Neo League 476 - #498: Chae Lim vs Drake

Description: Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, located on the eastern end of Jejudo Island in Korea is the beautiful location for this Neo League match! This match marks the debut for Korean Tae Kwan Do artist, Chae Lim, and the return of Drake "Domino" Vyril. (Winner: Drake)

Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, located on the eastern end of Jejudo Island in Korea is a fantastic sight to see. Originally under the sea, the peak rose up due to a volcanic eruption more than 100,000 years ago. The crater spans nearly six-hundred meters in diameter and rests at the very least ninety meters high. Ninety-nine sharp rocks surround the green crater, giving one the almost surreal feeling of sitting inside a rather large crown. The southeast and northern sides of the crater drop off in a sharp cliff, but the northwestern side is a grassy hill which is easily traversable by foot or horseback.

Golden rays of a dying sun cast their glow upon the rocky crown, reflections cast in the water below the summit. Not yet evening, and the weather is extremely beautiful for this time of year; temperatures reaching new highs for the season. Perfect weather for an outdoor Neo League match, especially when one gets to show off the beauty of her homeland.

Riding up the hill upon the back of a stark black mare, Chae Lim fidgets about in a nervous manner. Trying hard not to allow the mare to pick up on the nervous tension, she finally dismounts and takes the reigns so that she can walk the remaining twenty feet or so to the location of the match. Cameras have been set about between the pointed rocks, and a rough ring has been roped out in the center of the crater.

So, Chae Lim wants to fight in Korea, and for reals. Drake is usually opposed to this sort of thing. No, not fighting. He's generally opposed to fighting the people he's close to for points and such. That rarely ever ends well, and almost always sprouts up rivalries.. and before long, poof! No more friendships and such.

But you know what? Screw it. Drake's been out of the spotlight way too long, so he doesn't care -who- he fights so long as he reminds everyone who the best fighter is... and who looks the best while fighting.

But Drake's nowhere to be seen at first. No, Chae Lim arrives only with a horse for company. But after a few seconds, Drake hops up over the horizon on one of the tall bordering rocks, form silhouetted in the fading sunlight. He stands there a few seconds, arms folded over his chest, wind playing with the ends of his belt. Suddenly the model martial artist is in motion, taken to the air in a forward flip that lands him in the makeshift 'ring' in a crouch, left fist hammered against the grass, right arm extended out behind him.

Amethyst eyes affix to Chae Lim.

"Best not hold back," warns Domino.

Tethering the horse to a nearby post, the Korean girl nearly falls backward when she spots the sun blotting form. Several questions arise as to how he got there without rock climbing gear, or how he was able to maintain his balance during the hop and not crash over the side of the cliff. Time enough for answers later, though.

Doe brown eyes settle upon Domino, and Chae Lim winds her way along the grassy path to the ring. Her entrance may not be all that exciting, but she's no wrestler. Stepping over the rope, she bows to him and smiles.

"I do not intend to." Taking a deep breath to calm her nerves, she slowly exhales and then adds, "Good luck, Domino."

"Luck. Pft..." Luck with Domino doesn't mix. He scarcely believes in it. The concept of luck, in fact, offends him. But even still, he raises to his full height and shrugs at the Korean girl. If she was expecting a great deal of niceties from him, she'll be rather disappointed. He simply assumes his stance, left foot moving forward, right foot holding most of his balance in a backstance. Right hand chambers open at his chest level, held at the ready to grab for her, and his left arm angles before him, palm flat. And from there, he just waits for either the fight to start, or someone to call for it.

Chae Lim wasn't really expecting a bunch of niceties. She's learned, through their sparring, how serious he can be when fighting. When he seems to take offence at her offer of good luck, her shoulders slump a little. The Korean girl knows he doesn't need it, but it was a genuine comment.

Doe brown eyes take in the scenery and she limbers her body up a little. A cameraman taps the camera twice and calls out, "FIIIGHT!" Looks like it's time for things to get started. Moving forward, she swings her body around. The instep of her foot aims for his shin. Another spin of the body, and another roundhouse kick angling toward his thighs. In rapid succession, she fires off a third kick; this one aiming for his torso.

