Cell-2 Training Ground

Recommended Posts

Marik would clap his hands together in joy showing he was very pleased with their answer's , "conditions well if you dont mind id like to sit down and have tea as family , my students are like my children afterall" he'd say as those words rolled off his tongue. The elderly Vizard's body language was one of a relaxed nature obviously happy with what was said , he would then turn his back twoard them facing the green valley and the large patch of tree's still frozen over with snow. Marik didn't want to judge them how he judged sairento he' wanted to take a different approach this time arround , a test of skill instead of power this time.  "but i am going to need to test both your powers , so that means you need to come at me as if you mean to kill me" his voice stern and sharp like an instructor should be showing this wasn't going to be his first rodio.

he would then again point to Dante then Aurora "so who's first or will you double team me , also where would you like to fight? the snow cover forest area over there? This valley? or the air" he'd say as he would lean his staff in each direction the point twoard the sky. "ill be sure hold back enough to evenly match you both in strength , id also like to see the depths of your hollowfication" he would say turning his head to the side giving them a side view of his face as he awaited their answer once more.

Dante stood facing Marik as Aurora walked infront of him bowing and asking permission to face Marik first. He was impressed by her determination and growth she had demonstrated the last few day. 

I cant wait to see what she will come up with next. 

Dante bows, I grant you permission. Show him what you got. A smile on his face as he uttered the words. Before looking back at Marik. Well seems she is first.

Marik would begin walking down back twoard the valley , "come now please" he'd say in a sing song voice making a motion with a hand for her to follow him.  "you never said where you wanted to be tested you maiden" he'd say rather curtly showing respect to the young woman , marik was a very old gentleman for the most part most peoples opinions change in battle though. "Dante i suggest you come , she might perform better with you present"  he would say with a teasing tone implying a relationship between the two.

Marik would continue walking till they where on the flat area of the valley , "so let's begin i will let you know when your test is over" he would say facing her taking about ten steps back standing straight and tall his smile now slowly dropping into a straight line and his eyes slowly opening his eyes to reveal his shining silver like eyes. his face the absolute image of sternness and authority "come at me as if you mean to kill me~" he'd say calmly his voice seemingly having grown a little deeper , as it wasnt a suggestion but a command.

Marik wouldn't assume a battle position but his hand would lower to just above the center of gravity on his staff , meaning he would be most likely defending ; or giving someone a few whacks today.

A small curve of a smile moves on Auroras lips and nods in respect :


If I may say, In real situation you can never choose where to fight .

Her smile vanished as faded as it appeared , she walked and followed the rest of the way in silence .

You are wrong though, I don't rely on anyone ... but my sword. She thought.

Wind moves into her hair and kimono, she kept her chin high looking into Mariks eyes which were shining with power. She took her sword out holding it with two hands in front of her showing no sign of fear or doubt . Observing his every position and calculating every possible move, she starts running in flash steps towards Marik , her feet goes light with every step, she put her foot on a stone and jumps in air, her sword flashes in the sun and reflects on Mirak's eyes , hoping it would give her an opening to strike, she swinged  down her sword aiming for his head .

Marik would train his eye's upon the young raven haired vizard he remained stationary , he wanted to see her skill level based off her first move and he gauged correctly. she was quick with her flash step something that was rather notable and something to build upon , but marik assumed that this girl didn't think he took her seriously with that flash of light it took his sight but not his ability to sense her presence. Marik would close his eyes as he raised his staff above his head with both hands bracing the blow stopping her sword strike , a simple feat an due to his staff actually housing his zanpakuto his staff would be virtually unscathed. Marik's eye's where trained on in the of her blade making impact his face still as serious as ever apparently he needed to send her a clear message to get more intense , so maybe a little taste of fear would elicit that.

Marik's lips would slightly part as he stated the name of a fairly powerful kido "Hyōga Seiran" upon these words a massive wave of ice would rocket forth from the area Aurora had struck on Marik had struck the cold threaten to freeze her and surrounding area. It is known to be strong enough to destroy a group of Menos Grande with its sheer power and break through Bakudō #81. Dankū, but Marik had toned it down just enough for her clothes or just small parts of her body to be frozen in certain areas. One thing he couldn't fix was tne amount of force behind the kido. But all in all she'd live.

