  • A Little Less Conversation .. [Talus]

    A Little Less Conversation .. [Talus]

    Lina entered the training grounds, her eyes flashed a light, crystal red as she walked in. Her dress was torn up more after the fight with Dara, but it didn't really matter. The time had come for her to fight someone new. She knew she was ready, and she knew she was willing. A smile played upon her lips .. What fun I will have.., she thought to herself. Then again she didn't know who this Sith chosen by her master was .. this Talus Invictus. Whoever he was, she was ready .. and she knew so ..

    She then tossed back her dark blood-red hair and waited for the one known as Talus to come forth and spar with her ..

    Talus had recieved a message asking him to report to the training grounds with his saber. Talus' was unsure on who or what it was he was going to meet but he was bored and had nothing better to do, so he complied.

    As the large man moved through the training grounds, his steps were light and cat-like. His size belied his speed and agility, Talus' body was created and conditioned to be a multi-purpose weapon, a wicked balance of immense strength, incredible durability and suprising speed, agility and flexabilty. Talus would be a formidable warrior when his training with Lord Darkstar was complete, but even now he was not someone to be taken lightly.

    I wonder what's going on... He thought as he entered the training grounds. Then he saw a red-haired woman standing in the center of the room. He nodded his head in respect.

    "Greetings miss, my name is Talus Invictus, I'm supposed to be meeting someone here about this time. Do you know what this is about?"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-13-2002 06:26 PM:

    "That I be, yes."

    Lina glanced up and smiled gently at Talus. She then made her over to him, her bottom portion of her dress swayed slowly. Her red hair had covered half of her face, every second a flash of red had appeared.

    "I'm Lina Capulet, and the reason you're here is because it's the request for you to spar with me." She said clearly and to the point.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Talus raised his eyebrow at the words of the young lady, he was nearly twice her size and she appeared younger than him.

    "A pleasure..." He managed, as he shook her hand. Taking off his long over coat he revealed his atlas-esque frame and his prized posession, Clavis Neco, his dragon saber.

    "Are you sure about this Miss Capulet? I'm not saying that I doubt your abilities, I'm just saying that I've never fought a girl before and I'm not sure ..." Talus stopped and looked at Lina, who was he to judge her and her fighting abilities.

    "Whenever you are ready." He said sheepishly.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-15-2002 05:57 PM:

    Heh .. never fought a girl .. ?

    She couldn't help but let out a slight chuckle, as she turned around to hide it. Lina then planted a swift high kick to Talus' jaw, and quickly unsheated her silver saber.

    "Well then," she began, and slowly got into position, "you're going to have to fight me ... unless you're too chicken enough to hit a girl." She taunted, and charged forward towards Talus, delivering a direct hit towards his stomach with her saber.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Talus felt the sting of pain in his chin, the blow turned his head for a second, catching him completely by suprise. But he got a sudden feeling of danger as he heard the snap-hiss of an ignited saber and turned to see Lina rushing him. Talus quickly side-stepped the oncoming red-head as a matador would a rushing bull.

    "Who says I have to hit you to beat you?" He laughed as he took a hand full of her long crimson hair and whipped her backwards to the ground.

    Stepping away from her, the goliath of a Sith reached behind him and took his Dragon-saber into his hands. The dark, jade hilt was impressively carved in the shape of a dragon with its wings tucked back. With but a thought the mouth of the ornate hilt opened and an emitter emerged, as well as a ruby activation switch. Talus' thumb slid over the jeweled switch and depressed it.

    Snap-hissss....

    The crimson blade, emitted from the dragons mouth like a bright line of fire. Spinning the blade once in his hand Talus turned sideways towards Lina. He let the tip of the blade kiss the stone floor of the training area, with his left arm he outstetched it towards Lina with his palm facing upwards, and then motioned for her to advance again.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Lina felt her hair being yanked, and her body being thrown backwards. She slid for an instant, but managed to flip herself back up again to her feet, saber still locked in one hand. She chuckled a bit at Talus' remark, and readied her saber.
    Dara had yanked her hair and thrown her before, it was something she was used to. She then charged forward, and leaped up, as she grew closer to him her foot gave a sharp kick to his chest, sending him a few metres back. She then landed, and with lightening speed, charged quickly towards Talus, her saber aiming a downward slice upon the giant-like Sith.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 10-19-2002 01:06 PM:

    Talus took a few steps back as her foot struck him in the chest, each of his mammoth strides took up nearly a meter with each step.

