DISTRICT 7 A CERTAIN HIGH SCHOOL
A beautiful full moon hovered above the campus of A Certain High School. The building had little lighting due to the facilities being normally vacant at this time of night. But due to unforeseen circumstances and youth at its peak, there were a variety of characters occupying the campus for one reason or another. For example, one person was a beautiful girl with a long hime cut dressed in a red and white miko outfit. This young maiden was on the hallway floor and had a full blush due to suddenly being thrown on the ground by a young teen with short and wild blonde hair who was still wearing his school uniform. One may mistake this for a romantic seen where the boy confesses his love(Or other, perhaps unappropriated things), but this definitely isn't the case.
"Himegami? What are you doing here?" a look of shock was on his face.
Before Himegami could reply, the two youths heard multiple pairs of footsteps heading their way followed by 3 circles of light. "Himegami! Are you alright? We heard you scream." The feminine voice sounded strangely familiar to Kazeyare. He glanced up to see three of his classmates, Fukiyose Seiri, Tsuchimikado Motoharu, And Aogami Pierce running toward them. "Ah." they stopped and looked at the scene before them, a girl thrown on the ground by a boy who could be easily mistaken for a thug due to his wild blonde hair.
The first to spring into motion was health obsessed girl. "What the hell are you doing Kazeyare Kouta!" This was followed by a swift kick to his face, effectively knocking him off Himegami.
Why am I getting a strong sense of Déjà vu? Kazeyare thought as he was kicked back and landed on his rear. He held his face in pain as he questioned his classmates, "That's not important! What the hell are you guys doing here?" he said attempting to change subject.
Aogami smiled at his question, "Aren't you curious? About one of the Seven Wonders of Academy City?"
"Huh? Seven wonders?" Kazeyare said as he got up. "If I recall correctly, isn't Komoe sensei one of them?"
This time it was Fukiyose who replied, "These two idiots are certain that her appearance was due to an underground experiment that happened here at our school." She angrily turned to them, "I'm just here to make sure they don't do anything stupid!"
I understand why Fukiyose and those guys are here. "So why is Himegami here?" He looked at the shrine maiden girl who was now looking at him with cold eyes before slightly blushing and averted his gaze. She didn't seem like one to bother investigating legends or myths nor one to uphold rules. Don't tell me...
"Nyah, I told her Kami-yan was coming but he bailed on us! Said he had too much homework to do!" Aogami clenched his fist in anger. "How can that idiotic harem king turn down a night at school with our class cool beauty? It's a perfect flag raising event! Besides! Isn't he at least curious about our loli teacher?"
"You really are an idiot, aren't you Aogami?" Tsuchimikado interjected. "Our teacher may have the cute appearance of a loli, but she's not a loli herself. The definition of loli means young right? But you know as well as anyone else that Komoe sensei isn't young! She's even older than Yomikawa sensei!"
Aogami turned to face Tsuchimikado, "It's always the same with you, you bastard! Don't you understand? Yeah, it's true that she's not a loli, but besides her age, Everything else is perfect! Her height, her clothes, her hairstyle, even her personality screams Loli! Don't you think that the term loli has evolved into something more than just a label for young girls?"
Tsuchimikado was now visibly angry, cracking his knuckles as he prepared for a fight, "Aren't you the one who doesn't understand? So what if she looks like a loli? She's not! Nothing will change that! Lolis are young girls! So now every young looking girl is a loli? No! That's just idiotic thinking? Loli will now and forever be, a young beautiful girl!"
These two wills were about to clash. A difference of opinion over some might call insignificant. As the two grabbed each others collars of their shirts and prepared to utterly crush their opponent, they saw what the other was fighting for. One was fighting to advance and open the world to a new way of looking at lolis, while the other was fighting to keep it pure and in its original light. While they had a difference of opinion, they respected each other for fighting in what they believed in. It was never a question of who was wrong or who was right. After all, they were fighting over something stupid as the definition of 'loli'.
"BOTH OF YOU STOP THAT CRAP!" Everyone fell silent to the outburst. Kazeyare had focused the group's attention to the serious expression that he wore. "We don't have time for this! We need to get out of here now!"
