Moment of Two Powerful Kombat Rivals

"Okay guys, I'm going to see All Might at Recovery Girl's office." Izuku said as he just left the locker room before his other male classmates.

"Just try and hurry back before Baraka eats your homework!" Kung Lao joked.

"Hey!" Baraka shouted in rage.

Izuku make his way to the nurse's office through the hallway hoping to see All Might there alone, he is not sure if Recovery Girl also knows the secret about One for All or even about Lord Liu Kang at all, he'll have to ask All Might about her when he sees him in the nurse's office.

"(Hmm, you know, I actually have been wondering about Lord Liu Kang if he ever fought any other beings. Maybe from other worlds!)" Izuku thought wondered.

But his wondering thoughts kept him from looking to where he was going and got him to bump into someone, with his face bounce off from a pair of big breasts, and he fell on his butt.

"Ow!" Izuku exclaimed.

"Oh, sorry about that! Are you hurt? Do you need to go to the hospital? No wait, it was just a little fall, so you don't need a hospital." A girl talked energetically and cheerfully.

"I'm fine, it doesn't really hurt that much. Thank you for your concern." Izuku said as he looks up and saw what appeared to be a beautiful young woman.

"I'm glad you're okay! My name is Nejire Hado, it's nice to meet one of my underclassmen!" Nejire introduced herself with a cute smile.

Nejire is a fair-skinned girl of average height with wide, curious eyes. Her upper eyelashes are long and thick, and her irises are a royal blue. Her hair is periwinkle, reaching down to her knees, twisting around itself at her waist, and curving inwards around her legs. She has side-swept bangs, tucked behind her ears on the right and hanging just over her eyes on the left, and two short clumps of hair on either side of her face, curved towards her face on the right and behind it, under her ear, on the left. She wears a waistcoat instead of the standard U.A. blazer with her school uniform. Breasts size: I-cup.

"Wow, so cute!" Izuku said softly, but Nejire heard that.

"Thank you, the way you say it suddenly makes me feel giddy for some reason!" Nejire giggled with her cheeks blushing.

"Wait, that wasn't I was… I mean I was thinking that you're, huh… I'm Izuku Midoriya!" Izuku revealed his name when he felt embarrassed about calling her cute out loud.

"Izuku Midoriya, that sounds like a cool name! But I feel like I heard it somewhere before." Nejire tried to remember where she heard that name before.

"Well, it was nice meeting you, Hado-Senpai, but I have to get going to see Recovery Girl." Izuku said.

"Hey, hey, there's no need to be formal with be about being called "Senpai" and all that. Just call me Nejire because we're friends now!" Nejire believed with a cute smile.

"Right, friends. Well, goodbye, Nejire!" Izuku said as he walks away.

"Okay, bye!" Nejire waved goodbye, watching the cute bunny boy go away.

"I swear I heard of that name before." Nejire said as she walks back to her classroom.

(Nurse's Office)

"Excuse me, is All Might here?" Izuku asked as he entered the room.

"Oh, Young Midoriya, glad you could make it." Toshinori greeted.

"Hello young man, nice to see you again." Recovery Girl smiled at the boy that she hasn't seen since the UA entrance exam.

"Wait! Is it really okay for her to see you like this?!" Izuku gasped, freaking out that Recovery Girl is seeing All Might in his weakest state, and they are acting like it's okay.

"All Might, you haven't told the boy yet about me?" Recovery Girl asked.

"I wanted him to get settle in with school first." Toshinori explained a little of not telling the boy.

"Not to worry, Young Midoriya. Recovery Girl is one of the very few people that not only knows about my weaken condition, but also about the secret power of One for All which is something other staff members don't know." Toshinori explained.

"You see, Midoriya. While most of the teachers only know about All Might's weak body, only trustful few including myself and the principal of UA knows his Quirk and yes, that also include knowing about him passing on your power to." Recovery Girl explained.

"Oh wow, that's a big kind of secret and the principal even knows about this too!" Izuku was shocked with amazement.

"So, was there a reason you wanted to have a talk with me?" Izuku asked.

"Yeah, I wanted to know why exactly you were holding yourself back in the training exercise with Young Bakugo." Toshinori revealed the reason, causing Izuku to flinch.

"You notice that?" Izuku asked.

"I trained you for most of the months and getting to know how you fight and all, so I saw how you weren't exactly giving the fight your all." Toshinori answered.

Izuku let out a sigh, thinking back on that battle training exercise when he and Katsuki were battling each other almost like to the death.

(Flashback)

The scene shows the battle between Izuku and Katsuki when they clash their legs at each other causing that small shockwave.

"When I was battling Kacchan, I felt like I want to test out his strength first to see how strong his power is compared to my own and he is indeed strong as expected." Izuku explained.

Izuku and Katsuki are shown doing their fighting trying to get the upper hand on each other, or that Izuku is still trying to test out more of Katsuki's power while pushing him back and hammering him down hard.

