Lulu kept careful track of the exchange, and when Raika reminded her, popped one of the herbal supplements into her mouth to swallow. She didn’t mind the taste or texture, so it went down fairly smoothly, much to Lulu’s pleasant surprise. “Thank you, I will not waste this opportunity. Your abilities are truly formidable and respectable, ma’am.” she wasn’t even being facetious at this point. The fact that Raika was able to treat Lulu’s weaknesses in such a quick and effective manner was immensely impressive to her, regardless of how common or uncommon such skills might be. Anyone capable of removing the weakness from others in such a way, to Lulu now, were worthy of her respect.

Flexing her arm from the shoulder to the digits, Lulu’s eyes began to follow Satori’s movements. She was genuinely curious about the mention of a trial, she’d never been through one before, but knew that it was probably a topic for later. Instead she just nodded along with each thing, including when she was told that it was finally time for the thing she’d been waiting all day long to have.

Without another word, Lulu had risen up and was standing beside Sato. Her heart was beating faster and she could feel the anticipation rising in her gut. She wanted this, more than anything else in the world right now, and she was nearly pressing up against Satori in her eagerness to get him moving. Even before they’d gotten started she was rolling back and forth on the balls of her feet, unwilling to contain her excitement any longer, “Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go!” she exclaimed, not even bothering to ask about the trials yet.

Satori tilted his head slightly as the girl seemed so eager to fight, of course, he didn't mind fighting by any means, but it was odd seeing someone so excited about it. Combat was common in his clan, it was as natural as doing chores, it wasn't something they got "excited" about as much as it was something that they simply felt the need to do. Pondering this, he would simply turn and exit with a wave to his mother, before leading the way down through the hallway once more. It didn't take him long to get through the doorways and into the open air once more, breathing it in briefly and sniffing at the air curiously for any foreign chakra signature.

There weren't any. Satisfied by that he would begin moving through the darkness toward the far southern edge of the compound, where a large entryway would lead into what appeared to be a flat, grass-covered area with multiple training dummies and sigils carved into the stones to provide a variety of effects based on the knowledge of the user. Satori entered without concern, stepping into the grassy fields as the soft light of the moon began to slowly fall over them, stretching idly as his long limbs shifted slightly.

After a few moments, he would settle back and kick off his sandals, allowing the claws of his toes and fingers to slowly extend and retract a few times before turning to face the girl. His hands resting lightly on his hips, he would tilt his head slightly. In his clan, the fight would have begun the moment they entered the arena, but that wasn't how the Academy and most of the village did it. There were rules, and since she was ignorant of the rules here he would abide by her own.

"Any preferences?" he asked simply while he rolled his right shoulder in slow circles, his left hand carefully massaging the muscles to help them loosen and relax. The darkness not appearing to hinder him, though a few lanterns and the moon was casting a bit of light. Ryuutei weren't limited by the darkness or by being visually hampered, their animal-like senses meant that they preferred the dark in fact. His nose and ears were far more useful than his eyes, even if they could see well enough in the limited light.

Cocking his head slightly to the side, he would watch and wait, curious about what her first action would be, would she attack as soon as she stated her rules? Or hold back? How would she attack? His eyes remained focused on her own, but his other senses had long ago been primed and ready for combat. He couldn't help but be curious-- how would this end?

She had followed Satori to a dim battlegrounds, where reliance on sight wasn’t exactly the best policy, and that was fine by her. Her naturally weakened eyesight had always been a problem for her, so she’d learned to rely on other senses. Even though she had an ace that quickly rectified the issue, she wasn’t allowed to use it normally. In an ironic way, the darkened arena suited her almost equally as well as it did the Ryuutei.

Satori spoke, but she was having a hard time listening, and a harder time processing, as she looked around herself by spinning in a circle like a child, “Preferences?” she stopped spinning, staring directly at the bestial male before her, “Like, how I wanna fight? Hmm… We could both fight with our hands tied behind our backs! That’d be funny.” she giggled at the thought, but was already shaking her head in opposition to the idea, “How can I care about rules at a time like this?” she threw her hands up and outwards, gesturing toward the sky, “I just wanna fight… come on, come beat the weakness out of me while I beat it out of you!”

