Erika Sommer VS Yi Helme
Yi looked slightly disapointed when Maple king pointed at him and said he couldn't be alone. But nothing was said other than that, not even when he said he didn't catch his name. He was then paired with Erika. studying her as she walked, He noted her laziness in her walk, could be she was truely lazy. But Yi learned long ago not to judge a person how they appear/ carry themselves. It could be a side effect from her own quirk, or a ploy to lower his guard...or that she was just lazy.
He simply rested his bo-staff on the ground behind him. He only armed himself as he was planning on fighting multiple people. But one on one, as the Maple then stated, he didn't want to have an upperhand. As she turned back towards him and eyed him. She didn't make a move towards him, to which he sighed. He would have preferred for them to make the first move as he liked to watch before acting.
So he decided to move towards her, taking no offensive stance. As if he was walking through the park. When he was close enough he suddenly sprang forward with suprising speed aiming quick jab to the left cheek with the back of his left hand.
By the time her opponent made it in front of her, Erika had her arms crossed, keeping the same bored expression. It actually wasn't so much a bored look as it was an uninterested, impolite way of looking at people, actually. His sudden burst of speed was impressive, but not surprising enough - he did look exactly like the close quarter combat type. His hit never landed, though, as something seemed to have stopped the hit. At the same time, Erika took a few steps back quicker than her usual pace, but still not 'battle fast' .
What stopped the hit was a shadow mass tendril thing that seemed to have sprouted out of nothing. That thing blocking the hit, Erika stepping back and her counter attack all happened in a very short amount of time, mind you, meaning that she at least wasn't just boasting. She had good control of her Quirk, whatever it was. Right in front of her, at her feet, two growing black spots seemed to grow on the ground until two balls of what could only be described as shadow came floating in front of her. She raised both her hands, the balls levitating around her arms.
"Momo stole the spotlight already for any kind of war cry like 'Hey, dodge this!...' or whatever." she sighed "She always steals the spotlight, but whatever. Catch this." One of the two ball suddenly sprung into action and headed straight for the opponent
Yi's eyes opened slightly as his fist was stopped by mist tendril. With an inquisive look, as if he was more interested than annoyed that his attack didn't hit. Yi didn't move when Erika took a few steps back, his eyes never leaving her as he remained focused on her. He shifted only slightly when two balls of shadow rose from the ground, only to prepare himself for the next logical attack.
Erika then went on to say the other girl always steals the spotlight, to which he raised an eyebrow. She then changed up the 'phrase' and sent one of the balls towards him. He twisted slightly, and raised his right arm to bat away the ball just enough to deflect it away from his body. "Why must one yell a 'warcry'? It is a foolish thing. You are litterally giving your opponent notice that you're about to do something."
His voice was calm and inquisitive as he quickly moved forward, realizing this ball that he batted away could come back he would take this moment to push her back.
He then attacked her with two punches, first aimed to her face and the second towards her belly. If blocked or hit, it didn't mattter, he would then continue with a swift twist, lifting his right leg and aiming his knee for her side.
Right as Yi was charging her, Erika moved with speed she didn't display up until now; the remaining floating ball went above her head and both her hands joined up inside of it, only to back down in a fighting stance, the shadowy ball seemingly split in two now having 'enhanced' her hands. "I know!"
she yelled at no one before managing to dodge the head hit. She blocked the stomahc's hit with both her hands - and surprising strength. Yi would noticed that not only was her block stronger than she should be, but the energy wrapping her hands felt something. It was...heavy, thick.
Despite her best efforts though, Erika failed to notice her opponent's incoming third attack. "Damnit-- !"
she spit as she took the hit, jumping away yet again. This time however, the aura spread a bit around her. It took the form of a pinkish semi-transparent mist. "Wow! He's fast AND strong - isn't that totally amazing?!"
said a loud voice coking from Erika's location. Erika's eyes rolled to that statement as she mumbled something along the lines of 'Annoying
'. "...Yeah, he's faster than I thought, but doesn't look that smart. Gosh, such a pain...Come on, let's finish this now, Lee. Or whatever your name is..."
With an impressive lack of motivation, Erika raised her arm and a misty tendril launched forth from the mist's mass to to go straight for Yi. It came from the left, hopefully forcing him right - where another tendril was launched along the floor as to be harder to spot. Her hope was to get him in a pincer attack.
