Tiffany - A Ghost Hops On By

Description: A hopping vampire breaks into Pacific High while Tiffany tries to work out her frustrations that the school isn't treating Christmas like a couples' holiday.

It's Christmas!! ... Well, Christmas Eve, anyway.

As the one place in Southtown that doesn't treat Christmas like a couples' holiday, Pacific High is pretty hoppin' for its students. Clubs have been suspended -- or at least, meetings are voluntary -- and the school is festooned with festivities and decorations.

Tiffany, however, finds herself a touch saddened by the proceedings; while she enjoys Christmas, she was actually hoping they'd do it the way Japan does it at the Southtown branch of Pacific High. No reason. (There's a reason. It's Roy. Roy is the reason.) On top of that, she's a touch homesick; Christmas Eve was always the time actual celebration happened in the Lords family household.

As a result, the cheerleader has decided to do her best to swallow those feelings with a trip to the school's lovingly-appointed gym. Her fists hit the heavy bag with more precision than they do most days; her workout is just that littlest bit more purposeful, since she's doing it to distract herself.

Christmas time is a special time for lots of people, thoughts turn to snow, colorful presents, reindeer, and jolly old men in red suits...well for some that is.

Japan tends to treat it as one of two major important date nights in a romantic relationship, which can put a lot of stress on individuals to make progress in such a relationship.

So what does that have to do with the muffled sound of metal on glass as a large hole is cut into one of the gym's large high windows. The answer to that question is simple, absolutely nothing at all save that it has caused someone that wouldn't normally be here to be here at this exact time of the day. The glass is carefully slid from window and a colorful clad character not unlike Saint Nick himself slips through the hole bending at an impossible angle at least once while pulling itself through.

*Tink* The sound as massive metal claws alight upon the rafters of the gym after the being fully emerges from the hole in the window. Hanging now from the ceiling a unusual girl dressed in what can be described as the most colorful clown like cloths a non clown has ever worn peers about the room, she also happens to have the most vibrant blue tint to her skin that no living thing should /ever/ have.

"Yes!" The being says in a distinctly feminine tone. She chuckles, "Well no, that'd not have been as fun would it?" Then she pouts, "That's not fair I never get'ta have any fun!!!" She sighs, "Fine fine, begining the search most high and imperial personage of the entire universe!" The last of her words dripping teasing sarcasm from every syllable. Suffice it to say that the being still hanging by one massive metal clawed hand from the gym rafters has totally overlooked the cheerleader training below.

Though Tiffany usually goes through her days in a vague 'whatever, I'll just do what I want' sort of daze, she's become increasingly vigilant and attentive to her surroundings thanks to the increasing weirdness affecting all of Southtown's schools. It's hard to ignore things when every time you try to have cheerleading practice there are ninjas or weirdos, and people are taking pictures of athletic team practices, and schools are insisting on vaccinations!

Accordingly, when Tiffany hears that metal clawing noise, she immediately slows her routine. At first, she thinks it's the heavy bag chain shifting in on itself... but when she notices the chain is actually plastic, she starts to get more than a little suspicious. Her gaze tilts up, tracking in short order to the girl hanging from the ceiling -- and her eyes widen a little. That unearthly pallor, those strange clothes... what's her /deal/?

She starts to move toward the hanging girl, listening to her talk 'to herself;' shifting a little uneasily, Tiffany wonders for an instant if this is just another of Southtown's numerous... colourful... characters. It's when she mentions that she's beginning a search that Tiffany decides that something is up; looking up, the cheerleader calls out, "HEY! What're you DOING?" Her Japanese is a little on the irregular side, something she clearly has trouble with, but at least she can communicate. "Get down HERE!" she adds, after another moment.

Holding up her other sleeved arm Lei Lei reveals her other hand's set of claws and begins to scan the room, "Huh? This is the gym!!!" she then hangs her head in defeat, "Okay you were right there but don't rub it in!" She whines before the voice from below suddenly drifts up to her and golden eyes fall upon the Cheerleader, *tink* the claws holding the rafter release immediately.

