SNF 2005.01 - Xiangfei vs Shermie

Description: Ecks vs. Sever! X vs. S! ...Okay, no, just Xiangfei vs. Shermie. It's a Friday Night Fight. In a televised match at the mall, the keyboarder of New Faces fights the Heavenly Hip-hop Honey before buying herself a well-deserved meal at the Pao-Pao. (Winner: Shermie)

The Village Mall is where all the cool kids hang out! Well, all the cool kids, and a few adults as well, tonight was a big night, particularly for the Pao Pao Cafe! There was one particular employee that would do whatever she could to give the Pao Pao good publicity and that employee was Li Xiangfei, the resturaunts most energetic waitress! There's already a large gathering of people as well gathered near the entrance, and the usual media to record the event as it happens live.
Standing in the middle of the gathering is the main announcer, some guy by the name of uh... Rick, who bellows into the microphone, "Hey! Are you all -ready-?? It's time for the Friday Night FIIIIIGHT!!" the crowd roaring in approval, waving flags, banners, all that good stuff, "And to the left, we've got the hometown hero, undoubtedly the favorite here this evening, Li Xiangfei, the self proclaimed... ... Uh... Heavenly.. Beebop.. What?"
"It's 'Heavenly Hip-Hop Honey!!!" the chinese girl yells, raising a fist into the air, other on her hip, "Tonight is my night to blaze in glory! Hahahahaha!" her bells jangle as she leans back and delivers her hearty laugh.
The announcer stares at the girl for a moment, and then continues, "Right! What she said, and the challenger this evening, the oh so mysterious, the charming, the magnificent Shermie!" This also gets quite a roar of approval and cheers from the crowd. Which seems to annoy the chinese waitress a bit.

Standing there with her back turned to the audience as well as the camera, Shermie might at first seem less than thrilled to be here, especially with that un-flattering remark the announcer tosses out. In the end, once she turns around, that doesn't seem to be the case at all. She's smiling, looking amused, and it doesn't seem like she even *heard* that remark from the guy on the microphone since it appears she's just now getting off the phone now that she's hearing cheers from her section.
"Ah, you're annoyed with me already are you? Well that's fine. Come and let's get this started, Li. And try to have fun with it, mm? You look a little... frustrated, if you know what I mean. I don't want you holding back on me."
The strange woman starts to lean forward and take on a provacative pose, as if she's just trying to taunt the Chinese waitress further without saying anything more. One hand rests on a hip, and the other sits balled up just under her chin as she props it there, looking both bored and pouty. But behind that veil of hair that masks her eyes, she's watching rather closely. Someone someone as bored as her expression implies wouldn't likely do...

Shermie          0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0         Xiangfei

Xiangfei growls lightly, reaching up to adjust the bells in her hair, her eyes locked on her opponent- Yes, she was annoyed, but she was actually annoyed because 'her' crowd was cheering for her opponent equally; what the heck was that about?? Also it'd be good to note that while Xiang was in her normal clothing, she woreone of her 'official' t-shirts over her other shirt, dark red in color with a big old picture of Li Xiangfeis head taking a giant bite out of the word 'WINNER' under her.. And on the back it says in black, 'You Are What you Eat!'.
"Fun, huh?" she then murmurs, seeming to think seriously for a moment, then grins as she gives a thumbs up, "You have a deal! But don't go changing your attitude when I take you down, LET'S DO THIS!!" and she races forward to the other woman, eyebrows furrowed- Who the heck was that lady talking to on the phone, anyway? Once close enough her open hand attempted to slap onto Shermie stomach palm first, and keep it there.. And not more than a second later would a sudden force blast toward the tagged spot to send the challenger flying backward, "KAAAAAH!!"

Shermie          0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0         Xiangfei

Shermie gives a light-hearted giggle as she nods her head at Xiangfei, "That won't be a problem. While I wouldn't go so far as to say you don't have a chance, I will say you don't look like too much trouble." She stands herself back up straight as the girl with the bells in her hair comes dashing at her, and brings a hand up to hold it above her head as she waits for her to come within range. Being a good bit taller, with a longer reach, Shermie brings this hand down at just the right instant to grab onto her opponent's shoulder and use her hold there to flip herself right over her before her hand can come within an inch of her abdomen. Yes, she learned that one from Chris.
"Were you straining there? That's not very good for you, you know. You need to relax." And with that last word, she drops herself hard to the ground behind her, throwing her legs out to try and catch Xiangfei's between them, and then sling her overtop herself to hit the ground hard. Should that part succeed, she goes on to roll reach back and encircle the girl's middle with her arms and take her into a suplex.

