     Thoughts
     It was all a blur.
     The moment Kinus laid down on the stretcher and closed his eyes, he passed out. From then on, he drifted in and out of consciousness, getting hazy visions and scenes as his body desperately tried to force him to rest after such a harrowing event. At one point he was being carried to the clinic, then after that, he was being treated for his wounds. Recovery Girl was there, possibly giving him a piece of her mind. The dragon couldn’t remember honestly. The hero’s lips were moving but no sound was coming out of her mouth. Kinus lost consciousness once again the moment Recovery Girl used her Quirk on him. He fell into a deep slumber, losing track of time entirely as his body shut down.
     The dragon’s mind, however, was wide awake.

     “We’re in the Fire Zone,” Kinus answered, turning to face Ojiro. “We need to regroup with the others.”
     The boy nodded, regaining his composure. “Got it. We need to get a move on. There might still be villains lurking around.”
     The prospect of fighting proper villains left Kinus feeling a bit shaken. This did not go unnoticed by Ojiro. “You okay?” the boy asked.
     Kinus blinked, doing his best to steady himself. “I’m okay. Just...still trying to let this all sink in.” The dragon tried to smile but ended up grimacing instead. “It’s just...villains, Ojiro. We’re really up against villains.” The dragon’s voice shook slightly. “People that are act

     The sun was up high in the sky as the students of Class 1A gathered in the courtyard. Even though they were told that they were allowed to choose whether or not they wanted to wear their hero costumes, it came as no surprise to anyone that everyone in the class decided to still wear them. Although it was just a basic run of the mill training exercise, the aspiring heroes weren’t going to pass up a chance like this. It was another chance for them to train while wearing it, another opportunity to get used to it while out in the field. For a person like Kinus, it was a chance for him to test out the upgrade he had been asking for.
     “You seem different,” Ojiro commented as he walked up to the blue dragon. “Did you add something new to your costume?” It was a head gear of so

     “Ah, I understand Mr. Hazani, we’ll make sure to have this addressed in the next prototype of your suit. Would that be all?”
     The dragon scratched his chin. On his desk in front of him were the various documentations that were given to him in regards to his hero costume. He grabbed one of the papers and sighed thoughtfully. “Nah, I think that’s about it. I hope that’s not too much of a trouble.”
     The support company representative chuckled on the other line. “Far from it, sir. We were actually thinking of already implementing something like it and presenting it to you as a possible upgrade. I believe you’ll like what we’ve had designed in the lab.”

     Explosive, exciting and exhilarating.
     Those were the best three words Kinus could think of to describe the match between Midoriya’s team and Bakugo’s team. It was like watching a blockbuster action movie, complete with thrills, twists and enough rise and falls that it could rival a rollercoaster ride. The dragon inevitably found himself excitedly fidgeting as All Might stood in front of the two draw boxes.
     “All right everyone! Let’s change locations and start the second match. Tackle this training after thinking about what we just talked about.”
     Kinus nodded. Yaoyorozu was kind enough to give them a quick rundown of what happened between the prior match and what they should have and should not have done. The main takeaway Kinus lear

     The rest of the day seemingly blurred itself together for Kinus. The exhaustion of dealing with the Quirk assessment test left him feeling sleepy and struggling to stay awake as the hours went by. Granted, he wasn’t the only one who felt that way. Almost half of the entire class looked like they were about to fall asleep as the hours droned on and on. Thankfully enough, they didn’t officially have classes, just introductions and orientations with their different teachers telling them what they were going to do in the many subjects they were going to have.
     Eventually, classes did end, and the dragon breathe a pleasant sigh of relief as he gathered his things and began to head out. Kinus found himself walking out of the large entrance doors of U.A., home being his primary destination. The comfor

     The Quirk Assessment Test

     Kinus mentally prepared himself for the ordeal they were going to go through. His heart raced in his chest as he did some stretches under the shade of a nearby tree. Aizawa had allowed them a five minute break to think things over and give them a chance to prepare for the eight exercises they were going to do. Eight tests that would determine if they had the right to stay or leave. This was the last thing Kinus expected when he woke up this morning. He expected class orientation, student introductions, getting to know the school and one another, that sort of thing. But no. He had this as his primary introduction to U.A.
     The dragon smiled as he stretched his arms.

     The followings weeks were like a flurry of activity filled with excitement for Kinus. The high he was on from receiving the news that he got accepted into U.A. seemingly made time dilate. Everything just blurred together for him. One day, he was at his desk, pen gliding over the papers he had to fill in and submit, in accordance to finalizing his enrollment. The next, he was outside, doing some errands that involved him having to go to Kiyashi Ward to get himself some school supplies and other necessary incidentals. He had to pick out a school bag to fit all the books he’d be carrying. He released a sigh of relief upon realizing that the shopping mall had shoes in his size.

AoH Ch02 Present Matters

Author's Notes:
SO YEAH..I kind of took my sweet ass time in posting the 2nd chapter of my story...and here I said that I would be updating regularly. My bad~ But hey! I'm posting the 2nd chapter, and that's what matters right? Haha. Anyways, yeah, as you have noticed so far, I am following the plot of the show. Why? Well, my story is a retelling of sorts. I'm following the plot of the show except this time with the addition of my OC. Will things change? Depends! Who knows? This is fanfiction after all! Best believe that at some point it will deviate as I try to give it my own signature style.
Rest assured, I will do my best to make Kinus Hazani feel like a realistic character that can stand among the already compelling characters featured on the show. I am striving to keep everyone in character to best of my abilities as well.
I just hope you guys enjoy this as much as I did writing it.

Heavy Start

      A place for aspiring heroes who dreamed of greatness, of doing good and showing the world what they can do and how to make it a better place for all. Teens from around the country flocked here in hopes of getting in, as UA’s track record showed that it was almost a requirement to be an alumni here to be considered one of the best. After all, the hero of the people, All Might, graduated here. He was the symbol of justice, and many young men and women aspired to be THE hero, just like him.

Inside, a lone young man braved the mountain as the road went up another steep incline, going up higher and higher. To his left was the breathtaking view of Ebbot City. Towering skyscrapers littered the downtown district whilst quiet suburban homes were found at the residential side of town. It was a picture straight out of a postcard. The chatter of the radio was what kept the silence at bay.

“Are you still fighting with mom?”
The words echoed inside Asgore’s head as he quietly sat by himself at the living room. He stared at the dim reflection of himself on the turned off television. He saw a boss monster, looking confused and utterly distraught at how things were going. Sure, the Human Monster Peace Alliance was going well, albeit with a few hiccups but that was honestly the least of his problems. Where Asgore was building bridges to help things further along for the sake of his people, here he was, desperately trying to maintain one from falling apart.

