Shinrei laughs and calls the fight when Amajina gets past her. 

Permalink

"...That was fun."

Permalink

"Yeah!!!" Amajina has a wave carry her closer to land.

Permalink

Sayuri nods, grinning. "It was."

Permalink

"Do you always use that much water?" she asks Amajina.

Permalink

"Depends what I'm doing? But grabbing a lot is usually easier than grabbing a little, which is part of the chakra control thing I wanna work on."

Permalink

"What about when you're not near the shore?"

Permalink

"It's harder to get enough and I can't fight efficiently, yeah... Iso - Someone thought I should be able to condense water from humidity, but it'll take a lot of control."

Permalink

"Something to work on, then."

Permalink

"Pretty much. Room to grow."

Permalink

...She's not actually sure what to say next, here. Socialization is not her strong jutsu.

Permalink

Why be good at socialization when you can just chatter friendily enough no one notices you're a socially awkward dweeb.

"If we're not gonna do more sparring - there's some really cool tide pools I can show you guys, and I wanna make sure the fight didn't mess with them anyways."

Permalink

"What makes a tide pool particularly cool?"

Permalink

A pause, like she's never tried to explain this to someone who didn't agree that tide pools are inherently cool.

"Tide pools are some of the hardest places to live for organisms, 'cause they change a lot, so the ecosystems in them have a lot of weird adaptations. And conditions in pools varies a lot with its size and what the substrate is and what the local tide is like, so sometimes you get combinations of those that are really unusual. Or you get a species from a group that isn't usually found in tide pools, or one with really unusual adaptations."

"I see. Sure, let's go."

Permalink

"Yeah. Sounds neat."

Permalink

"We can take a break," their sensei says, "But I would like to do some more training after lunch. Still, it's good to spread that throughout the day."

Permalink

"Okay!" Amajina chirps, before leading her team over to the tide pools, explaining as she goes how (and why) not to get too close and further disrupt them, rambling about the salinity and rock structure here, pointing out some anemones that're fighting each other...

Permalink

Not really something Elaise has paid attention to before... Kind of interesting, actually.

Permalink

Amajina's not the best at explanations - she knows a lot, and sometimes skips over things she thinks are obvious, and she's very energetic about this - but she's willing to backtrack and explain more when questioned, and clearly loves the subject.

Permalink

Still a better teacher than some she had at the academy.

Permalink

Amajina fortunately has never had to suffer through standardized education!

She does eventually run low on easily accessible things to show off and ramble about, though. And lunch is approaching. They're probably all getting pretty hungry.

Permalink

...Yeah, actually, she is.

Permalink

Sayuri's not in the mood for anything particular, so she guesses it's up to her teammates if they have preferences for food?
