xxxxxx The mountains of Kou were a place unlike anything Diana had ever seen before. It hadn't been long since she was on her own. She was spending the early stretches of the morning climbing the rigid slopes of the mountain only to head into the sparse forest below by noon. There was so much to explore that she couldn't quite wrap her head around it all. Pluto trailed silently behind her, keeping his distance to do some wandering on his own. Diana gripped the hilt of the sword at her waist and drew it. She held it up straight in front of her to examine it. The weapon had been gifted to her by one of the people she befriended on the trip to Kou. But she never quite had the time to really check it out. Diana tried slicing the sword around a bit to get a feel for it. Her technique was sloppy-- amateur at best.  For a few minutes she constantly kept changing her stance and even the way she held it but none of it felt quite right.

xxxxxx Frustrated, she stabbed the sword in the ground. "Tch," she scoffed, placing her hands on her hips. Diana wondered what her father would say to her in this instance. Though he had never thought of teaching her swordsmanship. It was times like now she wished she had taken up combat lessons from Mars. But all those people she was thinking of were miles away. It made her a bit melancholy to even ponder on it. Pluto lifted his head, sensing a presence nearby but he knew better than to growl. After the six months spent traveling her companion had much more self control than he used to. Diana stretched her arms and picked the sword back up out of the ground before attempting to practice again.

Climbing to the mountain surely was tiring even for a trained swordsman like Tenma, but of course he would be tired because he kept climbing on his own and ignored some resting area even if he should have rest there for a bit. However it was not that hard to find a resting place that he could use, a mountain had a lot of resource and he could even rest on the tree for a bit. It had been a long time ever since he last climbed the Jade Dragon Mountain, perhaps the last time was around 5 years ago? He couldn’t really remember. He didn’t even remember why he would go climbing the mountain before, wondering maybe he went up here to get some refreshing after a whole day learning. It was not that important though because he had an important reason now, but he could say that he was not sure with the friend that he will be meeting soon… But oh well, he joined and promised the Imuchakk to meet up with him to waste some time too, so his uneasiness didn’t really matter. He was sure that he could protect himself for now…

The tree gave a lot of comfort for the one eyed man, giving him a place to lean against. The quietness in the forest helped to make the swordsman relaxed as well, so after he adjusted himself to a comfortable position, Tenma fell asleep. He was not really sleeping though because it would be dangerous if he ended up getting into a deep slumber and suddenly wake up in the middle of dangerous situation.

Luck might not be with him though because when he finally able to rest for a few hours, the swordsman woke up because he heard a cracking sound. ‘Great…’ He murmured before preparing himself to fall alongside the trunk, bumping on the ground before maneuvering himself to sit down slowly. He checked himself and he was not wounded, only small cuts but time would heal him. Looked like luck had not abandoned him fully at all, but maybe not… A woman was holding a sword and beside her was a big canine that looked ready to devour anyone. He watched the woman practicing with her sword and Tenma could tell that she was not used to hold a sword before, her technique was sloppy and she couldn’t even hold to sword right. “Excuse me…” Tenma stayed still, sitting on the ground while sending a friendly smile towards the woman.

xxxxxx Her self training didn't seem to be getting her anywhere. A sword was a foreign thing to her as she got through life just fine by using her strength. Pluto had stayed within the vicinity, sniffing around for herbs to eat perhaps to soothe indigestion. As he was wandering about he perked his head up after hearing a branch snap. Diana stopped training abruptly and looked towards her companion who seemed interested in where it came from. Passing it off as just an animal she returned to her training for a moment. Pluto noticed the man before Diana had, stepping a little closer to her to protect her. The large pup seemed calm on the outside but he was ready to launch himself at the man if he moved. Startled by an unfamiliar voice she turned around quickly to find the source, locking eyes with him. She hadn't noticed him and was embarrassed that he may have saw her training. Diana blushed, averting her gaze and sheathing her sword slowly. Pluto huffed air out his nostrils and walked off. The man didn't seem like a threat to her but he was sure to keep an eye on his master just in case. Diana shrugged her shoulders and took a deep breath to regain her composure. "Where..?" she mumbled, looking at the area around him. He seemed to have been the thing that had fallen from the tree. "Are you alright?" she asked, cautiously moving towards him and offering him a hand to help him up as he seemed to have fallen on his bum.

