Neo League 851 - #857: Malin vs Kyoko

Description: By request of everyone's favorite sassy weapons prodigy Malin, Kyoko Minazuki faces off against her on the Devilish Nurse's home territory: Justice High! Will Malin's quick-footed and swift style outmatch Kyoko's hands-on arts? Will Pepsi finally beat Coke? Will Malin finally become a law-abiding student?! (Winner: Kyoko)

Justice High. One of the ones less directly destroyed in the terrible events that have rocked Southtown to its very core. Nevertheless, the air is still a grim one. Times are tough all over, and nowhere is that more evident than in the schools themselves. Morose pupils vaguely wandering from place to place. If they even bothered to turn up to classes at all! It is not a pleasant time to be a kid in Southtown.

One particular student seems to have completely ignored the Justice High dress code, so broken is Her spirit. Though... she doesn't /look/ terribly broken. Not at all, really. Instead, the young girl is grinning widely, and wandering around the halls of the school with a pair of cameramen behind her. "Yeah, look, my people are never wrong, alright? I challenged one of the teachers here when I saw her name on the signup sheet. You know. I figure, what'll get peoples blood pumping again like seeing a teacher get kicked in the teeth? Am I right or am I right?"

And... it's true. Malin /had/ issued a challenge to Kyoko. Of course, she had neglected to mention a time, or place, or really phrase it very well. Instead she'd just written a scrappy note saying 'gonna kick your butt, kay?' and stuck it in the teachers in-tray.

This could only end well.

Fortunately for Justice High, they had a bear to protect it.

...okay, so not a literal bear, but Raizo Imawano may as well be classified as one. It was with his efforts and those of students--as well as the occasional random fighter--within the city that Justice maintained its ground during the 'war.' And what about Kyoko Minazuki during it all? Well, she wasn't drunk (all the time), but she was certainly working behind the scenes to keep kids patched up and people in good health.

Now, with enemy forces finally GONE, Kyoko has had a chance to relax--and what better way to do that than join the Neo League and get in a few fights. And, hey, maybe it'd pick up some of the morale of the listless students and draw them back to school.

It took a bit of questioning and searching, but eventually Kyoko managed to track down Malin and her 'appointed' camera crew. Though the girl may not catch the Justice nurse, she certainly has no hesitations in getting the young thief's attention, starting with a loud:


Should Malin look, a note is thrust her direction--the note she left her.

"Did you write this? I'll have you KNOW I'm not going to have my butt kicked by some scrappy little girl who can't bother coming to school in her uniform! I know times are tough but honestly, uniforms are practically given away!" Giving the girl a scrutinizing glare, the nurse adds, "And why aren't you in class!?"

Malin comes up short. The girl stumbles to a halt, and looks, honestly, a little bemused. Looking from the note up to Kyoko, the young scamp even looks... momentarily sheepish.

It doesn't last long, though. Instead, she laughs, and tosses her head back. "Geeeeeez, teach!" She declares, raising a finger up in a 'nuh-uh' kind of way. "I -did- write that, but, I'm not in class because I don't go to school!"

It's said with the kind of casual amusement that is the bane of all teachers, everywhere. That youthful disdain for all things hard and work-related, let alone educational in value. As though Malin really cared about something like going to school or getting grades! Life is for living! She learned everything she needed to a long time ago!

"The name's Malin, alright?"

This, stated with a kind of seriousness that forces one to take note, as she shifts her back leg and, quite suddenly, there's a small knife flickering between her outstretched fingers.
"Best remember it, Teach! 'cuz I'm not here to take lessons, I'm here to give 'em! You ready? These guys are here to record Asskicking 101!"



She...doesn't go to school..?

The nurse's face blanches considerable in response, blue eyes wide as she just stares at the confident little hoodlum. One may as well assume that the girl offended her dead mother (she's not really dead) or something before kicking her cat (she doesn't own any pets) and throwing her homemade cake into a gutter (she doesn't cook). The expression lingers for a moment--

Before Kyoko thrusts a finger forward.

"I should have known! You used poor grammar on the note!" Kyoko accuses. "Gonna is an awful form! And 'kay'? Not at all professional or educated!" Frowning deeply, the woman crushes the note in her hand before she tosses it aside. A faculty member gasps. How dare she litter!

