Continued from Chapter 7
A few months after Seihu beat that Rahkshi, a war was going on in Metru Nui or better yet the Matoran universe.
“Things seem way more hostile now than they used to be. There’s something about this air that breeds contention, contention that I never even felt when fighting the Rahkshi of Chain Lightning“, worried Seihu.
This was the Toa/Dark Hunter war.
Seihu knew that the time to train the most was now.
He was out in a secluded area in Ga-Metru where he was practicing his forms. Seihu’s actions were quick and powerful. A barrage of kicks, punches, strikes, and blocks were part of his moves and put together in such a rhythm that it had a smooth but intimidating motion, but with power and grace.
“Hey look, some weird Matoran is trying to learn how to fight” observed a black, lime and red Toa-sized figure.
“Isn’t that hilarious? Let’s show him what fighting is all about!” said a dark blue, black and dark red Toa-sized figure with a mischievous grin.
“But it’s just a Matoran, why waste our lives on getting Matoran?” asked the white, lime and red figure.
“Matoran play a vital part in this universe, if we can destroy one. We can get them all”, said the darker figure. “Besides we need him for a special purpose.”
The dark colored member came up and introduced in a quasi-friendly voice, “Hey Matoran! I am Toa Burosa”. Burosa pointing to the black, lime, and red figure,” And my friend here is Toa Sterok”. “We have seen you in action and think you are really good. We are looking for a sparring partner. Are you up for some sparring with us ‘Toa’?”
“Huh, you don’t look like any Toa I’ve ever met or read about” Seihu examined.
That is because they were anything but Toa, by code, morals and appearance.
“That’s because we have been on other missions, and in some of those missions we were overpowered and captured by some of the Rahkshi and experimented on by Makuta himself” said Burosa.
“I’m sorry to hear that”, Seihu sympathized.
“It’s okay. Anyways are you up for it?” challenged Burosa.
“If that’s what you want then so be it,” said Seihu.
Burosa and Sterok looked at each other with a smile and lunged at Seihu. Seihu dodged and got fighting ready.
They sparred together and Seihu impressively held his own against them. The “sparring session” ended with both those figures bruised and battered on the ground with Seihu still standing with only two hits on him.
“This Matoran beat us. That was not what we planned”, muttered Sterok.
“It’s time for plan B”, Burosa said.
They then gave Seihu an offer that he can’t refuse.
“You are very good. I believe that you can be as great as the Toa one day” affirmed Burosa. “We run a Toa training program and we want you to be a part of it.”
“Yeah, Yeah, really good” Sterok nodded with an eager giggle.
The Burosa smacked Sterok on the back of his head.
“If you join us, you can beat any foe that tries to destroy your Matoran friends, and be a hero” Burosa propositioned. “But you have to survive some tests first”
“I’ll think about it. Give me a day” said Seihu.
“Okay a day, just don’t let us know too late” urged Burosa.