And the kicks come off too quickly to sufficiently block or move out of the way from. So he's staggered aside a couple steps, but he quickly regains his footing. His hands lash out to grab for her shoulders, and he drops back, attempting to pull her with him. His left foot lifts to set to her midsection, and with that, he aims to launch her out behind him and kip back up to his feet.

Out of the corner of those beautiful doe brown eyes, the Korean girl spies hands lashing out toward her shoulders. Twisting down and away from him before he manages to grab her, the look on her face becomes slightly more serious. Trying not to allow him any time to think or calculate a next move, she lunges back in toward him and bends her knees. Right fist facing downward, she strikes out toward his shoulder with a left-handed straight punch.

Yet another strike lands against Domino before he can react to it, and it's starting to agitate him. The hit against his shoulder nudges him back, but he appears only a bit more determined for it. His left foot lifts as if to chamber for a kick, only for him to drop suddenly forward into a low frontal stance on that foot. Both hands rocket out towards her midsection in a forceful double palmheel strike, hyper-extending his arms. And the moment they've extended out fully, his hands ignite in an explosion of dazzling white concussive energy.

Perhaps she's getting a little cocky with both her previous attempts hitting true. Waiting a fraction of a second too long before attempting to get out of the way of his palmheel strike, she gets hit twice. First comes the hands which cause Chae Lim to stagger backward several steps. Recovering her footing from that as swiftly as possible, the explosion of energy blinds her and forces her back against the mediocre rope that is in place to form the ring. Surprising that it holds in place and she doesn't tumble over the top of it.

Gritting her teeth, she advances on him again. This time, she brings her right knee forward across her chest and swings her hip to the side while extending her leg outward and attempting to hit him in the chest with the outer edge of her foot.

Domino advances on Chae Lim to press the assault, but she's coming in towards him just as readily. What looks kind've like a sidekick hits him well enough, knocking him back a few feet from her. Teeth grit and the model steps in swiftly to close the distance again, leading this time with a left-armed elbowsmash aimed for her chest, followed by a reverse knifehand strike aimed for the side of her neck from the same arm.

Side-stepping the oncoming strikes, Chae Lim circles around him. Sweeping her hand upward, she brushes the white bangs off of her face and works her way in front of him. Reaching forward, she attempts to take hold of the right sleeve of his gi. A successful grab will see her planting her foot firmly on the ground in front of him while she tries to yank him forward and toss him over her hip and to the grass below.

Domino's strikes whiff through the air, very much to his surprise. The next thing he knows is Chae Lim is circling around him and attempting to grab him by the sleeve. See, this is why he typically doesn't wear shirts when fighting. Causes problems. Nevertheless, his arms twists over to evade her grasp, and he instead steps in towards her. His right arm goes to hook over her stomach, and his left arm sweeps between her legs to hoist her into a cradled position by his side. And if caught, he hops up and drops to the side, landing half atop the Korean and slamming her back down against the grass in a sidewalk slam.

As his right arm moves to hook over her stomach, Chae Lim catches it at the wrist and holds it while she spins herself out of grappling range. This places her with her back to Domino, but she uses the position to her advantage. Whirling around, she swings out a roundhouse kick toward his torso. More graceful in it's strike than the previous roundhouse attempts, this one sees her foot sheathed in a raw, wind-like energy before it extends fully.

With the grapple attempt failing, Domino makes a small, frustrated noise. She's.. actually putting up more of a fight than he's used to from her. But he catches sight of her out of the corner of his eye moving around behind him, and so he simply drops forward into a roll to clear way of whatever nastiness she was intending on doing to him. He smoothly ends back on his feet and he whirls around to face her, eyes narrowed. He twists over in a quick spin and launches his right leg out in a sharp sidekick aimed for her stomach.

With his right leg coming in from the side, Chae Lim dances in the opposite direction, narrowly avoiding being hit by it. Truthfully, the Korean girl is putting up as much fight as she can muster. He told her not to hold back, so she's doing her utmost to see that he gets a decent fight out of her.

Twirling her body back around, she sends the flat and heel of her right foot out toward his stomach. A standard mule kick, with just a tiny bit more spin than a normal fighter might add to it.