She was holding back, but not for Satori’s sake. Her stance was bad, her arms were spread, she was purposely leaving herself wide open but it all seemed a young girls exasperated excitement to be sparring. She could hardly help it, with how badly she felt she needed this. It felt long so long since the last fight, and training against wooden dummies only helped so much.

With adrenaline coursing through her veins, heart beating faster and faster, Lulu shivered visibly in the moonlight, “Come on then! Don’t you dare go easy on me…” her hands lowered just slightly, to be directly out from her sides, like an open embrace. She was ready.

Satori blinked as the girl clearly was beyond itching to tussle with him, laughing softly before he would place both hands on his hands on his hips as she opened her arms eagerly. She was beyond ready for a fight it would seem, and as he slowly released a breath he would relax his shoulders, before lifting his gaze upward to examine her for a brief moment. His senses reached out carefully, feeling the difference in the girl's movements, the beat of her heart, the uneven shake of her breath as she shivered.

Slowly, he lowered himself into a crouch as he would step out of the sandals decorating his feet, his claws extending slowly from his feet and hands both as they would loosely touch the ground. The massive boy falling to sit on his haunches, allowing a single second to pass-- and then he was moving. Launching from his spot, his ears honed for the smallest movement, his feline eyes focusing on the girl like a cat on a mouse.

His launch pushed the boy off the ground, causing his claws to rend the earth upward as he exploded at his top speed toward her. His hands extending outward, but instead of aiming to bite into her flesh, they slammed into the earth midway between them. Satori used the momentum of his launch to flip his body, using his hands as an anchor and launching himself again immediately afterward. The result was Satori propelling himself forward like a human spear, his large size and weight, combined with the double-launch and flip adding tremendous raw momentum and speed to the attack.

His legs extending outward aiming a powerful, high-speed kick directly at the girls center of mass. Of course, if it landed directly he had no doubt the girl would suffer substantial damage, but that wasn't what he was looking for. Instead, a grazing blow would be enough, or even forcing her to dodge, or deflect the blow. Satori didn't fight like other Ryuutei that swung around their great power without forethought. No, he used his power to his advantage, his agility and senses as focal points, but his primary weapon was his mind.

Satori specialized in countering at the most opportune moments, it was a form of combat that he had been a natural at since the beginning. It wasn't martial arts or even Taijutsu, instead, he practiced something far more simple: killing arts. Every attack was designed to kill, to create an opening to kill, to maim so that he could kill, there was no wasted movements, no flashy tricks, only movements that amplified speed and power. Whatever she did, he would dissect it as quickly as possible. He'd pick apart her style until he found every weak point, abusing each one he found along the way, without mercy.

He was a hunter, a killer, and he had never pretended to be anything other than exactly that. He was a Ryuutei after all, through and through.

Having stood there with her arms wide, inviting the first attack, Lulu had just enough time to examine how Satori moved. How they acted in combat. It was feral in many ways, something she half expected after having seen the way Satori looked, but when applied to human physiology it was difficult to predict without making guesses. So she couldn't even flinch until she saw her opponent launched into the air. This would be the only time she had to make a move before they recovered.

Letting her full weight shift backward, she used her own unconventional style, leaning until she was no longer standing but instead falling quickly with the aid of gravity. She kept her arms out until just the moment that Satori would be passing overhead, and if given the opportunity she would bring them swiftly together to create a thunderous clapping noise just shy of her target's face. And their ears. She wasn't trying to attack, not yet, but instead looking for any potential weaknesses. She knew that animals had strong senses of smell and hearing, and even the ability to see better at night than most humans. If Satori's actions, and appearance, were anything to go by she intended to take out at least one vital sense before truly starting to move in.

However, this also left her apparently flat on her back, and she had to assume that Satori wouldn't have thrown themselves into the air without some method of stopping themselves as well. So whether her attempted attack on Satori's senses was successful or not, she was already attempting to roll her body and lift herself back onto her feet, turning to face Satori if he had in fact sailed over her.