"Well, miss 'Malin,'" she replies, sounding more composed as a hand shifts her glasses up the bridge of her nose. "It looks like /I'm/ going to have to teach /you/ the importance of a healthy education. By all means, young lady," Looking up, the devilish nurse offers a confident, sly smile.

"Come at me."

Kyoko            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Malin

Malin just -grins-. It's such a carelessly arrogant expression, as though she couldn't care less what she's walking into. As though she already knows she's won. Malin had never actually spent a full day at school in her life, but, she understood the basic principles. Really. Education? She'd learned all the best lessons in life by herself! She didn't see the point in forcing others to stick around all day getting drilled with useless facts!

"Okay Teach!" She replies, easily. "Don't get your panties in a bunch, though. It's not -my- fault you are so stuck up you can't read how people really write, is it?"

For a moment she winks- wait? Just ... why would she wink? Is this an act for the cameras, or something?

Unfortunately, any real questioning along those lines is immediately thrown off as Malin is suddenly coming in at Kyoko, crossing the short distance between herself and the teacher with surprising speed, for a moment, it looks like she might actually just be looking to barge right into the teacher!

That illusion, however, does not last long. Instead, at the very final instant, Malin leaps into the air, and twists around, literally bouncing off the wall as she aims to draw that knife horizontally across Kyoko's front, zipping from one wall to the other with dizzying speed!

COMBATSYS: Kyoko blocks Malin's Medium Strike.

"What--!" Stunned briefly by the girl's accusations, Kyoko blinks with disbelief before she lets a distantly offended expression cross her face. But, rather than get angry, the woman reminds herself that she's a little uneducated delinquent that needs some guidance and 'reassurance' before she can be put on the right track.

"I'm impressed you can right at all," the woman explains with a demure smile. "It's quite impressive for someone who has never been to school! I assure you though, I am not stuck up. I am just interested in helping you reach your full potential as an educated member of society."

Well if Malin can wink to the camera, so too can Kyoko--and she does, offering a wink AND a blown kiss right at it as she adds, "That's right! An education is the keystone to a successful career and fulfilling life! That is what we strive to help our students achieve here at /Justice High/~!" Hooray, shameless promotions!

When the woman looks back, Malin is suddenly dashing right at her. Widening her eyes, the woman watches the girl's leap, wall-bound and--wait, is that a KNIFE?

Crossing her arms, the woman shields the blow on her sleeves, a cut left across her arms and drawing blood. Frowning deeply, the woman lets the girl land before she wags a finger. "How did you get that on school property!" she chides. "Don't you know that such weapons are forbidden on school grounds?"

To emphasize her disappointment in young Malin, the woman takes a lunging step forward and drops her upper body low, an arm sweeping out to strike the girl in the legs before she steps again, off to the side to let her fall. "I am very disappointed in you, young lady!"

Kyoko            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Malin

"Hey, don't get uppity- it's just my style~."

The words are spoken as though this explains and justifies absolutely everything. The fact that, almost instantly, she finds herself being lunged towards! She has to hand it to the teacher, she was a lot quicker than she'd imagined. Luckily, she doesn't prove to be quite quick enough to get her hands on the slippery teenager, who simply leaps up, tucking her legs underneath her and then darting to the other side, putting a little bit of distance between herself and her opponent.

The knife, however, seems to have vanished at some point in the maneuver, replaced instead with a yoyo! Well, that was childlike, wasn't it? Something youthful and innocent?

"I hope you don't think that's /all/ I've got on me though, Teach!"

And with that, the yoyo is flung forwards the short distance between them, seeming, at first, to be, well, just a yoyo. Nothing all that incredible. Why would Kyoko even want to get out the way of it, really?

Then, suddenly, a dual set of spinning blades spring out from the center of the toy, buzzing around at a terrifying rate as they aim to bury themselves in her midsection! Augh!

COMBATSYS: Kyoko dodges Malin's Short Onigumo.

Well damn it, Kyoko privately complains. This kid is pretty fast--and that could be a problem, especially if she wants to teach the young whippersnapper a lesson or two and put that sassy mouth of hers in place. Frowning faintly as the girl darts away and lands, Kyoko straightens her posture and offers a light 'ahem' before she turns to face the delinquent girl.

