Toran no Kakusareta Chikara: Toran’s Hidden power 4
Toran felt both complimented and insulted at the same time. He is not used to being called ‘good-looking’.
Soon, everyone left to their classes, except for Mikazuki and the principal.
“Well, I’ll see you later, Toran!” Mikazuki said with a smile.
“Okay, bye,” Toran replied.
Toran looked towards the principal. He sat down on the ground, so he did too, next to him.
“Did you want to talk to me?” Toran asked.
“Yes I did,” Mr. Akura said. “Do you know what Ryokusenkai is?”
Toran wondered for a moment. It felt like he heard that somewhere, and yet, he cant remember at all. “Not exactly.”
“Well, I’ll tell you. Ryokusenkai is a unique type of power you can use as a form of either attack or defence. You just saw me use it, and you used one yourself.”
Toran looked at the large hole on the ground. He felt rather guilty than worrying about him using it.
“You can use the power using Alaston, which is a special type of force. If you can completely master it, the destruction force will be strong enough to wipe out the whole village here… No, the whole continent of where we are right now. It si a skill I admired, and used 40 years of my life to achieve the lowest level of Alaston, level 1. When I sensed your force in the school, I felt something awkward, and I realized what it was now. You are born with the highest level of Alaston. Tell me, since when were you able to use Alaston?”
“Since I was born.”
“Wow. And you’re only 7 years old. I’ll tell you this: Alaston is NOT a power you can use anywhere. If you can’t control the force, you may release enough force to destroy something you don’t want to destroy. You are born with the highest level of Alaston, level 10. I can tell that in about 2 weeks, you won’t even need to charge to use Alaston, just like me.”
“I didn’t know that the power I had was so special… I’ll be careful when using it and I’ll train so I can control it and master it! Don’t worry!”
“I like your spirit and willingness. A man with a bright future like you will surely master ti and sue it for good purposes. I wish you luck!”
“Thank you, Mr. Akura!”
As he walked away, I thought about it.
“Alaston, eh? I finally know what the name of this power is. I don’t know what I should do after mastering it, I guess I’ll make some friends and vow to protect them at all cost! And that includes Mikazuki.”
He smiled as he walked back to school.
Later that day, he fixed the roof, even though the teacher told me that he shouldn’t worry so much about it.
As he walked out of the school, due to some circumstances, he didn’t have a home. But as he walked past one of the houses, I heard the TV on.
“We have found a big crater on the east side of Amitaruton, where nobody lives. There is no official traces on who did it. Earlier this morning, We have also heard of a boy and a girl flying from an air pilot. We do not know if those 2 people have anything to do with what has happened to that crater. Police are currently investigating this, trying to find out what did they do this for. Is there a specific meaning to all this?”
Toran felt guilty, but there wasn’t anything he could do right now. Hopefully, the police will give up, because he knew that they won’t find him, and Mikazuki as well. He walked over to a tree, and sat there. He wasn’t hungry or thirsty, and therefore, just slept there.
“This is going to be interesting.” Toran thought.
