Tina, Noah, and Rentaro aren't the only ones in this training ground.
While Tina immersed herself in sniping, she just increased the distance between herself and the target, Rentaro and Noah looked at the other corner of the training ground.
It's where the arena for sparring is built.
Kisara in her usual sailor uniform stood in opposition to Enju.
However, they were in difference stances.
Kisara lowered her center of gravity, her hand was placed upon her katana. She appeared to be in a state of focus.
Unlike Kisara, Enju only had her guard up. She looked like she's too giddy to hold herself back.
The cursed child with dolphin-strain Gastrea virus coursing within her, Kayo, acted as the referee.
Rentaro praised Kisara's stance.
"That's the Tendo Sword Style's Nirvana Clear Heart stance, an offensive stance."
Noah nodded after a glance at Kisara.
Although he knows little about the Tendo's sword skill, he absorbed countless forms of art and battle techniques through his ridiculous memory and internalization skills so he could more or less guess if her stance is defensive or offensive.
Moreover, he spotted zero gaps in her stance. No matter how Enju approached, she will be struck down by Kisara once she enters Kisara's striking range. Swift and deadly just like a bolt of metallic lightning.
Enju doesn't know about this sword skill, however, her battle intution told her to act carefully, bidding for her chance to strike.
But, her patience is her bane.
Noah and Rentaro saw her impatient look and they knew.
She's about to move.
Noah and Rentaro's prediction came true.
Her eyes turned crimson as she shot out like a mini-cannonball.
"Tendo sword style, first style, first phase!"
Kisara drew her sword with a visible sound.
She looked like she just whipped the air with her sword.
However, the next instant, a sword beam sliced through the air.
The sword beam went forward, leaving her sword.
Everyone could see it, the ranged attack that was born from a single sword slash.
Enju has never seen something like this before, a sword beam?
Even Rentaro is watching with an 'O'-shaped mouth. Meanwhile, Noah looked slightly surprised.
Kisara's mastery of her sword skill reached a level so high she can slash at her enemy at a distance.
In any case, Enju who was taught by Noah himself recovered quickly and she jumped up.
Enju dodged the attack and she flipped in the air to dive at Kisara like a torpedo.
Kisara gasped and she backed away while unleashing more sword beams.
Clang clang clang
The sword beams went after Enju like flying swords.
Kisara made a mistake.
Although she's correct when she assumed Enju can't change direction while falling down, she miscalculated Enju's action.
Enju can't dodge, but, she can ram her way through the attacks.
Enju used her varanium boots to stomp on the incoming sword beams.
She dissipated the sword beams with her boots, adding speed to her descent.
Kisara started jumping back.
But, this was a big mistake.
Enju is a rabbit-type Initiator.
Kicking isn't just her strong point, she's quick too!
When Enju landed, she immediately pounced towards Kisara. In no time at all, she closed the distance between them.
Enju kicked upwards while Kisara blocked with her sword.
Kisara's sword got kicked away.
Kayo stopped the fight.
"Enju wins the first round!"
Enju cheered as she jumped around in joy. She glomped Noah.
"Guild master! Did you see that?! I am great aren't I?!"
Noah replied with a tired look.
"Yeah, you were great."
Enju giggled while rubbing her face against Noah's chest. Tina looked a bit envious, Kayo also kept her eyes on them.
"As expected, I can't beat an Initiator, huh?"
Kisara sighed with a dejected tone. She picked up her sword and she brandished it.
"I thought I would be able win against one."
"Well, Kisara-san is strong enough to compete in an all-out duel against Enju who is already very capable even when compared to her peers. I mean, if you fight against another Initiator, the result would be different, right?"
Rentaro scratched the back of his head.
"If it were me, I would have lost in no time at all."
"That's obvious, isn't it?"
Kisara said matter-of-factly.
"I was inaugurated in the secret arts of the Tendo Sword Style since my early childhood. If I remember correctly, you're only a newcomer when it comes to attainment of the Tendo Combat Style, right?"
Rentaro looked the other way awkwardly.
Kisara is practically a master in her own arts whereas Rentaro is just scratching the surface of the Tendo Combat Style. How can the two be compared on the same level?
Noah chuckled when he saw Rentaro's low-energy vibe.
Rentaro looks like the type of male who would get henpecked after marriage.
Kayo's phone rang.
Kayo accepted the call with a calm look. She looked surprised for a moment but she quickly ended the call after a few curt responses. She approached Noah.
Kayo reported to her guild master like a proper aide.
"there is a guest here."
"Why were you taken aback by a guest?"
"Don't tell me it's that vixen, Miori?"
Kayo hesitated. She spoke up after clearing her mind.
"It's Tendo Kikunojou."
The air froze.
Rentaro yelled in shock.
Kisara's eyes flashed with malice.
Noah narrowed his eyes. He strapped his modified gun back to his waist and he gave Enju and Tina a gentle pat on the head. He started moving forward.
The others exchanged a look before they tagged along.
