Hikaru was on her merry way and quite pleased with herself...for a moment until she suddenly came flailing down at the hands of Yumei and a ninja feint. She laid there on the ground for a moment, flat on her face. She slowly reached forward with her hand and lifted herself up and looked up towards where the girl was running off to, seeing Eiichi not too far ahead of her. For a moment she had the calmest, serene expression on her face when her eyes suddenly became white and she let out a shriek of anger.
"You better pray to every God you have I don't catch you!" She roared and immediately got up and chased after them. At least she did for a moment when she got a better idea. She didn't need to chase after Yumei. She was faster and stronger. She knew where the training ground was, all she had to do was get there first and she could get a bell before her. Let's her clever tricks get her out of that one.
"The shortest distance between two areas is a straight line. Why take the main road when I can take the back road!" She said to herself and turned off into the nearby forest, running through to get to the training ground, but she was still pretty agitated at being embarrassed like that. "Who does she think she is, she started it, I was just getting even! Next time I won't be so nice about it!" She said pudding up her cheeks. She knew she was nearing the training ground and looked around for the red X. It had to be around here somewhere she didn't need to be a genius to find an X. That's when she found it and came to a sliding halt. "Ah, ha! There is it and no sign of little miss perfect either." She said looking around "Now where...is the desolate one?" She asked herself wondering there their sensei was so she could get these bells already. In the meantime, she applied her crystal armor, covering her body in a thin sheet of transparent crystal that increased her defense and physical attacking ability.
