    Rubbing her hands together another flame would form between her hands. "So confident," she'd giggle and smirk a little, "ok, here we go, fire round two."

    The young cat shifter took aim, her hands raising, the flame sparking as she focused and released the blast. She was enjoying this but wanted to maintain focus, wanted to remain in control.

    This time the stream of fire was better aimed, she was getting better at keeping on target. "Fire is bit harder to control," she'd say as they continued, "but I'm getting the hang of it," she'd say confidently.

    Kon wasn't that great of a runner. Having weak muscles meant he wasn't that quick on the ground. That was made up with his agility and flexibility. He would miss the streams of fire by rolling on the ground or backflipping away. The latter was much harder on rough ground with branches all over the place.

    "Be careful! Don't want to—" Another flip. A stumble. The heat was too close and singed him. That would heal up quickly enough. —"burn anything!"

    "Don't worry," she'd say, slowing her barrage down a bit, "if anything catches fire I'll put it out with my ice."

    She'd lower hand, keeping one upnsjd focusing more on accuracy than power. "You healing ok?" she'd ask as the training session continued, "don't want you to get any bad burn scars from this."

    "I'm fine, Kon shouted back. "Burns are nothing to me." As long as they could be set out fast enough. And didn't cover his entire body. Something told him that being engulfed in flames couldn't be solved with a beam of ice aimed at his entire body.

    Shiro's focus on accuracy worked. He was burned once more by a stream missing his hand. This was difficult, only because of where they were. Kon would have loved to climb up a tree or hide behind a bush, then ambush Shiro. See how she'd deal with a sudden change of plans. Obviously, that wasn't going to work with fire.

    So Kon tried a different tactic. He wanted to make this fun for both of them, after all. He tried to circle around Shiro, closing their distance so she had to focus on the intensity of her heart and accuracy.

    Shiro was getting used to the feel of the fire, the heat it gave off, the way it emerged from her hands. She had a talent for magic, but element manipulation was something very different from her natural magics.

    The cat shifter chuckled a bit as Kon started to circle, closing the distance. "Yes let's make this interesting." With accuracy out of the way she'd focus on intensity, adjusting it up and down, adding variation to her blasts of flame.

    In the back of her mind she was a bit worried about hurting him, so she was doing her best to make sure the flames don't spread.

    Kon was confident in Shiro being invulnerable to her own fire and ice, so he wasn't concerned about her burning herself. And if she did, well, that was an important part of her power to learn. Even if it was painful.

    Noticing the heat worsening, Kon shortened his hair until he had a pixie cut. Then, he removed his tail and replaced his cat ears with those of a human. He was too close to turn his legs back to human, but he was able to take off the fur from his hands. For now, this would have to do.

    To dodge the fire, Kon skidded across the ground and behind Shiro, forcing her to take a sudden turn to get him. In the meantime, Kon tried to dart away from Shiro and widen the distance. He could tell he had some burns on his body from when Shiro intensified the feat. Perhaps getting close to fire wasn't the smartest of plans, especially with his lack of combat experience.

    She'd continue to release her fire, following Kon's movement as best she could. "You're a speedy cat," she'd say with a small chuckle, "tell me if you need a break though."

    The cat shifter would turn as fast as she could when Kon circled around her, which wasn't that fast. She wasn't particularly athletic, she was a witch not an direct fighter.

    She'd continue to release her fire at her friend, but then started to lower the heat, wanting to give Kon time to heal. "Everything patching up ok?"

    Kon appreciated the chance to heal. He hasn't sustained much damage, but it wasn't good for him to have too many burns on his body. "Just a few burns here and there. They're healing pretty quickly."

    After several more seconds of distancing himself from Shiro and circling around her, Kon felt like it was time to change things up. "Hey Shiro, mind stopping for a moment?"

    When she did, Kon would slow himself down to a walk. "I was thinking it'd be fun if I turned into my cat form. See how you do at aiming towards a smaller target. But only if you're interested. I'm mostly here to help you out with whatever you need to practice." And use that as a chance to test out his agileness when in danger.

    Nodding she'd shut her fire off, whipping some sweat from her forehead. "Well....this is one way of working up a sweat," she'd say witch a chuckle, "you want some ice to cool you off?"

    If Kon said yes she'd conjure some ice, using it to cool him off. She wanted to make sure he didn't get sick from the heat or anything.

    "I'm up for that," she'd say with a nod, "it'd be good for accuracy yeah." She'd stretch a bit, her tail swaying behind her. "Sure you'll be ok?" she'd ask, slightly worried, "a cat will burn faster than your human form."

    Kon nodded quickly, not hiding his desperation. He didn't have any heat resistance. He could heal from burns, but the intense heat left him sweaty and tired and sweaty. The state he was in was absolutely disgusting.

    He popped an ice cube in his mouth to suck on, then used the rest of the ice Shiro gave him to wipe down his neck and arms. "I really needed this. Thank you so much." The cold never felt so good before.

    "I'll still be able to heal, and it shouldn't be an issue if you aren't shooting large streams. If I'm set on fire, uh, you can ice me out? Maybe? Or you could use your ice... Actually, ice might be safer for a smaller target... in the woods... full of trees."
