Description: As twilight approaches and the sun comes down, the final match of the evening will between Spetsnaz specialist Sergei and the mysterious Nightmare Spangles otherwise known as Jezebel. The sheep, normally able to sense evil, seem to only be confused by the presence of the washed-up actress however. Sensing the inner spirit of Lightning Spangles in Nightmare Spangles, the sheep will come to the aid of Jezebel, throwing themselves in the path of Sergei. As the fight goes on, the more . Will Nightmare Spangles manage to earn herself a sheep victory, or will Sergei end up bleating the competition? <Winner: Sergei?
And after two other matches, evening began to cast in the valley.
The Hidden Retreat was cooling down now, as twilight began to stretch over the valley. The massive herd of sheep was resting now, relaxing in the cool grass. They had endured two fights already. And soon would be the last fight. It was quiet. Peaceful. Serene.
And the drone of helicopters come.
The helicopters pull in from two opposite directions, one from the north, one from the south. One was a Mil Mi-26, a russian cargo helicoptor in service with the VVS. The other? A relabeled Z-18 Chinese surplus, almost certainly procured through back-channel deals, painted tan and black. The pair of helicopters circle over the valley, over the herd of sheep that... doesn't seem agitated at all.
And from the Z-18, emerges Nightmare Spangles.
The woman was dressed in brown camo pants, stacked with pockets up and down. Wearing a black tanktop, her arms are exposed, and surprisingly muscled and toned. Her long mousy-brown hair trails behind her in a long braid, which whips in the wind of the whirring helicopter blades. Across her mouth, she wears a black bandana. Squinting her bright blue eyes across the valley, she stares at the other helicopter from the open door.. She was here for a SNF match. That much she knew.
But she didn't expect that the OTHER opponent was showing up in a helicopter as well!
From the Mil mi-26, appears the fearsome ďWhite Angel of DeathĒ Sergei.
He prepared to go with the plan of defeating Nightmare, then bringing her in for questioning. He made sure to bring in the helicopter to transport her, but was generally surprised that she also came in on helicopter. He signaled the pilot to land in a mostly sheep free spot.
he walked out of the Mil mi-26 in a brand new uniform, waiting for the manic Nightmare Spangles.
For her purposes, Nightmare Spangles wasn't gonna have the copter land.
The copter was, of course, Shadaloo standard. Hooking herself to a lanyard, a long cable is sent down. Briskly, just like she practiced before, she rappels down the cable, into the sheep below. Landing amongst the beasts, they immediately swarm her, nuzzling her affectionately. Laughing from behind the bandana, she pets the sheeps with equal cheer, letting the Mi-26 land. When Sergei emerges, she finally looks up, giving a finishing pat on the head of a single lamb.
The voice that comes out was bright and cheerful, as Jezebel locks her eyes on Sergei's own cold eyes. "I'm Nightmare Spangles! I sure didn't think you'd be coming in on a helicopter as well! That sure is something!" She laughs out loud again, her eyes wide and somewhat... trembling. There was a restrained nervousness in his eyes. Inspecting the man, the cable is drawn back up to the circling helicopter. Jezebel crouches down, petting one of the lambs that had come up, demanding attention. "Well, gosh, aren't these the cutest critter you've seen?"
They really were cute.
The adorableness of the sea of the wool did not move Sergeiís cold face. The sheep flocked to Nightmare Spangles, but were wary of Sergei. He walked into the position for the fight with the foul, mad, woman-child.
Well, he wasn't that expressive.
As Jezebel waited for a response from the man, a verbal confirmation, she gets... nothing. Except a glare, and a man falling into a defensive stance. "Well, shoot. You are quieter than a rock at a... rock garden." She shakes her head. "Wow, that was terrible, I guess I can't write my own stuff, can I?" She rises up from her lamb petting, as the sheep seem to congregate around her. "So anyways, I guess we gotta fight now, don't we?" She looks up at the helicopter, and nods as a flare shoots out from it. "Yep, that's the signal!"
And Jezebel falls into her defensive stance.
Legs apart, she adopts a formal Tae Kwon Do stance. Eyes bright, she keeps them on Sergei as she shakes her fists, her guard coming to bear. She was clumsy, she was slow. But one thing that Sergei could see from here, if he could notice, is that there was a desperate recklessness in her body language. She didn't care to win or die.
She just wanted to live.

