LLK Act I.War - War : Unforseen Alliances

Description: As Geese attempts to reclaim what's 'his', he needs his people to keep Shadaloo's forces at bay in order to deal with the real threat that Vega represents. In an attempt to lock down the YFCC from further reinforcements, Shihong finds herself the lone ranked SouthSynd present in the infirmary. Unfortunately for her, she's not alone. Shadaloo's own Killer Bee is still around and ready to deal with any interference. Faced with one of Shadaloo's most deadly assassins, Shihong may be in over her head. But there's someone else nosing around that shouldn't be there... an potential unexpected ally in this most desperate moment.

The YFCC infirmary still has an ice cream truck in it.

This is how Shadaloo and NESTS got in, and the gaping hole in the side of the building -- tunneling through a wall or two, as well -- is now flanked by guards. After putting down the defenders, it was child's play to swarm the rest of the building. What was once a teeming refugee stronghold is now a makeshift military base, with some civilians thrown back out into the teeming, dangerous chaos of Southtown's streets, and some kept as hostages, locked away under armed guard.

This transmogrification of the building has largely been overseen by the Killer Bee herself, Cammy. The infirmary works as a makeshift command bunker, communications equipment set up under the newly-hung Shadaloo flag occupying one wall. Most of the actual medical equipment has been scavenged or simply kicked aside, leaving the room a barren mess, beds and shelves used to build makeshift bunker walls to repel any invasion.

Of course, such defensive measures don't work when one leaves the room. Cammy is making the rounds of the building, striding through the halls of the YFCC at a determined clip, eyes darting around laterally to make sure nothing is amiss. Still, she can't be /everywhere/ at once...

"Ahh, what a mess."

Above, across the street from the YFCC and perched atop a small shop roof, Shihong Mao looks on with an expression that seems more amused by the sight than anything. Lowering a pair of throw-away binoculars, she does precisely that as she approaches the edge of the rooftop. Two guards--

"Pff, it's like they're not /trying./"

With a soft 'hup' she pushes off and lands in an adjacent alleyway, snaking her way quietly through the darkness. As long as they don't have their attentions on her, she can find a secondary method of getting inside. And as far as she can tell, the infirmary seems the safest route for her to head into. For now, anyway.

One drainage pipe and some sneaking around later, Shihong is poised above the two guards and looking down with a thin smile. Within moments she descends, legs snapping sharply outward to take one man out via the head before she lands in a crouch, flips up and again snaps her legs out to kick the other armed guard. Once unarmed the men's weapons are seized and promptly emptied of their ammunition.

Quietly skulking along, the Syndicate woman moves cautiously through the destroyed YFCC, surveying the damages done and making note of the situation at hand. The orders were simple enough: heckle the invaders, run them off, get them the hell out of the YFCC for whatever reason. She could do that.

Ultimately, the Syndicate woman finds herself in the infirmary-turned-communications bunker. Blinking her red eyes once and slowly, the woman's pale face sours just a little before a wry grin edges its way jaggedly over her lips. Oh, so this is what they've been up to..? Well then.

Shihong Mao wastes no time in moving to the nearest radio and ripping the hulking thing off a desk and out of a wall before throwing it to the ground before moving on to the next thing she can easily destroy before the cavalry arrives...

There was a small, silent shuffling sound. Like a jungle cat lurking in the shadows. The guards did not notice it. No, they were too busy getting a face full of Mao to investigate such a tiny, minor thing. But as Shihong walks in, someone else slips from the opposng alleyway in a haughty strut. Nose twisted in the air, the strange man was fuming. He just got on the scene in time to see Shihong take out the guards. That was horrible. As the man reached the unconscious guard, he snaps. Driving a heel down on the chest of one of the guard, the sound of his body armor breaking breaks through the outside of the infirmary, alerting of his presence.

Adon was pissed. Here he was in Southtown, trying to hunt down some really easy to beat up members of the Neo-League. He just wanted some easy points. And with those easy points, he would certainly secure his position as one of the best fighters in the world. But then, right as he was chilling, someone showed up with a problem. See, the YFCC was under attack. And the poor members there needed to be saved. And Adon was going to do it. After getting the SNOT beaten out of him, the Emperor of Muay Thai agreed. And here he was. Still pissed.

And hungry for blood.

