Chapter 4: Anti-Government Espers
"Wow, you're pretty good. To be able to keep up with Aoi like that. She can be really serious when it comes to video games you know."
Currently, the group of children were playing a 3D fighting game in their room.
"I'm just lucky the game's a bit of a button masher, or else I wouldn't be able to keep up with her."
*ahhh* the sound of Haruko's Character dying. "Oh so close" Haruko sighed.
"No one can beat the Lightspeed Goddess." Aoi stated, a confident edge in her voice.
"Is that so? How about it Aoi? You against me, the Untouchable Empress."
"Hey no fair! I called going next!" Kaoru exclaimed.
Haruko giggled lightly at their playfulness. It was fun to see them so happy. "Fun and giggling seem like such foreign things to me since I was locked up in that place. But that's over now. I'm a government esper and they can't hurt me anymore. I don't have to work for them anymore."
Just then a siren went off and Minamoto burst into the room.
"There's been a precognition and it's already happening! A group of high level espers are attacking a local shopping district! I'll tell you the rest in the chopper! For now let's move!" Minamoto called out to The Children.
The Children promptly stood up, while Aoi teleported their uniforms onto them. Once that was done they quickly started for the door. Seeing how everyone was leaving, Haruko decided to follow.
"Hold on Haruko. Since you just started we'd like you to sit this one out. If you'd like, you can watch it on the news."
"Oh…okay." Haruko went over, and sat back down and watched as the door was closed shut. A spark of fear and pain coursed through her for a second. "Calm down. Calm down. Calm down." She silently repeated toherself till she did in fact calm down. After a moment pause, she crawled over to where the remote laid on the floor. Picking it up, she flipped to a random channel. Lucky for her it was a news channel and not only that, it was showing the recent destruction going on in the city. It was obvious the video was being taken from a helicopter. After all you'd have to be insane to want to be on the ground right then.
The ground below was billowing pitch black smoke. Random and countless explosions were happening as well. Lots of Buildings, trees and cars were all on fire. Haruko was divided. She wanted to help. Fire and ice don't mix, so she'd be a great help, but she was told to sit this one out. After a few minutes of debating, her need to help won out. She stood up and walked over to the door, but stood motionless when something on the TV caught her attention. It was the face of the esper attackers.
"No way, it can't be them."
"So like I said earlier, a group of espers are attacking the Tazaki (A/N just made that up. If it belongs to someone then it belongs to them not me) Shopping District. We are guessing they are Level 6. We already have some forces there already, but they are not holding up very well. Naomi and The Hound are making their way there as we speak. Your mission is to put a stop to the enemy espers with as little damage as possible." Minamoto informed The Children. He then proceeded to unlock their limiters. "The Children, released!"
Immediately, Aoi teleported them out of the helicopter and Kaoru took over and flew them the rest of the way. They met up with Naomi in the air. Together they flew to the shopping district and landed.
They were instantly welcomed with a car being flung at them. Naomi and Kaoru combined powers and thrust the car back the way it came only for it to explode moments later.
"Seriously, they send a bunch of kids to fight us. What an insult." A female lady said annoyed, from behind the cloud of smoke created by the destroyed car.
"Don't think of it as an insult. Rather, it is only proof of how the government works." Another voice, male this time, replied.
"It's true, and that's why we plan on destroying it." Yet another male voice explained.
The smoke soon cleared to show 3 adults standing there. 2 were males and 1 was female.
The female was of average height and had slightly curly, dirty blonde hair that reached mid back. She wore a shirt with flowers and big, flowing sleeves. For pants the woman had blue jeans that reached all the way to the feet and hugged her legs.
The first male had bleach blonde hair that was neck length and spiky. It was easy to tell he was muscular, but not overly so. He had a black shirt with 'I follow my own rules' on it in white. The man had camouflage shorts and had sandals on his feet.
The other man had naturally brown, straight hair that hung easily off his head. He was tall and straight and seemed to be the quiet one in the group. He wore a plain blue jacket on top of a plain purple shirt. His shorts were made of denim and were rounded at the bottom.
"Who are you and why are you doing this?" Kaoru immediately yelled at them.
The bleach blonde male just looked over at the group with lazy eyes and smirked. Another car was thrust at them which exploded before either had a chance to react. Once the dust cleared, the adults were nowhere to be found.
Shiho placed her hand on the ground and activated her ESP. She closed her eyes and concentrated. After a minute she still couldn't come up with anything. "I think I saw a glimpse of one of them over there in front of us, but they disappeared as soon as I saw them. I think one of them has psychometry. Though, I could be wrong."
Just then a blue bird flew over and landed on Shiho's shoulders. Instantly recognizing who it was she placed her hand on the bird and read its thought. "Sorry I'm late, but none of them have psychometry. They tall one has clairvoyance and sees when you are about to use your ESP, the lady then teleports them somewhere else."
Suddenly a billboard was flung at them. Unfortunately, they were too much in shock to respond. Then a blur of brown passed by and smashed the billboard out of the way. The new arrival morphed back to reveal it was Hatsune.
