While Kevin was destroying the place in his territory, Kanae contacted the Souhon Clan and Lighting Gang to make the move against the abandoned building in their territory. They also asked to check the place from the clan and the gang in case the others also held some secrets. As the third in command of the Souhon Clan, it was easy for them to ask something from the clan.
"They're the one who's in danger, why are we the one who becomes busy?" Tommy asked when they gathered in the abandoned building.
"If they manage to finish the weapon, we're going to be one of the targets. Do you think they will not let a perfect guinea pig like us?" Shiro rolled his eyes.
"I'm not a guinea pig!"
"You're the most perfect one. No one will search for you even if you disappear for days!"
Seeing these two started to argue, Kanae rubbed her forehead. No matter where they were, Tommy would make trouble with either Shiro or Jason. It seemed as if they would never be able to get along.
"Kanae, is it alright for us to let them do the job?" Jason asked when he finished contacting the two.
Kanae nodded her head. "It's not like this is a big of an event. Based on how easily obtained this information is, I'm sure the secret weapon is not the only deal the two families have. Even if we manage to destroy the place, there will be other things."
"The big families are not simple," Jason nodded his head in agreement. "How's your meeting with Kevin?"
"He seems different," Kanae answered as she recalled the event that happened not long ago. Kevin seemed like a stranger to her. She had never seen him like that before and it caused her to feel discomfort.
Her mind blanked a bit, why did she only sense discomfort when normal people would feel pressure and fear? She did feel cautious in front of the man, but she was not afraid of him. All she felt was the uncomfortable feeling because she had to fight against someone whom she knew and close.
"He's the leader of the Ryukalin Clan, so it's obvious that his demeanor will be different," Jason had seen them too before. He found it quite unbelievable how much Kevin changed when he was on the daily basis and when he was in the clan. The two of them seemed like completely different people.
"Yeah," Kanae answered curtly.
In all honesty, she didn't like seeing this side from Kevin. She felt glad that the usual Kevin was very kind to her. Wait, kind was not a suitable description. He was more like an ice block in the daily basis and rarely changed his expression. Still, she felt that he has more expression as of lately.
Erasing those thoughts, Kanae took her small swords and moved around in the room. She felt that she was not strong enough against Kevin, so she wanted to train her body more.
Jason shook his head when he saw Kanae's action. "Those old fellows from the Souhon Clan are going to challenge you after they finished helping the Lighting Gang eradicating the building. Where do you want to meet them?"
"How many people they send?"
"There are three people, each of them is an expert in fighting."
"Search for a hidden and spacious place in the Black Street around Souhon Clan's area. We're going there," Kanae answered as she twisted her body and landed swiftly on the ground.
Tommy stopped his argument with Shiro and looked towards Kanae. "When will I be able to catch up to you, Boss?"
"You should just train," Shiro patted the boy's head. "At least, a decade should be enough if you want to catch up to the current Rei."
"A decade? I'm not that bad!"
"A little brat like you will never be able to catch up in a short time."
"You dare to say that when you yourself can't do it?"
Kanae and Jason: "…" when will you stop arguing?
"I'm going to head towards the fighting place. Do you two want to come along?" Kanae glanced towards the fighting duo.
Tommy nodded his head. "Of course, I don't want to miss your fight, Captain."
"There's no need for me to come along. I want to catch up with my sleep," Shiro shook his head. He had just gotten a new gun part from the black market, so he spent a long time studying them. Right now, he wanted to have some rests.
"I'll drive you two. Oh yeah, Tommy, you're not allowed to get out from the car at all except emergencies," Jason warned.
Tommy nodded his head solemnly. Those three must be someone very powerful for Jason to warn him like this. He didn't want to die yet, so it would be better for him to follow the instruction.
While Jason was driving, Kanae browsed the web to find out more about those three people. They were quite famous in the Souhon Clan's territory lately because the power of the Souhon Clan has been decreasing. Although their fame only limited in that territory, their ability has surpassed many people.
Her brow creased when she read their information. If these people interfered in the Souhon Clan's battle before, the fight was going to be extremely dire. Fortunately, the three of them were not that idiot to barge into the fight where they would get used.
When they already neared the designated place, Jason got a call from Joshua, the Lighting Gang leader.
"Oro, you're correct. There are a lot of research results in this abandoned building. The Souhon Clan's elder are furious."
"You should eliminate them or just hand them to the Souhon Clan. I'm sure the clans didn't like it if the families try to do anything on their back."
"You bet. Still, I feel like the families are planning for something bigger than this. You better be careful too."
"I get it. Will you watch the fight between Rei and the other three?"
"Of course, I will. I have been waiting for this. I'm heading towards the place with them. Mind you, they're powerful."
Jason sneaked a glance towards Kanae from the mirror. Kanae was still studying her opponent seriously. He smiled slightly at this sight. "There's no need to worry, Rei is very powerful."
The call got disconnected, and Jason tucked the phone away. If this was before the incident last year, he would not be this confident, but right now, there was no one whom he trusted more than Kanae. Her fighting ability was far more than how it used to be.
The car soon arrived in the designated place. Tommy looked towards the opposite side of the field. Even from inside the car, his senses were telling him that those people were dangerous.
Kanae looked towards the three people with a solemn expression. They were going to be the most powerful group of people she faced. In the Ryukalin Clan's territory, most of the strongest people were inside the clan. She rarely met with opponents she had to face with extreme seriousness lately as her fighting prowess has been soaring.
"Josh, is that the one you mean?" the first man, a fat man, asked with a frown on his face.
Joshua nodded his head. He recognized Kanae in that getup instantly. After not seeing the other party for some time, it seemed that Kanae has grown even stronger.
The second man, a tall man who wore black clothes, snickered. "Don't underestimate that boy. Even I feel that he's quite dangerous."
"You're correct," the third man, a bulky man walked forward leisurely. "He's quite powerful, but not up to our standard."
"We'll see about that," Joshua answered calmly.
Kanae walked towards the group of people indifferently. Her eyes assessed the three men beside Joshua carefully. This was not going to be an easy fight.