Adon doesn't even bother with the same stealth as Shihong. He just stomps on into the building, and screams loudly. "EXCUSE ME! The EMPEROR of MUAY THAI DEMANDS that ALL MEMBERS of the YFCC get your ASSES out HERE! NOW! Everyone ELSE! SUCK my MASSIVE JAGUAR PENIS!" The Emperor of Muay Thai screams, cracking his knuckles as he grins with intense pleasure. Shihong might not have to worry about that cavalry after all. Apparently, Adon was looking forward to stirring up this hornet's nest.

But maybe he doesn't realize this holds the Killer Bee.

Adon's intense pleasure as he yells about penises aside, the commotion does attract the attention of Doll Zero.

Cammy instantly makes a beeline back toward her little communications nest, dashing through hallways, padded boots rendering her movements silent. Her timing is perfect -- she scrambles to the top of the ice cream truck, crawling along the roof for a perfect vantage of both the rampaging Shihong and the advancing Adon. Cammy watches for just a second before scooting forward and rising into a crouch at the corner of the van, peering down at Shihong.

"And just what do we think we're doing, hmm?" the petite English assassin says, Cammy's scarred visage glaring evenly down at Shihong.

Just when Shihong had thought things were going well...

From behind a startling, loud-mouthed cry briefly disarms the woman--literally. A piece of expensive equipment in hand is all but flung out of her hands when Adon screams loudly and parades through the building and into the infirmary. A loud crash and bang later, the Syndicate woman looks up with a sour expression on her face, teeth clenched fiercely behind her thin lips. Who the hell is this guy? Is he Shadaloo..? NESTS? It's impossible to really discern; his announcement was rather vague in her mind.

"Who the hell are you supposed to be?" she asks the self-styled Emperor. But before she can add to her thoughts and drill Adon on just what the hell he's doing here anyway, a sudden and rather feminine voice draws her attentions. Immediately, Shihong's red eyes dart onto the Zero Doll perched nearby.

"What I am doing here," she begins, lifting a heeled foot before she drops it down, grinding the steel stiletto against broken innards of the communications radio. "Is cleaning up this god-awful mess. Really?" Thumbing over her shoulder to the flag, she arches a brow as she adds, "The flag is really messing the feng shui here up." Shihong sighs lightly after, shoulders sagging.

"But...I guess you're here with those Shadaloo and NESTS fools. I don't even know who this guy--" She points absently to Adon. "--is or what his story is, but I do know one thing for certain. My boss wants you guys out of here, and that's precisely what I've come to do. It's nothing /personal/; it's just business."

The woman moves mere seconds after the words escape her lips, attempting to close in on the Zero Doll. Nearing that busted up van she'll spring up into the air and twist her lanky body, attempting to deliver a quick spinning kick in the air to the side of her head and knock her off and onto even ground.

Adon crosses his arms, waiting for someone, anyone else to show up. Shihong's voice catches his attention. Looking down on the skinny Chinese woman, he just rolls his eyes. Really. She didn't know the Emperor of Muay Thai. At least, from what Adon understood, she wasn't a significant threat by proxy. ANYONE of some importance would know the Emperor of Muay Thai. Or at least of some danger. So that put her somewhere between flunkie and YFCC.

Adon was about to explain who he was (if his announcement didn't make it clear enough). But then, Cammy shows up. And the Emperor just walks to a nearby stack of equipment by a wall. With a solid sweep of his arm, he knocks it over to the ground with a clatter, and plants his back against the open space. Crossing his arms, he just listens.

The Jaguar suddenly releases a sharp stab of giggling as Shihong launches herself at Cammy. "KEE HEE HEE! The EMPEROR of MUAY THAI is AMUSED at what has UNFOLDED BEFORE HIM. SHADALOO and NESTS... AGAINST an AGENT of the SYNDICATE. TRULY there is no greater BLOOD SPORT!" Adon just watches the fight unfold. He didn't know whether to punch them both out, or just punch one of them out.

Frankly, he was just here for the kids.

Cammy moves quickly, but not quickly enough -- Shihong's kick strikes her right in the decorative little tie adorning her sternum, causing her to fly off the truck and into a wall before bouncing to the ground. Kipping up to her feet, Cammy sneers. "Shihong, is it?" she says, before turning her gaze toward Adon. "And Adon. A bit of a strange team."


Cammy is reading through the files on prominent Southtown Syndicate operators while she makes Juni braid her hair. "Shihong Mao," Cammy says. "I daresay if we threw enough money at her, she'd no longer be a problem, but I doubt our master would approve."

