110 War in the Forest 11  Awakening

I woke up in the forest.

Hearing countless explosion sounds coming from afar, and smelling something burning from somewhere. I woke up due to the stimulus of the smell and sound. When I look around while lying down on the ground, the Variants that were appearing nonstop a while ago, are not here. ……Where the hell they went? And also……

「……Uwa……What……is that……?」

I somehow stand up while enduring the pain, and when I look at the direction of the explosion sounds, I can see fire pillar rising far in the forest. Smoke rising around it. The burnt smell looks to be that. ……What is going on? And also, why am I at this kind of place……?

「……Right, I was blown away. By that dark-suited man」

My head can think finally. My consciousness is still hazy, but……it’s fine. There’s a dull pain on my whole body, but I can somehow move my body. Akai is probably fighting over there. I need to go back to there quickly.

A dull pain is running through my whole body right now. Rather, it’s strange that I only end up with this extent of pain when considering that I was blown away from there. But it looks like it reached my bones. It’s impossible for me to run like this……but I somehow feel like I can use my Talent’s power very well right now.

「『Ignition』」

When I activated my Talent, my body rises easily.
As expected, I’m in good condition on that. And I start to move towards the fire pillar. There’s no problem in acceleration. Even if I accelerate to the extent that the surroundings look distorted, there’s no uneasiness in the control. I feel like I’m slipping through the trees as if the trees are avoiding me. ……If like this, I can raise my speed much more. I accelerate in one go towards the destination.

「……Huh? There are still some over here」

I can see the crowd of 『Variants』. I don’t have the time to stop and defeat them, but……if possible, it’s better to advance while defeating them. That way, the danger of Merisensei and the rest will decrease even though for a small amount.

「『Heat Ray』」

Then, I activate the newly learned 『Heat Ray』, and shoot it at the Variants’ heads. when passing through. Some time ago, I didn’t feel that I can hit them while moving, but now, I feel like I can do it. Just like that……I can actually do it when I tried it.

……What……it’s unexpectedly simple.

Once I got used to it, I can even use it while moving like this. Rather, I wonder why I thought I couldn’t do it up until now? Even though it’s this simple. Just like that, I destroy every head that caught my eye.

……Ah, I’m starting to feel better. The pain is gradually fading. I feel very ease right now. I feel like I can do a lot of stuffs right now.

「……Nn, the fire pillar moved……over there, huh……?」

The fire pillar is moving. Akai should be there.
The enemies from before should also be there. I need to go back there as fast as possible. Thinking that, I accelerated further. Although the sight of surrounding Variants distort as if it flows like a slide, I destroy all the heads of the 『Variants』 with 『Heat Ray』without any difficulties, and head to the destination.

……What……this is really easy.

Why did I think that this kind of easy thing would be hard? I start to feel the me who thought it was impossible, is an idiot.

……And right now……I can’t feel the pain on my body anymore.

Rather than that, my body can move freely. It’s really comfortable.

……It feels really good.

And……my sense is very sharp.

To the extent that I can even feel the movement of particles in the surroundings.

…………Ah, right now…………I feel really good.

「……Here, huh……There you are, Akai……」

And I reached the place where the fire pillar rises immediately. As expected, Akai was fighting against the skinhead man. In the sea of flames, the two are fighting.
……But where is that suited man? I can’t see him.
I approach Akai in the fire.

「……Hey, Akai. Where did that guy go……?」

A very low voice came out from my mouth. As if it’s not my voice.

……It can’t be helped. My body is worn-out due to the impact a while ago. Fortunately, I can’t feel the pain for some reason, but if I raise my voice, I’m sure somewhere in my body will reverberate. That’s why, I think I’m doing this. I’m sure of it. That’s why, my voice is this low.

「……Serizawa, you’re alright……? That guy went ahead. But this guy is blocking the way……so I can’t get through……!」
「……This guy……?」

When I look, the skinhead man created some kind of transparent wall, blocking Akai’s flame. Ah, it’s because of this wall, huh. That man……is beyond this point. Then……

「『Principle (Serizawa Atsushi)』……you survived. But I won’t let you……」
「Be careful, Serizawa. This guy……!」

「『Get out of my way……Disappear』」

An unbelievably low voice came out from my mouth.
Immediately after that, a mass of air in front of the man was heated up, and exploded. The transparent wall created by the man was smashed by the blast, and the man was blown away to the end of the sight.

「……Wha……!? Serizawa, what was……!?」
「……Well then, let’s go」

I need to go to where the man who was blown away, is. I think that way from the bottom of my heart.

……Huh, what was it?
Why do I need to chase after him……?

「Hey, this is bad. The direction he’s flying to is……Shit!!」

Saying that, flames jet out from Akai’s back, and he flew towards the direction of the skinhead man at quite some speed.

