I See One Second Into The Future: Loner In The Apocalypse – Leaf in the Wind

Leaf in the Wind

Kairos did a preliminary scan and noticed that there were four monsters coming at him from different angles from where he could see. All things considered, there were probably two more coming from behind.

rHe decided to take a step forward, whipping his metal pole towards one of the monsters in front of him.

rTheir skull exploded.

rSuddenly, Kairos an unbearably strong pain coming from his back, all the while three monsters from the front were closing in. He bent his knees slightly before shooting backwards.

rKairos slammed into the chest of a monster whose head was now right next to him by the shoulder. He was not concerned about that monster as of right now, however. Instead, he twirled the metal pole to push on the back of a nearby monster, sending it towards the three charging at the front.

rWith his two points in strength, he was able to force that monster forward, causing it to stumble in the way. At that point, Kairos felt an extremely bad pain coming from his neck.

rWith his increased willpower, he was able to respond almost immediately, sending the end of the pole towards the skull on his shoulder.

rA loud bang resounded right next to Kairos' face.

rThe monster's head exploded into a mass of warm blood that splashed across his face. Coupled with the small smile Kairos had right now, he looked like a bonafide serial killer.

rAs for the monster he had thrown ahead before, it tanked a few hits for him. One of the claws even directly pierced through, appearing on the other side.

rBy now, the metal pole had bent severely. Yet, Kairos recklessly slammed it against the monster in front of him, not wanting to lose the points.

rA fleshy tear rang out.

r[Killed Creature (Challenge Kill - One Rank Superior to Killer) - 0.3 points awarded]

rThe monster's head was torn off completely, but the body continued to obstruct the monsters, albeit only for a moment.

rKairos had no time to deal with them as two more monsters had approached from behind, getting uncomfortably close. He bent down on one knee and sent the end of the metal pole flying towards one.

rHowever, Kairos soon found a fresh pain coming from his arm as he saw the monster randomly lunge forth and bite down with his future vision.

rIn that split second, Kairos twirled the metal pole around, smashing the biting monster's teeth. Unfortunately, it was not dead. As for the other one he ignored, it attempted to swipe at him with a claw, which Kairos dodged by stepping to the side.

rRight after, he elbowed the monster's chest. Kairos felt some bone in him snap concerningly, but the creature was also forced back, with something that snapped in its own body.

rThe monster that was toothless attempted to slash him with its claws, but Kairos twirled to pole around easily, slamming it against the side of its head.

rThe skull was smashed, however part of the metal pole ended up breaking off entirely, unable to withstand the continued force exerted on it.

rSuddenly, Kairos' eyes rolled up into the back of his head.

rAn overwhelmingly strong signal of pain filled up his brain. Specifically, it came from the back of his neck. He had neglected the monster behind him for too long and that came to bite him.

rLiterally.

rKairos nearly blacked out from the agony, but was just barely able to swing his metal pole behind him. As for aiming, it was no longer something he could do right now.

rA loud bang resounded.

rSuddenly, the pain from his neck disappeared. His metal pole smashed into the chest of one of the monsters, getting it off him. There were tears streaming down Kairos' face that quickly mixed in with the blood.

rHis breathing was heavy as well.

rHowever, this was not time for him to take a break.

rKairos still felt lingering fear from his near-death experience and decided he needed to try even harder. His fists clenched a little harder around the base of the metal pole and flung it around.

rWith a crash, one of the monster's heads exploded.

rRight after, he rebounded off that impact, sending the metal pole back around towards another monster, exploding its skull as well.

rAs for the monster that was hit in the chest earlier, it seemed to struggle in terms of breathing. However, it still reached out to Kairos.

rUnfortunately for it, Kairos was easily able to dodge its sluggish movement before sending an uppercut with one end of the metal pole towards its head.

r[Killed Creature (Challenge Kill - One Rank Superior to Killer) - 0.3 points awarded]

rThe monster's head shot up and hit the ceiling before coming back down.

rDespite being in the freezer section, sweat began pouring down from Kairos' head. His body emitted strong waves of heat as he continued exerting his body.

rBy now, Kairos' fingers felt a little sore as he really had to put strength into his swings if he wanted to guarantee that the monster's skull was smashed.

rUnfortunately, there were still many more monsters left in the freezer. On top of that, because Kairos recklessly charged in, he was getting surrounded once more.

rKairos narrowed his eyes, then came up with an idea.

rWhat if he just kept moving forwards?

rThat way, he wouldn't be attacked in the back. With his agility paired with his natural ability, it shouldn't be too hard to navigate his way forward.

rAnd so, that's what Kairos did.

rHe bolted forwards, prompting two monsters in front of him to reach out with their claws. Kairos stepped to the side and thrust one end of the metal pole straight through one monster, then slammed into it with his shoulder, getting himself out of the encirclement.

rKairos turned around to see the group of monsters running towards him. He was running away, but was quickly running out of space given that this was still a relatively small room.

rAnd so, Kairos decided to charge straight towards the group once more.

rThe metal pole in his hand danced like a venomous snake, slipping through their attacks before landing on their vital points. As for Kairos himself, he shifted from the left and right almost like a leaf being blown along in the wind.

rKairos got through the tiniest gaps, almost like the monsters weren't obstructing him in the first place.

rSkulls were being smashed one by one.

rKairos' body was drenched from head to toe in blood, but he didn't seem to mind. Naturally with how reckless he was, sometimes he would mess up and see his body get ripped apart in his future vision.

rHowever, while it was only one second, his fast agility let him react to the scenario in time, bashing more skulls.

r[Killed Creature (Challenge Kill - One Rank Superior to Killer) - 0.3 points awarded]

rThe other end of his metal pole broke, leaving him with what was essentially a really long shank. Nonetheless, he continued to fight with it, bending it further with each strike.

r[Killed Creature (Challenge Kill - One Rank Superior to Killer) - 0.3 points awarded]

rBefore he knew it, there were only three monsters left in the room.

rKairos was panting heavily, with one eye closed. Though he wasn't injured, the blood covering his face forced him to close one.

rIt was at this point that the monsters seemed to be afraid. They weren't willing to recklessly charge towards him anymore.

rKairos smiled.
