Miki - A Forgotten Eve

Description: Miki is drinking tea in a garden, conveniently alone. When suddenly, she's attacked by Eve, who makes the ultimatum: go willingly to get tested on, or get hurt? Miki does her best to fight without blowing her cover, but is no match for Eve's electrical power. She also attempts to talk Eve into not fighting her, but the NESTs agent will have none of that. Finally, Eve defeats her and she gets put in a tube by Atelier. ...Wait, this was all a dream?

The sun is setting like a closing eye, turning the sky a golden hue, with a heavy slash of red across the horizon.

Miki, dressed in her usual Seijyun outfit of an overly formal kimono, is sitting on a bench in an out-of-the-way little garden with lots of trees and archways. Conveniently, it's quite visible where she is from rooftop, but there's little way to see into the garden from ground level or most of the lower windows.

There's a tray with a teapot and cups and saucer - one filled with tea, the rest empty - and biscuits and so forth sitting on to the bench next to her. But for a little while, her attention does not seem to be focused there.

Finally, she turns towards the tray, and takes one of the saucers into her hand, raising the cup out of it with another hand for a delicate sip.

COMBATSYS: Miki has started a fight here.

So many students had been detected with potential chi capacities, yet they had so little time to perform all the required data analysis on them. NESTs had a few agents on the field, but the time was growing thin... And one of their most active agent on the field when it came to the capture of those targets was Eve. Simply because of her fervant need and desire to prove herself to her organisation.

This time, her mission brought her to Seijyun High. Eve wore her dark magenta leather armor over her body, which covered all of her body except for her head. Using her chi, the girl performed high jumps to get to the top of some of the school buildings, watching from afar to find her target, gliding from one building to the other. Like a bird of prey waiting in the sky above, Eve patiently waited for the right opportunity to strike : with few people around, and her target alone.

Finally, the time had come. Eve's lips curl into a wicked smile -- just the perfect time.

Using a blast of air under her to hurl herself in the air, Eve soars down toward Miki. Electricity crackles around her fist and right at the last moment, Eve shouts as she comes down crashing into Miki, electrifying fist first which unleashes an electric blast the moment she crashes down into Miki or something.

COMBATSYS: Eve has joined the fight here.

At the shout, Miki looks up, and jumps back, keeping her mouth closed, but Eve's electrified punch hits her arm as she withdraws, sending the tea and saucer flying to the ground.

She looks down at that mix of scorchmark and bruise that's forming on her arm where Eve's hand hit it and burnt through the delicate silk of her kimono, then looks back up to Eve uncomprehendingly. "Excuse me, Miss...? I don't know why you're attacking me. Have I caused some offence? Financial value aside, this kimono was given to me by my mother, I'm quite sad that you've ruined it."

"A few months ago I'd just fight you, but right now I'm focused on perfecting my Kung Fu forms in hopes of unlocking my true potential. I don't imagine I'd make a worthy opponent for someone like you." She tilts her head, watching Eve carefully.

"Why don't we talk things over for a while, before doing anything hasty...?"

COMBATSYS: Miki focuses on her next action.

A gust of wind summoned at the last moment allows to soften Eve's landing, making her fall to her knees after her diver. She slowly straightens herself up, lips curling into a smirk as she stares at Miki and her burnt kimono.

"It's simple," Eve says with a soft chuckle, "I'm here to take you with me, conscious or unconscious... There are some... Experiments we need to do on you," The blond girl explains. Her hands curl into fists, her hair slowly spiking up atop her head. Blue arcs of lightning dances across her body as she builds them up inside of her.

"You seem like a clever girl, resisting to this will only make your suffering worst. I promise, this won't hurt much, if you give in to me," Eve says, her lips curling into a sadistic, pleased smile.

COMBATSYS: Eve gathers her will.

Eve              1/----===/=======|======-\-------\0             Miki

Miki furrows her brow, not really wanting to hit Eve with her fist when she's filled with electrical energy. She slowly walks towards one of the end bench. "I had heard stories about some electric girl bothering people, but I had assumed they were just excuses to get out of class. However, I'm hardly going to go off for experiments with someone who attacks me and doesn't supply the proper consent forms. It seems I'll just have to defeat your chi powers using only my training...."

She jumps into the air, and lands on the opposite side of the bench, sending it hurling up into the air. As she hits the ground, she grabs onto it, and redirects the force of it towards Eve.

"...also, this bench."

COMBATSYS: Eve blocks Miki's Huge Random Weapon.

Heaving a soft sigh, Eve shakes her head slowly, as if she had been expecting this answer, "Why does nobody decide to take on the easy route? You've got a taste of what it will be to..." Alas, Eve doesn't have the time to complete her sentence that Miki hurls the bench her way.

