Shadaloo - I Spy

Description: A certain Aussie archaeologist-thief is minding her own 'business' outside the Sydney Opera House when she's suddenly set upon by someone who wants her precious pendant.

The last few months have been an extremely busy time for Reese. Since finding the necklace, she's been collecting other things as well -- pieces of jewelry, smaller artifacts and artwork, and a few items that aren't elaborate or important except to those that previously owned them. Of course, after collecting all these things she needed a place to hide them and keep them safe, and where better to keep a secure location than in her underground home in Coober Pedy?

Several of the items have been stashed away, and she's got a small bag of opals that's been 'borrowed' from the mines to sell to her contact at the jewelry store back in Southtown.

At the moment, she's actually eyeballing a diamond necklace on the neck of someone about to head into the Sydney Opera House -- it's just something to kill the time until she catches her flight. Fingers fiddle at her own necklace, and she can hear that voice in the back of her head.

// Go ahead. The diamonds would look better on you. They should be yours. What did she do to deserve them? //

The trench coated and decapitated body slowly topples forward to the roof amidst a brief shower of sparks and an arc of electrical blue light playing across the severed neck. Still standing behind the monitor cyborg a smiling Juri Han relishes the satisfaction welling up from beep inside when smashing one of Vegas toys and eyes out in the world at large. A languorous stretch of her arms and hooking her thumbs behind her belt the Korean women sets one foot n the raised edge off the rooftop and peers down trying to follow the target the monitor must have been following.

"Hmm, I spy.With my little eye"

The crowds below are fair bustling, plenty of traffic but the target must have been afoot. It doesn't take too long to weed out amongst the crowds of overweight sickly and weak masses. A fighter maybe? Juris Luck just keeps getting better. One of vegas toys and now maybe even something he was interested in. He would be so upset to have something just.. slip through his fingers.

"Something that's about to disappear."

The smile widens now, the game is finally afoot, crushing the cyborg had simply been an impulse reaction to seeing it alone and being bored. But now this was a game that might actually hurt Shadaloo, Whoever the girl was was irrelevant. If she was gone, then whatever interest or plans the great and Mighty Chin had for her would go poof.

Juri turns away form the rooftop edge but she's already hunting, Tailing Reese and getting closer by the minute.

If Reese were aware what was afoot, she //might// just find it comical. She's tailing some rich, snooty woman to distract her and snag the diamond necklace, and she herself is being tailed by not only a now-dead cyborg, but a Korean woman as well.

Jostling against the woman, she apologizes and snags the watch first. As she's slipping //that// into her pocket, she looks horrified and plays up the distraction technique. "Crikey! I'm sorry. I didn't mean to run into you, I just got a bit distracted." Beat. "I just //love// your purse. Wherever did you get it?"

While she waits for the woman to tell the boring story about which shop she purchased it from, in which city, and by which designer, Reese reaches up and fiddles with the strap. "It was caught in your hair," she comments. Then she takes the card for the shop where it was procured, and walks away palming the diamond necklace -- the woman none the wiser.

//That was a relatively easy mark. Why don't you try something a little more difficult?//

Reese gives her head a little shake, then smirks. Time to find a new mark.

Already on the street and following along behind the woman at her own pace Juri is surrounded by something of a bubble, she is not jostled and people pass her by only to sneak worried glances over their shoulder at her back. Juri Han might not be someone anyone hoped or feared to bump into on the street but they certainly don't make the mistakes of stopping or of asking her for an autograph.

Still closing the distance with the near silent padding of her bare feet on the sidewalk the thin lips are twisted in a sadistic smile. The girl wasn't running yet in fact, she seemed to be plying her trade.. a thief then? Disappoint.

Her footsteps slow as Juri reconciles that information with the hopes the woman would put up a good fight. Still, thieves were usually pretty tough and quick, it just might be more of a chase than a bit of a fight. She dangerously close now approaching inexorable but there's something about this woman. Something she can't quite place but definitely something.. Her good mood is evaporating as she stops just a dozen feet away staring at the woman's back, a presence that might as well be leaning over Reese's shoulder cooing in her ear, The woman was a damn fine thief. She was even pretty.. maybe she was another Doll recruit. But there is something bothering her, that's not it!.

"You're pretty good! But there something about you that pisses me off."

There is something niggling at the back of her neck, something that tells her she's being followed. Reese gives her head a shake again, and half turns, ready to tell Marius that stalking her is just //really// uncouth. Then again, he could be following her to get back at her for destroying his Lego mansion, and his hopes and dreams.

Who knows?