Her choice in a defensive maneuver, as well as counter, was-- interesting. But he had no desire or issue taking advantage of it. If the girl wished to put her hands that close to his head, he'd happily take advantage of it-- and so he did. As soon as the girl's hands lifted upward, his own remained to drag behind him, claws extended. However they didn't come into play-- no, instead Satori did the opposite thing that any normal human did when an attack approached their head and face.

He leaned into it. Taking the slam to both sides of his head without concern, it was painful, but that didn't matter, the pain was just a passing annoyance. What mattered was that as her own hands had come near, his own mouth had opened, and now his teeth slammed down in an attempt to bite directly into her arm. Long teeth glinting in the light, as in the same motion as his jaw snatched down, his hands that had been dragging behind him curled.

The combination was simple, he was going to use her to stop his own massive weight. Biting into her arm with crushing force far beyond a normal humans jaw, combined with razor-like teeth. Just as his hands continued to flex in order to dig into her clothing, her flesh, anything they could to latch onto her. All of the force built from his momentum continuing, not bothering to stop himself naturally in any way, as if at home in mid-air combat just like the beast he so resembled.

He was using the momentum to cling to her and drag her to the earth with him. Satori had no issue grappling, biting, shredding, it was all the same to him in a battle. A wild grin played at his lips as their collision ensued. How far would he drag her? Would he simply injure her arm and shred off some of her clothing, or would he drag her along by the arm and cloth to the grass? Or perhaps something more?

It was all so curious, for someone that seemed to enjoy battle so much it was hard to say, but she didn't seem to react like a fighter. Her decision to attack in such a way was odd, but, perhaps she had a plan that he was unaware of. Only time would tell as the milliseconds ticked past through their collision, and he waited for that familiar taste of blood to flood his mouth.

It was, at first fascinating, and then quickly irritating to watch the way Satori reacted to Lulu's attack. Her maneuver seemed more effective than anticipated as her hands came down on the sides of his head rather than in front of him, a more direct hit to the ears than intended. She was almost certain this would be deafening for anyone with enhanced hearing, but what she didn't account for at first was that with her so close, Satori didn't need to hear her. Instead, he clamped down on her freshly fixed arm while keeping his momentum. This meant several things to the poor girl caught in his chomping grasp.

Of course, this also meant that she had to react appropriately. With only milliseconds to consider the situation, she did the first thing that came naturally to her. She pushed forward, jumped with Satori's direction and, though with less force than he had the chance to build up, she carried herself with him to minimize the damage. If she'd pulled away, which would be most people's first reaction, she'd likely have a chunk of her arm. She didn't feel like doing that, so with her body now in the air with Satori, she locked herself into a different course of action. Pulling back with her right arm, and using her now caught left arm to brace for stability, she swung for a punch right at Satori's face, yelling out with a mix of excitement and irritation, "I JUST GOT THAT FIXED!"

She was aiming for his nose, though the odd angle and shifting momentum might have caused that to be slightly off. She intended to deprive her target of as many senses as possible, but with her arm already caught it was starting to seem like a futile strategy. She had studied a lot about anatomy, and knew that if Satori got rambunctious, he could likely sever a few vital blood vessels. Healing was impressive, but even Lulu somehow doubted that the Ryuutei could bring back the dead. If she could land her punch, at least, she might force Satori off of her and put some distance between them once more.

She surprised him-- most people when they suffered a bite, reeled back, and that only worsened the damage. But Lula seemed to understand how bad an idea that really was, and rolled with it as best she could. Minimizing the damage, and forcing a wild grin to form on his lips, at least as much as he could with a mouth full of her arm. His own grip didn't waver, and even as her fists smashed into the boys head repeatedly, forming bruises he didn't stop. Instead, he clamped down as hard as possible and attacked her in just as feral nature.

