    Teeth? You Don't Need Those...

    Post by Zurg on Fri Jun 04, 2010 9:34 pm

    Knuckles cracked and bones popped, the Evil Emperor Zurg waited on a bench and finished getting his joints snapped into place. It was a perfect day to offer up a good, ol'e fashioned butt-whooping, and when there was pain to be had, Zurg was ready to serve it out with malicious glee. He had chosen the aptly named "Fight Club"; the one you apparently were never supposed to speak of. It was a modest place, at best, with punching bags, mats, weights, etc. Much like a gym, no? Or...was he just hallucinating? One could never tell on Portal Breach anymore. With a pop of both ankles, he practically chuckled evilly and felt particularly sadistic as his opponent came to mind.

    And today's diner would be none other than Jo, the defenseless, utterly plain-as-bread mechanic.

    "Oh, yes. This will be much fun; much, much, much fun." He said to himself as he looked around, counting the seconds.

    Jo entered the room where Zurg was waiting for her, taking the time to look around first. There was a large blue mat on the floor, benches lining the walls, and punching bags and monkey bars and all sorts of other exercising equipment scattered around. It was like a typical gym--not that Jo had ever really been to a proper gym before--but at least it was different from the room she'd fought in with Jana when she'd last been here.

    "Do you have any idea how hard it was to find this place when you didn't even tell me what it was called?" she said in a conversational tone, walking inside and leaving a bag on one of the benches. She sat down and started to remove her boots. "You're lucky I've been here before with Jana."

    Ahhhh, there was the little meat cake. Resisting the urge to grind a fist into a palm, Zurg put on his best smile and got up, greeting Jo as he normally would anyone with a cordial air.

    "There you are, Jo! I thought you had gotten lost, or worse...had second thoughts." Of course, he knew Jo would never refuse a fight, no matter what, thanks to that stubborn head of hers, but goading her temper would aid her in a fight. To get that adrenaline pumping! Adrenaline was handy, you see! Anyway, he gestured with a hand towards the mat and let out a cocky smirk.

    "Ladies first~!"

    What was the bag for?

    "Second thoughts?" She snorted incredulously, finally removing her boots and stuffing her socks in them. "Yeah, right! I'm going to whoop you, and whoop you good."

    She got to her feet and stripped off her jumpsuit, stuffing it into the bag. Underneath, she was already wearing black shorts and her classic tank top. She turned around to face Zurg, as he gestured that she climb up on the mat first.

    "How... courteous." She cocked a brow, then shrugged, jumping up onto the mat.

    Really. Did she just take off what little protection she had left? Tank top and shorts!? With a sad shake of his head, it was painfully obvious Jo had never been to a training session before. Painfully.

    "Right....Well." Okay, time to get this on the road. While she was down to her skinnies, he was in full-clad armour; hey, can never take chances! Going over to retrieve some gear, he handed her several key things: feet guards, hand guards, a head guard, and a mouth piece. Each one was one-size-fit-all, so she shouldn't have too much trouble.

    "Put these on first, so we don't develop any injuries later on." He instructed, getting onto the mat himself, his boots leaving deep impressions into the foamy material.

    Cosmos, was he going to fight her in his armor? And was he handing her protective gear? Injuries?!

    Okay, he obviously wasn't going to go easy on the rookie. She should have seen that coming.... But that didn't change anything! She'd show him!

    Jo rammed the head guard on with a scowl and strapped on the rest, stuffing the mouth piece into her mouth. She shook her wrists and did some stretches, hopping slightly to warm up.

    "Come on," she grunted, pounding her fists together. "Let's start."

    "As you wish."

    He did a little mock bow and took several steps backwards, giving them plenty of space. With a crack of his shoulders, he watched her pound her fists together in the universal sign of 'ready', and stood at ease casually.

    "Come on, then; hit me. Let's see what you can do."

    Ugh, so he was goading her now, was he!? Well, two could play that game!

    "Oh, okay. 'Cause I thought I was supposed to wait for your signal, but I guess you aren't in charge, huh." It was hard to speak with the mouth piece in the way, but she managed it, if only to see his scowl grow wider. She loved chafing his hide like this.

    True to her word, Jo charged forwards and ducked slightly, ramming her shoulder into his gut, remembering that he also had under-armor on and it'd probably hurt more to punch or elbow him instead of just try to force him to the ground.

    "What was that!?" Zurg practically barked, barely budging. Did she just try to ram him with her shoulder!? Oh, she had lots to learn! With a masterful flurry of movements, he used her momentum against her and side-stepped, ducking his shoulder into her gut and tossing her over in a quick, silent flip.

    Whether he missed or hit, he didn't bother to see, so he promptly began to give her advice.

    "Rule One and Two: Never, ever get too close to the opponent. That will leave you open for more damage, so distance is advised! Two! Never, ever, ever get into a position where you are forced to the ground. Your opponent will have a considerable advantage and will take it without hesitation; like so." And to prove his point, he didn't waste any time and pressed the heel of his boot into her neck.

    It was soft enough to avoid damage, but firm enough to send his message loud and clear.

    "Understood?"

    Jo wasn't even sure what happened. One moment she was ramming her shoulder into his gut, the next she was on the ground with his foot on her throat. What a great start to their lesson.

    "Got it," she grunted, pushing his foot aside and rolling back to her feet. She rubbed her neck experimentally, but no lasting damage had been dealt. Craters, that had been so embarrassing.

    She raised her arms again in a fighting stance, but this time made sure to keep her distance, circling him warily and looking for an opening she could take advantage of. Maybe she could try to hit him somewhere where he was exposed, somewhere like... his face.

    She took one step forwards and lashed out with a kick, swinging her foot into the side of his face.

    Well, he had to give her credit. She certainly had spunk and attitude. If only she could focus it into something productive.

    Almost as if he read her like an open book, the Evil Emperor saw her kick coming seconds before it happened and he simply ducked; but he didn't stop there. Oh no. As soon as her foot arced over his horns, he hooked a firm hand onto the ankle and tugged. Hard.

    If this worked, she would fall flat onto her back.

    But again, he didn't wait to see if damage was done and he only went on to give more advice.

    "I admire your tenacity, I really do..." Zurg began, standing over her with hands upon knees. "...but it's also best that you size your opponent up first. Get a feel for them before you randomly throw out moves. Fighting requires thinking, you know. Here, I'll even help you out. If you want to know a good move against me and my armour, my weak points are behind my knees and right at the ribs; here. Got that?"

    Maybe this will help her out a bit.
