    " I'm going too, and this shouldn't take long not counting any possible unknown variables that might just randomly pop up ," Praxat said.

    Althena who's skin has turn back to it's usual Platinum color after thinking about how much she misses her children . Gets into the Vear stance and focus directly on Praxat , " Praxat before you go there's something I want to show you it's how to throw a proper punch in Mahtoesa Hetto no Hwe-Atkam!" Althena said.


    " Sensei Althena I already know how to throw a punch, and there's really not much to it, Aoem is just like any other fighting style right? There's only so many ways you can throw a punch," Praxat said.


    "Just watch and learn I will show you how to strike properly in Aoem ." Althena does a normal punch , " This is how you currently throw a punch. It's not bad not bad per se but you can get more force and speed from your punches if you did this!" Althena said.


    Althena reels her arm back and then compresses it like a spring to the point where it looks like it's collapsing in on itself. Althena then snaps her arm forward and it comes out like a rocket. Delivering a punch that is much greater in force and speed than her previous strike creating a wind tunnel like effect with a shockwave," That is how you properly throw a punch in Aoem, Praxat," Althena said.

    " the initial start up seems kind of slow, " Praxat said.

    " It's not slow at all, I just slowed the first part down so that you could see exactly how it's done. This way of striking including the first part is actually quite a lot faster and more powerful than how you normally strike Praxat," Althena said.


    " Okay so I'll have to do is this right?" Praxat said as she pulls back her right arm and does what Althena did. Then launches her right arm like a rocket and is shock by the speed and force of her punch, " Wow I never throw a punch with that much force and speed with out Ki before . Shit I didn't even know I could do that , Still the initial setup is kind of slow.


    " It is only slow because you aren't used to throwing a punch that way . The more you practice on it , The faster the wind up will be to the point where it will look like you are just throwing a standard punch . Meagan I'm staying here and I think you should too , Since you are with child. Also when you child is born I will be glad to sing that lullaby you previously heard me singing to them," Althena said.

From a single point, with a gesture he could go anywhere in an instant.

    How ironic that the Doctor had shackled him so.

    Yet the difference between him and the elemental Pyrus was in the additional matter he carried with him. Where one Earth's champion simply sought to return home, there was some matter the Wizard held yet unspoken.

    "If you could strike back at the Doctor, I imagine you would have," he said. It would be easy enough to cross the space, if Pike could have returned; even simpler to escape if his method could avail him.

    Yet only now was he able to move freely.

    "He promised you spells for a reason, I suppose soon enough we shall see why," he shrugged. "But let me be clear. You're not guiding swarms of artificial drones today."

    Like the others, he supposed the Namekian Wizard would fight for his way home, no matter the cost. Still, Ochazuke tilt his head to the side in a soft gesture to those gathered near the portal.

    "Their lives are not expendable."
    Pike nods.

    ďI understand.Ē

    He heads towards the RoSaT and enters the open door.

    "It's because I do know," He answered, "A second pair of eyes endlessly watching me, waiting for the moment I show an ounce of weakness before seizing control. Each time, I can feel my sense of self disappearing."

    At first, the spirit required his permission... or maybe that was to lull him into a false sense of security, to make him believe that Rex was his ally.

    "I was taught how to be strong in mind and body, but I never thought I would have to fight for my soul."

    Regaining control upon the end of their battle with Luop and Koolard had left him a broken mess, briefly untethered to reality as the erosion of his spirit had left him with an unfathomable feeling of hollowness that had frightened him.

    "...It's a scary feeling, but I can't sit back and let it consume me. That is why I want to pick up where Penhuoqi left off."

    Perhaps the boy was being desperate, having only recently swept up the broken pieces of his former dream and now faced with the very real possibility that his soul could be corrupted, but he knew just how powerful could be when fighting for a cause, any cause.
    Nothing comes without sacrifice; those who walked the martial path knew that with a particular intimacy. Yet no matter what strides made, crossing one plateau made one all too aware of the limitations, the myriad frailties inherent to humanity seemed to pronounce themselves time and again.

