PostSubject: Preparations [Hiro, Cleo, Amamiya, Suzume]   22nd June 2016, 6:21 pm

It was a rather awkward climate at the Jigokugakure training grounds. Being situated between four activate volcanoes, one would assume that the weather would be humid and dry, however, it was quite the complete opposite today and as the cold winds blew throughout the training grounds the one person who was actually at the grounds currently couldn’t help but grimace. “This must be some sort of omen.” Hiro muttered as he wasn’t too fond of the current weather, why wasn’t he? It was simply due to the fact that it reminded him of his trip to Samuigakure and his encounter with that Toketsu bandit. He had somehow managed to escape her lustful clutches, however, his escort wasn’t that lucky. To this day he had still been beating himself up over the death of the boy, after all, he should’ve been strong enough to protect him, yet he allowed him to be killed. How was he supposed to become a God of Pandora if he was unable to protect his comrades? What if something had happened to her? He needed to be stronger so that whatever happens to her he would be able to be her sword. “Yosha, this weather won’t hinder my progress! Time to train!” Hiro cried out before pulling out his katana and began practicing his swings.

OOC: We will post back and forth until Satsuki eventually posts, I would prefer your posting to be as rapid as possible.

A certain individual would cackle as she heard the boy's exclamation, and would do so as she walked out of the clearing leaning on her staff and shuffling over to her grand nephew's heir candidate. She had wanted to see for herself what he looked like and his personality not to mention she wanted to personally test him and see if he was truly worthy of bearing the Isley name. She had been stalking him for a couple of days, always remaining out of sight as she could move quite quickly when she had to, and had noticed his interaction with a Cypher girl from the Tenshi clan. So today she had confronted the girl who apparently was named Karliah and would bring her along for her first meeting with Hiroshima. She wanted to see whether or not he was properly taking into consideration the future of the Isley family, after all her grand nephew was sterile seeing as he was undead oh how she had raged when she found out his idiotic decision. Sure she had calmed down when he explained his relationship with The Pheonix, so at least there was hope for her older brother's bloodline to continue on. She might be old but she wasn't above match making and if her great grand niece or nephew was to be born a Demigod then it was only natural to engage this boy's future child to her. This way he would be properly bound to the family more than mere ceremonial adoption as family ties bound people together irrevocably especially in Pandora where death was a mere afterthought.

Well now, you know back in my day one had to be alert at all times, what with those shogunate dogs oppressing us day in and day out. You are too lax, child. Suzume said and if he took too long to greet her, or didn't know who she was she would quickly follow up with a rebuke. "Tch, such disrespect you children have these days, no respect for your elders. To think Xan-chan was telling me about some gifted apprentice he had and this is the showing you give me. Hmph" she said with scoff before pointing into the distance. "No matter, I am Isley Suzume. Your mentor Xan knows me as his great aunt, you can call me Suzume-dono though maybe if I grow fond of you I'll let you call me Suzu-baasama like Xan-chan does. By the way, I noticed you have a Zireh girlfriend and a proper cypher as well good on you. Pity though, I wonder I knocked her out and dumped her somewhere within this large training area, who knows who will stumble upon a poor defenseless child like that. she would frown and if Hiro noticed in that moment he could see that Xan I. Ibwa's frown was a genetic trait.

"You should probably go find her, I think her name was Karliah? Or something?" She didn't, however have any intention of letting him go look for Karliah that easily and if he did end up moving she would attacking him if only to see the extent of his kenjutsu skill.

------------

Meanwhile in a different location somewhat far away from where they were training, about 200 ft or so give or take 50 Cleo was laying on the ground unconscious after some old lady who despite her being really nice to had constantly nagged her while rambling on about her being too thin and a member of that clan of intolerant pricks. She had agreed and thought they were getting along but out of no where she had been attacked and quickly knocked out, sure she had seen the strike coming however when one attack multiplied immensely she simply wasn't fast enough to evade them all and had quickly blacked out.