"Are you going to teach me a lesson with /that/?" she wonders, blue eyes falling onto the yoyo in Malin's hand. Really, it's a kid's toy! It's surely innocent! But that doesn't mean she wants to get hit by it. That's probably a healthy way to think too.

Because just as the yoyo snaps out and strikes only empty air, Kyoko witnesses the sudden set of blades that nearly found themselves lodged into her chest. A VERY BIG frown manages to worm its way on the woman's face.

"It's like you want me to hurt you," the woman calls out, dashing past the yoyo and toward Malin. She leaps a few feet from the girl and twists her body, a leg snapping out to kick the girl in the noggin. "Where are your manners??"

COMBATSYS: Malin dodges Kyoko's Kaishin.

Kyoko            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Malin

Malin's eyes go a little bit wide as Kyoko simply runs past her yoyo. She hadn't seen that one coming, that much is for sure! Never mind, though. She certainly doesn't seem too worried as the elder fighter comes in at her, and that leg passes within inches of her head. With a smirk, Malin performs a graceful set of backflips, winding up crouched and low, hands, for once, empty.

"Dunno, Teach. Must have left them with my uniform. Am I breaking more regulations now?~"

With a laugh, the girl performs a strange little half-revolution, before she springs up from her crouched position, running in a dead sprint straight at the teacher, at the last moment, she comes up short, and stomps back on her heel.

With an audible 'chunk' the hidden knife springs out the front of her shoe, and she swings her leg up, aiming to simply... stab the teacher in the side. Ouch.

COMBATSYS: Kyoko blocks Malin's Light Kick.

Kyoko            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Malin

"Why you slippery--!" is about all Kyoko manages to spout off as Malin leaps away and avoids the kick. Frowning still, the woman lands with a slight crouch, maintaining balance despite the heels she wears. A cursory glance is spared, eyeing the girl up a bit before she looks to her hands. Okay, she doesn't have a weapon anymore.

"I would say you are," she replies. "Bringing those terrible things in here! Have you no shame!?"

Probably not--then again, Kyoko sort of doesn't??

Blue eyes continue to observe the girl, even as she bounces deceptively around before she attacks after hitting the ground. Snapping her eyes aside, she notes the foot--and that nasty knife that springs out. "H-hey!" the nurse cries, snapping a hand out and deflecting the strike at Malin's shin, keeping that knife from shanking her in the ribs.

"Were you raised in a prison or something, young lady?!"

And as if to keep the girl from actually replying Kyoko moves, attempting to sweep the girl off her feet and fall with her, wrangling her legs around one of Malin's and locking it behind her armpit before she sharply arches her back, attempting to trap her in a pretty nasty leg lock!

COMBATSYS: Malin blocks Kyoko's Leg Bar.

Kyoko            0/-------/------=|=------\-------\0            Malin

Malin snorts at that, "Come on, Teach. What's wrong with you? Getting all bent out of shape, and I haven't even gotten started yet!"

It's a strange kind of thing, but Malin was having fun with this. There wasn't much on the line here, and it was strangely fun, even if Kyoko was managing to keep up with her to a disturbing degree. Still. The teachers luck couldn't last forever, could it?

Suddenly, she finds herself being swept down onto the floor. Proving to be just as slippery as Kyoko had imagined, the girl doesn't stay grabbed for long, instead writhing out of the grip before it can -really- manage to take hold, Malin fully intends to take advantage of this moment, both hands reaching around behind her for a moment.

"Come on Teach, if you find that shocking, how are you going to deal with /this/?!"

And as quickly as that, Malin's hands are striking forwards, a pair of smooth cylinders in them, she aims to drive the studded points of those weapons right into Kyoko's sides, and, if that is successful? A /terrifying/ amount of electrical power will be discharged all at once, aiming to truly shock and stun the teacher who had caused her so much trouble so far!

Regardless of the success or failure of the attack, though, Malin is determined to put some distance between herself and her opponent. She did not want to give her the chance to put the hurt on her again! Backing off down the corridor, she'll call back, "And of course I wasn't raised in a prison! I was /good/ at what I did! Only losers get caught!~"

COMBATSYS: Malin successfully hits Kyoko with Electric Prod EX.

