hikaruno?"
"Hehehe, since you've asked kindly, I'll tell you that I've hacked Hikaruno's phone, even though I can't see what you two are doing, but the m.o.a.n of Hikaruno is too loud! I guess you're really well down below and very skilled in that area, right?"
"No comment." Haru sighed and felt depressed. He knew that he needed to give better protection to Hikaruno's later. "So what does Great Tabane-sama want to do with me?"
"Oh, you can call me Tabane-chan!"
"No, I just want to talk with you since you're able to develop the first 4th Generation IS, right?"
Haru was speechless and asked, "Who have you hacked again?"
"Hehehe, don't worry, I've hacked the information from the government, not from your research facility, but I'll crack down on your protection soon!"
"Well, I'm waiting for you to crack it."
Haru thought that Tabane was a good challenge and it was also a test whether this woman was as genius as the world said.
"Hehehe, it has been a while since I've a lot of fun, Haru-kun, but can I ask you a question?"
"Who are you?"
"......" Haru hadn't said anything, but Tabane continued.
"Even though your fake history is so good that you're able to deceive the government into believing you, you can't escape from my Tabane's eyes! I can see that you've been forging all of the information about yourself and it is as if.....
You appear from nothing! Yes! It is as if you've appeared out of thin air! You suddenly appear in this world!"
Haru smiled and said, "The world is so wide. You might not find me in Japan, but I might have been born from another place."
"Hmm, that's true..."
Haru could see that Tabane couldn't accept the fact.
"Well, if you're curious how about you meet me?"
"Hehehe, I'm not prepared yet. I'm afraid that you might seduce me and make me pregnant later."
Haru was speechless and said, "I'm not such a person!"
"Really? Well, that's good! I'm afraid that you might create a harem in your school later! But if you can conquer Chifuyu-chan, then I don't mind copulating with you later."
Haru took a deep breath and asked, "Are you done?"
"Yes, I'll end our communication now since Hikaruno is coming."
Haru turned and noticed Hikaruno who was running toward him.
"Right, have you named your IS? Do you want me to name your IS?" Tabane asked.
"No need. I've named it myself."
"Oh, what is its name?"
"What a scary name.... but I guess that is very suitable for your IS, especially when its design is different from the norm, then let's talk to each other again in the future, Haru-kun."
Haru threw the carrot into the sky which suddenly exploded without noise. He couldn't sigh in relief since his body was almost thrown out because Hikaruno had suddenly jumped into him.
"Haru! Haru! Haru!"
Haru sighed and patted Hikaruno's head. "What's wrong?"
"I need my protein supply now!"
Hikaruno's eyes were looking at him with a hot gaze.
Haru looked at her for a while and asked, "Here?"
"Well, let me prepare something."
Haru took out something in his hand and put it inside his zipper storage before giving Hikaruno her protein supply.
Shinonono Tabane who was looking at Haru from the satellite hugging together with Hikaruno was very excited since she was curious how both of them did the deeds since she had only heard their voice before, but suddenly there was jamming which caused the picture that appeared on the screen to turn into an error.
Tabane sighed, but she smiled once again and thought that it would be interesting to meet Haru in the future. She was also wondering whether that guy was able to conquer Chifuyu later.