The force of Mariks kido throws her back a good few meters as she tries to avoid it's full force. She tries to keep her balance spinning mid air to land on her knees with her hand placed firmly on it. But ice where faster than her moves and captures half of her body including her sword in the ice, she calls upon her zanpakuto. Yukiko! ice around her breaks and shatters as her sword changes into shikai form a long red sword now visible. Pieces of ice cutting her hands and legs only gives her more will power to fight harder, her bracelets shines blue and her eyes starts glowing as she shouts Yukiko Kieru (vanish) before the particles of shattered ice reach the ground she vanishes and appears behind Marik. Sits and spins aiming for his legs with her long sword in hope of breaking his defense for a deadly strike after.

Marik's eye's would widen as he witnessed the raven haired woman dissapear , it was rather shocking at first but he didnt have time to ponder her speed as he was snapped back to reality by the light buzz accompanied by shunpo. Marik himself would have no time to make a simple move against the young vizard she was to close which meant he needed to take her seriously as well. Marik would use the only Hoho techniqe he had ever learned Utsusemi the basic of this move where the practitioner moves at great speed to avoid an attack, leaving an afterimage which can appear to have taken damage. The after image would appear to be turning as the blade made contact , the look of terror on it's face was genuine and so was her blade carving into it's legs but it was simply an illusion of something to good to be true. 

Marik would in fact be behind the young maiden his staff alighned with the back of her head prepairing to give her the biggest thumps upon the noggin , it would be similar to that of someone playing pool. Marik would make a quick jabbing motion with his staff , now this would seem like a light tap but this should hold just enough force to send her tumbling foward and since she's crowched and he left his tail coat on the after image. With the after image now fading should this attack land she'd be sent rolling forward tangled in his tail coat like a giant ball.

Aurora hears the staffs appraoching from behind that she jumps and spins in the air like feather and lands easily on a knee and hand ! glanced at Dante over the vally who was watching sternly  . the old man was enjoying to watch her stuggle, like watching his pet playing around . she felt humilated , and angry . her reiatsu pours out of the breacelets , captured all her body ! holds her sword in one hand in front of her in attack stand and moves her left hand back shouting : Yukiko Tama ( ball ) , a ball of compressed reiatsu energy shaped in her hand as her anger was accelerating she flash steps to the old man jumps and aim his head again to land her Tama.

Marik's attack would miss entirely as the girl bolted forward and upward into the air , where she had suspend herself giving a display of acrobatic ability. He was dually impressed that she dodged his attack as the jabbing movement he had perform was a short compound movement meaning it was silent and swift , 'did she predict my movements' he'd in his mind question her skill's now peaking his highest interest. He would keep his eyes trained on the girl but give a sparing glance at Dante as he put the pieces together and felt a splash of guilt , Marik was being hard on the wrong person was that man responsible for her skill level being like this or was this of her own fruition. Marik's eyes would slowly narrow as he allowed the events before him to transpire before this girl was an anomaly that needed further study. Those bracelet's from earlier had began glowing they weren't what Marik thought they where at all , he assumed they where to keep her hollow in check but it appeared they helped her regulate her flow of power as well.

Marik would observe her carefully as she gathered power in her right hand in the form of a bright burning ball of power , a light breeze being kicked up jostling the long silver haired vizard his calm and stern face still in place but somehow looking even more serious than before. Marik was in fact impressed with the young girl but her demon lay dormant within did it not respond to her feelings like other's? had she made it submit already? and if she did that meant she'd have to make the girl fear for her life and force the beast to grasp for the reign's. Marik would wait as the young female vizard used a rapid succession of shunpo to appear before him marik would grit his teeth as he lean back a little ways before using shunpo to evade , he needed only a few moments to himself to set the stage but that also meant blocking Dante off from the battle field marik had just the thing simple sweet and a lost art. The smell of burnt hair filled Marik's nostril's as he realized he hadnt fully dodged her attack but no matter he would examine the damage later , Marik now on her right side would raise his left hand similar to how a monk would pray raise his index and middle finger as he channeled his spirit energy to create a construct.

A three dimensional white cube would rapidly begin to form around Aurora in an attempt to entrap her , he would throw a good amount of spirit energy into it not to much but just enough to hold her for awhile so he could begin his next movement. Provided he had trapped her he would turn away and face the onlooking dante and give him a serious look no words needed to pass between them it was clear Marik was telling him "STAY PUT" this would be marik's attempt to draw her hollow out. Marik would use shunpo to put some distance between him and Aurora before his spirit energy began to whip about , power full ominious winds washed over the valley as his hollow mask began materializing his normally comforting spirit energy had become warped and twisted one could say almost evil in nature. "darkness and light come together! I beseech thee open the gates of the pearly city!-" his voice would ring out as his mask was half formed on his face his voice sounding warped and demented.