Both Aogami and Tsuchimikado released their grip and unclenched their fist. "Oi, oi, calm down Kaze-kun. We're not going to get in too much trouble if we get caught here." Aogami replied attempting to calm down his classmate.
"That's not what I'm worried about! It's something worse than that!" Kazeyare yelled frantically. I've already wasted enough time here! Ayumi can take care of herself but I have no idea if that guy has any more friends in this city. Worse yet, Himegami is here! If he calls for help, we may not be able to get off campus. Right now, our best bet is to call Anti-Skill now and find someplace to hide until the authorities get here. He pulled out his cellphone and started entering numbers before he was interrupted by Tsuchimikado.
"Hey guys. What's that?" He pointed outside the window at the full moon. At first they only saw small black specs across the sky, but as the silhouettes grew larger and more distinct, they recognized them as people with wings flying toward them at high speed. "Shit! Everybody get down now!" Tsuchimikado and Aogami were the first to respond. They threw Himegami, Fukiyose, and Kazeyare on the ground. The sound of shattering glass soon followed as multiple creatures broke though, two of them kicking Aogami and Tsuchimikado out of the hallway and into adjacent classrooms as they entered.
Kazeyare's phone flew out of his hand when he was thrown to the ground, lost in the debris of shattered glass across the hallway floor. He glanced up to see who had entered the the school from the third floor. What he saw could only be described as something you see in a horror film. There were 6 of them, as far as he could tell, all of them had a similar appearance, slightly pale skin, pointed ears, crimson eyes, but the most disturbing thing was the set of bat-like wings protruding out of their backs. All of them were wearing a uniform of sorts, similar to that of the strange man he met earlier that night. A red suit with multiple sewing marks, black slacks though these lacked the rips in them. Then with a sickening sound, the grotesque wings retracted into the invaders backs.
What the hell is going on here? Just who the hell are these people? He recalled what Gunha said to him on the phone. Vampires? No way! That's impossible! In Academy City, everything can be explained or done with science. But these guys, nothing they did can be explained! I need to get everyone out of here!
"Ha ha! Did you see that Kuro? I kicked someone on the way in here! He flew like a rag-doll!" One of them laughed at his own accomplishment.
"Stay alert Yasu! Just because you killed an esper with a sneak attack, doesn't mean you can relax just yet! We're in enemy territory now." The tallest one of them scolded the one called Yasu.
"Why don't you relax a bit Gin? Since we've got to this city, It's been nothing but easy! The city of science has no countermeasures for a magical invasion. September 30th, remember?" The shortest of the six said with a slightly feminine voice.
"God's Right Seat huh? Those idiots should have just completely crushed this city that day! But due to their arrogance Academy City has now become a much larger threat to the magical society. Learn from the mistakes of those before you, right Alex?" The old one said as he stroked his long white beard.
"Heh? I kicked someone too on the way in, but he blocked it. He didn't go as far as the guy Yasu kicked. " the one with long black bangs which covered his face said in a depressed tone. Kazeyare assumed he was Kuro.
"Never mind that! Don't you guys smell something delicious? It must be Deep Blood! We should drink its blood just to make sure!" The largest and closest of the six spoke, baring his four unusually large canines for others too see as he licked his lips.
Crap! They know she's here! He looked over to see the girl known as Deep Blood next to him unconscious. Fuck! What the hell am I going to do?
"Forget about Deep Blood Borus! She looked so plain anyways! We can't drink her blood anyways unless you want to die?" the one known as Yasu waved the large one now known as Borus and his stupid suggestion off. "Instead how about a consolation prize for leading us here with that big ol nose of yours!" He reached down and picked up Fukiyose, who was also unconscious, by her long black hair, "She's got a nice healthy body! I'll claim this as my own personal ghoul! Your fine with that, right Gin?"
"It doesn't matter as long as we accomplish our mission to retrieve Deep Blood." Gin coldly replied.
"Well then," Yasu held her up to his face, his breath condensating on her neck, "Itadakimasu!" he opened his mouth to reveal his large canines, slowly approaching Fukiyose's slender neck.
Just as he was about to clamp down, a loud sound rang throughout the school coupled with Yasu's head jerking and falling to the ground as he released Fukiyose.
"Go now Kazeyare! Get Himegami out of here!" Before anyone could react, Kazeyare quickly picked himself up and princess carried Himegami away from the dangerous scene.
