Description: Following her debut match outside Genhanten, Rainbow Mika receives an invitation to participate in a second match at the restaurant. However, when she arrives she discovers Yun Lee is currently acting like Yun Lee. After the teenager mouths off a bit too much, R. Mika determines that she needs to beat some courtesy into him, but did she bite off more than she can chew?
There are times when Genhanten is calm and quiet. When this illustrious place of business is nothing more than a mere stop for those that have decided it is time to consume some delicious edible arrangements. A place to pause on their way home to their families and friends after working hard at whatever menial and foolish jobs they have decided to waste their lives doing for pay that is never adequate. These are the times that everyone knows and are quite used to, really.
This is not one of those times.
With Yang off doing something boring like meditation or whatever it is that he gets up to when he's not working. With Gen off doing whatever it is that old people do when they are not breathing down the necks of the cool young people that are the future of Kempo. That only leaves on totally awesome Kung Fu Master of Ceremonies to be in charge of the most happening eatery this side of Chinatown, Southtown: YUN LEE.
This hip-hoppin', kung fu choppin', can't stop, won't stop party animal has Genhanten straight BUMPIN'. There's some insane musical abomination that Gen would totally not allow to be blasting through the updated stereo system that Yun has hooked up when he wasn't looking: http://youtu.be/uZHpkqrzeqo. There are speakers hidden all over the restaurant and the music can be heard all the way on the outside. If you're not already in here, you're going to want to be. If the noise level is any indication, anyway.
Yun doesn't know how to act when he's in charge and right now he's on top of one table dancing with one of the hotter waitresses. Whatever /actual/ staff that Gen has hired are running around trying to keep orders going and what not. But, to Yun's credit, the restaurant is certainly making some moolah in this moment. Everybody seems to be having a good enough time. Well, at least Yun is. And really, as far as he's concerned, that's all that matters. He reaches up and twists his cap around to the back so he can get his grind on with Waitress Whatever-Her-Name-Is Li.
Into this mess steps a strangely (well... it's Southtown, so not that strange) figure with a mild look of confusion on her face when she steps in and sees no sign of a ring. Rainbow Mika, clad in full on wrestling gear, looks about the place in an effort at first to find Gen, having briefly met the proprieter among a large number of other faces in the mix of the Southtown Chinatown Business Association following her previous fight outside this very restraunt.
All of the spandex still manages to draw a few stares, and as she steps further into the restraunt, a few faces brighten with recognition from her previous fight. When one young man runs up to go on about just how much he'd enjoyed watching her fight, she's the absolute perfect picture of humbleness, thanking him for bothering to remember her and hoping that he'll enjoy her future fights. She's got to keep the image going after all.
Eventually she manages to make her way to one of the more frustrated waiters, an older man with thinning hair.
"Excuse me, but I received a notice that I was requested to make an appearance here for a fight. Where's the owner?" Her tone is completely polite as she holds out a small challenge letter.
The man looks over the letter for only a few moments before his brow knits into the sort of frown normally reserved for high school principals. "...You're looking for Yun, he's right over there." He motions toward the center of the chaos and starts to let out an unpleasant string of chinese as he makes his way to the kitchen.
The mystery of the challenge letter at least providing a new direction. Rainbow Mika glides her way through the bustling restraunt over toward the table currently occupied the current manager, who will, presumably, be receiving a very strict lecture later on.
"Pardon me... you're the manager right now? I'm Rainbow Mika, I was sent this letter requesting that I appear at this restraunt for another fight. I apologize if this was just a prank. You certainly don't look set up for a match..."
Yun doesn't really seem to be paying too much attention to anything. Especially anyone coming into the restaurant. He's in charge so that means he doesn't have to do any work. That also means that it isn't until Rainbow Mika is right up on him does he realize that there's something going on that he's not exactly sure about. After a double (triple) take because shorty is in all kinds of spandex, Yun's dancing finally slows down enough that he's paying a little closer attention. "Say whaaaaa?" Granted, Waitress Li is still dancing on him. There's only a small shove at her to knock her off the table as he hops down. "Letter? Who still write letters?" Yun reaches up to twist his cap back around as Waitress Li falls off the table and into some old dude's lap. Two Points.
