    All in A Day's Training [Duel - Ezra vs Mura!]

    Post by Pupper on 10th June 2017, 8:48 am

    Morning dew on fresh blades of grass, flickers of morning light beaming down on Earthland, the soft moss that covered the roads. It was a tranquil feeling that greeted Ezra every morning. The redhead was always one of the last to sleep and the first to wake up. In fact, it had been nearly six in the morning when one could walk out to an empty field in Magnolia, a little ways from the Fairy Tail guild hall.

    Why was the redheaded man out here so early? Well, it had been routine for him to wake up early and stretch, but there was also another reason/ Just the night before, the intoxicated man had challenged his guild mate, Mura Kensho, to a spar between friends. It was more so for training than anything else, it wasn't always exciting to train by yourself. Perhaps bonding over battle was an excellent alternative instead of drinking, which Ezra had yet to see Mura do.

    Ezra took deep breaths and stretched about. Squats, push ups, the whole lot of it. Hmmm.... perhaps this may be too early for Mura. However, I am a man of my word. A spar in the wee hours is what I said, and it'll be what I do... Ezra thought to himself and he stared into the waking horizon, a shy sun hiding behind fluffy, thick clouds and a colorful sky.

    As he thought about the upcoming spar, he had thought back on his power. Just what is magic? What is it's purpose? From what one could tell, it only had potential to destroy. Magnolia Town was just another example of such destruction. Whether it be flames or water, there was always some sort of deadliness to such a power. Knowing that, no matter the purpose, no matter how righteous, the hand of sorcerer always seemed to be a dangerous one. A threat to all things and people. The Magic Council, what a delicate figure. Barely containing these powers like a glass having water in it until it if filled to the brim.

    Ezra stared down at his chilly hands, in a state of loss. He had remembered when he was young, just a toddler, and threw a temper tantrum when his Mother didn't get him what he wanted. It was then that his powers would reveal themselves in a tragic incident where his Mother would forever bare the scars of his anger. Luckily, no grudges were held after that, and continued to live in a fair and healthy household. But Ezra wouldn't realize what lingering horror of the incident remained in the back of his head and festered into the man of which he was now. A man who does what he does for the righteous cause but truthfully, he felt as if it were an excuse to do something with his life.

    Ezra shook his head and balled up his powerful fist with a smile, "I need to continue to shape into a righteous man. Use these powers to heal, not to harm." He whispered into his hand, reminding himself that he had friends now. People who cared for him as much as he did to them.

    The redhead looked back into the atmosphere with a confident smirk before flexing, "Alllllllrighty then! Back to 'trainin!"

    Note: Spectators are welcomed and even encouraged, if you ask, I shall include you in said duel. Enjoy! :3

    Apparently, today was going to be an outside day. Having the sun hiding behind a group of grey clouds, Mura was heading towards the field where Ezra was waiting; he’d seemingly invited the shaman the day before to have a battle with him. First, Mura hesitated because of the redneck’s intoxicated state, but it appeared to be more and more genuine by time. Heck, if Ezra was to forget it already, then it wouldn’t do much damage at all, so why not see if he was a man of his words? “… It’s the second time I’m going to fight against one of my guildmates,” Mura mumbled to Kyuken and Zirconis as they accompanied him, “Say, do you have any ideas of his magic? Kyuken, what have you noticed so far?” “Well, uhm… honestly, other than the canine look on his face, I don’t have much information to share… isn’t he using canine magic?” the samurai ghost replied with another question, confusing the rest of the gang.

    “He uses Dragon Slayer Magic,” Zirconis interrupted after a couple of moments. It came like a surprise for Kyuken, but Mura had an idea that if anyone possessed that kind of magic, then Zirconis would be the one to sense that. Other than that, it surprised him as well; Ezra never showcased his magic before. “… Hehehe…” he began chuckling in silence, “He does resemble Takumi a little... I mean, he doesn't have that much pride, but his very confident in his actions." The grass began appearing beneath his feet as he was approaching the meeting place, "... Nah, he resembles Hera even more. But then again...” Playing around with his thoughts of all their resemblances, he kept walking towards what looked like a huge plain with a few roads where Ezra was to be spotted. There, Mura showed up with a soft smile, waving over at the red-haired upperclassman. “Good morning, Ezra..!” he greeted. To show that he accepted the invitation, both his swords - Harusame and Futsunomitama - were strapped on his back and left side of his leg. He needed those two efficient mediums to stand against a powerhouse like him…

    The redhead continued to stretch and warm up while his mind was submerged in thoughts of the past and the looming mystery that is the future. He couldn't keep himself from wondering just what his fate was, if it even existed. Since becoming a professional sorcerer, it was hard to tell. Was he destined for darkness, light, or perhaps his fate was beyond magic? Was it to be a fisherman and die old with a wife and two kids, or was it to travel the world to uncover its mysteries?  Ezra would never know if such a fate would be bestowed upon him in a day or a century, the wait was painful.

