Ch. 9 Rockin’ and Rollin’
Announcer: And now it’s time to begin the next match! From the B Block, entering from the West side, we have the enigmatic Sir Raven!
The platform beneath the arena rises slowly, revealing Maikeru in gleaming silver-and-black armor.
Announcer: Sir Raven is a mystery all his own! We have no data of this individual, where he’s from, his true profession, or his background. But, don’t count him out for that, folks! That just means there must be surprises in store!
The crowd claps out of respect as Maikeru takes his place in the arena.
In the stands…
Rin: *frowns, looking through one half of the binoculars* That’s Maikeru, isn’t it?
Mia: *shrugs, looking through the other half of the binoculars* Ehh, yeah.
Kimikay: *jumps up and down in her seat* You can do it, Broth-
Danzo: *places his hand over Kimikay’s mouth* Be quiet, Kimkay! We don’t want to give away Maikeru’s identity.
Kimikay: *pulls his hand down* Oh yeah...*cups her hands to the sides of her mouth* You can do it, creepy mask sword guy!
Rin and Mia: *bust out laughing*
Danzo: *facepalms* Kimikay…
Announcer: And entering from the East entrance, we have none other than the first half of the Breaker Brother’s, the International Tag-Team Titans, Marco the Magnificent!
The crowd screams and cheers as Marco rises out of the ground, posing and flexing his muscles.
Marco: *grins wide, a stupidly egotistic look on his face* Ye-eah! Are you all ready for me to bring the smackdown on this runt dressed in tin foil?
The crowd cheers, ready for the fight to begin
Announcer: Ok, then! Let’s get the show on the roll! Fighters, all set?
Marco: *flexes his muscles* You know it!
Maikeru: *gives the crowd a thumbs up, nodding*
Announcer: Then let’s get things started! Ready? GO!!!
Marco: *stretches his legs out* Ima take you down in no time and advance to the next round. So, I ain’t got time to mess around with to put on a show, but I WILL get a sound out of you from under that mask. *cracks his knuckles* You know what? No. Ima RIP THAT MASK RIGHT OFF YER FACE!!! C’MER RUNT!!! RAH!!! *rushes towards Maikeru, surprisingly fast for a big guy*
Maikeru: *reaches for the handle of his sword* (Alright, here we…go?)
Maikeru is stopped short as Marco looms over him, swinging down a massive fist, aiming for the top of his head.
Marco: HAMMER FIST!!! *smacks his fist on the top of Maikeru’s head, sending the poor guy reeling, dazed*
Maikeru: Gah! *stumbled backwards, grabbing at the top of his head*( Jeez Louise, that hurt a lot…) *draws his sword slowly, trying to right himself*
Marco: *grins wickedly* I ain’t done yet, punk! Take this! CLOTHESLINE CRASH!!!
Maikeru: *looks up through the visor* Clothesline Cra-? *stops, interrupted as the breath is knocked out of him as Marco’s muscular arm slams against Maikeru’s throat and carries him into a bear hug against his chest, constricting him by the throat*
Marco: Heh heh heh….*squeezes tighter* Alright, little piggy, I want you to squeal for me. Squeal and I’ll lettcha go. So, c’mon, little piggy, SQUEAL!!!
Maikeru: *gnashes his teeth together, struggling to break free* Damn you! You’re nothing but…a muscle bound…moron! I’ll never give you…the satisfaction…of my…defeat! *flips his sword into a reverse-grip and stabs backwards, penetrating Marco’s thigh, blood spurting from the wound*
Marco: AHHH!!! *lets go of Maikeru, reaching for his hurt thigh* My leg! You little runt! My leg!
Maikeru: *crashes into the ground as Marco lets him go, groaning before regaining his senses, gasping for air and righting himself on his feet, gripping his sword* M’not done yet, freak! Hyaah! *swings his right knee up, smashing it into Marco’s nose, breaking it with a blood-curdling crack!*
Marco: Gah! My nose! *reaches at his face, blood pouring down from his nose* You broke my nose! My beautiful nose!
