SNF 2006.09 - Rolento vs Mary, Sie vs Megumi

Description: Craziness and explosions as Kensou faces Megumi and Blue Mary faces Rolento in a simultaneous mini-tourney! And then, Megumi faces Rolento, but... (Draw Match)



So, the past two weeks of SNF have kind of sucked horribly for Kensou. Two weeks of matches that didn't happen; the first, with Adelheid, because his opponent /totally snubbed him/, and the second, well... Nobody will ever know. Even Kensou himself doesn't know. But it never happened, and that's what matters. So here he is, already present on the fighting stage, tugging his gloves a bit tighter; he looks focused, ready. Ready to take on the world!

...Or at least take on his opponent. Hungry for victory moreso than actual food, for once. The murmur of the crowd is all background noise to the Psycho Soldier at the moment, he's focused on what comes next. He'll show that stuck-up Adelheid guy. He'll show everybody who doubted him. But, you know, since he's the first one here and the match isn't supposed to start for a few minutes /anyway/, he gets a candy bar out of his pocket, and he starts to eat it. Low blood sugar is the seed of defeat!

Talk about luck. That's definately something Blue Mary wasn't expecting. It's as if the bunny was going right into the wolf's maw. Actually, she finds this incredibly ironic and she's definately looking foward to see if her opponent is who she's thinking. She's been doing a lot of investigation on the man lately, for her client, and if what the SNF has said is true, then she'll have all the proofs she needs to confirm, more or less, his whereabouts.

It just makes the job easier for her. Plus, she's pretty sure she might even get paid a few extras if she manages to give him a pretty decent beating. That's quite a way to be motivated. Mary,s on the stage as well, adjusting her gloves and doing a few last minutes stretch to prepare for the incoming fight. This is definately going to be something. Never mind the other participants -- it's just going to be her and him. Justice Incarnate against Infamy. Just like when she used to be a little girl and played cops. How funny.

Megumi has had a habit of wearing unusual or different attire to each SNF match as of late, but today she's in her typical shorts and short top and makes her way to the arena in her usual fashion by jogging along and waving to the fans. The only stop she makes on the way is to remove a spare wristband from her left arm and give it to someone in the crowd, then jump over to the arena. Rolento should be here soon...but she pays more attention to Kensou and walks up to him.

"Hey," Megumi gives a casual greeting to Kensou. "Normally I'd try to have a slower match with ya, keeping the pace the way I like it. But.../he's/ gonna be here, and you saw the rules, right? First winner gets to rest up until the second match ends." Megumi steps back from Kensou, arms folded. "So whataya say we fight fast and both agree to not drag this out? If we get hit, the hit stands and we keep at it? That way at least he doesn't get the advantage. I'd rather see anyone but him win, y'know? Someone may even get a chance to take him down for good." Clearly, her opinion of Rolento isn't very positive and she's ready to get down to things, arms unfolding as she takes up her usual stance.

With any luck things will not be much worse for Rolento Schugerg, either. He is still recovering from a double threat of both Mike Bison and Mike Haggar; Although it was the former that hurt more, given that a Gigaton through a building trumps Giant Swing by a fair margin. But still, a sleek black helicopter rumbles over the arena, having an ominous-looking chaingun installed to the side. This is actually the only real combat-able vehicle in Southtown still. Slipping out of the side door, a couple hundred feet above the arena proper, an almost invisible black cord is yanked out and attached to his harness. Without hesitation Rolento dives off, dropping like a rock before at the last minute snapping out his arm and yanking his line. This slows him, about a meter from heavy impact, and with a twirl he lands on his feet and disengages the cord.
Unsheathing the worn baton, it is given a solid twirl before Rolento assumes his somewhat lazy battle stance. That would probably look less then threatening to a majority of observers, but that is half the intent. The weapon lazily taps into a palm, scarred countenance squinting at Blue Mary opposite. "...It is indeed Mary Ryan, former Interpol agent of no small legendary stature." Yet that seems to be the extent of Rolento's interest. He looks vaguely bored thereafter, shifting his attention over to Kensou and Megumi as if that pair might worry him a bit more then one of the more popular public fighters opposite. Especially given how much Megumi-kun loves him is ever so apparent.

Mmm, chocolate. Blessed sugar! Kensou finishes off his snack, tucking the wrapper away in a pocket - don't litter, kids! - about when Megumi makes her own arrival. "Uh... Sure, I guess," is his response to his opponent, and he shrugs his shoulders. Well, he doesn't have as personal of a history with Rolento as some do... Mostly because he's never met the guy! Nor has he met Mary, who is also present by now. So really, they're only short one person and hey! Helicopter!

