Mortal Kombat - MK Round 2: Lotus vs Lita

[Toggle Names]

Description: Lieutenant Lita Luwanda thinks she's going to that she's going to the Living Forest to face off against Momoko from the Psycho Soldiers. There was a change in schedule and instead, Lita finds herself facing the Black Lotus.

The forest on Shang Tsungs island is a terrifying place. Dark and brooding, with unnatural creatures watching from the shadows, the atmosphere is never one of ease or comfort. Even the very trees themselves are potentially hostile, with faces on their trunks that watch travellers as they pass. Careful! They may bite! It would be much worse than their bark!

Within this place, a shadow silently moves among the branches, tracking potential prey!

Her assignment was to fight Momoko in the Living Forest and while she loathed the idea of bringing the actual metal sword instead of the polycarbonate replica into battle against a kid, she had experience with going through this forest on the way to her fight with Aya. The area gave too much of a forboding feeling for her to ever be comfortable with going through that forest with anything but her actual sword At the very least, she would resolve to keep the sword sheathed against Momoko unless she went suddenly homocidal maniac on her. The shards seemed to have different effects on differing fighters.

As she pauses to look around, she sees no sign of the opponent that she was supposed to face and for whatever reason the trees with facial features contorted in varying levels anger, agony, and malevolence is making the Delta Red soldier downright twitchy. She doesn't like being twitchy.

COMBATSYS: Lotus has started a fight here.

Lita             0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Lotus

The shadowy figure sweeping through the treetops like a ghost remains yet unseen from below. The hunter is taking great care to ensure complete suprise from her victi- opponent!

Carefully creeping into position, Black Lotus grins menacingly as she eyes her target before taking a diving leap from a branch above and behind Lita, attempting to dig the metal fingertip claws she wears into the womans shoulders and pounce her, shouting "FREE HUGS!" just as she would impact!

COMBATSYS: Lita blocks Lotus' Catch the Prey.

[   \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////////////]
Lita             0/-------/------=|-------\-------\0            Lotus

Completely unaware of what's going on, she's looking low because of the expected height of her opponent but then she's tipped off by the sound made when the branch shakes from the shadowy figure's weight being removed from it. She doesn't have time to move completely out of the way. At most she has time to turn and bring up her arms and keep the claws from digging as far into her as they could've.

She hisses and takes stock of bloodied she is before she shoves her ambusher away. Not enough to damage but enough to clear enough space to draw her sword. It wasn't someone who she was expecting to see but who was she to look a gift lunatic in the mouth?

"I think I'll decline the hug, love. To what do I owe the honour?"

The Delta Red was very grateful she opted to bring the metal sword. She goes for the quick release latch on her sword scabbard and brings the weapon out in front of her and then takes a horizontal swing followed by a thrust towards the stomach.

COMBATSYS: Lotus blocks Lita's Power Strike.

Lita             0/-------/------=|=------\-------\0            Lotus

Her mystery opponet flips away as she is pushed by Lita, landing cleanly and grinning, hands clenched in a claw-like position. She ducks the swing, and knocks away the thrust with her hand, causing a small cut as the metal filigree absorbs most of the edges power. Lotus tilts her head, sizing Lita up from head to toe slowly as the sword is drawn "Aaww.... you're no fun! I don't bite! much.... honest! you'll never even notice me!". She giggles "Oh, i just was bored, and you were the first person i saw roaming around, so figured what the heck". Lotus then winks, stage-whispering "the giggles told me to!".

As she does this, her other hand reaches back, plucks out a throwing dagger, and with a flick of her wrist sends it flying towards Litas face!

COMBATSYS: Lita dodges Lotus' Thrown Weapon.

Lita             0/-------/------=|=------\-------\0            Lotus

"The giggles," she says in a tone oozing with skepticism. "My word... You're off your bleedin' rocker."

She isn't given much more time to meditate on the sanity(or lack thereof) of her opponent before she has a knife flying her way. She doesn't even think about it. She tilts to the side and then she repositions herself with a few steps allowing her to get into her sword's ideal range. Once there, she takes a slash at her ambusher's legs and then strafes around her. As she does so she takes a closer look at her.

"I think I've heard about you..."

COMBATSYS: Lotus parries Lita's Random Strike!

[   \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////////////  ]
Lita             0/-------/---====|==-----\-------\0            Lotus

Lita gets a twisted joker-esque grin as she draws a pair of wicked-looking daggers, turning aside the slash as she steps in "You got the bloody part right, sweets!". Once in close, Lotus stabs one knife at Litas neck for the artery, and the other at her forward leg, going for ANOTHER artery simultaniously! "Really? I haven't heard of me yet! I really should ask about me the enxt time i see me......

COMBATSYS: Lita fails to interrupt Exsanguinate EX from Lotus with Rising Slash.
- Power fail! -

[         \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////////////  ]
Lita             0/-------/--=====|====---\-------\0            Lotus

Lita's strafing was used to position herself for a strike however she's just barely a step behind Lotus in spite of her preparation. She practically moves into the strike sending blood gushing everywhere.

The sword that she was attempting to slash upwards with glides harmlessly past her and growls. She's taking stock of her situation. She's bleeding profusely and she has this cackling mad woman who she's certain took away one of the Earthrealm warriors and all of that makes her mad.

COMBATSYS: Lotus equips a luminous Dark Red Soul Shard.