The large monster opened a drawer and took out a wad of cash. He searched through it and took the necessary amount. "Alright, that would be all."

Hey guys! :iconrovas117: here!

How are you guys all doing?

Journal Entry #452

~~~~~  Next Subject ~~~~~

So.

Our data mining subject just finished a few days ago. We had the final exam last Saturday. I swear, it feels like it was the hardest thing ever. I can’t believe I managed to survive that. Our next subject is Enterprise Data Management, and while this one feels like it’s a walk in the park, Data Mining isn’t just about to let us go without a fight.

Our project for the subject is still clinging to our throats and we just barely survived the most recent deadline we encountered. I can’t believe this research paper is hounding us this badly. >_< I just hope we can managed to survive through this one. Hell, this is giving me extreme case of PTSD, as I worry how I’ll handle myself if it comes to the point where I have to make the thesis all by myself.

~~~~~ BuddyFight ~~~~~

Seriously. A buddy rare card or a golden axe? You’re going to ask the kid that? I swear, it’s moments like these that make me remember that I am, in fact, watching a kids show. Haha. It’s been a long time since we last had something like this. I don’t think the one with Batzz even had something of this caliber.

~~~~~ My Hero Academia ~~~~~

EPISODE 52

Them ultimate moves though! Seeing everyone working so hard to get their super moves is freaking awesome! Naturally, Bakugo is getting miles ahead than everyone else, and I’m so pumped to see what this arc will bring us. I’m very happy that Tokoyami is finally getting a stat boost with the Abyssal Black Body technique. It suits him very much. The next thing I know, he’s going to start rocking out to DEVIL TRIGGER. Haha.

That’s legit the first thing that came into my mind when I saw him do that.

PULL MY DEVIL TRIGGER!!!!

I’m also happy to see Power Loader again. Seeing more of the school is quite nice, and the callback to Hatsume Mei from Season 2 is always fun to see. The boobs scene was even more amusing with Uraraka freaking out. This girl can’t seem to get her hands off Midoriya. I can see why the shippers have this. Haha.

With Full Cowling Shoot Mode being a thing now, I really hope we get a shot of Midoriya kicking a ball at one point and just going to town with it, ala Detective Conan style. XD That would be a signature moment for me.

~~~~~ Creative Corner ~~~~~

Writing, has admittedly, taken a bit of a back seat for now. Even Age of Heroes has taken a bit of a break for me as I find myself unable to write under the stress that I’ve been dealing with. Granted, I’m not going on hiatus or something. No, I don’t think I can ever do that sort of thing. But I am taking my time and don’t want to rush things. I did that before and my works never really came out well. So now, I’m trying my best to just survive through class and post stories whenever I can.

     Chat with a Friend

     
     The sun was shining down brightly at Musutafu City Park.

     Located in the center of the city, it was a sight of green amidst the towering urban jungle that lined it. Tall trees, wide open grassy areas perfect for picnics, wooden ornate benches, and a few fountains scattered around the area really gave the place a sense of tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle of the living city. Kinus sat on one of the wooden benches, watching people walk by. There were a few couples walking around, holding hands with one another. There were families playing around in the playpen nearby. It was comforting to know that although the world had drastically changed ever since Quirks became the norm, there were still some things that stayed the same.

     “Hey.”

     Kinus turned his head to find none other than Tokoyami walking up to him. The black bird was wearing a casual black buttoned shirt with a partner blue jeans to go along with it. Kinus scooted over to give the boy a place to sit next to him on the bench underneath the shade of the tree.

     “Thanks for coming out to see me.”

     Tokoyami shrugged as he sat down. His Quirk, Dark Shadow, popped out and rested on the bird’s shoulder. “It’s fine, dragon boy,” the shadow said. “This guy right here’s been needing some sun anyways.”

     The bird just rolled his eyes. “So, what’s up?” he asked. “What did you want to talk about? I admit, I’m genuinely curious.” He rested his hand on the bench and glanced curiously at Kinus. “When you told me you couldn’t tell me in chat I was intrigued.”

     “I didn’t think you were the mysterious type, dragon boy,” Dark Shadow added.

     Kinus laughed. “Trust me, I’m trying not to be.” The dragon bit his lip, doubt slowly beginning to sprout up in his head. His resolve was firm earlier. He had decided that he wanted to talk to someone about the things he’d been going through, but now he was wondering if it was really the right call.

     Dark Shadow’s eyes narrowed. “Spit it out, already. You look like you’re constipated or something.” Tokoyami shushed Dark Shadow, but there was a tell tale sign of a smile tugging at the corner of his lips.

     After a few tense moments, Kinus released a deep sigh. It was now or never. “I don’t know how to properly say this, so I’m just going to say it.” He looked Tokoyami in the eye. “I killed someone.”

     Kinus watched for...anything really. Body language, facial expression, anything that would give him an inkling as to what the bird was thinking. The boy’s brow crinkled and Tokoyami looked at him seriously. “If this is a joke, Hazani…”

     The dragon shook his head, answering Tokoyami’s statement before he could finish it. “I’m not joking. It happened at USJ.”

     Tokoyami straightened up. Even Dark Shadow who was idly paying attention visibly leaned in, listening intently. “What exactly happened?” The bird then remembered the state Kinus was in when he was escorted out. “Is this why you were so battered and bruised?”

     Kinus nodded. He then proceeded to tell Tokoyami everything. He gave him an account of what happened while they were at the Fire Zone. How he and Ojiro fought and were trying to get to the exit when Blur appeared and blew them away. He gave him a brief rundown of his fight with Blur and how at the very end, it was a life or death situation.

     He told him that killing Blur was an accident.

     “...and that’s that,” Kinus said, wrapping up his story. There was a bit of a short silence between him and Tokoyami. The bird had listened intently to his story, only serving to ask a question every now and then for clarification. Even Dark Shadow was quiet, but was clearly listening as well. Kinus could see that the both of them were quietly thinking things over.

     It was Tokoyami that first broke the silence. “Why are you telling me all of this?”

     The dragon took a deep breath. “I don’t know. I couldn’t tell my mom. She’s a police officer and...I...she might put me in jail and I don’t want that! I’m too young to go to jail!” he blurted out. “I guess...I wanted someone talk to.” He glanced at Tokoyami who was looking at him. “You…” Kinus shrugged, trying to find the right words. Even he himself wasn’t sure why he chose Tokoyami. “...I feel like I could trust you.” The statement hung in the air for a few moments before the dragon ended up laughing at his own sappy statement. “I’m sorry, it’s just…”

     “It’s fine, Hazani.”

