After Tento spoke out his words he did not regret it. Hanako took the challenge and let him cast the kido spell on her, so he would let her do it onto him as well. Call it a piece of his competive side coming out, or a simple desire to see if he could break himself out of the binding spell just as she did. "Right, hit me with ya best shot Hanako, don't hold back!".

His heart raced after said that. His body falling out of the stance that casted the Sai kido spell a long time ago in the conversation. His arms were now at his side. His heart starting to pick up a little. Was this..excitement? The first sense since his time entering the after life and the school? Hm....no. This would be the second. The first was his first real encounter with Hanako, the exchange and clash of swords in class. It had been a little bit since he had been excited a little bit from a workout or challenge. This should be fun.

He watched her once more, looking out for signs to see how she felt. His concern and assumption was that she was concerned about her kido skills. Maybe frustration in not being an expert in comparison in other areas, maybe an underdevelopment of skills, maybe a since of lack of knowledge. Whatever it was, it was bothering the upperclasswoman, and Tento was aiming to look for signs of the issues so that he could help her smooth it out. After all, there was no telling if either would fall into a situation where they did not have their sword. Their Kido and Hakuda experience would be the factor to decided success and failure, life and death in those moments. Such was the life of a Shinigami.

In this examination, Tento did see another shimmer of softness in the rumored Ice Queen. A tiny lift of a smile, a softer shine in her eyes, less distant. Then she took her stance. Doing the same as Tento in pointing her index and middle finger towards her target, Tento. In a careful and precise articulation of the full incantation, she casted the Sai spell. A way that Tento thought was slow, either in concern of messing up or wanting to make sure foundations were solid.

Either way, the spell went off successfully. It rocked his body like a unexpected punch, yanking his arms behind his back and his legs locked together before making them go stiff and causing him to fall to the ground on his left side. If Hanako was shy about kido or this spell, she had him fooled. She did the spell perfectly, and felt like it was just as a strong bind as Tento. If not, stronger. Such as one would expect from a fifth year casting a spell in comparison to a first year. But man was this uncomfortable, Tento could not imagaine trying to fight or defend himself like this if a part of his body was restricted.

In the next few seconds to a minute, Hanako got the privilege. to see a comedic few. For Tento was rolling around trying to get himself up, it took a bit with a lot of grunts and force of will. An unknown factor to Tento was that his spirit pressure was moving back and forth to try and break the binding on his limbs. "Eheheheheh...you got me...pretty locked up good here...". He said bashfully. It was such a tight and uncomfortable spell.

He was able to get up, only to be sat on his butt in a cross legged stance, somehow the feeling of mobility in his legs came back. But now was the harder part. If Hanako would look like she would drop the spell Tento would speak out, "N-no please. Don't undo it. Let me try to break out of it too...". That competitiveness was showing again. Or maybe a desire to not look weak in front of Hanako? If they were to help each other train, they had to be around each other level in some things after all? If one was overall stronger heavily, the benefit would only be one sided...

Tento closed his eyes and took a deep breath. He let his muscles relaxed and tried to calm his spirit. This was what Hanako did, and such this was probably the proper way to respond. Just like quick sand, the more you thrashed about, the faster you sinked. One much break through swiftly, and in control if they aimed not to waste the effort.

Smooth breatsh came, in and out of his mouth and nose as the air pressed through his body and circulated. At times Tento did messed up though, allowing a hiss and grunt to leave as he tried to use his physical strength along side his spirit. The muscles in his arms, shoulders, and chest tensed. His body trembled from effort as a very light tiny hue of white light shined on his skin, so weak probably not visible. But yet heavy? With far greater effort than Hanako had let her shown, Tento now took his turn fighting against the spell. From what he felt and could understand from Hanako's action, you needed to relax you needed physicl strneght, but also spiritual pressure. Because kido was not a physical thing, physical things of the world were not a favorable thing to use against it. And for Tento, there were little he currently had.

Even with the exposure of spirits to the living world, Tento did not really get to see them, well clearly. He saw outlines, he could hear voices, but what he mostly got with the physical boost. With that and his work effort and training, he had developed an iron body when he was alive. That body failed in comparison to the one he had now and was working on developing now though. There was so much more potential in it, so much that he had not tapped into and was no way near to reaching or understanding.

