Blah. Chappie didn't exactly turn out how I planned but I still like it X3 Sorry about the wait, stuff just got piled onto stuff and arrrgh. so yeah. gomenasai! Oh and "..." is talking, '...' is thinking
Onii-san, I'll definetly make you proud!
Easier said than done Tabitha thought glumly from where she sat in the training hall. Shed been practicing all day, but how am I supposed to get stronger if I havent any idea how too?! she mused as kicked a wall.
OOOOOW! well that didnt help. She was frustrated, tired, thirsty, and now, her foot hurt too. Tabby idly wondered if this was what Rinvak felt like usually. Meh. She left herself fall onto her back and began to stare idly at the patterns created by sunlight coming through a window
Huh? What was that .musta dozed off or something Tabby thought groggily as she sat up and looked around. Oh, hey Rinvak. What are you doing here? She said flatly.
tripping over you Rinvak said as she sat up from her face plant. Ouch. Damn. Im bleeding. Rinvak said moodily as she wiped blood from a scrape on her forehead, Could you have picked a better place to nap? Tabby said nothing. I mean hasnt your brother ever told yo- At the mention of her brother Tabby tightened up, and looked as if she was going to cry. Aw shit, now youve done it. Rinvak thought as she internally kicked herself for her stupidity, Dont bring it up you dumbass! Be nice damnit! -u Ah ..sorry bout that. Tabby still said nothing. Damn. Now she hates me. It was so much easier when she was a spaz. Unsure of what to say, Rinvak let the awkward silence continue.
Tabby was the first to speak. Im .supposed to get stronger, make nii-san proud, but Im such an idiot, Ive got no idea how to . Tabby said as she pulled her knees to her chest, as if to make herself as small as possible.
ACK. Now shes depressed. Thats worse than hating me. What am I supposed to do? Im no good at this touchy-feely crap!!! Rinvak frantically thought. Well, a I guess I could help you or something .. She managed to mumble out. At this Tabby lifted her head and gave a small, sad smile, a fraction of its former self.
Well, where do we start? Tabby asked.
Some help you are.
Hey, Im new at this! Rinvak growled back. Tabby visibly flinched at her raised voice. Ah. Sorry . More awkward silence. Er .well is there anything you know you need help on?
Well, Ive noticed my Innocence isnt reacting as well as it usually does today.
Eh? Show me. At Rinvaks request, Tabby stood up and activated it. As it flared into life, Rinvak saw nothing wrong. If Tabby was losing control over it, there would be some sort of sign, some sign of weakness, but it looked the same as always. Well maybe its because of your low synch rate.
59 is a good number! Tabby retorted.
Oh yeah? Whats yours?
88. Rinvak smirked
Not so good anymore is it? That comment earned Rinvak a rather nasty glare she hadnt thought Tabby capable of. .er ..yeah. Well, its a good thing that youve noticed it seems odd.
Well, you never noticed that before right?
Yeah, so what?
Well, noticing it means that your actually trying to improve for once.
I guess-HEY! You make me sound like a slacker or something.
And smiling your way out of training isnt slacking? Rinvak got another glare. Tabby was going to have to stop this. The glaring was her thing, smiling was Tabbys. Well, once again youve noticed it, so youre not slacking anymore. Its an important first step.
Now you need to work on improving your synch rate.
And how would I go about doing that?
Dunno. Rinvak shrugged, Its different for everybody. The trick is to let yourself go and let the Innocence tell your mind what to do.
Tabby seemed slightly surprised at her answer, and Rinvak wondered what the hell she had thought you had to do. Well, Im off to the infirmary. My forehead is still bleeding. Rinvak frowned as she stood up and headed for the door.
Ah ..wait! Tabby called from behind her. ..Thanks.
No problem Rinvak said with a slight smile.
Nii-san, Im not giving up yet!
Can I request that next time Tabby is in a big battle, can I write a small piece of it? Becuase I've got plans. And such plans they are XD. I'm asking this becuase I'm almost positive that a big battle will happen between now and my next chapter ><
