Bite me.

They kinda laugh at it and act like it when a kid rides his bike for the first time, endearing and brings warm memories to their own minds. Kenny-boy is promptly wondering what is wrong with these people.

But they do say that if you have a month, then you'll be WAAAAAAYYYYY!!!! more than ready for this punk. Neither of you like the glints in their eyes.

Like they were going to go any easier...

And I'd like to start manufacturing evidence that if used will make Nijima the most hated person in school bar none. Just in case I need to destroy him utterly.

No clue what else I could say, really. Ken and I could definitely use a hot soak before turning in. He can have his first. In the meantime, I'll let Niijima know investigation into Miu's background is proceeding apace.

He's overjoyed and tells you that the next release he 'finds' will come about three days sooner than expected.

After my bath, I'll probably just collapse, though I'll try to stay conscious long enough to set our alarm. Since it's Sunday tomorrow, well, might as well get our money's worth and get back to building basics at the dojo.

... it's got totally nothing to do with my recently realized short kimono fetish. Nothing at all.

Whelp you proceed to do yet more strength and physical fitness training which is almost as brutal and you swear you head hammers while you're doing pushups with a 20lb weight on your back.

Unless you want to say or do anything specific today it goes without incident though Kenichi is howling every so often.

The NEXT day though, you and Kenichi enter school and who should you be all but by but Nijima, who seems to be in a happy mood about something.

...Well now they're EXCITED about it. And it's about as painful and gruesome as you would imagine. Weighted pushups, hanging crunches with a fire to keep you moving, and basic movement drills ad infinitum. Akisame, Kensei, and Appachai seem to be the most excited about it, though Appachai is told repeatedly that since he CAN'T hold back he'd likely squish the both of you.

Anything you want to do or add?

And I'd like to start manufacturing evidence that if used will make Nijima the most hated person in school bar none. Just in case I need to destroy him utterly.

Well first you'd have to gather info on Nijima himself, he's an...odd character, his folks own a sci-fi theme restaurant, he's an obvious genious particularly in tech and information gathering though he's got worse grades than a dispirited Kenichi, he's not all that strong or physically capable but if he has to run away the guy could outrun Olympic sprinters if he had to.

If it'll calm her down, I'll ask her if she wants to come with us tomorrow and see for herself that the masters at the dojo aren't bad people, peculiar though they may be.

He's overjoyed and tells you that the next release he 'finds' will come about three days sooner than expected.

I let him know we'll talk once we're somewhere where we won't be overheard or potentially recorded.

"GRIT THOSE TEETH, Ken!"

A little humor helps deal with the situation ... so I hope ... no, no it doesn't ... ow, my everything.

I keep attention on proper breathing pace during the training. If Ken and I have any energy at all, I'll suggest that we wind down with the kind of practice we did to prepare for the -monji duo. Given that we've now experienced the tender instruction of kind and gentle master Kotetsuji (*koff* horrible horrible sadist *koff*) that training routine should be a soothing light breeze.

And if we're too broken down to manage it, we do it in the morning, before school. Should help with muscle pains.

The NEXT day though, you and Kenichi enter school and who should you be all but by but Nijima, who seems to be in a happy mood about something.

I give him a beatific smile in response, which momentarily freezes and goes away as if it had never been there, replaced by a flat deadpan expression.

"I know that look, Haruo. It's the look that says 'oh, I need to tell Katsu what I just did in detail or he'll enact Mutually Assured Destruction Option 1 and inform the girls' volleyball team about the origin point of certain picture sets'."

While I'm mostly guessing about the pictures, they were a thing and I'm reasonably certain I can by now recognize a Niijima-shot photograph with a certainty approaching unity.

Smile again.

"Also, good morning, dear friend and compatriot."

Name: Shirahama Kanata

Identical or fraternal twins?
Background:
Could I get a mix of B and C? Basically, Kenichi and I don't have much to do with each other due to differing personalities and interests (I didn't try to join the karate-club, for example), but pull through for each other whenever it really counts.
Also, I figure I have a preference for using weapons or tools whenever possible, such as throwing bottles or cans at bullies, or grabbing a stick to hit them with. Helps so the beatdowns aren't completely one-sided, and occasionally even won, or avoided entirely; some unarmed kid is a perfect target for bullies. A kid with a crowbar? Less so.

