Chapter 106: Blackbird's Borrowing

From the surveillance video at the scene, the strange applicant who came voluntarily to the door was a woman.

She was tall and graceful, with long, glossy black hair cascading down to her waist. Her figure appeared curvaceous in a tight black outfit.

Even Uesugi Kiyoshi didn't focus on such a stunning body.

Because compared to that, her thick lips were much more eye-catching, looking like two blood-sucking leeches hanging on her face, sending shivers down one's spine.

When Uesugi Kiyoshi sat down in front of him, the strange creature stood up oddly, smiled warmly, and revealed two rows of sharp teeth.

"Hello, I am... You can call me Blackbird. May I ask who you are?"

"Uesugi Kiyoshi."

Upon hearing this name, the strange creature froze for a moment, then suddenly spread its two wings from behind, looking like a black bird.

Is it trying to escape?

Uesugi Kiyoshi was regretting his hastiness, but the other party quickly calmed down, folded its wings back, and even managed to smile.

"Sorry... I got too excited."

Uesugi Kiyoshi nodded, indicating his understanding.

"...So, Mr. Uesugi, may I please introduce myself first?"

"Please go ahead."

............

Japan is a country with many mountains. Besides famous spots like Mount Fuji and Mount Aso, most other mountains have not been developed or utilized effectively.

The mountain roads are rough and rugged. Among the numerous mountain enthusiasts, there are always a few who fall into the valleys due to slipping and are unable to move.

With poor signal in the mountains, it is impossible to communicate with the outside world. Injured individuals who don't fortunately encounter hikers can only walk towards death in hunger step by step.

At this moment, Blackbird appears.

Of course, she cannot rescue the injured individuals, but she will kiss the ones in distress and feed them with delicious raw meat and blood stored in her cheek pouches once a day without fail.

To the starving individuals, this sensation is like the most heavenly taste spreading in their mouths. Without these things, it is difficult for them to survive, so they consider Blackbird as their lifesaver.

Until they are rescued!

Even though the survivors had been rescued and transferred to a safe ward, Blackbird still continued its daily ritual of feeding fresh blood and flesh through closed doors and windows.

Unable to escape or hide, they could only shiver in horror as the flesh and blood became something disgusting instead of delicious!

If they were to test the flesh, they would discover it came from humans, to be precise, from the victims themselves.

They were consuming their own flesh and drinking their own blood.

The feeding process lasted anywhere from two months to just over a month, concluding with the eyes as the final meal.

Then followed a period of calm, when the victims thought everything was over, but Blackbird would reappear.

This time, instead of feeding flesh, Blackbird would tear flesh from the victims' bodies.

Blackbird would take the victims to Mount Fuji, using the extreme cold there to preserve the flesh's quality, then tearing off pieces of flesh to eat each day.

Some of the flesh consumed by the victims was now being eaten by Blackbird.

When Uesugi Kiyoshi heard this, he couldn't help but interrupt Blackbird's story.

"Wait, so you mean you can travel through time and space?"

"Travel through time and space? No, I don't have that ability!" Blackbird quickly shook her head, "But the pouch in my mouth is like a portal to the future, allowing me to send things from the next year to the present."

She seemed to remember something and hastily added, "This pouch is part of my body, if taken out separately, it will stop working!"

"I see." Uesugi Kiyoshi breathed a sigh of relief.

That makes sense. The ability to travel through time and space is incredibly powerful in any situation, so if the other person had that ability, why would they come here for a job interview?

"Please continue," he said.

Born as a strange creature of nature, Blackbird spent decades in a daze, thinking she would continue like this, but she witnessed firsthand Uesugi Kiyoshi's rise to wealth and the ups and downs of strangeness.

The gruesome fates of her predecessors woke Blackbird up, realizing that one day, if she continued like this, she would end up the same way, caught and drained of the last drop of her essence.

Blackbird couldn't accept this ending. She thought long and hard before figuring out a way to escape the situation.

Since she couldn't escape her controlled destiny, why not approach it willingly?

As the first strange creature to surrender voluntarily, even if it is to set an example for others, the research institute won't cause her any trouble, right?

"You're absolutely right!" Uesugi Kiyoshi exclaimed genuinely.

Even if the other party is useless, he will praise them highly to set a good example and attract more strange creatures to surrender themselves.

"Speak up, what are your terms?"

"An eight-hour work day and human flesh. Of course, it doesn't have to be alive, something grown in the lab would work! If that's not available, even shed human skin will do."

"Your wish is my command!" Uesugi Kiyoshi snapped his fingers. "But for redemption, you must spend an hour each day giving media interviews and confessing."

"Of course, sir!"

"We shouldn't delay this, let's start working now. Let's have the future me send over a kilogram of californium!" Uesugi Kiyoshi instructed.

Californium is the most valuable metal now, valued at 3 billion yen per gram. It is crucial in the nuclear power industry and widely used in the medical field.

Despite ruling a country, Uesugi Kiyoshi never had enough money. Getting money from his future self would be the best.

Hoshimi Rie scoffed beside him, "Mr. Uesugi, knowing yourself, would you give away your belongings to your parallel self for free?"

...Of course not!

Uesugi Kiyoshi immediately denied his thought. Putting himself in another Uesugi Kiyoshi's shoes, he wouldn't give a gram of californium either!

It's too bold to expect expensive materials just based on having the same face!

Blackbird added, "Your Excellency, I have to mention that my cheek pouches can only store fresh human organs, other materials cannot pass through!"

It seems we can only ask for information.

Information can be easily copied, and making a copy doesn't cost much.

Getting access to future technical information can speed up technological development by several years, making it much more valuable than just a little material!
