Neo League 326 - #326: Roberto vs Shermie

Description: [OOC] Roberto keeps muttering... "Auto-guard... A freakin Auto-guard..." (Winner: Shermie)

School's probably one of those normally dull things, right? You go, you sit in classes for a while, and then you go home. And you do this day after day for at least 13 years. Boy, talk about monotony. At least every so often there's things to break it up into excitement. Things like... oh, say, being tapped on the shoulder by a classmate between classes, and passed a note that has something mysterious written on it in a woman's hand.

'League Fight
After School

Mysterious, for sure! Simple, and to the point. If Roberto decides to chek into the message after classes, he'll find a woman in a short pink leather skirt, a pink leather jacket, and a dark purple blouse waiting about the arena. She's in the central area, standing next to a soccer goal set up for the weekend's game. She's got one boot on a ball, and is just rolling it back and forth as she waits, the smirk on her lips only possibly reaching her eyes. The heavy bangs of her hair keep those from being seen quite handily!

Well Shermie's delivery method leaves a lot to be desired. Roberto doesn't mind a league fight but when he gets the note and founds out the location do the problems with the delivery method appear:
1) Since it was in a note form almost all of the student body will know about the fight.
2) It also gave the location and after the last SNF Roberto wasn't too happy about the prospects of fighting in the Dome Arena again.
So Roberto takes the field soccer ball nestled in his arms with a slight frown. He stretches a moment as he looks at the gathered crowd, sans the trash throwing trouble makers from the SNF fight then as he finishes up his stretches he looks at the singer, "I guess we should get started... But did you have to pick this location?" He's still not enthused about it but college money is college money.

And after she went through all that trouble, too! Sheesh! Shermie's smirk loses any 'friendlieness' it may have had as she crosses her arms beneath her chest, setting her shoulders forwards and into an agressive posture. She hip-bumps herself off of the goal, starting to walk towards Roberto as he looks around, even though her eyes can't be seen, it's quite obvious she's very attentively focused on the boy.

"So I invite you to a playful little match, on your turf, with all your friends around, and you /complain/? Hch! Some man you are." Shermie observes this with a bit of rancor, and then finally just shrugs. To quote a man who recently ripped her into pieces. 'Whatever. Let's just get this over with.' She stops about ten feet from the soccer player, and then holds out one hand, the closest thing to a fighting stance the singer/keyboardist has. "When you're ready, boy. Come on, and show me what you're /really/ made of."

COMBATSYS: Shermie takes no action.

"I appreciate the gesture... But waking up face first in cheese fries and being covered in random bits of trash doesn't make you too eager to return to place where it happened." With that Roberto perform a broad gesture the stands. "Oh as for the friends part, I really have just two friends outside of the soccer team. Anyway, I might as well make the best of it. Let's kick things off." He gives Shermie a slight smile that attempts to hide the fact that he's not too happy with the location. Hey... Atleast he's making an effort. Anyway he sends that soccer ball he was previously carrying towards her.

COMBATSYS: Roberto successfully hits Shermie with Long Shot.

Alright - so Cheese Fries and trash is perhaps a bad thing to be dealing with. If they do that to knocked out students, she's quite sure she's not going to end up knocked out here at all, oh no. Instead, she's just going to stay awake, upright, and hope that people not seeing her eyes means that they'll think she's still concious even if she doesn't get laid out on the arena grass.

Speaking of laid out, she'd better watch herself! Roberto's ball smacks her half in the arm, half in the chest, sending her spinning off-balance to the side. It's an awkward position to do anything combat-wise, but it's not going to stop her from recovering quickly, and walking towards him in a slow, predatory manner. "You're good with your ball, kid - but I wonder, just how much experience you have?" As she says that, she attempts to speed up, her fingers going for his hair, trying to get a nice good grip in it.

When Roberto gets his hair pulled, something clicks in his head and he realizes it must be a set up for something even more painful and while getting his hair pulled on hurts but whatever Shermie had planned would hurt more. Fortunately for the soccer star it doesn't come to fruition. Her legs do come up to Roberto's shoulders but they don't stay there for long since he does manage to use his hands to push them off and allowing for Shermie to drop to the ground which doesn't it exactly do much damage but it does put her in a vulnerable position.
After Roberto is done being the envy of most of the male student body, he goes to the ground in a slide with one foot extended outward in what could be considered the classic slide tackle.

COMBATSYS: Shermie dodges Roberto's Sliding Kick.

