Eve - The pirate and the thunderstorm

Description: Targer acquired : another fighter from the Inter-school tournament has refused to go through the medical scanning and tests. Have no fear, Eve is on the hunt for them. This time, the pirate girl May is her target.



Well, that sure was a bust.

May had high hopes after her first victory in the Inter-School Martial Arts tournament that she'd at least be taking a piece of the 'booty'. Surely she'd get some manner of respect from Makoto after that, even if she still hadn't been able to beat the indomitable Karate master that she's currently living with. Alas, all her hopes and dreams came crashing down after she got paired up with Kyo Kusanagi in the second round, who she was unable to beat even after half the students in Gorin had swarmed him.

Distraught with the feeling that she couldn't even repay her adopted crew's loyalty, May returned home to find the dojo empty. "Hmrg.." The girl grumbled as she set her things down. Makoto must be at school right now, because that's what kids their age do during the day. Not an orphan like her though, she hadn't even bothered actually attempting to enroll in Gorin, much less any other school. Part of that was her avoiding all that weird examining that the participants of the school were going through, but it was mostly because she knew she wouldn't fit in.

So she finds herself at Makoto's home doing some mopping like some manner of indentured servant. "Arr! To think that the bloodthirsty pirate May would be naught but a glorified maid!" She bellows, swinging her mop about. "Delegated to swabie duty, I be!" She sighs, knowing that her days of ruthlessly sacking ports are still very far away if she can't even manage to win over an injured opponent. "Bollocks..." The pirate girl scratches the back of her head, idly considering if joining a school might be worth her time. At least in the meantime while she's still in port.

No school for Ashley today -- she was sick.

Truth be told, Eve's services were needed for a specific mission. Another target acquired : a fighter from the tournament who had managed to slip pass the medical services that were given to the losing fighters. In those few special cases, Eve was given the mission to track down her targets and bring them back to the Atelier Group for data harvesting.

May was not the first school student Eve had tracked down, and she certainly wouldn't be the last. Glad in her dark magenta leather field armor, the blonde girl came to the Rindoukan Karate Dojo early in the morning, waiting for her to come. Alas, there was only one girl who came out of the dojo this morning and it wasn't her target...

Eve would have to wait. She was patient and dedicated to her mission : she will wait for as long as she needs if she has to. The blonde haired girl sat on top of the dojo's roof, carefully hidden there. When someone finally comes in, she squirms a bit and hides further, giving stealthy glances in May's direction -- no doubt, she was the one she was looking for!

Eve leaps out of the root, using her chi to create a gust of wind around her before she lands, so soften her fall. She lands gracefully on her feet. She turns her attention back to the dojo's entrance : she knew May was alone, no need for subtility.

Concentrating a moment, Eve gathers a ball of lightning in her right hand and fires it at one of the wooden door of the dojo to blast it open. The impulsion and kinectic force of the lightning bolt enough to shatter and blast the woods into dozens of splinters and smaller pieces, leaving a gaping hole where it once was, Eve standing just a dozen feet away from it, a malicious smile on her lips.

"OI!!" May's reaction to a part of the dojo exploding is immediate. She switches her mop for her giant anchor and rushes towards the noise, soon running outside to see a strange blond haired girl dressed in black. The obvious culprit of the damages.

"What the bloody hell is yer problem, mate!?" Screams the outraged pirate girl, clad in her traditional orange uniform and armed with her signature improvised weapon. "Blowing holes in me ship, will ye!!? I'll have ye walk the plank for such nonsense!" Much of Makoto's temper has clearly rubbed onto May as one sure fire way to get her pissed, besides questioning the legitimacy of her pirate ways, is to mess with the dojo, her home, or 'ship' as she calls it. Pirates are very territorial creatures you see, and they don't appreciate it when someone starts opening fire on the place their live.

May jumps down the steps leading to the dojo proper and advances towards Eve with clear hostile intent in her bright young eyes. She smells a fight coming and she doesn't want to get it near the dojo. Why is Eve blasting holes in her home is irrelevant for the moment, she only knows that she did and now May is going to bash her into paste for it.

COMBATSYS: May has started a fight here.

"Come out of there, I know you're there!" The blonde haired woman shouts, slowly lowering the hand that fired off the powerful electric blast. Her eyes are narrowed into a frown : a ruthless expression on her face.

When May finally appears in sight, Eve's lips curl into a smile. Her demanor and speeches were unsettling Eve though. In all of her life in NESTS, Eve has never been taught what a 'pirate' is. It was not necessary, after all, for her to know about such things.

Eve blinks and lifts her gaze up at the dojo. This was no ship... Why she had an anchor... What's with this girl? The surprise fades away though when May goes down the step and a wicked smile spreads on Eve's lips.

"When the ship starts sinking, the rats finally come out of the hold," A soft laughter escapes her throat at the thought, "No matter, I'll show you how I deal with vermine!" Without further explanation, the girl lifts her arm up to attack May : squalls gather up around of Eve, blades of winds forming around her forearm. In a single sweep of her arm, Eve unleashes the thin windblades in May's direction.