     Kinus looked at the bird. “You do believe me, right?” Kinus asked him. “Even how absurd this all sounds.”

     “I admit, it sounds like it has the makings of a revenge manga story, but yes, I do.” The bird crossed his arms on his chest, and crossed his legs as he made himself more comfortable on the bench. “My question now is, what are you going to do?”

     “Live?” Kinus shrugged. “Keep on living? That’s a start I suppose. Try to find out who this guy is, what he wants, and get the police on him.”

     “Speaking of living,” Dark Shadow said, speaking for the first time after being quiet for so long. “I’m amazed you managed to take down a contract killer all by yourself, dragon boy. Consider me impressed.”

     Kinus smiled sheepishly. “I’d rather not do it again. Do you see this scar?” he asked, pointing to his face. “I can’t see out of my right side as clearly as before.”

     “Don’t worry,” Dark Shadow said, waving a hand at him. “It makes you look badass.”

     Tokoyami gave the shadow a disapproving look. “That is very insensitive, Dark Shadow.”

     The shadow pouted. “I’m being honest.”

     “Still,” Tokoyami said, looking at Kinus, “you shouldn’t worry so much, Hazani. While I’m not well versed with the inner workings of law, I’m sure you won’t get in as much trouble. You did it out of self defense after all.” He then hesitated for a bit before reaching out to place a comforting hand on the dragon’s shoulder. “You need to tell your mother. This is a serious matter. Your life is in danger.”

     The dragon looked at Tokoyami’s serious expression before nodding in affirmation. “Yeah...you’re right. I guess I just...overreacted?”

     “I would have been more surprised if you didn’t. You’re under a lot of stress.” The bird retreated his hand back. “I’m sure things will work itself out.” Tokoyami smiled. “Fate moves in mysterious ways.”

     Kinus nodded, and for the first time, finally felt like he could breathe again. The haze of doubt, fear, and frustration seemingly lifted its weight off his chest and he could take in fresh air again. “Seriously, Tokoyami, thanks for coming out to see me today.”

     The bird waved a dismissive hand at him. “You do not have to thank me, Hazani. Isn’t this what friends are meant to do?”

     Kinus smiled.

     “Oh my goodness.” Kinus and Tokoyami turned both their heads to see Dark Shadow rolling his yellow eyes. “You two sound so sappy right now. It’s making me feel weird.”

     “It’s called friendship, Dark Shadow,” Kinus remarked, “you should try it some time.”

     “I feel insulted, dragon boy! I thought we were friends already,” Dark Shadow joked back, pretending to look hurt.

     “Alright, knock it off you two,” Tokoyami said.

     The sound of a growl made the trio stop in their conversation. Kinus smiled sheepishly. “Sorry, I wasn’t able to eat much back at breakfast.” Then an idea popped into his head. “Since we’re here anyway, why don’t we grab something to eat?”

     “That I can agree on,” Dark Shadow answered.

     “I think I saw a good place down the street,” Kinus said leading the way. As the two began to walk, he turned to Tokoyami. “So…you read manga?”

     Dark Shadow grinned. “Oh, dragon boy, do I have something to tell you!”

     Kinus swore he had never seen Tokoyami looked more distressed than at that moment.

     “So you’re a fan of Academy of Heroes?” Kinus asked. The two of them were seated inside one of the fast food establishments in the area. Tokoyami was nodding his head, his feathers looking visibly ruffled in response to having to admit one of his interests to the boy. “I didn’t know!”

     The bird shrugged. “It’s…a thing. I read it every now and then.”

     “I love that show. It’s one of my favorite animes!” Kinus’s eyes were shining. “I’m actually keeping up with the manga too.”

     Tokoyami visibly perked up. “You do?”

     The dragon began to unpack the burger meal he bought for himself. “I do. I actually have it in a bookshelf at home,” Kinus replied.

     Tokoyami was silent for a bit, visibly contemplating something deep in his mind. He was unwrapping the packaging of his burger, but it was clear his mind was elsewhere. Dark Shadow formed on his shoulder and Kinus saw the shadow roll his eyes. “You know, you’re not going to know if you don’t ask, right?”

     The bird stiffened and glared at Dark Shadow.

     “Ask what?” Kinus asked eyeing the two of them.

     After a moment of hesitation, the bird then answered, “Do you have that special issue they released last summer?”

     “Special issue last summer…?” Kinus sipped on his soft drink as he thought for a moment. “You mean the special run they released where it was like a special non-canon story where it was set in an alternate fantasy world?”

     Tokoyami’s eyes lit up. “Yeah, that one. Do you have that by any chance?”

     The dragon grinned. “I do! That was one of my favorite special issue runs! Goodness, I wish they’d make an OVA series about it. Though I think they are...” His attention was then taken when he saw the bird across from him sit straight in his chair.

     Kinus swore he saw a fire lit behind Tokoyami’s eyes. “Hazani.”

     “Y-yes?”

     “May I borrow it?”

     Kinus worried what Tokoyami would do if he would say otherwise. “Yeah, sure thing.” He chuckled, surprised to see this facet of the bird. “I didn’t take you to be a manga fan, Tokoyami.”

     “I’m a fan of a lot of things,” he answered cooly. “I just don’t often share my interests with people.”

     The dragon took a bite of his burger. “Why’s that?” When the bird didn’t answer him, he opted to throw out a guess. “You think people would find it weird that you’re still into manga at your age?” he asked rhetorically.

     “I suppose you have a point,” Tokoyami replied. He took a french fry and tossed it into his mouth. “I just…” he began, trying to find the right words. “I guess I’m just not used to telling people much about myself, or at the very least, sharing stuff I’m interested in.”

     “Well I think it’s cool,” Kinus said. “I’ll be sure to bring the manga to school tomorrow so you can read it.”

     Tokoyami smiled. “Thanks, Hazani.”

     The conversation lulled for a moment, and only picked up again when Dark Shadow appeared. He asked for a french fry and Tokoyami kindly handed him one, to which the shadow ate happily. A few of the shop patrons gave Dark Shadow curious glances, but kept to themselves. Kinus could understand their curiosity.

     The dragon cocked his head to the side. “So, I’ve been meaning to ask,” he began, watching Dark Shadow finish a french fry. “I wanted to ask about Dark Shadow.”

     Tokoyami’s brow rose. “Yeah?”

