back to the dojo, everyone watched as Cody and Greg get ready to spar. Both got into their fighting stances.
"Just remember, Greg, you're only on orange belt."
Greg narrowed his eyes at Cody. "I don't care. The more experience,
the better I'll be."
"Okay you two," said Hokuto. "Can we just get this over with? I'm tired and so are the rest of

Rena watched as Cody and Greg slowly go closer to each other. Then,

Greg threw series of punches at Cody. Cody blocked every one of them easily. Suddenly,
Cody grabbed hold of Greg's forearm and flipped him over. Greg landed hard on the ground on his back. Cody got back into his
fighting stance as Greg got himself back up.
As Greg ran back towards Cody, Cody lightly jumped in the air and performed

Greg nodded. He tooCody's hands and pulledimself

The two best friends stared at each other narrowing their eyes. Then,
they both ran towards each other.
Guy elbowed Cody, but Cody blocked the move. Then, Cody managed to throw a roundhouse
kick, but Guy blocked that move as well. Cody started throwing series of punches. Guy would either block them or dodge out
of the way.
Cody jumped back a little. As he does, Guy jumped in the air and flipped over Cody. Guy landed on the ground
and performed a high kick at Cody's face. Cody blocked the move. Guy began throwing series of punches at him and Cody blocked

Guy continued throwing punches at Cody and Cody continued blocking them. Then, Guy
jumped back. After landing on the ground with his feet, Guy quickly threw his whole body at Cody and elbowed him. Cody didn't
see it coming and was struck in the chest.
"Cody!" cried Jessica.
Cody jumped back. "Damn it Guy! I hate it
when you do that."
Guy smirked and jumped in the air. He put out one leg and spun himself around. "Bushin Senpukyaku!!"
Guy cried out. Cody was hit in the face a few times before flying backwards. Guy landed on the ground with both feet.

to know more about the Bushin arts.
Guy ran over to Cody, grabbed his shirt, and throws him across the dojo.

Guy laughed. "That was too easy for me. I think it's you who needs the training."
except Rena laughed. Rena was still sitting there amazed by Guy's Bushin moves.
"All right," said Kairi. "Let's go
home now. It's getting late."
Everyone packed their stuff up. Guy walked over to Rena. "Do you want me to walk you
Rena looked into his dark eyes. "Sure."
Cody, who heard what Guy said to Rena, walked up to him with
Jessica in his arms. "Well, we'll see you two later." He winked at Guy.
Guy narrowed his eyes.
"Rena, come here
for a second," they heard Nanase say.
Rena smiled at everyone. "I'll be back," she said. She walked over to Nanase.

Guy narrowed his eyes more.

"Bye Guy," Jessica said. The young couple made their way

Hokuto and Kairi walked over to Guy. "We'll see you tomorrow, big brother," said Kairi.

Then, Greg and Nanase walked over to him. Guy looked at his
youngest sister. "You're walking home with him in this city?"
Greg threw a punch at Guy. Guy immediately blocked it.
Greg smirked at Guy. "We'll see you tomorrow."
"Bye," Guy said. Greg and Nanase walked out the door.

Rena looked at Guy. "So, those are the Bushin arts you performed?"
into Rena's dark eyes. "Yes. I learned the style back when I used to live in Japan."
Rena nodded. Guy took out some
keys chained to each other. "Well, let's go."
They walked out of the dojo. Guy locked the dojo up and then made sure
that the door was locked and secured. Then, the two of them made their way down the streets of Metro City.
way to Rena's apartment, they tried to keep up as much conversation as possible.
"Where exactly in Japan did you live?"
"Osaka. It was all right there, but I like it here better. I've been living here for
the last few years with my brother and sisters. I'm the oldest out of the four of us."
Rena smiled. "I'm the oldest
too, but I only have one younger sibling."
"Maybe you can come back to the
dojo tomorrow and bring Maki with her."
"All right, I'll have to ask her then when I get home."

Rena smiled. "Sure."
They walked towards the café. Guy
opened the door for Rena. Rena walked in. 'Such a gentleman for someone who is anti-social,' Rena thought.
wasn't as busy as the last time Rena was here. Within five minutes, Guy and Rena received their hot drinks and sat down by
one of the window tables.
"So how did you know I was in trouble?" Rena asked Guy. "I mean, I was in a part of an alley
which no one can see anything."
"I heard you cry for help," Guy replied.
Rena felt her face burn with embarrassment.
She forgot that she had cried for help.
"It's okay," Guy replied noticing the redness on Rena's cheeks. "Sometimes
when things like that happen, we usually forget the minor details."
Rena nodded in agreement.

remember the apartment building you live in," Guy said.
"You do?" Rena asked.
Guy smirked a little. "It's a
decently tall concrete building. I think the color was gray. Its building number is two twenty five."
She couldn't believe Guy remembered that, especially the building's number.
"If you remembered, how come you didn't
come over here to find me?" She gave him a seductive smile.
The smile made Guy's cheeks turn red a little. He hoped
that the burning of his face was only the bitter cold. "I live pretty far from this area. Plus I think I would've got lost
if I tried to find it."
"Okay," Rena said. "I'll accept that excuse."
They made it to Rena's apartment building.
They went into the building and towards the elevator. Rena pressed the up button. When the elevator doors opened, they

Rena laughed a little. "Floor ten."

Rena stepped out of the elevator.
They walked a few doors down before stopping in front of the door of Rena's apartment.

"Yeah," Guy said. "It's a good thing Nanase works there or else I would've never saw you again."
laughed a little. Then, Guy looked into her eyes. "Do you want to meet for dinner on Friday night?"
Rena felt her heart
flutter as she heard this. She smiled. "Sure."
It was only Wednesday, but now Rena wished that it were Friday.
smirked when he received her answer.
"So," Rena said. "Do you know how to get out of here?"
"Yeah," Guy replied.
"I'll just take the Subway back to my apartment."
"All right," Rena said. She sighed. "Good night, Guy."
Rena opened the door to her apartment. She looked at Guy one more time before closing the door.
sighed and started making his way towards the elevator. He pressed the down button. He couldn't stop thinking about Rena.
They wouldn't see each other until tomorrow when she came to the dojo with her sister, but Guy, for some reason, wished that
this minute was the minute he would see Rena again.