"Weren't there unconfirmed reports that she was married to G--" Juni begins, before Cammy cuts her short by spinning around mid-braiding and smacking her in the cheek.

"Do we do all our intelligence gathering at SuperStreetGawker.com, now, Juni?" the Killer Bee asks, crossly.


Shihong on one side, Adon on the other, and a dull ache in her sternum -- Cammy quickly tries to decide on her next move, and decides that as a wild card in this struggle, Adon should be prioritized. "You could quite simply have stayed in Thailand, you know," Cammy says as she lunges toward Adon, swinging a sharp roundhouse toward his jaw. "We'd have gotten to you eventually."

Fortunately, Shihong isn't too concerned nor does she care who Adon may or may not be. She has a reason and purpose here, and that's to drive out anything and anyone who isn't with the Syndicate. So far, he hasn't shown himself to be one way or the other--neutral at best. So as long as it remains that way...

She charges, leaping up and delivering a kick to the girl and sending her into the nearest wall. Landing in a low crouch, the lanky Syndicate woman rises slowly, red eyes humored a bit as the blonde kicks back onto her feet and regards her. "Yes, it is," she smoothly replies. "Unfortunately, I've not the pleasure of knowing who you are, but something tells me you aren't the social sort." Her gaze shifts only briefly, once again regarding 'Adon' before she exhales and focuses back on Cammy.

"Really, I swear," she explains. "He's not with me."

Eventually, the Zero Doll makes her move again, assaulting the Emperor of Muay Thai. Using the girl's focus to her advantage, Shihong attempts to close in behind the Doll and pivots on her heel and coils her leg at the hip. Once her back is to the girl it snaps out like a piston, aimed for the small of Cammy's backside.

Adon... barely knew Cammy, which was a shame. He knew she was Shadaloo. He knew she was a doll. Unlike M. Bison, though, she wasn't very loud. And she had breasts, which immediately made her less of a threat to Adon's eyes. And Adon only cared about the Dolls as far as 'keeping them off his lawn.' Cammy, he knew, was the big sister of the mysterious group. Probably like a den mother. Leaning back, he just waits there, lazily eyeing his partner smashing into the blond girl with the Liquid Snake accent. "I'm not WITH the SYNDICATE GIRL... CAMMY!!!" Adon states in a bored tone, revealing the doll's TRUE NAME. As the woman comes shooting towards him, Adon just lazily brings his left arm up to catch it. "Really, you wish to ANNOY the J-"


Gripping his jaw, he turns his face away from the blow. Cammy landed true. But then, he grins again. That broad, toothy smile. doesn't even bother turning back to look at Cammy. He just steps in, arms outstreched for the doll. "You should have FOCUSED on the GIRL, CAMMY." The Emperor seethes. "But NO. You had to INSULT..." Adon attempts to grip the girl by any surface point, and drag her into him. He would then smash the base of his palm right across his brainpan, and hurl her back against the wall behind him.

"Mm," Cammy says in calm reply to Adon's loud admonishment, showcasing a frankly amazing vertical leap as she jumps clear of Adon's grasp, kicking off the ceiling and handspringing when she reaches the floor. "Well, you've certainly shown me, haven't you, Your Highness."

It's then that Shihong comes into Cammy's airspace. Cammy immediately flips down and /launches/ upward, Psycho Power flaring electric blue around her as the Killer Bee uses her outstretched foot as if it were a sword -- "CANNON SPIKE!" Still, in the process, Shihong does indeed connect with the small of Cammy's backside, and as the Shadaloo warrior rolls back to her feet, she touches what will soon be a purple bruise on one bared cheek of her bottom. "I knew you Southtown operators didn't have any class," Cammy says, emotionlessly.

So far so good, Shihong privately muses. Adon isn't attacking HER, so obviously his beef lies with the Zero Doll, for whatever reason or another. That means that, for now, it's a two versus one--how long that will last, Shihong can't be certain. But if she can get 'help' from the Emperor of Muay Thai, all the better. May as well make the best of the situation.

Unfortunately, Adon doesn't manage to keep the attentions of Cammy--not enough to keep the Doll's sights off of the Syndicate woman. Just as her heel meets its mark on the girl, the Doll lashes out, leg afire with blue and too familiar energy that sends a sharp, lancing pain through her body. It knocks her back, the woman hitting the ground with a heavy thud before she exhales.