Lita             0/-------/--=====|====---\-------\0        [E] Lotus

Tearing her daggers out of Lita as the blood begins to flow, Lotus squeeeeeeees as she leaps sideways with a spin. Having slipped around her wounded prey, she ducks low, throwing out a leg sweep to try to further delay Litas recovery of her bearings. Best to let the bleeding do the hard work for her!

COMBATSYS: Lotus successfully hits Lita with Random Strike.

Lita [E]         1/-------/=======|====---\-------\0        [E] Lotus

She growls as she feels the daggers rip from her body and the blood pours down running down her neck and thigh. Her teeth grit in rage as she's being confronted by someone who is entirely too gleeful about seeing her bleed. To add injury to the insult to injury she gets her legs taken from under her.

She doesn't fully rise to her feet at first. She just jabs her sword into the ground and sends the dirt in the ground flying right for the dagger wielder's face. Only then, does the sword woman rise to her full height.

COMBATSYS: Lita successfully hits Lotus with Fighting Dirty.

[               \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////////     ]
Lita [E]         1/-----==/=======|======-\-------\0        [E] Lotus

GAK! Lotus is definately enjoying herself a bit TOO much! Her guard slips enough that she gets a facefull of dirt, and has to spent precious seconds blinking her eyes to get clear vision.

Seeing Lita stand vaguely through watery eyes, Lotus decides to err on the side of caution and keep some threat to moving closer!

She abruptly breathes out a large cloud of green, putrid, venomous smoke, filling the area ahead of her, in the hopes of making Lita back off!

COMBATSYS: Lotus successfully hits Lita with Toxic Miasma.
Glancing Blow

[                 \\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////////     ]
Lita [E]         1/-----==/=======|=======\-------\0        [E] Lotus

Lita decides not to move in closer which partially saves her. The problem is she hesitates just slightly and it causes her to get a partial whiff of the venomous cloud when she tries to side step. She then waves her sword back and forth using it to blow the air away from her as she goes in closer.

She can't really afford to stay back. She has to charge in as a sense of urgency hits her. She steps in with a series of three strikes. One directed to the neck, one directed to an artery in Lotus' leg and and then a final slash across her attacker's stomach. She is just as capable as vicious as her adversary.

COMBATSYS: Lita successfully hits Lotus with Triple Slash.
* Attack Of Opportunity! *

[                   \\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////         ]
Lita [E]         1/---====/=======|=======\=------\1        [E] Lotus

Unfortunately for Lotus, the cloud does little to stop Lita, who moves in faster than expected! This catches the mess-loving lunatic by suprise, and she is unable to get her guard up in time!

Three solid cuts connect, and Lotus smiles viciously as she sprays blood from neck, leg, and stomach! She actually tries to USE this to her advantage, aiming the spray towards Litas face in an attempt to blind her momentarily! "NOW you're gettin into the spirit of things! HEEEEEEEEEHEEHEEHEE!"

The red gem she gouged into her own chest begins to glow ominionsly as Lotus leaps in close, attempting to impale Lita in the chest near her heart with both daggers simultaniously, held in a reverse grip, the points of impact very close together to thus increase the trauma to the area impacted!

COMBATSYS: Lotus channels the glare of the vicious eye.

Lita [E]         2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|=------\-------\0        [E] Lotus

Lita gets hoist by her own petard in the figurative sense. All that effort put into making Lotus bleed she just shoots it into her face. From there, things just spiral out of control. The daggers go in but they don't quite hit the heart directly. It just means she doesn't die right away. This is both bad and good. Bad because her agony will last just that little bit longer. Possibly good because it may mean that she may be able to take the Darkstalker down with her.

She hefts her sword as she taps the Soul Shard carved in the shape of a triangle as spirits within infuse her with energy. Her entire body glows lemon yellow as she swings her sword in a brutal flurry going for as many vital locations as possible. She wants to make sure that Lotus pays for this victory dearly. If she lands them all... They both will probably bleed to death.

COMBATSYS: Lita channels the strength of the killing fist.

COMBATSYS: Lita can no longer fight.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  <
Lotus [E]        0/-------/------=|

When the slashing barrage is over, she stabs the sword into the ground using it to keep herself standing.

COMBATSYS: Lotus blocks Lita's If It Bleeds I Can Kill It.

[             \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  <
Lotus [E]        0/-------/----===|

With a savage tug, Lotus pulls her weapons from Litas chest, pleased with her precision. The strike was designed to do maximum damage without actually killing the target! She does so just in time as Lita comes out swinging, in a last-ditch attempt to take the mad bloodletter with her!

Lotus is hard pressed to keep up, getting pushed back, her arms a blur as she parrys and redirects as many strikes as possible, which is luckily more than get through. Just as she hits the limit of what she can handle, Lita stops.

Black Lotus is bleeding badly from multiple places now, but not as bad as she could be!

Grinning savagely, Lotus rushes at her exhausted opponent! Both daggers are driven directly into Litas eyesockets, and after a beat twisted 90 degrees! With a yank, one is pulled out and gabbed upwards into her chin and mouth, followed by the other to slice the neck! Stepping sideways, Lotus watches gleefully as the blood drains from gaping askew neck wound for a few moments, before using her free-hand weapon to slash one more time, finishing the decapitation, and leaving Litas head impaled on the other dagger.

Raising the grisly trophy into the air, she laaaaaaughs madly as she feels the rush of approval from the spirits in her gem, and the rush of a fresh batch of them drawn to the messy kill! The gem in her chest gloooooooows brightly in the dim light as the mad laughter echoes through the forest......

COMBATSYS: Lotus has ended the fight here.
