Juri watched as her husband went through his Muy Thai routines, admiring the way his perspiration highlighted his toned form. With a shout, he jumped into the air and did his infamous Jaguar Kick, ending the exercise.
Juri threw a towel at her spouse and walked over to him, smirking.
Adon didn't like that smirk, it usually meant trouble, mainly for him.
"Bet I can do your Jaguar Kick," Juri purred.
"What do I get if you can't?"
"I'll make you breakfast in bed tomorrow and you can eat it off me."
Juri chuckled at the giddy grin and dazed look in Adon's eyes before snapping her fingers in front of his face.
"What do you get if you do it?"
Juri's smirk was practically demonic now. "You have to join Dan's dojo as a student."
Adon glared at her for a moment before finally nodding.
The first ten tries made Adon smirk. Juri was on her rear and rubbing it a bit as she got up to attempt again. This next time proved more successful than the last, but her legs wobbled as she landed the attack, falling back again onto her bruised butt.
The sound of Adon's chuckling caused Juri to snarl.
"Well it's not like you can do any of my moves!"
That silenced Adon and he helped his wife to her feet. "What move did you have in mind?"
"My Pinwheel special of course," Juri replied.
"I can't do it. I'm not flexible enough."
Juri's expression looked somewhere between annoyed and flattered at that but she soon did the slowest version of her Pinwheel. "At least try it. We can always raise the stakes."
"No, the first bet was enough. I'll try it but promise not to laugh, okay?"
Juri didn't respond and waited for him to attempt it.
Fifty minutes later, Adon's entire body ached and Juri was standing over him, the same smirk from earlier on her lips.
"You still haven't landed my move," Adon pointed out.
Juri just shrugged her shoulders and did a near-perfect Jaguar Kick, Adon's mouth hanging open slightly.
"I guess Dan has a new student," Juri said, helping Adon to his feet. Then she placed her hands on his shoulders and led him towards the living room. Once there, she had him lay face-down on the couch and started a massage, the rarest of rare occurrences for her. She had told him about her skill with her hands but had never, albeit for one tiny rub, done anything like a massage for him.
Now though Adon groaned as her hands started their work, loosening muscles, easing out the aches, and just making him feel better than he had in ages.
Then she went deeper and he nearly cried out.
"That's for not doing my move correctly," Juri replied, grinding a few more cries out of him before turning him around and kissing him deep on the lips. "That's for flattering me."
Adon smiled once they broke apart and spent a few quiet moments with his wife before a thought struck him like one of his master's Tiger Knees.
"Why do you want me to join Dan's dojo anyway?"
Juri shrugged her shoulders. "I thought you'd look sexy in pink."
Dan was snoring on his moldy couch when Adon knocked on his door, prompting the Saikyo master to fall onto the floor, curse, and finally go to answer the door. He became instantly alert when he saw Adon there in a larger copy of his pink gi.
"Why are you dressed like me? Is Juri going to come up behind me and scare me?"
"No, not this time. I...I humbly request to become your student, Master Hibiki."
Dan's face looked just like a child after hearing that Santa Claus was coming to visit and he gave a mighty shout, his fist pumping into the air.
"Two! I have two students now father!"
"Two? Is Sakura training under you again?"
"No, she just stops by now and then for movie night with Jimmy. No, my new student joined just yesterday! C'mon, let's go to the dojo and prepare you for the official induction into Saikyo!"
The induction consisted of listening to Dan talk about the honor of Saikyo, the glory of his father, and his amazing abilities, Adon forced to repeat them word for word. Reprieve came when Dan noticed something behind Adon.
"Ah, my other pupil! Come, come and meet your fellow student in Saikyo!"
Adon turned around and felt his heart stop.
There was his wife decked out in the same pink gi as Dan, the emblem of Saikyo on her chest and back. Unable to contain the slight reddening of her face, Juri bowed to Dan before holding out her hand to Adon.
"It's a pleasure to meet you fellow student."
Dan was about to start off on the first lesson a moment later when Adon interrupted.
"W-why are you here? Why are you his student? What's going on?!"
"Dan did me a favor and I owed him one. I wanted you to join because I wasn't going through this alone. Also, I think pink's a good color on me. You agree, right?"
Adon nodded and Juri grinned. "Great! So...master...what's our first lesson?"
As Dan started on the basics of the Gadoken technique, Juri squeezed Adon's hand before leaning over and whispering in his ear.
"Bet you we become masters tomorrow."
"Two days," Adon replied, "Dan's abilities aren't that useless."
Juri and Adon parted then, both bowing deeply.
"That's better, now watch as I perform the Gadoken!"
Adon and Juri chuckle under their breath as they watch Dan being blown back by his own move. Recovering, Dan has them try, Adon behind Juri.
She puts just a little too much energy into it and ends up destroying the wall containing the portrait of Go Hibiki, Dan's face pale as both of his students look at him.
"G-go pick up my dry-cleaning and then return Sakura's late movies at the video-store!" Dan ordered, falling to his knees and bawling his eyes out.
The two students leave then, Juri brushing up against her husband as both head out into the street.
"You do look sexy in pink," she purred.
