SNF 2017.04 - SNF: Last Train to Kirishima Springs

[Toggle Names]

Description: World wrestling darling Rainbow Mika seeks to return to her glory at the top of the fighter's spotlight, as Southtown Syndicate enforcer 'Rochelle' journeys out of the secret world beneath Japan to test herself once again. They meet on a flatbed train heading up a mountain, where the victor will bask in the sacred spirits of the Japanese springs.

Rainbow Mika has a long road ahead of her. While she's been a swiftly rising star in the wrestling scene, she's not above booking whatever fight will get her some much needed facetime. In truth, even if she didn't need the publicity, Rainbow Mika is the sort who is always seeking a challenge--a new obstacle to help her in her rise to being the greatest professional wrestler of this generation.

Rainbow Mika has a long road ahead of her, but it just so happens that today that road is by rail. Her most recent fight has put her on the back of flatbed rail car heading up to Kirishima Onsen. She's presently doing some stretches to loosen her muscles for the upcoming fight. Like any organized event, there's some degree standard to it.

"HEY!" Mika calls to her opponent, "Let's have a good fight, alright?!" She doesn't mean to sound rude, but Mika, by definition, tends to be loud.

Rochelle was broken and bruised months ago, by a nearly fatal attack by an unknown vigilante that penetrated Geese's fortress and broke her as if she was so much chaffe being discarded by a wantonly careless reaper. But now, having fought and trained and rehewn herself, she is ready to fight again. And to test her steel, her mettle, her macht, she has entered Saturday Night Fights, to face an opponent that matches her in a way she hopes will help her regain her center. Here, atop the back of the train, Rochelle finds herself, prepared to battle Rainbow Mika. Rainbow Mika is a rising star, one who already hangs bright in the horizon, and Rochelle is but a glittering butterfly on a palm leaf in the night, stars alight behind her as her wings rest from the journey on the breeze.

Rochelle steps up atop the flatbed, standing in place and looking at Rainbow Mika with a tight, neutral frown of her painted red lips. As the railcar shakes and rattles into motion, the train heading up towards the springs, she thumbs a button on the titanium rod in her right hand. There's a double snap over each other as the rod telescopes out into a bo, and she twists it about with a light whiff, drawing the bo up before her in both hands, falling into a back leaning stance.

"Is it a good fight you seek, or is it one that teaches you good?" Her mascara-laden eyelashes lid mysteriously, as she smiles.

Rochelle's leather motorcycle boots send her careening across the shaking rail car, before she drops forward into a roll and comes out of it before Mika, bringing her staff down in a vertical swipe down at her in both hands, with a quick snap of metal.

Mika bounces a bit when the train sets into motion before readjusting her footing to stay balanced. "Yeah! Either one's fine! Good fights are good teachers!" The wrestler drops into a lower stance, working her arms back and forth to psyche herself up. There may not be a crowd here, but Mika knows there's one that'll be watching at home. The excitement of it has her working up a full head of steam.

And as Rochelle rolls in, and Mika's eyes dart to try and gauge the angle of the attack. When Rochelle rights herself, Mika moves in with a counter-attack. The bo staff slams down into Mika's shoulder with a heavy thump--that one will bruise--but Mika doesn't let that slow her down! Instead she reaches low, trying to wrap her well-muscled arms around the smaller woman's waist and pull her tight. If she does, she lifts Rochelle with enough force to toss her straight into the air like a sack of potatoes.

Mika's next move is to slip under Rochelle and catch her flat on the way down, hoisting her overhead and hurling her down onto the floor of the flatbed!

COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika successfully hits Rochelle with Brimstone.

Rainbow Mika     0/-------/----===|====---\-------\0         Rochelle

Rochelle's jaw clenches at the resiliency of the wrestler against her staff, feeling the resonance in her hands. She is scarcely able to reply with an evasion as she's lifted off her feet and tossed up, her left hand stretching out with fingers spread, before she's grasped and thrown back to the train's flatbed, with a pained scream as she feels her skeleton buck in pain and her nerves jack her muscles and tendons into a hard spasm. Rochelle rolls aside, wheezing and panting, her limbs shuddering as she feels her body wail in anguish.