Shermie          0/-------/-----==|=====--\-------\0         Xiangfei

Xiangfei was a bit dumbstruck by Shermies athleticism, brown eyes widening in suprise as her palm is left held out while she's flipped over- She had to admit she was impressed, she didn't think someone dressed like that could be so agile! "St.. Straining, who's strain-- Erk!" before she can retort, the waitress finds herself held this time and next thing she knows hits the ground. HARD. She'd been suplexed before, but this one's really knocked her for a loop, rolling a bit as she holds the back of her head, "O... OWWW!!"
She gets up to one knee, (Ok, ok take it easy, it's not over yet!) she thinks to herself and smirks, "Not, bad, but!" she turns around and then backflips toward Shermie, closing in the distance quickly and again when in range attempts to take the other womans wrist- In which she'd then twirl around in some sort of fancy armbar, and then drives herself shoulder first into the womans back, "Hup- KAAAH!"

Shermie          0/-------/----===|=====--\-------\0         Xiangfei

Shermie takes a few steps away after delivering the suplex at the end of her technique, turning her back for the moment as she skips along, though her head is turned so she can look back over her shoulder coyly the entire time. And then, she twirls back around just in time to see the Kung-fu waitress backflipping toward her. From behind her thick bangs, one can almost imagine seeing her brow raise, as the bottom edge of the hair over her eyes does move upward a fraction of an inch.
In spite of how surprised the French girl may be at Xiangfei's own display of flipping skills, she's ready for her all the same when her wrist is grabbed, and she puts something right in the way of that driving shoulder. ...her chest. And before Xiangfei even has time to comment, the New Face member is already throwing herself over into a somersault, using the grip on her wrist to help her make her attack that much more forceful as she pulls herself down onto the other fighter, knees first.

Shermie          0/-------/---====|=======\=------\1         Xiangfei

Xiangfei wasn't sure how she was supposed to respond toward Shermies means oblocking her attack, but her eyebrow twitched again in obvious annoyance, the smaller girl gritting her teeth.. Now if it were Chun-Li, that'd be a completely different matter!! But seriously, Xiang doesn't have time to make an evasion, she's just going to somehow have to make her next move really count; this woman was really fast, and she needed to slow her down quick. With the knees delivered to her, the young woman nearly doubles over, eyes buldging a bit, then quickly narrow as she grins, body shivering a bit from the pain, "An opening!" she yells, holding her arms out like airplane wings and launches herself at her opponent. Suddenly she's back on the ground again, thrusting both palms to her sternum, then finally spins around to finish the combination with another shoulder thrust into the same spot, "Hep- Hup- HAAAAAAAAH!!"

Shermie          1/-------/=======|=------\-------\0         Xiangfei

Xiangfei, once the last hit connects and most likely sends her opponent flying backward from the force, takes a moment to stand up and hook two fingers into her mouth, leans back and then hunches forward, giving Shermie the raspberrie of her LIFE while stretching out her cheeks, "BIida biida biiiiiiiiiii!!!"

After hearing that pleasant crunch beneath her knees, Shermie was... a bit distracted for a moment, yep. Though she snapped out of it upon hearing the Chinese girl shout something about an opening. That's right, her guard is down. Oops. All she has time to say is, "A..?" in a cutely quizzical tone, just before she's plowed into by the Xiangfei airliner, and then caught in the middle of her chest by Xiangfei's outthrust palms, and sent flying into the air by a heavy shoulder charge. "OOF!"
The French woman hits the ground several feet away and starts a skid that lasts for a few more inches, and then after a slight pause, she cartwheels back to her feet, laughing the whole way. The wind was knocked out of her for a moment, certainly, but she can still laugh. "That was good. I guess I was asking for that." She dusts herself off a bit, and then goes right back to cartwheeling to get in close for a grapple, reaching out to try and hook her arms under Xiangfei's and half-nelson her before dropping down to pull the girl with her and drive her into the ground.