Hiro had already finished his thousandth rep when he had heard the laughter of someone in the area. His grey hues would quickly shift over to the location of said laughter and they would lay upon something rather disturbing. “What the hell is that?” He muttered under his breath careful not to allow the thing walking towards him to hear his words. Though he knew that Pandora was filled with monsters and undead, he couldn’t help but be surprised anytime he had come across something like this. From what he could tell the creature was feminine and was regrettably, heading towards him. Why? Who knew, but he was pretty sure he would find out. Turning to face the woman, he would sheathe his sword but kept his hand on the hilt in the event that she would try and attack him.

A soft sigh escaped his lips the moment she had start rambling on about back her day, why was it that old people felt incline to speak about the past and how it differed from now? Of course, you had to be alert back then, it was probably back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and the kunai was had just been invented. Just as he was about to tell her that she was interrupting a very important training session she had mention two familiar names. The first of course was the name of his mentor, Xan and the second was the name of his family, Isely. “Forgive me Suzume-dono.” Hiro said before bowing slightly. To think he was about to disrespect the old man’s old aunt, that probably wouldn’t have ended well at all, thankfully he was skilled in the art of holding his tongue. Now that he knew that he was in the presence of someone who wasn’t out to murder him a smile would appear on his face, that smile, however, would quickly vanish as she continued talking. “……Where is she?” He asked attempting to keep his anger in check, after all, she was still a relative of Xan and this was probably just a test or something but even so, why was his blood boiling? The damn weather was an omen after all.

Suzume would cackle once more as she saw that he instantly became serious, ah young love all it needed was the right push and it would blossom like the spring lotus. "Come now child, do you really think it would be so easy. We shall play a game, you can either try and run and find her or you can fight me and make me tell you. I am but a shadow of my former self you know these old bones don't move like they used to, but I'm still limber enough to easily catch a young whippersnapper like yourself." Suzume said making a show of stretching before wincing as her back went out, ah the drawbacks of age and she would shift before multiple cracking sounds could be heard as she realigned her spine. "It's up to you, I might be old but, I am an Isley and we are famed for our skills in the art of Kenjutsu, if you really are as gifted as Xan-chan says you are. Then this shouldn't be too much of a problem for you correct, especially if you want to see that little girlfriend of yours." she said shuffling a bit more, her eyes still squinted to the point that it looked as if they were fully closed, who knew if they were truth be told.

------------

Cleo was still unconscious, in the same spot fortunately it didn't seem like anyone was nearby...for now.

Of course, she wasn’t just going to tell him that would’ve been too easy. Her intentions were clear, she wanted to test him to see if he was worthy enough and even though he would’ve preferred running away from her to find Karliah, it was obvious that his only choice was to beat the location of his friend out of her the real question was, however, was he strong enough to defeat such a person? Sure he was pretty strong for his rank but he was pretty sure that this woman was on a different level than the enemies he had faced thus far, so he would have to play this fight smart or he would either end up embarrassing himself and sully Xan’s name, again or in the worst case scenario die a horrible and painful death. “So be it.” He simply said as he readied himself for battle.

Jumping backwards at Vacuum release speeds, Hiro would pull three galvanized senbon and three drill tip senbon before throwing them towards the woman in an arc attempting to cover both the left and the right sides of her limiting her escape route. But he wouldn’t stop there as he would also five chidori senbon directly towards her, more specifically her chest and pelvic region. If she had somehow managed to evade the senbon assault he would be watching and waiting to strike her down.

Suzume would continue shuffling forward though speeding up to normal running speed even though the senbon quickly approached, she wouldn't bother dodging instead she would be hit and would make a show of it twisting as her body was hit and then falling forward. "Ah. I'm dead." she said in a deadpan voice as she wasn't amused that instead of engaging her in kenjutsu immediately he chose to run. To retreat instead of advance he was that sort of kenjutsu user a passive reactive type instead of an aggressive active type, then again Xan-chan had mentioned something about picking up an apprentice to motivate his heir that seemed to be the opposite in both personality and kenjutsu mentality. Suzume was that sort of fighter as well initially she had grown out of it with age and would always be aggressive at heart and so when she fell forward previous slow shuffling would vanish as would her body.

