My name is Mathew Stone, one night at a bar in Toronto with friends from work; I was drinking a cola and having wings with the others, most of them drank something more hard, but I hardly ever drink like that and I like cola’s better anyways. We’ve only known each other for a few weeks but we get along really well, we were talking about TV, movies, video game, making jokes and junk, watching a ball game, Blue Jays were currently ahead by 2, normal life style, someone talked about a flyer they saw about a training academy, way outside the city, he was pretty over weight so he got a few light hearted jokes at his expense, some saying, the trip there and back would help him lose the gut, I actually wondered why the flier was so far away from the facility, someone would have to be pretty determined to turn their life around, little did I know this would be my last carefree, normal night.

The next day on a construction job, I did what I was paid for, holding stuff in position while the other guy welded it together, I was pretty glad the place we were working on wasn’t more than five stories tall, I was freaked by the height and lack of ground under me as it was, I only agreed to take this job which my councillor found temporarily, if only I could have found another job somewhere else, but for now this was a survival job to keep my account in a good position until they found something more up my alley. I had regular conversation, mostly to keep my mind off how high I was and it wasn’t super necessary to focus on the task at hand, still we kept up a good pace until a storm started up; we kept working for a bit since it was mostly just spiting then it quickly got much worse so we decided to shut down for safety reasons, while evacuating one of the men was trapped by a falling girder. I went back up to help him, obviously having trouble lifting it, trying not to break my back, wishing more people had come with me, as I am gradually lifting the object off him, the other end of it is struck by lightning and I was thrown away (as was the beam so the other guy was safe although very sore)

Elsewhere in Willoway Bay, a man named Devin run’s his operation (selling large ammunitions), making sure everything is in order, he does whatever needed to keep the men in line, even if they fear him, he doesn’t care if they like him, as long as they do as their told, sure he was pretty broody a lot of the time but in this line of work, one could never be truly happy. A witness unexpectedly see’s the goings on, walking a little too far down the pier, he tries to run but one of the men blocks his path and he grabs the man by the throat with some kind of clawed glove, the fingers being driven in like five little daggers “Where do you think you’re going? I’m sorry to say you’ve met your end.” The man could barely make a sound a silencer was placed at his eye and fired “Well, almost sorry.” The shooter said with a smile “Nice work, now dispose of the body under the dock.” Devin said to his man; the body is burned to get rid of evidence, the crew close things up and drive their trucks away, Devin tells the driver he’s doing a good job and to continue handling any unwanted interference. Back in Toronto, I woke up in the hospital; all bandaged up but as far as the doctor was concerned I had healed quite well, especially considering what had happened, after a few days I was fully healed and you never would have known anything happened to me, the doctors couldn’t believe how fast I healed, but they kept me there for observation. A few days later I felt I needed to get away from everyone asking me if I was ok and all the other questions, I was glad they care but I honestly didn’t know what to tell them, I checked myself out and took a walk in the valley, just needing some alone time and enjoy nature in general, along the way I tripped and accidently knocked over a tree, at fist thinking it must have been a very old and hollow tree but looking at it, it was in very good shape. I decide to do further testing since I was pretty puzzled as to why that happened and went over to a large rock, grabbing it from the bottom, making sure I was doing the proper lift method and starting to lift, I’m shocked to see that I’m able to lift it with relative ease, as if it weighs the same as a tennis ball, I then realised I had somehow gained incredible strength, dropping the rock, freaked out at first needless to say, breathing deep to calm myself down, knowing, this is something I have to keep to myself, I couldn’t know how people would react.

