Hiems blinked. He blinked again. He obviously missed Iida's warning and almost let go of Todoroki, breaking the cavalry. Luckily he didn't. He gripped hard and he stayed calm. Still, his lazy empty gaze was dumbfounded for a moment as Iida activated a momentary super speed with his engines. 'Well, that was fast.' He thought to himself. Then a cheer erupted from the audience. Hiems didn't bother to look at the scoreboard, but knew something happened. Probably something about Todoroki taking that headband.
Midoriya froze in confusion for a moment. What was that? He never knew they had a way of moving so fast. He was completely dumbfounded, took off guard by a secret weapon that one of the cavalry had hidden up their sleeve. And the only headband he had was in their hand.
"THIRTY SECONDS LEFT!"
Present Mic yelled out in just the right timing. Midoriya pushed himself to recover fast. They were locked in the ice walls with each other. He had no headband left to defend. The only choice was to attack and reclaim the headband, no matter what. For once he had to use his quirk. Midoriya gulped as he stared into Todoroki. This was a risky plan.
"...we should try attacking, take back the headband. It wil be one chance for us."
