Neo League 126 - #140: Alma vs Kyoko

Description: It's time for a rematch between these two beauties. Last time's draw is not enough! This time, one will emerge victorious! This time, the truer warrior, the one with the greater inner strength, will prevail! This time, only one will stand triumphant! This time-- (Draw Match)

A classroom. Plain and simple. Desks have been moved slightly but there are plenty of them still around the class. More than enough things that can actually get in the way during this fight. However, the enviromnent is basically what makes fight interesting, is it not?

This is quite an unique sight as well, since there aren't really a lot of students around to actually make this battle even more burden some. It's in the evening so there's hardly anyone in the school, aside from the officials who are in the room. Kyoko, herself, has to pass out on the opportunity to go out and party, alas... But this is just for a battle after all.

And so... Since she has barely just finished work, she's eating dinner. Or rather, finishing it up. She brought her bento box and after she got it heated, she slowly but surely eats it. Sitting at the teacher's desk, Kyoko hums softly as she uses her sticks to eat, legs crossed as she glances about. Ah man, what a more depressing place to fight. Her work place. No fan support.

Well now, this is a little different.
Alma Towazu walks through the empty halls, dress shoes tapping on the linoleum floors and hands slipped gently into the pockets of his designer jeans as he glances around the interior hall of this Justice High building quietly. The cameramen clank with their equipment and constantly murmur to one another -- something about their boss cutting a pretty woman too much slack on her fight locations? -- but the tall and handsome youth before them doesn't seem to pay them any mind. They're in a simpler part of the campus, but even so, Alma seems to be studying his surroundings with an odd appreciation. Of course, he's never been to many high school campuses, so...
~ So this is where Kai-san goes to school. ~
Only once Alma brushes through the door that he's been told leads to his new opponent does he startle slightly, long-lashed eyes blinking twice before he smiles mildly and a bit bemusedly. "Oh, Minazuki-san," he murmurs, stepping forward to make room for the bustling cameramen as they intrude on the end of her dinner. "Am I interrupting anything?" the young man continues politely. Though, of course, they are perfectly on schedule.
~ There's really something strange about her aura. ~
For a moment, the warrior-model studies the teacher.
~ ...maybe it's just sex appeal she's radiating? ~

Definately there's just this aura of beauty around of Kyoko, something she radiates... Is it pheromones that enhances her powers and makes weird sort of things happen to the males around her such as nosebleeding, or the fact that it seems to make her look even more lushful than she actually is? Even as she does something as simple as eating dinner, she looks marvellous, lovely, the incarnation of perfection.

One hand on her cheek, her gaze sets off in the distance as if she's in the middle of some reverie. It's such a delight to look at her that there's almost the lovely charming harp noise in the background as one sets their gaze on her, first at her long graceful stocking clad legs, and then going up to her waist and chest, the modest and uplifting outfit she wears making it even more wonderful. Everything around disappears before her beauty, there are just flowers and rays of light, and when her gaze turns over to Alma as he gets her attention, her lips curl into a sexy smile, voluptuous lips curling almost as if begging for a smile, glistening gently as she says in an almost too sensual way, "Ahhh, Alma..."

Of course, that's not what happens. That's what would happen in the mind of those with quite some imagination, if the anime factor was there as well.

What happens for real? Kyoko just glances at Alma and she smiles, slowly forcing herself up to her feet, "Ah... No, definately not, in fact, I was waiting for you..." She admits, striding over toward Alma, her heels clanking gently against the ground, "Hum, so uncommon to see boys dress up so well like this.."