 

ulquiorra___hollow_mask_by_shuriame-d35s

A ball of flames would appear in front Marik that grew to the size of a basket ball as his mask finished forming "So I may unleash the might hell!!" he would finished as a large torrent of flames washed forth growing in size by the passing second as it sped twoard Aurora , A colosal wall of flames that ate everything in it's path. Marik had once again toned it's power down as he didn't want to reduce her to ashes but scare her , but either way after this attack if she was still standing in some form or fashion she'd pass.

provided she where to avoid the cube these event would occur still but Marik would waste no time double checking with dante he would take to the air and rain fire and hell from above. it was known how much an extremly weakened version of this would do but it still was pretty leathal as it was marik's self made kido.

powers used:

 

Great Spiritual Energy: Marik has a fairly large supply of spirit energy at his disposal allowing him to cast many kido in battle without quickly tiringin the heat of battle

Aurora looks around the cube for a crack with a serious look in her eyes , moves her sword on the walls in a butterfly  move but it is useless. her anger is accelerating as she cant get herself out  . her rings burn like never before . as his Jingoku Kanon Kido  pushed her badly backward and smashed her to a wall , it burns her skin and clothes along with her long hair as she falls down half naked , all her body was bleeding in sever burning that she loses her sight . 

half of a mask shaped on her face , along with long black hair again as she put her hands on the floor puling her body up . the reiatsu around her forearm rings turns color to black with red glow . and it captures all around her in an instant . 

        may mask DAnte.jpg

 

hoy , hoy ! what is all the noise about ? 
 

a huge Tama shapes in her hand with black reiatsu as she flash steps to the wall and smash it . she flash steps right toward the old man, gazing into his eyes as if burning his soul as she was trying to consuming his very own , huge amount of reiatsu !

you must be ashamed of your pathetic paper walls  . ky ky ky yaaaa 

screams in horrifying laughter keeping her sword front attempting to hit the old man right in the heart ! as at the same time another ball of Tama was shaping in her hand with the black reiatsu she possessed  was a huge black ball which even Dante could feel the immense vibes of the destructive ball of energy ! if she could absorbed Miraks reatsu it would end to another disaster!

Marik would brace himself as he was struck by the girls ball of power it would send him flying backwards his feet digging into the ground creating little trenches as he came to a stop , his chest was lightly charred and smoking his upper half was almost completely exposed and only a fourth of his hollow mask remained. Marik was astounded he never thought she'd be able to damage him so much although something wasn't right and it was those damn bracelets for sure , a minute ago she was fourth seat level at best and now she was fighting with the spirtual force of a high tiered lieutenant she had passed marik's test with flying color's. Now that his evaluation of her was done he would have his little bit of fun and put her hollow in it's place as well , her body was trained indeed but it could only hold so much power before it began to shutdown so marik would push her there or subdue her. The smell of burnt flash flooded Marik's nostril's as raised his head his serious face gone and replace once again with his smile which meant hell was about to be unleashed upon Aurora's hollow , he would being ripping any clothes that remained on his upper torso that hadnt burned off away and onto the ground leaving his bare upper body.

"papers walls now?you mean the bait to lure you out" he'd say in his chipper tone as marik truly began to feel the internal damage her blow had dealt , Though his face was still expressing joy he was in pain that blast had cracked a few rib's and damaged his sternum. "i purposely made them weak enough for a hollow of your low grade to break through" he'd say obviously goading the creature into coming to him and hide his deception , marik had paced a hand on his chest and began using kaido to mend his bones leaving the charred flesh in place not wanting her to get wise to him healing himself. Upon the injury's being quickly mended he would tighten his grip on his staff causing all the wood to fade revealing his white and red zanpakuto that held the shape of a katana.

"but since she has passed with flying colors , im going to teach you a lesson" he would say his body now glowing with a bright brilliant white aura , he would rush the girl with his full speed and make a barrage of stabbing motions some would be feints while in reality his stabs would be aimed at her thighs , forearm and shoulders. Should she make any attempt's at moving her blade he'd stab at her wrist threatening to sever the muscles within. in the event that she dodges he wouldn't waste a moment and begin chasing after her with a volley of swift swings attempting to force her on the defensive for a little bit , or litter her body with a multitude of flesh wounds.

