Description: In this matchup, there will be posing. The banchou of Seijyun High will clash with the NESTS Cyborg in an epic confrontation! In an Inconspicuous Warehouse. Watch out for steamrollers!
Warehouses made for great arenas. %
Ristar 2022 needed good venues, and warehouses worked. High occupancy means that you could get a lot of folks in, you just had to set up some stands. Not hard to get a team to set up a bunch of stands. Easy safety access to in and out. You just had to make sure there weren't anything in the middle, and that was the biggest problem with this venue: you had the shelves still in the middle. They were, well, mostly empty. But it meant that there were blind spots from the audience. Places where dirty tricks could be made. What was worse, was that most of the stuff that was on the shelves were stacked up in the corners; if the fight got to the edge of the 'arena' then it was going to be smashing into the warehouse goods.
Mitsuru wasn't too worried though.
Mitsuru Tokugawa is a tall, muscled teenage girl. She has long black hair reaching down to her waist, and reddish-brown eyes. She is of a lean stature, only accenting her muscles and height with an awkward gangliness. Keeping a nearly perptual scowl, she has a little nose and wide mouth, which is almost always in a sneer or a frown. Mitsuru eschews makeup, giving herself a somewhat tired look. She has a small black beauty mark by her left eye. She is wearing a cross between her Seijyun Uniform and a gakuran. The uniform bits are a white blouse, tie, and tartan skirt. The jacket itself was cleaned, bearing the metal epaulets upon the shoulders. She wears her school shoes, simple flats that are clean. Adorning on top of her head is her prized commisor cap. Delicately torn in the back, she allows it to mingle with her hair; the cap is likewise bears a golden button and polished gold metal plate above the brim. Her wrists are bound in white tape, and she is gnawing on a piece of hay.
She found it inside one of the open crates.
Striding through the shelves, she looks around warily, trying to get a sense of the layout. "Yare yare daze..." She mutters to herself. "They are going to make us slam into these shelves. This is going to get out of control fast, and the crates too." The judges take their positions, while the audience chants and cheers. Mitsuru rolls the hay in her teeth. "Well, Steve's probably watching though. So I need to do better than last time! But I thought Kanzuki were tacky." She giggles, giving a little 'mo ho ho' to herself.
"Bernsteins are always the worst of the new wealth..."
A warehouse to fight in. That was fitting for a 'girl' like her. It looks like it was fitting for her opponent too. Earlier, Blossom drove there on a motorcycle and walked inside. When she saw Mitsuru, she studied her. She was not worried per say. She was curious. You're going to fight someone, you observe them.
Blossom doesn't look like much. She has long wavy light brown hair, with teal looking eyes. She is not very tall, at 5'5. Her thin yet curvy body doesn't seem too threatening either. She is currently wearing a slighty green, almost white tank top. She's also wearing blue jeans, in a mix of form fitting yet allowing movements. She also has a brown leather belt and black leather boots.
Once she's done looking at her opponent, she's looking at the place, at the audience. She is not showing much of any emotions right now, one way or anything. She's pretty much only analysing things. She is, however, ready for her match.
Mitsuru turns at the sound of the motorcycle.
Waiting, she looks at Blossom as she walks in without a word. She looks up and down on Blossom, her lips curling into a pout. "What the heck are you?" The teen blurts out. "Some kind of biker babe! Are you a Bosozoku? Did you come here on your bike? Did you build it yourself?" Mitsuru was sounding less tough and mean and more fangirlish as she asks more questions, her expression unconsciously growing brighter and brighter. "Do you travel around everywhere? Do you have a gang? Is it a biker gang? Are you the boss of it? Or are you a lone wolf who plays by her own rules-"
She suddenly starts coughing, her expression scrunching back up again.
"Yare yare daze, I mean, I don't have time to go yapping with you. I'm here to fight! And you're in real trouble. I'm Mitsuru, and I'm one of the strong silent types who don't put up with shorties. I bet your boyfriend brought you here! On a scooter!" Mitsuru sneers at her own insult, imagining it to be very cutting. She brings her arms up, holding them wide apart in a straight-backed stance. "I've trained with a real boxer now, so you better watch out." She looks over to the judges, and then back to Blossom, lifting her chin to add an accent to her sneer. Mitsuru doesn't have her guard up.
Wait, hang on-
Yes now she remembered to bring her hands up in a peek a boo stance.
Blossom gave a hint of a frown at one point. There was so many questions. Like the people typing on the computer so fast. All hear are a machine gun of key sounds, and all you want to do is... She ends up saying. "I am alone." As if that explained all the questions Mitsuru just asked.
Then there is more yapping about some things or other. Tap tap tap. More annoying sounds. She would like to care one way or another, but beside annoyances, she could. She didn't even lift her arms yet, but she was ready indeed, if only the judge could say the word... "FIGHT!"
COMBATSYS: Blossom has started a fight here.
Mitsuru scowls, as she stamps towards Blossom. She -moved- like a brute, though being only 5'10 made it, well. She wasn't that filled out either. The lanky teenager was stamping towards Blossom, as the fight was called out. She makes some jabs in the air, testing out her own strength. "You're alone probably cause you are too cool! I mean! Because you, um, you don't take baths!" Mitsuru was having trouble finding ways of being contrary. It helped her fight, but she couldn't help think the -idea- of someone like Blossom is really cool. "But you just keep blabbing! I'm going to knock your block off!" Mitsuru finally lashes out. Her stance starts out embarrassing, a pair of flailing swipes with all her weight behind them, unsteady and brutish. But after the second swipe, she seems to remember something. Fixing her stance, she adjusts, tightening up into a swift left jab, followed by a body blow with the right. Less weight and power, but more control. A pacing shift between the two attacks.
WHile she tries her best to look fierce.
COMBATSYS: Mitsuru has joined the fight here.

