The whole world filled with the sound of rain falling and weapons clashing. The fight would end when one of them was dead. That fact actually calmed her. "Can't we just stop this senseless fighting?"
The rain stopped, and her opponent answered silently. The world came to a standstill. In the next instant they each made their final move, smiling all the while. "An excellent fight. I thank you!" The end of the battle was colored by a spray of blood.
She keeps moving forward in order to hone her skills and surpass herself. Just as her thoughts went back to the previous fight, a gust of wind wrapped a flyer right onto her cherished sword. "Hmm, a tournament... This must be fate."
