Katana Tour: Character This or That with Rileigh
Dresses or Jeans? Jeans. Have you ever tried to kick someone’s face with a skirt on? So not pretty.
Swords or Daggers? Depends. A sword if I’m fighting ninja and a dagger if I’m trapped and in need of an honorable death.
Flowers or Chocolate? So there was this samurai and—long story short—cherry blossoms are kinda hot.
Lover or Fighter? Fighter. It’s way less complicated.
Sing or Dance? Um…I’m not really good at either. Can I just punch someone?
Mixed Martial Arts or Tae Kwon Do? Kendo all the way. It’s the art of fighting with a sword and, hey, a girl has to accessorize, right?
Early Bird or Night Owl? Early bird. It’s harder for the ninja to hide in the daylight.
Cloudy or Sunny? Cloudy. There’s less of a chance of blinding myself if the sun reflects off my sword.
Earrings or Necklaces? Necklaces. If I’m fighting and someone rips off my necklace—no biggie. Not so much if they rip out my earrings.
Rileigh Martin would love to believe that adrenaline had given her the uncanny courage and strength to fend off three muggers. But it doesn’t explain her dreams of 15th-century Japan, the incredible fighting skills she suddenly possesses, or the strange voice giving her battle tips and danger warnings.
While worrying that she’s going crazy (always a reputation ruiner), Rileigh gets a visit from Kim, a handsome martial arts instructor, who tells Rileigh she’s harboring the spirit of a five-hundred-year-old samurai warrior.
Relentlessly attacked by ninjas, Rileigh has no choice but to master the katana–a deadly Japanese sword that’s also the key to her past. As the spirit grows stronger and her feelings for Kim intensify, Rileigh is torn between continuing as the girl she’s always been and embracing the warrior inside her.