「……Ah, I see. I also need to hurry……」

That’s right. We need to chase after him. That man who I blow away……I need to chase after him right now.

After all.

I

Them

「『I need to destroy them after all』」

……That’s right.
I think that way from the bottom of my heart. That’s the thing I must do right now.

I can hear a voice from the innermost depths of my heart. Saying “That’s fine”.
I obey the voice. I need to obey the voice. If I obey it, I will feel good.

Ah…………I’m starting to feel very good now.

「『Ignition』」

Just like that, I accelerated quickly. The scenery flows as if it’s melting. I approached Akai who looked like a speck immediately. Akai is being blocked by the skinhead man’s wall again.
Ah……what are you doing? If you stop at such place.
You won’t be able to move forward. …………I will destroy such wall for you.

「Akai……『Move away』」

I exploded the air to blow Akai to the side, and punched the wall created by the man.

「『Heat Up』」

And I heat it up in one go.

–Dogon!!

The place I was touching, flashes at the same time as I feel a light shock on my arm. The man was blown away along with the broken wall while moving down the trees.
Ah……now that’s better. Now we can move forward. Now, let’s go.

「……Wha……Serizawa……!? What are you doing!?」
「…………What do you mean?」
「That direction is where everyone……Kagura, the non-combatants are, you know!?」
「……………………I see…………everyone is…………?」

I see. So that’s why. ……So what’s wrong with that? ……I don’t understand. Akai, what are you trying to say……? I don’t understand.

「……Hey, Serizawa……!? What’s wrong with you!? Are you alright? You’re a little weird!? ……No, now’s not the time……Shit!!!」

Akai said that much again, and flew away again. The surrounding trees break and blow away. I mitigate the shock wave by decreasing the temperature rapidly, and I control myself with the wind pressure from falling down.

That was dangerous……I almost fell to the ground. ……That’s right. I need to go. I need to hurry.

「『Ignition』」

Just like that, the scenery slides again. I overtook Akai in an instant, and this time, I reached the skinhead man first.

「……Wha……!? 『Principle (Serizawa Atsushi)』……how did you……!?」

Ah……this guy is also persistent. He’s waiting with the same wall again while bleeding all over. ……Good grief, how many times I must tell you that such thing is useless.

……This time, I will destroy it for sure.

「『Heat Up』」

I heat up the pebble’s bottom rapidly to strike it up, and when I pick it up, I heat it even further. The pebble melts gradually and became an orb, and start to shine gradually……and small beam of light started to appear.

This is it……this should do it. If I shoot this to his head–

「Serizawkun!!! Don’t do it!!!」

I heard a voice from my back. Who?

……This voice is……Merisensei?
Sensei should be evacuating with the rest, right?
So why is she here?

No, by the way……what……am I doing?

「……Huh? Why am I here……?」

……Right. If I’m not mistaken, I was running with Akai to protect everyone………………what happened after that?

「……Nn……? What was I doing……?」

My memory is……vague.
I feel like I’m dreaming of something just now. My whole body hurts. I can barely stand……no, impossible. I can’t at all……my whole body is screaming.
By the intense pain that came suddenly from nowhere, my breathing gets out of order.
Hey hey, wait a minute……did I move at such condition up until now……!? How……!?

In addition……!!

「……Hey……what……is…………this……!!?」

The thing in my hand right now is…………certainly the same thing made when I was training with the gorilla.

Is this perhaps……created by me……? ……Right?

………………Shit.

Shit shit shit shit shit shit shit shit shit!!!

What the hell am I doing!??
If like this, at this rate, everyone will……!!!

「Serizawkun, cool it down right away!!!」

I hear Merisensei’s voice once again.
……Right. This is something made from heating up. I just need to do the opposite thing.
Thinking that, I cool down the shining orb in my hand. My whole body hurts, but I can’t worry about that now.

「……Done……!!!」

The orb cooled down in an instant and became a cold pebble. With this, the worst-case is gone. When I thought of that, I vomit a large amount of blood. There’s a large red blot on the ground.

…………What’s this? My blood? ……Right?

「……Ah……?」

Gopuri.
Vomiting a large amount of blood as if it continued to accumulate up until now, I fell on the spot.
A shock reverberate my whole body when I clash to the ground defenselessly.

A very soundless pain.
An intense pain attacks my body as if cursing the things that I have forgotten up until now. Arms, internal organs, neck, legs, stomach, and……intestines. Every organs screamed. An orchestra of scream. My body twitches due to the pain, and I couldn’t breathe.

This is…………bad. I can’t get up anymore.
I can see the figure of the enemy I encountered just now. But I’m already……

In my blurring sight, I saw Merisensei running towards me and……Akai and Kurasaki-kun starting to fight as if to protect her.
