The feeling is all that Reimu needed as she felt the power swell within the boy. The gem within him would then begin to pump new life, energy and power into him in order to help him cultivate his skills. It is then that the bond was created between the two and Reimu could feel The Slayers life force as if it were her own. This would then give her the ability to help him better guide his efforts to become faster, stronger and more durable.
However, what was more interesting was the fact that the male seemed to absorb whatever substance he came into contact with. At least, if she understood his abilities correctly. The male was explaining that whatever he consumed, he gains its attributes through enough training. So, with her gem being one of energy, it could be assumed that the knight may very well gain energy manipulation traits and that made her rather interested to see what might come of that.
"Good, then you'll be able to get faster in no time. Do you feel that energy coursing through you? Channel that stream into your legs as if you were diverting a rushing current of water into your limbs. Then, lock that current into place and do what I just did now for constant burst of speed. While, at the same time, have an outerlayer of pure fire embrace your skin and body to form a layer of durable energy around you. In this way, you can become stronger and buff up your defenses in combat if you can multi-task these two objectives."
Then, with a snap of her finger, Reimu released a burst of crimson energy and split it into four, low level energy blast. These would attack him the minute that the male started to move with the technique she was trying to bestow upon him. This was done in order to give him real world practice and prepare him for the difficult combat that may lay ahead of him. "I will also be firing these off at you while you move. Try to do what I said and use your new strength to destroy or deflect them away from you."
Once these were set up the Shrine Maiden would then let out a sigh and blush somewhat when he started saying that she was a woman able to steal his heart. Such things were hush-hush with Reimu as she, being a Shrine Maiden, had never had a mate in her five hundred years of existing. So, that subject was almost taboo and she put her fingers upon her lips and shushed the boy. "Hehehe, really? You think so? Ahhhh, I'd just focus on the training. Hehehehe." She was a bit flustered, but she was still serious about this training they were doing!
"Now, since I'm the lady in charge, begin your training session with my little energy blast and we can start seeing the results of my methods coming to pass. Get started! We don't have all time!" Reimu was joking about the rushing part, but he did need to go on and do what she asked and she was curious to see what might come of it. Hopefully her training would pay off and he would see a notable boost in his ability from her assistance with the boy. That's all she ever wanted out of him. And maybe after that they could get even further into the training if he were able to pass this phase of her program. Just may.
