Shion listened to Octavia's advice while watching her shots improve when her final shot of the round hit its mark Shion grinned. "Good work, You are really improving!
" he said remembering how just barley a week ago she could barely even hit the target. But as he turned to look at her it was clear something was wrong. Her skin had turned pale and Shion could tell even though she was trying to hide it she wasn't feeling good at all. "Heading back sounds like a good idea, I think you earned a bit of a break
" Shion said trying to play along and not show he noticed and badly trying to hide his concern for the girl. "You go on ahead, I'll clean up things here.
" He said with a grin letting her go take care of herself. After he was done cleaning up Shion would head back to the tavern to secure himself some grub.
Alm spent a little more time at the training field even getting the honor to have a sparing match with the Guard Captain, and almost bested the older man. But experience won the day and taught Alm a new trick along the way, so overall a fruitful little fight. After his morning bouts Alm had made his way back to the tavern and watched as one of the new recruits from the night before walked to the barn. He remembered her saying something about an "Old blood Clan" and Alm remembered his clan elders speaking about something or other to do with them. So Alm decided to go have a chat with the huntress. He gave a knock on the door alerting them to his presence before starting. "If I remember correctly your Old Blood Clan has a deep connection to animals as well, although I will say it is a slightly different approach. You bond with animals through blood right?
" Alm started while leaning against the door. "If the stories are true then you would gain some of the animals abilities, which would indeed be impressive.
" he continued. "But that is only possible for those with strong with the clan's blood. Now I wonder are you one such huntress? and if so what may I ask did you gain from your companions there? Is there a way to strengthen your bond to improve how much of their aspects you receive?
" He continued, asking more for his own benefit trying to unlock the secret for him to advance his own level of control to his own posers. He didn't proceed into the barn just yet, cautiously waiting to see the reaction from the three before making any move.
