She too had supernatural powers, but she had no air of pretension.
She was sociable, good-natured, and kind to everyone, the kind of girl who walked around dressed with compassion.
–Even if they both have supernatural powers, the difference is like the moon and a soft-shell turtle.
And the soft-shelled turtle appeared with a clique.
I heard wild footsteps thudding onto the terrace, and when I turned around, Bando had just brought his cronies, the other boys, with him.
As it was, when our eyes met, he smiled ferociously like a hyena that has found its prey.
Bando walked toward me in a broad, straight line, and shouted at the top of his voice, aware of his surroundings.
“Hey, hey, hey, you can't do that, Okui.
Occupying a table all by yourself, you should think a little bit about the trouble you're causing everyone.”
I wouldn't want to be told by someone who didn't think about the inconvenience any more than anyone else.
But I guess it was all right for Bando as long as he could harass me.
Bando's character was already blurred as he was always trying to take a position to harass me.
While I was thinking about how to deal with this idiot, even his cronies started to make a fuss.
As if to finish me off, Bando raised his voice.
“Stop being such a nuisance.
Get out of the way.
Mind your manners, manners!”
It was annoying to be involved with an idiot who had already lost his sense of where he stood, so I silently got up and left the place.
Bando and the others sat down at the table I had left.
–You said it was a nuisance to the people around us, but you just wanted to sit down yourselves.
I spat out in my mind.
Through my back, I could hear the cronies making silly noises.
“Okui is really annoying, isn't he?”
“Well, I can't leave a guy with bad manners like that alone.”
“Ryogo has a strong sense of justice.”
“Does Ryogo-san have a girlfriend?”
“Ryogo-san is a [Supernatural person].
No girl out there can match him!”
Obviously, the statement was intended with Uchimine in mind.
Looking back, every one of them was praising Bando with a glancing awareness toward Uchimine, and Bando was also putting on the face of a friend of justice.
However, Uchimine was conversing only with the people at her table, as if she didn’t hear them.
Bando was no exception in liking Uchimine.
In addition, he seemed to think that it was only natural for two people who have supernatural powers to go out with each other.
But the reality was as you see it.
The sight of it made me feel a little better.
On the other hand, it was a bit heavy to think that the blame for my broken heart would be directed at me.
* * *
With a heavy mood dragging me down, fifth period ended, and I welcomed after-school hours.
The old male homeroom teacher solemnly led the homeroom class, verbally informing the students of the matters to be discussed and sending a message file with the same contents to our devices.
Once school was over, I had nothing to do with Bando and the others.
When I was in elementary and junior high school, I would happily return home after school with a sense of release.
But now, all I could think about was how to get rid of Bando.
The reason why they were targeting me was obvious.
Because I was out of place.
Ever since I was a child, while everyone praised Bando's supernatural abilities, I was indifferent.
In addition, I was the only one in my class who was not on SNS, and I was also indifferent to the various contents that were popular among everyone else.
This seemed to have caught the attention of Bando and the others.
“Don't be such a smart-ass!”
“I don't know why you think you're so cool and different from everyone else, but it's really getting on my nerves!”
I remembered that the bullying started the day after Bando asked me to follow and “like” his social networking site, to which I replied, “I don't have a SNS, so I can't.” I think the bullying started the day after that.
But it was probably too late to make a new SNS account.
—I'm screwed, my life….
Numbers were strength.
The minority was always trampled by the violence of the majority.
I would never be able to beat Bando.
In the spring of my fifteenth year, when I was depressed with the bitter reality of my situation, I was struck by the following message from someone I had never met before.
“That's all I have to say.
But please wait a while before you go home today.”
I looked up at the sound of my homeroom teacher's voice.
Everyone was fussing with their neighbors.
The classroom door slid open with a loud bang, and a second later everyone else turned their heads to see what was going on.
“Hello, everyone and thank you for your patience.”
The woman who entered the room with a heroic voice and strong footsteps was a beautiful woman in a black suit and tight skirt, full of high spirits.
Her face was solemn and dignified, and she looked as if she should have been able to unite an army with a single cleaver and rule the world with supremacy.
Her physique was as tall as a man's, and her back muscles were as straight as steel, not to be outdone by the weight of her bust, which was as intimidating as a fortress.
Spinning her hips beside the teaching table, she shot us a dignified look.
“I'm Sayuri Ryuzaki, 24 years old, the director of the Extraordinary Ability Department under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.
Today, I'm here to gather people with supernatural abilities for a national project!”
