Well, ok. Mirja thought. If he couldn't turn it off then it would sort of be fine in this fight of no spiritual stuff. Her strength was spiritual stuff. Way more potent than anyone of or around the same level, but she couldn't turn that off because it was part of her body, it was her ability to use Kido and make Reiatsu platforms, turned inwards and making every part of her biology increasingly more dense, and thus more powerful as the muscles got stronger and stronger. Abnormally strong, even. No Strength training on earth would be able to help her, with the constant growth of her body.
He broke into a small lesson about what it was he was actually doing, and then offered to show her a technique of his, since she showed him one of hers. It was kind of unfair, since it was a technique that he wouldn't be able to learn anything from, the very concept of it's origins something that he would not be able to utilize. Still, he came anyway, and he was a little scary as he was saying it, so she hedged her bets with Silent Scream to make sure nothing got broken. And then he came fast. Her eyes could track him but that was all, her body couldn't do anything but wait for the impact. Everyone was so fast these days, it was like the universe was taunting her with people that were so much faster than she was. She needed to get better, these fights were bringing her the drive to do it, the desire to improve. And she would force herself to get better until she did it, or got crippled and could barely crawl. Almost was never good enough for Mirja.
As for the technique itself, it was quite the impressive one, and in a moment of painful-heart-palpitation-induced clarity, she was inspired to see how well she could recreate it. It was designed for people without Mirja's special physiology, and her Silent Scream took the edge off it to boot, but she still took quite the blow to her heart, and it thumped erratically, painfully for a few seconds, jarred by the impact. Mirja took a few seconds to recover, and then gasped clutching her chest as the pain seared.
"Painfully impressive" She muttered, as the pain slowly faded and allowed her to stand up right. She could only imagine what kind of hell that could do to a person with the regular biology. And that, was something she was pretty eager to find out. "As for what you are doing, you are holding onto pieces of your past. To ignore the past simply because it is dark is folly of the highest order"