The next day, back in Willoway Bay, by the water the police look over the burnt body left by Devin, as hoped, there isn’t much evidence to work with. Closer to the mid-west end Snake crosses out an old gang tag and replaces it with his own, one of his crew, Bull Dozer, a rather large guy, looked at it and said “Cute worm boss.” Snake looked at him and said “It’s not a worm you block head, it’s a snake, we’re the Snake gang, my name is Snake, why would I draw a worm? And it’s not cute.” “Then why is it smiling and razzing people?” “It’s hissing, it’s supposed to be scary, will you stop thinking it cute?” the rest of the gang snicker a bit cause it wasn’t a very good tag to them, Snake told them “I’m sick of this, we’re a laughing stock, we’ve been wreaking havoc for like, a year and no one seems to care, just once, I’d like to see our gang’s name on the front page newspaper.” Bull runs off, everyone is puzzled, he knocks over a paper box, bends over for a bit and brings it back “Here you go boss.” Snake looks at the paper and sees a copy of his tag and the gang name spray painted on it, he looks at it blank faced for a bit and looks up at Bull who is grinning like a goof, Snake sighs, pats him on the shoulder and says “Good job Bull.” I had taken a trip outside Toronto by bus to see my new potential; lifting, pushing and smashing large heavy things, I start thinking I need to do something with this, this could be helpful used the right way, would certainly make work a whole lot easier, not that I wanted to go back to that job, I can’t let this power get out of hand or go to my head, maybe if I learned to fight I could gain control and balance and all that, so I didn’t hit something and smash it to bits or lift something that would normally otherwise be impossible, well that would be more simple but maybe I can do a lot of good with this new power but I didn’t want to be a brute force punch and slug kind of hero, if I ended up doing that, I wasn’t really a fan of causing violence, nor did I really want to be special but I had to live with the fact that things were never going to be normal again. Anyways after thinking it over for the day, I packed up my stuff, moved and I went to the RS academy in Willoway Bay for training (advertised in the poster), to learn how to put as much strength as needed and no more, well, that part I would have to do myself but, still. I changed my name to Matsumoto Silverstone, the name Matsumoto actually picked up from a video game I played a lot, and at the facility I met Gabriel and Kevin Marcus, Jessica Luv, Aiden Clark, Tetsu and Zackiria Niethchi. Zackiria immediately made a bad impression saying “I expect greatness and if you can’t handle it get the F out now and don’t waste my time.” Then “Just so you know, this isn’t the typical training facility, you won’t learn any of those fancy fighting styles you may or may not have heard of, I train you to be strong, physically as well as mentally and spiritually, so you will dive head first into any danger and pulverize it. We need to give you the strength, the drive first then you learn attacks.” I figured he must know what he’s doing. The academy itself was huge, two floors and taking up a quarter of a block, loads of special rooms and a pool and weight area as well as living quarters.

As it turns out everyone is given a room to stay in, or more a small bed two per room (Jessica was on her own and since everyone was already paired up so was I) I put my bag down but before I was able to get settled we were called for our exercise. We did every work out under the sun, push ups, sit ups, chin ups, squats, suicide runs, bench presses, curls and then we had to throw the medicine ball around, I tried to throw as lightly as possible. I was actually surprised, I was pretty tired and worn out after the three hour work out and couldn’t imagine how exhausted everyone else was. Later I went out to find a place to do more personal training, having trouble finding the proper power level so no one finds out right away what I can really do, still getting the hang of hitting things and not instantly destroying it but still making the hit look like a real attack, I also knew I had to pretend things I lifted were heavy, for all I knew I’d have to fake pain and injury too, thank goodness for my old improve classes. I was still unsure if this was a great decision but it was a bit too late now, I talked to Kevin and Jessica at a free time, Kevin drove a privately owned taxi cab, he was licensed but not with any company so he could just go out at any time, when he had time, I asked how long they had been there and what I should expect, Jessica had been there seven months and honestly couldn’t stand Zackiria for a number of reasons that she didn’t mention, Kevin had been there months longer and despite being the top student also didn’t get along that well with Zackiria but they had come to an understanding long ago, I asked “If you hate it here, why do you stay.” Kevin said “Unorthodox or not he gets results, soon you’ll learn to appreciate the push. This kind of training…is definitely not for the faint of heart”

Later, Zackiria set up a little sparing match for me, I almost wanted to say “I don’t know any moves yet.” But remembered he said this wasn’t that kind of academy, the first training match was set up, I would duel Kevin Marcus, he was a very cocky son of a gun, despite this I found him somewhat likable, he seemed to only act like a pompous blowhard during a fight and he had earned a medal from Zackiria so he must be able to back up his claims Still knowing only the basics I felt this was a little unorthodox for the master to put a new recruit verses the top student and actually expect it to be fair, or maybe they want to beat some sense into the new recruits, Kevin said “Just to try to last long enough to learn something” the match began and I mostly avoided contact as much as I could, I did throw one punch but with not much momentum force and it failed to make contact anyways, which I was actually relieved about, Kevin then took a quick step in and hit me with a belly to belly supex, even with my enhanced power and durability I still felt it but like a light tap and decided to stay in the downed position. Zackiria, of course was unimpressed but felt he could help to build up my ability, I’m not sure what he was expecting out of me. Coming back to our rooms, I walk past Jessica’s, where she was levitating, I walk back because I’m not sure what I saw but she was on the ground again so I think nothing of it at the time, just my mind playing tricks.