Veins on his neck, forehead, his arms. They were pulsing. And then they stopped. Tento had let go in this moment, but his body was still feeling the work. He was sweating up a storm, the back completely wet as if he had just gotten down with a several hour intense workout. He struggled more, the time passing for several moments, longer than Hanako had to. It would be no surprise if the older student was getting impatient. And finally, he somehow did it.

In a swift soft motion, Tento's arm's broke free of the restrained and rested on his lap. A soft sigh escaped his lips before a coy smile surfaced. If Hanko's smile was one of a tigher about to eat, his was a fox thinking about how to enjoy a good trick or hunt. "Sorry for the hold up. What do you want to do next".

Hanako inhaled sharply when Tento managed to break her Sai. As far as she knew most Shinigami were able to break a Sai, sooner or later. All but the most powerless souls and humans were able to. It was the weakest of the weak spells. Still...Tento was a first year. He shouldn't be that much above a human. Even with Hanako's four-year-headstart she had struggled to break it. Was it because Tento was extraordinarily good...or was it because she sucked so bad?

Hanako was pretty sure it was the latter. Granted, Tento was physically fit, but she already knew her weakness and it was kido. It showed even against a freshman.

She clenched her teeth and fought the frustration back down.

"Dunno. This all was your idea, remember? You said you wanted to do a level one Bakudo and Hadō. We still have the Sho left."

She shrugged and took a quick look around. This place wasn't very well suited for...well just about anything that went beyond a simple Bakudo. The groundskeepers would probably beat the crap out of them if they started doing practice shots at their ornamental plants.

"We can go to the target range and practice there...unless…"

Her eyes became a bit smaller as she watched him closely.

"Unless you'd prefer to practice Sho on a live target, too."

It would be incredibly stupid to do this, but Hanako somehow wanted to see what Tento was made of. Was he reckless, was he reasonable? The better question was: was she reckless enough to go through with it, if he accepted. Somehow she hoped he wouldn't. She wasn't afraid of bruises or pain. Quite the opposite. She liked it when her training hurt. But they would get themselves into even more trouble than if they shot some potted plants.

Hanako definitely was proud enough. Or more like defiant. She would show no weakness. It was Tento's move now.

Heavy labored breaths came from Tento as his chest muscles lifted up and down and up and down. A coat of noticeable sweat on his face, arms, and back. He was indeed able to break the spell binding him casted by Hanako, but with great effort and more time that it took her to cast the kido cast by her first year training partner. The young man was still sitting in an uncomfortable sitting position that he was in beforehand due to his chaotic struggle to free himself for Hanako's Sai. It was...tiring. Throughout his time in school so far, Tento had not seen anyone in his first year class to break the binding. Wether, no one had attempted to do so, the instruction of the teacher was that no one would be able to with how new there were to the school's art. Spiritual power still needed to be grown and refined, mental understanding gained, physical body grown. It was something you were not expected to do easier, even more so from someone stronger than you. And Hanako was most definitely stronger than Tento, as a result of his struggle.

Tento heard the sharp inhale from Hanako. A left over from her efforts of resistance or dissatisfaction with the outcome? Perhaps she was hoping that Tento would not be able to break free from her Sai, a confidence boost moment lost? Or did she have other plans? Regardless if she wanted to get Tento in a bind it would not be easy, he wanted to get stronger out of their interactions too after all. He was doozy from the attempt, but Hanako did help him to gain some experience in Kido resistance.

He gasped for air as Tento watched Hanako stand there, eyeing him before speaking, "Well, yea I did create the idea. But given that you are stronger and more experience...I am just following your lead. Since you know more than me i'm trusting you to set up some interesting challenges for us to do", regardless what she said was true. It was his idea to do Bakudo and Hadō level 1 kido. But that was not the real reason he asked that question. 'What do you want to do next' was his way of asking her how she felt about the first spell. How her spirit was, her mind, her confidence. It was a question to her body, one he did not expect her to give honestly with her mouth, but from the slight hints of body language that everyone gave off in little ways. And even more so if she was feeling frustrated, 'what did you want to do next about it'. He hoped her warrior spirit would let him know.

But there next exercise was at hand, doing the level one Hadō Sho kido. Tento watched as Hanako looked around before stopping and speaking. Speaking two options that he would rather not do. "Oh, no no no. I rather not take a chance of hitting your beautiful body and leaving a mark. Or wrecking anything around here...probably someone that could notice us being responsible for something breaking easily... Is there another other place we could go to to practice sho??", Tento sat still on the ground, breathing a bit more for the effort from breaking Hanako's Sai.

