With a resounding shudder, the building-sized crystal shifted slightly, leaning just ever closer to finally tipping over once and for all. Thin snaky cracks spread along the surface in a hand-sized area, the only noticeable damage it had taken from Azuki's unenhanced punch. "Geez these things are tough!" She pulled back a bit, her knuckles feeling a tad bit sore. It was strange to think there were massive growable crystals beneath Namek that could WITHSTAND hits from someone at a power that Azuki was at, though it certainly made training her form a lot easier. "You have a natural instinct for combat and whatever training you were provided earlier in life shines through, but with some proper guidance you can turn that brutish strength into something far more efficient."
Azuki's fighting style had always been rather primal in nature, though she was by no means dumb or untrained. "Gotcha," The hybrid paused to take a swig of lukewarm greenish water, drizzling some over her face for relief from the stuffy heat. "And while I'm at it..." Her abused bandage wraps were loosened until they fell from her arms naturally, Azuki stretching her fingers freely for a moment before setting to applying a fresh new layer of basic protection. It might seem trivial, but that wrapping has saved her a LOT of split and splintered knuckles in the past and she wasn't going to stop anytime soon.
Ollo's PL: 300,000 | Mazoku's Strength (x6) is Permanently Active! | Antisense is Permanently Active! Items: Nimbus
Since his meeting with his father, Ollo knew that change wasn't going to happen unless he made an effort to bring it himself. After spending a few days musing as to where to begin, he would finally decided to return on back home, seeing as it was the most familiar. Besides, he would probably be able to convince many of his friends back at the village to agree with him at the very least. Granted, it had been quite a few months since he had stepped foot in the Maima Fields and although it was his home, living a peaceful life in Pakashon Village felt like a distant memory.
At the very least he had Buddy Jr. who could help him get home much quicker. Of course, he was primarily used to riding it when in his younger form. Now that he had grown and his legs were all weird from the transformation, he had to get used to the basics such as balancing again. "Slow doooooooooooooooooooown!" The shout could be heard from across the fields as a figure from a yellow cloud zipped across the sky. Fortunately his cloud friend did slow down enough for him to take a glance at the ground although granted they looked pretty much the same up here.
Hey! Didn't that hole look familiar? Plus, there appeared to be a village in the distance! He was almost home! "Let's go down now ok Buddy Jr.?" Once again Ollo regretted the words that came out of his mouth as the cloud descended at a rapid angle. Unfortunately, he had miscalculated the speed his little cloud friend would send him. Instead of bringing him back towards the village, he would instead be sent towards a massive hole, one that he would have recognized as his childhood play area if he had the time to process it. Great.
Fortunately, his little growth spurt somehow would also enhance his durability so while getting shot face first into a cave wall hurt, he wasn't dead or greatly injured. While he could feel a missing tooth, Ollo wasn't particularly worried, seeing as he could already feel it once again growing. Still, the impact would shake the cave system, as a loud groan echoed through the tunnels. Slowly the cloud would trail behind him, as if nothing had happened. "We got to work on our landing." He muttered, trying to regain his thoughts after the impact.
"Almost there... and-" With a violent tremor, the entirety of the cave system heaved to and fro in a sudden unexpected motion, Azuki's hand slipping and leaving her wrap job as an imperfect one. "Fuck." What even caused that quake in the first place? Namek's plates were pretty damn dormant from what Azuki had learned, and she couldn't even sense any potential troublemakers nearby. Troublemakers, Azuki thought bemusedly. As if she wasn't already a troublemaker in her own right after those early meetings with the Shinjin. At least things had calmed down now, and Azuki was no longer the seemingly unstable font of power she had presented as before. "I guess I should investigate..."
SHOULD she, though? The hybrid had already learned the hard way that most Namekians were pleasant on the surface but typically fed up with any sort of shenanigans an outsider brought with them. It was one of the reasons why she had refrained from going to train with the Warrior Clan members. "Ugh," Azuki sighed deeply, turning back towards the twisty tunnels leading towards the entrance. "Just to make sure." She'd fall into a light jog, rounding the corner and ramping up a steep slope with little difficulty only to find a... thing. "Uh, hi?"
Man, his head hurt a lot. However with each throb, he could feel the pain dwindling slowly, but surely. Fortunately his body's healing was reliable if anything. His vision was still swimming, making as if he was seeing the world around him in twos. However, his sense of hearing still remained as sharp as ever, despite the slight ringing sound. A voice called out to him and as Ollo turned his head towards its source, all he could make out was one large orange blob, vision too fuzzy to see properly either. Seeing as they had not jumped out to attack him yet, maybe it was a safe assumption to believe they were friendly.
"Hi!" He said, bringing up his human hand as he swayed around, trying to keep his balance. His head was still hurting too much for him to stand up properly so he quickly placed the other two of his hands on the side of the wall for support. "Sorry if I caused any trouble. I didn't mean to shake it all up. I just..." Immediately he slumped against the wall, feeling an intense sense of nausea fill his vision. Maybe he had damaged his head a lot more than he thought. For now he would just close his eyes, and let out a sigh. "Sorry, I'm just really dizzy right now." At least he felt a bit better with his eyes closed.