When she doesn't spot Marius immediately after peering over her shoulder, the archaeologist starts to relax. Just a little. But that niggling feeling //isn't// going away. Frowning, she checks over her shoulder again to see if the woman's noticed her necklace is gone and has called the authorities. She doesn't spot //them// either, and again she relaxes. Just a little.

But that feeling remains.

Reese finds out why when she hears a woman's voice behind her. Turning slowly, she gives the woman a once over and tries to decide if she's worth taking anything from.

"There's somethin' 'bout you that pisses me off too," she replies slowly. "You're following me."

There is a delightful morsel. The woman is acting tough and that in of itself was something to enjoy for the moment, it might not last long so Juri spends an extra second noting that expression and that annoyance. A comparison to how she might be when she realized she was about to die. A chortle of laughter that and she spreads her arms.

"So you agree, one of us should Disappear then."

Her voice achieves n affectionate purr and a harsh threat, so reasonable a woman she was in this situation. Her excitement beginning to build the act of keeping her movements so slow and languid belies the perceptible threat level rising around both women. This was the best moment before the kill, the standoff before it all began, the anticipation.

"So, I'll make you disappear then. You can run if you want.. see how far you get."

Every fibre of her being just wants to explode into action and attack now, but that savouring enhances the flavour of the kill, much like being deprives of killing something for too long. Hunger is the best spice. Juri licks her lips with the dart of her pink tongue. What will she do? Run or fight.

"Yes. You." Reese sweeps her hand to the side as though telling the woman to buzz off. She turns back around and starts her trek to find another mark, only she catches the woman's next words. Twisting toward her again, she raises her brow.

"Everyone thinks they're a magician," she mutters under her breath.

"As you don't appear to be the law, I really don't see the point in running." Shoulders shrug upward, and the archaeologist actually looks a bit bored. She watches the strange woman for a moment, and then shakes her head again.

There's a faint buzzing, the knowledge that //someone// is close, but she can't tell where it's coming from. Granted, she's got an instant dislike for this woman so it could be //her// she's getting the feeling from.

"But you should run along. You've not got a thing worth stealing, and you're wasting my time."

Juri openly expresses her disappointment with a frown, A rebuff? did this silly girl have absolutely no survival sense. Turning away and as her thoughts turn gloomy with such disappointment, What a turn off if she wouldn't run.

"Huh! You really are an irritating person."

That still wasn't it, she can almost taste an aura around this woman. It wasn't weak but comparatively feeble, enough to whet her appetite or to hint that maybe there would be something more than talk to this woman.

The soft and building whine of the Feng Shui Engine drowns away all background noise, a knife dropped into the centre of a discussion. She angles her face just a little bringing that glowing purple eye to bear.

"Times up."

Not that she had been counting anyway, but her patience had definitely been completely eroded, if she won't get any amusements here she would finish the girl quickly, a small kindness. Juri is suddenly beside Reeses, seeming not to bother with the intervening space between A and B and thrust her foot out at the other woman, She is not so foolish as to kill someone right in the street. But just off the street yet still in near in plain sight is good enough a distinction. She kicks out trying to smash Reese right across into a commercial dumpster.

"//I'm// the irritating one?" Here, Reese was minding her own business, trying to steal useless items that annoyingly well-off people have insured and can make claims on, and this purple woman is annoyingly in her way. Taking a deep breath, she's about to tell Juri to bugger off, when the woman is suddenly beside her.

"What did... how did...?"

The questions die in her throat as she realizes what's about to happen. The kick is met with a quick block, facilitated by the whip that Reese is now holding. She slides back several feet, but doesn't wind up in the dumpster. //Thank goodness. Can you imagine getting that garbage out of your hair?//

Several quick lashes of the whip are made, angled toward the woman's shin. Reese isn't trying to kill her... per se... just trip Juri up and keep her down so that she can deal with this and get on with her business.

COMBATSYS: Reese successfully hits Juri with Excavation.
~~ Alluring Hit! ~~

Grudging admiration, the girl was no slouch despite Juri not even really trying. A warning shot across the bows, well.. maybe a small hit. But The sweet stinging pain of the whip is surprising, who would have thought that wasn't just some form of prop or a trashy tourist item. The welt like blemish on her leg and the tears in the baggy trousers speaks differently. Juris loses her footing reflexively rolling to the opposite way but charges right in. having never fought anyone with a whip before, but getting the general idea that in close quarters seems like the thing to do.

"Oho, you aren't bad! You got me smiling"

There is no favouring her leg or even checking to see what the damage was. There is that speed again, Juri moves straight in but she's hard to follow if not to predict. Juri Throws a kick, a poised heel and snakes it around to behind the head of her opponent, She'll draw them right down into an upraised knee and then a aerial spinning back kick.