Snake got his crew together and asked what kind of bad shit they’ve been up too, two guys had smashed up a store and robbed it, leaving the gang tag on the front door, one of them was still drinking the slurpee he took, they dumped their loot bag, another relieved several individuals of their wallets and left the gang tag on several walls, Snake was happy to hear this though not everyone was impressed, they were still rather small time stuff, then Manny Rameirez, the Spanish member, drove up the doorway with a fancy new stolen car, with several TV’s, game systems and boomboxes in it, Snake and the rest heartily congratulated him on his haul, which they could turn around and sell, then after a few seconds and collecting their loot together, Bull Dozer comes in with a large bag, Snake smiles at him “What did you bring me Bull, something good?” “Oh, it’s great boss.” He reached into the bag and pulled out…a kitten, some of the men let out an “aww” but Snake was not amused “Why the hell would I want a kitten?” Bull looked at him, shocked “Cause their adorable boss.” “No one cares about kittens, we’re trying to look bad, make people fear the name Snake, Manny here did great and you rob a freakin’ pet store? Like that’s gonna get attention.” He then turns on a TV they had previously set up and flicked it to the news “Let’s see what they have to say.” The only crime they mentioned was the stolen kittens, the rest of the gang tried not to laugh at this total backfire for Snake. Devin was also giving details to his crew, about a train carrying military goods they would rob in the next four hours, he seemed to have a great deal of information. In Rising Star that night, about two to three hours after we fell asleep, we were awaken and had a minute to get ready, Zackiria set up a large obstacle course that went through the academy, on the street, through a park and back with all kinds of hurdles, walls, rope courses, water hazards, and other stuff to get by, (which may or may not have included blades and large heavy objects dropping out of nowhere for all we knew) part way through the course Gabrial and Tetsu started to feel cramps in their sides, once again I was glad for the strength and endurance enhancement because I would have been winded within the first few seconds, as the group came to the last hundred feet or so, Aiden started to kick into another gear, passed me and was catching up with Kevin who was in the lead, Jessica came along side me and we were even for the next bit, Kevin tried not to look back but was unable to stop himself, he missed the last hurdle and went down, Aiden leaping over him and made a brake for the finish line, Kevin had gotten back to his feet and was able to cross just before me and Jess but Aiden had won, finally someone had beaten Kevin at something “Well done Aiden.” Zackiria said, he was shocked and Zackiria said “Oh, don’t act like I’m an uncaring tyrant. I’m always glad when my students succeed.”

Later, I learned some actual moves and attacks, Zackiria again stating that we would not learn any specific style cause every style has strength and weaknesses, in some cases the weaknesses where greater than the strengths, so we learned a little bit of everything and used whatever we felt suited us, people where teamed up to work together (Gabriel and Kevin where never paired cause that would be too easy for them) in one fight I watched as Tetsu was teamed with Aiden, they had already built a close friendship over the last month or so, while Gabriel was teamed with Jessica, Zackiria told everyone to fight as if they were facing an enemy, to show no weakness or sympathy and not hold back, the fight started with Aiden locking Jessica in a double underhook arm hold while Tetsu and Gabrial throw some heavy hits at each other, having enough of trying to struggle, Jessica stomps Aidens foot and nails him with a hard groin shot, he goes down to his knees and she follows up with a roundhouse to the back of his head, I look to Kevin and say “Remind me to stay on her good side.” “As long as you return the favor.” He said, Tetsu puts Gabrial down with a headlock driver immediately after her attack and as Jess is charging him, he does a rolling snapmair on her followed by a kick to the ribs. The fight declared over, Zackiria commends Testu but states next time Aiden should not give any leeway to an opponent because they will not likely do the same, later I talk to the others, Gabriel says he finds the training to be exactly what he wanted to push himself, already showing he was a bit of a teacher’s pet, telling stories that he heard or things he learned since joining with his brother, he might not be as self absorbed as his brother but there was still just something about him, his attitude, that I did not like, he was the typical macho guy, not exactly dumb but not overly intelligent, he recently quit a job as a bouncer at a club after three years because of to many arguments with his boss who probably thought he was too rough with the guests, whereas Tetsu and Jessica where not expecting it to be this extreme, we start making jokes “Is he trying to make us the Justice League? Should I go out and get a Cape and blue suit with an S on it?” I say, realising that’s exactly why I’m here, sort of, I mean now that I was here, that’s more or less how it would go. Aiden tells us he’s here because he wants to be a cop like his dad; Kevin asks “Isn’t this kind of training a little extreme for a cop? I mean I saw two of them but I had no idea there was seven. You train like this more like the army or some extreme security team.” Aiden says that seven cops had trained here and now work under Chief Joseph Alexander, making us think, is crime really that bad here?? I asked Kevin “If you’re not gonna join the army police mortal kombat task force why are you doing this? Get back at a bully?” “I just enjoy being awesome.” I scoffed but I was sure there was more to it.