Maikeru: Tch. *spits on the ground, coughing a bit* Let’s bring this to an end! *roundhouses Marco across the side of his face, spinning the wrestler’s neck back with a loud pop!, making the crowd sit in silence*
Marco: Gah…*grabs at faces, gripping it tightly and popping it back into place, tears streaming down his face* No one…messes with Marco…THE MAGNIFICENT!!! RAH!!! *lashes out with both hands, slamming them down in a double-guillotine chop against the sides of his neck, stunning him, before grabbing him by the side of the head, forcing Maiekru to drop his sword, and standing up against the pain from his leg* I’m gonna rip yer mask off, shrimp. And them, I’m gonna take my thumbs and claw your eyes out to wear on a necklace! *squeezes Maikeru’s head tighter, making him groan in agony*
Maikeru: *gnashes his teeth together before snarling* No! I won’t let you! There’s no way that I’m gonna lose to the likes of you! *lashes out with his foot, slamming the tip of his armored boot into Marco’s crotch, instantly causing the wrestler to release Maikeru, bending over in pain*
Marco: *coughs, holding himself in pain* M-my….M-m-my…
Maikeru: *sighs, shaking his head* I know, I know…Your crotch. *smashes his elbow into Marco’s abdomen, knocking the wrestler back, sending him reeling onto the ground*
The crowd sits in awe, silenced by the performance, before erupting in a thunderous applause.
Announcer: It’s just one surprise after the other! First Tari’s amazing display of skill against Arthur, and now an equally spectacular performance by the enigmatic Sir Raven! Things are REALLY heating up here, folks! So give it, ladies and gents!

Ch. 8 Bullet Hell
In the stands…
Mia: *leans forward in her seat onto the railing* Wow…Tari’s competing. That’s really something, isn’t it, Rin? *looks over at Rin, grinning*
Rin: *crosses her arms and rolls her eyes* Yeah…*sighs and uncrosses her arms* I hope she knows what she’s doing. Even though she’ll be fighting those other people, there’s still the matter of Tora…
Mia: *leans back and takes a sip of soda from Kimikay’s Mega-Gulp cup* And then there’s Maikeru, too.
Rin: *giggles* This is turning into some sort of soap opera.
Mia: *laughs* Yeah, a really VIOLENT soap opera.
The girls laugh as the loudspeakers flare to life.
Announcer: Ok, folks, let’s welcome our first pair of fighters! From Block-A, entering from the East entrance, we have the Tactical Gunner, Arthur Morgenstern!
The crowd cheers as the platform rises out of the floor, Arthur standing on it, waving at the crowd.
Announcer: Arthur is the son of High General Bryce Morgenstern! He is a top-class student at the Order Academy here in Shaakin! Even though he is a 3rd Year student, at only age 19, Arthur has quickly surpassed most of his class mates and is eligible for a lieutenant position under his father in the 1st battalion! Ladies and Gentlemen, give it up!
Arthur walks off the platform, whipping out his guns and spinning them on his fingers before bringing himself to a ready position.
Below the ground…
Tari: *takes a deep breath* (Ok, Tari, you can do this. Arthur is just like any and other person. He takes pain just like any other person. His bones break just as easily as mine. I can do this!) *nods to the man operating the lift, who begins its ascension just as the announcer begins speaking*
Announcer: And entering from the West entrance is Arthur’s opponent! A new student to the Order, but just as capable as anyone else, we have Tari Night! The Heavenly Fist of Hasen-ko village!
The platform breaks onto the surface as the crowd applauds.
Mia: *hops up and down in her seat* Whoo Hooo! Go Tari!!!
Rin: *claps and cups her mouth* You can do it, Tari!!!
Kimikay: *gnaws on a churo* Yay! Go Tawi!
Announcer: Fighters! This will be a 1-on-1 match! It will be over when one side gives up or is not capable to continue fight! Fighters, are you ready?
Arthur: *nods* Ready.