Dante stands overlooking the events unfolding before him. He was releasing his reiatsu as it pored out from him to keep the rings on Aurora's wrists in control and managing her power slowly letting them loose the effect of control in order to have her release more of her power. The training was starting to turn into that of a real fight and seeing them take some serious amounts of damage weighed heavily on him. He normally is the one to jump in head first and play the roll of protector and having his Vice Commander do it was a big change to his normal way of doing things. He felt so sure of it, it never even crossed his mind as she went off to spar against Marik. 

He was impressed with the display of power from both of them, but seeing Aurora loose control over her hollow once again was a serious matter. The battle was becoming dangerous and if left unchecked given the present state of damage suffer from both parties some serious harm could come from it. He made a promise to make her gain control over her hollow but now he let her turn and be controlled by it. The sight of her damage also made it hard for him to keep himself in check. Mixed emotions ran through him, pride seeing his Vice fighting her hardest. Also pain at seeing her get hurt. He knew now was the time to stop this. 

THAT'S ENOUGH!!!!!!!

Dante releases all his spiritual power in an instant as the grass part and gets torn from the ground around him. He focuses his power in a compressed manner completely on Aurora's bracelets making them glow brightly on her wrists almost blinding as they shined pushing back her power and trying to sealing it. Small cracks appeared on them from the power fighting for balance before one cracked and fell from her arm.

He flash stepped grabbing hold of her as Marik unleashed his attacks. He was fast but as he took so much time focused on the brackets he was now in line of the attacks standing between Aurora and Marik. Marik's blade would pierce into his shoulder and thigh as he flash stepped away appearing back in the same spot he had just left. The grass and dust still moving around the air as if he never left the only difference being the small drops of blood falling into the sand below his feet. Holding Aurora to his chest gently as to not hurt her more than her wounds already did. He was breathing heavily and uncomfortable with his wounds slowly burning his flesh as he looked at Aurora's face just before the mask scattered and fell to pieces. She was half naked, covered in a torn bloody kimono but still conscious and in pain but not sure what had happened after she had her hollow take control unwillingly. He felt relived as he turned and looked towards Marik.

I made it in time. I think that is far enough for one today.

The wind would Blow against marik's entire body furiously as he rushed foward with unimaginable speed his silver hair appear like a blurr , Marik's eye's would zone in one Auroras arms and legs as he poised his blade preparing to strike with surgeon like precision. Although his plans to immobilize the young female where completely derailed in a matter of seconds just as his blade was about to reach it's mark Dante entered the fray , the young man had jumped in front of Marik's attack this wasn't good at all. One could consider his new pupil's act even a little foolish due to their height difference but marik had to give him credit for showing valor for his freind , even though at this point he was certain they where lovers. Marik had aimed for the young woman's thigh's , forearms and shoulder's having alighned Dante and Aurora's body shapes Marik would end up stabbing the boy through the heart due to him having caculated his strikes for her smaller body.

Marik would flex every muscle in his body as the tip of his blade came in contact with the clothes on Dante's back , a small shaockwave followed by a little bit of wind was the end result due to marik suddenly stopping after advancing at such a pace. His smile still in place as he sheathed his blade causing it to glow and the wood that encased it to materialized once more turning it back it's his walking stick once more , "your more than right about that it's been over two thousand years since ive drawn my zanpakuto , she passed with flying colors now as for her wounds" he'd say circling around actually needing his walking stick his age showing through as he was trembling slightly his walking stick giving his old bones support. Marik would reach out his hand as it was enveloped in a lime green aura , He was attempting to use kaido on her to speed of her healing then all she would need is rest. Should dante allow him he would gently place his hand on her forehead and begin pulse his spirit energy through her in tandem with her heart beat. The burns and cuts she's recieved would all slowly begin to heal within a few seconds of treatment.

Once done marik would remove his hand and look at Dante "you'll need to pardon this old body power isn't everything if you havent held a blade in so long , would you mind if we discussed my judgment of the situation over tea?" marik needed a breather and time to relax "who knows if she can push me that far i wonder if you can make me use my shikia? ill be back in my prime condition in no time with you to" he'd say letting out a rather playfull laugh.

