Description: Gong Family Envoy Tsinghua gets his first Spangles experience under the Arc de Triomphe, as the pair fight for the Neo-League

"So how about I supposed to feel about France?"

Lightning Spangles sits in place, with her beautiful blonde hair, her beautiful blue eyes, and the beautiful smile painted on her freckled face. She was happy, as the makeup department continued to busy around her. Her manager was explaining to her about her Neo-League match, what she needed to advertise, her opponent, and what she needed to do. But the question kind of just poured out Lightning Spangles. The stern-faced man peered back into her, as Lightning Spangles smiles back at him, her blush being applied at the same time. When he doesn't respond, she feels like she needed to explain. "Well, I am America! And sometimes America loves Paris and France, and sometimes they don't. Am I going to love France, or am I going to be all American is better than France, parnder?" Lightning Spangles sits in place, as the manager takes in a deep breath, and exhales.

"Just follow the script, Lightning Spangles."

The Arc de Triomphe is done up with banners of two tri-colors, one being the French style of blue, white red, and the other being it's American counterpart of Red, white and blue. Mirrored against each other, the interior underneath the Arc had been sectioned off with fencing, with a crowd circled all around. On each side of the arc, a fenced off walk-way was set up to gate into the ring from each side. With camera crews in place, with a judge overseeing it, the audience bursts into cheers as a hoot breaks out over them.


Striding up on cowgirl boots and rhinestone-spangled blue jeans was Lightning Spangles. Face locked into a grin, she strides up in her half-vest of a red polyester blend, with a blue blouse studded with white metal stars. Wearing a white cowboy hat on her head, her hips shake as she goes down the walkway, waving at the crowd as she erupts with the cowboy spirit. "I'm Lightning Spangles, the All-American Hero!" She clicks her heels once, as she cups her ear.

"Can I get a yee haw!?"

Quickly after his failure against Olivia, the Master had Decided to send Tsinghua on another Neo-League exhibition match. With the expectation of bringing home a victory, or at least a better performance this time around. He would have arrived on the scene well on time, probably sooner then Lightning Spangles. His stomach sinking deeper and deeper as he sees all the people streaming in to watch their fight. And it's a safe observation that they were in all likelyhood here for, and rooting for the Cow-Girl he was about to face. The American flag-banner spanned over the Arc is another clear indication of this fact.

Tsinghua feels Tiny against everything around him.

As Spangles starts her cruise down the walkway, he swallows heavily once, the chinese Boy is wearing his Beige, Long-Sleeved Hanfu. The dress covering his legs. His appearance is as undoubtedly chinese as Lightning Spangles's is American. He grips the mahogany wood of his Waist-Bound walking stick tightly, ready to pull it out and at the ready whenever the announcer calls the start of the match. But not before walking up to the woman as she'd enter the arena, and giving his formal introduction.

"It's a Pleasure to meet, ms. Spangles. I am Tao Tsinghua, and with Courtesy of the Góng Estate, thank you for engaging in this bout with me today." His voice is noticeably Shaky as he bows deeply towards the American.

The returning yee haws are less strong as last time.

Of course, part of it is that she's not doing the French version of the call. Why not? She always was so good at French. Well, Lightning Spangles continues on her way, shifting her attention to the ring right down to her opponent, Tao Tsinghua. Face stretched into a smile, freckles crinkled around her nose, she looks at the young boy with kindness, wisdom, and understanding. Hand on her hip, she puffs out her chest once before going down to one knee, looking across to Tsinghua at an even eye level.

"Well howdy there, Tao Tsinghua!"

The words chirp out brightly with a drawl, as she tips her hat to her opponent. "Well don't that there Gwanng estate have the cutest little fellas around! It's a real pleasure to meet you there! Oh, but where are my manners!" Lightning Spangles stands back up quickly, and then bows herself. And then, promptly, turns back over to the audience. "What I am doing here is a bow! In China, the country which my opponent is from, you don't give handshakes to introduce yourself, but you give a bow to humble yourself before them!" Lightning Spangles sways slightly as she brightly explains the nuances of Tao's culture to the audience.

All as the judge clears his throat, trying to move the fight along to its beginning.

Spangles's somewhat demeaning (although Likely unintentional) attitude is a little grating on Tsinghua, but he does not speak of it as he steps back according to the Judge's wishes. "That is correct, ms. Spangles. How insightful of a comment." As he takes his starting position, he takes one more look around. So many people, so many eyes on them. On him. The boy feels a little sick, he is not used with dealing with so many people in the same place.