“Ah, forgive me. I am alright.” Tenma smiled brighter than before as he took the woman’s hand, but he made sure that he stood up by himself so the woman wouldn’t be pressured to help and lift him up. As soon as he got up, he would pat his blazer and trousers to keep it clean before looking at the woman who had this beautiful platinum blonde hair color. Her eyes were red though… just like one of the eye that was covered behind his eyepatch but he was sure that she was not the same like him although her vibe was kind of different than an ordinary human. “Are you training with your sword?” The black haired male asked as he tilted his head while staring at the canine and turned his gaze into the woman’s sword. “I apologize if I sound rude, but is it your first time holding a sword? You seemed more like a person who used to tame a beast…” He was curious about the red eyed woman, she was holding a fine looking sword but it seemed that she didn’t know how to use it properly, let alone attacking someone with it.

“My name is Hua Yang, a traveler. What is your name, milady?” He put his right hand to his left side chest, giving a formal greeting to the woman. Although, he knew that he should get going to where Solomon would be as soon as possible, but perhaps being a little bit late would be okay. He suddenly became more interested to this woman’s progress with the sword so he might just go as far as teaching her how to wield sword properly. “Would you let me train you?” He said as he kept smiling before reaching out his hand to the woman, hoping the woman would place her hand on his palm and accepting his offer. It would be his first time training a woman though, but it would be interesting…

xxxxxx Diana went to pull him up but let him pick himself up as he didn't really use her as leverage. "I was," she said, gazing down at the ground for a moment then at her sword. "You saw my poor attempt at using it, huh," she chuckled, unsheathing it and holding it in her hands. Diana stared at it for a moment before gazing over at Pluto. They locked eyes for a moment before looking away. "My family isn't very... good with weapons," she said as she directed her attention back to the man. There were many questions she wanted to ask but decided to hold them off for later. As she wasn't familiar with the area, she didn't want to overstep any boundaries or customs the people might have had. Diana re-sheathed the sword resting her hand on the pommel.

xxxxxx "Diana," she flashed him a soft smile, subtly bowing her head. "I'm a... hunter of sorts," she said, rubbing the back of her head. 'What is a traveler doing out here in the mountains?' she thought to herself. They were in the middle of the mountains no where near any villages or so she thought. This land held many wonders and excitements but there were still many things she didn't understand. It was very different from Reim. Her head tilted a bit when he asked to train her. "Train me?" she asked, a bit nervous about it, "If you have time. I'm afraid I'm not very good." Her voice was quiet as she was embarrassed. But perhaps this would be a good opportunity.

Tenma chuckled, he didn’t have a lot of time to be honest but he was willing to be late to help this woman on how to properly wield a sword. “Don’t worry, milady. I have plenty of time, although it might be not much. But I am sure that I can teach you some swordplay in a short time.” The black haired would then pulled his sword, but didn’t remove the sheath as he only did it to show his Katana to the woman. “There are many swords with different shape, mine is called as a Katana and I made my fighting style to match this Katana. Even though I can easily handle another type of sword as well…” He would caress his Katana slowly, cherishing it before putting it back to hang on the side of his waist. The man would then kneel down before observing the woman’s sword, he could feel something that was not ordinary from the sword and was pretty sure that this sword was infused with magic. Perhaps it would be better if he taught her how to use the sword to its full potential as well, but first, he would teach her the basic.


