Neo League 851 - #868: May Lee vs Angel

Description: Suspended in a wrestling ring high above a deadly drop, May Lee and Angel engage in a brief and explosive Neo-League encounter for ranking supremacy! ( Winner: Angel )

Sure, there's a big ol' expanse of netting partway down the canyon, and there are barriers bounding the several feet of flooring extending beyond the bottom of the ring, but by and large... this is dangerous to an almost unconscionable degree.

So hopefully, it will get lots of ratings.

A roped ring has been suspended from the upper edges of the canyon, with the aforementioned black flooring on the outside to provide a place for either fighter to go should one or the other fall out of the ring. There are helicopters flying around for overhead camera angles - not to mention for getting the two combatants into the ring at all - as well as a few cameramen on the 'floor' for close up shots.

In one of the ring's corners, Korea's May Lee is standing rather still, having just been dropped off into place and now facing the task of rationalizing the fact that this is all rather awesome with the fact that there are some rather difficult to ignore risks at hand. Her eyes are nearly closed and her hands are clenched loosely at her sides as she looks down at the canvas contemplatively.

"Ooh, fancy~" is all the eccentric, silver-haired cowgirl had to say about it all when she dropped into the ring across from her would-be opponent. Other than that, she's just got this cocky grin on her face, and she starts pacing out the distance from one corner to the other on her end, casually guiding camerapersons to either side of her whenever one happens to get in her way. It looks a lot like she's trying to count her steps, but then the announcer comes in over the speakers all loud and distracting and she like, totally freaks out. "Wait wait..! What number was I even on!? Nuts!"
Angel stomps a foot in the midst of her little outburst, and then immediately seems to want to do it again, and again. Is she maybe testing how solid it is?

May Lee twitches slightly at the announcements, echoing across the canyon mainly for the benefit of the live spectators seated on either side of the divide with big screen monitors hooked up to give them a proper view of what's going on.

And then the bell rings and she's seemingly ready to go, hopping on her feet and drawing her hands up to leave her stiff posture. Her head is canted to the side as she examines Angel's pacing curiously, and she even goes so far as to lean forward and quickly wave a hand back and forth while shouting, "Hey! Hey, are you ready? The bell--are you okay? I--oh... well..."

She swallows a little, then takes off sprinting towards her silver-haired opponent, curling up into a little ball to test for Angel's readiness by trying to thrust both feet in against the side of her head.

COMBATSYS: Angel dodges MayLee's Surprise Air Finish.

MayLee           0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Angel

Angel doesn't look ready in the slightest. She's got this confused look on her face, and she's pointing fingers at her temples like she's either trying to get the gears in her head to turn really hard, or she's trying to read someone else's mind. It's like she doesn't even notice May Lee is there until the Korean is already like a split second from making contact with her dome. But this turns out to be more than enough time for the NESTS agent. She's crazy fast.
There's a blur of motion as Angel leans to one side to let the Korean chick sail past, and then she turns and steps forward to follow up after she lands with a retaliatory roundhouse, trying to catch May with both the foward momentum of the kick itself, and the backward as she retracts the same foot. Again, it's all incredibly fast.

COMBATSYS: Angel successfully hits MayLee with Senseless Fists.

The first kick that catches the rising May Lee staggers her, and the second drops her right to the mat with only her hands and knees to keep herself propped at all. There's a cry of surprise at the pair of unexpected strikes, followed by soft panting as she tries to shake it off and get herself back together.

"Number--what numbers are you talking about?" she wonders as she hops up to her feet with a little roll and a forward flip. She rubs the side of her head a little, flashes a smile and adds, "You're very quick!"

Rather than await a response, she slips in with a low hop, throws a quick couple of punches intended as feints to get Angel protective and off-balance, and then she finally reaches out suddenly to try vaulting over the cowgirl's shoulders so that both feet can be planted against her back; the strength of her legs will be exerted in full to push the Korean heroine away into a little roll, should she make contact.

COMBATSYS: Angel blocks MayLee's Swan Circle.

