Neo League 126 - #138: Kim vs Mature

Description: Kim and Mature, round two. Clearly Tae Kwon Do is superior to Bitchy Secretary-Fu. (Winner: Kim)

Dublin, Ireland. The Powerscourt Waterfall nestled away here in this city is the largest waterfall in all of Ireland, stretching nearly four hundred feet in pristine, natural beauty. It has become something of a tourist attraction, like any natural landmark; people come and go to see what nature has to offer here in Dublin, walking along the Nature Trail. But not today. No, not today. This area is oddly devoid of tourists on this day, and why is that? Because there is a camera crew hustling around the large expanse of area around the trail, men and women setting up for..
The fighters decided upon today have met before. Three times, in fact, though only once was officially recorded for the league. And with the camera crew finished setting up, those fighters should be here /any moment/ now. And where are they? Well --
One of them sort of has a flair for the dramatic, at times.
The mighty yell comes from -- above?! Yes, that's right. Kim Kaphwan, legendary Tae Kwon Do master, is perched on one of the larger rocky formations near the waterfall, settled into a crouch with a wide grin on his face. And as soon as he lets forth that battle cry, he LEAPS into the air, soaring with incredible grace and falling to the ground in a series of flips, before he /slams/ a single foot down into the grassy ground! HUAH!! He is pumped!!!
Of course, this is a rematch against an opponent he doesn't have the highest of respect for. But he won't give up, and he certainly will /not/ back down. Not today, nor ever. So!!
Where's his competition?!

Where is his competition? Taking her sweet time in getting HERE, of course.

Eventually the lethal blonde emerges from behind the camera crews, idly filing at her long, well-manicured nails. Those around her excuse themselves, to which Mature simply scoffs softly to herself. Kim's kiai? Ignored. The woman is far more occupied in blowing neatly on her nails before taking the file to them once more.

Mature is, to say the least, anything but excited about the fight. In fact, the woman hardly ever seems excited about much of anything, so such is no real surprise. Eventually, however, those baby blues sweep up, long fingers mindfully tucking her nail file away in the depths of her low-cut collar.

The man is given a looking-over, a brief and idle gesture at best on behalf of the much calmer, collected half of the Bernstein secretary duo. "Hmph," she offers idly, shifting her weight and assuming a casual stance at best with arms akimbo on her curvy hips. "You again? They just won't give me a break. Do I honestly have to waste the effort?" Eyes stir to the crew, who look awkwardly amongst themselves before shrugging. Mature?

She just sighs softly. "Very well."

Lifting an arm, the woman seemingly makes the first move! Only...not. Instead she gestures for him to come forward, curling her long, spider-like fingers at him. "Let's get this over with," she coos, smiling faintly. "I'll let you go first, like always."

COMBATSYS: Mature has started a fight here.

There she is. His would-be nemesis of the league! This evil secretary of injustice, with her injusticey manicured nails and stylized hair!! HOW EVIL! It sends a decided shudder through Kim's body just to /think/ of it!!
His legs tense, as he settles into a more combat-ready position. Kim is no stranger to this woman and her deadly way of fighting, not anymore; those manicured nails /are/ most definitely evil. His brown eyes narrow as she approaches, bare feet scraping up against grass and rock as the cold winter air sweeps through the area.
"So we meet again, ma'am!" So they meet again. To fight, again. Despite his win the last time around, that doesn't mean he can't be any less careful. If anything, he has to be moreso. Despite her calm attitude, who /knows/ how vengeful the woman is. Fingers curl into a fist, uncurl. "Please don't hold back!!" She wants him to go first again.
And so he shall.
He rushes forward, to close the distance between them. Mature asked him to go first, and so he does. Because, immediately when he crosses that distance? He lifts up a leg...
And then slams it right into the ground.
"HUUUAAAH!!" The result, is a violent tremor in the ground that rocks underneath Mature's feet, to knock her right down into the grass.

COMBATSYS: Kim has joined the fight here.

Once she's good and ultimately settled, the blonde secretary gives Kim an eye. 'Evil secretary?' She's anything but. Still, his eyeballing humors her, and with a smirk she crooks her head softly to one side. "Do you like what you see?" she again coos at the shudder, lifting a finger to settle gently at the underside of her smooth chin. "Be a good boy and I just might be benevolent to spare you the pain of my nails." But as he knows they're empty promises at best.

"Indeed," she replies, employing a frighteningly calm tone, rather than the disgust she'd formerly addressed him with in the past. "Much to my dismay. Please, keep me entertained?" The tiniest of smiles tug at her rouge-colored lips, but swiftly falls in favor of the line that usually haunts her cool features.

Entertain he does. The leg rises and the blonde attempts to brace against it--only, there's clearly more ooph behind it than she'd anticipated. As a result the ground rumbles and the woman staggers, falling into a pile at the ground. This is...not the start she anticipated. Still, she maintains calm, rising to her feet and pulling stray blades of green grass from her black and white garments. "Hmph."

A flash of blue and her eyes are locked on him. Arms rise and swiftly descend, an arc of pure blue chi sent flying at the man. Does he want to play with cheap tricks? Fine. She'll merely do the same in return.

