    That sneaky little.... and damn you too Diceor, what did Key ever do to deserve this?!

    She again, didn't react verbally to getting shot, it was kind of menacing in some aspect, as he tried to move away she decided to close distance again, she didn't speak, her face not visible behind the Khaki helmet and gold visor...

    She Went for another three aggressive swipes, not quite ready for the finishing blow just yet. She'd switched almost solely to CQB now, He prompted it, so he would get it in full....

    She was over confidant. Though maybe that was unfair. Key'esop was definitely a competent, skilled opponent, there was no question of that. Violence was what she was good at, it was what she had been trained for. As far as Barney could tell, her ability to fight and to kill was a big part of who she was. There was a kind of confidence in that. To know that you were dangerous, that you were this lethal, graceful thing, a living weapon of precision and skill. But you could get lost in that. It was easy to get caught up in your own perceived invulnerability, and once you did that, you got reckless. Sloppy.

    Key had a glowing sword the size of Barney's arm, while the former, untrained security guard only had his gun and his bare hands. It should have been an easy kill, and he was pretty sure she knew that. But, Barney wasn't making it easy for her. (With a little help from pure and simple luck.) He knew he couldn't count on her slipping---she was far too well trained for him to hope for that---but it had to make her angry that she couldn't just slice and dice him like she wanted to. He was a lot safer here, no matter what she might think, than he was letting her run around and nibble him to death with that sneaky little pistol of hers.

    He couldn't keep it up forever, though. Barney let her back him up towards the northern door of the room, narrowly dodging her blows. He wasn't quite as lucky this time around, though---once, he didn't quite get out of the way in time, and the glowing sword opened up a long, shallow cut across his chest. (His CP uniform was going to need a hell of a lot of repair once this was over with.) Still backing away, Calhoun snapped off three more shots. Might be time to think about grabbing one of those smoke grenades. Retreat, catch his breath, and then come back for more.

    Diceor was clearly a dick today, so She would wait a bit, She, instead of facing him head on again, seeing as Diceor wanted to screw her over that way, she Turned and ran from Barney. Some would see it as cowardace, but she didn't really care in that regard, she was often time a survivalist rather than trying to tank things through.

    She Headed back south again, and dropped her second smoke grenade on her way, Making it harder for her to be followed.

    She moved with fairly large strides, light of foot to return to hiding, she'd covered fair ground, and had gone into hiding, the only dark spots in this arena were inside the houses, and honestly with the distance she'd covered she wasn't doing too badly, she still had more left in her than him, hopefully she would be able to get around to dealing some serious damage soon....

    Cowardly? Maybe. Personally, Barney called it smart. Realizing when the tide of battle wasn't going your way and strategically retreating to regroup and reassess might not have been the bravest thing to do, sure, but it was always, always better to do the smart thing and live, than be brave and dead.

    (Of course, that was somewhat hypocritical of him. Because, the second innocent lives were involved, being smart flew out the window. He'd be brave and dead if it meant the people he cared about, the people who were depending on him, were safe and sound.)

    Barney did not pursue, though the smoke grenade wasn't a waste: It meant he had no idea where she'd run off to. For his part, Barney did some running of his own, retreating back to the north side of the map to catch his breath and reload. He, like Key, ended up in the little building on his respective side of the map, and hunkered down to try and patch up his wounds. They'd still slow him down, they'd still hurt, but it'd be good to make sure he wasn't going to bleed out in the middle of a fight.

    She quietly pulled out the magazine of her small M6K and put in the new one, she didn't know where Barney was, which would be to her disadvantage... but she would wait... She, unlike many, could happily wait for hours, days for the perfect moment she had done so in the past, it was the makings of a good agent, being able to wait for as long as needed...

    She would get a bit more rash soon, but that was merely out of curiousity, though that part of her wasn't very active right now. She was more focused on the fight at hand, and understandably so, so she stayed waiting, bringing her back to her many days of stakeouts and general espionage work, timing was everything...

    ((In the interest of not having four rounds of going 'and then they both waited some more', here's a time skip. By mutual agreement, 4 AP back to both parties, assuming that the appropriate amount of time has passed.))

    ---

    Barney didn't have quite as much patience. He'd never needed to sit on his ass for days on end, waiting for the right moment to strike, though, with his experience undercover in Civil Protection, he could certainly appreciate the Long Con. It didn't matter much at the moment, though: Even if he'd had the patience to play the waiting game for an hour or two, it'd only hurt him in the long run. His wounds weren't serious, and they weren't bleeding too badly, but they were going to slow him down. Sooner or later, he'd get stiff and sore. And, if he sat around for a few hours without patching them up properly, then he wouldn't even have all that nice adrenaline pumping through his system to help keep him going.

    That being said? He still needed a minute or two, just to catch his breath again.

    Now, was it in through the nose, out through the mouth? Or visa versa. Some crap like that. He'd heard the schpeal, how new arrivals to Portal Breach got "de-powered", but, since he hadn't really been all that powered beforehand, he hadn't really given it a second thought. Until now, as he found himself winded and bleeding. It felt just like the old days again, and not really in a good way. Nostalgia was great and all, but not when it involved pushing yourself to the very edge of your limits, and just a bit beyond, for the sake of survival.

