    And... he did it again. She should have seen that coming, too. It wasn't as if she could have ever lifted five hundred pounds.

    "Enough, enough," she croaked, pushing off her head gear and wiping the sweat off her brow. "I need a break..."

    She groaned and closed her eyes, not even bothering to get up this time. She just lay there on her back for the fourth time, trying to catch her breath. She wrenched out her mouth piece, swallowing and massaging her jaw. Oh, she was hurting all over. This did not bode well. She was probably going to wake up sore tomorrow morning, covered in huge bruises. She felt like she'd already spent an entire day slaving away on repairs in just under ten minutes of combat.

    "What's your secret, Zurg?" She opened her eyes and looked up at him overhead, pushing her hair out of the way. "How do you do it? Is it all the armor? The bracers? What?"

    "What, you need a water break already?" Zurg laughed, sitting down and crossing his legs to lean forward and relax a bit. Hah, guess Jo was wearing herself out! Seems she needed more physical exercise. Still, he couldn't but laugh. It was pretty funny watching her land upon her back four times! In a row! Ahahaha! But he was going to be a good sport about it, and he got up to fetch a water canister from his own bag. Hey, he had expected this, no?

    "There's no secret, silly dribblesnout!" He grinned, handing her the water bottle. This should help her calm down. "The only secret there is, if it could be called that is continuous exercise and practice! That, and you're a human who hasn't probably gotten into shape for a good few years; not that I'm making fun of your weight. That's mean, you know." He finished, shooting her a look with a raised arch.

    "But if you must know, the secret really is experience. If you've noticed, I haven't gotten you into traditional combat; or rather, forms." He went on to explain, sitting beside her somewhat. "Forms are nice in theory, but they limit you on something crucial to all combat: adaptation. I find that the best way to learn fighting is through actually getting into the ring and trying it out. You learn on your toes real quick when threatened with punches to the face."

    She decided to swallower her pride this time around and gladly took the water bottle from him, finally sitting up and gulping down a good half of the cool, refreshing liquid. Some even dribbled down her chin in her haste to drink, and she wiped at her chin with the back of a hand. She chuckled and shook her head when he nearly cracked a joke about her weight, handing him back the water bottle.

    "So, besides practice, practice and more practice, it's just getting a feel for things, huh?" she mused. "Trying to puzzle your way out instead of just ploughing through..." Well, that was true of everything and not just fighting, right?

    "You know there's no way I'm going to get the hang of this in one session," she told him, matter-of-fact. "We're in it for the long haul." She cracked him a small, cocky grin. "Question is, are you willing to put up with me for it?"

    "Oh, yeah; sure, sure." He remarked coolly, taking the water canister. "Whenever you want to test your mettle, I'll agree heartily. You would make a great throw rug to just lay out and beat; a great stress reliever."

    Of course he was joking, but it was true! Throwing Jo around would help take a lot of things off his shoulders. Hey, he'd be gentle, he promised! But a good beating was hard to refuse when it was laid before your very feet!

    "Anyway, if I can put up with Red and make him cry, I can handle you no problemo." He smirked back. Trying to beat him in a cocky match was not going to work, young missy. "Hey, problemo...What is that? Certainly not Grounder."

    "I knew you still wanted to get back at me," she said with a punch of his arm, but the grin on her face clearly showed she was playing around with him too. "Well, here's a newsflash for you, smarty-skirt: I don't go down that easily. You yourself would make a very nice welcome mat for me to wipe my feet on." She even emphasized her statement by rubbing her bare foot atop his thigh, pretending to wipe it clean on his robes. Hah! That should burst his bubble!

    "I think 'problemo' is just slang; I wouldn't worry about it too much," she replied then, lurching back to her feet. She did a few more stretches, then bent down to put her head gear back on and place the mouth piece back into position.

    She raised her hands in the air. "Well, come on. Let's see you take the first swing this time around."

    HUUUUUURGH! Did she just wipe her feet on his--HUUUUUUUGH! Never mind the welcome mat bit! She just dirtied his robe that took a good twenty minutes to iron! TWENTY MINUTES!

    With a snort, he got up as well and made sure to pad his fists with some knuckle coverings to reduce potential damage. Ohohoho, he was going to show her the first punch, alright. And he was going to make it count, too.

    "Hmph." Was the only warning she got. With a flash of hands, Zurg set out to show her exactly what it meant to fight. And he did that by feigning. As he made it seem like he was going to punch her face head on, he faked it at the last possible moment and tried to give her a light yet firm open-palmed cuff to the side of her head.

    BOP!

    His hand rattled against the helmet, taking up most of the impact, but she did jerk out of the way, wincing. Oh, that had been a good feint. So he wanted this to become a fistfight, huh? She could do that; sure, she could.

    Balling her hands into fists, she returned his attack with a similar one of her one, darting forwards in a feint, then stepping back and jumping to the side, spinning around to gain momentum and slam her fist into the side of his face.

    Oh, Zurg saw this one coming. Like taking candy from a grub, he successfully blocked her spinning blow and, being the purple jerk that he was, he took it and threw it right back at her; with even more momentum than she had originally used!

    Oh, of all the--BAM!

    "Ahh, craters!" she hissed, clutching her nose. She hated it, absolutely hated it whenever she hit her nose! It was sensitive!

    Ohhh, he was going to get it now, and get it good! Forget subtlety and feinting this time. She was going to go all-out on him.

    She ran forwards and swiped her fist across his face, following it with a punch to the gut, and a knee-jab to the groin.

    There! That ought to teach him a thing or two! Using her own fist to punch her nose, of all things...

    Uh-oh. She looked pretty ma--He barely got to finish that cruiser of thought as Jo, who looked mighty upset, came at him with murder in her eyes.

    "Now, Jo...May I remind you that this is a friendly, innocent spar between frIENDS!" Zurg squeaked, feeling her padded fist just narrowly brush against his face. And if that wasn't worse, she tried to pin him hard in the gut! He luckily saw that coming, and he leaped half a foot to dodge, but upon coming back in Jo had yet another nasty surprise for him.

    DING!

    She had kneed him right in the solar system.

    "Hey, hey, hey! What are you trying to do, kill me!?" The Evil Emperor barked again. Thank the Cosmos for armour! THANK IT. Now less than half content, he was starting to get a bit riled up himself. Careful, careful...He couldn't really give her a good throw-down like he could Red. She would never withstand the dam--screw it, this was worth it.

    Jo was officially going to get a royal welcome to the school of hard knocks.

    The moment she tried to gun for him again, he grabbed her forearm and rushed behind her, twisting her arm back (but gently) and pressing the limb firmly against it. Next, he firmly kicked her knees out from under her and got her to kneel into a position of submission; himself not far behind to keep her like that.

    "Hah! I got you now!"

    ((Coin to see how strong it is))