To Hiro's eyes it would be as if she were using Shunpo but she wasn't, she was using an older style of it, in her youth it had been a pain to use it unless absolutely necessary but now she didn't even feel the pain much less suffered from the weaknesses of having a damaged hip. "Live by the sword die by the sword I always say, ugh my poor hip how disrespectful making an old lady like myself have to move all the way over to you." she would say once she got close enough to Hiro that she was comfortably in range despite travelling a shorter distance than Shunpo typically did. Then again it didn't matter that she could only cover a shorter amount of distance in the same time as he did when her Displacement Aura just made up all the difference in the end. She would draw her blade utilizing Iaido deciding to start her attack with a simple Iai Slicing aiming to lop off one of Hiro's legs that way he couldn't run anymore. However it wasn't her actual strike that was dangerous but the displacement aura emanating from the strike itself, thus even if Hiro could see the strike he might potentially misguide it and receive a lethal blow to his torso just as he had used something potentially lethal on her she would reply in kind.

Oh right she was a Mummy and they didn’t feel pain, well that went horribly wrong. Hiro thought to himself as the plan he thought was a great idea turned out to be a rather terrible one, then again he should’ve known that it was a crappy idea the moment he thought of it but he was still in the trial and error phase of his life and he would simply have to put this down as an error, a really stupid one. If he had somehow managed to make it out alive of this, hopefully, she would hand over the senbons that were currently stuck in her bandages, those things were pretty expensive.

Well back to the fight. As stated before he was watching her closely using a combination of his Mashin Raidengan and Muscle Tension, thus the moment she had pretended to flop to the ground he was able to predict her intentions and as such would look to counter. Of course, it had made more sense to just dodge her oncoming assault, after all, he was able to predict and react, however, he felt like being a tad bit reckless and this would either work in his favor or end up being yet another mistake, this time probably a fatal one. Burning S rank worth of chakra, Hiro would bolt towards Suzume at SS- speeds, in an attempt to outspeed her. Since he was obviously faster than the woman, that would mean that he was able to cover more ground in less time than her, so once he was a few feet away from her, he would unsheathe his katana, then use Batto to intercept her attack in an attempt to stop her in her tracks. If this was successful, he would follow up his counter by delivering a horizontal slash to the arm that held the weapon, looking too severe it from her body. If his attack was unsuccessful, well he would ensure that he would react to her attack with Sayo Heritage.

Suzume's strike would suddenly increase in speed as she saw his quick counterattack if only due to her experience with kenjutsu based combat and her own natural reflexes. She had utilized Iai Quick-Draw but hadn't pushed her speed to her limit because she wanted to delude him into thinking that was her maximum however that wasn't the true attack it was merely an opener. "Oh? He taught you Batto huh." Suzume would comment off hand as one strike would become 5 not of any particular style just random unpredictable strikes all occurring in the same moment. This was something Xan had deliberately not taught the boy she could tell as he was merely using the kenjutsu technique of batto not the true fighting style. She figured it was because he was teaching this to his student while leaving his heir with something that suited his Denkou roots more.

It was with this technique and her displacement aura that she would parry his incoming strike, using her displacement aura to ensure that their blades never touched and instead aiming 4 more strikes to his torso, other arm and both legs. She knew he of all people would be able to see exactly what she had done, how she had struck five times in the moment it took normal individual to strike once. Or if he couldn't tell he would just have to activate higher stages of those fancy eyes of his lest he be cut up in four places after his sword strike was parried away. She would sheathe her blade right after and jerk her head forward as if she were headbutting him, which thanks to her displacement aura it would extend her physical impact 6 feet away to actually deal the headbutt if he was that close to her. This would have the added effect of forcing him to  wince back and leave him vulnerable to a follow up if it managed to land.

