Neo League 826 - #845: Maki vs Vyle

Description: In the city shaped like a boot, two fighters attempt to give each other the boot!

Ahhh....lovely Venice, Italy. All too well known for its canals, gondolas, and a city of romantic fantasies. It's not a place for those afraid of the water.

Oddly enough, though, for a city with a history of water, both the canals and historic naval importance, the action tonight doesn't hang around those infamous canals...but rather one of the more famous urban centers in Europe, the Piazza San Marco. In front of it's famous bell tower, St Mark's Campanile, a crowd has gathered around. Why? Why...for a fight, of course! Not just an impromptu fight though. This is serious business. This is League business, as shown by the camera crews and quick sound stage set up for announcing the fight.

And in the center of the crowd....

o/` GET READY FOR THE RIDE, WHERE NO ONE ELSE HAS BEEN. CHECK THE CODE LOCKS AND STRAP YOURSELF IN... o/` Having long made his entrance, Vyle smirks, hearing his theme play as he continues to goad the crowd, taking in the local crude gestures and exchanging them in return to the crowd. Don't mind him, he does this every where he goes...

Meanwhile, a very well known and active fighter on the Neo League circuit is making her entrance, albeit in a casual manner as opposed to Vyle's entrance. It's the blonde and beautiful (but dangerous if you make her mad!) Maki Genryusai. She's got her share of fans greeting her, whom she replies to with a smile and an occasional handshake. A visit to Italy has never been so much fun for those who are vacationing here, and those who live here are going to be in for a real treat today.

Recently, she took on Chang Koehan, a big brute who went down hard during their first encounter, but this time the giant-KO'er found herself being KO'ed. Fortunately, Maki's not one to let her defeat slow her down. Having been practicing her dodging skills and some of her throwing techniques, while letting her injuries heal, Maki's back and better than ever!

As she makes her way to the center of the crowd, Maki frowns a little at Vyle, apparently recognizing him a little. Then it hits her, he was banned from wrestling a long time ago. Almost immediately, Maki scowls a little. "You can try whatever techniques you want on me, but I'm warning you, I'm not going down that easily, unlike your fake opponents that you always used to take on!" With that, Maki jumps up and down a few times to get the blood flowing, then gets into her fighting stance and shakes her tonfa at Vyle as if to say, "Bring it on!"

Fans....bah. Who needs them....Vyle didn't need them...he didn't want them, and rarely got them. That's life as a heel, after all. So when he watches Maki socializing with a few of her fans, he snorts, shaking his head and slowly walking into the middle of the designated fighting area. "So...lessee....way you're dressed, things you're carrying in your think after you're done massaging me, I could get the 'happy ending'?" Vyle snaps, smirking.

Yep, never one to miss a chance to taunt and get under his opponent's skin. "I wouldn't be talking much about 'fake', babe, from the looks of it, you need a little fake up..." He finishes his sentence, gesturing around the chest area. A last little jab before the signal to start is sounded, prompting Vyle to charge in immediately for a grab around Maki's waist. If he can get her? A big lift up, and a hard slam down onto her spine. Odd power move from the luchador, but he likes making good first impressions.

"A little fake up? Give me a break," Maki replies with a shake of her head. Apparently, she's not liking this guy too much, and she's not gonna give him a massage, not in the least bit. In fact, the only thing she's gonna give him is a real (excuse the pun) smackdown! Metro City style, that is!

Vyle had also better take note that Maki is quick on her feet, and that you can't exactly throw what you can't get your hands on. When those filthy hands come at Maki's waist, the blonde-haired ninja immediately drops to the ground, doing a backwards somersault on the ground to avoid being caught. As soon as she's back on her feet, Maki wastes no time in following up with a swift kick to the face, hoping to leave an imprint of the sole of her sneaker.

Vyle tches. The ninja is fast, he has to give her that. But Vyle's no major slouch in the speed department either. "Seriously, toots, you could probably use it, unless you really aren't trying to dress like you wanna lure in a few johns," he taunts again, slouching down in preparation. When the kick flings out, Vyle's hands comes up, taking the kick and knocking it aside before he gets an imprint of her sneaker treds on his face.

"And to that, I'd have to say..." But...he doesn't say anything. Instead, he pauses, almost like he was about to retch. That is, until a sudden burst of green mist sprays out from his mouth, the noxious cloud of his patented 'Venom' spat out toward Maki's face. And if Maki's not careful, she'll definitely find out that the venom stings...especially in the eyes.

"Don't you DARE call me toots!" Maki shouts angrily as she pulls back from having her kick blocked. "It's names like that which REALLY aggravate me!" Naturally, it's not gonna matter too much, though, since this guy wants to fight, not listen to what Maki likes and dislikes. And knowing Vyle, he's gonna use whatever trick in the book he can use to achieve victory. Even that cloud of venom that he's spraying at Maki.

