    A Storm is Brewing... (Closed)

    *Thunder rumbled as the young Warrior stepped onto the battlegrounds early in the evening. A dark, ominous cloud was forming on the horizon- the perfect day for a spar. An unusual amount of anger had built within Nikka over the last few hours since an incident in the Council Room and she needed to fuel that to grow stronger in the Dark Side. Unclipping her saber hilt, Love's Pain from her belt, she began to pace restlessly, waiting to see if anyone would show up.*

    And what if Talus shows up?

    *She sighed as she thought to herself...*

    Sten walks into the room. Bored out of his skull, he figured that a spar might kill that boredom.

    "Let's go."

    Posted by Nikka on 09-05-2002 01:40 PM:

    *Nikka smiled and nodded to Sten as he approached her. It had been some time since she had seen him, but this would not be a time for pleasantries and simply looked upon him. Her emerald green eyes shone with the heat of battle. She was ready.*

    "Good evening, Sten. It has been awhile. Would you like to make the first move, or shall I?"

    Posted by Sten the Chimp on 09-10-2002 05:55 PM:

    "Ladies first."

    *The Warrior simply nodded and depressed the activation button on the
    chrome-plated saber hilt.*

    *She felt rather nervous but quickly suppressed the jittery feeling. It was, however her first spar as a warrior and she had every reason to feel first time jitters, but she knew her instincts would kick in and would overcome it.*

    *With no further hesitation, Nikka decided she would start out simple as she has in her past training sessions. Lunging toward Sten, Nikka's saber blade slashed across his abdomen while her right foot sweeps underneath his legs to try and knock him of his feet.*

    Sten saw the saber try and slide across is stomach, but he bent forward, narrowly missing the blade. As she goes to trip him, he uses her kicking momentum to help him spin into a backflip. He lands and plants his feet, using the Force to hit her in the middrift with a solid, hard punch. He reveled in the music of the wind coming from her lungs and the sight of her flying back about ten feet before hitting the ground with a hard thud.

    *Nikka let out a cry as she flew back and hit the ground hard. Quickly rising to her feet, she charged at Sten, lightsaber gripped firmly in her hand. Stopping about two feet from him, she pivoted on her right foot, (as a roundhouse) snapping her head around as she did so to get the target: His chin. When her left foot met with it, just under the jaw bone, her right foot landed firmly on the ground. As her feet planted, she sliced her saber blade at his left kneecap.*

    As her foot struck him under the chin, Sten fell. He could tell by the sound of her movement and the hum of her lightsaber that she was going for his left kneecap. He continued to fall, his hands stopping his fall. He used that same target, the left leg, to grip her left leg in his opposable feet. Barely using the Force, as well as the recoiling spring of his own arms and other leg, he yanked her leg out from under her. She fell, and as she did so, Sten sprung up into the air, landing both feet solidly on her stomach. He heard the air escaping from her lungs and jumped again. After the two stomach stomps, Sten backflipped and landed perfectly, about ten feet from Nikka. He fell into a loose, undefensive stance.

    *Nikka felt herself fly back once again and let out a sharp gasp of air as she landed flat on her back. Then as Sten's feet mashed in her abs twice, she groaned, knowing her stomach muscles are going to be bruised very badly. Hearing him land as his feet met the groud, she stood up. She already began to feel a little worn down, but had to let it pass.*

    "I can see you're going to give me quite a run around."

    *She chuckled as she moved toward him again. As she halted directly in front of him, lunging forward, gathering all of her strength to stab forth with her saber blade toward his chest. Keeping her grip on the saber blade with her right hand, Nikka's free hand (left) met across Sten's left temple.*

    Sten ducked backwards, narrowly missing the saber's glowing blade. He felt the blow hit him, and simply ignored the pain it caused, but used the momentum it offered. He spun counterclockwise, kicking his left leg out as he fully revolved. Instead of kicking her, he grabbed her face with his hand and smashed it into the ground. He saw a bit of blood start to trickle from her lips. He brought his face down to hers and spoke.

    "Of course. It's my job to give you the run around. Otherwise you wouldn't get anywhere."

    Sten wiped the blood from her lip before flipping and waiting about ten feet away.

