52 Finding The Way Ou
************ MC's POV ************
Seeing the rubbles fall out of the giant hole, I try to move in an attempt to save her.
But my brows furrowed and my face turned dark as the realisation struck me.
' I am not fast enough '
'I can't make it in time'
At this moment, I didn't know why? But the face of that blonde hair girl appeared in my mind.
The scene where I promised her to save her friend kept repeating in my mind.
\" Max! \", Suddenly I hear Axle yell and I see him stretching his hand towards me.
I look at him and he replies with decisiveness in his eyes, \" Throw me \".
\" What!\", I couldn't believe him.
If I messed up, both of them would be buried under the rubbles.
As if hearing my inner voice, he said, \" Just throw me. I trust you.\"
Bastard, he is still trying to act cool.
\" Fine don't blame me if you get killed.\", I said with a laugh before gripping his hands tightly.
\" Like you would let me be killed \", He speaks as I let my back touch his chest positioning myself for a shoulder throw.
I didn't have any experience with these techniques. But I have seen it before.
I let myself get a strong footing before using the strength from the very bottom of my body and letting it flow right into my arms.
I sent him flying with all my strength.
\" Crash! \"
And at the next moment, the rubble crashed sending all the water into the air.
It all happened within a few seconds.
\" Ahhh!!!\", the girls screamed seeing the scene while I made a dash toward it.
\" Axle \"
\" Axle! \"
But the lack of response made me tense.
\" I...am..alive \", Finally I hear his voice.
As I quickly moved in the direction of the voice, I saw Lisa getting up. She was at least a meter away from the spot of the rubble.
Her expression was complicated and she rushed towards the rubble as soon as she got up.
I too began turning my head and finally, my eyes found him in the corner.
But as I moved to pick him up, my eyes landed on his leg.
A rod had found its way into his legs. It had pierced his calf from the back and had come out from the shinbone from the front.
It was bleeding terribly and yet this idiot was smiling and giving me a thumbs up.
I walked in front of him and kneeled down planning to tear the lower part of his trouser to get the rod out.
\" Stop watching Animes, or you will die one day while trying to act cool.\", I say as I rip the part of his pants.
\" It will be worth it if it's a heroic death.\", He replies as the pain starts to affect his expression.
\" Splash! \"
Lisa finally arrived after a few seconds while kicking the water in her way.
\" Is he all right?\", I could hear her voice behind my back.
\" Do you have eyes? \", how could I speak to her properly. Wasn't this all her fault to begin with.
I had already decided to kick her if she dared to argue with me at this moment.
And luckily she didn't.
\" I am about to pull the rod out \", I give Axle a heads up and he nods.
By this time, everyone had already gathered by our side. Everyone had a worry on their faces.
\" Shnk!\", I pulled it out.
\" Umhh!!\", Axle gritted his teeth and refused to let out a scream.
But as I pulled out the rod, his blood started to flow out like a stream.
I hurriedly put one of my hands on his wound trying to slow down the flow of blood while stretching out my other hand toward my back.
\" Quick anyone, tear a piece of their cloth.\"
If the wound was small, I could have just used Vital Arts to stop the flow of blood. But it was too big for me.
\" Rip!!\", the sound of a cloth tearing apart could be heard and I finally received a cloth in my hand.
I could see Axle's face, it wasn't looking good. Even if I didn't have medical knowledge. I could still tell that he needed to get treated by a doctor soon or it won't be good.
\" I am done, can you get up \", I asked him.
\" Yeah, I can \", He stood up and I too got back on my feet.
It was only at this moment did we notice something.
Since one of the girls tore a piece of clothing from their dress, it was obvious that we could tell who it was from a glance.
But I never expected that girl to do it.
Yes, it was Lisa.
She still had that complicated look on her face.
Don't tell me it was the hero saving a beauty.
But on second thought, it wasn't possible between them.
And I would definitely stop Axle for falling for this b*tch.
\" I will take the lead. Lisa and Axle will stay in the back, while the girls would be in the middle \".
With that, I took the layout of the area to see our way out.
\" Ok, let's move \".
But as we walked a few steps, Axle staggered. He lost the strength in his legs and his knees bent.
But as he was about to fall, the person beside him caught Axle.
It was Lisa.
I couldn't believe my eyes as I saw Lisa support Axle by his shoulder. Don't tell me she really changed.
But, very soon my misunderstanding got cleared as I could clearly hear her whisper to Axle.
\" Don't get any wrong ideas. I am just repaying the favor.\"
Hearing her, Axle too replied, \" You are the last person I want to have a misunderstanding with.\"
And we continued to walk trying to find our way out.