"Ah... uhh..."
Well, it's a good thing the cameras aren't rolling yet, because Alma just had a crazy image overlap there. You think that sort of stuff just happens in anime? Oh no. See, it's really complicated to try and explain just how Alma utilizes his aura sense, because it's not exactly vision-based per se; but there, for a moment, he seemed to see Kyoko at... her ideal? At her utmost power and true potential? And man, it just blew his mind. Truly, the Queen of Fanservice wields power beyond all imagining. The poor youth is temporarily stunned.
The clacking of her heels against the floor brings the slightly flushed would-be bishounen to attention, giving him the sudden and ridiculous urge to salute which, fortunately, he quickly overcomes. "It's nice to see you again, Minazuki-san," he says, sounding like he means it, though there's a bit of unusual youthful earnestness in his tone. His mild smile starts to grow into a grin, eyes beginning to twinkle merrily. "I hope we can resolve our last draw today."
He apparently lets her compliment sail by gracefully, just returning it implicitly with his happiness at seeing her again. Only a pro would be able to notice his ears turning redder.
~ Aww, sheesh. ~

Such is the power of her aura. Unfortunately for Alma, Kyoko actually happens to be quite a professional when it comes to actually embarass and affect boys and girls in different ways. Body language is one of her speciality considering that she's a physician and she definately can see through Alma the way she can see through her -- not through auras but the way is body reacts to her very motion and the way she acts around him.

Considering how they actually have some time and they're in no rush, lack of a crowd, it leaves plenty of time for Kyoko to mess around. Messing around? With younger boys? Now that's definately one of those sins she may be condamned for when the judgement day will come. Even Hideo never sees the end of it -- but for temptress like Kyoko, there's only delight when it embarasses and makes one blush. The way Alma's cheeks turn such a lovely shade of red makes Kyoko's lips curl into a thick cat-like smile.

With a soft chuckle, Kyoko leans over and she hums softly, lifting her hand up to gently graze the boy's chest up over to his neck, "The feeling's reciprocal..." Kyoko says, letting her words trail off a bit. She lifts her hand up to his chin, letting her fingers make him look at her. She grins and then slides them over to his cheek, as if to cup it, "Ah, blushing so much, why is it so?" She asks almost in a whisper, leaning over slightly, "Ah, heheh, that's so cute of you... A shame this is a fight, there are so many other things that I'd -love- to do with you..."

Kyoko hums softly and she straightens herself up, "But... Obligations are obligations, aren't they?"

Oh, now that's just mean. Where her fingers touch his shirt Alma feels his skin tingle warmly, and when they brush his neck that sensation travels all the way up and down his spine. His lips part slightly and he blinks once -- but not because he's stunned. He's thinking. As someone who deals with the mental aspects of his self on a consistent basis, a wielder of Psycho Power, he has begun to acquire an intimate knowledge of, as it were, "psychic defense". Alma's not a guy with a lot of barriers up, so it's not surprising that someone like Kyoko would be able to pierce him so keenly. So how to maintain his fighting spirit in the face of is? Perhaps another man would be fine with blustering or ignoring her, but Alma doesn't think he could manage either of those and stay focused--
--so he just grins, and the redness in his ears fades.
It's not a flirtaceous grin by any means, but it is a winning one. "Miss Minazuki," he says, sounding as calm and mild as ever, "I think your students must respect you very much."
"We're ready over here," one of the cameramen finally calls out from subtle corners in the room -- there aren't many of them needed -- and Alma inclines his head in affirmation before turning back to his lovely opponent and taking a step back. His body remains poised and relaxed. His grin is calm, but his eyes begin to clear, a different sort of brightness taking over -- sparkling rather than twinkling, perhaps.
"Please, Minazuki-san," he says quietly, "do your best..."
And Alma takes a deep, cleansing breath...

Hearing those words, Kyoko chuckles softly and she lowers her gaze, "Of course..." She whispers softly, concurring with Alma's words. Somewhat, this remark seems to be a subtle way to remind Kyoko about her behaviour. At the very least she notices the slight 'pinch' in there, the little pointer. Can't a woman have a bit of fun sometime? Kyoko folds her arms across her chest and she leans back, giving Alma a wide smile, "Very clever, dear, I'll remember that," Kyoko states with a nod of her head.