You start your day running like the hounds of hell are on your heels, you both overslept and now you're gonna be late for school, as you run you see a flash of blonde hair before an arm enters you're vision for a split second and the both of you get flipped ass over tea kettle.

In your daze you hear, "AH! SORRY my body reacted on its own!" from what sounds like a girl around your age.
"...what just happened?" I asked in a slight daze. Slowly replaying the situation in my mind, I can't help frowning. "What did we do that you just had to throw us down?!"

Too broken for the time being, though the light warm up does wonders though starting off aches like mad.

His smile slides off while Miu and Kenichi seem mortified at the implications. "Alright, just thought I wanted to warn you two that Tsukuba (Not Chukuba) is planning on waiting for you at the school gate after class and he might even search your classroom later on if he doesn't find you immediately". Kenichi pales a bit, and it's daunting even to you, Tsukuba could wipe the floor with you right now, you're going to have to avoid him until you're sure that you can take him on.

Your brother understands that the two of you aren't the closest but it's given him strength in life that he knows you've got his back when the shit hits the fan. He's not bullied as badly as he would have been otherwise what with most local toughs not willing to face a bat to the face. Though lately the number of bullies on the two of you are much less frequent, though you've been hearing of nasty rumors about large-scale gang battles with nearly all of them armed about as well as you on your best days.

"...what just happened?" I asked in a slight daze. Slowly replaying the situation in my mind, I can't help frowning. "What did we do that you just had to throw us down?!"

"Nothing, I'm so sorry about that, that's just a reflex of mine if someone comes up behind me. But isn't that what you're supposed to do?" The owner of that surprisingly attractive sounding voice is an equally attractive blonde with her hair in a long braid all the wall down her back, she also wears a pair of glasses and her very well developed form is in a school uniform that you're pretty sure is from you're school.

Before you respond though, Kenichi suddenly yelps about his books and starts to scramble to pick up the half dozen self-help books that he's always carrying around.

I get the feeling that it's not nearly everything he did, and I've known him long enough to realize he's very much going to fuel the fires if he ends up having some way to benefit. And he usually has _some_ way of benefiting, no matter the situation.

Still, I suppose this means we need some place to eat lunch that isn't our classroom (there are probably a few club-rooms that go unused, so that's not a major issue), and will have to rely on sneaky feet, ninja feet for now. Ah. Not-so-sweet nostalgia.

Not really...

Well first you'd have to gather info on Nijima himself, he's an...odd character, his folks own a sci-fi theme restaurant, he's an obvious genious particularly in tech and information gathering though he's got worse grades than a dispirited Kenichi, he's not all that strong or physically capable but if he has to run away the guy could outrun Olympic sprinters if he had to.

Wanted to join a few days ago, but was busy.

Though lately the number of bullies on the two of you are much less frequent, though you've been hearing of nasty rumors about large-scale gang battles with nearly all of them armed about as well as you on your best days.
Kanata:
Yeah, I'd alright heard about the gangs. On one hand, less attempts at bullying were great. On the other, it also made me kinda jumpy, because it meant that if something actually happened, it would involve numbers we'd be pretty much powerless against. It's one of the reasons I'd picked up jogging lately; if you couldn't win, a tactical retreat (aka 'Running Away') was often the best option, but that didn't work if I'd collapse after just a hundred meters. Too bad I couldn't convince Kenichi to do the same, but he said he'd be too busy with the Karate-club.

"Nothing, I'm so sorry about that, that's just a reflex of mine if someone comes up behind me. But isn't that what you're supposed to do?"

Before you respond though, Kenichi suddenly yelps about his books and starts to scramble to pick up the half dozen self-help books that he's always carrying around.
"Yeah, no," I answered sarcastically while quickly checking if my things were still alright. Mobile didn't look cracked, and the knife was still in my pocked - didn't like using it, but there wasn't always a convenient bat or pipe nearby for me to grab when bullies appeared. "Reflex is something like pulling your hand away from a flame or the like. Not complex maneuvers like grabbing people and throwing them down."