    However, a strange presence tickled his nose and ears when he had suddenly heard a disembodied voice along with a croaky one. His mind rushed to many conclusions before he decided that it happened to be the few companions Mura had. Following that was the scent of the familiar Mura, who smelled just as refreshing as the morning air.

    Ezra's sense of smell, sight, and hearing were second to none. Well, maybe other dragon slayers and werewolves, but the two combined were an unstoppable force! Meanwhile, Ezra continued to wake his body up with helpful stretches and physical exercises, his face cracking into a soft smile.

    As expected, Mura had arrived at the destination soon after Ezra had detected. The man with blazing red hair turned to the young man gave a thumbs up with his usual toothy grin. "Hidy do, Mura! Fine morning, ain't it? Perfect 'fer some tussling, some fitness 'n all." Ezra jollied, excited for this event. After all, it was a spar between two men! What a thought? Besides, Ezra had yet to comment on Mura's combative power, rather excited for the upcoming reveal.

    "Now, we can't start without you and 'yer buddies stretching! Even the soul-looking thing! Stretching and warm up exercises are important, ya hear? Now, give me ten push-ups, boy!" Ezra went from a playful partner to a fitness trainer in a matter of seconds. No, perhaps a military trainer. He was more so concerned about his body's physical readiness than the battle itself, which was both sweet and daunting.

    Well, Ezra was always having an enthusiastic atmosphere, even when Mura just showed up. The shaman did have trouble with his choice of words, though, as every sentence felt like a puzzle. However, he couldn’t help it, could he? Dialects could be extremely distinguishing between several places in Fiore, and he wasn’t any pure example of an understandable talker. Now that he thought about it, why was he even thinking about such a trivial thing? Today was important; Ezra had challenged him a while ago when the shaman met him having a time with the others, surrounded by bottles of alcohol… when he remembered that, Mura began sweating a little, feeling that what Ezra said that day could be easily forgotten or mistaken.

    Nevermind, the red-haired artist kept his words by the greeting. “Yes, it’s quite calm… for now,” Mura replied. He was also eager for the battle that awaited the two men, but then Ezra mentioned stretching; a good-old way of preparing for an activity. The fun part of that was the way that he included [i]soul-looking[I] to need stretching as well… he could be right, though. It all came so fast, too, so Mura found himself surprised by the sudden ‘give me ten push-ups, boy!’. “O-Oh, already..?” he let out with a few steps back before deciding to go with it. He went down on his knees and readied his legs and arms as Kyuken imitated that in his spirit-ball form. “… Hehehehe, I haven’t done this in a while,” he commented as he consecutively performed push-ups after each other. Kyuken found it no problem; despite that the main part of his life had been wielding light weapons and agile movement, he did adapt into heavy performance. Zirconis didn’t know what to do, though; the dragon used to walk on all four, so what was this? Bow down and eat the grass?

    Taizen was having a great day. He was able to go take a break from being a father and... not a husband. He should fix that quickly, was it wrong to have children when they were only dating. It didn't matter, he loved his daughter and Alex anyway. He was having a merry time, and, apparently, two others were sparring? This was going to be interesting to watch.

    "Good afternoon you two. Somehow related Mura, and exuberant Ezra." Taizen would say as he walked in on the scene.

    Sitting by a window nearby, she could see the boys outside of the guild. Although she couldn't make it out through the glass window quite; she could clearly hear the voices due to her superhuman hearing. As she sat at her table, she couldn't help but to put her soda down and slide the window open.