The woman turns around on her heels and she actually strides away, back to her own corner. It seems that the trash-talk psot-combat is over. Of course, this was hardly trash-talk but all of the discussion is done. Kyoko hums softly and she glances over to Alma, frowning slightly, "I'll give you my best -- however, I have to admit, I seem to have a weak spot against my opponents when I beat them so bad. I hate to see them trying to push themselves beyond their limits. Hopefully, you won't actually be that kind of person... They seem to be giving me a hard time..." The nurse comments.

Once the signal is given for the battle to actually begin, Kyoko gives a slight nod to the officials and she doesn't waste a second before she dashes right off at Alma. The woman lets out a shout and she leaps up in the air, giving a wide arc kick. Kyoko's whole leg seems to be swallowed up in chi energy as it's hurled over Alma's way, right over toward his midsection, leaving a wide arc of chi behind the swing.

The gathering was helpful, but maybe Alma should've kept his eyes open and looked around instead -- because he figures out only too late that this room is a bit too small for any serious rolling around and shifting, especially against such a sweeping attack. So Alma snaps his body back slightly just in time, the chi only singing him as he withdraws. Only, withdrawing puts him up against the wall. This would, under normal circumstances, be a tremendous tactical disadvantage, especially considering his rhythmic fighting style.
But Alma doesn't just back up, he turns and *runs*. Hitting the wall foot first, he's actually able to use his momentum to step up the wall -- and then, incredibly, defying gravity, he continues to run for a couple more steps, feet blurring behind him with the influence of Psycho Power as he does so. Finally pushing off lightly, he flips in midair, and then right leg suddenly igniting, he sweeps down and attacks immediately with a powerful hooking axe kick, eyes blazing almost as strongly as his leg.
It's a bit of a gamble, but he didn't have much choice...

COMBATSYS: Kyoko dodges Alma's Shooting Star.

[    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////////// ]
Alma             0/-------/------=|=------\-------\0            Kyoko

Spinning around, Kyoko catches herself well enough, gracefully turning on herself and resuming her combat stance. Lips curling into a smile, Kyoko tilts her head to one side and she asks, "Running away?" She asks with a soft chuckle. The woman bites her lips and she actually waits for him to turn back and charge right back at her. Thankfully, Kyoko's alertness is almost limitless and she keeps her eyes fixed at Alma, aware of his movement and seeing how his muscles flex and how he moves, she can predict his movement... Just well enough for her to be able to actually stagger back and dodge the incoming kicks.

"Not bad, I know well enough to say if I didn't avoid that, it would have hurt a lot... Not giving me any easy ones, eh? Very well then!" Kyoko shouts as she takes her step back to close on Alma, hurling her fist right for Alma's chest as powerfully as possible to give the model a nast punch to his midsection, "Kyaaa!!"

COMBATSYS: Kyoko successfully hits Alma with Strong Punch.

Alma             0/-------/---====|=------\-------\0            Kyoko

Alma grunts as the breath is knocked out of him and staggers back a step. Even if she doesn't look too strong, Kyoko is definitely very precise, and Alma almost marvels at how quickly the wind just wooshes out of him. Maybe he should've tried a different, faster technique -- it unbalanced him too much to react quickly. But there's nothing to regret in battle--
--as long as he gives his all!
So Alma leaps immediately to action, lunging forward into a fierce doublekick and attempting to strike Kyoko both in her midsection at her head.

Alma             0/-------/---====|===----\-------\0            Kyoko

Not intending on giving Alma a second to actually recover and get back to his feet, Kyoko's about to quickly sidestep the incoming kick and press on her attack and force Alma into a rather uncomfortable position. Unfortunately though, things don't quite happen this way for her.

She attempts to move but his kick seems to come even faster despite her best efforts to do this. Kyoko winces and she grunts slightly, especially as she feels to move out from the double-kick, which knocks her back and forces her to the side slightly. She bites her lips and growls, trying to regain her balance.

