SNF 2005.08 - Tiffany vs Eagle

Description: An evening match at the park featuring Eagle and Tiffany in a close fight that came down to the wire. Tiffany manages to barely pull off the win so all was well in Pacificville. (Winner: Tiffany)

The main event for this weeks SNF is only an hour away, but right now the park is the focal point as the next to last match is about to get underway. A light smattering of fans are standing about the roped off area set up in the park awaiting for things to get started as cameras finish setting up and get ready to film this fight. The fans start to gather closer to the ropes when when the announcer walks to the center of the ring with microphone in hand then clears is voice. "Ladies and Gentleman welcome to Saturday Night Fights. This evening's match is a singles fight between a rather fantabulous man by the name of Eagle and one of Pacific High's best, Tiffany Lords!"
There are a few cheers for both fighers and the boxer shows up first was a red silk robe wrapped around her. This is her first singles match for SNF so she is rather stoked to show off her moves in front of those gathered. She takes off the robe and some of the male fans hollar about as it drops off leaving Tiffany in blue boxing shorts and a tight sports bra. She readjusts the bandana that keeps her hair in check then cracks her knuckles. This time the gloves are off and she just has her hands wrapped in sports tape. She grins to the fans and waves to them before resting a hand on her hip and cocking it to the side while pointing to Eagle when he arrives. "Hope your ready for a tough fight. I know I am." She says then lets out a slight chuckle while standing back up fully and hopping lightly from foot to foot to start loosening up.

Eagle walks briskly into the park as the appointed time draws near. Both of his sticks are clutched in one hand, resting them on his shoulder, while his free hand is used to wave to the fighting fans gathered around the temporary fighting ring that's been set up.
When Tiffany points at him, Eagle tosses his sticks lightly into the air, then snatches one with each hand before settling into a combat ready stance. "I wouldn't dream of not being ready!" With a few flicks of his wrists to get them started, Eagle begins spinning both of the sticks rapidly in his hands, the weapons becoming circular blurs as they twirl. "Shall we give the folks watching a good show?"

Tiffany's brows arch when she catches sight of Eagle. "Hey, the guy from the club!" It is hard to forget the person that was swinging a giant discoball at you afterall. She then grins and nods in reply to him while she raises her arms in a traditional fighting stance of a boxer. "Sure thing. I can't let myself look bad in front of the fans afterall." she states and waits till the announcer clears out and gives them the okay. Once 'Start!' is shouted out the Pacific girl moves forward as she sizes up her opponent. He has the advantage with reach especially due to the sticks so she will have to be careful it would seem. To test how good he is with them she decides to try a quick feint to the left before bringing a sharp right aimed at Eagle's sternum to test his quickness and to see if she can find an opening.

Eagle's gotten fairly good with his weapons of choice. They're also useful on the defense, as Eagle brings the crossed sticks in the way of Tiffany's incoming fist. It still manages to hit him, but the attack is dulled considerably by having to use most of its force just to push the sticks back.
And now Eagle gives a demonstration of just how long his reach can be. He snaps his arms out to his sides, sticks extended, and with a brief grunt he begins rapidly spinning in a circle, aiming to repeatedly slam the end of his weapons into Tiffany's head.

There is a bit of a frown from Tiffany when she feels bare fist hit against something than her intended target. She still isn't quite sure how skilled the other fighter is, but she is about to find out once he starts to go on his own offensive. His reach makes it hard to back away fast enough so Tiffany is forced to lower her head while raising her arms to cover up as the sticks slam against them repeatedly. "Hey that better not leave bruises." she mutters once he is done. Afterwards she turns about on her side and leans to the side as she goes into a cartwheel that slings her foot upwards in an attempt to slam into Eagle's chin as she attempts to use the cartwheel as a way to put distance between her and the other fighter.

When Tiffany begins to cartwheel toward Eagle, she's not the only thing spinning. He draws his right arm back slightly as she approaches, grinning as he begins to twirl the escrima stick around in his fingers. She's getting closer, and closer, and... there.
As Tiffany lashes out with her foot, Eagle lashes out with his rod, driving it into the boxing girl's stomach, and most likely knocking her rather ungracefully out of her cartwheel.

Tiffany is in a rather awkward position to do anything about the stick when it comes in to smack into her stomach. Balancing on one hand when legs thrown into the air makes it hard to dodge. She lets out a bit of a yelp when she gets nailed and she goes tumbling. Rolling onto her back she frowns and then kips up then flips forward towards Eagle as both of her boots flash with multicolored energy. They are aimed to come down across the bouncer's head heel first while hopefully stunning him so she can land on her feet without any worries of being smacked about prematurely again.

Eagle again tries to intercept the incoming attack by crossing his sticks in front of it, but his timing is a bit off. And so Tiffany's glowing feet slam down onto the bouncer's head, knocking him off balance for a few moments, as he tries to steady his feet and get himself straightened back up.
It doesn't take him too long, but it's long enough for Tiffany to land on her feet. So Eagle will just have to see about knocking her back off them, won't he? He shifts his arms, one hand coming up to roughly the height of Tiffany's head, the other level to her stomach, and both sticks are pointed straight toward the girl. There's a moment to think about what's coming, which might be enough to deal with it, but once Eagle actually lunges forward the attack is lightning fast. He launches a rapid flurry of strikes all across Tiffany's body, attempting to drive through any holes that might exist in her defenses.

Success! The boxer seems rather pleased with herself as she lands and she gives a quick bow to the fans. One might think that patting her own back would allow a good opening, but an eye remains trained on Eagle so when he comes in to attack she tilts her head out of the way of the way of the first strike before jumping back and twirling out of the way of that lunge. Coming out of the spin the girl just lashes out to kick him in the back to attempt to knock him offbalance due to his situation.