     Kinus decided to ask one of the many questions he had. “What is he exactly?”

     The bird glanced at Dark Shadow who helped himself to another french fry that was on the tray. “He’s what you see him as.” The dragon blinked in response. At the very least that was a serviceable answer. “He’s my Quirk,” Tokoyami continued, “that’s what he is. I can’t be any more specific than that as I myself wonder every now and then.”

     The dragon nodded. “So…” he continued, “does he need to eat then?” He saw Dark Shadow munch down another french fry into his mouth.

     Tokoyami shook his head. “He doesn’t need to eat. He can, but it’s not necessary for him to live. What he does eat, however, just becomes converted to energy for me.”

     “So you can literally live, never having to eat anything, as long as Dark Shadow eats for you when you’re hungry?”

     The bird nodded. “But I still like the taste of food.” He then proceeded to take a bite of his burger to emphasize his point.

     “Does he sleep then?” Kinus continued.

     “Sleep is all he ever does,” Tokoyami answered flatly, looking at Dark Shadow who was resting on the table.

     “He reminds me of a lazy cat,” the dragon commented.

     “I’ll have you know,” Dark Shadow spoke up, “that I’m far more than those furry felines.” He rolled onto his back and let out a belch. “Have you seen me throw a villian half a street away? I’m sure those kitties can’t do that!”

     “I’m sure they can’t,” Kinus replied, reaching forward. He hesitated for a short bit, glancing briefly at Tokoyami, before reaching out fully to practically pet Dark Shadow’s exposed chest. The feeling was...definitely something else, to say the least. It was like touching a solid yet soft surface that had a texture that reminded the dragon of a feathery bird, yet was silky smooth at the same time. The shadow froze for a short bit, taken by surprise at the sudden contact, but then eventually relaxed and audibly began to purr at Kinus’s petting.

     The dragon smiled. “Is he always this friendly?”

     “Hardly,” Tokoyami answered. “Most of the time he just ignores people.”

     “I’m glad he talks to me then,” Kinus remarked, scratching Dark Shadow’s chest one last time before pulling back. “Though I envy Dark Shadow for being able to sleep. I don’t think I haven’t had a good sleep ever since...you know, USJ.”

     “You’ve been having nightmares?” Tokoyami asked, sounding concerned.

     The dragon nodded. “Pretty much. I’ve had a nightmare of what could have happened if I didn’t win against Blur…” He visibly shivered, shaking his head. His eyes flickered to his friend. “I saw you guys die because you fought him...and then I died right after.”

     “I can empathize with how you feel.” The bird leaned back in his chair and took a sip from his soft drink. “All the more reason you should get this sorted out with your mother.”

     “Yeah, you’re right.”

     The rest of the day continued on normally. Kinus and Tokoyami hung out together with Dark Shadow providing amusing commentary and witty jokes every now and then as the two boys wasted time with one another. It gave Kinus the sense of normalcy he never knew he wanted after having to deal with serious life threatening issues a day prior. But as they made their way down the streets, the news reports that featured itself every now and then on the electronic billboards constantly reminded him of what he still needed to do.

     It was later that evening, during dinner, that Kinus took the chance to tell his mother about the predicament he was in. He told her everything, about what he had done, who he had fought against and he made it a point to break it to her slowly so she wouldn’t get too overloaded by information.

     “How’d it go?” Tokoyami’s message appeared in the chat box.

     Kinus was seated in front of his computer and tried his best to summarize the conversation that had just transpired a few minutes prior. “It was...loud. Very loud. There was crying. I have never seen my mom look so visibly disturbed,” he said, typing the messages as he spoke.

     Tokoyami’s reply came a few moments later. “I half expected as much. What is she doing now?”

     Kinus looked back and could audibly hear his mother talking to someone on the phone. “She’s relaying information to the police department to get some leads. Trying to find out who Blur is and what his game was. She said that if they can figure out who Blur is, and what type of clients he works with, they can probably narrow down who sent him after me,” he typed back in response.

     “Here’s to hoping this nightmare doesn’t get any more worse,” Tokoyami’s reply said.

     “Agreed,” Kinus replied.

     Kinus let out a yawn as he walked down the halls of U.A.

     The sun was shining brightly through the windows, giving the entire place a lively, yellow glow. Kinus was half expecting there to be police, or at the very most, extra security personnel roaming the area as a protective measure in response to the USJ incident but surprisingly, there was none. It was still U.A. as it was the day before the incident. Students and teachers were still roaming around freely, and everyone was acting like nothing happened.

     Kinus smiled to himself. If there was one thing that was for certain it was that the people of U.A. were a resilient bunch.

     The dragon arrived a few moments later at the door of his classroom and already he could hear the conversations the rest of his classmates were having. A few of the conversations stopped however when he opened the door and made his presence known. Kinus froze as he saw a few of his classmates were looking at him, or at least what the dragon thought was behind him. Kinus turned his head and saw no one there, confirming that they were in fact looking at him. “What?” he asked. “Is there something on my face?”

     “What on earth happened to you?” Kaminari blurted out.

     “Can you still see, Hazani?” Ashido curiously asked.

     “Oh…” Kinus rolled his eyes. It was just his face. “Yes, I still can Ashido. It’s a bit blurred on that side, but I’ll live.”

     “So Ojiro wasn’t joking then…” Kirishima muttered, as Kinus passed by him and made his way to his seat.

     The dragon placed his backpack on his chair and turned around. “Okay, what have you been telling them Ojiro?”

     The boy turned in his seat and smiled sheepishly at him. “We got to sharing stories of what we did at USJ and well...I told them what happened with us.” Kinus’s brow rose, prompting Ojiro to continue. “I told them that we got to fighting thugs and then this super fast, and super strong villain appeared.. He knocked me out but you managed to deal with him.”

     That...was a somewhat serviceable summarization of their encounter with Blur.

     “Is it true, Hazani?” Kirshima asked. “Was he really that fast and strong?”

     “Yes,” he answered flatly. “I’m very happy that all I got after that was a scar. I was fighting for my life.”

     Kirishima gave Kinus a thumbs up. “That, is very manly! I wish I was there to fight alongside you. Seems like it would have been an awesome fight.”

     The dragon just smiled wryly. “I suppose it could have been.”

     “Still, did you guys see the news updates last night?” Sero asked. “I think I saw a picture of us at one point in the broadcast.”

     “All the channels made a big deal out it too,” Kaminari added.

     “Can you blame them?” Jiro chimed in. “The hero course that keeps pumping out pro heroes was attacked. It’s only natural for them to be so alarmed.”