A shower of dozens of thin oscillating blades made out of wind who could cut through fabrics and flesh with the proper angle.

COMBATSYS: May blocks Eve's Zephyr's Fury.

Eve              0/-------/---====|==-----\-------\0              May

"The only bilge rat that I see here is ye, matey!!" May calls back in her defiantly childish voice. How dare this land lubber have the gall to call /her/ a rat. She's Rindoukan's First Mate! In her mind at least. And she won't take this kind of treatment! While this ship does not belong to May, she won't let anyone board it without Makoto's permission and she launches herself into the attack. Why are Eve's reasons to attack her or the dojo? Who cares!? She's a lubber and lubbers get keelhauled. That's how it goes in May's mind.

"Yaarrr!!" May braces herself when an incoming blast of wind threatens to cut her asunder, placing her anchor in front of her to minimize the damage, cuts and tears appearing on her arms and legs where her anchor wasn't covering her, but otherwise looking fine. Certainly good enough to keep charging.

As the tiny buccaneer reaches her target, she's bringing her anchor back to wind up to then deliver a mighty swing down towards Eve's legs in order to knee cap her. "Get off me bloody ship, ye scallywag!!"

COMBATSYS: Eve dodges May's Sliding Anchor EX.

Eve              0/-------/---====|-------\-------\0              May

When May charges her up with that anchor, Eve blinks, her mouth a bit agape. Was she really going to use that anchor? Just... How... Why? Nothing about this girl made sense, and this oversized anchor she held, the way she swings it around with ease, yet her movement made it look like it was so heavy and dense.

How can you react to something like this? Surely an attempt to block the blow would break her bones. Despite the agility in May's fell sweep of her anchor, Eve reacts instinctively, a blast of wind underneath her feet making her leap back and avoid the anchor's smack on her legs.

The expression on Eve's face is one of surprise, as if she didn't expect to have the time to get out of the way, nor did she expect the small girl to attack her with that crude object. "I'm not leaving this place, not without you," Eve says, regaining her composure.

Electricity crackles through her limbs and a blast of chi under her feet literally hurls Eve in May's direction. She lifts her right leg up in an attempt to kick her midsection, the electricity discharging upon impact to shock the pirate.

COMBATSYS: Eve successfully hits May with Medium Kick.
- Power hit! -

Eve              0/-------/--=====|=======\-------\1              May

"Arrr! Hold still ye bleedin--OOFAGH!" May should really start focusing more in an actual fighting rather than hurling piratey insults to people. Her recklessness costs her yet again as she swings and misses, paying the prize for overextending by getting kicked in the midsection.

She's pretty light weight to be expected, despite the massive anchor that she's lugging around, and as she's struck with the electrifying kick she's sent flying backwards rolling on the ground cursing all the way. "Bollocks! Urg!!" Then as soon as she crashes into the dojo that brings her to a stop, she's quickly getting herself back up and running back at Eve, swinging her anchor with great eagerness to smash it into something. That didn't hurt nearly as much as when she got kicked by Kyo, she can do this!

"Yer not hauling me nowheres, matey! A Captain's place is with her crew!" May bellows back when Eve begins to explain her reasons for attacking her. "I've told ye social services dogs! A pirate's free to roam the wide blue seas and blue skies!! Yer not putting me in another orphanage!!"

Truly crazed beyond belief by paranoia and because she definitely lives in her own fantasy world, May doesn't even care of Eve's actual reasons for seeking her out. It makes her incredibly reckless but also brave beyond belief.

The dauntless pirate girl leaps towards the blond girl and thrusts her anchor towards face, jabbing the flat front side against her opponent's mouth and nose.

COMBATSYS: Eve blocks May's May Dynamic EX.

Eve              0/-------/-======|=======\-------\0              May

The blonde girl lands gracefully herself after her flying kick and she straightens herself up. She stares at May as the girl rises back up, a smirk spreading on Eve's face, "Keeping on fighting only serves to prolong your suffering," Eve says.

The comment about the orphanage makes her tilt her head to one side, "Orphanage? No... I'm taking you somewhere else... A much, much better place... It won't be long, I promise... And soon, all of this will just feel like a bad dream," Eve says, her smile only widening at the thought. She had seen on some of her first target, first hand, what happened to those she captured, after all.

When May lunges back at her, Eve lifts her arms up to protect her face, blocking the anchor with both arms. She tries to hold on to it so it doesn't hit her face right on, which she succeeds. Though it hits the leather on her forearm with a loud creak, the girl's feet sliding backward against the impact of the blow nonethless. The pain from the blow echos through her forearm but Eve tries to ignore it for now.

The girl tries to use the proximity of the anchor to her advantage : she tries to get a hold on it, sending a discharge of electricity through her arms and through it, to momentarily daze May and allow her to get closer to her while she's stunned by the electric blast. She then throws herself backward, holding on to the anchor and May, planting her foot into May's midsection to throw her off over her.

COMBATSYS: May endures Eve's Power Throw.