Rolento's arrival is kind of impressive, if you're into that sort of thing; Kensou really isn't. Besides, the dude is mostly focused on Mary anyway. So the Chinese psion is left scratching his head a little, and facing off with Megumi. "Just don't feel too bad when you lose, huh?" he tells Megumi cheerfully, because dammit he's tired of being taken lightly! The problem is, his comment gets drowned out by the sudden squeal over the intercom, as the announcer introduces the fighters to the crowd, and goes over the stipulations of the match, usual announcer stuff. What matters is the single word that echoes through the arena at the end of the introductions: FIGHT!

Kensou is already ready to go when the signal to start is given, and he suddenly dashes at Megumi, leaping completely horizontally at her with his left knee and elbow extended in a simultaneous strike. "Yo-!" he calls, and if he hits, he follows it up by twisting his waist to smash his other knee at her midsection. "Yaa-!!" And then, he finishes the combination with a third strike, continuing to twist around completely in a wide arc, extending his left leg to roundhouse Megumi with his heel. "Uryaa-!!"

It is quite an impressive entrance -- one that certainly can't go unnoticed. It has Mary's full attention, and her hands tighten into fists, her eyes narrow a little as she stares at the helicopter and its obvious equipment. It doesn't look good, and it's all little details like this that makes this guy the more guilty of being who she believes he is. After all, it could have been just some other nobody trying to use his name, right? But once Mary has the chance to have a good look at him, she's perfectly certain he's the one. Without a doubt.

Never mind the other fighter in the arena, this is supposed to be between her and him, and she intents to focus all of her attention on him. "Looks like you've done your studying as well." Mary says, lips curling into a tight smirk, "Well then, guess it's time for me to do what many have wanted to," Mary says as she gets into her combat stance, fingers curling and uncurling almost a bit impatiently, waiting only for that simple word to be said: FIGHT.

Finally, the battle begins. As much as she wants to give Rolento a beating, she'll have to go easy on him -- what if she's too harsh on him and, like a beaten dog, he goes running out of Southtown with his tail between his leg? That'd be a shame, truly. Everything goes against someone like him though, and Blue Mary will be more than happy to oblige.

The blonde woman lunges foward and she attempts to grapple Rolento -- if she suceeds, she'll try to hold him while she delivers a couple of kneeshots to his midsection... And after, like a useless piece of trash, Mary'll make half a turn on her heels to throw him off some distance on the arena.

Megumi gazes up when she hears the helicopter, wondering if... ...yes, it is Rolento arriving, in a rather showy way. The moment he's down, she starts to run at him and then stops herself. "No...supposed to get through him first, then take you down. Kinda ridiculous, but...okay." By then, Kensou's on his way with a knee and elbow. She makes a quick spin out of the way of those, but the other knee hits her in the side glancingly, enough to slow her down. An arm goes up to stop Kensou's kick, taking the impact there rather than on her body outright. "Big talk when our records're about even with one another, don'tcha think?" Then she leaps into the air, inverts, and makes a spinning divebomb at Kensou with an extended fist. Said fist is wrapped in sparkling red energy, aimed to hit his stomach as her other hand goes down to let her cartwheel away upon landing, if all goes well for her.

Megumi's approach doesn't seem to be particularly worrisome to Rolento, but if she had gotten much closer before stopping herself the story might have been different. Returning his attention to Blue Mary, white eyes blink while the baton rests on a shoulder. Darting backwards without much passion, the harness is still gripped and he's doubled over to deliver a pair of kneeshots, grunting in pain before flipping a fair distance away. An unguarded land on his back finishes the encounter, and he's somewhat slow in getting back to his feet. "It seems the only individual not passionate about my presence is the meatbun-eating young man." Kensou is given a sort of lazy gesture with the baton. "No matter. My victory in this engagement is irrelevant. It is simply to ascertain the level of street fighters of a caliber able to potentially interfere in my affairs." Brushing off the front of his suit, winded by a fair amount, something of a smirk is offered in Blue Mary's direction as the baton begins to whirl in a manic manner. "You, Blue Mary, are not one of those people...!" Thoroughly insultive.

Flipping back after his kick is blocked, Kensou lands in a low three-point stance, watching Megumi leap up into the air. Yeah, that's a pretty cool attack... Kensou doesn't really wanna /eat/ it, though. Instead, the divebombing fist and energy hit his crossed forearms, the majority of the force dissipating harmlessly, Kensou's own Psycho Power pitted against Megumi's, and he frowns in concentration. Frowns! Finally, though, he pushes back against her, and presumably the other fighter does her flip back, but whatever she does Kensou tries to get close, hopping off the ground for a quick jump kick aimed right at the girl's face. "Hup-!"

