"Thanks for this and what?" Jeanne asked only sounding slightly rude rather than outright cold. Her exterior wasn't as hard as it was when the two first met but it was still an exterior that would take months to crack. As she ate she was quiet and seemed to have a set of formal matters in what she did as she ate. Pausing just to answer Kiriana, she decided to wait to continue until she got her question. It didn't seem as if she was too interested but she still listened nonetheless.


"Well... I was just wondering if you have someone out there that cares for you, a friend perhaps? Do you have that sort of someone? I ask only because it seems like you are alone." Kiriana asked her because on the inside she felt pain and loneliness. No one can go throughout thousands of years without experiencing it. Time was a harsh entity that loved to take away those that she had gotten close to. The pain only went away when she made friends who would be kind enough to be with her. It was this thought that went through her mind. No one can go throughout life without a friend.

Without an answer, Jeanne's jaw locked and a scowl quickly made itself comfortable on her face. Her fists tightened just as soon as her jaw locked, causing her to break anything in hand. There was never anyone there for her and it caused her to be so angry and lash out at anyone. At any second it seemed that her whole being would just snap into a fit of a rage. Her whole body was shaking with it already. Even her own parents never even set out to try to love her. Everything she is now was caused by her parents, even the fact that she never spoke to others to make any friends throughout her life. Now she didn't even have any interest in finding friendship anymore.

Kiriana noticed how uncomfortable Jeanne got when she mentioned the topic. She frowned and then looked down with a sorrowful expression. "I guess that this might be a very touchy subject to you so I'll just leave it with this comment. If you ever need someone to watch your back or someone you need to talk to or spar with you, I'll be happy to answer your call. I'll be that one person that you can call on. We don't even have to be friends." She continued eating her bento and when she finished, she closed the container and threw it away.

"I'll take the sparring. I'm not one to talk or depend on another." Jeanne snapped with a growl as she moved back to focusing on her food. Luckily her eating utensils seemed to be intact still. She remained quiet and angry looking but she wasn't being filled with rage anymore. Her body stopped shaking and was much less tense as she ate. It didn't take her long to finish her food so when she did, she nonchalantly threw it away and sat back down without a word. The rage hadn't completely seeped out of her and any physical pain she was feeling disappeared.

"As you wish but can I offer you some advice? In our earlier battle, I noticed the way you threw your cards at me and how you threw them looked effective but I can probably show you an easier much more fluid way of throwing them." She paused before holding her hands up. "Now, I know I might sound like I'm insulting the way you throw them but I'm not. Throughout my years training with the ninja of Japan, I noticed that every time they threw ninja stars, they always flew so fast and they worked in their favor. One of their ninja stars weight seem equivalent to the weight of one of your cards so if you threw it like them, your cards will fly smoother and faster as well as cause more damage. Can you show me how you throw your cards? I need to see a close up of your arm and hand movements so I can see." Kiriana got up from the place she was sitting to walk over to her.

(My. I had to use a card and really study my own hand for this one.)

"Hn? Hmph.....fine." Jeanne had gotten back up and threw her right hand to the side. Two cards appeared in her hand at that moment. She held the cards with her thumb, index, and middle finger. The middle finger only acted as more of a brace to keep the card up as it was slightly curled unlike the rest of her fingers, which were completely curled up. Her right arm was brought across her body in a curl, cards almost touching her left shoulder. In a gracious move she uncurled her arm then wrist and finally let the cards go as soon as her whole arm was straight. Not one card was released too early or too late. They all went where she aimed, straight.

(Lol, I had to do that too right now.)
Kiriana observed how she held her cards and then saw what she could do for a better throw. She walked up to the target that she threw her cards at and removed the cards from it. She placed them between the spaces of her thumb, index finger and middle finger.

"Okay, how you are throwing your cards are effective since you are used to doing it like you did now. How you can make it more potent is to add a few simple things. First, bend your fingers so your cards touch the palm of you hand, preferably the long sides." She did just that with her fingers. "Next, bend your wrist inward all the way or as far as you can before it gets uncomfortable, just enough before you can't." She did it again. "The next step is to bend your arm in." She did just that. "Now when you throw your cards make sure that you make a quick yet fluid motion. Unbend your arm so it snaps forward like you were to punch someone. The main focus after you do that is the quick flick of the wrist which is the most important part and it acts as an extra spring. If you do all the steps, this is what it ends up as." She followed the steps that she just said and threw the cards forward at the target again. As she flicked her wrist at the end before releasing them, they vanished from her hand and suddenly appeared in the boulder behind the target.

