When he reached the courtyard in the middle, he stepped into a large ring in the center. He stripped off his cloak, discarding a belt of knives and his weight vest. When the vest hit the ground, it made a large crack in the marble floor and Bishi stood his full height.

"Hmm, cheap marble. Fancy." He took both his blades out of the sheathes, the one in his right hand overhand and his left underhand. "Nice place you have here, if it wasn't so cheap and made of crappy rock, I'd stay here."

Rin thought for a moment. Trace definately stood a chance. Bishi didn't understand that Trace is extremely strong for his looks, and very fast. She knew that Bishi came from a very long background of fighting, and he was definately a danger to Trace.

Bishi narrowed his eyes at Trace. He'd just made a grave mistake. Every stone and piece of wood in here was brought in a built by him. He just lost any mercy Bishi was going to use on him. "Child. Mocking me is a bad idea. I don't get angered. Just annoyed." He drew his ninjato and katana, standing at the ready. "Come on and I'll show you why I'm the leader of this Guild."

Trace drew his blades, obviously overconfident. "Alright. Come on over and show my why your the hotheaded boss of a second rate guild." Trace smiled.

Rin readied some spells, in case the fight gets out of hand. A few barriers should stop the battle nice and quick.

Bishi raised his ninjato, and as he did, his face went completely blank. The moment his blade stopped, he blurred into movement. Suddenly he went from across the courtyard to next to Trace, katana swinging for his abdomen

Trace was impressed by the speed, but was ready. He deflected the blow with his underhand blade. damn, he's strong. he thought. He lunged his blade for his arm.

Rin jumped when she saw his speed. bastard, Trace, come on, get him.

Bishi blocked the blow with his ninjato, in the same movement lifting the blade and arm for a strike at his side. His movement was so fast you couldn't see the arm till it had stopped. And when you saw it, you'd realize he'd turned the blade around so the edge was away from Trace. But it would still cause some damage, maybe a broken rib to a normal human. He disengaged and spun away, standing at the ready.

Trace slashed underhandedly like a tornado, feeling something scrape his blade. When he stopped, he saw some blood on his blade. Pain rushed to him and he clutched his chest. He'd be feeling that in the morning.

Rin watched in horror has her brother started faltering. He couldn't do that against Bishi.

Bishi blocked most of the blows, getting a cut to his arm. "Thats an interesting move. But its also a last resort move. Bad idea at the beginning of a fight." He blurred into motion again. He just seemed to be getting faster as the battle wore on. He ended a bit behind Trace and swung a blow to his spine using the hilt of his ninjato that made a resounding crack when it hit.

Trace fell to his hands and knees. "Your better than I thought." Trace was having a hard time moving at all though. He was barely able.

Rin prepared to cast the wall over Trace. He was done.

Bishi sheathed his katana and offered Trace his hand up. "That is why I am, what was it you had said? The 'hotheaded boss of a second rate guild" Well this 'second rate guild' is the reason you are under the rule of the High Council and not Korash of the Dead Swamp. Why when you steal a loaf of bread you only have to earn it back for the man and not loose a limb or your life. So think about that next time you decide to insult something someone built to protect people like you." He looked at Rin. "And you can put away your spells now. You're only draining your energy."

He must not know too much about my spells, Rin thought. They didn't drain her until she actively uses them. Trace took his hand. "Its survival. And there isn't any jobs around here to do. All the somebodies took them."

Rin walked over. "Have enough?" She smiled at Bishi.

Bishi lifted him onto his feet and then sheathed his ninjato "There is always a job to do. Even if it isn't high paying. Or pays you in something other than gold. But as I said when we first met. I still am looking for an apprentice. You and your sister will have food an lodging here, even if you don't accept. I'll see to that. But I'd recommend to her that she goes to the mages guild. Darius even shows up there sometimes to teach. You'll learn a lot from him."

"I think I'll accept your offer." Rin was amazed Trace accepted it. Anything to fight, she thought. Rin shook her head though. "I learn better on my own. And I'm staying with Trace."

Trace focused blue energy throughout himself, and immediately felt relief. The pain wasn't gone, but the bruises would be.

Bishi nodded. "Good. Training starts tomorrow. And its not gonna be easy." He sat down and rolled up his pant legs. Under them were large ankle weights. He unclipped them and dropped them to the ground next to him with a loud thunk. "Started to chaff in the fight... gotta tighten them." He looked at Rin "You'd still be able to stay with your brother, though I'd have to pull a few strings. And trust me, learning from Darius is like nothing you've ever seen before. I'm not just handy with a blade you know." He grinned some and held out his hand. The air seemed to glimmer in it then the water molecules coalesced into a shimmering orb of water above his hand before he let it go.

"If I can stay with Trace, I'll do that." Rins eyes lightened. She wanted to stay with Trace, and she never had an oppertunity like this before.

"I never expected it to be easy. And those aren't that heavy." he said, looking at them. He still had plenty of strength, especially after the restoration.

Verani reached the guild quickly. "Playing with children now, are we Bishi?" He jumped from a roof and landed next to him. His appearance seemed to darken the entire area. "The council requires your...services, shall I say? The enemy is attacking, and we need some extra firepower. You assist, I don't have to visit. Deal?"

Bishi nodded and smiled some "Good tell Darius I say hi if you see him. You should head over there soon and sign up." He turned to Trace and grinned They're heavier than you think. Those are the reasons that I was only a blur and not invisible when I was moving." When Verani came in, all traces of happiness left him. He stood and turned to Verani "You know you're not allowed in here after what happened last time Verani. And tell Darius I'll be there shortly." With that he dismissed him, turning around to face Trace and Rin "Looks like training will have to wait. Rin. Could you head to the mages guild? They will need all the help they can get."

Rin gave her brother a hug and left.

Trace sighed. "So what am I to do? I'd like to fight alongside you." He had a hopeful look in his eyes.

Bishi grinned. "That was the general plan. Though its not the start in your training I was thinking of. But it should do. Knocking off a few hundred undead shoudn't be that bad of a workout."

"Sounds fun." Trace took his blades out and started sharpening them with a metal file that he kept with him. "Let me know when we head out. I'll get prepared."

Bishi cringed when he saw the file and immediately took it from him. "You're going to destroy those blades with that." He pulled out a whetstone from his pocket and handed it to him "That will make the blade last longer and be sharper."

"sorry. I can't buy anything better." He took the whetstone and started sharpening. "much better."

Bishi nodded. Well things like that will be provided once a month for the care of your weapons. They are your life now. More so than ever. You don't have those, you are not a fighter. So keep them safe."

"Yes sir." He was feeling more and more like a student instead of a friend. He knew he had to give Bishi a lot of respect, as he just got his ass kicked.