Well, the fight is on! Any of Mature's little comments are ignored, because Kim is a happily married man, and does not fraternize! Especially with evil! So, he simply lifts his leg, slams it, and knocks her FLAT on her rump! Just like that! Eyes wide with life, Kim leaps back once in order to gain more distance between himself and his enemy... except that seems to be /exactly/ what would be best for Mature. Especially --
Since she's chucking an arc of chi /right/ at him.
Eyes widen in surprise. He's too slow to do anything about it, really, and so the chi SLAMS into him, sending the TKD master flying through the air. Tricks? These aren't tricks, this is a fight! And if Mature is worried about staying entertained... he'll gladly do so!
He flies through the air, landing feet first on one of the nearby trees. And with one, solid push, he's off -- making his way STRAIGHT towards Mature, intent on slamming a single knee into her sternum. "UUUUOOOOHH!!"

COMBATSYS: Mature endures Kim's Light Kick.

Slicing through the air with those well-manicured nails, Mature sends a blast of chi-kissed winds at the self-proclaimed Defender of Justice. Much to the man's surprise it blasts into him, knocking him back through the air. The blonde, however, straightens her back, letting her shoulders and neck idly roll on said shoulders. That felt GOOD.

Persistent, like always, Kim uses a nearby tree as a springboard, propelling himself forward and coming right for her with his knee. Rather than dodge or attempt to hold off his onslaught, Mature braces herself and takes it, lungs expelling air as it comes into contact with her midriff. It's right where she wants him.

"Your screaming," the woman says quietly.

Using the close proximity, Mature curls her fingers slightly and crouches briefly before swiping her hand swiftly through the air, intent on leaving a bloody red slash from hip to opposite shoulder across Kim's chest.

"Is most obnoxious."

COMBATSYS: Kim just-defends Mature's Strong Punch!

Kim simply does not stop the rocking! The Korean hero is intent to keep on going until one of them has fallen -- preferably her, of course -- and even the slight tingle in his eyes isn't going to stop him from charging forward. Except... it seems that Mature was planning on this. And it seems, for all intents and purposes, that she has him in a position that is in her favor.
Not everything happens as people plan, though.
"Your attitude," He says, /loudly/.
Her hand is grabbed before it can even strike him, and in one solid motion, he uses that entire arm to lift HIMSELF up into the air, twisting around in his descent -- right towards Mature.
"Is most obnoxious!! KYAAA!!"
And that is when he unleashes a series of fast, hard-hitting bicycle kicks, all meant to slam Mature straight into the ground.

Clearly her plans don't see fruition; quite the contrary. When the woman moves to rake him cleanly with sharp nails across the chest, the man moves swiftly, clutching her wrist and using it to lift himself high into the air above. Blinking slowly once, Mature flickers her eyes above, long arms quickly following in tow to block his oncoming assault. Still, he moves faster than anticipated, and through her defenses he plows, sending her into the ground with a loud, discomforted 'oof.'

First a hand rises, rubbing idly at her shoulders and neck. Then she's moving slowly but surely to her feet, turning on her sharp heels to about-face and address him eye to eye. "Is that so?" she asks, tilting her head gently to the side. "Well, I apologize. My gift, to you!" Gift?

That would be the black sleeve that whips out like a snake, intent on grabbing him by the ankle and hefting him above before sending him screaming face-first into the ground.

COMBATSYS: Kim blocks Mature's Decide.

Kim              1/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0           Mature

No, it seems Mature's plans aren't seeing fruition. Instead, Kim is intent, /determined/ to show her why his justice will prevail against hers. It is not a matter of skill, it is not a matter of power. It's a matter of heart. Which is why, when she snags him by the ankle and slams him downwards towards the ground? Two hands snap forward, slamming into grass and dirt and rock before his face can, absorbing much of the blow. There's a wince there, but still -- he's fine, and he can continue.
And continue he does, pushing off the ground the moment he slams into it. "I don't much like your 'gifts'!" That's about all she'll get -- before he comes at her, sharply.
His intent is simple. A quick, snap kick to the jaw, before ramming his open-palm right hand straight into her face, to send her stumbling back. "ORYA!!"

Jerking her arm out, the blonde secretary's black silk sleeve winding its way around the man's ankle. Only, when it she goes to slam him against the ground there's a bit more resistance than she'd anticipated in the end. When she turns to look, the man's suddenly there, slamming into her face with a kick and ramming his hand cleanly into her face. Stumble back the woman does, shaking her head fiercely before slowly straightening her posture once again.

"What kind of man hits a lady in the face?" she asks, her features poised in an expression of vague disgust. There's only ONE person that can get away with it, and Kim is not that person.

With that disgust in mind Mature makes her move. Feet stir, heels cutting through grass as she lunges forward. Rather than seal the distance entirely, Mature's foot plants as she extends a leg out sharply, delivering a side kick to his chest, heel first.

