Kazuki was in class with the girls, sitting in the center of the room. He was hit on the head by a paper ball before it fell into his hand. Kazuki blinked as he opened the note and it read: "Wanna go hang out at the arcade after school? From Sakura and Allenby." He looked back to see the two girls waving at him and he nervously waved back with a chuckle.
Another paper ball hit his cheek and he opened the note. This one read: "How flexible are you? Maybe we could have a wrestling match and find out. From Mika." He looked to the side and saw Mika by the window, cracking her knuckles with a grin, making Kazuki cringe slightly.
Another note hit him again and his eye twitched as Kazuki inspected the paper. It read: "Hey Ryuunosuke-kun, are you single? Kallen would like to get to know you better. From Shirley." Kazuki turned around and saw Shirley waving with a childish grin as Kallen looked away with a creeping blush by the corner of the room.
Another note, yet again, fell onto Kazuki's desk. When he inspected the note, it read: "How about I show you the pleasures of a real woman~? Kazetsubaki Kuriko." Kazuki just sweat-dropped at that.
Tessa sat next to Kazuki and noticed his stress, "Are you alright, Ryuunosuke-san?"
Kazuki dumbly nodded, "Yeah, I'm fine, Tessa…" He then sighed to himself, 'I better clear this up before something bad happens…'
"You want me to go to school with you?" Kotonoha asked.
"Yeah, it's the only solution I can think of," Kazuki sighed. "They won't believe me if I told them I have a girlfriend without proof, and frankly I'm scared that if I don't do something, I might have another stampede on my hands." He then grasped her hand pleadingly, "I don't want you to think I'm cheating on you in school, Kotonoha. I would never do that to you."
"You're so sweet," she smiled before kissing him. "You're not just my fiancée, Kazuki-kun. You're my best friend and you always will be."
"Hime-chan…" he smiled.
"Ryuu-kun…" she blushed.
They soon shared a passionate kiss, their tongues dancing in their locked mouths as they sat on their bed. Kotonoha gently pushed Kazuki down on his back as she reached into his pajama pants and pulled his already-hard erection, stroking the solid meat as Kazuki shivered from her touch. She smirked as she jerked him off, enjoying the pleasured look on her fiancée's face. She then bent down to envelop his cock in her warm mouth, lapping his muscle with her tongue as Kazuki grunted from the wet warmth that covered his manhood. He put a hand on Kotonoha's head as she began to bob her head on him, blowing Kazuki as she sucked on his head and licking it.
"Koto-chan…" he grunted.
She sucked his cock one more time before her mouth was flooded with his white-hot seed, gulping it down as she savored the flavor and hummed on his cock to keep him up. Once she released him, Kazuki turned Kotonoha over onto her back, sliding a pillow under her back for support, as he dove in and started eating her out, making her gasp from the sudden action as she felt his tongue inside her folds. He quickly upped the ante by inserting his fingers in her sweet hole, making her moan as he licked at her now-hard clit. Her moans grew louder in volume as she bucked her hips, pushing her crotch into his face as he continued kneading the erogenous bud. Her core grew hotter as she leaked her fluids from below, Kazuki sipping her juices gently as he felt Kotonoha shiver with pleasure.
"Kazuki-kun…" she called. "Cumming…!"
And came she did as her orgasm overcame her, her fluids flowing from her hot well as Kazuki drank. Kotonoha panted as she tried to catch her breath, her face fully blushing as Kazuki laid beside her, the two exchanging good-night kisses before drifting off to their slumber.
It was Sunday and Kazuki, Kotonoha, and Kokoro were sitting in a park in the Red Horse Private Institute.
"This place is really amazing," Kotonoha marveled as she looked around. "I never thought a school could own so much property."
"I was surprised when I first came here too," Kazuki nodded.
"It's really fun here, Onee-chan," Kokoro beamed.
"Kazuki!" Sakura called as she was followed by Ibuki, Lunamaria, Meyrin, Shirley, Kallen, and Allenby.
"Who are they?" Redder asked.
"Kazuki's classmates," War-Rock answered.