More yapping, but Mitsuru was kind of funny. Not that it would reach Blossom's face, but deep inside, she could feel something. As for the look, she might not be done filling out yet, or growing up or something. She still was taller than Blossom was So that was something.
"Go ahead, knock my block off." She said kind of a neutral tone at the moment. She simply observes her, until the hits start coming. The brutish unsteady strikes are easy to move out of the way. After that, Mitsuru changes, and hits with more control. For those, Blossom uses her arms to block. She feels a slight pain in them, but it's more a feedback than anything at the moment.
"Not bad. It's my turn now." She then unceremoniously, send a left palm toward the girl's chest. Nothing too fancy. She's just testing the girl's defenses.

MItsuru begins to get more outraged.
As the opening attacks come out, she seems to have her usual level of perturbed. But when her Steve Fox special was blocked, she actually -huffs-. "Not bad? THat's- UNGH!" Mitsuru had another rebuttal, but when the left palm launches out, it strikes her squarely on the scar underneath her blouse. She whines as she stumbles backwards, tripping and falling into the first level of a shelf. Curling up into a fetal position for a brief second, she unwinds, grabbing the edge of the shelf. Rising up, she stares MURDER at Blossom. "You dumb bunny! Don't you know-"
"Aieeenaaaaa" She whines as she bumps her head on the second level of the shelf.
Grabbing her head, she stumbles out from under the shelf and starts lurching. Releasing her head, she -screams-. Stampeding towards Blossom, she hurls out a wild roundhouse, followed by a heel drop. She finishes by attempting to -stomp down- on Blossom, face red, her face contorted in rage. "You DUMB BUNNY! You think you are so cool coming in on a MOTORCYCLE and being ALONE!?"
"I bet you think you're BETTER than me!"

Apparently she stopped Mitsuru from speaking as her attack goes through. Then all that happens to the girl from that simple hit. She can't help it, her lips curve slightly into a smirk. I mean if falling into a shelf wasn't funny enough. Slamming her head on the shelf above was. That fight made her feel things again, or perhaps it was simply Mitsuru who did that.
Then, Mitsuru is not discreet at all. Screaming, stomping, wanting to kill her and yelling at her. Yeah typical. Typical for human people, not Mitsuru in particular.
A round house comes toward her, head, and she moves it back just in time, almost too close for comfort. When she does her heel drop, Blossom brings her hands up to simply stop it without doing anything else to it. The stomp comes, and this time she has to use thrusters in her feet, helping her roll away, but burning her boots in the process. "That was a lot better. I like you Mitsuru." It was hard to know if she meant it, or just said it.
"My turn now." Then Blossom opens her hand and a hole opens up in it. She extends her arm toward Mitsuru and a laser comes out of her hand, shooting toward the girl.

