Maybe a Fake Gintama - Chapter 84
“Is anyone here?” Kawaki stood outside a warehouse and shouted.
“Hey, hey, it’s already so late. Is there anyone who visits this kind of place that no one cares about?” Old Man Gengai pulled open the shutter door and complained, but when he saw the person, he was stunned for a moment, “Isn’t this kid who is interested in robots? What are you doing here?”
“I just want to ask you for a favor,” Kawaki explained with a smile.
“What favor? Other than machinery, I am not good at anything.”
“That’s why I can only come to you,” Kawaki said as he followed Old Man Gengai into the small factory.
After the two of them entered, Kawaki took out three mobile phones and a stack of bills and placed them in front of Old Man Gengai. However, after thinking about it, he took out a mobile phone from his pocket.
“What is this?” Old Man Gengai looked at the things in front of him and was a little confused.
“Modify these mobile phones’ communication distance into the whole galaxy,” Kawaki replied.
“It can’t be done,” Gengai shook his head and continued, “This has already exceeded the limit. It’s okay to build a small electric donkey or something, but this is really impossible.”
“I know how difficult it is, but…” As he spoke, Kawaki took out a small sealed transparent bottle. The small bottle was filled with green liquid, and it was currently emitting indescribably beautiful light.
“This is…” Old Man Gengai muttered, “Altana! How did you do it! How could you compress this energy into liquid? Kid, do you know how long this small bottle of energy can last the entire earth if converted into electricity?! You really aren’t simple!”
“I just happened to get it from a friend. That friend also said something about quantum stability, although I really don’t understand.” Kawaki asked casually, “So, is it okay now?”
“En…” Old Man Gengai pondered for a moment, then raised his head and said slowly, “I can try it. I can get it in a month.”
“Five days,” Kawaki said without hesitation, “At most five days!”
“Are you trying to tire me to death? I might not be able to build a reactor that can hold this energy in five days!”
“Eh?” Kawaki asked doubtfully, “I heard that you are the number one mechanic in Edo? Is it fake? Is it just a name?”
“You are still a hundred years too early to provoke me! Kid!” Gengai said with some disdain, “But… I will take this job! I will do it in five days!”
“Then thank you… I will leave it to you!” Kawaki said sincerely. Then, he turned around and walked out. Just as he reached the door, he suddenly thought of something. He stopped and turned to Gengai and said, “If you really can’t solve the problem of calls, at least it has to reach the point of sending messages to each other. Also, in terms of appearance, there are two female models and two male models.”
“Hijikata-san, did we forget something today?” Sogo sat on the ground and asked with his chin propped up.
“I don’t know!” Toshiro said unhappily, “Today, we let that Katsura escape again! It really makes me unhappy!”
“You push the timeline forward, what are we doing before chasing Katsura?” Sogo reminded.
“Huh?” Toshiro looked at Sogo like he was looking at an idiot, “Weren’t you looking after the Space Monster’s body at the bank entrance before chasing Katsura? When did your brain become so useless?”
“So, it’s a Space Monster…”
“That Monster’s body is still in the bank!” At this time, Toshiro finally reacted and instantly stood up, “I was really careless! If there were people who didn’t know the truth and brought those things back home, that would be terrible! If they ate it, they would definitely have diarrhea!”
As he spoke, Toshiro rushed out and began to gather a group of Shinsengumi members.
“December sixteenth, Hijikata seems to have lost his memory due to the excessive consumption of mayonnaise and nicotine.” As Sogo spoke, he wrote in his notebook, “It feels like he is not far from death. When the time comes, this record might become Hijikata-san’s biography -[Hijikata’s Countdown to Death].”
“Great, it looks like no one has touched the corpse.” Toshiro was somewhat glad. At the same time, he looked at the group of Shinsengumi members and said, “Listen, move it out carefully!”
“Hijikata-san, what do you want to do with this disgusting corpse?” Sogo said from the side.
“The guys from the Immigration Bureau asked me to take it. It seems that a big man wants it.” Toshiro said as he lit a cigarette for himself, “But there really is such a guy…”
“However, he is really amazing. Has that Umibouzu always been fighting with this kind of thing? I am even suspecting who is Monster now.” Sogo continued.