"I don't exactly know why I didn't go at full power on him, maybe it was because I wanted the fight to last longer or to see how far he can push himself. Either way, that fight sure was something else." Izuku commented.

The last scene shows Katsuki and Izuku were about to clash again until they heard the alarm sound that signal the end of the training exercise.

(Flashback End)

"I saw and felt what he was capable of, and there's no doubt that he's gonna grow stronger from this." Izuku said, knowing that Katsuki won't let a loss make him sit down for long.

"The feelings of rivals, I know that in others during my younger days." Recovery Girl recalled seeing some Pro Heroes being rivals to each other.

"And do you think Young Bakugo knows about holding back your strength?" Toshinori asked.

"He'd probably be furious, thinking I've been looking down on him like a fucking weakling throughout the whole match." Izuku feared.

"Oh boy, that's probably going to do some damage to him." Toshinori sighed.

"The best thing I could give is for you to go to him and tell him to become stronger to make you fight at full power. At least, that's how I see it." Toshinori advised.

"Kacchan probably won't listen, but I'll certainly give it a try." Izuku decided to go for it.

"Atta boy, and cognates on getting the hang of using One for All along with your Lightning-Fire Quirk. Making a lot of progress at such a fast pace." Toshinori smiled with a hand on Izuku's shoulder.

"Thank you, All Might." Izuku felt happy to get praise by his mentor/idol.

"Alright, I think that's all we need from you. You can head back to your classroom now." Recovery Girl excused Izuku to leave.

"Okay, have a nice day." Izuku said before walking out of the room, and then have a run in with one student.

"Oh, I'm sorry! I'm in your way, aren't I?" Izuku apologized.

"It's fine, I just came in. You're from the Mortal Kombat, Izuku Midoriya, right?" The green student asked, hoping he got the name right.

"That's me, and you're from Class 1-B." Izuku recognized the guy from the 1-B group.

"My name is Togaru Kamakiri." Togaru revealed his name.

Togaru is a tall, slender young man with pale yellow-green skin and a bright, fluffy green mohawk. His dark green eyes are pointed downwards to the center of his face, and two hooked blades jut out from either of his cheeks. He has no visible nose, and the shape of his head resembles that of a praying mantis with mandibles. He wears a large dark green rugged cloak with, with plain black trousers and three-toed boots. He has a mask around his eyes and a zigzag pattern on his shirt.

"Okay, it was nice meeting you." Izuku walked past him.

"Hold on for a second." Togaru said, getting Izuku to stop.

"About that fight between you and Bakugo, I'll say it was intense and maybe I'm starting to see what the teachers are saying that some heroes can't afford to hold themselves back in certain moments. At least that's how I see it." Togaru shared his thoughts on this hard lesson.

"Yeah, that class can be intense, but it's what I signed up for and I'm going to see it through to the end." Izuku is determined and walks away.

"That is one brave bunny." Togaru commented before entering Recovery Girl's office just as Toshinori got out of there.

(Later)

"You really don't have to come with me, you know." Izuku pointed out to Mileena as she is walking with him.

"But I want to spend more time with you." Mileena giggled and leans a little closer to him.

"(Why is my heart still beating so fast?!)" Izuku thought panicked with his face blushing so red, trying his best to keep himself calm.

They arrive at the door of Class 1-A and slide the door open with a surprise of Tsuyu with her back against them.

"Oh, Tsuyu!" Izuku was surprised a little.

"Hey there, Deku. Didn't expect a visit from you. Ribbit." Tsuyu greeted.

"Midoriya and Kirāfamirī, greetings. Is there something you two need from our class?" Tenya asked after greeting them.

"I was hoping to have a talk with Kacchan. Katsuki Bakugo." Izuku answered.

"Oh, I'm sorry, Deku. But you just miss him." Ochaco informed.

"Really? If he just left, then we would've seen him walking in the hallway." Mileena was surprised a little.

"We tried to stop him, but he wouldn't listen." Ochaco said.

"He looked really pissed off, probably from the battle training." Tsuyu guessed.

"I see, thank you for telling me. Mileena, this talk is just going be between me and Kacchan, so go back your sisters and Sheeva." Izuku said.

Mileena wanted to protest, but Izuku used his lightning power to speed away from the scene and off to find Katsuki.

"Oh man… I wish I could go that fast with my lightning." Denki said, feeling jealous.

Izuku make his own downstairs and found Katsuki just leaving the building, looking angrier on the inside.

"Kacchan! Wait up!" Izuku called out.

"What?" Kasuki stopped and turn around.

"(I haven't told anyone the secrets, about One for All and about Lord Liu Kang. Not even my mom.)" Izuku thought hopefully to be careful of what he will say.

Izuku took a deep breath and spoke to his children friend turned bully.

"I have to tell you something. Maybe then, you'll understand what's been going on." Izuku said before getting a deep breath.

"I wasn't hiding my Quirk from you. It came to me, strange the powers I have were gifts from two who believed in me. And I'm not going to tell you who they are if that's what you're wondering, so don't even try." Izuku mentioned, not realizing what exactly he just said.