Dante gently held on to Aurora, when he moved and softly placed her down on a patch of green grass. He removed his light blue haori and waved it in the air spreading out before he placed it gently down covering Aurora leaving her face exposed. He got onto his knees and made sure she was comfortable as he looked at Malik seeing the lime green aura he nodded to him. Malik settled next to her and placed his hand on her forehead as she was still in pain, the glow pulsed bringing relieve to her face. Dante looked on intently feeling her reiatsu stabilize and her hasted breathing settle. Malik then removed his hand, the glow fading from it. 

Dante listened to the old vizards proposal. He was still focused on Aurora waiting for her to say something before he would answer. He still felt worried and filled with admiration for her incredible determination from the fight that just took place. Marik's words of him being pushed by her was a reminder of how far she had come in such a short span of time. He also knew the old man was taking her seriously and that he himself would not be able to hold back against Marik if they were to go at it. The fight replying in his mind, while he stared at Aurora.

a blurry picture of Dantes face slowly gets clear , who was looking at her with worried eyes, kneeling by her side . besides him the old man in white leaning on his staff smiling warmly at her.

a frown crawled on her eyebrows as she tried to gather as much memory as she could . she remembered her test with the powerful old man and her anger for being looked down on then nothing . she knew what it meant, the hollow have captured her soul again . and she was there down on the ground with no feeling or sense in her muscles for being drained out of energy badly , even though her wounds have been healed perfectly . she looked away , couldnt bear Dante see her like that again after promising so many times not to be weak again .

- my sword ... !

she reached for her Zanpakuto which was by her side . holds on it and hardly pulls her body up trying to step but she stumbles on her sword , keeping herself from falling digging it in to the sand . she immediately moves a hand to Dante stooping him from reaching for her to help her stand . her hands shakes on the handle of her sword trying to pull her body up again , it was a display of misery and shame for her , she looked down as her long black hair falls on her face covering it .

- I would like to walk back alone . 

holds tighter on the swords handle .

Dante watched Aurora trying to stand on her own clutching at her sword for support.

CrbrKOKVIAAS5Lu.jpg.c84c5bae80cc7550185629e317b4ae46.jpg

He understood how she felt, He clenched his fist and tried to act normally, knowing time alone would be better for her right now. She had a lot to process after all. He adjusted his kimono and scarf rapped around his neck covering his face a little, after all his haori left placed around Aurora's shoulders. Cherry blossoms rained down onto him as the cold breeze from the mountain gently blew them out of the nearby tree. He slowly turned to Marik his blue eyes squinted and his indigo hair blown over his face.

We should probably head out first to my Mansion and get refreshed. I will have tea ready for us in the tea room. I will have one of our prepared rooms made ready for you.

Dante waited for Marik to join him, he looked back at Aurora one last time before walking back to the mansion.

Aurora was ashamed that she left mansion like that , specially leaving Alia . it is not her nature to ignore people or disrespect them . but also cant stand people with no manners . Youta was too much for her to take. she was swinging her sword around and practicing basic attacks for her these are the most fundamental rules for a good swords mastery . no matter how many kido or techniques you learn , you can never apply them the best if you dont know how to swing your sword .

Dante sits on the rock behind Aurora looking at her. He used flash step to get there and masked his aura. He looked at her swinging her sword admiring her technique. He felt it was good for her to warm up a but before he would speak. 

Aurora... He smiled wide knowing she did not know he was there as he masked his spiritual pressure. 

He got of the rock and walked over to her standing beside her. 

Now. Today I am going to help you with your flash step. we need to increase your speed as much as possible since you also dont posses any normal kiddo techniques this will be the best form of managing those situations when the threat of attack is close. 

This technique to me is the most important one of all, it allows you to manage and dictate a fight in a way that can be to your advantage. The technique can be used to move behind enemies, show off speed, get away from a fight, or straight up end a fight before a sword is even drawn. 

Dante looked Aurora in the eyes with a serious look on his face. 

Now the technique as such is very powerful but it has a big limitation. You cant avoid things in your way easily or change direction. With some practice you can make small adjustments or move your body but its still not a guarantee things will go as you want. So in addition to gaining the flash step we will also work on what I call accelerated flash correction. A new technique I have been thinking about based on flash step. But more on that later. 

Now first let start with a demonstration. 

Dante gathers reiatsu on the bottom of his feet. He starts by flash stepping around the area at incredible speed. He moves around Aurora before stopping at the place he first stood.

