My Werewolf System - chapter-75-the-rugby-match-2
Gary had already been doing well in the game without having to use
charging heart. This was mostly due to the power of the moon; otherwise,
he would have still fallen slightly behind the athletic students, but now
with Charging heart active and the power of the moon Gary was at his
Since Blake had luckily managed to score a point, it was time for
Westbridge to kick off the ball again.
“œCoach Root, let me do it.” Gary raised his hand asking for
With how things were going, Mr Root didnâ€™t really care. It was obvious
that Eton High would put more people on Blake now, leaving virtually no
chance for a comeback. Blake or Gil didnâ€™t voice any objection so the
teacher just allowed the high schooler to do as he wished.
Getting ready, Gary dropped the ball, and booted it as hard as he could.
He had powered all of his frustration into kicking the ball and didnâ€™t
hold back. The ball went high in the air, and further than any of
Blakeâ€™s kicks and down so far, it had gone so far some people even
thought it was going to hit the try line. In the end, it was a few meters
Sren had run all the way to the back but even with his speed he was
unable to get back in time to catch it.
â€œDid you see that kick? I donâ€™t even think Iâ€™ve seen that in
professional Rugby games.â€ One of the parents commented.
â€œWell, itâ€™s a smaller pitch, but that was definitely an impressive
kick.â€ Another added.
What some of the players at Eton high noticed and same with Blake was the
kick Gary had done, had no signs of proper technique, the ball
shouldnâ€™t have gone that far. Meaning he had done it all with raw power.
â€کGaryâ€¦Iâ€™m thankful that youâ€™re on our team, but the improvement
you have had, what happened to you?â€™ Blake thought.
The game went on and Blake surprisingly managed to snatch the ball off of
one of their players, but just as Mr Root feared, after that the team had
him surrounded. They knew there was no need to focus on the other
players, and they were blocking his path from passing to Gil. Gary,
seeing this had suddenly appeared out of nowhere.
â€کYou can do it, right? Then go show them what you got!â€™ Blake chucked
the ball right though the gap towards Gary, and after catching the ball
like a rocket, he was off.
Gary just ran straight. He knew better than to try and use any fancy
footwork that he wasnâ€™t used to, to evade the opposition. One of the
Eton High players went for the tackle, but the ball carrier just
continued running even when his legs were touched. Gary was like a train
on tracks, not stopping in the least. Once he got past the first two it
was smooth sailing until he reached the try line to score a point.
â€œI did it! I scored a point!â€ Gary yelled out in triumph. He then
looked over the stands and enjoyed the feeling of being cheered on,
especially since the one person he was looking out for gave him a
â€œDid you see that?â€ Leng asked his brother. â€œSince when did
Westbridge have someone like him? Was he holding back on us the entire
â€œOf course I saw that.â€ Sren answered in frustration. It was one
thing to lose a point to the star player, but this was something
completely unexpected and he didnâ€™t like that. â€œNo idea whatâ€™s
gotten into that guy. According to our intel, he was supposed to be a
benchwarmer, just like the rest of them. Now it seems like heâ€™s their
star player. Letâ€™s just put more people on him!â€
The game continued, but that wasnâ€™t the only point Gary ended up
scoring. With his sheer power he was able to force his way through nearly
each time. At some point some of the players on Blake were also put on
him. Using that opportunity, he would pass the ball, allowing the real
star player to score.
When the referee called for a break, the score was 7 – 4 for the home
team. They had managed to nearly double the otherâ€™s points, but there
was still a problem. Despite his boost, he was unable to catch up to
either of the twins. Whatâ€™s more, his Energy had decreased sharply,
which would make it risky to use Charging Heart again.
During the break, Tom approached Gary. â€œâ€™m guessing your sudden boost
in performance is due to the moon. Do you feel any different? Any
suddenâ€¦ urges?â€ Tom asked carefully.
Gary smiled back as he went back into position. â€œJust a healthy desire
to win this match!â€
Both teams went into position. Gary noticed the twins had an evil smile
on their faces. In those few minutes, they had devised a strategy for how
to deal with the â€کannoying green headâ€™.
After the kick, Gary was in possession of the ball, yet five people had
him surrounded. It was the required number of people to stop him without
making it too easy for Blake to score. Already used to this, Gary had no
choice but to pass the ball to the closest person, Tom.
They had done this a few times already and his best friend would usually
just pass it onto the next person, but as soon as the ball left Garyâ€™s
finger tips, two redheaded students could be seen running through.
Before he had any chance to react, they both crushed Tom banging into him
from either side, he fell to the ground in seconds, but that wasnâ€™t the
end of it. Turning around, both of them with their studded metal boots
stepped on Tomâ€™s hand. It had gone right through his palm causing him
â€œWhy the f*ck is it always me?!â€ Tom screamed in pain.
In almost an instant, Gary leapt from where he was, landing right on top
of Sren, pinning him to the ground.
â€œIâ€™ll kill you!â€