    Among their present company, certainly, for power did not come for them as a matter of course, or some latent epiphany to consider. Even before it could be written, men saw in slavering jaws and spread wings a simultaneous fear and envy, loathing at the set distance between humanity and the inherent plateau of the wild. So aware of these of weakness, there would be no telling what the fear of vulnerability would drive one to exchange for power.

    "Power, technique, even form, without the quality of character to express it, it is all mere imitation." Standing beside the young man, he looked down upon the old, fraying image upon the desktop. "Yet it is the hope that through the body and mind one might cultivate the spirit."

    But the price for understanding is thorough examination. That is possible only through constant vigilance. To gain a measure of power is a much more tangible matter, and to some it is only the end result that matters.

    "You already know well what it means to fight for your soul," Ochazuke said, "Standing before Simon Battersea, exposed to the fullness of his living death, you made both him and the demon Banefire retreat. Not your master. And certainly not this parasite."

    Even faced with this trial within, even haven spoken to his fear, as ever the boy's stubborn willfulness stood firm. So that's what this is about. You wanted to rebuild. Despite this grim matter, he'd begun to understand his fear. If that is the matter you wished to stake your very life upon...

    "That is something that cannot be snuffed out. To find your way, that alone is something worth fighting for." Ochazuke rest a firm, heavy hand upon his shoulder. "The difference between then and now is that Penhuoqi stood alone."

    As good as his word, Ochazuke shadowed him as they entered the divergence. No longer an alternate Earth, but another planet entirely, there was some comfort to be had in that the alienation would likely remain singular. No uncanny matters pronounced in their many differences as they would from his homeworld. It left him to his task, then, of monitoring the situation as they escort their temporary guest home.

    To reach that which you desire most, what would you be willing to do? If the Guardian Evangeline's graces saw him as worthy of her charity, perhaps like the other forceful recruits to the Doctor's ranks, Pike's talents had merely been twist from their nature into a horrid weapon, honed and made lethal by desperation.

    Passing through the rift in time-space, when it settled, he reached out with Kyokushin Keihatsu, establishing his meditational field of sense-awareness immediately passing through his local company and weaving gradually through the environment.

    " Even though it's just a prototype. This Quantum Ambient Toxin Collector that Qaztoh made for me should come in handy. As it should allow me to use my poison generation more efficiently. To bad Dash isn't going because I really want to try out a water and electricity combo move I thought of with her called Electro-Hurricane ," Praxat said as she walks through the open door. Praxat walks though the environment and tunes her hearing to focus on infrasonic frequencies , " So this is Namek huh, well at lest a alternate Namek , and it kind of reminds me of home expect less swampy," Praxat said.

    As the group prepares to set out on their next temporal excursion, "Charco" feels a pair of eyes on his back. That inching feeling of being observed from the shadows, a feeling of intense, directed bloodlust washing over his exposed back.

    A bush shakes, a flash of movement imperceptible to all but those paying the closest attention, like the shadow of a cloud passing swiftly overhead.

    Something was stalking him.

    Maiz was going to flip her lid when she saw that Sarada that finally transformed. She couldn't wait to see the proud look on her face. ...She couldn't wait to see her period. It had been over a week since she had been home, and slightly longer since she had seen anyone for longer than a few minutes. Maybe I'll head home before the final mission and brief everyone on what's been going on so far. I would just stay, but they'll need me to fight Ishtar's alternate.

    Briefing, and taking a nap. It was going to feel so good sleeping in her own bed again. Well, sleeping period, honestly.

    "As for you... you definitely feel stronger. And you feel more harmonized, if that makes any sense. Of course, there's only one way to find out for sure how strong you've gotten."
    Ishtar flashed another smile, when Sarada expressed again her excitement and desire for training; before easing back into the tub to consider her latter comment.