Nethertheless, he grabs his cane with his right and holds it in a low position towards the Cow-Girl, a position not dissimilair from a fencer. His free hand crosses over his weapon-arm, an open palm next to his shoulder facing away from him. He gives an affirming nod to the Judge, making clear that he is prepared for the match.

"shui man zé yě"
(Water Flows in only to Flow Out)

He mumbles to himself, seemingly a mantra to calm his nerves.

"Thank you, Tao Tsinghua!"

Lightning Spangles finishes her lecture by praising Tsinghua, praising the boy that praised her. She turns back to the boy, looking at him as he seemed... nervous. Something was gnawing at the back of her head. Something deep within. The cats. The cats. No, the gnawing is buried as the character goes blind to the flashes of empathy. The mask eases for only a split-second, the smile drawing down, before resurging with even more energy than before. Straightening herself up fully, she eases into a Tae Kwon Do stance; a steady open footwork. Everything seemed oddly rigid, oddly mechanical from the bright and bubbly cowgirl. The judge had called the start. And Lightning Spangles nods. "Okay pardner, I'm going to start fighting you. And don't worry!"

"Everything is going to be all right!"

With that, Lightning Spangles leaps into the air. Sweeping her leg high up, she blazes with red, white and blue energy as she hits the apex of her jump. And there, she swings her leg hard at a 45 degree angle towards the chinese boy. With a flash, a trio of red, white, and blue energy orbs (one of each color) is unleashed in a scatter. Falling towards the boy's position, they wouldn't do much other than fade into whatever they hit on impact. Only when Lightning Spangles would land again would they finally explode in a blast of red, white, and blue fireworks respectively, a flare of energy in a carpet bomb style.

All while Lightning Spangles would salute one of the banners briskly.

Tsinghua eyes her as she leaps through the sky, not changing his position. Before he realizes. This is a projectile.

As soon as he sees the first flares of energy coming his way, he takes a meditative stance. Stowing his Cane as he brings both palms together, closing his eyes as a shimmering, spherical barrier of static roots surround him. The orbs get sucked up-Incorperated into the Wood-like Chi, the roots pulsing with energies Red, White, Blue and Green. His left arm stretches out, while his right his being pulled in his waist. As he does so, the Roots condense and form into a sphere in front of his palm, the wooden vines twisting as they struggle to hold all of the energy.

Then, it all freezes, and Tsinghua opens his eyes- before thrusting out his right palm and releasing the effect- Leaving the sphere to rocket towards Lightning Spangles with dangerous velocity, threathening to explode with all of that gathered energy!

"Can I get a-"

Lightning Spangles halts, trying to understand why the explosion didn't happen. There were supposed to be explosions. Did she do it wrong? She couldn't do it wrong. She is Lightning Spangles. Lightning Spangles never makes mistakes. Never ever make mistakes. So she was going to make a big fireworks display because that's the right thing for Lightning Spangles to do. So with a smile on her lips, she turns around to face the singular sphere of her true American energy. She doesn't gasp, but still smiling, she tries to cross her arms to block it. It slams into her, and... nothing. Lightning Spangles lets her guard down a moment. "Wow, pardner! That's a real cool trick!"

And she explodes.

Red, white, and blue fireworks explode all around her, sending Lightning Spangles spinning upside down. Landing hard on the ground, she staggers up slowly, still smoking. Laughing hard, she hoots as she comes up. "YEEEEE HAW! That's some real cool stuff pardner! That's really good. Almost as good as Spangles Choice Ching Ching Dong Speciality Dumplings!" She brings her hands aside, and a bamboo steamer is placed on it. delicately balancing them, she pulls off the lid, and deftly pops a steaming dumpling into her mouth. "Mmmm Mmm! That's CHing Ching Dong's Specialty Dumplings! Now made with real imitation pork and graded cabbage!" She continues to balance the bamboo container as she hurries at Tao Tsinghua, before coming short to give a singular, sweeping kick straight for his midsection.

Tsinghua looks, Flabbergasted at the advertising campaign happening in front of him. This confusion does not impede on his reactions however, as his stick is used to parry Spangle's Leg, putting strain on his upper arm. He wastes no time in his counterattack, as he throws his Cane towards the American with precise Frisbee-Throw.

But then it..... stops?