"I have plenty of class," she offers, rising to her feet once more while absently rubbing at the point of impact on her chest. "You Shadaloo and NESTS savages are just too brainwashed or scientifically tweaked up to notice it."

Sparing a glance toward Adon, the woman's features tighten a bit. "Are you going to take this from a girl that's probably half your age, mister 'Emperor of Muay Thai?'" she wonders. Kicking off her heels shortly thereafter, she charges relentlessly once more, legs suddenly ablaze with vermillion red energy--Psycho Power. Closing in on Cammy, she attempts to drop low and shoot both fiery legs out, heels aimed to slam into Cammy before she swings both upwards, one after the other to clip the girl harshly and knock her back as Shihong comes to rise in a graceful handstand before, presumably, kicking her legs down to stand properly upright once more.

Oh, Cammy gets snarky with Adon. Fortunately for Shihong, this secured her from an immediate beatdown straight from the Jaguar's mouth. As Cammy deftly slips from his grips in an agile bound, the Emperor grits his teeth, bemused by the agility of his prey. Secretly, he was furious at being spited. But his smile remains. "Get BACK HERE, CAMMY. Adon snarls, fixing his balance. Cammy seems to spend her turn messing Shihong up.

No matter.

As she gives Shihong a foot spank, he is already hustling over to the fast fighter's position. "Shut UP! I KNOW what I am DOING!" The jaguar snaps at Shihong as he swung a single leg high and around. He saw Shihong was going for some flashy techniques. Adon decided to hold back a bit. With his straight kick going square for Cammy's flank, he tried to poke through in tandem with the Geese Girl.

Cammy is, to put it succinctly, pummeled. The lithe form of the young assassin is knocked into the air by Shihong's Psycho Powered slide kick, and like a human tee-ball, smashed clear out of the air by a blast to the kidneys courtesy of Adon. She lands on an overturned desk, bouncing rudely before sprawling on the floor. The blonde Killer Bee looks down -- nasty gash on the thigh, but no arteries severed. Luckily, she's got a moment of cover and tons of medical supplies littered on the floor.

Within moments, Cammy springs back up -- tourniquet tied 'round her wound, and an OxyContin or two to keep her focused. "Right, then," she says, eyes clear with anger.

Cammy lunges forward, attempting to sidestep Shihong and, while circling her, grip the other woman tight around the waist. With no snappy patter this time, Cammy focuses entirely on the task at hand -- attempting to bridge into a suplex that will drop Shihong directly on her skull.

In joint effort Cammy is double-teamed into the nearest desk before she lands in a heap, the very sight enough to make the woman feel just a little better about herself in the midst of all this. If she had it her way, she'd do this by herself, without inside, non-Syndicate help. But...well, she's no fool. The girl is a lot stronger than she outwardly appears...

Soon enough, however, the Doll is back onto her feet, wound freshly bandaged. Frowning a bit, the woman's red eyes hood just a fraction, watching as closely as possible. Is she going to go after Shihong, or will she turn her attentions back onto Adon?

Clearly, she has eyes for Shihong Mao.

Try though she may to spin around and attempt to slap the girl's arms away, Cammy is faster; gripped by the torso, the woman is lifted up before she's slammed into the ground on her skull, the force of impact so great the linoleum floor of the infirmary indents, a small crater haloing around Shihong's skull. For a solid minute or two, the woman remains quiet and still.

"Fuuuck that smarts," she groans shortly after, slowly peeling her head off the ground and stumbling back onto her feet. Fixing her gaze on the Zero Doll, her red depths flare a bit, growing intense as she just studies the girl carefully. She won't act out again--not just yet. She needs the right, most opportune moment.

Adon howls as Cammy is launched into the desk with a single Muay Thai kick. Shihong is a big help, for sure. But would Adon notice? Of course not. Adon stands there, arms crossed, chuckling to himself as he shakes his head. "COME ON, CAMMY. As a MEMBER of SHADALOO I would expect you to FIGHT like a GIRL!" But then, Cammy takes some Oxycontin. Adon is slightly taken aback.

Since when was Cammy like Rush Limbagh?