“Actually, that family is all Monster. That woman…” As he spoke, Toshiro recalled the feeling of being suppressed by the other party when he faced Kouka, as well as the kick from Kawaki that instantly kicked Umibouzu away and turned the entire bank into ruins, “A monster’s family can only be a monster.”
“Speaking of which, Yoshiwara’s boss is really too strong. This time, the bank should be closed for a long time. The re-construction fee will be deducted from Hijikata-san’s mayonnaise purchase fee.” Sogo suggested.
“Why should you deduct it from my mayonnaise budget?” Toshiro shouted, “Whoever does it will reimburse it! Not even a bottle! Also, that guy shouldn’t be short of money!”
“Actually, the boss just replied to my message…” As he spoke, Sogo took out his phone and showed it to Toshiro.
Kawaki: [If you have money, you can buy all your favorite games~ If you are really embarrassed, let the V-shaped bangs eat less mayonnaise~]
“What kind of joke is this!” Toshiro directly smashed Sogo’s mobile phone and cursed.
“The money for this mobile phone is also from the funds of Hijikata-san’s mayonnaise budget,” Sogo said to a member of Shinsengumi beside him.
Toshiro turned to Shinsengumi and said, “Report the loss to the superior, and also report Sogo’s phone! Tell them that it was damaged during the battle with the space monsters!”
“Don’t worry, I’ve recorded everything,” Sogo shook the recorder in his hand, “I might really get promoted this time~”
“Give that to me!”
Looking at the two people who were starting to fight again, the group of Shinsengumi members acted as if they did not see it. After all, they were used to it.
“You’re back…” Kouka leaned against the window in Kawaki’s room and turned around to look at Kawaki with a gentle gaze.
“Ah” Kawaki scratched his head in embarrassment as if he did not know what to say. However, he still braced himself and walked into his room, walking to Kouka.
To be honest, Kawaki really didn’t dare to face Kouka now. Kawaki’s eyes were a little evasive, “That… I’m sorry… maybe I made you suffer…”
In the end, Kawaki still said it.
“You really are a gentle child,” Kouka said and placed her hand on Kawaki’s head, “It doesn’t matter. Because children being willful and acting spoiled is allowed. Moreover, my mood might have changed. Watching them from afar is enough. Watching them mature and grow up. Finally enjoy the life that should have ended.”
“In fact, I have always wanted to see you again. Not only was I’m curious, but I was also regretful. Perhaps I should have brought you along with me. You must be in great pain. Your eyes are filled with pain. Although I don’t know what you have experienced, I can see your pain, sorrow, and the despair you have experienced…”
“There is no such thing!” Kawaki retorted, “Sister, you have given me a new life! After this, all the choices are my own choices! I have always wanted to say thank you to my sister! Thank you! Sister Kouka!”
“It doesn’t matter, it’s a child after all…” Kouka said as she pulled Kawaki into her arms, “It’s okay, it’s okay to cry, it’s okay to cry today…”
“No, I won’t cry.” Kawaki looked up at Kouka in front of him and smiled, “Because I still have an agreement that I haven’t fulfilled, an agreement that I once ignored… So…”
“You’ve really grown up!” Kouka was a little emotional, “The child who was so shy when he took a bath has unknowingly grown up…”
“You don’t have to tell me about that!” Kawaki couldn’t help but blush.
“Can you tell me about it? Your life…”
“Sure,” Kawaki replied, but then he reacted, “Where are Kagura-chan and that baldy?”
“Kagura-chan just fell asleep. As for that baldy…” As she spoke, Kouka raised her head.
At this time, Kawaki noticed that Umibouzu’s head was stuck in the ceiling while his whole body was hanging. It seemed that he had fainted.
“This is the result of coming back drunk…”
Kawaki and Kouka chatted in the room until midnight. Kawaki was very tactful and only talked about some things that made her happy. Kawaki did not mention anything about Shouyou. He only said that he had met a gentle teacher like Kouka and a group of companions with different personalities.
Finally, Kouka asked what the agreement that Kawaki had previously mentioned was.
“I have made an agreement with someone to protect the things that he values the most!” After speaking, Kawaki grinned just like twenty years ago when Kawaki had just left Planet Heiwa and was asked to take a photo for his ID. At that time, the photographer asked Kawaki to smile. Kawaki thought about it, then looked at Kouka, who was standing beside the photographer and grinned…
