Golden Angel 2018 - Golden Angel R3 - Haruna vs Hayley

[Toggle Names]

Description: In which Hayley works face and Haruna yells at her, with a shocking and abrupt conclusion.

Sure there were some issues of modesty, even outright indecent exposure, but for Hayley that was worth risking for the chance to fight some of the world's best upcoming fighters. She didn't really want to brawl with people in a skimpy bathing suit made out of some sort of weird goo, but it couldn't be that bad, right? At least, that was what she told herself in the first two rounds.

The third round has come to show that yes, it can, in fact, be that bad. Hayley makes her way to the arena carrying a rifle-style squirtgun and shuffling her feet a little anxiously. At the moment she has a red wrap around her waist that matches her bathing suit--a royal blue number with white stars on it that closely resembles the Australian flag. Those who have seen her before this point know that the the Union Jack is planted firmly on her bottom for emphasis.

Hayley kicks off her flipflops, sliding them to the side before hopping out to the floating platform serving as the arena. Bits of foam-wrapped cover are scattered about, giving some protection to the combatants.

But Hayley keeps looking at the crowd again. "Did there really have to be so many people here today..." she says, offering a weak wave to some spectators.

Haruna Abe has not been super thrilled at how E-Rotique this entire battlescape has been, but then consider her fights thus far:

* Haru, the Man with Abilities in His Pants, against whom she had a complicated struggle involving a great deal of splashing and a shocking climax.
* Pukai, the Lady of Tentacular Grace, against whom she had thought she had it made but then found out that Pukai was full of secrets -- and battle power!

While Haruna has not lost confidence in her exorcists' arts, the prospect of having a squirt gun fight sounds frankly like a relief. Maybe they're taking pity on her? That's no good for her pride, but... well... neither is losing.

Haruna's bathing suit remains the same: a tankini style halter top with a blue-purple gradient and nebular theme, plus a bikini bottom in navy blue with a white pentagram over... well, there's no way to put it politely. The crotch.

Haruna is also carrying a heavy cannon, almost more like a plastic water-cooled machine gun. She wends her way inwards, the weapon - which is entirely usable given its lack of heavy metal components - slung over her shoulder. "Ah, Hayley, hello~" Haruna calls ahead. "Or should I say Good Day?"

She moves for her end of this floating platform, smirking to herself. Those stars, she thinks. Could she be any more transparent? I'll show her the meaning of this 'Southern Cross', if she tries to close in and pull some sort of Keijo maneuver...

Hayley offers another slightly sheepish wave to the crowd. She puts on her best smiling face -- she's used to the camera -- but it's unnatural, even uncomfortable here. She's definitely trying, at least.

"Oh," Hayley waves to her opponent. "That's right, g'day!" She laughs. "So you're Haruna Abe, right? It's nice to meet you." Hayley offers a polite bow, imitating a proper dojo greeting quite well.

"I uh, hope you're ready!" the Aussie adds, sliding her rifle off her back and pumping it several times to get it ready. "Here it comes!"

Hayley takes aim and fires, shooting out a stream of water aimed at Haruna's belly--that's safe, right? Right? One hopes so, because now there's a jet of water heading right for her--!

"It's true, all of it," Haruna says to Hayley modestly. She returns the bow and then turns towards the crowd, giving them all a sunny smile and an unconcerned wave with her free arm. "My," she says, "they're excited about this, aren't they...?"

Does she know.

She doesn't, does she?

Haruna half-turns just in time to see Hayley firing at her abdomen. She wiggles her hips to the side, raising her arms and the cannon to the side and saying with a laugh, "Hey! Come on, at least -" Then she falters, because the water trickles down along the outer side of her leg, taking with it a few streaks of blue. Blue from her bikini bottoms, which are not...

Not badly damaged, but there's erosion there; a tear that wasn't there before.

"Oh," Haruna says, "/shit/," she breathes under her breath, and then she snaps her attention up towards Hayley. There is a fierce, cold look on her face. "Did you know?!" she says even as she grasps the front of her cannon firmly and starts working the handle with a k-squeek-k-squeek-k-squeek of imminent watery doom.