And then, Rochelle is back into action, swinging her bo staff around as she spins to her feet with a rise, aiming to swipe her staff at Mika's hip, with a hard slam from the side that spins about from Rainbow's right, low as Rochelle climbs back to her feet, swinging around behind Rochelle as she briefly turns her back on her foe and spins the staff around into Rainbow's left side, facing her once more, leaving her guard open.

Mika's shoulder is still throbbing from the bo strike, but she doesn't show it by slowing down. Following the slam she backs off again, moving as the train rattles over a bump. Mika's eyes widen as Rochelle goes back on the offensive, but Mika shifts her weight on and goes on guard instead of trying to counterattack this time.

The first hit slams into Mika's hip, the wrestler shifting her position to block the strike with her glute as best she can. That one will /also/ bruise, but she's hardened body can take a hit pretty well. The follow-up strike catches her off guard, however, and forces Mika to go for an arm-block to stop that one. The bo strikes hard against Mika's forearm, rattling her whole arm and sending pain shooting up it. She winces and hisses through her teeth.

But even as she's blocking, Mika powers forward with a strong right hook, going in low to try and catch Rochelle in the abdomen. "Yeah!!" Mika says through clenched teeth--she's still sore from that last hit. "That's the spirit! I haven't fought a bo fighter yet!"

COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika successfully hits Rochelle with Fierce Punch.

Rainbow Mika     0/-------/-======|=======\-------\1         Rochelle

Rochelle's bo bounces off the raised forearm, the minor alteration of fortune allowing Mika to cram her fist into Rochelle's stomach. She doubles forward with a whining groan, falling backwards and towards the edge of the flatbed. Well aware that she's in danger of falling off and risking potential grievous harm, she forces herself to step forward and suck in air. She spins her bo staff, sweating and breathing heavily from pain, before she spins her staff to her left hand.

Rochelle dashes forward, with a somewhat sloppy gait from the pair of devastating strikes delivered upon her already, and jams her fingers forward at Rainbow Mika's throat, her hand glowing bright red with crimson flames that arc backwards down her arm.

"Hai!" she screams, a ragged sound instead of a purely high pitch, owing in part to the alteration of her breathing cycle by the slam to the flatbed.

COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika endures Rochelle's Finger Dagger Harmony.

Mika manages a "Wh-" before the finger strike hits her in the throat, knocking the wind out of her. She wheezes and grabs at her throat, trying to catch her breath. Even so, she doesn't let herself slow down. Instead, Mika pushes forward to try and shoulder charge into Rochelle, knock her legs out from under her, and then heave her up and over the wrestler's back in a desperate counter-throw.

"That's--" Mika coughs, "kind of a dirty tactic!" She wheezes, still trying to catch her breath.

Rainbow Mika     2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|=------\-------\0         Rochelle

Rochelle's eyes narrow and she smiles gruesomely as Rainbow's breath is sucked away, as if by a spider's bite, and the wrestler is placed on unsure footing. Her legs are indeed knocked out from her by the charge, but she allows it to happen, going limp and fading backwards with her right hand grasping Rainbow's leftshoulder. And then, the counter-throw occurs, and Rochelle is sent flipping over Rainbow, her body moving melodically with a ballerina's unconscious grace as she finally isolates her opponent's rhythm. There's a slam of boots behind Rainbow Mika as Rochelle lands on her feet, before a bang into the flatbed's metal surface indicates her bo staff has just been slammed blunt edge first into it.

Rochelle explodes from behind Mika with a surge of crimson chi alighting her entire form as if a nimbus of a phoenix, her leg slamming into Rainbow's back between the shoulderblades as her staff launches her off the ground and into Rainbow in a point-blank jumpkick. She smashes forward with a primal scream, her whole body shaking with fury as the leather jacket she wears about her upper body flaps about her shoulders.

There's a moment when Rochelle goes up and over where Mika thinks she's reclaimed the advantage. It's a brief moment, because when Rochelle's boots land heavily against the flatbed, Mika knows her throw wasn't what she had hoped. Before she can turn around Rochelle's chi-charged leg slams into her shoulder with such force that the wrestler is launched right off her feet and sent crashing into--and through--a wood crate toward the front of the train car. Metal pipes spill out with a cacophonous noise that drowns up Mika's pained groan from inside the pile of building supplies.

