A Powerful Secret Book 2

What’s the issue this time?

Why is that even a question? The issues should be pretty clear.

Whoever said that Ryo wasn’t going to face any punishment for having another ability outburst again… was lying. Aside from the emotional punishment — loneliness, stress, guilt, grief — having jail time in Cerbilis, the prison created for superhumans, is only worse. And he doesn’t even get better or figure out how to manage his damn power in the duration of time he spends over there — which, by the way, is constantly changing. He’s landed with a year in prison, and then it gets cut down to six months with a parole sentence.

However, he figures that he deserves more than that.

My fault, my mess. I’m the monster here, so am I not getting punished more for it?

On the flipside, he was promised to “reform” during his prison sentence and “get better” as time went on.

Yeah. That’s not happening at all.

Once he gets out for his parole sentence, though… things quickly take a sharp, abrupt turn, and he’s led to somewhere unexpected.

Kazu Sachihiro —-  an innocent and almost failure-less (almost)person, thank you very much — is stuck, still wondering about his father, Naozumi Sachihiro. Every day feels like a search for him, and nothing comes out of it. The pressure just gets worse, but he doesn’t want to express it. He’s never failed so many times before — and he’s not supposed to.

But I am failing. So many failed attempts. That makesme a failure.

And lastly…

The Paranormal Fighting Alliance — or PFA — has been hidden long enough, even when superhumans were exposed, but there’s no hiding now. Everyone’s got eyes on them, waiting to see if they’re a good organization or not. And so far… there’s, well, mostly disapproval.

The spotlight’s only more pressuring as the Alliance has to deal with a new blossoming issue.

That issue, you ask?

Having their members going missing.

A/N:Second book in the APS series. You should… well, you should probably read the first, but that was probably pretty obvious. Anywho, this might be a shorter book than B1 but I’m hoping it packs a punch.

[CW] ⚠️ Contains violence, language, and (a bit) of gore.

A Powerful Secret Book 1

In Ota City, Japan, in a place filled with normal people, superhumans….

…are hidden.

It’s not like they have a choice. Ryo Haruki wishes they did, though. Fiction always showed superhumans as these tough villain-defeating heroes. Yet this is how superhumans reallyhave to be. In the real world, you can’t show your powers in the fear that the government would run tests on you, and then you could be exploited or used in some way. That’s just how it is.

It’s necessary, of course, but frustrating as all living hell.

On top of that, his power is strange and is definitely something that puts him at risk of exposure. Who knew something as simple as telekinesis would act up at the slightest twinge of annoyance? And if that anger gets bad enough….oh dear. That’s caused mess in the past. He’s never even trying to use his ability when he was angry, yet the consequences of his overreactive ability have been…severe, in a couple cases, to say the least.

Maybe he wouldn’t be the best hero.

Shizuka Anzu, Ryo’s friend, can’t even use her power at home. The Aiko family is better than her cruel father and sort-of-messed-up family, but with her being the only superhuman, she’s heavily restricted and gets lonely from time to time being the only one with a power. Sure, being a superhuman makes her feel a little more special amidst the hate of high-school bullies and trauma, but surely only knowing herself and Ryo as the only two people with powers couldn’t be fun all the time.

Two sheltered superhumans — both unknown and unknowing of their own selves — expose their kind in a life-or-death situation.

In exchange for giving away their secret, they get to know about the others. While they should’ve been more focused on the world around them, they stumble upon more superhumans, and more secrets their own kind has.

That sounds nice — it’s a good distraction from the chaos of the world — but, well…

…things just tumble downhill fast.

A/N:APS Book One, as you can probably tell, is the first book out of a four (or five, maybe) series. This series is sort of just a project to challenge myself to actually finish something, and it's supposed to serve as a way for me to learn and improve with writing. Looking back now, this first book might not have been penned that well, but I've learned from then and I can hopefully improve. Still, any constructive feedback is welcome. Thank you.

Contains violence and mild language.