His body would come to an immediate halt the moment his strike was parried thus ending his Hirenkyaku fueled charge. Hiro always hated the feeling of extreme fatigue he would get after using the Hirenkyaku technique, however now wasn’t the time for him to be dwelling on that as he was currently in a whole lot of trouble. Her strikes were fast, faster than he could’ve ever imagined, which made him wonder if she was actually holding back n diff she was, he was pretty sure that she wasn’t holding back because she didn’t want to hurt him, it was probably due to the fact that she wanted to catch him off guard and end him. “As if that’s gonna happen!” He muttered to himself as she launched her attack. Thankfully he was blessed with visual prowess as well as Muscle tension thus he was able to determine where the woman was looking to thrust her blade and would look to defend himself as being hacked to pieces wasn’t on his agenda for the day.

Shifting his body he would quickly take the Blood Moon Stance and as the strikes entered his Tsuki Radii, he would act. Hiro would parry the first strike that was aimed at his upper torso away from his body using his katana and since she was too far away for him to strike he would parry the next strike that was aimed at his opposite arm with his Wakizashi. The fourth strike would be parried away with his katana and when he had attempted to parry the final strike, he would end up stumbling forward and somehow managed to teeter in an arc 25ft in length, heading up and over Suzume looking to land behind her. If he was successful in doing so, he would bolt towards her at S+ speeds to slash her into the air to perform the Crimson Drilling Blade.

Suzume would watch as he parried her flurry of strikes, glad that he wasn't done from just that, however he would suddenly stumble and smoothly end up behind and from her experience she knew she would not be able to turn in time and defend against his strike. So she wouldn't, defend that is and would hold the now sheathed cane sword as she prepared to use Iai Rampaging. She would let him come at her focusing in dealing a counter strike the moment he was close enough to try and unleash. But she wouldn't stop there not in the slightest, from that one Iai Rampaging would come 5 blows once more utilizing Batto to increase the number of strikes she could make with one draw. The Isley family had invented that particular Iaido technique, if one was born a cypher why not take advantage of it their innate hardiness and tolerance to pain meant they could take the risk of being cut. Especially if it didn't hit a vital point whereas most opponents did need all the organs in their body. Once again she would try and strike him while he was still too far away, but it was a bait she wanted him to fall for it and merely parry and attempt to counter instead to halting his assault and processing exactly what she was going to do. He was right on one thing, she wasn't holding back, sure her power had greatly diminished since in her prime but if she could strike him down she would. The younger generation was supposed to surpass the older one, so if he wasn't able to strike her down in kind then there was no hope and Xan would just have to find a new apprentice who wouldn't be such a disappointment.

A wave of uneasiness would wash over his body as he approached the woman with the intent to cut her down. He knew that she had no means of dodging his attack, but why did he feel as if following through would be a grave mistake? His crimson hues had caught upon her strange shift in stance and it was then he knew that she had something up her sleeve, and since his intuition has never failed him to date he had decided it was best not to go through with his counter attack. That decision, however, wasn’t enough to save him from the trap she had set him up for him as he was within her range, but he was determined to cut her down for what she had done to Karliah.

Like before he was able to pinpoint where she was going to strike, thanks to Muscle Tension and coupled with his visual prowess he was able to evade the initial blow backed by her aura by shifting to the left. Not in the clear yet as there were four more additional strikes heading his way. The strike coming towards his neck her would push aside with his katana, the second strike he parry away with his wakizashi, the third strike he would parry it with his katana and the last he would parry with his wakizashi, the moment he parried it however, he would drop a small ball of lightning magic in the event she decided to turn around to face him before simply running past her at SS- speeds.

