Golden Angel 2018 - Golden Angel R2 - Kelly vs Hayley

[Toggle Names]

Description: Sorry, Hayley, but merely EVOKING animals wasn't enough to get you in the gift shop. Instead, she is matched up against Kelly Mason on the big stage! Winner: Haley

Golden Angel has certainly been something so far! Whether that's a positive or negative something depends largely on who you ask, but for Hayley it's been enjoyable. Sure she's gotten her butt kicked twice since she got here (once narrowly, once anything but), but she made not one but two new friends. Of course, the event is far from done, too, and the next matchup calls for Hayley to be front and center battling on the main stage.

In truth, Hayley was a little conscious about the whole tournament. Sure, she knew what she signed up for, but she decided to bear fighting in a swimsuit for the sake of the experience. What she did not expect was to be quite so...out there. Golden Angel has given her a fortunately classy one-piece in a rich, dark blue. It is decorated along the chest and belly with white stars, and a big, red-and-white Union Jack is planted right on Hayley's already attention-grabbing backside. Apparently, for whatever reason, the goop has decided to advertise Hayley's nationality quite widely.

And so she waits slightly off stage, going through stretches as she waits for her opponent to arrive. She drops down to a crouch, extending one leg fully to the side and reaching down it to work her shoulders as well.

Across the arena, Hayleys opponent enters the stage!

Kelly Mason, like Hayley, has so far had a rough go with her first match. Also likewise, she is a bit uncomfortable with the whole swimsuit thing. It IS experience, though, and as a beginning to this whole thing shes all for that! Her body is clad in a white one-piece, with a single band at each limb that winds down and around the upper legs and arms. From the chest piece, a pair wind up her neck, over her cheeks, and under her eyes (OOC: like this-

Waving her arms at the crowd as she enters, Kelly takes in her opponent. The scar does draw her gaze for a moment, more out of curiosity than anything else. So cool! On some level, she still can't quite believe she's here! Hopefully this time things will go better..... She gives a smile "You look good in that. Hopefully it won't get damaged in this. Let me know when you're ready!".

As for her own preperations, she closes her eyes, white-blueish energy enveloping her body for a moment, lingering in her eyes before fading entirely as she gradually slides into a relaxed tai-chi-like stance of some kind.

COMBATSYS: Kelly has started a fight here.

Kelly            0/-------/-------|

Hayley's hand slips up in a much more sheepish wave. It's friendly and practiced enough--after all, some of the people here have undoubtedly seen her before. With her bathing suit styled as it is, it's hard not to recognize "Aussie Spangles" from Lightning Spangles's most recent Christmas spectacular. Banned as Jezebel herself was, Hayley was something of a hit, but she seems to still be...adapting to her brush with the spotlight.

Even so, Hayley climbs up onto stage, the platform bouncing springily under her feet as she vaults up onto it. She approaches Kelly in big steps, coming to a stop a short distance away.

"Hi! I'm Hayley. It's nice to meet you," she says as she slips into a low, Kenpo type stance herself. She keeps her fists close and ready to strike.

The energy doesn't go unnoticed however. "Oh no," she mumbles. "Another chi-master? ...I thought this was a rookie tournament..."

COMBATSYS: Hayley has joined the fight here.

Kelly            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0           Hayley

Kelly gives a cutesy smile "Oh, i'm not so sure what i use is chi exactly...... it's complicated....". She doesn't recognize Hayley as a Spangles girl because she doesn't watch TV. No connection made. "Nice to meet you, too!". Then, with a sudden change to a mischevious smirk, she shouts "NOW ROLL FOR INITIATIVE!". Without waiting, perhaps hoping her shout would put Hayley off guard a moment, Kelly closes the gap quickly. Lunging in, she goes to grab Hayley with a glowing hand as she uses her psionicly-focused power to try to slam the girl onto the ground with an enhanced throw!

COMBATSYS: Hayley blocks Kelly's Power Throw.

