Yuuka walked casually through the halls of beacon, headed for the extensive training arena, giving a few smiles and greetings to teachers that had taught her during her time at beacon. While she wasn't well known by themed to never really caring about much aside from studying and fighting, they probably remembered her as one of their best students. Noticing her weapon and direction, they assumed she was going to make use of the practice facilities and didn't inquire what her purpose here was.

"Behold!" She announced to Yew,as the two arrived in the training area, a massive area dedicated to training. It had anything an aspiring huntress could need. Training dummies, training arenas, marksman ranges and all sorts of other useful amenities.

She began walking towards an empty archery range, assuming Yew was following right behind.

"You were right. This is one of the best ranges I've ever seen!" Said Yew.
She ran over to the empty range and looked around
"Good quality targets, score boards, spare arrows, and pretty damn good distance sets."
She set herself up at 100 meters.
"You wanna go first? Or should I?"

Yuuka gestured towards the range, telling Yew to go first, "Go ahead, I want to see how you shoot." In the meantime, Yuuka moved a short distance to a mat where she could practice with her daggers without any chance of accidentally eviscerating someone, although she was still making sure to watch Yew

"Alright then"
Yew fired three arrows in quick succession. Three bulls-eyes
"That's rare for my first shot of the day. A sign of good things to come!" She predicted.

"Hey, you're actually as good as you said, nice!" Yuuka encouraged as she began tearing away at a training dummy with both of her daggers.

"Well, I wont get anywhere by lying, will I?" Yew responded.
She set the distance to 150 meters.
"I'm not perfect at this distance."
She fired another three arrows. A bulls-eye and two middle rings.
"You're pretty swift with those daggers"

"Thanks! But I'm not really that good! Any experienced close combat specialist would be able to beat me easily, I only practice with these in case Grimm get to close range where I can't use my bow." Yuuka said cheerfully, combining her daggers back into a bow. She walked up to the target, "Here, let me show you what a scope is good for!"

She spent a few seconds gauging multiple factors - the wind (Not that there was any, but it was habit), the range, the weight of these training arrows and these aerodynamics, and focused carefully before finally firing three arrows in a row with several seconds in between each. Each arrow hit the cente of the bullseye, mere millimeters between each.

"See, there's no need to rush. Spend more time on lining up a good shot, and you'll get a good shot! Envision the shot a thousand times in your head before you fire it." She said, lowering her bow and stepping back.

"Wow, those are some impressive shots! I normally do the pre-shot checks from 70 meters up, but I'm trying to get good enough to have it done instinctively. I think I'm almost there for the 100 meters, but beyond that, I'm a little sloppier than I'd like to be.
So where'd you learn to shoot? Outside of what you learned here I mean"

"A mix of long years of experience fighting Grimm all across the world, in every kingdom, and constant practice back when I was here in beacon. And by constant practice, I mean every moment I wash studying, eating or sleeping I was practicing my shooting. Though I don't recommend taking that route..." Yuuka frowned, "Sure, I shoot well now, but I never had any friends here because I was too busy studying and training. Was it really worth it? I'm not so sure..."

Yuuka moved back, splitting her bow back into knives and practicing her eviscerating on a in my once more.

"Roughly the same story with me. I spent all my spare time practicing. Didn't have friends. But I was determined to find Shard, and I kinda wished I hadn't seen what he became. All I can do now is try to help him recover." Said Yew.
She lined up another three shots. Two bulls-eyes and one middle ring.
"So how'd you end up working for the government?"

"Hmm, not sure really. I just felt... Unfulfilled I guess? I was traveling the world, sure. I was helping out a lot of people, sure. But I just felt like nothing I was doing was having much impact. With this job I can do things with a lot more impact than just helping a farmer who's farm is being terrorised by Grimm." Yuuka said, as she spun around in a graceful coup de grace, decapitating the dummy. Frowning, she moved to replace it.

"That seems fair enough" Yew responded
"I don't reckon I could handle all the paperwork though. sitting down for extended periods of time gets me all titchy."
Another three shots. Two bulls-eyes and one bounced off the dividing ring between the middle section and the bulls-eye

"Well... That's enough about me, I think... I know your story and why you're here, but why join up with what is basically a mercenary group to fight pirates? Why not do something safer like attend one of the combat schools? Maybe not beacon, if you don't want to run into Shard, but you could've attended something like Signal." Yuuka asked, as she split another dummy in half, this time from the middle outwards.