"Ah! they got away!" Alex said dishearteningly, "But that blonde boy, he was kinda cute! Hey Gin, can I go after them?"
"Sure. You and Borus go after him. Make sure that you don't drink Deep Blood." He said in a monotone voice.
"Oi oi, I was just shot in the head and none of you fuckers bother to ask if I'm alright!" Yasu clicked his tongue as the bullet wound on his head quickly healed itself. "Such compassion for comrades!"
Gin stared at him coldly, "I told you to stay alert, didn't I? Those two that you kicked are no normal people to react to our attacks."
They then heard the sound of clanking wood and metal falling on the ground from one of the classrooms that was demolished by the unexpected entrance of a high school boy flying through the doors. The sound stopped and was replaced by footsteps as a blue haired teen walked out of the destroyed classroom to face the six monsters.
"Hey now, I can't have you guys destroying school property and threatening my friends. As a class representative it is my duty to uphold the peace and sanctity of school." Aogami cracked his knuckles and gave them a defiant smile, "So let's have a nice little chat, fist to fist? What do you say?"
Gin merely looked at the boy with disinterest, "Alex, Borus, get Deep Blood."
"Yes sir!" With that Alex disappeared from Aogami's sight and appeared behind him, happily skipping into the dark hallway.
The hell was that? I didn't see anything! Teleport? No, I felt her move past me? Super speed? That's a troublesome ability. Aogami ignored the girl to focus on the giant lard named Borus rushing at him. He's pretty fast himself for a fat man, but. Aogami clenched his right fist and right when Borus was about to tackle him, he threw his fist deep into Borus' gut, stopping him dead in his tracks and flinging him back toward his comrades, causing a miniature quake in the building when he landed on the ground.
"Heh, that was quite the feat you did there. I'm surprised that this city might actually throw a challenge at us! But I am disappointed that Deep Blood is that plain girl and not this sexy one here! Such a waste!" Yasu shook his head disapprovingly and shrugged his shoulders.
"What the hell did you say you bastard?" Aogami was visibly angered as he clenched his fists and gritted his teeth. "Tsuchimikado! Let me handle this guy! Think you can handle the tall one and the old man?"
Tsuchimikado walked out of the room he was kicked in with a gun in his right hand, "Nyah, I'm not really to fond of going all out, but," he looked at the tall one who seemed disinterested in the whole thing, "With opponents like these I may not have a choice."
Yasu spoke up again, "What's with the death glare kid? I merely stated the truth! She's the kind of girl that blends in with the background! No appeal at all!"
"Like I said you don't understand a damn thing! All girls are beautiful! You can't see Himegami's true beauty! A nice body that looks perfect in a shrine maiden outfit, coupled with her long black hair in a hime cut! Not to mention she has a face that has difficulty displaying emotions! She's the ultimate Cool Beauty! Open your eyes you blind bastard and see that there is a girl out there for everyone! Not just kuudere! There is foster sisters, foster mothers, foster daughters, twins, widows, senpais, kouhais, fellow classmates, teachers, childhood friends, ojousamas, blondes, brunettes, brown-haired, silver-haired, long-haired, medium-haired, short-haired, girls wearing bobby pins, wavy-haired, twintails, ponytails, one-sided ponytails, twin braids, ahoges, curly-haired, girls in sailor clothes, blazers, judogi, kyuudougi, kindergarten nurses, maids, policewomen, witches, shrine maidens, nuns, military women, secretaries, lolis, shotas, tsunderes, cheerleaders, stewardesses, waitresses, goth girls wearing black, goth girls wearing white, girls in China dresses, frail girls, albino girls, fantasists, girls with split personalities, queens, princesses, thigh-high socks, garterbelts, girls who cross-dress as guys, girls who wear glasses, girls who wear an eyepatch, girls who wear bandages, girls in school swimsuits, one-piece swimsuits, bikinis, V-shaped bikinis, bikinis that barely cover anything, youkai, ghosts, animal-eared girls, etc.- any female is within my area of acceptance! If you can't understand that then I, the Fetish King, no, as my enemy you will know me as The Blue Demon will utterly crush you!"
His perverted speech resounded throughout the halls of the school and reached the hearts of the men who heard it, all of them thinking the same thing, I'm pretty sure one of those isn't a girl!
