Dead Or Alive - DOA R2 - Aeria Corday vs Hayley

[Toggle Names]

Description: A few matches are being hosted on Zack Island this round as part of a cross-promotion for DOATEC's media dealings with the new owner of the illustrious island resort. Quite a pretty penny has been spent on an otherwise lower-seed match, but Zack Island has been host to hundreds of celebrities already since it first opened, and there's no better way to promote the otherwise grim brand of Dead or Alive to the investing public. However, the rough and tumble rumble roses brought out for the match today are no fading flowers, and there's already news of an exceedingly scary match going on elsewhere on the island. The only way for these two girls to match it is with a little blood on the sand!

A fight on Zack Island. Of course, it fits full well, knowing it's a DoA tournament. But at a pool, that could be interesting. 'Why not the beach?' One may ask. Probably because the pool area would give more chance for blood to be drawn. With the beach, everyone only gets sand in every orifice. It's not exciting to see.

So here is Aeria, at the pool. Everyone in a bikini or swimming trunks. Aeria, however, is dressed in her last match outfit. She is wearing a semi-translucent black blouse with white dots on it. Underneath is a black bra,leaning more toward practicality than sexy. She is also wearing a pair of black denim jeans which

So here is Aeria, at the pool. Everyone in a bikini or swimming trunks. Aeria, however, is dressed in her last match outfit. She is wearing a semi-translucent black blouse with white dots on it. Underneath is a black bra,leaning more toward practicality than sexy. She is also wearing a pair of black denim jeans which hints at the curves they hide yet are not tight enough to show everything. To finish that outfit, she is wearing lightweight black boots.

She isn't there to display her body but her fighting skills. If she falls in the water, so be it. She gets there, in her designated area, at least for the time being. She idly wonders if her opponent will be in a bikini. If she has any credibility, probably not. Although she can't judge her just with her outfit. She won her first match, she wants to win her second. Kickass time.

Aeria notices there are small drones. They are there to make sure this match is televised all around the world. They fly around the area, able to take good shots of the place, and have great Camera angles once the match starts.

Aeria then waits for her opponent to come, a grin coming to her face.

Hayley Bretherton is all too familiar with the pool. Quite some time she had a rather disastrous match-up during a very special sort of tournament which she would rather forget, even if it did develop something of a fandom for her. Much like Aeria, Hayley is her for the fight. She is after the prize, and is set to put her skills to the test.

In contrast to Aeria, however, Hayley does seem set show off in more ways than one, however.



"Honestly, Ms. Bretherton, I think it looks great on you!" Sayaka said encouragingly. The young Japanese woman was dressed in a bathing suit, oversized shades sitting atop her brown-black hair. A coat of a towel-like material was wrapped over her bathing suit. Hayley, presently behind the wooden door of a pool-side dressing room, grumbled noncommittedly.

"I'm going to wear the shorts, too." Hayley says. "...I'm more comfortable that way."

"Well, I think you'll look great in those, too, miss!"



Hayley enters the arena with her blue hair back in a ponytail instead of her messy bandana style. She is dressed in a yellow, tight-fitting tank that looks a bit more like a sports bra. The string of her bathing suit bottom pokes over some waterproof shorts which are ... quite snug. The Aussie is know for pushing her own limits. She is also becoming known for being able to push the limits of pants, shorts, and bathing suit bottoms without really trying. Such is the power of the mighty wombat. She reaches back and gives her shorts a quick tug for comfort.

"Hoi," Hayley waves across the pool. Her face is slightly flushed. "Good to meetcha. I'm Hayley. I hope we can have a good match!"

One of the drones zips around behind her with a whirr of its zoom lens. The Aussie can be self-conscious about it later.

Watches as Hayley enters the pool, now made arena. The girl has blue hair, and blue hair is beautiful. She wears it well. The outfit is lighter than hers, but it's not a micro bikini that shows her body. She gets a seal of approval for that fighting attire. Silently so.

Aeria gets into her stance. Her hair is let loose on her shoulders. She doesn't seem to care about it. Neither does she seems to care about the drones whirling about. Her eyes are completely set on Hayley. "I am Aeria. If you want to put on a good match, don't fall after the first hit." She winks at her opponent then awaits her opponent, deciding on not giving the first blow, just in case.

