I heard the sword clash as I fought with my master, Master Shing, sparks flew everywhere blinding me temporarily. I thrashed out with my sword with, the vipers tongue and my master stumbled backwards, I then tried the triple dragons fire, he blocked me strongly, forcing me back, then attacked with a double horses kick, I then did the most advanced move I knew it was a block and an attack, Master Shing lunged at me with a quadruple ice freeze, I concentrated very hard and then did a block/attack, the dragons breath, master Shing fell.
"Long-jinjah!" Master Shing spat in my face, "YOUR TURN! LONG-JINJAH!" I could feel my blood turning cold, a shiver went up my spine "Yes, Master Shing!" I croaked. I pulled my swords out of the two sheaves on my back. He beckoned me to the center of the arena, I heard the start bell ring out three times, time slowed down. I saw my Master Shing hurl towards me like a speeding bullet. I dodged his attack,sending him flying across the arena, he got up and I saw his face, he was snorting like an angry bull, blood dripped down his lip. He came in with another attack, I blocked it, forcing him to stumble backwards then I did the most unexpected thing, I lunged at him he only just blocked it, but he tripped over I raced towards him my sword poised at his throat. I saw my master on the ground before me, bleeding. I withdrew my swords and let them fall threw my hands.
I ran home I could see the wolf dragon bounding after me celebrating my success. I entered my masters house, “Master Lei?” I panted. “Master Lei, I am home!”. I heard footsteps pad along the street towards the house, I heard the door creak open, but I couldn’t turn around. “Did you forget something?” the figure behind me said, I was amazed it was Master Lei. “Yes, Master Lei, I did sir!” I looked down in shame. He handed me my swords and I put them in their rightful position. “You did very well!” my master praised, then he added “For a girl!”. I looked up knowing he wasn’t angry. I smiled and he returned it. “Bo will help you dress, she knows!” my master told me. I walked into the bathing room greeting Bing Quing along the way, she was head servant. But perhaps not the happiest, she scowled at me.
I walked into find Bo, “Bo,” I bowed deeply, “Can you please fill the bath?” She poured boiling water into the tub. “Thank you Bo!” She bowed to me, “You're Welcome Longta!” I bowed in return. She left the room, looking at the floor. I stepped in the boiling bath, it burned. I had been so cold outside I could see my own breath frozen in the air, the ice dragon had visited our small town.