Suzume would smirk, it seemed like he was more skilled than she thought sensing his death, that is if he had foolishly rushed her but he hadn't no he warily backed off and that gave her enough time to remember a bit of her lost strength, namely refining her Battojutsu resulting in her five strikes doubling into ten. With that she would not allow him to run past her aiming strikes for his legs to halt his advance while she began to cackle a bit as she attempted to stalemate him. The longer the battle dragged on the more risk would come to the girl he cared about. "You know the longer you fight with me, the longer that little girlfriend of yours is left all vulnerable. Who knows what sort of thing might wander up she's lucky she's a Zireh so no one might try and eat her but then again my kind are pretty sturdy so they might try and break her in...if you get what I mean kekeke" she would cackle as if she had merely said a joke she knew that she would end up tiring soon though so she would have to start making bigger moves. As a result if he managed to parry the 6th strike to his legs the way she swung would change as she utilized Iai Beheading a powerful strike which could create a vacuum to cut what typically would not be cut. Merely parrying wouldn't do him any good this time, as without a suitably powerful chakra flow technique to reinforce his blade it would end up cut apart. Still it would spare him the threat of being killed but that was for the 3 other sword strikes to deal with, thus if he lacked a more potent form of Lightning chakra flow their clash would swiftly end the moment he tried to parry the next strike.

His crimson hues would witness the doubling of her strikes and he couldn’t help but feel annoyed. It felt as if she was just toying with him at this point and he didn’t know how long he could continue to be on the defensive, which meant that he needed come up with a plan and fast so that he could save Karliah and he had just the idea too, though it would be a bit strenuous on his reserves he had no choice, this fight needed to end right here and now.

Halting in his tracks, Hiro would assume the Blood Moon stance once more and prepared himself for the oncoming assault once more. This time, he would ensure that both his weaponry were coated with lightning magic using the Super- Vibrato Blade Technique before clashing with the initial strike, causing vibrations traveling up and down his weapon. Gritting his teeth, he would parry the attack to left and prepared himself for the next swing when he noticed something odd. Thanks to Muscle Tension he was able to pick up on the difference in swings between her sixth and seventh swing which prompted him to believe that this wasn’t a mere swing of her sword. Shuffling to the right he would swing his lightning coated katana towards the vacuum that was heading towards him to cut it apart and if that wasn’t enough he would ensure that it was evaded with the aid of Sayo Heritage by jumping over said vacuum. Either way, he would continue to parry away the final three strikes as he did with the sixth, ensuring that their blades met cleanly as the clash caused vibrations to course through his body.

After parrying the final strike, the number of Hiro’s on the field would become eleven as Hiro would use his bunshin technique in an attempt to confuse her and though the ten on the field were nothing but mere optical illusions, the eleventh copy of Hiro that wasn’t an illusion. The moment he had parried the final strike he had created a shadow clone which would take to the left as the original took to the right. Hoping the Bunshin would be enough to distract her, the clone would quickly perform a flurry of hand seals before bolting towards her at S+ speeds with Chidori in hand, looking to thrust it’s left arm into her core.

With the clone keeping her occupied, the real Hiro would make his way towards her at S+ speeds while activating the tattoo on his right arm. When he had gotten close enough he would deliver a powerful upward swing, which was still coated in lightning magic and she would find herself on the receiving end of one of his most deadly techniques.

Suzume would watch as the boy would strengthen the lightning in his blade before clashing with her, that was good it would be a shame if he died here, but when he multiplied into 11 she would sheathe her weapon inhaling and then upon exhaling would unleash ten strikes yet again albeit each of them being a Iai Quick-Draw version of her Iai Dividing showing that she was capable of strike far faster than what had been shown previously. Thus within a moment eleven would be cut down to one as ten vacuums formed at Echoing Flash speeds rending apart anything within 5 ft of their spawn point. She heard the chirping birds and would sheathe her blade before making a beckoning gesture with the hand not holding her blade as Hiro rushed forward causing her to unsheathe it and utilize Iai Rampaging to intercept him before he could stop clearly he had not realized that charging her was foolish. The major flaw of Chidori was that upon building all of that speed one wasn't capable of merely stopping if they missed and though Time-Slowing dojutsu made it far far easier to adjust in time when your opponent not only could react in time but also out ranged you it a futile.

