Inside her mind ritsuko dreamt of a coin, old and covered in dirt, the engravings worn and the head of the king so tarnished as to be stolen from view. She held it in her left hand, watching the mud dirty her skin. So close to her face the coin had the aroma of stale blood. she turned to her right hand and in the palm was a new spring leaf, crowned by a perfect sphere of dew, reflecting an image of her face, softened and relaxed. When she turned back to the coin, the image of the king had freed himself and journeyed over to the leaf, igniting the growth of strong roots and new foliage that reached for the sunlight, robust, virescent.

Once her training is complete she can finally get to the basic methods of handling a sword, like partying dodging and when to initiate a strike...and hopefully she'll get to experience first hand what it's like to wield her own zanpaktou..however the dream was interrupted as ritsuko opened her eyes briefly to examine what caused her to stop dreaming, was it the wind or was her mind playing tricks on her? Nope in fact she actually found the culprit and it was sudden itch on her left wrist...how could this get any worse.

"Scratch scratch scratch!"her brain was yelling inside but she couldn't besides it'd be stupid to just cheat her way through the training to get a few good scratches in before putting the sword back on her wrist, she so she kept her posture.If henrex wasn't daydreaming he could hear the shaking of her sword as similar to a body builder doing one final set on his workout only to have his body's latic acid tell his muscles that they're exhausted. However Ritsuko wouldn't be able to keep this up much longer, the more she resisted the greater temptations to scratch increased as well.

THE INSANE RAVEN'S POST

Artist: Shut Eye - Song: Everything Falls - Word Count: N/A


It had been a long time since he had last performed this exercise, and Henrex was most certainly out of practice. It was certainly hard to adjust from a normal sword back to a wooden one, especially when it came to the challenge that he hadn't reattempted since he had began his training in the way of the sword. Now, he was regretting that choice of not practicing. While the stutters in his arms were not as frequent as they could have been, he still was struggling.

However, as his eyes slid open, he could see something that Henrex found quite humorous, due to how relatable the situation that the young Quincy was facing. He could hear the shaking of wood, yes, but that was not what he found as humorous. He could see her arms twitching, clearly being bothered by some sort of muscle spasm, itch, or something that would cause jolting in the arms. It was a result of the wood most likely being chipped, or something of that nature.

Either way, it was still something that was something Henrex was soon finding himself to be suffering from. While his was a bit less irritating, Henrex could feel that his arms were beginning to itch as well. However, similarly to Ritsuko, he was ignoring it. There was an important lesson to learn through this challenge, and he was going to make sure that he would both relive it, as well as teach it. His eye twitched ever so slightly at random intervals as the itching began to get worse.

He knew that he had to get his mind off it, or it would soon ruin his focus, and cause him to drop the sword. So, he drifted back to an old mental technique that he had been taught and trained with in his younger days -- Mushin. The concept of being free from anger, fear, or ego during combat, or everyday life. It wasn't that they were becoming emotionless through this time, far from it. It was simply that they didn't have the need for those emotions with this mental state.

So, he let it all go.

All of those thoughts and emotions slowly dripped away, allowing his mind to blank, making his thought process a simple nothing. His mind briefly drifted towards the words that his master repeated to him from the lips of Takuan Soho, but these were soon deleted as well. The feeling was something that felt incredibly nostalgic. It felt as if he were just drifting through space itself. But, there was something that he was hoping that would change...but didn't.

The itch was still there.

In fact, it was immensely worse.

Henrex's eye twitched even more often as a result of this, his arms performing the same notion. With his mind now open to much more, he could feel the full extent of the itch, something that would potentially lead to Henrex's downfall in this challenge. However, Henrex had his determination. He knew that he would be able to last, as long as he continued to push himself.

When the stimuli landed on her skin, it may not bother her at first, but soon it will begin to rub back and forth across her skin. Once the hair or dust scratched her skin's surface layer, receptors in the dermis of the skin became irritated. In a split second, these receptors sent a signal through fibers in the skin to her spinal cord and then up to the cerebral cortex in her brain.

