World Record Chapter 22

22. Black Crest Group

On the next day, Sunday.
A huge black flag was raised in the town at Sapporo.
Red words of 『Black Crest Group』 were drawn on the flag, and the people who saw the flag, opened their eyes wide as they saw the bottom part of the flag.

[What is superpower!?]

Those words at the bottom of the flag attracted more attention, and the man who shouted those words, had a satisfied face and he starts to shout again.

[Superpower is, an evil curse that have destroyed the bright era where people live! Superpowers appeared at the same time the Unknowns appeared! Therefore, superpowers were accepted gladly by the world! However, don't you ever thought that the Unknowns appeared because of the superpowers!? In addition, weak superpower users! Is it fun having your life controlled according to your superpower's rank!? The answer is NO! Absolutely NO!!]

The man raises both arms as if trying to persuade everyone. And the man continues to speak.

[This era is dominated by superpowers! The country has changed into relying completely in superpowers! The world has changed into a world that can't last without superpowers! What's so nice in living such life!? I can only see that this era is painful!]

And, the black haired man together with the black haired group, said this.

[[[CHANGE THE WORLD! INTO AN ERA WITHOUT SUPERPOWERS! RETURN THE WORLD INTO HOW IT WAS BEFORE! INTO A WORLD OF BLACK HAIRS!]]]

The song sang by those people resounds, and the air vibrates by it.
The people who saw that, gulped unintentionally and open their eyes wide.

And, the man who sees that--Byson, inhaled and shouted this.

[CHANGE THE WORLD! For that reason, we, the Black Crest Group, will KILL the prime minister!!]

Just like that, the Black Crest Group consist of only black hairs, head towards the heart of Sapporo without hesitating.

A few minutes later.
At the Sapporo's Special Forces branch, Sumikawa Ayame lied down on her bed while being angry in her room.
Because, during the internship on the other day, Ayame waited for the Powerless Black King to come, but the person himself, unexpectedly head to another place for internship. And also, from the information she gathered, he went to a 『Shampoo company』.

(Seriously, I'm like an idiot, waiting for him in anticipation! I'll definitely meet him and complain!)

Ayame said so in her heart, and sits upright.
She waited but he didn't come. His attitude that seems to have no interest in the Special Forces. A totally unreadable mind.
Although there's various things to consider, Ayame only thinks that 『I just need to confirm it by meeting him』. Although she don't know how long she can stay in this Sapporo branch, she thought of meeting him before she returns to Tokyo.
She noticed that her room is very quiet, and she took the television remote control near her and turned it on.

『T-This is broadcast on the spot! At this moment, a group of men calling themselves the "Black Crest Group", is raising a riot in the town of Sapporo! According to them, they seemed to have made an incomprehensible statement of returning this world how it was before. They are currently heading towards the Special Forces station in the heart of Sapporo! Their aim is to kill the prime minister!』
[.........What?]

Ayame raised such a voice instinctively.
After all, Ayame is currently in the Special Forces dormitory which is located next to the Special Forces station.
And, above all--

[W-Why are those people......all black haired?]

That's right, the men displayed on the television, have black hair.
In this era, black hair is the proof of a powerless, and even if people who have superpowers used dyes, the black dye won't even last for a few minutes.
That is the thing carried by humans in return for the mastery of superpower. And, it can't be overturned no matter what kind of dyes were used.
When thinking so, such voice can be heard form the television.

『Regarding their black hair, it's plausible to think that they used the black hair dye, "Overdye SRB" that was released a few years ago. According to rumors, once you use it, the dye will last as long as you don't use a bleaching agent. And, it is said that the shampoo was invented by a powerless who lives in Sapporo』

At an instant, Ayame's shoulders twitched.

『Ah, new information has been received! Apparently, the Black Crest Group uses flame-type superpowers and flamethrowers. The polices that arrived on the spot, were defeated just now by those! That's all from here!』

Together with the voice, the screen changed into a different news studio, and a familiar male announcer who wears glasses and a female announcer talk about it.
Ayame exhales and stands up.