"They sure look cute," the dragon FM mused. "If Kazuki doesn't want them, maybe I could help myself to such beauties."
War-Rock looked at his friend skeptically, "You and what body?"
"Meh, an FM can dream," Redder shrugged.
"We're here!" Sakura grinned.
"Once she told us that you were gonna introduce us to your girlfriend," Shirley beamed, "Kallen and I just had to tag along!" She turned to one of the three redheads and apologized sympathetically, "Sorry, Kallen. I did my best."
Kallen blushed and shook her head, "It's alright."
Kazuki stood up and wrapped an arm around her shoulder, "This Katsura Kotonoha, my fiancée."
"Kon'nichiwa, minna-san," she bowed.
"Fiancée?-!" the girls chorused.
"That's amazing," Allenby gaped.
"So soon…?" Lunamaria could only say.
"My goodness," Shirley awed, "And she's pregnant…! Wow, I can't believe you two have gotten that far in your relationship!"
"Wow," Ibuki breathed, "How far along are you?"
"5 months," Kotonoha smiled.
"Is it a boy or a girl?" Meyrin asked with a smile.
"Onee-chan is having twins," Kokoro bragged. "A boy AND a girl!"
"Looks like somebody's gonna be a daddy soon," Lunamaria teased.
Kazuki nodded, "You got that right!"
"So how long have you two known each other?" Shirley inquired.
"Since we were five," Kotonoha answered.
"Aw, a childhood romance~!" she cooed.
"That is so cool," Ibuki beamed, "I wish I had a childhood friend like that!"
"I bet you're real lucky to have a girl like Kotonoha-san, Kazuki," Allenby grinned as she patted his shoulder.
"You have no idea," he nodded.
"So when are you two getting married?" Meyrin asked.
"Well, we haven't decided yet," Kotonoha answered, "But hopefully it'll be after the babies are born."
"Can we come to the wedding?" the girls asked in unison.
Kotonoha and Kazuki looked at each other and turned back to smile. "I don't see why not," Kazuki smiled.
Kazuki blinked as he stood on a mountain path, seeing nothing but mountains as far as the eye could see.
"Where am I this time?" he asked himself, knowing no one would answer.
Kazuki ducked a lightning strike that destroyed some of the mountain wall that was behind him as thunder roared. He looked to the sky and saw black clouds that spat bolts of blue lightning. "Those clouds don't look good," he grimaced. "War-Rock! Koto-chan!" he called, only to hear his echoes reply. "OK, I'm on my own, obviously," he sighed. He then heard more rumbling and looked to the sky again as he saw Seiryuu swimming through the clouds. The dragon reared its head and spat lightning at Kazuki, making him panic and jump before he was blasted. "What the hell?-!" Seiryuu flew lower and spat more lightning; making Kazuki run as the dragon chased him down, firing more lightning at his mortal reincarnation. "I don't think he's in a talkative mood…" he groaned.
That was when he slipped and fell down the mountainside, screaming as he plummeted downward.
Kazuki's shot open as he sat up. He was sitting on a floor covered with smooth pebbles as a waterfall was just beside him. He looked around and realized he was in a ravine, with mountain walls surrounding him as with trees and even a lake.
"Nice place," he muttered. He then heard growling and gulped as he turned to his left. In the middle of the lake crouching on the flat top of a giant rock, was a shadowed creature. Its shape appeared reptilian, and it had a horizontal visor for an eye as it glowed bright red, staring hungrily at Kazuki. He also saw shiny white teeth as drool escaped its mouth. Kazuki could also make out a tail that swung from side to side.
"Um, I take it this is your place…?" Kazuki piped as he tried to back away.
The creature didn't answer as it lunged for Kazuki, with its mouth wide open.
"GAH!" Kazuki cried as he shot up from his slumber, covered in sweat as his hair stuck to his forehead from the moisture.
"Kazuki-kun, what's wrong?" Kotonoha asked as she hugged him close.
"You look like you've seen a ghost," War-Rock said from inside the Wave Scanner.