"Right," Hayley says, her accent making it more of an "o-i" sound instead of a straight "i." "I'll be sure it's a good match, yeah?" Hayley gives Aeria a lopsided grin before sliding her feet a bit further apart, her soles rubbing against the textured cement of the poolside.

And suddenly, Hayley launches forward in a demonstration of incredibly leg-strength. In one jump, she goes across the pool onto a floating platform in the center. Her feet touch it briefly, and she launches again to clear the other half in a second jump and close in on Aeria. As soon as her feet touch the poolside again she generates instant-power, whipping down with a strong downward chop, her arm rotated in an arc to try and slam into Aeria's guard.

People she fights are so fun, she can't help but grin at Hayley's answer and accent. After she could have done a smile, but her face goes to neutral.

Once Hayley does her first attack. Respect! She jumps around like she's a kangaroo in a human costume. Once beside Aeria, she seems to transfer those legs' power into her downward chop. At least that's how it looks from her position. She doesn't try to move away. She brings her arms up to take the blow there instead of her head. She definitely feels the blow, and she's happy it was hr arms and not her head in that chop's path. "Not bad at all!" She nods her head then proceeds to do her thing.

Her red eyes already perhaps an oddity, get more intense as she looks at her opponent. If Aeria has her way, Hayley would have trouble breathing for a moment. Kind of fitting near a pool of water. As she has that trouble, Aeria aims a swift palm strike at her Sternum. After all, she couldn't hold back against a Kangaroo.9

Hayley leans into the blow, combining momentum and full-body motion to deliver it. As Aeria takes the hit in stride, the Aussie grits her teeth, not in anger, but in a sort of energetic but toothy smile. "Oi, good guard! --ah!" Those red eyes focus on her, and the bluenette seems to realize maybe she doesn't want to be standing there. She ducks down and backsteps, one foot going off the side and dangling above the water. For a moment, it seems like she might go into the pool as she seems to lose her balance.

But then the Aussie sucks in air. Her aura seems to flicker and her other leg, the one on the side, glistens like steel for a moment. She digs her toes in, as though the poolside were sand instead of concrete, and then uses the power of just one leg to not only pull herself out of the spill but also push off and under, ducking into a crouch as she tries to jet past Aeria into a more advantageous position. The palm strike slides across the slick fabric of her tank as she slides by before landing in a slide on her soles again.

Hayley steps forward, slamming a foot into the cement as she sweeps her arms in a circular arc. Blue-white chi gathers, then the Aussie pushes it into an unstable sphere of power in a double-palm strike.

Aeria nods her head at the compliment of her opponent. After, when Hayley almost falls in the pool, she wishes she would. However, there is respect in her eyes from her double dodge, her hit, and the water. That would have been something.

For a short instant, and that's all it takes, Aeria loses track of Hayley, just enough to be hit hard by the sphere of power in a double-palm. It hits her square in the chest, toward the pool. Will she fall in? No, the strength of the blow makes her go to the other side of the pool, where she hits the ground hard. "Ok, my bad. I hate this shit. Screw you." She lets out the flow of words, a little frustrated by her own flaw, against that powerful move. But rushes over the pool, for her own attack, following the same way Hayley took earlier. It seems for now, neither of them wants to feel the water.

When she is close enough, Aeria does a quick sweep at Hayley's leg. If that works, she then slams the palm of her hand into the her opponent's throat. She's not gentle about it either. "See if you like this."

"Sorry," Hayley says, her stern, determined expression giving way to concern after Aeria lands. It's a brief change, however. A ray of sunshine on a stormy day that's gone again as the woman is back into Hayley's proximity in an instant.

The leg impacts Hayley's, but it feels a bit like kicking a wooden training dummy...or a post. The Australian flinches, but she doesn't give out as she steels herself against the impact. The palm goes for her throat, and for a moment, Hayley remembers earlier days.


Hayley stood across from her sifu, an almost gaunt, silver-haired man in dark, round sunglasses wearing a traditional Chinese martial arts uniform. His hands were folded behind his back while Hayley rocked on her heels in her traditional stance. She frowned.

