[Toggle Names]

Description: When crazy meets horror. Well today horror wins, and it's well deserved.

Things have been done a little differently for this fight. Instead of cameramen being there, putting themselves at risk by getting the attention of some of the more dangerous fighters, instead a number of small gopro and hidden cameras have been placed throughout this empty, abandoned beach house with its numerous long hallways and its dark living room. From the outside a few drone cameras hover around, recording any potential action that spills outside or any action that can be seen from the windows.

If there's any doubt whether Hisako will be at this location, there is an ominous sign: Around the house, cicadas fly in a deep circular pattern, screaming their song even as the sun peeks out only occasionally from behind dark billowing clouds.

Something is here. Something is ready.

Storm's (the cat) voice could be heard. "I don't like this Eden, I don't like it at all, don't you feel it." He was talking as they were making their way to the beach house from the road. Eden simply, shrugs her shoulders, even as her face slowly forms a grin. She could feel it indeed, there was someone here, wanting to kick some ass. At least that's what she thinks.

She makes her way up the few steps leading to the porch. Once there, she glances around, and puts a hand up for Storm to stop, before she opens the door and make her way inside. She figures her opponent would be inside as well. She rolls her shoulders and gets into position, not sure what to expect, but certain it will be fun, one way or another.

The house was nothing special to write home about, though abandoned it wasn't in any kind of terrible condition. There was still left over furniture, still electric wiring in the walls(though if Eden tries to turn on the living room lights, the amount of flickering will be horrendous), and still a dark stain on the ceiling.

Wait, what?

There was a dark spot on the ceiling that was steadily getting larger, black liquid dripping from what was presumably a burst pipe even as the staco started to warp and bend, the ceiling slowly caving in from real time. Except...it wasn't. And that dark stain...was that human hair? Spiderwebbed all around to resemble something else, before a human figure could be seen beneath the scalp? Before a pair of wide unblinking eyes were staring out at the girl with the talking cat.

After a certain point, Hisako dropped from the ceiling like a long overdue teardrop, hitting the wooden floor in an ugly sounding and ugly looking impact. The back of her skull hit hard, her limbs splaying out as if broken, but immediately she was crawling up to her feet as if nothing happened, and crawling toward Edenlith as her mouth opened, and air started sucking in through her lungs.

It appeared her opponent had been waiting for her.

COMBATSYS: Hisako has started a fight here.

Storm sneaks in, but staying away from Eden, from the fight to be.. Eden looks around the living room. She didn't think of trying to turn the light on at all, though she would have enjoyed the flickering, and would have been very hopeful of sparks too.. She just wanted to find her opponent. It is Storm however that saw Hisako first, not that he knew it was her right away, but the cat did end up screaming at the sight. At the moment, it seems it seems to be really on edge.

Eden gets her mind put back on track, away from the room itself, and looking for what made her cat screamed. When she sees Hisako, horror movie worthy and then some, she makes a 'o' with her mouth for a moment, before a sign appears beside her head. "Ok, that's creepy." She keeps watching, and her eyes shows she was still creeped out, but her mouth 'o' expression, slowly turned into a grin again. The sign text changes. "This is going to be painful, thank you!". She can't look away, and why should she.

She gets into a fighting stance, and takes a deep breath, win or lose, this will be something to remember forever... or at least a month.

COMBATSYS: Edenlith has joined the fight here.

Finally that lamp, which hadn't been turned on, would get some use as she takes it in her hand, and yanks the plug out, assuming it was plugged in. It was expected to turn on after all. Then she throws it toward Hisako. Nothing flashy, nothing cool. Just a lamp flying in the air.

Eden watches intently. Wondering what would happen. She had a feeling she would pay for that.

Edenlith         0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0           Hisako

The ghostly figure stands there in that dirty red kimono, her feet stained black from trudging through mud and dirt(and funny point of order, every step she takes, she leaves behind a foot print made of fresh grave.), that face scarred and almost pale grey in color. That face, that a lamp breaks itself upon as the sound of shattering echoes off of the walls. Hisako doesn't react at first, merely looking down at the mess on the floor, and only looking up as dark blood starts to ooze from a that deep scar across her face. As if it were something she'd just gotten. Hisako takes another step forward, her bare foot coming upon the old worn lightbulb, and shattering it into pieces as she unintentionally steps down.

Then her jaw unhinges, she lunges forward and SCREAMS into the face of her opponent. Screams so long and so hard that the walls shake, and bend inward like someone or something holding their breath.