"Let me see that." Yun does some quick hand work to snatch at the letter so that he can let his eyes skim all over it. There are many emotions running over his eyebrows as he does this. First confusion, followed by amusement and then there's some rolling of his eyes as he recognizes the signature. "Oh you gotta' be kiddin' me. Seriously? Seriously, Gen?" Yun rolls his eyes once more, crumbling up the letter and giving it a toss back at Mika.
"Tell ya' what I'm gonna' do, Bubbles...." Yun flashes a big grin as he wanders over towards another random waitress hottie (they probably don't even really work here) and throws an arm around her. "I'm gonna' save you the embarrassment of havin' to get whooped in front of all these people by Yours Truly. So you go ahead an' skip on back to Body By Fake Wrestling School an' we'll call it even. Sound good?"
Did... did he just call wrestling fake? Something like that.
This is not working out quite like Mika had planned it. The people she'd met after her previous fight had been very polite and she'd been quite happy to have helped them drum up business in exchange for an opportunity to get some fighting exposure. When she received a letter from one of the men from that group, she'd been expecting a rather professional setup with the ring making its return and some excellent promotion to work up the crowd.
...Instead she gets stuck with some brat who doesn't know how to talk to people, and (from the attitude of the waiter) is probably not supposed to be treating the restraunt as his own little playboy club.
When it comes to Rainbow Mika, there is a very specific persona. She is bright and happy to see the fans. She'll put on the best show she possibly can. She'll sign autographs, shake hands, and take pictures no matter how long the line gets. This is what she has worked hard to cultivate as part of a deep respect not just for the wrestling profession but for the fans who make it possible as well.
This kid is a little shit who doesn't know how to talk to people.
The previously slightly sheepish begins to shift in position: her shoulders go back, her chest puffs out, her stance widens, and even behind her mask its apparent that her brows are frowning. Even a face is allowed to have something they hate. Something that breaks their typical demeanor...
Yun Lee is the perfect embodiment of that trigger.
"That is an official challenge letter, signed by the proprieter of this establishment. I have been scheduled for a fight, and when Rainbow Mika is scheduled for a fight, she doesn't disappoint her fans, you disrespectful brat."
See, somewhere in the middle of all of Mika's prattling on about her official challenge letter and proprietors and some other stuff that Yun probably doesn't understand, the cooler half of the Twin Dragons has turned his back on her. Clearly, his intent is both blatant disrespect and just as a-matter-of-fact non-verbal statement that he doesn't really give a crap about whatever it is that she's talking about. Yun and his waitress get about three steps away before Mika gets to the calling him on his bullshit part of her words and he stops. With a heavy shoulder shaking sigh he leans over to get a kiss on the cheek from the random side girl and proceeds to make the slow challenge accepting turn back towards Rainbow Mika.
"Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles." Yun gives a sad shake of his head. "Sounds like you /really/ want a piece of this." Yun holds his hands out to show himself off. Because that's what he does when he's on his own turf. "And while you're cute and stacked and all, I normally don't fight anyone that I don't think can hang." Yun reaches up to pull his cap down tighter on his head. "I think I'm gonna' make an exception in your case."
Yun flashes a grin and a wink, before he starts squaring his body up. The movement is one that the patrons and staff of Genhanten know quite well. Tables and chairs start getting moved to make at least a little bit of room for what is about to go down. Yun steps back, immediately starting to plant himself into a light Kempo stance, leg bent and arms styled with less worry and more style than he normally would be. Apparently, Yun doesn't think this girl is a credible threat. The smirk on his face is one of sarcastic amusement as he keeps a close eye on his about to be opponent.
"Come on, girl. Show me what you got." Yun Z, ladies and gentlemen.

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/-------|=------\-------\0 Yun
She came here for a fight and it appears now that Rainbow Mika has a fight. Thankfully it will be an opportunity to teach this brat a thing or two about how to show basic respect instead of wagging his tongue and filling the air with worthless, self-indulgent prattle.
The entire restraunt can probably feel the start of a fight forming... and Mika can feel the intensity of the crowd around her. She takes in a deep breath as she starts to move into her ready posture, basking in the attention that comes with combat. A ready crowd, waiting to be entertained.
But beyond that, she also settles her focus on her opponent, watches the way he moves, feeling out his fighting aura as she begins to get in sync with it.
"If you think you're so great, show me what you've got, you brat!"