While Rolento's getting back to his feet, Blue Mary adjusts her gloves. Oh yes, she will definately enjoy this -- and Rolento's only adding fuel to the fire, which causes Mary's lips to curl into a smile, "Oh is that so?" She muses, turning her gaze over him. "Well then, allow me to pleasure myself and show you a whole new world of pain," Mary says.
Hopefully, that should be enough to teach him a lesson and not mess with Mary. She'll give him a little lesson about modesty. Maybe he doesn't judge her troublesome, but she'll beat him hard enough that he'll remember her name and face for a long time.
Mary rushes toward Rolento and she tries to swiftly move into his back, a fast and sneaky move to actually wrap her arms around of Rolento's chest. If she suceeds, she'll plant her boots to the ground and keep a good hold, before hefting up Rolento up and arching her back so she can suplex him and slam him down into the arena's ground.

Megumi continues her cartwheel despite Kensou's defense and quick retaliation, his foot barely breezing past her head. It was close, but she rights herself and leaps toward Kensou...or rather, just beside him, as her arm swings out to grab at his neck, hoping to use the momentum to take him down to the ground.

No comment is made about Blue Mary pleasuring herself. Rolento has more class then that. Yet he wanted to goad her on enough to launch an assault, and he seems very aware how much raw pain was dedicated in this particular attempt. Allowing a thin crease of a smile, a skip backwards is done and peculiar adjustment of his stance. He's hefted up with little difficulty, but he lands while utterly limp, and through the entire motion he never stopped spinning his baton. Being able to sustain momentum while being suplexed is no small matter. Upwards he lunges, swiping once towards Blue Mary's stomach to poleaxe her over it, before flowing into two more devastating strikes that sweep first towards her knees and a final swooping uppercut, the rapid-assault of the baton only adding to it. He's worse for wear overall, but that particular trade was probably in his favor. There's no lack of confidence upon his features, slipping away and dropping the weapon to his side.

"Tch," mutters Kensou faintly as Megumi avoids his kick. Of course, he should probably save his annoyance for later, because he's got being grabbed and thrown to deal with! Though he tries to jerk away from the other fighter's grab, he doesn't manage it, and instead he ends up facefirst on the arena floor, skidding a little. Not fun! Getting up quickly though, Kensou lunges at Megumi again, aiming a wild haymaker right at her jaw! "Hyaaa-!!" If he hits, then he launches into a quick combination, with two punches aimed at Megumi's gut, and then a MIGHTY UPPERCUT at her jaw, to knock her her feet dramatically.

Ouch. For a first impression that's just ouch. Something rather bold Blue Mary was definately not expecting. Getting smacked around like that with his baton, the rather and sudden counter he did against her suplex. The onslaught of smashes are enough to throw her back and give Rolento a bit of space for breathing. At least, for a little while.
Mary grunts a bit and she winces, one arm curling up around her midsection. She staggers back and she slowly attempts to regain her composure, glaring at Rolento. She has to calm down a little and focus on the battle at hand. She wants to savour this as much as she can, doesn't she?

Megumi gets up as well, and hesitates for a moment while planning what to do from here. This turns out to be a bad idea, as Kensou's first punch connects with her face and sends her reeling. The lower punches hit as well, but she manages an almost-dodge against the uppercut; it hits but doesn't connect fully, simply knocking her back rather than making her fall. She attempts another leap after that, trying to go over Kensou's head and invert herself while grabbing at his collarbone. High-flying, but it's a simple 'push-down' effort trying to take him back to the ground once more while her legs stand ready to bridge down and let her land smoothly if this all goes to plan.

"Hmmph." Rolento comments, stretching his back and wiping a line of blood from his lips. Blue Mary is probably not aware of just how dangerous this commando can be in a conflict, but such can be easily taught. HAND'S ON. As she gathers herself and summons focus, an almost lazy stroll is taken in her direction, resting the baton under an armpit. "I would expect a former agent of Interpol to have a better grasp of emotions. Yet it is one of many reasons that a female combatant is inferior. With both a lesser strength and endurance, emotional vulnerability, and other -- potentially troublesome physical afflictions," Some things even Rolento isn't going to talk about. "It would be best for you to learn your place in this battlefield!!" And then with remarkable speed Rolento rushes forth, and actually unleashes a dashing backhand towards Blue Mary's face. Trying to pimpsmack her right on the ground, although given the metal strips in his half-gloves, it'd be much worse then it appeared!

If there's anything Kensou has learned from all the times he's fought Megumi in the past, it's this: If she gets her hands on you, something bad is going to follow. So really, it's in his best interests /not/ to get grappled by the other fighter, now isn't it? Still, he does indeed get grabbed, and pushed down, falling backwards... But it's a more controlled fall than Megumi probably intended, and Kensou puts a hand back to stop his fall before it gets /really/ painful, tucking his legs in between the two of them and then thrusting out first one foot then the other, smashing his heels into his grab-happy opponent. "Yo-!! Yaa-!!" Once he's gotten Megumi off of him and kicked her away, well, then he pushes off of the floor with his one hand, flipping onto his feet and back into his stance. "Whew. Scary, scary," he jokes, looking quite pleased with himself there.

