(Just to answer previous questions, it will start out inside the large temple, then gradually lead outside into the ruins, and eventually, into the outer, surrounding forest.)



Then steady-paced rain drops fell heavily on the roof of the Zhou Hu Temple. The tapping rhythm was a welcome moment of Zen for the single warrior, sitting direnctly under the Buhdda statue, facing the door. Hew wore dark yellow robes, with a thick, brown sash. His hair was long and pulled back in a ponytail and bun. A long spear sat across his knees as he sat meditatively, controlling his breath through his nostrils, he peered on into the open door as the rain fell unrelenting. Closing his eyes in a near trance, he began to notice the interruption in the rain's falling, and soon after, the clapping steps on the ground of a human body. He opened his eyes slowly to see his challenger approaching. A dark silouhette of dripping rain, she slowly approached, up until she reached the large, arched door way of the temple. Her clothing was deeply soaked, and she seemed particularly upset about this.

"Please, tell me you are the warrior that challenged me..." muttered the girl, retracting a letter from her pocket that was written on rice paper. The warrior knew this to be his own.

"Yes, I am your challenger. My name, is *ReFlux*... Do you wish to begin, or would your rather wait to dry your clothes off..?" the sitting warrior asked politely and solemnly.

"Let's just get this over with..." the girl snarled in frustration. "smart a**." she mummered under her breath as she distracted her blades from their sheets. She held two aritculated short blades. A knife, and a longer dagger. "Just so you know the name to curse as you die, I am Sakura!" she growled as she began rushing in for the first attack. She leaped forward in an acrobatic flip at she came down onto the sitting warrior with blades downward. But they were stopped by the man's spear held high above his head. Before landing down, the girl flipped over the man once again, using her blades leverage, and tried a sweeping attack on the man's back, but before she had gotten her body in position, the man had already swung around with a quick thrust of his spears bladeless end, landed a blow on her solar plexus.

This caused the female warrior to shoot back a few feet, in coughing attempts to regain her breath. This whole transaction caused the young girl to become emminsely frustrated, and heightened her battle hunger. Spinning her blades around her finger, she quickly tossed the knife down the sitting warrios path, causing his to have to roll across the floor in order to dodge. He sighed releif as he landed, but was suprised by the small stream of blood trickling down his cheek.

Before he knew it, the female warrior was rushing at him with her dagger drawn for his neck. As she leaped forward for another flip attack, the man placed his spear's tip behind him in the ground, and kicked his legs hard across the floor, causing him to leap backward in the air to dodge the girls attack. She continued forward with her dagger, but ReFlux dodged her charge stab. She continued on however, and regained her knife. Flipping them artisticly between her fingers, she readied for another attack. It was time for ReFlux to become the aggresor. He readied his spear above his head, and stood wide...[/color][/size]

[color=Navy]((Hey [b]ReFlux[/b], have we fought before?))

Sakura approached the robed man slowly, she had underestimated him at first. The rain drops pattered against her, sliding down and dropping off to the ground. They were staring at each other, waiting for the other to make the next move.

The man had a long reach due to his weapon, which was never too good for her since she mainly relied on close combat, unless she got close enough to him that he was unable to use the spear to its full capacity. As a thief, she had a calculating mind and planned everything out so as not to severly put her life in danger.

Sakura snapped to attention when she saw the spear flash as he charged toward her, she tensed her body, awaiting the right time. As he was within his spear's reach of her, she bent low at the knees and launched herself up into the sky, the man reached up with his spear to stab her. Flicking her knife into the same hand as her dagger, she grabbed the shaft and used it to propel her over his head, landing on his other side, she dove into the pouch on her left hip and quickly flung a barrage of shuriken at his back.

The male opponent whirled around and twirled his spear quickly, deflecting all of the shuriken, so he thought, there was one hidden that sliced through his left side. He was shocked and held onto the new wound, trying to stop the small flow of blood. He looked up at her but she was smirking, casually twirling her dagger and knife, she winked at him and pulled out a few shuriken, then she juggled the objects. He narrowed his eyes, she was planning something. Then she flung her hands out, the shuriken one after the other flew toward him. Her opponent used his spear to help lift him up into the air, out of the danger of the shuriken, but Sakura sent some up to him.

Her hands were empty except for the knife in her left hand and her dagger in her right. She was ready for him, whatever he was going to throw at her.

OOC: (I beleive so, if you knew me as DoubleBDaigo.)


The small wound in his side told ReFlux that it was time for him to get serious. As he flew over Sakura's head, he hughed through his nose loudly, causing him to force his entire body down upon her head, with a push from his chi. The action caught the girl off guard completely, and she dodged to the side, but not before the spear blade slashed down her left tricep, causing her to drop her knife.

Suprise filled the girl's, as ReFlux saw, and used it once again to his advantage, beggining a barrage of spear thrusts at the girl. She began backing up, and leaning backwards just to avoid death in the spear head's path. As ReFlux pushed her back towards the door, the girl saw an opportunity to end his rush and back-handspringed out of the temple, into cobble stone courtyard. The rain was persistant as ever, but this didn't slow either of them down.