"Foolish boy, I guess I have to tell Xan-chan that I broke his...wait.." Suzume would initially sigh in disappointment and then the shadow clone would explode into a poof of smoke revealing his deception. However out of the corner of her eye she would see movement and attempt an Iai Draw to try and stop Hiro's advance. However if it did fail she would at least try to manage to place her weapon between herself and the strike despite being launched upward. Her eyes would widen as she hadn't been launched off the ground in sometime but she wondered if the boy was capable of such combat, she herself was not capable of air movement but she knew she could dish out pain if need be to protect herself from being left wide open.

As he thought, the clone would meet its timely demise. It was a good thing that he hadn’t used Chidori from earlier on or he probably would’ve ended up as a pile of meat chunks. Either way, he had banked on something to happen before he followed through with his attack, namely the destruction of her weapon. Prior to them arriving at this point, Hiro had ensured that each time he had parried her sword it would receive 6 counts of D rank physical damage, slowly withering the blade away. Now he wasn’t an expert on weapon durability so he hadn’t known how durable her weapon was, but he was pretty sure that if that was just an ordinary Iaito as such the moment she had launched her final assault on the clone, the sword would snap from the hilt up due to the extreme stress placed on it by her Iai Quick draw+ Battojutsu+ Iai Dividing combination.

Regardless if his ploy worked or not he would continue onward as he could sense that his victory was at hand, now if her weapon hadn’t been destroyed, Hiro would shift to the left to avoid her Iai Draw attack before delivering a lightning imbued horizontal slash to launch her in the air. He would move towards her at SS- speeds utilizing Hirenkyaku and attempted to deliver a slash with his katana but would instead let it fall to his left hand before delivering the final blow to her chest, which would cut her and also release a paralytic natural energy wave which would send her crashing into the ground.

Suzume's blade had been chipping and denting and she had no idea the entire time only for the last time she swung to result in her cane sword breaking apart causing her eyes to widen. He would take his chance rushing on her and she would be unable to stop the sudden assault resulting in her being sliced into the air and before she knew it Hiro was above her. It wasn't just that but she could see the spinning motion of the blade in his arm and for some reason she was being pulled towards it unable to escape being pierced straight through and nailed to the ground. She would lay their immobilized blood bubbling from her mouth and staining her bandages a deep red from the point of impact though she would still manage to move giving Hiro a thumbs up and beckoning him to go and find Karliah. She had seen what she needed to see and wouldn't hinder him anymore. It was a good thing too as the rare poison she had managed to procure to knock the girl out would be wearing off soon.

Hiro couldn’t help but release a sigh of relief as the fight with the undead woman was finally over. Though he had managed to go unharmed throughout the battle, he wasn’t sure if he would’ve been able to go on much longer but thanks to his quick thinking he was able to come out as the victor. Taking a deep breathe he would pull the sword out of the woman and took a few steps away from her body. “Where is she?” He asked before deactivating his Raidengan. He was hoping she would have enough energy to tell him Karliah’s exact location so he could go get her if not well he’d probably have to start searching himself. One thing was bugging him, though. Should he be really leaving her in such a condition? He knew that cypher had a tolerance to pain but she was bleeding rather heavily.

"About 200 feet south...I put her behind a boulder...that's out of sight. You should hurry, don't worry about me didn't even feel a thing though nailing me to the ground with a sword in my chest was a nice touch." Suzume would said moving her hands so she could grip the blade and then pulling it out of her body before tossing it back to him. The wound would bleed even though she was a cypher because of the fake blood packet she liked to keep in her torso. She didn't have blood to bleed it was one of the reasons she used Shunshin instead of Shunpo even though it was less efficient. "Go on, then when you get here come back here so we can talk about things, that was fun I can see why little Xan speaks so highly of you to the family."

Yeah of course she was fine. Hiro thought to himself before catching his sword and sheathing it. Now that he knew the coordinates, it was time he had rescued Karliah though it was quite obvious now that the woman bore no ill will towards the young woman, though if all she wanted to do was to test his capabilities all she needed to do was ask for a spar. “Be right back.” He said to Suzume before taking off at S+ speeds, heading south.