“The first thing that you need to do is to setting up your stance and knowing the proper way to hold a sword. If you could do it, then swinging it must be easier.” Tenma explained before moving closer to the girl, “Excuse me.” The man stood from behind the woman and carefully grab her hand that was holding a sword before pulling another hand to hold the grip of the sword as well. He would adjust Diana’s to grip the sword properly, so her right hand would be gripping the upper side of the sword’s grip while the left hand would be holding the lower side.  “Like that, remember, right hand on the top, left hand on the bottom. You are not necessarily need to use both hand, but at least you will know how to use both hand and one hand to hold the sword.” He would explained it to the girl slowly and made sure she hold it right before moving away from her a little bit. He would be focusing on her stance now, correcting it and explaining her about the stance before telling her to not move so her body could remember the stance.


After a few minutes passed, the swordsman would ask Diana to lift her sword upwards before swinging it down. As she did, Tenma watched and noted that she could do it but she needed to put more strength to the swing. “It was good, but you need to stay calm and put more strength inside. Do 20 swings now…”

xxxxxx Diana nodded her head in agreement. She would try to learn quickly in order to not waste his time. The katana he showed her wasn't foreign to her. Her father had something similar but it was a lot bigger-- a nodachi he called it. "I won't disappoint you," she said. Diana wasn't entirely confident in the fact she'd learn quick but she wouldn't admit it. As the man moved closer to her she flinched a bit, not really expecting him to touch her. She paid close attention to how he adjusted her hands around the handle of the sword. "Right hand on top, left on the bottom... got it," she mumbled, making mental notes in her head. Fortunately her memory was fairly good but she would still have to write this down later. "Now?" she questioned as he moved away from her a bit. He took his time explaining and showing her the proper stance to be in. It was a few minutes of trial and error before she got it just right.

xxxxxx She wasn't expecting something like this to make her so nervous. But she felt proud of herself for coming this far already even if it was something as simple as this. He asked her to swing the sword down and she did so but it was weak. She knew it. Diana shrugged and rolled her shoulders back before trying again. The man noted that she could use more strength in it. "I-I'll try," she stuttered. Diana furrowed her brows and took a deep breath before doing as he asked. The sword whistled lightly through the air as she sliced through the air. The force of her strikes blew the leaves on the ground in front of her up into the air. After the first few strikes she hesitated but shook off her nerves and completed the rest of the task without an issue. Her form was still stiff but she loosened up into a more natural strike as she practiced. "How did I do?" she asked, gazing over at him for approval.

Diana’s first strike was kind of wobbly and Tenma noticed that the woman might be nervous, her body language from when he asked if she was training her sword was showing it as well. She was not sure about it, yet she wanted to learn even though she had no idea on how to learn the path of the sword except to swing it. He waited, crossing his arms in front of his chest as he observed Diana’s movement as she swung the sword. ‘Hmmm…’ It was a sloppy swing, but the more she swing her sword, the more confident she became. The movement became better as well and Tenma was certain that the woman was a quick learner as long as someone guided her right.

When the blonde asked her about her progress, the swordsman chuckled before approaching the girl and leaned closer. He would reach his hand and put it on Diana’s head, slowly ruffling her hair for a few second. “Good work, you did good.” He stepped back right after and smiled brightly at Diana, wanting her to do more swings so she can get used to it. “You will need to do more swings though and keep reminding yourself about the right stance. Also, you need to be more confident. I am here to teach you, not to judge you. Trust your sword and it will trust you back.” His words might not made any sense, but he believed it himself. A sword was not just a mere tool, it was the user’s limb and sometime some people consider it as part of their soul. “Now I will increase the number, hopefully you can’t bear it. Do 50 swings from up to down and continue with 25 upper left to down right swings, also 25 upper right to down left swings.”