Normally if someone releases a rafter like that they'd fall to the ground with an impressive thud but not the girl with the metal claws, she hangs there in the air like it's the most normal thing to do, "Uh oh....I've been seen!" She then cringes as though someone were screaming right next to her before she holds up a clawed finger to her lips, "Shhhhhh!!!"

Now focused on Tiffany and still hanging in mid air though she seems to be falling at an impossibly slow rate, she suddenly pushes off the air as though it were as solid as any type of ground and rockets down to the ground, her head twitching slightly in a somewhat compuslive manner. Now on even eye level she holds up her metal claws and coughs into them as though preparing for a lecture before she holds up her metal fingers and wiggles them at the cheerleader, "You're like totally umm....having a weird day dream, this isn't happening at all!" As she does this she begins shuffling in a truly bizarre manner that looks like a weird hopping motion towards the exit, "Nothing to see here, nope!~" She sing songs as she continues 'hopping' backwards.

On the one hand, Tiffany has been known to have weird dayderams... but on the other hand, very few of them involve weird creepy dead girls telling her she's having them! Besides, if she were having a weird daydream, Lei Lei would have already picked her up and carried her to lunch!

Fists clenched tight, Tiffany watches Lei Lei start to hop away after what seems like half of a phone call -- wait a second... that's it. She /is/ talking to someone else -- she has to have a bluetooth device, or an implant, or a camera... that's it! She /is/ one of those weirdos spying on everyone! With that realization, Tiffany bolts for the door, stance low and fists up.

"I'm not letting you leave WITHOUT an explanation," Tiffany declares, stance firm as she hops from side to side, doing her best to block as much of the door as possible for as long as possible. "If you wanna GET OUT, you're gonna have to go through me!" Her stance is pretty strong, too -- it's clear that this isn't her first time around the block, as far as fighting goes...

The girl seems momentarily confused Lei Lei tries to seize the initiative and hop away faster but the other girl seems to come to some resolution and speeds around her making that exit inaccesible. The Jiang Shi frowns for half a moment before she seems to make a decision of her own. Holding up her hands again suddenly there is plushie of a man dressed in a black training gi, the arms of the gi have been either blown or ripped off, and the man's visage could only be called demonic, "No need for that, how about I give you this and you let me by?" She squeezes the plush character and it says in a tiny but oddly intimidating voice, "I'll bathe in your blood!"

Lei Lei's head falls backwards before in a completely compulsive reaction of her muscles causes it the whirl around as though she were trying to pop her neck but entirely too fast to be of any use in doing that, "It's really a good deal!" She enthuses after a moment of pained silence after the plush character spoke.

While she tries to talk her way out of it with a bribe, Lei Lei's stance changes ever so slightly though it's hard to tell what sort of stance she is taking due to her strange movements.

For about two seconds, Tiffany seriously considers the offer Lei Lei provides, because despite its demonic nature, that plush toy is really just too damn cute for words. Fortunately, when it starts talking, the allure of its cuteness wears off, and she promptly shakes her head as if trying to wrest the idea from it. "I -- no! That's RIDICULOUS!" the Lords heiress answers in short order, moving closer to the jiangshi.

She has waited so long for answers about this whole mess in the schools -- and she's not going to let herself get bought off now that a potential opportunity to get them has fallen into her lap! It looks like the only way this is going to lead anywhere is if Tiffany herself takes the initiative... so that's exactly what she does, shifting her stance from defensive to aggressive in a heartbeat.

Despite those enormous metal claws, Tiffany is perfectly willing to aggress; she's confident, it seems, that she can handle herself. At first glance, it looks like she's going to come in for a punch with just the same form she had with the heavy bag... but at the last second, she hurls her whole body into a cartwheel! Legs at full extension, she aims each foot in turn for the blue girl's face, hoping to hammer her guard with gusto.

"Awwww!!!!" Lei Lei whines as her bribe is rejected and she tossed the plush away. Then the other girl starts to attack her and Lei Lei is happy she'd already shifted her weight in preperation for the attack the attempt to deceive her with the feint is seen through as Tiffany finds her leg slamming into the metal of those giant claws that seem to make up the blue girl's hands.

Looking very bemused she sighs, "Remember I tried to be peaceful about all this, so don't complain!"