    "Ummph" As he grunted he raised his right hand and blocked the downward saber slash, his left arm shot up, palm facing her chest only a mere centimeters away. The force surged through his body and suddenly an invisible wall slammed into Lina's chest throwing her back five meters.

    "Seems like you're having trouble staying on your feet..." He mocked. Approaching her cautiously he looked around for two good sized rocks, finding them he pulled them to him using the force. He kept them above his shoulders using the force as he got closer to her.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-19-2002 06:15 PM:

    Lina got up slowly, trying hard to breathe. She then took in a hard breath .. breathed out .. another hard breath .. breathed out. She glanced up at Talus who was walking towards her with two rocks. She gave him a sly smile, and readied her saber once again, her eyebrows furrowed.

    "Why don't you make the first move this time ?" She requested, getting into her stance.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 10-21-2002 12:24 AM:

    "Not as eager to strike are we?" Talus spoke with a grin. He was intent of defeating the fellow disciple, killing her if he had to, but he saw no need to be anal about it.

    fwwwhhhh... The stone over his right arm accelearted at her with incredible speed. A bead of sweat formed on Talus' forehead as it approached her, he had to concentrate hard to control two things at once with the force. As soon as the first stone left, the stone over Talus' other shoulder shifted to his right and took it's place. Talus contined his slow approach as the first stone moved with pin-point accuracy towards Capulet's face.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-22-2002 09:16 PM:

    Lina swiftly, as if hitting a baseball with a bat, slashed at the rock, letting the remains hit at her piece by piece. She laughed evilly and tossed back her red hair.

    "Is that your best shot ?"

    She gave him a cocky grin, as if asking for it .. which she was. The young red head loved to live dangerously, as usual.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 10-22-2002 10:52 PM:

    As the red-head laughed at Talus' attack he just grinned and mouthed the words; "No this is..." At that exact moment the second rock shot at her face, but this time when it got in saber range Talus focused on the rock, turning it into a fine powder.

    Talus used a force push on the powder and threw it into her face, at the same time he charged his saber coming at her in a diagonal from her left shoulder towards her right thigh.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-24-2002 03:45 PM:

    Lina was blinded by the dust that flew at her face, but swiftly, after hearing the hum of the saber, knew she was going to get hit. She wasn't able to block the strike to her shoulder, but managed to block the hit to her thigh. She payed no attention to the blood, flowing smoothly down her arm, and creating such a mess, she instead kept her eyes on Talus. Her sight soon was normal again, but slightly blurry.
    She quickly pushed him back a few inches, and sped forward, kneeing him in the stomach, and then, shortly after, elbowed him in the face.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 10-24-2002 05:50 PM:

    Talus groaned with the blows as he felt his nose begin to bleed a bit, but he'd accomplished his goal in the attack, draw first blood.

    Taking a step back after the elbow to his face, he came at her again his saber raised above his head in a charge as he got into range, he feinted a downward stroke, suddenly Lina felt her knees lock. Talus used a force push directed at her knee caps to lock them, inhibiting her mobility as he came at her, but instead fo attacking with his saber he lunged forward, driving his shoulder into her mid-section, taking both of them to the ground.

    Talus rolled off to the side and kipped back up to his feet, pointing his saber down at her, she was out of range but he held the saber as if he would lunge to strike her.

    "Nice elbow by the way."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-24-2002 08:41 PM:

    Lina glanced up at Talus and felt blood run down her mouth. She chuckled at her opponent's comment.

    "I aim to please."

    She swiflty jumped to her feet and sped forward again. She then dropped to her feet, her saber still in hand, and tripped Talus, watching him fall back to the ground. Lina then aimed a downward slice towards Talus' stomach at lightening speed.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 10-25-2002 12:22 PM:

    Talus spun his saber over his body in an attempt to block. The attempt was a partial success, his stomach was not ripped open by the saber, but rather he felt the tip of the blade bit into his side as he knocked it away.

    "Son of a..." He growled as rocked on to his shoulders, both of his legs wrapped tightly around Lina's neck. Using his massive frame's powerful center of gravity he rolled, tossing Lina across the training hall. Standing he touched his side and felt the sticky wet warmth of his own blood.

