For a time it seemed her Genjutsu went off without a hitch. A small feeling of pride welled in her chest seeing something like that work for the first time. That feeling, however, was dispelled along with her Genjutsu as she noticed a flush of Enkou's chakra. She knew the technique was unlikely to last any decent amount of time but it would've been nice if it had lasted just a bit longer. A sudden rush of action came next as the stone sword in his hands was slammed into the ground. A small flinch came along with the movement and rightfully so as she felt the Genin's chakra flare again. Intent told her attack, the way it was molded told her Doton, and she matched his handseals with three of her own.

Stones jettisoned forth from shattered ground as Enkou disappeared below it, leaving Kioko to deal with the projectiles. Her hair grew rapidly, hardening and wrapping around her. Rocks met with metallic-mimicked locks before cracking and clattering to the ground in front of her. Thankfully her Sensory let her keep tabs on the boy beneath the surface but that was about the extent of what she could do at the moment. She didn't possess many techniques that would break through the shield of earth he had made for himself by disappearing from sight. She focused on his chakra, reaching out to touch it, keeping his location firmly in her mind. I'll just ready myself for his next attack. Rushing forward against an enemy I can't touch is meaningless. Besides, in a real fight that would mean I was leaving my ally alone. That's not what Enkou has taught me.

So, she didn’t move much from the looks of it… So she has defensive skills in her arsenal Enkou thought, not really being able to see but because of his jutsu being afford a different sort of vision a magnetic force one. He brought a hand up to his head and tapped on his chin with the pointer finger I wonder if she will be able to reach me down here his head tilted looking upward towards the surface. What to do in this situation, he realized that he lacked anything that he could do from down here. Which meant that he would have to head topside to continue. But not before! he brought his hands together into a string of handseals and unleashed his jutsu. On the surface, large stone would raise up to Kioko’s right and left about foot away on each side. While this occurred Enkou surged upward directly towards Kioko, his left hand moving to his right forearm tapping the seal there and releasing something into the waiting left hand. His intent clear to him, as he burst forward from the ground. His left arm raising above him in a hell to heaven slash with a simple Katana.

For a moment things were calm. Enkou had stopped and while she couldn't see him she could feel that his attention was on her. She held her footing to the best of her ability, inching backward despite herself when suddenly she felt the sensation of shifting chakra inside of him. It was Doton again but it didn't feel like the intent was an attack. She waited then, still encased in her cocoon of hardened hair as walls of stone shook free from their soil confines on either side of her. The signature she had been following underground was then on the move, rushing toward her. She let out a small "eek!" as he burst from the ground but as he did she too burst.

Flower petals erupted in her place, raining down all around the Genin as he committed himself to his slash. The sword with which he swung met with only air as the real Kioko darted backward through the gap in the walls. The remnants of her Needle Jizo fell behind her, a trail of hair giving away her path as she rushed to safety. Her free hand touched the sides of stone as she ran through, leaving behind ink in their wake that soon faded from view. It was another simple trick and one that would likely end faster than her previous Genjutsu but there wasn't an awful lot she could do. Her clan's techniques were useless unless Enkou was restrained and she couldn't handle his speed in order to attempt to fight in close quarters. The only truly offensive technique she knew seemed too dangerous for a spar, leaving the Yamanaka with little options on how to actually win. Truthfully, that was the last thing on her mind however. This wasn't a matter of winning but a matter of finding the fight in her.

Tch, another genjutsu was what went through his mind as he sliced through a shower of petals. Unless you were never inside of this box, then one in three chance that is where you decided to go a smile on his lips, as he let go of the sword in his hand sending it haphazardly forward. He had soared up and out of the stone walls, his right foot briefly pushing the stone at the top of the gap opening. He descended down pushing off the left stone block. As he jumped he formed a singular hand seal, shattering away the genjutsu illusion. His hands then flowed through a second set of hand seals. As he landed he brought up his left hand and breathed fire into it, forming up into a sphere before being tossed onto the ground. The flame taking the shape of a wolf that stood there between Enkou and Kioko, as he slowly turned to look in her direction.