Yi only smiled when she managed to block his first two attacks. She was very quick to be able to actually catch those punches. Alot faster than he first saw. She was clearly stronger as well as he could feel her hands did not budge at his attack. Was this because of the quirk covering her hands? Possibly, it did feel thick and heavy, perhaps absorbing the impact of them. Though it could clearly be she was just already enhanced with out it, only using it to cover that fact.
While she jumped back, he moved back as well...hopping a few steps back on the balls of his feet. Suddenly another voice appeared out of nowhere. Completely opposite of the girl who stood infront of him. At first he thought it might be Momo, but it clearly came from Erika's direction. She spoke to the voice and attacked lazily once again. He found it odd she would move so slowly in this attack. He realized her first ball that he dodged hadn't come back. It must be what she was planning! He jumped to the right flatting out his body horizontally and corkscrewed, looking back back to see if the ball was coming towards him. He didn't see it.
Cursing under his breath he landed, lookingforwad just to see another tendril coming towards him, and knocking his feet out from under him. He grunted as he twisted again, using the momentum of his feet now knocked behind him to use in a somersalt roll towards Erika. A smirk on his face, as he wasn't at all irritated she outsmarted him. It only spurred him on to try even harder.
As he rolled to his feet. He sprang forward even more launching a punch for her face with is right hand. However he aimed just left of her face, not wanting to even punch her. He stiffened his arm to prepare for a swiping block if she did. His true goal was to get his left leg behind her own, then to grab her shoulder with his arm that he 'missed with' and push her to her left, using his leg to trip her. Leaving his body open but prepared for any body hits befor then.
The smirk on her opponent's face removed any smile from Erika's. "Damnit."
she thought when Yi was backing off for a moment. "This guy feels nothing... no anger when he got hit or outsmarted. So damn annoying..."Eyes up, here he comes!"
The voice answered out loud to her thoughts. She would be annoyed, but he was right - Yi was on the offense again. She evaded the first punch with ease...or so she thought. Before she could get back to safety or say any witty comment, she spotted his leg going behind hers and it was too late to block it; she's been feinted. "Ahh!"
Her body tipped over and, with the force of Yi's push, hit the ground with a great thud
Yi's body seemed to be joined with Erika's as he twisted with her and fell to his left knee. His calf and thigh pinning Erika's leg between them as he followed up with a left handed Jab aimed at the girl's temple. Erika raised her hands mid punch. "Stop!"
Erika spat just before Yi's fist stopped a mere inch from her left temple. "I forfeit, alright? You win...". He held it there for only a moment before allowing his soft smile to come up again. He stood up, twisting as he did to unlock her leg. I appreciate the match.
He said calmly as he bowed his head to her in respect.
He then offered a hand to the girl, wanting to help her up. I admit you tricked me with the first ball you sent and never used again. I thought for sure you were going to bring it back at that moment."
Erika looked up and crisped internally at Yi's smile, looking away and denying his help. However, the pinkish mist - which earlier felt as if it was tangible - actually grabbed it. The mist was still lingering around Erika, kind of like an aura that englobed her body and anything close to it; which included Yi's outstreched hand. It felt as if the mist suddenly tightened around his hand and, gradually, a form started appearing. From Yi's hand going upwards, the mist took the form of what looked like a torso with two arms, the rough shape of a head area with two bigs eyes and a wide smile. The entity looked like something out of a halloween decoration store, kind of like one of those ghosts with those pointy teeth - but pink in colour. It was floating above Erika, she ebing where it's legs would be.
Happy Dusk, the name of Erika'sq quirk, shook Yi's vigorously with both of it's hands. "Nice battle, mister no-smile. You truly fight with guile! Pow, Bing and ding, you gave her a good whopping, Hahaha!"
The entity bursted out laughing, finally letting go of Yi's hand and mimicking as if it was holding it's non-existent stomach.
Erika quickly stood back, cursing at the pink cloud and waving both her arms around as if trying to disperse smoke. "That's enough! Ok, leave now, please!"
Happy Dusk looked around some more before it'S face disappeared back into the mist, then the mist dispersed entirely as Erika turned off her Quirk and turned to Yi, visibly bothered. "You didn't even use a quirk to defeat me, did you? Geez...You really were a pain from start to finish. Next time, though, we'll see if you can pull it off again."
she said before walking back towards her friend Alex and their teacher.
