77. Even special moves must be practiced to be better at it
At night, to be exact, 7 pm.
Atsushi and Yuri, parted with Kaede and were on their way home together.
『”Well well～, Amusement park, it was fun, right? I went to the amusement park several times on school events, but I didn’t get along well with other classmates, so it was just a hellish time. Today, it was really my first experience to go to an amusement park and have fun!!!”』
“Hmm, I can agree with that, but… that, just forget that past.“
It was a word that was directed to Yuri, but at the same time to Atsushi himself.
He too had almost zero happy memories of going to the amusement park for school events.
『”But, we couldn’t get nice photos at the purikura until the very end. I never thought it would be so difficult to take a picture with that… Aaah, if only we had more time…”』
“It’s okay, isn’t it? This is also in a way, not bad as a memory. And…”
“We can always go to take photos at purikura together again. It’s just a matter of time before we get better at it.”
Atsushi and Yuri were in the same school and in the same class. Then, of course, they still could go anywhere anytime from now on. There should be one or two opportunities in the future.
『”Yeah, right… At that time, please make an effort so that Atsushi-san is no longer has a smile like a murderer, okay?”』
“Oi, you keep saying whatever you want since a while ago, but my face isn’t that scary, you know? Right?”
『”No, no, it’s scary. It’s definitely the face of a murderer that had killed five or six people. Would you like me to ask the opinion from my father or the chairman?”』
Yuri sounded confident when saying it. And apparently, it reminded Atsushi that his smile was really scary.
And that was why,
“… You too, wasn’t your face as usual when we took the photos? Even though, your smile is cute, so why do you remain expressionless just now?”
What Atsushi was thinking, spilled over.
『”… A, Aa～, Atsushi-san? Did you just say I’m cute?”』
“… Oh, a, n-noo? Did I say that? You misheard it, yeah, it must be.”
『”Eee, Don’t lieー. I did hear you said that clearーly, you know?”』
“Shutup. Humans may instinctively say strange things. More than that, you are―――”
Atsushi who tried to argue, suddenly stopped his words.
No, it wasn’t just words. Yuri instinctively asked a question because his expression changed to fighter-like in an instant.
『”Ah, Atsushi-san? What’s wrong……?”』
“Be quiet. And, stop talking.”
Yuri couldn’t send telepathy to the serious words of Atsushi.
” ―――Why don’t you all come out already?”
This was a night road in a city with few people.
However, from the back alley, several giant men appeared.
“What. What do you all want?”
“Don’t get any closer to Kaede Hirose”
One of the men answers the question of Atsushi in a straightforward manner.
“Suddenly came out, and straight looking down at me huh. So? What if I turned it down?”
“I’ll make you with the woman there, taste something painful.”
A quick and simple answer.
With that, Atsushi immediately understood that the other person wasn’t joking.
The number is about five or six… There is no problem with the number of people, but these guys are not just your normal thugs.
It wasn’t an impression of looking at the body. Their attitude said as if they were actually working behind the scenes. Different from the previous bad guys. The atmosphere they gave was that of a professional.
The best choice is to carry Shirasawa and run away. Well, the problem is how to make that gap…
The men were in a formation as if they were surrounding them. Therefore, Atsushi must use some means to create a gap and escape.
It was supposed to be…
『”Atsushi-san. Can you leave this to me? I have something I want to try.”』
“Want to try?… You, no way…”
‘I have something to try’
That word in this situation. Atsushi tried to stop it in an instant, but it was too late.
“… I’ll ask you only once. Can you just leave us alone, without doing anything?”
“No can’t do.”
“I see… then it can’t be helped. I didn’t think I would use the evolved ultimate weapon in such a place… No, I guess it’s good. Everything needs practice after all.”
The men who couldn’t understand Yuri’s words leaned their heads and looked confused.
And Yuri said.
“Alright, Yuri Shirasawa――― singing”
The next moment.
Something horrifying, blasphemous, indescribable, something unbelievable in the world echoed in the men’s brains.
” ” Gyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah” ”
The screams of the muscular men echoed in the city at night.