Katsuki just stares with his eyes widened a little thinking this idiot is talking shit or something.

"I guess you could say it's like a pair of borrowed powers. I know what I'm saying may sound crazy, like it's something out of a comic book, but it's real. The thing is, I've only been using a fraction of one of the powers, and… I wasn't exactly fighting you at full power because I was worried about accidentally killing you." Izuku admitted.

"Maybe if our fight has gotten a little longer, I would used my full power to end it even though I'm still getting use to the idea of killing." Izuku felt a little shaken up but calmed himself.

"But know that I'm working really hard in making the two powers I have my own, and when we fight each other again, I promise to fight you with my full power when I master them to the max!" Izuku promised strongly.

After he finish talking, he saw that Katsuki is just looking at him with a weird and shock expression.

"(Oh crap, I hope I wasn't saying anything that exposes my Quirk! Plus, I only wanted to tell him that I wasn't tricking him!)" Izuku thought realized that he might've talked a little more than intended.

"How dumb do you think I am?" Katsuki asked making Izuku gasp a bit.

"You're saying like you're treating your Quirk like a borrowed power. Don't talk to me like I'm an idiot… you already made a fool outta me in that damn training exercise." Katsuki stated while looking down.

"Did you come here to rub it in? I lost and to make matters worse, it was to you. I came in first in the exam, but that's not enough." Katsuki said with one hand shaking a little.

"We both saw them, those other matches after ours… When I was watching that ice guy and the fire ninja guy, I realized I couldn't beat either of them in a head-on-head fight." Katsuki angered at himself, remembering watching the match with Shoto Todoroki freezing most of the building.

"It was also a foolish move to use that large scale attack as you said earlier." Momo's words echoed in his head.

"Crap! I even agreed with what that bimbo Might girlfriend of yours said. My attack was so stupid!" Katsuki admitted in angry.

"Damn it! Damn it! Damn it! Damn it!" Katsuki cursed at himself and clenches his fist.

"Enjoy that win, Deku. You won't get another!" Katsuki faced Izuku showing rage in his eyes and tears coming out too. But this isn't just any normal rage, it's rage with determination to learn from his loss to move forward.

"I'm just getting started! Got that?! I'm gonna end up the Number 1 Hero no matter what!" Katsuki declared before turning around and walking away.

Izuku looks at Katsuki's back seeing that he has made his own start of his journey to becoming a hero on his own, maybe he could be a Mortal Kombat hero of his own too. Looks like Izuku will need to train extra hard to make sure Katsuki doesn't get ahead of him too much.

"There you are!" All Might shouted as he suddenly zooms past Izuku and heading towards Katsuki.

"Bakugo! I found you!" All Might grabbed hold onto Katsuki's shoulders, despite panting a little.

"Just so you know, pride is an important attribute to have. But while you certainly have the abilities to become a pro hero, there's still plenty you have to learn!" All Might stated.

"Let go of me, All Might. Right now." Katsuki demanded softly.

All Might is confuse a little and looks down at Katsuki.

"Save your speeches. I'll be more famous than you, and I'll do it without your help." Katsuki made himself known to his idol.

"Uh… Right." All Might surprised to see that Katsuki is being himself as he lets go of the boy and let him walk off.

"(I guess he's already over it. Man, being a teacher is hard.)" All Might thought exclaimed a bit.

Unknown to the three on the ground and outside, some girls have been watching the scene from the second floor through the window.

"I wonder what was that all about?" Mina asked.

"A fated battle between rivals." Ochaco said.

"Oh, now that sounds intense." Mileena commented.

"Whatever Deku was saying, it looked like Bakugo really wanted to punch him." Tsuyu pointed out to what it looks like to her.

"It would seem that Katsuki may have finally start making his hero journey from this day onward." Kitana believed.

"I do hope for his sake, he'll tone down the anger shouting." Jade said.

"Childhood friends turned enemies!" Ochaco added while pressing her forehead onto the glass.

"Yes, they might even become the fiercest rivals in UA history." Sheeva called it as she sees it.

Izuku continued looking at Katsuki's back, seeing that this is his true start of a hero right now.

"(Kacchan's fuss has been lit. There's a fire under him. But that doesn't change what I have to do. I'll keep chasing after him and surpass him!)" Izuku thought determined to do his best too.

"Midoriya? What were you saying to Bakugo before I arrived so heroically?" All Might asked.

"Oh, huh, nothing special!" Izuku gasped, realizes that All Might is still here.

"Hmm, I'm so curious. Why don't you tell me all the juicy details?" All Might wanted to know what went down between them.

"Um, actually, I… kinda forgot." Izuku tried to pretend that he forgot, but it looked like All Might isn't budging.


KO a new chapter is done and hope you all enjoy it!

There were some moments about Izuku trying to tell Katsuki that he wasn't mocking him or anything, but it looks like Katsuki has done his own cheering up by promising to surpass him and beat him in their next fight and something tells me that it might be more fatally.