At the very least, this time, Blue Mary doesn't seem to react in the least to Rolento's words. Let him come, let's just see how things will turn out. The woman narrows her eyes and she waits for him to come. She's ready, even as he rushes straight for her, to intercept him and show him his place. Unfortunately though, it seems that Rolento's just a little faster than she would have expected, and Blue Mary actually fails to get a firm hold of him. Her attempt was in vain and the smack she's given is more than enough to knock her back just where Rolento wanted, straight down to the ground.

Megumi stays down for a few seconds after Kensou kicks her back, but it seems she overheard what Rolento said. "Y'know...there's no real advantage of being some emotionless robot in a fight." A retort to Rolento while Megumi handsprings to her feet and rushes Kensou head on. Fist raised, Megumi hurries toward Kensou with intent to smash her hand against Kensou's chest as red energy builds up. If she hits, the energy will burst outward like an explosion.

What follows post-smack is an annoying laugh, full of a sadistic enjoyment and arrogant confidence all in one. He's also now rolling backwards at an insane speed, although he carefully allows the initial inertia to carry him. He's not going to be in one fight here, but quite likely two; As such, he had best pace himself. Right when it would seem that Blue Mary is safe however, he slams the baton into the ground, stopping him dead and bending the wooden weapon a fair amount. Before it snaps forward, and bolstered with a leap he's rocketing right back at the opposing girl, frontflipping a single time and then unleashing a full-force downwards smack with his baton right for her solar plexus! Megumi can just /see/ if his calm and calculations are giving him any advantage!

Ha ha ha ha, thinks Kensou; he can see that attack coming from a mile away, it'll be no trouble to dodge! Except that, when he actually /tries/ to, he's about a second too late, and instead he gets blasted with energy! "Argh!" exclaims he, tumbling backwards away from the explosion. That sucked pretty bigtime. "Guess I underestimated ya a little there," Kensou says sheepishly, but already he's running at Megumi again, low to the ground, and when he gets closer he feints a kick... Before going with his actual attack, driving the heel of his palm at Megumi's solar plexus. "Hup-!!"

That's pretty harsh -- looks like things aren't quite going like Mary had expected them to go. He's certainly not someone to underestimate, despite her good start, it seems things have spiced up rather quickly. Mary barely has the time to actually rise to her feet that Rolento's already hurled himself straight at her and he smacks his baton right into her chest, knocking her back a couple of feet. Not only that, but it's quite painful. Mary winces and she staggers a bit, one hand raised up to her chest, as if to make the pain go away from the impact. Her eyes lift up and she takes just a second to glare at Rolento before she makes her come back.
The woman takes a few steps foward and she leaps in the air, performing a front flip to go flying straight for Rolento, drop-kicking him right on his shoulder, "Spin Fall!"

"Should you be doing that?" Megumi asks after Kensou admits he underestimated her. "I'm not half-bad, y'know," she says even while jumping back from the feint-kick and rolling sideways beneath Kensou's punch. She comes out of the roll with a grab at one of Kensou's legs, trying to pull it sideways and up high enough to yank him off-balance. If she manages that, Megumi will begin bending the limb in towards Kensou's head while applying an ankle-twist...a simple but blatant submission hold.

"Mission... completed." Rolento comments as Blue Mary hurls herself in a spiraling dropkick, but it's too late for the girl to do anything about it. He is struck, but he was already leaning backwards; And a truly blasphemous-sized grenade is waiting just below, going off before the other commando can actually land as Rolento rollrollrolls out of harm's way. Which makes evasion impossible! The detonation is probably going to upset Kensou and Megumi nearby, rattling the front rows of people in the audience. Of course, it doesn't stop there. Rolento unleashes three more similar sized ordinance, juggling Blue Mary through the air in a symphony of destruction, Rolento sliding to a crouch as the last flame and smoke whip overhead, and Blue Mary herself would be sent a long distance behind. "Judgement! Grade D! Discipline and mental training recommended to maximize physical ability!" Standing up, Rolento actually sheathes his baton, regardless of the fact that she's probably not /entirely/ out. But no matter what she does, he's won this battle!