Not wanting to risk being blinded, Maki holds her arms up and attempts to protect her face from it. The breath does get on her arms, and it does sting, but not as badly as it could've stung. Nonetheless, Maki's not too happy about what Vyle just called her, and she plans to prove that point by slamming the shorter end of her tonfa into his gut.

COMBATSYS: Maki successfully hits Vyle with Medium Strike.

Maki's angry? Good, Vyle's done his job. Taunts are meant to get under the opponent's skin like that, it makes it easier for Vyle to do what he does best, and that's 'be a bastard'. Sadly, the mist doesn't quite do what he hoped it'd do, guarded and only stinging on Maki's arms. Snorting, Vyle backpedals a bit.

Sadly, his attempt to backstep is cut off by the sudden jab of Maki's tonfa into his gut, causing him to double over painfully. "NGhhhh...." Grunting and lurching over, he glowers up to the ninja. "Toots...I have so many worse names I could give you, it's not funny. Wait, yeah it is." Arm snaking out, he tries to snag onto Maki's own Tonfa bearing arm, meaning to tug and chuck the ninja over in a good ol' fashioned arm whip throw.

"The only thing funny here," Maki replies sarcastically, "Is you and your fighting style!" And trying to grab Maki's tonfa arm will turn out to be fruitless, as she's already pulled it away as Vyle attempts to grab it. Taking a few steps back just as a precaution, Maki tsks and shakes her head at the failed attempt. "That's not the way you do it."

Without waiting for a response, Maki suddenly moves like lightning, dropping onto the tip of her tonfa(!) and then spinning around swiftly like a human whirlwind. Let's see what Vyle has to say about THIS!

Vyle grits his teeth. He was getting annoyed now. WIth Maki pulling away before he can do anything, he narrows his eyes, and when she plants herself and spins about, he's got his arms and a leg up to stop the spin kick before it can do too much. Even then though, the damage is pretty mean.

"Nhhh...oh, you just gone and done it now, toots. Here I was..nnh...trying to be as nice as I could be...but now I have to really get serious on you." Jumping up into the air, Vyle aims himself down at the red-clad Ninja...and stomps, both feet pumping down at Maki's head and shoulders to drive her into the ground with his heels. AT least, that's his aim...

Vyle             0/-------/--=====|==-----\-------\0             Maki

Even if Maki can't get out of the way of an incoming attack, she still knows how to protect herself against an incoming enemy attack. And one of those ways is to get into the best defensive stance you can, while preparing yourself to absorb the impact of the incoming attack. And when those boots come at Maki, she's ready to absorb the blow.

She skids backwards a little bit, but is none the worse for the wear. Still, this guy seems to have a lot of tricks up his sleeve, so rather than make another move, Maki simply stands by, keeping a close eye on him.

COMBATSYS: Maki focuses on her next action.

Vyle tches as Maki manages to get her guard up on his stomps, Vyle forced to push off from her block and land on his feet. He sneers, realizing just how solid his opponent really is. This could be a problem. "Nnnn....well, I guess you're not all T&A, huh...well...not so much on the T, but..." he nearly compliments. Nearly.

Glowering as he sees her hanging back, he decides to push the offensive, not wanting to get her too settled in. Charging in, he reaches an arm up, as if going to grab her high...before trying to yank her legs out from under her low and lay a few fists into her from the mount.

Vyle             0/-------/-======|====---\-------\0             Maki

That's it, come on and get Maki. That's what she wants you to do. When Vyle gets close enough, though, he's gonna be in for a very nasty surprise. For you see, as soon as he grabs Maki's legs (and she feels the pain, no less,) her plan literally kicks into action.

With a shout, Maki suddenly breaks free and flies directly into Vyle with a swift flying kick, striking him directly in the chest and sending him flying across the area. Maki herself lands in a somewhat awkward position, hurting herself a little. But compared to what Vyle felt, it could be worse.

Vyle kew it was coming too. He knew she was trying something big on him. Unfortunately, his decision to 'strike before struck' does him little good. His speed just didnt' seem enough to counteract Maki's plans, and when he trips her up by the legs, he ends up eating the worst of it, kicked straight in the chest and skitting across the Piazza grounds. "HHhgnnn...." Grunting painfully as he catches his slide, he winces and pushes himself onto a knee. "You....little..." he mutters, wincing as he hangs back to catch a breath or two, apparently. He knows there's a hole somewhere in her game that he can exploit....but where...

COMBATSYS: Vyle gains composure.