With that She smirks her body sliding backwards as her right arm whips up, the sleev falling farther down to reveal that the claw is gone and has been replaced by a massive spike ball, lurching in a painful looking way Lei Lei's body spins around like some sort of cross between ballerina and zombie, looking both smooth and very practiced while at the same time jerky and mechanical at the same time. The ball flys from the sleeve and revolves around her in a massive orbit as it seems to be connected to her by a chain.

"Why would I COMPLAIN?" comes the logical next question as Tiffany whirls her whole body to the side, giving the spiked ball as wide a berth as she can; she /really/ doesn't want to get hit with any of Lei Lei's enormous, vicious weaponry. Rocking from side to side on her feet again, Tiffany takes the opportunity to take a deep breath, steadying herself -- though it does give Lei Lei a lot more time to breathe, too.

"All right, so you've got some okay DEFENSES," Tiffany murmurs to herself, taking stock of the fight thus far -- she can recognize talent when she sees it. "So what abouuuut..." She's attacked her from ground level -- which means now is a perfect time to, instead, take to the skies! Keep the offense nice and varied and surely eventually things will work out.

Propelling herself up into the air with a speedy jump, Tiffany whirls her body around at the apex of her jump, totally redirecting her momentum. Now headed /forward/, she aims her feet squarely for Lei Lei's chest, hoping to quite literally test her chest. "Who are you WORKING for?" she asks, mid-descent; there has to be /someone/, right? Some genesis point for all this weirdness.

"People often complain about trouble they bring upon themselves." Lei Lei's sage reply comes fast as she then grins despite the fact that the ball misses it's target. While to some this might be annoying the blue girl gets an odd enjoyment out of it as though it were some grand game. Using the moment to try and brace herself against the attack that she knows is coming.

The attack connects cleanly slamming into her ample chest, though the flesh there is soft the muscle and skeleton beneath are almost stone like in their rigity, it's amazing she's able to move with muscle that tense. The jiang shi lets out a pained grunt as the air is knocked from her lungs...or at least the equivalent sensation passes over her body from the blow.

Not willing to let the momentum stay in Tiffany's favor, Lei Lei let's herself roll slightly with the impact reaching out to grab the cheerleader by the leg, she plans to build up the speed to launch the other girl back first into the rafters, "Myself!" She cheers in reply to the Pacifica student's question.

"Yeah, well... uh..." Tiffany has no real good answer to that bit of sage wisdom; she frowns at the realization that she can't really refute what the jiangshi is saying, and that feeling of verbal helplessness puts her a little more on her guard than she otherwise might be. Accordingly, when Lei Lei reaches out for her leg, Tiffany hurls herself into a quick whirl; she'd /intended/ it to be an enzuigiri, but in practice all it does is get her leg out of the way.

"What?! There's no way you're the mastermind, though -- who are you TALKING to?" There's a beat as Tiffany gets up from her maneuver, before she adds, "Like -- BESIDES me!" She's smart enough to see through /that/ potential deflection of her question, at least, before it even starts.

At long last, Tiffany decides, as she moves forward, to finally use the tools she was honing before Lei Lei arrived to fight the hopping vampire; with two quick side-to-side weaves, she steps up and aims a forceful straight punch for the zombie girl's face. Should it connect, she follows up with a quick jab from the other hand, trying to press her advantage while she has the chance, noting, "Don't lie -- I'LL know!"

"Now, think it through would someone with intentions of harm try to avoid a fight especially if they've been spotted?" Lei Lei sing songs as she fight, her strange movements helping her as her grab misses but she's already twisting as Tiffany lands and leans in with the punch combo, her metal clawed hands already raised across her body absorbing the impacts quite well. Her eyes flick to the ceiling as a grin forms on her lips.

"Anyone can be a devil despite their appearance or behavior." The hopping vampire chides the cheerleader again, though her grin slips just slightly as a pout wars with it for control of her visage. The jiang shi actually chuckles in response to her cutting off the deflection, "Tsk, well in that case I don't have to tell you that, maybe if you'd asked first instead of thrown the first fist...or foot as the case may be."

