Neo League 426 - #431: Miu vs Zaki

Description: Feathers and chains. All that's missing are the whips and candles. Miu vs. Zaki, fighting on, of all places, Taiyo's roof. (Winner: Zaki)

A clear summer day is in sight at Taiyo High, with sparse fluffy clouds in the sky and the bustling sounds of Southtown at Earth level. At this hour, clubs would be at full swing-- there would be plenty going with martial arts and phys ed groups, archery clubs, and student council matters... But high on the rooftop of the school known for the vigor of it's students, there're not a soul skipping class or eating at the site of today's fight-- the fenced in expanse of the building is reserved for more official matters: Neo-League.

The compeditors this time are actually not from this area, but a rival academy-- and one of them has already found her way to the roof, standing at the edge with one hand grasping the heavy linked wire. That black-haired girl is looking out over the city she's taken to living in since starting at Seijyun... And ... it isn't often she gets to take views like this at her own school, lest she climb trees and hide from classes or authority in pursuit of her own hobbies-- at least, the few she has, the few that aren't broadcast through the rumor mills of the girl's school.

And all of that is something Zaki would probably encourage others to do, on a day like this. Not that she'd ever *join* them for it, since she can't ever stand having anyone teach her how to do /anything/, but that doesn't mean she can't admire those who have more patience than she does. As for Miu, though, Zaki doesn't even know what she does with her free time, since she's never once seen her out in the daylight. Sure, some of her girls say they've seen her out and about, but Aoi's never seen hide nor hair. ...or feather, either!
The Neo League was seemingly about to change that, though. Someone apparently found her and told her Zaki wanted a match and got a day and a venue set, much to the gangster's surprise. And when she arrives at said venue herself, admittedly just a little bit late, she's surprised yet again to see that they weren't just yanking her chain about it. There really is a Kurosaki up here! "Huh! So you really do exist!" she calls out as she exits the door to the stairwell and lets it click shut behind her.

Indeed-- she really does, safe and sound after the clash of Guardian Kings and Pacific Resistance at the mall just the other day! Orange Julius and all.

Her small fingers push her small body off, landing on small feet and ... looking up at the infamous Seijyun ganger from across the roof, walking slowly toward her. There's no floating, etherial grace, or magic tricks used along the way-- and yes, she does have legs-- but she gives Zaki a rather strange look. "What is that supposed to mean? Are they telling stories at school again?"

The first year student's head shakes. "It doesn't matter. Yes, I exsist. Though in retort, I thought that you would be a little taller." Or a scary gorilla of a woman covered in copious amounts of leather and chains. Spikes, even.

"So," she says, looking a little awkward-- chatting prior to a fight was never her strong suit. But her arms pull up to her chest, snapping hard to her sides. The abundant force within Miu flares briefly, the excess released through her hands into a twin burst of glowing black energy feathers that glide gently to the ground and fade into bits and bits of energy.

"Whenever you are ready, senpai."

Well, Zaki does sort of have an excuse for not knowing what's been going on for the past couple of weeks. She's been paying far too much attention to matters concerning Akira Kazama, and messing around in Thailand trying to bring her back. But whatever happened with that is history now and the redhead is able to once again try her hand at league fighting, so she's doing so, and trying to kill two birds with one stone in the process by seeing just why it is the other students *do* talk about her so much.
"Ah, something like that I guess. Heh. It's probably nothing. A conflict between our schedules or something. Glad to see we're finally gonna get to do this, though." As for the little comment about her height, what can she say? Her boots do have heels on them, so it's not like she could give that as an excuse.
"Pretty flashy. That stuff about you packing some kind of strange power must be true at least. I'm more interested in your style, though... " And as she says that bit, the gangleader reaches up to the padlock on her neck and snaps the chain off that was dangling from it, to start twirling it slowly at her side and picking up speed. Then when she's ready, as Miu says, she let's it fly and aims it low to find one of those legs she's still just the slightest bit skeptical she's really seeing. "Let's see you dance!" Because well, if she doesn't, she's probably about to trip and fall on her ass when Zaki yanks her feet out from under her.