"I'm alright…" he breathed. "Just had a really weird nightmare."
"I hope it wasn't like that time we met Ranma-san," she hoped.
"No, it wasn't," he denied. He looked down, "Ah, I'm all sweaty… I'll be in the shower." And he left the bed to enter the bathroom.
As she heard the sound of the shower running, Kotonoha whispered, "I'm worried about him…"
"Of course you are," Redder spoke. "You're his bride to be."
"Besides, I'm sure he'll tell us when he's ready," War-Rock assured.
"I hope so…" Kotonoha nodded.
Ryuki observed as Kazuki came down for breakfast.
"Rough night?" Ryuki asked.
"No," Kazuki lied. Ryuki looked at him sternly and Kazuki confessed, "Yes."
"Did Kazu-niichan have a bad dream?" asked Ryutaro.
"Did you?" asked Kokoro.
"Well?" Ryuki prompted.
"OK, I had a bad dream," Kazuki confessed.
"Well, that explains it."
"It explains why I felt your Ki spike last night. Must've been a very intense nightmare. Care to elaborate?"
"Try very weird," Kazuki retorted. "I was stuck in a mountainous terrain when Seiryuu suddenly attacks me without warning. Then I fell and woke up in a ravine just as quickly. Although, I somehow made the lizard thing kind of mad and it wanted me for lunch. Or breakfast...maybe dinner... It's one of those anyway..."
"Dreams like that, especially for psychics, could be a message or signs of things to come," Ryuki informed.
"You think so?"
He nodded, "Hai, the same thing happened to me. Days before I became a Zodiac Knight I had a dream just like yours. I was being chased by a dragon and it was trying to fry me with its flames. I woke up as soon as the fire hit me."
"Ow," Kazuki winced.
"Then I found the deck and saw the same dragon in the reflections. Turns out those dreams were telling me that I would soon meet my Zodiac Beast, my partner."
"So you're saying that lizard thing is out there, waiting for me?" he grimaced.
"I'm saying that you should find meaning in these dreams and find out if they are telling you what your destiny is or are just random images," Ryuki clarified.
Ryuki went on the phone that could connect to any other phone in the Multiverse.
"Hello, Ryuji, is that you?" he asked.
"You did call me," Ryuji pointed out."What's up?"
"It's about Kazuki. Last night his Ki signature spiked but it also felt like yours."
"I mean that for a second it felt like Genki (Mythical Ki)," he clarified.
"Sounds serious. Are you sure?"
"Not 100% sure, but..." the Hasuma hesitated.
"I'll go over and check for myself," Ryuji placated."Just keep an eye on him until I get there. Remember that Genki in the hands of the untrained can become unstable."
"Speaking from experience?"
"Yes, so be prepared for a berserker," he warned."I know you like this kid but you gotta admit that is a possibility."
"I know. Ja ne," he nodded before hanging up.
"Now, before we begin today's lesson, Kazuki, I wish to educate you on my clan's history," said Ryuki. He was in a red gi with a black belt tied around his waist. The back of his gi sported a golden dragon design. Kazuki was similarly dressed, only in blue, with a silver dragon design on his back. His belt was white to signify he was a beginner in this school. They were seated across from each other in the seiza position.
"I'm listening," said Kazuki. "Fire away."
"Centuries ago there were three brothers who started the Hasuma Clan with the eldest of the three becoming the head. The other two brothers acted as his advisors and each of them created a different branch for the Hasuma Clan's School of Combat Arts. The first school, created by the eldest, was the Confrontational Combat School. The 2nd eldest created the Defense and Protection Combat School and the youngest created the Stealth and Hidden School." Ryuki saw Kazuki listening with great attention and continued, "Confrontation, Defense and Stealth became the three foundations of the Hasuma Clan's School of Combat Arts. However, achieving true mastery of all three schools would take many years so the brothers helped each other. While they each built a foundation on their own schools, they supplemented their skills with each other's abilities. Thus, the eldest was a master of the Confrontational Style while supplementing in Defense and Stealth and the other two did the same as he did. Thus they were a balance trinity. Eventually, the three brothers went separate ways to spread their teachings all across Japan and even across the sea."