    *Nika's face hit the ground with a brute force. She winced slightly before Sten began to wipe the blood from her lip. She smiled slightly and then stood up as he flipped back took his defense stance. Running toward him again, Nikka thought it was time to break in the Sith Blade given to her by her master, Dara Shadowtide, and withdrew it from her belt. Leaping into the air about four feet from Sten, she flipped into a forward somersault. Before landing face to face with her opponent, Nikka gripped the blade's handle firmly with her right hand, her ignited saber still in her left and sliced downward with both simultaneously at Sten's shoulder/chest region.*

    Sten got an idea. He crouched and rolled backwards to avoid the blades. He saw them both strike ground, but he kept rolling. While rolling, he began to focus on making the molecules in her saber and sword hilts move faster. This caused some heat to form in her hands. At first it wouldn't be to noticable, but the faster the molecules moved the hotter it got. After about ten seconds, the hilts scolded and burned her hands. Instinctively, she dropped them. The saber deactivated as it hit the ground, and the sword clattered loudly. That was what sten was waithing for. He unballed himself and sprung, landing both feet on her chest, knocking her to the ground. He then focused on the Sith Blade, a rather nice looking blade. He cooled the hilt before it snapped to his hand via the Force. He used the momentum to bring the blade underneath her chin, and he pressed the tip of the blade into her until a slight trickle of blood ran from her neck. He grinned at her, showing that he was devoid of any malice towards her. After all, this was just training and for fun, to keep him from dying from boredom....

    "This is a very nice blade. I might keep it. It'd had a lot to my collection....."

    OOC: Do we have dorms here? I didn't notice a place for one here at the new forums......

    As the chrome plated hilts of her weapons began to heat up, Nikka let out a small cry as they burned her hands and then tossed them to the ground. Just as Sten knocked her to the ground, she took the hit to her chest as he stomped into her once again and grimaced slightly as her own blade was pressed into her neck. She chuckled and winked at him after he spoke about keeping her blade.

    "We'll see about that."

    With that, Nikka quickly gathered a handful of dirt and dust in both hands and flung them into Sten's eyes while using a slight Force push to knock him backwards. As he tumbled back, she reached out with a tentacle of the dark side and grasped the blade out of his grip, taking it into her own along with her lightsaber hilt.

    The dirt stung Sten's eyes. But while they hurt Sten simply ignored the pain. He couldn't see, but then again, he didnt need his eyes. He had the Force. He concentrated, and flipped to his feet. With the anger in him, Sten used it to pick up the wind. As the wind picked up, he swirled it, picking up dirt from the ground. Sten began flinging it into the body of Nikka. Meanwhile, he pulled back some dirt, and heated it it the wind, to red hot levels, until it began to solidify into glass. Sten flung the shards of glass at Nikka, and saw a few bite into her skin.

    Nikka's skin burned as the wall of debris and glass pummeled harshly against her flesh. Blood began to spill out from many of the shards of glass pierching into her skin. She kept her eyes closed and kept her head low though to prevent any of the objects from impacting on her eyes. As the wind began to subside just a bit, Nikka focused her energy onto a pile of medium to large sized rocks about 4 yards from her location, Sten being located not far from that. With hard concentration on the Dark Side, the Warrior raised her hands into the air, blocking everything out in her mind but Sten and the rocks. With the flick of her wrists toward his location, the boulders began thrashing against his body with almost a moderate impact, raining down on him like a hailstorm...

    Sten felt two rocks hit him. They stung. He didn't even worry about it. He summoned up a Force Wall, watching as all of the rocks slammed into it. As the rocks struck, Sten gripped them, holding them within the wall. Once all the rocks were held into the wall, Sten used a powerful Force Push to fling the wall at Nikka. As the wall moved towards her, Sten utilized the wind, picking Nikka up from the ground and hurling her into the wall.

    Sten began to feel slightly tired. Why now?

    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 11-04-2002 01:01 AM:

    Nikka fell hard to the ground after being slammed into the wall with Sten's Force push. Blood spilled from her mouth as she lay there, flat on her back, her body badly bruised, barely having the strength to stand. It was apparent that Sten was about to defeat her in her first spar as a Warrior. She was very disappointed in herself...

    As she stood there, she had to brace herself against the wall to keep from falling over as she was so drained from the massive hits to her body. She sensed a weakening feeling in Sten though and felt it was time to wrap this up.

    "Great spar, my friend... but I ... think..." She spoke weakly and then suddenly fell to the ground again, drained. Sten would have to move fast and get her to the medbay.

    (OOC: Sorry it took me so long to post... I've had a bad case of writer's block over the last few weeks. I'll make it up to ya, I promise. )

    Posted by Sten the Chimp on 11-04-2002 09:20 PM:

    Sten frowned as she fell. He scooped her up, slowly, and walked to the medbay in his own chambers. He found them more effective. He sat her in the gel and activated the machine. He then got in, and sat in a separate one next to hers. He submerged himself fully, feeling the pricks of the needles, injecting hormones that would hopefully prolong the life of his cells and midi chlorians. He meditated, feeling his wounds, what minimal ones he had sustained, healing. He hoped that Nikka would be ok....
