It was a warm, sunny day in the western region of Planet Earth and Gira was taking advantage of the nice weather. For the first time in months, she found herself at her old training grounds, fifty miles off of West Capitol. The land here was scarred with countless training sessions and spars with friends and rivals, some of which she hadn't seen in a long time. The nearby forest had large swaths of trees that were ripped out of the ground or nearly so, looking like the point of a nuclear impact. Gira herself was in a part of the grounds that wasn't quite as scarred. She was dressed in her weighted Turtle School gi, seated on the soft grass, the wind flowing through her hair as she meditated, preparing herself for a day of training.
She had spent a couple of days in relaxation, but now she was ready to redouble her efforts and train her heart out. There was a tournament coming up, and she was determined to win. A lot of her friends were participating as well, and she definitely wanted to show them what she learned. Oh yes, she definitely wouldn't be outdone. After an hour or two of meditation, Gira finally found her center. Getting up from her seated position, the girl opened her eyes and let out a long, even exhale. A smile found its way to her face soon after. With a powerful cry, Gira lashed out with her right foot, then her left, then threw several quick punches at the area in front of her. This went on for a few minutes until Gira felt she had warmed up effectively.
The teen let out an exasperated sigh. She hated training alone. Shadowboxing could only help so much. She thought about calling Pota or another friend over to train, but eventually decided against it. She figured it would be far too last minute. The best thing she could hope is that someone willing to train would happen along.