COMBATSYS: Juri successfully hits Reese with Karen Kick.

"Bully to you," Reese says in regards to the woman smiling. She really doesn't //care// that the slice of the whip is causing the obviously masochistic woman to smile. What she //does// care about is the fact that she's getting back to her feet right away. Obviously this isn't just some annoying woman, it's some annoying woman that knows what she's doing.

That causes the archaeologist to frown a little.

Reese tries to keep an eye on her, and moves to the left a little, only to get kicked in the back of the head and slammed into the hard bone of an upraised knee. Blood spurts from her nose and lip, but it doesn't seem to stop her. She gets up and wipes her thumb across her nose and then dips her head forward. She'll worry about the potential brokenness of her nose later.

The hit has made her angry, and the voice that's constantly whispering in her ear is telling her to do something about it. Glaring at Juri, she quickly coils the whip in her hand and stares at it. Ruby red psi-energy seems to encompass her arm, her eyes glowing just a little as she thrusts the fist forward, trying reciprocate the bleeding face.

COMBATSYS: Reese successfully hits Juri with Medium Punch.
- Power hit! -

Juri             0/-------/----===|=======\==-----\1        [E] Reese

That face, it's changed already. Blood, worry, pain, fear? Juri relishes those little signals as the she continues to play with the woman. She is playing well so far, blow for blow with Juri Han, maybe Vega might even shed a tear over her loss, she would struggle to control her laughter at the sight.

Still rushing in, Knocking the woman away with the blow knocking the other woman away had not actually been part of the game plan, staying in close would neutralise the effective-The blow rocks Jurics head backward, the fist buried in her palm and momentum with which she was travelling is enough to life her feet clear form the ground and arc her lightly into the ai. The Taekwondoka drops straight down onto her back, her legs folding back towards her obscured head until the momentum suddenly arrests and the swing back violently, Upper body swinging back up into a vertical position though she remains crouched for a heartbeat, reading Reese's face, hoping for that failing of hope.. that it had been over. She really is smiling now, a cruel twist to her lips and a predatory gleam in her eyes.

"I can actually see why you might be missed. WELL ~TOO BAD~."

Blood is flowing, too much of her own but that adds even more to the delight of the kill, even if it is proving to be quite resilient. Juri runs in, fast foot pads and a leaping kick to the chest turns nasty as she rolls back in mid-air to perform a crescent kick with the other leg.

COMBATSYS: Reese fails to counter Kick Combo from Juri with Artifact Snare.

Juri             0/-------/----===|=======\=======\1        [E] Reese

Anger is more like it. Anger that this woman is interrupting her. Anger that her face is now broken, and that's going to make thieving a bit more difficult. People are going to notice and remember an injured face a lot more than a normal one. Anger that the strange woman might actually be here to take her pretty pendant.

//That's right. Protect that pendant. Don't let anyone take it."

Even as Juri moves, Reese lashes the whip out again. She attempts to catch it around the kick that's coming toward her chest, but the way the woman moves is just too quick for Reese's skill with the whip. There's a rather loud curse that looses from her lips as the kick crashes against her and she lands on the ground, looking a little dazed.

Juri relaxes, settling her hand on her hip and watching questioningly. Down finally? She probes the inside of her cheek with her tongue, tore up a little from the punch and it explains the strong taste of blood. Barely having to feign her disinterest Juri ambles closer, a straight-legged and slow mosey wondering if the other woman will rise or if they have any light left. There is no fear in Juris actions, just the opportunity to prolong the fun.. savour the moment rapidly coming close.

'Guess that's all you've got.."

She leans down and places her hand around the exposed throat, it's a gentle gesture deceptively so and her fingertip sliders down the side of the neck and hools through the chain of the pendant worn around that vulnerable neck, Juri crooks her finger and gently lifts the chain, examining the pendant while still around the other woman's neck.

'So that's it.."

The thing reeks of Vegas Psycho Powers and is enough for to expresses the same open disgust any woman might and handling so venomous and filthy an object. So this was what all the fuss was about, she knew Vega was up to something of late, but whatever this -thing- was it would be better for her if she destroyed it now.

"Hmph, that's a bad joke.. I'm doing you a favour."

COMBATSYS: Juri takes no action.

Juri             0/-------/----===|=======\=======\1        [E] Reese

Reese visibly twitches as the fingers touch the pendant. Her head twists side to side as she tries to tell herself to get up and to fight to keep it.

