Powers of the end

The Last Light We Saw Before The Battle Begins


We all got off the sidewalk to test our powers in the middle of the street.

"What should we do now?" Rika asked with a lazy tone.Bookmark here

"Rika, you will be the first one" I answered "The voice had said 'fire' to you wasn't it? then try to breathe fire."
Bookmark here

"I'm not a dragon you asshole" Rika replied screaming.Bookmark here

"Then try to throw it through your hands." I replied pointing to her hands.Bookmark here

"I hope it doesn't burn my nails." She responded with a worried face.Bookmark here

Rika then raises her arm and keeps swinging it to see what happens.

"Nothing happened" Rika looks happy about the fact.
Bookmark here

"Of course nothing happened you didn't even try." I was pissed. "Try to concentrate and yell 'Fire' it might work."Bookmark here

Rika didn't answer anything just raised her arm and yelled with an angry face:

"FIRE" Bookmark here

At that moment a flame came out of her fist that was big enough to consume a person Rika let out a startled scream right after the flame left.

"It scared me and nearly burned my nails." she said that looking at her own nails.
Bookmark here

"Let's ignore the fact that your nails are more important than anything else and move on to the next one." So I pointed to keita.Bookmark here

"Alright I will try." Keita looks confident.

Keita approaches a rock and prepares to punch it.

"Please don't break my hand."Bookmark here

"Keita I think you don't need to say anything, your power is similar to Hideki's, just try to think that your punch will be strong." I advised him.
Bookmark here

Keita nodded and went back to concentrating on his punch and then he with a yell punched the stone causing it to shatter into pieces. Everyone applauds Keita as if it were a karate performance.

Keita and I did a High Five after that Hana was about to test her power.
Bookmark here

"LIGHTNING." Hana yelledBookmark here

After she screams a lightning bolt comes out of her hands making even her hair stand up as if they were alive frying a pole that was close to her making the pole fall slowly to the ground she moves out of the way so the pole doesn't fall on her she looked at us and said with a small smile on his face:

"I think this will be good against the skinny creatures."Bookmark here

At that moment I remembered Saya was with us she is so quiet that I almost don't notice her.
Bookmark here

"Saya you said the voice said 'speed' right?" I asked looking directly at her face.Bookmark here

"Yes." She replied with her face down and completely red.Bookmark here

"Maybe you have super speed I just don't see much use for it." I gave my opinion.Bookmark here

"Sorry for being useless." She said this with tears in her eyes.Bookmark here

"I didn't mean you're useless, we just need to confirm what your power is and try to think you're super fast." I tried to console her and shift her focus.
Bookmark here

She nodded and started making a face like she was struggling a few seconds passed and I was already thinking she wasn't going to make it until a strong wind hit my face and Saya was no longer in front of me I confused looked around and saw Saya a few meters away from all of us.

We all asked her to come back and she was back in the blink of an eye.
Bookmark here

"Satisfied, let's go to your house." Hana spoke with a commanding tone.Bookmark here

Everyone agreed and we started walking the streets again we could see the crater that had taken up across the street.
Bookmark here

When we were getting close to my street we could see that the houses that hadn't been taken away by the explosion were just cracked and had broken windows.
Bookmark here

When we arrived at my house she was still standing with only a few windows broken.
Bookmark here

"Glad your house is still whole." Hideki tried to comfort me.Bookmark here

"There seems to be some cracks there." Hana complained.
Bookmark here

"That was already there." I replied with a small forced smile.Bookmark here

I went straight to my door and unlocked it as soon as I opened it I said:
Bookmark here

"There is no one at home, you can be at ease."
Bookmark here

It's not like I live with anyone else.
