And then there was nothing...
Funny, but it seemed that whatever I'd planned, no mater what schemes I'd lain or how intricately I sought to weave a web around this arena, my luck had simply run out. Whoever my opponent was clearly was just on a whole other level apart from me, as despite hearing the hiss of my snakes forming, that was indeed the last thing I heard, and the bubble of red was the last thing I saw, before I felt a sharp blow to my forehead and everything went black. Later, I would discover that apparently the man in question had somehow pierced through my snake and used the hilt of the sword he launched through it to knock me out. I am thankful of that, at least, for no doubt such a sword that could pierce through the scales of my snake would have torn me to shreds in an instant.
Regardless, I fell, and I assume Oshe did, too, for I woke up some time later, on the ground outside of the arena, being tended to by an Iryou-Nin, with Oshe not far from me. Who had prevailed of the remaining two? Well, I couldn't tell just then.
"You're lucky we got you out of there when we did, y'know." Said the orderly, at least if I recall it correctly, (the whole scene is still a bit fuzzy, as that hit to the noggan kind of muddled things up a bit) as she fussed over the small wound on my forehead made by the hilt of the sword (It left a scar, but thankfully my bangs cover it.)
"If we hadn't dropped down and retrieved you two when we did, you'd almost certainly have had that tree fall on you. Bad business that. Don't know what that girl was thinking..."
I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude then for whoever had rescued me, although I hated the idea of needing to be saved. It appeared that apparently I still had a long way to go before I was ready to be a jounin; at least, if I wanted to be a jounin of that calibre.
