  • Don't breathe...don't look back...the Dark Side of Nature (open spar)

    Don't breathe...don't look back...the Dark Side of Nature (open spar)

    The Sith stepped on the training grounds late that evening. It was such a perfect evening. Thunder clashed, the wind howled. A storm was raging and brewing. The perfect evening for a fight.

    And Nikka's mood was just right for a fight. The past several days have been hardening for her. Emptyness filled her soul. A hollow void of nothingness filled her heart. So her mood was perfect as well as the atmosphere that raged above her head.

    Now was the time for her next spar as a warrior and she would not fail. A message was sent to every available member of the Empire. Nikka awaited to see who would show.

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-13-2002 09:50 AM:

    A tall, dark and handsome prescence entered the trianing grounds, his long hair tied tightly behind his head in a pony tail. He wore a pair of exercise pants, a mesh shirt and a long black leather coat. This was Talus, Nikka's lover and tonight her opponent.

    "Good evening Miss Darkstorm... Lovely night is it not?" He asked casually, as he discarded his coat. Slowly he began to stretch his body out and warm up his muscles. Turning back towards Nikka he grinned.

    "You've been wanting to ***** slap me around for quite sometime... I figured I'd give you the oppurtunity to put an arrogant disciple in his place." He walked up and kissed her passionately on the mouth and then turned around and walked away. Reaching back behind himself he pulled out his dragon saber, the beautiful hilt intricitly carved by Lord Darkstar himself in the shape of a dragon. With but a thought the mouth of the dragon opened and an emitter peaked out, also on the back a beautiful ruby gem, appeared between the wings of the dragon, it was the activation switch. With a mere movement of his thumb, the blade sprung to life and Talus held it out to his right. Turning sideways so that his saber arm was furtherest from Nikka, he raised his left hand and signalled for her to come at him.

    "After you m'love..."

    Nikka felt the force signature of Talus enter the grounds and only grinned. As she turned to face him, she wore the same grin as she watched him remove the coat from his shoulders and then stretch afterwards. Hearing him speak, she only chuckled at his words.

    "Indeed, it is perfect isn't it?" She paused then, letting his other statement sink in. She wasn't that angry with him anymore and only shrugged, but this would prove to be interesting. A 'lover's brawl' always proved to be entertaining to watch.

    Nikka was a little taken by surprise when he suddenly approached and kissed her. She returned the kiss, however. It still felt the same as it always had before. She only smirked as he removed the dragon shaped hilt and activated it and followed suit, removing her own chrome polished hilt from her belt, igniting the crimson blade.

    "Perhaps we could take some aggressions out on each other then, Hmm?"

    The Warrior smiled and watched as he made the motion for her to advance.

    "Very well, then."

    Get ready for the ride of your life, baby. Hahaha.

    Seeing how he was turned sideways, the adept Sith Warrior moved casually toward him, at first facing him, stopping only about 3 ft away almost in reach of his outstreched arm. Stopping at his side, she allowed her saber to slice downward at his kneecap in a horizontal direction, gripping her saber in her right hand. She always started out simple, giving her opponent the impression that she wasn't in much of a mood for advanced moves, but that would prove to be wrong later on.

    In a maneuvar that must have suprised the Sith Warrior, Talus actually stepped towards her body, in a spin, allowing her saber to pass through air and her momentum to place her in front of him. Moving quickly he firmly smacked her across the backside with his left hand, this was followed by a sharp force push, creating seperation between them.

    "I'm sorry I couldn't resist..." He laughed as he came towards her cautiously. It would more than likely be the last time he got a chance to toy with her before her superior training kicked in and she showed him just why she was a Warrior and he still was a disciple.

    With a sudden movement he swung his saber upwards, turning sideways with the blow, reducing the amount of body he left open for a counter-attack and positioning himself away from her strong saber hand.

    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 11-14-2002 01:52 AM:

    Nikka stumbled back slightly from his force push and smirked as she felt the palm of his hand slap her backside. Nikka only laughed at his flirtatious behavior, knowing he was only toying with her, but it didn't bother her in the least.

    Just wait til tonight, I'll show you what a slap can result in.

    She grinned as she thought this and as his saber made contact with hers, Nikka gathered her thoughts to the Dark Side, remembering her training with her master. A cloud of dust was summoned and swiftly hit Talus' body and in the face as well. Watching him stumble backward, Nikka then charged toward him, kicking out with her left foot directly into his stomach.

    (OOC: Hey if this doesn't make sense to you, please let me know. )

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-14-2002 10:35 AM:

    Talus left hand shot to his eyes, trying to wipe the debris from them.

    "Gah...Damn..." Before he could finish the sentence he felt a sharp pressure in his stomach and went tumbling backwards.

    "Why is it that everyone wants to kick me in the stomach, first Lina and now you," He laughed at his lover's choice of attack points, but as he laughed he raised his hand again and used the force to pull her towards him. As she stumbled foward he suddenly reversed the direction of his force attack and blasted her backwards.