     “Who knows what would have happened if the teachers hadn’t come when they did,” Sero said, lounging in his chair.

     Kinus sat down on his seat and propped his hand on his desk, leaning his head onto it “We would have all died,” the dragon commented.  

     Everyone was visibly stunned at the refreshingly honest statement. Tokoyami who was quietly seated next to Kinus had a smile tugging at the corner of his lips. The juxtaposition of everyone’s comments and what happened to Kinus wasn’t lost on him.

     “Hazani, stop that!” Mineta cried out, looking visibly distressed. “I’ve been having nightmares ever since USJ! I don’t want to think more about it.”

     “SHUT UP! BE QUIET, SCUM!” Bakugo’s loud voice immediately shushed Mineta back to his corner.

     “But man, seeing All Might was great! To see him going to town in person is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before!” Sato added, punching the air in an effort to mimic All Might’s power moves.

     “Yes, his strength is worth wondering at,” Tokoyami commented.

     “I wish I could have seen that for myself,” Kinus grumbled, his shoulders lowering. “But instead I had to deal with a personal matter…”

     “You were off fighting you own battle, Hazani,” Tokoyami said, turning to face him. “Besides, with the way you handled yourself, your strength is equally worth wondering.”

     Kinus smiled, feeling a little embarrassed at the sudden sentiment. “I appreciate the compliment.” There was a certain sense of comfort Kinus felt in knowing that someone in the room understood what exactly happened to him. “Though, I have to say that adrenaline does wonders for you.”

     “EVERYONE! Morning homeroom is about to start! Stop talking and take your seats!”

     Everyone stared at Iida who announced his presence with all of the boy’s rule powered attitude and equally form fitting flourish.

     “We’re already in our seats,”  Kirishima commented.

     “Damn it!” Iida muttered frustratedly, sitting down on his chair. “I was late again!” Kouda and Uraraka proceeded to help the boy calm down.

     “Tsuyu,” Ashido spoke out, “who do you think we’ll have as our homeroom teacher?”

     The girl thought for a moment. “Well, Mr. Aizawa is supposed to be in the hospital recovering from his injuries.”

     The sound of the door opening prompted everyone to turn their heads to see who had arrived. Everyone was equally shocked to find a standing, fully mummified Mr. Aizawa greet them with his usual monotone voice. “Good morning.” His entire face was wrapped up in bandages, and his arm was placed in a cast. How on earth was he still able to move around with all those bandages?!

     “Mr. Aizawa, you’re back too soon! Are you alright?” Iida voiced out.

     “My well being doesn’t matter,” he answered, the voice coming out surprisingly clear even though his mouth was blocked by bandages as well. “More importantly, the fight isn’t over yet.”

     Everyone perked up the pro hero’s choice of words. “Did the villains attack again?” Kinus muttered, feeling a shiver down his spine.

     “The U.A. Sports Festival is drawing near.”

     “The school sports festival?” Kirishima voiced out. He was about to explode in excitement when Kaminari stopped him.

     “Is it okay to have a sports festival so soon after the villains snuck inside?” Jiro asked, voicing everyone’s line of thinking.

     “What if they attack us again?” Ojiro added.

     “Apparently, they think of it as U.A. showing solidarity amidst these troubled times and to show the world that our crisis management system is solid as a rock.” Aizawa answered. He then continued, saying, “Obviously, security will also be strengthened in light of recent events. Above all, our sports festival is a huge chance. It’s not something we cancel because a few villains decided to ruin our day. Our sports festival is one of Japan’s biggest events. It’s the olympics of our modern times, literally. It’s what everyone is looking forward to,” Aizawa said, looking at each and everyone in the class.

     He continued,“all the top heroes around the country will be watching for scouting purposes. If any of you are serious in becoming pros, this is your chance to shine. Joining a famous hero agency will get you more experience and popularity. Time is limited. That’s one chance a year, totalling of three chances. If you understand that, then don’t slack off on your preparations.

     A resounding reply came from everyone. “Yes, sir!”

     Everyone began to animatedly talk with another. Talks of what training exercise they were going to do became the topic of conversation. Kinus could see Midoriya taking down notes in his notebook. Ojiro and Shouji were talking with one another about possible training regimes. It seemed that everyone had a plan in preparing for the Sports Fest, all spurred on by Aizawa’s speech. Kinus nodded. His teacher’s words rang true. If he ever intended in having a shot at becoming a pro hero, the Sports Fest was his chance to make a big splash.

     “Alright, that’s everything,” Aizawa remarked. “Homeroom is dismissed.”

     That was when a knock came from the door. It slid opened, revealing a dog person standing at the other side. He was wearing a simple red plaid shirt and jeans. He idly scratched the tip of his nose as he said, “Aizawa, am I interrupting something?”

     “No, Inui,” Aizawa replied. “I just finished homeroom. What is it?”

     Inui ran a hand through his messy blond hair. “I’m here to pick him up.”

     “Oh...that,” he responded. “I see. Go right ahead.”

     By now everyone’s attention was directed towards the appearance of the newcomer. Inui stepped into the room and stood by the door. “Kinus Hazani,” he announced,  “I need you to come with me.”

     A look of surprise crossed Kinus’s face upon hearing his name get called out.

     What was going on?

     Inui then continued, saying, “Principal Nedzu wants to see you.”

     Author’s Notes:

     I admit, there’s a lot of exposition in this chapter mainly because I don’t want to keep repeating the same information most of us are already aware of. That is, what Kinus did back in USJ. However, it does allow for fun ways to imply how the conversation went. We also get to have Kinus and Tokoyami hang out. It’s always nice to get a breather after a heavy event that they went through. I think they earned it. :D

     Before you guys ask, no, Inui is not an OC of mine. His name is Ryo Inui, and he’s one of the staff in U.A. He’s also a pro hero that appeared at USJ. I hope we get more screen time of him as the series goes.

Journal Entry #452

~~~~~  Next Subject ~~~~~

So.

Our data mining subject just finished a few days ago. We had the final exam last Saturday. I swear, it feels like it was the hardest thing ever. I can’t believe I managed to survive that. Our next subject is Enterprise Data Management, and while this one feels like it’s a walk in the park, Data Mining isn’t just about to let us go without a fight.

Our project for the subject is still clinging to our throats and we just barely survived the most recent deadline we encountered. I can’t believe this research paper is hounding us this badly. >_< I just hope we can managed to survive through this one. Hell, this is giving me extreme case of PTSD, as I worry how I’ll handle myself if it comes to the point where I have to make the thesis all by myself.

