Meta's eyes shined in awe from the attack he just witnessed.

"Teacher just sliced that rock in half!!!" The puffball motioned to his friend, Arthur, who was standing next to him. "Are we really going to learn that?!!!"

Arthur glanced at Meta and smirked a bit.

"We better," He sneered, "It's about time we learn something good."

Meta nodded in agreement. The two eager Puffballs couldn't wait to start their lesson. The sudden sound of coughing abrupted the shared moment between the two, however. Both of them looked at their Mentor a few feet in front of them. He was kneeling on the ground, coughing. The two puffballs exchanged a worried glance. Meta took a few cautious steps towards him.

"T-teacher? Are you okay?"


Bate heard the tiny puffball call out to him. He wiped the blood off his mask and took a few slow breaths to steady his breathing before responding.

"I-I'll *cough* be fine..." His voice was a bit shaky, but could still be understood.

In some ways, it's true. He'll be okay after resting for a few hours; it happens occasionally from time to time when he does something that overexerts his body. He sat down and slightly lifted his mask. He coughed a few more times and sighed.



Bate averted his gaze and focused his attention to the small figure standing in front of him: a navy blue Puffball on the verge of crying.

"What? I said I'll be fine." He made a shooing motion with his hand. "Just leave me *cough* alone for a few minutes, alright?"

"'re bleeding...." Meta pointed to his Mentor's blood covered glove. Bate looked at his hand and quickly hid it behind his back. The small Puffball started sniveling, which caused the elder to panic. He had to think of something quick before Meta started crying; the last thing he needs right now is the little runt starting a scene.

"I...It's nothing serious, Gumball. Please, just don't cr-"

Too late.

Tears started falling from the young Puffballs face. He ran over, hugged the older Puffball and cried.


Dun lie to your students, you fool. o^o

The next page was supposed to be a flashback to explain what's wrong with Bate, but I decided to scrap it. I'll just say it here and spare you a worthless page:

Health wise, Bate is the weakest out of the 4. This certain attack is one of his strongest moves, but as you can see, it ends up getting him quite ill afterwards. The only one (still alive) who knew about this was Gordon. Bate does know the consequences for performing the attack, but he wanted to pass down this particular move to someone; seeing as the only other successor he taught it to passed away.

This move takes a lot of energy to use, but since Meta and Arthur are perfectly healthy, it won't tire them out like it does with Bate.