"Hngh!" Haruna concludes - a sputtering squirt from the nozzle of that weapon, aimed, in this case, just straight at center mass on the Australian woman!

COMBATSYS: Hayley instinctively blocks Haruna's Cannon - Defensive Squirts.

"Y-yeah," Hayley says. "They've been really fired up for the whole tournament from what I've seen." She lowers her gun as the water splashes against Haruna, biting her lip nervously. Hopefully, maybe? Perhaps she's inwardly that the guns actually have salt water in them, that they aren't for what she /thinks/ they're for.

The bathing suit starts to run.

"Sorry!" Hayley interjects. "I was hoping it was salt, but I kind of--aiee!" Hayley jerks, her towel coming loose as she does. She spins to try and intercept the spray with her leg, but instead it splashes along her side, peppering her leg and her midsection, showing a small patch of her belly and sending a trail of blue and white down her thigh.

"Oh no," Hayley says with a frown. She snaps her rifle up. "Sorry!" she says again, laying down several shots to try and keep Haruna at a distance. "Did you not know?!" she asks, probably less angrily.

COMBATSYS: Hayley successfully hits Haruna with Rifle - Suppressing Squirts.

"SORRY? Isn't that one of your Australian HOLIDAYS?!" Haruna answers, with a cold lambent gleam in her eyes, even as Haley moves out of her spray's route. Haruna takes her finger off the trigger to start pumpin' it up again, trying to swerve, bobbing, weaving.

"I didn't think it was going to be the kind of water that melts these fucking things!" Haruna shouts back. (SAUCY. They'll have to dub THIS one.) "I didn't THINK that Alma Towazu would let Angel organize something like this, but I suppose after the Keijo--!!!!!" The squirt of water runs coldly down Haruna's front and she looks down in looming horror BUT


She has relatively thick fabric there. It's tearing, it's shedding, but it's not /torn/. Hunching forwards, Haruna raises the weapon and aims it straight back at Hayley - the resulting jet is aimed lower than before. Tit for t- We're starting this analogy over.

Internally Haruna thinks to herself: No. You're getting furious. Someone who's furious has already lost! Watch her, read her energy... if you can deal with a shikigami you can deal with some fat-assed tart from Down Under.

COMBATSYS: Hayley blocks Haruna's Cannon - Hose Down.

"W-what?" Hayley says, genuinely confused by where that was going. "Well, I hoped that people weren't that..." Hayley cuts herself off, not finishing that. It'll probably still get dubbed over at some point.

"Aaah!" Hayley spins around, practically be reflex. The Union Jack printed on her bottom soaks up the spray and--like in Haruna's case--proves thick enough to absorb the impact. There's a lot of fabric there by necessity. Apparently these colors will run, however, unfortunately.

The fabric does start to look a little thin there, especially with how tight the suit already is in the seat...

Hayley spins around with a bounce, firing off one, two, three quick blasts of water at Haruna. "--I really do hope we can meet in better circumstances later!" she interjects. "Like, this is really not how I'd like to meet someone for the first time!"

COMBATSYS: Haruna blocks Hayley's Rifle - Three Squirt Burst.

The spraying of lethal water everywhere -- well, it's not actually lethal. From a certain perspective this is almost refreshing. It would be much more refreshing if they weren't filming before a live studio audience and if Haruna didn't know with a hot burning intensity just what the outcome of this conflict would end up being!

Hayley's spinning and sending off shots. Haruna's answer is simple yet paradoxical; she throws herself to the side, immersing part of her arm into the water and dipping dangerously low. The fresh water pours off but - yes, she thinks. Yes, it's diluting quickly! The salt intensity...

I can't think about ratios right now, Haruna resolves, even as she levers herself upwards. There /is/ a little b it of a streaking there but much less than might have been expected. It's impossible to know exactly how much it can take, and I don't want to take that risk in front of -

("take it offff" "squirt! squirt! squirt!" "squirt my face girls!!")

these people, Haruna's thought concludes.

The cannon is hoist and held between Haruna's thighs for a moment as she pumps it up, calling at Hayley, "Why, exactly!? Are you just being polite? Do you feel guilt for your actions?!" Then it fires - with a splash attack!? The cannon's spitting high pressure water - up in a high arc. Hayley might avoid the initial spurt but get hit by the trailing leg in long streaks.