Crouching down, I told her, "If you're actually sorry, you could help us pick up my brother's books."

Normally I might have been nicer and paid more attention to her looks - seriously, she was hot; those breasts of her were huge! - but she had just thrown me around, and on top of that I'd stayed up late last night (again), so I was rather grouchy at the moment.
Eh, Kenichi will handle that, no doubt. He's usually nice enough for the both of us.

For the next several weeks you've learned just every hiding place and alternate route through the school, the only other alternatives are to mimic Altair's bloodline and learn EXTREME parkour and follow Miu when she REALLY want to get a move on. While you've gotten better at following her the two of you are still not ANYWHERE good enough to do that though even Kenichi, who's not ever really keen on that sort of thing is starting to see the virtues in being able to pull stunts like that off.

Each day after school and most of the weekends you train your asses off the two of you, but after two weeks a slight hickup happens when Honoka shows up ready for almost anything, or so she thinks.

Well the first time you spar with him, he offers to simply have you hit some hand pads, but unfortunately you are suddenly given DODGE lessons and you black out almost instantly.

Well about two weeks of this your fullday Sunday routine is interrupted by Honoka showing up concerned about her big brothers always coming home beaten to a seeming pulp, and Kenichi having nervous breakdowns every time he realizes he's home.

Appachai with anything more involved than holding the heavy bag is a very bad idea.

And their hands.... Which will try and touch you..." My eyes start to glow "And then their hands will have to removed... from their bodies..."


Long project then...

I want to be able to fuck him over royally by the fight.

I'm also going to, after the fight, make it clear that if his vulcan ass does anything stupid like spread rumors about us then the integrity of his kneecaps as well as his ability to eat solid food will both be seriously imperiled...

"Damn," I exclaim when Kenichi reminds me of the reason why we'd been running in the first place. Being flipped over had been distracting, admittedly, but I still shouldn't have just forgotten that this quickly. Guess I really should stop going to bed so late.

"Wait for me!" I shout as I run after him.

He doesn't but he's constantly glancing at Sebastian's resting place.

Well if you ain't Altair and Ezio, trying to follow her, the two of you have become at least skilled mountain climbers.

And if and when Ken and I aren't entirely knackered from training, I insist we keep up our self-training drills in what little we've been taught/figured out of technique so far.

Snowy seems to mollify her a bit but she promptly goes into a tizzy when she meets Miu.

Kanata:
Well, if he thinks it'll help him? At least he seems to stick with it so far, and if it helps him build his self-confidence, all the better. Maybe ask how it's going, later.

Well he's getting 'how to take a hit' training in spades.

"Damn," I exclaim when Kenichi reminds me of the reason why we'd been running in the first place. Being flipped over had been distracting, admittedly, but I still shouldn't have just forgotten that this quickly. Guess I really should stop going to bed so late.

"Wait for me!" I shout as I run after him.

Well you get there late the both of you and are promptly made to wait outside. To your surprise though, the girl you met earlier is sitting in the classroom, apparently beating you to class and getting there on time.

You hear her introduce herself as Miu Fuurinji, she says that she just transferred from the best school in town, and you wonder why she transferred here.

After clubs, you notice that Kenichi has gotten the crud beaten out of him, and he's got a concerned look on his face.

Now STOP THEM!

Please note, considering his origin, it would probably make him furious at the idea of kids being kidnapped... it would probably invoke REAL ANGER in him making it hard for him to hold back.

PROTECT THE CHILDREN APPACHAI!

I do make sure to comfort him after each go, remind him its not real, and tell him he's training so if, when he sees this for real... he'll be able to show his true heroic nature. He's a good man and my valued friend.

HWUGS!

He doesn't but he's constantly glancing at Sebastian's resting place.

"If Sabastian is needed, I'll give the two of you a call. Until then, believe in me who believes in you!"

"Onii-chan...you're scaring me..."