As soon as she feel the tch, her first natural response is to scratch the spot of the itch with her fingernails. The reason for this response is simple -- she wanted to remove the irritant as soon as possible. Once she's scratched the area of irritation, she's more likely to feel some relief. When her brain realized that she scratched away the irritant, the signal being sent to her brain that she have an itch is interrupted and therefore no longer recognized by her brain.


However that was soon quickly diminished when she realized the critical mistake she had just made -- letting the sword drop to the ground...a loud clunk sound could be heard as the sword made contact with the ground. A loud gasp could be heard her breath quivered in short, quick gasps every time she inhaled, her lungs having no choice but to painfully and rigidly take in the chilled air. She stared at the sword a few seconds before saying these words...

"No....I dropped the sword all because of a stupid itch -- I can't believe it...if I'm so distracted by a simple itch how can a function in a combat situation" Ritsuko began to feel discouraged as she laid on the ground staring at the wooden sword not on the forge of crying mind you but a look of disappoint none the less.

THE INSANE RAVEN'S POST

Time continued to pass, and nothing changed. Both of them were having issues in keeping their sword balanced, due to the itch that was residing on their hands and forearms. Both of them wished to release the sword so that they could relive this annoyance, but they both knew that they would not be able to "pass" the lesson that Henrex had put in place for both of them. It was slowly driving Henrex insane with his current state of awareness, along with the itch that had wormed its way to the forefront of his mind.

That itch was slowly beginning to set itself deeper into Henrex's nerves. It was edging itself towards the beginning of Henrex's mind, and soon -- Henrex wouldn't be able to keep the sword held for long. He could feel his arms twitching more commonly as a result of this. Henrex continued to fight the urge to scratch the itch, doing everything he could to keep his mind off of it in this state of mind.

However, it would not be long for him to be holding that mindset. His eyes shot open as the sound introduced itself to his ears. He heard the clattering of the sword against the ground, before hearing Ritsuko sink to the ground. Allowing his arms to drop, and quickly scratching the itch so that he could be relieved of the annoyance. Taking a quiet breath, before walking over to the Quincy, he put a hand on her shoulder, before kneeling, and pulling her head up so that she could see him.

"You did not fail. You simply need more practice. I have faith that in time, you will defeat the sword. You did very well for your first time."

Henrex's hand rose from Ritsuko's chin to her head, before softly ruffling the girl's hair. Standing up and extending a hand to help the girl up, Henrex only had one question to ask for the girl.

"Now, Ritsuko. What do you think was the purpose of this lesson?"

What surprised her was that he didn't scold her or do any of that stuff but instead kneeled down in front of her and but his hand up to her chin and putting her head up letting her blue eyes stare into his own before hearing henrex's words of wisdom allowing for her confidence to slowly come back.
Henrex was right after all she may not get it right the first time but once you start training over and over you'll gradually improve and eventually defeat the challenge in front of you. Ritsuko smiled bit before having her hair ruffled up like a little kid, seeing henrex's hand extend intending to help her up and began the next part of the training.

But before Ritsuko could even take his hand she had to answer another question which of course involved this training regimine, so she thought about it for a few minutes the wooden sword represents the zanpaktou and the spirit itself, while balancing the sword for a varied amount of time represents the wielder itself...so she answered with a voice of confidence.

"The purpose of this lesson was to give me a good understanding of a zanpaktou and how the wielder must have complete and utter concentration giving the spirit a general idea about their master and whether or not to trust them to utilize their powers efficently. Maybe to develop a deeper bonder and partnership, basically the general gist is i'm supposed to control my zanpaktou spirit and let it follow my commands instead of allowing the zanpaktou to control me."

While she had not beaten the sword, she had most certainly put up a valiant effort. Ritsuko had much potential, she just needed to to expunge that potential in the most efficient, and make her into a the best ninja, and Substitute Shinigami that she could be, and the best that he could make her. But, he was glad to see that his words had good effect on her.

He was happy to see that Ritsuko wasn't as crestfallen as she had been once he had comforted her about the test. It was good to know that she was now even more determined, and had not wavered in the slightest with her resolve. To this, Henrex nodded, before smiling, taking the wooden sword away from her and storing them away in the Container.