Once she started doing it, not only he observed her movement again but he also thought about something that she needed to do. He didn’t know about her stamina, so that swings would help him to measure it. He would give her some physical training if needed, but he would wait until she was done swinging those hundred sword slashes.

xxxxxx When he ruffled her hair she flinched, fixing her hair afterwards. She smiled and chuckled nervously. Diana was glad she was doing well. His smile made her blush in embarrassment, practically dropping her sword as she fumbled to regain her composure. "I understand," she said, adjusting herself into the correct stance again. It took her a few moments but she finally got it right. Diana gripped the sword comfortably and rolled her shoulders back. A hundred strikes wouldn't be too hard as her stamina was rather good. Though her having worked herself up left her a bit breathless. She began slicing the sword vertically and gradually paced her breathing so she was no longer struggling. The first exercise went by like a breeze as she had already done them before.

xxxxxx The second exercise wasn't as easy as the first. She wasn't out of breath just yet but she struggled slightly getting the swings just right. But eventually it came naturally to her when she stopped worrying about it. Diana ended up doing a bit more than she was supposed to before switching over to the other side. It took her less time to adjust than the previous motions as it was just the last task but in reverse. Eventually she stopped counting and got a bit carried away until she stopped abruptly. It'd been a few minutes since she started. Diana released the sword a bit, stretching out her limbs. She felt a bit stiff from all the training he was putting her through though it wasn't much. It wasn't something she was used to for sure.

xxxxxx She cleared her throat and stuck the sword into the ground, resting her hands on the pommel. "I think I'm getting the hang of it," she said. Diana picked up her feet a few times. She wasn't the biggest fan of standing still for extended periods of time. They'd have to had been there for about an hour so far. She looked up into the sky to get a good grasp of the time but it was hidden mostly by dark clouds that rolled past. "Perhaps it will rain..," she mumbled to herself. "Does it rain often in Kou?" she asked, genuinely curious. It didn't rain as often in Reim as she wished it did. Her home country was quite a dry land.

Diana clearly had a lot of stamina so probably the physical training wouldn’t be needed, she just need to get more training in swordsmanship also maybe if she was interested, some basic martial arts. The moment she stuck the sword into the ground, Tenma would chuckle and asked her teasingly, “Tired?” He wanted to see how she reacted but he wouldn’t ask her to do more swings for today maybe, unless she wanted to do more. The woman did a very good improvement though, managed to make her body get used to the stance and the sword’s swinging although her concentration might be bad in the last minutes. Oh well, it could be trained later.

The sky was darkened and perhaps it would be better for them to find a nice place for a shelter, but then Diana asked him something that made Tenma laughed a little. “Not really, not too often as much as I know. Although I am travelling a lot, so I am not sure. But yes, Reim is a little bit dry, isn’t it?” The black haired man smiled to the red eyed woman before reaching out his hand again, asking for her hand. “We would have to go find a shelter now, shall we move now?”

Once they found a shelter, the man would leaned against the wall and said, “I am guessing that you seldom fight with your own fist mostly? Forgive me if I am wrong though, but I am very interested in seeing your strength. It feels different.” He chuckled and shook his head, he would silently waiting for the rain to finish soon unless the woman started a conversation with him.

The black haired man would continue to train the blonde girl right after that, but he would make her meditate beside him as he guided her to match their breathing properly. They would mostly meditate together and Tenma would teach her some stances for Diana to be able to fit herself in the path of swordsmanship. As much as he wanted to teach her some of his moves, he though that maybe it would be better for the girl to find her own move but for now perhaps he should just continue to teach her the basic.

xxxxxx Diana shook her head, lifting the sword out of the ground. "Just a bit," she joked, sheathing her sword. He didn't seem to want to continue the training for now and that was fine with her. Rain drops started to fall from the sky as a mist started to set in. Diana enjoyed the way it felt on her skin even though the coldness of the water gave her goosebumps. She looked over to Pluto who was still staring at them and motioned him over. He lowered his head and took his time to make his way to her. The pup didn't get too close, still wary of the traveler but not as much as before. Diana walked over to her companion and gave him a few pats on the head, smiling.

xxxxxx "It's very dry," she said, looking up into the sky with closed eyes and taking a deep breath. "Rain is always refreshing." Pluto shook his body to get the small beads of water that formed on his fur off of him. "I don't think he likes it too much though," she giggled, scratching under his chin. He licked her hand once before walking away again after the man mentioned leaving. Diana wasn't sure if she wanted to take his hand or not so she didn't take it. "We may," she replied, following him for a time. They finally found shelter in a small indent in the mountain. It was a decent space and shielded them from the downpour. Pluto stayed away, lurking in the forest for a time.