Mitsuru 0/-------/---====|==-----\-------\0 Blossom
"Your turn now-"
Mitsuru squeaks out loud. She was still processing that Blossom -liked her-. Was that why she was alone? Was she hitting on her? Of course she dodged her anger but she was now blushing. She was -angry- and embarrassed. But then the -laser- comes out. That completely changes, because when she sees the blast, she barely has time to punch the laser. She deflects it, a surge of her own silvery energy helping as she staggers backwards, hitting her back against the shelf support. She leans on it, eyes wide.
"Are you like some kind of robot? Is that a chi technique? Are you a robot biker babe. Are you like Rudol von Stroheim? Like see there is this comic called Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, there is this german, and well, he's a nazi. I mean." Mitsuru tries to be mad some more but she struggles, being -way- too excited now about fighting a robot cyborg person. "I mean oh my gosh, how did you do that laser? I mean, the best I can do is this thing, I mean, look at this!" Mitsuru goes into a horse stance, and starts to clench.
And the air around her begins to distort.
Silvery energy starts up at first, before merging into flickers of nothingness. And it was best to describe it as nothingness. To look into the energy, and best understanding the infinite void of nothingness. Mitsuru was tensing up, trying to channel it. "I mean it's pretty cool right?!" She interjects. "I taught it myself! Are those robot lasers or like people lasers? I mean, I saw a-" The girl suddenly frowns. "I've seen -DARKSTALKERS- shoot lasers too." She trembles as the energy flares up stronger.
"Are you one of those monster biker things?!"
COMBATSYS: Mitsuru gathers her will.

Mitsuru 0/-------/-======|==-----\-------\0 Blossom
Blossom shouldn't have said anything. This is going to be along fight. Maybe it will push her to do even better. So much thoughts going in her mind. It's still cool when Mitsuru deflects her laser though. So the girl has Chi or something like that. It's good to know.
Then the questions come at her again, from everywhere it seems. "Human Cyborg" She decides to let out for the girl. Nothing more, nothing less, though she could be a robot with a little part of humanity left instead. Or just a perfect mix of the two. As she said what she said, the hole in her hand closes, but the damage to her boots remains.
She is curious when Mitsuru wants to show herr something and in the middle of the fight too. That's going to be cool. A big attack? Maybe a sort of silvery laser? She can't help but watch her, feeling something going on, but only for a brief moment and then nothing, but too much nothing. It was weird, and it makes Blossom wonders. It can be seen a little in her eyes, but she does not say anything or answer anymore questions to the girl.
When it seems done, she walks toward the girl, perhaps to tell her how great she is or something... "You're a big talker who can do some cool stuff." She then brings her hand to Mitsuru's face, and pushes her backward if she can. Nothing fancy, nothing too painful, but perhaps a little reminder a fight is going on.
COMBATSYS: Mitsuru just-defends Blossom's Dismissive Toss!

Mitsuru 0/-------/-======|==-----\-------\0 Blossom
It was a squee. Mitsuru was literally squeeing. The bancho persona was gone as she was just gushing over the robot. "Oh my gosh! THat's so -cool!- Are you like a Terminator? Do you ride a bike around because you are looking for your maker? This is amazing!" She was so up in with the gushing that she doesn't seem all that aware when Blossom reaches for her face. IN a flicker, a moment of instinct comes over her as she reaches up. Still wreathed in void energy, she was moving with the energy. Leaning her forearm on it, she pushes down and over, guiding the shove straight into the supporting framework she was leaning on. The force is enough to start the shelf to tilt over... and fall towards another shelf. It leans on it, not quite knocking the next set over.
Looks like the fixtures weren't up to code.
Mitsuru stumbles around behind Blossom, still not quite sure if she understands what's going on. "Um, uh. Did you do that? Did I do that?" She was still bright-eyed and happy, almost childlike in her wonderment. All around her, the silver and hollow energy were surging over her. Her growling tone was replaced with almost a princess-like air. "I apologize for talking so much. I am just ever so amazed by such a unique opponent!" She coughs, and gives a growl. "Too bad for you, that I'm a Tokugawa! And that makes me the strongest!"
ANd she begins to punch.
"oraoraoraoraoraORAORAORA!" She chants to herself, grinning with a renewed spirit. It was a gatling gun of punches, a rapid-fire chain of them as she punches and punches. THe barrage eventually breaks as she attempts to throw out a finishing uppercut, to perhaps try and knock her up and into the half-fallen shelves.

