"Oh man those Generals were too intense," Jack said as he reached for the sky stretching and arching his back slightly. "I hope they aren't like this all the time. I need my lazy time to watch the sun go down and meditate."

Jack walks for a bit kicking rocks along with picking some up and tossing some into the ocean. After walking a good ways Jack found a spot he could be proud. A small area of rocks with a flat rock in the middle them all. Jack's eyes sparkled as he took off his hooded cloak and blouse. When he finished, Jack hopped from rock to rock till he reached his target.

Landing on his hands and feet like a frog, Jack felt the ocean breeze on his face and chest. He quickly sat down to finalize claiming his soon to be new secret spot where he could relax and meditate in peace while listens to the ocean crash on the rocks.

Closing his eyes and sitting criss-cross, Jack immediately shut out the world around him.Everything goes black except for his body. In his mind he begins to spin his internal energy into a ball and holding it in place within his body. Jack is in his trance. Balancing his magic and ki energy in place to conserve and strengthen for future use.

The water was refreshing, and the sea was calm, totally calm. No strong winds that could generate rough waves. She let her body idly drift, gently being rock by the waves. Floating in the water without a care in the world.

Rianne had came earlier in her secluded swimming spot, a small inlet not far from port. One of her small secret sanctuaries in Antar. And her fave swimming spot too, far from prying eyes.

It was secluded enough that she'd usually leave her cloak, and towel partially hidden near the rock formations. Its fine to let down her guard once in a while, after all none had yet intruded upon her swimming time.

Note:
Rianne just floating in the water.

Jack, still meditating at the time, hears an odd sound that shouldn't be heard when one finds a quiet spot with specific sounds he listens to help keep his concentration. He hears a small floosh followed by a small splash each in a slow pace rhythm much like someone floating. Couldn't tell how far off but they are somewhat close.

"YOU THERE," Jack shouted without opening one eye. "LEAVE THIS PLACE AT ONCE! I DISCOVERED THIS PLACE FIRST AND WILL NOT SURRENDER THIS SPOT! BE ADVISED THAT IF YOU DO NOT LEAVE MY HEARING RANGE YOU WILL BE REMOVED BY FORCE!"

Jack doesn't stir from his spot while he mentally puts himself back in his trance. Listening for any other sounds that might indicate a person leaving.

What Rianne loves about floating and drifting in the waves, is that her ears were submerged in the water. All she could hear was the water around her. It really helps one tune out of the surrounding noise. The push and pull of the waves reminds her of the gentle rocking of a familiar face during bed time. The sea as her cradle and the sound of the waves as her lullaby. Rianne could stay like this for hours if nature and her body permits.

Her eyes remained closed avoiding the warm gaze of the sun. Wondering have she float far of shore? Or just closed by, she can't feel anything beneath her yet. But she could care less for now, Rianne wants to soak up all the peace and relaxation, the sea could provide her.

After all once she's back on land, her life as a trainee will resume again. The noise of the turbulent times of Altrus will once again engulf her. The sounds of swords clashings, bodies slamming against each other, scream and yells are noises she has gotten used to while being in Antar and part of the Training Order. But all of those noises will have to wait.

She wasn't that long since she last resurfaced, maybe 10-15mins? Rianne was relax she can't feel the flow of time. Her face remained baking under the sun. Her skin was still moist which, indicates she still has a few more minutes before she should dive and swim around again. Rianne was in her own little word. Engulf in a small bliss period, she didn't realize the man threatening her from the shore.

Jack, being annoyed by the sound still on going sound of someone swimming, leapt eight feet into the air from the rock he was sitting on. After he found the sound he dove head first toward the target area. Jack opened his eyes and grinned from ear to ear as his heart raced, he felt the wind against his face that ruffled his cherry red hair.

During his descent Jack suddenly noticed a girl in the water is his target. "Oh crap," Jack muttered and removed his grin. During this time Jack opened his arms. Jack crashed into the water as well as the small floating girl. As he did this he grabbed her by waist using his left forearm and bicep, twisted his body upward, and swam toward the surface with the small girl in tow.

With a sudden gasp, Jack had arrived back at the surface of the water. Jack knew he was in trouble but all he could do was ask her, "Are you ok?"

It was too sudden. Rianne could only gasp when something made a huge splash near her, before she felt it grabbed her waist, then she was suddenly dragged down to the waters depths.