Kelly            0/-------/-------|=------\-------\0           Hayley

Hayley returns fire with a smile of her own. "--oh?" Hayley pauses. "Wait, are you trying to say that you're a psychic or something? I thought that was all kind of malar--" But before Hayley can finish, the shout catches her off-guard. Power surges and Kelly grabs hold of her, forcing her to the ground!

That is, until the Aussie intercepts her landing with a well-placed knee. She lands with a heavy thump on the stage, but she in doing so she avoids meeting the platform with her face instead. Already the crowd is gasping and cheering as the two belles begin to battle!

And Hayley springs backward, with a kick, launching herself away from Kelly before dropping into a slide on her soles. Wind whips around her as she focuses her chi, after which the Aussie swings forward with a wide haymaker. Chi wind whips around her fist as it cuts through the air, hitting the peak of the swing with a whoosh that sends an air projectile ripping through the air like a whirling boomerang!

"Well, this should be really exciting!" Hayley says. "Do your best!"

COMBATSYS: Hayley successfully hits Kelly with Emu Shoot.

Kelly            0/-------/-----==|==-----\-------\0           Hayley

As Hayley leaps away, Kelly moves to regrab for her, missing by millimeters. Unfortunately, this puts her off balance, leaving her unable to get her guard up in time to stop the wind-like chi attack from striking full force! She is knocked back a step, but seems none the worse for wear. Despite this, she has a wide grin as she responds "Oh, now it's on! Two can play at THAT game!".

Bringing her hands together, energy visibly coalesces in her palms. With a shout she sends a bluish-white ball of firey energy at Hayley in kind!

COMBATSYS: Hayley blocks Kelly's Channeled Blast.

Kelly            0/-------/-----==|===----\-------\0           Hayley

Hayley bounces on her feet, knocking her fist against her palm in excitement. "Seems like you're pretty tough!" Hayley compliments, shifting her footing slightly. Her bare feet seems to grip the platform pretty well, and she digs in to power toward Kelly once again.

But mid-travel, there's a blue-white energy ball to deal with. Too invested to back down, Hayley throws up both arms in a cross-block. She slides forward, the fireball smashing against her guard and slowing her momentum. Even so, she manages to keep her footing.

And thus when it's gone, she's powering forward again. The dark-haired Aussie bounds toward Kelly, snapping out with a sharp left kick!

"So what's your style? Did you learn how to do that through training?"

COMBATSYS: Kelly blocks Hayley's Light Kick.

Kelly            0/-------/----===|====---\-------\0           Hayley

Kelly's arm comes up, her hand catching the kick and stopping it, the shock running up her arm rather than into her torso "I WAS trained.... like i said, complicated!". She gives a wink, brings her arms up over her head, leans back, and then abruptly pushes her arms straight out in a two-palmed thrust! However, she's too far for the palms to connect. It becomes obvious why seconds later, when a huge burst of white energy explodes from her palms in a short-range explosion of energy!

COMBATSYS: Hayley endures Kelly's Psionic Burst.

Kelly            0/-------/---====|=======\-------\1           Hayley

Hayley's leg connects solidly with Kelly's guard, prompting the Aussie to show teeth. "Huh! Well, I guess that's the case for a lot of people here. Martial arts aren't always so simple as training under one master in a dojo for years, huh?"

Hayley steps back, turning on her heel and hopping to regain her balance. She keeps one leg held aloft for several moments as she seems to appraise Kelly's style. The flashes of power, the tai chi like movements...

Before Hayley can dwell on it further, she's facing down a two-handed palm strike surging with power. Rather than go on the defensive, she powers forward, spinning out of her one-legged stance and surging with power. She keeps building momentum with a second spin, powering in toward Kelly--

Until the two palm blow hits her head-on. It's a bone-rattling, jarring impact that ripples through Hayley's whole body. For a moment, her bones feel like jelly. She wasn't expecting quite /that/ much of a hit...

But the Aussie grits her teeth, digs her toes into the stage, and surges forward. She throws a haymaker despite the earth-shaking blow, aiming to catch Kelly on the chin. She spins with the momentum of her own punch, whipping around to face Kelly again with a rising knee. Not stopping there, Hayley swings both fists down in a hammer-blow, aiming to capitalize on that last hit with a third! Each is chi-infused, her aura whipping around her like a small cyclone.