Kyoko            0/-------/----===|==-----\-------\0            Malin

Just when Kyoko thinks she has her hands on the slippery little Malin, the weapon master decides to prove her wrong once again. Worming her way out of the nurse's grip, much to Kyoko's surprise. She frowns immediately at her really bad pun--not that is one at the time--

But it surely becomes one seconds later!

The cylinders smack into the woman's sides and deliver their nasty discharge of electricity, the nurse spasming and flailing a bit before the teacher is left to her own devices and Malin hops away and gets some distance between them. Smoking just a bit, the woman climbs back onto her feet, frowning again.

"I am most certainly not bent out of shape!" the woman argues back, completely invalidating her response. "And I will have you know, missy, I am not even worked up yet. You haven't made me break a sweat!" A frown crosses Kyoko's face, blue eyes narrowing. "You aren't trying hard enough," she teases with a slight grin. Nevermind that impromptu electrocution hurt more than she'd admit. Still, it doesn't stop the woman--not yet. Moving quickly, the woman makes a beeline right for Malin. Kyoko attempts to wiggle her way around Malin thereafter, trying to work the young punk into a full nelson!

"Well, wherever you were raised, you have no manners! What would your parents think??"

COMBATSYS: Malin dodges Kyoko's Quick Throw.

Kyoko            0/-------/----===|==-----\-------\0            Malin

Malin narrows her eyes. Hopping from foot to foot, the girl does seem to be getting just a little bit worried. How easily the woman had shrugged off the electric shock was something that gave even the feisty Malin a moment of hesitation. But it doesn't last long. Instead, as Kyoko comes back, Malin shifts gears and runs right towards her, too! At the final moment, she hits the deck, sliding underneath the woman as she grabs for her in a baseball slide, right between her legs. The annoyingly fast teenager is on her feet again in an instant, though, for once, she isn't smiling.

"Ain't got a clue!" She shoots back. "I'll ask next time I see them, aight?"

Of course, from this position, she needed to decide exactly what she was going to do -next-. Well. She certainly wasn't going to back down from the fight! So instead, she looks around for a moment, and spots... a vending machine!

In one smooth motion, Malin's fist connects with the front of the machine, and a delicious can of ice cold Pepsi (tm) drops out of the machine with a heavy /thunk/. Of course, this particular can has more to look forward to in life than being a wonderful thirst-quencher on a hot summers day!


Product placement done, the girl catches the can, and, in a strong, overarm motion simply /pitches/ it at Kyoko with as much force as she can muster. It might not be the best weapon in the world, but she'd be damned if she was going to let her get off light for that little jab, and somehow, this just felt -right-.

COMBATSYS: Kyoko blocks Malin's Small Thrown Object.

Kyoko            0/-------/---====|==-----\-------\0            Malin

Annoyingly fast is totally an understatement here--well, at least from Kyoko's perspective! Just when the nurse thinks she's about to full-nelson the slippery hoodlum she AGAIN worms her way out from her hands, sliding between and through the woman's legs, which immediately prompts the woman to cry out with "HEY!" and turn to face the girl. So little manners!

Next thing Kyoko knows the girl is totally not taking the fight seriously and is getting herself something to drink. Tilting her head to one side, the nurse folds her arms across her chest, lips pulling into a thin line as she narrows her eyes. "Pepsi? Really??"

But then it's THROWN AT HER FACE.

A hand moves, snapping the thing out of the air, leaving a nasty tingle through her hand in response. Immediately the woman spikes the can into the ground and dismisses it, causing another faculty member to gasp. Littering again!? "I happen to be a Coke lady!" she cries. "And this isn't diet!"

Frowning, she just fixes her attention on Malin. She needs to focus better--this kid is slippery, but there has to be SOME opening she can exploit in her style...

COMBATSYS: Kyoko calculates her next move.

Kyoko            0/-------/---====|==-----\-------\0            Malin

Malin smirks slightly, the girl actually straightens up as Kyoko pauses to consider her. The girl winks, and brushes her hair back behind her do-rag for a moment.

"See, Teach? I'm doing you a favor, here. I knew you didn't have any taste!"

And, that seems to be the end of the little bout of backchat. Malin was starting to take Kyoko just a bit more seriously than she had been before. After all. The teacher had kept her on her toes for a long while. It was just a matter of time before her luck began to run out, and Malin didn't like the thought of that one bit. So, instead, she tucks her hand behind her back. Veering from the left to right a little, she tries to, apparently, get the measure of the teacher.