xxxxxx She would sit on the ground, sketching in her book. It was a hobby of hers to sketch anyone she met so she tried her best to capture the man well. He was quite handsome with a slender face but she could tell he was a warrior based off his body and hands. They were in silence for a time before he spoke and asked her a question. "I am a fanalis-- well, half of one," she said, closing her book and looking up at the rocky ceiling above. She began to tell him a bit about herself. Where she came from, who she was, and a bit of her adventures. Before long the rain stopped and they were on their way again.

xxxxxx For the days they spent together he trained her the same way. Eventually she began practicing off on her own at night when he was sleeping. It wasn't long before she eventually began finding her own way of the sword and it showed. During the day they meditated most of the time. The rest was exercises and practicing stance. Over time she began to do things more natural as if she'd been doing it her whole life. Diana was surprised at how fast she was learning. Her skills were more polished. She wondered if he would teach her anything more than the basics but she never quite asked out of respect for her new teacher.

As expected for the half Fanalis to be able to have a natural battle skill and fast learning over something about fighting, although she was a halfling but Tenma notice that she had the strength of a pure Fanalis. After two week passed, the swordsman wondered if Diana would like to do more training. If she agreed then they would do around two weeks training again, but the black haired man couldnt just made a decision by himself like that. "Say, Diana, would you like to do more training? I think we can use this training to figure out your own fighting style." He smiled kindly, he remembered that he needed to teach her on how to use the magic function of the sword as well if she had not known about how to use it yet. Then perhaps some sparring together would be good... He began to plan all the training method that he wanted to implement for Diana, but of course he needed the woman's answer first.

If she agreed, then Tenma would begin to give her more training. Their first week would be more focused on the basic again as well as the sword's technique, while the second week would be for the defensive move, using the magic in the sword and sparring session. They would start the first day by meditating first, matching their breathing together. Tenma would spent several hours to meditate before he got up and waited for Diana to finish so they can start another session. “Although I said that this training would help to figure out your own fighting style, most of sword’s style was made by copying the other style or to counter it.” Tenma would put his hand on the sheathe of his Katana, getting himself ready. “I am using something that you can say as an eastern style, but I am perfecting it more to match with my own style. However, since you are from Reim, western style might be better.” His pulled a bit of his Katana from his sheathe, signaling Diana to get ready and prepare her sword as well.


“You are fast enough so perhaps you need a technique that can deal a huge damage that can match with your strength.”
Tenma would begin to lift his sword before he readied it in front of himself, pointing the blade upwards. After that, he would begin to walk towards a tree and while still in the same stance, the black haired man put down his sword before suddenly striking the tree from lower left into the upper right side, cutting the tree down. “Just like that, keep practicing the slashes but put more strength into the sword, think of it as your hand. And make it as if you are trying to cut something with your own ‘hand’” After that, he would point a tree near them and said, “When you are ready, try cutting this tree down. It is quite thick but we might need to cut it into a wood log so we can use it later.”

The next day will be starting with another meditation as well and they would follow the same training but this time, he would make Diana focused on practicing another kind of slash. He showed another move by swinging his sword from above, sending a wave-like wind that was produced by his slash. “You should be able to make stronger wind than me, go ahead and try it.”

The rest of the week would be the same, he would teach Diana some new moves that would be focusing on dealing heavy damage by showing it to her first so she could follow after. He was kind of hoping that she could improvise the moves and surprised him later in their sparring. At the beginning of the second week, Tenma would stand beside the woman and asked her to show her sword before telling her to be in an offensive stance. “Do you know how to pour a magoi into your sword? Because this sword isnt just an ordinary sword…” If she didnt know how to do it, Tenma would began to instruct Diana to hold the sword tightly and concentrated, after that he would wait until Diana was ready.