Her free arm was smashing into his skull, but he appeared remarkably sturdy, there was clearly damage being done but comparatively, it was minimal to what one would expect. On the other hand, he only had his mouth taken up, clamping down on the flesh to hold her limb. Satori though-- had no intention of releasing, not yet. Every time her own fist slammed into his skull, his own arms lashed against either side, more comparable to a beast mauling a human than two humans fighting.

Claws raked, and teeth sank into flesh, all the while taking the pummeling as bruises began to form. However, there was always a limit, and as the impacts continued to rain down on his body, Satori allowed a wide grin to manifest on his lips as he spotted it. Either by purpose or blind luck, a fist smashing forward in an attempt to hit his eye. Though he may fight like a beast, he wasn't so stupid as to happily take a blow to the eye. Releasing the girl, he kicked off from her body, launching himself away from her and landing on blood-tipped claws. Using them as a springboard to launch his moment backward in a flip, and skidding along the earth afterward in order to keep distance between them.

They both needed a moment, he was certain. He could feel the throbbing in his ears and head, but thankfully his hearing had returned to normal due to their little clash and the time spent in it. His jaw was a bit sore, and he had a few spots he could feel bruises forming, but overall he was doing just fine. Glancing up at the girl for a comparison, he tilted his head slightly as he flexed both his hands, a blood-drenched grin forming on his lips as his tongue lashed out to cleanse them.

"Still good to go?" Satori inquired simply, clearly unconcerned by the punishment that he had taken. He anticipated that the girl would have a similar reaction, but he wanted to ensure that he hadn't severed anything too important. If she was damaged too badly they would need to heal her again before continuing, not that he imagined that would be much of an issue. Still, it would be quite the shame for the girl to die when he had just begun taking a bit of a shine to her.

The battle had just begun, he couldn't wait to see just how far their little fight would go. Cracking his neck and rolling his shoulders the boy would lower his center of gravity, and prepare for the next step, pupils dilating in predatory hunger. The fight was on.

All through their brief clash, Lulu knew she was losing. She was down an arm and despite her best efforts Satori simply wouldn't let go soon enough. Every landed blow was a brief bit of hope dashed away as Satori returned in kind with each of his strikes. She needed to do something more, but in their freefall-like state, she was helpless to throw anything more than wild punches. It was almost purely by sheer luck that she managed to throw something Satori didn't seem keen on taking to the head, relinquishing her arm and giving her a moment to breathe. She landed, not quite gracefully, stumbling forward a bit before righting herself.

Now Lulako was standing with her re-damaged arm in hand, eyes scanning over the blurry details of Satori. She was bleeding pretty badly, even after having somewhat minimized the tearing from Satori's teeth, thanks to the added gashes from several well-placed claws. She certainly should have stopped there. Seen to her wounds, at least. Instead, after hearing Satori ask if she was still willing to keep going, she replied, "YOU TRIED TO EAT ME!" as if this was an entirely unexpected result of their bout. Of course, she didn't think Satori had intended to swallow her whole, but the blood dripping from his lips was still enough to support the exasperated claim. "Is that even allowed?" her voice dropped, becoming more level and calm as she considered it, flexing her own jaw a bit. No, she wasn't made for that, he was. Still, something to consider, but maybe not against this opponent in particular.

But despite her apparent confusion and considerable injuries, she didn't give off the intention of backing down. Instead, she quickly tore her shirt in a strategic fashion to craft a sling for her arm, allowing it to rest so that it wouldn't be so much in the way during the second round. "You have some interesting advantages... I think this is my fault for not giving the fight everything I have from the beginning. I might not be able to catch up now, with this injury." all through her little statement, she tried to maintain unbroken eye contact with Satori, fingers on her right hand flexing instinctively as she well and truly sized him up for what he was. An obstacle to be overcome, an opponent in mortal combat, a victim if he gave her any opportunities. She took three careful steps backward, putting some increased distance between them before nodding slowly, "I can't stop until I have to, and I won't stop because I don't want to, so please keep coming at me. I want more!" she kept her voice steady until the end, where it cracked just slightly from excitement. A smile was spreading on her face despite the great pain she must have been in, she was actually enjoying being torn to shreds.
