Bike Hero Volume 1
Now about the Jade Belt.
How would it function just by using it?
No, how could I use it?
The belt felt a little heavy when wearing it.
First of all, I put my burgundy turtleneck on while I threw the torn white T-shirt away.
I was used to wearing without T-shirts anyway.
Strangely, the burgundy turtleneck fitted perfectly with the Jade Belt, much like how Cinderella could perfectly fit in the glass slipper.
I thought that it wouldn't fit because of the belt's size.
Maybe I could be wrong.
Also, it was shaped like a brick.
My main concern was that I couldn't take the belt off.
Seriously, I couldn't!
The belt was tightened to where I couldn't take it off.
The belt was filled with different buttons and mechanics.
I didn't know where to start pressing them.
Perhaps, I didn't want to make a mistake.
However, I saw a white button and pressed it.
I was just curious!
A black glass in the middle of the belt opened, revealing a fan.
Then, a green light on the belt started blinking, meaning that it was functioning, but nothing happened.
But still, why was there a fan on the belt?
Did it have a unique mechanism to it?
I had to find out for myself.
Ah, I see.
I just had to run to make the fan pick up wind pressure, and it would eventually work.
I mean, it was pretty obvious.
And for that, I ran as fast as I could, causing the fan within the belt to spin at a much faster pace.
I felt my body tingling, feeling numb afterward.
Out of nowhere, my body was then covered in bright white light.
I was transforming into something extraordinary!
Once I had transformed, my body suddenly felt a little heavy.
I took a moment to inspect my body, expressing how awesome it was.
As silly as it might sound, I was wearing cybernetic burgundy armor with a samurai motif sprinkled in.
Did I transform into a cyborg or a robot?
From my point of view, I could see my vital statistics, HUD, and more.
It was like something out of a video game.
However, I was still wearing the Jade Belt that I had received before.
And unlike myself, I hadn't felt as energetic as I was before!
But hang on.
Could I be dreaming, or was it all a reality?
It was the latter.
It was awesome!
To test my new body out, I wanted to find something to determine how strong I was.
I looked around.
There, I found a soccer ball lying in front of me.
I didn't know who had it in the first place, but I couldn't wait to test my strength in this new body.
I picked the soccer ball up, holding it firmly.
Once I dropped it, I kicked it as hard as I could.
And by looking up, I saw it flying to the sky at the speed of sound.
So my new body was of incredible strength.
So it was the latter indeed!
Were there some other things that I could do?
I noticed on the HUD that there was a mode where I could fire laser beams with my hands.
And with it, I entered that mode.
Without hesitation, I looked around for something empty, avoiding buildings with people in them.
Fortunately, I found an abandoned building, a house that was.
I stood facing in that direction.
I spread my fingers, opening up my right palm.
I felt my right hand heating up, charging up to form a powerful laser beam.
Then I fired away.
I felt vibrations spreading throughout my cybernetic body, but nothing strange happened to me.
The abandoned house collapsed upon being destroyed, becoming amazed after it happened.
It seemed that my testing here was done.
But I had fun!
It was as if I could do many things with this new body!
But I had decided to call it a day for now.
By pressing the black button, I switched back to my standard form once I had used the Jade Belt.
And ever since that moment, I had realized that using my power to the fullest could get in the way of life, and I couldn't go on to live in this condition.
Because of it, I didn't return to high school, assuming that the principal and others saw it as me dropping out.
Honestly, I did, but it was a risky resolution.
My paternal grandfather was probably furious at me right now.
But again, I couldn't care less.
Me striving for education wasn't worth it.
And since that time, I had decided to become a superhero.
Because I wanted to seek vengeance on the Doctor and the Echo Brotherhood for experimenting on me without my permission and to make head and tail of the truth behind my capture.
And to hopefully save innocent lives for the ones falling in the same path as I was.
To make a living of my own, I took on selling scrap metals for profits.
And I have kept working in that position ever since.
In any event, my horrible past had yet to be left behind and to soldier on to a merry future.
And that past would be forever gone.
Five years had passed, and something shocking had occurred.
Under the sunset, I encountered the sibylline girl at the junkyard.
The one I recognized at that lab experiment five years prior.
And my destiny began to take hold of me, for the unforeseen.