    He charged her as she attempted to rise again as he approached her he leapt, intent on burying his knee through the small of her back. Taking advantage of her saber wound, he knew her injured shoulder would keep her saber out of this attempt.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-26-2002 12:28 PM:

    Lina swiflty jumped to the side as she noticed Talus' leap. She grunted a bit, noticing how hard it was going to be to use her saber at that moment. She grinned slyly at her opponent and flipped back her red hair.

    "Fetch ..."

    She then focused hard on Talus' weapon .. she smiled in progress as the weapon flew out of his hand and to the other side of the training grounds. It landed, half dug into the ground. She watched as Talus made an attempt to get it, and then focused on the sharp jagged rocks behind her. She held out her hand towards Talus and focused her mind one her one true enemy ... her fiancee. With that, a red glow covered most of the jagged rocks ... little by little they lifted ... and with a nod, in groups, the rocks flew at Talus with lightening speed ..


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 10-27-2002 10:24 AM:

    Although Talus wanted his saber back, he never forgot about his opponent, sensing the smaller disciples force signature increase he spun to see the shards of rock speeding towards him. He arched back, allowing most of the projectiles to pass by him, he continued moving as the lower ones approached him, he felt something bite into his arm, then his leg, then something ripped across his chest.

    "Oww!" He said as he lost focus for a second and fell to the ground. As he hit, he spun on his back and gripped his saber. With one might pull it came free. He then attached it to his hip.

    "Nice.... but here catch this." As he finished speaking he gripped tightly to a chunk of broken pillar, using the force to increase his strength, far beyond that of his own natural abilities, he lifted the rock and held it above his head.

    "Umpph...." And the rock went up into the air but Talus wasn't done yet. He took out his dragon saber and ignited it, swinging his blade at the rock. Slicing the projectile into many smaller projectiles. He then used the force to fire these chunks of projectiles into an arc that would rain a hail storm of stone upon his opponent. Gripping his saber firmly, he waited for an opening to strike.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-29-2002 03:00 PM:

    Lina grabbed her saber with the injured hand, trying to hard to block each rock that flew down, by spinning it in front of her, creating a small shield. She managed to block most of them, but others hit her legs and arms, making small cuts or dust marks. She then leaped up suddenly, landed and jumped again, using her cat-like reflexes. She then made a direct kick to Talus' neck.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 10-30-2002 03:30 PM:

    Talus arched his back and fell to the ground, the blow missed because of his willingness to hit the dirt. Spinning he locked his legs around Lina's support leg and dragged her down to the ground. Talus rolled back to his feet and smiled.

    "Relentless aren't we?"

    She was good, very good. He was impressed with both her speed and determination to fight while wounded. He then felt a sharp pang in his side, reaching down he realized that he too was wounded, the andreniline rush of battle had allowed him to ignore the pain. Quickly he rushed her, his intention was to apply as much pressure to her wounded arm as possible, in an effort to disarm her and then finish her off.

    As he got into range he attacked low on her injured side, then as she blocked he spun the blade upwards. He would make her put the shoulder through the entire range of motion until she could no longer use that arm.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-31-2002 03:27 PM:

    Lina had realized it soon enough that Talus was trying to hurt her arm permanently, and swiftly sped forward and directed a kick at his side, throwing him off for a bit. She then tried to slash at his side, but due to her weak arm, missed as he quickly jumped back. Straight after her dodged the attack, she made a sideways slash at Talus' stomach .. this time actually making a mark. She then kicked him one last time in the stomach, sending him back a few feet.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-01-2002 12:14 PM:

    Talus again felt the bite of her saber, it ran across his stomach, not a deep wound, but it burned none the less. As he winced he felt a sudden pressure as she kicked him backwards.

    "Enough!" He roared, he charged forward at her again. His saber came hard and fast at her wounded shoulder, directly at the first wound he'd created. As the blade came at her again, his pivoted on his left foot and came around with his right foot behind her, intending to take her leg out at the knee.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 11-01-2002 02:18 PM:

    Lina felt the pain to her arm from Talus' saber. But managed to quickly dodge his upcoming attack, gently rolling onto the side. She huffed some and managed to pick herself up again. She wasn't willing to give up now, even if her arm was badly injured.

    She then charged forward, and kicked it multiple times in the stomach, all of them were directed towards his wound in the center. She then finished it off by kneeing him roughly in the stomach again, and elbowing him in the face, sending him back a few. After this, Lina tried to catch her breath, for the wound was slowly, little by little, starting to take effect on her ..