Having sufficient distance between one another, Sakura threw a scorpion at ReFlux's face, but to her dismay, and without slowling down his attack barrage, ReFlux stab the scorpion precisely down the middle, causing it to split in half onto the ground with a small *tink*. In a split second, ReFlux ended his barrage of attacks, and slammed the spear butt down onto the ground behind him and placed his hand down in front of him. He motioned for her to come at him, with a smirk.

[color=Navy]((I knew it, I have fought you before! Rematch! I don't even remember who won. That was ages ago.))

Sakura winced as she felt the warm liquid of blood being diluted by the harsh, cold rain. She debated whether to bandage it or not and decided to. She slipped her dagger into its sheath, and her knife that she had retrieved. Sakura slid her hands up to her hair and untied her bandanna that held her hair. She felt the leathery material with her fingers, she had several others at home so she could spare one as a bandage. Sakura tied it around her left tricep quickly, using her teeth to aid her. She tied the ends thrice to make sure it stayed, and it was tight to put enough pressure that would hopefully stop the flow of blood.

Sakura had been watching ReFlux the entire time in case he decided to make a move while she was bandaging her wound, he hadn't. She flexed her left arm, it was sore to use but she could still use it. She drew out her dagger and knife again.

Sakura charged at him, dodging from side to side in case he was trying something. As she got closer to him, she 'disappeared' only to 're-appear' behind him. She sliced at him quickly, catching him across the back in a diagonal slash going from left shoulder to right hip. She hadn't done a disappearing act, it was due to her agility. She chuckled and flipped away, he had his own advantages, and she had hers.

((Sorry if its a little short))

ReFlux winced at his wounded back, but only that much. He no longer cared about wounds received in battle. They always healed quickly anyways, and that shallow wound wasn't enough to worry him. By this time, Sakura was at a very close range, smirking as she slashed in wild combinations, beleiving she had a full advantage on ReFlux, as he dodged and maneuvered out of her attacks way, but without the ability to counter. He was mearly leading her on. The rain, by then, had made his long robes and hair wet, and very heavy, something he had counted on. As soon as her reach was inches away from him at a maximum, ReFlux spun quickly, and slapped his heavy hair into the girls face with the force of a whip. As he spun, he rolled into the air off his feet, and slammed his spear butt into the ground. Sakura was momentarily blinded by the shot to the face, and ReFlux spun down his spear's shaft, and swung his feet forcfully into the girl head, causing her to fall to her left several feet. She landed hard, with a splash inside a Zen sand garden, which had flooded up.

As Sakura began to raise up from the heavy blow ReFlux dealt her, she saw though blurry, water filmed vision, his spear head coming down near her head as he yelled out a battle cry, that was accompanied by a strike of lightening in the grey sky. She mustered up all of her strenght and leaped from the shallow water and landed on the shoulder of a Buhdda statue in the middle of the garden. She saw as his body landed down, the emmense splash of water erupting from the ground, this due to the force put behind it. Sakura looked in awe and fear as ReFlux raised his head slowly, having a look of furious concentration upon her.

Sakura was slightly intemidated, but not scared, nor stunned. "Shaaaah!!!" she yelled as she leaped from the statue towards ReFlux, who was waiting in the raising water. She quickly slipped into her pocket and retracted several throwing knives, all held in between her fingers, she through them precisely at ReFlux, who had perceived this and begun twirling his spear once again, causing the rain to also riquce (sp?) off of it, as did the throwing knives. Once her finished this, he found Sakura once again behind him as she attempted to slit his throat from behind. Seeing her reaching arm, ReFlux released his spear momentarily and spun around under her dagger and palmed Sakura in the stomache, causing her again to flail backwards. But unseen to his eye, Sakura had thrown her fighting knife into ReFlux's lower thigh, causing him to cease his advance. He quickly attempted to retract the knife, but before he knew it, Sakura was leaping at him with her dagger again, his spear still on the ground next to him...

[color=Navy]Sakura tried to bring it down upon him but ReFlux was quick. His head shot up along with his right hand, his left hand was still trying to wrench the knife from his thigh. His right hand grapsed her wrist and forced it up. Sakura let out a cry and jumped up, putting her weight on it from above and using both hands for more strength. ReFlux used his chi and pushed the dagger away, the weapon flew out of Sakura's hand, down the path somewhere. Sakura swiftly picked up his spear and brandished it.

The weight of the large weapon and the reach of it was new to her, as she usually used nothing but short range weapons like daggers and knives. Sakura back-handspringed away from him, crouching in the distance with the butt of the spear sinking into the soggy ground. She was beside her dagger now and slipped that into her sheath. She blinked up at the sky quickly, it was still raining, it didn't look like it would stop anytime soon.

ReFlux had pulled the knife free and looked over the weapon, they were now using each other's weapon, both not used to either one. They were staring at each other again. Sakura watched him wearily, he was a formidable opponent. Sakura's soaked hair and clothes hung down, she pushed her hair over her shoulders and hoped that it wouldn't get in her eyes.