"Ugh! So relentlessly polite...!! There's no reason to be cruel, but not everything has to be a friendly hug festival or grim exchange of mangrapples on the battlefield, you know!" Haruna says as she hops back up. She sounds... petulant, if anything.

COMBATSYS: Hayley just-defends Haruna's Cannon - Splash Attack!

Hayley seems genuine enough with her apology--obnoxious and saccharine as it may be--but it isn't stopping her from at least attempting to put up a decent fight.

"No! I like to meet new people with new styles! I don't want to first meet someone like--" Hayley pauses, "Well, like this!"

Apparently, however, she is perfectly okay with meeting someone by Keijoing them off a floating platform.

"Sorry!" she obnoxiously apologizes again. "Eeek!" Water shoots toward her, and she swings her gun around, holding it up like a makeshift shield. The water splashes against it fruitlessly soaking the plastic. Hayley shakes it off and pumps it again before firing a rapid fire volley at Haruna this time.

COMBATSYS: Haruna dodges Hayley's Rifle - Rapid Squirts.

"Well," Haruna muses as she sprays her water forwards, "That's fair enough, then. But what motivates you to meet these styles!? Don't just say that you're -"

And now Haruna throws herself to the side, rolling, rolling, rolling -- and actually submerging herself in the (salt) water the platform's floating on again! She hoists herself up with core strength alone, hair splashing upwards in a glittering cascade as she shouts to Hayley, "Then it's time for us to finish this! If you don't quit it, you're going to be too ashamed to show your face in Japan again!"

Why? This remark is piquant and poorly thought out; just the way that Haruna, perhaps, likes it. The cannon spritz-fzzt-PSSSH's as she 'walks' it across hip height, spraying at an upright angle for long, agonizing seconds before she rises up in a low crouch.

Her energy's hard to read at this remove, Haruna thinks: But I may be getting the hang of it... All I have to do is watch where she's aiming!

COMBATSYS: Hayley endures Haruna's Cannon - Sweeping Squirts.

"Oh, well, I grew up around a bunch of different styles, so I like studying them!" Hayley interjects. "I'm also working on my own, so it's kind of like rese--"

Hayley's eyes widen as Haruna makes her proclamation and launches a steady stream of water at the Aussie. The dark-haired young fighter bounces on her feet, her mind running over options on how to best handle it. Unfortunately, the fighter's body often acts on reflex. Even if it's a water jet rather than a fist or a foot, this is still a "fight" with prizes on the line.

And even less fortunately for Hayley, her style is often unorthodox (if somewhat effective). The jet comes and she powers forward, shifting her weight to one hip before spinning around to soften the blow with the most durable part of her body!

There's a steady sprinkle of fresh water that smashes against Hayley's back, causing her to shiver. There's subsequently a steady drip of colored water--blue, red, and white, that dripples down her leg and onto the platform. There is also a sudden breeze.

"Errr..." Hayley mumbles, reaching down to confirm her fears. Her hand plants against the bare skin of her sizeable bottom. A slide across the the side tells her that her once modest swimsuit has recently been forcefully replaced with a thong.

"I--" Hayley says, her face reddening gradually. "IGIVEUP!" she says in rapid fire, taking off to the side after a towel.

And just like that, Haruna wins.

She blinks repeatedly, because it doesn't make much sense to her. What? She points her weapon down, tilting her head as she looks at the paintlike water dripping down the abundant backside of her opponent. The shift makes a weird bubble-like seam in the side of her also-damaged suit shift around, and she says, "Wait - wait - look, I wasn't trying to bully you, alright?! I was anxious--"

There is scattered booing from the crowd.

"Hey!" Haruna says, wheeling on them.

Some rowdy, or fortunate, person hurls a cup of ice directly at her.


The ice drips down Haruna's front in a constellation of disintegrating nebula purple and she looks down with slowly growing outrage. As the fabric splits under pressure, she takes a deep breath -

-- and that's when the sound cuts out on the recording, folks!