"Sugoi," Kazuki was enraptured.
"OK, so is there more?" asked War-Rock.
Ryuki continued, "There is more to the family history and this was before the eldest became Clan Head. You see, before they started the clan they had to fight a fearsome fire demon known as an Efreet which had travelled to Japan. It spread fear, terror and death through the use of hellfire. The three brothers fought with all they had but they could only weaken the demon, not vanquish it. Finally, as an act of complete selflessness, the eldest offered up his body to the demon and sealed the demon within himself, acting as a willing vessel to keep it at bay. However, the seal would be broken upon his death and in order to prevent the demon from escaping he would need to create a failsafe."
"What sort of failsafe?" asked Kazuki.
"The demon would be transferred via the eldest's bloodline into his next born son," answered Ryuki. Kazuki was stunned. "He had a child who would become the next head of the clan upon his passing, and also the host to the demon. This went on for centuries with the demon being trapped but then when my father became the host he did something different."
"What do you mean by 'different'?" asked War-Rock.
"My ancestors before my father ignored the demon but my father was the first to willingly establish contact with it. They formed a good rapport. All the demon ever wanted was company and a way to interact with the outside world. Being trapped in the darkness like that wasn't something anyone enjoyed so my father pitied him. Some would say he was insane but my father saw good in the demon and even gave him a name. The demon was named 'Yaminekoryu' and swore to my father he would protect the clan in gratitude for being granted some sense of freedom and a name," Ryuki finished.
"Wait…does that mean you…?" Kazuki realized.
Ryuki smiled, "I was the last host for the demon which now resides in Ryutaro."
"So, when will you tell him?" asked Kazuki.
"I won't, but Yaminekoryu will tell him when he's ready," replied Ryuki.
"This is some heavy shit," said War-Rock.
"You could say that again, War-Rock," Kazuki agreed.
"Now then, let's continue. Confrontation, Defense and Stealth," Ryuki recited, "These are the three disciplines of the Hasuma School of Combat Arts. It's much like the Heart, Body and Technique Discipline of the GekiJyuKen Beast Arts School. Both are trinities, and both are balanced. Tell me, Kazuki, why is a triangle always balanced?"
"Because their sides are the same?" asked Kazuki.
"Yes, and a triangle will always land on its base. A good foundation is always necessary for any martial arts practice. You need to know the basics. I'm teaching my children the basics of all three disciplines and once I see which ones they excel at then I will focus on them more with the advanced techniques. Kazuki, while you have a firm grasp in martial arts you are still a beginner of my school and GekiJyuKen."
"You have a point," Kazuki admitted. "I mean, Nee-san and Gou-san taught me some techniques, but most of what I know feels kind of stitched and patched."
"Mastership takes years, decades even. I'm a master of the art and head of the clan because I earned it but it took hard work," said Ryuki. "But there is still time to learn and you have the time as well. What you need is motivation and we both have it in spades."
"What kind of motivation?" War-Rock inquired.
Ryuki smiled, "Family." He looked to Ryutaro and Ryuko who were sparring. Actually, it looked more like they were playing. "Family is the greatest treasure and must be protected. Originally, I didn't want to fight because I didn't want to hurt anyone, but I soon realized that I needed to fight to protect those precious to me. I wanted to be a hero because of that and even if I am semi-retired I am still a hero to my children. Can't disappoint them, can I?"
Kazuki smiled back, "No, you can't."
"So, let's begin," Ryuki began as he got into a stance. "Ryuta-kun, Ryuko-chan, have a seat and watch!"
The children sat on the sides before Kazuki and Ryuki began, already blocking each other's attacks and dancing around each other with their speed. As Ryuki was blocking the teenager's attacks, he could see wisps of gold energy leaking out of Kazuki as his efforts intensified.
'I was right,' Ryuki realized.