This is a basic flash step. The ability to move very fast. You might notice my movements are in one direction before arriving at a set destination before moving on to the next position. There is a delay after each time I arrive at one destination as you can seriously injure yourself if you try moving out of the normal line between point A the start and point B the end of a single movement before arriving at my destination. This is something you know now its to increase its speed and then the distance in a single movement. Then the amount of times you can do it keeping the same speed with out tiring out. 

This is a more advance technique after you master the basic flash step.

In a blink of the eye he was behind Aurora having touched her with the back of his sword on the upper part of her chest just below her neck and then her back as he stood behind her.

That is called Senka ( Flash Blossom) its an advance form of the normal flash step and something you will achieve with precision over time. This allows you to directly attack ones "Saketsu" or the Chain of Fate, it is what binds a soul to a living body. and "Hakusui" the source of a Shinigami's spiritual pressure in one, swift strike. 

Now let us Practice these before advancing to more techniques involving flash step. 

Dante moved to the rock and took a seat on it watching Aurora.

Auroa focuses on her feet and gathers reiatsu under. she could feel the pressure and the ease to move she aimed for the fallen tree at the far end of the , she thought it might be fun , wind moves into her hair as she flash steps to the tree but the air force is more than she could imagine and she loses balance ,stumbles and rolls on the ground , she stands up immediately can feel pain on her elbow and ankle .but she still gathers her reiatsu and aims for the rock, she then starts flash stepping and she manage to keep her control hardly but her shoulders were shaking still with pressure , as she ends the steps she feels tried and it is just her second step . she puts hands on knees and breath deeply , something in her way of flash stepping isn’t right . right then wind moves into her hair as it brushes the sweat off her cheek . she tries the steps over and over again but each time she falls , stumbles or cant stop in time , she hit badly to the rocks or trees at the far end of training ground . 

she stops as she is breathing deeply, puts hands on her knees , holding herself on feet hardly as her reiatsu is draining with each fashstep .

I have no other way … I need your help …. Yukiko kaiho ( release ) !

her sword turns into a long red sword as her Zan gives her reiatsu to her and she hears her whisper on her ear : the wind …

Got it …

She flashsteps again with more reiatsu thanks to Yukiko giving her more spiritual energy  ,  this time holds his body in a more aerodynamic style as head is a bit ahead of her body … she could move easier this time but it still has pressure on her her ankles… she stops , take a deep breath …

Think Aurora , think …. That’s it … not only I should know when to avoid wind with aerodynamic body shape but also I have to know how to use it in my advantage … I should choose the best way to maneuver around the area with the help of wind

she then take her position , gathers her reiatsu and runs with the force of wind as she moves further wind makes her steps faster and stronger also pretty easier and she manages to finish her flash steps more accurate .

 yes … this time the combination …

she moves in flash steps combining her aerodynamic style and wind support techniques , it was amazing like she was flying , she could move very fast around the training ground without getting tired … then suddenly a memory shines in her mind …

she was running on a green hill , running down , opened her arms , screaming in happiness :

I am flyyyyying …

She stops and gasps as the memory gave her a bad headache …. Her eyes were wide open in shock … breathed deeply as she looked back at Dante still watching her with his serious look .She gathers all the reiatsu she could and smiles:

now I should show him… I know how to fly ….  flash blossom !!

 Aurora aims for a tree ,gathers the reiatsu Yukiko granted her under her feet , flash steps towards the tree. Even though she was tired she persisted but it wasn’t as fast as it is supposed to be and made her disappear from the for a moment. It was more like multiple disappearances appearing in a line. She tries and tries but it seemed like she was just repeating her flash steps in a faster version but not fast enough for the Flash Blossom.

Gahh… , it is harder than it looks!

Takes a deep breath and looks over the field to Dante. His presence was more than a motivation for her, he was the one who knew all her weaknesses and was polishing her strength to be under her control for her benefit. I wont let you down Hirako Sama. She stood still for a moment closing her eyes and focusing on gathering more reiatsu. She could feel the pressure under her feet as she focused harder and harder, sweat pouring down her face as she slowly took big breaths. She moves forward at an incredible speed momentarily before she looses control over the pressure on her body and stumbles on the ground, dust and leaves covering her kimono.

Damn … too much reiatsu! I need to focus harder on control.

