Description: Yet another mission that brings Eve into the vicinity of Gedo High to harvest one of their prodige. Will Kazuki finally be able to put an end to all of Eve's student beating?
The Inter-High Tournament was a thing of the past for Kazuki Kirigana. He had, in fact, but the thing behind him. He instead, used the defeat as a sort of fuel. He had found it interesting that though he would not have resisted any medical attention from Atelier after the fight. However, Kobayashi-sempai had deftly gotten him clear of the Atelier staff.
He never really asked why, just chalked it up to Miko being Miko. Besides, his injuries were not all that severe. In fact, his thoughts were of that enigmatic upperclassman, with Lindsey Stirling playing in the earphones he was wearing. Just a young man, not really looking for any trouble, despite the Gedo High uniform.
Kirigana was on his way home from class at the end of the day, the skies taking on that reddish hue of oncoming sunset.
New orders from above. One of the fighter had slipped around the medical testing and it was Eve's mission to make sure he would come with her for their special data harvesting.
Her modus operandi was rather simple : stalking up her prey until they're alone, and then strike them down and force them to come with her once they're unconscious. This time, Eve is trying something different...
The blonde girl appears in frnt of Kazuki. She is clad in a suit of leather that looks like some modern battlesuit of sort. She stares at Kazuki, and the girl calls out to him, noticing the earphones, loud enough to try and get his attention, "Kazuki Kirigana!?" Though she's certain she's got the right person, her question was more rhetoric, "Hands up... You're going to come with me, willingly... Unless you have to suffer," Her lips curl into a smirk and she says, "I've got some... Tests to do on you. I promise, I'll be gentle, you won't suffer if you come willingly, it'll be like a dream..."
Kazuki looks the young blonde over with a mild bit of curiousity as he slides the headphones off. He considers carefully for a moment. Her music... it's not anything comforting. It speaks of nothing but trouble, really. The aikidoka frowns a bit. Her intent is clear from her words and her expression. He takes a step forward, then another, then attempts to simply walk by the woman while sliding the headphones back on.
"I must humbly decline your request," he says, using the keigo that is second nature to him. "I have other obligations that I must attend to." He makes no aggressive move against the woman, moving to one side in order to walk by with out any physical contact.
This young man should be honored -- it is, after all, the first target she has decided to offer a chance to surrender and come with her before attacking him.
Alas, this approach seems fruitless.
The girl allows Kazuki to walk pass her, no doing anything to stop him. Her lips curl into a sadistic smirk. It felt much more rewarding to come back with an unconscious victim with her, like a cat who brings a bird to its master as a reward. "So you've decided to suffer... So be it,"
Eve turns on her heels, drawing into her inner reserves, manifesting her chi into electricity that crackles and dances on her forearm.
With a bit of luck, attacking him from behind will prove to be just as effective a sneak attack... Maybe.

And so, Eve lunges at Kazuki, swinging her fist right for Kazuki's head. She has no remorse in attacking him from behind. While she might lack the proper strength, the electricity that discharges upon impact is the true menace that empowers her fist.

Eve's punch is barely in motion when Kazuki's hand whips upward to catch the strike in an open palm. Electricity crackles down through the hand and wrist, drawing a wince from the young man. "That's unfortunate," the young man says, "I was hoping we could avoid this, though."
Kazuki tightens the grip on the woman's hand and pivots as he reaches for the elbow of Eve's punching arm before attempting to continue the movement for a simple over-the-shoulder throw to bring the woman to the sidewalk!

The girl's eyes widen in surprise for a second when Kazuki manages to catch her fist in his palm. Her smile widens into a large rictus, "It shouldn't take long, I'll try to make you suffer as little as possible... If you're good,"
When his grip tightens on her hand and grapple her, Eve presses into his grapple and tries to catch his arm with her free hand, giving him all the leisure to slam him against the sidewalk. The girl rolls on her back and winces at the fall. Though by the time she has fallen, she has a perfect grip over his arm. She quickly twists the arm, using joint manipulation to maximize the pain and catch him into an armlock. She sends a powerful blast of electricity through both of her hands, the electricity discharging through it to sizzle him, "Let's see how long you'll resist the electricity!" She says, attempting to shove him over her after a moment of discharge, using her feet to throw him over her.
COMBATSYS: Eve successfully hits Kazuki with Medium Throw.

Kazuki lets out a snarl of pain as the chi surges through him, and a whuff of breath as he hits the ground. He rolls once, picking himself up and straighten his uniform out. He settles the headphones around his neck, and the violin mixed with heavy beats wafts from them. Kirigana takes another deep breath before settling into a fighting stance.
"I believe that I said no," Kazuki says evenly, without rancor, "I would prefer if you left me alone."
Having said that, Kazuki charges in and drives a series of strikes aimed at Eve's stomach, sternum and neck, all aimed at robbing the woman of her ability to breathe easily. A faint green aura sheathes his hands as they drive for their targets!

