An Easy Meal

Post by JollyLabyrinth on Mon Jul 18, 2016 12:37 am

Sam leaned against the wall next to the entrance of the Fire Opal, the top several buttons of his shirt undone to reveal is scarred chest. He had a cocky half-grin on his face; it had been another successful, if disappointing day, at the ring his gang ran in Mocca City. Four consecutive victories for him, all against non-super opponents. It got a good amount of money in his pocket, but no sense of satisfaction. He always found the Opal to be a good place to fill that need, even if it meant losing the change he made in the ring. Fighting was never about winning or losing for him; it was always for the challenge, which was seldom provided in the ring. This was due largely to the fact that most of the people who came to fight had no powers, and no one knew he did. He was very private about his powers, wanting to hone them more before coming out public with them.
But here, at the Fire Opal, there was always a challenge to be had. People came through with worthy powers all the time, and even the occasional martial artist from Jadetown gave him a run for his money. So today, like so many before, he sat by the entrance and waited with his smirk, scanning the crowds for decent opponents.

Agni scratches the side of his head before giving a loud sigh crossing his arms, hardly a day has passed really and he didn't know what he was going to do, he has to clear his head, focus. Sadly the only thing he could think to do in a situation like this was fight, something to take his mind off this whole exploding punches thing. With a soft sigh he slowly noticed he was coming up on some resteraunt. Looking at it for a moment he noticed the fire opal. Maybe he should grab a bite he was staving after this whole thing.

With little idea on what to do he slowly approched the area his tie moving as he did before he noticed someone with a large scar on his chest. He never liked scars having two parallel ones on the sides of his face from before. Still he looked this man in the eye before he tried to continue into the resteraunt. Should his eye of caught the man's he would see a fire that was always in Agni's eyes. A powerful glance and Agni did have his way in muscles and all, since he was a fighter before getting his powers.

Something about the kid intrigued Sam; sure, it was obvious he was a kid, but there was something about him that reminded Sam of himself. Besides, in this day and age, being young meant very little. He slide his way in front of the boy and put a hand on his shoulder. A wicked grin crept across Sam's face as he eyed what he assumed to be a free meal up and down.
"What's a kid like you doing out in East Diamond all by your lonesome? Surely you've heard about the gang violence that goes on out here. Or maybe you're new in town?" He smirked, gauging the kid's reaction; if he caught any fear or intimidation in his eyes to such a weak and common implication of violence, then Sam knew the kid wouldn't put up a decent fight, and so not worth his time.

Agni paused as the man slid in front of him, don't make eye contact Agni, what did mom teach you. Still Agni showed no fear in his eyes as he silently batted the mans hand away from his shoulder as the man looked at him. "New in town." he responded in his still calm confidant tone, sure he was a kid but he was stronger then most men. Since most men didn't work out as hard as he normally did. "Excuse me." he said as he tried to make it past him once again.

However this time Agni wouldn't be caught off guard, should the man of tried to grab him again Agni would dodge or bat something away, dodge if it was a grab, bat if it was a attack seeing as this man didn't seem as kind as Agni would be.

Sam took a half step back as the kid batted his hand away; surprisingly strong for a kid. No, stop thinking that, Sam thought. Not just a kid. He's someone worth a scuffle with, maybe even worth paying the lunch for. And new in town? What better way to say "Welcome to Ruby City" than a Fireopal brawl? He strode up to the kid and tried to clasp his hand on his shoulder, but the kid dodged out of the way. Impressive reflexes, he thought.
"Well, if you're new in town, then how about I give you some local advice, eh? This here's the Fireopal. Owners have a policy here: Loser pays both tabs. After one too many fights broke out in here, they figured that was easier than attempting to keep order with a bunch of hungry and drunken super-powered freaks." He grinned, finding a bit of bigotry always got emotions high; helpful for starting a fight, and winning one. "But people frequently end up on the losing side of fights they didn't start. Kids are easy prey for some of the gangers who hang around. Free meal for them. I'd recommend high-tailing it outta here, squirt." He narrowed his eyes at the kid, still keeping his trademark wolfish grin. "Unless you got moxie."