Shermie          0/-------/-----==|=------\-------\0          Roberto

Aw, he didn't want to go for a ride? How sad! She loves having someone to grip and toss around - but if he's not willing, and rude enough to throw her down to the ground, well - he'll get what's coming to him later! Bounced off the grass, she comes to a stop and settles there for a minute. Well, it's actually considerably less than a minute, because she's already in motion as he tries to slide into her.

"Ah-ah-ah! It's too early to try to get to home plate with me, kid!" she teases as she flips herself into a handstand, adroitly dodging the slide tackle, referencing the wrong sport but certainly for the right reasons. As she comes out of the handstand, she pushes herself completely up and away, landing a few feet from where Roberto is, off to his side. From where she is, she's able to recover, and run up to him - her arms go for his shoulders this time, then roughly try to wrap around his neck!

Shermie          0/-------/----===|=------\-------\0          Roberto

The fact that Roberto's slide tackle has a slow recovery is what usually ends up punishing him however it's what actually saves the star striker this time and as he's getting up from it, he's just under her arms and has just a low enough center of gravity that he's able to go into a dive roll right past her and get to the soccer ball that she was standing on at the time he showed up to fight her.
He flashes the rock star grin as he begins to juggle his soccer ball, bouncing it from thigh to thigh as he makes his approach towards her. His smile slowly turning more and more predatory as the soccer ball bounces and then when he gets close, he bounces up the ball one more time before going into a kick at her legs and letting the soccer hit the ground as he does so.

Shermie          0/-------/-======|==-----\-------\0          Roberto

Easy enough to hit Shermie in the legs - after all, that's three quarters of her body! The other quarter, well - it's not meant to be talked about, at least not in polite company. It probably has something to do with the heart-shaped cutout and such things surrounding it. As the foot impacts, Shermie's leg goes out from under her, and she ends up on her knees painfully, right in front of Roberto. She laughs a bit, though there's a fair amount of 'ouch' in her voice as she tilts her head up to look at him, her bangs thick enough to hide the growing ire. "Are you trying to insinuate something..?", she teases!

As quick as she was down, she recovers, long legs sliding out from under her, frontwards. She attempts to latch and trap Roberto's hips with her thighs, her fingers digging into the turf for leverage as she attempts to fling him to the side, and away. To get a bit of breathing room, because right now.. she needs it!

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

As Roberto gets flung into the air it puts him where he wants to be if not quite under the most ideal circumstances well Roberto continues to make the best of it by twisting himself in mid air until he has positioned himself with his back facing Shermie and then he swings his leg up and over and then drops his foot down onto her back as he crashes painfully to the ground face first, though he's pretty damn sure that Shermie felt it more than he did.
He crawls back to his feet with a pained expression on his face. He then responds to her teasing, "Insinuating? What do you mean?"

Those feet just seem to come out of nowhere, don't they? Sheesh! Shermie manages to eel forwards as she crashes to the ground, skidding painfully along the grass and turf, only slowly getting to her feet. Yes, she's feeling it just as much as Roberto is - quite possibly more so, really. One hand goes to her knee, kneeling on the ground as she turns to look over at the slowly-standing boy.

"Ask me when you're a few years older, kid." she says with another slight smile. It's obvious he's keeping control of this fight, but she's sure going to give him a ride all the same. She starts towards him at a walk again, sliding her fingers along just in front of his chest - almost touching.. and then, well - she tries to move behind him!

Shermie          0/-------/-------|=======\-------\0          Roberto

Roberto is grabbed and swung over backwards into a suplex, he's completely surprised however his goalie reflexes kick in at just the right moment stopping the move with both of his hands and as she releases his body he converts it into a front hand spring before moving to the soccer ball that he brought to the field. "I'm actually not that young..." He's actually is legal now. Just not experienced... And it doesn't help matters when his first 'girlfriend' (Read: Forced into a relationship) is a religious zealot. He clutches his wrists as he recovers from the pain of stopping that really hardcore suplex. After that he bgins juggling the soccer ball as as he watches the woman.

COMBATSYS: Roberto focuses on his next action.

Shermie          0/-------/-------|=======\-------\0          Roberto

Impressive! Shermie's used to that one actually hitting - the fact that it only half-goes through before he springboards away is worth watching. There's nothing like a man in motion, after all. She's down on the ground, watching him respond. The smile turns lazy, and she chuckles as he starts to juggle the soccor ball back and forth. Must be a nervous habit or something.

"But still in school? One of the slow people?" she says, spinning herself back to her feet, and kneeling down next to his feet. She tries to catch the foot that /isn't/ bouncing upwards in the pattern of back-and-forth kicks he makes, trying to flip him off-balance. "C'mon - it's fun down here!"

COMBATSYS: Shermie successfully hits Roberto with Fast Throw.

