Lizz softly shut the front door of Kame House, making sure she didn't wake anyone sleeping inside. Swiftly stepping off of the porch, she saw Jaduko standing on the sandy beach of the island, he had his hands on his hips with a smile on his face, he looked directly at her.
"The tournament begins in 5 Days." He said, "We have to get you ready if you're gonna win that Dragon Ball."
The moonlight shined down onto Kame Island, the light glistening off of the water caused Jaduko's shadow to slowly creep along the ground towards where Lizz was standing. She moved out of the way as if afraid of it.
"Look Jaduko." She muttered. "I don't think 5 days is enough time for me t-" She was cut off by Jaduko lunging at her. With a yelp, she dove out of the way. Jaduko slowed down and his fist stopped right before hitting the side of the house.
"C'mon, you have to counter attack." He retorted with a sigh. "I'm counting on you to win this tournament." Lizz shakily stood up as a gust of wind blew past her face. Her long, red hair flew into her face, blocking her vision of Jaduko. Lifting her hand to comb her hair away, she felt Jaduko's foot kick her in the hip, she was sent flying across the ground, skidding down to the shore of the beach.
"I'm so sorry!" Jaduko replied as he rushed to her side. "I didn't mean to kick you so hard, you should do something about all that hair, it could get in the way." He instructed.
"Look who's talkin' Mr. Bedhead." She laughed. Wincing from the pain, she stood up and looked at Jaduko, who was about her height now that he was older.
"I get it." Lizz began. "You're so confident because you're strong, and you know nothing can stop you, is that it?"
Jaduko thought for a second and replied, "Nope." He said.
"What?" Lizz asked with an eyebrow raised.
"I said nope," Jaduko repeated, "I'm confident because I have a reason to fight. If you don't have a reason to fight, then what's the point in fighting?"
"I guess you're right.." Lizz replied, she looked at the ground and noticed Jaduko's shadow moving. Quickly looking up she saw Jaduko throw a punch, she lifted her arm and blocked with her forearm. Jaduko smiled at her reflexes, but quickly thrust his palm into her stomach. She went flying into the ocean.
Frozen in place, Jaduko blinked as he watched Lizz rise up to the top of the water, her hair and clothes soaked. The two sat and stared at each other for a moment until Jaduko dropped his pose. "We've got a long road ahead of us." He said.
Lifting her out of the water, he escorted her to the house for a fresh change of clothes.Continue Onto Chapter 13: http://readuniverse93online.forumotion.com/t83-vol-2-chapter-13-the-world-tournament