Pain was riddling her on her body, it was building and building throughout the days training as she had already taken lots of minor injures due to the earlier training she did. Yukiko could still provide her with good amount of reiatsu but as long as she didn’t know how to control her spirit power it was not much useful for her to prevent injuries. She kept running and falling. Going too slow or too fast and for no reason whatsoever anytime she fell down she had a glance over toward Dante. Trying to make it seem like she did not get hurt. She didn’t want him to see her fall for he was more than her mentor now he was her idol. His gentle attitude towards her and his friends was something Aurora lacked. He even watched on as she persisted and kept his patience with an encouraging look on his face while she kept going. She was always rushing in to everything with no patience and she knew it. She closed her eyes once more and gathered all the reiatsu she needed. She dashes forwards flying towards the fallen tree, then a picture appears to her …

She was running, down the same hill it was dark and she was scared, … She could hear the screams behind her and smell of fire and burned bodies … She runs faster then suddenly she stumbles over a small rock hidden in the tall grass and she falls down the hill …

She breathes deep and with haste as she appears near the tree… She was wet sweating profusely, her kimono feeling heavy on her body. Not only because her body was under pressure or her injuries and over use but also because of the flash of memories and the headache it caused! She knew she could do the Flash blossom, a small smile appeared on her lips, hiding her headache as she faced Dante.

Dante stood up from the rock and walked over to Aurora. 

Well done. You have mastered the flash step and flash blossom. You now have an understanding of the advantages and risks of using this techniques. Now we go on to a more advance technique called. Way of Onmitsu. This is a movement within flash step that is so fast that it leaves an afterimage behind. This technique can even make it seem like the afterimage took damage like bleeding. It's primary use is to be used to fool an opponent into making mistakes or thinking they have seceded with and attack leaving them open or off guard. 

Now I will demonstrate it for you. 

Dante gathers a lot of reiatsu under his feet before moving around Aurora at even more speed than before. He was leaving afterimage's placed around her looking as if they were going to attack her. The copies remained there for a few split seconds before vanishing looking as if they flash stepped forward. Dante stopped next to Aurora while some of the afterimages was still there and touched her on her shoulder. 

This is the real me. 

All the afterimages disappeared one after another before only Dante remained.  

Crazy technique right. Even I have not mastered it to its completion yet. It takes a massive amount of reiatsu to maintain and took me a long time to get to this level. Im pretty capable in it though. A good way to keep increasing your speed so don't worry if its not on the same level as mine. One or two afterimages is you goal. Then just keep practicing and over time you will see it increase. 

Dante had a few drops of sweat formed on his forehead and cheeks as he turned around and walked back to the rock taking a seat on it looking at Aurora.

This technique was so amazing that it left Auroras mouth wide open in shock. She felt confident a few minutes ago that she could learn how to control the amount of reiatsu and above all her bracelet was calm and easy and she haven’t provoked her hollow with her efforts even if she had flash backs of new memories streaming into her but now with Dante's performance on the Onmitsu (After Image) technique she lost a bit of her previous confidence. Apart from the fact that she got worried for him as she noticed the sweat on his forehead and she knew it is mostly because of Dante's control over her cycle of spiritual energy balance and the massive drain on his reiatsu caused by the using the technique. She could not imagine how hard it could be for him to handle it all while teaching her.

You are going to do this Aurora… You have to.

She closed her eyes once more and focused, feeling the reitsu cover and accumulate under her feet as much as she did for Flash Blossom technique and just kept adding more and more before she flash steps around the area disappearing and appearing everywhere but still it was not enough to make an after image of her self. She tried to add more reiatsu at first, the drain on her reiatsu took a huge toll on her each time she preformed the flash steps trying to make the technique come to life.

She found herself shaking in pain, her knees and feet strained under the amount of pressure she was under over the use of the high speed flash steps. She lost control as she fell down on to the ground badly scraping her knees and elbows trying to lessen the fall as her speed was so high. She stood up and looked down to her knees, blood slowly dripping down it and her fingers as she had a cut on her right arm also. She takes her handkerchief out of her kimonos inner sleeve pocket she had made and bandages her arm with her other hand and gritted on her teeth. She looked back and saw Dante's worried expression on his face before she stood upright taking deep and heavy breaths trying to calm herself and focus her reiatsu. She took a few minutes gathering reiatsu under her feet again and concentrating on the feeling balancing it and moving it slowly trying to gain more control over her ability to control the output and density of her reiatsu.