Yun cracks a bigger smile now that it seems like everything is starting to go the way it should be. He wasn't planning on getting into a fight today. He really wasn't. But it seems like Gen wants to keep him on his toes for some reason. Like he isn't the Better Brother or something. And if Gen wants to sacrifice some up and coming weak wrestler that's cute as all hell... then so be it. Yun has no problem taking it to her with a little extra added flavor. He is, after all, a rising star.
"Thought you'd never ask."
Yun's quip back in Rainbow Mika's direction is followed closely by the movements of his body. He spins off his planted leg, stepping inwards and towards his ballast-able opponent. Somehow he manages to keep his head twisted to look in her direction while his body shifts and moves, curving as he takes himself into the air for a moment. He's not that high, but he's high enough that extending one of his legs to bring his heel down towards Mika's skull should be indication enough that he's definitely about to give her a little glimpse of what he's got. Nothing too fancy. Not yet. He's just getting started.

When Yun comes flying right for her, Rainbow Mika doesn't even move. It's not that he's too fast for her to do anything, she seems to have her eyes locked right on him, waiting for him to come in and land his strike.
Unfortunately for her plans, it really is a bit faster than she was expecting, she can't quite managed to settle into position before his heel comes down on the top her head, it causes her knees to buckle briefly. It's enough to slow her down, but hardly enough to get her dizzy.
"That's not too bad... but it takes more than a single kick to knock me down." This is where it starts, her body braces for a moment before she surges forward like a maniac, lunging to throw her arm around the back of Yun's neck. If she manages to hook it in place, her other hand comes in and plants on his chest, not striking it so much as helping her to haul him up vertical and upsidedown on her shoulder before she suddenly drops back, holding him straight up the entire way as she slams his head into the floor.

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/------=|====---\-------\0 Yun
Yun's feet land squarely on the floor of Genhanten and he's trying not to play to the crowd too much. In fact, he's actually attempting to see if he can keep his attention locked on his opponent. Then again, she's not hard on the eyes at all so it is not too difficult to actually do that. Which is why he takes a step back. She's bouncing at him like a maniac and Yun can't help but to smile.
"Y'know, you're kinda' cute when you're angry."
Yun flashes a wink and plants his back foot, bracing himself as Mika comes in with that lunge. His hand goes up to slap her arm away, followed just as quickly by a twirl of his arms around each other for stylistic purposes. The repositioning of his arms allows him to bring both hands down towards her other hand, slapping at that one as well, aiming to send it down and away from his body with a wry smirk.
Speed becomes the name of the game as he immediately unfolds his hands and takes a step inward. He's hoping his sudden stylish defensive maneuvers have thrown Mika off guard because that step forward is followed by the open palmed pushing motion coming from Yun's strong hands. Directed from his abdominal core, Yun's expulsion of force is definitely going to be stronger than it looks. There might even be a slight blue glow around his fingers and his shoes as he attempts to knock Mika away from him.

If the point of his maneuver was to catch Rainbow Mika off guard and get her away, Yun's likely to be disappointed by the results. When it becomes obvious that the young kenpo fighter has managed to slip right out of her grasp, Mika's stance suddenly widens, muscles tensing as they prepare for the incoming blow... and then she just stands there, not even rolling back on her heels when the strike comes.
"One of the first steps to becoming a strong fighter is realising that your opponent deserves your respect... until they do something to to lose it." There's a smile on her face as she finishes the quick speech.
The entire time her body has already begun moving, she uses the close proximity, and the settled state of her body, to lunge forward headfirst, the smile on her face growing all the more obvious as she attempts to slam her forehead right into the younger brat's to stun make his head ring.
One could call it a love tap if there weren't so much hostility behind it.

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/----===|=======\-------\1 Yun
There's something to be said about taking a hit and when Rainbow Mika tanks the Kobo Kushi, there's actually a look of impressed surprise on Yun's face. He doesn't get a chance to comment, though, because in that next moment, Mika's head is smashing into his own with the force of a wrecking ball... attached to a diesel truck... going a million miles per hour... with no brakes... and thrown by Zangief doing that spinny thing he does.
The results of such connection of hard heads is loud because there's the sound of something cracking and then also the sound of Yun wincing loudly as he stumbles backwards and crashes onto a table of random dishes. He doesn't go completely down but the dishes do, shattering as they fall off the table from Yun's sudden appearance. Whatever staff member was trying to clear or stack them is /pissed/. Because the Chinese swearing is on volume ten.