The next thing that Henrex heard was something that caused him to nod once again. Ritsuko's guess at what the lesson was about was most certainly something that was a good guess, although it was not the full answer. It was something that Henrex felt could connect to the real reason, especially with her plans and goals. So, with that said, Henrex drew his sword once again, holding it towards Ritsuko again.

"The importance of this lesson was to have you attempt to defeat the sword." He said. "If your own sword can defeat you in your own hands, then what hope do you have of ever defeating an enemy?"

Henrex's eyes scanned over Ritsuko, before taking her hand and softly pulling the Quincy to her feet. Pulling out the Container once more, before cycling through it and selecting a number of items. Two canteens, along with a moderately sized picnic basket. Raising the items up slightly, before sitting down, Henrex handed one of the canteens to her, before beginning to unpack the basket.

"We'll take a break for lunch, before starting the next lesson. Sound good?"

Time and time again Ritsuko finally gets to see the opposite side of the spectrum far as mentors compared to others henrex was a bit more laid-back and his overall presentation was interesting.

Nevertheless once again she watched him nod his head before he unsheathed his zanpaktou allowing her to get another look at it beauty while also learning the proper answer to the training regimine.

She grabbed henrex's hand before being lift back onto her feet allowing to get a few good stretches in before getting ready for the next part if the training.
Watching as henrex once more began playing with the container until he selected a few items, then a medium sized picnic basket and two canteens appeared before being given one from henrex while he opens the picnic basket.
Ritsuko watched as his hand fiddle with the basket before being given a canteen filled with she assumed was water; once given she replied with a thanks.

"Of course a lunch break would be wonderful, can't train on a empty stomach before grabbing the canteen and drinking from it's contents letting the cool liquid pour down her throat and into her stomach.

The break had began!

Taking a large blanket from the bottom of the basket, before standing and setting the blanket next to where they were, before sitting down on the blanket, bringing over the plates, and the rest of what had been unpacked, setting them on the now cleaner surface.

Stretching for a moment, Henrex soon felt and heard a loud crack, before he returned to a normal posture. Taking in a deep breath, before resuming the unpacking of the meal, taking out a few sandwiches, a small box of sushi, and a small back of chips. As he did this, Henrex passed a couple of the sandwiches to Ritsuko, along with the bag of chips. But, as Henrex began to open the small box, Henrex looked at Ritsuko.

"Do you like sushi?" He asked. "I wasn't sure if you did, so I got you a bag of chips, just in case."

As he said this, Henrex slowly began to unscrew the cap off of his canteen, before bringing the cold steel to his face and taking a sip of the raspberry tea within, before closing the item, and setting it down next to him.

"Now, the next lesson I have planned for you is pretty simple -- a parry and strike." He said, before pulling out a pair of chopsticks, before taking a piece of the food in the box, and taking a bite.

Chewing slowly, before swallowing, Henrex used the chopsticks to point at the weapon that now lay at his side.

"While this was something that my taijutsu teacher taught, it applies to many martial arts, including the art of the sword. He said. "The basics are for battle. It is the reason why many samurai prefer the sword style of Iaido, and even some ninja."

Setting the chopsticks down, before rising to his feet, and picking his sword up, pressing his thumb to the handguard, Henrex stepped over around a foot away from where they were, before azure blue light began to gather in particles in front of the man. Pressing together and solidifying into a single shape, the particles of energy finalized into a large, wooden post. With his left hand softly grasping around the hilt of the sword, Henrex waited, his foot digging into the ground, before Ritsuko would immediately see the flash of silver in front of her eyes.

In that flash, Henrex's sword would be drawn at lightning fast speeds, with his arm moving without hesitation as he slashed his way through the post, before the blade returned to the sheath. Turning around, Henrex walked back over to where Ritsuko was, before sitting down and picking up his chopsticks once again. All the while, the post that he had attacked now began to slide and fall, with segments collapsing to the ground, making loud clattering noises as it did.