Kazeyare was now running for his life while carrying Himegami in his arms through the empty hallways of his school, trying asset the situation. Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck! What the hell is going on? Did Tsuchimikado just shoot that guy? Why do they want Deep Blood so badly? Aogami and Tsuchimikado, can they defeat those guys? This situation just keeps getting worse! I can't even call Anti-Skill now! "If all eight of the intruders are that strong, even the Level 5's would have trouble."
"Actually if you count master's sister, there's nine of us in your city." a cute feminine voice that sounded unusually close interjected.
"Nine! This situation is impossible! How am I suppose to stop this from getting worse?" He frantically replied to the cute voice.
"Hmmmm, well you can always hand over Deep Blood." The voice suggested.
"I can't do that! Unfortunately I'm not the kind of person to send someone to hell in order to save my own skin! In fact, I'd rather die fighting a losing battle than to give up someone's life! If I gave her to you guys I would become the type of person I hate the most!"
"Ahh! Not only are you cute, but your also cool! My ideal man!" the feminine voice screamed ecstatically.
Kazeyare merely deadpanned, "Oi oi, this isn't the time to be making jokes! Can't you see I'm running from Va-" a sudden realization came over Kazeyare as he started to sweat profusely from his face, not due to running for his life, but something else as he slowly turned his head to see young girl centimeters from his face flying next to him in the hallway, "Vam. Pie. Eres..."
The girl smiled in response and pointed to her face. "Like. Me?" she winked as she said this.
"GAAAAAAHHHHHH!" Kazeyare screamed in shock as he went from a sprint to a stop in a matter of seconds, the vampire girl landing a couple of feet in front of him.
"Hello cool boy! I'm Alexandria! Just call me Alex!" She introduced herself as she gave a cute pose. "Though I would love to play some more, I'm afraid that our time together has come to an end. So hand over Deep Blood now please? Or will you fight to keep her safe?" She slowly walked forward, closing the distance between them.
Kazeyare forced himself to put on a smile, "Sorry, but I'm not much of a fighter if that's what you're expecting." He tightened his grip on Himegami, his mind racing to find a solution while his feet were weighed down by his own fear. Is this... It? He fell to his knees, unable to keep himself up, struggling just to keep Himegami close to his chest. Is this what they call...
The vampire stopped just centimeters from his position, her smile replaced with a look of disappointment, "Is that so?" she lifted her hand above her head, preparing to strike the final blow, "I guess this is what they call GAME_OVER."
Just outside the school, a flurry of fiery explosions were occurring. Amidst the explosions, was a green haired girl wearing a Nagatenjouki uniform with a crazed look and tall lanky man in horrible stitched together clothes. These two monsters clashed in a war-zone called a sea of flames. Kihara lunged at the man with impossible human speed and threw a punch toward his face. The tall man reacted and brought his left arm up to block it, preparing to counterattack the punch.
Foolish girl, trying to fight a vampire in close combat? Though i admit your speed is impressive I-! His thoughts were interrupted by a large amount of pain surging through his left arm followed by the sound of bones breaking. He immediately retreated back but was swiftly pursued by the crazed girl.
"What's wrong old man? You look surprised!" she brought up her arm to attack his face once more. And once did the man bring up his arm to block the oncoming attack. And once again the same surge of pain followed by sickening cracking noises occurred. Again he retreated back, this time expanding his wings and took into the sky.
What the hell? No human should be able to do that! How the hell can such a frail looking girl break the bones of a vampire? He floated in midair, trying his best to asset his opponents powers and waiting for his arms to heal. She stopped and looked at him with the same crazy smile she had since they met.
"Oi oi, old man I know it's hard for you old bastards to multitask, but don't just float there." She extended her right arm in front of her and formed a finger pistol with her hand, "It makes you an easy target."
What the hell is she talking about? There's no way she can get me from here.
Her slasher smile now stretched from end to end of her face, almost splitting it in half, "Bang." a ray of fire extended from her finger and swiftly reached the man, piercing one of his wings, causing him to lose lift and he quickly descended to the ground. "I'm not done yet." she took off into a sprint toward his crashing destination. She reached into her purse and pulled out a syringe filled with a gaseous substance. She launched herself into the air and collided the the man in midair, stabbing him with the syringe as they clashed. she then took her free hand and forced it into his gut where she just stabbed.
