Within Nature ~ Training [Mikelobmike] (CLOSED)
« on: April 24, 2018, 04:40:38 PM »
When Teddy's turn for Budonoki's attention came, the old faunus led the younger to a spot not far from camp. Here the trees were thick and their shadows fell a deep amber, the air tinged with hints of sticky-sweet sap and decaying leaves. Budonoki kept to a casual, easy-going pace, letting the student fall into step without urgency.

"Though you may not know it, mister Williams," The surgeon-sage began. "You and I have a good bit in common. Besides both of us being faunus, we've also had much of our lives and world view defined by the actions of those who did -- and did not, unfortunately -- wish to see the peoples of Remnant live in peace with one another." He smiled over at Teddy, though the expression on his face was burdened with a quiet sorrow. "I'm sad to say that, although I never met your father, I have nothing but admiration for the way in which he lived his life. I suspect he would be proud to see you on the path to becoming a Huntsman yourself."

It was a heavy subject for simply being small talk, to be sure, and it seemed there was more that the old sage wanted to say... however, he stopped short, reconsidering. "Tell me... do you know where a Huntsman's greatest strength comes from?"

Teddy had started to grow impatient with the elder faunus's lessons as they went on in the forest around him. It was hard to relax in the beautiful grove knowing that any second could lead to a new lesson.

The air was sour with melancholy as Teddy was reminded of his father. Teddy could not help but miss him, even after the years went by. Teddy kept a mostly neutral expression, internalizing most of his sorrow. "He was a good man. From what I've heard, and excellent huntsman as well. He taught me so many things." he said, shaking his head to keep himself from trailing off again.

Teddy kept his hands behind him, playing with the sleeves of his jacket as they went. "A huntsman's greatest strength? I...I guess it would have to be adapting. Changing strategies, avoiding enemy strengths, exploiting enemy weaknesses. That's how huntsmen stay alive."
