-I’m not meaning to allow the whole Embassy in Japan, but several members of the Embassy, a small group, has created bridges with this world. My offering comes for those particular cases and as I said I do not care for their knowledge or technology.- Roshi took a sip of water and cleared his throat. –If any of us wanted them for that purpose sooner or later that nation will become a ticking time bomb. - The Leader of the JHWAB stood up and strongly finished his reply. – I do not need a glorified gun for hire to accuse of such crimes; at least the branch of your organization in Japan knows when to speak and when to be silent. If you won’t listen to what I say as I clearly stated we can’t support a large number and we don’t want them interacting with normal humans freely then I think you need a hearing aid.-
For a moment Roshi seemed angry, almost about to jump over the meeting table and clobber Isaac with his cane but he grabbed his temple, almost as if he was in pain and then he went calm and sat down again. This time sipping from the bottle he was given by Clair. Behind him, Oboide eyes were made of ice, his stern look around the table scanned the guests searching for the weakest link…

Velvela let her gun fall of her hand and lifted both arms, signaling her defeat. Seeing tears on Archer’s face was killing her. The Super Soldier Student quickly tried to calm the Young Teen. –I didn’t hurt him, I just sedated him, look at the side of his neck, and he has darts with red feathers. - Toramaru, still twitching in the ground clearly had those anesthetic darts on his neck. Velvela was clearly distraught by the situation. -I surren- but as she was declaring her defeat Reave’s attacks reached her, first a hail of bullets on her back and afterwards a kick on the back that sent her over Archer landing heavily on her back and rolling through the grassy campus, knocked out.
As these events happened Kojiro was helped up by Tetsu, who, even after receiving a crash course, didn’t feel comfortable with shooting a weapon, something that happened a lot to Martial Artists in the school. Wallaby was just getting up after being riddled with rubber bullets by Velvela, he was very silent as he stretched his limbs. Afar from them Hebi crawled through the ground towards the nurse office, swearing revenge on this group. He wouldn’t be able to graduate, but from now on, all of them would be stuck in the same hell he was.
Gen and Xi’ai took Reiko and Raisa to the nurse office and kept talking. Weird at it was Xi’ai didn’t dislike the Boxer blunt and brutal honesty, while Gen was making an effort to make friends in the school as his master instructed. Raisa and Reiko would be admitted and according to the Nurse they would be in top shape for tomorrow. As they were returning every student in the M Class received the same message through their communicator. –The Class has ended, see you tomorrow.-
-I think is better to end the class here. - Kenmei commented upon seeing the developments on the screen. He pressed a button that would let the students class was over. –Mr Degiraz, could you retrieve Velvela? - The Mercenary heard Fukitsuna-sensei but took a second to react, he was looking the monitors with interest. –What? Eh, yes, I will.-
He moved towards the door but before leaving he added. – I think I’ll keep an eye on those Imperial Scouts in your class; they seem interesting raw materials to train. You can’t train people to be that ruthless without breaking them. They could be interesting in the future after you had your way with them. - With that said Falken left to pick Velvela up.
Kenmei looked at Alexis. –Miss Romanov, considering we finished the first day of the job, will you allow me to fulfill one of traditions of the school and buy you a drink? I think Kotetsu will meet us in the pub. We can review today’s lesson and plan tomorrow activities. - The Metal armed teacher invited her with a gesture to follow him. Still this was just an invitation, not an order.
-Well then Miss Jaeger, follow us.- Garo and Kurosawa led the way towards the nearby town. It was a 10 min walk from the School gates to the outskirts of the Kyoshi Village. The small town originally was a holiday spot for wealthy families, just by the coast of the beautiful Kyoshi Lake. Upon the creation of the school the government seized the terrain to create lodgings for the students and staff. Upon the privatization of the school the town remained under the government rule, and after months of meetings Roshi Yasumori convinced them to turn the peaceful mountain town into an experiment of coexistence between the Normal and Hidden Worlds. Considering that most of the students belonged to the second it wasn’t an issue for them. With that solved the town bloomed with the apparitions of different peaceful Hidden World Denizens to start business and learn how to co-exist with humans.
Most of the businesses are run by Hidden World Denizens or people who know about it. Of course, all this exposition was given by Kurosawa-sensei to Artemis as they travelled towards the town. The streets were clean and tidy and filled with students from every year ding their own things. Garo was silent all the way, chewing tobacco and looking around. Even after quitting his former job he was still alert in all situations “You never know when an Oni could attack you.” He would say to explain his constant wariness of his surroundings. The two veteran teachers reached the door of the Gallagher pub, run by Anna Gallagher an Irish Merrow (A siren) who moved to Japan when her family arranged a marriage with a Kappa Clan. Her husband died in very mysterious circumstances and she decided to stay in Japan free of her family rule.
The building and its insides were completely modeled in the style of an Irish pub. –Well then Miss Jaeger, do you want to order?-
Andy smiled –Sure thing…Keiji was it? I’m paying, the only good thing of coming here is that I have a credit card from my folks and I can use it without limit.- The young heir to the Sniping family smile was contagious. –Ready for the best French Fries in the world?- With that said he moved towards the town.
Izumi also invited Batilda, Jean and Ayla, the first one accepted eagerly. The French teen wasn’t too convinced but Izumi politeness won her over. Ayla accepted swiftly and dryly, almost as she did it against her will. Truthfully she didn’t want to make connections with anybody, but she knew that having allies or at least seeming to have them could be useful. Izumi wanted to invite Yun Bai, but she had already left following Huang Mao from the shadows.
While the group of girls left a very unorthodox group composed by D-boy, Gino and Katsuo also left on their own, towards the town. Katsuo proclaiming something in the lines of –Proper men get to know each other in a bath-house… - What nobody heard was –And surely we can spy on some of the girls…- A whisper replied with vehement nodding from The Music Warrior and the Italian Blue Eyed Teen.
As they went towards the town, Batilda talked with Izumi about traditional Japanese sweets. Ayla walked in silence and Jean decided to talk to Alicia. –So what brings you to the school? I had some issues with the lab back home so I kinda had to come here.- The Savate practitioner hoped that revealing a bit of information could spark a conversation as she didn’t want to speak to Ayla, who scared her. And she didn’t have any interest on sweet things.

