SNF 2005.05 - Vice vs Megumi

Description: Incredible luck for both sides of the fight mark this match between the Scary Devil Lady and Megumi. (Winner: Vice)

A spring afternoon. It was beginning to near dusk, but that was still a hour or two away. Right now, the sun was shining, the sky was blue... and in the middle of the park, there was a grassy clearing, tasteful flower arrangements on the outside edges of it. Also along the outside edges of the clearing, were a camera crew, and rows of places to sit, a fair crowd gathered to watch the fight... although there were still quite a few empty seats. "Laaaaadies and gentlemen!" The smooth voice of a female announcer rings out clearly. "Welcome to the Saturday...night... FIGHTS!" she says, to sparse clapping and a few random whistles. The crowd was somewhat sedate today. That will likely change.
The announcer steps in front of the crowd, her blue-sequined dress catching the light as she whips her hand towards one end of the clearing. "And one of our fighters today is... Vice!" she announces with gusto, as the woman seperates herself from the tree she was leaning against, beginning a lazy saunter towards the center of the clearing, the light breeze tousling her short-cropped hair, as well as the hem of her skirt. She was wearing her usual outfit, but her expression on her face was bored, as she looks to the other side of the arena... she didn't know who she was fighting. Ruined the surprise to learn beforehand, mosttimes.

Well, more like fight. Just one. At least in this location. Megumi was also kept in the dark about her match, simply being told where to be, and when to be there. A member of the security crew is leading her towards the fighting ground set up in the park, and Megumi stops, abruptly, when she sees who's already within. Vice. "You!" It might not be anything important to Vice, Megumi apparently carries some significant grudge. She doesn't even wait for the fight to finish being announced, or for a signal to start the match. She's rushing into the arena and leaping at Vice, body inverted in midair to try and grab Vice by her shoulders as she goes by. If she gets that, her pushing downward, along with gravity, should manage to drive Vice down to the ground. This is /not/ going to be a happy, clean, 'yay everyone is friends' style match.

"And her opponent...! Meeeeeegu...mi?" The announcer shouts, displaying her inexperience at the sudden attack of the pink-haired fighter. Fortunately for Megumi, Vice was caught off guard by the suddenness of the strike, too. Eyes widening as Megumi charges her, Vice brings up a hand to catch the arms of the girl... too late.
Megumi's attack brings Vice backwards, the woman releasing a hiss... at least until the back of her head cracks against the ground, the sound of impact masked by the announcers confused proclamation of, "Fight?"
Oh, but Vice doesn't stay down. In a instant, she bursts to her feet once more, a growl passing her lips as she snaps a hand out for Megumi's or hair, hoping to grab her by that. "Little...!" she hisses as she attempts the move. And should she catch a hold of Megumi, Vice would yank the girl to the ground with a solid tug, then drag her around the grass for a while, before simply tossing her away. Not a clean fight indeed.

Megumi bridges her feet downward to land after planting Vice on the ground, and Vice is...already back up. Wow. Vice will get her hair, which causes Megumi to wince; that's a pretty painful thing to yank around. She's taken to the ground roughly, but manages to break loose from the dragging aspect of it by thrusting her hands at Vice's wrists to end the hold. Could've been far worse, really. Megumi gets up, and it would seem the hostility is mutual. "I still have payback to dish out for what you did!" Another grapple attempt, this one aimed at either of Vice's arms; Megumi doesn't really care which one she gets, so whichever is closer to her. If she gets it, she'll bend it up and backwards at the elbow, and step past Vice, continuing the motion downward to, once again, take Vice to the ground and hopefully follow it up with a quick wrist-lock.

"Payback?" Vice growls, with faint amusement in her alto voice. At the same time, she attempts to bring her arms out of the way, but... Megumi's hands move too fast. Far too fast. The motion was begun, yes, but while Megumi was bringing Vice's arm up and behind her... the woman indraws a breath, and then, with a roar, brings her arm back forward, pulling her arm out of Megumi's grasp... but twin pops were heard. One from Vice's wrist, and the other from her elbow, the wince on Vice's perhaps-beautiful features a testament to how Bad a idea that was.
Spinning around on one heel, Vice lifts a foot as she spins, a snarl on her features. "I LOVE PAYBACK, FILTH!" she shrieks as her foot rockets towards Megumi's side. But mid-way... a sheath of blue-white energy springs to life around her foot, cutting retina-searing trails through the air on it's path. "THERE!"