Strange...? Well, that much is true-- the man with the bladed cape had given it a name, though she isn't all that ready to accept it as gospel. Call her crazy, but someone that tries to saw her in half...? Not to be trusted. Irregardless, Miu's small frame stands in a pose that seems far too casual to be called anything remotely resembling a fighting stance: Her arms hang loosely at her sides, she stands completely flat-footed, and she seems to be presenting an awfully large target of herself. So it comes as no surprise that Zaki's chain spins, corkscrews out, and sure enough snags what seems to be her ankle! But her lips part and tongue snaps a harsh "Tch!" when the length of metal attempts to pull her leg out from under her-- instead leaning her weight backward and lifting her leg far enough to grab at the chain and keep her from being dragged along like this was a rodeo... but still sprawling back flat on her rear.

Quickly standing back up, Miu stumbles a step and opts to ignore the pain in her ankle. Ignored, as she twirls hard to her right, her low-set hand casting out a glowing black feather at high speed-- and then twirling back the other way to throw a second!

Zaki on the other hand, does sorta have a stance. It's just not anything anyone would recognize from any kind of 'official' style. Everything she does has to be by her own design, and fighting probably most of all. For this reason, she can actually appreciate that Miu doesn't take up a stance, and see it for what it is. The other girl isn't just being lazy, or trying to keep her real stance a secret until later. She quite likely doesn't need one in order to do her thing.
"I guess that's not *too* bad. I thought the story was that you were a bit faster, though?" the redhead wonders aloud. And before she can quite reel her chain back in all the way, one of those feathers is already sailing toward her like a dart, so she has to stop about halfway and turn aside of it. This doesn't quite work and she gets clipped across the torso, and then grazed by the second one as well. "Hn. Like bullets. I see how it is."

COMBATSYS: Zaki focuses on her next action.

Benimaru has arrived.

Like bullets-- and despite her earlier performance... -now- so is she. Not waiting for Zaki to catch her breath or for her to reel in the chain, the fact that her feathers have even-- in part-- struck her elder classmate registers only briefly. Tilted forward and sprinting on the balls of her feet like something out of a ninja anime, the small fighter positions herself at what could only be dubbed "point blank range." Springing into the air and whipping around in a circle, long ponytail and all. Her left leg lashes out, the heel of her shoe set to drive into the middle of Zaki's chest...

But more curiously than that, those feathers displayed before? Trail from her foot in a sweeping arc.

Rushing into close-quarters like that may or may not be a good idea right now. Usually it's not a good idea at all unless you're some bruiser like Shenwoo, but with her chain still not fully gathered up into her hands there's more of a chance to get a hit in. At least, that's what logic would dictate. It's not quite as much a sure thing when you realize Zaki's got more than just the one chain. Right now there's another one wrapped around the wrist of her free hand, reinforcing it specifically for giving really strong right hands, and it's one of these that Miu ends up running smack into at the same moment that her foot connects with Zaki's chest. "Hmph!"

There's a satisfying feeling when one's attack goes as planned-- the feeling of foot against ribs and the force conveyed with it. Just ... when someone else uses an attack of their own, it makes life a whole lot more awkward.

And painful.

Miu's eyes go wide as for a moment, she could swear her ribs just touched her spine and the air is made to escape her lungs in a painful rush, her arms and other leg sweeping forward with the force of the chain-reinforced punch. While her pain is brutish and physical, the kick left behind may sting and annoyingly tingle for a few moments. Still, it's clear which one of the pair came out on top with that exchange of blows.