[In the present condition, I will seek the decision of the higher ups as a Special Forces member, and after that, I will head to that place. But, those stupid members might head towards the place directly]

She said so while throwing off her lounge wear.
The superpower's crest can be seen on her small buttocks. She opened her locker in her underwear, and she took out a black top and bottom set of man's suit, and she starts to wear it.
Underneath the suit, it is equipped with bulletproof vest, knee guard and elbow guard. And she put the laser gun that's given to the members of the police organization, into the belt on her waist.
On top of that, this suit is a high rank equipment that's sent to Ayame by the higher ups, and it's made of the Sacred Beast Unknown that was defeated by Black Pandora.
--Above all, this was made according to the Black Pandora's combat uniform.
Ayame nods as she looked at her appearance reflected in the mirror, and exits the room, and ran to that place.

And--the Minister of Defence and the A rank member, Isakai Manabu who look at her figure from the shadows.

[What should I do? Should I follow her without getting noticed?]

When Isakai asked so to Minister Kanekura, she loosen her expression and shook her head.

[No need. I'll keep an eye on her with my clone. Or rather, it's a doubt whether or not there's enemy remaining when Ayame-chan arrives]
[......Eh? Did you send someone already?]

Minister Kanekura didn't answer his question.
But she had a pleasant smile on her face, and black flames were burning deep in her eyes. Isakai who saw that, cold sweats started to flow.

[Come on, I need you to investigate on the warp hole, so let's go and investigate at once]
[Eh, now?]
[Of course]

She starts to walk as she said so, and Isakai starts to follow her afterwards.
But after a while, he stops and look at the direction Ayame ran.
As expected, he can't help but to think of this.

(W-Who on earth...did she send?)

The feeling of wanting to go there, wells up inside himself.

Because Iwato woke up early in the morning, he had been training in the training room until now.
After that, he took a shower while enjoying his shampoo time which is also the foundation of his life. At this moment, he searched for the television remote control while drying his hair with a towel at the living room.
The time now is slightly before 7 a.m.
Yesterday, Tsumugu and Karen fought against each other through video games until late night, and they are now sleeping on the sofa. They probably will not wake up until noon.

[Remote control, remote control......found it]

Iwato took the remote control on the sofa, and he turned toward the television and pressed the power button.
And--know the fact.

『T-This is broadcast on the spot! At this moment, a group of men calling themselves the "Black Crest Group", is raising a riot in the town of Sapporo! According to them, they seemed to have made an incomprehensible statement of returning this world how it was before. They are currently heading towards the Special Forces station in the heart of Sapporo! Their aim is to kill the prime minister!』
[.........What?]

Iwato opened his eyes wide as he sees the live broadcast from the television.
What displayed is a very familiar hair color group and the black flag that has the red words of "Black Crest Group".
And, the fact of--

『Regarding their black hair, it's plausible to think that they used the black hair dye, "Overdye SRB" that was released a few years ago. According to rumors, once you use it, the dye will last as long as you don't use a bleaching agent. And, it is said that the shampoo was invented by a powerless who lives in Sapporo』

Upon hearing that, Iwato hit his head with his hand instinctively.

[Overdye SRB......you say?]

Overdye SRB.
That's the name of the shampoo he used in the bathroom just now, and his own source of income that's manufactured deep down in his house.
The towel that covered his head, falls to the floor, and drop of water flow from his hair to his face, and drops to the floor.
That's as if--the tear of shampoo.

(Shampoo is......crying)

Return this world that's dominated by superpower, into how it was before. That's certainly a perfectly fitting phrase. Nowadays, the world can't be established without superpower because without it, Unknowns can't be defeated.
That's why, Iwato didn't particularly deny such ideology, while as for killing that prime minister, he thinks of 『If you can kill that idiot, then please kill him』.

However--

Iwato put his glasses on the table, and head towards his room.
Immediately after entering his room, he head towards his desk.
The bottom drawer of the desk.
Iwato opens the drawer without hesitation.
There's a gun and a belt inside the drawer. And, there's a black top and bottom suit, a white shirt and a black necktie.
There's also a black leather shoes and--a black cloak.
Iwato only took the cloak, and he grasped it tightly while saying 『Sorry』 as it has been three years since he used it. He then muttered this.

[That ideology. I'll crush it for the sake of shampoo]

What if the shampoo of a shampoo maniac was used for crime?

--The answer is the criminal will be crushed thoroughly.

Tear of shampoo. Is he an idiot?