"Aren't you going t--"

The movement was instantaneous. A flash of lighting from a blue sky. In the spanse of a moment he was neutral, Hayley had been struck in the throat, and he was back to neutral. The Aussie wheezed and nearly crumbled, holding her neck.

"Your defense is still open, child. An opponent needs only an instant to take a vital point. Remember this." Hayley looked at him, her eyes watering. Behind his glasses, he rolled his eyes.

"You are almost there, but hold your hands higher. Take a moment. I'll show you again from the beginning."


Hayley's hand is upon Aeria's almost as soon as she goes for the throat, a tiger-claw grip keeping the strike from smashing her windpipe. The two struggle, strength against strength, before suddenly the bluenette pulls herself up using Aeria's extended arm. Her legs splay to the sides, as they're suddenly more at chest or head height, opened like a crocodile's jaws...

And then they snap together, Hayley trying to grab Aeria and -crush- her between powerful thighs and take the other woman down with her bodyweight.

Hayley           0/-------/--=====|======-\-------\0     Aeria Corday

Today's fight goes very wrong for Aeria, compared to the previous one. She can't hit her opponent really well if at all. And now, trying to concentre to use her mind, went to hell too. She has a plan, but it doesn't come to fruition. She is simply stuck between two powerful thighs, getting crushed between them. While this might have been a hidden fetish on a date/sexual experience, at this point, it was just annoying Aeria more.

At this point, either Aeria was off her game, or Hayley was clearly better. Aeria would pick the first option in a heartbeat, but there was also part of the second option that was true. Hayley in this fight is simply better. She keeps the pressure on and is able to get through Aeria's defense while keeping her own. Hayley deserves the win unless Aeria can pull her act together. Even then, victory would not be certain. Even what is inside of her knew this.

Hayley has learned far too well not to get cocky. Aeria may be on the ropes now, but that could change in an instant. When the Aussie takes the other woman to the ground with her scissors takedown, she squeezes, applying pressure with those thighs, then quickly shifts tactics rather than rub it in.

Hayley's palms smack against the damp poolside and she hefts both them up, doing a brief handstand, her muscles taut as she lifts both her weight and Aeria's off the ground with her arms. Pivoting, she tries to slam the other woman onto the ground, shift, then drop back onto her in a seated slam before rolling off and back to her feet.


"You know, Ms. B---Hayley," Sayaka caught herself, this time. "Your fights seem to get more hits when you do..." Sayaka swallowed, smacking her lips as though her mouth were dry. "When you use certain moves. People share your videos a lot more."
Hayley adjusted her trunks, hopping up as she tugged them into place. "...yeah?" Hayley says. "Like wh--wait, I don't like where this is going."

"I am JUST saying some of those moves are popular. You know, the ones where you--"

"Nope. I'm going to do my thing. Can't people just enjoy the quality of the fight, I mean..."

"You're right!" Sayaka quickly interjected, "Ha ha. Sorry, I shouldn't have brought it up. You're doing to do great!"


Somewhere in the stands, Sayaka takes a long sip from her water bottle before resuming work on a FightTube clip. "Oh, that one is going on the highlight reel."

Hayley           1/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0     Aeria Corday

Aeria looks out of it, with the pressure of those powerful thighs. It certainly looks like it will be the end of her. But Hayley doesn't keep the hold going.

Instead Hayley shows her strength, as she lifts herself and Aeria up, in a handstand. Then she tries to slam Aeria to the ground. But Aeria doesn't let it happen. She's not as out as she looks. She actually lands on her feet and uses her own strength to reverse the hold to slam Hayley to the ground. Then she pulls her head up, and slams her knee into her nose, taking deep breath. "Choking me won't do it, but damn girl. I never seen someone like you." She winks, and that was her awkward way of saying a compliment to the strong Aussie. After that move, she allow herself to take some deep breaths, instead of pressing to another attack. Might not be able to get choked out, but she still needs to breath.

The knee impacts with Hayley's nose, taking her back the other direction and slamming her against the cement alongside the pool. Hayley scrunches her face, reaching up to rub her nose as Aeria quips.

"D-do what?" Hayley says, her face getting a little red, and not from exertion. She rolls backward, trying to widen the gap between them as she stands up fully to her feet.

The Aussie sways, straightening up before lowering into a bended knee Bajiquan stance again.

