Getting the angry might make them slip up a bit. That was what I was going for. It was a provocative stance and tone I was taking. All of them got very agitated with me. I could use that against them. They pressed in on me and glared. "Wanna run that shitty excuse by us again!?" one of them said. I shrugged my shoulders again. Looking at them, I smirked. "I already said it. You guys need to clean out your ears." I said. That was what set them off. The delinquents all went from aggressive to hostile. They attacked me and combat began. I was right in the middle of them all. It was not the best start, but I made due. I had my venom and my different forms. Only one of them was able to use mystical energy, so I had to focus on him first. He shot hot flames in my face. I was making sure to target him while dodging everyone else. I stunned him with a big bite and he fell to the floor. He looked terrified as his whole body went numb. Others did not know what was going on. I then beat him until I killed him. That instantly made 3 of them run away. 2 remained to fight me. They must have really cared for him.
He was dead on the floor. Murder was a very villainous act. This gave me some nice exp. along with the points for actually defeating him in battle. The other delinquents were angry in their attacks. I was now ready to give them the attention they deserved. I beat the shit out of them and then killed them when they were unconscious on the ground. I wanted all the points that I could get. Leveling up would only make me stronger and more of a threat when I encountered the real heroes. It was impossible for the sex pests to not have taken notice of this. 2 of them ran away. They were the cowards of that group. Then again, they were just regular high schoolers. If it was not normal for them to be scared at seeing death head on like this, they might be the real villains over here. I know that I would have ran if I were in their shoes. If I was actually friends with any of them, I would physically drag them away with me. It simply would not be worth it to die over some senseless shit like this. Especially since they were NPCs with only 1 life. Even with them running, there was still 4 of them ready to fight.
I did not actually have to kill them. A simple bite would do enough to paralyze them. I could then take any of them with me to drain. However, that halfway approach was not really villainous behavior. Once they were helpless on the ground, I killed them all. That was my right as the victor. The blue-eyes blond delinquent was still on the ground. He was still in too rough of a shape to move on his own power. I walked over and saw the damage. He was really fucked up. I was looming over him. He looked up at me in terror. I looked down at him and said "I can drain you like a battery. I can also kill you right here and now. One option will allow you to survive this. What one do you choose?" The choice was totally his. I was going to meet up with the Fire Dragon jock in a few hours. I did not need to save this random guy. Killing him and using the exp. to get closer to a new level up would serve me better. He grit his teeth at me. "I can't die yet. I have a mom and sister waiting on me! Do what you have to do! I'll never give up." he said. I could really respect that. I covered him in my ooze and kept it moving.