Miu only barely manages to catch herself on her feet, even still reeling afterward with a hand clasped to her chest and gasping for air. With oxygen in her lungs or no, her right arm becomes visibly tense-- and the power within her rises. Feathers start seeping out of her fist and forearm, and the crow girl of Seijyun once again steps into melee range. Her fist thunders forward, but the punch is clearly too far out of range to strike...! But as her arm surges ahead, the feathers flow ahead and spin outward into a drill-like lance that rips through the air just beyond her fist-- and likewise, seeking to slam into Zaki in a manner much like a chain-wrapped fist to the chest. "Haa!!" she calls over the hard rushing of wind that accompanies her strike.

Miu              1/-------/=======|=======\-------\1             Zaki

The upperclassman was doubtlessly pleased with how things went just now, but how much isn't all that apparrent on the surface. She's not bragging, or laughing, and the 'hmph' was the sound of her putting in effort. Oh and, the mask obviously makes it hard to tell if she's smiling or smirking or showing any other such expression. All she really does is give one firm nod of her head, and then start tapping her foot.
She *was* trying to find a rhythm while she watched Miu's movements, but the girl recovers a little more quickly than she anticipated and it throws the gangster off a bit The jingling of her chain as she drags it back in close hurriedly to catch up is all wrong to her, and though she tries to get out of the way it's not even close to being quick enough. Zaki goes leaping back, attempting to get just out of range, but the feathers keep on coming and spear the same spot that was earlier grazed. "Agh! What the hell!" she grunts through clenched teeth, sent staggering back with her chain already pulled taut between her fists.
"I dunno what that was, but you better be ready for the payback it earned, Kurosaki!" The older girl then pushes herself off the the fencing that surrounds the roof and wheels herself around once before letting her chain fly once more, though this time it's meant to hit the smaller girl square in the torso, and should it make contact, it'll stick like a magnet until all of the electric chi running down the steel links is spent.

Miu              1/=======/=======|-------\-------\0             Zaki

Her fist remains extended, her eyes narrowed a little bit as the excess of energy-- so thick in the air that even the slightest of sensitive people could feel it-- bursts into a massive spiral of feathers after the full charge of power into her fellow Seijyun student. They catch and carry on the wind, drift all over and fade... many of which even before they hit the ground.

Her fist draws back a bit closer as she changes her stance only slightly, shaking out her hand as the tingling sensation even fills her own body. 'I was hoping to have done more with one punch,' she thinks to herself. But no, Zaki is far too resiliant than that-- and she even makes her own attack known and ready. Miu's agile body again lunges forward, though slanting hard to one side in hopes of keeping herself away from whatever comes. But even before she can reach the fifth step and start her tactic, the chain smacks squarely into her chest and unloads an excess of electric-like chi. Her body jerks and spasms, unable to grab the chain and unable to run away... "K-G-- Gyaaaaaah!"

And once it's all over, she drops to her knees, slouching ahead to catch herself on her hands, feeling awfully sore and probably letting off a little smoke on the edges. Breathing hard and trying to regain her senses, Miu's eyes close and her breathing becomes deep-- a forced, slow pace to fight the burning in her muscles while trying to stand. "T-That... still wasn't enough, senpai..."

COMBATSYS: Miu gains composure.

All right, so the model was a little late. Though technically he wasn't, Benimaru Nikado, the heartthrob of teenage girls everywhere was actually just stopping by to see if he could pay Yuki a visit- And then had heard that there was a match going on up on the roof by some passing students. Well, since he was here, he may as well check it out, and it looks like it pays off, for the blonde model. Clad in his usual jeans and leopard-print top, the model enters a world where the fighters in question actually override his usual fangirl mob-enducing looks. Which is just fine with him.

"Oh, you don't think? Well here, have the rest then!" she barks back. And no, she doesn't mean more electricity. She wishes. She just means the rest of the chain. Rather than pull it back, she throws the end she was holding at Miu like she just doesn't want the thing anymore. Maybe she's blaming *it* for what Miu just told her? Whatever the case, it's heavy, and there's so much length to it that it flips over and over itself several times and travels in a parabolic path which is kind of hard to read.
"Che!" she clicks, just before some unusually tall hair catches her eye at the corner of her vision. What was Benimaru doing here?