Kazuki jumped and executed a jump kick, making Ryuki duck as he twisted his body and swung his leg down, making the pyrokinetic roll to the side. Ryuki went on the offensive and swung at Kazuki with claw swipes as the boy dodged. As this continued, Ryuki noticed Kazuki's eyes were now slit like a reptiles.
'That's strange… Could it be his power changing him like this?' Ryuki asked himself.
They both made contact with a punch that sent them backward. They breathed as they now stopped. Applauds were heard from the dojo's entrance and all eyes turned towards it to see Katsura Ryuji standing there. He had aged a bit, now in his mid-twenties but still dressed in his standard bomber jacket over a black t-shirt and blue jeans.
"Now that was impressive," he smirked.
"Ryuji?" Kazuki blinked.
"Uncle Ryuji!" Ryutaro and Ryuko cheered.
The twins ran over and hugged his legs. Ryuji smiled, patting his niece and nephew on their heads.
"Glad you could make it," Ryuki smiled.
"You called him," Kazuki realized.
"He had to," Ryuji countered.
"It's about you."
Kazuki pointed to himself, "Me?"
"Haven't you noticed a change in your Ki signature?"
"I was too busy fighting to notice," he denied. "Is something wrong with me?"
"Well, not exactly," he trailed off, "But it could become a problem if we detected it too late."
"And what exactly is "it"?" Kazuki inquired.
"Genki (Mythical Ki)."
"Genki?" War-Rock echoed from inside the Wave Scanner."What the hell is that?"
Ryuji didn't tell them. He instead showed them as golden Ki flared off his body like fire. "This is Genki," he said.
"WHOA!" Kazuki and War-Rock exclaimed.
"GekiJyuKen has Geki, RinJyuKen has Rankin. And GenJyuKen has this, Genki," Ryuji listed.
"Oh, that's right," Kazuki realized, remembering how Asakura and Gou fought. "So what does this have to do with me?"
"I sensed it coming from you," Ryuki said.
An outside view of the Hasuma complex was seen before a shout of "WHAAAAAAAAT?" broke the silence.
Ryuko and Ryutaro jumped.
Ryuji grunted as he cleaned out his ear with a pinky, "Could you scream any louder, gaki?"
"Bu-bu-but..." Kazuki sputtered."How?-! When?-! WHY?-!"
"A dragon is a mythical creature, so I think it was in you this whole time," Ryuji said. "Maybe earlier exposure to me awakened it."
"If that was the case then I would've noticed it a long time ago," Kazuki countered. "Contact with you may have been the catalyst, but there has to be some kind of trigger. Something that could activate it after all this time... Wait a second..." he paused before gasping, "The dream!"
"A dream?" Ryuji blinked."Lemme guess, you got attacked by some kind of beast."
"Yeah, first Seiryuu then some weird lizard thing that was covered in shadow. All I could make out of it was that it had a lot of teeth and that it was real hungry."
"That's the animal spirit that represents your Genki."
Kazuki collapsed onto his knees, looking down, "Why didn't I see it sooner...?""
Ryuji shrugged, "Messages like that are always vague, but you shouldn't worry. We're here to help."
Kazuki took a deep breath and stood up,"OK, so what do we do now?"
"What do you think?" the Kamen Rider grinned.
"More training, right?"
Ryuji's grin widened.
The Sands of Time...
Ryuji kicked Kazuki out of the DynoLiner and onto the sand.
"This should be good," he nodded
Kazuki pulled his head out of the sand as he spat. "Ptoo, ptoo! That was uncalled for!"
"You accepted the training, meaning accepting whatever treatment I'm gonna give you," he retorted. "I ain't Ryuki so I'm not gonna be wearing kid gloves. If you wanna master your Genki, the training has to be harsh so that your body can handle it!"
Ryuji leapt out of the DynoLiner and landed before Kazuki. "Now, run for your life, gaki!"
"Oh, fuckberries!" Kazuki gaped.
Kotonoha heard the door open as she saw Kazuki enter the living room.
"Kazuki-kun?" she blinked.
Kazuki collapses on the floor.
"Kazuki-kun!" she panicked as she rushed to his side.
"He's asleep," Redder observed.