//It is **your** pendant,// the voice in her head says. //Fight for it!//

Gripping the whip in her hand, she opens her eyes wide and //glares// at Juri. "Put. That. Down." Beat. "You can't have it." There isn't a great deal of room for Reese to pull off the move, but she's got enough that she can flick her wrist and try to snare the whip around Juri's neck. Pulling up to her feet as she makes the move, she yanks hard on the whip handle in an attempt to draw Juri off her feet before turning her into a human paddleball.

COMBATSYS: Juri blocks Reese's All About Me.

Juri             0/-------/----===|=======\-------\1        [E] Reese

Attention fixed firmly on the pendant Juri doesn't (or rather can't afford to) acknowledge Reese with more than a momentary glance. Good that the girl had fight left in her but this pendant was so dangerous a thing she daren't take her eyes off it for too long. Juri raises her arm and throws it wide, the whip strike biting lightly into her arm and tightening painfully as she gives it a sharp tug.

Her remaining free hand tanged in the chain of the pendant she grips Reese's throat also, and firmly; raising her upper torso until they meet. Eyes to eye to Feng Shui Engine contact between the two, Serious and sombre violet eyes have little tolerance for bullshit at this point. Juri lifts the other woman a little from the ground by her throat and quickly slams her back down.

"Shut up and go to sleep."
Her hand pulls away trying to snap the chain as she commands that the nuisance of a woman stay down and quit causing problems. Then the only thing to do is destroy the cursed thing.. as quickly as humanly possible.

COMBATSYS: Juri successfully hits Reese with Quick Throw.

Juri             0/-------/----===|=======\===----\1        [E] Reese

Reese is slammed to the ground, but she refuses to listen to the woman telling her to go to sleep. The Aussie reaches up to try and stop the hand that pulls the chain.

Then her hand slowly drops down. It //looks// like she may be down and out, but the truth is that she's not out yet. The chain snaps easily enough, and Juri gets her hand on the pretty ruby.

The voice seems to stop for a second, but she can almost hear it in the back of her head. //You're not going to let her just **take** it are you?//

"Of course not," she mutters tiredly. Dropping the whip, she reaches her hands down to her holsters and quickly draws the guns out. Staring at Juri, she fires off a barrage of super-charged chi-bullets at her. All of her energy is focused on the guns, and as the last shot comes out of the barrels they come together to form a gigantic super bullet that blasts toward Juri before exploding on impact.

COMBATSYS: Reese keeps on fighting!

Pendant firmly in hand Juri finds it even more revolting; to have that aura of pwerd in her her own hands makes her stomach twist itself into knots. She tightens her fist around the setting, her own Psychokinetic energy beginning to build, the gold setting easily begins to warm in her hand but the gemstone itself painfully digs into her palm, whatever is inside the gemstone isn't going to die without a fight even with the tremendous levels of energy Juri freely pours into crushing it.


She turns at the first gunshot. Damn! the girls back on her feet and It's a small matter to redirect some of the overwhelming build-up of energy form the Feng Shui engine into a counter-attack. The bullets beginning to congeal together and race towards her Juri erupts with an aura of wafting purple tendrils of energy, the ragged and formless mass gathering around her foot as she sweeps it around to meet the incoming projectile as it finally resolves into the perfected and much larger form.

The masses of energy compete but her own is noticeably not enough, Not? Enough!

"You BIT-"

The angry roar of Juri's voice is lost in the detonation of the silver bullet and in the long haired Taekwondoka sliding backwards, the soles of her feet scoring across the ground with only a faint rasp and onto a grass verge where she suddenly wavers form side to side and then drops to one knee. That was unexpected, and it hurt. The whole time Juri keeps pouring even more energy into her fist and crushing Vegas little talisman.

"You, want this so bad?"

Her upraised fist offers the pendant and the chain tangled around her fist towards Reese before a sudden tightening hints at something inside suddenly giving way. It doesn't have long left.

"Come and get it."

There is something in that pendant //calling// to Reese. She does want it. More than that, it's almost as though she //needs// it. As though when wearing that pendant she is somehow a //much// better thief. She has no morals, and just takes what she wants, and...

//Is that why I was going after Faolan's bata?//

No, that doesn't make any sense. Obviously there must be something about the bata that actually makes it important and not just a stick.

The problem right now is that Reese really doesn't //want// to move. So she does the next best thing. She takes one of the guns that she's holding, and angles it toward Juri's hands. Then she pulls the trigger and fires off a double chi-bullet at her. As they move toward Juri, the energy bullets become sharp and pointy like ancient arrowheads.

COMBATSYS: Juri endures Reese's Projectile Point.