I check out Aiden and Tetsu’s room, Aiden had a job at Tim Horton’s, Tetsu had built a wide array of battle type gadgets and weapons, before coming to Rising Star he had taken courses in metal work, cybernetics, computer teck and just generally does a lot of tinkering. Obviously strengthening more than just his body, he was currently unemployed (for some reason) but would likely not have too much trouble finding something if he actually started looking, (though I thought that’s what he said to cover up his government spy job) I look things over, with him insisting I not touch anything, I had to resist reaching my finger out just to aggravate him for fun. Sometime later Zackiria sent the Marcus brother, Aiden and Tetsu to fight the Snake gang, a group who have caused minor trouble for close to a year, I had to question why we were doing that when the cops should be dealing with them. Zackiria said the cops have better…bigger things to deal with and his good friend Joseph lets them go after gang’s and whatnot as training, as Aiden said before seven police where trained here and now protect the city, at this point I thought “What have I gotten myself into?” I had half expected that this was more the “learn to fight so you don’t have to fight” type training but it was more something out of an anime or the old martial arts movies I wondered why there wasn’t any discipline training through meditation and breathing, since it too was pretty big in many of those. Kevin told me later, before he left, that things where actually worse before until a confrontation between Zackira and himself, I said “Man, this place is too serious, we need more fun and comedy.” and invited everyone to come to some comidy improve show….well, not Zack, I’m sure he would have said no anyway. While the four were out I watched Jessica do some sword training, she was quite descent but definitely still needed work, she is generally soft spoken even though in a fight she is clearly a force to be reckoned with, also pretty intellectual and not overly obsessed with her looks, though she was a model for some girly mag I never heard of, with extra short hair she still looks pretty cute. The four who went out after the gang, eventually found them robbing another corner store, at first only seeing three and thinking they did not need to send so many out to fight them, while hiding behind a truck, Kevin thinks about how they should approach when Aiden charges forward, feeling a strategy was unnecessary and flies at Bull Dozer with an elbow attack into a kip up, then trying to kick Manny, the others step out as Aiden gets his leg caught and bashed, soon four more members round the block, increasing the odds more for the snakes, Tetsu rolls forward driving a kick into the gut of one then standing into a back roundhose, Kevin and Gabrial, annoyed at Aiden, fight it out with the remaining gang members, the leader himself not actually doing anything, just yelling order’s, Gabrial irish whips one guy into his brother who goes for a powerslam, at this point Aiden has worked out the kinks in his leg and helps the brothers, finally being worthwhile, dropkicking one guy while hooking another’s head, he dropped him down for a neck breaker, Tetsu jumped up, hooked his legs around a guy’s neck and flung him over, right on top of a car, Gabrial hooked another guy and drove his head into the bumper of a nearby car, Bull, gets back on his feet, gives his head a shake and charges at Kevin who sidesteps it, sending Bull into a light post, earning a facepalm from Snake “Come on you idiot’s.” the others ask him why he doesn’t help if he thinks their doing such a bad job and he say’s “Why should I, I’m the leader, I have you guy’s to do the fighting, I thought you where touch, besides, even without me the numbers should still be in our favor.” Manny also doesn’t like the way things are going and starts to hotwire a car while his comrades are tossed, dropped or kicked left and right, but in the end the Snake gang escapes with only a few miner bumps and bruises and the stolen car, only one member is left for the police to pick up. After all of us got back from the comedy show, a warehouse fire was shown on the news.