Speaking of not half-bad, Kensou pushes off of Megumi when she tries to grapple him. No thanks! "Yeah, well, I--" SUDDENLY, KABOOM! The Rolento-caused explosion totally distracts the Psycho Soldier for a moment, and he even gapes a little. Holy crap, they're in the same arena as a TOTAL PSYCHO. "Hey, Megumi," he says suddenly, sounding more serious than usual. "Whoever wins, they'd better kick that guy's ass." Yeah, that's right, he said it. And then he twists around and tries to kick Megumi right in the head!

What's that? Oh no! And boom, up she goes and bouncing off from one explosion to another it seems, which is pretty much plenty enough to actually drain all that she's left of energy at this point. She may not be able to see through to the end, but she won't let Rolento get away with this this easily.
Blue Mary grunts and she forces herself to her knees, using her last bit of strength to actually performing her last attempt at giving Rolento one last parting gift. She leaps up in the air, as if trying to jump over Rolento and she does quite literally fly over his head. As she does so, she attempts to trap his head between her legs as she passes by, and if she suceeds to do so, she'll simply throw herself back to the ground and force Rolento to make a whole turn in the air, only to have his head slammed right against the ground with the increased velocity of the rotation. Smack. And just for the show, there'll be a rose-shaped burst of chi as he impacts the ground. Don't ask why, it's like that.

Megumi gets the feeling something is about to happen, just after Kensou pushes away. Her head turns toward Mary just before the explosions, and leaps back in surprise. "...Um...If they wouldn't break us up for it, I'd say we should just both go after him." But she's not making good on that idea, and Kensou comes in with a jump-kick.

Megumi catches Kensou at the ankle and begins to spin, actually holding him up in the air by his leg due to the momentum. After a few seconds of twirling, she bashes Kensou down to the ground and lets go of his leg. "Need to finish this quickly, it looks like."

Glancing backwards, Rolento turns towards Blue Mary before she reaches him, removing the opportunity for surprise. She's still coming much faster then anticipated, but the concussion effect of his Mine Sweeper should be more then sufficient to insure she's not going to be in the best of ability. Instead of a delectable leg-grab she crashes to the ground, almost knocking off his beret regardless, as Rolento starts to rollrollroll in another direction. Standing upright, he takes a few heavy breathes, wiping his hands upon the side of his pants. "You have a long way to go before you can hope to put a dent in my empire..." is commented towards Blue Mary, walking over to her and giving a light kick towards her side. The temptation to drop another grenade on her and call it a tip is overwhelming, but outside Kensou and Megumi immediately assailing him, it's doubtless that Terry Bogard is in the audience. So instead he interlaces his arms and watches the end of the fight... Ready to pounce the winner in a heartbeat, helicopter hovering right overhead.

"Aw, cra-" and then Kensou gets spun and tossed, skidding rather painfully along the arena floor once he lands. Ow, man. Ow. "Ugh," says the Psycho Soldier, getting to his feet, shaking his head a little. This is a pretty sad showing on his part thus far, you know? And honestly, he's kinda tempted to actually go after Rolento, and to hell with the rules or the consequences. But... It'd kinda suck if he didn't actually give this fight everything he's got.

Instead, Kensou rushes right at Megumi, gathering energy as he does so. After the past couple of weeks, and most importantly the total dis he got from Adelheid... There's no way he's just going to throw the fight so Rolento doesn't win. Closing in on his opponent, his right hand rears back, palm open... And then he thrusts that hand forward, bracing his right arm with his left hand against his shoulder. And then, well, he unleashes a pure white, spherical blast of Psycho Power, with Megumi hopefully at the center of it. "HAAAAAAAAA--!!"

Megumi advances cautiously on the charging Kensou, knowing he's ready for something big. When his palm grabs her, she lets that happen but swings an arm upward to knock the arm elsewhere just as Kensou's energy bursts out. Not as direct a hit as he might have preferred, and she's still standing nearby, only blown back somewhat by the blast. "Good hit, but...I wanna see if I can prove a point to him." She reaches at one of Kensou's arms, trying to apply a standing wristlock to him in the hopes that he'll give up.

Unfortunately, Megumi is making a fatal misunderstanding about Kensou's character: He doesn't give up. At all. Ever. Seriously, he's been chasing Athena without any hope of success since the beginning of time, pretty much. He stands there, one hand smoking lightly from the force of the Psycho Power forced through it, and he twists his arm out of Megumi's grip. "Then you better prove it to me, first," is his reply to Megumi's statement, and he twists around, throwing out his fists in a whirling attack, first a backfist and the other more of an overhand punch. "Haa-!!"

"Okay," Megumi's reply to Kensou is pretty curt, but a prelude to an effective defense. She catches the first punch and brushes it away, then catches the second and applies the wristlock she was going for earlier, though with enough force to flip Kensou sideways to the ground. It looks more painful than it actually is, and she lets go quickly, expecting a counterattack.

