Chapter 362 [Bonus chapter] Plans (2)

The Abyss was one of the most dangerous places on earth and home to the Wailer, one of the nine great t.i.tans. Sending Aldrich's aquatic variants there was almost like a suicide mission.

Okeanos might be able to do it, but he had to stay in Haven to power the city.

In the first place, the Italian got their Kryptic from the very few fragments that washed ash.o.r.e from the Abyss, and now, there were no such samples.

However, this still felt like the most realistic option. Most of Aldrich's undead could function underwater. He could too by virtue of not needing to breathe.

It was dangerous, but it was possible.

Aldrich weighed his options before V chimed in.

"Hold up," she said, tapping one of the her cable hairs. "What if we don't have to deal with Solomon at all?"

"What do you mean?" said Aldrich.

"I'm checking the news, and the AA's announced a S-cla.s.s hearing next week to discuss planetary defense in the case of variants returning," said V. "It's a day long meeting, and attendance is mandatory. Broken up over three days to make sure some S cla.s.s heroes are around to defend the world and all, but Solomon's scheduled for Sunday."

"That works," nodded Aldrich. "If Solomon's gone that day, that just leaves the Italian and j.a.panese p.r.o.ngs to deal with. Though 'just' isn't the word I would use.

If the j.a.panese's serious, they're going to have the Seven Swords there."

The Seven Swords were the top fighters in the j.a.panese, and since the was focused solely on creating high end fighters, they were the best of the best.

The strongest of the swords, a villain called Naraka, was an officially S ranked threat with the ability to split anything apart. The other six swords were all at the minimum A ranked threats as well.

On top of that, the Italian, though focused more on the business side of the Trident, still had their own fair share of capable fighters.

"A frontal a.s.sault won't work," said Aldrich. "Too costly. Too risky. Is there any way to infiltrate the area that's holding the Sc.r.a.pheart?"

"Blackwater was destroyed too quickly for me to have the chance to a.n.a.lyze it in my timeline," said Beta. "And Mel, like the rest of the students, was not privy to any relevant information."

"I see. Then there's not much more to discuss" said Aldrich. "Until we can get more information, we have to take it slow. We have until next Sunday to formulate a good plan of attack or infiltration, provided A.I.I. won't make a move before then."

I calculate that such an event is unlikely," said Beta. "The attack on the Judicata has forced A.I.I. to slow down its operations until it has recovered."

"That's what I thought too. Alright, then, we've identified a date to attack, we just need the how to figured out," said Aldrich. "I'll investigate a means to crack this problem on my end."

"We won't be doing this together?" asked Mel.

"I'd like to keep what we do separate for now," said Aldrich. "Do your own investigations if you want.

I trust your intentions, but I want how I operate to stay a trade secret."

"Beta, what do you think about this?" said Mel.

"To be honest, it doesn't matter what it thinks, does it?" said Aldrich before Beta could say anything. "Because you two need my help. There's n.o.body else to go to that can offer it. At the least, not anybody you can trust as much as me.

"That being said, going entirely dark on each other isn't in the books either. Let's communicate anything notable we find out," said Aldrich.

"Sounds good to me," said Mel.

"If you want a place to stay, I can arrange to have you housed in this city as well," said Aldrich.

Mel shook her head. "No. It's better that we stay on the move. I'll be seeing you, Aldrich. And next time, I'll use the front door."

"Please do."

She turned around and then disappeared as waves of gold surrounded her, warping her away. Looks like warping was one of her powers too.

"That was something, huh?" said V. "It feels like my eyes have been opened to the world."

"Same here," said Aldrich. He had a week now to get his matters in order and find a way to take down Blackwater. It also gave him some time to get other matters squared away. "V, try and see if you can get in touch with Flashback.

Tell him I want a meeting."

"The TV star?" said V. "Sure."

Aldrich nodded in appreciation. Now that Mel was gone, he raised his hand in the air, staring at the back of his palm. Upon it, the glowing mark of ten white branches shone, each holding circles at their ends.

Two of the circles were filled in. One with green, the other with a white with a jagged split down the middle.