"Iaido is simple, quick, and efficient." He said. "We end the fight with one strike, because it may be the only one we get."

He knew that there were many men who had fallen because of this style. It was favored by many, for the very same reasons he had just listed. Now, as he resumed eating, he awaited Ritsuko's response to what he had just said.

Obviously ritsuko was correct guessing that the next part would consist of practicing dodges and parrying with the sword, after all parrying requires alot of footwork and knowing where to position your sword to block an incoming attack.
But she did wonder would the blocking and parrying also apply to dual-wielding? Considering most battles are fought with a two-handed sword she was curious if anyone even considered fighting with two one handers.

Nevertheless Ritsuko began to grab a sandwich and a bag of chips since she isn't much of a sushi kinda girl, she'd much rather prefer shrimp eating up their tiny legs is the best part after all..so she listened to henrex making sure not to let the food get in the way of her training so she quietly ate her sandwich listening to everything henrex said occasionally nodding her head before having her eyes drawn to the weapon henrex was pointing at.

But it looks like she'll get front row seats to witness the laido sword style for the very first time.

Setting the chopsticks down, before Until she saw a wooden post materialize in front of her very eyes standing tall and firm awaiting to be sliced down to demonstrate the effectiveness of the laido style.

Ritsuko looked as henrex body was taking a stance, making sure his feet was firm on the ground before unsheathing his sword revealing a silver glimmer before the post was sliced...It felt like its like her brain couldn't process what just happened...it was just so quick it looked like a blur she remained silent as henrex began walking towards her sitting down and picking up the chopsticks. The post henrex sliced slowly slide off and fell into individual pieces until making loud noise, before finally listening to detriments of using this sword style...it had to be used to finish an enemy in one blow.

Ritsuko sat in silence for a moment thinking about the sword style itself about how it's the only thing strike you'll ever get..the one thing that'll either have you coming out alive or dead on the ground in a pool of blood...

I see...and I assume that many people attempted this technique to stop an enemy from destroying everything and everyone they cared about but alas they fall onto the ground defeated..am I right? It's similar to a double edged sword...while powerful it can only be used once and one misstep can cost your life.

"Not exactly. Back home, we were taught one thing: never hesitate. He said, his gaze holding Ritsuko's as he continued. "Although I was told that by a...less desirable source, it still stands true."

His free hand slid to the katana at his side, his icy fingers coiling around the handle of the weapon, drawing it once more. Memories flashed through him of the time that he had first held a katana. It was an entirely different world than holding a wooden sword. A bokken could kill, yes, but the sword was far more adept and potent with that power. He held a weapon that could carve it's way into the world if the wielder ever so wished.

"You must always be ready to use your weapon when you unsheath it." He said gravely, his knuckles turning white from the even stronger rip that he had introduced to the weapon. "When you unleash the blade, you hold the power of life and death in your hands."

His grip loosened, and Henrex swiftly returned the weapon to it's sheath, before sliding the weapon behind him. This was more of philosophical teachings, as well as teaching some of the way of the samurai, but to Henrex? The ways of the samurai and the ninja were too closely entwined to be able to really be considered different. There was so much similar between them, that Henrex knew he had to teach people both ways. So, Henrex picked up his chopsticks, and went to continue eating.

As Henrex resumed eating, he couldn't stop thinking about what he had just performed. His mind softly drifted back into the past, to when he watched this kind of act being performed on a daily basis, and watching many warriors fall as a result of this. It was something that taught a cold, cruel lesson to those who were being taught the way of the sword. They had to make sure they were certain with their strike, because it may very well be their last on the battlefield. Henrex inhaled sharply at this recollection, before setting his chopsticks down and bringing the wooden swords out once more.

Handing one to Ritsuko, before gripping the sword properly, then walking a few feet away from the picnic, before creating a small barrier around it with his energy, strong enough to at least prevent the food from spoiling (somehow), flying away from the wind, or potentially getting in the way of the lessons.

"Let's do a quick warm up, before we get fully into the lesson." He said, before gripping the sword with both hands again.

"How does that sound?"
