As the fight started Kiana uses immediately one of her skills that she hadn't shown to Kiann yet because it is a bit overpowered and has prerequisites to surroundings. This time it is just met the requirements which is a place with many plants and trees, in this forest, there is so many of it.
After the domain was activated Kiana good make use of it as she cast one of her skills empowered by the domain. Although she can use a more powerful [thorn bind] she chose not to. Thorn bind is indeed better than vine bind but it can also injure someone because of the sharp thorn.
'What an amazing skills' Kiann thought as he notice that when Kiana cast her plant domain, the plant and trees in the surrounding seemed alive, and Kiana could control them whenever she likes.
Kiann and Lily saw the approaching vine nearby, trying to bind them but with Lily's reflex, she immediately dodges it as she jumps high and strode toward Kiana.
Kiann can't react in time. Unlike their previous fight. Kiana never uses her domain that's why her vine bind now is much faster than before. Kiann never expected it and was a bit careless.
He tried to dodge it even though he thinks it is a bit too late and the vine is so close to him. He tried to jump forward for momentum.
He was a bit shocked by his own jump. He himself didn't even know that he can jump this high and fast compared to his previous self. He also wondered how can he notice that fast vine although a bit late but still he notice it faster than his previous self could.
Is this one of the innate ability of Lily that was shared to me? Cat's eyes and cat's relex? Kiann thought inwardly after he successfully dodged that vine.
"I didn't know that you had such powerful skills up your sleeves Kiana"
"Same to you brother, I didn't think you're that fast!" She said in a rush tone as she controlled the vine to attack the nearing Lily, her fairy controlled her vine to attack Kiann to stall him and the 2 tailed fox engage Lily in close combat.
Kiann can't do anything but dodge continuously and tried his best to use a minimal movement to preserve his stamina as he dodge and cut every vine that's coming his way. Thanks to his cat's eyes and cat's reflex that he survived for that long in this kind of fast but arduous fight.
Kiana and the fairy's controlled over the vine is superb that even the weaker fox can fight almost evenly with Lily although the fox is weaker compared to Lily because she is a transcendent beast.
"I'm going to get serious now brother! [Water bullet!!]" Kiana cast the water bullet toward Lily who's fighting the beaten fox and dodging the vine continuously while attacking it sometimes.
Her fairy also started to use water spells and cast the same skill to Kiann.
Lily and Kiann are in a dire situation because of the gap of level between them, as they can't fight back at all.
However, at that moment, Lily's eyes become golden as her aura change completely and the slightly down ears of hers stood up completely. Her rank didn't increase but everyone who saw this knew that she becomes stronger, way stronger than before.
Lily moves extremely fast, punching the fox with extreme speed but light strength as to not injure it. She didn't want to disobey Kiann at all. After knocking down the cute little fox, she cut down every vine coming on her way and she was about to attack Kiana when she accidentally saw Kiann who's struggling hard to dodge the fairy's attack and can't fight back at all as his stamina kept decreasing.
She then changes her direction to Kiann and save him but Kiana won't let her go. Even though Kiana don't also want to see his brother like that. This is a spar and struggle is inevitable.
Being blocked by Kiana's skills and stopping her from helping her master infuriated Lily as she looked at Kiana angrily and she choose to defeat her first and help her master.
Kiana fought Lily while Kiann fought the fairy one-sidedly.
The fairy cast more spells to Kiann and controlled more vines from which Kiann can't dodge in time and he was knocked away by the water bullet and the vine's slap as his stamina is in all-time low and he struggled to stand up but cannot.
Lily and Kiana fought at a melee distance now. With Lily's speed, she immediately caught up with her so the melee fight occurred. And because Kiana was only adept at a long-range fight and not the short one she was fighting with disadvantaged and their previous bout almost spent her entire spirit energy.
Their fight is now one-sided fight and Lily beated Kiana as she's now in a weakened state. Lily was about to deliver the knocking blow when she notice her master is now beaten and knocked down by the fairy and the fairy notice them too as both spirits look at each other angrily with fiery eyes that could even melt a stone.
Both of them rush forward toward each other and was almost going to fight when a shout came.
Kiann and Kiana shouted simultaneously and both spirits stop then moved toward their own master, ignoring each other as they passed by.
"Kiana, you and you're spirit is so strong that I cannot fight back at all and let Lily take all the shots. It's shameful as a big brother of yours." Kiann said seriously as he praised her little sister and her spirit.
"You too brother! You just have your summoned spirit recently and you can already fight me fair and square when I already practice with my spirit for 3 whole years."
"It can be credited to Lily alone. I did nothing at all. let's go home and take a bath." After he said that. He carried his little sister on his back and she gladly accepts it as she sniffs her brother's sweaty smell. Both unsummon their spirits and walk toward home and took a bath but this time he didn't take a bath with her and let his little sister bath alone which made her a little sad and she thinks that he had change this time.
6 days passed.
Both siblings fought, train, rest and eat during the day of this 6 days.
However, Kiann also fought during the night but with a different opponent. After resting some time in the afternoon and eating their dinner. Kiann and Karina always fight at night sneakily the moment Kiana sleep and to make sure she's asleep, Kiann and Karina visited her room to make sure of it before sneaking.
This blissful life of Kiann makes him feel delighted and just wanted to let it continue forever but a weak person doesn't have the right to become a blissful person. And he knows that he has to become strong first before he can truly enjoy a blissful life without interruption of a stronger entity. And his first step to becoming strong will start tomorrow and that made him sad for a bit, because this will also end his blissful days at home.
"We won't practice today Kiana and we'll just take a rest for today and have bonding in this house before leaving in this place," Kiann said this as he plans to rent a place in a city where his mother would stay so both siblings could visit her whenever they could and Kiann insisted it not just because he wanted her nearby so he can have a fight with her anytime but also because he wouldn't feel safe if she is too far away from them and also his life will feel a bit lonely along with his sister.
The family of three prepared a bunch of food and eat together inside the house. They also summoned their spirits to have fun with them and enjoy the food and the most excited one was Lily of course.
A bit coincidental, Lily and Kiana also like the same kind of food and both fight for who will be the one eating it and they started bickering nonstop which made their small family laugh happily and even the spirits seemed to laugh at the two.
While the two bickers nonstop and it may take for a while for them to eventually stop. Kiann tapped Karina's thigh under the table and gesturing her something and he goes to the bathroom and not long after that Karina also followed along and no one notice that as the other spirits just eat while the two just continue bickering.
The two in the bathroom also started eating their delicacy they prepared to each other and make sure to make it fast to come back early. Both Kiann and Karina got their fill with a satisfied expression as both make sure to fill each other's mouth with their wild juices. They come out of the bathroom together with a wide smile and satisfied expression on their faces.
The two act like usual and have fun along with the others. After the small food party, they prepared the things they would bring along with them on their long journey.
