Sparring Match Part 3 of 3
In collaboration with @LuckyBlackCat
Staying in place as Breeze shook her head, Kerianne relaxed her stance, ready to stop, only resuming it again when her opponent took up her own battle pose. She did wonder whether Breeze truly wanted to continue or if she thought she had to, but she wasn't about to make the situation even more awkward. "If you're sure," she said, double checking that this truly was the best idea. Given Breeze's normal disposition, the young girl looked as really as she'll ever be. "I won't use that move again, but let me know if you want to stop."
"...R-Right, thank you."
Chewing her lip, hoping she wouldn't do anything else to upset Breeze, she reached down and slipped into a block's shadow, the later tensing as she did so. Feeling the lightheadedness set in as she emerged by another cube, she remained in a crouch. Positioned in front of the block so Breeze wouldn't be able to grab it and use it against her, she reached out, hooked her arm behind her opponent's ankles and pulled. Completely blindsided, Breeze felt herself falling forward, however instead of panicking like earlier, she used the free momentum to her advantage. Pressing her hands onto the ground, the green haired girl twisted and winded her legs around in hopes of making Kerianne stagger before pushing her feet towards the blonde to get her to let go. Thrown off-balance, Kerianne had to slam her hands against the mat to keep steady, freeing her opponent. As Breeze rolled forward to create space, she brought a hand out to grab a nearby block and threw it at her, taking the time to stand before beginning to rush her, sending a flurry of jabs and knife slashes once she was close enough.
Kerianne only just managed to duck the projectile in time, but before she could do anything else, Breeze had closed in on her. Pulling away from a knife stab and reaching out, she warped through the nearby block's shadow, the blade hitting only the faint black wisps she left behind. She popped up to the side of Breeze, but at the very second she did, something smashed at the other end of the room, eliciting a squeak from the other. That would have been enough of a distraction in itself, even if not for the dimming of the light and the shift in the shadows. Toppling as if someone had pulled a surface from under her feet, she landed sprawled on the mat, Breeze only landing on her knees beside her.
"H-Hey, are you okay?" The green haired girl questioned wearily. Despite speaking to Kerianne, her eyes were focused on the glass shards littering the ground. Someone could really get hurt from those...
Twisting round and staring over to make sure Gabby and Momo were alright, Kerianne sighed at the glass shards on the floor. "Well, something like that was bound to happen sooner or later," she muttered, staggering as she rose. She glanced from the mess to Breeze. "Let's go help." If nobody did, somebody could get hurt. One step, though, and the room wobbled around Kerianne. Picking up broken glass in her current state probably wouldn't be the best of ideas, but she couldn't just leave it lying around, especially with the other fight growing more and more intense.
Breeze knew better then to have Kerianne try and pick up glass with how disoriented she looked.
"Don't w-worry! I can pick it all up on my own!" She claimed as she placed the rubber knife back onto her stomach for safe keeping. "Plus it won't hurt if I j-just use my Quirk..." She explained further before bounding off, her energy levels nowhere near as exhausted as most probably would've thought. Still clearly nervous around the newcomers, Breeze shuffled awkwardly around Momo and Gabby as she placed her hands and arms on the floor, skin eventually becoming littered with pitch black specks. Every now and then she'd cast a nervous glance to Kerianne before immediately looking away.
