Seira followed slowly, she walked behind the man, she thought about something to talk about while they walked, however she couldn't think of anything to talk about as she didn't know if she could relate to anything that Thurstan may be experiencing in his own life as she knew that his life was completely different from her own, though she didn't want to ask about it as she felt it wasn't her place to ask for such details.

Thurstan reached his little cabin. He opened the door for Seira to let her in while he prepares.

"Feel free to go inside and wait. There should be some water or food in there."

Thurstan said. He walked out back to start setting things up.

Seira sat down in one of the chairs inside the cabin and she put her arms onto the table before she put her head down as she waited patiently for Thurstan to finish what he was doing, Seira while she sat there could feel the cold of her right arm's armour piece and her memory went back to the day she received it from the mage instructor who said it would match her, she smiled at the fond memory before she shook her head and sat up straight so she could take a look at the cabin she was now sitting inside of.

Thurstan set up a bunch of test dummies he made out of wood. He decided that would be acceptable for now. He walked back inside and saw Seira, seemingly resting at the table. He pulled up a chair and sat down a few feet away from the table. He thought about asking what was wrong, as that was what he assumed was a friendly thing to do, but he decided against it.

"Everything is set up so far. I want you to show me what you've learned on the practice dummies, and I'll teach you what I think you need to learn."

He said. He stood up and walked back outside, where he began to create more test dummies as the ones he had set up would most likely be destroyed. He formed a ball out of some leaves and put it in place of a head on one of the dummies.

Seira got up off the chair before walking outside where she saw the dummies and internally she grimaced as she wondered how she'd show her skills on a test dummy, she walked up to the first one and raised her right hand before striking the dummy, however when her fist hit the dummy it held firm just like she had expected since she had no enchantments on her, Seira then stepped back and moved into her stance which put her left fist forward with her left leg, while her right fist sat near her body and her right leg was back, it was the basic of most stances. But she found it comfortable for when she was fighting something like a dummy rather than a human, Seira then moved against the dummy, her movements were graceful and slow but fluid and unrelenting. The dummy however split in two and Seira sighed in annoyance as she stopped and said.

"How is showing my skills on a test dummy going to help?"

Thurstan wached as she split the dummy in half. He looked at her as she asked her question, clearly bored.

"I want to see what you already know before I teach you anything new. If you don't like this option, we could always revert back to my original idea."

He said. He stood up and walked over to Seira.

"What was your original idea Thurstan?"

Seira asked as she relaxed herself and then watched as Thurstan approached her, she had an idea about what Thurstan could mean by his original idea, but she decided to wait and see before concluding whether she was right or wrong.

"Well originally I thought I could test your abilities in a one on one fight. But I decided this would be a safer approach. But if you want to, we can do my original idea."

Thurstan said. He unsheathed his katana and spun it around in his hand a bit before pointing it at her.

"If you do decide to choose my original idea, to make it more challenging for you, I will be using my katana."

He explained.

Seira smiled as she looked at the Katana in front of her and she raised her left hand before tapping the left circle on her hip and it expanded outwards, she then pulled out five Talisman before she closed the left circle and then raised her left hand so she was holding the Talisman like you would a throwing knife, she then threw all five Talisman into the air where they hovered and the paper dispersed before becoming small walls of light, Seira put her left arm through the first one and the symbols covered her arm, she then repeated the process for her right arm and both her legs before she walked through the last one which went over her upper torso.

Seira then stood there as she said.

"I guess I'll use my strengthening Talisman then"

Seira backed ever so slightly away from Thurstan before she moved into a completely different stance, her left leg was forward, her right leg was back, but her body was lowered close to the ground, her left arm went over her left leg and her right arm was raised to be a chest height but far enough back that it looked like she could be drawing a bow string.

Thurstan, still with his normal, blank expression, thought about this for a moment. There were two options for him. One, fight weakly, so he didn't injure Seira, or to fight regularly, which could, if he hit the right spot, potentially fatally injure her. He watched her movements and planned out what he would do if he chose the latter option.

"Should I hold off, or use all my power for this fight? Keep in mind, I could seriously injure you as I'm using a blade."

He said. He got his blade at the ready, his left arm at his side, his right arm, which held the blade was extended outwards, the blade pointing at the ground, so when he attacked, there would be more force in the upward swing.

"I appreciate the concern, but I could share the same worry about you, should I go easy on you?"

Seira said as she stood there obviously waiting for Thurstan to make the first move, however as she stood there her eyes looked over Thurstan's blade and then over his stance before her eyes turned to his wrist, his elbow, his shoulder and then moved onto the middle of his chest. But her eyes didn't stop there, her eyes were identifying weak spots in the human body making it clear that she knew her way around a hand to hand fight, but her caution at making a first move also made it clear she was concerned about the unknown abilities of the sparring partner in front of her.

Seira all the same however smiled and continued to wait as her eyes eventually went back to focusing on the bigger picture as if they were ready to pay attention to the smallest detail around her.

Thurstan watched her observe him, most likely observing his weak spots. He looked back up at her and quickly dashed at her, slashing her chest as he did. Now that he was behind her, he was prepared to slash at her back, but he decided to let her get an attack of her own in.

"I expected you to do so. This is a sparring match for me to see your abilities in combat, is it not?"

Seira raised her right arm to block the sword with her pitch black armour piece which made the sword bounce off, however as she saw him get behind her, she jumped into air and did a back flip only to put her left hand onto Thurstan's head as she smiled and said.

"Very fair point"

Seira giggled as she pushed off from Thurstan's head and landed on the ground behind Thurstan before she got up close and personal before striking at Thurstan's back as she said.

"Easy level fight it is"

Thurstan spun around the attack so he would be facing her back again. He slashed it twice before backing up a bit

"I didn't care for what you just did. But, it was a pretty interesting move. Not what I was expecting."

He said. He was somewhat enjoying the fight so far, but he wasn't sure of the outcome. Although he didn't like losing, he wouldn't mind it here, as for one, this is a training match. Not an actual life or death fight, and two, he wasn't really giving it his all.

Seira managed to block the first slash aimed at her, however the second slash glanced off her strengthening enchantment causing a bit of damage which caused Seira to jump backwards putting quite a lot of space between Thurstan and herself, though it was clear it was a reflex rather than on purpose. Seira then smiled and said.

"I'll take that as a compliment"

Seira ran towards Thurstan and as she got up close she raised her right fist to strike at Thurstan's face, however the attack suddenly stopped and Seira dropped to the ground before bringing up her left fist and landing it into the middle of Thurstan's chest, Seira then backed away as she smiled and said.

"Neither one of us is taking this seriously, but it's fun all the same"
