"Everyone, thanks. This tactic was pushing it a bit, but our squad pulled through together. If a single member in our team didn't do their part, we couldn't have won."
He had ranked low in physical strength and mental resilience and had been placed in a lower class, but he had great talent in manifesting his psychic powers and was placed in class B.
Han mumbled and drank while seated. He endured the sting of the carbonation and emptied the can. The blood splattered around Han's mouth washed down with the drink. The carbonation prickled his neck as he chugged down its contents.
"I don't like to stand out. Everyone in Ark is trying to compete with each other. Anyone who chooses to compete for the top is bound to have rivals trying to step on you. Do you know class A's Simon Dell? He had transferred together with you guys. Everyone refers to him as a genius, but in turn everyone in class A sees him as nothing but a rival. Instead, by following the pace of the crowd, I can get promoted with ease and comfort. The key point is to make sure you're never at the top until the very last moment.
The seventh squad outright hated on the thirteenth squad and purposely spread hateful rumors. People gave them the cold shoulder whenever they passed the thirteenth squad in the military training grounds or cafeteria.
It was difficult to use a flat rock as an airbeat. Airbeats were robot drones that moved with streams of energy. Airbeats would stay afloat even without the aid of telekinesis. On the other hand, flat rock airbeats required a constant stream of telekinesis to remain afloat.

Dimitir was shoved forward by his squad members. They quickly went up to start their shooting drills. Han momentarily watched Squad 5 and then went into the gymnasium.
If Han had not been a squad leader, if he were not a soldier who would be sent to war, Han would not say one bitter thing toward Kuro.
Each squad members started warming up their airbeats. The members on top of the airbeats got into position. Squad 7 had prepared an all out intensive surprise attack.
Simon spoke as if he had declared war. He forced himself and managed to control seven airbeats. This required intense focus and mind. He had to use telekinesis to strongly push the airbeats to maneuver them into complicated directions.
Grace continued to repeat most of the information she had lectured, over and over. The smell of hospital sanitizer wafted. Han and the other youths slowly climbed into the incubators. Oxygen masks attached to their mouths, and their bodies submerged completely in water. Blinding dread filled all the youths' minds.
Kuro explained. Kijo furrowed his brows like he had been waiting for these words.