Then, quite suddenly, that yoyo comes out into play again. Or at least, a yoyo does. This one whips out the full length of the corridor, spinning wildly, it bounces and ricochets from wall to floor to ceiling, and then back down again as those vicious blades spring out into being, cutting sparks along the floor, before the deadly toy aims to slash up and across the teacher.

"Come on, Teach!" She calls, mockingly. "You can't need a breather already, can you? We're only just getting started!"

COMBATSYS: Malin successfully hits Kyoko with Onigumo.

Kyoko            0/-------/--=====|==-----\-------\0            Malin

"Oh, I see," the woman replies, rolling her head to one side. Lifting a hand, deft fingers absently tuck stray black locks behind an ear. "You're a /Pepsi/ kid, aren't you?" It explains everything, in some weird and wacky way that only Kyoko knows. She smirks, however, blue eyes shifting back toward the girl. "Well, I knew it. You really are an uncouth young lady! I should teach you some manners, since your parents didn't."

Despite her words, Kyoko's tones sound anything but scolding or cruel; they're playful, to an extent, even if Malin poses a relative threat to her, what with her speed /and/ deadly weapons and all.

When the girl moves again, Kyoko tries to keep up--that doesn't quite pan out for her. Instead, that deadly yoyo makes its mark, leaving a nasty gash across the front of her clothes and slashing through her red sweater, an angry red streak weeping blood in its wake. Wincing, the woman staggers back, clutching a hand to her cut garment and aching abdomen.

"Well you're just being naughty now!" she calls out, dropping her hand to her side as she attempts to come close and deliver a side kick aimed for Malin's chest. "I liked this sweater, too!"

Malin grins at that, in a rather carefree manner, she simply leans back, and, at the last, possible moment, completes the motion to take her cartwheeling away from the kick. "Sorry Teach!" She calls back, laughing happily. "Maybe you should pick up something that looks like it was in fashion /this/ decade, though? I mean, hey, just a thought here!"

Malin, apparently, is determined to rile up the teacher to truly epic levels of Pupil Aggro. She certainly seems to be doing her best to keep herself out of range of those nasty blows of hers. The girl no longer playing with her toys, though. Now, she's produced a long knife from her pocket, and, after the cartwheel is completed, grasps the hilt tight, a second appearing in her hand.

Suddenly, she's coming forwards again. Closing the distance with the teacher surprisingly fast, her aim is pretty vicious. She's been dragging the fight on for a little while now, and, suddenly, she's aiming to drive the weapons painfully into Kyoko's shoulders, dragging the weapons down and across. The master of concealed weaponry truly displaying precisely -why- such implements aren't allowed on school grounds!

Kyoko            1/-------/=======|=======\-------\1            Malin

A brow ticks. Kyoko's jaw tenses a little.

Did Malin just accuse her of being...without a sense of fashion?!

There's a line, and Malin just crossed it in Kyoko's mind. Sure, drinking Pepsi is pretty bad and bringing weapons like deadly yoyos and knives to school are just a shame, but accusing Kyoko of being a decade behind everyone? That's a SIN! If she's trying to work Kyoko up, Malin hit the jackpot!

Visibly angry, the woman shivers before she points a finger right at the tiny girl, knife be damned.

Well, make that KNIVES.

"I will HAVE YOU KNOW," the woman roars. "THIS IS FROM THE GUCCI OH NINE LINE OF FALL APPAREL!" Even as Malin comes charging in, the woman just widens her eyes in rage. "So don't you DARE accuse me of being behind on fashion, young lady!" The moment the girl attempts to slash her poor sweater again--

Kyoko catches her by the wrist. "Got you, you little weasel!"

Lunging forward and upwards, the woman KNEES poor Malin in the stomach before she snap her leg up high and crashes it downward, right onto the top of the girl's do-rag. "HIYAH!"

At first, Malin just looks amused. After all; she'd won! She'd managed to work Kyoko up to the point that she just exploded when she couldn't take it any more! Hah!

Then, suddenly, her wrist is snatched, and she blinks. Wait a second. Kyoko was stronger than her.

/A lot stronger/.

