[Oh, this brought back memories. It was almost like being back in the Soul Society with Ikkaku. Seemed like it was only the other day, really.

Please...teach me how to fight.

Only this time, he was the instructor. Rin's request had come as a bit of a surprise, and it'd be strange working with someone who didn't at least go through the Academy training, but hell. There was no 'right' way to teach fighting, after all. In a real battle, all that mattered was survival. He could teach her that much pretty damn well.

Renji waits outside Hisato as stated, sword already drawn. It should only be a few minutes before Rin arrives. Her enthusiasm was definitely a good first step. He's looking forward to this more than he has much of anything in a long time.]

[For once in her time in Kannagara, Rin considered herself lucky. She hadn't been certain of anything when she contacted Renji, and told herself not to expect too much. They did barely know each other, after all.

They barely knew each other -- and yet, there was something familiar about him; his demeanor, his way of talking. She liked it. Maybe that was what had drawn her to him, of all people. After all, you could say a lot of things about Kannagara, but among those who had been brought here from other worlds, there was no shortage of capable fighters, as far as Rin could judge. She did ponder maybe training with all of them at one point... but no, that wouldn't be effective at all. Better to learn one thing properly than a lot of things shoddily.

So she was going to learn swordfighting Abarai-style now. She hoped that was the right choice. Most certainly, she planned to give her best to make it so.

She arrived in the field Renji had chosen half an hour after they ended their conversation; she'd had to spent some time finding the place. But finally, she spotted someone, whom, with some squinting, she identified to have bright red hair worn in a topknot, and went the rest of the way at an easy jog. As she came closer, she saw he had his sword drawn already, and grabbed the hilt of her own that was hanging at her side. Still, she did not yet draw; instead, she came to a halt at a respectable distance from Renji and tried to catch her breath first.

When she was halfway back to normal, she bowed.]

Good day, Abarai-san. I apologize for the wait.

[Renji can't help chuckling when Rin arrives, panting and out of breath, and promptly bows at him. He'd bowed at Ikkaku when asking to be trained, too. And her earnestness was just a bit amusing. It was a little like Gau's, he thinks. (Where was that kid anyway? He hadn't seen him around in a while.)]

Hey, Rin.

[Spoken casually with a light raise of his free hand that tells her not to worry about the formalities. It's not that he isn't used to being bowed to either--as the lieutenant of Squad Six, he got quite a bit of it from lower seated and unseated officers.

Renji just doesn't care much about ranks or titles, or even think much about his own significance save for (often drunken) posturing with old eleventh division buddies.]


[He raises his sword and points it at her, signaling her to unsheathe her weapon.]

[Her eyes widen a little -- he wants to begin right away? He really isn't holding back at all. Well, all the better. Rin takes a few more deep breaths, stands up straight, and lifts the strap of her bag, which contains her sword, over her head.

With the other hand, she holds her sword, and once she's removed the bag's strap from herself, she draws it. Casting bag and sheath away, she gets into a fighting stance -- bending her knees just so and holding the sword out straight before her.

She gives Renji a curt nod.]

All right, let's begin. Give me all you've got.