"Uh, anyway," Hayley says, "...thanks?" She seems uncertain. Even so, she moves forward again, powering toward Aeria. She plants a foot, then swings around with a backfist, making almost a full circle to maximize force. It it connects, Hayley snaps forward, trying to bring her arm down to catch Aeria's arm under hers to pin it long enough for the Aussie to backstep and butt-bump her toward the pool with deceptive force.

Aeria doesn't bother answering Hayley. Yes, Aeria is weird, doesn't know how to interact in a friendly manner in such a way. She's Aeria.

Before Hayley's thanks her and starts her next attack. Aeria rubs her chest a bit. "Hurry up." She says, but to whom. To herself?

Then the attack starts. That fist didn't look fun to meet at all. She ducks under the backfist, feeling the air over her head as it doesn't miss her by much. Then as her arm comes to catch her own, she lowers herself to the ground fully. Then she aims a kick at her left thigh. Before rolling back on her feet a little further away from Hayley. She gives her another wink in the process.

Hayley blinks when told to hurry up, but she keeps rolling with it. Fist cuts through air as Aeria slips beneath it. The follow-up grab finds no purchase, either, leaving Hayley with nothing to charge into. At least, until Aeria follows up with a swift kick toward the Aussie's left thigh.

As the foot connects, there's a sheen, an almost metallic sensation as Hayley's chi becomes unstable and, suddenly, a thin layer of iron seems to gather on the surface of her skin. Undeterred, Hayley surges forward, moving through the kick to close the gap and slam thigh (and hip) into the other woman with a thunderous blow strong enough to possibly floor her or launch her into the pool.

Meanwhile, Sayaka continues clipping as the circling camera drones capture several angles of Hayley smashing through the attack rear-first and clobbering Aeria.

Aeria feels that, but it does not register before she is slammed by Hayley's assets. Aeria is unable to stop the momentum it gives her, and she is sent in the pool underwater.

She does not surface out of the pool for a worrying bit. It certainly stops her from attacking. But while underwater, her healing capabilities go on overdrive. It gives her a boost, and when it's done. She surfaces to get out of the water, but would Hayley attack while she's in the water or after she is out. "Ouch. You're giving me a run for my money." She exclaims

Hayley's feet slap against the wet poolside as water rushes up onto it. The Aussie takes a moment for a breather herself, adjusting her trunks as well, before turning to see if Aeria is back on the offensive. When Aeria takes a moment to get up and out, Hayley opts to give her a breather. The Aussie bounces on her feet with steady, paced breaths to recoup, bouncing from one foot to the other as she slides her hands across the fabric of her trunks, then reaches back to adjust her ponytail and check the tie.

"Trying my best," she says. "Good show though!"

So Hayley decides not to press on. Was it her being nice, or her planning something. Aeria didn't know, but they weren't going to dance around one another all day either.

She gets out of the pool. Of course, she is dripping from head to toes from the water. One would think she might try to dry herself, but instead, she suddenly shortens the distance as soon as possible, and in a move that's not really showy or anything like that, she sends the heel of her palm, toward Hayley's nose, perhaps she will be able to make more damage there. She still had to turn the tides around. Or try to anyway.

The battle is rejoined by a powerful palm-heel strike that impacts against Hayley's forearms as the bluenette pulls up both arms in a strong guard. Even so, the impact makes her slide back several inches before she comes to a stop and pivots into her counterattack. Stepping forward, Hayley puts her weight on her right leg then slams forward with a sharp roundhouse from her left, aiming to smash into Aeria's side.

Hayley           1/--=====/=======|===----\-------\0     Aeria Corday

emit Aeria sees the kick coming, is ready to counter with her mind and strength, but instead since she's still so wet, it seems to mess her up. She received the kick straight in her side, wincing and stopping any attempt at the counter she had in mind.

Further more, something seems to have cracked, and at the moment, she's unable to mount an attack. Hayley is kicking her ass rather heavily. Perhaps a humbling moment for the new girl.

She holds her side a moment. She still has her healing abilities, but it doesn't look like they will be enough.