"Hatsune, thanks." Naomi replied.
Refocusing their attention the group looked up to where the billboard dropped from. They saw the tall man standing there. "They obviously don't have anyone else to fight us. They have to rely on their espers for power. The government doesn't even care that their all under 18."
"I don't think you get it." Naomi stated. "We chose to be government esper. It was our own decision."
"Do they let minors sign up for the army? No didn't think so." The woman deadpanned.
"Why are you so against the government?" Shiho questioned.
"Isn't it obvious?" the man with the spiky blonde hair retorted. "Governments around the world want espers. They use esper's abilities to increase their country's own standing in the world. Of course the power increase is always in terms of military power."
"We've had enough of being used by others." The other man stated.
"So you think wreaking havoc will make things better?" Aoi shouted back.
"No, we think wreaking havoc will make the normals realize just how inferior they are." The lady said a smirk present on her face. She continued. "I don't see why any esper would want to be used by those that are clearly mediocre. People don't let those who are below them govern them, so why should espers? We are the Anti-Government Espers and we plan to change that."
The man with the shirt with words rapidly let his hand fly up and a semi followed after it. The group quickly scrambled. They couldn't let the car hit the ground. That might cause major damage. Plus they weren't sure if all the civilians had escaped.
"We have to protect any more remaining civilians. Aoi, Shiho, and Akira (Akira is the bird that landed on Shiho. Just realized I didn't say his name) go and find out if there are anymore civilians around. The rest of us will stay and deal with these guys." Naomi quickly instructed, returning her attention to the still rising semi.
Kaoru swiped her hand in front of her face and created a slash of wind directed at the man. The man simply raised his other hand up perpendicular to his face and the wind dissipated. "You'll have to do better than that."
Feeling that the semi was high enough he forcefully brought his arm down. At a speed rivaling cars from NASCAR, the semi descended upon the three that remained. Kaoru and Naomi once again combined powers to stop the oncoming semi. Still with all their effort the truck did not slow down. Kaoru looked over to see the guy was still applying his ESP to the semi. Still the duo did not give up. Concentrating much harder they put out more ESP. Slowly the truck slowed down till it came to a complete stop mere centimeters from the pair's outstretched hand.
"*Chh* so close!" The man exclaimed snapping his fingers in front of him.
"Wait wasn't there three a moment ago. The other two adults looked over and also found only two kids standing there. "Maybe the other went with the others. Speaking of which should we have let them go?"
"Yeah, it's okay. Besides, it's easier to take on two than a whole-*ahhh*" The woman was cut short by something hitting her straight on in the chest. She was then forced up against a wall. The woman opened her eyes to see a furry hand being drawn back to punch. Moments later, the punch was thrown, but it only contacted the wall behind its victim. "What the…?" Hatsune questioned.
"Whoa, that was a close one." The woman sighed reappearing next to her comrades. Hatsune let out a low grumble and charged at the women again with more rage and anger. As Hatsune threw her punches and kicks, the woman just smiled and skillfully ducked out of the way, occasionally teleporting out of the way. "What's the matter? That all you got?" she taunted.
Kaoru and Naomi started to fight the other two with their psychokinesis.
Shiho and the others then returned to the main scene. "All the civilians have been successfully evacuated."
"Good job, Shiho!" Kaoru exclaimed.
Just then, a phone started to ring. The tall man answered it. "Hello, Lady Ito." He responded. "Yes, we're in Tokyo…No we haven't found her…well we haven't really started looking for her..."
"IDIOTS!" could be heard from the cell phone. This burst of noise peeked Shiho's interest and she started paying closer attention to the conversation on the phone. "You're supposed to be looking for her. *grumble* I don't care what you are doing right now, but HURRY UP AND START LOOKING FOR HER!"
"Yes, Lady Ito, we'll get right on it." The tall man with straight brown hair shut his phone. He then looked over at his teammates. "Lady Ito wants us to start looking for real now."
"*Aww*And just when I was starting to have some fun." The curly haired women pouted giving Hatsune a small flick on the forehead. She smiled and gleefully skipped away.
"*tch*" the bleach blond man grunted, dropping the mailbox he was about to throw. He too dashed over to meet his teammates."
"It's been very fun playing with you guys, but now we have to go. Tata." She gave them a small wave and a tiny smile then the trio vanished.
"Lady Ito sounded really mad during that phone call." The bleach blonde man said.
"She probably just wants to hurry up and finish what needs to be done here in Tokyo. Lady Ito might also still be angry that the girl got away."
"Hey you don't think that girl joined with the government espers do you?"
A/N: Okay, that may have not been very good, but I'm not the best at writing action scenes. That's something I need to improve on. Anyway, review and let me know what you think and any tips to for me to be able to get better. Thanks.
Next Chapter: The Anti-Government Espers are now being put as a top priority on B.A.B.E.L.'s list, and Shiho shares some of her thoughts with Minamoto and the other Children. What more will we find out about Haruko? What do the Anti-Government Espers need her for? Will I ever get a review? Next time on Escapist.
