Title: [RP] Training
Post by: Alexandros Kokkinos on 16 January, 2018, 04:53:37 PM
Aeolos was escorted into the weaponry room. In another room, which was linked to the room he stood in with Master Kokkinos, he saw different soldiers wrestling with each other, shooting at targets, and hacking away at dummies.

Why he was being forced into training as a soldier, he could care less. All he cared, was that this was an opportunity that could help to be someone important. He was receiving some strange looks from a handful soldiers.

Master Kokkinos finally spoke up. Pick a weapon Or, he offered, You could practice hand-to-hand combat.
He gestured to the many weapons and tools that lay on tables and shelves.

Could you teach me hand-to-hand finding?” he asked. I’d rather learn wrestling and defense without a weapon first. It could save my life, and it was almost as reliable as a weapon.

Of course runt. Master said.

He inwardly groaned. He gestured  to follow him to the near-center of the room, which later on, he knew he'd be grateful it had a mat laid on the ground.

The next two or three hours did not go very well for me.

I did learn some things, such as how to throw a punch, kicking, disarming, arm and head locks, and knocking someone unconscious. The portion in which I learned those skills wasn’t so bad.

But when Master Kokkinos came at me with a knife, expecting me to have mastered all of these skills just as quickly as he ran, the good feeling I had quickly disappeared.

Just before he brought the knife down, I ducked and rolled out of the way. I threw a punch at him, but he ended up not being where I last saw him, he was now behind me.

I tried to kick him, but he grabbed my leg before it made contact with his stomach, and threw me to the map. Before I could stand up again, he had straddled me, effectively pinning me to the mat.

He held the knife to my throat, and after a ten second count, he got off of me and helped me to my feet.

I left the training room and I escorted Aeolos back into the same room he practically lived in.

Nice work today, runt, but if you want to beat me, you have to do a little better than that.

Be prepared and wear fresh clothes because later will be my escort to the meeting with the emperor

We’ll see later fighter I said sarcastically, and I left the room shutting down the heavy wooden door.