All eyes in the class were on Bando.
Bando raised the corners of his mouth and smiled as if he had been waiting for them.
It was as if he were a successful actor who had been offered the lead role in a Hollywood movie.
However, Ryuzaki-san did not even take a glance at Bando, but continued her speech as if she was addressing the entire class.
“A number of individuals with supernatural abilities have already been enlisted by the Extraordinary Ability Department, and with the help of telepathic, detection, and psychometric abilities, we have identified and summoned supernatural persons from all over Japan.”
Ryuzaki-san looked out into the hallway, and Miina Uchimine, the only first-year supernatural person other than Bando, entered with a soft step, her beautiful black hair swinging.
Behind her walked an unfamiliar beautiful girl.
She was a rather petite, pretty girl with a short chestnut hair cut up one side.
She had the same gentle, drooped eyes as Uchimine, but she didn't have the mature look of Uchimine.
Rather, she still had the innocent look of a first-year junior high school student.
–Is she also a supernatural person from this school? If so, is she a senior?
The world's first supernatural person was born eighteen years ago, so the calculation fits.
The boys in the class were all in high spirits at the appearance of two beautiful girls and a beautiful woman, and all of them were making mysterious, cool faces.
What a shameful scene.
“She is Koimai Maiko.
She has been helping us since last school year, and she has psychometry ability.”
Apparently, she was not a student from our school.
As I recalled, psychometry was the ability to read information about the objects you touch and what had happened to them in the past.
“She's a very talented person.
She can tell if someone has an ability without touching them, just by letting them in her field of vision.
Koimai Maiko, I heard from the preliminary psychokinesis survey that there is a supernatural person in this class, do you know who it is?”
“There's no need for that.”
Interrupting her talk, Bando leisurely stood up.
Brushing his bangs back with a pretentious smile and looking as cool as he could, Bando said in a dramatic tone.
“I am Ryogo Bando, the strongest supernatural person in this school.
Everyone calls me the Ice Emperor, though.”
–nobody has called you that.
It's always just you calling yourself that.
I was laughing in my heart.
“Well, I'm just a student, but I'm willing to help out for the good of the country.
Uchimine, from now on, let's represent this school and work together.”
With a deliberate smile like a playboy, Bando started to flirt with Uchimine immediately.
Uchimine was not averse and returned an affectionate smile with her usual gentle expression, saying, “Yeah, let's do our best.”
The sight of it made me feel uncomfortable.
It wasn't that I liked Uchimine and felt like she was stolen from me.
Unlike the other boys, I didn't have romantic feelings for Uchimine.
I did think she was an attractive girl.
Unlike other girls who seemed to be light-headed, Uchimine was mature, intelligent, and classy.
But that was all.
I didn't know much about Uchimine.
My liking for Uchimine was no different than when I saw an idol girl and said, 'Hmmm, she's beautiful.’
I didn't have any feelings of wanting to go out with her and have a date with her or anything like that.
What I didn't like was the way the world was spinning in Bando's favor.
I knew that the world was unfair.
I wasn't a child to complain about such things now.
But I still felt bad when good luck rolled in for the wrong person.
“Ah, Ryuzaki-san, that man has Ices Kinesis ability…”
A girl with chestnut hair styled one-sided up, called Koimai, walked hesitantly toward him.
Bando, standing in the seat behind me, waited with a look of anticipation on his face.
Then Koimai walked past me….and turned back on her heel.
Her eyes met mine as she looked down at me.
When I looked at her up close, she seemed even cuter.
She looked harmless, the kind of girl that made you want to protect her.
Even though I had never met her before, I couldn't help but imagine that she tended to be family-oriented, or that she would be liked by children, and so on.
“This man, too, has supernatural ability.
He is a teleporter.”
That would be the only question mark that came out of my mouth and the mouths of the entire classroom.
Bando broke the silence, where even the sound of insect footsteps could be heard.
It says teachers don't get a pay cut.
This means that there is no pay cut that lasts forever.
It seems that even teachers can take a temporary pay cut after a violent incident or other incidents.
I am sorry if I have misled you.
Also, the source of this information is from a TV show I saw some time ago, so I am sorry if the system has changed now.
Nice to meet you! The first thing that I would like to say is, this is an MTL. Sorry if you find any confusing words/sentences.
I’ll try my best to minimalize the error.
Please be gentle with me.
Anyways, this is my first project and translation.
Hope everyone likes and enjoys it.
Oh also, this chapter has 4k words btw 😉