As Mika's delivered speech finally hits Yun's ears, he's dropped down to one knee. His head is already starting to swell from the pain and his cap has been knocked wayward. He's getting a big bruise up there but he's not too worried about it right now. "That was the worst fortune I've ever heard. If you want, I can hook you up with a few cookies when I'm down sweepin' the floor with you."
Yun's words are perhaps a clue. From his crouched position he spins quickly, aiming to bring his leg out towards Mika's legs, putting some moderate speed and some moderate power behind it as he seeks to sweep her right down to the floor of this here restaurant. He just needs a little room to breathe. And maybe a couple hundred aspirin because /damn/.
COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika interrupts Medium Kick from Yun with German Suplex.
[ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ < > ////////////////////// ]
Rainbow Mika 0/-------/----===|=======\==-----\1 Yun
As Yun reels from the blow, Rainbow Mika begins to pace slightly. She actually wants to give him an opportunity to get his wits about himself. Perhaps a good blow to the head would jar loose some basic decency in his head. The boy's still a teenager, and sometimes a good whallop has an effect on those who haven't quite gotten the world sorted out.
...Of course, if a good wallop was enough to sort things out for Yun, then its more than likely that Gen could have already gotten that out of the boy. Or Chun-li. There's quite a lot about the kid's life that Mika doesn't really know, which is why she gave him this opportunity.
...And then all of that good faith is thrown out the door in just a few short words. Before he even really gets moving, Mika puffs out her chest. As he's trying to sweep her legs, she's already darting behind the younger fighter, and through sheer matter of luck, his kick manages to catch on nothing more than the protective sole of her wrestling boot.
Once in position, her arms slip in around his waist, powerful muscles trapping him in place. "You're not very good at sweeping. I can tell because you missed a spot RIGHT OVER HERE!" She punctuates her retort by hauling Yun up off the ground, bending over backwards as she slams his head into the floor of the Genhanten.
If the floor of Genhanten wasn't cracked before, it is cracked now. There's also the bit where he's also been German Suplex'd right down onto those dishes that he just knocked over before, so the smashing of whichever ones didn't break already is also there. Overall, Yun is not exactly in the best place. His head is only somewhat cushioned by the cap that doesn't seem to want to come off his head. So he's not completely destroyed. Just mostly. The pain of such impact is almost as painful as the previous headbutt. His head is really starting to take a crucially impactful beating.
And he's actually loving it.
The pained laughter that comes from Yun as he attempts to roll himself free of suplexing grips now that he's been planting against the floor could be confused with him being completely out of his mind. But it is less complicated than that. It really has more to do with the fact that he enjoys fighting almost as much as he enjoys being himself. And that is why he's laughing.
"Oh man. I can't believe I almost didn't fight you." This is said as he shakily steps back up to both of his feet. He takes his time reaching up to straighten up his cap, getting it centered on his head again and making sure that everything is still looking as good as it did when he started this fight. "You don't suck nearly as much as I thought you did!"
Yun takes a step to the side, jumping up and onto the table he keeps hanging close near. He takes to the air after that, flashing a grin as he spreads his arms like wings and angles his right leg downwards, banking on gravity and stylish aim to carry him through this aimed kick to level the playing field. It doesn't really matter where he hits Mika with this, as long as he does. That's what Yun's going for, anyway.

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/--=====|=======\==-----\1 Yun
If there's one thing that can be said about wrestlers, its the fact that they know how to take hits and keep on going. A lot of fighting styles avoid going for the head simply because the skull is a tough nut to crack and has a good chance of hurting you right back. In professional wrestling? Your opponent is going to use your own weight against you as they pound your head into the mat over and over again.
And, from the looks of it, Rainbow Mika is more than happy to show off just how tough she is. It would seem that talking about just how fake you think professional wrestling is in front of someone who has made it her lifes mission to reach the pinnacle of what she considers to be the finest form of public fighting there is... maybe not the greatest idea.
She keeps the trend going even further as he comes lunging at her, once more her muscles tighten to ready for the blow, taking the kick in full across her shoulder without even flinching. She holds steady like a brick wall, letting Yun bounce right back away from her and reach the floor, but briefly holds back, apparently giving him time to get to his feet.r
"You keep talking about how great you are, so far it's been barely anything to worry about!" The well trained wrestler's voice fills the entire restraunt, there isn't a patron in the entire place whose eyes don't turn to look at the pair now. "If you want to show me that you're such an incredible fighter that you have the right to look down on anyone else... then show me what you've got! Give me your best shot, or admit that you don't have what it takes!"
