Flash in My Hero Academia - Chapter 7
Chapter 7 All Might’s Doubts
At night, it was nearly eight o’clock in the evening. When Li Tian returned home, his aunt Yu Takeyama and his partner Nemuri Kayama hadn’t come back yet.
“Is it on the night shift?” Li Tian guessed, usually even professional Hero(es) would go home at this time, but night is undoubtedly the best fig leaf for crimes, so Hero(es)’s night watch is also inevitable of.
Having already had dinner outside, Li Tian went back to the room directly, pushed open the door of his own room, and slammed it heavily on his new bed.
“Ah, I’m so exhausted—” Li Tian groaned, lying on the pillow, looking weakly at the dark night sky outside the window, his eyes filled with exhaustion.
On the first day after being discharged from the hospital, Li Tian experienced a series of things such as gaining superpowers, moving to a new home, going back to school, testing the speed force, playing with thieves, getting lost, meeting All Might, etc., which undoubtedly made Li Tian exhausted.
Especially when using Speed Force for the first time, that kind of ultra-high-intensity exercise, if it weren’t for Speed Force’s ability to strengthen the body, Li Tian would not be able to run dozens of kilometers in one breath.
“I still have about 50,000 Yen of money left here, which is barely enough for a meal… How about I talk to my aunt about borrowing money!” Li Tian turned around in distress and looked at the ceiling.
What he worries about is not whether he can borrow the money, although his aunt is a bit black-bellied and greedy for money, but if Li Tian asks, and the reason is right, his aunt will definitely lend him money.
Li Tian was just worried about how to open his mouth. After all, what he wanted to borrow was not a small amount, but at least a hundred thousand a day, until he could have enough income to support himself. No matter how Tian finds a way to make money, it will take two or three months!
This is a large number involving tens of millions, which makes Li Tian feel embarrassed to speak.
Li Tian, who was already tired, became more and more distressed the more he thought about it, and his eyelids became heavier and drowsy.
“By the way, if you cook by yourself, you should save a lot of money!”
This was the last thought in Li Tian’s mind before falling asleep.
Li Tian fell asleep here, but on the other side of the city, All Might, who was separated from Li Tian, couldn’t sleep.
The den in the All Might home.
All Might looked at the investigation materials in his hand, his blue pupils glowing.
The call is being connected.
“Might Uncle…” An excited female voice came from the other end of the phone.
Hearing this voice, All Might couldn’t help showing a smile on his face, and said, “Melissa.”
“Might Uncle, you haven’t seen Melissa for a long time!” On the other end of the phone, Melissa shrugged her nose and said coquettishly.
“Haha, there are a lot of neon things recently, but I will definitely go to My Island to see Melissa during this year’s My Expo.” All Might laughed.
“Really? Dad will be very happy when he finds out. No, don’t tell Dad for now, and give Dad a surprise…” Melissa said excitedly, “Might Uncle, don’t tell Dad yet. Right?”
“Oh, surprise? Well then!” All Might nodded in agreement without much thought.
“By the way, Melissa, where is David? I have something to do with him.”
“Father… he should still be in the lab right now, and he won’t be able to come back until very late. Is your business important, Might Uncle?” Melissa asked curiously.
“It’s not an important matter, I just want to investigate something with the help of my island’s complete statistics.” All Might said.
“Investigate statistical data, let me help Might Uncle with this kind of thing!” Melissa said confidently.
“You… could it be…” All Might was surprised.
“Well, I’ve already obtained the qualification of my island’s trainee researcher. As long as I graduate from high school, I can officially participate in the research of my island.” Melissa’s voice came with a smile.
“It’s really… amazing!” All Might looked excited, “I remember that even David got the researcher qualification of My Island when he was in college!”
“Hey, dad got the official researcher qualification directly at that time… compared to him, he’s still a little better than me.” Melissa gestured, leaving a little bit between her index finger and thumb.
On the other side, although All Might couldn’t see Melissa’s hand gestures, she could still hear Melissa’s smugness, and couldn’t help laughing out loud.
“Okay, Melissa, please help Uncle Might to check my island’s data Curry. When a Quirkless reaches the age of 14 or 15, there is no precedent or similar example that has not awakened Quirks.” All Might said.
“Awakening Quirks at the age of fourteen or fifteen? How is that possible?” Melissa suddenly shouted in surprise, “Might Uncle, are you kidding me?”
“Of course not.” All Might shook his head. “This is a person I just discovered in Neon. After preliminary investigation, he did indeed awaken his quirks when he was fifteen years old, and it is a very powerful quirks.”
“Very powerful Quirks?” Melissa was really shocked.