Mitsuru 0/-------/--=====|===----\-------\0 Blossom
Blossom is surprised at the turn of even the shove takes. The shelf took the brunt of the hit and that wasn't herself doing it. It was Mitsuru. "You did that." She confirms to the girl while ignoring the question if she was a terminator. Though she felt that way at times.
Then apologize from the girl comes. She was something else. She never quite met an opponent like her either. Not that she had many. She doesn't have time to think about it too long as punches come her way. Not really thinking about it as she again brings her arms in the way to take all those hits. The uppercut does hit, however, but she doesn't go up as one might expect. She's heavier than she looks at first glance, but she does go back enough to hit the shelf and help get the second shelf down. A domino effect then goes for a few more shelves.
"Ugh, ok. You can hit. Let's see what you can do now." She takes off in the air, with the boosts in her feet, feeling the uppercut more than she wants to admit, and realizing she's talking more than she should too. Suddenly she flies down toward Mitsuru, arms extended, trying to tackle her to the ground with force.
The attack would have a weird feeling to it, a chi that wasn't part of Blossom usual arsenal, pushing through for that moment only. Even Blossom was confused.

Mitsuru 0/-------/=======|====---\-------\0 Blossom
Mitsuru's face turns red again.
For someone who did things without thinking a lot, she didn't always like the idea of doing her best stuff when she wasn't thinking about it. She wanted to always be in control of herself, especially when she did cool stuff. But the thought of it is enough to distract her, especially as the shelves continue to fall over, leaning on the next, leaning on the next. "Ye-yeah I can hit, I mean, I'm tough-" Mitsuru tries to -catch- the charging Blossom, the cyborg boosts running right over her. She can't stop the full force of the cyborg, hitting the ground hard in a tumble as she passes from one row into the next on the shelves. Groaning, she stands up. She wasn't mad though.
No she was gushing again.
"And you can fly too?" She squeaks loudly. "Oh my gosh! That's so -cool!- Why are you like this? Why are you a cool cyborg? Is it a happy story?" She lowers her voice as she eases up in a stand. "Is is a sad story?" Mitsuru tightens her fists, the bruises now beginning to reveal themselves on her body. BUt her spirit was even higher than before. She climbs up a bit to the second level of a shelf, standing on it to get the high ground over Blossom. And from there? She charges up her fists with just the silver energy. With a leap, she bounds down, flailing her arms, unleashing a barrage of silvery, unstable chi blasts, lacking the nothingness from before. The barrage would be inaccurate, trying to use quantity over quality in hitting Blossom. BUt all while she calls out as she lands.
"Do you even remember your old life before being a cyborg?"

Mitsuru 1/-------/=======|====---\-------\0 Blossom
It seems Mitsuru can take blows. It made it interesting. She felt weird for a moment while doing this attack, but that moment passed, and now she feels like herself again. She does wonder what that was, as her attack works. She misses a bit of what Mitsuru tells her though, or asks rather. Her eyes for a split second get down a bit when there is mention of a sad story. The only confirmation Mitsuru will get about that.
When it's Mitsuru doing her attack, it's another interesting one to Blossom. Still using her thrusters, she dodges much of the inaccurate attacks, except one that gets to glance to her left side. it does a hole in her top, and damage to the skin. It also gets her to land on the ground heavier than she planned to. "You are better than you should be." That's just a stupid thing to say, as she didn't really know Mitsuru enough to know if she should be that good or not.
"I remember" but it feels like a different person. She didn't want to think about that, why did Mitsuru make her think of that. In return for that, she tries to backhand the girl across the face. Nothing fancy again, just something, anything to make it stop.
COMBATSYS: Blossom successfully hits Mitsuru with Swift Backhand.