Once the blond girl has managed to throw Kazuki away from her, she straightens herself up, glancing over to him. Her lips curl into a smile as he gets into a fighting stance and puts down his headphones. Likewise, she prepares herself for him.
"You will come with me," She answers, "Unconscious if I must," The blonde girl adds. When Kazuki charges, Eve braces for his attack. She takes steps back, swiftly moving along with every strike he does, lifting her arms up in times to take the blows on her forearms, her own chi flaring out of her forearms to absorb Kazuki's own one.
"Ah! I see why they've decided to study you... As much as I take pleasure in fighting you, I prefer to make this quick!" Once Eve believes she has an opening, she retaliates. She spreads her arms wide open, and a sudden swirling maelstrom of boiling water quickly rises around her like a tornado, gushing upward and hopefully catching Kazuki into the searing torrent and knocking him back.

"I am sorry," Kazuki says as he braces up and brings his arms in front of his head and chest to protect himself. His uniform tears and scorches as he slides back. "But I cannot imagine any situation where I can take what you just said as an incentive to actually do as you ask." Kazuki charges in, hopefully before the woman can lower her arms.
"I am afraid I must decline."
Kazuki drives a punch at Eve's chest before grabbing one of those outstretched arm in order to shoulder throw her once more!

Kazuki 1/---====/=======|=======\===----\1 Eve
Once the torrent of water subsides, the blonde girl glares at Kazuki, "You are just like the others... Tsss, why do you insist on suffering, hum? Is submitting so hard?" The girl asks, "No matter, I take great pride in bringing by prey back to my masters," She adds, her smile widening at the though.
The blonde girl winces when Kazumi manages to punch her chest, though when he attempts to grapple her, Eve proves to be much faster than he is. Her arms reach out for Kazuki's arm, giving yet another powerful discharge of electricity to disrupt his attack. She uses her grip over his arm to spin around him, her legs reaching out for Kazuki's neck while she coils around his arm like a snake. She gives herself a swing, to make Kazuki fall down and slam him down.
Kazuki is too busy not yelling from the electricity to yell from anything else; the sheer voltage from the attack is enough to take the young man's breath away. When itr finally stops, he is lefting gasping for air as he stares at the evening sky. He winces, trying to blink vision back into his eyes. He's... not entirely sure why he is doing that after a moment. His sense of hearing, between the fact that the basic sense is pretty sharp to begin with, along with the talent he was born with, are generally enough that he can operate in a great many situations without relying on his sight at all.
The aikido prodigy drags himself to his feet, his eyes still blurry from the sheer amount of abuse he has suffered but still managing to face Eve cleanly. "You don't sound like much more than an animal," he finally rasps out. "Speaking of prey and masters like you do." His breaths come in less raggedly as he talks. "Makes me wonder..." Another breath, helping to let Kazuki hear the flow of life around him. "...if you have a thought of your own in your head."
It may or may not become clear to Eve that Kazuki is trying to buy himself a little time to do... /something/. It might be a mystery, to someone who knows so little of the Gedo student, what that might be. He's trying to hear Eve just a little bit better.
COMBATSYS: Kazuki focuses on his next action.
[ \\\\\\\\\\\\ < > /////////////////// ]
Kazuki 1/---====/=======|=======\===----\1 Eve
The blonde woman straightens herself up to her feet once she has discharged some more into Kazuki. Despite all of the electricity she has unleashed into him, it felt like her body was still surging with mor electric charges the more the longer their fight dragged on. The arcs of lightning dances across her body every now and then, almost as instinctively as it is to breath.
Her lips are curled into a tight smirk and Eve moistens her lips in delight. She enjoyed every part of this, his suffering, as if it was what her masters wanted of her. His words are enough though to make Eve grunt, her features twisting a bit with rage. Her hands clench into fists, causing electric arcs to jolt across her body, "Wha... Don't you dare!" She shouts with a growl.
"I'll show you pain," Eve replies, glaring at him. Her inner chi burns just brighter now that he has insulted her, focusing as she channels it ouside of her, manifesting it underneath Kazuki's feet. The rough song that comes with her aura perhaps even intensifying such as her determination to finish this.
If Kazuki fails to react in time, Eve's chi will manifest underneath him as a sudden and uprising blast of water, like a geyser that bursts up. The girl literally lunges foward, breaking through with an electrified fist aimed for Kazuki's midsection, empowering it with the water that might have doused him.
If the hit connects and discharges the powerful impulse, Eve's free hand will reach out for Kazuki's arm in an attempt to give him a shoulder throw to slam him down against the pavement.