Agni seemed to read him well as he quickly sidestepped out of the way of his grab, luckily it wasn't a attack so he at least had some civility, or so it appeared. Agni stood quietly listening to the man talk about this area, where he was and what the policy was. "So it's basically a free for all lunch huh?" He said crossing his arms and having a trademark grin on his face with his eyes close.

"If there's one thing I can say I have it's Moxie, why are you asking." Agni said before opening his eyes clenching his fists with a smirk. "You looking for a fight?" he challenged, even if he lost it would still be fun, that's all he wanted and he had more then enough on him to float the bill of this man.

The kid's eagerness and directness caught Sam off guard ever so slightly, but he refused to let it show. It had been a while since he had seen someone face him with such confidence, let alone a kid; Sam couldn't help but respect him for his bravery, or perhaps foolishness. All the same these days. He cracked his knuckles and smirked. "Normally, this is where'd I'd feed you some bull-crap line about how 'Nooo, I'm not looking for a fight, just the well being of a--' blah blah blah, but yeah, kid, I'm looking for a fight. Boring day, needs some spice in it." His eyes lit up wickedly, but his tone became more serious, like a businessman sealing a deal. "Alley just around the side of the building. Public enough so there's witnesses if one of us tries to get more than our opponent involved, but secluded enough that only we have to get hurt. Loser pays both tabs, as is customary. You in, pipsqueak?" Sam gestured to the alleyway; it was easily large enough for a decent fight, and, based on the marks on the ground and walls of it, has been used multiple times for this very reason.

Agni let the smile on his face grow a bit more, he wasn't about to lose to someone calling him a pipsqueeks. Agni quickly cracked his own knuckles quickly undoing his tie and stuffing it in his pocket, he would of undid his gloves like normal but he decided to leave them on and instead pulled the back of them to make sure they were on right.

"Fine then, witnesses to watch this 'pipsqueek' beat you." Agni said before recalling his power, he was so caught up he almost forgot but he instead just shook his head. This guy wanted some spice he was going to give it to him, plus not like he could just turn it off. It was his power he should use it as he wants. Agni quickly followed quite a fair distance behind the man. Any sight of something would be countered of blocked by Agni, at least if he physically could do either.

Sam strode into the alley and turned around to face his opponent. He raised his fists and spread his legs slightly, taking up his typical boxing stance. Gauging the distance the kid was at, he knew rushing him would be nothing short of predictable and embarrassing, so he slowly started walking towards him, watching to see his reaction. Upon seeing the kid was going to let him take the first swing, he sprinted forward a few steps and stopped hard, skidding forward and kicking up a large amount of concrete dust into the air. Immediately after this cheap play, he would go in for a straight punch to the kid's face with his full natural strength, putting none of his blood-power behind the punch. Years living fighting for a living meant this was still strong, but his stance and the sudden moves made this attack quite predictable, and he knew it. The attack was more to gauge the kid's fighting style.

Agni wasn't the one to fight cheaply. He respected a fair fight with no foul play. Though that being said he could easily see why someone would, since he was on the streets this wasn't a fair fight, they were playing to win. Just like how Agni wouldn't expect someone playing for their life to not chest he was expecting some foul play, maybe a little less then off the bat.

With the dust being kicked up Agni dropped his stance lower holding one hand in front of his face the guard against the dust and one below his stomach to block a possibly attack. The fist came for his face as his ready hand guarded against it. Once it slammed into his arm he threw up his lower one to grab it, after that he would spin around pulling the man before sending a side kick into his side letting go at the same time trying to use the force of his kick to throw the man off. If this attack did land he would noticebly not be using his explosive power, though his eyes caught some dust so once he let out he would quickly wipe it out holding his opposite hand up in a guard.

