105 War in the Forest 6  Difference in Power

I couldn’t do anything but to see Serizawa being kicked and blown away by that man.
It happened too quick. I couldn’t see any attacks at all, and when I realized it, Serizawa was blown away deep into the forest at an outrageous speed. Is he alright?
……I don’t think he will be after taking that hit.

「Hey, I told you to not overdo it. What would you do if he died by that?」
「……The hatch thing is just an hypothesis, right? So it’s not certain yet」

The tall skinhead man is talking about something with the man wearing a dark suit. It looks like they are talking about something without minding that I’m here.

「At present, yes. But we must not ignore the possibility」
「Taking that into account, I settled it with that extent only, you know? If you have complaints, then do it yourself」
「…………This talk is a waste of time. The target is over there. Let’s go」
「Tch……you should just do that from the start」

And the two men turn towards the direction of the camp while ignoring me.
……Not good. That place is not good. I can’t let them go.

「…………Hey, wait…………!」

While suppressing my shivering body, I squeeze out my voice.
I must not let them go any further. These guys are……dangerous.
Someone will die if they go through. I must not let them do it.

「……Ah, there’s another one, huh. Who is this guy?」

Cold eyes as if looking at an insect, as if staring at a stone. They turned towards me with such emotionless look.

「That boy is Akai Tsubasa. If I am not mistaken, he is a Level 3 【Fire Starter】」
「I see……We can ignore him, but what should we do?」
「On this occasion, just crush him」

My spine froze……that feeling is the same one as the time when I faced the white robed man. No……I’m feeling a more dangerous feeling from these two. I managed to stop them, but can I do something about them by myself?

「Don’t think of it badly, Boy. This is also our job」

Saying that, the man in suit walked slowly towards me. The man looks defenseless at a glance, but when I think about the exchange between him and Serizawa, I can’t see him that way. The offense and defense that can’t be caught in my eyes. Even that Serizawa who has abnormal kinetic vision and reflex, was defeated.
I don’t have the confidence to even beat this guy.

……No, it’s not whether I can or cannot. I must do it.

「……I won’t let you go through here……『Firewall』」

I activate my Talent at full power, turning the forest into sea of flames. The trees around 100 meters of radius from me, burn and turn into cinders in a blink of an eye.
Although I weaken the strength of the flames around me a little, my skin is still being burned. If I don’t have such resolve, I can’t stand a chance against them.

「Not a bad decision, Boy」

The guy who’s a few meters away from me, is standing calmly while being engulfed by my flames.
His surroundings are being burned by the flames. But the blazing flames bend away from him as if avoiding him. Rather than that, he’s smoking calmly inside the flame.

I can’t see a way to win at all. But beyond this point, there’s Kagura and the rest of students.
They are not that proficient at close combat.
If they encounter these guys, they would get killed in a blink of an eye.
I must not let these dangerous people pass through here.

……Even if I have to use my life.

「……Ku……『Fireball』!!」

While maintaining the flames, I start firing fireballs at him. The 6 fireballs shot at once, hit the man in suit……it looked like that. But……

「You see, we’re in a hurry. Don’t think of it badly」

Buon.
Hearing a sound that trembles my ears, the man suddenly appeared in front of me……pain ran from my abdomen suddenly, and my view became diagonal suddenly.

「…………Ah…………?」

Just like that, I fell to the ground without knowing what happened. Another sharp pain by the falling impact. ……He did something to me. What the hell happened……?

「……Kua……!!」

I try to stand up quickly, but a sharp pain runs through my body again. But still, I pushed the ground with my hands forcibly, and raised my body.

……Not yet. I can’t go down yet.
If I go down now, who will protect her? Didn’t I train for that?
I can’t afford to lie down here.
When I tried to stand up like that, my hands slip……I lost my balance and fell to the ground.

「……Wh……at……?」

My face plunged into the red puddle on the ground. When I raised my face desperately from the puddle……I saw someone’s lower half of body lying down in front of me. ……Wearing a pair of familiar shoes. When I realized it, red stains scattered to the surroundings.

「…………Ah……wh……at…………is this……?」

The surrounding red stains. That’s blood. And the thing lying around……that’s my own intestines. When I look at it, my body was teared into half. The lower half of body in front of me……that’s also mine. The intestines connecting the two are scattered around.
When I realized that, my arms lost its strength, and once again, I fell to my own pond of blood.

「…………Ka…………gura…………」

I can’t stand anymore. I can’t get up.
When I realized that, the thing that appeared was my childhood friend’s face.

Kagura. I have to protect her.
Hence, I have to get stronger. I can’t stay weak.
The moment I gained my Talent, my parents abandoned me, and I was shunned by every humans, but still, I haven’t repay her father who accepted me kindly. I want to be useful with this Talent or at least with this body.
To that person who treated me like a family, to Kagura. I still haven’t convey my words of gratitude yet. I feel I owe them a lifetime. But I can’t find the words to tell them. As a poor talker, I don’t think that I could find one.
That’s why, I did my best to protect Kagura to convey that……with actions and power.

I intended to do so.
Even though I thought so.

……In the end, I couldn’t protect anything at all.

I will approach my death here……weak without able to do anything.
I can’t protect you from now on.

The moment I realized it, I can feel tears flowing from my own eyes.

「…………………So………………rr………………」

At least, let me apologize……thinking that, I mutter with a hoarse voice, but midway, I vomited blood, so I couldn’t finished it.

Just like that, while the tears mixing with the blood……Akai Tsubasa stopped moving and passed away.