Alma wouldn't actually push off of Kyoko's face with his foot. That would be extremely rude. But he *will* push off of Kyoko's face with his *Psycho Power*, and incurring no harm or embarrassment to her, Alma somehow mysterious is able to flip off of his own kick and land gracefully away from Kyoko, immediately shifting his stance and settling himself with another breath, this time not with any walls to his back.
He hasn't quite got his momentum started yet, and he doesn't feel ready to press the attack... so it's time to get himself in gear. With a quiet breath again, his eyes narrow, and sparkling coils of energy slowly begin to manifest off his arms, white-pink fire igniting within his eyes.

COMBATSYS: Alma gathers his will.

Alma             1/-------/=======|===----\-------\0            Kyoko

Staggering some to regain her balance, Kyoko heaves a sigh and she straightens herself up a little, regaining her composture. She lifts one hand up to adjust her glasses and then brushes her hair away with one sweep of her hand, "That is quite remarkable, I've definately used my best on this counter attempt, yet even so, it seems it wasn't enough to get pass your defenses, I have to say, I am quite surprised, you are quite talented." Kyoko says as she sweeps her hands over her skirt and turns around on her heels to face Alma. Her lips curl into a wide grin and she lifts her arms up, getting her guard back into place, "Well then, guess this makes it round two then..."

With a grunt, Kyoko tilts her head to one side and she narrows her eyes. And here she goes! She takes the initiative once again! And since Kyoko's own style is so predictable, she leaps on Alma and goes for a couple of powerful kicks, swinging her right leg up to give Alma a powerful rising kick as she jumps at him, aimed to smash his face up and then just as she does so, her leg goes to complete the kick with another descending on to smash him down to the ground.

Dang, this woman can really hit hard when she needs to. Alma registers her compliment, but he doesn't respond in any way -- he's focusing, and he doesn't think he needs to necessarily, even though he appreciates it. But something's certainly needed in response to that kick. "And you are powerful as well, Minazuki-san," he murmurs, wincing ever so slightly as his arms shift from the guard position that prevented any damage to his face. "Unexpectedly so. It works very much to your advantage--"
Then again, maybe *two* responses are needed to that technique, because here comes a second one! Eyes flashing once again, Alma immerses himself suddenly into the flow of battle and lunges without even thinking, his right hand igniting in a flare of white-pink flame and stabbing out suddenly -- and missing by virtue of being several feet short. For a second. Until the powerful explosion of force that sends a blast of sheer battle aura striking at Kyoko's body and mind point blank!

COMBATSYS: Alma successfully hits Kyoko with Self Expression.

Alma             1/---====/=======|======-\-------\0            Kyoko

Looks like things aren't quite going Kyoko's way so far. She seems so sure to actually suceed all of those defenses, she knows how well she can fight against Alma, in her mind, it's all like a giant computer, she knows that she should have been able to at least deflect a bit of that attack, the probabilities, the ones she made up in her mind from her past experience and what she knows of herself, pointed out that she should have suceed! YEt... It didn't turn out that way.

The point blank assault of psycho energy meets no sort of defense and hits her right on. Kyoko growls as she's forced back a bit. She closes her eyes and pants softly. Looks like she'll have to opt for a different way to deal with this whole fight. Her gaze lifts up to Alma and she bites her lips as she leaps after him. Time to actually start controlling this battle, Kyoko style.

And so, Kyoko simply attempts to get a hold of Alma's arm to force him into a painful armlock.

COMBATSYS: Alma fails to interrupt Quick Throw from Kyoko with Divine Intervention EX.