Mitsuru 1/------=/=======|=====--\-------\0 Blossom
Mitsuru was really trying to be nice.
"TH-th-mhhnnnm." SHe tries to say thank you. BUt she felt very uncomfortable. She was trying to keep going, keep pushing as she lands. Rising up slowly, she stares back as the barrage just wings her. She says she is better than she should be. She felt like maybe she should be insulted. BUt she... she was trying not to be. She says she remembers, and then, the woman charges her. LAshing out, Mitsuru's eyes go wide as she realizes -what- that was. She leans away, instinctively turning away to escape. She barely doesn't. The slap grazes her cheek, not a full impact. But ducking away, she hangs there, touching her cheek.
It felt hot.
". . ."
"How. DARE. YOU!"
Mitsuru's composure completely shifts. Her aura blasts over her, as she stares furiously back at Blossom. The mark was barely red; but it wasn't the mark that was the problem. No, it was the message. "How -dare- you treat me that way! How -dare- you slap my face you- YOU!-" She draws back her -own- hand, ready to slap back. Her aura was changed. Majesty? Or something else. She looks for her words as she looks down on the biker.
"Uncouth PLASTIC BARBIE!"
Her face contorts into a pout as she shuts her eyes, her whole body trembles as she surges with energy until... She relaxes, exhales. "I'm sorry." She states bitterly, her tone going back to a gruff sound. Stamping back towards Blossom, she unleashes a quick one two of punches, her chest still pounding, the girl still breathing harshly as she struggles to keep her outrage down. "I"m sorry you're a person, not a thing." She mutters rapidly, keeping her guard up as she circles Blossom. There were tears in the corner of her eyes, as she keeps scowling.
"I don't like being slapped in the face."

Mitsuru 1/-----==/=======|======-\-------\0 Blossom
It felt like perhaps Mitsuru wanted to say thank you, but Blossom didn't listen at all as she attacked. She didn't get her too well. But apparently she did enough to piss her up. All hell seems to break loose for a moment. She takes all the words from the pissed girl without saying a thing. That's until the ultimate phrase. 'Uncouth plastic barbie.' "You're an overused car horn."
After that she seems to calm down, only to attack Blossom. She moves, not enough to dodge those punches but enough to minimize the damage. "Then I shall not slap your face." Then proceeds to get closer to the girl and instead jumps and tries to headbutt her in the face. specifically her nose. "I respect you." She says when she lands, whether she hits or not. She seems to mean it.

Mitsuru 1/---====/=======|=======\-------\0 Blossom
For a moment, Mitsuru almost blows up.
She was grouchy already, extremely short fused and touchy after swallowing her outrage. But now the biker called her an 'overused car horn?' Well that was a hair trigger. She was already moving in to fight until.... until she goes to headbutt her in the face. She was stunned, but that was before she was headsmashed. She is smashed in the face, her nose bleeding terrible as it is crunched. She stumbles back. And still, she was still not fully aware of what happened. She falls back, landing hard into a shipping crate, smashing into it and grunting. She was cut now, her leg was cut, and her nose was bleeding. But she was still, still not recovered. Because of the three words.
'I respect you.'
Mitsuru doesn't understand. She sniffles, snorting as she wipes the blood from her nose. She stands up slowly, unsteadily. "But you made fun of me." Mitsuru states meekly, as confused as a small girl, tears rolling down her cheeks. But the meekness fades as she explodes in anger. "You are -AWFUL-, you are a BULLY! You don't make fun of people you respect! You make fun of people you hate! Who disgust you, who annoy you! You're -wrong!- You don't respect me! You're making fun of me! Please tell me that!"
"TELL ME HOW MUCH I ANNOY YOU!"
Mitsuru throws herself at Blossom, body flaring with that silvery chi. She was punching, flailing punch after punch at her in a chain. THere was no oras this time. Just her demanding what she wanted to hear. "TELL ME HOW NOISY I AM! HOW I AM A DUMB CAR HORN! TELL ME HOW STUPID I AM! TELL ME HOW DORKY AND DUMB I AM! TELL ME THAT! You can't respect me! You WON'T until I BEAT YOU DOWN into ROBOT HAMBURGER!" She screams as the punches become -claw swipes-, the slashes ripping through the air as the waves of energy envelop Mitsuru. She howls as she finishes by bursting through the barrage of slashes, and unleashes an explosive uppercut, wrapped in her own energy as she surges in. Tears still running down her cheeks, blood still running over her lips. "If you are going to lie to me..."
"Please at least be truthful about it."

Mitsuru 0/-------/-------|=======\=------\1 Blossom
Blossom's attack went the best it could have gone. Blood everywhere and mayhem. She really couldn't have asked for a better results for this attack. She watches her as she's trying to get back to her sense. Watches her as she blows up. Another torrent of words coming her way. She has really pissed the young girl, she can feel it. Her words don't stop even as she starts her attack. She blocks again with her arms, but this time, there is blood on Blossom's end. Lots fo blood as the claws rips through the skin of her arm. Blood and metal under skin because Blossom is indeed a cyborg. She can feel the pain flaring in as her arms on the outside are a mess. When the uppercut happens this time, she is sent into the air and into a shelf. She passes through it to crash on the floor. That shelf wouldn't be of any use anymore, not without some repairs.
She gets up, pain showing on her face, but beside that, not much of any emotions. "I respect you, because you have so much potential. But you still annoy the heck out of me. You can never SHUT UP!!!" As she yells that last part, slight curved blades come out of her forearms from a secret enclosure and jumps at her, using her thrusters for it to be long enough and thens he slashes at her, in a flurry of blows of her own. She was going to give pain back, if she has her way, feeling anger.. Either way, when she is done, the blades go back into the same enclosure they came out from.