Thankfully due to his speed, Hiro arrived at the location in record time and had easily located the boulder that Suzume had informed him of. “There she is…” He muttered to himself before landing beside Karliah. After inspecting her body to see if she hand any wounds, he would pick her up off the ground and made his way back to Suzume.

Just in time, seeing as Cleo would wake just moments after he reached her moving with a stir before relaxing when she realized who was carrying her. "I think you carrying me after I pass out is becoming a bad habit." she muttered shifting a bit so she could hold on to him and at least ease the burden of her body in his arms. Being made of metal albeit synthetic didn't really make one light so she knew even on the small side she was heavier than say a human female her same size, not to talk of a nova and their breakable selves. She wouldn't say anything more than that unless he spoke to her, as Suzume had actually lied when she said she merely knocked her out. Sure she had randomly been put to sleep but that was only after they had not only talked but the old woman had been nice enough to train her a bit when she mentioned her lack of speed outside of her gates. It was a new technique but she figured she'd eventually be able to get the hang of it but it was right up her alley and would allow her to at least somewhat keep up in spars with Hiro which was the main benefit to it.

---------------------------

While they were gone Suzume would sit up and take out a scroll before changing her stained bandages with other ones, while it was fun to play dead seeing as she was already dead lingering around with fake blood coating her body wasn't. If it was the blood of her enemies then that would be different blood was rather rejuvenating, both as a moisturizer for her parched skin and just because it reminded her of the old days. She had been a mercenary for a time, she kept her dealings hidden and used an alias but those were the days under the shogunate when after the villages fell missing nin boomed, fighting a guerrilla war against the enemy without cease. She missed those days but was content in Pandora where the battles never stopped and being a part of the Undead faction she had her fill with enemies, seeing as her specific faction fought everyone including themselves. Zombies were the newest plague within Pandora and were quickly spreading faster than all the others, it made sense since the Goddess had created them specifically for the purpose of routing out rebels and turning those who thought they could safely hide within the empire's borders.

A smile appeared on his face the moment he heard her voice and though it seemed as if whatever Suzume had done to her hadn’t worn off as yet he was glad that she was safe and unharmed, he wouldn’t have been able to live with himself otherwise. “Well they say bad habits die hard, besides I kinda like carrying you.” He said muttering the last part under his breath. The few moments they had shared together had made him realize that he actually thought of Karliah as more than a friend, but of course, he would never admit this to her since he would be crushed to know that she didn’t reciprocate his feelings. “How are you feeling?” He asked as he started picking up the pace. He wasn’t sure why he was heading back to the training grounds since it would make more sense to take Karliah to the Rejuvenating Chambers or back at his place to rest but she did say she wanted to speak to him afterwards, but would she do so in front of Karliah? Only one way to find out.

I’m back, Suzume-dono.” Hiro said calmly after arriving back at the training grounds. He would place Karliah down gently beside the old woman before turning his attention towards her, waiting for her to discuss whatever it was she wanted to.

Cleo would blush, but other than that she didn't voice her complaint at his answer and would enjoy the brief travel before being placed down near Suzume-dono and she would quickly bow so she didn't get scolded by the woman. Other than that she would just wait in place sort of unsure what her position was in all of this, she knew he probably had to do with Hiro though seeing as the only reason she had been taught anything and kidnapped was because she accidentally mentioned knowing him. Still she wasn't upset or scared though him being here with her contributed to her feeling safe. "I wonder what that crazy lady wants now..." she thought o herself as she watched Suzume get up from the ground and make a show of stretching with a couple of pained groans as bones snapped in place.