Hello, ground, it's nice to meet you again. Kensou hits the arena floor again, and this time instead of just getting up, he twists and extends his legs, before pushing off the ground in a rising, twisting kick, trying to batter Megumi. He hasn't had too much luck with that so far, but it's not like he's just going to, you know, stop. "Uryaa-!!"

Megumi cartwheels backwards and lets Kensou go right into the air, then leaps up after him. She's aiming to nudge him off balance, trying to hold Kensou in such a way that he's likely to trip upon landing. Just holding onto a leg should be enough to get this, she hopes.

By this point, Kensou's all but done, anyway. When Megumi goes /after/ him in the air, he thrusts a hand out at her to try something, but whatever it is, the world will never know, because he just gets messed up by Megumi's grab, hitting the ground wrong, and this time he doesn't get back up. He's not out cold, but he /is/ out of the fight.

Rolento really did hope Kensou would have done more damage. On top of that, he'd of been considerably less annoying to fight then the other girl. Well, there's no point in stretching out this encounter, regardless. Both surviving parties managed an undeniable victory over the other, even if Megumi was through sustained skill and Rolento was through being tricksy and unexpected. "Laughable performance!" is shot at Kensou, before a couple steps are taken towards Megumi. "I understand your fighting style better. As well as the optimal path to overcome it. You can underestimate me at your leisure, but... Two hits. Will be all I require." The baton is not even taken out, arms behind his back and eyes narrowed. He's giving Megumi the first assault? Hardly. But the same calculating look is in his eyes, that hints he knows exactly what to do...

Megumi lands, poised to finish off Kensou...when she sees it won't really be necessary. So she lets that go and paces off to the side, so Kensou won't be caught up in the second fight; Rolento likely wouldn't have any problems with flinging a few weapons his way if she was nearby. "Two hits...that's pretty arrogant, don't you think?" She's not impressed, and leaps headfirst at Rolento with her body spinning through the air, one energy-wrapped fist extended. She's aiming right for his face, and has her other hand ready to let her do a sideways cartwheel if she lands this as hoped.

Staring intently, as Megumi rushes forward, the exhaustion on her own front seems apparent. The baton unsheathes in a heartbeat, smacking her wrist and directing the punch to the side complete with a pirouette, much akin to a dancer. It's a clean miss that didn't seem to significantly interrupt Rolento's concentration, as he leaps backwards and yanks off a grenade from his harness. "Here is hit one." is added, before the explosive is hurled through the air. Yet something is off. Suddenly his finger jerks upwards, baton guiding the weapon through the air. A wire was attached to the ordinance, and it's path is being guided! The explosion, to top it off, would be considerably more deadly then Megumi might care for. Let's see if his little arrogant attitude is going to pay off or not, shall we?

Megumi probably should have expected something like that, she saw it take out Mary earlier. The explosion sends her hurling right out of the arena (though not the building), landing in a very hurt heap. "...That's one..." Megumi agrees as she pushes herself back up and hops into the arena. "You were always that way, using weapons meant to hurt people. But I'm not down yet," Even though she looks ready to fall over, posture swaying unsteadily. "So come on."

"Hmm." Rolento comments, apparently having not expected Megumi to fall back to the degree she did. A defensive technique is certainly optimal; He can see how she managed to create such a dent within Kensou, who was all pure assault and had little care for forethought and planning. "What is the rush, civilian? I never said the two hits had to be immediate." Stepping back, he similarly seems to gain some wind himself, breathing heavily and beginning to twirl his baton to an insane degree. "As I said, I know exactly how to deal with you... Your method of success is entirely dependent on not being hit. You have at least three high-caliber ways to retaliate to any normal assault, and even methods for recovery. All it will take is another solid impact through your defenses."

"'Civilian', who cares?" Megumi's tired and hurt, but clearly unimpressed with how Rolento is behaving. "Being a soldier isn't some shield for doing whatever you want to people. Rank, weapons, not caring about emotions..." Launching at Rolento again, Megumi's twirling punch is aimed at his chest this time. "They're why you lost in the end!" Perhaps she's misinterpreted what Rolento's goals in the Metro City invasion actually were.

"If you consider shirking all distractions and obstacles towards your goal being a weakness, then I truly pity you." Rolento comments, observing as Megumi rushes towards him rather fast. Once more he interjects, but this time not to such a subtle manner. Forward he rushes, taking the punch to the shoulder but striking Megumi in the face with a rather high amount of force, in an overhand blow attempting to send her into the ground at his feet. "My dream is a utopia. I will endure, and I will survive, until a perfect country for the military man, created by the military man, comes to life. Do not be so short-sighted as to think my retreat was due to loss. In contrast, I retreated... Because I won!!"