Kim              1/-------/=======|=======\-------\0           Mature

Concerned about being hit in the face? This is a fight! She should be more concerned about staying focused! Eyes narrow as Kim's leg tense, but he doesn't say anything. Rather, he just continues to stay focused, those eyes filled with Korean /justice/. So that, when she flings that leg towards him? It moves awfully fast, and eyes snap wide -- but Kim LEAPS into the air, over it, so that her leg sails harmlessly beneath him.
It's precisely when he hits the ground, that he launches forward. Mature doesn't have to worry about being hit in the face however. This time, he has something else in mind. This time, he takes a single step forward -- and slams a hand right into her stomach.
It's not meant to hurt as much as throw her off balance for the flipping kick he performs next, meant to slam into Mature's left shoulder. "HYAAAAAAAA!!"

COMBATSYS: Mature blocks Kim's Strong Punch.

Of course she's worried about her face. What good is a woman who wears bruises like a badge? A worthless one. Thus does she seek retribution by way of slamming him with a kick, only when executed he's not there. Instead he's above, leaping over it and landing a short distance away. Blonde brows furrow slightly, but ultimately the woman just keeps her cool.

Again he moves, but this time the blonde secretary is ready. Lowering her hands, the woman catches his hand, fingers tightly curling around the wrist. "If you wanted to touch me so badly you could have asked," she murmurs, before using the arm as leverage. With a grunt the woman intends on throwing him over her shoulder, to send him rolling swiftly--and painfully--across the grass.

Well -- Kim wasn't quite expecting that. Eyes widen a bit as the woman rather securely grabs ahold of his hand. He doesn't have time to properly get out of the way or defend himself, and thus he goes flying, smashing into the ground with a roll. Grass stains against his white gi, and when he stops, he stops in a crouch... with eyes narrowed distinctly. "Do not think so highly of yourself!!"
He's a married man after all!
He rushes at her, once more, intent on grasping her by shoulder and leg. If successful, he'll lift her easily into the air, and just like she did to him -- he'll toss her, far and away from him, using all his strength behind it.

Arm intercepted and grabbed securely, Mature sends him flying over a shoulder, following through by simply standing upright and dusting her hands. When he speaks, the woman smirks ever so faintly. A woman like Mature, however classy, clearly has a very high opinion of herself. Thus when he argues she simply laughs it off. Married? Who cares? She'll think however of herself as she sees fit.

Rushed, Mature attempts to step off to the side, to avoid his assault. However noble her intention she's ultimately snagged and tossed, sent rolling across the grass. She doesn't rise--not immediately, anyway. She merely lays there for a moment, offering the blue skies above a rather blank sort of look. Huh.

Rising to her feet, the woman sees to adjusting her sleeves, fixing her hair neatly. That out of the way, she flashes a glance at the man, eyes narrowing a scant touch before she tears off, intent on reaching out and grabbing him by the neck. And should this succeed...

Grabbed as she is, Kim flings her /right/ off the bat, making sure to get distance, in order to prepare for whatever she has planned next. Whatever she might think of him and his beliefs, he KNOWS that what she does is wrong. And he will not stop until he sees to it that she is /defeated/. That's why, he's going to end this all, right now. No matter what... he's going to stop it. For good or for bad.
She gets up, she lunges at him, intent on grabbing him by the neck. His eyes snap wide. She moves so /fast/. He just barely gets out of the way, snapping his head back at the last moment, using the momentum to fly /backwards/ in a flip, landing some distance away from her.
"I'm going to give this all I have!!"
It's the only warning she'll get, before Kim LEAPS through the air, flying towards her in a single, powerful jump kick, aimed right for her chest.

She's been exposed to this before. Kim's ultimate technique. The SECOND that foot strikes her chest? He just pummels away at her, in a series of kicks that are far, far too fast to keep up with, lancing at her face, her shoulders, her chest in a myriad of painful assaults. While maybe one might not hurt as much by itself, they all rack up, pounding repeatedly into Mature.
And then, it all finishes, with a single, powerful backflip kick to send her sailing far away from him.

Try as she might, the woman just doesn't seem to have the ability to put her hands on him. So when she attempts to strangle him rather painfully by the throat she's left groping empty air. He's not there? Eyes turn to acknowledge the fact he moved out of the way, blinking once before she's smacked square in the chest. A series of kicks follow, but Mature seems in little condition to do otherwise. Kick after kick she's assaulted before she's released, sent sliding across the wet green grass.

Does she attack? No. She just rises to her feet and dusts her garments off, plucking what remains free of her blouse and skirt before turning on her heel and walking off and breathing heavily. She doesn't even acknowledge the fact he beat her; Mature just paces away, pushing past crews with lips pulled in a thin line across her face.

It's... over? Kim blinks as Mature gets up, half expecting her to attack again. But she doesn't. She just... stops there. Slowly, he straightens, arms crossing over his chest as he watches her walk off, mild confusion on his face. Is that... it? It seems that way, as Mature simply walks off. So, Kim relaxes a little, heaves a sigh... and then turns to the cameras.
With a thumbs up.
His grin *pings* as he leaps away, right into the trees, apparantly using them as a means of transport to get away from the crews and the people with relative ease.