"Pop quiz everyone! What happens when you ignite a large amount of highly combustible gas inside a person?" She said as if she were talking to a classroom of students.
And for once in this vampires life, he was afraid. Not afraid of death which he has seen and escaped multiple times. He wasn't afraid of failing his mission and being forever cast away from his loved ones. No, this was a much simpler and primal fear. He was afraid of her. The monster which appeared in front of him wearing the skin of a human. He was afraid because no matter how many lives he had, no matter the circumstances, this creature solely existed to do one thing and one thing only, destroy, would surely do just that.
"And the answer is, SOMETHING INTERESTING!" Immediately they were engulfed in a large explosion that resounded throughout District Seven. The flames died down and the dust settled, leaving only a large crater and a sole survivor, stretching her arms like she finished some strenuous exercise, "Ahhh! That was great! I really needed that!"
She started to walk away but her something dark grabbed her ankle, preventing her from moving, "Yo-you bi-tch!" she turned around to see the upper half of a burnt 'corpse' holding her. Though most of the body was gone, it was still showing signs of regeneration gaining some muscle and bone as it struggled to keep itself together. "I-I'll fucking kill you!"
"Oh, this is new. I've never been threatened by a corpse before." she no longer had the sadistic splitting smile on her face. Instead it was replaced with a cold and disinterest look, as if he was no longer there. Just a used up product to be thrown away and replaced. She kicked the hand holding her ankle, breaking it off his body like charcoal. "Even if you have infinite regeneration, it's not full proof. 1st it takes time to heal an injury. 2nd, even when you take a fatal blow, you still feel the pain, causing the regeneration to slow down. 3rd, and this is just a guess but I'm assuming the power is limited and you can only use it before you run out of energy, am I wrong?
The burnt 'corpse' gave no response as it's body stopped regenerating and slowly started to fade away and turned to ash, "Well guessing by your silence I'm right huh?"
"You're absolutely correct! Impressive work killing a vampire. Most would have trouble inflicting any kind of damage. Irwin was always such a strict man, always going on about being a gentleman. Now he's dead. The first of many casualties in my war." Kihara look up to see a man floating in the night sky. He looked to be in his 20s wearing a black tuxedo with a red tie and red shoes. He had a distinct white mask that had a butterfly design and a large black mantle draped over his shoulders.
"War? With Academy City?" she said with disinterest.
The masked man descended to the ground and laughed at her response. "Academy City? No no. My opponent is the entire human race. And you will also be a casualty of war! The spark that starts it all!" A bright red light formed in his open hand. "Now tell me! Do you have any last words?" he triumphantly cried out.
She sighed heavily, "Last words huh? Not really but I do have a piece of advice for you."
"Oh? Advice for your enemy huh? And what would that be?" he retained his prideful attitude.
"Invest in some pain killers, you're going to need them for what's coming next."
The masked man dropped the prideful attitude, "Huh? What are saying? That makes no se-" he heard something in the distance.
"Hyper Dimensional..." it seemed to be getting closer.
"Super Critical..." he turned around to see a small silhouette in the sky swiftly closing the distance between them.
"AMAZIIIIING KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!" a flying kick from the falling boy met the masked man's face as he was launched back 20 meters into the main school building, causing a large portion to crumble on itself. The boy lightly landed where the masked man once stood, carrying a high school boy with black spiky hair in his arms who was white with fear due the fact that Gunha ran the whole way here. On Gunha's head was a small girl wearing a sleeveless black and red Gothic Lolita dress who seemed to have enjoyed herself. "Heheh! Made it!" he threw a V sign in front of him to Ayumi, "Ah! Ayumi! W-what are you doing here?" he nervously retracted his hand as he knew he had broken curfew and Ayumi usually dealt the 'punishment'.
"Don't worry about that! You're late to the party." she sat down in the crater as she recovered from her fight.
Gunha gave her a reassuring grin, "Don't you know Ayumi? Heroes always arrive just in time to save the day!"
Sogiita Gunha and Kamijou Touma finally arrived to that nightmarish battlefield. The counterattack was truly about to begin.