"But you don't understand."
"You don't- you don't understand!" Mitsuru would explain why Blossom didn't understand. But the problem was, well. MItsuru didn't understand either. After she finishes her assault, she breathes hard, dragging her stance back together. She stares at that pain. And that pain is returned, as she brings up her hands into a proper peek a boo stance. Like a boxer, she deflects and blocks the blades, keeping the slashes mostly away from her flesh. Mostly. By the time Blossom was done, she lets out a strained whine, her arms bloodied like her leg and face. It hurt.
But why did the respect hurt more?
She always demanded respect, all the time. Everyone should respect her. What was different now? But she tells her she is annoying and she has so much potential. SHe hated that. But why? Why does she hate that? Why does it make her so uncomfortable? She got over her issues, hadn't she. What was the issue here, now. She was finally getting the respect she demanded.
Why did that feel so wrong?
"You're just programmed that way! You don't really mean it!" Mitsuru spits back, as she closes in. She doesn't let her tears and anger mess her up. She launches out straight with the blooded left. It wasn't to be the full force of the attack. No, in the face of the exposed metal, she unleashes a staggering haymaker with the right, attempting to crush through the defenses of the robot. "But..." She sputters, the sheer strain of trying to drag herself out of her own misery worse than anything from the cyborg so far.
"You find my."

She's not sure what she doesn't understand, but she doesn't have time to think about it while she slashes with her blades. She has to give it to Mitsuru. Even with the spins he must feel, she manages to block them all with her arms. It seems to be a problem giving her respect... Blossom didn't care about it though. or did she?
When Mitsuru says she is just programmed that way, that seems to push a very wrong button. "I have my human BRAIN!" She dodges the left, thens he repeats. "I have my HUMAN BRAIN!!" She dodges the right haymaker. It's probably for the best, or it would have been nasty. It's like she's on instinct mode right now, as she is so pissed. "Don't ever say I am programmed!" She is about to punch at Mitsuru in return, but something happens. Instead her laser shoots out at her, messed up with again that weird Chi. It seems to keep popping up. "And what the hell is that! Leave me alone!!" She is too pissed to answer the last question.

And it blasts back.
Mitsuru's combination is evaded, and at least with Steve's training, she isn't helpless. Drawing back into her peek a boo stance, she reads Blossom's anger. She hurt her. And Mitsuru didn't feel any bigger either. When the laser comes again, MItsuru doesn't have much recourse other than -punching- the laser. As the strange energy floods over her, the same hollow energy floods over Mitsuru. Flashes of nothingness overcome her, as the teenager staggers through, having to break into a run to make up for lost space. But she says something clearly.
"I'm sorry." Mitsuru repeats again sadly, as she reaches Blossom. "I don't- I don't mean it. That's why I am hate it. THat's why I hate it!" Mitsuru lurches in, attempting to grab Blossom by the hips and pivot. Should she get enough momentum, she would slam her towards the shelves, to topple -those- over too. "Because maybe, maybe if I am hurting people when I am mad..."
"Maybe I don't deserve your respect!"

Mitsuru 0/-------/----===|==-----\-------\0 Blossom
She was still annoyed, trying to calm down from being so pissed. The laser was really not what she intended to do this time.It just came out. It's like there is something in the air.
She doesn't have time to think about it when she hears the girl say she is Sorry. Not once but twice. "Someone or something is messing with your mind too?" The keyword there was too. Did she really mean that. She didn't have time to think about it as Mitsuru grabs her hips and manages to slam her toward the shelves. Blossom does manage to twist however, to lessen the impact. The shelves don't have the same luck. This warehouse will definitely need new shelves once that's over.
"Maybe you need to love yourself." Again she gets back up. Looks like neither want to stay down. Is it even about the fight anymore? Who knows. She makes her way back to Mitsuru. Once close enough she reaches for her neck. If she manages it, she lifts her off the ground, then starts running toward another part of the warehouse. She runs toward a shelf still standing. She wants to slam her into another it with no intention of slowing down. Though when she slams her or tries to, the same chi is still around, helping her give more impact to it, but also backfiring on her slightly.

