Stepping out into the arena, Ayero felt fully prepared for her next match. The Fanalis woman looked forward to facing off against another opponent, a light tingle of anticipation rising in her stomach. The coliseum attracted many different types of fighters, some of which Ayero could have gone most of her life without facing. Encountering different types of foes helped her sculpt and enhance her own fighting style.

She sized up her opponent as he appeared from the opposite end of the coliseum, first taking note of the great sword strapped to his back. A few moments passed to give both fighters a good look at each other before the bell rang, signaling the start of the match. Both fighters ran towards each other, Ayero unsheathing her blade and Polliver reaching to place a hand on the grip of his great sword. The pair kept their focus on eachother, neither one appearing undeterred as they sped towards eachother. Suddenly, Polliver’s hand moves from his blade to behind the metal weapon. Swiftly retrieving a short bow, the man waits until Ayero is within range before quickly firing off 10 arrows in a Fiery Rain, aimed to delay and/or distract his opponent.

Ayero grunts as the arrows begin to fly, mentally chastising herself for not taking a closer look at her opponent. Perhaps she would have seen the bow strapped to his back then. As the arrows rain down, Ayero shifts on her feet while dodging them, not risking a backward glance as they formed a circular pattern as they struck the ground. The last arrow strikes Ayero’s left shoulder, exploding into a fiery blaze unexpectedly. [1] The blast catches Ayero off guard as it scorches her arm, and she shifts her attention from Polliver who had begun moving towards her to her injured shoulder. That moment of distraction was all that Polliver had needed to close the gap between him and Ayero. But the Fanalis woman was not deterred for long and she quickly fixes the man with a sharp gaze, flourishing her uninjured arm and sword to the side at the same moment Polliver dashes towards her with his sword held to the side in preparation for attack as well.

Both sword handles swing their blades horizontally from opposite sides, Ayero’s Protect and Sever clashing with Polliver’s Wicked Death. As their blades meet, Polliver pushes more force behind his weapon, allowing it to complete its path after meeting with Ayero’s. Holding his great sword in a now upwards position, the warrior delivers a downward slash, the first of four in his Slice and Slash technique. Keeping her sword low and to the side, Ayero raises her right arm in a Simple Block to meet with the first two strikes of Polliver’s sword. As the third strike meets her armored arm Ayero thrusts her left hip forward, kicking he left leg out and upwards in a sweeping motion to deliver a High Kick to Polliver’s torso. [2] The force of the Fanalis-grade blow startles the man mid-attack, sending him back several meters from Ayero.

Despite the heavy knockback, Polliver recovers quickly and returns to his feet swiftly, focusing on Ayero. With her Fanalis speed and strength, him laying on the ground in pain could lead to a quick defeat. Thankfully his years of training and numerous coliseum matches had hardened him into a resilient warrior. After feeling her physical strength for himself, Polliver decides to try and end this, aiming to overwhelm the woman to her defeat. After returning to his feet, the warrior gathers his magoi and concentrates it into his legs before bursting forward with Furious Speed, his massive blade held at the ready.

In an almost negligible amount of time, Polliver was upon Ayero and swung his great sword towards the woman, aiming to deal a heavy slash to the woman. Ayero almost didn’t have time to raise  her sword and go into a single spin, her Pinwheel Block intercepting Polliver’s strike. That’s…magoi manipulation! Ayero quickly recognized Polliver’s enhanced speed as a magoi manipulation technique and readied herself mentally for anything else he may have up his sleeve. As she came out of her rotation, she saw from the corner of her eye another descending blade. Gritting her teeth, Ayero knew that she wasn’t in the proper position to try and clash with it but made an attempt to Parry Polliver’s Righteous Strike with her blade. The Fanalis woman’s eyes flare as she realizes that the power behind this blow was far more than the previous strikes Polliver had dealt.

”Kkttt…!” She quickly realizes that her parry would not be able to stop the great sword from completing its path. Though Polliver’s blade pushes past Ayero’s own after a moment of resistance, the resulting slash that tore along her torso vertically was not as severe as it was intended to be as the blade had lost some of its momentum from Ayero’s attempted parry. [3] Ayero snarled against the pain, her shoulders and torso slumping as she placed a hand over her torn flesh. Her head snaps upwards suddenly and she re-establishes her stance, prepared to block another strike from Polliver. But it seemed that the other warrior had put most of his energy into that strike, as he was panting heavily and watching Ayero carefully. The earlier blow to his midsection was now playing a part in his momentary exhaustion.

A light flickered in Ayero’s eyes at the realization that her opponent had exerted himself heavily, hoping to work that to her advantage. She moved her hand from her flesh to Kabu’s back, the black serpent stirring awake and fixing his lidded red gaze onto Polliver. With Kabu’s attention now roused, Ayero dug her heels into the coliseum tile and sprung from her position, the adrenaline pumping through her system helping her to ignore the pain. Knowing that the effects of the hormone wouldn’t last for long, Ayero aims to finish Polliver off as quickly as her body would allow.

She positions her blade in an offensive manner, holding it out and to the side as if she were to strike. Polliver’s gaze still hadn’t left her, watching the woman’s every movement with trained eyes. He respond by raising his own blade in preparation to meet her own, gripping the hilt of the weapon tightly as Ayero closed in. Suddenly, the Fanalis woman drops her center of gravity once she came within striking distance, performing a Swift Roll to move behind Polliver. At the same time, Kabu tightened his muscles and lashed out and upwards, coiling his body quickly around Polliver’s closest arm to immobilize the limbs with Struggle. The snake winds his way tightly around the foe’s arms and torso, both actions taking Polliver by surprise.

Re-emerging behind her opponent, Ayero is relieved to see that both her movements and Kabu’s immobilization left their opponent momentarily stunned. Not wanting to waste this opportunity they had created, Ayero deals a quick slash to Polliver’s torso, below where Kabu had settled himself. [4] She did not need to use the full extent of her strength, only wanting to fell the man and not kill him if possible. As the decisive blow hits Polliver, the man loses his balance and falls to the ground. Kabu catches Ayero’s eyes and she flicks her head to the side, signaling that the fight was over. Slithering from the fallen body, the snake chooses to follow her from the arena rather than take his place around her torso, noting the heavy damage dealt there and the careful way she moved due to pain and blood loss.
