Ichika examined the keychain and thought on it and looked at a calender marked with a birthday sighn
'I remember this I made 8 of these and gave it to those important to me I was planning on giving it on Chifuyu birthday but she never came home'
Just then Ichika suddenly was filled with memorys of him on Chifuyu birthday. He remember's sitting on a chair with a cake on the table with candles saying 19.
He sat there waiting until midnight and as it hit midnight Ichika was disappointed and sad from Chifuyu not appearing on her birthday and on her free day as she promise "One-chan you promised me... I guest promises are to be broken instead"
Ichika blew the candle out and put the present he had prepared in a box and as the next day comes he get's up and see's she didn't come home and he thought to himself 'I guess I'm by myself now...' and when he opened the door he walked to school
But as he walked to school a car pulled up to his house and Chifuyu step out of the car and went inside and went back outside and looks both ways and yells out his name.
"ICHIKA! ICHIKA!" Ichika just kept walking to his schoolwithout turning around
As the vision disappeared Ichika took the box and laptop and left without a word back to his dorm.
Ichika entered his room only to find it empty with noone inside only a note on his bed, he picked it up and read it
"Ichika I want you to meet me tomarrow at the indoor I.S store room in the gym and don't get lost or I'll break your ass! from Chifuyu-sensie"
"I better go there or she'll punish me" Ichika got on his bed and looked at the items in the box. Ichika looked around until he found a picture of five people including himself in it in front of his house.
"Wait this was taken when I was still a baby! and who's that other baby?" Ichika turned the photo over and see the names of the people on the picture "Chiyuu-Orimaura, Akemi Orimaura, Chifuyu-Orimaura, Ichika-Ormaura, and Madoka-Orimaura"
Ichika was surprise when he heard that name Madoka-Orimaura. He remembered when he was 4 they played together until an accident happened, Madoka was kidnapped and was never seen again but Ichika remembered someone with the patch phantom.
Ichika wanted to know what happened to her but he was to tired and fell asleep on his bed.
The next morning Ichika went to class as usual but kept the picture and key chains with him. Ichika kept walking until he noticed he beingwas stared at by the girls from the school 'Do they really have to do that?' Ichika was annoyed by them doing that to him but tried to ignore it.
But anouther annoying person came in and bothered him "So are you going to be ready you imbecile?" Ichika looked up and sighed "Yeah and are you?" she looked at Ichika with a hateful glare and walked back to her seat.
In a couple of minutes the bell ranged and Chifuyu stepped in and began teaching. The class ended but as Ichika was about to leave Chifuyu walked out first as if signaling him to leave with her.
Ichika followed her to the gym and notice a I.S suit there "I hope you remember well do you remember?" she had a face that showed no emotion and stared at him "This... This is the first I.S I used"
Chifuyu smiled "I guess you remember everything" she then walked up to him and stared strait into his eyes as if looking for something "Um... what is it?" Ichika stepped backed but she kept staring into his eyes.
Ichika stepped back more and tripped so did Chifuyu. The both of them fell on each other and as they open their eyes they see their faces are in front of each other, Ichika was blushing lightly and Chifuyu laught softly "Just kidding" she got up and so did Ichika.
"Get to class now or you'll be late!" Ichika got up and walked to class and made it in time.
`The next day
Ichika got ready with his stuff and remembered 'Yeah today and friday we won't have school because of something the teachers are doing'
Ichika looked at his clock and see it's 7:00 am "I guess working out as usaul like I always do would make time pass" Ichika grabbed his kendo equipment and went to the school dojo and see's Houki practicing
"Um did I come at the wrong time?" Ichika backed out but heard a loud noise on the ground, he turned around slowly and see's a furios Houki "I CHALLENGE YOU!" Ichika wondered why but remember he still had the key chain and he hasn't spoke with her for 2 days straight.
Ichika got into the protective gear "Hey Ichika remember when I left from the Kendo compition?" Ichika turned to her "Yeah why?" "Did you win the match?"
Ichika looked at her "Of course I did but it wasn't fun without you" Houki blushed with a pause then put her head protecter on "Oh and Houki if you win I will give something to you but if I win I get a favor from you ok?"
