It was time for the Inter-Class Tournament, everyone gathered on the announcement board to see the fighting schedule for the Inter-Class Tournament.
Haru looked at the board and saw that his opponent was Rin who was the class representative of Class Two.
"My... your opponent is Rin-san!" Cecilia was a bit surprised.
"You should be careful." Houki looked at Haru.
Haru nodded and looked at Rin who was also standing beside him. "Let's have a good fight later, err... can I call you, Rin?"
Rin nodded and said, "Yeah, I don't mind, but I'm the one who is going to win!" She folded her arms and showed her confidence.
"My... what a loudmouth, you don't know how strong Haru is!" Cecilia thought that she needed to teach this little girl a lesson. She remembered when she fought Haru, and thought that he might be the strongest IS pilot in this world.
"Hmph! But I won't lose no matter what!" Rin pointed her finger at Haru and said, "I'll see you at the tournament!" She walked away to get ready for the battle.
"Haru, you should be prepared too!" Houki reminded him.
Haru nodded and said, "I'll go to the toilet first."
"Hurry up and go!"
Haru went out leaving them behind.
Cecilia looked at Houki and asked, "Houki-san, is it only me, but you are somehow more cheerful than before, what happened yesterday?" She asked this question quietly so it wouldn't be heard by Ichika.
"Hmm? Nothing, we're just playing around town then going back," Houki said calmly.
Cecilia looked at Houki for a while, but she could see that Houki wasn't lying, but at the same time, she felt that the relationship between the two of them became closer.
'Is it only my imagination?'
"Let's go with him later. We can help him in to prepare later," Ichika said and didn't know what they were talking about.
Cecilia and Houki nodded at the same time.
Haru was in the toilet.
The location of the toilet for a male was quite far since the number of male students in this place was only two people.
Haru was washing his hands, but suddenly his commutation device vibrated.
"Hi! Hi! Hi! This is everyone's idol, Shinonono Tabane!"
Haru ignored Tabane's remark and dried his hands.
"Mooo, don't ignore me!"
"What's wrong?" Haru asked.
"You asked my sister for a date yesterday! Of course, as a big sister, I need to tell you that you shouldn't play with Houki-chan's heart or else her big sister will get angry! Hmph! Hmph!"
"I'm not playing with her. You also know that she likes Ichika, right?" Haru answered calmly.
"Boy! How can you give up that easily! You've almost gotten Houki-chan's heart! You can't give up!"
Haru was speechless and said, "Shinonono-san, I don't have a hobby to steal a friend's girl."
"Hmph! It's his fault for not noticing Houki-chan's feelings! He's so f.u.c.k.i.n.g dense! If you can make her happy then I don't mind being your sister-in-law."
"But you can hack the entire camera in town, right? Why don't you do that?" Tabane asked.
"Well, you're her big sister, and of course, you have a right to observe us so that you'll know that I don't do anything weird to your little sister."
"Yeah, but I've to admit that you're a genius!"
"Yeah, the date spot which you've chosen before is very perfect to show the wonderfulness of Houki's b.r.e.a.s.ts!"
Haru was wondering how there was a big difference between the two sisters.
"But I've to admit the last spot is very nice.... visiting the beach at night, spending time together while holding hands... Kyuuuu!! My heart almost exploded! How cute! Sigh... I wonder why I didn't have such youth before...."
Haru was somehow quite embarrassed and sighed.
"Are you done? I want to get out of the bathroom now."
"You don't need to be shy, Haru."
Haru thought for a while and asked, "Can I meet you?"
"What? Are you eager to get permission to chase after Houki-chan? If you want then I can give you permission."
"As I said before, I don't have a hobby to steal someone else's lover from my friend."
"But... don't you think that he's so dense? He has a lot of girls in the academy, you don't need to worry and just chase after Houki-chan!"
"Why do you want me to chase after her?" Haru asked.
"Why not? I can see that both of you are matched with each other. It seems very nice to see both of you on a date, especially when you can also see Houki-chan's b.r.e.a.s.ts."
"You too, right?"
"Well, both of us are perverts."
Both of them laughed.
"Then, I'll go out now."
"I'll see you soon, though, Haru."
"Oh? You're going to give Houki an IS?"
"I've planned that and it'll be more powerful than your Deathscythe!"
"Hoo? I'm waiting for that."
Haru ended the conversation and went out as if nothing had happened, but he thought that Shinonono Tabane was a very interesting person.
All students on the IS Academy had sat down in the audience seat to watch the Inter-Class Tournament which was about to happen.
Not only a student, but there were also a lot of high ranking people from various countries and organizations that also watched the match since they also wanted to recruit talented pilots to their country or organization to become their representative pilot.
However, the reason why they came to this Inter-Class Tournament was because there were also a lot of students who attracted them such as the IS representative of England, China, and Japan. There was also a little sister of Shinono Tabane who had gone missing.
Lastly, there were two male IS pilots in this world. They didn't know much about Ichika since in their opinion, that guy was very normal, but Haru was different. They might have heard that it was a rumor, but Haru was the one who had built his own IS.
Even though on the record the one who had created it was Hikaruno Kagaribi, but the people inside knew the one both Haru and Hikaruno developed the IS together.
Haru's IS name was quite ominous, but when they saw the picture of his fight with the IS Representative of England. They felt that name was very suitable since his IS really gave an image of "Devil" or "God of Death", especially when he could win very slay Cecilia's IS.
Rin was floating in the air while waiting for Haru to enter the arena. She had seen Haru's IS before, but she had never seen him take out his weapon since, during the training session, he only used a Vulcan cannon or machine gun, however, she knew that Haru's IS was a close-combat type IS. She had only got the information that Haru's weapon was a scythe, but felt that her chance to win this duel was quite big since he didn't have any information about her IS.
It was at this moment that Haru came out from the pit with his body fully covered in his IS armor.
Looking at Haru's figure, Rin could feel an intimidating feeling from Haru.
Then everyone saw him take out a large metallic stick from inside his IS and that stick suddenly released two sharp crescent blades on the edge of the stick transforming it into a twin-beam scythe.
"Don't lose too easily, Rin."
Haru showed his face and smiled.
"Hmph! You're the one who is going to lose!"
Rin took out two blades and held them in both of her hands.
Both of them were a close-combat type of IS.
It was a battle of twin scythe against two blades.
Everyone was waiting for the match with anticipation until there was an announcement that the battle started.
Both of them charged at each other and started to clash their weapons.
