(Kyosei's View)

My bloodlust is getting uncontrollable with my head hurting like it was being bashed repeatedly. I am trying to suppress the feeling but it seems to be trying to go further and further that it greatly pains me. If I didn't control my emotions properly, I might not be able to fight right now and broke down already. But thanks to my control, I managed to suppress it clear my head though the pain still lingers.

Still, the Hammerhead will have to pay for trying to kill Kato. The wound is quite fatal but Kato still has a chance to survive. The Hammerhead this time did not pull any punches, it took out its thorns on its back and throws them in my direction. I thought they were fast but they were just slightly fast that I can easily predict where they will be landing.

"RAAAAAGGGGGHHHH!"

The Hammerhead is now trying to charge forward like a bull with the metal head aimed straight at me. I can do a risky move but it was too risky and very, very dangerous to pull. If I am not lucky, I would be killed without being able to get back up.

I can see Tamaki carrying the fatally wounded Kato to the last truck. With the hurdle out of my way, I can now properly unleash everything without worrying for anyone to get hurt on my account. Kato will not die, his arm's sacrifice will not be in vain.

As the Hammerhead is about to reach me, I pulled out the C4 in my belt bag which I have not used during the battle against the Behemoth since the Behemoth was easily killed without much trouble. Although the C4 I am holding is not that big since the regular ones usually measure in kilos rather than grams, this should be enough to be considered on par with the explosion of the normal grenades. I just have to stick it anywhere on the body of the Hammerhead. The most notable target I am seeing right now is the head of the freak.

I have no choice, without anything that can be used as an alternative, I attached the detonator to the piece of C4 and throw it to the Hammerhead before dodging away. I barely managed to get away from the charge as it passed to me very quickly. It was like you barely managed to avoid a speeding truck running at full speed. But I managed to brush it off.

Of course, the C4 managed to get itself attached to the Hammerhead but I know it didn't stick much since I did not properly attach it to the body of the freak. Using it immediately is needed but I have to ensure the explosion is not strong enough to also kill me. I thought of running away but that is not viable since the Hammerhead will surely just chase me.

Then, it occurred to me, will the riot shields be enough to take the brunt force of explosions? It sure does but that would be good enough if I am a bit far from the explosion. Riot shields can handle the explosions of grenades but I am not sure about the C4 since the latter is meant for demolition purposes which means it will be really destructive if it explodes.

Still, I can't be too choosy, I saw a riot shield that was used earlier by one of the soldiers that died. It is not that far from me and I can probably grab it before the Hammerhead managed to get near me. My problem with the riot shield is that it is heavy. However, its kill or be killed. Hesitating a bit will be my doom. Seeing the Hammerhead is about to turn around and charge once more, I didn't wait and charge forward towards the riot shield. I also ready the detonator of the C4 to activate it once my position is already good. Then, my radio transmits Tamaki's voice.

"Kyosei get out of there now! We will be leaving!" Tamaki said.

"Just leave me here and go! Prioritize Kato's survival!"

"What about your ride back to the base?! It is still the Night Rage! It's too risky!"

"I know what I am doing so go! You guys are the main troops of the SDF, you shouldn't be relying on me much. Just go! I will stall the enemy long enough to make you all escape!"

"But..."

"Don't make me repeat twice! THAT IS AN ORDER!"

Tamaki did not get to respond since I am now angry. After saying that order, the last truck fled. Now that everything is in place, I grab the Riot shield and pulled out the detonator. The Hammerhead is still far from me. Just as I was about to push the detonate button, a speeding object suddenly arrived so fast and suddenly pierced through the Hammerhead's head.

"Damn yeah! The Gae Bolg[1] is really effective!" a familiar voice entered my ears. I looked at the direction of the speeding object earlier and saw three figures.

"Kaito? Souichi and Chie too? What are the two of you doing here?"

The three figures are indeed the three of them. But I thought they were already back on the base since Kaito and Souichi are both on the Scavenging squad and Chie is in the support squad.

"What else? We are here to rescue you. Look at you, you are in a mess. Don't worry about the big guy, it already died," Kaito grinned.

"Can you stand leader? Look at you with so many bruises in the body, you must be through some troubles," Souichi said and pulled me up.

I stood up and looked at the humongous body of the Hammerhead. Just like what Kaito said, it is already dead. A big hole appeared on the metal head of the Hammerhead and seemed to be penetrated forcefully.

"Just how...."

"You didn't know about this Kyosei but those metal that you and the scavenging team managed to get are all important things. They can be used for slaying the freaks and the dead easily. Look at this spear, I call this Gae Bolg! Even though it is not the real deal, it will is strong enough," Kaito said and showed me a long spear that is surely not a prop for cosplaying since the heaviness and the blade is the real deal.

"Where did you get this?"

"We traded those metals with these weapons in the Bang Gun store. They call these weapons and metals made from it the Piyavka," Chie said as she pushed her glasses with a smug look on her face.

[1] The Gáe Bulg (also Gáe Bulga, Gáe Bolg, Gáe Bolga), meaning "spear of mortal pain/death", "gapped/notched spear", or "belly spear", was the name of the spear of Cú Chulainn in the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology. It was given to him by his martial arts teacher, the warrior woman Scáthach, and its technique was taught only to him.