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////          ]
Alma             1/--=====/=======|======-\-------\0            Kyoko

Uh oh.
Time for Phase Two of the attack! Alma's favorite strategy. First you blast them point blank, then with your Psycho Power already fully engaged, you blast them a second time, even stronger, and then-- but it doesn't work out quite that well. He lashes out his arm again immediately, trying to take advantage of her softened defenses, and she, er, grabs it. The power in his arm fizzles as she forces him into a painful armlock, and Alma grunts, wincing as he slumps to his knees in order to twist out of the way and avoid as much pain as possible.
~ ...uh oh. ~

Considering Kyoko's knowledge and expertise with joint manipulation, that definately doesn't do Alma any good. Her lips curl into a tight smirk and when Alma actually attempts to wriggle away from her grasp, she actually doesn't quite allow him to do such a thing.

While Alma is on his knees, she moves her other arm around Alma's neck and she attempts to opt for a rather painful headlock. Sleeper hold anyone? A series of submission are definately Kyoko's best ways of inflicting damage without overkilling her opponents. She chuckles and she tries to block Alma's leg with her own, pressing her knee into Alma's back and her hold over Alma's neck only serve her to bend Alma backward... For him to get into quite an uncomfortable position, if she suceeds the sucession of her submissions.

Alma             2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|=======\-------\0            Kyoko

Alma is, fortunately, man enough to not cry out from the pain, but still, holy crap. Not to mention her heel is pressing into his calf as she pins his leg down and shoves her knee in his back -- not to mention he /can't breathe anymore/. Lights dancing behind his eyes, stars exploding as he feels himself spiralling into unconsciousness, Alma feels his surging fighting spirit crying out defiantly to be released, his soul soaring even as his body fails him--
And so he does the only think he can.
He closes his eyes and stops struggling.
Body going slack, he allows himself to be pulled into the painful position, but he's flexible enough that he's actually able to be pulled remarkably far without even a sign of pain. But in the meantime, while Kyoko is doing all this, his body begins to be engulfed in an aura of rosy gold, a halo of light beginning to surround *both* of them--
--before suddenly, almost impossibly, Alma's able to twist, and try to crack his forehead against Kyoko's.

COMBATSYS: Alma successfully hits Kyoko with Absolution.

Alma             0/-------/-======|=======\====---\1            Kyoko

It's not, in fact, a headbutt. Frankly, he wouldn't be able to manage a headbutt. It's really just a light tap, pressing their noses against each other as well, their lips only an inch apart. But Alma doesn't seem to notice -- and how can he, for his eyes are consumed by a pure white light. A pure white light that glows once as all his Psycho Power releases itself...
...directly into Kyoko's mind.
Striking at her ego, shattering the mental distinction between self and other, sending confusing and contrictory impulses into her brain and body, the power of Alma's ultimate psychic attack purges all distinctions and judgments from Kyoko's mind for one brief shining moment--
"Surrender," he whispers, as he pulls away from the hold.

Kyoko doesn't attempt to break him in half, thankfully, and as of sort, she simply makes sure she locks him into a rather nicely uncomfortable position, in hope that he may actually give him and tap out of this one. "You shouldn't force yourself into this, perhaps you should give up before your hurt yourself..." Kyoko says, her eyes narrowing as she holds Alma still, yet despite all of this he tries to get closer to her, to approach her and touch her and it takes one last bulge of his head to actually get at her and touches her.

"Come on now, don't do this you'll just hurt yourself..." Kyoko says. Her she goes again, trying to go through her submission and make him submit instead of hurting her. Being a nurse conflicts with her fighting spirit after all. And then she feels him nudging her and touching her for a moment. However the surge of psycho energy is enough to have Kyoko actually lets go of Alma. She lets out a scream and she staggers back, destabilished by his attack. She bites her lips and pants softly, shaking her head a little and staggering as she attempts to recover her balance, more or less and regain her senses.

His joints are searing with pain, but with the sheer force of his effort Alma rolls away and rises quickly, eyes glinting with the light of his spirit now that he's free. Freedom! "Hmph," he exhales, unable to avoid taking a moment or two to flex his feet and roll his shoulders and restore feeling to his body -- but his battle momentum won't stand taking the time to catch his breath. Better to throw himself right into the fight!
And so he does, body blurring, lunging forward at breakneck speed to lash out with a single jab -- that suddenly blurs into a multiple jabs, all striking at different areas of Kyoko's head and torso before the final burst strikes her again at the head.
And with him comes the scent of rain...