Miu              1/-======/=======|-------\-------\0             Zaki

Though Miu's standing and quite upright, there's still a haze over her vision-- the excessive chi that's struck her, the shot to her chest is still hurting horribly... she can still defend! Her arms lift to try to catch that snake of a chain in her hands, though the leading end still manages to pile into her chest before she can stop it and half-pull, half-shove the length of metal to the ground. "Ghh-!!"

In her position, it's really a bad idea to divert her attention-- and so, even with the sudden and unexpected appearance of the lightning-tossing blonde, Miu's focus remains on her league battling opponent. "Your strikes do hurt, senpai... but..."

The energy again rises-- higher than before, to a rate that surprised many others in the past.

Miu clamps her eyes shut and draws her lips into a tight line, eyebrow furrowed as she tries to draw more and more of that force out-- and it manifests again, feathers bleeding out of her knuckles, between her fingers, from her palm. It continues from hand to wrist to forearm and elbow, the phenomenon continuing to her shoulder-- and charging at Zaki at that point, her eyes focusing on the redheaded gang leader. "Ghh--" And as she gets awfully close, Miu's small body whips around in a hard circle-- and from her right fist, a long white feather emerges in a manner like it were a katar. Poised high over her head, it seeks to set a hard slash across Zaki's torso...

Miu              0/-------/----===|=------\-------\0             Zaki

Miu spins much like a top-- her feet just barely over the ground, and ... well, yes, she still has legs! There's no mere spin to this, but a conscious effort to slash, cut, cut, slash, cut-- and finally, her feet plant against the ground and a massive surge signals the coming attack. Her left arm barrels ahead as the massive gathering of energy feathers -explodes- from her fist in a manner much larger, much louder, and much more powerful than before, spinning hard like a lance that continues to thrust, dig, and bite at her classmate's body, trying so hard to shatter her defenses and hit her with enough force to throw her across the rooftop and into the buffer of the fencing around the roof. Even if guarded, the strong sting and tingling sensation remains, and the air has a smell to it not unalike ozone. Rather than a strong wind this time, it sounds more like the Taiyo rooftop was just assaulted by dozens and dozens of birds, from the great echoing sound of wingbeats that blows by...

That spot in her midsection where she's been struck several times already in this fight in understandably a little tender, so Zaki is even more determined to cover it now that Miu is coming at her again with something she can't quite read, since she's never seen it before or even heard tale of a technique like it. Sure, she knows from experience now that Kurosaki's feather can slice and stab into you, and that they bring some weird energy with them, but that's pretty much the extent of what she can figure. And so she keeps her arms crossed down in front of her, and brings a knee up in addition to that to stop the first strike, and then she starts to get a little angry when the pain starts to build up in those limbs.
The anger doesn't really begin to come out until Miu carries into the rest of her assault, though."I see you ain't afraid to pull out all the stops!" Zaki first shouts, and then brings her foot down in a sudden stomp that causes a small red aura to light up the small area of the roof she's standing in. It's not quite on the same level as what the younger student is unleashing, but it does turn out to be enough to help Zaki block each successive hit with the chain wrapped around her one wrist, beneath the sleeve, and then it gives a stronger flare just before it dies out to help her weather the explosion of psi-charged feathers.
She's breathing a little harder behind her mask for her efforts, but for the most part when that noise finally stops, the gangster is still standing, and reaching back to give the mother of all backhands to to Miu's pale little face.

Again-- the feathers surge ahead just beyond her fist and explode, becoming a great spiral of feathers that rain across the rooftop of Taiyo High, some even scattering off into the wind beyond the roof of the school. Miu's arm remains extended, though she breathes just as heavy-- if not harder-- than Zaki, hand shaking a bit as the excess of power escapes her arm. Zaki is back in close range one more time with a ready hand, one ready to smack Miu right across the face.