The genjutsu is, well about as annoying as I figured it would be. Her though, she has not attempted to attack me… She must have no offensive jutsus, so being put into a situation like this. Where she has to take to the offensive against someone, is not something she’s ever experienced I’d imagine. Any combat she’s probably seen prior to this, she’s been with someone else…
To Enkou, it just seemed so foreign. A completely passive and defensive skill set. But not everyone liked to swing around swords and wade into the fight like he did. He flicked a hand forward, the wolf taking off running towards Kioko.

So what do you do, when your attacker cannot be locked into a genjutsu?

Quickly, far quicker than she had hoped, Enkou reacted to her trick. Releasing his sword during the swing, he sent the weapon scattering her direction. It was thrown with less accuracy than she knew Enkou was capable of and for that she was quite thankful. Dropping to her side she allowed the weapon to fly over her as she thumped to the ground. Enkou's signature continued to move upward from the ground and as she hit the ground he hit the top of top of the stone gap. She was too slow to capitalize on that first step but the second failed to pass her by.

Descending down, Enkou would attempt to push off the stone only to find his feet stuck fast to it. Lines of ink, formula formed from the Yamanaka's chakra, erupted along the rock's surface. As she lifted herself from the ground and moved away to make that distance she so desperately needed, she felt a sudden eruption of chakra from within her opponent.

Doton and Katon?! She thought anxiously. She felt much more outclassed than before, having no elements of her own. Enkou was stronger, faster, and also more gifted than herself, this was becoming rapidly apparent. The flames leapt from Enkou's mouth to his palm, a crackling sphere of fire that sparked to life a beast. Roaring forward from his palm, a wolf composed of those flames turned it's attention upon the Yamanaka. Her knees weakened as her mind ran through what techniques she possessed. None of her usual Genjutsu would work on it, she had no Fuuinjutsu prepared for such a thing, and her small repertoire of Taijutsu would prove foolish. That left only one option, though she still felt it was too much for a simple spar. As the intent of Enkou's chakra struck her then she nearly grimaced knowing there was no more options for her in the face of the fiery beast.

The book in her hand slammed shut as she hopped backward, leaving a copy of herself in a sudden cloud of white smoke. As the beast moved forward, so did the clone of Kioko while behind the original stood in silence, her eyes suddenly downcast. The clone moved to meet the monster, it's fate decided from the moment it was born into this world.

[Used Techniques:
Clone Great Explosion (A-Rank, S-Rank Power)

Note: I Don't Want to be Alone: One of Kioko's biggest fears is being alone, and as such when she catches someone, she tends to hold on harder than she should. When using a technique that requires the opponent to meet a certain stat threshold to break, such as Chakra Hair Trap requiring Masterful Strength, the detainee must have a Major Advantage higher than the listed stat to break free. This SA applies to String Light Formation's listed Strength requirement to break, though not it's chakra requirement.

Enkou blinked in surprise as he was pinned to the ground. Glancing down as the wolf charged forward, there were a lot of formula written all over. Including some wrapped around his feet. Tch… A binding fuuinjutsu? he did not immediately recognize this fuuinjutsu, but if it was a binding one it could be broken in a few different ways. As the wolf charged forward towards a clone of Kioko, Enkou decided his easiest option was to probably just shatter the seal. By surging chakra through his legs and feet he pushed off against the stone. Struggling a bit before he pushed back again. The formula breaking as he flipped through the air. As his eyes looked forward towards the wolf, it had closed in on the Kioko clone and went to bite down on its leg What? Don’t tell me she charged that thing…

As the teeth sank in, the wolf erupted into an explosion of fire. Which triggered the clone to explode unleashing a massive explosion that tore apart the ground throwing rocks and stones in every direction. Enkou instinctively brought his arms up to help shield his eyes, while he tried to peak between his forearms to see what happened. Shadow clone explosion? Jeez that was bloody massive, stronger then my own version of that… So where did she go then if that was not her? as he thought that he brought a hand down to his left forearm and sent a small puff of chakra into the seal. Popping free a second Katana into his right hand, he held it in front of him and watched. Waiting to see what would emerge through the smoke of the explosion, though he knew already that there would be a crater left behind.