And that's precisely what happens, as Megumi is struck to the floor, her consciousness 'exploding' in a haze of pain and blurred vision. But...she's still awake, barely. "Is that what you think people are? Distractions and obstacles?" It's a pretty weak-voiced question; she's hurting. "I used to think like that too, y'know..." Megumi forces herself up to her knees, then backflips away from him and lands in a very tired posture, arms spreading out as she creates a thin energy 'wall' that shoots out, then glides back toward her. "Except for the military part. What good is that? Soldiers like you just fight and kill and ruin things. 'Creation'...you've got to be joking. Soldiers can't create. The good ones can defend, then there's ones like you, and all you do is tear things down."

"...Hmm. You are more resilient then I thought." Rolento admits, having begun to turn away before finding her coming to her feet. In response he unleashes a vicious kick towards Megumi's ribs, trying to knock the girl upon her back with a lot more force then might be expected from such a simple motion. "Yet your hypothesis is correct. I am a soldier with no country. The one I served abandoned me, and tried to punish me for doing everything I could. Why do you think I wish to create one? A place I can again give my life to defending?!"

Megumi's 'wall' begins to shatter almost as if in response to Rolento's kick, fragmenting before he even makes contact with her. The end result is her being kicked down to her knees again, gasping as the energy keeps her from blacking out. "Everything you could...that's exactly it. I don't think I'm going to win this fight, but..." She forces herself up again, "Difference between 'could' and 'should.' Nothing good's going to come out of what you're doing. You need to change before you get what's coming to you..." She tries a very blunt, graceless attack by trying to plow into Rolento and tackle him. "Might not be me, but someone'll get you for the things you do."

"Hrrmph." Rolento comments, reaching inside his vest and pulling out a string of grenades. He was expecting a grapple after the rush, but tackling was probably the best response to it. He's hit, and his sticky bundle instead latches on to the floor. Luckily the pin wasn't pulled, but he immediately shoves Megumi off and gets to his feet, seeming more embarrassed then actually hurt by the exchange. "Do you think none have tried? Let them! My entire life I have been backstabbed, ambushed, assaulted or betrayed. Beaten back and defeated, time and again." There's an almost manic look on Rolento's face, as he spreads his arms towards the crowd. "But I will always get the last laugh!! ALWAYS!" ... Yes, he's certainly one insane aspiring dictator, isn't he? Hahahahaha!

Megumi isn't going to be hard to push away, with how much more physical strength Rolento has. She rolls back and gets up, content to talk for now. "Why? Why were you always beaten and ambushed? Tell me," She's trying to get her wind again, "Did you start acting this way because of all that, or have you always used these kind of tactics?"

"I doubt you are genuinely interested in a psychological exchange." Rolento muses, but he's similarly in need of some extra wind before he engages Megumi a second time. His breath comes raggedly, holding his baton in a loose grip while observing Megumi warily behind those white eyes. "My history is irrelevant. But affirmative. Metro City is only a small piece of the debt America owes to me." Resting the baton on a shoulder, a sigh leaves Rolento's lips. "Let us end this. My assessment is already complete, even if you rebound and manage to overcome me."

Megumi is clearly behind Rolento in terms of fight pacing. "I'm not so sure it is irrelevant. People choose what they'll do, so there's no excuse and I'm not going to just shrug and say you're forgiven because of your past. You're a monster, plain and simple. I'm just wondering what your reason is. Especially since..."

She lets Rolento say his piece, then rushes him. "I don't care what your 'assessment'," she mimics his choice of words in a disgusted tone, "of anyone is." This time, she tries to grab at Rolento's baton arm and use it as a leverage point for her to make a ninety degree spin, put one knee out in a kneeling posture, and fling Rolento past her extended leg; an attempt at a classical martial arts throw.

"I am a monster in the eyes of those who cannot see." Rolento comments, quite mysteriously. After all, what he did in the Mekong Delta... Is better left unsaid. And that /was/ when he had a country. Of course he is familiar with such moves, allowing himself to rotate with Megumi before shuffling his feet, taking minimal damage from everything due to flexibility and landing with an extended hand. Which is used to pivot, whirling around before flashing out with his baton, trying to clock one right into Megumi's face before going back to a crouch. "I care about your opinion... as much as you care about my utopia!"

Megumi snaps back, "You're a monster, period." But that's about all she has to say to that; it's not a very eloquent rebuttal and probably does nothing to affect Rolento. She tries to roll away from Rolento as he swings his baton, and winds up being struck regardless, crying out. "I care about your utopia," Megumi manages. "Rather, I care about what would happen if you actually made it!" Moving more on emotional drive than any real physical stamina, Megumi launches herself at Rolento once more. Same as before, she's twirling and aiming to drive an energy-wrapped fist into him, but this time she's aiming lower, at a knee.

