Indra had not thought anyone would follow them too soon as he went to the only secluded place this town had. He had found the foot of the falls that ran along a series of rocks and plenty of pools that branched from the river. The massive falls were a good place for training, it also made the sound of the falls drown out ambient sound-- aiding Indra to focus as his ears would pick up everything. It also lessened his sense of smell a bit, only so he could focus a bit more with the people he wanted to be attentive of. In this case, his little Exceed friend.
The cat had argued for a moment, but as they had left the vicinity of the pub, Kage returned more poised. He became less love-struck and actually listened to him. "Raijin-Sensei," he said, cocking his head, "Why you leave so fast? I thought you wanted to take it easy? Besides the lady was so nice." he said, his tail twitching a bit.
Indra stared down at him with folded arms as he sighed. "You have a lot to learn about Women, Kage. They can be the death of a man," Indra said as he let out a calm breath-- putting the image of her out of his head. "You didn't even know she was using allure magic on you."
This time, the excitement on the cat soon faded as he tilted his head. "Allure Magic? " he asked.
As the waterfall roared, Indra thought now was a good place to really start Kage's training. First step-- awareness. A ninja must always be prepared, so now was the time to teach him that. "Any warrior or ninja must be aware of their surroundings and senses. If you had used it all, including hearing, and scent, you probably cvould of tell she was using magic to make herself more seductive. "
Kage let out a soft growl and his hair went up as if he got shocked again. "What? Seriously?!" He said, feeling a sense of shame.
Indra closed his eyes as he explained. "I heard it around the guild hall and read ab out it in the monastery I grew up in. It's called in the western tongue as 'charm magic'. Charms have the ability to more or less hypnotize surrounding people into a state of attraction and even encourage... well uncharacteristic behavior. But this magic can be broken by simple awareness. If you know someone could use it, the magic has no effect on you. " Indra explained shrewdly. "It's kind of like Illusion Magic, that Itachi had."
Kage's eyes were wide with attention as he was impressed by Indra's realization. "Wow... so that woman was using charm magic? Why?" he asked.
Indra shrugged as he kicked off his boots and stepped into the waters of the falls. "Who knows. Maybe she wanted more attention. Still, awareness is key even when its not nessisary. Besides, its kind of hard to be excited by someone who is behaving so obvious, you know? " he said in a mild tease.
The Exceed knew Indra was a player-- almost envious of the man's prowess. In Kage's eyes he was a ninja and a person he could look up to. "I see. I'm sorry, Sensei... I'll try to be more aware of such things." He said, "Still-- she was hot." he said with a giggle.
Indra shook his head and laughed. "I never said she wasn't. Now why don't we clear our heads and get in that training you wanted, kay? Without Tailong here, we probably can do it in peace." Indra said with his hands on his hips. "So transform already and lett's get to it."
Kage gave an excited growl like a tiger kitten and hopped onto one of the stones. He brought his little paws together into what Indra could only imagine was a Midian handsign. It took him a moment, but then there was a flash and a poof of smoke. The cloud rose-- and soon, was Kage now in his 'battle form'. The once adorable tiger-size kitten Exceed was now a humanoid, full grown man-tiger with the same features, yellow eyes and more formidable looking claws. He nearly was almost as tall as Indra including his ears.
Indra had to admit, he was impressed. He knew little of Exceeds, but he was glad that Kage's more 'mature form' was battle hardened. It was hard to imagine the adolescent feline looked more like the smaller version of himself.
"Better, sensei?" Kage asked, his tone a bit deeper now.
While the two talked and interacted, they probably wouldn't notice the clear amount of cover that Kessicia could hide behind and spy on them. Though Indra's senses were sharp, it still was easy for her to hide, her sound muffled by the waterfall as was her scent somewhat. For now, she could easily spy on them as they worked out and trained. Indra easily began to spar with martial arts moves against the large were-tiger and him teaching the tiger better moves.
