The thirty-eighth chapter of the Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator manga was released on August 26th, 2017.
Accelerator makes no regard for what just happened. Meanwhile, the girl in the suitcase awakens to find her in a precarious situation, and nearly falls to her death. When she is safe, she finds Accelerator and accuses him of touching her because he is an adolescent and she claims to be a beautiful girl that was unconscious, as that normally happens in a manga. Accelerator ignores her and tries to leave, but the girl follows him, asking help from him to get her down. But her right heel breaks and in her attempt to save herself drags Accelerator down with her. As they fall, Accelerator notes her strange heartbeat. Meanwhile, the girl is fearful for her own life, wondering if she's gonna die despite just escaping.
Her fears are allayed however when Accelerator uses his powers to save them both. The girl wonders what happens and Accelerator reveals to her that he is an esper, to her at least being a Level 3. Seeing that she could use him, she tries to have him "repay" her for touching her, though Accelerator doesn't care. She tries to threaten him by saying that she'll say that he touched her but once again Accelerator doesn't care and says she can do whatever she wants. In the end, she just simply follows him, much to his chagrin for her dress gathered too much attention. When Accelerator asks why she's following him, she says that she is doing whatever she wants as he said. She then tells Accelerator that she is hungry though he ignores her.
Finally, they arrived at the hospital, explaining to the girl why Accelerator had such a bad taste in clothing. Realizing that Accelerator may have ran away as well like her she starts spouting that she didn't run away but instead flew towards the future. Once again, Accelerator ignores her as he enters the hospital first. In Accelerator's room, Last Order demands that Accelerator explain to her why he has once again brought another girl with him. The girl explains that Accelerator is indebted to her and is basically her slave, much to Last Order's consternation as she demands to know what Last Order's connection is to her slave. As Last Order gets angry, Accelerator asks for a doctor, not for him but for the girl.