She leaps forward moving with a high speed again creating a shadow of her clothes colors behind her but not an After Image, not even close to it to the technique Dante displayed. She gets angry and adds a huge amount of reiatsu to her feet which was a huge mistake. She felt her muscles screaming and tearing before she stopped and stood still, rubbing her upper legs trying to massage them feeling the pain coursing through her body. She thought about the very first seconds she used the technique in trying to think about how to make it work. She flashsteps again and suddenly took off a very clear After Image appeared . it made her excited as she tried to keep control and make more she puts all her  concentration on her body and feet to take the increasing amount of reiatsu pressure so it made her lose her focus on the technique and planned destination before she hit herself hard on the rock face in front of her.

She could feel blood in her mouth. She stood up with her shaking knees and lots of bruises all over her body because of the impact. She knew if she showed any signs of pain Dante would stop the training. She swallowed the blood in her mouth tasting its texture made her angry and nauseous as she wanted to keep on going. She took off towards the open space in a flash leaving behind an after image then one more happy for the results she tries to push her self more but her energy is drained . stopping in the middle of the field out of breath made her even more angry . She glanced behind her as the last image disappeared and looked at Dante happy with her accomplishment at learning the technique. She then looked up at the blue sky. A golden eagle was flying high in the sky searching for pray. In the clear sky of the spring morning .

am can do it. 

She takes a deep breath as she closes her eyes. Yukiko puts a hand on her shoulder and whispers in her ear.

First you just need to gather enough reiatsu and you could make an image like just a few seconds ago. You just need to add a bit more to make it clear and more practical.

Second. Never lose focus on the destination,

last but not least let your body flow with the movement don't fight it and let your reiatsu move through you like an eagle in the air.

She opens her eyes while concentrating on a huge amount of reiatsu moving and gathering under her feet as she flash steps toward Dante… the wind moving in her hair in high speed as everything felt as if it slowed down in motion around her.

Suddenly  another flash back appears to her

 

 the memory of holding a burned corpse in her arms though she couldn’t tell who the persons body was, if it is male or female but she could feel clearly the sharp claws of sorrow digged deep in her heart . big tears were falling down her cheeks as She looks up into the sky and cries out. 

Nooooooooooo!!!!!!

A mysterious feeling of revenge imprisoned her heart . her rage moved into her feet as she runs faster with a frown . she incredible speed made her image triples, one disappears in the mid movement just when she draws her sword, and the other two seemed as if they wanted to attack Dante as they swung down with their swords but before reaching him they disappeared. Small strings of Dante's hair moves as one of the images passing by him at speed looked as if it could touch his hair with it's sword. Aurora appears behind him back to back as she moves her head to her shoulder with a sad yet relieved smile on her face. 

Im here!

She said out of breath and completely exhausted. The days training was some of the hardest she had ever done. Nothing like what she was used to when training at the academy. The days training was running through her mind with the lingering memories she had of past events. The scrapes and cuts on her body was evidence of her effort and determination to achieve her goals of getting stronger. It was like a badge of honor displaying just that and made her feel it was all worth it despite the surging and evident pain she was feeling in her heart and body.

Dante watches Aurora push her self beyond her limits. She displayed tremendous perseverance even after getting so hurt. She finally used the Way of Onmitsu on him. She really did come a long way and he felt very proud of her as she moved around him leaving a few after images before standing back to back with him. He pressed himself off the rock and flash stepped in front of her with a smile on his face. 

You really did your best today. I am very proud of you, Aurora. 

Dante looked Aurora over her uniform was torn and dirty and dried blood was covering it all over. He knew she would not likely accept his help so he remained standing in front of her with a smile on his face. 

Now. We need to have you get healed up and restore your spiritual power. I know just the place. 

The smile was now gone from his face as he looked more serious as if his eyes was telling her no more for today. 

Right. Time for you to experience one of Cell 2's best solutions to pain and reiatsu regeneration. The Spa. Off we go. I need it just as much as you do. I might be getting old. He jokingly said to try and hide his worried expression.

as Dante appeared in front of her she bowed with a gentle smile on her lips :

Thank you for the training commander . 

Aurora didnt want to leave the training but Dantes serious look could convinced her to walk back home reluctantly . still she knew how hard the training could be for him , as she didnt show any sign of going hollow .

it was about noon and they were walking together in silence . she looked at Dante from the corner of her eyes a feeling of safety and happiness warmed her heart that gave her a slight blush and a happy smile on her lips as she looked down on her feet again.
