LLK Act I.War - War : Along Came a Spider

Description: Spider's caught in the thick of things when the SouthSynd boys catch him sleeping and try to run him down. He finds some unlikely help in the visiting Heavy D!...who decides to turn around and try and clean him up out of the Village as well.

Late at night in Southtown Village, the invading army is afoot. The Spider drives a sedan through the neighborhood, carrying a trunk full of ammunition. He frowns as he drives, the window cracked and a cigarette in his mouth. He's presently looking for any danger, but growing somewhat lax due to the hour.

It's not exactly a safe time to be out and about these days in the city. Being out this late is even worse. The people about trying to keep things on lockdown are proof enough of that. However, that doesn't mean some brave souls aren't out. One of those happens to be one Heavy D!, the boxer frowning as he looks out in the village from the front of the Gorin Apts. compound. He....really doesn't like what he's seeing here...and considering his former partner Roberto was generous enough to give him a place to stay while he looked for a particular person in this chaos...well, why not act as a bit of a guardian here, at least for the Apartments?

The Spider slows his car down as he approaches a burning barricade. As Southtown Syndicate people climb out of hiding and open fire, the Spider boots it in reverse, spinning about as he attempts to escape. However, behind him, is a car with people hanging out the sides with guns. He curses in Hebrew, ducking under the steering wheel to avoid gunfire.

Heavy D! turns his head as he suddenly hears gunfire down the streets. "...crap," he mutters, shaking his head. Way too much like home right now. He's tempted to investigate himself...but he wonders if he should keep at the apartment and make sure nothing of that crap gets near here. "Man...."

The Spider opens the door to his car, and climbs out, holding a Desert Eagle in his hand. Israeli steel. He returns fire on the car and the other hoods as he strafes through the streets, heading in the direction of the Gorin Apartments.

....man, it's getting closer, isn't it? Damn. Looks like D! might have to get involved anyhow. "What the hell is worth all this crap?" he asks himself as he cinches his jacket over him, idly wondering how much people really have to gain by making the whole city a warzone like this. He gives a glance back toward the complex, before he walks out, TOWARD the sound of gunfire. Perhaps if he stems off whatever the hell's coming this way, he can keep it from getting any closer.

But what about the guns? Screw that....D!'s from the slums, if he can't handle bullets...well, he'd have been dead by now.

The Spider spins around to face those pursuing him, squeezing off a trio of high-powered gunshots. Three thugs drop in return, and he turns around to continue running. One thug, meanwhile, is in the process of opening the Spider's car's trunk and grabbing the munitions inside.

Heavy D! goes into a slow jog, just a little faster than walking. It gives a bit more of an excuse for why he's out (but not much more). He hears three more gunshots...and a whole lot less fire afterwards. Well, that's one way to solve it, but damned if he's letting anyone who's involved in this, if they're not police or army at the least, get too far away if they're still coming this way.

Forget Desert Eagle. D!'s got a Magnum.

The Spider runs down the street, bullets bouncing off the ground all around him. He sees Heavy D!, and aims to run around him, firing one last shot behind him before devoting himself fully to fleeing. "Get the hell outta here!" he barks to D!.

Heavy D! frowns, watching a fairly average sized man with a closely shorn head, bearing a gun as he tries to run past the boxer. "What the hell do you think /you're/ doing here?" the boxer rather irritatedly asks, trying to keep in Spider's path while the man tries to retreat. "Get this crap away from where people are just trying to live and survive here."

The Spider stops, ducking gunshots. "Listen, either we run, or they kill both of us!" he spits, turning around and firing another pair of gunshots, two more goons flying off their feet as they're struck by the powerful pistol.

Heavy D! narrows his eyes at Spider as the man shoots off a couple more rounds, taking down some of the thugs still firing on them. He doesn't take cover himself...but instead swings one arm upward, as if uppercutting the air. "Hrrrrhhh!" A sudden explosive scattering of chi spreads out from his uppercutting arc, giving them some cover from the fire as it comes and buffetting the shots coming their way. "You better be bringing them away from the residentials," he warns before finally getting himself clear of the street itself. An eye still watches the gunman warily, however.

"That's suicidal!" he spits, before going running towards the apartments, hoping to find cover. The gunman break off their pursuit, having stolen the munitions. They flee into the night, with their ill-gotten goods.

