EP 3 – Strategies for winning in a new era (4)
“Mr. Yeo Do-yeon.”
Vice Minister Cha Jae-gyun said calmly.
“Aren’t you thinking of enlisting?”
“It’s that girl.”
* * *
The Deputy Minister lightly tamped the handle of the crushed wheelchair. It looks quite impressive.
“It seems to be true that psychics can become stronger when they absorb gems.”
Cha Jae-gyun nodded his head humbly.
“What would happen if Yeo Do-yeon absorbed the magic stones from all fronts?”
Yeo Do-yeon was startled, but I sat in a wheelchair and answered calmly.
“Well, it will either become Captain Korea or burst because of overload. Maybe it will turn into a monster. If that happens, I will be very sad.”
Do the biological test with someone else.
“Rep. Han Seung-moon.”
“Let’s go for a walk.”
The other party went back to the dormitory. The military commander in his early 60s took me to a secret room in a gloomy control area, indifferent to the word “walking”.
He pulled out a chair and sat down in front of me.
“First of all, thank you for the valuable information.”
“…Did you say that you are setting up a special committee to deal with monsters? At the National Assembly during wartime.”
There is a special committee in the National Assembly.
It is a committee that is temporarily established under special circumstances.
That’s what I said install it.
And it’s usually ‘very’ powerful.
The Special Ethics Committee was in charge of the qualifications and disciplinary action of the National Assembly members, and the Preliminary Special Committee reviews the budget. It is the force that holds the nation’s collar.
The same is true of the Special Committee for Response to Monsters.
It was a committee that did not know what task it would be in charge of, but like all special committees, it was probably a committee that would have very powerful and aggressive powers.
Cha Jae-gyun showed me the big picture.
“We can supply the Mana Stones collected from the national frontline unit. What do you think about gathering superpowers and using them tactically?”
replied without hesitation.
“Take a stupid psychic and make it our side. Let’s pour unlimited mana stones. I’ll see if I die or not.”
“Are you going to do a biological test?”
“You didn’t mean to?”
tock. tock. tock.
Deputy Minister Cha Jae-gyun sat quietly with his legs crossed, tapping his fingers and thinking. He closed his eyes and opened his mouth.
“I am the martial law commander in the Seoul area. He has all the judicial and administrative powers of ‘Seoul’.”
“The headquarters of the National Intelligence Service is located in Seocho-gu, Seoul.”
That’s a pretty powerful word.
“So… I don’t think there will be any problems with recruiting psychics and investing in mana stones. There is also the National Defense Intelligence Center, and there are enough intelligence agencies available.”
Why did this gentleman bring me here?
“What can I do?”
I must have brought you something to do. Unsurprisingly, Vice Minister Cha Jae-gyun quickly spoke up.
“The Special Committee on Response to Monsters, which will be established in the National Assembly, is likely to mainly deal with related bills on ‘unrealistic’ phenomena related to this situation. Is that correct?”
Interpretation: The Special Committee on Response to Monsters seems to be very smart.
“I hope that the safety of the nation will be taken into consideration for the psychic management bill.”
Interpretation: I’m going to do Dandori, a psychic, so please cooperate.
There are a few things that come to mind.
ban on immigrants,
compulsory military service,
summary execution for crimes,
Manastone forced nationalization.
I thought about it for a while, and I happily nodded my head and smiled because I thought it would be a big deal if I went against the planting of this gentleman.
“In the legislative process, we will fully consider the situation of a national crisis.”
Handshakes were exchanged in the secret room of the control area.
“What should I do?”
Yang Pan-seok, hearing the situation, bowed his head in a hoarse voice. He muttered in a small voice.
“It sounds like you want to create an army of psychics.”
“I would too.”
The usefulness of psychics has already been confirmed.
I don’t know if Cha Jae-gyun was going to lead a dictatorship with an army of superpowers or to save the country, but it was clear that if that happened, he would be really counting.
Besides, the lifting of martial law is done by the president and the National Assembly, but neither is now.
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, the commander of martial law, the army of superpowers.
Cha Jae-gyun is now the emperor of the Republic of Korea.
“We need to gather MPs as soon as possible.”
Martial law may be lifted with the consent of a majority of the expulsion members.
He said he could cut off Cha Jae-gyun’s left arm.
“I think so too.”
Members of Parliament can file an impeachment inquiry. In order to be impeached, the Constitutional Court must decide, but the acting minister (commander of the military) is immediately suspended.
He said he could cut off Cha Jae-gyun’s right arm.
I don’t know if Cha Jae-gyun is a hero or a villain,
Originally, politics was a discipline that did not distinguish between enemies and those who could become enemies.
Because I live first.
“Where have you been?”
“I come knitting with high-ranking people.”
Yeo Do-yeon unconsciously tried to hit me, but she was startled and lowered her hand.
Suddenly, I remembered Yeo Do-yeon hugging me tight and squeezing it on the Han River. He carried me as hard as he could and ran, and he just stayed with me.
But I’ve never been hurt.
“I didn’t feel any stronger…?”
“Try it once.”
When she reached out her hand, she tapped the back of her hand with a reluctant expression on her face. In this case, it cannot be measured.
“Oh, a little harder!”