Domino's foot impacts only air again. Good lord. He isn't used to missing half this much. But then she's twisting around, and the model side-steps to evade the kick. But with her back facing him, he decides to try something a little more hard-hitting. He moves in behind her and attempts to grab her in a reverse headlock under his left arm. His right hand grabs for the waistband of her kickboxing pants, and he goes to hoist her into the air in a suspended suplex. After waiting several seconds for the blood to rush to her head, he finally drops back, aiming to smash her against the grass on her front.

Spinning her foot back into position behind her, Chae Lim balances herself for just a second before she's caught by surprise. Squeaking as she's grabbed into the headlock, she twists and turns in order to break free. When she's hoisted off of the ground, she stops the excessive squirming, not wanting to fall prematurely. Blood drains into her head, actually causing her face to become flushed and a feeling of light-headedness to pass through her. Dizzied, she smashes against the ground with a sharp cry in a mixture of surprise and pain.

Seconds pass, but she soon regains her composure and wriggles her way out from under him. It's tough going for a moment, and it looks as though the Korean girl is going to give up. She's merely stopping to catch her breath, and once she does she kips up to her feet. Hands reach up and rub at either side of her head, trying to force her to focus on the match.

Deciding to fight instead of focusing fully, she leaps up into the air and as she drops down she prepares to slam both feet into his stomach.

Yeah, right. Like Domino's going to just lay there for as long as she's taking to get up. Hell no, the agile wrestler martial artist has long since kipped up to his feet again and turned to face her. Thus, her stomp lands on grass. Rar. But with that having been done, Domino moves in quickly towards her and steps over with his right foot, twisting in a half-circle to suddenly close the distance between them and bring him right beside her. At the end of the footwork, his right fist carries the momentum in a sharp backhand, aimed to crash against her cheek.

Feet whomp upon the grass, but Chae Lim is quick to adjust her weight in order to keep her balance. With him twisting toward her in the manner he is, she prepares herself to swing out of the way of an oncoming kick. It never comes, and once he's nearly atop her, it's too late to move. Raising her arm, she takes the brunt of the backhand to the outer edge with the inner part of her arm slamming against her cheek. This elicits a noise and has her turning her face from the impact.

Doe brown eyes settle upon his face, and she nods. No holding back. Though she doesn't have very much room to work with, due to the proximity of their bodies, she decides to lash out with a palmheel strike to his chest and push herself away from him.

Rather surprised that that attack was blocked, Domino is. It was styled to be unpredictable, after all. So in that moment of surprise, she manages to strike him. Amethyst eyes narrow on her once more, and he steps in again, attempting to hook his right arm under her right arm to just hoist her up and hiptoss her over onto the grass. Nothing fancy or special, really, but hopefully she's starting to wear down.

Chae Lim may not be as vain as some, but she prefers not to have facial bruising! That, and it was sheer luck that she managed to get her hand up in time to block the unpredictable punch. Managing to get several steps away from him, she readies herself for his next move. He steps forward and tries to hook his arm under hers, and she springs back out of the way.

Now -that- had to be pure luck. Drake may not put much stock in such things, but the Korean girl knows that without it, she'd be on her back on the grass by now. Breathing deeply, she lunges in toward him and lashes out with a quick palmheel strike to his shoulder. Following this, she spins herself around and attempts a simple double roundhouse kick to his shin. Pulling her right leg back, she finally sets herself in stance and brings her left knee across her chest. Shooting the leg outward, the outer edge of her foot angles in toward his chest in a vertical kick.

Domino hooks not a thing, and instead looks as though he's doing the chicken dance. Marvelous. But be that as it may, he spies her coming in towards him again. The attacked shoulder shrugs back out of range, and he steps aside from the double roundhouse. Her chambering knee is reacted to with equal finesse - his body twists aside the moment the kick is launched, letting it whiz by.

With a smirk, Domino responds to this combo with a firm, crisp upper-cut strike aimed for her chin. Nothing fancy, but it punctuates the smug look on his face fairly well.

