His eyes widened as he heard that familiar voice. Just as he was about to turn around, someone had tackled him onto to the ground. Luckily he had his arm to guard his head going face first into the ground.
A role of sweat rolled down his head. "Good to see you haven't changed, Karela..." he muffled.
Ryuu smiled amusingly down at Karela and Kaneda. "I've noticed he always either hesitates or holds back when it comes to sparring with girls..."
Kaneda struggled to move his head to eye Ryuu. A glaring, yet visually amusing face stared back at the Kenjustu Master. "They didn't need to know that, Ryuu-sensai!"
Ryuu beamed. He focussed his attention on Karela. "We've met before; back at the village. Its good to see you again."
