The match continued and the ball was in Teiko's possession, Akashi dribbled the ball forward, in front of him, Kenma who had his back hunched like a cat ready to jump at any moment, Akashi then dribbled forward, he first went between the legs then when Kenma went for the steal, Akashi spun around.
Kenma lost his balance falling into the ground, he was then met with Kuro appearing in front of him, in a smooth move, Akashi faked to the right then dashed towards the left, Kuro then lost his balance and fell to his butt.
Akashi was about to pass the ball but looking at the man in front of him who appeared, he didn't dare to pass the ball, it felt like he was being suppressed, Akashi gritted his teeth and shot the ball, Tanaka who was in front of Akashi didn't go for the block and just let him be.
The Teiko scored another point slowly chasing up to Ousai's score, Kenma dribbled the ball his expression changed, he wasn't smiling anymore but his eyes were wide open, Akashi swore he saw a silhouette of a cat behind Kenma but it only appeared in a moment not really noticeable.
But with Akashi's eyes, he was able to see these minute details as his eyes were no different from looking through a clear telescope, but Akashi ignored it as a hallucination he had from facing Tanaka earlier, he could not help but grab his shirt from frustration as he remembered how scared he was when facing Tanaka.
Kenma dribbled the ball forward his eyes never left Akashi, the moment he stepped in Akashi's range, Akashi also moved to steal the ball from his hands.
The ball was tipped away from Kenma's hands and flew to the air, Aomine who seemed to be waiting since earlier moved at a very fast speed and caught the ball but before he even got to move, he was met with Kuro who was guarding him.
Aomine tried to do his street basketball moves to get past Kuro but Kuro was able to follow him for a moment before Kuro was left behind by Aomine.
Aomine scored with a finger roll giving them another score, but Aomine was not happy, he turned his head towards Kuro with surprise, 'he was able to keep up with me' thinking of how he was almost blocked from moving forward earlier, this made Aomine think differently of Kuro.
Akashi didn't react much when they scored but his eyes were fixated on Kenma, he was sure, Kenma reacted when he went for the steal earlier, he was sure he was about to steal the ball away from Kenma's hands, not just tip away, Akashi could not help but look at Kenma with interest.
The match continued and after Kenma passed the ball towards Sora halfcourt who passed the ball to Akagi under the rim getting them a score, Kenma took a deep breath as he looked at Akashi who was moving forward.
It was just a moment but like a cat pouncing on its prey, Kenma appeared in front of Akashi with his hand already near the ball, Akashi's body jolted from the shock and he immediately passed the ball to Nijimura who was by the left side of the 3 point line.
Nijimura caught the ball, he was being defended by Sora, he had an advantage over height, so he wanted to have an easy 3 point score but to his surprise, Kuro was just behind Sora waiting for him.
Nijimura immediately changed his form and passed the ball towards the right side where Midorima caught the ball, Midorima got into his shooting form and jumped for the shot, but just as the ball left his hand, Kuro appeared flying in front of him extending his hand high up in the sky, "What is he doing here!?" Midorima exclaimed from shock, Kuro was on the left side very far from him! but why is he here!?
Kuro smacked the ball mid-air and it flew out of bounds, everyone looked at Kuro shocked, everyone roared in amazement as they saw how Kuro seemed to fly, as for the girls from Ousai Academy, all of them cheered loudly as they saw this, Kuro after all was handsome and also had his own female fans.
Kuro was panting as he landed on the ground, but when he looked up, sparks of lightning appeared in his eyes, this made Tanaka smile, "He finally entered the zone! damn, I didn't expect that!" Tanaka exclaimed, his purpose was only stirring the full potential of Kuro in this game but to think he was pushed towards the zone.
As expected of Teiko! wait, that sounds wrong, as expected of Tanaka's teachings!
The only one left is Kenma, once he entered the zone then their team will be truly legendary, everyone knows this, there has never been a team that was as powerful as the Ousai, once they all attained zone, they will be unstoppable unless the Teiko also enters zone then there may be a chance of them defeating Ousai.
That is if they ruled out Tanaka, the game continued and the Teiko was able to score by passing the ball towards Murasakibara who was able to score with a hook shot, he lost power against Akagi so that was his only option to score.
The ball was brought by Kenma who dribbled the ball forward, his eyes had greatly changed, there may not be any sparks of lightning appearing on it but his pupils had greatly compressed turning into real cat eyes.
Kenma dribbled forward and was immediately met by Akashi who took this chance to move forward to catch Kenma in surprise, but just as Akashi was about to steal the ball away from Kenma's hands, Kenma spun his body avoiding Akashi.
Akashi also reacted when he saw this and immediately went for the tip from behind but he only saw Kenma dribbled the ball between his legs avoiding his steal attempt once again.
Kenma then suddenly turned his body around and faced Akashi, both eyes stared at each other, cat-like eyes while the other had dragon-like eyes.(A/N: Akashi's eyes looked like a dragon I'm not wrong)
