Who: Pylades & Orestes
What: Reunited and it feels so good
When: Tuesday afternoon
Where: The gym where Pylades is an instructor
The old adage 'do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life' had applied to Pylades a handful of times over his...well, life. Most recently, he'd gotten qualified to teach MMA, and he'd found a gym that had hired him and pretty much allowed him to teach how he wanted. Which suited him fine.
Today they were working on judo moves, and Pylades was teaching various throws. He wasn't a mountain of muscle, but he was pretty adept at throwing bigger men than him to the ground. He was demonstrating the proper stance to begin, when he felt the sensation of another like himself nearby. He wanted to look through the wall of windows to try and see who it might be, but he didn't need to break his concentration anymore.
He gestured for one of his students to come forward, and walked them through each of the movements and how they would all look as one motion. The two of them then reset their positions, then came at each other with the intent to put the other on his back. Pylades was just that little bit faster, though, and he had the student looking up at the ceiling in almost no time at all.