Indeed, the Stick is suspended in mid-air, as Tsinghua uses the distraction to circle around to Jezebel's Back, getting in to a low, stable position with his left shoulder facing his opponent, He drops his left arm, and uses his right to support his front arm, before he thrusts up his entire upper-body in a swift motion, attempting to /Slam/ his shoulder into her, to push the woman towards the aerial stick right when he releases the kinetic suspension- A twin-sided attack!

How does he do that?

Lightning Spangles had a way she was supposed to know how fighting worked. Tsinghua was breaking those rules. When the kick comes down, the stick is there meeting it. Hitting it solidly, she steps over, falling back into stance. And then he... throws it? Lighting Spangles actually freezes up as she watches the attack playing out. While snacking on more dumplings of course. When the strikes comes to her back, she takes it cleanly, stumbling on the hit. When the shoulder slam comes, she has fully pivoted. She almost seemed serene as the assault continued, the cowgirl catching the shoulder slam to mitigate with astonishing strength. It doesn't do much for the stick that slams into her, but Lightning Spangles has always taken a lot of abuse on her back!

Well no she hasn't.

Why would she ever think she did?

Lightning Spangles stumbles, breathing hard as she accidentally spits out some of the dumplings. Forcing herself to swallow the rest, her eyes brighten as she steadies herself. "You are doing great pardner!" She exclaims cheerfully, as she hurls in a swift roundhouse in response. Pivoting after the first kick, she chains into a second roundhouse kick, and then a third. "Maybe we can have some high quality Spangles Choice Ching Ching Dong Specialty Dumplings afterwards!" The assault finishes with a delay, before she gives a small stomp at Tsing's foot.

"What does Ching Ching Dong mean in your native tongue anyways?"

Tsing puts his hands together, palms facing eachother as he gathers chi- A torrent of whirling Splinters start to form between his hands. Watching Jezebel, he spins- then does a handless cartweel backwards, evading the trio of kicks all the while building up his own attack. At the apex of his cartwheel, he -fires- the flurry of sharp splinters towards the foe in a large spread.

Looking disturbed, he answers the question honestly from a safe distance. "It is entirely meaningless, ms. Spangles. 'Ching' means nothing, and 'Dong' can be interpreted as 'east' or 'to manage. Both can be used as names. I would humbly suggest to change the name to something reasonable." He flourishes his Cane, the loose clothing flowing with his motions. Before ending in a one-legged stance, as he holds his weapon at the ready above his head, pointing towards the woman. His left palm following the same direction.

There was something uncanny about Lightning Spangles.

As she finishes her pitch, the cowgirl finishes with a final stomp. Every kick was neatly evaded with agile flipping from Tsing. And in return? A barrage of splinters. Lightning Spangles wasn't ceasing her momentum at all though. Even more so, she surges, chasing after the boy as she flings her leg into it. Splinters pepper her leg, as she just comes short of a successful pursuit against Tsinghua. Bleeding from the assault, she falls down, the bamboo container falling with her, letting the dumplings scatter around. Breathing hard, she stares at the damage, the blood on her legs, her chest. She draws in a heavy breath. And she reaches down.

And she grabs a dumpling.

Popping it in her mouth, she eats it, swallowing it hard. "Nothing, Nothing, East! They say that Void is the most powerful of the elements! That must mean that the dumplings are the most powerful you know! Especially if it is nothing twice! Emptiness is a serene beauty, shared from our pardners from the east!" She staggers back up into a stand, falling back into her defensive stance. "Okay pardner! You are doing fantastic! Now come back at me harder! You are a strong, powerful fighter, and look how happy everyone is at your style! YEE HAW PEOPLE!"

And the crowd does in fact give Tsinghua his applause, at the cry of Lightning Spangles.

'Lightning Spangles' causes a pit in Tsinghua's Stomach. Her behavior is simply disturbing and frightening to be boy. Even though, He offers a correction. "N-no. Ching is a word without a meaning. It doesn't exist in the chinese language, it has no character. Cheng, Chang, and Chong all have characters associated with them." His speech is somewhat broken, fear at the way he is being put in the spotlight, and fear due to her incoherent rants.

"I will continue my attack now, Ms. Spangles." he says, breaking the interruption as he sprints- and then jumps towards the American, spinning once mid air while he swipes his Walking Stick towards Lightning Spangles in a wide half-circle coming to the left side of her neck

"Sure thing, Pardner!"