-I offer the same benefit for any Imperial Citizen in Japan, if you wish to remain in this world you will do it under the rules of it. But you won’t be disturbed or pressured to reveal technological information.- Roshi voice was conciliatory after formerly saying they should leave. –Of course there is a limit to the number of Imperials that could remain and their lodgings should be on an isolated locale if they want to remain using their technology on the open. There are multiple islands and artificial fortress in the sea that could serve for that purpose if they wish to keep their ways intact without contacting with the Japanese populace.-

Callis stretched after the fight and sheathed his blades with a single fluid motion. Gen spitted on the ground and popped his knuckles. George scratched his neck a bit uncomfortable after the fight. Armura’s body, like the rest of his comrades, started turning into black goo that sipped through the wrecked courtyard directly into the ground. As the Mighty Vampire Knight died the magical energy surrounding the castle started falling apart, like glass, shattering into bits of bluish crystal that vanished mid fall. A pulse could be felt from inside the castle, a presence of concentrated malice and power, which with each consecutive beat started to lift gusts of obsidian winds around the fortress. Cutting our heroes from the rest of the world, it seemed dangerous just by seeing it, but Gen was too curious for his own good.
The Spirit Boxer inquired on a brash manner before touching the wind. –What the fuck is this thing? - He plunged his right hand into the swirling vortex of darkness. For a second it seemed nothing was happening, but Gen’s face contorted into a mask of pain as he pulled his hand out in a rush. His skin was peeled off exposing in several places his muscle. The stains of darkness slowly vanished as the Spirit Boxer roared in pain. –AAAAAAAAAAAH!!!! THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT!?- He was grabbing his arm nearby his elbow as the residue of whatever was in the cloud died down. The Black Mist turned even thicker, now a curtain of darkness that covered all around the castle and over it. Everything went dark as it blocked the moon and star light. The former Delinquent arm started shining, as he summoned his Fighting Spirit to heal his arm, and created a dim light source around him.
Callis looked around with a mix of admiration and terror on his eyes. This was, without doubt, one of the most impressive things he witnessed in this world. –Any of you Messas or Messes know what’s this? I am completely and utterly baffled by this strange dome. - The Beast Knight was too shocked to be embarrassed and not even the proximity of two scantily clad women could alter that. While Callis didn’t seem to have especial problems about this, George was pretty much scared out of his wits. The Young Werewolf greatest fear was to return back to Ryugu-jo and this dome blocking out the stars and the moon he learned to love was a mute reminder of the time he spent of that underground hell and the privation he and his family had to suffer there. The Werewolf fell on his behind trembling in fear while he tried to speak, only to let out faint mutterings. His fear was clear.
Cavaler, the leader and last remaining member of the Scarlet Knights was sitting down in the middle of the Castle Main Hall. As the minutes passed he felt the deaths of each of his comrades, all of them protecting the King and their homeland. His blade piercing the floor in front of him as tears coursed his pale cheeks. As Armura’s life was extinguished, he stood up and raised his hand up high while he picked up his sword with the other. Over him a small black sphere, not bigger than the tip of his finger appeared, the room went dark as the sphere grew bigger and expanded like a wave in all directions. The torches that were touched suddenly went off, as if the bubble of black energy sucked the fire from existence. This process was repeated several times and created the vortex of energy that blocked the heroes’ exits.
-It’s time, my brothers and sister will get their revenge by my hand. My gift Sfârșitul will take of that. - He swatted his sword, cutting the air and testing its balance and sharpness. His voice transported through the black wind resounded in the whole complex, sure to reach every intruder.
The Black Sun rises in Midnight
Those who disturb Orasul Sange
Will test the edge of my blade in a Fight.
I challenge ye Unruly Mongrels
As my duty is to protect this realm
I swore that under Thousand Black Bibles.
With that formal challenge deployed he waited for them to come, ready to wage the last battle for the honor of his King and Kind.
Yuriko smiled when she saw her opponent blocking two of her three strikes. “This could get interesting, the runt has guts” She thought as Eun regained her balance and changed her posture to protect the place she hit. The Mistress of Fists popped her knuckles and her neck. –You ain’t bad yourself, so this could get fun.- Yuriko scanned her opponent and reasoned that Lilly would play it on the defensive side of tactics, surely stalling until the pain on her side stopped. The only good approach here was to do something unexpected, so Yuriko decided to mimic her opponent first move, not a logical step in a fight.
-Here I go.- The Fist Heiress launched herself towards her opponent with a running start, but a meter before range she suddenly stopped and charged with her shoulder, the beginning on one of her defense shattering techniques. –San Kageki no Raimei (三極端雷/Triple Extreme Thunderclap)- The shoulder bump served to lift the opponent defense up, or force them into an unbalanced position by avoiding it. The next move was an elbow strike to the gut using the same arm of the shoulder bump. Finally if connected the opponent would most assuredly bend in pain giving Yuriko a perfect target for a brutal backhand, all with the same arm.