"What!?!" Rianne's eyes fluttered opened, her yelp in protest was drowned by the water. She could see the stream of air bubbles left by her descent, which made her eyes widen. Wahh?!?

Rianne was still in a daze, after being abruptly and forcefully pulled back to reality and quite literally up to the surface of water. Which of course made her gasp again for air. Coughing out the water that had entered her mouth, and trying to blink out the saline water that dampened her eyes, Rianne's daze was broken when she heard a man's voice asking.
Jack wrote:"Are you ok?"
The sudden destruction of her peace and the feeling of nearly drowning, brought up fragments of a childhood memory, made her feel rather snarky. Still reeling from the events that caught her off guard Rianne answered crossedly with her heavy breathing "I... almost felt... I'll drown... for what you did... But I'm fine..."

Jack, being the gentleman he thinks he is, swims the young lady back to shore. He gently lays her down in the sand and waits for her to catch her breath. Jack then scratches his wet head of hair. "Im so sorry," Jack says standing up. "I was being rude and pig headed. I thought I could relax here and meditate after my first meeting with the training generals here."

Jack examines the girl, smiles, then asks trying to holding laughter, "Why are you out here in your underwear swimming the ocean?"

Rianne just remained quiet and still as she felt the man began swimming to shore bringing her in tow, and even as he laid her down on the shore . As she was busy trying to calm her breathing. She sat up straight when her breathing had calmed down, and tried to glare at the man in front of her for ruining her relaxation time. But failed to as the man began to apologize.

He's one of the new trainees? Rianne thought as she observed the man. Understanding the sentiment of the red head in front of her. I guess I can let it slide this time. "I see. It's was a misunderstanding, and no harm intended." Rianne said to the man as she gave him a smile "I'll take your apology." Her cheeks began to flush to the red head's last question. Did he had to mention 'underwear'?

It was a common practice to be bare when swimming, hence most people swim privately, especially women. But not Rianne, she had been wearing underwear when swimming since she could remember. It was her grandmother Ines' way of solving young Rianne's fondness of the water. It saved Ines a lot of trouble teaching the small child to wear her underwear when swimming, than letting the child ruin her dresses by being drenched from swimming, or being scolded by Irina for being bare, especially out in the water. Calm down Ria, you're still covered! There's nothing to be ashamed of anyway! You aren't naked!

"Well...Training can be hectic, so the small window of relaxing time is very much welcomed." Rianne scratched the back of her head "I came here to my usual spot to relax. As swimming helps me relax and at the same time a good work out for the legs." Standing up she began dusting off the sand on her body and her hands. "Well this is an awkward meeting." Rianne looked up to the man and offered a smile and her hand to shake "But nice meeting you. And also you can call me Rianne, and you are?"

Jack reaches out and grabs her hand gently. "My name is Jack," Jack smiles. "Nice to meet a fellow trainee." Jack lets go of the small girls hand and to pick up his blouse and hooded cloak. Tossing the medium sized cloak to the girl Jack ,putting on his blouse, asks "Where are you from and why did you choose to join up?"
Jack then remembers how intense the aura around the generals were. Made him a little angry at how powerless he felt at that time when first meeting them, but seeing this small girl and how shes so calm made him think that he shouldn't be intimidated by those guys and just find a good place to train and maybe a sparring partner.
Jack looks over to the girl.

Rianne was a little bewildered when Jack threw her his cloak. And was opted to put it on, mimicking the owner. But paused at the idea, remembering she still has her cloak somewhere. Tilting her head to decide, whether to put on the cloak or not, she heard Jack questioning her of her origin.

"I'm originally from Vetanom. But I've lived in Pomah long before the demons arrived." Rianne answered. Even though she had lived spent more than half her years in Pomah, to her Vetanom was her birthplace and her home. "As for joining, I mainly want to go back to Eastern Altrus. To help retake and defend my homelands, as well as look for my brother there."

Realizing she was still in her undergarments, while conversing, she mentally berated herself. Ria, you aren't talking to your brothers. Just burrow the cloak and return it later! She quickly draped over the cloak on her body, when she noticed Jack was looking over her.

"How about you Mr. Jack?" She asked looking up to him. Rianne was starting to be a little curious of the new trainee. "Where are you from, and what made you join the Training Order?"

Having spent a month in Antar, Rianne's subconscious wariness when it comes to red heads had began dissipating. She internally smiled thinking, He seems less worrisome than the other new trainees. Maybe it won't be that bad getting to know Jack, despite him being a red head too.