I wonder, just how much longer can you keep this up Kioko?

The two constructs of chakra met one another. Kioko was aware of what would come next, that terrible sight of herself self-destructing. The would erupted first but it's blast paled in comparison to hers. Absorbed entirely in her explosion, the surrounding area scorched and ruined, she felt a wave of nausea roll over her. It was one of her very few offensive techniques but it was not one she used lightly. As smoke, dirt, and debris filled the air between herself and Enkou she flipped her book open once more. Her previous sealing technique was shook free with a burst of chakra but, for now at least, she was hidden from Enkou's view. She could still "see" his location, a small upper hand in her favor.

The smoke between them began to change, dragging itself downward and condensing into images of the Yamanaka. The area between them was suddenly filled with tens of the girl, their eyes trained on Enkou's location. From the ground around him, the stone walls near him, and the trees that littered the area more and more of the Yamanaka pulled themselves outward. With a sudden, drastic change of pace the multitude of Kioko clones rushed toward Enkou with the intent to swarm and drag him down.

Enkou’s eyes darted left and right as multiple Kioko’s emerged from the smoke. And then began to emerge from the ground near him seemingly climbing up and out. While still other Kioko’s pulled themselves free from tree trunks and others still from the remains of the rock. Okay then… This, was unexpected he flexed his fingers wrapped around his katana’s hilt. By his quick eyeball count, there was something like fifty Kioko’s surrounding him. So, how to deal with this turn of events before he could really form a plan, the clones converged toward him. As the nearest clone rushed him, he swung his blade. The katana biting into their waist and slicing through leaving the two halves falling to the ground. Enkou pivoted on his right foot and spun through his first attack bringing the blade in a wide arc around him cleaving two more clones in half. As he spotted his spin, he lunged toward a clone. Ducking under a fist, a hell to heaven slash met the clone that attempted the punch. Cleaving it from hip to opposite shoulder. He brought the blade down on the clone right behind it, cleaving it too from shoulder to hip. Ducking under a punch and bringing his blade up to block a kick, Enkou spun again slicing the head off of a clone.

This is not going to last… I won’t be able to fight off this number… Not like this at least, not in the middle of them all… his right eyebrow twitched. Chakra flared down his sword, the sword becoming cloaked in a faint red glow that seemed a bit less refined then it should. As the blade itself ignited, Enkou spun around and swung his blade in the direction opposite of the explosion’s crater. As the blade swung, the flames leapt forth. Roaring forth in a wide arc, the fire wave worked well to clear a path which Enkou followed. Using the center most point of the flame arc so that he would be the least likely to have to deal with any of the clones.

Least now I won’t be in the middle of them all…

To be expected of smoke meeting steel and flame, the doppelgangers fell quickly and in droves. Enkou's sword rent swathes through the throng of bodies. Kioko watched in a minor amount of displeasure, seeing how easy it was for him to cut down the copies of herself. Clones or not they held her visage and without hesitation her fellow Genin tore through them without a second thought. In a final display of his Katon prowess an arcing jet of fire burned the clones that stood in his way. For a moment it seemed that he had done what he sought to do, break free of their numbers and clear a path for himself. That moment was short before being splintered by the sound of falling feet. Where each one had once stood, two took their place. The tale of the hydra who grew two heads for every one cut off played in Kioko's mind, a fitting analogy for the scene in front of her.

Hands, desperate and unafraid, reached out toward her sparring partner. The sheer amount of them growing hopefully overwhelming as Smoke and Haze attempted to break through the skill gap, the ability gap, the sheer betterness that Enkou held over her. Smother the flames of his ability so that he burned as dimly as she did. That was the goal she strove for.

