《Heads Of Cerberus (Isekai)》[Heads Of Cerberus (Isekai)] - Chapter 2: Changes
In the suns brightness, above the street. The sounds of the soft wind echoed throughout the landscape as the trees by the roadside shook. The only individuals using the road were students traveling to high school; there were no vehicles there. At this school, Gideon Brangwen was a senior student.
As students chatted on the route, laughter could be heard.
At the edge of the road, Gideon strolled. He was brushing a few of the long bangs that he had grown to the tip of his high-bridged, sharp nose. He was moving with tremendous caution, his eyes darting all over.
He was concerned about the way the other students were acting around him. In contrast to before, when they had little to no interest in him, this time they avoided approaching him or even looking at him, as if he had a contagious illness. The other sides of the street were also crowded with students. All but the direction he was moving. He was the only one walking, his side was empty.
Gideon simply let out a breath in response to his finding.
”Get out of the way! ”
The absence of sound was, however, shattered when a number of voices were heard all along the street. In addition to the whines of students who were struck by persons running away from the school in the opposite direction. Five students, all guys of the same age as Gideon, emerged from the crowd, but their bodies and faces bore the scars of the numerous battles they had taken part in. They were referred to as the schools bosses. They stopped right in front of Gideon, their eyes blazing with rage and violence.
The one in the middle turned to Gideon and said, ”Weve been waiting for you. ” He was the tallest and strongest of the group of five.

Surprised, Gideon turned to look behind him to see if anyone was there. However, he didn see anyone or anything that the people in front of him were referring to. He feigned a giggle and then scratched the back of his head as he realized he was alone. ”Carlos, right? Ha, thats strange, you seem to be speaking directly to me. ”
Carlos came up to him. Carlos threatening demeanor softened as he laughed and rested his muscular arm on Gideons shoulders. ”Whats the deal with that response, Boss Hunter? Your conversation with your father had to be gruesome for you to end up acting like that the next day; thats not how the schools king should act. ”
Then the four other people began to chuckle.
The one with long, brown hair and a scar on his nose said, ”Boss Hunter is just kidding you. ”
”You know him, he just loves to mess with us. ” Said the skinhead.
”But, man! I still can believe we managed to overthrow that gang yesterday; even though Boss Hunter received a chest injury, we are now the rulers of this district! ” The one with the red, spiky hair exclaimed.
”What Boss Hunter got was just a scratch, and don forget that more people are joining our gang now, and we did it all in just one week under Boss Hunters leadership. ” The shortest but most muscular of the group announced excitedly.
After hearing what he believed were absurd things spoken by the five