Awakening Quirks at the age of fifteen, and a very powerful Quirks, is this possible?
If it weren’t for the fact that the person she was talking to was All Might, Melissa would have rushed to give him a lesson, and talk about the basic law of Quirks’ awakening.
“I know Might Uncle, I will investigate it carefully.” Melissa took a deep breath and calmed down a little, and said in a deep voice.
“Then I’ll trouble you.” All Might couldn’t help but smile bitterly.
Of course he could imagine Melissa’s disbelief and… inevitable curiosity.
After hanging up the phone, All Might stared at the phone, and after a while, he showed a gratified smile, “David! Melissa was raised by you very well!”
On the other side, Melissa, who hung up the phone, was just as All Might thought. Apart from being unbelievable, a strong curiosity that belonged to the thinking of teenagers and scientists inevitably surged up.
“Is there a case of awakening powerful Quirks at the age of fourteen or fifteen? Interesting!” Melissa stared at the computer, eyes flickering with excitement, and began to search the huge database of my island.
Awakening powerful Quirks at the age of fourteen or fifteen is undoubtedly very shocking. If there are straightforward case records in My Island, Melissa will not be unclear, so Melissa is sure that My Island does not have the same case that can be found with Melissa’s authority.
Of course, Melissa didn’t forget her big boss, she didn’t have permission, but her old father did! However, Melissa just doesn’t have any hope for the database of my island, otherwise, with her old father’s status, she would at least hear some rumors about this kind of thing.
Therefore, all she can do is to look for similar cases in the huge database, even if one of them has similar characteristics, and then conduct a comparative investigation.
Therefore, this is destined to be a huge project, and… it is also a huge project that Melissa is very interested in.
After hanging up the phone, the joy on All Might’s face gradually calmed down.
Looking at the information about Li Tian in his hand, All Might’s face gradually became serious.
The Quirkless gained powerful Quirks, and All Might felt more like his old foe’s approach than the sudden awakening of Quirks.
“I hope you’re not…” All Might murmured looking at the document in his hand.
Early the next morning, the biological clock… no, it should be said that the breakfast bell woke Li Tian from sleep, and even Li Tian’s bad habit of staying in bed could save Li Tian.
“Sure enough, even if you’re not using the Speed Force, you still get hungry?” Li Tian opened his eyes, looked at the ceiling helplessly, and put his hands on his stomach, “Okay, okay, I’ll find stuff to fill you up, stop barking shamefully.”
After speaking, Li Tian sucked in his own breath and flattened his stomach, and then laughed himself.
“Well, didn’t you come back all night?” Li Tian walked out of the room, looking at the quiet house, and muttered to himself, then walked towards the living room indifferently, the phone he put on the tea table yesterday was still there.
pick up the phone.
Li Tian looked at several missed calls in the middle of the night and a text message saying he couldn’t go home and shrugged his shoulders, but… Li Tian looked at the 1,000 Yen meal bill from his aunt, silently look up…ceiling.
This money should be barely enough for him to have an appetizer.
After tidying up, he took his schoolbag and didn’t check the time, Li Tian went out directly.
Although he already knew that such a thing might happen, Li Tian still reluctantly found a nearby cafeteria, and then… Li Tian walked out of the restaurant silently with a fresh 10,000 Yen.
Looking at the one-fifth of the meal fee that was freshly received in his hand, Li Tian suddenly had a bold idea in his mind.
Of course, the reason why an idea is called an idea is because he hasn’t put it into action yet, and it’s just left behind after a turn in his head. After all, no matter how you look at it, this kind of behavior that is similar to blackmail is really so embarrassing.
“It looks like I’m going to try to learn how to draw manga.” Li Tian sighed silently.
Compared to those novels with millions of words that are not guaranteed to be popular in this world, for Li Tian, those comics designed to save the world and Super Hero(es), such as American Comics, are more sure to sell well in this world.
As for short-term meals…
“Or, for the time being, become an all-round delivery guy…” Li Tian couldn’t help but fell into deep thought.
On the way to school, after eating and drinking, Li Tian thought about ways to make money all the way, and finally decided to give up the idea of becoming a glorious delivery boy.
As for the reason?
Li Tian saw that he still had less than half of his small coffers left, and felt very happy.
Although the Speed Force is a kind of super power that basically ignores the basic laws of physics, Li Tian is also the kind of speedster that is produced and sold on its own.
But even so, using the Speed Force still requires energy consumption, the more you use it, the more energy Li Tian will naturally need to provide.
Therefore, for the sake of his own little money, Li Tian resolutely gave up his plan to become a glorious takeaway boy, in order not to let the Speed Force, a high-end superpower, be used for nothing.