"Well, for a few reasons. Firstly, all the Lien I have left is only enough to live off for a week, certainly nowhere near enough to pay for schooling. Second, by joining the Pirate Hunters, I fix the money problem, and if I end up with some notoriety from it, Shard may find out I'm in town without a scene being caused. That way, he won't be too surprised when I go and meet him. Also, if he decides to try and fight me maybe he'll think twice if he suspects I'm a good fighter. Plus, I doubt Shard has much money either, so this job could let me help in that regard too."

"Ahh... Well fair enough." Yuuka said, feeling the conversation drying up as she moved to the nearest free archery range, reforming her bow.

With a look of intense focus, she began to fire a constant stream of arrows, one every few seconds, at the target, almost all of them hitting the bullseye, and the few that didn't, hit the very edge of it.

"So, do we have a mission planned yet? I'm thinking it might be good to plan all everything ahead of time." Asked Yew.
Three shots, same result as previous three.

"Not really... We'll be put on hold at first, but as soon as we hear about a pirate attack we'll be rushing there to stop it as fast as possible. The ship we're going to be using is very fast for its strength, so if all goes to plan we'll be able to catch the pirates." Yuuka said, "Ooh right, look at this. A little trick I picked up on my travels!"

Moving over to a conveniently placed metal bar nearby so that it was directly below her, Yuuka jumped up, flipping so that she was hanging by her feet from the bar, and from that position she loosed several arrows at the target. All three hit the bullseye, although one only by a millimetre.

"The flip bit is easy enough. I don't reckon I could get bulls-eyes though." Said Yew.
She walked over to another bar to try the move.
Landed the flip perfectly, two shots on the outer ring and one total miss.

"Heh, when you're doing a trick like this it's all about instincts - you really can't predict most of the important aspects of shooting hanging like this." Yuuka said, dropping back down and stretching out, moving towards a bench to take a break.

Yew dropped down as well. Instead of joining Yuuka, however, she snapped Flayed Terror and sheathed the sword. Extending the whip, she decided to practice aiming it. Bows were fine and dandy, but she still hadn't got the hang of aiming the whip.

Yuuka curiously watched Yew wielding her whip for a while, wondering why she would use a whip along with a bow. For the range maybe? But then a spear would just as good, if not better. For the fear aspect? Unlikely, the Grimm weren't afraid of something like a whip - if they did know fear, they would probably fear a more conventional weapon more, such as a sword. Maybe she had a lot of experience with it? Heh. Yuuka laughed mentally at that one.

"So why do you use a whip along with your bow? It doesn't seem like it synergizes with your bow very well," She asked, deciding to just ask the owner of the weapon instead of making up increasingly ridiculous guesses.

"Well, a few reasons actually" She answered.
Yew stopped and stretched a little.
"The first being I couldn't think of anything I could use the bowstring for. The second is to scare people. I don't really want to scare people away, but if I couldn't weasel information out of people vocally... well... Whips are kinda intimidating, don't ya think? I don't really like to use it that way, but I was desperate when I designed this thing, so I might as well learn to use it as more than a mobile vine to swing on."
Yew walked over to a nearby vending machine and bought herself and Yuuka a drink.
"So does your weapon have another function?" She asked, throwing the drink to Yuuka.

Yuuka nodded, seeing some merits in using a whip. Personally though, she would never use one, especially not if she had to use the bowstring for the whip part. Sure, the bowstring could be converted to a decent whip, but it wouldn't be nearly effective enough to warrant damaging the string like that. Although that was just her thoughts - perhaps the girl had worked out a way to make it work well.

Catching the drink, she drank it quickly, nodding in thanks, "Aside from splitting into a pair of dagger? I have special ammunition, but I'd rather not waste it - the ammunition isn't exactly cheap, and I don't have much to spend on arrows. You'll probably see it when we actually fight, I guess." She said.

Yew perked up.
"If any of your special arrows do the same stuff mine do, I could help with that! I make my arrows myself. Kinda had to learn, considering my lack of money and constantly being in the wilderness."

"What do your arrows do? I have flash arrows, fire arrows and an arrow with a rope pulley attached. Though I tend to go to the best blacksmiths I know, it's especially hard to make the pulley arrows, and balancing the others just right is no easy task." Yuuka replied.