Smack! Finally that maneuver works on Rolento, and his knee obediently crumples a fair bit, but he didn't have far to go down. Yet he's much more resilient then average in terms of psycho power, which Megumi probably notices. It might be his rigid thinking, lack of passion, or a number of things, but it was little more then a love tap. "Hrrmph. Well, you should be happy to know. That the U.S.P.L. was founded... Because I am one step from my perfect country. It is the herald to a new era." He stands upright once more, even without any lack of wincing. Now he is aware of what she's trying to do, but whether it will suffice is questionable. The fight is certainly dragging on, however. But make haste slowly is the best motto, correct?

Megumi lands smoothly, definitely exhausted but managing to keep up a pace her body can manage for now. "Well...I am happy. Just not because of anything you're doing." She steps in to grab at his non-baton hand, hoping to peel the fingers downward and bend them in toward the knuckles of that same hand. A basic submission hold, one unlikely to actually make Rolento give up...

There wasn't even the slightest attempt to evade that particular maneuver. The better bet is to actually snap out his other hand, and grab hold of Megumi's own wrist to prevent her from getting away. If she manages to get to a certain position, then his ability to properly reciprocate might finally be the end of him. One leg swoops up, aiming to hit the girl right in the face, a long and swooping spiral. He's tired enough that even rolling around is a questionable endeavor at best, which is when you REALLY know that Rolento is in a bind! Time to end this!

And in retaliation for the kick, Megumi tries to grab that leg and jump upward, past Rolento. If she can carry the leg with her, Rolento will be driven to the ground.

The grasp leg twists in an attempt to knock Megumi over, while in the same gesture allowing Rolento to rollrollroll himself once more, sliding to a stop and then hurling himself at Megumi, every ounce of his strength and speed focused like a laser to land this final blow!

Megumi is of the same mind as Rolento: End this now! When he vaults at her, she waits and catches him by the arm, starting to twirl...and eventually flinging him away, panting afterward. That had to have finished him, she figures...but tries to keep her guard up just in case.

Gripped and whirled through the air, Rolento slams into the ground with a hiss of pain, for a few long moments utterly limp. But then he shoves himself to his feet, gasping for breath and slipping backwards. "...This engagement is utterly meaningless. I doubt either of us care about the monetary advantage." He's obviously on the brink of death, but so was Megumi due to Rolento's minuscule miscalculation. There is no grand plan or scheme this time around... But it's looking like /neither/ of them might manage anything. Yet the advantage, once more, is in the commando's court!

Megumi keeps her eyes on Rolento, realizing that she's managed quite the comeback; he's as exhausted as she is. And when he mentions how pointless this is, she's conflicted. "I... ...I think I agree. Even if I take you down, I don't know if I even have the strength to finish you off. With the way this is going...no matter who wins, we both lose. I hate saying this, but..."

"Hrrmph. Acceptable." Rolento muses, stepping back and sheathing his baton as well. From the helicopter above, a line descends once more and is immediately gripped. "Although your victory is due to a miscalculation, do not expect to have better chances in a second encounter." And then upwards he is tethered, given that even if Megumi isn't apt to take advantage of a weakened Rolento, others might. Slipping inside, one of his men asks if it's acceptable to unload with the minigun. But it is waved aside. "There is no advantage to demonizing myself before civilians. Full retreat." And with that the helicopter rises and turns, beginning to ascend and attempt to fly out of the arena overhead, outer door sliding shut with a clunk.

COMBATSYS: Rolento has ended the fight here.


Megumi relaxes as Rolento starts to rise. "Just shut up already. I don't care about your ego or your calculations or you being some sort of fighting robot..." She is however envisioning the exact same thing one of the copter crew is; potential for weapons fire. If she was more rested up, it would be pretty casual to swat it out of the sky. But right now? Well, there is Kensou. Megumi heads over toward him to make sure he's okay; Rolento strikes her as the type to toss a few grenades down as a 'going away present.' "You alright?", Megumi asks simply. The spectators may not be happy at a Draw outcome, but this is one of those rare occasions where playing the crowd doesn't interest her in the slightest.

As for Kensou, he's still there, but he's at least off the actual arena stage; he's managed to get down to the floor below, where he's sitting against the stage. Owie. "Huh? Oh yeah, I'm fine," he replies to Megumi, with a sheepish laugh. He certainly seems okay, except for the whole part where he done got beat up.

Megumi seems okay too, except for the whole part where she got whacked in the head repeatedly and hit by extremely well placed grenades. So her hopping down from the arena is much more cautious. "Good...I'm going to go find somewhere else to be before he starts shelling the place," Nevermind that helicopters don't really 'shell' areas. "But...thanks for the match. Had fun."