Tari: *nods* Yes! Ready!
Announcer: The stage is all set! Ready? GO!!!!
Arthur: *chuckles* Hope you know I won’t go easy on ya!
Tari: *frowns and cracks her knuckles* Yeah, yeah… let’s go. *begins her approach on Arthur, a slow lope to a steady jog, which breaks into and a break-neck sprint before leaping high into the air and coming down with a spinning, top like-kick aimed at Arthur’s neck*
Arthur: *ducks down, just out of Tari’s reach, and swiftly rises once she landed on the ground* Whoa there, Tari! Can’t have you breaking my neck so quick into the fight!
Tari: *grumbles* Then, how about I settle for your nose!!! *rushes at Arthur with a furious barrage of punches aimed at Arthur’s face*
Arthur: *begins chanting as he executes each dodge* Front, back, side-to-side. Front, front, back, back, side-to-side. Spin around, bend it back…*smiles deviously at the crowd and winks* And now it’s time to for the counter attack! *flings himself back up, pistol whipping Tari on the bridge of her nose, stunning her*
Tari: *cries out in pain, clutching her bleeding nose* Gah! You bastard! You hit me in the NOSE!!!
Arthur: Well, that was what you were GONNA do, but I BEAT you to it! *laughs*
In the stands…
Mia: She’s not doin’ so good is she? *slight frown of displeasement*
Rin: *sighs and blankly says* Nope.
Tari: AH YOU BUTTFACE!! JUST WAIT TILL I HIT YOU!!!
Arthur: *chuckles* Ah yes well that’s if you can hit me.
Tari: *glares at Arthur* Rrrrrr! I’M GONNA KILL YOU!!!
Kimikay: FIST!! Why you no hit Arthur?! *notices all the food is gone* Danzo!! Why there no food!?
Danzo: *facepalms and sighs* C’mon, Kimikay. Let’s get you some more food.
Kimikay: Yay!!! *grabs Danzo’s hand and drags him down the stairs* Let’s GOOOOOO!!!
Rin: *laughs* He’s basically her babysitter, huh?
Mia: *looks through a pair of binoculars at Tari’s fight* Yup. *winces* Oh man, this isn’t going so well.
Rin: *sighs* Yeah.
Back in the ring…
Tari: HYAAH!!! *kicks out at Arthur with her foot*
Arthur: *steps to the side with a chuckle* So close, Tari. *points his guns at her feet and begins a barrage of shots* But still so far away. Dance for me, Tari! Dance!
Tari: Gah! *steps about nervously, quickly stepping away from the gunfire* Stop doing that you jerk!!! *jumps up and flips over Arthur, her fists glowing with a bright, blue energy* Take this! *thrusts her hands out in a cupped fashion, sending a bright, blue enrgy blast at Arthur point-blank*
Arthur: *his widen as he’s blasted off his feet and sent reeling through the air spinning, before land on his back, a light smoke coming from his coat*
Tari: Hmph. *flicks her hands at the ground, the blue aura dissipating* That’ll teach you to be so ****y.
Announcer: What a furious comeback by Tari! This girl may have started off with a rocky start, but she’s quickly turned the tables on Arthur! Could this be the end?
In the Magistrate’s box…
Lorelei: *covers her mouth with her hand, gasping* Oh, my!
Pyre: *stifles a laugh, grinning*
Capricorn: *nods* Quite an attack. It would appear young Arthur has his work cut out for him.
Bryce: *grits his teeth, nodding slightly* Indeed. (Get up, Arthur. Stop toying with this little girl and finish the match.)
In the stands…
Rin: *claps her hands together* Yes! That was great!
Mia: *thumbs up* Nice attack! Oughta teach that ****y bastard not to underestimate his opponent.
Kimikay and Danzo return with two massive piles of concession stand food.
Kimikay: *noms on a hot dog* We saw it on dah tehveh. *downs the hot dog * Sis’s attack was awesome!