All of a sudden, operation 'Piss Off Teacher' doesn't seem like such a stellar idea after all. No. Because, suddenly, the tables are turned, and she doubles over with a loud 'GHUK!' As that knee ploughs into her stomach, and, suddenly, her face is bouncing off the floor.

Malin is pretty clearly injured, rolling, desperately, back up to her feet. She's a little bit dazed, and a little bit confused about what, exactly, just -happened- here. More annoyingly, she's also dropped her knives. She liked those knives! They never let her down!

"Ow-ow-ow-ow!" She concludes, not, perhaps, the most inspiring words ever out of her lips. "Hey, hey, look, no need to go getting all worked up! Honest! I didn't mean anything by it, Teach! It looks very classy, on a woman your age! Honestly!"

This is said, naturally, as Malin backs off, stumbling just a little bit. Yowch. She needed to make sure that didn't happen again! Note to self: Teacher gets pissy!

COMBATSYS: Malin gains composure.

Well that certainly makes Kyoko feel a lot better!

Looking a little smug as poor Malin recoils from the blow and practically showers the woman in precisely what she wants to hear, Kyoko nods her head. Folding her arms, she offers a broad grin, "That's right, young lady, red just so happens to be my color. Don't you forget that, either!"

But, hey. It's a fight and Malin can't just sit around doing nothing all day, can she? "Anyway, I'll forgive you for your sassy remark," Kyoko explains, stepping forward as the girl stumbles back. "However, I still think you could use a bit more convincing. Seriously, what's so bad about going to school? You'll get meals, get to flirt with all the cute boys and learn at the same time!" Nevermind the Justice uniforms are god-awful.

If she's not convinced yet, Kyoko will try to do that by lashing out, attempting to snatch Malin by the collar of her shirt and throw her to the ground!

COMBATSYS: Malin fails to interrupt Medium Throw from Kyoko with Ascending Suzume Bachi.

Kyoko            0/-------/---====|=======\-------\1            Malin

Malin does not look amused! School was /so/ not her scene. Honestly. Malin? In a little school uniform? Needing to be polite to people and -nice-? No way! That was just asking for trouble. Besides. She moved around so much, she was rarely in the same city from week to week, let alone the kind of commitment necessary to stick around and set down roots!

Plus, you know. Sooner or later, Shadaloo and NESTS and the numerous other groups she habitually pissed off even /worse/ than Kyoko would figure out where she was, and then things would get sticky.

Overall: School, is not the place for Malin to be. And honestly, what was so great about boys anyway? She had a whole lifetime to worry about that junk, but only a few years in which she'd be at her prime! It was all downhill from here, yo! She needed to live in the mo--

Wait, the teacher has her by the collar?!

It might seem that Malin is starting to lose her touch, really. As Kyoko grabs her, for a split second, a very /large/, curved, razor sharp knife is produced, and begins its painful ascent upwards--

But Malin is just too slow to really get far with it. Instead, she winds up being ploughed painfully into the ground, face-first. Again, starting her remorseful complaints:

"Owowowowow! Teach! What is your /problem/?! I said I was sorry for trashing that ugly sweater!"

... no she didn't, did she? ...

Slamming poor Malin back-first into the ground, Kyoko releases her collar the moment the waif girl hits with a dull THUD. Stepping back a few, cautious steps, the nurse gives her another scrutinizing gaze with her lips pursed and eyes slightly hooded. Did she try to shank her in the middle of her throw? She sure thinks she saw a blade!

"My problem? What do you mean!? Sure, you trashed my poor sweater, but shouldn't you be a bit more bold? You're the one who said you wanted to kick my butt!" And she was doing a pretty good job of doing it. She's still aching and she's got the cuts and slashes to prove Malin's handiwork!

"...hey, wait a second! You called it ugly!?"

The woman attempts to punch poor Malin atop her head.

"You're not very sincere!"

COMBATSYS: Kyoko successfully hits Malin with Strong Punch.
- Power hit! -

Kyoko            0/-------/--=====|=======\====---\1            Malin


Poor Malin. It had all been going so well! But now the crazed teacher wouldn't stop with the head blows! Do you know how hard it is to concentrate when you are being smacked in the head every few moments? It's /really hard/ is how hard it is! Malin would, ordinarily, be doing her darndest to defend her earlier bravado. Of course she could kick the teachers butt! This was all just an unfortunate setback. That's all it was. She'd gotten in a few lucky hits and that was all. Nothing crazy. Certainly nothing Malin couldn't recover from!