~~~~~ BuddyFight ~~~~~

Seriously. A buddy rare card or a golden axe? You’re going to ask the kid that? I swear, it’s moments like these that make me remember that I am, in fact, watching a kids show. Haha. It’s been a long time since we last had something like this. I don’t think the one with Batzz even had something of this caliber.

~~~~~ My Hero Academia ~~~~~

EPISODE 52

Them ultimate moves though! Seeing everyone working so hard to get their super moves is freaking awesome! Naturally, Bakugo is getting miles ahead than everyone else, and I’m so pumped to see what this arc will bring us. I’m very happy that Tokoyami is finally getting a stat boost with the Abyssal Black Body technique. It suits him very much. The next thing I know, he’s going to start rocking out to DEVIL TRIGGER. Haha.

That’s legit the first thing that came into my mind when I saw him do that.

PULL MY DEVIL TRIGGER!!!!

I’m also happy to see Power Loader again. Seeing more of the school is quite nice, and the callback to Hatsume Mei from Season 2 is always fun to see. The boobs scene was even more amusing with Uraraka freaking out. This girl can’t seem to get her hands off Midoriya. I can see why the shippers have this. Haha.

With Full Cowling Shoot Mode being a thing now, I really hope we get a shot of Midoriya kicking a ball at one point and just going to town with it, ala Detective Conan style. XD That would be a signature moment for me.

~~~~~ Creative Corner ~~~~~

Writing, has admittedly, taken a bit of a back seat for now. Even Age of Heroes has taken a bit of a break for me as I find myself unable to write under the stress that I’ve been dealing with. Granted, I’m not going on hiatus or something. No, I don’t think I can ever do that sort of thing. But I am taking my time and don’t want to rush things. I did that before and my works never really came out well. So now, I’m trying my best to just survive through class and post stories whenever I can.

Hey guys! :iconrovas117: here!

How are you guys all doing?

Journal Entry #451

~~~~~  Ant-Man and The Wasp ~~~~~

Man, I hate this time of the year. It’s nothing but rain, rain, and rain. It’s like the whether is a visual representation of how I feel. School has been rough and things feel like it’s going on overdrive. We have a Final Exam this coming Saturday and our project deadline is beginning to rear its ugly head. Stress is beginning to be evident on me but I’m doing my best to stride forward despite the hard challenges laid before me.

I gotta keep pushing through after all. Not much to say other than that.

I did watch Ant-Man and The Wasp though!

NOW THAT is a good movie. If you guys haven’t seen it, I highly recommend you guys check it out. After the downer ending that we got from Infinity War, this is a great movie that serves as a palate cleanser. It reminds us that being a superhero doesn’t always have to have great stakes after all. I love how they handled the conflict in this movie, especially with the antagonist this time around. Ghost was awesome. I love the power set she had on her.

I’m not spoiling anything but suffice to say, it’s a great entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

That ending though. Man, oh man, it definitely ties itself neatly into the drama that is dealt with Thanos.

~~~~~ BuddyFight ~~~~~

Okay, this entire schtick of Ranma getting the short end of the stick because he doesn’t have a buddy, has got to go. Like, seriously, the show is so cruel to him, it’s like they’re BEGGING to make him a villain at some point because of this entire character trait. It was an amusing thing in the previous episodes, but at this point, they’re just kicking the guy while he’s already down for the count.

Also, the melodrama in this episode. This is only episode 6, and we already have the “I love buddyfight” speeches. XD

~~~~~ My Hero Academia ~~~~~

So, unfortunately, there is no new episode this week, but there was a teaser for the 2nd half of Season 3!!! Oh my goodness. I’m so excited. I’m not a manga reader, unfortunately, so I have no idea what’s going on, but I love what I’m seeing. From the visuals I get, and the whole setup they seem to have, it seems that we’re getting a BATTLE ROYALE!!

Oh snap!!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!!!

Hahaha. I’m so excited to see them duke it out once more. From the looks of it, it looks like Midoriya is getting another boost with his Full Cowling again, Shoot Mode or something like that. I’m so excited! Everyone’s teaming up with one another to fight another class too. AHHHHHH!!!

The next part can’t come fast enough!

~~~~~ Creative Corner ~~~~~

Man, it’s freaking hard to find the time to write nowadays when you’re busy with school, and trying to keep things in order because of all the stuff you have to deal with. But I am pushing through! I’ve managed to finally comb through majority of the rewrites I’ve been wanting to do and I’m settling in back into the rhythm.

     Age of Heroes

     By Rovas117

     Chapter 9

     Thoughts

     It was all a blur.

     The moment Kinus laid down on the stretcher and closed his eyes, he passed out. From then on, he drifted in and out of consciousness, getting hazy visions and scenes as his body desperately tried to force him to rest after such a harrowing event. At one point he was being carried to the clinic, then after that, he was being treated for his wounds. Recovery Girl was there, possibly giving him a piece of her mind. The dragon couldn’t remember honestly. The hero’s lips were moving but no sound was coming out of her mouth. Kinus lost consciousness once again the moment Recovery Girl used her Quirk on him. He fell into a deep slumber, losing track of time entirely as his body shut down.

     The dragon’s mind, however, was wide awake.

     The boy found himself standing in the streets of the Fire Zone once more. The smell of ash, burning debris and smoke filled his nostrils. The sound of shouting and fighting emanated from the distance. Kinus looked around, and was shocked to find a piece of white cloth standing out amidst the dull pile of debris.

     “Ojiro?”

     He was about to move towards his friend. When a voice cut above the noise.

     “He’s dead you know.”

     Everything went silent and for a moment Kinus thought he had gone deaf. He turned around to face the source of the voice to find none other than Blur standing menacingly in front of him.

     “N-no! That’s not true!” he spat back.

     The villain snapped his fingers and bodies began to appear in front of the man’s form. Kinus reared back and gasped. The lifeless bodies of his friends laid there in front of him. Some were missing some limbs, others were clearly bloodied and bruised. It was a horrifying sight to behold, something straight out of a nightmare. Blur walked to one of the bodies and knelt down.

     “See, Kinus, this is what happens if you don’t fight like you mean it. You don’t have the conviction to see things through.” Blur grabbed one of the bodies and Kinus’s eyes widened. “Poor fellow,” Blur remarked, tapping Tokoyami’s beak. “He tried so desperately to fight me.” He dropped the bird’s body back on the floor, where it landed with an unceremonious thump. “You lack the drive to do what’s necessary. To end things when they should. Because of your hesitation, your friends have died. Your cause is admirable, Kinus, but some people are never going to change, like me.”