Danzo: *looks over at the fight, his gaze resting on Arthur* He’s not done. Not by a long shot.
Mia: *frowns* You’re right about that, Danzo.
Rin: Lemme take a look. *pulls the binoculars over, looking through the lenses at the field*.
On the battlefield…
Arthur: Urrr…*stirs on the ground, rising up and dusting his coat off* Well, that was quite unexpected, Miss Tari.*grips his pistols tightly* But playtime, miss…*the seal of the Order on the back of each of his gloves begin to glow with a blue light* IS OVER!!! *a blue aura begins to glow around him as he holds both pistols out at Tari, each arcing with electricity, and pulls the trigger, firing off to powerful, energy-charged shots*
Tari: GAH!!!! *leaps and rolls out of the way as the shots zoom past, blasting into the wall, now missing a chunk* Holy crap!!! *dirt and debris scatter over Tari, causing her to cough* (Wh-what is this? How could he keep this much power concealed and still remain calm?)
In the stands…
Mia: Oh my God!!! *looks through the binoculars with one hand, while stealing Kimikay’s popcorn with the other, munching on it* What ish dat guy?
Rin: *growls silently* I always KNEW there was something strange about him.
Danzo: *frowns* This Arthur is not unlike some of the experimental soldiers Ija and I fought back in the Ju-Tao war. The enemy tried to harness the power of mana, the energy that magic wielders use to cast their spells, and infuse it into their soldiers to increase their fighting abilities.
Mia: *looks over at Danzo, taking another handful of popcorn, much to Kimikay’s annoyance* So, what’s that got to do with that trigger-happy freak fighting Tari?
Danzo: *crosses his arms* With the Ju-Tao warriors, they became addicted to mana, driving them to a sort of hunger. Sure, the power they had was great, but eventually, they were starved of the power their bodies now craved. But now…*looks down at the battlefield* Now it would appear the Order has taken what the Ju-Taos’ started and improved it.
Kimikay: *looks up at Danzo, jerking the giant popcorn bucket away just as Mia tries to take more* But, does Sis still have a chance?
Danzo: *frowns* Perhaps. It will be a long shot, but, yes, she still may.
Kimikay: *cups her hands to the side of her mouth* You can do it, Sis!!!
Down in the fighter’s area…
Maikeru: *watching Tari’s fight on the screen* (C’mon, Tari! Pull it together!)
Back on the battlefireld…
Arthur: *approaches Tari through the smoke* Time to wrap things up here…*points his left hand gun at Tari* This won’t kill you, but it’ll still sting quite a bit. It’s been real, Tari, but this is the end. Goodbye. *pulls the trigger, releasing another burst of energy*
Tari: (No!) *rolls to her left, and, quick as a flash, rises up with a strong uppercut, nailing Arthur under the chin, sending the gunner reeling*
Arthur: *wipes the blood off of his bleeding lip with the back of his glove, rising up off the ground* I thought I’d scared you silly, but it appears I was wrong. You’re more talented than I thought, and I commend you.
Tari: *smirks, clenching her hands into fists and holding them in front of her* Why thank you, Arthur. So kind of you to SAY!!! *sprints toward Arthur before going into a jumping cartwheel-kick, aiming to drop her heel onto his head*
Arthur: *leaps back, his glove seals glowing a bright blue as he launched another shot where Tari’s feet will touch down, creating a sheet of ice*
Tari: Eeek!!! *slips and falls on her butt, rubbing her rear* Owie…
Arthur: Hmph. *his glove seals glow a bright orange, flames dancing around the barrels as he fires off a shot of flames*
Tari: Ahh! *rolls to the side, causing the shot to hit the ice, melting it and putting her in puddle of water* Jeez, what else can you do?
Arthur: *chuckles* This. *his glove seals change to a bright yellow as electricity arcs up the barrels before firing an electric bolt into the puddle, zapping Tari*
Tari: AHHH!!!!! *convulses sharply before collapsing, crumpled in a ball, a light smoke arising from her clothes*
In the stands…
Rin: *gasps* Oh no…
Mia: *reaches for Kimikay’s popcorn, grabbing a handful* Tari! *shoves the snack in her mouth*
Announcer: Ahh! That was quite an attack! They don’t call him the “Tactical Gunner” for nothing! Could this be the end, ladies and gentlemen?