Mika struggles back onto her feet, shaking her head as she tries to clear her vision. A bit blood drips from from a spot or two where she's been cut by the debris, but she doesn't seem to be letting that slow her down--she's more staggered by the force of the impact. As her vision returns, Mika spots a pipe nearby. For a moment, she considers it--but only a moment. As a face, Mika won't resort to such dirty tactics no matter the ring. Rochelle brought her bo staff, but that's expected. For Mika to grab a improvised weapon simply isn't her way. What would the fans at home think?

Instead, Mika slaps her face with both hands, steels her resolve, and starts to circle Rochelle as she looks for an opening. "That was good," Mika says heavily, rubbing her side. "But don't count me out just yet! The real strength of a wrestler is body trained to under anything." Having positioned herself between the springy "safety" cables of the flatbed, Mika breaks into a run toward Rochelle. She starts closing the gap rapidly, but just as she seems to have hit the limit of her speed, Mika suddenly launches forward with a powerful forward leap into a staggering closeline. If she dizzies Rochelle as she intends, Mika doesn't stop running, instead skirting toward the edge of the car and rebounding off the safety tables as though they were a turnbuckle. On her second pass she goes low, aiming to spear Rochelle's legs out from under her and flapjack her onto the flatbed.

Still moving, Mika goes for the other side of the ropes, this time springing against them and pushing them to the limits. Using that moment, she tries to slingshot herself backward through the air, descending toward Rochelle rear-first for a flying butt slam if she's still grounded!

Rainbow Mika     0/-------/--<<<<<|=======\==-----\1         Rochelle

Rochelle lands from her jump, the flare of chi evaporating from boot to head, exhausting itself with a sizzle. She grins, blood dripping from her lips, as she watches Mika climb out of the broken crate and the pipes strewn about, striking a Silat ready position, hiding her weakened stomach with a forward left hand guarding herself, bo in the right, lower diagonal edge forward. As Rainbow Mika circles her, she remains in position, slapping the staff's tip down against the criss-crossed metal of the train car, making hollow clangs, shifting to block Mika's ingress with her feet and hand. And then, as Rainbow Mika launches her assault, Rochelle grunts in pain as she feels the damage from the fight hobble her. She shows fear.

Rochelle spins about as the wrestler flies about the car in all directions, bouncing here and there off the car's cables, and as she runs forward, she's slammed about by a clothesline. She spins, spitting blood, before her legs are speared away, and she hits her back, dazed.

And as Rainbow Mika goes up, Rochelle can only watch in horror, but resigned discpline, as Mika comes down into her, slamming her ass into Rochelle's stomach.

The staff comes up, as Rochelle attempts to strangle Mika with it with her last conscious gasps, her vision dimming and pounding red around the edges of her field of vision.

"You...Bitch..." she snarls.

COMBATSYS: Rochelle can no longer fight.

Rainbow Mika     1/------</<<<<<<<|

Rainbow Mika lands soundly, but she makes no rush to get up. As a wrestler, this is the perfect setup for her to go for a pin. Unfortunately, this isn't a wrestling match--and thus there's no pin count--but luckily for Mika, pinning an opponent soundly isn't without its advantages none the less. Even so, this doesn't mean Rochelle is down for the count. Not yet.

Instead, Mika feels the press of Rochelle's bowstaff against her throat as the downed fighter tries to choke her out. Mika resists, however, grabbing hold of the bo and pulling against it. She wheezes, feeling her throat bruise from the pressure, but she doesn't give up! Intead, Mika shuffles as she struggles against Rochelle, trying to force her to release her grip by applying more pressure--after all, Mika's already seated firmly on top of her opponent. She finally lifts herself up and drops back down, hopefully knocking the wind out of Rochelle's sails enough to get her to turn loose.

Once she does, Mika climbs back to her feet, sore and bruised but not beaten. After getting her strength up, she thrusts her index finger into the air, pointing up.

"Yeah!! The rainbow is my bridge to the top!!!"