The next day we were doing more training, I was surprised at this point that we weren’t made to break stacks of boards, concrete or some other super dense object, though, I probably could, wouldn’t that surprise Zackiria. The four that went out the day before, as punishment for letting their targets get away where put into a sauna like room and had to hang upside down while holding nearly double their own weight, the last one to drop the weight would be allowed to eat the next day. That was Gabrial who was very proud of himself and flexed and posed and junk to pretty much everyone’s annoyance, Zackiria stated “Don’t get cocky, there’s always someone stronger or smarter.” Before nightfall, despite the loser’s starve thing Zackira did bring the others a sandwich and drink, or so I was told. Partway through the next day Jessica, Aiden and I are told buy Zackira to deal with the Snake gang once again, telling Aiden “I trust this new team is to your liking, please don’t do anything crazy this time.” I was not happy about having to go out like that, I was having a hard enough time holding back and all that sometimes, never mind being in a real fight situation, and I also had no idea how much Aiden had left in him so I told him just to hold back and stay out of the way. Since Kevin had free time he went out with his car, a Hyundai Elantra GT sedan he got a taxi sign for. As for Aiden, Jess and myself, after a half hour of searching the streets, we found the gang at one of their usual hang outs (couldn’t help thinking if they are this easy to find, why hadn’t the cops picked them up? It wouldn’t take up that much of their time) I kinda just wanted to call the cops then, but heck, maybe they would just laugh and say, that’s your job. We go into the long abandoned club, trying to be stealthy but on seeing the group Aiden proves to have too much aggravation in him or maybe he was just not thinking straight from being over tired, either way he was unable to remain quite so we were found out, some of the gang fought while others tried to run (including Snake and Manny), during the confrontation we heard a window smash, look over and Jessica immediately recognizes her brother, Dan, who was snatching a duffle bag full of cash, Jess had not seen or spoken to her brother in three months and now to see him in this gang clubhouse or whatever, stealing their loot, she wanted answers and so she chased after him. The rest of the gang took advantage of the distraction and made a run for it, Aiden chased after them, I yelled after him as I did light attacks, knocking out the few gang guys left, telling him to just let the rest go it wasn’t that big a deal as he went out of sight, they all rounded the corner and Aiden was stabbed by Snake for his troubles. I rounded the corner a few seconds to late and see him lying there, bleeding and attack the one called Bull Dozer, who was either not fast enough or not bright enough to get away with the rest, leaving him with a broken leg and a cracked rib, the other’s got away. Meanwhile Jessica was now taking advantage of the lack of witnesses and took to the air, flying around to find her bother, she was extraordinarily graceful and would normally take joy in flying but her mind was on tracing her brother, she eventually spotted him talking with another girl, Sandra Genkins, Jess lands and confronts them. Sandra shows off her incredible speed, not quite Flash speed but way faster than any normal human, hitting Jess several times in a matter of seconds, taunting her after, “Do you know how many times I could have killed you there? You’re lucky I’m unarmed.” Sandra said she and Dan saw the three of them go into the hideout and goaded her away from her allies into this trap, now if things go well, there will be three less pests to interfere with their plans, drawing out a knife to finisher her off now. Dan, conflicted, stepped between the two girls and let his sister escape, not entirely surprising but still, he would likely face punishment afterword. Back near the old club, I called back to inform the others what happened and called for an ambulance for Aiden and Bull, slightly more reluctantly for Bull, but sadly Aiden had died before they got him to the hospital, I felt bad for him, he seemed like a good guy if in a bit of a rush. That night I return and hear that Jessica has been expelled for her desertion. Tetsu wanted revenge on the gang for Aiden but Zackiria forbade it, saying it was Aiden’s own fault, he was stubborn and he should have trained harder and done as he was told, work as a team, been more stealthy and be more careful. Kevin is also pissed off saying this never would have happened if Zackira simply sent any other person other than a worn out and half-starved Aiden. Zackiria was somewhat conflicted once he was on his own, thinking maybe he should have just kicked Aiden out of the academy since he had proved to be such a failure before.