Back on the battlefield…
Arthur: *walks over to Tari on the ground in a crumpled heap, pacing around her before bending down to check whether she is unconscious*
Tari: *grits her teeth* (It hurts…it hurts so much…But, I gotta...get up! I gotta!)
Arthur: *in a low tone* That should keep you down long enough for a T.K.O. It wasn’t as strong as a REAL lightning strike, but, a minute is enough. *holsters one of his guns and reaches down slowly for her chin to look at her face to see if she’s completely unconscious*
Tari: *thinks back to her teachings at the academy with her fighting instructor* (Master…you always said I could use my chi to keep the energies within flowing and direct it outward! I can do it! I can!) *concentrates her chi and gathers the remnants of Arthur’s electric power and channels it into her hand*
Arthur: *lift’s Tari’s chin, smirking* Looks like I’ve got this one in the bag-
Tari: *opens her eyes suddenly and cries out, swinging her chi charged hands at the arm Arthur has extended to hold her face, slamming her hand into it and releasing the energy whilst causing the arm to bend back at an ackward angle with a bone-crunching snap!, causing the bone to break and protrude under the skin, causing Arthur to scream out in pain*
Arthur: Gah! *clutches at his broken arm before looking Tari, snarling* Why you! You’re gonna regret this, Tari! *raises the other gun and fires off a normal shot*
Tari: *rolls out of the way and balances herself onto her hands before slashing her foot upwards, smacking into Arthur’s chin and knocking him into the air, after which following up with a barrage of kicks before knocking him into the ground with a spinning, heel drop and landing in a crouched position*
Arthur: *lands on the ground with a loud thump!*
The arena remains quiet before erupting in an uproar of applauding and shouting.
Announcer: Oh WOW!!! What a comeback! I’ve never seen such a vicious counterattack! Not to mention, she managed to psyche out the “Tactical Gunner”! Maybe he should have rethought his strategy before underestimating this blooming flower of a fighter! Give it up, folks, for Tari Night! GIVE IT UP!!!
Tari: *waves to the crowd, nervous at first, before jumping up and down*
In the stands..,
Rin: *claps her hands together, jumping up and down* She did it! She actually did it!
Mia: *hugs Rin* There was no doubt whatsoever!
Kimikay: *gnaws on a cheese-covered pretzel* Yay Shish!!!
In the Magistrate’s box…
Pyre: *shrugs her shoulders* Looks like that girl had some fight in her after all.
Lorelei: *takes a sip of water* That was quite a show. *looks over at Bryce* Though, I was so sure Arthur was going to win. *looks back at the field* Things can change at any time on the battlefield.
Bryce: *scowls at Lorelei as she turns back to the field, clenching his fists together* Yes. He did his best. That’s all we could have hoped for.
Capricorn: *runs his finger around the rim of his goblet, staring down at the battlefield at Tari* Curious…Very curious…
Lorelei: *looks over at Capricorn* What’s curious, your Excellency?
Capricorn: *runs a hand through his beard* That girl. The one called Tari. On the surface, she would appear to be nothing more than an innocent, young girl. But, it would seem that beneath that calm and shy demeanor, lies a fighter with a dormant power and hidden potential.
Lorelei: *blinks twice quickly before looking back at Tari exiting the fighting area* Oh! I-I see, your Excellency! She does seem quite special!
Bryce: *crosses his arms* Hmph. Indeed.
Capricorn: *chuckles and turns to Bryce* Oh, don’t let it get you down, my friend! Your son fought quite well. This defeat, and perhaps that nasty injury too, will teach him to better evaluate the battlefield and the situation at hand.
Bryce: *nods slowly* Yes, Excellency. I’m sure it will.