Eve              0/-------/=======|=======\=======\1              May

May gives a grunt when her anchor connects with the girl's guard and yet she still tries to push through it, digging her feet in to push her away.

"Are ye daft or somethin'!?" The pirate girl says with clenched teeth, eyes wild and in a frenzy, the wildness of something that is desperately trying to stay alive. "I said I be staying right here!" She cries out thoroughly enraged at the idea of someone telling her what to do or where to be.

"A pirate's life fer me!!!"

Such is her unyielding will to do as she pleases that she refuses to let go of her anchor even as she's getting electrocuted. The pirate girl fiercely keeps her mouth clenched all through it and just as she's being hauled upwards to be thrown, a spark of recognition flashes on her eyes when she spots an opening in her current position above Eve.


The girl throws a punch with her left gloved arm, and it seems that from within a flash of blue watery chi appears, a ripple of water that unleashes a GIANT WHALE from her knuckles. It flies straight down towards Eve's body to pancake her against the pavement.

COMBATSYS: May successfully hits Eve with Great Yamada Attack.

Eve              1/----===/=======|====---\-------\0              May

Stubborn pirate girl she was! Though Eve is just as stubborn as her target was, "I'm taking you with me! Unconscious if I must!" And she had to, for what they wanted to do with her.

Eve lets go of the anchor once she throws the pirate off -- however, before she has the time to roll back on her feet, May uses this time window to retaliate and send a giant whale of chi at her. Stranded and in a bad position to get out of the way, Eve attempts to absorb the blow with her own aura and block it with her chi, but alas, she doesn't manage to focus enough energy around her to absorb it.

The blast makes her shout in pain, knocking her against the pavement. The force literally causing a small crater around Eve and leaving small webs of cracks into it due to the pressure of the water blast.

The girl growls in pain when it's all over. Her slender frame slowly recovering from it as she gets on her feet. She pants softly, one hand curled up against her midsection. She grits her teeth a bit in anger, lifting her gaze up at May.

"Play time is over now," Eve says as she rises her other arm up, electricity gathering into it, crackling madly as a ball of lightning forms into her hand. Eve straightens herself up and brings her other hand toward the ball, empowering it with more electricity. She moves both of her hands back, as if giving herself a swing and she trusts her two hands foward. A large arc of lightning erupts from her palms, dancing chaoticly in a sinusoidal pattern. It rapidly covers up the distance between May and Eve, going straight for the pirate like a lightning bolt. Many smaller arcs of lightning burst out of the broad main one, hitting random objects in their path as Eve discharges the electricity in her straight at May.

COMBATSYS: May blocks Eve's Lightning Bolt EX.

"Arr har har har!!" May cackles madly even as she's sent tumbling over Eve's head after the throw, somehow managing to land on her feet. It is only her sheer insanity that is keeping her on her feet, as she seems to be greatly singed by the lighting already. Her eyes are spinning in confusion but her mouth is spread in wide brim grin. "Ripple me seas will ye!? I'll show ye what it means to cross sabers with a real sea dog! Yaaarrr!!"

But as stated earlier, its only her bluster that is keeping May on her feet. When the lightning bolt comes even after putting her anchor in the way to stop it, the tiny buccaneer's body clearly pays a hefty toll for taking the blow up front and begins to stagger forwards.

"O' Captain...my captain.." She mutters, tiredly and annoyed with herself, all these blasted losses are not the stuff that makes one worthy of forming part of the Rindoukan Karate crew! May's crazed eyes look up yet again and she dashes headlong towards Eve, spinning on her heel to get a 360 degree worth of momentum going to her anchor, swinging it as hard as she can towards the side of Eve's body.

COMBATSYS: May can no longer fight.

Once the lightning blast is out of the way and Eve discharges herself, the remaining static electricity in the air keeps the girl's hair spiked up over her head. She straightens herself up and she arches a brow, surprised to see May still standing after this violent lightning bolt.

What's worse is how she swings that anchor and spins around with it violently, gaining momentum rapidly. This time around, Eve literally lets herself fall to the ground to avoid the violent spin of the anchor, which passes a few inches above her body as she lies on the ground.

Thankfully, that last swings leaves May in a rather vulnerable spot and gives Eve a good opportunity to retaliate and get back on her feet. She gets on her knees, electricity building up in her palm, ready to attack May again but the way she notices her wobbling about and staggering, Eve figures she will not have to add anything more to end this fight.

COMBATSYS: Eve has ended the fight here.

And once May's body falters and she crumbles into unconsciousness, Eve rises up fully and she reaches out for her, to drag her up... Without the anchor, of course, "Have pleasant dreams," She says to the girl. Eve takes up a small device in her pocket, pressing a few buttons to call in the recovery team -- target acquired once more. She beams up proudly and drags May's unconscious frame out of the estate, so they can bring her back to the Atelier Group medical facility.

All the rest of their tests will end up being like an hazy dream and memory... From which May will soon wake up, finding herself lying on the ground of the dojo, later afternoon... Still with a door blasted to pieces, yet she might fail to remember what happened to the door exactly. Anchor accident maybe? Who knows...
