    Arro spun up and away like a flying top after tossing Zs'Skayr. Throwing his weight around wasn't the prerogative, rather it was unavoidable when, despite being small for his own species he was still larger than most of his opponents here. Nearly everything he did inevitably involved barreling over enemies or thwacking them across the earth. Size coupled with strength and an abundance of youthful unhindered energy tended to garner those results.

    The drai continued to rise as long as his momentum carried him. At the apex of his last wing-beat he cornered and fixed his eyes on the opponent below him. Zs'Skayr had dislodged his payload of sand and now free of ballast was rising up to meet him. The fluttering cloak and emaciated face grew rapidly larger as he levitated, his grip on his scythe sharpened, bringing tendons into vivid detail and foretelling his next move. The drai's gaze bored back into his displaced eyes, in contrast relaying nothing but focus and an amber glow.

    Arro cloaked himself into teardrop shape and eagerly mirrored his foes intentions. He zipped abruptly earthward, as if gravity had only now become aware of his presence, rocketing towards the wraith like a targeted missile. A moment before passing, he flicked his taloned wrists out and rolled his neck aside to duck the half-moon blade.

    They shot past each other, graceful and smooth, neither jostled or strayed from their course. Both turned, and now Arro rose and Zs'Skayr fell as they repeated the pattern. Wings pumped vigorously behind him in cyclical strokes and again his blades flicked outwards into the passing body. One of his shoulders stung, cold and wet and numb. Then they broke apart, passing each-other again, and Arro turned at his apex to fix his owlish gaze on the form below.

    Blood darkened his back, but with a body flooded with adrenaline he was only aware of it via the touch of wind. The flexing of his callused hands and swish of talons in the air relayed where the bulk of his thoughts lay.

    It seemed the curse of this world was beginning to take effect as Zs'Skayr began to feel fatigue. That was something he had never seemed to feel before, never in a fight, but it was obvious and becoming overwhelming with each attack. He knew he would not win this, that was not what bothered him. Okay, it bothered him a little. But what truly bothered him was the fact that he may or may not have to eventually stop to rest during a fight. That wasn't ideal, and never was it appropriate during such a high speed bout. He'd have to hold out as long as he could, but with a strike of Arro's talons flinging him against the ground again, he had a hard time getting back up.

    His scythe still under the sand, he knew where it was, but Zs'Skayr also knew it took too much of his own energy to wield it. A simple attack for now would be fine. Just until he could gain his strength back.

    For now, the specter lunged up from the ground and tried an aerial tackle, aiming at Arro's belly to push him back and downwards.

    Arrogath turned in the air, his wings scything about him to hold his bulk suspended in place. He scanned the night breeze for a second before a disturbed trail of wind fixed his attention on the desert floor. Zs'Skayr had fallen, his plummet cushioned by dunes and a light frame. He must be tiring if it had taken him this long to return to the sky.

    Arro watched the hooded figure levitate out of the sand, granules flowing like water down it's cloaked back as he exhumed himself. The drai let the wind take him, transitioning into a circling pattern in the high dark. Below, Zs'Skayr lunged. Surprising Arro by leaving his scythe behind in the shifting sand. Shooting up towards him with the remaining energy he could muster, Zs'Skayr zeroed in on the dragon, ramming into his gut.

    Had Zs'Skayr been larger he might have knocked the wind out of him. As it was he only managed to baffle his competitor and bruise under the scales. Arro's body was lean and sharp, the muscles wrapping his torso were hard as rock while straining with the rigors of flight, pair that with the speed at which he was moving and Zs'Skayr's attack was negated almost entirely. Trying to push him downward from this angle with the wind itself pushing Arro elsewhere was impossible.

    Arro peered under his chest, wildly speculating as to just what Zs'Skayr was trying to do, then snorted indignantly and returned his neck to its proper upright position. He raised the massive appendages that suspended him and nonchalantly snapped them to his sides, buffeting his opponent with a flap. Then promptly flicked a hind leg up to dislodge the man from his abdomen, hooking him and flinging him away.

    No free rides.

    Fucking dragons, how do they work!?

    That thought came to mind as it seemed his ramming attack was pretty useless. It hurt him more in the process than it did Arro. His opponent looked at him, most likely with mild amusement across his face before dislodging Zs'Skayr from his person. Though the attack to remove him wasn't too painful, he still hit the ground with a loud thud and some sand was pushed upwards. He was tired, but perhaps not in the sense of normal 'living' individuals. It was still hard to keep up when one was so weak here. As for Arro and what to do next...

    Looking down around the sand, he held his clawed hand up and mumbled something as, suddenly, the scythe ripped through the sands and was firmly grasped by its owner. Zs'Skayr looked up at Arro and, with a good swing of his arm, launched the scythe towards the dragon. He knew this was either a hit or miss attack, but it would at least do some damage if it did manage to find its target. Otherwise, that's about as much Zs'Skayr could do right now. It was then time to think of back up strategies. The specter knew he would not win, but going down without a fight wouldn't be nearly as rewarding, would it? Nor would it give him a good name if he did--go down kicking and punching rather than flop their like a fish.

    Zs'Skayr didn't know something, however.
    He was far closer to losing than he thought, but his drive to still fight was apparently stronger than his will to give up. Might as well make your last turn or so count, ghostderp!

    Arro turned his horned head, attention drawn by the sound of metal slicing through air, and raised a palm. A loud smack cut the sudden silence as his talons enveloped the hilt of the farmers tool. He rumbled like thunder, examining it casually, then began to rapidly descend.

    He didn't like this, the fight was ending too swiftly and he'd only just gotten his blood up.

    Still...

    He landed on his hindlegs, shaking the dunes as his body buckled forward.

    Better than nothing at all.

    Arro stabbed the weapon into the sand and surged forward. Falling onto his forelimbs, he slew his wings towards Zs'Skayr, clapping them sharply in the air and producing shockwaves. The powerful gusts lanced through the sand toward his downed foe, exploding debris into the air as they studded a trail towards the wraith.

    Welp.

    His attack missed (what a surprise), but Arro's rebuttal wasn't exactly hard to move from. Zs'Skayr worried for a brief moment that it'd be more painful than the last attack, but instead, it was nothing too complicated, and the alien easily moved away and to a different part of the dunes. His movement wasn't very long, however, as he fell down again, exhausted and feeling weak. This place... why did it make you so weak? It didn't feel fair at all, but now wasn't the time to whine about what was fair and what wasn't.

    Stretching out his hand, the weapon wiggled a bit in the sand before returning to its master. To be honest, the alien was surprised Arro hadn't broken his weapon yet. Though Zs'Skayr wasn't really one to give compliments or show any sign of 'kindness' and what have you, he did appreciate the fact that Arro didn't disarm him. But with that thought, maybe he'd have to upgrade this weapon to be more durable, in case other fighters wouldn't be as respectful...

    Either way, Zs'Skayr decided to just attack by lunging himself at Arro and slicing once more. There was little else he could do in his current state, mind you, and he was ready to fall anyway. One last hurrah before going, right?