Right as she finishes calling out Yun, he's about risen back up to the position she was waiting for, nearly all the way to his feet when she suddenly launches herself up into the air, aiming to leap right up onto his face, squeezing his head between her thighs as she whips all her weight back and twists, holding her arms out to either side. The motion should be enough to make her flip backwards, taking the cocky young kenpo artist and launching his head right back into the floor.

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/---====|=======\==-----\1 Yun
It's hard to say how long the old chef has been up behind that railing, overlooking the main floor from the landing above. He paces to and fro eating diligently from a bowl of spicy noodles and vegetables that, frankly, are perfect-- he should know, he is a /master/. It's with an almost detached analysis that Gen observes the unfolding fight, dark eyes darting from student to contender with stoic dispassion etched all over his wrinkled features. He finishes his meal and sets the bowl aside on one of the tables bordering that overlook, a quiet glance exchanged with someone unseen seated in an alcove beyond him, but it's the only distraction he brooks from the battle below.
Even with that focus, at a glance it may look like he's scarcely paying attention, scanning with the periphery of his vision as often as he actually looks -at- the combatants. If Gen is concerned with the subtle cracks added to the resilient hardwood that floors the restaurant, or the dishes Yun breaks? It -certainly- does not show on the old man's face. He strokes his long, pure white beard pensively as the fight is joined in force, hopping up to balance perfectly on the rail, taking careful stock of each motion made in the battle as he perches in his cloth slippers.
Mika isn't wrong: if smacking Yun in the head were enough to make him into a great fighter and a rational man, Gen would have seen it done. It's hard to fault the old master for putting some faith in repetition, though, right? At the /very/ least, it's exceptionally cathartic for the aged assassin. There's even a ghost of a smile as his student is called out (yet again), and then fades just as quickly when Yun's dexterity kicks in. Apparently, Gen felt a return trip to the floorboards would do both of them good. A gnarled, deceptively powerful hand sweeps that beard thrice more, one foot lifting to scratch at the opposite leg with no apparent impact on the old warrior's catlike balance atop his perch.
Yun Lee. The White Dragon of the Wind and Clouds. He is not ready for what is happening in these moments. His overconfidence has fueled him this far but there are factors that he was not prepared for. His lackluster belief in wrestling as any sort of viable fighting style. His dismissive approach to taking on Rainbow Mika. All these are factors that have come together to prove just how much the young dragon still has to learn. After all, the way that Mika becomes a pliable brick wall when his foot plants against her shoulder is both impressive and jarring. So much so that when he rebounds off from effectively kicking a brick wall, he lands in a heap of slightly frustrated kung fu light mastery.
Rising from the crumpled heap of failure, Yun shakes his head. Cobwebs are starting to gather and the look in his eyes betrays his frustration. It clashes with the smile on his face as it seems that Yun is trapped between having such a great time and being frustrated that his skills are being tested so. He hasn't ever really fought a bouncy brick wall before and this experience is starting to become ever so more eye opening. Maybe this is what Gen meant when he said something about walls or boards not hitting back. Or was that Fei Long? It doesn't really matter. Yun's thoughts are distracted for only a moment. A single moment. And then Mika drags him back to the harsh reality by calling him out. Again.
Yun's eyes go wide for a brief second as he sees Rainbow Mika launch herself into the air. It is halfway through going wide do those eyes of his narrow, showing that there may be more to Yun that talking shit. As his eyes narrow, his body tenses briefly, his back foot twisting and his hands coming up as if he's preparing to put himself in some sort of kung fu stance. And it isn't until she starts her descent does Yun close his eyes and smile. For that is the moment that he stops fighting and begins being a fighter.
Mika's legs get a hair of an inch away from colliding with his shoulders in her attempt to lock him in. Yun's smile grows as his body rolls backwards on the heel of that planted foot, deftly pulling himself out of the way. Although, it is not a completely clean removal as his braid is caught up by Mika's thigh, sending it swinging wildly as his body continues to twirl backwards and away from his wrestling opponent.
There's a clear and defined moment where his body comes to a complete stop. Yun centers himself, his head bowed and that braid of his coming to a swinging halt over his shoulder. His askew cap is grabbed by the yellow bill and he pulls it straight and down, pulling it over his eyes in a manner befitting of someone that is about to 'get serious'. A roll of his shoulders and neck results in a cracking sound and he looks at the ground, while his words soft-spokenly sent towards Rainbow Mika, "As you wish."