With that she launches one of her clawed hands up to the rafters a long chain trailing from it as this time she takes to the air turning into a massive pendulum as she does so, her leg mysteriously now bearing a blade that was not there a moment ago she whips through air having become guillotine in this moment trying very much cut Tiffany down to size, "Hmph, as if I'd lie!" She spits back in mild annoyance at the accusation.

Tiffany          1/------</<<<<<<<|=======\=------\1          Lei Lei

"Uhh... well..." Tiffany doesn't have an answer to Lei Lei's question -- and that fact ends up costing her, as the jiangshi turns into a giant pendulum and swings clean through her! Though she doesn't bleed /badly/, she does bleed -- Tiffany may be made of sterner stuff than the average cheerleader, but at the end of the day, she's still basically a normal person. Lying on the floor for a moment, the Lords heiress whimpers, taking no small amount of time to get back up.

The idea of answering the question is totally lost on her now; her whole body is singing out in pain, and she takes a few moments to just breathe and remind herself that she is, in fact, still alive. That may not exactly be a winning feeling right now, but it's one that the Lords heiress is going to go with. Eyes screwed shut in pain, she says, "Look, just -- just -- okay?!" she pleads, not actually putting together much of an answer.

Hopping forward, Tiffany begins whirling her arm around and around in circles, starting to build up a tremendous amount of bright, golden sparkle around the pinwheeling fist. "Guru, guru, guru..." she murmurs -- 'spin, spin, spin' -- as she maintains her stall stance, arm still spinning. When she's good and satisfied with the amount of energy she's built up, she swings her fist forward toward Lei Lei, finishing, "Guru-VY PUNCH!" as sparkles fly everywhere!

Tiffany          1/---<<<</<<<<<<<|=======\=====--\1          Lei Lei

As she releases from the ceiling there is a part of Lei Lei that thinks that might've been taking it way way too far but she shakes her head, she isn't the one that picked the fight after all. The moment of thought is more than enough to leave her surprised at the next attack Tiffany launches at her, the sparkles were unexpected at the very least as she tries to salvage what she can from the hit she utterly fails and there is a loud crack and pop as Lei Lei's arm is simultaneously dislocated and broken from the force and angle of the blow.

If she were still mortal, Lei Lei would probably be on the ground unconscious from the pain and quite likely vomiting from the bone damage unfortunately her nerves are dead enough she remains standing as a incredibly pained look cross her features and she cries out before she steps back from her opponent for a moment to figure out her next move.

A vicious grin breaks across her face as she decides her next move wrenching her body around she charges forward whiping the broken limb around and with another sickening pop uses the moment of her attack force it back into joint as the claws are replaced by a massive weight which hangs ominously over Tiffany before being dropped with crazy speed, whether it hits her or not there is a massive gym wide thud as it hit something and then as if by magic it's raining spiked metal balls from nowhere at all, "Haaaaaaaa!" She roars.

Tiffany          2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|====---\-------\0          Lei Lei

Though Tiffany tries to hurl herself out of the path of that enormous incoming weight, she can't quite make it happen; it comes down on her with all of its mighty force, and she is squashed beneath it. Though it doesn't quite /crush/ her, the cartoonish weight does take her quite some time to pull off of herself -- and with it, Lei Lei has tons and tons of time to breathe and consider her next move as the young lady gets herself out from underneath it.

"HEY!" Tiffany shouts at Lei Lei, as she finally hefts the weight -- just in time to be hit by those metal balls. With no choice but to let them rain down on her, she weathers the storm, murmuring, "Ow -- ow -- /ow/! Cut it OUT!" as she tries to find her footing.

After finally backpedaling out of the raining balls, Tiffany decides that now would be a /fantastic/ time to just take a second and breathe; she does just that, closing her eyes for a moment and breathing in through her nose, then opening them and breathing out through her mouth. Her gaze rests firmly on the jiangshi once those eyes open, as if daring her to try something.

COMBATSYS: Tiffany focuses on her next action.

Tiffany          2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|====---\-------\0          Lei Lei

Tiffany does her very best to minimize the blow from the massive weight and the painful spiked balls which is admirable but Lei Lei isn't interested in that right now, she's in full fight mode at the moment, "What did I just say about complaining!" She says with a odd sort of detached cheer as the cheerleader does just that about a fight she'd started.

