When the ambulance stopped in front of the juvenile reformatory in School District 10, Accelerator, Motoharu Tsuchimikado, Mitsuki Unabara, and Awaki Musujime burst out of its back door.

From there, they couldn’t spy the actual reformatory. Walls almost fifteen meters high were in the way. But even from where they stood, the sickening scent of smoke reached their noses.

“…!!”

Musujime grated her teeth and immediately tried to dash in through the already destroyed gate, but Accelerator, leaning on his ­modern-­design cane, frowned.

“Does this seem odd to anyone else?”

“You noticed, too?” said Tsuchimikado slowly, pulling a military pistol from his inside pocket. “No noise. If Block is in combat with the reformatory guards, we should be able to hear gunfire, at least.”

The four passed through the gate, which also served as a checkpoint. Beyond it was a roundabout for police wagons. As they stepped toward the edge of the asphalt surface, twenty meters long per side, Accelerator felt a slight pain around his temples.

“…The IDF jammers, eh?”

He looked up and saw a net of thin wires drawn over the entire grounds, from one ­fifteen-­meter-­high wall to another. Were they emitting special EM waves or something?

They were probably causing espers to interfere with their own abilities by throwing their involuntary diffusion fields into chaos. He’d never heard of ­Anti-­Skill using them, so they likely needed immense electricity or processing instruments, making them usable only in limited spaces like this one.

Doesn’t look like I’m having a problem walking, at least…But I should probably stay away from ability usage mode, since it uses proxy calculations.

Still, Accelerator wasn’t under the impression he couldn’t use his ability here. They seemed to be stimulating abilities to run out of control instead, so he couldn’t use it carelessly. His arms and legs could fly off if he got caught in his own ability.

They’re using a bunch of other machines, too. Purposely getting them to interfere with one another.

If he could figure out what sort of devices they were manipulating, he might have been able to find a countermeasure, but there, Accelerator stopped thinking. He’d found the reason the whole reformatory seemed odd.

Corpses.

Probably the mercenaries Block had called in from outside. Close to fifty big men were lying in pools of their own blood. Some were shot through the temple, others were missing parts of their heads from close-­range shotgun blasts, and yet others had their necks cut with knives…There were many causes for death, but all had one thing in common.

“They…All of them were ended by their own weapons…,” muttered Tsuchimikado.

“Suicide…? No, wait, this ­is—”

Unabara didn’t get to finish.

“I’ve found you.”

They heard a voice behind them.

Accelerator turned around to see a girl standing in the destroyed gate. A small girl, wearing a red ­sailor-­style suit that looked like a school uniform. But there was a glint in her eyes. She wasn’t just any killer.

“If you’re here, does that make you one of Block’s shitheads?”

“No, I’m with Member. I was only using them, though, so I don’t care who I belong to,” she answered coolly.