With a slightly anxious expression, she threw a weak punch in the palm of my hand. It’s not that powerful.
I can’t. Special measures are required.
I patted her waist holding the wheelchair behind me. with the back of the head.
“what? Why are you so soft?”
“How long has it been since you exercised to gain belly fat?”
Yeo Do-yeon, who hit the back of my head with all her power, was startled and squatted down in front of me.
“It’s okay, are you okay?”
“Ugh! Ah, ah! Oh…!”
“Aren’t you hurt!?”
“Ah, ooh, skull, skull!”
Yeo Do-yeon got up to call the doctor because she was scared, so I quickly grabbed her wrist and smiled broadly.
“Isn’t it that painful?”
“I don’t think the person who smashed the wheelchair handle hit him. It just felt like it was hit every day, and my belly fat was soft…”
Yeo Do-yeon smiled softly at my words.
“So, you’re saying you’re the only person in the world you can hit with your heart?”
“Brother, are you okay?”
“Oh, uh, uh, uh.”
Yang Il-ho touched me as I was lying on the bed.
“Your sister was beating me like a dog.”
“I’m often hit, so I’m used to it now.”
Yeo Do-yeon made me into a porridge and disappeared somewhere with a chuckle.
It became clear that I am also a superpower. First of all, it is abnormal to be okay even after being beaten by Yeo Do-yeon.
Wherever Ho-jeong Lee got her shoes again, she came to me again and again. Even the middle and middle hair that looked like rags had been neatly combed.
“Are you able to decorate in such an environment?”
Even the torn stockings were replaced with new ones.
“Did you say you came here knitting with high-ranking people?”
“Ugh. The deputy minister did a good job.”
“While we were knitting, we gathered information together with Ilho. Can you see and hear me?”
“Our aides do a really good job.”
I nodded and sat up. Ho-jeong Lee began to report bluntly.
“There are roughly three things you need to worry about.
First, a lot of people have died now. at least one million.
Second, the UN called this a ‘gate incident’ and issued emergency guidelines. But you don’t have to worry about it because each country has to do it on their own…”
What’s important is this. Hojeong Lee handed me a smartphone. It is a capture copy of Internet articles and community sites.
“Finally, rumors about superpowers are spreading. It seems we are not alone.”
“The world is going crazy…”
“A corpse, a monster, a superpower, just. A starry photo is just coming up. Whether it’s the internet or the real world, it’s the same thing that you can’t control.”
Yang Il-ho asked with an anxious expression.
“Brother, what are you going to do now?”
“……Well, I have to write a winning strategy.”
“The evacuation operation was roughly established. It looks like a defense line has been formed in the northern part of Seoul now. Goyang-Uijeongbu-Namyangju. Do you know where it is?”
I do not know.
“yes. It would be nice if we could stop it in the northern part of Seoul.”
“okay. Refugees are now gathered in Dongducheon and Pocheon in northern Gyeonggi Province. It seems to be widely accepted in the Gangwon-do direction sequentially.”
Yang Pan-seok opened the map with his smartphone and showed it.
“Gangbuk is going smoothly. The problem is Gangnam.”
“Did something happen?”
“If it’s a job, it’s a job. A monster was found in Anyang.”
“…it seems to have spread to Gyeonggi-do.”
“It looks like the siege was broken because the 7th Corps was moving so quickly. They said they would create a temporary strike force to clean up the rear, but it’s a mix of monsters and civilians…”
suddenly. At this time, I thought how wonderful it would be if superpowers appeared.
People who can only kill monsters without using tanks or missiles.
“…the psychic unit is desperately needed.”
“No, Yeo Do-yeon catches the monster. Wouldn’t it be great if Gam Ji-yoon could evacuate by floating people? Of course I wouldn’t do that.”
Yang Pan-seok nodded as if there was a reason.
Anyway, that’s not important.
A soldier’s work is entrusted to the soldier.
we are politicians
“I think the power structure in Korea will be turned upside down. Are my guesses correct?”
“The top of the pyramid has already collapsed. All that remains is to crawl up from below.”
Politicians should do politics.
Fighting monsters isn’t the only thing that exists.
All those in power are dead. There will be blood clots in its place. A fight between people.
“I don’t think it’s enough to be a member of parliament alone to increase power.”
“……It’s not like that.”
The game ends when Cha Jae-gyun points his gun at it.
“Members, please go to the Underground National Assembly and gather the lawmakers. People will not see the National Assembly as a hogu until a special committee to respond to monsters is established.”
“…what are you thinking now?”
“I will stay in Gangbuk.”
Yang Pan-seok’s eyes widened wide.
“What does that mean now?”
“Vice Minister Cha Jae-gyun is already preparing to create a psychic unit. Didn’t you report me to the NIS?”
Yang Pan-seok gathers lawmakers.
“I don’t know whether Vice Minister Cha Jae-gyun will be on our side or become a dictator. It is clear that psychics become very important.”
I collect superpowers.
“To prepare for a chaotic future, shouldn’t we approach it in different ways?”
Cha Jae-gyun and Yang Pan-seok could be on the same team.
Maybe you can set up an angle of opposition.
Jungkook in the fog
Does not matter.
“As Senator Yang Pan-seok’s henchman,
I will remain with Vice Minister Cha Jae-gyun.”