"Men are perverts," I say calmly, "Being a man I am very aware of this, and some do not honor the delicate flower of womanhood and would pluck it without thought, doing harm for the sake of their own selfish desires..." my eyes narrow. "You do know why there are woman only cars on the train... and you're coming of the age were the most foul of perverts will attempt to... let their hands wander.

I pause. "Yes, I do see how much milk you drink, little sister, and I know its not for strong teeth and bones."

If I get her to agree I want her to effectively train under Mui for a while as an unofficial student.

MAYBE ask Shigure if she's willing to do a little low level training. She's not ready for the other masters.

In general though, I intend to point to them and send the message "And that's what martial arts can do for your body!"

Appeal to her vanity when it comes to learning to kick ass!

Well he DOES make a bunch of back ups of stuff when he does his info gathering so you're going to have to be thorough when you start...

I want to make my own backups of his backups and steal them.

I will allow him to operate but I will not tolerate a threat. I'm the alpha spy here...

I don't know about Ken, but I intend to make it my primary method of transit at some point. To that end, my evening reading list now includes articles about parkour, discussing movement techniques particularly. It should make for good reference material, and further, it's good whole-body practice.

Well the few times that you ain't dead on your feet you mostly do walkthroughs of the couple of moves that you've been taught.

Good. That's important.

I also start practicing - mostly on my own, as I don't want to slip up and hurt Ken by accident - something I'd been considering for the -monji fight but turned down because I didn't yet have the kind of physical conditioning to pull it off right. The stepping technique's spin is nearly ideal for setting up an elbow strike if you take it just a little further.

Snowy seems to mollify her a bit but she promptly goes into a tizzy when she meets Miu. Miu finds her adorable while Honoka thinks that she's seducing the two of you and now images of the two of you beating the crap out of each other while Miu watches on high like some decadent Roman lady watching gladiators fighting to the death flash through her head.

I pat Honoka's head and tell her that while I suspect Ken is more than a bit smitten by Duchess, I'm here for Kosaka-sensei myself.

"It's sad, imouto. Your brothers are shallow like that."

Then I tell her to grab hold of my wrist and lift her up from the ground like that, holding the arm up without much effort at all.

"Also, we can now do this, which you have to admit is kind of awesome."

Speaking of which, I'm a little suspicious ... I'd been noticing this for a while now, especially while trying to follow Miu taking her shortcuts, but there's no way we should be this far along where conditioning is concerned. We should be masses of bruises barely able to move.

In the evening I corner Akisame-sensei and ask him specifically about this rate of advancement.

Okay, now I'm kinda curious how she managed that. It can't have been her just running faster than us, or we would've seen her, so she probably has some kind of shortcut or the like she used. Oh, well, Kenichi's higher priority.

"So, what happened?" I ask him bluntly.

Well after three weeks of physical training, it seems that Akisame and the others have decided that it's high time for you to start learning techniques.

Sakaki, amazingly is the one to volunteer to start teaching you first and while you work with him, you find you surprise that the guy can be a big softy, once you get to know him, and you aren't trying to fight bio-chemical warfare against him.

Well your answer is that basically, they're just that damn good at training the two of you, that and they can put you back together really well. He mentions that if one were trained hard enough ANYONE could reach these levels, BUT it takes an utterly INSANE level of work and dedication for those who don't have an innate talent for the arts, which the both of you have been told you don't have. Though he does concede that the two of you are stupendously ....tough for your age and ability, you can take a relatively incredible amount of punishment and keep going. Of course THAT will not matter a whit if you don't train constantly as there are plenty out there who could STILL crush you like a bug.

Kenichi sees you and rushes over to you in a blind panic, he grabs your shoulder and in a deluge of panicked babbling, tells you that Daimonji, a massive freshmen who looks like some 80s action film character, basically forced him to agree to a match with him, the loser having to quit the club. He's got a week to try and beat that giant monster, HE DOESN'T HAVE A PRAYER!!!!

Miu just so happens to walk over ask say hello, you might have to answer as Kenichi seems to be about ready to have a nervous breakdown.