A quick hint of red was seen on Hanako's cheeks when he mentioned her 'beautiful body'. She was vaguely aware that some men looked different at her than other students. She was also vaguely aware of what it meant. However, what wasn't vague was her absolute ignorance on what to do about it. She had no idea whatsoever how to react to a remark like that. So after a while…

...she didn’t react at all.

All her knowledge about this and similar topics came from her observations of other students. And it was not much. She’d seen other women react coy or snippy but it meant nothing to her. Not that anyone had made any real advances towards her. Even if someone had, she wasn’t really interested anyway. Now Tento at least was someone that stood out a bit. He was strong and agile. Still, it was a mild curiosity at best.

“Whatever.” she mumbled, barely audible at all.

She went to the bench she had been sitting on and gathered her stuff.

“There is kind of a shooting range. It’s open, I’ve used it after classes before. We can go there.”

She pointed in the general direction where the shooting range was. It was pretty simple, like someone would expect from a shooting range for bows and arrows. Only that there the targets were dirt cheap, because they usually didn’t survive more than one hit, and the backstops were made from Sekiseki.

An awkward silence followed, where Hanako just stood around, no idea if she should say something or not, the book under her arm and waiting for Tento to stand up. He seemed pretty tired from breaking the Sai. While she wasn’t breathing and sweating as heavy as he was, she still felt spent to a degree, just from that one small spell.

Sometimes words just came out of Tentó's mouth. He noticed things of the beauty that was the female form and he had to give its proper recognization sometimes. It was odd given how he was an thinker and analytical about his day, life, actions normally. Sometimes it was an unmodest teasing to a female person he felt comfortable with and knew were find with him talking thatt way to them lightly, other times it was just to flirt with someone that drew his attention, physically, mentally, or both.

Tentó's body hanged back as he continued to rest, noticing the hint of red on her cheeks for the short time that it was present. A slight mumble that Tentó barely heard, a whatever. So soft and barely audible it was clear that Hanako was taken aback by the rather sudden complement. Either embarrassed, bashful, or shocked; it impacted the upper class woman.

With a huff he got up now, bending his knees and popping up to his feet with a flip and hop as Hanako went to the beach and grabbed her items on the bench. "Ah, i have not been there yet. Good thing I'm here with you huh?". He watched at where she pointed, he had done shots practicing kido. Sure. In class though, and so far, the teacher had not told them about the area. Perhaps wanting to ensure they knew the basic before allowing them to do it in that area.

His breathing was more calm now, still a bit labored from the effort earlier but he was definitely recovering energy wise. He stood next to her and when she began to walk he would follow walking besides her. "So, care to give a quick run down on Sho??".

"A rundown?" Hanako asked. She had assumed Tento knew everything about Sho already and just wanted to practice. She looked at him from the side for a moment, while they were walking. It was refreshing not having to look down for once.

After a moment she just shrugged again. Whatever.

"Okay." She said.
"Sho is a kinetic damage spell. No elements involved like in a Shakkaho."

She made a thrusting motion with her fist, striking at the air before her.

"It's like punching someone. With your mind. Over distance."

Now she raised her index finger, as if to start a lecture.

"You only need your index finger. Kind of 'point and shoot', I guess."

While they entered the corridor leading to the range Hanako began to wonder. She had talked in this last hour more to a fellow student than probably in the whole last week. It was somewhat strenuous and she couldn't decide whether she liked it or not. She also wondered why and how Tento kept up with her for so long. Most other students got tired of her after about half an hour. Did his remark about her physical appearance have something to do with it?

Finally they arrived and had the whole range to themselves. It was quite similar to shooting ranges everywhere: basically a large, empty area with some targets and backstops. Only that the backstops here were able to keep all energy inside the range. It had the nice side effect that, as long as nonwtong person saw them entering or leaving or they didn't make too much noise, no one would know that they were practicing on their own.

"There we are." She said and made a short inviting gesture towards the targets.