Shermie          1/-------/=======|==-----\-------\0         Xiangfei

Xiangfei seems pretty satisfied, that's for sure, she grinning widely and replies, "I have to give you props, you didn't seem to me the type that'd say something like that, I'm in a good mood now!" Ah, but now it's back to business, Xiangs eyes narrowing as she watches her opponeent- She never had fought anyone who flipped around like she did, it was a welcome, if not a little confusing change- Time for a change in strategy, she needs to his hard, and fast, "Oka- B'uh?" Shermie was behind her, and it's finally sunken in that this woman was a grappler, the LAST thing she'd expected from Shermie! She rolls with the attack best she can, throwing her weight to soften the blow somehow and rolls backward, stopping and positioned on one knee- Punching a hand into her open palm, a cloud of dust formed around her, clothing and hair raising upward and bells jingling as she tried to build up some more power for a last-minute change in strategy, "HAAAAAAAAAAH!!!"

COMBATSYS: Xiangfei gathers her will.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////               ]
Shermie          1/-------/=======|======-\-------\0         Xiangfei

Well, Shermie isn't discouraged by the fact Xiangfei was able to brace herself against that attack. It wasn't the kind of grapple she could say she practiced often. She releases her hold and backs up a step as the Chinese fighter starts to call up her fighting spirit, and for a moment, Shermie just stands back and rubs at her chin. But then those bells almost make her want to pick up her phone and check up her voicemail, so she decides try and make them stop that bothersome jingling. She of veiled eyes dashes forward, seeming to slide over the ground on one foot for a brief moment as she leans forward, and then she gives a sharp turn at the last minute, when she's just about to crash into Xiang, and spins around to catch her with a clothesline and drag her along for a few yards, only to try and bring her down onto and through a plastic table that sits in one of the mall's many park-like areas.

Shermie          1/----===/=======|=====--\-------\0         Xiangfei

Xiangfei takes another small breath once Shermie races toward her again, and gulps- It's probably about time she went and took her big chance, concentrating probably deeper than she has in any match she'd been in before- The woman was getting closer, and she was pretty sure she could read this attack! (Yattaaaa!! I'll nail her before she hits me!) she thinks to herself, thrusting her hand forward just a bit too late, as she's already been nailed by the blow the same time her palm slams into Shermies sternum again. Groaning from the attack, her eyes clench shut, but then open wide again, as she cries once more, "KAAAAAAAAAH!!!" a burst of energy shot toward the tagged area and the momentum in her akward position sends her smashing into the table anyway- Or rather bounces off of it and thuds ungracefully to the floor and onto her stomach, momentarily dizzy, ".. I.. I can't believe that worked.. My ancestors must be smiling upon me t.. today..."

Shermie is of course surprised by this turn of events as well, as she's sent tumbling back away from the energetic and noisy waitress after being caught in the sternum once more and buffeted by that burst of bright chi. "D- aah!" she squeals, all until she manages to stop her momentum and draw herself up into a kneeling position. One hand rests on a bared thigh, and the other reaches back to sweep one of her long ponytails back over her shoulder as she regards the fallen and dazed Xiangfei for a moment before making any move again.

COMBATSYS: Shermie focuses on her next action.

Shermie          1/----===/=======|=====--\-------\0         Xiangfei

Xiangfei raises a hand to grab the table and then pulls herself up- Not because she's weakened, mind you, but more because she needs to make sure she knows which way is up! Spying her opponant, she gives a big grin, and replies, "Take a good look! Y.. You're facing the next 'strongest woman in the world!'" and now that she's given herself a good ego boost, she flips over the table to try and take advantage of Shermies pause- It definatly wasn't going to be good, it'd perhaps be best to try to knock some more wind out of her opponent, right? The waitress claps her hands togeather, the bells on her wrists jingling sharply and she darts forward again, this time in preperation to show off yet another move, the move she believes will one day defeat Chun-Li's fireball!, "Here I go!!" she cries, hopping to twirl in the air, and lands on both feet, delivering a massive ball of energy, easily the size of her body from her hands at Shermie, and naturally follows it up with yet another energetic cry, "YAH!"