Megumi lets go of her only semi-successful grapple, realizing Vice has managed to get enough leverage to reverse it. That won't be good if she keeps with it. ...Seems neither of them are planning it, as Vice tries to kick Megumi in the ribs. Or rather, kick near her and let the energy cut her. Megumi makes a long spin aside from it, twirling away. "Filth...yeah, that sounds about right. But..."

She thrusts a palm out, a hand-sized, sparkling red ball forming and shooting out towards Vice. When it's close enough, it explodes in mid-air, spraying itself in the hopes of catching Vice. Quantity of hit instead of quality of hit, perhaps?

Snapping her foot back towards her other as Megumi spins out of the way, Vice's wild and unsteady eyes refocus on her oppenent... just in time to spot her tossing the exploding energy towards her. It was too fast to dodge. Too much! Attempting to snap her arms up to guard against the blow, Vice brings her hands up, swinging a palm out towards the ball... right before it explodes, drenching the woman in energy. Throwing her torso back, Vice holds her arms out to the sides as the energy batters her lithe body, Vice releasing a high-pitched screech, some of the members of the crowd wincing at the sheer pain hidden in that sound. But when it stops hurting, Vice opens her eyes again, breathing heavily as she stares across at Megumi.
Indrawing a deep breath first, Vice releases it in a shout as she charges Megumi, bringing a fist above her head. "DIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEE!" she shouts as she brings that fist down with all the power she can muster, hopefully impacting the girl on the head, or shoulders.

Vice             1/-------/=======|=======\=------\1           Megumi

Die? Megumi just might, if she keeps being hit by things like that. It's a very ...brute-force technique. Unrefined. But 'brute force' seems to work on her just fine. When Vice shouts, Megumi...freezes up for some reason, as if shocked to hear that. Shocked enough that Vice socks her a good one, and sends her crashing straight down to the floor. She actually seems /surprised/ to find herself on the floor, sounding more dazed than hurt. "Where...damnit, again?"

But 'hurt' definitely applies. That was one amazingly strong blow to her skull, and she has to throw up a rather blind, flailing defense with her arms while she's getting up. Something to prevent Vice from capitalizing on the injury until Megumi can stand up. Once she's up, she backflips away from Vice and throws her arms wide apart to create a thin energy wall, about half as tall as Megumi herself is. It goes out, then begins floating back to its creator...

Now that... felt good. Purring to herself as she brings her fist back up, Vice crosses her arms quickly before herself, in defense against the flailing arms. Some of the blow connect, but they were too glancing to even dent the woman. "Not GOOD enough!" Vice spits, lunging forward... until that wall of energy springs to life, the woman sliding to a halt a mere meter away from Megumi. Throwing herself to one side, Vice begins to slowly back away from Megumi, her narrowing dark eyes locked on the girl, as she waits for... the wall to explode or something. And waits... and waits... continuing a slow, backpedaling step.

COMBATSYS: Vice focuses on her next action.

That's not too far off the mark. It doesn't explode, but it does begin to lose cohesion as it floats back to Megumi. Well over half of it just splinters off and vanishes ineffectively, leaving a very tiny amount left to wash over Megumi. It doesn't look like it did much to help her. "I hear that one a lot too..." Megumi's lost a lot of her 'fire' by now, looking a lot more quiet now. Resigned, perhaps.

But still trying. She needs to get back in close with Vice to continue this. "Spiral..." She dives towards Vice, body twirling headfirst through the air, one fist extended with a bright red glow around it, "Knuckle!" Her aim is to plow into Vice, probably in the stomach area, and ideally land with one hand on the grass so as to start handspringing upright...

Vice             1/-----==/=======|=======\==-----\1           Megumi

Narrowing her eyes at the girl at both her comment, and the strange "attack" she did, Vice continues to look wary. At least... until she sees the look of resignation on the girl's face. In response, Vice's smile twitches unto her lips, and grows larger, a deep, dark chuckle leaving her as she straightens her posture, the chuckle beginning to turn to a sadistic sort of laugh. At least... until the knuckle in her belly stops that sort of thought.

Releasing her pain with a hiss, Vice leans forward over the blow, looking down at the spiraling schoolgirl. Attempting to quickly snap her hands down, before Megumi can use the handspring to get out of the way, Vice attempts to grab her around the hips, lift her a over her head and turn her upside-down, if necessary, and then smash her into the ground, head or shouldersfirst. At least, that was the plan.