It wasn't about winning or being better. It was about being enough. If she couldn't rise to his level, than the only option was to bring him down to hers. Among the Smoke and Haze, feathers filled the air, black and white alike, as crows began to sweep through the clones of Kioko. Akin to the doppelgangers before, these too held the ability to continuously multiply, though they need not to be destroyed to do so. An overwhelming number of bodies closed in and around Enkou, each with the ability to regrow, reform from their destruction. Phoenixes that rose from the ashes, hydras that reformed twofold what they lost.

Could Enkou be the one man able to defeat the odds like all those stories she had read before?

And she thinks she needs help…. was the only thought that went through his mind as he skidded to a stop. Lower halves of bodies raising up in front of him and growing an upper half So, these are pretty much a more advanced version of the standard clone eh? Cleave them and they just… come back as two… he spun the sword in his hand 180 degrees and dropped the tip into the ground. Spinning himself 360 degrees, a second after finishing his circle, a ring of fire erupted around Enkou. Since these things can duplicate from being cut in half… How would they react to fire? he looked down at the ring of fire around him, his sword resting tip in the ground just in front of him but not part of the ring of flames. Hmm, that might work… bringing his hands together he formed some short hand seals then thrust his hands forward.

Wind howled to life from his palms, flying forth from his palms were two swirling masses of wind. The formed into two miniature tornados spinning at about the height of the surrounding trees. As they spun around they began to suck up some flames from Enkou’s ring, causing each tornado to become a swirling mass of fire going haphazardly through the clones.

Enkou just tilted his head.
Is this overboard for a spar? I mean Ran decided to send me face first into the water during ours… And Saya… Well Saya was rough to deal with but I never got to experience the full brunt of her power because of Maia’s interruption
He tilted his head the other way, his hand pulling the sword free and his eyes watching for clones that might actually have been able to push into the ring.
Is this how it feels to be on their end of the fight? Is this how Ran and Saya felt while facing me? Or while facing their very first student in a spar?

Food for thought… Food for thought.

(OoC: "Among the Smoke and Haze, feathers filled the air, black and white alike, as crows began to sweep through the clones of Kioko." White feathers falling is the trigger for Temple of Nirvana which Enkou did not react to.)

A horde of bodies swarmed, crows and kunoichi racing to restrain their opponent. A welling inside of Enkou sent the actual Kioko stumbling back a step or two. He has Fuuton as well? Enkou...how far do I have to go to be like you? She thought as wind and flames shunted off her clone legion. It was only luck that she had managed to sneak another Genjutsu passed her opponent, his attention dragged away by the mass of multiples that had once stood between them. Eden-like bliss would roll over Enkou then and soon, nearly moments, after he would slump to the ground in a peaceful sleep. She watched and waited for a moment, making doubly sure that it was the real Enkou. The seconds dragged on before she discerned that it was, in fact, her actual opponent whom she was staring at.

Taking a cautious step forward she felt his chakra settle, whatever fiery sword-style he had been using grew dormant as he slumbered soundly. She made the rest of the walk with a small growing confidence coming with each step. As she stood over his sleeping form a glow that she had not ever felt before touched her cheeks. "I can't believe I won. I have to tell Inahara!" She squealed with an unabashed glee in her voice. Crouching down next to Enkou she pushed his cheek with her finger, giggling, before placing a hand on his shoulder. A small rush of chakra, just enough to agitate Enkou's, lept into her new friend. As he woke he would see a crouching Kioko smiling at him unapologetically wide.

"It's time to wake up. I can never thank you enough for today but that doesn't mean I won't try. Thank you, so very much." She took a few, awkward steps back before waiting for what Enkou had to say back.

Enkou blinked What…the… he felt weird, weird in a way that he shouldn’t be feeling. He was in the middle of a swarm of clones and he felt… happy? Contented? Ah… God damn, she was in that swarm somewhere… the flames began to flicker out around him. Realization was coming to him, When? How? God damn it… I really hate Gen- Enkou collapsed sideways, luckily avoiding the sword in front of him. The flames of the ring having flickered out prior to his fall even starting. The wind and flames firestorm dying down as Enkou lay there, asleep.