Sergei noticed she seemed reckless. She looked like she was unnerved by his presence. She had likely seen his other fights and saw the states of Sergeiís opponents.
Sergei wanted to deal with her quickly, and charged with his fist pulled back. He aimed to strike her right into the eye and gouge at it.

It was supposed to be a friendly match.
And then Sergei comes in with the eye gouge.
Jezebel was still caught up in petting the sheep as Sergei comes in. While her guard is up, she attempts to deflect the punch. And for that purpose, she mostly succeeds. The blow is grazed, and suddenly, visciously, violently, it goes straight to her eye. The gouge comes, and it... well, Jezebel screams. Nightmare spangles screams, and the sheep suddenly baa in unison, trying to help Jezebel, trying to come to her aid. And all Jezebel can do is sputter out.
"I can't... SEE!?"
Barely able to rip away from Sergei, her eye is shut tight, blood pouring out from underneath it. It hurt, everything hurt, and one side was all black. She was confused, stunned, and in agony. She starts to lash out a kick, a desperate, frantic kick. She is just barely able to restrain herself. She couldn't be afraid. She -wouldn't- be afraid.
And instead, she backflips away.
Arcing high in the air, she sweeps her legs around in a wide arc. Heel burning, silver-grey energy surges over her as she slams the leg downwards, energy flowing over her. The silver energy would come in three orbs, each one pummeling down around Sergei. And after a split second of hitting the... the sheep? They would erupt in a plume of silver flashes, bursts of energy exploding out. The sheep would be blown away.
But otherwise, unharmed.

After giving Nightmare Spangles a wonderful view of Sergeiís fist, the Spetsnaz put something into his pocket. He jumps and rolls away from the blast just as he was trained to. He avoids the flying sheep and targets the half blind child killer. He jumps off a ewe and prepares a scissor take down.

Jezebel 1/----===/=======|=------\-------\0 Sergei
As the sheep fall to the ground, a figure comes through the pieces of wool. Sergei jumps onto Nightmare Spangles by grabbing her thighs with his legs. He flings her right into the ground with a crack! Her pelvis is broken and she withers in pain on the ground. Before she stands up, the Russian takes the lamb she stroked before the start of the fight. He takes the hardy little lamb that is crying in fear, and starts to smother Jezebel with the poor animal. The lamb continues to scream in terror, pain, and for poor Spangles, knowing that she is hurting her but cannot stop.
Jezebel was trying.
God bless her, she was trying.
The sheep swarm around her, fighting as she fiercely struggles with the blasts. Landing squarely amongst the sheep, they were forming a shield around her, trying to protect her. They could protect against a lot.
But not against pure Spetnaz terror.
The Russian surges in as Jezebel tries to defend... but what could she defend against? The man clamps around her with both legs, and wrenches her to the ground. Jezebel shrieks in pain as she is brought down. Body burning, everything burning, she is crushed as her bones begin to crumble agains the pure force of the fighter. Silver energy cascades around her as she writhes amongst the sheep. She was blind in one eye. Now there was a serious question if she could walk again. And yet, the lamb was crying, as she was being smothered. The silver energy kept coming around her.
And suddenly, she launches forward a kick, attempting to send Sergei off her, and into the air.

Jezebel sends out a kick to get Sergei off. The full force of the blow however lands not on Sergei, but on the poor innocent lamb. Sergei is knock back a few feet, while the lamb flies high into the cold icy air.
The Spetsnaz figuring he has likely crippled her eye and her legs, he might as well get her torso. He goes to grab her by the arm. He pulls his leg back to strike her ribs with enough force to pierce her lung.