Ah, now Kenichi coming back bruised from club more often than not made a lot more sense. Less training, more bullying-pretending-to-be-training. Don't most clubhouses and other schoolfacilities have fire extinguishers? I wonder how this 'Daimonji' guy would like me to introduce his face to the fire extinguisher in a more intimate manner?

More importantly though, at least for the moment; help out my brother. A few more questions on my part later I think I got a fairly good picture of his situation in the karate club, and it certainly isn't pretty. Of course, it has a fairly simple solution, but I'm not sure Kenichi's gonna like it. Actually, I'm kind of expecting him to dislike it;
"Why don't you just quit? Not karate entirely, but the club for it here at school; it certainly doesn't look like you're getting any real training there. Instead, you could see about joining a proper dojo here in town. It'd probably be difficult to convince mom and dad, but at least you'd get something actually worthwhile out of it. And if you're concerned about looking like a coward" - which would be idiotic in my opinion, since Kenichi's fear sounded very much justified, but human minds don't always work that way, unfortunately - "you could always make a brief stop at the karate-club in a week, after you've gotten some training."

By then, Miu approaches, which is actually quite convenient.
"Ah, hello, Fuurinji-san," I greet her neutrally. I might not have been thrilled at what she did, but on the other hand she seemed genuinely sorry, and I hadn't exactly been the picture of politeness myself. "Say, would you know of any good martial arts dojos in town? Or perhaps someone who might know?"

One week, the first move you finally learn is one called the Yamatzuki, which according to Sakaki, the Karate guys won't see it coming, since it's not something that used anymore.

I look forward to publicly humiliating this asshole while Ken deals with the Karate club.

Well Kensei and Appachai also show you and Kenny some moves themselves, Kensei's is one that allow you to grab the leg of an opponent when they try to kick along with getting your head under his ribcage.

Akisame also puts the both of you on statue flipping detail, which after a couple of days you realize are getting bigger and bigger, Kenichi seems a bit indignant though Akisame mentions that one should always keep moving forward with their training

Though he does pull this stunt off.

But the move IS a good one, besides the headspin...

Well when you get home, Kenichi manages to talk Honoka into translating the thing. Want to do anything before you head out, Kenichi ain't going out there alone.
Well, apparently my search-fu needs more work. Make sure to praise Honoka for her talent, and suggest that she might look into a career in cryptography when she gets older. If she can make sense of something like... that, then coded messages and missives should be a breeze. Promise that we'll bring her a treat when we get back, then move out to find the place.

I'm right and they know it...

He does manage it.

Yeah!

So he safe to spar with yet?

And next we play catch. I throw him eggs and he catches them without breaking them! They will be mixed with red dyed eggs which are hard boiled and to be deflected using his mad kick boxing skills to force him to move between martial arts strikes and gentleness with a moment's thought!

Your older brother is wise. Trust in his wisdom.

snerk

That does seem to mollify her.

My message, genetics is with you. So trust in time and have as fit a body as possible to get the best of it.

I'd like to ask Miu to train her.

She's not ready to be a disciple, might never will be, but she could use some of the basics...

And the gleams in you and pops eyes make the others facepalm.

My job as elder brother. His job as father.

If you can catch him.

I ask the weapons mistress to help me master the bolo... Smile

Interestingly he can't build up a resistance, the heat never seems to abate for him or lesson, he's in agony every time but he's too bull stubborn to admit defeat.

Does he need a manly spicy food training regime?

If so I can come up with one...

One week, the first move you finally learn is one called the Yamatzuki, which according to Sakaki, the Karate guys won't see it coming, since it's not something that used anymore.

As this is not sports Karate, perfect.

Though I intent to badly injure him and let them know now.

The reason why is this...

I give them information on all the innocents he'd beaten over the years (research) including the middle school children he's brutalized.

Bones will be broken unless they tell me not to.

Well Kensei and Appachai also show you and Kenny some moves themselves, Kensei's is one that allow you to grab the leg of an opponent when they try to kick along with getting your head under his ribcage.

can Miu-chan help me practice? H_H

I mirror that. If something becomes easy, then you should move onto something hard, because if you only do what is easy you never challenge your limits!

