Inside Laura's mind was a mess, she was a soldier from birth and that fact wouldn't change no matter what. She was created to be perfect.
If she wasn't perfect she was useless.
If she was useless then she would be thrown away.
Remembering the feeling which she had felt before she met Chifuyu who had trained her before...
Fear started to envelop her mind.
No matter what she did in this battle, she couldn't find a way to find him.
Laura had tried various attacks, but as if a prophet, Haru could read all of her attacks without a problem.
In front of him, she was just like an open book.
'I don't want to lose....
I don't want to lose! I don't want to lose! I don't want to lose!'
Such a thought kept pounding inside her mind and suddenly something happened within her IS.
Screaming in pain, she felt something wanted to eat her alive.
Suddenly the black mass came out from her IS which started to eat her alive forming into the strongest beings on her mind which was Orimura Chifuyu - the woman who had saved her from the abyss.
Everyone screamed in panic when something had happened to Laura.
No one knew what had happened, but the incident which happened on the Inter-High before had caused them some panic trigger.
"All the tournament matches are canceled!
"Level D status recognized.
"We are sending in instructor troops to settle the situation.
"All the guests and students, evacuate immediately."
Cecilia and Rin could only look at them in worry while waiting for them to resolve this incident.
The barrier was erected and closed the location of the audience with a metal barrier.
Ichika, who was inside the locker room, was in shock when he saw Laura had transformed into his big sister.
Ichika wasn't being filled with fear, rather it was anger when he saw the technique of his big sister was being used by someone other than his big sister. He felt that Laura was trying to ridicule his big sister. He ran out of the locker room and decided to get an IS, but he was stopped by a teacher since it was dangerous.
"No! Let me go! I need to fight her!"
But no matter how much, Ichika screamed he wasn't being allowed to use an IS. He was being brought by the guards outside since he had caused trouble to the mission.
"No! Let me go!"
Chifuyu sighed when she heard the report that Ichika had caused trouble. "Sigh.. bring him here. I'll take care of him." She was his big sister and she needed to take care of him, but she was wondering why he caused trouble at this moment which caused her to have a headache.
Everyone had been wary since the attack of the unidentified IS in the past, but at the same time, Laura's state was different from the unidentified IS which had attacked them before.
They didn't know what had happened to Laura, but no matter what they needed to think about everyone's safety first.
Valkyrie Trace System.
Haru knew about that system since he had also found such data during his stay in Germany to steal various data and IS cores from that country. He knew that it was forbidden research since it endangered the IS pilot, but he didn't expect it to be planted on Laura's IS.
Charlotte and Haru stood next to each other while watching Laura who started to transform into a big black figure which resembled Orimura Chifuyu.
"It doesn't move?" Charlotte asked.
"It might move when we move. Let's observe first," Haru said. He thought about a way to save Laura. Even though Laura was quite haughty, her appearance reminded him of Sora so he wanted to help her.
Laura's figure was petite, and her hair was silver which wasn't that much different from Sora.
Though, of course, Sora was several times cuter than Laura in his opinion.
'Is it alright to split her down?'
Haru thought that it might be possible to save Laura as long as he was able to open the Orimura Chifuyu's figure in front of him.
'It's worth a try.'
Haru saw that the group of instructors started to come out from the dock to stop Laura, but he didn't have confidence in them seeing how strong Laura was in that form.
*Boom!* *Boom!* *Boom!*
Laura, who was in the form of Orimura Chifuyu, was very strong and each swing of her sword could cause a large crater on the ground.
"Orimura-sensei, can you hear me?" Haru asked using a commutation device.
"What's wrong, Kasugano?" Chifuyu answered.
"I'll handle this. Can you tell them to move back a bit?" Haru asked.
"Can you handle this?" After a short pause, Chifuyu asked him once again.
"It should be alright."
"Alright, I'll believe in you."
Chifuyu believed in Haru's power, and he also had credibility since he had also defeated an unidentified IS in the past. Frankly, Haru might be one of the strongest IS pilots that she had seen in her life.
Everyone who received an order from Chifuyu started to move back while looking at Haru.
Haru didn't disappoint them since his solution was pretty simple. His energy depleted, but his scythe became stronger. He appeared right in front of Laura and swung down his scythe in a very precise movement.
The figure of Orimura Chifuyu was slashed in half, revealing Laura's figure on the inside.
Haru caught Laura who was unconscious and defeated her in an instant.