In the next part of training, which everyone but Gabrial was not overly enthusiastic to do, thinking, “shouldn’t we get some kind of grieving time?” we had to hold onto an electric wire to better our pain tolerance or something dumb like that. Zackiria walked up to it “Pain is like fear, it’s a matter of choice, you can choose to stand and face it.” He says as he grabs hold of the wire “Or you can sit and cry.” He says as he releases “So who will be the master….and who the slave?” A few days later the cops found several bodies including a LT. and other officers at what was an attempted raid of a human trafficking opp, no attempts at all to hide the bodies, much of them the people being trafficked, still there as if they didn’t matter, this time there is a bit of DNA evidence, the ongoing violence had become too much for Chief Alexander to ignore so he got together his men “Listen up people, we lost a lot of our own here cause we underestimated what we were up against, we will not make that mistake EVER again, we’re gonna go after the, hard, tonight, get out there and talk to your informant’s and any other lowlife willing to talk for a little slack…or at least a less painful takedown.” He also calls Zackira for help, his men grumble a bit, they were not happy with the set up as is, they felt they should have been dealing with all crime themselves and didn’t want help from glory hogging rookies, apparently this was one of the “bigger problems to deal with” I was told about and we were still being called in for back-up, none of us were happy about this and Tetsu would obviously rather go after the Snake gang but was told he must follow order’s and to go after them alone would make him a vidulante, he questioned “Isn’t that what we are already?” but apparently that was not the case. The Marcus brothers and I begin to talk and somehow Gabriel is still defending Zackiria’s decisions, saying “He knows what he’s doing, we are all going to be much better fighters because of him. If this wasn’t cool Chief Alexander wouldn’t be going along with it. Hell, he’s practically begging for us to come help.” even his brother started to get annoyed by now, wondering where his brother’s common sense was.

Reluctantly we all go, plus a dozen cops including several of the former trainees we’re sent on another raid after finding Devin’s next job at one of three police evidence and ammo lock ups through an informant, it was very obvious the officers didn’t want us there but I couldn’t blame them really, which made the apparent deal between us and them seem even more obscured. When we got to the shipping facility everyone gets into positions, quietly talking over walkie-talkie before the call to strike is made. It doesn’t take long for things to explode out of control (and as to be expected from every action movie, a rookie officer is killed by a shotgun blast) the brothers are dealing with a group of ten guys, kind of enjoying putting the training to good use, (also showing that with proper training and better stamina it was possible to fight overwhelming odds, as Zackiria said) Tetsu finally got to use his bo staff he had been working on for the last few days when facing off with a small group which go down rather easily, already thinking of changes to be made to the weapon. The cops are firing and actually hitting their targets a lot of the time, though quite a few of them were taking hits too and the group and I were still pretty much thinking, we aren’t doing anything that the regular police couldn’t have done, in fact since they were armed they were better, though I guess they wanted to take as many alive as they could, but did we really need to be here and if they need us so bad why don’t they just give us badges already. I saw the leader, Devin sneaking out the back as his men laid cover fire, following behind soon after so chased after them, catching up with Devin who started swinging at me with his shock stick, I slide under the first swing and dodge a few more but not every strike, I eventually grabbed the stick, thrust my palm into his chest sending him flying into some boxes and break the weapon in my hand, thinking “Wow, something I was trained to do actually came up in a real life situation.” The others who fallowed fired on me, I shoved a dumpster into them, knocking them out and pinning them to the wall Devin started to get up from the pile of broken boxes, obviously he was not expecting to face someone like me but he showed something unexpected as well… he did not need the shock stick, his hands charged up from the electric powers he himself had, “Well. That’s….gonna suck, but it won’t help.” I say, trying to be tough, the fight went on, him shocking me while he threw a punch or threw bolts at me which I was able to dodge, for the most part…almost, I never was that agile or had good reflexes the attacks stunned me but, again, the training pays off, with me still trying to hold back it took a while and I wanted to finish it before I actually did pass out for all the electrical charging, I was soon able to subdue him by tackling him into a wall….but not demolishing it, thank goodness but I did cause a crack, after I checked his pulse I looked over the wall and knew it could hold until it was fixed, I really hate the fact that I knew that but I still knew, I suppose it was a good skill to have. Somehow I had managed to keep my true ability a secret for now, the rest of his crew were also dealt with and locked up before nightfall, we all returned to Rising Star victorious.

Zackiria commended us on a job well done, we had mixed feelings at this point but for the most part we felt pretty good except for Tetsu who decided to leave, not liking Zackiria’s methods or the fact that he doesn’t seem to care about his students. Zackiria wasn’t going to stop him, he saw no point, his mind was made up, and everything went back to business as usual in just a few hours.