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-01-2002 07:19 PM:

    The pain in his stomach was horrendous, but not enough to stop him. Picking himself up he attacked again at her shoulder, but this time he feinted with his right arm a swipe at her shoulder and instead gripped her firmly by the throat with his left, lifting her up off the ground.

    Suddenly he tossed her back violently and moved onto her prostrate body, kicking her viciously in the ribs. Then he backed way and held his saber in a defensive position.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 11-04-2002 08:11 PM:

    Lina choked slightly, and got up, holding her hand against her rib cage bitterly. She then picked herself up, glaring at Talus. It hadn't hurt her as much as it looked, since she was used to all of this kind of abuse.
    Her saber was still in hand, but her arm was getting weak, due to the lose of so much blood, and the many blows Talus had delivered to it.
    Lina then ran forward with great speed, and dropped in front of Talus, locking her legs around his neck, and grabbing his hands, making him lean down a bit. She then jerked his neck to the side, and after hearing a loud snap, kicked him in the neck again. She then hopped back up with her saber in hand, waiting for his next move.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-04-2002 08:49 PM:

    Talus stood and moved his neck in the opposite direction Lina had wrenched it, cracking it loudly.

    "Much better..." He grinned. Slowly he moved towards her, as he got closer he raised his hand and dust and debris began to rise all around him. The closer he got, the larger the cloud became, suddenly he pushed all the debris at Lina, it formed a haze that was nearly impossible to see through. Jumping to his left he charged her at the spot where she'd been standing.

    His saber came down quickly and violently.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 11-06-2002 03:56 PM:

    Hearing the hum, she swiftly sped to the side, and then leaped up and away from the huge cloud, not willing to give up. After landing in clear area, she sped forward, trying to follow the humming sound of Talus' saber. She then spotted his shady figure within the midst of the cloud, and with great speed, placed both her hands on his shoulders, and kneed him roughly in his stomach wound with both knees, and kicking him in the back straight after, making him end up flat on the floor. Straight after, she made a sideways slice with her saber at Talus' back, when he was still down.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-06-2002 04:16 PM:

    Talus rolled quickly from right to left as he heard the direction of the hum come as he laid on the ground. The blade narrowly missed and Talus was soon on his feet and Lina would soon be off hers.

    He kicked her square across the back with his huge left leg, putting enough of his weight behind the blow to send her stumbling forward. He then stepped behind her and gripped her tightly around the waist, in one mighty jerk he lifted her high over his head and fell backwards, releasing her as he fell. Lina's light body sailed over him and crashed a few meter's behind him squarely on her shoulders and neck. Talus kipped up and called his saber to him.

    "Little trick I picked up prize-fighting..." He grinned.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 11-12-2002 03:25 PM:

    Lina had fallen back a few, but wouldn't let it stop her. After dragging against the dirt, she hopped back onto her feet immiediately and spat to the side .. She then rolled her eyes, and got back into her fighting stance.

    "Show off ..."

    She tightened the grip on her saber, and quickly sped forward, this time at greater speed then usual. As she did this, dust particles and smoke, began to pick up and form clouds, following her as she ran. She then haulted and watched as those thick clouds surrounded Talus. As soon as this occured, she sped forward at tremendous speed again, and slashed at Talus' stomach while he was distracted for that one moment, this time she actually felt the saber dig much deeper into his body then the first wound ..


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-12-2002 05:13 PM:

    Talus groaned in pain as he felt the saber bite a good half inch into his midsection, blood rushed from the wound. But Lina soon learned why she'd gotten her saber to his stomach unhindered as the bit of Talus' saber penetrating clear through her shoulder became painfully obvious.

    He'd intended to do more damage and rip his saber upwards, severing nerves blood vessels and cutting through bone, but the sheer pain and suprise of her saber blow to his stomach caused him to stagger backwards, pulling his saber out cleanly and withouth further damage.

    "Son of a ***** that hurts..." He gasped as he dropped to a knee, the pain in his stomach throbbed, he nearly became lightheaded from it, but it had been worth it, his dare paid off, Lina's dominant saber arm was damaged severely now he just had to keep her from disemboweling him.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 11-13-2002 03:17 PM:

    As soon as Talus dropped to one knee, she kneed him directly in the deep stomach wound. She kept doing so repeatedly, each kick stronger then the one before. She then elbowed him in the face and flipped back, her saber grasped tightly in hand. Her breathing was getting harder, from the amount of blood leaving her shoulder wound, but she shrugged it off and absently rubbed off the pouring blood from her arm .. But with each moment, the pain in it was getting more intense ..


