Two years later…
Ken has been learning martial arts from his uncle Hideaki.
He thrusted his sword forwards and attacked.
He practiced his sword techniques while Hideaki watched.
Hideaki: “Keep your guard up Ken.”
He stood up and walked towards Ken.
Ken: “Uncle Hideaki, why do you think it’s important to learn the martial arts?”
At that moment, a small flying machine flew towards them. Hideaki whipped out his sword and swiftly cut it in half.
Hideaki answered Ken: “Self defense.”
He dropped the remote control he was holding and ran towards the broken machine.
Yoshi: “My beetle-bot, I made it myself…”
Hideaki: “Oh, sorry about that Yoshi.”
“But to be fair, you probably shouldn’t have been flying that thing around here. Hm?”
Yoshi: “Yeah… It’s alright. I’ll build a better one.”
“Anyway, your uncle’s place is interesting Ken. But I’ve had enough ‘traditionalism’ for today. Wanna go to the arcade?”
Ken: “I hear they have some new games.”
Their voices trailed off as they walked away.
Hideaki: “Ah, my back!”
Hideaki looked up at the sun.
He knew that he was getting old…
And he was uncertain about what the future may bring.