A few moments later, Enkou’s chakra was corrected by Kioko. Snapping him back to being awake which he immediately sat up, realizing the last thing that he remembered was being in the middle of a clone swarm he started reaching for the seals on his forearms. His eyes darted around, and landed on the smiling face of Kioko standing by him. There was only one of her, not the few dozen he had been dealing with prior. He relaxed his arms, letting the tension fall from them. He looked back to Kioko, ”You need to give yourself more credit” he commented folding his legs together looking up at her.

”Before we sparred… And during the start of it. You gave off a nervous aura and impression, like you weren’t sure of yourself. Which made sense with how you were when we spoke”
He looked at her while he spoke, wondering how she’d react to what he was about to say.
”And frankly the first few exchanges, I was going to hold back. Hell I had considered not even using my swords after seeing your stance. But I ramped it up as we went, because I realized. You can handle yourself, you can handle playing keep-away from an opponent. At least an opponent that is not very familiar with genjutsu like myself. Have faith in yourself, you have a good handle on your place in a team and on a mission”
He smiled. Despite losing, he had hoped that he had to push her to actually get the win. At the very least, it was a good stretch for him and a good flex of what he could do. It also made him realize, he still had a lot of room to grow.

Seeing Enkou's initial reaction produced another giggling fit from the girl. He reminded her of a puppy that you shook free from a dream, it's feet kicking against phantasmal ground. He looked around, disoriented but unharmed until his eyes found purchase on her. She tilted her head happily, smile touching her eyes as he seemed to grasp what had happened. Her face dropped when he first spoke, confusion replacing that initial glee. "Give myself credit for what?" She asked, voice small and unsure. He went on, explaining something she knew far too well. Her aura was always an anxious one, a shivering one, a scared and scattered one. Being reminded only made her expression sink further, confusion now being replaced with solemn understanding. "I know that, I know." She spoke between him, voice sliding under his nearly inaudible.

The drastic descent of her emotions stymied before stabilizing as Enkou continued. She had assumed he was holding back, who wouldn't? She understood that going all out against someone like her by someone like him would have easily ended up with her being the one on the ground, and not just from some Genjutsu. His first compliment hit her hard, her hands clasping tighter around the book she still held. "You really think I can?" She asked, caution tinting her voice. His compliment came with a small addendum, one that she had thought was the case but not wanted to give too much merit. His inexperience with Genjutsu was one that had surely been the deciding factor in their spar. Despite her tactics if Enkou had only known what was coming than she would've failed. It was a bittersweet aftertaste to her first spar.

"I don't think I did anything all that special though. As you said yourself, your unfamiliarity with Genjutsu is the reason I did well today. If we were to spar again I am quite positive the outcome would be reversed. I could not hope to match you, physically or elementally. In fact, that single explosion technique makes up almost the entirety of my offensive capabilities. It is not something I think is suitable to a spar. Tricks are all I have."

Interesting, so she truly lacked finishing power herself. And would be completely reliant on others to do the finishing blow for her. A problem should she ever get separated from her teammates. He lifted a hand, pointing up a single finger. ”From our conversation before the spar, I would say you did exactly what you were supposed to do” he made a gesture with his hand pointing to the area behind Kioko the site of their spar. ”You expressed that your preferred roll would be support. You even told me you have some skill with Ijutsu. I think you performed that perfectly” he smiled pausing for a moment. Bringing his hand backed he held it up looking like a fist with the back of his hand facing towards Kioko, before he continued. ”You identified that your opponent was at a higher skill level then you” he stuck his pointer finger up, ”Knowing that, you immediately decided that going toe-to-toe with me was not in your favor” his middle finger sprang up, ”You used your skill set to prod for weaknesses in your opponent, pinpointing my lack of experience against genjutsu” up popped his ring finger, ”Using that knowledge, you focused your efforts into that to keep me away from reaching you” out sprang his pinky, ”And finally, you caught me in a genjutsu strong enough to completely subdue me” his thumb popped out.

