The proceeding days that followed Tenchi continued to train with Chloe as Michael watched while Carrie remained in her room only coming out when it was time to eat.  In the meantime Arsenal continued to live in the forest living off the land and hunting animals either for resources (weapons or traps) or food even though he is a machine.  One day Arsenal looked up at the mountains behind Tenchi and Ryoko’s place and he gave an agreeable grunt before leaving his encampment and went downstream past Ryoko’s house and he swam underwater for five to six miles before proceeding back and repeated this for the next two days for hours on end and did them in stealth mode.  During his time living in the wilderness his mechanical body ached for hydraulic fluid and oil but he never went back to the cave and as a result his joints ached and he had a hard time moving his body but as he kept swimming and living in the forest either hunting or practicing his stealth techniques he fought against the increasing pain till he somehow does not fell any pain all over his body anymore.  He went back to his cave (late at night) and he searched a pile of metal scrap till he found a long piece of metal that seemed to be in a form of a blade and he took it and disappeared back into the woods.  When he got back to his camp he used another metal scrap shard to cut into a large bone that was part of a large bear’s leg till it was big enough to attach the other metal scrap piece he found in the cave and he swung the large bone till the blade appeared and Arsenal smirked and grunted with satisfaction.  Arsenal returned to camp and packed up all the meat he could carry like fur for cold weather, his club, fangs and sharp teeth he collected from vicious animals and began climbing his way up to the mountains.  The first leg of the journey was easy but when he got closer to the middle of the mountains he began to actually climb where normal people would use safety harnesses.  A couple of times he stumbled or slipped but when he reached the top of the highest mountain he just stood there and scanned the horizon.


    At Ryoko’s home she and Michael watched as Arsenal stood at the top and then disappeared on the other side.  Ryoko said, “Do you think he’s ever coming back?”, Michael replied, “I’m sure he will, but it will be a while,” In the training room Chloe and Tenchi prepared to fight and Chloe said, “So you think you are ready?”, Tenchi replied, “I am,” and Chloe suddenly threw a punch meant for Tenchi’s throat but Tenchi dodged it and when they punched and kicked each other Tenchi moved faster than her (to Chloe’s surprise).  Chloe threw a roundhouse kick but Tenchi dodged it and came around and kicked her across the face and before Tenchi could stop himself he punched her directly on the spine and she fell flat on the mat.  Tenchi ran to her side and said, “Chloe are you okay?” Chloe replied (holding back the pain), “You are good, but I can’t get up.” Tenchi ran and called out for Michael and Ryoko.
