Rey yawned as he observed the empty arena, bored out of his mind. Oh how he would love it if somebody would spar with him, or somebody else, really anything to alleviate his boredom. His blue eyes half-closed, he leaned back against the wall, hoping something interesting would happen soon. Perhaps he would make it a test of sorts for himself to fight the first person who entered the arena.

August was still annoyed over the last time he sparred with someone, usually he didn't care over such trivial things, but being called a liability because of his leg was enough to make him care more about his fighting skill. Not that he wasn't skilled or anything, but maybe he could figure out a way to fight and not have to worry about where he's putting his bad leg all the time.

So that's why August found himself walking into the arena for the third time this week, even though he was probably better off in the Amphitheater...

Rey sighed again, but one eye cracked open as somebody new entered the arena. He didn't recognize them, but he had challenged himself to fight the first person who entered the arena and he was going to do just that. Jogging over to the other boy with sword safely sheathed at his side, he stopped once he reached the other boy. "Hey, you looking for a sparring partner?"

August looked around the arena, not much was going on. There was one kid sleeping on the bleachers, and August figured it'd be best not to disturb him so he made his way to the other side of the training floor, and picked up one of the practice swords, trying to get a feel for its weight. By the time August had found his preferred weapon, the kid that had initially been asleep on the other side of the arena had managed to sneak up on him, and was now standing right next to him. He looked at him, "Yeah, sure."

The kid had said sure, so in response Rey nodded and unsheathed his own weapon, a white and black enameled short sword made for thrusting and parrying. He face the other boy, twirling his sword in one hand, surveying the boy with the other. The other boy seemingly put all his weight on one side... Perhaps he was injured or some such? But it was no matter, now was a time for sparring. "Ready?" He called.

"When you are." August stated, simply. August knew that when he was walking his limp had become less obvious over the years, but he still had a habit of leaning to the left when just standing. He could tell that the other kid had already picked up on that fact, most people he sparred with figured it out in the first few minutes of fighting. August stayed unfazed though, instead he just smirked, and got ready for the kid to start.

Rey nodded at the other boy's response, getting into his usual odd stance. It was weird, but it worked well with a short blade like his. He went in for the attack, sword poised to either thrust or block depending on how the other boy responded to his charge. Chances are he would try to block, but he had to keep his guard up.

August usually would've blocked, but this spar, at least for him, was in order for him to practice new moves, and change his usual fighting style up a bit. So instead of blocking, August moved to the side in case he decided to thrust anyway, and swiped his sword down at the boy aiming to knock the sword out of the kid's hands.

Instead of blocking, the other boy decided to instead move to the side, and attempted to knock the sword out of his hands, but he was having none of it. He met the other sword with his, the sound of clashing metal echoing as he then spun, thrusting with his sword, testing the other boy.

August blocked the kids next thrust. Did this kid only know how to thrust? Maybe he was new? August wondered, as he pushed the other kids sword away from him. He took a step backwards as their swords collided with each other, the force of the blow wasn't that strong but he took a step back anyway. He pushed the kids sword away from him, and swung his sword at the kid. He then had to take another step back, so he could send a round-house kick at the other boys face. August used his bad leg, that had the metal brace attached to it, who knew it could be used as a weapon? He hadn't until a few months ago...
