Kyrad parried the attack easily. He was quite familiar with how to use a blade, though they were normally attached to his forearms. For now, he simply blocked Raven's strikes, getting a feel for her abilities, and refusing to take even a single step backwards. After a few more failed strikes, he knocked her blade aside and put the tip of his sword under her chin.

Raven backed away, red faced and embarrassed. "Well, so this is what it's like having the one thing you're passionate about blow up in your face." She felt sick and disgusted with herself. She kicked the sword a little.

"It's nothing to be ashamed of," Kyrad replied. "I'm much older than you, and I've faced many hardships. In a way, I'm glad you don't have the finely tuned instincts of a practiced killer. Anyone who can fight as well as I can has had to endure more than their share of violence."

He spun his blade once and took another few steps back. "But there's another way to look at this. Any gap between our skill levels is a chance for you to improve. The more you improve, the better you can defend those you care about."

"Hmph." Raven picked up the sword. "But what if they decide to jump in the middle of the fight anyways? Has Ramona ever done something like that to you? How did it make you feel?"

"Oh, the stories I could tell you," Kyrad replied, shaking his head. "She was insistent on joining me in every fight, even when she was less capable than you are now. It angered me to no end that I had to worry over her safety while fighting for my own life. But eventually I realized that she was going to keep getting involved as long as kept getting into trouble. So I made a decision."

He readied his sword for another assault. "I taught her how to fight."

Raven looked at her sword. She seemed to nod and got back into her stance. She charged Kyrad again, decided to switch the blade between her hands a few times before launching her attack. Each slash ended with her sword in her other hand, as if to confuse her opponent.

This time, Kyrad seemed more involved in the fight. He was forced to sidestep a few times, and the attacks he dodged were much closer than before. But still, he was able to read her attacks and respond before she could connect, and he was expending much less energy defending than she was attacking. As soon as she slowed, he lunged forward and put the point of his sword to her chest.

He paused, an inquisitive look on his face. "Have you ever tried fighting with two swords before?" he asked.

"It's a style I've heard about from the far east. Why?" Raven tilted her head. "I've tried it a few times, but it never really worked out."

"Just the way you were switching hands like that," Kyrad replied. "It didn't seem to matter which hand you attacked with, the strikes were equally deadly. It was easier to counter because I could tell where the attack was coming from, since you only have one sword."

He lowered his sword. "It's not just the fighting style that's different. The weapons they use are crafted to complement their movements. They use curved blades to generate more slashing force while maintaining momentum in combat. If you were trying to use an eastern style with western weapons, that might explain the difficulties you encountered."

"So what can I do to mimic it with western styled weapons? I mean...it's cool and all you support it, but eastern weapons as you know are very expensive." Raven answered him, leaning against the wall of the ship.

"They're expensive because they're rare, and they're rare because there's no demand for them," Kyrad replied. He held up the wooden sword and stared at it. His other hand made a few strange motions, and the wood began to twist and warp. The blade grew, then twisted into a curved blade. He pointed at the other sword in Raven's hand and it followed suit.

"I believe these are called scimitars," he said, holding out the second blade so Raven had two. "Give them a try. See how they feel."

Raven gave them a few practice swings, doing a quick short workout. Once she was done though, she seemed to smile. "It'd be pretty cool to use the real things. Kyrad, I don't know how to thank you."

"Keep training," Kyrad replied. "I'll see if I can't forge some metal ones when we get some time. And don't get mad when I start really pushing you."

"...I might just a little bit." Raven answered sheepishly. She turned to look at the captain's cab. "Want me to grab the others? Or would you want to check on Ramona?"

"I'll poke my head in and see how she's doing," Kyrad replied. "You go ahead and relieve Ren at the helm. He should get some sleep."

He headed over and silently opened the door. For a moment, he stood there, looking to see if both Ramona and Cloud were asleep.