    Rising fully to his feet he grinned again; "Shall we continue?"

    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 11-14-2002 05:56 PM:

    Nikka flew backwards as he blasted her, hitting the nearest wall behind her. It nearly knocked the wind out of her but she seemed to take it well. Watching as Talus stood from the ground, she approached him again, adjusting the collar on her sleeveless blouse.

    "Of course," She nodded with a wide smirk. Then out of the blue, the back of Nikka's left hand struck Talus' right cheek, making him stumble back slightly. Afterwards, Nikka raises her saber blade, then moves it vertically in a crimson blur across his midsection.

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-14-2002 10:21 PM:

    Talus side-stepped the upward slash of Nikka's saber and countered with a spinning horizontal attack at her ribs of his own.

    As he moved he began to feel the sting of the slap and joked to Nikka; "So you like it rough do you? Why didn't you ever tell me?"

    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 11-14-2002 10:43 PM:

    Nikka felt the searing tip of his saber slice across her ribs and winced slightly, the cloth of her blouse ripping slightly. She took a step back just a bit and then forward, roughly kicking her knee in his midsection, enough to double him over and knock the wind out of him. Before Talus could stand and regain his balance as she watched him double over, the Warrior then elbowed her mate roughly on his right shoulder blade.

    "Of course. I thought you knew that." She smirked seductively and giggled, taking on a defensive stance. Things were beginning to heat up and Nikka was beginning to feel warmed up as the tensions were rising. This was proving to be a good way for them to take out aggressions now.

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-15-2002 03:27 PM:

    Talus dropped to a knee when the elbow came in his back, it also made it difficult for him to attack with his saber so instead he gripped her leg and leapt back to his feet, flipping her as he did so.

    "My love you should no better to stay with in striking distance of me if you are going to pause in your attack." He coughed, the elbow had done some nasty damage.

    Stepping towards her he swept his saber at her legs, his goal was to incapacitate her or at worst slow her down.

    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 11-15-2002 05:02 PM:

    Nikka breathed inward deeply as he grasped her leg and flipped her backwards. Landing hard on her back, a harsh grown escaped her lips, pain screaming up and down her spine.


    It was all she could utter as it hurt so badly. She managed to laugh slightly at his comments. Then she heard the cry of his lightsaber as it was swung toward her legs. Nikka focused as hard as she could as she still had her lightsaber gripped in her right hand and moved it downward, despite she was still on the ground to block the oncoming blade and parry it to the side. Propping up on her left elbow, Nikka honed in on a certain location with the tip of her boot, swiftly planting it in Talus' groin, taking him completely by surprise.

    "So much for tender romance after a friendly spar," Talus bemoaned as he fell over to the ground clutching himself. He puked as he tried to push himself back to his feet. The bitter taste made him pucker and spit.

    "So that's the way it's going to be is it?" He said as he finally made his way up and called his saber to his hand. He was dazed and couldn't launch a counter-attack until he regained his focus.

    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 11-15-2002 05:35 PM:

    Nikka winced as she saw him double over and vomit. She hated to see him in pain, no matter if they were sparring or not. She still remained lying on the ground on her side and finally made herself sit up, her back still throbbing in intense pain. She stood, just as he made his way over to her. She was almost embarassed. The attack was acted on impulse and instinct. Nikka would go at any length to slow down her opponent, but she never meant to go this far with Talus.

    "I ..didn't...mean..." She panted and tried desperately to catch her breath.

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-15-2002 05:47 PM:

    A sudden movement of his hand a a force blast of immense strength for a disciple was launched at Nikka, apparently Talus' injuries were healing quicker.

    "Don't apologize just fight me..." He laughed. "This is battle and if you don't fight to your best potential I'll kill you, just as I know you'll kill me."

    As he spoke his tone became graver, he meant it, if Nikka was holding back she wasn't brining honor to her master or the empire and Talus would kill her for it, just as he expected her to do to him.

    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 11-15-2002 08:02 PM:

    Nikka's back hit the wall yet again, as well as the back of her head, but with more force this time. She growled, frustrating at being thrown around like a rag doll. The adept warrior made her approach to him again, a fiery glare showing in her eyes. She was not about to be defeated again.

    "You know, you're right...... I am holding back, aren't I..... well, I guess that should change, shouldn't it?" She chuckled and looked down. There seemed to be a solemn look in her eyes, but it was very brief as she made eye contact with her mate and it changed to the same intense glare she wore before. Then, before Talus knew it, her tightened left fist struck his chin in an uppercut, followed by a swift kick with her left foot to his right knee, a snapping sound was heard as she did so. She watched as he stumbled back again and stepped forth once, holding a wide stance, slashing her saber horizontally across his chest.

    "Now I'm not holding back..." she growled. "And I'll not kill you. I might beat you to an inch of your life, but never will I kill you."