Okay, NOW he was going for kicks.
Jezebel only manages to force the Russian off her, as she struggles into a stand. Everything hurt. Every single thing hurt. But she couldn't let it break her. Eye still shut, her legs feeling like jelly, she barely kept herself together as Sergei roars in with a kick. That was something she could actually respond to. Throwing up her guard, she catches the kick, stopping it cold with her arms. The blow nearly knocks her over, however, as weakness overcomes her. Whimpering, she fights, fights to keep steady.
And she musters a counter kick of her own.
"I'm not gonna go down!" She states as she swings her leg around, silver energy trailing. She was aiming to catch Sergei in the gut with the swing of her leg, to catch him and send him skyward again. The lambs were at her side, assisting her, encouraging her. Fighting for her. Should she manage to seize Sergei in the stomach, she would send herself up in the air with him, to carry him aloft into the air. And with a pivot, she would slam her heel down, to send Sergei back to earth with an explosion of silver energy. She could win this.
She just had to believe.

The forceful kick is caught by the basket case with a flimsy sense of reality. Before Sergei can withdraw it, she kicks him up into the air. She pivots and slams Sergei back to the ground. He stands up amongst the sheep covered in dirt, grass, and some other unsanitary things.
Sergei swings his leg up to Jezebelís shoulder to strike her and pull her to the ground.

Nightmare Spangles was never going to let herself run out of that burning spirit.
Still blind in one eye and feeling her bones groaning, Jezebel unleashes the two-kick combo, landing firmly on both feet... and nearly collapsing on the impact. Barely recovering, the sheep bah aloud, throwing themselves around the actress as Sergei hurls himself in with the hooking leg. She attempts to evade, attempts to dodge... but is promptly caught and -spiked-. Shrieking in pain, she writhes on the ground... and into another stand. Gasping for air, she comes back up again.
"I'm not... beaten... just yet!"
Those were the words from the Anti-American Villain as Jezebel stands fast. "I'm not gonna lose! I'm not gonna stop! I'm Nightmare Spangles! I'm the greatest person in the world! I'm a hero! A heroine! And I am never, never ever gonna give up. I am never, ever let you down! I'm never ever gonna hurt... hurt...." And she thrusts her arm into the air.
"Never gonna hurt yooooooou~"

With his foe weakened, Sergei goes in to kick her right in the face. He would end this miserable failure. Once down he would bring her to his helicopter and take her for questioning. If her chopper interfered it would not be a grave issue. Sergei made sure to be prepared for such interference with cold efficiency.

Jezebel 1/--=====/=======|=======\-------\0 Sergei
Madness, inspiring madness.
The frantic fever of lambs and sheep and ewes and rams around her burns within, as she flares up with silver energy. Staring down the barrel of Sergei, she stares down as the kick to the face comes. Sweeping her arms around, she attempting to beat the kick away... but is in fact to slow. The blow comes with staggering force, knocking her squarely down to the ground. She gasps for air, fighting furiously in the face of the assault. Laying face down in the field, there was groaning and a heaving sob.
A heaving sob... into laughter.
"Ha ha ha..." She begins, as she fights into a stand. "I won't... I won't go down... I won't give up..." She struggles to mouth, as she forces herself upright. Her face was swollen like a balloon, with one eye shut. And yet, behind that bandada, she was grinning. "Because..." She gasps, struggling to keep upright.
COMBATSYS: Jezebel can no longer fight.