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

Roberto gets lifted, shifted, higher than the ceiling and Oooh wee.. it's the ultimate feeling of embarrassment as he flips up into the air and falls flat on his face. Of course he doesn't stay on the ground for long since he's already flying at her with a fist extended towards her stomach doing little more than clipping her with it as he attempts to dive past and roll to his feet.

COMBATSYS: Shermie blocks Roberto's Quick Punch.

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

There! That's what she was waiting for - she wanted to see him tossed upwards and land on the ground - sadly, he doesn't stay down /near/ long enough. She's up just before him, and that leaping punch towards her stomach just manages to glance off her blouse, a soft rush of air as she's pushed a little to the side. Not quite able to escape it, but still - good enough for goverment work.

As he rolls on by, she turns on her heel and tries to follow. As she does, she goes for his back, trying to time her grab to just as he comes back up to his feet. If she can, well - she'll be lifting herself up over his shoulders, and suplexing him /again/ through use of her legs and her body weight. It's one of her favorite things to do, after all!

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

Roberto gets up to his feet without a problem and then he only becomes aware of those legs at the last possible moment and this time he goes head first into the ground with a dull thud.
The soccer star slowly gets up to his feet and moves close to his soccer ball preparing to do one of his favorite things because in the act of throwing away, she made the tactical mistake of putting him near his soccer ball and so he sends it flying yet again. Only there's something different. It's glowing brightly as it streaks towards her and then when it hits her, it explodes with a burst of chi and a loud bang.

COMBATSYS: Shermie auto-guards Roberto's Blazing Strikers!

Shermie          0/-------/----===|-------\-------\0          Roberto

"So, what have you got left, kid? Anything good? I'm starting to get tired - and I bet the crowd's getting..." Ho snaps! This is perhaps a bad thing! What is a bad thing, we might ask? Shermie getting into tactically unsound locations! This time, well - it's letting Roberto get far too close to his soccer ball, and when he puts his hands on it, she's suddenly /all/ serious. As he winds up, she starts walking towards him, taking a breath, and focusing all the tension and fear into one tight little ball in the pit of her stomach. The chi-explosion and strike obscure her from view for a second, but when the flash clears, she's standing tall, holding the ball in her fingers.

"I'm not here to play with your balls, Roberto - I'm here to fight you!" She snarls the words out as she chucks the ball away to the side, stepping inwards and spinning around - once, twice, a third time, she whips her braids at his face - and one heavy boot right at his stomach! That should help him fall down!

Once, twice, and thrice Roberto dodges those braids with an unusual awareness and then he intercepts that heavy boot with a goalie style deflection punching the kick away. "Well the fact that you touched them twice says a lot actually." Damn. Roberto didn't know he even had it in him. Anyway he's going to take that moment between her kick and her putting her foot back to the ground with a swift kick high into the air with a foot glowing with chi and grunt as he lifts his foot.

Shermie          0/-------/----===|=------\-------\0          Roberto

"Mn-hmn. You'll be the envy of your school. And I promise.." Shermie starts to move as he lunges forwards, the giant foot aimed straight for her barely skimming along her thigh as she eels to the left, a gasp of breath as she tries to keep herself from being winded. "Hnnh..! .. That after this fight, I'll make sure you don't get coated in junk..!" She's cocky now, the keyboardist bringing her hands down against his leg, trying to trap it against her side. Fingers try to tickle behind his kneecap as she sets up for another throw.

This one may be a bit different, the woman trying to swing him over by his leg, and to throw him offbalance, to the ground, where she can basically drop a giant ... or not so giant elbow on him. If it works, he'll at least be able to say he had her draped all over him - and really isn't that what fighting is all about? <3

COMBATSYS: Roberto fails to interrupt Fast Throw from Shermie with Bicycle Kick.

And Roberto turns around and lifts up, and over as he attempts to perform a backward flip kick but that actually makes Shermie's job so much easier and so he ends up dropping to the ground hard and ends up getting her draped all over him in the form of the Rockstar's Elbow. Well he may have lost the fight but hopefully he'll have grounds for a break up with his girlfriend after this fight.


".. Mn, that was /good/ for me. How about you?" Shermie's going to lay there in the afterglow for a second or two, enjoying the fact that she's still in one piece, and her body didn't get rocked by another kick. As she stretches out along the guy, she adjusts his hair a bit, then gives him a kiss on the forhead. "Mn... Thank /you/ for that fight. C'mon, kid - let's get you out of here before the come out with the cheese fries." With that, Shermie'll roll off him with a deliberate slowness - kid's gotta have /some/ reward, after all - and then help him to his feet!

COMBATSYS: Shermie has ended the fight here.