Fist meets chin with a resounding crack. Chae Lim makes nary a sound, for fear of biting her tongue while she screams. As though in slow motion, her feet lift off of the ground and her body goes flying backward to land harshly upon the grass. Expulsion of air is accompanied by a pained groan as she rolls to the side and pushes herself back to her feet.

Taking deep breaths, she launches herself into the air toward him. Descending on an angle, she attempts to slam an overhead axe kick down onto his left shoulder.

Domino assumes his stance once more, amethyst eyes affixed on his female opponent. As she leaps into the air, he steps inwards as opposed to outwards. The axe-kick is a good attempt, but his right hand shoots up to grab her by the ankle, the other hand lifting to set to her thigh to shove her out of the jumpkick and land her facedown in the grass again. Expecting her to roll over, or possibly even stay put (either works), Domino rushes to the side and hops up to perch atop one of the bordering rocks.

One of the nearby cameras is spotted, and the model winks an eye at it and flashes a cocky smile.

Right fist then lifts to signal his high-risk finisher.

Suddenly, Domino is springing into the air in a double backflip. During the first rotation, the wrestler curls into a ball to pick up speed. The second rotation sees him unfurl dramatically in the air, arms and legs spreading to pull the muscular toning along his torso taut in the hopes of slamming his hard, albeit slender body across Chae Lim's.

Chae Lim stays down when she's unexpectedly shoved off course. Hands shot out to break the fall, and she manages to keep from injuring her face on any stray rocks hidden in the grass. Turning her head to the side, she watches as he perches atop one of the tall rocks. It's not until he's flipping through the air that she rolls out of the way and springs up to her feet to avoid him.

Waiting for his body to slam against the ground, she immediately reaches down to lift him up by the shoulders. Completely untrained in what she's about to do, she makes an attempt to haul him into a belly-to-back hold. It should be noted that if she does manage this, she's not lifting him that far off of the ground; only about a foot. Once she's certain she's got him securely in the hold, she'll just drop him on his head very unceremoniously.

Yeah, like he's not good enough at his own signature move to know how to break from it when his target has rolled away. Tut. He's an excellent wrestler - not run of the mill. When he sees Chae move out of the way, his body curls up again to land him in a haphazard crouch. Bah. Not beaten up enough for that, yet.

But then he's getting grabbed and dragged around. He's fairly impressed by this. More impressed by the suplex.. then, of course, pain. Ow. He sprawls on the grass for a second, arms going around his head.. but then he's climbing back to his feet. In an instant, he's lunging for Chae Lim, aiming to grab her by the shoulders...

ChaeLim          1/------=/=======|-------\-------\0            Drake

And with the girl's shoulders grabbed, Domino simply yanks her in towards him, doubling her over by sheer force alone. He locks her neck between his thighs, and his arms lock around her stomach, and before you know it - piledriver hold! But he isn't merciful enough to just drive her head against the ground, though. Heck no.

First, the showboating. Domino walks a small circle to show off his captured opponent and her seemingly hopeless situation. His parade stops with him facing a camera, and his right arm lifts to signal the oncoming pain.

Once both arms are around Chae lim's stomach again, the streamlined muscle along his biceps and forearms tightens visibly. He begins crushing the girl's taut abdomen, caving it inwards excruciatingly... then relenting for just a second, only to begin crushing it in even harder. This continues for several seconds, Domino hoping to be rewarded with pained, possibly even choked cries.. assuming the blood rushing to her head hasn't knocked her out by now.

But then begins phase two! The famed wrestler martial artist leaps high into the air, beginning with a series of forward flips. The motion gains speed on the ascention, curling the two bodies together... and by the time the two are descending, they've blurred into an opaque swirl of motion, all the while with Domino keeping the inverted bearhugging pressure on Chae Lim's stomach. The momentum comes to a shattering stop with the Korean girl's head smashing against the grassy ground, kinetic energy of the blurred flips and their combined bodyweight driving the hit to its fullest. The impact is enough to kick up a cloud of pebbles and dusty debris into the air in a radius around them.

And at the end of it all, Domino keeps the crush on Chae Lim's stomach, and his legs hook over her shoulders to pin her against the grass. He fully expects the Korean to be knocked out after a hit like that... but just for the show of it, he calls out, "Count it!" Yes, pinning in Neo League.