The crow girl's pale little face jerks back and down as she lowers herself just a little bit more-- not that she was a massive target already-- and falls to one knee. With a grunt, she reaches out to wrap both arms around Zaki's right leg and -lift-, to pull her up off balance and get her classmate knocked down to the ground as quickly as possible. Feathers spill from her hands on the lunge...

Zaki swats nothing but air with the back of her hand, and nearly ends up overextending herself on the swing, making it seem easy for Miu to grab her leg and bring her down with it. It's a little too easy, though. Like she's falling on purpose. And as it turns out, she's leaning forward to bring her fist down on top of the ponytailed girl's head, with a few loosened links of the chain that's been wrap around her arm pulled tight across her knuckles. "You shoulda stayed back, Kurosaki." she grunts, and then goes rolling away to kick back up to her feet and take her stance a few feet away. She's hoping that was enough to finally put her classmate down, but she has yet to see so she's not going to turn around just yet.


Miu's teeth rattle and her head recieves a massive whallop. Sitting on the roof with her legs folded to either side, her hands clamp down on her head and her body bends forward to try to deal with that pain by 'positive' reinforcement. Ordering herself not to cry, telling herself to suck it up and try to keep from letting the pain overcome her senses.

"Khh..." she growls through clenched teeth-- that's her response to being told to stay back.

Pedalling at the ground with hands and feet, Miu's back on her footing for one last brutal charge-- and with a huge swing of her arm, another white feather bursts forth from her knuckles to serve as a blade to chop at Zaki. "Shut UP!"

There's a bit of jingling as Zaki readjusts the chain so that it's no longer dangling down over her fist, and then she notices Miu's still moving over there, climbing back to her feet and charging at her suddenly. She decides to hop back a good distance rather than just risk leaning out of the way.
More than just getting her out of the rach of the desperate featherswipe, though, it puts her near a metal airvent sticking up out of the school's roof. Aoi really can't resist the temptation of kicking it loose and picking it up so she can swing it at Miu, so she just goes with it! "Stay -down-!"

Swish! The white feather 'ejects' from her fist after the miss, but the small girl isn't about to slow down now. Wherever this head of steam had come from, it was more than enough to get her moving forward again-- ever forward, ever furiously. As the air vent is torn up and cast at her, Miu suddenly leaps into the air-- although some would better state it as 'flying'. Hurtling completely upside-down, the crow-girl's body is primed to drop -directly- behind Zaki, complete with her hand reaching out to grab at her senpai's shoulder. Using that as her leverage, Miu attempts to flip herself around and latch onto the tall redhead's back. Her fist cocks back with a white feather at her knuckles-- and she -punches-, looking to coldcock Zaki in the back of the head with enough force to knock her over-- and it even has enough force to send -Miu- flying.

Well, the vent is kind of heavy, so when she completely misses with it like that, it just kinda of slams back down onto the roof, in a different spot than it started, and Zaki is still holding onto it. While this does nothing to help her dodge, it does give the redhead a little something to fall on when Miu punches her in the back of the head with yet another of her feathers.
However, it's not quite enough to knock Zaki out. Call her hard headed, but she's still about to stomp over and give Miu a swift kick in the ass!

Suddenly, Miu's bumped into the air.

"Ow!!" A stiff kick that sets the small girl airborne and causes her to stumble all the same-- and she isn't happy about it. Expending so much energy in such a short time has it's tolls-- and those tolls are being taken out on her right now, through hard and heavy breathing and the clear struggle for her to keep her eyes open. But from an assault like that, no sir, no -way- is she going to let that be the end of it. "Khhh-- ghh--"

Eyes closing, her right arm again takes on the excess of energy from the girl's seemingly limitless source, as tiring as it is for her body. Her fist lifts, her hand grasps her wrist. "Please, one more...!" she says, though the words are to no one in particular-- whatever the source of her energy is, perhaps. As her eyes open, her arm whips hard to the side, feathers surging out from fingertips to shoulder and causing a distortion of wind even before it leaves her arm. Miu runs ahead, finally finding it in her to let out a gutteral sort of roar before stopping in front of Zaki-- closer than before-- and whipping her arm about as hard as she can. "HAA!!"