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-13-2002 03:32 PM:

    Talus begin spitting up blood as he rolled over and pushed himself up on his feet. The pain in his stomach was tremendous and his anger was rising, exactly what he needed to perform the next feat. His left hand shot straight out, a force push flung Lina into a pillar and pinned her there. His right hand clutched the wound on his stomach.

    "Hate to use this on you dear but I can't let you keep kicking me in the stomach..." He focused harder, applying more and more pressure to her chest. It would have been as if someone had placed an enormous weight on her body and was adding too it.

    Slowly he kept approaching her, by this time the air would have been pushed out of her body and though he didn't know how to force choke anyone, he was sure that she wasn't getting enough air because her body couldn't expand to let it in. Finally he released her and in a step closed the distance between him and her. His right hand clenched firmly on her saber's hand wrist and his left firmly on her throat, he lifted her using his physcial prowess to driver her back into the pillar once again, then clamping both hands on her wrist he spun and threw her across the room, watching as her limp body skipped, bounced and skidded across the floor.

    Reaching behind him he gripped his saber once again pulling it out and activating it.

    "Shall we continue?"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 11-15-2002 08:10 PM:

    Lina grunted, and slowly staggered to her feet, trying to catch her breath from the sudden throw. As soon as her body regained strength, which was within seconds, she charged again towards him, her saber still in hand. She then locked both her legs on his neck, bent back burying her hands deep in the dirt, making sure they were both secured into the ground. The lock around his neck was tight, and cutting off his air supply. She then flipped him over, and slammed him hard into a bunch of jagged rocks that had been used earlier for another attack she did towards Talus. As hard as it seemed, she managed to pull Talus back up, and slam him onto his front area, hard into another pile of jagged rocks. She then did it one last time, but this time let him fly off to the other side of the training grounds. She then picked herself up, and wiped some blood off her lower lip.

    Though Lina was a small, skinny little thing, she had been trained by another to life weight 100s of times bigger then she was, no matter how badly injured she was.

    She spat some blood to the side, and got into her fighting stance, her saber locked tightly in hand.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-16-2002 11:08 AM:

    Talus fumed as he lay on the ground, his face was bloodied, his chest was bloodied, his back was bloodied, and he was bloody mad. Rising to his feet Talus pulled the force into his body in an instant he was across the training ground. Raising his saber high in the air he came down for a massive strike that would have split Lina in two. But as she moved to block it, Talus did something unorthodox, he deactivated his blade. As his saber would have been locked with Lina's it passed by without a movement.

    "Suprise..." He said as he reactivated the blade and slashed Lina's thigh with it, he was too close to maneuvar the blade for a finishing attack, but he knew that the saber would have bit deep into her thigh.

    With his left hand he used a force pushed directed at her legs, watching as it flipped her in the air. Her blade was still clenched in her hand though and ignited as it passed by Talus it singed the hair on his arms.

    "I'll have to be more careful next time..." He said sadistically as he stepped hard onto her wounded shoulder and then over her. Spinning his blade he inverted his grip on it and stabbed downwards for the finishing blow...


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 11-22-2002 03:36 PM:

    Lina felt huge amounts of blood leaving her thigh, but tried to avoid the pain best she could. She felt Talus' foot holding her weak shoulder, and heard the sound of a saber stabbing downwards. Before it could strike, with big effort she swiftly turned herself around, kicking Talus' leg off her, and rolling to the side.

    "Ugh ...."

    She heard the saber touch the ground. She then twisted herself around and stabbed Talus in the side, much deeper then the other one in his stomach. Slowly she slid the saber out of his side, and fell to her knees, trying to control the amount of pain going through her thigh ..


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'm a big idiot, sorry Lina lol I'll go into Sith Mode now


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-22-2002 03:47 PM:

    Talus felt the saber rip through his side and fell to his knees. He reached down and placed his hand on the wound. It was deep and nasty, he felt the blood ooze from the wound.

    Though he was in pain there was a difference between his wounds and Lina's. Talus had severely immoblized her with his blow to her leg and hampered her fighting style with the wound in her shoulder. Both would lose blood at about the same pace, but Talus' limbs were still fairly unmaimed.