But then she's punched again, and Kyoko's terrifying /FASHION RAGE/ is demonstrated as Malin is sent slamming into the ground. For a moment, she just sort of, lays there. Maybe that was it for Malin? Maybe she's sniped her last snide comment, and she's been rendered unconscious.

Ohoh, ye of little faith!

Malin /bursts/ up again, without a second of warning, what is most terrifying, however, is the fact that, somehow, some way, she's wielding a terrifyingly huge mallet. The weapon is brought around with all the force she can muster, literally aiming to bludgeon Kyoko back into the ground and hammer her down! Malin wasn't out of this yet, and only the foolish would count her out before she really was down for good!

COMBATSYS: Malin successfully hits Kyoko with Tsuzuchi.

"Yeah, that'll do," the woman muses aloud to herself as she brings her fist back, watching as poor Malin lay unconscious(?) on the ground at her feet. The teacher begins to turn away--

Until Malin LEAPS up from the ground. Turning around to face the young scamp with wide-eyes and a stunned expression, Justice's nurse is startled when a MASSIVE mallet suddenly bludgeons her atop the head and sends her into the ground, hitting the dusty earth face-first. A low, pained groan slowly eases past her lips. "NnnnnI'mgoingtoneedaspavisitnoooow."'s not over for Kyoko either.

The woman rolls over onto her back before she springs onto her feet, whipping around to face the girl with her eye glasses ajar and a dusty face. Immediately her hand snaps up and wipes her face clean. "Alright, missy! That's the last straw!"

Then? Kyoko attempts to seize poor Malin by the wrists. And should she get her hands on the poor kid she'll bend and twist her body into a series of painful grapples and holds, wrenching limbs and locking joints with frighteningly expert precision--and feminine (hulk) rage!

COMBATSYS: Malin blocks Kyoko's Shi no Kaigo EX.

Malin just refuses to lay down and take it quietly! Though she can't possibly get out of the way in time, the girl wriggles and squirms, slipping and sliding in Kyoko's grasp like, well, an oiled weasel. The trouble is, no matter how much you slip and slide, there's a certain amount that gets through, just by virtue of being grabbed over and over again. It really does grind her down, and, by the time its done, poor Malin, with her repeated head trauma, just isn't going to be able to carry on any longer.

So, what's a girl to do?

Well, say what you like about Malin, she has learned a couple of things. When the chips are down, for instance, it's always better to go with what you know, rather than trying something fancy. The least she could try to do was force the teach to go down with her!

Which is why rather than try for any fancy-smancy tricks, Malin holds her hands up.

"Okay, okay." She slurs. "You got me."

... And as she falls forwards, one hand aims to jab a metal probe right into Kyoko's neck. Really, you couldn't blame her for trying! Go! Taser power! Don't fail me now!

COMBATSYS: Malin can no longer fight.

"Nng, d-damn you--hold--still!" Kyoko grumbles while trying to show her a cornucopia of pain with her painful grips, making the effort nearly impossible for the nurse. Somehow the poor kid manages to fend the WORST of it off, showing an admirable amount of perseverance. If she wasn't so fussed about this kid's insulting behaviors and offensive style of fighting, she might be a little nicer!

Eventually the two untangle and stand off against one another. But...Malin gives up, it would seem, hands held up. Blue eyes hood in response, lips pulled into a thin line across the nurse's face. There's something certainly fishy about her behavior--especially considering how reluctant she was before!

"I dunno- -" she WOULD have begun, had Malin suddenly not tried to STAB her in the throat with that taser. A hand snaps up, catching the thing in her palm and causing her to jerk about, but otherwise keeps the worst of it at bay. She curls her hand through it all and snatches the thing out of the girl's grip.

"I'LL be taking that!" she says, pocketing it while huffing and puffing for breath.

" a good kid...and go get your...uniform." Certainly Malin has learned her lesson!

"I'll see you...bright and early...tomorrow!" Yes, Malin will now be a reformed and perfect student of Justice High.

COMBATSYS: Kyoko has ended the fight here.