The smile on his face a bit wider now as he held his hand out for a moment longer, before lowering it into his lap. ”If this was out in the field, in a non-sparring situation. You’d have free reign to do whatever you needed right now. Pull back to a better position, regroup with your teammates, or heal them if they needed tending to. Chances that I would have been able to stop that would have been extremely low” he leaned back, propping himself up on his hands as he looked up at Kioko.

”So stop being so hard on yourself. From where I… Well, sit. You did a pretty good job at being a support”

Floodgates shuddered, excited waters threatening to burst the dams of Kioko's cheeks as lips peeled back ever so slightly. Pearl white teeth poked out under peach-touched skin as the smile grew and grew. Each new finger came with it new praise and as the thumb came up it was too much for the Yamanaka. She blushed terribly before diving her face into her palms and looking away from Enkou. "You can't really mean that. This was my first spar since I graduated to Genin. I so very appreciate it, however, that you think so. It gives me hope, hope." A quick movement, her hand leaving her face, a pinch on her thigh and then hand returned to hiding her.

Was she being hard on herself? The village was at war after all. She wasn't sure if it was a matter of expecting too much or having too much expected of her. She knew that soon, all too soon, she would likely be forced to the field. With little experience, in fact this being the extent of it, and no team of which to call her own, that scared the girl. The idea of it shook her to the core, sent her running into books where, if even for just a short time, she could be someone else.

"If ever we fight alongside one another, I hope I support you as well as you believe me capable of."

”You are being waaaay to hard on yourself Kioko”
It was, a blunt and to the point statement. She did pretty well in deal with his aggression, there were only a few things he could see to be of a benefit to her. One being a bit more of an offensive jutsu set, or at least pseudo offensive jutsus. They did not need to defeat or kill, disable was enough or even slow. He pointed with a finger back towards where he had created his Doton corridor. ”I think if you could figure out how to manipulate Doton… You may very well be able to completely stop a person in their tracks. Or put enough obstacles between you and your opponent to allow you to escape or regroup with teammates or heal them or whatever it is you need to do” he then gestured back to her. Taking his finger from pointing to her and pointing to his own head before continuing, ”Then again, that may not be necessary. You have experience with fuuinjutsu, you could just use that to create an array of barrier seals. Then tend to your allies within the safety of your own barriers.”

She raised an eyebrow at Enkou, head tilting like a puppy who had heard an unfamiliar noise. "I can not manipulate Doton. The litmus paper test confirmed that I have no elements. It is a nice dream, however, to think of what one could do if able. I dream of it often." She did think of what it would be like to move stone, breath fire, control the wind and waves, or command lightning itself with her fingertips. Those things were not for Kioko, however. She had no affinity for the elements, no latent ability that she simply had glossed over or anything of that sort. She was who she was with the abilities that she had, nothing more and thankfully nothing less. Thinking of these things did turn her attention back to Enkou and the spar they had just concluded.

"You are quite lucky, Enkou. Three elements is very rare. How long have you known that you could control them?"

He tilted his head at the question and statement. Rare to have three elements? it seemed, like a foreign concept to him. He found it more intriguing and odd that she had none. He just, always presumed that a shinobi had an elemental lean in their chakra. It… It just made no sense in his mind how someone could be born with none, or even develop none during their time in the academy or just in early shinobi life. The question posed to him though, that confused him just as much as Kioko’s lack of element. How did he learn to control the elements that he had… He knew he had an affinity for Katon, and chalked it up to being around a forge a lot growing up. Presuming that his environment growing up caused that. The Doton and Fuuton though… Those were, different. A brief memory flashed through his mind, he sort of remembered how he came to have those two additional elements. Not that he would disclose the true reason to Kioko.

”I think I was born with Katon nature, or at the very least my childhood helped form it. I spent a lot of time helping out my old man around his forge” when it came to the other two, he had an idea of how to explain them away. ”Doton and Fuuton, well those came about during some training. I may have always had access to all three but my childhood made Katon more prominent so it rose to the surface first. While the other two rose up as I started to explore other options outside of Katon within the realm of ninjutsu” he smiled.