The problem with that that Megumi has a hell of a time getting herself upright before her opponent counter-attacks. Such is the case this time. Megumi is caught the very moment she finishes flipping herself upright, and Vice plows her head into the grass hard. That's another head-hit on top of the one she already took...

"I'm not finished yet," Megumi mutterrs as she rolls back and gets up, then makes a quick lunge at Vice, aiming low to grab her ankles. If she gets it, Megumi will yank back hard and begin spinning, raising Vice up once, slamming her down. Raise again, slam again. So on and so forth while twirling around, until she'll toss Vice away after a few repetitions. That's the plan, at least.

Vice             1/=======/=======|====---\-------\0           Megumi

Whilst Vice wasn't the heaviest girl around, the fact that a mere -child- could heft Vice off of her feet caught the woman off-guard. The fact that she was tossed around, and bashed against the ground did nothing good for her, either. Landing in a heap of limbs, Vice takes a few moments to rolls unto her hands and knees, and spit up a glob of blood. But no sooner than she does so, Vice was already getting to her feet again. Although... she was much shakier on her feet.

"Little girl, little girl..." she coos, beginning a sorta-unsteady run towards Megumi. "What THE HELL IS YOUR NAMMMMMMME!!" she shrieks gleefully, as she skids to a stop near Megumi, throwing herself backwards in a sort of backflip. A perhaps-confusing move, but Megumi and the audience would learn the significance soon enough. As VIce's feet pass the girl's neck, she attempts to lash out her feet, and grab her neck between her ankles, yanking Megumi off of her feet, before pulling her over her head, completing the backflip after smashing Megumi's head into the ground. Then, chuckling darkly if she got that far, Vice would complete the move twice more, before simply... stepping unsteadily away from the fallen Megumi. -If- she got that far.

Megumi isn't a child. Perhaps by Vice's perception she is, however. But she's got a very good grasp of how throws work. How to use leverage beyond what her muscles would generally let her do. She's tired after her display of treating Vice like a doormat, and makes a very clumsy effort to reach out and grab Vice once Vice stops in front of her. Well, that would've worked if Vice were staying still. The backflip takes Vice behind her and her neck is caught. /Another/ headhit. The first one in the set happens perfectly, and hurts. The second one she manages to brace for, and it hurts a lot less. The third one...she manages to wriggle free from and fall to the ground harmlessly in mid-slam-attempt. "You can't even remember...? Even!" Megumi's answering the question very late, and cutting it off with a frustrated noise. She gets up and thrusts her palm out again, creating another small sphere. It goes out, and past Vice so as to explode behind her. A trick she's done several times, but she's not certain if she's tried it on Vice in particular yet. It's worth a try.

Yes, in the eyes of the Orochi woman, Megumi was still a child. Of course, anyone that looked young was dubbed "child". Vice just wasn't complex unless she had to be. Again, the energy ball flies towards her, impossibly fast. But Vice knew better this time. Sprinting -towards- it, then a little to one side as the attack passes her, Vice lowers one shoulder as it explodes behind her, turning her charge towards Megumi now, clods of grass kicked up behind her as she moves.

And somehow, someway, Vice manages to say, "Remember what?" in a reasonably calm voice, a moment or two before her shoulder hopefully slams into Megumi roughly, followed by a cackling laugh soon after.

Megumi holds a hand to her forehead right after launching that small energy-orb, as if she'd developed a sudden headache. Well, that'd be understandable on several levels. As Vice shoulder-rushes, she snaps out of it just in time to throw up a hasty defense and try to catch her by the arm.

A hasty defense is not enough. Megumi manages to get ahold of Vice's arm, but does not have enough time to /complete/ her defensive motions. The shoulder smashes into her chest and knocks her down soundly, and....she's not moving. Breathing, yes. But not moving. After a short count by an SNF official, Megumi is declared eliminated. Process of elimination would suggest that Vice has pulled off a rather rough victory.

"...10!! Megumi is down for the count, leaving Vice the win...ner?" The female announcer says, beginning smoothly enough, but again, she shows her inexperience in announcing, as Vice throws herself unto her front soon after the end of the count, right next to Megumi. A wide grin was on Vice's face, but before the medical staff could drag Megumi away, Vice slips a business-card shaped piece of paper into either a pocket on Megumi's outfit, or her hands.

And then, without further ado, Vice would get to her feet, her expression seeming to rapidly twist between anger, and amusement, her stumbling steps propelling her out of the clearing. She was... confused, and feeling good. Watch out, Southtown.

COMBATSYS: Vice has ended the fight here.