'Break through... break through!!'

The energy spirals out into the lance-like form with the roar of wingbeats and tries so hard to blast the infamous Seijyun student one last time-- hopefully hard enough to shatter her defenses, and leave no room for evasion!

Impressive. Benimaru gives a short nod of his head, he's actually pretty impressed with both fighters, but he had to admit he was a little more interested in what Zaki was like when she wasn't kicking his ass. A little rough around the edges, but nothing to really complain about- Plus it seemed to suit her.
On the other hand, a little refining wouldn't hurt at all. Miu was a curious case though, feathers and junk like that, that was new. He'd have to take her out for a soda sometime or something.
Deciding he'd seen enough for now though, he goes ahead and makes his disappearance for now. Just because that's what all the cool-ass people do.
And you can bet your bottom dollar that Benimaru is cool as he is handsome.

Good old reliable kick in the ass. Sometimes you can't beat it! This was one of those times. "Hahaha... Why did that feel so good?" Oh right, probably because Beni is watching. But there's no real time to walk over and greet him with a punch in the arm, because Miu still thinks she has one shot left in her. "Eh? One more what? O- oh hells no."
But what's she going to do about it? She probably doesn't have enough energy left to call her aura back out like she did before. No, it looks like she's going to have to use her spare chains for this one, and a little bit of cat's cradle. As fast she she posibly can, Aoi shoots two somewhat-thinner chains than what she normally uses up out of her sleeves and skillfully weaves them together into something with a little more surface area. It's still just some zig-zagged chains, so a lot of the energy Miu throws at her gets through anyway when she holds this up in front of her, stretched between her clenching fingers, but there's also some chi pumping into it so it manages to help *just enough* that she doesn't get blown off her feet. Oh, and it totally looked like a pentagram before it got destroyed.
"Rrgh... damn." When it's all over, Zaki is grumbling and rubbing the back of her head as she's declared the winner by the league crew that was staying well out of the way until now.

COMBATSYS: Zaki has ended the fight here.

It strikes-- and for all Miu knows at this point, her feathers have struck home and ended the battle. It's hard to see, hard to tell... but when the lance of feathers explodes this time around, breaking up into that spiral, the crow girl isn't able to hold that pose afterward and let the excess of energy run free from her body and 'cool down'. This time, her knees buckle and her weight pitches her small body to one side, collapsing to the hard roof of Taiyo High with half-lidded eyes and breathing heavily.

She's not dead, but ... exhausted. And her chest is going to hurt like hell tomorrow...

But now, at least, she's proven to the gang leader of Seijyun that she really does exsist? Not just as an urban legend or a myth amoungst students, but hopefully also as a fighter of some sort...

Zaki thumbs at her nose a bit, even though it's just a gesture for her. She can't actually, y'know... touch her nose, with the leather in the way. But after that point, she's pretty much done acting all tough. The cameras are shut off, and it's like the moment everybody but her and Miu and the medics starts to clear out, she starts to slouch way down and sets her hands against her knees. "Oogh, I dunno what it is you did to my head but that crap hurts. Maybe it's good you're always hiding someplace! Man."
Rant over, she then flops onto her back and blows a little hair out of her face. Somehow. "I swear though, you underclassmen just keep getting stronger. STOP IT." She's totally kidding, though. "Nah, it's nice to finally meet you, Kurosaki-san. And don't hesistate to ask me at school when you need help with a bully or something, yeah?"