"What happened?" Kotonoha demanded.
"Oh, Ryuji just trained him close to death," War-Rock answered, "That guy worked his ass off."
Kotonoha frowned. She then started to drag Kazuki over to the bed. With some effort she managed to toss him onto the bed and climb on, stroking his face.
"You rest now, OK?" she cooed.
"...Munya..." Kazuki mumbled cutely.
Ryuji and Ryuki were in the latter's study. Ryuji was drinking beer while Ryuki was having tea
"I'm amazed he lasted as long as he did," Ryuji grinned widely.
"Ryuji, your standards are inhumane," his twin frowned.
"Hey, to fight monsters you gotta train like one," he reasoned."It's how I always win."
"Don't kill him."
"I won't. I hate to see Koto-chan cry." He then thought back to their training…
Ryuji was on the Machine DynoBreaker as Kazuki ran while the biker was shooting at him.
"Feeling like quitting now?" he called.
Kazuki met a cliff and turned to face him. He grinned, "If I quit now, my kids won't be able to see how cool I can be!"
"Now this is a good setting," Ryuji sighed. "Feeling chilly?"
He and Kazuki were now training in the former's Eternal Frost Realm technique. This was Ryuji's Reality Marble and his most powerful ability to date.
Covered in snow, Kazuki shivered as he roared, "WHAT DO YOU THINK?-!"
Ryuji rolled his eyes and reached into the snow to pull out a spear made of ice. "Heads up!" Multiple ice spears manifested around him and he tossed his spear, the others following.
"Dammit!" Kazuki growled as he starts running and his entire body turns into lightning as he zips through the air, even melting the ice on him away.
Ryuji checks his watch and muttered, "10 minutes and counting."
Kazuki starts zipping all over the area, hitting Ryuji from all angles. Ryuji snaps his fingers and ice statues shaped like Kotonoha as an archer rose up and fired at stopped as he fired lightning forth, shattering the arrows.
"Jigoku Tsume!" he roared as Kazuki was slashed. "Focus, gaki."
"Right!" He ignited his lightning body again and took to the sky, flying into the clouds before lightning starts rained down on Ryuji
Ryuji creates a barrier of ice around him as he retaliated with a blizzard. "7 minutes left, gaki," he notified.
"OK!" Kazuki descended down and into the ground, popping up inside the barrier and puts his hands to Ryuji's chest. "CLEAR!"
Ryuji grunts and then grins, "My turn!" Ice started to creep up Kazuki's arm when he touched Ryuji.
"Yeow!" he cried. "Cold! COLD!" He growled as he concentrated, charging up more electricity to build up heat.
"Don't bother. It won't melt," Ryuji snorted.
"This is MY world. If I will for ice to never melt it will never melt. If I will for the blizzard to never stop, then so be it. This is what it means to fight on the enemy's turf." Wolves of ice appeared around Ryuji. "Go," he ordered. The wolves lunged at Kazuki.
"Where's Gou-san when you need him...?" Kazuki sighed before he charges ahead with a "RAAAAAHH!"
Ryuji started to strain. Maintaining a Reality Marble requires a lot of energy and concentration since you're pretty much trying to rewrite the rules of the world.
"Genki Hou (Mythical Ki Cannon!)" he called out as he fired a blast of Genki at Kazuki which exploded and sent the young man flying.
"In order to access it you must concentrate fully onto one single thought that brings you despair," Ryuji said as he and Kazuki stood across a fire. "My one despair is that I will never be human. What is yours?"
Kazuki stared into the flames as he concentrated, "My despair... I can't... I can't share my life with my mother, like other kids can..."
Ryuji nodded, "Now focus on that thought, bring it out, harness it!"