Shermie          1/----===/=======|======-\-------\0         Xiangfei

Shermie hmms and stands herself back up to do just that, take a good look at the waitress girl. "Oh, you think so? Because you see, I just fought her not too long ago over in Germany, and I believe I gave her a bit of a run for her money." She smiles, and then gives a little fit of laughing before she shakes her head and leaps back out of the range of Xiang's energy ball, pausing a bit after she sees she's out of danger, long enough to add, "I suppose you do remind me of her just a bit. But if you're *really* going to be the next in line for that title, you should be able to avoid this the way she did!"
With that, the girl brandishes... her cell phone! It's so shiny! And, it's sparking. Crackling with electricity. Looks pretty dangerous. And it's being thrust right's for Xiangfei's side as the French woman just /lunges/ in and tries to shock the happy right out of Xiangfei.

Shermie          1/----===/=======|=======\=------\1         Xiangfei

Xiangfei's hair blows back for the power of her attack, but she only needs to glance to the side to realize that Shermie had completely evaded her Nanpa, ".... oh." she mumbles, it having fizzled away not after long anyway and quickly gets into defensive position to face her opponent once more. The other womans comment makes her eyes widen in suprise, almost in disbelief, how could she have possibly missed that match? Was it when she was still hurt the other day?
She manages to keep her cool though, her heart starting to race- She can flip out over that fact another time, now she had to meet Shermies challange, her eyes narrowing, "Mmnnn.." There was more to the phone than appeared, but what? Either way, she was sure she could dodge it! Or not, "Eyaaaaaaaah!!!" her hair standing on end open connection, and she immedietly drops to the floor again, her entire body completely thrown out of whack in that instant. It would seem at first she wasn't going to get up, but when her hand raises and slaps onto the ground again, forcing herself onto her hands and knees, that shows otherwise! (more)

Xiangfei coughs lightly, opening one eye as she seems to curse to herself, ".... rats.." It was more the disappointment than the blow itself that'd wiped the smirk off her face, and she really wasn't sure what to think as a result. Well, fight now, think later, there's a sudden BANG! a huge cloud of smoke bursting behind the chinese waitress and she suddenly bursts toward Shermie, shoulder first once more at a speed -much- faster than before, throwing her entire body to where she'd been favoring her attacks the whole time, "HUaaaaaaaaaaah!!"

Shermie          1/--=====/=======|=------\-------\0         Xiangfei

Though Shermie may have had her doubts that Xiangfei could get out of the way of the 180,000 thousand volts heading her way, a lot of them, she still gets a look of surprise on her face when she actually sees the girl get zapped, her lips puckering up and sticking out a bit as she seems to try and express her intrigue.
It's quite the lightshow, and sparks are flying off of smaller Chinese girl every which way while arcs of blue electricity course over her skin erratically, and then she just drops, and Shermie moves a little closer just to listen to the sizzling sound. No, really, she's just there to ask Xiangfei if she wants to give it up or not. That had to hurt her pride, and she's pretty sure the Chinese, as well as those here in Southtown, in Japan, are big on that whole concept. Unlike the French. *cough*
"Ara? Is that it for you? You're spent? ...Oh!" The woman takes a few steps back to take her fighting stance once more, which is really more like some kind of pose a model would make on a runway, but hey. When the Kung-fu waitress gathers her wits and gets right back to fighting her hardest, Shermie throws up a forearm and supports it with her other hand, throwing all her weight behind it and holding Xiang back somehow. Shermie skids back a bit, and probably scuffs up her designer boots some kind of bad, but she'll get over it. Maybe. "Ow? Did I get you mad? Hm?"
With a smirk, Shermie throws down her block as soon as they both come to a stop, and she leans in to try and grab the bell-adorned girl about the middle and pick her right up to start running with her, swinging her around in front of her to run backwards halfway, and then come within a foot of that same table from before, and rather giddily shout, "SHERMIE CRUSH!" as she tries to give Xiangfei the mother of all suplexes right through that already weakened table.

Shermie          0/-------/------=|=------\-------\0         Xiangfei

Xiangfei isn't even sure HERSELF how she got up from that, but to say her pride was hurt was probably an understatement. But despite the way she humiliated herself, she had to keep going, there was only one thing she could do at this point: ATTACK! Xiangfei can't even find Shermies eyes so she can't tell -what- the womans expression really is which just frustrates her more.. It didn't take a genius to figure out when you're getting made fun of tough, "I'm mad at -MYSELF-!" she declares when the attacks momentum decreases, cheeks a cherry red, "And for that-" she declares, grabbed once more, but this time had positioned herself to squirm free from Shermie before getting dropped on her head and instead drops to one knee, "I must defeat you no matter what!" left palm reaching out to smack Shermie in the tummy, and she twists suddenly in the opposite way to drill the tagged spot with her elbow. "Hiii-YAH!"