Hisako leaps through the air and reaches her hands forward for Edenlith's lips and mouth, trying to pry it open so that she might climb inside and take possession. If she can, the sudden sensation of cold inside of her will be terrifying, the feeling of dread and the sudden fear of Men With Swords almost overwhelming.

When it subsides suddenly, it is because Hisako is behind the schoolgirl, naginata in hand as she swipes wildly at Edenlith's back and shoulders. She doesn't care what is in her way, as evidenced by that blade slicing through the wall next to Edenlith, as easily as a hot knife cuts through butter.

COMBATSYS: Hisako blitzes into action and acts again!

Eden ends up blinking, as the lamp doesn't seem to do much at all. Then the scream starts, and she laughs silently, but shields herself. It might look like she was mocking Hisako, but truth be told, she was having fun. Hisako looked more and more dangerous as time passes. She won't be bored in this fight. No sir.

When Hisako jumps toward her and grabs her mouth. She has no idea what the 'girl' is going to do. She tries to stop her, but stop what? She feels the cold. the terrifying cold. Her body shivers despite herself. The girl in her actually getting scared a moment. If Hisako can feel who is inside, she would feel there was someone else beside the girl. A demon, stuck in there, neither having full control of that body usually.

Meanwhile, in Eden's mind, images of Men with Sword, also crawls into her mind and she ends up falling on her knees, the images so strong, the fear pushing in all of her fibers.

Storm looks in disbelieve, it looks like Eden was in so much trouble, but he stays silent. He's a fair cat, he wouldn't interfer in a regulated fight, and frankly, even if he would. No thanks, he's staying away.

Eden is still on her knees, when it all stops for her. The wall didn't know what hit it with Hisako suddenly behind Eden, but Eden, rolls forward, as if she knew. The blade narrowly missing her, but it's enough. She then rolls back, and flips on her feet, and starts kicking at Hisako's legs. If she has her way, she keeps kicking until Hisako is low enough for her to slam her knee into her nose. Her eyes looking at her, a mix of fear and amazement of what the girl can do.

Edenlith         0/-------/---====|===----\-------\0           Hisako

The good part of a slow-moving ghost girl, was that her reaction speeds left a little something to be desired. By the time Edenlith closes the distance and starts to throw that first leg kick, Hisako seemingly, doesn't even realize that she's being attacked. She is dropped to her knees, and a massive knee strike to her face caused her to sprawl backwards as she landed on her neck. It twists in a horrible fashion as she collapses on a heap on the ground. But there is no reaction of pain, instead the living dead girl just continues to stare up at the gal with the talking cat, her arms starting to push up off the ground like a human's best approximation of a spider.

That seems to work better then Eden expected at the moment. At least in the sense Hisako was down on the ground. However, it didn't look like it hurt too much. It was alright though, she could press on. As she sees her slowly getting up like a bridge... Yes spider makes much more sense, but Eden doesn't always(often) make sense. She goes to her, in her mind, she's going to pick her up over own head, and slam her back down. Maybe that would hurt... maybe that would just piss her off. She could deal with either. At least she thinks so.

Storm while this is all happening, is oddly quiet, watching so intently. If either of the two were watching him, they would see him shaking, but who had time for that.

COMBATSYS: Hisako blocks Edenlith's Power Throw.

Edenlith         0/-------/---====|====---\-------\0           Hisako

The good news, Hisako was light as a feather, could be picked up easily and could be slammed down just as hard. There was a heavy dull 'thud' as her body slammed against the wooden floor so hard that the boards cracked and sent dust everywhere.

The bad news, she was nearly stiff as a board herself, including her hair which was wrapped around Edenlith's wrists and ankles, and the ends of her kimono which were almost unbreakable.

And while she didn't react during the brutal wrestling slam, all of a sudden she 'snapped' back to life as she lunges forward and shoots both of her hands at the schoolgirl's face. Hisako's thumbs went straight to the girl's eyesockets, trying to press in against a certain nerve that is found right above the eyeball. The good news is, this wouldn't damage the eyes themselves. The bad news, the pain would be so excruciating that for days it would feel like some damage -had- been done.

While screaming and pressing her thumbs forward as hard as possible, that jaw extends again, and rows and rows of razor-sharp teeth are revealed. A split second later Hisako attempts to lunge forward and bite across Edenlith's cheek, hard enough to draw blood.

Hard enough to crunch bone, even...

COMBATSYS: Edenlith endures Hisako's Armed Combo.