Sam was caught largely off guard by the grapple, his muscle memory expecting a block or dodge after his long day of boxing. He managed to regain his balance rather quick, using his powers in his legs to steady himself before he would stumble more than a step. Hoping this quick recovery would catch his opponent off-guard, he rushed forward again, sweeping a powerful backhand punch, attempting to catch his opponent's guarding hand with his forearm and pushing into his face with the back of his knuckles. The attack left him wide open for a counterattack, so he was banking heavily on his opponent still being off balance.

Agni had made quick work of the Dust and looked in time to notice the man spin around aiming a backhand at him, but how? Agni knew he was strong enough. He should of gone a bit farther, his side should of hurt a bit more. Quickly registering this Agni ducked below the spinning backhand before spinning around using his arms to ground himself Simi below the mans stomach before throwing a powerful kid upward towards his stomach, Agni threw a lot of his weight into it and since he was lower on the ground now he could afford to miss, but not afford to this kick to do nothing like the last one.

The kick lands square in Sam's stomach, and had a much harder impact due to Sam's momentum from sprinting forward. He stumbled back and held his gut to recover for a moment. When he looked back, he noticed the kid on the ground and smirked; it was an incredibly vulnerable position to have your hands on the ground in any sort of fight. He quickly stepped forward with his left, and delivered a swift kick to the kid's hip, rolling him onto his back.

Agni smirked as his target was hit, he tried to get up but the man recovered faster then he had expected and Agni took quite a blow to the gut, however he used this to his advantage instead of rolling on his back kept going before throwing his arms up jumping a bit landing on his knee before getting back in a guard stance quickly. This allowed him to make some distance between the man and him and Agni thought for a moment.

He took a lot from that kick but the one before Agni couldn't take his mind off of it, not distracting just a looming thought. Shaking it off he kept his stance one hand back the other forward ready to block whatever came his way, or dodge should he feel the need to.

On seeing Agni get to his feet, he quickly took a step back; this kid knew how to fight, and had the muscle to back it up. He only got two hits in, but they were solid hits. Sam gauged his opponent's fighting style for another moment and saw it relied heavily on counter attacks; annoying for Sam as he liked to keep the punches rolling, but often meant they were out of their element if they had to throw the first punch in a combo. He gave the kid a cocky grin and lightly gestured him with his hand, a typical "bring it on" gesture. "C'mon, squirt. Show me what you got." He loosened his fists, making it seem like he didn't take the kid seriously, but he had his eyes fixed on the kid, ready to bat away any punch that came his way with his left hand and swiftly counterattack with a powerful right punch once the path was clear.

Agni had to admit, this guy was tough. Most people would be down with those two hits alone due to the placement. His hip slightly hurt but it was nothing that critical. Then the guy made a gesture with his hand asking him to bring it on, Agni simply smirked. As if he would foolishly go into that like a idiot. No he had a better idea.

Agni ran forward as if he was going to throw a rush but quickly turned before getting to close and coming up against the wall closest to the man, using it as balance he would then throw a powerful kick towards him, while this was strong and very unexpected as a maneuver it came with downsides. First being Agni had no control in the air and would be forced to slide down the wall. Second should he miss the head strike it would leave him horribly open to a counter attack. But the risk was worth the rwards. He just hoped he caught him off guard.

Sam was taken off guard by the rash attack, forcing muscle memory to take over, his blood-powers causing him to duck out of the way of the attack much faster than should have been possible for a normal person. He realized almost immediately that should his opponent have time to register this information, the dynamic of the fight would likely change. He decided to try and force his opponent to focus on their mistake, and so rushed forward, nailing the kid in the back of the head with his right elbow as he landed.

Agni was stunned into silence as his attacked missed. He was quickly punished as he went with it like the kick and rolled away creating more distance between him before holding himself back up on one knee before getting up rubbing the back of his head. He knew he would of made a mistake so he wasn't focused on the hit, but on the man.