Though he does pull this stunt off.

She preens under the praise.

When you head out you follow the translated directions almost flawlessly to where you need to go.

Which happens to be a large wall with massive red gate over which is painted the name Ryozanpaku. Those doors don't move.

Safe...yes...painful....well....

He catches it quickly enough.

My message, genetics is with you. So trust in time and have as fit a body as possible to get the best of it.

HA

Miu DOES like the idea of 'playing' with Honoka

My job as elder brother. His job as father.

Heh

She seems almost happy to teach ya, though she still scares the crap out of you.

Does he need a manly spicy food training regime?

If so I can come up with one...

"NO NO! I'm Fine I'll just eat something else. No need to do something crazy kid."

As this is not sports Karate, perfect.

They don't like your intentions that much...

The reason why is this...

I give them information on all the innocents he'd beaten over the years (research) including the middle school children he's brutalized.

Bones will be broken unless they tell me not to.

...until they see the pictures, then they say just don't kill the dolt or permanently damage him.

can Miu-chan help me practice? H_H

Kenny actually glares at you for half a second.

I mirror that. If something becomes easy, then you should move onto something hard, because if you only do what is easy you never challenge your limits!

"See your brother gets the mentality, you should listen to him."

Dirty old bastard... I gotta try that on some time... Wink

Well is there anything specific you want to do before the fight? Otherwise I'll set it up next post.

He needs to work on his control a bit but that'll come with time.

So, what do they think of my tendency to come up with insane but effective training methods?

I have one in mind that could help with speed but I'm not ready for it yet.

Still, should anyone see a good sale on chestnuts let me know.

He catches it quickly enough.

And it should help him with his level of gentleness as well.

Miu DOES like the idea of 'playing' with Honoka

How does Honoka like playing with Miu?

I do tell her "you could have a body like that"

She seems almost happy to teach ya, though she still scares the crap out of you.

She scares the crap out of me? Since when?

All of them can kill me here. She'd just be damned sexy while she does it. Frankly I try and make friends with her, even if I perv a little from time to time.

"NO NO! I'm Fine I'll just eat something else. No need to do something crazy kid."

"But I wanted to show you my Buffalo wings..." Sad

They're manly bar food! Very Happy


They don't like your intentions that much...

...until they see the pictures, then they say just don't kill the dolt or permanently damage him.

Oh, I don't intend to cripple him for life or anything...

Does six months in a body cast followed by another three relearning how to walk count as permanent?

Not going to cripple him... just give him some time to reevaluate his life. ^_^

I believe that the duty of a Martial Artist is to protect the weak and I intend to do so by ensuring that this muscle bound thug will never hurt another innocent...

Either he'll learn his lesson or I'll just beat him until he does!

Kenny actually glares at you for half a second.

Bah! Philistine!

"See your brother gets the mentality, you should listen to him."

"Oh, I love lazy just you need to time it... and if somethings worth doing, it's probably going to be a total bitch to get it done."

Well is there anything specific you want to do before the fight? Otherwise I'll set it up next post.

Not really.

Heh. Thank the big guy and then try to use his advice in practice.

Well it's working for you and Kenny ain't it?

True. That's probably the only reason I actually believe it.

Well the meditation seems to calm yourself after a long day of training.

Always useful. Anyway, it seems like things are progressing nicely. Next on the list of people to talk to is Sakaki. I ask him whether he has any tips on fighting karateka, then go on to describe Tsukuda in as much detail as I can. If Niijima sent over any pictures of videos of the guy fighting, I show those to Sakaki as well.

...okay, who the hell needs such large - and heavy - doors!? What's this supposed to be, an ancient castle?!
Alright, so pushing, even with the two of us, didn't do anything, and trying to shoulder-tackle would probably just end up painful. Hammering against it with a fist to "knock", then shouting over it.
If that doesn't work, ask Kenichi to give us a leg up so we can climb onto the wall, maybe catch attention that way. We will not be denied after Honoka went through the trouble of translating that map for us!