Worse yet, she immediately lunges for him. Oh wait. Just Shihong. Adon just stands there, still grinning as Cammy catches Shihong and simply mangles her. And Shihong is down. "PEH! Those SYNDICATE girls. Geese should THROW his MONEY at some of THAILAND'S FINEST WHORES if he WANTS a woman that can FIGHT better than THESE IDIOTS." A twinkle form in his eye, he lowers himself down as he uncrosses his arms. Lightly touching the ground, he coos. "Maybe even YOU can LEARN a FEW LESSONS from THEM!"

Adon cackles again as he bounds up in the air. "YAAAAA!" He begins, flipping himself over. Well, now he was alone. As his feet reach an apex above his head, he winds his entire body up in a single heel drop. Energy burning across his foot, he attempts to catch Cammy with a blend of power and speed. To pounce on her, and drive his heel right into her collar bone.

Cammy's collar bone breaks -- there's no mistaking it. It only takes a couple pounds of pressure -- and it's safe to say that Adon used, well, a lot more than a couple when that kick sinks into her shoulder. "Ugh!" the Killer Bee snaps, landing on the ground. She bleeds from the mouth a little bit, and twitches on the ground.

But then -- Cammy gets up! That is the true advantage to taking painkillers during a fight, as it turns out. Ignoring the fact that a broken collarbone left to float around under its own supervision may well end up causing a fatal anatomical mishap, the Zero Doll surges toward Adon, leaping and attempting to sail /over him/ -- to land with her arm wrapped around his neck in a stranglehold.

Shaking off the last of the dull ringing in her head, Shihong's gaze seems firmly affixed upon the Zero Doll. She's taken quite a beating--more than Shihong has--and still seems to function easily enough. Clearly the girl is strong; then again, she's a Shadaloo monstrosity, isn't she? A paper-thin smile slowly creeps its way across the Syndicate woman's lips.

...and promptly drops as Adon addresses her to the girl.

Gritting her teeth behind her thin red lips, the woman's patience grows weary as the Muay Thai fighter rambles on. If she weren't dedicated to her mission here, she'd likely just seize the opportunity to deliver a kick straight to his JAGGA BALLS. Oh, how therapeutic that would be...

"Howard is a real classy guy, and I'm certain he doesn't like to molest small shemale boys. That's about all Thailand is good for these days anyway," she calmly replies, her red gaze hooded before she simply smirks. Fixing her attentions back onto Cammy, the woman widens her stance and lifts her arms, stretching them out before her. Breathing slowly, she focuses. At the tips of her fingers red energy ignites, flames growing more intense and stronger as the Psycho Power swells. Collecting it before her, she lets it well up before she snaps one arm gracefully upwards, a trail of fire following her arm, before thrusting it forward. All the collective energy roars forward, an angry gout of pure energy that launches itself forward like some angry serpent.

Adon brings his arms up, bracing himself against the diving Cammy. Her speed was impressive, though her dramatic technique did buy some time for a trained martial artist. Like the Emperor of Muay Thai. However, he was quite distracted by what Shihong had said. Or rather, what she had done.

"How DARE you INSULT the NATION of MUAY THAI." The Emperor seethes as he struggle against the stranglehold. Allowing his arms take the brunt of the struggle, he shoves Cammy off. But he doesn't follow through. No. As Shihong prepares to unleash her wave of energy, the Jaguar is already dashing along the ground. Unlike her, his mission was fairly vague. Just help the YFCC. As far as Adon knew, she wasn't YFCC. As such.

Her ass was his.

Sweep up on Shihong's left flank, Adon doesn't waste time. He simply fires off both of his fists at once, aiming to strike them both into the chest and face of the Syndicate Agent. Yes, she wasn't the biggest threat here. But she insulted Thailand. And for that, she would pay.

Critical hit indeed! Cammy is bowled over -- she barely had time to get knocked away from Adon before she was sent right back up onto the air, landing with a /thunk/ on the hood of the ice cream truck. Coughing up another gob of sticky, dark blood, Cammy groans, gazing over her shoulder... rather than, say, the glazed look one gets from a concussion, though, her stare is more icy and murderous than ever. "Must -- complete -- mission," she coughs, weakly, if only to reaffirm to herself the decision to stay in the fight.

And then, suddenly, she's not there anymore.

Cammy moves with the speed and sting of a gale-force blizzard, rebounding off of walls, kicking forward -- toward Adon. It's a frenzy of activity, rebounding from wall to wall, each time coming back toward the center with a nasty strike -- culminating in an attempt to grab Adon, hurl him toward the ceiling, and then violently stomp him into the ground.