”Gotta say, part of me wishes Doton had rose to the surface first. In the time since I awoke that elemental nature, I’ve realized how versatile it is. The very ground becomes your tool”
He chuckled at his own statement.

"I am so very envious." She said with a pained smile on her lips. To talk so easily about something so out of her reach, she wondered if Enkou was aware of how lucky he was? To someone like her even one element was a dream but in front of her sat someone who had three and treated them as though they simply were facts of life. "I know you will go far as a shinobi, Enkou. Things for you are so simple, I'm sure you don't need me to assure you." Her pointer finger touched lightly against the dirt, drawing smooth lines and curving shapes into the dirt. "Whether it was Doton or Katon, you have them both. In fact, you have more than just those don't you? You use Fuuton as well. Those were not simply a matter of exploration in Ninjutsu. You were born with them. The exact same way I was born without them, Enkou. If I am too hard on myself in your eyes, you are too lucky to understand my plight in mine." She spoke softly, words barely carrying on the wind that blew softly between them. Her blush was replaced with sadness that tinted her eyes as she looked up at the Genin in front of her.

"If I have overstepped myself I apologize for that was not my intention you see. I simply know where I stand, as an individual and by comparison among other Genin. This was a learning experience, one I will surely treasure, but at the end of the day it was luck. The future will favor shinobi such as yourself, gifted, lucky. We were born different, Enkou."

Enkou blinked, he never looked at it like that. He never considered himself to be lucky, gifted perhaps considering the nature in which he found his Doton and Fuuton elemental chakras. But did that truly mean he was a gifted shinobi? And did that truly mean that she, when not having been born this way, was equally as ungifted? She seemed to think that because he had all these things she did not, that she would be an inferior shinobi. Enkou just shook his head at her.

”I completely disagree”
He pushed himself up and to his feet to stand in front of Kioko. ”You think I am some gifted shinobi, if I am. Why did I lose? If I am supposed to be gifted, I should have never gotten caught up in your genjutsu. But I did, you beat me” he wondered, if anything he said or was going to say would sink in. But he continued anyway, ”Just because you and I are so different, does not mean that you could not become a great shinobi. Even greater of a shinobi then I could become. It is all about how you try to get better. Sure I was born with three elements, but that does not automatically make me better. I have to learn how to use those elements, I need to learn how to go about manipulating the different element chakras. If I do not go through the effort of learning, the same kind of effort you need to go through with your own skill set, then all my natural abilities and elements are useless”

He wasn’t sure if this would sink in and make sense to the girl in front of him, but he hoped it did.

"I figured that you would." She said under her voice at Enkou's voiced disagreement. Of course he wouldn't believe what she said so soon after a spar in which she won. That, however, was simply results oriented thinking. She beat him so thus she was as gifted as he was, but that simply wasn't the case. She felt worse than before, now listening to him attempt to justify his points. His view on being born special, elements, hard work, they were sweet ideas. That's all they were however, sweet in idea but bitter in reality. While she had won a spar where he had began holding back, where he had exerted no real effort, where there was nothing on the line, in a real battle it was apparent who would have won. Perhaps this is why she had avoided spars for so long? They lead people to the wrong idea, the wrong outcomes.

"I don't believe I communicated my point well enough, apologies. You speak of effort, Enkou, like you don't put forth some amount of your own. If you and I work just as hard as one another, you will outclass me. There is a ceiling to what we are capable of doing as shinobi you see. Your ceiling, it dwarfs mine in nearly every way possible. This spar, this was just one small example of what, and who, we are, Enkou. If one were to call on a shinobi, who do you think they would call for first, you or me?"

She leveled her eyes with him then, a solemn understanding shining in her irises. This was no belittling comment, no self-deprecation, this was only truth. The world was not kind or caring. People were not born equal. In the world of shinobi someone like Enkou, born with multiple elements and so much more, would outshine someone like Kioko. That was fine by the Yamanaka however.

A flower needs a sun in order to bloom.