Before, the cards only cut through the target halfway, but with the steps, the power and speed allowed the cards to penetrate the target all the way and embed halfway through the solid rock. "Now you try on that target." She smile before picking the cards out of the boulder and handing them to Jeanne.

(A lot of writing and such! High five for you! Sadly I have to say that I'm going to shorten it quite a bit here.)

"Hm." Jeanne didn't say anything as she watched and also took her cards back. It wasn't like her to say or express anything. Any advice from another hurt her pride and actually saying or expressing something good about it hurt even more. She wasn't the person to go and quickly go around complimenting anyone on anything. It just wasn't her style and it most certainly wasn't in her personality. With a focused look, she went through the steps in her own mind and then visualized it herself. After a few moments she did just exactly what was just to her. Every step and piece of advice taken in and used. It was true that she was mostly a quick learner when it came to anything that had to do with combat. With the strength in her own body, which much of wasn't used, the cards did much damage to everything it touched, destroying the target all together.

Kiriana watched her as she took her advice and used it this time when she threw her cards and smiled when she saw the target explode. "There you go, you can surprise your enemies with that. Maybe throw them like you usually do and then when they are off guard, unleash this on them. Keeping your talents and skills unknown to your opponent is one reason why information is one of the best things to have." Kiriana stood up and grasped the hilt of her sword. "For example, if I did a normal quick draw slash then this is the result." She drew and cut a boulder target in front of her. It sliced halfway deep from one side to the other, left to right. "I can do that much damage with a normal slash but if I do this and do it then watch the results." She put her left leg back and her front leg forward in a stance. She drew her sword again for another slashing motion on a different boulder, this time putting her weight behind it. The boulder was sliced clean through before shattering from the pressure behind the force. "Surprise your opponent and catch them off guard. It works well."

"I know. That's why I observe my opponents movements, style, and potential before using any real offense." Jeanne muttered before letting her cards disappear into the light. It was true that she fought that way but when it came to their sparring time, Jeanne had herself a problem against Kiriana. The battle was hard and forced her to just go out there. She wasn't even close to admitting that, ever. She also wasn't going to admit that Kiriana was impressive in battle. There was no bother in even showing it. The only show was saying how great it was and staying with her for a while. Jeanne had a feeling that she may be able to hang around Kiriana but had no thought's on actually befriending her. Trusting her was something that was even further away than simple befriending.

"It is good to know that there are other fighters that do that. So many current fighters or warriors don't take that sort of thing into consideration anymore and I am sad that it has come to that. You on the other hand understand that and I'm glad that you at least take it into account. I know of a few others but you are the strongest that I have fought with since all of them." Kiriana was honest and spoke the truth to Jeanne. She knew that there was some sort of acquaintance connection between them now but that was it so far. She hoped that they could become friends but the current status was good so far.

It's been awhile since he star honing his skills in magic. As a traveler that does nothing but to grant people's wishes and fend and kill those who wish to kill him. Living for nearly a century and two decades, he thought that it was probably time to hone his skills once more. He went to the Combat Room, using a teleportation magic, and readied his weapons for his own training.

After a few hours of warming up like levitating a boulder, summoning spells and creating new ones along the way, he decided to take a little break for awhile. Summoning up a bento, he walked towards to a straight and clean place and started laying out a blanket and the delicious foods that he had made himself. As he was about to eat, He saw 2 girls, conversing with each others. He assumed they were good friends and they looked like they need a break. Packing up his things, he walked towards them and started to converse with them.


Xerxes Blade

"Hello, Ladies. Both of you looked like you both needed a little break, care to join me with some food the I had prepared?" He asks them.

"It's all about bloodshed these days. And I have to be honest here, of course I am. A few years of getting into trouble with the wrong people results in that." Jeanne smirked as she spoke, acting like the cocky person she was. Her expression was a smug one as she crossed her arms in that smugness. Though what she said was true, she said the last sentence as if were a trophy. It wasn't intended to come out like that but it was something that really had helped her gain enough strength to really take care of herself in most situations.

"Hm? Oh. So, there's more people here. Sorry, but we ate already." After speaking to the other woman, Jeanne actually took note of another being around them. She did hear him but wanted to reply to someone she actually became comfortable in speaking with. Though she didn't trust Kiriana and didn't want to be here friend. When she spoke to the new comer, her voice was ten times colder then when it had been with the other woman. A frown set itself on Jeanne's face when she looked at him. Her smug look only towards Kiriana.