     Kinus blinked and Blur disappeared. The dragon frantically looked around and stopped as the blade of a scythe pressed close to his throat.

     “And that’s why…” Blur lowered his head to meet with Kinus’s ears. “You’re going to die too.”

     “NO!”

     Kinus woke up with a start, sitting upright so fast, he felt the room spinning around him. It took a moment for him to recover his entire composure and for his vision to clear. He looked around. Blue walls faintly illuminated by the sunlight spilling in from the window. A computer at the far corner of the room, atop a desk cluttered with paperwork. A large closet hiding in the corner. His breathing began to relax as he recognized where he was.

     He was in his room.

     Kinus sighed and laid back down. He was drenched in sweat, and his heartbeat was still coming down from that high. Admittedly, the dragon wasn’t one for nightmares. Most of the time he slept, he had nothing but dreamless sleep. Maybe a wacky dream or two here and there, but nothing that ever stood out. It was always just staring into that black, inky void. Losing consciousness for one second, then the next thing he knew, morning was here and he was refreshed and ready to start the day. He couldn’t even remember the last time he had a nightmare. He tossed around the bed, still feeling a slight ache in his body. What time was it anyway? Better yet, what day was it?

     The dragon looked towards the desk near his bed and was glad to see his phone placed there. His mother must have left it there for him. Reaching outwards, he grabbed hold of the device and focused his eyes to make sense of the digital display. It told him that it was Saturday, and school was going to start an hour from now.

     The dragon blinked. That can’t be right? He read it again, and sure enough, he was right. School was going to start in an hour. He overslept! The dragon forced himself out of the bed, flinging the blankets off him. His body revolted, his head threatening to spin the room once more. But the dragon pushed through. Kinus was determined to not miss a day of school. Hero training was important after all, and he wasn’t going to let simple muscle ache stop him.

     He stood on shaking legs, and his entire body felt heavy to carry. Doubt began to crop up in the dragon’s mind but he pushed them back as he walked towards the door, rubbing his eyes. He opened it and was greeted with the sound of the TV broadcast in the living room, and the smell of a fresh meal being cooked in the kitchen.

     “M-mom?” he called out. His voice sounded raspy.

     The familiar red scaled dragoness poked her head out of the kitchen’s open door frame. “Kinus?” she called out. “Oh, Kinus! You’re awake!” She immediately finished up what she was doing and made her way to his son who was sheepishly smiling at her. “How are you feeling?” she asked, placing a comforting hand on his shoulder.

     “Do I have to answer that question?” Kinus asked back, offering his mother a warm smile. “I’m okay, mom. Why didn’t you wake me up? I’m going to be late for school.”

     Ruby stroked his son’s cheeks and gave it a loving squeeze. “Ever the go getter, I see. Don’t worry. U.A. cancelled classes for today.”

     The blue dragon blinked. “Why is that?”

     “They wanted to buckle down and double their security efforts after what happened,” she answered plainly. “Go wash your face while I get your breakfast ready. You must be starving.”

     “Thanks, mom.”

     Kinus made his way to the bathroom to go freshen up. He turned on the lights and stared at the dragon staring back in the mirror. His ocean blue eyes practically glowed under the dim light, and his two yellow horns that protruded from the top of his head framed his entire face perfectly. He flicked his ears back and forth to make sure they were still in good working order. But the one thing that stood out the most was what happened to the right side of his face. He gingerly tapped the skin, feeling the deep cut that had now become a scar. The scar reached from the bottom of his face, scratched his eye, and etched all the way to the top in a tilted angle. He covered his left eye and sure enough, his vision blurred slightly. He could still see, but he just had to focus now if he needed to see with only his right side.

     “Damn…” he said to himself. “I look horrible!” A smile formed at the corner of his lips in a show of amusement.

      Kinus cupped the water with his hands and began to rinse his face, the cool water dripping down his skin like scales. He then reached for the towel to rinse off and made his way back to the kitchen. Ruby was applying the finishing touches on the dinner table, and he joined her for a hearty meal of breakfast. Kinus helped himself to a piece of toast as he directed his attention to the news broadcast.

     It was a news report about the attack at USJ, and was showing the aftermath of the incident. The large gaping hole that was at the side of the USJ building was depicted front and center, and Kinus was amazed to find out that it was All Might that had done that. Pros were truly on a different level.

     “...we reached out to Principal Nezu for comment in regards to this brazen attack on the hero academy.”

     Principal Nezu appeared on screen. It was always an amusing thought to think that the person leading the charge on the future of heroes was such a small figure. But despite his size, Nezu stood proud and tall, looking surprisingly cheerful despite the circumstances. “I understand that everyone is concerned for the safety of their children after this incident,” he began, “and I would like to take this moment to tell you that your children are all safe. We are currently working hand in hand with the police to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again. For now, however, we will cancel classes for a day to address the damage that has been caused by this tragedy, and allow us to heighten our security efforts...”

     Kinus sighed, now taking a sip of cool water. He couldn’t imagine the amount of stress Nedzu must have been going through after an ordeal such as this.

     “Kinus?”

     The boy raised his brow. “Yeah, mom?”

     “How’s your eye doing?” she asked, looking at him with concern. “I was told by Recovery Girl that you won’t be going blind but...there might be some lasting damage…”

     It was evident in her tone that she was worried for his son. “I’m okay, mom,” he answered, offering a confident smile. “I can still see your beautiful face.”

     His mother chuckled. “I’m glad your sense of humor is still intact.”

     “Seriously though, it’s a bit blurred,” he continued. He covered his left eye and looked at the TV. The scrolling text on screen was a bit hard to read, and it required him to focus in order to decipher them. “I’ll live though. I still have my other eye after all.”

     Ruby nodded, and the two continued to watch the news report.

     The shot was now changed to the news host that was standing in the studio. “We’ve received some update news about the breakout that occurred a few days ago. The police have evidence to suggest that the League of Villains were responsible for the breakout, and thus explains why there were able to amass such a large quantity of villains in such a short amount of time. As for another update,” Pictures flashed on screen, one of them showed an establishment that had smoke billowing out from its broken windows. A mess of debris, broken foundation and items laid strewn about as firefighters fought to quell the fires inside.“The police are now actively determining if there is a link between the League of Villains and the recent string of bomb explosions that have been rocking the city.”

     “There was a breakout?” Kinus asked, turning to his mother.

     Ruby nodded. “It’s honestly been a mess at the department, Kinus. We’ve been trying to sort this out for a few days now, and it’s only yesterday that it came to bite us in the ass. If only we had known they intended to target U.A., we could have done some preventative measures to counter this.”