MayLee           0/-------/----===|==-----\-------\0            Angel

Angel didn't even take a fighting stance before throwing that kick, and she even fails to do so after the fact. Like it was reflex, almost. She's *still* not paying attention? "Huh? Man I don't even know! I'm all mixed up today. Maybe I shoulda let you kick me in the head after all..."
But of course, as she's saying that, the tokusatsu enthusiast is trying to attack her. The speedy Mexican girl's hands move lightning-quick to deflect each punch, and then, when May attempts to leapfrog over her and push her, all Angel does is spread her feet further apart and plant herself more firmly. It's not a faultless defense or anything, so she still ends up hunching forward a bit, but it at least keeps her from hitting the mat face first. "Ngh..! Okay, just forget it. Whatever it was!"
She then turns around fully to face the other fighter again, and cracks her knuckles a bit before putting them out in front of her, flexing and unflexing the joints of her fingers. "Anyway, yeah, I'm fast. How about you? Is jumping around your thing?" the cowgirl asks quizzically, at the same time she's trying to rush forward to grab the other girl to bodyslam her none too lightly..!

"I'm--" May Lee begins to reply before having her words disproven by Angel's getting ahold of her far quicker than she ever expected. Before she knows it, her intentions of catching those grasping hands to deflect them and leave the Mexican grappler open to be sent away by a vertical kick are dashed, leaving May Lee on her back and gasping for air with no small amount of shock.

Angel turns her head and leans down rather close while cupping her ear. "Hmm? What's that...? You really oughta finish your sentences, chica!" Not that, you know, she's going to give her downed opponent the chance just yet. She's a rather impatient woman, and it's much to tempting to elbow drop someone when she sees them in such a vulnerable position! "C'mon, get up! Let's go let's go!"

COMBATSYS: MayLee dodges Angel's Aggressive Strike.

It might have just been a matter of time, or it might be some odd response to the taunting, but no matter the reasoning, May Lee is rolling back onto her hands to vault herself up to her feet in a powerful kip-up. Along the way, the surface of her Power Belt shimmers brightly, and just before her feet touch the ground she gives a little twirl in the air that allows her to land perpendicular to Angel, her right leg extended out along the ground and her left bent back. Her fists are up, and thanks to a little gust of wind, her scarf is fluttering persistently.

Perhaps more importantly, she's smiling from ear to ear in spite of having already been battered rather badly.

"Don't worry," she brightly says, "I'm up! I'm up, and I'm ready to go!"

That assurance out of the way, she darts forward and tries to slip her foot in behind Angel's knee in order to hook it to pull her off balance. Should she manage that, her hands will reach for the Mexican's neck and under arm to flip her soundly over onto her back.

COMBATSYS: Angel fails to interrupt Medium Throw from MayLee with Bye Bye Rogue.

MayLee           0/-------/-======|====---\-------\0            Angel

Angel completes the elbow drop without the warm body for it to fall on, May Lee having narrowly escaped, and looks rather disappointed! Also, it kind of stung her funnybone hitting the floor of the ring with it as hard as she did as a result. Plenty to pout about! Trading places with the Taekwondo chick is *totally* not what she meant.
"Hey what the--??? Oof!" She doesn't even have time to watch the transformation sequence, since she was too busy getting back to her feet, and she's soundly dropped a second time by the flipping. A fist went out to try and sock May under the chin, but it went wide and completely missed..!

As soon as Angel is down, May Lee is in motion, running past where the Mexican was thrown to hop onto the middle ring rope. No sooner than her feet touch it than she springs off, twisting in mid air with her limbs out to leave just her torso exposed as the striking surface for a sudden splash across Angel's body.

After having done a little bit of time in an honest to God wrestling arena, it's quite likely that Angel's methodology so far is bringing up flashbacks.

COMBATSYS: Angel blocks MayLee's Quick Throw.

MayLee           0/-------/-======|=====--\-------\0            Angel

Rather than roll her way back to her feet, Angel does the complete opposite, and pushes herself up into a handstand the instant before May Lee tries to moonsault on her, catching her against the soles of her feet. There's a pause then, because well, that's a pretty awkward way to try and hold someone else up. But even so, the amiable assassin attempts to shift her legs and lock them about the suped-up Korean's before twisting violently and sending her spiraling away.
"Oh! Oh! Are we being serious now?!"

COMBATSYS: Angel successfully hits MayLee with Red Sky of Japonesia.

MayLee           1/-----==/=======|======-\-------\0            Angel

May Lee had been perfectly ready to vault /herself/ off of Angel, because having another fighter's feet wedged in against the body like that is really quite uncomfortable. She's rather off-guard when she finds Angel taking care of the problem for her in a far more painful fashion, and as she bounces away along the canvas she is groaning painfully thanks to the shocks to her battered body.

