Sword Fighting...? Why...?

Post by Salzem on 6/3/2018, 1:34 pm

Aaron groaned as his daily regiment of exercise drew ever closer... He didn't WANT to train today... He was too tired to go smack around a dummy for an hour... He honestly tried to think of any reason he could believe that he'd need to stay around his cabin. Tidying up? He did that last night while he tried to beat his insomnia. Cleaning up his cabin-mate's stuff? While he certainly could with all the garbage they tossed about, he was almost certain that would start something when they inevitably couldn't find something of theirs. What about grabbing extra breakfast? And have to risk running into random people thinking the same thing?

No... His path was set... Greeeeeeeeeat.

Aaron sighed heavily, grabbing his claymore out from under his bed, then his kopis which he kept under his pillow at night. Strapping his claymore to his back and his sword to his hip, he set out for the arena, hoping that the adrenaline rush that came with this work out would help mute the ever-numbing exhaustion that was born from his sleeplessness. Walking into the large sword-fighting arena, Aaron found that, besides a few others keeping to their own devices, he was the only one here. Well... that was good, at least. Now he didn't have to share a dummy... Though... he had to wonder where everyone else had gone. Perhaps they were taking it easy today... maybe screwing around with the forge. It could even be possible they were fighting some monsters even!

...Whatever. He was too tired to care. The real question was: What would he start with first? Claymore... or Kopis? He looked at the armored dummy, a straw scare-crow like man in a suit of metal, looking over the chinks in the joints and face... Perhaps he'd use is Kopis first... He felt more in control with a smaller, more maneuverable blade. He'd test out his skill with Dream-sever next.

Drawing his long curved sword, he held it in front of him the point leveled at the breast-plate of the dummy, ready to strike...

Well then. This wasn't a great day. Keeley absolutely hated the heat today, but you can't go up to a god and tell them to piss off because you were too hot. That was what the dumb heroes in Greek stories did. And now look at them.

They're dead. She thought miserably as she tumbled down the hill.

Rewind, Keels. What made them so mad they had to push you down the hill? And, although she hated to admit it, she did do a few things. First, she purposely tipped over their canoe in the lake, then she had (again, purposely) tripped them, one after the other. Oh, and let's not forget the eggs during lunch.

As she rolled to a stop at the sword fighting arena, Keeley stopped right under a dummy. She looked up at the boy above her, who was holding a long, curved sword, and said, with the most casual voice she could muster, "Hey. How's life?"

Haley was currently frustrated at herself, so she was busy taking out her anger on one of the many people who wanted to train. Why was she mad at herself? Because she had failed miserably at trying to make her best friend feel better. It might seem strange to some, considering that she would tell you she hated everyone, but the young woman loved to help others. It was like making up to the world for the way she felt. Just because she was surrounded by darkness didn't mean everyone else needed to be.

Her brown hair was pulled back into a messy ponytail that was currently trying to fall down. Her Metallica t-shirt and black skinny jeans clung to her body, her forehead beaded with sweat. She was fighting with her sword today, using the butt of it to knock her apponent - Lucas - In in the chest, knocking him to the ground.

She put her left hand on her hip, letting her sword fall to the ground and wiping the sweat off of her forehead with her right. Lucas grunted as he hit the ground, but smiled up at her. "Still no chance I could get you to go to the movies with me, princess?"

"Not a chance in Hell," she retorted, helping him up. As she would turn, she noticed the other two people in the arena, but didn't approach them.

Aaron prepared to strike at the neck of this dummy, to take his head off in a clean swing or two. He would channel his frustration and anger over his own insomnia into his arm, his strength increasing fold after fold. He felt powerful... Like his blade would cleave through it's form like a hot katana through butter. He was focused... ready... And then, just as he was about to swing, a girl came out of nowhere and landed right in front of him where he was about to take a step in. Aaron's eyes widened in shock as he reeled back to keep himself from stepping this random girl, his blade slipping out of his hand as he fell back on his butt, just staring at this chick that came out of nowhere. His surprise was replaced with a look of bemusement, his eyes narrowing at the girl as she so casually asked how life was. What a question.

"...Fine." He responded, his voice sharp and harsh as if his words were a barbed club. Clearly, he didn't appreciate being force to fall on his apple-john... Especially when he was trying to train with a sharp weapon here! Speaking of which... Where did it go...? He got to his feet and dusted off his jeans as he went over to collect his sword, doing his best to keep himself from lashing out at her. He was NOT in the mood for this... As he bent down to grab his Kopis, he spotted another girl and some guy glancing there way, the two half-bloods met with a dead, blank stare. With his weapon in hand, he walked back over to the dummy, quickly slicing it's "throat" with a quick backhand cut across it's neck, a small smile of satisfaction creeping across his lips as at the damage he caused. It felt... satisfying to take something apart like that. He couldn't really do much more with it such as attacking from different angles while that girl still laid at his feet. Hopefully she'd see that getting between a half-blood with a weapon and his target doesn't make for happy-fun-times. Although...

Perhaps if he had a bigger weapon, he could reach the dummy without risking stepping on her face... After slipping his Kopis back into it's sheath, Aaron drew his 4 1/2 foot claymore from where it rested on his back, the bronze metal twinkling in the bright light of the day... Now... maybe he should break the armor...