Tento nodded at Hanako's question. Yes, he would like a rundown of the Kido spell Sho. It was indeed true that he knew everything about the level one Kido spell Sho, or at least everything that Tento read about it in instruction notes or the words his teacher told them in their lecture on it while instructing his class about the beginner spell. But that was not the point in Tento's actions. Sure, it was always good to go over the basics, to make them second nature or instincts for they were jumping off points to more advanced moves and techniques. That was and would always be true, and normally that would be the point. However, his question was aimed at conversating with Hanako. He was confident that Hanako knew what she was doing with these level of spells, given her ease and the confidence Tento perceived from her during her casting. But each kido spell type was different, and part of the action of doing spells, were the understanding one had with them. So doing it, was his way of seeing how comfortable she was in the information with Sho, and hopefully a way to gain insight of her feelings with higher level kido spells in some way.

In truth, there was also the small talk. The overall topic may have been meaningless for the purpose of training, but it was a possible tool for Tento when getting to know people. In this case Hanako. She was the Ice Queen, from the words and opinions of the students around him. Why was that? This was a slow light chip to look deeper to him, a bonding strategy for examining and managing the personal distance between him and Hanako. Attempting to see or create some definition between them as they were still fairly new acquaintances.


He watched her shrug as they walked, the upperclass women looking at him side ways before giving a light shrug of her shoulders. He nodded along as she spoke, her explanation clear and showed she knew exactly what Sho was. A simple attack spell that used kinetic force to deal damage. She mentioned another spell, something called Shakkaho. It was one that he had never heard about before, given that he was still only exposed to the most basic spells. He thus assumed that the spell must been a higher level Hadō spell, how much about was an unknown thing tho. It did involve some type of element though, that was good to know at least. And you had to use the whole hand, unlike Sho where you just used index finger. "Okay I gotcha".

Soon they finally entered the corridor leading to the shooting range. The walk not taking long at all. The next stage of Tento's and Hanako's workout was ready to continue! It was a joy to see that the range was empty. More targets to practice on, less people to worry about. He did not mind people, it was good and worked to his benefit when he had more people to train against. However, when focusing on a one on one case, or trying to focus on improving within a group or duo, the less number of people meant less chance of distraction or a slow down.

There it was, a large empty room, backstops and some targets. Circles and dummies. When Hanako spoke an excited smirk came upon his face. A gesture to the targets, that was what he took as his cue to go first. He deiced to go for one of the circular targets. With a short shuffle of his legs he was in front of his target, his body squared. "Okay, I'll go first and you give me some feedback from what you see??". With a short sigh Tento began, raising up a single index finger, he let the incantaition flow from him as his small amount of Reishi went to work. "Gather before me, thrust at my foe, separate us with one blow, Hadō #1, Sho!". At the tip of his finger, a small amount of Reiryoku gathered, the energy flashing with a quick flicker of light as the energy force from the thrust moved. The kinetic force barely hitting the circle target and hitting it back a inch or two.

For a moment Hanako said nothing.

"Well, you hit the target." She said in her usual manner. It sounded a bit as if she wanted to compliment Tento on a mediocre performance to go easy on his feelings. In fact, though, it was quite the opposite.

As far as she knew almost no one except the talented students hit a target on the first try. At least not if it was the very first try at firing a Hadō at a target in general. She hadn't. Only at that time it was nothing special. Frustrating, yes, but only until she saw that almost ninety percent of her group had missed also. That she had a general problem with kido only became apparent later, when the others improved and she stagnated on a barely acceptable level.

Now, Tento did hit. The implication of what it meant, at least as Hanako thought it did, hit her like the fist of an instructor.

"You know…" she said slowly and in a bit of a muted tone.
"Maybe I am not the right person to help you with kido."

There was a longer pause and even though Hanako wore her usual reduced expression on her face, it was clear that she was at least a little bit uncomfortable.

"Maybe we should end this. You hit the target, you know how to do it. I don't know how I should help you. I'm actually not that good at...helping people."

A slight hesitation formed when Hanako almost said she wasn't good at kido. If it wasn't really that obvious by now she'd rather not volunteer that information to Tento, if it could be helped. Enough that her own classmates laughed at her, no need to add a First Year to it. She just hoped Tento would let it go.

A cold silence filled the air as Tento waited. Hanging for time for something to happen. Hanako was silent, more so than Tento had known her to be in the few interactions he had with her before. He knew by now that she was not really the talkative type, but at least she would have a short comment normally? Did he do something that she found distasteful? As a freshman, just hitting the target, no matter how little, was something he thought should be celebrated. But perhaps, in comparison to her seniority in the school and her hard work ethic, she saw that weak and barely hitting blow as something pathetic? Disappointing?