Exhaling deeply as the fiery burst flies from her fingertips, the woman is barely paying attention to Adon. But when he roars of his nation and defends its pride, the woman can't help but stifle a laugh, red eyes slowly glancing aside toward the fighter. "Really now? /Really?/" Straightening her back just a bit, she only spares a cursory eye toward Cammy as she groans and pulls her body off the ice cream truck hood. Something seems wrong here...

When she looks back, Adon is trying to punch her with both fists. Her response comes swiftly; snapping both arms outwards, she catches one fist in one hand, and the other in her other hand. The impact draws a slight grunt from the Syndicate woman.

"You know what?" she remarks, "Screw Thailand. Shadaloo should have wiped that depraved country off the map. Oh, and hey. Look out." The warning has double-meaning.

Letting go of Adon's fists, the woman springs back, well out of the way before she smirks. She watches briefly, as Cammy makes her assault toward Adon. And when the time is right--

"This is for calling me a whore."

Shihong moves, a sudden jolt forward of her body as her legs ignite with energy. She takes to the air, attempting to deliver a sharp flying side kick straight into Adon. If it connects she'll use his chest as a springboard and flip back, landing in a crouch before she leaps up and delivers a flipping kick with an explosion of Psycho Power to launch Adon skyward. She'll pursue; leaping upwards, she snaps a fiery leg out, another flying side kick aimed at his chest that sends and lancing, explosive burst of vermillion through his body.

                 Adon             1|=======|=======

Some times, temper can make you do very dangerous things.

As his fists are deflected, Adon just chuckles. "Come ON! COME ON!" He snarls. And then he notices the flare up of energy. Great. She was going bitch-crazy on him. Adon's entire body tenses up as he tries to block. His attention was spreading wider and wider. He needed to focus. He needed to take in all her movements. As his awareness spread out... a new factor came in. Cammy. She was going for the kill as well.

Too much information. Adon tries to hold steady, bringing his arms close to try to block the tandem strike from both of the girls. But he can't hold up for long. Shihong breaks through his guard, launching him in the air. And up there, he is open game for Cammy. He tries to roll away from each of the swipes, but he can't. Even with his body tensed up, he knew it was over. He had failed.

All because of Urien.

Adon was playing a game, and he just lost. Now, as his rage boiled up to dictate one last blow, he considered the playing field. If he took down Cammy, Shihong would leave with her pretty little 'tude, and win. If he took down Shihong... then they both would be spited. Captured, or even killed. But to Adon, that was enough. That was the most important.

If he couldn't leave, she wouldn't.

Adon suddenly explodes through the vermillion, creased with a bright orange energy. "You. YOU." The Emperor broils as he stomps down on the ground. Blood running from the multiple crags that drew along his face, Adon wasn't even looking at Shihong as he just started punching. His arms were a blur as he just kept hammering his fists forward. But the Jaguar was marching forward, marching his energy-laced strikes into the Syndicate Agent. He was going to drive her against the wall of the infirmary. But he wouldn't stop there. He would just smash her against that wall, bringing forward knee smashes, leg smashes, elbow smashes. He would just keep bringing everything that was part of Muay Thai... until he can't any more. Already, his vision was fading, and soon...

COMBATSYS: Adon can no longer fight.

That takes care of /that/, Cammy thinks, settling back to her feet, albeit with a bit of a wobbly stance. She's losing blood, and she's got at least one noticeable broken bone -- painkillers help, but they don't help /that/ much, and the Killer Bee's body can only handle so much before beginning to shut down -- a process which is currently beginning negotations with her brain.

"Just you and me," she says to Shihong when Adon collapses -- whether he's managed to land the blows or not. Cammy prowls around the edges of the room, waiting for an opening... and then, with a shocking suddenness, launches herself at Shihong, feet first, in a frenzy of Psycho Power! "SPIRAL ARROW!"

Pushing off of Adon, Shihong uses his body as a springboard of sorts, letting her form fall before she lands in a low crouch, shoulders immediately sagging. She's exerted herself far too much this fight when really, with Adon's 'help' things should have gone a lot quicker than anticipated. The Doll has proven herself quite a handful, and now that she's gotten the Muay Thai fighter's attention with her treachery--

He appears like a shot, chasing after the woman to her surprise. She rises instantly before she spins out of harm's way, Adon's fists narrowly missing her body by a fraction, so close the fabric of her black blazer frays from the force of his assault. Frowning just a bit, the woman pivots sharply once more before she glances back to the now-felled Adon and snorts lightly. When Cammy speaks, she looks away from the man.