Edenlith         1/-----==/=======|====---\-------\0           Hisako

To Eden when she slammed Hisako down, it felt like hitting a brick with a brick and as expected a whole lot of nothing happened. She was discovering this girl was full of surprises. Again a mix of emotions into her eyes, ranging from annoyance, to strangely, happiness. At least happiness until Hisako's thumb went right into into her eyesockets. She screamed silently, the pain definitely there, but she didn't defend herself, she took the pain. It didn't stop there however, as teeth went straight into her cheek, blood coming out as it seems she straight up lost a chunk of skin.

Storm sees this, and he can't help but gasp. What the hell is Eden thinking, If there was a time to get out of the way or block or something it was then, but no, she just takes it. SHE TAKES IT!!!!. "Eden!" comes out of his mouth, as if it was going to help with anything. Well it shows he was there. That's something.

Eden in answer to Hisako grabs her left arm tightly. At the moment, she's not trying to push her away in anyway whatsoever. She keeps hold of it, and lets herself fall backward. As she falls, she brings her right leg up, letting gravity do the rest. Gravity working on her, and on her skirt, which very unmodestly shows the black panties she has under. If she has her way, they fall down together, and Eden's foot slams in Hisako's jaws.

Edenlith         1/---====/=======|=======\-------\0           Hisako

Hisako was a crafty opponent, tenacious and vicious in her offense. But she was far from unbeatable. As evidenced by the sole of a black running shoe finding itself against the side of the ghost's neck and jaw. Seconds later the sudden impact is so tremendous that Hisako falls to the side limply, hitting skull first against the wooden floor and seemingly evaporating into a pool of black mud and sludge. An earth worm crawls through the earth that apparently had always been there, while outside the house, the screaming song of cicadas suddenly stops and suddenly plunges the room into absolute silence. For just a moment, just long enough for a single breath.

Then the song continues with a vengeance, and the lights overhead flicker on and off rapidly and the doors open and slam shut repeatedly. It appeared that someone was -angry-. The flickering gets dull when all of the lightbulbs seem to slowly fill with black liquid, until they're full and the glass is cracking. Seconds later they all explode overhead, broken glass raining down over the girl while black 'blood' and electric sparks all threaten to catch her on fire.

From behind Edenlith at the same time, a familiar figure makes herself known. Her bare feet slapping wetly against the wooden floor, shuffling towards the demon-possessed girl with that gradual shamble of hers.

Edenlith         1/---====/=======|======-\-------\0           Hisako

Eden grins as the move she just did worked quite nicely. It's kind of creepy with the chunk of skin missing from her cheek, an the blood running from that wound, but not as creepy as Hisako is, at least to Eden, and even more to Storm. Still watching, his eyes proud she was holding her own against that ghostly girl, coming out of someone's worse nightmare.

Eden cocks her head when everything goes silent. It was just so always there, it felt weird when it just stopped. It wasn't long however, when it just got worse, and she nodded her head, like it was all better.

She looks curiously as she sees the lights are all wrong. When they all starts exploding, instinct seems to take over as she manages to moves around, to dodge all, yes all of the broken glass falling like snow during a heavy storm. Luckily at least Eden didn't try to catch one with her tongue.

With that feat of instinct and Luck done, not seeing the girl anywhere in front of her, she spins around, bringing her fist up, in a sort of back spinning fist across the face if she actually manages to hit.

COMBATSYS: Edenlith successfully hits Hisako with Medium Punch.
? Strange Hit! ?

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////               ]
Edenlith         1/---====/=======|=======\-------\1           Hisako

The punch connects flush, as Hisako's face snaps backwards from the impact and she staggers backward a step and a half. Did this creature feel pain? Was Edenlith's offense having an effect? One thing's for sure, it was definitely pissing the dead Japanese woman off.

She HOWLS in rage and fury, her eyes turning black with glowing white Rings that stared daggers into her opponent that was giving her so much trouble. And then Hisako was rushing in, pouring her face into Edenlith's as if she were diving into a lake.

If this succeeded, the pain would be emmense...the horror at arrows in her own body, the terror at knowing death was around the corner, the sheer sadness at knowing everyone she loved was already gone...that they would not be buried...that there would be no justice to any of this. It wasn't fair. It wasn't fair. It wasn't fair!

It wasn't FAIR!

The sudden departer of Hisako from this body was violent and happened with no warning. Every muscle in Edenlith's body would spasm and strain, her very spine wanting to twist in reaction to repelling this foreign spirit. If Edenlith is not prepared, some bones might very well break even as Hisako slowly climbs back to her feet.

