With their duel having concluded, Hanae began to walk out of the arena saying, "alright Ayame, let's get out before the next duel starts." With the girl motioning for her senior in dueling to follow, Hanae began to walk through the walls to get back to their waiting room. As they did, the girl saw the one girl with the pendulum dragons, a serious look on her face as she started to make her way to the stage as well. With a pat on the shoulder, and a sly smile on her face, Hanae said, "well, good luck out there dragon girl. Don't choke." With that, the girl started walking forward, until getting back to the room, to see both Blues and the older guy there. With a wave she said, "yo there, guess you and I are opponents for next round Bluesy boy."
As Blues told the girl that she was only supposed to wait, Tycho came back and, while he was concerned about the power of the blue-eyes dragon as well, he then briefly turned his attention to Furiko. Her body lurching forward a bit from the force of the man's pat, the girl smiled and said, "well, I'll do my best." With that, it appeared the duel between Hanae and Ayame ended, prompting Furiko to get going. With a wave, she said, "I'm off."
Walking through the halls, the girl's expression started to become more focused as she started to think about her match up. There was no denying that she was still shaken from her duel against Kyouji, and it wasn't as if she could turn this around just by herself. She wanted to go toe to toe with Kyouji again, but in order to do that she needed to get there. And in order to do that she needed to win the match in front of her. Yet, there was the chance that she was still not good enough to even get beyond that. It would be pathetic of her to lose in the first round, yet she didn't even know how good everyone in the competition was. What if she was just -
"Well, good luck out there dragon girl. Don't choke."
Her thoughts were broken by Hanae's comment towards her, looking a bit confused at the girl. "She seems to be in a good mood." After making the comment to herself, Furiko took a deep breath and attempted to steel herself for the duel ahead of her. Walking into the stadium proper, the crowd seemed ready for their next match as she and her next opponent, a Rando Chance, were introduced to the audience. Putting a smile on her face, the girl looked at the man and said, "pleasure to meet you Rando. I hope we can have a good match.”
Rando smiled, holding up his arm and allowing the duel disk to snap to life. “I hope you put up a good fight. After all, I'm just small fry compared to what you're really after, huh?”