Looking at how easy Haru was to defeat Laura, they were wondering why they needed to be that panicked earlier.
After that the tournament was canceled, Haru and Charlotte thought to rest in their room, but Maya came telling them that they could use the large bath inside the academy.
"What about Ichika?" Haru asked.
"Ah..." Maya was a bit troubled and said, "He's grounded because he has caused trouble."
Haru was wondering what Ichika had done to be grounded by the teacher. Anyway, he was more than happy to monopolize the large bath by himself.
Haru put a towel on the top of his head. He was laying n.a.k.e.d inside the warm bath lazily. He somehow missed his girlfriends and wondered when the Silver Gospel would appear since if that thing didn't appear then he couldn't go back.
Haru only knew that Silver Gospel was an IS that was being developed by both US and Israel. He had a feeling that the Silver Gospel might be hacked by someone and attacked the academy once again, but he didn't know when it was.
Haru also thought about who he should invite to the "group chat". He felt that Shinonono Tabane was the most suitable, but she had never seen her once. But his thought was broken when the door of the large bath was opened. He turned and saw Charlotte walking nervously toward him wearing only a towel that covered her body.
"H - Haru, don't look at me that much..."
Charlotte was very shy.
If you don't want me to see them n.a.k.e.d then you shouldn't enter the bathroom!
Haru wanted to shout that, but he decided to keep it inside his mouth. "Why are you here?"
"You don't want me here?"
"I mean... whatever, you should enter quickly since it is a bit cold when you only wear a tower around you."
Charlotte smiled and washed her body quickly before entering the large bath next to him.
Haru glanced at Charlotte quietly and thought that her b.r.e.a.s.ts were quite good.
Charlotte was quite nervous since she only realized that Haru was n.a.k.e.d. She tried not to look, but at the same time she realized that that part of him was huge.
Both of them peeked at each other quietly.
"Do you have something to tell me?"
Haru broke the silence and asked her question.
Charlotte nodded and said, "Umm... it is about the thing which you were telling me the other day..."
"About elope?" Haru asked.
Charlotte blushed and said, "I, it's a part of it, but I want to say that I'm going to stay in the academy."
"That's good. I'm happy that you've decided such a thing."
Haru smiled, looking at his smile Charlotte couldn't help but hold his hand.
"It's because of you, Haru. Because you're here, I've decided to be here and I....."
Charlotte looked at him and felt quite nervous all of sudden. She was wondering whether she would be rejected by him.
"I've told you that you don't need to be in hurry, right?" Haru said.
Charlotte "umm..." nodded at his words. "C - Can I have a request?"
"What's wrong?" Haru asked.
"Can I sit on your lap?" Charlotte asked with a blush.
Haru hadn't finished his words; Charlotte sat down on his lap and leaned her back at his chest.
Charlotte thought that it was more comfortable than she had thought.
"But if you really keep doing this, I might really not able to hold back, Char...."
Charlotte's waist was being wrapped by his hands tenderly. She turned to look at him directly and said, "I - If that's what you want then I'm very happy..."
Pulling her closer, Haru kissed her lips.
Charlotte closed her eyes and hugged him tightly feeling loved by him.
Inserting his tongue, Haru showed Charlotte how wonderful it was to kiss each other. Kissing for a long time, they parted creating a string of saliva looking at each other with hazy eyes.
It might be because they stayed a long time in the bath or it was because of the kiss that they couldn't think straight.
But at this moment suddenly they heard a noise.
"Ahh, finally, I can go to the bathroom!"
Haru was really annoyed and the moment Ichika opened the door of the bathroom. He searched for something around and threw soap right into Ichika's head directly which caused Ichika to pass out.
Charlotte hugged him tightly since she didn't want her body to be seen by someone beside him.
"Shh, it is alright. I've made him pass out. Let's go back," Haru said.
Charlotte nodded and followed him back.
Both of them went out quickly leaving behind Ichika who passed out in the bathroom.
Opening his eyes, Ichika felt quite cold and confused. "Ugh... where is this?"
In the early morning, Haru twitched his lips looking at Charlotte who was wearing a female uniform right in front of the class.
"Umm... we have a new student," Maya said with an awkward expression.
"I'm Charlotte Dunoa. Let me once say that it's a pleasure to meet you all."
Everyone only looked at Haru with a silent stare.
Haru sighed and felt helpless.