Mitsuru 0/-------/---====|=====--\-------\0 Blossom
The shelves take the worst of the impact, but the talk about her mind issue. "There was a Blue Velvet guy. Lyraelle. I've gotten out of some bad places." Mitsuru says in a whisper. "But I'm strong enough to keep pushing forward. I'm strong enough. I'm not going to keep ruining my life anymore." Mitsuru states firmly, as she grits herself. And when Blossom reaches for her neck? When she picks her up to slam her? She was also getting up.
With a hurricane kick.
Mitsuru slams her leg upwards the moment she is slammed in herself, using it as a point of leverage. And it connects; bringing with it enough momentum to send her and Blossom airborne. Up there, and broken away, second hurricane kick is unleashed, carrying her forward to land with a clumsy finish as the nothingness around her scatters around. The impact was consuming chi, absorbing it. The energy nullified and consumed energy. Mitsuru steadies herself out, back aching. Still bleeding. But she was smiling, calming down. Strengthening. "I do love myself. I just have to stop forgetting that I do."
"And stop being ashamed that I do."
"There are people in your life who will want to keep you down. They will want you to keep fucking up. So you can think you are nothing." Blossom manages to say before the kick sends her airborne. The second Hurricane kick makes a piece of metal crack somewhere inside her, around the neck somewhere. She then lands on her back quite hard. That move had done damage that was obvious. Later on the nano would have a lot of work to do, but it isn't going to be now.
This time, she gets up a little slower. "You have to be ashamed of hating yourself. If you don't love yourself, who will?" She ends up back on her feet. If only she could heal during a fight, that would be different, but it wouldn't be fair. She didn't want a win like that. The way she feels right now, she gives the win to Mitsuru. It doesn't mean she could give up. She grabs her own head and yanks, making some metal crack again. "That's better." She then jumps toward Mitsuru again. She tries to smash down on her with her fist as she comes down. She feel so much conflicting things.

"Yeah... I guess you are right."
For an organized fight, there were a lot of highs and lows. Mitsuru felt her wild emotions tamed, under control. She felt more confident, facing her opponent. She doesn't press when Blossom gets up slower, but she does close the distance a little bit. Mitsuru herself was exhausted, bloodied. But refusing to let herself fall down. Her spirit was blazing.
And nothing would keep her down now.
When Blossom comes smashing in, Mitsuru takes a clumsy step to the side, bringing up her bloodied, bruised arms to block and deflect. She actually falls to her knee on this one, slipping and falling over as the force is just too great. Landing on her leg wound a bit, she hisses. But not angry. Not furious. "I should know that better." Mitsuru says, puffing out her chest. "So I will! Thanks! You're not so bad." Mitsuru sticks her tongue out at Blossom. "For a dumb bunny!" Mitsuru wasn't going to make fun of her being a robot anymore. Rising up, she draws back her leg, and unleashes a full forced horse kick straight at the cyborg's center.

"Of course I am right." Blossom says after she has landed, a little bit late. "Never let anyone decide what you are worth. Only you know." Oh look, now she's the one who keeps talking. Shut up Blossom. She doesn't comment the way she has blocked her attack, but it is a good fight for her.
When the horse kick comes her way, she jumps again. Perhaps she really is a bunny, or a kangaroo. Or simply just a crazy lady in a cyborg body. She aims her jump to land on Mitsuru shoulders. If she manages it, she starts punching her head to take her down and pin her to the ground. If she succeeds, she sticks out her tongue. She is quite the heavy bitch considering all the metal inside her.

Mitsuru doesn't mind the chatter, though she does take a little cheap shot.
"Yare yare daze, you sure are talking a lot for someone who is... quiet." It wasn't quite a zinger. As the biker girl bounces at her, she goes up, and the towering teen feels like she can just endure it, and throw her off. It doesn't work so well, as she is outright -goomba stomped- down. Dazed and hurt, she finds herself punched in the head and grounded, crushed and crunched. But not broken. Mitsuru looks as a tongue is stuck out, and Mitsuru actually reaches up to grab it, and pull it. Should she get a grip, she will roll the cyborg off, and keep pulling that tongue, while energy floods over her, the nothingness surging to wash over Blossom.
While smirking, with a toothy grin-
Oh wait she lost a tooth.