Lightning Spangles doesn't seem discouraged in the least. Even as she is explained about the language, she repeats it back, and it sounds wrong. "Cheng, Chang, Chong! Ha ha ha! I guess they are real characters!" The words are hollow, empty, but bright. Always bright, always cheery. Plastic words, with a plastic smile. AS he rushes at her, he makes the jump, spinning. Lightning Spangles tries to bring her guard up, but not at the stick. She couldn't get her head around the stick. When did she even fight someone with a stick?

When did she?

The stick snaps hard into her neck, and she laughs. A pure, innocent laughter, before she steadies out. Her head was crooked, as she locks her joyful gaze upon the smaller boy. Teeth bared, as she began to flash with red, white, and blue energy. Her face wrinkled in youthful happiness. "Thank you for telling me the right way to say those words. Chinese is a real tough language, but you make it sound so easy! Okay pardner! I need you to attack me again! I need you to fight me harder than ever! Your fans are all out there, and they think you are amazing! Come on now!" She braces down, as she surges with waves of energy now. Of red, white, blue... .and ice? Frost begins to fill the ground under her feet, as her smile suddenly cracks. Ice. Frost. Chill? The waves of red white blue begin to sputter and merge.

All while the challenge hangs in the air.

Tsinghua flips back after his strike, trying to block out the grating sound of her voice and concentrate on the fight instead.
To end this as soon as possible.

The boy takes a defensive stance, observing the woman as her chi suddenly takes on a new shape. Cold. He remains speechless, his stick held rightly as he considers his next move. The boy is pale, paler then usual, and is expelling heavy, but controlled breaths.

That alien energy again.

Lightning Spangles didn't know why she had this energy. It wasn't hers. It could be hers. LIghtning Spangles had red, white, and blue energy. Last time, she thought it was the ice cream. But it wasn't. She had dumplings now. She begins to laugh. When Lightning Spangles was afraid, she would laugh. So she would laugh, because she was Lightning Spangles. She wasn't anybody else. Frost pours from her breath, as she crouches down. She was Lightning Spangles.

She just was a little cold, it seemed.

"WHERE EAGLES DARE!" She cries out, as the challenge collapses. Launching through the air, she spirals like a drill, as contrails of freezing purple energy swirls around her, the red, white, and blue mingling together. Surging at Tsinghua, she outright attempts to overrun the boy, overrun the young with a full-body charge. Laughing. Laughing all the way. As she cries out.

Jezebel          1/----<<</<<<<<<<|=======\==-----\1         Tsinghua

Tsinghua watches and watches, her laugh echoing through his skull like nails on a chalkboard. In fact, it is disturbing him so much that is disrupts the focus he otherwise has- reacting to the human tornado heading his way way late, haphazardly attempting to put up a cross-armed gaurd before Jezebel's attack hits cleanly. She storms through the Boy as he is smashed back and into the ground, coughing up a glob of blood that sullies his pristine garb- Coughing and heaving heavily as he lays still for multiple seconds. Wishing that he could keep lying there and letting the Judge call the match.

"For your sake, I hope that you will, Ertong. I trust that you understand the importance of keeping our name to be respected and trusted." The honorable master's voice rings through his ears, as Tsinghua stumbles to his feet, battered. Wordlessly, he goes back into his fighting stance. Steeling his resolve as throws something in front of him- It freezes.

A.... Dumpling?

A frozen dumpling, though not the storebought kind. A Dumpling Frozen in mid-air, Green chi surrounding it as spectral roots grow from the dough, before dissipating in the air. The dough seems to petrify, hardening with a wood-like quality while the Envoy readies his Cane. And then, he starts attacking.... The dumpling. Swinging at it repeatedly with swings of his stick, somewhat less controlled then his usual elegance- Building up kinetic force on the object. With each swing, the Dumpling vibrates faster and faster. And with a final, more controlled swipe, he releases the spell to have the Dumpling bullet straight towards Lightning Spangles with freakish speed!

As the frigid cold fades, Lightning Spangles finds herself standing over the boy. Her face locked in that grin, as she watches over him. She doesn't stomp on him while he is down. She waits. Watching. Head still tilted oddly on her neck. Watching. When he begins to move, so does Lightning Spangles. The cowgirl backs off, to give him space to rise up. "Okay! We're going to do it! I believe in you Tao Tsinghua! I believe in you! YEEEE HAW!" She calls out. She doesn't notice the Dumpling until its too late. It just doesn't register. Lightning Spangles never fought dumplings. So when it launches? She tries to power through it.

There is a horrible ripping sound, as it pierces her vest.