Kazuki 0/-------/----===|=======\====---\1 Eve
That did it. Eve might be too into her rage to notice two things: The first is that Kazuki's eyes are completely closed. His vision had not returned before Eve had made her move, so he simply removed what would have otherwise been something of a distraction. The second thing is that Kazuki has the faintest of grins. His jibe did the trick, forcing not only a physical reaction but an emotional one as well.
The fist comes in and between Eve's intent and the sheer amount of energy running through the strike, Kazuki can make out the form of her technique as if someone were explaining it in perfect detail. He knows full well that he's not in shape to take the hit, nor is he quite ready to try to evade the strike. His best option, therefore, would be to disrupt it.
He steps in quickly, his left hand snaking out to grab Eve's arm just inside the wrist. A tug on the arm, and stiff shove inside the shoulder with his right arm forces Eve to the ground with Kazuki still holding onto the arm. He takes another swift step in, planting his right foot in Eve's shoulder even as his right hand grips the upraised arm. "I'm sorry about this," Kazuki says honestly, "I'd have rather we simply parted ways."
And then Kazuki pulls upward with both arms even as he holds Eve's shoulder to the ground with his foot. There may be a wet, ripping sound as the aikidoka attempts to flat-out dislocate Eve's shoulder!
The girl thought Kazuki might have been blinded by the discharge she has given him. It makes things all the better for her, finishing off should be easy. Opting for a powerful and slower attack seemed perfect to close the deal. However, too much confidence mixed with this choice of attack proves to be a rather bad idea as Kazuki interrupt her attack before she can get into the bulk of it.
The girl attempts to struggle, but the boy manages to twist her arm and force her on the ground before she has the chance to get in a good position. His foot on her shoulder and the pressure against her wrist makes her cry in pain. "There's no pain you can do..." Eve grits under her teeth as she squirms and tries to resist the pain from his push. "... That would be worse than failing to bring you back.."
There's an audible 'pop' when Kazuki actually manages to dislocate Eve's shoulder, followed by tears and a scream of pain. The arcs of electricity dancing around her though seems to intensify from the keen pain she feels coursing through her. The electricity in her has built up to a dangerous critical level where even the charges in her are hurting her. In her current position though, she finds no other way to free herself from this torment aside from unleashing a myrica of chaotic lightning bolts from her body. Arcs of lightning blasting all around her, almost in a blind pattern, hitting random objects around the street.
Hopefully, this will push Kazuki off from her long enough for her to rise and escape this painful position, and at best, the powerful surge and blast of on-going electricity and lightning arc will knock him out or blast him off from her.

Kazuki 0/-------/--=====|=======\======-\1 Eve
Kazuki is once again struck breathless as he is sent flying into a nearby lamppost. The impact is resounding as the aikidoka slumps to the ground. This many shocks simply can NOT be good for a person. Kirigana cannot seem to get his bearings. Up and down are not in the directions he would have thought they were, even with the ground beneath him and the surface that he would have (seconds ago) assumed was vertical. His breathing is ragged, his eyes still closed, his face a rictus of pain.
"I would imgaine that that might have been close, though," Kazuki wheezes out, a puff of black smoke escaping with the air used to carry his words. "You should go have that looked at," he says after another moment. "Get that properly reset before it heals improperly. A dislocated shoulder is usually considered a serious injury."
Nothing about Eve's discharges can be good for someone's health. Fortunately, if Kazuki fails to Eve's fury, he will have the chance to recover incredibly fast, and his encounter with Eve will seem like a dream. As for Eve... All the pain and suffering will remain, and it's all too real for now.
The girl whines loudly as she manages to get back to her feet, one of her arm hanging limply. The adrenaline helps her bear a bit of the pain, but it was probably more than any of the students had made her endure so far. She is panting loudly, from the exertion he's forced her through. She holds her shoulder, in a vain attempt to ease the pain and place it back but she lacks the proper strength to do such a thing.
"You're tough... But the more you resist... Ack.." She grunts in pain as she approaches him, "... I won't let you get the best of me," Once she's close enough to him, she opts for a high kick to Kazuki's face, the motion of her leg followed by the loud crackling noise of electricity that discharges upon impact.

Kazuki tries to stand one last time, to face this maniac with all the strength and fury that Gedo students are generally known for. Or at least just the strength; Kazuki is not all that big on fury. He lurches forward, attempting to disrupt the attack once more. A weak wind stirs as the young man moves. But Kazuki's efforts, such as they are, bring him only one thing.
A boot to the head.
There is a loud *CRACK!* from the combination of impact and the electrical discharge, and Kazuki Kirigana slumps to one side unconscious. He twitches now and again from all of the electricity that has been sent through his system. It could be considered a minor miracle that he was able to fight Eve off to the extent that he had. All that is left for Eve is to bring home her prize... which might be difficult with the dislocated shoulder.
Once Kazuki finally falls, Eve pants loudly and she stares at him, "You've given me trouble.." She mutters under her breath. She reaches out with her valid hand for a cellphone, making a special number on it to call up a team to fetch up Kazuki, like she did with the others.
She attempts to lift him up, but the pain in her arm prevents her from doing much of anything, aside from grabbing his collar with her valid hand and try to drag him out of sight for the time being...
Once the recovery team will take Kazuki, he'll be taken off to the Atelier Group pavillon, where he'll be entubed, scanned and healed through their special technology, the drugs in his body causing partial memory loss. He'll wake up eventually, the next day, in the nurse office in Gedo High.