Blossom doesn't answer to the attack... no the tease Mitsuru gives her. She simply does her things and ends up pinning her down. Her tongue is grabbed by the girl and pulled on There was no metal inside that tongue and it hurts, but she keeps her body firmly planted on her.
She can feel the nothingness around and she doesn't like it. She has to make her stop it. Stop the throw too for good if she can. She uses her left hand to smash it against the already damaged nose if she can. Either way, she allows herself to get up or be moved once that's done.
Yeah the girl was a good one.

"Hah! Cat got your-"
MItsuru is punched in the face again.
"GAAAAAGH!" She cries out. "Why do you keep hitting my NOSE!" She gripes, as even -more- blood comes out. It was getting really lumpy and crunched. Not a pretty nose. But Mitsuru releases the tongue, holding her face. She breathes hard from her mouth, inhaling and exhaling. She was getting that anger then. But she looks at Blossom, and she remembers. She remembers those words.
And she drives a fist in her palm.
The angry energy is transformed, reshaped. She nods. "Alright! I'm going to be real serious now. THis is it!" Her bonfire of a spirit blazes, as she jumps up on a fallen shelf to leap high in the air. Up there, she swings her leg around into a diving heel drop. She drops her leg down hard, attempting to crater it savagely into Blossom, or the ground around her.

"I don't like your nose. Free surgery now." Blossom was kidding, but it might not sound as such. She is also somewhat proud when Mitsuru manages to turn her anger around. She was confused over that. Why so much feelings for that one girl. It was getting weird.
Her attack is also quite impressive yet nasty as she jumps up on a shelf to attack her. Blossom only just have time to bring her arms up, those painful arms as they are already. She reaches the hit on them, and they hit her head in the process. It does even more damage. She's not down however yet, though it looks closer and closer.
She then cracks her knuckles. "This has to end." There you go, she talks again, bah. She then does a powerful upper kick to spring Mitsuru in the air. If it works then a hole opens up in her other hand and a flame comes out to burn her. She the let her fall to the ground. She then puts her foot on her neck and applies pressure there, to do even more damage. She then let go.

"Then lets end this!"
That was the response after Mitsuru lands, the teenager leaving a tiny crater around them. Blossom cracks her knuckles, and Mitsuru begins to bring her leg around. Waves of nothingness pours all over her now, surging from her heart as the cyborg brings her own upper kick to bear. Mitsuru takes it -hard- to the chest once more, knocking some blood from her lips this time. But the follow up flame doesn't get a chance to break through. She doesn't get airborne by Blossom's choice.
But by her own whirlwind of kicks.
She slams her leg -hard- into Blossom's side, bringing them both up. Like before, it's a one, then two explosion of rising spinning kicks, bringing the waves of nothingness swirling around her. This time, however, she sweeps her leg up into an overhead, before -spiking- it down at Blossom's throat, sending the pair straight back down to the warehouse ground with cratering impact, redoubling the crater before. Mitsuru stands tall, foot on the biker's throat, breathing hard, grabbing her chest where Blossom cracked a rib. She had... taken a ton of abuse. She looks down at Blossom.
Blossom didn't expect to be countered so well in her attack. Kudos to her. There is more metal grinding when Mitsuru hits Blossom's side hard. Then kick hitting her throat finishes her up and her body powers down at the moment. She's knocked out and Mitsuru would be declared the winner. It was official. However, her nano are now kicking in and are taking care of her body. Mitsuru would see the healing happening and would know Blossom was fine. If Blossom could speak and also would want to speak, she would say Mitsuru did an awesome finish there. Yes, this fight, Blossom spoke too much, even figuratively.

Mitsuru narrows her eyes a bit, as she studies Blossom.
The regeneration. She was self repairing herself. But now she wasn't responsive. Was it going to be a trick? Hesitating, she slowly lets the foot off the cyborg's throat... and then-
She is declared the winner.
Mitsuru was dazed, confused. Winner? Well it was the first round. But she keeps looking back at Blossom. She wasn't cheering, or bragging. She was just looking at her opponent. Someone who managed to blow her lid, who made fun of her, and, more importantly, made her confront herself. Blossom might have thought she talked too much. But Mitsuru?
Mitsuru was happy she did, well outside of any fight.