Vyle             0/-------/--=====|====---\-------\0             Maki

Taking a breather, are you Vyle? Maki thinks that's a great idea, but she's not exactly in need of a rest right now. In fact, she's got plenty of strength within her, and is finding Vyle to be quite the least of a challenge to her. Shaking her head, Maki says, "I thought you'd be more of a challenge to me, but I guess I was wrong." And then, as if attempting to rub it in, Maki closes her eyes and begins to focus on gathering her fighting spirit more.

COMBATSYS: Maki gathers her will.

Vyle             0/-------/--=====|=======\-------\1             Maki

Now that's annoying to him. Being dismissed like that is definitely something that sets off one of Vyle's buttons, and it shows in the narrowing eyes of the rudo. "Oh....really now....toots, I'm just getting #*&*ing started..." he insists, narrowing his eyes further and slowly slithering forward, stance set even lower as he approaches...and stops a good 7 yards or so away. "C'mon....if I'm so little of a challenge, why don't you come and get me...come and get me you little tart, I'm waiting..." he sneers, circling her like a predator.

"What did I tell you about calling me that word?!" Maki shouts as her eyes open once again. "You must obviously want to have your ass kicked by me! Imagine the humiliation of that," Maki says without the slightest hint of a smirk.

And humiliation is what Maki has in mind as she rushes in and attempts to deliver a swift combination technique where she'll first attempt to strike Vyle with her tonfa in a way that he doubles over, then grab him and kick him in the stomach, and then finally throw him onto the ground.

COMBATSYS: Vyle fails to counter Armed Combo from Maki with Antidote.

Vyle             1/------=/=======|=======\=------\1             Maki

Well...the plan seemed to go off better in his head. Goad her further, lure him into his range, and then hit her with a throw she'd never see coming. It was Vyle's saving grace of a plan, and it seemed to start off so well. And when Maki charges in, he's ready, watching the tonfa come in and trying to sneak in to grab her mid-strike.

He...just wasn't quite counting on her speed. Underestimating her charge in, Vyle finds himself too slow to grab her, and thus gets doubled over with the tonfa strike, kicked in the stomach...and then slammed painfully into the ground in a way that almost seems to make him cough up a lung. "GHHahaahhhhhhhghhh....

And the plan seemed to go so well, too....

"Tsk tsk tsk, you're just not giving it you're all," Maki says as she watches Vyle fall to the ground. "I told you that you'd regret calling me those feminist names, and you just didn't listen." Maki shakes her head while still scowling. "I'm willing to offer you another chance if you'd like..." But Maki obviously knows he ain't gonna do anything good, so she waits to see what he has next.

Oh, Vyle's definitely not about to give in like that. No sir. He may be obviously losing here, but he's not about to give in like some kind of sucker here either. Teeth gritted, he pulls himself back up from the ground, eyes still hard and definitely pissed. Whether it's from frustration, hatred, anger, or just because he's naturally irritable, he's staring daggers...

And he doesn't even waste time with another taunt, quickly flying in low to try and clip at Maki's legs with a shooting arm grab at her ankle and fling over.

Unfortunately, Maki's not always going to be able to keep up with her opponents, and this is one of those times where she finds herself being tossed over Vyle's head, despite her best efforts to defend herself. She lands on the ground with a loud, "OOMPH!"

Apparently, Maki mistimed it that time, but what's to say she's going to mistime her next attempt on Vyle. "You got me there good, but the fight's still going, and I'm not about to let you beat me that easily." With that, Maki jumps into the air and attempts to grab Vyle by the shoulders. If successful, Maki would flip herself over and then throw Vyle to the ground!

Vyle             0/-------/------=|=======\=====--\1             Maki

Unfortunately, things don't exactly go Maki's way...

Persistance is a virtue. It's quite possibly the only virtue that Vyle has an holds dear. With his position of weakness still, despite getting the good, surprise flip on Maki, the luchador quickly turns around in his low, snake-like stance as Maki pulls herself up. And when she leaps into the air.....

Paydirt. Just what Vyle was looking for.

Snapping around, hands planted, he spins one leg up high, cracking the heel of his boot right into Maki's face to force her back up into the air. Pushing off the ground, he follows her upward, grasping for her shoulder and a leg and tilting her until he can drop her into a vicious Northern Lights Bomb, headfirst. The throw causes gasps in the crowd, not only for the damage it leaves...but for the fact that it seems to leave Vyle in a sprawled state as well, the move taking quite a lot out of him.

After Maki's attempt to strike Vyle backfires on her, it seems that her opponent has the upper hand on her. But you should never count Maki out, no matter how difficult things may have gotten for her.