COMBATSYS: Kelly fails to deflect Wild Devil from Hayley with Repulsion.

Kelly            1/-------/=======|-------\-------\0           Hayley

As Kelly focuses her power into the attack, she pushes hard to keep Hayley away! Her eyes widen as the girl keeps going, forcing her way through the attack! In a moment of panic, Kelly tries to change her mind at the last minute, bringing up her hands to try to intercept the haymaker with glowing hands!

Unfortunately, she is far too slow to pull it off!

Her head rocks back as the haymaker impacts her chin cleanly, rattling her vision. Next comes the knee! Followed once more by the duel-fisted strike! This sends her to her knees, head reeling from the impacts between the physical damage and the chi reinforcing it.

She is, for lack of better word, knocked quite silly!

Hayley staggers for a momentum after the impact, wobbling on her feet in moment when her adrenaline high passes and she's faced with the reality that she took a very nasty blow to get in close enough to deliver her combination attack. For a second it seems as though Hayley might fall right over, but instead her hands slap against her knees. She takes several deep, labored breaths before rising up and wiping her chin with the back of her fist. She suddenly snaps back into a fighting stance, rocking on her feet with her fists raised like a boxer.

"Palm strikes and you do Tai Chi?" Hayley asks. "Sorry if I'm assuming, it just looks kind of familiar." In doing so, however, Hayley gives Kelly just a bit of a breather. She narrows her eyes a little, trying to appraise the other girl while she recovers.

COMBATSYS: Hayley focuses on her next action.

Kelly            1/-------/=======|-------\-------\0           Hayley

A trail of red seeps down from where Kellys lip has split from the impacts. Despite this, she has a bit of a feral grin as well as breathing hard. Those hits took a LOT out of her, almost too much "It is..... a mix of softer martial arts styles aspects. I just..... still have a lot to learn".

With a sudden surge, she once again closes the distance, a strong punch, this one not glowing, aimed right at Hayleys cheek!

COMBATSYS: Hayley blocks Kelly's Aggressive Strike.

Kelly            1/-------/=======|=------\-------\0           Hayley

"Me too, to be honest," Hayley says, her expression drooping just a little. "Whenever I think I've gotten it down, someone else shows me just how much I can still learn. That's part of the challenge though! It's just--"

The imbued fist shoots out toward Hayley's chin, but the Aussie is ready. She smashes the back of her forearm against the Hayley's extended arm, taking the blow with her arm but at least redirecting it away from her face. As she pushes it aside, she turns toward Kelly, putting her back to the other yougn woman.

And as she does, the Aussie reaches back around to grab and grab hold of Kelly's arm before she can withdraw it. If she gets a good grip, she gives it a twist, kicking back to try and knock the other woman's feet out from under her. While she's doing so, Hayley keeps going back herself--and in doing so, threatens to sit down on her opponent to put her in a joint-lock!

COMBATSYS: Hayley successfully hits Kelly with Koala Clutch.

Kelly            1/----===/=======|===----\-------\0           Hayley

It is clear that Kelly is not quite recovered from the hit she took. When Hayley moves in, she instinctively brings up her arms to block. This leaves her wide open to be grabbed. Her arm is abruptly twisted, followed by the sweep taking her down hard! She grits her teeth as Hayley moves back, and pushes herself forwards to match momentum to prevent the joint-lock!

Reaching out, she goes for a grab of her own, aiming to touch her hand to the top of Hayleys head, though its more to place it than to strike.

Once close enough, her eyes blaze with light as she attempts to pump a massive burst of psionic energy directly into Hayleys brain!

It won't do any perminant damage, but aside from the initial surge of pain it'll give her a headache afterwards that she won't soon forget!

COMBATSYS: Hayley blocks Kelly's Cranial Surge.