Her eyes widen in surprise and Eve braces for impact, lifting her arms up to block the incoming bench. When it hits her, Eve lets a loud, enraged growl as she uses the electricity to blast it, causing it to blow into smaller splinters as she breaks it in half.

"Very well then! You'll see that I can do a lot more than just electricity," Eve says, lips curling into a wicked grin.

As if to prove her point, Eve uses the chi accumulated into her, focusing a moment and glaring at Miki's leg. It leaves Miki a second or two to react to the incoming geyser of steaming water that erupts at her feet, a torrent of water meant to engulf her momentarily. The moment it bursts out, Eve dashes foward, hurling an electrified fist through the steam of water, breaking through it and sending a powerful impulse of electricity at Miki.

She quickly follows up by grabbing Miki's arm and twisting on her heels to force her into her back a moment before she throws her off.

COMBATSYS: Eve successfully hits Miki with Torrential Impulse.

Eve              2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|=======\-------\0             Miki

Miki tries to discard the bench and leap out of the way, but a little too slowly, and the stream of water bursts up by the time it's out of her hands. She's electrocuted, grabbed, knocked onto her back, and then tossed backwards, rolling for a short distance from the force before falling still.

For a long moment, she's silent.

Then, she moves a little: "Perhaps if you informed people about what the experiments were for instead of immediately attacking them, they'd be more likely to go along with them." She leans back onto her hands, pushes herself back up, jumps to her feet, stumbles a bit. "Indeed, I can't think of a worse way to introduce yourself if you truly wish people to go along with your actions?"

"I believe from the feeling of your smile earlier, that asking is merely a formality, and you would indeed prefer to hurt them, even if it's ultimately less successful. Interesting."

A slight shrug of her shoulders, and she walks forwards, swirling her oversized sleeves around her arms so they wrap up and don't inhibit her movements, then aiming a fist of fist strikes that ends in a straight punch at Eve's face.

COMBATSYS: Miki successfully hits Eve with Strong Punch.

Eve              2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|=======\=------\1             Miki

It was not something Eve had realized up to now, but she did take some sadistic pleasure into inflicting this pain to the persons she was supposed to bring back. All she had to do was bring them back to the Atelier Group, and she felt none would agree to it, and as of sort, she more or less imposed them the painful way.

"Perhaps you're right," Eve answers, her lips curling into a smile. She gives her a shrug and shakes her head, "Let's have some fun together, shall we, then? The painful way is much more entertaining," She admits.

Eve tries to move out of the way when Miki walks toward her and swings her arms at her, but ends up smacked in the face rather brutally. She staggers back, slightly stunned by the blow, her arms flailing a moment to try and regain her balance and bearing. She growls in pain, one hand going to grasp her jaw a moment.

Eve glares at Miki, electricity crackling against her body. Her eyes were filled with that rage and sadistic desire to hurt her, and she opts for her most effective way to do it. With a stomp on the ground, Eve screams, unleashing the electricity gathered in her into the ground. The arcs of lightning swirls on the ground for a second, before it all bursts upward, meant to electrocute the other girl.

Empowered by her electricity, Eve charges at Miki and tries to use the discharge as an opportunity to get to her. She jumps at her, attempting to grapple her with her head with her legs, spinning around of her body to gain momentum and merely using her legs to hurl Miki some distance.

COMBATSYS: Eve successfully hits Miki with Power Surge.

"Have you given any thought to what might happen if a Seijyun student defeats you? The private security of the elite is seldom kind."

As Eve jumps towards Miki, she crouches down and picks up the bench, starts to interpose it between the two of them, but then the electrical charges up at her through the ground, and her guard lowers for a moment. Eve's feet break through the top part of the bench before the Seijyun student can get it up again to guard her properly, and her legs grasp onto Miki's neck, choking her before she flings her away.

Miki falls down to the ground undecorously once again, sleeves partially unwound, convulsing slightly.

She rolls to one side, and it's hard at first to tell if it's from convulsions or intentional, until she picks up the tea pot that was thrown off the bench earlier, moves up smoothly into a crouching position, and throws it with both hands towards Eve's stomach as she rises up towards her opponent.

COMBATSYS: Miki successfully hits Eve with Thrown Object.

Eve              0/-------/-<<<<<<|=======\===----\1             Miki

Panting softly, Eve rises back to her feet and she walks over in Miki's direction. Had she given a thought what would occur? A few times some students proved to be more troublesome but in the end, everything always ended well for Eve. Enough to give her a boost in confidence.

Her lips curl into a wicked grin and she replies, "This won't happen," By the way she was approaching her, Eve must have thought Miki was out of it after her powerful blast. When she suddenly rolls to the side and throws the tea pot at her, Eve tries to duck to avoid the incoming pot. Alas, this only makes it worst as she gets the pot right in her face, most of the hot water spilling in her face. She growls in pain, both hands going to her face to try and ease the burning sensation on her swollen skin.