ReFlux came toward her, the knife was in his hand and pointed toward her. Sakura straightened and flipped the spear around so the blade was facing the ground. She blocked ReFlux's incoming attacks quickly with the aid of the shaft and did a swift sweeping upward motion, cutting his front. She crunched the butt of the spear into the ground and used it to help her evade her opponent.

Sakura looked around the area quickly, she saw the path that lead off somewhere and glanced at ReFlux, deciding to take a chance, she ran down the path, with him following after her. She hoped that the path led somewhere that she could use to her advantage. She reached the end of the path and saw that it was leading to a bamboo forest, she was overjoyed and dashed in amongst the plants, if she could put distance between herself and ReFlux then she could get lost inside the forest. She ran carefully, not disturbing the plants or breaking any because they would make a track right to her. As she ran, she tried to formulate a plan of attack.

((Sorry, I just felt we should get to the next area. Let me know if you want anything changed about the posts.))

((Getting interesting...))



ReFlux nearly lost Sakura in the thicket of bamboo, the only thing tying her to his senses was the sound of her feet on the soppy ground. He walked slowly and patiently through the forest, holding both of the girl's foreign weapons in his right hand. He couldn't stand the instruments. The short, akward blades felt strange to him, and he was sure to get his spear back. As he continued walking, he was startled by the hair raising on the back of his neck and spun around quickly to see nothing, as he turned back, he saw Sakura's scorpion's peircing the air towards him. He tried his best to evade, but still caught three of the eitht caught in his right shoulder. This caused him to drop the dagger and knife he carried in his hand, but before they hit the ground, he saw the light image of his spear's white horse hair jutting at him, the girl attached at the end of the bit, holding on with both hands.

ReFlux quickly dodged the side and took the spear inbetween his side and left bicep, he then quickly whipped his body to the left, throwing Sakura off the spear and slamming into a grouping of bamboo trees. The reselient trees bounced her off of them and shook water down upon her body. ReFlux ripped the jagged scorpions from his shoulder and gushed blood from the deep wound, growling at it. He then looked on to Sakura, who was still laying limp upon the soggy forest floor. ReFlux approached her slowly, and carefully. He was beggining to beleive that the blow from the trees had rendered her unconcious. But just as soon as this thought passed, Sakura leaped off the ground unnaturally and skimmed past ReFlux like a crawling lizard, then leaping forward, she rolled towards her knife and dagger and picked them up in her left and right hands.

"Playing opossum doesn't seem very practical in such a battle..." ReFlux said solemnly, a look of dissapointment on his face.

"It sure fooled you, didn't it?!" she yelped out with a laugh. ReFlux smirked in response and lunged forward in a suprising frontal attack, startling Sakura with its speed, he lunged towards her and nearly skewered her through the stomach, but she had leaped upward, and landed on the spear shaft with her feet, ReFlux had noticed it's stability was due to the fact that his spear head was stabbed through a bamboo tree. "Touché..." she muttered at the suprised ReFlux, who was caught by a back-flipping double kick to the jaw. This caused ReFlux to fall back with his spear coming out of the tree, he lifted up quickly, grunting as he wiped the blood from his chin. As soon as he lifted up, he watched Sakura lunge at him again, pushing her self from a bamboo tree with her feet, ReFlux responded angrily with a reverse back kick to the girls open chest, causing her to fall backwards on spot. She leaped up with a cough only to see ReFlux himself leaping backwards in a backflip and slamming his spear butt down, he then rendered his chi and pushed the spear sideways at the girl with tremendous force, Sakura panicked and dodged sideways as the spear bounced off a bamboo tree precisely and was caught back again by ReFlux he then leaped high in the air for a crushing downward blow on Sakura.

Sakura gasped in terror...[/color][/size]

[color=Navy](('Tis the final post for the battle, 'twas a good match ReFlux))

Sakura rolled away and got to her feet swiftly as ReFlux's spear hit the soggy ground, they were both tired from the battle and the endless rain continued to beat on their exhausted bodies.

She quickly climbed the closest bamboo tree and wringed her hair and clothes out, taking away some of the accumulated weight. She repositioned her dagger and knife in her hands and jumped up, using the branch as a spring board she did and aerial flip, she slashed at ReFlux twice, the second one connected on his shoulder. She rolled herself up as she landed so she didn't take damage.

Sakura charged him, slashing in a deadly pattern, ReFlux blocked them skilfully with his spear. She flipped her knife high into the air and threw a bunch of shuriken at him before catching the knife and hurling that too.

ReFlux had spun his spear to deflect the shuriken but had stopped, allowing her knife to pierce him in the side. Sakura ran over, ReFlux was fending her off with the spear but he was getting weaker, as was she.

Sakura twisted the spear out of his grasp and pushed it into the ground, using it to swing herself off the ground and spinning around, she kicked him in his right temple and he fell to the ground. Sakura panted but knelt and checked his pulse, he was still alive.

She pulled her knife out of his side and sheathed her two weapons. Sakura untied the bandana from her arm and put it back around her hair and walked off to the town to clean up, dry up, and rest.