Shades of Gen come with that statement before Yun finds himself moving in Mika's direction. His body turning and his arm extending with a strong fist. Leaninng forward and leaping across the newly made gap in an attempt to knock Mika's block clean off with a move that some of the patrons (and his waitress fangirls) will instantly recognize.

Rainbow Mika 1/----===/=======|=======\=====--\1 Yun
With the way he'd been moving before, it seemed apparent to Mika that he didn't quite have what it takes. Sure he moved quick, but he didn't put enough thought into that movement. He didn't take the challenge seriously, and so, ultimately, he would have to come up short.
This seems to change when he actually accepts her challenge. She's left in an awkward position as she goes flying clean over the younger fighter, leaving her to land heavy on her boots on the other side, stumbling faintly with a frown.
The floor is all wrong... she should have put more effort into training for matches out of the ring. In the ring there's a certain give, designed partially to prevent an opponents skull from splitting open after a particularly offensive attack. These floors are solid... the grip is different. She'll have to keep that in mind in the future.
Unfortunately, what that means for Mika right now, after she's actually managed to draw some of the dragon out of her opponent, is that her turn is a half second too slow, it takes her that half-second longer to see the attack coming, and her arms just barely miss out as she tries to catch the weight of the punch.
...and there's a still as the strike hits her right in the face and she stumbles back. When she looks back up, there's already blood pouring from her nose which adds an uncharacteristicly creepy tone as her lips spreads in a great big smile. "That's more like it. It's about time you actually fought, instead of just posing and posturing."
Despite the new injury, she straightens back up and seems to pull herself together, grinning as her eyes flicker over the surroundings, slowly processing them into her best approximation of a wrestling ring while her muscles coil.
Then she launches herself forward with abandon, kicking both legs up as she attempts to put both boots right through his chest! On a clean hit, she bounces back, rolls and pops up on top the nearest table, then once more launches herself right at Yun's head. This time, if her legs take hold, she just uses the weight of it to slam him onto his back, squeezing her thighs tight around his head. She then plants her hands on the floor and begins to haul him up into the air only to slam his head back down into the floor on the other side.

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/-------|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2 Yun
Rainbow Mika has disconnected.
Rainbow Mika has connected.
Yun's confidence has been restored and he's slightly fading back into his complacent fighting style. Although, there's a rift that has formed between that style and the new fighter's edge that he has recently started to show. He pushes down the moment to relax and attempts to stay focused on the fight at hand. He doesn't even make a witty comment when he notices that Mika's nose has been busted. He just smirks.
This smirk may have fueled what happened next. He was unprepared for Mika's strong and sturdy body to be capable of recovery and movement with such speed and ease. He's caught completely off-guard by the arrival of her body on his. His hat askews as her legs tighten around his head and he winces when his body hits the floor. Before he can try to break free, he's brought back into the air and slammed back down into the Genhanten floorboards once again, something else cracking upon impact. If it is Yun or if it is Genhanten, it perhaps is hard to read. But either way, Yun's body seems to just slide to a still position on the floor.
When Yun's head lifts, there's obvious bruising on the side of his face and there's clearly some wear and tear on his shoulders and neck. There, beneath the muscle, are knots forming from the constant attacks that this wrestling goddess has happened onto his person. Nothing nice. Nothing nice at all. He groans as he rises to his feet, though staying stable is something that doesn't seem to be in the cards, as he stumbles backwards a couple of steps. He shakes his head a bit and tries to get the pounding in his head to quiet down. It doesn't really happen.
"Not bad. For a wrestler." Although Yun takes to dissing the chosen fighting style of his opponent again, this time it doesn't sound as malicious as before. This time it actually sounds like he's just making a witty dig for teasing purposes. Apparently, respect for this fighter has been formed. "Unfortunately, Rainbow Mika, I'm going to have to show you exactly why you can't stand up to my kung fu."
