Owari no Chronicle Volume 6-B

Chapter 20

Kazami and Izumo had planned to stay in Japanese UCAT for the night, so they were the first to learn Hiba had been carried to the medical room after his battle with Atsuta.

They had left the school and the year-end festival with Ooki and rushed inside Japanese UCAT while still wearing their school uniforms.

“So what do you think, Chisato? A small fry should really just run off after getting beat.”

“This small fry has a heroine. When she isn’t watching is exactly when he needs to show some real guts.”

“Is that how it works?” asked Izumo as he came to a stop in a white underground corridor. The medical room’s door opened at the press of a button, so they entered and continued to a row of beds in one corner.

“A man in black.”
Someone in black stood before one of the beds.

When he noticed them, he turned around. He had the narrow eyes and black hair of someone from continental Asia.

However, he gave a light bow before they could say anything.
“I quickly put together some treatment for him. I wanted to at least help him come to.”

“Who are you?”
Kazami and Izumo partially put up their guard and the man took a step forward.

“. . . ”
The next thing they knew, he had passed by them.

Kazami also noticed her own hand was casually holding a business card.
Behind her, she heard the door opening and a voice.

“Please understand that Chinese UCAT has no intention of being your enemy.”

Kazami checked the name on the business card.
“Are you Doctor Chao’s-. . . ?”

“It is a common surname in my country. That may be why we like to think of each other as one big family. . . . Anyway, please take care of the rest. If you need anything, feel free to ask. My country believes great and talented individuals are born in every land and we hope to continue an amicable relationship as the neighbor with the longest history in the world.”

Kazami heard the door close and footsteps moving down the corridor.
The only people left were Izumo, Kazami, and the bandaged individual sleeping on the bed before them.

“Hiba. . . You’ve been pretty manly for two days in a row now.”
The boy with a thin cloth placed over him instead of a blanket slowly opened his eyes.

His left arm was encased in a cast from the shoulder down and his right arm had an IV in it. His entire body was wrapped in charms and bandages, but the scrapes and the like had been ignored and all of the treatment was focused on the major injuries, be they external or internal.