She takes full advantage of the fact that the girl takes a moment to steady herself as she springs forward in a massive unearthly bound, the claws shaped into a fist looking more like a giant stamp plate than a proper fist, the hopping vampire aims square for the girl's forehead to knock her silly as possible!

Tiffany knows, in principle, that that incoming jab isn't much to worry about -- but even so, she's been trained pretty well to take the hopping vampire seriously at this point. Bringing her arms up, she takes the jab on the arms rather than the face, just like a good boxer should. "... OKAY, good point!" she admits at the mention of complaining -- as much as she's loath to admit that she's successfully been called out... she /has/.

There's got to be /some/ way to bring this to a close, Tiffany thinks -- some way to get this weirdo to back off and start answering her questions! But... how? What does she have up her (figurative) sleeve to beat whats up Lei Lei's (literal) sleeve? Her lips purse slightly as she thinks carefully about her potential offensive options...

... and then it hits her. Running up toward Lei Lei with a sudden burst of inspiration, Tiffany hurls herself into the air, doing a swift forward flip; her body whirls around, and eventually, her legs aim squarely for the jiangshi's shoulders, threatening to wrap her up tight --!!

Tiffany          0/-------/--<<<<<|=======\-------\0          Lei Lei

Resting her legs neatly on the jiangshi's shoulders, Tiffany whirls most of her body weight to one side, and begins, all at once... to spin. Her body goes into a high-speed whirl, legs still planted there, twirling the hopping vampire through the air! After a good few rotations, she sends herself into a final twist, swinging the vampire squarely toward the ground, and sending herself into a triumphant flip through the air.

The next few seconds are quite litterally a whirl of motion for the Jiang Shi, as her world goes spinning out of control she tries to use her claws to anchor her but they grab nothing but air, "Waugh!!!!" She blurts out a moment before her body slams hard into the gym floor before she bounces hard against it sending her up a few feet into the air, the jiang shi starts to black out but still annoyed by the cheerlearder starting a fight with her for no real reason from Lei Lei's perspective mutters, "Help me sister...."

As she hangs in the air floating like a leaf or sheet of paper in the air slowly falling back to the ground, out of her sleeve rolls an orb which continues rolling towards Tiffany's landing spot...



Then next to her on the ground is a metal ball with a demonic grinning face seemingly warped into the metal as the ball gets bigger and bigger by the second, the tell tale hissing soound of a fuse can be heard, as the face stops grinning and becomes more panicked by the second, this could be bad!

When she hears the hissing of a fuse, Tiffany does what any rational person would do: she hits the dirt immediately. Diving to the ground, she takes a long, deep breath as she waits for the explosion -- and sure enough, when it comes, she's got her head covered. The shockwave is more than enough to put her earnestly in a panic -- but when all is said and done, she's still hanging in there.

Slowly, groggily drawing herself to her feet, she moves toward the blacking-out jiangshi, asking with her characteristically brassy tone, "Okay -- I think I've EARNED some answers! Why are you here!? WHAT is your DEAL?!" It may be a little late to be seriously asking these questions, but... well, gotta start somewhen, one would suppose.

About midway through her walk, she decides to take a nice, slow sitsy-sit on the gym floor. Maybe just a short rest, while she demands answers. ... yeah.

COMBATSYS: Tiffany has ended the fight here.

Hovering between conscious and unconscious, Lei Lei forces one eye to stay open and focused on her interrogator and she loudly sighs before answering, "I'm here to investigate the weird things going on here." She answers while slowly taking on a position more like someone being laid to rest. She would be gracious in her defeat but she is careful in her answers least someone that needn't be become involved with the others like herself, "My deal? I'm just trying to help out if I can." She admits that freely enough though likely misunderstood the intent of the question.

"Any other questions interrogator?" The blue girl asks teasingly while she remains motionless, it'd take a while for the magic that made her body into what is to restore itself into good working condition though she could feel Lin Lin doing her best to speed the effort along, "Though I have to ask, do you go around picking fights with everyone that you see or just those you think strange?"

