[U Eijiro POV]
He barely registered the words that spilled out of the youngest Aizawa female, he took a deep breath. He didn’t want to be the cause of what was going to be a very big argument, but he also didn’t want to lie to Scarlet. Rubbing his neck he turned his attention to this ‘Altair’ person, why did he look so familiar and yet not at all? Knowing that Scarlet was expecting an answer he spoke cautiously.
[#8b8974 “There was a system malfunction, the exercise went horribly wrong and honestly I’m just glad that no one died. You did very well, and the scores have you ahead by 15 points, Katsai is right after you. Now, I don’t mean to duck out but I really need to go see Eureka. She needs me.”] He paused before adding on quickly.
[#8b8974 “Katsai is in the next tent over, in the ICU tent. He’ll be ok. He’s actually probably recovered. I am not sure about Eureka. Now please. If you will excuse me.”] he stepped past Altair and sped ran to the only place he could think of, that could hold Eureka in a stable condition whilst her quirk continued to go off without any concerns for her own body or mind.

[U Altair POV]
[#7bf9c5 “He’s covering for someone. This wasn’t an accident.”] he rolled his eyes, reaching for his sunglasses, he placed them on his tired jet-lagged eyes. [#7bf9c5 “Not to be a liar, he just doesn’t want to get involved with anything that might happen. Now let’s go see my best friend.”]
Altair began to walk away, there were so many people running about holding medical supplies or leading students with various injuries to other parts of the makeshift hospital. Turning his head he looked over his shoulder. [#7bf9c5 “Hey, you coming or what?”]
[U Katsai POV]
He zipped his boots up, before picking up the towel again and running it through his hair, it didn’t matter right now if his hair was spiked up. He needed to see his twin sister and Scarlet. Hearing someone move the plastic privacy curtain aside he snapped [#fbd3b1 “What the fuck do you want now, I am not getting back in the tub. My temperature is completely fine. Let me go before I blast you and this makeshift hospital into space.”] [#7bf9c5 “Is that any way to address your best friend?”] the voice registered, he dropped the towel.

[#7bf9c5 “I’m here to see Katsai, any idea where he could be?”] he asked one of the nurses who seemed to be walking through the tent with a clipboard in hand [b “He’s in the very last tent to the left.”] [#7bf9c5 “Thank you.”] careful not to crash or bump into anyone else, he manovuered his way through. [#549278 [I Just how badly hurt are you… Please be alright and not in some coma]].
[U Katsai POV]
His jaw dropped, Altair removed his facial mask and his sun glasses before standing aside to let Scarlet through, Katsai was relieved to see Scarlet was alright - albeit bandaged up and looking a little bruised. However most of his was stunned into silence at the sight of his best friend of all people showing up.
[#7bf9c5 “Did you become deaf falling down that hole or something? Water still in your ears?”] [#fbd3b1 “I thought you said, once upon a time that you. Altair Todoroki would never step back into Tokyo, let alone Japan. What the hell are you doing here?”] [#7bf9c5 “Hug”]
Altair gestured towards Scarlet, taking his cue without much more need to be pushed, Katsai instinctively wrapped his arms around Scarlet, squeezing her tight. His heart felt like it was about to jump out of his chest, but it was slowing down…
[#fbd3b1 “Are you ok?”] he stepped back and examined Scarlet head to toe [#fbd3b1 “No serious injuries right? No permanent damage?”] the words spilled out of his mouth before he found himself crushing Scarlet in another hug. [#fbd3b1 “Thank God you’re safe and alive. I am so sorry for not being able to save you,”]

[U Eureka POV]
She could no longer scream, she fell onto the floor again her muscles twitching, every part of her hurt and she didn’t know how to stop the pain. She rolled over trying to curl herself up - only to send another round of electrical explosions into the padded wall adjacent to her. Why wouldn’t her quirk deactivate? Why was it going so haywire? She wanted to be hugged and to be comforted, but in this state anyone with a pulse would be killed going near her.
[#cfc354 [I I… I am a freak, why won’t my body relax and heal. Something is desperately wrong with me. I need help! I am in so much pain, I just want it to be stopped. Someone help me!]]

[#8b8974 “So she was hit with something? Like a bullet of some kind?”] he was trying to understand Recova’s words. In the palm of her hand was a green coloured shaped bullet. Or it was green before it had entered Eureka’s body and left what could only be the reaction she was currently having. [#8b8974 “And nothing can be done?”]
[b “Not for now at least, once Eraser Head is here. He can erase her quirk for a moment, it will give us the time we need to go in and check her vitals and what not. But once Eraser head leaves the room she will return to the unstable state she is now. The bullet is the exact opposite of the one that Overhaul made using Eri Aizawa’s blood, so many decades ago.”]
The wind left his lungs, he found himself having to sit, the emptied bullet was placed in hand, Recova gave him a sympathic look before looking out of the glass, the glass was the only thing separating them from Eureka’s Quirk going off. He held back a sob. Eureka was not his biological daughter but she could have been if things were different. He listened as Recova left the room to give him a moment.

He wiped his tears away, stumbling towards the window he fell to his knees and placed a hand upon the glass, Eureka was strong; he knew that but how would this affect the young future pro-hero? [#8b8974 “I am so sorry, I wasn’t there to protect you. I failed you as a father.”] he wanted to punch the glass.
[#8b8974 “Why Eureka?”] he asked aloud as someone stepped into the room, he wiped the tears away and lifted his head to see Ground Zero, arms crossed examining the situation. [#5a4302 “They misfired and mistook Eureka for someone else. The intended target was Scarlet. Eureka doing what she did. Saved Scarlet’s life.”]