Heavy D! himself finds what cover he can...before the gunman break off, seemingly satisfied with whatever they got despite the casualties they suffered. SHaking his head, he focuses on the fleeing Spider. "Hey! Come back here!" he shouts, running after the man with the DEagle. As far as he's concerned, the guy's just as dangerous and in need of being kicked out of here.

With the SouthSynd boys off of the Spider's tail, he looks at D!. "Listen, you get off my back! You better get off my tail or they'll come back for you!" He points his gun at D!, cocking his head. "Unless you /want/ a problem."

Keeping after Spider, the wedgehawked boxer, acting as a bit of an impromptu guardian of the neighborhood for now, frowns as he sees the DEagle pointed his way, cocked. Eyes set and focused, the boxer charges in faster, reaching out with his left quickly. His fist tightens just as it gets near the gun, trying to swiftly jab the weapon out of the short-haired gunman before a shot can ring out again.

COMBATSYS: HeavyD successfully hits Spider with Jab Punch.

The Spider's hand is struck, the gun flying out of it as his hand clenches up. "Urgh...Well, if you wanna die tonight..." He reaches out with his left hand for D!'s armpit, before twisting about and attempting to flip D! to the ground. "It can be arranged!

Heavy D! manages to get the gun knocked out and away from the gunman...unfortunately, when the man reaches out and shows that he's not exaactly reliant on the gun, that's where the problem comes. D! grunts, trying to make for a grab of his own in return, but it's too late, and he finds himself flipped over with a little bit of leverage, coming down onto his back with a grunt. "Nnghhh...."

The Spider lowers his arms, as D! hits the ground. His hands clench into loose fists as he watches the boxer, frowning. "Is that all you have?" he asks, narrowing his beedy brown eyes. "Because I can just execute you if you want."

COMBATSYS: Spider focuses on his next action.

HeavyD           0/-------/------=|===----\-------\0           Spider

Heavy D! snorts, getting up pretty quickly. THe throw wasn't bad, but it wasn't exactly debilitating either. He doesn't say anything, taking it as serious as he can as he slips into his usual boxer's stance. Without another word, he comes forward, whipping out a swift set of jabs followed up by a nasty looking short cross.

HeavyD           0/-------/-----==|====---\-------\0           Spider

The Spider dodges through the jabs, before throwing a counter punch at D!'s diaphram. "Not fast enough," he chides, as he crams his knuckles into the boxer's zyphoid process. He keeps his hands down, not bothering to raise his guard.

Hrm....this is a bit annoying here. D! manages to get himself only a smack to the gut instead. However, his abs are rock solid, and the punch, despite the well placement, manages to only get him to step back a little bit. "YOu don't have a boxer's punch, that's for sure," he insists, dropping down into his stance again. He takes the defensive this time, hanging back to get a sense of the (former) gunman this time...

COMBATSYS: HeavyD focuses on his next action.

HeavyD           0/-------/-----==|====---\-------\0           Spider

The Spider smirks at D!'s concept. "The art is in the aim." He lashes out with a fast kick, sweeping low and spinning about. He's aiming his foot at the side of D!'s ankle, hoping to cripple his stance.

D! had expected him to come in rather sharply, and was waiting for the opportunity. As soon as Spider sweeps in low with his kick, the boxer springs forward, trying to smash into him with a lunging punch straight to that dropped face.

Unfortunately, it seems that Spider is just a touch faster and manages to strike at his ankle before D! can go full extension on his punch. As a result, the boxer ends up tipped end over end by the kick. "Nhh..." He's up to his feet again soon, but it's obvious that he's a bit wary now.

The Spider grins viciously at D!'s inability to touch him. He rushes into close range, hissing, "I'm going to feel your bones break," grappling with him. After struggling for several moments, he lashes out with a headbutt.

Well, this is turning rather ridiculous. D! tries to brace up as Spider comes in...but unfortunately, the boxer ends up taken into the shed as he finds his unguarded head slammed into by Spider's own, the strike turning the boxer slightly woozy. That one hurt plenty...and it's one that hopefully will turn into a wakeup call for D!. "Nhhh..." He doesn't try and respond back verbally. He has to keep his own momentum, as he snaps out with a quick right hand, not wanting to give too much light for Spider to expose.