The cameraman removes his hat and scratches his head. There's not really anyone around -to- count it but him. Fighters have requested odder things in the past though, so counting to three isn't all that bad.


Though the poor Korean girl is now the proud owner of a bruised abdomen; during which Domino was indeed rewarded with pained, choked cries, and though her head has created a small crater within the Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak... she manages to wearily pop her right shoulder up before the third count can be called in it's entirety. Coughing due to the dusty debris that is now airborne, she tries to push her way out from under him. Gasping for air, she crawls a few feet away and her body falters. Falling face first on the grass, she fights to push herself back up to her feet. This should allow the model-wrestler enough time to get back up to his feet as well, should he choose to get up.

Finally managing to get on her feet, she makes a long jump toward him. As she lands, she spins about to send a roundhouse kick to his shin. A second spin sees her attempting in a fatigued fashion to send a mule kick at his stomach. Two snap kicks follow this as Chae Lim does her best to try and pick up a little bit of speed. Finally, she launches her left leg up and forward, trying to crash him to his knees with an overhead kick.

After which, she simply falls to the ground on her knees, unable to continue.

Well, so much for Domino's big finish. Bah! She gets that shoulder up, and he twists away from her to get to his feet again. Though she's escaped the pin, she looks like she's out anyway. ...But she's right back up. Geeze. He readies himself for her oncoming attack, prepared to counter it and finish her off... but something's a little off about it. He's seen that look before. She's just barely hanging on.

The jump gets him to tense up a bit more in preparation, and the roundhouse kick she throws is hopped over. The slow mule-kick is easily side-stepped, and the following kicks are dodged with him weaving around behind her back. Once there, his arms go to lock around her stomach again in a brief, but extremely sharp bearhug before letting her go. Hopefully that'll be the end of it. "C'mon, don't over-do it...," he murmers. "Like you better in one piece."

Barely hanging on, Chae Lim can't help but smile at the murmured comment. Lashes fall closed over her doe brown eyes and she signals to Domino that she's done. Breathing labored, body reeling in pain, she really shouldn't have pushed that last attack. She had to -try- though, since this is her debut match and she's showing off one of the beautiful locales in her home country. His arms crush in at her already bruised abdomen, and she struggles briefly while squeaking out small, pained noises. When the struggling stops, she whispers, "I'm done now," and waits for him to take his victory either via pinning or just claiming it.

And with the crush over with, Domino gives her a nudge to hopefully either spill her onto the grass or onto her knees. Some clear indication to their cameraman/announcer that the match has come to a close. But even still, his fists lift into the air in victory, eyes shut and bright smile beaming to the camera.

A gentle breeze could knock the Korean girl over at this point, so with the nudge, she falls dramatically forward. To the cameras, it looks as though Chae Lim's face crashes against the grass, but her hand has actually managed to slip under her cheek to prevent further bruising. There she lies until the medic comes across the peak and checks her vitals; all of which seem to be good other than the extreme bump on the noggin from Domino's last hit.

A tinny voice resonates from a speaker embedded between two rocks, "WINNER.... DOMINO!"

Thaaat's what he wanted to hear. Domino's fists pump once more at that announcement to emphasize that he, in fact, is the victor. Sure, he isn't dressed in typical wrestling manner - dare he think he's dressed more Korean than the actual native Korean present - but still. His fists then lower to his sides and he rushes up to the camera, putting it almost to a full-on facial.

"That's right, ladies and gents at home! Domino's back, and he's in better shape than ever! Missed me?" Domino quirks a playful, self-assured grin. "For those of you who don't know me, get ready to be blown away - I'm the total package, and there's no getting around it. And as for you fangirls out there? You loyal ladies that waited on me? This is for you."

Domino takes a step back and lifts his hand up to his lips and blows a kiss at the camera, followed by a flirty wink. The hand then lifts a little more to whisk through his bangs, permitting them to drift rakishly towards his right eye as per usual. With a roguish smile, he offers a, "Peace out."

That, he figures, they'll close the footage on. Hopefully.