Alma             0/-------/=======|=======\======-\1            Kyoko

Considering she's still recovering from that psychic burst, Kyoko is left pretty much off defense when it comes to Alma's series of punches. Her eyes widen a bit and she staggers back against the multiple jabs, not able to avoid one of guard them. Panting, Kyoko staggers back and she breathes heavily, closing her eyes as she tries to regain her composture.

Her eyes lift up over to Alma and she frowns, "I'm afraid I don't want to finish this too badly, I know it won't be long before your body cannot take any longer of this..." Kyoko says. She's an expert when it comes to this. So she decides to finish this the least brutal way possible.. And so, Kyoko attempts to get a hold of Alma's arms.

[                      \\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////                  ]
Alma             1/------=/=======|======-\-------\0            Kyoko

Alma's lucky in a way, because Kyoko merely gives him a little series of submission and he might be able to break away from those, it would seem.

Man. She's just too fast for him... grapples are so hard to defend against when you have a style that involves closing in so often. Perhaps it's time to just submit to the hold... I mean, it's kind of hot, in a way...
Alma's eyes snap open as Kyoko begins to twist at his joints once again, and it becomes here that the light in them, though it has faded, has far from died.
~ I won't submit! ~
And with a surge of spirit, Alma tears himself away from the lovely nurse and spins on his heels, fists igniting once again with the burst of soul fire as he desperately lashes out again. "Urryaaahh!" he roars, fully submerged in the flow of battle, and immediately strikes out with a stream of flaming jabs--

COMBATSYS: Kyoko blocks Alma's Destined Duel.

Persistant, isn't he? Kyoko growls and she staggers back as she has to shift on defense. She expected him to finally give him and yet, he presses on the attack, forcing Kyoko to stagger back away from his flaming fists, blocking his jabs. Damn it, she's trying to be nice again and it's backfiring at her again, she's going to lose this one again if she keeps on like this.

"Alright then! I've warned you!!" Kyoko shouts with a grunt as Alma doesn't seem to want to give up, "I'll fight you with all I have!" She shouts, even if she knows Alma is on the verge of falling down, she'll give him her best, jumping up in the air and countering his assault by kicking at Alma's chest, her kicks powerful enough to send him up in the air and just as she does so, she keeps on kicking, going higher as she kicks, every kick that connects sending Alma higher until he actually hits the ceiling, alas.

But Alma's flash of inspired fight is not done.
His jabs blocked, he does not, in fact, stagger and fall, but rather, as she begins to kick out at him, he lunges *backwards*, and actaully performs a back handspring away from her attacks, landing neatly in a crouch as she sails into the air above him, and before his adrenaline rush runs out, before he has time to really feel his injuries or notice how nice her legs look during those kicks or even that he might be able to see up her skirt right now -- he's leaping straight up into the air.
And with a rush of breath, punching out again, trying to just hook out and smash her right in the side of the head, catching her as quickly as he can in midair.

Looks like luck definately isn't with her during this fight. Kyoko growls not having the time to fall back on her feet, caught off guard by Alma's own punch. She feels her own strength slowly but surely being burnt out, fading away with Alma's attacks. She bites her lips and pants loudly, growling as she opens her eyes and lets out a scream almost of desperation as she lands back on her heels, though she doesn't even take the time to stagger as she lunges on Alma. She shouts and just swings her fist over ALma in an attempt to punch him.

"Ngh," murmurs Alma, as he staggers back, vision totally hazing up after that final blow. Well, kid, you fought real hard, way to be, but it looks like this one is all over. He stumbles back a bit more, eyes closing softly as his handsome face adopts an expression of serene repose, already slipping into blissful and healing unconsciousness--
--and then he stumbles forward, right at Kyoko, and basically falls on her with his last punch.