The Spider blocks the jab with a quick move of his arm, before he counters with a hand flying out with a slap at his face. If it strikes, he grips tight and shoves his thumb into D!'s eye. "This just isn't your day, buddy boy," he whispers in close quarters.

When the hand comes forward to try and slap at D!"s face, the boxer pushes inward to meet it, throwing off Spider's grip and thankfully avoiding what probably would have been a painful poke in the eye. Grunting, the boxer brings his left in, then out, trying to show the man just what a strike to the solar plexus should feel like.

The Spider gets punched right in the solar plexus, grunting as he crumples to the ground. He rests on his knee, wheezing and gasping for air as spittle drools out of his mouth. "Urgh..." he says, impressed by the boxer's power.

About time D! finally got into a good rhythm. Hitting Spider directly on target, the Metro Native backs up just enough to let Spider drop to the ground. Just enough, as when Spider drops to the ground, the boxer quickly reaches for his coat, trying to yank Spider up to his feet, then off them with a bit of a shake. "Just what the hell are you working for anyways?"

"None of your business," he mutters, resisting the shake to the ground and landing back on his knee. He narrows his eyes, before surging forward, with a spear tackle aimed at Heavy D!'s stomach. "You heroes just don't understand," he hisses.

COMBATSYS: HeavyD dodges Spider's Quick Throw.

Heavy D! loses his grip...but he thankfully has enough sense of mind to slip around as the other man rushes forward to try and tackle him straight in the stomach. "Considering what's going on in this damn town, it's already my business and everyone else's," he retorts back, trying to stop the man cold with a slam of his fist onto the street. THe result of which would be a rather impressive gout of chi exploding from where his fist hits, bursting straight toward Spider.

The Spider brings both his arms up, blocking Heavy D!'s swing. He returns with a quick grapple, before attempting to grab D! in a reverse headlock. If he gets his grip, he brings the blade of his hand down on Heavy D!'s spine, with a devastating strike.

COMBATSYS: HeavyD blocks Spider's Masechet.

D! manages to twist and writhe in that headlock, however, twisting just enough that the strike heads toward his side, rathter than his spine. From there, an elbow and a tightening of his abdominals manages to stem the possible lethality of the strike. "Nhhhhhnnn...." From this clinched position though, D!"s options are limited. The solution? A good old fashioned blow to the liver to work Spider over and get him to release the boxer.

The Spider pushes apart after the strike fails to hit the spine, as D! aims a punch at his liver. He twists aside as his fist lashes out, again digging his knuckles deep into the boxer's diaphram. "You're not bad," he says rather begrudgingly.

Heavy D! finds himself slammed into with another punch to his diaphram. While again not much, it's enough in his already fatigued state to bring him down low in a lurch. "Nhhh....." He's not about to give Spider any compliments himself, however, instead trying to whip out another super quick punch to push him back.

COMBATSYS: Spider blocks HeavyD's Jab Punch.

The Spider blocks the punch with another turn of his arm. "You just don't know when to quit, do you," he wheezes, rather out of it from all the damage he's taken from those furious fists. He swings his fist at D!'s throat, attempting to cut off his air.

COMBATSYS: HeavyD blocks Spider's Quick Punch.

Heavy D! doesn't apparently, but that's admirable in a boxer, isn't it? And he knows how to take a punch...more importantly, how to BLOCK one, as the punch for his throat is caught with an out turned fist and pushed away. Seeing his opening, D! comes in, close, trying to snap out another set of punches, alternating up his sides with bodyshots to the stomach, the ribs, a short hook to the chin, before finally trying to finish it with a hard straight cross to the face.

The Spider gets struck in the stomach several times, before D! works his upper body. Finally, the straight to the face. The Spider collapses onto the pavement, out like a light.

Heavy D! pulls back as he finally finishes Spider off, panting a little as he looks on and tries to catch his breath. Finally, he sighs, shaking his head. He wasn't trying to bust the man out cold...but he was in quite the fight, and it seems it couldn't be helped. Muttering, he slowly picks Spider up by the gruff of his coat, looking at him. "Just who the hell do you work for, anyways," he mutters, as if hoping he'll wake up to answer him.

COMBATSYS: HeavyD has ended the fight here.