Shermie          0/-------/------=|=------\-------\0         Xiangfei

Shermie is left holding nothing in her clutches, and it almost looks like she's simply hugging herself really tight after Xiangfei has slipped out of her grasp. This soon becomes just her crossing her arms and looking annoyed for just a moment as she whines, "Mou... how anticlimactic." But then she uncrosses them to wave a hand dismissively, "Fine, whatever. We'll just have to end this another- !!"
Even with seemingly no eyes, she totally saw that coming with time enough to spare for a dodge, spinning away and then slashing her hand down through the air dramatically as she says, "This is it. I'm serious. I'm getting hungry for God's sake. Now stay down, serving girl!"
And this time, it's Shermie that tags a hand onto Xiangfei, right on one shoulder, and then twists herself up into a handstand before dropping down to sit atop both shoulders and wrap her legs around the girl's head before spiraling down towards the pavement.

Xiangfei quickly looks over her shoulder when she realizes her elbow's hit nothing but air, eyes wide in shock, "No!" she yelps, turning the other way in time-- To see her opponent get her shoulder. And then is giving a shoulderride? The chinese waitress is completely boggled by this, flailing her arms but just ends up eating pavement yet again, legs and arms sprawling out after the contact. "ugh..." she groans, her body still tingling all over, even her hair's a bit frazzled, the girl shaking her head slowly, "N.. Not yet.." she gasps, hands clapping once more in her downed position, and releases another tremendous blast of chi toward Shermie, (Just... Need to buy some time to rest.. I can get up after this, I know I can!)

Well, Shermie thought that was it right there, but it seems she just can't stop Xiangfei's determination. At least not just by spinning her to the ground and then sitting on her face until she stops moving. Because she *doesn't* stop moving. "Oh come -on-!"
Flipping right up over the still-kicking waitress, Shermie both avoids that seemingly desperate energy burst from the girl's hands, *and* comes crashing right back down on her with a heavy pair of knees.

Shermie          0/-------/---====|

Xiangfei gasps, her eyes widening suddenly, both at Shermies incredible dodging skill and the sudden flow of strength that's returned to her body! The suprised look then becomes a grin, looking up to the other woman, "Would you expect anything less-" she starts, raising upward with her elbow extended, "From the next 'strongest woman in the world'?? Haaaaaaaaa!!!!" what's normally recognized as her Ekisupo is modified this time to shoot up into the air, but unfortunatly it's no match for Shermies heavy drop. The smaller girl goes crashing once more into the ground, a long groan passing her lips from the wind forced out and- She's not exactly sure, but she think something broke there.
Xiangfeis eyebrow twitches, raising her right hand slowly to take hold of Shermies arm, but her grip loosens, she dropping once more, defeated, "... ugh.."

"Fight - All - Over!" shouts Shermie, and the announcer soon follows suit, declaring the gymnastic French girl in designer fashion-wear the winner. And as soon as Shermie gets back up, she beckons the medics that were on-site over with a finger and then points down at Xiangfei in a rather bossy manner, just before pointing that same finger to the sky and turning out to the crowd to smile and showboat for them /just a bit/ before her stomach starts to rebel against her and she has to reach down to hold it as it growls. "Foo... " And on that note, she just turns and starts to stroll right over to the Pao Pao and disappear into it, idly wondering if the fact she just injured some of their help will affect the service she recieves.

COMBATSYS: Shermie has ended the fight here.

Xiangfei will be all right! But needless to say she was certainly more than hurt physically, the waitress bringing her hands to her face, shaking her head slowly in frustration- What was wrong with her fighting style?? Many of her moves had been passed down generation to generation!
Though Shermie really shouldn't have much problem with the service at the Pao-Pao, if anything the manager is probably relieved to have a day of peace and quiet. That girl'll be back. She -always- comes back. Xiangfei accepts the help from the medics, her head lowered as she's taken off for some good ol' fashioned bandageing.