After landing on the ground rather hard, Maki forces herself to stand up, now bruised and with a slightly bloody nose. Her injuries are starting to show, but she's had worse in Metro City. "You did pretty well, there, but let's see just how well you can handle against... THIS!" And with the last word, Maki rushes at Vyle, attempting to deliver a flurry of attacks that will definitely hurt if they land!

Vyle             1/-------/=======|=------\-------\0             Maki

Sadly, seems that Vyle is about spent. As he tries to pull himself up from the ground, after his last ditch attempt to even the odds, he looks up...and gets met with a barrage of tonfa, kicks, punches, and...well, whatever Maki can throw at him. And as expended as he is, the luchador just doens't have anything left to avoid it, taking it on the chin, amongst other places.

And when it's finished, he's...still standing? Well, maybe, but he looks dead on his feet. Dead enough that when he falls forward, it looks mostly like the last gasp of a beaten man. "...*#&$ you..." he says in a quiet, fatigued voice as he falls over...and overrotates, trying to give her a last clip of his heel in the face. Last gasp of a dying man, right?

COMBATSYS: Vyle has reached second wind!

Looks like Maki's got the upper hand now as her barrage finalizes against Vyle. But then he tries to get her in the face, apparently a last-ditch effort at taking her down with him. Fortunately, with such little power, it's easy to avoid the incoming kick. However, Maki senses that Vyle's not done just yet, and waits with anticipation...

Indeed, it seems like Vyle just won't go down, the flipping kick only serving to send him into a foward somersault. Maki's good senses keep her from eating a heel, but it's not over. Lurching forward out of his somersault, the wrestler tries to grab onto Maki around the head and neck, and simply leverage her down into a somewhat sloppy, hasty backbreaker.

"Looks like you're not giving up just yet, eh?" Maki says sarcastically as Vyle comes back after her. Unfortunately for Vyle, Maki's not in the mood to have her neck broken today, which means she won't be sticking around to let Vyle get his grubby hands on her. Instead, she jumps over him and then lands behind him. With this in mind, Maki decides to try a little grappling of her own. Attempting to grab from behind, Maki attempts to slam Vyle face-first into the ground.

While his attempt to leverage Maki down fails, the heel isn't about to give up yet, not after getting a second burst of life. Snorting as she leaps over him, he hastily turns around just as she tries to grab at him. While it cranks his neck a bit, he avoids getting slammed down onto his face, twisting out of her grasp.

"Lets say I have unfinished business. I still haven't got my happy ending, after all," he sneers, his hand glowing a dull green as he suddenly shoots his hand out and tries to stab her in the chest with that sickly looking knife-hand.

Vyle             1/-------/=======|==-----\-------\0             Maki

Somehow, that thing doesn't look too pleasant. And Maki isn't going to stick around to find out what it is. Instead, she's going to spin around like a whirlwind on her tonfa once again to give herself some breathing room. Or so she intends to do.

Instead, the attack gets her square in the chest, causing her to cry out as she staggers backwards, her body suddenly feeling kind of weird. Another one of Vyle's dirty tricks it seems.

"You're gonna really pay for that!" Maki says, narrowing her eyes. "Now I know why you were outlawed!"

Vyle manages an ugly smirk, a low chuckle as he backs off from Maki after his little surprise. "Heheheh....well, lets say I found a home elsewhere, so I'm not crying too much, toots..." he sneers, smirking as he backs off, both to catch his breath a little more...and perhaps goad her a little again. He's talking big, but it doesn't change how beaten up he was.

There he goes again, calling Maki 'toots.' This guy is either very arrogant or very dumb. Probably both. But either way, the more Vyle calls Maki that name, the more likely he's going to be eating pavement shortly. So he'd best watch out, since Maki's now pretty much run out of patience with him.

"You still haven't learned. Looks like I'm gonna have to teach you the HARD way!" Maki shouts as she jumps into the air, and then swiftly drops down suddenly, attempting to stop her foot into Vyle's head.

Sadly, it seems the end of the line for Vyle, as he finds himself unable to pull back enough to avoid the sudden foot stomp that comes down, like an echo of his earlier attack. "Nghhh...." With his last legs taken out, he makes one last stumble forward and lurch outward, reaching for Maki in a semblance of a jump to grab her head, turn, and drop her into a DDT. Last ditch, but anything to go out with a bang and make her remember him, dammit.

A very valiant final attempt on Vyle's part, but no good. Maki simply jumps out of the way while Vyle goes down for the count. Or should that be down and out. As Vyle definitely isn't going to be getting back up this time. The officials stop the fight and declare Maki the winner. A lot of cheering, but some booing also. Such is life on the fighting circuit.

"Next time, try learning some manners before you fight me again," Maki says to her opponent before she heads off.'