That was all Tento wondered in the moment before Hanako spoke.

And when she finally did speak he did not feel much better. She said the words in her usual tone and by themselves, the words were not really positive or negative just...matter of fact. It was....so much kinda of like a back handed compliment? But attempted in a way to not hurt feelings. Yea...Hanako was not a sharp communicator after all maybe, but Tento already knew that about the rumor warnings of her cold exterior shell shield of a personality. At least that was his assumption. Normally when people did have that type of personality, it was due to a need not a desire. People acted that way because they had to, for fear of being hurt or were currently hurting.

Tento rubbed the back of his head, "hehehe, yea, my aim is not too accurate and I cant muster out much power. But I think its good enough for a fresh year, but I want to do better, much better". He paused as it seemed that something changed within Hanako. Her actions came as if she was shrinking in on herself. "Huh? But we haven't done much. I cant be that bad at is can I? Come on I'm teachable at least. Stay a bit and talk with me and we can come back to this another time if you think we should stop for now".

He had to do something, he was far from done with training today but he couldn't force her to stay either.

"I mean...I did hit the target I guess but barely? I had a lot of problems controlling the spells too. From what I can tell, you have much much more control over the casting of your Kido spells than I do. I know they say part of it is about focus and letting go at the same time, but that is really...not me. When I was alive I did martial arts, not focusing is just...a no for me". He paused for a little, "hmmm, well, helping people is something not everyone does or tries to do at least. But you've helped me already. Our sparing in kendo when we first met was incredible! Your technique and skill is better than anyone I fought when I was alive. And sadly...no one in my class has come close to giving me that thrill when it comes to training. So I think you've already helped me and are better than what you give yourself credit for".

Her self esteem in kido is bad after all... I know she can do it. Shes an upper class member after all. Even if she isn't by her peers, she does had a grasp and use of it somewhat after all. And not all soul reapers even use kido...this...is gonna take more work to help her in return after all

Tento was a stubborn man after all, and he had already decided he would help her...but the question now was how hard it would be and how long would it take? eh....there was time before she graduated.

The situation became quite uncomfortable for Hanako. It didn’t need a very attentive observer to see that she was practically writhing. Finally she brought herself to speak again, instead of just leaving.

“It’s not…I mean…It is…”

She stopped, sighed and took a moment to compose herself before trying again.

“I am not very good with others, but it’s not what I actually meant.”

She gesticulated towards the targets.

“You tried your first Sho at the range and you hit a target on the very first try. It doesn’t matter that the aim was a bit off or that it was fairly low powered. What matters is that I am fairly certain you exceeded every expectation any instructor could have for a freshman.”

Hana crossed her arms and stared at the ground with a bitter expression on her face. Her gaze, however, was lost somewhere in between.

“ I, however, do not.”

The bitterness in her voice was almost palpable. There was a lot of frustration and anger, she was no longer able to hold back. If it was one of her powers the power of emotions inside her would first freeze everything in a mile radius around her and then instantly burn it to ash. Only at this point Hanako had no clue what her powers were…if she even had any. It would be years before she would find out any of it. Also before she would find out that her emotions, all this frustration about her falling behind, was actually what was holding her back. But again, all those revelations were still years in the future.

At that moment in the present it was a major feat of restraint that hanako stayed as calm as she was. She would have liked nothing better than to smash something, even Tento. Especially Tento, since he could fight back. It was nothing personal against Tento, he didn’t do or say anything to provoke her, she actually kind of liked him. It was just the unreasonable side of her, looking for a vent. However, for the moment, that side was under control.

“Look, I may be doing okay with these low level Kido spells. Now. When I was in first year I was hopeless. Dammit, I still am beyond the first third of spells. And I am supposed to graduate in a little under two years.”

She turned away from Tento and aimlessly punched the air, since the wall was too far away. She felt her face grow hot and knew she was blushing. She hated it. The way things looked now she would not graduate. One of her instructors even said it to her face in no uncertain terms. Adding to that her more than obvious lack of social skills, from her point of view she was indeed the last person suited to help someone with Kido that managed to hit a target on his first try ever.
