Exo Drazz had always been a timid child.
While he had become a bit more open to communication in his high school years, he could still get a hunch about the people he wasn’t supposed to talk to because they were dangerous.
One such person was Ulura Nightsong.
She was quite tall, with long straight black hair, a fringe combed to the sides, skin a bit lighter than that of Exo himself and poison-green eyes. A year older than the techno-genius, Ulura had already become known as the Queen of Sunbird when he enrolled in the deviant-only academy in Deckstoru. And after his enrollment this young woman had proven over and over that she was the most powerful, most beautiful and most ruthless one among all the students. Hence everyone who valued their lives and had half a brain knew to steer clear of both her and all the students in her class.
The people from Exo’s class were the most reckless, insane or maybe downright stupid people he had met, however, so they engaged in confrontations with Ulura’s class on multiple occasions. Never had there been a clash as big and destructive as the one on the day a girl named Yuki Iceflame joined the techno-genius’ class.
Right now the white-haired beauty was apologizing to Ms. Nightsong as her dreadful gaze pierced the new student.
(Yuki) ‘-I’m terribly sorry about your lunch. I got caught up in the fights and didn’t see you. I’ll get you a new lunch right away. If your uniform got stains on it anywhere, I’ll pay for it. And anything else I can do to make up for …’ (Ulura grabbed her by the throat and lifted her from the floor)
(Ulura) ‘-Are you deaf as well as dumb? You’ll pay for what you did with pain!’
(Yuki) ‘-I think that’s going too far …’
Ulura created a blast of thin green laser beams from the hand she was holding Yuki by the throat with, those lasers cutting the walls, ceiling and floor of the canteen in several places. The students who were within the range of the attack managed to respond fast enough by creating shields with their devas to block it and thus saved themselves.
The lasers’ main target was thrown back a couple of meters and crushed in the floor with more cuts on her uniform and skin, by that time the boys from her class having gathered behind her, each one of them looking angrier than the next. Exo was the last to join the boys’ group while Hikaru helped the amnesiac up.
The techno-genius wasn’t able to fight but he could at least protect his classmates from Ulura’s wrath. If there was anyone who could make him stand up for something, it was the hot heads from his class. And in spite of having just joined them, Yuki was one of those hot heads as well now.
The girls from the class also gathered around the baby doll while Ms. Nightsong’s classmates gathered around her, Drazz looking around and realizing all the fights in the canteen had come to a stop and everyone’s attention had been focused on the two classes.
(Hikaru) ‘-It was an accident, Nightsong. Give it a rest.’
(Ulura) ‘-You her babysitter, Summerbolt? Care to take her punishment? Your valiant stunts won’t work with me, though. It’s her pain I long to see.’
(Seiren) ‘-Bitch, if pain’s what you want …’
Yuki looked at her classmates and then stepped forward, looking serious now.
(Yuki) ‘-You want to fight me for what happened?’
(Ulura) ‘-A fight is an overstatement, but you can call it that if you want.’
(Yuki) ‘-I’m fine with that so long as you don’t hurt anyone from my class.’
(Tokura) ‘-Yuki, you don’t have to do this! We can handle this …’ (King pulled him back, Tokura looking at the giant)
(King) ‘-It’s her choice, Tora. You know everyone’s got to prove their worth in Sunbird.’
(Vega) ‘-They don’t have to prove it by going up against Ulura, though!’
(Yuki) ‘-Just let me deal with this, OK? It’s my fault, anyway, so I’ll take responsibility. Don’t jump in without even knowing how the fight’s going to turn out.’
(Ulura) ‘-Let’s go to the inner yard, then. Best place to fight without holding back.’
Ulura then led the way to the rectangular grass-covered area of Sunbird’s inner yard. It had oak trees with circular benches built around them in its four corners and one bigger and one smaller oak tree in the centre with the biggest bench of all the five in the area around them.
After the students formed something like a circle with a large diameter around the opponents, Ms. Nightsong stepped forward with a mocking smile on her face, Yuki doing the same, but without showing any emotion.
(Yuki) ‘-Are there going to be any rules to this fight?’
(Ulura) ‘-The fight will end when I decide I’ve made you suffer enough.’
(Yuki) ‘-That’s simple enough.’