Yun cracks a smile as he squares his cap on his head again and drops back into a familiar fighting stance. He grins and RUSHes forward with a sudden burst of speed that he'd probably been banking for quite sometime. His muscles flex and expand as if he's attempting to put even more POWER behind what is coming. He slides in close, aiming a pair of speedy elbow strikes, alternating from one arm to the other. Whether they hit or not, Yun moves right along to a pair of lunging palm strikes, again alternating his hands, in an attempt to knock Mika off balance. He keeps on the pressure, stepping right into a jumping high kick from one foot to the other, simply trying to juggle Mika into the air so that he can follow up with a spinning roundhouse kick to launch her into the air!
"Time to showoff a little!" Yun's playful nature is still in full force as he rises with his opponent, gliding with her body and planting his feet against her back, clearly attempting to ride her like a skateboard towards the second level of Genhanten. He flips upside down to perform a spinning handstand on her back, thus the showing off a little, as he guides the spinning body back in the direction of the ground floor. Flipping back over, he attempts a sudden flurry of downward kicks towards Rainbow Mika's back, rotating his body for maximum style points and goes to finish her off with a sudden and powerful final kick to the back of her skull... to see if he can't smash her face first through one of Genhanten's tables and into the floor.

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/---====|>>>>>>>\-------\0 Yun
It's easy to miss Gen, unless one were looking up-- and why would they? The aged assassin puts off little in the way of radiance, subtle even in the unseen spectrum to those senses, instincts, attunements that accomplished fighters possess. He's obviously a warrior; it's in the way he moves, holds himself. The old man's invisible aura seems to almost evade when sensed, however, like it recedes across a vast and untravelled expanse. Thusly, it's remarkably difficult to get a read on the eccentric old master, or to feel him coming; in this case, watching. A small, satisfied nod is given as Mika finds her bearing, seizes her moment... and pushes Yun right to the limit with brutal acumen. Perhaps he was right in judging this one to be a potent challenge for his protege, after all.
The elder chef wanders back along the rail on feet that barely seem to shift it, nary a creak, much less a footfall, suggesting the passage of the diminutive man. He moves with the exchange of exceptional, exceptionally painful techniques to maintain his decidedly exquisite vantage point, though he saves the golf clap for when someone's eyes actually fall upon him. A hop that seems to be more float than drop brings Gen back to the landing proper, hands clasping behind his back as his course is set for the stairway down, though he takes his sweet, sweet time about it. The man is old; decrepit. He forgot his cane.
The thing about Southtown is that everyone in Southtown is used fights breaking out in unusual places every once in awhile. It's just a fact of living in a city with an unreasonably high population of both native fighters and out of town visitors taking in the local scenery. This means that at this point, those who were already willing to stick around in the restraunt while Yun was sitting around listening to music and being a general brat are on their feet cheering.
The fight has gotten intense.
For most fighters, an excitable crowd is simply something they have to deal with... for Rainbow Mika it's the environment she thrives in. The opponent is important, but the crowd is as much a part of the spirit of the fight as any fighter.
So perhaps this is why, despite looking sore and battered from this encounter, Mika somehow manages to tense up her muscles yet again, readying herself for the pain about to be inflicted. And for every blow coming at her, intercepts it with her arms. Some are caught on her forearms, others an awkwardly placed upper arm. When he tries to take her up into the air with his kicks, she manages to absorb the blow, hopping backwards to let the slide burn off some of the energy that was aimed to trap her in the combination attack.
She comes sliding to a stop by one the nearby tables, her outfit torn in a few places along her forearms. Despite the pain, she's grinning from ear to ear. This is what it's all about, pulling ahead despite the impossible odds.
This is really it. She doesn't really have a whole lot left in her at this point. Wasting no more time, Mika once more crosses the distance between her and Yun, despite how worn out she is. Yet again she leaps up into the air, and with her best effort attempts to land on his head again, clench him tight between her thighs and put him to the ground. Once there, she hauls him up in a similar manner to what she'd just accomplished, and tosses him at the nearest unoccupied table.

How is she even still moving? Not that he managed to get the full on effect of his epic moves to land on her. But still, Yun has been whoopin' that ass a little bit and she's still capable of moving with such tremendous and powerful speed and grace. Yun can barely keep his wits about him. Though, he's kind of running on pure style and pure adrenaline at this point.
"Respect." is finally said as things are starting to look as though they are finally coming to a head. And that's when he realizes Rainbow Mika is coming towards his once again. He can't move as fast this time and she locks those legs around him with tremendous weight and power. He hits the ground and his body goes somewhat limp, making it easy for her to lift again. Yun goes sailing through the air and smashes right through the table with full on force. It breaks into so many pieces as Yun hits the floor and he's going to be down for just a moment. "Ugh..."
