sibility for any injuries that occur; no awards, rewards, or money are presented; and champions will be remembered and honored for all eternity.

”Oh? So I ’m an exception? ” Shishio asked.

”Yes. ” Tokugawa nodded and said, ”You might be the first fighter who asks me for money. ”

Shishio nodded and didn ’t say much.

”Still, why are you asking for money? It doesn ’t seem that you need money, right? You have a lot after all, especially when you have ransacked the Kengan Association before. ” Moreover, Tokugawa knew that Shishio had bet 500 million yen on his own match, and since Shishio had won that much, Shishio had won at least more than billions of yen!

Even though it was quite easy for Tokugawa to gather that amount of money, it was still a considerable amount of money.

”I don ’t want a small fry to gather in front of me, ” Shishio said simply.

Tokugawa nodded and understood his words since, unexpectedly, there were many stupid people in this world.

”You should know how stupid a martial artist is. ” Looking at Tokugawa, Shishio said, ”They want to prove themselves as the strongest, and they want to fight someone strong, so you should understand after I have won Agito Kanoh, there will be many people who will try to challenge me, right? If I don ’t set a requirement, then how many people are going to ask me for a fight? ” He didn ’t mind trouble, but he didn ’t want to face a stupid problem.

Tokugawa blushed in shame since he knew that he wasn ’t that much different from those stupid people that he had agreed with before. ”I ’m sorry. If you have something to ask more about, then you don ’t need to hesitate. ”

”You don ’t need to worry too much. ” Shishio ’s eyes turned sharp, and he said, ”Still, if they don ’t know what ’s good for them, then I don ’t mind turning them into a pellet on the Tokyo Bay. ”

Tokugawa had a shudder when he saw Shishio ’s eyes, and it was the eyes who didn ’t hesitate to kill someone!

”Shishio… ” Shiina held Shishio ’s hands worriedly.

”You don ’t need to worry, Mashiro. I was joking, ” Shishio said with a smile.

Shiina looked at Shishio for a moment before she leaned on his shoulder as she held his hand. She knew that he was good at acting, but unlike before, this time, she was here to support him.

Tokugawa looked at Shishio, then Shiina before he nodded. He had a feeling that if someone dared to do something on Shiina, then Shishio might wreck the entire Tokyo. Luckily, even though he also agreed that the martial artist was a stupid creature, they were respectable beings, and they probably wouldn ’t commit a crime.

Well, even if they did, Tokugawa had a feeling that they would die. He didn ’t doubt it and knew that Shishio would kill someone to protect his woman.

After that conversation, the trip turned quiet. Luckily, before long, they had arrived at the Tokyo Dome, and they didn ’t waste their time, so without hesitation, they entered the lift that led them into the Underground Arena.

As they arrived on the bottom floor, Shiina, who was walking right next to Shishio, could feel the pressure that was coming from the arena, and as they arrived at the Underground Arena, she could feel an intense feeling that made her a bit overwhelmed but when Shishio held her, she felt serene, warmth, and a secure feeling.

”Are you alright, Mashiro? ”

”Um. ” Shiina nodded with a gentle smile.

”Tell me if you don ’t feel well, ”

”Um. ”

They arrived at the Underground Arena and stepped into the octagonal arena.

Shiina couldn ’t describe her feelings since it was her first time to see this place, but if she had to give an example, she felt that she was watching a bloody battlefield right in front of her. She could also imagine many people were fighting to gain their honor and pride so they would be known as the strongest.

”Welcome to the Underground Arena, ” Tokugawa said with a smile, showing how proud he was at this place.

Shishio looked at the surrounding area, and it was empty. He then looked at the sand ground and grasped it with his hand. Not only sand, but there were teeth and nails mixed on it. As for his feelings, there was nothing much really since, in his mind, the Underground Arena was just a place for someone to fight. There was no special meaning, but since there were thousands of fights that had happened in this place, it might give a different kind of sense.

It was like when a dark and abandoned house would give anyone a sense of horror. This place would be a sense of chill to anyone who saw it, but not for Shishio.

Shishio grasped the sand that was mixed teeth and nails, causing a cracking sound, before he threw them from his palm.

”… ”

Shiina and Tokugawa were dumbfounded when they saw the sand that Shishio held had become dust, but more importantly, they had never seen someone who was so harmonious when he was standing in this place.

When Shishio stood in this place, it felt like he was the ruler of this place.

Tokugawa gulped and asked, ”Shishio-kun, can I ask you something? ”

”What ’s wrong? ”

”What is your dream? ”

”Dream? ” Shishio raised his eyebrow.

”That ’s right. ” Tokugawa nodded and said, ”For the martial arts who come to this place, they have a dream to become the strongest fighter, but what about you? ”

”Is it necessary to answer? ”

”No, but I just want to know. For you, someone who is so talented with everything, what do you seek in this world? What do you want to do? ” Tokugawa asked with an eagerness.

Shiina also didn ’t say anything and was waiting for Shishio ’s answer in anticipation too.

Tokugawa and Shiina weren ’t sure why they felt this feeling, but they just wanted to know what he wanted to and what he wanted to achieve in this life.

Shishio thought for a moment and said, ”I ’m looking for a way to live forever. ”

”…. ” Shiina and Tokugawa.

Tokugawa was dumbfounded and asked, ”Yo – You want to achieve immortality? ”

Immortality wasn ’t something uncommon, or rather, a lot of emperors in history and even Tokugawa ’s predecessors also sought a way to become immortal so they could live forever. Even some wealthy people were using their money to research a method to live forever, which was why Tokugawa was dumbfounded when he heard that Shishio ’s dream was to become immortal.

”Nay, I don ’t mean that kind of immortality. Literal immortality will get boring fast. ”

His momentum started to change, and everything seemed to bow down at him from the air, the building, everything seemed to bow down by sheer of his presence.

”I ’ll perform feats to shake the Earth and Heavens! Then, my name will pass down through the generations and become legendary. Until they ’re telling bedtime stories about me! The name ”Oga Shishio ” will live forever! My image, my words! They ’ll paint pictures and pen tales far into the future and beyond! That is true immortality!! ”

Those words seemed like a joke if other people told them, but in Shishio ’s mouth, it felt like a declaration. This declaration would tell everyone that he would make a name in history, and they felt that Shishio would really be able to do it.

As for Shiina, who heard it, she wanted to go home now and have a child with him.

As for Tokugawa, he lamented that he didn ’t have a cute daughter who he could betroth with Shishio.

As for Shishio, he was just joking since his inner ”Chuunibyou ” wanted to act, but he didn ’t expect that both Shiina and Tokugawa would react like this, which made him helpless. He looked at both of them and wondered what would happen if he said, ”I was kidding. ”

”….. ”

Shishio was sure that both of them would be speechless.