Houki looked at him with a confused look "And why are you making this deal with me?" "Let's just say it's something like a present" the both of them got ready and striked each other
Houki went on the offensive and almost hit Ichika but pushed him back until he countered her and began pushing her back 'I guess he got stronger when I wasn't there with him but his strike's they seem hollow but have the strength'
Houki blocked the attack then attacked. Ichika could had doghe it but remembered the scene of a blade cutting him which made him freeze and got knocked to the ground. Ichika stayed on the ground and remember the pain but was bring back to reality by Houki shaking him.
"ICHIKA! are you ok?!" Ichika sat up and answered "Yeah I'm fine I just need some time to think" Ichika took his gear off and went to the shower room, he turned the water on and soaked in it for a good 10 minutes then turned it off and left.
'Ichika why did you get weaker? you were strong when we started but why... why did you get weaker?' Houki took her robe off and put her uniform on 'I hope Tabane-nee can look into his past for me, but I'm Ichika's room mate... Ichika... room mate' Houki started to think about Ichika but remembered she was in public "WHY AM I THINKING ABOUT THAT BAKA!"
Ichika sneezed and wondered 'Was someone talking about me?' Ichika continued to school and met Chifuyu and asked her "Hey Chifuyu-nee can I use a I.S for training since I'm going up against Cecilia-san"
Chifuyu clonked Ichika with her fist "Call me Sensie baka! But I'm only allowing you to use them for an hour and that's it!" Ichika thanked her and ran to the I.S storage room and took 2 I.S suits out "Let's see Raphael's are basicly walking armories and Uchigane's have a sword only and both of the I.S suits can barely fly but I'm going with the Raphael it can fly longer and fight ranged so I can take her blue tears down or go head to head"
Ichika got in the Raphael and started with target practice on the highest difficulties and nailed the targets with a score of 100 and only teachers that excel in range can hit the targets with 90-80 points but he only had 10 hits, and 10 shots fired "I guess I'm going with this"
Ichika kept practicing and praticing until Yamada came out telling him to return the I.S but was amazed as he fired from long range then used his booster to get close to the targets and changed to his smgs and took them out in a minute.
"Whao! Ichika-kun did you have practice with an I.S before?" Ichika walked to her "No I only used it once and it was 3 years ago" She looked at him "Then how can you get such a good score under 2 minutes the time that takes to complete the training even I can only complete it under 2 minutes but 30 seconds short of your score!"
Yamada was amazed by the show of marksmanship from Ichika "Ichika your a natural at weapons! I think you keep practising but let me be your oponent" Ichika got ready as Yamada got in a Raphael "Ready when you are sensie do you want to have a losing condition?"
Yamada sensie thought on the losing condition then had an idea "One clip in each weapon and who ever uses all the ammunition loses" Ichika thought that was a good idea and agreed to it "Ok starting the time"
The clock counted down from 5...4 ...3...2...1... BEEP! the both of them pulled their rifles out and fired at each other before switching into a diffrent weapon Ichika stayed with the rifle but Yamada changed to a smg and went into medium range and flew in the air then let out a storm of bullets on Ichika and as she let them out she hears a explosion.
The area was filled with dust as the bullets hit the ground and explosion kicked up the dirt 'His shield should be gone it's my win Ichika-kun' she let her gaurd down and a stream of bullets hit her 'Impossiable how could he not be harmed?!'
She looked and see his shields are halfway "That was pretty nice Sensie but please don't hold back!" Ichika let a volly of rockets and bullets straight at her.
'Yamada-sensie is good I can see why she's a teacher' Yamada shot the missles down and doghed the bullets 'Damn I'm out of rockets and smg rounds. I only have my sniper and pistol left with a grenade wait I got an idea' Ichika was just about to execute his plan but was hit with a birrage of rockets followed by sniping and machinegun.
'Ok just have to wait until she uses all the ammo then I win' Ichika shot 2 more shots at her and hit 'She's now half I think I can take her down with two more shots' Ichika looked at his inventory but see he has one shot left for the sniper rifle and 15 in the pistol and a lethal grenade.
"Come on Ichika-kun you should stop running!" just as she pulls the trigger she finds out she ran out of bullets 'I guess he won unless I can hit him with this last shot' but the hud showed a sidearm filled with ammo and was ready 'I guess I still have a winning chance'