Yun's movements are slow and there's blood now. He just got thrown through a table. He pushes up to his feet, stumbling on the pieces of table underneath his sneakers as he tries to get his feet under him in a viable way. He's seeing triple-double of Mika and it takes a shake of his head to clear his vision up.
He tucks and rolls his way across the floor to her and pops up just in front of her. His head tilted down as he raises an arm up to lash her underneath the chin, "Hope you like this!" If that can knock her into the air a bit, Yun aims a sharp elbow strike for her rising midsection and spins around quickly, aiming to smack into her rising body with the back of his left shoulder. This is all designed to juggle her into the air whilst he grins and pours on the witty banter, "Get ready!" His body continues its rotation and he plants a foot forward, putting himself directly underneath what should be a falling Rainbow Mika and thrusts a strong left fist right above his head in an effort to catch Mika right in the chest as she's coming back down.

Rainbow Mika 1/---====/=======|-------\-------\0 Yun
If there is one thing to be said about Rainbow Mika, it's that she refuses to give up even when the chips are down. It's obvious just looking at her that she's spent every ounce of energy she can muster. She's battered and bruised, her face is caked with her own blood, a fair amount of which has fallen to stain her outfit, which has torn all along the arms by this point.
"Let's go..." she manages, still smiling despite it all.
This time, however, despite her drive, despite the roaring cheers of the crowd, she just doesn't have it in her to move her legs. Each strike hits clean, knocking her up into the air, spinning her around, and plowing right into her chest. She hits the floor hard. It doesn't look very good, she was already exhausted.
And yet despite it all, she starts to move. Pushing back up off the floor, somehow still grinning despite the pain. "That... was pretty good. Tell me what you think of this one!" How the hell does she still have energy to shout?!
Despite the heavy weight of her limbs, she suddenly lashes forward with an elbow, attempting to give Yun a moment of pause from having the wind knocked out of him and following it up by thrusting up with all the force her legs can muster, headbutting right into his chin as she wraps her arms around his midsection, squeezing him tight. With every last ounce of strength in her muscles, she lets out a yell as she whips backward again, one last time attempting to make Yun's skull make friends with the Genhanten floor... and then falling flat on the floor.

COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika successfully hit Yun with Sardine's Beach Special.
Stepping off the final stair and onto the main floor, Gen provides a golf clap in dignified triplicate to the harried warriors concluding their bout. It's not quite admiration, or an enthused 'excellent', but Mika had it right earlier: it is, indeed, a matter of respect. THe wrestler has done nothing to lose it, and Yun, well.. Yun is a very young man, and Gen is keenly aware of it. A look, a gesture, it's all it takes for the old master to send his staff back to work-- even the waitress Yun was flirting with, who had been watching with held breath, immediately scatters. There are patrons who'll want refreshment and nourishment in the wake of that show, after all.
Gen watches as the pair -exchange- finishers, perhaps the first surprising turn in the bout for the observant old master, and an amused chuckle shakes the diminutive warrior's shoulders. Words he had planned for Yun go instead to a middle-aged host nearby, "Get this mess cleaned up. Whatever the girl wants, feed her; on the house." Magnanimous, 'Grandpa Gen'. "Figure out how much was destroyed, and dock Yun's paychecks until it's repaid." ... maybe not /entirely/ magnanimous. Stroking his beard amidst one final survey of the scene before him, Gen turns on one heel and paces with unhurried grace back towards the back of the restaurant.
Even a master of Kung Fu such as Yun Lee believes himself to be cannot continue to be standing, especially after such brutality that comes in the form of Rainbow Mika. Yun doesn't even know how to dodge what is headed in his direction, because before he even knows it, he's smacked up something fierce by the wrestler. His hat goes flying to indicate his utter destruction and he finds himself grabbed and slammed right down into the floor.
Yun's head cracks the floor for real this time and that also manages to put him out like a cheap light. Or like a cheap Gen not paying the electric bill. Yun's body becomes more than dead weight as he lays there on the floor, arms sprawled out his sides and head trickling with blood. His freaking skull is cracked. His eyes are shut and his body doesn't have a prayer in moving. He's done.
Eventually, his cap flutters down to the floor near him, landing softly within wishful thinking range.
COMBATSYS: Yun takes no action.
