Arriving at the training ground Lex saw a huge field with obstacles, dummies, weapons and their training ground and other facilities
Cougar handed Lex a Training Gi,a black dress like a kimono and black pant with a golden belt(think DBZ gi except black)and with the royal crest on its right changing into the gi he came before Cougar and he pointed towards a course which could be a 400mts and said,"You have to run this course 20 times and then we can have lunch",Lex was in disbelief that would be atleast 8km, any sane man would think he was tricked and by looking at the captain's face he knew that he was bloody serious and started running towards the course.
Meanwhile in the captain's head,"Is he seriously going to run? I just wanted him to see whine and I would have lowered his run time but if he obeys me like this then he will become a fine warrior in the future".
After hours of running Lex finished and had his lunch,after that started doing light excercise and hand to hand combat, Cougar impressed by his will and conviction.
This routine continued for 2 months and he was perfectly able to run the course without needing time off.Then Cougar added weights and asked Lex to do the same routine.
*6 months later*
Lex was astonished by his growth,he could move about much easier, he could defend himself from a low life thug and his agility sky rocketed.
One day During training a stray cat came and started watching them practice sitting comfortably in the shade of a tree.Lex started walking towards it and gave it some treat and started petting it, since then the cat came almost every day.
What Lex wanted most to know was if he had Haoshoku(conquer's)haki and the only way to find that out is to have the willpower and no one can teach him that.He tried it out on the maid, looking intensely at her and making her faint but nothing happened and the maid seeing him staring at her got red faced and excused herself.
Lex also asked about the other two haki i.e., armament and observation but it seemed that the captain was oblivious to this and he sighed he could only hope now.
One day Lex asked Cougar to take him to the city as he had never been. The captain was hesitant as he was the prince and had to first ask the king.
The following month after a lot of pestering he Cougar finally agreed and when the entourage came to pick Lex up he was shocked as more than a hundred men where present.Looking at the captain he sighed and said,"Look capitan I'm only going to the town to see what's happening to the people and not to fight them I don't need a hundred men, infact I'm going undercover so you better arrange it".
Captain was baffled and said,"My prince it is not safe in the city pirates and bandits move about it is for your safety that I'm asking you to take them along".Lex was adamant and with a lot of comprising Lex was joined with 3 army men and 20 behind them hiding,"Oh btw you have to change into something normal we are going undercover you know"said Lex
The captain accepted and all of them changed into normal clothes.