xxxxxx It had been a while since Diana had met the traveler Hua Yang. He treated her quite kindly and she appreciated it. Though she felt a burden to him she didn't quite want to leave as she didn't want to be by herself in the mountains again. They were walking along the rough paths silently before he posed a question to her. She lifted her head and thought about it. The man offered her more training. Diana still felt odd when he asked her such things since she didn't want to waste his time. Her palm rolled over the pommel of her blade and she pursed her lips. "If you wish to train me," she said. Her speech was becoming less formal as they spent more time with each other but it was only just beginning to become more comfortable. As much as she liked to be around others her social skills were dull. They discussed what sort of training they'd be doing as per usual. He intended to assist her in finding her own style and refining her skills with the blade. His style was a lot different from those she had seen in the coliseum. People in Reim seemed to favor short swords or larger, heavier weaponry. Hua's sword was long yet light-- allowing him to maneuver it with ease. Diana's sword had a bit of weight to it but it wasn't anything she couldn't handle.

xxxxxx The first week of training wasn't as hard as she thought it would be. They did the usual meditation in the mornings and the same process of simple sword strokes that she had been doing before but in greater number. Diana had ended up losing count but she had done these exercises thousands of times. Even for a fanalis she couldn't take too much more by the end of the week. Her limbs felt weightless and flimsy but she tried not to let her fatigue show. One of the days he decided to train a bit differently, drawing his sword. Diana stood in the stance he had been teaching her prepared for whatever he had for her. He walked over to a tree and sliced it down, giving a bit of advice. She just kind of stared as the tree came crashing down. 'Seriously?' she thought, kind of underwhelmed about the whole idea but he had been training her well enough for her to retain her faith in him. Diana made a few practice slashes before slicing down a tree herself. It was a bit shocking to her how her blade cut through it like butter. Was it her strength-- or her technique? She wasn't quite sure, perhaps it was both. Though the slice she made was more horizontal than his, it felt natural and fluid as if the sword was apart of her.

xxxxxx That next morning after a long day of training he decided to switch it up again. Hua wanted her to create heavy wind with her strokes using her strength. She had done something like this before but her sword strokes were more short and abrupt than they were before. Diana smiled softly and shook her head, "I doubt it," she joked while getting into her stance. She swung her sword as he did creating about the same type of effect as he did but she knew she didn't put all her strength into it. "Let me try again," she said, her expression concentrated and serious. She repeated her movement and put all the strength she had into it creating a large gust. Excited on how well she did, Diana jumped up and down a few times with a bright smile on her face. When she realized he was there she stopped but it wasn't as embarrassing as it would have been. She began to open up her personality to him a bit more although he had remained the same. The rest of the week was the same type of training. He made sure to teach her how to use her strength to her advantage. In her off time she had been practicing by herself at night, sparring with Pluto to learn her own way of the sword. She wasn't quite ready to attempt it on Hua, afraid it wouldn't be good enough.

xxxxxx At the beginning of the next week he mentioned something about using something called magoi. She had heard of the term but never really understood what it was. "To be honest with you... I'm really not sure what magoi is-- but I'll try," she said, trying her best to focus as he instructed her to. Diana felt a soft tingly feeling in her hands as she did so and the sword revealed a small symbol that glowed on it. The weapon swirled with a storm-like effect. Electricity and clouds formed around it. She got a little scared, losing her concentration and dropping the sword, stepping back a bit from it. "What was that?" she asked, confused as to what just happened.

“Magoi is the energy from your body, the more focused you are… you will be able to control the flow of magoi. Perhaps not as good as how magician could control theirs to cast spells, but if we do it right, we are capable to create a magic from a magic weapon like you had or even perform a magoi manipulation move when you are stronger later.” The black haired man slowly explained to her, trying not to use difficult wording because he wanted her to understand quickly, not because he underestimate her.

He was amused by the fact that Diana was capable to do it, but seeing her reaction was entertaining. “Don’t stop.” Tenma said while he chuckled before positioned himself behind Diana, “Excuse me.” He said, asking for permission as he leaned closer to the woman before gripping both of her hands which were holding the sword. His back would be pressed against Diana’s back and she could hear his normal paced heartbeat as well as his breath on her ears as he spoke. “Don’t be surprised, it was the power of the sword. Do it again but this time concentrate more and keep yourself calmer.”