    He was going to have to get back in shape, and fast. Of course, that was sort of what this was for, wasn't it? For him, at least. No matter what Ms. Key'Esop was getting out of it.

    Fortunately, it didn't take that long to get his breath back. He wasn't 100%, by any means, but the longer he sat here, the longer it gave her to think up something sneaky. Barney rose to his feet, and vaulted the window to the east, out of the little building, dropping into a crouch behind the wall. He realized he was backtracking, just a bit, but... he liked those rooms, they provided far more cover than the shipping crates, and staying in close quarters seemed like it was slightly more in his favor. Even if Key did have a massive glowy sword-o'-death.

    Key'Esop had been rather quiet, this could be as much a waiting game as she wanted, it did not bother her. infact, the longer it took, the less she had to dwelll on other thoughts, which was good in a sense.

    She had decided she would stay out of sight for now, and let him run out of paitence, taunt him into it, so she moved north slowly, going from cover to cover, avoiding being seen as much as possible, though she could feel her sangheilan instincts starting to gain dominance over her human instincts. This was normal for her in a fight, that she would think more like the Aleins she spent five years with than a human in pro-longed fights.

    So, not immediately clear, but her mentality right now was changing rapidly, which would have effect quite soon.

    So much for close quarters... He didn't have a clue where she'd disappeared to. Barney managed to make it, moving cover to cover, in a half circle around the arena without any sight or sound of Ms. Key'esop. Ending up behind the northernmost wall just west of the south little hut, the former security guard took a moment to reassess his strategy, here. He didn't particularly want to go and make a target of himself, but neither did he want to wander around until he stumbled into a carefully laid trap. Damn it.

    She'd resisted being lured in, thus far. He could only assume that trend would continue. Guess he was just going to have to walk into an ambush. That was, only marginally, more preferable to walking out into the center of the field and trying to find her from the direction of the shots, again.

    Barney skirted the low wall, and hugged the one that ran north, making his way up to the northernmost storage container.

    Key'Esop was a very... conflicted person when it came to fights and honor, on one side she was alow, and tended not to play fair, but was not creul, she had standards, but still relied on the methods that got the jobs done, such is the way of an assassin, on the otherside, she often tried to stay bound to the honor of those sangheili way, which was more about prowness in battle over surviving, such conflict of morales, standards and systems caused problems. She often would rather be known and side with sangheili values, Her current name was never officially accepted among UNSC and ONI registers, it is not a name she bore when consulting fellow ONI or UNSC personnel, nor most humans back home, as to do so would outcast her, but here was a place to regain pride in the name she had fought so hard to win...

    She had heard something, movement, south of her, she grabbed her blade once more and moved south, quickly finding her opponent, without a passing thought, that blue blade sparked to life again, as she took swing once more, hopefully barney would not be as lucky this time.

    ((Sorry this took me so freaking long...))


    Well, he certainly hadn't been expecting tha-

    No. That was a lie. Barney had, most certainly, been expecting Key'esop to swoop in out of thin air and hand him his ass, pretty much at any moment. He'd been a little surprised that she hadn't, before now. Of course, he hadn't been expecting it right this second, any more than any other particular second. As it was, he barely got his gun up in time to block the blow. It wasn't the brightest of moves and, if he'd had time to actually consider his options, he might have reconsidered. The OSPIR was durable, to be sure, but the ONI agent's sword was... slice-y.

    The first blow took a chunk out of the barrel of his gun. The second blow sliced it in half. The words Oh, crap didn't have time to finish forming in his brain, when the third blow came. He managed to get, mostly, out of the way---otherwise, there would have been pieces of Barney on the ground, keeping the pieces of his gun company---but the tip of the blade still caught him another long, shallow cut, from his right collarbone and down, across the pectoral muscle below it.

    Okay. Ow. Barney let out a huff of air through gritted teeth. What he should do, the smart thing to do, would be to drop a smoke grenade, and retreat. But, without his own means of ranged offense, she'd be able to pick him off from afar. No, as deadly as that sword was, if he had any chance of staying in the game, he had to stick it out. If Key wanted to dance, then they'd dance.

    He took a lunging step in, ending up, if Key had both arms straight out and extended, somewhere at elbow's length. Normally, he'd be at something of an advantage, just in terms of general weight and strength... except, of course, Key was in that impressive armored suit, and not too shabby herself when it came to throwing her weight around. Still, the sword looked like it (hopefully) was the kind of thing that would need just a little room to maneuver. If he got in real close, right up in her face, she'd... well, she'd probably have just as easy time slicing and dicing him, if he was being perfectly honest, but it was an idea. He had to make his hits count, too.

    They weren't exactly punches, so much as general whatever the hell works blows. He aimed for the joints of her armor, the places where pieces met, and had to move. An elbow into the right shoulder joint, a quick jab with the other fist was aimed for the place where her helmet met her suit, and finally a knee into the joint where hip met torso...