Lightning Spangles feels funny in her chest. She looks down, and touches it. Blood. It broke through. Breathing hurt. But she laughed. IT hurt to laugh, but she laughed. She pulls the dumpling out, and bites it for a last piece of food. "Boy howdy! That's some trick, pardner!" The line keeps repeating again and again, doesn't it? Right off the script. Lightning SPangles stumbles, before leaning forward. She was picking up speed. "You know what this reminds me of?" She begins, smile stretching across to the corners of her face. The wrinkles around her freckles building. The dimples burning. A contrail of red, white, and blue energy follows her as she winds back her booted foot.

And attempts to punt Tsinghua up between the legs.

"Don't listen to her, just Don't listen to her." he repeats to himself, looking and the utterly disturbing 'Lightning Spangles'. And as he sees her charging up for the big boot, he crouches down into a ball and guards his body with his forearms, Bracers made of bark suddenly seeming to grow to serve as an additional shield. He faces the boot head on, rolling back with the force as the bark on his arms crack and shatter- tumbling back onto his feet. He clasps his hands together once again, meditating for a brief second as he channels his chi- Before expelling it into a shockwave of force towards the woman.

"Crazy Zhin's Chain Of Shoppes bring the highest quality Chinese products at the most reasonable prices!" Lightning Spangles prattles on as she unleashes the full force of her punt into Tsing's own guard. Giving the galactic punt, she absolutely splinters the wooden guard, deaf and blind to the strange style. And yet, she is still staggering after Tsinghua as the crowd roars, the audience telegraphing what is coming. Lightning Spangles's eyes go wide, as she stops. Crossing her arms before her, she braces against the shockwave, the blast driving her across the ground. Coming to a halt, she was still grinning, still smiling. "Now no longer under investigation from Interpol!" She chirps brightly as she pivots, sweeping her leg around. Red, white, and blue energy flickers out as an orb is released once more, chasing towards the Chinese boy to absorb in to him or nearby.

And explode into a burst of fireworks .

Twisting around his opponent in an attempt to hit her side with a back-handed swing of the silver head.

"Yeeeeee HAW!"

That was cry as the boy was tearing through the blast. There was no hesitation, no dread. Only the joyful acceptance of the ensuing violence. It gave her goosebumps. She had goosebumps. Chills through her spine. Across her flesh. The strange energy again. She crouches down as Tsing takes to the air. The air around her was becoming deathly chill. But she wouldn't snap. She wouldn't break. She moves forward slightly, ready to fire straight up into the boy with a a frigid kick.

Lightning Spangles immediately slips on the black ice around her feet.

Taking a horrible hit to the head as she flips over, she lands flat on her face, prone and dazed. Moaning slightly, the frigid air around her begins to warm up again. It's not hard for the judge to declare a champion, as Lightning Spangles moans and groans, smile still on her lips as the medical staff scurries. But the word for Tsinghua was clear, in such a close fight.


COMBATSYS: Tsinghua has ended the fight here.

Tsinghua's Stick connects with her head, as she slips and falls into her defeat. At the Judges' announcment, he moves back frantically. After the unsatisfying, Disturbing fight, he sits down on the ground- as he gets surrounded by excited spectators and curious press. Uncomfortable at all the attention, he responds to many congratulary words with many Thank You's. A fight with a Celebrity like Lightning Spangles, garners a fair bit of attention. He tries to quell the questions, but he inevitably has to answer a few of them. And as willed by the Masters, most of the answers have to do with singing the praises of the Mighty Góng Dynasty and It's head, Patriarch Shuren. Sprinkled between would be some personal details for the hungry fans of the Worldwide Fighting scene to feast on. Eventually, he leaves the scene with a handful more fans then before, and more precious recognition for the Ancient Estate.

Just as the Masters wanted.

Lightning Spangles was happy, as she deliriously rolls, as the medical staff works on her.

But her manager was another story. He had watched the fight. She had stuck to the script. And while the NEo-League fight was another loss, the advertising was completed. They had wanted to do more children stuff, but there was a concern going on. And now, the concern was confirmed. A stability issue. Not a mental one, which was rare for a Spangles. But a physical one. He was on the phone, reporting back to central. "Yeah. Yeah. Fights done. It's another incident. Two of them. Cold energy. We don't know if it's related to the other stuff or something. Mental state seems stable though. Well, as stable as usual. I'm gonna sign off on the evaluations." He hangs up, and focuses on Lightning Spangles. He really hoped she wasn't broken already.

It's be real annoying to have to train another Lightning Spangles.