Once Diana managed to do it, he will train her more for a week about the magic weapon and some little sparring to make her get used to the swordsmanship. At the end of their training, the black haired man was interested to invite her to join Solomon as well as to see more of her growth because he found her as a very interesting warrior. “Say, do you have somewhere that you want to go after this? Would you like to come with me to meet this interesting person? He kind of needing some more support. I won’t force you if you say no though.” The swordsman chuckled and leaned against the tree as he waited for her to answer. He wouldn’t anything more about it though unless she asked about it.

xxxxxx Embarrassed, Diana picked the sword back up as Hua explained what magoi was. She listened intently but was still a bit confused as to what just happened. "I think I understand now," she said. Diana took a deep breath and fixed her grip on the sword, trying to concentrate again. After what happened last time she was still afraid of it but kept trying to fight that baseless fear. Her face flushed red as she suddenly felt him press himself against her back. She wasn't quite sure what to do. If anything it made her more on edge. A lot of things were going on at once. He had asked her not to stop but it was incredibly hard for her to concentrate. The feeling of his heartbeat and his soft breath on her ear was a bit too much for her to handle. It made it a bit hard to breathe. While his was calm her heart couldn't race faster. "I-I can do it," she stammered, "I mean-- b-by myself." She used that as an excuse to loosen away from his grasp to calm herself down. He was certainly charming but she couldn't let it get to her.

xxxxxx It took a while but she was able to do it. After feeding an ample amount of magoi into the sword it crackled with the power of that of a storm, releasing clouds that formed into two wolf-like entities out of it that crashed into the terrain in front of her. A part of her felt like the attempt could have been controlled better but she had enough for the day. Whatever this magoi substance was-- she knew she didn't have much of it to work with. After that day he had her use the swords power over the course of a week. She felt more comfortable as the days went by and she was able to control the storm clouds that came out of it. It proved to be a more powerful weapon than she had originally thought. Though she didn't use the effects on anyone she wanted to test it out one day in battle.

xxxxxx The last morning of their training after they were done meditating, he didn't ask much of her to do that day so she just trained on her own. For the past few weeks it was the only thing she knew and it was quite enjoyable for her. He asked her if she had anywhere to go and she finally remembered he had to be somewhere. She stopped abruptly and looked at him. "He might be angry you made him wait so long," she laughed, giving him a concerned look. "I don't have to go anywhere," she said, sighing and shaking her head. "We've been training all this time so it wouldn't hurt to stick together for a bit longer." It wasn't long since they last met but she already considered him a friend and ally. He was someone she looked up to as a mentor and someone she strives to defeat one day in a spar. But that was for another time. "What does he need support for?" she asked casually. Hua was a bit vague when he said his friend needed help.

When the woman wanted to loosen away from Tenma, the swordsman wouldn’t force her to stay still and smiled as he stepped back once. “I understand, go ahead.” He said as he nod before staring intensely to the red eyed woman as if he wanted her to prove that she really was able to do it by herself. The training went well so far and just like Tenma guessed, the girl was a fast learner as well. It would be a waste if Tenma didn’t see how Diana could develop her strength more, so when she said she would stick together with him, it made the swordsman gave a bright smile as a signal that he was pleased. Although the reason why he was so interested to her was because of her beast like strength, something that he wanted to learn more. He didn’t think that it had the exact similarity with his own abnormality, but in one way and another, it felt a little bit similar as they said that Fanalis could be a fierce beast sometime. Just like how he could be a blood thirsty beast when he gave in to the urge…

“Oh, to make a country. Hope you don’t mind.” The swordsman explained short with a smile still attached on his face as he packed up his own belongings. “Shall we go?"

OOC: Let's start new thread before we join Solomon and Endolf so Tenma and Diana can know each other more :3