"Why you, little..." She mutters under her breath. She clumsily rushes for Miki, attempting to punt her, her kick followed with the loud thunderous noise that comes with the electricity that flows through her limb.

COMBATSYS: Miki blocks Eve's Light Kick.

Eve              0/-------/=======|=======\===----\1             Miki

Miki lowers her stance again, blocking the kick with her palm. The electricity jolts through her, making her hair a little frizzier, and she takes a few steps back.

"Won't it? If you get captured and interrogated, you may spend the rest of your life without seeing sunlight. Even if you escape, your organization might no longer trust you, worrying you've been released on purpose, are a double agent knowingly or unknowingly. They might dispose of you. Whereas if you defeat me... what do you gain, exactly?" The kimonoed girl hardly moves her mouth as she speaks, and uses soft tones, despite the rather tense situation. "You aren't calculating risk versus reward very well."

She simultaneously rips both sleeves off her kimono, revealing muscular arms - as well as that the place where she was burnt and bruised earlier is already half-healed. She swings them around her hands, to... insulate them from electricity? Does that even work?

Regardless of if it works or not, that's what she does, and she steps back in towards Eve, raising her arms up towards the girl's neck, attempting to get her into a chokehold. "Perhaps it would be wiser for you to flee while you can."

COMBATSYS: Eve endures Miki's Strong Throw.

Eve              1/------=/=======|=======\===----\1             Miki

That's where Miki was all wrong -- the reward was worth well beyond the risk from Eve's point of view. Proving herself was what she craved the most, and there was no other way for her to achive this. The girl simply glares back at Miki, gritting her teeth. What did she gain? Her? Acknowledgement. That's all she wanted, the rest was all for the benefit of her organisation.

"That's none of your business," She replies, shaking her head. When Miki comes rushing to grasp Eve's throat, the girl doesn't even seem to move away from it. Instead, her arms reach out for Miki's own, to get a hold of her. The pain makes her wince, and she grunts a bit, but Eve attempts to pry herself free, sending a powerful blast of electricity through her and into Miki's body. She gives a powerful discharge, sending so much current that the electric surge ends up harming her as well. She tries to break the hold, and reverse it in her favor, twisting Miki's arm behind her back if she manages to break her chokehold, to lock one arm behind her back.

COMBATSYS: Miki fails to counter Excessive Discharge EX from Eve with Hard Stuff.

It turns out silk is an insulator against electricity. It's roughly as good as air. However, even if it'd help against /this/ much electricity, once Eve's got hold of her arms, it doesn't really help anymore.

Miki starts moving as she sees the elecricity buildup, raising one foot and releasing one hand from Eve's neck. However, as she's shocked, this movement is abbreviated, her muscles convulsing involuntarily, her remaining arm unable to hold onto Eve's neck particularly well. Her arm is twisted behind her back, and she falls to her knees, completely at Eve's mercy.

She breathes heavily, mouth open, although it's likely Eve can't see her fangs at this angle. It's a few moments before she gathers the strength to speak again. "You're strong. Another thought occurs to me: would you like a lot of money? I could get that for you, if you left me out of whatever this crazy experiment is." Her voice sounds a little rougher, deeper. Growly, almost.

With a growl, Eve shakes her head and she presses the arm lock, causing a bit of pain to Miki. "I don't want your money, that's not what I'm after," She says, narrowing her eyes into a glare. "Don't worry though... You've done the worst part," Eve says, in a soothing voice.

She leans down a bit to whisper to Miki's ears, "It will all seem like a dream, and they'll take good care of you. But I think it's best for you to sleep soundly for now," Eve says, lifting her free hand up, at the base of Miki's neck, trying to send just one punctual discharge to finish the work.

"Sure. Had to ask." Miki tries to move a little, but, armlock aside, neither her body nor her spirit is really responding to her, and she stops trying after a moment.

She blinks as Eve whispers in her ear. "Oh? Do I get to live? That's nice. Thank you."

Then the discharge to her neck goes off, and her body goes limp.

Panting softly, Eve straightens herself up once Miki's body goes limp. She holds in against herself, a grin of satisfaction on her lips, "You'll live, you'll even get healed, lucky girl.." Eve says with a soft chuckle.

She reaches out for special tracking device and presses a few buttons on it, to request a pickup team to get Miki to the Atelier Group pavillion. There, she'll have the chance to go through the special scanning process and entubing one, which consists of being in a tube filled with a special gel, to give her partial amnesia about the recent events, making them appear like a dream, but also make her recover from the burns and marks of their fight.