She has to adjust her goggles and push a few locks of hair out of her eyes once she pushes herself upright, but her slightly dishevelled appearance and bruised body do not diminish the smile etched across her features, and after taking a second or two to catch her breath she forces herself to her feet.

"That was--that was /very/ unexpected!" she calls out in complimentary fashion. She even offers the NESTs agent a quick thumbs up before leaping across the ring and drawing her right hand up above her head. "And just so you know, I /can/ finish sentences; I'm gonna finish one right /now/!" she shouts. "CHOOOOOOPPU!"

At the end of that shout, she'll try to slam her right hand down upon Angel's shoulder in a thunderous karate(Taekwando?) chop.

COMBATSYS: Angel blocks MayLee's May Lee- Chop!.

[                 \\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////          ]
MayLee           1/-----==/=======|=======\-------\0            Angel

Angel flips herself rightside-up again rather effortlessly after the little breakdance twist, and takes a moment to dust herself off while she watches the self-proclaimed superhero recover, however briefly. Though in response to the thumbs-up, she does this weird little gesture of her own, pointing her index fingers up at either side of her head and giving them a little wiggle. Devil horns, maybe? Alien feelers? Bull horns...?
The latter starts to seem the most likely when May Lee attempts to chop her, as the edge of the descending hand stops against an upraised shin, and then the crazy cowgirl just immediately charges forward, throwing hard rights like she thinks she's The Rock. There's something like six swings total, and then a pause before the final blow, at which point she tries to sell it a little more than the others like it's being infused with some unseen power! "No, no! That was all wrong, see? You gotta do it more like THIS!"

COMBATSYS: Angel successfully hits MayLee with Blue Monday Parade.

MayLee           1/=======/=======|====---\-------\0            Angel

May Lee's scarf stills a little when her hand meets Angel's shin, and then she bounces back a step to try pulling her hands up when she sees that the Mexican is incoming; her speed is great enough, however, that every one of those punches catches her dead on, with the last causing her to crumple just about instantly with a low groan.

She lays still for a second, for two, for five, for ten... by all appearances, she is out for the count.

Then again, though, unconscious Korean heroines don't gasp, "I--I dunno... what--what about--" in raspy and barely audible tones.

Nor do they burst suddenly from the ground to drive their right feet towards the chin of the grapplers responsible for rendering them so.

COMBATSYS: MayLee can no longer fight.

"This?!" escapes May Lee's lips once the kick connects. The blow is followed closely by a forward flip that allows her to plant her foot against Angel's shoulder, and then one more once she's sprung away, legs swinging down to kick the Mexican twiceover in the back.

And then she is, for a split-second, gone, chi driving her to move at speeds untrackable by the eye to dart to the ground behind Angel.

When she lands, a mighty gale of wind blows to send her scarf and hair both fluttering in wildly dramatic fashion, and with a smile limned in blood she twists in place to send Angel a short ways into the air with a standing uppercut.

"I can--do this--I can--you're very--strong, but..." she says with a shudder after striking, and then with bitten back pain she leaps to position herself over Angel, her hands blurring as they thrust down towards her over and over and over again, never making contact but emitting explosive bursts of white chi with each movement.

When the heroine's desperate assault comes to an end, she falls to the ground, clutches her chest briefly, then weakly presses the edge of her hand against it as fire chi ignites all across Angel's body in a flashy explosion.

And then, her brief, brief second wind expended, she collapses into unconsciousness. This time, no last moment surges of vigor will be helping her.

Angel doesn't even know what hit her. And while that may be due in part to the speed at which May Lee moves, it's also her own fault for having such a short attention span. One minute, she was issuing forth the final Falcon Punch, and noticing the sentai fan's consciousness leaving. At that point, she thought 'Oh, it's over already? Guess I overdid it'. And then the next, she hears the girl try to say something to her.
"Eh? You still awake or are you just mumbling in your slee- AI!" The sudden brutal attack blocks her back against the edge of the ring and she has to catch herself on the ropes to keep from falling. There's then a tense moment where the announcer waits just a *little* bit longer to see if the Korean girl is going to get up again, before ultimately declaring the match over.
"A- aw! You did it again! That's not a sentence!" Why would someone who doesn't even use proper grammar care about such a thing? Tune in next time and you may just find out!

COMBATSYS: Angel has ended the fight here.