"Fast, way to fast." Agni had noticed that had caught him off guard, should he of dodged he still would of bit hit due to panic. But he went faster then he should of been able to react to the rash decision. "You, you have a power don't you!" Agni said holding his fists out before going back into his guard stance. He wasn't ready for a answer but a attack recalling this was still a fight. He was ready to block and counter any attack thrown at him.

Sam narrowed his eyes, his wolfish grin gone. He wasn't all too happy about being found out, but wasn't too surprised by the fact. "Smart kid. Able to think pretty damn fast in a fight." He sighs and grins again, his charade back on. "No point in hiding it anymore..." He kneels down lower, then bursts forward with a sudden sprint of almost twenty miles an hour, attempting to plow into the kid and tackle him into the wall with the force of a slow-moving car. Should the kid manage to move out of the way fast enough, he probably wouldn't be able to stop himself before plowing into the wall himself, leaving himself open for pretty much any counterattack.

Agni almost smirked. He didn't because that wood of given him away. Instead of getting into a stance he stood there arms at his side as he sprinted towards him. "Just confirming so I don't have to hold back." he whispered silently to himself as he waited for the man to come to him, once he was close enough Agni would throw a uppercut straight to his jaw, normally this would most likely end in Agni's arm breaking.

Except at the end of this certain upper cut a powerful explosions would happen similar to the strength and force of one firework and while this itself was powerful. The mark was really since the speed this guy was going added with the uppercut. Well it would be painful he knew that much.

Sam was sent flying upwards and backwards from the force of the punch, causing him to smack into the far wall. He falls down to the ground with a thud, and holds his head as he tries to comprehend what just happened. He saw the kid not moving, he thought that was because he was caught off guard... Then bright light. And pain. Lots of pain. A broken nose, definitely. And he's suddenly across the alley. He spends a good thirty seconds propped up on one knee, his eyes readjusting from the light of the blast, just staring at the kid. His teeth were now red with blood that dripped out of his mouth and down his chin. If uninterrupted for this time, he would simply stare at the kid and say, "That's a thing that happened."

Agni went back from the sheer force of his attack, a good two feet before he managed to stop himself. Agni was surprised at the result, science eat your heart out. Still feeling a bit peeved and since he knew this guy wasn't the one to play fair or since he was to far to see the broken teeth and nose Agni rushed forward as fast as he could to close the distance before jumping up and throwing a flying roundhouse towards his head, with a explosion on the end of it also.

Still since the recoil once that happened Agni would be sent in the opposite direction twoo feet where he would land on his back before rolling back-up in a guard position.

The force of the explosive kick sends Sam sprawling clean out of the alleyway and into the streets, causing multiple passersby to jump back in surprise. His ears ringing, he quickly manages to scramble to his feet, and face back into the alleyway, holding up his hands open-palmed instead of clenched fists. "Woah, woah, calm down, squirt! You got me! I'm outta the ring, outta the ring!" He has a large burn on the side of his face where he got kicked from the blast, and the beginnings of a black eye, but somehow still managed a smile, less cocky and more exhausted. "You win, kid. Just stop tossin' me around like a frikkin' toy!" He laughs nervously.

Agni still held his stance but relaxed when he threw his hands up and declared he won. With a small crack of his neck Agni then walked over taking his tie out of his pocket and quickly putting it back in the original place it was. "Alright then, sorry I guess I got a little to excited." Agni admitted scraching the side of his head. They were fighting but now he felt bad about hurting him.

"But for the most part that was a good fight." Agni said before offering his hand to the man for a handshake, despite the fact he won apparently Agni was still a nice kid. "Guess I earned that meal." Agni added with a small chuckle.

Sam wiped some of the blood that was coming out of his nose off of his face and laughs. "Don't worry about it. I got stupid and panicked when you called me out. You earned the rights to those hits, and most definitely a free meal." He cracks his neck and starts heading inside, stopping by the door for the kid to catch up. He certainly looks worse for the wear, but still keeps smirking; it was a good fight; he played stupid, got punished. Always good to get put in your place, he thought to himself.
