“Also, it’s not that we blocked the broadcast. It became possible because Egotistic stopped broadcasting after the incident ended…”
“Okay, I got it. That’s enough to understand what’s going on.”
The chairman of the association cut off the speaker’s words.
The presenter bowed his head once and returned to his seat.
Only the chairman’s voice echoed across the long table.
“This villain is strategic and very well-informed. They know the whereabouts and identities of A and S-class villains and can hack into the broadcasting networks at will. Anything else?”
The man who had given the briefing earlier opened his mouth.
“Moreover… for one, they seem to keep their word. They actually let people on a boat go unharmed because no one pressed the button, as promised. And the most important point is their obsession with Stardust.”
As he finished speaking, everyone’s gaze shifted toward someone sitting at the end of the table.
Stardust, Shin Haru, who was sitting and participating in the meeting, caught everyone’s attention.
“Yes, that’s correct. For some reason, the perpetrator left a message for me at the scene where the villain was killed, and even during this incident, they specifically called me out.”
“Do you have any idea why, Stardust?”
The chairman asked, and Haru simply replied nonchalantly.
“I’m not sure myself.”
“Hmm… That’s peculiar.”
After hearing her response, the chairman stroked his chin and began to talk about a different subject—suggesting his rank be classified as S-class, which means putting him on the list of top priority bounties. But then the discussion went back and forth—arguing that it was too soon to grant an S-class title to someone who had only attempted civilian murder and whose psychokinetic abilities remained unverified…
And so, the heated debate went on throughout the night.
In a small studio apartment a few kilometers away from the site of the terror.
“Ah, damn… I’m dying here.”
I could do nothing but groan in agony, lying on the bed.
Living as a villain isn’t easy…