And when Tiffany manages to dodge out of the way of Eagle's lunge, she puts herself in a very good position to strike back. He's already off balance, and the blow to the back sends him staggering even further, taking several moments before he manages to steady himself.
Once he does manage to regain his balance and turn around, Eagle offers Tiffany a grin as he taps one of his sticks lightly on his shoulder. "Very nice!" But just because she's doing a good job doesn't mean he's going to hold back. He dashes toward her, arms snapping out to his sides again. As he gets within range the bouncer begins to spin again, but much more rapidly this time. And if he manages to hit Tiffany, she's going to get drawn in...

Success! Once contact is made, Tiffany finds herself getting pulled along as Eagle spins, the heavy wooden sticks slamming into her over and over again as she's whirled around. Finally the spinning comes to a halt, but only because Tiffany finds herself being launched into the air.
While the boxer is airborne Eagle offers a quick bow to the crowd, standing up just in time to drive the end of one of the sticks into Tiffany as she comes falling back down, adding a little extra hurt before he tosses her aside.

Confidence is riding high when Tiffany feels that kick land home rather hard into Eagle and she grins widely while doing a bit of a ropey-dope. The problem is all the showboating eats up precious time to react to Eagle's attack. There is a pained scream from the boxer when she is drawn into the spinning and gets flung skyward. She tries to twist about to reduce the pain when she lands on the ground, but she failed to realize Eagle wasn't done. She exhales sharply when she lands on the stick and lands in a heap after being tossed away.
She mumbles something and she squints at Eagle while slowly getting back up a bit shakily. A trip to the masseuse is going to be in order after this fight it would seem. She staggers forward a few steps towards the bouncer then staggers back one before slinging herself forward towards the other fighter. It isn't really that traditional of a tackle though it would seem. Instead Eagle finds Tiffany's assets coming in at about head level to slam into him face first to knock him down and away from her.

Some men might find this particular attack of Tiffany's to be rather distracting. Luckily for Eagle, that's not a problem. He does have a grin on his face as she comes charging in at him, but it has nothing to do with the nature of the attack, and more with how he plans to deal with it. "You're pretty flashy..." And as he speaks, Eagle lashes out with one of his sticks again, allowing Tiffany's own charge to lend it even more 'oomph' as he drives it into her sternum.
"I like that! Nobody wants to see a fight that's boring to watch, right?"

[OOC] Ralf says, "More like pretty fleshy."

Note to self, jumping at people with weapons is not the greatest idea. Tiffany might have just been too groogy to realize this when she first attacked. It is probably about the time she is almost about to impale herself onto the escrima stick that she realizes her error. She lands and backpeddels a few feet to regain her balance. "T...thanks I think..." she replies while trying to catch her breath. Things aren't looking too good for the home team right now so she needs to think of something fast. She suddenly seems to perk up and she gives a rather right grin. "All right, I'll show you flashy!" she says while pointing at Eagle then rushing in at him, though once she is close in she spins about in an attempt to get behind the bouncer and grab him around the waist.

%Her arms slip around and get a firm grip and then suddenly Eagle finds himself actually being hefted up by the boxer/cheerleader as she leaps into the air. She spins around in midair then flips around to aim Eagle headfirst at the ground as they twirl about towards the ground. She releases at the last moment to where he is the only one to slam into the ground as she pushes off and flips away to land in a crouch. "Have a nice triiiiiip. o/~"

Luckily Eagle didn't hit the ground much harder, or he might be busy trying to dig himself out right now. As it is, it's still certainly unpleasant to be driven into the dirt like that, and it feels like it put more than a couple kinks into his neck. Is Eagle going to let a little thing like that slow him down, though? Of course not!
The bouncer managed to maintain his grip on his weapons through all of that, so as he climbs back to his feet he's already set to continue the fight. He dashes in towaard Tiffany, and then explodes into a flurry of action, striking out again and again. Blows come in from a variety of angles at high speed, hopefully smacking Tiffany around, before Eagle finishes up with another attempt at a rapidly flurry of strikes with the ends of the sticks, jabbing them at Tiffany all across her body, and hoping to knock her clear off her feet.

Tiffany stands back up fully and winks some at Eagle once he gets back to his feet. Even if she is hurting all over right now she seems to still be enjoying the fight, one that she is wanting to win on her own for once. She starts with the fancy footwork again when Eagle starts to rush at her and this time his escrima sticks hit nothing but air as Tiffany leaps up high into the air and flip about again in another attempt to have boots meet head in a way much like she did earlier with those oh so pretty rainbow chi sparks flying off from her feet.

And now Eagle discovers the hard way that it's a little bit trickier to knock somebody out of their attack when they're coming in from the air. It's possible, but it doesn't work out for him in this instance. He lashes out at Tiffany with one of his sticks, but doesn't manage to prevent her feet from slamming into the top of his head.
And this time it doesn't just stagger the bouncer, it knocks him down. Hard. Eagle drops to the ground, the escrima sticks bouncing away from his hands as he hits the dirt, and doesn't appear to be getting back up for the moment.

Tiffany's landing is a bit shakey due to some dizzyness kicking in from all the flipping, spinning and getting hit. That is probably why she is praying 'please don't get up' as she looks down. Well he at least stays down long enough for the announcer to declare him KO'ed and Tiffany lets out a large sigh of relief before almost falling over. She manages a grin while turning about to throw her arms in the air in victory. "Yeah, score another one for Pacific High!" she declares before lowering her arms and deciding to find a place to get a few icepacks for herself and Eagle. They both will be needing that it would seem.

COMBATSYS: Tiffany has ended the fight here.