"Well, it would seem that way."

Glancing back to the Zero Doll, Shihong offers a thin smile. She doesn't expect the Shadaloo assassin to go lightly on her--she doesn't seem the sort of girl. Thus do her legs tense as she slides into a wary stance, observing the girl. And when she bolts forward, those arms snap up, afire with Psycho Power, to combat the incoming strike of energy with her own as she spins her body, letting the strike glide past.

Lashing out with one arm, Shihong attempts to seize Cammy by the wrist and lock it once she's regained her footing. Without hesitating she'll attempt to scale the girl, stomping her sharp stiletto heels into her front three times before she twists her body and pushes up. Overhead the Doll, she'll SLAM her heels downward into her backside, the motion coupled with a shocking burst of psychic energy, attempting to shove the girl face-first into the infirmary floor.

As Cammy's wrist is seized, the Doll rotates her arm, gaining enough leverage in the process to snap her limb free of Shihong's grasp and step back. It's as Cammy steps back that she realizes what a problem this arm will be -- the motion of breaking Shihong's grip supremely agitates her broken collarbone, and she grimaces, unable to hide the intense discomfort of it. Still, to her credit, she pushes on regardless.

Cammy squints at Shihong -- and then leaps off to the side, using the wall as a springboard. She kicks off of it with the tremendous speed she's known for, and attempts to somersault in mid-air -- to land on Shihong's shoulders, squeezing the Syndicate fighter's head between her thighs. Throwing herself backwards shoulders-first, Cammy attempts to flip Shihong with it, in a speedy hurricanrana!

With a soft 'tch' as the girl wrenches her arm out of grasp, the Syndicate woman finds herself in quite a predicament. This girl is still moving too damn fast for someone as beat up and busted as she is, while Shihong finds herself slowly but surely wearing out. It brings a sour frown to the Chinese woman's lips. This is going downhill fast.

And her thoughts are only assured as the Doll springboards off a wall and lands on her shoulders, despite her attempts to wrench her off. Squeezed, she's thrown through the air with Cammy attached before smacked painfully into the floor. A loud grunt escapes the woman's lips. Consciousness is fleeting--she can feel it. But surely after that little display the girl has to be prone...or at least worn the hell out.

Hissing slightly beneath her breath, Shihong twists her body and rolls up, scrambling as quickly as possible to stand on her feet before she pushes herself forward once more. Her intent is clear: she's going to attack. And again she lets her legs ignite with psychic flames, rushing the girl as she attempts to again drop low and snap her legs out before swinging them upwards, to kick her in the chin with one foot after another, to rise in a handstand once more. A sloppy, tired one.

"Just PASS OUT already!!"

Cammy is smashed so hard in the kneecaps you might almost swear her legs bend the wrong way for a second.

The Killer Bee is hurtled by the impact, sent looping through the air of the room until her head smashes into the outstretched passenger-side mirror of the omnipresent ice cream truck, an impact that not only changes Cammy's direction mid-air, but also causes the mirror fixture itself to break off of the truck completely.

On the ground, bleeding and bruised, Cammy twitches a few times, but then gives in, unable to continue. Mission: failed.

Recovering from the handstand by dropping her legs back, Shihong doesn't bother trying to stand up; instead, her knees touch down as she sits there, hands supporting the majority of her weight. She takes a moment to breathe as Cammy sails, hitting the truck with a loud, audible THUD before she lays on the ground, unconscious and--finally--not so lethal. To be sure, the Syndicate woman looks back for a minute, watching.

And when the girl doesn't seem a threat, slowly does Shihong rise to her feet. Wobbling a bit, she shakily reaches into the pocket of her blazer. Withdrawing a small cellular, she slowly and cautiously paces toward the hole of the infirmary, to reenter the streets.

"Yes, it's me," the woman speaks quietly. "Infirmary is secure. That Shadaloo girl and...whoever Adon is are neutralized. Send reinforcements if possible. I'm in no damn shape whatsoever to secure this by myself."

Then, after, she clicks the phone shut and leans on a damn wall to just /rest/.

COMBATSYS: Shihong has ended the fight here.
