    Bloodscream led Tally into the training center. Everyone had insisted that Bloodscream wouldn't always around to protect Tally and that the girl was far too danger prowned to be left defenseless, and so he had agreed to train her in self-defense.

    If only to get her to leave him alone about the bazooka at least.

    "this is so cool!" Tally said. Bloodscream stopped and turned to Tally.

    "There art two different art forms that I shall be teaching you Milady, the first thou wilst most likely know is Tai Chi the other is call Baguazhang and thou shall start with that. Bagau Milady has many variations, thou shall learn the yin style. In the Yin style there art eight triagrams, they art lion, monkey, rooster, dragon, bear, snake, phenoix, and qilin. Each triagram doth contain eight stiking methods and each method consists of seven strikes. All together the Bagau fighting style doth hold over 448 unique strikes that may be mastered."

    "448?!" Tally looked at Bloodscream in shock. "there's no way I can learn all of those." Bloodscream gave her a look.

    "Hey don't get me wrong! I'm extremely grateful that you're willing to teach me martial arts but come on, 448 moves on top of tai chi? We'd be at this forever. Bloodscream did not reply right away, instead making his way around the area as if surveying it. After doing a complete 180 scan of the area he turned his attention back to Tally.

    Bloodscream stared at Tally, she was small and light built. But she was anything other than lilthe, her body had the form of a woman her prime. She had the most harmless look to her, as if she could do no damage to anyone, as if she where frail. Sadley this was true, and Bloodscream knew this was true which was why he had agreed to the whole thing. He was not going to let Tally back out on him now.

    "Thou hast all the time in the world Milady, but..." He watched Tally look at him with more interest now. "It did cross my mine that mineself and thou may not have all the time in the world to train together. So I shall only teach you the rooster, phenoix, snake, and quilin forms. They will be most thou I believe and moving more quickly will allow Milady to train more on her own in case we should become seperated."

    "seperated?" Tally raised brow. "You're practically immortal why on earth would we be seperated?" Tally knew it was a stupid question to ask, she had lived near Bloodscream long enough to know his weaknesses and to know that there where plenty of people in portal breach that could pose as threats. But she wanted to hear from him some form of reasurance, some promise that he wouldn't let himself get killed.

    "Milady doth thou truely expect me to be thine bodygaurd for the rest of thine mortal life?" Bloodscream watched as tally's face became that of embarassment as she quickly ansewered no. But below the embarassment Bloodscream sensed a sudden wave of saddness accompanied with anger that seemed to turn in toward tally.

    Bloodscream sighed, sometimes he truely did wonder what he had gotten himself into.

    Tally hated feeling guilty, and right now in front of Bloodscream she hated feeling guilty more than she every had. Honestly what had she been thinking? It was stupid and selfish to assume that Bloodscream would stay around and be her bodygaurd forever, after all, he had life of his own. Tally heard Bloodscream sigh and she immediently tried to wipe the embarassment from her face.

    Bloodscream watched as Tally attempted to wipe the embarrassment from her face. "Now milady if thou art done, I shall so you the first steps to the rooster traigram." Bloodscream moved into the opening stance of the traigram, and then slowley he went through each of the seven strikes of the first striking method. Then just for his own amusment he showed her what it could look like when performed at a much faster pace.

    Tally watched as Bloodscream ran through the steps slowley the first time. To see bloodscream put himself through such odd looking moves nearly made her double over laughing. Was he really expecting her to do that?
    The Bloodscream went through the steps again, only this time he did them with the speed and precision that came from years of hard work. Tally found herself speechless as she watched his muscles move beneath his clothes, it was almost like he was dancing.

    Bloodscream came out of the triagram to find Tally staring at him with her mouth open, face locked in utter and complete surprise. Bloodscream felt a thrill of pleasure that he was still able to shock people into silence with what he could do.

    "now milady thou shall try thine hand at it."

    "r-right." Tally stutterd after being pulled from her gawking trance. Her face felt like it was burning as she tried to mimmick the opening pose just like she had seen bloodscream do it. But it felt like her body was out of place, and no matter how much she tried to convince herself that it wouldn't matter later on, the entire awekwardness of the pose made her flush bright red in embarrassment. It did not help that bloodscream was staring right at her with that quiet intensity that he projected from behind those sunglasses of his.

    Bloodscream watched in amusement as tally attempted to force her body into the new and unusual postion of the triagram. He felt her embarrassment flash through him and almost smiled, somtime being around tally was the most amusing past time.
    "Thou needs to bend thine legs more." Bloodscream moved tally's legs for her, then he began to fix any other details that were incorrect in her stance.

    Tally nearly jumped out her skin when she felt bloodscream put his hands on her legs to force them to move into the position that he wanted. And he couldn't just leave it at her legs oh no! He then had to completely fix every little thing that was wroung with her pose by HAND.

    Bloodscream moved away from tally to look over the pose, finding that tally was now in the proper pose he moved completely away to let her have some room. "Now milady, what I wish of thee is to stand there and feel how you are in the pose. Feel how thine muscles are placed and where they are, feel how thine bones are bent into the poses shape. After thou thinks that thou has the image in thine mind try the pose again."

    Tally took a deep breath and tried to do as bloodscream said, she focused on how her muscles felt in their postion and how she was holding herself, how high up her arms were and how bent her legs were. She stood there for a good two minutes trying desperatly to memorize the postion. Then she moved out of it and tried it again, she did better but still found that her footing was off and felt awkward to her.

    Bloodscream watched as tally tried to move back into the pose, she performed it better than she had the first time no doubt, but she was years from perfect. As right that moment though she appeared to be struggeling with her footing. Bloodscream found that he felt no irrtation in the slightest as he helped tally move her feet into the correct pose. If centuries of living had taught him anything it was that one had to be patient.