"... Well why didn't you say so?!" Tiffany says, with a big grin at the hopping vampire; despite the fact that she looks weird, Tiffany needs all the allies she can get! Scooting closer to the blue girl with a smile, she says, "I am, too!" The counter-question, though... /that/ gets a frown just as soon as she realizes the implications. "O -- oh, jeez... uh..."

She brings a hand up to her long, blonde curls, rubbing at the back of her head. "... kinda both..." she admits, shaking her head. "I've -- been kinda WOUND UP lately, since... there are people spying on us and stuff! And you WERE kinda SUSPICIOUS. Breaking into a school!!"

Trying her best to put a good face forward, she says, "I'm Tiffany Lords. GOOD to meet you, miss... uh..." She laughs nervously, then sighs out a long sigh, saying, "... blue... person."

"It could be because you started /demanding/ instead of /asking/." Again Lei Lei answers a bit barbed before she sighs again as Tiffany admits she's looking into it to, the Jiang Shi grins, "Then I suppose that'd make us allies....of a sort." She continues to lay there motionless save her mouth and the single eye she's kept open to look at Tiffany.

"I guess I have to give you that one, but in my defense it's hard for me to investigate any other way looking the way I do." There is an odd half proud and half bitter smile on her lips as she says that, "But taking your time and not getting wound up are important when investigating anything, otherwise you might jump to conclusions." The blue girl advises.

Lei Lei chuckles the first movement the rest of her body has done since she adopted the dead body pose, "Greetings Miss Lords, you may call me Lei Lei." While she chuckles again at being called a blue person, "I take it your investigations haven't uncovered anything...unusual like me?"

Though Tiffany clearly takes the reproach as it was intended, she doesn't dwell on it for long. "... yeah, GOOD POINT," she concedes, a little glumly. "Nice to meetcha, Lei Lei. And, uh... nope! Nothin'... quite like you. Just a lot of weird insistence on VACCINATIONS and principals with superpowers." She waves off the comment, saying, "Is that what you're lookin' for, then? More folks like you?"

She purses her lips a little, adding, "... I guess that's me jumpin' to conclusions again, though..." It is around here that she gets too embarrassed continue talking, instead deciding to just let the jiang shi volunteer any more information she might want to.

Lei Lei's body twitches in various places, "I see, that doesn't mean they're not around but it means I've definitely got to check to be sure." The hopping vampire opens both her eyes, "What sort of superpowers?" She asks before she chuckles again, "Similar but different, not all would look as weird as I do."

After a few twitches more Lei Lei, sits upwards but it looks more like she bends super stiffly and is no permanently bent at the waist due to how rigid her body seems, "Not a bad assumption due to what I asked." She grins, "But maybe tad hasty, like I said there are other similar things it could be, either way it looks like we have the same goals for the moment." She tilts her head slightly, "So for now, how about I lend you a hand and get to the bottom of what's going on?"

Nodding to the jiangshi, Tiffany accepts the offer with one of her winning smiles and a loud, "Sure thing!" She then adds, "Oh, just... really strong, hit me with his coat a lot, that kind of thing." Not any weird chi things that she /knew/, but... well, she wasn't as good at spotting strangeness when that happened, anyway.

It is as she finally realizes she should extend her hand to shake on the deal that she adds, "Is there, like... a way I can get in contact with you? Do you have a PHONE or something?" On the one hand, blue girls don't seem like they should have phones or other modern conveniences... but on the other, just assuming they don't puts her right back where they began, doesn't it?

"I see." Lei Lei restrains herself from giggling as hitting someone with a coat wouldn't be what she'd call a superpower but she'd seen a lot of strange things in her time. The vampire again takes her feet hopping up and oddly floating again before standing up right. Lei Lei shakes her head, "No, no phone." Lin Lin silently reminds her she should get one at some point to which Lei Lei chuckles sheepishly, "But you can find me down there." Lei Lei's claw indicates a more run down warehouse district in Southtown, "Just call my name and if I'm around I'll find you." She grins, "Though I'll be back to check around here some more as well."

Lei Lei's sleeve splits open to reveal a normal human arm save for like the rest of her, it is completely blue. She takes the offered hand and shakes, "I'll see you soon!~" She sing songs as she starts to hop away after her hand and arm disappear back into her sleeve.