Edenlith         1/=======/=======|-------\-------\0           Hisako

Eden tries to get out of the way, she knew deep down it wouldn't be good to be hit right now. But she didn't get out of the way. Hisako gets inside her, and she gets hit with the pain. The damn pain, as she falls on her knees, curling up. Her body is twisting, bones wanting to crack, but somewhat, as painful as this is, and even more when Hisako leaves her, no bones are broken. But she can feel the soul shattering pain inside of her. A sign appears beside her head "You're pissing me OFF!!!!!"

She slams her fists into the ground, again and again, and again, power seems to come from her, before she settles on her feet, then jumps up and backward. Whatever is not naild down in this room, she throws toward Hisako. The sofa, the table, everything, but the kitchen sink, because they are in the living room.

COMBATSYS: Hisako blocks Edenlith's You Can Be My Trash Can.

Edenlith         0/-------/----===|==-----\-------\0           Hisako

Hisako was slow to react, what else was new? As she slowly rises to her feet, she doesn't seem to react when a plate was hurled and shattered against the back of her skull. She only started to turn around a moment after that impact, when the rest of the furniture in this room was being launched directly at her. Every appliance, every object, everything smashed against her until she was launched backwards under neath a sofa, as it crunched her against the wall and hit so hard the wall itself spiderwebbed and cracked from the sheer impact. She hit so hard that she seemed to vanish.

It was hard to see her at first, but it was impossible not to hear the sounds, the sounds of something trying to walk or crawl. As cicadas were sitting on the nearby windows, flapping their wings, eventually a shadow could be seen from underneath the couch. As that ghostly white skin was more visible, and Hisako was crawling toward the fight. She still wasn't done, it seemed, she still wanted more. She was always going to want more.

COMBATSYS: Hisako gains composure.

[                 \\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////               ]
Edenlith         0/-------/----===|=------\-------\0           Hisako

She manages to grin again, making her cheek bleed more, as it wasn't happy of that movement. Apparently Eden couldn't even make her own body happy. Unfortunately for Eden, she couldn't hold that amount of strength, and it stopped as she lost sight of Hisako. One moment she thinks she buried her. The next, she comes out from under the sofa, and despite her whining body, she runs toward her, and slides down, to hit her in the face with her feet. Apparently Eden thought Hisako's face needed some plastic surgery, and was more than willing being the surgeon of today's little game.

Storm on the other hand was worried even more, not sure Eden could continue for that long. Hisako never stopped. She was the horror terminator.

Edenlith         0/-------/---====|==-----\-------\0           Hisako

From that position, there wasn't much that could be done. The form of Edenlith slid across the floor and the soles of those shoes connected flush with Hisako's face. Instantly she reared up giving a screaming roar, and instantly that naginata was back in her hands. Holding it upside down, she stabbed it downward even as the weapon seemed to 'shift' through time and space in order to stab through the schoolgirl's abdomen and straight through the floor. Basically, a bad situation for Eden to be in.

Edenlith         1/------=/=======|==-----\-------\0           Hisako

She tries to roll out of the way, but instead Eden gets hit straight into her abdomen with the blade. She closes her eyes, the pain very strong in her. She even manage to cough some blood. She gets a look of determination on her face after a moment, and in desperation she starts clawing at what she can reach, hard, with sharp nails, to make her let go of the blade.

Storm has a look of horror at this, and ends up turning aruond not able to watch.

COMBATSYS: Edenlith can no longer fight.

Hisako           0/-------/--=====|

She tries, but she can't keep up, and she ends up passing out a moment, unable to fight any longer.

Hisako stands there, keeping the blade stabbed into the midsection of the demon girl before her. She stands there and endures the clawing and the raking of fingers, Hisako's ghostly flesh tearing and black frigid blood barely oozing while she simply stares down with a passive unblinking expression.

Finally, the girl struggles no more, and then and only then does the ghost's attention waver.

From behind Storm, a hand reaches out to lay atop of that kitty skull. No aggression, no violence, just...contact. Hisako looks down at the beast, while her eyes seem caught somewhere between confusion and recognition. A memory from the past, perhaps?

The sound of sirens interrupts the moment, as the ghost girl is gone. From nowhere, a white hand reaches up to grab that naginata still stuck through Edenlith, and the weapon is ripped out of her suddenly. Then it too, is gone.