    "Go easy on em Mura!" she said as she would lean in the window, watching from here. Her D sized chest and sunglasses going up on her head as she moved em up, leaning on an elbow. She would make eye contact with Ezra and blush, knowing full well that he knew where her heart lay. "Wow, Mura's the only one warming up.....how quaint....at least one of you knows the values of exercise." she said, pretty much saying that Ezra considered himself 'above' such exercises as she tapped her fingers on her face while leaning in the window.

    She then would turn toward Taizen as she leaned in the window.

    "HO there! Family man! You buy a ring yet?" as she'd heard Taizen had just welcomed a new baby into the world. "Might wanna stand back a bit I think they're about to throw down...." out of nowhere, she had popcorn.

    Everything seemed to be going as planned. See, Ezra was rather an old-fashioned man. He liked doing things the "old-fashioned way" and wouldn't rely on magic to do simple requests or exercises. He had grown up in a village where hard work and real strength was more respected than magic. In other words, winning a fist fight with just your fists is more appreciated than using any sort of magical advantages or enhancements. And thus, the redhead became a man who would always build things by hand, not by magic, and almost never showcased said magic to anyone, as he wanted to be recognized for his true strength, not his gift.

    Entering the scene would be the goody-two-shoes Taizen, who had been away from the guild for a certain amount of time to deal with his new family. Ezra greeted him with his usual toothy grin and nodded his head, "Hidy do, Mister Taizen. We can have a drink o'er 'yer new folks after this tussle. Might wanna stand back, ya hear?" He snickered, turning over to the observant Hera and waved.

    While Mura prepared, Ezra also prepared himself. This would, in fact, be the first time he had ever showcased his magic. All that was known among his guildmates as the nature and the type, but never it's power. The redhead would raise his arms and take deep breaths, a frosty mist slipping between his lips and rolling off the tongue and into the atmosphere. His sky blue eyes sharpened, and his magic power had spiked. He was ready to begin the match. "Ready, boy?"

    Mura’s mouth was wide-open as he did his push-ups. He was far from adapted to too much heavy action; in all honesty, it was quite obvious that both his style and strength laid in the delicate aspects. Calm, controlled, auric, intellectual, name them all. Things that would moreover suit a true machoman wasn’t his style at all, and even if he had no trouble doing the push-ups, with his body that was a little thinner than Ezra’s, it would look like a stickman playing Mr. Satan. “-So, are you… trying to tire me out before the battle..?” he spoke up rather comically to Ezra, feeling that if the red-haired mage had something planned, then that could be a possibility; to see what Mura could demonstrate in exhaustion. However, Taizen quickly arrived in the scene and made his presence known for both of them. “G-Good afternoon to you too, aniki,” the shaman replied back. It was sad that he didn’t bring Mai-chan with him, because she would’ve surely enjoyed the spectacle. And as soon as Mura was about to give the last push-up a load, Hera’s voice surprised him enough to let his arms collapse and let him fall to the ground heavily. Kyuken’s eyes were quickly aiming up at her, while he called: “Hello, Hera! Why don’t you come down here and watch the battle up close?”

    Screw it, the last push-up wouldn’t do any difference. Mura quickly made it up on his toes and leapt a few inches up in the air on one foot at a time to adjust. “Aaaand there we go,” he mumbled in relief, feeling that his body was balanced enough. Then, he switched his gaze over to Ezra as his magic was finally revealed for the first time. Not even a moment went by before Mura was reminded of Hana, because his magic truly resembled hers more than he thought. “Ice… and his spirit,” Mura mumbled to the two ghosts beside him, “I’m pretty sure that he uses that kind of magic now. Zirconis, I’m sorry, but you’ll have too much trouble against him.” The look on Zirconis’ face was enough to reply his inner, angry, displeased feeling. Stepping his right foot around to face Ezra, Mura closed his eyes for a brief while. That was when everything went silent, indicating that he was about to get ready. His magic power was different than Ezra’s, having adapted a more calm way of emitting and affecting its targets. Dots of light rose from the grass, and logs around them suddenly began lighting up around the contour in response to his magic, along with the skin of every single person nearby; including his blonde, sisterly friend at the guild. After a moment, everything faded its light away, leaving only Mura blurring. His eyes had opened again, while he had unsheathed Harusame without any sound. His hair was soaring as he spoke: “I’m ready.”

    Taizen would've loved to stay and watch the fight, but he remembered he had something urgent going on.

    "I've gotta go. It was nice seeing all of you."

    And like that, he was gone.