Cracks appeared on the ground around the baby doll’s feet as she jumped up over ten meters, enveloping her fists in ice and getting ready to hit the ever-so-confident black-haired beauty with them. Many green lasers started to swirl around Ulura’s body a second later and shot at her opponent in a number of fast long-range high-precision attacks while Yuki was still in the air.
The newest member of Exo’s class immediately switched to defense, covering her entire body in ice, managing to dodge a few of the lasers before being fully armored by her deva. When she landed back on the ground, many more lasers were sent to Yuki, but these were in the shape of concentrated bullet-like shapes, the white-haired beauty realizing with shock that her ice armor couldn’t fully stop them. That shock provided an opening for Sunbird’s queen to teleport right in front of her through a single green laser beam.
Right after coming out of that laser beam, Ulura split her body in a number of lasers that cut and pierced her opponent’s ice armor with high speed, leading to its total destruction soon enough. This attack had caused damage to the body under the armor as well, the amnesiac’s school uniform being all but destroyed. After the lasers disappeared, she fell to her knees, left only in her underwear and with a number of cuts on her skin. Ms. Nightsong quickly returned to her normal form behind Exo’s classmate when that happened and grabbed her by the head before she could fall on the ground.
(Ulura) ‘-The smaller the shape used for an attack, the more concentrated amount of the deva it will carry. That’s why laser bullets can get through your armor better than laser beams. You don’t even know that and agreed to face me? (Ulura now channeled tens of green lasers from her arm to the palm of her hand so she could run them through Yuki’s head) Maybe I went overboard right from the start. (the high-school tyrant sighed) Oh, well. I guess my feast won’t last as long as I thought.’
A crack of thunder echoed through the inner yard as Hikaru appeared in front of Ulura, having grabbed Yuki’s shoulder to pull her away from the attack. Seiren had followed suit, coming out of a burst of bright red fireworks behind Ms. Nightsong and grabbing the wrist of the hand she was planning to use to hurt the duo’s friend even more.
(Hikaru) ‘-The fight’s over. You won.’
(Seiren) ‘-Now let her go and end this, so everyone can go back to class.’
Ulura’s irises turned to a brighter hue of green as her rage was unleashed upon the rivals with a 360-degree barrage of laser beams and bullets, the two cloaking themselves in their devas to defend against that attack.
(Ulura) ‘-My victory against her was assured from the start, you insects! I didn’t come here just to defeat her, but to enjoy her pain!! And since I haven’t had enough of that, I might as well make you two suffer some as well!!!’
A chill was felt in the air as a hand grabbed Seiren’s hand that was holding Ulura by the wrist, starting to cover his skin in ice. Yuki was the one who had done that, Blackscale looking at her dead serious face now.
(Yuki) ‘-Step back. I’ve got this.’
Seeing the white-haired beauty’s response, Hikaru and Seiren both smiled.
(Hikaru) ‘-I was just thinking you went down too easy.’
(Seiren) ‘-If you don’t want us to step in again, kick this bitch’s ass, girl.’
The rivals teleported back to their classmates while Yuki got back on her feet, Ulura looking rather irritated now.
(Ulura) ‘-I didn’t hold back with that last attack. You shouldn’t be able to move freely.’
A decisive smile appeared on the baby doll’s face then as she took her battle stance and started covering her body in ice again.
(Yuki) ‘-I’m not your ordinary deviant.’
(Ulura) ‘-Your ice armor again? That’s not going to work against me.’
(Yuki) ‘-If you’re so sure, go ahead and finish me already.’
The mocking smile returned to the black-haired beauty’s face as she puffed out her cheeks. A wave of laser beams and bullets greater than the one she had unleashed against Hikaru and Seiren was launched from her mouth as a result. The difference was this time the roar-type attack was focused on Ms. Iceflame rather than going for a 360-degree range.
Ice walls formed around Exo’s newest classmate as the beams and bullets reached her, icy spikes coming out in rows from the ground between her and Ms. Nightsong, eventually reaching Sunbird’s queen.
She was fast enough to make pillars of wide laser beams come out of the ground around her to destroy the spikes, as one of those spikes broke into pieces, Yuki coming out of it and landing a solid hit on Ulura’s face.
(Yuki) ‘-You should’ve walked away after the first round, Nightsong!! I didn’t have much of an incentive to fight you before, but after you attacked Hikaru and Seiren, things got personal!’