     “Don’t feel too bad, mom. You couldn’t have known that was going to happen.”

     “I know…” Ruby lowered her head. She faced him once more, her eyes looking somewhat watery. “I was so worried when the call came in, saying something had happened at U.A. I was…” she choked up, and had to take a moment to regain her composure. “After your father died it’s just been the two of us and...”

     It honestly tore Kinus to see his mother like this. The boy stood up and went over to comfort his now crying mother who was wiping away the tears from her face. “It’s okay, mom. It’s okay. I’m alright.” He grabbed one of the napkins on the table and offered it to her.

     Ruby took it and began to wipe away the tears. “I know, I know...it’s just that, I don’t want to lose you. They hurt you, Kinus!” she said, looking at him. “You’re lucky that you can still see!”

     In an effort to try and lighten the situation, Kinus pouted. “I’d like to believe that I’m still alive because of my skill.”

     His mother chuckled. “Oh you, come over here.” She pulled her son into a hug and Kinus smiled, feeling the warm embrace of his mother. “I know I can’t change your mind in your decision to want to be a hero but...just be careful, alright?”

     “I always am, mom,” he answered. “Besides, I could say the same thing. You’re line of work isn’t exactly the safest one too.”

     Kinus spent the rest of the day being at home. Since there was no school for the day, he took advantage of the situation and did what any teenager of his age would do. He took the time to finish any remaining school work he had left and took the chance to catch up on his studies. But as the dragon buried his face into his notes and books, his mind drifted and thoughts of what happened at USJ began to prop back into the forefront of his consciousness.

     Blur. Who the hell was he? From what Kinus could gather from the sparse dialogue they had with one another, and from how Blur acted, he was a professional hitman. But that brought up the question, who sent him? And better yet, why?

     Those two questions burned a hole in Kinus’s head. Kinus never had enemies. Or at least were never at odds with anyone who would’ve resorted to hiring someone to kill him. That was way too extreme. He saw himself as a nice person, and never made it a point to be in conflict with anyone. The question left the dragon utterly baffled. As he quietly mulled this over, another question popped up into the dragon’s head. What now? Clearly he survived the planned hit on him. Would they send someone else again?

     The mere thought of it made the dragon laugh to himself inside the silence of his own room. “What am I even thinking?!” he cried out. “This can’t be happening to me…” he muttered. “What am I supposed to do…?” The dragon thought for a moment. “I suppose I can tell mom.”

     But the dragon shot the idea down as quickly as it came. That wasn’t a good idea. His mom would begin to ask questions and he wasn’t exactly keen in revealing to her yet that he killed someone.

     I killed someone, he thought to himself, feeling a shudder pass through him as the words echoed in his head.

     No matter how many times the thought crossed his mind, the weight behind the phrase ‘I killed someone’ would never seem to go away. The dragon felt an empty void forming itself inside of him as his mind vividly replayed the memory of what transpired between him and Blur. In his defense, it was an accident, and even then, Kinus didn’t mean for it to happen. Yet it still did, and Kinus wasn’t sure what to feel. He became a hero because he wanted to save people and save lives. But now he ended up killing someone in the process because he had to defend himself.

     He knew deep down what he did was wrong; killing was never the answer.

     But thinking hard on it, maybe there really wasn’t a choice to begin with. Blur wasn’t exactly going to stop even if he asked nicely and he wasn’t in any position to be able to knock him out.

     The dragon sighed. “Where the hell did it all go wrong…?” he muttered. “Does All Might even have to deal with stuff like this…? Am I going to jail? I’m too young to go jail!”

     A loud thud echoed in the room as the dragon’s forehead collided with his desk, perfectly encapsulating Kinus’s confused state.

     Even as the day became night and Kinus opted to play video games to distract himself, his mind refused to relent. It was even getting to that point where his mother was noticing his apparent withdrawal.

     “Are you okay?” she asked while the two of them were eating dinner together.

     Kinus was swirling his food around with his spoon and was brought back to reality by the sound of his mother’s voice. “Huh? Sorry, what?”

     “Are you okay, Kinus?” his mother repeated. “Is something the matter?”

     The dragon shook his head. “I’m fine,” he answered. “I’ve just been thinking...a lot…”

     “Oh?” his mother cocked her head to the side. “About what?”

     Where on earth was he going to start? About how some random stranger out there somewhere was after his life for whatever reason? About how he killed someone by accident? About how he was confused and didn’t know what to feel?

     “Just some school stuff,” he answered. He needed someone to talk to. His mother, however, wasn’t the person he was looking for right now.

     Ruby looked at him skeptically. His son wasn’t the type to keep secrets from her but she knew well enough that it wasn’t best to force him. Kinus would probably tell her when he felt it was the right time. “I understand. Still, if there’s anything bothering you, you can tell me, alright?”

     “Yeah, mom, thanks.” Kinus stared at his food, wondering if the answer he was looking for was somewhere in the soup he had made.

     “...This isn’t about a girl, is it?”

     “MOM!”

     “A boy then?”

     Kinus blushed furiously. “NO! Of course, not!”

     Ruby shrugged, a knowing smile on her lips. “Okay, just checking. You are nearing that age after all.”

     Kinus buried his face in his palms. “Oh my goodness, mom! Please, no! You’re making this awkward!”

     Fast forward one embarrassing awkward dinner conversation later, Kinus was now back in the comfort of his own room, idly playing a video game on his computer. He ended up pausing his game when the sound of a chat notification came from his speakers. He viewed the application and it turned out it came from the group chat of Class 1A that he was part of.

     His eyes trailed over the conversation that had been ongoing so far. They were talking about homework...some school projects...there was a joke here, a joke there. Mineta trying to ruin the conversation by being weird again...It was par for the course.

     That was when the idea crossed his mind. He couldn’t talk about the stuff that was bothering him to his mother...but maybe he could talk to one of his classmates. The dragon glanced at the contacts list and began to think who would be the best choice. Someone who he was close enough to confide in. Someone that, maybe, would understand how he felt…

     After a few moments of mulling it over, he nodded to himself. He reached for the mouse and clicked the person’s username.

     “Hey, you there?”

Author's Notes:
Internal drama! I’m sure you can imagine the type of stress that Kinus would be undergoing right now. It’s not exactly common for people of his age to be able to say that they actually killed someone already. Granted, it was in self defense, but the point still stands. And that type of shock doesn’t go away easily. Any guesses as to who he’s contacting for some emotional support is highly welcomed.
