    Tally tried the pose again after blood fixed her feet. She tried to picture the pose in her mind and place every single part of her into the correct place. Tally desperatly tried to imprint how her body felt and where everyone of her limbs went into her mind. After she failed at her feet on her second attempt she then messed up her legs again on the third and fourth try.

    Bloodscream helped position Tally everytime she messed up.
    "Thou art trying to hard milady." He remarked after noticing how tense her muscles had become.
    "If thou wouldst relax a bit more then milady would find it easier to fall into position."

    Tally let her muscles relax a bit, and found to her amazement that holding the pose was now a bit easier. She moved out of the pose and tried to go into it again, keeping herself more relaxed this time but not too relaxed. Tally felt her muscles fall into place along with her bones, she was so excited that she tried to go into the opening pose again. However she forgot to keep herself straight and found that she had relaxed to much when she nearly fell over. Dusting herself off in embarrassment Tally tried the opening pose again at least three more times, each time remeber to keep herself slightly relaxed but not to much.

    After tally had performed the opening pose at least a dozen times Bloodscream moved her onto the second part of the move. Bloodscream went through the second part by itself, then he showed it to tally along side the first move. He showed her at least three times before he insisted that she herself try.

    Tally attempted the second part of the traigram and found that much like in the first one she had no idea what went where and that it felt incredibly awkward. She tried again to place herself into the postion, but she found herself falling onto her but when she leaned back to far. Getting up quickly and mumbleling an apology to blood she attempted the pose again, her efforts weren't rewarded.... but at least she didn't fall on her butt.

    Bloodscream helped tally into the second postion much like he had helped her into the first moving her arms, legs and torso to where they needed to be placed. then he moved back and let her try to fall into the position again on her own.

    Tally tried to complete the second move a dozen times until she found her body becoming more use to the position. After that she attempted to place the first and second move of the triagrm togethter. Tally found out quickly that getting her body to flow as smoothley as bloodscreams could would probably take her a very,very long time. But she at least made it through the two moves connecting them.

    "very good milady. now run through the two moves again." Bloodscream watched as Tally ran through the two steps again and again. She ran through the moves at least a dozen times, then for good measure he had her run throught them at least a dozen more times. When Bloodscream finally began to see the tiniest bit of smoothness to her movement he moved her onto the third, fourth, and fifth move. He ran through each one individually, showing how the body would need to move, then he showed them one right after the other completely connected.

    Tally followed the pattern of the moves much like she had the first two. The first time she tried them she would find herself in awkward positions, but the longer she concentrated on the movements of her body the easier it was for her body to fall into place. Tally was soon focused on the moves that she didn't hear bloodscream tell her to stop.

    "what?" Tally stopped when she realized that Bloodscream had been talking to her.

    "what?" Tally had said when she finally realized that He had spoken to her. She had been working on the traigrams for the last ten minutes, completely focused on her movements bloodscream had seen her let go of her focus of the world outside of triagrams steps. Bloodscream found it rather unnerving to see tally so focused on something as she was usually the most scatter brained person he had ever met in his life. He watched as she moved her body through the triagram, she had potential that much was obvious but her movements would probably remain raw and mediocre for a month a best.
    "I said milady that is it time to move onto the last two steps if the traigram." Bloodscream showed the last two steps to tally at least five times individully before he put all the moves together in a steady and even string.

    Tally watched bloodscream flow through the step with the same awe she had watced him with the first time. And when he motioned for her to try the movements Tally found herself trying harder than ever to match Bloodscream movement, she wanted desperatly to be able to move through the triagrams like he had. She went through the steps individually before putting them together. And then when she had put them together she did them again and again and again. She did them so many times that she began to lose track of time. Her moves where far from perfect though, her body still felt awkward, and she still tripped and messed the movements up or she over reached or she didn't hold her arms right.

    But blood corrected her everytime and never once lost his patience with her.