    ... there's only one way to find out for sure how strong you've gotten.

    Which was true enough.

    Though at the same time, her 'change' had happened only a few short moments before the arrival of Glacia, and if the measure was combat, it had not gone well. A hole punched in my side, a deep gash across my back ... Whatever power she had recovered from having her Hakai -- and by extension her Ki, as intertwined as the two were -- returned; seemed not to influence much.

    ... Of course, she had not used it.

    So with a sigh, Ishtar responded. "I suppose so. Yet I am not liable to find it out anytime soon as it is not as if I can simply test it ... too dangerous now, I should think." Which made this more of a slap in the face, really. As now that the Hakai was free, there was no knowing truly how it would react, or change, what she'd managed to learn up til this point without -- as far as her utilizing the full extent of it, consciously -- Hakai.

    "Setting all of my issues aside for now, however ..." Ishtar said then, pressing up against Sarada. "I still have you at least. Which makes everything else seem less bleak, and more bearable."

    Stepping through the door to see the active room once more, Zaofan lets his presence known. "Hello friends. My apologies for the absence but, where would you need me?"

    Something was stalking him.
    Highly tuned senses allowed him to take heed that something, someone was observing him. The thought alone made him smile, as he could only imagine someone so foolish as to try and out-hunt the Strongest. For their bravery, he would play along, as he chose not to confront them. Instead, "Charco" made his way toward the portal, all the while keeping an ear out for his would-be prey.

    To those going through the RoSaT:



    A peaceful scene greets them. A gentle breeze of fresh air greets their senses, and a level of serenity fills their souls.

    Planet Namek was a gentle place. Calming. Serene.

    Pike laughs softly, kneels down, and drops his head down, offering a prayer of thanks.

    “I’m home. Finally home.”

    He raises into the air and gestures for them to follow, aiming towards a large village near by.

    " Yeah this is a really nice planet you have here Pike. I just love this scenery ," Praxat said as she follows Pike while keeping her hearing tune to infrasonic frequencies , but also making sure the tune out the sounds of the others heart beats.

    Past the parting of the veil between space-time, Ochazuke braced himself for all manner of strange things beyond the portal. Yet poised to stand against the rigours of the harsh unknown, the whispering breeze slipped through his guard entirely.

    Stretching end to end, the rolling sea reflected a verdant sky above, the sight dotted by islands. A dull, golden light seemed to glow from all sides at once, as if the planet ceased to turn from its sun, suspended in its own section of time.

    As Pike's formidable stature knelt in relief, Ochazuke stood nearby, heels sunk in the spongy blue-green turf beneath a tree's stem-shaped shadow.

    "Go, then. Don't keep them waiting. I'll follow shortly."

    Your Namek is different than the one of our universe, he mused. Perhaps it was much the same for Slak when he reached Earth. Surveying the length of the planet within his field of sense-awareness, Ochazuke reached into the spiritual matters of the place with Muhen Seikai Keihatsu. Resonating from the world itself, he searched for a more complete picture than what was upon the surface.

    "Incredible...!" Zaofan exclaims right after passing through the gateway. Such sights should be old business to him by now but with his curiosity always getting the best of him, he can't help but take in a deep breath of the rich, foreign air. "Of all the worlds these adventures have taken me to, there's something so ... fresh... about being some place else!"

    Zaofan takes a leisurely hover while following Pike. "I could see why you like it here. It'd be nice to retire on this world one day. Tell me, what's the food like here?"

    Stepping through the portal, Cyanna went slightly wide eyed at the sight. The planet was quite beautiful and she wondered if a planet like this existed in her timeline. She walked towards Pike, and as she did she listened carefully to the word around her as well as to the others in her group. There were so many questions she wanted to ask, but she held off, waiting for the right time.

    Taking flight, she follows their host to his village. She was actually glad that this was going to be a peaceful trip.