The kick slams into Aeria's ribs despite her guard, and the Aussie bounces on her feet. Her leg pulls back and she shifts stance, bouncing like a kickboxer. Hayley is fired up now, even if Aeria has hestitated for a moment. She zigs, she zags, she makes her way in ducking and weaving like a boxer to close the gap. Her hands snap to her sides, ready to strike at Aeria when there's that moment of hesitation from Aeria. Hayley is reeling back, ready to strike, and then Aeria seems to hesitate.

Hayley suddenly applies the brakes, slamming her feet to the ground, then leaps back again.

She does not, however, press her luck by asking how Aeria is doing.

COMBATSYS: Hayley takes no action.

Hayley           1/--=====/=======|===----\-------\0     Aeria Corday

Hayley is about to hit Aeria, and she brings one arm up to protect her head. It's not because she isn't able to go for an attack that she can't protect herself. But then Hayley stops herself and even jumps back. The hell, did she look so defenseless Hayley wouldn't attack her. She can't help but speak up. "What the hell? If you're not going to press on and knock me out, I will destroy you! I AM NOT HELPLESS!" She was angry at the moment, even if it wasn't Hayley's plan, even if that anger wouldn't be enough to beat her. She glares at her opponent and breathes deeply. She wants to focus on that anger instead of letting it run wild. It also helps her wounds a bit.

"Sorry!" Hayley quick interjects. "I---" The Aussie starts to say something, then pauses, considers. She slides her feet further apart and bends her knees to resume her lower stance, fist extended. "...bad past experiences on my end. My bad, mate." Hayley rocks, then launches in again, going low.

She extends her arms and splays her fingers, changing her stance just slightly as blue-white chi seems to surge from her hands, from her fingertips. Suddenly, the bluenette sweeps her right hand with a tiger claw that is almost literally so---a flash of blue-white chi cuts through the air with a triple slash. She follows with the left, raking the air again with chi claws.

"Well, don't let it happen again ever!" says Aeria, but not as angry as when she previously spoke. She examines Hayley, it was her big moment. She had to do something good.

The attack happens, sharp chi claws. Aeria thinks she can just catch Hayley's wrist and counter with one of her own moves, but alas, it's not so. Slashes find her clothes and flesh, making her bleed rather nastily at the moment. Aeria feels the pain. The attack is powerful from her Aussie opponent. Hayley has been the better fighter for 99% of this fight, if not 100%.

Aeria stays up, however, and it looks like she's about to strike, like she can power through this attack and the pain following it. She hits her fists together then instead of attacking, she falls to the ground. It's like a switch was simply turned off. It really didn't look like a really like a regular KO. Aeria is out, however, and the winner is clearly Hayley. Aeria's body heals quicker while she is out. Any medic coming to check on her would be too late. Her body already taking care of things.

The two slashes strike true, overcoming Aeria's defense through the added reach and power. Hayley draws back, ready to strike again until the other woman gives out. Pausing, Hayley looks ready to go anyway, to avoid the hesitation she was called out for earlier, but a gear seems to turn. Something goes on in her head, in that moment. She pauses, chi burning away like steam from asphalt as the rain has given way to blistering sun. In its absence, that metallic shimmer from before starts to creep along the surface of Hayley's skin, causing her to wince, but she pulls her hands close to her chest, rubbing the side of her fist.

"G-good match," Hayley says, as the medics close in. She turns them away herself, pointing them on toward Aeria--who doesn't seem to need them much either.

She opens her eyes suddenly and hears Hayley speaking. "One day, we will meet again, and I will kick your ass. I wish I could say you cheated. But there is no way you have. You just beat me fair and square, and I hate you for it. Good job." She stands up. "I swear I was going to continue fighting." She rubs her head. "But something happened. I am keeping that shirt until we meet again. Good job." Then she mutters lightly. "Bitch, but more teasingly than angry at this point, leaving the area so Hayley could celebrate or whatever.

Hayley starts to speak up, to say something, but for a moment there she seems dumbstruck, not entirely sure what to do about it. Should she apologize? That seems belitting. Should she retort? No, that seems overly aggressive.

Instead, Hayley stands there, dumbfounded, until finally she speaks up.

"Then I'll wait for our rematch." She says with a firm nod. For now, though, there are other challenges ahead...

The camera drones circle around again, getting more shots of the victor.