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-17-2002 01:03 PM:

    Talus cringed as he felt his knee hyper-extend, that was not good. He counted on his speed to gap the distance between his training and her's. The blow to the chin was absorbed as most shots he took, he was a prize fighter, he knew how to take a punch, even if he didn't see it coming. But what caught his attention the most was the burning sensation he felt as the her saber skipped across the flesh on his skin, searing it as it passed.

    "Good..." He growled. Kicking at her was out of the question, he'd only injure his leg further, but slashing at her leg to slow her down wasn't. A feint attack was directed high at her weak side shoulder, but as soon as he moved in that direction he switched the grip on his blade and spun on his good leg, attempting to drag the saber across his lovers thigh.

    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 11-17-2002 07:21 PM:

    Nikka saw the feint move at her shoulder and stepped back slightly, watching Talus' every move. She then saw him spin and slice his saber down at her leg. She attempted to step back again, but he had already moved too close to her and the tip of his saber slashed into her skin. She cried out and gasped, while grasping at the wound as it bled a little. She tried to keep the weight off of it as it stung with intensity and stepped back again. With that, Nikka saw that his other side was open and gripped her saber firmly in her right hand perpendicular to her body, moving it in a forward slash at his right arm, followed by a back slash at his right leg.

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-19-2002 06:35 AM:

    Talus felt pain, undescribable, unimaginable pain as the saber ripped through his right arm making a deep cut. But in what could only be described as blind luck he stumbled backward and avoided having his leg damaged further.

    "Nice..." He hissed.

    Slowly he switched hands on his saber and prepared to fight again. He was as good with his left as he was with his right, but now he had to prove it.

    But before he attacked again with his saber he did something odd, he levitated 4 shot-put sized stones and made them circle his head. Then he advanced.

    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 11-23-2002 06:43 PM:

    OOC: okay, umm... I took 'advance' as an attack. Sorry. Here's my reply..


    Nikka growled as she saw him walking toward her.. every muscle tensed as he moved closer and closer... Seeing the rocks orbiting his head, she focused mainly on them and used the Force to pull one away from his head as it came back around. As she gripped her saber in her right hand, she levitated the rock over her right, awating the precise moment, then she executed her move... as he neared her she flung the rock at his forehead with aid in the force, whilst slicing her blade across his chest again.

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 11-23-2002 11:12 PM:

    Talus compensated for the lack of one stone in his orbit with the other three. As the stolen stone sped towards his head one of his remaining three intercepted it, destroying both.

    Raising his saber upwards he defected the slash. He attack was sudden and had he not had the other three stones for defense it would have surely suceeded, but as it was he had staved off her attack.

    Always be on guard for the counter...

    He thought as the two remaining stones rocketed toward her ears, but Talus had no intention of using the stones as a weapon they were merely a distraction.

    As the moved towards her, he let their natural momentum take over and focused a force push to knock her out of the way. The stones exploded on contact, creating a screen of debris which Talus used to cover his attack.

    Slashing upward from his right leg to his left shoulder, Talus attacked. He was just a step out of range though and he knew it. Using his forward momentum he spun the blade backwards horizontally at the small of her back and stepped foward, rotating his body so that he would face her should she turn around.

    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 12-01-2002 10:40 PM:

    She allowed him to attack and frankly at this point, she didn't care any longer. He was more advanced than his rank gave him credit for, even way more advanced than her. The wall of debris stung in Nikka's eyes, then the searing blade slashed across her back. She made no move to deflect or counter the attack and simply fell to the ground, too weak to continue. The saber blade was shut down and rolled away from her several feet away.


    He was right. Everyone was right. She was beginning to fall from the weakness of love. Love does not make one stronger and that was the truth, atleast in Nikka's point of view.

    As she lay there, fading, she wondered if he would take her life... or if he would leave her lying there on the ground to die. Looking to him, she managed to mutter in a soft tone.

    "This ends now, Talus. You have defeated a mere Warrior. It shall do good in your favor. I am sure your master will be pleased."

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 12-02-2002 09:32 AM:

    Talus roared in rage... his victory tainted, his honor besmirched, he raised his blade for a death blow but then instead he deactivated it. Tears rolled down his eyes, as the rage built in his chest.

    He dropped to his knees and opened his mouth to scream but no sound emerged, but something else did, the force and in copious amounts. The training hall shuddered and shook under the telekinetic assualt the young disciple was letting loose, uncontrolled and unaware of what he was doing.

    But there was more, not only was it a telekinetic outburst but a mental one too, his anguish was being poured out, at his failures, both to Nikka and to himself. All the pain in his heart, all the rage he had built inside because of the mistakes he'd made with her was being unleashed and Nikka was the only possible receptor. She saw his thoughts, his emotions, things he didn't even know about himself, it all tried to cram itself in her brain at once.

    Then as suddenly as it had started, it stopped. Talus fell face first into the sand and breathed hard. Coughing blood he pushed himself to his feet. He had no idea what he'd just done, all he knew was that his friend Nikka was lying injured on the ground before him.

    "Come we need to get you to the med-bay." He said calmly, as if the battle had never happened.