    He forced himself to rise his weapon, stood ready, as he held it to the side. Lina was still on her knees suffering for the blow to her thigh. His respect for her grew greater with ever blow they exchanged. This battle would soon be over, neither would be able to stand much more blood loss without medical attention.

    "Rise Lina, let us finish this..." He grunted as he placed his left hand over his wound.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 11-22-2002 09:19 PM:

    OOC: LoL, you're an idiot ? Really ? Aha, kidding, tis ok.

    IC: Lina heard the words Talus spoke, and at that time she glanced up at him and nodded heavily, trying to focus hard. She slowly picked herself up best she could, her thigh still throbbing in pain. She then sped forward once again, trying the best she could, her saber held up and gripped tightly. It seemed as though she was going to hit another part of Talus' body from the waist up, but instead bent forward, and gave him a surprise stab at his inner thigh. As soon as she did this, she kicked him down with her non-injured leg.

    "There," she spat to the side a bit of blood, "now we're even.."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-23-2002 10:07 AM:

    "Not quite." He growled bac. He sat straight up and ran his saber across her left knee cap. The blade bit into her flesh at least a quarter of an inch. Enough to damage tendons and ligaments.

    Pushing himself up he did something he hadn't done all fight long, he struck Lina with a closed fist. The blow was a wicked upper-cut that came out of no-where as he rose to his full height.

    The young red-head's head snapped back and her feet came off the ground as Talus drove all of his body into the blow.

    As Lina fell backwards Talus stepped towards her and drove his elbow into her ribs as she fell. Falling with her, there was a sickening crack as the collided with the ground.

    Pushing himself back up, he backed away from her to avoid any saber counter-strike.

    Lina laughed insanely, picking herself up from the many blows Talus had delivered. She felt huge amounts of blood trickle from her nose and lip, but just wiped them away absently. Being used to all that pain in the past had really helped her. She noticed how badly injured her knee cap was, and watched as more blood left her body.
    She turned around and noticed two huge boulders not too far behind her. She swiftly stabbed Talus' knee cap on the opposite leg of his bleeding thigh. It was hard to make any attacks with one hand, due to the broken saber arm, so she used both. She then carried her saber to his upper part of the body, and sliced a deep cut across his chest, but not deep enough to kill him, she didn't intend on doing that. Once again she dropped to the floor and locked her legs around Talus' neck, lifting him over her head, and sending him head first into the boulders..

    Talus was heading towards the boulders when he outstretched his hand a powerful push from the force was released and the boulder rolled out of the way. Pushing his outstretched hand downward he caught himself and flipped to his feet. His movements like a cat's.

    "More new scars..." The cut on his chest was a mere flesh wound, Talus' muscular body protected him from deep attacks. The blow do his knee had only done minor damage as he had nearly moved out of Lina's range when she struck.

    Talus moved at her quickly his wounds slowed him down, but his movements were still had more celerity than most. His saber came up and met Lina's, she was fighting with a wounded arm and couldn't move the blade as quickly. Soon her saber was out-maneuvared by his and he brough the blade down grazing her hand that held the blade. A sudden force push against her shoulder cast the weapon aside. Talus flicked his wrist and moved the blade to her neck.

    However instead of finishing the job he deactivated his saber and used a force push to throw her across the room. With another movement he called her saber to his left hand. He held it for a moment inspecting it;

    "A nice weapon... Lina and you used it quite well." He then placed his saber on his belt and tossed her saber to her. If she chose to attack he'd resist or she could accept his offer of a draw. He was wounded as was she and they both needed to take a nice dip in the bacta tanks.

    She caught the saber with little effort, and picked herself up once again. Her head was getting very heavy due to the loss of blood .. and there was really no point of going on like this, unless it was a death battle. She then wiped off a bit more of the blood that trickled out her nose.

    "Let's call it a draw .. shall we ?"

    "A draw suits me fine..." He answered coldly and without emotion. Gone was the fire he had drawn from throughout the spar, instead was what could be described as a jedi-esque calm, though there was nothing about the man that would even remotely link him to a Jedi.

    Walking over he placed his jacket back on and made his way to the med-bay.

    Lina nodded a farewell to Talus, and slowly limped her way out of the training grounds. Bleeding and needing serious, medical attention ..
Working...