[              \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////                        ]
Juri             0/-------/-----==|==-----\-------\0        [E] Reese

Blood spurts and falls in a sudden wet patter below Juris curled fist. Eyes do not blink at the pain, her fist does lose physical strength and and the chain slips some on the blood and change of pressure between her figures, but that vortex like singularity of energy is what is doing the crushing. Thin and pale lips peel back in a harsh and mocking grin from the S.I.N spider.

"I guess you aren't coming."

The object in her fist gives way with a audible pop but the outrush of contained energy is something to behold. formless, an indirect able pure energy and malevolence that explodes from that closed fist and yet more blood gouts from between her fingers and palm.

There is no flash of thunder, roar of wind.. no divine punishment for crushing a small part of a man who calls himself a god. Juri contentedly opens her hand and lets the fragments of ruby and pendant fall loose before casually lobbing them to the ground halfway between herself and Reese, baubles hold no interest for she who instead contents herself with examining her palm and licking one of the more painful tears in one of her slim finger.

Seemingly paying no attention to Reese for the moment Juri has not forgotten about her and the pendant as it lays is quite obviously a trap.

COMBATSYS: Juri gains composure.

Hearing that pop is the most horrific thing Reese has ever heard. "You... that... the ruby..." It //was// a beautiful pendant, and Reese //would// have kept it for herself, but now that it's in pieces, and it's no longer actually talking to her she seems to give up.

The energy, the malevolence that explodes forth from the pendant //do// wash over Reese briefly, but then they're gone and the Aussie just gives her head a shake. She blinks a few times, trying to determine if what she saw was real, and then she glances at Juri.

"It's shattered. No point in picking up the pieces //now//." They're worth a pittance compared to what it was with the size of the blood-red ruby that was there //before// the woman crushed it. Slowly, Reese gathers herself to her feet. Her movements are wobbly, and she would much rather remain on the ground -- but doing so would be much better if she were off to the side of things rather than in the middle of them.

Plus, she's still got a plane to catch, and a face to take care of.

"You can keep it."

Not so simple a creature as she appeared. Perhaps that pendant was to blame for that or maybe she was just discerning with her greed. Juri would have all but killed the woman with one blow fi she had made the mistake of trying to pick up the near worthless trinket, but now that she had no fallen for it Juri's intent has not changed in the least.

"Well aren't you generous."

There is no question as to whether her actions had inadvertently saved the other woman. And they seemed alike enough that a concession form either about one owing the other, One woman obsessed with material, other with her own pleasures and amusements.

"But we're still not square."

Juri feels like keeping one little promise to herself today, the other woman does indeed irritate her and needs to get out of her sight, which should improve her mood.The flat of her foot comes down on the pieces of the pendant as she dashes en route to Reese in a gentle curving arc, hair whittping and arms dragging behind her body until she pivots and lashes out with her foot. The skip bin from earlier beckons and it's just where trash belongs!

COMBATSYS: Juri successfully hits Reese with Spin Kick.

A shrug is given to the observation that she's generous. Reese //can// be generous when the right situation warrants it. This is obviously not the right situation, and as the pendant is broken and no longer of any worth, she's happy enough to walk away and let the strange woman have her victory. That's not being generous so much as smart -- she's out matched with this woman, and rather than winding up in a body cast, it's just smarter to walk away now.

As the foot comes in toward her, Reese calculates a dodge and swings to the left. That's when the foot crashes against her body and sends her arcing backward into the bin.

It's on the tip of her tongue to argue that it was honestly unnecessary, but //really// so long as she stays down for a little while she's certain the woman will leave her be for now.

At least she hopes that's the case.

Standing on one leg Juri lowers the striking foot to the ground with at a leisurely pace, no explosion of pissed of woman or activity from the bin. She tucks her thumbs behind her belt, her ragged pants and torn up hand and the whip gash in her shin. It was a surprisingly amount of damage to have taken, especially from this strange random encounter.

But she knows she mustn't Linger here any longer, if Vega has any more eyes about and they can affirmatively place her at this scene right now then she won't even be able to plausibly deny anything other than pleading ignorance.

"I can't wait around anymore. But I hope we meet again"

Probably for the last time if they were to cross paths again. Slouching her posture and walking away heedless of her own injuries Juri does suddenly turn to look back over her shoulder. The woman reminded her of someone.. but she couldn't place it and it wasn't interesting enough to dwell on. She gives an offhanded wave and walks back towards the street. The few people that had been standing there watching the fight scatter like roaches when the lights come on. She is smiling now, that tiny warm glow at the centre of her being when she crushed that pendant. She doubts she will ever forget that exhilirating feeling.

"Catch you later!"

COMBATSYS: Juri has ended the fight here.