He just sighed, almost sounded like nothing he would say would impact Kioko’s thoughts here. Though, as much as he did not like the idea. If someone was to pop up right now and need someone for a mission, knowing about both of them. They probably would choose him. Sure his sword skills could still use work, and he lacked a way to make fuinjutsu into a more offensive style of combat. He had opened the spar pulling his punches and planning to go easy on her because she seemed unsure of herself. Which, frankly he felt was almost something he could help her with. Mulling over, that plan really did fall apart rather quick into it. His lunge from underground was with his actual sword and not a stone cane-sword.

Letting out another sigh he turned, half facing away from Kioko. ”Sadly, you are probably right” he muttered. ”They would probably come to me first” he muttered as well, finishing his thought and answering the girl. He looked off to the edge of the clearing, ”I just do not like to see you being so negative and hard on yourself” he stared for a moment at something off in the distance, a randomly selected tree trunk really. ”It just seems wrong to me for some reason” he paused mulling over his thoughts more. ”Even if you are right about me being better then you, it does not mean you cannot become a good or even great shinobi. You can. Even if you never get the recognition you deserve because of people like me around you” he turned his head to look at her. ”It will be the people like me that will know, success came about because everyone did their part. And that includes the part you play on teams and in groups. Whatever that may end up being” part of him wondered if she would take any of this to heart, or if the next time he saw her she would be the same nervous mess.

He guessed only time would tell on that front at least. For now though, she seemed less like a nervous mess then she was when she had walked into the field a few minutes ago.

Smiling gently, the smallest upturn of her lips, Kioko shook her head. "It is not that sad. It is only as sad as you think it is. Her smile turned up a little more, "Knowing what one is capable of doing is the first step toward not being let down by what one is not capable of doing, doing." A small pinch on her thigh, "I don't mind it, really. There is a place for me and that's good enough." She meant it, too. Her words were said with the certainty of someone who had thought long and hard about the subject. She didn't find her words negative nor her viewpoint. She did find it strange that Enkou found them that way, however. Perhaps it was because he was special, that he thought everyone capable of the same as himself? What a wonderful way to look at the world, if not a little shortsighted.

She bounced once on her heels before standing up straight and arcing her back in a stretch. Her nerves felt a little shot from the spar. While neither had landed a physical blow on the other, her limbs felt weak. Enkou's display of his elements was beautiful if not terrifying. Her own, single offensive, technique had left her feeling drained among the Genjutsu she had used. Was this the way it always felt after a battle? It wasn't entirely unpleasant but she couldn't understand those who actively sought out this feeling.

"I look forward to what you do in the future." She said earnestly before taking a small, shuffling step back. "For now, however, I think I should be getting back to the store to work. If you find yourself in the Yamanaka district you should stop by for some flowers. The first are on me." She smiled again and put her head down, making sure the following steps landed solely on flat ground.

Enkou watched as Kioko left. And I’ll be interested in seeing if your right, or… If your all wrong he thought walking over to where his sword had landed from earlier. Bending down he picked it up, holding it in his right hand. Looking the blade over for damage and marks he pondered the original reason he was here for. Hmmm, how did she get that seal trap down anyway? he thought walking over to stand in front of the rock sections that his jutsu had lifted during their spar. His eyes looked over it, the blade still in his right hand. Did she have pre-made fuuinjutsu tags? he walked between what was left of the stone slabs and looked along both of them for any kind of paper she may have left behind. As he emerged from the opposite end, with nothing. No sign of any paper or even remnants of paper. He stopped and turned around looking, lifting his sword up and holding it horizontal in front of him. Bringing his left hand up to hold onto the blade, careful to not let the edge cut into him at all.

He looked from blade to the stone
”She never had time to write the formula the proper way…” he pondered aloud. He had heard about this, turning your own chakra into a fuinjutsu formula. Never trying it himself, but… Frankly it seemed the only way she could have gotten a fuinjutsu formula out in time to him. He looked back to the blade, Hmmm, that might very well be the way to go about taking fuinjutsu into a more offensive light he smiled. Sealing the blade away he turned and started to walk off, slipping out of the field and disappearing into the tree line to make it way out of the grounds and… most likely home.

I need a nap after that… And to think…