Kelly            0/-------/-------|=====--\-------\0           Hayley

Hayley drops into the lock and pin, then sweeps around to try and deliver a follow-up punch. It may be a bit brutal, but the Australian seems to be watching to make sure she doesn't roughhouse too much. Even so, that doesn't mean that Kelly is out of the fight by any means.

And, in fact, Hayley finds just how much fight the psychic still has when Kelly's hand connects with her head. There's a surge of psychic power that rips through Hayley's skull, making her feel like her head is going to explode. She pushes the hand away after the damage has been done, trying to put some distance in there before Kelly pumps her full of so much energy she's out cold!

Unfortunately for Kelly, Hayley's idea of 'moving away' also seems to include snapping out with a quick punch to the jaw.

COMBATSYS: Hayley successfully hits Kelly with Medium Punch.

Kelly            0/-------/----===|======-\-------\0           Hayley

In the heat of the moment, Kelly is drained. She put all she had into that last attack, and is suitably exhausted afterwards when coupled with all the hits shes taken.

It comes as no suprise when Hayleys snap punch comes, it connects cleanly and painfully!

Kelly looks like she is about to go down, but at the last moment, with a snarl rather unlike her usual friendlier self, she is back up and rounding on Hayley with a gut-punch, psionic energy surging around her fist! From there she goes for a wrist throw to take Hayley down to the floor, and this is followed up with a psionicly-enhanced kick to the side!

COMBATSYS: Kelly keeps on fighting!

Kelly            0/-------/---====|=======\-------\1           Hayley

Hayley is still reeling from the psychic assault just a moment before. She staggers back, holding her head as the world spins. She's starting to bruise in several places and there's a thin red line dribbling down from her lip to her chin.

The surge of power (and anger?) catches Hayley by surprise. She recoils with a stumble, but manages to catch herself before tumbling backwards onto her butt. She staggers, still, the strain doing a number on her when she's already run ragged. When the gut punch comes, Hayley braces for impact with a double-palm block to try and catch the fist. Fist meets palm with a heavy thump that still manages to knock the wind out of her sails.

The wrist takedown puts Hayley on the stage with a thump and a bounce, where the spectators gasp. The Aussie bows up and catches the kick with a turtling block, trying to avoid getting another heavy blow to her ribs.

But Hayley isn't down and out yet. She reaches up to try and grab Kelly's foot, pulling it sharply to try and take her off-balance and then send her crashing onto the stage heavily.

COMBATSYS: Hayley successfully hits Kelly with Medium Throw.
?!? Weird Hit! ?!?

Kelly            0/-------/--=====|=======\-------\1           Hayley

Hayleys last-ditch grab at Kellys foot succeeds remarkably well, her timing just that special level of perfect, and the dark-skinned girls balance is completely destroyed as she tries to back up. Falling backwards she hits her head hard on the ground with a CRACK! Her eyes flare with bright white light as she gives a sharp cry of pain mixed with a hint of anger (at both herself for failing, as well as her opponent for causing such hurt, even if only in the moment). Her body ripples, and a wave of psionic energy pulses from her body, enveloping anything around her as it goes!

Kelly, meanwhile, loses consciousness for several seconds, clearly ending the battle from her side.

COMBATSYS: Kelly can no longer fight.

Hayley is still on the ground when Kelly goes down. This means that the next few moments are downright harrowing. She has to leap backwards, basically scooting on her bathing-suit clad butt to get scurry away from the surge of psychic energy when it washes out.

Once it's passed, Hayley makes her way back over, checking Kelly carefully.

"Hey," she says, "Kelly, right? Sorry about that--can you hear me?" She crouches down. "You hit really hard...sorry if I went a little too rough there--oh, there's a medic heading over now."

It takes a few seconds, but gradually Kelly comes around again. She clutches her head painfully, giving a nod as she tries to sit up so the medic can look her over. Instead of words, she just holds her hand out to Hayley, offering a fist-bump. Easier than forming words when head hurts!

She does manage a strained smile, though. It was a decent match, at least!

Hayley returns the fist bump triumphantly. "You did well, there! I wanna hear the story of your style sometime though...when you're feeling better, of course!"