"His fests clenched and teeth gritted as the feeling grew, as well as the sorrow and anger. "Kaa-chan... Kaa-chan...! KAA-CHAAAAAN!-!" he roared as Genki flared out of his body. During this, some of the aura covered his body and began to form blue scales that covered his body. After that, clawed gauntlets snapped onto his forearms and for his feet as his toes grew claws. His chest was covered in armor that had a dragon's head on the front and armored flaps hung from his waist. A long, prehensile tail grew from his tail bone and was tipped with a drill-shaped bone. His shoulders were also covered in dragon-headed pauldrons. Blue, electrical wings sprouted from his back as they flared wildly. Finally, a blue Spartan helmet protected his head as his eyes glowed red and his teeth turned into sharp fangs. The crest of the helmet sported a drill-shaped horn and electric "hair" flared out wildly.
Ryuji sees this and smirks, "Now...overcome that despair and conquer key is to control the despair, not to let it control you and overwhelm you."
"Kaa-chan is..." Kazuki growled in a warped tone, "Kaa-chan is...happy... Happy that I'm alive... Happy that I've made friends... She's happy for me..." his fists tighten, "So then... I'll be happy for her!"The Genki flames start to calm down and the armor shatters, allowing Kazuki to fall on his knees as he gasped for air.
"Open your eyes. Do you feel that, Kazuki?" Ryuji asked.
He stared at his hand as it flared up with a gold aura, "My...Genki..."
"Let me warn you that this power can corrupt you. You have to be stronger than the power to control it and not let it control you. Don't make the same mistake I did and look for a shortcut. You wouldn't want to put your Kotonoha through that, believe me."
"Of course not," Kazuki smirked, "I look for solutions, not shortcuts."
"Once you have trained after me you will become a practitioner of the GenJyuSeiryu-Ken." He hand Kazuki a scroll, "Here, a scroll that details the GenJyu Dragon-Ken."
He opened the scroll and skims through it, "It's a general blueprint of all dragon-based techniques. Amazing..."
"These are the techniques of Long, the Infernal Dragon. I suggest you only practice the hand-to-hand components. I have faith in you but these advanced techniques can corrupt you. You can utilize them to perfect your GenJyuKen but that is all. Come to me when you wish to learn advanced Gengi."
"OK, Ryu-sempai!" Kazuki nodded.
"Now, since you use Genki and GenJyuKen you can be considered a monster of the martial arts world. Monsters like us can lose control easily. Don't become a monster, Kazuki."
"How was training?" Kotonoha asked.
"It was...enlightening," he summarized as they lay in bed together.
"I heard you were sent to train under other me told me he could be harsh but also kind. We traded stories and she admitted that she envied me because I had a childhood friend like you." RD-Kotonoha and KRD-Kotonoha had compared notes earlier while the boys were off training.
"The training was pretty crazy to be honest," he admitted."But everything we did had a lesson to it."
"Oh, do tell," she requested before she let out a gasp
"What's wrong?" he panicked.
"I felt a kick."
He held her, "Did it hurt?"
"No, it just surprised me," she smiled. "Our children are going to be strong, I can tell."
"You're strong too, Koto-chan," Kazuki said.
"Only because you taught me how."
He led her close, "Well, we've helped each other. That's what friends do. And now we're even more than that."
Kotonoha kisses him, "We will be married soon. The wedding plans are already underway."
He slumped, "Wow, I was so busy training I forgot..."
Kotonoha stroked is cheek and cooed, "Sleep, my Ryu no Ouji (Prince of Dragons)."
"OK, goodnight, Koto..." he yawned before he was out like a light."Zzzz..."
Kazuki was back in his mind, sitting on the flat surface of a stone mound as Seiryuu was coiled around him.
"So, it is done," Seiryuu said.
"Yeah, I managed to overcome the despair," Kazuki nodded. "Now I just have to learn the techniques and maintain the Genki."
"Well, you already know some of the techniques," Seiryuu corrected. "All you have to do is create new ones. I not to sound pushy, but itis best you master our Genki soon."
Kazuki blinked, "What makes you say that?"
The Saint Beast's eyes narrowed, "Let's just say I feel you're going to need the power soon."
Bushido: And after decades of solitude, a new chapter emerges from the depths of my USB. I decided to change the theme for this chapter because the original content I previously had didn't flow too well, so I changed the theme completely. Hopefully, you guys might enjoy this.