------------------------

"Oh good you found your little girlfriend. Good good, I was testing you child and I am impressed able to hold your own against me even in this shadow of my youthful self tells me a lot about you" Suzume said before looking from him to Karliah and then pointing  with her free hand while she leaned on her her cane sheathe seeing as she no longer had a sword. "Even choosing to date a Cypher, your already thinking like an Isley good good, I hope you don't mind that I taught her somethings even though that's supposed to be your duty. Youngsters hmph, why back my day when you were courting someone you shared techniques and blended it together in advance in case one of you got knocked up. That way your children could already be prepped to fight in the future." she said going off on a tangent once again about how much better it was when she was young and beautiful. "Speaking of which have either of you had "The Talk" yet? The swords and the sheathes? No? Well that's not good." she said not even waiting for them to answer yes or no before assuming they hadn't already.

He couldn’t help but roll his eyes the moment Suzume started rambling again. What made matters worse was that she was talking about pregnancy and sex while Karliah was right beside her! Talk about embarrassing, before she could continue, however, Hiro would clear his throat. “Well before you start planning on marriage and how our kids will look, I need to clear up this misconception. Karliah and I are just friends. So I’m not “courting her” and we’ve certainly not discussed the swords and sheathes. So could you please stop talking like this in front of Karliah, pretty sure she’s getting uncomfortable right now. ” Hiro stated rather sternly hoping to get Suzume to stop all this nonsense. Sure he did in fact, have feelings for Karliah but this right now all this talk was a bit too much for the young silver knight, he hadn’t even had his first kiss yet! “On a different note, I’m glad that you see me worthy to carry the Isley name and I’ll do my best not to bring shame upon Xan-sensei.

"W-What! But I already taught her Isley Family techniques, tch how annoying." Suzume said before glaring at Karliah for misleading her into thinking that she was dating the boy, why else would she be saying such things about them spending time together training. She had even been in his house at least once judging from her slip about his bed, just how shameless were the youth of today sleeping together and not courting. "Well that leaves me with two options since I can't adopt her due to her clan, I could kill her to conserve the knowledge of my families techniques or you can start dating her right now." she said shifting her eyes back to Hiro wanting to see which option he preferred. Of course there was the fourth option, keeping her silent he could always attack her and kill her thus preventing the knowledge that she had taught Karliah Isley techniques from getting back to Xan.

---------------------------

"A-Ah..." Cleo was about to say something before Hiro had jumped in ahead of her, she was blushing with chakra somewhat because it was such a random thing to talk about. Still Hiro's "just friends" comment did make her sad and she would frown a bit her previously happy demeanor fading instantly as she didn't know why she was getting her hopes up clearly she was stupid there weren't any signs why would someone like him want someone like her. She would only end up dragging him down, besides no one ever wanted her, just kept her around because of pity or for other reasons. "No, don't think like that Cleo, he's at least your friend you should be happy with just that." She did know about the swords and the sheathes though not in those exact terms she had a more vulgar explanation told to her and something she had witnessed multiple times while living in the Alchemist section of the Tenshi Clan. But when Suzume made the statement about killing her she would reflexively take a step back putting Hiro in front of her. "W-Wait! Why kill me I wouldn't tell anyone and I-I don't want force Hiro into a relationship he doesn't w-want..." she hated the fact that she stuttered when she was nervous but how couldn't she be she didn't want to die not yet not before she could complete her dream.

Well, that escalated rather quickly. It was quite amusing how she had jumped to the conclusion that they were dating solely based on the fact that they hung around each other a lot so in truth she was at fault here not Karliah or himself, assuming Karliah didn’t say something that led the old woman to misinterpret it anyways, and now he was either have Karliah killed because she was an outsider or start dating her. Sure it probably would be easy for Hiro to take Suzume out due to the fact that she had no weapon but that wasn’t his style and he most definitely wasn’t going to allow her to kill Karliah so now he only had one option. “I mean I would’ve wished that this would’ve happened naturally and not forced upon us but as long as Karliah has no qualms with this, I’ll date her.” Hiro stated feeling a tad bit embarrassed about this entire situation but protecting Karliah from harm was the priority, besides he did like her so this wasn’t bad at all.