"Because... I should be... I should still be...."
She throws out a roundhouse kick in the air, an orb of silver energy rioting out. "I should still be...." She begins to stumble, as another roundhouse kick comes roaring out. The lambs scatter, as a third one comes out, flailing lightly. "Because... I should still be.... still be..." Each orb of energy flickers forward, as she collapses amongst the lambs, the creatures nuzzlin the downed form of Nightmare Spangles. "Because...." She sings softly to herself.
"Because I'm still a hero..."
"And heroes... never.... die..."
The trembling Nightmare Spangles send out three silver orbs at Sergei. Sergei grabs a nearby ewe by the scruff of the neck. He swings at each orb with the sheep absorbing them and then flung it away.
With Nightmare Spangles down, Sergei rushes to her. He scoops her up, and runs straight for his helicopter while having to dodge the angry sheep.
He jumps in, and ties and gags Jezebel. As the his Mil mi-26 starts to take off, the Shadaloo chopper starts to rev up. Sergei reaches for his rifle as he prepares for a shoot out with the Z-18.
COMBATSYS: Sergei has ended the fight here.
The Z-18 hovers overhead, as Jezebel moans on the ground.
As Sergei sweeps away and tosses away the victim sheep, the Sheep explodes three times, each pop sending it up higher and higher into the air. By the time it lands, it happily baas and saunters away. Jezebel is lifted up, and she groggily realizes that... it wasn't Cracker Jack taking her away. It was Sergei. But... why? She finds herself quickly tied and gagged, a blur of action confusing an already dazed Jezebel. She couldn't give a response herself.
The response comes at the sound of a RPG-7.
The blast of the rocket comes from within the Z-18, not from itself. As Sergei just barely mans the rifle, one of the crew members already opened fire. The rocket surges through the air, aiming straight for the Mi-26. This was an act of war. This was an act of terrorism. But as the rocket tears through the other helicopter, two things were certain.
1) Sergei wasn't going to be given Jezebel alive.
2) They obviously expected Jezebel could -survive- collateral damage from a rocket.
Sergei was surprised at the sight the RPG. He did not expect for Shadaloo to act so aggressively on sight. As the RPG hits his helicopter, he grabs Nightmare Spangles before the helicopter crashes and jumps.
They land on a pile of sheep that formed to save Jezebel. Sergei realizes while his ride was down, the Z-18 just committed an act of terror in Switzerland. If he was able to get to a more civilized area, the Swiss military could help.
Sergei put Nightmare Spangles on his back, and got on the back of the strongest and largest ram he saw. Using lighter sheep as shielding, Sergei started to ride to the nearest town on sheep back with Jezebel in tow.
It was a battle between sheep and helicopter.
After the first volley comes, Jezebel shuts her eyes tight, ready to die. Instead, she is scooped up by the Russian, and carried free of the exploding chopper. "MMMPH!?" She grunts, as the Z-18 drones overhead, dipping low. A spray of rifle fire follows up, but as Sergei mounts the ram, the other sheep seem to bound in the path of the fire, harmlessly taking the hits for Jezebel, and by proxy, Sergei.
The lambs were still working to protect Nightmare Spangles.
Tears comes to her eye as the Ram continues to press towards the only way out of the Hidden Refuge: the pass. Bounding faster and faster, another rocket is loaded into the RPG-7. It seemed, for a moment, that the man would aim for the ram; a direct hit would be the end of Ram, Sergei, and Jezebel too. And yet, he falters, he holds. There is a delay, until finally, the rocket is shot. Not towards the sheep, no.
But to the pass.
The landslide comes with a roar, blocking the pass with an avalanche of boulders. The ram would have nowhere to go now; it could not nearly jump high enough to scale the full bear of the landslide. The Swiss government would learn of this, certainly. And yet, the Z-18 hangs in the air, three men training rifles on Sergei now. They had given a Russian a choice.
Give up Jezebel?
Or give up his life.
Sergei was trapped and given an ultimatum. He turns Nightmare Spangles to face the helicopter. He readjusts his hold, while slipping a small device into her back pocket. Sergei lets go off Jezebel and rides off away from the helicopter.
When out of the helicopterís sight, Sergei starts to call in for assistance.
Jezebel finds herself laying in the grass.
She groans, mouth still gagged as the whirring noise grows louder. She rolls over, as her hair is blown about. She didn't know what was put on her. But suddenly, Shadaloo agents are around her. She feels herself being lifted, heaved over a shoulder. And then, she feels herself... in the chopper. She grunts, happily, as she is lifted up, higher and higher.
It meant thank you, friends.
With Nightmare Spangles retrieved, the Shadaloo chopper starts to head out of the valley. Just as the cross over a ridge, several Swiss military helicopters enter the valley in hot pursuit. The Swiss choppers start chasing the Shadaloo into the fading light.
